Lake chemical killed golf greens By Chris Mayhew

ALEXANDRIA — Campbell County has identified the chemical responsible for killing the greens at A.J. Jolly Golf Course. The county-run golf course was shut down early for the season Aug. 13 after the greens on all 18 holes were damaged. Flouridone, a chemical normally only used around and in the lake at A.J Jolly Park, killed the

greens, said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine. The chemical is an herbicide used to weeds or algae that grow in ponds, Horine said. “It is a mystery to us that we have not been able to solve as to how flouridone was found to be on the greens,” he said. Initial testing of soil and grass samples from the greens found nothing, and further test results received around Aug. 28 found the presence of flouridone, he

said. The chemical basically bleaches plant material and causes it to turn white and stop growing, Horine said. That’s exactly what happened to the greens, he said. “It’s not anything we use on the greens, fairways or tees,” Horine said. “The bottom line is we have no idea how this product was found to be present on the greens.” The courses’ greens superintendent has been at A.J. Jolly for 23 years and has never had any-

thing like this happen before, Horine said. Grass has already been replanted on the greens, he said. “We have grass growing on the greens right now, and we're making good progress toward the restoration of the greens, and fully expect we'll back in full operation early next year, but the work continues, Horine said. The cost of the fixing the damage, and the fiscal impact of the course being closed early this

year is still being assessed, he said. Each year the county provides additional support for the golf course out of the county budget. The 2012 budget included $155,000 of program support for the golf course. “We will probably increase that program support number,” Horine said.

NCC student receives diploma 70 years later By Amanda Joering

Richard Roy Heck of Cold Spring in now officially a graduate of Newport Central Catholic High School. Heck, 88, recently received his diploma dated back to May 25, 1942, the day he would have graduated. “This is just something I’ve always wanted to do,” Heck said. Heck, who grew up on his family’s farm off Dodsworth Lane in Cold Spring, became a freshman at the school in 1938. During his sophomore year, Heck said his father became terminally ill and his mother asked him to quit school to help on the farm and get a job to support the family. Shortly after leaving to school to help his family, World War II began. He was drafted the United States Navy to fight in the war in June of 1943, causing him to leave his family and the love of his life, Glorianna, Heck said. After serving for two years on the USS Baltimore, where he earned several Bronze Battle Stars, Heck was discharged in December 1945. “The day I got home, I stopped at the Newport Jewelry Store and picked up an engagement ring for my wife, who, might I add, I have been married to for 66 years,” Heck said. While he couldn’t be happier with the blessed life he’s had with his wife, children, grandchildren and now great-grand-

children, Heck said he always regretted not having received his high school diploma. Recently, Heck heard about a government program where veterans with circumstances like his could graduate from high school as long as the school approved. After mentioning it to his family, Heck said two of his grandsons went to meet with NCC Principal Carl Foster, who not only agreed to give Heck a diploma, but also recognized Heck at a school assembly, which many of his family members attended. “I really appreciated the fine reception they gave me at the school when they presented me with my diploma,” Heck said. “I don’t think I’ve ever had my picture taken so many times. I started to feel like a celebrity.”

Wetland workshop a big dig

By Chris Mayhew

MELBOURNE — Recreating a wetland in Melbourne started with a backhoe digging deep into history Friday, Sept. 7. Participants in a wetland restoration workshop were taught

the basic needs of creating a level that won’t drain by U.S. Forest Service Wildlife Biologist Tom Biebighauser. The workshop was located on the property of the St. Anne Wetland in Melbourne. Biebighauser said the land, less than one acre, being restored into a wetland was turned into

said. Tile drains have been in use by farmers since about 1820, and many people don’t know the precise history of exactly what their great-grandfathers did even if the family has lived on a piece of land for years, Biebighauser said. “We don’t know if there are drain tiles in the ground today, but we’re going to look,” he said. Looking required a backhoe digging a trench more than six-feet deep. All drainage systems have to be removed or contained in order to re-establish the wetland, Biebighauser said. The recreated wetland will vary in depth between 10 inches and 18 inches. “The wetlands will help many species of wildlife,

wood ducks, dragon flies, turtles, salamanders, frogs, mink, muskrats, raccoon, all these different wildlife species,” he said. Participants in the workshop are learning how to bring back the environment by bringing back a wetland, Biebighauser said. “We are using techniques that have proven highly effective in restoring wetlands in many parts of the country especially here in Kentucky,” he said. Crystal Courtney, an urban forester for the City of Covington, also attended the class. Courtney said she has helped work on the Licking River Greenway and Trails project in Covington.

wetlands because Covington is using “green infrastructure” to attract people to the city. Monfort Heights, Ohio native Mark D. Barnes, a professor of natural resources for Chinese Culture University in Taiwan, said he was impressed with Biebighauser’s work and wanted a preview of how a wetland workshop is set up and operates. Barnes visited Biebighauser in 2011and agreed to conduct a workshop in Taiwan. “He showed me around Daniel Boone National Forest and some of the constructed and restored wetlands they had down there,” Barnes said. “And I thought in Taiwan we’re just on the cusp of starting to do stuff like that.” Alexandria resident and City of Melbourne engineer Rick Carr said the workshop was a good opportunity to see what conservation work is happening at the St. Anne Wetland. It’s also a good way to learn about water drainage issues, Carr said. Melbourne is planning to eventually repave Anderson Avenue, which leads to the wetlands, he said. “We don’t want to impact it negatively with a new road when they redo Anderson,” Carr said.

exandria questioned county officials about the cost of the golf course damage. Ken Moellman Sr., of California, said he wanted to know an estimated cost of the repairs of the greens. Moellman also asked if anyone has been disciplined. Campbell County Judge-executive Steve Pendery said the repairs are not complete yet. “The details are not ready to be told just yet because it’s not over,” Pendery said. There is still not any good evidence of how the chemical reached the greens, so there is nobody to discipline, he said. Horine said the greens are 50 years old and were originally built by the county road department. The fiscal court did decide not to reconstruct the greens, he said. “We’re doing the most cost-effective thing which is simply reseeding the existing greens,” Horine said.

The service transitioned out of TANK in July. A Freedom Grant has allowed Senior Services of Northern Kentucky to provide the rides, she said. “They have asked their clients to contact Senior Services (of Northern Kentucky) and have them get their transportation through us now,” she said. To start the process of getting rides, residents can contact the office, she said.

Petunia the pig finds a home By Chris Mayhew

MELBOURNE — The tale of Petunia the pot-bellied pig’s rescue will end with the animal’s adoption by Happy Tails, an animal sanctuary near Akron, Ohio. “We have a happy ending,” said Campbell County Animal Shelter Director Lisa Bowman.

Petunia, who weighs in around 200 pounds, has been staying at the county’s animal shelter in Melbourne since the pig was found wandering on Hissem Road in California July 17. Campbell County Police Department officer Nick Heiert brought the pig in his car to the animal shelter. Since Petunia’s rescue, a Facebook fan page was created, and the news

about a need for a home went “viral,” Bowman said. The shelter staff named the pig Petunia, and Bowman has been feeding the pig and letting it stay at the shelter which primarily houses dogs, cats and other pets. Transport is being arranged, and it is expected Petunia will be at her new home within the next week,

Bowman said Aug. 23. Bowman said she couldn’t be happier that Petunia found a permanent home. “She’s going to live out the rest of her life in an animal sanctuary,” she said. For more information about Petunia’s stay at the animal shelter in Campbell County Recorder visit the website

Company drives in pink for cause


Peak Heating and Air owners Chuck Pfaehler are keeping the message of breast cancer awareness rolling with a new pink van. Pfaehler, who owns the company with his wife Ronnie, said he wants people to understand breast cancer strikes men as well as women. Founded by Chuck in 2000, Peak Heating & Air has offices in Highland Heights and Cincinnati. The company debuted a new pink van promoting breast cancer awareness in the Alexandria Fair & Horse Show parade Wednesday, Aug. 29. Peak Heating & Air’s seven employees all also have pink shirts they can wear on the job. Pfaehler said he takes the message accompanying the color pink to heart. “Guys, it is just not limited to women,” Pfaehler said. “If they’ve got a lump or something they’ve got to get it checked out, and

it’s just as serious.” A portion of the revenue generated by people asking for the pink van for service calls will be donated to breast cancer awareness groups, he said. Everyone knows someone who has been impacted by cancer, Pfaehler said. If the response justifies it, more Peak Heating & Air vans will become pink, he said. The more service calls the company makes, the more it can donate to charity, Pfaehler said. Money raised will be donated to groups including Chicks & Chucks, a local organization dedicated to providing resources to breast cancer patients, said general manager Randy Englert. Englert said the fair parade launched the business’ breast cancer awareness campaign. “It obviously brings a lot of attention to our company, but it supports a great cause,” he said. The company performs work on geothermal and

heating and air conditioning systems, Englert said. Stressing carbon monoxide awareness is important for the company, especially this time of year to avoid deaths, he said. Carbon monoxide detectors and yearly service on residential and commercial heating and air units are preventative measures the company recommends, he said. The company has been working on a 5-7 year business plan focused around the value of quality workmanship, Englert said. “Part of that plan involves giving back to the community that we serve,” he said.

Southgate school offers new tip line

New iNKU apps for Android, iPhone Community Recorder

By Amanda Joering


SOUTHGATE — Southgate Independent School is taking steps to address issues like bullying and vandalism at the school. At the start of this school year, Southgate opened an anonymous tip line, where students, parents and community members can call and leave tips for school administrators about inappropriate behaviors and actions. Superintendent Jim Palm said the idea for the hotline came up during a conversation he had with the school’s principal. “This is a concern we all have, bullying of students and acts of vandalism,” Palm said. “As administrators it is our job to take care of these issues.” Using the hotline, anyone can call and leaves tips for the administrators, which Palm said he hopes will allow them to investigate and resolve issues. The hotline is anonymous, so callers do not have to leave their names and other identifying information. “Our biggest concern is the bullying, which is something we will not tolerate in Southgate,” Palm said. “This hotline gives people an outlet to give information without being known.” In a small school like Southgate, where everybody knows everybody, it was hard in the past for people, especially students, to come forward with information about issues like bullying because they were afraid other students would know who told on them, Palm said. Parent Sharyl Iden, who is also the school’s nurse, said she thinks the hotline is a great idea. “I think the hotline allows students to feel safer about reporting things they may not have felt safe reporting before,” Iden said. “A lot of students just aren’t comfortable talking about these things in person.” The hotline can be accessed by calling the school’s main number, 441-0743, outside of school hours and entering the extension 151 once the recording begins.

Veterans go on spiritual journey Community Recorder Nate Davis, director of veterans affairs at Xavier University, accompanied five local veterans, three of whom are Xavier students, on a spiritual journey to Assisi and Rome. They left the U.S. on Aug. 13 and returned Aug. 21. Local military personnel who took the trip include Paula Alberto of Fort Wright and Marylu Gilbert of Fort Thomas. The pilgrimage is part of a new, veterans-only theology course developed through collaboration among Sister Rosie Miller, professor of theology, Davis and pilgrimage staff in Italy. Miller suggested the pilgrimage because she is familiar with issues such as post traumatic stress disorder. Xavier is the first Jesuit institution of higher learning to develop a veterans-only theology course, and the first Jesuit institution to send a group of veterans on a pilgrimage.

Students chat with space engineer

By Chris Mayhew

GRANTS LICK — As NASA engineers send commands to the Mars rover “Curiosity” across the expanse of space, Grants Lick Elementary School secondgraders talked via a live audiovideo feed with a space engineer Aug. 30. Students from three classes at Grants Lick spoke via Skype with Eric T. Baumgartner, dean of the college of engineering at Ohio Northern University. Baumgartner helped design the robotic arm in use on NASA’s Mars rover “Curiosity,” which landed on the planet successfully Aug. 6. Students from teachers Michele Augsback, Sara Pershing and Darcy Albers’ classes participated. The Skype session was coordinated with the classes’ reading of the story “Exploring

Space with an Astronaut” by Patricia J. Murphy, Albers said. Baumgartner was able to upload some photos and videos prior to the Skype session including schematic drawings of the robotic rover, Albers said. “It went great, all of our technology was able to run smoothly,” she said. The students were very excited about the engineers’ ability to send commands from Earth to the rover on Mars, Albers said. “He talked about how long it takes for those transmission to take place,” she said. “The kids were very interested to find out if the robots will ever come back and of course they won’t.” Some of the students wrote in the their “what will you do now” section of their learning packets on the exercise they want to find out more about Mars and engineering now, Albers said. The activity offered students

NKU adjusts well to Division I By James Weber

Northern Kentucky University has had some things to celebrate in its first season of NCAA Division I competition. The volleyball team is 9-1after winning the Harvard Invitational Sept. 7-8 in Massachusetts. NKU lost in five sets to Manhattan, breaking an 8-0 start to the season, which is the most wins to start the year by a team in its first year in Division I since 1981. The volleyball team has come out on fire with their new status. No Atlantic Sun Conference team had started 7-0 since 2005. Entering play Sept. 7, NKU led the A-Sun in hitting percentage, kills, assists and aces. Jenna Ruble is the A-Sun individual leader with a .378 hitting percentage, while Jenna Schreiver also leads the A-Sun in assists with 11.84 per set. Schreiver recorded her 4,000th career assist during the early start. In the loss to Manhattan, Ruble had17 kills. Schreiver, a Notre Dame Academy product, had 58 assists, nine digs, six aces and five blocks. Kylee Tarantino, a Mount No-

The NKU volleyball team shows its Norse symbol after winning the Harvard Invitational Sept. 8. THANKS TO NKU tre Dame product from Loveland, moved into fifth place on the NKU career digs list. Freshman Jayden Julian, from Holy Cross, had a career-high 22 digs. Shelby Buscher, from St. Henry, Ohio, was the MVP of the Harvard tourney. Kelly Morrissey, also from Loveland and Mount Notre Dame, was named the Atlantic Sun Conference Player of the

Week for volleyball. Morrissey became NKU’s first ever A-Sun Player of the Week after posting 47 kills, 42 digs, eight blocks and five service aces to help the Norse to four wins this week and a 7-0 record to begin the Division I era. “I’m speechless when I try to describe how well she played this weekend,” said head coach Liz Hart of her senior setter. “Kelly

has been such a great leader for this team this season. Since she’s been here she’s worked hard to find her place on the court; now she’s starting to find her rhythm and get comfortable on the attack to where she’s a focal point for our team.” Recent highlights for Morrissey included 14 kills and 10 digs against Wright State, 12 and 13 against Morehead State and a career high 18 kills with 14 digs against Evansville. Former Newport Central Catholic standouts Taylor Snyder and Jamie Kohls are also on the team. NKU will head out to Rhode Island for an invitational hosted by Bryant. NKU will face Bryant, Holy Cross and Akron. NKU’s first home match is the A-Sun opener Tuesday, Sept. 18 against Lipscomb, who is the three-time defending champion of the league and picked to finish first again this year. NKU is eligible for the regular-season title but cannot play in the postseason during its transition time. NKU has eased itself into Division I scheduling, putting mostly mid-majors and smaller conference foes on its slate in both

soccer and volleyball. The volleyball team’s biggest win came at Morehead State, the preseason favorite in the Ohio Valley Conference. Former Newport Central Catholic standout Annie Gruenschlaeger was named conference player of the week last week.

Men’s soccer

The Norse were 0-4 heading into a match Sept. 9. NKU plays at Pittsburgh of the Big East Sept. 14. NKU starts conference play Sept. 22 at Belmont and will next play at home Oct. 4. An exhibition with Kentucky drew a sellout 1,210 fans at NKU. “It’s a learning experience for all these kids, especially the freshman,” said NKU head coach John Basalyga in a release. “They’re trying to get used to school and their schedules. The bottom line is we’re trying to get things done that we can do. We can’t worry about the other teams; they’re going to do what they’re going to do. We have to try to get some familiarity with each other. At the end of the year, I think we’ll be all right.” See NKU, Page A9

Young Camels make statement with rivalry win By James Weber

ALEXANDRIA — It was a rocky start to the 2012 season for the Campbell County High School volleyball team, but the Camels have been breaking apart those boulders as they pound volleyballs into the other side of the court. The Camels took steps to smooth out their path to glory after beating rival Bishop Brossart in four sets Sept. 6 at Brossart’s Seither Center. Campbell won 25-9, 20-25, 25-17, 25-13. The Camels improved to 8-7 and 2-0 in 37th District seeding play, while Brossart fell to 9-2 and 1-1. “Winning these games shows our girls have confidence,” said

first-year Camels head coach Kim Nemcek. “We know we are improving every day. We started out very young and we are growing as a team. We work on things every day that show up in the game, and if we keep doing that, we will be very strong at the end.” The win was a key early statement as the teams are considered two of the favorites to win the reconfigured 10th Region now that six-time champ Newport Central Catholic has moved to the Ninth. Campbell beat Harrison County, one of the other preseason contenders, the night before. “We played really well,” said Campbell sophomore libero Haley Cundiff. “We’ve been practicing covering block and defense. It’s a

district game and a region game and it was really important to win.” Nemcek, Campbell’s new head coach this year, was a former standout at Northern Kentucky University and had more than 1,200 kills in her college career. She was first team all-conference last year in her final season and helped lead the Norse to the NCAA Division II Tournament. Campbell dominated the first set only to watch Brossart pull away late in the second set for the five-point win after the teams were tied at 19. The young coach then had to go to work. “Our coach is just awesome,” See CAMELS, Page A9

Dayton upsets Brossart in Friday-night classic

Camels Continued from Page A8

By James Weber

Last week was successful for some local football teams.


Highlands beat Western 51-23 in Louisville to go 3-0 on the year. “It’s a good win against a fast, athletic team,” Highlands coach Dale Mueller said to Gannett News Service. “We lost two onside kicks and we gave up two kick returns for touchdowns. When that happens and you still win the game, you know your guys can handle some adversity. We just had to keep our eyes on the next play and the guys did that while playing on the road.” Donovan McCoy threw for 256 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 94 yards and two more. McCoy threw TD passes to Luke Brockett, Ryan Greene and Brandon Hergott. Greene had two catches for 74 yards, and Brockett also had six extra points and a field goal. Zach Harris had 86 yards on 14 carries with two scores. Highlands forced four turnovers, interceptions by Brady Murray, Quentin Murray and Blake Schutte, and a fumble recovery by Joey Cochran. Highlands hosts Mason County (1-3) 7:30 p.m. Friday.


Newport QB Robert Sharp throws the ball Sept. 7 against Scott. JAMES WEBER/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

The Tigers fell 13-6 at Henry County to drop to 1-3. Tyler Ackerson threw a 77-yard TD pass to Dylan Huff in the fourth quarter. Ackerson threw for 137 yards overall, 44 to Cody Corman on three connections. Huff and Zack Poinsett rushed for 65 yards apiece. Bellevue plays at Carroll County (4-0) 7 p.m. Friday.

Dayton/Bishop Brossart

The Greendevils upset the Mustangs 38-14. Dayton is 1-3 and Brossart is 1-2. Dejujuan Walker rushed for 216 yards and three touchdowns for Dayton, who won its first game since Sept. 9, 2011, a 10game span. Dylan Adams threw a TD pass to Tanner Lovell

and rushed for a score. Brossart’s Jacob Elbert rushed for 132 yards on 20 carries. Casey Pelgen threw for 218 yards and rushed for 30 yards. He also had a TD rush. Sean Tieman had a TD rush but was more dangerous in the air, catching seven passes for 140 yards. Elbert was also dangerous on defense, collecting eight solo tackles and seven assists. Brossart plays at Pendleton County (0-3) 7 p.m. Friday. Dayton plays at Newport (0-4) 7 p.m. Friday.

Campbell hosts Conner (2-1) 7 p.m. Friday

Campbell County

Newport Central

The Camels fell 27-16 to Cooper to fall to 2-2. Tyler Durham rushed for 174 yards and two touchdowns.

The Freedom reigns By Adam Turer

An exhilarating comeback was followed by a dominating clinch and the Florence Freedom earned a return trip home to make more history. Clutch hitting and consistent pitching has propelled the Freedom to the first-ever appearance in the Frontier League Championship Series. Now, the 10-year-old franchise has the chance to win it all in the team’s first postseason. “At this point, everything is breaking new ground,” said Clint Brown, the Freedom’s owner since 2005. The Freedom were down to their final out of

Women’s soccer

The Norse lost 1-0 in overtime to Xavier Sept. 4. The match drew a crowd of 1,210 fans, the largest for a women’s game since moving into the NKU Soccer Stadium in 2010. “It is a little nervewracking at first, but once you get used to it, it’s fun; especially when they started cheering for us,” Kelsey Zwergel (Cincinnati Mercy) said of the atmosphere created by the crowd.

the season on Sunday night, in Game 4 of their Frontier League Division series against the Gateway Grizzlies. Drew Rundle prolonged the season with a three-run walk-off home run to give the Freedom a 7-5 win and force a decisive Game 5. The series returned to Sauget, Ill., for the rubber match. Peter Fatse was determined to avoid the previous night’s drama. He started the scoring with a threerun shot in the top of the first inning. That was all the run support starting pitcher Brad Allen would need. The righty pitched eight shutout innings, while the offense continued to pad the lead. Fatse finished with six runs

batted in. “The cool part about this team is everyone has the same demeanor,” said Allen, who also tossed eight shutout innings in the Freedom’s Game 2 win. “You never know who’s going to step up. ” “We blew some games early in the year, but that disguised the fact that we were playing pretty good baseball throughout,” said Brown. “These kids scrapped and clawed and, come early August, they put it together.” Games 1 and 2 of the championship series (and Game 5, if necessary) will be played in Florence. The best of five championship series starts Sept.12 at Florence, after deadline.

The Norse beat Canisius to start the year but have lost four one-goal decisions since before beating Murray State Sept. 9. NKU is home 7 p.m. Friday against Oakland (Mich.) and will play its first conference game Friday, Sept. 21 against Jacksonville. Northern Kentucky products are Allison Ponzer of Simon Kenton and Maria Silbersack of Brossart. Silbersack scored twice against Murray State.

a time of 25:26.9 at the Covered Bridge Open 8K race to lead the Norse and claim sixth place in the individual event. His average mile pace of 5:05 helped him maintain the blistering pace set by the nationally ranked squads from Florida State and North Carolina. Last year, Webber set NKU freshman records at every cross country distance save the 10 kilometer. He was named an AllGLVC performer after a ninth-place result in last year’s conference meet. He finished 16th in the Queen City Invitaitonal Sept. 8 in Cincinnati to lead NKU to fifth overall. Trevin Peterson (Walton-Verona) was a starter. Addie Biteman of Midway, Ohio also finished 16th in the women’s race and the Norse were also fifth.

Cross country

Sophomore J.J. Webber was named the A-Sun Runner of the Week for men’s cross country Aug. 29. Webber, a sophomore from Liberty Township, Ohio, picked up right where he left off from his all-conference performance last year, turning in



The Wildcats were shut out 35-0 by Scott to drop to 0-4. Newport had just 78 yards offense as standout Daylin Garland missed most of the game with an injury. Robert Sharp threw for 51 yards and rushed for 35. JaQuan Short returned an interception 52 yards and Josh Mullins recovered a fumble. Newport hosts Dayton (1-3) 7 p.m. Friday. NCC (1-2) was off last week and hosts Simon Kenton (4-0) 7 p.m. Saturday at Newport High School.

Cundiff said. “She motivates us so much and the same with our setter, Carson Gray. They got us so pumped up and we knew we weren’t going to lose.” After Campbell won the third set, the Camels sprinted out to a 7-1 lead in the fourth set and never looked back. Junior Dixie Schultz led the Camels on a 6-0 run on her serve, in which she uses the standard two-step jump-serve technique. She had two aces in that run, and junior Hannah Weber posted a block and a kill. Schultz served again on a 4-0 run to give Campbell a 21-9 advantage, posting an ace followed by a kill from Kirby Seiter. In all, the Camels had 10 points on her serve in set four and Schultz had four aces on the night. Seiter, a sophomore, led Campbell with 15 kills. Schultz had nine. Weber, a junior, had eight kills and four blocks. Senior Sophie Head had five aces. “We knew coming in that it was going to be a good game,” Nemcek said. “It was a very mental game for us. We knew they were going to come back and fight.” Seiter, a sophomore, has led the Camels in kills in most of their matches. The Camels have been adjusting to injuries to their top two hitters coming into the season, senior Julia Peters and junior Taylor Kennedy. Peters is expected back soon but Kennedy is out for the year. “They were very important to our team and

our young girls now have the opportunity to show they can play, too,” Nemcek said. “They’re stepping up and they’re playing as a team. I’m excited to have Kirby for two more years. People look to her as a leader. She steps up and she shows the team she can carry the team with their help.” Campbell has two active seniors in Head and hitter Paige Painter. “We only have two seniors who are playing right now, so it’s kind of rough, but you just play through it,” Cundiff said. “We really click. We have a lot of bonding time. We’re a big family. We love each other and we show it on the court.” Senior Tori Hackworth led Brossart with 14 kills and three blocks. Senior Emily Greis had 28 digs. Brossart will travel to the Louisville suburb of Jeffersontown for the All “A” state tourney Sept. 15. Brossart will be in pool play with Owensboro Catholic, Green County and Russell. Head coach Pennie Wiseman said her Mustangs hit a rough patch leading up to the match against the Camels and she’s looking to get them back on the right track. “We didn’t move our feet and we didn’t work together,” she said. “My hope is we have a couple of tough practices, and then we play NCC next week, I hope that will be a good game to get them back up and build their confidence.” Follow James Weber on Twitter at @RecorderWeber or read his stories on

Career education a lot more than ‘shop’ I talk to a lot of business executives. Their top concern – especially when they’re making decisions about where to locate – almost always comes down to people: Will they be able to find enough highly skilled, educated and trained workers to make their business a success? Kentuckians are an industrious people, there’s no doubt. But when you consider how rapidly sophisticated the marketplace is becoming, our workforce must continue to improve. Cognizant of that fact, over the past few years we’ve been laying the groundwork for a stronger workforce by revolutionizing our system of career and technical education to make it more accessible to students at an earlier age, more rigorous academically and better aligned with both post-

secondary requirements and employer needs. This week we took another significant step forward Steve Beshear on that mission. COMMUNITY I signed an RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST executive order eliminating Kentucky’s current system of career and tech ed – a disjointed, duplicative system that is split between local school districts and the state Department of Workforce Investment – and unifying it under the auspices of Kentucky’s Department of Education. The executive order also establishes a CTE Advisory Committee to provide guidance as we create a more relevant and efficient system to educate

and prepare students for the world of work in a real-life setting. Today’s career and tech ed is a lot more vibrant and sophisticated than what used to be called “shop” – a handful of carpentry and mechanics classes designed for kids who didn’t plan on going to college. In fact, last year some 75 percent of Kentucky high school students were enrolled in CTE programs offered at 323 middle and high schools, area technology centers and career and technical centers across the state. As of next year, students will be able to choose from 16 career clusters, taking handson training in areas like agriscience, information technology, machine tool technology, health sciences, electrical technology and business administration. We’ve been partnering with

the General Assembly, the state Department of Education, federal officials, businesses and local educators on a variety of initiatives that are revolutionizing the face of career and technical education in Kentucky. These include: » A dual credit agreement that allows students to earn college credit for high school work. » The “Preparation for Tomorrow” initiative, which is creating a new model curriculum that emphasizes innovation, integration of core academics, 21st Century skills and project-based learning. » Industry partnerships designed to reduce the skills gap identified by manufacturers. Last year, the (national) Manufacturing Institute found that 67 percent of U.S. manufacturers reported a moderate

Limit computer, TV time In our busy lives, with so much technology, it can be hard to pull ourselves away from things like computers, TVs and video games. As a result, media can get in the way of the brain development of young children. It is important that Greta children spend Southard time develCOMMUNITY oping their RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST brain by reading, exploring, playing and interacting with others. Watching more than two hours of TV a day has been linked to lower reading scores and attention problems. Additionally, watching too much TV is also associated with more snacking and increased obesity. Despite the facts, preschool children on average spend 32 hours a week engaged in screen time activities. Screen time includes computers, TVs, gaming devices, and mobile devices (smartphones, iPads, tablets, etc.). The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the following healthy screen time guidelines: » No TV/computer under the age of 2 » One hour of educational TV/computer time between the

Kids can help with no-bake banana pudding

The “mom” in the title is me. This heirloom recipe is an easy dessert that the little ones can help with and it tastes so good. You can double this recipe for a 9-inch by 13-inch pan. If you double the recipe, use the larger box (5 oz. or so) of pudding. I put mine in a smaller casserole dish.

4 oz. cream cheese, softened ½ cup sweetened condensed milk (This is half of the 14 oz. can. Freeze the leftover milk.) 3.5 oz. package instant vanilla pudding 1½ cups milk1 tablespoon vanilla 2 cups whipping cream, sweetened to taste*, whipped and divided, or 16 oz. whipped topping, thawed and divided 3 ripe bananas, sliced About half a box of vanilla wafers

Put cream cheese and condensed milk in mixer and blend well. Whisk pudding mix into milk and vanilla, and blend until smooth. Add to cream

Rita’s no-bake banana pudding uses cream cheese and instant vanilla pudding. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

cheese mixture. Blend well and fold in half the whipped cream or whipped topping. Save the other half for garnish. Make layers in casserole dish: Vanilla wafers, bananas and the pudding mixture on top. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving or up to 8 hours. Garnish with whipped cream and more wafers. *To sweeten whipping cream: Stir in 1/4 cup powdered sugar or more to taste before whipping.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Sprinkle cocoa powder or shaved chocolate on top. Stir in a couple handfuls of coconut into the pudding. Make individual puddings in wine glasses.

Rita’s freezer pesto

Basil is in season right now. Make your own pesto and you’ll be happy you did. This makes a nice amount and is better than anything you can buy. Plus less expensive in the long run. A great topping for pizza, pastas, soups, breads. Fabulous dolloped

on polenta that you’ve cooked with a bit of garlic and Romano cheese. Pesto is good on just about anything! Go to taste on garlic. Some people like to leave the cheese out and just stir it in when thawing out for a brighter flavor. 1 to 1½ teaspoons garlic, minced ¼ cup pine nuts, toasted if desired ½ stick unsalted butter ½ cup parsley leaves 4 cups basil leaves, packed 1½ cups Parmesan cheese or to taste ½ to ¾ cup extra virgin olive oil

With food processor’s motor running, add garlic and nuts. Add everything else and process until smooth. Stays fresh in refrigerator about a week. To freeze, either fill ice cube tray sections or freeze in plastic bags, laying them flat on top of each other.

Mom’s no-cook best banana puddin’



Yesterday I took dinner to a friend who was ill. I wanted to bring a dessert for the family along with the meal but didn’t have a lot Rita of time, so I Heikenfeld decided to RITA’S KITCHEN make banana pudding. Now usually I make the pudding from scratch, like a pastry cream, but that wasn’t going to happen yesterday. So I carried in my no-bake version and it was a huge hit. Here’s the recipe for you to try.

Act quickly on cell phone problems these two buttons, the volume and the on-off at the same time. ‘Don’t do that,’ they said, ‘and that Howard shouldn’t Ain happen.’” HEY HOWARD! But Schweitzer says she had even more problems and returned to the cell phone store two more times in the first 12 days she had the phone. “They said, ‘This is the way the android phones work.’ Well, the other two phones I purchased did not.” She told that to the cell phone employee but he would not

take the phone back. A few weeks later, when she was back at the store for another reason, Schweitzer again inquired about getting a new phone to replace the one with which she’s continued to have problems. This time she was told the 14-day return policy had expired. In the meantime, Schweitzer continued to have billing problems. Her bill shows the company tried to correct it by giving her a credit, but the same charges also appeared on the new bills. At one point, she says, a supervisor tried to fix the billing issues but she says he made it worse. Schweitzer says, “He increased the data plans from $19.99 to $24.99, so now I’m overcharged on those. I’m still not getting the credit, I’m still being charged for the promotional officers – and the phone still doesn’t work.”

I contacted the cell phone company and the charges on her bill were corrected. In addition, she’s now getting a new cell phone free of charge. That’s something she says she had been trying to do for months. The big thing to remember when buying a new cell phone is to take it back to the store immediately if there’s a problem. You usually only have a limited time, in this case just 14 days, in which to get a replacement phone or cancel the sale altogether. After that time you may be out of luck.

With new, improved cell phones coming out each year it’s no wonder nearly 500 million phones were sold worldwide last year alone. But before you buy a new wireless phone you need to know your rights, just in case something goes wrong. Cathy Schweitzer of Alexandria bought three new phones for herself and family earlier this year. She quickly noticed there was a problem with the phone she bought for herself – it would take too long to turn on. Schweitzer says, “I took it back on April 2 and they said the problem was the way I was holding the phone. That I was pressing

Lawn disease is in the air Question: My lawn greened up, but it still has a lot of brown grass in it. This morning I noticed that each of the small brown areas (each about 1-2 feet in diameter and somewhat circular) was covered with cobwebs or mold. How can I keep this from killing the entire lawn? Answer: It sounds like your lawn is infested with “Brown Patch” fungus disease. All turf grasses grown in Kentucky lawns can be affected by Brown Patch. However, this disease is usually destructive only in tall fescue and perennial ryegrass during warm, humid weather. While Brown Patch can temporarily harm a lawn’s appearance, it usually does not cause permanent loss of turf except in plantings less than one year old. On individual grass blades of tall fescue, oblong spots change from olive green to tan, surrounded by a thin, dark brown border on the otherwise green blade of grass. Brown Patch is most

destructive under high temperatures (highs above 85 degrees, lows above 60 deMike grees). Klahr ApplicaHORTICULTURE tion of high CONCERNS levels of nitrogen fertilizer, particularly during spring and summer, favors development of Brown Patch by producing lush, succulent growth that is very susceptible to attack by the fungus. Other factors increase disease severity by creating a humid environment favorable for fungal growth. These factors include: overwatering, watering in late afternoon or evening, poor soil drainage, lack of air movement, shade, a high mowing height (over 3 inches), and overcrowding of seedlings. Excessive thatch, mowing when wet, and leaf fraying by dull mower blades also can increase disease severity.

To reduce the problem next year, be sure to apply the bulk of nitrogen fertilizer to cool-season turf grasses in fall and early winter rather than spring or summer. Avoid overfertilizing, particularly with fertilizers high in nitrogen. Using soil tests as a guide, maintain adequate levels of phosphorous and potassium in the soil. Do not attempt to cure summertime outbreaks of Brown Patch with nitrogen fertilization, however, as this will simply aggravate the disease. Set a mower height of no greater than 2 ½ inches. To avoid stressing the grass, mow often enough so that no more than onethird to one-half of the leaf length is removed at any one mowing. During an active outbreak of Brown Patch in hot, humid weather, clipping removal can help eliminate a food base for the fungus. Removing dew, by dragging a hose across the lawn or by very light irrigation during early morning hours, will

reduce prolonged leaf wetness and remove leaf exudates that encourage disease development. Avoid using excessive seeding rates when seeding or renovating a lawn, as overcrowding can aggravate an outbreak of Brown Patch. Selectively prune nearby trees and shrubs to increase air movement and light penetration, thereby allowing leaf surfaces to dry more quickly. Avoid applying herbicides during an active outbreak, as these may aggravate the disease. In an established lawn, fungicide sprays are not recommended to control Brown Patch. Cultural practices will usually do a great deal to reduce the disease. Newly seeded lawns, however, may need treated with a fungicide such as Daconil (chlorothalonil), Mancozeb (Dithane), Heritage, Medallion, or Compass. A lawn care company may be consulted for this service. Mike Klahr is the Boone County extension agent for horticulture.

A lesson in listening “If you would just listen, the first time;” It’s a phrase I’ve heard my husband repeat to one of our children at least a thousand times or more. Always followed up with, “your life would be so much easier.” Still, they look up at him as if he has three heads. “Listen? What do you mean? What’s that?” Frustrating as it is, their little brains cannot seem to fully comprehend the value of listening sometimes (and the consequences of not.)

who listen to its message and obey what it says.” Revelation 1:3 Or, do you hear a constant nagging voice in your head reminding you of all the things you need to do and accomplish? All the people you need to “change.” A voice so loud and overwhelming it interrupts your day and zaps your joy and peace. If so, listen, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28 Or, do you simply feel like life in general is too hard, simply not fair. If so, listen, “No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening-it’s painful. But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way.” Hebrew 12:11 Practice, practice, practice. Like any good teacher, our heavenly father reminds us that our lives become more manageable when we practice what we know to be true. I pray this week you will learn to live out and practice God’s word in your life. Listen and know that He will bless you as you study and obey His word. Listen and know that true rest is found in His arms and listen and know that the harvest is coming. Julie House is a member of East Dayton Baptist Church and former resident of Campbell County.

Keep food safe while tailgating Transitions to Football and fall sport season is upon us. More people will be pulling out their grills and supplies for the pregame tailgate events. Some menus have become more sophisticated at these events but the basic food safety rules remain the same. Keep in mind; you want to be remembered for the food and fun, not for making people ill or causing a trip to the doctor. Plan you foods carefully. Plan the amounts and the menu for the crowd you expect. You’ll need to keep the foods at a safe temperature while traveling and throughout the event. Take only what you know you will use. Plan for cold, plan for

hot. Perishable foods should be kept cold (40 degrees or below) before they are cooked or served. Diane Hot foods Mason should be EXTENSION kept that NOTES way (140 degrees or above) until they are consumed. Pack coolers with plenty of ice, and pack along an instant read thermometer. Avoid cross contamination. If you think your meats might drip or leak in the cooler, pack them separate from the fruits and vegetables. You don’t want to contaminate the foods that won’t be cooked with

juices from raw meats. Take along plenty of plates and cooking utensils. You don’t want to put cooked foods back on the dish that held the raw foods. Clean your hands. Take along a way to clean your hands, especially before starting to cook and after handling raw foods. Hand sanitizers and moist towelettes are OK choices. You can always pack water, soap, and some towels if you know there will be a lot of messes. Know your temperatures. Our friends at the U.S. Department of Agriculture remind us to cook foods to an adequate internal temperature. Those are: all poultry, 165 degrees F; ground meats, 160 degrees F; and beef, pork,

sponsor Recovery Month event

lamb, and veal steaks, roasts and chops, 145 degrees F. While everyone has a great time at the tailgate event, don’t forget to keep an eye on the clock. Most foods should not be left out for more than two hours (one hour if the temperature is 90 degrees or above). Store leftovers safely, in a very cold cooler with plenty of ice. Upon arrival at home, determine if the food remaining is safe to keep. Foods should be at 40 degrees F or below, otherwise they should be tossed.

Community Recorder Transitions Inc. will be sponsor a Recovery Month event 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15, at Pioneer Park Shelter No. 2, 3951 Madison Ave., Covington.
