Wine festival harvests more pours

By Chris Mayhew

COVINGTON - Rain or shine, organizers of the sixth annual Northern Kentucky Wine Festival plan on having more wineries pouring than they ever had before in Covington’s MainStrasse Village Saturday, Oct. 15. Tastes, glasses and bottles will be available from 15 different wineries at the festival including Campbell County’s Seven Wells Winery in Alexandria, Generation Hill of Alexandria and StoneBrook Winery of Camp Springs. Other local wineries at this year’s festival include Kenton County’s Atwood Hill Winery of Morningview and Baker Bird Winery of Augusta. StoneBrook owners Dennis and Bonnie Walter, one of the founders of the wine festival, were busy harvesting and crushing their crop of vidal blanc grapes Saturday, Oct. 1 – the namesake for one of their signature wines. Walter said he is excited about this year’s festival because it’s looking like it will be the largest collection of Kentucky wineries pouring in one place with labels from across the state represented. It used to be the festival only attracted local wineries, but this year they’re coming from as far

If you go

The sixth annual Northern Kentucky Wine Festival presented by Party Town will be located in tents along the Sixth Street Promenade in Covington's MainStrasse Village at the Goose Girl fountain from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15. In addition to wine, local restaurants will offer samples of foods to complement the wines. Local artists will showcase their work, and there will be live music. The festival will go on rain or shine, and attendees must be at least 21 years old. The cost of admission is $10. Additional sample tickets are $1 each or six tickets for $5. Tickets for a full glass of wine will be $5 each. Wines will also be sold by the bottle or case. For parking and other information about the wine festival visit away as Paducah, he said. Walter said this year he will introduce a new port-style blackberry wine at the festival that’s just been released two weeks ago, and a new version of their peach wine that’s been “perfected.” The festival often attracts both regular customers and the curious, he said. “A lot of times yeah, we get people who want to know you’re at and come out and visit for the full experience,” Walter said.

Walter’s family farm offers tastings and by appointment Saturday evening dinners at the winery on the historic family farm where hillsides full of grape vines have replaced former crops including tobacco. Grape growing and wine making has provided people with a way to keep the family farm a viable entity, said Dan Bryan, of Grant’s Lick, chairman of the wine festival. Kentucky has risen in recent years to be among the top 10 wine producing states in the country with more than 60 active wine-makers, Bryan said. “And the quality is there,” he said. “Of course you can’t surpass California with the Chardonnays, but there are several varieties of grapes that prosper here in Kentucky.” The $10 per person cost gets a person in the door, four tastes, and a souvenir wine glass to take home, he said. People will also be able to buy tickets for a glass of wine, or buy a bottle, Bryan said. It’s a chance for each winery to introduce their products to a new set of customers, he said. “And there aren’t too many festivals where you can go and talk to the owners and wine makers,” Bryan said.

Health continues to be weighty issue By Chris Mayhew

COLD SPRING - The scales tipped against Mayor Mark Stoeber’s battle to lose weight in September as he reviewed his efforts as part of the city-promoted health and fitness initiative. Stoeber said at the end of August he weighed 210-pounds, the weight he was at when he was age 23. Stoeber said he now weighs-in at 214 pounds. Losing the weight seems to be easier than keeping it off and maintaining, he said.

Stoeber said he still has November until he needs to meet his goal of being at 210-pounds or below, so there is still time. Stoeber said he is also challenging people in the city to try and take salt out of their diet. “It’s almost nearly impossible,” he said. The Food and Drug Administration recommends an average daily intake of about 2,000 milligrams of salt per day, but some doctors say a person’s daily intake should be closer to about 1,400 milligrams, Stoeber said. One of the most important things to being healthy and losing

weight starts with what the city’s October program is and that’s eating healthy, he said. The city’s “Get Lean Cold Spring” healthy cooking class will be in the community room of the city building from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22. Chefs will cook foods and bring them and then show people how to cook the dishes themselves, Stoeber said. There are only 45 spots in the class, so anyone interested in attending should call the city clerk, Rita Seger, at the city building at 859-441-9604.

COLD SPRING - Accidents along Pooles Creek Road, a windy and narrow two-lane, state-maintained road, has city leaders concerned about safety. Many drivers use the road as a shortcut from the AA Highway in Wilder to U.S. 27 in Cold Spring and Ky. 8 in Silver Grove. So far this year, there have been 30 accidents on a two-mile section of Pooles Creek Road, and it’s not even winter yet, said council member Dave Guidugli at the Sept. 26 meeting. In 2010, there were 52 accidents, Guidugli said. “So, that pretty much tells you how dangerous it is,” he said. Some of the accidents aren’t serious with cars going off the roadway at different spots into people’s yards, but on another part of the road there is a dropoff into the creek bed, and there are no guard rails and steep drop-offs, Guidugli said. The state doesn’t want to install guard rails because it would make it almost like a “pinball” chute, he said. The slippage of the roadway in certain sections has made driving on the surface worse and needs to be fixed, Guidugli said. “They need to do it right or there’s going to be a whole lot more accidents,” he said. Stoeber said the city’s police chief recently responded to a car on its top that went off the road a couple of weeks ago. Several people living along Pooles Creek deal with cars leaving the road with some frequency, Stoeber said. “They just have cars litter their yards all the time,” he said. The city keeps approaching the state to reconstruct Pooles Creek, and it’s been included in the nonactive, six-year road plan for about the last 25 years without any funding, Stoeber said. The estimated cost for the two-mile section is about $5 million, and the state sees ways to spread that amount of money over several other projects, he said. City Attorney Brandon Voelker said the city can ask the state not to allow trucks on the road by passing a non-binding resolution. The state wouldn’t have to do anything, but the city’s position will be noted, Voelker said.

Museum exhibit organizers looking for textiles By Amanda Joering Alley

The Fort Thomas Military and Community Museum will soon be hosting the Smithsonian’s traveling exhibit, Journey Stories, and organizers are asking local residents to help add a unique touch to the exhibit. Journey Stories, a traveling exhibit sponsored by the Kentucky Humanities council, features stories about how Americans’ ancestors came to this country. For the Fort Thomas stop, museum volunteer Deanna Beineke, who is helping organize the event, said they are looking for help from Greater Cincinnati residents to make the exhibit special. Each stop on the tour is doing something different to localize the stories, and in Fort Thomas’s case, they plan to display textiles like quilts and clothing items, Beineke said. “Textiles tell stories about families throughout the years, and we want to display these items and sto-

ries as our signature for this stop of the exhibit,” Beineke said. The plan is to line the walls of the community center with more than 100 items borrowed from local residents. These items can range in size, age and stories and can include items similar to ones Beineke owns, like a quilt she made out of dozens of her father’s old ties, or a woven blanket that has been passed down through her husband’s family since 1839. “History has always been special to me, and I’m just fascinated with the stories these textile tell,” Beineke said. Though the exhibit will be in Fort Thomas, Beineke said they are working to spread to word and collect items from residents throughout the area since the Fort Thomas stop is the only one being held locally. The exhibit will run from Dec. 10 through Jan. 21, so organizers are asking that those interested in submitting items for consideration

Northern Kentucky Water District has agreed to redo street patches made along East Alexandria Pike this summer. The water district has agreed to replace six of the eight patches on East Alexandria Pike, said Cold Spring City Administrator Stephen Taylor at the Monday, Sept. 26, council meeting. The area of the patches starts in front of Cline Elementary School and continues until the turn-off for the city building. The water district agreed the patches were too rough and left a bumpy roadway, Taylor said. “That’s excellent,” said Mayor Mark Stoeber. “I appreciate the water district realizing it and taking care of it.”

Cold Spring aims to keep same property tax rate

Council is considering a proposed property tax rate for 2011 that is the same rate used for the previous year. There were no attendees at a Monday, Sept. 19, public hearing immediately preceding council’s first reading of the proposed property tax rate of $1.64 per $1,000 of assessed value. The city estimates it will receive about $5,000 in additional revenue in 2011, said Mayor Mark Stoeber. The city receives about $900,000 in property tax revenue, and the additional $5,000 will amount to an increase of 0.5 percent more revenue than the previous year, Stoeber said A scheduled vote on the property tax rate by council is anticipated for the next meet-

ing at the city building, 5694 East Alexandria Pike, at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 26, he said.

Bellevue schools move forward with energy management program

By Amanda Joering Alley

Administrators, staff and students at Bellevue Independent Schools are working together to continue on the district’scurrent path of energy efficiency and conservation. The district has recently been participating in the Kentucky Energy Efficiency Program for Schools (KEEPS), which has led them to look at ways they can be more energy efficient. “We have been working very hard on saving energy in this district,” said Superintendent Wayne Starnes. “We have already saved about $30,000 and will continue increasing those savings in the future.” So far, the district has made several changes to conserve energy, said Dave Feldmann, the district’s director of maintenance, including replacing some of the lights at Bellevue High School, Grandview Elementary School, and the football stadium with more energy efficient lights. Other changes have included modifying and configuring thermostats to control air conditioning more efficiently. “So far we’ve mainly made electrical changes and a lot of common sense improvements,” Feldmann said. At a school board meeting Wednesday, Sept. 28, the district

received a Stewardship Award, given to schools that complete the first step of KEEPS, making a commitment to reduce energy costs. Cindy Wahl, regional manger of KEEPS, said the district has already done a good job of moving towards energy efficiency. “This award is truly a reflection of this district’s dedication to being energy efficient,” Wahl said. The district has developed a committee called E2. that meets monthly to work on energy efficiency with the help of Energy Manager Becki Lanter, provided by the Kentucky School Boards Association and KEEPS through the School Energy Managers Project. Lanter helped the committee develop a Energy Management Plan, which the school board approved at its meeting Wednesday. “This plan is designed as a road map,” Lanter said. “It includes things we plan to look at and see how we can make improvements.” Starnes said while participation in the program conserves energy and reduces costs in the district, another benefit is the educational experience it is giving students. “Through participation in KEEPS, students are learning the importance of saving and conserving energy,” Starnes said.

Campbell County High School drama club starts new season By Chris Mayhew

ALEXANDRIA - With a theater season that includes two musicals and Shakespeare, the students in Campbell County High School Drama are preparing to hit some high notes. This year’s lineup includes a Stephen Sondheim classic, the songs of Elvis and the works of William Shakespeare. Typically, the drama students produce two plays and one musical, but this year the mix has been reversed, said Joseph Bertucci, director and drama teacher. The schedule begins with the musical “Into the Woods” Nov. 11-13 featuring music by Stephen Sondheim. The musical was inspired by the Grimm Brothers’ fairy tales, Bertucci said. “We have never produced a musical by Sondheim, who is known for his clever, and difficult, music,” Bertucci said. “It is one of my personal favorite shows, and is very challenging musically.”

Typically, the drama students produce two plays and one musical, but this year the mix has been reversed, said Joseph Bertucci, director and drama teacher. The students and even alumni of the club are excited about a performance of “Into the Woods,” he said. Student actors will be challenged to bring to life characters people already know in new ways, Bertucci said. The performers will have to develop more complex themes in Act Two when the fairy tale characters discover what happens after “Happily Ever After,” he said. “It is a beautiful and entertaining show that combines a witty sense of humor with lessons about growing up, community responsibility and the stories we tell our children,” Bertucci said. The season continues with per-

formances March 23-25 of “All Shook Up,” a new “jukebox musical” featuring the songs of Elvis Presley, he said. A “jukebox musical” features songs from popular culture instead of ones written specifically for the show and, like Stephen Sondheim, is another first for the drama club, Bertucci said. The performance will also feature a large chorus, he said. “It will be fun for our students to create the 1950s setting and styles, and re-imagine these classic rock-n-roll songs in the context of this new story,” Bertucci said. The final performance, “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)” May 4-6 will be set to a whirlwind pace on stage. “This unique show features a small group of actors who attempt to perform snippets of all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays in 97 minutes, with hilarious results,” he said. Incorporating physical comedy

and improvisation, the show will challenge the students to play multiple roles, think fast and interact with the audience, Bertucci said. Plus, they have to learn about all of Shakespeare’s plays, he said. Last year, the cast of “The Diviners” won best play in the The Cappies of Greater Cincinnati awards, Bertucci said. Of the 11 student cast members in “The Diviners,” five are returning and the other six graduated, he said. The audiences will also want to note that evening performances will start 30 minutes earlier than they have traditionally, Bertucci said. Start times for Friday and Saturday evening shows will be now be at 7:30 p.m., and the Sunday matinee shows will keep their 2 p.m. start time, he said. Maria Bessler, a senior, of Alexandria, has been a part of every play and performance with the drama club since her freshman year. Bessler said she will be stage

manager this year after spending a year as assistant stage manager. “I’m really excited about this year because it has two musicals, and usually the season has just one,” she said. The first musical, “Into the Woods” will require more “blocking” where an actor has to be in a certain place on stage while singing in choreographed moves – but the performers aren’t dancing , Bessler said. For a stage manager musicals, especially ones with “blocking” and not dancing, are more challenging, she said. Bessler said she plans to become a doctor and learning the skills of responsibility in theater are going to really help her in college. “I run all the rehearsals, and it’s something that I like doing because I like being a leader,” she said.

Orgnized entirely by the fifth-grade students, the ceremony was attended by parents, local police and fire personnel as well as local veterans. "This gives us hope for the next generation," said one veteran as he watched students pay tribute to the country for which he once fought. Local veterans broke ground for the tree which will be planted in front of the school. The tree was donated by Smith and Jolly Landscaping in Alexandria.

Frommeyer brothers add spice to city rivalry By James Weber

ALEXANDRIA - The Frommeyers were going to have a lot to talk about Sept. 27, no matter what. The family conversation was even more interesting after the boys soccer teams at Campbell County and Bishop Brossart high schools met in their annual rivalry showdown. The teams ended that night with one of the most dramatic meetings in their history. The Camels scored twice in the final two minutes of regulation to send the game to overtime, then eventually won on penalty kicks for a 3-2 decision. Twin brothers Jordan and Josh Frommeyer were on opposite benches that night. Jordan is a midfielder for Brossart. Josh is a midfielder for Campbell County. Both are juniors, non-identical twins who turned 17 two


Twin brothers Josh, left, and Jordan Frommeyer celebrate their 17th birthday. Josh plays soccer for Campbell County High School and Jordan for Bishop Brossart High School. days later. “It was awesome,” Josh said. “When we won, we had a dogpile.” Josh has scored two goals for the Camels, his first two varsity scores. Jordan hasn’t played as much this year because of injury.

A third brother, Jacob, is a freshman JV player for Brossart. Brossart won the JV game that night, with all three brothers participating. Josh said because of the split results, he and Jordan didn’t talk a lot on the ride home to Alexandria.

He and Jordan collided once during the varsity game and contested the ball several times. They’ve been playing the sport for most of their lives and Josh said they have similar skills. Josh said he enjoys passing the ball. The varsity game was a key contest in the 19th District. Jake Jennings and Jarrod Anderson scored for Brossart (7-5-2). Senior Mason Lovelace scored both goals for the Camels (5-92). By rule, 19th District seeding games cannot end in a tie, so they went to 10 minutes of overtime then a shootout. “It really was a fun game,” said Rich Frommeyer, the twins’ father. “I was yelling for Josh to keep shooting after he had a shot on goal that hit the post and side net and then about three minutes later I was yelling to Jordan to keep shooting as he had two

shots on goal. We sat in the middle of the parents. I think they really enjoyed it, including the announcer.” Two days after their matchup, the Frommeyer twins were celebrating their 17th birthday together, though they were too busy playing and practicing to do much. The twins keep busy refereeing youth games and playing during the season. Jordan is also the placekicker for the Brossart football team. The Frommeyers have a large extended family and have a large following wherever they play. “It’s great, especially when they went to the game where I scored,” Josh said. “You could hear them cheer us on.” See more sports coverage at presspreps, www. facebook. com/presspreps or visit James on Twitter at @RecorderWeber.

NEWPORT – High school golf doesn’t have cheerleaders or rabid student sections. Usually, it’s just a player alone with his thoughts, clubs and the little white ball. That’s why the Newport Central Catholic High School boys golf team enjoyed some attention from their classmates on a cold Monday morning Oct. 3. The Thoroughbreds were about to head south to Bowling Green for the state tournament, the first time the program has qualified the full team to state. The players were recognized for their accomplishment in front of the students in the NCC gymnasium. Then, they got into cars and headed south for a practice round before the tourney started Oct. 4. “It was nice,” said NCC head coach Jeff Schulkens. “They deserved to be recognized by the student body. Everybody goes to football games, but in golf there’s not an opportunity for the kids to cheer for you.” The Thoroughbreds advanced to state after finishing second as a team in the Region 8 boys golf tournament Sept. 26.

ticular contribution or bit of lobbyist spending Lee Hamilton and a particular Community vote may be difRecorder ficult, but legisguest lators would be columnist superhuman to remain unaffected by these rivers of cash. If you’re in Congress, you have no choice but to devote much of your attention to people with a lot of money to spend on elections. It’s clear who gets dealt out of this process. You don’t find armies of lobbyists for the poor waiting outside committee rooms. And if there is a powerful anti-hunger movement on Capitol Hill, it’s escaped my notice. To be sure, issues that command broad public attention can make their way into the debate, whether or not lobbyists are involved. It took almost three years of the worst recession in memory for policy-makers and political leaders to start paying attention to job creation, but eventually the press of public concern became too much to ignore. Yet those instances are rare. In Washington, the issues that tend to get taken up are the ones that might mean hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars to a particular industry. They are complex matters, and usually invisible or of little obvious interest to the general public. But those are the issues on which lobbyists thrive. Lee Hamilton is director of the Center on Congress at Indiana University. He was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for 34 years.

Growing power of lobbyists Back in 1982, Mississippi’s powerful U.S. Sen. John C. Stennis faced a tough re-election fight. Advisers told him he had an ace up his sleeve: as chairman of the Armed Service Committee, he could raise bundles of campaign cash from defense contractors. But Stennis balked. “Would that be proper?” he asked. “I hold life and death over these companies.” It’s been three decades since that moment, and it’s safe to say that Stennis’s hesitation on principle is very hard to find in Washington these days. Quite the opposite: Members of Congress seek influential committee positions precisely because they guarantee campaign contributions and lavish spending by lobbyists. It’s no secret that the average American feels pretty cynical about Washington. It doesn’t help that cynicism when the roughly 13,000 registered lobbyists in Washington last year spent $3.5 billion on their work, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. They have every right to do this. Lobbying is free speech, protected by the First Amendment. And lobbyists serve a clear purpose: members of Congress today rely heavily on the information they provide. Yet most Americans are uneasy about lobbyists’ role. They do not think we have come to grips with the sheer amounts of money and influence-seeking that daily wash over Capitol Hill, into members’ campaign treasuries, and through the regulatory agencies. Drawing a line between a par-

Child identity theft is another issue we have talked about in the subcommittee this year. To protect children in foster care from becoming victims of identity theft, H.R. 2883 requires child welfare agencies to provide older foster youth with a copy of their credit report (if one exists), and assisting them in resolving any inaccuracies. This simple check early on can help to prevent an unwelcome surprise of bad credit due to identity theft, which could prevent a teen from obtaining credit or getting student loans for college after exiting the child welfare system. The bill does not add to the deficit, and is an example of how we can improve programs in a bipartisan way, while still living within our means. U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis, R-Hebron, is a member of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Regional health department benefits Northern Kentucky For 30 years now, the residents of Boone, Campbell, Grant and Kenton counties have been served by a single public health agency—the Northern Kentucky Health Department. In August 1981, the Boone County Fiscal Court voted to join with Kenton and Campbell Counties, which had been operating a two-county health agency for nine years. Grant County Fiscal Court joined one month later, in September 1981. The Health Department is an example of how regionalizing

Lynne Saddler Community Recorder guest columnist

services benefits our community. For example, diseases do not respect jurisdictional lines. As a regional agency, we are better equipped to identify and manage disease outbreaks that occur in Northern Kentucky. Administrative costs are

consolidated. Functions like human resources, payroll and accounting work across all four counties, instead of each county having to employ staff to handle these tasks. Special expertise is spread throughout the district. For example, reviewing plans for a new restaurant takes a specific skill set. With a district, one person can have this expertise and use it across all four counties. The Health Department works with other regional entities like St. Elizabeth, United Way, Vision 2015, and the Northern Ken-

tucky Chamber of Commerce to look at broad-based issues. Best practices are shared across multiple jurisdictions. For example, a youth tobacco program might be piloted at one school in Kenton County. The results of that could be shared with other schools throughout the district. We have the availability to see clients from different counties at any of our four county health centers. Clients can be seen at whichever site that’s closest to their home, school or workplace.

Our leaders in the 1970s and 1980s wisely put aside jurisdictional boundaries to join together to improve the health of all. I’m honored to lead the Northern Kentucky Health Department in its 30th year of serving Boone, Campbell, Grant and Kenton Counties and look forward to the ongoing work ahead of us in promoting and protecting the health of Northern Kentucky. Lynne M. Saddler, MD, MPH is the District Director of Health for the Northern Kentucky Health Department.

Kentucky Symphony kicks off 20th season

By Stephanie Salmons

When you attend a Kentucky Symphony Orchestra show, you never know what you’ll get. According to music director and founder James Cassidy, that’s one of the greatest compliments, in some regards, the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra has received over the years. The orchestra will have even more to offer patrons when it kicks off its 20th season at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8, at Florence Baptist Church at Mt. Zion, with “Of Rings and Myths.” Tickets are $28 for “A” seats and $23 for “B” seats. Prices for the “B” seats are reduced to $18 for seniors and $10 for students. Tickets can be purchased by calling 859-431-6216 or by visiting The show will compare composer Richard Wagner’s “Ring of Nibelung,” a cycle of four different operas, with the film scores from the “Lord of the Rings” movies. The comparative presentation celebrates “the mythology that inspired two epic scores about rings,” this season’s brochure reads. Doug Adams, author of “The Music of the Lord of the Rings Films,” will host the performance and examine the works of film score composer Howard Shore and Wagner. It’s a concert, but not as one would see a musical, Cassidy said. It’s also like a documentary and a lecture, he said, and the only place to find something like it is here. “It’s great to go out and be entertained and I think that’s what we should do (but) if you can take away something and learn something in addition to that 90 minutes or two hours you spend sitting in a hall, then it’s better,” Cassidy said. Programming is one of the selling points of the orchestra and is different than “anything you’d get anywhere in the country.” “Season 20 captures those moments the KSO does best – combining opera, film, big band jazz and classics with the spin,”

he said. Many performances come to mind when reflecting over the past 19 seasons, Cassidy said – from semi-staged productions of “West Side Story,” “Evita,” and “Sweeney Todd,” to concert opera production of “LaBoheme,” “Otello,” and “Rigoletto,” which paired local talent with artists from New York, and even a 1993 production of “Peter and the Wolf” with updated characters. “This was 1993, so imagine Marge Schott as the duck, Beavis as Peter, Ross Perot as grandpa and Earl Pitts as the Wolf,” Cassidy said. The “deep talent pool” in Northern Kentucky and the need

for Northern Kentucky to have “something to call its own” are some of the reasons Cassidy said the KSO was started. “You start something, then you see it grow and see it get a little better and better,” he said. “After a while you realize you created something that’s unique and special.” He is proud of the opportunities the KSO has provided over the past 19 seasons for both people attending and musicians. They’ve played for nearly 500,000 people and featured some 1,100 musicians over the years, Cassidy said.

BEST FRIENDS FOREVER Florence friends are closer than sisters By Patricia A. Scheyer Community Recorder Contributor

Florence resident Kathy Moughler came into Michelle Smith-Bates’ life at just the right time. Newly divorced and with a young son, Smith-Bates moved to Florence from Arizona, and felt lost and alone until she met Moughler through a mutual acquaintance. The two hit it off immediately. “Kathy is so up-front and honest,” said SmithBates. “She taught me how to live and how to stand up for myself. She helped me put things back together.” Moughler had never had a best friend who was female. A self-professed tomboy, Moughler thought she’d never have children, until she lived with SmithBates and her 3-year-old son. “That little boy taught

Michelle Bates-Smith and Kathy Moughler have been best friends for almost 20 years. me so much,” she said, mentioning that she is now married and mother of a young son. “Michelle accepted me unconditionally, and I still get a kick out of her. She taught me how to be feminine. We live close, and I depend on her, even if we don’t talk every

day.” “I think we’ll be friends forever,” said Smith-Bates. “If I’m unhappy, she knows it, and she’s there for me. She puts a smile on my face. She’s even closer than my sisters.” Check for more local news.

“The great thing our art requires that technology does not – what we do requires people to gather, both on stage and off,” Cassidy said. “That’s kind of a neat thing because that’s one of the characteristics that makes us human.”

A nice, slow way to a very good crockpot roast Every spring and fall, I check my pantry herbs and spices. Since this time of year many of them go on sale, it’s a good idea to do the “sniff” test and check which ones need replacing. Check out my blog at (Cooking with Rita) for a video on how to buy and store dry herbs and spices. You’ll love my tip about putting an “open” date on the container.

Lottie’s easy crockpot pot roast

Lottie Hilgefort is my daughter-in-law, Jess’, sister and typical of a very busy mom. You may recognize this recipe as I’ve shared my version in the past. After making Lottie’s today, hers is my new “go to” pot roast. It’s that good. Lottie said: “ I adapted this from different recipes I liked until I came to perfection. It is so delicious and moist. I always serve with mashed potatoes, as you have lots of delicious gravy.” 3-4 lb. roast (whatever looks good and is on sale) 1 envelope beefy-onion dry soup mix 1 can cream of mushroom soup 1 soup can good red wine 3 tablespoons flour 2 beef bouillon cubes Place roast in sprayed crockpot. Mix remaining ingredients and pour over.

Cook on low eight to 10 hours.

Dutch apple pie Rita jam

T h i s would be great with a pork roast, or as a breakfast jam. And I’ll bet you could melt this with some apple cider or apple juice and make a terrific topping for ice cream and cake. Make it while apples are in season.

Heikenfeld Rita’s kitchen

4 cups prepared fruit (about 1 pound Granny Smith or other tart green apples, 1⁄2 cup raisins and 11⁄4 cups water) 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1 teaspoon or so cinnamon 1 ⁄4 teaspoon allspice 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar 4 cups granulated sugar 1 box dry pectin Peel, core and grind or finely chop fruit. Add raisins and water. Measure 4 total cups into large pot. Stir in lemon juice, cinnamon and allspice. Stir pectin into fruit. Bring mixture to full rolling boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Quickly stir in both sugars. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly one minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and


After making Lottie’s easy crockpot pot roast today, hers is my new “go to” pot roast. It’s that good. skim off foam. Ladle quickly into sterilized, hot jelly jars and wipe rims and threads. Seal. Process in a water bath for five minutes. This makes the jam shelfstable. You can also simply cook up the jam without putting in a water bath, and store in the refrigerator up to three months or in the freezer up to nine months.

close to Crystal’s and I hope he’ll be willing to share it with us for Connie, who requested this heirloom favorite. Thirty-minute veggie soup updated with kale and corn. Marsha Barker made

my recipe but substituted kale (added it at the beginning of cooking time) and also some fresh corn from the cob. “Everyone raved,” she said. Granola bar nutrition. Lois Daley made the granola bar recipe I put in the paper recently and everyone loved them, but she wanted to know if I could provide nutritional information. I don’t have software, or really, the background, to do this. Paper bag apple pie recipe possibly not suited for some ovens. I got a call from a reader who said she’d made this in her gas oven, but when she baked the pie in her electric oven, the bag caught fire. I have made it in my electric oven with no problem, but ovens and paper varies, and I’m glad she shared this information. To be cautious, make a “bag” out of parchment paper, which is totally oven proof.

Tips from Rita’s kitchen

Homemade produce wash for apples and other hard-skinned fruit.

Crystal chili update. From Terry, who said the recipe died with the last surviving family member of the restaurant “a few months ago.” Terry said he makes one


Zuppa Toscana like Olive Garden’s. Wow, our readers sure like the paper. Steve Braden took his to Chicago and called in while reading it. “I’d like a recipe similar to Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana,” he said. Now I have one that I’ve developed, but I’d love to share yours, so please be willing to share if you’ve got a good recipe for this. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.

next spring. You’ll also find many sales in the fall to help entice gardeners to Ron Wilson plant – that makes fall a In the great time to garden plant and save! Fall is spring bulb planting time. Tulips, daffodils, crocus, hyacinths, snow drops, alliums - all those spring bloomers are planted now, for next year’s colors. And by the way, be sure to plant spring flowering bulbs in containers (overwinter in unheated garage or shed) so you’ll have spring colors to enjoy indoors, on the patio, or wherever you’d like! Fall is for composting all those falling leaves, season’s end dead foliage from perennials and annuals (don’t use diseased foliage), left-overs from your salads, used coffee grounds and banana peels. Grind these all up and get them cooking in the compost pile.

Getting that pile cooking now will have your reaping the benefits of fine compost in 2012. Fall is for amending soils. Now is the perfect time to add larger amounts of soil amendments to that veggie garden, annual beds, future planting areas, etc., and till it in. Basically the soil amendments will have 6-7 months to begin to break down in the soil before it is planting time. This is also a great time to have your soils tested, so any needed adjustments in nutrients can be made, again, getting ready for next year’s gardening. So now you can see why gardening this fall really does get your yard ready for gardening next spring! It’s a great time of the year. Don’t throw in the trowel and hang up the shovel. Keep up the gardening. Ron Wilson is marketing manager for Natorp’s Garden Stores and is the garden expert for 55KRC-AM and Local 12. Reach him at columns@

St. Joseph Drama Club to host Graveyard Gala event Oct. 22 The Drama Club at St. Joseph Cold Spring is introducing a new fundraiser for the fall season. For the first time ever, this 35-year-old parish organization will host A Graveyard Gala: Halloween Bash 2011 as a major fundraiser for the parish. The gala is scheduled for

Credit Card payments only. Tickets are non-refundable.


As the 2011 season winds down, it’s time to start gardening for 2012! Fall is turf time. What you do to your lawn in the fall (core aerating, seeding, feeding, etc.) will be the backbone to how well your lawn can perform next year. The two fall lawn feedings (early and late fall) are the two most important feedings of the entire season. And believe it or not, mid- to late-October is one of the best time to go after any pesky weeds in the lawn using lawn weed killers. Fall is the best time for planting new trees and shrubs. Even though their tops are shutting down for the season, their “bottoms” keep growing. More roots are developed during the fall and early winter than any other time of the year. Natural rainfall helps to water our plants in, and with the cooler temperatures, it’s easier on the plants, and on us as well! So fall-planted plants get a jump start on those planted

Andy Aiello wins Vision 2015 award Vision 2015 recently named Andy Aiello, general manager of the Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky, the inaugural winner of the Young Visionary Award. The Vision 2015 Young Visionary Award is presented to a young professional who has made an impact on the vibrancy of the region through their personal and professional efforts and success. The recipient exemplifies strong leadership, commitment to long term wellbeing of place and cross disciplinary thinking on complex issues; providing a model for how the region can be vibrant through their work and that of other regional stewards, an

announcement states. “It is amazing and humbling to be recognized by Vision 2015,” Aiello said. “The credit really goes to the employees at TANK who work so hard, everyday, to support our community. I am fortunate to be the one to represent our organization and to share this passion with the region.” Aiello has worked for TANK for seven years. He is responsible for the overall management of the regional transit system , which provides approximately 4 million passenger trips a year and has a $20 million annual operating budget. Prior to joining TANK, Aiello served as senior planner for Atlanta’s metropoli-

tan planning organization, the Atlanta Regional Commission, where he managed a large-scale transit corridor study. Aiello began his career in Atlanta with the Georgia Department of Transportation managing the environmental compliance process for major transportation projects. Aiello works closely with Northern Kentucky county governments to continue providing service at the most effective levels while keeping administrative costs as low as possible in spite of rising fuel prices. He has also worked with private developers, employers, employees and business owners to provide transit services to meet the needs

of Northern Kentucky’s economy and workforce. Aiello “Vision 2015 is honored to present this award to Andrew Aiello, one of the many young professionals that contribute to the goals of Vision 2015, an important catalyst for progress for the Northern Kentucky community, with the goal of creating a plan for its future,” said Vision 2015 president Bill Scheyer. “This important plan is designed for action to unlock Northern Kentucky’s full potential and outpace the country’s most progressive metropolitan areas.”
