Energy efficiencies targeted at schools By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

Energy savings and conservation education is the focus of a new federal stimulus-funded position serving six school districts in Campbell County and one district in Pendleton County. The Campbell County Schools District is serving as the lead district and has hired Becki Lanter as the district energy manager. Lanter has bachelor’s degrees in both mechanical engineering from the University of Kentucky and applied physics from the University of the Cumberlands. Her first day on the job was July 6. Lanter will serve not only Campbell County Schools, but also the districts of Bellevue, Dayton, Fort Thomas, Silver Grove, Southgate and Pendleton County Schools. The Newport Independent School District already has an energy savings program. The goal is for the position to pay for itself and more in cost savings, said Kerry Hill, director of pupil personnel and operations for Campbell County Schools. Already, Lantry has been provided with the utility bills for all the districts and is reviewing them to see if there are any ways to find efficiencies that will bring about a savings, Hill said. “Budgets are tight and we want to be as responsible as we can with taxpayers money,” he said.

Police to get drug disposal boxes By Paul McKibben pmckibben@nky.com

The Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force is planning to install boxes at Northern Kentucky law enforcement agencies where residents can dispose of their prescription drugs. The boxes will be at the Boone County Sheriff, Florence Police and Campbell County Police departments. A fourth box will be placed at Highland Heights’ new city building which is under construction. Bill Mark, the drug strike

force’s director, said studies have shown the key to preventing drug abuse by adults is to encourage safe practices when it comes to dealing with drugs when a person is younger. “And if we can keep prescription drugs out of the hands of teenagers and young adults, they’re less likely to abuse drugs when they’re older,” he said. “And ... especially for a teenager, the most likely place for them to get prescription drugs that they’ll abuse is in the family’s medicine cabinet.” Mark said the boxes are similar in dimension to the blue mailboxes used by the U.S. Postal Service. He said the strike force will continue to place the boxes as funding becomes available.

The Boone, Florence, Campbell and Highland Heights boxes have been obtained through a partnership with the Household Hazardous Waste Action Coalition, according to Mark. He said that’s a partnership between Sanitation District 1 and the solid waste management divisions of the Boone, Kenton and Campbell county fiscal courts. The coalition provided the boxes. Two boxes are already in place in Kenton County. The Kenton County Alliance to Prevent Substance Abuse provided a box at the Erlanger City Building and the Kenton County Police Department in Independence. Mark said the alliance is in the process of obtaining more and those

will be in the Park Hills, Edgewood, Villa Hills and Fort Wright city buildings. Since March, almost 4 1/2 pounds of prescription drugs were removed from the box at the Kenton County Police Department. The Office of National Drug Control Policy said prescription drug abuse is the nation’s fastest growing drug problem. Mark said prescription drug trafficking comprises a signification portion of the investigations the strike force conducts. Mark said the boxes are secure. He said drug strike force empties the boxes monthly and the contents are destroyed through incineration. The Erlanger Police empties its own box. The drug strike force empties the one at Kenton County Police Department. The drug strike force will empty the boxes at Florence Police, Boone County Sheriff, Campbell County Police and the Highland Heights City Building. The federal government also has guidelines on how to properly dispose of prescrip-

Those include: • Follow the drug’s label and patient information for disposal • Do not flush drugs in the toilet unless the information says it’s allowed • If there are no instructions, throw drugs out in the household trash but first take it out of its original container and mix it with undesirable substances such as used cat litter or coffee grounds. • Put the medication in a

sealed bag, empty can or other container that will prevent it from being leaked out of a trash bag. Jamie Holtzapfel, a SD1 spokeswoman, said researchers are still trying to determine what the direct effect is on fish, wildlife, waterways and drinking water. The water is able to be treated, however, there are just extra steps that citizens can take to make treating water more efficient, she said.

State funds used to widen bridge By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

Campbell County has been approved to receive $81,100 in state funding to replace a narrow and aging creek bridge on Visalia Road. Visalia Road is between Pleasant Ridge Road and Pond Creek Road in a southwestern portion of the county near the Licking River south of Alexandria. “It’s a small bridge, and it’s a replacement project,” said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine. The county will receive the funds through the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s Rural Secondary and Municipal Aid Project Agreement and will have to match the state funding

Other bridge work

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is in the process of replacing a bridge on Flagg Springs Road in the southern end of Campbell County. People have noticed the bridge is deteriorated, and it’s a statemaintained bridge and not county-maintained bridge, said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine. with an additional $20,000. “We have a lot of small bridges, these are under 20 feet in length,” Horine said. The bridges are on a routine inspection program about every five years, he said. “This particular bridge came up as the number one priority to replace when funds were available,” Horine said. “We want to keep the roads safe, and due to deterioration it needs replacing,” he said. The estimated cost of

replacing the bridge is about $100,000, and no timetable of when the construction project will be bid out to contractors was immediately available. The design work still needs to be complete, Horine said. The bridge is currently about 15 feet and the plans are to widen it to about 18 feet, said Commissioner Ken Recthin. “One could argue that’s an almost single-lane bridge, and that will be a vast improvement on that bridge,” Rechtin said.

Work continues to complete a new bridge for U.S. 27 over a creek at Grant’s Lick as part of the $26.5 million project to widen a 2.4-mile section of the highway to four lanes from Race Track Road near A.J. Jolly Park and Nagel Road north of the Pendleton County line.

With a bridge almost complete and a new roadbed that’s almost ready for concrete to be poured, the widening of a 2.4-mile stretch of U.S. 27 around Grant’s Lick is in full gear. In the summer heat, drivers on the old section of U.S. 27 drive parallel to the new section being constructed where massive four-wheeled grading machines rumble along a level plane carved out of tree-covered Campbell County hillsides. The $26.5 million federal stimulus-funded road project was started in September 2009 and is slated for completion in November of 2012. The biggest change drivers in the area will notice is that a newly constructed portion of Siry Road is open. The old intersection of U.S. 27 has been closed-off as a through-road and is open only for local traffic, said Nancy Wood, spokesperson for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s District Six Department of Highways. Wood said the U.S. 27 work is progressing, with about $8.4 million already spent on the project.

“I don’t think they’d be ahead of time,” Wood said. “I know they’re close to finishing up the bridge in Grant’s Lick. The next thing is they’ll grade all that out so they can start pouring concrete.” Wood said there’s still a lot of excavating to do, and paving of the new section will start before the end of the year, depending on factors including the weather. Before the entire new section is complete there will be some areas where traffic is switched to the new pavement this year, she said. “There will be some run arounds, around a culvert at Ky. 159, and possibly at the bridge at Grant’s Lick,” Wood said. The U.S. 27 widening is between Race Track Road near A.J. Jolly Park and Nagel Road north of the Pendleton County border. “Everything is moving right along on it,” Wood said.

Join NCC alumni for ‘A Knight to Remember’ By Amanda Joering Alley ajoering@nky.com

Some of the best performers to grace the stage at Newport Central Catholic in the past 50 years are coming together to give the community “A Knight to Remember.” The HillToppers, a newly formed alumni theater group at the school, are presenting the show as their first major production at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 11 through Saturday, Aug. 14 in the school’s black box theater. “There was a lot of alumni that wanted to continue with theater and stay involved with the school,” said Director Kevan Brown. “This is a way for them to stay active in the school in a way they enjoy.” From recent graduates to graduates from the class of 1960, the cast and crew is made up entirely of alumni. The show, written by Brown, features many performers who were the leads in musicals when they were in school. For 2006 graduate Dustin Baird, who plays the knight Marcus in the show, the alumni group has given him a chance to see his drama friends from high school.

Baird. Will Brannon, a 2009 graduate who plays the knight Dominic, said he has enjoyed the chance to work with people who were at NCC before him. “It’s really great for us all to be on stage together,” Brannon said. “I definitely think this is going to be a good show.” For 2008 graduate Bridget Quitter, the group has given her the chance to keep doing what she loves. “It seems like everyone is so busy during the school year between classes, jobs and their school’s theater program, but in the summer we all have a lot more time and this gives us a chance to come together and have fun,” Quitter said. For 2006 graduate Mary Kate Collopy, it’s great to see so much talent from so many different times at the school all come together. “There is just so much talent in the show,” Collopy said. “This is a great way to come together and to

Middle-schoolers act in summer theater By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

Taylor McGrath of Alexandria and Sydney Stamm of Cold Spring have spent their summer being “All Shook Up” and refining their theatrical skills. At age 12 and preparing to enter seventh grade at Campbell County Middle School in the fall, both of the girls are already becoming on-stage veterans. They’ve spent the summer as ensemble background dancers and singers at the Anderson Center Theater for the Elvis Presley inspired musical “All Shook Up.” McGrath and Stamm met each other in 2009 when they both performed as orphans in Campbell County High School’s production of “Annie.” Ever since they have been eagerly seeking out new roles, and sharing a friendship based in their mutual interest in acting. “They both do sports, but they

both really have a passion for theater,” said Suzanne McGrath, Taylor’s mother. Suzanne said the two girls are the youngest members of the “All Shook Up” cast, and spent several weeks in some “intense” rehearsals before the musical opened for a July 19-24 run. Stamm said she has been in church plays in addition to “Annie” and “All Shook Up” and looks forward to every opportunity to learn more about acting with the challenges that come with different types of roles. “Being on stage, it’s kind of like you’re on the spotlight, you get nervous and you’re under pressure but at the same time you can have fun with it,” Stamm said. She said the song “Burning Love” is her favorite from “All Shook Up.” “Just because it’s upbeat, and we run out into the audience and dance, I thought that was pretty

fun,” Stamm said. Taylor McGrath said she liked performing in “All Shook Up” because it’s a play where she really didn’t know anyone else and had the chance to receive feedback and learn from others in the cast about their different experiences. Taylor said her favorite part about “All Shook Up” was helping sing in the ensemble for the song “Can’t Help Falling In Love.” “All our voices have different pitches and harmonies and it sounds very good,” she said of the song. Taylor said she is planning on being in more plays and becoming more involved in singing and acting because she enjoys it. It might even be something she’ll do the rest of her life, she said. “Before I was ever in acting and on stage I was always kind of shy, and now I feel like I’m up on stage and I can dance and have fun and everything,” Taylor said.

Miller to play for NKU

Northern Kentucky University women’s basketball head coach Nancy Winstel recently added Shanece Miller, a transfer from Southeast Missouri State University, to the roster for the upcoming season. Miller, a 6-foot-1 post player, is a 2009 graduate of Anderson High School. As a senior at Anderson, Miller averaged 11.9 points and 8.4 rebounds per game. She earned All-Fort Ancient Valley Conference and All-City honors for the Redskins. Miller finished with 1,481 career points at Anderson, and grabbed 970 rebounds during her prep career. “I’ve known Shanece for many years because she has been attending our camps since she was a little girl,” Winstel said, noting Miller’s mother is former NKU basketball player Rita Eggleston. “Her mom played at NKU, and Shanece knows me and what our program is about. “She has very good offensive skills, and I think she is going to help us right away. Growing up she played a lot of guard, so she has really good ball skills. She is a backto-the-basket player, and Shanece is really good in the paint.” Miller appeared in 18 games for Southeast Missouri State last season and scored a total of 14 points. She averaged 5.4 minutes per game for the Redhawks. NKU posted a 20-10 record and advanced to the NCAA Division II Tournament last season. NKU has earned five consecutive berths in the NCAA Division II Tournament and won national championships in both 2000 and 2008.

Two Campbell teams alive in Knothole

By James Weber jweber@nky.com

Sid Bravard is hoping for another close shave this year. Bravard, the head coach of the American Legion Knothole youth baseball team, lost his hair after his team won the Division 2 Greater Cincinnati city title in 2009. The group is in contention for a repeat crown, as the 11 and under team from Newport and Bellevue is in the final four in Class C-Senior. The Legion and Mark’s Garage Dragons from Fort Thomas both won openinground games July 24 in Blue Ash, Ohio. Both Campbell County teams were set to play a semifinal Tuesday, July 27 in the double-elimination tournament. The championships will be decided Saturday, July 31, at Blue Ash. Bravard’s team was 28-2

NKU coach honored

Northern Kentucky University men’s basketball player Dustin Maguire has been named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches Honors Court for his work in the classroom. Maguire, a junior guard from Edwardsville, Ill., earned the recognition for his academic performance during the 2009-10 season. In order to be named to the NABC Honors Court, a player must be a junior or senior and own at least a 3.2 cumulative grade point average. Maguire also averaged 9.9 points per game for the Norse in an injury-shortened 200910 campaign. The previous season, he averaged 15.0 ppg and led the nation in free-throw percentage at .936.

Last year’s championship ritual will return if the repeat happens. “They get to shave all the coaches’ heads,” Bravard said. “I’ve never been bald before. It took four months (last year) to grow it all back. They get the same incentive this year.” Bravard said defense has been the strength of the team. He said the key game in the regional tourney was the winner’s bracket victory over Webber Farms, who led 5-2 in the fifth inning. For the American Legion, Andrew Scott, the 10th batter in the lineup, hit a tworun double and 11th batter Tommy Spicer then tied the game with a hit. The Legion eventually won in extra innings. “We’re excited,” Bravard said. “It was our goal from the beginning of the season,

to make it back. We told them we’re the city champions until we lose. I don’t know how many teams have (repeated), but that was our motivation for the year.” Players are Tommy Smith, Noah Billings, Brett Clark, Michael Chaffin, Jalen McDaniel, Braden Posey, Drew Bravard, Tommy Spicer, Alex Runion, John Thomas, and Andrew Scott. Coaches are Bravard and assistants John McDaniel, Wayne Posey, and Mark McCulley. The Mark’s Garage Dragons won Class B-Senior. They were one of just two regional champions out of the six classes to come out of the loser’s bracket. The Dragons upended the Rockets from Boone County twice after losing to them earlier in the tournament. The second game didn’t end until July 21 because of rain

delays. “They knew they could beat that team,” head coach Tom Turnbull said. “We had lost to them in the tournament by one run and gave them all their runs in the first inning. We didn’t give up. They wanted it.” The Dragons are 12-13 year olds, all from Fort Thomas, and have a 26-5 record. Players are Jeff Orne, Jeff Lynne, Zak Turnbull, Johnny Schultz, Matt Gall, Alex Veneman, Jeremy Jones, Aaron Simpson, Elijah Miller-Cox, Cashel Coughlan, James Hinkel, Bailey Schell, Reilly O’Hara and Eric Rixson. It is their first time this far in the tourney. “They’re finally gelling,” Turnbull said. “I’ve had a core group of kids for five years and we finally have the missing pieces. I’ve pulled some of these kids from teams that finished

Girls swim their way to Ireland Three swimmers from Northern Kentucky recently traveled from the bluegrass state to the rolling green hills of Dublin, Ireland. Based on their performance at the NCSA Junior Nationals back in March, Northern Kentucky Clipper Swim Team members, Caitlyn Forman of California, Ky., Ellen Williamson of Fort Wright and Krissie Brandenburg of Erlanger qualified to swim with Team USA at the 2010 Irish National Championships. “This trip was such an educational experience for these kids. Being in Ireland for 11 days, surrounded by a different culture, taught them life lessons that they will never forget,” said Coach Jason Roberts of the Northern Kentucky Clippers who was honored to be selected as one of the AllStar Team coaches. With flight bumps and delays on the way over and volcanic ash grounding flights outs, the trip alone was quite an adventure. However, the experience to swim with the best in the world far out weighs the bumps along the way. At one point, Ellen Williamson was competing along side England’s 200 individual medley champion. The opportunity to interact with the young age group swimmers was priceless.

“We were like superstars from America to these kids. They wanted to trade swim caps with us because they had our names on them with the American flag,” said Krissie Brandenburg. Caitlyn Forman, who celebrated her 16th birthday while in Dublin, put forth a very impressive performance in the 100 back with a second-place finish overall. Her best time overall was a 1:02.8 and places her 27th in the world as of the March 3 report. Handling a very tough load, she had to swim the finals of the 50 back, 200 back and the 400 medley relay. All of these events taking place in about 20 minutes. Handling a load like this is very tough but she did a great job finishing 5th in the 50 back, 6th in the 200 back and led off the winning 400 medley relay. Krissie Brandenburg helped USA finish off a

1,2,3 sweep in the 400 free relay as a member of the “B” team Ellen Williamson joined Caitlyn in the finals leading off the “C” relay for Team USA. All three girls climbed onto the podium for the USA at the Irish Nationals by day two. Ellen Williamson and Krissie Brandenburg earned spots on relays that have placed them on the podium. Krissie made it as a member of the 400 free relay and Ellen Williamson as a member in the 800 free relay. Ellen Williamson followed suit by finishing top 8 in the 100 fly. For the first meet of the season, the girls swam a remarkable meet being ahead of where they were this time last year with their times. This trip has built a strong desire and eagerness to compete at this summer’s Junior Nationals in Irvine, Calif., in August.

Madden Fund to benefit students

By Amanda Joering Alley ajoering@nky.com

A fundraiser event at Ben Flora gymnasium raised more than $1,300 to kick off the Russell Madden Fund to benefit students at Bellevue High School. The event, held Saturday, July 31, served as both a fundraiser and as a way to honor Madden, a Bellevue graduate who died in combat in July. “I’ve always been involved in the community and the school, so I really just wanted to do what I could to help support this fund,” said event organizer Jeanetta Steely, an employee at the Bellevue Kroger. Steely said the Madden family approved of the event to raise money for the fund, which is going to be used for scholarships and to help sports programs at the school. “The Bellevue Kroger, other local businesses and some com-

munity members have really been very generous when it comes to donating to this event,” Steely said. The food and drinks were donated by the Bellevue Kroger and the tents and inflatables were donated by Justin Williams, owner of Advantage Tent and Party Rental. Williams said Madden used to work for him and their wives are friends, so he wanted to do what he could to help. Councilman Steve Brun, who is running for mayor, donated him time and talent as the DJ for the event. “When I was told about this event and asked to help, there was no question,” Brun said. “This is a great way to help the school and honor a fallen soldier.” Along with the food and games, the event also included a tribute to Madden. For information about donating to the Russell Madden Fund, contact the high school at 261-2980.

Goettafest celebrates 10th year of goetta goodness By Amanda Joering Alley ajoering@nky.com

What went from a one day event with 5,000 visitors 10 years ago is now a three-day festival bringing in more than 100,000 people to Newport’s riverfront to celebrate one thing: Goetta. Fans of the pork, beef and oats mixture have made it clear that goetta is not just food, it’s a tradition. Mark Balasa, marketing director for Covington-based Glier’s Goetta, said since German immigrants brought goetta to the United State in the 1880s, it has been a staple in many local families. “Goetta has a lot of history and a whole lot of followers,” Balasa said. “We started Goettafest as a way to unite all these people.” While it started as a breakfast food, Balasa said the festival has helped expand goetta’s reach to lunch, dinner and, starting this year, dessert. At this year’s festival Graeter’s

Glier’s Goettafest is Aug. 6-8 at Newport on the Levee in Newport. Ice Cream is introducing a goetta topping for their gourmet ice cream. “We’re not talking about crumbled goetta on top of ice cream,”

Balasa said. “Graeter’s has created a special mixture that they put goetta in.” Along with the ice cream topping, goetta-lovers will have more

than 30 other goetta dishes to choose from at the festival, including favorites like the goetta rueben and goetta balls. “Only Goettafest can get away with stuff like this,” Balasa said. For those who are a bit on the competitive side, the festival will feature the first-ever goetta coney eating contest at 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 6 and Saturday, Aug. 7; and 6 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 8. Also new this year, along with the main music stage, which will feature bands throughout the weekend, a new Goetta Unplugged stage will feature local musicians. “Goettafest is all about local, it’s a local company, a local product, and this is another way we can support local people,” Balasa said. For more information about Goettafest, which runs 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday, noon to 11 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 9 p.m. on Sunday, visit www. goettafest.com.

Wuchner said she was inspired when she saw a dragon boat team from Louisville with a handicapped paddler in the boat who was carried into the boat by others. Dragon boat racing is the fastest-growing, nonmotorized water sports in this area, she said. It’s similar to the annual Relay for Life events, but some people can’t run, and part of the message of fighting cancer is maintaining an active lifestyle, Wuchner

The owners of the Newport Pavilion shopping center are in the unique position of appealing for a value higher

than what was assessed, said Dan Braun, the PVA. The Pavilion, home to a new Kroger Marketplace opened in December 2009, and to a Target that’s under construction, is tax exempt, Braun said. But the valuation does impact the bond rating, he said. The owners of Newport Pavilion unsuccessfully pled their case with the local

appeals board for a valuation higher than the $28 million estimation. There are multiple plots of property involved, and the value being sought for all the parcels ranges from $30 million to as much as $39 million, Braun said. The local board of appeals ruling has not yet to be appealed to the Kentucky Board of Tax Appeals.

Northern Kentucky smoke ban’s future hazy By Paul McKibben and Regan Coomer pmckibben@nky.com and rcoomer@nky.com

Northern Kentucky’s proposed smoking ban was dealt a serious setback last week when Boone County said it would no longer participate in talks due to lack of support. The Boone County Fiscal Court announced July 30 it was withdrawing from talks with Kenton and Campbell counties about the issue. “In the process of working on draft ordinances, it is clear there is no support among members of the Fiscal Court to consider this issue in Boone County no matter how it reads,” Judge-executive Gary Moore said in a statement. “At this time, Boone County is removing itself from the process of a regional smoke-free ordinance.” Moore said at a Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce breakfast July 13 that Boone County didn’t have the votes to pass an ordinance. But Kenton County Judge-executive Ralph Drees and Campbell County Judgeexecutive Steve Pendery indicated they each had three of four votes to approve it. An effort to pass a regional smoking ban failed two years ago. Drees could not be reached for

Potter speaks during the Boone County Businessmen’s Association’s smoking forum July 29 at a Holiday Inn in Florence. comment, but has said it is possible that if Boone isn’t willing to move forward, Kenton and Campbell could pass a ban together. Kenton County Commissioner Kris Knochelmann doesn’t think Boone’s decision “changes the direction we’re going to be going.” “Ideally, the three counties would be best, however, it’s a public matter and we have an obligation to make a decision on it,” he said. Knochelmann, who hopes to put the issue to rest in the next few months, said he was “confident” that there is support for the ban with the Campbell County Fiscal Court. He said the business base of Boone County is different than that of Kenton and Campbell,

so if those two counties pass a ban, it shouldn’t give Boone an unfair business advantage. “We are similar enough that it’s not going to be a big issue if Boone County isn’t part of it,” he said. Pendery said he’s been on vacation and declined to comment at this time. American Lung Association representative Betsy Janes, on behalf of pro-smoking ban group Northern Kentucky ACTION, said Boone’s decision doesn’t “mean a whole lot.” “The counties were taking an all-for-one approach and Boone was holding them up. This frees them up to do what they need to do,” she said. “If Kenton and

Campbell are going to move ahead, that’s great news for us.” Boone County also released statements from county commissioners Cathy Flaig, Charlie Kenner and Terri Moore who explained their opposition. Flaig called it “a propertyrights issue.” Kenner, a dentist, said smoking bans have not “been properly enforced in other parts of Kentucky and I don’t see a need for it in Boone County” because of the number of smoke-free restaurants. Commissioner Moore said “because businesses are going smoke-free voluntarily, I will not support a smoking ban.” Anti-smoking ban group Northern Kentucky Choice welcomed Boone’s decision. “Consumers have asked for smoke-free venues by voting with their feet and the businesses have reacted accordingly. No law is required and the interaction of our market system will continue to work,” said Ken Moellman, a group spokesman. “The Boone County Fiscal Court recognized this. Hopefully, the fiscal courts of Kenton and Campbell counties will see this as well.”

Heated forum

Boone’s announcement followed an emotionally charged forum July 29 at a Holiday Inn in

Florence hosted by the Boone County Businessmen’s Association. A nine-member panel included health advocates, business people, an attorney and a representative of Northern Kentucky Choice. Michelle Eversole, senior health educator with the Northern Kentucky Independent District Health Department, said based on data from other communities, the department would expect to see a 15 percent reduction in heart attacks within the first year of implementing the law and a 36 percent reduction during three years. She said emergency room visits for asthma would decrease by about 300 per year. “So we would also expect to see about a 32 percent decline in smoking which would be a big cost savings and something our community really needs,” she said. Rick Potter, executive chef/owner of Stringtown Bar & Grill in Florence, said Eversole was making estimates that he finds unrealistic. “But I think it should be the right of the person going into your property from a restaurant’s point of view,” he said earlier in the event.

Campbell school board approves a trainer contract By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

Campbell County School District’s Board of Education has approved by a 3-1 vote to keep its current athletic trainer service. Negotiations on the incentive-laden contracts offered by NovaCare Rehabilitation and St. Elizabeth Healthcare executives on behalf of the hospital-affiliated Commonwealth Orthopaedic Centers

continued through the middle of a special July 26 board meeting. In the end, the board chose NovaCare, but only after St. Elizabeth declined to negotiate anymore midmeeting, and a recess where board members Janis Winbigler and Gary Combs met privately to discuss the issue. Winbigler said before going into the recess that football players were start-

ing practices and the board could no longer delay approving an athletic trainer contract. The July 26 vote to approve NovaCare’s contract proposal came after months of negotiations and two prior board meetings that resulted in a vote deadlock on which company to pick. The board initially received competing contracts for the July 12 board meeting from both companies. Since then, NovaCare upped its offer to match anything St. Elizabeth would do. Board chairman Gary Combs said at the July 26 meeting that St. Elizabeth hadn’t had a chance yet to see NovaCare’s revised offer or to make a new offer and asked St. Elizabeth representatives at the meeting if they wanted to respond. Tom Saalfeld, senior vice president and CEO of St. Elizabeth Fort Thomas, said the hospital is dedicated to providing whatever assistance it can for the schools as part of being a strong community hospital. But it was time to draw a line and St. Elizabeth wouldn’t offer another new proposal, Saalfeld said. “I’m reluctant to go back and try say ‘do we throw some more money into it?’ And then NovaCare goes back to their foundation or

grant,” Saalfeld said. Saalfeld declined to offer any further revised proposals. “I don’t think it’s fair to keep going back and forth here,” said Saalfeld to the board. Associate Superintendent Shelli Wilson, filling in for Superintendent Anthony Strong, said there was a recommendation from the superintendent to accept the contracts as submitted at the July 12 meeting. The recommendation from the superintendent was to approve St. Elizabeth’s contract at the July 26 meeting, Wilson said. Board member Mike Combs’ made a motion to approve St. Elizabeth’s contract and the superintendents’ recommendation died for lack of another supporter. Combs said he has been on the board long enough to remember when NovaCare was challenging a different athletic trainer service for the school’s business. The arguments were the same then that everyone was familiar with the previous provider, HealthSouth Northern Kentucky Rehabilitation Hospital, and comfortable with the existing athletic trainer, Combs said. At the time, the district was paying for an athletic trainer, and now because of instituting a competitive bidding process, companies want to pay the school

about $10,000, Combs said. “The fact is, Commonwealth has driven market responses, this is now a swing in my mind of $18,000 from what it was five-six years ago,” he said. Combs said he challenged the board if it was willing to negotiate from the table on a smaller money savings, then why not just do that on construction bids for school buildings in the future. Continuing to negotiate the contracts amounted to polluting the board’s formal bid processes, he said. “I understand, and I appreciate things in the 11th hour, but I’m telling you all as a board you are on a slippery slope, you are on a credibility cusp if you start accepting proposals and contracts and offers and add-ons after the fact,” he said. Board member Rich Mason asked the board’s attorney Garry Edmondson if there was any problem with accepting NovaCare’s newly submitted contract. “There’s nothing inappropriate about negotiating a professional services contract in this fashion, you don’t even have to bid it,” Edmondson said. Mason said while he admitted the bid process wasn’t necessarily smooth, for him the idea of switching comes down to the quality of service being provid-

The July 26 vote to approve NovaCare’s contract proposal came after months of negotiations and two prior board meetings that resulted in a vote deadlock on which company to pick. ed. NovaCare’s service has been excellent, he said. “I don’t think anyone has questioned that,” Mason said. “If I’m wrong and board members have some knowledge of it not being excellent I wish they’d speak up.” Mason said he saw no reason to change because the district is receiving good service from NovaCare and the board is getting the same deal from both companies now. Dr. Nick Gates, an orthopaedic surgeon with St. Elizabeth, said at the meeting that the hospital was invited by the board to submit a proposal for the athletic trainer contract. Several years ago the school district was paying annually for an athletic trainer instead of now receiving a financial incentive of about $10,000, Gates said. “Who is saving you this $18,000?,” he said. “It’s St. Elizabeth Hospital.”

BRIEFLY Website for change

Proponents of a ballot measure to change Campbell County’s form of government have established a website to advocate for their cause: www.ccjop.com. They’re pushing for a change from the commissioner form of government to the magistrate, or justice of the peace, form. Instead of three commissioners representing three districts but elected countywide, they want eight magistrates representing eight districts and elected by district. They have submitted a petition to Fiscal Court to put the measure on the November ballot. County officials are now vetting the signatures; 1,200 registered voters are required.

Campbell summer camp is about Spanish By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

Summer typically translates into no school, but for eight advanced Spanish students spending a July week in the classroom was their idea of cool. Students in the voluntary summer camp at Campbell County High School practiced skills like speaking ranging from using proper speech pronunciations to smashing each other with water balloons while shouting commands like “tirar” meaning “to throw,” agarrar meaning “catch” and “pegar” meaning “to hit.” It’s the first year for a Spanish camp at the school, said Spanish teacher Toni Schneller. The purpose of the camp is to recall and refresh what was learned previously, Schneller said. Playing off the soccer’s 2010 World Cup, which was won by Spain, the theme of the camp was about “goals” ranging from using the two personal pronouns “ser” and “estar” for describing “yourself” to learning about how to talk about time on a day-to-day basis as in what time an event is going to be,

The camp has a wide range of activities that focus students on learning in an interactive and more kinetic way, Schneller said. Of the eight students in the camp, seven will be in Spanish III in the fall and one will be in Advanced Placement Spanish IV, she said. The camp is more handson than a traditional class during the school term, said Bethany Bay, 16, of Alexandria, who is starting her third year of Spanish classes. There have been activi-

ties including writing captions on a computer in Spanish for a cartoon strip and making a video of themselves speaking the language, Bay said. “It’s more fun than doing book work,” she said. Bay said she has a personal interest in learning Spanish because a greatgrandmother had a Spanish ancestry. Bay said she spent three weeks in Mexico with her brother this year traveling across that country to learn more about the language she wants to become fluent in.

She plans to become a pediatric physical therapist and figures Spanish fluency will be important. “If kids come in and they’re speaking Spanish you have to be able to speak with them and understand them,” Bay said. Bill Anderson, 17, of California, entering his third year in Spanish, said he wanted to come to the camp to brush up because it’s his goal to become fluent. Anderson said he’s been on mission trips to several Spanish speaking countries and he wants to know the language to make future trips easier. It might also come in handy for his chosen career of criminal justice, he said.

Highlands band marching to a new beat By Amanda Joering Alley ajoering@nky.com For weeks the marching band at Highlands High School has been preparing for a new season that includes a new original show. The band, which includes 47 high school and middle school students, has

lands home games, also includes a lot of props that will fill the whole football field, Hopkins said. Senior Christian Mock said even though the band hasn’t done a show like “Cityscape” before, he has high hopes for the season. “It’s going really well so far and even though we have a lot of new people

Back in school already? No it’s camp By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

Grant’s Lick Elementary School invited all of students entering fourth grade to come back to school during the summer for a summer camp primer to prepare for the coming year. About a quarter of the school’s new fourth-grade students showed up, a total of 10 students, said Mariann Smith, the fourth-grade teacher who ran the camp. Smith said the camp was about having fun. The children made paintings, practiced multiplication and learning about geometric line segments. They also created “writer’s notebooks” to take home, had the chance to play outside, and helped water a garden by the front sign where they discovered it was a home for many lizards, Smith said.

“I got to know these guys better and they got to know me better,” she said. Students entering fourth grade at Grant’s Lick move to a different building in the school’s complex where they get to switch between a few teachers instead of being with one teacher all day. The students don’t get their own lockers yet, but they do get their own private bin that’s not locked for supplies storage. All fourth-grade students will learn math and writing from Smith, and will switch classrooms to learn science and social studies from Aaron Himebaugh, the other fourth grade teacher. Both teachers, along with other staff will work with the fourth grade students in reading groups, she said. It’s a little bit like middle school, Smith said.

Travis Weaver, 9, of Grant’s Lick said he normally likes school and liked learning how to paint better and some multiplication facts during the camp. Weaver said his favorite part about the camp was finding out who is in his specific classroom. “The number one thing I like was figuring out that all my friends are in my class,” he said. Principal Amy Razor said the school has a different type of summer camp each year. Last year’s camp focused on all grades K-3 where 12 students who potentially needed a boost were specifically invited. It was decided to have a fourthgrade camp this summer because there is a slight transition from third grade, Razor said. “You’re a lot more independent as a learner,” she said.

NKY Wildcats claim top knothole prize

By James Weber jweber@nky.com

Casey Jones is going out on top as a knothole baseball head coach after six very successful years with the NKY Wildcats. Jones led the NKY Wildcats to the city championship in Division 1 earlier this month in Mason, Ohio. Division 1 is essentially “select” level knothole, with all of Greater Cincinnati combined in one class. The team went 31-1 this year. They were comprised of two players from Bellevue and 10 from Highlands Middle School. Many of them played freshman or junior varsity at their high schools this spring, with Dylan Huff starting varsity for Bellevue. “I had a great group of kids, coaches and parents. It was a perfect storm,” Jones said. “You list all the great teams that knothole has

ever had, you’ve got to include this group.” The Wildcats qualified for the city tournament final four all six years they were together, starting with Division 2, Class D in 2005. They won the city championship for the first time in 2008, winning Class C. They finished with a flourish in Division 1, outscoring their four tourney opponents 27-2. “We don’t keep stats, we don’t believe in that,” Jones said. “Our MVP trophies come in the form of team trophies. We did not promote the individual; we promoted the team. Highlands and Bellevue will benefit very much from this group.” Players are Andrew Abner, John Abner, Brian Dill, Grayson Heck, Luke Hennigan, Dylan Huff, Mitchell Jones, Joseph Martin, Brady Murray, Jacob Noe, Patrick Schoepf and Jake Whitford.

BRIEFLY Equine center unveiled

The Campbell Lodge Boys’ Home, a year-round residential facility dedicated to providing therapeutic guidance to pre-adolescent and adolescent boys, unveiled its new Equine Center to the public July 29 at 5161 Skyline Drive, Cold Spring. The Campbell Lodge Boys’ Home is the only children’s home in Northern Kentucky offering equine-assisted counseling to all residents. Research has shown that this type of counseling can reach adolescents in a way that traditional therapy cannot. The staff, boys and horses will be on hand doing demonstrations, including grooming, riding and equine therapy. For more information about the Campbell Lodge Boys’ Home and its new Equine Center, visit, www.clbh.org. Campbell Lodge Boys’ Home is a year-round residential facility for at-risk preadolescent and adolescent boys ages 10 to 18.

New group president

Denny Egan is the new president of Northern Kentucky University’s Norse Athletics Club, which is the booster group that supports NKU’s sports programs. Egan, who is the owner of Corporate Award Consultants in Florence, Ky., played on the first basketball team at thenNorthern Kentucky State College in 1971. He also was a member of the first baseball team at Northern during the 1971-72 season. Egan played three years of basketball for Northern and finished with 373 career points. He also averaged 6.2 rebounds per game during his three-year career. In Northern’s first-ever game on Nov. 12, 1971, Egan grabbed 21 rebounds and scored 16 points as the Norsemen rolled to a 109-65 victory against Calvary College. Egan earned a degree in business from Northern in 1974. He is married to Carla (nee Hardebeck) and their son, Rob, is a current student at NKU. The primary purpose of the Norse Athletics Club is to cultivate financial support and interest in NKU athletics. The NAC strives to continue the growing tradition on the NKU campus by assisting student-athletes in achieving academic and athletic success. Additional revenue is needed to help support the athletic budget in areas of recruitment, scholarships and facilities.

adds new assistant coach

Northern Kentucky University men’s basketball head coach Dave Bezold has added former Norse standout Kevin Schappell to his staff for the upcoming season. Schappell, a four-year letterwinner for NKU from 2003-07, spent the past three years as an assistant coach at West Virginia University. The former Loveland High School standout also received his master’s degree from West Virginia. Schappell was a member of last season’s West Virginia coaching staff and helped the Mountaineers advance to the NCAA Division I Final Four. West Virginia earned berths in the NCAA Tournament each of Schappell’s three seasons as an assistant to head coach Bob Huggins. “Kevin knows our program about as well as any-

one, and he is a great addition to our coaching staff,” Bezold said. “He’s been at one of the elite basketball programs in Division I the past three years, so he’s also going to bring that experience here to NKU and give us a different perspective on many things.” While a player at NKU, Schappell scored 868 career points. He was named honorable mention All-Great Lakes Valley Conference during the 2005-06 season. As a senior in 2006-07, Schappell played a key role during NKU’s run to the NCAA Division II Great Lakes Region championship game. The Norse knocked off top-seeded Findlay in the regional semifinals of that tournament, ending the nation’s longest home winning streak at 59 consecutive games.

Even though there was much interest and several offers from other colleges, he believed Spalding was the best fit. He cited strong academics, successful coach, approachable and friendly staff, small school advantages just blocks away from University of Louisville, only being 1 1/2 hours from home and a private dorm room to be some of his considerations.

Area teams headline Soccerama jweber@nky.com

Ryle High School will be the host of 2010 girls’ soccer Soccerama exhibition series. Eleven matches will be played from Thursday, Aug. 12, through Saturday, Aug. 14 at Clifford Borland, Sr. Stadium. The matches will feature 22 Northern Kentucky teams. At press time, there was a potential of adding another game with two additional teams. “We hope to have a very enjoyable tournament where all the teams have great weather and great sportsmanship,” Ryle girls’ head coach Edmundo Echeverria said. “I think it will be a great season this year. My goal is to get the teams everything they need.” Ryle hosted the boys’ Soccerama last year. John Horton, former Covington Catholic head coach and current Ryle teacher, organized that and gave a lot of help to the Raiders’ girls’ staff for this year’s event. Besides the soccer, Ryle is working to provide concessions, kids’ play areas, vendors and area businesses, and other community events. The marquee match looks to be on the first night, when two-time state champion Highlands meets recent upstart St. Henry, who lost to Notre Dame in the state round-of-16. Notre Dame, last year’s state runner-up, will play another local improving program in Campbell County. Campbell County and

Speers Court Apts. One Bedroom Apartments for Senior Citizens.

Bishop Brossart will play back-to-back to end the event Aug. 14. Newport Central Catholic will also play that day. The matches are a key prelude to the regular season, which begins Monday, Aug. 16. “We’re excited for the beginning of the season,” said Echeverria. “Once the season starts, we’re all over the place and this is the one event where we’re all together.” Tickets are $5 per session and $10 for all three. The schedule:

Thursday, Aug. 12: 4:30 p.m., Beechwood vs. Walton-Verona; 6 p.m., Villa Madonna vs. Cooper; 7:30 p.m., Highlands vs. St. Henry; 9 p.m., Conner vs. Dixie Heights.

What was your best summer job? Your worst? Why?’ “Worst - Putting in hay or cutting and housing tobacco. Hot, dirty and wasp nests were always present. Favorite - Retirement! I think the why is obvious.” G.G.

“My favorite summer job was at a little man-made lake with a sand beach called ‘Tara Beach.’ I worked the concession stand. It was my first job (16 years old) and paid less than minimum wage. I worked six days a week – long days with very short breaks in a hot little building making burgers, grilled cheese, popcorn and sticky cotton candy. And I wouldn’t trade it for anything! I learned a sense of pride for working hard and earning my own money and saved almost all of my two summer’s worth of earnings to pay my first year’s college tuition.” J.K.T. “My best summer job was at a camp called Camp Nuhop. It was a camp for children with disabilities. It was located by Mohican State Park. I learned all kinds of skills pertaining to group control and positive discipline. “I went on to a career as a special educator going on 32 years now. The camp is still operating and I refer many students there.” K.S. “My best summer job was when I was between my junior and senior years in high school. I worked, along with my nephew, at the Easterly Sewage Plant in Cleveland, spreading gravel. It was also my worst summer job, since it’s the only summer job I ever held.” Bill B. “For the summer between high school graduation and college I landed a job as a temporary postal carrier. Besides it being a decent paying job, I got to be outdoors and meet lots of people all over Greater Cincinnati. It was also a transition for me since, for the first time in my life, adults treated me as an adult.” R.V. “My best summer job was the summer I was 16. A family I babysat for had a little boy who was 2. About 2 weeks before summer break his mom gave birth to twin girls. My summer job was going to their house Monday–Friday during the day to help with the kids. “Some days I was there with Michele and the kids, some days I would have one kid, two kids, or all 3 kids. I learned how to determine who was crying, why they were crying, and could tend to all three at the same time if need be. “This remained my summer job for the next couple of summers. I loved the job and those kids. It was so rewarding. And 16 years when my husband and I had twin boys I could not thank them enough for all great experience to hit the ground running.” T.S. “Worst summer job was working at Mr. Gatti’s Pizza on Beechmont (about 25 years ago). I worked mostly until closing, and after work I would drive to Dunkin’ Donuts and get two donuts for my ride home. “What I didn’t gain in work experience, I gained in weight!” L.D.B.

Send your answer to “mshaw@nky.com” with Chatroom in the subject line. “My best summer job was working the tennis courts for the Cincinnati Recreation Commission at Withrow High School in the days when they had clay courts. It was hard work, but I met a lot of nice people, including a co-worker that I still keep in touch with today. I kept the courts in shape, daily treating them and restriping them to await the barrage of players that would come out even in the 90-plus degree heat. “My worst summer job would have to be when I was in high school and it was my job to pass out coupons for free RC and DietRite cola after the riots of 1968. It was hot, sticky work walking door to door making blind calls. Obviously people were skeptical, but gladly accepted free pop. If only life’s problems could be solved so ‘easily’ with free soft drinks.” R.L.H. “My favorite was working in a small grocery store in a little country town. It was enjoyable because I knew most of the customers and there were always interesting conversations about family, friends, etc.” B.N.

Now that the Fourth of July has come and gone, are you living out your Independence? In health and wellness that is. So many of us treat a healthy lifestyle as a restrictive, controlling battle or virtual prison that threatens to rip away at our independence to “eat what I want, when I want!” Diets are too restrictive, you say. I don’t want to give up certain foods or eating out, you say. Here’s a newsflash: The healthy lifestyle isn’t the battle or “prison” we deem it to be. The prison is the high blood pressure, high cholesterol, 34 pills we take every day, regular doctor appointments to monitor all our health issues, anxiety and stress we chalk up to a busy lifestyle, not to mention the weight problem that prohibits us from going outside (or getting on the floor for that matter) and playing with our kids, grandkids, going to an amusement park or taking walks. It’s time to once again to reclaim our independence and freedom to live and enjoy a healthy lifestyle. • Did you know that losing just 10 percent of your weight drastically reduces your risks for certain diseases including some cancers and will most likely lower your blood pressure and cholesterol significantly? • Did you know that anxiety and stress are often lowered as well when a person loses weight? Why? Too often, theses issues are exacerbated by obesity: embarrassment about weight, frustra-

tions regarding clothes and energy levels all work to increase stress and anxiety can be alleviated significantly when a person loses as Julie House little as 10 Community pounds. • Did you Recorder know that the guest summer season columnist is the best (not worst) time to start living healthier? Why? It’s when the best of the best fruits and vegetables are in season and available at your local farmers market. With two farmers markets right here in Kenton County every week and several others in neighboring counties, its possible to visit a farmers market every day of the week and find the freshest, most colorful and incredibly healthy treats for your body. Bonus: We’re giving back to the local economy and saving the environment as well (produce doesn’t travel very far to get to the farmers market, so we’re reducing harm to the ozone, emissions). You get the point. Health and wellness is a freedom and independence we need to reclaim for ourselves and future generations. In the words of Earl Pitts (am I really old enough to remember him?) “Wake up America!” Farmers Market times: • Erlanger Baptist Church, Commonwealth Road, Tuesday

“My one and only summer job was working at Kings Island its first and second season! Oh what fun. I enjoyed meeting all the guests that came to the park, plus other teen employees from different areas of Cincinnati – Anderson Township, Indian Hill, Wyoming, etc. Oh my gosh, not to mention that we got free admission to the park when we weren’t working.” C.A.S.

“My favorite summer job was working for the Cheviot Public Works Department in the early 1970s. Back then, I think it was called the Cheviot Maintenance Department. “My first summer I worked at the old Cheviot incinerator on South Road (pre EPA days). The garbage trucks would pull in, and I’d help rake the garbage into the incinerator. “I couldn’t believe some of the useable items people threw away. Now, they’d probaby go to a charity. Several items made it to my dorm room. “The second summer I drove around in a small dump truck picking up yard waste, old water heaters, etc. “It was hard work, but it gave me a good work ethic, a good paycheck for a college kid, and I got to work with a great group of guys.” S.R.S

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Trash for Cash

On the morning of July 17, our small group consisting of nine students and nine adults from St. Mary School in Alexandria, cleaned the roadways along Alexandria Pike and Woeste Road. It took us approximately 90 minutes and we collected 26 bags of litter. Most of the litter was plastic soda bottles and fast food wrappers, but nothing out of the ordinary. We covered five miles and raised $500 for the Class of 2011 with the Trash for Cash Program, which is headed up by Campbell County Solid Waste. It is a great program, the kids had fun, got messy, but realized the work involved in cleaning up after inconsiderate people. A few would sometimes call out to passing cars, “Don’t litter!” Two thoughts I would like to share with the public: 1. Don’t litter, it’s disrespectful to your community and just plain being a slob, and;

Siblings Sam and Maddy Shelton pose for in front of their home in Fort Thomas.

Fort Thomas Shelton siblings more like best friends Fort Thomas siblings Sam and Maddy Shelton may have very different personalities, but that doesn’t stop them from being best friends. “I’m kind of the yin, and she’s the yang,” said Sam, 12, about he and his sister Maddy, 11. “She’s very smart and helps me with my math and stuff, and I make her laugh a lot.” The Sheltons, who are both going to be in sixth grade at Highlands Middle School this year, do almost everything together, from playing outside to being part of after school activities like the Robotics Club. Even with all the time they spend together, they don’t fight like many other

siblings, said their mother Julie Shelton. “She’ll get mad and yell, he’ll be quite and listen and they’ll calmly work it out,” Julie said. Being so close, the brother and sister said they often think alike. “I remember this time we did a project at school and even though we were in separate groups, we both came up with the same idea,” Sam said. Maddy said her brother is always there when she needs him, and he’s never hard to find. “He’s the tallest person in our grade, so I can always find him,” Maddy said.

Summertime’s kicks

By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

On Lisa Lane in Alexandria, “kicking it” in the street is perfectly acceptable until someone yells “CAR!” and the game is delayed. Regular kickball games rule summertime evenings on the suburban street as parents sit together in a row of lawn chairs watching their children play together in the informal league. Score isn’t kept, and the game ends when everyone is too tired to play or the sun goes down – whichever comes first. The children have nicknames like “Iron Foot” and “Ducky” and the girls in the group regularly wear bright neon-striped knee high stockings and face paint for games. “We love being with

Neighborhood rules are that any ball hit out of the street is an out for the older children, he said. Clohe Bischoff, 9, Ron’s daughter, said “kicking” was her favorite part of the game, and she also likes putting on face paint to get ready to play. “It’s just fun,” she said. Abby Vann, 13, said the trick to kicking the ball is to stand back, then run at the ball. Vann is known as “Ducky��� because she wears an inflatable duck pool float around her waist during many games. Megan Straman, 17, is known as “Iron Foot” because of how hard she kicks the ball. Mitchell Steffen, 10, is “Slim Slam,” and Brittenee French, 8, is known as “French Fry.” Lily Bischoff, 11, became known by the nick name

The stockings have to be brightly colored, Bischoff said. “Oh yes, they have to be awesome,” she said. Julie French, mother of Brittenee, said she enjoys sitting and talking with her neighbors and watching the children play because it feels like one big family. “This is our time to bond as neighbors,” she said.

Hannah Webber, 4, cools off with a blast of mist from a hose while taking a break from a game of kickball. This is the second year of regular kickball games on the street, said Karen Steffen, mother of two of the players. This year’s season started with a game during a neighborhood cookout on Memorial Day weekend. It will continue all summer until school starts, and even then there will be some games on the weekends in the fall, she said. The children also swim, rides bicycles and skateboards, and have lots of sleepovers year-round, said Amber Vann, mother of Abby. Vann said the kickball is the something everyone looks forward to. The game will make summer memories the children will cherish as adults, she said. “It’s something they’ll always remember,” Vann said.

What you’ll feel when a close relationship ends It’s said a most precious situation in life occurs when we are able to achieve three important things: to love someone; to have this someone love me; and to have both these things happen at the same time. We smile and knowingly admit, “Yes, but it doesn’t always happen this way.” In his book, “To Love and Be Loved,” Sam Keen relates a crucial time in his life. He was a young man in college and in love with a girl who said she loved him. They often discussed, and really believed, that their relationship was destined for a lifelong journey of bliss. Then, he writes, “In April, the cruelest of months, she came for the spring dance, and after the last waltz, sudden as death, she told me she didn’t love me anymore… “When she left, I collapsed into grief and incomprehension. I

never heard from her again. No letter. No calls. No explanations … All meaning, delight and promise seemed to have from Father Lou vanished my life.” Guntzelman Millions of can Perspectives people empathize with his feelings. And whether it happens when we’re young or old, it’s always painful. We never want it to happen again. Numbed by our grief, we often resort to one of the following defenses. 1. Pessimism: we conclude we’re unlovable, people are untrustworthy, or we decide love is an illusion and try to protect ourselves from loving again. 2. Pseudoromanticism: we

engage in sex for merely selfish purposes, play at being romantic or pretend we love another – but cut and run when things get too serious. That way, we’re never hurt, our ego is soothed, and the pain happens to someone else. It’s sort of a revenge for what happened to us. 3. Pragmatism: We settle for platonic or practical relationships, avoid intense expressions of romance, and relate as a good friend rather than lover. At times of hurt, disillusionment or cynicism, we see no wisdom in the centuries-old adage: “Tis better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all.” Heartaches, though never sought, are part of human existence. When they happen to us they seem devoid of any good aspect, they’re only catastrophic. It takes time to grasp the bigger picture of our lives.

We can’t see how the relational suffering in our lives accomplishes anything but a broken heart. Only later do we dare admit that they often can have some benefit for us: they open unrevealed places in our hearts, create compassion for others, and give birth to a greater wisdom about ourselves, life and the real meaning of love. Ernest Hemingway stated a great truth when he wrote, “Life breaks everyone, and afterward, many are strong in the broken places.” Those are just some of the reasons why it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. Yet there is even a greater reason. Though we may lose the one we love, we have still accomplished what many yearn for but do not savor. For anytime we gen-

uinely love, we are a magnificent success both spiritually and psychologically. As Rilke attests, “For one human being to love another human being: that is perhaps the most difficult task that has been entrusted to us, the ultimate test, the final test and proof, the work for which all other work is preparatory.” The challenge to every human is to love. If our love is not returned, our call still remains. As Dr. James Hollis puts it: “The great rhythm of gain and loss is outside our control; what remains within our control is the attitude of willingness to find, in even the bitterest losses, what remains to be lived.” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Chowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; down on local cathedral chefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recipes There are a lot of cookbooks brought to my attention to review. Joanne â&#x20AC;&#x153;Giovannaâ&#x20AC;? Delli Carpini Trimpeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Holy Chowâ&#x20AC;? really stands out in the stack. Giovanna is the chef at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral in downtown Cincinnati and is the author of this book, thus the name. The book itself is vibrant with color and reflects Giovannaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unorthodox approach to cooking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hardest thing about the book was having to measure everything,â&#x20AC;? she told me. She has been cooking since she was 14 and never measured, just cooked â&#x20AC;&#x153;to tasteâ&#x20AC;? like many of us. Career-wise, she worked for family, doing accounting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did not like that,â&#x20AC;? she told me. Her interest in food led to catering and volunteering for school dinners and church events. Giovanna has a rich cooking background, having lived in Italy, Venezuela and in the U.S. Her passion for good

food made with love h a s become legendary here in our area, and that led her to the job she currently occupies at St.

Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. So how did she get the job? Her husband, Mike, working on his masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in lay ministry, invited Deacon David Klingshirn to dinner. He told her their chef was leaving and that she should apply. The book itself is an interesting read, with stories and Bible quotes (from her husband) that go along with each recipe. It is available online at http://holychowcookbook.com or by calling 513-295-2510.

Use 4 chicken breasts pounded thin, to about 1 inch. Sprinkle 1â &#x201E;2 teaspoon each kosher salt and 1â &#x201E;2 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper on chicken. Put 1 cup all-purpose flour in a bowl and dip chicken in to cover both sides. Shake off excess. Put 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil in large skillet on medium heat.

Add 3 cloves chopped garlic and cook to light brown; donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t burn. Add 1â &#x201E;2 teaspoon each kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper. Add chicken. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t crowd. Cook each side for three minutes. Add another teaspoon of olive oil if necessary.

Take chicken out of skillet and add 1 cup fresh mushrooms or a 7-ounce can. Cook one to two minutes. Then on simmering heat add 3â &#x201E;4 cup Marsala wine. Loosen residue and add 1 â &#x201E;4 cup fresh chopped flat leaf

Put chicken back in sauce and cook on simmer for five minutes. Flip occasionally and just before removing pour 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice over.

Update on radio rolls

Tom Heitkamp, a Mount Lookout reader, made the recipe that he sent me from a website. They turned out well, though he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re authentic. The glaze was a disappointment, however, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working on that part. I checked with Rose Levy Beranbaum, the queen of baking, and she has never heard of these rolls. Does anybody know of a

bakery here that still sells them?

Sprinkle in a little over half the cheese, salt and pepper, and just enough of the reserved water to make a sauce. If you need more water, add it. Add arugula, mix and serve, garnished with rest of cheese. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.

Realtors association presents check to COTA The Northern Kentucky Association of Realtors held their seventh annual NKAR golf outing this summer at Twin Oaks & Plantation Club in Covington. The NKAR Affiliate Council orchestrates the event every year and they select a charity to receive the proceeds. When a longtime NKAR member approached the

council to consider her request they just couldn’t refuse. Ruth Voorhees, from Huff Realty, told them all about her special grandson, Jonathan, who had undergone a liver transplant at the age of 8 months old. The Affiliate Council presented a check for $6,317 to the Children’s Organ Transplant Association to

the Jonathan V. Fund at their meeting July 13 held at the NKAR Office. Ruth Voorhees, her son William Voorhees and Jonathan were present to accept the check. As Jonathan’s family said, “Jonathan is a little miracle. We have learned that miracles happen all around us all the time. It is

gram, Huff completed a variety of training which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness. The capstone event of boot camp is “Battle Stations.” This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. “Battle Stations” is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. Its distinctly “Navy” flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a Sailor. Huff is the son of Marcy L. and David J. Huff of Alexandria. Huff is a 2008 graduate of Campbell County High School.

On the record

July 29, 2010

Tenth annual celebration of ‘All things Goetta’ The 10th annual Glier’s Goettafest will be held Aug. 6-8, at Newport’s Riverfront Levee, just down the steps from the Newport Aquarium. Goetta (pronounced get-uh) is a blend of pork, beef, spices, and nutritious steel cut oats. Glier’s, founded in 1946, is the largest producer of goetta in the world. Glier’s Goettafest began in 2001. The Goettafest story is very simple according to Mark Balasa, marketing director for Glier’s Goetta. “Greater Cincinnatians love their goetta and many make it a special family tradition!” “Goettafest is a terrific way to

bring everyone together to try new and familiar goetta dishes and be entertained. Goettafest is like a big family reunion!” Over 100,000 Goetta lovers, and the soon to be anointed, gather from near and far at the 3-day festival. This year’s festival will feature more than 30 different Goetta dishes. Many of the best local festival food vendors and restaurants gather to cook a variety of goetta dishes. Expect to see returning favorites such as the Goetta Reuben, and Goetta Balls. Papa John’s offers the famous Goetta Pizza and Goetta Calzones. Cincinnati favorites such as Busken Bak-

ery (Goetta Goobers and Goetta Fudge Brownies) will also participate. Colonial Cottage returns with the famous Goetta Nachos. New to this year’s Goettafest are: • Competitive Goetta Coney Eating Contest: George Phelps, owner of the Chili Rocks will coordinate the daily contest. • Graeter’s Ice Cream Introduces a Goetta topping. • Goetta Unplugged: A second stage has been added spotlighting local musical talent. The setting will be under a tent with views of the Ohio River. Local musician Tom Bodner manages this. • Brand New Goetta Vending

Machine: This classic icon of Goettafest will premier at Goettafest 10 as a brand new, state-of-the-art vending machine. This is the only Goetta Vending Machine in the world! Dispenses specially priced one pound rolls of Goetta. • Local beers: Goettafest is all about celebrating the region’s local specialties so adding Hudy Delight and other local beers just makes sense. • All new www.goettafest.com: The new site features all aspects of Glier’s Goettafest including menu, activities, and entertainment. Continuous live music from the main stage is a tradition at

Goettafest. Along with the music, festival guests can enjoy the many Goettafest games and children’s rides. Look for the return of the popular Goetta Toss and the Goetta Slide games. Proceeds from the games will go to the local Covington charity, Welcome House. For more information please contact Mark Balasa at 859-2911800 x 225, or at mark@goetta.com.

SMALL BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT

CHRIS MAYHEW/STAFF

Robert Coble, owner of the Sears Hometown store in the Alexandria Village Green Shopping Center, inside his showroom filled with appliances, televisions, tools and lawn and garden equipment.

‘Hometown’ Sears makes space for customer service Robert Coble stocks his newly opened Sears Hometown Store in Alexandria with a little bit of everything the retailer sells. “The concept is to have a little bit of everything you need in the smaller towns,” Coble said. Located in the Alexandria Village Green Shopping Center, the store isn’t limited by its 6,000-square-feet of display space, Coble said. It’s typical for someone to order something from Sears’ almost 7-million item catalog of parts and retail items through the store and it will be delivered the next day, he said. Free shipping direct to a person’s home is often available within two or three days too, Coble said. The store opened without much fanfare June 24 as a way to make sure everything worked smoothly

before having any kind of grand opening, he said. Coble said a date hasn’t been scheduled, but there will be a grand opening before the end of August. Coble said customers have already been coming in to buy lawn and garden equipment especially because of several people busting their lawn mowers by hitting large rocks, he said. While it lasts, Coble said he can help customers apply for a $50 federal Energy Star rebate when they buy an eligible washer or refrigerator. “We can get the energy rebates for them for as long as they last,” he said. Store hours are 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Call 859-448-9800.

Art After Hours celebrates finale of summer reading program By Amanda Joering Alley

ajoering@nky.com

Adult patrons of the Campbell County Library enjoyed an evening of art, music and food at the third annual Art After Hours event. The event, held at the Fort Thomas branch of the library Friday, July 30, served as the finale to the adult summer reading program. Ryan Stacy, the library’s adult services librarian, said the event began at the Cold Spring branch in 2008. “It was such a success and went over so well, so we did it again in Newport last year,” Stacy said. “We are very happy to have the event in Fort Thomas this year.” The event featured music by the Lou Lausche Jazz Quartet, food and drinks from locals like Stonebrook Winery, Fantasy in Frosting and Lother’s Catering, and art from 14 different artists. Former Fort Thomas resident and artist Paula Risch Head displayed her oil landscapes at the event.

“I just love promoting art, and I think this event is a great way to promote local artists,” Head said. While the event was catered to adult patrons, one child, 11-year-old Paul Tully, was invited, not as a visitor, but as an artist. “I started finger painting when I was 1, and I really enjoyed it,” said Tully, who had his work on display at the event. “Now I use brushes, but it’s still a lot of fun.” Stacy said while the event shows off local artists, it also shows off what the library has to offer. “This event really draws attention to our summer reading program, which is getting bigger every year,” Stacy said. “It is always great to see the community come out and support the library.” The library’s summer reading program encourages patrons of all ages to read by offering incentives for reading books and attending library activities. For adults, these incentives include gift certificates to local stores and restaurants.

Here are ten rules for being human Father Lou is off this week. The Community Press is running a column that was orginally published Jan. 3, 2007.

1. You will receive a body. You may like it or dislike it, but it’s yours for life. Make friends with it, respect it, and listen to it. Your body always tells you many truths about yourself. 2. There are no mistakes, only lessons. You are made to grow, and growth is a process of trial and error, learning, and moving on. The pains of past failures are even more a teacher than the joys of gains and successes. Live and learn! 3. A lesson will be repeated until it is learned. Realize that

you cannot keep performing the same behavior and expect different results. Who, or whatever, hurts you and goes against your true growth, let go of and move on. Wise up! 4. The most important things in life are loving relationships. Your Creator’s initial advice was, “It is not good to be alone.” That was not advice against enjoying solitude but a warning about being unconnected and emotionally alone. Being in orbit around your own ego makes a mighty small world and a selfish person. Care about others! Learn to love! 5. Other people can serve as mirrors. The significant traits you like or despise about another per-

son frequently reflect something unconscious you like or despise about yourself - but which you find it hard to admit. Know thyself! 6. Whether it’s a place or a time of life, “there” is not always better than “here.” Too often the best seems to be happening “there.” But if you get “there” it then becomes a “here” and you will likely yearn for another “there” that seems better than “here.” Don’t always be living looking at a “there.” Always appreciate the “here,” the “now!” 7. Every human person has many aspects: body, soul, mind and heart. Leaving any part of yourself undeveloped produces a lop-sided and unfulfilled

person. To the extent that you develop all the parts of your humanness makes your life either a work of art or a blurred picture. Become more whole! 8. The most wonderful part of you lies deep within. It’s called “soul,” or “core,” or “true self.” It starts talking to you the loudest in the second half of your life. If you listen, it will impart wisdom, truths, and exquisite understanding you’ve never had before. If you don’t listen, you’ll miss the meaning of your life. Don’t be afraid to reflect! To listen! 9. You create your own climate. That’s because of the power of the thoughts you entertain, the attitudes you keep, the choices you make. Gripe and think nega-

tively and your life will always Father Lou be overcast and Guntzelman dark. Appreciate, and you’ll Perspectives start noticing the many good things you have. You get the emotional climate you develop. Why rain on yourself? 10. There are many “important” things in this life, and there are a few things that are really “essential.” Never, never exchange the essential for the important. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@ communitypress.com or P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242.

Be careful before purchasing appliance warranty I’m seeing more and more companies these days offering warranties that claim to cover all your home appliances. But, is it a good idea to sign up, or are you better off saving your money and just paying for repairs as needed? It’s not unusual to find a whole house appliance warranty offered by the seller when you looking to buy an existing house. Now some national firms, and even some local appliance repair shops, have begun offering this to all. Sherri Burton of Amelia received an ad from a national company for such a warranty for about $40 a

m o n t h and said it looked like a great deal. “ I f something w e n t r o n g Howard Ain w you were Hey Howard! to contact them and you got a claim number. I guess they subcontract. They would come out here. I would pay a $75 deductible,” said Burton. Soon after signing up she encountered a problem with her stove and called, but was very surprised at the response she received. “Bottom line, they didn’t

want to fix it. They just wanted to replace a knob and then, if something else went wrong, they’d have to come back here and fix it,” she said. Burton had to pay the $75 deductible but says she just went out and bought a new stove. Next, Burton’s furnace started making a lot of noise so she again called the warranty company. A repairman came out but, “He said as long as the furnace was running he can’t do anything. It has to not be running,” she said. The furnace then started overheating so she called again. “He turned the furnace

on and said, ‘As long as the furnace is running there’s nothing I can do.’ I said, ‘Would you like a Coke because after it kicks on the second or third time it’s going to overheat?’ Well, it did,” said Burton. Burton was then told the repairman couldn’t fix the furnace because he couldn’t get parts since it was too old. But now, in the warm summer weather, the air conditioner is also overheating so she can’t get her house cool. “I thought it was going to be a great company for $40 a month, $75 deductible,” said Burton. “It’s about saving me money, but appar-

ently it’s about making them money.” The company wouldn’t respond to my phone calls so I had Burton file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. The company has responded to complaints filed with the bureau. After Burton filed her complaint, the warranty company sent out another repairman to check the furnace. He found the problem was with the blower motor and it had to be replaced. Burton had to pay $500, but the new motor solved the problem. Now Burton is trying to get back that $500 from the warranty compa-

ny. The Better Business Bureau says it’s received about 700 complaints about this company from people who say the firm would not pay for needed repairs. In response, the company says consumers need to read the contract thoroughly and fully understand exactly what’s included and what’s excluded. Bottom line, you need to be very careful before agreeing to any of these warranties. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12. Write to him at 12 WKRC-TV, 1906 Highland Ave., Cincinnati 45219.

Rub shoulders with old-fashioned pork barbeque Our little flock of chickens has one less member today. And it’s my fault. L a s t Rita night, I Heikenfeld forgot to Rita’s kitchen lock the chickens in their pen. This morning, when I went out to feed them, I saw a trail of white feathers leading down to the river bank. Not a good sign – I immediately thought “raccoons.” And that’s how our only white feathered hen, “Whitey,” as the kids called her, met her untimely demise. So you can understand when I say I just don’t feel like sharing any recipes today for, you guessed it: chicken.

Pour dressing over cabbage mixture. Cover and refrigerate four hours or overnight. Stir before serving.

Tips from Rita’s garden

COURTESY RITA HEIKENFELD.

Rita clips the blooms off fresh basil to keep the plant focused on its leaves.

Rita’s do-ahead marinated slaw

This is delicious with the barbecue, and a bit different than the norm.

Salad:

Combine and set aside while making dressing:

Easy pork shoulder for barbeque

There’s an old-fashioned type of meat that folks are starting to rediscover. It’s fresh pork shoulder (and when it’s smoked it’s sometimes called cottage ham or smoked pork butt). I use it to make goetta since it has a nice layer of fat which keeps the goetta moist. (See sidebar on Glier’s Goettafest.) I also use it to make barbeque. It’s so delicious that I’ll save some of the roasted pork to serve for supper before I make the barbecue,

CE-0000401453

Rita picking berries at her elderberry bush. and serve it with boiled noodles. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Score the fat on top of a boneless pork shoulder, about 5 to 7 pounds. Season with salt and pepper and place, fat side up, in a Dutch oven or roasting pan with about a cup of water. Roast until some of the fat has melted, about an hour. Remove pan and reduce

COURTESY RITA HEIKENFELD

temperature to 350 degrees. Tightly cover pan with foil or a lid. Cook about three to four hours more, or until meat is tender enough to shred with forks. When cool enough to handle, remove fat if you want and shred meat into bite size pieces. This freezes well. To serve, stir in favorite barbecue sauce to taste, and heat until hot throughout.

6-8 cups shredded cabbage or cole slaw mix 2 carrots, sliced thin or shredded 1 bell pepper, chopped 1 cup onion, chopped

Dressing:

Bring to a boil, then simmer, uncovered, 10-15 minutes or so, until slightly thickened: 1 cup sugar 1 cup cider vinegar 1 ⁄2 cup water 2 teaspoons mustard seed (optional but good) or 1 ⁄2 teaspoon celery seed (also optional)

Harvesting basil: Be sure and snip the flower heads that are forming on basil. Otherwise, energy will go into the flowers and seeds, and leaf production will suffer. The flowers of all culinary herbs are edible. (I do let one plant go to seed for next year’s crop). Roasted whole plum tomatoes: These make a delicious sauce for pasta. You can also freeze them up to six months. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Toss tomatoes with a bit of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Lay in single layer on rimmed baking sheets. If you have some fresh thyme, tuck several sprigs in between the tomatoes. Bake until they burst, about 45 to 60 minutes, rotating pans halfway through. Let cool, then coarsely chop.

Salsa verde at Rincon Mexicano restaurant in Eastgate. For Denise Martinez. “I have tried several different recipes and can’t seem to duplicate the one at Rincon.” Applespice Junction’s chicken tortilla soup. For Amy. “I cannot figure out how to duplicate this chain restaurant’s soup.” She said

Goettafest

The 10th annual Glier’s Goettafest will be held Friday through Sunday, Aug. 6-8, at Newport’s Riverfront Levee, just down the steps from the Newport Aquarium. Look for the return of the popular Goetta Toss and the Goetta Slide games. Proceeds from the games will go to the Covington charity, Welcome House. Also be sure to check out www.goettafest.com for menu and entertainment listings. it has a little spice flavor, and thicker than other chicken tortilla soups. The Polo Grille’s corn and tomato salsa and Bravo!’s original focaccia bread and dipping oil. For Jane in Montgomery. She said the salsa looked pretty simple with roasted corn, tomatoes, garlic salt. “So good.” And about Bravo!’s focaccia, Jane said they changed their recipe and it’s not nearly as good as the original, which she thinks may have had mashed potatoes in it. Like Panera Bread’s black bean soup. For MaryAlice Staats, a Forest Hills Journal reader. “There are a couple in some of my cookbooks but none that compare with theirs. Any help would be appreciated.” Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. E-mail columns@community press.com with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line. Call 513-2487130, ext. 356.
