County keeps growing Wilder company

Supporters speak out for library

A vocal collection of people in favor of a new library for southern Campbell County joined the voices of people opposed to the idea at a public meeting on the issue in Alexandria Tuesday, Oct. 4, during the fourth of five public meetings. “There is no time like now, you have to invest in the future,” said Alexandria resident Leslie Mertens. “The time to build is now.” NEWS, A6

Stand Down

Hit the ground running

Veterans gather during the 2011 Stand Down event at the Bellevue Vets Friday, Oct. 7. Stand Down events, held throughout the nation, are meant to provide food, services and assistance to homeless veterans. Through donations and volunteers from local organizations, businesses and schools, the event provides homeless veterans with a free lunch, a bag of clothes including winterwear, a hygiene kit and other items. The event also includes booths of information to assist homeless veterans and medical, dental and eye care clinics, on hand to treat the veterans.

The cross country teams at Highlands High School and Highlands Middle School are spreading their love for the sport, one child at a time. For decades the teams and their coaches have held the Children’s Running Program, meant to promote running as a means of exercise and introduce elementary school students to the sport of cross country running.

Work is continuing on a $4million project to widen John’s Hill Road that extends from Knollwood Drive to the Interstate-275 overpass. While most of the dirt work has been completed, the next phase of the project beginning this week, includes closing Knollwood Drive at its intersection with John’s Hill Road and Martha Layne Collins Boulevard, said Nancy Wood, public information officer for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. The closure is needed to construct a roundabout at the intersection. Woods said until December when the roundabout is complete, traffic from Knollwood will be detoured to the newly constructed Hilltop Drive, which meets John’s Hill Road at its intersection with University Drive at Northern Kentucky University. The project as a whole is expected to be complete in spring 2012. “This project will add turn

lanes at various intersections and bike lanes to John’s Hill Road,” Wood said. “This will improve traffic flow around the university and also increase pedestrian and bike access.” The project also includes an extension of University Drive past the Bank of Kentucky Center that will include a roundabout and is meant to help with traffic for events at the center. Larry Blake, assistant vice president of facilities management at NKU, said he doesn’t foresee the current or upcoming work on the John’s Hill project greatly affecting students and faculty at the university. “Even with this project and the construction on the highway, we haven’t had too many issues,” Blake said. “Traffic is actually better than in the past, partly because there are a lot of people taking the bus to get here instead of driving.” Blake said so far, project managers have handled it well, also having people there to direct traffic and keep it moving when necessary.

courage... the wizard of oz

Mary Paula Schuh, NKU’s director of campus and space planning, said she thinks the most difficult part of the project for those coming to NKU will be when traffic is switched to the newly constructed pavement and roundabout. Blake said the only negative part to the project, as far as the university is concerned, is the loss of a little bit or parking, but he feels the project will for the most part positively impact NKU, making access easier. Schuh said this project has been in the university’s master plan for 25 years. “I’m excited that we will soon have sidewalks and bike lanes and attractive, safe roads,” Schuh said. Through this project and the highway construction projects, Schuh said university administrators will continue to notify students, faculty and staff when there are going to be potential traffic issues or road closures through email and the university’s website,

ALEXANDRIA - The first participant in Campbell County’s new jobs development program, RWI Transportation in Wilder, plans to add 150 jobs during the next five years. Campbell County Fiscal Court unanimously approved a resolution authorizing Judge-executive Steve Pendery to execute an agreement with RWI to enter the program. Campbell County Economic Progress Authority President Adam Caswell recommended Pendery enter into the agree- Campbell ment. Prior to the County m e e t i n g , Fiscal Court Caswell said RWI started unanimously out as a spin- approved a off of the Castellini Co. resolution to service authorizing t r u c k i n g needs. JudgeN o w Castellini pro- executive vides about Steve 25 percent of the business Pendery to for RWI, and execute an much of the remaining 75 agreement percent is with RWI to from outside of the region, enter the Caswell said. Other areas program. were courting RWI to relocate, and the jobs program was created as a way to encourage either existing businesses to stay or new businesses to relocate to Campbell County, he said. Caswell said the county and CCEPA doesn’t hand out entry into the jobs development program, which includes tax incentives, lightly. RWI plans to create 150 new jobs in addition to what they already have during the next five years, Caswell said. Pendery said the jobs development program induces companies to come to Campbell County. “We’re trying to attract business,” he said. Kentucky is under heavy pressure right now in a competition with Ohio and Indiana, two states that have been provided additional tools to attract companies, Pendery said. So, the county is making sure businesses know they are valued to keep companies from moving their offices, he said. For more about your community, visit

New attraction brings exercise to the Levee By Amanda Joering Alley

Newport on the Levee’s newest addition, Locomotion on the Levee, is bringing dance, exercise and a new option for fun to the area. Located next to Art on the Levee, Locomotion on the Levee opened in September and is offering a variety of classes including Zumba, tango, salsa, belly dancing, yoga, swing and Pilates. “The idea is bring something new to the levee, something different,” said Fransico Marziano, who manages Locomotion on the Levee and Art on the Levee. “Our hope is that people will come here not only to learn to dance or to exercise, but for entertainment as well.” Marziano said the idea for Locomotion has been in the works for several months and has already been able to bring several instructors from the area that specialize in various fields. Local instructor Mandy Franceschina, who teaches Zumba, a Broadway Blast exercise class and ballroom and Latin dance, said as a freelance instructor, she is

always looking for new places to teach. “I just thought this space was so cool and that having this sort of offering on the levee would be great,” said Franceschina, who has been teaching at Locomotion since it opened. “I’m really interested to see how it progresses.” Marziano said while he is working to bring even more kinds of dance and exercise to Locomotion, he also plans to use the space for other artistic purposes as well, including drawing classes, which he hopes to begin soon. “We can hold pretty much any kind of class or event here,” Marziano said. From 6 p.m.-10 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 16, Locomotion is hosting a tango party for those interested in seeing and trying the dance. The party is $15 per person and includes wine and snacks. For more information about Locomotion and what is offered, call 261-5770 or visit the studio’s page on Facebook, which can be found be searching for “Locomotion on the Levee.” For more about your community, visit

“We want to give them a real ‘Welcome Home,’” said Kathleen Romero. Welcome Home is the theme of this year’s Veteran’s Day Program organized by the James A. Ramage Civil War Museum and the cities of Fort Wright and Fort Mitchell. It is hosted by the Highland Cemetery board and staff. The program will have a special focus on Vietnam veterans and takes place 2 p.m.-3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 13, at Highland Cemetery in Fort Mitchell. The ceremony includes a gun salute from the Sons of the American Revolution, various readings, and the playing of the

Taps. There will also be a display featuring the names of all those from Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties who were killed during the war. This is the fifth year for the program. “I think this is going to be a special event because after the (Vietnam) war when the vets came home they were not treated as well as other vets from other wars,” Romero, board member and events organizer for the museum, said. “It was terrible how they were treated. I hope everyone will come away being inspired to thank a Vietnam veteran for their service when they see them.” Romero is in the process of collecting names of living Vietnam veterans to include

She is also looking for any nurses who served in the Vietnam War or during the war. President of the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 88 Drew Vargo, who has attended the program in years past, is looking forward to this celebration. “It’s nice to have the recognition,” he said. “After the war there was no parade welcoming the Vietnam veterans home. This event is going to be very nice and appropriate. The purpose is to remember all the vets but also to recognize what the Vietnam veterans did when they served. The fact is, regardless of political views about the Vietnam War, these vets were called up and served. That should be remembered.” Vargo said this is also an opportunity to recognize all veterans and the things they have done for the American people. “Without our military we wouldn’t be here as a country,” Vargo said. “People who serve in the military and veterans deserve to be recognized. Americans in general should appreciate veterans’ services more.” Tom Honebrink the sexton of Highland Cemetery expects another “tremendous” turn out for the program. “It’s important that veterans have their day,” he said. “It’s a small way to give back to them for their time and sacrifice of serving our country.”

After 35 years, Alexandria woman speaking again By Chris Mayhew

ALEXANDRIA - Jan Christian takes a bit of pleasure out of simple things like speaking on the telephone or ordering a meal at a drive-thru, things she couldn’t do for 35 years because she couldn’t speak. Christian lost her voice 36 years ago when she was 17 and a car dashboard crushed her larynx during an accident. After exiting the vehicle, Christian said ASK A AS SK K ABOUT A AB ABO BOU OUT UTT

she knew something was wrong as soon as she opened her mouth to speak. “I sounded like Linda Blair in ‘The Exorcist,’” she said. Her voice box voice was crushed, Christian said. And ever-after she could only force herself to whisper. “Yeah, you couldn’t hear me on the phone,” Christian said. At 17, losing the ability to speak is a blow to vanity, she said. Christian finished high school in Colorado

with a “trach” (short for tracheotomy) in her throat. Living in a world where everyone else could speak, Christian said she learned to fight for herself and she never stopped looking for a way to reverse the damage. In 2010, Christian underwent seven different surgeries to rebuild her vocal chords at University Hospital in Cincinnati and with the help of a speech therapist is talking again. Christian has lived in Alexandria for eight years after moving from her home state of Colorado with her husband. Christian said she has two children who are now grown, and an 8-year-old grandson, who were a big reason she decided to undergo the voice box reconstruction surgeries. Christian said she remembered how much she wanted to root on her children when they were younger and involved in sports. “And I couldn’t yell, and I couldn’t be that cheering mom,” she said. Christian said she hopes she can be more vocal for her grandson, even if she

still can’t scream and has problems speaking out when she gets emotional. Christian is also endeavoring to help other people who’ve lost their voices to speak again and has launched the nonprofit “A Girl Has to Talk” “I just wanted everybody to know that there is always an answer to any problem,” she said. “You just always keep fighting.” The first fundraiser for “A girl has to talk” will be a 5K run/walk at Sawyer Point in Cincinnati at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 29. The entire fundraiser idea started because she has a friend in Florida who wants to have similar surgeries in Cincinnati to regain his voice, but the man needs help affording plane tickets on top of the cost of the surgery, Christian said. “I just wanted to spread the hope,” she said. Hope has been her ally for all the years she couldn’t speak, Christian said. In addition to helping others, the website is a way to connect with others who’ve lost their voices because of

throat, thyroid or tongue cancers or people who experienced a trauma like herself, she said. Christian said her neighbor Cheryl Bell and friend Tammy Nolan are helping her organize the Oct. 29 5K run/walk, and that they’ve been very supportive. Bell said she and Christian are close friends, and they’ve supported each other since they met. “They moved in and I went down and said hello and we’ve been close ever since,” Bell said. Bell said she is the parent of a special needs son who can barely speak, so she relates to Christian’s experiences. Christian’s excitement about “A girl has to talk” has rubbed off on her, Bell said. “I think that she’s a special person and I think she thinks beyond herself, and she thinks that she’s been blessed,” Bell said. “She’s been blessed and she wants to take her gift and help others find.” For more about your community, visit

Larry Elliott, of Glencoe, fires a charge of powder (no projectile or ball) from a 1756 .62 caliber French fusil at the 25th Annual Salt Festival in 2010. This year’s festival will be held Oct. 14-16.

Big Bone Salt Festival is back By Stephanie Salmons

BIG BONE - An annual fall festival is returning to Big Bone Lick State Park for its 26th year.

State Rep. Adam Koenig, R-Erlanger, announced Sept. 28 that signs will be erected on Interstate 275 in Kentucky, officially designating this stretch of road as “Ronald Koenig R e a g a n Highway” in tribute of the nation’s 40th president, Ronald Wilson Reagan. In the 2011 Legislative Session, Koenig sponsored an amendment to House Joint Resolution 19 that honors the life, service, and accomplishments of President Reagan by designating Interstate 275, for its entire length inside the boundaries of the commonwealth, as the “Ronald Reagan Highway.” This amendment also directed placement of signs denoting this designation.

“History paints the 1980s as a time of positive social, economic and political change, which can be largely credited to President Reagan,” said Koenig. “While in office, he pursued policies that reflected his personal belief in individual freedom, brought

one of America’s greatest presidents.” According to Koenig, the newly minted “Ronald Reagan Highway” is only recognized in Kentucky and differs from the Ronald Reagan Cross County Highway in Cincinnati which also crosses Interstate 275.

Library supporters join debate over south branch By Chris Mayhew

ALEXANDRIA - A vocal collection of people in favor of a new library for southern Campbell County joined the voices of people opposed to the idea at a public meeting on the issue in Alexandria Tuesday, Oct. 4, during the fourth of five public meetings. More than 25 people signed up to speak about the Campbell County Public Library’s plan to construct a new south branch at the entrance to the Parkside subdivision at U.S. 27 about two miles south of the city limits of Alexandria. A total of about 16 people attended the first two meetings, Sept. 13 and Sept. 14, consisting mostly Tea Party members opposed to spending money on a new library. Leslie Mertens, a resident of the Parkside subdivision, said at the Oct. 4 meeting, inside the Alexandria Community Center, that her children were “real bummed” when they heard the new library might not happen. The area around and south of Alexandria is going to grow, Mertens said. “There is no time like now, you have to invest in the future,” she said. “The time to build is now.” Gene Moore, of Alexandria, said too many people

are hurting financially right now, and it’s a bad time to raise taxes. That’s especially true for people on a fixed income, Moore said. “I haven’t had a raise on my Social Security in three years,” he said. “I don’t know about anyone else.” Erik Hermes, of Wilder, a leader of the Campbell County Tea Party, said the library could consider building a one-floor building that would cost substantially less money. “We’ve got a very expensive basement in this building, and it’s not needed,” Hermes said. Don Hilker, of Southgate, said as an owner of Southern Lanes in Alexandria and a former middle school teacher in Newport, he has no problem with libraries as an educational necessity, but that there are other libraries in the county already. “However, it’s bad timing,” Hilker said. “The economy is in the toilet and it’s taxes, taxes, taxes.” Hilker said he represented 101 members of the Independent Business Association of Campbell County, and that he had a petition with him all the members signed opposing a library tax increase. Bob Heil, a principal at KLH Engineers in For Thomas, said as a business

owner, property owner and lifelong resident of the county he doesn’t mind the additional cost to build the new library “one bit.” Heil said the Tea Party’s opposition to the library is misguided because while they may question the return on investment from other taxing districts, libraries pay back “in spades.” “Libraries make Democracy work by providing free access to information so that citizens can make the decisions necessary to govern themselves,” Heil said. Growing up in Newport as one of 13 children, Heil said his family was poor by most standards. “But, my parents instilled in us a thirst for knowledge,” he said. Every Monday morning all the children went to the Campbell County Public Library at Fourth and Monmouth streets and checked out three books they read and returned within a week, Heil said. “The knowledge gained from those books, the inspiration to dream, and the fortitude to persevere beyond our current situation helped to shape a family of entrepreneurs,” he said. “My siblings and I are or have been business owners of over 22 business; eight of those businesses were or are located in Campbell County.”

Library presents plans By Chris Mayhew

JC Morgan, library director, led off the Oct. 4 meeting with a 20-minute presentation about the plans for the proposed new two-story building along with the assistance of the project architect Robert Ehmet Hayes. “There is a misconception that libraries have become irrelevant; that the Internet has replaced what we do,” Morgan said. Morgan said more than 560,000 people came to the libraries three branches in 2010 and checked out more than 1 million books, compact discs and DVDs. There were also 750 uses of the library’s meeting rooms, including by the Campbell County Tea Party, he said. And more than 30,000 people came to the libraries’ child and adult programs, Morgan said. “So, obviously people see a need for a physical library,” he said. The library did consider other sites, including the old Thriftway building in Alexandria, which would Sandy Ross, of Cold Spring, said she understands there are concerns about the cost, but that value is another part of the equation. “What is the value to a family that cannot afford a computer to have access to one via the library for their children or for themselves?” Ross aid. Ross continued to question what the value is for having a place for seniors to go and get books, attend lectures and most importantly accompany their grandchildren. “A library produces

have cost the library $3.2 million for an “empty shell of a building” that still would have had to be renovated extensively, Morgan said. “It’s too big, it’s too expensive and it’s not in the right place,” he said. The total cost of the proposed library will cost about $5 million including furnishings and the previous purchase of the land for about $775,000, Morgan said. The top floor will be where the library will be located, and the bottom floor will leave room for future expansion, storage and the possibility is being explored of allowing other government entities to use the space temporarily, he said. To pay for the operations of the new building, the library’s board of trustees is asking the question now of whether people are willing to pay an additional cost of a possible increase to the library district’s property tax rate, Morgan said. “We’re asking the question now,” he said. “We’re nine months away from making a decision.” The possible increase would raise the rate from 7.4 cents per $100 of assessed property in the county to 9.4 cents per $100 of assessed value, Morgan said. It’s a 27 percent increase, but in terms of money the difference will be an additional $20 for each $100,000 in assessed property value, he said.

value that cannot be measured,” she said. Good libraries enhance schools and property values, Ross said. Tim Webster, of Grant’s Lick, said he thought it was ironic to hear that some of the same people opposed to a southern library also campaigned for great representation for residents of southern Campbell County during the last election. Webster said he has three children who will use the library. “I don’t mind the increase because I think you guys have been good stewards of our money unlike

some of the other agencies,” Webster said. Cindy Minter, of Grants Lick, said she stood in line to use the computers at the Cold Spring Branch library so she could do research to apply for jobs. “When this economy tanked I had to use the library,” Minter said. Minter said she used to use the library in the old Alexandria city building in the 1970s, and she supports having a library closer to home. “I’ve been waiting decades to get a library back in this area,” she said.

Children’s Running Program spreads love of the sport By Amanda Joering Alley

The cross country teams at Highlands High School and Highlands Middle School are spreading their love for the sport, one child at a time. For decades the teams and their coaches have held the Children’s Running Program, meant to promote running as a means of exercise and introduce elementary school students to the sport of cross country running. Dan Baker, one of the high school’s coaches, said he feels that since there are similar programs for other sports like basketball and football, there should be one for running as well. “This program just helps us promote the sport and gives the older students a chance to work

HR professionals guide eighth-graders By Chris Mayhew

ALEXANDRIA - In Kentucky schools, students in eighth grade are taking career assessment tests, and human resource professionals are helping Campbell County Middle School students understand the range of different career options available and how to make their dreams happen. The Northern Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management has partnered with the middle school to speak to all eighth-grade students this year. The partnership matches well with the new career and college readiness goals they are working to meet, said Campbell County Middle School Principal David Sandlin. The HR professionals are speaking with students about expectations for prospective employees, skills needed and minimum standards all employees must meet before they will be offered a job, Sandlin said. “This is just a way to bring the real world down to the middle school level,” he said. Lisa Blank, director of recruitment and employee relations and human resources for St. Elizabeth

Healthcare, was one of four HR professionals to speak with the students Wednesday, Oct. 5. She asked the group of students for a show of hands if they were interested in a career in health care. Several students expressed an interest in nursing, medicine or physical therapy. Blank said students need to get good grades and lots of science, but they also need to think about different college programs because for some nursing schools like the University of Kentucky’s, freshmen aren’t accepted into the program and getting a degree might take five years instead of four. Students also have opportunities to volunteer, which looks good on a college application, and also might help determine if a career in healthcare is something they want to learn more about by experiencing a little bit of what working in a hospital is like. “Hospitals are about taking care of people, but it’s much bigger than that,” she said. “Hospitals are a city within a city.” There is a vast array of careers available at a hospital, and students need to think about what specific type of medical job interests them because there are so

ranging from kindergarten to sixth grade and are assigned team leaders from the high and middle school teams. The leaders lead stretches, organize races and run with the students.

The Northern Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management has partnered with Campbell County Middle School. many different fields and jobs available, Blank said. “We can set you up to shadow a professional for a whole day so you can see what they do,” Blank said. Amy Hehman, area director for Advantage Staffing, and chair of the Northern Kentucky SHRM chapter’s workforce readiness committee, said the idea to speak with middle school students started in January, and Campbell County is the group’s first partnership. The group is looking for additional schools interested in making a year commitment and having different HR professionals visit the school about four times a year, Hehman said. The companies involved in the program aren’t small, and they have something to gain by speaking with students as well, Hehman said. “They have a vested interest in the students and their education because they’re the people who will be applying for jobs in 10 years,” she said.

“I think this program is neat for us and the younger kids,” said team member Paige Dauer, a sophomore who has been involved in the program since sixth grade. “It’s a great way for us to bring them into running Highlands High School cross country in the future.” Team member Kelsey Clark, a junior who participated in the program as an elementary school student, said she knows from experience how beneficial this program is for the younger students, which is why she wanted to be a leader when she got older. “They get to learn about the sport, compete with each other and have fun,” Clark said.

School survey rates customer service By Amanda Joering Alley

To help the Bellevue Independent Schools improve their service to the community, they have developed a customer service survey. District officials are asking that community members, parents, staff and others complete the survey and give them feedback about what they doing well and what they can improve on. Superintendent Wayne Starnes said he got the idea to do the survey after seeing a similar survey on an email from Dr. Terry Holliday, Kentucky’s commissioner of education. “For several years, our district has been working very hard on improving customer service,” Starnes said. “This survey is a way for us to continue to improve as far as the service we offer.” Questions on the survey include why the person contacted the district, what method they used to contact the district, how long it took to get a response, if the response was accurate and fits their needs and whether the person they contacted in the district was professional.

District officials are asking that community members, parents, staff and others complete the survey and give them feedback Starnes said they also included a spot where people could provide their name and contact information to be contacted with the information they were looking for if they did not receive it the first time they contacted the district. Since putting the link to the survey on the district’s website a couple weeks ago, Starnes said they have already received several completed surveys. “We’re still trying to get the word out so more people will take the survey, but so far the ones we’ve received have been mostly positive,” Starnes said. To access the survey, visit the district’s website at and click on the “How are we doing?” tab on the left. For more about your community, visit

ALEXANDRIA - Since students can’t always make it to a planetarium show, the Parent Teacher Organization of Campbell Ridge Elementary School has brought the “dome” to them. Students of the school climbed into the inflatable “Dome Theater” inside the school’s gym Wednesday, Oct. 5, for showings of movie shorts including Cardboard Rocket for a mock trip around the universe and space. “It basically is a mobile planetarium,” said Michael Reames, a representative of the Grand Rapids, Mich.based Dome Theater while at Campbell Ridge. It’s a very different experience from the classroom for most students and it helps them learn and pay attention through the experience, Reames said.

Taylor Holtz, a fifthgrade student, of California, said her favorite part was seeing astronaut Neil Armstrong’s famous walk on the moon up close. “When they were showing it, it felt like we were actually moving in space,” Holtz said. Fifth-grade teacher Amanda McGinnis said the



school’s PTO provided the funding for the Dome Theater because it’s something many students might not ordinarily get to experience unless they travel into the city to an actual planetarium. “It was great because it tied into our science curriculum and social studies,” McGinnis said.

Camels explode for key district win By James Weber

ALEXANDRIA – It’s hard not to start with the numbers. In its first six games, the Campbell County High School football team had scored a total of 57 points. The Camels were averaging fewer than 10 points per contest, and came into their homecoming game against Dixie Heights having scored just two touchdowns combined in their last three games. So naturally, the Camels came out with one of the most stunning wins in Northern Kentucky this season, routing the Colonels 50-14 Oct. 7. Campbell won its second straight game after five losses, and both wins are in 6A district play. The Camels will now play at Ryle Oct. 14 for first place in the district. The Camels will win the district with a victory, while a loss gives Ryle a huge edge in the title race. “I was really excited for our kids,” head coach Stephen Lickert said. “They went out and executed the game plan. They played well. We’ve told them all year they’re capable of playing well, and they finally put it together.” Campbell racked up an eye-popping 508 rushing yards against Dixie. Junior quarterback Tyler Durham accounted for 239 of those on 39 carries, six per attempt. Senior tailback James Popp had 192 on 19 carries, 10 per attempt. Each player scored three touchdowns. While the Dixie defense has been porous this year, for much of the season the Camels have struggled to score against anyone. Lickert, in his first year at Campbell after coming over from Holmes High School, said he and the staff have been adjusting plans and lineups all year, and the right combinations clicked against Dixie. Lickert has converted the Camels from the pass-oriented offense under Troy Styer to a two-tight-end physical attack.

Campbell improved to 2-5, 20 in 6A district play, with the rout of the Colonels. Junior quarterback Tyler Durham rushed for 239 of Campbell County’s 508 rushing yards on 39 carries and three touchdowns.

Bellevue senior Jake Sparks pitches the ball Oct. 7 against Beechwood.

“We’ve had some scheme changes and personnel changes that have helped out a lot,” Lickert said. “They’re starting to understand those schemes. And our coaches are also understanding the kids now and what they can do. We feel they’re in the right spots now.” The rushing attack perhaps outshone a defensive performance that limited the Dixie offense led by Auburn recruit Zeke Pike, becoming only the third team to limit the Colonels to less than 27

points. Lickert said the defense made clutch plays and was helped by the offense, which gave the Camels about a 2-to-1 edge in time of possession. Lickert will look for more of the same against Ryle, a state semifinalist last year. “They are a very good team,” Lickert said. “They are the standard in this district and that’s what we’re striving to be. It’s not going to be easy. They’re physical and they’re aggressive, and they know how to win.”

ALEXANDRIA – Lynsey Lapré knew she had to play a bigger role in the offense for the Campbell County High School girls soccer team this year. The Camels senior has produced 17 goals this season to be one of the top scorers in Northern Kentucky this year. Campbell, which graduated a deep group after the 2010 season, including scoring leader Kaitlin Bryan, was 10-5-3 heading into the 19th District Tournament. “I’m used to distributing and this year I’ve decided to be more of a scoring threat, and it has worked pretty well,” Lapré said. Lapré and senior co-captain Kristen Rice (six goals) have been the leaders up front this year. Sophomore Natalie Visse also has six goals and senior Jessica Garza five. “This is one of the best years we’ve had as a strong team,” Rice said. “We’ve always had strong individuals but this year we’ve really grown as a team togeth-

In Campbell’s 1-0 regular-season finale win over Simon Kenton Oct. 5, the Camels scored when Lapré lofted a long shot toward the net and sophomore Lauren Macke got a foot on the ball

was good to do going into districts.” The SK win was the eighth shutout of the year. Senior Megan Rauch has anchored the net for her third year as starter, and junior Taylor Robinson leads the back line at sweeper. Morris said that combination has been strong for the Camels. “Megan has played almost every minute for three years,” Morris said. “She keeps us in the games no matter who we play. Usually when the ball gets put in the net it’s not because she made a mistake; it’s because it’s an unstoppable ball. She’s been fantastic.” The Camels are hoping for more success in the postseason. Heading into their Oct. 11 district match against Brossart, the Camels had never advanced to the regional tournament. “This is the most even district we’ve had,” Lapré said. “It’s a good playing field.” See more sports coverage at presspreps, www. facebook. com/presspreps or visit James on Twitter at @RecorderWeber.

Big Brother, meet the judge Underestimated allies of freedom are judges who uphold constitutional government and smack down regulatory agencies when they cross the line. In recent months, we’ve had some stellar rulings by fair-andbalanced judges. We’ve also witnessed some of the most egregious decisions, including Kenton Circuit Court Judge Gregory Bartlett’s refusal to issue an injunction against the printing of November’s ballots until county clerk Gabrielle Summe had followed the proper procedure of verifying signatures on a petition seeking to allow voters decide an unwanted government agency’s future. Representatives of the Northern Kentucky Tea Party and the Home Builders Association of Northern Kentucky sought the injunction after Summe arbitrarily backhanded thousands of signatures of citizens seeking to ax the illegal and bloated Northern Kentucky Area Planning Commission. Bartlett refused to step in. But we have some bold judges who remain faithful to both the spirit and letter of the law.

Kentucky Court of Appeals judges Kelly Thompson and Michael Caperton rightly ruled that Jefferson County Public Schools violated Jim Waters state law by not Community allowing parents enroll children Recorder to in schools nearguest est their homes. columnist Among those supporting the district’s nonsense is Jefferson Circuit Court Judge Irv Maze, who earlier decided that parents should have little say in the process, and that only the ruling elite of a school district can “determine what school the students … attend.” But every liberty-loving Kentuckian should thank Divine Providence for the fact that we have some judges who, unlike Maze, uphold the law. Thompson did just that, while deriding the Jefferson County bureaucrats’ claim that the law only allows parents to “enroll”

Move money to local banks

I’ve been expecting Occupy Wall Street to happen for the past three years. Anger has been rising on Main Street since the bailouts and the million dollar bonuses. Washington and Wall Street spent so much time talking to each other that they never noticed and figured it had gone away. It has not. Since 2008, I’ve written over 100 columns on Huffington Post and my new book, “Wealth Without Wall Street: A Main Street Guide to Making Money,” is a guide to getting Wall Street out of people’s lives. If I were 22 instead of 52, I’d probably be out on the streets. Instead, like most baby boomers, I’m watching the revolution on television. And supporting the protesters in a middle-aged way. “Wealth Without Wall Street” was released a few weeks before Occupy Wall Street took place. Along with sharing in the protest, I offer concrete solutions for reducing the power of Wall Street. In a chapter called, “Think Globally, Act Locally,” I said: I don’t advocate marching in the streets or writing a letter to your congressman. A better form of protest is to set up your finances in a way that reduces the influence of Washington and Wall Street in your lives. The book offers four steps to reducing the power of Wall Street over Main Street. Move your money from a Wall Street bank to bank or credit union in your community. By moving your money. you decrease the power and influence of Wall Street. It may stop those trying stunts like charging $5 to use a debit card as Bank of America wants to do. Local banks and credit unions will make sure that money is going back to your community. Use them as much as possible.

Get rid of your credit cards. Most of them are issued by Wall Street banks. Dropping your credit cards will take money out of Wall Street’s pockets and put it yours. Get rich slowly. A lot of the problems on Wall Street stem from their obsession with quick profits, in order to justify their million dollar bonuses. Those of us in the baby boom age range need to think about having money for retirement and for the rest of our lives. There are plenty of opportunities, off Wall Street, for people to develop a safe nest egg if they do it slowly over a long period of time. We don’t need Wall Street to “trade” our money for us. If you fit into the world of selfemployment, now is a time to think about it. In order to make Wall Street stockholders and bond holders happy, many large companies are laying off thousands of employees, or slashing their benefits and pensions. If you can use your skill sets in a business you own yourself, it is a better longterm move. The phrase “think globally, act locally” is one that baby boomers are familiar with. Although it is usually associated with the environmental movement, the best way to think globally, act locally is to do two things at the same time. Every person can work toward being a good citizen. That includes supporting local businesses, being a good neighbor, and gaining financial independence. Then, recognize that your individual actions can ultimately reduce the power of Wall Street and Washington over Main Street. Don McNay of Richmond is a bestselling author and financial columnist.

their children in the nearest neighborhood school but doesn’t ensure they can actually attend those schools. It “defies logic,” he said. Thompson then made this request of the Jefferson County school officials: “I’d like to ask that you concentrate on neighborhood schools and get out of the courtroom. You’ve got more litigation than any school district in the country.” The school district’s response? They’re going to appeal and force taxpayers to continue funding their legal antics. Speaking of taxpayers being compelled to fund courtroom mischief, before the recent ruling by Circuit Judge Rodney Burress, Bullitt County Health Department Director Swannie Jett bragged that every major Kentucky city that has instituted a smoking ban and faced litigation has won. So Jett’s health department, which reportedly has spent around $100,000 to defend its oppressive smoking ban, concluded it has carte blanche to regulate smoking in Bullitt County, including creating – and using police

powers to enforce – its own ban. “Nyet,” said the judge. Accepting the department’s position that “it has the authority to regulate any matter relating to public health would allow (it) to adopt regulations that prohibit the consumption of candy because it is bad for a person’s teeth, to prohibit consumption of deep fried foods, and to limit the consumption of red meat,” Burress stated. Smack! He also made it clear that only elected bodies, not unelected – and unaccountable – health boards, are allowed to create and enforce law. Smack! Burress said that unchecked, the health board’s regulation would also allow it “to regulate the time of night a person has to go to bed based upon the fact that lack of sleep influences a person’s health.” Then he delivered this blow, protecting the individual liberty of every Kentuckian endangered by one of these health boards: “This court does not believe that type of ‘Big Brother’ conduct was anticipated by the Kentucky State Leg-

Fort Thomas resident Ken Bowman, who volunteers in several ways throughout the city, poses for a picture outside his business on North Fort Thomas Avenue.

Fort Thomas business owner fills free time with volunteering By Amanda Joering Alley

When he isn’t running his business, Bowman Framing, Fort Thomas resident Ken Bowman spends a lot of time volunteering in the city and schools. Bowman, who also sells real estate in the area, serves as the city’s renaissance chairman, chairman of the Merchants & Music Festival, and serves on the cultural heritage committee as well as committees and groups in local schools, said Debbie Buckley, the city’s renaissance manager. “His shop is always open when it’s supposed to be, and his work is always impeccable,” Buckley said. “If anyone is in need, Ken is the first to volunteer his time and energy.” Bowman, who has lived

in the city most of his life and been running his business in the city for 22 years, said as a resident and business owner, he does what he can to help the city. “I love this community, and I like to do what I can to give back,” Bowman said. “I want to see the city’s current amenities thrive and new ones added to them to continue to enhance the quality of life for people in Fort Thomas.” Bowman, a music-lover, said Merchants & Music and the Renaissance as a whole have become a big part of his life. “It’s kind of become an obsession, but I enjoy doing it and think it’s important,” Bowman said.

Winter squash and pumpkins, oh my!

It is the time of year when pumpkins are purchased with thoughts of carving scary or happy faces or scenes into them. However, pumpkins and their other winter squash relatives can also be great additions to our fall menus and recipes. There are a variety of winter squash available in our region. Each has a slightly different texture and flavor. Try several to see which you might like best. Winter squash are distinguished by their tough outer skins. They come in various shapes and colors. They are all naturally low in fat and sodium. And, they are an excellent source of vitamin A and fiber. Choose squash that are heavy for their size with a hard rind that has no blemishes of soft spots. Wash the outside of the squash thoroughly under running water. Cut the squash open and remove the seeds and any stringy matter. You may want to peel the squash prior to cooking, but you do not have to. Winter squash can be steamed or baked. To steam, bring one inch of water to a boil in a saucepan. Cut squash into pieces and place in a basket

or on a rack. Cover the pan tightly and steam the squash until tender, about 30 to 40 minutes. Extension R e m o v e Notes from pan. Squash will Diane pull easily Mason away from the rind after cooking. Mash squash pulp and use as desired in recipes. To bake, cut washed and cleaned squash in half or into portions. Place in a baking dish and bake at 400 degrees F for one hour or until tender. Remove pulp from rind and use as desired. To substitute cooked squash pulp for canned pumpkin, use one and three-fourths to two cups of cooked pumpkin for one 15ounce can. Cooked squash can be frozen for later use. Freeze in recipe sized portions in freezer safe containers. Label and date before placing in the freezer. Thaw prior to use in the refrigerator.

Denny Robinson, of Alexandria, is mixing a garden railway display and seasonal decorations for a planned “Halloween Train Fest” at Southern Lanes Sports Complex Oct. 14-30.

New Halloween train exhibit chugs into Alexandria site

By Chris Mayhew

ALEXANDRIA - Denny Robinson is setting up a train and Halloween display to share the artistry of Alexandria-based Applied Imagination’s nationally renowned garden railway displays locally at Southern Lanes Sports Complex in Alexandria. Robinson has organized the “Halloween Train Fest” Oct. 14-30. The event showcases a train exhibit previously on display near the grounds of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. Robinson said he wants people to see an example of the work Paul Busse and his company, Applied Imagination, have been putting on display all around the United States for years. “It’s so people can see the displays, he’s our local artist,” Robinson said. Busse’s garden railway displays have become a mainstay of botanical garden exhibits in New York City, Chicago, Atlanta and other locations including a display at the Bellagio Conservatory in Las Vegas. For information about Applied Imagination visit the website Robinson is a great friend to Applied Imagination, said Brian Busse, son of Applied Imagination’s founder and the president of the comTHANKS TO APPLIED IMAGINATION pany.

Spicy or traditional, meatloaf is still comfort food Each month, I film my cable TV show “Love Starts in the Kitchen” at Union Township TV located at Firehouse No. 51 in Union Township, Clermont County. Sometimes I have guests and sometimes it’s just me cooking. Justin Hawthorne is the media production specialist who does the filming, and he and Gina DiMario, media/communications manager, do the editing together. Between just the three of us, we put out award-winning cooking shows. I do the shows the same way I do these columns, and jokingly call it “reality cooking” since it’s me who does all the purchasing, prep, cooking, etc. I just finished a show on my favorite comfort foods, and I couldn’t leave out this delicious meatloaf.

Really Good Meatloaf: Two Ways

Meatloaf with spicy glaze/sauce

Mae Ploy is a sweet, yet hot, chili sauce. It’s addictive and can now be found in most grocery stores. Now if you don’t like a sauce with a kick, substitute the optional barbecue sauce. That’s what makes the meatloaf “two ways.”

Preheat oven to 375. Film bottom of skillet with olive oil. Add onion and garlic and cook until onion is soft but not brown. Set aside. Mix ketchup and Asian chili sauce together and divide into half. You’ll have 1 cup total and will put 1⁄4 cup into the meatloaf mixture and the rest will be used to baste and serve as extra sauce on the side. Mix together breadcrumbs, milk, eggs, parsley, Worcestershire, oregano, 1⁄4 cup ketchup mixture, salt and pepper. Add meat and onion mixture and gently mix to combine. Shape into a loaf and put on sprayed baking sheet. Bake 50 minutes to 60 minutes or until done – internal temperature will be 160 and/or juices will run clear. About 15 minutes before meatloaf is done, baste with about half of ketchup mixture. After roasting, let sit five minutes before slicing and serve with extra sauce.

Meatloaf with traditional glaze/sauce:

Love Starts in the Kitchen

This has more traditional flavor. Use 1⁄4 cup of this in the meatloaf mixture and use the rest to baste and serve alongside.

Rita’s show airs on many stations, including • Ch 24 Time Warner Cable in Cincinnati

Mix together: 1 cup ketchup 1 ⁄2 cup brown sugar 1 teaspoon dry mustard 1 ⁄8 teaspoon each: ground allspice and cloves

Smashed potatoes with chives

Great alongside the meatloaf. 2 to 21⁄2 pounds Yukon gold or red potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks 1 ⁄2 cup half & half or more if necessary 8 oz. cream cheese with chives, room temperature Salt and pepper to taste Butter Boil potatoes until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and return to pot to let dry a bit. Mash with half & half. Add cream cheese and mash until cheese melts. Season to taste and add a dollop or two of butter if you like.


Top with Parmesan cheese. Eileen says substitute canned, drained tomatoes for fresh if you like.

Tips from Rita’s kitchen:

Ugly Tub?


Rita’s got two ways for you to fix that old favorite, meatloaf. is very soft but not brown. Sometimes she adds garlic. She adds a generous couple of cups chopped tomatoes. After cooking, she adds a small amount of sugar, some salt and pepper and a little more butter. If it’s too juicy, Eileen tosses in a few chunks of bread.

Use a light hand when forming meatloaf or burgers. Don’t form too “tight” of a mixture – that’s what makes

There’s been a lot of controversy through the years over who actually wrote the much-loved “Serenity Prayer,” but as a life-time pet lover, I can tell you Marsie Hall that they Newbold owned a dog or cat who Marsie’s shedded Menagerie profusely. I’m not saying this because I am some sort of Sherlock Holmes. The loose hair issue is something that all pet owners have to come to grips with, and there is truly no answer. Some come to this understanding sooner than others, depending on how inherently neurotic they are. It is a personal journey that all depends on your personality type. I liken it to Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross’ “Five Stages of Grief.” First, there is “denial.” This happens to all firsttime pet owners. Picture this: You have a job interview and are in a hurry. You are wearing your brand-new charcoal grey “power” suit. Stopping for a moment, for luck, you pick up your precious white Persian kitten or Samoyed puppy and


There are many options for removing pet hair from clothing and furniture available. give it a little cuddle to say goodbye. “I’ll be home soon,” you call out as you walk out the door. Ten minutes later, you are running back inside desperately searching for a lint brush because you realized once you were in the car and halfway down the street that your outfit is covered in fur. So, by the time you get to the interview you are a frazzled mess because you couldn’t find a descent lint brush and had to resort to using regular Scotch tape to try to get some of the darned stuff off of yourself. That takes us to the second stage: “anger.” You are understandably upset that you had to go to the interview feeling self-conscious about your appearance. Being a reasonable person, you decide so that this won’t happen again you‘ll go to the store and purchase a lint-brush. How hard could that be? Harder than you think, because once you get to the store you will come face to face with floor to ceiling displays of lint removers that look like rollers with sticky tape, Velcro brushes and melted rubber balls on handles. They have fancy names like, “Mr. Sticky,” “The Lint Wizard” and “Pet Hair Buster” and come with price tags to match. All have the word “miracle” somewhere on their packaging. Welcome to the “bargaining” stage, because you are about to embark upon a vicious cycle of try-

ing dozens of versions and ending up with a houseful of lint removers you only used once but don’t throw away because you feel guilty that they cost so much money. At this point “depression” takes over and everyone deals with it differently. This has taken many down the road of getting suckered in by late-night infomercials and ordering “As Seen on TV” pet hair removers that cost $19.95 if you act quickly and call in the next 10 minutes. These contraptions tend to make the problem worse because they usually attach to the vacuum cleaner and scare your pet so much that most of their fur falls out anyway. Eventually though, like me, most pet owners arrive at the final stage: “acceptance.” You not only know, but own the concept that short of wrapping your dog or cat in Saran Wrap (which you should never, ever do) it is possible to remove some, but never all of the pet hair from your clothing. This is a tremendously freeing experience. Plus, there is an upside. Like my friend, Mona Klingenberg who works at Atlas Dry Cleaner in Newport says, “All you have to do is match your pets to your wardrobe and you can save money!” For more pet care tips, visit If you have any ideas for future stories please contact Marsie Hall Newbold at marsolete@

State public health officials are encouraging Kentuckians to get the flu vaccine now to reduce the spread of illness this coming flu season. “We recommend that Kentuckians get their flu vaccine now to protect themselves and their families as we move into flu season,” said Dr. Steve Davis, acting commissioner of the Kentucky Department for Public Health. “Getting the flu vaccine each year is the best way to protect against the flu’s spread and severity.” The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices is now recommending flu vaccine for all individuals older than 6 months of age. People who should especially receive the flu vaccine, because they may be at higher risk for complications or negative consequences, include: • Children age 6 months to 19 years; • Pregnant women; • People 50 years old or older; • People of any age with chronic health problems; • People who live in nursing homes and other longterm care facilities; • Health care workers; • Caregivers of or people who live with a person at high risk for complications from the flu; and • Out-of-home caregivers

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month a pink lit restorative yoga lights up the room fundraiser with 100 percent of all proceeds going to Breast Cancer Research. According to The National Cancer Institute, exercising four or more hours a week and maintaining a lower to normal body weight may help lower breast cancer risk by decreasing a woman’s ongoing exposure to estrogen levels that are believed to contribute to cancer growth.

Campaign efforts in Northern Kentucky have gotten off to a solid start, with early Pacesetter campaigns like Atkins & Pearce, Inc., one of the Top 25 Pacesetters in the full regional campaign, having already raised $44,525, with $4,117 new dollars. “The campaign is using several key strategies to help us reach our goal, including a matching gift program, affinity group efforts and outreach to retirees and people who gave in the past but not last year. “Those efforts will help us raise more dollars and support more programs in Northern Kentucky that

focus on preparing children for kindergarten and helping people reach financial stability,” said Whitaker. The match program for new and increased gifts includes the Vickie Buyniski Gluckman Leadership Giving Challenge Match for new or increased gifts from women giving $2,500 or more and The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation Tocqueville Challenge Match for new or increased gifts of $10,000 or more. Other contributors to the matching gifts pool include Bill Butler, GE Aviation, HCS Foundation, PNC Foundation, and The Procter & Gamble Co.
