Pendery helping lobby for sales tax to fund projects By Chris Mayhew

WILDER — Campbell County Judge-executive Steve Pendery told city leaders he is part of group lobbying for the right to go to voters with funding requests for expensive special projects because state money isn’t coming. “I expect that might be a generation of tight belts in Frankfort, and we’re going to be left to our own devices increasingly,” Pendery said at a quarterly meeting with mayors and city administrators

Oct. 29 in Wilder. Pendery said he has part of the Metropolitan Alliance for Growth, with other members from Louisville, Lexington, Bowling Green, Owensboro, Elizabethtown and Boone and Kenton counties. Traditionally, Kentucky has been a state run by rural interests, and urban areas need to advocate for their needs, he said. “... The urbanized areas are the only place in the state that are actually producing any growth,” he said. Pendery, as part of the Growth Alliance, is supporting

the Kentucky League of Cities top legislative priority for the 2014 state general assembly – to permit local option sales tax for large regional projects. “So, the idea of this local option sales tax is that the voters in a particular area can decide to impose a tax for a certain period of time that gets sunsetted when the job is done,” he said. Local option sales taxes are permitted in 38 states now, Pendery said. Louisville and Lexington might make more See TAX, Page A2

Salute to Veterans has traction with modelers By Chris Mayhew

FORT THOMAS — Hobbyists will bring their scaled down models of tanks, armored cars and soldiers to the city’s full size Salute to Veterans weekend Nov. 9-10. The city’s sixth salute, organized by Fort Thomas Renaissance and the Fort Thomas Military and Community Museum, will be inside the Mess Hall Community Center & Banquet Facility in Tower Park at 801 Cochran St. It will also feature military re-enactors in World War II era uniforms, displays from military history and veterans organizations, and the singing of patriotic songs by students.

Dick Schauerte of Deerfield Township, Ohio, a member of the Sixth Scale Collectors Club of Ohio, said he will bring at least three models of military vehicles used by Nazi Germany during World War II. Schauerte, a former captain in the U.S. Army Reserve, said he started out collecting models of American, Japanese, German and British soldiers from World War II. Learning to build models of tanks and other military vehicles came later, and the collection grew. He said he decided to specialize in German and American, and then only on German military, after realizing his collection was growing too large. He plans to bring a World War II era Panther tank, ar-

mored car, and a Marder III M tank destroyer to the salute. Scott Celender of Reading, Ohio, another member of the Sixth Scale Collectors, said the Fort Thomas show is one of the biggest shows for the model group because it draws a crowd beyond the scope of people interested in model making. The group’s featured display this year will be a Hall of Armor showing models of military armor of U.S., British and German design from different years, Celender said. There will also be a display of a scene built from scratch of a U.S. Calvary unit and Western town, he said. “The modeler, he handmade See VETERANS, Page A2

Vets and pets help each other thanks to new nonprofit By Amy Scalf

INDEPENDENCE — April Deeds knows pets can help veterans recover from post-traumatic stress disorder, because she’s seen it work with her husband, Sam, a retired Marine who served in Afghanistan. She wants other veterans to have the same comfort, so she has started an organization to help them get pets of their own, and at the same time, they’ll be rescuing shelter animals from imminent death. Abandoned Pets For Wounded Vets, online at and on the group’s Facebook page, is the first step toward letting the veterans and the shelter animals help each other. The nonprofit is organized under Paws and Claws Animal Rescue in Hebron, run by animal trainer Angie More. Deeds said up to 4 million pets are euthanized each year, and more than 8,000 veterans a year commit suicide. “We hope to team the two up and reduce those statistics dramatically,” she said. Now she needs sponsors and donations so there is no cost to the veterans. “There’s nowhere nearby that does anything like this, until now,

but veterans all over the world could use this kind of help,” said Deeds. “You don’t see the wounds from post-traumatic stress disorder that veterans have, so they don’t think they need a therapy dog. But I see the way our dogs go around Sam, and they do help. They sense how he’s feeling and crowd around him. They do calm him.” According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, online at, “Some people with post-traumatic stress disorder find that service dogs or emotional support dogs help them manage PTSD symptoms.”

use of a local option sales tax than Northern Kentucky. Regions or counties are not eligible under Kentucky law to approve their own local option sales taxes, and funding for major projects usually has to come from the state, he said. “I wanted to explain that because you’re liable to see my name and some other names associated with something that smells faintly like a tax increase,” Pendery said. “And therefore, you need to hear the other side of the story.” Pendery also spoke with the mayors about issues ranging from heroin to how the state divides cell phone fees to fund 911 centers to distributes state road funding. Pendery said each of his topics revolved around funding from the state, and Northern Kentucky has issues that need solving. “We’ve got big problems that need to be solved at every turn,” he said. Pendery pointed to the meeting’s agenda and a handout of the KLC’s legislative agenda. “Pick anything on the list here, the heroin thing, we get a couple million less than our fair share for treatment, which would finance 200 treatment beds,” he said. “And the road funds, same things. Pick anything that we deal with here, we’re trying to

Starnes said the position of superintendent is very important. “You have the ability to shape the staff into a family,” he said. “That’s what we are. We are a unified district and worth together for a common cause to

back fill because the state takes the money and spends it someplace else.” Pendery said one concern was how the state will spend any increase to the Commercial Radio Services fee of 70 cents per month charged to cell phone customers. Raising the fee is the No. 2 KLC legislative priority for 2014. “Don’t we have to be fearful that the money would be diverted around the state as it is currently, and so it’s not going to all find it’s way to us,” Pendery asked. Dale Edmondson, director of Campbell County Consolidated Dispatch, said the radio services fee formula divides 50 percent of the cell phone fee equally between all counties, so a rural county like Gallatin County gets the same amount as Campbell County. Another 20 percent of the cell phone fee goes back to the companies that supply the service to improve service, and the remaining 30 percent is tied to the number of cell phones registered to a locality, he said. For Campbell County, not all cell phones in use by people in the area are registered in Kentucky, he said. Some counties in rural counties end up getting in excess of $1 per cell phone registered in the county from the 70 cent fee, Edmondson said. “Here in Campbell County we think we get about 40 cents, so we do a little better than some, Edmondson said. For some, though, the top priority is the Brent Spence

the leather saddles,” Celender said. “It’s going to be a tribute to the calvary.” The aim of the Sixth Scale Collectors is to not use kits, he said. “Sixth scale collecting is about a love of modeling,” Celender said. “The thing about it is we start from nothing.” Celender, a police officer for Green Township, Ohio, said the best part of going to events and showing off his models is getting to talk to veterans. Celender said he met a

Bridge State Rep. Joe Fischer, RFort Thomas, said the bridge remains a top priority for him in the 2014 legislative session and he came to the meeting to hear the concerns and needs from local officials. Fischer said he wanted to know the position of individual cities on the idea of tolls, and he saw a study showing there will be a big diversion of traffic to Interstate 471bridge from Interstate 75 if there are tolls created on a new Brent Spence Bridge. “It would add like 30,000 vehicles per day to the 471 bridge, that puts us at well over 100,000, and certainly that will impact traffic here in Campbell County,” Fischer said. “I don’t know how you all feel about that, but I have a problem with that.” Pendery said studies have shown there will be an initial diversion of traffic away from the Brent Spence at the $2 per vehicle toll level, but people will also find diverting to I-471 will cost travel time. “You realize people are already paying a toll, essentially, because you’re sitting in traffic for a half hour or 40 minutes or at rush hour and you’re idling away $4 a gallon gasoline,” he said. Pendery said people in Northern Kentucky are against tolls, and it is hoped they can be avoided. “If there’s a way to avoid it we want that to happen, but we first want a bridge,” he said. “That would be my personal position.”

Celender said he asked the man what ship he was aboard, and the man said the U.S.S. Randolph – an aircraft carrier. Celender said he looked up information about the U.S.S. Randolph later that night. “The U.S.S. Randolph was kamikazed on the way back from Midway,” he said. Celender said one of the best part of making models is finding out the history surrounding them. “The biggest thing is paying tribute to the veterans,” Celender said. “That’s the most important thing.”

Campbell Co. seniors explore college, careers By Amy Scalf

ALEXANDRIA — Thanks to Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson, Campbell County High School’s seniors took a step toward their futures on Tuesday, Oct. 29, without even leaving their school. Abramson started his

“Close the Deal” initiative in 2009, when he served as Louisville’s mayor, and has been adding more schools each year to the program, which brings students together with college admissions representatives, financial aid counselors and community business partners. More than 360 students

were in the Campbell County High School gym to learn more about their future opportunities. The event included Northern Kentucky businesses, such as Mazak manufacturing, as well as the U.S. National Guard and the U.S. Navy, in addition to the Art Institute of Cincinnati, Bellarmine

Kentucky college or university,” said McDermott. He said the FAFSA is the government form that determines a student’s financial need, and it’s the only route to getting federal and state grants or loans to pay for school. The form requires 2013 tax information for the student’s parents or guardians, but McDermott said they can estimate income by using a W-2, their 2012 tax information or their last pay stub of 2013, which should include cumulative income and taxes withheld. “It has to be done early in January,” he said.

A representative from the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority, Robert McDermott, had plain and clear advice for the students: to check on their existing scholarship awards, and to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, called the FAFSA, as soon as possible after Jan. 1. “Many students already have Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship money that has built up over four years of high school grades and test scores, so that money is already there for them, just waiting for them to go to a

Many of the students said they had ideas and plans for what to do after high school, but knew less about how they would pay for it and how much it would cost. “It’s a little easier now that I know the amount of debt isn’t going to kill me,” said Nicholas Pollitt, who said he wants to go into the aviation industry or, maybe, manufacturing. “The biggest thing I learned today is about financial aid, to keep my grade point average up

Check your smoke alarm batteries

The Campbell County Office of Emergency Management wants people to remember to test their smoke alarms or detectors monthly, and to change the batteries whenever they change their clocks. The end of Daylight Saving Time is 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 3, and clocks needing to be manually adjusted to fall back one hour earlier. The process of setting clocks back adds an hour to Sunday. William R. Turner, director of the county’s emergency management office, issued a news release Oct. 31 reminding people of the slogan “Change your Clock – Change your Battery.” People need to make sure the battery on their smoke detector has adequate power to operate,

said Turner in the release. When people change the time on their clock’s it’s a good time to check their smoke detector as well, he said. “If your detector is 10years-old or older, it should be replaced,” Turner said. “Remember, properly working smoke alarms can save lives.”

Newport rededicates displaced Veteran memorial Gannett News Service

Before Newport Pavilion emerged, a neighborhood known as Cote Brilliante was demolished to make way for development. Now, a treasured remnant of that neighborhood is about to return. A memorial to seven soldiers from the neighborhood who died in World War II was rescued from the site and will be rededicated on Veterans Day, Monday, Nov. 11, at Pavilion Parkway and Chesapeake Avenue. The refurbished memorial will stand on a corner that has been dressed up for its arrival, complete

with an American flag and benches – just across the street from its original site. For 60 years, the bronzed plaque recessed in masonry stood on a marble base outside St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church, which was also bulldozed for development. The treasure vanished from the landscape in 2005, as houses were being knocked down for the development along Interstate 471. An elderly man who’d revered it took it from its site. “He basically stole it,” said Tom Guidugli, executive director of Newport’s




RE-DEDICATION OF WORLD WAR II MONUMENT When: 9 a.m. Veterans Day Nov. 11 Where: Corner of Pavilion Parkway and Chesapeake Avenue, Newport What: WWII monument from Cote Brilliante neighborhood has been re-set and refurbished. Who: Family of soldiers listed on the monument and the general public are invited to attend.

Neighborhood Foundations, who has led the effort to refurbish and rededicate the memorial. But Guidugli said the man, in his 80s at the time, had good intentions and even cleaned the plaque while

he had it. When word got out in the community that the plaque was missing, Guidugli, then mayor of Newport, received a call from a member of the gentleman’s family and re-

trieved it. “He was scared to death,” Guidugli said. Of course, he wasn’t given a hassle. Guidugli recovered the memorial, and it stayed in a Newport City Hall storage room as city staff planned for its resurrection, In the summer of 2007, construction began on the Newport Pavilion shopping center. Guidugli worked with the developers to secure a location for the memorial and collected donations to help pay for the plaque to be refurbished.

Kroger, Target and Ashley Associates, an investor and the leasing/ management group for Newport Pavilion, donated funds toward the cause, he said. The memorial will be rededicated at 9 a.m. Nov. 11. “It was originally dedicated in 1946,” said City Manager Tom Fromme. City staff have located family members of nearly every soldier whose name is on the plaque. They are invited to the rededication, as is the general public. “I’m tickled that this is happening,” said Betty Hughes, 84, of Villa Hills. “I was glad it’s coming back. It belongs here.” Her older brother, Frank Benning Jr., was 21 when he was killed in Japan, she said. She was about 15 and living with her family on Chesapeake Avenue. Their house was among those demolished to make way for Newport Pavilion. ”Our house is a big expressway pillar,” Hughs said. “It was just so sad.” Tim Rolf, owner of Rolf Monument in Newport, has housed the memorial for the last few years.

Floor raising for women in manufacturing The Workforce Solutions and Innovation Division of Gateway Community and Technical College has launched Raise the Floor, an initiative designed to promote manufacturing careers to women and to prepare them for stable, highly paid, high performance production jobs. Raise the Floor has two primary goals: to help women improve their economic well-being and increase the pipeline of skilled workers, in this case women, to ease the current and projected manufacturing labor shortage. “We are delighted to announce this new initiative that joins our existing efforts to promote manufacturing careers to high school students, displaced workers, and veterans,” said Ed Hughes, Gateway president/ CEO. “We now have recruitment efforts aimed at four of the five worker populations identified by the Northern Kentucky Industrial Partnership, and we are working to develop

A Raise the Floor pilot program is currently under way with a small group of women from other Gateway programs who are involved in an introductory class. The training portion formally kicks off in January when a group of 10 to 15 women are expected to take the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council’s Certified Production Technician class. This four-credit-hour

Gateway course ends in May and includes four assessments. When students pass all four assessments, they receive the nationally recognized Certified Production Technician certification. Beginning in March, women may enroll in the Mechatronics and Machining Career Pathways to be employment ready by May 15. One company has already asked to interview all of the candidates for its apprenticeship program, which provides full-time employment and full tuition benefit for those wanting to pursue an associate degree. “The Raise the Floor initiative is a shot in the arm for our extensive manufacturing pipeline efforts,” Hughes said. “We are very grateful to the United Way, which has co-sponsored this effort, Partners for a Competitive Workforce, and all of the 26 women who so generously volunteered their time to develop this dynamic new initiative.”

Relentless Camels volleyball has depth, drive to win By Adam Turer

See CAMELS, Page A9


Editor: Melanie Laughman,, 513-248-7573


ALEXANDRIA — For the secondstraight season, Campbell County High School’s volleyball team advanced to the state tournament. This year, it took some come-frombehind heroics to clinch a secondstraight 10th Region title. The Camels rallied from two sets down to defeat Scott in five sets. Campbell County was down 13-7 in the fifth set before surging ahead for a 15-13 win to clinch the regional championship. “This team reminds me of last year’s team by never giving up,” said head coach Kim Nemcek. “Last year’s team was just the same way; they fought back.” Late-season adversity helped prepare the Camels for postseason play. Junior outside hitter Kirby Seiter was injured for three of four straight games lost by Campbell County in early October. Despite missing one of their best players and leaders, the Camels fought hard, weathered the losses, and bounced back quickly. The stretch also created opportunities for the Camels’ bench players to step up. “During our four-game losing stretch, I learned that our girls were fighters,” said Nemcek. “I learned that the girls were not going to give up even without a starting player on the floor and they were mentally tough. I also learned that I had more depth on my bench.” By defeating Scott, the Camels earned a rematch with Notre Dame. The Pandas defeated the Camels in straight sets on Oct. 2, the first of Campbell County’s four-

Newport rivals both play at home By James Weber

CAMPBELL COUNTY — City rivals Newport High School and Newport Central Catholic High School will stay at home for the first round of the Class 2A playoffs. Newport will host Carroll County 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8, at Newport Stadium. Because the Wildcats earned the second seed in District 6 this year, the Thoroughbreds will play on Saturday afternoon, hosting Owen County at 1 p.m. at Newport Stadium. NewCath is 6-4, winning its last five games, including a 34-31 thriller over rival Beechwood Nov. 1. Senior John Caudill kicked a 26-yard field goal with 12 seconds left to atone for missing a 30-yard attempt with 6:09 remaining. Mac Franzen threw for 184 yards and a touchdown. Jacob Smith rushed for 93 yards and a score. Franzen has throw for 1,537 yards and 17 TDs, while Smith leads the rushing attack with 601 yards and eight scores. NewCath, the defending state champions, would appear to be a heavy favorite over the fourth seed Rebels, who have averaged12 points a game and allowed 36. Newport (5-5) is sporting a three-game winning streak and hosts Carroll County (5-5). The teams have two common opponents. WaltonVerona has beaten Newport 48-13 and Carroll 48-21. Pendleton County has a 21-6 defeat to the Wildcats and a 44-11 defeat to Carroll.

The teams are on opposite sides of the Region 3 bracket. NewCath would host WaltonVerona or Lloyd Memorial with a win. Newport would host Holy Cross or travel to Gallatin County. Seeds determine the third round site, and the city rivals would travel to the state semifinals. In 6A, Campbell County goes in on a four-game winning streak as the Camels host Pleasure Ridge Park from Louisville 7:30 p.m. Friday. The Camels finished with a 44-0 win over Holy Cross. Alex Howard rushed for 113 yards and a touchdown. Avery Wood threw for 100 yards and three scores. Campbell continued its strong defense for the year with its first shutout of the season. Campbell has allowed 19 points per game on defense, but more than half of that came in lopsided defeats to high-powered local rivals Highlands (50-8) and Simon Kenton (55-35). PRP is 4-6, averaging 24 points per game. Campbell, the two seed in District 6, would travel to Louisville Butler or host Ryle with a win. In 1A, Bellevue hosts Eminence in the opener for the second straight year. The Tigers rolled 48-8 in last year’s playoffs. Eminence is 6-4 this year, averaging 196 yards on the ground and 95 in the air. Bellevue was off last week and enters the playoffs with its potent passing offense which has set several team records.

PRESS PREPS HIGHLIGHTS Brossart, 14-11. “I thought they had a player or two that made the difference,” Brossart coach Brad Gough said. “Other than that, I didn’t think there was too much difference overall between the teams. Abby Stadtmiller showed tonight that she was one of the best players on the field with all those college players out there for them.”

straight losses. Nemcek expects her team to enter this contest with a more urgent mindset than they brought to the regular season matchup. “This week we are working on hitting around a big block and covering on defense,” said Nemcek. “We are working being mentally ready to fight. I think the thing that sets our team apart is that we are fighters and my girls will not go down without a fight.” With only 16 teams remaining in the state, it is a bit unusual that the only two from northern Kentucky face each other in the first round of the state tournament. Whoever emerges victorious will be

representing the area. “Honestly, I’m not a fan of two northern Kentucky schools getting the draw to play each other, with some of the best volleyball being from this area,” said Nemcek, “but you will have to face each other eventually and we know that NDA will come out strong.” The experience gained in last year’s state tournament should prove valuable for the Camels when they take on Notre Dame on Friday, Nov. 8. This year’s squad resembles last year’s team that advanced to the elite eight before being eliminated. But, this edition of Camels volleyball has more depth and the teamwork has developed over the course of the season. “Like last year, our serving is our strength,” said Nemcek. “What is different is that we have

more options to distribute the ball and I believe our defense and serve receive is stronger this year than last year. You can have the best hitters in the world but without a pass they can’t do anything.” No matter what happens this weekend, the Camels have asserted themselves as one of the premier programs in the region and in the state. Back-to-back state appearances in Nemcek’s first two seasons at the helm prove that the program is in great hands. “Going to state two years in a row means that we are building a successful program here at CCHS,” said Nemcek. “It shows how Campbell County has some of the best athletes around and with hard work they can achieve anything.”

Backup quarterback Beau Hoge threw for 417 yards and four touchdowns, two to Jenson Feggins. Starter Drew Houliston sat the entire game. Highlands’ potent offense comes in averaging 52 points per game, including 70-plus in three of its last four games. To kick off the playoff season, Highlands will welcome Boyd County (1-9) at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Nov. 8, to the Class 4A Russell Athletic/KHSAA Common-

wealth Gridiron Bowl.

Bishop Brossart slayed the giant Saturday, ending St. Henry’s 11-year run as regional boys’ cross country champion with its first title in12 years at the Class A, Region 4 meet at Sherman Elementary School in Dry Ridge. “That was pretty good. We’ve been trying every year to catch them, and we just kept plugging away,” Mustangs coach Rob Braun said. “These kids didn’t know anything other than St. Henry winning until today.” Braun earned his first regional crown as coach. He took over the Mustangs in 2004, three years after Bishop Brossart’s threeyear run as champion ended in 2001. The Crusaders had won every year beginning in 2002. Bishop Brossart senior Michael Caldwell took the 5-kilometer race in 16 minutes and 1.8 seconds, and the Mustangs accrued 40 points to sweep the smallschool individual and team crowns. Bishop Brossart put four runners in the top 10, all under 18 minutes. Junior Chris Loos finished fifth with a time of 17:18.9. Sophomore Adam Hartig placed ninth and junior Nick Schuler was 10th. “When I was a freshman, I thought we had a chance to eventually beat them,” Caldwell said of the Crusaders. “I didn’t have any more chances after this year, and I told the guys they had to help me out, and everybody came through. It’s a pretty awesome feeling.” The Brossart girls team finished second to St. Hen-

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Cleanup experience teaches lessons

On Oct. 12, 2013, the congregation and friends of the Beaver Lick Christian Church came together to pick up trash along Boone County highways. What started out as a dirty job, turned into a real learning experience. Not only did we help make our community look better, but it also gave us a better idea of how trash and litter affects our lives and the lives of our neighbors. We picked up paper, plastic cups, fast-food wrappers, even an old telephone. There were old tires and wheels, just about anything you can imagine. The real surprise came when we finished and looked back at the area we had cleaned up. Everyone thought it was great to look and see what a difference we had made. When we got back to the church and discussed what we had accomplished, we found another bonus had come from the experience. Everyone thought that the experience was a friendship builder and gave them a great team spirit. If you and your organization ever feel the need to do your

Armor is needed to win struggles in everyday life My husband can attest to the fact that I have a hard time dressing appropriately for cold weather. I will put off pulling out my winter coat until the bitter end. As for a hat, forget it. Therefore, when the temperature begins to fall, I walk around and suffer the fate of being uncomfortable Julie House and cold when simply putting COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST on the right COLUMNIST clothes for protection and comfort could save me. The same is true for dressing appropriately for the battles in life. Referred to as “The Whole Armor of God,” in the Bible, Ephesians 6:13-18, defines what person must wear to “withstand in the evil day” Ephesians 6:13. In other words, what we need to survive in the day to day. Most of us think we know what we need; a little prayer in the morning and at bedtime, and church once a week. That should be more than sufficient for success. Although correct, we are leaving ourselves wide open for the “fiery darts of the wicked one,” (pain, suffering, mental anguish) when we aren’t fully protected with the “whole armor.” The Bible lists six very important pieces of armor we need to “take up” in order to stand and win in everyday life. How protected are you? Before you left the house this morning, did you strap on your “belt of truth?’ (vs. 13) Did you take time to read God’s word to remind yourself of His truths and plans for your life?

Did you put on your “breastplate of righteousness?” (vs.14) As a child of God, you are righteous in His eyes, did you look yourself in the mirror this morning and allow Him to remind you of that before walking out the door? How about your “boots of peace,” (vs. 15) are you wearing them? Before, frustration and bitterness strike, did you allow the peace of God to plant your firm on the ground today? Did you remember your “shield of faith?” (vs. 16) It’s the protection of your faith in Christ that will allow you to “quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.” Do you need to quench the negativity around you? And how about protection for you head; did you put on your “helmet of salvation?” (vs. 17) Did you leave the house without reminding yourself of who you are in Christ Jesus? Did you remember that it is He who fights for you? And finally, did you pack the “sword of the Spirit?” (vs. 17) Do you have a word from God planted in your heart and on your mind that you can pull from at any given moment for nourishment and support? Just as we can open the closet and pull out the fall/ winter jackets for protection and comfort, we can open the Bible and pull out the precious promises of Christ. Promises that will protect, offer comfort and provide lasting peace. Open your Bible and pull yours out today!

Remembering and honoring their sacrifice “In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.” – Mark Twain We are blessed with choices. Where to eat, where to shop, what to watch on television, where we go for our family vacation, and where we worship. America is founded on the principle of freedom, justice and liberty for all. A price is paid for this gift of freedom and freedom is what makes America exceptional. In his 1967 inaugural speech as then governor of California, Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.” Veterans Day, we take pause and honor those who have so bravely serve this country and protect our freedoms and ideals, our nation’s military men and women. A task not for everyone, but for those who choose to answer

the call it is a decision steeped in love of country, commitment to every citizen young or old, and to preserving American’s way of life. Recently, I had the honor to participate in the Honor Addia Flight send Wuchner off at CVG. COMMUNITY Seventy-one RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST World War II and Korean War vets, along with the host of volunteers departed CVG at dawn for Washington, D.C., to visit the war memorials. My dad had served in World War II, so it was very moving to just be there with them. Each of them was part of the fabric of our nation’s history. They sought no glory when their tours of duty ended, after their long absence they came home folded their uniforms and went to work rebuilding American and raising families. It was just 11 p.m. when the Honor Flight veterans arrived home to a crowd of over 400 and hero’s welcome! Bands playing, flags waving, smiles, tears and kisses. Most of them in their late 80s and 90s, it had been a long day but they

seemed energized even at the late hour. And for a moment, you could see it in their faces; they were transported in time to the day “the boys returned home,” so many years ago. I felt blessed to watch their special day unfold. Kentucky has a long-held tradition of its men and women stepping up in war and peace time, in places like Iwo Jima, Omaha Beach, South Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan to protect our freedoms and battle oppression of others across the globe. According to 2010 data from the Veterans Administration, nearly 340,000 military veterans live in Kentucky. We know of the bravery in action of but a few, for many of our veterans their sacrifices aren’t written in any history books, yet they form the fabric of America. Veterans Day is next Monday, and we say thank you to those who sacrifice their lives, to protect our freedoms, achieve peace and preserve democracy. Thank you to our veterans for your noble sacrifice.

Kentucky Supreme Court decision affects free speech With Kentucky’s judicial elections next year, the public needs to be aware of recent revisions to Canon 5A(2) of the Kentucky Code of Judicial Conduct, which pertains to campaigns and violates free speech. The revision came after the ruling in the federal case Carey v. Wolnitzek, 614 F.3d 189 (6th Cir. 2010). For those of us who are not lawyers, this opinion simply states that judges are permitted to disclose and advertise what political party they are affiliated with. The court correctly said that party affiliation or platform “after all is nothing more than an aggregation of political and legal positions, a shorthand way of announcing one’s views on many topics of the day.” They were exactly right. But unfortunately the Kentucky Supreme Court’s new version of Canon 5A(2) has exactly the same problem. It struck out a sentence about political advertising, but adds verbiage prohibiting candidates from campaigning as a member of a political party. I respectfully ask our Supreme Court: How in the world can a person advertise that he is a member of a political party without campaigning as a member of that political organization? Strangely enough, the judicial canon has a caveat that says “unless there is law to the contrary.” Obvi-

ously there is law to the contrary. The revision simply puts an unconstitutional wellplaced speedstick in the John Schickel path of a candidate who COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST wishes to exCOLUMNIST ercise his already-established constitutional rights as clarified in the federal Carey v. Wolnitzek case. Whether cleverly or inadvertently, this is a huge political disadvantage for any potential challenger. A person who campaigns for a Kentucky Supreme Court judicial seat as a member of a political party would then technically be in violation of the judicial canon and would have to defend himself in front of the Judicial Conduct Committee. A committee appointed by the very same incumbent Supreme Court justice he or she is opposing in an election. The problem is that by the time he defends himself against violating a judicial canon, the election will be over. He could find himself winning a lawsuit and losing an election. (That’s Politics 101.) A cynical person might think there were other motives for this judicial canon besides the commission’s stated reason of limiting speech slightly in an effort to prevent judicial elections in

Kentucky from becoming ultra-partisan affairs. Indeed, as the federal court of appeals said, “(that) argument looks at the problem through the wrong end of the telescope: it merely demonstrates that the clause does not restrict as much speech as it might, not that the clause restricts no more speech than is necessary.” In Kentucky we have an elected judiciary, for better or worse. Voters have a right to know how candidates feel on the important issues of the day. As the court said in Carey v. Wolnitzek, “Informational bans premised on the fear that voters cannot handle the disclosure have a long history of being legislatively tried and judicially struck ... And while political identification may be an unhelpful way to pick judges, it surely beats other grounds, such as the all-toofamiliar formula of running candidates with familiar or popular last names. In that respect, this information ban increases the likelihood that one of the least relevant grounds for judicial selection – the fortuity of one’s surname – is all the voters will have to go on.” This judicial canon needs to go.

LIFE Letters share wartime memories COMMUNITY RECORDER



Memories will be shared at Highlands Cemetery veterans ceremony By Amy Scalf

FORT MITCHELL — Larry Coen’s letters from World War II were written to let his family know how he was doing. Now, some 60 years later, their vivid battle details will relay his experience to other veterans and their families during “A Salute to All Veterans” at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 10, at Highlands Cemetery, 2167 Dixie Hwy. The service is sponsored by the cities of Fort Mitchell and Fort Wright, the James A. Ramage Civil War Museum and Highland Cemetery. Coen’s letters illuminate the day-today reality of fighting for 281 days straight, covering more than 12,000 miles while traveling from France to Germany as a member of the 775th Battalion Artillery under Gen. George S. Patton. Coen stayed in Europe until 1946 to help with the repatriation, which included the return of 125,000 prisoners of war to their homes across the war-torn continent. His letters were left in a box for 50 years, until his death at age 70 in 1995. “We never knew the letters existed until he died,” said Lori Flerlage, Coen’s niece who lives in Walton. “He never talked about it, which is very common for men of that era.” Flerlage will share some of Coen’s letters at the Highland Cemetery ceremony to highlight the sacrifices made by all service members, from the past or current times. During the time her Uncle Buddy was writing home from the trenches, Flerlage was born, and her mom, Janie, was living in Ludlow while her father, George, prepared to go to the Pacific front. She grew up in Park Hills with two sisters and a brother, who all adored their Uncle Buddy. Flerlage has distinct memories of the wooden swing set he built for them, and she has photos of herself as flower girl in Coen’s wedding. She also remembers him writing and recording country music, but didn’t realize how much she didn’t know about him until she read the letters. When Coen came home, he got a hero’s welcome along with all the other sailors, soldiers and Marines returning from around the world. It wasn’t the same for Jerry Riches, an Army helicopter pilot from the 119th Assault Helicopter Company, who completed his two-year tour in Vietnam in 1966. “Some guys would change into civilian clothes at the base because people would spit on them and call them baby killers and stuff like that. For a while none of us got the recognition that veterans did before or after then,” he said. “People didn’t understand that the guys

over there were following orders, and if you’re supposed to follow orders, then you follow orders.” Riches of Fort Thomas said he wasn’t confronted with such outbursts, but he knew many people who did.

“Consequently, our inclusion and participation in a veterans ceremony is good. Any time I can participate, then I will,” he said. “Today, people take the time to bring attention to the veterans and I think that should be done. A lot of

young kids today do not see the commitment they should have to God and country.”

Really good ranch dressing

I’m still waiting for someone to come up with a Frisch’s Restaurant ranch dressing clone for a reader. I have called Karen Maier at the corporate office a couple of times and have left messages with Lisa Norman in marketing, so I hope to hear something soon.

Pick a perfect pineapple: It should smell fragrant when you give it a sniff. Just one cup of pineapple has enough manganese, a trace mineral, for building healthy bones and connective tissue.

plan had been rejected. All the money needed to be sent immediately, they were told, or they would be arrested. “He wanted our bank information or credit card number but we said ‘No’ and the guy hung up. We called our attorney who said it was a scam … I’ll bet a lot of other people sent money and still owe the IRS. Just a heads up because I’m sure you are already aware of this crazy scam preying on innocent people,” Jill wrote. Yes, this scam has been going around for a few years. In some cases the caller leaves a recorded message claiming to be from a credit card company, a lawyer or a payday loan company in addition to claiming to be from the IRS. The Better Business Bureau says some of these scammers are out to get money while others are just trying to get your personal information. The BBB says never reply to unsolicited phone messages or click on links provided in an email asking for your personal information. If a caller claims you owe a debt, ask questions. The caller should state who they are, whom they represent and, upon request, send you written proof you owe the debt. Never give out financial information over the phone. Bottom line, if someone calls and tells you they’ll have you arrested unless you pay them immediately: Remember, it’s just a scam. Instead, you should contact the police, the state attorney general and the Better Business Bureau to report the phone call. Howard Ain’s column appears bi-weekly in the Community Press newspapers.

St. Vincent de Paul receives truck The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Council of Northern Kentucky was awarded a $75,000 grant from The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation for the purchase of a delivery/donation pickup truck. The new vehicle has replaced the non-profit’s nearly 20-year-old truck which had a history of downtime and costly repairs and maintenance. St. Vincent’s main source of funding to provide services is obtained through sales revenue of donated items at four Northern Kentucky thrift stores in Erlanger, Dayton, Newport and Falmouth, and donations made to the society at local parishes in the Catholic Diocese of Covington. The trucks are a primary resource for generating the revenue and providing assistance to the disadvantaged in Northern Kentucky. The fleet is used daily to pick up donations of durable goods and food, and make deliveries of furniture and beds to thousands of Northern Kentuckians in need. According to Joe Larison, St. Vincent’ Transportation Director, the timing to receive the truck could not have worked out any better. “We pick up an average of 29,000 pounds of donated food per month that is distributed to our19 parish

Mums may need help to survive winter

Question: I have several pots of mums on my front porch. How soon do I need to cover them or bring inside for winter? Answer: You need to go ahead and get the mums planted in the ground as soon as possible, so they can establish their roots before the ground freezes. You don’t need to cover them, however, since they need to continue receiving sunlight and continue naturally hardening off and acclimating to the colder outdoor temperatures as they prepare for winter. Although

2 inches above the ground. Good soil drainage and adequate winter mulch are important for increasing winter survival of mums. If the flower bed where your chrysanthemums are located tends to be wet during the winter, there may not be much that can be done to insure survival of the mum roots. Of course, if the winter wetness problem is created by gutters or other water runoff systems, maybe something can be done with drainage pipes and rerouting

drains that will help. If your mums are planted in a bed where you always pile winter snow as you shovel, try shoveling another direction. The other factor, winter mulching, has 2 critical components : don’t apply the mulch over the mums or other perennials until the soil has been well chilled and we’ve had several hard frosts; and if the area tends to be a little wet at times, go easy on the thickness of mulch. A good winter mulch for chrysanthemums can be a 3 inch layer of

Throughout her career, Lyon, an Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker and former university professor, has raised more than $25 million from individuals and foundations – including a national grant from the Ford Foundation – for various films and projects. “Because of her background as a filmmaker, Rachel brings a different perspective on fundraising,” said federation chief

Rachel Lyon is the new director of Special Gifts for the the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati, a newly created position funded by a grant from The Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati. The Jewish Federation serves as – among many other roles – the umbrella fundraiser for Cincinnati’s Jewish community. Historically, those funds have been raised almost entirely through an annual Community Campaign. Recently, though, to adjust to shifting trends, the organization has broadened its focus to encourage donors to go beyond their commitment to the Campaign with “special gifts” to specific projects they find compelling. Lyon, who lives in Wilder, will provide overall

That experience is exactly what we need to successfully raise dollars for our agencies.” Lyon joined the federation in August and has already proven to be an asset by working with volunteer leaders to successfully launch the Yavneh Endowment Campaign for local Jewish day school Rockwern Academy. “Education has always

Most recently, Lyon was a professor and artist-in-residence at Northern Kentucky University. She has also taught at Southern Methodist University, Bentley University and Queens College. Lyon is an alumna of the 2012-2013 class of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber’s Leadership Cincinnati program.

leaves (shredded leaves stay in place better than whole leaves), clean straw, or pine needles. If this mulch is applied while the soil is still fairly warm, the mums’ roots may not reach a completely dormant condition, and winter injury can occur. Normally, it’s best to wait until around Thanksgiving time before mulching over mums and other perennial flowers for the winter.

Retrofittings draws more than 800 guests St. Vincent de Paul’s 11th annual RetroFittings was attended by a recordbreaking 800 guests Oct.. The event was moved to Music Hall this year because of repeat sell-out crowds. The new creative director, Joe Rigotti, used the new venue as inspiration for this year’s theme, “A Night at the Opera.” The innovative event showcased the fashion designs of more than 55 students from the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning. Each student was given a $10

voucher to shop at one of St. Vincent de Paul’s seven Thrift Stores to redesign and create an ensemble inspired by one of eight famous operas. Each design was modeled in a New York style fashion show by UC students and other special guests including event emcee Artrell Hawkins, Cincinnati Bengal Adam Jones and owners of Cincy Style Edit, Marsha Ashley and Brock Maitland. It also featured a boutique filled with vintage and trendy items donated to St. Vincent de Paul’s

thrift stores, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, raffle prizes, and a live auction with items such as a oneof-a-kind jewelry piece designed by Krombholz jewelers. Proceeds from the event will benefit St. Vincent de Paul’s efforts to bring hope to the front line of poverty, with more than 900 parish volunteers visiting the homes of neighbors in need to provide innovative, practical emergency assistance throughout Greater Cincinnati.

ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks cells in the brain and spinal cord, affecting control of voluntary motor function. The ability to walk, talk, swallow and even breathe progressively deteriorates, and in the later stages most patients become paralyzed. The mind and memory are not affected by the disease. The rate of progression varies, but life expectancy after diagnosis averages two to five years with a 100 percent fatality rate. ALS occurs throughout the world and crosses all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic boundaries. Ninety percent of cases have no known genetic component; about 10 percent appear to be hereditary. Statistics show that those who have served in the military are two to three times more likely to get ALS. No cure or treatment currently exists to halt or reverse ALS, several drugs are currently in clinical trial, and research is ongoing. Kentucky also is home to the Kentucky Neurosciences Institute at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, one of only 33 ALS Association Certified Centers nationwide. The centers offer highly specialized care across multiple disciplines for patients and their families.

Three years ago, ITNGreaterCincinnati (ITNGC) was brought to Cincinnati by the Deaconess Associations Foundation and the Vision Coalition to provide transportation to people over 60 and visually impaired adults. Since that first ride in May 2010, ITNGC has provided almost 20,000 rides in Cincinnati and expanded service to Northern Kentucky. ITNGC is now offering a “go where you want to go, when you want to go” transportation alternative to residents in Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties who live, work or play within the Interstatew 275 loop in Ohio and Kentucky. Transportation is the biggest need for seniors and those with visual impairments in Northern Kentucky as determined

by several needs assessment studies. ITNGC’s services have no restrictions. Riders can go anyplace, at any time of day for any purpose. Although 25 percent of the rides given are for medical appointments, consumer, recreation, and employment/volunteering are among the top five ride purpose groups for rides provided by ITNGC. About 70 percent of the rides are provided by bonded and insured volunteers with the remaining 30 percetn of rides provided by paid drivers.

Toys bring fans fans from across the country By Kamellia Soenjoto Smith

What can a toy mean to someone? Jim Black of Indiana had been a fan of Transformers Optimus Prime since he was a kid. “He’s like the embodiment of compassion and loyalty. He would never ask someone to do something that he wouldn’t be willing to do himself,” he explained at Slagacon 2013, a toy and comic convention Oct. 26 and 27 at the Hilton Hotel in Florence. Robert Simmons drove five hours from his home in Tennessee to attend. “At work, I always have toys with me at my desk,” he said. Simmons has a collection of more than 1,600 toys. “I like to fiddle with them when I’m thinking through things as a nice distraction.” He learned to customize toys at the convention during a special workshop. “When you buy a toy from the store, it’s not always exactly what you want,” said Michael Accardi, the instructor, who taught participants how


to assemble and paint their model robots. “You want to make it more unique, make it more like what you want.” “This is fun for me because this is my excuse to get my husband to craft with me,” said Ashley Dethy of Cincinnati. “And it’s my excuse to spend money on toys,” her husband Chandler added with a laugh. A father of three who prefers to be called “Megamus” has more than a thousand toys at his home in Florence. “I actually like the painting and the customizing,” he said, noting that it gives him “a feeling of accomplishment.” Sometimes he does it together with his kids. “It teaches them a little bit of patience.” His store, MegaToyFan, was one of the many doing business at the convention. Some dealers came from as far away as Maryland. Why here? “We’re trying to cover the Midwest,” explained Chad Williams, who has organized the event every year since 2010. Fans also had a chance to meet with voice actors like Jon Bailey, who can be heard on many movie trailers and in the video game series XCOM. “I got the job because I did a good Optimus Prime voice,” he said. But for Bailey, playing with toys didn’t just lead to a job. “I have a son who has autism,” he explained. “Sometimes the only way to get through to him is to use a character voice, whatever he’s in the mood for that day.”

UC Health starts construction in Florence UC Health broke ground last week at what’s to become a new outpatient medical office building in Florence. The two-story building nearly 42,000 square feet – will be at 58 Cavalier Blvd., near Interstates 71/75. The site is expected to be complete in July and is being designed and constructed by Al. Neyer LLC. Up to 30 physicians and 60 staff are expected to occupy the space. UC Health already has orthopaedics and dermatology practices in Northern Kentucky. Those practices will remain open in their current locations (Southgate and Florence) during construction of this building, but will move to the new Cavalier Boulevard facility upon its completion in July. The new building will also al-

It will serve as another one of UC Health’s primary care centers (one of eight opening or relocating in 2014-2015), and will also include specialty practices in cardiology, endocrinology, neurology and obstetrics and gynecology. Peter Iacobell, vice president of strategic planning/development for University of Cincinnati Physicians and UC Health, says the expansion in Florence is part of UC Health’s comprehensive strategy to grow where there is an increasing need for access to quality health care. “Access is a top system priority, so our expansion plan focuses on enhancing access to quality health care – both in terms of geography and spe-

cialty care – for patients throughout the Tristate,” Iacobell says. UC Health is working with Cincinnati-based Al. Neyer to design and construct the space, which will have easy access to parking and an open interior. “We are the leading developer for medical office space in Greater Cincinnati, and we are committed to delivering a stateof-the-art building for UC Health,” said Jim Neyer, exec-

utive vice president. “Our design-build method gives us the edge when defining the project scope and committing to cost early in the process. This greatly benefits UC Health as we are able to move on this project sooner.” Chris Vollmer, SIOR, and Chris Vollmer Jr., members of the Colliers International Healthcare Services Practice Group, represented UC Health in this transaction.

YMCA Camp Ernst wil lhave its specialty camp weekends this fall and winter. The Lumberjack Camp weekend will be Nov. 8-10, and the Winter Wonderland Camp weekend is Dec. 30-Jan. 1. Campers between the ages of 6 and 15 are welcome; fees for individual camp weekends are $115 for YMCA members and $125 for community members. YMCA Camp Ernst is at 7615 Camp Ernst Road in Burlington. “We’re excited to show that YMCA Camp Ernst is much more than a summer fun destination,” said YMCA Camp Ernst Director Elizabeth Cochran. Campers will stay in a centrally heated cabin called Lakeview Lodge with camp counselors, and participate in a jampacked weekend of outdoor activities, including zip-lining, horseback riding, archery, capture the flag, bonfires, and so much more! “At the Winter Wonderland event, campers will ring in the New Year – Camp Ernst style – with songs, dancing, snow cones, cotton candy, popcorn, and other winter activities,” said Cochran. For more information or to register for the camps,contact the YMCA Camp Ernst office at 859-586-6181, or visit the website for a registration form.
