New road will connect NKU to AA Highway Work expected to start in spring 2015 By Chris Mayhew

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS — Work on a new connector road from Northern Kentucky University to AA Highway may begin in spring 2015. The first phase will be a 1.7mile road from Johns Hill Road to Three Mile Road at Sunset Drive, said Nancy Wood, spokeswoman for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District Six Department of Highways office. The road will be a three-lane highway, with one lane in each direction, a two-way turn lane, curb and gutters and a multiuse path on one side of the road. The road will parallel Interstate 275 from Meadowview Apartments on Johns Hill Road, cut across campus behind the softball field, through two parking lots off Kenton Drive and behind the dorms on the north side of campus. It will then turn at Campbell Drive and go between Campbell Hall and NKU’s maintenance building before connecting to Three

Fueling curiosity purpose of fair By Chris Mayhew

Being fair and impartial and skeptical when considering facts and theories was the message Reiley Elementary School fifth-grade teacher Bonita Pack sought to deliver the 108 students who made science projects this year. The school, about a mile south of Campbell County High School, conducted a Feb. 7 science fair in preparation for a regional science fair at Northern Kentucky University Saturday, Feb. 22. Each school in the area is able to pick two representatives for the regional fair, Pack said. The first and second place winners for fifth grade, Alyssa Baker and Emma Rice, both of Alexandria, will represent the school at the regional science fair. The goal of the fair is to spark the students’ curiosity, Pack said. “It’s a real world thinking process that I just think is important, just the critical thinking and writing skills,” she said. Students are encouraged to find questions they want answered as the basis for a science experiment because that

fuels their interest, she said. “We want them to be lifelong learners,” Pack said. “That’s part of our goal.” Rice, whose project came in second place for fifth grade, said she has dry skin and decided to test hand lotions. She used dishes of gelatin to test the length of time different hand lotions last and moisturize. “The Jello is acting like your

Rice hypothesized denser lotions would last longer. “I concluded my hypothesis about the density was correct,” See FAIR, Page A2


FORT THOMAS — There are 1,146-acres of wooded land in the city, and resident Bert Thomas wants people to consider preserving most of those trees. Thomas, chairman of the Fort Thomas Forest Conservancy, said he founded the nonprofit in 2005 to preserve as many trees in the city as possible. “Our mission is to protect the forested hillsides and remaining green space in Fort Thomas, and there is a lot of it,” Thomas said. Fort Thomas’s 1,146 acres of forest is the largest amount of wooded acreage of any city in Campbell County, according to the 2008 Campbell County For-

The conservancy is close the signing of its first conservation easement with the city to preserve 6.5 acres of Rossford Park in the north end of the city, Thomas said. The agreement will make the conservancy responsible for maintaining the area of the park in the easement area, but the city will still own the land, he said. The idea is to get rid of honeysuckle and other invasive plant species and plant native plants and trees.

Mile Road at Sunset Drive. The state is waiting for federal approval of the environmental impact of the road before proceeding with right-ofway acquisition and utilities relocation, she said. There is $17.1 million available from federal earmark funds to pay for the project, Wood said. The project remains in the early stages of design, the only part of the project paid for so far. There is no timetable for a second phase of a 1.83-mile connector road downhill from Johns Hill Road to the AA Highway in Wilder, she said. For NKU, the positive impacts of the project of improved access outweigh the negative impacts of taking some parking spots and cutting through the back edge of the campus, said Larry Blake, assistant vice president for facilities. “What it does is get traffic from the middle of our campus to the perimeter,” Blake said. People now have to walk across Kenton Drive from parking and dorm areas – a busy street cutting through the middle of campus, he said.

was surprised to see large portions of formerly forested area along Memorial Parkway gone because of development. Many people are surprised to learn there is so much forested area in Fort Thomas, and much of it can be seen from the shores of the Ohio River looking across into the city, he said. The city’s northern boundary includes four miles of forested hillside along the Ohio River. The conservancy does own and was willed 3.5 acres of forested property on Burnet Ridge near the Highlands High School campus, Thomas said. The foundation also maintains a model nature garden with native trees

and plants in Tower Park next to the Fort Thomas Military and Community Museum. The conservancy is set up as a land trust, and can hold land easements in perpetuity or own land, he said. Working with, and not against, land owners is the goal. Property owners with a conservation easement can still own, will and even make improvements and develop some of the property. “You’re agreeing to preserve it for you and your grandkids,” he said Information about the Fort Thomas Conservancy is available at

A Forest Quality Assessment was prepared in 2008 by Northern Kentucky University’s Center for Applied Ecology, now called the Center for Environmental Restoration. The study found 39,781 acres of forest in the county. Municipalities sand the forested acres inside city limits: » Fort Thomas – 3,661 total acres: 1,146 forested acres, 31 percent. » Alexandria – 3,495 total acres: 992 forested acres, 28 percent. » Cold Spring – 2,954 total acres: 981 forested acres, 33 percent. » Wilder – 2,557 total acres: 692 forested acres,


percent of students created projects this year, said Principal Susan Rath. Participating in the science fair is mandatory for fifth-grade students, but optional for all other grades. There were even a few kindergarten and first-grade students who created projects, Rath said. “We really want to push science and math and the scientific process, and I think having it prepares them for middle school,” she said.

William Oliver, a retired NKU chemistry teacher and one of the community judges, said it is important for students to start learning about science at an early age. Students need to understand how writings and ideas presented in the media and on the Internet are sometimes false or goofy. Oliver said he was impressed by student projects about how colors affect the absorption of heat, and multiple food testing experiments. One

fifth-grader compared brands of root beer by setting up a panel and doing blind tastings to track results. The root beer experiment showed an ability to think creatively, he said. “The more they do science and understand the scientific method the better off we are as a society whether they become scientists or not,” Oliver said. “One should always be skeptical of glib explanations.”

To make up for lost parking, NKU will eventually expand the parking garage off Kenton Drive, Blake said. The new road will cut off access to Campbell Hall, and the university is working to come up with a plan to reconnect part of Campbell Road, via a bridge or some other way, to the new connector road and maintain road access to Campbell Hall, he said. For the state, the biggest issue is approval of

the federal environmental impact, Blake said. No right-of-way acquisition or utility work can start until the environmental impact is approved. The state has kept NKU informed about the project’s progress, Blake said. “We’re very very supportive,” he said. “We’ve talked through the rightof-way acquisition.” It’s expected the environmental impact will be approved in time to do utility relocation work this fall, Blake said. For the community and NKU, the eventual benefit once the road is complete

from Three Mile Road to the AA Highway will be easier access to either bypass or get to campus, he said. “I think it will have a huge impact on U.S. 27 and Highland Heights in general as far as traffic is concerned because some of the neighborhoods will be able to route away from campus,” Blake said. “And it will be another route into the Bank of Kentucky Center to draw people off U.S. 27,” he said

Two from NKY on EKU mock trial team


One of seven teams competing in Fla.

The Eastern Kentucky University Mock Trial Team was one of seven teams at the American Mock Trial Association Regional Tournament, held Feb. 1-2 in Tallahassee, Fla., to qualify for the opening round of the National Championship Tournament. Eastern competed against teams from Rhodes College, University of Florida, Florida State University, University of Miami, University of AlabamaBirmingham, University of Central Florida, University of Tennessee, University of South Florida, Stetson University and West Florida University. A total of 192 teams nationwide (roughly the top third of

teams) qualified for the National Championship Tournament. The next round of competition for EKU will be March 21-23 in Memphis. Members of the EKU team that received a bid were: Josh Lang, captain, Fort Thomas; Damir Siahkoohi, Irvine; Caleb Taylor, Union; Allie Maples, Mount Sterling; Anthony Sean Potter and Matthew Boggs, Whitesburg; and Angel Spurlock, Mount Vernon. Lang, Siahkoohi, Maples, Potter, Boggs and Spurlock are also members of EKU’s Honors Program. Spurlock was one of 10 students (out of 120) to receive an All-Region Witness award. EKU faculty and staff working with the team are Sara Zeigler, Tom Parker, Lynnette Noblitt, Kristeena Johnson and Brandon Williams.

New Gateway book club offers classic ‘social networking’ Before Facebook, before Twitter, before Instagram, book clubs served as places to socialize, exchange ideas, trade wits and stimulate the intellect. They still do. The English and Library and Information Services departments at Gateway Community and Technical College are starting a good, old-fashioned book club designed to combine the best of Skype and other social networking sites – but no computer is required. The new Writing Club and Book Club offers face-to-face conversation in a fun and friendly setting from 6-8 p.m. on the last Thursday of every month. The inaugural meeting is Feb. 27 in Room 215H at Gateway’s Edgewood Campus at 790 Thomas More Parkway. Mem-

bership is free, and the public is welcome. Ray Bradbury’s classic, Fahrenheit 451, is up for discussion at the first meeting. Gateway has 30 copies of the novel available for borrowing prior to Feb. 27. Limited copies are available at Gateway locations in Boone County, Covington and Edgewood. Check with the librarian at each location. Rock Neelly, assistant professor of English and communication, will lead the conversation. A native of Kansas who found his way to the Tristate region by way of Colorado and North Carolina, Neelly teaches literature and composition classes. He has a master of arts degree from the University of

Denver in Mass Communications and a master’s degree in professional writing and editing from the University of Cincinnati. Neelly has published more than 50 articles in magazines and journals and serves on the board of the Friends of the Steely Library at Northern Kentucky University. Neelly volunteers at Books by the Banks in Cincinnati and is a member of The Classics Book Club at Midpointe Library. The married grandfather of four is currently working on two novels.

Brossart bowlers worked as team By Adam Turer

ALEXANDRIA — Bishop Brossart High School’s bowling team wrapped up its 2013-2014 season at the Region 5 tournament on Jan. 28 and 29 at Super Bowl Bellewood in Newport. This year, the Mustangs bowled together as a team, rather than as a collection of individual bowlers from the same school. “They bowled really well and what is more important was that they supported and encouraged each other,” said coach Jim Klump. “We made strides in becoming a team instead of individual bowlers.” At the regional tournament, freshman Sam Fleissner led the Mustangs. He rolled a total of 582 in the first three games to advance to the individual semifinals. He finished seventh in the Region, with a five game total of 911. The top four finishers advanced to a stepladder tournament to decide the regional champion. Joe Heim placed 13th with a three game total of 526, missing the semifinals by just 21 points. Aaron Ruschman and Wes Holden rounded out the scoring for the boys team. The boys team earned the No. 4 seed in the region, but lost to fifthseed Highlands in the opening round of team play. Still, it was an improvement on last season, when the boys earned the seventh seed in the region before losing in the opening round. “I felt like we did great at regionals,” Fleissner said. “Although we fell short, we fought hard.” On the girls side, Allison Steelman led the way for Brossart. She placed 16th with a three game total of 437. Lauren Sendelbach and Madison Prodoehl averaged a three-digit score. Monica Murray finished just shy of that mark, scoring a total of 294 in her three games. The girls team was also seeded fourth, and was also upset in the opening round of the team tournament. The girls were knocked off by Simon Kenton. Overall, it was a good season for the Mustangs that could have turned out even better. “We lost so many games this year by a few pins,” said Klump. “If we would have made just one or two more spares in those games, they would be wins instead of losses.” The Mustangs graduate six seniors, but have plenty of talent returning. For underclassmen like Fleissner, the solid showing in 2014 raises the bar for 2015. Their sights are set on advancing beyond the regional tournament next season.

The KHSAA state bowling tournament took place Feb. 1314 at Collins Eastland Lanes in Lexington. Campbell County fell to Highlands in a rematch of the Region 5 team final. Highlands prevailed in five games in the first round of the match-play final, which was best-of-five in the Baker format. The Baker system is five teammates alternating frames so each bowler rolls two frames in one 10frame game. Highlands beat Campbell 214-187,193-181,16211,177-178,240-182. The Camels were 11th seed after quali-

fying, and the Bluebirds sixth. In the girls team tournament, the Camels were the fifth seed after qualifying, then fell to the 12th seed Bryan Station, who was bowling near its campus. Bryan Station beat the Camels 3-0, 170-149,177145,203-145, and reached the state finals where it fell in five games to Pleasure Ridge Park. In singles, Harris bowled a 550 to finish 25th. In the girls singles tournament, Allison McGlasson finished 24th with a 495 series for three games. Dayton’s Elizabeth Masminster finished 14th in the girls singles tournament. She shot a 541 (187-168-186) in her first state tournament appearance.

» Northern Kentucky University’s Kelley Wiegman received Atlantic Sun Conference Newcomer of the Week honors Feb.17, the league office announced. Wiegman averaged 15.0 points and 4.5 rebounds over two Atlantic Sun victories at The Bank of Kentucky Center last week. She shot 64.7 percent from the field and knocked down six 3-point field goals, while dishing out eight assists and collecting three steals. “Kelley plays as hard as she possibly can on every possession,” NKU head coach Dawn Plitzuweit said. “It’s great to see that type of a work ethic rewarded with our team’s success, as well as with this honor.” Wiegman scored 16 of her career-high 19 points in the second half on Sat-

urday to help NKU avenge an early-season loss to Jacksonville with a 69-61 win over the Dolphins. She went 6-for-10 from the floor and knocked down a careerhigh five 3-pointers, having only connected on seven attempts on the year entering the contest. She pulled down five rebounds, all in the second half, to help stall several Jacksonville comebacks. Wiegman also collected four assists and two steals on the night, and she connected on her only two free throw attempts in the closing seconds to help seal the victory for the Norse. The freshman guard began the week with an 11-point performance as NKU completed the season sweep of North Florida with a 78-65 victory on Thursday. Wiegman finished 5-for-7 from the field and recorded four assists and one steal. Wiegman becomes the first NKU player this season to earn conference Newcomer of the Week honors.

TMC men rally to end season strong New coach, philosophy starting to take hold By Adam Turer

An offseason coaching change, a brutally difficult schedule, and a slow start could have easily led to a rebuilding season for the Thomas More College men’s basketball team. Instead the Saints’ five seniors and first-year head coach Drew Cooper rallied together and turned the season around. After starting the season 2-9, the Saints entered the final week of the regular season with a 12-10 mark and a chance to earn at least a share of the Presidents’ Athletic Conference championship. “Sure, there was doubt. Things are going to be second-guessed any time a team starts the season 2-9,” Cooper said. “It’s natural to wonder if you’re on the right path. Being a

first-year coach asking veteran players to make changes and to change philosophies is tough.” The leadership of seniors Brandon Housley (Holmes), Josef Marshall, Spencer Berlekamp, Eliot Pipes, and D’Carlo Hayes has been instrumental to the Saints’ turnaround. Thomas More won 10 of its first11conference contests before falling at Thiel on Feb. 15. “We remained patient,” Housley said. “We knew that we would start to peak down the line.” The seniors take accountability for more than their own performance. They feel an obligation to help the underclassmen adapt to the new system and style of play under Cooper’s staff. They want to teach their teammates how to work hard, both on and off the court. “As seniors, we have to be on the same page and fully understand the offensive and defensive systems,” Housley said. “It’s our job to make the underclassmen more effi-

their made field goals, and average 16 assists compared to just 12 turnovers per game. The team’s field goal percentage is better than last season’s, and has steadily improved over the course of this season. The players take pride in their unselfishness. “We have great teamwork and we love to pass the ball,” McGovney said. “We’re just as happy to get an assist as we are to score.” TMC enters the final week in third place in the PAC, behind Bethany and St. Vincent. The Saints travel to Bethany on Feb. 19 and host St. Vincent in the regular season finale on Feb. 22. They realize that their patience has paid off and they now control their own destiny as they seek the program’s first regular season conference title since 2009. “We are playing very unselfish basketball and are getting uncontested shots,” Cooper said. “The players have seen what we’re starting to do is working.”

cient in games and practices.” Another key for the Saints has been their depth. Marshall missed the first two months of the season with a foot injury. Underclassmen, like freshman Nate McGovney (Campbell County), have emerged into bigger roles. Their depth and balance helped the players remain calm during the early season swoon. “We knew that with the players and leadership that we have, we would get it on track,” McGovney said. The Saints can go 10 or more players deep in a game, and have had four or more players score in double figures in the same game on multiple occasions. The Saints set a school record with 18 made three-pointers from nine different scorers - in a Feb. 8 win over Washington and Jefferson. “Someone takes a different role every half, not just every game,” Cooper said. “It’s remarkable.” The Saints assist on more than 50 percent of

HPV vaccine offers cancer protection


Campbell County High School’s engineering class students, Noah Vaniglia and Andrew Kiddy, recently received third place in the programming division at the Vex Robotics Tournament. This ranked their team tied for 99th out of 10,000 teams in the world. It also qualifies them for state competition.THANKS TO RON ROSEL

When you talk about medical breakthroughs, a cure for cancer rises to the top. While a cure for cancer is yet to be discovered, we have a tool to prevent certain types of cancer – the HPV vaccine. Yet, vaccination rates for pre-teens, who are recommended to get the three-dose series, are surprisingly low. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that only 33 percent of girls and 8 percent of boys had been fully vaccinated in 2012 (the rate for boys is lower because the vaccine was more recently recommended for them). HPV is short for human papillomavirus. About 79 million people in the United States, most in their teens and early 20s, are infected with HPV. Not only does HPV cause almost all cervical cancers in women, it is also responsible for other types of cancer. HPV causes cancer in a variety of places in both men and women, including the mouth/throat, anus and genitals. In the United States each year, there are about 18,000 women and 7,000 men affected by HPV-related cancers. Kentucky has the eighth highest rate of cervical cancer in the country. So how do we improve our vaccination rates so we can change this trend? Timing is important: HPV vaccination is recommended at age 11 or 12. Because the HPV virus can be spread through sexual activity, the vaccine offers the greatest health benefits to individuals who receive all three doses before having any type of sexual activity. Eleven and 12 year olds are already required to get other immunizations: a Tdap to protect against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis; and a meningitis vaccine. The first dose of HPV can safely and easily be given during the same visit as the other two shots (and odds are the amount of protest or eye-rolling from your pre-teen won’t rise too drastically from shot No. 2 to No. 3).

We’re missing opportunities for HPV vaccination, though. Nationally, 74 percent of pre-teens got a Tdap vacLynne M. cination and 84 Saddler percent got one COMMUNITY for meningitis. RECORDER GUEST Let’s not think COLUMNIST of HPV vaccination as optional – the benefits are far too great for families to delay or decline this vaccination. Cost was once a concern, but it is no longer. The vaccine is covered by Medicaid and many health insurance plans. For the uninsured the vaccine can be expensive, but through a special grant, the health department is offering the vaccine to those ages 19 to 26 years for just $4 per dose at our county health centers and those 18 and under can receive the vaccine through the Vaccines for Children program. Many parents hesitate to give their son or daughter the HPV vaccine because they worry it might encourage sexual activity. A study in Pediatrics released this month found that getting the HPV vaccination does not lead to riskier sexual activity among young women. Previous studies have also shown that the HPV vaccine is not linked to increased promiscuity at an earlier age. As it is with so many other conditions, vaccination is the best prevention tool available. Consider this: If 80 percent of pre-teens were vaccinated against HPV, we’d prevent 4,400 future cases of cervical cancer and 1,400 cancer deaths. Simply put, the HPV vaccine is cancer prevention. Help protect your son or daughter by making sure that he/she gets all three doses of HPV vaccine, starting at age 11 or 12.

Evolving the debate toward humanness

The spirit of John Scopes recently descended upon our beloved Bluegrass in the form of debate between Creation Museum founder Ken Ham and Bill Nye, the Science Guy. Nothing like a good debate to rouse the troops comfortably entrenched in their intellectual foxholes (two-thirds of Americans identify more or less as evolutionists and one-third as creationists according to a recent Pew survey). Verbal barbs between camps have been traded since the famous “Monkey Trial” sparked by Scopes – a native Kentuckian by the way. Nye’s participation interestingly drew the ire of evolutionary scientists who likened it to intellectual condescension on

par with debating Cro-Magnon. Nye contends that adherence to evolution is integral if not foundational to Richard good science. Nelson Never mind that the BibliCOMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST cal worldview COLUMNIST held by Pasteur, Pascal, Copernicus and Newton didn’t impede their scientific pursuits. Nor did it inhibit modern scientist Raymond Damadian from discovering magnetic resonance imaging as Ham pointed out. There is no doubt in Nye’s

mind that the universe is really old and began with a Big Bang, yet he couldn’t answer where the consciousness that allows him to think that thought comes from in the first place. To exalt science as the arbiter of all truth and reality is to coronate scientific man as more powerful than he really is. Scientists are people. People are finite. By definition, a finite creature is limited in his knowing. Even his observations are limited by the constraints of the human condition and subject to change with the gathering of new information. This is not an excuse to be ignorant. It is instead a challenge to temper humanity with a good dose of humility – the kind on par needed

by the afflicted Job when indignant with God over his suffering. God responded, “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding. Who determined its measurements—surely you know!” (Job 38:4-5a) Evolution has yet to explain where matter and energy come from and how living things spring from non-living matter. It has not answered where intelligence or morality come from. And it is completely silent in explaining how “survival of the fittest” comports with compassion and care for the sick and dying – of total strangers. These conundrums are evolving the

Shop & Share Day helps Women’s Crisis Center shelters

HEBRON — Shop and Share Day, a one-day goods drive to benefit Kentucky Domestic Violence Association shelters across the state, including Women’s Crisis Center’s shelters, was Saturday, Feb. 1 at Kroger, Food City and Super Dollar Discount Food stores in Northern Kentucky and across the commonwealth. Volunteers at each store collected goods from shoppers including non-perishable food items, school supplies, and personal care products. All collected goods and monetary donations for Shop and Share in Northern Kentucky and Buffalo Trace went to the shelters of the Women’s Crisis Center. Kentucky First Lady Jane Beshear began this annual drive in 2008 to provide domestic violence shelters with needed goods, such as canned

foods, toilet paper and soap at Kroger stores across the state. The goods and funds donated at Northern Kentucky Kroger stores will benefit Women’s Crisis Center’s Northern Kentucky shelter. For the entire state of Kentucky, the record breaking one-day goods drive raised more than $839,000 in combined goods and monetary donations for Kentucky Domestic Violence Association shelters. The Women’s Crisis Center collected an unprecedented amount of donations made possible by the support of the community. This event stocks its shelters with basic necessities for the year and significantly reduces overhead costs so monetary donations made to the agency go directly to their programs and services that help keep families safe and get them back on their feet.

“I want to express how appreciative Women’s Crisis Center is for all of our Shop and Share volunteers, donors, and partners. Because of their unparalleled commitment, we have collected more donations this year than all previous years combined,” said Angie Ferguson, Women’s Crisis Center volunteer coordinator. “It is so very encouraging to those of us who work for WCC to see how much our community supports our efforts.” Organizational partners for the 2014 Shop and Share Day include the first lady’s office, Kentucky Domestic Violence Association, Kroger, Food City, Super Dollar Stores, Kentucky Commission on Women, General Federation of Women’s Clubs, Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana, Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road Council and Kentucky Drug Courts.

Tickets for Spiral Stakes now on sale. Tickets are now on sale for the 43rd running of the $550,000 Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati Spiral Stakes at Turfway Park on Saturday, March 22. The Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati Spiral Stakes, a Grade 3 race for 3-yearold thoroughbreds, is one of just 34 races in the United States and Dubai designated as qualifiers for the Kentucky Derby, which is limited to 20 starters. The 1 1⁄8-mile Spiral Stakes offers 85 qualifying points: 50 to the winner, 20 to the runnerup, 10 to the third-place finisher and five to the horse that finishes fourth. Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati again holds title sponsorship of the Spiral Stakes. Horseshoe, which opened last March in downtown Cincinnati, began title sponsorship last year and increased the purse to $550,000, its highest point in more than a decade. The elite venue at the Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati Spiral Stakes is the VIP tent. The 408-foot by x 82-foot clear-span structure, which has no interi-

or columns to block the view, seats 2,000 guests. It is heated and has retractable sidewalls and installed flooring. “We’ve run the Spiral Stakes in 70 degrees and we’ve run it in snow,” said Turfway Park general manager Chip Bach. “After dealing with the polar vortex during our racing season this year, we think Mother Nature owes us one of those 70 degree

days. If she cooperates, we’ll open the sides of the tent and let the party spill out right up to the rail. Watching horses thunder around the final turn is one of the most exciting moments of any race, and that’s especially true for a race that sends a starter to the Derby.” The VIP tent is the seeand-be-seen party at the Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati Spiral Stakes, and

Derby-worthy fashion is de rigueur. The $175 ticket includes the grand buffet, premium open bar, racing program, commemorative glass, luxury shopping venues such as Fabulous Furs and Triple Crown Hats, prize drawings and live entertainment by dance and party band The Chuck Taylors. About 40 flat screen TVs throughout the tent

bring the races inside, or guests can watch from the tent’s private viewing area along the rail. For those who can’t decide between hoops and horses, several screens will be dedicated to the NCAA basketball tournament. The VIP tent also is a popular venue for corporate entertaining, with tables for 10 available for $1,750. Turfway’s five-story grandstand offers a range of other reserved options, including buffet, panoramic views of the track and handicapping stations with individual TVs, from $25 to $80. General admission is $10, with first-come, firstserved seating on the track apron and in the grandstand. Fans are welcome to bring folding chairs for additional apron seating. Coolers are not permitted. Parking is free; valet parking is $5. Tickets are available at 800-733-0200, at the general office at Turfway or online at “Spiral Stakes day has

been a tradition in Northern Kentucky for 43 years,” Bach said. “People get together with friends and reserve the same seats year after year. The race is Turfway’s day on the national racing stage, and we look forward to renewing the tradition with longtime fans and introducing new fans to the excitement of first class Thoroughbred racing.” The day’s 12-race card also includes the Grade 3 $125,000 Bourbonette Oaks, a one-mile, 85-point qualifier for the Kentucky Oaks, the filly counterpart to the Derby. Nominations to the Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati Spiral Stakes close March 1. Entries will be drawn Wednesday, March 19, at the Call to the Post luncheon held again this year at Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati. This event is not open to the public. The Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati Spiral Stakes and the Bourbonette Oaks will be broadcast live on TVG and on the Horse Racing Radio Network. First post is 1:10 p.m. ET.

Comfort food can help you get through winter Reader Mike R. said: “Everywhere I go, I never find two coleslaws alike. Everyone has his or her own taste and ingredients. In my personal opinion, Blue Ash Chili in has the best coleslaw, creamy and sweet. Does anyone have a recipe for this version of slaw?”

My friend, Charlene Castle, known as the dumplin’ queen around here, is a Southern girl who makes her dumplings with soft, self-rising flour and hot water. She doesn’t use measuring cups; she uses special bowls like her mom. Real heirloom cooking. “Roll them out, put them in the chicken and broth. They’ll thicken it,” she said. I make Rita dumplings, Heikenfeld too, but RITA’S KITCHEN mine are the kind you scoop up and plop on top of soup or stew. Fun to make. Granddaughter Eva, almost 6, is pretty good at making these dumplings. It won’t be long before I get her little sis, Emerson, up on the stool to help, as well.

No-peek herbed dumplings

1 cup all-purpose flour, spooned lightly into cup and leveled off 11⁄2 teaspoons baking powder 1 ⁄4 teaspoon each salt and pepper or to taste Palmful fresh minced parsley (optional) 1 ⁄2 cup milk or bit more, if needed 3 tablespoons butter

Whisk flour, baking powder and salt together. Add parsley. Make a well in center. Heat milk with butter until butter melts. Pour into well and mix. Dough will look sort of shaggy. Add a bit more milk, if necessary. Don’t over mix. Sometimes there’s a bit of dry mixture in the bottom of the bowl. Just leave it. Turn heat down on soup to simmer. Use an ice cream scoop sprayed with cooking spray to drop dumplings carefully on top of liquid, leaving space in between for expansion. Put lid on. No peeking! Simmer anywhere from 8 to 10 minutes, or until largest dumpling is done: cut in half to test. Dumpling will be cooked through and not soggy in middle. Dumplings expand to double or even tri-

Quick beef stroganoff

I only know her by her first name, Sherry. We almost collided at the store. Sherry was buying ingredients for this recipe and when I told her it sounded so good, she gave me her copy! “I have another at home,” she said. I followed her recipe pretty close, with a few adaptations. Worth sharing! 1 pound flank steak Olive oil 1 cup chopped onion 1 ⁄2 to 3⁄4 teaspoon minced garlic (optional) Salt and pepper to taste Hot paprika or a little cayenne, to taste 6-8 oz. fresh exotic mushrooms or regular mushrooms, sliced 11⁄2 cups beef broth 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons flour 1 ⁄3 cup sour cream plus more for garnish Several green onions, sliced Nice pat of butter, about a tablespoon or so Cooked noodles

Slice beef across grain 1 ⁄4-inch wide strips, then cut strips in half. Film bottom of pan with oil and heat to medium high. Add

beef and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Remove and add onion, garlic, seasonings and mushrooms to pan and cook until mushrooms are tender, adding a bit more oil if necessary. Reduce heat to medium. Mix 1⁄4 cup beef broth with flour to make a paste. Add to pan along with beef, stirring well. Stir in 1-1⁄4 cups broth, cover and cook until sauce thickens. Adjust seasonings. Stir in sour cream, green onions and butter. Serve over noodles and pass sour cream.

Thriftway’s tortellini salad. Western Hills reader Mark Wiggershaus would like to have this recipe or something similar. “It had an earthy taste and was very good,” Mark said. Like Frisch’s or Jock’s batter for deep-fried fish. Reader Tom Ohmer would love to have a similar recipe. Blue Ash Chili’s coleslaw.

Legislation would license auto repair shops

Motor vehicle repairs continue to top the list of consumer complaints received by the Ohio Attorney General. In most cases, that office is very limited in its ability to help solve the consumer problems. That’s why Ohio State Sen. Joe Uecker (R-Miami Township) has introduced legislation that would require mechanic repair facilities to be licensed. Right now there are more than 4,000 such repair shops operating without any oversight. Only body

agency would also help resolve complaints filed by vehicle owners, such as Kimberly Thorpe of Liberty Township. She was told she needed a new engine for her 2004 Chrysler Sebring. So, she took it to a repair shop where, she said, it sat for more than a year. Thorpe eventually took the vehicle to a dealership and was told some parts were missing. In addition, she was told a new engine would cost $5,500 to $6,000 – yet she had already spent more than

two-thirds that amount with that first repair shop. Thorpe says she gave that first shop owner one more chance to fix the vehicle, but she never got her engine. Instead she has parts in the back seat and the trunk of her vehicle, but no engine under the hood. Angel Hale-Frater, of Blue Ash, is also upset with the dealership to which she took her overheating SUV. She paid $1,500 for the repair but, after getting it back, she discovered the SUV was still overheating. She returned the vehicle to the dealership and said the manager told her, “We make mistakes all the time.” Then she was told new repairs needed would cost nearly double what she had already paid. “If they had presented

me with, ‘Your car needs upwards of $2,000 plus of work,’ I would have said, ‘No.’ I bought it seven years ago, it had 35,000 miles on it, its now got 130,000 miles,” Hale-Frater said. Fortunately, after filing a complaint with me, the dealership agreed to deduct the cost of that first repair from HaleFrater’s second bill. However, she still ended up paying more than $2,000 for the repairs. Uecker said he hopes the repair shop licensing legislation will be passed by the end of this year. I suggested, and the legislature will consider, requiring shop owners to post a small bond. That would assure vehicle owners get compensated should there be a problem collecting from a repair

the fescues, and perennial rye grass. We don’t recommend throwing Mike down grass Klahr seed on the HORTICULTURE snow, since CONCERNS that leads to very uneven seed distribution when the snows melt and water runs down slopes and off the lawn. However, as soon as the snow melts and the ground is not too wet, it’s fine to go ahead and scatter grass seed over your lawn to do some over-seeding. MidFebruary through late March is a good time to sow cool-season grass seed. Once the ground is no longer frozen or muddy, you can even rent a slit seeder to get good seed to soil contact as well as a more uniform distribution of seed. Early March seedings usually have fewer problems with weed competition than April/May seedings. Problem lawns in Northern Kentucky with shade, poor soil, or heavy traffic should almost always be established with tall fescue. Fine (red) fescue and perennial rye grass also have some limited uses in lawns. Bluegrass seeds take much longer to germinate, and eventually thatch buildup can become a problem, requiring de-thatching. Do a soil test (free through your local Northern Kentucky county extension service) now to determine the exact lime and fertilizer needs of your lawn. Excess lime can result in poor nutrient uptake. Only by having your soil tested will you know whether or not you should add lime, phosphorus and potassium to your lawn soil. Ideally, seeding of new lawns should be done into loose, prepared soil. Seeding is usually done with a rotary seeder or the usual drop-type seed and fertilizer spreader. To determine the proper seeding rates, ask for a copy of Cooperative Extension publication, “Selecting the Right Grass

for Your Kentucky Lawn (AGR-52).” For uniform distribution, divide the seed into two equal lots. The second lot should be seeded at right angles to the first. Cover the seed by raking lightly or rolling with a water-ballast roller. Mulch the area with clean straw. The mulch covering should be thin enough to expose about 50 percent of the soil surface, which means using about one bale of straw per 1,000 square feet of area. If snows and rains cease, water the new grass seedlings often, but lightly. For weed control, refer to Cooperative Extension publication, “Weed Control Recommendations for Kentucky Bluegrass and Tall Fescue Lawns and Recreational Turf (AGR-78).” For more information on lawn care and other gardening topics, and to win free flower and vegetable seeds, go to or contact your local County Cooperative Extension Service.

Food is not our only survival need Have you ever stopped to think about all the things that feed us? I’m not just talking about nutrition. We use food to fill our stomachs, but we use other things to feed us as well. We use relationships, jobs, books, shows and apps. They all serve a purpose to feed our emotions and meet our needs in some way. And when asked, we might say we can’t live without them, but the truth is, we can. It would be gut-wrenching to lose a spouse, child, or parent for sure, and our lives would be forever changed, but physically our bodies would survive. The same is not true for food. Our bodies need nutrition to function. It would be physically impossible for us to survive for a long period without food. Interestingly, we’re told in two distinct places in the Bible that food is not the only thing we need to survive. In Deuteronomy 8:3 and Matthew 4:4 (also in Luke 4:4), we are told, “It is written that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord.” Now if this is true, many of us are dying today. We try to sustain our lives through self-help books, TV shows, relationships, gym memberships. None of which are hurtful in and of themselves, but none can sustain us unless they are coupled with God’s word. Not to men-

tion, if you have ever lost a loved one, then you know all too well that even the Guest most columnist COMMUNITY PRESS wonderful relaGUEST COLUMNIST tionship has an ending on this Earth. So many of us need a fresh start today; we are desperate for a new life, a new approach, a new way of thinking. If you’re looking for a fresh start today, look in the book of James; “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” (James 1:17). In other words, God has great and perfect gifts waiting for all who want a relationship with him. There is no one like him and he never changes and he never leaves.

May you be blessed with the gift of experiencing a fresh start and a new relationship this week. Julie House is a resident of Independence, and founder of Equipped Ministries, a Christian-based health and wellness program. She can be reached at 802-8965 or on

Three from NKY up for Overture Awards The Cincinnati Arts Association is sponsoring this year’s Overture Awards Scholarship Competition – the largest locally-run arts scholarship competition in the country. The Overture Awards annually provides a $3,500 scholarship to six area high school students for education and training expenses, with 18 finalists each winning a $750 scholarship. The finals competition and awards ceremony will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 1, at the Aronoff Center’s Jarson-Kaplan Theater. Winners will be announced immediately following the competition. This year, 466 students

were nominated by their schools to compete in one of six artistic disciplines: creative writing, dance, instrumental music, theater, visual art, and vocal music. The awards were developed to recognize, encourage, and reward excellence in the arts among Tristate students in grades nine-12. It also provides students an opportunity to share their talents and interests among their peers in a supportive environment outside of their individual schools. There are three levels of competition: regionals, semifinals, and finals. The Overture Awards Regional Competitions were held Jan. 11. The top

20 percent of competitors in each discipline advanced to the semifinals on Jan. 17 and 18. Twentyfour finalists (four in each discipline) will compete in the finals at the Aronoff Center’s Jarson-Kaplan Theater on March 1. Northern Kentuckians who are Overture Awards finalists: Creative Writing » Bridget Nichols – Scott High School, grade 12 Vocal Music • Natalie Sheppard – Dixie Heights High School, grade 12.

Hot pickin’ returns to Northern Kentucky this month and next when Turfway Park again will host bluegrass concerts presented by Cincinnati’s WOBO-FM. First up is The Special Consensus at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22. The Special Consensus was formed in the Chicago area in 1975 and performs traditional bluegrass standards, original tunes, and music from other genres played bluegrass style. The band has released 16 recordings, including 2012’s Grammy-nominated “Scratch Gravel Road.” The Special Consensus has appeared on The Nashville Network and at The Grand Ole Opry, among other venues, and has toured internationally. Band leader Greg Cahill is a past president and

board chairman of the International Bluegrass Music Association and was recognized by that organization with the Distinguished Achievement Award in 2011. Marty Raybon and Full Circle will perform at 7 p.m. Friday, March 7. Across four decades, Raybon’s career has spanned country and Southern gospel as well as bluegrass. As co-founder and lead singer of the acclaimed country group Shenandoah for 13 years, Raybon’s work has been recognized by awards from the Country Music Association, International Bluegrass Music Association, the Academy of Country Music, and the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, home of the Grammy awards. Twice Gram-

my-nominated, Shenandoah won the award for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals in 1996 for “Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart” with Alison Krauss, also that year’s Country Music Association winner for Vocal Event of the Year. Just before leaving Shenandoah in 1997, Raybon and his brother Tim teamed up as The Raybon Brothers and enjoyed crossover success with the hit single “Butterfly Kisses.” Raybon’s latest project with his band Full Circle is “Back Forty,” released last summer. Tickets for each concert are $20 in advance or $25 the day of the show; all are general admission. Parking is free. Tickets are available at or by calling 859-992-5775.

A new gala to benefit the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center will be “unmasked” Saturday, March 1, at the Airport Marriott in Hebron. “Masquerade Madness is going to be fresh, different, and elegant, and we promise an evening of glamorous mystique for our loyal supporters, new friends and guests,” said Kimberly Carlisle of Union. Carlisle leads the Advocates, a 40-member volunteer organization which presents the advocacy center’s annual gala.

Guests will be surrounded by Venetian opulence with fine dining, dancing, and both silent and live auction items enveloped in a night of allure and mystery. But a component of the gala’s live auction is truly unique, bringing students and local businesses together. Part of the evening’s proceeds will come from auction items created by local art students in Northern Kentucky. High school art club students from Beechwood, Dixie Heights, Simon Kenton,


St. Henry District High School, and Villa Madonna Academy have created 30 one-of-a-kind pinwheel-themed wind chimes exclusively for the gala’s live auction. In addition to the wind chimes, students at Boone County Area Technology Center have developed a pinwheel-themed indoor/ outdoor water feature for the live auction’s finale. Tickets for Masquerade Madness are available now at or by calling 859525-1128.
