Green Derby raises funds for Madden family By Amanda Joering Alley


Russell Madden’s sons Jared and Parker and wife Michelle pose for a picture with Green Derby General Manager Tom Cardosi. The restaurant is donating $2 for every dinner sold through July to the Madden family.

The recent death of Bellevue soldier Russell Madden has affected many people in the area, including the employees at the Green Derby restaurant in Newport. With some of his employees having close connections to the Madden family, Green Derby owner David Hosea has decided to donate $2 for every dinner sold through July 31 to the Madden family, including Russell’s wife Michelle and sons Jared, 11, and Parker, 4. “He wanted to do something to

help the family,” said General Manager Tom Cardosi. “The money will go directly to Michelle to help her through this hard time.” Family friend Tina Bacon said Michelle went to school and only worked part-time, making Russell the main provider for the family. While Michelle will get benefits from the Army, those things take some time to go into effect, Bacon said. “This money will just help with the family’s daily living expenses until then,” Bacon said. Cardosi said the restaurant usually sells between 50 to 75 dinners a night, so he hopes to

Commercial property values contested By Chris Mayhew

Campbell County is experiencing a spike in the number of companies requesting property tax assessment values be lowered, and local government tax revenues including fire districts and schools will feel the pinch. The increase in requests for a downgrade in value is tied to the economy, said Property Valuation Administrator Daniel K. Braun. “Corporations are trying to save money any way they can,” Braun said. The three-member local appeals board, which meets annually to review cases in June, are all experts in residential properties and typically hear those types of cases, he said. “This year we really did have more commercial properties coming in, and I think a big part of that was how the economy is right now,” Braun said. Some of the appeals were either ruled upon by the local board and haven’t been appealed yet or were already settled, Braun said. So far, three corporate property


The Sara Lee plant off U.S. 27 south of Alexandria is one at least three companies appealing the value of their property and requesting a downgrade in value through the Kentucky Board of Tax Appeals in 2010. owners from Campbell County have appealed their cases to the Kentucky Board of Tax Appeals. “They'll set a hearing date eventually, it sometimes takes upwards of a year to get these things done,” Braun said. In the meantime, the lower value being sought by the property owner is the amount that will be taxed until the matter is settled, he said. If the property owner loses their appeal they are required to remit a check for the difference in value, Braun said. For 2010, the Sara Lee Corp. initially requested an assessed


price of $8 million for its meat production facility off U.S. 27 south of Alexandria instead of the PVA’s $24 million assessment. The plant had been tax exempt through 2003 for about the first 20 years in existence because of government incentives. Sara Lee’s assessment in 2009 was $26.4 million and was $25.7 million for three straight years through 2008. The assessment was $19.1 million for both 2004 and 2005. Mike Cummins, spokesman

The resignation of one council member has led to the appointment of Dave Guidugli back onto council in Cold Spring. Janis Reiman, who was elected in 2008, resigned June 25 after marrying and moving out of state, said Mick Vank, city administrative officer. Guidugli has previously served terms on council from 1995 to 2000 and from 2003 to 2008. He was sworn in as a member of council at the July 12 council meeting. Guidugli had recently been a member of the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission until returning to council, Vank said. Guidugli will serve on the safety committee and serve out Reiman’s council term until it expires in November. Guidugli did not return calls. “I’m real excited to be back working with Dave again,” said Mayor Mark Stoeber. “He’s a good solid voice and understands the city, and I’m real excited about it.” Stoeber said it’s his understanding that Guidugli will run in the fall. The next meeting of council will be at the city building, 5694 East Alexandria Pike, at 7:30 p.m. Monday, July 19.

Roads on agenda

Council will decide which roads it can afford to pay to fix at the July 19 meeting, Vank said. “We will be opening bids for, I think, 12 roads to either be totally reconstructed or partially reconstructed,” he said. Vank said the expectation is that the bids for the road work will come in under the projected cost. “The issue is can we really get the ones that are in the worse shape done this season or are we really have to wait until spring,” he said.

Board deadlocked on trainer contracts By Chris Mayhew

A debate over two athletic trainer contracts for Campbell County High School has the district’s Board of Education in month two of a debate that will now require a special meeting. For the second monthly meeting in a row, school board members at the July 12 meeting debated and failed to agree on which contract to approve. For the board members the issue is about either staying loyal to a company with an athletic trainer the school’s staff and players have had a good relationship with, or saving money in tough economic times by switching to a different company. The two companies offering competitive bids are NovaCare Rehabilitation, the company the school district currently contracts with, and St. Elizabeth Healthcare affiliated Commonwealth Orthopaedic Centers. After

the school board chose neither of the companies in June, both companies have submitted new contracts, each with offers of increased financial incentives for the access the contracts bring to players who need additional physical therapy or medical care. The primary differences between the two current contracts offered is that Commonwealth is offering a $7,500 payment to the district ($2,500 more than in June), and also stocking the training room for free and free scan testing for players. NovaCare is offering a $5,000 payment to the district. Training room supplies will be subtracted from the $5,000 although the company would seek grant money to pay for the costs of the training supplies instead lowering the $5,000 payment. With board member Gary Combs absent from the July 12 meeting, Superintendent Anthony Strong recommended tabling the issue and scheduling a special

Differences in services

Both companies sent representatives to the July 12 Campbell County School District Board of Education meeting to state their cases on why each offered better athletic services. Dr. Forest T. Heis from St. Elizabeth/Commonwealth said he is has already been at Campbell County High School games for eight years as the official orthopedic surgeon. “NovaCare has been a good program, but can it be better?” Heis said. Heis said NovaCare’s trainer lives in Campbell County and has done a great job. Heis said Commonwealth does orthopedic surgeries in Campbell County. NovaCare has sometimes had a doctor without experience in sports medicine, and has had both a third-year resident and fellows one year out of their residency working some of the Campbell County games, Heis said. He pledged that Commonwealth has a staff of well-trained doctors trained in sports medicine that will be working games. Connie Noll, an administrator for NovaCare, said there were sometimes fellows and other types of doctors staffing the Campbell County games because of staffing needs. Noll said when an injury occurs it is in the athletic trainers environment, and that like Commonwealth they have a 24-hour oncall doctor. Noll said NovaCare makes sure when there is an injury to ask a parent if they have a current relationship with a doctor and if not to offer them a list of doctors in their network as a starting point and option. “What we’re proposing is athletic training services, not go here and go do that,” Noll said. meeting as soon as possible. Strong had recommended approval of the St. Elizabeth/Commonwealth contract at both meetings. “In my opinion and the opinion of staff, the St. Elizabeth proposal is the strongest proposal,” Strong said. Board member Mike Combs made a motion seconded by board member Janis Winbigler to accept the St. Elizabeth contract on the condition that the money from the contract go directly to the high school’s athletic fund. Board member Rich Mason did not voice support for the St. Elizabeth contract and the motion to approve it died. Board member Susan Fangman abstained from voting because of an affiliation she has with St. Elizabeth, Strong said. Combs said the school needs to shop all of its contracts from insurance to athletic training and seize on

fiscal opportunities to save tax money. “There is a call in this community that we run this as a business,” Combs said. Combs said if the school can find nine or 10 similar savings opportunities, like the athletic trainer contract, there will be enough money to do something currently not in the facilities budget. The types of projects Combs said he was thinking of ranged from putting new turf and lights at the middle school football field where the high school currently plays or building a whole new field at the high school. Mason said he doesn’t see a reason to switch from NovaCare, and the cost savings is very minimal. Mason said it’s his understanding the school is very satisfied with the service from NovaCare, and cited a good relationship with NovaCare’s athletic trainer. “We’ve gotten good service from NovaCare,” Mason said.

PVA From A1 with Sara Lee, said the corporation has amended its request from $8 million to $18.7 million in their final appeal. Cummins declined to make any further comments, citing being in the middle of the appeals process. Braun said he couldn’t confirm that Sara Lee had increased the number on its state appeal. About $18 million was a number the local board of appeals had rejected at a June hearing, Braun said. Sara Lee’s request is the biggest single decrease requested by a company in Campbell County this year. “Of all the people it affects, the Southern Campbell Fire District is affected more than anybody,” he said. Others affected by any decrease in Sara Lee’s assessment are the county government and county school district, both of which have a bigger taxing districts to draw from than the fire district, Braun said. Even at an assessment of $18.7 million, the fire district stands to lose about $9,500 from its biggest property taxpayer, said Fire Chief Jim Bell, who is a volunteer. At an assessment of $8 million for Sara Lee, the district will lose $28,000 in revenue out of a district budget of about $800,000, Bell said. That’s as much as the fire district’s annual utility bill or insurance, or almost as much as a full-time employee. The district is also trying to save money to buy a $220,000 ambulance, he said. “It’s still bad, if it’s $10,000 we’ll have to find somewhere, but it’s not a

back-breaker,” Bell said. Last year the fire district’s deductions in property values equaled the amount of gains from growth that occurred in the district, he said. “It’s a pretty tough trend like when you’re trying to expand services,” Bell said. Other decreases requested by Campbell County companies included an appeal to the state to value the Alexandria Village Green Shopping Center at about $7.4 million instead of the $10 million assessed by the PVA, Braun said. According to the website of Phillips Edison & Co., the owner of the Village Green, there are eight existing spaces vacant for a total of 91,562 square feet of the shopping center’s total 207,606 square feet. The PVA has worked with several commercial properties without a problem and is close to settling a case on the Village Green’s value between $8 million and $8.5 million based on their income statements, Braun said. The Castellini Co. already settled its case with the PVA at $8 million instead of the original $9.2 million the company’s property in Wilder was assessed at, Braun said. Town and Country Sports and Health Club in Wilder has also appealed to the state for a change in their assessed value from the PVA assessment of $7.09 million to $5.9 million. Town and Country had been assessed at $5.8 million in both 2008 and 2009. “We’re not asking to lower our taxes,” said Kevin Molony, president of Town & Country. “We are just questioning a 20 percent assessment in the face of down economy.”

Judges: Northern Kentucky ready for growth By Paul McKibben

Northern Kentucky is ready to recover from the Great Recession, officials told a Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce crowd July 13. Campbell County Judge-executive Steve Pendery said Northern Kentucky is poised for growth across the area. “We’ve done the kinds of things we need to put ourselves in a position to foster it when the economy turns around and certainly we’re poised for growth in

Campbell County,” he said during the chamber’s State of Northern Kentucky Address program at Receptions in Erlanger. Pendery mentioned construction of a new justice center that is under way. Construction has also started on an improved U.S. 27 south of Alexandria. Last November, a new county administration building opened. Pendery said Northern Kentucky University continues to grow, noting construction is under way on Griffin Hall that is the future home of NKU’s College of

Informatics. Last December, a Kroger Marketplace store opened at the Newport Pavilion development. He said much more retail is scheduled to go out there and Target is expected to break ground this month. Pendery said last spring the General Assembly provided funding for construction of a Ky. 9 extension along the west side of Newport. He said the Ovation and Manhattan Harbour riverfront developments once completed will each have an assessed value of nearly

$1 billion. Boone County Judge-executive Gary Moore said growth is still happening in the county but not as fast as it was. He said job creation is probably the most important issue the county is working on these days. “And we know government doesn’t create jobs but what we can do at the government level is keep government out of the way,” he said. “We can keep taxes low. Yes, we need to focus on infrastructure (such as) our roads, water and sewer and we’re doing

that.” Moore said Boone County and the “region are poised for greater things.” “We are ready for economic recovery or we’re ready for what happens if economic recovery does not happen,” he said. Kenton County Judge-executive Ralph Drees mentioned the county’s new jail in Covington that will be completed in September. Grant County Judge-executive Darrell Link said Interstate 75 in Grant County has been widened to three lanes.

Summer theater draws from Campbell By Chris Mayhew


Bob Myers of California, who retired from Campbell County High School as a music teacher and choir director in 2009, performs as the character Ben Rumson in a musical play version of “Paint Your Wagon” at the Kincaid Regional Theatre in Falmouth Wednesday, July 14. Myers helped found the theater 28 years ago and after his retirement from teaching has again taken an active roll in both behindthe-scenes and on-stage work.

As the summer heats up, so does a tradition that draws Campbell County residents south to Falmouth to join a regional cast for weeks on end and produce a play. The Kincaid Regional Theatre draws its audience, actors and stage workers from a multi-county region surrounding Pendleton County. Cold Spring resident Chris A. Fettig is directing this year’s play “Paint Your Wagon.” The stage manager is Tyler Gabbard of Alexandria, back home for a summer after first year of studying stage management at NYU. Bob Myers of California is playing the lead character of Ben Rumson, a miner whose daughter is the only woman in a town full of prospectors. Myers, 56, recently retired as a music teacher


dents at area colleges including the University of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky University. For Gabbard, 19, it’s his fourth year helping produce a show at the Kincaid. Gabbard said he’s been glad to bring the stage management and set design he’s learned at NYU back to the Kincaid after working on previous shows as a high school student. Gabbard said there’s a lot of theatrical talent in Campbell County and also in the surrounding counties. Audience members also make the trek to the Kincaid from all around because it’s truly a regional show where people make a habit of coming back annually, he said. “I love it. I’ve gotten to know a lot of audience members there, and it’s just a community as opposed to the professional world where for everyone it’s about a job and showing up,” Gabbard said.

The Kincaid Regional Theatre draws its audience, actors and stage workers from a multi-county region surrounding Pendleton County.

and the choir director at Campbell County High School, and was one of the founders of Kincaid Regional Theatre 28 years ago. Myers directed the theater’s first play “The Sound of Music” in an un-air-conditioned hall. Myers said he returned to Kincaid because he has more time, and simply wanted to sing the song “They Call the Wind Maria,” – a bit part in the original play. Kincaid’s directors had rewritten the play and paired “Maria” with the part of the lead actor, Myers said. So, Myers signed up and has ended up also taken over the job as music direc-

tor at the same time. “The thrill of it all is I get to sing ‘Maria,’” he said. Myers said he started singing “Maria” at age 9. “It’s one of the greatest songs of all musical comedy history,” he said. Myers said he couldn’t wait to get the script in his hands three months ago to start memorizing his lines and it’s been a full-time job preparing for the five-daysa-week play since three weeks before the play started its daily 2 p.m. Monday through Friday July 10-31 run in a schoolhouse theater at 400 Main St., Falmouth.

The Salvation Army announced that it has decentralized its local social services staff to get social workers closer to those seeking help. With this change, effective July 6, The Salvation Army now offers social services support at each of its six area community centers. Social Services workers are instrumental in the process of providing emergency assistance and counseling to those in need. “We’re pleased to make this change to better meet the needs of our clients,” said Capt. Faith Miller, Divisional Program Secretary at The Salvation Army with oversight responsibility for social services. “Our clients, particularly in Cincinnati, have generally commuted to our downtown Cincinnati Family Ser-

vice Bureau for assistance. Now, those in outlying neighborhoods can seek assistance closer to home.” With this change, social workers are now available daily at each of the six area Salvation Army Community Centers, including the Family Service Bureau downtown. At the facilities downtown, as well as those in Price Hill, Finneytown, Covington and Newport, social workers are available to meet with clients daily, Monday-Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. At the Batavia facility, a social worker is available daily, Monday-Friday, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Visit the website at, and click on the “Locations” tab to find a local community center.

Church offers weekly summer camps

By Chris Mayhew

School year programs

The Creative Kids Academy, in its first full year at Plum Creek Christian Church, is sporting a full lineup of week-long themed summer camps for children to get them out of the house and staying active. Part daycare, and part church outreach, the academy is located in the Butler church at 13455 Alexandria Pike. The academy is a state licensed daycare and accepts state assistance funding from parents who qualify. For the summer, the academy scheduled 10 different themed day camps during consecutive weeks through Aug. 13. Remaining camps include “Crazy About Sports” July 19-23 with a field trip to a Cincinnati Reds baseball game, “Wild, Wild West” July 26-30 with a trail ride on a horse and The Great Outdoors Aug. 9-13. In addition to daily activities at

The Creative Kids Academy at Plum Creek Christian Church also features a preschool program and half-day programs for children in kindergarten when schools are in session. There are also half-day programs and children can be dropped off from some schools on Campbell County Schools buses, said Beth Cox, director of the academy. For information about the academy call 635-8050 or visit the website the church, there are two trips a week to the pool at Kincaid Lake in Pendleton County regular field trips to locations including the Cincinnati Zoo and the Newport Aquarium, said Beth Cox, director of the academy. Cox partnered with the church to create the academy. A focus of the camps is keeping the children physically active in structured activities and providing them with healthy well-balance meals is a priority, Cox said. Children can come to as few as two days of a five-day camp, she said. The academy opens at 6:30 a.m. and the staff remains until 6

p.m. Cox said “The early drop-off and late pickup is good for parents schedules,” she said. To escape the heat during the July 5-9 “Creation Station” camp, children played virtual Wii Fit video games inside including para-sailing, rock wall climbing and skateboarding. Brooke Ackerman, 11, of Alexandria, said she thinks coming to the church’s camps are fun because she likes the teachers and she has lots of friends there. “I’m never bored here, and at home you’re really bored,” Ackerman said.

Klopp, the new band director at Dayton High School, is working to offer the same to students at the school. “Being involved in music has given me so much, from educational opportunities to getting the chance to travel,” Klopp said. “My goal at Dayton is to give more students access to music and make the band a quality experience for the kids.” Klopp said he started in his school’s band in fifth grade and has been playing music ever since. “I actually wanted to quit at first, but thankfully my mother wouldn’t let me because she had paid for my instrument,” Klopp

said. “I eventually fell in love with percussion.” Klopp said his high school band director inspired him to become a band director and showed him a lot about working hard. Before coming to Dayton, Klopp worked as band director at a variety of schools in the Tri-state. “I really love teaching kids and seeing them succeed and achieve their goals,” Klopp said. Klopp said he is currently trying to get donations of instruments and money to buy instruments for students who want to be in the band, but whose families can’t afford an instrument. Klopp said he hopes to make the band bigger and make it a more important part of the Dayton community. To donate, contact Bill Klopp at or 292-7486.

private, and come away with constructive ideas to solve our issues. That is unique to our area and one all of our members should be very proud of.” Webster hopes to work on helping to build a greater visibility of the conference and to help increase publicity for the league champions

and all stars. An NKAC website is in the plans. “Sometimes I think our conference is not as visible as it should be. Hopefully we can highlight our League Champions, and All Stars as well as our successes a bit more in the coming years,” Webster said.

Next question

Last week’s question:

The post office has announced plans to raise its price for a first-class stamp from 44 cents to 46 cents, effective in January. Do you think this increase is reasonable? Why or why not? “The United States post office does a fabulous job for America! I think 46 cents is still a great deal to get a letter or card across town or the country. “Just think about what they pay for fuel for the trucks to get the mail to us!” E.E.C. “The post office is losing business at a frightening rate and operating in the red. This appears to be caused by a change in the way companies advertise and the way people correspond and pay their bills, not anything to do with the price. “USPS will have to trim their operations and probably cut back service, but these things require political approvals and take a long time. In the meantime, they have no choice but to raise rates. “If you don’t like it do what everyone else has done and start corresponding and paying your bills electronically.” F.S.D. “I believe the 2-cent increase in the first class rate is very reasonable. The post office is having financial difficulties for a number of reasons, one of which is that they have always been a generous employer, paying their employees very good salaries and benefits. “I don’t begrudge post office employees these perks, but in today’s economy there aren’t many non-government employers who can afford to do that. “The other reason for the post office’s problems is, of course, the decline in the use of ‘postal mail’ for correspondence; electronic communication like cell phones, texting, twittering, and other means have encouraged a lot of people to use these methods of communication. That’s a shame, too, because there is a lot of pleasure and satisfaction in the trading of actual ‘letters’ between friends and family. “The only people who I think will suffer from this nominal increase are those who employ mass mailing of first-class mail, and I feel for them. “The bottom line is that a 2cent increase isn’t that difficult for most ordinary people to handle.” Bill B. “Does it really matter whether it is reasonable or not, no, because we have no say in these types of government affairs. “The government doesn’t know how to run businesses and this is the perfect illustration why they run everything in debt. “Someday, the public must stand up and say: enough is enough. Whether it be local, city, state, or federal – get your house in order. Mine has to be.” D.J. I guess the request is reasonable since the post office is losing business every day and has to make up for lost revenue. Why? Because if anyone is like me, people pay their bills online to avoid the mail and the cost of mailing. It’s easier and faster and you can wait until the last day to make a payment. You can set up automatic payments, you can have your check direct deposited, and in most instances it costs you nothing but your time.”

Should Congress extend unemployment benefits? Why or why not? For how long? Send your answer to “” with Chatroom in the subject line. “I think the post office needs to change with the times and offer new, innovative services in order to survive. Personally I like to send cards and occasionally letters via the post office, but more and more, people are turning to the quickest, fastest and most costeffective means, which isn’t the post office.” R.L.H. “No, this increase isn’t reasonable – rates were increased from 42 cents to 44 cents just last May. “Plus, the increase is counterproductive; the higher the rates, the less mail people send and the more money the post office loses. “They should take the WalMart approach, and go for volume. The mail carrier walks the same route whether carrying a bagful or 5 pieces of mail!” J.S.B. “Depends on how you look at it. Reasonable to get a piece of mail to California for 46 cents, it is a bargain. “Hiking the rates again 2 cents for first class mail ... it is not needed if the post office would stop making Saturday deliveries. Savings in fuel, vehicle maintenance, and personnel salaries and benefits is enough to offset the cost of first-class mail rate hikes.” O.H.R. “The post office is just another good example of the government trying to run something and failing miserably.” L.D.B. “Each time the U.S. Postal Service requests a rate hike, my first reaction is ‘Oh, No, not again!’ But I quickly realize how reasonable the request is. “I work for the federal government and I know how hard letter carriers work for the small amount of money they make. When one thinks about how incredible it is that we can drop a letter in the mailbox one day and have it arrive at its destination (sometimes across the country) in just two or three days, 46 cents seems pretty fair. “The electronic age is killing the postal service, a privately-run business with monstrous overhead. E-mails are (sadly, in my opinion) rapidly replacing real letters so those of us who either prefer to or need to send "snail mail" should understand that's it's going to cost us a bit more for this service. 'Nuff said ...” M.M.

Peace talks

The health threats of smog It is smog season again. This smog season the Ohio-KentuckyIndiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI) is raising awareness about the health risks associated with smog and air pollution. The information campaign goal is to get residents to take action against air pollution in the greater Cincinnati region. “Smog is not only an environmental issue, it’s also a health concern” said OKI Board President and Campbell County Judge Executive Steve Pendery. “Because many people are unaware of smog’s health implications, they do nothing to protect themselves.” Exposure to smog can limit the ability to breathe, reduce lung function and irritate respiratory systems. Smog may aggravate chronic lung diseases such as emphysema and bronchitis. Studies have shown that exposure to air pollution may reduce the immune system’s ability to fight off bacterial infections in the respiratory system. Air pollution has even been linked to appendicitis and ear infections. Smog is a pollutant that affects everyone. Those particularly at-risk include children, adults who are active outdoors, people with respiratory diseases and the elderly. It is especially important for sensitive groups to know if a smog alert is in effect. Smog alerts are issued when there is a high level of ozone or particle pollution making the air unhealthy. When a Smog Alert is in effect, sensitive groups should

avoid outdoor activity. Others should limit outdoor exertion and plan outdoor events when the pollution levels are lower, like in the mornings or Callie evenings. In order Holtegel to know if a smog has been Community alert issued in the TriRecorder State, listen or guest watch local news, columnist or call 1-800-621SMOG to receive smog alerts by email or fax. While limiting time outdoors can help protect your well-being from the negative impact of smog, the best way to ensure a healthy life is to do your share for cleaner air. Joining the fight against smog is the ultimate health protection from air pollution and the greatest contribution to the current state of air in the Tri-State. The American Lung Association released their annual report card for 2010 on Air Quality in cities in the United States. Cincinnati was ranked as the ninth most polluted city by year round particle pollution and 18th most polluted by ozone. This ranking illustrates the severity of air pollution in the OKI region and the necessity for individuals to make positive contributions to air quality. Doing your share is something that can be simple and easy. Individuals can reduce smog by riding a bike, refueling after 8 p.m., con-

“It doesn't bother me much. It's just evidence that the USPS is pricing itself out of existence. “They used to pay the bills because of the volume of bulk, business, and personal mail – but now e-mail and Internet have taken a lot of their business. Who writes letters, anymore? “Since they are held captive by unions who would rather see the entire ship go down rather than accept concessions, cut costs and improve efficiencies like private businesses have done – they are doomed. “Imagine if a private company operated as slowly and impersonably as the post office counter employees at the Nagel Road Anderson branch.” P.C.

Changing your daily habits could change your life,” said OKI Executive Director Mark Policinski, “In fact, it may save your life.” These potentially serious and harmful effects illustrate the importance of knowledge and understanding smog levels.

Students take the lead on military museum tour

By Amanda Joering Alley


Best Friends Forever Grant’s Lick residents Kayla Kavanaugh, left, and Grace Florimonte, both 9, share a friendship dating to when they were 3 years old and in a dance class together.

Friends who stick together Whether sharing a giggle or a helping hand when stuck in a muddy creek, 9year-old best friends Kayla Kavanaugh and Grace Florimonte are always there for one another. Florimonte and Kavanaugh are both residents of the Grant’s Lick area and frequent visitors to one another’s houses. They both play soccer, go camping, and to the movies together. They’ve known each other since age 3 when they took a dance class together. “We have so much in common, and she’s always there for me if I need a hand,” Florimonte said. Florimonte said she once went down to a creek and got stuck in the mud up past her ankles and her best friend “Kayla” was there to

help. “She pulled me out,” Florimonte said. They live about five minutes away from each other and their parents make sure they get to see each other often, Florimonte said. “We have sleepovers maybe once a week,” Florimonte said. Kavanaugh said she likes Florimonte because she’s funny, nice and helpful. Sometimes when playing the Rock Band video game, Florimente starts singing, and it’s funny, Kavanaugh said. “She just knows how to make me laugh a lot,” Kavanaugh said. Both friends said they plan on being friends for a long time. “She’s sort of like family to me,” Florimonte said.

A week-long camp at the Fort Thomas Military and Community Museum is teaching children and teens about history and how to present it to others. At the Fort Thomas Junior Renaissance Camp’s Docent Training, participants are learning how to be a museum tour guide. Renaissance Manager Debbie Buckley said after seeing how many local children were interested in helping out at the museum, she decided a training camp would be a good way to get them involved. “The kids get to pick a room in the museum that they are passionate about and are learning how to talk about it to a group,” Buckley said. To lead the training, the Renaissance program brought in Jodie McFarland, a graduate student in Northern Kentucky University’s Small Museum Management Program. McFarland said the goal of the camp is to teach the guides to do more than give museum visitors the facts. “The goal is to be able to

history and leadership. “History has always been my favorite subject in school, and I like getting involved in leadership programs, so I thought this would be a good opportunity,” Reed said. The camp, which ran Monday, July 19 through Thursday, July 22, is going to be followed by the second

Junior Renaissance camp, Fort Thomas - The Army Post, which will concentrate on the city’s military history, from Monday, July 26 through Thursday, July 29. For more information about the camps or the Junior Renaissance program, contact Debbie Buckley at 572-1225 or

There is a reason why grace is called amazing There’s something peculiar about the appeal of the hymn “Amazing Grace.” It’s a religious song, yet popular in a secular age. Its language expresses human powerlessness during an era of technological genius and human success. Its theme is even about a subject that can’t be accurately defined or scientifically scrutinized. Why its popularity? Why is it sung with such gusto? On an unconscious level it lets us acknowledge a truth we count on dearly – the help of God as we live out our lives. In his book, “The Magnificent Defeat,” Frederick Buechner writes, “For what we need to know is not just that God exists, not just that beyond the steely brightness of the stars there is a cosmic intelligence of some kind that keeps the whole show going, but that there is a God right here

in the thick of our day-by-day lives. … It is not objective proof of God’s existence what we want but the experience of God’s presence.” Father Lou And that’s Guntzelman exactly the truth Perspectives “amazing” that the hymn professes. Many of us come to a point where we can look back and recognize certain accomplishments we’ve experienced exceeded our own strength. The word “grace” has as its root the Latin word gratis, for “gift.” We get grace all mixed up with good fortune. Grace teaches us the opposite. When I am lying flat on my face in the dark and someone hands me a lit candle, that is God’s grace. And when I am flying high

enjoying my own success and powers and I run into a flock of geese, that is God’s grace too. If God is God, then grace is active just as much in the things that threaten and humble me as in the events that help me endure or lift me up on eagles’ wings. It is God’s presence that makes grace, whatever the circumstances. As Barbara Brown Taylor states, “With grace my spiritual math collapses. One plus one does not equal two but at least three and perhaps 3,000.” We are offered more of everything than our own notions of ourselves can hold. Again, Taylor writes, “To give into grace is to surrender our ideas about who God should be in order to embrace God’s idea of who we are and to have the good sense to say ‘Thank you.’ ” Interestingly, we may approach the notion of God’s presence in

our lives with ambiguous sentiments. Certainly we want God’s help in life. Yet … we’re somewhat afraid of losing our human individuality and freedom. In a sense, a person may fear God “messing around with my life.” If that’s the case, we might benefit from knowing something else about grace. Its purpose is not to stifle our humanity but intensify it. Grace is an awesome partnership in which God remains utterly sovereign and we become authentically free. God contributes all that God can and we can open and contribute (if we so choose) all that we can. Grace is God’s self-gift, our response is our self freely unwrapping and accepting the gift. Yet, paradoxically, the ability to open the gift (our freedom) is God-given too. It came when we were created. Sound complicated? What do

we expect when dealing with mystery, free will, and a God beyond all our words? Theologian Karl Rahner wrote, “It is clear from the nature of God’s self offer that the initiative (of grace) must lie with God. But we are not thereby condemned to passivity. A ‘salvation’ that did that would hardly be salvific. Still, the fulfillment of our openness is also something which we receive as a gift, not a product of our own making. ‘We love, because he first loved us’ (1 John 4:19).” It is always emphasized in discussing grace, that no human being can be saved as a result of his or her own goodness, virtue, success or religious practice or belief; we can only be saved by God’s grace.

Always get used car inspection before purchase Used car sales are up these days as buyers look to save money during this recession. But, before you buy a used car, there are certain things you need to do to make sure you don’t buy what had been someone else’s headache. Most people realize they need to take a used car for a test drive, but during that drive be sure you take it on the highway as well as local roads. That’s important so you get a chance to see how well it accelerates, and how smoothly is handles at high speeds. But a test drive is only the beginning. Unless you’re a trained auto mechanic it’s important to get the vehicle checked out by an ASE certified mechanic. If the seller won’t let you take it to be inspected, walk away and do business elsewhere. Sharon Hines of Delhi Township learned the importance of such an

inspection. “There was no warranty. I paid $4,400 – $4,977, with taxes Howard Ain and fees,” Hey Howard! she said. “I love the car. It needed an oxygen sensor and our salesman said other than that it had no mechanical problems.” Unfortunately, when the used car dealer sent the car for the repair, a great many more problems developed. The repair shop kept the car for more than two weeks. “They wouldn’t give me a loaner, so for 16 days I had to find a way to work and a way home,” said Hines. Once she got the car back she found it still had problems and returned it for more repairs. “I had the car for 28 days and they had it for 25,” Hines said. But, she said, the mechanics at the repair shop

were never able to fix it. “Never – and until I contacted you they weren’t going to fix it. They wanted me to pay and that’s why I contacted you,” she said. I suggested Hines take the car to an independent ASE certified mechanic to try to diagnose the problems. She did and, working with the dealer and that repair shop, Hine’s certified mechanic was able to fix a lot of things. The dealer who sold the car has agreed to pay for all the repairs – which so far come to more than $3,300. Hines said she’s learned a valuable lesson. “Get a used car inspected before you buy. It’s a lifelesson learned – big time,” she said. Such an inspection will cost about $100, but it is well worth it if it can keep you from spending thousands of dollars on a vehicle that will give you nothing but headaches. It’s important to get such an inspection whether the

dealer gives you a warranty or says you’re buying it “As Is.” Only when you get an inspection do you really know what you’re buying. In addition, ask for a copy of a Carfax report so you know the car’s history and can make a more informed

decision. One final thing, before you even go shopping, check with your bank or credit union to see how much money you can borrow. That way you’ll know the limit of what you can

Robin Maynard’s ‘gotta try this’ shrimp

Robin Maynard is a Mason reader and an enthusiastic and very good cook. Her original name for this recipe was “marinated grilled shrimp.” I think it goes way beyond that, so I’ve renamed it. She told me, “I love to create recipes. Many times I’ll eat at a restaurant and then go home and try to recreate the dish.” Her co-workers are guinea pigs (lucky them) and she recently enrolled in the Midwest Culinary’s program for pastry arts. Her goal? “To own a restaurant or bakery some day.” I think Robin’s on her way. 20 each shrimp, medium, uncooked, peeled and deveined 1 ⁄2 cup olive oil 2 tablespoons butter, melted 1 teaspoon garlic, minced 2 tablespoons cilantro 1 teaspoon ancho chili powder 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1 ⁄2 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄8 teaspoon pepper 4 each bamboo skewers pinch cayenne pepper

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Place shrimp in a gallon Ziploc bag and add mixture. Shake to evenly coat shrimp and marinate in refrigerator for one hour. Soak bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes so they won’t burn on the grill. Remove shrimp from bag, discard remaining liquid. Slide 5 shrimp on each skewer. Place a sheet of foil on grill grate and heat grill on medium. Place skewers on foil and cook for five minutes. Turn shrimp and cook another five minutes or until shrimp is done and golden brown. Serves four.

Mow, water your way to a happier summer lawn The summer season can be a very trying time for homeowners and their lawns. So, here are a few general tips to help keep your lawn looking its best this summer. 1) Keep mowing on a regular basis. Never remove more than 1/3 of the height of the grass blades each time you mow. 2) Mow at a higher mowing height. Keep your mowing height at least 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 inches. Longer grass blades mean less stress on the turf, the crowns are shaded and protected from the heat of the

sun, grass roots should grow deeper, and your turf will do much nicer during the u m m e r Ron Wilson sthan the In the l a w n s garden mowed close and stressed. 3) Change your mowing pattern each time you mow. Mow east to west one week, then north to south the next. Then take it diagonally. Just like the golf course pros do! This encourages your grass to grow upright, rather than laying down

(being mowed one direction all the time) and definitely creates a happier lawn! 4) Throw those clippings back into the turf. Returning those clippings is like one additional fertilizing each year. Grass clippings are 75 to 85 percent water, decompose quickly, and do not create thatch problems. 5) Have those mowers blades sharpened on a regular basis, which means at least three to four times throughout the mowing season. Dull blades shred rather than cut, which will give your lawn a yellowed look, and will make the grass more susceptible to

disease. 6) Be sure to clean out under the mower deck when you’re finished mowing. It’s important to remove that grass build up, especially if you have an under the deck exhaust. It also helps the mower deck to operate properly. So keep under the deck cleaned. 7) If your lawn doesn’t get enough rainfall, water as needed. Remember the golden rule of 1 inch of rainfall every 10 days or so for optimum growing. If we don’t get it naturally, you have to supplement. And when you do supplement, do it all at one

time; a deep, thorough watering. Deep watering creates a deeper rooted lawn, which makes it much sturdier during possible drought situations, as well as being a much healthier lawn. Please, don’t be a water tease. One thorough watering is much better for the lawn and all plants, than frequent water “teasing.” Ron Wilson is marketing manager for Natorp’s Inc.

Anthony W. Smith has graduated from Officer Candidate School (OCS) at Fort Benning, Columbus, Ga., and was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army. During the 14 weeks of training, the officer candidate received “basic soldiering” instruction in leadership, professional ethics, soldier team development, combined arms tactics, weapons defense, combat water survival, squad drill, intelligence, field training exercises, day and night land navigation, confidence obstacle course, common core tasks, communications, staff and general mil-

itary subjects, and physical fitness tests. The candidate is tested on leadership skills and team work abilities required of a commissioned officer. Students learned to utilize acquired skills to function in “leader and follower” positions in squad and platoon sized elements, and evaluated in various leadership garrison positions while in a stressful and demanding field environment. Smith is the son of Laura L. and stepson of Dan C. Hatfield of Highland Heights. The lieutenant graduated in 2003 from Campbell County High School and earned a bachelor’s degree in 2008 from Northern Kentucky University.

The African-American aviators, who derived their name from their training at Tuskegee Army Airfield in Alabama in World War II, had to overcome the institutionalized racism of a segregated American military. The saga of the Tuskegee Airmen began in July 1941, when 13 cadets entered training at Tuskegee Army Air Field. After nine months of training, five were commissioned as officers and received Army Air Corps silver pilot wings. From 1942 to 1946, nearly 1,000 pilots graduated from the Tuskegee program and received commissions and pilot wings. During this time, 381 Tuskegee aviators served overseas. The 332nd Fighter Group comprised initially of the 99th Pursuit Squadron saw combat in North Africa, Italy and Sicily. Although they did not see action during World War II, other pilots were trained as B-25 pilots for the 477th Bomber Group. The Tuskegee Airmen also created opportunities for African-Americans who trained in an array of support specialties. The sign unveiling today recognized not only the air crew but also the invaluable contributions of nearly 14,000 ground support personnel.

Planned Giving Council honors Campbell County residents The Greater Cincinnati Planned Giving Council recently presented Voices of Giving Awards to Alexandria resident Charles Michael Teal for his giving to Northern Kentucky University, and to Newport residents Fred and Ruth Joffe for their generosity toward the Talbert House. Teal’s history with Northern Kentucky University began in 1977 when, after retiring from the military, he became central warehouse supervisor and was responsible for the entire computerized inven-

tory system that is still in effect at the university today. Teal has supported NKU’s annual fund for many years. Most recently, he made a bequest gift to permanently endow two nursing scholarships at the NKU College of Health Professionals. These scholarships will be named to honor the memory of his daughter and a friend. He understands the vital need for qualified health care workers and has made it his life’s work to open

doors – now and far into the future -- to anyone who truly wishes to serve others through nursing. “Mike’s life as a retiree is being spent giving back in so many ways. He is truly making a difference in the lives of so many people,” wrote Nancy Bratton Perry, NKU director of planned giving in her nomination. A retired executive from the Procter & Gamble, Fred Joffe joined the Talbert House board in 1967. Since then he has served as board chair and now serves on executive, planning and

program committees. He also spearheaded the effort to create Talbert House’s successful business model. By continuously evaluating programs through client outcomes, this model keeps Talbert House at the forefront of best practices, high quality services, and contained costs. Passionate advocates for social justice, the Joffes gave a gift of life insurance to Talbert House so that their more than 40-year commitment to helping the agency help clients regain hope and

personal dignity will carry on for generations to come. “Their gift will have a significant impact on our ability to deliver our mission to those who need us most,” wrote Tracy Wells, director of development for Talbert House. Presenting sponsors for the GCPGC Voices of Giving Awards was The John A. Schroth Family Charitable Trust, PNC Bank, Trustee, the Johnson Charitable Gift Fund, and the Greater Cincinnati Foundation. The event was hosted by CET. The Greater Cincinnati

Planned Giving Council is a professional association of individuals whose life work is to helping ensure the viability of charitable organizations. It is among the first Planned Giving Councils nationwide to launch the Leave a Legacy Program that encourages individuals to leave a bequest or other planned gift to a nonprofit cause important to them. For more information about planned gifts, the public is invited to visit or call 513554-3071.
