BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS
Southern Campbell roads need fixes Conditions blamed for high crash rates By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
NEWPORT — Fiscal Court was
shown a map revealing poor driving safety conditions on secondary roads in the south end of the county during a presentation of regional transportation issues at the March 21 meeting in Newport. Robert Koehler, deputy executive director of the Ohio Kentucky Indiana Regional Council of Governments, presented a draft of the group’s 2040 plan for area transportation needs and goals. OKI has scheduled a series of public open houses for people to review and comment on the regional plans at the end of April. As part of the overview of existing conditions, Koehler projected a map of Campbell County that showed a majority of the secondary roads in southern county have high rates of accidents compared to traffic volume. It’s not surprising to see the accident rates for the southern part of the county are on the high end because of the conditions of the roads in the area, he said. “There are a lot of needs in the southern part of the county,” Koehler said. “Crash rates are high.” Many roads in the southern
end of the county are sloped improperly in places, and people know that, he said. Road quality in the southern end of the county has been a long-standing issue, but one of many transportation needs in the entire region, he said. The top project and priority in the draft 2040 plan is the Brent Spence Bridge that carries I-75 and I-71 across the Ohio River, Koehler said. The bridge was designed to carry 80,000 vehicles a day, and now carries 160,000 vehicles each day, he said. “The economic lifeblood of this region is the Brent Spence Bridge,” Koehler said. OKI using a scoring process for road priorities that includes road conditions, but also factors in whether a project brings in jobs, Koehler said. That doesn’t mean the roads in the southern part of Campbell County need be forgotten, but local leaders need to work with state officials to find ways to make improvements, he said. There are typically more improvements needed than OKI can raise funds to cover in each regional transportation plan, Koehler said. Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine said the county is already working with the state on some basic roadway safety issues. The county has been identifying sharp curves on roads in the
south end of the county and working with the state to put up “curve ahead” signs to warn drivers this year, Horine said. Commissioner Ken Rechtin said he was amazed at the collective condition of secondary roads in southern Campbell County. “It was almost like all of the rural roads had higher accident rates,” Rechtin said. Rechtin said during the meeting he wanted the county to look into the possibility of employing a state program where representatives for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet come and evaluate county and state roads. “They will look at speeds, they will look at signage, and they will look at the radius of the bends and the berms and where the edges or sides of the road are,” he said. The county has the power to request the state evaluation, Rechtin said. Pendleton County has done so in the past, and evaluators will look at accidents specifically, he said. If the work has already been done by OKI to identify areas that are especially accident prone the state and county need to work to find ways to install guard rails and make other improvements that are cost effective, Rechtin said. “Of course a decrease in accidents always helps all of us,” Rechtin said.

Series helps plan vows Extension hosts wedding planning events By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
HIGHLAND HEIGHTS —
The Campbell County Extension Service in Highland Heights and wedding professionals will host “Happily Ever After” a free three-part Monday evening series in April in May about planning one of life’s biggest events. At least 12 local wedding professionals are scheduled to attend talking about areas ranging from cakes, photography, catering, music and finding a venue. The series is open to anyone, but reservations are required and space is limited to a maximum of about 75 people, said Lisa Anglin, an assistant extension agent for Family and Consumer Science. “We welcome brides, parents anyone interested in weddings,” Anglin said. Sessions will be on three consecutive Mondays from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Each date will cover a different topic. » April 23: ‘You’re Engaged? Getting Started.” » April 30: “The Big Day…The Wedding.” » May 7: “Reception Perfection.” The series will feature multiple local businesses including a representatives of Little Moments in Bellevue about the different types of wedding invitations available, and Belle Bridal Boutique of Bellevue – the only shop in the area specializing in plus size bridal gowns, Anglin said. “We’ll also have information about looking before you leap and basic information for brides,” she said. Many times it’s such an education when brides and families are meeting with a wedding professional for the first time. The series is a chance to help people strengthen the dialogue they have with a wedding professional starting with the first meeting, Anglin said. “It’s strictly for people to get to know local vendors and be prepared to go and speak with them; and know what to bring and what ask,” she said. For information or to make a reservation to attend “Happily Ever After” call the Campbell County Extension Service office, 3500 Alexandria Pike, Highland Heights, at 859572-2600.

really been available for them,” said Jason Burgess, Highlands High School’s theater director who is coordinating the new program. Through CAST, students will have a chance to be involved in a theatrical production when school is not in session and be able to collaborate with students from all across the region. Burgess said auditions and interviews are being held for everything from performers to technical and crew positions. The program is open to any students, regardless of their experience levels. “We want any student who is interested to be able to get involved,” Burgess
said. Burgess said he is currently in discussions with other high school directors in the area to get them involved as well, making it a true community program. The plan is to put on one show every summer. The inaugural production will be The Producers, written by Mel Brooks, and will take place at the end of June at Highlands High School. The program is the third part of Fort Thomas’s community theater program, which also offers adult and child productions. For more information about the program, visit www.highlandstheatre.com.

Changes coming to AJ Jolly Park this year will make renting a canoe or kayak at the lake possible and finding a paved walking or biking path even easier. Campbell County Fiscal Court approved three resolutions pertaining to AJ Jolly Park at the March 21 meeting in Newport. The first an update of the 2012 park fee schedule, keeps prices about the same as they were last year, said Commissioner Ken Rechtin, who was leading the meeting in place of Judgeexecutive Steve Pendery. The most immediate impact for the park will be from approving an agreement with Thaxton’s South Fork Canoe Trails, Inc. Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine said the agreement will allow people to rent canoes and kayaks at the park’s lake as soon as it opens for the season. The county will not share in any of the profits with Thaxton’s this year, and will negotiate an agreement if the operation is successful to share in some of the profits in future years, Horine said. People sometimes already rent canoes and kayaks from Thaxton’s in Butler on the Licking River and carry them to AJ Jolly on their own sometimes to enjoy the lake, he said. Prior to the agreeing to
the canoe and kayak rentals, David Plummer, the solid waste coordinator for the county, explained how the county will expand the multipurpose path through the park and make other changes and repairs using $35,000 in federal grant money. Total cost of the project will be $35,000 and consist of repairing two sections of the existing paved multipurpose trail, lengthening the trail, and installing playground equipment in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Plummer said. The existing paved multipurpose path is used for running, jogging, bicycling and walking, he said. The federal Recreational Trails Grant is through the Federal Highway Administration, Plummer said. The grant will allow the county to create a new section of the pathway around the Beiting Sports Complex, he said. The new section of path will start at the northern end of the trail at the Beiting Sports Complex. The new section of trail will go past picnic area No. 1, and run next to the park’s lake for about 200 feet before it reconnects with the original trail section. Plummer said the repairs to the existing pathway are needed . “Some of the damage, it doesn’t look too bad, but it does create a tripping hazard,” he said.

Cline violin students take a 'bow' NKU host after school program By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
COLD SPRING — Cline Elementary School students in Cold Spring have learned more than how to take a bow, they’ve learned how to use one on a violin. Cline students performed a concert, playing two unique versions of the song “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” during the March 12 Board of Education meeting for Campbell County Schools in Alexandria. At the conclusion of their performance the students, led by Holly Attar, director of Northern Kentucky University’s Music Preparatory Department, took a bow and as people in the room applauded. Cline students in grades 3-6 have been taking private lessons
on violin or viola from NKU Music Preparatory Department instructors since September. Lynn Poe, Cline’s principal, said she wanted the board and audience to hear the “amazing” progress students taking the lessons are making. NKU professors come to Cline twice a week after school, said Leslie Hagan, an integrated arts teacher at Cline. There are 16 students at Cline taking lessons now, and the program will probably restart next year at the school and begin accepting new violin students, Hagan said. Hagan is also the sponsor of the Cline violin club. Hagan said she’s learned just as much as the students have through the NKU program. “I’m actually one of the students, I’m taking lessons with my students,” she said. The students started out learning to use their fingers in a

style known as pizzicato, Hagan said. “We plucked first and then we learned how to bow,” she said. “It sounds like a lot of screeching at first, but the students progressed
rather quickly.” Lessons have covered topics from the basics of learning how to hold a bow to being able to stay in rhythm and play a song, Hagan said.
Parents pay for the instrument rental and for the NKU lessons, she said. The NKU lessons are great for the students who enjoy learning a new instrument, Hagan said. Having the students perform at the March 12 board meeting was the culmination of many lessons and students now can play several songs, she said. “There are several songs in our repertoire, can do “Ode to Joy,” “Twinkle Twinkle,” Farajaka” and “Boil Them Cabbage Down,” Hagan said.

Dance team keeps on growing By Amanda Joering Alley email@example.com
FORT THOMAS — Highlands High School’s dance team has come a long way since it began in 2006. The team, which started after a group of parents got together and requested that dance be added to the school’s list of sports, has grown each year, from 15 girls on one team to 51 girls on three teams. “It’s really exciting to see the team grow and progress,” said coach Erin Minstermann, who started with the team in 2006. Minstermann said when she went to Highlands, she used to ask for the school to start a dance team, giving girls another athletic option. “There was never an outlet for dance at Highlands until this team,” Minstermann said. “Dance is really becoming a big sport across the country, and I’m glad Highlands gets to be a part of that.” From basketball and footballs games to youth clinics and practices, the team has a busy year, but the highlights of their season are the state and national competitions they compete in every January and February. While they are a newer team, they have seen a lot of success so far, with all three teams, middle school, junior varsity and varsity, seeing victories at competitions including the Kentucky Dance Coaches Organization Regional Competition and State Championship, the Northern Kentucky Cheerleading Coaches Association Cheer and Dance Competition and the the JamFest Dance Super Nationals. “We’ve definitely come a long
way since freshman year,” said junior Tori Simons. “Next year, I’m hoping to get everyone even more involved and motivated to do even better.” Junior Samantha Reynolds said the team does a lot of team building exercises, creating a bond that she thinks is one of their strengths. “It’s been so much fun to build relationships with the other girls and work as a team to represent our school,” Reynolds said. Many of the seniors, like Meaghan Allen, said they are sad to see their time on the team end. Allen, who has been dancing since she was 3 years old, said it has become such a big part of her life. “As a kid I didn’t really like dance,” Allen said. “Now, that I’m older I don’t know what I’d do without it.” Senior Maddie Farley, whose mom worked to get the team started, said she too is going to miss being on the team, but plans to stay involved through her two younger sisters, who are dancers as well. For senior Jenna Weyer, being on the dance team helped her discover what she wants to do with her life, but it’s not dance. When Weyer tore her ACL last year during dance and had to go to a physical therapist, she found her calling. “Through my experience, I decided I wanted to go into physical therapy,” Weyer said. The team is currently on a break right now until try-outs in June. For more information about the team, visit www.fortthomas.kyschools.us and click on the athletics tab under departments.

DAYTON — Some students at Dayton High School now have a better idea about what the real world will be like after graduation. Through the Campbell County Cooperative Extension Service, students in the eighth and 11th grades participated in the Kentucky 4-H Reality Store Friday, March 2. The activity, sponsored by the school’s youth service center and the Campbell County 4-H, is designed to show students what it’s like to live in the real world by assigning them a job, giving them a family to support and making them work out a way to pay all of their monthly bills. “I think it’s important for students to get a taste of the real world at a young age,” said Youth Service Center coordinator Sherri Chan. “It’s really eyeopening for a lot of the kids.” Chan said for the activity, the

AMANDA JOERING ALLEY/COMMUNITY RECORDER students’ salary is based on their current grade point average (GPA) with a lower GPA giving students lower-paying jobs. Students with a GPA higher than 3.5 are assigned jobs that require a master’s or doctorate degree, while students with a GPA below 1 get jobs that require no high school diploma, Chan said. With the salary they are given, the students have to go to the Uncle Sam booth and pay their taxes before heading to other
booths including housing, transportation, groceries, utilities, child care, clothing and more. Campbell County 4-H agent Sheri Broderick said students that run out of money can go to a booth and get a second job or try to get a loan or credit card from the bank, but then have to wear a sticker saying they are in debt. “I think the students take so much out of the reality store,” Broderick said. “Many of them are amazed at how much children cost.”
Lunch packs veggie taste tests By Chris Mayhew

GRANTS LICK — Fifth-grader Brianna Angel nibbled the tip off of a spear of asparagus, winced, and ran for the nearest trash can at Grants Lick Elementary School Tuesday, March 20. Angel then said she didn’t like asparagus and... “yuck.” School nurse Sandy Bunting said it was all right if Angel didn’t like asparagus – but at least she tried and tasted the vegetable. Bunting set up a Plinko game board daily lunch the week of March19-23 as part of the Northern Kentucky Independent Health District’s 5-A-Day Fruit & Veggie Challenge. Students dropped a plastic circle down the Plinko board filled with peg obstacles to help determine what fruit or vegetable they had to taste each day. Zach Heringer, a fifth grader,

tried spinach and said he didn’t mind the taste, but thought it didn’t have any flavor. It was his first time trying a spinach leaf. Bunting served up foods including sugar melon, raisins, spinach leaves and Brussels sprouts. The Brussels sprouts were a hit with one entire preschool class because sometimes peer pressure works in good ways, she said. “One preschooler tried Brussels sprouts and he jumped up and down and said ‘I love Brussels Sprouts,’” Bunting said. “They all started scooping them up because he said he liked them.”
Next year, all student lunches will feature menus where at least half of every plate comes from fruits and vegetables. Bunting said students are encouraged to eat five servings of fruits and vegetables each day at school and home for seven days. Additionally, students and staff at Grants Lick were asked to sign a voluntary pledge to give up soda for a week, she said. Bunting said introducing the students to new foods is part of why she has the taste test game. “I’ll have some of them come back and say ‘I made my mom buy that because I really like that,’” Bunting said.

awards. The winners for each level were: » Elementary: Stacey L. Arnold, a third-grade teacher at Campbell Ridge Elementary School in Alexandria. » Middle school: Darci L. Ruber, the vocational technology teacher at Campbell County Middle School. » High school: Janet M. Johnson, the academic enhancement program teacher at Bishop Brossart High School. Ruber said she was surprised to receive the award. "I can think of many teachers here at Campbell County Middle School that are deserving of this award," Ruber said. "We have an amazing staff that I am blessed to be a part of, and I am truly honored to have received this award." Ruber is committed to taking care of overseeing the school's Student Technology Leadership Program (STLP), and deserving of the award, said Principal David Sandlin. "Darci is one of the original members that opened up the middle school and continues to do a great job with our technology program,” Sandlin said.
The Campbell County Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3205 and their Ladies Auxiliary have announced three teacher of the year winners and winners of two student contests for 2012. The post awards teacher of the year honors for an educator at each level of elementary, middle school and high school. "Anyone can nominate a teacher for this award and then send their nomination to their closest post to be judged," said Marietta Knuehl, president of the post's ladies auxiliary. "Our teachers were nominated by me on behalf of our post." This year there were no other nominations from outside sources for this year's teacher of the year ALEXANDRIA

Chase College of Law introduces mobile app
STUDENTS GET HEALTHY
Kayla Wilson looks at some of the students' work. AMANDA JOERING ALLEY/COMMUNITY RECORDER
The Northern Kentucky University Office of Information Technology announced its newest universal mobile application, a touch-screen guide to NKU’s Salmon P. Chase College of Law. The app, called Chase@NKU, allows students at the law school to consult their handheld devices to stay informed about upcoming events; explore the Chase Law Library catalog; or gain secured access to job postings, exam numbers and other information. “The legal world is becoming highly mobile and NKU Chase is designed to help our students embrace this reality,” said Michael Whiteman, associate dean for law library services and information technol-
Other Chase@NKU resources include links to news, events and social media that will allow users to remain current about information within the law school. “This is one more step toward providing our students with a practical education that helps prepare them for their life as an attorney,” said Whiteman. In the upcoming months the Office of Information Technology will focus on a Campus Recreation feature for iNKU, the university’s universal application for iOS devices. The new addition will synchronize management of personal fitness, recreation and intramural programs for NKU participants. iNKU is free and available to download in the iTunes store.
ogy. The designers of Chase@NKU concentrated on ensuring exclusivity for Chase students, alumni and faculty, while keeping its navigation user-friendly. The app also delineates user access between employment referral opportunities that are suited to current law students or recommended for experienced alumni. Chase students can navigate educational menus such as iTunes U, an extensive storehouse of lecture downloads which are compiled as a convenient adjunct to study and research outside the classroom. This feature includes a restricted link loaded with topical Chase lectures, tutorials and other presentations.

NewCath baseball: New season, new team
Last year’s Ninth Region baseball championship team is a thing of the past. 2012 is a new season and Newport Central Catholic is approaching it as a new team. “There is no pressure on these kids this year,” said head coach Jeff Schulkens. “We are not trying to win back-to-back; we’re trying to win the Region for this team. This is a different team from last year’s.” The Thoroughbreds graduated nine seniors from last year’s championship team, including two who are playing college baseball this season. NewCath graduated all six pitchers who started games last year. The team’s basketball players only have two weeks of preseason baseball practice under their belts. There are plenty of questions to be answered heading into the season. “I’m not sure what our

strengths are going to be,” Schulkens said. Andy Miller and Josh Cain are the only pitchers with any varsity

experience on the roster this season. The team’s top hitters, Brady Hightchew and Nick Woltermann, will likely spend time in
the starting rotation. Hightchew, the starting shortstop, and Woltermann, a starting outfielder, each batted over .400 last season. Connor Bartels will be the team’s No. 3 pitcher, behind Miller and Cain. With a lack of experienced starting pitchers, defense will be even more critical for the Thoroughbreds. “Our kids know we need to play good defense behind them,” said Schulkens. The most noticeable effect of the 2011 Ninth Region title will be felt on the Thoroughbreds’ schedule. Teams within the Region will have extra motivation to unseat the defending champs. The statewide exposure gained last season led to an invitation to the top regular season tournament in the state. NewCath will square off with the top teams in Kentucky at the Louisville Invitational Tournament held April 2628. “We’ve always played a very

challenging schedule,” Schulkens said. “The more challenging your schedule, the better your kids are prepared.” Even the players who did not contribute to the 2011 varsity team are accustomed to winning. Last year’s junior varsity squad also had a very successful season. The expectation of victory is a feeling that everyone in the NewCath dugout shares. That commonality has helped the new varsity players mesh with the returning varsity players. “We’re mixing in a nucleus of JV and varsity kids,” said Schulkens. “We’re coming together as a team.” The Thoroughbreds open the 2012 season at home against Cincinnati McNicholas March 26. While the NewCath program aims for its second straight 36th District and Ninth Region titles, this remains true: The 2012 Newport Central Catholic baseball team has not won anything. Yet.

Camel bowler takes 4th at state Mustangs oust Camels in team tourney By James Weber firstname.lastname@example.org
LOUISVILLE — The first high school state bowling tournament under Kentucky High School Athletic Association jurisdiction had mostly the same format as the sport had at the club level. It took a while for the Bishop Brossart girls team to realize how prestigious the KHSAA name was to have on a trophy. Once they did, the Mustangs had a strong postseason, ending in them being the last Northern Kentucky team standing in the state tournament and winning some hardware along the way. The Mustangs lost in the quarterfinals to Taylor County March 22 at Executive Bowl in Louisville. After a .500 regular season, the Mustangs beat conference champ Newport in the regionals to advance to the state tournament, and nearly upset regular season champion Campbell County in the regional fi-

JAMES WEBER/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER nal. One week later, the Mustangs reversed that outcome with a 3-2 win over Campbell in the first round at state after they were paired in the bracket. Campbell was the four seed and Brossart 13th. The match play was in the Baker format, in which five

teammates roll two frames apiece during one game. Brossart won 167-142, 171-205, 153-135, 117-171, 167-155. The Mustangs rallied in the deciding fifth game on consecutive strikes by Allison Steelman and Taylor Leick followed by a spare from anchor Delaney Elam.
“We were happy we got here in the first place,” said head coach Jim Klump. “They bowled very well at the end of the season to get us down here. To go up against our archrivals Campbell County and come all the way here to bowl them and beat them was nice. From where we started at the beginning of the
year to where we ended up, it was a big accomplishment for us.” Brossart had fifth-seed Taylor County on the ropes several times in the quarterfinals before losing 146133 in the fifth game. Brossart won 139-116 and lost 204-162 before the teams tied at 204 in game three. Taylor’s last two bowlers
combined for four strikes to finish. Taylor then won game four, 153-136. “They went from just bowling for fun as a club sport to realize the competition level stepped up, and everybody became more competitive as the year went on,” Klump said. “Once they got that taste of doing well, especially in the regionals, that gave us a little momentum and they took it more seriously.” Brossart’s Baker lineup was Kassidy Koetting and Kimmie Ward in addition to Steelman, Leick and Elam. None of them were seniors, but the Mustangs lose four contributors. Campbell County sophomore Erica Biddle bounced back from the Brossart loss to have an impressive singles tournament the next day. Biddle finished fourth out of 32 bowlers in the competition to win a medal. “Fourth in the state is good,” she said. “You think this is the top 32 girls in the state out of 800 or so, so this is a good title to claim.” Biddle, who had a 181 average for the season, averaged 212 in the seven See BOWLING, Page A9

games she rolled March 23 and advanced to the stepladder round of the tourney as the fourth seed. After beating the fifth seed, Kelsey Latta of Graves County, 200-161, she played Tori Doyle of Scott County and lost 237-222. Biddle was leading throughout the match before suffering bad luck in her last two frames, when in each one she left a “pocket” 7-10 split and had an open frame. A 7-10 leave is called an “impossible” split and is rarely converted. Sometimes it results from a bad shot, but other times it comes when a bowler throws a good but not perfect shot that can leave the 7 or the10 pin, but occasionally both. The latter circumstance struck Biddle twice in a row. “It was terrible,” she said. “You hit the pocket and both of them still stand, and you get that feeling of dread, especially in the 10th frame when you could have won it.” Doyle, her opponent, won two more matches to win the state title. “Erica is a great kid,” said Campbell head coach Wayne Heringer. “You throw the ball in the pocket and don’t expect one 7-10, but to get them back to back was a sad ending. She has nothing to be ashamed of. She has two more years and we’re excited about her and our chances as a team.” Biddle, a sophomore, was the Region 5 champion. She credited her state performance to mechanics and mental focus. “Throwing the ball down the lane and keeping it as far down the lane before the break point, trying not to turn my wrists and not bringing my hand behind my back,” she said. “I do that a lot. You need to prepare yourself for ev-
erything and have a Plan B and C if something isn’t working.” “She had her ball working real well for her,” Heringer said. “She kept telling me to keep her mind occupied up there. She tends to get a little nervous but today she was focused and throwing extremely well.” Campbell sophomore Allison McGlasson finished 18th in singles with a 541 (180 average). Freshman Erica Hickman was 28th at 481 (160). Newport’s Katlyn Hoeh finished seventh to earn a state medal. The Campbell boys had a rough go of it in the state boys team tournament. The Camels were the second seed out of 16 teams after an outstanding 1,338 in the event, a 223 average. That included a 290 game from regional singles champion Jordan Racke. The Camels beat15-seed John Hardin in the first round 3-1 (183-166, 220-203, 187-256, 224-152) and advanced to face No. 7 seed Fern Creek in the quarterfinals. Campbell had a 2-0 lead against Fern Creek but lost 3-2 (179-232, 167172, 257-218, 202-173, 204193). The final match went down to the 10th frame. In singles, Jordan Racke finished 17th with a 588 (196 average), and Trey Brun finished 27th with 566 (189). While the competition didn’t change much, the prestige was different. IHigh, as it does for other state tournaments, videotaped portions of the tourney to air on its web site. Ebonite, a tourney sponsor and one of the leading bowling manufacturers, had a presence during the tourney and was filming a promotional video featuring interviews with bowlers. As part of Ebonite’s presence, Kelly Kulick, one of the country’s top professional bowlers, was at Executive the entire time and signed autographs for the bowlers.

call, helping sift through the rubble, or just a hug, all of you helped pick us up and have blessed us. Life is not always pretty and comfortable. Sometimes we are given lemons. So we have a choice. Be bitter and sour or make lemonade. Each of you has been the sugar for our lemonade! It was a bitter blow but you have made it a sweet experience. From my family, and all those who have been affected by the tornado and touched by your kindness, thank you and may God bless you.

COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST
We all have experienced storms and loss in our lives: A cellphone, iPod, family member, home. Maybe to theft, carelessness, fire, death, a mighty wind. Well three weeks ago my family had a mighty storm. Yes, we’ve lost our three homes and stuff. But like the saying goes, for every cloud there is a silver lining. Well first of all we were all safe and we have a handsome, healthy baby boy, Grandma’s little buddy, Aedan. But we were blessed with another silver lining. You! David said a long time ago, “He will send you help” and our wonderful God did just that. Besides our family and friends, he sent Dr. Laura Moore and the delivery staff at St. Elizabeth’s maternity unit, Judy’s Heritage Bank family, the Dixie Heights High School family and you. St. Elizabeth’s staff and ad-

Medal of Honor tribute is overdue
Lighting could illuminate issues Mark Cutler COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST
Glare from new, 120 foot tall ‘high-mast’ lighting installed along the I-275 and I-471 projects is creating a property value nightmare for local residents of Fort Thomas, Wilder, Highland Heights, Southgate and potentially a legal, financial and environmental headache for the taxpayers of Campbell County. Because the I-275 and I-471 roadway is often well below surrounding hill-top homes, nearly all of the new high mast lighting is virtually installed at eye-level and glaring into the bedrooms and backyards of adjoining Campbell County residents. Commercial properties are also affected by the new lighting which is counter-to and overwhelming their own existing neighbor-friendly lighting aesthetics. Safety is always our first goal. However, there’s more to this situation than first meets the eye. Homeowners adjacent to the new lights may see this glare as adding insult to injury compounded with highway traffic noise while spoiling the beauty of nighttime environments in their bedrooms and backyards. Just ask “Whose money are we talking about?” and you can see the neighbors fear the glare from these un-shaded lights are a nuisance interfering with their legal rights to the quiet enjoyment of
their private property as well as reducing the resale values of their homes. Additionally, local governments have an interest here as well because reduced property values also affect the tax base. Even if “you can’t see it from your house”, everybody pays. And there’s more to come with Phase II of KDOT “Revive the Drive” project beginning this week. In a brief conversation with the local KDOT District Office, I was assured the issues of light trespass, light pollution and glare would be addressed after-the-fact in which the KDOT intends to complete the entire highway and lighting project before making any adjustments to the design. As can be seen from neighboring homes and hill-tops where shading has already been installed to many of the fixtures this promises to be an ineffective tactic. It’s easy to see that on the sides where shades are installed- even when you’re at eye level with the fixtures- there’s still significant spillage and ‘flaring’ around the minimalist shades. With few exceptions elsewhere in the Tristate, new highway lighting is using self-shading “Neighborhood Friendly,” full cut-off, 400 watt fixtures providing perfectly adequate and safe lighting while 1,000 watt fixtures- un-shielded and 250 percent brighterhave been specified and installed here. Again, Safety is always Goal #1. But re-
member, excessive lighting doesn’t make for safer highways- accidents still happen in broad daylight. It’s highly likely the existing lights can be replaced and any lighting yet to be installed with Phase II of the project. For all of us as Kentucky taxpayers, the time for making course corrections on lighting the I-275 and I-471 highway reconstruction projects is now. There's no benefit in taking a 'wait and see' approach when the outcome is clearly before us. Let's avoid falling into the inertia trap of complacency after the project is finished when the resources and manpower of lighting crews are available now during the second phase of this project. In the grand scheme of a hundredmillion dollar project, contingency funds must be made available for resolving these issues in a timely manner for the benefit of all concerned. Never again will we have the chance to correct this important issue so easily. With the approach of Earth Hour this Saturday, March 31, from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Earth Day Sunday, April 22,. Let’s remember that every day is Earth Day, and protect the beauty of the natural environment entrusted to all of us.

In a riveting ceremony that honored the most courageous service of all, we unveiled a bronze plaque identifying Kentucky’s 60 Medal of Honor recipients, including the only woman to have earned the medal. The plaque – a decorated bronze tablet 42 inches by 50 inches – will be displayed on the exterior marble wall of the rotunda just inside the main entrance to the building. We were privileged to have attending the ceremony three of Kentucky’s five living recipients of the medal, which represents America’s highest award for valor in action. They were: » U.S. Army Pfc. Ernie West, who earned his medal during a battle near Sataeri, Korea, in 1952. » U.S. Army Staff Sgt.

Republic of Vietnam. » And U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Steve Beshear Dakota Meyer, COMMUNITY then a RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST corporal, who earned his medal in 2009 during a battle in the Kunar Province of Afghanistan. Listening to their medal citations being read, and thinking about the courage they showed, I felt a range of emotions. Anguish and grief, at the violence that exacts such a horrible toll on humanity. Relief, that America and all the world’s free peoples have warriors like these to protect us. Awe, at our recipients’ unselfishness and sacrifice. And pride – as a Kentuckian, as a military veteran myself, and as governor. From the early days of the Bluegrass State – in fact, even before Kentucky officially became a state – people who live here have embodied the commitment of military service, stepping forward time and again to defend this nation and its ideals. Kentuckians have gone wherever that service has taken us – north to the River Raisin, west to the Indian campaigns, and across the ocean to the trenches on the Western Front, the beaches of France, the rugged terrain of Korea, the jungles of Vietnam, the desert sands of Iraq and the mountains of Afghanistan.
Our 335,000 living veterans are testament to that deep tradition. I appreciate the efforts of Rep. Tanya Pullin, Sen. Jack Westwood and others to pass legislation in 2011 authorizing the plaque to call attention to our medal recipients, because they rarely do so themselves. In fact, Medal of Honor recipients generally prefer the focus to be placed elsewhere. They didn’t seek the medal, didn’t ask for it, didn’t lobby for it and were usually surprised to receive it. That’s because you neither compete for the Medal nor win it. You earn it. You earn it with blood, courage and concern for your fellow soldier that thrusts aside concern for your own safety. You earn it for performance in situations that would leave most of us trembling in place. Sixty such stories accompany the names on Kentucky’s plaque honoring those recipients born in Kentucky or who entered service while living here. To learn more about those stories and the Medal of Honor, visit www.cmohs.org Every time I pass this memorial I will remember the chilling stories underlying the reason each name is inscribed there. But I will also feel hope, because the power of our enemies pales in the face of the courage, sacrifice, and dedication to duty demonstrated by these men and woman. Gov. Steve Beshear is governor of Kentucky.

CELEBRATES 30 YEARS
By Amanda Joering Alley email@example.com
NEWPORT — For 30 years, Trent Montessori School has been sharing love, learning and laughter with hundreds of children and their families in and around Newport. Trent Montessori, founded by Jan Haas, opened in September 1981 in an old Victorian house on Overton Street. The house, a Kentucky landmark, was designated the Trent House, leading to the naming of the school. Haas, a graduate of Hanover College, said she had always wanted to work with children, but not as a traditional teacher. After hearing about Montessori education and sitting in at some other Montessori schools, Haas said she knew she had found what she wanted to do. Haas said in Montessori schools, students of a variety of ages are grouped together and learn in a different way, with the curriculum focusing on the independence of the student. “We’re trying to develop the children’s independence in a positive way,” Haas said. “They are allowed to do things for themselves and help other students as well.” The curriculum involves a lot of hands-on learning and a focus on certain aspects of learning at certain ages, when students are at an age that they can most easily absorb certain information. With the groupings of different ages, students learn new things and then have the opportunity to teach others. For example at Trent, when a student learn to tie a bow, they become the “official bow-tier” of the school and all the other students go to them for help with tying shoes, apron strings and more. While Trent started with only four students in1981, it has grown to serve 64 students ages 3 through kindergarten, and has a waiting list reaching as far as 2015. With 30 years under her belt, Haas said she is now seeing her students’ children coming to Trent. Her staff, which include some long time employees, help make the school what it is, Haas said. Haas said unlike other
Jan Haas, directress of Trent Montessori School in Newport, works with students Emme Dumbauld, 6, and Hank Shick, 5. AMANDA JOERING ALLEY/COMMUNITY R schools, she has always allowed her staff members to bring their children to work. “These people become teachers because they love children, so it’s hard to watch other people take care of them,” Haas said. Haas said along with her husband and children, Cheri Helton, who has been an employee at the school for 26 years, has greatly helped her over the years “Cheri is phenomenal, she’s my right hand person here at Trent,” Haas said. Helton said she began working at Trent when he daughter was 1-year-old. Now, 25 years later, her own kids have grown up and moved on, making her time at the school with the children even more special. “Trent has really filled the void of not having young kids at home,” Helton said. “I consider all the kids here my family, and Trent my second home.” Haas said she can’t believe how fast the time has gone. In honor of the 30-year anniversary, the school has been celebrating everything from the students, parents and teachers to Montessori education, friendships and the community.

Alexandria teen a peanut butter star By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
Madisyn Becker, 12, of Alexandria, with jars of peanut butter she is collecting in February for the ECHO soup kitchen in Newport. THANKS TO MELISSA BECKER
ALEXANDRIA — Madisyn Becker, 12, of Alexandria, has donated gobs of peanut butter to the ECHO soup kitchen in Newport after hearing the cost was going up and making it hard to stock. Becker volunteers at the soup kitchen with her family, so a news story about food pantries having difficulties with the increases in the cost of peanut butter got her thinking. “The food pantries like to have the peanut butter because it gives families something nutritious to
eat, and it’s something with a long shelf life they can store,” Becker said. Becker, who is also a junior carrier for The Alexandria Recorder, said her mother Melissa helped her by setting out a collection box at her office. Becker said friends her own age also helped by donating a jar of peanut butter at time. Madisyn is the daughter of Melissa and Matt Becker. “I just thought it was fun, and so I just like doing it,” she said of her efforts to collect the peanut butter. Madisyn’s mother said two large boxes were collected, and
it’s not the first time her daughter has taken on a project on her own accord. Madisyn led a book drive in fifth grade as part of a school work ethic program and took on a project to collect used and new books for children at Paces Creek Elementary School in Clay County, Ky. She also was able to donate nine cases of toothpaste. Melissa said she might point something out to Madisyn, but her daughter then takes the lead. “I might say hey Maddy listen to this,” she said. “I think she’s very mature for her age and she has this sense of righteousness.”

Rita's recipe for naturally colored Easter eggs uses items such as onion skins and red cabbage. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.
Rita shares recipes for Easter, Passover This is one of my favorite columns, as I get to share recipes that are so meanRita ingful to Heikenfeld me. Like the RITA’S KITCHEN naturally colored Easter eggs that we had at Easter when we were kids, and are hugely popular right now. I’ll be making them on Fox 19’s morning show April 3. I love passing this tradition down to my grandkids. And as you’re planning your celebration, remember those who may be alone or having hardship. Invite them to your table, send a card or give them a call.
Glaze like honey-baked ham
For a Community Recorder reader and several others. This makes enough glaze for up to a 12-pound fully cooked ham. If you have a 7-pound ham, use about half the glaze. Leftover glaze can be mixed up together, heated and served alongside. You can leave the ham out at room temperature 30 minutes or so before roasting to take the chill off for better roasting.
1 cup pear nectar 1 cup orange juice 1 cup packed brown sugar 1 cup honey Pumpkin pie spice to taste: Start with 2 teaspoons (optional)
Preheat oven to 375. Mix nectar and orange juice. Bake ham for 20 minutes, basting every 5 minutes. Mix brown sugar, honey and spice. Brush over ham and bake until internal temperature reaches 140, basting every once in a while. This takes about an hour for a 7pound ham, and about 1-1/2 hours for a 10-pound ham.
rected. These dyes take longer than commercial dyes. In fact, I leave the eggs in the red cabbage dye up to 12 hours. Use boiled eggs. Onion skins: In a saucepan, place as many papery outer skins of yellow or red onions that you have. Cover with a couple inches of water. Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer and cook until onion skins have colored the water. Strain. Red cabbage: Use the onion skin method for thinly sliced red cabbage. Beet juice: I use juice from canned beets. Turmeric: Put 4 tablespoons turmeric powder in 2 cups water. Stir and place in pan. Cook until it starts to boil. Remove, let cool but don’t strain. Place eggs in dye, stirring to coat. Let sit in dye until desired color is obtained. When you remove the eggs, gently wipe off with soft cloth or run very quickly under running water to remove turmeric powder.
Toffee and chocolate Matzoh crunch There are lots of recipes for this Passover treat. This is one of the best I’ve found. If you can’t get matzoh, use saltines and omit additional salt. 4 to 6 sheets unsalted matzoh crackers 2 sticks unsalted butter, cut into chunks, or margarine 1 cup packed light brown sugar
ON THE BLOG More ham glazes and tips on buying ham: Check out my blog, Cooking with Rita, at Cincinnati.com ¼ teaspoon salt ¾ teaspoon vanilla 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips 1 cup toasted nuts (optional)
Line a large baking sheet with foil, letting the foil go up and over the edges. Spray foil. Put a sheet of parchment on top. Preheat oven to 375. Line bottom with crackers. Melt butter and sugar together and cook over medium heat, until mixture starts to boil. Boil three minutes, stirring constantly. Be careful so mixture doesn’t burn. Remove, add salt and vanilla, and pour and spread over crackers. Put in oven and reduce heat to 350. Bake for 15 minutes. It will bubble up but if it starts to spot, remove and reduce heat to 325. After baking, sprinkle with chips until almost melted, a couple minutes, then spread with spatula. Sprinkle on toasted nuts. Cool and break into pieces. Keeps a week, covered.

Rita’s naturally colored eggs
It’s a great lesson in food chemistry for the kids, plus they learn to be good stewards of their environment. Eggs made with yellow onion skins will be pale yellow to dark amber. Red onion skins produce eggs that are brick/brown red. Beet juice turns them a pretty pink. Red cabbage is the winner: it makes beautiful teal blue eggs! Turmeric makes the eggs brilliant yellow and reminds me of the marigolds my dad used to plant in our tiny front lawn. For every cup of dye, use a tablespoon or so of clear vinegar. Stir that in after straining, or as di-

Support local green industry professionals Question: Where do you recommend I go to buy replacement plants for my landscape and sprays for my garden? Who can I get to trim my trees? Answer: After two years of drought, then the wettest year in history last year, and now an extremely warm period so far this winter and spring, homeowners and landscape managers need to turn their focus toward replacing trees and shrubs that are in poor health. The best thing you can do is think local when choosing what to buy and where to go for purchasing various landscape trees, shrubs and flowers. Always choose plant varieties that are best adapted to the site conditions in your landscape. The Boone County Extension Service is offering a free class on this topic. Call 586-6101 to sign up for the class, “Tough Trees & Shrubs for Tough Sites,” at 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, March 27. Kentucky has more than 1,200 nurseries and retailers selling hundreds of types of trees, shrubs, groundcovers and perennials. With 120 counties of resources, plant buyers can just about be guaran-

teed to find a way to buy locally without having to drive very far. The Kentucky DepartMike ment of Klahr Agriculture HORTICULTURE sponsors CONCERNS the Kentucky Proud program, which allows individuals to locate local retail garden centers that market Kentucky-grown trees and shrubs to homeowners. The garden center database is easily searchable at http://www.kyproud.com/prodsearch.aspx . Homeowners should select the “Nursery” category to locate garden centers selling plants produced in Kentucky and search by county. Many local nurseries grow their own field stock in local fields, even if not listed on that website. Call them to inquire. Retailers looking to stock their garden centers with Kentucky-grown trees and shrubs can use the Kentucky Grown Landscape Plant Availability Guide searchable database at http:// www.kyagr.com/marketing/plantmktg/plantguide/ PLANT.htm. You will get more hits if you search by “Genus and Species” rather than by common name. Kentucky also has many qualified nursery growers, retailers, landscapers and arborists.
Through its Cooperative Extension Service, the University of Kentucky has many classes throughout the year for the green industry. Kentucky nursery growers and retailers are a very well-trained group of horticulturists and are familiar with Kentucky soil types, weather and other factors that play a role in plant performance. We encourage homeowners to ask for I.S.A. Certified Arborists, Kentucky Certified Nurserymen, and PLANET Certified Landscape Technicians as they look for professionals to help with tree pruning, cleanup, restoration, landscape design and replanting of their property. Horticulturists and arborists who have taken the big step of becoming certified have demonstrated sound scientific horticultural expertise in a range of topics from landscape design and plant identification to plant biology and maintenance of landscape plants. Some great resources for finding these individuals are: http://www.isa-arbor. com/findArborist/findar borist.aspx , http:// www.knla.org/ certified.htm, and http:// www.landcarenet work.org/directory/ memberResults.cfm .

Domaschko cancer benefit will be April 1 A cancer benefit and car show for Boone County resident Tony Domaschko will be 1-6 p.m. Sunday, April 1, at the Union Community Center, 10087 Old Union Road. Domaschko, 43, was diagnosed with stage four colon and bone cancer this past Christmas. Doctors have given him a success rate of less than 10 percent but he has beaten the odds so far. Domaschko has insurance, but after insurance his portion of the remaining balance will be around $15,000. He hasn’t missed one day of work during the aggressive treatments and is raising his 16-year-old daughter, Arielle, by himself. His main priority is to see her graduate from Cooper High School and then college.

The Let’s Talk About It series is named to honor its founder, Danny Miller, an author, scholar and beloved professor whose death in November 2008 shocked and saddened the university and region.

‘On the Alert’ starts in Campbell Community Recorder The Campbell County Office of Emergency Management is pleased to inform Campbell County residents that the county is providing a new method for notifying residents with information during emergencies. This new method is the emergency notification system called “On The Alert.” This new emergency notification system will allow county emergency management and Joint Dispatch staff to provide updates and emergency information in the form of a recorded message that is quickly sent to Campbell County residents across telephone lines. That recorded message begins with the statement, "Hello. This is the Campbell County Emergency Notification System. Please press a numeric key to receive an important message." “This new system offers us a great tool to help improve how we get the word out to the public in emergencies. It is a solid technology that provides several backups that we call 'redundancies.' The Office of
Emergency Management is excited about the communication possibilities our emergency notification system provides,” said William R. Turner, Director of OEM. Here’s how the new emergency notification system deals with residents’ phone numbers:

Section I of the Ordinance creates Sections 156.01 through 156.05, of the Southgate Code of Ordinances, which are part of Chapter 156 of the Code. Chapter 156 of the Code is a new chapter pertaining to the registration and maintenance of vacant residential property. Section 156.01 sets forth the purpose of the new Chapter 156, and Section 156.02 defines terms used in the Chapter. Section 156.03 imposes certain requirements and fees upon creditors in connection with foreclosure actions in which the foreclosed-upon property is or may become vacant. Specifically, Section 156.03 provides: (A) Prior to filing a complaint of foreclosure or executing a deed in lieu of foreclosure on a residential real property located within the City, a creditor shall inspect the residential real property to determine whether it is vacant. If the property is vacant, the creditor shall, on the same day the complaint of foreclosure is filed or the deed in lieu of foreclosure is executed, register the property as a vacant residential property with the City Clerk for the purpose of minimizing hazards to persons and property because of the vacancy. Registration shall be made upon a form provided by the City and must be accompanied by the fee set forth in (D). (B) After filing the complaint of foreclosure or executing a deed in lieu of foreclosure, a creditor must periodically inspect the property for evidence of vacancy. If a residential real property becomes vacant at any time after a creditor files a complaint of foreclosure or executes a deed in lieu of foreclosure, the creditor shall, within ten business days after obtaining knowledge of the vacancy, register the property as a vacant residential property with the City Clerk and pay the fee set forth in (D). (C) Registration of a residential real property as vacant shall include the address of the property and the name and contact information of a person located within the Commonwealth of Kentucky who is authorized to accept service of process on behalf of the creditor. (D) The annual fee for registering vacant residential property shall be sixty (60) dollars made payable to "Treasurer, City of Southgate" and submitted to the City Clerk along with the required registration form. Should the property remain vacant for longer than one year, the creditor must renew the vacant property’s registration by submitting a new registration form and annual fee to the City Clerk. Section 156.04 requires a creditor to maintain vacant residential property by keeping it free of garbage and graffiti; removing weeds and dead vegetation; trimming overgrown plantings; mowing the grass; draining pools; securing all buildings on the property in order to protect them from intrusion by unauthorized persons, animals, birds and vermin; and performing any other maintenance or repairs necessary to ensure that the property does not violate the City’s Property Maintenance Code, Building Code, or any other City ordinance, and does not otherwise constitute a nuisance. Section 156.05 creates penalties for the violation of any Section of Chapter 156 as follows: (A) The violation of any Section contained in this Chapter is a civil offense and shall be enforced in the same manner set forth in §§ 90.04 through 90.07 of this Code. (B) Any creditor that fails to register a vacant residential property with the City as required by § 156.03 shall be subject to a civil fine of One Hundred Dollars ($100.00) payable to the City for each day that the property is not registered. (C) Any person, firm or corporation who violates any provision of this Chapter other than § 156.03 shall be subject to a civil fine of not less than $100, but not more than $500 per day per violation. Each date that a violation of this Chapter continues after a Notice of Violation or Citation has been served in accordance with the terms of this Chapter shall be deemed to constitute a separate offense subject to a separate fine, up to a maximum of $5,000 per citation. (D) In addition to the civil fines set forth in (C), any creditor who violates any provision of this Chapter more than once within a 12month period may be assessed additional civil penalties of $200 per day per violation to a maximum of $5,000 per citation. (E) The City shall possess a lien on property for all fines, penalties, charges, and attorneys’ fees, abatement costs if the City has incurred them, and all other reasonable costs associated with enforcing this Chapter, including the costs of placing a lien on a parcel of real property pursuant to this provision. The lien shall take precedence over all other subsequent liens, except state, county, school, and city taxes, and may be enforced by judicial proceedings. Section II of the Ordinance establishes that any ordinances that are in conflict with this Ordinance are repealed to the extent of the conflict. Section III of the Ordinance establishes the effective date of the Ordinance. The first reading of this Ordinance occurred on 3/7/2012, and the second reading occurred on 3/21/2012, whereby the Ordinance was passed, and signed by the Mayor, attested by the clerk, filed and indexed as provided by law.
