Social service tax

Campbell County uses a mental health and retardation and senior service tax to bolster the social safety net provided by both the county and outside agencies. The two taxes generated about $1.4 million in 2008. “The requests are overwhelming. We had over $3 million in requests this year,” said Campbell County’s Director of Human Services Pat Dressman. The county is trying to serve the most people possible with the money, and for the 2008 fiscal year the money helped 12,722 residents, she said. NEWS, A2

Social service tax ties safety net together By Chris Mayhew

Campbell County uses a mental health and retardation and senior service tax to bolster the social safety net provided by both the county and outside agencies. The two taxes generated about $1.4 million in 2008. Of the county’s payroll tax, 0.1 percent is for mental health and retardation, and .05 percent is for senior services, said Jim Seibert, the county’s fiscal director. The mental health tax supplements programs are as varied as paying some housing-related expenses for the mentally disabled to a supervised parental visitation program for children who are believed to have

been abused. Many of those programs also receive funding from the United Way or the state, but the county uses its funds to bolster those services, said Campbell County’s Director of Human Services Pat Dressman. Dressman’s assessment of what would happen if the county couldn’t infuse the money is bleak. “They would go without being served, which would be devastating, we would have people out on the streets,� she said. Included in what the senior tax pays for are the operation of the county’s senior center in Highland Heights, delivering of hot meals for seniors, personal care and homemaking for

the frail or homebound elderly and transportation to doctor appointments. Keeping seniors in their homes is important in part because the county doesn’t have enough nursing home beds for that, but also because it saves money, Dressman said. “Either put them in a nursing home at $70,000 a year or get them some help with adult daycare,� Dressman said. Dressman spreads out the tax money she’s charged with distributing across a lengthy list of providers who receive funding via a grant application process. The county is trying to serve the most people possible with the money, and for the 2008 fiscal year the money helped 12,722 residents, she said. “The requests are overwhelming, we had over $3 million in requests this

Covert Run project going out to bid By Amanda Joering Alley After years of flooding issues, relief may be in sight for residents on Covert Run Pike in Bellevue. Bids for a contractor are going out Thursday, Aug. 20 for the Covert Run Stormwater Sewer Project.


The project, estimated to cost more than $1 million, is meant to design a stormwater sewer to carry storm runoff beneath Covert Run and exit in a nearby creek. Part of the project, which is being funded by the city, state agencies and Sanitation District No. 1, also

includes replacing the current water main and sanitary sewers in the area. City Administrator Keith Spoelker said the city won’t know much about how the project will go or how long it will take until the bids are in, which will be Tuesday, Sept. 8, and a contractor is selected.

BRIEFLY The City of Newport will receive $730,720 in federal stimulus funds to design and build a bicycle and pedestrian path connecting Newport on the Levee with housing along the riverfront. The funding will be for part of the Newport Riverfront Commons and is coming from federal Corridor, and is coming from Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality grants. The announcement of the funds, approved by Gov. Steve Beshear, was announced by Rep. Dennis Keene, D-Wilder, and the Campbell County Economic Progress Authority Aug. 13. According to John Austin, president of the Economic Progress Authority, Riverfront Commons will attract at least $44 million in annual benefits to Northern Kentucky. Riverfront Commons is a planned $50 million series of parks and trails linking Covington, Newport and Bellevue. Keene also announced that the City of Southgate will receive $240,595 in federal Safe Routes to Schools grant funding to connect Temple Place with housing on Moock Road. According to a news release from Keene, both grants are designed to make the district friendlier for non-motorized forms of transportation. The economic benefits include allowing more access to local businesses, but there are also health and environmental benefits if motorists decided to take alternative modes of transportation, according to the news release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will continue to work tirelessly to secure as much funding for improvement of my district as is available,â&#x20AC;? said Keene in the release.

Basic training graduates

Law enforcement officers from 12 agencies across the state graduated today from basic training at the Kentucky Department of Criminal Justice Training. The 12 officers of Class 405 completed 18 weeks of training, which consisted of more than 750 hours, recruit-level-officer academy instruction.

NCC celebrates completion of additions, renovations By Amanda Joering Alley

Newport Central Catholic celebrated the completion of a $7.5million renovation and addition project Monday, Aug. 17. The project has been years in the making, said Ron Dawn, dean of discipline at the school. “The project first started being talked about more than seven years ago, and now, besides a few odds and ends still to do, it is complete,” Dawn said. The funding for the project

came from donations from more than 700 alumni, families and friends of the school and community philanthropists. Marcia Burke, who attended the celebration with her family, said they wanted to donate to the project because her husband Michael Burke, a 1961 graduate, loved the school. “We just wanted to have a chance to give something back,” Burke said. “My husband, who has passed away, just thought this school was wonderful.” The 27,000-square-foot addi-

tion included seven new classrooms, a new chapel, a new health center facility and a new black box theatre. The project also included renovating the school’s existing spaces. “What is so outstanding with this project is that it brought together new and improved facilities to address what we profess as Catholic school educators, what is so very important, the spirit, the mind and the body, a complete education,” said Principal Bob Noll.




Campbell Ridge Elementary School Principal Anthony Mazzei is sopping wet after being submerged in the dunk tank during the first Dunk the Principal fundraiser for the Special Olympics of Northern Kentucky in Alexandria in 2008.

Dunking educators for charity dollars By Chris Mayhew

Campbell County educators will don their swim gear Aug. 29 to help make a drop in the bucket for local Special Olympics athletes by taking the plunge in a dunking booth. The second annual “Dunk the Principal” sponsored by City Brew Coffee will feature educators from 10 schools in the dunking booth at the Alexandria Shopping Center, 8109 Alexandria Pike, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 29. “I’m getting dunked,” said Jill Sowards, first grade teacher at Grant’s Lick Elementary School. Sowards said she jumped at the chance to volunteer to get in the dunking booth to represent her school because she has a brother who was a Special Olympics athlete. “It just had such a positive affect on him, and I just definitely support the Special Olympics and things they do,” Sowards said. Sowards hasn’t told her first grade students yet about their chance to submerge her in a dunking booth, but she’s planning to do so before the event. “I’m sure they would absolutely love to try to get me dunked or at least watch me,” she said. Each school competes to raise the most money via the dunking booth, said Shari Hennekes of Alexandria, the organizer of the event who is one of the owners of City Brew Coffee. Campbell Ridge Elementary School, with Principal Anthony Mazzei in the dunking booth, raised the most money last year, Hennekes said. Mazzei will be back in the dunking booth, but Lynn Poe, the principal of Cline, is excited about raising money for Special Olympics this year, Hennekes said. Money from last year’s inaugural Dunk the Principal in Alexandria bought uniforms for the Special Olympics athletes, and paid for almost 20 to compete in state tournaments, This year it’s hoped to raise enough money to send more local athletes to the state tournament. “Our goal is to sponsor a total of 100 kids at an average cost of $40 per athlete,” Hennekes said.

Event details

The second annual “Dunk the Principal” fundraiser for Special Olympics of Northern Kentucky Area 7 will be at the Alexandria Shopping Center, 8109 Alexandria Pike, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 29. The event will include an inflatable bounce house, cotton candy, face painting, a silent auction, food and music. Here is the schedule of school representatives times in the dunking booth: • 11 a.m.-11:30 a.m., Crossroads Elementary. • 11:30 a.m. to noon, Reiley Elementary. • Noon to 12:30 p.m., St. Mary School. • 12:30 p.m.-1 p.m., Bishop Brossart High School. • 1 p.m.-1:30 p.m., Grant’s Lick Elementary (with teacher Jill Sowards in the booth). • 1:30 p.m.-2 p.m., Campbell Ridge Elementary (with Principal Anthony Mazzei in the booth). • 2 p.m.-2:30 p.m., Campbell County Middle School (with principals Christie Henson and Kathy Gutzwiller in the booth) • 2:30 p.m.-3 p.m., Cline Elementary (teacher Matt Record) • 3 p.m.-3:30 p.m., Campbell County High School. • 3:30 p.m.-4 p.m., McCormick Area Technology Center (with Principal Joe Amann in the booth). Hennekes decided to help raise money for Special Olympics because her neighbor Carol Falwell who coaches everything from bowling and basketball to skiing as a parent volunteer. Falwell’s daughter Christy, 23, and son Jeffrey, 20, who has Down Syndrome, have both been athletes for Special Olympics since 2000. Falwell said she is in awe of Hennekes willingness to help, and the energy she brings to the fundraising through the event. Falwell said Special Olympics has helped her son and daughter be more outgoing, and talkative. Plus, everyone in Special Olympics goes out just to have fun, and nobody ever gets put down, she said. “Once they come to special Olympics we boost their self esteem so they don’t fear going up and talking someone,” Falwell said.

By turning the cap around, the male is signaling that he doesn’t need this protection: he is tough enough to face the elements and the gaze of any who might threaten him.

How to pickle that peck of peppers

When I go out to the garden to pick peppers, I think of Nell Wilson, along with my sisters Sonia Ervin, Christine Lawson and Edith Hartwell. Nell is Ron Wilson’s mom. Ron is our gardening columnist and I met Nell years ago when I was a guest on Ron’s radio show. Nell’s pickled pepper recipe is one of the best. Sonia, Christine and Edith were the first of my sisters to learn to make pickled peppers from my mom. Mom made big batches of everything. Nell’s version is for smaller batches, which are more doable for most of you. Even if you’ve never canned, I hope you try a batch. You’ll be glad you did when you compare the price

Rita Heikenfeld Rita’s kitchen what’s in them.

of pickled peppers with home canned. T h e bonus is they make great gifts from the kitchen, and you k n o w exactly

My sister, Christine, makes my mom’s big batch version of these and uses no sugar at all so it’s up to you. As far as the yield, I don’t remember! It depends on the size of the peppers, whether you use quart or pint jars, etc.

Sterilizing jars

Nell Wilson’s famous pickled peppers

*I make this with a mixture of mostly hot peppers. I usually don’t add 2 cups sugar; I’ll start out with half a cup, taste the brine, and go from there. (Someone told me you could also use Splenda).


Nell Wilson’s pickled peppers recipe. If you have extremely hot peppers, though, the 2 cups of sugar is not too much.

Wash canning jars and lids, then put jars in a big pan, covered with water. Bring to a boil and boil 15 minutes. (If your dishwasher is hot enough, use that to sterilize the jars). Keep in hot water until you’re ready to fill.


6 cups clear vinegar, 5 percent acidity 2 cups water 1 ⁄2 to 2 cups sugar (see

Rita’s herb goat cheese log. note above)* Bring brine to a boil. Let boil gently as you fill jars.

Prepare peppers

Wash. Leave whole with a slit down the center, or cut into slices as desired. I like to remove seeds if I slice them, but this is optional. Remember the membrane that the seeds are attached to is the hottest part of the pepper, and the seeds are the second hottest part. Place peppers in sterilized, hot jars, packing tightly. Pour boiling brine over, covering peppers. Add seasonings, such as garlic, bay leaf, herbs, etc. or leave plain. Wipe rims with wet cloth. Put lids on. No need to process these as the vinegar keeps bacteria out. Jars will seal on their own – you’ll hear little “pings” as the seal completes. Any that don’t seal just put in fridge. Chill in refrigerator before serving.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

• The lids are a twoparter: a flat seal and a ring. The rings are reusable; the seals are not. • Video for pickling peppers on

Rita’s goat cheese log

So easy and so impressive. Just roll a goat cheese log into some chopped


herbs and/or edible flowers. Choose one or two or a lot, like parsley, basil, oregano, rosemary (not too much), chives, thyme, sage, nasturtiums, rose petals, etc. Delicious with French bread or crackers.

Time to save, not spend

I’m not convinced that taxpayers were exactly thrilled with Judge (Steve) Pendery’s article on spending (Pendery-Some spending makes sense Aug. 13). Whether it’s a family suffering cutbacks/lay-offs, or simply county workers faced with wage freezes, it’s all bad news. You are not going to find a family faced with wage cuts running to a high-priced restaurant simply because they are offering “specials.” All of us are seeing the value of our homes shrink and the banks becoming more stingy in terms of loans. This de-valuation in a down economy means that the county will have less tax revenues to work with in the near future. What I am seeing in the private

business sector is a hold on capital projects, and I do not understand why we should expect our government to be any different. Sure, there are things that have to be done, but don’t you think some things can wait? The fact is that we are experiencing really bad times and nobody knows when we will see a trend of recovery that is stable. I can tell you this however: you won’t see many of us out buying new cars, finishing our basements, or adding on to our homes just because it’s cheaper. What you will see is folks trying to hold on to what they have in order to survive this “once in a lifetime crisis.” Kevin Sell Royal Oak Drive Alexandria

School attendance is compulsory in Kentucky With the new school year beginning in most of the local schools, I thought it may be helpful to deal with the issue of compulsory school attendance. Under Kentucky Law, every child between the age of 6 and 16 is required to be enrolled and attend a public or James A. private school unless their physiDaley cal or mental conCommunity dition prevents or Recorder renders inadvisable attendance at guest school or applicacolumnist tion to study. An exemption is also granted to someone under 16 who has already graduated from high school. A child between the ages of 16 and 18 is permitted to drop out of school only with written permission from a parent or guardian and after a conference and counseling with school officials. Any person over the age of 18 who has not completed high school can drop out without written permission of a parent or guardian. Under Kentucky Law, a parent, guardian or custodian of a child is legally responsible for any violation by the child of the Compulsory School Attendance Laws. Under Kentucky Law, a parent, guardian or other custodian is required to see that their children comply with Kentucky’s Compulsory Attendance Laws and any parent, guardian or custodian who intentionally fails to comply with such laws can be fined up to $100 for a first offense, up to $250 for a second offense, and up to 90 days in jail, and up to a $250 fine for a third offense. We often have cases in the Campbell District Court where the children are charged with being habitual truants and the parents are charged with failing to make their children go to school. Fortunately, our local district judges take these cases very seriously and it is not uncommon for parents to receive a heavy fine and/or be sent to jail. It is rare that a parent can come up with a good enough excuse to avoid fines or jail time for not making sure that their children attend school. Under Kentucky Law, any child who has been absent from school without a valid excuse for three or more days or tardy without a valid excuse for three or more days is considered a truant. Any child who has been reported as a truant for three or more times is considered an

When a student age 16 or 17 drops out of school or is declared to be academically deficient due to poor grades, then the school administrator must notify the superintendent of schools who then must notify the Kentucky Department of Transportation that the student has dropped out of school and/or is academically deficient. A student is deemed to have dropped out of school when he has nine or more unexcused absences to include suspensions during a semester. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet then will notify the student that his license to drive a car has been revoked. The student may request a hearing in District Court to attempt to get his license reinstated for good cause shown such as that the student did not drop out or is not academically deficient or that a family hardship situation exists where the license is absolutely necessary. If a student re-enrolls in school, he may apply to have his driver’s license reinstated at the end of the semester during which he re-enrolls. The purpose of the license suspension provisions of course is to discourage kids from dropping out of school. Many students do not drop out of school because of the fear of losing their license or decide to re-enroll in school and/or attend school regularly in order to get their license back after a suspension.

Cap and trade means lights out for small businesses Get ready to pay a whole lot more to keep the lights on. Congress currently is working to pass a huge energy bill. The centerpiece is a system to force energy utilities to purchase government credits to offset their greenhouse gas emissions. This would in effect be an energy tax on the American people as the utilities pass the increased costs along to consumers and small business owners. The plan is called “cap and trade” and it refers to a new trading market that Congress wants to create. The government will set limits on the amount of greenhouse gases businesses are allowed to emit (the “cap”), and then businesses will purchase credits to offset their emissions. Businesses that reduce their emissions below the cap will be free to sell their credits to other businesses (the “trade”), a system with the potential to make trading mortgage derivatives look like a good idea. However, in the initial phases, more than 80 percent of the cred-

its will be given away by the government, rather than auctioned off as originally planned. The credits will go to big businesses hand-picked to garner enough support to pass the bill out of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce. Even President Obama admits current cap and trade proposals will cause energy rates to rise. “Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket,” he told The San Francisco Chronicle last year. At the same time, the House Committee on Ways and Means estimated we would lose anywhere from 1.8 million to 5.3 million jobs. That’s because big businesses will pass the cost on to small businesses and consumers in the form of higher prices. An analysis by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology of a less-restrictive bill in the last Congress estimated

What are your favorite and least favorite memories from your school days? “Being hall monitor, having free roam of the playground which had lots of trees and sandboxes, after lunch you could buy a ticket for a nickel to see a movie in the auditorium (usually it was Laurel and Hardy serials) or you could choose to go to the library instead or you could just go home for lunch. No school buses; we walked come rain, shine, sleet, hail, snow. Our school lunches were 20 cents and all the pies were made there in the kitchen. At one school I attended they were caught serving horse meat for hamburger! I liked art and gym and cooking and shop and hated everything else! If someone disrupted class by misbehaving they were sent down to the office and had their hands/bottom whacked! Sometimes the teacher did it and saved the principal the bother.

electricity rates would go up at least 40 percent. And that would be devastating to small businesses and everyone else in Kentucky. The Heritage Foundation estimates that Kentucky would lose almost 22,000 non-farm jobs in 2012, the first year of the proposed cap-and-trade program. Kentucky’s economy would take a hit, too. The gross state product, the total value of goods and services produced in the state, would plummet by about $1.9 billion, according to Heritage Foundation estimates. As state director of the National Federation of Independent Business, Kentucky’s largest small business association, I want to urge our U.S Senators to oppose cap and trade. We can have a healthy environment and healthy economy, but cap and trade means “lights out” for small business.

Roller Buten go up there all summer and practice?’ You don’t understand until you’re up here. We have fun up here. It’s a great experience. You make lifelong friends here.” The senior tight end/defensive lineman and his teammates have one goal in mind: Bringing home the 19th state title in team history. Currently, the Bluebirds are one behind Trinity for the state record. The past two years, they have tied Trinity only to have the Shamrocks go back in front the next day. Highlands is in line to win three titles in a row for the second time in school history (1998-2000). The Bluebirds would also love to go undefeated for the 12th time in their history (they have the state record). “It’ll be special,” senior lineman Tyler Grubbs said. “To win three in a row, not many teams get a chance to do that. To get 19 and tie the state record, that’s the way to go out. After going through all the stuff you have to do, it will be wonderful to end on that high note.” The Bluebirds are primed for a three-peat as they return their typical blend of size, speed and potential


Highlands senior quarterback Will Bardo looks to be a leading QB in Northern Kentucky. Division I college talent. They have their eye on national rankings as well. “Our guys really have big goals,” Highlands head coach Dale Mueller said. “Our goal is to win the state championship every year and we’re really confident we can do that. When these guys (seniors) were sophomores, that senior class they really looked up to those guys and their work ethic, and it has carried over through their whole career.” Grubbs, one of those seniors, recently committed to Miami University. He didn’t play defense last year but is excited about helping

out on both sides of the ball. “We had a great defensive line class leaving and we needed some more beef on that line, so I wanted to get some important reps and help them out,” he said. “All I want to do is win. I don’t care - I’ll kick the ball, hold the snaps, whatever. I’ll do whatever it takes.” Will Bardo, a 6-foot-4 left-handed quarterback, is poised for a big year in his first year as starter. “He’s taken a big step up,” Mueller said. “He has a great arm, he’s a sprinter. He’ll fit right in with the top Highlands quarterbacks.” One senior who has gained a lot of attention is Austin Collinsworth, who will play running back in addition to defensive back. The son of former Bengal Cris Collinsworth is sought after by high Division I teams. Mueller expects big things from Collinsworth, touted as Mr. Football contender. “Austin is a very special football player,” Mueller said. “He is a highly competitive guy. He is so determined to do everything better than anybody in the country. He is so good at finding the hole and running through it. He makes people miss so well and he is so strong and powerful.” Tyler Fennell is also a returning running back. He had some big games in district play last year. Grubbs, Hunter Schlosser and Tyler Combs are returning starters on the offensive

Camels motivated by late-season swoon By James Weber

On the team


The Camels get ready for a play during a preseason practice.

The Campbell County High School football team faced Simon Kenton to end district play last year with a playoff spot on the line. The Camels lost a tight game to the Pioneers and then watched as SK made a run through the Class 6A playoffs all the way to the state final. Campbell finished 5-5 after losing its last three games. That has been extra motivation for the Camels this year. “Last year was very disappointing,” said Zak Koeninger, a senior offensive lineman/middle linebacker. “We had an excellent team but we just didn’t show up to play when we needed to. I’m not going to allow us to be a .500 team. We’re going to work hard

Junior Nate Geiman is a returning starter at running back and linebacker. “Zak is just a physical specimen,” head coach Troy Styer said. “He’s a force on both sides of the ball, great feet. He’s our heart and soul on defense. He’s very physical.” Junior Michael Kremer returns for his first full year at quarterback after taking over late last season. He had 560 yards passing and six touchdowns. He replaced senior Andrew Eshman, a 6-foot-3 talent who moved to receiver so the Camels could take better advantage of his speed and athleticism. “We’re a better football team with both Kremer and Eshman on the field,” Styer said. “Kremer has had a real nice preseason for us. “Eshman is great athlete, very fluid, very fun to watch. He catches anything we throw at him. He can play outside linebacker more now that he’s not QB.” Senior Austin Johnson

The Camels have to replace four starters on the offensive line, plus skill guys Grant Rose and Tony Bishop. “I really like their attitude,” Styer said. “They’re really working hard and getting after it.

He knows the Camels have to be in top form in the always tough 6A district. “It’s probably the toughest district in the state to make the playoffs out of,” he said. “There’s going to be somebody good sitting at home come playoff time. Just like us and Simon Kenton – we lost in the last minute and a half, and they go all the way to the finals. That very well could have been us.”

There is no question what the first goal is for the Bishop Brossart High School football team – get the first win in varsity history after an 0-20 start the past two years. Second-year head coach Matt Reinhart is not stating the goal in those terms as much as he is emphasizing the process. “We talked about that so much last year, I felt like it was too much pressure on the kids,” he said. “This year we cut back and we just talk about doing the little things right – establish-

If we Crawford can do the small things right, the big things will come.” Brossart lost six seniors and return many Groeschen veterans who have been in the program for four years. Getting that win will be important. Whitford “It’s a big motivation for me because we won’t hear the jokes,” senior lineman Spencer Groeschen said. “Last year we had a bunch of freshmen on the line. Now they have experience, it should be a different ball game. We have speed in the backfield, strength up front and our defense is looking a whole lot better.” On offense, sophomore Jesse Orth enters his first year as starting quarterback. Chris Bowman is a starting running back and the primary pass rusher on defense. Senior Michael Whitford starts at running back and linebacker. Alex Crawford, Matt Kramer and Brian Weckbach also return on the offensive line.


Quarterback Jesse Orth rolls out to pass for Bishop Brossart Aug. 11. Crawford missed last year to injury and is raring to go this season. “We had a weight program this summer, we didn’t last summer,” he said. “That improved us tremendously.” Groeschen, David Lunn, Colton and Conner Boesch, and Kyle Reinhart are the top returners on defense. Coach Reinhart said with 36 players on the team, depth will be an issue, but the team is more equipped to compete this season. An easier schedule on paper looks to be more competitive for the Mustangs as

well. Whenever the first win comes, the Mustangs will love it. “It’ll be a nice feeling,

knowing it will be for the people who have played the last three years and didn’t get the win,” Crawford said.

Veteran Tigers look for playoff run By James Weber

If Austin Lay has anything to do with it, the Bellevue High School football team will be strong this year and carry the name of the city well. “I have a lot of friends in school,” said Lay, a s e n i o r Buckler r e c e i v e r. “You’ve got to be friends in the team. I’ve been a r o u n d teams that ended up fighting. Lay That’s what keeps teams down. Our team isn’t like that; we help each other. We’re representing for our town. Lyvers When we go out somewhere, we have to represent as gentlemen.” Dave Eckstein returns for his fifth year as head coach. The Tigers were 7-4 last year but were upset by Gallatin County in the first round of the 1A playoffs. “This is a veteran team,” he said. “We feel we have an opportunity to have a very good team. It depends on how quickly we progress and how far we progress.” Bellevue returns six starters on both sides of the ball. Eckstein likes the depth and speed of the team, though his main concern is depth on the lines. Senior running back Ricky Buckler returns after rushing for 1,483 yards and 24 touchdowns last year. “We have a lot of experience on this team,” he said. “As a team, I’ve been playing here since I was little.

‘Return to dominance’ key for Newport By James Weber

Nick Rice has been inviting former Newport High School teammates and other alumni to speak to the football team this summer about things such as commitment. Rice, a 1998 Newport graduate, is hoping that helps the Wildcats improve from 5-17 record the past two years, including 4-7 in 2008. “Our biggest thing is trying to change the mentality,” the head coach said. “They’ve been down for the past couple of years. That’s

Dieters Short School, Rice jumped at the chance to lead his alma mater. “It means more to me because I have more ownership,” he said. “This is where I grew up, this is where I learned to be a man. I learned so much from the coaches I had like Roy Lucas (Sr.) and his staff. I feel like I owe it to these guys to do the same for them.” Rice said the team’s biggest strength is speed at the skill positions, and the senior leadership has been a strength by buying into his philosophy. “We’re ready to win, we have a lot of experience,” senior lineman Derrick Dieters said. “Our new coaching staff’s great. They like working with us to make sure we’re a family. There are a lot of new rules for us to go by to make sure we stay together.” Newport returns senior Cody Short at running back, although he will miss several weeks with an ankle injury. “He’s the most disciplined of the kids, never missed a lift all year, tremendous gains in weight room, very committed,” Rice said. “He’s the type of kid you want your kids to be like.” “We’re going to be a lot quicker,” Short said. “We’re better in every aspect of the game.

He was a receiver last year but Rice pressed him into service under center when last year’s starter, Cody Collins, left the sport to focus on basketball. “I’ve never played quarterback, so it’s a learning experience,” Brown said. “I feel my speed can be a factor. If you can outrun anyone, it doesn’t matter how strong you are – you can get the touchdown.” Rice said they saw Meechi had a good arm. “We put two and two together,” Rice said. “You put the most athletic guy

with the best arm at quarterback and you do things you couldn’t do anymore with a pocket passer.” Dieters and Justin Lewis are the leaders on the offensive line. Tim Slusher, the senior fullback, has improved his strength a lot in the offseason. Rice said Dieters is a big vocal leader with a lot of charisma. “I really stepped up this year,” Dieters said. “I started helping people, making sure people are there and doing the right things.” The Wildcats have the letters “RTD” on their practice jerseys, part of their new philosophy. “Return to dominance,”

Greendevils aim for improvement By James Weber

A 2-9 record last year has served as great motivation for the Dayton High School football team. The Greendevils have a more veteran team than last season as they hope to make up for that lack of success. “We have to win as a team,” said senior lineman Anthony Cadle. “Last year we had a lot of individuals and a lack of leadership. This season I hope it all changes around, and through practices this summer, it looks like it has.” Cadle is one of three seniors on a veteran offensive line that has head coach Zach Deaton excited about the team’s ability to score points.

Dayton linemen Anthony Cadle (left) and Christian Lewallen battle with a blocking pad during practice Aug. 11. said. “We should know what our plays are, what our assignments are, work on the little stuff and do that every week and get better every week.” Getting better every week is a matter of Dayton pride, said Cadle.

“You grow up in Dayton, you want to beat Bellevue,” he said. “You walk around, you have everyone asking how is the game, how is the practice, you’re getting bigger, are you starting. It’s all about football around here.”

Visit a “medieval castle” on a high hilltop on 115 secluded and forested acres of the most beautiful area of Southeast Ohiothe Hocking Hills! Owners Sue & Jim Maxwell are creating the most unusual guest experience of stepping back 800 years in a reconstruction of a “12th century Norman castle.” The Maxwells have traveled throughout England & Scotland & have always loved castles & the medieval era. Although the building is new, the couple has been collecting architectural antiques for several years. Each guest room or suite has a stained glass window, usually in the bedroom, a Victorian fireplace mantel with a gas log unit, antique light fixtures and some have beautiful old doors. The wood mouldings around the door & windows & the 5 stairways are inspired by centuries old motifs from Great Britain’s stately homes & castles. Most rooms also have a French door with a balcony, private deck overlooking the forest. There are also “medieval” themed cottages with fireplaces and whirlpools. Ravenwood has
