Party lines no obstacle in JOP debate

By Chris Mayhew

The ballot measure asking voters in November if they want to switch the format of their county government representation has been drawing fire from both Republicans and Democrats. Lloyd Rogers of Alexandria and Tim Nolan of California are among the leaders of the idea of switching to a Justice of the Peace/magistrate form of county government with eight magistrates elected from among their districts. Rogers said they’re calling their campaign group the “Committee to Restore Good Government” with the website of If voters decide to switch in November, it would not take effect until 2014. The current commissioner system with three representatives picked by voters throughout the county, has been in place since 1918. Both forms of Fiscal Court governments have a Judge-executive spot at the top.

Kevin Sell, who lost the Republican nomination for Judge-executive to Steve Pendery in the May primary election, has been trading anti-magistrate system e-mails with Lloyd Rogers and a host of other recipients that make up a who’s who of Campbell County politics. Sell said the change to a magistrate system has implifications for the Republican party in the November election, including being a distraction and draining resources from some candidates. There is an opportunity to elect two new Republican commissioners and a Republican county attorney to serve on the Fiscal Court, Sell said in one of his e-mails to Rogers. Rogers said there is a chance that in this year or in any election year that Republicans won’t be elected to the Fiscal Court, and the justice of the peace/magistrate system guarantees at least some representation for the southern part of the county. Having eight justices of the peace/magistrates will make it harder to pass any tax increases by

creating “gridlock,” Rogers said. Sell said the switch will probably create gridlock in county government, and that’s not necessarily a good thing. “All eight of these justices will only be concerned about their little piece of our county, and nothing will be accomplished on the whole,” said Sell in an e-mail. And while not part of the e-mail exchanges between Sell and Rogers, Democratic Commissioners Ken Rechtin and Dave Otto have both taken public stances against the idea of switching government styles and have said it will create a more parochial representation that doesn’t look out for the needs of the county as a whole. Rechtin, who is unopposed in the November election, said he’ll stand by whatever the voters decide, but he doesn’t think it works even with Rogers’ argument that the southern part of the county will gain better representation. The argument is that all of the current commissioners live north of I-275, Rechtin said.

Rechtin, of Newport, said it wouldn’t make a difference to him in how he would vote based on whether it’s a justice of the peace/magistrate or commissioner form of government.

Arguments in the case of Cold Spring vs. Sanitation District No. 1 of Northern Kentucky have begun. Cold Spring sued SD1 in April 2009 alleging breach of contract because the agency will not take over all storm sewer infrastructure in the city and therefore didn’t have the authority to charge storm water fees it has collected from residents. The city is declining to transfer responsibility of the city’s storm sewers to SD1 because of the agency’s position on what it will and will not maintain. Campbell Circuit Court Judge Julie Reinhardt Ward questioned the lawyers representing both sides for an hour Wednesday, Aug. 11. The case is headed for a jury trial unless Judge Ward determines one side or the other is entitled to a summary judgment. SD1 has agreed to take over all underground pipes and infrastructure, said Mark Hayden, an attorney with Greenbaum Doll &

McDonald in Cincinnati, who is lead counsel for SD1. Storm water collection devices such as above ground catch basins will be taken over by SD1 eventually, but there currently isn’t enough money from the fees collected to financially take it all over, Hayden said. It’s not a case that SD1 won’t take it all over eventually, he said. “Just not right now,” Hayden said. The consensus now is to take the underground pipes over and then work out a schedule to of when to take the rest, he said. Brandon Voelker, attorney for the City of Cold Spring, said if SD1 is going to charge a fee it must take over the entire storm water collection system. The city is still responsible if something happens with regards to culverts and catch basins regardless of whether the storm sewer system is transferred by the city to SD1, he said. There is another case already in Circuit Court dealing with an issue of pipes not being able to hold

storm water that’s collected. “At some point what happens when that water wipes out someone’s backyard?” said Voelker “You’re (meaning the city) on the hook.” It’s Cold Spring’s position of either “you take it all, or we’re out,” Voelker said. Other parts of the Aug. 11 oral arguments centered on whether Cold Spring legally has the option to decide to opt out of its existing interlocal agreement with SD1. Cold Spring Council approved a resolution, at special Monday, Aug. 16 meeting, definitively saying they want out of the interlocal agreement unless SD1 meets the city’s terms. Voelker said he will file an amended complaint saying the city “wants out.” Ward is working to schedule a hearing in September to hear from SD1 experts about how storm water does and does not interact with sanitary sewer and how SD1 is using the money already collected for storm sewers.

Southgate is using its city-wide yard sale to do more than just get rid of unwanted items. Two local charities, the Brighton Center and St. Vincent de Paul, will also be benefiting from the sale, which is from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 11. In order to receive a permit and be included on the city’s list of sale locations, residents have to donate a non-perishable food item instead of paying a fee, said City Clerk Jody Anderson. The food will City-wide sale then be donated to the Brighton 8 a.m. to 6 Center. p.m. Saturday, “We did the Sept. 11. food donations during our sale last year and it went well,” Anderson said. “We probably had a whole truckload of food by the end.” The idea to collect the food was brought up by a resident last year, said Mayor Jim Hamberg. “It was a great idea,” Hamberg said. “We thought it would be a good way to pull the city together in a collaborative effort.” As an added benefit this year, Anderson said the city will have a St. Vincent de Paul truck at the city building for people to drop off anything they didn’t sell and don’t want to keep. The truck will be available for drop-offs until 8 p.m. the night of the sale. Hamberg said he is happy to see the city helping both of the charities involved. “These are really good charities for us to get involved with,” Hamberg said. “They both help all the cities in the area, including Southgate, and this is a good way for us to give back.” A list of sale location will be available at the city building, 122 Electric Ave., the day of the sale.

Constable faces lawsuit seeking his removal By Chris Mayhew

A civil lawsuit alleging that Constable Nicholas J. Wilson lives outside of the district he is elected from and that he has committed welfare fraud has been filed in Campbell Circuit Court. The lawsuit, filed by Christine M. Grome of Southgate, seeks to have

Wilson’s name removed from the Nov. 2 ballot as the Democratic candidate for District 3 constable, the position he currently serves in. Wilson, a Democrat, is slated to face Republican Cameron Tracy Alexander of Newport, for the constable post this year. The complaint against Wilson alleges he has not been living in Newport

State law mandates a constable must live in their district. Wilson said he had no comment on the matter. The filer of the lawsuit, Christine Grome, lives in Constable District 3, and attempts to reach Grome were unsuccessful. Grome’s attorney for the case, Brandon N. Voelker of Gatlin Voelker Attorneys at Law in Cold Spring, said Grome is a concerned citizen. “She just believes that government officials should be held to a higher stan-

dard,” Voelker said of Grome. Voelker said it’s inexcusable that Wilson is living outside of his district, and on top of that is making a sizeable amount of money from serving civil court papers like summons while collecting welfare. The complaint filed by Grome included copies of checks Wilson allegedly received as part of his work for constable in the amount of $240 for three dates in April, and also a copy of an alleged application for state welfare benefits claiming Wilson’s gross income was $151. The complaint filed by Grome also included a copy of another court case, a petition for divorce between Wilson and his wife. The divorce petition, filed in Campbell Circuit Court, lists Wilson’s address since 2008

Politics surround case

The same information about Constable Nick Wilson contained in a complaint filed in Campbell Circuit Court Aug. 11 had previously been provided to the county attorney’s office, but no action has been taken, said attorney Brandon Voelker after filing the complaint against Wilson. “If an elected official is doing something wrong, as county attorney he should step up and prosecute,” Voelker said. Campbell County Attorney James Daley said the information about Wilson living outside of his district was received and was forwarded on to the Commonwealth Attorney Michelle Snodgrass’ office for possible prosecution. Except for initial arraignments, the Commonwealth Attorney’s office typically handles felonies, Daley said. Voelker said Daley’s own website for re-election includes a section that the county attorney’s office may prosecute felonies in some instances. Daley, a Democrat, said Voelker, a Republican, is trying to politicize the matter. Voelker has given money to the campaign of Daley’s Republican opponent Steve Franzen in the race for county attorney for the November election. “Voelker’s allegations are nothing more than a partisan political stunt at the expense of the citizens of Campbell County,” said Daley in an e-mailed statement about the matter. Daley said in the statement that he’s been involved in criminal law for 30 years, and he stands by a record of fairness and firm, swift prosecution of cases. “Our office takes fraud and all crime very seriously, and we vigorously prosecute those who try to take advantage of taxpayers’ money,” Daley continued in the statement. “No person is above the law and will never be as long as I’m county attorney.” as being in Alexandria. Wilson was arrested in Alexandria June 1 and charged with fourth degree assault domestic violence, a Class A misdemeanor.

Campbell County Attorney James Daley said the case was dismissed without prejudice by an order agreed to by both parties in the case.

Political dramas unfold among filings By Chris Mayhew


Prescription drug disposal

The Campbell County Police Department’s lobby at 8774 Constable Drive, Alexandria, is the location of a secure drop-off box for unwanted and outdated prescription drugs. The drop box is for all residents of Campbell County and is sponsored by the police department, the Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force and Sanitation District No. 1 of Northern Kentucky. The drop-off box is available when the police station’s lobby is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The Aug. 10 filing deadline to be on the ballot in November for candidates seeking many local offices revealed a slew of crowded races, and deadline surprises including no competition for several elected offices. With the job of Cold Spring mayor up for election in November, Nancy Bay of Cold Spring, waited until the last hour before the Aug. 10 filing deadline to make it a contested race. Bay, who retired as finance secretary from Cold Spring in January 2009 after 15 years working with the city, will face incumbent mayor Mark Stoeber in November. Stoeber was first elected as mayor in 2002. “I can be a hands-on mayor, the fact that I am retired, I can be there during the day,” Bay said. Bay said she thinks the city needs a change with a mayor who will be available during the day to residents and businesses. “I just feel there needs to be a lot more one-on-one with businesses and residents,” she said. The filing deadline also revealed a crowded field of council candidates in several cities. In each city, there are six council spots up for election. In Alexandria 10 council candidates filed for election, Cold Spring has nine council candidates, and Highland

With the job of Cold Spring mayor up for election in November, Nancy Bay of Cold Spring, waited until the last hour before the Aug. 10 filing deadline to make it a contested race. Heights has eight candidates. In Wilder there are six candidates for six spots. The field of candidates seeking elected offices in the city governments of Bellevue, Dayton, Fort Thomas and Newport was set by the Jan. 26 primary election filing deadline. In the smaller cities of Mentor and Crestview there were no candidates for the city commissions, which elect four people. Crestview did receive a candidate for mayor, current commission member C.J. Peters. It’s not uncommon in some of the smaller cities for candidates to wait until the write-in deadline to file, said Jennifer McGrath, an employee in the Campbell County Clerk’s elections office. The last day to file to be a write-in is Oct. 22, McGrath said. If nobody files as a write-in, the current council or commission can appoint people, she said. The two candidates who filed for the two Campbell County School Dis-

trict Board of Education seats will be unchallended except for any write-in candidates. Incumbent board member Janis Winbigler of Wilder, didn’t garner a challenger for her District 1 seat and the only candidate to file for the District 4 board seat was Patrick “Pat” J. Walch of Alexandria, who unsucessfully challenged board member Mike Combs for the seat in 2006. Combs lost to Brian Painter in this year’s May primary for the Republican candidate for Campbell County Commissioner District 1. Combs, a member of the board for eight years, was eligible to run for reelection on school board, but opted against it. Combs said he feels he’s expressed his message of being an advocate to challenge for change when it was in the best interest of the students. “When I came on the board there was a real comfort level to the status quo,” Combs said. “Too much comfort level.” For now, Combs said he wants to focus his efforts on business opportunities. “My decision to not continue with the school board is nothing more than a change in a real business opportunity and expansion possibility over the next few years,” he said.

Group endorses regional smoking ban By Paul McKibben

Northern Kentucky Action, a prosmoking ban group, has endorsed a draft of a proposed Northern Kentucky smoking ordinance. “The coalition is pleased with the comprehensive nature of the proposed ordinance and would be in support of this ordinance, should it be the draft that is eventually considered by the Northern Kentucky fiscal courts,” the group said in a statement released Aug. 11. The Boone County Fiscal Court announced on July 30 that it was withdrawing from talks with Campbell and Kenton counties on the

regional ban. Campbell County Judge-executive Steve Pendery and Kenton County Judge-executive Ralph Drees indicated last month that they each had three of four votes on their respective fiscal courts to pass a ban. The April 29 draft, obtained by The Enquirer and posted on, includes these provisions: • Prohibits smoking in public buildings and places of employment • Residences are exempted but the exception doesn’t apply when the residence is used as a licensed child care, adult day care or health care facility • Private clubs but the exception

doesn’t apply when the private club is used for a function when the general public is invited • Bans smoking within a reasonable distance from an outside entrance to a public building • Persons who smoke in an area where smoking is banned and who refuse to stop smoking will be asked to leave and could be prosecuted for criminal trespass if they don’t leave. The Northern Kentucky Independent District Health Department would enforce the ban. Violators would face fines ($100 for the first offense, $250 for the second offense within a year and $500 for subsequent offenses within in a year). Northern Kentucky Action said it

continues to advocate for a comprehensive ordinance that protects workers and citizens in Northern Kentucky. The organization includes the American Heart Association, the American Cancer Society, the American Lung Association, the health department, the Kentucky Center for Smoke-Free Policy, St. Elizabeth Healthcare, Northern Kentucky Clean Indoor Air Collaborative, Kenton County Alliance and citizens. Supporters of the ban point to the health risks associated with inhaling secondhand smoke. Opponents have argued that businesses should have the right to allow smoking.

OKI awards more than $12 million for N.Ky. projects The Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI) announced that more than $12 million will be allocated for six highway and transit projects in Northern Kentucky. “These projects are essential in the ongoing development of a comprehensive transportation system for our region,” said OKI Board President and Campbell County Judgeexecutive Steve Pendery.


“They make vital improvements in the region’s transportation network for our commuting population.” The funds were allocated through the Surface Transportation Program for Northern Kentucky (SNK). Funding was exclusive to Boone, Campbell, and Kenton counties in Kentucky. A total of $12.1 million in SNK funding was provided to six projects in OKI’s three Kentucky counties. These

projects will play an important role in transit and highway safety and include: • Boone County, South Airfield Road – new connector road between Burlington Pike (KY 18) and Turfway Road, funding awarded: $3 million. • Boone County, KY 237 – reconstruction from Conner Drive to Medical Arts Drive, funding awarded: $4.9 million. • Campbell County, Carothers Road – reconstruction and sight distance improvements, funding awarded: $1.5 million. • Campbell County, New Transit Intermodal Facility on block bounded by East 4th, East 5th, Monmouth and

York streets in Newport, funding awarded: $1.3 million. • Kenton County, Dudley Road and Thomas More Drive Edgewood – upgrades of eight traffic and pedestrian signals in Edgewood, funding awarded: $50,960. • Kenton County, Dudley Road – reconstruction from Winding Trails Drive to Dixie Highway, funding awarded: $1.2 million.

“These projects continue our efforts to address traffic problems and limit the negative effect of congestion,” said OKI Executive Director Mark Policinski. “It is

imperative that we continue to improve our transportation system to allow us to remain an economically competitive region.” OKI is a council of local governments, business organizations and community to developing collaborative strategies, plans and programs to improve the quality of life and the economic development potential of the Tri-State.

Fourteen of Northern Kentucky’s 22 public high schools raised their composite ACT scores in 2010, with Silver Grove School showing the most significant improvement over 2009. The data was released Thursday by the Kentucky Department of Education. The assessment, given by law to all of the state’s juniors (44,390 in 2010) each spring since 2008, gives an indication of how collegeready they are in math, reading, English and science. Kentucky was one of seven states this past school year to mandate that all public school juniors take the test. The others are Wyoming, North Dakota, Tennessee, Michigan, Illinois and Colorado. The highest possible ACT score is 36. The national average score in 2009 was 21.1. Sixteen Northern Kentucky schools this past spring matched or beat the 2010 state composite score of 18.5, which was up from 18.2 in 2009. Silver Grove jumped 2.4 points, from 16.1 to 18.5. Ken Ellis, the new superin-

Teachers also focused more on the ACT in their core classes during those 12 weeks. “The teachers said that’s all they did differently (from the previous year), so we’re going to keep doing it,” Ellis said. “And now they’ve set the bar for our current junior class.” Grant County and Gallatin County high schools also increased significantly, 1.1 and 1.0 higher, respectively. Scott High School in the Kenton County School District increased 0.8. Four schools raised scores 0.7, including Campbell County High School. “For us, I think it goes back to the emphasis by our staff to improve instruction,” said Campbell County Superintendent Anthony Strong. Beechwood High School dropped from 25 to 24.3,

N. Ky. counties meet ozone standard Recently the federal Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) published in the Federal Register that Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties have been redesignated as attaining the 1997 eight-hour federal air quality standard for ozone pollution of 0.08 ppm. On Jan. 29 the state Division for Air Quality (DAQ) submitted a request for the U.S. EPA to recognize Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties as meeting the health-based standard.


“This redesignation of attainment clearly demonstrates what can happen when state and local governments, along with industry, work together and bring about a positive solution for everyone,” said DAQ division director John Lyons. Boone, Campbell, and Kenton counties have been out of compliance with the standard for a number of years, primarily due to monitored violations in Warren County, Ohio. The Northern Kentucky counties were considered to be partly

responsible for the region’s air quality problems and were included in the 1997 Ohio/Kentucky/Indiana Metropolitan Statistical Area (OHKY-IN MSA) designation. Ohio and Indiana counties linked to the OH-KY-IN MSA have gone through this review process and those counties also have been given final designation as attaining the federal standard. Ozone is a colorless, odorless gas that is formed when emissions from a wide variety of source.

Highlands High School in Fort Thomas Independent Schools was ranked third in the state with a 23.1, an increase of 0.4. The biggest point drop in Northern Kentucky was at Ludlow High School, from 20.1 to 18.5. Dayton High School had the lowest score in Northern Kentucky at 15.9, a drop from 2009 of 0.8. Patty Patterson, assistant superintendent in Dayton, said last year was the first year for new principal Rick Wolf, and the first year the school instituted assessments given during the year to better prepare students for the ACT. She expects better results will be seen this second year. “We also had a training session (last week) for teachers on strategies to help students take the ACT,” Patterson said.

Before the learning starts it’s play time By Chris Mayhew

At Grant’s Lick Elementary School before the start of classes each August the community throws a party. Called Party on the Playground, the event is as much about getting to see old friends again as it is about students meeting their teachers, said Principal Amy Razor. “I think the point of our open house is that kids can be with our teachers, but everybody gets together and it’s a community event,” Razor said. People linger, even bringing CHRIS MAYHEW/STAFF

each year especially because it’s fun and she likes the school “because the teachers are nice.” Lauren’s mother Dee Daughterty said her daughter especially likes that Grant’s Lick is a small school and she knows all her classmates. Beth Kramer’s 5-year-old son Brady is starting first grade at Grant’s Lick after going to preschool elsewhere last year. The open house and party is a good way not only to meet the staff and find out what’s going on at school, but also to make friends, she said. “This is nice, the kids get to see their classmates,” Kramer said.

Grandview’s Redifest helps parents, students and staff get ready for school By Amanda Joering Alley Students, parents, faculty and staff at Grandview Elementary School are getting ready for another school year. At Redifest, Thursday, Aug. 12, parents got a chance to meet their childrens’ teachers, get important information and learn about what the school and various community organization have to offer. “This is just a great event for everyone to come out and get to

know each other,” said Principal Candice Simpkins. “It makes it easier that we are a walking community because it’s not a hardship for the families to get here.” Along with parents and students getting to check the class lists and getting information about programs, the event also helps the school staff, said Rob Sanders, director of the school’s Family Resource Center. “This event gives parents a chance to get their paperwork filled out, which really helps us because we have everything we

need the first day of school and don’t have to chase it down,” Sanders said. “This event just gets the ball rolling so when the kids come the first day, they’re ready to go.” Simpkins said she also uses Redifest to spread the word that the school uses grant money to buy all the students’ school supplies, meaning parents don’t have to buy anything. Students get there supplies the first day of school, Simpkins said. Classes at Grandview begin Wednesday, Aug. 18.

Sixth-graders prep for ‘big school’ pace By Chris Mayhew

Wandering the halls of a new school and trying to open a combination lock happens before the start of classes at Campbell County Middle School for new sixth-graders each summer. Known as Camp Camel, the day-long camp covers everything from dress code dos and don’ts fashion show and bully prevention to proper study skills, talking with teachers. There was also a dance lesson and a “Survivor” scavenger hunt to learn how to navigate the school’s three floors. The Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road operates the day-camp each year in cooperation with the middle school each year. Students shuffled through eight different sessions to acclimate to middle school life. This year’s camp attracted 310 students starting sixth grade, said Terri Straub, who runs the camp and works for the Girl Scouts. Sam Steele, 11, of Alexandria, said she practiced working a combination lock five times during the camp and that she’ll have to work on it more to get quicker at opening her locker. “I finally understand the locks,” Steele said with a brimming smile. Steele said she thinks the biggest challenge to transitioning from Campbell Ridge Elementary School to middle school will be walking

Steele, along with two other new sixth-graders Jaime Styer and Lila Willis, also of Alexandria, wound their way through the school looking for learning stations set up for them in the “Survivor” scavenger hunt game. They found the library with ease, but passed the art teacher’s room at least once before finding it, and they had to come back for directions to help them find the school’s “old gym.” The goal of the “Survivor” game was to make it harder than most students could accomplish in the time

allotted so they have to really focus on learning where things are, Straub said. “The object of this game is that everyone in your Hula Hoop knows where everything is in this building,” she said to the students before sending them touring the building. Straub selected six students for a fashion show after lunch to point out what is and isn’t permissible under the school’s dress code. The students also received a folder including a copy of the dress code. For example, sleeveless shirts and open-toed shoes aren’t permissible, but

shorts that come to the knees are from the first day of school (Aug. 18) to Sept. 30 and again from May 1 to the last day of classes. “The fashion show is about the dress code so you know what you can and cannot wear here,” Straub said. Ava McDaniel, 10, of Alexandria, said there’s a lot to learn in making the transition to middle school and she’s going to have to create a routine so she can make it through the first few weeks. McDaniel said a routine will especially help her figure out how she can get between classes and her locker on time until every-

Ky. named Race to the Top finalist Gov. Steve Beshear, Education Commissioner Terry Holliday and congressional members announced that Kentucky is among the finalists for the second round of federal Race to the Top funding, a pot of more than $3.3 billion from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to be used for education reform. Race to the Top is a $4.35 billion competitive grant program, designed to reward states that are improving schools. “We are thrilled to once again see Kentucky in the list of finalists for Race to the Top funding,” Beshear said. “Kentucky has shown repeatedly that it is a leader in education reform, and our selection reflects the high quality of our application and reinforces the validity of the work we are engaging in

for Kentucky’s children.” Kentucky has multiple education reform efforts underway, including the Transforming Education in Kentucky and Early Childhood Development and Education task forces and the Graduate Kentucky Initiative, as well as implementation of SB1. “I’m very excited that Kentucky has been named a finalist in the second round of the Race to the Top funding competition,” Holliday said. “Our application is strong, and the feedback we received from the first round helped us improve our plan. I’m optimistic about our chances in this round; however, this application represents not only our plans related to Race to the Top, but our strategic priorities in the coming years.” The next step is to pre-

pare to defend the application to a panel of reviewers in Washington, D.C. who will make the final decisions on winners. The U.S. Department of Education will announce the second round of “Race to the Top” awards in the fall of 2010. “This announcement is further proof that Kentucky is continuing to make great strides toward improving the quality of education our children receive,” said Congressman John Yarmuth, of Kentucky’s 3rd district.

Dayton student part of firstgeneration scholars program at UK When Anthony Cadle steps onto the University of Kentucky campus in August, he will become the first person in his family to go to college. “It was just the fact that whatever I wanted to do, I wanted to be the best at it,� said Cadle, who plans to study economics at UK. “I figured the best way to do that would be to get a college education.� The recent Dayton High School graduate will join 19 other first-generation college students as a Suder Scholar in UK’s new First Scholars program. The program, launched with a $1.1 million grant from the Texas-based Suder Foundation, aims to raise graduation rates among students whose parents have no education beyond high school. It provides each student with a partial scholarship, peer mentoring, additional academic support and campus involvement activities to help them stay in school

and graduate. According to First Scholars Program Director Matthew Deffendall, this extra support is exactly what first-generation students need. “One of the things in my research that has stuck with me is that if you remove all other factors - socioeconomic, gender, ethnicity - just the fact that a student is a first-generation puts that student at risk,� Deffendall said. “The research shows that first-generation students lack the ‘college student role’ - the knowledge of how to make it in the system. They are missing that skill set and support mechanism.� First-generation college students, who represent one in five incoming UK freshmen, lag behind the general college population in graduation and retention rates. Of the class that entered in 2006, the first year such data was collected at UK, 59 percent of first-generation college students were still at

UK in their third year, compared to more than 68 percent of the general student population. In a U.S. Department of Education study, only 24 percent of first-generation college students ultimately earned a bachelor’s degree, compared to 68 percent of students whose parents were college graduates. “If a student runs into adversity, who do they turn to? Friends and family,� Deffendall said. “But a firstgeneration student’s parents don’t have that knowledge. They may not understand why the student has to spend so much time at the library, why they can’t come home every weekend, why they can’t come babysit their brother. If the student has a problem at school, rather than say, ‘Go talk to your professor,’ the parent might say, ‘Well, maybe you should just come on home.’� The First Scholar program will pair each

Suder Scholar with a peer mentor, an upperclassman who is also a first-generation student. Junior business major Samantha Farmer will serve as one of the mentors. She recalls her own first days at UK when considering advice she’ll give to new students. “Probably one of my biggest challenges was meeting people, stepping out of my home space and going to such a big school,� said Farmer. “I would tell them to introduce themselves to whoever they’re sitting next to in class. The classes are mostly freshmen, so everyone is in the same boat. They’re probably looking for a friend, too.� Farmer said she’ll also advise the Suder Scholars to take good notes and ask their professors questions. “Go to your professor’s office hours - that’s what they’re for,� she said. “A lot of people don’t take advantage of that.� This extra support is what Eric Suder envisioned when his foundation singled out first-generation students for the grant. “First generation defines the kind of person I want to reach,� he said. “If you have a parent who may not have finished high school, you’ve had very little grooming, very little preparation. Just to have these students apply and be accepted is a huge step.� Suder wants the First

Early Childhood Center earns national accreditation The Northern Kentucky University Early Childhood Center has earned accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the nation’s leading organization of early childhood education and care. “NAEYC accreditation is the best of the best when it comes to quality in early childhood programs,” said Melanie Caldwell, director of the center. “It’s hard work and takes a commitment from the staff and the families, the university and members of the community, but it makes achieving the goal all the more satisfying.” The Early Childhood Center went through an extensive self-study process, which measured the program and its services against 10 NAEYC early childhood program standards and more than 400 related accreditation criteria in order to attain accreditation. The program received NAEYC accreditation after

NAEYC assessors made a site visit, reviewing classroom and program portfolios to ensure that the program met all standards consistently. NAEYC accredited programs are also subject to unannounced visits over the course of five years during the accreditation process. “We’re proud to have earned the mark of quality from NAEYC,” Caldwell said, “and to be recognized for our commitment to reaching the highest professional standards. NAEYC accreditation lets families in our community know that children in our program are getting the best care and early learning experiences possible.” In the 23 years since NAEYC accreditation was established, it has become a widely recognized sign of high-quality early childhood education. Nearly 8,000 programs, serving one million young children, are currently accredited by NAEYC. Approximately 8 percent of all preschools and other

early childhood programs are accredited. The NKU program is one of just four programs to have earned this honor in northern Kentucky. “The NAEYC accreditation system raises the bar for preschools, child care centers and other early childhood programs,” said Dr. Mark Ginsberg, executive director of NAEYC. “NAEYC accreditation at the Early Childhood Center at NKU is a sign that they are a leader in a national effort to invest in high-quality early childhood education, and to help give all children a better start.” The NAEYC accreditation system was created to set professional standards for early childhood education and to help families identify high-quality preschools, child care centers and other early education programs. These standards reflect the latest research and best practices in early childhood education and development. Caldwell said that attain-

ing NAEYC accreditation also supports the Vision 2015 Northern Kentucky planning initiative. One of the six Vision 2015 strategic focus areas is educational excellence, which focuses on preparing children and adults to compete in the global economy and to promote talent and innovation.

Chamber links colleges, employers Across the nation, college graduates are entering the workforce during what has been called one of the toughest job markets of this generation, according to a study by the Economic Policy Institute. The National Center for Education Statistics says that there are 2.4 million students set to graduate with bachelor and associate degree this year. Across the country local papers are filled with reports of new college graduates not being able to get jobs in their fields. To address this challenge, the Northern Kentucky Chamber has

designed a program that streamlines this connection for both colleges and regional employers who are seeking talent. Through the College Connect network and the Growing Local Talent series, programs are organized that allow local employers to share their story as a way to recruit and create awareness among the college population, letting students know that they don’t need to leave our region to find great opportunities after graduation. Most recently, three area employers – including Citi, St. Elizabeth Healthcare and TiER 1 Performance Solutions – welcomed the oppor-

The current of life today is not kind to us When we’re young we dream about how we’re going to change the world. When we grow older we find it’s hard enough trying to keep the world from changing us. There is an inexorable current in life that swirls and rubs against us as it flows. Like water running over a solid rock, it can wear us down, a little bit here, a little bit there. Our positive ideals and dreams can be gradually worn away until we become disfigured and not at all as we intended. Life’s current that flows against us today is certainly not kind to us. Nor is it designed to form us in healthy ways. It has become more coarse, violent and self-centered. Our civilization is losing its civility. A symbol of today’s harshness can be found in the extreme fight-

ing sports. Participants punch, kick and bloodily pound each other as the a u d i e n c e applauds. For a moment we can imagine we’re Father Lou back watching Guntzelman the brutality of Perspectives the Roman coliseum! Television, newspapers and movies show us homeless people beaten with baseball bats, women being stoned to death for adultery, children murdered, our young children murdered, the Taliban seizes 10 unarmed people dedicated for years to helping the poor and sick, marches them into the woods and shoots them down. Do we experience shock or revulsion?

Or are we inured to life’s pitiless current? There seems to be a constant dumbing down of the finer things of life. Our country, formerly in the first place in the world in the percentage of those gaining college degrees, has now fallen to 12th place over the last 30 years. “Spend more money and we’ll be back as No. 1,” we think. Really? Spending more money accomplishes everything? Does spending money create civility? Right now we’re practicing denial. Who wants to hear that the sky is falling, that drugs are spreading, and that the food we thought was good for us isn’t? We don’t want to hear it. So, we live as though it isn’t true. Mental health experts urge us to be more proactive. Sometimes we must learn how to swim

upstream to reroute the current of life that is diminishing us. We have so many good things to protect, preserve and enjoy – the people we love and who love us; more opportunities than we realize; good books, music, art and athletics to uplift and inspire; and a spirituality that brings inner peace. In the fading days of the Roman Empire the leaders of the people thought that “bread and circuses” were the political solution. They would divert the common people from realizing the disintegration of their country. Hopefully, we’re not ready for our fading days yet. It’s time to use the adult and insightful minds we’ve been given to keep from losing all our youthful dreams. G.K. Chesterton wrote: “There is a kind of work which anyone

can do, but from which many people shrink, generally because it is very hard work, and sometimes because they fear it will lead them where they do not wish to go. It is called thinking.” It is hard to fight a current. Sometimes we talk a good game but really don’t want to expend the effort to go where our hearts and minds tell us we must go. Chesterton’s quote calls us to think. See what’s happening to us. Then adopt the motto of the City of Blue Ash that has worked so well: “Aspire! Achieve! Advance!” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@community or P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242.

Don’t skip the Skype when traveling overseas Traveling overseas can be quite expensive, especially when you consider the exchange rate with the U.S. dollar. So I thought I’d share some of the best ways I found to get cash in the local currency, as well as to make calls back to the U.S. without breaking the bank. It used to be the best way to get cash while overseas was to go to a local ATM and get the local currency. That gives you the best currency exchange rate and it’s less expensive than going to a money exchange store.

B u t now many l o c a l b a n k s h a v e started charging a 3 percent converHoward Ain sion fee to Hey Howard! use a foreign ATM, just as happens with most credit cards when you use them outside the country. But there’s a way you can avoid all these conversion fees. All it takes a little planning. Institutions like Union Savings Bank offer an ATM card but don’t

charge any fees at all. Officials there tell me you may have to pay a fee imposed by the ATM you use, but Union Savings won’t charge anything. So, allow a few days to set up a checking account at a conversion-free bank and get an ATM card there before your trip. Most credit cards also charge a conversion fee ranging from 2.7 percent to 3 percent, depending on the card you use. However, cards issued by Capital One don’t charge any conversion fee at all. I got such a card to for the express purpose of using it

outside the U.S. Often when calling back to the U.S. you have to pay what can amount to expensive international calling charges. But, I found if you have access to WiFi while on vacation, you can save a bundle. I used my iPod Touch, which is not a phone, and downloaded Skype, which most people use to carry on conversations using computers. Skype also allows you to call a landline phone and talk using your computer. So, using my iPod Touch, which is small enough to put in my pocket, I walked

around, found local places advertising free WiFi, and made my calls to the telephones back home. The only thing I needed to get before I left the U.S. was a set of earbuds that included a microphone in the cord. Skype has a 30-day free trial period which both my brother Stewart and I used when we went outside the U.S. Stewart found Skype to be very good, with a clear connection, but only when he had a strong enough WiFi signal. I also found Skype worked perfectly and was

simply amazed at the clarity of the calls. Going over your free trial period cost less than $7 a month, but it’s well worth it when you compare it with the cost of an international cell phone calling plan. Bottom line, a little planning can save you a lot if you’re considering travel outside the U.S. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

Favorite recipes are shared among friends, readers Today and next week I’m sharing some favorite recipes – the ones that readers request throughout the year. If you have a favorite dish that everyone raves about, I’d love for you to share it. Try the frozen fruit cocktail dessert or sorbet for a cool ending to the recordbreaking hot days we’ve been having.

Lela Groene’s heirloom frozen fruit cocktail dessert

“This was a favorite at holidays and other special meals,” Lela wrote. Make sure you use evaporated, not sweetened condensed milk, for this dessert. 3 oz. cream cheese, softened 2 tablespoons lemon juice 1 tablespoon maraschino cherry juice (from jar) 2 ⁄3 cup evaporated milk 16 large marshmallows 16-oz. can fruit cocktail, undrained 1 ⁄4 cup chopped maraschi-

no cherries. M i x together cheese and juices, and let stand. In a Rita saucepan, Heikenfeld c o m b i n e Rita’s kitchen milk and marshmallows. Stir over medium heat until marshmallows melt. Remove from heat. Stir in cream cheese mixture. Mix in fruit cocktail and cherries. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper muffin cups. Spoon mixture evenly into muffin cups. Freeze until firm. Remove from tin, still in paper muffin cups, and serve frozen. They will thaw just a little on the serving plate.

Jayne Homsher’s bleu cheese coleslaw

Madeira resident Jayne Homsher shares her version. Feel free to add more bleu cheese if you like.


11⁄2 lbs. green cabbage, shredded 2 carrots, peeled and shredded 1 ⁄4 cup sweet onion, finely chopped 1 ⁄3 cup cider vinegar 3 tablespoons sugar 1 ⁄3 cup mayonnaise 1 ⁄3 cup sour cream 1 ⁄3 cup crumbled bleu cheese Salt and pepper to taste Combine cabbage, carrots and onion. Heat cider vinegar and sugar to boil. Toss with vegetables and let sit 15 minutes. Drain the vegetables well and combine with remaining ingredients. Prepare at least two hours ahead or overnight so flavors can mingle.

Helen Sarky’s Lebanese vegetarian green bean stew

Anderson Township reader Helen Sarky sent me this recipe. These beans are always served in some fashion at the famous Lebanese festival held at St. Anthony’s of Padua

1 pound fresh or frozen green beans, cut into 2-inch lengths 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 ⁄2 cup sliced thinly onions 1 tablespoon minced garlic (opt.) 1 ⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon or to taste Salt and pepper to taste 2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint 11⁄2 cups diced tomatoes 1 cup water or chicken stock 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Five-minute fruit sorbet

Any canned fruit works well. Fruit cocktail and apricot are favorites at my house.

1 can, 16 oz. or so, fruit in heavy syrup 1 tablespoons lemon juice 1 teaspoon vanilla (opt.) Place unopened can in freezer for at least 12 hours or until frozen. Submerge unopened can in hot water for a minute to loosen edges.

Heat oil over medium heat until hot. Add onions and sauté until caramelized (three minutes); add garlic and sauté another two minutes. Stir in cinnamon, salt, pepper and mint and keep stirring. Add tomatoes, water and lemon juice and keep stirring. Add beans and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover pan and cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Serve over a bed of cooked rice.

Transfer contents to food processor or blender in batches if necessary, cutting into several chunks. Process or blend until smooth, about half a minute. Add lemon juice and blend. Scoop into balls and serve right away or refreeze up to eight hours. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. E-mail columns@community with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line.

100’s Lined up Yesterday at the Hilton Hotel Cincinnati Airport for the Vintage Guitar Show. By Mort Enright STAFF WRITER TheInternationalVintageGuitarCollectorsAssociation will be placing ads in newspapers, radio and running television spots this week asking people to bring in any and all guitars. Those that do bring in their guitars will be able to speak with collectors one on one and have their items looked at with an expert set of eyes. With the help of these IVGCA members, offers will be made to those that have vintage and modern guitars. Highest prices are paid for those made before 1970. All guitars will be examined and purchased including vintage guitars, acoustic guitars, banjos, any and all other types of musical instruments. Those that decide to sell their items will be paid on the spot. If you are like a lot of people you might have an old Vintage Guitar lying around. If you have ever wondered what it’s worth, now might be your chance to find out and even sell it, if you choose. Vintage guitars could be worth a lot according to the International Vintage Guitar Collectors Association also known as IVGCA. Collectors will pay a fortune for Vintage Guitars, Banjos, Acoustic Guitars and even Drum Sets for their collections. If they are rare enough, one could be worth over $100,000 according to David Mcintosh, Vintage Guitar Collector and IVGCA member. One 1960 Gibson Les Paul went for $100,000 to a collector in July of 2007. While that is an extreme example, many rare and valuable guitars are stashed away in attics, closets, basements, or in a garage around the country. The IVGCA and its collectors have organized a traveling event in search of all types of Vintage Guitars and Instruments. “Even common guitars can be worth a significant amount due to high collector demands,” says Mcintosh. The rarest guitars these collectors are looking for include: Martin, Gibson, Gretsch and Rickenbacker. These guitars always bring big premiums according to the IVGCA. While the IVGCA’s specialty is guitars, they are also examining other instruments, including drum sets, banjos, flutes, clarinets, etc. The IVGCA says “You never really know what you have until your item is evaluated by experts. Whatever kind of instrument you may have, bring it in to our experts. Think about it. You could walk away $100,000 richer!” So, whether you have one instrument you think might be valuable or a large collection you recently inherited, you can talk to these collectors for free. If you’re lucky, you may have a rarity worth thousands. Either way, there is nothing to lose and it sounds like fun. CE-0000415957

Last week’s question:

With a new poll showing support sliding for Ohio’s smoking ban, with Kentucky counties considering a ban, how effective are such bans? “I can’t remember the last time I was exposed to people smoking in an indoor public place in Ohio. That is proof enough for me to believe the ban works and I want it to continue to work. “While I smoked for about 8 years during my teenage and early 20s years, I quit in 1970 and have not smoked again. “I find exposure to smoke offensive and we all know it is unhealthy. There is no reasonable basis for questioning that it is workplace hazard for those who must work where people smoke. No one has a ‘right’ to contaminate the air that we breath. “Ohio should not back down on this issue.” F.S.D. “The bans keep people from smoking inside, but how do we stop smokers from lighting up two steps from the front door?” J.K. “Interesting that Kentucky is considering a smoking ban, while some people in Ohio are trying to have the ban rescinded. “I love the smoking ban – there are so many places I go now that I would not go when they were smoke-filled. “And there are Kentucky establishments I avoid, because they are still smoke-filled. I hope the current Ohio policy stays in effect, as is!” J.S.B. “I will not patronize any establishment that allows smoking where I am going to sit and eat. Such patronage usually lasts an hour. Exposure to third-hand smoke is not prudent. “I do not think gambling is wise either. The state of Ohio encourages that activity (lottery) too. “It makes you wonder about the intelligence of the legislatures. Of course legislatures and intelligence are oxymorons. “Why would any educated person submit themselves to a proven health hazard promulgated by stupid people?” J.S.D. “In my opinion, they are totally ineffective in terms of inducing smokers to quit, and probably only minimally effective, if at all, in reducing exposure of nonsmokers to second-hand smoke. “I suspect that the bans are only ‘feel-good’ measures in the end. I say this as a reformed and repentant smoker who smoked for probably 25 years, and quit only after 2 year-long failed attempts. I wish I had never started, but I can't change the past. “Addiction to cigarettes is in the same category as obesity and poor physical fitness today. It's all about willpower.

Next question Tri-County Mall has joined Newport on the Levee and is now requiring teens to have an adult escort after 4 p.m. on weekends. Do you support the idea? Why or why not? Send answers to “mshaw@nky. com” with Chatroom in the subject line. “We can blame it on Sir Walter Raleigh, I guess, but ultimately we have to take responsibility for own actions.” Bill B. “I love, love, love the smoking ban in Ohio. My family now chooses Ohio restaurants, etc. over Kentucky ones based on the fact that across the river we still have to deal with cigarette smoke. So I would say the ban is very effective. “’‘Voluntary’ bans are useless. The locations where a large number of the customers smoke (and thereby where the owners would likely be reluctant to stop them) are exactly the locations that are the most dangerous for workers and unpleasant for non-smokers. Those are the locations that a full ban on smoking helps the most.” E.S. “I think the ban is very effective. I particularly like the ban in restuarants. I hated eating in smoky places and would avoid certain establishments because of the smoke. Keep the ban.” K.S. “It would be nice if smoking bans were more effective. Currently, as a non-smoker and someone who enjoys fresh air, my rights are frequently violated. “For example, it is difficult to avoid cigarrette smoke filled-air when I am waiting at my bus stop. Also, many people smoke nearby entrances to public buildings that I need to access. “However, I am glad that public locations such as restaurants, hotels, sports venues, and offices do allow smoking. I support to extend and expand the smoking ban as much as possible.” D.M. “I’m a non-smoker. Secondhand smoke irritates me. I can’t help that and the irritation isn’t something I should have to endure in order for another person to enjoy tobacco. “I am quite tolerant of smokers and in bygone years I didn’t have many problems with tobacco use in restaurants that had smoking and non-smoking sections. “The ban, however, covers public places such as stores, restaurants, malls, workplaces such as offices, indoor arenas, and outdoor stadiums. “That has been helpful. No more gagging while standing in line at the BMV.” R.V. “Not sure, but I like the nonsmoking restaurants.” N.P.

Kentucky, start your engines When Kentucky Speedway announced Aug. 10 that NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series was coming to Sparta, the roar of celebration sounded like a whole row of 358ci engines being fired up. For Speedway owners, old and new, the inaugural 400-mile race scheduled for July 9, 2011, is the culmination of an 11-year dream for a world-class track built for that purpose and long praised by drivers at all levels. And for tens of thousands of hard-core stock-car fans in Kentucky, the race is pay-off for decades of patience and poorly concealed anticipation. They’ve seen many a competitive race at the Speedway over the years, including NASCAR’s Nationwide (formerly the Busch Series) and Camping World Truck divisions as well as the IZOD IndyCar Series. But the Sprint Cup Series is stock-car racing at its highest level – the best drivers, the fastest cars, the richest sponsors and the largest crowds. Kentucky is used to worldclass sports action. After all, we’re home to the Kentucky Derby … the FEI-Alltech World Equestrian Games … the Ryder Cup … the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event … the U.S. Open Sporting Clay Championships (which brought a thousand shooters to Owen County last year) … and some of the most storied and successful college basketball programs in the country. But Speedway owners and gear-heads aren’t the only ones celebrating NASCAR’s announcement. For business owners in Gallatin County and across the region, an annual Sprint Cup Series race represents the sound of cash registers filling up.

The economic impact of a Sprint Cup race and the events that surround it has been estimated by track officials at up to $150 million. Gov. Steve NASCAR is Beshear the nation’s No. spectator sport, Community 1with 17 of the Recorder 20 highestguest attended sportcolumnist ing events in U.S. history. That’s why Bruton Smith, chairman and CEO of Speedway Motorsports Inc., is spending $90 million to $100 million to add 50,000 seats and make other improvements at the Sparta track. NASCAR racing is also the No. 2-rated regular season sport on television. NASCAR races are broadcast in more than 150 countries and in more than 30 languages. That’s a lot of coin, and that’s a lot of attention. Local businesses and local leaders have reason to be excited. State officials are excited too. For us, the announcement is further evidence that collaboration breeds success, and that aggressive efforts to ramp up Kentucky’s economic development and tourism attractions are paying off. Job by job, business by business and announcement by announcement, we’re shaking off the malaise of this global economic recession. And we’re doing it together. Without incentives passed during an overhaul of Kentucky’s economic development tools in 2009, the pending expansion of the track would not be happening and the race would not

Deep Bluebirds aim for 4-peat By James Weber


The Highlands High School football team is usually known for being big and fast. This year, the Bluebirds may be known just as much for their depth as they try for their fourth straight state championship and state record 20th overall. Head coach Dale Mueller, entering his 17th season at Highlands, said no Bluebird will play both sides of the ball this Abner year. “We’re really fired up,” he said. “This year we have more excellent football players than we’ve ever Hahn had. We have 81 guys, which is about 10 more than we’ve ever had. Nobody on offense is even learnSeidl ing a defensive position, so we’ve been able to get 100 percent of practice time at their position. If you’re a linebacker, you don’t have to go over and run tight end routes.” The depth should help the Bluebirds, who graduated a full complement of standouts and eventual college players from last year’s Class 5A state champs, who rolled to a 15-0 record and beat John Hardin 35-7 in the state final. The biggest spot to replace is at running back, with Austin Collinsworth now enrolled at the Univer-

sity of Notre Dame after rushing for 1,502 yards and 23 scores. Second-leading rusher Tyler Fennell is also gone. Corey Compton, Jordan Streeter and Jake True will fill that role and Mueller is excited about the potential of the group. Streeter had 559 yards on the ground last year. “They are three outstanding backs,” Mueller said. “I don’t know if we’ve ever had a group of three like that.” One key spot with the same starter is quarterback, where Patrick Towles returns after taking the job midway through the 2009 season. He was fourthstring entering spring ball in 2009 and eventually moved up to second string last season, eventually becoming the starter when Will Bardo was injured. He threw for 1,138 yards. Towles, a 6-foot-5, 230pound junior, has worked hard in the offseason. “We were a running team last year but we passed it a lot to get Patrick experience,” Mueller said. “He has just worked, he’s gotten stronger, gone to a nutritionist, he’s faster than ever. He’s put on about 30 pounds.” Most of the receptions from last year were in the hands of departed graduates. Daniel Gold, a thirdyear starter at receiver, is the top returner. Mueller is pleased with his talent at the position, led by senior Brian Gall, junior Austin Sheehan, and senior Eli Schultz.

Aaron Robinson, Austin Trapp, Ryan Hahn, Robby Nienaber, Keenan Weigand and Robert Sanders anchor the offensive line, who lost Miami University signee Tyler Grubbs to graduation. “I feel we’ll be strong,” said Hahn, a senior. “We don’t have the size on the line we had last year. We don’t have a 6-6 285pound right tackle, but we’re faster and I think that’s what Highlands looks for in a team. We rely on speed.” Austin Abner, one of the best defensive backs in the area, leads the defense. Drake Bruns and Ty Seidl also return as starters in the secondary. “We had a lot of good seniors last year and we have to pick up where they left off,” Abner said. “We have so much speed on defense, we get to the ball fast.” Billy Huddleston, Brendan Sullivan, Sam Chambers, Luke Dressman and Josh Quillen are the top linebackers.

Highlands High School head coach Dale Mueller enjoys a moment during practice. He enters his 17th season as head coach. Bowden lead the defensive line. Senior Austin Hollingsworth moves into the line as well. “Last year’s defense was good, but we’re farther ahead than we were last year and we should be better,” Seidl said. “This year, we lost some size but our speed has increased even more and that should help us with what we’re doing.” Adam Weinel, the senior kicker and punter, is getting Division I college looks. Highlands starts with three straight home games, including DuPont Manual Aug. 20. Mueller said this year’s senior class is poised


same way. “It means a lot,” Hahn said. “I love football. I’ve been playing since third grade and I’ve always looked up to Highlands football players. People are looking down at us and thinking we can’t win the state championship again, and we’re looking to prove them wrong.”

Camels learn from tough 2009 season By James Weber

They had one of Northern Kentucky’s most prolific passing attacks last season, but that translated into three wins for the Campbell County football team. The Camels struggled with injuries and defensive lapses last year on their way to a 3-7 record. While they expect the offense to get even better, they know their key to success is improving last year’s 36.5 points per game allowed to the opposing offense. “It was really disappointing,” said senior linebacker

They’re a hardworking bunch,” he said. “We got a lot of kids hurt early (last year). The silver lining is you get a lot of kids to get experience playing, which helps them be prepared for this year. We have a lot of guys who can step up and play.” The defensive leader is a familiar name, linebacker Joe Sauerbeck, the latest in a recent line of Sauerbeck’s at that position. Like his predecessors, Joe led the Camels in tackles last year and returns for his senior season ready to do more. “Joe is the heart of our defense,” Geiman said. “He’s been great in the offseason. We have a lot of guys who are stepping up.” Geiman is also a key returning linebacker. Senior Mike Teegarden, senior Luke Walerius and junior Mason Franck anchor the line.

Kremer Walerius season,” said Walerius, a returning starter. “(Last year) left a sour taste in our mouths. Me and the other linemen hit the weight room pretty hard this offseason.” The offense is also working to improve, as they return many of the playmakers from last year. Senior quarterback Michael Kremer threw for 2,587 yards and 20 touchdowns. He is excited for another season. “It’s fun,” he said. “I know the ins and outs. We’ve been able to put a lot more stuff in that we couldn’t put in last year. We’ve put more plays in . We just look at each other and know what we’re doing.” He returns his top three receivers from last year in Geiman, Matt Smith and Corey Cox, who are all seniors.

to improve the Camels’ running attack, Styer said. The Camels rushed for just 50 yards a game last year.

Eviston aims to take NCC to state finals By James Weber


While Eddie Eviston was running drills with the Newport Central Catholic football team, his predecessor was circling around him doing one of his favorite pastimes, cutting the practice field at NewCath in a riding mower. Bob Schneider has retired after 44 seasons as head coach and a state record 345 wins, and Eviston is enjoying the challenge of replacing him. “We’ve got a lot of work to do,” he said. “The kids are working hard. It’s been different. I’ve been loving it. It’s a different challenge for me. I’m working with great people and it’s been good.” Eviston was a former standout quarterback at NewCath and Georgetown College before having a career in arena football. He takes over a team that went 7-6 and lost to DeSales in the third round of the Class 2A playoffs, an unexpected result for a program used to playing in the state finals in recent years. “We saw DeSales, how they worked hard and got a lot better,” NCC senior receiver/linebacker Jake Cain said. “We’ve got to do the same thing. They were bigger, stronger and faster and that’s what we have to be to get back to state.” NCC returns a lot of its skill players on offense, led

Hightchew rushed for 1,141 yards and threw for 944. Cain and Brian Doyle are among the top receivers.

Doyle, a safety, led the team in interceptions last year with eight. “We need some of our younger guys to step up and be ready to fill in,” Eviston said. “Our numbers aren’t the greatest, but the kids are working hard.” They are working hard for a return to the state finals, where the Thoroughbreds last were in 2008 and last left victorious in 2006. “Especially for coach in his first year, it would mean a lot to him, getting success right off the bat,” Cain said. “Seeing all those guys before who won state championships, I want to try to get these guys going and win a title.” Said Eviston: “It’s always the goal, the expectation of this school and this community. It’s a matter of us putting people in the right places and getting it done. We have to improve week to week, get off on a stronger foot than we have in the past.” NewCath plays Dixie Heights at the University of Cincinnati as part of the Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown Aug. 20.

Brossart wants to build on playoff berth By James Weber


They got a taste of playoff football last year. But now the Bishop Brossart High School football team wants more. The Mustangs lost 16-7 to Frankfort in last year’s Class 1A playoffs, the first postseason game in the program’s history. While the Mustangs were the only four seed to lose by fewer than 10 points in the first round statewide, they regretted not taking advantage of a chance to win the game. “We learned that conditioning is key,” said senior offensive lineman/middle linebacker Kyle Reinhart. “Going into the fourth quarter of the playoff game, we were definitely out of it.” Brossart was 5-6 last year after going 0-20 its first two seasons of existence. This year, head coach Matt Reinhart brings back a veteran group as he begins his third year with the team. “The winning was a huge step for us,” Reinhart said. “You always have to get that first one and sustain it and try to get more. We got that first win and took off from there. If it wasn’t for swine flu hitting us in the middle of the season, we could have seven or eight wins.”

Reinhart said the defense should be strong, with his son, Kyle, returning at middle linebacker. Senior Steve Neltner returns at linebacker and senior Kyle Schack on the line. John Schack also returns at linebacker. Brossart returns eight starters overall. “We have a lot of returning seniors and a lot of juniors who have been playing for three years,” Kyle Schack said. “The feeling of winning really drives everyone now. We want to win again.” While the Mustangs prospered with strong running last year, many of those backs graduated, including leading rusher Chris Bowman. Andrew Guidugli, Jake Elbert and Ryan Enzweiler will take over this year. Schack, Neltner and Reinhart are all returning veterans on the O-line. John Schack and Connor Boesch are talented tight ends.

We’re going to shotgun now, we’re trying to diversify our team and take advantage of our skill players.” “We’ll open up our offense a little bit more,” coach Reinhart said. “We have faith in Jesse. He’s developed nicely. We have receivers we’re comfortable with. We’d love to get to the point where we air it out. We don’t know if we’re quite there yet.” The coach said a key to the team is staying healthy. The Mustangs have a 40man roster, mostly seniors and freshmen.

Wildcats seek growth in Rice’s second year By James Weber

Last year was a tough beginning for head coach Nick Rice with the Newport High School football program. But he and the Wildcats have a chance to redeem themselves after a 2-9 season in 2009. Newport will play the same 10 teams in the regular season this year. “We have Rice high expectations,” Rice said. “We have 19 seniors, the most we’ve had in years. We may have finished 2-8 but we probably could have won five games. We beat ourselves in the last two minutes a couple of times.” Rice sees a change in attitude in the team this year. “This group has really

NEWPORT HIGH SCHOOL bought in,” he said. “It’s a great group of kids. We have the exact same schedule as last year. We know our opponent a lot more than last year and the coaches have now been together for a year. That helps a lot.” Rice has a leader at quarterback to turn to in senior Demetri Brown, entering his second season under center. Brown threw for 1,252 yards and 16 touchdowns last season and was Newport’s leading rusher with 677 yards and eight scores. “Demetri is looking better and better,” Rice said. “His speed even looks better than

last year. He’s going to be a weapon no matter how we use him.” “I’m way more comfortable in the pocket,” Brown said. “Last year, I was back there scrambling, scared to get hit. This year I can sit back there and make my reads and get the ball where it needs to be.” Two of his top weapons from last year return in junior receiver Rob Washington and senior running back Brandon Carter. Washington missed most of last year with a broken collarbone but the tall, talented receiver has great promise, Rice said. Carter, the state runner-up in the 400 meters at the Class 1A state track meet, is the fastest player on the team.

He was the leading receiver last year with 27 catches for 425 yards. Bradley Messer, one of the top lineman, is the strongest player on the team. Jacob Whaley, a senior receiver/linebacker, was one of the hardest working Wildcats in the offseason, said the coach. Senior lineman Dinikko Waller is a strong physical presence. Senior linebacker Rodney Orr has stepped upon the defense during the summer. “This is going to be a really good season because we

have a lot of pieces to the puzzle,” Brown said. “We have a lot of speed and a lot of strength. Last year one of our weaknesses was our line but this year we have a stacked line and we have the pieces to go win a state championship.” The high goals are part of a winning attitude Rice has been trying to instill in the program. “We’re coming together a lot earlier this year than last year,” he said. “At this point we’re a hundred times farther ahead than we were.” Newport opens the season with its brief trip down the street to play Bellevue Aug. 27. Newport’s first home game is Sept. 17 against Dayton.

New coach leads new-look Tigers By James Weber

Brandon Fogelman is one of Bellevue’s top receivers this year.


Bellevue game days

Aug. 20 Holy Cross Aug. 27 Newport Sept. 3 @ Holmes Sept. 10 @ Scott Sept. 24 @ Walton-Verona Oct. 8 Dayton Oct. 15 Ludlow Oct. 22 @ Beechwood Oct. 29 @ Lloyd All games at 7 p.m. unless otherwise noted.

Russ Shearer never got the chance to coach Ricky Buckler, but he knows the impact Buckler’s departure has on the Bellevue High School football program. Buckler is the 2010 graduate who rewrote the Bellevue record books in rushing categories. As an assistant coach at the University of the Cumberland, Shearer recruited Buckler to play college ball there but then left to take over as head coach of Buckler’s high school alma mater. “He was the steal of our recruiting class,” said Shearer, who starts his first head coaching job this year. He takes over a team that went 9-4 and lost to Beechwood in the Class 1A state quarterfinals. Replacing Buckler is a key priority for Shearer, but the coach said he has a lot of returning talent. He has changed the offense to a triple-option attack that is designed to take advantage of the multiple weapons Bellevue is grooming. “The triple option makes teams play disciplined defense,” Shearer said. “We’re not as athletic as many of the teams we’ll play. We need to win oneon-one battles. When you play triple option, they have to play assignment defense.” Taking over as top running back is senior D.J. Slater, who was the blocking back for Buckler last year and will also return kicks. “He’s due for a breakout season,” Shearer said. “He’s matured a lot, I’ve worked a

BELLEVUE HIGH SCHOOL lot with him. He’s matured physically over the summer.” Freshman Dylan Huff joins the running back corps and Shearer is excited about his prospects at challenging Buckler’s records. Junior Jacob Sparks takes over at quarterback and Shearer said he is learning the complexities of the new offense. “It’s a little bit more where we have to read the defense and we have to think more out there,” Shearer said. “Jake has been doing a great job with that. We’ll try to throw more and keep teams from focusing on the run.”

The Dayton High School football team will have 10 chances at redemption this fall. The Greendevils will play the same 10 opponents in the regular season they played last season, including five Class 1A district foes. Nine of those teams beat Dayton last season as the Greendevils struggled through a tough year. Dayton beat Walton-Verona in district play. Zach Deaton returns for

DAYTON HIGH SCHOOL his fourth year as Dayton head coach. Deaton returns a young team with just six seniors. The Greendevils return six starters on both sides of the ball and will be heavily junior-oriented. Many of

fellow head coaches Eddie Eviston (NewCath) and Stephen Lickert (Holmes) at Georgetown College, with Dave Campbell (Scott) as an assistant coach. A religious man who values his family, including a six-month old son, Shearer decided to leave the grind of traveling and recruiting for the opportunity to help teenagers become men. “My high school coach probably had about as much influence on me as anyone in my life,” he said. “I grew up as a poor kid in Eastern Kentucky. My coach always stressed to me the value of using my brain. I didn’t care about anything then. He got me to come out for football and have something to work on and care about. “On judgment day (God) won’t ask how many games I won he’ll ask how many lives I changed. That’s something that means a lot to me.”

Dayton returns young football team By James Weber

Brandon Fogelman, Nolan Rechtin and Tyler Howe lead the receiving corps. Seniors Rick Allen and Joe Lenz anchor the offensive line. Many of those players will also lead the defense under coordinator Nate Webster, the former Bengals linebacker and NFL veteran whose playing days have been over for a couple of years and is now finishing his college degree. “Nate Webster has really done a great job getting the kids ready,” Shearer said. “If they want to play hard for you, that’s a big part of the battle, and Nate is a high energy type of guy. I can see him five years from now being a great linebackers coach in the NFL or college.” Defensive back Cody Corman and David Verkamp are other key Tiger defenders. While this is Shearer’s first foray into Northern Kentucky, he played with

those juniors had plenty of playing time last year. The leaders among those juniors Deaton are running back/linebacker Chris Pompilio, tight end/defensive lineman Jordan Smith, running back/linebacker Henry Horsley, receiver/defensive back Ben Schoultheis, receiver/defensive back Walton Forrester and receiver/defensive back T.R.

Community joins to help Fort Thomas family March that raised approximately $12,000 toward the project. Area contractors and businesses heard about the situation and decided to help. Jim Cutter even offered to take the lead. “Originally, I thought our company could help the family renovating the existing home to allow Bobbi to navigate throughout the first floor and be a part of her children’s daily lives,” said Cutter, owner of Cutter Construction. “When I visited with her to see just how difficult that would be, I offered to put together a team of Northern Kentucky Home Builder members to build an addition and renovate the entire home, so Bobbi and her family would not have to move. Although our industry is experiencing

one of the worst corrections in history, we are surrounded by individuals that understand the need to help others.” The Northern Kentucky Home Inspectors pick one project a year to be involved with. They will provide a lot of free labor. “This is great,” said Dave Kraus, one of the Davis friends helping with the project. “The majority of the labor will be free making the project much more feasible.” The Davis family has moved out of their home temporarily so that construction can begin this week. The home does not have a level or handicap entrance. Bobbi has a difficult time using the kitchen appliances and even getting into the restroom is a chal-

lenge. Once the home is complete, the entire first floor will be handicap accessible, there will be a level entrance to the home and everything will be brought up to code. The renovation and addition should take about four months. Although some money was raised in March and a lot of materials and labor are being donated, $35,000 is still needed. Cash donations can be sent to Cutter Construction at 4905 Holtz Drive, Cold Spring, KY, 41076. People wanting to volunteer on the project or donate materials can call Cutter Construction at 859781-6924. “We are so appreciative everyone’s generosity,” said Bobbi Davis Brock. “It’s amazing to see our friends and family, Cutter Construction, the Home Builders Association and so many others come together to help our family,” Jimmy Brock said.

The $150,000 longawaited construction project has started at the home of Bobbi Davis Brock and Jimmy (Capek) Brock. Friends, family and even area businesses came together last winter to raise money and donate time and money to make the Brock home handicap accessible. Bobbi was diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease about six years ago. After several surgeries, physical therapy and medications, the disease progressed so much that Bobbi will never walk and must use a wheel chair. Her Fort Thomas home is not handicap accessible. Her children Erika and Matthew Crocket attend Fort Thomas schools. Bobbi’s friends and family held a fundraiser in

WEG course designer pleased with progress The driving course designer for the upcoming Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, Richard Nicoll, was recently on the grounds of the Kentucky Horse Park for several days to work with the course builder, meet with various decorators, and generally check on the progress of the marathon obstacles. According to Nicoll, construction is now about 95 percent complete on the marathon obstacles. Once everything is finished, all that will remain is the decorating. Some of this will need to be completed at the last minute because two obstacles contain portable elements that will be moved into place after the eventing cross-country phase (on the first Saturday during the WEG). After his meeting with the decorators, Nicoll was pleased to note how enthusiastic and, with the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event having been at the Kentucky Horse Park for so many years, how experienced they are. He expects that spectators familiar with driving, and those new to the sport, will be wowed by the beauty of the course. The drivers themselves


A portion of one of the two marathon water obstacles, as seen from above, at the grounds for the World Equestrian Games. may not appreciate the beauty of the obstacles to the same degree that the spectators will, but they will have their own beautiful views earlier in the day. While he was here, Nicoll inspected the course he had laid out for Sections A and D of the marathon. The track does not just go “round and round a field,” as he said, but follows roads, pathways, and pastures through several working farms adjoining the Kentucky Horse Park. So the drivers

will get a unique view of some truly beautiful Kentucky countryside and farmland. Nicoll says that he’s “very encouraged and excited about all the progress that’s been made at the Horse Park.” And he encourages everyone to come out on Saturday, Oct. 9, to watch the driving marathon, if for no other reason than this is probably the only time in our lifetimes that we’ll be able to see so many FEI-level four-

in-hand drivers in one North American location. Nicoll recalled how, after the 1993 World Pairs Championship in New Jersey, a number of people said they had heard how wonderful the championship was and how much they regretted having missed it. “This time around, don’t be someone who regrets not having come to see the driving championship. This is going to be too good to miss!”

YMCA gets a new look For the first time in 43 years the Campbell County YMCA and all of the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati branches have an all new brand strategy that more clearly tells the story of how the YMCA is dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

The strategy includes a new bold, active and welcoming logo. The new YMCA brand is a national change that is the result of more than two years of analysis and research by the YMCA of the USA. Locally, all of the branches will begin to incor-

Sharks exhibit now more crowded Newport Aquarium’s giant shark tank just got a little more crowded. Biologists added more animals to the exhibit.


The new logo for the YMCA.

Top model


Four new Blacktip Reef sharks were added. Each one is about three-feet long and only a few years old. As the name suggests, they are

easily identified by the prominent black tips on their fins, especially on the first dorsal and the caudal fins. They are among the

most abundant sharks inhabiting the tropical coral reefs of the Indian and Pacific Oceans. “The exhibit is called ‘Surrounded by Sharks,’ so we want it to stay true to its name,” said Mark Dvornak, fish and invertebrate curator for Newport Aquarium. “There’s definitely going to be more action in the tank since these sharks are always on the move.” The four new Blacktips join four already in the Surround by Sharks exhibit, as well as the host of other animals that currently call the exhibit home. The additions make the Aquarium’s popular tunnel gallery one of the most diverse salt water displays in the region. There are a total of 19 sharks representing six shark species, four rays representing two species and two shark rays. Extended summer hours last until Sept. 4, during which the Aquarium is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Newport Aquarium is open to the public 365 days a year.
