Judge-executive race continues Nov. 2 By Chris Mayhew

Voters will be asked to choose who they want to lead the county for the next four years Nov. 2 as the Republican incumbent Judgeexecutive is challenged by a Democratic newcomer to county politics. Democrat Andrea Janovic of Newport is challenging incumbent Republican Steve Pendery of Fort Thomas for the job. Pendery is seeking a third term in office, and defeated fellow Republican Kevin Sell in the May primary. Janovic, 43, an attorney and a member of the Newport Indepen-

dent School District for five years, said Pendery has had eight years and is out of touch with residents. “I have observed over the last several years what I call an increasing level of disconnect between the fiscal court in general, but in particular between the office of judge-executive and the

people of Campbell County,” Janovic said. Pendery, 56, who owns a family-run insurance business in Fort Thomas and is also an attorney, said the county has done a good job of managing the budget and needs to continue to live within its means. “We spend less per resident than just about every other government except for a few small cities,” he said. Pendery said there are two Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district projects that could each bring $1 billion of investment to the county when they are fully built. That will be a big impact on

county revenue since the total valuation of the county is about $5 billion, he said. “The economy is in a mess, but we are poised as a recovery happens to do well,” Pendery said. Pendery said there has been heavy investment in the county on transportation infrastructure and more is on the way as the state prepares to invest as much as $30 million to install a completely new surface on Interstate275 in Campbell County. “I am part of a larger team that has delivered well for Northern Kentucky,” he said.

Dayton candidates talk goals By Amanda Joering Alley

In the upcoming elections in November, four incumbents will face six challengers for the six seats on Dayton City Council. Challenger Charles Adams said he is running because he feels like the citizens and their rights are being overlooked and he wants to represent them. “I don’t want to see any more wasteful spending, and I want stop tax increases,” Adams said. “I’m mainly in this for the people, so I want to make sure they can easily contact me with their problems.” Incumbent Robert “Bobby” Allen, who has been on council for about 23 years, said a big reason he wants to stay on council is to see through the city’s billion dollar riverfront development plans, which will give the city a tax break. “I want to keep working to lower taxes and getting grants to improve the city and build up the city’s main street by getting new businesses in there,” Allen said. Incumbent Dennis Ashford, who has been on council for about 18 years, said he has worked hard to improve the city and still has more he wants to accomplish

including lowering taxes, continuing with new developments and bringing more money into the city. “When you have money you can do so much more, like hire more employees, do more street improvements and continue to fix up the parks,” Ashford said. Incumbent Virgil Boruske, who has served on council for about 12 years, said he would also like to see the city’s new development through and bring in more industrial projects to the riverfront. “I also want to keep working on our budget and make sure we continue spending the taxpayers’ money wisely,” Boruske said. Challenger William “Bill” Burns said he is running because he doesn’t like the direction the city is heading and wants to bring back small town values by building up the central business district and working in partnership with Bellevue. “I’m not running because I’m a politician, I’m just a concerned citizen with a love for this city,” Burns said. Challenger Jerry Gifford, who served two terms on council in the past, said he just wants to work to continue to improve the city and attract new businesses. “I think the city is going in the

right just direction, so I don’t really have a set agenda, I just want to see what’s going on and what I can do to help,” Gifford said. Challenger Joe Neary, who has served on the city’s historic and main street commissions, said he hopes to get more residents involved in the city and address issues of property values in the city before working on new development. “We have to take care of what we have before worrying too much about what may come on the riverfront,” Neary said. “I think Dayton has a lot of potential, it just needs some more forward vision.” Incumbent Cathy Lenz Volter, who has been on the council for about 14 years, said she wants to continue promoting the city and working on future developments while working on blight issues and the main street revitalization. “I love this town and the people in it, and I feel like Dayton has a lot to offer,” Volter said. “I like being a representative of all the citizens and be here if they have issues or problems.” Challengers Penny Mastruserio Hurtt and Nancy Klette Martin were unable to be reached for comment.

Major interstate roadwork is ahead in Campbell County, and also Kenton and Boone counties. Campbell County Judge-executive Steve Pendery said in an interview about his campaign that there’s been a great deal of investment in Campbell County’s transportation network in the past (i.e. U.S. 27 widening) and that more is on the way soon. “The state is going to do not just an overlay, but an in-depth re-working of I-275 through Campbell County,” Pendery said. The state also has planned work for I-275 through Kenton and Boone counties at some point, he said. Pendery said the maintenance requirements of the interstates in the county haven’t been kept up with well in the past, and it’s going to be a more expensive fix now. More than patching is required, he said. In Campbell County alone the cost of the roadwork could be as much as $30 million, Pendery said. A variety of interstate projects are coming to Northern Kentucky, said Nancy Wood, public information officer for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s District Six Department of Highways. The upcoming projects include making improvements to I-275 and sections of I-471 in Campbell County, Wood said. Wood said there will at least be some bridge painting along I-275 in Kenton County, and there will also be a continuation of work to install cables in center median areas along I-275 in Campbell County. Wood said she is still working to put together a time-frame for the public of when the work will happen and how drivers can deal with the work including ideas for alternate routes, carpooling and possibly even using bicycles for travel more. “For sure the upcoming year, 2011 is going to have a lot of interstate road work,” she said.

Terms are a concern to initiative backers By Chris Mayhew

Proponents of a ballot initiative to switch the style of representation on Campbell County’s government want people to understand the name they should associate with the idea is “justice of the peace� and not “magistrate.� Organizers of an Oct. 12 debate in Southgate and news articles have used the magistrate term, and that’s not what voters will see on the ballot, said Tim Nolan, of California, a proponent

“We don’t want people to just think we’re just expanding the number of people who can marry somebody.�

for the ballot initiative. Nolan will participate in the debate at the Soughgate Community Center, 301 W. Walnut St., from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 12. The name of the debate has since been changed from a magistrate vs. commissioner debate to a justice of the peace vs. commissioner debate.

The yes or no question voters will see on the ballot at the polls Nov. 2 is: “Are you in favor of a return to a fiscal court composed of the county judge/executive and eight (8) justices of the peace who shall represent specific districts within the county?� Nolan said he doesn’t

want people to hear discussions about magistrate and then be confused when they go to the polls because they see a different term. “You know, are they even going to bother to vote on the issue?� he said. People also may not realize if the ballot initiative is approved, the government switch will eliminate the need for the current three justice of the peace format because it’s a constitutionally mandated job, Nolan said. Currently, there are three justice of the peace districts for each of the three commissioner districts. Their primary duty is to marry people. If the government switch

The county has also worked with Northern Kentucky University to ensure the intellectual capital of their programs are intended to be used for the benefit of the community, he said. “If you have a mismatch of skills, then you don’t reach full employment,� Pendery said. On smoking, Pendery said he supports some kind of legislation, but said the only reason government is involved in the issue is because years ago the surgeon general declared definitively that second hand smoke is harmful to people’s health. “My thoughts on that ban is it’s not a smoking ban that’s being talked

and Commissioners Association. The association uses the common name of magistrates because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what most people use in the counties that have a justice of the peace system of government, said Richard Tanner, executive director of the association. Tanner said the word magisterial district is in the state law many times, and he believes thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where the term originated. Magisterial districts used to have their own court and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where constables came in too, with each district requiring a constable to make sure a person went to the magisterial court, he said.

Nolan said. If voters approve the government switch idea it will also increase the number of constables in the county from the current three to eight, one for each justice of the peace district.

Janovic Pendery about,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are being asked to step outside when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a public place.â&#x20AC;? Janovic said the judgeexecutive needs to turn attention to the operation of the county budget that has gotten â&#x20AC;&#x153;a bit out of handâ&#x20AC;? including the county golf course and parks, bus service contributions, and the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s IT department, she said. The county should explore leasing the county golf course land to a private company that will manage it so the county makes some money off of it, and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lose money in the process, she said. Also, the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s IT department is possibly providing cities with a service at a lower-than market rate, and that might not be the best thing for taxpayers, Janovic said. The judge-executive job is outlined well in state law, and isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t what Pendery makes it, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We see Mr. Pendery turning into a self-made diplomat and wheeler and dealer, and unfortunately weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not really seeing a bang for the buck,â&#x20AC;? she said. Janovic said the Ovation

development in Newport is seemingly totally stalled, and other projects including Manhattan Harbour in Dayton and the Kroger and Target projects in Newport are painfully slow in coming along. While the Kroger and Target are more in line with the desires and hopes of county residents, projects like Ovation that Pendery has championed arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily, she said. Janovic said she proposes forming a citizens group to inform county leadership what the real goals of county residents are. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As an example, the smoking ban is a great example of disconnect,â&#x20AC;? she said. Residents have not been informed along the way until recently what was happening in the process of drafting a potential smoking ban and have had little or no knowledge of the terms being thrown around, Janovic said. Janovic said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a smoker, but is against the smoking ban idea, favoring instead a process where county businesses could decide their own smoking policies each year and register their decision with the county. In a difficult economy, why target businesses?, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why do you need to add to, No. 1, the complexity of running a business; but No. 2, add to the cost?â&#x20AC;? Janovic said.

In Cold Spring, nine vie for six seats By Chris Mayhew





Noel 1999 to 2002 and from 2006 to 2009. Noel said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lived in the city for 30 years with her Oehrle husband Paul where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve raised their son, and her experience gives her insight to how the city works. Noel said she will always put residents first. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to keep city taxes down while staying focused on keeping our city services excellent,â&#x20AC;? Noel said. Stuart Oehrle, 45, is seeking a fifth term. Oehrle is a chemist for an instrument testing company and teaches at Northern Kentucky University. Oehrle said he brings an analytical thought process to council and his biggest priority is keeping the city fiscally sound. The city needs to continue not to

assess citizens for streets/sidewalks that the residents already are paying taxes for despite growth patterns flattening in the city, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very proud of the fact that the property tax rates for 10 years ago were higher than they were today,â&#x20AC;? Oehrle said. Adam Craig Sandfoss, a first time candidate for council, did not immediately respond to messages left with him. Jason Schnelle, 39, a financial analyst for Mammotome, said he wants to represent the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newer residents. With a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in accounting from NKU, and an M.B.A. from Xavier University, Schnelle said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well qualified. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also chairman of the Granite Spring Home Owners Association. Schnelle said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerned that as the city is maturing, the city has borrowed more than $1 million for city projects. Schnelle said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerned about keeping property taxes low and also that there has been talk on council this year of giving appropriate raises to the employees in city government at a time when most employers are either cutting

back or freezing employeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wages. Stephen Taylor, 55, said he wants to give back to his community and bring a fresh perspective to council. Taylor has been chairman of the city planning and zoning commission for five years, and on P&Z for seven years. Taylor said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s committed to continuing to protect property values, and that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a firm believer in limited government. Being a small business owner and his experience with multi-million budgets as a director at a Fortune 500 company makes him well qualified to be on council, Taylor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having served on Planning and Zoning, I am already familiar with most of the issues the city faces,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Voters will choose from among three newcomers and six veterans of city council in Cold Spring on the Nov. 2 ballot. For six council seats, there are nine candidates seeking the two-year term elected position. Lou Gerding, 61, a project manager and communications consultant, said his leadership experience of being on council for the last 20 years is valuable. Gerding said he wants to continue to support the police by giving them all the tools they need to protect the public, and taking care of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fiscal responsibilities without raising taxes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we need to control the spending, and continue the strategic plan, and also to replace the streets with no assessments on the property owners and at the same time keeping taxes in line,â&#x20AC;? Gerding said. David A. Guidugli, 58, was appointed this summer to fill the remainder of Janis Reimanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unexpired term. Guidugli, is retired and works part-time for a marketing company. Since 1994 he has spent 12 years on council. Guidugli said he wants the city to pursue more code enforcement and hire someone on a contract basis to do the work instead of the police chief doing the work as is now the case. Guidugli said he wants to continue the street replacement program at no assessment to property owners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All that stuff, I figure it helps keep our property values in line with where they need to be,â&#x20AC;? he said. Brenda Rodgers Helton, 53, a full-time caregiver and homemaker, was elected in 2008 and was on council from 1988-1998. Helton said she wants to make sure the city where she raised her children remains a nice place to live by sustaining the same level of police and other services. Helton said, as a woman, she brings a different perspective. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right or wrong, like it or not, we see things differently,â&#x20AC;? she said. Rob Moore, 44, owner of two businesses in the city including Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Garage, is seeking a fifth term on council. Moore said he wants to ensure police have all the equipment they need and maintain a tight budget. Moore said the city was able to borrow money at an interest rate of 2.9 percent for the street replacement program, an exceptionally good rate attained in part because of the economy, and also since the city is fiscally sound. The city also received better than expected construction bids on the street projects, so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a savings in moving some projects that werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t scheduled to be done until a year or two from now up to this year, he said.

and fun to play with,” said Clegg, a Villa Hills resident. “That’s why I like doing what I do, because I get to be around them all the time.” Clegg, a student at Turkey Foot Middle, has been serving as a foster parent for Frankie’s Furry Friends Rescue, a small dog rescue center in Alexandria, since they opened in January. In that time, she’s taken in nine dogs and managed to adopt eight of them out, with Bristol, a quiet lovable Chihuahua, the newest to be searching for a permanent home. For a girl who also runs her own dog-sitting business, serving as a foster parent for dogs in need of some love has been a blast. “Before we got the first one, my mom and dad had to have a long talk, but they decided to let me do it, and it’s just been going since then,” recalled Allie. “I’m just glad I can help out and try to find some good homes for the dogs. Allie’s dad, David, said the burden of having an extra dog or two around the house actually hasn’t been much of a burden at all,

with the entire family pitching in to help out. The Cleggs also have two dogs of their own who haven’t minded the extra playmates. “It’s been a great experience for us, because all of our kids have done a great job of taking responsibility for them,” he said. David Clegg also said he’s been impressed with the way Allie has helped stick to the goal of being a foster parent – not necessarily an easy task for an 11year-old who loves animals. “She understands that the goal is to find them a new home and not keep them here,” he said. “The biggest thing we can do is to help socialize the dog so it’s ready for a new home, and that’s been the fun part for us.” Allie said that letting go of the foster dogs actually hasn’t been too hard, especially when she knows they’re headed to a good home. The length of the adoption process can vary, but she said the longest she’s ever had any foster dog has been about one month, with most of them finding homes fairly quickly.


Allie Clegg of Villa Hills holds Bristol, the latest foster dog she is trying to adopt out. Clegg, who also runs a dog-sitting business, has taken in nine foster dogs this year through Frankie’s Furry Friends Rescue, a small dog rescue center in Alexandria. “Once I see they’re in good hands with people who are going to love them, then I’m happy,” she said. “It’s a little sad to watch them go, but it makes it okay when you know they’re going to have a real home.” Kathy Thacker, the secretary of Frankie’s Furry Friends, said Allie’s efforts haven’t gone unnoticed. The center, which takes in dogs under 25 pounds, many from puppy mills, has adopted out close to 30 dogs since opening their doors in January. “If we had a prize for the most dogs adopted out, Allie would win it hands down,” said Thacker with a laugh. “She’s just a great girl with

a heart of gold - we can’t say enough about her and her family for what they’ve done.” For her part, Allie said she just wants to continue finding good homes for as many dogs as possible, and if that means taking on the sacrifice of a few more cuddly playmates around the house, so be it. “Sometimes I let them sleep in my bed with me,” she said, giggling. “It’s just fun to have them around the house and to know that we’re helping them out.” For more about Frankie’s Furry Friends Rescue, including photos of dogs available for adoption, visit www.frankiesfurryfriends. org or call 635-9114.

C o u n t y Oct. 14You’re like 18. ‘Wow, I want T h e to climb that B y r n e s routinely tree.’” offer guidShelly ed tree Byrne c l i m b i n g classes for both beginners and experienced climbers using ropes and safety harnesses at A.J. Jolly Park south of Alexandria and also at Hocking Hills in Rockbridge, Ohio. Shelly Byrne said they chose the Beechridge Conference Center because it has some of the most majestic trees in Kentucky. “They (the trees) really speak when you go there,” Byrne said. “You’re like ‘Wow, I want to climb that tree.’” Rendezvous participants will climb trees together and attend educational sessions on everything from a history of recreational tree climbing, rope work tips and tricks, and “Yoga in the Trees” and a “tree dancing” class.

Jolly Park Saturday, April 24, 2010. EarthJoy will host the ninth annual national Tree Climbers Rendezvous at Beechridge Conference Center near Visalia Oct. 14-18. It’s the first time the national tree climbing rendezvous has been in the Cincinnati area and it won’t be back again for a long while, said Shelly Byrne. Previously, the rendezvous has been in locations including Colorado and Mississippi and in the Redwood trees of Oregon. Unique activities at the rendezvous will include the setting up of a “tree boat village” where people can spend the night up in a tree

in special hammocks, Byrne said. There will also be a rescue course for advanced climbers and Jason Neumann, an experimental educational specialist for the Cincinnati Nature Center, will lead a vertical nature hike, she said. There are daily rates available for the rendezvous and opportunities for beginners who are new to tree climbing to come for a single day if they’re curious

about what it’s all about, Byrne said. “We get into the trees and play together and then what happens is we’re all laughing because you’re in the trees with nature and all these cool people,” she said.

Superintendent, schools on Facebook

By Chris Mayhew

Campbell County Schools Superintendent Anthony Strong has his own Facebook fan page now. It’s not so much an attempt to be cool, but to connect with immediacy online as many students and parents often do already. Since the page was started near the beginning of September, Strong has posted photos of a dance at Grant’s Lick Elementary School and from a sports event he attended. He’s even posted the scores of athletic games. There’s also been more serious posts like clueing people into a meeting he was having with a group of parents about preventing high school dropouts. The Facebook page is still new, so the content is a work in progress, Strong said.

“I see it as a way for me to send out real quick, positive things because I can access Facebook from my phone as a contact,” he said. Strong said he can post links and people can comment on his posts, but can’t just post anything they want onto the pages “wall” because it’s a fan page. Strong said he’s always tried to be a superintendent who is accessible to the community and students. It’s great when students recognize teachers and administrators out in public, he said. That way the students feel comfortable enough that they can come up and talk to the administrator anytime, Strong said. It’s not his motivation to make students think he’s cool by starting the page, he said. “Certainly, I want them to feel like it’s an opportunity for them

because they are the people we serve, and kids obviously are on Facebook,” Strong said. In addition to Strong’s Facebook fan page, almost all of the district’s schools have fan pages including Campbell Ridge, Reiley and Grant’s Lick elementary schools and Campbell County Middle School, said Juli Hale, director of community relations for the district. The rest of the schools are working on their Facebook pages, Hale said. With so many people using the social media service already, it’s just another avenue to reach parents and, in some cases, students, she said. They can even receive notices through Facebook on their cell phones about last minute event announcements and programs on tight deadlines, Hale said. “We’re kind of meeting them where they are,” she said.


Love one another

Fourth-grade teacher Terri Shields of St. Joseph Cold Spring knows her students work better as a team when they take time to get to know and understand one another. To help foster that spirit of caring and concern for each other, the students work together in pairs to write acrostic poems about each other using their partner’s first name. They learn about each other’s lives, their likes and dislikes, and put this information in a poem which they share with the class. This process unites the class and instills the students with a spirit of charity, which allows them to work together better as a team, as a class, as one.

Career fair engaging entire high school By Chris Mayhew

Students are frequently asked what type of career they’re interested in pursuing, and each fall a college and career fair at Campbell County High School helps students in grades 9-12 work on their answer. The high school is anticipating representatives from about 20

professions and officials from more than 25 colleges at the school’s annual college and career fair in the gym from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 19. “The thing is kind of for them to even start thinking about, is that something I want to do,” said Linda Bates, coordinator of the school’s Youth Service Center. Careers being represented will include a chef, judge, law enforce-

ment, various construction trades, professional sales, a dental assistant, and a composer and singer of songs, Bates said. The school is especially seeking a physical therapist to participate in the career fair, she said. Students will be required to go and speak with some of the career professionals so they can get an idea of if they are interested in that type of work and write down

their thoughts about the careers represented, Bates said. “Our goal this year is to have a questionnaire to where they have to interact with the people,” Bates said. Students will also be learning about what type educational paths match up well with specific career fields, she said. Hopefully, parents can talk to their children both before and after

the career fair, and start a conversation about the future, Bates said. “Really it will just create some dialogue between students and parents about where they want to go after high school,” she said. For details about volunteering at the school’s college and career field call Linda Bates at 635-4161 or e-mail Linda.Bates@campbell.

Grants benefit student news and reading programs at St. Catherine By Amanda Joering Alley

NEWS FROM NKU NorseMedia receives four pro video awards

Northern Kentucky University’s NorseMedia won four awards and one finalist recognition in the 2010 Philo T. Farnsworth Awards, an annual video competition that honors the best in community media productions from Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana and Michigan. Student producers from NKU entered their work into the highlycompetitive professional division. The awards were in the following

categories, with project title: Arts/Cultural Awareness, “The Historic Southgate House”; Webcast, “Walkthrough of the Southgate House”; Community Event Coverage, “Oktoberfest 2009”; and Computer-Generated Art/Animation, “Revelation Trail: Lilith’s Story, Act I.” The finalist recognition was in Arts/Cultural Awareness for “Faculty Art Show 2009.” The competition is coordinated by the Central States Region of the Alliance for Community Media.

Two separate grants for $950 from the Greater Cincinnati Foundation are helping to improve programs at St. Catherine of Siena. Principal Doug Lonneman said after years of budget cuts, teacher Dave Schlachter volunteered to put together a grant writing team, which has resulted in the school receiving $15,000 to $20,000 in grants in the past three years. “Doing everything it takes to write a grant is very time consuming, and Dave has really stepped up and the school has really benefited from his work,” Lonneman said. One of the most recent grants

received is going to benefit the school’s student news program, which began two years ago after the school received a grant from Best Buy that they were able to use to buy video equipment. Lonneman said after the students got involved in the program and started videotaping plays and news stories, they found that the sound quality was lacking because they had to use to camera’s internal microphone. “The grant will allow us to purchase a high quality video camera system that allows for external microphones to be used,” Lonneman said. “The kids are really excited to start taping a live TV news show soon.” The other grant from the foun-

dation is going towards the school’s Accelerated Reader program. Lonneman said the program used to be federally funded and that money was used to buy books for the school’s library. Now, because of these kinds of grants, the program will keep going and keep the kids excited about reading, Lonneman said. “Since St. Catherine has been involved in the Accelerated Reader program our students’ excitement about reading has been tremendous,” said Librarian Sue Perkins. “The grant we received toward new library books will enhance our library collection and add to the students’ enthusiasm for reading.”

Catholic Order of Foresters offers tuition help Catholic Order of Foresters, headquartered in Naperville, Ill., awarded $25,000 in tuition reimbursement to local Catholic Order of Foresters youth members attending Catholic school, kindergarten through high school.

Bryan ties Mustangs on Senior Night By James Weber

As the famous phrase goes, a tie is like kissing your sister. For Kaitlin Bryan, a tie was just a way to preserve an unbeaten season at home for her “sisters” on the Campbell County girls’ soccer team. Bryan’s goal with less than two minutes remaining salvaged a 1-1 tie with rival Bishop Brossart Sept. 29. The Camels were undefeated at home this year with as the school honored Bryan and the other 10 seniors on the team before the game. “We were not accepting a loss tonight,” Bryan said. “We had a big group of 11 girls, and we were not accepting that at all. We haven’t lost on this field this season, so that motivated everybody.” Bryan, the Camels’ leading scorer the past two years, connected on her 10th goal of this year after a diving save by junior goalkeeper Megan Rauch. Rauch started a quick fast

break the other way, and Bryan won a one-on-one race with a Brossart defender before depositing the ball inside the right post. “We try quick transitionals at practice all the time,” Bryan said. “We all wanted to come out here and focus, do our best on the field, make sure we have good memories and not let anybody down.” Bryan also had a clutch second-half goal in a home tie against Newport Central Catholic. “One of our goals was not to lose at home,” said Camel head coach Dave Morris. “I don’t think any Campbell County team has done that. They don’t quit.” Campbell ended the game 8-5-4, Brossart 5-83. Abby Stadtmiller scored for Brossart. The tie kept the teams in a deadlock for third place in seeding for the 19th District Tournament. Newport Central Catholic and Highlands tied for first. Both ties will be broken by a coin flip. The district tourney is the week of Oct. 11.


Campbell County senior Kaitlin Bryan poses with her parents during Senior Night festivities before the teams’ 1-1 tie Sept. 29 at Campbell County. Campbell started the season 1-3 but has found its rhythm since the return of senior Carolynn Dreyer, a key leader on defense. She suffered a dislocated kneecap over the summer and has played the second half of the season with a big knee brace. “Since she’s come back we’ve had one loss,” Morris

said. “She leads the way on our defense.” Other seniors are Chelsea Strouse, Catrina Lloyd, Sydney White, Sarah Carroll, Megan Nehus, Anna Carrigan, Brittani Orth, Julie Ampfer and Bridget Donoghue. “We’re all really close,” Bryan said. “We do team bonding activities. We’ve all

been close for a long time.” Carrigan is second on the team with five goals. Rauch has seven shutouts. Brossart head coach Terry Bray is proud of the way his team has matured this season. The Mustangs have three seniors and two starters returning from last year in Maria Silbersack and Nicole Ridder. Stephanie Ritter and Carmen Enzweiler are other seniors and were honored at the Campbell game as well. Ritter played despite suffering bruised ribs in a car accident earlier that day. Stadtmiller and Silbersack were tied for team leadership with six goals apiece. “This has been a whole year of a learning experience,” said Bray, who led Holy Cross to the 2003 state final. “From July 15 until now, it’s been a great transformation. I’m really proud of them. We’re finishing better now and defending better. We were probably better defensively early, but now it has evened out.”

’09 success helps NewCath netters in ’10 By Adam Turer

At this time last year, Newport Central Catholic’s volleyball team was getting ready to embark on a surprising run to the state semifinals. This year, the postseason challenges will seem more familiar to the Thoroughbreds, who return several starters from last season’s team. The regular season has been a big challenge and the ’Breds were a slightly disappointing 11-14 heading into the final week of the regular season. Head coach Vicki Fleissner is hopeful that some of the regular season losses will translate to postseason victories.

“We played a real tough schedule and lost some tough matches,” Fleissner said. “We hope the tougher schedule will help us in the long run.” A five-set loss to Cincinnati Seton Saturday, Oct. 2 was an accurate snapshot of the Thoroughbreds’ 2010 season. Facing a quality opponent, the ’Breds battled before losing focus late and letting victory slip away. Playing power programs like Sacred Heart and Assumption (both losses) should also help NewCath as postseason play begins. “We gave up some tough victories early in the year,” Fleissner said. “We are still trying to fine-tune our mental toughness.” This year’s roster is deep with juniors who played

key roles as sophomores during the 2009 run to the state final four. There were some significant changes on the court. With an experienced and talented group returning, Fleissner and her staff worked on playing a more up-tempo style this season. The players are still working on fully adapting to the new system. “Most of our girls play club volleyball and can handle the quicker pace,” Fleissner said. “We’ve been trying a couple of new things defensively and implementing a quicker style of play.” The veteran leaders on the team complement one another. Junior setter Taylor Snyder runs the offense. Junior outside hitter Liz Gru-

enschlaeger provides a calming on court presence, according to Fleissner. Junior middle hitter Maggie O’Day has been putting her game together over the past few weeks. Outside hitter Sarah Suedkamp, the only senior starter, provides senior leadership. “We hope to have some role players step up over these next few weeks,” Fleissner said. The deep postseason run last year should help the Thoroughbreds as they begin postseason play Oct. 12 against Newport at Dayton. “The postseason experience that the girls got last year should help get rid of any nerves in District and Regional play,” said Fleissner. “I think our team has

the confidence that we can win any match and get back to state.”

Vote for Rachford

I want to recommend Bill Rachford as the clear choice for mayor of Alexandria. Bill and I have known each other about five years. Our association has been via the Boy Scouts of America. We are Eagle Scouts and members of the local Eagle Scout Association. We’re both members of the Scholarship Committee. Bill has been committee chairperson since we met. It is our committees’ job to select one Eagle Scout each year to receive a college scholarship. His leadership through some tough decisions has been a calming force. As with any professional association you get to know those you work with on many levels. Bill’s integrity, caring nature and dedication to getting the job done in a quality manner is nothing short of exemplary. His professional career as a top insurance agent gave him financial skills and taught him the how to set goals and achieve them. I hesitate to mention religion in the political process these days; suffice it to say he leads a life that is true to his spiritual beliefs and is a role model for others. As a veteran I want to recognize his Air Force service and tell you he is a true patriot. There is nothing I would not trust Bill to do and do well. I enjoy working with him and fully support him as your next mayor. Jim Peterman Union

Scouts thank program

I would like to take the time to thank the Northern Kentucky Solid Waste Department for hosting the Cash for Trash Program. The boys and young men in Scout Troop 75 from Alexandria along with adult volunteers cleaned up five miles of roads in southern Campbell County. What was surprising and scary was the amount of beer cans found along the roads. The roads that we cleaned up last year had less new trash; maybe by keeping our roads clean the more people will care. The money earned from the work will go into each boy’s Scout account to be used for Scout-related actives, such as summer camp

Kidwell is best choice for constable

It is important for us to keep service-minded professionals in office, even when there’s no salary and benefits attached. Jeff Kidwell is that kind of servant with many years of experience and service to the law enforcement community. I have known Jeff for many years, and he is firmly committed to supporting the public safety community. Jeff donates countless hours of service and he is endorsed by the Campbell County FOP. Let’s keep professionalism in District 1 and keep Kidwell. Kevin Sell Alexandria

Reds success more fun as a child Knowing the Cincinnati Reds had a chance to clinch the National League Central Division title with a victory on the night of Sept. 28, my wife and I dressed our 10-month-old daughter in her Reds sleeper that evening. We tuned into the game on television just in time for the bottom of the ninth to see Jay Bruce hit his division-winning home run to center field. (Yes, that late my daughter was still awake.) Though she’ll be too young to remember this season, the Reds making it back to baseball’s postseason for the first time in 15 years reminds me of when they last won the World Series. The year was 1990 and I’ll never be able to enjoy a team’s postseason run as much as I did then. The reason is simple: Back then I had the innocence of youth. I was 11 years old going on 12. I was a sixth-grader with very few responsibilities and worries. And I’m glad I was that young to enjoy the Reds championship that year. If I had been older, it wouldn’t have been as much fun. There’s something special and genuine about youth.

Though I never attended any of the 10 postseason games the Reds played that year, I followed it intently. I probably even kept score of the Paul games as I McKibben watched them on Reporter’s television. Back then Notebook Major League Baseball still played some of its postseason games in the afternoon before everything had to be on prime time television. Game 2 and Game 3 of the National League Championship Series were afternoon games. I’m sure as soon as I got home from school, the television immediately was turned onto those games. Baseball should have more afternoon playoff games. I’m sure it wouldn’t make as much television revenue but the sport would be more accessible to its most important audience – youth. Other memories of that 1990 Reds October include my mom taking my brother and I to White Castle to celebrate the Reds win-

Stealing political signs against the law In the past, this office has received contacts asking that an article be done concerning stealing political signs from homeowners’ lawns. Many people seem to feel that taking or damaging a political sign is not a criminal offense but rather that it just sort of goes with the territory of political campaigns. However, that is not the case. A theft of a political sign is no different than the theft of any other personal property. Under Kentucky law, a person is guilty of theft by unlawful taking if he takes or exercises control over moveable property of another with intent to deprive that person of the property. This would certainly include political signs as well as any other property. Taking a political sign out of someone’s front yard is no less of a theft than taking a chair off of the porch. Theft of property under Kentucky law is a Class A misdemeanor if the item has a value of less than $500 dollars and is pun-

A publication of


ning the World Series. We kept each edition of The Cincinnati Enquirer that chronicled each game. We had T-shirts for each title the Reds won that year (NL Western Division, National League pennant and the World Series). For Halloween that year I dressed as a Reds fan. I wore a red World Series champions T-shirt with a small broom around my neck. The broom of course represented the Reds sweeping the Oakland Athletics in the World Series. My face was painted red and white. This year, I’ll try to watch parts of the games. And I’ll continue to think of my maternal grandparents who followed the Reds with more loyalty than I did as a child. I know they are already celebrating from above. And if it’s a true Reds October, maybe I’ll bust out another Reds fan Halloween costume for myself as I take my daughter trick-ortreating for the first time.

able by up to a fine of $250 and up to ninety days in jail. During this “silly season” of political campaigns prior to the election on Nov. 2, all candidates and their workers and supporters should understand that defacing or taking political signs is criminal conduct and will be prosecuted as such. It is certainly frustrating and aggravating to put so much time and work into putting up political signs only to have them damaged or stolen. All campaigns should take the high road of supporting the candidate of choice versus trashing an opponent, especially relative to trashing or taking an opponent’s signs.

Courage is doing the good we’re afraid to do Courage doesn’t always involve brawn and muscles. It does involve a strength of character and integrity. It causes us to reach for rightness even in the face of fear, disapproval or overwhelming odds. The word courage arose from the Latin word cor, meaning heart. To have courage, “you gotta have heart,” as an old song lyricized. Courage is the virtue crucified in the middle between two thieves – cowardice and rashness. Cowardice is running away from all dangers and hard times; rashness is facing danger in a careless way that masks self-centered motives. In the past, courage was chiefly associated with men. It was seen in the risks they took during battle to defeat an enemy, help a fellow soldier, or defend innocent people. Now, with a better understanding of courage, we don’t hesitate to attribute it in various bold and subtle ways to women as well. To be courageous involves three general characteristics: (a) a willful and intentionally chosen act despite the presence of fear;

(b) it involves substantial danger, difficult, or risk to the person choosing Father Lou it; (c) it is Guntzelman primarily Perspectives motivated to bring about a noble good or morally worthy purpose. How many kinds of courage are there? Three types are acknowledged. Physical courage. It is overcoming the fear of physical harm or possible death for the sake of a noble goal such as defense of country or our family, or to save someone from danger or criminal threats. For example, we hear in the news of a man or woman risking their life to pull someone from a burning car. Recently a captain posthumously received the Medal of Honor for risking his life while placing his wounded men in a helicopter. Moral courage. This is overcoming the fear of social ostracism or rejection in order to maintain ethical integrity.

For example, the history of civil rights recalls the day Rosa Parks, a southern black woman, took a seat in the front of a bus when a prejudiced society said “her place” was in the back. This type of moral courage can occur in many different situations. It happens whenever an individual stands up to someone with power over him or her, and does so for the greater good. The result is the risk of social disapproval from others. Psychological, or vital, courage. Within the past 150 years a third kind of courage has been recognized by psychologists. It means overcoming the fear of losing one’s psyche (the feeling that one is disintegrating within – colloquially, losing it.) It can occur as we struggle against the fear of disintegration or death while trying to achieve greater wholeness and mental health. It is the kind of courage demonstrated by an addict overcoming his or her addiction; or a person abused as a child working to overcome deep psychological fears to become a loving and productive adult. Why focus on courage

today? In “The Psychology of Courage,” edited by Pury & Lopez, it’s stated: “It is increasingly difficult to face an unpredictable future without being able to call on courage if needed.” Over the years I have been honored to meet many people of courage. They weren’t publicly known because for us ordinary people our most noteworthy victories occur within, out of view of camera, newsprint and applause. At times we may be the only one who knows that they exist. To all these wonderful and victorious people I apply the following anonymous quotation: “Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow.’” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

There’s a chicken in every pot pie recipe

I know whenever a request comes in for anything about Shillito’s recipes served in their former restaurants, it spawns a huge flood of “can you find this recipe, or that?” So I wasn’t surprised when Irene Johnson’s original request for Shilllito’s chicken pot pie opened the floodgates.

Shillito’s individual chicken pot pie

I was so happy to get this recipe from Amelia reader Mary Frank. “I’m glad I could help,” she said. Me, too! This recipe comes from one printed in the Enquirer a

while back by Jeff Pipes, former Lazarus Interior Design Studio manager. 1

⁄8 cup frozen peas 3 ⁄4 cup frozen sliced carrots 6 cooked pearl onions 1 ⁄2 cup (3 oz.) diced cooked chicken – 1⁄2-inch to 3 ⁄4-inch chunks 3 ⁄4 cup sauce 1 to 2 oz. pastry, to cover pie Cook frozen peas and carrots and drain. Put chicken into small casserole and add veggies. Pour sauce over and bake at 350 degrees until bubbly. Serve with pastry top over casserole dish. (I’m assuming you bake the pas-

try separate). Makes one pie.

Pot pie sauce:

If you remember the sandwich as being a bit spicy, go ahead and add some chili powder.

Melt margarine, add flour and mix well. Add stock, cook and stir until creamy. Add pepper.

21⁄2 pounds ground beef 1 ⁄2 cup chopped onion 1 ⁄4 cup chopped bell pepper Salt and pepper 1 tablespoon dry mustard 1 tablespoon cider vinegar or more to taste 13⁄4 cup ketchup 2 tablespoons sugar or more to taste

3 tablespoons margarine 11⁄2 tablespoons flour 1 cup chicken stock/broth Dash pepper

Shillito’s Café sandwich (Seven Hills sloppy Joes)

I have researched this recipe for years and found that the original spice mixture used in the sandwich was a commercial one and, alas, can’t be found anymore.

Brown meat and add everything else. Simmer about 30 minutes or more. Serve with a dollop of Cheese Whiz on top.

Fifteen-minute peanut butter fudge

For the lady in Milford who wanted a peanut butter fudge “without marshmallow cream.” She told me her mom had a recipe for just such a fudge, but she can’t find it. This is from “Cook’s Illustrated,” my food “bible.” Now, my own recipe like this is almost identical, except it doesn’t have baking soda and I just melt everything in a pan and pour it into a sprayed 8-by-8 square pan. (It’s an easy and good one – my grandson, Will, made the chocolate version of the fudge and won a blue

ribbon at the fair). I’m thinking, though, that the baking soda is smart addition, as that is what probably makes the texture of this fudge so good. Makes about 21⁄2 pounds. This fudge will change texture and become drier the longer it is stored. Store the fudge, tightly wrapped in plastic, in a cool place for up to two weeks or in the freezer for three months. If frozen, allow ample time to let it reach room temperature before cutting. 18 oz. peanut butter chips 1 ⁄2 teaspoon baking soda 1 ⁄8 teaspoon salt 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Cut 12-inch length extrawide heavy-duty aluminum foil; fold edges back to form 71⁄2-inch width. With folded sides facing down, fit foil securely into bottom and up sides of 8inch-square baking pan, allowing excess to overhang pan sides. Spray foil with nonstick cooking spray. Toss peanut butter chips, baking soda, and salt in medium heatproof bowl until baking soda is evenly dis-

tributed. Stir in sweetened Rita condensed Heikenfeld milk and vanilla. Rita’s kitchen S e t bowl over 4-quart saucepan containing 2 cups simmering water. Stir with rubber spatula until chips are almost fully melted and few small pieces remain, two to four minutes. Remove bowl from heat and continue to stir until chips are fully melted and mixture is smooth, about two minutes. Transfer fudge to prepared pan and spread in even layer with spatula. Refrigerate until set, about two hours. Remove fudge from pan using foil and cut into squares. Double batch: Line 13 by 9-inch pan with two sheets of foil placed perpendicular to each other and double amounts of all ingredients. In Step 2, use large heatproof bowl and Dutch oven containing 4 cups simmering water.

Both riverboats and former Cincinnati resident Stephen Foster will be celebrated. The second concert, “Freedom Isn’t Free, is 8 p.m. Nov. 12-13 at Notre

Dame Academy in Park Hills. Armistice Day, marking the end of World War I, became a day to honor and thank those who served in our armed forces. In a rare patriotic program, the KSO looks at the musical chronology of America’s conflicts from 1776 to 1993. Some of the eclectic musical selections include “Battle of New Orleans,” “Over There” Victory at Sea highlights and “Ballad of the Green Berets., The KSO presents the National Symphony Orchestra at 8 p.m. Feb. 19, 2011, at Florence Baptist Church at Mt.

St. Vincent de Paul’s ninth annual fan drive a success The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, in cooperation with WCPO-TV Channel 9, Coney Island, Huntington Bank, Cincinnati Firefighters Union Local 48 and Papa John’s Pizza, recently concluded its ninth annual fan drive collecting 697 fans and 136 air conditioners – all of which have been


distributed to local neighbors in need. During the “Dog Days” of August, Papa John’s Pizza donated more than 30 air conditioners to bring relief to all of the families and elderly residents who were still on the waiting list, which allowed for a break from the heat.

The goal for this year’s fan drive was to collect 500 fans and 100 air conditioners to help provide proper cooling and ventilation to those in need this summer, many of whom are the elderly, the sick and children with asthma and other chronic problems. This year, as a result of

the prolonged economic slump, many families were seeking help for the first time. “Thanks to the generosity of our corporate partners and local individuals, we have exceeded our goal and helped more than 800 families this summer,” said Liz Carter, executive director of

St. Vincent de Paul. She continued, “A fan or air conditioner is often the difference between living comfortably or an emergency room visit.” Thift stores are located at 712 Sixth Ave., in Dayton and at 906 Monmouth St., in Newport. Both location accept donations until 5

p.m. Monday through Saturday. The Dayton location is closed Thursdays.

COLLEGE CORNER Bowling awarded Genetics Education Research Grant

A local Biology Assistant Professor, Bethany Bowling, PhD, from Northern Kentucky University (NKU), was recently awarded the first genetics education grant from the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) under its new Genetics Education Research Program. The primary goal of ASHG’s Genetics Education Research Program (GERP)is to promote genetic literacy among teachers and students by supporting research related to genetics education in U.S. schools, grades 7-20. Bowling is an Assistant Professor in the Biological Sciences Department at Northern Kentucky University. Her research interests center broadly on biology education and human genetics, and her current research in these topic areas focuses on understanding students’ misconceptions and improving instruction and curricula in genetics.
