By Amanda Joering Alley After a little more than a year since breaking ground, city officials and community members gathered to celebrate the dedication of the new municipal building in Highland Heights. At the event, held Saturday, July 31, the building was officially dedicated to the city’s citizens. “This is your day, this is your building,” Mayor Greg Meyers said to the crowd. The event brought out many local and state officials including Campbell County Commissioner Ken Rechtin, who spoke during the ceremony about the cooperation the city has shown with Southgate and Northern Kentucky University. “By cooperation and collaboration they can be more than what

they are alone,” Rechtin said. “This building demonstrates all that can be accomplished.” The new building, located at 176 Johns Hill Road across from the old city building, houses the city offices and the Highland Heights Southgate Police Authority offices. Besides the building, the city is also planning new recreational facilities including a baseball field, sand volleyball courts and a playground. Meyers said the new building represents the people of Highland Heights, and he is happy that it includes places for children. “The children running in our halls today will be running our city tomorrow,” Meyers said. Meyers said a lot of people including the city council and city employees put a lot of time and effort into the new building.


Mayor Greg Meyers watches as Kelly Keene Jones, speaking on behalf of her father State Rep. Dennis Keene, presents a dedication plaque to the city. “(Many people) did a lot of work to get us where we are today,” Meyers said.

Economy a boon for street program By Chris Mayhew

Call it street smarts for Cold Spring. The city is capitalizing on years of saving money by leveraging its nest egg to receive a 3-percent interest rate loan on $2 million to double the typical $1 million annually spent on streets. The city will save about 20 percent on the costs of its street repair projects in part because of heavily competitive bids received from contractors amidst an economic downturn, said Mark V. Brueggemann, director of engineering for CDS Associates, the city’s engineering firm. The increased spending on streets will also provide more work for the contracting companies involved, Brueggemann said. Council has approved a low bid to pave 12 streets in the city at a cost of about $1.4 million. Five construction bids were received for

the street work. The city’s longterm street repair master plan, adopted in 2004, originally called for paving about five or six streets this year with $1 million from an earmarked fund. The city was able to obtain a 3 percent interest rate for a $2 million loan repayable over 10 years, said Mick Vank, city administrative officer. The borrowed money is also being used to pay for asphalt repairs under way and nearing completion now on portions of Glenridge and Ridgepointe Drives, Vank said. The 12 streets council approved construction bids for at the July 26 council meeting include: Downing Street, Sturbridge Drive, Village Green, Westminster Way, the back section of Brightwood Drive, James Court, Saber Drive, the back section of Cedar Point, Millrace Drive, Joseph Place, Frances Drive, and portions of Madonna Lane.

The city is working to finalize a priority list for what streets will be paved and repaired first, he said. “A good target would be to get half of them done before this construction season was over,” Vank said. The interest rates were an opportunity for the city to receive competitive bids and put the city’s street plan years ahead, he said. Mayor Mark Stoeber said at the July 26 meeting that the city was trying to be proactive when creating its strategic plan in 2004 that dictated savings and a plan to eventually repair all the streets. The city has ended up in a position where it hasn’t had to cut services because of the economy, and with enough money in the bank to create flexibility, Stoeber said. “We didn’t see the worst economy since the Great Depression coming, but over the past two years the strategic plan has held,” he said.

What went from a one-day event with 5,000 visitors 10 years ago is now a three-day festival bringing in more than 100,000 people to Newport’s riverfront to celebrate one thing: Goetta. Fans of the pork, beef and oats mixture have made it clear that goetta is not just food, it’s a tradition. Mark Balasa, marketing director for Covington-based Glier’s Goetta, said since German immigrants brought goetta to the United State in the 1880s, it has been a staple in many local families. “Goetta has a lot of history and a whole lot of followers,” Balasa said. “We started Goettafest as a way to unite all these people.” While it started as a breakfast food, Balasa said the festival has helped expand goetta’s reach to lunch, dinner and, starting this year, dessert. At this year’s festival Graeter’s Ice Cream is introducing a goetta topping for their gourmet ice cream. “We’re not talking about crumbled goetta on top of ice cream,” Balasa said. “Graeter’s has created a special mixture that they put goetta in.” Along with the ice cream topping, goetta-lovers will have more than 30 other goetta dishes to choose from at the festival, including favorites like the goetta rueben and goetta balls. “Only Goettafest can get away with stuff like this,” Balasa said. For those who are a bit on the competitive side, the festival will feature the first-ever goetta coney eating contest. Also new this year, along with the main music stage, which will feature bands throughout the weekend, a new Goetta Unplugged stage will feature local musicians.

Northern Kentucky smoke ban’s future hazy By Paul McKibben and Regan Coomer and

Northern Kentucky’s proposed smoking ban was dealt a serious setback last week when Boone County said it would no longer participate in talks due to lack of support. The Boone County Fiscal Court announced July 30 it was withdrawing from talks with Kenton and Campbell counties about the issue. “In the process of working on draft ordinances, it is clear there is no support among members of the Fiscal Court to consider this issue in Boone County no matter how it reads,” Judge-executive Gary Moore said in a statement. “At this time, Boone County is removing itself from the process of a regional smoke-free ordinance.” Moore said at a Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce breakfast July 13 that Boone County didn’t have the votes to pass an ordinance. But Kenton County Judge-executive Ralph Drees and Campbell County Judgeexecutive Steve Pendery indicated they each had three of four votes to approve it. An effort to pass a regional smoking ban failed two years ago. Drees could not be reached for


With Shakey Shaw, owner of Shakey’s Pub & Grub in Florence, left, is Rick Potter, executive chef/owner of Stringtown Bar & Grill in Florence. Potter speaks during the Boone County Businessmen’s Association’s smoking forum July 29 at a Holiday Inn in Florence. comment, but has said it is possible that if Boone isn’t willing to move forward, Kenton and Campbell could pass a ban together. Kenton County Commissioner Kris Knochelmann doesn’t think Boone’s decision “changes the direction we’re going to be going.” “Ideally, the three counties would be best, however, it’s a public matter and we have an obligation to make a decision on it,” he said. Knochelmann, who hopes to put the issue to rest in the next few months, said he was “confident” that there is support for the ban with the Campbell County Fiscal Court. He said the business base of Boone County is different than that of Kenton and Campbell,

so if those two counties pass a ban, it shouldn’t give Boone an unfair business advantage. “We are similar enough that it’s not going to be a big issue if Boone County isn’t part of it,” he said. Pendery said he’s been on vacation and declined to comment at this time. American Lung Association representative Betsy Janes, on behalf of pro-smoking ban group Northern Kentucky ACTION, said Boone’s decision doesn’t “mean a whole lot.” “The counties were taking an all-for-one approach and Boone was holding them up. This frees them up to do what they need to do,” she said. “If Kenton and

Campbell are going to move ahead, that’s great news for us.” Boone County also released statements from county commissioners Cathy Flaig, Charlie Kenner and Terri Moore who explained their opposition. Flaig called it “a propertyrights issue.” Kenner, a dentist, said smoking bans have not “been properly enforced in other parts of Kentucky and I don’t see a need for it in Boone County” because of the number of smoke-free restaurants. Commissioner Moore said “because businesses are going smoke-free voluntarily, I will not support a smoking ban.” Anti-smoking ban group Northern Kentucky Choice welcomed Boone’s decision. “Consumers have asked for smoke-free venues by voting with their feet and the businesses have reacted accordingly. No law is required and the interaction of our market system will continue to work,” said Ken Moellman, a group spokesman. “The Boone County Fiscal Court recognized this. Hopefully, the fiscal courts of Kenton and Campbell counties will see this as well.”

Heated forum

Boone’s announcement followed an emotionally charged forum July 29 at a Holiday Inn in

Florence hosted by the Boone County Businessmen’s Association. A nine-member panel included health advocates, business people, an attorney and a representative of Northern Kentucky Choice. Michelle Eversole, senior health educator with the Northern Kentucky Independent District Health Department, said based on data from other communities, the department would expect to see a 15 percent reduction in heart attacks within the first year of implementing the law and a 36 percent reduction during three years. She said emergency room visits for asthma would decrease by about 300 per year. “So we would also expect to see about a 32 percent decline in smoking which would be a big cost savings and something our community really needs,” she said. Rick Potter, executive chef/owner of Stringtown Bar & Grill in Florence, said Eversole was making estimates that he finds unrealistic. “But I think it should be the right of the person going into your property from a restaurant’s point of view,” he said earlier in the event. Community Recorder reporter Chris Mayhew contributed.

Campbell school board approves a trainer contract By Chris Mayhew

Campbell County School District’s Board of Education has approved by a 3-1 vote to keep its current athletic trainer service. Negotiations on the incentive-laden contracts offered by NovaCare Rehabilitation and St. Elizabeth Healthcare executives on behalf of the hospital-affiliated Commonwealth Orthopaedic Centers

continued through the middle of a special July 26 board meeting. In the end, the board chose NovaCare, but only after St. Elizabeth declined to negotiate anymore midmeeting, and a recess where board members Janis Winbigler and Gary Combs met privately to discuss the issue. Winbigler said before going into the recess that football players were start-

ing practices and the board could no longer delay approving an athletic trainer contract. The July 26 vote to approve NovaCare’s contract proposal came after months of negotiations and two prior board meetings that resulted in a vote deadlock on which company to pick. The board initially received competing contracts for the July 12 board meeting from both companies. Since then, NovaCare upped its offer to match anything St. Elizabeth would do. Board chairman Gary Combs said at the July 26 meeting that St. Elizabeth hadn’t had a chance yet to see NovaCare’s revised offer or to make a new offer and asked St. Elizabeth representatives at the meeting if they wanted to respond. Tom Saalfeld, senior vice president and CEO of St. Elizabeth Fort Thomas, said the hospital is dedicated to providing whatever assistance it can for the schools as part of being a strong community hospital. But it was time to draw a line and St. Elizabeth wouldn’t offer another new proposal, Saalfeld said. “I’m reluctant to go back and try say ‘do we throw some more money into it?’ And then NovaCare goes back to their foundation or

grant,” Saalfeld said. Saalfeld declined to offer any further revised proposals. “I don’t think it’s fair to keep going back and forth here,” said Saalfeld to the board. Associate Superintendent Shelli Wilson, filling in for Superintendent Anthony Strong, said there was a recommendation from the superintendent to accept the contracts as submitted at the July 12 meeting. The recommendation from the superintendent was to approve St. Elizabeth’s contract at the July 26 meeting, Wilson said. Board member Mike Combs’ made a motion to approve St. Elizabeth’s contract and the superintendents’ recommendation died for lack of another supporter. Combs said he has been on the board long enough to remember when NovaCare was challenging a different athletic trainer service for the school’s business. The arguments were the same then that everyone was familiar with the previous provider, HealthSouth Northern Kentucky Rehabilitation Hospital, and comfortable with the existing athletic trainer, Combs said. At the time, the district was paying for an athletic trainer, and now because of instituting a competitive bidding process, companies want to pay the school

about $10,000, Combs said. “The fact is, Commonwealth has driven market responses, this is now a swing in my mind of $18,000 from what it was five-six years ago,” he said. Combs said he challenged the board if it was willing to negotiate from the table on a smaller money savings, then why not just do that on construction bids for school buildings in the future. Continuing to negotiate the contracts amounted to polluting the board’s formal bid processes, he said. “I understand, and I appreciate things in the 11th hour, but I’m telling you all as a board you are on a slippery slope, you are on a credibility cusp if you start accepting proposals and contracts and offers and add-ons after the fact,” he said. Board member Rich Mason asked the board’s attorney Garry Edmondson if there was any problem with accepting NovaCare’s newly submitted contract. “There’s nothing inappropriate about negotiating a professional services contract in this fashion, you don’t even have to bid it,” Edmondson said. Mason said while he admitted the bid process wasn’t necessarily smooth, for him the idea of switching comes down to the quality of service being provid-

NovaCare’s service has been excellent, he said. “I don’t think anyone has questioned that,” Mason said. “If I’m wrong and board members have some knowledge of it not being excellent I wish they’d speak up.” Mason said he saw no reason to change because the district is receiving good service from NovaCare and the board is getting the same deal from both companies now. Dr. Nick Gates, an orthopaedic surgeon with St. Elizabeth, said at the meeting that the hospital was invited by the board to submit a proposal for the athletic trainer contract. Several years ago the school district was paying annually for an athletic trainer instead of now receiving a financial incentive of about $10,000, Gates said. “Who is saving you this $18,000?,” he said. “It’s St. Elizabeth Hospital.”

Proponents of a ballot measure to change Campbell County’s form of government have established a website to advocate for their cause: They’re pushing for a change from the commissioner form of government to the magistrate, or justice of the peace, form. Instead of three commissioners representing three districts but elected countywide, they want eight magistrates representing eight districts and elected by district. They have submitted a petition to Fiscal Court to put the measure on the November ballot. County officials are now vetting the signatures; 1,200 registered voters are required.

Campbell summer camp is about Spanish By Chris Mayhew

Summer typically translates into no school, but for eight advanced Spanish students spending a July week in the classroom was their idea of cool. Students in the voluntary summer camp at Campbell County High School practiced skills like speaking ranging from using proper speech pronunciations to smashing each other with water balloons while shouting commands like “tirar” meaning “to throw,” agarrar meaning “catch” and “pegar” meaning “to hit.” It’s the first year for a Spanish camp at the school, said Spanish teacher Toni Schneller. The purpose of the camp is to recall and refresh what was learned previously, Schneller said. Playing off the soccer’s 2010 World Cup, which was won by Spain, the theme of the camp was about “goals” ranging from using the two personal pronouns “ser” and “estar” for describing “yourself” to learning about how to talk about time on a day-to-day basis as in what time an event is going to be,

The camp has a wide range of activities that focus students on learning in an interactive and more kinetic way, Schneller said. Of the eight students in the camp, seven will be in Spanish III in the fall and one will be in Advanced Placement Spanish IV, she said. The camp is more handson than a traditional class during the school term, said Bethany Bay, 16, of Alexandria, who is starting her third year of Spanish classes. There have been activi-

ties including writing captions on a computer in Spanish for a cartoon strip and making a video of themselves speaking the language, Bay said. “It’s more fun than doing book work,” she said. Bay said she has a personal interest in learning Spanish because a greatgrandmother had a Spanish ancestry. Bay said she spent three weeks in Mexico with her brother this year traveling across that country to learn more about the language she wants to become fluent in.

She plans to become a pediatric physical therapist and figures Spanish fluency will be important. “If kids come in and they’re speaking Spanish you have to be able to speak with them and understand them,” Bay said. Bill Anderson, 17, of California, entering his third year in Spanish, said he wanted to come to the camp to brush up because it’s his goal to become fluent. Anderson said he’s been on mission trips to several Spanish speaking countries and he wants to know the language to make future trips easier. It might also come in handy for his chosen career of criminal justice, he said.


Spanish teacher Toni Schneller talks about words she wants students in her advanced Spanish summer camp to use during a water balloon fight like “compartir” meaning to “share” when stocking up on water balloons to throw in a finale for the week-long camp at Campbell County High School Friday, July 30.

“We kind of mix Spanish and English at our house just to keep you on your toes,” he said.

Highlands band marching to a new beat By Amanda Joering Alley For weeks the marching band at Highlands High School has been preparing for a new season that includes a new original show. The band, which includes 47 high school and middle school students, has

been working daily on a new show called “Cityscape.” “This show is really neat,” said Lori Hopkins, the band director. “It’s all original music and is something the crowd has never seen before.” The show, which the band will perform at eight competitions and at High-

lands home games, also includes a lot of props that will fill the whole football field, Hopkins said. Senior Christian Mock said even though the band hasn’t done a show like “Cityscape” before, he has high hopes for the season. “It’s going really well so far and even though we have a lot of new people

this year, they are really good and really enthusiastic,” Mock said. Drum Major Emily Wright, a senior student who leads the band, said she expects big things out of this year’s group. “I think we’re going to do a lot better than last year,” Wright said.

Senior Daniel Johnson said he really likes the drill formations and the music in this year’s show. Johnson, who has been in the marching band for five years, followed his brothers footsteps into the band back then. “I didn’t think I would like it at first, but it has

Back in school already? No it’s camp By Chris Mayhew

Grant’s Lick Elementary School invited all of students entering fourth grade to come back to school during the summer for a summer camp primer to prepare for the coming year. About a quarter of the school’s new fourth-grade students showed up, a total of 10 students, said Mariann Smith, the fourth-grade teacher who ran the camp. Smith said the camp was about having fun. The children made paintings, practiced multiplication and learning about geometric line segments. They also created “writer’s notebooks” to take home, had the chance to play outside, and helped water a garden by the front sign where they discovered it was a home for many lizards, Smith said.

“I got to know these guys better and they got to know me better,” she said. Students entering fourth grade at Grant’s Lick move to a different building in the school’s complex where they get to switch between a few teachers instead of being with one teacher all day. The students don’t get their own lockers yet, but they do get their own private bin that’s not locked for supplies storage. All fourth-grade students will learn math and writing from Smith, and will switch classrooms to learn science and social studies from Aaron Himebaugh, the other fourth grade teacher. Both teachers, along with other staff will work with the fourth grade students in reading groups, she said. It’s a little bit like middle school, Smith said.

Travis Weaver, 9, of Grant’s Lick said he normally likes school and liked learning how to paint better and some multiplication facts during the camp. Weaver said his favorite part about the camp was finding out who is in his specific classroom. “The number one thing I like was figuring out that all my friends are in my class,” he said. Principal Amy Razor said the school has a different type of summer camp each year. Last year’s camp focused on all grades K-3 where 12 students who potentially needed a boost were specifically invited. It was decided to have a fourthgrade camp this summer because there is a slight transition from third grade, Razor said. “You’re a lot more independent as a learner,” she said.

NKY Wildcats claim top knothole prize

By James Weber

Casey Jones is going out on top as a knothole baseball head coach after six very successful years with the NKY Wildcats. Jones led the NKY Wildcats to the city championship in Division 1 earlier this month in Mason, Ohio. Division 1 is essentially “select” level knothole, with all of Greater Cincinnati combined in one class. The team went 31-1 this year. They were comprised of two players from Bellevue and 10 from Highlands Middle School. Many of them played freshman or junior varsity at their high schools this spring, with Dylan Huff starting varsity for Bellevue. “I had a great group of kids, coaches and parents. It was a perfect storm,” Jones said. “You list all the great teams that knothole has

ever had, you’ve got to include this group.” The Wildcats qualified for the city tournament final four all six years they were together, starting with Division 2, Class D in 2005. They won the city championship for the first time in 2008, winning Class C. They finished with a flourish in Division 1, outscoring their four tourney opponents 27-2. “We don’t keep stats, we don’t believe in that,” Jones said. “Our MVP trophies come in the form of team trophies. We did not promote the individual; we promoted the team. Highlands and Bellevue will benefit very much from this group.” Players are Andrew Abner, John Abner, Brian Dill, Grayson Heck, Luke Hennigan, Dylan Huff, Mitchell Jones, Joseph Martin, Brady Murray, Jacob Noe, Patrick Schoepf and Jake Whitford.

BRIEFLY Equine center unveiled

The Campbell Lodge Boys’ Home, a year-round residential facility dedicated to providing therapeutic guidance to pre-adolescent and adolescent boys, unveiled its new Equine Center to the public July 29 at 5161 Skyline Drive, Cold Spring. The Campbell Lodge Boys’ Home is the only children’s home in Northern Kentucky offering equine-assisted counseling to all residents.

For more information about the Campbell Lodge Boys’ Home and its new Equine Center, visit, Campbell Lodge Boys’ Home is a year-round residential facility for at-risk preadolescent and adolescent boys ages 10 to 18.

New group president

Denny Egan is the new president of Northern Kentucky University’s Norse Athletics Club, which is the booster group that supports NKU’s sports programs. Egan, who is the owner of Corporate Award Consultants in Florence, Ky., played on the first basketball team at thenNorthern Kentucky State College in 1971. He also was a member of the first baseball team at Northern during the 1971-72 season. Egan played three years of basketball for Northern and finished with 373 career points. He also averaged 6.2 rebounds per game during his three-year career. In Northern’s first-ever game on Nov. 12, 1971, Egan grabbed 21 rebounds and scored 16 points as the Norsemen rolled to a 109-65 victory against Calvary College. Egan earned a degree in business from Northern in 1974. He is married to Carla (nee Hardebeck) and their son, Rob, is a current student at NKU. The primary purpose of the Norse Athletics Club is to cultivate financial support and interest in NKU athletics. The NAC strives to continue the growing tradition on the NKU campus by assisting student-athletes in achieving academic and athletic success. Additional revenue is needed to help support the athletic budget in areas of recruitment, scholarships and facilities.

adds new assistant coach

Northern Kentucky University men’s basketball head coach Dave Bezold has added former Norse standout Kevin Schappell to his staff for the upcoming season. Schappell, a four-year letterwinner for NKU from 2003-07, spent the past three years as an assistant coach at West Virginia University. The former Loveland High School standout also received his master’s degree from West Virginia. Schappell was a member of last season’s West Virginia coaching staff and helped the Mountaineers advance to the NCAA Division I Final Four. West Virginia earned berths in the NCAA Tournament each of Schappell’s three seasons as an assistant to head coach Bob Huggins. “Kevin knows our program about as well as any-

one, and he is a great addition to our coaching staff,” Bezold said. “He’s been at one of the elite basketball programs in Division I the past three years, so he’s also going to bring that experience here to NKU and give us a different perspective on many things.” While a player at NKU, Schappell scored 868 career points. He was named honorable mention All-Great Lakes Valley Conference during the 2005-06 season. As a senior in 2006-07, Schappell played a key role during NKU’s run to the NCAA Division II Great Lakes Region championship game. The Norse knocked off top-seeded Findlay in the regional semifinals of that tournament, ending the nation’s longest home winning streak at 59 consecutive games.

Area teams headline Soccerama

Ryle High School will be the host of 2010 girls’ soccer Soccerama exhibition series. Eleven matches will be played from Thursday, Aug. 12, through Saturday, Aug. 14 at Clifford Borland, Sr. Stadium. The matches will feature 22 Northern Kentucky teams. At press time, there was a potential of adding another game with two additional teams. “We hope to have a very enjoyable tournament where all the teams have great weather and great sportsmanship,” Ryle girls’ head coach Edmundo Echeverria said. “I think it will be a great season this year. My goal is to get the teams everything they need.” Ryle hosted the boys’ Soccerama last year. John Horton, former Covington Catholic head coach and current Ryle teacher, organized that and gave a lot of help to the Raiders’ girls’ staff for this year’s event. Besides the soccer, Ryle is working to provide concessions, kids’ play areas, vendors and area businesses, and other community events. The marquee match looks to be on the first night, when two-time state champion Highlands meets recent upstart St. Henry, who lost to Notre Dame in the state round-of-16. Notre Dame, last year’s state runner-up, will play another local improving program in Campbell County. Campbell County and

The matches are a key prelude to the regular season, which begins Monday, Aug. 16. “We’re excited for the beginning of the season,” said Echeverria. “Once the season starts, we’re all over the place and this is the one event where we’re all together.” Tickets are $5 per session and $10 for all three.

What was your best summer job? Your worst? Why?’ “Worst - Putting in hay or cutting and housing tobacco. Hot, dirty and wasp nests were always present. Favorite - Retirement! I think the why is obvious.” G.G. “My favorite summer job was at a little man-made lake with a sand beach called ‘Tara Beach.’ I worked the concession stand. It was my first job (16 years old) and paid less than minimum wage. I worked six days a week – long days with very short breaks in a hot little building making burgers, grilled cheese, popcorn and sticky cotton candy. And I wouldn’t trade it for anything! I learned a sense of pride for working hard and earning my own money and saved almost all of my two summer’s worth of earnings to pay my first year’s college tuition.” J.K.T. “My best summer job was at a camp called Camp Nuhop. It was a camp for children with disabilities. It was located by Mohican State Park. I learned all kinds of skills pertaining to group control and positive discipline. “I went on to a career as a special educator going on 32 years now. The camp is still operating and I refer many students there.” K.S. “My best summer job was when I was between my junior and senior years in high school. I worked, along with my nephew, at the Easterly Sewage Plant in Cleveland, spreading gravel. It was also my worst summer job, since it’s the only summer job I ever held.” Bill B. “For the summer between high school graduation and college I landed a job as a temporary postal carrier. Besides it being a decent paying job, I got to be outdoors and meet lots of people all over Greater Cincinnati. It was also a transition for me since, for the first time in my life, adults treated me as an adult.” R.V. “My best summer job was the summer I was 16. A family I babysat for had a little boy who was 2. About 2 weeks before summer break his mom gave birth to twin girls. My summer job was going to their house Monday–Friday during the day to help with the kids. “Some days I was there with Michele and the kids, some days I would have one kid, two kids, or all 3 kids. I learned how to determine who was crying, why they were crying, and could tend to all three at the same time if need be. “This remained my summer job for the next couple of summers. I loved the job and those kids. It was so rewarding. And 16 years when my husband and I had twin boys I could not thank them enough for all great experience to hit the ground running.” T.S. “Worst summer job was working at Mr. Gatti’s Pizza on Beechmont (about 25 years ago). I worked mostly until closing, and after work I would drive to Dunkin’ Donuts and get two donuts for my ride home. “What I didn’t gain in work experience, I gained in weight!” L.D.B.






Next question How much of a difference will Terrell Owens make for the Bengals, both on the field and off the field? Send your answer to with Chatroom in the subject line. “My best summer job was working the tennis courts for the Cincinnati Recreation Commission at Withrow High School in the days when they had clay courts. It was hard work, but I met a lot of nice people, including a co-worker that I still keep in touch with today. I kept the courts in shape, daily treating them and restriping them to await the barrage of players that would come out even in the 90-plus degree heat. “My worst summer job would have to be when I was in high school and it was my job to pass out coupons for free RC and DietRite cola after the riots of 1968. It was hot, sticky work walking door to door making blind calls. Obviously people were skeptical, but gladly accepted free pop. If only life’s problems could be solved so ‘easily’ with free soft drinks.” R.L.H. “My favorite was working in a small grocery store in a little country town. It was enjoyable because I knew most of the customers and there were always interesting conversations about family, friends, etc.” B.N.

Last week’s question:


Living out your independence? Now that the Fourth of July has come and gone, are you living out your Independence? In health and wellness that is. So many of us treat a healthy lifestyle as a restrictive, controlling battle or virtual prison that threatens to rip away at our independence to “eat what I want, when I want!” Diets are too restrictive, you say. I don’t want to give up certain foods or eating out, you say. Here’s a newsflash: The healthy lifestyle isn’t the battle or “prison” we deem it to be. The prison is the high blood pressure, high cholesterol, 34 pills we take every day, regular doctor appointments to monitor all our health issues, anxiety and stress we chalk up to a busy lifestyle, not to mention the weight problem that prohibits us from going outside (or getting on the floor for that matter) and playing with our kids, grandkids, going to an amusement park or taking walks. It’s time to once again to reclaim our independence and freedom to live and enjoy a healthy lifestyle. • Did you know that losing just 10 percent of your weight drastically reduces your risks for certain diseases including some cancers and will most likely lower your blood pressure and cholesterol significantly? • Did you know that anxiety and stress are often lowered as well when a person loses weight? Why? Too often, theses issues are exacerbated by obesity: embar-

rassment about weight, frustrations regarding clothes and energy levels all work to increase stress and anxiety can be alleviated signifiJulie House cantly when a Community person loses as as 10 Recorder little pounds. guest • Did you columnist know that the summer season is the best (not worst) time to start living healthier? Why? It’s when the best of the best fruits and vegetables are in season and available at your local farmers market. With two farmers markets right here in Kenton County every week and several others in neighboring counties, its possible to visit a farmers market every day of the week and find the freshest, most colorful and incredibly healthy treats for your body. Bonus: We’re giving back to the local economy and saving the environment as well (produce doesn’t travel very far to get to the farmers market, so we’re reducing harm to the ozone, emissions). You get the point. Health and wellness is a freedom and independence we need to reclaim for ourselves and future generations. In the words of Earl Pitts (am I really old enough to remember him?) “Wake up America!” Farmers Market times:

“My one and only summer job was working at Kings Island its first and second season! Oh what fun. I enjoyed meeting all the guests that came to the park, plus other teen employees from different areas of Cincinnati – Anderson Township, Indian Hill, Wyoming, etc. Oh my gosh, not to mention that we got free admission to the park when we weren’t working.” C.A.S.

“My favorite summer job was working for the Cheviot Public Works Department in the early 1970s. Back then, I think it was called the Cheviot Maintenance Department. “My first summer I worked at the old Cheviot incinerator on South Road (pre EPA days). The garbage trucks would pull in, and I’d help rake the garbage into the incinerator. “I couldn’t believe some of the useable items people threw away. Now, they’d probaby go to a charity. Several items made it to my dorm room. “The second summer I drove around in a small dump truck picking up yard waste, old water heaters, etc. “It was hard work, but it gave me a good work ethic, a good paycheck for a college kid, and I got to work with a great group of guys.” S.R.S

On the morning of July 17, our small group consisting of nine students and nine adults from St. Mary School in Alexandria, cleaned the roadways along Alexandria Pike and Woeste Road. It took us approximately 90 minutes and we collected 26 bags of litter. Most of the litter was plastic soda bottles and fast food wrappers, but nothing out of the ordinary. We covered five miles and raised $500 for the Class of 2011 with the Trash for Cash Program, which is headed up by Campbell County Solid Waste. It is a great program, the kids had fun, got messy, but realized the work involved in cleaning up after inconsiderate people. A few would sometimes call out to passing cars, “Don’t litter!” Two thoughts I would like to share with the public: 1. Don’t litter, it’s disrespectful to your community and just plain being a slob, and;


Members of the group from St. Mary School in Alexandria who cleaned the roadways along Alexandria Pike. 2. When you see people in their neon vests cleaning the roadside, slow down please!

Robert Coble, owner of the Sears Hometown store in the Alexandria Village Green Shopping Center, inside his showroom filled with appliances, televisions, tools and lawn and garden equipment.

‘Hometown’ Sears makes space for customer service Robert Coble stocks his newly opened Sears Hometown Store in Alexandria with a little bit of everything the retailer sells. “The concept is to have a little bit of everything you need in the smaller towns,” Coble said. Located in the Alexandria Village Green Shopping Center, the store isn’t limited by its 6,000-square-feet of display space, Coble said. It’s typical for someone to order something from Sears’ almost 7-million item catalog of parts and retail items through the store and it will be delivered the next day, he said. Free shipping direct to a person’s home is often available within two or three days too, Coble said. The store opened without much fanfare June 24 as a way to make sure everything worked smoothly

before having any kind of grand opening, he said. Coble said a date hasn’t been scheduled, but there will be a grand opening before the end of August. Coble said customers have already been coming in to buy lawn and garden equipment especially because of several people busting their lawn mowers by hitting large rocks, he said. While it lasts, Coble said he can help customers apply for a $50 federal Energy Star rebate when they buy an eligible washer or refrigerator. “We can get the energy rebates for them for as long as they last,” he said. Store hours are 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Call 859-448-9800.

Art After Hours celebrates finale of summer reading program By Amanda Joering Alley

Adult patrons of the Campbell County Library enjoyed an evening of art, music and food at the third annual Art After Hours event. The event, held at the Fort Thomas branch of the library Friday, July 30, served as the finale to the adult summer reading program. Ryan Stacy, the library’s adult services librarian, said the event began at the Cold Spring branch in 2008. “It was such a success and went over so well, so we did it again in Newport last year,” Stacy said. “We are very happy to have the event in Fort Thomas this year.” The event featured music by the Lou Lausche Jazz Quartet, food and drinks from locals like Stonebrook Winery, Fantasy in Frosting and Lother’s Catering, and art from 14 different artists. Former Fort Thomas resident and artist Paula Risch Head displayed her oil landscapes at the event.

“I just love promoting art, and I think this event is a great way to promote local artists,” Head said. While the event was catered to adult patrons, one child, 11-year-old Paul Tully, was invited, not as a visitor, but as an artist. “I started finger painting when I was 1, and I really enjoyed it,” said Tully, who had his work on display at the event. “Now I use brushes, but it’s still a lot of fun.” Stacy said while the event shows off local artists, it also shows off what the library has to offer. “This event really draws attention to our summer reading program, which is getting bigger every year,” Stacy said. “It is always great to see the community come out and support the library.” The library’s summer reading program encourages patrons of all ages to read by offering incentives for reading books and attending library activities. For adults, these incentives include gift certificates to local stores and restaurants.

Here are ten rules for being human Father Lou is off this week. The Community Press is running a column that was orginally published Jan. 3, 2007.

1. You will receive a body. You may like it or dislike it, but it’s yours for life. Make friends with it, respect it, and listen to it. Your body always tells you many truths about yourself. 2. There are no mistakes, only lessons. You are made to grow, and growth is a process of trial and error, learning, and moving on. The pains of past failures are even more a teacher than the joys of gains and successes. Live and learn! 3. A lesson will be repeated until it is learned. Realize that

you cannot keep performing the same behavior and expect different results. Who, or whatever, hurts you and goes against your true growth, let go of and move on. Wise up! 4. The most important things in life are loving relationships. Your Creator’s initial advice was, “It is not good to be alone.” That was not advice against enjoying solitude but a warning about being unconnected and emotionally alone. Being in orbit around your own ego makes a mighty small world and a selfish person. Care about others! Learn to love! 5. Other people can serve as mirrors. The significant traits you like or despise about another per-

son frequently reflect something unconscious you like or despise about yourself - but which you find it hard to admit. Know thyself! 6. Whether it’s a place or a time of life, “there” is not always better than “here.” Too often the best seems to be happening “there.” But if you get “there” it then becomes a “here” and you will likely yearn for another “there” that seems better than “here.” Don’t always be living looking at a “there.” Always appreciate the “here,” the “now!” 7. Every human person has many aspects: body, soul, mind and heart. Leaving any part of yourself undeveloped produces a lop-sided and unfulfilled

person. To the extent that you develop all the parts of your humanness makes your life either a work of art or a blurred picture. Become more whole! 8. The most wonderful part of you lies deep within. It’s called “soul,” or “core,” or “true self.” It starts talking to you the loudest in the second half of your life. If you listen, it will impart wisdom, truths, and exquisite understanding you’ve never had before. If you don’t listen, you’ll miss the meaning of your life. Don’t be afraid to reflect! To listen! 9. You create your own climate. That’s because of the power of the thoughts you entertain, the attitudes you keep, the choices you make. Gripe and think nega-

tively and your life will always Father Lou be overcast and Guntzelman dark. Appreciate, and you’ll Perspectives start noticing the many good things you have. You get the emotional climate you develop. Why rain on yourself? 10. There are many “important” things in this life, and there are a few things that are really “essential.” Never, never exchange the essential for the important. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@ or P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242.

Be careful before purchasing appliance warranty I’m seeing more and more companies these days offering warranties that claim to cover all your home appliances. But, is it a good idea to sign up, or are you better off saving your money and just paying for repairs as needed? It’s not unusual to find a whole house appliance warranty offered by the seller when you looking to buy an existing house. Now some national firms, and even some local appliance repair shops, have begun offering this to all. Sherri Burton of Amelia received an ad from a national company for such a warranty for about $40 a

m o n t h and said it looked like a great deal. “ I f something w e n t r o n g Howard Ain w you were Hey Howard! to contact them and you got a claim number. I guess they subcontract. They would come out here. I would pay a $75 deductible,” said Burton. Soon after signing up she encountered a problem with her stove and called, but was very surprised at the response she received. “Bottom line, they didn’t

want to fix it. They just wanted to replace a knob and then, if something else went wrong, they’d have to come back here and fix it,” she said. Burton had to pay the $75 deductible but says she just went out and bought a new stove. Next, Burton’s furnace started making a lot of noise so she again called the warranty company. A repairman came out but, “He said as long as the furnace was running he can’t do anything. It has to not be running,” she said. The furnace then started overheating so she called again. “He turned the furnace

on and said, ‘As long as the furnace is running there’s nothing I can do.’ I said, ‘Would you like a Coke because after it kicks on the second or third time it’s going to overheat?’ Well, it did,” said Burton. Burton was then told the repairman couldn’t fix the furnace because he couldn’t get parts since it was too old. But now, in the warm summer weather, the air conditioner is also overheating so she can’t get her house cool. “I thought it was going to be a great company for $40 a month, $75 deductible,” said Burton. “It’s about saving me money, but appar-

ently it’s about making them money.” The company wouldn’t respond to my phone calls so I had Burton file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. The company has responded to complaints filed with the bureau. After Burton filed her complaint, the warranty company sent out another repairman to check the furnace. He found the problem was with the blower motor and it had to be replaced. Burton had to pay $500, but the new motor solved the problem. Now Burton is trying to get back that $500 from the warranty compa-

ny. The Better Business Bureau says it’s received about 700 complaints about this company from people who say the firm would not pay for needed repairs. In response, the company says consumers need to read the contract thoroughly and fully understand exactly what’s included and what’s excluded. Bottom line, you need to be very careful before agreeing to any of these warranties. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12. Write to him at 12 WKRC-TV, 1906 Highland Ave., Cincinnati 45219.

Rub shoulders with old-fashioned pork barbeque Our little flock of chickens has one less member today. And it’s my fault. L a s t Rita night, I Heikenfeld forgot to Rita’s kitchen lock the chickens in their pen. This morning, when I went out to feed them, I saw a trail of white feathers leading down to the river bank. Not a good sign – I immediately thought “raccoons.” And that’s how our only white feathered hen, “Whitey,” as the kids called her, met her untimely demise. So you can understand when I say I just don’t feel like sharing any recipes today for, you guessed it: chicken.

Pour dressing over cabbage mixture. Cover and refrigerate four hours or overnight. Stir before serving.

Tips from Rita’s garden


Rita clips the blooms off fresh basil to keep the plant focused on its leaves.

Rita’s do-ahead marinated slaw

This is delicious with the barbecue, and a bit different than the norm.


Combine and set aside while making dressing:

Easy pork shoulder for barbeque

There’s an old-fashioned type of meat that folks are starting to rediscover. It’s fresh pork shoulder (and when it’s smoked it’s sometimes called cottage ham or smoked pork butt). I use it to make goetta since it has a nice layer of fat which keeps the goetta moist. (See sidebar on Glier’s Goettafest.) I also use it to make barbeque. It’s so delicious that I’ll save some of the roasted pork to serve for supper before I make the barbecue,


Rita picking berries at her elderberry bush. and serve it with boiled noodles. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Score the fat on top of a boneless pork shoulder, about 5 to 7 pounds. Season with salt and pepper and place, fat side up, in a Dutch oven or roasting pan with about a cup of water. Roast until some of the fat has melted, about an hour. Remove pan and reduce


temperature to 350 degrees. Tightly cover pan with foil or a lid. Cook about three to four hours more, or until meat is tender enough to shred with forks. When cool enough to handle, remove fat if you want and shred meat into bite size pieces. This freezes well. To serve, stir in favorite barbecue sauce to taste, and heat until hot throughout.

6-8 cups shredded cabbage or cole slaw mix 2 carrots, sliced thin or shredded 1 bell pepper, chopped 1 cup onion, chopped


Bring to a boil, then simmer, uncovered, 10-15 minutes or so, until slightly thickened: 1 cup sugar 1 cup cider vinegar 1 ⁄2 cup water 2 teaspoons mustard seed (optional but good) or 1 ⁄2 teaspoon celery seed (also optional)

Harvesting basil: Be sure and snip the flower heads that are forming on basil. Otherwise, energy will go into the flowers and seeds, and leaf production will suffer. The flowers of all culinary herbs are edible. (I do let one plant go to seed for next year’s crop). Roasted whole plum tomatoes: These make a delicious sauce for pasta. You can also freeze them up to six months. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Toss tomatoes with a bit of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Lay in single layer on rimmed baking sheets. If you have some fresh thyme, tuck several sprigs in between the tomatoes. Bake until they burst, about 45 to 60 minutes, rotating pans halfway through. Let cool, then coarsely chop.

Can you help?

Salsa verde at Rincon Mexicano restaurant in Eastgate. For Denise Martinez. “I have tried several different recipes and can’t seem to duplicate the one at Rincon.” Applespice Junction’s chicken tortilla soup. For Amy. “I cannot figure out how to duplicate this chain restaurant’s soup.” She said


The 10th annual Glier’s Goettafest will be held Friday through Sunday, Aug. 6-8, at Newport’s Riverfront Levee, just down the steps from the Newport Aquarium. Look for the return of the popular Goetta Toss and the Goetta Slide games. Proceeds from the games will go to the Covington charity, Welcome House. Also be sure to check out for menu and entertainment listings. it has a little spice flavor, and thicker than other chicken tortilla soups. The Polo Grille’s corn and tomato salsa and Bravo!’s original focaccia bread and dipping oil. For Jane in Montgomery. She said the salsa looked pretty simple with roasted corn, tomatoes, garlic salt. “So good.” And about Bravo!’s focaccia, Jane said they changed their recipe and it’s not nearly as good as the original, which she thinks may have had mashed potatoes in it. Like Panera Bread’s black bean soup. For MaryAlice Staats, a Forest Hills Journal reader. “There are a couple in some of my cookbooks but none that compare with theirs. Any help would be appreciated.” Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. E-mail columns@community with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line. Call 513-2487130, ext. 356.
