River cities feud with Campbell Co. over money By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
NEWPORT — A battle over state money for “riverfront development” overflowed into the chambers of Campbell County Fiscal Court at the June19 meeting. The president of Southbank Partners and the mayors of Dayton and Newport challenged the fiscal court, saying $75,000 in state funding was meant only for Ohio River development and not projects along the Licking River. South-
bank represents businesses, residents and six cities bordering the Ohio River: Ludlow, Covington, Newport, Bellevue, Dayton and Fort Thomas. The fiscal court voted 2-1 in favor of splitting the $75,000 from the Kentucky Economic Development Cabinet two ways. Campbell County dedicated $25,825 to Southbank, and the remaining $49,175 to Vision 2015 for the Licking River Greenway trails project. Kenton County Fiscal Court approved giving $75,000 from the same exact state fund appli-

cation to Southbank under a joint agreement with Campbell County. Commissioner Ken Rechtin voted against the splitting of Campbell County’s money, and Commissioners Pete Garrett and Brian Painter voted in favor of the split. Rechtin said he voted no because the county was going in a different direction with the money than originally was intended. Southbank President Jack Moreland said the money is needed for riverfront stabilization projects along the Ohio River in Newport and Bellevue.
Southbank is working with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on a feasibility study to get the area in line for federal money to stabilize the riverbanks that’s five or eight years away, Moreland said. “There are things that are going to have be done to both the Newport riverfront and also the Bellevue riverfront that will be temporary measures that will stop that erosion, or we’re going to lose them before we can access the federal dollars,” Moreland said. Moreland said Southbank is
also supportive of the Licking River Greenway project, and only against taking the money away from a fund originally intended for use along the Ohio River. Garrett said the county funded Southbank to the level it would cost to start a project to build a boat ramp in Fort Thomas. Neither Southbank or Fort Thomas were interested in pursuing the boat ramp with a system of trails, Garrett said. There were plenty of other See RIVER, Page A2
RELAY WALKERS FIGHT CANCER ONE STEP AT A TIME
By Amanda Joering email@example.com
NEWPORT — The area’s only independent, nonprofit cancer research facility is opening its doors for an open house and art show. The Wood Hudson Cancer Research Laboratory, located at 931 Isabella St. in Newport, is hosting the event from 1-6 p.m. Saturday, June 29, and Sunday, June 30. Wood Hudson representative Georgia Kinman said the event is meant to serve two purposes, raising money for the facility through the art show and giving the public a chance to tour the facility, including its newest addition, a Biospecimen Repository Center. Tours will be led by students participating in Wood Hudson’s Undergraduate Research Education Program. The repository center, which the center broke ground on in 2007 and completed last year, was constructed to house specimens collected from more than 59,000 local cancer patients that are used in the facility’s research of the disease. Kinman said since the facility’s building is so old and didn’t have proper cooling and sprinkler systems, they wanted to safer place to house the specimens. “The thought of having that space wiped out was quite concerning,” Kinman said. “It made sense to build the addition.” Wood Hudson president Dr. Julia Carter said they held an open house last year for volunteers, but haven’t had a full open house for the public in 10-15 years. Along with the open house, Carter said the facility will be holding an art show featuring works including paintings,

for one of their own by throwing a party for student Logan Morse. Morse, 9, was born with complex congenital heart disease, requiring several heart surgeries starting when he was 3 days old. About a month ago, Morse’s great-aunt Mary Jo Watkins, who is in the process of adopting him, said doctors found a blockage underneath his aortic artery, which
means Morse is now preparing to have his fifth heart surgery. Cyndi Mendell, owner of the academy, said in the past year-and-a-half that Morse has been coming to the school, he’s touched the hearts of everyone there, so when they heard he had to have another surgery, they wanted to do something for him. “He’s just such a great kid and everyone loves him,” Mendell said. “We

really wanted to get everyone together and throw him a party.” As soon as she heard about the party, Shaunna Prince, parent of a student at the school, jumped at the chance to help make it a special occasion. From providing snacks to planning decorations and games, Mendell said Prince helped make the event great. Prince said Morse is a sweet boy who is always happy, full of energy and life, and goes out of his way to make people laugh. “Even with everything he goes through, he never
complains,” Prince said. “He really brings this place to life, so we wanted to do something to give back to him.” Students, parents and special guest Bob Eubanks, the drummer from the band Strange Brew, attended the party. Eubanks, who had given Morse a signed pair of drum sticks a few weeks ago after hearing about his condition and his love of art and music, said he came to the party because he couldn’t pass up the chance to meet such an inspirational boy. “His story really
touched me,” Eubanks said. “This has been a kick for both of us.” Watkins said she was touched that everyone put so much into the party. Through everything, Watkins said Morse has been very brave and strong, but it’s nice to see such an outpouring of support. Morse, a student at St. Joseph School in Cold Spring, said he loves art and the art academy is his favorite place. “I have a lot a friends here,” Morse said. “It’s really neat that they had the party for me.”
for giving them them $25,000, they scolded us for not giving them another $50,000,” he said. Newport Mayor Jerry Peluso said the six member cities of Southbank and the Fiscal Courts of Kenton and Campbell counties signed an agreement in 2012 coming together to seek the funds in question as a group for the Ohio River. “From my perspective, the best thing you can do with this money is shore up that riverbank,” he said. “And if you don’t, we’re going to lose it. We’re going to lose it down by Joe’s Crab Shack where Taylor Creek deposits into the Ohio River.” And at Bellevue’s Beach Park, the erosion is almost up to the sidewalk, Peluso said. Judge-executive Steve Pendery said he wished the wording of the direction of the state law was more conclusive, but us-
ing only the term riverfront left it up for interpretation. “I agree with your interpretation that the money was intended for Southbank,” Pendery said. The county was at a point where if a vote wasn’t taken on something that could be agreed upon, then the money from the state was going to be forfeit, he said. “I’ll just be blunt about it, it’s been difficult to come to an agreement on how to spend the money,” Pendery said. Dayton Mayor Ken Rankle said he had conversations with state legislators outside of Northern Kentucky impressed six cities and two county governments came together and agreed on a plan to work together for the Ohio riverfront. “So, the first time they fund it, we have already screwed it up,” said.
Thomas resident, this is her second show benefiting the facility, where one of the laboratories is named after her mother, who died of breast cancer and was a supporter of Wood Hudson. Hamel, whose father also died of cancer, said she is happy to support Wood Hudson by doing another art show. “I feel like the facility
is very valuable,” Hamel said. “They are taking young people from the colleges and getting them interested in this type of research.” All proceeds from the event, which also includes a silent auction featured a piece by Mary Bunning, will benefit Wood Hudson.

projects to consider, including giving the money to the Licking River Greenway trail idea in Wilder, he said. “So, we’re the Campbell County Fiscal Court, and this is not just the Southbank fiscal court,” he said. “This not the Dayton, Bellevue, Newport, Fort Thomas fiscal court.” Garrett said the state legislature changed language in the legislation, HB 265, to take out wording explicitly referring to Southbank and instead referencing the money for “riverfront” use. Garrett said he disagreed with the position held by the mayors and Moreland that the money was originally intended only for Ohio River use. “Instead of thanking us

Nurse midwives start new practice in Crestview Hills email@example.com
CRESTVIEW HILLS —
The Christ Hospital Physicians Obstetrics and Gynecology is moving into Crestview Hills with some familiar faces. The practice is expected to open mid-July at 330 Thomas More Parkway, Suite 201, featuring certified nurse midwives who relocated from another Crestview Hills practice in May to The Christ Hospital Outpatient Center in Anderson until the new location is ready. Certified Nurse Midwife Robin Centner said she is excited about the new practice, along with her partners and fellow certified nurse midwives Elisabeth Erdman, Shauna Zerhusen and Amanda Dalhover. They are accepting new patients and can be reached at 859-2924885. She said many people don’t know what a certified nurse midwife does. “When people think of an obstetrician, they know what an obstetrician does. As certified nurse midwives only attend 10 percent of all births, not all people know what certified nurse midwives do,” she said. “We provide care for women from their teens through meno-
pause. We’re there for routine gynecological care as well as during pregnancy, labor and delivery.” Centner said several members of this group have been together since 2004. She and Erdman obtained their bachelor’s degrees in nursing from Northern Kentucky University and Master of Nursing from the University of Cincinnati, College of Nursing. Zerhusen achieved her Bchelors of Nursing from Wright State University and her Masters of Nursing from Case Western Reserve in Cleveland and further education in nurse midwifery from Frontier School of Midwifery in Hyden, Ky. Dalhover, who joined the practice this month, earned a Bachelor of Arts in biology and a Bachelor of Nursing from NKU and her Master of Nursing from UC.

NEWPORT — Campbell County's $34.51 million budget for the fiscal year starting July 1 was approved at the June 19 fiscal court meeting. The budget's expenses are $851,407 less with the primary reason being a change where the county no longer processes payroll for the county attorney and child support offices, according to a presentation from Finance Director Matt Elberfeld. Revenue for the 2014 fiscal year is projected to be $1.25 million less than the previous year. The projected decrease is also caused by not receiving the "pass through" revenue for payroll from the county attorney and child support offices for payroll, according to the presentation. Property tax revenue for the county is budgeted to increase by 4 percent from the previous year to collect $277,600 more. There is no budgeted increase for payroll and business license taxes. The county is also expect-
ing an $125,000 increase in state road aid funding. While the county is projecting an almost $120,000 operating deficit, there are no plans for a shortfall. County budgets in previous years have also started out listing an operating deficit. "Our hope is that this budget will be balanced, all the previous budgets have been,” said Judge-executive Steve Pendery. There are some contingencies that can develop over the course of the year that throw a budget out of balance, Pendery said. Major snowfalls can cause a need for more salt and overtime, and state
legislation gets passed sometimes directing the county to spend money or the state to not give the county money, he said. Commissioner Ken Rechtin was the only member of fiscal court to vote no on the budget. Rechtin said he has explained his reasons for voting no to Pendery. One of the biggest sticking points is a $200,000 expenditure in the budget to create new tax collection software tailored for county, he said. Rechtin said he disagrees with the argument that the fragmentation of various county accounts

means there is a need for a new system. The county could use it's existing system, or even take steps to change the system, he said. "The problem isn't collecting taxes,” Rechtin said. “The problem is the fragmentation of the various numbers and systems." The fragmentation of the tax collection system is something the business community has voices displeasure about government operations sometimes, he said. "What we're doing is not fixing it, we're spending $200,000 to accommodate it," Rechtin said.

Alexandria teen publishes fiction book By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
ALEXANDRIA — Hannah Nelson was paid to publish her fictional book “Just One Day” this spring while a junior at Campbell County High School. A Governor’s Scholar
student and tennis and varsity soccer player, Nelson said she never considered writing a book until she turned 15 years old. At age 16, she’s been published. “I got a laptop for Christmas and thought, why not write a book,” said Nelson, an Alexan-
dria area resident. The book took shape after about six months, and after a dozen drafts and revisions, Nelson said she found a publisher willing to pay her to publish the book. Not finishing the book was never an option, she said.
“I just despise quitting,” Nelson said. Balancing playing sports and school work has been a challenge, but well worth the effort, she said. Nelson wrote about what she knows, high school students, but the characters are put on a

the process of writing it, along with seven other books,” she said. Campbell County Middle School language arts and social studies teacher Kathy Trimbur said when she heard about her former student publishing a book she invited her to talk to eighth-grade students in her classes May 23. Trimbur said Nelson admitted to her students that she did not like to read or write until she read the book “The Outsiders” for class. From there, Nelson enjoyed, and kept reading, she said. “When I had her in seventh grade she was a very conscientious student, but this was just a wonderful surprise,” Trimbur said.

thrill ride set in the middle of a war. The main character, 15-year-old Hayden Kolter, is kidnapped along with a group of friends and taken to an uninhabited island where she “comes to learn the hardships of war and survival,” according to a news release for the book from the publisher Xlibris. The book is available for purchase online through Xlibris, and will be available in Barnes and Noble stores. Nelson said she came up with the plot and theme of the book by observing the people around her and was inspired by many types of different music as well.

Dayton looks to boost One to One reading program Reaches out to community for volunteer reading coaches By Amanda Joering firstname.lastname@example.org
DAYTON — Recognizing that early childhood literacy is an important factor in a student’s future academic success, Dayton Independent School officials are working to expand the district’s participation in the One to One reading program. The program, which was introduced at Lincoln Elementary School last year, helps schools recruit, train and support volunteers who serve as reading coaches for struggling readers in first through third grades. Last year at Lincoln, the program brought in six adults and 18 high school students who participated in the sixhour training session to learn reading strategies, then worked at the school once a week for 30 minutes with a student. “It is imperative that our young kids con-
tinue to become readers who no longer worry about saying the words correctly, but instead focus on the messages and ideas being stated,” said Principal Greg Duty. The program saw success last year, Duty said, with participating students seeing an increase in reading scores and a high increase in their fluency scores. Assistant Principal Heather Dragan said along with increasing their scores, the students also had fun through the program. “They really enjoyed meeting with their coaches every week,” Dragan said. “Some of the students even told me it was their favorite thing about second grade.” Along with the benefit to the elementary school students, Superintendent Jay Brewer said the high school students who served as coaches also got a lot from the experience, gaining knowledge about the importance of reading that will come into play if they become parents later in life. For the upcoming
school year, the school is hoping to double the number of reading coaches, Brewer said, allowing even more students to benefit from the experience. Brewer said in particular, they’d like have more male volunteers since only three of last year’s 24 volunteers were male. The district covers the cost of the training, materials and background checks required for all volunteers. Brewer said while he is encouraging more of the district’s staff members to volunteer as coaches, he is also reaching out to the city’s fire and police departments as well as the community to recruit more volunteers. For more information about the One to One reading program, visit www.nkypartners.org/one-to-onereading. For information about volunteering at Lincoln Elementary School, contact Heather Dragan at email@example.com or 292-7492.

PetFest benefits Friends of the Shelter
By Stephanie Salmons email@example.com
BURLINGTON — An annual fundraiser that welcomes pets – and their humans, of course – helps raise money for an organization that aims to help local animal shelters. Friends of the Shelter will host its biggest fundraiser, PetFest, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 30, at Boone Woods Park, 6000 Veterans Way, Burlington. PetFest offers information about animal life saving activities and ways to connect with animal welfare and rescue organizations as well as local related businesses. There will be contests, a pet psychic, a silent auction, pet information, dog trainers and more. The event also features animals up for adoption. Those attending are encouraged to bring their leashed pet. Bonnie Ravenscraft, president of the friends group, said the organization uses money to help the animal shelters in Boone, Kenton, Campbell, Pendleton, Grant and Gallatin counties “for equipment and things their budget doesn’t afford.” “Usually, the biggest money maker we have for the year is PetFest,” she said. According to Ravenscraft, of Florence, group members are very animal-oriented.
Jeff Minks visited the Friends of the Shelter’s ninth annual PetFest in 2011 along with his dog, Nikita. This year’s PetFest is June 30 at Boone Woods Park. FILE PHOTO
“Our main thing is to help these animals to get out of the shelter – to find a good home and be adopt-
able,” she said. For more information about Friends of the Shelter, visit

unique, ever-changing items from more than 50 vendors including Khall Designs all-natural bath and beauty products, Fishs Eddy home wear and accessories and Embellish Jewelry, Thomas plans to take shoppers through the experience of gifting. “The whole foundation behind my concept for this store is the art of gifting,” Thomas said. “The art of gifting isn’t just about the person you’re buying a gift for, it’s also about the experience for the person buying that perfect gift.” Regardless of occasion, budget or the recipients likes, Thomas said she is confident that she can help any shopper who walks through her door. Even with a budget of $10 and only a little information, Thomas said she can put together a great gift. But, it doesn’t end there. Thomas said the art of gifting is a process, which goes beyond picking out the gift. The presentation of the gift with creative, attractive wrapping, offered complimentary at the shop, is also important,

Thomas said. “People love when someone really spends the time and effort on their gift,” Thomas said. “It means so much more than a gift card and at the end of the day, a special gift goes a long way and creates a lot of smiles.” And gifts don’t always have to be for someone else, Thomas said, so shoppers can also count on Fort Thomas Central to find a gift for themselves or decorative items for their home. For Thomas, the art of gifting also includes giving back to the community, which she hopes to do through the services she will provide and the lounge area in the store where the community can come relax and enjoy gourmet pastries. Fort Thomas renaissance manager Debbie Buckley said the store will add something to the city’s cultural arts district in Towne Center. “Barb’s choice of merchandise is exciting, diverse and different than anything we have elsewhere,” Buckley said. “It’s going to be a place to find wonderful gifts, that special decorating item for your own home, fun jewelry items or just spend time with friends over pastry and tea.” Fort Thomas Central is having its grand opening Thursday, June 27.

Campbell Co. graduate never missed a minute ALEXANDRIA — Jordan Racke, of Alexandria, will graduate from Campbell County High School May 31 having never missed a day of class in 13 years. Wednesday, May 22, marked the last day of classes for Racke, and he sealed his perfect record by showing up. Racke said he didn’t set out to have perfect attendance, and was just lucky he was never sick in grade school. “When it got toward the end of middle school and beginning of high school and I hadn’t missed a day or been late, I thought why not go for it,” he said. Racke said scheduling dentist and doctor appointments outside of school hours kept him from missing class time. He said being on time to class was a priority, and he got where needed to be early, and was never late. “They say you’re supposed to be there, so I figured I’ve got to be there,” he said. Racke said he thinks perfect attendance for 13 years will be good to put on a resume, and shows he is responsible. It’s also a fun personal achievement, and it’s something Racke said he’s never heard of anyone else doing. “I figured I could be one of the few that’s done it,” he said. Racke will study sports management, and play on the bowling team at Morehead State University this fall.
Michael Florimonte, business and marketing teacher at the high school, said there are many special students walking the halls, but Racke is extraordinary. “He’s just a very special person,” Florimonte said. “His work ethic is just unmatched.” Racke also gives extra outside of class, and was one of the students leading the donation drive for art teacher Nick Schoening, who is battling leukemia. Florimonte said he also oversees the school’s Camel Store, where Racke has been very involved. Between 70 to 90 students apply to be one of 16 students picked to work in the store, he said. The store sells prom tickets, spirit wear, and other merchandise, and proceeds benefit programs for all students, Florimonte said. Racke never missed an opportunity to volunteer or help with any club he was involved in unless it might cause a conflict. When a fundraiser for the student group (Distribution Education Clubs of America) happened during the day, Racke had only one request, Florimonte said. “The first thing he said was ‘Hey, make sure this is excused,’” Florimonte said. “He was really committed.”

The 2013 Campbell County/Campbell Community Recorder Sportswoman of the Year is Maddie Blevins. THANKS TO THE BLEVINS FAMILY
Bellevue’s belle excels at all By Adam Turer email@example.com
Not many high school athletes have an award named after them before they graduate. Then again, not many student-athletes do as much for their school as Maddie Blevins did for Bellevue High School. She was the school’s valedictorian, prom queen, captain of the softball team, and the entire girls cross country team. Maddie Blevins represented Bellevue to the fullest. That’s why Blevins is the 2013 Campbell County/ Campbell Community Recorder Sportswoman of the Year. She received a pair of Cincinnati Reds tickets courtesy of the team. Blevins played varsity softball since seventh grade and set many school records. She ran cross country from 10th to 12th grade and as a senior, was the Tigers’ only female runner. She was also the secretary of the student council, class president her junior and senior year, National Honor Society member catch your breath - Student Tech Leadership Program president, student liaison to the board of education, academic team and member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. “Maddie Blevins has excelled at every endeavor she has taken on. She is what every parent envisions their child growing up to be,” Bellevue assistant principal Dave Pelgen said. “Maddie’s desire to achieve in and out of the classroom has placed her head and shoulders above her peers.” In addition to her many contributions within the school, Blevins also contributes in the Bellevue and Greater Cincinnati community. She volunteers at the Cincinnati Zoo, the Hoxworth Blood Drive, the Flying Pig marathon, and with Redbird Missions. She is known and respected throughout the community. “With Bellevue being such a small school, you get to know everybody and you get to know the community more,” said Blevins. “(Volunteering) is infectious.” Maddie has always been a leader and took advantage of the many leadership opportunities presented during her time at Bellevue. She made sure that she did everything she could to raise the bar for her classmates and community. “The ability to try to help made me want to get into leadership positions,” she said. “I wanted to have not just my voice, but the voices of my peers heard.” She was the only senior on the softball team this year. The program announced at its end of season awards banquet that the Tigers MVP award would henceforth be known as the Maddie Blevins MVP award. Maddie will return to the awards ceremony each year to present future winners with the award. She will forever be a Bellevue Tiger, and the school could not be more proud to welcome her back each year with open arms. “Maddie will be dearly missed at Bellevue High School,” said Pergen. “Not only is she the model student, but she is genuinely a well-rounded person. Maddie will be missed most for her friendly personality and contagious

smile that were well known throughout the school.” Coaches, teachers, administrators, and even her own parents are in awe of Maddie and her many accomplishments. Blevins, who will study ecology at Northern Kentucky University, overachieved in high school. But, you wouldn’t know that by asking her. “I am impressed by her,” said her mother, Elizabeth Blevins. “When she puts her mind to something, she does it. A lot of people look up to her.” If you know Maddie Blevins, you can count on Maddie Blevins. She built relationships with her peers, with her young teammates, with her coaches, and with school and district administrators. She was able to lead many distinctly different groups. She was the star athlete, the top class representative, a leader of religious and technology groups. What enabled Maddie to achieve so much and impact so many lives was her pure enjoyment of what she was doing. “Her contributions to the community go beyond being an example for other students,” said Pergen. “She has participated in various volunteer opportunities not for the accolades but for the enjoyment it brings to others.” While many are quick to heap praise and show gratitude toward Maddie for all of her selfless endeavors, Maddie feels that she is the one who benefited from maximizing her high school experience. For the many underclassmen who look up to her, she offers these words of wisdom: “Push yourself. You will always surprise yourself and leave a lasting impact on those around you.”
Colin DuPont doesn’t just accept big changes in his life. He has shown time and again that he does more than adapt — he thrives in uncharted territory. Whether it is changing schools, changing sports, or suddenly becoming a big brother to six children, Colin DuPont has handled change with grace, and is the 2013 Campbell County/Campbell Community Recorder Sportsman of the Year. He received a pair of Cincinnati Reds tickets courtesy of the club. DuPont played three varsity sports at Newport Central Catholic, excelling in golf and providing valuable contributions in basketball and baseball. In addition to his year-round athletic success, DuPont also excelled in the classroom and the community. He was on the honor roll all four years of high school. “He’s the type of kid that really loves sports and has a passion for the game,” said Jeff Schulkens, NewCath’s golf and baseball coach. “Colin is a pretty quiet kid, but he leads by example.” He wasn’t always destined to be a three-sport athlete and star golfer. In fact, it wasn’t until ninth grade that DuPont began to take golf seriously. Colin grew up in the Highlands school district, and was in line to follow in his father’s footsteps at Highlands High School. He played football and was an excellent middle school quarterback. Many thought he would follow in the long line of successful Bluebirds quarterbacks. But he had a change of heart. Prior to his freshman year of high school, DuPont wrote a letter to his father, letting him know that his heart just wasn’t committed to football and that he instead wanted to try varsity golf. He also talked to his parents about enrolling at NewCath, rather than at Highlands. Colin felt that his personality better fit the small school environment. It was possibly the best decision he made. “At the end of the day, that was the best thing that could have happened to him,” said his mother, Julie DuPont. “He wanted to be a small school kid and play three sports.” Despite all of his accomplishments, DuPont remains humble. He won the Thoroughbred award at the end of the basketball season. He earned golfer of the year honors in the Eighth Region from the Kentucky Golf Coaches Association. He was named the winner of the prestigious Walter J. McGaff award, presented to NewCath’s outstanding male student athlete. Most of his awards came as a surprise to his parents; Colin was never one to boast. “He has always been a quiet, eventempered kid,” said Julie. “He’s competitive when it comes to sports, but he has always been a subtle leader.” Colin will play golf next year for Marian University in Indianapolis, on an athletic and academic scholarship.

Four years ago, he did not dream of becoming a collegiate golfer. He put in the extra work to take his game to the next level. At the same time, he did not compromise his efforts in his other sports. He did not play summer baseball prior to his senior year in order to focus on improving his golf game. “That helped his golf, but it didn’t hurt his baseball,” said Schulkens. “I saw his maturity grow from his junior year to his senior year. You really could see his improvement in how to handle adversity.” Colin also handled adversity at home. His family adopted six children from a family friend prior to Colin’s senior year. He went from being the only child at home (his older sister is in college) to being a role model and big brother to six kids, including four boys. “Those young boys worship the ground Colin walks on,” said Julie. “Colin really showed his character (around his new siblings). He’s just a good kid who has a really good heart.” DuPont also made an impact outside of school. The summer before his senior year, the family went on a 10-day mission trip to Belize, and Colin helped build a kitchen for a local school, build houses, and teach Vacation Bible School. The trip was a life-changing event for him, Julie said. “It was all a fun, enjoyable ride,” said Colin. “You have to live up every minute. It goes by pretty fast.”

Confessions of a reluctant runner
I don’t know if anyone has ever told you this before, but running is awful. I have never been tempted to go running because, well, have you ever seen someone mid-sprint? They never look like they’re having fun, no matter what great results they seem to achieve. At least, that’s what I used to think. Over the Memorial Day weekend, as I was contentedly sleeping in and wallowing in sloth, my boyfriend Quincy suggested that maybe, hey, you know, we should go for a run. And I thought, Becky Halter COMMUNITY PRESS “Hm. It seems possible. MayGUEST COLUMNIST be we should go for a run.” Because I am naturally averse to exertion, I didn’t have any official exercise garb. I put on what can only be described as the World’s Homeliest Sneakers, purchased at a discount outlet some years ago, and the sartorial equivalent of plastic foot alligators. Because I apparently have never bothered to procure white gym socks, they were topped off by pink-lavender knee socks, alluringly scrunched down my ankles à la a Hooter’s waitress. I didn’t want to perspire on my cellphone, so I strapped on a plastic wristwatch. Jane Fonda would have been proud. Quincy rewarded me with an almost-convincing, “Oh. Wow. Um, you look fine, doll.” For me, the only thing worse than sore muscles is wounded pride. I was about to
have both. We arrived at a bucolic walking trail and started with some demoralizing warm-up stretches. Because Quincy has an athletic past, he showed me the ropes. My abs got a great workout laughing at ridiculous-looking lunges, teetering hamstring stretches and torso contortions. Touching my toes in my yoga clothes in public with an enthusiastic man and plethora of ‘80s accessories, I learned my first and possibly most important lesson about running: You can’t be afraid to look stupid. Running is like singing karaoke: You don’t have to do it well to have a good experience. After an appropriate amount of sidewalk silliness, Quincy and I walked for maybe a half a mile, finally amping up to a slowish run-jog. I immediately wanted to die. I had full-on heart-pounding, snot-flowing, head-throbbing misery, down to the horrific gasping sounds and flailing limbs. After what seemed like seven hours (probably closer to two minutes), we decelerated back to a walk. Quincy grinned and said, “Good job!” That moment was my second epiphany: Running is only possible for me with an enthusiastic cheerleader/taskmaster. For the entire five-mile loop, Quincy took me to task with equal measures discipline and adoration, pushing me to run more than I ever thought possible (or desirable) and then following up with lavish praise. I survived an hour of in-

termittent running and walking and while I would never characterize it as “fun,” I noticed an unsettling trend: It seemed to get easier and less death-inducing with each sprint. Yes, I was pooped at the end but I was also in a somewhat delirious state. Just moments prior I had assumed that I would have to be buried beside a trail in unbecoming clothing, and I ended up skipping to the car in a haze of achievement. Epiphany No. 3: Running can be awesome. So if you see someone slogging along through Union looking like an escapee from Sweatin’ to the Oldies, I may not look like I’m having fun, but I’m on my way to feeling awesome.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Community service needed
As a member and officer in two of the service organizations in Campbell County, I’m concerned about the demise of such clubs. A few years ago there were Lions clubs in Bellevue, Dayton, Newport and Cold Spring. Currently, there are two in Fort Thomas and Alexandria. These attempt to serve about 90 percent of the county. Rotary also was much stronger, have clubs in Fort Thomas, Newport, Bellevue and Southgate. Currently, there is one - Campbell County Rotary and it will probably turn its charter into the international organization within weeks. Organizations such as these need to attract members. They cannot thrive on 12 or 13, with only five or six taking active roles. They provide needed roles in the community. Lions is known for its help with eye sight.

coverage for a couple days. What happens when that business works with the local food service organizations? Children get backpacks, shoes, food, clothing, etc. Food banks are filled. Homeless are fed. Potential customers are getting the help they need. And, for a business, a person from that business is seen out in the community. Each organization’s members help determine what is needed. Therefore, more members, more community vision. Campbell County Rotary is in need of immediate growth. It will meet on Wednesday, July 17, for lunch at noon at Highland Country Club, which could be its final meeting. Rotary normally attracts local business and professional men and women, but anyone is welcome to join. Alexandria Lions would also like new faces. It meets the fourth Tuesday of each month at Cold Spring Barleycorns at 6:30 p.m. Look into these and other organizations - K of C, Kiwanis, VETS, etc. All will welcome

The experience we gained in participating in the Trash for Cash litter program was very rewarding for our team. The group covered 10 miles which included a total of 16 participants. We grouped the participants together with about five to a group and spread them out covering the 10 miles on both sides of the roadway. We found many beer bottles and beer cans and also a storage container that had fruits and vegetables in it. One of our participants even found a one dollar bill! We would like to tell our neighbors to please respect our community and dispose of trash properly in cans or bins. Thanks again for the experience!

Freestore harvests Giving Fields to meet local needs VIDEO: Watch video of some of the crops being harvested for local food pantries at The Giving Fields in Melbourne at www.Nky.com.
By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
MELBOURNE — People seeking food assistance through the Brighton Center in Newport will soon taste the bounty of some of the fresh produce hand picked June 20 at The Giving Fields in Melbourne. The Giving Fields, in its third year of operation, is a program of The Freestore Foodbank. Teams of Brighton Center and Liberty Mutual employees volunteered to pick the latest crops including kale, Swiss chard and broccoli. Most of the fresh produce picked June 20 is going to Northern Kentucky partner agencies including Brighton Center, said Freestore Foodbank President and CEO Kurt L. Reiber. The Freestore is preparing to harvest 200,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables at the fields this year. In the first year of the fields, 65,000 pounds of produce was harvested, and it was a learning process about the farming program and volunteers, Reiber said. “Last year we were able to generate and harvest 175,000 pounds of fresh produce, and that supported 12 food pantries right here in Northern Kentucky,” he said. Impressive, because volunteers, the community and corporate support all came out,

Reiber said. “Everyone really rallied around bringing fresh produce into the homes of our hungry neighbors in need,” he said. Molly Woods, the Freestore’s farm manager, said this year’s crops also include onions, green beans, peppers, eggplant, tomatoes and cucumbers. New crops planted this year include sweet potatoes and grapes, Woods said. Raised herb
garden boxes will also provide people with limited mobility who are interested in volunteering a way to help, she said. Among the nine people volunteering with the June 20 harvest from the Brighton Center were Lauren Copeland, family center coordinator, and Beth Hodge, manager of volunteer donations. Brighton Center volunteers come the first and third Tues-
day and Thursday during the growing season to work on the farm, Copeland said. People receiving the produce know Brighton Center helped pick it and it’s coming from Campbell County, she said. The produce offers a wider variety than is available in canned goods given to them, Copeland said. “And it also teaches families how to provide healthier meals,” she said. “It’s a lot about education to our families who don’t always have access to fresh fruit or fresh vegetables.” Some people don’t know how to prepare the fresh produce, and Brighton Center offers instruction and ideas of how to add it in meals, Copeland said. It’s a wonderful experience for staff or volunteers from Brighton Center to harvest the food themselves, Hodge said. “And it’s literally going from the fields straight to the center and ultimately to people’s tables,” Hodge said. “And you can’t get much fresher than that, so it’s pretty neat.” For information about the Freestore Foodbank and how to donate to or volunteer at The Giving Fields visit http://fsfbmedia.org/.

Reiber was joined by fellow members of the Leadership Cincinnati Class of 2013 at The Giving Fields in Melbourne. “Our class chose this as a class project to try to take us to the next level,” said Roger Newport, vice president and chief financial officer for the AK Steel Corporation. Newport is one of the chairs of the 11-member team working on the Class’ Development, Expansion and Sustainability project to expand the Giving Fields concept and make it sustainable long-term. A 12-page overview of the goals and progress on the project talks about how this year’s Class helped develop a formal business modelto help create a successful model. The plan is available online at http://bit.ly/givefieldsplan. The goal for a future Leadership Cincinnati class is creating another Giving Fields in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky region. “Our team believed it made sense to help Kurt and the Freestore Foodbank team to fill a basic need - nourishment,” Newport said. “People in the communities where we live can’t learn if they are hungry and can’t be productive at work if they haven’t eaten. The Giving Fields helps to address this great need in our region and in a sustainable and healthy manner.”

Celebrate summer with tomato appetizer, preserves I opened my freezer yesterday and had to laugh. Nestled among the organic mango slices, edamame, homemade baby food and hibiscus mint syrup were a giant box Rita of storeHeikenfeld bought Popsicles RITA’S KITCHEN in every shade of the rainbow, three Kit Kat candy bars and five Baby Ruths. Well, I guess that’s called balance.
16 oz. refrigerated crescent rolls 16 oz. cream cheese, softened Zest of 1 lemon 2 eggs 1 clove garlic, minced 14 oz. can artichoke hearts in water, drained and finely chopped 1 cup Parmesan cheese, divided 2 plum tomatoes, sliced 2 tablespoons fresh parsley 1 ⁄2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll crescent rolls, press the seams to fit 9-inch by 13-inch or jellyroll pan, and press the rolls up the sides just a bit if you can. Bake 10-12 min or until light golden brown. Remove from oven, let cool. Mix cream cheese, zest lemon, eggs, garlic, artichokes and 1⁄2 cup Parmesan cheese. Spread over crust, and then arrange tomato slices over filling. Combine 1⁄2 cup cheese, parsley and black pepper in small bowl and sprinkle evenly over filling. Bake 25-30 min or until light golden brown and set. Cool 10 minutes, cut into 12 squares and cut each square in half diagonally. Makes about 24 appetizers.
Aunt Margaret’s classic tomato preserves I may have hit upon something unique here. After I published the classic strawberry jam recipe, I received several inquiries about other classic/put-up preserves and jams, so I will be sharing those heirloom recipes as we go into summer. One request was from Lana, a Florence reader who said “My grandma made tomato preserves with a lemon wedge in every jar. There was no cinnamon, just sugar, lemon and tomatoes. No one seems to have a recipe for it.” Well, guess what, Lana. I do and it’s from
If you like, add 1 tablespoon mixed pickling spices and 1⁄2-inch piece fresh gingerroot tied in cheesecloth or in a tea ball and add with the sugar, lemon and water. Remove after you let the preserves stand in cool place. Or add a piece of cinnamon stick to each jar before sealing. You can use green tomatoes if you like.

my sweet Aunt Margaret, who we call our second mom. Aunt Margaret makes tomato preserves like Lana’s grandmom. Aunt Margaret goes to taste on most things, but I did nail down this recipe with her last year when she gifted me with a jar. 11⁄2 quarts peeled, small yellow or red tomatoes (about 2 pounds or so) 4 cups sugar 1 thinly sliced lemon 3 ⁄4 cup water
To peel tomatoes: Cut an “x” into the bottom end, plunge into boiling water for a minute or so, then when you see the “x” curling at the edges, take the tomatoes out and, when cool enough to handle, pull the skin off with a knife, using the “x” as a tag. Combine sugar, lemon and water and simmer gently for 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook gently until tomatoes become transparent, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Remove from heat.
Cover and let stand 12-18 hours in a cool place. Remove tomatoes and lemon from syrup. Boil syrup 2-3 minutes or longer to thicken. Return tomatoes and lemon to syrup; boil one minute. Remove from heat. Skim foam if necessary. Ladle hot preserves into hot jars, leaving 1⁄4 inch head space. Wipe rims with clean wet cloth. Adjust caps. Process 20

Veterans Outreach Division moves to Cincinnati in July Community Recorder
The Cincinnati Veterans Affairs Medical Center’s Healthcare for Homeless Veterans Community Outreach Division will relocate from the Fort Thomas Division, to 907 Vine Street, Cincinnati in late July 2013. The program’s mission of community outreach to homeless veterans moves them in a location with close access to resources, community partners and programs. “While we are a highly mobile division, having a low-access, storefront office strategically located on Vine Street will increase our effectiveness in winning the war on Vet-
eran homelessness,” said Chris Chatfield, director of the Community Outreach Division. “Veterans will be able to easily access our services, and we are also located in close proximity to other agencies which serve homeless and lowincome persons. Community partners helped us locate this space, and we have also been welcomed by Downtown Cincinnati, Inc. We look forward to being a good neighbor while also helping homeless veterans, currently clustered downtown, get the help they deserve in locating and maintaining permanent housing in Hamilton County.” Three Homeless Veteran Supportive Employment Program staff will remain at the Fort Thomas Division.
When white specks show up on shrubs Question: I just noticed that my evergreen Euonymus shrubs and Pachysandra ground cover plants have a lot of white specks on the stems and under the leaves, which are turning yellow and dropping off. What are the white specks? How can I save my plants? Answer: This is a common insect problem known as “Euonymus Scale.” If you look closely, you’ll probably also see many tiny gray or brown specks, but these are more difficult to see against the stems. Euonymus scale females are dark brown or gray, about 1/16 inches long, usually found on the stems, while the male scales are smaller, nar-

Klahr Eggs hatch in HORTICULTURE CONCERNS May, with crawlers, as small as tiny specks of dust, active through September. Control starts with removal of heavily infested and sickly branches. Insecticidal soaps are very effective against both active and settled crawlers. Summer horticultural oils, which kill by smothering, and insecticidal soaps are safe to use and are especially good choices for sensitive areas, such as where people are present soon after treatment. Because of their short residual, they also help to conserve beneficial species. When using summer oil sprays, always refer to the product label for guidelines on specific plant sensitivity and any temperature restrictions. Horticultural oil products labeled as summer oil, superior oil or Volck Oil may be used on tolerant plants during either the growing season or the dormant season, but at different

spray concentrations. A quick-kill alternative to oil sprays is contact insecticides applied during the growing season when the crawler stages of the scales are present (especially in May and June). Look for crawlers by sharply tapping an infested twig or branch over a white paper. Crawlers are often orange, brown or purple and appear as tiny, moving specks of dust. Because of their waxy protective covering, other stages of scales are not readily controlled by contact insecticides. Sprays will not reach crawlers that have settled under old scales. A good alternative is offered by the easilyapplied soil drench or granular systemic insecticide, Imidacloprid (see “active ingredients” on label), offered in
products such as the Bayer Advanced Tree & Shrub Insect Control or Bayer Advanced Protect and Feed. This product takes a few days to start working, but provides season-long pest control for many plants. Other insecticides registered for scale crawler control on outdoor plants include: Cygon (dimethoate), Malathion, Orthene (acephate) and Sevin (carbaryl). Although resistance to insecticides may occur in some cases, failure of contact sprays is more often the result of not timing the applications to coincide with crawler activity. Multiple sprays and thorough coverage may be needed for complete control. Mike Klahr is the Boone County extension agent for horticulture.

Founded in 2007, Growing Sound produces research-based songs and accompanying products that aim to build social and emotional skills in young children. Written and performed by Children Inc.’s music director, composer David Kisor, the products are tested in the organization’s earlychildhood classrooms in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati. They are sold online to educators, child care centers and parents across the globe. “Kids love the songs, and they have such positive, useful messages,” said Lily’s mother, Rachel Morgan of Cheviot, whose two children are enrolled at Children Inc.’s Montessori Early Learning Academy. “They’re unique and fun, and easy for small children to remember. “That’s a great tool, especially during those frustrating and teachable moments.”
Growing Sound develops songs that resonate with both children and their caretakers, and teach important lessons in resilience, positive psychology, mindfulness and executive brain function, according to Tom Lottman, Children Inc.’s deputy executive director. They use key insights from child development and neuroscience research from renowned sources, such as the Devereux Foundation, a nonprofit behavioral health organization based in Pennsylvania. “Very early in life, children develop internal dialogue about themselves and the world – and we want that to be positive,” said Lottman, who also serves as Growing Sound’s research director. Introducing children to songs during that critical time that help facilitate the internalization of success and self-esteem, such as Kisor’s “I Can Do It,” and “Big, Strong, Smart, Wonderful Me,” he said. Growing Sound’s songs are designed for children from birth to early elementary school and tackle a wide range of topics from forming attachments and friendships to potty-training and dealing with “boo-boos.” There’s also a whole series for toddlers on “settling down” and managing one’s own behavior. A new anti-bullying series is designed for both young and older children. Kisor said he usually

gets ideas for songs by observing children in Children Inc.’s classrooms, and new topics from research findings in child development. “My office is also a recording studio,” said Kisor. “Every subject calls for something a little different, but all of our songs have one thing in common: they promote positive social and emotional development in children.” Growing Sound’s songs also help support Children Inc. Proceeds from the sale of the CDs and downloads go right back into the organization. Aside from its Growing Sound venture, Children Inc. serves more than 3,500 children every day at more than 90 local sites and employs more than 250 educators. Through the agency’s nationally-accredited early education and child care centers; school-age care centers at nearly 50 local schools and family child care network; and various community programs, including a home visitation program for
first-time, low-income mothers, a service-learning program for school children of all ages and training programs for parents, educators and early childhood professionals across the country, the nonprofit keeps its focus on positive child development. Music is a big part of encouraging that positive development in children, according to Kisor.

national accolades and recognition. He recently attended National Head Start Association’s annual conference to share research in the field and play his music. There weren’t any children in the audience, but his songs resonated with the group nonetheless, according to Lottman. “(Growing Sound) songs have a powerful impact on adults as well,” Lottman said. “We could all use a little more positive motivation in our life.”
“Songs are very powerful. ... Words and music together enter the brain differently,” Kisor said. “They’re processed together in a way that involves several regions in both hemispheres of the brain. We’re having fun through music, but we’re also using research to help to get children prepared for school and future success.” Kisor shares his music with children enrolled in Children Inc. programs each week and performs at a variety of venues, including free concerts at public libraries. He’s also traveled as far as South Africa to perform for children, and advocate for the importance of social and emotional learning in young children and how it can be accomplished through music. His work through Growing Sound has received numerous

Nosey’s antics gaining fame “Pardon me, but is this Nosey?” The woman asked breathlessly, running up to me. “I mean, the Nosey I read about in the newspaper all the time?” “Yes, this is Nosey,” I replied, a bit surprised. “You are sure this is the Nosey, the one who got locked in the car?” she asked, turning to wave at a friend and calling her over. “Come over here, this is her, this is the Nosey dog I keep telling you about.” My husband Tom and I had taken our Basset Marsie Hall Hound, Newbold Nosey to MARSIE’S the annual MENAGERIE It’s a Pet Affair fundraiser in Dayton. It turns out that the woman who stopped us was a regular reader of the Community Press and a big fan of my “Marsie’s Menagerie” column. We spent a long time visiting and as she and her friend lavished attention on Nosey, scratching her ears, patting her belly and taking her photo, they proceeded to tell us which columns they liked the best and chortle over what they called, “Nosey’s Antics.” Needless to say, they made my day, my week, my month and my year! I get a great deal of pleasure out of writing about pets and sharing snippets from Nosey’s life. Tom and I laughed on the way home about how popular Nosey is. We’ve had dogs in the past and our family, friends and neighbors have always liked them, but, we’ve

never seen anything like the reaction that people have when they see Nosey. It has been that way since she was a tiny puppy. Admittedly, she is beautiful, traditional “Hush Puppy” Basset Hound with a pedigree that doesn’t stop. Walking down the street with her we are guaranteed to be stopped by nearly everyone we see. Grown men have crossed the street to come over and see her. It doesn’t hurt that Nosey is the friendliest dog I’ve ever known. She greets everyone as though they are long lost friends whom she has been waiting to see. Her tail wags so much that I’m surprised it isn’t super skinny from all of the exercise!

tos of her every day. If I miss a day, I get messages asking what is up with Nosey, why haven’t I posted anything, is something wrong? It sometimes feels as though I write a daily comic strip. For example, this photo of my husband and Nosey outside of Dixie Chili in Newport garnered: Four “Love you, Noseys,” three “Precious” comments, two “Awwwws”, two “Adorables,” two variations on “Cute” and one “What a sweetheart!” And, that’s just the way I like it.

Get ready for success
“God will never place you in a situation until you are ready to be successful in that situation.” It’s not scripture, but it is a message that was provided for me at a time when I really needed it. And it was proof that I was where I was supposed to be, and proof that God would ensure my success in the situation. And more importantly, it is backed by scripture. “Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to His plan.” (Ephesians 1:11)

Do you need this message today? An assurance Julie House COMMUNITY PRESS that God is GUEST COLUMNIST working out the messy situation you are in according to his plan. Maybe you need the comfort and peace of knowing you are on the right path. Let me assure you that sometimes it does not happen overnight. Yet if you will be relentless in your quest, God will provide the answers. Here are some lessons I’ve learned along the way about God’s plan for working out the unclear situations in life. Fear and worry are not part of his plan. Constantly worrying about how the situation will work out and exploring the “what-ifs” are contrary to trusting God to impact the outcome. God wants us put our full faith and trust in him, even when the way seems unclear. I must choose trust. It doesn’t come naturally. We live in a cynical world, and we are born with a seeing-is-believing attitude. Every day on our journey to live an
obedient life, we must choose trust. “How do I choose to trust?” One of the ways we make the conscious choice to choose trust is with an open Bible. Struggling with some decisions recently, my mother suggested I watch a preacher she is very fond of, Charles Stanley. Among the many lessons I learned in the 50-minute sermon, I will never forget this one: “You cannot live an obedient life with a closed Bible.” If you feel as though you’ve no idea where God is taking you, or why he has allowed the path you’re on to continue, remember what he says: “Study this book of instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything that is written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. This is my command – be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:8-9) Julie House is a resident of Independence, and founder of Equipped Ministries, a Christian-based health and wellness program with a focus on weight loss.

Smoking laws still a debate Community Recorder
A little more than 34 percent of Kentuckians are covered by local smoke-free laws that ban smoking in workplaces and enclosed public places or buildings open to the public, state tobacco prevention and cessation officials told state lawmakers today. Those Kentuckians live or work in 23 municipalities with comprehensive smoke-free ordinances that ban smoking in all workplaces and public areas or facilities, Kentucky Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Program official Angela Criswell told the Tobacco Settlement Agreement Fund Oversight Committee. The municipalities are among 37 local governments statewide, including Louisville Metro and the Lexington-Fayette Urban County government, covered by either a comprehensive smoke-free ordinance or some degree of smoke-free regulation, according to the Kentucky Tobacco Policy Research Program.
Smoke-free ordinances limit exposure to secondhand smoke, which Criswell said can trigger asthma attacks, cause lung disease, and decrease the heart’s ability to pump blood leading to heart disease or heart attack. “There is no safe amount of secondhand smoke,” she said. Criswell’s 13-year-old program is funded in part with Kentucky’s share of the 1998 Master Settlement Agreement, a multibillion-dollar settlement reached between 46 states, including Kentucky, and the nation’s cigarette companies. The program received $2.12 million in tobacco settlement dollars in fiscal year 2013 and is budgeted to receive $2.09 million in tobacco settlement funds in fiscal year 2014 which begins July 1, Criswell said. About 80 percent of the program’s tobacco settlement funding is allocated to local health departments for tobacco cessation and prevention programming and to cover tobacco coordinator costs,

she said. In response to a question from Rep. Jonathan Shell, R-Lancaster, state Health Programs Branch manager and former Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Program manager Irene Centers said the state’s smoking rate dropped from 32 to 25 percent between 2000 (when the Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Program was established) and 2010. Some of the credit for the decrease is owed to Kentucky’s “quit line”—1-800QUIT-NOW—which smokers can call to receive counseling on how to kick the habit, although Criswell said additional funding for NRT (nicotine replacement therapy) for smokers could improve the state’s “quit success rate” significantly. With additional NRT
funding, Criswell indicated that Kentucky’s current quit success rate of 26 percent—which she said is above the national average—could reach 40 percent. NRT is now being offered through the program for a limited time with funding assistance from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), she said. “We see that (additional funding) as a very real need,” she said. Committee co-chair Sen. Paul Hornback, RShelbyville, praised the program’s work. “You are to be commended for the recognition you’re getting because of how well your programs are doing,” he said.

hot and humid environments. Many employees suffer heat-related illnesses, and tragically, some can even perish due to extreme conditions. In order to minimize the adverse effects of exposure to extreme heat, cabinet employees will be providing information related to the prevention of heat-related illness. Employees and employers also will receive instruction on how to recognize the signs and symptoms and how to handle heat-related health emergencies. One important fact to remember, according to Labor Cabinet Secretary Larry Roberts, is that heat illnesses and deaths are preventable. “Co-workers should routinely check on each other during extreme con-
ditions. Remember three words: water, rest and shade,” Roberts said. To protect workers, employers should: » Learn the signs and symptoms of heat-induced illnesses and what to do to help the worker » Train the workforce about heat-induced illnesses » Perform the heaviest work in the coolest part of the day » Slowly build up tolerance to the heat » Work in pairs » Drink plenty of cool water » Ask employees to wear light, loose-fitting, breathable clothing » Take frequent breaks Additional information is available at http:// www.osha.gov/SLTC/heatillness/index.html

Energy Alliance lends helping hand with loans Community Recorder
The Greater Cincinnati Energy Alliance recently surpassed a milestone, having lent out more than $1 million to local homeowners through its Greater Cincinnati Home Energy Loan Program (GCHELP). GC-HELP finances whole-home energy efficiency upgrades for homeowners who participate in the Energy Alliance’s nationally recognized Home Performance with Energy Star Program, which was developed through the organization’s participation in the Department of Energy’s Better Buildings Neighborhood Program. GC-HELP was created in 2011 with support from the Greater Cincinnati Foundation and in partnership with AFC First Financial Corporation. GC-
HELP is available to residents of Hamilton County in Ohio and Boone, Kenton, and Campbell counties in Kentucky. By removing the barrier to investment in energy efficiency with a low-interest loan and a quick and painless application process for homeowners, GC-HELP makes energy efficiency projects more manageable and encourages deeper home energy improvements. When a homeowner chooses to improve their home through the wholehome approach to energy efficiency, they are improving the way the home works as a system. Homeowners start saving money from the day a project is completed. On average, every dollar invested in energy efficiency generates three dollars in savings.
