U.S. 27 widening nearly complete By Chris Mayhew

GRANTS LICK — Construction to widen U.S. 27 to four lanes around the Grants Lick area, started in fall of 2009, is expected to be complete in October. The work will complete the widening of U.S. 27 to four lanes

throughout southern Campbell County from Highland Heights almost to the border of Pendleton County. The $26.5 million project will widen 2.4 miles of highway from two to four lanes south from Race Track Road past Nagel Road. The project was paid fully by the federal stimulus under the 2009 Amer-

ican Recovery and Reinvestment Act, said Nancy Wood, spokesperson for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s District 6 office. Eaton Asphalt Paving Co. of Covington, won the low-bid contract. The expected completion date for the project when it started in September 2009 was November 2012, Wood said. The contractor

expects to have the road completed and possibly ready to drive upon in early October, she said. “They might not be completely finished by that time frame, but they should have the bulk of it done,” she said. Once the contractors are finished, the Transportation Cabinet will plant grass, clean up, and in-

stall signage, Wood said. The contractors on the project have finished the bridges on the 2.4-mile section and are in the process of adding a base layer of pavement, Wood said. “And then it will be the final surface, which is the smooth rideable part,” she said.


Heroin doesn’t discriminate Former addicts share their stories By Amanda Joering

Resident honors friend with 5K By Amanda Joering

For nearly two years, Southgate resident Mindy Laber watched her friend and coworker, Morgan Alloway, battle lung cancer. Alloway, a non-smoking mother of two young girls, was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer at age 29. Less than two years later, Alloway lost her battle with lung cancer and passed away Oct. 1, 2010. “She really fought so hard, it was heartbreaking, but encouraging,” Laber said. “It was an inspiration to watch her fight.” The death of Alloway, who Laber worked with at Acosta Sales and Marketing, really hit home for Laber, who is also a mother of two young girls. “Lung cancer just takes so many lives,” said Laber, who pointed out that lung cancer is

the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. Laber said, after her diagnoses Alloway participated in Free to Breathe, a series of National Lung Cancer Partnership events held throughout the nation to create awareness and raise money for lung cancer research and education. While events are held in various places around the country, Cincinnati didn’t have its own event, Laber said. “So many people in this area have been affected by lung cancer, we just thought that Cincinnati should have its own event,” Laber said. Laber, along with some of Alloway’s other friends, set out to plan the Free to Breathe Cincinnati 5K Run/Walk to support the cause and honor their friend. The first event was held on Oct. 1, 2011, exactly one year after Alloway’s death.

“This is our way of honoring her,” Laber said. “This event helps bring hope and a feeling that we’re fighting the good fight.” Last year’s event had 350 participants and raised about $30,000 for the National Lung Cancer Partnership, and Laber said this year’s event will be bigger and better. The second annual event, being held at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 6 at Acosta Sales and Marketing, 3 Crowne Point Ct., in Cincinnati, will include a 5K Run/Walk, one-mile memorial walk, kid’s dash, a performance by the Northern Kentucky University cheerleaders and a rally featuring speeches from lung cancer survivors.

Every day, people throughout Northern Kentucky are struggling to fight a war. These people aren’t soldiers, and their enemy isn’t someone else, but it’s killing people throughout the area. From teenagers and college students to white-collar workers and older adults, people from all walks of life are fighting against their addiction to heroin. “Heroin is the great equalizer, it doesn’t discriminate,” said Dr. Mina “Mike” Kalfas, a local family practitioner who also specializes in addiction treatment. Cold Spring resident Jordan Finn, 22, knows all too well about battling heroin addiction, something that has affected him and several of his friends. For Finn, who came from a good family, attended Newport Central Catholic and got good grades, the battle began in college, when curiosity and a desire to experiment led him to try heroin. “I wasn’t depressed or anything, I just wanted to have fun,” Finn said. “I tried it once, then didn’t do it again for a while.” Finn said at first, he would do heroin once every couple months, just for fun. But soon, the fun stopped and the addiction began. “Every couple months went to once a month, then every other week,” Finn said. “It just started to occupy my mind all the time.” Soon, Finn was at the point that he was doing heroin every day, and could see the downward spiral of addiction taking over his life and the lives of his friends. “I never resorted to stealing, but I sold a lot of my possessions,” Finn said. “I justified it and told myself I didn’t have a problem because I wasn’t as bad as some of my friends.” Eventually, Finn said he had a breakdown and decided to quit.

Something that was easier said than done. After a brief time off heroin, Finn said he relapsed and was quickly right back where he had been. “I didn’t want to be an addict and tried really hard not to be,” Finn said. “But, heroin was the way I coped with life, and I couldn’t imagine my life without it.” Earlier this year, Finn realized he needed help and went to his father, who helped him get into a medical detox center. After detox, Finn started attending 12-step meetings several times a week and has been sober for more than four months.

Lifelong battle

For recovering addict Allyssa Bujdoso of Highland Heights, life changed the first time she tried heroin. While attending Northern Kentucky University in 2005, Bujdoso found herself having a hard time with her family, school and life in general. While she didn’t have much experience with drugs, she was offered heroin and decided to try it. “I was a child, I didn’t think about the consequences. I just didn’t want to feel the way I felt inside anymore,” Bujdoso said. “I tried it once, and I was hooked.” Bujdoso said her addiction progressed quickly, leading her to start shooting up heroin.

Retirements created sheriff’s office void By Chris Mayhew

NEWPORT — With tax bills needing to be mailed, the sudden retirement of the top three people in the Campbell County Sheriff’s office effective Aug. 1 left holes county leaders scrambled to fill. Sheriff John Dunn, his

office’s chief deputy, finance manger, and office manager all retired effective Aug.1. A fifth person in the sheriff’s office, not in management, retired after Aug. 1. In addition to appointing David Fickenscher as interim sheriff Aug. 1, Campbell County Judge-executive Steve Pendery asked county fiscal director Jim Seibert to resign and take a job handling the sheriff’s finances. Seibert resigned from the fiscal court effec-

One semester, she received a financial aid check for about $9,000 and spent almost all of it on heroin within two months. In 2007, Bujdoso moved in with her mother in New York to try to get away from heroin. After a 30-day stay at a

tive July 31after10 years in his post. The sheriff’s office collects taxes for all the taxing districts in the county, and Seibert was brought in for the interim “to see to it that things run smoothly,” Pendery said during the Aug. 15 fiscal court meeting after accepting Seibert’s resignation from the county. “The top of the heap” of the sheriff’s department all retired at once, Pendery said. “So, we decided it was a

management imperative to delegate one of our folks in order to help out with the situation,” he said. Fickenscher said he chose not to hire a chief deputy so the new sheriff can choose their own person. The “vast” duties of the chief deputy have been divided amongst the senior deputies for now, he said. Fickenscher said he and Seibert took over the office as tax season started. The sheriff’s office will send out 38,000 tax bills Nov. 1,

he said. Fickenscher said he is considering the possibility of automating the office’s tax collections this year using a secure bank drop box to create some continuity for when the new sheriff takes over seven days into a new tax season. Dunn’s staff had the tax bills and collection “down to a science,” he said. “We’re doing this for the first time without the benefit of the last administration,” Fickenscher said.

Seibert said he likes being in the finance manager position, and whether he remains in the job will be the decision of the new sheriff. “I’m hoping they see in me a valuable asset that can help them at least get started,” Seibert said. Seibert said he felt compelled to bring his experience to keep the sheriff’s office running smoothly, and looked at it as a challenge.

treatment center, she stayed clean for few months before relapsing in August 2007. “I used again for about a week, then quit again and have been off heroin for five years,” Bujdoso said. “I just knew I was meant to do better things with my life than kill myself with drugs.”

When Dr. Kalfas first started working with addiction treatment in the mid-1990s, he said he rarely saw patients with heroin addiction. Now treatment centers, including the one in Falmouth where he was medical director for 15 years, are filled with them, Kalfas said. “I’ve watched the heroin in this area really bal-

loon over the years,” Kalfas said. “It’s not just something that affects big cities. It has thoroughly infiltrated small-town America places, including Northern Kentucky.” Kalfas said in his opinion, the heroin epidemic in this area won’t get better

until awareness is spread and the treatment of addicts improves. “Until the stigma surrounding heroin addiction goes away, it’s going to be hard to treat these people,” Kalfas said.

COLD SPRING — Residents of the city will have the opportunity to try one of seven different types of fitness classes for free in Cold Spring Saturday, Sept. 22. The scheduled classes are listed by location. Patriot Park, Ridgepointe Drive in the Glenridge subdivision: » 9 a.m. Fitness boot camp. Bring a mat if possible. » 10:15 a.m. Senior fitness.

New school tops priority list ALEXANDRIA — A new intermediate school for grades 4-5 and a new middle school are the top two priorities in a new facility plan for Campbell County Schools. The Board of Education approved the plan Monday, Sept. 10. But, unless there is an unexpected influx of money to the district or sudden or growth in enrollment, the district will not start a major building project in the next four or five years, said Superintendent Glen Miller. The district doesn’t have the bonding capacity to start another major building project, he said. “So, you’re not going to go out and build a building within the next four or five years,” Miller said. Student enrollment projections for the district show student enrollment remaining steady for the next six years, he said. Creation of a new facility plan is required every four years by the state. The last district facility plan

was created in 2007, and the district received permission to delay the process one year since it was in the middle of starting on the new Area Technology Center, Miller said. The objective of the 2012 plan was to create the largest unmet need possible for when the state sets it’s biennium budget, he said. If the state allocates funds for facilities they may go by the unmet need, Miller said. The unmet needs listed in the 2012 plan total $70 million, he said. The plan is flexible, and the board is not committed to anything in the plan, Miller said. The board approved the 2012 facility plan by a vote of 4-1. Board member Rich Mason voted against the plan, saying he disagreed with the idea of creating an intermediate school without further studies. Adding another transition year was a problem, he said. “You talk to parents, and one of the biggest problems for kids, the most difficult year is that sixth grade because they’re changing from their ele-

mentary school where they may have been six or seven years, and now they’re going to a new school with a bunch of kids they don’t know,” Mason. Mason said he would rather see the district go from a grades 7-9 middle school, which changes the facilities plan and usage dramatically as well. Prior to the vote, board member Kimber Fender asked Miller why Grants Lick Elementary was listed as renovation instead of

new construction. Miller said renovations of Grants Lick Elementary are the best course because of the state’s position on the school. “The state, they will tell you that Grants Lick enrollment numbers could be absorbed into your existing schools as it is, so it would be very difficult for them to say let’s rebuild it,” he said.

County starts traffic diversion program Keeps speeders out of court By Chris Mayhew

tickets out of the courts and divert fees from the state to the county. The new County Attorney Traffic Safety Program started Aug. 1 and is in response to a law passed by the 2012 Kentucky General Assembly as House Bill 480, said Campbell County Attorney Steve Franzen. House Bill 480, signed into law April 11 by Gov. Steve Beshear, amends state law regarding stateoperated traffic schools to allow county attorneys to operate their own traffic safety program, according to the Kentucky Legislature’s website

.gov. “The people we’re targeting is the law-violators; the speeders,” Franzen said. It is an effort to educate people about the dangers of speeding, and it does mirror the state’s traffic safety program, he said. “Quite frankly, it frees up our prosecutors and judges,” Franzen said. Taking traffic citations out of court frees up the docket for cases involving juveniles, theft and other crimes, he said. A protocol has been set up to move specific traffic violations into the diversion program, if the person

is eligible, Franzen said. If a traffic charge is bundled with another charge like possession of marijuana, then the offender is not eligible for the program, he said. Eligible offenses for the diversion program will include failure to use a child restraint device, loud exhaust and speeding, Franzen said. Offenses not eligible include driving under the influence. One area where speeders will not get a break is on the AA Highway, he said. Police and the county attorney’s office have been very aggressive

about speeding on the AA Highway because of the dangerous traffic safety issues along the roadway, Franzen said. “Most people understand when you get on the AA Highway, you darn well better watch your speed,” he said. “I think that’s a good attitude to have.” Franzen’s office is partnering with Advent Financial Systems Diversion Manager and using the company’s Prosecutor Traffic Safety Program. People eligible to enter the diversion program will either take a course online or using a workbook and

then complete a short questionnaire, according to a news release from the county attorney’s office. The county attorney will withdraw a person’s citation upon their completion of the course. Qualifying traffic offenders will avoid court costs, fines and other ramifications including points on their license. People will be able to enter the diversion program once a year for moving violations, and may still be eligible to enter state traffic school for a second offense, Franzen said. “This is especially convenient for out-of-state travelers,” he said. “They can just go online and go through this course, pay their fee, and we get a certificate from the vendor that they’ve completed it.” Of the $150 cost for the program, $75 will go toward running the county attorney’s office for staff and expenses, Franzen said. A $25 fee will be paid to the Circuit Court Clerk’s office, and the remaining $50 goes to the vendor, he said. The program keeps the fees associated with traffic tickets going to fund part of the county attorney’s office in Campbell County for the related work instead of going directly to the state, Franzen said. “I think it’s a good way to fund government,” he said.

We would turn the gas on early in the morning and turn it down to 60 degrees; We would use the EdenPURE® heaters from then on and they provided such warmth and cozy heat. Many of our friends have informed me recently that they are going to purchase these heaters for their homes this winter. Gloria D. Smith, Boydton, VA (Retired Elementary Principal)

EdenPURE ranked #1 ®

Save $229 - biggest savings ever

Richard Karn, North Canton, Ohio

I know why millions of Americans are saving on their heating bills with the EdenPURE ® Portable Infrared Heaters. And now you can save up to $229 on new EdenPURE® models, our biggest savings ever, on heaters I personally rank #1 in North America. I was fortunate enough to attend the grand opening of the new EdenPURE® factory in North Canton, Ohio. The new plant brought hundreds of new jobs back to Ohio and reversed the common practice of sending Midwest manufacturing jobs to China. Now, EdenPURE® continues to ramp up production for the coming Winter with exciting new models and hundreds of new employees as this Made in America success story continues to grow. Labor, American American Quality With over 3 million portable heaters sold EdenPURE ® is the best selling portable infrared heating system in North America. However, like any classic, EdenPURE® has dozens of would-be competitors who create Asian copies at low prices using cheap, foreign labor. Don’t be fooled by these imitations. Look for the EdenPURE ® logo and the Made in North Canton, Ohio stamp. Save like millions of others on your heating bills and say “NO” to cheap foreign imitators. Save up to 49% on 2013 EdenPURE®s Now readers can save up to 49% ($229 the largest savings ever on new EdenPURE ®s). EdenPURE ® is not just the best-selling portable heating system in North America. As an EdenPURE ® owner I rank EdenPURE® #1 for quality, safety and efficiency. And now is the perfect time to save like never before on our expanded 2013 EdenPURE ® line made in our brand new North Canton, Ohio facility. With two models EdenPURE® can meet all of your heating requirements 365 days a year. We receive thousands of letters from satisfied customers who share their heating testimonials many of which you can view at our website This Summer we even followed up with EdenPURE® customers from 5 years ago like Gloria Smith (see her original testimony above) who are still just as enthusiastic and in some instances saved thousands of dollars versus costly propane.

As Al Borland on Home Improvement I was the man with all the answers. However, as Richard Karn I still look for money saving and efficient heating in my home. I have an EdenPURE ® Infrared Portable Heater in my California home and like millions of others found it to be a supersafe, reliable source of portable heat all year long. period of 5 years. And that’s proven with my bank statements because it’s documented. And I feel really great about using the EdenPURE® Heaters.” “Many people have called me from all over the country when they have seen the infomercials on TV. I’ve enjoyed talking to them and I want everybody to save money in these hard economic times. I believe in paying it forward, so when you experience something good, you want to share it.” Stay Comfortable 365 Days a Year “Never be cold again” is the EdenPURE ® promise. EdenPURE ® provides you insurance against the cold all year long. Stay comfortable on those unseasonably chilly evenings no matter the season. I live in California but believe me it gets cold at night. Keep your expensive furnace turned down until it’s absolutely necessary. And if we are fortunate enough to experience a mild winter as many of us did in the Midwest last year, you keep your furnace off all season and save even bigger. New, More Efficient Models The engineers at EdenPURE® listened to their millions of customers and somehow managed to improve the #1 portable heater in North America. Through old fashioned American ingenuity the new EdenPURE® line is more efficient to save you even more money. EdenPURE ® is proud to introduce the 2013 Model 750. The new Model 750 is perfect for larger areas and heats up to 750 square feet. But the best thing about the Model 750 is the price. We

priced the Model 750 at only $50 above the Personal Heater. This means you receive a 33% increase in performance for only $50. That’s American engineering at its best! We all know heating costs are expected to remain at record levels. The cost of heating our homes and apartments will continue to be a significant burden on the family budget. The EdenPURE® can cut your heating bills and pay for itself in a matter of weeks, and then start putting a great deal of extra money in your pocket after that. Super Safe Infrared Heat Now remember, a major cause of residential fires in the United States is carelessness and faulty portable heaters. The choice of fire and safety professional, Captain Mike Hornby, the EdenPURE ® has no exposed heating elements that can cause a fire. And a redundant home protection system that simply shuts the EdenPURE ® down if it senses danger. That’s why grandparents and parents love the EdenPURE®. The outside of the EdenPURE ® only gets warm to the touch so that it will not burn children or pets. And your pet may be just like my dog who has reserved a favorite spot near the EdenPURE®. You see the EdenPURE ® uses infrared heat. And just as pets enjoy basking in a beam of sunlight they try to stay close to “boneEdenPURE ® ’s warming” infrared heat.

SYLVANIA is a registered trademark of OSRAM SYLVANIA Inc. used under license. Richard Karn is a paid spokesperson for EdenPURE®.

We are a nation of inventors from Benjamin Franklin to Thomas Edison. A Missouri horse breeder named John Jones was no exception. Jones lived in a large drafty old farmhouse with his family of five. They stayed warm on cold Missouri nights with an old coal furnace and plenty of blankets. Now Jones was always collecting scrap to use in his latest inventions and somewhere along the line he had picked up a large sheet of cured copper. Jones stored the large copper sheet in his basement near the coal furnace he labored to fill every chilly morning. Jones noticed something peculiar. The coal furnace warmed the copper sheet and as the furnace cooled down the copper sheet stayed warm. In fact, the copper sheet stayed warm for many hours and heated much of the large basement. As Jones continued to develop a portable infrared heater he knew the copper was the secret ingredient that would make his heater different from all the rest. His copper heating chambers combined with the far infrared bulbs provided an efficient wave of “soft” heat over large areas. The breakthrough EdenPURE® infrared heating chamber was born. The Health Secret is in the Copper EdenPURE®’s engineers have taken Jones’ original concept through revolutionary changes. EdenFLOW™ technology uses copper heating chambers to take the energy provided by our special SYLVANIA infrared bulbs and distribute our famous soft heat evenly throughout the room. Now our copper isn’t ordinary. It’s 99.9% pure antimicrobial copper from an over 150 year old American owned company in Penn-

For more than 50 years, the Wickelhaus family and their employees have been providing hair care services to patrons throughout Northern Kentucky. In the mid-1900s, Elmer John Wickelhaus opened several of the first beauty salons in the area, many named after the cities where they were located. In 1962, he opened his Newport location, and changed the company name to reflect his initials, calling it E-Jay’s. “There wasn’t much over here as far as salons

back then,” said Arlene “Ardie” Koehler Birkenhauer, who started at the Newport location in 1962. “We started with two rooms and just kept adding on.” In 1986, when Elmer passed away, his second wife Gayla Wickelhaus, daughter Lisa Wickelhaus Richie and son Greg Wickelhaus took over the business. A few years ago when Gayla retired and Lisa moved away, Greg, who went to beauty school right after graduating from high school, took over with his wife, Suzanne Wickelhaus. “It’s really all I know, and I guess I’m pretty good at it,” Greg said. But, the E-Jay’s family doesn’t consist of just Wickelhaus relatives, Suzanne said. The employees at all three locations, many who have been with the company for decades, make up the real E-Jay family.

Fluency Fridays promote reading By Amanda Joering

BELLEVUE — Students at Grandview Elementary School have a new opportunity to improve their reading skills this school year. Since coming back from summer break, the school has been holding Fluency Friday events every week. Family Resource Center Director Rob Sanders said through the program, every student now spends 10 minutes every Friday morning celebrating Fluency Friday by reading a book or being read to, depending on their grade level. The program, which the school’s new principal Jamie Baker has used at other schools, is meant to encourage reading and the development of reading skills. “Basically this is a schoolwide initiative to put a focus on reading,” Baker said. “While all learning is important, I

Superintendent Wayne Starnes reads to students at Grandview Elementary School as part of the school's Fluency Friday program. PROVIDED

think reading is the foundation for all other learning.” Sanders said younger students are read to by teachers, district administrators and community members.

Older students get to choose their own book to read during the 10 minutes. “We want students to choose their own books so they see reading as an enjoyable activ-

ity instead of something that they have to do,” Sanders said. Having special guest readers come in and read to the younger students helps them get excited about reading and see that others value reading enough to come in and read to them, Sanders said. Baker said Fluency Fridays are just one of the many ways the school tries to promote reading. “We want to give our students as many different opportunities to improve their reading skills as we can,” Baker said. “Here at Grandview we want to show our students that we feel reading is extremely important and that we are committed to helping our students become better readers.” Sanders said the school is still looking for more community members to volunteer as a guest reader and come in to read to the younger students. Anyone interested in volunteering can call the school at 261-4355 for more information.

The Northern Kentucky University Music Preparatory Department has been nationally chosen as the newest National String Project Consortium site and has been awarded a four-year grant to provide area students in grades three through 12 affordable, highquality string-music instruction and Northern undergraduates hands-on teaching experience. Grant funding will begin with $10,000 during the first year and reduce each year as the program becomes self-sustaining. The string project model originates with a twice-perweek beginner’s class during the first year. Students receive heterogeneous, large-class instruction from a master teacher, which is observed by undergraduate string project teaching assistants who then each teach a smaller class later in the week. As the string project grows, additional elements are added such as homogeneous classes, private lessons and string orchestras. The Northern String Project will begin its first year with three offerings: Level 1 Beginning Strings for new string players grades three through five, Level 2 Advanced Strings for students with at least one year playing experience in grades four through six and Level 1 Adult Beginning Strings for student ages 18 and up. In addition to the Northern String Project programs, Northern Music Prep is home to the Northern Youth Symphony Orchestra, which is a full ensemble for brass, woodwinds, percussion and strings for students grades seven through 12, as well as the Northern Soloist Players, an elite mixed chamber ensemble for high school students. The consortium is one of the most coveted and prestigious awards in all of string-music education. Currently, 24 universities and colleges nationwide offer the American String Teachers Association National String Project to grade-schoolers in their communities. The program is designed to eliminate the long-term shortage of string music teachers in the United States while expanding the availability and accessibility of music education to young children. Utilizing college students in supervised teaching roles allows Northern to offer music lessons at substantially reduced fees, making the program accessible to all families in the community who wish to participate. Through hands-on teaching experiences with children in the program, undergraduate student teachers become better skilled in managing a classroom and teaching small children. Applications for student enrollment are available at http:// or by calling Northern Music Prep at 859572-7737. Applications will be accepted through Saturday, Sept. 1 for guaranteed enrollment.

Brossart makes strong pitch

By Adam Turer

It does not get much better than this. Bishop Brossart’s boys soccer team has started the season 11-1, with the sole loss coming in the All “A” Classic. Last season, the Mustangs dealt with injuries to four different starters. This year, the team has played at full strength. When this team is healthy, it is a force to be reckoned with. “We have a number of people playing well and we’ve been able to stay healthy,” said head coach Brian Goller. The team’s only loss came to St. Henry in the All “A” Classic Ninth Region championship game. The Mustangs avenged that loss with a 1-0 home victory

over St. Henry on Sept. 11. Brossart was ranked No.15 in the state in the latest Kentucky High School Soccer Coaches Association Top 25 poll. As the wins continue, the players’ confidence grows. “When you’re having a season like this, the kids expect to win every time out there,” said Goller. The Mustangs have sought out top competition all over the state, playing the Thoroughbred Classic, Cardinal Cup, and Panther Classic, in addition to the All “A” Classic. With that tournament experience, the Mustangs now focus on their final seven matches of the regular season, beginning on Sept. 18 at Highlands. Playing so many tournaments outside of Northern Kentucky has the Mustangs ready for local action .

“It really prepares you,” said Goller of the tournament experience. “You play under different conditions. It also helped us jell as a team.” Forward Jordan Frommeyer is having a senior season to remember. The team’s top scorer missed most of his junior season with a broken wrist. He has been playing at a high level all season, most recently scoring the goahead goal in Brossart’s Sept. 13 win over Scott. Senior Ben Uebel leads the team in assists and controls the tempo of the match from his midfield position. The Mustangs are far from the biggest team in the region, but they may be one of the quickest. “We’re pretty fast and have good ball skills,” said Goller. “We’re able to make up for our lack of size with our speed.”

With the two seniors leading the offensive attack, the defense has been the real revelation for Brossart this year. Senior goalkeeper David Paulin has posted eight shutouts. “Our defense has done a stellar job,” said Goller. The defense, and the entire team, has been motivated by senior defender Sam Wilson. Sam’s father, Mark, is battling cancer and recently had a leg amputated. His courage has inspired the Mustangs, who dedicated their season to Mark and the Wilson family. “The team has bonded in support of Sam and his family,” said Goller. “It’s been a good testament to the type of community we have.” Brossart’s inspired season continues Sept. 22 at Holy Cross.

Kelsey Zwergel served the ball to Laumann, and she was able to put ball in the top corner of the net. The game was tied until 72:25 when Smith took a pass from Maria Staab and was able to beat the goalie. Smith found the back of the net to put the Norse ahead and sealed the 2-1 victory. “I thought we really competed and battled. We were pleased with the team’s efforts, and we were obviously very pleased with the outcome,” head coach Bob Sheehan said. “It was a complete team effort today. Some of the players who didn’t get the start gave a great effort off the bench, and they were key for us. They came in and brought a lot of energy and were essential to our success.” NKU improved to 3-5 on the season with the win, while Youngstown State dropped to 4-3. The Norse return home to open Atlantic Sun Conference play on Friday with a match against Jacksonville at 7 p.m. NKU will then host North Florida at noon Sunday.

NewCath golf hopes to peak in regional tourney By Adam Turer David Harris hit a home run in game two of the championship series against the Southern Illinois Miners. THANKS TO THE FLORENCE FREEDOM

Freedom finishes best run to date Manager: Season ‘most rewarding’

By Adam Turer

FLORENCE — The most dramatic season in team history ended in quite possibly the least dramatic way. The Florence Freedom lost the Frontier League Championship Series to the Southern Illinois Miners on a walk-off walk in the bottom of the 12th inning on Sunday, Sept. 16. The loss did not overshadow the most successful, exciting season in Florence Freedom history. The Freedom dominated the final month of the regular season to clinch the first postseason berth in team history. Then, Florence won its first playoff series in dramatic fashion, behind Drew Rundle’s walk-off home run in an elimination game and Peter Fatse’s monster game in the series clincher. Florence finished with a franchise-record 57 wins. “As a manager, it was probably my most rewarding season,” said Freedom manager Fran Riordan. “This was a special group that came together as a team and was able to do some real special things.” A different player seemed to step up each night to lead the Freedom. In the final game of the year, Brandon Mathes pitched six innings of scoreless relief and struck out eight. He relieved starter Andy Clark, one part of the starting rotation that

propelled the Freedom to the brink of a championship. So many different players contributed to the Freedom’s improbable run towards the postseason. “It seemed as if our backs weren’t against the wall, something wasn’t right,” said Riordan. “Until the very end, these guys fought for and earned everything they got.” From early August through the season’s final night on Sept. 16, the Freedom played with a sense of urgency. “We feel like we played the last month like we had to win,” said shortstop and Frontier League All-Star Junior Arrojo. “There was no pressure on us. We played with our backs against the wall all year.” Doubt was not in the players’ vocabulary. Once Riordan and his staff opted to switch to a four-man starting rotation in early August, the Freedom started clicking and never looked back. “It was a great feeling,” said Arrojo. “The group of guys and the run we had was the best feeling in baseball.” As the Freedom started winning, the Florence community took notice. The more important the games became, the louder the crowd at Florence Freedom Field became. The coaches and players heard the difference in the stadium’s volume. “Our fans are great. They saw how we were

winning games and they helped us win some games,” said Arrojo. “I wish we could have come back for Game Five and won a championship for them.” The team showed its resolve until the last run of the season crossed the plate. The Freedom dropped the first two games of the championship series before winning Game Three on the road. In Game Four, the Freedom trailed 3-0 before tying the game in the top of the eighth inning. “When we were down 2-0 in the series, everybody on our team thought we would come back and win,” said Arrojo. Now, the independent league players will decide what to do next with their careers. Some players will retire from baseball; others will take advantage of other career opportunities within the game. The players and coaches hope they can bring the team back together for one more run, capped off by a league title. “I hope we can keep the roster turnover to a minimum,” said Riordan. “We don’t want to mess too much with the feeling we had at the end of the year.” For the players, the bond was even tighter. “This is such a special group of guys,” said Arrojo. “I’m really going to miss them this offseason. We all want to come back and play together again.”

NEWPORT — This is the time of year when high school golfers narrow their focus. All the match play and invitational tournaments of the regular season will culminate in the regional tournament on Sept. 24. “We hope to peak next week in the regional tournament,” said Newport Central Catholic head golf coach Jeff Schulkens. “It comes down to one day and whoever can play the best on that day next week.” The Thoroughbreds should not wilt under pressure. Five of the top six players from last year’s squad make up the top five on this year’s team. The 2011 team became the first in school history to qualify for the state tournament. A return trip to state is the goal this season.

“Our guys have plenty of experience playing in big tournaments,” said Schulkens. NewCath placed third out of 16 teams in the All “A” Classic state tournament in Somerset on Sept. 8. The ‘Breds placed 11th at the Battle of the Bluegrass tournament in Simpsonville on Sept.15, in a tournament that featured the top teams from the state. “Playing a difficult course and against some of the best teams in the state helps your confidence,” said Schulkens. “That’s why you like to play on a long course and in pressure situations like that.” Senior Colin DuPont and sophomore Drew McDonald have been the team’s leaders this year. DuPont shot a 75 in the All “A” state tournament, good for a fourth-place finish. Sophomore Matt

Striegel, senior Nick Seibert, and junior Luke Holtz round out the top five for NewCath. This same group set the bar high for the program last season. They are focused on improving on their regional and state performances from a year ago. Thanks to all of their experience in high-pressure situations, the Thoroughbreds should be prepared to shoot their lowest scores of the season on Sept. 24. “You concentrate a little more in tournaments,” Schulkens said. “You know each shot means a little more.” The Thoroughbreds have three tuneups before the regional tournament at A.J. Jolly Golf Course, including the conference tournament on Sept. 17 (after deadline) and a match against Bourbon County at A.J. Jolly on Sept. 21.

Join the fight against cyberbullying Online threats and harassment made 17-year-old Rachel Neblett’s life unbearable. On Oct. 9, 2006, the Mount Washington, Ky., cheerleader took her own life. It was only after Rachel’s suicide that her father, Mark Neblett, learned the extent of the cyberbullying. Rachel is one of approximately two dozen teens each year in this country who turn to suicide after being bullied at school or online. Each day, 160,000 students will miss school for fear of being bullied or harassed. The anonymity and immediacy of computers and mobile devices have made cyberbullying the most prevalent type of bullying between teens. The National Crime Prevention Association says more than 50 percent of all American teens have been a victim of cyberbullying. Most instances of bullying go unreported. With school back in session, I’ve joined with the Kentucky Center for School Safety and the Kentucky Suicide Prevention Group to urge students, parents and educators to help us fight cyberbullying and cyberharassment. According to the Kentucky Department of Education, there were more than 6,000 incidents of bullying, felony stalking, harassment or verbal

abuse during the 2011-12 school year that resulted in an expulsion, out-ofschool suspension or corpoJack ral punishConway ment. ReCOMMUNITY PRESS search has GUEST COLUMNIST shown that both victims and perpetrators of bullying, including physical violence, injury and cyberbullying, are at a higher risk for depression and suicide than their peers. The long term effects of bullying of any kind can last well into adulthood. Online bullying and harassment is an issue my office takes very seriously. After hearing from concerned parents, like Mark Neblett, school officials and community leaders across Kentucky, I crafted cybercrimes legislation to bring our laws up to date with changes in technology. It also created the crime of cyberstalking. In 2010, I led a nationwide effort to address abusive, harassing and inappropriate comments on the Internet message board website Today, all reports of abuse on Topix are reviewed and removed free of charge

ABOUT LETTERS AND COLUMNS We welcome your comments on editorials, columns, stories or other topics important to you in the Recorder. Include your name, address and phone number(s) so we may verify your letter. Letters of 200 or fewer words and columns of 500 or fewer words have the best chance of being published. All submissions may be edited for length, accuracy and clarity.

and priority is given to abusive comments that involve children. We continue to work with Topix to ensure that Kentuckians, particularly our kids, are not harmed by harassing and abusive posts. Inappropriate posts that aren’t removed from Topix in a timely manner can be reported to . To help us fight cyberbullying, please follow these tips.

For students

Tell a trusted adult if you have been bullied, cyberbullied or harassed. Don’t open messages from people you don’t know. Don’t react to the bully or respond to harassing e-mails or posts.

Block the bully from sending you e-mail or posting to your social networking account. If you are threatened, inform the police. Don’t email when you are angry and never post “questionable” pictures of others.

For parents

Strongly encourage your child not to respond to cyberbullying. Try to identify the individual doing the cyberbullying and do not erase messages and pictures. Contact your child’s school if the cyberbullying is occurring through school. Contact police if cyberbullying involves threats of violence, extortion, obscene or

harassing phone calls, harassment, stalking or hate crimes. Monitor your child’s online activities and discuss what is appropriate to post online. Seek help if your child’s grades decline, they lose interest in socializing or show aggression or violence toward others.

For educators

Educate your students, teachers and staff about cyberbullying and its dangers. Make sure your school’s anti-bullying rules and policies address cyberbullying. Investigate reports of cyberbullying immediately. Monitor students’ use of computers at school. Notify the police if the known or suspected cyberbullying involves a threat. Although there are often no visible signs of abuse, the wounds associated with cyberbullying and harassment run deep. It has become a life or death issue. But there is a cure. By recognizing the signs of bullying of any type and taking action, we can stop this insidious problem. Working together, we can ensure a brighter future for all Kentucky kids.

Heroin epidemic – Hiding in plain sight The tragic consequences of addiction made the news earlier this month when three young men broke into a Northern Kentucky home, the breakin resulting in the death of one and the arrests of the other two. Lives were irrevocably changed forever, the one who took the life, the one who lost his life, the two who lost their freedom and everyone who loved and cared about each of these individuals. All of these lives became the casualties of heroin, a drug that takes until there is no more to take. For those of us who have lived and/or worked with those who suffer from the disease of addiction, the revelation that heroin was involved came as

no surprise. We knew before we knew. As many times as we have heard or read about violence being inflicted on Charlotte individuals, it Wethington COMMUNITY PRESS should come as no shock to GUEST COLUMNIST anyone that drugs have become increasingly responsible for the heartbreak of families, communities and the nation. Unless a person has been living on another planet, they know about the devastating effects that drugs and addiction are having on our lives, all of our lives without exception re-

gardless of whether you have a loved one with this disease or not. Amazingly, of all the topics discussed during the national Democratic and Republican conventions, not one comment was made concerning the epidemic that is plaguing our nation and destroying lives at an alarming rate. Overdoses at the rate of one every 14 minutes that have now exceeded the number of auto fatalities are one part of the heartwrenching havoc that is being wreaked on our families. If this were any other threat to the public’s safety and well-being, there would be no end to the precautionary measures that would be taken as well as the immediate atten-

tion devoted to education, awareness and treatment for those already affected. Why then is it only when a tragedy strikes that we hear about it and then only in passing, as if this is the one and only time that it will ever happen? It’s not. The calls everyday from family members crying for help, the waiting lists for detox and treatment, the number of criminal offenses resulting from the use and/or sale of drugs, and the overdose deaths are some of the overwhelming testaments to the problem and the need for more education/prevention, treatment and recovery resources. It is as true with addiction as with any other chronic, progressive potentially fatal

MELBOURNE — Dogs with wagging tails and frolicking cats and kittens can always be found at the Campbell County Animal Shelter waiting for someone to take them home. “We’re always needing people to adopt these animals into good caring homes,” said shelter director Lisa Bowman. Most people find out about animals the shelter has available for adoption through pet adoption websites like or and come in ready to look at a dog or cat they’ve seen online, Bowman said. The shelter is always ready to adopt an animal out, but people need to remember the commitment of caring for a pet, she said. Bowman said she’s heartbroken when someone comes in excited to adopt a pet and then brings a dog or cat back several weeks later because they realized they couldn’t care for the animal. People have to realize a dog needs to be let out three or four time in a day, and the expense of food, she said. “I just want people to realize it is a life commitment,” Bowman said. The shelter always has plenty of dogs, but cats are overloading the facility more than dogs because they breed more, she said. “The animal shelter is serving as a safe haven here in Campbell County for homeless animals,” Bowman said. Private donations to help operate the facility and volunteers are always needed, she said. Susan Daniel of Florence, a retired teacher, has been volunteering at the shelter for almost 20 years. Daniel said she loves animals, and what people often don’t realize is the quality of animals they can find at the shelter. “People think we don’t get purebred dogs,” she said. They do, Daniel said. The shelter currently has a 3-year-old German Shepherd among its purebred dogs, she said. A majority of the dogs the shelter receives are friendly, Daniel said. “We get some of the best disposition dogs,” she said. Daniel said she especially hard to see animals at the shelter because their owner has died.

Those animals have only known love, and there are often not enough people looking to adopt, she said. “People think they are throw away animals who are not worthy to adopt,” Daniel said. That’s not true, and there are

Select pears with unblemished skin It is the time of year when pears are in season and available at some roadside stands and farm markets. They are also readily available at most grocery stores. Pears come in many varieties and colors. When selecting pears choose those with unblemished skin. Avoid pears with bruises or cuts and dark brown spots. When ripe, most pears should yield to gentle pressure at the stem end. Hard pears can be fully ripened and softened at home by placing them in a brown paper bag for a few days. Once pears are ripe they should be stored in the refrigerator. Pears will usually last about five days in the refrigerator.

Pears are a good source of soluble fiber – the kind that helps reduce the cholesterol Diane in our bodMason ies. A mediEXTENSION um pear NOTES with skin has about 5 grams of dietary fiber. Pears also contain potassium and vitamin C. Pears are great when eaten out of hand. It is hard to beat the taste of a fresh, juicy pear. They can be used in many recipes. Consider dressing up a salad with thinly sliced pears, some chopped walnuts, and a thin shaving of

Parmesan cheese. Or toss pears with salad greens and balsamic vinaigrette. Add a few pear slices to your turkey sandwich made with whole wheat bread. Pears may also be baked for an elegant dessert. Spices such as cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg and allspice enhance the flavor of cooked pears.

Make cream puffs to celebrate Oktoberfest

Cream puffs

This is the same dough you use for eclairs and also cream puff rings. The dough is called pate a choux. Unfilled cream puffs freeze well after baking. 1 cup water ½ cup butter 1 cup all-purpose flour 4 large eggs

CRAFT SHOWS OCTOBER Harvest Fest, Oct. 20 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, Monmouth Street between Fourth and 11th streets, Newport. Dining, entertainment and shopping venues and specials, along with local artists and musicians.

DECEMBER Christmas and Fine Arts Bazaar, Dec. 1 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec.. 1, Christ Methodist Church,1440 Boone Aire Road, Florence. Craft and fine arts displays, silent auction of beautifully filled baskets, bake sale and concession stand.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a saucepan, bring water and butter to a boil. Stir in flour, reduce heat to low. Stir vigorously over low heat, about 1 minute or until mixture forms a ball and you see a film on the bottom. Remove from heat and beat in eggs, one at a time. By the time all eggs have been added, you’ll have a thick, smooth paste. On ungreased or parchment-lined cookie sheet, drop dough by slightly less than ¼ cupfuls three inches apart. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until puffed and golden. Poke a tiny hole or slit in side of each to let steam escape. Cool away from draft, about 30 minutes. Makes about 10 puffs.

A rash of concern over poison ivy

Question: Is it true that if poison ivy is burned, the smoke can cause a rash similar to that you might get if you touch the leaves of the plant? Answer: Yes, it is true that all parts of the plant are dangerous, including the smoke. When burned, the oils in the poison ivy stems and leaves are released in the smoke and can produce a severe allergic reaction in the eyes, throat, lungs and skin. In the fall, poison ivy smoke

Poison ivy uses rootlike-holdfasts which attach to a tree for climbing upwards, so if any such vines with hairy roots are found attached to your firewood, wear gloves to remove and dispose of the vines before burning your firewood. Poison ivy has oil in it that causes humans to have an allergic reaction. This oil is on the leaves, stems, vines, berries and roots. If exposed to any part of the plant, symp-

toms may include a red, very itchy rash that usually appears four to 48 hours after contact with the plant or the smoke, bumps or blisters on the skin, and swelling in the red area. The rash could last up to three weeks, depending on the amount of plant oil that got onto the skin, as well as the person’s level of resistance. If you have been in contact with any part of poison ivy or its smoke, remove any clothing that may have been exposed to the oils and wash them separately in the washing machine, using hot water. Gently wash exposed skin and under the fingernails. If you feel itchy, place a cool, damp washcloth on the exposed area, and then apply some calamine lotion. If you develop large itchy areas or a rash on your face, or if poison ivy smoke has been inhaled, you should contact your

doctor. If you or a child has a severe allergic reaction and develops symptoms such as swelling of the tongue or throat, a tight chest feeling, or difficulty breathing, you should seek emergency treatment immediately. The best way to prevent an allergic reaction is to avoid the plant and the smoke from burning poison ivy. Know how to identify poison ivy and teach your children how to avoid it. My mother always said, “Leaves of three, let it be!” The best way to identify poison ivy is by its characteristic compound leaf consisting of three leaflets. The leaflets are 2-4 inches long, dull or glossy green with pointed tips. The margins of the leaflets are variable, appearing irregularly toothed, lobed, or smooth. The leaves are positioned alternately on the main stems. In contrast, seed-
