40 Galileos

Campbell County High School science teacher Rachel Page has scoped out a way to get both her students and the community to looking into the sky. Page was one of 40 essay winners in the Cincinnati Observatory’s 40 Galileos project that awards telescopes to people including librarians, teachers and students with the intent of furthering astronomy education. The program also celebrated the 400th anniversary of Galileo’s scientific use of a telescope, and the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. SCHOOLS, A6

Campbell County has come a long way since its first courthouses, which were log structures, were built in Newport. A groundbreaking held Tuesday, Sept. 1, kicked off a project to renovate and preserve the 125year-old courthouse on York Street and build an additional building, forming the Campbell County Judicial Center. The $29 million project has been in the works for years. “I really want to savor this moment,” said Sen. Katie Stine, who helped with the project. “It’s been a long time coming.” Former Newport Mayor Thomas Guidugli, who now serves as a city commissioner, said the city was happy to work with county officials on the judicial center. “We are happy to have this facility in Newport,” Guidugli said. The judicial center will increase the Campbell County court sys-

By Amanda Joering Alley Not many people in Campbell County can say they have swam 2.4 miles, biked 112 miles and ran 26.2 miles all in the same day. That is, except for Kevin Severs of Newport and Dean Cook of Wilder who competed in the 2009 Ford Ironman competition in Louisville Sunday, Aug. 30.

tem’s efficiency and offer employees the benefits of modern technology, said John D. Minton Jr., Chief Justice of Kentucky, the keynote speaker at the groundbreaking. “Kentucky citizens generate more than one million court cases each year,” Minton said. “Our citizens deserve safe, efficient facilities in which to conduct their business before the courts.” Currently, district court is at a different location on Columbia Street, but the new building will allow the county to have the district and circuit courts located in the same building. The project is being funded by the state Administrative Office of the Courts and is expected to take more than two years to complete.

Dean Cook of Wilder at the Ford Ironman competition in Louisville Sunday, Aug. 30.

Cook, 38, a husband and father of two, said he made the decision to participate in the Ironman after seeing it on television. “It seemed like something I’d like to do, so I got off the couch and started running that day,” Cook said. The running and biking were hard enough, but the swimming posed a different problem for Cook, who didn’t know how to swim. Cook said he took swimming lessons and trained for the three parts of the competition about 20 hours a week for 16 weeks. “The training was actually harder than the race itself,” Cook said. “It gets hard to pull yourself out a bed and do what amounts to a part-time job.” The training paid off, allowing Cook to finish the race in the top 20th percentile with a time of 11 hours and 25 minutes. “Now I’m going to work on getting faster,” Cook said. For 25-year-old Kevin Severs of Newport, the competition was something he’d been preparing for for awhile. A member of the rowing team while in college at Ohio State University, Severs went on to compete in a half Ironman competition, the Flying Pig Marathon and the Chicago Marathon before tackling the Louisville competition. Severs trained with Team Cincy

Express Multisport, a group of people who train together for various activities. “Training with Cincy Express made everything a lot easier because training can be boring when you’re alone,” Severs said. “Plus, I knew about 20 people who did the Ironman race.” After months of training when the big day came, Severs said he concentrated on completing one task at a time.

“It is overwhelming if you try to think about it as one big event, so I thought about making my goal swimming time, then my goal biking time, then my goal running time,” Severs said. Severs crossed the finish line at 11 hours, 20 minutes, also in the top 20th percentile. Severs said he plans to continue to compete in future Ironman competitions throughout the country.

Bellevue holds eighth annual art event By Amanda Joering Alley


Patrons check out various displays at Art in the Park at Bellevue Beach Park.

A Bellevue art event that started in 2000 with six artists has grown to include more than 70 regional artists this year. Bellevue Renaissance’s eighth annual Art in the Park is from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12 at Bellevue Beach Park. The event, which began when local artists starting

talking about putting on an art show, features local arts, crafts, music and food. “We started out pretty small, but the event just keeps growing and has took on a life of its own,” said Barry Baker, one of the founders of the event. “Apparently we’re doing something right.” Baker, an artist who also serves on the event’s planning committee, said the event brings the community

together and supports local art. “It takes a lot to prepare for it, but we have so many people involved to help,” Baker said. Jody Robinson, assistant city administrator in Bellevue, said the Bellevue Renaissance members feel the event is important to the city. “We really believe in the importance of the arts in a community and we have so

many residents and businesses that are involved in art,” Robinson said. During the event, patrons can watch a Shakespeare in the Park production from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. A concert by Leroy Ellington will follow the event at 7 p.m. “It’s going to be a whole day of the arts,” Baker said. For more about this event, contact Jody Robinson at 431-8866.

Replicas of Columbus’ ship to dock in Newport For 10 days, B&B Riverboats in Newport will be the home to a “sailing museum.” Replicas of the Niña and Pinta, two of Christopher Columbus’ ships, will be docked along the Ohio River from Friday, Sept. 18

through Monday, Sept. 28. The ships, built by hand without power tools, are meant to teach people about Caravels, which were Portuguese ships used by early explorers to discover the world, said Morgan Sanger, captain of the ships. “The Caravel was like the space shuttle of the 15th cen-

tury,” Sanger said. “These are pretty amazing ships.” The ships are owned and operated by the Columbus Foundation, which began researching them in 1986 before building the Niña from 1988 to 1991. The foundation later built the Pinta from 2002 to 2005.

“They are the only two 15th century ships that tour in the world,” Sanger said. “Each year that passes they get more popular.” Although both of the ships have engines for when there is no wind, they sail without them as much as possible during the yearround tours, Sanger said.


Replicas of Christopher Columbus’ ships, the Niña and the Pinta, sail together. The ships will be docked at B&B Riverboats in Newport Friday, Sept. 18 through Monday, Sept. 28. While the ships are docked, they are open to the public for walk-aboard, selfguided tours from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The prices are $7 for

adults, $6 for seniors, $5 for children, and children 4 and under are free. For more information visit

USS Nightmare sails into an 18th season Community Recorder contributor

The sight of smoke. The sound of screams. The smell of sweat. The taste of terror. A bad dream this vivid can only mean one thing - The USS Nightmare returns to Newport Sept. 25 to scare the sea sickness out of its guests. What is today called the USS Nightmare was originally a steamboat named the William S. Mitchell. It was built by Martin Marietta Manufacturing Co. of Point Pleasant, W. Va. in 1934 and operated until 1986. After it was decommissioned, the old steamboat was sold with the intention of transforming it into a floating restaurant. However, fate intervened, and the steamboat became a boat that serves

frights instead of food. The William S. Mitchell is a haunted boat with a story that petrifies its guests. Legend has it that on a foggy night the boat’s night watchman was alarmed by sounds, which were strange even for the Mitchell. He was reluctant to alert the Captain, who was below in what he called Pier 51 – a part of the ship where most crew members were not allowed. The night watchman feared that if he disturbed the captain, he might be thrown in the brig, or worse, into the boiler pit from which would mean his demise. Suddenly, a thunderous noise emanated from the boat’s bow. The night watchman sounded the general alarm when he noticed the boat began to

drift into the river current. Capt. Mitchell, with a crazed look in his eyes and something dripping from his fingers, appeared. “You fool,� he screamed as he saw what had happened. He ordered all engines commenced and all hands on deck. The boat was trapped in the main current, careening helplessly into the darkness. The sea caused many violent crashes, followed by the sounds of crunching steel and human bones. The captain, the pilot, and the forward deckhands died first. The surviving crew could not take control of the boat, as it spun downstream in the deadly current and its unknown dangers. A cast of creepy characters, which include Capt. Mitchell, his daughter, Anna, the captain’s estranged brother, Capt. Mitchell’s aging mother, and the Rat Lady, greet the USS Nightmare’s guests aboard the spooky steamboat.

The William Mitchell is turning 75 years old this year and it is our 18th haunted season,� says Allen Rizzo, President of USS Nightmare. “The thrill seeker can immerse themselves in the history of the old boat and the mystery surrounding her crew as they walk through the 30 to 40 minutes tour of the 75-year-old authentic steamboat.�

The sponsors always bring goodies that many seniors enjoy picking up including candy, can and lid openers, and magnetic chip clips. Plus, the picnic is often a place where area politicians to gather and talk to people at the picnic. “If there are politicians there they can come up there and ask them whatever they want,� Dressman said. But mostly, the picnic is a time for folks to come together and socialize who might not get together often, Dressman said. They come from all over the county, and it may be the only time they see each other all year,� she said.

Teacher wins telescope for public views By Chris Mayhew

Campbell County High School science teacher Rachel Page has scoped out a way to get both her students and the community to looking into the sky. Page was one of 40 essay winners in the Cincinnati Observatory’s 40 Galileos project that awards telescopes to people including librarians, teachers and students with the intent of furthering astronomy education. The program also celebrated the 400th anniversary of Galileo’s scientific use of a telescope, and the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. Page, who expects to receive her telescope this fall, said she plans to put the telescope to use with nighttime star viewing events for elementary students in the spring. “We would like to have observatory nights targeting elementary students and using the high school students to help run those star parties,” she said. Page has spent the summer volunteering at the observatory to help with events like star gazing


Campbell County High School teacher Rachel Page is using a telescope on loan in her classes that’s exactly like the one she will receive for being one of the 40 winners of the Cincinnati Observatory’s 40 Galileos program. and training to use the new telescope. Part of Page’s teaching philosophy is letting students experience field work. Something like a telescope helps the students feel more connected to what they are study-

ing, she said. Page spends three weeks teaching space science in her ninth-grade classes. Page was using a telescope on loan from the observatory just like the one she will receive to let students in her ninth-grade science classes see the sun using a special filter outside the high school Wednesday, Aug. 26. “I think that’s how most astronomers started out, they saw something through the telescope and said ‘wow, that’s really cool’ and wanted to check it out more,” she said. “It’s not just textbooks and lab coats.” Allison Franzen, 13, of Alexandria, said she’s thinking of joining the schools astronomy club, and thinks it’s neat to look at constellations and other objects in space. Franzen said she’s also glad Page helped get the telescope for use at the school because not every high school has that opportunity and access. Meagan Mayes, 14, of Alexandria, summed up what she thought of the telescope in three words. “It’s pretty beast,” Mayes said. Beast basically means awe-

Group brings freshman together to do community service projects By Amanda Joering Alley A newly formed local group is hoping to encourage freshman high school students to participate in community service throughout high school. I Am 2013, a non-denominational Christian-based group whose mission is to provide service to the community, offers students at Highlands High School, Newport Central Catholic and Summit Country Day schools a chance to work together through

all four years of high school. “As students get older, there are not as many ways for them to stay connected to God and community service projects,” said Tammy Schroder, who organized the event with Terri Mettens and Julie Dupont. “We wanted to see the kids of different denominations work together.” Schroder said the group will benefit the students and the community, through monthly projects that could range from collecting cell phones for soldiers to volunteering at social service agencies

in the area. “The students will work together and hopefully have fun at the same time,” Schroder said. “They may meet another student that they may not have gotten to know otherwise.” The group is holding a kick-off party for interested freshman at 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 27 at the Southgate Community Center, 301 West Walnut St. For more information call Tammy Schroder 781-2412, Julie Dupont 441-8065 or Terri Mettens 441-4210.

NEWS FROM NKU Leadership training

The Executive Service Corps of Cincinnati, in collaboration with the Northern Kentucky University Institute for Nonprofit Capacity, announced that it will offer five weeks of leadership training for officers of local nonprofit boards starting in October. The program, called the “Officers’ Club,” is developed to bring duty-specific skills and knowledge to board officers. The program is appropriate for current and prospective nonprofit board members. Classes will focus on leadership basics, nonprofit board basics, committees and executive committees,

officer responsibilities, meeting mechanics, parliamentary procedure, governance, succession planning, board assessment, board/staff relations, strategic planning, fundraising and marketing/PR. Patterned after ESCC’s successful training for nonprofit executive directors, this series of classes will run on five consecutive Monday evenings from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., beginning Oct. 5 and continuing through Nov. 2. The Officers’ Club registration fee is $250 per officer, which includes all books and class materials, specialized training by a team of experienced board officers and NKU faculty, and a meal during each session.

Class size is limited, so those interested should reserve a seat today at Registration deadline is Sept. 21.

Award for Nursing Excellence

In conjunction with its 40th Biennial Convention later this year, the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), will present Northern Kentucky University’s Rho Theta Chapter with its second consecutive International Research Advancement Award. With 469 chapters in 86 countries, STTI is the second largest nursing organization in the world. The Chapter Research Advance-

ment Award recognizes chapters that foster STTI goals through significant research-related activities. Rho Theta received their first International Research Advancement Award in 2007 for its role in the development of the Northern Kentucky Nursing Research Collaborative (NKNRC), an organization that provides comprehensive research education, training and support to both academic and community nurses and nursing students throughout Northern Kentucky. Since 2006, the NKNRC has hosted research supportive training events to more than 700 attendees. Events have included annual research poster exhibits of 122 posters showcasing nursing’s signif-

icant contributions to research knowledge and dissemination. Rho Theta will be honored again in October for its supportive role of the NKNRC’s Lead Exposure Control (LEC) Initiative, generously funded by the George A. Renaker Charitable Foundation. The NKNRC works closely with the Northern Kentucky Independent Health Department to provide education, training and support to families of children with identified blood lead levels that are of concern, but too low for state directed home based interventions. The award celebration will occur at STTI’s 40th Biennial Convention in Indianapolis, Ind., Oct. 31 – Nov. 4.

Highlands junior running back Jordan Streeter carries the ball in first half against Beechwood Friday, Sept. 4, at Beechwood.

After two games this season, the Mustangs have already surpassed that figure after a 38-0 win over Bracken County Sept. 5 at Thomas More College. Brossart, now 2-0 after an 0-20 varsity start, plays Jenkins 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12. The game will be at Pendleton County High School because of other games at Newport Stadium that weekend. Brossart has scored 60 points in its two wins. Against Bracken, the Mustangs rolled up 438 yards offense and posted their first-ever shutout. “It means a lot,” sophomore quarterback Jesse Orth said. “We’ve been underestimated and we’re trying to prove a point that we have a team and we’re here to win.” Orth was 11-of-17 passing for 145 yards and two touchdowns, which came in the first quarter to Colton Boesch and Luke Dischar. Chris Bowman had 136 rushing yards and two third-quarter touchdowns to lift Brossart to a 25-0 lead. Andrew Guidugli and Timmy Butts added TD runs in the fourth quarter. Michael Whitford had 85 yards on 11 carries for the game. “We have a lot more capable of doing something and making plays,” Bowman said. “We have a passing game this year. It’s not just one or two guys who get the ball.” Boesch, Matthew Abercrombie and Chris Meehan had interceptions in the second half to help preserve the shutout. “We feel we have one of the better defenses in Northern Kentucky,” head coach Matt Reinhart said. “I knew we could get some things done today.” Reinhart said the win showed Brossart’s progress as a program. “We started slow but we’re a second-half team,” he said. “We’re a lot farther than last year. Last year, they didn’t start football until July 15. They didn’t have spring conditioning, a passing league or winter weights.”

Sibling soccer rivalry enjoyable for family By James Weber

Soccer-playing sisters Grace and Emmie Wyatt separately used the same word to describe their headto-head meeting on the Pendery Park pitch Sept. 1. “I thought it was funny,” Grace said after the game. “Because she’s my sister, I made fun of her when she was playing.” The sisters from Alexandria are seniors on separate teams. Grace’s Covington Latin Trojans faced Emmie’s Bishop Brossart Mustangs in an All “A” Classic regional game in Melbourne. Brossart came away with a 9-1 win to advance in the tourney before losing to Newport Central Catholic in the semifinals. Emmie had a goal and an assist against Covington Latin. The sisters started soccer when they were little and have grown up with the sport. Last week marked the first time they competed against each other. Grace, 15, is two years younger than Emmie. Grace skipped two grades as part of Covington Latin’s advanced academic program, so they will both graduate next spring. Several times during their matchup, the Wyatts contested the ball in the same space. After the game, they made friendly jabs at each other over different plays. “She got called twice for pushing me,” Grace said, a fact Emmie disputed with a smile.


The Wyatt family and supporters wore special T-shirts for the game between sisters Emmie and Grace.


Grace Wyatt of Covington Latin (left) defends sister Emmie Wyatt of Bishop Brossart during their soccer game between Covington Latin and Bishop Brossart Sept. 1. “It was fun,” Emmie said. “It’s never a dull moment with us. We make fun of each other like sisters.” Several family members and supporters attended the game wearing T-shirts with a picture of the sisters together, the phrase “Bishop Latin” on the front and

“Wyatt” on the back. “It was exciting to see them play against each other in their senior year,” said their mother, Angie Wyatt. “They’re very competitive with each other, but they love each other very much.” Grace has been the second-leading scorer the past

two years for the Trojans, behind senior Beth Whitacre, who could crack the 100-goal mark for her career this season. The loss to Brossart was the only blemish in the Trojans’ 4-1-1 start. Emmie is one of eight seniors for the Mustangs (3-5-1). “She’s been very important as a leader,” said head coach Andy Deimling. “She was a little bit tentative today because of her sister, but she has been a fantastic leader and a big part of helping us get to where we are.”

On August 29, 2009, Boy Scout Troop 751 completed a 10mile cleanup. A total of 23 volunteers showed up to help pick up trash around a loop in Campbell County. It was very different for us to throw away somebody's litter and now we know that throwing away our trash and recycling is very helpful to both our enviroment and our own health. It was a great opportunity for the volunteers and the Troop as a whole. Zack Lanham Boy Scout Troop 751

‘Calm, serious discussion’ needed on health care I was a licensed insurance agent for over 20 years. At the end of career and for a 20 year period I dealt with a terminal illness. I received excellent care and had very good insurance which covered 80 to 90 percent of my medical expenses. My life was saved by a heart transplant in 1994. With this perspective I still see an urgent need for health care reform. In our present system the consumer or patient needs a lot of luck. This is why I believe that about 50 percent of the American population says they are satisfied with their current health care coverage. People have about a 50-50 chance of getting the care and coverage they really need. In other words, you cannot be unlucky and lose your job and/or your coverage just when a serious illness occurs. You cannot get caught with preexisting conditions when your employer decides to change health insurance or the insurer decides to pull out of your region of the country. If you do not have adequate insurance, you have to raise at least $90 to $100,000 to be placed on a transplant list. Some people do not have the talent or connections to pull that off. I had excellent insurance and my family, friends, church and community raised $30,000 for me. After five years of illness plus five years of waiting on the list and four to five years of recuperating from the transplant, I still owe $52,000. I have had to file bankruptcy twice in a 20-25 year period because of my medical expenses






and being unable to work due to my medical condition. People facing death and/or chronic long term illness tend to pay the heath care providers first and let other bills mount up. The insurance industry as a whole is a solid icon of American entrepreneurship. However, the health care wing of the industry has a checkered past. When I went into the business in the early 1960s, I worked for a small Cincinnati-based company that just got into providing health insurance. As one of the wags on our staff used to day, “we had a sick and accident policy,” “if you get sick, it’s an accident if you get paid.” My point is we need a calm, serious discussion on health care reform. We will not be able to do that with people screaming “socialism” at the top of their lungs and scaring the heck out of people. In this long journey I have learned a few things. Pay your regular bills first and your health care provider last. I find it much easier to deal with the government bureaucrats than with corporate bureaucrats. It should not be assumed that purely privately run health insurance is the best. Remember most seniors would not part with their Medicare. Medicare is government run health care.

Employers, employees should make health care choices – not government

The Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and its members are dedicated to improving our nation's health care system. We support ongoing, thoughtful debate on health care and urge Congress to focus on consensus areas that accomplish shared goals. Chief among these goals should be initiatives to reduce costs and provide a robust marketplace for consumers. Unfortunately, Congressional leaders are acting quickly in an effort to push through a political solution to our current health care system that not only fails to reduce cost but which will harm American employers and their employees and families. Our members have been telling us for years that health care costs are out of control and are their primary constraint on economic growth and job creation. Some of the factors that contribute to high cost and rapid medical inflation are complex and require reasoned discussion and analysis. But some of the factors are blatantly obvious and have relatively simple remedies. The Northern Kentucky Chamber supports immediate low-cost reforms to health care that include: medical liability reform; the increased use of health information technology; incentives for wellness and prevention; administrative simplification; and combating fraud and abuse. By implementing reforms of this nature, congress would bend the cost curve without spending a trillion dollars or raising taxes. The Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce also believes it is imperative that employers and their employees have the freedom to work together to develop the best health care plan to meet the unique needs of their company and its employees. An employer mandate, also known as “pay or play,” would force employers to provide “one size fits all” insurance or face an 8 percent (for starters) payroll tax. Many in Washington speak of the need for employers to take a “shared responsibility” in providing health care. The notion that

employers are not sharing responsibility is disingenuous at best. In fact, employers know all too well the challenges facing our health care system. year, Gary Beatrice Every employers volunCommunity tarily pay more Recorder than $500 billion guest for health insurto 160 milcolumnist ance lion Americans. The Chamber believes that an employer mandate will likely lead to lower wages and job loss. Unemployment in this region is already at 11 percent and families can ill afford policies that will threaten their wages and jobs. The Chamber supports providing a vibrant marketplace for individuals and businesses to seek health care options. Many in Congress are singing the praises of a “public option,” a government-run health insurance plan to “compete” with private insurers. The public option would have a tremendous advantage over private insurance plans and would be anything but a legitimate competitor, as the government would both own the competition and set the rules for the insurance industry. A government plan, unlike an employer-sponsored plan, can exempt itself from federal taxes and state regulations and force hospitals to accept submarket reimbursements. How is that legitimate competition? How could this not quickly dissolve into a single government sponsored system? The 800-pound gorilla in the room is the cost for this proposed plan. The price tag is somewhere between $1 trillion and $1.5 trillion. A suggested “surtax” on the wealthiest will directly hit the bottom lines of small businesses that pay their business taxes at a personal rate. At a time when we most need our nation's small businesses to create jobs, current health care reform proposals would tax job creators out of exis-

Congress is also considering taxing health benefits, which are currently tax-exempt. This would be a significant change to tax policy that would have lasting negative ramifications to employers and employees. The Chamber believes meaningful health reform can happen and we support the debate. Lowering the cost and slowing the rate of medical inflation are key components to a strong rebound from the current recession. We believe that this can be accomplished by building on what works and fixing what's broken. We believe that much can be accomplished by making the easy fixes, grabbing the “low hanging fruit.” The business community has always developed new and innovative ways to solve problems and the Chamber will continue to offer solutions and provide leadership that moves our region forward. Gary Beatrice, president of Business Benefits/Hammerlein Garner, is president of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question

What do you think is the enduring legacy of Ted Kennedy? “A Catholic who supported abortion!” N.G.

“Ted Kennedy was not my favorite person, but he had a quality which I praise – he loved his family! – especially his nieces and nephews. I don’t know anyone who has been such an example for encouragement to a family who lost so many parents, grandparents, etc. in death. He kept close to them through ‘thick and thin’ and good and bad times, making an extremely close family. Today, we rarely see families stick together, cherishing each other – like it was before World War II

happened, when the men left the family to go to war for our country, women began working to make ends meet, then after the war, many left for other places in the U.S. to find jobs. It was then when family members began leaving their roots to find jobs. Maybe I am wrong, but I think children need every family member to set the right example, to teach them faith in God and faith in one another, and to love one another unconditionally.” W.R. “The enduring legacy of Ted Kennedy is that, for most of his adult life, he was a drunken skirtchaser whose politics were way to the left of mainstream Americans. He ran off a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island with a young lady in his car. He left her to drown while he escaped, ran

home to sober up, and surrounded himself with an army of lawyers before notifying the authorities. Anyone but a privileged Kennedy would have served some serious prison time for this major indiscretion. The people of Massachusetts should be ashamed for returning this despicable human to Congress. Ted Kennedy is the perfect example of why we need term limits.” William E. Stewart “Teddy was an extreme left wing radical! He was the cause of a young lady dying when he ran off a bridge and she drowned. He sobered up and later revealed the accident. If I remember right he received a six months suspended sentence. I’m sure the Kennedy’s paid the girl’s family off in order keep him from being sued. There is no doubt that he could not been

re-elected to the Congress if he had been from most if not all of the other states. This just goes to show you that money can take care of most everything.” J.L. “Ted Kennedy was a boozer and womanizer – did little of value with his time in the Senate and now they want to canonize him. There is no enduring legacy. Give me a break!” R.A.V. “Setting aside any preconceived notions about the ‘Kennedy Dynasty,’ it’s hard to imagine any intelligent citizen – Democrat, Republican or Independent – not recognizing the amazing volume of lifetime contributions made by this great American patriot and statesman.

Next question Should there be laws banning all use of cell phones while driving? Why or why not? Send your response to with “chatroom” in the subject line. “Sure, Ted Kennedy had some ‘shady’ events in his past, just like any other politician under the media’s intense microscope. But as a long-term senator, he has made major changes in the laws affecting the rights, values and freedoms of so many Americans. “His commitment to just American politics is unmatched. There’s great sadness in the loss of the last of the Kennedy brothers - he will be sorely missed. M.M.

Zink’s reward is happy homes for pets

Kate Zink of Camp Springs spends her day caring for hospitalized children, and her evenings rescuing stray animals. Zink, a nurse and massage therapist at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, founded Rescue Our Shelter Animals & Strays (ROSA’S) in 2003 with a friend after spending time volunteering at Campbell County’s animal shelter. Zink also works with people adopting from ROSA’S, teaching them to avoid behavior issues and helping them understand a

Zink does everything from taking care of ROSA’S Web site to training volunteers willing to foster pets in their home and training

fostered dogs before they are adopted, said Kathy Thacker of Alexandria, ROSA’S secretary. “A lot of these animals come in with behavioral problems to begin with, that's why people give them up or take them to the pound, they don’t know how to handle them,” Thacker said.

Zink was honored for her work with ROSAS on 55KRC - 550 AM Radio Tuesday, Aug. 25 as an IGA and 55KRC Hometown Hero. Zink received $550 for the award, which she is donating back into ROSA’S. It’s a group effort, and volunteers to take foster animals in before they are adopted, are always needed, Zink said. “Just to watch an animal connect with a family is all the reward I need,” Zink said.

Playing hide-and-seek, but not really seeking All humans live in hiding from themselves. That’s one of Albert Camus’ central insights about human nature. We practice what psychology calls repression and denial – thereby remaining unconscious to who we really are. Why hide certain experiences or realities of our life? We fear it would be too difficult or frightening dealing with them. We prefer, as Kierkegaard puts it, to tranquilize ourselves with the trivial. Hiding strong personal elements from ourselves is usually futile. They keep trying to get our attention. They express themselves through symptoms such as anxiety, stomach trouble, insomnia, headaches, irritation or depression. True, some depression comes from chemical imbalances and must be treated with medication. But another kind of depression can be

caused by pushing down and away i.e. depressing, unwelcome feelings. One of the strange things about our feelings is, however, that we can’t just bury the unpleasant ones and keep the pleasant ones. They’re all intertwined. Bury anger and we bury the potential for joy; bury sexuality and we bury spontaneity; bury conflict and we bury peace of mind. Symptoms of hidden and scary feelings tap on the walls of our minds and bodies as if to say, “You can’t lead a full life unless you deal with me and achieve a certain understanding of me as part of your life.” Those of us who have been abused or neglected, bruised or wounded by significant others, must come face to face with our pain and the truth about the whole situation. Understanding the truth will help set

us free. It’s difficult for us, but doing so begins healing and integration. Often, facing what we’ve kept hidden is best accomplished with the assistance of a competent professional counselor. One example of the hidden being revealed occurred when I was pastor and a young woman made an appointment. During it she denounced her current boyfriend and his interest in sex. She showed me newspaper articles confirming her belief that our culture is too permissive and men are the villains causing it all. She wanted me to write about it and preach about it to my parishioners. It was her growing intensity, her insistence and deepening rage that led me to suspect there was much more to her concerns. After a long

period of listening, I asked her gently, “Would you be willing to tell me what happened to you? Did someone hurt you or frighten you?” What followed was a profound change in her behavior. She stared into space in silence. Then, with contorted face, an angry snarl in her voice, she whispered, “I was raped when I was 18, and by damn, no man will ever have that power over me again!” With some relief, she said she had hidden and denied that fact for years. She tried – and for a while it worked – to consider that trauma as just a nightmare. She never wondered why she was not able “to find the right guy” with whom to consider marriage. Her repressed fear of sex and anger at men were affecting her life tremendously. From that point on she was will-

ing to confer with a psychologist and work through the bruFather Lou tal disrespect Guntzelman forced on her by Perspectives her attacker.A healthier life was ahead for her. She proved more courageous than most people are wont to be in facing what’s hidden inside. Too many of us fulfill Camus’ claim that most humans live in hiding from themselves. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Reach him at columns@community or contact him directly at P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242.

It’s all a piece of pie this week

I guess I should call this week’s column the “Pie Issue.” I’ve been asked by several Kentucky readers to clone Maysville’s most famous transparent pie made by McGee’s Bakery. And a reader on the northern side of the river has been clamoring for Jimmy Gherardi’s e m o n Rita lblueberry Heikenfeld pie. First, Rita’s kitchen the story about McGee’s. I stopped in their bakery last year and got several items including their transparent pie. The recipe is secret so I can’t tell you how I sleuthed information but will tell you my “anonymous source” said McGee’s uses powdered milk. Now most transparent pies call for cream or milk so I have no idea how true the

powdered milk theory is, but it’s plausible for sure when baking in large amounts. Anyway, I ran into Nick Clooney last year when we were both on Fox 19’s morning show. Nick said he thought his brother had a recipe similar to McGee’s. Nick and I lost touch so I never did get the recipe in my hot little hands. The recipe I’m sharing is so delicious and almost dead-on McGee’s – and as close as I’m ever going to get to it. Jimmy’s pie, on the other hand, was a cinch to get. He is so generous when it comes to sharing recipes so I’ve got his authentic one to share here.

Transparent pie close to McGee’s

Originally from Martha Jane Zeigler, a Batavia resident and fine baker. Now this isn’t the prettiest pie – the filling isn’t real high but is so enticingly sweet and good you’ll

understand when you take a bite. A thick filling would just be too much. Now if all you have is dark Karo, that should be OK too. I’ve adapted this slightly from her original recipe. 1 pie shell 1 stick butter, room temperature (salted or unsalted is OK) 2 cups sugar 1 tablespoon flour 1 tablespoon vanilla 1 ⁄2 cup half & half 3 large eggs, lightly beaten 2 teaspoons cider vinegar 1 tablespoon clear Karo syrup

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Beat butter and sugar until mixture is fairly fluffy. Add rest of ingredients and blend well. Don’t worry if it looks curdled. Pour into pie shell. Bake 10 minutes at 400 degrees, then turn oven down to 325 degrees and bake for about 40 to 50 minutes more, or

until pie has set. Awesome with a dollop of whipped cream.

Chef Jimmy Gherardi’s lemon sour cream blueberry pie

For reader Cathy Grosse who told me she’s tried to duplicate “but have only nearly got it – worth stuffing myself for.” Cathy wanted to wish Jimmy well and thinks, like I do, that Jimmy is a wonderful and caring person. 1 cup sugar 1 ⁄4 cup all purpose flour 1 ⁄4 cup cornstarch 1 ⁄2 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄2 cup sour cream 1 ⁄2 cup water 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 6 egg yolks 1 ⁄3 cup fresh or organic bottled lemon juice Whipped cream Fresh or thawed frozen blueberries or blueberry syrup. Place sugar, flour, corn-

starch and salt in saucepan. Whisk. Add sour cream and water. Whisk until smooth. Place on stove top over medium heat and stir until thickened. Remove from heat and add butter. Stir until melted and well combined. Stir in yolks, Keep stirring until well combined – don’t worry if butter is floating around. Place back on heat and stir constantly until mixture is well combined and thick again. Stir in juice and keep stirring until it becomes thick and starts to hold its shape. Remove from heat and pour into prepared pie crust. Allow to cool completely at room temperature, then place in fridge until cold. Top with as much whipped cream, berries, etc. as you want.

Chocolate zucchini bread/cake huge hit

Learn & Serve Grant


Highland Heights Curves Location

Kentucky Campus Compact (KyCC), in partnership with Ohio Campus Compact (OCC) and Michigan Campus Compact (MCC), announced that the consortium has been awarded a Learn and Serve America Higher Education grant in excess of 1.4 million ($482,000 per year for three years) from the Corporation for National and Community Service. The grant will fund Kentucky, Ohio and Michigan

Campus Compacts’ Project: Pay it Forward: Strengthening Communities through Student-Led Philanthropy. Kentucky, Ohio and Michigan, like many other states, continue to face unprecedented unemployment rates, home foreclosures and a rapidly growing number of individuals turning to charities for help. At a time when giving to nonprofits and charities is at an all-time low, these organizations are finding themselves severely challenged to meet the growing demands for their services. Unprecedented circumstances call for innovative solutions. Kentucky Campus Compact is a coalition of 21 Kentucky college and university presidents and their campuses, established in 2005 in order to increase campuswide participation in public and community service and to integrate service-learning as a valued element of undergraduate education. Kentucky Campus Compact is the only statewide organization whose sole mission is to foster, promote, organize and develop awareness of and involvement in public and community service, including volunteerism and service linked to the curriculum, by students, staff and faculty at institutions of higher education in the state of Kentucky. Each year, KyCC provides technical assistance and support to hundreds of staff and faculty through on-campus workshops and trainings and direct support of member campuses’ community service offices, faculty departments and student organizations. Since 2006, KyCC has provided over $200,000 in grants to member campuses for the support and enhancement of community service/service-learning. For more information, visit


The Northern Kentucky University Program for Talent Development and Gifted Studies ExploreMore! Program is now accepting applications for its fall session. Held on the school’s Highland Heights campus, this opportunity is geared to talented and gifted students in grades K-8. The fall 2009 ExploreMore! Enrichment Program will run for six consecutive Saturdays beginning Sept. 26 and concluding Oct. 31. The program offers a broad range of courses. Qualified students will have the opportunity to select an interactive, hands-on course that matches their interests and abilities. Class sizes are limited to provide an optimum learning environment. Classes focus on a central theme and are designed to allow students to explore their natural curiosities with children of similar abilities. Applications are available at 09exploremorefallbrochure.p df. All applications must be postmarked by Sept. 11. For more information, contact the NKU Program for Talent Development and Gifted Studies at 859-572-1957 or

Grant for math teachers

A National Science Foundation Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program grant funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will help Northern Kentucky University and the Kentucky Center for Mathematics prepare more high school mathematics teachers. Under the program, NKU will select talented undergraduate students interested in mathematics education

and prepare them to be fully qualified, well-prepared teachers who will teach secondary mathematics in highneed schools. In addition to the scholarship funding, these students will be provided with on-going support during their early teaching years. The grant, totaling $897,690, will create at least 28 scholarships over the course of the five-year program for talented NKU students interested in teaching mathematics at the secondary level. Scholarships will be at least $10,000 per recipient and will be available to junior mathematics majors who plan to teach at the high school level. The scholarships will be renewable for one year.

Service-Learning Institute

Kentucky Campus Compact, in partnership with Louisiana Campus Compact, held a train-the-trainer institute Aug. 5-6 to promote service-learning in higher education. The institute, funded through a Learn & Serve Grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service, was held in Baton Rouge, La. The Service-Learning Train-the-Trainer Institute helps increase the capacity of colleges/universities to implement service-learning into academic courses by increasing the skills of faculty and helping them to understand the use of this methodology. Each Institute participant is expected to conduct two service-learning trainings for faculty on their own campuses. For additional information regarding Kentucky Campus Compact, visit or call 859-572-7614.

Only one time, in the entire bible, is the question asked. “What must I do to be saved?” (Acts 16:30). In the next verse (Acts 16:31) the question is answered, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt


be saved, and thy house.”

Hell’s Hot Life’s Short Death’s Sure Eternity’s Long and “There Ain’t No Exits In Hell.” NO MAN KNOWS, HOW SOON IT IS TOO LATE “Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His Name in vain.” Exodus 20:7 Any way that you use God’s Name, the Lord’s Name, Jesus’ Name, other than in a Holy manner, is taking His Name in vain.


Needy children open up their shoeboxes provided by Operation Christmas Child inside a church on the outskirts of Lima Peru. An estimated 100 children received a shoebox, which included hygiene items, school supplies and small toys.

Local residents to help children Area residents will help bring joy this Christmas by simply packing and collecting shoebox gifts for children through Operation Christmas Child. Main Street Baptist Church in Alexandria will receive gift-filled shoeboxes at the Calvin Perry Community Center during Operation Christmas Child’s National Collection Week, Nov. 1623, 2009. This location will be open Monday-Friday 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Sunday 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and Monday 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. The community is invited to a kick off luncheon Sept. 19 at 11:30 a.m. at the community center. Livia Satterfield a shoebox recipient from Romania will be the featured speaker. Cost is $4. For reservations 6350228. Satterfield will also be speaking at both services at

the Main Street Baptist Church that Sunday. Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse, the international Christian relief organization headed by Franklin Graham. Children, families, churches and groups fill empty shoeboxes with toys, school supplies, hygiene items, photos and personal letters, and Operation Christmas Child delivers them around the world to girls and boys suffering from poverty, war, disease, disaster and terrorism. Operation Christmas Child has handed out more than 46 million gift-filled shoeboxes since 1993 and last year reached over 7.6 million children in more than 100 countries. This is Alexandria Community Center’s eighth year as a collection center. This location hopes to collect

14,000 shoebox gifts from Alexandria residents and the surrounding area this year. Collection center relays are also located in neighboring counties. For information and hours, call 1-800435-2649. “It is a real joy to serve as a collection site for Operation Christmas Child shoe box gifts,” said Pam Kinney, Northern Kentucky Area Team Coordinator. “This is a great opportunity to involve the whole community in a project that touches the lives of children a world away from us. “For most of their lives, these children have only known suffering and hurt, so the opportunity to reach them and their families through a simple shoe box is a privilege.”

For God so loved the worlds, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believed in Him Should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 Acts 2:21 And Romans 10:13 indicate that “whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” In the next verse, Romans 10:14 it says, “How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed?” Believing precedes calling upon The name of the Lord. Jesus Himself said in John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” God reaffirms this truth in I Timothy 2:5 saying “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” When someone says “repeat this prayer after me to be saved” it is making people feel like they have to “do” something to be saved, other than believing. If someone is asked to say a prayer to be saved, the person who says the prayer is still on his way to hell, after repeating the prayer, if he hasn’t believed in his heart. Nowhere in the Bible is it found that a person has to pray a prayer to be saved. God does not hear a prayer unless you go to God in the name of Jesus Christ, The Only Mediator between God and man. Jesus Christ is not your Mediator unless he is your Lord and Savior. So according to God, the steps are, first, you believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. By believing as Acts 16:31 indicates, you are saved! Acts 16:30,31 is the only time in the Bible where the question is asked, “what must I do to be saved?” God answering through Paul said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved. By being saved, Jesus Christ is your Lord, Savior, and Mediator between God and your self. Now you can pray to God, because you have the Mediator, Jesus Christ. I believe that when a person “prays” to God, without being saved, his prayer goes no higher than the ceiling, and God probably says, “Who do you think you are, to think that you can come to Me, without coming to Me in the only possible way that I have set out in My Word? For you come to Me, through My Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, the One and Only Mediator between you and Me.” You don’t just pull Jesus Christ out of the air, and say today I want You to get me to God, by my go-between for God! It doesn’t work that way. Jesus Christ is either your Lord and Savior, making Him your Mediator, or, if Jesus Christ is not your Lord and Savior. He is not your Mediator. I believe it is very important to stress that you are saved by believing only. John 3:16, probably the most quoted verse in the Bible, says that, “whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Again, this passage clearly prescribes believing, not repeating a prayer. In Jon 3:4, Nicodemus asks Jesus, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into this mother’s womb, and be born?” He was asking this in regard to Jesus’ statement in John 3:3, that a man needs to be born again Jesus’ answer in John 3:5 and following is “Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” Nowhere does Jesus say, pray to be saved, it is always believe. Years ago, I heard Dr. Donald Grey Barnhouse say “I’m deeply offended when I hear a prayer that does not end with the idea that God must be approached only through the Name and the Being of the Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 1:13 says “In whom (Christ) ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise.” Romans 10:9 tells us “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hat raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth (first) unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession (next) is made unto salvation.” How many people have gone to hell or are going to hell by putting their trust in the ungodly “pray the sinners prayer” or “repeat this prayer after me”, instead of believing John 3:36: “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” Luke 23:39-43 tells us “And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, if thou be Christ, save thyself and us.” But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.” In these verses in Luke, we see that a man was saved by believing only. The malefactor did not, and was not instructed by Jesus, to pray, to receive salvation. He said unto Jesus, “Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verify I say unto thee, today shalt thou be with me in paradise.” You don’t fool Jesus. Jesus knew that this man believed in Him; that this man believed that this Jesus that he was talking with was the Lord, The Messiah, the Only Begotten Son of God, the Savior, and in believing, the man was saved. Now if you think that you have to pray first; repeat, first, or anything first, before believing, why did Jesus tell him “today thou shalt be with Me in paradise?” OR if there is a need to do for anything to go along with believing believing, why didn’t Jesus tell him what that was? Jesus doesn’t make mistakes! God’s Word is true. You don’t (really you can’t), add to or take away from God’s Word, and it be true. Just leave His Word alone, and do what God said, believe, Psalm 119:89” “For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.” Revelations 22:18,19” For/testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, if any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” Take your Bible and check the references that we contained herein—nothing added to and nothing taken away; and when you hear “the plan of salvation” from anyone, get your Bible out and see if it is God speaking or “someone’s” idea. I can’t see “ten steps” to salvation, I can see only one step: believe. The malefactor on the cross had but one step, and he took it. You, I, we all have “one step,” believe. Please take it, and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ for your salvation. All Scripture references are from The King James Version, (Cambridge, Cambridge) 1789.

Bed & Breakfast Feature of the Week

The Doolin House Bed & Breakfast

There is a joke among friends here, “It’s a Phoenix that has risen from the ashes. ”When Charles and Allison Hahn Sobieck purchased the property at 502 North Main Street (in Somerset, Kentucky), there was a lot of work to be done, to say the least. With the vision of a B & B and a home in ruins, there were little choices. The dilapidated structure was removed, then reconstructed as it had been in the 1850’s. It’s a brand new home. A bit of an unusual concept for a bed and breakfast. “We reconstructed the home from scratch. This gave us the benefit of designing every amenity possible along the way, ”said Allison Sobieck, owner. Every room is equipped with many amenities you don’t often find in a traditional bed and breakfast, but rather a fine hotel. Every room has a full sized closet with a pair of micro-fiber robes hanging in them, 400- count Egyptian cotton sheets, cable TV with DVD players, queen sized beds, and a host of other things. For instance, 2 rooms have gas fireplaces and 3 rooms have whirlpool tubs. We even offer many add on amenities such as massage, dinner, flowers, etc…

The rooms are only half of the reason to come to The Doolin House. Owners Charles and Allison just happen to both be chefs. Some of the breakfast specialties include Caramel Banana French Toast and Southern Eggs Benedict (2 fried green tomatoes topped with 2 slices of smoked bacon, 2 eggs over easy and Hollandaise). Chuck is usually in charge of breakfast and tries to do new and different things every day. Chef Chuck pointed out, “It’s fun to experiment with breakfast. It’s the one meal that encompasses all foods. It’s perfectly acceptable to see smoked salmon or a pork cutlet at the breakfast table. ”For those in no rush to rise and shine, breakfast in bed is served at no additional charge. When you need a weekend get away that’s not too far from home or you are planning your summer vacation to beautiful Lake Cumberland, remember that The Doolin House Bed and Breakfast is only a phone call away.
