Newport artist Eric Buschard, an artist in residence at FUNKe Fired Arts, makes a ceramic cup for his upcoming show at the Creative Hands Artisan Studio in Bellevue, “100 Cups in 10 Days,” which opens at 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 5 and runs through Tuesday, Aug. 30.
Newport artist presents 100 cups
By Amanda Joering Alley firstname.lastname@example.org
Using a unique soda kiln he built himself, Newport artist Eric Buschard is spending 10 days creating 100 one-of-a-kind ceramic cups of various shapes, sizes and colors that will be displayed in his upcoming show “100 Cups in 10 Days” at the Creative Hands Artisan Studio in Bellevue. The show, which begins at 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 5, and runs through Tuesday, Aug. 30, will give the community a chance to see and buy the cups, which Buschard creates using a method that is rarely seen in the area and produces a variety of effects. “We thought hosting this show

That’s a really big draw for people.” Buschard’s method involved building his own hybrid kiln,
which is an insulated chamber that is used in firing raw materials like clay to form ceramics, that combines the firing techniques of commonly used in wood and gasfueled kilns and also allows him to add soda ash, a rarely used compound that produces varying effects. Buschard, 30, said he has been creating art since he was a little boy thanks to the influence of his father, who is also an artist. “When I was little my brother and I got a Nintendo, and all we did was sit there all day playing it,” Buschard said. “My dad didn’t like that, so he made us turn off the game and taught us how to

Cold Spring to sue SD1 again By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
COLD SPRING - Council has decided to stop paying the city’s storm water fee bill to Sanitation District No. 1 of Northern Kentucky and sue the utility for a second time over the issue. Council decided unanimously after an executive session at the July 25 meeting to sue SD1 and stop paying the fee. Campbell Circuit Court Judge Julie Reinhardt Ward had already ruled Nov. 5, 2010 that the city may terminate its inter local agreement with SD1 to handle the city’s storm water collection system. The ruling and city’s decision to withdraw from SD1 where it comes to storm water services did not impact the utility’s separate agreement with the city to provide sanitary sewer service. The judge also issued an order specifically stating that she did not rule on whether SD1 was allowed to continue imposing a storm
Kentucky League of Cities lawsuit
Council also unanimously approved a resolution at the end of the July 25 meeting asking Kentucky Attorney General’s office to join the city’s lawsuit against the Kentucky League of Cities or at least advise the court. The Attorney General’s office has forced settlements and restitution from nonprofits recently requiring that ‘ill-gotten’ tax moneys be repaid, said Voelker. It’s in the Attorney General’s interest to join the city’s lawsuit because the KLC’s defense is based upon a reading of the law that says taxpayer dollars can’t be used to sue a taxpayer-funded entity, Voelker said. “We’re seeking to get the money back from people who went to strip clubs and stuff like that, he said about examples of past KLC expenditures the city is trying to obtain a refund for all member cities. water surcharge fee. Council decided to stop paying its storm water fee bill for all parks and lands owned by the city, and also to sue SD1 to stop charging land owners in the city and recoup the fees already collected by the utility, said Brandon Voelker, the city’s attorney. Voelker said SD1 has continued to tax residents and the city despite the city deciding to manage its own storm water collection system. “The city is ready, willing and able to do it themselves,” Voelker
said. “We don’t need SD1.”. After the city decided to go its own way, representatives of state government met with the city administrator about requirements the city needs to meet. In order to do that, the city needs the money SD1 has collected from the city, but mostly not used over the years, Voelker said. “We cannot send them $1.8 million and get back $77,000 in return,” he said.

NEWPORT - The 103,700square-foot modern expansion of Campbell County’s historic courthouse is six months behind schedule, but remains within the original $29 million budget. The anticipated completion date is now March 2012. Construction managers and members of the Campbell County Project Development Board overseeing the project, discussed reasons for the delays in construction at a Wednesday, July 27, meeting in Newport. “We are about six months behind on our total project, and out of that, about three months of that have been for things like weather,” said retired Campbell Circuit Judge William Wehr, chairman of the project development board. It’s looking like March is the new completion date, Wehr said. Daily reports show the number of workers on the project upwards of 60 people each day and sometimes more than 70 people, he said. “So, slowly but surely we’re starting to make up a little time,” Wehr said. The project was delayed from nearly the start because the subsurface conditions of the soil beneath the construction site required extra communication about the design, said Jim King, a representative on the board for Kentucky’s Administrative Office of the Courts. King said besides “nit-picky things” he doesn’t have any concerns about the building after touring the progress. “It looked good to me,” he said. “I’ve been through every square inch of it.” Speaking as an audience member, Bob Compton, a member of the Campbell County Courthouse Commission, said he was concerned about rust on metal studs and the delays in construction. The courthouse commission owns the Newport courthouse. Compton said he feels compelled to speak up about his concerns even if it makes him unpopular with some people. “I believe the courthouse commission has a duty to get everything we bought,” Compton said. Chief Campbell Circuit Judge Julie Reinhardt Ward who is a project development board member said some of Compton’s concerns were legitimate and worthy of addressing. The rust is the most concerning, and whether the materials need to be replaced, Ward said. “The project is not going to cost

said he explored many styles of art, from sculpting and drawing to writing poetry and playing music. It was during his time at NKU that one of his teachers, Kevin Smith, introduced him to ceramics. “I’ve always loved art and been an artist in any way that I could, and I still enjoy doing different things, but when Kevin showed me ceramics and I instantly fell in love with it,” Buschard said. “If it wasn’t for Kevin Smith, I wouldn’t be the artist I am today.” After earning his bachelor’s degree in fine arts, Buschard worked various jobs in galleries and sold his sculptures and ceramics and about a year ago, got accepted as an artist-in-residence with FUNKe Fired

Arts in Cincinnati, where he creates pieces of art, teaches and leads workshops. During his time at FUNKe, Buschard said he read about someone who was using soda ash and decided he wanted to give it a try. “I’ve always been interested in different firing techniques, and I have a very scientific approach to my artwork and enjoy the exploration of different styles and materials,” Buschard said. “For me, it’s more about the act of creating the art than it is about the finished product.” Buschard said when it comes to his upcoming show in Bellevue, he wanted to do something extreme and came up with idea to make 100 unique cups in 10 days. Scribner, who attended NKU with Buschard, said she is excited to host his show at the studio, which is located at 305 Fairfield Ave. “Eric is very talented, and I’ve always loved his work,” Scribner said. “I’m glad to have the opportunity to show his work.” For more information about the show, call Creative Hands Artisan Studio at 431-2100.

more,” she said. It’s important the project is on target for a March completion now, Ward said. The structural steel and frames for the doors are primed with rust-resistant coatings, and the rust that people are seeing is in the metal studs for the walls, said Chris Greene, of CMW Inc., the project’s architect. “Anything that’s noncompliant, we’ll just remove it and replace it,” Greene said. The new courthouse addition will be ready to move into by the end of March, said Billy Lane, project manager for Codell Construction, the company overseeing the contractors working at the courthouse. “I think you’ve got a great building, and I’m not a bit ashamed of it,” he said. “I wouldn’t be a bit afraid to shelter there in a storm.

Boone County hires regional dispatch consultant By Stephanie Salmons email@example.com
Northern Kentucky leaders are taking steps to see if a regional emergency communication system is feasible. The Boone County Fiscal Court unanimously approved a professional services agreement with Minneapolis-based Paul Linnee for consultative services regarding such a system. According to county administrator Jeff Earlywine, Linnee is a nationally recognized consultant who has previously done work in the region. “(He) has been retained by all
three fiscal courts, Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties, to advise us on this larger question of possible consolidation of dispatching centers, as well as possible migration with newer technology on the emergency communication system in the region,” Earlywine said. The counties are asking Linnee to come on board not to complete any projects, but to be an “expert adviser” to the fiscal courts, he said. “To help us get to the right people, ask the right questions and help us assemble some resources that will enable us to go out and answer some of these big meaty
questions we’ve been talking about,” Earlywine said. Linnee will be paid $125 an hour. The cost would be shared by the three counties on an equal basis, he said. Boone County will be managing partner and will invoice the other two counties for their portion of the costs on a monthly basis. There is no specified period for the services and there is no cap on the amount he could be paid. However, Earlywine said the counties will determine monthly how much or how little they want to retain Linnee to work. Darwin Spare of Burlington
asked the fiscal court what the driving force behind hiring a consultant was. According to Judge-executive Gary Moore, there are currently five dispatch centers in three counties. “In the age we’re in with new technology and new requirement from federal agencies that are driving costs substantially, there’s some thought that having a combined dispatch center across the three counties ... could be a more effective business model,” Moore said. No decision has been made on whether a merger will take place. “This is part of the process to
determine whether a merger is a more efficient business model and a more effective business model,” Moore said. Commissioners Charlie Kenner and Matt Dedden previously served on a committee looking at 911 funding, Kenner told Spare. Funding is a problem, Kenner said. “Our landlines are decreasing rapidly. We’re going to have to deal with this. We’ve seen this coming for a while,” he said. A possible regional emergency communications systems is among topics for an Aug. 11 joint meeting of Boone, Campbell and Kenton fiscal courts.

State honors Campbell County’s teacher training By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
ALEXANDRIA - Campbell County Schools’ staff professional development program has been singled out as a program other educators in the state should follow. The district’s “Investing in Our Future” model won the Kentucky Association of School Administrators 2011 Dr. Tom Vest Professional Development Award. The award is named for Vest, who organized the Kentucky Department of Educations’ first professional development program. The winner is announced by KASA at the organization’s summer conference each July in Louisville. According to a news release from KASA, Campbell County’s model enables the district to target training needs and tap into knowledge of experts from within the district in lieu of relying on outside trainers. “The Campbell County model is one to be emulated,” said Wayne Young, KASA executive director in the news release. “Their hard work in this critical area is vital to the success of Kentucky Kids.” Shelli Wilson, Campbell County’s associate superintendent, said she was extremely honored to accept the award for the entire district at the KASA’s July 13-15 summer conference in Louisville. Wilson said the district’s “Investing in Our Future” professional development program has evolved over the past four years to the point where it is now. More than 300 teachers and classroom staff members, all from within the district, participated in the summer in-house professional development program, she said. The sessions covered topics including technology integration in the classroom, student engagement techniques, high-level
questioning strategies, and accelerated learning and gifted and talented students, WilWilson son said. “Everything is typically tailored to their grade and their content area,” she said. “We try to keep it very manageable so they can walk out and use it tomorrow.” In addition to the staterequired four days of professional development, the district also has four more planning days broken up throughout the school year, she said. That’s a total of eight professional development days during the school year, Wilson said. The extra days are a way to make time for teachers to talk and work together on standards, she said. When it comes to choosing topics for the program, multiple levels and focus areas are met by soliciting feedback and input from teachers about what they either want or need to grow professionally, Wilson said. The district’s leadership realizes classroom instruction only improves with the most effective teacher, she said. “If you are not working to improve that teacher, you’re not going to see an improvement in the classroom,” Wilson said. Employees with expertise in needed areas are sought out for many of the district’s professional development program so it’s easy to do follow-up later, she said. One of the most important parts is checking back to see how the training is being put to use, Wilson said. “We ask them when can we go back and see this in the classroom,” she said.

This year, students at Highlands Middle School will have more options when deciding what to wear each day. The school’s Site Based Decision Making Council recently changed the student dress code, which for the past 10 years prohibited students from wearing jeans, athletic clothes and shirts with pictures or writing. Mary Adams, the school’s former principal who now works in the district’s central office, said the old dress code was adopted 10 years ago when the new middle school building opened and some parents came to the council asking for a stricter dress code. “In this economy, it is becoming increasingly difficult for some families to buy their children clothes they normally wear plus clothes that fit the school’s dress code,” Adams said. “We just felt that some of the rules prohibited things that wouldn’t be distracting to the educational process, so there wasn’t a good reason to keep those guidelines.” The new dress guidelines
The school’s Site Based Decision Making Council recently changed the student dress code. only require that students’ clothes are an appropriate size and length and that the clothes don’t have inappropriate words or pictures on them, Adams said. The school’s current principal, Mark Goetz, said the new guidelines mean the school still has a standard of dress, but it’s not a strict dress code anymore. “With the changes, we can keep an appropriate educational environment, while still letting the students dress comfortably,” Goetz said. Goetz said the council did a good job of transitioning from the dress code to what they have now, which he considers more “dress expectations.” “The new expectations will ensure students are maintaining a nice appearance and not distracting other students, but it also gives them a chance to express themselves,” Goetz said.

Newport grad sees success in computer technology By Amanda Joering Alley firstname.lastname@example.org
Since his childhood, Jared Hatfield has had a passion for computer technology that has led him to accomplish many things throughout the years. Hatfield, a 2006 graduate of Newport High School, received his master’s degree in engineering with a specialization in computer engineering and computer science from the University of Louisville in May. “Jared was very driven from a very young age,” said Diane Hatfield, Jared’s mother. “In kindergarten, he told everyone that he wanted to be a computer programmer when he grew up.” One summer when Jared was in middle school, the family stopped at a book store to get something fun to read while traveling on vacation, and Jared’s choice was an electrical instruction manual, Diane said. “He always wanted to keep learning more and more,” Diane said.
At that young age, Jared said he always found himself wondering how things worked and enjoyed taking things apart and building things. Those interests carried on into high school, where Jared worked part-time helping the school’s computer technicians. After being named valedictorian of his senior class, Jared accepted an academic scholarship to the University of Louisville J.B. Speed School of Engineering, where he continued to excel, Diane said. “My time at U of L gave me a lot of hands-on experience and allowed me to get involved with student government and other activities,” Jared said. During his time at the school, Jared was active in the student council, served as director of the 2011 Engineering Expo and won several awards, including the 2011 Wiliam S. Speed Award and the 2011 Raymond I. Field Award, both given to the student who has contributed the most the school and department.
Jared was also awarded the 2010 Computer Engineering and Computer Science Co-op of the Year Award and the 2010 Outstanding Senior Award. During his sophomore year when the school began a tablet PC program, Jared created the Student Tablet User Group and recorded video podcasts giving tips on using the tablet PC and collected student input about the program. “My goal was to help shape the program from a student’s perspective,” Jared said. Since his graduation, Jared has been accepted into General Electric’s two-year Information Management Leadership Program. He will do four six-month rotations in the company, learning about different aspects of the business. “This will give me a chance to see which area I like and which will be the best fit for me,” Jared said.

Mustangs, Camels growing in girls golf By James Weber
CAMPBELL COUNTY – A young Bishop Brossart High School girls golf team is getting older and better for head coach Suzette Glaab, who enters her fourth year at the helm. She has four juniors, two sophomores and four freshmen on her roster this year. “I am excited about our season this year because all of our players will be in high school,” she said. “The last two years we have been struggling to have a team and no player has been older than a sophomore. This season we will have some experienced players. Additionally, we have some more new players who are going to offer depth to our program.”
Despite their youth, the Mustangs won the 10th Region All “A” championship last year and played at state. They only won one dual match for the season, however. Returning starters are junior Lauren Seiter, sophomore Brittany Burkhardt, freshman Taylor Burkhardt, sophomore Madi Schneider and junior Catherine DeMoss. Brossart was set to play Campbell County Aug. 1 and then participates in the Pendleton County tournament Aug. 9. Brossart hosts Simon Kenton Aug. 4. Campbell County had its first winning season in girls golf last year, going 6-5 in matches under head coach Lynne Gokey, who enters her third season. Returning starters are Kara
McCord, Mary Bunzel, Lydia Clark, Cora Byrd, and Amber Roseberry. McCord and Bunzel, both juniors, had some medalist honors last season. Marissa Visse and Katie Youtsey picked up some JV experience last year and should contribute this season. “They have been working on their game during the summer and some of last year’s JV team have improved and will help the varsity,” Gokey said. “I’m looking for a strong finish in the conference tournament and hopefully send a couple of girls to the state tournament.” Newport Central Catholic’s Courtney Tierney finished second in the girls division in the 7-Up Junior Tour championships this summer. She looks to be one of the top girls
golfers in Northern Kentucky this year. On the boys side, Highlands returns all five of its starters from last year’s state qualifying team, including senior Hunter Majewski, freshman Parker Harris, freshman Jeff Lynne, freshman Laine Harrett and sophomore Majewski Jackson Bardo. Majewski was runner-up at the conference and regional tournaments and averaged 38 per nine holes. The Bluebirds were active on the 7-Up Junior Tour this summer.

Bishop Brossart 2011 graduate Felicity Britt signs to play volleyball for Thomas More College in June.
Brossart volleyballer heads to TMC By James Weber firstname.lastname@example.org
ALEXANDRIA - Pennie Wiseman had tryouts for her Bishop Brossart High School volleyball team July 15. Her best player from the 2010 season was there, but only as a helper and not an active player. Felicity Britt will take her talents to Thomas More College this fall after completing an outstanding career at Brossart and graduating in 2011. Britt will be part of the Saints volleyball program. “We’re going to miss her this season,” said Wiseman, the Brossart head coach. “We’re definitely going to miss her leadership and skill. We hope as a team to
go watch her play at Thomas More.” Britt was the top player for Brossart last year, leading the team in kills and most other categories as well. “She was the leader of the team, the go-to player on and off the court, not only for strategy but leading the team and bringing them together,” Wiseman said. The Mustangs were 21-9 last year, winning the 39th District championship. Brossart also won the 10th Region All “A” tournament. Britt had been eyeing the Thomas More program for a while, as she wanted to play in college but be close to home as well. She joins a highly suc-
cessful team, as the Saints have won the Presidents’ Athletic Conference regularseason and tournament championships each of the last two years and played in the NCAA Division III tourney both times. TMC, 28-8 last season, will open its new year in a home tournament Sept. 2-3. The 2011 edition of the Mustangs start the season at home Aug. 11 against Villa Madonna. Wiseman said they return four seniors who started last year but will have big holes to fill in the form of Britt and libero Marie Heeb.

N. Kentucky prepares for sports reunion Aug. 20 By James Weber email@example.com
While at a funeral several months ago, Dale McMillen lamented that there are many Northern Kentucky sports figures he only sees at funerals. McMillen, a former area coach and radio broadcaster, is trying to get friends together in life and not just in death. McMillen is organizing the inaugural Northern Kentucky Sports Reunion, which will be 1 p.m. to midnight Saturday, Aug. 20, at Rivershore Sports Complex in Hebron. All former players, coaches, officials and fans are invited to the daylong outdoor get-together. Admission is $5, which will benefit the KY Circuit Clerks’ Trust For Life program – a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness about organ donation. McMillen, who had a lifesaving double transplant two years ago, said promoting organ donation is one of the reasons for having the reunion.
The other is to preserve the history of Northern Kentucky athletics. He said as more coaches and administrators leave area schools, it gets harder for their younger replacements to keep that connection to a school’s past. McMillen is partnering with both the Northern Kentucky Sports Hall of Fame and Northern Kentucky Athletic Directors Association Hall of Fame to organize the event. While the reunion is basically a picnic giving patrons a chance to just sit and talk, there will be special additions to the festivities. Those include games, prizes, a live band and exhibits. A Legends softball game will take place and Charlie Coleman’s TV interviews with local legends will air throughout the day. For more information or to help with the reunion, contact McMillen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 3440968. See more sports coverage at www.cincinnati.com/blogs/ presspreps.

Alex Johnson, 10, and Stefan Clarkson, 10, of the Campbell County Lookouts, a 10U baseball team, were selected for the 2011 Southwest Ohio League (SWOL) 10U West All-Star team. They joined players in the division from Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky to take on the SWOL 10U East AllStar team at Haubner Field in Cincinnati July 7 . Alex was starting pitcher and Stefan was the starting catcher. Alex went 3-4, 3 RBI, and scored three runs. Stefan went 2-4, 2 RBI, and
scored two runs. While playing shortstop in the third inning, with runners on second and third, Alex made a fully extended diving grab behind second base to steal a run from the East AllStars and get the third out of the inning. Stefan blocked all pitches in the dirt and didn’t allow any runs on passed balls. At the end of seven innings, just under three hours, the SWOL West AllStars were victorious over the East All-Stars, 19-13.

The Highlands High School baseball team held its annual awards banquet on May 21 in the school’s cafeteria. Quenten Murray, left, was named Offensive Player of the Year; Eli Schultz, middle, was named Most Valuable Player; and Mitch Meyer, right, was awarded Defensive Player of the Year.
Arguably Northern Kentucky’s top senior pitcher, Alicia Miller, will continue her fast pitch softball career at Bellarmine University in Louisville next year. She becomes one of two Bishop Brossart players to sign this year. She has compiled a 75-28 career record at Brossart while pitching against some of the top teams in Northern Kentucky and the state. Her career ERA is 0.71 over 660.1 innings and 117 games. In those 660.1 innings she allowed just 427 hits, 199 runs (65 earned) while walking 31 and striking out 702. She owns 31 career shutouts. This season she is 22-5 with a microscopic 0.28 ERA while allowing just 111 hits in 173.1 innings. She has allowed 38 runs (7 earned while walking just 1 and striking out 184 with 10 shutouts). A First Team All-Region, All-Conference and Honorable Mention All-State Performer during her career she is an excellent student in the classroom and plans to major in physical therapy at Bellarmine. “We have been blessed with some great pitchers here at Bishop Brossart, but Alicia is at the top of the list with her ability, work ethic and heart. We all wish her only the best in her college softball and her career. It has been an honor to have had the privilege of coaching her,” coach Mel Webster said.

Lorenzen is commissioner
The Ultimate Indoor Football League (UIFL) recently named former UIFL MVP Jared Lorenzen decided to be the league’s commissioner for the upcoming season, effective immediately. “We are excited that Jared has accepted the offer to help build the UIFL brand,” UIFL League President Andrew Haines said. “He was an ambassador for the league as general manager and then quarterback in the league last season, and that will continue in his new role.” The former University of Kentucky star was a four-year starter and set school records in total offense, passing yards and passing touchdowns, eclipsing many marks set by 1999 NFL No. 1 overall draft pick Tim Couch. Despite the gaudy passing numbers, Lorenzen went undrafted before signing with
the New York Giants. He was the back-up quarterback on the Super Bowl XLII winning team. Lorenzen duties will include forming an advisory board of former or current NFL players, issue fines, suspensions, and other related sanctions relating to the football operations. Lorenzen will also compose a weekly blog, “Commissioner’s Corner,” updating the fans on UIFL progress. This is the second straight season Lorenzen has started in the front office. He was the first general manager of the Northern Kentucky River Monsters before deciding to step down to play quarterback. Lorenzen admitted the decision to give up playing and joining the league office wasn’t done overnight.
“It was a very difficult decision,” said Lorenzen. “Whatever happened last year, happened. Northern Kentucky is still my home. I still want to be around football. There is stuff I can do to help the guys in this league move up.”
The Northern Kentucky indoor football organization and the Ultimate Indoor Football League recently named the new head coach for the 2012 organization, and they didn’t have to look too far. Former River Monsters offensive coordinator Brian Schmidt will take over the helm of the new UIFL team. While it will be Schmidt’s first indoor head coaching position, he is unofficially 3-0

in charge. He oversaw the River Monsters while Rodney Swanigan dealt with personal family issues. “I am extremely excited about this opportunity,” said Schmidt. “This is as about as perfect a job as you can want. It’s a great arena with a great fan base. Regardless if there is a name change, we still have some momentum.” He oversaw an offensive that led the league in offensive and that helped Jared
Lorenzen earn the league MVP. Under his tutelage, all eight members of the NKY offense earned either first or second team UIFL honors. Schmidt anticipates that six to eight River Monsters players to return to the 2012 team. The franchise will play its games in the Bank of Kentucky Center on the campus of Northern Kentucky University.

Advice for properly planning for retirement Everyone has goals in mind for their retirement, but less than half of American workers have tried to figure out how much money they will need to accumulate for retirement. The majority of these individuals admit that they either guessed or did their own calculations. What about you? Planning Matters It’s important to realize that calculating a retirement savings goal does more than simply provide you with a dollars and cents estimate of how much you’ll need for the future. It also requires you to visualize the specific details of your retirement dreams and to assess whether your current financial plans are realistic, comprehensive and up-to-date.
Action Plans Following these four strategies will help you do a better job of identifying and pursuing your retirement savMarc Barone ings goals: • Double Community check your Recorder a s s u m p t i o n s . guest Before you do columnist anything else, answer these important questions: When do you plan to retire? Where and when do you plan to get your retirement income? Are your investment expectations in line with the performance poten-
tial of the investments you own? Over time we may modify our plans because of raises or changes in income over time. • Use the proper “calculator.” The best way to calculate your goal is using one of the many interactive worksheets now available free of charge online and in print. The online calculators will have blank spaces into which you can plug in your retirement information. One great feature to some of the online calculators is that you can change different variables. This can help you, but remember that this will not guarantee future returns. • Contribute more. Do you think you could manage to save another $10 or $20 each pay period? If you think so, here’s
some further motivation. Contributing an extra $20 each week to your current plan could provide you with an additional $130, 237 over 30 years, assuming an 8 percent return. • Meet with an advisor. A financial professional can help you determine a strategy - and help you stick to it. Retirement will likely be one of the biggest expenses in your life, so it’s important to maintain an accurate price estimate and financial plan. Make it a priority to calculate your savings goal at least once a year. Marcus A Barone is a financial representative for the Woodmen of the World Life Insurance Society in Alexandria.

CHATROOM Last week’s question
What do you do to “beat the heat?” “In order to beat the heat I just stay at home and be what my parents would call ‘lazy.’” DB “I can’t change how Mother Nature controls the outdoor temperature so I don’t dwell on it. If the weather people would stop reminding everyone about how hot it is outside, I don’t think heat would be at the front of everyone’s mind. I just go about my daily errands, etc. and I don’t dwell on it. Inside the home, keeping the blinds closed on the side of the house that is getting the sun until it leaves, and then repeating the procedure on the other side makes a big difference inside allowing for the thermostat to stay at a set number. Ours is at 76 degrees. Fans also help move the air for circulation. Remember people, it beats having ole man winter blowing at our doors! Think positive, in a hundred years you won’t know the difference anyway!” M.E.N.

Foster parents can help rebuild communities – one child at a time Necco has provided therapeutic foster care to area youth for over 14 years. Over the years we’ve worked with hundreds of kids from all walks of life, all ages and races, and all socioeconomic backgrounds. While foster care is about second chances and rebuilding lives, it is also about building and strengthening communities. Without the help of our amazing foster parents, we would have a very hard time giving these kids a second chance to become positive and productive members of society.

One foster parent recently told us, “You can live your life because of or in spite of what happens to you.”
Foster a child, foster hope
The only problem with good foster parents is that there aren’t enough of them to go around. With more than 50 children in out of home care in Boone County and 7,000 statewide, there is still so much more to be done. Thousands of children still need a home safe from harm. We salute all those who have dedicated their homes and their hearts to becoming a foster parent and we encourage others to open their homes to children in need. We won’t lie to you; foster parents work hard and display dedi-

Cold Spring resident Lori Gammon poses for a picture with her dog Harley.
Night out leads to family adopting a new pet By Amanda Joering Alley email@example.com
When Cold Spring resident Lori Gammon went to Cline’s on the River to see a band four years ago, she didn’t expect to come home with a new puppy. The puppy, a pit bull mix, had been abandoned at the Cold Spring restaurant and bar on Licking Pike, and Gammon, who owned others dogs at the time, said she couldn’t just leave her to live without a good home. “When she was a puppy, she looked like a Shar-Pei with a squished up little face,” Gammon said. “She was just so adorable.” So, Gammon wrapped the puppy in a blanket and took her home on the back of her then-boyfriend’s Harley Davidson motorcycle. It was couple weeks before Gammon and her
son, Steven Bryant, who was 14 at the time, came up with a name for their new pet, eventually deciding on the name Harley, she said. “We decided that since she came home on a Harley, it was fitting,” Gammon said. Since some of the customers and employees at Cline’s knew that she had taken the dog home, they asked Gammon how Harley was doing for months afterwards, and she brought Harley back to visit everyone there several times. Gammon said Harley is a great dog, who loves to go for walks and take rides in her truck. “She’s pretty rambunctious at times and likes attention, but she’s a very loving dog,” Gammon said.

Saddle-Up a 4-H riding tradition By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
CAMP SPRINGS - Each summer, area 4-H youth horse riders gallop into the Northern Kentucky Saddle Club’s grounds and put on a show. The Saddle Club’s arena is home to multiple other horse shows for adults and others throughout the year, but the 4-H shows are a good way to support youth interest in equine sports, said Tom Connley, president of the Saddle Club. “We don’t charge them anything because that’s our future customers for shows,” Connley said. Campbell County’s 4-H group is known as the “Saddle-Up Club,” and each show is an opportunity for the members to earn show points not only by riding, but also by helping to set up and later clean up the arena, said Gene Barbian of Alexandria, one of the adult leaders of the county’s 4-H. Not counting a possible rain make-up date, the next scheduled 4-H show dates at the Saddle Club are Aug. 20 and Sept. 18, Barbian said. Being in the 4-H club and working with and riding horses is a way of life, said Brianne Vogelpohl, 17, of Grant’s Lick. “I’ve just grown up around them,” Vogelpohl said. Vogelpohl said she has lots of friends who ride with 4-H, but not all her friends are people.
Brianne Vogelpohl, 17, of Grant’s Lick, gives a bucket of water to her horse Thunder before the start of the Campbell County 4-H Saddle-Up Club horse show in Camp Springs Sunday, July 31. “My best friend is my horse,” she said. Vogelphol said she has three horses, Thunder, Bambi, and Abby. “Thunder is my big baby,” she said. Brittany Hardesty, 13, of Burlington, said before the July 31 show she likes one thing about riding horses going fast. Hardesty said she loves being around horses, and it’s something she’s done since she was about 5 years old. “Basically, if there aren’t horses around me I’m just another girl walking around doing nothing,” she said. Hardesty’s grandfather, Mike Cassedy, of Union, said he was the first member of his family to ride horses, and that 4-H is a lot

“For me, it’s three generations of just going out and being with horses,” he said.

Here’s a real peach of a good cobbler
Combine first four ingredients in a pan, and let stand 10 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Bring peach mixture to a boil; reduce heat to low, and simmer 10 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat; add vanilla and butter, stirring until butter melts. Unfold two pie crusts. Sprinkle 1⁄4 cup pecans and 2 tablespoons sugar evenly over one pie crust; top with other pie crust. Roll to a 12-inch circle, gently pressing pecans into pastry. Cut into 11⁄2-inch strips. Repeat with remaining pie crusts, pecans, and sugar. Spoon half of peach mixture into a lightly greased or sprayed 13-by-9-inch baking dish. Arrange half of pastry strips in a lattice design over top of peach mixture. Bake at 475 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Spoon remaining peach mixture over baked pastry. Top with remaining pastry strips in a lattice design. Bake 15 to 18 more minutes. Serve warm or cold. *2 (20-ounce) packages frozen peaches may be substituted. Reduce sugar to 2 cups, flour to 3 tablespoons, and nutmeg to 1⁄4 teaspoon. Proceed as directed. Note: To make ahead of time, let baked cobbler cool; cover and freeze up to one month. Thaw in refrigerator overnight. Uncover, and reheat in the oven at 250 degrees for 45 minutes. Online: Want another peach cobbler that’s even easier? Check out “Easy Peach Cobbler” on my blog at Cincinnati.com (Cooking with Rita).

Oh my gosh, it was so good. Since peaches are coming into season now, it’s a good time to try this out. And if your peaches aren’t quite ripe, put them in a paper bag in a single layer. They won’t actually ripen more, but will become soft enough to use. Check out the area closest to the stems. If it’s creamy yellow, it has ripened on the tree. If it’s green, it may have been picked before it was ripe.

Check the start date of your extended warranty I’ve often warned about buying third-party extended warranties for used cars because some of the companies do little more than take your money. But now I’ve got an alert when buying such warranties directly from the auto manufacturers. While those are the warranties I prefer, you do have to check to see exactly what you’re getting. Doris Stemmer of Anderson Township bought a used Lincoln LS in 2007. At the time the salesman sold her an extended service warranty from Ford. “He told us the extended warranty would kick in at the end of the manufacturer’s limited warranty, which
w a s 50,000 miles. This w o u l d take us to 75,000 miles,” Stemmer said. Howard Ain Stemmer said Hey Howard! she was mostly concerned with how many miles she’d get on the car before the warranty expires. “It comes with 72 months or 75,000 miles, whichever comes first. When I had a problem I thought it was under the warranty. I took it in and they said, ‘Nope, your warranty was up 10 days ago,’
” she said. It turns out her warranty actually began two years before she ever bought the car – it began the day the vehicle was purchased for the first time. “The salesman said nothing about when the date started. If I knew when I was purchasing the extended warranty, which cost me about $1,200, that it started two years before I even owned the car, I wouldn’t have bought it,” Stemmer said. After paying more than $1,600 for the repairs Stemmer said the car now runs great. However, Stemmer said she has since discovered her Lincoln is not the only one

that has had problems. “I started finding a lot of stuff that was wrong with the 2004 Lincoln LS in particular, and they were things that they just had to fix on mine,” she said. Stemmer said she’s learned some valuable lessons. First, whenever buying a used car always check out auto websites to see if there were problems reported with that year’s make and model. Consumer Reports also has an extremely useful, very extensive auto history edition it publishes every year. These are invaluable tools to use before you decide to buy a particular vehicle. The key is not to fall in love with a used car at first site. First, check out the model’s history by using the

www.aquascapes.com or call 513 941-8500
various publications. Next, check out that particular vehicle by asking the seller for a Carfax report which details any accidents. Then, get the used car checked out by an ASE Certified auto mechanic. It may cost you about $100 – but it is well worth it to make sure you’re not buying someone else’s problems. Finally, when you buy an extended service warranty from the manufacturer remember it is not all uncommon that the mileage and time limit both began on the date the vehicle was first put into service, not the date of your purchase.

An Open Letter to Kenton County Residents
Don’t repeat Campbell County’s mistake Leader of effort to dissolve NKAPC in Campbell County admits removing planning agency was a grave mistake
Lloyd Rogers, the former Campbell County Judge-Executive and Tea Party activist who led the effort to eliminate the Northern Kentucky Area Planning Commission (NKAPC) in Campbell County almost 30 years ago, admitted that dissolving the planning agency in that county was a serious mistake. In an article in The Kentucky Post on December 4, 1990 (reprinted below), Rogers admitted that the planning agency was needed in the county. In the interview, Rogers acknowledged that NKAPC “has the expertise” and lamented “we threw the baby out with the wash.” Many Campbell County political, business, and civic leaders have recognized that the elimination of NKAPC severely damaged economic development and growth opportunities in that county.
Reprinted from The Kentucky Post, December 4, 1990; copyrighted material, permission granted. To review the complete article, go to www.4nkapc.org.
Now, the Homebuilders Association of Northern Kentucky (HBA) is trying to do the same thing in Kenton County. HBA and its members are spending more than $100,000 to dissolve NKAPC, the government agency that regulates the housing and construction industry in Kenton County. These special-interest groups have hired political mercenaries from California, Texas, Massachusetts, and elsewhere to gather signatures of Kenton County residents in an attempt to place this issue on the November ballot. Kenton County’s local governments do not support this effort. Each of Kenton County’s 18 cities and the Fiscal Court are represented on NKAPC’s oversight board. Kenton County elected ofﬁcials want NKAPC to continue to serve as the independent watchdog of the housing and construction industry. HBA wants to eliminate NKAPC so that their members and cronies – rather than local ofﬁcials you elect – can control planning and zoning in Kenton County. Is that what you want? Do not make the same mistake that Campbell County made almost 30 years ago. Get the facts. Support NKAPC and the important job it does regulating the housing and construction industry in Kenton County and planning for our community’s future. Do not sign the petition to dissolve NKAPC.
Have you been duped into signing a petition to dissolve NKAPC? Many Kenton County residents have registered complaints about harassment and misrepresentations by HBA’s out-of-state solicitors seeking petition signatures. If you believe you have been duped into signing this petition, you can remove your signature. Contact the Kenton County Clerk’s Ofﬁce or the Kenton County Attorney’s Ofﬁce to make arrangements to have your name removed from the petition. Ensure that your voice – not the HBA’s – continues to be the voice that is heard in Kenton County’s planning process. Keep our neighborhoods safe and strong. Paid for by concerned citizens and elected ofﬁcials in Kenton County. No public funds were used to pay for this message.

In fiscal year 2010-11 the general fund tax rate levied was 54.7 cents on real estate and on personal property and produced total revenue of $16,748,399, compared to that year’s expected total of $17,149,770 assuming a 100% collection rate.

Of the total expected tax revenue for 2011-12, $17,296,620 is projected to be collected as current year’s taxes, based on an estimated collection rate of 97%. The 2011-12 compensating general tax rate is 54.3 cents on real estate and 54.7 cents on personal property with total revenue expected to be $17,178,227 if these rates were used and if there were a 100% collection rate.
