Hitting the road
Federal assessors are still visiting county-maintained roads to tally the cost of repairs for damages by landslides from wet weather. Damage to all the roads in the county, including statemaintained roads, was taken into account to reach the minimum damage amount of $295,000 to qualify for federal disaster money. NEWS, A3

County’s Rotarians reaching out By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
FORT THOMAS - Campbell County's Rotary chapter is seeking to bolster its membership ranks and increase the amount of service the group provides locally and internationally. "I would say it is the best networking organization that you can join," said Arne J. Almquist, president of the Cincinnati Rotary chapter during his guest speech to an open meeting of the Campbell County chapter in Fort Thomas May 11. Almquist is also the director of Northern Kentucky University's Steely Library. Rotary's motto of "service above self" is what the organization is about and what members often enjoy most, Almquist said. "You come for the networking, but you stay for the service," he said. Almquist said he enjoys talking and learning from other Rotarians in different professions and finding out what they're concerned about. Rotary is an organization that is life-changing for people by providing members with chances to meet other Rotarians from around the world, take-on leadership
roles, and by assisting others, Almquist said. Typically people are invited to join Rotary via person-to-person contacts, but the chapter wants to reach out more directly now to increase active membership, said Arnd Rehfus of Alexandria, president-elect of the Campbell County chapter. Both international and local causes are targeted by Rotary, he said. Internationally, Rotary has been successfully working to eradicate the disease Polio, Rehfus said. The goal of eliminating Polio is 95 percent complete, and the only reason it's not already gone is because some areas of the world are extremely difficult to get the medical supplies and vaccinations in, but that Rotary is steadily making progress, he said. Rotary also helps with projects around the world to provide clean or purified drinking water, he said. Procter & Gamble has recently embarked on a partnership with Rotary International to provide clean drinking water in the African countries of Malawi and Tanzania, Rehfus said. Locally, Campbell County Rotary members collect food for local food pantries, and have
worked with Habitat for Humanity and the Hosea House in Newport on projects, he said. Campbell County Rotary will be working with the YMCA on their facility in Dayton, Ky., to create a computer room by painting and cleaning it up, Rehfus said. The local chapter's members have spent time helping clean out and renovate a home in Newport, and in providing potentially lifesaving defibulators to the Bellevue Vets. There's also a regular scholarship that any high school student from Campbell County is eligible to apply for through an essay contest, he said. Members of Rotary are encouraged to bring their own ideas of how to help the community based on their own experiences and observations, he said. "Somebody says that they need help there or they need help here and we say, 'Yeah, we can pitch in and do something there,'" Rehfus said. For information about joining Campbell County Rotary call Arnd Rehfus at 859-635-5088 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more about your community, visit www.nky.com/campbellcounty
NEWPORT - Through one daughter’s efforts to preserve a piece of her mother’s past, others can now get a unique look at what life was like in Newport during the Great Depression in the 1930s. Linda Schilling Mitchell recently published a book titled “Dear Miss Schneider, Please Excuse Walter...,” a collection of excuse notes given to her mother, Victoria Schneider, while she worked as a third grade teacher at York Street School in Newport from 1937 to 1939. “My mother kept a scrapbook of her time at the school, saving all the excuse notes parents sent her,” Mitchell said. “Seeing these really gives you a keyhole peek at what life was like during the depression and the hardships people went through.” Mitchell said at first, her only goal was to scan and preserve the scrapbook, which was getting worn and old. “It started as just kind of a tribute to my mom, but what she saved in this scrapbook is so interesting I wanted to be able to share it with others,” said Mitchell, whose mother passed away in 2008 at age 90. “It includes some really sad stories about those times.” One example that shows how things were back then is a note written to Schneider from the mother of a child named Walter. The note reads “Walter has been very sick with sore throat + toochach. I am not able to have his tooth pulled rite now or his tonsills removed as my husband isint working study.” While many of the notes were similar to this, talking about families not having enough money for medical expenses, warm clothes and shoes and even food, others were funny, Mitchell said. Mitchell said the book, considered a biography memoir, is undergoing some minor tweaking right now, but should be available by the end of this week at most bookstores, at the Kentucky Haus Artisan Center at 411 East 10th St., Newport, and online at www. dearmissschneider.com.

Campbell County emergency response agencies win grant By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
Firefighters and emergency responders have been well equipped for years with working radios, and a $295,350 federal grant will help Campbell County agencies defray half the cost of keeping up with a federal mandate requiring an
upgrade of radio technology. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Assistance to Firefighters matching grant will cover costs for multiple agencies including 10 fire departments in the county, the Campbell County Office of Emergency Management and search and rescue and

water rescue teams. It’s great to receive the money, but also a great achievement in cooperation between all the agencies that pooled their resources together to support and back the grant application, said Campbell County Judge-executive Steve Pendery. “It’s a wonderful thing when multiple jurisdictions are going to have their needs addressed in one grant like that,” Pendery said. If each jurisdiction tried to write up a grant application on their own, they’d all have to have the technical expertise required in the questions that have to be answered in the process, he said. The Fort Thomas Fire Department took the lead in the grant writing and proposal process to FEMA, but others from multiple agen-

The money will help the county comply with new Federal Communications Commission (FCC) “narrowbanding” requirements to reduce radio bandwidth by the start of 2013, Schultz said. Not complying isn’t an option because while the old equipment would still work,

agencies that didn’t comply would be subject to fines, and then agencies would be ineligible for the federal funding to help pay for equipment upgrades, he said. Many of the radios purchased in recent years will meet FCC regulations going into effect in 2013 with less-costly reprogramming at about $30 per radio instead of buying all new equipment, Schultz said. In total, the grant will pay for 75 new portable radios and the reprogramming of 260 radios, he said. It also covers 247 new pagers, the reprogramming for 168 pagers, replacing 59 mobile devices and the reprogramming of 53 other mobile devices, Schultz said. Schultz said the county has also received a grant for replacing some of radios affixed to the about 22 early
warning devices scattered around the county. The Campbell County Consolidated Dispatch Center had previously received a $279,000 federal grant to bring their equipment into narrowbanding standards, so the final grant for the radio upgrades will take care of the county when it comes to the FCC’s new 2013 guidelines, he said. There’s another FCC deadline of 2018 that’s looming when it comes to narrowbanding that emergency officials are already considering when buying new radio equipment, but some of the technology to comply with those set of regulations doesn’t even exist yet, Schultz said. Previously, the 2013 deadline had been moved back several times, but the Jan. 1, 2013 deadline seems to be the final extension, he said. “We’re going to have to do this one way or another,” Schultz said. “Getting the grant allows us to handle the cost when I guess everybody’s budget is pretty tight.” For more about your community, visit www. nky.com/campbellcounty

Campbell County receiving federal aid for roads email@example.com
Campbell County-maintained roads damaged by landslides from wet weather are eligible for emergency federal disaster relief money to fix them as federal assessors continue to visit all the sites to tally up estimated costs. Damage to all the roads in the county, including state-maintained roads, was taken into account to reach the minimum damage amount of $295,000 to qualify for federal disaster money, said William Turner, director of Campbell County Office of Emergency Management. However, the county-main-
tained roads met the $295,000 damage minimum limit all by themselves without counting any state-maintained roadways like the slide damage on Pooles Creek Road, a state road, in Cold Spring, Turner said. No final estimate on the damage total will be available until assessors from FEMA visit every site and alert the county to the amount the agency will award to the county to make repairs, he said. The county’s road system had multiple instances of where the hillside slipped onto the roadway, and that accounted for much of the county’s damage, he said. “The county has already
Dayton, Newport post offices closing NEWPORT— The United States Postal Service announced Monday it will close two small post offices in Northern Kentucky: the post office in Dayton and Spence Station on Monmouth Street in Newport. The last day for Dayton post office at 513 Sixth Ave. and the Spence Station post office at 1015 Monmouth St. will be Friday, May 27. The postal service in 2009 put both post offices on a list of small post offices that could close. The decline in mail volume nationally, 43.1 billion pieces in the past five years, has led to the need for closing some post offices, the postal service stated in a press release. In recent years. Dayton residents rallied around its small post office to try and
save it. Rumors of it’s impending closure in 2009 spurred hundreds of people to sign a petition opposing the closure. Many elderly residents in Dayton walk to that post office and can’t drive to any other, said Dennis Redmond, Dayton’s city administrator. A post office has been in Dayton since 1896 and is an important part of the city’s identity. The next closest post office is in neighboring Bellevue, 361 Taylor Ave., and is about a mile away from the Dayton post office. Newport’s main post office, 420 Columbia Street, will remain open. The Spence Station Post office has been open since 1962 across from city hall. Kentucky News Service
begun work on some of the sites because the damage was such that they couldn’t wait on FEMA,” Turner said. Pictures were taken of the urgent needs sites so that the county might still be reimbursed for the cost of the repairs, he said. While there was plenty of damage to county roads, traffic has not been significantly impacted, said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine. All county-maintained roads are in the southern portions of Campbell County, Horine said. “The bottom line is we did not have any total road closures, but we did have numerous locations where roads were either dam-
closed because of flooding of the Licking River and blocked the only other exit for people living on the road, he said. Mostly, the county has many places along roads where the water from the heavy rains caused erosion right up to the edge of the road that requires fixing soon so the roadways don’t start sliding away too, Horine said. “I would say that compared to the state roads we were lucky because we didn’t have to do any total road closures, but we still have a lot of damage to repair,” he said.

aged or that there is slippage right up to the edge of the roads,” he said. The county did lose about 25 percent of one section of the roadway of Lees Road in the area south of Claryville, and that was probably the worst slide for the county, he said. The heavy April and early May rains did cause a temporary closure of Hissem Road near the Pendleton County border on Easter Sunday after rushing water blew out a culvert pipe and most of the fill holding up a bridge over the culvert pipe, Horine said. Repairs were made that day because the other end of Hissem road in Pendleton County was

Alexandria school officer quietly eases into post By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
ALEXANDRIA - School resource officer Mark Branham stands in the cafeteria at Campbell County Middle School and waits for students to approach him – leaving a space for the long shadow cast by the death of his predecessor James “Stumpy” Sticklen. Sticklen died March 4 in Corbin, Ky., after he collapsed during training from a medical emergency.
Branham started about six weeks ago as the new school resource officer based at Campbell County Middle School – the largest middle school in Kentucky by enrollment. “It was an absolute tough role for officer Branham to step into after Stumpy’s death – a beloved SRO,” said CCMS principal David Sandlin. Sandlin said he asked the students when Branham started work to “give him a break” on his first day.

Branham has already continued to defy the misnomer that a school resource officer is primarily there to arrest students when they are misbehaving, Sandlin said. “He’s down there doing lunch duty and building relationships,” Sandlin said of Branham. Branham is proactive, having moved the SRO office to the front entrance of the school, and intently watching the winds and weather that resulted in students spending 40 minutes in their safety zones one day recently, he said. Branham, a police officer for 11 years, said he let his chief know that he wanted to to take the place of Sticklen. Sticklen had helped Branham fingerprint his son’s class in 2007 – a moment he said inspired him. Since then, Branham said he had constantly asked Sticklen for pointers and become more interested in SRO work. “It has just been something that has been on my heart this whole time,” he said of working as an SRO. Sticklen told him he

Start time extended for mega housing development By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
ALEXANDRIA – Alexandria has granted a two-year extension for the developers of a planned 916-unit housing development on 327acres known as Arcadia to begin construction. The city’s planning and zoning commission unanimously granted the site plan extension at the request of the property’s developers, the Drees Co. and Fischer Homes, at the May 3 meeting. The site plan expires two years from the date of the extension’s passage. It was January 2007, before the economic and housing downturn, when
Alexandria first approved the grading of the property behind a car dealership across from the Alexandria Village Green shopping center. The site plan for the property, featuring a mix of condominiums, townhomes, and single-family homes around a series of parks and lakes, was approved in January 2008. The developer’s plan was to build the 916-unit development, located on property between Tollgate Road and U.S. 27, over the course of 10 years after starting. Nothing about the original site plan, approved Jan. 4, 2008, has been changed with the decision to grant the extension, said John
Jewell, chairman of the city’s planning and zoning commission. It only extends the time to get started working, Jewell said. There’s nothing to prevent another extension from being granted in the future if work isn’t started, he said. “What tickles me is this is a way of showing that their commitment to the project is still there,” Jewell said. A member of the commission for 12 years, Jewell said in the past someone who brought a site plan to the city typically got right to work before the economic downturn. This is the first time in at
least 12 years that a site plan extension has been requested, Jewell said. “I’m glad they did come and ask for the extension, to me it was a no-brainer,” he said. Jewell said that when the original Arcadia site plan was first approved, the commission had sought a second entrance/exit road connection with Tollgate Road, but the developers didn’t own the necessary property at the time, and they’ve since added a 50acre tract that borders Tollgate Road. So, it’s possible the developer may seek in the future to amend the site plan to create a second entrance for vehicles at a
later date, he said. Michael Schoettelkotte, a representative of the Drees Co., who presented the request for the extension at the meeting, said the plan is for work on the project to start sometime within the two-year extension without committing to a date. “That would be our intent to do that, and of course we are projecting the economy will turn around,” Schoettelkotte said. Alexandria Mayor Bill Rachford said he’s happy the developers of Arcadia are still pursuing what is an important project for the city. In the summer of 2009, Ameritek Custom Homes
sold its interest in a property, where the company had proposed a 600-unit housing development, on the other side of Tollgate Road directly across from Arcadia. There’s been no extension request to renew the site plan. So, Arcadia is happy news, Rachford said. “That’s significant because the property that’s on the other side of the road, I understand they’ve sold their interest in that property,” Rachford said. “So, I don’t know (if) that development is going to take place.” For more about your community, visit www.nky.com/alexandria

Campbell County considers all-salt for roads By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
Before winter comes back around, Campbell County Fiscal Court will study its road treatment operations when it comes to the financial efficiency of using the current mixture of salt and coal fly ash as opposed to using salt only. The county uses fly ash obtained for free from Duke Energy’s Beckjord Power Plant in New Richmond, Ohio, in three-partsto-one-part salt mixture on roadways in the winter, said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine.
The E.P.A. rates road treatment as a beneficial use for the fly ash waste product. The mixture of fly ash and salt is used on all county roads except in subdivisions, where the fly ash ends up staying in the storm water catch basins because it doesn’t melt, Horine said. “The reality is the fly ash, it sort of stretches our salt usage,” he said. “The fly ash itself provides traction.” The county road superintendent Ken Schultz has recommended the use of the fly ash for years, and in general there have been virtually no complaints about the county’s efforts to clear snow and
ice. The county has used fly ash for at least 15 years, and maybe much longer, Horine said. The fly ash material has also commonly been used as fill material for many low-lying sites in Campbell County to level the land in areas, some of which used to be ravines, he said. “The fly ash is a free product, and I qualify the free by, we have to go get and haul it back to the road department,” Horine said. Commissioner Brian Painter, RAlexandria, said fly ash may be a free product, but he’s not certain it’s cheaper than using salt because of extra costs the product incurs.
“Therefore, is it really free?” Painter said. This year, there is a $50,000 spending item in the proposed budget to buy a cover to keep the fly ash from getting wet and sticking together before use, he said. There are also operational problems in using fly ash, and the county’s dump truck drivers have reported having to go back and load their trucks three or four times when using fly ash because it’s spread out at a greater rate than salt, Painter said. The drivers of some routes believe with an all-salt operation they might be able to finish their route with one truck-load, he said.
With the extra time for drivers and having to mix in the salt anyway, it might be cheaper to use the salt, Painter said. “I’m not advocating to go away from fly ash immediately, but I’m not convinced it’s the right thing to be putting on the roads,” he said. Salt is potentially cheap enough right now that the county might start considering using just salt, Painter said at the April 20 meeting. “I think we should maybe start running a true salt operation like Kenton and Boone,” he said.

SD1 receives 2-percent interest rate loans Sanitation District No. 1 of Northern Kentucky has received more than $37 million in 2-percent interest rate loans to fund fund seven different projects in Campbell, Kenton and Boone counties. SD1 announced in a May 18 news release that the Kentucky Infrastructure Authority (KIA) has granted more than $37 million from the Clean Water State
Revolving Loan Fund program to fund the “legallyrequired” capital improvement projects to reduce or eliminate sewer overflows. The projects receiving the funds include: • Ash Street pump station replacement and force main construction projects (two different projects) in Silver Grove and Camp Springs. • Church Street combined
sewer overflow reduction project in Taylor Mill. • Elimination of the Kentucky Aire pump station in Florence by installing a new gravity sewer to the Frogtown (Road) sewer. • Improvements to the Lakeview Pump Station in Fort Wright. • The Lakeside Park public and private source inflow and infiltration removal and
sewer rehabilitation project. • Vernon Lane (Fort Thomas) public and private source inflow and infiltration removal and sewer rehabilitation project. “KIA loans have saved SD1 more than $100 million in interest costs when compared to traditional 30-year revenue bonds,” said Bob Elliston, president of SD1’s board of directors, in the
news release. Since 2004 KIA loans have funded 20 projects through 16 different loans, according to the SD1 release. “Stringent environmental regulations are requiring SD1 to invest $400 million in infrastructure improvements in the next few years,” said Elliston in the release. “We work very hard to fund capital improvement projects

For Dayton High School senior Danielle Getter, writing is more than a hobby, it's a passion. Getter, who wrote her first story when she was 5, will be heading to the University of South Florida in the fall to double major in creative writing and library science. "When I wrote my first story and my mom told me how good it was, I knew then that I wanted to be a writer," Getter said. "I've been writing ever since." Getter, who has lived in Dayton since she was 5, has already had one short story published and has written several others. Her goal after college is to write fiction books and work in a library. "I just love books and being around them," Getter said. "All the librarians at the local libraries know me well." Getter said she chose the University of South Florida partly
because not many school offers the majors she wanted, and partly because her dad lives close to the school. Principal Rick Wolf, who taught Getter in seventh grade before becoming principal, said he was amazed the first time he read her writing. "Danielle has always been a tremendous writer," Wolf said. "She just has such a passion for writing." Wolf said Getter, who has a 4.0 grade point average, is one of very few students from Dayton he's seen go far away to college. "Most of our students who go to college go to more local places," Wolf said. "I'm very excited for Danielle and think she'll do well." For more about your community, visit www.nky.com/dayton

Construction begins on new addition By Amanda Joering Alley email@example.com
SOUTHGATE - After busting at the seams the past couple years, Southgate Elementary School has begun construction on a new addition to the school building. The addition, which is being built onto the back of the original 1902 school building, will include four classrooms, two restrooms and basement storage space.
Superintendent Jim Palm said the addition is necessary to house the school’s growing number of students. “Two years ago we had 130 students and now we have 230,” Palm said. “We had to add modular units last year to house two of the classes.” Principal Kim Simpson said the new addition shows that Southgate is growing and moving in the right direction.
“I think it’s fantastic for the future of Southgate School,” Simpson said. “We have just outgrown our present building and are going to continue growing.” Simpson said the new addition will help bring the school one step closer to her ultimate goal of being one of the top five schools in the state by giving them adequate teaching space. Palm said the construction, which began earlier this month, is
scheduled to be complete by the end of this year or beginning of next year. The total cost for the project, which is being paid for by bonds, is about $1 million. “It’s very exciting, but very stressful,” Palm said. “This construction impacts everything we do.” Palm said the faculty and staff’s summer work schedule will be affected at times when con-
struction crews have to turn off the utilities to the school, and everyone is working to ensure the safety of the students when they return to school in the fall amidst the construction. Palm said once this project is complete and more funds become available, he hopes to renovate the 1902 and 1930 sections of the building. For more about your community, visit www.nky.com/southgate
Rewards bring more Accelerated Readers By Amanda Joering Alley firstname.lastname@example.org
FORT THOMAS - Due to an increased effort to encourage and reward students for participating in the Accelerated Reader program at Woodfill Elementary, the school has seen a large increase in participation the past two years. Accelerated Reader is a program where students read books and take tests to earn points based on how much of the book they can recall. Twice a year students can spend their points on prizes like candy, toys and video games. Dan Gorman, a member of the school’s Site Based Decision Making Council, said a couple years ago the program wasn’t going very well and most students weren’t doing much reading, earning about 4,000 points all
together. “Last school year, we made a concerted effort to improve this,” Gorman said. “We tripled our budget for prizes through donations.” Gorman said the better prizes, along with a grand prize drawing of a laptop, donated by the school’s business partner KLH Engineers, encouraged the students to read more and added some friendly competition to the program. This school year, the students earned more than 21,000 points all together. “We have been putting a tremendous emphasis on reading and developing skills and comprehension,” said Principal Diana Stratton. “It’s great to see the students getting so involved.” At an assembly Friday, May

Work ethic diploma says grads have skills to succeed By Stephanie Salmons email@example.com
A number of high school seniors around the area have what they need to succeed â€“ work ethic â€“ and the diploma to prove it. According to information provided by Kelly Jones, workforce talent solutions coordinator with the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, the chamber launched a regional work ethic diploma program in 2001. The concept was proposed by employers that felt students were not completing high shcool with the â€œsoft skillsâ€? needed to be successful employees. The diploma was designed to supply local employers with skilled workers and produce an emerging workforce prepared to face the challenges
of a global market place. A number of standards were developed to measure work ethic in students including attendance, absenteeism, tardiness, community service, discipline, GPA, organization, punctuality, respectfulness and team work. Nearly 10,000 students have earned the award to date and 28 high schools have implemented the program. 2011 recipients of the work ethic diploma include:
Megan Arnzen, Kristopher Bock, Brittany Bohn, Devyn Buschard, Jessica Clark, Ryan Daudistel, Mechelle Duffy, Owen Durbin, Harley Fossett, Dakota Hammond, Paul Kosko, Joseph Lenz, Taylor McIntyre, Mindi Reynolds, Paige Searp, Paige Smith, April Thompson, David

deadline. They are currently being reviewed by a sevenmember screening committee made up of parents, district employees and school employees. The committee will recommend any number of the applicants to the board of education for interviews. Those recommendations will happen at a meeting May 26, with interviews conducted by the board soon after. The district has been in search of a superintendent since Anthony Strong resigned May 11 to take the same job with Pendleton County Schools. Associate Superintendent Shelli Wilson is serving as the interim superintendent through June 30. The districtâ€™s goal is to have someone hired by then. To aid in its search, the board developed an eightquestion online survey for staff and community members to give their input as to what qualities they would like to see in a new superintendent. Those results are being reviewed by the board. Juli Hale, spokeswoman for the district, said 269 surveys were submitted. For more about your community, visit www.nky.com/campbellcounty

“ This new valve can save lives
IN INDIVIDUALS WHO MAY NOT OTHERWISE BE GIVEN
THE OPPORTUNITY FOR SURGICAL VALVE REPLACEMENT.” DR. DEAN KEREIAKES, PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR FOR THE PARTNER II TRIAL OF TRANSCATHETER AORTIC VALVE REPLACEMENT AT THE CHRIST HOSPITAL HEART AND VASCULAR CENTER
Cardiologists with The Christ Hospital Are First in Greater Cincinnati Region to Perform Heart Valve Replacement without Open Heart Surgery Aortic stenosis (AS) results from the hardening or narrowing of the aortic valve; AS obstructs the flow of oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the rest of the body. It is one of the two most common heart valve problems in the United States and ranks among the top five Medicare cardiac diagnoses. Patients with severe AS may experience chest pain, fatigue, shortness of breath, lightheadedness or fainting. Although AS typically progresses slowly without symptoms, once symptoms occur the prognosis is guarded and survival is limited. Treatment of AS has traditionally involved open heart surgical valve replacement, which has considerable morbidity and mortality in elderly, frail individuals with complicating medical issues. Now, physicians at The Carl and Edyth Lindner Center for Research and Education at The Christ Hospital are involved in a clinical research study (The PARTNER II Trial) using the Edwards SAPIEN XT valve. This allows doctors to replace the aortic valve without open heart surgery by using a catheter instead. The Christ Hospital is the only center between Atlanta, Georgia and Cleveland, Ohio to offer this novel, less invasive valve trial. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) provides a treatment option for patients with symptomatic AS who are not candidates for traditional valve replacement surgery. “Unfortunately, elderly patients with multiple medical problems may not survive traditional valve surgery,” says Dean Kereiakes, M.D., principal investigator in Cincinnati for The PARTNER II Trial and medical director at The Lindner Center for Research and Education and The Christ Hospital Heart and Vascular Center. “Our goal in joining The PARTNER II Trial is to provide a new treatment option and hope for these individuals.”

ready for the postseason. In three days we played more matches than we played in half the season and the guys didn’t leave anything on the court.” The Highlands boys team won the 10th Region team title as well in a playoff over Montgomery County. They joined the girls team in sectional play May 21 in the new team tournament format. Both teams were eliminated that day. Highlands fell to Covington Catholic in boys, losing three matches in three sets. The girls team lost to Notre Dame. See more sports coverage at www.cincinnati.com/ blogs/presspreps.
Veteran Camels sign with colleges By James Weber firstname.lastname@example.org
ALEXANDRIA – The Campbell County High School baseball team is loaded for bear this month. Technically, the Camels (16-11) will be aiming for the Cougars of Calvary Christian, but the Camels are preparing for a strong postseason. “I’m pretty confident,” said senior Nate Losey. “Last year we lost to Brossart in the district and it would be nice to win it this year. We’re kind of slumping, but I think once we get to districts we’ll be playing better.” Losey and two other Camel baseball players committed to continue their diamond careers in college May 20. Losey will go to the College of Mount St. Joseph in Cincinnati. Coy Shepard and Michael Teegarden will play for the University of Cincinnati-Clermont. A fourth baseball player, Michael Kremer, will play

Losey, the leadoff hitter, plans to major in business. “He’s the catalyst for the offense,” Camels head coach Scott Schweitzer said. “He hasn’t hit for a lot of power, but he gets on base and plays incredible center field. He can flat out go get the ball. Great student, great kid, great family.” Teegarden is the ace starting pitcher of the staff. “He’s very talented, and
he had to realize how good he was,” Schweitzer said. “He’s put the work in away from pitching. His record is not the greatest this year but he’s played against the who’s-who.” Shepard will major in business. “His hard work and good attitude puts him over the edge and allows him to continue on in college.” Schweitzer said. “He’ll do anything you ask. He can flat-out hit. His parents
have been a huge help to our program and that’s how Coy is.” Kremer will join the highly successful Saints program in NCAA Division III football. TMC was 11-1 last year. Kremer, the Camels' quarterback, put up outstanding numbers the past two seasons, including 2,564 yards and 23 touchdowns last year. He is more proud of the six wins the Camels put up, including a first-round Class 6A playoff win over Clark County. “It’s something I’ve wanted to do my whole life,” Kremer said. “I knew after high school I wanted to keep playing. My junior year we were 4-6 and we came back and won our first playoff game in five or six years. That was a big deal. I broke a bunch of records, but I was only as good as the players I had around me. I made a lot of great friendships around here, people I’ll never forget.” The four seniors and the
rest of the Camels were set to play Calvary in the semifinals Monday, May 23. “We play seven or eight seniors on any given night,” Schweitzer said. “They play hard and they fight, and I like our chances at making a huge run in the regional.” One senior who won’t be on the field is Corey Cox, a starting outfielder who was in a wheelchair the day of his teammates’ signing ceremony. Cox partially tore his patella tendon recently after colliding with a soccer goal and faces several months of rehabilitation. “It’s tragic, really,” Schweitzer said. “He’s an incredible athlete and he had a lot of goals after high school. He’s an awesome kid from an awesome family, works hard, great attitude. It’s one of those things, I tell the guys you got to play every pitch like it’s your last pitch because you never know.” See more sports coverage at www.cincinnati.com/ blogs/presspreps.

Campbell schools dominate regionals By James Weber firstname.lastname@example.org
ALEXANDRIA – Brandon Napier said his Campbell County High School girls track and field team has been running under the radar this season. That’s fine with Napier, the Camels’ head coach, as his team enters the 2011 postseason looking to defend its 2010 Class 3A team state title. “This year it’s like we’re very quiet,” he said. “Everyone kind of knows we’re there, but they’re not sure what’s going to happen. The weather has been bad, we haven’t had a lot of good times and good performances.” Napier said the wet weather, nagging injuries and his training regimen have kept the Camels from being at their best in meets, but they have still had some key wins. The Camels won the conference big-school championship for the third straight year in late April. Last week, the school prom forced the Camels to skip

This University of Cincinnati senior from Alexandria, Troy Cooper, watches his discus fly at the Oliver Nikoloff Open track and field meet held at Gettler Stadium, April 1-2. The Bishop Brossart High School graduate earned fourth place with a throw of 165’ 6”. The Bearcat scholar, majoring in information technology, also scored second place in the shot put. Cooper won Kentucky state titles in both events as a high-schooler, also starring on state champion soccer and basketball teams.

the Area 5 elite meet, which invited the all-stars of Northern Kentucky. Instead the Camels dominated a smaller meet the day before at Scott High School, their last tune-up for regionals. “We had some unbelievable times and performances; they were earth-shattering,” Napier said. “Every performance we had was almost better than they had done all year.” The Camels won every running event in the eightteam field at Scott, most of them by large margins. The 4x200 team of Kennedy Berkley, Molly Kitchen, Anna Carrigan and Christina Heilman ran 1:45 to win by eight seconds. The 4x400 team of Carrigan, Heilman, Carolynn Dreyer and Faith Roaden ran 4:07 to win by 10 seconds. The 4x800 team of Dreyer, Roaden, Haylee Rose and Taylor Robinson ran 10:19 to win by eight seconds. The Camels are defending state champs in all three relays. The 4x100 also won with Heilman, Kitchen,
Sarah Ruckh and Lauren Macke. Heilman won the 300 hurdles in a personal best 45.5 seconds which Napier said is also the best in the state this year. Carrigan, the defending state champ in the 400, ran 57.8, her best time of the year, to win by five seconds. She also won the 200. Berkley, who has been battling a leg injury all spring, won the 100 hurdles and triple jump. Robinson won the 800 and 1,600 in season-best times. Rose won the 3,200 and Kitchen the 100. While the runners are known quantities to Camel fans, Napier has been thrilled with the emergence of junior thrower Kristen Rice. At Scott, she won the discus (105-9) and shot put (33-3) with personal-best marks. A converted sprinter who is only about 5-foot-3, she only started throwing last year and has improved her throws greatly from last season. Angela Lauer was second in the pole vault. Napier said the throws
and pole vault will be key to Campbell’s hopes in the postseason, as they were among the team’s weakest events last year. “We can’t just depend on sprinters,” Napier said. “Everyone has to step up. I told everybody they have to finish in the top eight at state. Kristen really took it to heart.” Napier said with his training program this year, he knew his team wouldn’t have its best times early in the season and he feels they’ll be ready to go. The 3A regional is Saturday, May 21 at Ryle. “I feel we’re starting to come together and our times are starting to drop. We’re starting to peak going into regionals,” he said. “They’ve seen what they can do so now they’re fired up. I think we’ll have a really strong showing at region. We’re hoping to three-peat. I think we’re one of the top two or three teams in the state and we’ll have a good chance to win it.” See more sports coverage at www.cincinnati.com/ blogs/presspreps.

Brossart has potential for postseason success By Adam Turer email@example.com
ALEXANDRIA – Bishop Brossart High School softball coach Mel Webster thinks this year’s team has the potential to be the best fast-pitch team he has coached at the school. That is an impressive statement, considering that the 2001 Mustangs squad won the 10th Region. Webster did emphasize that this year’s team has the potential. There is still plenty of work to be done on the diamond if they want to solidify their place in school history. The Mustangs are led by a battery that will play at the next level. Starting pitcher Alicia Miller recently signed to play college softball for Bellarmine University. Miller pitched every inning of every game for the Mustangs this season, notching 22 wins and post-
ing a 0.28 earned run average. For her career, she is 74-29. Her catcher, Lindsay Griffith, recently signed to play collegiately for the College of Mt. St. Joseph. Griffith leads the team with a .540 batting average this season. “We have two real good senior leaders,” Webster said. “We have a nice blend of veterans and young talent.” To go with those senior leaders, the Mustangs primarily start three freshmen and three sophomores. Their growth has been slowed a bit by all of the games missed due to weather this season. “The weather hurts you, especially when you’re a young team,” Webster said. “You hope by the end of the year that your freshmen are playing like sophomores and your sophomores are playing like juniors.”
The Mustangs earned the top seed in District 37 en route to finishing the regular season 22-5. Brossart took care of the competition as expected, with each of its losses coming against higher-ranked teams. “We lost to just quality teams,” Webster said. “We haven’t lost to anybody that we shouldn’t have.” The past two seasons the Mustangs have come close to winning the Tenth Region. This year, the Mustangs hope that they catch some breaks along the way. A little bit of luck paired with immense talent on the team should be enough to carry them far in the postseason. “We’ve had the misfortune the last couple of years of drawing the team that went on to win the Region, and we’ve lost in close games,” Webster said. The Mustangs squeezed in four games in two days in
the final weekend of the regular season. Brossart won three out of four and finished the year undefeated against District 37 foes. The Mustangs also defeated Bourbon County earlier that week. “Those are the kind of games that help you prepare for the district and regional tournaments,” Webster said. Webster admitted he is a little concerned about fatigue after playing four games in two days, but the Mustangs earned a bye in the first round of the district tournament. Their first postseason game was Tuesday, May 24, past deadline. At this point, the regular season is out the window. The Mustangs are focused on dominating in the postseason much like they did during the regular season. “The important thing is we need to win our Dis-

to see this group get to the state tournament, especially for our seniors.”

Should the U.S. continue to give tax breaks to oil companies? Why or why not? “Since a barrel of oil has fallen below $100 a barrel from a high of $114, have we seen a comparable drop in a gallon of gasoline? It’s still $3.99 where I live. “So many factors, we are told, affect the price of gas and oil. I think it’s high time the government intervene and get to the bottom of how they price gasoline.” R.H. “ABSOLUTELY NOT. I am a small business owner, I do not get tax breaks, and the oil companies report billions in profit, so what is good for the goose is good for the gander.” O.H.R. “This question is a real ‘red herring.’ The oil industry should be treated the same as every other industry, no better and no worse. It should get no advantage or disadvantage in comparison to any other industry. “If we unduly punish them, we will either send more of their production overseas, something I don’t think any of us want to see, or we will end up buying oil from countries like Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, etc. Neither of those are good outcomes. “And bear in mind, a legitimate tax deduction for a business expense (like oil depletion) is not a ‘tax break.’” T.H. “Unfortunately the media and the public uses rhetoric (subsidies) that is biased against the oil companies. Those companies are being treated the same as manufacturers’ of other goods. They are not subsidies. “Accounting principles approved and accepted by the IRS allow all companies to deduct certain items that make up “the cost of goods sold.” Farmers get them too. “If we disallow certain costs for some then we should do that for all companies including manufacturer’s and farmers. Singling out oil companies because they are profitable is irrational. “The government ‘bailed out’ GM and Chrysler. Fairness? Why do we pay some farmers not to grow crops? Because it buys the politicians votes. “Money (capital) goes where it is treated best. Without capital you do not have capitalism. Without capitalism you do not create jobs. “Most career politicians could not run a corporation. If they could they would not be in government. Easy jobs do not pay much. Capital (money) is fleeing the USA because it can get better returns (profits) in other countries. Politicians are just pandering for votes. They always do. “The public is economically illiterate. Now high schools are being required to teach economics. A little late in my opinion.” J.S.D.
“Politicians can spin anything! “John or Jane Doe is, apparently, not entitled to a good retirement pension or health care, but rich people and companies are entitled to all their benefits. “Oddly enough the Republican message that people should be responsible for themselves and their futures has great appeal to

However, until it applies equally to all, which means no benefits to the rich and a minimum wage which allows someone to buy housing, food, clothing, transport, health insurance and save for children's education and retirement, that is about three times the current level, then we have to look to the tax system to redistribute benefits to those on the lower end of the income spectrum. “To quote a mentor of mine, ‘Ideas are 10 a penny, the profit lies in the implementation.’ The rich have an inflated view of their worth and ignore the fact that without the sweat of the masses, they would have nothing. “This country needs a redistribution of wealth, the question is simply which is the best way to do that. Whatever happens, charity to corporations should be ended.” D.R. “The original purpose of the tax breaks was to help oil companies defray the costly risks for finding oil in and around America. “We find our current government forbidding these companies to tap the reserves they've discovered in Alaska and off our shores. When our government finally makes up its mind whether it wants domestic oil over foreign oil we can determine if the tax breaks need further review.” R.V. “Of course not! They are making billions. Why do they need government charity?” E.M.S. “I can think of no reason why the U.S. would give tax breaks to oil companies and then watch as the American public pays $4 plus for a gallon of gasoline.” E.E.C. “Should the US continue to give tax breaks to oil companies? ABSOLUTELY! They provide two extremely valuable things for our economy: jobs, and fuel. We need both, and the less we have to rely on foreign oil, the better off we will be.” Bill B.

Last week’s question
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Think twice before littering
On Saturday, May 21, 13 teenagers and five adults from Main Street Baptist Church participated in Trash For Cash with the Campbell County Solid Waste Department. We cleaned up beer bottles, soda cans, fast food containers and other items along the road. We were taken aback by the beauty of Southern Campbell County and that made it even more confusing to see why people would trash such a beautiful treasure we have in the landscape we get to call home. I am sure our teenagers will think twice about ever throwing something out their window in the future. Thank you to the Solid Waste department for a way to earn money for our summer trips and help our environment at the same time. Wayne Deffinger Minister of Students Alexandria

Trash for Cash
I recently participated in the trash for cash pickup that Campbell County Solid Waste holds in order for organizations to earn money. My senior class participated as a whole in order to raise money for our after graduation party known as “project grad”. We had approximately twenty-five volunteers. We divided and conquered by splitting up into two groups and each covering five miles of road around our school.
My view on litter is a kind of middle of the road approach. I do not think it is going to end the world but I think we should clean it up when we can. The biggest concern I had was the amount of beer bottles that were found empty lying on the side of the road. This means people were drinking while driving to the extent that we were able to fill about four garbage bags with nothing but beer bottles. Derek Mills Highland Heights
The Republican plan to address gas prices Record high gas prices are straining Kentuckians’ wallets, squeezing family budgets, and putting pressure on struggling businesses. Beyond the strain on the family budget, these high fuel costs pose a mortal threat to the economic rebound our country needs. High gas prices are a serious concern— and Kentuckians want solutions. Unfortunately, the answers coming from the Obama Administration and liberal Democrats in Washington are not serious. Their latest proposal is to raise taxes on American energy production. If you’re curious how that could possibly lower prices at the pump, you’ve got reason for suspicion. Even they admit it won’t. Here is what Democrat Finance Committee Chairman Senator Max Baucus had to say about their plan: “This is not going to change the price at the gasoline pump.” Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu added, “It will not reduce gasoline prices by one penny.” So their plan to raise taxes by $21 billion over 10 years on energy producers won’t do anything about the pain at the pump, but it will outsource energy jobs and make America more dependent on foreign oil. That’s not only my view; it’s also the view of the non-partisan Congressional Research Service, which concluded that the Democrats’ proposal would “likely increase foreign dependence.” So what are they doing about
gas prices again? President Obama and Washington Democrats’ record couldn’t be clearer. Over the last two years, the president’s administration has Sen. Mitch delayed, revoked, McConnell suspended, or canceled many Community energy developRecorder ment opportuniguest ties, hindering not columnist only greater energy production but also the much-needed jobs that would come with it. They’ve canceled dozens of leases, imposed a moratorium on energy exploration off the Gulf Coast, raised permit fees, or held up permits altogether in Alaska, the Rocky Mountain West, and offshore. As gas prices continue to climb, this Administration’s latest tax hike proposal is a frantic attempt to distract us from what can only be described as their war on energy production and the jobs that come with it. Fortunately, Republicans have an alternative proposal that actually seeks to boost domestic energy production. It’s a real solution to the nation’s problem of high gas prices and not enough jobs, not a tax increase that would just make things worse. The Republican plan would return American offshore energy
production to where it was before the Obama Administration clamped down on American energy. It would direct the federal government to continue with previously scheduled offshore lease sales in Virginia, Alaska and the Gulf. It would rip away the red tape that has hindered energy production by putting reasonable time limits on the review process for drilling permits. The Interior Department would have 30 days to review permit applications—to make a decision one way or the other—with two opportunities to extend that time period. The Republican plan would require the Interior Department to provide a reasonable rationale for rejecting a permit. It would provide for an expedited process to review questions about the process in court. This is a reasonable, commonsense plan that has been endorsed by job creators like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers. Addressing high gas prices, creating jobs, and lessening our dependence on foreign sources of oil are exactly what we should be working to accomplish in Washington. With $4-per-gallon gas, skyhigh unemployment, and instability in the Middle East, it’s far past time for the Democrats in Washington to explain why they’re not interested. Mitch McConnell is the Republican leader of the U.S. Senate.
“Entitlements come in all sizes. We homeowners have a few. Business has some. The farmers are oddly entitled. “As we tackle Congress specialinterest attachments and try to take back the ball from the Washington fat-cats, big-oil will have to cooperate, too. “If part of the solution is simple collection of taxes, would we all be willing to give up a couple of our own entitlements? If so, raising taxes on an already crushed America would not be required.” K.P. “I dont think big corporations should get any special consideration on tax breaks that the average americam is not getting. I wonder how many other corporations are getting tax breaks we dont know about?” D.D.

SMALL BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT
Mary and Sam Jim in the wine aisle of their store, Alexandria Carryout May 19.
Alexandria Carryout ‘setting the bar’ By Chris Mayhew
Sam and Mary Jim spruced up the Alexandria Carryout shop by remodeling it a year ago and brought in their belief that a little smile-laden conversation and listening to what customers like is good for business. The carryout store, which had been part gas station, part liquor store, part grocery for years, had fallen into disrepair until the couple bought the business in February 2010, said Sam Jim. “We had to basically close the place down for 10 weeks until we remodeled it,” he said. Gone are the gas pumps and the grocery. The remodeling allowed them to turn it into a true liquor business, and they’re in the process of obtaining a license from the state to have regular tasting events in-store, Jim said. The store will bring in a “mixologist” to run the tastings, he said. Sometimes people want to discuss options for drinks they are planning to mix and make at home rather than just come in and grab something quick – which customers often do, Jim said. “In this are, people know you and you know the people,” he said. “It’s really a relationship type business.” The selection of wines
and liquors has been modified by stocking customer requests, including some brands of tequila and scotches that people don’t always see on store shelves, he said. Jim said he has expanded the store including a 13door beer cooler where he is started to focus more on specialty and craft beers, a wine section that spans an an aisle that wraps almost half-way around the store’s walls, and a full selection of liquors including a “healthy selection” of bourbons. The store’s front counter area was built using columns, doors and other wood pieces Jim collects from old houses in Newport where he and his wife live. The counter features several framed photos of vintage scenes around Alexandria inset into the side facing customers. Jim said Jim, a former real estate agent, said he decided to open the store so he could work alongside his wife Mary. “We wanted to spend more time together,” he said.

Ala Carte Guru serves up more than just lunch By Amanda Joering Alley email@example.com
Fort Thomas resident Mark “Doc” Docter, know at Highlands High School as the Ala Carte Guru, is spreading his passion for healthy, tasty foods one dish at a time. Docter, who has worked as a chef in the school’s ala carte line since January 2010, has been working hand-in-hand with the cafeteria staff and district administration to completely change the food that the school serves, making it more nutritional, and introducing students to new foods and spices they haven’t tried before. “I’ve always been into the nutritional part of the food business,” Docter said. “I like to introduce the students to different tastes and let them decide what they like.” Superintendent John Williamson, a leader in the school’s efforts to offer healthier choices, said Docter has helped with menu planning and brought new, innovative ideas to the menu. Through a Facebook site he created called the Ala Carte Guru, Docter has been able to get students’ feedback and input about the menu, which Williamson said helps get them involved and excited about eating healthier. “The students seem to really like experimenting and trying new menu items,” Williamson said. “Mark has even named some of the new dishes after students.” Docter, who has been in the food business most of his life, owned several restaurants in Belize before moving to Fort Thomas a
Mark “Doc” Docter poses for a picture with his daughter Quinn Docter.
AMANDA JOERING ALLEY/STAFF
Mark “Doc” Docter recently started his own line of dressings and salsa. couple years ago when his daughter Quinn, who was for the most part home schooled while in Belize, expressed a desire to go to college. “I had always heard about Highlands, and I knew that it was a great school,” said Docter, who is originally from Bellevue. “I wanted Quinn to have to best opportunities, so I knew Fort Thomas was the
place we needed to be.” The single father and his daughter sold most of their belongings, packed up and moved to Fort Thomas in time for Quinn to start her sophomore year at Highlands, where she is now finishing up her senior year before heading off to college to study art. When he’s not serving the students at Highlands, Docter runs his own gluten-
free dressings business called Doc’s Dressings. Docter said he’d been making his own Miso Vinaigrette for years, but it wasn’t until his sister brought up the idea of selling it that he decided to start the business. Now, Docter has a variety of dressings, all named after important people in his life. Named after his daughter, the bottle of his Quintessence Marinade includes the story of Quinn’s birth in a cabin in the middle of snow storm in Colorado. Docter, who currently sells his products at the Fort Thomas Farmer’s Market, Picnic and Pantry in Northside, stores in Louisville and Lexington and soon in Findlay Market, said he’d love to see the business get bigger. “I want to take this as far as it will go,” Docter said.

The profanities of old have become so overused that all we have left in our barrel of crudities is the f-word. So we just use it over and over and over. Civility is dying. Who holds a door open for another? Who gets up and gives a seat to an older person? Who refrains from using harsh or hurtful language? If civility is dying that means civilization is as well. We are going downhill, regressing to the savage aggressiveness of the more primitive person. It’s no surprise that an
It’s tragically comical that we’ve run out of curse words. The profanities of old have become so overused that all we have left in our barrel of crudities is the f-word. increasing number of young men thrill at watching two men in a cage permitted to kick, punch and assault each other viciously. We euphemistically call it “extreme sport.” Sport? A civilized society’s first line of defense is not more policemen and more laws. What is more powerful is when desirable behaviors are entrenched in a civilization’s traditions, moral values and self-respect. When these elements are taught and practiced, they modify the brutish tendencies that lurk in the shadow-part of human nature. The collective power and lived examples of a civilized society says to others who contemplate following such tendencies, “If you’re going to live here, that’s not done among us.”
When you call a locksmith are they really local? the firm’s M a i n Street location. He didn’t go, but I did and f o u n d there is no Howard Ain 111 East Hey Howard! Main St. in Batavia, which is supposedly the home of Fast Batavia Locksmith. I called the company and learned it’s really located – not in Batavia, Ohio – but in New York. When I told Kenneda what I learned he said, “When I looked it up on the computer it said they’re out of Batavia, Ohio. It’s got an address. But, they’re really out of New York? That’s great. I did not know that.”
The Better Business Bureau confirms the mail it sent to that Main Street address was returned as undeliverable. The company tells me it can’t comment on this complaint because the Better Business Bureau is investigating. Two years ago several people were indicted in a nationwide scheme to overcharge for locksmith services, so this type of thing is not new. Therefore, you need to protect yourself by finding a truly local locksmith now. Then, if you have an emergency, you’ll know whom to call.

If you get locked out of your house or car and need to hire a locksmith right away, do you know whom to call? Many people will look for a company on the Internet and others will call information on the phone. But, if you’re not careful, the firm you think you’re hiring may not be local – and may not be on the up and up. Kallen Kenneda of Eastgate said his cousin was staying at his house in April and got locked out. Kenneda was out of town so couldn’t help him, but he did check the Internet for what he thought was a local locksmith. Kenneda called the firm and said, “I gave her my address, my phone number, all this stuff. I told her, ‘All the technician’s got to do is come out and pick the little lock – pick the bottom lock. It’ll take five minutes probably.’ She said. ‘OK, it’s going to be $29.95 plus labor, plus parts.’ ” The company, Fast Batavia Locksmith, sent someone right over, but failed to call Kenneda again with the estimate before doing any work. “They were supposed to call me for everything and, obviously, if I didn’t agree with the price I would have just told him to leave. I would have had somebody else come over. It would have been cheaper to get a hammer and knock the lock off and I would have replaced the lock for $30,” Kenneda said. Instead, the locksmith demanded the cousin pay him $160 dollars cash for the opening the door. “For 10 minutes worth of work it costs $160. It’s a joke,” said Kenneda. He said when he heard about the amount later he immediately called the company but got nowhere and thought about going over to

The respected historian Arnold Toynbee noted in his studies that of all the previous civilizations that have ever existed, most of them waned or fell not because of conquest from without, but from a disintegration from within. A healthy civilization is the opposite of a mob. Mob psychology is characterized by a lack of consciousness that leaves its members unaware of themselves and what they’re really doing. A true civilization is marked by an increase in consciousness that makes them aware of their actions and the results. Mobs are frightening, violent and uncivil. A genuine civilization is mostly peaceful, a much safer place, and profoundly civil. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Supporing Artists and the Arts Year-Round
It’s obvious that the noun civility, and the verb to civilize, come from the same root word. The dictionary says that to civilize means “to bring out of a savage, uneducated or rude state and elevate in social and private life; enlighten; refine.” A nation can be called a civilization when they have reached a high level of culture, science, industry and government, as well as when the citizens demonstrate courtesy, politeness and good breeding – which is the meaning of civility. So, after acknowledging the above, let’s observe our society and ask some questions. As a country, are we still manifesting the characteristics that indicate a nation becoming ever more civilized? Is the civility we show one another rising or declining? Are we becoming better educated, courteous and less brutish? To answer these questions, consider the behaviors we tolerate in the workplace, in public, on television, in entertainment, in our schools, on the Internet, while driving, etc. Everyone of us can compile our own list of observations and experiences: con-

Corn bread, iced tea a hit no matter the occasion A couple of days of sunny weather and now weâ€™re back to rain and cool temRita peratures. O n e Heikenfeld g o o d Rita s kitchen t h i n g , though. The gardens are full of happy worms, and that makes for healthy veggies and herbs along with easy pickings for the birds. And Iâ€™m looking forward to Memorial Day, which is official start of the outdoor party season. And I know lots of you are celebrating graduations so Iâ€™m sharing some favorite recipes for those occasions.
Corn bread salad for Memorial Day
Every year I get requests for this recipe always around Memorial Day. I change it up ever year, and this year Iâ€™m adding more bacon and a bit more oregano and cheese. I know, itâ€™s not low-fat or low anything, but a real treat to have occasionally. Donâ€™t be put off by the long
list of ingredients. Itâ€™s easy to make. Feel free to substitute lower fat ingredients if you want. My editor Lisa suggested plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Make sure itâ€™s Greek and not the sweetened type. 1 pkg. (81â „2 oz.) corn bread/muffin mix 1 can (4 oz.) chopped green chilies, undrained or 1-2 jalapeĂąos, chopped 1 teaspoon cumin 3 â „4 teaspoon oregano 1 cup each mayonnaise and sour cream 1 envelope ranch salad dressing mix 2 cans (15 oz. each) Great Northern beans, drained 2 cans (15 oz. each) whole kernel corn, drained or equivalent frozen corn, thawed 4 good sized tomatoes, chopped 1 bell pepper, chopped 1 bunch green onions, chopped 1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled 4 cups shredded cheddar Prepare corn bread according to package directions but stir in chilies, cumin, oregano. Pour into sprayed 8-inch pan.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool. Combine mayonnaise, sour cream and dressing mix; set aside. Crumble half the cornbread into a 13-by-9 pan. Layer with half of the rest of the ingredients and repeat layers, ending with cheese. Cover and refrigerate for two hours or more. Serves 10 to 12.

Corn bread salad is a perfect dish for summer grillouts and potlucks. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with hazelnuts. Toast the bread on a baking sheet five to 10 minutes to lightly crisp. Surround the spread with bread, pita crisps and celery.
So good iced tea punch
I love this punch! Youâ€™ll be surprised at the flavor â€“ very mild but with a zing. And such a pretty amber color. Perfect for graduations and large gatherings. Serves 16 to 20.
2 cups lemon-flavored iced tea mix (I used Lipton) 2 two-liter bottles of ginger ale Orange and lemons,
thinly sliced (optional but nice) Ice
Tips from Ritaâ€™s kitchen
What you need to know when baking with sugar substitutes: Remember that most sugar substitutes come with specific substitution formulas. Always check the package. Keep in mind that baked goods will not be the same when baked with sugar substitutes, mainly because non-sugars do not have the ability to melt and caramelize. When attempting to substitute, be sure to run a test batch.
Note that some sweeteners cook much faster than sugar, so be sure to adjust your baking times. Always add extra flavoring everywhere you can; extra vanilla, citrus juice or zest, spices, extracts. Be creative and keep in mind that you need to override the inherent â€œcoolâ€? flavor sensation of the sweetener you are using. To boost moistness in baked goods, try adding a bit of molasses or honey. To achieve a more golden brown color, try spraying the top of your batter or dough with cooking spray before placing in the oven. When making cookies, remember to flatten them a bit â€“ since the substitute sugars are slower to melt, cookies made with it tend to be slower to spread. For a natural, one-to-one baking blend check out www.NuNaturals.com. They have lots of Stevia (a natural, herbal sugar substitute) products and thereâ€™s no bitter taste.

N. Ky. schools recognized for excellence in school health Many schools in Northern Kentucky are actively shaping the health and wellness of their students and staff. The Northern Kentucky Health Department supports these efforts through its school health programming. As a part of this initiative, the Award of Excellence in School Health was developed to recognize and celebrate schools in Northern Kentucky that have policies, programs, and the infrastructure to support and promote school health. This year, 14 Northern Kentucky schools will be recognized with either a gold, silver or bronze level Award of Excellence in School Health. “The awards program is

one way the Health Department can help motivate and empower schools to create a healthy environment for students, staff and faculty,” said Lynne Saddler, MD, MPH. “It’s designed to promote a progressive approach, meaning that a school receiving a bronze level award in the past must attain silver level status to be awarded this time.” To be eligible for the awards, schools completed a comprehensive application form that assessed the areas of physical activity and nutrition, staff wellness, and school environments that enhance emotional and mental health and student safety. The application also assessed how well schools cultivate the 40 Developmental Assets, which are qualities essential to raising successful young people. Schools could win awards at one of three levels: bronze, silver or gold, based on the number of
points they earned towards the award criteria. “School health in Northern Kentucky is improving, as demonstrated by these awards,” said Saddler. “When the awards were last given in 2009, four schools met the criteria for bronze level awards and six for silver level. This year, three schools met the criteria for gold level, nine for silver and two for bronze.” Fourteen schools received awards for addressing many areas of school health. Of these, four showed improvement from the award level received in 2008-2009, the last time the awards were presented — Crossroads Elementary in Cold Spring, Dixie Heights High School in Edgewood, Sherman Elementary in Dry Ridge, and Walton-Verona High School in Walton. Some innovative activities were noted by the reviewers of the award applications, such as: Campbell County schools
being recognized by the health department are:
Cline Elementary in Cold Spring: Students engage in 30 or more minutes of daily physical activity via participation in Brain Gym, Take 10 and physical education classes.
Crossroads Elementary in Cold Spring.: Encourage student-lead service learning projects to increase work ethic and improve students skills in five of the 40 Developmental Assets: service to others, integrity, honesty, responsibility, and interpersonal competence. The service learning efforts stretch globally, with outreach efforts in Haiti and with soldiers stationed in Afghanistan.

YMCAs name Volunteers of the Year Fort Thomas residents Jerry Ayers and Denise Fenik were recently recognized at for their volunteer efforts at two local YMCA branches. Ayers was named the Williams YMCA 2010 Volunteer of the Year, and Fenik was named the Campbell County YMCA as 2010 Volunteer of the Year. Although Ayers has been a Williams Branch Board member for several years, he has dedicated more than 40 years of his life as a YMCA volunteer. Raising more than $30,000 in two years through the Williams YMCA Golf Outing, as well as consistently sharing the Y’s story, identifying opportunities to advance the Y’s priorities, and rallying adults to provide their support to the Y have enabled the YMCA to build and maintain longlasting relationships in our community. Over the past few years, Fenik has been volunteering her time as a hip hop dance instructor at the Campbell County YMCA, providing members with high tempo cardio exercises that incorporate dance moves. Her classes are packed from wall-to-wall on Tuesday and Thursday nights and because of the growing success, she even began teaching a Youth Hip Hop Class. Her commitment to the Y, her enthusiasm for dance, and her belief that healthy habits can be achieved in fun and unique ways has helped many youth and adults achieve more active lifestyles- all while learning moves they can show their families and friends.
McGraw honored as Golden Graduate Fourteen members of the graduating class of 1961 will return to Xavier University to be honored once again at commencement ceremonies held May 14. They will celebrate the 50th anniversary of their commencement and be an honored part of the 2011 ceremony for this year’s undergraduates. When these alumni attended Xavier, the student body and the campus were much smaller and virtually all male. Jesuit professors dominated and most students were “day-hops” – commuter students. While the campus is now coed and much larger in acreage, these alumni will find that some things never change. The closeknit, family atmosphere and caring faculty and staff are still very much a part of what is known as Xavier University. One of the Golden Graduates being honored is John F. McGraw of Fort Thomas. McGraw earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in 1961.

Court manager Connie Neal said. “We appreciate their efforts and are sure that their communities do too. “In addition to being good for the community, giving back is an important part of a Drug Court participant’s recovery. Helping others can make you feel useful and remind you that you are part of something bigger than yourself. Many individuals who are addicted to drugs either never had that great feeling or they lost it at some point.” The national theme for the month is Drug Courts: A Proven Budget Solution. While National Drug Court Month is observed annually in May, some programs recognize it with projects at other times of the year and/or have ongoing projects.

Suits that rock returns
Third-graders from St. Joseph School, Cold Spring, went on a field trip to the Cincinnati Nature Center. Of all the different habitats they observed, the third graders enjoyed the pond the most. The students used nets to capture organisms from the pond to study in their catch basins. Shown: Lauren Heck yells, “Catch that frog!”
On Saturday, June 18, and Saturday, June 25, more than 40 prominent business and community leaders will leave behind their suits and computers, grab their instruments and microphones, and take to The Carnegie’s Otto M. Budig stage for the fouth annual Suits That Rock benefit concert. Themed “United Suits of America,” this year’s performances will pay tribute to American artists and their music, covering popular songs from 1955 to present day. The set list will include artists such as Earth, Wind and Fire, Madonna, Johnny Cash, Pink, Trace Adkins and many more. Started in 2008, Suits That Rock has become The Carnegie’s annual sell-out fundraising event. Popularity has grown such that in 2010 an encore performance date was added. Proceeds from both evenings benefit The Carnegie’s education programs, which provide children with creative experiences and exposure to the arts.
“Suits That Rock plays a huge role in supporting our education outreach initiatives,” said Katie Brass, Executive Director for The Carnegie. “The requests for our arts programs continue to grow and this event helps us to meet the demands for our programs, ensuring more students have access to the arts.” Tickets are just $50 for Mezzanine, $75 for Orchestra, per person (reserved seat), and include a commemorative Suits That Rock mug, dinner by-the-bite, valet parking and a postshow unplugged performance in the Ohio National Financial Services Gallery. A cash bar is provided by The Avenue Lounge. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with “Suits” taking the stage at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available by calling The Carnegie Box Office at 957-1940 (Tuesday through Friday, noon to 5 p.m.) or online at www.thecarnegie.com.

NKU filmmakers win at movie festival A team of electronic media and broadcasting students from Northern Kentucky University brought home top honors last week from the region’s sixth annual College Movie Festival for their seven-minute film “Dependence.” Twenty-one different teams competed in the competition, which is sponsored by NKU, the University of Cincinnati, UC Raymond Walters College, Xavier University, Western Kentucky University, Brown Mackie College, the Ohio Center for Broadcasting, the Art Institutes and Cincinnati State Technical and Community College. Films can be up to seven minutes and Audience Choice and Runner-Up awards are presented for two viewing blocks. Overall awards are given for Best Use of Required Elements, Best Pre-Production and Judge’s Choice. “Winning the CMF was a dream come true and icing on the cake to end out my career at NKU,” said Tim McDaniel, a senior electronic media and broadcasting major and theatre minor. McDaniel co-wrote and produced “Dependence,” which won the Judge’s Choice Award and the Audience Choice Award (Group B) at the festival. “I have been very fortunate to take part in many different productions while at NKU, but this festival put all my skills to the test. This is truly a team award though and without my team of extremely talented friends, the film wouldn't look, sound and feel as good as it does.” Four different teams from NKU entered films, and the winning team, called PailMail Productions, consisted of McDaniel, Kyle Breitenstein, Brandon Webb, Brandon Crice, and Tyler and Nick Moser. They were assisted with camera work by NKU alumni Chas! Pangerburn and Alex Derickson.

N. Ky. hotel inspection reports now available online Scores from annual inspections of more than 70 Northern Kentucky hotels and motels can now be found online. Information on the inspection process, along with the scores, can be viewed on the Northern Kentucky Health Department’s website, www.nkyhealth.org. “Much like restaurants, many people are interested in how hotels have fared on their routine inspections,” said Dr. Lynne Saddler, district director of health. “Providing an opportunity for people to easily access this information is an important public service that will also encourage these establishments to be diligent
with health and safety regulations to avoid an unflattering score.” Inspections are designed to ensure the health and safety of patrons. Examples of things inspectors look for include checking to see that the establishment is in good repair, making sure employees have good hygienic practices, ensuring bed bugs, rodents and other insects are under control, and making sure there’s hot and cold running water under pressure from an approved source in all bathrooms. Scores are calculated on a maximum point value of 100. For each violation, points are subtracted. Critical violations, such as blocked
the inspectors look for, what kinds of issues are violations, etc. We feel that this helps put the numerical scores into context and gives the public a more accurate picture of the conditions during the inspection.” Follow-up inspections are required if a hotel has any critical violations or if it has a total score below 85 without critical violations. Follow-up inspections are scheduled based on a reasonable amount of time to correct the violations. Hotels receiving an inspection score below 85, or with

critical violations, may require administrative actions, including conferences heard by officials from the Kentucky Department for Public Health. Enforcement action against the establishment can range from a requirement to correct a violation in a certain time frame while still operating, up to a notice to cease operation until the violations are brought into compliance. For more information about the inspection process, or to file a complaint about conditions at a hotel or motel, call the health department’s environmental health and safety office at 859341-4151.

them a reality. All I need to do to take my innovation to the next step is to have a passion for what I am doing, learn everything I can about my business and then work really hard at it. These are life lessons that
Health officials stress prevention as cases of shigella rise Almost 40 cases of Shigella have been reported in Northern Kentucky since April 1. With most of these cases being associated with child care centers, the Northern Kentucky Health Department is reminding residents to use proper hand washing techniques and to keep children home if they are ill. Shigella is a bacteria that infects the bowels. It causes an illness called shigellosis, with symptoms including diarrhea, fever, stomach cramps, nausea or vomiting. Shigella primarily infects young children, since it is spread through contact with the stool of an infected person. “The Health Department has been seeing a significant number of cases of Shigella in recent weeks,” said Dr. Lynne Saddler, District Director of Health. “We are working with local doctors’ offices and child care centers to educate them about preventing the spread of shigella in the community. And, with the outdoor pools opening soon, we want to remind individuals what they can do to stop the spread of this illness. By taking steps to prevent Shigella now, we can avoid additional cases in Northern Kentucky.” To keep from getting shigella, you should: • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and run-
ning water after using the restroom, after changing diapers, and before preparing or eating food. This is the best way to prevent the spread of infectious diseases found in the intestinal tract, such as Shigella. • Do not use wading pools or water tables for groups of children, because shigella is transferred easily in standing water. • Dispose of soiled diapers properly. • If you have diarrhea, stay home from work, school or child care until you are better. Also, do not prepare food for others while you have diarrhea. You may want to contact your doctor for testing. Shigella is often transmitted in child-care facilities, since many children are in diapers. Of the 36 cases reported to the Health Department through May 3, 78 percent have been connected to people attending or working in child care centers. The Health Department has been working with local centers to remind them of proper hand washing techniques and to make sure the children and staff who have Shigella remain at home until they have completed treatment and have a negative stool culture. “Shigella can easily be transmitted through swimming pools – both public and private – if someone is
experiencing diarrhea and swims in a pool,” said Steve Divine, Director of Environmental Health and Safety. “Pool operators should remind patrons not to swim if they have diarrhea. We also encourage public pools to exclude children not toilet-trained from using their facilities. Even the use of plastic diaper pants or diapers designed for use in the water cannot guarantee that fecal matter does not get into the pool water.” Each year, about 18,000 cases of shigella are reported in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Because many milder cases of shigella are not diagnosed or reported, the CDC estimates that the actual number of cases may be 20 times greater. In Northern Kentucky (Boone, Campbell, Grant and Kenton counties), an average of 25 cases of Shigella are reported each year. Anyone with symptoms of shigella should contact his or her health care provider. The illness can be treated with antibiotics. In severe cases, hospitalization may be required to avoid dehydration. For details on shigella, please read the attached fact sheet, or visit the Health Department’s website at www.nkyhealth.org.

efforts of faculty advisors, Conroy nominated Varrone for the Faculty Advisor Award. She wrote in her nomination, “Strength. Enthusiasm. Involved. I cannot think of three better words to describe Jeff Varrone. Through the commitment and determination he shows and just by shaking his hand you can catch some of his spirit and ‘can-do’ attitude. He lifted my spirits on a daily basis. He gave me a crash course on how to create a business plan in less than three weeks. It was a rigorous learning experience but he never gave up on my dream and never asked for anything in return.” Varrone, along with the institute’s Director, Dr. John Clarkin, also helped coach The Health and Beauty Club team with their business plan and presentation. Varrone was rewarded for his outstanding efforts by being named one of the Top Faculty Advisors in the state.
