Voters will decide South Branch tax By Chris Mayhew

COLD SPRING — The Campbell County Public Library will ask voters if they are willing to pay a tax increase to fund a new South Branch library. The library’s Board of Trustees is putting the South Branch project on hold until after the ballot measure is decided in the Nov. 6 election. The library board unanimously approved putting the South Branch on hold and issuing a 2012 tax rate of 9.4 cents per $100 of assessed property value at the July 17 meeting in the Cold Spring

Branch. The 2011 rate was 7.4 cents per $100 of assessed value. The new tax rate, a 27 percent increase from 2011, will cost the owner of a $100,000 house $20 extra. Immediately after approving the 2012 tax rate, the five-member Board of Trustees approved a motion, by a 3-1 vote, asking the county clerk to place a question on the Nov. 6 ballot. Board member Paul Johnson read the motion to place the 2012 library tax rate on the ballot in order to waive the need for a resident-driven petition process to ask that the tax rate be recalled. Johnson said the library was


The library estimates building a 28,000-square-foot South Branch will cost $5 million. » In 2007, the library purchased land fronting U.S. 27 at 1045 Parkside Drive, Alexandria. » The library shelved plans to build the new branch 2008 because of economic conditions. » The library revived the plans to construct the library in July 2011 and held five public information sessions to receive comments. The library’s director announced the intent to increase property taxes to 9.4 cents per $100 of property value to pay for the South Branch at this time.

asking the ballot language to indicate the library’s proposed tax rate of 9.4 cents per $100 of assessed value was for “constructing and operating a new library

facility in southern Campbell County.” Board secretary Steven Trumbo was the lone dissenting vote. “And frankly I think if the Tea

Party and the people who oppose it types want to oppose it let them find the signatures,” Trumbo said. Board vice president Angela Siddall said her decision to abstain from voting should not be construed as a lack of support for the South Branch on her part. Siddall said she was still processing details about the petition and ballot process, and she needed more time to work out her position. Larry Robinson of Cold Spring said during the meeting’s public comment period he represented the Tea Party, and if the board See LIBRARY, Page A2

Heroin deaths on the rise, expected to continue By Amanda Joering Alley

With a heroin epidemic sweeping the area, Campbell County has seen an increased number of deaths from heroin overdose, with no slowdown in sight. Campbell County Coroner Mark Schweitzer said in 2010, the county had five deaths from heroin overdose. In 2011, that number rose to 12, with eight happening in the last six months of the year. So far in 2012, the county has had 18 deaths from heroin overdose, putting it on course to have about 36 by the end of the year, Schweitzer said. “From every perspective, this heroin problem is a terrible thing,” Schweitzer said. “With the way things are, I expect it to get worse.” Schweitzer said the overdoses are affecting people across the board, from the young to the old, the rich to the poor. Regardless of whether the drug user is snorting the drug, injecting the drug, or finding another way to take it, they are dying from it all, Schweitzer said. When called to the scene, Schweitzer said he spends time examining the body and its surroundings and talking with witnesses, which often include friends and family members of the deceased person. While he does look for certain things at the scene that may suggest heroin overdose, the drug is routinely found in a person’s system using a test that detects a product that is unique to heroin and will only show up if the person used heroin less than 30 minutes before dying. Schweitzer said he has seen first hand the effect these over-

doses have had on local families, who he meets with in every case and often just need to vent. In each case, Schweitzer said he takes his job as coroner seriously and is compassionate about it. “I understand that death is an individual tragedy in a family and that their loved one is not just a number,” Schweitzer said. Schweitzer, who has been a coroner in Campbell County since 1998, said this is the worst problem with heroin he has seen in the county. There was a small surge of usage and overdoses about 10 years ago that led the community to rally together to address the issue, Schweitzer said. While he doesn’t know the solution to the current heroin issue, Schweitzer said spreading awareness may help, and he feels a sense of duty to the public to make them aware of what is going on right now. “If I had seen a flu virus that was killing 36 people a year, I would have an obligation to tell residents about it, and this is no different,” Schweitzer said. Schweitzer said after what he’s seen, he knows how bad the problem is and doesn’t see it getting better anytime soon. The addiction, which in many cases he’s found starts with an addiction to pain medicine, is so strong that in one case, Schweitzer went to a scene to examine a body and while talking to a friend of the deceased person who was with the person when they died, the person admitted they had been doing the drug together. “As I was leaving, I told him that we’d be back for him next if he continues using heroin,” Schweitzer said. “He just said, ‘I know.’”

daughter Anna is also performing in a Kincaid play for the first time. Kincaid productions are familiar to her daughter already because they practice lines together, Pack said. “Anna, since she could talk, has been my understudy,” she said. Myers, of California, said many people might not realize there are a lot of people from Campbell County who perform in the Kincaid production annual-


Myers said he has been involved in Kincaid productions since the theater’s beginning. The theater is a mixture of community volunteers and professionals working together he said. Rather than modern plays, the theater has been committed to producing classics all ages will enjoy, Myers said. “People, they want to take their grandchildren to

see the older shows,” he said. Campbell County High School graduate Tyler Gabbard of Alexandria, who is studying at New York University, is the stage manager for Kincaid this summer. Gabbard, who will graduate in December with a bachelors in drama with a focus on theater design and administration, has already worked as a general management intern on Broadway shows including “Jersey Boys” and “Jesus Christ Superstar.” “I don’t know how I got there, but somehow its where I ended up and I’m enjoying it,” he said. Gabbard said coming home from New York City in the summer and working at Kincaid is fun for him. “It’s just great to be able to go home and get a little break and still do theater,” he said.

went ahead with the tax increase, he and others would work to get the signatures to put the issue on the ballot. After the meeting, Robinson said the library’s decision to put the question on the ballot was “the right thing to do.” “All library taxing issues should be approved by the voters, that’s what we

wanted,” he said. Robinson was one of 10 people to speak out against the library’s proposed tax increase at the start of the meeting. More than 20 people attended the meeting. The decision means the library will wait until after the voters decide on the tax increase to proceed with construction of the South Branch, said JC Morgan, library director, after the meeting. Morgan said he and the board’s attorney have been researching placing the is-

the 1980s and early 1990s, Jolly said. Jolly said he wonders now how a blade of grass was maintained at A.J. Jolly because it was used so much. Annual rounds of golf played in the 1980s were between 45,000 and 47,000, he said. “At 6 o’clock in the morning these guys were standing here waiting to get lined up,” Jolly said. “And at dark if it was 7:30 p.m. or 8 p.m., thinking they could squeeze it in, they were still going.” Now the annual rounds played on the course is about 28,000, he said. One of the top priorities of the new nonprofit group Friends of A.J. Jolly Park is to examine ways to improve the county’s golf course including ways to break even or make a profit again. The county spent $155,000 to support the golf course in the 2012 budget year that ended June 30, said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine. “A.J. Jolly Golf Course is a beautiful asset that contributes to the quality of life in Campbell County,” said Campbell County Judge-executive Steve Pendery. “Visionary leaders some 50 years ago recognized the opportunity to develop the golf course and preserve a key area of open space, and we are privileged to continue that legacy.” The managers of the course have done a wonderful job maintaining and improving the facility to serve the needs and interests of citizens, Pendery said. “We encourage everyone with an interest to visit and enjoy one of the best golfing experiences in the region,” he said.

ALEXANDRIA — The county-run golf course at A.J. Jolly Park teed off its 50th year of operation this summer. The idea for the park and golf course came from the Campbell County Fiscal Court led by Judge-executive Andrew J. Jolly Jr., in the 1950s. The park opened June 28, 1962, as Campbell County Public Park and in 1976 was renamed A.J. Jolly Park. Larry Siebler of Cold Spring has been playing at A.J. Jolly sine it opened. The course is affordable, and the scenery with the lake and water is unbeatable, Siebler said. “I just love to play golf, and I love the golf course,” Siebler said. Neil Florence, 69, of Verona, said he plays at A.J. Jolly with a group of friends about once a month. “This is one of the nicest courses around,” Florence said. “It’s just absolutely gorgeous. The greens are always nice, and it’s always mowed well.” Florence said he lived in Fort Thomas for 30 years, and only recently moved to Boone County. A.J. Jolly is where he learned to play golf, he said. Roger Walker of Fort Thomas, said he started playing at A.J. Jolly the first or second year it opened, and he keeps coming back. “I like it because they’ve got these lakes,” Walker said. Opened as nine-hole course in 1962, A.J. Jolly was expanded to 18-holes in 1963. It is a par 71 course. People usually notice how large trees are part of the course, and the views of the lake from multiple holes on the course and the club, said Terry Jolly, course golf pro. Jolly is a cousin of the course’s namesake. “Like people say it’s probably the most scenic setting for a clubhouse or golf course in the area,” Jolly said. To celebrate the course’s 50 years of operation the course had a special on Wednesdays in May to play a round at 1962 greens fees that will be repeated in August, he said. An anniversary invitational tournament with 30 groups, comprised of about 120 players, for longtime supporters of the course is planned for Wednesday, July 25, he said. Teams of four will be drawn from supporting organizations that have had tournaments on the course for years, including Holly Hill Children’s Services, and teams from longtime leagues playing at A.J. Jolly were invited, Jolly said. A.J. Jolly was the only public course in the county until River Hills Golf Course in California opened in 1970, he said. The only other course in the county at the time of A.J. Jolly’s opening was the private Highland Country Club in Fort Thomas, Jolly said. In 1978, River Hills closed, and A.J. Jolly was again the only public course open until Hickory Sticks opened on the site of the former River Hills in 1988, he said. Flagg Springs Golf Course opened in California in 1997. A.J. Jolly was really the only public course open during golf’s “heyday” in

Church commits 12,500 hours of service By Justin B. Duke

FLORENCE — If you see a group of people in red Tshirts, there’s a good chance they’re there to help. The shirts are part of 7 Hills Church’s Heart the City movement where they’ve pledged 12,500 service hours over two weeks. “We have really been trying to focus on community outreach,” said Eric Wagner, pastor of outreach and missions. While service is a regular part of the church, they wanted to make a really big push for the Heart the City campaign, Wagner said.

“It’s just an extension of who we are,” he said. To figure out what kind of projects to do, the church began contacting nonprofits around Northern Kentucky and asking what kind of needs they had. “We know that money is tight right now,” Wagner said. This has led to groups from the church painting, plumbing, landscaping and all other kinds of jobs. “It just depends what their needs are,” Wagner said. The campaign kicked off July 17 when teams from the church helped with 28 different projects across the area including making and serving 5,000 sandwiches at the Henry Hosea House in Newport. By July 28, the church will have completed 115 service projects, Wagner said. “We’re really just trying to share the love of Christ,” he said. In order to pull off as many projects as the

Screen printers open for business business venture. Judi Gerding, president of The Point/Arc of Northern Kentucky, said that since the organization is only 18 percent government funded, the new business helps. From shirts to cup holders, The Point Logo and Design can screen print and embroider messages or logos on a number of materials. “We went up to (a trade) show in Indianapolis and I wanted to look at the bling,” Harper said, holding a sheet of rhinestones. “That’s the thing now.” Another thing the company does is provide jobs.

COVINGTON — If it’s hot inside the building at 620 Scott Blvd. in Covington, it’s not just because there’s no air conditioning. It’s because the employees at The Point Logo and Design are working hard. A venture by The Point/ Arc of Northern Kentucky, the screen printing business opened this spring. The Point/Arc of Northern Kentucky serves area residents who are developmentally disabled. Brian Harper, of Covington, along with John Foppe of Alexandria, have known each other for years through the Special Olympics. They decided to ask The Point/Arc of Northern Kentucky to join in on this

from The Point/Arc of Northern Kentucky. “It’s making the Tshirts,” Shepperd said of his job. “(I like) to unload them from the dryer. Then we sort them and fold them into sizes.” Lloyd was employed at another one of The Point/ Arc of Northern Kentucky’s ventures, a laundry facility in Dayton. “Judi approached me,” he said. “She said ‘Would you like to do something different?’ And I said ‘I’ll try.’” The facility also employs two Edgewood teens. Josh Kissel, who graduated from Covington Catholic this year, de-

signed the website. He said his graphic design teacher contacted him about the opportunity. Christian Greenwell, who will be a senior at Covington Catholic, is following in Josh’s footsteps. “Just being able to work with Randy and Kevin,” he said. “It’s a really good experience.”

The Point Logo and Design opened this spring in Covington. It employs several who receive services from The Point/Arc of Northern Kentucky and two Covington Catholic students.

Tent revival organizer totes cross By Chris Mayhew

SILVER GROVE — Theresa Lucas can sometimes be spotted rolling a sixfoot-tall cross up and down U.S. 27, Ky. 8 or in local parades, and now she’s organizing a monthly tent revival near Silver Grove. Lucas is the worship leader of King Davids Garden of Blessings based on property near her home off Ky. 8 near Silver Grove. The Christian congregation does not have a build-

ing, but has a regular schedule of tent revivals, she said. Lucas is hosting the tent revivals on her property at the end of the gravel drive off 4906 Mary Ingles Hwy. (Ky. 8) once a month through November 2013. She started the 18 months of Saturday evening tent revivals in June. The next tent revival is scheduled at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11. Revivals (except for inclement weather) will be on a Saturday at 6:30 p.m. (typically on the second Saturday of

the month). Each revival will have a theme, Lucas said. The July theme was “One Nation Under God,” she said. All of the revivals will end by 8:30 p.m., and they are ecumenical and open to anyone, Lucas said. “At the end of the revival there is always an altar call to people,” she said. People can “be saved” or renew their baptism and begin a commitment to a new life centered around Christ. Lucas said people who

Student achieves in spite of Dyslexia By Chris Mayhew

MELBOURNE — St. Philip School seventh-grader Carly Kramer won’t let her dyslexia be a roadblock to learning. Kramer was one of five winners of $1,000 scholarships from the International Dyslexia Association. The scholarship can be used for private tutoring or school tuition. “She’s determined to succeed,” said Jennifer Twehues, a teacher of fifth and sixth grades at St. Philip. “She participates in class projects and group projects. She learns what works bet for her and she often gets 100 percent on her tests. She does very well in school.” Twehues said she wrote a three-page nomination letter for Kramer to win the scholarship because she is impressed. Kramer also participates in service learning volunteer projects in her spare time, Twehues said. “She has severe dyslexia,” she said. “When she’s in class, yeah I

can tell she struggles with it, but she keeps up in class, she’s a hard worker, and she’s an example to the other kids.” Kramer doesn’t let the dyslexia take over her life at all, Twehues said. “I once asked her if she feels different and she said ‘I am yes, but in a good way,’” Twehues said. Kramer, 12, who was diagnosed with dyslexia in fourth grade, said she has enjoyed the tutoring because it has helped her so much. Kramer said her favorite subjects in school are science and social studies and she doesn’t feel any different than any of her classmates. Nobody has ever treated her differently, she said. Misconceptions about dyslexia abound including ones about confusing numbers and how smart they are, said Peggy Kramer, Carly’s mother. Dyslexia is inherited, she said. “People with dyslexia are not stupid,” Peggy said. “They sometimes have a higher IQ.” They just learn differently,

Twehues wrote a letter nominating Kramer for a $1,000 scholarship she won through the International Dyslexia Association. THANKS TO PEGGY KRAMER she said. With the help of St. Philip, Carly has made huge leaps and bounds since she was diagnosed,

Peggy said. Carly’s third and fourth grade teacher went to a seminar on dyslexia with her in mind, and on the

advice of the teacher she was diagnosed, Peggy said. The family always knew she had problems reading despite constant practice, she said. It took only a few months of tutoring before Carly’s grades improved noticeably, Peggy said. A private tutor has been coming to St. Philip two days every week including the summer to use the Susan Barton method, she said. “Now she’s a solid B student and doesn’t struggle and sit at the dining room table doing homework for three hours and crying,” Peggy said. In the fifth grade, Carly was also awarded the Commonwealth Award by Twehues for her hard work in the classroom, she said. People with dyslexia learn to deal with it, Peggy said. There are accommodations Carly is legally entitled to including the ability to take verbal rather than written tests. “She doesn’t use them, and has just worked out a way to learn as any other student does,” Peggy said.


The library at Johnson Elementary School is currently undergoing a major renovation. AMANDA JOERING ALLEY/COMMUNITY RECORDER

Updates under way at Johnson’s library By Amanda Joering Alley

FORT THOMAS — Students at Johnson Elementary School will notice a big difference in the school’s library when they return to school this fall. Shortly after the start of summer break, work began to completely renovate the library, part of the original 1922 Johnson Elementary School building. “This is a major renovation for our school,” said Principal Jon Stratton. “We’ve taken everything out, down to the original hard wood floors.” The project, which District Facilities Manager Jerry Wissman said will cost about $75,000, includes removing some walls to open the area up, replacing windows, getting new shelving and furniture, installing new carpet, and doing drywall and plaster work. As far as he knows, Wissman said this is the biggest renovation done to this part of the building. Stratton said the project will

give the library more space, allowing staff to divide it into more usable areas for group projects, a computer area and more for the school’s approximately 400 students. “With the space we had and the way things were laid out before, there wasn’t much usable areas for students,” Stratton said. The renovation will also make the library more inviting, Stratton said, which he hopes will further foster literacy and a love of reading in Johnson students. The addition of new shades on the library’s windows will allow for more projector screen use and use of the Smart Board that the school is supposed to get for the library next year, Stratton said. Stratton said most of the work is expected to be complete in the next few weeks, with the furniture arriving right before school starts in August. The hope is that the next area of the school to be renovated and updated will be the cafeteria, Stratton said.

Men’s amateur golf champs decided

By James Weber

The Northern Kentucky Men’s Amateur golf championships took place July 16-19 at Kenton County Golf Course. Two former Kenton County club champions took the top two spots, as Scott Scudder won his first Amateur title, and Tim Murphy took second place. Murphy is a six-time club champion at Kenton County. Scudder, not to be confused with the former Cincinnati Reds pitcher, shot a 3-under par 141 to win by one stroke over Murphy. Northern Kentucky University golfer Zach Wright and threetime Amateur titlist Lance Lucas of Boone County tied for third with a 144. The top four finishers received trophies. The title was determined on the final day with eight finalists playing 36 holes of medal play. A consolation flight of eight golfers played one round, with Brook Reeves winning with a 73. Both

Murphy shot the best round of the week by any player, a 69, in the first round of the finals. He led Wright by one shot and three other players by two. Scudder was three shots better than any of the finalists in the final round, firing a 70 to come from behind. Carter Hibbard, a 2012 Boone County High School graduate, was fifth in the finals with146. Eric Fuldner, a Campbell County graduate and two-time defending champion, was sixth, tying with Chris Cronenweth of Florence. Lane Weaver of Pendleton County was eighth.

Trap competitors shoot for the stars By James Weber

ALEXANDRIA — Trap shooting requires near perfection to win, but instead of feeling pressure, local students feel nothing but fun when they’re competing. Northern Kentucky’s scholastic trap shooting “Top Guns” team has had another strong summer as they competed in statewide tournaments. In trap shooting, a circular clay target, or “bird,” is thrown out in front of the shooter from random directions at about 42 miles per hour. Students have to shoot with it a 12-gauge or 20gauge shotgun from 16 yards away. The team’s best shooter this year, 2012 Campbell County High School graduate Quentin Penrod, hit 195 out of 200 targets at the Kentucky state shoot July 7-8. He led the Northern Kentucky five-

man varsity team to the state title and finished second individually in the singles competition. In the singles, he lost in the sixth round of a 25-target “shootoff” after he and his competitor tied through five straight rounds. Penrod made 148 of 150 in the shootoff, totaling just seven misses in 350 tries for the competition. “In the first round, all I had to do was shoot the 25th bird but I choked and missed it,” Penrod said. “I then ran117 straight but he ran 125 straight.” Despite the tough loss, Penrod wouldn’t change the experience for anything. “It’s a mental game,” Penrod said. “In the shootout, I was flipping out and I couldn’t breathe. My legs were shaking. But I stood my ground and did all right. I represented Northern Kentucky really well.” The team, which has competi-

Three county teams crusade for Knothole titles By James Weber

Three Campbell County teams were still alive in the Knothole baseball city championships as of July 23. Three District 22 teams were in the tourney July 21-28 at the Crosley Field complex in Blue Ash, Ohio. The champions in all six Division 2 classes were set for Saturday morning, July 28, in the double-elimination tournament. District 22 is northern Campbell County, including Bellevue,

Newport and Fort Thomas. All three local teams were in the winner's bracket heading into play Tuesday, July 24. If they won that night, they will be in the finals on Saturday. A loss puts them in the loser's bracket Thursday, July 26, with a chance to advance to Saturday's final. The local teams are the NKY Rays in Class B-Junior, the Crusaders in C-Junior and Highland Spring/Barrington in Class D. The Rays are coached by Greg Combs and Highland Spring by Scott Gabbard.

Top Guns Senior/Varsity Team won first place. They are, from left, Tyler Schnitzler of Campbell County, Alec Wolfert of Holy Cross, Taylor Bisig of Cooper High School, Steve Flinchum of Campbell County and Quentin Penrod of Campbell County. THANKS TO AMBER HAMILTON tors from all over Northern Kentucky, practices at the Bob White sporting club in Alexandria. Dennis Menning, the director and head coach, said the teens have extensive safety training before competing with the guns. He accompanied several teams to the Kentucky state meet as well as the Ohio state shoot, although they could only win “nonresident” titles at the Ohio meet.

The Sub-Junior team finished first in Kentucky with Tanner Hamilton finishing first in his age group individually. Hamilton, an incoming eighth-grader at Campbell County Middle School, also won the handicap division in which the targets were two yards further away. “I was so excited. It was awesome,” Hamilton said. “Two years ago I won third place in Kentucky

state and in Ohio state shoot we won first place.” Hamilton, who has had 99 hits out of 100 before and is still searching for the elusive perfect 100, enjoys the mental training. “It takes a lot of dedication and focus and keeping your composure when you miss a bird,” he said. “You tell yourself you’ll hit See TRAP, Page A9

BROWN SIGNS WITH MOUNT ST. JOSEPH Bishop Brossart High School receiver Spencer Brown, son of Steve and Sharon Brown, signed to play with the College of Mount St. Joseph. While playing for the Mustangs, he set two school records for offense with the most TD receptions in a career and most TD receptions in a game. He was named Skilled Player of the Year, Offensive Player of the Year, Tri-State Internet Sports Radio Offensive All-Star Team, NKAC All-Star Team and NKFCA All-Star Team. PROVIDED

the next one. You just have to remember the fundamentals of shooting and get your rhythm going.” Like others on the team, Hamilton was introduced to the sport by a friend and became hooked. “The first time I shot I broke five out of 25, but we figured out the gun didn’t fit me,” he said. “Then I started shooting more and got 20s and 21s. Then I got the gun I have now and now I get 95 (out of 100) regularly.” Penrod plans to com-

pete with the club for two more years and help the younger kids. “I couldn’t do it without Dennis Menning,” Penrod said. “He taught me everything I know. We’ve had our ups and downs, but in the end, he’s like a dad to me.” The team will shoot in the national tourney in Illinois July 20-21. Many of the trap-shooters haven’t played other sports in school. “I just love everything about it,” Hamilton said. “You have the sense of accomplishment when you win something. You feel like you’ve done something. You have people supporting you and they want you to do good.”

Recorder newspaper keeps you connected

A few weeks ago we announced the first price increase for your Community Recorder newspaper in 11 years. I’d like to take a moment to make sure you know about this change when your carrier comes knocking to collect later this month. For our papers delivered by junior carriers, your carrier will stop by for a voluntary subscription payment of $3.50. Our carriers will receive a portion of this increase, and we hope you’ll continue to show you enjoy reading your Community Recorder by paying your carrier. Our junior carrier program is a great source of pride for the 26 Community Press & Recorder newspapers. We have families who have

passed the tradition of delivering our papers from one generation to the next. In fact, our Circulation Department’s manNancy Daly ager, Sharon COMMUNITY Schachleiter, RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST herself comes from a family that has had four generations delivering the Community Press & Recorder. We’re always looking for new carriers, and it’s a great way for your kids to learn money management and responsibility. At our booth at the city of Independence’s Fourth of July celebration, several parents and

youngsters asked if routes were available. Indeed they are, are I’m sure Sharon and her staff would love to hear from those interested in becoming carriers at 859-781-4421. A few of our papers in Northern Kentucky are delivered by motor route drivers rather than junior carriers. If your paper is delivered this way, an envelope requesting payment will come inside your paper once every three months. We hope you’ll show your support by making your voluntary subscription payment. Each Thursday, we deliver papers containing local stories, news from around your neighborhood about schools and community events and shopping information from local merchants. Our classified section

has great buys on cars and homes or garage sales in your neighborhood. When the tornado struck the Piner area earlier this year, our staffers – several of whom live nearby the affected community – were on the scene within an hour. Long after other media moved on to other stories, we’ve continued to report on the continuing impact of the March storms, as well as the efforts of local people who are making a difference rebuilding their neighborhoods. Our reporters take pride in bringing you the news that affects you most, whether it’s a new principal for your child’s school, a change in how trash is picked up or a new business down the street. We also enjoy letting you

know about upcoming festivals in Northern Kentucky, and taking photos of you and your neighbors getting together at community celebrations. There’s no better way to stay connected to our community than your Community Recorder newspaper. If you have questions about our coverage, please send me an email at or call 859-578-1059. If you have questions about your Community Recorder subscriptions, please contact Circulation Customer Service at 859-781-4421. Thank you for allowing us to be part of your neighborhood.

Gateway expands Which ‘poor people’ have Medicaid already? education In the wake of the recent Supreme Court decision upholding much of the Affordable Care law, states have many factors to weigh. Importantly, SCOTUS affirmed the right of states to opt out of the expansion in Medicaid coverage envisioned under Affordable Care, without penalty. Some state and national leaders have been heard to say that the poor are “already covered under Medicaid.” Currently, nearly 15 percent of Kentuckians lack health insurance, including approximately 290,000 lowincome adults who are currently uninsured and would be eligible for the Medicaid expansion. It may surprise many to know that about 8 out of 10 uninsured Kentuckians are working adults. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, Kentucky could benefit the most, compared to other states, as a result of the Medicaid expansion –with about 57 percent of our uninsured adults newly eligible for coverage. While many believe that Medicaid provides coverage for all low-income individuals, Medicaid coverage is actually quite complex, with significant state-to-state variation. In Kentucky: » Working parents are eligible for Medicaid only if they earn 62 percent or less of the federal poverty level – less than $8,926 per year for a family of two » Jobless parents are eligible if their total income is 36 percent or less of the federal poverty level – less than

$5,144 per year for a family of two » Pregnant women are eligible for Medicaid if their inSusan Zepeda come is up to 185 percent COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST of federal COLUMNIST poverty (about $20,665) but lose this eligibility – dropping to the lower income limits above – after the child is born » Legal immigrants, child or adult, in the U.S. for less than five years, are not eligible for Medicaid coverage. (Undocumented immigrants are not eligible for Medicaid coverage regardless of how long they’ve been in the U.S.) In short, not all Kentuckians living in poverty are covered by Medicaid. If Kentucky does not take the option of expanding Medicaid, many individuals and families living in low-income and poor households will be left without health insurance access. The new law also creates health insurance exchanges, and places limits on out-ofpocket expenses on health insurance depending on income level. While these subsidies will allow many lowincome parents and individuals to purchase health insurance, they appear only to be available for families above the federal poverty level. And other pieces of the law were developed with the assumption that all states would expand Medicaid coverage. Because of this assumption, cuts to other federal health

funding are built into the continuing roll out of the Affordable Care law: For example, nationally Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) funding has provided an average of 95 percent of uncompensated care costs for stateowned hospitals; 69 percent of uncompensated care for local public hospitals; and 38 percent of uncompensated care for private hospitals. The law will reduce DSH funding by $14 billion over 10 years (starting in 2014). This funding decrease to key providers was supposed to be offset by the increase in Medicaid coverage, as the number of uninsured individuals seen at hospitals would drop significantly under the Medicaid expansion. If Kentucky opts out of the Medicaid expansion, however, state, local and private hospitals could be faced with sharp increases in uncompensated care (care provided but not paid). The coming months will present opportunities for our state leaders to look at the sometimes difficult health realities of our commonwealth and make decisions that will best serve the health of all Kentuckians. To quote the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan, “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts.” Susan G. Zepeda is president/CEO of Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky, a nonprofit, non-partisan philanthropic organization that invests in communities and informs health policy through research, education and grant making.

St. Peter and Paul students friends since birth By Amanda Joering Alley

For St. Peter and Paul incoming second-graders Mary Holtz and Sadie Geiman, saying they’ve been best friends forever isn’t an exaggeration. Mary, who lives in California, and Sadie, who lives in Grants Lick, have been inseparable for as long as they can remember. “We’ve pretty much been best friends since we were born,” said Sadie, whose mother used to

babysit Mary when they were toddlers. Since those early years, the two girls have done pretty much everything together, from playing soccer and cheerleading to taking dance at the Alexandria Dance Academy. In their free time, Mary said they like to spend the night at each other’s houses and play in Mary’s playhouse and play on the Wii. “One time we went to Chuck E. Cheese’s for Sadies’ birthday and

we had a lot of fun playing games and having our picture taken,” Mary said. The girls also share the same interests, from laughing and telling jokes to listening to music. They both agreed that one of their favorite songs is “California Girls” by Katy Perry and, like many girls their age, they love Justin Bieber. While they love spending time together, the girls admitted they do occasionally get in an argument.

comes, and think they’ll stay best friends forever. “I mean, we’ve been best friends since we were babies, so I don’t think we’ll stop,” Sadie said.

Jr. Renaissance Camp held for fifth summer By Amanda Joering Alley

The Fort Thomas Military and Community Museum will soon have a new display thanks to the work of several local students. For the fifth year, several history-minded middle and high school students have come together to participate in Fort Thomas’s Jr. Renaissance Camp. Throughout the years, the annual summer camp has covered Fort Thomas history including everything from architecture in the city and the tree trail in Tower Park to the old military homes on Alexander Circle and the Pearl Bryan murder mystery. This year, the group of 10 students concentrated their research on the Fort, an old military base that was active from the last 1800s to the mid-1900s. “This year we wanted to focus on the Fort and how different it is today,” said Debbie Buckley, the city’s renaissance manager. “We wanted to do something that would allow the public to realize that this used to an active Fort and be able to walk around and recognize what it used to be like.” Eileen Bunch, an eighth-grader who attended the camp for the first time this year, said the group used aerial photos, blueprints and old maps to create a flat model of what the Fort was like at the turn of the century. Using color-coded stickers, the student mapped out where significant buildings and homes were, and in some cases, still stand today, and also took pictures of old Fort buildings that are still standing to add to the display, Bunch said. Bunch, who attended the camp because she has always been interested in the history of the Fort,

said she learned a lot working on the project. “It’s really been interested and I’ve learned so much,” Bunch said. “Now I can tell my family and friends about it and teach more people about the history of our city.” Sam Shelton, an eighth-grader who has attended the camp all five years, said it’s exciting to be able to make displays like the model for the museum. “To be able to make this and show people what the Fort was

like back then is great,” Shelton said. “It’s preserving an important part of our history.” Along with working on the display, campers spent time at the old Altamont Hotel site near Tower Park. The Altamont Hotel, which also served as a military hospital, was torn down years ago, leaving pieces of its history all around. When on a hike in the area during the camp years ago, students found some of the pieces, which lead them to research what they

had found and create a display all about the Altamont in the museum, Shelton said. During this year’s camp, the students went back to the site to find more artifacts and worked to divide the display into two sections, with one focusing on its hotel years and the other focusing on the years it served as a military hospital. Bunch said working on the Altamont display was really interested for her. “It’s cool to be able to go out

there and find this stuff,” Bunch said. “It’s kind of like a puzzle to try to figure out what each thing is.” Buckley said during the next week of two-week camp, the campers will be building a model of the Fort Thomas Military Hospital, which was located near where the museum sits today. The model will be on display next to the flat model of the Fort that the students created.

BUSINESS & PROFESSIONAL Rita calls these “just one more” stuffed mushrooms, made from a old catering recipe.

Preheat oven to 400. Prick crust and pre-bake 10 minutes. Dust bottom with flour. Mix cheese, salt and pepper and mayonnaise. Spread thin layer over crust. Lay tomato slices on top. Spread rest of cheese mixture over tomatoes. Sprinkle with green onions and basil. Smooth top, pushing onions and basil into cheese mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake about 20 minutes or until puffed and golden. Serves 6.

For John, who said his basil and oregano are flowering. “I want to dry it and I’m not sure how to do it,” he said. To dry herbs, strip an inch or so from the bottom of the stem and hang upside down in a large paper bag. Or strip all the leaves from the stem and place in single layers in a basket, on a cloth or screen. The key here is to dry them in a dry place away from light. You’ll know the herbs are dry enough when a few leaves crinkle between your fingers. This could take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, depending upon the moisture in the herb. Don’t crush leaves: After the herbs are dry, I leave the leaves whole, and put them in bottles or tin containers. The volatile oils stay intact until I crush them between my palms for cooking. Store herbs away from heat and light which reduces their flavors.

Crunchy overnight cinnamon streusel cake This can be made right away, also. If refrigerated overnight, allow extra baking time. Filling:

I Rita just wish Heikenfeld his personRITA’S KITCHEN ality matched his looks. Herman is nosy to the point of obsession. He likes to position himself on the fence so that he’s high enough up to see any and all activity on our old country road. Just so you know, Herman is a rooster, and no one knows his origins. He just showed up one day, running through everyone’s yards, finally taking up residence at the Collins’ home. Mike keeps telling me Herman should be with our little flock. I told him our rooster, Yardboy, is territorial and I’m sure he’d chase Herman back down the road.

Giant lawn wasp kills cicadas

Question: I have noticed a giant black and yellow wasp of some kind going in and out of a hole in the ground in my lawn. Are these wasps dangerous? How do you kill them? Answer: The large wasp you describe is called a cicada killer. The cicada killer wasps attract attention due to their large size, the burrows they dig in home lawns and their buzzing flights over the lawn. These insects prefer to dig their burrows in sandy, bare, well-drained soil exposed to full sunlight. The adult wasps feed on flower nectar while the immature or larval stage feeds primarily upon cicadas that are brought to the burrow by the adult. In spite of their large size, the wasps usually ignore people, but they can give a painful sting if bothered, or if they get up inside your pants leg when you are mowing. Mating males are aggressive and more easily disturbed. A mound of fine soil surrounds the burrow of each cicada killer. Since colonies of burrows are

common, infested lawns usually contain several mounds that can smother the grass. HowMike ever, they Klahr prefer to HORTICULTURE nest in CONCERNS areas of sparse vegetation, and rarely infest thick, vigorous turf. Cicada killers overwinter as larvae in the soil. Pupation occurs in the spring and the adult emerges in mid-June to early July. Emergence continues throughout the summer. Females feed, mate, and dig burrows for several weeks before preying on cicadas. Excess soil thrown out of the burrow forms a regular, U-shaped mound at the entrance. The females search tree trunks and lower limbs for cicadas. The wasp stings its prey, turns the victim on its back, straddles it, and drags it or glides with it to the burrow. Each cell is furnished

with at least one cicada (sometimes two or three) and a single egg is laid inside the cicada body. Two

to three days after the cell is sealed off, the egg hatches. Depending on the number of cicadas in its cell, the larva feeds for four to 10 days until only the cicada’s outer shell remains. During the fall, the larva spins a silken case, shrinks, and prepares to overwinter. Only one generation occurs each year. Cultural practices can prevent or eliminate the establishment of cicada killer colonies. Proper lawn fertilization in the fall, based on soil test results, accompanied by frequent watering will promote a thick growth of turf and can usually eliminate a cicada killer infestation in one or two seasons. In case of severe infestation, chemical control may be necessary to prevent danger from stinging wasps. Carbaryl (Sevin) applied to burrowed areas according to label directions for turf pests can reduce infestations. Mike Klahr is the Boone County extension agent for horticulture.

EMR education comes to Northern Community Recorder Northern Kentucky University is introducing electronic medical record (EMRs) software into its health informatics and nursing curricula. Northern has successfully implemented ClinNext, a fully certified hospital information system and EMR through a joint educational partnership between Grupo Hima San Pablo, Southern Strategic Assets and Resources, ClinNext and Northern. The Northern colleges of informatics and health professions have devel-

oped and are offering hands-on EMR exercises and experience to their students on ClinNext. The goal is to provide students with a basic EMR skill set in the context of their informatics and nursing education that will prepare the student for today’s health care careers, on a system that is operating in a fully functioning health care environment. Students will take on every role inside a health organization and learn hands-on what the EMR software can do. They will log-on to the software as physicians, nurses, front

desk staff and other medical personnel to understand the responsibilities, challenges and importance of each particular role in a medical office. Students will be able to use the software in the role of administrator to see how to best configure the software for the real world. Finally, students will be able to access practice data and work to develop healthcare analytics such as dashboards and scorecards with the software. Students will learn how to use the software as a tool to improve the management and delivery of

health care and will also be instrumental in shaping the strategic plan of the software development into the future. The partnership goes further than a simple software installation. The introduction of the ClinNext EMR is a fundamental learning environment for students looking to work in the health care industry. The understanding of the work processes and information flows for health care are essential to working effectively in this area.

Women need to plan for retirement Retirement planning is important for all individuals; however, it is especially important for women. At some point during their lives, 80 to 90 percent of women will be solely responsible for their own finances. One of the first things to consider as you begin thinking about retirement is where you will get your money. Think of retirement savings plan as a three-legged stool, with each of the legs being one source of retirement income. The first leg is Social Security. Social Security eligibility is based on your lifetime earnings record and your age. This requires you to meet work requirements yourself or be married to someone for at least 10 years who meets the work requirements. Employed women who are married, widowed or divorced after at least 10 years of marriage are said to be dually entitled and can collect the higher amount between their own Social Security benefits or their spousal amount. Full retirement age varies by the year you were born. For example, full retirement age for people born before 1937 is 65. For those born between the years 1943 and 1954, full retirement age increases to 66. To determine your retirement age, visit the Social Security Administration’s website retirechart.htm. It is best to discuss your situation with a Social Security professional well before you plan to retire. The second leg is employed-sponsored plans. These plans include defined benefit plans, which guarantee a specific monthly amount, and defined contribution

plans, which grow tax-deferred but do not guarantee specific retirement benefits. Most Diane employers Mason today are EXTENSION offering NOTES defined contribution plans. Unfortunately, the first two legs of the stool typically do not provide enough money to meet the needs of individuals during their retirement years. Most need the third leg which includes personal savings and investments. To find out how much additional income you’ll need, contact your local Social Security office and ask for a Request for Earnings and Benefit Estimate Statement. If you have an employer-sponsored retirement plan, contact your human resource or benefits office to get a pension estimate. With this information, you can get a ballpark estimate of how much your retirement savings is estimated to be when you retire and how much additional income you’ll need to comfortably retire. To get a more accurate estimate of how much money you’ll need to retire, take into account the rate of inflation. The average annual rate of inflation from 1914 to 2010 has been 3.38 percent. Planning well in advance of your retirement can give you time to save enough money. If you wait until you’re about to retire, it may be too late to put more money aside.

Dry periods may cause foundation cracks We are in a very dry and hot summer. The dry weather causes some foundations to begin to settle. Foundation, exterior wall cracks and interior cracks start to become evident. Houses supported on expansive clay soils are likely to settle differentially. Not every neighborhood has this type of soil. Large trees will extract large amounts of moisture from the soil, accentuating the problem. Settlement cracks develop because different portions of the foundation settle at different rates. Some of the older homes have underground plumbing and downspout

piping that has a limited life. The older piping may collapse, crack or Michael have tree Montgomery COMMUNITY PRESS root intruGUEST COLUMNIST sion. If these pipes begin to leak along the foundation, seasonal foundation may be more likely due to excess water content in the soil, which weakens the soil.

Foundation movement can be caused by several causes. Cracks are not always due to differential settlement. If a home is experiencing foundation movement, we suggest contacting a structural engineer for an evaluation.
