Cold Spring partners with county By Chris Mayhew

COLD SPRING — Campbell County will provide building inspection and professional planning services for Cold Spring effective Sept. 1. Campbell County Fiscal Court unanimously approved a contract Aug. 15 to provide the professional building inspection and

Retirements created sheriff’s office void By Chris Mayhew

NEWPORT — With tax bills needing to be mailed, the sudden retirement of the top three people in the Campbell County Sheriff’s office effective Aug. 1 left holes county leaders scrambled to fill. Sheriff John Dunn, his office’s chief deputy, finance manger, and office manager all retired effective Aug. 1. A fifth person in the sheriff’s office, not in management, retired after Aug. 1. In addition to appointing David Fickenscher as interim sheriff Aug. 1, Campbell County Judge-executive Steve Pendery asked county fiscal director Jim Seibert to resign and take a job handling the sheriff’s finances. Seibert resigned from the fiscal court effective July 31 after 10 years in his post. The sheriff’s office collects taxes for all the taxing districts in the county, and Seibert was brought in for the interim “to see to it that things run smoothly,” Pendery said during the Aug. 15 fiscal court meeting after accepting Seibert’s resignation from the county. “The top of the heap” of the sheriff’s department all retired at once, Pendery said. “So, we decided it was a management imperative to delegate one of our folks in order to help out with the situation,” he said. Fickenscher said he chose not to hire a chief deputy so the new sheriff can choose their own person. The “vast” duties of the chief deputy have been divided

planning services to Cold Spring. The city had been contracting with the Northern Kentucky Area Planning Commission. Cold Spring Mayor Mark Stoeber said it was the right time to switch, and the city had a couple of issues concerning responsiveness of NKAPC service. With county offices in Newport, and the NKAPC office in Fort Mitchell, traveling to meet-

ings will be easier for people, Stoeber said. There is also a potential for more efficiency in costs and fees since the county doesn’t seek a profit on its fees, he said. “Given that we’re in a lull between building waves, we took a good look at services,” Stoeber said. Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine said the city

approached the county about utilizing the county’s planning and building inspection services. A recent agreement with Dayton created a similar relationship, Horine said. The county also handles some commercial building permits for Bellevue. Commissioner Ken Rechtin said he didn’t have an issue voting ‘yes’ for the Cold Spring contract, saying it was “the right thing to

do,” but prefaced his decision at the Aug. 15 meeting. “Why isn’t the City of Cold Spring joining us in a planning body?” Rechtin asked. Most Campbell County cities maintain their own planning and zoning commission and board of adjustments. The cities of Crestview, Melbourne, Silver Grove, See PLANNING, Page A2

Band host N.Ky. competition By Chris Mayhew

ALEXANDRIA — Every year Campbell County High School's Band of Pride gets to blow their horns, clarinets and flutes for the home crowd by hosting the Northern Kentucky Marching Band Festival. This year's 41st annual festival at Campbell County Middle School in Alexandria will begin at 12:15 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15. A total of 13 bands will compete. As the host, Campbell County will not compete, but will perform an exhibition concert. CCHS Band of Pride Director Nick Little said it will be the final year of the competition at the middle school. "We look forward to sending the stadium off in style," Little said. The band, along with the football team, will take to a new stadium next year that's under construction on the high school campus. This year's band show is "StarCrossed," and tells the story of Romeo and Juliet using only references to stars and night, he said. "Each piece of music is star related and ties in with the visual idea," Little said. The band is doing great this year, and grew again to more than 130 members, he said. "We are one of the five largest marching bands in Kentucky, and we look forward to the upcoming season," Little said. The band members are working hard and it looks to be one of the most successful seasons in a very long time, he said. Band boosters member and parent Barbara Loos of California said many parents travel

with the band to show their support, but it's nice to have the annual festival at home. Her daughter Jessica, a junior, plays the flute. "It is one of our biggest fundraisers and the winter indoor guard show," Loos said of the festival. "It's one of those things that we bring all the parent support together that we can possibly get." Parents spend nights making spirit crafts including decorated cowbells and noise shakers, Loos said. "It's great fun for the parents," she said. "I think the parents have more fun sometimes than anyone else." For the band members the competitive matches are work, Loos said. Competitions are the culmination of a summer of practices, and three practices a

week during the school year and playing at home football games, she said. The festival will include booths selling smoothies, funnel cakes, "marching tacos,” pretzels, hamburgers and hot dogs. Other booths will offer band spirit crafts, decals and items including people selling handmade jewelry, Pampered Chef and the Thirty-One line of purses, Loos said. The prime attraction will be the bands on the field with three of the 13 bands featuring more than 100 members, she said. Bands perform classic and contemporary pieces of music in their shows, Loos said. It's a visual as well as an audio display, she said. "The main thing is people love to see the band perform and all the music," Loos said.

EVENT DETAILS The 41st annual Northern Kentucky Marching Band Festival at Campbell County Middle School in Alexandria will begin with the preliminary competition at 12:15 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15. The preliminary awards will be at 4:15 p.m. Final competition begins at 7 p.m. Final awards will be at 10 p.m. The Kentucky Governor's Cup will be awarded to the grand champion band of the competition. Beechwood High School was the festival's 2011 grand champion and will be in the competition again. Admission is $8 for adults, and $5 for students and senior adults. Children younger than five get in for free. Parking for spectators will be at the north parking lot of the middle school off U.S. 27 and handicapped parking is available. People are advised to bring stadium seats and wear their school's colors for the festival.

Planning Continued from Page A1

Southgate and Woodlawn and all unincorporated areas of the county are represented by the Campbell County and Municipal Planning and Zoning Commission. Rechtin said the county is capable of handling planning and zoning for cities, and he doesn’t understand

the hesitancy to join in a joint countywide planning body. “In conversations with Cold Spring, they made it clear that they do want to continue to maintain their own local planning commission and their own local board of adjustment,” Horine said. The Cold Spring contract is a step in the direction of providing some consistency in the administration of zoning regulations

and building codes across the county, he said. “Perhaps over time they might see the benefit or the value of joining into the joint planning commission,” Horine said. “But I can tell you that today it is their desire to maintain, I guess, ‘control’ is sort of the keyword.” Rechtin said control still rests with a city council in a joint county planning and zoning commission, and he was trying to encourage

discussion . Campbell County Judge-executive Steve Pendery said he was glad Rechtin brought up the discussion. “In a better world, which we’re all working toward achieving, someday your vision would become a reality,” Pendery said. Stoeber said consolidation of services is a very important and broad conversation to have, but he found it “very odd timing” for Rechtin’s comments. “The city is in fact reaching out to partner with the county on this particular issue,” Stoeber said.

amongst the senior deputies for now, he said. Fickenscher said he and Seibert took over the office as tax season started. The sheriff’s office will send out 38,000 tax bills Nov. 1, he said. Fickenscher said he is considering the possibility of automating the office’s tax collections this year using a secure bank drop box to create some continuity for when the

new sheriff takes over . Dunn’s staff had the tax bills and collection “down to a science,” he said. “We’re doing this for the first time without the benefit of the last administration,” Fickenscher said. Seibert said he likes being in the finance manager position, and whether he remains in the job will be the decision of the new sheriff. “I’m hoping they see in me a valuable asset that can help them at least get started,” Seibert said. People from the Kenton County sheriff’s office and Campbell County Clerk Jack Snodgrass’ office have helped him understand the processes of the sheriff’s office, he said. “I just felt like I could just jump in and bring support that was much needed,” Seibert said.

Libraries team up for reading event By Stephanie Salmons

According to Fort Mitchell author Rick Robinson, the best way to think of his book “Writ of Mandamus” is to think of “Kentucky horses, Irish whiskey and Middle East conflict.” The book, which Robinson said is the continuing story of Richard Thompson, a fictional congressman from Northern Kentucky who finds himself in the middle of “intrigue and trouble,” is this year’s reading selection for the Northern Kentucky One Book One Community program. The library systems of

Boone, Kenton, Campbell and Grant counties are teaming up for the annual reading program. Committee chair Amy Foster, manager of the Boone County Public Library’s Scheben branch, said the program began in 2007 as an initiative to get everyone in the Northern Kentucky counties reading and talking about the same book. The desire to support a local author was one of the major reasons Robinson’s book was selected, she said. Foster said organizers liked that the book was written by a local author and set in Northern Kentucky but it also has “a po-

Other events planned In addition to the author events planned as part of the Northern Kentucky One Book One Community program, Becky Ryder, director of Keeneland Library, will speak in all four counties. Some scenes in the book take place at Keeneland in Lexington. “Keeneland: A Rich Heritage and History” will be held: » Sept. 29, 11 a.m., Grant County Public Library, Williamstown. » Oct. 2, 7 p.m., Campbell County Public Library, Carrico/Fort Thomas branch. » Oct. 9, 7 p.m., Kenton County Public Library, Erlanger branch. » Oct. 10, 7 p.m., Boone County Public Library, Scheben branch. Keeping with the political theme of the One Book One Community selection, residents can learn about some of Kentucky’s historical political figures. Local libraries will also host Chautauqua presentations. Henry Clay, portrayed by George McGee, will be a the Cold Spring branch of the Campbell County Public Library at 7 p.m. Sept. 10. Emilie Todd Helm, portrayed by Betsy Smith, will

be at the main branch of the Boone County Public Library in Burlington at 7 p.m. Sept. 21. Justice John Marshall Harlan, played by Edward Smith, will be at the Erlanger branch of the Kenton County Public Library at 7 p.m., Sept. 27. A number of book discussions are also planned through September and October around Northern Kentucky. Dates include: » Sept. 10, noon, Campbell County Public Library, Carrico/Fort Thomas branch. » Oct. 2, 7 p.m., Kenton County Public Library, William E. Durr branch. » Oct. 2, 7 p.m., Baker Hunt Art and Cultural Center, Covington. » Oct. 2, 7 p.m., Campbell County Public Library,

litical feel to it without having politics per se. It doesn’t take sides.” That ties into the fact it’s an election year, she said. “Plus the book will appeal to such a wide audience,” said Boone County Public Library’s public relation coordinator Becky Kempf. Foster agreed. “Men, women, young, old – we thought it had broad cross-appeal and sometimes that can be challenging to find a book that a majority of people will like because you have to appeal to a lot of demographics.” Even Robinson said the book has something for all

readers. “If you love politics, you’ll love my books,” he said. “If you hate politics, I kill politicians, so there’s something for everybody.” Robinson said he always weaves local spots into his books, “not only for the local flavor, but (because) we have so many good places to weave into stories.” According to Foster, one of the local settings, Chez Nora in Covington, is one of the library’s partners for the program and will cater author events planned in all four counties. Readers can meet Robinson at 7 p.m. Oct. 23 at the Grant County Public Library, Williamstown; Oct. 24 at the main branch of the

Boone County Public Library, Burlington; Oct. 25 at the Erlanger branch of the Kenton County Public Library and Oct. 26 at the Carrico/Fort Thomas branch of the Campbell County Public Library. “This is really, really exciting and a really neat experience not only for the reader, but the author as well,” Robinson said. Writers get to interact with a lot of readers when out on book tours. “To get to do it not only in your hometown, but in front of so many readers in successive nights is a really neat experience for the author and the readers,” he said. According to Kempf,

Addition will ease cafeteria crowds By Chris Mayhew

ALEXANDRIA — Campbell County High School is planning to open an expanded cafeteria in October to ease crowding of students at lunch. A wall of windows covered with paper and plastic sheeting separates the cafeteria addition under construction from the tables where students sit and eat now. Ehmet Hayes, Campbell County Schools’ architect, said during the Aug. 13 board meeting the cafeteria addition under construction is on schedule for completion before the end of October. Timing of students entering and leaving the existing cafeteria, in use since the school opened in 1995, is a highly scheduled choreography designed and implemented by Principal Renee Boots and the school’s staff. “We feed 1,520 students in one hour and 15 minutes,” Boots said. Students enter the cafeteria in nine ‘waves’ of between 150 to 165

students, Boots said. The ‘waves’ minimizes the time students have to stand in line, she said. Students have 20 minutes to eat. Students then have seven minutes of free time in the concession area to visit with friends and use the restrooms, Boots said. Some students use the seven minutes to buy dance or game tickets or join a club, she said. There will not be a new ‘wave’ system created this year once the cafeteria is completed because it is hard to make changes to the schedule mid-year, Boots said. “We anticipate getting familiar with the space this year, and doing some planning next summer for how to best use it,” she said. The new addition will be put to use immediately. “Instead, we will allow part of the area to be a privilege for seniors only, and another part will be an earned privilege for other students who show their ‘Camel Pride,’” Boots said. “This will definitely free up space with seniors out of the regular tables.”

Josie Meyer, a junior, of Alexandria, walks her lunch tray through a crowd of fellow students as paper-covered windows block the view of ongoing construction to expand the Campbell County High School cafeteria on the first day of classes of a new school year Wednesday, Aug. 15.

NEWPORT — Newport Independent Schools are calling out to the community in search of adults to volunteers at any of the district’s four schools. From dance chaperones to classroom helpers, there is a need at all the schools for parents and community members to help out. Donna Watts, the youth service center coordinator at Newport High School, said the need for volunteers spans throughout the district, but for the high school, the need is mainly for after-school and evening events. “We have a lot of events that we need help with throughout the school year,” Watts said. “We also need parents and alumni to join groups like the PTA and Boosters that support our students.” At the middle school, Watts said volunteers are needs for programs like the 21st Century Community Learning Center, where before and after school programming is available for students to help them academically, promote health and wellness and give students an opportunity to try new things. Molly Wesley-Chevalier, the family resource coordinator at Newport Primary School, said needs in the primary and other schools can be as simple as having volunteers to cut laminated items for teachers.

“A lot of our teachers just need help with manual tasks that take up a lot of time,” Wesley-Chevalier said. The schools are also looking for adult volunteers to come in and help with reading groups, lunch time and more. Wesley-Chevalier said the Big Brothers Big Sisters program is always looking for people to volunteer 45 minutes every week to be a lunch buddy for a student. “I believe that any time a student has a chance to build a relationship with someone who supports their education is great,” Wesley-Chevalier said. “You never know who the students will connect with, and those connections can really make a difference.” Wesley-Chevalier said adults who would like to volunteer for something that includes being alone with students, they must bring a photo ID to the district’s central office at 301 East Eighth St., and have a background check completed. For more information about the volunteer needs of each school or to sign up to volunteer call Donna Watts at Newport High School at 431-7111, Paul Baker at Newport Middle School at 292-0552, Beth Lange at Newport Intermediate School at 431-3007 or Molly WesleyChevalier at Newport Primary School at 431-6662.



Litmer advances sustainability Adopt-a-Highway Poster at Xavier University Contest under way Community Recorder

Jake Litmer, the son of John and Laurie Litmer of Cold Spring, has always had a passion for the environment and conservation. When he came to Xavier, he started as an English major. At the end of his first year, he heard about the new environmental science major. After switching majors, he became aware of the university’s sustainability committee, and internships available through the sustainability office. After being accepted as a sustainability intern, he was tasked by the sustainability coordinator

and the committee with a handful of assignments. He conducted research on alternative energy technologies, such as solar, wind, and geothermal, to give the University an idea of what it would take to implement some of these in the future. He estimated the amount of storm water runoff Xavier experiences, and looked at ways to solve the runoff problem. He also researched energy meters for the campus which would allow for better measures of energy usage. He also has begun work on a “Green Fair” for the spring, which will focus on energy saving for

homeowners, food and farms, and waste management. Xavier University will celebrate Sustainability Week Sept. 26-Oct. 8, with the theme “Silent Spring at 50: The Prophetic Vision of Rachel Carson.” The week will feature Sandra Steingraber and Kauilani Lee honoring and remembering Rachel Carson. Carson was a woman of passion, gentle spirit, and rigorous intellect whose painstaking research and concern for public safety raised consciousness about the dangers of pesticides. She is best known for her 1962 book, “Silent Spring.”

SPORTS Brossart golf builds off experience


Editor: Melanie Laughman,, 513-248-7573


By Adam Turer

ALEXANDRIA — This year should be a payoff for Bishop Brossart High School’s girls golf team. The Mustangs have been young each of the past two years, but now return an experienced varsity roster. With senior leadership and talented underclassmen, the Mustangs have flexed their muscle early this season. “The last couple of years, we’ve been building,” head coach Suzette Glaab said. “Finally, we have some experience this year.” The experience comes from senior leaders Lauren Seiter and Jenna Dawn. The Burkhart sisters — junior Brittany and sophomore Taylor — also bring experience to the team. The Mustangs started the season 4-1 in

their first five matches. They have also played in several tournaments. The early season tournament experience helped the Mustangs prepare for the 10th Region All “A” Classic. Brossart qualified for the State All “A” Classic for the third straight year, winning the 10th Region team tournament. “(The tournaments) were a good way to get the girls started,” Glaab said. “They really prepared us for the All ‘A’ tournament.” While it was their third straight year qualifying for the State All “A” Classic, this year’s performance in the regional tournament was different. “We strongly qualified at the region tournament,” said Glaab. “We will probably do the best a Brossart girls team has done at the state All ‘A’ in a while.” Consistently solid team scoring across

the board will give the Mustangs an edge over teams who have one very low scorer but less depth. Maddy Schneider and Catherine DeMoss have provided good balance and depth for Brossart so far this season. “We have five girls all shooting solid scores,” said Glaab. “As a team, we’re going to be able to compete.” The Mustangs have a match against Simon Kenton on Thursday, Sept. 6, then travel to Springfield, Ky., for the 2012 Touchstone Energy All “A” Classic, on Saturday, Sept. 8. Brossart’s boys team did not qualify for the State All “A” Classic, finishing second in the 10th Region. Jimmy Kelley qualified individually for the state tournament. It will be Kelley’s third straight appearance in the state All “A” Classic.

Camels rout Thoroughbreds By James Weber

CAMPBELL COUNTY — Here is a look at the third week of prep football in Campbell County:


The Tigers fell 52-16 to Gallatin County to drop to 2-1 on the season. Bellevue scored both of its touchdowns in the first quarter. Dylan Huff had a 57yard TD run and Tyler Ackerson threw a 45-yard TD pass to Cody Corman. Gallatin controlled the rest of the game, as Austin Chapman threw for 333 yards and five touchdowns. Bellevue plays at Henry County 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 7.

Campbell County/NCC

After being manhandled by Covington Catholic to the tune of 37-0 to open the season two weeks ago, the Campbell County football team had some early soul-searching to do. The Camels went right to work on that the next day and have not looked back on their way to straight wins. The latest was an impressive 42-16 win over county rival Newport Central Catholic Aug. 31 in Alexandria. Campbell is 2-1

following a 34-14 win at Milford the prior week. “It’s all about preparation,” said Camels senior quarterback Tyler Durham. “We’ve had two great weeks of practice on both offense and defense. We started a new trend today. We have to finish and believe every single game, and it showed tonight and last week when we beat two pretty good teams.” Durham rushed for 203 yards on 18 carries, scoring two touchdowns. He also threw for 167 yards and a TD as the Camels won their first game over the Thoroughbreds in the last three years. “The offensive line did great tonight,” Durham said. “They’re working their butts off. They lift weights, run; they do everything.” Campbell led 21-0 at halftime, then NewCath scored nine quick points in the middle of the third quarter. NewCath got a safety when the Camels botched a punt attempt, then got a touchdown right away when Josh Cain fired a long TD pass to Noah Freppon on NCC’s next play from scrimmage. Campbell came right back on a 65-yard TD run by Durham and pulled away. “That’s been our goal,” said Campbell head coach Stephen Lickert. “Last year, we let teams come back on us, we were just happy to be up. This year, our guys aren’t happy until they win the game. After they got the safety and the touchdown, we regrouped and we said ‘Let’s go answer.’” See FOOTBALL, Page A9

NKU Notes

» While earning All-America honors during her playing days at Northern Kentucky University, Liz (Holmes) Hart would get everyone’s attention with her thunderous attacks. Her powerful spikes resulted in 1,850 career kills, the most in Norse history. Now the head coach at NKU, Hart is helping the unbeaten Norse make a lot of early-season noise in their inaugural campaign as an NCAA Division I member. NKU improved to 7-0 Saturday by defeating Evansville, 26-24, 23-25, 2522, 26-24, in the Comfort Inn and Suites Invitational. Kelly Morrissey collected 18 kills and attacked at a .385 clip to spark the Norse. Morrissey also added 14 digs and four block assists to earn tournament most valuable player honors. During the two-day event, Morrissey collected 33 kills as NKU defeated host Morehead State, Alabama A&M and Evansville. Jenna Schreiver (45 assists) and Shelby Buschur (nine kills, four block assists) were also named to the all-tournament team. Gennie Galfano recorded nine kills and hit .474 against Evansville, which dropped to 2-4 this season. Follow James on Twitter @RecorderWeber



UC Clermont volleyball gets ready for postseason After a successful 2011 campaign during where the UC Clermont College volleyball team extended streaks for conference championships (eight) and trips to the U.S. Collegiate Athletic Association national championship tournament (six), the latest version of the Cougars is ready to begin a challenging new season. The Cougars, led by head coach Joe Harpring, lost several quality players to graduation after 2011, so finding top-level replacements was a priority for the coaching staff. During the off-season, the team added several talented individ-

uals for 2012. Success will depend on the team’s ability to blend this new raw material with the returning players to form a cohesive unit. Clermont will be led by two seniors this year. Middle hitter Rachel Hays (Amelia High School), a First-Team All-American and First-Team All-Conference selection, joins defensive specialist Rachel Ferguson (Norwood) to help the newcomers learn the ropes. Also returning are junior setter Becca Walton (Mercy) – Second-Team AllConference, junior rightside hitter Haley Weber

(Mariemont), sophomore defensive specialist Courtney Maier (Newport Central Catholic) and sophomore outside hitter Kaitlyn Miller (Sycamore) – Second-Team All-Conference and conference Freshman of the Year in 2011. Joining the squad are outside hitter Heather Rowland (Norwood), setter Alex Robb (Amelia), middle hitter Kiley Collins (Goshen), outside hitter Alex McPherson (Turpin) and setter/defensive specialist Ashley Gooch (Lumen Christi Catholic – Anchorage, Alaska). UC Clermont faces its usual slate of tough oppo-


nents and has added two NAIA schools, West Virginia Tech and Alice Lloyd College, to the schedule. The home portion of the schedule features many interesting events – including the UCC Volleyfest trimatch on Saturday, Sept. 8 and the annual Cougar Classic/Volley for a Cure benefit tri-match on Sunday, Sept. 16. UC Clermont opened the season at home Aug. 21 vs. Miami University-Middletown. Game time is 6 p.m. in the Student Activities Center. For more information visit: athletics.

Freedom refocus on championship chase By James Weber

FLORENCE — Sept. 8 will be a long time in the making for the Florence Freedom professional baseball team. That night will be the first Frontier League playoff game in the history of the Freedom’s home stadium on U.S. 42. That will be game three in a best-of-five series with the Gateway Grizzlies. Game four, if necessary, will follow on Sunday night. Both games will have a 6:05 p.m. first pitch. Games 1 and 2 are scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday, after Recorder print deadlines, in the St. Louis suburb of Sauget, Ill. Game 5 would be there Sept. 10. The Freedom earned their first league playoff berth in the team’s 10-year history, grabbing a wildcard spot after finishing second in the East Division with a franchise record 57 wins against 39 losses. Thirteen of those wins came in the final 14 games as the Freedom surged from behind to take a postseason spot. Entering the final week of the season, there were six teams within three games of each other for three playoff spots. After clinching a spot in the season’s penultimate game Sept. 1, the team celebrated with champagne in its clubhouse. “The month of August has been quite a ride,” Freedom field manager Fran Riordan said. “Since

Jake Zabonick had a 54yard TD reception from Durham. Stephen Meyers, Alex Howard, and Eli Mathews also had TD runs. Mitch Kramer had a key interception late in the first half to set up a touchdown. The Camels were 6A district champions last year albeit just 4-7 overall. They’re hoping to improve on both points this season and the Cov Cath loss could propel them to that. “It started the Saturday after,” Durham said. “We all sat down and had a heart to heart and we started believing in each other.” “We want to win the district again and we want everyone to know that last year wasn’t a fluke,” Lickert said. “(After the Cov Cath game), we just told them we’ll go back to the

Aug. 1, we’ve had our backs up against the wall the whole time and to play the way we have has been very fun.” Shortstop Junior Arrojo hit over .300 and was named the league’s postseason all-star at the position. He also led the team in stolen bases this year. Arrojo finished third in the league vote for most valuable player. “He’s been our best player this season,” Riordan said. “He’s been our rock, offensively and defensively. He’s been clutch and he’s been our offensive catalyst. I don’t want to think of where we would be without him.” Catcher Eddie Rodriguez, outfielder John Malloy, outfielder Drew Rundle and outfielder David Harris all had double digits in homers. The key for Florence

was staying strong after standout hitter Chris Curley was signed to the Chicago White Sox at midseason. Curley, a Beechwood High School product, had 10 home runs and 44 RBI at the halfway point when he left. “It was a huge adjustment,” Riordan said. “You can’t replace a guy like Curley. When you lose a talent like Curley, you have to have several guys step up, and they have. Guys have stepped up their game in the last month and we’ve been able to compete. That says a lot about them.” The Freedom were second in the league in runs scored at more than 5.5 per game. Florence was third in home runs hit and led the league in stolen bases, a first for the franchise. Riordan said an even bigger key down the stretch was improved

Cain threw for 238 yards and one TD for NewCath. Mac Franzen had seven catches for 144 yards. Dylan Hayes had 52 rushing yards and a score. Mason Myers had a fumble recovery. NCC dropped to 1-2 for the year. NCC is off this week and hosts Simon Kenton 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15.

starting pitching. Riordan switched to a four-man rotation around Aug. 1 and the quartet was lights-out in the season’s final weeks. Andres Caceres led the rotation for the year, with seven wins and a 3.90 ERA over 20 starts. Andy Clark, Brandon Mathes and Brad Allen are the starters. Clark has the most wins in franchise history. “We’ve got our starting rotation settled,” Riordan said. “They’ve given us a big boost. The first couple of months, our rotations was very inconsistent.” Should the Freedom prevail, they will be in the championship series with Traverse City (64-32) or

Southern Illinois (55-39). Florence would have homefield advantage over Southern Illinois. The team with home-field hosts Games 1 and 2 Sept. 12-13 and a potential Game 5 Sept. 18. The other team hosts Games 3 and 4 Sept. 15-16. Riordan, in his second year as Florence manager, has a lot of playoff experience in the Frontier League as both a player and a manager. While he has plenty of advice to give his young players this week, his main priority is not to change anything and have them keep playing the way they have been.

“I don’t have much to do as far as preparing these guys,” he said. “They’ve shown me what they’re capable of and they have confidence in themselves. They’re going to play all nine innings. My job is not to screw things up and let them play. I’m real proud of them.”

Fort Thomas native finishes Bike & Build trek Well, we made it. All 27 of us rolled on to the beach in Monterey screaming and hollering, smiling, and acting a little bit Jessie Modrall nutty. We immediately COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST dropped our COLUMNIST bikes and ran into the ocean. Since apparently the water was only about 60 degrees people looked at us like we were crazy, but we didn’t care. We biked to the Pacific, and I managed to ride every single inch, and even a few others when I got lost. I dipped my front tire into the Pacific Ocean with 4,199 miles on my odometer. The entire trip held scenery that often left me breathless. However, we were very fortunate to be able to visit, and stay in three national parks. In the Grand Canyon we were able to rise early enough from our tents to see the sunrise before tackling a hike on the Kaibab Trail. The next park we visited was Zion National Park, my favorite part of the trip. We were once again fortunate enough to camp, and wake up in the morning to see the stars still overhead, before starting the day off with a hike. Finally, we stayed in Yosemite. We used our day “off” there to go hiking, and I completed a 15-mile hike to the top of Cloud’s Rest which overlooks the more famous half dome. This summer taught me more than I anticipated. 1. How to change a flat tire, I had 45, the trip record. 2. People we met were often in awe of the fact that we raised money and stopped along the way to help build affordable housing. However, the love and thank-yous we received from all those for whom we built, as well as everyone who along the way housed us and fed us was more than ample “payback” than we could have ever expected. 3. You hear so many people now say they are losing faith in the good of humanity. Do not fear, for there are still good people out there. Two of my fellow teammates stopped every half-mile with me, for 12 miles,

because I was getting altitude sickness as we too quickly ascended a mountain. Parish members who took us to their homes, fed us, gave us real towels to use, beds to sleep in, and washing machines to use. When you’re on the road for 80 days it’s little things like a real towel, a soft place to sleep, or clean bike shorts to wear in the morning, that can really lift our spirits. And finally, the random strangers who helped us along the way. The best example of this was our ride to Baker. Calif., an 84-mile ride through Death Valley. The temperature reached 118 degrees that day and our trailer had a flat tire. As a result of this we were unable to have our normal lunch stop and refill our hydration packs. Our group resorted to flagging down passing vehicles and asking for any water/liquids and snacks or food they might have. About 10 miles outside of town my group of four was getting low on water, food, and mental stamina. The headwinds were strong and we were only riding about eight miles per hour. All of a sudden a mini-van passed us and pulled over. A woman hopped out as we stopped our bikes and offered us each an ice cold soft drink. She opened up the van doors and we graciously hopped inside to cool off in the air conditioning. She apologized for not having any water or Gatorade to give us, but said we were the last group of bikers they had seen and they were running into town to restock. Earlier in the day they had heard what had happened to our van and trailer and had spent the rest of the afternoon driving up and down the road, seeking out our riders and delivering water, Gatorade, soft drinks, and snacks. We learned that they had made two trips to town to restock their cooler. That drink, and reprieve from the heat gave the four of us exactly the boost we needed to make it to our host. On a day when so much could have gone wrong due to the extreme temperatures we were truly saved by all of the amazing people

along that road. 4. There were many days this summer when we would know we had a lot of climbing to do. Many a time I would look up and see a mountain and know that in a matter of miles or maybe days I would be ascending that. We never had a choice, the cue sheet told us where to go and that was the route we were taking, even if it was up. Our only solution was to take a deep breath, downshift and pedal on. Facing fears in life shouldn’t be tackled any differently. 5. More than once this summer we got lost. More than once our cue sheet told us to go the totally wrong direction. More than once there was only creamy peanut butter at lunch, when I wanted crunchy. But, every day I was one step closer to having biked across the country, and that’s what really mattered. At the end of every day none of those things seemed important. Sometimes all you could do was laugh and know we would even-

tually figure it out. So no need to sweat the small stuff in real life. It’ll all work out. 6. So many cars this summer drove by and gave us a friendly honk, wave, or fist pump. It never failed to put a smile on my face, and more than made up for the occasional rude driver. But some days that wave or honk is the only thing that kept me on my bike, when I thought I might be too tired to go on, or thought I was nuts for thinking I could bike across the country. A hot breakfast or even just coffee in the morning means more than a thank you could ever convey to any of our hosts. It’s such a relief to know you have a roof to sleep under, a shower to use and dinner to eat. So “pay it forward.” If it wasn’t for all the people we met along the way this summer willing to host us and feed us this trip would not have been possible. Their action enabled us to do something even bigger, by building affordable housing. But even just walking

down the street with a smile on your face, or holding the door for the person behind you might mean more than you know to someone around you. Some days I don’t feel as though I pedaled across the country. I simply woke up each morning and completed the required number of miles for the day. Add all those days together and I reached the Pacific. So I now have no doubt that a series of small repeated actions can lead to great success. Our route raised more than $143,000 for the affordable housing cause. Thank you to everyone who contributed to my efforts this summer; financially or in thoughts and prayers. It meant a lot to my family and I. I can honestly say that this summer has forever changed me, for the better, and I would do it all again in a heartbeat.

Children Inc. hosts Celebration of Service

It’s about more than picking up litter along a road. More than reading a book to a visually impaired youngster. It’s also about more than the learning that goes on in the classroom. It’s about brochures and bracelets; backpacks and healthy snacks; nurturing through knowledge. The Mayerson Service Learning Initiative at Children Inc. has been making service learning possible in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati for more than eight years, and the movement is growing steadily. During the last school year alone, the service learning program at Children Inc. engaged more than 24,000 students to complete nearly 500 projects in approximately 80 area schools. Service learning applies lessons learned in schools to civic engagement opportunities. Using the IPARD (investigation, preparation, action, reflection, demonstration/celebration) model, students identify a need, often within the community, that is associated with the material

they are learning. Following the model and guided by a teacher trained in service learning by Children Inc., Tess Hammons students collaborate and share COMMUNITY ideas, strateRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST gies and responsibilities. For example, one first-grade class at Sixth District Elementary School in Covington engaged in an impressive – and prescient, given this year’s record-breaking temperatures – service learning project around their study of sun safety. After researching the harmful effects of UV rays, these children designed and created informative brochures that they distributed to the other grades at their schools. In addition, the first-graders made, marketed and sold UVsensitive bracelets (the beads change colors when exposed to UV rays) for 50 cents apiece to

raise more than $700 for Shriners Hospital for Children – and the bracelets keep selling. This is just one example of the hundreds of service learning projects that Children Inc. supported this past school year. Children Inc. will celebrate another successful year of service learning at the second annual Celebration of Service on Sept. 13 from 4:30 to 6:15 p.m. at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center in Covington. All are welcome to this event celebrating principals, teachers, liaisons, school administrators, foundation officers and community leaders who believe all children are great because all children can serve. UGIVE and LAUNCHCincinnati will attend the event to speak with schools regarding their programs. Children Inc. Service Learning coordinators will also be available to speak with schools on enhancing classroom learning through civic engagement. Every guest will be given a directory of local nonprofit

We used to pick grapes from a local vineyard. After making grape juice and jelly, I always had enough left over to make these, which were a favorite of my boys.

Health tips from Rita’s kitchen

Fresh pineapple helps keeps bones strong. Pineapple also improves digestion and even helps relieve cold symptoms with its high vitamin C content. Pineapple juice is soothing to a sore throat. Grapes, especially if they’re red, contain powerful anti-oxidants.

Tips from Rita’s kitchen


Bellevue to host Art in the Park

they are huge sources of Omega 3 fatty acids, which are good for your heart, brain, eyes, nails, skin and hair. Chia is close to flax in Omega 3 and higher in Omega 3 than hemp seeds (yes, they’re edible and I use them a lot). Light brown sugar can be substituted. Use all vanilla extract: 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon


You can add chia or flax seeds to up the Omega 3 content of Rita’s chunky granola. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

Here are some recipes to make ahead of time for healthy snacking. Check out tips for packing safe lunches, as well on my blog CookRita ing with Heikenfeld Rita at RITA’S KITCHEN I have to chuckle when I give advice on how to pack safe lunches since all during our school years, we packed lunches without ice packs or thermoses and, yes, used paper bags to tote them. Mom used to pack us fried kibbi sandwiches, and they smelled so good that all the kids wanted to know what they were. I was embarrassed to say what they really were so I would tell them they were Lebanese hamburgers. Today a sandwich like that would be considered very cool! We never got sick either, but as I always say, now that we’re more aware of food spoilage, better safe than sorry.

What’s bugging your tomatoes? Question: Several of my ripe, red tomatoes have small, light yellow patches that are corky under the skin. Sometimes, there are tiny yellow dots in one light-colored patch on the otherwise red tomato. Is this a disease or due to drought or bugs?

Stink bugs usually first appear around the edges of your garden, or in border rows nearest woody vegetation. The brown stink bug is the most damaging of

Answer: Actually, your last guess is correct. The damage is caused by a true “bug,” known as a stink bug. This is one of the more difficult to control insects in tomatoes. Stink bugs use their piercing-sucking mouthparts to feed on unripe and ripening fruit. This causes whitish-yellow corky spots underneath the skin of the fruit. The damage becomes noticeable only after the fruit begins to ripen, which may be several weeks after the feeding occurred. The adult and nymph stages of stink bugs also pierce vegetable stalks,

several species of stink bugs that feed on tomato. Stink bugs have a distinctive shield shape, are about 1/2-inch long when full grown, and produce an odor when handled. Adults are dark brown on top and yellow to tan underneath. Green stink bugs may also be seen in the garden. The immature stages, called nymphs, resemble adults but are smaller and lack wings. Stink bugs overwinter as adults in sheltered areas and crop residue. They become active again in early spring with adults usually laying about 100 barrel-shaped eggs in groups of about 25 to 70. Eggs hatch in about a week, and the resulting nymphs become adults in five to six weeks. Adult stink bugs migrate from weedy areas into tomato


patches, particularly when other plants begin to decline. Management of stink bugs needs to begin early in the season before tomatoes begin to fruit. Stink bugs come from weeds surrounding the garden, so regular mowing or removal of weeds in and around the garden is essential. Allowing weeds to go to seed may encourage stink bugs to move to tomatoes. Stink bugs readily drop to the ground when disturbed and may be difficult to see. Home gardeners may use Cyfluthrin (MultiInsect Killer) or Bug-BGon (Esfenvalerate) to stop stinkbugs. Sevin (Carbaryl) may also be used to control these pests on tomatoes, beans, beets, asparagus, cabbage, corn, eggplant, okra and squash.

NKU host third season of Six@Six lecture series Community Recorder HIGHLAND HEIGHTS —

The third season of the Northern Kentucky University Six@Six Lecture Series will open this fall with an examination of President Abraham Lincoln’s legal reasoning in shaping the Emancipation Proclamation and end next spring with a look into the life of political master Machiavelli. In between, speakers will talk about atoms, news photography, the dangerous combination of energy drinks and alcohol, and the mysteries of forensic science. Six@Six is a community lecture series sponsored by the Northern Kentucky University Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement and hosted by three of the region’s finest arts and culture institutions: The Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center, Behringer-Crawford Museum and the Mercantile Library. “NKU is a huge asset to Northern Kentucky and has been a valued partner to the Carnegie and friend to the community for years,” said Katie Brass, the Carnegie’s executive director. “Being a part of the community is very important to the university and with Six@Six, NKU is able to get its talented professors off campus and impact the lives of more than just the students. I am thrilled to be a part of NKU's Six@Six lecture series, and as long as it continues it will have a home at the Carnegie." Five of the six lectures will be held off-campus and feature NKU professors talking on topics from their respective fields of expertise. The sixth lecture will feature Santiago Lyon, vice president and director of photography of the international news service, The Associated Press. Lyon is responsible for the AP's global photo report and the hundreds of photographers and photo editors worldwide who produce it. He has 28 years of experience in news service photography and has won multiple photojournalism awards for his coverage of conflicts around the globe. Lyon’s lecture will be held in NKU’s state-of-the-art George and Ellen Rieveschl Digitorium in Griffin Hall. Each of the six lectures will begin at 6 p.m. and end at 7:30 p.m., allowing time for questions and interaction with the speaker at the end of each session. The cost of each lecture is $6 and season passes can be purchased for $30. Students (high school or college) can attend for free. Tickets can be purchased online at http:// org/532831896?s=1936081, by telephone at 859-5721448 or at the door. But subscriptions must be purchased prior to the start of the first lecture on Sept. 19. Although students get in free, it is advisable to make a reservation online as seating is limited. Additional information is available at or by calling 859-572-1448 or emailing The 2012-13 line-up Forever Free: The Constitutionality of the Emancipation Proclamation Sept. 19, Mercantile Library

John Bickers, professor, NKU Chase College of Law More than 147 years after his death, Abraham Lincoln remains one of the most admired Americans in history largely due to the Emancipation Proclamation. Torn between law and morality, he had previously told the nation that only a constitutional amendment could end slavery. So where did Lincoln find the authority to issue a document his critics declared profoundly unconstitutional? Chase College of Law Professor John Bickers answers the question: Was Lincoln loyal to the Constitution in ending slavery, or did he assume presidential powers the Founding Fathers never intended? Photojournalism: Then and Now Nov. 15, George and Ellen Rieveschl Digitorium, NKU's Griffin Hall Santiago Lyon, vice president and director of photography, The Associated Press If it happened, the Associated Press was there – often with a camera. Santiago Lyon will narrate an illustrated history of wire service photography, which brought the world to our doorsteps with iconic images. The story of AP photography is also the story of applied use of technology. In the 1930s, phone lines replaced rail and air transport as a means of delivering photos from the field to the newsroom, compressing hours into minutes. Fur-

ther technological advances would make it possible to send more photos faster and in color. Today, digital delivery is instantaneous, and a shift to video is changing what it means to be an AP photographer. Energy Cocktails: What are the risks? Dec. 4, Behringer-Crawford Museum Dr. Cecile Marczinski, professor, NKU Department of Psychology Consumption of energy drinks combined with alcohol has risen dramatically in the past decade, especially among college-age drinkers. What's the truth about the risks? Dr. Cecile Marczinski, assistant professor of psychology, has become a go-to expert for the national media on this topic. According to her findings, the risks are real. "Consumption of an energy drink combined with alcohol sets up a risky scenario for the drinker due to this enhanced feeling of stimulation and high impulsivity levels," she told Science Daily in an article last year.

most rigid of solid objects are comprised of atoms that are in constant motion. Accompanied by animations, Dr. Matthew Zacate, associate professor of physics, will guide you through the effects and properties of the ever-wobbling atom and the influences of atomic vibrations on innovative technology. Forensic Science in the Real World: Fact versus Fiction March 21, 2013, Behringer-Crawford Museum Jill Shelley, professor, NKU Department of Political Science and Criminal Justice TV police dramas put a spotlight on forensic science. But have you ever wondered if DNA, carpet fibers and insect eggs actually pack the crime-solving punch they appear to have in NCIS and Law and Order? Professor Jill Shelley will peel away the myths and show you how forensic science works in real life, at real crime scenes and in real crime labs. She sorts through the controversy surrounding current techniques. You'll learn how the field has evolved and discover how forensic science has aided in the solving of recent investigations.

New Insights into the Life and Times of Niccolò Machiavelli April 13, 2013, Mercantile Library of Cincinnati Dr. William Landon, professor, NKU Department of History and Geography By most measures, Machiavelli's life was a success. In his day, he achieved literary fame and gained the respect and patronage of the powerful Medici family. After his death, history elevated his name to be synonymous with political expediency and pragmatism. However, a younger, wealthier Florentine nobleman, Lorenzo di Filippo Strozzi, whose contributions to Renaissance Florence have gone almost completely unno-

ticed, aided in, and perhaps even organized, many of Machiavelli's achievements. With Dr. William Landon, assistant professor of history, as your guide, explore this lesserknown, dark side to Machiavelli's biography.

Want to can zucchini bread? Think again Q. I have a friend who told me about canning zucchini bread to store on the shelf. I’m wondering how to do it and if it is safe. A. This is not a recommended method for baking and keeping quick breads or cakes. While the items are baked in a canning jar, the product is not really homecanned. Generally, directions found for this product tell you to bake the bread in a canning jar and after taking it from the oven, put the canning lid and ring on the jar. The lid will “seal.” Even though the lid seals, it is probably not a high quality, long-lasting seal. Even though the jar seals, most cake and quick bread recipes have the potential for supporting the growth of hazardous bacteria including Clostridium botulinum. This bacteria causes botulism, an often fatal foodborne illness. Research done at Kansas State University showed heat-stable microorganisms can survive the baking process and multiply in breads during storage. Some microorganisms

thrive in anaerobic conditions (those without oxygen). Bacteria may thrive on the food Diane product, Mason the moisEXTENSION ture from NOTES the product, the neutral pH, the ideal room temperature, and the storage time. Breads and cakes in sealed glass canning jars made by commercial companies cannot be replicated at home. Commercial producers have access to additives and products the typical home consumer does not. Most canning jar manufacturers do not recommend using their baking products in their jars. If you want to keep quick breads and cakes for extended periods of time, plan to freeze them. Or, freeze some of the ingredients and bake fresh products throughout the year. Diane Mason is county extension agent for family and consumer sciences at the Boone County Cooperative Extension Service.
