Remembering Mitchell Orth

Mitchell Orth, a native of Alexandria who was named “Mr. Brossart” by his peers when he graduated from Bishop Brossart, died at age 25 March 4, 2010, from a heart arrhythmia. In the 10-month period since Mitchell’s death, friends and family members have formed a committee to endow a tuition assistance scholarship in his name. A benefit dance to help endow the planned scholarship will be at St. Joseph Parish’s Memorial Hall in Cold Spring from 8 p.m. to midnight Friday, Feb. 11. NEWS, A3

Building relationships

Having the largest enrollment of any high school in Northern Kentucky, administrators at Campbell County High School in Alexandria realized there were some students passing through the school that nobody on staff seemed to know very well. Allowing the students to pick the five teachers or other staff members they’d most like to spend time with, Principal Renee Boots said the “Campbell Learning Communities” program, now in it’s second year, has helped humanize the school experience for the about 1,450 students.

County eyes state agenda By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

Campbell County Judge-executive Steve Pendery is in billwatching mode with the start of the 2011 Kentucky General Assembly. “It’s a short session, so things will happen quickly, if not at all, Pendery said. “The first thing you want to do is play defense.” Pendery’s reference to a shortened session is a realization that 2011 is an off year when it comes to the state’s biennial budgeting cycle. The primary concern for the county this year is what the recommendations will be from the Pew Center on the States team to legislators about state prison system population that is expected to result in a bill that will be approved this year, he said. A 2008 Pew Center report has

Merger bill a second priority Pendery said a bill the county will continue to support is one that will eliminate a disincentive to mergers of government agencies. A majority of the local government agencies that might consider a merger to save money aren’t currently in the state’s health plan, which costs them more than private plans often do, he said. When the Highland Heights and Southgate police agencies merged, they recognized that Kentucky incarcerates people at a higher rate than almost every other U.S. state, Pendery said. The 2008 report recognized Kentucky had the fastest growing prison population in the U.S. from 1999 to 2007, increasing by 50 percent to a total of 22,000 inmates. According to U.S. Department of Justice statistics from 2007, of the 22,000 inmates in custody,

encountered additional and unexpected costs that eliminated some of the savings that were the reason for the merger Pendery, said. The additional cost because of the health plan requirement was about $150,000 that could have been saved, he said. “Most of the local agencies that you might seek to merge are not in the state health plan,” Pendery said. “Why would you force them into it.” 15,000 were in county jails and not state facilities. The Pew Center team is examining the possibility of decriminalizing certain laws so that some felonies become misdemeanor offenses and not as many people are jailed, Pendery said. In general, decriminalizing certain offenses so they’re misde-

The Bellevue Vets are asking for the community’s support in their efforts win grant money to fix up their restroom facilities. Through the Pepsi Refresh Project, the vets are in the running for $50,000, with winners being determined by who gets the most online votes. Vets trustee Dave Slater said throughout the year the organization’s youth sports leagues bring more than 1,000 children and their families to the facility, which was built more than 50 years ago. With such big crowds, the restroom facilities are not adequate, causing long lines and sewer system problems. “The restrooms we have just weren’t designed to serve that many people,” Slater said. “We end up having to bring in several porta-potties.” Vets members began working on the project, using a loan from the bank, about two weeks ago and have removed everything in the current restroom, said trustee Jerry Dougherty. The plan is to expand the restrooms, adding more toilets and urinals and making the men’s and women’s both handicap accessible. “The main structure will hopefully be done within a month,” Doughtery said. “We’re hoping to have everything done by March 12 in time for knothole.” Slater said they are hoping to get the grant to pay back the loan. Voting lasts until Monday, Jan. 31 and each person can vote every day. For more information about the Pepsi Refresh grant or to vote, visit www.refresheverything.com.

Board uses stipends to fund scholarships By Amanda Joering Alley ajoering@nky.com

Members of the Fort Thomas School Board have again decided to give more than just their service on the board back to the schools. For the third year, the five member board will donate their stipends for the year to two scholarships funds. Board Chair Karen Allen said the money will go towards two $1,000 scholarships for graduating seniors who are planning to major in education and four $500

scholarships for teachers who already have their master’s degrees who are getting some kind of education to enhance their classroom instruction. “For as long as I can remember, the board has just donated the stipends back to the district’s general fund,” Allen said. “But, a few years ago we felt we wanted that money to serve a special purpose.” The student scholarship winners are selected by a committee at the high school that doesn’t include any board members and

awarded the scholarships during the senior banquet every year, Allen said. Superintendent John Williamson said the each board member receives $75 per meeting, earning $900 per year through the monthly meetings. “For me, the is just about serving as a volunteer and giving something back,” Allen said. Other board members this year include Jeff Beach, Gail Federle, Brad Fennell and Scott Johnson. For more about your community, visit www.nky.com/fortthomas

Continued from A1 ernments pay instead of state government,” he said. Although no bill has been introduced, with what changes are currently being discussed, they could cost the county as much as $1 million more in jail expenses, Pendery said. About 75 to 80 people currently in the jail will be converted from felons to misdemeanors, but still remain in jail and paid for by the county, he said. “So, you see there could be a huge financial shift that leaves a very big financial lapse in the hands of local governments,” Pendery said. Operating the county jail, including housing many state prisoners, is already the biggest single expense for Campbell County’s annual budget, Pendery said. The county’s 2010-11 2 $32.4 million budget includes $8.6 million in jail expenses. Almost half of the jail expenses are reimbursed from revenues paid to the county to house prisoners by the state and federal government and from other related fees. Pendery said Northern Kentucky, as a region uniquely on the state’s boarder with a major U.S. city across the Ohio River, needs to pay attention to how, if any, changes will impact drug penalties. “Right now, drug dealers and gangs avoid Northern Kentucky because the penalties are stricter here than in Ohio,” he said. Pendery said he expects some type of action by the legislature this year because the Pew Center has invested research time and money into addressing the issue of overcrowding and rising costs in Kentucky’s prison system.

Orth’s passion for Bishop Brossart will continue As Bishop Brossart High School students who relied on tuition assistance to pay for private schooling, Mitchell Orth and his older sister Megan dreamed of winning the lottery to give back to their school. “He and I always talked, and said if we ever won the lottery we would do something for our school,” said Megan Orth Elfers, 27, Mitchell’s older sister, who lives in Edgewood. Mitchell, a native of Alexandria who was named “Mr. Brossart” by his peers when he graduated from Bishop Brossart, died at age 25 March 4, 2010 from a heart arrhythmia. In the 10month period since Mitchell’s death, friends and family members have formed a committee to

Tickets for the Mitchell Orth Scholarship Fund benefit dance are available through the website www.mitchellorth.com or by calling 859-474-0636. Tickets are $65 per person or $120 for a couple with a suggestion to reserve by Jan. 28. The evening will include appetizers, drinks, a silent auction, live auctions and a live band. For information e-mail mdoscholarship@gmail.com, and there is also a Mitchell Orth Scholarship Fund Facebook page. endow a tuition assistance scholarship in his name. Elfers leads the committee for the Mitchell Orth Scholarship Fund. A benefit dance to help endow the planned scholarship will be at St. Joseph Parish’s Memorial Hall in Cold Spring from 8 p.m. to midnight Friday, Feb. 11. Having the initial public fundraiser as a dance is appropriate because Mitchell enjoyed socializing and when he entered a room everyone seemed to take

notice, Elfers said. He went out of his way to say, “Hi” and talk with people, she said. “I mean he knew everybody, we had roughly 5,000 people at his layout, we stayed there for eight hours greeting people,” Elfers said. The timing of the dance is also a nod to February being “American Heart Month,” she said. February was also Mitchell’s birth month, she said. Mitchell was born with a congenital “heart block” that wasn’t a

physical blockage, but did mean he had a slow heart beat and created a situation where his brain didn’t tell his heart to beat, Elfers said. He received a pacemaker at age 19, and the arrhythmia that caused his death was unexpected, she said. Elfers said her brother never took for granted his education, nor the opportunities that being able to attend a private school presented to him. From 2003 until his death, Mitchell volunteered as a basketball coach at St. Mary School in Alexandria, where he attended grade school. “They respected him, and he knew how to talk to them to make them get to their potential,” she said. Mitchell, a basketball and baseball player for Brossart while a student, also came back as a regular volunteer

for the school’s senior retreat Christian awakening, Elfers said. Professionally, Mitchell was a project manager for M&W Excavation in Alexandria after earning a bachelor’s degree in construction management from Northern Kentucky University. The idea of a scholarship also resonated with Mitchell after the death of his friend and Brossart classmate Lindsey Sendelbach, who died at age 20 in a car accident in 2006. Mitchell went to all the fundraisers for the scholarship started in Sendelbach’s name, Elfers said. Starting a scholarship to fulfill Mitchell’s wish is a fitting remembrance, she said. Elfers said she’s not counting on the benefit dance endowing the scholarship fund completely

RECORDER

A fresh take on building relationships at Campbell County High By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

Having the largest enrollment of any high school in Northern Kentucky, administrators at Campbell County High School in Alexandria realized there were some students passing through the school that nobody on staff seemed to know very well. Allowing the students to pick the five teachers or other staff members they’d most like to spend time with, Principal Renee Boots said the “Campbell Learning Communities” program, now in it’s second year, has helped humanize the school experience for the about 1,450 students. “We had some real concerns about kids who nobody really seemed to have a relationship with or nobody really seemed to know very well,” Boots said. It’s about letting students know there’s someone they can talk with who cares, and is watching

over them, Boots said. Now, whether it’s grades or behavior, instead of saying “well somebody needs to talk with them,” it’s already known who is close with a student, she said. It’s also a tool the school is using to intervene when students are considering dropping out, Boots said. While the 2010 graduation rate isn’t in yet, the 2009 graduation rate was 80.7 percent for the school, she said. Boots said she’s already seen a subtle changes in the school culture after one full year of the program, and someone notices on a personal level if a student has missed a few days in a row. “I feel like it’s very positive, I think in the long run we’re going to have fewer dropouts,” Boots said. This is the first year the CLC groups are focusing on dropout prevention, and building relationships was the first priority, she said.

“The whole business of rigor and relevance that doesn’t happen if relationships don’t come first,” Boots said. CLC group meetings can and do often take place during senior class meetings or other events, so as not to infringe on instructional time, she said. Another component available to the CLC groups is a service component, she said. Using money generated from vending sales in the school, Boots said she has given groups up to $100 to support a community service for ideas like food pantry drives and making blankets for people in an assisted living facility. “It’s to help them be focused on we’re all in this together and let’s do something for other people,” she said. “High school should be some of the most fun that you have, and well if nobody notices you… we just needed to make an inten-

tional effort to do that caring,” Boots said. Jeremiah Sowards, a teacher of English and speech classes, and a tennis coach, said he checks up on students in his group where it comes to academics, behavior and attendance, but they also have fun while doing that. “To help get my kids to buy into it a little bit, I made them some food, some brownies,” Sowards said. Many of the students in the CLC group have grade point averages of 3.2 or higher, so usually their conversations turn to what their future plans are, Sowards said. Sowards said he had one student who transferred in from another school who was an “at risk” student who ended up dropping out, but then sought readmittance. The student cited Sowards’ group as one of the enjoyable parts about school after dropping

out. “I think that’s just one small example where having an opportunity to be around these kids doesn’t seem like a lot, but it can go a long long way,” Sowards said. Sowards said his group also decided to make breakfast bags for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Cincinnati who have to get up too early to eat during the typical breakfast time at the house because of an early surgery or appointment at a hospital. They made 140 bags of food using the $140, and a student helped Sowards deliver them to obtain community service hours, he said. “What I like about the program is it’s not set, if you need it to be academic remediation it can be, but it doesn’t have to be,” Sowards said.

College prep given a nudge By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

Campbell County High School will launch two new programs in the fall that strive to better prepare students for college. The goals of the new programs will be increasing enrollment in advanced placement classes and to help struggling students avoid taking and paying for remedial college courses by adding transition courses. Increasing the number of students taking AP and dual credit college classes will be the focus of the school’s new participation in the Advance Kentucky math and science initiative. “The number of participants in AP and dual credit classes will increase by 10 percent each year,” said Shelli Wilson, associate superintendent for the district, of the program’s goal. The enrollment in five different

Advanced Kentucky

The statewide math-science initiative was started in 2007 as a sixyear partnership between the Kentucky Science and Technology Corporation and the National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI). Through matching funds, NMSI has committed $13.2 million to Advance Kentucky through funding from the Exxon Mobil Corporation and the Dell and Gates Foundations. There are 44 Kentucky schools participating in Advance Kentucky. For more information about Advance Kentucky visit www.advancekentucky.com. AP class subject areas including calculus, chemistry and English language is currently 153 students at CCHS. There is a pool of 210 additional students eligible to take AP classes, but who aren’t, according to how CCHS students scored on the ACT’s PLAN test of college

readiness for 10th-graders. The PLAN identifies students who have at least a 50 percent shot at taking and passing an AP exam. Students who score a 3, 4 or 5 on the five-point scoring system of a subject’s AP exam usually receive college credit, Wilson said. The school will provide handouts at a Feb. 1 parent and student information nights on the potential savings on college costs for universities in the region, she said. Parent night at CCHS will begin at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 1, with three different sessions. "Taking the Mystery Out of College" for parents with students in grades 911 will be in the media center from 6 p.m.-6:55 p.m. Advanced Placement information will be in the cafeteria from 7 p.m.-7:25 p.m. And a college readiness class will be in the cafeteria from 7:30 p.m.-7:55 p.m. To help pay for the program, Principal Renee Boots applied for a

Added AP courses

The impact on AP course selection at Campbell County High School for the 2011-2012 school year will include a first, a course for incoming freshmen: human geography, as an introduction to taking upper level courses, said Principal Renee Boots. Additionally, AP statistics and psychology, and pre-AP English will be offered. An AP European history course for sophomores will also be created. And, instead of alternating years when the courses of AP biology and chemistry are being offered, each will now be offered every year, she said. grant that if received will be as much as $70,000 to help offset increased costs for increasing course offerings including more required AP training for teachers, Wilson said. Even if the grant isn’t received, the school can reconfigure professional development money and other state funding sources to cover the costs of implementation, she said. The high school will have AP courses at all grade levels, Boots said. “It’s the first time we have ever had an Advanced Placement course for ninth-graders here in our building,” she said.

Transitional courses

While not part of Advanced Kentucky, the high school’s new transitional course will help students become “college- and career-ready” in courses including English, math, science and reading, Wilson said. “It’s the right thing to do to offer that course so they can remediate those scores,” she said. And students won’t have to then spend money on college remedial courses, Wilson said. “It’s not just Advance Kentucky, it’s advance Campbell County,” she said.

NewCath pleads the 5th in All ‘A’ final By James Weber jweber@nky.com

The seniors on the Newport Central Catholic team would love nothing more than to win their second straight state championship in the All “A” Classic. A veteran team with some new pieces has a chance to do that after beating Holy Cross 70-57 in the Ninth Region final Jan. 15 at Lloyd Memorial High School. It is their fifth straight regional title in the All “A.” The Thoroughbreds ride behind three starting senior guards, Hannah Thiem, Kiley Bartels and Brittany Fryer. They are all returning starters. New starter Aubrey Muench led NCC in the final with 17 points. Fryer had 15 and Thiem 12. The team has had to replace two starters from last year, four-year starting point guard Courtney Sandfoss and center Mariah Tabor. “It’s been great,” said Thiem after NCC’s semifinal win over Beechwood. “Coming back with three starters is really helping us out. We’ve improved a lot. We’ve had to do different things since Courtney and Mariah are gone and we’ve had to step up.” Defense has been key for the Thoroughbreds. Against Beechwood, NCC forced several turnovers in a 5933 win. “We’re a good defensive team,” said NCC head coach Ron Dawn. “We do a good job at executing and taking care of the ball. It makes it nice when we can get easy points, score on transition.

Said Thiem: “Our defense gets us everywhere and does the job. Experience helps us a lot and knowing where everyone is going to be, having trust in everybody.” Freshman Nicole Kiernan has been doing most of the post work. Muench has added a lot with her athleti-

cism. Kiernan is 5-foot-9, and the Thoroughbreds do not have much size besides her, so rebounding has been a concern to Dawn. “We’re hoping to get on a roll and get better,” Dawn said. “We’ve picked up the intensity the past couple of weeks in practice.”

NewCath’s three losses are by single digits to Boone County, Manual and Anderson County. NCC hosts one of the top teams in the state Jan. 20, playing Sacred Heart. See more sports coverage at www.cincinnati.com/blogs/press preps.

Dayton junior Heather Wayman drives to the hoop during Dayton’s 66-57 win over Lloyd in the All “A” Ninth Region tournament Jan. 10 at Lloyd.

After a rough start, a young Dayton High School girls basketball team is finding its chemistry. Togetherness was a key to the Greendevils pulling off an upset in the All “A” Classic Ninth Region Tournament for the second straight year. Dayton, named after its home city, beat host Lloyd 66-57 Jan. 10 in the All “A” regional, reversing a ninepoint loss to the Juggernauts a month earlier. It was Dayton’s third win in four games after a 2-11 start. While the Greendevils lost to Holy Cross in the next round, they have a 513 record. “This was a nice win for us,” Dayton head coach Troy Clifton said. “It’s a win

that we needed. We’ve had a tough schedule, some tough losses. Lloyd is a much better team than last year and they played well.” The win marked the third year in a row the Greendevils have won a game in the All “A” regional. It came after some soul-searching, which was in order after Dayton lost by 37 to Cooper two days earlier. Junior guard Heather Wayman had 22 points against Lloyd and junior center Shelley Centers had 16. Freshman Nicole Schowalter had 10. “We played as a team and we’ve been practicing harder than we have ever been,” Wayman said. “We’re working on our defense a lot more. We’re not playing ‘me’ ball. It feels good winning as a team and winning for one another.”

Clifton has been emphasizing teamwork. “We played a much better team ball,” he said. “We handled the pressure a lot better than the last time we played them. We played as a team rather than as individuals.” A team with two seniors in Sara Lewellen and Sarah Schoultheis has had to grow this season. In addition to Schowalter, three other freshmen have been contributors. The Greendevils will have key tests coming. Standing at 3-1 in conference play in Division III, Dayton will play at conference leader Villa Madonna Jan. 18 then return home Jan. 21 against Ludlow.

What is your reaction to Marvin Lewis returning as the Bengals head coach? “What was my reaction to Marvin Lewis returning as the Bengals head coach? Let’s just say I was stunned. It is something like naming Napoleon the winner at Waterloo.” B.B. “Nothing has changed with the retention of Marvin Lewis. I have to give A+ + + to Mike Brown for maximizing his family’s financial operation over decades. “Most folks have no idea of the money his family has earned off the fans. They probably could not tell you what the franchise is worth. The family is interested in $, not football. That fact is obvious. It is missed by the public. “Brown’s use of nepotism is just an extension of ‘keep it in the family.’ There was a time in Cincinnati when pro football did not exist. We were all better off financially for that. Now we have a hefty property tax thanks to the Brown family. “We have failing schools in the Cincinnati Public Schools, but a first-class football stadium. The citizens are responsible for this situation. They were sold a pig in a poke. More ignorance in action.” J.S.D. “I was really disappointed that Marvin Lewis didn’t see the wisdom in leaving himself after the terrible seasons he and the team have produced for the fans. “I was further disappointed that Mike Brown would want him back. This is something very wrong with the Cincinnati Bengals, we just don’t want to recognize it publicly.” E.E.C. “I have mixed feelings about Marvin. I don’t place all of the blame on him for the Bengals’ ugly season since injuries were many. However, he can’t stand up to Mike Brown or Ocho Cinco and there were some coaching debacles that cost games. “After eight seasons with the Bengals I don’t expect a big turnaround from Marvin. Problem is, in this environment, could a new coach bring about improvement?

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR N. Ky. is not ready for consolidation

I completely disagree with Rob Hudson’s assertion that the time is right for the three Northern Kentucky counties to consolidate. There are surely some benefits that include cost savings, but the root problems will not just magically disappear with consolidation. There are reasons that citizens in one area (Mr. Hudson uses Villa Hills and Covington) are not concerned with another. This is mostly due to the disparity in service coverage, infrastructure, jobs, and visibility of the fiscal court and other county officials. Another key area to address is the “regional” agencies we already have. If we cannot control the spending and actions of SD1, TANK, and the Northern Kentucky Water District, how can we even begin to take on everything else? Furthermore, each county should continue exploration of its own progress regarding consolidation initiatives to see what will work now, or in the future. You

can cite all of the chamber and “consensus” group stuff you want, but it all comes down to fixing what is wrong and keeping the identities of our counties that will make us great. As for Mr. Hudson’s “hot topic” reference of Cincinnati, I leave you with a few examples: The Banks, Paul Brown Stadium, and GABP. I don’t know about you, but I think we work a lot better than that right now and without having our taxpayers foot the bill. Kevin Sell Alexandria

Smoking ban protects silent majority

I would like to thank the Campbell County Fiscal Court for passing the smoking ban and protecting the silent majority. They are the young adults and children who have no choice in escaping second-hand smoke in public places. They are also the nonsmoking workers who have to breathe the exhaled smoke of co-

workers and customers. The silent majority are those people not pictured on your front page last week who know that smoking drives up the cost of health care and social services in Kentucky. And for that reason Repeal Smoking Ban Now members are unfair to the majority of Campbell County residents. I appreciate Judge-Exec. Pendery’s support of the ban. I regret that Commissioner Pete Garrett started his political career with a negative and angry action - just to satisfy a minority of residents that represent decreasing numbers of smokers and the businesses that cater to them. I hope that Kentucky’s health care system will take good care of them when the time comes. For myself, I glad that I gave up smoking 35 years ago. And I’m glad that I spend my money only at establishments that are smoke-free. For establishments that allow smoking, they have Commissioner Garrett to thank but not the silent majority.

Investing in infrastructure creates jobs for Kentucky and the nation In Kentucky, we’re no strangers to decaying infrastructure. In Louisville, the Kennedy Bridge and Spaghetti Junction have been declared the 11th worst bottleneck in the nation. In Northern Kentucky, the Brent Spence Bridge, which carries the traffic of I-75 and I-71, has been declared “functionally obsolete.” Last year, two gates at two locks on the Ohio River simply collapsed, causing delays in barge shipments during the 2010 winter. While Kentucky is home to a strong and vibrant manufacturing business community, the current economic conditions have made it difficult for businesses to thrive. Unemployment in the manufacturing sector increased by nearly 5.5 percent over the past decade leaving Kentucky’s rates higher than the national average. In order for our state to attract advanced manufacturing businesses and Fortune 500 companies, we must encourage our elected leaders to enact legislation that promotes both economic certainty and growth. Believe it or not, federal funding for infrastructure projects significantly impacts job attraction,

especially within manufacturing. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, for every $1 billion spent on infrastructure, 30,000 new jobs created.

We are currently spending 40 percent less than what is recommended to upgrade surface transportation nationwide. As the new Congress convenes, the Obama Administration and our Senators and Congressmen should work together and pass a multi-year surface transportation authorization to fund the nation’s public transit, highways and bridges, as well as enact a multi-year federal aviation authorization to modernize both our commercial airports and general aviation airports, too.

highly-efficient locomotives and improve the quality of the rail tracks also deserves to become law. Finally, legislation to accelerate the construction and re-construction of our nation’s network of locks and dams is waiting for legislative action, and it enjoys bipartisan support. Rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure will create family-wage jobs and increase competitiveness in U.S. manufacturing sector, in Kentucky, and across our nation. Improving our entire transportation network across the country must be a priority for the new 112th Congress. By working together, the President and the Congress can improve our struggling economy by funding infrastructure projects that will to empower manufacturers and put Kentuckians and Americans back to work.

NORTHERN KENTUCKY RIGHT TO LIFE

On this thirty-eighth anniversary of the infamous decision of the Supreme Court exercising its raw judicial power over the lives of the defenseless unborn, we join with a multitude of others in many cities across this nation, to carry the message of Life to President Barrack Obama and to the 112th Congress. We join the over 100,000 people who marched in a circle of life around the capitol in Washington DC on January 22. As much as we would like to be there, for many it is impossible to travel to Washington. Again, we March on Paper. We openly lend our names to urge The adoption of a mandatory Human Life Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. We pledge to strive to attain that goal in memorial of those little ones who have no identity and bear no names but nonetheless are written on the consciences of all Americans. We are all manner of people - We are Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Conservatives, Liberals and all the shades in between. The beautiful red rose, symbol of short life and martyrdom, will again bloom in Washington January 22. WE HAVE TAKEN A STAND! WE WILL NOT COMPROMISE! AND WE WILL BE HEARD!

SO-CALLED AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE ACT IS INCURABLY FLAWED

“Seriously flawed” is how the Family Research Council described the health care reform act, since, besides funding abortion, “still allow rationing of health care for seniors, raise health costs for families, mandate that families purchase under threat of fines and penalties, offer counsel about assisted suicide in some states, do not offer broad conscience protections for health care workers, and seek to insert the federal government into all aspects of citizens’ lives.” Bishop R. Walter Nickless of Sioux City, Iowa, warned: “First and most important, the Church will not accept any legislation that mandates coverage, public or private, for abortion, euthanasia, or embryonic stem-cell research. …As a corollary of this, we insist equally on adequate protection of individual rights of conscience for patients and health care providers not to be made complicit in these evils. …A so-called reform that imposes these evils on us would be far worse than keeping the health care system we now have.” “Despite the many flaws with our current policies, change itself does not guarantee improvement. …There is important work to be done, but ‘change’ for change’s sake, change which expands the reach of government beyond its competence, would do more harm than good,” teach the two bishops of Kansas City: Kansas City, Kansas Archbishop John F. Naumann and Kansas City-St. Joseph Bishop Robert W. Finn. The recently passed health care legislation was been uniformly condemned by all serious pro-lifers, including the Catholic Medical Association, Focus on the Family, the Christian Medical and Dental Association, the Southern Baptist Convention, Family Research Council, and numerous individual bishops throughout the United States. A fuller exposition of the reasons for objection by serious pro-lifers can be found at lifesitenews.com. Subsidiarity Even assuming that the multiple fatal moral flaws could be remedied, which is impossible,there remains yet another very serious problem with this act. The introduction of the wholesale takeover of the health care system by the federal government is in violation of the principle of the doctrine of subsidiarity, supported in Christian ethics as well as in sound political philosophy. This longstanding doctrine of subsidiarity teaches quite clearly of the dangers of excessive governmental intervention. Subsidiarity is a basic principle of Catholic social teaching, and was again explained by Pope John Paul II in 1991 in his encyclical Centesimus Annus: “A community of higher order should not interfere in the internal life of a community of a lower order, depriving the [lower] of its functions, but rather should support it in case of need and help to coordinate its activity with the activities of the rest of society.” Pope Benedict XVI writes in Caritas in Veritate that “subsidiarity is the most effective antidote against any form of all-encompassing welfare state.” In a document issued jointly by Most Rev. John F. Naumann and Most Rev. Robert W. Finn, this danger was pointed out clearly: “The writings of recent Popes have warned that the neglect of subsidiarity can lead to an excessive centralization of human services, which in turn leads to excessive costs, and loss of personal responsibility and quality of care. …diminishing personal responsibility or creating an inordinately bureaucratic structure which will be vulnerable to financial abuse, be crippling to our national economy, and remove the sense of humanity from the work of healing and helping the sick.” Even assuming that the present law is amended to secure clear language protecting against abortion funding,euthanasia counseling,health care rationing, denial of conscience rights, etc., those in charge of implementing this legislation have made their pro-death intentions abundantly clear, and would have great authority to corrupt what otherwise might be thought to be clear and incorruptible language of the legislation. This administration, or future ones, having put the feet of this nation on this disastrous path of government-operated health care, would certainly find this power and control intoxicating and would be unable to resist further advances in these dangerous policies.

Going paperless by going wireless keeps getting easier. And with an everincreasing selection of portable Internet and ereader devices on the market, people are making choices of what gadget works best for them at the same time more content, whether it’s books or newspapers, is available electronically. When it comes to books, Darci Gressick, human resources director at the Campbell County Public Library, said she chose the Nook from Barnes & Noble in February 2010 because she can not only buy books through the company online, but she can also surf the web and find free book titles through the library. Through Kentucky Libraries Unbound, there are more than 2,000 titles available for free through the library after there were only 50 in November of 2006. “I strictly use it for reading, there’s the e-pub and the PDF files that work with that,” Gressick said. Gressick said she’s always been a prolific reader, and she has read close to two dozen books on her Nook, although she still goes and buys some paperbacks, especially her book club selections. “I have to admit, I wouldn’t have switched if it hadn’t been for my husband,” she said. Gressick said her husband is always into gadgets, and she’s glad for his encouragement to buy an electronic e-reader because now she can take more books with her wherever she goes. “Pretty much anywhere you are, can stick it in your purse and go,” she said. “I still read my paper books, and I don’t know that I’ll ever get completely away from them, but it’s nice to have the option.”

with 978 downloads for the year. That’s more than double the 2009 amount of 398 ebook downloads and quadruple the 2008 number of 184 e-book downloads. In the state, the numbers of e-book downloads more than tripled from 4,163 in 2009 to 13,704 in 2010. Campbell County’s library users currently have 2,000 titles available for download, compared to 50 e-books starting in November 2006, said Kiki DreyerBurke, public relations manager for the library. The first year they were offered, in 2007, there were 105 ebook downloads, Burke said. “Books can be checked out for 21 days although people may choose shorter loan periods,” she said. “There are no overdue fees because they are automatically ‘returned’ on time.” Campbell County was among the eight founding members of Kentucky Libraries Unbound, a consortium of libraries that now includes 40 libraries or library systems. The numbers of e-book downloads don’t reflect how many audio, music and other digital holdings people have downloaded over the years. Campbell County’s library users have downloaded a total of more than 10,000 digital materials since an electronic program was started in November 2006, Burke said.

Why make difficult choices if we believe we can have it all? Making a choice sounds easy. Consider all the alternatives, fully weigh the pros and cons, and finally choose just one. Voila! We’ve just made a choice. Yet, making choices is not always easy, especially the ones that seriously impact our lives and require enduring commitment. All of us have struggled and made choices throughout our lives, and then lived with the results as best we can. We’ve believed that doing so is a sign of integrity, maturity and responsibility. In a recent book, “The Choice Effect,” three young authors point out how different their beliefs and lives are from ours. They say their lives are filled with far more choices to make than former generations. True. But what we may question is, “Even though more options exist today, how do they (or, do we) choose to deal with them?” Humans are still humans. They have decided to choose to live more non-traditionally. Many people feel overwhelmed when faced with too many options from which to choose. They, on

the other h a n d , e n j o y having options and trying as many as possible. Father Lou S o , Guntzelman they try to v o i d Perspectives amaking as many lasting decisions as possible and keeping options open. But they’re smart enough to worry about – as the book’s subtitle states – how that will affect “Love and Commitment in an Age of Too Many Options.” We wonder about that too, as we see more and more fragile relationships and marriages in which the choice of a permanent commitment is understood as a temporary commitment. Options for other lovers seem to remain open. To identify their “new way” of thinking they’ve invented the term, choister (choice + oyster = choister.) Their definition: “A choister is a person who is inundated with choices and thinks the world is his or her oyster.” “Choisters are hypno-

tized by options and can’t imagine turning any of them down. The exact problem with choosing? It takes most of your other choices off the table. And who knows what pearl you just gave away?” say the authors McGibbon, Vogel, and Williams. But wait! Doesn’t something about that rationale sound similar to an immature child still struggling with instant gratification, or a lack of responsibility for one’s actions? Yes, choices can be difficult for many reasons. Some reasons are obvious, some unconscious, and some reach down to the deepest roost of our being. Reminding us of what it means to be a mature human, psychotherapist Dr. Irvin Yalom writes, “For every yes there must be a no. To decide one thing always means to relinquish something else. Decisions are very expensive, they cost you everything else. Renunciation invariably accompanies decisions. One must relinquish options, often options that will never come again.” Are cheaters on their choices trying to avoid the grind of life? Those who struggle

Elder care a top concern for baby boomers It’s a problem more and more baby boomers are facing – how to care for their elderly parents. Everyone wants the best for them, but they’re finding Medicare only covers so much. That’s what Cathy Brinkman of Union Township learned after her 89year-old mother was operated on over the summer. “The hospital said to my mother, ‘You need home health care.’ My sister and I were scrambling around like, ‘You need to get somebody in here quick.’ I did not know the hospital offered it. I wish they would have said something in the first place,” Brinkman said. Brinkman was able to find a company that offered unskilled nursing care. “Unskilled does the assistance with medication, assistance to the commode, assistance with walking. My mother really needed someone to watch after her because she was a high risk patient,” Brinkman said. That was back in August and her mother, Elizabeth Blume, is doing much better now. But, who is going to pay for all this home health care? “We never told the insurance company she was going with this company for this and this company for that. We just asked, ‘Is home health care covered?’ Yes. ‘Is skilled nursing covered?’ Yes,” said Brinkman. Brinkman said she believed everything was covered by her mother’s Medicare Advantage Insurance, including round-theclock unskilled care, also called custodial care. But, after several weeks, Aetna sent denial letters for the custodial care. Those charges amount to about $25,000. At this point, Aetna has paid all the bills for the

skilled nursing care, it’s just the unskilled care bills that are in question. “ S h e Howard Ain n e e d e d Hey Howard! somebody on a 24hour-basis – regardless of how many hours are covered, she needed somebody there,” Brinkman said. Insurance expert John Sherman, of The TLC Experts Inc., said there’s a great misconception about custodial care coverage. “It has to be determined by their physician and Medicare that their condition is improving and they need skilled care. So, if somebody is in a nursing home getting skilled care paid for by Medicare, they can also get some custodial care at the same time to help with the bath or something like that,” Sherman said. A spokesman for Aetna Insurance said its Medicare Advantage program does not cover round-the-clock in-home custodial care. It said Brinkman had been advised of this. But Brinkman maintains more than just custodial care was being given by that unskilled company and said Medicare should cover some of those costs. Aetna advises her to appeal and Brinkman said she plans to do so. John Sherman said if round-the-clock care is needed for a while, often it’s best to go to a nursing home – even though that may sometimes be less desirable than returning to your home right away.

Making choices is not always easy, especially the ones that seriously impact our lives and require enduring commitment. All of us have struggled and made choices throughout our lives, and then lived with the results as best we can. making important choices often use various methods to avoid making them: procrastination; delegation to someone else; devaluing the unchosen alternative; having a thing make it for us e.g. flip of a coin, astrological sign; use a temporary solution in place of a longterm decision, “He’ll make a good first husband.” Some seek a comprehen-

sive set of rules to relieve them of the pain of personal choice. Choisters just plan to enjoy all the options and claim there’s too many to even make actual choice. It is freedom that we fear. Instinctively knowing that healthfully-developed mature humans are made to be free, we yearn for freedom. Yet, when we realize we are free, there is a cer-

tain discomfort. We know that, “What I freely choose renders me responsible for all that comes from this choice of mine and eliminates for me many other options.” From “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” comes excellent advice for him and for all of us: “It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Cuddle up by the fire with a cup of homemade cocoa Just looking out the window at this winter wonderl a n d makes me feel snug as a bug in a rug. W e Rita have plenHeikenfeld ty of wood and the Rita’s kitchen woodstove has been going nonstop. The snow is just wet enough, too, to make forts or snowmen. The last time it snowed I had three of the grandkids spend the night and we spent a good hour sledding down hills. Afterwards, a cup of real hot chocolate made tummies warm. Mine included.

My mom’s hot cocoa

It was a real treat for us kids to have a mug of this, since Mom’s budget was always lean. I make this with regular cocoa powder, not Dutch or the new dark cocoa powder. 1

⁄3 cup unsweetened cocoa ⁄4 cup sugar

3

Dash salt 1 ⁄3 cup water 4 cups milk 1 teaspoon vanilla Marshmallows Combine the cocoa, sugar and pinch of salt in a saucepan. Mix in water. Bring to a simmer and then stir in milk and vanilla. When hot throughout serve with marshmallows. Gilding the lily: Use 3 cups milk and 1 cup half & half or whipping cream.

Cocoa with sweetened condensed milk

Check out my online column at www.communitypress.com for this recipe.

Rita’s chicken chili

For Lisa Cassidy, a Delhi reader. This is a to taste kind of chili – you can always add more seasonings, etc. The secret ingredient is refried beans - that makes it nice and thick. I made this today for supper and it’s perfect to ward off winter’s chill. If you have a chicken chili recipe, please share for a future column.

About 5 cups cooked, shredded or chopped chicken (deli-roasted chicken works great) 11⁄2 to 2 cups onions, chopped 2-3 teaspoons minced garlic 1 red or other bell pepper, chopped Jalapeño peppers, chopped, to taste (opt. – can use red pepper flakes to taste or neither) 4 cups chicken broth 2 cans, cannellini beans or 1 can cannellini and 1 can black beans, drained 2 teaspoons each: cumin and oregano 2-3 teaspoons chili powder 1 ⁄2 can favorite refried beans Salt to taste Garnish to taste: Sour cream, chopped jalapeños, Mexican blend cheese, Cheddar, chopped tomatoes, green onions, cilantro Film pan with olive oil. Add onions, garlic and peppers. Cook a few minutes until onions are transparent. Stir in broth, beans, chicken and seasonings. Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer and cook 15 min-

utes, or until flavors blend. Stir in refried beans. Using a potato masher or back of spoon, mash the mixture a bit to make a thicker chili. Garnish as desired. Tips from Rita’s kitchen: you can use raw chicken, cut up, about 11⁄2 pounds or so. Cook with veggies until onion is transparent. Chicken will finish cooking in the broth.

This is a health giving, soothing tea, one that I share with my herbal students. Ginger helps settle the tummy and digestion. Lemon helps with the immune system and stress. Cayenne helps break up mucous. Honey is predigested so you get quick energy and a soothed throat. 1 tablespoon fresh ginger root, grated (leave peel on) Honey Lemon

For those who have enjoyed taking cooking classes at Jungle Jim’s – and for those who haven’t had the opportunity – there is now a cookbook available. Titled “15 Years of Cooking School Recipes,” it features more than 200 recipes from 58 different instructors and celebrity chefs, including our own Rita Heikenfeld. Rita’s included recipes are: • Herbed Goat Cheese in Baguette Spoons • One Hour Cinnamon Buns • Orzo and Arugula Salad with White Balsamic Vinaigrette (pictured) • Personal Pavlovas with Cinnamon and Ginger, Creme Chantilly and Triple Raspberry Sauce The cookbook costs $19.95 plus shipping.

Pour over ginger root and let steep a few minutes. Strain. Sweeten to taste with honey. Add lemon. Drink and get better!

Dijon salmon update

The recipe from Tom Keegan calls for 2 tablespoons butter. Eliminate that. A reader caught the mistake first and Tom treated her to a pound of fresh salmon. Now that’s good

customer relations! Here are some comments from readers: “Wonderful recipe – I’ve already shared it with two friends.” “Excellent – I’ll make again and again”.
