Bellevue resident runs to inspire others By Amanda Joering Alley

It took Bellevue resident Skylar Steinman getting to one of the lowest points in his life to get him to the high point he’s at today. Years ago, while he was dealing with issues with his career and relationships, Steinman said life was extremely difficult and got even worse when his father was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease and his brother with leukemia. “Life seemed to be falling apart, but the Lord led me in a different direction,” Steinman said. “With little to offer in addition to prayer, I ran the Cincinnati Flying Pig on May 7, 2006 to show my family, my friends and even myself that life was still worth living.” From that moment, Steinman said his life would never be the same. “Never before had I experienced anything like it after years of running alone and now I was running with thousands of others,” Steinman said. “It was then that I realized we were not alone

ments and reasons for running inspired him to take on the biggest adventure of his life. His goal: running around the

country and the world. Currently, Steinman in nearly one-third of the way through running 57 marathons, including one in each state, one in Washington, D.C. and one in each of the six remaining continents. For marathon 19, Steinman is running the ING New York City Marathon Sunday, Nov. 1. Besides being extra meaningful since it will make him one-third of the way through his goal, it is also the first race he is running since receiving the honor of being named a Kentucky Colonel by Gov. Steve Beshear, exactly 30 years after his father received the same honor in 1979. “(I’ll be) representing Kentucky as I do my best to encourage others to continue carrying on in life, no matter what they may be facing,” Steinman said. To further accomplish his goal of inspiring others, Steinman created Faces in Races (www.faces to give endurance athletes and their supporters from around the world a place to share their stories and pictures of hope and inspiration.

Northern Kentucky University group to restore stream

On the record

Letters to Santa


Fourth-graders at St. Joseph School, Cold Spring, are studying their home state of Kentucky. While they were learning about the landforms within the state they constructed maps to help them visualize what Kentucky looks like. Shown: Emily Johnson, Macey Heck, Peter Kahmann, and Kevin Kruer start painting their landform map.

Northern Kentucky University’s Center for Applied Ecology is currently drafting a plan for a stream restoration project in Fort Thomas’ Tower Park. During the project, the group will attempt to naturalize the stream, including removing sections of pipe and debris and stabilizing eroding banks and stream channels, said Jay Treft, assistant city administrator. “The city is fortunate to have the center utilize its ecological expertise and resources on this project,” Treft said. “The project will make nearly $800,000 worth of immediate improvements to natural stream areas within Tower

Park at no cost to the city.” The project is being paid for by the Northern Kentucky Stream and Wetland Fund, which consists of fees that are paid when development impacts streams. Treft said improving the stream will help restore water quality since local streams feed into the Ohio River, which is the area’s primary drinking water source. “The project will also help to restore aquatic and wildlife habitat, as well as provide quality green space and natural areas that residents can enjoy and have access to,” Treft said. Treft said the center is working on the final design phase of the project, which is expected to begin in early 2010 and take approximately one year.

County sharing its IT professionals By Chris Mayhew

Campbell County Fiscal Court is now providing contracted Internet Technology services to seven other agencies including three cities and two fire departments. The idea for the service started in November 2007, and the City of Dayton signed the first contract for service in December 2008, said Brett Ruschman, director of the county’s IT Services division. The service can save local governments money, and it’s a high quality service, Ruschman said. “We’ve worked on police laptops, so we know how to work on their police laptops because it’s all the same service around the state,” he said. Including Ruschman, the county employs two IT professionals,

and a part-time IT intern position. “Prior to them we had used several different private contractors or businesses,” said Mick Vank, the City Administrative Officer for Cold Spring since he started the job in November 2008. “We found that the one that we were using when I got here was not as responsive as we liked.” Vank said sometimes the city left a message with their former IT company and the company got back in a day or two, or sometimes not at all. The county has been very responsive, and usually gets to the city the same day called, he said. Plus, the county’s IT staff has made special efforts to solve city problems, and even came out after 5 p.m. to fix a computer problem, Vank said.

“Our other provider would have said we’re open 9 to 5, end of story,” he said. While the city has had more IT work this year installing a new server and other upgrades, the cost of the county’s contract is $50 per hour, compared to about $100 per hour for a private company, Vank said. Campbell County Media Central has signed to receive IT service with the county within the past month. Previously the staff at the media center had limited technical ability and tried to fix things themselves, said Jennifer Teipel, executive director of the center. Now with some staff changes and the new IT service will enhance the center’s services, Teipel said. Campbell County Judge-execu-

tive Steve Pendery said the hope is that the service will allow local governments to do more sharing of networks and other technology. The initiative was pretty much Ruschman’s idea, said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine. “I think that this is a good illustration of how local governments can work together to create efficiencies and share capacity and resources that exist in different organizations,” Horine said. “They’re available for emergency kind of issues 24-7, because we are servicing police and fire services,” he said. And there’s no limit to how many organizations the service could help, Horine said. The service makes money for the county, but mostly the expense of the staff is covered, he said.

Funding concerns fuel education forum By Chris Mayhew

An Oct. 22 public forum in Wilder about Kentucky public schools was a stage for career educators to warn of dire consequences if state leaders allow the economy to squeeze education funding further. Previous cuts in areas including after school tutoring, teacher professional development and textbook funds have already hit school districts hard, said Jack Moreland, the keynote speaker at a public forum titled “How these critical times in education affect our families and schools.” The public meeting was the third in the Campbell County Democratic Woman Club’s non-partisan public

service “Whose Life Is It Anyway?” meetings series. “School districts are having to do things that they know are counterintuitive to what they know will make them successful,” Moreland said. Moreland, now president of Southbank Partners, spent a career in education including as superintendent of Dayton and Covington’s public schools and as a university president. As Dayton’s superintendent, Moreland was part of a group of school districts that challenged the state’s public school funding formula that led to the creation of the Kentucky Education Reform Act in 1990. That caused the largest increase in state public edu-

that happens. Sharron Oxenide, president of the Kentucky Education Association, said she appreciate the governor’s commitment not to cut the formula that funds things like teachers salaries. Carol Rich of Bellevue, a former member of Bellevue’s Board of Education, said she wanted to know where the money from gambling revenues would go to if that issue is ever approved. Of course some of the money should go to help out the horse racing industry, Rich said. “But some has to go to the schools,” she said. Right now, the same problems that erupt in the home are erupting in the classroom even more because of the

economy, and schools don’t have the adequate resources now to deal with that, said Linda Klembara, a member of the Democratic Woman’s Club. Schools can’t take anymore cuts, Klembara said. “It’s the perfect storm that’s swarming and the general assembly has to make some priorities, they need to make children a priority, she said. Rep. Arnold Simpson, DCovington, who was scheduled to be a part of the panel was a no-show at the meeting.

School rainy day funds targeted By Chris Mayhew

A threat from state legislators to take reserve funds from public school districts to balance the state budget is the latest concern for school officials trying to avoid staff cuts in the face of dwindling funding. Kentucky House Speaker Greg Stumbo has announced a potential plan to take contingency funds from school districts. Required by state law, it’s essentially a rainy day fund. But legislators are also confusing contingency funds with end of year balances that school districts use to pay salaries and other bills during the summer when state revenue tied to student enrollment isn’t coming in, said Campbell County School District Superintendent

Anthony Strong. “I know that what the legislators are seeing is that there’s a big pot of money out there, but that’s not all necessarily contingency,” Strong said. People are still working in the buildings, facility maintenance is ongoing, and when schools open up for the beginning of the year there has to be a balance to pay for related expenses, he said. The district’s 2 percent contingency, required by state law, is about $800,000, but the district’s end of year balance at the end of the past fiscal year was between $2 million and $2.5 million, Strong said. A 5 percent contingency, which the state recommends a district carry from year over year is about $2 million, he said.

Reliable. Just like you.

In previous years, the district’s carryover has helped balance the budget, Strong said. In this year’s budget, federal stimulus money was used to put back positions that would have otherwise been cut or not funded in the first place. The positions funded by the stimulus included some counseling positions that were otherwise going to be reduced, and intervention teachers working with special needs students. Most of the stimulus money was spent on areas that affect the district’s federal No Child Left Behind Act testing scores because the money had to be tied to students with disabilities, and students on free and reduced lunches, Strong said. The district has already in the past two budget years had to make some difficult decisions of what staff positions would and wouldn’t get funded, he said. Staff makes up 70 percent of the district’s budget, he said. If the legislature takes money or cuts more from the district’s state funding, depending on how deep they are, the district will have to make some tough decisions,

Strong said. “It may mean some of those things that we had brought back do get cut,” he said. At a public Oct. 22 meeting in Wilder about education funding in Kentucky, Jack Moreland, president of Southbank Partners and a retired educator and superintendent, said he understands why the contingency funds are being targeted. Moreland said while he doesn’t believe any Northern Kentucky school districts have hoarded their contingency funds, some other school districts in the state have as much as 40 percent a contingency fund. That money should be spent on the children and not saved, he said. But for district’s not holding back lots of extra money, taking the contingency would be hurtful, Moreland said. At the same education meeting, Sharron Oxendine, president of the Kentucky Education Association, said she’s not sure what school districts will do if their contingency is going away. “If there’s cuts, where do they come from?,” Oxendine said. “Which kids get left behind? Which ones don’t?”

cation funding in Kentucky’s history, Moreland said. The case probably can’t be made right now that Kentucky’s education system is inequitable, he said. “But if we continue to roll back support... I think we’re going to have a case dealing with inadequacy,” Moreland said. Panelist Campbell County Judge-executive Steve Pendery, a Republican, said the area is under-educated compared to national norms, and a lack of education leads directly to social problems. A lack of an education often leads people to jail, which is a drain on society’s resources, Pendery said. That’s why the county is working with the United Way, he said.

Chick-fil-A opens in Florence By Justin B. Duke

Free chicken is all that’s needed to pull an allnighter. Chick-fil-A opened its first Northern Kentucky location Oct. 22, but before the first dollar came in, the area gave them a warm welcome. At 6 a.m. Oct. 21, 140 people were in line to wait in line for a chance at a year’s worth of free food. At each of its openings, Chick-fil-A offers 52 vouchers for a free meal to 100 of its first customers. Campers pitch tents in the parking lot and spend the day with a DJ playing games and dancing. “It ends up being like a big tailgate,” said spokesperson Lindsay Ables. Best Buy joined in the

Florence was chosen over locations around Chicago, Atlanta and other cities around the country. Now that they have a foothold in Northern Kentucky, Chick-fil-A is looking for new locations. fun by setting up televisions where campers could play video games like Madden NFL 10 and DJ Hero, which wasn’t available to the public until Oct. 27. “It’s my first time (camping out) and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it,” said Anna Cason from Berry, Ky. Cason traveled up to Florence with Sam Pierce of Harrison County who was attending his 15th campout. “It’s more or less like taking a mini-vacation and hanging out with some buddies,” said Matt Garner of Lexington. Also joining the fun was Chick-fil-A President and

COO Dan Cathy, who flew in that day from Atlanta. “I’m a party animal,” Cathy said. Chick-fil-A has a strong momentum building in Greater Cincinnati and the time was right to move into Northern Kentucky. “I would bet this is one of the most requested areas for a store,” said Operator Dustin DiChiara. DiChiara is a 13-year veteran of Chick-fil-A who’s been working at the store in the Tower Place Mall in Cincinnati. Waiting for the Florence store to open has been a long road, but as he sat with

the campers, he was excited to finally get going. “Folks are genuinely super-pumped about a Chick-fil-A,” DiChiara said. The Florence store is one of 69 the company will open this year. “We passed up a lot of places,” Cathy said. Florence was chosen over locations around Chicago, Atlanta and other cities around the country, he said. Now that they have a foothold in Northern Kentucky, Chick-fil-A is looking for new locations, DiChiara said. “We’re looking at a few locations in Newport,” he said. The new Chick-fil-A is located at 4980 Houston Road in front of Meijer and is open from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday though Saturday, with breakfast until 10:30 a.m.

NKU’s library to host launch of encyclopedia Northern Kentucky University and the Friends of Steely Library will sponsor the official launch of The Encyclopedia of Northern Kentucky Friday, Nov. 6, at 6:30 p.m., in the W. Frank Steely Library, on the Highland Heights campus. The program, with Nick Clooney serving as master of ceremonies, will be followed by a signing with many of the book’s con- Clooney tributors. Books will be available for purchase at the event, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Friends of Steely Library. The event is free and open to the public. Northern Kentucky has been defined as a “gateway” in many respects. Its position along the Ohio River makes it an economic and industrial gateway and its location along the Mason-Dixon line defines it as a gateway between the North and South. The region, which was also an important gateway in early westward expansion, now serves as a tran-

sitional zone between two major climate classifications and exists in a state of socio-economic limbo, as it is classified as neither urban nor rural. Northern Kentucky’s consciousness about its border status has fostered a culture that differs greatly from the rest of the state, but this awareness has also served as an obstacle when defining regional identity. The Encyclopedia of Northern Kentucky defines a region of more than 450,000 citizens and includes more than 2,100 entries written by more than 300 authors who chronicle the historical, geographical, social, cultural, religious, political and economic history of the area. The volume contains 170 images and 13 maps, providing a complete overview of the region’s geography and exhibiting the area’s relationship with the surrounding cities. The Northern Kentucky region shares a culture markedly independent from the rest of the state, drawing major influence from the metropolitan area of Cincinnati, one of America’s first inland cities. Consisting of

11 counties, Northern Kentucky exhibits a unique mix of northern industry, southern tradition and German influence resulting from the influx of immigrants who settled there in the 1800s. The region serves as one point of the “Golden Triangle,” along with the cities of Louisville and Lexington, and continues to greatly influence industrial, social and economic development throughout the state. Despite its somewhat ambiguous regional identity, Northern Kentucky is home to a number of companies and organizations essential to the state’s economy and commerce, including Ashland Oil, Fidelity Investments, Omnicare, Toyota North America and United States Playing Card. Similarly, the Cincinnati/ Northern Kentucky International Airport serves as a major hub of national and international travel. While it seems that Northern Kentucky is often forgotten when compiling Kentucky history, the 21st century has brought with it a new interest in the diverse nature of the region. The Encyclopedia of Northern Kentucky is a direct product

of this movement. Michael Hammons, then director of Forward Quest, approached this encyclopedia’s coeditors in 2002 with the idea of compiling a comprehensive reference volume specifically tailored to highlighting Northern Kentucky’s economic, industrial and social culture. The Encyclopedia of Northern Kentucky celebrates the people, places and events of the border region’s rich heritage. The Encyclopedia of Northern Kentucky, published by the University Press of Kentucky, was edited by Paul A. Tenkotte and James C. Claypool. Tenkotte is chair and professor of the department of history and geography at Northern Kentucky University and former chair and professor of the department of history, international studies, and political science at Thomas More College, where he taught for 24 years. Claypool, professor emeritus of history at Northern Kentucky University, is the author or editor of nine books as well as numerous articles and book reviews.

‘Cool School’

When the students of St. Joseph Cold Spring, above, learned that fifth grade science teacher, Theresa Kaufmann, had won a contest for the Ultimate Cool School Science Day, they had no idea what the day would bring. Their eyes were opened to the world of science when Steve “Jake” Jacobs, consulting scientist to shows like Discovery Channel’s MYTHBUSTERS, took the floor. He challenged the students with mindbenders and demonstrations illustrating how much fun science can be and the importance of science literacy. The contest was sponsored by Siemens Foundation in an effort to invite more children to explore and enjoy science and math. Shown: Austin Schirmer, Brendan Luken, Lilia Traut, Maddie Kremer, and Courtney Schwalbach, have very little problem holding up their four pound weight.

Southgate sees unexpected growth, works to keep classes small in size By Amanda Joering Alley

With enrollment up more than 60 percent at Southgate Independent School, officials are working to keep class sizes down. The school is bringing in two modular classrooms to house some of the 244 students in preschool through eighth grade. Compared to the 150 students in the school last year, the increase means a lot to the school, said Superintendent Jim Palm. “It has been a very pleasant

surprise,” Palm said. “We have had a declining enrollment for the last eight years.” The modular classrooms, which are constructed off site and delivered to school, will be located at the end of the school’s baseball field, Palm said. Palm said the school board will soon be deciding what classes will be held in the modular classrooms. “I hope they are ready for use in the next few weeks,” Palm said. “I think they will be very useful and allow us to have smaller class sizes and more indi-

vidual attention.” A lot of the school’s new students have moved into the district because of the construction of the Canterbury House apartments on Moock Road. The apartments consist of 230 units, including 74 that are still vacant, meaning even more students may be attending Southgate school soon. Palm said at the board’s next meeting, which is at 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 12, they will be discussing bonding options for future school construction to deal with the growing enrollment.

Musical feeds audience a humor-horror tale By Chris Mayhew

Show information

With an appetite for audience laughter, the students in Campbell County High School Drama are rehearsing for their Nov. 7-8 performances of the Rock musical “Little Shop of Horrors.” Students will present two shows based on Roger Corman’s film about a floral assistant down on his luck who discovers a unique plant that develops a taste for human blood. Few will recognize Jacob Robertson, a senior of Alexandria, who will be the puppeteer making the costume of the man-eating plant the “Audrey II” come to life. Robertson will receive help from Justin Fornash, a sophomore, of Highland Heights, who will be the plant’s singing voice, and Luke Terhar, a senior, of Wilder, who will be the plant’s speaking voice. Robertson said even though his face won’t be seen, it’s a role he’s always wanted to play. “I guess the fact that it’s humorous and evil, and I guess the fact of the dark comedy aspect of it,” Robertson said of why the

Campbell County High School Drama’s presentation of Little Shop of Horrors, is based on the PG-13-rated film by Roger Corman and a screenplay by Charles Griffith. Show times will be at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 7 and 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 8. Tickets are $9 and are available through under the Kentucky link, at the door, or by calling 635-4611, ext. 1146 plant was a role he wanted to play. Robertson’s favorite scene is “Suppertime,” set to the song by the same name. Jordan Egan, a junior, of Alexandria, plays Seymour the floral assistant who finds the plant and nurtures it to adulthood. The musical is, especially enjoyable because of the doo-wop music, reminiscent of the 1950s, and the plants, Egan said. “It’s great fun, a really singable rock/pop kind of a sound,” said Joe Bertucci, drama teacher and the director of the musical. “We haven’t done a rock musical in a long time.”

Grayson launches kids’ Web site As part of the 2010 Civics Month celebration, Secretary of State Trey Grayson announced the launch of a new kids’ Web site which focuses on Kentucky and government. The site, gov/kids, is a resource for students across the commonwealth, particularly those who are currently studying about Kentucky in their classes. “As part of our effort to reach more citizens and get them actively engaged in their communities and government, we recognized the need for more online

resources for our young citizens,” Grayson said. “This site will allow children to learn more about our great state in a fun and interactive way.” The site includes information about Kentucky and its resources including history, geography and regions, important industries, and places to visit. In one section, students can learn about famous Kentuckians. In another section, students can learn about the importance of agriculture, coal, and other Kentucky resources to the common-

wealth’s economy. One section of the Web site is dedicated to Kentucky government so that students can learn how Kentucky’s laws are made. Here, students can learn about elected officials from the federal delegation, Kentucky’s constitutional officers, and local elected officials in addition to the framework of Kentucky’s law making process. With games, activities, and links to contests, there is also plenty of fun for students to have when they visit the site.

NEWS FROM NKU Partnership Project

Responding to recent measures of student performance in mathematics placing Kentucky among the lower quartile, documented deficiencies in teachers’ mathematical and pedagogical knowledge and relatively few opportunities for teachers to develop their expertise in these areas, faculty from the Northern Kentucky University departments of mathematics and statistics and teacher education have partnered with teachers and administrators in 12 Northern Kentucky school districts to create the Northern Kentucky Mathematics Specialists Project (NKMSP).

The three-year project, funded by a $575,000 Mathematics & Science Partnership grant from the Kentucky Department of Education, will provide opportunities for elementary and middle grades teachers to develop content and pedagogical expertise through rigorous, job-embedded professional development. Highlights of the project include: • Three-week summer institutes taught by teams of NKU faculty and acknowledged teacher leaders that provide participants with 12 graduate credits in mathematics content and pedagogy. • Collaborative action research projects addressing

recognized needs in each district and conducted by teams of teachers, administrators and NKU faculty. • Monthly collegial meetings during the academic year. • Quarterly planning and assessment meeting. Through 150 hours of professional development over a three-year period, NKMSP will enhance the knowledge and skill of 24 teachers in the 12 participating districts. These teachers, representing a regional cohort of mathematics specialists, will be prepared to impact student achievement in their own classroom and throughout their districts.

SCHOOL NOTES Tuition reimbursement awarded to Jones

Catholic Order of Foresters awarded $25,000 in tuition reimbursement to youth members attending Catholic school, kindergarten through high school. Madison Jones of Cold Spring was one of 100 winners selected in a random drawing who received a $250 award for the 2009-10 school year. A member of St. Joseph Court 2094, Madison, daughter of Roger and Judy Jones, attends St. Joseph School. The Catholic Order of Foresters annually awards more than $150,000 in scholarships, educational, and tuition assistance rewards.

St. Thomas School wins contest

The St. Thomas School in Ft. Thomas got a surprise this year - they received more than $61,000 of much-needed computer equipment, technology and software through Samsung's Four Seasons of Hope Education Contest. St. Thomas School is one of more than 270 schools across the country that have benefited from this annual contest which has provided more than $9 million in technology and software to

deserving schools. Samsung's 2009 National Tech in The Classroom survey showed 77 percent of Americans think the K-12 schools in their communities lack the technology access needed to help kids succeed in the 21st Century. Respondents to the survey further named technology teaching tools among the top three needs for companies to meet in local classrooms. Nominations are being accepted now for schools who will share in the more than $1 million in prizes of Samsung products, Microsoft software, Best Buy @15 Gift Cards, and cash grants from DirecTV.

Fundraiser idea sidestepped

The Campbell County School District Board of Education unanimously decided to table a request Oct. 12 from Campbell Ridge Elementary School to allow a fundraiser for the school’s music program. The school’s music teacher has raised $8,000 on her own for three years by

providing after school piano lessons, said Principal Anthony Mazzei. The school is seeking to buy $22,000 worth of keyboard equipment for the school’s Music in Education program, Mazzei said. The keyboard equipment allows a teacher to teach multiple students how to play at one time, he said. Board member Gary Combs said he would like the school to look at the possibility of applying for grant money before fundraising since the money would be used for an instructional purpose. The plan for the fundraiser was to ask parents and people in the community to buy a key for $10, and they would receive their name on a plaque once the keyboard system is purchased, Mazzei said. Mazzei said it would be voluntary for people to donate or choose not to. Board member Janis Winbigler said there is just an awareness on the board’s part to be careful of how often people are being asked for money through the school district. “We’re just trying to be conscientious of everyone we’re asking parents, and of going back to the same businesses.”

COLLEGE CORNER Division of Gateway to offer simulation

Workforce Solutions Division of Gateway Community and Technical College will be facilitating a Lean Manufacturing Simulation Nov. 4, 2009, which they are inviting all companies to register to attend. Lean manufacturing is a philosophy of the efficient use of resources, which when implemented, shorten

lead-time and decrease costs by eliminating non value-added waste. All simulation participants will perform roles in a simulated factory setting throughout several intensive production rounds, which will provide participants the opportunity to see, feel and measure the effects of different lean manufacturing principles. The lean simulation will help participants achieve an


understanding of the eight types of waste, the difference between a push-andpull manufacturing system, along with the impact it has upon a production line and finally, how to make effective use of employee time made available through waste reduction. The GCTC division of Workforce Solutions specializes in continuing employee training. The lean simulation will provide participants with new skills that will come in use in the manufacturing sector, or participants with ties to the manufacturing sector. Workforce Solutions invites all companies to attend Nov. 4, at 7:30 a.m. The event will take place at Receptions, located in Erlanger. For more information, please contact Barry Wilhite, Workforce Development Liaison, at 442-1145.

Mustangs clinch first playoff berth By James Weber

The Bishop Brossart football team scored 59 points all of last year. In one magical quarter, the Mustangs got more than half of that as they rallied to keep their season alive. A 31-point fourth quarter lifted the Mustangs to a 40-33 win over Dayton Oct. 24 at Newport Stadium. The win clinched a playoff spot for Brossart, the first in the team’s three-year varsity history. After going 0-20 its first two years, Brossart is 5-4 this season. “It’s the best game I’ve ever been a part of in my life,” Brossart head coach Matt Reinhart said. “I’ve never seen anything like it. It was just unreal. To be down 27-9 in the third quarter and turn around and score 31 points was just amazing. The kids believe in themselves and they knew they could do it. They kept fighting.” Brossart hosts BethelTate Oct. 30 to finish the regular season. The Mustangs will then play at Frankfort Nov. 6 or 7 in the playoffs. Dayton (1-8) will play at Carroll County Oct. 30 to finish its season. Timmy Butts scored four touchdowns for Brossart, the last three coming in the fourth quarter as Brossart rallied from an 18-point deficit. The game was a do-ordie scenario for both teams, as the winner would get the No. 4 seed in the district and the loser would be eliminated from the playoffs. Behind Butts, Brossart took a 9-0 lead in the second quarter. Ryan Morrison had a field goal. Dayton scored in the second period on a 30-yard TD pass from Patrick Schwierjohann to Connor Lewis. That set the stage for a dominant third quarter for the Greendevils. Derrick Buchanon had two TD runs, and Schwierjohann returned a pick for a score to give Dayton a 27-9 lead heading into the fourth period. In the fourth quarter, Jesse Orth threw a four-yard TD pass to Spencer Brown. Butts then scored his second touchdown to make it 27-24. Following a Chris Meehan fumble recovery, Morrison tied the game with a 36-yard field goal with seven minutes left in the game. Dayton responded as Buchanon scored his third TD of the game with three minutes to play to stake the Devils to a new lead. Following an 80-yard reception off a screen pass by Michael Whitford, Butts scored again and the PAT failed, making it 33-33.


John Schack of Bishop Brossart makes this two-point conversion catch to pull the Mustangs to within three points of Dayton in the fourth quarter. Dayton got the ball back, but Luke Dischar intercepted a pass to give the Mustangs a chance. Three plays later, Butts scored from 18 yards out with just 12 seconds left for the winning margin. Butts, a senior and part of the Brossart program since its inception, had 179 yards on the ground. “He ran hard,” Reinhart said. “Two times in the endzone he wouldn’t be denied, he just pushed his way in. One time he carried three guys from the five-yard line.” Reinhart said four seasons of adversity prepared his team for this moment. The program had a coaching change before even playing its first junior varsity game in 2006. The program lost its first 20 varsity games, then after a 3-0 start to this year the team was hit hard by illness. The team had to forfeit a game at Elizabethtown and had little practice before losing its district opener at Ludlow. “Everybody knows the history of this team,” Reinhart said. “These boys have been stricken with adversity form the beginning. This year, we get hit in the middle with swine flu. I’m proud that they came back and did something like that. Being down 27-9 is nothing for these guys.”

Simon Kenton 49, Campbell County 14

The Camels drop to 3-6, 1-4 in the 6A district. The Camels will play at Clark County to end their season as they are eliminated from playoff contention. Michael Kremer had one touchdown pass to Matt Smith in the first half, the only marker for the Camels as they trailed 42-7 at halftime. Jake Ritter threw a TD pass to Zach Lemons in the fourth quarter.

NewCath (4-5, 3-0 2A) clinched the top seed in the district and will host Carroll County in a first-round playoff game Nov. 6 or 7. This Friday, the ’Breds will play at rival Beechwood. NewCath rolled up a 280 lead in the second quarter and held on. Lloyd pulled within two scores twice in the second half, but the Breds responded by quickly marching down the field mostly on Kelly’s feet.

Brady Hightchew threw a 44-yard TD pass to Jake Cain, and Mike Froendhoff scored NCC’s final TD in the fourth quarter to put the game away. Brian Doyle and Phil Wagner had interceptions. Kelly also had 13 tackles, tied with Logan Martin for team leadership. Kelly ended the game with 1,346 yards and 19 TDs for the year.

Holy Cross 34, Newport 14

The Wildcats (2-7, 0-3) will be the fourth seed in the district and play at DeSales either Nov. 6 or 7. Newport

will close the regular season at Cooper Oct. 30. Demitri Brown rushed for a score and threw a TD pass to Brandon Carter. Brown rushed for 98 yards in the game as Newport had just 236 yards offense against the Indians.

Highlands 67, Scott 20

With running back Austin Collinsworth out with a thumb injury, the Bluebirds (9-0) used a balanced offensive attack to pile up the points against Scott (2-7). Zach Sowder passed for two touchdowns and ran for one to lead the Eagles. Eight different Bluebirds scored touchdowns. Highlands scored touchdowns on offense, defense, and special teams. Quarterback Will Bardo returned to action and rushed six times for 71 yards and two scores. The Bluebirds clinched the top seed for the Class 5A playoffs.

Beechwood 20, Bellevue 8

Bellevue (6-3) jumped out to an 8-0 lead on Ricky Buckler’s 60-yard first quarter touchdown run. In a game played in a muddy quagmire, both teams turned the ball over several times. Beechwood (6-3) capitalized the most on the turnovers. Quarterback Matt Rigdon ran for touchdowns of 71 and 85 yards in the second half to give Beechwood the comeback win. Bellevue came close to knocking off the defending district champs, but will have to settle for the district’s second seed. Bellevue faces Lloyd in the regular season finale. The offense will work on taking better care of the football as they prepare for postseason play. Despite the loss, it appears that Bellevue has closed the gap in Class 1A district play and will have a chance to avenge the loss if each team advances deep enough in the postseason.

Camels go down in regional soccer final By James Weber

Mark Hegyi challenged his Campbell County High School boys’ soccer team as it faced a 2-0 deficit against Covington Catholic. After CovCath dominated the first half, the challenge worked to a degree, as the Camels lost 2-1 to the Colonels in a 10th Region semifinal Oct. 21 at Campbell County. Campbell (8-8-1) lost to CovCath for the second straight year in that round. Before last year, the Camels had not won a postseason game in more than seven years. “I told them you can either pick it up right now and play to win, or just play not to lose by a big amount,” Hegyi said. “They knew they had 40 minutes left in their season if they didn’t turn things around. I’m proud of them; they did what they needed to do. We punched one in there; we just couldn’t get another one in there.” Brady Kennedy scored for Campbell in the second half off an assist from Colton Tanner. The Camels had lost 4-1 to the Colonels Sept. 15. Campbell got this far after beating Brossart 1-0 in the 19th District semifinals, avenging an earlier 3-0 loss. Campbell then lost to Highlands 3-1 in the district final. “We’re a young team,” Hegyi said. “We have younger players who can step up next year and fill

Newport Central Catholic employed a strong group of veterans, including three Division I college players, to reach the state semifinals last year in volleyball. A mostly new group of Thoroughbreds picked up where they left off, winning the 10th Region title Oct. 22 at Campbell County. In the regional final, NCC (20-12) beat the host Camels in a tense three-game thriller, 19-25, 25-20, 25-21. “It’s our fourth year in a row going to the state tournament,” said NCC head coach Vicki Fleissner. “I’m excited for them. They were in the shadow of those group of seniors for so long. They really took the opportunity they had and made the most of it.” NCC will play Apollo 3:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 30, in the first round of the state tournament at Northern Kentucky University’s Regents Hall. The next three rounds are Saturday.

NCC was able to pull out the win over a Camel team that had three seniors. “Campbell County was just as fired up as we were,” Fleissner said. “We had things to prove to people. We were the underdogs all year. We had to form our own identity and we had to show them who we were.”

Celebrate Halloween safety

Tips for making trick or treating a success

The Kentucky Crime Prevention Coalition would like wish everyone a safe and fun Halloween. In preparation for Halloween parties or trick-or-treating, we would like to extend some safety tips to ensure that your kids’ spooky night of activities is safe and enjoyable. • When preparing for a night of trick-or-treating, make sure

children are accompanied by an adult, and that older kids do not go out alone. Set a time limit, and plan a safe route, reminding children that it is not a good idea to take shortcuts or alleys, or cut through random backyards. • Children should remember not to eat any treats they collect until they get home, and the treats are inspected by an adult in a well lighted area. Remember, an unwrapped piece of candy could be harmful to you or others, so get rid of it right away in a safe man-

ner. • It is a good idea to ask your Neighborhood Watch group, or your local law enforcement or fire department’s personnel, to patrol the neighborhood during trick-ortreating hours. • Remember to move any objects from your yard or porch that might be a hazard to visitors, and welcome your trick-or-treaters by turning on your porch light, letting them know you are home and it is OK to go to their door for candy.

Ky. striving to improve breast cancer education Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women, aside from skin cancer. It is estimated that 192,370 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. In Kentucky, there were 3,624 reported cases in 2007, according to the most recent data from the Kentucky Cancer Registry. The widespread and pervasive nature of breast cancer means that most of us have been or will someday be touched by the disease. We owe it to our mothers, sisters, daughters, and ourselves to improve access to the resources needed to detect the disease early and to obtain proper treatment. In recognition of October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I would like to update you on Congress' work to improve breast cancer education and patient treatment options. In 2007, Congress reauthorized the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) through fiscal year 2012 to provide access to critical screening services for underserved women in the United States. Since 1991, the NBCCEDP has screened more than 2.9 million women and diagnosed more than 29,000 cases of breast cancer. We also passed a bill in 2007 to allow the U.S. Postal Service to continue issuing the special postal stamp that contributes funding for breast cancer research for another four years. Since its inception in 1998, the Breast Cancer Research Stamp alone has raised over $59.5 mil-

lion for research to improve detection, treatment and in pursuit of a cure. Although breast cancer in women under forty years of age is rare, it can be very aggressive and is less likely to be detected early. In an effort to give young women the tools they need to prevent and fight this disease, I am a co-sponsor of the Breast Cancer Education and Awareness Requires Learning Young (EARLY) Act (H.R. 1740). If it became law, the EARLY Act would implement a national education campaign to increase awareness in young women of the threats posed by breast cancer. In addition to helping young women identify the specific threats and warning signs of breast cancer that lead to early diagnosis, the legislation would also teach important prevention efforts that women can use to reduce their risks. One issue I hear about on a regular basis from constituents is insurance companies that only cover what is often referred to as a “drive-thru” mastectomy. I am a co-sponsor of the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act (H.R. 1691) to put this bad practice to an end by requiring health insurance plans to cover a minimum forty-eight-hour hospital stay for mastectomies, lumpectomies, and lymph node dissection for the treatment of cancer. Doctors and their patients should have the final say in how long a patient should be hospitalized following surgery.

For months, Congress has U.S. Rep. been debating the Geoff Davis right way to reform our health Community care system. The Recorder broad bipartisan guest support behind columnist the proposals described above demonstrates what can be done when we focus on commonsense solutions. To be successful, health care reform must increase choice, improve access and reduce cost. In addition, it must protect the doctor-patient relationship as the focal point for health care decisions. Another reform measure most Americans and their representatives in Congress agree on is preventing the denial of coverage for pre-existing conditions, like breast cancer. Today, there are approximately 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. With more efforts put toward education, early detection programs and health insurance reform, we can make sure the incidence of breast cancer decreases and the number of survivors continues to grow. As a husband and the father of four daughters, I am committed to continuing to support and champion legislation that will help those who are fighting this disease.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question

Should local governments consider consolidating services to save costs? If so, which services? “Consolidating services should be considered but money cannot be the only factor when determining whether services should or should not be merged. It is equally important that taxpayers are able to receive equally, if not more efficient, service.” J.H. “Local governments should consider consolidating, but only if there will be a ‘real’ savings/benefit to the entities involved over a long time. If it’s a band-aid fix, revising budgets might be the better alternative.” Florence “Yes! Consolidate as much as possible. Across department lines, municipality lines, county lines and state lines. Every time a consolidation is done, one chief officer

Many other duplications may also be saved. We have too many municipalities, school districts and duplication of services is prolific.” G.G. “I’m tempted to answer this question the way a certain candidate for high office answered Rick Warren’s question last year about when does life begin, regarding abortion: ‘Uh, yo, that’s above my paygrade.’ Still, the idea does have merit. Perhaps combining police and fire services could work, but you have to remember that it will result in some jobs lost; I don’t want to be responsible for anyone losing their livelihood.” Bill B.

Use caution when donating to charities As we get into the holiday season, many of us get many letters and phone calls requesting contributions to various worthwhile charitable organizations. Most charities receive a large portion of their donations between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Most charities do wonderful work for the needy and we are certainly fortunate to have so many people dedicated to serving others. However, there are always a few rotten apples in the charitable organization barrel that can spoil the entire process and give a bad name to the legitimate charities. Dishonest organizations are taking money away from the legitimate charities that are really trying to help people. In these challenging economic times, we all need to make wise choices in donating money. Some organizations that claim to be charities

may not be entirely forthcoming. It is important for people to take the time to make sure that whatever money or items they are donating will be used appropriately. Honest and legitimate organization will be willing to share pertinent information with potential givers. These organizations, like all of us, are suffering from the economy and will work with you. When charities contact you asking for donations, it is a good idea to ask that charity to provide written information about the organization to include the exact name of the organization, the organization’s purpose, and how much of each dollar is used for true charitable purposes. Some groups use names that sound like established charities in order to confuse potential donors. Givers should be wary of the following tactics that many fraud-

ulent organizations use: 1. High pressure calls and mail solicitations that emphasize emotional content, but contain little or no substance; 2. Charities that won’t send written material until you donate. Some may use the excuse that it is too costly or that there isn’t enough time; 3. Phone calls and letters telling people that they have won money or charitable prizes from a charity, but that you need to send in some money to collect the prize. Also some organizations may send letters stating that you have already pledged money to that organization. People shouldn’t send money unless they are 100 percent sure that they did indeed pledge money to the organization; 4. Callers who want to send someone over to pick up the contribution rather than it being sent

at a later time. Unfortunately many unscrupulous organizations tend to prey on our older citizens. Many older citizens tend to be more trusting and generous then the younger folks. We should all be careful to never give cash or credit card numbers to strangers posing as employees of charitable organizations. Checks should always be made payable only to the full name of the charity. If you feel you have been scammed by a fraudulent charity, you should contact your local police department to investigate the matter or come to the County Attorney’s Office to file criminal charges if you feel you have sufficient information. Criminal charges can be filed against fraudulent organizations claiming to be charities. Fraud involving $300.00 or more is a Class D Felony with pun-

Fifty years of free therapy The majority of the women in this picture are members of the 1959 graduating class of St. Henry High School, in Erlanger. Some have been together since the first grade, and they have had one or two “adoptees” who have fit in as if they were there from day one. For 50 years they have gathered monthly at one another’s homes and on a couple occasions a few have travel to Bloomington, Ind. and Pittsburgh, Pa. to have “club” with out of town members, although most still live in this area. They are often asked what kind of cards they play at this “club,” but this is not a club for card playing, said club member Jo Ann Bridley. They deal with more important issues, she said.

Through many years they have supported, rejoiced with and consoled each other in many aspects of their lives and those of their children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren, such as engagements, weddings, births, illness and death. Pictured left to right are: Dian Ankenbauer Froelicher, Jacque Terlau Kopser, Donna Pauly Good, Judy Thompson Powers, Margaret Moloney Robbins, Kathleen Eibes Brockman, Kathy Bowman Book, Joyce Tewes O’Hara, Jo Ann Schaeffer Bridley, Mary Kay Moloney Whalen, Betty Rassenfoss Koenig and Judy Terlau Wilson.

Deep in the stacks of record books that stretch from floor to ceiling in the Campbell County Clerk’s office in Newport are vestiges of when the county was still was the frontier. Locked away in a builtin metal cabinet are some of the oldest and most prominent records. It’s a cabinet Jack Snodgrass, clerk for 20 years, has only opened twice. There are still deeds signed by Kentucky’s most famous frontiersman, Daniel Boone, and prominent statesmen, Henry Clay. “We’ve got records where (Boone) once sold or bought 10 acres of ground for a keg of whiskey,” Snodgrass said. The 10 acres Boone sold are actually part of Boone County now, but back then, that was still part of Campbell County, he said. Boone and Kenton counties were later split from Campbell County. The clerk’s office is filled with empty boxes, as the staff prepares to move the a mountainous trove of records across town from the Newport courthouse to the new county administration building by Nov. 24. Currently, there are land records stuffed in every conceivable place including damp and leaky closets, Snodgrass said. Marriage licenses and property records alike date back to before the Civil War, Snodgrass said. The names on the first marriage on record with the clerk’s office was of George Larkin to Anna Thompson Sept. 10, 1855. “For genealogy enthusiasts, we have many records going back that can help form a family tree,” Snod-

There are also surveyor books including a book defining the first neighborhoods of Newport, and immigration books list the naturalization of new citizens in the county in the late 1800s. Many historical figures can be found in the clerk’s records. Patrick Henry, who famously said “Give me liberty, or give me death” in a speech about the prospect of going to war with England before the American Revolution, penned his signature to a land record on file in the clerk’s office. The document signed by Henry, as the first governor of Virginia, granted 500 acres in Campbell County to

A close-up of frontiersman Daniel Boone’s signature on a document from 1798 kept by the Campbell County Clerk in Newport. a Joseph Davis. A document from 1825 signed by Kentuckian Henry Clay, details the terms of an estate and the awarding of $1,950. Clay, known as “the Great Compromiser” was Speaker of the House and from 1811 to 1824, and was an unsuccessful candidate for the presidency in three elections and was author of the second Missouri Compromise. There are also land records from James Taylor Jr., who arrived in 1793 to

settle land in what is now Newport, owned by his father, Revolutionary War General James Taylor. A land sale signed by James Taylor from 1842 details the sale of 13 acres and 32 poles in the county. The language of the survey of the land is different than today’s records, Snodgrass said. “‘Beginning at the hickory and red oak tree,’ that’s how they measured,” he said, reading from the document.

Are there any saints around anymore? Nov. 1 is the day several Christian churches celebrate the feast of All Saints. “Saint,” a familiar word that’s taken on unfamiliar meanings. Today “saint” can be the name of a football team, a jazz song (”When the Saints Come Marching In”), many cities (St. Louis, St. Petersburg, etc.) or a goody-twoshoes. So we must ask, “What’s a saint?” A cynic might respond, “A saint is someone who lived a long time ago whose life has never been adequately researched.” The implication is that if you looked hard enough into a saint’s life, sooner or later you’d find he or she had clay feet. And a real saint would be the first to admit it. It’s only conventional wisdom that thinks they don’t. People labeled “saint” are put on a pedestal. Later, if any human

frailty shows up in their lives, we push them off their pedestal and bury them beneath the rubble of disappointment and disillusionment. Do this enough times, and we who push them down become cynical. We conclude there are no saints and no one worthy of a moral pedestal or imitation. Time and reflection, however, can clarify things. We understand better now what it means to be a saint. Every ordinary human personality can be depicted as having an inner teeter-totter. Piled on one end are the vices, selfishness, evil tendencies and darkness of that person’s life. Stacked on the other end are the brightness, virtues, love and compassion of which we are capable. The fulcrum, or center point, is the whole (holy) place represent-

ing the site of a person’s struggles and choices. Saints – as they live out their lives the best they can – strive to stand on the fulcrum in utter honesty and understanding of themselves. They don’t compare themselves to others. They don’t judge others against the measure of themselves. They just try to relate to others and the world in a way they believe their Maker created them to do. They struggle to know and then to discipline and control their darkness and vices – while they struggle to give expression to the light and love within them with the help of God’s grace. We must hide our dark side from society in general, but we must never try to hide it from ourselves. While doing good, we must acknowledge to ourselves our own demons as we do battle with them.

When we speak of sainthood today, we speak of it in its truest sense as a full-blooded embracing of our own humanity, not a false veneer of pseudo-goodness. Trying to appear better than we are prevents our becoming what we can be. When I was a youth I looked at saints in a very different way. Most of the canonized saints seemed to belong to religious orders, the clergy, or were people who wrought miracles and had followers. Today I imagine the saints to especially be among the humble and honest people, those who rise wearily and go off to ordinary and routine labor to support their families. They sacrifice creature comforts, narcissistic interests, and personal agendas in behalf of larger values. We do not usually accord these

common people hero or saint status, bur their acts renew the world each day as a place of enduring value. As Dr. James Hollis says, “We Father Lou are all, every Guntzelman day, faced with death, depresPerspectives sion and despair. Whoever rises to do what must be done, does a deed for us all.” Of such is the kingdom of heaven. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Reach him at columns@ or contact him directly at P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242. Please include a mailing address or fax number if you wish for him to respond.

Beware of the dinosaur hunter scam circulating Phony check scams are alive and well these days as scammers continue to try to steal your money. The latest deception preys on people who are trying to rent an apartment or house. Shelly Fast said she came across one such con at the Wilmington real estate office at which she works. She received an e-mail from someone seeking to rent a house. “He started to communicate back and forth with us but it was a strange communication. He didn’t want to come over and look at it, he rented it sight unseen,” she said. All the communications took place via e-mail. “We asked him to fill out a lease agreement and an application. That never happened. He went into great detail with stories that he was an Italian fossil

h u n t e r, ” said Fast. T h e person claimed to be a Prof e s s o r Klose who said he’s Howard Ain discovered of Hey Howard! lots dinosaurs and will be coming to the U.S. to trade fossils. “We started to get pretty suspicious when he said he was going to send a check for the first month rent, deposit and furniture for the four- to five-bedroom home he wanted to rent,” Fast said. He did send a check for $8,650 – but it was written on an AOL Time Warner bank account which didn’t make any sense. He asked Fast to cash it and send $2,900 to a furniture company for furniture

Clarification I have a clarification on my recent story involving Social Security Disability checks. Deductions from the benefits for food and shelter applies only to Supplemental Security Income disability and not Social Security disability. The difference between the two types of payments relates to those who have worked and contributed to Social Security and those who have not. People who paid into Social Security and then become disabled do not have to worry about their checks being reduced based on someone else helping them with food and housing expenses. They will receive their entire amount of back benefits in one payment. On the other hand, those who did not work or did not pay into Social Security will be eligible only for Supplemental Security Income (SSI), and that does reduce checks based on outside housing and food assistance. In addition, it often does pay the back benefits in increments. In all cases when applying for SSI or Social Security Disability be sure to contact an attorney with expertise in this field. he was renting. His wife and child were supposedly coming with him. “That is why he needed a large home and all that furniture. He kept mentioning a trustee in the U.S. would be in contact with us,

and we kept asking for the trustee’s name and information but never got anything,” she said. Fast said she wondered why he didn’t send a check to the furniture company himself instead of asking

her to do it. In addition, although he claimed to have been in Italy, the packing slip on the UPS envelope containing his check showed it was shipped from Massachusetts. “He was very strange responding to the e-mails. He didn’t answer questions that we asked him and we would respond with things he asked for and then he asked for the same thing over and over again,” Fast said. “I think in these tough times people are having now, some rentals are difficult to rent out and they get this information and they just want to rent their house and have some income. So, he’s preying on people,” she said. “When I Googled his name, and supposedly the place he was working for with the fossils, a lot of stuff

came up with ‘scammers.’ People are doing it using different names but the same scenario,” Fast said. The scammer recently sent another e-mail demanding the money and even claimed he would go to the FBI if he didn’t get it. Fast said she hopes this case can serve as a warning to all. If you receive a check from someone you don’t know who wants you to cash it and then send them money – don’t do it. Their check is probably not good and you’ll have sent your good money to the bad guys.

Too many apples? Make fruit leather

The sign was outside of a church on Salem Avenue in Mount Washington: “Friendship multiplies joy a n d divides sorrow.” So true. Friends can be many different people, comRita p l e t e l y Heikenfeld unrelated or someRita’s kitchen one biological. Think of the sibling who wasn’t cool enough to hang with as a kid, or the mom or dad who seemed older than dirt. (I remember one of my kids asking me if electricity was invented when I was young). As you grow, so does your wisdom and over the years, you become the closest of friends.

Apple or pear sauce and fruit rollups/leather

Every year I make batches of apple or pear sauce,

and rollups. No artificial anything added!

Monster Eye clarification


Wash, core and cut 3 to 5 pounds fruit into chunks (apples or pears). Leave skin on because the pectin in the peel helps remove cholesterol.

Cooking options:

Crockpot: Spray pot. Put fruit in. Cook on low six to eight hours or high for three to five hours until fruit is soft enough to mash. Stovetop: Place in heavy or nonstick large pot. Add up to 1 cup water, cider or apple juice (to keep fruit from sticking), and simmer until fruit is soft. You may have to add a bit more liquid. Careful - the mixture tends to sputter up. Oven: (my preferred method). I use a restaurant steam table pan but use anything that has sides and which will hold fruit. Spray

To purée:

Run through food mill or sieve, blender or food processor. If desired, sweeten to taste with sugar, Stevia or Splenda. Add cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice to taste. Do this while fruit is still warm.

Drying to make fruit rollups/leather:

Spray cookie sheets. Pour puree evenly onto sheets, about 1⁄4-inch deep. In summer, I’ll dry it in the sun. This time of year it’s the oven. Dry in warm oven. Mine only goes down to 170 degrees so I propped the door open. You don’t want it to cook too quickly or it will be hard.

DO YOU WANT TO BE SAVED? (A response to an article of the same title published September 9, 2009)

It is true that God has always demanded that His word go unchanged (Deuteronomy 4:2; Proverbs 30:6; Revelation 22:18-19). To alter it in any way is to sin. This would include taking one text, a partial text, or an idea and wrapping a teaching around it, while ignoring what the rest of God’s inspired word says. All of God’s Word is inspired (2 Timothy 3:16-17) and it is by this Word that we will be judged one day when we stand before God (John 12:48). This is an appointment that we must all keep. “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10). The Greek word for “must” in the above noted passed is “dei” which means, “it is necessary.” This same word appears numerous times in God’s word. Take for instance Acts 9:6 where Saul of Tarsus, trembling and astonished, says, “Lord, what do You want me to do?” Then the Lord said to him, “Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.” So what was it that Saul had to do? Well, let us jump ahead just for a moment. Notice that Paul (Saul) wrote too Timothy and said that he had “obtained mercy” and had received the “grace of our Lord by faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.” He also said that though he considered himself to be the chief of all sinners he, “obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life.” Now herein lies our current controversy. Many today would have you believe that belief is no more than a mental acknowledgment and acceptance of a fact. However, the inspired word here translated belief means, “to have faith in, to entrust one’s spiritual well-being to, to be committed to and put in trust with.” So the word belief includes action and obedience not merely a cognizant acceptance of a truth. So what was it that Saul had to do? Believe (have faith in)? Absolutely! “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6). He did this on the road to Damascus and by his willingness to do what the Lord commanded. So he was saved, right? No. Notice that Saul goes into the city of Damascus, blinded by the light, and is three days fasting. Was Saul a penitent man? Surely having been raised a very religious zealot he spent that time fasting and in prayer. So he was then saved right? Well notice that Christ sends Ananias to speak with Saul and in Saul’s own account in Acts 22:16, “And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.” You see Saul wasn’t saved. He still carried with him the stain and weight of his sin. Our friends who teach that all one has to do is believe run to the account of the Philippian Jailor in Acts 16:30-31, but notice they stop without looking at the following verses that say, “Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house. And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes. And immediately he and all his family were baptized.” Notice a few other verses: Acts 2:37-38 on the Day of Pentecost, Peter and the other disciples preaching the first gospel sermon were asked, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” Acts 8:12 when the people of Samaria, “believed Philip as he preached the things concerning the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, both men and women were baptized.” Acts 8:37-39 when Philip had preached Jesus to the Ethiopian Eunuch, “…they came to some water. And the eunuch said, “See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?” Then Philip said, “If you believe with all your heart, you may.” And he answered and said, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.” So he commanded the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he baptized him. Now when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught Philip away, so that the eunuch saw him no more; and he went on his way rejoicing.” You cannot find a single instance following the death, burial, resurrection and ascension of Christ where a single person is saved without being baptized! Notice a few other verses: Acts 10:48, “And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord.” Acts 18:8, “And Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his house; and many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and were baptized.” Acts 19:5, “When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.” 1 Corinthians 12:13, “For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body…” Galatians 3:27, “For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.” 1 Peter 3:21, “The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.” Friends, the answer to the question “What Must I Do To Be Saved” is simple. I must hear God’s word (Romans 10:17). I must believe in Christ as the only begotten Son (Hebrews 11:6). My newfound faith must lead me to repent of my sinful life (Luke 13:3). I must be willing to confess His name before men (Matthew 10:32-33). Then I must be immersed in water to have my sins washed away. At this point I come forth to live a new life, and I must continue to be obedient (Revelation 2:10) in order to be saved.

Feature of the Week

RAVENWOOD CASTLE: A MOST UNUSUAL GETAWAY Visit a “medieval castle” on a high hilltop on 115 secluded and forested acres of the most beautiful area of Southeast Ohiothe Hocking Hills! Owners Sue & Jim Maxwell are creating the most unusual guest experience of stepping back 800 years in a reconstruction of a “12th century Norman castle.” The Maxwells have traveled throughout England & Scotland & have always loved castles & the medieval era. Although the building is new, the couple has been collecting architectural antiques for several years. Each guest room or suite has a stained glass window, usually in the bedroom, a Victorian fireplace mantel with a gas log unit, antique light fixtures and some have beautiful old doors. The wood mouldings around the door & windows & the 5 stairways are inspired by centuries old motifs from Great Britain’s stately homes & castles. Most rooms also have a French door with a balcony, private deck overlooking the forest. There are also “medieval” themed cottages with fireplaces and whirlpools. Ravenwood has

its own food service for guests, so they can spend their entire visit immersed in solitude if they wish, surrounded by tall trees, huge rocks, the castle‘s own hiking trails and plenty of peace and quiet. Or guests can drive the few miles to outside attractions & other dramatic scenery in the Hocking Hills. Ravenwood offers popular “murder mystery” weekends and also plans “medieval dinners”, getaway workshops, and other special events. Facilities are also perfect for small weddings and other festive occasions. The building has no steps into the 1st floor level - a “drawbridge” leads from the driveway to the massive front door and the first floor guest rms. Nearby are caves, waterfalls, lots of hiking trails, a scenic railway, arts & crafts studios & shop, antique malls and much more. There are often midweek discounts and a special “Royal Family” Adventure Package in the summer.
