New home for nativity upsets some By Melissa Stewart

BELLEVUE — The donation of a nativity display to a Bellevue church has many residents upset. For 42 years the nativity, once the property of the Bellevue Neighborhood Association, has been displayed at Nagel Park. The association had leased the park from the city annually for the display. Recently, the association donated the nativity to St. John United Church of Christ. The plan is for the nativity to be displayed on the church’s

property on Fairfield Ave. “This decision was voted on by the general membership attending the Aug. 27 membership meeting,” said association president Katie Lauer. Established in 2006, the Bellevue Neighborhood Association is a nonprofit organization that focuses on the improvement of city parks, gardens, and planters with outreach programs for neighborhood improvement, tree and garden planting, and historic education.

ALEXANDRIA — With Hallow-

een is just around the corner, it’s time for some fun and a dark scary walk through the park. The Family Fun Fest starts at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct.19, at Alexandria Community Park, 3965 Alexandria Drive. The Haunted Walk, for ages 8 and older, will take place from 7:30-9 p.m. Admission is $2 per person. For more information, call the city building at 859-635-4125. Pam Proctor, secretary of the Alexandria Park and Recreation Board, said the annual fun fest has grown even more this year, and Alexandria Police Explorers will be ready to help everyone find a safe place to park. She said Basic Trust Child Development Center will bring a bounce house to the Fun Fest, and two new partners, Boy Scout Troop 96 and HGC ConSee HAUNTED, Page A2

FORT THOMAS — A group of business owners and residents want to partner with the city to turn a military storage building into a cultural hub for health and fitness and farmer’s market. The building, known as the Stables and is south of Tower Park, is visible from River Road and is near the intersection of the road with South Fort Thomas Avenue. The idea for the project is being proposed by Midway There, a new group of busi-

nesses and residents working with the city’s Renaissance Manager Debbie Buckley. Fort Thomas resident Robert Heil, principal at KLH Engineers, introduced the idea for the stables during the Oct. 7 council meeting. Councilman Thomas R. Lampe said he was impressed by Heil’s passion and the business expertise and intellect the group has brought before council. Lampe said he was happy with the way council was approached with the idea to improve the city. See STABLES, Page A2 Vol. 17 No. 25 © 2013 The Community Recorder ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Heil said the idea for the stables all started at the first meeting Aug. 8 of the new community renaissance group Midway There. There are no estimates for how much the project will cost, but the group will seek private donations and be set up as a nonprofit community development corporation, he said. So far the group has created a potential interi-

or design for the stables and has opened a dialogue with the building’s owner, the U.S. Army, Heil said. The Army’s 478th Engineering Battalion uses the stables building as storage. “We have a received a letter of intent from the Pentagon, advising us that they are willing to relinquish ownership of the stables building in exchange for a storage

building of equal footprint,” he said. The point of the stables project is to spur more investment in the Midway district, Heil said. The idea is to create a sustainable business climate by connecting the Midway district through the stables to the athletic fields, where Fort Thomas Independent Schools, has games and Tower Park, he said.

Heil said one idea for the stables is to create kitchen spaces similar to A set up AT Findlay Market in Cincinnati where chefs can rent space. The leased kitchen areas will also allow for culinary and nutrition classes for adults and children, Heil said. Midway There also has an entrepreneur lined up to open a yoga studio on the second floor, he said.


move.” Resident Lisa Barnett disagrees. “It’s a tradition. It’s been a tradition for 42 years,” Barnett said. “I always look forward to the nativity scene at the park. It always takes me back to the reason of the season. I’d like to see it back in the park.” Last month, Barnett started a Facebook page in an effort to notify residents and encourage the association to reconsider. “People in town didn’t know this had happened,” she said. “My purpose for the Facebook page is to get the word out there and to find out why this has happened.” Her page, “Keep the

nativity scene at Nagel Park,” has received more than 780 likes. Barnett also has a sign in her front yard that reads: “Keep the nativity in Nagel Park.” She hopes other residents will display signs as well. She took her concerns to City Council’s Oct. 8 meeting. However, she and other residents upset over the move were informed that there’s nothing council can do. “The Bellevue Neighborhood Association is a private entity,” Mayor Ed Riehl said. “We cannot tell a private entity what to do with property they own. We have no dog in the fight so to speak. We have no say over the property

the BNA owns or what they want to do with that property.” Resident Ed Ulsas supports the association’s decision. “I’m tickled to have the nativity down on (Fairfield Avenue),” he said. “I’m anxious to see how this goes. The BNA does a good job. Let’s be open to this.” St. John church pastor the Rev. Keith Haithcock said he hopes people will see that it’s just a venue change and “not a change in the spirit of the community or the spirit of Christmas.” “We’re hoping that people see it as an opportunity to continue the tradition in Bellevue,” he said.


ly to me,” she said. “There are other things about it that are good, too. It is eerily beautiful. Everyone who does the walk receives a glow necklace. As they walk the trail, you can look across the lake and see all of those necklaces floating along in the dark.” She also admires how more students have become involved in the walk. “I love how the high school students give of

their time. They are the unsung heroes, the Beta Clubs from Bishop Brossart and Campbell County High School and also the National Honor Society,” she said. “The students spend hours preparing. Then, the night of the event they dress up, set up their scary scene and spend 90 minutes out in the dark, performing for the people taking the walk.”

association said that it was a “fiscally prudent decision to donate it to a local organization of religion that will properly maintain and display the structures.” Lauer said the association had been looking to donate the property for some time now. “The officers and members who regularly volunteer and attend the association meetings feel like this is the right

SD1 hosts Halloween-themed treatment plant tours Villa Hills — Billions of live microscopic bugs. Toxic gases. Mysterious processes. It’s not another haunted house, but it might just be the most bizarre adventure you’ll experience this fall: tours of Sanitation District No. 1’s (SD1’s) Dry Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant. “Dry Creek may not be haunted, but there’s nothing scarier than being responsible for treating 34 million gallons of sewage every day,” said David Rager, SD1’s executive Director. “Except maybe for what could happen if SD1 isn’t able to treat this sewage.” Most people don’t realize that what you pour or flush down the drains in-

side your home can have scary consequences for SD1’s treatment process and, in turn, the health and safety of the public and the environment. Two-hour tours of the plant will take visitors through each step in the wastewater treatment process with a fun and interesting Halloween twist. In preparation for the upcoming holiday season, tours will also highlight the scary things that have an impact on the treatment process and simple tips the public can follow to protect their homes and public health. Special “trick or treatment” goodie bags will be provided, funded through a WalMart grant for education-

al outreach. Tours will be 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23, and 10 a.m.-noon Saturday, Oct. 26. Families and children ages 7 and older are welcome, but be warned: these tours are not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach. The smell and contents of Dry Creek’s Headworks building, where the sewage first enters the treatment plant, might make you turn green. Reservations are required. Call Valerie Forsyth 859-578-6894 or email mailto: by Monday, Oct. 21, for more information and to sign up. Can’t make it during the Halloween tour? You can schedule a tour anytime.

Remke Markets dropping bigg’s name from all stores Gannett News Service

In a major rebranding, Remke bigg’s will retire the bigg’s part of its name – officially becoming just Remke Markets. The Erlanger-based grocer with 13 stores throughout Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky is not making the change lightly. The switch starting next week is part of an effort to stress its local roots that national market research shows carries weight with consumers. “Bigg’s had and has a great brand name, but we found our customers were somewhat confused by who we were with two names: Were we Remke or bigg’s?” company President Matthew Remke said. The switch was first reported Oct. 9 on It marks the end of a grand experiment that started in 1984 when an investment group led by Minneapolis-based retailer Supervalu Inc. introduced a then-foreign concept: a supermarket that also offered general merchandise. That first bigg’s “hypermarket” in Union Township predated WalMart’s first supercenter, which opened in 1988 in Washington, Mo. Bigg’s struggled in the region after 2000 as competition intensified from

The bigg’s name will be removed from stores and replaced by a new Remke Markets logo. ENQUIRER FILE

not only Kroger, but other nontraditional rivals. Mass-discount stores like Wal-Mart, Target and Meijer – even drug stores like Walgreen’s and dollar stores like Dollar General – had discovered that selling food drove traffic. Remke acquired the bigg’s brand and seven stores in 2010 from Supervalu for an undisclosed sum. The company kept the bigg’s name on the stores because it had a good reputation. Remke considered bigg’s a great fit because both chains were known for fresh produce and customer service. Today, Remke and bigg’s ranks as the region’s No. 6 grocer with 2.2 percent local market share and $115.8 million in annual sales, according to industry watcher Chain Store Guide. “It was difficult to

communicate those values to customers with two banners. We’re hoping this clarifies what Remke stands for,” Remke said. Demand for local foods has skyrocketed and shoppers embrace the increase in local food options because they believe it helps local economies, delivers a broader and better assortment of products and provides healthier alternatives, according to a 2012 report from grocery industry consultants A.T. Kearney. Additionally, the National Grocers Association says people eat locally grown foods more frequently than organic. “‘Local’ is a growing trend in the supermarket business,” Remke said. “There’s a belief that shopping local is helping the community – and we agree.” Remke Markets partnered with Intrinzic, a Northern Kentuckybased brand design agency, to develop its refined branding.

Film explores tobacco agriculture A free screening of “Coming to Ground” and a discussion of agricultural innovation will be 7-9 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 27, at Saint John’s Unitarian Universalist Church, 320 Resor Ave., Cincinnati. The film is a feature documentary portraying Kentucky’s efforts to move away from tobacco dependency to create a new agricultural economy and culture. It looks at the historic changes in response to new regulations and the globalization of the tobacco economy. Told through the voices of Kentucky farmers, agricultural thinkers, and policy makers, this is a story of how Kentucky agriculture survived to create a new farm culture and the foundation of a new local food system. Kathleen Smythe, professor, environmental sustainability, Xavier University, will lead the audience in discussion to explore the way forward to a sustainable agricultural policy, given the adverse impacts of industrial agriculture, fossil fuels and climate change on the environment. The program is a part of monthly series of films and discussion called “Changing CO2urse” that address global climate change.

Campbell parades for homecoming By Chris Mayhew

ALEXANDRIA — The campus of Campbell County High School features a new stadium, but the traditional homecoming parade still rolls to the district’s middle school. Parade-watchers lined the sidewalks and curbs in the city’s Old Town area along Main and Washington streets to watch floats and fire trucks travel from the Alexandria Fairgrounds to Campbell County Middle School. The middle school was the district’s high school until 1995 when the new school opened south of city limits on U.S. 27. High school football games continued to be played at the football stadium at the middle school until Aug. 22.

play to the level that we are capable of,” said Morris. “Our goal is to win the district and region.” Junior goalkeeper Bryanna Schroers has now posted 10 shutouts on the season. The Camels’ tight defense has been a strength all season. It starts with the communication between Schroers and her backend teammates. “Our defense forces our opponents to take their shots under pressure and at lower percentage angles that helps our goalkeeper make the save,” said Morris. “(Schroers) does a great job directing the defenders to get in the best position at all times.” The win over Scott was Campbell County’s first win of October. The Camels played Notre Dame to a scoreless draw on Sept. 30, then lost consecutive matches for the first time all year. The Camels learned from their end of regular season losses to Simon Kenton and Ryle. “We took away that we need to be focused and ready to play each game,” said Morris. “No one is going to hand us a victory.”

ALEXANDRIA — Campbell County High School’s girls soccer team has a bugaboo. The Camels have not defeated Bishop Brossart since Sept. 22, 2003. The Mustangs ended Campbell County’s season each of the past two years. The last four matches between the two programs were decided in a shootout, with the Mustangs prevailing each time. Two of those shootout losses came in the 2012 postseason, in the 37th District, then 10th Region championship matches. After victories in the opening round of district play on Monday, Oct. 14, the Camels and Mustangs will once again tangle for the 37th District title. What makes these teams so evenly matched? “Both teams possess the ball well, have similarly talented players, and it is a big rivalry so everyone plays at their best when we play each other,” said Camels head coach Dave Morris. As heated as the rivalry is, and as many heartbreaking losses as the Camels have suffered at the hands (and feet) of the Mustangs, there was only one contest on the Camels’ minds as postseason play began. Prior to the opening match, Morris and his team were focused on the task at hand. “I never look ahead,” Morris said. “I am only concerned with Scott, our first-round opponent, as they are a quality opponent.” That focus led to a 1-0 Campbell County victory. Brossart defeated Calvary Christian, 10-0, in the earlier match. The Camels will host the Mustangs at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 17, for the district championship. The Camels enter with a 13-4-2 record, while the Mustangs are 14-3-0. Brossart won the team’s earlier meeting this year, 1-0 in a shootout, on September 25. “We will be successful if we

ALEXANDRIA — The impressive 2013 defensive statistics of the Bishop Brossart High School girls soccer team are a surprise to veteran head coach Brad Gough. The Mustangs graduated three out of four starters from 2012 from the defensive back line, and the main goalkeeper from last year. Despite that, with mostly new contributors, the Mustangs have been as hard to score on as a Hall of Fame pitcher in his prime. Brossart entered the 37th District Tournament with a 13-3 record, facing Calvary Christian in the semifinals. A win there would earn the Mustangs a berth in the district final and the 10th Region Tournament. The regional starts next week. Brossart built that record with the help of a stout defensive effort that has yielded only nine goals all season. Five of those came in the first three games of the year. Four teams have found the net against the Mustangs since, with local powers Ryle, Notre Dame, High-

lands and Newport Central Catholic managing just a single marker against the Mustangs. “It’s kind of funny because we graduated three of our four starting defenders and we also had one of our starting center backs go out with an ACL,” Gough said. “We have been playing great team defense from the forwards all the way back. They work hard to stay in control of the ball and we play great defense in our offensive third. It’s been amazing that See BROSSART, Page A9

we’ve been able to keep it rolling.” The back line is led by veteran center back Sam Cetrulo, a senior returning starter. “She has another gear like no other I have ever coached,” Gough said. “When she decides the ball needs to be hers, she can always go faster. She might be running at whatever people think is her top speed, but when an attacker makes a move, she can always turn it up a notch. She has great desire.” With junior Kelsey Wolfzorn at center back, and several fullbacks who split time, the back line, with senior goalkeeper Sarah Futscher, has been fierce. Futscher has three complete shutouts, splitting time with sophomore Hallie Hundemer, who has two. “We’re looking to go into the district tournament and have a really strong showing,” Gough said. “We have a lot of strong senior leadership. We’ve been playing really well offensively and defensively.” The offense has been spread out this year. Senior Abby Stadtmiller has 11 goals and senior Cori Ziegler 10. Nicole Goderwis (six), Madison Linebach (six) and Morgan Verst (five) all have five or more, and 15 different Mustangs overall have found the net. Stadtmiller and Ziegler also have double-digit assist and Megan Dierig has eight. Brossart is averaging nearly four goals per

NEWPORT Aug. 20 seems like a long time ago. That was the day Newport Central Catholic’s boys’ soccer team opened its season with a match at Ninth Region rival Highlands. The Bluebirds’ home crowd was into the game from the start and the Thoroughbreds lost their composure. Highlands sent NewCath home with a 2-1 loss and questions that needed answering. Since that time, the Thoroughbreds have developed as a team, finishing the regular season with a mark of 11-4-1. “We have grown as a team maturity-wise,” head coach Mike McDonald said. “We learned to stay composed under tough situations and we learned to play together as a team.” When the ‘Breds control the tempo and play how they want to play, they win. Their intense, attacking defense and methodical, controlling offense provide a balance that frustrates opponents. The formula has led to 11 wins, including a 6-2 mark against Ninth Region opponents. “The games we’ve lost, we’ve gotten away from our style of soccer,” McDonald said. One key turning point for the Thoroughbreds was the camaraderie formed between center midfielders Ben Tierny and Patrick Lious. At first, the duo competed with one another. Once they bought into working together, the ‘Breds began to control the middle of the field and the tempo of their matches. “Once they started connecting, we started playing good soccer,” said McDonald.

championship game, played Oct.15 at Highlands, after Recorder deadlines. Both teams will advance to the Ninth Region tournament, no matter the outcome. “We came in with a chip on our shoulder after the first Highlands game,” said McDonald. “(The rematch) is a stepping stone for us. We hope we can get off on the right foot. We’ll learn where we’re really at.” The Thoroughbreds made it to

game, nearly one more than 2012. “That is due to this year’s seniors really stepping in and taking last year’s seniors’ spots,” Gough said. “We play really fast and fearless as far as going into goal and taking shots, beating defenders one on one. The passing and movement allow us to create opportunities and we generally create more than the other team. It is because of our unselfish play. You can’t take one player out of the game and we don’t have one player who has 30 goals that they can focus on.” The Mustangs won 18 games last year and advanced to the round of 16 in the state tournament before losing to Notre Dame. Along the way, Brossart beat rival Campbell County three times in penalty-kick shootouts in 2012, and the teams remarkably played to the same result earlier this season. To advance far this year, Brossart may have to slip past the Camels at least once more. Whomever the Mustangs run into, the coach said the mental game will be very important. “We’re going to face adversity, whether we go a goal down or go into a shootout,” Gough said. “We have to be prepared to up our game and understand that we deserve to be in the game and win the game. We’re never playing as the underdog, we have teams that are equal to us and we have as much of a right to win as them. We can’t play with fear that a game will be our last.”

the state tournament in 2011, but fell just short last year, losing to Boone County in the regional championship. This year, NewCath has as good a chance as anyone to return to state. After allowing just 22 regular season goals, the Thoroughbreds have shown that when they play at their best, they can beat any opponent. “I believe state is wide open this year,” McDonald said. “Honestly, this is the best team I’ve had here.”

Haters should keep speaking up

Why does government spend so much? Because we love to fix just about everything and we think we can. Government is one of the natural ways we do this together. This alone, however, would not be enough to cause us to continue spending so much more money than we’re bringing in. Now that we’re nearly $17 trillion in debt, our spending equation relies primarily on something else. On Oct. 10, The Enquirer highlighted it nicely. As part of a column extolling the virtues of Obamacare, the author of this banner piece punctuated her argument with a typical one sentence attack, “A vote to defund, delay or repeal the Affordable Care Act is unequivocally a vote to harm women.” The accusation got me a bit worked up. I like to be liked. I love the women in my life – my mother, wife, daughter and sisters-in-law with all my heart. I represent women in my law practice. Heck, I even love my mother-in-law. I might be a hater and I didn’t even know it! But it gets worse. I’ve been told that my Obamacare concerns make me want people to get sick and die, which, let’s face it, probably makes me even worse than a hater. Today, if you’re

worried about debt and you tend to favor limited government, you’re not just against sick people and women. If you think that Social Security disability benefits are out of control (with benefit Rob Hudson awards going through COMMUNITY the roof), get ready, RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST you actually want to harm disabled people. If you are concerned about increased deficit spending for more government programs, get ready, you actually want to harm the poor and children. If you oppose increased deficit spending for more free tuition for college, get ready, you actually want to harm students and young people. If you believe that raising the minimum wage will curb entry level job growth, get ready, you want to hurt the poor. If you support Medicare or Social Security reform, you want to harm older Americans – but you already knew this one. If you believe that tax hikes will hurt job growth, you want to help the

rich and hurt the poor. There you go again. If you think people should come to the country lawfully before they receive benefits funded by taxpayers, you’re against minorities. Why is this tactic so effective? It’s an easy sentence to say or write. They coined the phrase “sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me” before the advent of the Internet and social media. The “hater” is left to defend, at some length, against a tactic which can demonize and silence. Here’s a better idea. On both sides, respect everyone in the process and listen to their arguments. Present cogent points about how and why proposals should or should not be funded, without lowest common denominator shots. Meanwhile, wrongly accused haters, I hope you will keep speaking up. America needs robust debate. The kitchen will remain hot, but you’re an essential part of our democracy.

Scholarship honors two in drug battle Since 2010, I have traveled across the commonwealth speaking to students about the dangers of prescription drug abuse through our Keep Kentucky Kids Safe program, an ongoing effort to help stop a problem that is plaguing many Kentucky families. I have heard the heartbreaking stories from students who have lost loved ones to prescription drug overdoses and I have grieved with far too many parents who have lost children the very same way. Dr. Karen Shay and Mike Donta are two of those parents. Sarah Shay, 19, of Morehead died of a prescription drug overdose in 2006, and 24-year-old Michael Donta of Ashland lost his battle with prescription painkiller abuse in 2010. Since their passing, Karen and Mike have been instrumental in the success of our Keep Kentucky Kids Safe program. So far, they have helped me educate more than 25,000 students, teachers and parents all over the commonwealth about this dangerous addiction, and they’ve shared the stories of their own losses. I cannot imagine the pain these two parents have lived through, but their passion for reaching out to students about the dangers of prescription drug abuse is inspiring.

That’s why I was proud to announce that, in memory of their children, two high school seniors affected by prescription drug abuse will now have an opportunity for a secJack Conway ond chance. In September, my office, along COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST with the National AssoCOLUMNIST ciation of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI), the Prosecutors Advisory Council, and Karen and Mike, unveiled the details of two $1,500 scholarships that eligible students can apply for now. In May 2014, the Sarah Shay and Michael Donta Memorial Scholarships for Hope and Healing will be awarded to one young man and one young woman who have excelled in their personal and academic endeavors despite seeing their family adversely affected by the dangers of prescription drug abuse. This scholarship program was actually Karen’s idea. She called my office after some of her friends and colleagues sold T-shirts as a fundraiser for the Keep Kentucky Kids Safe program because they knew how special it was to her. Karen and Mike have both lost



A publication of

their children, but they are fighting to help make sure other parents don’t experience the same reality. You can learn more about the scholarships by visiting our website at While visiting the website, middle and high school students can also learn how to get involved in our annual video PSA competition. As part of the competition, students produce a 30-second video showing the risks of prescription drug abuse. The winners also receive great prizes donated by NADDI and the Kentucky Pharmacists Association. This competition is just one component of our statewide initiative to warn Kentucky kids about the devastating consequences of prescription drug abuse. I encourage students to participate, and I am looking forward to all of the great and informative videos that will be produced. Our young people need to realize that it is never okay to take a prescription pill that isn’t prescribed to them by a doctor. Jack Conway its the Kentucky Attorney General.

Are you really listening? I am always amazed when I can be standing three feet away from my husband, or one of my children, say something that I feel is worth listening to, have them acknowledge with a head roll or slight moan, and later find that they had no idea that we had a conversation at all. I use the word conversation very loosely in those instances. My point is: how can someone look at you, answer a question – albeit with a nod – and not remember doing so? What can be even more frustrating is when those conversations include phrases like, “don’t forget,” “you really need to do this or that,” and “it’s important.” I’ve come to realize that it’s not that my children and/or husband have difficulty focusing, it’s just that sometimes when I want to talk, Julie House what they’re doing COMMUNITY seems more imporRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST tant or pressing to them at the time. And giving their full attention to both is nearly impossible. The game they’re playing or the show they’re watching takes center stage and drifts off into their long-term memory where they can remember and reminisce about it with friends or one another for eternity. Meanwhile, my urging to clean a room, pick up a dirty sock, or pick up a child from violin practice takes a back seat, drifting into the short-term memory, soon to be lost for eternity. Although my husband has never forgotten a child at violin, we have had to “rehash” weekly schedules, to ensure we were both on the same page. And if I am honest, my husband and children aren’t the only ones who have had to say, “Did we talk about this?” It causes me to wonder, How often has God had to “rehash” his plans for me, when my focus was elsewhere? How many times has he told me, “don’t forget,” “you really need to do this or that,” and “this is really important?” My husband is notorious around our house for saying, “If you would have just listened the first time ...,” and it’s so true. If they would listen the first time, there would be no negative consequences. No privileges taken away, and no guilt or sorrow. How true this must be for you and me as well. If we would just listen to the initial promptings of the Holy Spirit, we could bathe in the privileges and promises of God. We could avoid the negative consequences and guilt and sorrow that so often come with “not listening the first time.” But how can I hear the Holy Spirit when my mind is so filled with other things? Use the method I use on my children. “Put down the remote, iPad or book and look at me and listen very closely.” Try it on your heavenly father. Put down the remote, book or iPad, turn to him, ask him to speak and listen very closely. As you do, remember what Jesus promised in his word, “When he, the spirit of truth has come, he will guide you into all truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak; and he will tell you things to come.” (John 16:13) May you be blessed in the coming week, with a very clear “chore list” from your heavenly father. And upon accomplishing all your tasks experience an abundant “allowance” of his provisions, mercy and love.

Harvest time at N.Ky’s first winery By Chris Mayhew


he novelty of harvesting grapes in a vineyard attracted volunteers 10 years ago to StoneBrook Winery in Camp Springs. Now paid workers do the picking. “In 2001 we were the first vineyard in Northern Kentucky,” said owner Dennis Walter. The president of the Kentucky Grape and Wine Council, Walter said the past 10 years has seen Northern Kentucky’s wine industry mature. Other people grew grapes as a hobby, but not as a commercial enterprise, he said. Now StoneBrook is among eight wineries in Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties, and there are more than 30 people growing grapes to sell without having a winery. “Before it was just kind of a new crop,” Walter said. “Everybody was kind of scratching their heads wondering if you could actually grow grapes in Kentucky to begin with and Northern Kentucky in particular. We’ve proved over the years that you can grow grapes. You can make great wine.” Wineries in Northern Kentucky have stopped having to prove themselves. Walter said StoneBrook

wines have earned medals in international, state and local competitions. There is a StoneBrook tasting kiosk with a seating area at Newport on the Levee in addition to a tasting room in Camp Springs. “We’ve proven to ourselves and to our customers that we can do a good job,” he said. Switching to grape production was another reinvention for Walter’s family farm. Before grapes he was a cattle farmer, and his family raised tobacco. He has 10 acres of grape vines, and on Oct. 10 harvested his final field to gather about four tons of cabernet franc, a red wine grape variety. Walter first planted and bottled vidal blanc, a grape he uses to make a white wine by the same name. More than five tons of vidal blanc grapes were picked at StoneBrook this year. “The vidal blanc is where we hang our hat,” he said. Vidal blanc, which makes a sweeter wine, remains the winery’s top selling variety. But sales of the cabernet franc, a dry wine, is on pace to overtake vidal blanc sales, he said. “Usually in new wine country you have a lot more sweet wine drinkers than dry wine drinkers,” Walter said. “But as the industry

ages and your consuming public ages they tend to go little dryer.” Walter still gets excited at harvest time. “You look back and say, ‘Yeah we did a great job.’ We’ve weathered the wet weather and the mildews and some of these things that Mother Nature throws at you throughout the year. And you end up with a nice crop, so it’s kind of a good feeling.” The StoneBrook winemaking shop is near the bottom of his hillside vineyard fields. The grapes are

dumped by hand into a crushing machine. Stems are spit out of the machine’s side, and the juice and skins are piped into a 1-ton fermenting tank. “This is where the reds will ferment on their skins in this tank,” he said. “And the reason we do that is so that the grapes get color. So, they get a red color.” The red cabernet franc grapes will ferment for 10-15 days and are then put in a press, Walter said. “We’ll press them and

thus we have red wine,” he said. “And from there they’ll go into either stainless steel or oak barrels to be aged.” Aging red wine takes about two years, he said. “The longer, the better for the reds.” The Central Kentucky area around Lexington has been where the largest number of wineries in the state have been located, said Tyler Madison, director of grape and wine marketing for the Kentucky Department of Agriculture and the Kentucky Grape and Wine Council. “I could see Northern Kentucky rivaling Central Kentucky eventually,” Madison said. Northern Kentucky has a history of quality wines. German immigrants planted vineyards in the 19th century when the area was called the American Rhine, he said. Then came a vine-killing blight and Prohibition. “The industry basically got wiped out,” he said. In Kentucky 10 years ago there were less than 100 acres of vineyard, Madison said. “There is close to 600 acres in the state now,” he said. “And 10 years ago we had a dozen wineries, and we have 70 licensed and 68 operating now. That means there will probably be a couple more wineries soon.”

Pea salad just like one from Hotel Sinton the way if you want (you’ll get a smaller yield). Immediately roll bottoms in your choice of toppings. Set on sprayed pan to dry.

Today we started our first fire in the wood stove for the season. But it was a little weird, too, because when I looked out the window, the impatiens were a riot of color in the window boxes and the morning glories looked like a burst of blue sky Rita climbing Heikenfeld up the RITA’S KITCHEN white picket fence. The weather had turned quite chilly and it really was a perfect morning to have a nice, aromatic fire. If you ask most folks, they will tell you fall is their favorite time of year. I guess it’s because the outside work is winding down and so are we. And there’s nothing quite so beautiful as a mosaic of reds, browns and yellows as the leaves carpet our old country road.

Can you help?

Manyet Bakery’s cheesecake: I don’t want to disappoint Pat Barth, who asked again if any of you have the recipe or a similar one from this beloved Newport Bakery. This is the bakery that made the famous radio rolls and for which I found a similar recipe that I still promise to post on my blog. Frisch’s ranch dressing: I’ve had a couple requests for this, so if you have a similar recipe, please share.

It came from an older lady I knew who actually learned to cook in the kitchen of the old Hotel Sinton. What is interesting in this is the amount of mayonnaise in the salad; this may be lessened by the cook if they choose. The most important thing to stress here is that it should be served by tablespoon over

I was glad to get so many responses to Jan B.’s request for the Hotel Sinton pea salad. As always, thanks, thanks, thanks!

Mensa seeks N. Ky. members By Amy Scalf


Northern Kentucky’s best and brightest don’t have to travel very far to learn about or test for Mensa, but they probably already figured that out. The William A. Durr branch of the Kenton County Public Library hosted an informational meeting about the worldwide social nonprofit organization Oct. 7, and will have testing Sunday, Oct. 13. The meeting was intended to be a time for residents to ask questions and learn about the organization prior to the test, but no one showed up. That doesn’t mean there aren’t Mensa members nearby, nor does it mean that no one is interested. Brenda Clark, the library’s adult programmer, said test-takers were

have here at the library, so we reached out and they were kind enough to come across the river and help us out,” she said. “We typically favor Cincinnati, because that’s where our chapter is based, but members come from all over the region,” said Bob Fitzgerald, Mensa member, test proctor and new member co-chairman. “There are a lot of member in Northern Kentucky,” said Verale Phillips, a Mensa member from Florence, who serves with Fitzgerald as new member co-chair.

They said Cincinnati’s Mensa members meet for a variety of gatherings – ethnic dinners, museum tours, nature hikes, game nights and organizational meetings – throughout the year “Mensa really is a social organization,” said Fitzgerald. “We get together and colors brighten, sounds intensify. We find inspiration. We tune in, turn on and have fun.” He said the biggest misconception about Mensa is that members are socially awkward. “Some people may misconstrue quietness,

and we tend to go quiet when we’re not understood, for lack of social skills,” he said. “We tend to wait for input instead of reaching out, and may, therefore, seem unreachable. Fitzgerald said the global organization has 110,000 members, 57,000 of which are in the United States. He said the Cincinnati chapter’s membership ranges from 4 years old to 102, and they’re always looking for more people to join their society. The next testing date will be Saturday, Oct. 26, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Newport branch of the Campbell County Public Library, 901 E. 6th St. Visit to register online for a testing voucher and bring it to the test. Applications should be filled out and paid online before the program. Tests cannot be purchased from Mensa or library staff during the event.

Airport chief to lead network The police chief at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport has been named president of the Airport Law Enforcement Agencies Network, an international association of airport law enforcement agencies. Chief Kevin Murphy has been appointed president for network (ALEAN). ALEAN’s membership includes more than 100 U.S. airports and numerous international associate members in Canada and the United Kingdom. Many governmental law enforcement agencies, such as the FBI, Interpol, U.S. Secret Service and federal regulatory agencies from around the world also hold adjunct membership. “I’m honored to hold this position and excited to serve an organization dedicated to the delivery of professional law enforcement and aviation security,” Murphy said. “I consider it recognition of the great work by my team and the other professionals here at CVG.” Murphy began working with CVG’s police department in 1992 and was

named chief in 2005. He is a graduate of Wilmington College and is currently Murphy president of the Northern Kentucky Police Chief’s Association. Murphy is a graduate of the 201st class of the FBI National Academy, the U.S. Secret Service Dignitary Protection Class and the Kentucky Department of Criminal Justice Training School of Strategic Leadership. “We always say an airport is like a small city and Chief Murphy and his department do a tremendous job of ensuring the safety of the people who come to and from the airport,” said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer of CVG. “We are proud that a prestigious organization such as ALEAN has recognized what a top-notch professional he is, and I would expect him to make immediate contributions to ALEAN’s mission.” Started in 1988, ALEAN works to influ-

ence national and international policies and procedures for strengthening the safety and security of commercial aviation. The organization considers one of its most important roles to be the development and delivery of critical training programs for airport police agencies. Over the years ALEAN has played a significant role in ensuring a successful 1994 World Cup Soccer Tournament in the United States, developed a model partnership with the federal government with the National Explosives Detection Canine Program, managed the airport community’s post 9-11 law enforcement response, initiated a national aviation law enforcement benchmarking project, put in place a vital real time electronic intelligence sharing network for airport criminal investigators and an administrative information sharing network, helped local agencies develop and share model best practices programs, and assisted with the development and integration of public policy related to aviation law enforcement.

‘Sunshine vitamin’ an important part of any diet It is called the “sunshine vitamin” because our bodies can make it when exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D helps our bodies absorb calcium and phosphorus from foods. All of these nutrients are needed for strong bones. Vitamin D is also used for other

functions in our bodies and is important for muscle health. Vitamin D levels can be easily checked through a blood test ordered by your health care provider. In the 1930s, legislation was passed to fortify dairy milk with vitamin D to help in the fight

foods. Fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, and mackerel are among the best sources. Beef liver, cheese and egg yolks provide small amounts. Almost all milk in the U.S. is fortified with 400 IU of vitamin D per quart. Foods made with milk like cheese and ice cream are usually not fortified. Vitamin D is often added to breakfast cereals. It may also be found in some brands of orange juice, yogurt, margarine, and non-dairy beverages. Be sure to check the label for vitamin D fortification.

Exposure to the sun allows the body to produce vitamin D. However, exposure through a Diane window Mason does not EXTENSION allow for NOTES the skin to produce vitamin D. Cloudy days, shade, and having dark-colored skin cuts down on the amount of vitamin D the skin makes. Vitamin D is fat-soluble. It can be stored in

the body for future use. Too much vitamin D can cause health problems just as too little can. It is best to discuss your vitamin D levels with your healthcare provider. Also discuss any vitamin supplements with them to ensure optimal health. Take a close look at the foods you eat to see if you are getting adequate amounts of vitamin D for your health. Diane Mason is county extension agent for family and consumer sciences at the Boone County Cooperative Extension Service.

Children’s center honors Hartman as ‘champion’

Furniture Fair’s advertising front man Ed Hartman may have thought it was a routine Tuesday morning meeting ... that is, until his wife, Betty, walked into the conference room at the company’s headquarters in Fairfield. Betty joined Vickie Henderson, executive director of The Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center, who presented Hartman with its Champions for Children award. The inner-offices of Furniture Fair and managers connived to keep the award presentation a secret from Hartman, a well-known face in Greater Cincinnati and the director of marketing for the family-run furniture store for nearly 25 years. “It was a total surprise; how my wife kept it from me I do not know,” Hartman said. “But being affiliated with the (Northern Kentucky) Children’s Advocacy Center rounds out what I strongly believe that no children should have to shed a tear for any reason. It’s quite an honor and hopefully personifies what I stand for and my personal dedication to children.” The Champions for Children award recognizes individuals and corporations who demonstrate true passion, ongoing commitment and dedication for the organization and its mission to keep children of abuse safe in Northern Kentucky, Hen-

Ed Hartman receives the Champions for Children award from the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center. Vickie Henderson, left, executive director of the NKYCAC, surprised Hartman with the award on Oct. 1 at the corporate offices of Furniture Fair in Fairfield, and was joined by his wife, Betty Hartman for the special presentation.PROVIDED

derson said. “Ed is truly a champion for the children and families we serve,” she said. “He has helped us make made enormous differences to people who really need help and has been with us since we started in 1987.” Henderson explained that Hartman was a “tremendous supporter” of the St. Luke Foundation which sustained the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center prior to its separation from St. Luke Hospital. Since that separation in 2009, Hartman has served as the emcee and auctioneer for the center’s annual

fundraising gala. “Ed has generously provided his time and talent as our celebrity emcee and live auctioneer and his presence has made our gala one of the ‘do not miss’ fundraising events,” Henderson said. Hartman will be serving as the emcee for its next gala, Masquerade Madness, on Saturday, March 1, at the Airport Marriott in Hebron. All proceeds go toward supporting the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center and its mission. “Our No. 1 goal is to keep children safe and provide support and ser-

vices to children and their families in an abuse crisis,” Henderson said. Last year, the children’s advocacy center served nearly 750 children in a coordinated community response to child abuse. The Center is the only Children’s Advocacy Center in Northern Kentucky and has been recognized as a national center of excellence by the National Children’s Alliance. “I think we all have to realize these children are so vulnerable to treatment that no one deserves,” Hartman said. “Working with the NKYCAC gives me an opportunity to express myself and support their cause. I try to do as much as I can for children in the greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area.” “Ed embodies what it means to care for children in our community. He is dedicated to ensuring that children are protected and that no child stands alone when they are a victim of physical or sexual abuse or have witnessed a violent crime,” Henderson said. “It is through heroes like Ed that we are able to do the work we do every day to keep children safe.” “No child should have to cry,” Hartman said.

or dead plant by next summer. Pruning cuts now would also leave fresh wounds exposed to the cold. Spring-blooming landscape trees and shrubs like redbud, lilacs and forsythias, should be pruned within two weeks after their flowers fade. Pruning these plants from July through their normal spring bloom time would remove potential flowers, since these plants make their flower buds the previous season and then bloom on their old wood. Summer-blooming trees and shrubs like butterflybush, annabelle hydrangea and rose-of-sharon start flowering in June or later and should be pruned in early March before growth begins. These plants make their flower buds as they put out growth in the spring, and then they bloom on

the new wood. Shade trees can be pruned in March or June (including all types of maples, ash, oaks, honeylocust, etc.). Some trees (like birch, yellowwood, elm and maple) may bleed, or lose sap, after being pruned in March. This does not actually harm the tree, but if you want to avoid it you can wait until June to prune these species (although branches will be heavier and bulkier to haul away due to all the leaves at that time). Landscape trees and shrubs should be fertilized in late November or early March, based on soil test results. Following these guidelines will help assure strong, healthy trees in the years ahead.

Don’t do too much fall clean-up Question: I’m getting ready to start my outdoor fall clean-up. The trees and bushes in my landscape are getting too big. Should I go ahead and fertilize them when I cut them back? Answer: There is a popular myth or misunderstanding that circulates around at this time of year. It says that fall is the time to do most of your pruning and cutting back of trees and shrubs, as you clean up the landscape for winter. Well, actually that is bad advice for this part of the country. Late summer and fall is a time when trees and shrubs naturally acclimate, or harden off, for winter. As the days grow shorter and temperatures cool down, this process takes place on its own, unless we interrupt it by pruning heavily or applying excessive nitrogen fertil-
