Firefighters dig in to help infant By Amanda Joering Alley

What started as a burrito-eating contest for fun, has brought local firefighters together to help one of their comrades in need. In July, Gavin Michael Richmond, son of lieutenant Jim Richmond from the Fire Department of Bellevue-Dayton, was born with three different congenital heart defects. After hearing about Gavin from some local firefighters who were eating lunch at Jalapeno’s MexMex Restaurant in Cold Spring, manager Brandy Johnson-Chavez

thought the contest she was planning would make an entertaining, successful fundraiser for the family. “I thought it would make a great fundraiser and it has,” Johnson-Chavez said during the event Aug. 19. “This place has been rocking all day.” Brent Schafer, who works full time with Richmond in BellevueDayton and part time at the Central Campbell County Fire Department, helped organize the event and bring firefighters together from Bellevue-Dayton, Central Campbell, Elsmere, Camp Springs, Silver Grove, Eastern Campbell, Southern Campbell, Fort Thomas,

Wilder, Southgate and Alexandria. “The family has insurance, but there are a lot of other expenses they need help with, so we wanted to do as much as we could for them,” Schafer said. “They have a long road ahead of them, so it’s really awesome to see all these departments come together to help.” Richmond said Gavin has already had one surgery on his heart, has another scheduled in a couple months and will have his third, and hopefully last, when he is 3 or 4 years old. Richmond said he can’t believe how many people came to the

event to support him, his son and his son’s mother, Kim Amlung. “It’s pretty wild,” Richmond said. Throughout the day, Jalapeno’s donated 15 percent of each check to Gavin and accepted donations. “The community really came together today and made things happen,” Johnson-Chavez said. “We hope to host more fundraisers for whoever needs them in the future.” Donations to Gavin can be made at the Fire Department of Bellevue-Dayton, 514 Sixth Ave., Dayton, or by calling Brent Schafer at 393-6693.

Reader’s Choice: Your local favorites By Amanda Joering Alley

and Chris Mayhew

In June, The Community Recorder presented readers with a ballot of 100 categories so they could choose their favorites ranging from American vehicle to produce to women’s clothing. And readers responded, filling out newspaper and online ballots with their choices. You can find the complete list of Reader’s Choice favorites in today’s special section. We’ve talked with some of our readers’ top choices about how they keep their customers coming back. Grant’s Lick Veterinary Hospital, 13169 Alexandria Pike, placed first in the voting for veterinarians. “I think all of us here feel very proud and humbled that the residents of Campbell County and Northern Kentucky trust us with their animals’ care,” said veterinarian Joseph Crowley, who owns the business with veterinarian Steve Enzweiler. Crowley said his father, Joseph Crowley, who started the hospital in Grant’s Lick in 1962, worked hard to establish a reputation as an honest veterinarian and others


Josh Harrell, left, a sophomore at Northern Kentucky University, and Kaity Buddenberg, a freshman, both residents of Aurora, Ind., stroll from the new Student Union building to the campus book store Aug. 18 in preparation for the start of classes Aug. 24. have carried that tradition forward, Crowley said. Now the hospital has a satellite location in Falmouth and has seven veterinarians and 22 support staff employees. The hospital is unique because it still tries to offer its own emergency services, and it’s one of the last Northern Kentucky clinics to offer large animal services, especially for food animals, Crowley said. In the best Italian restaurant category, Pompilio’s Restaurant,

600 Washington Ave., in Newport topped the list. The restaurant, which opened in April 1933, prides itself on its long history in the city and its made-fresh menu items. “We certainly feel that we have a little bit of an advantage having been here so long,” said manager Joe Bristo. “A lot of people were brought here by their parents and now they bring their kids here.” Bristo said customers seem to appreciate the food they offer, which is made fresh and not

ordered from somewhere else for at least 95 percent of the menu items, and the value they get. “People are certainly looking for value these days, and we offer that,” Bristo said. “We really appreciate our customers and everyone that voted for us.” Meters & Miles Run and Walk Shop, 317 Monmouth St., in Newport won the readers’ the vote for best athletic shoes. The shop specializes in running and walking shoes for everyone from casual walkers to marathon runners, said sales representative Jennifer Sprague. “We offer a service that you can’t get at other places,” Sprague said. “We’ll measure your size, look at your feet, watch you walk or run and adjust the shoes to make sure your feet and body feel as good as they can while you’re walking or running.” With a well-educated staff of track coaches and runners, Sprague said Meters & Miles offers customers the assistance they need.

Program features exercise, nature study By Chris Mayhew

Get a workout while learning to protect the environment and your body during the second annual Shape Up and Go Green series Sept. 1 through Oct. 27. The free nine-week series will be at the Campbell County Environmental Education Center at A.J. Jolly Park from 10 a.m. to noon each Tuesday starting Sept. 1. Each walking class will have different incentives

and lessons including free pedometers and water bottles for everyone during the Sept. 1 kickoff. The kickoff also includes a nature hike, some basic health information, and a lesson about how to walk properly. Other programs will feature topics ranging from saving energy at home to recycling and composting and an “Organic Foods 101” session. Participants will also be encouraged to walk on their own throughout the week and track how far they travel.

Sign up to ‘Shape Up’ Registration is required for the free Shape Up and Go Green walking and education series at the Campbell County Environmental Education Center 10 a.m. to noon each Tuesday Sept. 1 through Oct. 27. To register call 572-2600. “There’s just a real need to get out and be active,” said Kate Vaught, co-organizer of Shape Up and Go Green and agent for family and consumer sciences for

the Campbell County Cooperative Extension Service. According to a 2004 study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Kentucky was ranked as the least physically active state in the nation, Vaught said. Plus, walking in the woods is more fun than on a treadmill or a sidewalk, she said. “And just the act of walking out in nature will make people appreciate nature more,” she said. So far, there are 48 people registered to participate,

and there’s unlimited room for people to enroll, said DJ Scully, co-organizer and the extension agent for natural resources and environmental management. Scully said he thinks many people are interested in learning how they can change their lives to make them “greener,” but the programs will also tell people about reasons whey they need to change to more environmentally friendly lifestyle. The reasons for buying and eating organic fruits and vegetables are one good

example, because it’s not like there is necessarily a taste difference, he said. “While they might not be any healthier for you to consume, but they’re a lot healthier for the environment in how they’re produced by not using a lot of chemicals,” Scully said. Shape Up and Go Green is also a good way to ease into a fitness routine, he said. “This is a good way to get healthy before the winter months and then remain healthy by walking,” Scully said.

County puts more of court fee to work By Chris Mayhew

The Campbell County Fiscal Court will pay $15,000 out of the courthouse facilities fee the county has been collecting since 2003 to supplement funding in the Commonwealth Attorney’s office. With the money, a parttime position will be made full-time in Campbell County Commonwealth’s Attorney Michelle Snodgrass’ office. Fiscal Court has spent more than $150,000 since 2006 to pay for a jail population coordinator to manage the number of inmates and has about $850,000 left from fees collected.

State law allows the county to collect the fee, which in turn must be used on court-related costs. The extra employee will work with the courts and attorneys to get people charged to receive a court judgment quicker case decided, said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine. The state doesn’t start paying the county anything for housing prisoners until someone is sentenced for a felony. Once a prisoner is sentenced as a felon, the state starts paying the county a daily per diem of $32.51 for the inmate’s housing costs. So, until a felony suspect is sentenced, the county is

picking up the bill alone, Horine said. Snodgrass said some counties including Jefferson County, have a similar system known as a “rocket docket,” but Campbell County’s system will be different. “I think since it’s not going to be quite the same, I think we would just call it something like an expedited docket,” she said. Snodgrass said she asked the Fiscal Court for the partnership because she’s seen the financial strain that suspects waiting in jail for a day in court puts on the county’s budget. “I thought there’s got to be able to be some way to help through our office,

however I didn’t have the staff to do that,” Snodgrass said. The average time before a suspect jailed for a felony waits for a court verdict and sentencing is about 75 days, Snodgrass said. “If I get somebody before a judge, I could have a case concluded in maybe 30 days,” she said. To qualify, defendants would have to agree to waive their right to have their case presented to a grand jury. Instead, prosecutors would present a judge with an “information” case where the defendant admits there is enough probable cause to bring the charge. Snodgrass said her office

Public has chance to learn about swine flu In an effort to educate members of the community about the emerging swine flu (H1N1) virus, the Northern Kentucky Health Department has planned presentations at local libraries. The presentations are open to the general public on a first come, first served basis as space permits. Experts from the Health Department will address topics such as symptoms of swine flu, caring for an infected person, how to avoid spreading and contracting swine flu, and the latest available information regarding swine flu vaccinations. Locally, the event will be held

from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 10, at the Newport branch of the Campbell County Public Library, 901 E. Sixth St., in Newport. It will include a question and answer session. “As we head into the fall and winter season, swine flu is expected to continue to affect our community,” said Steven R. Katkowsky, M.D., district director of health. “The best way to plan for this unusual flu season is to become informed. These community presentations are the first phase of an ongoing public information campaign to educate Northern Kentucky residents in hopes of reducing the spread of

the infection in our community.” The Health Department has also planned a summit on swine flu for professionals, including health care workers, local government officials and school staff on Sept. 9. Professionals wanting more information or to register should contact Taffiny Paul at 859-341-4264, Ext. 2226. For more information on the swine flu, please visit the Health Department’s Web site at Anyone with questions about the community presentations may contact Emily Gresham Wherle at 859-344-5470 or

already handle some cases in the manner the special program will. Only certain types of cases will qualify, she said. “This is going to be somebody that doesn’t have a record, not every defendant will qualify,” Snodgrass said. One example would be a defendant charged with not paying their child support. “If they’re locked up in the county jail the goal is to get them out there and working, so they can pay that back,” she said. Snodgrass said as few as 10 cases like that could make up the $15,000 the Fiscal Court is investing, and that her office will likely handle more cases than

Meeting time change

The next Fiscal Court meeting at the Alexandria Courthouse, 8352 East Main St., has been rescheduled to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 2. The normal 7 p.m. meeting time would have conflicted with timing of the annual parade for the Alexandria Fair & Horse Show, planned for the same evening along East Main Street. that using an expedited docket procedure. Not only will it save the county jail money, it will bring swifter justice, and victims of crime will not have to wait as long for the case to be resolved, she said. “It’s helping out the jail and it’s helping out the taxpayer,” Snodgrass said.

Starns said in a news release she had no idea she would take home an autographed toilet. “This really is the highlight of my week,” Starns said. “I’m going to use it as a chair in my living room. I think it’s a fun piece that will be an excellent conversation starter and add some humor to the room.” PROVIDED

Vigil for troops planned in Florence By Justin B. Duke


Battery Hooper days

Six-year-old Newport resident Josh Brummett asked for a photo with James O'Brien, an 11-year re-enactor, who portrays an 1860s era preacher at the Fifth Annual Battery Hooper Days Aug. 23 in Fort Wright.

A group of mothers are working to support the nation’s troops. The Northern Kentucky chapter of the Blue Star Mothers of America will host a candlelight vigil in honor of soldiers who’ve served the United States in the past and present. The vigil begins at 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 29, at the Florence Veteran’s Memorial, 8100 Ewing Blvd. “It’s just a way to show our respect to those in the military,” said Lorene Friedman, a member of the Blue Star Mothers. Blue Star Mothers is made up of the mothers of soldiers and serves as a way for the mothers to support each other while their child is away. The group is working to

get its name known, so even more mothers can be supported, said President Kimberly Piol. “We want to know every mother in our area who doesn’t know we exist,” Piol said. The city of Florence recognized the help the group could offer with the vigil and allowed them to use the Veteran’s Memorial, Friedman said. “Without the support of the officials of the city, Blue Star Mothers would still be

struggling to be recognized,” she said. During the vigil, there will be guest speakers and musicians. Gold Star Mothers will be the guests of honor, Friedman said. Gold Star Mothers are women whose children died serving their country. “There’ll be no fanfare or anything; they’ll just be our honored guests,” Friedman said. This will be the first vigil the group hosts at the memorial, but Piol plans to


make it an annual event. “Please come and support those who are fighting or who have fought,” she said. For more information about the Northern Kentucky Blue Star Mothers visit

Alumni group donates $9,900 for ACT prep By Amanda Joering Alley

Alumni events planned for HHS homecoming weekend By Amanda Joering Alley

For the second year, the Highlands High School Alumni Association is hoping to bring the Highlands community back together for the HHS Alumni Homecoming Weekend. The events, which run from Friday, Sept. 18 through Sunday, Sept. 20, include a Tail Feather Party, tour of the renovated high school and an alumni brunch. “(This is) an opportunity to bring together the entire Highlands community with an offering of events over HHS homecoming weekend and as a supplement to the activities planned by reunion classes celebrating over the weekend,” said Alan Thomas, president of the alumni association.

“There seems to be a special bond between HHS alumni and the entire Highlands family, which includes parents, grandparents of students, community friends and students and the overall school district.” Thomas said the alumni and friends of the school really stepped up and came together when it came to raising funds for the high school renovation. “There is a community spirit and tradition of excellence in Fort Thomas that fosters this special bond,” Thomas said. Thomas said the association, through special events during the year, strives to create lifelong relationships among the Highlands family. “The Highlands High School Alumni Association is a great way


Bellevue High School is hoping to see higher ACT scores out of students in the future thanks to a $9,900 donation from the Bellevue High School Alumni Association. The money is being used to pay for an ACT preparedness program for teachers and students taught by two teachers from Beechwood High School. “Bellevue High School is small and its alumni group is small, but we wanted to do something that would help improve students’ ACT scores,” said Flo Grey, president of the group. “We give away scholarships to individual students every year, but we felt this was like giving a scholarship that would help many students.” While some schools offer the

program or other programs like it, they require parents to pay the costs, which can be more than $400 per student, said Principal Mike Wills. “We have 70 percent of our students on free or reduced lunches, so we know a lot of parents in Bellevue can’t afford to pay for programs like this,” Wills said. “It is just monumental that the alumni association gave this gift to the students because it’s a phenomenal opportunity for them.” Through teacher training, implementation of the program into daily lessons and activities and assessments for the students, the hope is that the program will greatly increase Bellevue’s ACT scores. “This was started by two teachers in Beechwood, a school that has the highest scores in the state,” Wills said. “Those results prove that the program helps.”

to connect and engage with former classmates as well as current students and faculty at Highlands,” Thomas said. The Tail Feather Party is 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 18 on the plaza of Highland United Methodist Church, followed by the Highlands versus Boone County football game at 7:30 p.m. The tours of the new renovated high school are at 9 a.m., 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 19, followed by a alumni reception from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Hofbrauhaus in Newport. The alumni brunch is at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 20 at Barrington of Fort Thomas, 940 Highland Ave. For more information contact the alumni association at or 572-0667.

Scholars honored by Gov. Beshear Gov. Steve Beshear congratulated 1,032 Kentucky high school juniors, who attended this year’s Governor’s Scholars Program for five weeks during June and July, Aug. 10. “The Governor’s Scholars Program is an outstanding educational experience for Kentucky and one I’m proud to say both of my sons had the opportunity to enjoy,” Beshear said. “My congratulations to those young Kentuckians who had the great opportunity to share in this exciting program.” The honored students included many Campbell County residents including Joseph Fessler of Bellevue; Justin Fischesser, David Greis, Anna Poston and Michael Rebholz of Bishop Brossart; Madi-

son Holbrook, Dane Michael, Demetria Michael and Ryan Moran of Campbell County High School; Meghan Waters of Covington Latin; Megan Freeman, Abigail Hills, Ellen Lynne, Charles Pendery, Emma Ploucha and Rebecca Scott of Highlands; Brian Hogle and Nolan Johnson of Newport Central Catholic; Dana Youtsey of Notre Dame; Alicia Reinersman of Silver Grove; and Laura Sparks. A statewide selection committee chose the participants for the nationally recognized program from nominations submitted from each Kentucky school district. Selection criteria included academic records and test scores, teacher recommendations, extracurricular activities and

essays. The program is free to those who attend. Scholars spend Beshear five weeks on a college campus during the program, which this year was held at Morehead State University from June 20 to July 24, at Bellarmine University from June 21 to July 25, and at Centre College from June 28 to Aug. 1. Scholars balance a busy academic schedule in the sciences, mathematics, humanities and the arts with a variety of co-curricular activities and a rich residential life. They participated in community improvement projects, seminars and other activities often initiated by the students themselves.

Students can use personal laptops By Chris Mayhew

Campbell County High School is allowing students to use their own laptops to access the school’s wireless Internet and network for the first time. The only catch is that students must first have their laptops examined for software the school doesn’t want used on its network. “Basically, anything we don’t allow on the computers in the building can’t be allowed on theirs either,” said Juli Hale, director of community relations for the district. Using a laptop computer is part of daily life now for many students, and many of them will be

using them during college classes anyway, Hale said. “It’s helpful for our students to be able to work on their laptops if they have homework after school,” Hale said. To sign up for the program, a printable permission slip and usage terms is available at the high school’s Web site cchs/flashintro/indexhs.php. Students can use approved laptop computers before and after school, in the library and media center, and during lunch. Principal Renee Boots said teachers are also told that they can determine whether or not a laptop may be used in their classroom. Integrating computers into the

learning climate of the school helps ensure that students understand the reliability of certain Web sites and learn to sharpen the tool that technology is, Boots said. “We want them to learn how to access resources, know good search engines, etc.,” she said. “I’m thrilled that we have a way to welcome the technology and yet monitor its use in a positive way.” Students do use a laptop computer as a learning tool, and as a connection to college, Boots said. “Our job is to prepare them for their next steps in life,” she said. “We know that technology use is part of that next step, so let’s take the opportunity to guide them in it now.”


Players of the Campbell County High School freshman football team run laps around a practice field Thursday, Aug. 20 past a cardboard coyote cutout meant to scare geese away from the school’s practice fields.

High school fielding coyotes to scare geese By Chris Mayhew

Stuck in the athletic fields with running Campbell County Camel athletes are also a few coyotes. Campbell County High School has stuck life-size, wire-supported cardboard coyote photographs in athletic fields to scare away geese to avoid the mess of droppings the flocks leave behind. The fake coyotes are a way to keep the geese off the field, and the athletes from having to play and practice in those conditions, said Troy Styer, head football coach for the high school. “They would get on the field and it just makes it yucky,” Styer said. The geese still come near the fields, but they’re keeping their distance for now, he said. Maintenance workers for the district learned of the use of cardboard coyotes after speaking with officials at Northern Kentucky University about what they do to deter geese, said Sharon Alexander, director of facilities for the district. “We did have a tremendous problem with geese, especially up at the high school,” Alexander said.

The school had previously tried things like sprays and rubber snakes set out on buildings, but none of that seemed to work, she said. So, this summer the district purchased about a dozen cardboard coyotes, putting up several around the athletic fields behind the high school. “We went and purchased them for the field up there, and it magically took care of the problem,” Alexander said. Cardboard coyotes were also put on an athletic field behind Crossroads Elementary School in Cold Spring where the official mascot is also a coyote. The elementary school’s athletic field is the home of the district’s youth football league games. So far, there have been no geese infestations at the field behind the middle school where the high school football games are played, she said. Alexander said something had to be done to keep the geese off the fields, and it seems like a solution has been found. “The geese were creating a big mess, and those athletes get up there and roll around in it, and it just didn’t seem very healthy to me,” she said.

Often, these courses incorporate off-campus activities, including travel to destinations in the U.S. and abroad. This year’s May term travel courses had students studying nutrition in France and Spain, theater and music in New York City, forensic accounting and fraud examination in the Cayman Islands, politics and culture in Ireland, writing in Ireland and the ancient polis in Greece. The Introduction to the Fine Arts course traveled to

New York City where Kunkel was introduced to a survey of basic ideas, guiding principles and historical and contemporary practices in art, drama and music. The class visited various museums and theater productions in the city. Kunkel is a rising sophomore at the university. She is the daughter of Steve and Cynthia Kunkel of Alexandria. Tepe traveled with the Diet, Nutrition and Culture course to northern Spain and southern France to study the lifestyle, diet and culture of these two regions and compare them to an American lifestyle, diet and culture. The class visited the rural Basque region of northern Spain, metropolitan Barcelona and the renowned culinary area of Provence in southern France where they attended cooking classes and visited food markets in several areas and a chocolate factory near Barcelona. Tepe, a biology major, is a rising senior at the university. She is the daughter of Marc and Sharon Tepe of Fort Thomas. Transylvania, founded in 1780, is the nation’s sixteenth oldest institution of higher learning and is consistently ranked in national publications as one of the top liberal arts colleges in the country.

Where do our crises come from?

Everyone lives a drama. We try to be playwright and write the script to our lives. But it never works out that way. There are twists and turns both good and bad, unexpected surprises, disappointments and losses and challenging situations. And there are crises sprinkled throughout. Some of them can rock us to our toes. Where do our crises come from? I don’t accept the idea that God causes suffering and crises. In this imperfect world,

they come along like h u r r i canes, lightening strikes causing f o r e s t and Father Lou fires, volcanic Guntzelman eruptions. I agree Perspectives with the analysis of various crises expressed by author Sue Monk Kidd. She says that the crises of life come mainly from three sources: developmen-

tal transitions, intrusive events, and internal uprisings. Developmental transitions occur naturally in everyone’s life. We move from stage to stage though after awhile we hate the changing. Think of some of our changing stages: birth, beginning school, puberty, moving away from home, risking and forming relationships, choosing a career, entering the work force, and of course, marriage. Add to these raising children, dealing with midlife,

the empty nest, retiring, losing a loved person, etc. Each occurrence usually brings varying degrees of crisis. They cause turmoil and rattle our illusion of control. There is a tug toward growth but a stronger tug to stay where we are. Intrusive events are a second source of life crises. Too many to number, they include accidents, serious illness, a loved person’s death, natural catastrophes, a miscarriage, a terminated relationship, losing our job, a wayward child, dashed dreams, etc.

The best way to meet the crises of life is to admit them, name as specifically as we can the feelings we are experiencing, spend time in genuine reflection (seek competent help if necessary), and be painfully honest with ourselves. In short: feel, reflect, learn, and seek understanding which is the key. Though harsh on us, crises are also doorways. How we handle them changes us into bitter or better persons. The greatest factor affecting our lives for good or ill is the attitude we take in the face of things we cannot change. Internal uprisings are the third source of personal crises. Their coming is usually subtle and unspecified. We may begin to notice a vague sense of restlessness, emptiness, or a tinge of depression that hangs on. There may be spiritual doubts, insomnia, blossoming addictions, heightened anxiety, etc. We try to explain them by the terminology of today – stress, burnout, exhaustion. From where do these come? There is a life-force within us straining toward wholeness. What do we think pulls us through all the stages of growth and development in our lives? This life-force has its own ways of getting our attention when healthy development is stymied or stuck. Creating some sort of inner crises in us is its usual technique. Typically we only make significant changes when we hurt. Such crises are meant to

nudge us toward some doorway we need to pass through. The trouble is, we never think of a crisis in this way. We just pour another drink, get busy, or use our cell phone. A crises is always considered as something wrong, not something potentially helpful. Such thinking keeps us from looking for the new doorway. A crisis can be a holy summons to become more the person God made us to be. The best way to meet the crises of life is to admit them, name as specifically as we can the feelings we are experiencing, spend time in genuine reflection (seek competent help if necessary), and be painfully honest with ourselves.

Perfectly grilled salmon

The 70-30 rule applies to any seafood on the grill. Have the grill hot, lightly brush both sides of the fish with oil, and start grilling skin side up with the grill closed as much as possible. (Or just put a disposable pan over the fish). Leave it alone until about 70 percent of the fish is done on the first side. You’ll know it by the looks and also if it will release easily. This allows the fish to form a nice crust. Turn it and finish cooking. The rule seven to 10 minutes per inch of thickness works well, too. Here’s how I season mine: Brush four salmon fillets, about 6 ounces each, with skin (or not) on both sides with olive or other oil. Season both sides with salt and 1⠄4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (this is enough for all four) and the juice of a lime (about 2 tablespoons). Grill as indicated above.

What do you expect from the Bengals this year?

“If history repeats itself, not much.” J.H. “Not much, thanks.”


“Same old, same old! Need a running back, Carson will probably be out most of the year, no pass rush defense, etc. ... as long as MB controls the team the Bengals are going nowhere. I predict six wins and 10 losses.” Duke “More of the same!”


“If they could stay sober, keep off drugs, stay out of barroom brawls, and quit beating their wives and/or girlfriends, they might have a chance. If I had to pay taxes in Cincinnati, I’d be ticked off. They built a brand new stadium and got nothing in return. They could also use some management. Mr. Brown just doesn’t have what it takes. He will never be like his dad. G.M. “Nothing.”


“Well I just finished watching ‘Hard Knocks’ on HBO which is featuring the Bengals. HBO did a great job, I really enjoyed it and was enthused about the upcoming season until they showed the segment in which Mike Brown was sharing his ideas with the coaches: ‘How about if we move the defensive end to tight end.’ “Mike is still micro-managing and that is not encouraging.” B.M. “I expect them to waste our time and money as usual.” R.S.H. “I expect the usual from these guys; absolutely nothing ... and I have never been disappointed!” J.G. “What do I expect ... or what do I hope?!! :-) “Expect: sadly, another losing season. “Hope: undefeated, Superbowlbound.” J.K. “This is what I’d like to see: a team that plays to their skill potential, obeys the law off the field, does good work in the community and earns the loyalty and esteem of the fans. “Here’s what we will probably see: a team that seldom wins, players charged with crimes and no one caring about the community. I hope I’m very wrong.” E.E.C. “Time tells all and over the past few years the Bengals have

Just like every year.” J.B. “I can’t ever hope to recapture the intense interest and excitement I had when following Cincinnati’s professional football team that I had when I was younger. I guess that’s part of the price you pay for getting older. “But if our team can spark any interest to match the excitement that I felt back in 1982, when the Bengals met the SF 49ers in the Super Bowl (losing 21 to 26), I’ll be pleased. “I will never forget that game. I had been running for about two years, and did my four miles that morning, coming back with icicles hanging from my eyebrows under my hood! “And I will probably never again be so emotionally involved as I was when I went out on our front porch, after the game was lost to SF, and venting my rage at the open air! What a game that was!” B.B.

Setting politics aside for a quicker economic recovery A few years ago we never would have thought our local unemployment figures could exceed 10 percent, but thankfully a variety of indicators show portions of our national economy to be stabilizing. The issue now is whether we will have fewer jobs. A stable, but smaller, economy won’t offer relief to those who want to work. All of us are searching for answers. I believe in the end we will get it right. History suggests that economic policy on recovery has had little to do with party politics. Both parties have gotten it right and wrong. In 1932, in the midst of the Great Depression, at first Republican President Herbert Hoover did little or nothing. Later he supported the Emergency Relief and Construction Act to fund public works programs. He also supported the creation of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, which provided loans for government bailouts. To attempt to pay for these programs, President Hoover supported one of the largest tax increases in history and interest rates soared. The economy did not enter into a period of sustained growth until World War II in the 1940s. Republican President Hoover’s outcome can be contrasted with the approach undertaken by Republican President Ronald Reagan and Democratic Speaker Tip O’Neil. President Reagan took office with 12 percent inflation, interest rates at 16 percent, and high

unemployment. In relatively short order, President Reagan and a bipartisan coalition led the nation to its longest period of peace-time economic expanRobert D. sion. Hudson It began in the of 1983, Community spring just over a year Recorder after a Democratguest i c - c o n t r o l l e d columnist House of Representatives passed across-the-board tax cuts and shortly after interest rates began returning to reasonable levels. It might be said that Republican President Hoover’s approach to economic recovery lacked solid fundamentals. President Reagan and Speaker O’Neill appear to have gotten it right. There are questions about job recovery which are at the core of American dreams. They are about restoring retirement funds and home values. And there are some answers more Americans are confronting. We know that printing money and government borrowing causes interest rates to rise, which could crowd out growth. We know that increasing marginal tax rates in a recession, with new energy and health care taxes, can cause some businesses to think twice about rehiring workers. Because American manufacturers did not cause this recession, subjecting them to new regula-

Nationalizing additional segments of health care seems very unlikely to restore the value of houses and retirement funds. History will judge fondly the public servants who rise to the challenge and focus on restoring jobs. President Reagan and Speaker O’Neill, two political giants from different sides of the aisle, came together and did what needed to be done to help a country in crisis, representing all Americans. One of the most encouraging signs over the last year is that entrepreneurs and workers throughout our region have something to say. Their message has far more to do with this country’s history of job growth than it does partisan politics. But at the end of the day, they will help elect (or reelect) leaders who present the ideas which will help steer the economy toward true recovery. Robert D. Hudson is chairman of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. His term ends Sept. 1.

Heroin: Signs and symptoms In speaking with law enforcement personnel and as a result of my continued work with our Jailer, it is clear that the number of heroin users continues to climb. For those of you that I do not know, I worked for many years in the narcotics unit with the Kentucky State Police and I was the director of the Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force. During my tenure in those positions in the eighties and nineties we saw very little heroin. Starting in the early 2000's we began to see the influx of heroin into Northern Kentucky. Now it seems that heroin is almost as easy to get as marijuana and just about as prevalent. Considering the addictiveness, the personal damage and the societal damage inflicted by heroin, this is very scary and cause for great concern for parents and each of us individually. That we continue to see quite a few heroin related deaths in our area is further proof of the devastation of heroin. I spoke with one lady that works at a local emergency room and she explained that they regularly and routinely see heroin overdoses and other medical emergencies related to heroin use. I thought it may be helpful in this article to review some of the signs and symptoms of heroin use so that parents may be better able to recognize the problem when it arises. Heroin is a powerful, illegal and highly addictive drug made from the opium poppy. It is usually seen in the form of a white or brown powder, but also comes in the form of dark lumps or chunks called “black tar” or “mud.” It is usually sold in plastic bags or balloons. Heroin can be taken by

ingesting it, smoking it, sniffing it, or by mixing it with water and injecting it either directly into a vein (mainlining) or under the skin (skin popJames A. ping). Daley Some of the physical signs of Community heroin use are Recorder constricted or pinguest point pupils, dry columnist and cracked lips, persistent runny nose, loss of appetite and unexplained weight loss, pale or pasty complexion, constipation, dental problems, persistent body aches, red or raw nostrils from inhaling the heroin, cessation of menstruation in females, and constantly being thirsty. Some of the behavior signs associated with heroin are association with other heroin users who may be different than a child's normal circle of friends, sleepiness and nodding off, frequent and unexplained vomiting, slurred speech, use of laxatives to counteract the constipation, itching and scratching, needle or track marks on the arms which may lead to hiding the arms by constantly wearing long sleeves, missing money or stolen items from the house, frequent and secretive phone calls, finding heroin paraphernalia such as a syringe and/or a spoon with burn marks and finding receipts from a pawnshop where items were pawned to support the drug habit.

Long night ends in Mustangs’ first-ever win By James Weber

first-half touchdowns. The first TD occurred after Cam Dierig recovered a fumble at the Manual 23yard line. Highlands took a 19-0 lead after receiving the second-half kickoff and marching down the field. A 48yard pass from Will Bardo to Nick Buten set up a 3-yard run by Tyler Fennell. Highlands turned the ball over three times but came up with big defensive plays to keep Manual at bay.

The Bishop Brossart High School football team traveled more than 200 miles and did not get home until 4 a.m. Saturday morning, Aug. 22. They’ll get an extra week to recover from that after a 22-19 win at Betsy Layne in the Mustangs’ season opener. The Mustangs have a bye this weekend and host Bracken County 12 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 5 at Newport Stadium. It marked the first win in Brossart’s varsity history after an 0-20 start the first two years. Ironically, it was the same score posted last week by Brossart’s middle school team, which won its first-ever game against Sharp Middle School. “It feels great. It almost felt like it would never come,” BB head coach Matt Reinhart said. “Both teams were evenly matched; it came down to who wanted it more.” The kickoff was delayed for more than an hour because the emergency medical crew assigned to the game was tending to an auto accident. Brossart was the most ready to play after the delay. The Mustangs scored on their first drive with a 33-yard TD pass from Jesse Orth to Michael Whitford. Chris Bowman rushed in from 36 yards out to make it 14-0 in the first quarter. Betsy Layne, located in the mountains of eastern Kentucky, scored three unanswered touchdowns in the third quarter. The last came by returning a Brossart fumble as time expired in the first half. The Mustangs recovered from that adversity and shut out Betsy Layne in the second half. Bowman scored his second touchdown of the game early in the fourth quarter, and Colton Boesch intercepted a pass in the final minute to clinch the game for Brossart. Bowman had 136 yards on the ground. “He had a great game on defense as well - forced fumble, five tackles, unbelievable night,” Reinhart said. “He doesn’t come off the field. At the end of the game, he had nothing left.”

The Tigers venture to the other side of Interstate 471 to take on the Newport Wildcats for a 7 p.m. kickoff Saturday, Aug. 29. It will be Newport’s season opener. Bellevue has beaten Newport the past two seasons. The Tigers lost 36-20 at Holy Cross to open the 2009 season last week. The Tigers had little answer for a potent Indians’ offense led by senior quarterback Markel Walker, who is projected as a potential Division I college player at safety. Walker rushed for 107 yards and threw for 87 as he led the Indians on sustained scoring drives through the first three quarters. HC led 22-0 at halftime.

Highlands football looks to go 2-0 this season with a win against Ryle Aug. 28. The Bluebirds play at Ryle 7:30 p.m. Friday, the first of two meetings with the Raiders this year. Ryle posted a 34-14 win over Highlands’ Class 5A rival Covington Catholic last week. Highlands opened defense of its 5A state title by outlasting one of the top 6A teams in the state. The Bluebirds beat Dupont Manual 19-8 in Louisville to open the year. Highlands senior Austin Collinsworth rushed for 78 yards on 16 carries and two

In a matchup between two preseason top-10 teams, Dixie Heights held off Newport Central Catholic 19-7 in the season opener for both schools. The Colonels defense proved to be the difference, as Dixie Heights held the Thoroughbreds to 212 total yards of offense and one score. With the defense keeping the defending state runner-up in check and the offense taking care of the football, the Colonels were able to start the season off with a victory. Quarterback Ryan Wilson led the Colonels offense, which did not commit a turnover. Wilson rushed for 102 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries and completed 12 of 24 passes for 125 yards and a touchdown. Wilson found receiver Ben Haggerty on the Colonels’ opening drive. The offense put together two more drives deep into Thoroughbreds territory but failed to come away with points. Kicker Zach Bronner hit a field goal as time expired in the first half to extend the lead to 10-0. He hit another field goal late in the game to finish the scoring. Chris Kelly got NewCath on the board with a 19-yard touchdown run in the third quarter to cut the lead to three. Kelly finished with 96 yards on 22 carries. After the lead was cut to three, Wilson put the Colonels offense on his shoulders and carried them to another scoring drive which he capped himself with a 9-yard touchdown run. He led the Colonels to 310 yards of total offense. The win will likely move Dixie Heights, ranked No. 9 in the preseason coaches’ poll, ahead of preseason No. 7 NewCath.

Campbell County boys’ soccer strikes By James Weber

Soccer season is striking interest in Northern Kentucky. Here is a look at Campbell County boys’ teams:

Bishop Brossart

Brian Goller returns for his 16th season as head coach with a 168-116-9 record, including 8-9-1 last year. The Mustangs lost to rival Campbell County in overtime in the district tournament. Returning starters are Ryan Stadtmiller, Justin Morscher, Sam Perkins, Nick Hanneken, Ryan Enzweiler and Dylan Dierig. Brossart has five experienced seniors on defense.

Top newcomers are Jordan Frommeyer and Austin Kramer. “This year’s team has some of the most skilled players ever to put on a Mustang jersey,” Goller said. The Mustangs began the year 3-0 at the Harrison County tournament.

Campbell County

The Camels went 7-5-2 last season and were 19th District runner-up. Head coach Mark Hegyi said his top returning players are Colton Tanner, Brady Kennedy, Cody Alley, Alexx Bernard, Dane Michael and Jeff Pflum. The Camels were set to begin the season Aug. 25.


There’s only one way to improve from last year for the Bluebirds - become state champions. The Bluebirds were 17-4-4 and reached the state final for the first time in team history. Senior forward Dakota Beerman, a second-team all-state pick last year, had 19 goals and seven assists. Senior midfielder Jason Lewis had 12 goals and 10 assists and was honorable mention all-state. Senior forward Sam Thomason had 11 goals and six assists. Senior keeper Alex Etienne had 10 shutouts. Highlands began the season 3-1, with the lone loss to St. Xavier in a rematch of the 2008 state final.


Steve Bornhoffer enters his seventh season as head coach with six returning starters. They are Kris Guthier, Cole Little, Kevon Reis, T.J. Schowalter, Nick Speier, and Austin Juniet. A concern of Bornhoffer’s is replacing standout keeper Chris Grosser. Troy Kremer and Nathan Grosser will be asked to fill the void. The defense has a new structure and is led by Speier, Schowalter, Reis, Adam Meyer and Aaron Schultz. Guthier and Little lead the midfield, and Juniet and Andy Stegner up front. NCC began the year with a loss and a tie.

Campbell County girls’ soccer kicks into gear By James Weber

over as head coach for his wife, Nina. The Bluebirds did not submit additional information to the Recorder.

Girls’ soccer teams are kicking into gear this fall. Here is a look at Campbell County teams:


The Wildcats are 0-2 to start the year and host Dayton Aug. 29. They were 113-1 last year. The Wildcats did not submit information to the Recorder.


New head coach Brad Gough hopes to build a winning foundation and improve from last year’s 312-1 mark. Junior Danielle Swoper and senior Shelby Carelock are among the top players. The Tigers started the season by tying Ludlow, 22.

Newport Central Catholic

Bishop Brossart

Andy Deimling is thrilled to have nine returning starters from last year’s 135-1 team. The Mustangs have had five winning seasons in a row. Returning starters are Maria Silbersack, Emily Sanker, Gabe Enzweiler, Katie Walz, Julia Martin, Amy Tieferman, Emmy Wyatt, Andria Pitzer, and Kristen Erskine. Deimling said the team is a possession team with a lot of speed, and the most skilled he has had in his five years at Brossart.

Campbell County

The Camels finished 135-2 last season. Dave Morris enters his third season as head coach excited about his defense and overall talent. Anne Marie Dumaine, a two-time all-state selection, returns in the back row. She is one of five seniors on the team.


Notre Dame Academy senior Megan Berberich (15) and Bishop Brossart senior Paige Baynum battle for the ball during the Soccerama scrimmage. Amy Neltner, Kaitlin Bryan, Anna Carrigan, Carolynn Dreyer, and Lynsey Lapré are other returning starters. Top newcomers are Megan Rauch, Taylor Robinson, Julie Ampfer, Sarah Carroll, Chelsea Korsmoe, and Carmen Schneider.


Dayton returns eight starters in Alexis Crawford, C.C. Centers, Jaclyn Northcutt, Shelly Centers, Marla Nichols, April Kappes, Jennifer Ackerson, Nikita Williams.

Top newcomers are Rachael Ackerson, Brandlynn Asher, Christina Lella, Debra White, Rebecca White and Stacy Sams. The Greendevils have six seniors. First-year head coach Michelle Horton, who comes from a large soccer family, said the team’s top goal is to beat Bellevue. “But, beyond that, as a team we want to improve our soccer skills, be part of a team that supports each other, and especially have fun,” she said. “At the end of the season, we hope to have better team players

and better individuals, and have fun.”


The Bluebirds continued their elite status last year, making it to the state final before losing to Sacred Heart. They lost 11 seniors, most now playing in college soccer programs. Highlands is off to a 3-1 start. They list nine seniors in Bekah Towles, Cecily Dupont, Alex Feiertag, Abby Hills, Lindsey Steller, Becca Scott, Carlie Brogan, Natalie Gilb and Amanda Bausch. Tommy Kearns takes

Kevin Turnick returns for his 11th season leading the Thoroughbreds. NCC was 97-3 last season. NCC returns eight starters, including forwards Kim Neises and Olivia Huber; midfielders Kelsey Johnson, Morgan Dubuc and Aubrey Muench; defenders Monica Youtsey and Natalie Ludwig; and keeper Madison Freeman. Youtsey, Neises and Ludwig are seniors. Top newcomers are freshmen Courtney Hagedorn (defender) and Christina Siebert (midfielder). Turnick’s main concern is replacing two starting defenders, including Northern Kentucky defensive player of the year Janie Geisler. NCC returns three of its top four scorers from last year. Muench scored 12 goals, Neises 10 and Huber seven.

Rubber Duck Regatta

Marion Naron Hale of California, Ky is doing her part to help tackle the issue of hunger in her community. As part of the 15th annual Rubber Duck Regatta, Hale is volunteering on the event’s steering committee to help sell ducks for the Freestore Hale Foodbank’s largest fundraiser of the year. Hale is representing her company and a sponsor of this year’s Rubber Duck Regatta, S.C. Johnson & Son, A Family Company. She views her involvement on the committee as an opportunity to give back to the community in which she lives and does business. “I’ve enjoyed meeting others who are passionate about feeding the hungry and in some small way, it gives me a chance to show gratitude for the blessings with which my family is blessed.� The Rubber Duck Regatta, which nets more than $475,000 each year for the Freestore Foodbank and its 400 nonprofit member agencies, is the world’s largest and longest-running rubber duck race.

The owner of the first duck to cross the finish line will win a brand new 2010 Honda Insight and possibly $1 million, if their duck is the “Million Dollar Duck.� Individuals can buy ducks online at; by phone at 513929-DUCK (3825); and at all PNC Bank and National City locations and Kroger stores.
