Newport welcomes new business Restaurant, stores open in business district By Amanda Joering

NEWPORT — It’s a busy time in Newport, with new businesses opening frequently throughout the city. From arts and antiques to restaurants, several businesses have recently made their home in Newport. “There is a great deal of excitement taking place in the Historic Newport Downtown Business District with the opening of new businesses and relocation of existing businesses,” said Bev Holiday, community liaison for the city. “These businesses complement existing businesses by expanding the opportunity to enjoy a variety of dining, entertainment and shopping venues making Newport a great place to live, work and play.” One of the new additions, Mad Mike’s Burgers, opened earlier this month at 342 Monmouth St. The location is the third for owner Mike Gelastopoulos, who has two other locations in Florence. After having such success in Florence, Gelastopoulos said he decided to open his third location in Newport because he thought it would be a good fit. “I love the city, the busy-

ness, the hustle and bustle of Newport,” Gelastopoulos said. At his restaurant, Gelastopoulos said he offers a wide variety of gourmet burgers made fresh on-site . A few blocks away from Mad Mike’s at 822 Monmouth St., Steve Strain has opened the doors of Monmouth Street Antique Gallery, which offers antiques and collectibles from a variety of vendors. The store is located in the building of the former Sin City Antiques and Treasures, which closed earlier this year, where Strain was a vendor. “I feel like if (the business) is run right, it will do good,” Strain said. “A lot of people dream of having an antique

store but can’t quit their day job.” In the couple weeks since the doors opened, Strain said he already has around 30 vendors, many featuring industrial antiques, and has seen a lot of foot traffic. Strain said throughout the process, he has had a lot of support from Holiday and Newport Mayor Jerry Peluso. At 108 East Eight St., local artist Rocky Burkhardt has opened the new Burkhardt the Artist Studio and Art Gallery, featuring his work and the work of other artist. “I have been teaching art and doing art for about 37 years,” said Burkhardt, a Newport native. “I am 70 years old now and still going strong.” Holiday said Wisdom Tree, a business featuring multi-cultural hand-crafted items with an emphasis on Columbia traditions, has also opened at 635 Monmouth St. Holiday said along with the new businesses opening in the city, some other businesses have recently relocated in the city, including Oh Darling Vintage moving from 937 Monmouth St. to 606 Monmouth St., and the Purple Chandelier, formerly Pizzazz Interiors, moving from 421 Monmouth St. to 649 York St.

Replacement project starting By Chris Mayhew

CALIFORNIA — Construction to replace the damaged California Crossroads road bridge at Gubser Mill with a culvert will begin as early as Nov. 19. The bridge will remain open to traffic during construction, although the three-ton weight limit will remain in place. The bridge for the two-lane road will be replaced with an aluminum culvert the roadway will cross over, said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine. The new culvert allowing two-lanes of roadway to cross over a creek will have a guardrail, Horine said. Since the new section will be realigned to eliminate a curve in the road before the creek, there is no need to close the existing bridge, he said. Drivers will have to deal with the reality of using a gravel surface atop the culvert at least until spring, Horine said. The asphalt plants are closing down for the winter, but the county wants to move ahead with con-

struction so the three-ton weight limit can be removed as soon as possible, he said. “We don’t like gravel, but we’ll do what we need to do to get this road (fully) open again,” Horine said. The county’s road department will be fixing any damage to the gravel throughout the winter until a permanent road surface is in place, he said. Construction on earthwork to build the new approaches for either side of the culvert will begin as soon as Nov. 19, he said. The culvert was custom ordered by the county and will be delivered in pieces for installation in early or mid-December, Horine said. The county has already received $144,000 in emergency state road aid for the new culvert, and the county will spend about $80,000 for the remaining cost of construction, he said. The total construction cost for the project is $227,620, Horine said. Fiscal court accepted the bid of Lonkard Construction Company to construct the bridge replacement during a special meeting Nov. 2.

Committee plans next Restoration Weekend By Amanda Joering

The steering committee that put on the first NKY Restoration Weekend in March is hard at work planning the second annual event for February. The event, which is meant to offer historic preservation information to property owners, developers, contractors, suppliers and architectural consultants, is a partnership between Bellevue, Newport, Covington and a variety of other organizations and companies, said Jody Robinson, Bellevue’s Renaissance Coordinator. While the first event was held in places around Bellevue, Robinson said since so many people showed up, there wasn’t adequate space in some cases. The next event is being held at Gateway Urban Campus in Covington . A new feature this year is the NKY Restoration Poster Competition, where artists can submit pieces that may become the official visual icon for the upcoming event. Beth Johnson, Covington’s preservation and planning specialist, said the contest is modeled after the city’s Summerfair poster contest. For more information visit

BRIEFLY Church serves free turkey dinners

Student hopes to gather more toys By Chris Mayhew

ALEXANDRIA — Crossroads Elementary School fourth-grader Gracie Mann of Alexandria will pull a wagon around her neighborhood again this year to collect for a Toys for Tots drive after Thanksgiving. Shannon Mann, Gracie’s mother, and a staff developer at Crossroads Elementary School in Cold Spring, said her daughter is hoping to collect even more toys than last year. Mann will also be collecting in Fort Thomas and Anderson Township. Man created a flier for this year’s campaign. “Last year I did a Toys for Tots drive because I wanted to donate toys to kids who would not have a good Christmas,” said

Gracie Mann in the flier. “Thanks to my kind neighbors and friends, I collected 107 toys.” Mann said it felt good knowing she helped make Christmas better for other children. To help collect more toys this year, Mann is requesting people to buy a new unwrapped toy for either a girl or boy when shopping. Mann will be collecting in her neighborhood at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 24; in Fort Thomas after 4 p.m. Monday, Nov. 26; and at the YMCA in Anderson Township Nov. 27 and Nov. 28. For anyone who wishes to donate and for collection details call Shannon Mann at 859-957-5409. For information about Toys for Tots visit the website

CALIFORNIA — Flagg Springs Baptist Church volunteers will serve free Thanksgiving dinners from noon to 3 p.m. Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 22. Volunteers will served the full turkey dinner with all the trimmings in the church’s Fellowship Hall at 12247 Flagg Springs Pike, California, said Pastor Gary Wolfe Sr. The church has set up a bus to transport truck drivers who park their tractor-trailers and pick them up at the Marathon gas station off the AA Highway and bring them in for a free dinner, Wolfe said. Church volunteers will also be taking 20 meals to a nursing home in Butler, and will also take meals to a nearby assisted living facility. The church will also deliver meals to people’s homes in some cases upon request, he said. “It’s just our way of trying to give back a little with what God has blessed us with,” Wolfe said.

NCC advances to state semis By James Weber

Newport Central Catholic is two wins away from a state football championship after routing Walton-Verona 49-14 in the regional final Nov. 16. NCC, now 9-4 and winners of seven-straight games, travels nearly three hours to Somerset

(11-2) in the state semifinals. The Somerset Briar Jumpers are a balanced offensive team that thrives on defense. They allow opponents 11 points and 160 yards offense a game. Somerset gains 300 yards a game on offense. Somerset is in the state semifinals for the fourth-straight year and has lost in that round

the past two seasons, including 48-14 to Holy Cross last year. The last time NewCath met the Jumpers, NCC won 40-24 in the 2006 state semis. The Thoroughbreds continued their roll against WaltonVerona, scoring 28 points in the first quarter. Jacob Smith returned the opening kickoff 92 yards for a touchdown, and Dy-

lan Hayes had a punt return 43 yards for a score. Brady Thacker and Josh Cain had TD runs in the first period. Smith later had a TD rush, and Cain threw a 24-yard scoring pass to Pete Collopy. Tyler Lyon had a fumble return score as well. Cain threw for 182 yards, 60 of them to Mac Franzen on six

catches. John Harris had an interception and Jake Haas and Kalvin Moore had fumble recoveries. The winner faces DeSales (9-4) or Caldwell County (10-3) in the state finals 12 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green. Follow James on Twitter @RecorderWeber.

Campbell County boys teams hit the court By James Weber

Basketball season is falling into place as winter approaches. Games start Nov. 26 in Northern Kentucky. Here is a look at local boys teams:


The Tigers finished 14-16 last year and will have to replace 85 percent of its scoring in the name of five departed graduates, led by conference player of the year Branden Hoffmann. Second-year head coach Jim Hicks, not related to nor the same person as Conner’s long-time head coach, said the team will have a slow start as it relies a lot on football players, who joined the team after the team’s playoff elimination Nov. 9. Returning regular starters are senior guard Devin Myers and junior Zack Poinsett. Austin Woodyard, a 6-foot-2 sophomore, started the final eight games of last season and averaged 6.5 rebounds a contest. “We have a lot to make up from last year, but the kids will work hard and by mid-January, should be playing good basketball,” Hicks said. Bellevue starts the year at home against Heritage in a conference game. Bellevue hosts its annual Swauger Classic Dec. 2122 and also participates in the New Richmond holiday tourney Dec. 28-29.

Bishop Brossart

The Mustangs are coming off a 20-8 season that had a premature end when they lost in the 37th District semifinals. They graduated 6-foot-8 center Joe Jennings and his 14 points per game, plus guard Zach Fardo (8 ppg.) and forward Austin Trentman (4 ppg.). Brossart does return key experience, led by 6-foot-2 senior Justin Saunders, a four-year varsity player who averaged 14 points and five rebounds a game last year. Junior Drew Burns and junior Alex Trentman each averaged six points a game last season. Senior Ben Uebel, junior Erik Rieger and junior Jake Jennings also bring a lot of experience to the table. Mike Code returns for his ninth season with a 153-72 record. He said the team should be strong in defense and taking care of the ball. With the graduation losses, he said younger players will have to take a larger role this season. Brossart opens the season at Silver Grove Monday, Nov. 26, then at St. Henry Wednesday, Nov. 28. Brossart’s first home game is Dec. 6 against St. Patrick.

Campbell County The Camels were 37th District champions last year and 10th Region semifinalists, compiling a 19-11 record for head coach Aric Russell, who has a 212-174 record in 15 years. Senior guard Nate McGovney returns as one of the top players in Northern Kentucky. He is on the comeback after suffering a torn ACL in his knee during the offseason. McGovney has a chance to break the school scoring record. Junior guard Corey Holbook is also a returning starter. Junior guard Garrett Geiman, sophomore forward Jake Franzen, junior guard/forward Luke Franzen and junior center Jarrod

Evans lead the top newcomers to the rotation. “We should have a nice team,” Russell said. “We will be able to score some points and play an uptempo game. We need Nate McGovney to heal, which he is doing, and I feel he will have a great senior season. Corey Holbrook is really coming on and people will see what a great player he is as well.” Campbell County will play at Calvary Friday, Nov. 30, to open the season. Campbell plays Butler at Newport Dec. 1 and has its home opener Dec. 4 against Silver Grove. Campbell will play a holiday tourney at Frankfort Western Hills Dec. 20-22.

Dayton Tom Dilts must replace all his starters as he enters his eighth year as Greendevils head coach. Dayton finished 14-13 last year and finished third in the Northern Kentucky Athletic Conference Division III. Top players in the preseason include senior Jon Williams, senior D.J. Walker, sophomore Deion Conley, Austin Brockman and Derek Holt. Dayton hosts Bellevue Dec. 10 to start the season.


The Bluebirds went 10-19 last year under returning head coach Mike Flynn. Senior forward Luke Turner

averaged 7.5 points per game last season. Senior Bailey Witte posted 6.5, junior Drew Houliston 6.0 and junior Nick True 4.0. True is a 6-foot-6 center. Senior Karl Hinkel, senior Jake Gronotte, junior Brandon Hergott and sophomore Jensen Feggins look to be the top newcomers. Five of Flynn’s projected top eight are football players and the Bluebirds, like most years, are expected to start slow as a result. Highlands’ first game is not until Dec. 7 at home against St. Henry. Highlands will have holiday tourneys at Woodford County Dec. 20-22 and Pikeville Dec. 2729. Flynn expects the Bluebirds to be a better shooting and scoring team this season than last. See HOOPS, Page A7

Newport The Wildcats were 15-14 last year for Rod Snapp, who enters his third season as head coach. Newport returns three starters and Snapp looks for the Wildcats to be strong and defense and play a quick, uptempo style. Senior JaShawn Short averaged 12 points and six rebounds. Senior Cody Pearson averaged 7.7 points per game and junior JaQuan Short 7.5. They are returning starters and junior forward Mike Turner

had extensive playing time last year. Marquis Commodore, Darian Witherspoon and Paul Price are the top newcomers from the JV ranks. Senior transfers Korey Parker and Aroyal Wright add key size. Parker is 6-4 and Wright is 6-foot-6 and extremely athletic. Freshmen Ethan Snapp and Kameron Covington could make an impact. Newport hosts Holmes Tuesday, Nov. 27, to start the season.

The Thoroughbreds bring back four veterans from last year’s team which lost in the Ninth Region final for the second year in a row, posting a 22-9 overall record. Senior guard Michael Bueter, junior center Jake Schulte, sophomore center Drew McDonald and senior forward Nick Seibert all have starting experience. Bueter is a third-year starter at guard and one of the team’s top shooters. McDonald became one of the area’s best post threats last year before missing a month to injury. Head coach Grant Bran-

nen, who has a 116-59 record in his seventh year at NCC, likes the depth his team will have even before football players have a chance to contribute. “This is one of the longest teams we have had in a long time,” Brannen said. “We have guys who can contribute every night and we could go eight-straight games and have somebody different lead us in scoring every time. We will have to take care of the ball and knock down shots, we will get open looks this year because of defenses focusing on our bigs.” NewCath plays at Ludlow to start the season Tuesday, Nov. 27, then plays a key regional contest at Dixie Heights Nov.

and Cold Spring native Tyler Fangman represented the Indiana University East men’s basketball team on the Mount Vernon Nazarene University A+ Autobrokers Holiday Invitational all-tourney team on Nov. 2 and 3. Fangman, a sophomore guard, scored a then-career-high 22 points in both games of the tournament. Fangman then posted a new career high with 24 points as the Red Wolves beat Northwestern Ohio 98-75 in their home opener on Nov. 6.

Success is that which we pass on

The Iroquois said: “In all of your deliberations… in your efforts at law making... selfinterest shall be cast into oblivion. Cast not over your shoulder behind you the warnings for any error or wrong you may do… Look and listen for the welfare of the whole people and have always in view not only the present but also the coming generations, even those whose faces are yet beneath the surface of the ground – the unborn of the future Nation.” We live in an age which promotes the immediate. We see problems like economic deficits as things to be resolved as quickly as possible before they grow further out of control. The media saturates us about the economic struggles Americans

face; and we learn that a small percentage of Americans possess most of the nation’s wealth. Meanwhile, the Keyth Sokol rest of us try to manage with COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST much less, yet COLUMNIST we further divide ourselves by arguing about how to improve our community’s wealth and negotiating the value of services like libraries and the arts to our community, all in an effort to resolve our budgetary problems. In short, we focus on the immediate issues at hand at the expense of the future.

They would no longer see the forest of the future beyond the trees of their own daily existence. It is this mediocrity they would pass on to their children instead of thoughts, arts and progress. Hopelessness instead of hope. A community’s financial security is a by-product of a community which invests in the enrichment of its collective intellect. We enrich ourselves with services like libraries, after-school activities, and the arts. We will, however, always view these things as expendable as long as we view success

Libraries, museums, parks, after-school activities – these and other social goods and services are things we frequently see as expendable when reviewing our public budgets, yet they are what separate humans from other animals. We require more than food and shelter; we require intellectual enrichment. If we are truly invested in our future, then we do not see these things as luxuries but as necessary investments for greater return. Were that small percentage of extremely wealthy Americans to be denied these socalled luxuries, they would, in a matter of generations, also begin to see their own lives on a day-to-day basis. Instead of assuming their children would

merely as the immediate balancing of a fiscal budget. These so-called luxuries, as much as any savings incurred by reducing costs to goods and services, are necessary investments. We must accept that our own generation will have long passed before the seeds we sow today yield fruit. Enriching the soil of our community now with social and cultural investments gives our children an environment to grow and develop strong roots, to create future generations which are more intelligent, creative and resourceful. We have to view success as that which we pass on.

New program helps families in crisis This summer a new program was introduced in Kenton County that provides families tools to address problems at home. Family Day Camp was launched initially for kids charged with truancy, running away and beyond control behavior, and involves the parents and guardians as well. After years of discussion, Thomas Cox and I have partnered to establish a weekend gathering that brings families together to work on issues of bonding, boundaries, communication and problem solving. The camp meets about once a month and at the present time most referrals originate from the state of Kentucky Cabinet

for Health and Family Services. Noncourt referred families are also welcome to attend any Family Day Camp to focus Keith Bales on home isCOMMUNITY sues.

(Western COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST culture, COLUMNIST including Christianity, isn’t fully past such an assessment. As far as religious denominations limit women’s full participation, how can we gloat over any superiority to fundamentalist Islam?) Malala is now at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, England, which treats war casualties and specializes in trauma. Remarkably, she is showing no signs of brain damage, although she will be in the hospital for months and need skull reconstruction. One of the bullets chipped her skull, but didn’t penetrate her brain. More luck than Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

Yousefzai has spoken out for the rights of girls and women to attend school since she was 11. She posted a BBC blog in 2009 about oppression under the Taliban regime. Since she was shot, Pakistanis throughout the country have moved beyond their religious, ethnic and political comfort zones to speak for the rights of girls and women. Her witness gives heart to her classmates in the Swat region and throughout Pakistan in the face of the violence and poverty that destroys schools and can frighten off students and teachers. Girls exult: I want to be a doctor. I want to be a teacher. Politicians were afraid to criticize the Taliban; it was left to Malala and her colleagues to act. (Throughout U.S. politicians’ debates and stump speeches this fall, I heard little enough about the concrete issues of importance to me: health care and immigration law reform, hunger, carbon emissions, environmental protection. “Nuns on the bus” logged miles where candidates feared to tread.)

LIFE Sharing a crafty Christmas COMMUNITY RECORDER



By Chris Mayhew

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS — Each year Campbell County’s homemaker clubs share the recipe for a handmade Christmas. The annual Holiday Treasures event, shows crafts from homemaker clubs throughout Northern Kentucky, and usually sells out at the maximum of100 people, said Campbell County Extension Homemakers Association President Juanita Mitchell of Cold Spring. This year’s Campbell County edition of Holiday Treasures was at the Campbell County Extension Service office in Highland Heights Thursday, Nov. 15. Mitchell said she was most proud of one of the first things attendees saw – a homemaker decorated Christmas tree. “All the ornaments are made from nature and we spent a day making them,” she said. The tree included reindeer ornaments made out of corn cobs, and a garland made out of dried Black-Eyed Susan daisies, Mitchell said. Mitchell welcomed members and visitors, many of whom brought samples of recipes for sharing. “Look at that, you’ve been cooking all day,” said Mitchell as she greeted one of her fellow homemakers. Each attendee received a book with detailed instructions on how to make some of the crafts and food recipes people brought. Fort Thomas resident Linda Davis perused the tables full of handmade quilts, scarves, and decorations including Christmas towels and ornaments. Davis said she used to be a member of the homemakers for 20 years, but stopped being a member after going back to work. Visiting Holiday Treasures was a great way to get ideas for things she might do at home, she said. “I think it shows how much talent people have, and how you can take almost nothing and turn it into something elaborate,” Davis said. Alexandria resident and homemaker Lori Smith of Alexandria said the crafts she made weren’t complicated, but were fun. Smith decorated a two-liter plastic bottle and filled it with sewing supplies to give as a gift, and turned a tongue depressor into a snowman ornament. “It’s something kids can do,”

CHRIS MAYHEW/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER she said of the snowman ornament. Pat Gabelman, of Alexandria, a member of the Claryville Homemakers (one of the clubs within the Campbell County’s homemakers), made a crocheted white scarf and a decorated bag for fluffing up a potato in a microwave. Gabelman said she enjoys getting together with a bunch of other ladies in the club with a point of having a good time. “We have ladies that come to our meetings with recipes, and we always share what we make,” she said.

Wanda Hamilton, another member of the Claryville Homemakers, crocheted six afghans using in a checkered pattern each filled with 35 squares of different bright colors sewed together. Hamilton said the six afghans were being donated to the CARE Mission in Alexandria along with other donations the homemakers collected. Lee Courdray of Fort Thomas said she liked seeing how some of the crafts were made. “It’s a beautiful display, and they’ve given us these wonderful books to explain how to make everything,” Courdray said.

Everett named Elementary Art Educator of the Year By Amanda Joering

Fort Thomas art teacher Nikki Everett (right) accepts her Elementary Art Educator of the Year award from the Kentucky Art Educators Association's president-elect, Kim Soule, at the association's annual conference. PROVIDED

FORT THOMAS — Fort Thomas Independent Schools teacher Nikki Everett recently received the Kentucky Elementary Art Educator of the Year Award at the 2012 Kentucky Art Educators Association annual conference. Everett, who teaches art to kindergarten through second-grade students at all three of the district’s elementary schools and is currently in her 10th year in Fort Thomas said she was honored to receive the award. “I wouldn’t be the teacher I am today without my encouraging family and the relationships I’ve made with students, supportive parents, administration and dedicated colleagues,” Everett said. “Working in the Fort Thomas community is one of the many blessings I count each night and, for me, there is no better job than teaching art to our youngest students and future artists.”

Everett, who has a master’s degree in liberal studies with her thesis focusing on teaching social justice through visual arts, said her love of the arts and working with kids made her want to become a teacher. “I couldn’t think of a more perfect fit for me than to work in an elementary school making art every day,” Everett said. Everett said people today live in a world full of visual images, advertisements, digital application and technology. “It is an important 21st century skill to be able to think critically about what we see and to be able to create art that expresses our ideas,” Everett said. “At the primary level, we explore and experiment with different media, materials and processes in addition to learning about various cultures and purposes for making art.” Moyer Elementary School Principal Matthew Haskamp said Everett is a great asset to the dis-

trict, challenging the students daily to be creative and learn an appreciation for the arts. “I feel she is so deserving of this award because she is helping our students use their creative minds to become problem-solvers for tomorrow,” Haskamp said. “She encourages her students to express themselves by using their artistic talents.” Keith Faust, principal at Woodfill Elementary School, said Everett is always looking for ways to improve and to showcase her students’ work, but he thinks it is Everett’s passion for art that set her apart from the rest. “This passion comes out in the lessons that she teaches in addition to all the extras she provides for our students,” Faust said. “She is the biggest advocate for the arts and our students benefit from her passion.” Everett has also been nominated for the National Elementary Art Educator of the Year award, which will be given out in 2014.

Community Recorder The 19th annual East Row Victorian Christmas Home Tour will be noon to 6 p.m. Saturday through Sunday, Dec. 1-2, in the East Row Historic District in Newport. Neighborhood volunteers are again offering a Victorian Christmas Tea, a separate event during the same weekend in a beautiful 1888 Queen Anne home, built on land that was originally the Taylor Garden of the plantation owned by General James Taylor. A portion of proceeds from both events will go to the Newport Independent School District Education Foundation Inc., for its Bookrooms Project. The tour will showcase eight historic homes – five of which have never opened to the public. A shuttle will make periodic stops along the route during tour hours and restrooms will be available. While wheelchairs may easily maneuver the East Row Historic District, the homes on the tour are not handicapped accessible. Tour tickets cost $15 per person in advance at or $18 at The Sanctuary, 417 East Sixth St., during tour hours. Children age 12 and under will be admitted free to the tour when accompanied by an adult.

Use leftover turkey for easy stovetop pot pie Yesterday I was sorting through the boxes of outdoor lights for our trees and wondering if we’re going to have to purchase more lights. The trees have grown quite a bit since last year, including a small potted evergreen that Ron Wilson of Natorp’s, our garden guru, gave me. I may put that one on the sideboard in the kitchen. The holidays really are fast approaching, aren’t they? Hanukkah, Christmas, Boxing Day and Kwanzaa are all times to celebrate family, friends and food. I’ll be sharing my best recipes, along with yours, so send your faves to me Rita along with Heikenfeld the story of RITA’S KITCHEN why the recipe is special.

Stovetop turkey pot pie

What to do with that leftover turkey? Make a pot pie. This works well with chicken, too. Depending upon how your turkey was seasoned to begin with, you may need more garlic, thyme, etc. 3 cups cooked turkey or chicken, diced 1 ⁄2 pound hot sausage, cooked 1 ⁄2 stick butter 1 ⁄3 cup flour 1 teaspoon garlic 1 ⁄4 teaspoon dried thyme 14.5 oz. can chicken broth or more, if needed 2 ⁄3 cup milk Salt and pepper Peas and carrots, as many as you like Good optional add-ins: sliced mushrooms, potatoes, etc.

Melt butter and stir in flour. Cook to get the raw taste of the flour out, but don’t let brown. Add garlic, thyme, broth and milk. Cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened. It will look a bit lumpy at first, but will smooth out. Add turkey, sausage and vegetables. Cook until heated through, about

until sugar dissolves and thickens a bit. Let cool and then add that to vodka mixture and stir. Strain and put in pretty bottles. Seal and chill a month in refrigerator (or a couple weeks in freezer) before using. To use, serve straight over ice chips, mix with sparkling wine or mineral water and a lemon curl, toss with fresh fruit, serve over ice cream, frozen yogurt or simple cake.

Stove top turkey pot pie can help use up those Thanksgiving leftovers. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

10-15 minutes. Season to taste. Ladle over hot baked biscuits that you’ve split into two, or into puff pastry shells that you’ve baked ahead. You can also put the filling in a pie plate or casserole, cut out a puff pastry or pie dough top to fit and pre-bake the top. Lay on top of casserole to serve. To finish in oven: Pour mixture after it’s cooked into a sprayed, shallow casserole. Top with pie crust and bake at 425 degrees until golden brown. You can also bake it with a biscuit topping. Follow directions for baking biscuits and use that temperature: Put the biscuits on top of the pie and bake.

Pour vodka in large glass jar. Remove peel from lemons with a vegetable peeler. Take off all of the pith – that’s the white part – from the peel as it is really bitter. If you can’t get it all off, do the best you can. Place peel in jar with vodka and cover. Let sit at room temperature for at least one week. Some recipes recommend a dark place. I like to leave it out on my counter just

to see the color change and smell the lemon aroma when I open the jar. The vodka will take on the color and flavor of the lemon as it steeps. You can leave the lemon peels in the vodka for a few weeks. Now bring the sugar and water to a simmer and stir

A credit card is best for shopping online When paying for something on the Internet, it’s very important to protect yourself just in case you don’t get what you’ve ordered. Unfortunately, all too often consumers use their debit card and end up getting burned. That’s what happened to Tonya Coffey of Fairfield Township, who needs to stay in touch with her 28-year-old daughter. Her

daughter has been in prison for the past year and a half and stays connected to the family Howard by teleAin phone. HEY HOWARD! “The main factor here is she has a 31⁄2-year-old daughter that we have. For her sake we want to maintain that communication. That’s really important to us and it’s important to her. She has a mommy and wants to talk

to her,” Coffey said Trying to save money on pre-paid calls from prison, Coffey saw an ad from a company claiming it could save her big money on such calls. “They responded quickly after I made my $194 payment. I subscribed to a two-year plan,” Coffey said. But Coffey ran into trouble with the jail’s regular phone network when she tried to use this new company’s service. “The jail’s phone network asked me a lot of questions I couldn’t answer. So they would not permit me to

have an account,” Coffey said. The company Coffey paid advertised a 100 percent money-back guarantee. But although she wrote them seeking a refund, she didn’t get it. Then she wrote them she had contacted me and that got her a reply. “They did send me an e-mail back saying they were having trouble with their claims processor, with technical issues, to refund the money and they would be getting back to me. That was the last correspondence I got,” Coffey said. Coffey got that response back in June and says now she can’t even reach the company by phone. “That’s no longer in operation. Any email that I now send them comes back undeliverable,” she said. Unfortunately, Coffey paid this company with her debit card so the money came right out of her bank account. She didn’t use a credit card because she didn’t have one. But if you’re planning on buying

something over the Internet, you need to have a credit card so you can dispute the charge with the credit card company. In this case, since Coffey didn’t get the service claimed – and failed to get the promised refund – she could have received her money from a credit card company. If you can’t qualify for a credit card, that should not stop you. You can get a secured credit card from a local bank. For instance, one local bank charges $24 per year for such a card and allows you to deposit as little as $300 into a savings account at the bank. Your credit line will be tied to the amount of money in your savings account. The bank charge is relatively modest when you consider the protection it offers should you need to buy something over the Internet.

makes a great, soft-textured, pleasantly scented tree. For the freshest tree, the ideal choice is one that has been locally grown. It’s also fun to go pick out and cut your own tree from a local Christmas tree farm. The Kentucky Christmas Tree Association has a list of member tree farms on their Web site,

If you plan to purchase a tree from a tree lot, it might be better to purchase that tree early for the purpose of getting it in water and out of drying weather conditions as soon as possible. Once you get your tree home, it’s a good idea to cut off one or two inches from the bottom of the trunk. Place the tree in a bucket of warm water and store it away from

Question: Which variety of Christmas tree will hold its needles the best for the holidays? Answer: In Kentucky, many Christmas tree farmers plant white pine and Scotch pine. The white pine retains its needles, which have a soft, flexible texture. The trees are often sheared into a pyramidal shape, though this often makes the tree very dense, which makes it difficult to hang large ornaments. The Scotch pine’s needles are shorter than those of the white pine and the color can vary from bright green to dark green to some trees that exhibit more bluish tones. Douglasfirs and Fraser

Animal Crackers in my soup, psyche As much as I love them, I can’t look at a package of animal crackers without flinching. Why? Well, sit back because I’m going to tell you. It all started on the first day of kindergarten. We were given construction paper name tags with an animal cracker glued on for decoration. The teacher had us sit crosslegged on the floor while she gave a little welcome

Well, MENAGERIE more like gnawing, since I didn’t even bother to take it off. What I did hear, however, quite plainly was, “Make sure to wear your name tags to school tomorrow.” I looked down at mine in horror. There was nothing but a big, wet slobber mark where the animal cracker used to be. Well, now I’d done it! Obviously, I couldn’t go back to school because I’d eaten the animal cracker off of my name tag. Only 5 years old and my life was

ruined. It was just the first day and already I’d flunked out. Mother was ever-practical. “We’ll just buy a box of animal crackers and glue one on to replace the one you ate,” she reasoned. More panic ensued because I couldn’t remember exactly what kind of animal had been on the name tag. I just knew that if I showed up at school sporting a monkey-shaped animal cracker instead of the buffalo-shaped one I was issued, the teacher was going to notice and send me to the principal’s office where I would promptly be hooked up to “the paddling machine.” (This was an urban legend my great-grandmother conjured up.) Nothing she said could convince me that I wouldn’t get graded on that sort of thing. On the way home from

859-781-5500 • NOTICE

Please take notice that Duke Energy Kentucky, Inc. has applied to the Kentucky Public Service Commission for approval to revise its Demand Side Management (DSM) rate for electric service and gas service for residential and commercial customers. Duke Energy Kentucky’s current monthly DSM rate for residential gas customers is ($0.061391) per hundred cubic feet and for non-residential gas customers is $0.000000 per hundred cubic feet. Duke Energy Kentucky’s current monthly DSM rate for residential electric customers is $0.003093 per kilowatt-hour and for non-residential customers is $0.001036 per kilowatt-hour for distribution service and $0.000761 per kilowatt-hour for transmission service. Duke Energy Kentucky seeks approval to revise these rates as follows: Duke Energy Kentucky’s monthly DSM rate for residential gas customers would increase to ($0.039396) per hundred cubic feet and for non-residential gas customers would remain at $0.000000 per hundred cubic feet. Duke Energy Kentucky’s monthly DSM rate for residential electric customers would decrease to $0.001988 per kilowatt-hour and for non-residential customers would increase to $0.001104 per kilowatt-hour for distribution service and would increase to $0.001070 per kilowatt-hour for transmission service. The rate contained in this notice is the rate proposed by Duke Energy Kentucky. However, the Public Service Commission may order a rate to be charged that differs from this proposed rate. Such action may result in a rate for consumers other than the rate in this notice. The foregoing rates reflect a proposed decrease in electric revenues of approximately $0.72 million or 0.23% over current total electric revenues and an increase of $1.41 million or 1.55% over current gas revenues. Any corporation, association, body politic or person may by motion within thirty (30) days after publication or mailing of notice of the proposed rate changes request leave to intervene. The motion shall be submitted to the Public Service Commission, 211 Sower Boulevard, P.O. Box 615, Frankfort, Kentucky 40602, and shall set forth the grounds for the request including the status and interest of the party. Intervenors may obtain copies of the application and testimony by contacting Duke Energy Kentucky through Ms. Kristen Cocanougher, Duke Energy, 139 East Fourth Street, 1212 Main, Cincinnati, Ohio 45201-0960.

I just knew that Mrs. Pogue was going to greet me at the door asking: “Marsie Hall, is that a buffalo on your nametag? Where is the elephant that was assigned to you? What have you done with it? Speak up! What’s that you say? You ate it? Do you realize what you have done? You are a disgrace to the morning kindergarten. ” Mother drove me to

school the next day. I wanted her to wait and keep the car running so I could make a quick escape, but the teacher never noticed. Imagine that!

school we stopped at Enslen’s grocery and bought a box of every brand of animal crackers. Then, we agreed that this was a matter of such grave importance, we wouldn’t do anything more until Daddy came home from work. Surely, he’d know what to do. After dinner, my father sorted through the cookies and laid one of each shape side by side across the dining room table. Using the magnifying glass that Uncle Charlie had given me for Christmas, I pored over each one. It was impossible to be sure. Was it the hippo or the elephant? The camel or the water buffalo? How my parents got me to settle on one without getting the Fort Thomas Police Department’s sketch artist involved, I’ll never know. While the replacement

If you are looking for a fun food to try at home, pick up a pomegranate. After peeling the tough outer skin, you will find small red jewels that are great to eat out of hand, add to a salad, or combine with any number of ingredients Diane for everyMason thing from EXTENSION appetizers NOTES to entrees. The edible portions of the fruit include the seeds and the arils or juicy translucent flesh surrounding the seed. The white pith and rind are not eaten. Ripe pomegranates are

somewhat square in shape. When choosing a pomegranate, choose one that is heavy for its size. This indicates it has more juice. Also choose one that is free from cracks. A medium-sized pomegranate provides about 105 calories and is a good source of potassium. It also provides some vitamin C and fiber. There are small amounts of other nutrients in this fruit, too.

The edible portions of the fruit include the seeds and the arils or juicy translucent flesh surrounding the seed. The white pith and rind are not eaten. PROVIDED red berries have been linked to reducing heart disease and cancer risk. The edible seeds can be removed by cutting off the crown end and lightly scoring the skin from top to bottom. Then break open the fruit. Once opened, the seeds can be easily removed by rolling your thumb over them to separate them from the white pith. Another suggestion to remove the seeds is to cut off the crown and score the skin. Then submerge the fruit in a bowl of water and divide it into sections. Roll the seeds from the pith while the fruit is submerged under water. The seeds will sink and the pith and peel will float. Remove the pith and peel from the water and drain the edible seeds through a colander. Whole pomegranates should keep well at room temperature for up to a week and in the refrigerator in an air-tight container for up to three months. Refrigerated seeds will keep for three to five days or may be frozen for up to six months.
