Without leaving their own school, high school juniors and seniors are earning college credit in classes taught by professors before they graduate. Both Northern Kentucky University and Thomas More College operate dual college credit classes in association with high schools where students earn grades toward graduating and also transferable secondary education credits good at Kentucky’s public universities.

Scouts team with businesses to recycle By Chris Mayhew

The three members of Girl Scouts Troop 257 of Cold Spring are hoping people keep putting thought into what should and shouldn’t end up in the trash can. The troop organized a recycling informational seminar for adults and a craft fair for children as the culminating event for their two years of work on the Gold Award project at the Campbell County Cooperative Extension Service office in Highland Heights Saturday, Feb. 6. The Gold Award is the highest achievement a Girl Scout troop can collectively achieve. The troop has spent two years working with about half the businesses in Cold Spring Crossing shopping center to recycle more.

The girls collected the recyclables from bins they put in the stores including Great Clips, Kohl’s, and the Original Mattress Factory. There are three members of the troop, and all of Cold Spring, Katy Haupt, 18; Demi Michael, 17 and Megan Bell, 16. The goal of the project is to get more people in the city and businesses in the community recycling, said Michael. “We’re trying to get people to keep doing it,” Michael said. The troop was able to get many of the participating businesses to put recycling bins in their back rooms for employees to use for recycling, she said. “We gave them a list of what things were and weren’t recyclable,” she said. With the help of their parents, they took the aluminum to be sold

in Newport. The money paid for the twohour recycling craft and informational event where Haupt, Michael and Bell gave a presentation about recycling for adults and led a craft activity for children using recyclables to make beads and picture frames. They also made reusable grocery bags out of used shirts. The reason they picked recycling as a Gold Award project was because people need to understand the importance of how they treat the Earth, Bell said. “We just thought that recycling is important,” Bell said. Anything like plastic bottles that can be recycled should be, because landfills are filling up and the trash can end up polluting the water, Haupt said. “If you don’t recycle everything gets dumped out somewhere,” she said.

A new campaign to educate adults about thefts and abuse of prescription drugs has led the Cold Spring Police Department to offer two public education seminars open to people across Campbell County. The idea for the free seminars is part of a national community education campaign: Rx OTC Awareness Week Feb. 22-28. The events are organized by police D.A.R.E. officers (Drug Abuse Resistance Education), school nurses and others and sponsored by MedSafe. Seminars will be Tuesday, Feb. 23, at St. Joseph Parish in Cold Spring and Saturday, Feb. 27, at Crossroads Elementary School. The events will include an opportunity for people to drop off their unused or expired medications so they can be disposed of properly, said Andy Hyett, an officer for Cold Spring Police Department who is also a D.A.R.E. officer. Geared for adults, there will also be an hour-long presentation by representatives of MedSafe about how people can guard against people taking their prescription medications using a safe the company sells, Hyett said. “They can destroy this safe and get at it, but then you know you have a big problem,” he said. Even family members sometimes are the people finding and then taking the medications, Hyett said. While not participating in organizing the classes, Campbell County Police Department Chief Keith Hill said he encourages people to take advantage of the programs. “We know that anytime you can get drugs out of your cabinet, that is one less opportunity for a child to get those drugs,” Hill said. Getting prescription drugs out of the home or properly protecting them is important, he said. People can have an accidental overdose and juveniles or others can use the prescriptions for an illicit purpose, Hill said. “You don’t want the availability of these prescriptions to fall in the wrong hands,” he said.

Rx awareness events

The Cold Spring Police Department and MedSafe have planned two Rx OTC Awareness seminars to talk about preventing the theft of and abuse of prescription drugs. The two seminars will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 23 at St. Joseph Church, 4011 Alexandria Pike, Cold Spring, and at 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 27 at Crossroads Elementary School, 475 Crossroads Blvd., Cold Spring.

Mystery painter baffles parishioners

When 15 paintings on rolled-up canvasses were found in the garage at St. Therese Church, years of searching began for two parishioners. Cindy Walker and Scott Froendhoff, who also serves as the church’s sacristan, have spent the past three years searching for information about the painter of the

15 paintings of St. Therese, angels and the church’s first pastor, Monsignor Borias Lehr. Each of the paintings, which may date back as far as the mid-1900s, are signed only with the initials REB. “Parishioners paid $1,500 for each of these paintings to be restored, but no one knows who painted them,” Froendhoff said. “It would be nice for that per-

son to have that recognition, even if they’ve passed away.” Froendhoff and Walker both came to St. Therese since childhood and both said they’ve followed every lead they’ve come across to find the identity of REB. Walker said she’s contacted art galleries, historians, museums and current and past parishioners, hoping someone had heard of REB. The church has no records of who painted the paintings, which are believed to be interpretation of postcards Lehr brought back from a trip to France in 1927. Pictures show that the paintings were originally displayed on canvasses glued on the walls in St.

Therese’s old building, which was rebuilt in 1963. It is unknown whether the paintings currently hanging in the church are the originals from the old building or if REB re-painted them when the church was torn down. After years of finding nothing, Froendhoff and Walker said they can’t bring themselves to quit searching. “I really think there has to someone out there, maybe a relative, who knows who this painter is,” Walker said. “Someone may have a painting signed REB hanging in their house right now.” Anyone who has information about REB is asked to call the church at 4411654.


Scott Froendhoff, the sacristan at St. Therese, points out the initial REB on a painting in the church. Scott and parishioner Cindy Walker have been searching for years to find out the identity of REB, who painted 15 painting that are hanging throughout the church.

Cold Spring native in fashion magazine By Chris Mayhew

Rachel Geiman’s modeling career is on display in a two-page spread of the February edition of Cosmopolitan magazine. Geiman, 19, of Cold Spring, is living in New York City, and is a 2008 graduate of Campbell County High School. “It definitely was a stepping stone,” Geiman said of the magazine appearance. The photos are on pages 62 and 63 as part of an article about wearing one piece of clothing within multiple styles, she said. Geiman said she often goes to sleep early each night after a full day of walking in the city from audition to audition in heels. A good night’s rest is essential, she said. “I have to be up and live-

ly, and you can tell, you can’t hide anything from the camera, even with makeup,” Geiman said. Upon the printing of the February Cosmopolitan, Rachel’s mother, Amy Manyet Geiman, delivered editions of the magazine to the high school and school district office in appreciation of their support of her daughter’s modeling aspirations before graduation. Amy said she especially wanted to thank Ginger Webb, the former principal of the high school, for her allowing Rachel to take her initial modeling opportunity, and all the teachers who were supportive of allowing her to make up any missed work. Amy owns Manyet Dance in Southgate, where people at the studio encouraged Rachel to take up modeling as a youth.

Rachel Geiman, a native of Cold Spring, works as a fashion model in New York City and was on pages 62 and 63 of the February edition of Cosmopolitan magazine. Photo courtesy of Wings Model Management in Cincinnati. Rachel has previously appeared in multiple teen magazines and is scheduled to appear in April edition of Seventeen magazine, Amy said. Rachel has always had a flair for fashion going back to when she would do things like putting pin curls all over her head and going to classes at Cline Elementary in Cold Spring and making a skirt out of men’s ties while in middle school. “She’s very independent, the day after graduation party she drove to (Los Angeles) with two girlfriends and spent four months living in apartment living all by herself,” Amy said. Jake Lang, owner of Wings Model Management in Cincinnati, has been working with Rachel since before she was 15. Wings has been in Cincinnati for 12 years, and specializes in finding young models and sending them to different places, Lang said. “She’s a beautiful girl,” Lang said of Rachel. “Basically we’ve sent her to (Los Angeles) to model, she modeled a bit in Thailand for two months, and now she’s in New York, and we’ve been trying to help her with acting. She’s an actor, dancer and singer as well.” Amy said she’s proud of her daughter’s success, but also because she’s maintaining good morals. “She’s very gutsy, and spiritually I think she’s done just a great job of staying grounded,” Amy said of Rachel. Geiman attends church every Sunday, teaches Bible school, and is producing her own worship music. She’s also coming home Feb. 24 to go to Guatemala with her father, Ken, who is leading a week-long mission trip through Lakeside Christian Church in Lakeside Park.

Sen. Katie Kratz Stine, RSouthgate, met with Dr. Hazel Barton and others from Northern Kentucky University on Jan. 28. The event, Posters at the Capitol, allows students and faculty from across Kentucky to show state lawmakers their research and its importance to the commonwealth. Barton, a microbiologist and NKU’s Ashland professor of integrative science, is focused on a bat disease known as White-Nose Syndrome. The fungus grows on bats’ noses, ears, and wings, disorienting them and causing them to die . As a result, several bat populations in the Northeast have disappeared. A similar wave in Kentucky and the surrounding area could result in an overpopulation of mosquitoes and other insects, the bats’ main food source. The state’s horse, cattle, and crops could be affected, and diseases like West Nile Virus could flourish in such a situation. Barton says that it’s very important for Kentucky’s cave visitors to decontaminate before entering our caves to prevent the spread of this disease. Barton, her staff, and students at NKU are receiving federal funds to study cave biology, including bats. PROVIDED

Meet the commissioner candidates By Chris Mayhew

Vying for the three Campbell County Fiscal Court commissioner seats are eight candidates including five Republicans and three Democrats. District 1 commissioner: Republicans Brian Painter and Mike Combs, both of Alexandria will face each other in the May 18 primary. The winner will face Democrat Michael L. Schulkens of Cold Spring in November. Painter said his goals include being more active on the jobs front in actively recruiting to the county’s manufacturing base, a commitment to lower taxes, and frugal spending. “My goal is to be a part of a commission that manages fiscal court spending with common sense to reflect the times we are in,” Painter said. Painter said he also wants to be the taxpayers’ storm water advocate for complying with federal water quality issues. Combs said he is a fiscal conservative who will bring big picture thinking business approach. Combs said he has the experience of doing more with less in a budget and focusing on core services and operations. The developments of Ovation in Newport and Manhattan Harbour in Dayton will increase the entire property assessments of the county from the current about $5 billion to $6 billion or more when completed, he said. The fiscal court has to create the proper governance philosophy including working on curbside appeal and addressing road access for the sites, he said. “To me there’s nothing that can be more impacting on the county than those two projects that are proposed,” Combs said. Schulkens said his focus will be maximizing rev-

Combs Garrett enues and resources of the county and also making county government more accessible by having regular times people can meet him in locations throughout the county. One example is the county can partner with cities to share resources like paving equipment and improving recreational opportunities by promoting not only the existing county-run golf course, sports complex and fields, but also the only public swimming pool in the county operated by the City of Newport, he said. “We need a new and innovative approach to funding and programs,” Schulkens said. District 2: David Otto of Fort Thomas, a Democrat and the incumbent since 1986, will face the winner of the May Republican primary from Peter Garrett of California and Jerry Schmits of Dayton. Otto said he pledges to keep services at current levels in the areas of police, fire and drug enforcement, health care programs and facilities, senior citizen programs, affordable housing programs, environmental, river and stream quality, public transit and roads, and green space and recreation. Reductions in those services would seriously erode the quality of life in the county, Otto said. Otto said he wants to find ways to get people back to work and continue the partnership with the Campbell County Economic Progress Authority and efforts to promote and work with NKU’s Informatics department to create jobs of

Otto Painter the future. Otto said one of his suggestions for the authority’s president, John Austin, is to create a staffed phone line to answer questions from businesses having issues with paying their taxes or dealing with government in rough economic times. “I think our goal is to concentrate on existing businesses that we have in Campbell County to try to make sure that we keep them viable,” Otto said. Garrett, who ran against Otto in the 2006 election, said he’s running because it’s time someone represents the entire county. “We’re spending millions of dollars in new building construction for a new county building when people in the south end of the county can’t even access water,” Garrett said. Garrett said he already successfully pushed for a new water-fill station by lobbying the county’s soil and water conservation district to get a new water pump for the California Crossroads area, and that he drives the county every day from California to Newport and knows the needs of the county. Schmits said his decision to run was strongly influenced by closely watching the 2006 District 2 campaign and how both those

Rechtin Schmits candidates behaved. Schmits said the county needs new leadership, and to succeed, the county has to reinvent itself. “NKU could be the center, it could the hub of technology in the state of Kentucky and I think that it’s incumbent upon us as commissioners to work with people within this region to make sure this happens.” Schmits said it’s going to be required for commissioners to have a broader set of business skills, and he’s been responsible to board of directors for multi-million dollar budgets through his work as a product marketing and development manager. District 3 Ken Rechtin of Newport, the Democrat incumbent, will face Republican challenger Robert Usleaman of Newport in the November general election. Rechtin said the name of the fiscal court implies the responsibilities are financial in nature, and that he wants to continue his the financial responsibility he has exercised since first being elected in 2002. “I have not always agreed with the other commissioners and the judgeexecutive, in fact I voted against the last budget that was presented to us,” he said.

Schulkens Usleaman Rechtin said he was concerned the revenues in the budget were over-stated and there were further expenditure reductions that could have been made. Usleaman said wants the county to work harder on job creation and also in promoting business, educational and industrial centers already in existence. The county should also work more closely with NKU and cities to find if there is overlap on planning

five to seven years out and work together. Relying on his experience on the Newport Board of Education, Usleaman said he wants to lower property tax rates while expanding services and reviewing programs for costs and benefits to the county. “I think it’s going to be really bad financially for the next couple of years,” Usleaman said. “We need to keep costs down. We don’t want to cut services, and we don’t want to raise taxes.”

College courses in the high schools By Chris Mayhew

Helping Haiti


Grandview Elementary School held Hundreds for Haiti in celebration of their 100th day of school, raising money to help earthquake victims. The school collected about $500 to donate to relief efforts. Sarah Wartman's kindergarten class practices their math skills by counting the pennies they brought in.


Fourth-grade teacher Katrina Gulley and some of her students show some of the money that Grandview students brought in to help the people in Haiti.

HHS robotics team partners with NKU By Amanda Joering Alley

The robotics team at Highlands High School is following the district’s motto and taking their work to the next level. The team recently formed a collaborative partnership with the engineering department at Northern Kentucky University. “This partnership is a win-win for both Highlands High School and NKU as it provides the robotics team access to the engineering capabilities of NKU, while the NKU engineering department gains access to the FIRST Robotics competition that is sponsored by Procter and Gamble,” said Ed Long, assistant coach of the team. For about 10 years, students at Highlands have been participating in the FIRST Robotics program, building robots from scratch to submit into a competition.


Johnson Geography Bee winner Colin Ginter poses for a picture with the bee's guest moderator David Orne after beating finalist Chay Rust in the championship. Ginter will advance to the next level of the competition, a written examination to determine state competitors. PHOTO SUBMITTED


During the years the team has worked with professors Seyed Allameh and Brian Warner from NKU, going on visits to the engineering department and attending workshops at the university, Long said. Since the FIRST Robotics program recommends that high schools pair up with local universities, Long said he thought NKU would be a perfect fit. Starting next year, NKU students will be able to get class credits for working with the team at Highlands through a capstone program, Long said. “The students will get to help younger students and utilize their engineering skills at the same time,” Long said. The NKU students will also be able participate in the robotics competition, which includes thousands of teams from various countries.

Without leaving their own school, high school juniors and seniors are earning college credit in classes taught by professors before they graduate. Both Northern Kentucky University and Thomas More College operate dual college credit classes in association with high schools where students earn grades toward graduating and also transferable secondary education credits good at Kentucky’s public universities. Emily Hegner of Alexandria, a junior at Campbell County High School, is taking her second inschool class of the school year – world religions. Hegner said she thinks taking the college-credit classes have helped her with other school work because she’s had to sharpen her study skills. “I think that it is just a great opportunity to get used to college, and it really has prepared me for what to expect,” Hegner said. Hegner said she’s planning on taking advanced classes and also more college credit classes, but not Advance Placement (AP) classes because there’s no guarantee of receiving college credit. Students want to take rigorous classes, both AP classes and dual credit classes, said Tracy Florimonte, a CCHS employee in charge of coordinating the dual credit programs. “We have been able to maintain excellent AP programs while offering the dual credit opportunities,” Florimonte said. “Our programs have not suffered from

NKU’s program

There are 425 students in NKU’s School-Based Scholars 4+1 Program in Northern Kentucky School districts for the spring semester. Districts involved in the program include: Bellevue, Boone County Schools, Campbell County Schools, Dayton, Erlanger-Elsmere, Kenton County Schools, Newport and the county school districts in Pendleton and Grant counties. The cost per class for the fall semester is $175. For information about enrollment standards and other information visit NKU’s Web site at scholars.php. Source: Jeff Fox, coordinator of NKU’s School-Based Scholars 4+1 Program this.” The dual credit programs provide a great opportunity for students to experience college classes at a reduced cost as well as earning high school credit, she said. CCHS offers both NKU’s and Thomas More’s dual credit programs. High schools have one major concern about the program, said Jeff Fox, coordinator of NKU’s “School-Based Scholars 4+1 Program.” “Their big concern is that we’re not competing with AP, and we’re not,” Fox said. “We’re complementing it.” NKU has about 18 public school districts involved in the program, he said. Campbell County Schools has the second most students enrolled in the program (72 in the fall and 58 this spring), following only

Kenton County Schools in number of students in NKU’s program, Fox said. Fox said he taught public speaking at Newport Independent Schools last year where the students go to the Newport Adult Learning Center so they feel they’re getting more of a college experience, he said. The Bellevue, Dayton, Silver Grove school districts are involved in the program, and because the schools are smaller students are bused to Bellevue for the classes, he said. Parents especially like NKU’s program because they save money on their children going to college, Fox said. It’s possible by taking both AP classes and classes through the School-Based Scholars program to have almost enough credits to be a sophomore when they enter their first year of college, he said. Students can take one class on NKU’s college campus and four or more at their high school, that’s where the “4+1” part of the program name comes from, Fox said. Students will often opt to take their class at NKU in the summer session, and unless they tell someone in the class, they’re the only ones in the classroom who know they are a high school student, Fox said. The 100-level general studies courses taught in high schools include the subjects of American politics, music appreciation, art appreciation, public speaking and world religions – a philosophy course, he said. “Usually, to take full advantage of the program they’ll take one class each semester of their junior and senior year,” Fox said.

Brossart sends 1st wrestler to state By James Weber

Colton Boesch was part of Bishop Brossart’s first football playoff team last fall. Boesch achieved another first for the school last week, becoming the first Brossart wrestler to qualify for the state meet. Boesch will represent the Mustangs at the state tournament in Frankfort, which runs Feb. 18-20. He had been battling an elbow injury in recent weeks. “He had a good tournament,” head coach Clint Bell said. “He showed he is over his injury.” Boesch finished fourth at 152 to earn a state spot. He enters the state meet with a 27-12 record. His first match will be against a champion from another region. Bell said Boesch’s key match in the regional was a win over Simon Kenton’s Weston Ott, who had beaten Boesch during the Northern Kentucky Athletic Conference tournament. Boesch eventually beat Dixie

Feb. 8 was a special night for Casey McDaniel. The Newport High School senior is hoping for even better days for himself and the team when the postseason begins at the end of February. McDaniel scored his 1,000th career point against St. Henry as part of a 31point, 15-rebound performance in a 67-56 win over the Crusaders. The millennium milestone came on a layup off a pass by senior guard DaMarkco Foster. “That was exciting. I’m glad I got it,” said McDaniel, a 6-foot-5 center. “I’ve had a nice career at Newport. I want to finish off with a bang, win districts, go to region and do well there.” McDaniel is a three-year starter for Newport. “The other night was a really good game for Casey,” Newport head coach Aric Russell said. “He really asserted himself. He’s such a good young man. I’m really happy he got to 1,000. To work as hard as he does he’s a really good student. Good things happen to good people, and he’s a good kid.” McDaniel beat Lloyd 7344 Feb. 10, then won two games over the weekend to improve to 22-4.

The Lloyd game showed the Wildcats’ balance. McDaniel had 11 points. Senior Cody Collins had 11, senior Brandon Tucker 13, and Foster led all scorers with 17 points. Newport had 17 assists on 31 field goals. The first half, Newport shot 17-of-25 from the field (68 percent), including 4-of8 from three-point range. McDaniel, plagued with foul trouble, had four points in the half. Five other Wildcats had between six and nine. Newport had 63 points after three quarters before reserves finished the game. “We work the ball real well,” Russell said. “That’s a big strength of our team; we pass the ball. Normally, they don’t care who scores. That’s a real good thing for our team.” Said McDaniel: “Any player in our starting five can score 20 a night. Anyone can step up. Tonight, everyone was around double figures, and that’s how we want it.” For the year, McDaniel is Newport’s leading scorer at 13 points per game. Foster and senior Anthony Luther are also in double figures. The Wildcats have lost just once since a home defeat to rival Newport Central Catholic Jan. 8, and that was a three-point loss to DeSales in the All “A” state tourney. Newport plays at Bishop


Newport senior Casey McDaniel reaches out for a rebound during Newport’s 7344 win over Lloyd Feb. 10. Brossart Feb. 18 and needs to win that contest to have a shot at the Northern Kentucky Athletic Conference title in Division II. Ultimately, the Wildcats’ goal is to get to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1962. The trail starts against Bellevue in the 36th District semifinals, a game Newport should be heavily favored in. A win would qualify the Wildcats for the Ninth Region Tournament. Newport is 15-3 against Ninth Region teams, with two of the losses coming to

2009 state champ Holmes. Russell is stressing defense as the key to success in the postseason. “We really tried to focus on our defense,” Russell said. “We know in order to do well in districts and regionals, we got to play better defense.” McDaniel wants a strong postseason to finish his career. “Going to Rupp (Arena) would be above everything, the 1,000 points or the All ‘A’,” he said. “That would be huge.”

After a long late-season break between games, the Campbell County High School girls’ varsity basketball team earned its 12th win of the season. The Camels defeated Bourbon County 39-28 after weather postponed the team’s final two home games of the season. The Camels had a 10-day layoff between games due to the weather postponements. “It certainly wasn’t pretty,” said head coach Ed Cravens of his team’s win over Bourbon County. “We were very rusty.” With the win, the Camels improved to 12-8 on the season. The final two home games of the season were snowed out, including the girls’ Senior Night. The team’s seniors were honored with the varsity boys’ seniors on their Senior Night. The Camels have not lost a home game this season. Campbell County will finish the regular season with road games against Dixie Heights and Ryle. “You couldn’t ask for a better opponent in the last game,” said Cravens. “That game will show us our strengths and weaknesses heading into the postseason.” One weakness that the Camels have been working to improve has been its scoring in the paint. Cravens has dubbed the area the “Purple Zone” and would like to see more consistent production in the area. “We’ve got to be able to score closer to the basket,” he said. “We need to work on finishing in the ‘Purple Zone.’” One of the keys to the Camels’ success this season

has been scoring depth. Peters leads the team with more than 13 points per game. The senior center has been the focus of many opponents’ defensive game plans. Her teammates have stepped up to make opposing defenses pay for collapsing on the center. “We have played together pretty well as a team,” Cravens said. “We have always been able to have one or two players step up and score if the other team tries to shut Brianna down.” Anne Marie Dumaine, Taylor Griffin, and Kelsey Miller have stepped up when needed to boost the Camels’ offense. Even on nights when the offense has struggled, Campbell County’s defense has led to victories.

“Our defense has kept us in some games when our shots weren’t falling,” Cravens said. That was certainly the case in the ugly win over Bourbon County. Cravens hopes his team can knock off the rust and get back in rhythm heading into the postseason. The Camels drew Brossart in the first round of district play. They will try to avenge an earlyseason loss. The Camels lost at Brossart, 52-49, Dec. 12. They want to pick up the win when it matters the most. That game was the only Tenth Region loss for the Camels this season. “We think we can win the Region if we can get through district play,” Cravens said.

New clock at court building

The solicitation of funds by Judge-Executive Steve Pendry, from the public, in order to pay for a new clock at the new Campbell County Fiscal Court building in Newport is nothing but a ploy to make the voters think the fiscal court is tightening their belt when it comes to spending taxpayer’s money. This ruse is seen for what it is; an election ploy to make the fiscal court look like they are conservatives. $30,000 plus for a outside clock when they just spent $14,000,000 for a unnecessary new building while the offices in Alexandria sit vacant.

The present fiscal court never let it hamper them from spending foolishly during a recession and raising taxes every year. Since Steve Pendery was elected 12 years ago, he has increased taxes more than 50 percent. Don’t take my word; check your own tax records. We need a complete overhaul of the fiscal court make-up. Anyone can tax, but can they offer leadership. I am for replacing the entire fiscal court makeup come November 2010. Respectfully, Lloyd Rogers Ridgeway Crossing Alexandria

CH@TROOM Last week’s question

At which Winter Olympic sport do you wish you could excel? Which Winter Olympics sports do you like to watch? “I was watching the ‘curling’ competition last winter Olympics and really enjoyed it, so that would be a sport I would like to excel in. Other sports I will watch are skiing, luge, snowboarding. I like almost all of the winter sports! Let the games begin!” N.C., Florence “I don’t actually watch much of the Olympics – summer or winter – although I’d be happy to excel in any of these sports.” J.H. “Since I do not know how to ski, cannot even stand on ice skates and am as graceful as a hippopotamus, I would like to do the ski jumps that include airborne flips and do a couples ice-skating competition. I would even settle for a silver medal. GO USA!” G.G. “Bobsled.”


“At which winter sport do you wish you could excel? That would be downhill skiing. I remember going to Perfect North slopes years ago when our kids were little, and I couldn’t even manage the kiddy runs! Which Olympic sport do you like to watch? That would be ski jumping. I sometimes wonder how a person can muster the courage to do that the very first time. There doesn’t seem to be any way to ‘ease into it.’ It’s all or nothing.” Bill B. “I’d love to be able to ski, although I’ve never tried to. Probably because I know with my lack of coordination, I’d be the one who would break his leg. “My favorite winter Olympic sport is the luge. Tobogganing down a frozen tack going 90 mph looks like a lot of fun, although it could be hazardous to your health.” R.L.H. “It would have to be curling! The precision, grace and technical skill required for this challenging sport are fascinating. Plus the excitement of the huge fan base and the tension in each match are overwhelming. To stand on the center podium with a gold medal for curling draping gracefully around my neck would be an awe-inspiring, life-changing event for me!!! How much more pride could one American endure? ‘Nuff said ...” M.M.

Next question: Do you plan to fill out your census form? Send your response to with “chatroom” in the subject line. “I wish I could excel at ski jumping. It would be a thrill to soar through the air as the Olympians do. I enjoy watching hockey.” R.V.

Teacher swap

“I am a big ‘winter games’ fan. I love the ice hockey, downhill skiing and the luge. “I would love to be a great skier and really enjoyed the skiing I did when I lived in the east. Moving ‘inland’ meant the slopes were no longer convenient and it changed all that.” M.A.M. “I would love to be a great ski jumper and compete in the Olympics. I actually tried it while in college in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where they have a ski jumping school. I only tried the smaller, training jumps, but it was exhilarating. I enjoy watching any of the skiing (jumping, downhill or slalom) and have even become a fan of the new snowboarding sports. It’s also great to see curling, which we don’t normally see in the U.S. Go for the gold America!” G.H. “I was watching the ‘curling’ competition last winter Olympics and really enjoyed it, so that would be a sport I would like to excel in. Other sports I will watch are skiing, luge, snowboarding. I like almost all of the winter sports! Let the games begin!” N.C. “I am looking forward to the Olympics. I think it’s fun to watch all of the athletes compete and get along. That’s something we could all learn a lesson from. I’ve never been very good at sports, but I always wanted to be able to ice skate. I just couldn’t do it. I even had the double-bladed skates when I was little. (Somehow, I was wild on wheels.) But, the sport I love to watch is ski jumping! I think it would be neat to fly in the air ... as it looks like they are doing. I’ll have to stick with the Wii games of the Winter Olympics and Wii Fit.” M.E. “I would like to excel at short track speed skating. I’ll try to watch all of the speed skating and the biathlon.” B.N.

Toyota deserves praise for being great corporate partner Toyota has been a great corporate citizen of Georgetown and Kentucky because of the way it has conducted its business in Kentucky and other American communities for more than 50 years. They’ve set an example for other companies to follow. In the nearly 25 years since Toyota chose Georgetown as the location for its largest North American plant, the company has been a model corporate citizen. The Georgetown facility now manufactures engines in addition to automobiles, all part of a $5.3billion investment in the commonwealth. Since 2005, all of the Georgetown site’s waste has been recycled or re-used, saving precious landfill space in the Bluegrass Region. Their on-site vegetable garden contributes more than one thousand tons of produce for God’s Pantry. In all, Toyota has given sponsorships or donations worth more than $37 million to local charitable groups with missions ranging from education to social services. In light of these facts, what community wouldn’t want Toyota? We’re lucky to have them in Georgetown, and I know other cities wish they had Toyota, too. Many Kentucky communities do

indeed benefit from Toyota’s presence, even if they don’t realize it. Toyota’s North American headquarters are in Erlanger, and the State Sen. company’s parts Damon center supplies Thayer distributors across the continent Community from Hebron. In Recorder all, more than guest 9,000 Kentuckwork directly columnist ians for Toyota. It goes much further than that, though. Ninety Toyota suppliers are located in Kentucky, creating more than 10,000 additional jobs. You’d be hard-pressed to find a Kentucky community that’s not affected positively by Toyota. Nationwide, more than 200,000 have jobs tied directly or indirectly to Toyota, thanks to its 350 U.S. suppliers. The true measure of a person – and likewise, a company – is made when adversity tests them. Toyota is being tested now. It is my hope that the company will emerge stronger than ever. I’m proud to have Toyota in my com-

Sea Scouts fishing for members By Jason Brubaker


Randy Deitz and Chuck Hegland own 314 Cafe at 7704 Suite A on Dixie Highway.

New restaurant opens at Florence Elks Lodge

“Cotton Candy Randy” has opened a new restaurant in Florence. 314 Cafe is owned by Randy Deitz of Union and Chuck Hegland of Kenton County. Hegland also serves as the restaurant’s chef. Deitz also owns Main Event Concessions & Sundries located at his home. 314 Cafe is located at 7704 Suite A on Dixie Highway in Florence. It’s above the Florence Elks Lodge. It serves lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. The new restaurant opened Dec 1. It serves American fare including chicken, fish, burgers, catfish, gravy cheese fries,

fried pickles, hot wings and entree salads. Alcohol is served too. Deitz said business at 314 Cafe so far is “progressing. It’s getting better each week.” 314 Cafe has eight televisions. “We’re not trying to be a sports bar per se but it looks like during basketball season you can’t help but promote wings and stuff for UK basketball,” he said. Deitz still plans to open the Tully’s Tavern restaurant at Old Union Road and U.S. 42 in Union. But he said he is looking for a partner. Deitz said Tully’s Tavern would be Scottish theme but it would still be American fare with a touch of Scottish fare.

whether in sailboats, canoes or kayaks. The scouts learn about all aspects of boating, and must pass a swim test. “Safety is paramount and we take every step possible to ensure we’re all taking every precaution,” said Weber. During the spring and summer the scouts also occasionally take longer outings, having visited the Bahamas once to do some sailing, as well as the Naval Station in Norfolk, Va., where they toured a nuclear-powered submarine, an aircraft carrier, a destroyer and a battleship. “We’re able to do things that most kid our age don’t have the chance to do,” said 19-year old Tyler Weber, the group’s boatswain, or first mate. But the group is about more than just enjoying the water, said Tyler. “I think you learn really how to be a leader, and how to take the initiative to get things done,” he said. “Being part of this lets you learn about teamwork and solving

Tim Weber is trying his best not to keep a secret. “The motto for the Sea Scouts is ‘The best kept secret for 98 years,’ and I think it’s about time to change that,” said Weber with a smile. “I think we need to get the word out more to get more people involved, because it’s a terrific program.” Weber is the skipper of the Sea Scout Ship 717, part of the Boy Scout Troop 717 out of Lakeside Christian Church. The Sea Scouts, designed for kids ages 14-21, learn about everything nautical, from water safety, sailing and kayaking to boat maintenance and repair. Formed in 2005, they’re currently the only Sea Scout group in the Greater Cincinnati area. “We’d love to see more groups formed, because it really gives the scouts some great opportunities,” said Weber. “When kids get to be this age, their skills are changing and developing and this is a terrific way to challenge themselves and have a lot of fun in the process.” James Fruchtenicht, 15, agrees. He said he was looking for a way to continue in scouting after earning Eagle Scout rank, and found a home in the Sea Scouts. “We go sailing once a week, and that’s not something a lot of kids my age are doing,” he said. “It’s just a lot of fun, and you learn a lot of things you never thought you would at the same time.” Weber said the group currently has about 22 boats in its fleet, most of which have been donated. The scouts use the winter months to learn about maintenance and repair, while they spend the rest of the year hitting the water,

We’re all in this together by ourselves There are two states of aloneness. They are the physical state of being alone (solitude) and the emotional state of being alone (loneliness). Solitude is usually enjoyable and profitable. For those who are comfortable with themselves it’s a pleasant time to relax, reflect, recall emotions, read and enjoy nature. It’s an oasis in the desert of chatter and busyness. In periods of solitude we enjoy being with ourselves and can even travel inside via insight. Solitude helps us build a healthy life, refuels us to better walk in the world, and creates a balance. “If you can’t stand solitude, maybe you bore others, too,” notes an old adage. Loneliness, on the other hand, we perceive solely as a negative – though it needn’t be. If we don’t

know our inner self very well, loneliness can even frighten us. We fear the many imagined or real demons that live within us. Loneliness also tempts us to conclude that we are and will always be unloved, unconnected and rejected for who we are. Loneliness deceives us into thinking we are the only ones so afflicted. We fail to realize that everyone is lonely at times, or for long times. Every human is a one-of-akind person, and that’s both a burden and a glory. In his book on “Loneliness,” Dr. Clark Moustakis writes, “Efforts to overcome or escape the existential experience of loneliness can result in self-alienation. When man is removed from a fundamental truth of life, when he successfully evades and denies the terrible loneliness of individual

existence, he shuts himself off from the one significant avenue of his own growth.” What? Loneliness can help us grow? He’s trying to tell us that when we are thrown back on our own resources, then this is the time to find out who we are, of what we are made, and to struggle to generate the most wholesome person we can be. The key to ease the pain of loneliness is to discover how to relate to others. Yet, this can be complex. That’s because it requires honest communication of thoughts and emotions along with respect for each other as we really are, not as we pretend to be. Of all people who have ever lived, we have more opportunities today of reaching out to others than ever before. The Internet permits us to exchange information, pictures

and ideas with people around the globe. We can reach out to each other on social Web sites like MySpace, Facebook, Twitter and others. When this is done in a human and moral way, our opportunities for finding people with whom to relate increases tremendously. Of course, just as a knife can be used for good or evil – by a surgeon to heal or a criminal to rob or rape – so can our technology help us or hurt us. Technology can become a barrier, not a pathway, to friendship and relating when used by evilminded and manipulative people. It can likewise be an obstacle to relating when almost all of our attempts at friendship are over the Internet. One young man claimed he had many friends. But it turns out he stayed in his apartment com-


municating (?) with various Internet friends. Face-to-face conversation with individuals and groups didn’t exist. S o m e Father Lou thoughtful soliGuntzelman tude might help him realize the Perspectives real loneliness of his computer-life. “Even if you are a relatively happy person who relates easily to others and who has many close friends, you are probably still lonely at times,” writes author Ronald Rolheiser. Loneliness is indigenous to all humans. The antidote for loneliness is to embrace and accept it. As in homeopathy, the wound is healed by swallowing a bit of the toxin itself.

Minimum auto insurance might not be enough You’re involved in an automobile accident, the other driver is cited, and you rest easy when you hear he has insurance coverage. But, if that driver only has the state minimum auto coverage you could be in for a real shock. Although auto insurance is required in all 50 states, as you’ll see, those who only carry the state minimum can be doing themselves – and others – a great disservice. Mary Hedrick of New Richmond was hit by a driver who only carried that minimum insurance. “Some lady came flying across the median, hit

vehicle hit. Meanwhile, Hedrick’s medical bills come to about $10,000, while the other driver hit has even more injuries. Fortunately, Hedrick’s own medical insurance has been able to pay some of her medical bills, but as far as her now-inoperable car is concerned, that’s a different story. “The other lady that was hit, her car was newer than mine so they said she’s going to get the bulk of the money. I’m like, ‘How’s that fair?’ ” Hedrick said. The woman who caused the accident was cited by police.

another lady and she spun around and I proceeded to hit that lady,” Hedrick said. Hedrick, her son, and the other woman hit were all injured. The women were taken to the hospital. Hedrick called the insurance company of the woman who caused the accident. “They said, ‘Well, we have to get all the information and then we’ll go from there. She only has $7,500 worth of insurance,’ ” said Hedrick. Unfortunately, it’s going to cost more than $6,000 to repair just Hedrick’s car. There is even more extensive damage to the first

“I was so mad that I called her and talked to her. She doesn’t have anything. She says she’s filing for disability,” Hedrick said. ‘I said, ‘Well, that’s not my fault. I feel for you, but that’s not my fault. You’ve really done a disservice to me and the other lady that you hit,’ ” she said. Clearly, Ohio minimum insurance does very little to cover you in a crash. The $7,500 minimum property damage insurance often won’t even cover one car’s damage, let alone two. And the $12,500 medical coverage per person certainly won’t be enough if someone is severely injured.

So, if you have that insurance and are found to be at fault in an accident, you could be held personally liable once that insurance is exhausted. Only four other states in the nation require minimum insurance less than Ohio. Kentucky and Indiana both require double the amount of bodily injury coverage and $10,000 for property damage. The Insurance Information Institute recommends you carry at least $100,000 bodily injury protection per person and $300,000 per accident. It’s estimated one in six drivers doesn’t have ade-

Goetta while the getting’s good

Talk about a goetta-making day: This is it. We have almost 10 inches of snow on the ground and it’s still falling. Frank, my husband, is waiting to plow the lane after the snow s t o p s . I Rita When went out Heikenfeld to put bird Rita’s kitchen feed on the window ledges and to feed the chickens, the snow had drifted almost up to my knees. The herb garden is snuggled under a thick blanket of snow. When I came in, I pulled off boots, hat and gloves and sat on the woodstove’s hearth until I got toasty warm.

Rita’s goetta

Before I give you a recipe, I need to talk a bit about goetta. Everyone who makes it has their own “special” recipe and way to cook it. Good friend Don Deimling makes a delicious version and he cooks his in one of those free-standing electric roasters. I cook mine on top of the stove, while others use the oven or crockpot. First, you need to use pin-head/steel cut oats for most recipes, mine included. Dorsel pinhead oats are what I use.

More goetta recipes

Check out our Web version at for two of the most requested goetta recipes: Jim Reinhart’s and Bill Sander’s. Also find new ones from Maggie Hoerst, my daughter-in-law Jess’ Mom, “Dez” to the grandkids, and Dave Meiser. For even more goetta recipes and tips about goetta, log onto

Goetta trivia


Spoon standing straight up in goetta; cooked enough to pour into pans I find them at Kroger and most grocery stores should carry them. (Call 1-800626-0702 for a list of retailers near you). My German mother-inlaw, Clara, always made goetta in the fall from their own pigs. They used a bunch of different parts of the pig. But after they moved from the farm, Clara started using pork shoulder, with the bone in. Her recipe was simple, much like my sisterin-law, Claire makes today. My adaptation is a bit more involved, and so far has been a hit. The key here is to get fresh pork shoulder, sometimes called pork butt, from the butt of the shoulder with a nice layer of fat on it. Also, you really need to cook this on the stove a long time. When a spoon stands up straight in the mixture, it’s ready to pour in

the pans. 4 pounds pork shoulder 1 pound hot or regular sausage 10 cups water 3 generous cups finely chopped onions 1 teaspoon celery salt plus 4 ribs celery, chopped with leaves OR 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon celery salt 1 tablespoon salt 3 large bay leaves Pepper to taste 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning 1 teaspoon dried granulated garlic 3 cups pinhead oats Cut meat into several large pieces. Put in large, heavy bottomed pot with everything but pinhead oats. Bring to a boil and lower to simmer. Cook, uncovered and stirring occasionally, for


Rita’s fried goetta. at least two hours or until meat falls apart. Strain, and when meat is cool enough to handle, chop finely. Set meat and veggies aside and pour liquid back into pot. Add oatmeal. Bring to boil and lower to simmer. Cook, uncovered, stirring often, for one hour. Mixture will be thick. Add chopped meat and veggies back into pot. Simmer for another hour and half to two hours. You’ll know it’s cooked long enough when a long handled spoon stands straight up on its own without falling over. Don’t worry if it looks too thick. It has to be extremely thick to set up. Line three to four loaf pans with foil and spray foil. Pour goetta in and let cool to room temperature before putting in fridge to cool overnight.

I like to leave mine uncovered so a nice crust develops and it becomes easier to slice and fry. Then, you can keep it up to two weeks in the fridge, covered, or freeze for several months. To serve, slice and fry in bacon fat with bacon alongside. Or however you want.

Clara Heikenfeld’s goetta

Clara never measured, like many good cooks. Here’s as close as I can get to her recipe. 2-3 pounds pork shoulder with bone in 8 cups water 3 cups chopped onions 2 large bay leaves 1 tablespoon salt 1-2 teaspoons pepper 3 cups pinhead oats Follow instructions above.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, goetta has Germanic origins, but most people who live in Germany have never heard of it. Inge, my daughter-inlaw who was born and raised in Germany, said she didn’t have a clue as to what goetta was until she moved to Cincinnati. Yes, it’s definitely a Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky “thing.” A possibility about the name is that it comes from the German word “gote” or “gotte” which means peeled grain. The word became Americanized to mean “goetta,” since the ingredient you cannot do without when making it is pinhead oats. I make my mother-inlaw’s recipe using pork shoulder but have to admit, I still cannot replicate that elusive, absolutely addictive, flavor of Glier’s goetta.

Sutphin Family Foundation gives YMCA $25,000 grant for after-school programs The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati was recently awarded a $25,000 grant from the Sutphin Family Foundation to allow more Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati youth in families with financial challenges the opportunity of structured after school programs aimed at teaching new skills, fostering positive social growth and improving academic scores. The grant will be used for after school programs managed by ten YMCA branches - the Gamble Nippert YMCA, Richard E. Lindner YMCA, Carl H. Lindner YMCA, Melrose YMCA, Blue Ash YMCA, Clippard Family YMCA, Powel Crosley, Jr. YMCA, Clermont Family YMCA, and Campbell County YMCA. The YMCA will provides children with an after school environment that offers tutoring, mentoring, physical and nutritional activities, service learning, fine arts, and quality interaction with diverse children and adults. Grants and private donations make it possible. “Without assistance like the generous grant from the Sutphin Family Foundation, it would be very difficult to provide the much needed services our school aged After School Program provides. With 100 percent of our program participants receiving some kind of financial assistance it is absolutely critical that we pull from every available resource. The Sutphin Family Foundation Grant could not have come at a better time,” said Steve Sanders, senior program director at the Carl H. Lindner YMCA. For more than 150 years, the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati has been one of the region’s largest youthfocused providers of health, wellness, education, child care, sports and extracurricular activities. Annually through the YMCA, more than 79,000 local youth are engaged in learning the character values of caring, honesty, responsibility and respect. “Due to the current economic conditions we have all felt, the rise in parents needing to return to work, and the changes in voucher eligibility, the grant from the Sutphin Family Foundation is a true blessing. The YMCA is dedicated to supporting ALL families and their growing needs even with federal and state

funding cutbacks so support from the community is imperative and greatly

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR’S REPORT To The Mayor and Council City of Bellevue Campbell County, Kentucky Annual audit is available for public inspection at the Bellevue City Building, 616 Poplar Street Bellevue KY 41073 during normal working hours 8:00am - 4:30pm. Any citizen may obtain a copy for personal use at a cost of $0.25 per page. Copies of the financial statement only are available at no cost from the Office of the Clerk - Treasurer, 616 poplar Street Bellevue KY 41073. Mary H. Scott, City Clerk/Treasurer. I have audited the accompanying financial statements of the governmental activities, the business-type activities, each major fund, and the aggregate remaining fund information of City of Bellevue as of and for the year ended June 30, 2009, which collectively comprise the City’s basic financial statements as listed in the table of contents. These financial statements are the responsibility of the City of Bellevue’s management. My responsibility is to express opinions on these financial statements based on my audit. I conducted my audit in accordance with auditing standards and the standards generally accepted in the United States of America and the standards applicable to financial audits contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States. Those standards require that I plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. I believe that my audit provides a reasonable basis for my opinion. In my opinion, the basic financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the respective financial position of the governmental activities, the business-type activities, each major fund, and the aggregate remaining fund information of the City of Bellevue as of June 30, 2009 and the respective changes in financial position and cash flows, where applicable, thereof and for the year then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. In accordance with Government Auditing Standards, I have. also issued a report dated December 21, 2009, on my consideration of City of Bellevue’s internal control over financial reporting and on my tests of its compliance with certain provisions of laws, regulations, contracts and grant agreements and other matters. The purpose of that report is to decide the scope of my testing of the internal control over financial reporting and compliance and the results of that testing and not to provide an opinion on the internal control over financial reporting or on compliance. That report is an integral part of an audit performed in accordance with Government Auditing Standards and should be read in conjunction with this report in considering the results of my audit. The Management’s discussion and analysis information on pages 3 through 6 are not a required part of the basic financial statements but are supplementary information required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. I have applied certain limited procedures, which consisted principally of inquiries of management regarding the methods of measurement and presentation of the supplementary information. However, I did not audit the information and express no opinion on it. My audit was made for the purpose of forming an opinion on the financial statements that collectively comprise the City of Bellevue’s basic financial statements. The additional information shown on pages 33 and 38 is presented for the purpose of additional analysis and is not a required part of the financial statements. Such information has been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audit of the financial statements and, in my opinion, is fairly stated in all material respects in relation to the financial statements taken as a whole.
