Superintendent says watch legislature By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
Campbell County School District Superintendent Anthony Strong doesn’t know how much of the governor’s promised mid-year education money will be received by the district or when. “I’ll spend it when I get it,” Strong said. “Certainly, I want to be as optimistic as the next person.” Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear has promised no mid-year cuts to the state’s school funding formula, known as SEEK, and will instead funnel an additional $30 million to $40 million back to the public school districts. But there was no promise made about protecting education money pots not funded by SEEK. Strong said his district’s board could choose to use the money in
several different ways including restoring funds for professional development and textbooks. Both are areas of “flexible focus” funds that have been cut previously by the state, Strong said. Because of last year’s state cuts, 1 percent mandated staff raises also weren’t fully funded the way the funding formula was supposed to work, he said. Or, any extra funds could be held over for the upcoming budget year, Strong said. “We may decide that we’ve been able to maintain the way we are, and use it to offset some additional cuts that we may not know about,” he said. State legislators and the governor have already started work on a budget for the next two years, where there is an estimated $890 million shortfall.
Strong said his message that he shared at the Jan. 11 board meeting remains the same. “It’s important that we monitor all the legislation that is going on that affects schools,” he said. If improvements are going to be made, legislators need to look at ways to enhance revenue, Strong said. “My message is that let’s find a way to improve the revenue stream to fund public education,” he said. The district has lost $600,000 the previous two years in state funding cuts to non-SEEK areas including professional development, before and after school Extended Student Services (ESS), and textbooks, said Mark Vogt, treasurer for the district. The district’s total budget for the current 2009-10 fiscal year is $37 million, Vogt said.

The earliest stages of the budgeting process has already started for Campbell County Schools for the next fiscal year, and right now no increases have been budgeted for, Strong said. The hope is that there’s neither cuts, nor any unfunded mandates for schools, he said. “We certainly can’t receive a cut and still make the progress outlined in Senate Bill 1,” Strong said. Senate Bill 1, approved in the 2009 General Assembly, eliminated the state’s old state testing system and set the state on a path to creating a new and updated system measuring individual student achievement data year-to-year. “Our hope was just don’t take anything else from us, let us do what we plan to do,” Strong said.

City weighs rent increase with economy By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
Cold Spring is trying to work out a deal to keep a daycare business as a tenant in a city-owned building, but with a rent increase. Council discussed their dual concerns, of increasing rent to keep it in line with the city’s planning goals while not pushing out a longtime tenant amidst a recession and ending up with a vacant building, at the Jan. 11 meeting. The discussion was spurred by the tenant, Walnut Hills Academy, rejecting the city’s new six-year lease offer with a request for a different offer. The daycare is in a building adjacent to the city building. The six-year lease that was at a rate of $1,700 a month has ended, and the tenant is renting month-to-month, said Mick Vank, city administrative officer. Terms of the city’s new offer were to raise the rent incrementally at first to $1,751 a month for the first year’s lease, and then an
additional $53 a month for the second year of the lease. The final and sixth year of the city’s proposed lease in 2014 is $2,277 a month, a more than $500 increase from what the rent is now. Vank said the previous leases have been at a fixed monthly rate during the entire six year span. The idea of increasing the rent incrementally annually, especially with lower increases in the first two years, was to lessen the initial impact, he said. Damon Sparks, owner of Walnut Hills Academy, said they have a long-term relationship with the city and have nothing but positive experiences. “And we want to continue with that,” Sparks said. Mayor Mark Stoeber said the city has to consider the recession, but also the previous discussions council has had of bringing the rent of the property closer to its true value. The increased revenue projections from increasing the rent are
part of keeping the city’s 15-year strategic plan on track, Stoeber said. Right now, the rent being charged is for a class C or C-plus property, and the building is a class B property, he said. “We owe it to our taxpayers to be responsible, and right now we’re not,” said council member Brenda Helton. The city has the option to consider what other uses the building could have, and what other tenant uses it could be good for, said council member Lou Gerding. “But the discussion is if they’re not going to be the tenant, then who is,” Gerding said. Ross said she thought Gerding had a good point. “We’ve got a good tenant, how many uses do we have for that building?” Ross said. At the close of the debate after polling council, Stoeber said the city will stick with its original lease offer, and give the tenant a Feb. 3 deadline to sign a new lease or make plans to move.
A group of Campbell County residents are commemorating the area’s history with the unveiling of a new Kentucky Historical Highway Marker outside Evergreen Cemetery. The marker includes information about four U.S. Congressman including Brent Spence, John Wooleston Tibbatts, Thomas Laurens Jones and Albert S. Berry as well as Confederate Congressman George Baird Hodge who are all buried in Evergreen. Marker Committee The men being Chair Paul Whalen said commemorated while the marker will are important in commemomany different rate the conaspects of gressman, it is also history. meant to honor the late John Eidemiller and Ray Roberts, U.S. military veterans and well-known community volunteers. “This is a way to honor them as well as let people know who is buried in Evergreen Cemetery,” Whalen said. Whalen said the group raised the money for the marker from friends of Eidemiller and Roberts and got approval from needed parties before planning the unveiling, which is 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 23. Beyond being congressmen, Whalen said the men being commemorated are important in many different aspects of history. Tibbatts, for example, sponsored the bill to annex Texas while Berry served as the mayor of Newport and was one of the founders of Bellevue, Whalen said. The program will be emceed by State Representative Dennis Keene and will include remarks by Paul Whalen and former congressman and current Kentucky Commissioner of Veteran Affairs Ken Lucas.

Member cities of the Campbell County Cable Board are preparing to receive free equipment and three years of Internet services from Insight Communications. The new equipment and service is part of a compliance with the franchise agreement the cable board reached with Insight Communications. The equipment and service will enable the creation of what cable board officials call the I-Net (Institutional Network). The I-Net will allow cities to communicate over a single network and enable services including secure instant messaging and Web site hosting. The cable board had a public question and answer session about the I-Net that drew about a dozen officials from cities including Wilder, Alexandria, Cold Spring and Southgate to the former Highland Heights Elementary Thursday, Jan. 14. Southgate Mayor Jim Hamberg said he wants to use the new system to link the computer systems of the city building, community center and maintenance garage all together – something that’s not the case now. “We want to do that and take a look at the police and or fire in the same way,” Hamberg said. The I-Net will also help cities communicate with each other during emergen-

Cable board details
The Campbell County Cable Board serves its member cities with a media center in Highland Heights available for the public to record programs. Member cities’ council and commission meetings are also broadcast on government access channels by the cable board. Dayton, Fort Thomas and Newport are not members of the cable board. For information about the media center and government meeting broadcasts visit www.campbellmedia.org or call 781-3495 cies, he said. “If the phone lines are down and this is up, we want to use this,” Hamberg said. The technical answers at the Jan. 14 meeting were provided by cable board members Brett Ruschman, the Information Technology director for Campbell County, and Thomas P. Quirk, a manager of security operations for General Electric’s global infrastructure. In technical terms, Insight will provide cities with access to a VPN (Virtual Private Network) through VPN concentrators and endpoints. Cities will have the option to save money by converting phone lines to voice over IP (Internet Provider), Ruschman said. The first 10 sites that Insight will connect to the county building will be city buildings, the second tier of sites will be police and fire stations, and the third tier of connections will be maintenance offices. Ruschman said the deadline for Insight to connect the first 10 sites is Jan. 28, and that within a few months all the sites will probably be connected. “What we’re doing is cre-
ating one county-wide network for 30 sites around the county,” he said. The cities get to keep the equipment forever, and it will allow cities to connect to servers maintained by the county that are cooled and have a back-up generator to run off, Ruschman said. “So, it’s not going to go down, it’s a reliable system,” he said. But while the cities will have access to the county’s servers, there’s nothing preventing each city from keeping existing or buying new servers, Ruschman said. “It took us a long time to negotiate this contract,” said Chuck Melville, chairman of the cable board. Melville said the board thinks its great contract for the cities and is the future for communications. The whole goal was saving money for cities on their phone bills, Internet service and cable, he said. “We really did fight for this, and we thought it is important, and it is a cost savings,” Melville said.
What if the I-Net goes down?
Alexandria Police Chief Mike Ward said at the Jan. 14 meeting he thought the I-Net is a great service to offer, but wanted to know in the event Insight’s service is down what assurances there are that connectivity can be restored quickly or maintained. During the wind and ice storm events Alexandria had no Insight service for four days, Ward said. Brett Ruschman, IT director for Campbell County, said if Insight’s service is down, the county could still maintain service if by rerouting computer networks over other existing lines running into the county building by services including Time Warner, which come from Cincinnati.

Homeless to be counted Jobless rate steady in two of three NKy counties By Paul McKibben firstname.lastname@example.org
Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties will be participating in a counting of the homeless that is occurring across Kentucky. This year’s count is from midnight to 11:59 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 28. Michael Hurysz, human services specialist with the Northern Kentucky Area Development District, said the count is done to be better able to provide services to the homeless and to have
better access to resources for them. Last year’s count found 39 total homeless in Boone County, 83 in Campbell and 250 in Kenton County. Hurysz said agencies that provide services to the homeless in Northern Kentucky will be involved in the count. The agencies involved are NorthKey, Transitions Inc., Welcome House of Northern Kentucky, Brighton Center Inc., United Ministries and the Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission.
Unemployment dropped in Boone County in November, while it stayed steady in Campbell and Kenton counties, according to new data Wednesday from the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet. The jobless rate in Boone County was 9.4 percent, down from 9.6 percent in October but up from 5.9 percent in November 2008. Campbell County's rate stayed at 10.9 percent (it was 6.3 percent in November 2008) while Kenton Country rate stayed at 10.2
percent (it was 6.4 percent in November 2008). The number of people working in the three counties rose by 2,429 people to 174,132, the state data showed. Meanwhile the number of unemployed people fell slightly, by 183, to 19,618. But the jobless rates stayed relatively stable because 3,122 more people were looking for work, offsetting the gain in jobs. The state's seven county Northern Kentucky region, which includes Carroll, Gal-
latin, Grant, Owen and Pendleton counties, had a 10.3 percent jobless rate. The reading was down from 10.4 percent in October but up from 6.5 percent in November 2008. Kentucky's statewide jobless rate fell to 10.1 percent in November, down from 10.7 percent in October but up from 6.7 percent in November 2008. The report on the Kentucky counties comes a day after Ohio officials reported the 15-county Greater Cincinnati/Northern Ken-
tucky region had a jobless rate of 9.5 percent for November. The reading was down from 9.6 percent in October but up from 6.2 percent in November 2008, according to data from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. By comparison, the national seasonally unadjusted jobless rate for November was 9.4 percent, down for 9.5 percent and 6.5 percent in November 2008. Gannett News Service

Students offer help to Haiti
When Grant’s Lick Elementary students heard about the 7.0 scale earthquake that hit Haiti, they didn’t wait for a teacher to tell them what to do. Instead the Service Learning Ambassadors group approached Principal Amy Razor with a plan. Within hours, each school and department in the Campbell County School district was invited to collect bottled water which will be distributed to Haitians through Matthew 25: Ministries in Cincinnati. The group of fifth-grade students is no stranger to the hardships of
Haiti. For several years, the school has worked on multiple projects benefiting a Haiti schools and communities including raising funds for personal care items such as soap and toothpaste and sending school supplies. A former Haitian restavec has also spoken at the school on multiple occasions. “These students don’t feel like they are helping a far away country; They feel like they are helping their friends,” said Razor. “They saw a need and didn’t hesitate to find a way to help meet that need.”
In addition to partnering with each of the schools, the GLE students are working with conjunction with the Cold Spring Kroger and Alexandria County Market which have agreed to be drop-off sites for water and the Northern Kentucky Water District which will make a large contribution to the cause. Water will be collected through Friday, Jan. 29 when it will be delivered to Mathew 25: Ministries. For more information, call Director of Communications Juli Hale at 859-635-2173 or GLE Teacher Peggy Herald at 859-635-2129.
St. Mary School is midway through the first year of a new preschool program and will start the enrollment process for next year during a Jan. 24 open house. “We wanted to minister to our younger parishioners,” said Sue Greis, assistant principal. The hour-long Sunday preschool instituted many years ago has been so successful that many families are desiring more faith-based education for their little ones, Greis said. The preschool for children ages 3 and 4 at the start of the school year began in the fall with 12 students and has grown to 19 students, she said. The preschool is now state licensed, has two teachers, and its own fenced-in outdoor playground area, Greis said. There are options for three days or five days a week, and also for morning and all-day preschool, she said. The formative program for 3- and 4-year-olds is designed to prepare them for kindergarten with an emphasis on learning how to be part of a group, Greis said. Basic concepts of art, music, math, and science are taught, and there are reading aloud sessions, said Jayne South, lead preschool teacher. Other activities include lessons about the calendar and days of the week, weather, and types of animals including

Each day the students do some type of math including matching exercises. Science projects are usually sensory and can be as simple as does it float or not, she said. It’s a hands-on program, and they are taught some basic ABCs and 1-2-3 counting exercises so they’re familiar enough to learn more in kindergarten, South said. There’s also dancing and singing exercises. During the morning preschool Jan. 13, students bobbed up and down and touched their nose during the song “Tony Chestnut ‘nose’ I love you.” Gaining patience and waiting and taking turns is part of the preschool education since many of the children have trouble sitting down for very long at that young of an age, she said. It’s about socialization, South said. “This is an introduction to school to give them an enthusiasm to be excited to come to school,” she said.

School gathers food for pantry By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
Led by senior Ian Doyle, Silver Grove School students have collected more than 600 cans or packages of food for the Bread of Life food pantry located at St. John Lutheran Church in Camp Springs. Doyle had led a canned food drive by himself the previous year, but this year it was decided the entire school would participate as the high school’s official Community Service class’ annual food drive.
There’s a lot of hungry families, especially this year, Doyle said. To help foster a can do attitude, the incentive of a pizza party for the top elementary and middle school classroom collections donated by Pepperoncini’s in Silver Grove was thrown in. Of course everyone wants to help others, but a little classroom rivalry helps push up the number of donations, said Lisa Hilf, assistant principal. Lafarge North America’s plant in Silver Grove also partnered to support the school’s food drive
The students of teacher Andi Baker’s fifth grade classroom are the winners of Silver Grove School’s elementary classroom challenge in a food drive. The students brought in 125 items of canned, boxed or bagged food for Bread of Life food pantry in Camp Springs. and collected food for the pantry, Hilf said. Fifth-grader Logan Taylor helped push his classroom to victory for the elementary level by bringing in 41 packages of food. Taylor said his parents didn’t mind him taking all the food to the school from their pantry, and that
his dad helped him bring it all to school. While Taylor said he knew the food would mean people had something to eat who might not otherwise, he also had a less altruistic goal. “I wanted to win the pizza party,” Taylor said emphatically.
Houston Hiller, a member of the sixth-grade classroom that was tops in donations for the middle school level brought in green beans and corn that he grabbed from his families’ house. “I thought it was good because we can give food to kids that don’t have food,” Hiller said.

Ten high-achieving high school seniors from underserved mountain or rural counties, or the inner city, will receive SCALAR (SCientificAptitude-Leads-to-Achievement-in-Research-and-Service) Scholarships at Georgetown College for the fall of 2010. Thanks to a major grant from the National Science Foundation, these are fouryear awards in the amount of $10,000 per year. “We are excited that these scholarships will help reduce the 10 students’ loans to very close to zero so that they can focus solely on their academics,” said program director Christine Leverenz, the College’s Chair of the Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science. Program opportunities include travel, social events and other extracurricular activities throughout each academic year, two summers of undergraduate research experiences, and community service projects that allow Scholars to put their academic gifts to work for the common good. Among the pre-requisites for applying for the SCALARS

Four straight for NCC girls in All ‘A’ By James Weber email@example.com
Courtney Sandfoss scored more than 20 points in the last two All “A” Ninth Region finals. In her final regional championship game, the Newport Central Catholic senior point guard had just five points. But the Thoroughbreds had no problem winning their fourthstraight championship, beating St. Henry 60-41. A veteran Thoroughbred team has a lot of balance this year, which has led them to a 12-2 record this season. Four players had eight points or more. “Everyone is scoring, everyone is helping,” Sandfoss said. “A lot of people have been stepping up all year.” NewCath won its eighth regional title, tying Holy Cross for the best in Ninth Region history. NCC plays the Region 2 champion 5 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 27, at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond. “It means a lot, my whole high school career, getting to go down to EKU,” Sandfoss said. “It shows how well we’ve played over the past couple of years.” NewCath was tied 21-21 in the second quarter before going on a 13-0 spurt to take control. After St. Henry scored the first bucket of the second half to make it a 35-26 NCC lead, the Thoroughbreds raced out to a 16-0 run to lead 51-26. The overall damage was 30-5 after the 21-all tie. “We weren’t doing a very good job with our fullcourt press,” NCC head coach Ron Dawn said. “They were getting some easy shots, so we pulled it off and just relied on our halfcourt man-to-man. That

is our big thing. We work on that more than anything.” Senior center Mariah Tabor led all scorers with 18 points. Junior guards Kiley Bartels and Hannah Thiem had 12 points. Another junior guard, Brittany Fryer, had eight and was named tournament MVP. Dawn said Fryer is the team’s best defender and a smart all-around player. “I’ve never won an MVP award. It’s probably the biggest accomplishment of my career,” Fryer said. She said the team has a chance at the All “A” state title. “We just have to play good defense and take care of the ball, and we’ll do well down there. Even when we’re not making our shots, we play good defense and stay in the game,” she said. Sandfoss, a four-year starter whom Dawn considers the top point guard in the region, is the leader of the team.

Jan 19, Scott at Campbell; Jan. 22, Brossart at Scott; Feb. 12, Calvary at Silver Grove. Tabor, the other senior starter, is strong inside. The development of the deep junior class, including several who got key minutes as freshmen, has been key. “We’ve got five of them averaging right around double figures,” Dawn said. “We don’t have one big scorer, which is good. I like it that way. We look at mismatches and try to take advantage of them.” NewCath’s losses are to Boone County and Dupont Manual, one of the top teams in Louisville. NewCath is 2-0 in conference play including a two-point win over rival Highlands. NCC is scheduled to play St. Henry in their official conference meeting during the All “A” state tournament and will likely be rescheduled. NCC returns home Feb. 2 for a conference tilt against Lloyd.
Towles, Bluebirds look to postseason By James Weber firstname.lastname@example.org
She recently added a digit to her career point total, but Bekah Towles’ main priority is changing the zero next to the number of regional championships she has won. The Highlands High School senior center scored her 1,000th career point Jan. 2 at Dixie Heights, but is looking forward to her final chance at the Ninth Region title. “It’s a good accomplishment,” Towles said of the millennium milestone. “I’ve been here a while. I’m glad it happened. Our goal is to win the region. We’ve been one of the favorites to win it and we never have. It would be really nice to actually win it and go down to state.” Towles and the Bluebirds were 8-5 heading into the Kenton County Classic semifinals Jan. 15. The losses have come to foes with a combined record of 53-19, including four downstate teams. Towles averages 15.5 points per game and senior guard Katie Allen 19.3, as the duo plays their final year together as one of Northern Kentucky’s top

I enjoy playing with her a lot.” They have helped Highlands to the regional semifinals in two of the past three
years. Highlands has not won the regional title and advanced to the Sweet 16 since 2001. Head coach Jaime Walz Richey has been working in young talent this year after losing seven seniors from last season. Senior forward Hope Cutter and junior point guard Allie Conner have been veteran leaders as well. Cutter, the fourth-leading scorer on the team at six points per game, had 13 in a win over Conner Jan. 13. “Hope usually likes to pass a lot,” Richey said after that game. “Tonight the girl guarding her was staying back and leaving her open, and I told her to take it to the basket.” Five freshmen dot the varsity roster. The three that get the most playing time are guard Ava Abner, forward Leah Schaefer and center Jesse Daley. Schaefer is the third-leading scorer on the team at 7 ppg. “A lot of our freshmen played last year and have been playing for a while,” Towles said. “They don’t play like freshmen. They step up when needed to because Katie and I are guarded a lot.” Richey said the growth

Little things like that, mak-
ing sure they understand what we want, what the seniors expect out of them.” After the Kenton County Classic, another key contest awaits Highlands, as the Bluebirds host Boone County Jan. 19 in a battle of two of the top contenders in the region. Highlands then plays at Ryle Jan, 22.

Divine providence led to Schneider retirement
Players, community will miss Schneider By James Weber email@example.com
Bob Schneider feels lucky to be alive. He felt pain and tightness in his left leg Oct. 23 during a Newport Central Catholic football game at Lloyd. Doctors later found potentially fatal reasons for that pain – blood clots and a heart aneurysm. That led to open-heart surgery in mid-December, and a lengthy rehabilitation process. If the symptoms had not shown up in his leg, Schneider may have eventually died from the circulatory problems. “I’m at a point in my life where I’m happy to be alive,” he said. “Looking back on it, it was divine providence. The doctor told me it would be very big and fatal.”
T h e health issues led Schneider, 72, to resign as head football coach at NewCath Schneider last week. The NewCath alum has spent 44 seasons as head coach at his alma mater, and leaves with a state record 345 career wins against 183 losses and two ties. He led the Thoroughbreds to nine state finals and three state championships. Schneider, who missed the final four games of the 2009 season, said he faces months of cardiac rehab and is trying to regain his strength. “I had talked to some people who had the surgery and they said it would take a long time,” Schneider. “I knew it wouldn’t be fair to the kids or anyone else.” He informed his players Jan. 15 in a team meeting. “It’s hard to believe,”

NewCath head coach Bob Schneider observes his team during a 2008 preseason practice. NCC junior Chris Kelly said. “I never thought he would actually be gone. He’s been here 44 years; you always expect him to be there on the first day of practice. “He is a huge presence. He’s a great coach. I’ll miss being around him and learning from him. He taught us on and off the field.” Schneider met with the team shortly after NCC’s season ended with a state quarterfinal loss against DeSales. “He talked to us about how we did well coming
back from starting 1-5 and giving it all we had,” senior Mike Leopold said. “He thanked all of us for giving it everything we had.” Leopold said not doing something half-heartedly was always part of Schneider’s teachings. Players also credited the coach for having equal passion for developing them as men as well as football players. A quiet, humble man in conversation, Schneider was always passionate and fiery during practices and games. Senior Jake Smith
remembered a pregame speech in 2008 before NewCath’s contest against rival Covington Catholic. “That gave me goosebumps for a week,” Smith said. “He talked about how they were shooting us down and didn’t think we could play with them.” Sophomore Brady Hightchew said the team will be fired up next year as they play in honor of Schneider. “He’s going to be probably the biggest fan of the team,” he said. “He won’t be on the field with us but he’ll still be with us...The
(current) juniors and sophomores are going to be wanting to win it all for him next year, come out and play for him.” Schneider will miss that interaction with his players. “It's being with the kids every day,” he said. “I always had a fun time with my assistants. I’m a year older every year but these kids stay the same age. They work hard all summer and do what you ask. Regardless of the wins and losses, they always amaze me with what they do. It's very uplifting.” Schneider will take the rest of the school year off from teaching and may return to the NCC classrooms this fall. NCC Athletic Director Rob Detzel said the administration would begin searching for a new head coach and had not set a timetable for that decision. “I hope it’s a happy day,” Detzel said. “I hope it’s time that Bob can have some peace and do some things that he probably hasn’t had a chance to do because of football. “At the same time, it’s a sad day, because he’s the only football coach most people have ever known here. It’s a day when we’re losing a guy who has meant so much to Newport Catholic.”
Reiger focuses on All ‘A’ after milestone By James Weber firstname.lastname@example.org
A low-scoring game and a weather cancellation set up Jacob Rieger perfectly. Rieger, the Bishop Brossart High School senior forward, scored his 1,000th career point Jan. 12 in front of the home crowd at Brossart. He had 24 points in Brossart’s 61-45 win over Cooper. Rieger entered the game six points away from the millennium milestone. He had scored 14 points in Brossart’s previous game, a 39-24 win at Holy Cross.

Bishop Brossart High School senior Jacob Rieger, middle, looks on as coach Mike Code goes over instructions during a basketball practice. Then the next game was snowed out. Midway through the first quarter against Cooper, Rieger took care of business with a basket off a strong lob pass. “That’s how it has been my whole career,” Rieger said on Brossart’s Internet broadcast of the Cooper game. “That’s how I get all my points, because of my teammates. I give all the
credit to them.” Rieger averages 18.5 points per game. Senior guard Jordan Armstrong is second on the team at 10.5 a contest. Rieger entered the All “A” 10th Region Tournament with 1,018 career points. He became the 15th Mustang boys’ player to reach 1,000. Brossart was set to play the host team Paris
Wednesday, Jan. 20. A win puts the Mustangs in a 6:30 p.m. Friday semifinal. The championship game is 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 23. Brossart entered the tourney with a 11-2 record. The Mustangs have already clinched the top seed in the 37th District Tournament, and they have won their first three Northern Kentucky Athletic Conference games in Division II. But the immediate goal is to make it to the All “A” state tournament after losing in the regional tournament last year. “It’s been a goal from the beginning of the season,” Rieger said. “We didn’t make it down last year and I definitely want to make it down this year.” Rieger was a freshman when Brossart won the All “A” state title in 2007 with a large senior group. “Being on the bench with those guys, I learned so much about how to compete and how to practice,” Rieger said.

Brady Jolly had a career game in points scored during a comeback win over Conner Jan. 15. The Campbell County High School senior was more impressed with the few points scored by the opposition during a crucial stretch of Campbell’s 56-53 win. The Camels limited the Cougars to four points in the third quarter after trailing by six at halftime. Jolly, a senior forward, ultimately had a career high 31 points. “The third quarter, we stepped it up,” Jolly said. “That was probably the best quarter we’ve had all year, maybe in the three years I’ve been here.” The win, played at Dixie Heights, sent the Camels to the championship game of the Kenton County Classic the following night. The Camels lost to Scott, 67-50 to fall to 9-6. The Camels host Scott in a 37th District seeding rematch Jan. 25, which will likely just determine who wears the home whites for a third meeting in the district tourney semifinals. Brossart
has clinched the top seed. The Conner win was the Camels’ fourth in a row and fifth out of six. Both Jolly and Camel head coach Scott Code credited senior guard Greg Geiman with defending Conner point guard Jacob Flesch. “We did what we practiced every day,” Jolly said. “That was a big test for (Geiman). He made it a lot easier for us to do our jobs.” Code said Geiman always plays this well on “D.” “There’s no chance we win the game without him,” Code said. “For the most part, we put Greg on their point guard, and for the most part, he has been disruptive.

Campbell County senior Brady Jolly works in traffic during the Camels’ win over Conner Jan. 15 at Dixie Heights. Jolly recently committed to play for Northern Kentucky University and head coach Dave Bezold. He will sit out next year as a redshirt walk-on. “I can’t wait to start working out and getting bigger for that,” Jolly said. “I really like Coach Bezold and how he runs the program. My family gets to come watch me play. I love the college, academically and athletically. It’s been my dream my whole life to play there.” Jolly spent the summer traveling to play AAU ball and improved his game against Division I college prospects. “I love the competitiveness,” Jolly said. “We’re in a tough district, but I think we have what it takes to get out of it and make a run at the regional title.”

KENTUCKY AMATEUR BASEBALL ASSOCIATION 2010 BASEBALL SEASON SIGN-UPS
for children ages 4 through 15
The Kentucky Amateur Baseball Association (KABA), formerly Northern Kentucky Little League, is taking registrations for the 2010 baseball season. KABA is now operating as a charted member of Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken and is taking registrations for children ages 4 through 15. Registrations are accepted online at www.kababaseball.org or download a form and send it via the postal service. Individual, group and team registrations are accepted.
OPEN HOUSE & REGISTRATION
The KABA encourages you to talk with KABA Directors and Coaches at area registration sites for the 2010 season at the following location: Drawbridge Inn (Ft. Mitchell) – January 31st (Sunday) from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.; Online Registration or for More Information: www.kababaseball.org - Phone: 859-991-4619
Adults interested in coaching should go to www.kababaseball.org and ﬁll out a volunteer application. Applications are screened for sexual predator and criminal background history. Completed applications should be sent to Jeff Keener at 117 Ridgewood Drive, Erlanger, KY 41018.
WHEN DOES THE SEASON START
The divisions for player 7 years of age through 12 start playing games the ﬁrst Saturday in April. The 4 year old Tee Ball season is run indoors and starts the 2nd or 3rd week of March, while the 5 & 6 year old Rookie Machine Pitch division starts playing games the third weekend in April. Don’t wait to submit your individual registration form. Teams are formed by grouping children by school they attend, city & county of residence and by request of the parents.
League Structure Tee Ball – 4’s
The KABA offers two sessions of Tee Ball for children 4 years of age. Each will run eight weeks or more. The ﬁrst session will start in March and play its games on Saturday on the indoor soccer ﬁeld at Sports of All Sorts. The second session starts in May and is offered at a discount to those players that participate in the ﬁrst session. Games are planned at Christ’s Chapel in Florence, Silverlake Park in Erlanger and at Friendship Park in Cold Spring (based on county of residence of its players). All games last about one hour. Each child bats every inning and plays the ﬁeld.
Rookie Machine Pitch – 5 & 6’s
This division will start in late April and is for 5 & 6 year olds. The schedule will include one game per week and each team is required to practice once per week. The games last about one hour & ﬁfteen minutes. The players at this division receive two pitches from a pitching machine and then the batting tee is used. The pitching machine has eliminated children getting hit by a pitch in practice or games and has improved play.
Machine Pitch – 7 & 8’s
The machine pitch division starts playing games the ﬁrst Saturday in April. The team will play twice per week. One game is played during the week and one on the weekend. This division offers a pre-season tournament, Memorial Weekend Tournament and End of the Season Tournament as part of their league fees. This year KABA will host a State Tournament presenting an additional opportunity for its teams to gain a “select” or “all-star like” experience.
Minor League – 9 & 10’s
This division starts the ﬁrst Saturday in April. They play one game during the week and one on the weekend. This is the ﬁrst division where live pitching is used. The base length is 60 feet and the pitching distance is 46 feet. Strict pitch counts insure that multiple children get an opportunity to pitch and limits the risk of an arm injury. We allow coaches to use roster batting or the high school rule for substitution. The league uses the non-lead off and steal rules at this age group and records an out on a dropped third strike. Stealing is allowed, but not until the ball crosses the plate.
Major League – 11 & 12’s
This division starts the ﬁrst Saturday in April. This division will use 50/70, meaning 50 ft. pitching distance and 70 ft bases. This division makes the full transition into leading off & stealing & it uses the dropped third strike rule where the ball is live. All Star teams are assembled based on county afﬁliation, but regular season teams are also allowed to participate in the Cal Ripken & Babe Ruth Tournaments. These advance to the World Series through a process that starts with a local District Tournament. KABA also enters its teams into several other tournaments as a way to expand the experience level of its players.
Babe Ruth League 13 & up
This division will start in mid April for the non-High School based teams. The KABA allows its chartered leagues to group players together at 13 years of age or 13 and 14 years of age using the April 30th date. Some of the teams will not start league play until after the High School season is over. All rules are similar to those played in high school, with the exception of pitching and base distances, which can be altered to use the 54 foot pitching distance and 80 foot base distances.
KABA sponsors a season opening and end of season tournament for children at the Machine Pitch, Minor and Major league division levels. It also sponsors a Memorial Weekend Tournament for these same divisions where teams outside of KABA are encouraged to participate. This year, KABA will host a state tournament for recreational league teams, all star teams and travel teams over the July 4th weekend. Each classiﬁcation will be operated separately in naming a state champ.
Coach / Player Development
The KABA sponsors multiple trainings for its coaches and players. This year, it is mandatory that each of the Coaches in KABA pass an online course offered through Cal Ripken Baseball. The course takes a coach through the basics of teaching the skills, forming practice sessions and providing a foundation for the instructional baseball coach. In addition, KABA also offers several coaching sessions for its coaches. The Coaches Trainings are set for the ﬁrst and second Saturdays in March at Summit View Middle School. Call 859-991-4610 for details.
Community Registration Dates
The KABA encourages you to talk with KABA Directors and Coaches at area registration sites for the 2010 season at its “Open House” on Sunday, January 31st at the Drawbridge Inn (Ft. Mitchell) from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Contact us at 859 – 991 – 4619 to get the speciﬁc dates the organization will conduct sign ups at Dick’s Sporting Goods.
Campbell County & St. Marys Registration
The KABA encourages those in Campbell County to assemble teams from within their individual schools. For example St. Mary’s Parish will conduct registration within the school and parish for the purpose of assembling teams to participate in KABA this year. Registrations from Campbell County will be grouped to form teams by school, church, city and county of residence.
For More Information – Please call Jeff Keener at 859–991-4619 Or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Last week’s question
What have been the biggest accomplishments and biggest failures of the first year of the Obama Administration? “I am impressed with what the president is doing to help Haiti. “Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could only focus the resources of the world to help our neighbors in time of need instead of using these resources to fight with our global neighbors.” G.G. “One of the biggest accomplishments of the Obama administration is just the mere fact that a black American was elected as president. While I disagree with most of the administration’s goals (I would like less government and more freedom!) I did think it was about time that the glass ceiling was broken for black Americans and the highest office in our land. I still could not vote for him in all good conscience however, since his goals were not mine. The Obama administration’s biggest failures are putting us into much more debt since entering office ... this coming from a president who complained about the last administration leaving the government with huge deficits! His second biggest failure is something he is in the middle of now, the healthcare fiasco. In the middle of a huge recession, he is trying to pass a humongous new entitlement which I feel will push Medicare toward collapse even faster and find the government searching for and implementing a whole new level of economy suppressing taxes. Pure folly.” J.K.T. “President Obama’s greatest accomplishment is to challenge the status quo when our political leaders are saying ‘This or that can’t be done.’ His greatest failure and that of our Senate and House of Representatives is to spend 95 percent of their time fighting with each other instead of working for the American public they were elected to serve.” J.W.M. “Everything the big ‘BO’ has done is a disappointment and he is the biggest loser. I have never been so disgusted by politicians (and not just the Dems). I am revoking my own right to vote. I mean what’s the point they don’t listen to the people who put them there anyway so why make it easy for them.” N.C. “Overall, the Administration’s ability to multi-task in dealing with an economic crisis, two wars while assembling a new administrative team will be seen by history as a blessing to the nation.” Paul “Accomplishments: Restoring freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution that the Bush administration curtailed.” C.K. “I am so proud of President Obama. The United States’ image in the world has improved and will continue to improve. He has only been in office a year and he has had a lot of leftover issues to deal with.” C.J.R. “Obama’s biggest successes: Saving our country from another Great Depression; stimulus; getting TARP monies back; health insurance reform (I hope).
Next question: Will you still watch American Idol after Simon Cowell leaves? Send your response to firstname.lastname@example.org with “chatroom” in the subject line. “Obama’s biggest failures: Not putting more strings on the TARP money; loss of the public option in health care.” J.G. “Getting stimulus money to our state. New emphasis on our veterans’ needs. Much better image for the U.S. around the world. Attempting the reforming of health care. Caring for humanity. Protecting middle class workers across the U.S. Making intelligence popular again.” E.B. “President Obama accomplished more in one year than most presidents in a whole term. “I feel safer, because President Obama re-established respect for the US in the world. “I feel more hopeful, because President Obama's cares about the environment and started to create ‘green jobs’ that will keep us competitive in the global economy. “I feel relieved that we will have health care that is no longer driven by insurance company greed or discrimination based on medical condition. “And yes, thanks to President Obama for being tough on Wall Street, my 401k is looking much better than a year ago. “His biggest accomplishment? Protecting the Middle Class!” K “Considering the Obama administration inherited the recession and two wars, they faced a tremendous challenge. I think the biggest accomplishments were directing our military leaders to end the war in Iraq, stabilizing the banking and insurance industry, saving the American auto industry and spear heading the health care program that everyone has talked about for 50 years but hasn't been able to accomplish. They cleared an important hurdle in health care reform debate by appropriating $19 billion in the stimulus packaage to help implement an electronic medical record system. His failure is being unable to bring the major political parties together. I guess every President will have this problem until the parties stop hating each other.” J.A. “There have been absolutely NO achievements or accomplishments as a result of the worst failure of a presidency in U.S. history, unless you consider lies, incompetence, malfeasance and socialism to be ‘achievements.’” J.G. “Biggest accomplishments are few. When you have minority leaders who do not care one whit about the people, only about their party regaining control, they throw up road blocks everywhere instead of trying to work out comprimises. “Whether health care, environment, or some Republican senator holding up a nomination (TSA designated head, as an example) they put us, the people, in jeopardy. “I don't expect agreement on all issues all the time, but the current Republicans are a hindrance to our well being. “Bring back the moderate Republican leadership.

Expungement of convictions in Kentucky
The County Attorney's Office gets calls from individuals and receives motions filed by attorney's concerning the expungement or removal of convictions from someone's record. This article will explain what offenses expungement is possible for and the procedure as to such. Under Kentucky law, any person who has been convicted of a misdemeanor or a violation, or a series of misdemeanors or violations arising from a single incident, may petition the Court in which he was convicted for expungement of those misdemeanors or violations. This process does not apply to felony charges. The request may be filed no sooner than five years after the completion of the person's sentence or five years after the successful completion of the person's probation, whichever occurs later. Upon filing the petition, the court will set a date for a hearing on the request and notify the County Attorney and any victims of the crime that can be located. A person is entitled to have his or her record expunged if the Court finds that: (a) The offense was not a sex offense or an offense committed against a child; (b) The person had no previous felony convictions; (c) The person had not been convicted of any other misdemeanor or violation offense in the five years prior to the conviction sought to be expunged; (d) The person had not since the time of the conviction sought to be expunged been convicted of a felony, a misdemeanor, or a violation; (e) No proceeding concerning a felony, misdemeanor, or violation is

If a person James A. meets the above Daley qualifications, has waited a Community required five Recorder years and pays a guest $100 fee to the columnist Circuit Clerk, then the misdemeanor or violation convictions are expunged or removed from that person's record. In the eyes of the law, those charges are deemed to never have occurred. If requested, the Court will state that no record exists regarding those charges. A person whose record is expunged does not have to disclose any information regarding those charges in employment applications, credit histories, or other applications. People may have differing opinions on expungement of these types of records. Some feel a criminal conviction should never be expunged

and others feel people deserve a second chance at a clean record. However, it is important to remember that you cannot have an offense involving a sex offense or an offense committed against a child expunged. This statute is designed to help those that may have made a mistake but have otherwise not been involved in criminal activity to have a clean record. This is critically important for people in many respects. When I speak to groups of high school students, I always stress the importance of staying out of trouble and having a clean record. A criminal record, particularly involving sex offenses, drug offenses, or violence make it difficult, if not impossible, to get into college and later in life to obtain employment. I hope this information is interesting and helpful.

Graham shows goodwill at Goodwill By Patricia Scheyer Community Recorder Contributor
For great bargains when the economy is tough, Goodwill is the place many people go to shop. Rick Graham is an employee of the Goodwill in Florence, and he adds some friendliness to the shopping experience. “I like being here, and I love talking with the people,” Graham said. “I try to help people.” His boss, Chrissy Hubbard, would like to clone him. “Rick is very dedicated – it’s hard to get him to go home,” she explained. “I’ll never find another one like him. It is not just a job to him – he considers this his responsibility to help others.” Anne Walters, sales and district manager for Good-
will, says Rick is very hardworking, and contributes to Goodwill’s mission of helping people. Although Graham’s main jobs are pricing items and moving furniture, regular customers look forward to seeing his smiling friendly face, and he is never too busy to answer questions, or just say hello. “I never considered myself a people person, but I sure am here,” he acknowledged. “I work at treating people like I would like to be treated, even on days when I don’t feel like it. I love the customers.” “Catch a Star” recognizes excellence in customer service in the business community and in volunteer work. To make a nomination, send a detailed email to Michelle Shaw at email@example.com.
Since Cold Spring resident Daniel Martin Moore sent out an unsolicited demo to the label Sub Pop in January 2007 he’s been signed and recorded two albums with his second album due out this February. “I just kind of off the cuff sent them a demo that I had recorded at home, and thank the Lord they liked it and wanted to make a record,” Moore said. Moore, 27, sings his lyrics in soft tones of flowing melodies that bristle with emotion with the accompaniment of a guitar. Moore said his musical interests are diverse ranging from jazz, pop and country, but his favorite music is folk songs and ballads. “I feel there are themes that unite them and probably run through all my music,” he said. “One being the love of Appalachian folk music, and love of simple melodies and things like that. I love Kentucky, it’s my home and always will be.” Moore’s second album “Dear Companion” is a compilation album of songs about mountain top removal co-written and recorded with Louisville cellist Ben Sollee.

albums are distinct. Moore’s first album, a solo venture title “Stray Age” was released in October 2008, and was produced by Joe Chiccarelli who he found through Sub Pop. “Stray Age, is very quiet, and it’s the very first thing I really recorded with other musicians,” Moore said. Moore said he and Chiccarelli had long conversations, and only wanted to include things that were essential. “There is a song that has some horns, but everything is very austere,” Moore said. It’s mostly just guitar and vocals with some piano, mandolin and upright base on some songs, he said. “Joe and I wanted to make sure we caught the essence of the songs and didn’t clutter them up too much,” Moore said. “Dear Companion” is a little bit more rock with some electric guitar, but also
some banjo and old-time fiddle, he said. A few of the songs are specifically about mountain top removal, but others on the album aren’t directly about the issue, Moore said. “A lot of it is about the idea of the culture of consumption that fuels it,” he said. The point is to raise national awareness of mountain top removal, Moore said. “Some people don’t understand the scale of it and the irreversible impact on public health and water,” he said. To buy or hear some of Moore’s music and tour information visit www.subpop.com or www.danielmartinmoore.com. Moore’s first album, Stray Age, is also available on vinyl from Cincinnati’s Shake It Records, and some of his songs are available to hear free at www.myspace. com/danielmartinmoore.
Women’s Crisis Center wins grant The Women’s Crisis Center has received a $20,000 grant from the Weathering the Economic Storm Fund, a partnership of 19 funders, managed by The Greater Cincinnati Foundation. Th center will use the grant to help fund operating expenses of its domestic violence shelter in Northern Kentucky. Women’s Crisis Center provides the only domestic violence shelters for victims and their children in 13 Northern Kentucky counties. “This generous gift is already being put to good use at our shelter,” said Martha Malloy, the center’s interim executive director. “We are seeing an influx of clients with greater needs
this year. They are staying in our shelters for longer periods than in the past and are having difficulty finding employment and the resources they need to create stability for themselves and their children. “Even as the demand for services has increased, our agency’s reduced income has forced us to make cuts in the number of staff providing services,” she added. “It’s been a difficult year. That makes the generosity of the Weathering the Economic Storm Fund that much more significant.” The Weathering the Economic Storm Fund was created this year to help reduce the devastating effects of the economic downturn. In addition to The Greater

Bookstores, atheists and spiritual hunger Bookstore titles reveal much about a people. One of many noticeable content changes in recent years is the increase of books by atheists. We might wonder why such authors are motivated to expend all that time and effort writing about something they believe doesn’t exist. The reason they write, of course, is because there’s a market for their books. We live at a difficult moment in history. We’re stuck between a growing secular system with which we are uncomfortable, and a religious system we may feel we cannot fully embrace. Countless people sense an emptiness or confusion and wonder “What do I really believe in?” A spirituality revolution is taking place. On one side of the current indecision are writers who are atheists or agnostics. They present their arguments implying it’s foolish to still fall for the God stuff, organized
religion, and beliefs other people instill in us. “Think for yourself and you’ll come to the same conclusion we do,” they insinuate. Currently Father Lou Guntzelman many people are uneasy saying Perspectives they are religious. They prefer to say they are spiritual rather than religious. Spiritual indicates they believe in God, prayer, the Bible, Jesus Christ, doing good for others, and possibly an afterlife in heaven. Religious implies an adherence to all the beliefs a particular church may espouse, an association with that church’s historic or present flaws, a perceived legalism rather than personalism, and a moral prudishness. Recent polls have shown a surge
in “nones,” i.e. people who profess they are not associated any longer with any religion. “The spirituality revolution is also discovered in the recent upwelling of spiritual feeling in young people throughout the world, who increasingly realize, often with some desperation, that society is in need of renewal, and that an awareness of spirit holds the key to our personal, social, and ecological survival,” writes David Tacey in “The Spirituality Revolution.” Is this an era becoming more open to being led by God’s Holy Spirit, or, in our arrogance, do we imagine that we have outgrown the sacred and that the notions of soul and spirit are archaisms of a former era? Yet the hunger for the sacred has increased in our time and we don’t know how to respond. What is wisdom and what is delusion? What comprises spiritual health and
unhealthiness in ourselves and others? Traditionally churches have distributed catechisms containing summations of beliefs. What seems needed now among searching and intelligent people are adequate contemporary explanations of beliefs. No longer can people be told just what to believe but convincingly explained why it is believed as truth. One Catholic cardinal recently lamented the degree of “theological illiteracy” among the Church’s membership. Sandra M. Schneiders writes, “The theology which undergirded our spirituality in the past cannot be resuscitated, and intelligent people cannot live a spirituality which is theological bootless. We are, to large extent, running on theological empty.” In a scientific and technological culture, are there still intelligent people around whose hearts grasp the legitimacy of also living a belief
in the transcendent? Consider the words of Albert Einstein: “The most beautiful emotion we can experience is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead, a snuffed out candle. “To sense that behind anything that can be experienced there is something that our minds cannot grasp, whose beauty and sublimity reaches us only indirectly: this is religiousness. In this sense, and in this sense only, I am a devoutly religious man.” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Watch for exclusions on travel insurance policy When you book an airline ticket on the Internet these days the airlines ask if you’d like to buy travel insurance. But, you need to know not all travel insurance is alike. In fact, many of the disasters that drive the sale of these particular insurance policies are just not covered. Laura Mieling of Clifton thought she was protecting herself when she went on Delta Air Line’s Web site and booked a plane ticket for a vacation three months later. “They give you the option of travel insurance. I looked at the page and it says it’s covered if you and your family gets sick or dies, so that’s why I did it,” she said. Mieling’s 69-year-old mother had been home battling cancer for the past year and a half so she said she bought the insurance just in case she had to cancel the
plane trip. A m o n t h before her trip her mother did become seriously Howard Ain ill. “ S h e Hey Howard! went into hospice, basically. We had the meeting and she decided to do hospice. The doctor with hospice said she had two weeks to live,” she said. Mieling immediately canceled her plane ticket and applied to the insurance company for a refund of the air fare. Her mother died the day before she was to have left on that vacation. A few days later she spoke with the travel insurance company about the
refund. “They said, ‘Well, did she have cancer?’ I said, ‘Yeah.’ She said, ‘Well, that’s a preexisting condition so we can’t do it,’ ” said Mieling. Mieling said she never imagined this could happen, but after checking carefully through the insurance policy she did find that exclusion. She said, “They had the 20-something page policy that I didn’t bother to read – I don’t know who does. It said if it’s a pre-existing health condition you can’t get coverage. So, I said, ‘OK, they got me.’ ” Mieling checked the Internet and found dozens of other complaints about this same type of thing involving insurance policies sold on the Internet. A spokesman for that insurance company told me the policies sold on these
Web sites are very inexpensive and so have exclusions contained in them. Instead of buying travel insurance from these Web sites, that insurance company spokesman said you can buy a policy from your travel agent and, while it will cost you more money, it will not have these exclusions. He said that insurance company is considering adding a more comprehensive policy option to the Delta Air Lines Web site.

If this option were offered, consumers would not only be more aware of the exclusions, but they could have a choice of which type of policy to buy. A Delta spokeswoman told me the airline is following up with the insurance company on this suggestion. Bottom line, before buying a travel insurance policy it’s important to carefully check out all the possible exclusions to make sure it will suit your needs.

A ‘roasty’ dinner for cold-weather meals Every January I clean out my files. The problem is, I have a hard time pitching much out. But this year I was ruthless and had five gargantuan garbage bags filled. And I’m looking at four filing cabinets (and they’re large ones) stuffed to the gills still. My kids tell me I should get rid of all my paper files. I tell them these files are my security blanket. I don’t trust computer-generated anything. I did find a whole bunch of wonderful recipes from readers like Mary Pollock, who sent me a wheat-free gingerbread muffin recipe for Pat Landrum, and a nice lady who personally delivered a “perfect pound cake recipe.” I hope to get to all of these soon.
Beef pot roast with garlic and ginger
Perfect for this bone-chilling weather. Try roasting in the oven, covered, at about 300 degrees for a couple or so hours. 1 chuck or other inexpensive roast, approx. 3 lbs.
Oil for browning 1 ⁄4 cup hot water 3 ⁄4 teas p o o n powdered ginger or 1 tablespoon Rita m i n c e d Heikenfeld fresh ginRita’s kitchen ger 1 tablespoon garlic, minced 1 ⁄4 cup soy sauce or more to taste 2 large onions, sliced 2 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with 1⁄4 cup cold water Salt and pepper to taste Brown beef in a small amount of oil. Cover with water, ginger, garlic, soy sauce and onion. Cover and simmer about two to three hours, until tender, adding water as needed, about 1 cup. Remove meat. Add cornstarch mixture to sauce and stir until thick. Adjust seasonings. (May need to add a bit more cornstarch dissolved in a small amount of cold water). Serve over noodles or mashed potatoes.
Pogue’s French dressing
I can’t believe I finally found this recipe in a stack, sent last year to me by Rosemary Auer who lives downtown. She and I had a nice chat when I was doing a demo at Macy’s Fountain Place. I hope Rosemary forgives me for just now finding it. You can add more ketchup or more vinegar and/or oil.
Whisk together: 1
⁄2 cup each: ketchup and sugar 1 ⁄3 cup each: oil and red wine vinegar 21⁄2 tablespoons grated onion (I’d go to taste on this) 1 ⁄2 teaspoon each: paprika, chili powder, salt, dry mustard, celery seed
Campbell’s Barn Restaurant & Saloon’s peanut butter pie
This restaurant on Ohio Pike, near Amelia, is serving up some mighty good food. I can’t wait to go there again and check out all the new offerings. I’ve had several requests for this pie, including Diana Salmon, who absolutely
loves it. Tracy Luginbuhl, owner, graciously shared this recipe, which originated with Our Place Restaurant. Campbell’s makes this pie in large quantities, and I appreciate them working out a home version. Now if you can’t find a 10-inch pie shell, go ahead and use what you have, knowing that you may have some filling left over. The Restaurant also serves a much-requested red wine vinegar Catalina type salad dressing, also originating from Our Place Restaurant. 1 pie shell, 10-inch, baked and cooled 16 oz. crunchy peanut butter 1 pound confectioner’s sugar Large container Cool Whip, thawed, or use whipping cream and whip until stiff Large box vanilla instant pudding Mix peanut butter with sugar. It should be crumbly. Add a bit more sugar if you need to so it crumbles between your fingers.
Mix pudding according to directions, add 1 cup Cool Whip and allow to chill. Then mix 3⁄4 peanut butter mixture in with pudding mixture. Cover top with rest of Cool Whip and sprinkle rest of peanut butter mixture on top.
Good cookie icing
This icing dries hard so cookies can be stacked After you make the icing, color as desired. For Marlene, a Northern Ky. reader.

Easy-to-care-for plants good for indoor environment to your décor! For years now research continues to show us that having both flowering and tropical plants around us indoors can do so much for our well being. They can perk up our moods, help us to
study better, reduce fatigue, lower stress, bring us positive vibes, give us something to take care of, make us feel good, and in many cases, can actually help heal us. Yes, studies have shown that many patients having
flowers or plants in their rooms have a better recovery. On the other hand, flowers and foliage plants can also bring comfort to those in mourning. To top all of this off, having foliage plants indoors
helps reduce indoor air pollution so we can breathe better! Studies at NASA have shown us that having two medium sized foliage plants every 100 square feet (or so) is enough to help remove indoor air pollutants such as benzene, formaldehyde and many others. And of course, replaces those pollutants with good old oxygen. So, now you’re saying, “OK, sounds good, but I can’t grow anything indoors.” Well, believe it or not, some of the best air purifiers, are also so of the easiest plants to grow indoors. Dieffenbachia, African violets, dracaena, ficus, sansevieria, pothos and philodendron, spider plants, spathiphyllum, rubber plant and palms are all at the top of the list for good air purifiers as well as easy to grow indoor plants. Don’t forget cast iron plant, Christmas cactus, lucky bamboo, Chinese evergreen and jade plants are easy to care for plants as well. And of course, my favorite easiest to care for indoor plant, zamioculcus zamiilfolia, or commonly
known as the “ZZ Plant.” At the beginning I mentioned a trip to the Caribbean. Well, if you want to stay Ron Wilson local, just hop In the in the car and garden head to the Krohn Conservatory! As soon as you walk indoors, you will start to smile, you’ll take a deep breath (and enjoy it), and then you’ll enjoy a truly ‘ feel good winter experience’ as you stroll thru the tropical jungles (and desert), located right here in our own backyard. Okay, in Eden Park. Indoor Plant Care Note: When watering your indoor plants, use luke-warm to warm water. Over time, using cold water can actually have detrimental effects on the root systems and growth rates of your potted plants. Ron Wilson is marketing manager for Natorp’s Inc.

It’s time to take the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics It’s time to get ready to be Freezin for a Reason at one of the coolest events in the Greater Cincinnati area. The Polar Plunge to benefit Special Olympics programs in Kentucky and Ohio will return to Newport on the Levee Saturday, Feb. 6. Plungers raise a minimum of $75 ($50 minimum for students 18 and under) and take the leap into a pool set up on the Newport on the Levee Riverwalk. The Polar Plunge features brave souls – many in crazy costumes – taking a dip into chilly winter waters to help support the Special Olympics mission of providing sports training and competition opportunities for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. The actual Plunge is only part of the event. The day includes a costume contest as well as the postplunge party and awards ceremony at Jefferson Hall in the Newport on the Levee Gallery Building. Anyone who wants to take the
plunge can pick up registration forms at Jefferson Hall at the Newport on the Levee, the Levee offices or the Comfort Suites Newport. Participants can also register online at http://events. soky.org/2010kentucky-ohioplunge, create their own Web page and raise money through the official Polar Plunge Web site. Participants can register as individuals or gather a team of friends, family or coworkers and register as a group. All participants receive the official Polar Plunge T-shirt, but can earn additional prizes for raising more money. Anyone raising a minimum of $250 will be eligible to win a Caribbean Cruise courtesy of AAA Kentucky. The top male and female fundraisers will be named King and Queen of the Plunge and receive King and Queen for a Day prize packages. This year the Plunge has added several new prizes and will award the Plunge Prince and Princess crowns to the highest fundraising
plunging begins at approximately 11:30 a.m. Plungers who wish to take part in the costume contest or who think they would qualify as the Plunge King, Queen, Prince or Princess must be registered before 10:30 a.m. to be eligible. In addition to the fundraising awards, prizes will be awarded to the largest university or school group, largest law enforcement group, largest corporate group, the top fundraising team and the plunger with the best costume. This will be the fifth year that the Special Olympics programs in Kentucky and Ohio have combined to organize the event. Last year, in the fourth year of the partnership the event raised a record $97,000 to benefit Special Olympics athletes on both sides of the Ohio River. The Plunge has raised more than $250,000 in the last four years alone and in its 10year history has raised almost $400,000 for Special Olympics programs.
Plungers between ages of 6 and 12. Afraid of the cold water? This year you can register as “Too Chicken to Plunge,” and raise money to support Special Olympics athletes just like the Polar Bears do. You receive a special Too Chicken to Plunge T-shirt instead of the Official Plunge shirt, but you are eligible for all additional fundraising prizes based on the total you collect. There will be a pre-registration for participants who want to avoid the lines on Plunge day. Pre-registration will be held at Bar Louie in the Newport on the Levee Gallery Building from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 4. Participants can turn in all money raised and gather fundraising awards prior to the event day. Day-of-event registration for the Polar Plunge begins at 9 a.m. in the Gallery Building at Newport on the Levee. Opening ceremonies, including the costume parade and costume contest, kick off at 11 a.m. and

We noticed they were having problems with a piece of equipment. Since problem solving is our background, we found the root cause and helped get the equipment running more eﬃciently.

HEALTH CARE BILLS ARE INCURABLY FLAWED “Seriously ﬂawed” is how the Family Research Council described both the Senate and House bills, since both, 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.” “…thehealthcarebillisfatallyﬂawedandassuchcannotbesupported,” writes Bishop RobertVasa of Baker, Oregon. 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.” All of the pending bills have 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. Abortion Funding Cardinal Justin Rigali of Philadelphia, who chairs the U.S. Bishops’ SecretariatofPro-LifeActivities,stated: “Bywhatright,then,andbywhat precedent, would Congress make abortion coverage into a nationwide norm, or force Americans to subsidize it as a condition for participating in a public health program?” The Cardinal concluded that the current legislation being proposed was “not acceptable.” In the House version, even with the Stupak Amendment, “Abortions are covered through private plans…The bill also requires the existence of at least one insurance plan that covers abortion ‘services’ in each state.Tax dollarsmaynotfundabortionsunderprivateinsurance,butthoseprivate planparticipantsarepayingforabortionthroughtheirpremiums,”points out American Life League, an uncompromising pro-life organization. Subsidiarity Even assuming that the moral deﬁcits in both the House and Senate bills could be remedied, which is impossible, there remains yet another very serious problem with the legislation. 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 Christianethicsaswellasinsoundpoliticalphilosophy. Thislongstanding 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.” InadocumentissuedjointlybyMostRev.JohnF.Naumann,Archbishop ofKansasCity,KS,andMostRev.RobertW.Finn,BishopofKansasCitySt. Joseph, MO, 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 we were able 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 inclinations 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 certainlyﬁndthispowerandcontrolintoxicatingandwouldbeunableto resist further advances in these dangerous policies.
