Nine vie for four seats on Newport School Board By Amanda Joering

NEWPORT — Incumbents Melissa Sheffel, Willis Gregory, Julie Smith-Morrow and Matthew Scott are going up against challengers Rob Rummel, Shaun Thacker, Theresa Miller, David Amanns and Bob Barnett for three regular fouryear terms and one unexpired term on the Newport Independent Schools board. Challenger Dave Amanns, who is running together with friends Rummel, Miller and Thacker, said the group decided to run after discussions led to the decision that things need to change in the district. Amanns, whose children graduated from Newport schools and whose grandchildren will some day attend the schools, said education of the students needs to be put first in school board decisions. Challenger Barnett, who grew up in Newport and attended Newport schools , said he is running to help bring the district back up to where it was when he was in school. Barnett, a retired Newport firefighter whose grandchildren attend Newport schools, said his goals include working to get students’ test scores up and making changes to improve the education of Newport students. Incumbent Willis Gregory, who was appointed to the board earlier this year, said he is running to serve the rest of the unexpired term because he has seen how hard the board is working to improve the schools and how much they care about the students . Gregory said his goals include working to restart the fine arts and drama programs, redefining how they approach literacy in an effort to improve it at all schools, and trying to get more parents and community members involved in the schools. Challenger Miller said she is running to take the Newport

Sheffel schools back from the current school board and administration, who she said are not being fiscally responsible . Smith-Morrow “If the current board is allowed to continue to make decisions for the district we will see further financial waste and continued lack of focus on the education of the children,” Miller said. Challenger Rummel said he too is running to take back Newport’s schools from a board that puts too much focus on the financial end of things and not on the education of children in the district. Through employee bonuses and other unnecessary expenditures, Rummel said the board is spending money on other things while education and performance in the schools continues to get worse. Scott

Dog lovers now have a new recreational option in Newport with the opening of a new dog park along Providence Way. Residents and city officials came together Sunday, Oct. 7, for the grand opening of the park, the culmination of about a year of work by the dog park committee, a group of residents who spearheaded the effort. Committee member Sarah Dixon Mitchell said efforts to create the dog park began late last year, after residents came together and decided the open space in that area would make a good dog park. “This area has been used as an informal dog park for years, but we thought it would be nice to make it a confined space,” Mitchell said. In the past year, the committee raised more than $15,000 to create the park, complete with fencing that meets the historic guidelines of the area. Mitchell said the park was made possible by the generosity of residents, businesses and officials in the city. City manager Tom Fromme said with the economy the way it is, these are the kind of partnerships between the city and residents that make amenities like the dog park possible. “I think the committee did a

great job,” Fromme said. “They raised a lot of money and worked with the city every step of the way.” Mayor Jerry Peluso said it’s amenities like the dog park that attract people to Newport, and he is happy the city has this new addition. Resident Joyce Chastang said in the past, she could never let her dog, Lily, off her leash while on walks, but the dog park has changed that. “She just loves it,” Chastang said. “She can come to the park

and run around with the other dogs now.” Mitchell said in the future, the committee will continue collecting donates to maintain the park and are planning to continue to make improvements, including adding a water fountain for the dogs.

Trio of candidates vie for Sheriff’s seat By Chris Mayhew

NEWPORT — The midterm retirement of former Campbell County Sheriff John Dunn on Aug. 1 opened the door for voters to pick a new person to lead the office Nov. 6. The winner of three candidates seeking to replace the remainder of Dunn’s four-year term will take office Nov. 7. The term of office is through the end of 2014. The sheriff’s office, located in Newport, has 29 employees and a 2012 budget of $2.187 million.

Dave Otto of Fort Thomas is the Democratic candidate, Jeff Kidwell of Cold Spring is the Republican candidate and John G. Crum Jr., of Highland Heights filed as a Libertarian. Otto, 62, a commissioner on Campbell County Fiscal Court for 26 years until 2010, owns Otto Printing in Dayton – printing concert security passes for shows . “When you look at the sheriff’s office, 80 percent of the job is not law enforcement,” Otto said. “You have the collection of taxes, which is the main function, and it’s not a

small function.” Otto said he is familiar with the sheriff’s office budget at the line item level because he approved it annually as a member of fiscal court. Otto said he is committed to making sure the taxing districts receive their tax money on time. Otto said he will cross-train sheriff office employees so they can perform all office functions. For deputies, cross-training will mean being able to run the metal detector or provide security on a high profile case, or transport prisoners across state lines, he said. Otto said he plans to have the best law enforcement people un-

der him possible. “My strength is in business and in administration,” he said. “I’m not going to sit here and say I have any law enforcement because I don’t.” Otto said he will go after state and federal grants for vehicles, computer systems, license plate recognition technology and training – something the previous sheriff didn’t seek. Otto said his final goal is devising a good public awareness campaign on the heroin epidemic by working with community and school leaders. Otto said public service is “in his blood,” and he sought election as sheriff after hearing from Republicans he knows. “Quite frankly I heard that Jeff Kidwell was going to get the nomination, and I felt that I could do a better job,” Otto said. “You know I’ve got more experience. I’ve got a better business background.

I’ve got a better administrative background.” Kidwell, 48, said his law enforcement experience is relevant, since serving paperwork for the courts is a primary function of the sheriff’s office. Kidwell said he has been an officer for the courts for 17 years as an elected constable serving warrants, summons subpoenas and other court documents for people in the county. He has owned and operated Star Computers in Newport for the last 20 years. Kidwell said he previously served as a manager of information systems for Tim Hogan’s Carpet Outlet and dealt with large budgets, supervising personnel and worked with accounting to manage more than 30 stores. “I chose to pursue this office to improve services to the citizens of Campbell County,” he said. “I believe that my unique blend

Incumbent Scott, who was appointed to the board in May, graduated from Newport High School in 1996 and now has children in the schools, said he wants to stay on the board to ensure not only his kids, but all the kids in the city are getting a good public education. Scott said during his short time on the board, he has worked to put strong leadership in place, develop a plan to improve the district’s math and reading scores and increase the level of college and career readiness. Incumbent Melissa Sheffel, who has been on the board for about two years and has two sons in the district, said she wanted to be a part of the board because she saw things she thought could be done better for the students in the city. Sheffel said she hopes to continue to work towards improving the graduation rate, ACT scores, attendance rate and community involvement and thinks Superintendent Middleton will help the board accomplish that. Incumbent Julie SmithMorrow, who has been on the board a a little more than five years, said she feels that with the hiring of the new superintendent, the district is in a good place to focus more on performance and accountability and provide the best service possible for the students of Newport. Smith-Morrow said her goals include more closely monitoring and improving student performance and get the community and parents more involved and engaged in the schools. Challenger Shaun Thacker, a lifelong Newport resident who is running for the unexpired term, said so much has changed since he attended Newport schools and he hopes to bring the education of students back to the forefront. Thacker said he hopes to be a voice for parents in the district and address issues like bullying in the schools. Candidate Carolyn Duff has withdrawn her name from the school board election due to medical reasons.

California ballot features incumbents By Chris Mayhew

CALIFORNIA — Incumbents plan on returning to their commission seats in California to manage the business of the Campbell

County city of 90 people living along the banks of the Ohio River. Voters will see an uncontested ballot on Election Day Nov. 6 with four incumbents seeking election to four seats.

Emma Jean Neises, 73, said she has been on commission for 49 years since she was 24. “My goals are just to make it better and try to have the people keeping their yards and houses

looking nice,” Neises said. Neises said she enjoys being on the commission despite setbacks the city had in the 1997 Ohio River flood. The community has just built a new city building on

Seven vie for six seats in Wilder By Amanda Joering


With current council members David Martin and Rosemary Wilson not running for re-election, incumbents Robert Blankenship, Monica Gearding, Michael Dinn and Brack Herald Jr. and challengers Bradley Jones, Robert Arnold and Robert Honaker are competing for the six council seats. Arnold, who also has a law office located in Wilder, said between living and working in the city, he is tuned into what is going on and the city’s needs. “I think there are some upgrades we could make to the city,” Arnold said. “We also need more transparency between the city government and the residents.”

Four for four spots in Melbourne By Chris Mayhew

MELBOURNE — Streets are the top topic for candidates on the ballot on Election Day Nov. 6 for Melbourne city commissioner in an uncontested election. There are four candidates filed to fill four seats on the city commission. Melbourne, a city nestled along the Ohio River, has a population of 486, according to the 2010 U.S. Census. Wilbur L. Crossley is seeking his first full twoyear term as a commissioner after being appointed to fill an unexpired term in the final months of 2011. Crossley, 66, is a retired U.S. Army veteran. Crossley said the city has been working on putting all new streets in, and he has no official goals, but he does want to see some cleanup around the city and clear items left in the open on properties. “We’re all pack rats down here,” he said. Crossley said there are small things that come up in the city, and he wants to help deal with them. “We want to get this place down here thriving and more people moving in,” he said. Edward C. Fischer, a member of city commission for 12 years, including a term as mayor from 2006 to 2010, is seeking a fifth term as a commissioner. Fischer, 72, works full-


time as a supervisor of the bus system at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. Fischer said the city has done a good job of replacing every street except one during his time on the commission. “We don’t start a street unless we’ve got the money to pay for it,” he said. Fischer said he wants to see the street program completed. Fischer said he decided to step down from the mayor’s job to let someone else who was younger do the job, but people asked him to stay on as a commissioner. The city has created a park for children behind the city building with swings and a basketball court in recent years, he said. “The city has come a long way in the last few years,” Fischer said. David C. King, a resident of the city for 31 years, is seeking a third term on commission. “We’ve been doing our streets from blacktop to concrete, and we’ve got one left,” he said. King said he also wants to see the city get blight under control. “We’ve got a quiet little city, and I’d like to see it stay that way,” King said Incumbent Paul Landwehr, a member of commission since 2004, declined to comment.

Students picture a no bullying world By Chris Mayhew

ALEXANDRIA — Bullying happens. So, the annual anti-bullying student poster contest at Campbell County Middle School reminds classmates hurting someone else with words or deeds is not cool and to report instances to an adult. School Resource Officer Mark Branham announced the eight student winners of the annual poster contest Tuesday, Oct. 2. Fort Thomas resident Bridget Rison and Alexandria resident Kylie Lynch teamed up to create the winning eighth-grade poster. Rison said the face on the poster is sad, and sending a message to not make someone feel bad. Rison said a relative of hers was bullied, so making the poster was personal. “We know people who have been bullied, so we don’t want other people to have to go through that too,” Lynch said.

People need to stop bullying others, she said. Cold Spring resident Paxton Glenn, a seventh-grader, won the grand prize for her bus poster depicting scenes hidden behind windows covering subject including “cyber-bullying,” “threats" and “mean words.” “I came up with the idea of using the school bus because most kids get bullied on the school bus because there’s usually no adults around to tell them not to bully other students,” Paxton said. “And I used the little windows and put pictures inside of them to show each type of bullying that can happen.” Branham said the contest judge, husband of one of the school’s assistant principals, selected Paxton’s poster for the grand prize in part because it covered every aspect of bullying and more importantly had a section on how to “Stand Up For Others.” Campbell County Schools does a good job of teaching students about how wrong bullying is in elementary school, and how

to report the behavior to an adult, he said. “We just want to keep reiterating it so they know the process

when something arises,” Branham said. Branham said he receives a report of bullying about three

times a week. The middle school has more than 1,100 students. “About 80 percent of bullying pertains to the way someone looks and dresses,” he said. “And that’s just the way it is. Kids are cruel.” Students do report on other students they see being bullied, he said. “Typically, if they’re going to call another student out by name to a teacher or counselor it’s pretty serious,” Branham said. The school also has a “Shout Out” box where students report bullying anonymously, he said. Branham said he wants students to take speaking up against bullying to a new level. “I would love to see the kids when they see somebody getting picked on, not just one, but a bunch of them just somebody take the first step and go out and say, ‘Hey it’s not cool leave him alone,’” he said. “And then everybody that is around him do the same thing and step in and say, ‘Yeah man it’s not cool.’”

Student interaction focus of open house By Chris Mayhew

ALEXANDRIA — When Bishop Brossart High School has an open house the chance to meet current students is just as important as seeing inside a classroom. Select seniors and freshmen at the Alexandria Catholic high school speak with students and their families during the annual open house to share their experiences. This year’s open house for stu-

dents in grades 7-8 and their families will be from 1-3:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 21. The event will feature additional presentation of the new addition the school is planning to break ground on in spring 2013. The addition is expected to cost between $7 million and $8 million, according to a news release from the school. Other open presentations will cover the campus ministry, the educational mission, technology, student organizations, athletics and tuition assistance.

“We generally start with a program in which we’ll introduce important figures in the school,” said Principal Richard Stewart of the open house experience. After an initial presentation by faculty, students take over, Steward said. Typically a senior and a freshman will give a presentation on their experiences. “They’ll say this is what Brossart has meant to ‘me,’” Steward said. Juniors and seniors then walk

the seventh- and eighth-graders through the building, and there will be displays in all the classrooms about what happens in each class, and the science lab will be running some experiments, he said. The cafeteria will be set up with tables and people with information about various student boards and clubs, Stewart said. The most important part of the experience is for prospective students and their families to spend lots of time with the cur-

rent Bishop Brossart students and see them at work, he said. “When families come through and they meet our kids, they say ‘that’s what I want our child to be in four or five years,’” Stewart said. People considering attending the open house are asked to preregister. For information or to register call the school at 859635-2108. Visit for more community news

Free Life Insurance program offered Community Recorder Northern Kentucky Youth Foundation is joined by the Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co. (MassMutual) to announce a program offering free $50,000 term life insurance policies to benefit children of working families throughout Northern Kentucky and surrounding communities. MassMutual pays all insurance premiums on the policies as part of the company’s philanthropic LifeBridge SM program. Eligible parents and legal guardians may apply for this coverage by downloading a form off the Northern Kentucky Youth Foundation’s website. To

see a list of participating school districts to return the form to, visit MassMutual has issued more than 12,500 10-year term life insurance policies since launching the program in 2002. This represents more than $625 million in coverage as of June. MassMutual expects to issue a total of $1 billion in free term life insurance coverage through the national philanthropic free life insurance program, called LifeBridge. The policy proceeds help to pay for the education of eligible children if their insured parent or legal guardian dies during the 10-year policy term.

Parents and legal guardians between the ages of19 and 42 may apply for this insurance coverage. They must have one or more dependent children under the age of 18, be working full- or part-time with a total family income between $10,000 and $40,000, and be permanent, legal residents of the U.S. They also must be in good health, as determined by MassMutual’s underwriting guidelines. If an insured parent or guardian dies during the policy’s term, MassMutual will deposit the $50,000 face amount into a trust administered by The MassMutual Trust Co., FSB, a wholly owned subsidiary of MassMutual, on behalf

of the children. The trust will pay the educational expenses of the children directly to the educational institution they attend. The money can be used to help pay for educational expenses such as books, tuition, fees and campus room and board. The types of schools covered include pre-school, private school, trade school, colleges, universities, art, music and graduate schools. MassMutual agents donate their time and services to help people apply for LifeBridge insurance coverage; agents receive no commission and MassMutual pays all the life insurance premiums. There is no cost to the insured or their children.

Rivals to face off in district soccer final By James Weber

The new district for the Newport Central Catholic girls soccer team is a lot easier to advance from, but not easy to win. In the new state alignment, soccer was reconfigured to match baseball and basketball, so NewCath remains with old buddies Highlands in the newly named 36th District. County foes Campbell County and Bishop Brossart left the former 19th District, which was usually one of the deepest and most competitive in the state. In the new alignment, Highlands and NewCath are alone in the 36th. Neighborhood rivals Bellevue, Dayton and Newport have tried to get girls soccer programs going in recent years, but none of the three entered district play this year.

As a result, Highlands and NewCath will play in the district final Thursday, Oct. 11 at Tower Park in Fort Thomas. The same scenario exists in boys soccer, so there will be a doubleheader that night, with all four teams advancing to the Ninth Region tourney. Turnick’s team carries an 11-5-1 record into the Highlands match. NCC’s last regular season game was a1-0 loss to St. Henry Oct.1in a game called at halftime due to heavy rain. Sam Bunzel leads NewCath with 11 goals, Christina Seibert has 10 and Loren Zimmerman nine. Track speedster Chandler Cain has six goals. Bunzel, Zimmerman, Seibert and Nikki Buller have either five or six assists for the year. Erin Ackerson has five shutouts for the Thoroughbreds, who have allowed18 goals for the year, and more than one only three times.

Depth leads Camels into postseason By James Weber

ALEXANDRIA — Campbell County High School has never played in a regional girls soccer tournament. The Camels are looking forward to that changing under the new Kentucky High School Athletic Association alignment. Campbell now has the same district foes in the newly named 37th District that it does in other sports with the 37th. That meant keeping city rival Bishop Brossart but replacing county foes Highlands and Newport Central Catholic with Scott and Calvary Christian. The Camels knocked off Scott in the district semifinals Oct. 8 by a 4-0 score, taking them to the district final for the first time as a program. Scoring were junior Lauren Macke (two), senior Shelby Davis and senior Taylor Robinson, with sophomore Bryanna Schroers getting the shutout and four saves. The Camels enter the district final Thursday, Oct. 11, against Bishop Brossart with a record of 12-7-2, their second-highest regular-season win total in team history. “I purposely scheduled the hardest schedule we ever had to prepare them better for the playoffs,” head coach Dave Morris said. “I was unsure what the win total would be, but I’m happy overall. It’s a good season for us. We’ve played a lot of tough teams.” Campbell beat Boone County 2-0 Oct. 4 in the

team’s final regular season game. Robinson and senior Erin Bishop recorded the goals, and senior Kylyn Schnelle the shutout. “It was really exciting because it’s our senior year and to score on our senior night is a great accomplishment,” Robinson said. “Everybody has worked hard during the year, not just us. That’s the big thing we’ve looked at this year; it’s not just scoring but passing the ball and working as a team to get to our goal, which is to get to state.” Boone was Campbell’s Senior Night opponent, though the Camel seniors were honored three nights earlier when the game was originally set to kick off. Heavy rain turned the Campbell field into a swamp and forced the Senior Night ceremony into the school library. The field was still slightly muddy for the actual game against the Rebels, when the seniors

picked up a win to remember. “That’s what every senior wants to do, score a goal on senior night,” Bishop said. “When we talk to each other we play the best. Then we can communicate and have passing plays and combinations that lead to goals.” Other seniors are Michaela Hyden, Molly Kitchen, Miranda Kopp, Angela Lauer and Chelsea Weckbach. Robinson leads the Camels with16 goals. Macke has 15 and junior Natalie Visse 10. Bishop notched her fifth. Schnelle was making her first start of the season in net. Schroers has12 shutouts this season. “The strength all year has been depth,” Morris said. “We may not have the best 11 sometimes, but we have the best 20, and that helps a lot. This is the first year where all the field players play every game.

There’s not near the dropoff there has been in the past. That has helped us against the better teams. Usually, we come back and play better later in the game.” Campbell and Brossart met Sept. 17, with Brossart winning in penalty kicks. The city rivals have the two best records in the new10th Region. Their 37th final game is Thursday, Oct. 11, at Scott High School.

Library board needs to focus on technological future On November 6, the voters of Campbell County will have the opportunity to vote for or against a controversial library tax issue. The Library Board wants to build a fourth library building in the south end of the county and says it needs to Kenneth increase the Moellman libraries’ real COMMUNITY estate properRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST ty tax by 27 percent. The ballot issue will read: “Are you for or against the Campbell County Public Library establishing an ad valorem tax rate of 0.94 cents per $100 of assessed value for real property in Campbell County, Kentucky for the purpose of constructing and operating a new library facility in southern Campbell County?” Now in itself, 0.94 cents per hundred dollars valuation on your property may not appear to be significant, but it is. In fact, the 0.94 cents represents a 27 percent increase over what Campbell County property owners are currently paying. Based on current information provided by the PVA Real Estate System, this increase would amount to $1,049,156.00 in additional real estate property tax dollars being taken from the property owners of Campbell County. In addition to the current library real estate property tax rate, this tax hike will increase every year the Library Board decides

to raise the real estate property tax. Many people are unaware that the library receives tax revenue from other sources in addition to real estate property taxes. According to the 2012 Northern Kentucky TRI-ED Tax Tool, the library receives tax dollars from Real Estate Taxes (0.74 cents per hundred), Tangible Taxes (1.089 dollars per hundred), Inventory Intransit Taxes (1.089 dollars per hundred) and Motor Vehicle Taxes (0.26 cents per hundred). The citizens of Campbell County pay tax dollars to the library on their real estate, cars, trucks, motorcycles, motor homes, and boats. The Library Board is comprised of non-elected individuals who answer to no one. Taxpaying citizens are not permitted to ask questions at library board meetings and are only permitted to make statements. So Open Records Requests have become the tool used by citizens to get their questions answered. At a recent library board meeting, a number of taxpayers were named and singled out as causing the library to spend thousands of dollars to comply with the open records requests. But since taxpayers cannot ask questions at library board meetings, the open records request has been the only way taxpayers can get their questions answered. Over the past four years,

library employees have received pay increases amounting to a compounded 14.7 percent. Who in the last four years, other than tax-supported employees, have received pay increases anywhere near this amount if at all? So while those in the private sector have been experiencing layoffs, pay cuts, job losses, home foreclosures and higher taxes, library employees have been enjoying pay increases. According to the 2010 and 2011 Kentucky Annual Report of Public Libraries, patron visits to the Campbell County Public Library System were down 5 percent overall and down 6.59 percent at the Cold Spring location. One reason for the decline in patron visits is probably due to more people using the Internet, which is surely going to increase. In today’s world numerous corporations benefit by utilizing the Internet. They no longer buy land and build buildings to provide office space for their employees, and the library could do the same. Many corporations no longer spend money for heating, cooling, furniture, lighting, etc., and the library could do the same. Many corporate employees experience numerous benefits utilizing the Internet as well. They no longer have to commute to and from a building, and library patrons could do

the same. Many things that were once exclusive to the public libraries are now available via the Internet and should be utilized and expanded. The library director has been quoted as stating: “... Those living in the south end of the county deserve a library because they have been paying taxes that support the library branches in the north end of the county...” If the citizens of Campbell County deserve anything from the library it would be a library board that is frugal and focused on the electronic future. We deserve a library board that doesn’t spend multiple millions of taxpayer’s hard earned dollars on a building that is obviously on the same path as the wagon wheel. With technology and the Internet improving and expanding daily why place another financial burden on the taxpayers by continually raising taxes for facilities that aren’t needed? The library board could and should embrace the electronic technology that is currently available. And instead of spending millions of dollars on land and buildings, the Library Board should expand the online capabilities of the Campbell County Public Library System.

cal board of education. There is no state law that requires a district to adopt a policy or program. Student drug testing is not the answer. Addressing this issue will take your community to get involved.

Last week, the National Football League reached a tentative deal with referees to end the labor dispute and get them back on the field. The labor dispute reached fever pitch on Tuesday when the Green Bay Packers had a game stolen from them on a missed call and then a terrible call by replacement referees. The errors grabbed national headlines, and frustrated fans and others began to take a real interest in the underlying dispute. At the heart of the disagreement is a desire by the league to move away from the curJon Steiner rent defined COMMUNITY benefit proRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST gram and replace it with a 401 (k) style defined contribution plan. The referees wanted to keep the current plan. Does this sound familiar? While the National Football League was able to work out an agreement with its referees to move to a defined contribution system in 2016, here in Kentucky a special task force on pension reform is wrapping up its work in Frankfort to make recommendations for the future of Kentucky’s public pension systems. The task force has heard testimony from a number of groups, including representatives of local governments, groups representing taxpayers’ interests, representatives of business, as well as employee unions and retirees. For the first time in a long time, all the groups seemed to agree that there is a true crisis in Kentucky when it comes to funding of public pensions. However, this crisis has real consequences for Kentucky families and hasn’t grabbed the public’s attention in the way the recent game has. In Kentucky, we have a lot more at stake than the outcome of a football game. Instead of missed calls and frustrated fans, it will mean major cuts to city services, directly affecting the quality of life of citizens. In the end, we need a recommendation that can be embraced by labor and management, as well as the House and Senate that provides a real solution for Kentucky’s cities. Cities are urging the task force to develop a single comprehensive recommendation for the legislature to consider in the 2013 session that balances the need to have an affordable and predictable system with the needs of public employees. The pension reform ball is in the hands of lawmakers, but we can’t wait until 2016 to make a play. Lawmakers should note the important lesson learned by the National Football League: even though the negotiation process was painful, the league found a financially sound retirement system for the future to be worth it.

Library offerings worth the tax I favor the proposed tax rate increase to support the Campbell County Public Library, and I’ll tell you Michele why. Turner Public libraries proCOMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST vide engaging COLUMNIST programs and amazing collections that help children from all backgrounds become excited and enthusiastic readers. Staff in public libraries assist students in finding and enjoying learning resources geared to their interests and needs, which are also available at times when school resources

are not, such as after-school hours, weekends, and during the summer. Students participate in reading activities year-round, thanks to the public library’s innovative after-school and summer reading programs. Programs like these help combat the achievement gap that has been shown to significantly widen over the summer. The library provides a safe place for teens that encourages and values open communication and the sharing of ideas. Libraries don’t just offer the hardware, but also offer the expertise of librarians in help-

ing teach people how to use the Internet and find the information they need quickly. While Google can give you 50,000 responses to your inquiry, your librarian can help you find the one answer you need. Libraries and librarians provide free and equal access to information for people of all ages and backgrounds. Libraries are for everyone, everywhere. Because they offer access to all, they bring opportunity to all. There are those in our community that believe funding public libraries is a waste of money. They are wrong. The

value received from public libraries far exceeds the amount of taxes we pay for them. You can quickly get an idea of your family’s library value by visiting this website: For the $151 my (three-person) family will pay in taxes, we use $3200 annually in books and other library services. I doubt I can get that kind of return anywhere. Please vote for the library on Nov. 6! Michele Turner is a resident of Fort Thomas and a member of Vote FOR Libraries.

Student drug testing is not the answer Simply put: Drugs are bad. Our kids shouldn’t be using them. Kentucky educators and school boards should do everything in their power to educate, deter drug use, and to make sure safety and good health are a foundation of what’s being taught and represented. It’s not clear if some school districts have a drug epidemic. But we bet community members will agree their school district has a perception issue. It is a distinct feeling that for some school districts, the whole random-testing nudge is rooted in perception instead of prevention. School districts in Kentucky

should instead invest the time, energy and dollars they are considering putting into random testing into a larger, cutting-edge Ryan program on Courtade drug education COMMUNITY and prevenRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST tion.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Thank you Trash4Cash

“Wow, this really makes me think twice about what I do with my garbage when I’m driving down the road!” This was the astute observation from one of 15 teenagers picking up litter along Clay Ridge Road in Grant’s Lick and was, in my mind, the crowning moment of the event. Thank you Trash4Cash What had started out as a fund-raiser for the Campbell County High School Band of Pride and an opportunity for band parents to volunteer their teenagers to raise funds for band expenses had been transformed into an important life lesson and a chance to make the world around them a little cleaner. Most of the 15 teenagers and five adult chaperones, who gathered at the crack of dawn that Saturday morning when they should have been enjoying a welldeserved holiday weekend, weren’t entirely happy to be there or were not yet fully awake – or, perhaps, both. Having realized they had just surrendered their last free Saturday before a grueling but rewarding competition season that would consume seven of the next eight Saturdays, I wasn’t the most popular person in the room at that particular moment. I was, however, one of those band parents trying to cover some of the expense of being part of a topnotch band program. An early Saturday morning wake-up call and some sweat equity was the price to be paid for it. I had learned of the

Campbell County Solid Waste Department’s Trash4Cash program several months earlier and thought it sounded like a great way to earn funds. I had some reservations as I considered picking up someone else’s smelly trash on a hot summer day but $100 per mile of roadway sounded like a promising alternative to another wrapping paper or candy bar sale. In addition to the muchneeded financial reward that would come from their labor, there was the benefit of the labor itself – teenagers working to pay their way while also improving their community and learning a few lessons along the way. They learned that despite their own moral objection to littering, others around them apparently did not always share that value. They also learned that while most homeowners keep their road frontage clean and tidy, stretches of uninhabited roadway seemed to be a target for trash flung from car windows. Most importantly, they learned that they can make a difference and that doing it willingly and gladly made the task much more pleasant. Doreen Clark Campbell County High School Band of Pride

A vote for the library

I decided to see if it financially made sense to me to vote for the proposed library tax. I visit the Cold Spring Public Library approxi-

mately once a week. I take my kids there to check out books and also to attend special programs. I live approximately eight miles away from that branch. If I drive round-trip to the library once per week that’s 16 miles x 52 weeks = 832 miles per year. My car gets about 30 miles/gallon of gas so that’s 832/30 = 28 gallons of gas. 28 gallons x $4.00 per gallon = $112.00 in gas to drive to the Cold Spring Library from my house per year. I will actually save money if the library is built in Southern Campbell County since I won’t have to drive as far or use as much gas. It’s a “Yes” for me. Andrea Ankrum Alexandria

Trash4Cash program

Trash4Cash program Recently the Bishop Brossart Girls Soccer team participated in the Trash4Cash program through the Campbell County Department of Solid Waste. We cleaned 10 miles of road in Campbell County. The program was both beneficial and eye opening to our team. The benefits of the program included the opportunity to get together for a fun and effective fundraiser. The litter that we found was astonishing. Along the roadways we picked up countless 2-liter bottles, beer cans and sundry paper products. It is our hope that our work has helped to keep Campbell County beautiful, but our fear that more litter will simply pile

Inconvenient office location

This letter is regarding the Sept. 28 article about the Circuit Court Clerk’s race. I would like to issue a statement regarding my opponent’s comments about the driver’s license office location. I take exception with her comments. First, driver’s licenses and vehicle registrations do renew at the same time. The driver’s license only renews once every four years, but I personally got my renewal notice for my vehicle registration and my driver’s license on the same day, both due in October. As I walk door to door, countless citizens have expressed their dislike with the location of the office. It’s especially problematic for senior citizens and disabled people who need to change or renew their driver’s license or state identi-

fication card. Soon after I registered to run for this position, I was contacted by a worker at the Property Valuation Administration office. She told me that they have a huge problem with it. Citizens who are retired or disabled can get the “Homestead Exemption” on their property taxes, giving them a discount. When they move, they have to stop at the administration office to change their exemption from their prior home to the new. This discount is given only on their primary residence, so they are required to show a valid driver’s license or state identification card with the new address on it. They have to be sent from 1098 Monmouth St. all the way down to Fourth and York streets to change their driver’s license first, and then come back. This is a huge inconvenience for retired and disabled people and the property valuation employees take a lot of complaints about it. Regarding the distance, there is an elevator at the new building, and parking is right next to the building and is free. The handicapped spaces are right to the doors. The Fourth and York street parking lots are all fee based and require the citizens to cross the street at least once. This may not be a big deal for the clerk, but it is a big deal for the citizens of Campbell County. I realize that the driver’s license employees can assist with other duties when they’re not busy, but they can still do this if the office is moved. It’s much better to ask the employees to travel between offices than it is to ask every citizen in Campbell County to do so.

er’s license and pay the taxes on her car. Wow, what a trip. She could never have done this on her own. They moved the driver’s license office into the new building on York Street, there were no signs to tell people where the office was located, but we found it. Then we had to get into the car again and find the Fiscal Court Building in Newport to pay her taxes on her car. Mom was exhausted from the stress and the trip. Why isn’t the driver’s license office located where we pay our taxes on our cars? This would save a lot of stress for citizens trying to locate the driver’s license office. Carol J. Rich Bellevue

Hats off to Knights of Columbus

This year my friend Karen Rabe and I volunteered for Opportunity Day sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, DeJaco Council, Alexandria, on Sept. 16. It was awesome. This was the 31st year for Opportunity Day. It is a day for parents and caregivers of special needs individuals to have fun and enjoy a break from the caregiver role. Guests can enjoy games, rides and lunch all under the caring eyes of volunteers assigned to them. Once Karen and I were matched up with our guests, we were off! We enjoyed a pontoon ride on the lake, a flatbed truck ride around the beautiful grounds, stopped to have our guests try their luck at all of the games, checked out the petting zoo and had lunch. Weatherwise the day was perfect and the Knights of Columbus grounds are just beautiful. At one point when we looked out over the activity going on, between the guests, their families, volunteers and Knights of Columbus members and their families there had to be between 400-500 people making the “Day” happen. Smiles and laughter flooded the landscape. Thank you to each of the Knights of Columbus members who worked so hard to make this day so special. Thank you for opening your lovely grounds for Opportunity Day, but most importantly, thank you for opening your hearts to make a difference.

Ginger tea a good ‘get-well’ drink arthritis, as well. It also reduces clotting in blood. Red pepper clears the head and helps chest congestion. Lemon provides vitamin C. The honey? Well, that will give you a quick energy boost. Now if you’re giving this to the little ones, you might leave out the pepper. Put a generous tablespoon of unpeeled, smashed or grated, fresh ginger in teapot and pour a couple cups of boiling water over. Let steep 5 minutes. Strain and add honey and lemon juice to taste and a pinch of cayenne.

Giovanna’s easy pumpkin soup

You may know her as Joanne Trimpe, author of Holy Chow cookbook. I know her as Giovanna and when she made this soup on Fox 19, I just had to get the recipe to share with you. This is a nice, warming soup for fall. If you have fresh jalapenos, sub one of those in for the canned. Check out Givoanna’s site:

Tip from Rita’s kitchen:

Ginger root freezes well.

Dairy free, sugar free country style coleslaw I’ll usually add a bit more Splenda and vinegar. For Mitch, who was recently diagnosed with diabetes. “I love coleslaw and will need to make it at home.” This is good for those with dairy challenges, too.

¼ cup of canola oil 1 large onion (chopped) 2 teaspoons fresh ginger 3 garlic cloves (minced) 1 small can finely chopped jalapenos Zest of one or two limes 2 cans, 15 oz. ea, pumpkin puree 13.5 oz. can light coconut milk (shaken) 4 cups chicken broth

Kosher salt Pepper

In a soup pan, warm oil over medium-low heat. Saute onion and ginger until soft, about 5 to 8 minutes. Add garlic and jalapeno. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring often. Stir in lime zest, pumpkin, coconut milk and broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring often. Season to taste with kosher salt and pepper. Remove from heat, let cook slightly, puree in a food processor or with a potato masher.

Tips from readers’ kitchens: roasted tomatoes


Rita’s pumpkin soup is a good treat for the fall. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD


I was a presenter at the Mother Earth News Fair in Seven Springs, Penn. A highlight for me was meeting one of my mentors, Rosemary Gladstar. Rosemary is an herbalist Rita who has Heikenfeld made a RITA’S KITCHEN career of healing people naturally. And I was not surprised to find her accessible and willing to talk to everyone about their concerns. My topic was my family’s favorite anti-aging herbs and foods with Biblical/ancient roots. I knew it was a good one and was happy to see standing room only with 200-plus people attending my session. It makes sense. When you think of your favorite recipes, particularly the ones that have a healthy twist to them, don’t they always have a history? One recipe I use when anyone gets the sniffles is ginger tea. It’s kept many a cold and flu at bay.




Not all travel insurance is alike Cruising is a $30 billion business attracting both people young and old alike. In fact, it’s the fastest growing segment of the travel industry. When you book a cruise it’s important to buy travel insurance, but be careful not all travel

insurance is alike. Gene Trifilio and his wife Jeanie booked a Mediterranean cruise through a travel agent in Florida. At the time they also decided to buy trip insurance through the cruise line. Trifilio says, “The reason we got the insurance was because of our ages. I was 80 at the time and she was 77, and we just thought at our age something may happen and we’d get our money back.” Well, something did happen – Jeanie had to have a hip replacement and that prompted them to cancel the cruise. “We couldn’t go on a trip because she could hardly walk.

They tried to get their cruise money back since they had Howard bought trip Ain cancellaHEY HOWARD! tion insurance but were told they couldn’t get it all. “So, consequently, we’re out about a thousand dollars. They gave me my money back but they didn’t give hers back,” Trifilio says. The cruise line wouldn’t refund the money because it considered the hip problem to have been a pre-existing condition. Trifilio sent a letter from her doctor trying to show otherwise, but that didn’t help. “I have sent them letters. I sent them all the information from the doctor and still they won’t discuss it,” Trifilio says. The problem is the type of insurance Trifilio

bought. The cruise line only offered them a partial credit toward a future cruise. This is because pre-existing medical conditions were not a valid reason for the cancellation. However, if you buy trip insurance from an outside company like Travelex, Travel Guard or CSA, you can get much more comprehensive coverage. In addition, if you buy the insurance at the same time you book your cruise you don’t have to worry about having to cancel due to a pre-existing condition. Some of these policies even allow you to cancel for any reason. Whenever you leave the country you really need a lot of insurance coverage should something go wrong. For instance, if you become seriously ill and need to be taken from the ship to a hospital the insurance will pay for emergency medical evacuation. These policies also provide tens of thousands of dollars in medical insurance. Bottom line, many of these policies are more expensive than cruise line insurance, but they also provide much needed protection. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

To plant or not to plant ... that is the question Question: Is it better to plant trees and shrubs in the fall or in the spring? Answer: If the soil is moist, the advantage of planting in early fall is that the tree has more time to establish new roots before winter. Tree roots continue to grow as long as soil temperMike atures are Klahr above 40 HORTICULTURE degrees F, CONCERNS which is often into December. The advantage of late fall planting is that by then, the tree has “shut down,” is more dormant and is less apt to “de-harden” or suffer transplant shock. During the fall, trees and shrubs undergo natural, internal changes (“hardening off”) as they “acclimate” to increase their tolerance to upcoming adverse winter conditions. As the leaves start to change color or turn brown, the sugars from leaves are sent down into the roots, where they act like antifreeze to help prevent root freezing. October is a good month to plant spruces, pines, arborvitae, juniper, Kentucky coffeetree, Amur cork tree, crabapples, elms, ginkgo, honeylocust, katsuratree, sugar maple, Japanese Pagodatree and serviceberry. A newly planted 2-inch trunk caliper tree needs 15

wait until early spring to plant beech, Japanese snowbell, Carolina silverbell, sassafras, yellowwood, blackgum, hophornbeam, persimmon, redbud, and Japanese Zelkova. Broadleaf evergreens such as hollies, boxwoods, rhododendrons and southern Magnolias should also be planted in the spring, so they won’t lose moisture overwinter and desiccate (dry out and turn brown) by spring. Other trees are safe to plant in the fall, but will survive better if you can wait until leaf drop or until they get their fall color before transplanting them. These include purple-leaf plum, red maple, sweetgum, weeping willow, birches, oaks, flowering pear, sycamore, flowering dogwood, and tulip tree (“tulip poplar” or “yellow poplar”).

gallons of water per week, and a 3-inch diameter tree needs 20 gallons of water per week, applied all at one time. Avoid frequent watering to prevent root rot. The possible disadvantage of planting trees and shrubs in the fall is that the plants are then at the mercy of the winter, and freeze damage often occurs before spring. Fluctuating freezing and thawing throughout the winter further “de-hardens” the plants, and fragile roots get damaged and broken by “frost heaving.” Plants near roadways and sidewalks also get damaged by de-icing salts during the winter. Slowrooting trees, such as silver linden, peach, and flowering cherries, are more apt to survive if planted in March or early April. Some varieties of Japanese Maples survive better if planted in the spring. Since we don’t know the severity of the upcoming winter, it may be better to

Celebrating a Happy Howl-o-ween “Tell me again why I’m not allowed to bite,” Nosey asked testily as I lifted her hind legs and pulled a bright yellow tutu around her belly. “I don’t wanna be a bumblebee!” “Because that’s part of the sacred pact that humans and dogs made at the beginning of time,” I replied, strapping on the

So it stands to reason that we want to share it with our pets. In my neighborhood, we like to dress our dogs and take them trick-or-treating.

cats are too smart to hold still for such foolishness and refuse to participate. Here are Marsie Hall my suggesNewbold tions for a MARSIE’S safe and MENAGERIE happy “Howl-o-ween.” If you want to dress your pet up in a costume, only do it if you are certain that your pet will enjoy it and introduce it slowly using praise and food treats as rewards. When shopping, choose something that will go on and come off easily. Steer clear of costumes that are constricting or have small decorations that could be chewed off. It is very important that you never leave your pet unattended while they are wearing a costume. There is a danger that they could get tangled up in it and choke. While we’re on the subject of safety, on Halloween as well as always, make certain that your pets are wearing their collar with up to date ID tags and if outside, on a

Pumpkin Puppy Biscuits. THANKS TO MARSIE NEWBOLD leash at all times. The excitement of trick-ortreaters coming to the door and loud, scary noises can make even the most docile pet try to run away. If your pet is easily frightened, think ahead and consider keeping them in their crate or confined in a quiet room. This is especially important if you are having a party. With all the commotion, pets can slip out of an open door or accidentally unlocked gate and go missing. Don’t feed your pets candy meant for humans. Keep the treats where they can’t reach them. Many ingredients such as chocolate and artificial sweeteners can be potentially toxic. But, that doesn’t mean that your best friend can’t share in the fun of Halloween treats. Consider keeping a box of store-bought dog biscuits at the door for when pooches come to call; or better yet, bake your own. I can assure you that you will be the hit of the neighborhood! My best received recipe is for dog biscuits made with canned pumpkin. Give it a try!

Why volunteer ... WIFM Radio?

Retired and decidedly finished working for money and wondering what to do with the remainder of your life? Over 55, recently released from your employer and wondering what to do with the rest of your life? Want to find new meaning and purpose? These next three installments of my column will discuss these issues facing us “boomers.” This first article is about volunteering your time and talents. Why should we volunteer? We all listen to that same radio station: What’s In It For Me? (WIFM). So it really makes me wonder why I should give my time and energies away for free. Here’s what in it for me: I live longer! The Corporation for National Community Service reports that seniors who provide social support for

others through volunteering had lower mortality rates than those who Ken Rechtin did not. COMMUNITY I get RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST smarter! According to a recent study, seniors who volunteer in social programs not only maintain good brain function, but their brain function and cognitive ability may actually increase. In short, volunteering can actually make me smarter. I am happier! Giving to others can help combat depression, because giving makes us feel vibrant, important and satisfied. Even if you are not depressed, volunteering is a rewarding experience that reduces stress and increases happiness. The Corporation for National Community Service notes

that many health benefits associated with volunteering are a result of the sense of accomplishment a volunteer feels when helping others. I stay involved in my community and meet new people! Many of us spend most of our time at home, where we are comfortable. In fact, a recent article in the Los Angeles Times states that seniors currently spend between half and three-quarters of their time watching television. This social isolation helps explain why so many of us suffer from depression, an estimated 6 to 6.5 million aged 65 years and older. Senior volunteers spend less time at home and more time in their communities, which helps us increase our social and support networks. I am stronger! A University of California, Los Angeles study suggests that productive activities may actually slow down

the aging process for seniors as well. Previous scientific studies have come to the same conclusions. However, this study specifically suggests that volunteering seems to generate the best results. Interestingly enough, volunteering is the only productive activity proven to help prevent frailty among seniors. So, that’s what’s in it for us! Here are a few suggestions on whom to call to get started volunteering: » Michael Dutle, RSVP and Coming of Age: 513241-7745. » Sarah Siegrist, Senior Services of Northern Kentucky: 859-292-7979. » Senior Services’ 10 senior activity centers: There is so much to this “getting old” thing that we need to talk about.

Construction trade school grows, wins accolades Community Recorder The Home Builders Association of Northern Kentucky has operated the Enzweiler Apprentice Training Program since 1955. The 2012-2013 school year recently began with impressive enrollment growth. This year 100 students enrolled in the first year of programming at the school; the largest firstyear enrollment in decades. The entire program boasts more than 150 students and is planning for an enrollment of more than 200 in 2013. In addition, the school has received the American Society of Association Executive Workforce Development Award from the National Association of Home Builders. This award recognizes local associations for their achievements in developing tomorrow’s construction workforce. The program is the oldest private trade school in the nation; operated at the association’s building center located in the Circle-

port Business Center off of Mineola Pike. Students in the program study two-year classes in carpentry, maintenance and remodeling, plumbing, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning. The program operates a four-year class for students learning electric. After graduation, students are certified as trade school graduates and are two years closer to their journeyman’s certificate. The certification acceleration is not available from other schools in the area. As a side benefit of the program, students earn 24 hours of college credit at Gateway Technical and Community College. Recently, the association has added an incumbent welding program to allow students to expand their skills to current and future employers. For more information about the Enzweiler Apprenticeship Training program, call Thomas Napier at 859-331-9500 or email him at

It was a wonderful feeling to be able to deliver the donation to the NKCAC along with my daughter (Michelle Gish Amann),” said Donna Rawe Gish. “The NKCAC is an exceptional organization that focuses on protecting the children while supporting the entire family unit. It was a natural fit for our foundation donation.” The Rawe Foundation gift will benefit the NKCAC and greater Northern Kentucky community and support the provision of trauma informed mental health services for children seen at the NKCAC. Centerbased services were provided to more than 640 children last year. “It’s an honor for the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center to be recognized by the Rawe family in this way.
