BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Property tax fee starting to pay for 911 service By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

Campbell County has collected $1.6 million for its 911 service with a new property tax fee. Fiscal Court collected the money on property tax bills for the first time in 2013 after approving the fee Aug. 7. The $45 per commercial or residential unit property tax fee replaced a $3 per month landline phone fee. The county stopped collecting the fee on phone bills Dec. 31. The Greater Cincinnati/ Northern Kentucky Apartment Association filed a lawsuit against the county Sept. 12 al-

leging the Fiscal Court does not have the authority under Kentucky’s constitution to assess the 911 fee on property taxes. Arguments in the case are scheduled to begin in circuit court Friday, Feb. 21. Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine said the county has submitted written arguments to the court defending the creation of the tax fee. The county has collected about 95 percent of the revenue it expects to come in from the property tax fee’s first year, Horine said. The $1.6 million has already been transferred to the See FEE, Page A2

Seniors get fit, socialize inside gym Wellness center is well used By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS — Senior citizens work out their minds and bodies inside Campbell County’s gym-like wellness center. The county Senior Center and Wellness Center, 3504 Alexandria Pike, Highland Heights, is funded from the county’s payroll taxes. The wellness center gym was added to the existing senior center in 2005. It’s open from 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday-Friday. The cost to operate the center for this fiscal year ending July 1 is $241,000. The county will pay $181,000 of the cost, with the Northern Kentucky Area Development District adding $60,000, said Matt Elberfeld, the county’s finance director. More than 1,000 people use the center each year, Elberfeld said. Equipment inside includes treadmills, strength training for the upper and lower body, equipment to improve flexibility machines allowing people to remain seated while

working out. Al Yager of Highland Heights, said coming to exercise at the center has improved his blood pressure. “This is just as good as physical therapy.” Continuing physical therapy after a back surgery on his own led him to the center. “I come four times a week and I love it.” Ira Manley, 88, of Cold Spring, said he comes three times a week, lifts weights and uses the treadmill and strength training equipment. He likes the ability to sit down and exercise because it is more comfortable and less strain on his back. “When you’re my age you need to get the strength up, and this has been a a big help to me,” Manley said As Manley worked out Jan. 23, other men at the center yelled out his nickname of Big Blue. “I’m a very loyal (University of) Kentucky fan,” he said. Manley said he enjoys speaking with fellow UK fans, and the general atmosphere of the center. Highland Heights resident Stephen Richter was one of men yelling to Manley. He said

he comes into the center with friends three times a week. “After we do a little workout we sit here and socialize,” he said. “Besides the exercise, socializing is a big part of it.” With senior citizens working out on equipment, it’s also good to have two staff members watching how people are doing while exercising, Richter said. “They’re always watching to see and make sure somebody doesn’t get hurt on the machines,” he said. “They take their job serious and do a good job.” Wellness coordinator Sarah Manhardt works inside the center along with her assistant Veronika Brannock. Manhardt said more seniors typically start coming into the wellness center in January, February and March. “Especially in the winter months people who do a lot of stuff outside are looking for something to do and stay fit inside,” she said. Manhardt said she sees people socializing just as important as their exercise routines. “It’s just the friendship and connections that they make, it’s pretty awesome,” she said.

Ft. Thomas nearing purchase of fort By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

FORT THOMAS — The city is poised to take command of the oldest section of its namesake U.S. Army fort. The city is working with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs on an agreement to purchase the 10 officers’ homes containing 14 housing units on Alexander Circle. The houses are outside the limits of the cityowned Tower Park and behind the city-owned 1890 mess hall. “We think that the agreement that we have is the final agreement,” said Don Martin, city administrator. “We’ve agreed to the language.”

The homes will be sold to a private developer for renovation with deed restrictions forbidding the houses from ever being demolished, Martin said. The city created Tower Park after buying part of the fort in 1970. The U.S. Army fort was closed in 1964. Of the 10 houses, nine were among the first buildings built for the fort in 1888, according to a National Register of Historic Places Inventory nomination form from 1986. Building 1, the commandant’s quarters, overlooks the Ohio River 500 feet below, and was the first building constructed to serve as the

details the agreement contains. The federal government requested details from the city about any needs to remove lead paint and asbestos from the houses during renovation, he said. The cost of the lead and asbestos removal will be deducted from estimated $800,000 to $1 million purchase price. The city is working to line up developers to buy the houses. The city doesn’t want to own or be the entity renovating the homes, Martin said. The property includes a lot large enough to build another house, which will help attract a developer to renovate the houses. “We want to maximize the potential for profit for the developers so we can draw some interest,” he said. Debbie Buckley, the city’s renaissance manager/economic development director, said the houses are another key to revitalizing the Midway Business District across from the fort. The business district stretches from 1011-1312 S. Fort Thomas Ave., and includes parts of River Road, Midway Court and the streets in Tower Park, Buckley said. Obtaining the houses on Alexander Circle will be preserving the fort in reverse order since they are the oldest buildings, she said. “It’s the finest piece of the puzzle,” Buckley said. “We’re going to be able to have the entire historic district revitalized.” Mayor Mary H.

dispatch center. The fee was designed to bring in $1.8 million this year, but the county offered a 50 percent discount to apartment owners for the first year of the fee. Apartment owners took the county up on the offer, Horine said. “The good news is we have established a stable platform for funding 911 services,” he said. The fee collected from landlines had dropped from $1.68 million in 2010 to $1.49 million in 2012 as people began switching to mobile phones. The county supplemented the dispatch center’s 2012-13 budget deficit with $260,000. The estimated deficit for this year was going to be about $500,000 for the center if the property tax

fee wasn’t instituted, said Dale Edmondson, executive director of the dispatch Horine center. He said fee collection is just enough for the dispatch center to operate without a deficit. The center’s budget of $2 million includes funding from federal and state grants. The property tax fee has generated enough to maintain existing staffing and operations, which the landline fee would not have allowed, Edmondson said. “We’re at a point where we can actually cover costs,” he said.

NKY snow days delaying vacations By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

School closures because of extreme weather keep adding days to the end of the school year for Northern Kentucky students as districts plan how to make up lost class time. Through Monday, Feb. 3, Boone, Campbell and Kenton school districts have all missed nine days because of weather this year. Erlanger-Elsmere Independent Schools have missed five days, Beechwood and Bellevue schools have missed four days and Fort Thomas Independent Schools have missed two days. The state requires all schools to have a minimum of 170 instructional days and 1,062 hours of instruction, said said Connie Pohlgeers, Campbell County Schools spokeswoman. Campbell County Schools has a schedule with 10 makeup days. The district’s administrative team has already begun discussing potential options if more than 10 days of school are canceled, said Pohlgeers. “If we miss more than the 10 makeup-days built in the calendar, those options will be explored with the board if (and) when necessary,” Pohlgeers said.

The final day for students if all 10 makeup days are needed will be Thursday, June 5. Fort Thomas’ schools will makeup the two missed days at the end of the year, moving the last day of students from May 28 to Friday, May 30. Bellevue Independent Schools has six make-up days built into the calendar at the end of the school year, said Superintendent Wayne Starnes. The district’s four missed days so far makes Friday, May 23, the final day. If more than six days need to be made up they make-up days will be added onto the end of the school year calendar unless the board takes other steps, Starnes said.

more demands put on the schools. Among all the speakers, it might have the students’ voices that were the most stirring. “At the beginning of this year, my mom paid $500 for AP courses for my sister and me,” said Andrea Bomkamp, a student at Dixie Heights High School. “Some students take the AP courses but can’t afford the AP exams. The best educated students can’t just be the wealthiest ones. Every student, regardless of income, should have the opportunity to be valedictorian and take the higher level courses. Every student in my school and my state should be able to have the same opportunity for a quality education.” “Every instructional moment is critical.

The state’s lieutenant government and education commissioner, Northern Kentucky leaders and students rallied a crowd of more than 200 with the cry “Our children can’t wait!” at the Northern Kentucky Champions for Education Forum at Northern Kentucky University Jan. 29. The speakers issued a call for people throughout Northern Kentucky to meet “eyeball to eyeball” with their legislators to speak up in support of Governor Steve Beshear’s budget proposal to restore funding for education in Kentucky. “We’ve got to get folks to understand that nothing will happen unless they engage,” said Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson. “You’ve got to get engaged.” The forum was presented by the Northern Kentucky Education Action Team (NKEAT) and involved a list of organizations and speakers. Education Commissioner Terry Holliday praised the “phenomenal progress” Kentucky schools have made since passage of Senate Bill 1, the 2009 education reform legislation. However, he said, schools are doing the “difficult work” with even less money now from the state’s primary school funding source the SEEK formula than five years ago, before new academic standards were put in place and

FRANKFORT — After displaying one of the most dominant performances in the history of the All “A” Classic, it is now time to look forward for the Newport Central Catholic boys basketball team. They beat Cordia 72-61 in the championship game of this year’s tournament Feb. 2 in Frankfort. NCC had needed double-overtime to edge the same team in December. “It means so much to all of us and I couldn’t think of doing it with a better group of guys,” junior Drew McDonald said. NewCath rolled out to a 13point lead early in the second quarter and never allowed Cordia closer than eight the rest of the way and went on to win its second-straight title. NCC won its second straight state title and improved to 21-3. Head coach Ron Dawn won his third title, two with the boys team (2000) and one with the girls team at NewCath (2010). “They’re always nice,” Dawn said. “I can’t say one means anymore than the other. I know how much work everyone puts into this.” Junior point guard Zack Pangallo was selected tournament MVP and led five NewCath players in double figures with 15 points. Senior center Jake Schulte and junior forward Drew McDonald had 14 apiece, sophomore forward Ben Weyer added 11 and Tanner Moeves had 10. Junior Grant Moeves chipped in eight points off the bench. McDonald, Schulte and Tanner Moeves were also named to the all-tournament team. NCC faced a rare team with comparable size and arm length to them. Said McDonald: “They have height, but they don’t have meat on their bone so we knew we could be physical with them. We just had to be strong with the ball and finish strong.”

Pangallo’s tournament included 27 points in the semifinal win (78-49) over Lexington Christian. He was 11-of-15 from the floor and sank five 3-pointers. McDonald had 17 points and eight rebounds in that game as well as seven assists, and Schulte posted 11 points and 12 boards.

Schulte posted 18 points against Green County in the quarterfinals, leading the way in a 69-33 win. All 14 Thoroughbreds played in the contest. McDonald had nine points and 10 rebounds. NCC beat Owensboro Catholic by 21 in the first game, 60-39. Pangallo scored19 and averaged 17 for the tourna-

Harris leads bowlers to state lanes By James Weber jweber@nky.com

ALEXANDRIA — Jake Harris went from a junior on a seniorled team to a senior leader on a much younger team when the 2013-14 bowling season commenced at Campbell County High School. Harris led the Camels in both pins and morale as they repeated as Region 5 team champions Jan. 29 at Super Bowl Bellewood in Newport. The Camels will participate in the state championships Feb. 13-14 in Lexington. “It’s a big win, especially after what we lost last year,” Harris said. “It means a lot. It’s amazing.” The Camels defeated Scott, Newport Central Catholic and Highlands in the match-play portion of the tourney, which were best-of-five games in the Baker format. The Baker format involves five teammates alternating frames within one game. The Camels were taken to the maximum five games in their last two matches, includ-

ing the semis, but they kept their season alive with a 189160 win over NewCath in game five. “We have young kids, you never know how they will perform under pressure, but they did,” Harris said. “They stepped up.” Harris is on a personal roll heading into state. He was the regional singles runner-up as well and will compete at state for a solo title Feb. 13.

In the week leading up to the regional, he rolled two-game sets of 513 and 499 in the team’s final two regular matches, posting a 253 average in those four games. The 513 represented the best series in all of Northern Kentucky for the season. In the regional singles tourney, he was the top seed in qualifying after averaging 220 for five games. He lost in the final to Simon Kenton’s Casey Man-

gold, who shot a near-perfect 279 to Harris’ 183. He attributed his success to knowing the team was counting on him in crunch time, and he’s looking forward to a big state tourney. “We have to cut down our opens and keep our heads in it and come on strong,” Harris said. “We have to make our spares, including myself, and keep the young kids focused.” The Campbell girls team rolled to a perfect record in three years of Kentucky High School Athletic Association sanctioning, winning the regional title all three times so far. The Camels won the team championship, defeating NewCath, Scott and Newport in 3-0 sweeps. “We have five girls who have never really bowled at all,” said head coach Wayne Heringer. “They have improved so much since the beginning of the year. They kind of feed off each other. One starts doing better and the othSee BOWLERS, Page A6

Newport blazes path to state

Newport won 3-1, scoring 192 and 172 in two of its wins. Newport’s five Baker starters were Hoeh, senior Allison Willoughby, senior Katlynn Specht, seventh-grader Dominique Gallichio and seventh-grader Mirena Combs. Willoughby has been on the team for six years and Hoeh five. The Wildcats have two weeks to prepare after the regionals. The state tourney is Feb. 13-14 in Lexington, with the team play taking place on the 14th. “We have to work on picking up spares,’ Ball said. “You can’t pick up spares, you’re not going to win anything. We’ll play a few Baker games in practice and see what we can do.” Dayton’s Elizabeth Masminster qualified for state after reaching the regional singles final in Region 5. She lost 180-163 to Campbell County’s Allison McGlasson in the championship game. Masminster averaged 192 in qualifying.

NEWPORT — The main office at Newport High School is ready for a new accessory. Janet Ball had a regional runner-up trophy from the Kentucky High School Athletic Association in her arms and was looking forward to bringing it back to the school Jan. 29. Ball, the head coach of the Newport bowling program, directed her girls team to second place in the Region 5 team championships at Super Bowl Bellewood in Newport. It is the first time Newport has qualified as a team in the three seasons of KHSAA sanctioning. “This is wonderful for the school,” Ball said. “There aren’t many trophies at Newport, so for us to bring something home is nice.” The team result was sweet redemption for junior Katlyn Hoeh, who has qualified for the state singles tournament the past

The Wildcats won two matches before losing to defending regional champion Campbell County in the finals,159-128,147-144, 155-118. The matches were in the Baker format, which has five teammates alternating frames within one game. Newport defeated Pendleton County and Simon Kenton in the tournament. Against SK,

FRANKFORT — Bishop Brossart suffered a pair of heartbreaking losses in the All “A” Classic state tournament last week in Frankfort. The girls team fell 6058 to Danville in the quarterfinals Jan. 31, despite leading the first 29 minutes of the game. Brossart had a 13-point lead in the second half at one point (40-27). “This is the hardest one,” said Brossart head coach Josh Feldmann. “We had the goal to come down here and win the whole thing. They’re very upset and disappointed. It’s a game we had complete control of – timeout wise, possession wise and everything. We didn’t finish plays. It was a total team effort from the coaching staff down.” The Mustangs shot 56.8 percent from the field, including 61.1 percent in the second half, but made just 14 of 25 free throws. Senior Sarah Futscher led Brossart with 17 points, while senior guard Abby Stadmiller added 10 and sophomore forward Emily Schultz had nine points and 13 rebounds. Futscher also had nine rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot. Danville shot 38 percent for the game. “In the first half we stayed man and then we had to go to the zone, because we got in some foul trouble with our bigs,” Feldmann said. “We had to find ways to protect them. They did a good job when they reversed the ball and attacked gaps in our zone and get closer and get some fouls called.” The boys team lost in the first round to Paducah St. Mary Jan. 30, 38-36. St. Mary senior Wes Averill hit a basket as time expired. The shot came from Averill grabbing a loose ball off a deflection from Brossart senior Erik Rieger. “We actually had it defended pretty well,” said Brossart head coach Mike

Code. “We knocked the ball away, and not only that, we knocked it toward the sideline and at that point you kind of feel they’re out of sync and not going to be able to run what they want to run.” Brossart made just 6 of 17 free throws in the game, 1 of 6 in the final two minutes when the Mustangs had a four-point lead. “We’ve been a pretty good free-throw shooting

team all year, but we sure weren’t tonight,” Code said. “It was more than that. We can’t turn the ball over like we had in the final couple of minutes. This team has been very good at closing out games all year, but boy we didn’t close it out tonight.” Brossart was in the state tournament for the 11th time in 12 seasons, and fifth in a row.

Don’t let politicians divide and conquer Think of all of the things that divide us: politics, religion, abortion, racism, gay rights, environmentalism, capitalism, militarism, health care, marriage, taxes, war, wealth, poverty, education, ignorance, patriotism and egoism. We separate ourselves from people who disagree with us; and we disdain others with different ambitions, achievements or goals. Yet, our humanity unites us in ways that our differences cannot defeat. A Christian is more like a Muslim than a giraffe. A gay person is more like a straight person than a spider. A Republican is more like a Democrat than a goldfish.

We lose our ability to improve society in any way when we lose that “... simple attitude of listening to build on what Janice M. is common Wurtz (Cardinal MaCOMMUNITY radiaga, HonRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST duras).” This is where our government has come to; this is where we all have come to. We cannot even bear to listen to someone with a different opinion from our own. We have our own clubs, churches and news stations. The issues that divide us

call us to consider the simplicity of christian faith: “One cannot be a Christian without being a person first (with) ... traits and possibilities that are the patrimony of no one in particular but instead of humanity as a whole.” We all have needs in common, like food, housing, clothing, health and education. We also have fears in common, those problems that Cardinal Maradiaga describes as robbing us of sleep. We cannot share this deepest part of our humanity until we stop emphasizing our differences. Cardinal Maradiaga believes in a community that, “... helps to make life intelligible and dignified, and makes it a

community of equals without castes or classes, without rich or poor.” I believe in a United States of America that follows the same ideals. “... (I)f we are brothers, we must fight for establishing relations of equality and to eliminate their greatest obstacles: money and power ... consequently it is necessary to create a movement that can bring about such a thing…” Our common humanity should lead us away from the politics of division. We don’t need to be on the winning side; we need to be on the side of our neighbors, with politics, unions and philosophies all subordinate to people. We need what the Cardinal calls, “a simple attitude of listening to build on

what is common.” When a politician tells you that some other group doesn’t care about children, or old people, or the environment, it is a lie. All people desire to nurture and to protect children, to make sure that the elderly or infirmed are cared for, and want the earth to endure beyond our own lifetime. By insisting upon this basic truth from our politicians, we may begin to make some headway with policies that actually put people ahead of power and ambition. Janice M. Wurtz lives in Crestview Hills.

Use this month to start a healthier lifestyle In the United Health Foundation’s 2013 edition of America’s Health Rankings, the great state of Kentucky came in at No. 45 when considering smoking, obesity, physical inactivity and diabetes. (Ohio, by the way, is No. 40.) All of that should, of course, be disturbing to anyone. It’s especially frustrating for those of us in the medical profession who are spending more and more time strategizing on the best ways to educate the community on how to remove risk factors for heart and vascular diseases, as well as how to best manage the consequences. February is American Heart Month, yet another opportunity to remind people that by eating better, exercising and not smoking, the quality of your life will

Chocolate treats perfect for Valentine’s Day

I always get sentimental around Valentine’s Day. I remember being a kid in second grade, hoping I’d get some Valentine cards from my classmates, particularly Bobby Simpson. It was always fun watching my boys when Rita they were Heikenfeld that age RITA’S KITCHEN choose special cards for their Valentines. Times change, but the message is the same. Anybody can be your Valentine, so remember those folks who have lent a helping hand, or who may just need cheering up. Send them a funny kid’s card with a note and, if you can, share one of these recipes with them. Chocolate rules!

Cappuccino mocha pudding cake aka Upside down hot fudge pudding cake If you’re making this for kids or someone who doesn’t like coffee flavor, leave out espresso. The fun thing about this is you learn a bit of food chemistry: the hot fudge sauce is poured over the top of the cake batter, and as the cake bakes, the sauce turns to pudding and sinks to the bottom while the cake batter rises to the top! Cake: 2 cups flour ⁄3 cup plus 1 tablespoon cocoa powder

1

2 teaspoons instant espresso coffee powder 1 tablespoon baking powder 11⁄2 cups sugar 1 cup chopped toasted walnuts or other nuts (optional) 1 cup milk 4 tablespoons melted butter 2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9-inch by 13-inch pan. Whisk flour, cocoa, espresso powder, baking powder and sugar together. In separate bowl, whisk milk, butter and vanilla. Add this to dry ingredients and blend. Pour into pan. Pudding: 1 cup sugar 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed 1 ⁄2 cup plus 2 tablespoons cocoa powder 13⁄4 cup very hot water

Mix sugars and cocoa. Pour water over and whisk. Pour ever so gently and evenly over batter. Pudding will look quite thin but gets real thick as it bakes. Bake 30-35 minutes or until center is set and just firm to touch. Don’t over bake or you won’t get much pudding!

Diabetic chocolate lover’s cheesecake

I remember this recipe from friend and former colleague, Joanna Lund, founder of Healthy Exchanges. 1 pound fat-free cream cheese, room temperature 4 serving package sugar-free instant chocolate fudge pudding mix 2 ⁄3 cup nonfat dry milk

Rita’s chocolate pudding cake can be made with or without espresso powder.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD powder 1 cup water 1 ⁄4 cup Cool Whip Lite 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 chocolate-flavored piecrust, 6 oz.

Garnish: 2 (21⁄2-inch squares) chocolate graham crackers, crushed 2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips

Stir cream cheese with a spoon and add pudding mix, milk powder and water. Mix well using a whisk. Blend in Cool Whip and vanilla. Spread into crust. Sprinkle cracker crumbs and chips over top. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Serves 8. Each serving:

Calories 215, Fat 7 gm, Protein 26 gm, Carbs 644 mg

Easy chocolate fondue

This can be made ahead and reheated. Serve with chunks of fruit, cake, etc. I like to ladle some out for the kids before adding liqueur.

4 cups chocolate chips, your choice (approximately 24 oz.) 1 cup whipping cream, unwhipped 1 ⁄2 cup milk 1 teaspoon vanilla or 1⁄2 teaspoon almond extract Liqueur: Start with 2 tablespoons and go from there (optional) - I used

orange liqueur

Put chips, cream and milk in pan. Whisk over low heat until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in vanilla and liqueur.

Tips from readers’ kitchens

Tortellini soup update. Sandy, a loyal reader, made the tortellini soup with spinach and used a 19 oz. bag of tortellini and found it was way too much for the quart of broth. She decided to add more broth, which worked. Sandy asked me to specify how much tortellini to put in. I would say start with 2 cups tortellini and go from

there. John Pancoast’s eggplant casserole. Mary Lou K. made this healthier by substituting whole wheat crackers for the topping and low-fat yogurt for the whipping cream. “It was very delicious and would make a great main dish, though we had it with trout and considered it our vegetable and starch,” she said.
