Schools celebrating high marks By Amy Scalf

Associate Superintendent Shelli Wilson discussed Campbell County Schools’ high-ranking test scores and national media recognition at the board's October meeting. AMY SCALF/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

ALEXANDRIA — Campbell County Schools have a lot to celebrate this year. Not only did the school system improve its state ranking, it was also listed among the top public high schools in the nation by Newsweek magazine. Associate Superintendent Shelli Wilson detailed the district’s achievements in a special presentation during the school board’s October meeting. Wilson said Campbell County Schools is only one of four

school districts in Kentucky to receive the highest assessment classification, Distinguished, this year, and is Northern Kentucky’s fourth-highest ranked school district, just behind Beechwood, Fort Thomas and Walton-Verona. Campbell County Schools’ statewide ranking rose by 7 percentile points, from 86th, and a classification of “proficient” in 2011-2012, to the 93rd percentile and a “distinguished/progressing” classification for 20122013, according to the Kentucky Department of Education. “What’s next?” said Wilson.

“We’re kind of thinking world recognition here.” “When you graduate from Campbell County High School you know that you’re prepared to go out there, whether it’s college or whether it’s in the workforce,” said board of educaton chairman Janis Winbigler. “We laughed when you said world recognition, but we very well may be headed there because we’re preparing all students and we’re looking at all areas.” Board member Rich Mason said many improvements came from the Kentucky Education Reform Act, passed in 1990.

“There’s no doubt in my mind that Kentucky schools are better than they were 23 years ago, I don’t have any doubt about that, and there’s no doubt in my mind that Campbell County schools have made tremendous progress in that 23 years,” he said. “I always knew that we had good schools, but we don’t have any problem at all pointing it out and proving it to everybody.” The state report card overall scores were 61.4 last year and 64.4 this year, which means the district exceeded its annual See SCHOOLS, Page A2

Extension center adds demonstration kitchen By Chris Mayhew




There’s no need to lean over a boiling pot to see the action in a cooking class now at the University of Kentucky’s Campbell County Cooperative Extension Service. A ceiling-mounted camera, and two cameras mounted on either side of a kitchen counter top and stove, give people a view of what a cook is doing

Campbell County has offered a 40 percent payroll tax incentive in a bid to bring XPO Logistics Inc. with 175 jobs to Newport. If XPO moves to Newport, the company will be the fifth company in the Campbell County Jobs Development Program that began in October 2011. The county’s incentive to compaHorine nies to expand, or open an office, rather than relocate in the county is a 40 percent payroll refund for 10 years for each job created. Lucy Peterson, a spokeswoman for XPO Logistics, said she can confirm Newport is one of a number of locations in the Midwest the company is considering. “A final decision has not been made,” Peterson said. Campbell County is offering the payroll tax incentive for 88 of the 175 XPO jobs, said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine. The 88 jobs are expected to be filled by people living outside of Kentucky. The remainder of the 175 jobs have already been accepted into a state incentive program because the jobs will be filled by Kentucky residents, Horine said. “We’re hoping the company makes a final determination

that they’re going to come here sometime in November,” he said. Not counting the potential XPO jobs, the county’s jobs development program has been credited with helping to create at least 160 jobs, Horine said. The county’s estimate is conservative, and there is a good chance of more than160 jobs being created through the end of this year, he said. The county will know the exact number of jobs created since the start of the program after the payroll taxes are collected for the year. The way the program works: companies pays the total payroll tax owed for each worker, and the county then refunds 40 percent for each job created within the incentive program, he said. The first entrant into the program in October 2011 was RWI Transportation in Wilder. The company expanded and planned to add 150 new jobs over a five-year period. BM2 Freight Services was the second company into the program in December 2011, and created 16 jobs, and is projected to add 34 more by 2016. They are in the Cold Spring Business Park off of U.S. 27 at Ripple Creek Drive. The third and fourth companies into the program, P.L. Marketing Inc. and Harlow-HRK Sales and Marketing, established a headquarters together in Newport and created 77 jobs. Horine said the county tracks how many new jobs were created by the companies each year at tax time. Vol. 17 No. 27 © 2013 The Community Recorder ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

The first cooking class in the kitchen was for Plate It Up Oct. 16, which showed people how to make recipes using Kentucky Proud brand recipes. Rex said she and other extension service agents have been out talking to people to find partners and bring chefs to the demonstration kitchen. There is a plan to show different food topics in the kitchen. Many cooking classes will focus on nutrition and meals people can make quickly and easily, Rex said. “Especially for families that just struggle to get meals on the table,” she said. “It’s just giving them some easy recipes.” The extension service’s monthly Mommy and Me class will also use the kitchen, she said. The next session of the class will start in February. The class is for children ages 6-8 and their mom, dad, grandparent or guardian, Rex said.

The point of the class is to help young children learn how to help their parents make simple meals and work together in the kitchen – even if a person has limited cooking skills. “They actually go out and garden and grow their food, their vegetables and fruits, and we use that throughout the eightmonth class and we make yummy recipes,” Rex said. Rhonda Griffith of Alexandria brought her 12year-old granddaughter Alexandra Reynolds to the Plate It Up session, and attended the Mommy and Me cooking class this year, and the new kitchen is an improvement. People used to crowd around the cook in an attempt to see at cooking classes. Now the cameras made it easier to see, Griffith said. “We could sit here and actually watch what she was doing with her hands,” she said.

She said that in the 2010-2011 school year, Campbell County had 140 students in advanced classes, a number which increased to 403 in 20112012 and again rose to 504 in 2012-2013. The number of exams taken increased almost four-fold during the same time span, going from 214 exams in 20102011 to 795 in 2012-2013. On those tests, she said students also received higher scores, with 68 stu-

Jewelry store keeps name in new location By Amy Scalf

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS — Several things have changed at Fort Thomas Jewelers since the nearly 20-year-old business relocated in August, but the name and the service provided are still the same. Store manager Kim Sunday admits there was “a little confusion,” but she’s glad the business stuck with the name people know. “We kicked around a change when we moved, but we didn’t want anyone to think we went out of business,” she said. “We’re proud to be Fort Thomas Jewelers of Highland Heights.” The store’s grand opening will be 1-5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, featuring an official ribbon-cutting, giveaways, raffles, food and refreshments. The store has already been

open for business for two months at 2780 Alexandria Way, a little loop off Alexandria Pike. The Highland Pointe Plaza parking lot entrance is behind the store. For more directions or information, call 859-4420506. “We love the traffic going by and the customers coming here, who have braved the parking lot,” she said. “We hated to leave Fort Thomas, but sometimes, things are just meant to work out the way they do.” Jerry Glenn of Southgate has been a Fort Thomas Jewelers customer for more than a decade, and he said a little more distance hasn’t stopped him from coming in. “It’s a little farther away from home for me, but it’s worth coming back,” he said. Sunday said the new store features state-of-the-art displays and equipment.

Store manager Kim Sunday said Fort Thomas Jewelers’ “Create” bar is only one piece of the state-of-the-art technology featured at the new location in Highland Heights. AMY SCALF/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

Besides the new, more elevated and interactive jewelry cases, she said the store has ad-

vanced 3-D printing technology to grow and carve waxes, which is part of the jewelry casting

process. “When you walk in, you can see it’s different because of the eye-level displays. You don’t have to bend over to look at anything, and at the ‘Create’ bar, customers can touch and feel the jewelry without a sales associate. They can really create exactly what they want,” said Sunday. “We still offer repairs while you wait, and you can even watch on television upclose while they’re doing each step of the jewelry repair. We’re one of the only jewelers around who create and repair jewelry and don’t just sell it.” There’s also a new coffee bar for customers, and Sunday said she doesn’t expect the business to move again any time soon. “We signed a 10-year lease here,” she said. “So, we’ll be here at least that long.”

2Cellos joining Ky. Symphony By Stephanie Salmons

FLORENCE — For the second time in less than a year, the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra has scored an international first – another United States orchestral debut of an internationally known duo. Award-winning and classically-trained Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, known as 2Cellos, will perform with the KSO 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, at Flor-

ence Baptist Church at Mt. Zion, 642 Mt. Zion Road, Florence. KSO music director James Cassidy said the duo is “very hot internationally.” According to the 2Cellos website, the pair achieved success “taking the cello to a new level and breaking the boundaries between different genres of music.” Their cello version of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” went viral and lead to a record deal and an invitation to

join Elton John’s worldwide tour. Since then, 2Cellos has appeared on shows including “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Ellen Degeneres Show.” The duo was also the first instrumental act to perform on “Glee.” “Being the first orchestra in America to showcase the incredible talents of these performers, who have taken musical crossover or ‘genre bending’ to new heights, is a real coup,” Cassidy said in an announcement. This will be one of 19 concert stops on the pair’s three-week United States tour and the only concert with an orchestra. In a phone conversation, Cassidy said the orchestra will play some classical pieces with the pair before “we just turn the stage over.” It’s much

like getting two shows, he said. The KSO also hosted Igudesman and Joo in April for that duo’s U.S. orchestral debut. Having recently opened its 22nd season, the KSO has a “long string of firsts, premiers and a completely unique approach to programming throughout its 21 years,” the release reads. “For me, you can be a ‘me too’ guy and follow the crowd and wait (until) everyone else does it, or you can do it first,” Cassidy said. “I don’t know about everyone else. I’ve just never been a ‘me too’ guy.” The KSO’s mission, he said, is to make symphonic music “attractive, accessible and affordable.” It’s a mission they’ve never given up, said Cassidy. “Don’t think symphony

when you’re coming to this one,” he said of the upcoming 2Cellos performance. “Even though you’ll get some of that, that’s not what you’re hearing. You’re hearing a couple of big-time people for the first time with an orchestra in the U.S. You’re seeing a premier.”

With a fireplace and comfy chairs in the corner, Smith wants to create a cozy spot for customers to savor doughnuts, cakes, cookies, cupcakes and other scrumptious specialties.

Alternatives to juvenile lockup sought Campbell Co. launches program to deal with ‘status offenders’ Gannett News Service NEWPORT — Kentucky has been notorious for locking up children for incidents that are not illegal if committed by an adult. Campbell County wants to fix that. Officials there – who have struggled with high lockup rates for years – will meet Tuesday to discuss a pilot program to find alternatives. It is one of only three such programs in the state. “Kentucky has not had the best grade in the world ... when it comes to detaining juveniles,” Campbell District Judge Karen Thomas said. “We are doing a lot better, but we are still not where we need to be.” Keith Bales, who was tapped to lead the Campbell County program, said officials picked the county, in part, because of Thomas’ longtime commitment to find alternatives to locking up status offenders. They are kids who, if adults, would not be considered criminals. Their offenses are usually behavioral or mental health issues, or acts like truancy and substance abuse. Ohio has similar programs in Cuyahoga, Franklin, Lucas, Montgomery and Summit counties, according to the Annie E. Casey Foundation, a Maryland-based charity

dedicated to helping disadvantaged youth. The foundation approached Kentucky officials and offered technical assistance and resources to help develop the alternatives, said Thomas. In exchange, Kentucky agreed to hire three coordinators to run the pilot programs, called the Juvenile Detention Alternative Initiative. The other two pilots are in Louisville and Lexington. “Oftentimes there is a mindset that getting tough on crime is the solution,” Bales said. “It is the ‘scared straight’ mindset. Research shows the opposite. The more you can work with kids in a community-based setting, the chances are better they will not end up in the adult


system.” The first step will be for foundation employees to analyze Campbell County’s juvenile justice system, Thomas said. The foundation has not started collecting that data. Thomas said she hopes to see intervention options so status offenders are never brought to the regional juvenile detention center in Newport. Children brought in for minor infractions such as skipping school can sometimes find themselves detained with children who have committed violent crimes – even murder. “Studies are pretty clear ... that once you get a kid into the system, they never leave it,” she said. “It is very difficult to break out of that mold.” Thomas said it makes sense because once a child is in the juvenile court system their life is under a microscope.

fund more alternative programs as it locks up fewer children. The cost to detain a juvenile is about $125 per day, but it can be as high as $164 if the child has special needs, according to state officials. “The bottom line is that the majority of individuals in any criminal justice system will ultimately be out in the community,” Bales said. “It is in our best interest to use research-based practices in order to help them be productive citizens.

The state Department of Juvenile Justice has money for such alternatives, but it’s only available for children who are already locked up. Sometimes a child can be in a detention center for two weeks before they can be placed in an alternative program. “That’s a problem,” Thomas said. “They are already in there.

Brossart edges Camels again in postseason By Adam Turer

For the second straight year, Bishop Brossart High School’s girls’ soccer team captured the 37th District and 10th Region championship. For the second straight year, the Mustangs defeated Campbell County High School in each championship match. The Camels finished their season with a1-0 loss to the ‘Stangs on Oct. 26 at Harrison County. Bishop Brossart advanced to

the Sweet 16 in the state, where it drew defending state champion Lexington Tates Creek in the first round of the state tournament. That match was played on Oct. 29, after Recorder deadlines. “We hope that it sets a standard of expectation,” said Brossart head coach Brad Gough of winning consecutive regional titles. “Winning a regional title is not an easy task no matter where you play, but we feel that we have the quality in our program to do so more often than

not.” The Mustangs entered the state tournament after dominating the competition for over a month. Bishop Brossart won nine straight matches, all of them shutouts. The last time the team allowed a goal was also the last time it lost, losing to Newport Central Catholic, 1-0, on Sept. 18.

NEWPORT — Alyssa Maier didn’t want to lose her final district championship match and home game to a fierce rival. Maier and the rest of the Newport Central Catholic High School volleyball team made sure that didn’t happen, sweeping rival Highlands 25-6, 25-19, 25-17 Oct. 23 in the 36th District championship match. The tourney was played at NewCath. “It feels amazing,” Maier said. “We worked so hard for it. I’m just happy everything came out how we planned it. We worked as a team and accomplished what we have been working for all season.” Maier, a senior setter, posted 26 assists, three kills and three blocks and was tournament most valuable player. Freshman Rachel McDonald had 10 kills and five digs. Junior Keyaira Lankheit had seven kills and four blocks. Senior Nikki Kiernan had four kills and two blocks, and senior Madison Volk recorded six digs. Lankheit and McDonald were also all-tourney picks. The Thoroughbreds avenged a loss to the Bluebirds in last year’s district final. “I thought we played well,” said head coach Vicki Fleissner. “We came out and played hard. Last year’s loss to them in the district finals was still in the back of our minds. We wanted to come out and make a statement and I think we did, then we stepped back a little

bit like we shouldn’t but we were able to piece it together and fight on through.” NCC is 14-14 overall but went into the Ninth Region Tournament filled with confidence. “It was a big win for us,” Fleissner said. “We play a tough schedule to get us ready for this part of the season and this is when we have to peak and show what we’re made of.” Maier, a veteran setter, is a senior with Volk, Kiernan, Molly Mertle and Abbie Lukens. “Our communication was a big part,” Maier said. “We’ve been struggling with it from day one, and we pulled through together and worked hard as a team. I’m really proud of everyone. We click together, we know everyone’s next move. We feel so comfortable together.” While Fleissner will miss her five seniors next year, NCC has a strong core to build around up front with all-tourney hitters Lankheit and McDonald. “Alyssa runs the show. She gets the ball to our hitters,” Fleissner said. “Rachel has been consistent like that all year as a freshman, a lot to look forward to the next three years. Keyaira came out like a ball of fire against Bellevue (in the semifinals); it was amazing to watch and she has come so far. She has come a long way. She has a lot of upside in her game.” Follow James on Twitter @RecorderWeber

first 20 matches, posting 14 shutouts. Five of the goals allowed came in two of the first three matches of the season. Bishop Brossart entered the contest with Tates Creek at 17-3. Last year’s state tournament experience showed Brossart that it is one of the top programs in the state. “We learned that we belong at this stage of the tournament,” said Gough. “This is where we deserve to be and we hope that we can prove we deserve to go further.” Campbell County finished the season with a mark of 15-6-2, setting a record for most wins in a season in program history. The record-setting season was even more impressive considering the level of competition the

Playing some of the top teams in the state in the early season Bluegrass Cup hosted by Oldham County helped prepare the Camels for tough local competition. Starting with its final two matches in the Bluegrass Cup on Aug. 24, the Camels reeled off a stretch of 90-1soccer, before losing in a regular season shootout to Brossart on Sept. 25. “We exceeded my expectations in overall record with the most wins in school history against the toughest schedule we have ever had that included five of the sweet 16 teams,” said Campbell County head coach Dave Morris. Brossart has now defeated Campbell County in six straight matches over the past two seasons, including four times in the postseason. Every match has been closely contested, which is to be

expected when these rivals square off. “Campbell County always has a quality team that is willing to fight it out until the end,” Gough said. “That, coupled with the fact that so many of the girls know each other and have personal relationships, makes everyone play tightly and will make it tough for either team to really beat the other handily.” The ‘Stangs’ style of play, predicated on possession and tempo control, has proved to be frustrating for the Camels’ more aggressive offensive attack. The Camels managed just seven shots on goal in the 10th Region final. “We lost to an excellent team in Brossart,” said Morris. “We did our best playing hard to the last moment, so I have no regrets. I am very proud of what the team accomplished.”

Now, they are eager to take the next step. “Last year’s seniors did a really good job of bringing along the younger players and passing on their experience,” said Gough. “I really expected us to be even more successful this year because our current seniors have the experience from last year added into all of the talent that they already possessed.” If the ‘Stangs can upset Tates Creek (19-4-3) at home on Oct. 29, they will face the winner of Letcher County Central-Lawrence County on Nov. 2 at Lafayette.

Are you ready for harvest time


Fifteen survivors led Northern Kentucky University's Relay for Life on Oct. 18. The campus event included 410 participants on 28 teams who raised $20,800 Ð more than eight times last year's total Ð for the American Cancer Society. NKU’s College of Health Professionals, led by Jackie Marsala and Erin Robinson, was the top fundraising team with $3,700. Matthew Warner raised $700 and was the event's top individual fundraiser. Sponsors for the event included Kroger, Kangaroo Kidz, Flash Cube Photo Booths and Pepsi. THANKS TO JODI DUNAVAN

State needs to start picking the low hanging job fruit first Kentucky and Ohio have many things in common, good and bad. Unfortunately, we share two drags on prosperity – prevailing wages and the absence of right to work laws. When we begin talking about various laws, even as an attorney, my eyes can glaze over. However, I perk up when we talk about honorable common ground, such as jobs for working families. Prevailing wage reform and right to work occupy this ground. Right to work simply means an employee may decide whether or not to pay money to a union. Michigan economist Mark Perry crunched the numbers and found that right to work states recently created four times as many new jobs as non right to work states. Economic development experts at Tri-Ed, working in the trenches, know we’ve lost out on opportunities. Unless and until states stop competing with one another, we must accept this economic reality. Advanced manufacturers with better paying jobs, who tend to like right to work, decide where they will do business, not us. I represent a client which will expand into Tennessee or Indiana because these neighboring states have right to work laws. We

chose not to change; now they’re choosing to do business with the people who did. When this happens (and when it does, not many people know about it), workers here lose. Rob Hudson With prevailing wages, our federal and COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST state governments COLUMNIST mandate high wages on most governmentfunded infrastructure projects. Projects cost more (estimates range from 10 percent to 30 percent) and fewer can be funded, which of course means we have fewer people working on construction projects. Our desire to provide an opportunity for a new construction worker should be as strong as the desire to pay some people more, but that’s not how it went “back in the day.” Prevailing wages started in 1931 under Herbert Hoover, a president not exactly known for visionary leadership. It’s not like we haven’t thought before about making it right. In the 1970s, the U.S. Government Accountability Office published a prevailing wage report suggesting that prevailing

wages should be repealed because they slow us down. On right to work, the issue would be hard to miss. If you look at a map of the many states which have already made the change, we’re beginning to look like an island unto ourselves. Advanced manufacturing companies have seen this map. Other states revel in using it against us. Only one thing prevents us from making these changes. Unions don’t agree with them. I respect their opinions, but they represent fewer than 7 percent of company workers. Noisy protests and political donations aside, a better choice would be to help the unemployed and the other 93 percent of workers. It’s hard to operate in a political fog, but it can be done. Come closer. Can you see the low hanging job fruit for unemployed workers who want a chance to succeed? It’s been right there, in front of our faces, all along. Let’s reach through the fog and pick it for them. Rob Hudson is an attorney and partner with Frost Brown Todd LLC in Florence and the author of a business and political book “A Better Tomorrow.”

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Libraries have support

Either Ken Moellman is naive or he thinks all Campbell Countians were born yesterday regarding how much we value our libraries. His continuous complaints about the library board and our library system show a deep suspicion perhaps bordering paranoia with its obvious aim to cripple a cultural asset. If Ken hasn’t gotten the message by now, libraries are more than repositories

of published information. They provide community centers where people can come together to collect and exchange information that they may not have access to otherwise. So don’t attack our kids’ LEGO contests. Ken makes it appear that he and his associates have been overly kind and considerate toward the library board; and in return have been unfairly rebuffed. Well just as much as their legal beagles have tenaciously pursued the library board,



A publication of

the board has properly and understandably responded like a mother bear or hockey mom by protecting a valued and long-standing institution. We’re tired of Ken’s theatrics. Campbell County has a great library system with a lot of people supporting it. I invite him and his buddies to help Alexandria (Ken’s neighborhood) get a branch – long overdue.

Can you smell it in the air? Can you see it on the trees? Do you feel it when you walk out of the door in the morning? Harvest time is certainly here. I realize that the vast majority of us do not consider ourselves farmers, therefore when we think of the word harvest, the word moon may come to mind before the word labor. Yet if we Julie House were to apply the COMMUNITY principles of what a RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST harvest really means, we might come to realize if we labor today, a beautiful harvest awaits tomorrow. A true harvest is a time to enjoy the fruits of all your labor. A time to look back on all your hard work, thank God for what He has provided, and spend time resting in Him and begin to thank Him for His plans for you and your family in the coming months. In our schooling this year we are studying biblical feasts. The Jewish people understand principles behind the word harvest. The new year for the Jewish people actually begins in the fall. Although we follow a solar calendar, the Jews still follow the lunar calendar and Rosh Hashanah, (this year the celebration began on Sept. 4,) announces their new year, and is a time set aside for reflection and preparation. How special to begin a new year as you are “feasting” on all the ways God has supplied for you and your family. To reflect on the passing year, repent, and make a commitment to live a better life, a life more fully dedicated to God and His will for you and your family. During our study of Rosh Hashanah it was recommended that we simulate as many of the activities of the feast as were doable for our family. When planning one meal and the activities surrounding it seemed overwhelming, it was clear to me that our priorities have become a little jaded over the years. When praying more than a short blessing over the food felt awkward and uncomfortable, and remaining at the dinner table for more than 10 minutes seemed like more than a chore than an event, I realized the “world” had even invaded our dinner table. It’s going to take some work to transform our family. But that’s OK. I am reminded by Paul that my work is never in vain. “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:58 I am ready for a harvest aren’t you? Ready to cozy up with God’s promises, surround myself with those I love and thank God for all He has done for me, and all that He plans to do in the future. I think I can do that for a few months, how about you? Julie House is a former resident of Campbell County.

Stir-fry uses last of summer’s bell peppers As I look out my office window, I can see the vegetable garden and the pumpkin patch next to it. The garden is completely finished, not a veggie to be seen. I did pick one last big bunch of Rita zinnias, Heikenfeld marigolds RITA’S KITCHEN and cosmos from the cutting flower row for the kitchen table and was able to save seeds for next year. We still have a good amount of bell peppers, which I used for one of my favorite chicken stirfries.

Sweet and spicy chicken and veggie stir-fry Amazingly, exotic items like sambal oelek and fish sauce used to be hard to find. Now just about every grocery store carries these. Sambal olelek is a spicy condiment found in the international aisle. Ditto with the fish sauce. I usually stir in more sambal oelek after the stir-fry is done. Feel free to use your favorite vegetables in here. 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into bite size pieces and set aside 12 oz. bag fresh stir-fry vegetables or 8 oz. sugar snap peas 1 red bell pepper, sliced

Sauce Combine and set aside: 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar 2 tablespoons soy sauce 1 tablespoon fish sauce 1 tablespoon rice vinegar 1 tablespoon sambal oelek 1 tablespoon sesame oil 3 ⁄4 teaspoon cornstarch

For garnish Sliced green onions Dry roasted peanuts

Film a pan with oil and stir-fry chicken several minutes until golden brown and done. Don’t overcook. Remove and set aside. Add a bit more oil and stir-fry veggies for several minutes until crisp tender. Stir in brown sugar mixture; cook a minute until thickened. Stir in chicken and toss to coat. Serve with sesame rice. Serves 3-4.

Sesame rice

Cook your favorite rice and stir in sesame oil and soy sauce to taste. Not too much!

Dinner in a dash: Ravioli with sautéed butternut squash and thyme I love butternut squash. It’s chock full of phytonutrients and antioxidants and is delicious in both sweet and savory dishes. Butternut squash is a bear to try to cut through and peel. What I like to do is poke it all over with a fork, microwave it on high for just a few minutes, use mitts to

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Chicken safety: To wash or not. Here’s my take on it: Do not wash chicken. You’ll be splashing more bacteria over the surface of the sink, counter and yourself. No need to worry about bacteria in chicken when it’s cooked to a safe degree. The USDA says to cook a whole chicken to 165 degrees; parts to 165 degrees and ground to 165 degrees. Your visual here is to have the juices

run clear when poked with a fork. For ground chicken, it will be thoroughly cooked with no pink spots.

Safely seasoning raw chicken

Before handling the chicken, mix the seasonings in a little bowl. Discard the leftover seasoning.

St. Elizabeth opens heart valve center


Frank and Jacquie Knapp of Covington announce the engagement of their daughter, Brittaney Alizabeth, to Joseph Weber, son of Gary and Becky Weber of Cincinnati. Brittaney is a graduate of Covington Latin School and Thomas More College. She is attending graduate school at Northern Kentucky University and is expected to graduate in December 2013. Brittaney is currently employed in Human Resources at Perfetti Van Melle. Joe is a graduate of LaSalle High School and graduated magna cum laude from Thomas More College. He is a teacher at Newport Central Catholic High School. Brittaney is the granddaughter of Jack and Jane Armstrong, Florence. The wedding is planned for June 6, 2015 at St. Mary’s Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption, Covington, Kentucky.

ry and Victor Schmelzer, the center will use a multispecialty, team-based approach to the diagnosis and treatment options for aortic stenosis. The team features cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, anesthesiologists, and a patient navigator. “This is the beginning of a new era in cardiology where we are going less and less invasive in trying to manage heart valve disease (both aortic and mitral) in a minimally invasive fashion,” said Schmelzer. “We strive to provide optimal management to these patients and that’s best achieved in a center where the surgeons and cardiologists are together in one place to assess patients and review the echocardiogram, angiogram and cath lab findings.” Until recently, patients with severe aortic stenosis had only one real option for treatment – open heart surgery. If the patient was too sick or too frail for that highly traumatic surgery, the diagnosis could often end up being a slow death sentence. “Patients will have a one-stop shop, where they will have full assessments by a cardiologist and surgeon and a better understanding of their individual management plan,” added Khoury.

GET THE High School




Northern Kentucky retirees, stay-at-home parents and recent college graduates looking to add professional experience to their resumes are being sought to fill new parttime AmeriCorps positions starting tomorrow. Participants will be asked to contribute 900 hours through next August, or about 20 hours a week, said Beth Andriacco, AmeriCorps projects coordinator for the Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission. That organization helps low income individuals and families in eight Northern Kentucky counties develop the knowledge, opportunities and resources they need to achieve self reliance. The Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission has received a grant to offer AmeriCorps’ MoneyCorps program focusing on financial literacy at its community centers. Volunteers will be trained before teaching financial literacy classes and counseling individuals and families on everything from how to buy a home to how to establish credit and develop a budget. Volunteers also will help customers file their federal and state taxes through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program. In exchange for their public service, AmeriCorps members will receive a $5,000 stipend distributed bi-weekly to help cover living expenses. They also could receive a $2,775 educational award to help pay off college loans or apply toward future schooling after they complete their service. Volunteers who are 55 and older when they begin their service also can apply the educational award from the National Service Trust to a previous student loan, or they can pass it on to a child, grandchild or foster child. The educational award must be used within 10 years. Five of the MoneyCorps positions are in Kenton County, and there are two in each of the remaining eight counties served by the Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission: Boone, Campbell, Carroll, Gallatin, Grant, Owen and Pendleton. The Community Action Commission is attempting to recruit volunteers through meetings of the Safety Net Alliance, a collaborative of social service agencies and churches, senior centers and institutions of higher learning.

HOW TO APPLY » For information on AmeriCorps’ MoneyCorps program in Northern Kentucky, call Beth Andriacco at 859655-2946 or email her at » To apply online, go to and choose MoneyCorps as the program you’re applying for.



Two offer support to Senior Services of Northern Kentucky

Senior Services of Northern Kentucky is receiving support from the Kentucky Colonels and the John A. Schroth Family Charitable Trust. These two community benefactors support agency’s vision of helping older adults in Northern Kentucky Live Well. Age Well. The John A. Schroth Family Charitable Trust, PNC Bank, trustee, granted $20,000 in support of Senior Services of Northern Kentucky’s Four Core programs including transportation, nutrition, ombudsman and protective services and senior activity centers in the eight Northern Kentucky counties the agency serves. The $15,000 granted by the Kentucky Colonels will help fund a handicapped accessible van for older adult transportation to wellness appointments. Additional funds are being sought to match this gift. While grants such as these are so very helpful to Senior Services of Northern Kentucky, there is always a need for more support. To make a donation to help support programs and services to seniors, contact Senior Services of Northern Kentucky at 859-292-7953 or email

Health dept. offering flu shots Last year’s flu season was a reminder of how unpredictable flu can be. In Northern Kentucky, 3,492 cases were reported, with eight deaths, making it the busiest season in the recent past. As this year’s flu season begins, the Northern Kentucky Health Department is reminding residents to protect themselves with a flu vaccination. “When it comes to flu vaccine this year, you’ve got plenty of options,” said Dr. Lynne M. Saddler, district director of health. “Certain flu vaccines can now protect against four strains of the virus, rather than the three previously offered. High-dose vaccines are available for seniors’ added protection. Even those who are allergic to eggs can find an egg-free vaccine this year. Anyone who is 6 months or older should seek out a flu vaccine this fall.” The Health Department will offer a limited number of doses of flu vaccine by appointment at its four county health centers: » Boone County Health Center, 7505 Burlington Pike, Florence; 859-3632060 » Campbell County Health Center, 1098 Monmouth St., Newport; 859431-1704 » Grant County Health Center, 234 Barnes Road, Williamstown; 859-8245074

» Kenton County Health Center, 2002 Madison Ave., Covington; 859431-3345 “The health department is just one of countless providers who offer flu vaccine each year,” said Saddler. “Employers, pharmacies and private physicians are all out there vaccinating residents for flu. Flu vaccines cause antibodies to develop in the body about two weeks after they are administered. These antibodies provide protection against infection with the viruses that are in the vaccine. This year, the health department will administer flu shots which protect against four strains of the virus, rather than three strains as in prior years. Cost is $20, but no one will be turned away for inabil-

ity to pay. Some may have the fees reduced and even eliminated through either a federal program providing vaccines to children or for individuals covered by Medicaid. “Don’t let the winter months sneak up on you without finding a source for the vaccine,” said Saddler. “We need to get a flu vaccine each year for two reasons: first, the vaccine protects us against the viruses most likely to spread in the upcoming season, and second, a person’s immunity from vaccination can decline over time. A vaccine each year boosts that immunity back up, and provides the best possible protection.” For more information on the flu, go to

The holiday season is rapidly approaching. With some advanced planning and purchasing you can decrease the stress usually experienced. ConsidDiane er the Mason following EXTENSION tips you NOTES might use now to help de-stress the holiday meals and events. Plan your menus. Take time now to write down what you will serve for upcoming holiday events. If you’ll be participating in or hosting a potluck, plan what you will contribute to that event. Make a plan for every event you know. You may be able to use the same recipe for several events or purchase items in bulk to help cut costs and time at the grocery. If you will be serving the entire meal, make the plan and pull together any recipes that might be needed. Noth-

ing can add stress like not finding the favorite cake recipe when you want to prepare it. Start buying nonperishable foods and supplies. Stocking up a little at a time will help decrease your stress. It also will help lessen the blow to your wallet. Practice any recipes that might be new to you. It is better to practice a recipe than to have a failure in the kitchen at the last minute. Make room in the refrigerator and freezer. Start using and clearing items from the appliance so there is plenty of room for holiday foods and leftovers. In fact, it would be an ideal time to take everything out of the freezer and refrigerator to give it a good cleaning. Then, take inventory as you return the good items to the appliance and discard those that are beyond their prime. Who knows, you just might find an ingredient to use in your upcoming meal plan. Decide what decorations, dishes, and entertainment will be

used. Gather materials if possible. Make a list of items you need to purchase. Keep the list with you. When shopping, look for the products on sale and purchase them for your upcoming events. Don’t forget to cross items off the list as they are obtained. Make arrangements to borrow tables and chairs if needed. Or, be creative and use boards and sawhorses or other items that might be around your house. As the big events draw closer, pull out and wash the larger pots or dishes you’ll need. Cleaning them in advance makes the day of the event less stressful. A bit of planning now may help you enjoy the holiday season even more.

Halloween beetles and stink bugs invading homes wings) are approximately 5⁄8-inch long with a mottled brown-gray body. The next to last (fourth) segment of each antenna has a white band. Edges of the abdominal segments that extend laterally from under the wings are alternatively banded with black and white. The underside of the body is white to light gray with gray or black markings, and the legs are brown with faint white bands. The BMSB ultimately can pose problems for all Kentuckians, similar to that of the multicolored (orange and black) Asian lady beetle, or Halloween Beetle, a familiar fall sight in many homes and buildings. Adults are attracted to homes and structures in the fall as they move to protected overwintering sites. Large numbers may enter through cracks and crevices. These insects produce a stain and unpleasant order when smashed. They will leave protected sites in the spring to resume their life cycle, feeding on the

Question: Why are there so many ladybugs and other larger brownish-gray bugs coming into my house this year? How can I stop their invasion into my home? AnMike swer: The Klahr larger HORTICULTURE bugs are CONCERNS probably the brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB), a new pest of households, gardens and orchards. The BMSB, native to China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan, was first collected in Allentown, Penn., in 1998. Today, it is an agricultural pest as well as a household nuisance in about two dozen states, including Kentucky, arriving in Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties just last year. These bugs have the same characteristic shield-shaped stink bug body found on the common green or brown stink bugs often found in gardens. The adults (with

sap of a wide range of plants including fruits, vegetables, ornamentals, and some field crops. Significant fruit and vegetable losses to the insect have been reported from apple and peach orchards, blackberry, field and sweet corn, tomatoes, lima beans, and green peppers. Vacuuming up the bugs inside the home is the best solution once they have entered. Mechanical exclusion is the best method to keep stink bugs from coming into the home. Cracks around windows, doors, siding, utility pipes, behind chimneys, and underneath the wood fascia and other openings should be sealed with good quality silicone or silicone-latex caulk.Homeowner products containing the active ingredients deltamethrin, cyfluthrin, lambda-cyhalothrin, cypermethrin, or permethrin are options for use outside the house.
