Attorney candidates District 1 candidates focus on funding differ on experience Positions on By Chris Mayhew

By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

The Campbell County Attorney’s race pits a candidate touting a career in the private sector against a candidate espousing the value of a career spent in public service. The Nov. 2 election will feature a choice between incumbent Democrat James A. Daley and Republican challenger Steven J. Franzen. Daley, 54, of California, was appointed by Judgeexecutive Steve Pendery to the post in January 2009 after spending five years as the chief deputy at the county’s jail, assisting with the jail budget and overseeing litigation. He was an assistant county attorney from 1999 to 2003, and the county’s interim jailer from 1998-99. Franzen, 54, of Fort Thomas, is an attorney practicing since 1985 with an office in Newport, handling cases in court including planning and zoning cases, employment cases, and criminal law as both a defense attorney and prosecutor. Franzen said although he has experience writing ordinances and working with local government, including 23 years as the city attorney for Highland Heights, that’s just one aspect of his experience. Having never been involved in state or local government except for five years as an assistant county attorney, Franzen said he wants to bring an outsider’s perspective to the office. Franzen said Daley is part of the same group of people that have controlled the county attorney’s office for 30 years, and change is needed. Franzen said he wants the county to examine becoming self-insured, something that could save $100,000 or more each year.

Franzen Daley “I really do think that is something that could benefit the taxpayers of Campbell County, and I really don’t believe my opponent has the relevant experience to pull it off,” Franzen said. Daley said he sees his experience with police and working in the public sector as his greatest strength for why he’s the best person for the office. Daley said after initially being a trooper and detective for the Kentucky State Police early in his career, he then spent three years representing KSP’s legal office, and 1.5 years as commander of that legal office. Having worked with the jail since 1998, he’s familiar with lawsuits lodged against the jail, which helps make him well qualified to be county attorney. “I think my background makes me a perfect fit for it,” Daley said. Daley said he also knows how to operate a private business, having operated his own private practice continuously since 1989 including representing several large companies. Daley said he’s spent his entire career trying to be of service to the community. “I’ve worked hard to protect seniors and children, and he’s chosen to represent criminals and doing criminal work as opposed to representing the people,” Daley said of Franzen.

Saving money for county taxpayers is the stated goal of both the Republican and Democratic candidates for the District 1 county commissioner seat, but each candidate has a unique focus when it comes to the budget. Democrat Michael Schulkens, 59, of Cold Spring, and Republican Brian Painter, 50, of Alexandria, are both vying for the open District 1 commissioner seat in the Nov. 2 election. Mark Hayden, RWilder, chose not to seek reelection. Painter, who owns Vineyard Hardwoods in Alexandria, said the county commissioners need to be focused on trimming the budget wherever possible to cut spending. Painter said when it comes to attracting jobs, the county needs to capitalize on Campbell County Judgeexecutive Steve Pendery’s message that the Fiscal Court spends less per capita than almost all other Northern Kentucky governments. “If we spend less per capita than many other areas in Northern Kentucky, we need to tout that, and we need to recruit on that,” Painter said. Schulkens, an attorney, said he is campaigning on his experience including a record of working with a team in Newport as the city solicitor. The team helped foster job creation to increase revenue and allow for a lowering in property tax rates, Schulkens said. Schulkens said his opponent talks about cutting budget expenditures in a time of need, but that’s an

issues

Painter Schulkens attitude needed all the time. “In the city of Newport we cut our expenses, we cut our payroll, not at a time, now when it was urgent, and not a time now when we are in a recession. The city of Newport began to do that on a regular basis during my tenure there as part of a team,” he said. The city went from 165 to 135 employees during his tenure, and although the city budget didn’t go down, the city did increase its services, he said. Painter said he has a the county needs to look at elective costs like how much it spends on the bus system. “We do need the system, but they’re just like everyone else, they can take can take a cut,” Painter said. The county needs to look at what it is paying into the Ohio Indiana Kentucky Council of Regional Governments, he said. Recreational areas the county maintains also needs to be done without a cash infusion each year, he said.

Smoking ban: District 1 Commissioner candidates Michael Schulkens and Brian Painter are both openly against any legislation prohibiting smoking in privately owned indoor spaces. Government change: Painter said he believes the citizens of the county are smart enough to make up their own mind of whether to switch to an eight magistrate system elected from voters in their district or keep the three commissioner system where voters throughout the county get to vote on all three commissioners. Schulkens said he is adamantly against the idea of switching to the magistrate system and that Painter is ducking the issue by not taking a stand one way or another. “We’ve just got to do a better job managing our funds, trying to select things that we can, you know, look at trimming,” Painter said. “Of course the last thing we want to do is look at personnel.” Painter said how the county can help increase employment in the private sector is by making better use of the electronic Geographic Information System (GIS) to help identify parcels developable parcels. Corridors ripe for

improvement include along Ky. 8 in Silver Grove, along the AA Highway and in Wilder, and from Alexandria south to the Sara Lee plant, he said. Schulkens said in part because of job creation in Newport, the city’s property tax rate dropped during his tenure with Newport from about $6 per $1,000 of assessed value to just over $2 per $1,000 of assessed value. “I was part of a team that took an innovative approach and not just to say that it can’t be done,” he said. “We created a lot of revenue sources to the city of Newport.” Schulkens said he wants to take an innovative approach to attract revenue to the county, and he’s not saying attract businesses. “Sometimes you need to bolster up businesses already here to keep them from moving to another county or area,” he said. Schulkens said anyone can talk about creating an industrial area and attracting businesses, but he has experience in fostering that. “If we can do it in Newport, we can do it in the county with the same approach,” he said.

How to buy local focus of meetings By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

If people don’t already know where to buy organically or locally grown foods, free information sessions in October have been planned to solve that problem. Campbell County Extension Service Agent for Agriculture and Natural Resources Don Sorrell has set up a series of buying local information sessions. Sorrell is bringing information about a local organic farm, wineries, farmer’s markets, honey bee products and gift baskets of locally made items, as well as how to buy locally raised beef cuts from local farmers. The freezer beef program, started in March, attracted the interest of more than 120 people at a separate March meeting, Sorrell said. But, many people still don’t know about the program, he said.

“The idea when I put these programs together was to take the program out to different locations,” Sorrell said. The sessions will also cover topics including the advantages of buying locally grown and processed foods, he said. People are starting to look at where their food is coming from, and it’s good for people from urban areas to connect with farmers that don’t live too far from them, Sorrell said. There’s also the issue of how much gasoline is used to ship food from far away places, he said. “And with vegetables it’s a combination of taste and variety and supporting the local economy and farmers,” Sorrell said. One of the topics Sorrell will be talking about is the new Campbell County Proud Gift Basket program through the Campbell County Farmland Work Group.

Test results a mixed bag for schools and Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

Campbell County’s public schools are making strides toward meeting all their goals despite some schools falling short on state testing. The Kentucky Department of Education has released the federal No Child Left Behind Act reports based upon results from the Kentucky Core Content Testing students took in the 2009-’10 school year. Bellevue Independent School District In Bellevue, only the district’s elementary school, Grandview Elementary, met its Adequate Yearly Progress goals under NCLB with its 2010 results. The high school didn’t meet its math requirements for the second year in a row, putting the school in a “improvement year 1” status, meaning the district must offer options for students to transfer schools if possible. Dan Ritter, the district’s director of curriculum, said judging by other areas where the district is doing better, he is surprised at the scores. “It’s disappointing, but there are just so many factors that contribute to the scores,” Ritter said. “We need to see what else we can do to support our students and teachers.” Ritter said the district is working to break down the information by student and has an intervention plan in place to help those students who aren’t meeting goals. Fort Thomas Indepen dent Schools As in years past, all five schools in Fort Thomas met their AYP, but that doesn’t mean they can take it easy, said Superintendent John Williamson. “It gets more and more

including tutoring. District officials were unable to be reached for comment. Silver Grove Independent Schools The one school district continued to not meet AYP on NCLB, and did not meet AYP in either reading or math. Superintendent Ken Ellis took over the school over this summer after former superintendent Danny Montgomery retired after five years at the helm. Jamie Baker was also hired as the principal of the school this summer to replace the outgoing principal who left to take a superintendent’s job in a Western Kentucky county school district. Ellis said the district received credit from the state for how many students in its elementary school either improved to proficient or distinguished in both reading and math. “Our elementary school did very very well this year, they moved up so much this year we’re in what you call

‘safe harbor’,” Ellis said. The elementary receives a “noteworthy status” for progress made and helps to offset the test results for the middle school and high school, he said. “If we wouldn’t have done that we would have gotten some more sanctions against us,” Ellis said. The district has received a school improvement grant for the current school year, and is using it to have both a reading and a math specialist in the school working with students four days a week with a goal of more progress on the upcoming year’s tests, he said.

Southgate Independent School District In Southgate Independent, a 40 percent increase in enrollment didn’t stop the school from once again meetings it AYP goals. “We were glad to see that with the change in population, we were still able to meet our goals,” said Superintendent Jim Palm. “I’m really proud of our school, we’re like the little train that could.” Palm said while they focused on instruction last year, the focus will be on curriculum and content this year to prepare students for increasing goals.

The CKFT-Covington arrested Mark “Markie” Williams and Bryan Turner, both of Dayton. The men were found hiding in a house on Liberty Street in Newport. Williams and Turner were wanted at that time for burglary warrants from Mason County, Ky. Both men are now suspects in more than 75 TriState home burglaries involving the theft of multiple firearms/safes, jewelry, tools and other items from their victims.

Superintendent Anthony Strong said the district, by using the index used by the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence, a nonprofit advocacy group for education in Kentucky, is showing overall growth. “Overall I think when you look at the results it’s very apparent that progress is being made,” he said.

By 2014, all students will need to be at 100 percent proficency. Campbell County School District As a district, Campbell County slipped back to not meeting AYP. The district met AYP on NCLB in 2009 after not meeting AYP in 2008. Whether the district met AYP or not doesn’t tell the entire story, and reading, science and on demand writing scores all showed significant gains, said Shelli Wilson, associate superintendent for the district. “With the combined reading and math scores we are closing the gap in every one of the areas that we

St. Catherine students ‘Get Fit’ By Amanda Joering Alley ajoering@nky.com

A new club at St. Catherine of Siena is getting students, parents and staff moving. Colts Get Fit, a new after-school program started by parent Kelly Glaser, recently began at the school. “Obesity is a big problem these days,” Glaser said. “I think its important that we find ways to get kids fit and get them moving.” Glaser said after taking blood pressures at the school and noticing that many were too high, she came up with the idea to start the club. About two-thirds of the school’s students have signed up for the club, which meets twice a week for a walk/run near the school. The days of the club vary to accommodate various schedules. “Our main goal is to let the kids get fit while having fun in a noncompetitive, structured environment,” Glaser said. Fifth-grader Sean Williams said he joined the club because it gives him a chance to stay healthy while hanging out with his friends. Jillian Fields, also in fifth grade, said she likes having a chance to get some exercise. “Besides soccer, I don’t really have a chance to get outside and exercise as much during the school year because of homework and everything,” Fields said. The club is being led and

Students celebrate ‘Kids Day’ in style By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

Students at Grant’s Lick Elementary School dressed as rock stars, movie stars and other personas for an annual community involvement celebration in their honor known as Kentucky Kids Day Tuesday, Sept. 21. Parents, uncles, aunts, police officers, firefighters and members

of a neighboring church all volunteered in shifts to serve the children a feast at lunch and greet the students as they arrived in the morning to school. Schools throughout Kentucky participate in the annual day. Established in 1985, the goal of Kentucky Kids Day is to set aside one day for students to “send the message to each child that he or she is a special and

unique individual who is respected and loved,” according to the Kentucky Parent Teacher Association’s website www.kypta.org. The day is a wonderful way for the children to see what goes on inside the school is important to community members, and also for the community volunteers to get to know the school, said Debbie Montgomery, a paraeducator at the school.

“It gives the community a chance to come into the school and see what’s going on,” Montgomery said. Dolly Hesler, a great-aunt of one of the students, came to the school to serve the students lunch as part of a contingent of volunteers from Grant’s Lick Baptist Church. The church is situated directly across the street from the school. Kids Day is just as much fun for the adults as it is for the students, she said. Members of the church often volunteer and help out in any way they can for multiple events throughout the school year, Hesler said. “We support just about anything they do because most of the kids at church go here,” she said.

NCC announces seven AP Scholars Seven students at Newport Central Catholic have earned the designation of AP Scholar by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Program (AP Exams). The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program offers students the opportunity to take challenging college-level courses while still in high school, and to receive college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful perform-

ance on the AP Exams. About 18 percent of the more than 1.8 million high school students in more than 16,000 secondary schools worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to merit the recognition of AP Scholar. Students took AP Exams in May 2010 after completing challenging collegelevel courses at their high schools. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP

Exams. At Newport Central Catholic, three students, Brian Hogle, Nolan Johnson, and Cole Little qualified for the AP Scholar with Distinction by earning an average grade of at least 3.50 on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams. Four NCC students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with grades of 3 or higher. The AP Scholars are Natalie Buller, Catherine Butts, Olivia Hagedorn, and Daniel Merril. Of this year’s award recipients at NCC two were juniors. Natalie Buller and Olivia Hagedorn have at least one more year in which to complete college level work/additional AP courses and earn another AP Scholar Award.

NKU Communication professor feminist teaching/mentoring Northern Kentucky University communication professor Jimmie Manning has been selected by the Organization for the Study of Communication, Language and Gender to receive the 2010 Feminist Teacher-Mentor Award. Manning was selected from numerous applicants to receive the award at the organization’s annual meeting last week in Tampa. “We had multiple outstanding nominees,” said Cerise L. Glenn, the award committee chair. “The award committee felt that Dr. Manning’s work and commitment to feminist studies and mentoring students embodies the spirit of the award.” Manning is in his fifth year as assistant professor for NKU’s communication graduate program and serves as director of the program. He teaches courses in relationships, gender and sexuality, informatics and media criticism. The award seeks to honor one exemplary feminist teacher-mentor who

has inspired students and colleagues by modeling feminist ideals of caring, community power-sharing and commitment while also earning individual and collaborative records of achievement. Manning’s nomination packet particularly highlighted his servicelearning courses for undergraduate and graduate students. The award nomination was submitted by Manning’s former students. “His classes generate open, honest discussion because Dr. Manning creates a classroom environment that feels like a family community, where everyone’s ideas are valued,” said Kathleen CoxBarker, a student in the program. Stephanie Isaacs, a communication studies alumna preparing for law school, said Manning goes above and beyond for every student. “While on a servicelearning trip to Kansas with him and a group of other students, he even tried to schedule an appointment

for me with someone from the University of Kansas’s law program,” she said. “Jimmie Manning is indefatigable, and an inspiration,” said Charles Morris, a communication professor at Boston College who supported Manning’s nomination. “He has turned the work others do only begrudgingly into an art form, and a model of community. From wherever they come, Jimmie Manning’s gifts can be measured in heart and intelligence, and his many colleagues are enriched by his bounty.” The Organization for the Study of Communication, Language and Gender began in 1978. Since that time, it has sought to provide an international forum for professional discussion, presentation of research and demonstration of creative projects in the areas of communication, language and gender. The organization hosts an annual convention and sponsors the interdisciplinary journal Women & Language.

NKU mock election focuses on U.S. Senate race Once again, Northern Kentucky University is inviting students, faculty and staff to vote in the online mock election, first developed by NKU’s College of Informatics and Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement for use in the 2008 presidential election. This political season, the mock election features the U.S. Senate race in Kentucky, in which Democrat Jack Conway and Republican Rand Paul are the major candidates. The mock election will remain open for NKU voting through Election Day Nov. 2. Up-to-the-minute results can be viewed at http://ivote.nku.edu. Anyone with an NKU email address can vote once. Each voter is also asked to complete a short survey asking what three issues and two candidate characteristics matter most to them in this year’s election. The online voting is intended to raise awareness and participation in the senate race, one of the most closely watched elections in the nation this fall. The mock election is open to NKU students, faculty and staff. The election uses an innovative online infrastructure that allows a viewer to click on the results and data dive to see how different groups voted; for example, are freshmen voting differently from seniors? “The mock election is one of several initiatives on campus this fall designed to encourage interest in the 2010 election and, more generally, to emphasize the importance of full participation in civic life and democratic processes,” said Mark Neikirk, executive director of NKU’s Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement. In the 2008 mock election, about 3,000 people voted. The economy was the top issue, polling around 70 percent among both Barack Obama voters and John McCain voters. In the current mock election the economy ranks No.

Sydney Ossege, Corrine Carnohan and Patsy Harrington placed in spots 6-8 for Highlands. Ashley Gish was 10th and Cassidy Hill 15th. Of that group, Gish, a junior, is

the only Bluebird to matriculate in the easternmost wing of the Highlands campus. All the others are middle-schoolers. The winner Ossege is a seventh-grader. “We ran a lot of middle schoolers,” Highlands head coach Dan Baker said. “One day someone does well, the other day it’s someone else. We have a lot of young talent. They’re good kids and they work with you.” Hailee Rose led the Camels in third place, and Lorin Martin was fifth. Sarah Rawe was ninth, Faith Roaden 12th, Emily Ripberger 14th and Jessica Holden 18th. Olivia Johnson was fourth for Brossart and Shelly Neiser 13th. Alex Schalk led NewCath in 11th place.

Dayton’s top runner was Chris Johnson in 20th. Brossart won the overall championship using a formula that combined the top finishers in each gender.

John Gesenhues is hoping his young Highlands boys’ golf team can contend for the Region 8 championship Sept. 28 at Pendleton County. The Bluebirds dive in off a strong springboard after winning the Division II boys’ golf championship in the Northern Kentucky Athletic Conference tournament Sept. 20. It is the first conference title in Gesenhues’ three-year tenure. Highlands posted an outstanding 318 to beat rival Newport Central Catholic by 29 shots. Brossart was third at 350. “That was pretty cool,” Gesenhues said. “It was a great accomplishment for us from where we’ve come over a three-year period. For us being so young with three eighth-graders and a freshman is really good for us. It was a nice day where everybody played well and they were focused on what was going on.” Highlands showed strong depth in the tourney.

Ballot terms a concern

Proponents of a ballot initiative to switch the style of representation on Campbell County’s government want people to understand the name they should associate with the idea is “justice of the peace” and not “magistrate.” Organizers of an Oct. 12 debate in Southgate and news articles have used the magistrate term, and that’s not what voters will see on the ballot, said Tim Nolan of California, a proponent for the ballot initiative. Nolan will participate in the debate at the Soughgate Community Center, 301 W. Walnut St., from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 12. The name of the debate has since been changed from a magistrate vs. commissioner debate to a justice of the peace vs. commissioner debate. The yes or no question voters will see on the ballot at the polls Nov. 2 is: “Are you in favor of a return to a fiscal court composed of the county judge/executive and eight (8) justices of the peace who shall represent specific districts within the county?” Nolan said he doesn’t want people to hear discussions about magistrate and then be confused when they go to the polls because they see a different term. “You know, are they even going to bother to vote on the issue,” he said. People also may not realize if the ballot initiative is approved, the government switch will eliminate the need for the current three justice of the peace format because it’s a constitutionally mandated job, Nolan said. Currently, there are three justice of the peace districts for each of the three commissioner districts. Their primary duty is to marry people. If the government switch is approved the justice of the peace would be the elected officials of the Fiscal Court. “We don’t want people to just think we’re just expanding the number of people who can marry somebody,” Nolan said. If voters approve the government switch idea it will also increase the number of constables in the county from the current three to eight, one for each justice of the peace district. Nolan said he believes part of the confusion over the name of justice of the peace or magistrate comes from the name of the statewide organization representing them, the nonprofit Kentucky Magistrates and Commissioners Association. The association uses the common name of magistrates because that’s what most people use in the counties that have a justice of the peace system of government, said Richard Tanner, executive director of the association.

Silver Grove pizza wins challenge By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

For two men who spent six months eating pepperoni pizza twice a week all around Northern Kentucky, their preference is that the pizza come from Pepperoncini’s Pizza in Silver Grove. For almost six months, two 33year-old friends, Brad Zapp of Union and Jay Vaughn of Covington made it a mission to find their favorite pepperoni pizza. The duo dubbed their calling “The Northern Kentucky Pizza Challenge,” and created a Facebook page of the same name to solicit suggestions for local pizzerias they should visit. They visited 19 pizza restaurants, and they found about six they really liked, but it was Pepperoncini’s that won their hearts. Opened in December 2008, Pepperoncini’s is the culmination of Alexandria resident Robert Brooks’ work to perfect his own method of pizza-making since he was a teenager. “I’m 28 years old,” Brooks said. “I’ve been doing this for 15 years.” Brooks worked for local pizza

franchises for years before opening Pepperoncini’s and said he has only one secret for making a good pizza. “You have to care about what you’re doing,” he said. Brooks said after hearing about the pizza challenge, he quickly realized his restaurant wasn’t on Zapp and Vaughn’s list of places to visit, so he had a few friends email them to get Pepperoncini’s on their tasting agenda. Vaughn said they started receiving lots of suggestions people about pizza restaurants through their Facebook fan page that met their no mass-produced requirements. “Custom pizza beats assembly line pizza any day,” Vaughn said. Zapp and Vaughn have known each other since fourth grade, and said the pizza taste testing was a way to make time to spend time together doing something they enjoy. Zapp said at half the places they visited the pepperoni wasn’t on top, but was buried beneath the cheese. “I mean it looks cooler, it’s just like a ‘duh,’” Zapp said. Crust is also a big deal, and

Pepperoncini’s crust was good, he said. “It came out, and it was well done and it was crisp,” Zapp said. There were some places that didn’t have a good crust, or almost non-existent because it was coated with grease, he said. Vaughn said he could just tell by the look on Zapp’s face if the crust wasn’t all right. Each of the duo have their own personal preferences, but they explicitly did not inform the restaurant how to prepare the pizzas, he said. Vaughn said when he orders a pizza he sometimes tells them to make it well done. They just ordered a pepperoni pizza like any regular customer without any special instructions, he said. “Pepperoncini’s was the only one that did it the perfect way without asking,” Vaughn said. Zapp and Vaughn plan to continue their food challenge by either taste-testing burgers or sushi — after a few months break. “I think we’ll always do it because it’s just fun, but I know Jay’s got to watch his cholesterol,” Zapp said. “We have to get back into ‘fighting’ shape.”

Judge-executive race continues Nov. 2 By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

Voters will be asked to choose who they want to lead the county for the next four years Nov. 2 as the Republican incumbent Judgeexecutive is challenged by a Democratic newcomer to county politics. Democrat Andrea Janovic of Newport is challenging incumbent Republican Steve Pendery of Fort Thomas for the job. Pendery is seeking a third term in office, and defeated fellow Republican Kevin Sell in the May primary. Janovic, 43, an attorney and a member of the Newport Independent School District for five years, said Pendery has had eight years and is out of touch with residents. “I have observed over the last several years what I call an increasing level of disconnect between the fiscal court in general, but in particular between the office of judge-executive and the people of Campbell County,” Janovic said. Pendery, 56, who owns a family-run insurance business in Fort Thomas and is also an attorney, said the county has done a good job of managing the budget and needs to continue to live within its means. “We spend less per resident than just about every other gov-

ernment except for a few small cities,” he said. Pendery said there are two Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district projects that could each bring $1 billion Pendery of investment to the county when they are fully built. That will be a big impact on county revenue since the total valuation of the county is about $5 billion, he said. “The economy is in a mess, but we are poised as a recovery happens to do well,” Pendery said. Pendery said there has been heavy investment in the county on transportation infrastructure and more is on the way as the state prepares to invest as much as $30 million to install a completely new surface on Interstate275 in Campbell County. “I am part of a larger team that has delivered well for Northern Kentucky,” he said. There are also plans by the area’s sanitation agency to add new sewer line mains connecting to the new sewage treatment plant in Alexandria, Pendery said. The county has also worked with Northern Kentucky University to ensure the intellectual capital

Janovic

of their programs are intended to be used for the benefit of the community, he said. “If you have a mismatch of skills, then you don’t reach full employment,”

Pendery said. On smoking, Pendery said he supports some kind of legislation, but said the only reason government is involved in the issue is because years ago the Surgeon General declared definitively that second hand smoke is harmful to people’s health. “My thoughts on that ban is it’s not a smoking ban that’s being talked about,” he said. “People are being asked to step outside when they’re in a public place.” Janovic said the judge-executive needs to turn attention to the operation of the county budget that has gotten “a bit out of hand” including the county golf course and parks, bus service contributions, and the county’s IT department, she said. The county should explore leasing the county golf course land to a private company that will manage it so the county

Eagle Scout brothers build bridges By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

Twin 17-year-old brothers Justin and Tyler Bezold aren’t identical twins, and the two bridges each of them built aren’t alike either, but the brothers’ dedication to the Boy Scouts of America is exactly the same.

The Bezold brothers of Alexandria each attained Eagle Scout status Sept. 26 for designing and building wooden pedestrian bridges over waterways in the nature center at Ryland Heights Elementary School in Kenton County. “There’s two places in the nature center where there’s a spillway where it overflows and it was hard to cross,� Tyler said. Tyler built a 20-foot bridge and Justin built a 26foot bridge, so students at the school can tour the nature center and cross the water. Justin said their father, Bruce, scoutmaster of Troop 96, helped teach them drafting techniques so they could design the bridges before building them, a process that took them about two years to complete. One of the most difficult

Elections makes some money off of it, and doesn’t lose money in the process, she said. Also, the county’s IT department is possibly providing cities with a service at a lower-than market rate, and that might not be the best thing for taxpayers, Janovic said. The judge-executive job is outlined well in state law, and isn’t what Pendery makes it, she said. “We see Mr. Pendery turning into a self-made diplomat and wheeler and dealer, and unfortunately we’re not really seeing a bang for the buck,� she said.

parts of completing the projects was raising and asking for enough money to buy the materials, Justin said. Tyler said he learned an appreciation for what it takes to start with nothing and make something. Completing the Eagle Scout project taught them leadership, Tyler said. Justin said being Eagle Scout is something theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve both worked toward since they joined the cub scouts in first grade, and later the Boy Scouts in fifth grade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been my biggest goal growing up,â&#x20AC;? Justin said of attaining Eagle Scout. Eagle Scout also looks good on a job application, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It says a lot about your character and your morals and how you are around people,â&#x20AC;? Justin said. Being a boy scout is a

way of life of living by the 12 qualities in scout law including being trustworthy, loyal, helpful, reverent, obedient, courteous and kind, he said. Tyler said when they joined the boy scouts as fifth-graders, he and his brothers looked up to the Eagle Scouts in Troop 96 at the time, brothers Charlie and Dan Breetz. The Breetz brothers helped as mentors on the Bezoldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bridge projects. Tyler said seeing all the skills Charlie Breetz learned and what he accomplished as an Eagle Scout led him to look up to Breetz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just aspired to be like he was,â&#x20AC;? Tyler said. Tyler and Justin, both seniors at Bishop Brossart High School, are the sons of Bruce and Joyce Bezold. Troop 96 is chartered through and based at St. Mary Parish in Alexandria.

seemingly totally stalled, and other projects including Manhattan Harbour in Dayton and the Kroger and Target projects in Newport are painfully slow in coming along. While the Kroger and Target are more in line with the desires and hopes of county residents, projects like Ovation that Pendery has championed arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily, she said. Janovic said she proposes forming a citizens group to inform county leadership what the real goals of county residents are. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As an example, the smoking ban is a great example of disconnect,â&#x20AC;? she said. Residents have not been informed along the way

until recently what was happening in the process of drafting a potential smoking ban and have had little or no knowledge of the terms being thrown around, Janovic said. Janovic said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a smoker, but is against the smoking ban idea, favoring instead a process where county businesses could decide their own smoking policies each year and register their decision with the county. In a difficult economy, why target businesses, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why do you need to add to, number one, the complexity of running a business; but number two, add to the cost?â&#x20AC;? Janovic said.

Noel 1999 to 2002 and from 2006 to 2009. Noel said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lived in the city for 30 years with her Oehrle husband Paul where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve raised their son, and her experience gives her insight to how the city works. Noel said she will always put residents first. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to keep city taxes down while staying focused on keeping our city services excellent,â&#x20AC;? Noel said. Stuart Oehrle, 45, is seeking a fifth term. Oehrle is a chemist for an instrument testing company and teaches at Northern Kentucky University. Oehrle said he brings an analytical thought process to council and his biggest priority is keeping the city fiscally sound. The city needs to continue not to

assess citizens for streets/sidewalks that the residents already are paying taxes for despite growth patterns flattening in the city, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very proud of the fact that the property tax rates for 10 years ago were higher than they were today,â&#x20AC;? Oehrle said. Adam Craig Sandfoss, a first time candidate for council, did not immediately respond to messages left with him. Jason Schnelle, 39, a financial analyst for Mammotome, said he wants to represent the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newer residents. With a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in accounting from NKU, and an M.B.A. from Xavier University, Schnelle said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well qualified. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also chairman of the Granite Spring Home Owners Association. Schnelle said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerned that as the city is maturing, the city has borrowed more than $1 million for city projects. Schnelle said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerned about keeping property taxes low and also that there has been talk on council this year of giving appropriate raises to the employees in city government at a time when most employers are either cutting

back or freezing employeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wages. Stephen Taylor, 55, said he wants to give back to his community and bring a fresh perspective to council. Taylor has been chairman of the city planning and zoning commission for five years, and on P&Z for seven years. Taylor said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s committed to continuing to protect property values, and that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a firm believer in limited government. Being a small business owner and his experience with multi-million budgets as a director at a Fortune 500 company makes him well qualified to be on council, Taylor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having served on Planning and Zoning, I am already familiar with most of the issues the city faces,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Voters will choose from among three newcomers and six veterans of city council in Cold Spring on the Nov. 2 ballot. For six council seats, there are nine candidates seeking the two-year term elected position. Lou Gerding, 61, a project manager and communications consultant, said his leadership experience of being on council for the last 20 years is valuable. Gerding said he wants to continue to support the police by giving them all the tools they need to protect the public, and taking care of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fiscal responsibilities without raising taxes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we need to control the spending, and continue the strategic plan, and also to replace the streets with no assessments on the property owners and at the same time keeping taxes in line,â&#x20AC;? Gerding said. David A. Guidugli, 58, was appointed this summer to fill the remainder of Janis Reimanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unexpired term. Guidugli, is retired and works part-time for a marketing company. Since 1994 he has spent 12 years on council. Guidugli said he wants the city to pursue more code enforcement and hire someone on a contract basis to do the work instead of the police chief doing the work as is now the case. Guidugli said he wants to continue the street replacement program at no assessment to property owners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All that stuff, I figure it helps keep our property values in line with where they need to be,â&#x20AC;? he said. Brenda Rodgers Helton, 53, a full-time caregiver and homemaker, was elected in 2008 and was on council from 1988-1998. Helton said she wants to make sure the city where she raised her children remains a nice place to live by sustaining the same level of police and other services. Helton said, as a woman, she brings a different perspective. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right or wrong, like it or not, we see things differently,â&#x20AC;? she said. Rob Moore, 44, owner of two businesses in the city including Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Garage, is seeking a fifth term on council. Moore said he wants to ensure police have all the equipment they need and maintain a tight budget. Moore said the city was able to borrow money at an interest rate of 2.9 percent for the street replacement program, an exceptionally good rate attained in part because of the economy, and also since the city is fiscally sound. The city also received better than expected construction bids on the street projects, so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a savings in moving some projects that werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t scheduled to be done until a year or two from now up to this year, he said. Kathy M. Noel, 57, worked as assistant city clerk from 1993 to 1998, served on planning and zoning in 1998, and was a member of council from

and fun to play with,” said Clegg, a Villa Hills resident. “That’s why I like doing what I do, because I get to be around them all the time.” Clegg, a student at Turkey Foot Middle, has been serving as a foster parent for Frankie’s Furry Friends Rescue, a small dog rescue center in Alexandria, since they opened in January. In that time, she’s taken in nine dogs and managed to adopt eight of them out, with Bristol, a quiet lovable Chihuahua, the newest to be searching for a permanent home. For a girl who also runs her own dog-sitting business, serving as a foster parent for dogs in need of some love has been a blast. “Before we got the first one, my mom and dad had to have a long talk, but they decided to let me do it, and it’s just been going since then,” recalled Allie. “I’m just glad I can help out and try to find some good homes for the dogs. Allie’s dad, David, said the burden of having an extra dog or two around the house actually hasn’t been much of a burden at all,

with the entire family pitching in to help out. The Cleggs also have two dogs of their own who haven’t minded the extra playmates. “It’s been a great experience for us, because all of our kids have done a great job of taking responsibility for them,” he said. David Clegg also said he’s been impressed with the way Allie has helped stick to the goal of being a foster parent – not necessarily an easy task for an 11year-old who loves animals. “She understands that the goal is to find them a new home and not keep them here,” he said. “The biggest thing we can do is to help socialize the dog so it’s ready for a new home, and that’s been the fun part for us.” Allie said that letting go of the foster dogs actually hasn’t been too hard, especially when she knows they’re headed to a good home. The length of the adoption process can vary, but she said the longest she’s ever had any foster dog has been about one month, with most of them finding homes fairly quickly.

JASON BRUBAKER/STAFF

Allie Clegg of Villa Hills holds Bristol, the latest foster dog she is trying to adopt out. Clegg, who also runs a dog-sitting business, has taken in nine foster dogs this year through Frankie’s Furry Friends Rescue, a small dog rescue center in Alexandria. “Once I see they’re in good hands with people who are going to love them, then I’m happy,” she said. “It’s a little sad to watch them go, but it makes it okay when you know they’re going to have a real home.” Kathy Thacker, the secretary of Frankie’s Furry Friends, said Allie’s efforts haven’t gone unnoticed. The center, which takes in dogs under 25 pounds, many from puppy mills, has adopted out close to 30 dogs since opening their doors in January. “If we had a prize for the most dogs adopted out, Allie would win it hands down,” said Thacker with a laugh. “She’s just a great girl with

a heart of gold - we can’t say enough about her and her family for what they’ve done.” For her part, Allie said she just wants to continue finding good homes for as many dogs as possible, and if that means taking on the sacrifice of a few more cuddly playmates around the house, so be it. “Sometimes I let them sleep in my bed with me,” she said, giggling. “It’s just fun to have them around the house and to know that we’re helping them out.” For more about Frankie’s Furry Friends Rescue, including photos of dogs available for adoption, visit www.frankiesfurryfriends. org or call 635-9114.

C o u n t y Oct. 14You’re like 18. ‘Wow, I want T h e to climb that B y r n e s routinely tree.’” offer guidShelly ed tree Byrne c l i m b i n g classes for both beginners and experienced climbers using ropes and safety harnesses at A.J. Jolly Park south of Alexandria and also at Hocking Hills in Rockbridge, Ohio. Shelly Byrne said they chose the Beechridge Conference Center because it has some of the most majestic trees in Kentucky. “They (the trees) really speak when you go there,” Byrne said. “You’re like ‘Wow, I want to climb that tree.’” Rendezvous participants will climb trees together and attend educational sessions on everything from a history of recreational tree climbing, rope work tips and tricks, and “Yoga in the Trees” and a “tree dancing” class.

It’s the first time the national tree climbing rendezvous has been in the Cincinnati area and it won’t be back again for a long while, said Shelly Byrne. Previously, the rendezvous has been in locations including Colorado and Mississippi and in the Redwood trees of Oregon. Unique activities at the rendezvous will include the setting up of a “tree boat village” where people can spend the night up in a tree

in special hammocks, Byrne said. There will also be a rescue course for advanced climbers and Jason Neumann, an experimental educational specialist for the Cincinnati Nature Center, will lead a vertical nature hike, she said. There are daily rates available for the rendezvous and opportunities for beginners who are new to tree climbing to come for a single day if they’re curious

about what it’s all about, Byrne said. “We get into the trees and play together and then what happens is we’re all laughing because you’re in the trees with nature and all these cool people,” she said.

Superintendent, schools on Facebook

By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

Campbell County Schools Superintendent Anthony Strong has his own Facebook fan page now. It’s not so much an attempt to be cool, but to connect with immediacy online as many students and parents often do already. Since the page was started near the beginning of September, Strong has posted photos of a dance at Grant’s Lick Elementary School and from a sports event he attended. He’s even posted the scores of athletic games. There’s also been more serious posts like clueing people into a meeting he was having with a group of parents about preventing high school dropouts. The Facebook page is still new, so the content is a work in progress, Strong said.

“I see it as a way for me to send out real quick, positive things because I can access Facebook from my phone as a contact,” he said. Strong said he can post links and people can comment on his posts, but can’t just post anything they want onto the pages “wall” because it’s a fan page. Strong said he’s always tried to be a superintendent who is accessible to the community and students. It’s great when students recognize teachers and administrators out in public, he said. That way the students feel comfortable enough that they can come up and talk to the administrator anytime, Strong said. It’s not his motivation to make students think he’s cool by starting the page, he said. “Certainly, I want them to feel like it’s an opportunity for them

because they are the people we serve, and kids obviously are on Facebook,” Strong said. In addition to Strong’s Facebook fan page, almost all of the district’s schools have fan pages including Campbell Ridge, Reiley and Grant’s Lick elementary schools and Campbell County Middle School, said Juli Hale, director of community relations for the district. The rest of the schools are working on their Facebook pages, Hale said. With so many people using the social media service already, it’s just another avenue to reach parents and, in some cases, students, she said. They can even receive notices through Facebook on their cell phones about last minute event announcements and programs on tight deadlines, Hale said. “We’re kind of meeting them where they are,” she said.

Love one another

Fourth-grade teacher Terri Shields of St. Joseph Cold Spring knows her students work better as a team when they take time to get to know and understand one another. To help foster that spirit of caring and concern for each other, the students work together in pairs to write acrostic poems about each other using their partner’s first name. They learn about each other’s lives, their likes and dislikes, and put this information in a poem which they share with the class. This process unites the class and instills the students with a spirit of charity, which allows them to work together better as a team, as a class, as one.

Career fair engaging entire high school By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

Students are frequently asked what type of career they’re interested in pursuing, and each fall a college and career fair at Campbell County High School helps students in grades 9-12 work on their answer. The high school is anticipating representatives from about 20

professions and officials from more than 25 colleges at the school’s annual college and career fair in the gym from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 19. “The thing is kind of for them to even start thinking about, is that something I want to do,” said Linda Bates, coordinator of the school’s Youth Service Center. Careers being represented will include a chef, judge, law enforce-

ment, various construction trades, professional sales, a dental assistant, and a composer and singer of songs, Bates said. The school is especially seeking a physical therapist to participate in the career fair, she said. Students will be required to go and speak with some of the career professionals so they can get an idea of if they are interested in that type of work and write down

their thoughts about the careers represented, Bates said. “Our goal this year is to have a questionnaire to where they have to interact with the people,” Bates said. Students will also be learning about what type educational paths match up well with specific career fields, she said. Hopefully, parents can talk to their children both before and after

the career fair, and start a conversation about the future, Bates said. “Really it will just create some dialogue between students and parents about where they want to go after high school,” she said. For details about volunteering at the school’s college and career field call Linda Bates at 635-4161 or e-mail Linda.Bates@campbell. kyschools.us.

Northern Kentucky University’s NorseMedia won four awards and one finalist recognition in the 2010 Philo T. Farnsworth Awards, an annual video competition that honors the best in community media productions from Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana and Michigan. Student producers from NKU entered their work into the highlycompetitive professional division. The awards were in the following

categories, with project title: Arts/Cultural Awareness, “The Historic Southgate House”; Webcast, “Walkthrough of the Southgate House”; Community Event Coverage, “Oktoberfest 2009”; and Computer-Generated Art/Animation, “Revelation Trail: Lilith’s Story, Act I.” The finalist recognition was in Arts/Cultural Awareness for “Faculty Art Show 2009.” The competition is coordinated by the Central States Region of the Alliance for Community Media.

Two separate grants for $950 from the Greater Cincinnati Foundation are helping to improve programs at St. Catherine of Siena. Principal Doug Lonneman said after years of budget cuts, teacher Dave Schlachter volunteered to put together a grant writing team, which has resulted in the school receiving $15,000 to $20,000 in grants in the past three years. “Doing everything it takes to write a grant is very time consuming, and Dave has really stepped up and the school has really benefited from his work,” Lonneman said. One of the most recent grants

received is going to benefit the school’s student news program, which began two years ago after the school received a grant from Best Buy that they were able to use to buy video equipment. Lonneman said after the students got involved in the program and started videotaping plays and news stories, they found that the sound quality was lacking because they had to use to camera’s internal microphone. “The grant will allow us to purchase a high quality video camera system that allows for external microphones to be used,” Lonneman said. “The kids are really excited to start taping a live TV news show soon.” The other grant from the foun-

dation is going towards the school’s Accelerated Reader program. Lonneman said the program used to be federally funded and that money was used to buy books for the school’s library. Now, because of these kinds of grants, the program will keep going and keep the kids excited about reading, Lonneman said. “Since St. Catherine has been involved in the Accelerated Reader program our students’ excitement about reading has been tremendous,” said Librarian Sue Perkins. “The grant we received toward new library books will enhance our library collection and add to the students’ enthusiasm for reading.”

Major changes in draft realignment By James Weber jweber@nky.com

The Kentucky High School Athletic Association released a draft football realignment for the 2011-14 seasons Monday, Oct. 4. The information related to the has been posted on the KHSAA web site at http://www.khsaa.org/football/realignment/20112014/. The KHSAA Board of Control will review the proposed alignment and address feedback from the member schools at its next regular meeting, scheduled for Oct. 18-19 at the KHSAA office in Lexington. If adopted, the draft alignment will begin with the 2011 football season with an opportunity for adjustment due to enrollment bounds after the 2012 season.

Bryan ties Mustangs on Senior Night By James Weber jweber@nky.com

As the famous phrase goes, a tie is like kissing your sister. For Kaitlin Bryan, a tie was just a way to preserve an unbeaten season at home for her “sisters” on the Campbell County girls’ soccer team. Bryan’s goal with less than two minutes remaining salvaged a 1-1 tie with rival Bishop Brossart Sept. 29. The Camels were undefeated at home this year with as the school honored Bryan and the other 10 seniors on the team before the game. “We were not accepting a loss tonight,” Bryan said. “We had a big group of 11 girls, and we were not accepting that at all. We haven’t lost on this field this season, so that motivated everybody.” Bryan, the Camels’ leading scorer the past two years, connected on her 10th goal of this year after a diving save by junior goalkeeper Megan Rauch. Rauch started a quick fast

break the other way, and Bryan won a one-on-one race with a Brossart defender before depositing the ball inside the right post. “We try quick transitionals at practice all the time,” Bryan said. “We all wanted to come out here and focus, do our best on the field, make sure we have good memories and not let anybody down.” Bryan also had a clutch second-half goal in a home tie against Newport Central Catholic. “One of our goals was not to lose at home,” said Camel head coach Dave Morris. “I don’t think any Campbell County team has done that. They don’t quit.” Campbell ended the game 8-5-4, Brossart 5-83. Abby Stadtmiller scored for Brossart. The tie kept the teams in a deadlock for third place in seeding for the 19th District Tournament. Newport Central Catholic and Highlands tied for first. Both ties will be broken by a coin flip. The district tourney is the week of Oct. 11.

Campbell County senior Kaitlin Bryan poses with her parents during Senior Night festivities before the teams’ 1-1 tie Sept. 29 at Campbell County. Campbell started the season 1-3 but has found its rhythm since the return of senior Carolynn Dreyer, a key leader on defense. She suffered a dislocated kneecap over the summer and has played the second half of the season with a big knee brace. “Since she’s come back we’ve had one loss,” Morris

said. “She leads the way on our defense.” Other seniors are Chelsea Strouse, Catrina Lloyd, Sydney White, Sarah Carroll, Megan Nehus, Anna Carrigan, Brittani Orth, Julie Ampfer and Bridget Donoghue. “We’re all really close,” Bryan said. “We do team bonding activities. We’ve all

been close for a long time.” Carrigan is second on the team with five goals. Rauch has seven shutouts. Brossart head coach Terry Bray is proud of the way his team has matured this season. The Mustangs have three seniors and two starters returning from last year in Maria Silbersack and Nicole Ridder. Stephanie Ritter and Carmen Enzweiler are other seniors and were honored at the Campbell game as well. Ritter played despite suffering bruised ribs in a car accident earlier that day. Stadtmiller and Silbersack were tied for team leadership with six goals apiece. “This has been a whole year of a learning experience,” said Bray, who led Holy Cross to the 2003 state final. “From July 15 until now, it’s been a great transformation. I’m really proud of them. We’re finishing better now and defending better. We were probably better defensively early, but now it has evened out.”

’09 success helps NewCath netters in ’10 By Adam Turer kysports@communitypress.com

At this time last year, Newport Central Catholic’s volleyball team was getting ready to embark on a surprising run to the state semifinals. This year, the postseason challenges will seem more familiar to the Thoroughbreds, who return several starters from last season’s team. The regular season has been a big challenge and the ’Breds were a slightly disappointing 11-14 heading into the final week of the regular season. Head coach Vicki Fleissner is hopeful that some of the regular season losses will translate to postseason victories.

“We played a real tough schedule and lost some tough matches,” Fleissner said. “We hope the tougher schedule will help us in the long run.” A five-set loss to Cincinnati Seton Saturday, Oct. 2 was an accurate snapshot of the Thoroughbreds’ 2010 season. Facing a quality opponent, the ’Breds battled before losing focus late and letting victory slip away. Playing power programs like Sacred Heart and Assumption (both losses) should also help NewCath as postseason play begins. “We gave up some tough victories early in the year,” Fleissner said. “We are still trying to fine-tune our mental toughness.” This year’s roster is deep with juniors who played

key roles as sophomores during the 2009 run to the state final four. There were some significant changes on the court. With an experienced and talented group returning, Fleissner and her staff worked on playing a more up-tempo style this season. The players are still working on fully adapting to the new system. “Most of our girls play club volleyball and can handle the quicker pace,” Fleissner said. “We’ve been trying a couple of new things defensively and implementing a quicker style of play.” The veteran leaders on the team complement one another. Junior setter Taylor Snyder runs the offense. Junior outside hitter Liz Gru-

enschlaeger provides a calming on court presence, according to Fleissner. Junior middle hitter Maggie O’Day has been putting her game together over the past few weeks. Outside hitter Sarah Suedkamp, the only senior starter, provides senior leadership. “We hope to have some role players step up over these next few weeks,” Fleissner said. The deep postseason run last year should help the Thoroughbreds as they begin postseason play Oct. 12 against Newport at Dayton. “The postseason experience that the girls got last year should help get rid of any nerves in District and Regional play,” said Fleissner. “I think our team has

the confidence that we can win any match and get back to state.”

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Vote for Rachford

I want to recommend Bill Rachford as the clear choice for mayor of Alexandria. Bill and I have known each other about five years. Our association has been via the Boy Scouts of America. We are Eagle Scouts and members of the local Eagle Scout Association. We’re both members of the Scholarship Committee. Bill has been committee chairperson since we met. It is our committees’ job to select one Eagle Scout each year to receive a college scholarship. His leadership through some tough decisions has been a calming force. As with any professional association you get to know those you work with on many levels. Bill’s integrity, caring nature and dedication to getting the job done in a quality manner is nothing short of exemplary. His professional career as a top insurance agent gave him financial skills and taught him the how to set goals and achieve them. I hesitate to mention religion in the political process these days; suffice it to say he leads a life that is true to his spiritual beliefs and is a role model for others. As a veteran I want to recognize his Air Force service and tell you he is a true patriot. There is nothing I would not trust Bill to do and do well. I enjoy working with him and fully support him as your next mayor. Jim Peterman Union

Kidwell is best choice for constable

It is important for us to keep service-minded professionals in office, even when there’s no salary and benefits attached. Jeff Kidwell is that kind of servant with many years of experience and service to the law enforcement community. I have known Jeff for many years, and he is firmly committed to supporting the public safety community. Jeff donates countless hours of service and he is endorsed by the Campbell County FOP. Let’s keep professionalism in District 1 and keep Kidwell. Kevin Sell Alexandria

Scout thanks for Cash for Trash Program

I would like to take the time to thank the Northern Kentucky Solid Waste Department for hosting the Cash for Trash Program. The boys and young men in Scout Troop 75 from Alexandria along with adult volunteers cleaned up five miles of roads in southern Campbell County. What was surprising and scary was the amount of beer cans found along the roads. The roads that we cleaned up last year had less new trash; maybe by keeping our roads clean the more people will care. The money earned from the work will go into each boy’s Scout account to be used for Scout-related actives, such as summer camp and camp outings and equipment. I would also like to thank David Plummer, Campbell Solid Waste coordinator, for his help and aid in working with my troop for the Trash for Cash Program.

Reds success more fun as a child Knowing the Cincinnati Reds had a chance to clinch the National League Central Division title with a victory on the night of Sept. 28, my wife and I dressed our 10-month-old daughter in her Reds sleeper that evening. We tuned into the game on television just in time for the bottom of the ninth to see Jay Bruce hit his division-winning home run to center field. (Yes, that late my daughter was still awake.) Though she’ll be too young to remember this season, the Reds making it back to baseball’s postseason for the first time in 15 years reminds me of when they last won the World Series. The year was 1990 and I’ll never be able to enjoy a team’s postseason run as much as I did then. The reason is simple: Back then I had the innocence of youth. I was 11 years old going on 12. I was a sixth-grader with very few responsibilities and worries. And I’m glad I was that young to enjoy the Reds championship that year. If I had been older, it wouldn’t have been as much fun. There’s something special and genuine about youth. Though I never attended any of

the 10 postseason games the Reds played that year, I followed it intently. I probably even kept score of the games as I watched them on television. Back Paul then Major McKibben League Baseball Reporter’s still played some its postseason Notebook of games in the afternoon before everything had to be on prime time television. Game 2 and Game 3 of the National League Championship Series were afternoon games. I’m sure as soon as I got home from school, the television immediately was turned onto those games. Baseball should have more afternoon playoff games. I’m sure it wouldn’t make as much television revenue but the sport would be more accessible to its most important audience – youth. Other memories of that 1990 Reds October include my mom taking my brother and I to White Castle to celebrate the Reds winning the World Series. We kept each edition of The Cincinnati

COUNTY RECORDER

Enquirer that chronicled each game. We had T-shirts for each title the Reds won that year (NL Western Division, National League pennant and the World Series). For Halloween that year I dressed as a Reds fan. I wore a red World Series champions T-shirt with a small broom around my neck. The broom of course represented the Reds sweeping the Oakland Athletics in the World Series. My face was painted red and white. This year, I’ll try to watch parts of the games. And I’ll continue to think of my maternal grandparents who followed the Reds with more loyalty than I did as a child. I know they are already celebrating from above. And if it’s a true Reds October, maybe I’ll bust out another Reds fan Halloween costume for myself as I take my daughter trick-ortreating for the first time. (She’s going as a red-and-black lady bug.) Go Reds. Paul McKibben covers Boone County for The Community Recorder. You can reach him at pmckibben@nky.com or by phone at 859-578-1057.

Stealing political signs against the law In the past, this office has received contacts asking that an article be done concerning stealing political signs from homeowners’ lawns. Many people seem to feel that taking or damaging a political sign is not a criminal offense but rather that it just sort of goes with the territory of political campaigns. However, that is not the case. A theft of a political sign is no different than the theft of any other personal property. Under Kentucky law, a person is guilty of theft by unlawful taking if he takes or exercises control over moveable property of another with intent to deprive that person of the property. This would certainly include political signs as well as any other property. Taking a political sign out of someone’s front yard is no less of a theft than taking a chair off of the porch. Theft of property under Kentucky law is a Class A misdemeanor if the item has a value of less than $500 dollars and is pun-

We sometimes see political signs being sprayed with paint, conveying various negative messages. Such conduct would constitute criminal mischief in the third degree under Kentucky law which is a Class B misdemeanor punish-

able by up to a fine of $250 and up to ninety days in jail. During this “silly season” of political campaigns prior to the election on Nov. 2, all candidates and their workers and supporters should understand that defacing or taking political signs is criminal conduct and will be prosecuted as such. It is certainly frustrating and aggravating to put so much time and work into putting up political signs only to have them damaged or stolen. All campaigns should take the high road of supporting the candidate of choice versus trashing an opponent, especially relative to trashing or taking an opponent’s signs. I hope this information is interesting and helpful.

Empty churches, crowded pathways and loneliness Over most of my many years as a priest, when I offered Sunday Mass it was done in a crowded church. Sometimes only standing room. No longer is that so except for Christmas and Easter. The Cincinnati Enquirer (Sept. 19, 2010) carried a front page story about diminishing Mass attendance in Catholic churches. Except for non-denominational groups, many Christian churches are experiencing the same problem. More than one-quarter of American adults have left the faith of their childhood. So says the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life based on reviews with 35,000 adults. The people who are not at church on Sunday are not at home brooding over the church’s faults. They are sleeping, shopping at the mall, working in their yard, having team practices, jogging, walking, watching football or baseball, etc. They want the church to be there when they want it, even if they do not want it very often. These are not bad people. There is no conscious conspiracy against going to church, values and spirituality. What is happening is

that a number of important factors have been happening over the last 50 years that Father Lou h a v e Guntzelman brought us this Perspectives to point. Now it has become difficult not just to think about God or to pray, but to have any interior depth whatsoever. Father Ronald Rolheiser writes, “It is not that we have anything against God, depth and spirit, it is just that we are habitually too preoccupied to have any of these show up on our radar screens. We are more busy than bad, more distracted than nonspiritual, and more interested in the movie theater, the sports stadium, and the shopping mall and the fantasy life they produce than we are in church.” Besides this busyness and preoccupation, another significant factor that has “gotten to us” is individualism. After countless centuries, the modern world is shifting from being ruled by the power of the mace and the miter. Now spiritual

Fraud alert one way to prevent identity theft One of the most popular ways for criminals to steal your identity is to try to get a credit card in your name. If they succeed they can run up thousands of dollars in charges, and you may not find out until the thief has fled. Amy Winegardner of Wyoming suspected someone was trying to steal her identity when a financial company notified her about a credit card for which she had never applied. “I got a letter saying my husband and I had applied for a credit card and that we were declined. I would never had applied for one, and I’m like surprised,” she said. Winegardner was not only surprised but a little worried too about what such a credit application really means. “I think somebody got information on me and applied for a credit card and … but my credit’s not the best so it was declined – which was great,” she said. This is not the first time something like this has happened. “In 2008 there was (an unauthorized) withdrawal out of my checking account from a German file hosting company,” Winegardner said. I had Winegardner check her credit report on the Internet. She said she hadn’t checked it in quite a while. She needed to look for unusual things like unauthorized credit card applications and accounts. Winegardner checked and found nothing out of the ordinary. However, because someone did try to open a credit card in her name, she filed a fraud alert with the credit bureau. She says she never realized this was an action she could and should take. “No, I didn’t until we

were reading the ‘ requently a s k e d q u e s tions.’ Like it said, the initial alert Howard Ain is for 90 Hey Howard! days and t h e extended one is for seven years.” You can place an extended fraud alert on your credit bureau report if you’ve been the victim of identity theft and provide the credit bureau with a police identity theft report. Fraud alerts prevent an identity thief from opening any accounts in your name. You only need to contact one of the three credit reporting companies to have an alert placed on all their reports. When a business sees the alert it must first verify your identity before issuing credit. Be advised, this may cause some delays if you apply for credit. You should check your credit report yearly and can do so for free at www.annualcreditreport.com. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

authority is seen as especially being held in the hands of the individual person and his or her conscience. “Habits of the Heart” is a successful book first published in the mid-1980s. One of its chief observations was the growing number of youth and adults who looked to themselves alone as the possessors of spiritual truth, not organized religion. As a result of this book, a study was done. One of the participants in the study was Sheila Larson, a young nurse. She expressed her idea of religion and spirituality thus: “I believe in God. I’m not a religious fanatic. I can’t remember the last time I went to church. My faith has carried me a long way. It’s Sheilaism. Just my own little voice.” So succinctly did she verbalize extreme individualism that ever since the name Sheilaism designates many who live their lives accordingly. The spirituality revolution that is going on assumes that the individual knows best. The idea is that a person who is independent of organized religion and from centuries of religious indoctrination and

tradition, becomes more free and truly spiritual. They bristle at authoritative approaches to their personal spirituality and relationship with God. Individualism usually leads to isolation and loneliness. It encourages us to think of ourselves as selfsufficient and self-enclosed. What is lost is a sense of communal togetherness, support during stressful times of life and death, and the absence of fulfilling rituals of passage such as bap-

tisms, weddings, funerals, etc. As the years go by and questions about life and death multiply, extreme individualists experience an increasing spiritual illiteracy. They lack a fuller and sustaining grasp of crucial beliefs such as baptism, the incarnation, resurrection, redemption, and an adult understanding of scripture. Authoritarianism and poor education by church leaders, and individualism and lack of openness by

church members, are the two things that will keep lessening the effectiveness of religion in our day. God’s Spirit is trying to lead us forward. Let’s not drag our feet.

Tempt them with some homemade apple rollups Today’s the first day of autumn and even though the temperature is at an alltime high, it still feels like fall outside, what with the leaves falling from the trees and Rita crinkling underfoot, Heikenfeld and the Rita’s kitchen apples ripening on our tree. (We don’t have many apples this year, and I have to be vigilant about picking them before the deer find them). And I’ve had a slew of requests to make homemade applesauce and “fruit rollups like you buy but without all the artificial stuff.” I’m happy to say I can help on both counts!

Homemade applesauce, fruit rollups/leather

I make this from apples, but pears work well, too. Making your own lets you be in control of the amount of sugar, if any, you add.

To see my online video for making homemade applesauce, check out my blog at Cincinnati.com.

Pink Ribbon lunch

What: Ninth annual pink ribbon program and luncheon with Cat Cora. Where: Duke Energy Convention Center, downtown Cincinnati When: Monday, Oct. 4, at noon Details: Visit www.pinkribbonluncheon.org or call 1-866-577-7465.

Preparation:

Wash, core and cut 3 to 5 pounds of fruit into chunks (apples or pears). Leave skin on because the pectin in the peel helps remove cholesterol.

Cooking options:

Crockpot – Spray pot. Put fruit in. Cook on low for six to eight hours or high for three to five hours until fruit is soft enough to mash. Stovetop – Place in heavy or nonstick large pot. Add up to 1 cup water, cider or apple juice (to keep fruit from sticking), and simmer until fruit is soft. You may have to add a bit more liquid. Careful – the mixture tends to sputter up. Oven – (my preferred method). I use a restaurant steam table pan but use anything that has sides and which will hold fruit. Spray pan. Cook in 350-degree oven until soft.

To purée:

Run through food mill or sieve, blender or food processor. Or just chunk up with a potato masher. If

Storing:

Day three of making homemade fruit rollup. desired, sweeten to taste with sugar or a substitute. I usually don’t add any sweetener. Add cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice to taste. Do this while fruit is still warm. Now you have the best tasting applesauce ever!

Drying to make fruit rollups/leather:

Spray cookie sheets. Pour puree evenly onto sheets, about 1⁄4-inch deep. I dry mine in the sun. (I’ll cover with cheesecloth if bees are a problem and bring it in at night or if it rains). It takes about three

days to make the rollups. You can also dry it in a warm oven. Mine only goes down to 170 so I prop the door open. You don’t want it to cook too quickly or it will be hard. It will take anywhere from four to eight hours or more depending upon the kind of apples, etc. If it’s late in the evening and it’s still not done, turn the oven off with the leather still in, and proceed in the morning.

How to tell if leather is done:

It should pull up from the pan in one sheet.

Local artist demonstrates oil painting in Berea

PROVIDED

Readers on vacation

Chloe Clements, 5, of Southgate vacationed with Shannon Daniels of Fort Thomas in Cocoa Beach, Fla.

Mark Downey of Alexandria will demonstrate oil painting from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea Saturday, Oct. 23. Downey was born and raised in the state of Washington and began creating images of the natural world in third grade, when he produced 30 depictions of western birds with crayons. He began painting the scenery of the Pacific Northwest at the age of 15 when a high school art teacher mentored and kindled his passion for capturing nature with paint. Downey’s early career began as an Army illustrator in Vietnam, which led to a magazine illustration job

in Los Angeles. He worked as a freelance commercial artist for many years, as well as doing illustrations for children’s books. In 2005 Downey moved to Kentucky where the bluegrass landscape attracted his attention. Downey has been painting for more than 40 years focusing on ‘realism’ and the depiction of regional landscapes and indigenous wildlife. He refers to his paintings as ‘traditional realism’ and his subject matter is researched in the field. While he sometimes paints onsite, he also takes his drawings and research back to the studio for preparation and composition. Many hours are spent on

The center’s exhibits, shopping, and travel information areas are all open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The café is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Admission is free.

The challenge was issued when Jeff Wyler, CEO of one of the nation’s largest volume dealership groups, decided to donate $100 from the proceeds of every vehicle sold during the month of August from every Tri-state Jeff Wyler dealership with a goal of reaching $100,000. The goal was reached. Local organizations were encouraged by a media campaign to submit their requests to the website of the Wyler Family Foundation a 501(c)3 organized in 2009 by Jeff Wyler and his family. Last week, the members of the Wyler Family Foundation met and chose 36 worthy causes to support. Letters of congratulations and donations in the form of checks ranging in value from $250 to $20,000 have been mailed. “As members of this community, my family believes it is important to give back to the area that helped build our business and enriches all of our lives,” Wyler said. “The last several years have not been easy for the automotive sector, and fortunately, we’ve made many correct decisions along the way, but the economic slowdown has seriously impacted local charitable organizations’ donations. These organizations needed help now, and these donations will help them fund their programs. My only regret is we had to deny some requests due to the volume of response. I sincerely wish all of the organizations the very best.” “It is easy to pride ourselves on our people, our brands, our seven local locations, and our customer service, but to be able to call somebody up and tell them that we have a couple thousand dollars for their efforts is very rewarding, we hope to do it again,” said David Wyler, president.

The Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society awarded Honorable Mention to Sam Hollingsworth of Newport for his work “Pollock’s BMW 1955.” The prize was given at the annual show Sept. 19, at Evergreen Retirement Community, 230 Galbraith Road in Cincinnati.

will Industries plans a “stand down” event Friday, Oct. 1, at the Bellevue Veterans Club, in Northern Kentucky. The purpose of the event is to draw attention to the needs of homeless veterans and to offer a variety of services for these individuals. Activities will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The phrase “stand down” comes from an old military term relating to a time that military personnel can have their personal needs attended to. During the event veterans will have the opportunity to receive services from more than 30 service providers including: Medical, dental,

eye care, social services, employment, career opportunities, legal aid and expungement. Members of the Veterans Administration will be available to provide benefits counseling. A free hot lunch will be provided from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. An opening ceremony will take place at 9 a.m. at the Veterans Club. This year’s event is being sponsored by Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries, the Bellevue Veteran’s Club, the Northern Kentucky One Stop, and the Cincinnati Veterans Administration. Goodwill Industries has been offering services to

NKY to participate in breastfeeding competition NKY to participate in breastfeeding competition Local mothers will breastfeed together in an effort to gather the most breastfeeding moms in one location. At 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 2, a call will go out to “latch on,” and the mothers and babies gathered at the Boone County Extension will begin to breastfeed. Runners will circulate around the room to count them as part of a worldwide contest to see which loca-

tion can gather the most breastfeeding babies at one time. The Northern Kentucky Breastfeeding Challenge 2010 will take place from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 2, at the Boone County Extension, 6028 Camp Ernst Road, Burlington. It is sponsored by the Northern Kentucky Breastfeeding Coalition. Besides the breastfeeding count at 11 a.m., the event will also feature information on local breastfeeding

resources, a raffle and snacks. Only 54 percent of Kentucky babies born in 2009 were ever breastfeed, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Only Louisiana had a lower breastfeeding rate. Mothers who plan to participate in the Oct. 2 challenge are asked to register in advance on the Health Department’s website at www.nkyhealth.org or by calling Nancy Merk at 859363-2113.

The speakers are two industry leaders – Arlene Herman and Tricia Burke, co-CEOs of LifePoint Solutions, a merger of Family Service and Clermont Counseling Center. Prior to the merger, Herman was president of Family Service and Burke was executive director of Clermont Counseling Center. They will discuss their merger process and several examples of collaboration that were in place prior to the merger. To register for the seminar, visit NKU Connections at http://tiny.cc/nkumergers.

Spring forward this fall by planting bulbs If you’d like to light up your yard next spring, fall is the time to do it! Fall is the time to plant spring flowering bulbs such as tulips, daffodils (becoming more and more popular as they are tough, durable, come back every year, usually consistent bloomers, great for naturalizing, and the deer and squirrels typically leave them alone), crocus, hyacinths, fritilaria, giant alliums, minor bulbs and more. Spring flowering bulbs are planted in the fall, as they need a period of cold temperatures before they will bloom.

So planting in October and November gets them rooted in, and of course, the Ron Wilson winter perigives In the od garden them the cold temperatures. The many different colors and flowering times in today’s bulb world are outstanding; so do anticipate doing a little homework, to plan your assortment of spring colors as well as flowering times to extend

the spring bulb season. With proper planning, you can have spring colors from late winter to late spring. Now, here are a few tips when planting spring bulbs: • When purchasing your bulbs at your favorite local independent garden store, take time to read the labels for planning your color periods. Check your bulbs for firmness, and be sure to pick the larger bulbs, as they’ll typically flower better the first season. • Most bulbs will require at least half day of sun, and generally prefer a welldrained soil. Be sure to use

Pine Soil Conditioner, compost, etc, if needed, to help amend the soil in the planting area. • Plant the larger bulbs (tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, etc.) about 6 to 8 inches deep, pointed side up. Minor bulbs should be planted about 3 to 4 inches deep. And, unless your soil is lose and loamy, forget those hand bulb planters. Use a long-handled bulb planter, solid trowel, bulb drill, or spade for planting spring bulbs. • Be sure to feed your bulbs now with a good grade bulb food, like Espoma’s Bulb Food. Feed now,

and feed again next spring. • And when you’re finished planting, water your bulbs well, and water every seven to 10 days if we have a dry fall. • One last tip about planting bulbs. Plant them in clusters or mass plantings. This gives the garden a nicer, fuller show in the spring. Never, no never, plant your spring bulbs in a row like little toy soldiers! And if rodents are a problem, try using rodent repellents, or try placing chicken wire over the planting areas to help prevent digging.

Lycoris (“Naked Ladies”) sold this time of the year. Go ahead and plant those right away, but for the rest of your bulbs, buy now for the best selection, but wait for October and November for planting. Light up your landscape next spring – plant bulbs!

Located in a warehouse at 241 Grandview Ave., the store gives customers to a chance to see displays and buy merchandise from the displays. “We want our customers to be able to see how they can use our items to decorate their homes, and how they can display our products,” said Manager Linda Barbian. “We have a little bit of everything from furniture and rugs to floral pieces, art and decor.” Barbian said the business also offers consultations and help with paint selection and window treatments. “We are a complete design center,” Barbian

Courage is doing the good we’re afraid to do Courage doesn’t always involve brawn and muscles. It does involve a strength of character and integrity. It causes us to reach for rightness even in the face of fear, disapproval or overwhelming odds. The word courage arose from the Latin word cor, meaning heart. To have courage, “you gotta have heart,” as an old song lyricized. Courage is the virtue crucified in the middle between two thieves – cowardice and rashness. Cowardice is running away from all dangers and hard times; rashness is facing danger in a careless way that masks self-centered motives. In the past, courage was chiefly associated with men. It was seen in the risks they took during battle to defeat an enemy, help a fellow soldier, or defend innocent people. Now, with a better understanding of courage, we don’t hesitate to attribute it in various bold and subtle ways to women as well. To be courageous involves three general characteristics: (a) a willful and intentionally chosen act despite the presence of fear;

(b) it involves substantial danger, difficult, or risk to the person choosing Father Lou it; (c) it is Guntzelman primarily Perspectives motivated to bring about a noble good or morally worthy purpose. How many kinds of courage are there? Three types are acknowledged. Physical courage. It is overcoming the fear of physical harm or possible death for the sake of a noble goal such as defense of country or our family, or to save someone from danger or criminal threats. For example, we hear in the news of a man or woman risking their life to pull someone from a burning car. Recently a captain posthumously received the Medal of Honor for risking his life while placing his wounded men in a helicopter. Moral courage. This is overcoming the fear of social ostracism or rejection in order to maintain ethical integrity.

For example, the history of civil rights recalls the day Rosa Parks, a southern black woman, took a seat in the front of a bus when a prejudiced society said “her place” was in the back. This type of moral courage can occur in many different situations. It happens whenever an individual stands up to someone with power over him or her, and does so for the greater good. The result is the risk of social disapproval from others. Psychological, or vital, courage. Within the past 150 years a third kind of courage has been recognized by psychologists. It means overcoming the fear of losing one’s psyche (the feeling that one is disintegrating within – colloquially, losing it.) It can occur as we struggle against the fear of disintegration or death while trying to achieve greater wholeness and mental health. It is the kind of courage demonstrated by an addict overcoming his or her addiction; or a person abused as a child working to overcome deep psychological fears to become a loving and productive adult. Why focus on courage

today? In “The Psychology of Courage,” edited by Pury & Lopez, it’s stated: “It is increasingly difficult to face an unpredictable future without being able to call on courage if needed.” Over the years I have been honored to meet many people of courage. They weren’t publicly known because for us ordinary people our most noteworthy victories occur within, out of view of camera, newsprint and applause. At times we may be the only one who knows that they exist. To all these wonderful and victorious people I apply the following anonymous quotation: “Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow.’” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

There’s a chicken in every pot pie recipe

I know whenever a request comes in for anything about Shillito’s recipes served in their former restaurants, it spawns a huge flood of “can you find this recipe, or that?” So I wasn’t surprised when Irene Johnson’s original request for Shilllito’s chicken pot pie opened the floodgates.

Shillito’s individual chicken pot pie

I was so happy to get this recipe from Amelia reader Mary Frank. “I’m glad I could help,” she said. Me, too! This recipe comes from one printed in the Enquirer a

while back by Jeff Pipes, former Lazarus Interior Design Studio manager. 1

⁄8 cup frozen peas 3 ⁄4 cup frozen sliced carrots 6 cooked pearl onions 1 ⁄2 cup (3 oz.) diced cooked chicken – 1⁄2-inch to 3 ⁄4-inch chunks 3 ⁄4 cup sauce 1 to 2 oz. pastry, to cover pie Cook frozen peas and carrots and drain. Put chicken into small casserole and add veggies. Pour sauce over and bake at 350 degrees until bubbly. Serve with pastry top over casserole dish. (I’m assuming you bake the pas-

try separate). Makes one pie.

Pot pie sauce:

If you remember the sandwich as being a bit spicy, go ahead and add some chili powder.

Melt margarine, add flour and mix well. Add stock, cook and stir until creamy. Add pepper.

21⁄2 pounds ground beef 1 ⁄2 cup chopped onion 1 ⁄4 cup chopped bell pepper Salt and pepper 1 tablespoon dry mustard 1 tablespoon cider vinegar or more to taste 13⁄4 cup ketchup 2 tablespoons sugar or more to taste

3 tablespoons margarine 11⁄2 tablespoons flour 1 cup chicken stock/broth Dash pepper

Shillito’s Café sandwich (Seven Hills sloppy Joes)

I have researched this recipe for years and found that the original spice mixture used in the sandwich was a commercial one and, alas, can’t be found anymore.

Fifteen-minute peanut butter fudge

For the lady in Milford who wanted a peanut butter fudge “without marshmallow cream.” She told me her mom had a recipe for just such a fudge, but she can’t find it. This is from “Cook’s Illustrated,” my food “bible.” Now, my own recipe like this is almost identical, except it doesn’t have baking soda and I just melt everything in a pan and pour it into a sprayed 8-by-8 square pan. (It’s an easy and good one – my grandson, Will, made the chocolate version of the fudge and won a blue

ribbon at the fair). I’m thinking, though, that the baking soda is smart addition, as that is what probably makes the texture of this fudge so good. Makes about 21⁄2 pounds. This fudge will change texture and become drier the longer it is stored. Store the fudge, tightly wrapped in plastic, in a cool place for up to two weeks or in the freezer for three months. If frozen, allow ample time to let it reach room temperature before cutting. 18 oz. peanut butter chips 1 ⁄2 teaspoon baking soda 1 ⁄8 teaspoon salt 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Cut 12-inch length extrawide heavy-duty aluminum foil; fold edges back to form 71⁄2-inch width. With folded sides facing down, fit foil securely into bottom and up sides of 8inch-square baking pan, allowing excess to overhang pan sides. Spray foil with nonstick cooking spray. Toss peanut butter chips, baking soda, and salt in medium heatproof bowl until baking soda is evenly dis-

tributed. Stir in sweetened Rita condensed Heikenfeld milk and vanilla. Rita’s kitchen S e t bowl over 4-quart saucepan containing 2 cups simmering water. Stir with rubber spatula until chips are almost fully melted and few small pieces remain, two to four minutes. Remove bowl from heat and continue to stir until chips are fully melted and mixture is smooth, about two minutes. Transfer fudge to prepared pan and spread in even layer with spatula. Refrigerate until set, about two hours. Remove fudge from pan using foil and cut into squares. Double batch: Line 13 by 9-inch pan with two sheets of foil placed perpendicular to each other and double amounts of all ingredients. In Step 2, use large heatproof bowl and Dutch oven containing 4 cups simmering water.

CE-0000425965

distributed to local neighbors in need. During the “Dog Days” of August, Papa John’s Pizza donated more than 30 air conditioners to bring relief to all of the families and elderly residents who were still on the waiting list, which allowed for a break from the heat.

The goal for this year’s fan drive was to collect 500 fans and 100 air conditioners to help provide proper cooling and ventilation to those in need this summer, many of whom are the elderly, the sick and children with asthma and other chronic problems. This year, as a result of

the prolonged economic slump, many families were seeking help for the first time. “Thanks to the generosity of our corporate partners and local individuals, we have exceeded our goal and helped more than 800 families this summer,” said Liz Carter, executive director of

St. Vincent de Paul. She continued, “A fan or air conditioner is often the difference between living comfortably or an emergency room visit.” Thift stores are located at 712 Sixth Ave., in Dayton and at 906 Monmouth St., in Newport. Both location accept donations until 5

p.m. Monday through Saturday. The Dayton location is closed Thursdays.

Honorable Mayor and Council Silver Grove, Kentucky INDEPENDENT AUDITORS’ REPORT We have audited the accompanying basic financial statements of the City of Silver Grove, Kentucky, as of June 30, 2010, and for the year then ended, as listed in the table of contents. These basic financial statements are the responsibility of the City of Silver Grove, Kentucky’s management. Our responsibility is to express our opinion on these basic financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America and the standards applicable to financial audits contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall basic financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the basic financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the City of Silver Grove, Kentucky as of June 30, 2010, and the results of its operations and the cash flows of the proprietary fund type for the year then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

COLLEGE CORNER Bowling awarded Genetics Education Research Grant

A local Biology Assistant Professor, Bethany Bowling, PhD, from Northern Kentucky University (NKU), was recently awarded the first genetics education grant from the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) under its new Genetics Education Research Program. The primary goal of ASHG’s Genetics Education Research Program (GERP)is to promote genetic literacy among teachers and students by supporting research related to genetics education in U.S. schools, grades 7-20. Bowling is an Assistant Professor in the Biological Sciences Department at Northern Kentucky University. Her research interests center broadly on biology education and human genetics, and her current research in these topic areas focuses on understanding students’ misconceptions and improving instruction and curricula in genetics.
