Austin’s aim – retain and create jobs By Chris Mayhew

Despite becoming an insider in local politics, John Austin believes his perspective as an outsider, being a native of Albuquerque, N.M., can help him succeed in his role in helping create and retain jobs in Campbell County. In August, Austin, 28, became the new president of the nonprofit Campbell County Economic Progress Authority that has a focus of acquiring and retaining properties for development. “As a newcomer, I bring an objective point-of-view to this position,” Austin said. “I am not restricted by any preconceived notions about the positives or negatives in Campbell County.” Austin said the authority’s first priority today is job creation and retention and wealth generation for the county. To do that, Austin said his top focus is on working with existing businesses. “I see a lack of a coordinated effort in that area,” he said. Another priority is making sure


John Austin, president of the Campbell County Economic Progress Authority, will move across the street to the nearly completed county administration building in November from his Newport office at 1010 Monmouth St. that the authority plays a role in working to identify and ready properties in the county that the Tri-County Economic Development Corporation (Tri-Ed) can then prioritize and market to companies looking for land where they can operate. Austin arrived in Campbell County in 2007 after graduating from the University of Dayton Law School where he had met his

wife, a native of Alabama. Together, they decided to move to Northern Kentucky, a place neither of them had any connections to, because they enjoyed the big city attractions yet could still feel like they were living in the country without having to move far from the urban core. Austin first took a job with the Campbell County Fiscal Court as the senior policy advisor and gov-

ernment relations manager. Part of the job was also to assist the president of the economic progress authority. Austin was also dispatched to Frankfort to be the county government’s liaison with legislators. Austin knows the political landscape of the county and Kentucky, and also how to navigate it, said Fred Macke, chairman of the economic progress authority. Macke said he was thrilled the authority found a position for Austin. Macke, a real estate agent, said he’s already been working with Austin on real estate deals for the authority, and development and environmental issues in the process of helping uncover suitable sites for commercial and industrial development. Austin’s legal training, commitment to public service, and experience with researching written and human sources make him an ideal president for the authority, and he’s committed to public service, said Campbell County Judge-executive Steve Pendery.

Organizers prepare for Tour of Homes By Amanda Joering Alley The Charities Guild of Northern Kentucky (CGNK) is gearing up for the 2009 Fort Thomas Tour of Homes. The tour, which features seven historical homes in the city, is from noon to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24. “We have seven different houses on the tour with a really fantastic mix of styles and historical backgrounds,” said Courtney Shannon, president of the CGNK. The houses include a Swiss

Chalet style house built in 1908, a 1892 house featuring federal and Victorian architecture, a brick American foursquare built in 1907, a restored 1929 house, a 1918 house built and lived in by architect E.A. Weber, a 1890 Victorian house, a Tudor-inspired brick house and a 1900 house now used for the Fort Thomas Military and Community Museum. The event serves as a fundraiser to benefit the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center as well as the CGNK Shoe Fund. “Unfortunately with the current economic downturn both

charities have seen an increase in demand for their services and a decrease in donations,” Shannon said. “We really need to fill that gap.” The tour, which is $25 per person, includes a reception at the Fort Thomas Community Center featuring food from local restaurants, beverages, a silent auction and raffles. Tickets can be purchased online at, at the Citizen’s Bank at 34 North Fort Thomas Ave., through a CGNK member or at the Community Center the day of the event.

Crestview’s continued effort to revamp the city’s public places turned a worn-down baseball field into a park that’s kicking with the completion of a new soccer field. Crestview, with fewer than 500 residents, is next to Cold Spring, and has only a few short streets in the city limits. The rejuvenated ballfield, located off Pine Hill Drive, was one of several public spaces projects commissioners have pushed to get done recently, said Mayor Karen Bond. “For years it’s kind of like a diamond in the rough,” Bond said of the field. The ballfield had been neglected during the years, and nobody was using the city’s only recreation park, said Commissioner Shane Owens. “Every city needs a park,” Owens said. “There’s just nowhere for kids to hang out and do anything unless they go up to Cold Spring and their park.” The hope is to eventually build a shelter at the park residents can use for birthday or graduation parties, and also to build playground equipment, Owens said. “We hope the new soccer facility and walking trail instill pride in Crestview residents,” Sparks said. “Being able to give a little back to the county is also very important to us.”

Family hooks reunion to homestead By Chris Mayhew

Descendants of the late Peter and Philomena Neltner found their family’s Campbell County homestead farm and fishing lake to be the perfect place to visit for a reunion. More than 265 descendants spanning four generations of the Neltner family went back to their late ancestor’s property where

Duck Creek Country Club in Silver Grove is now on a late September Sunday afternoon to reminisce and reconnect. Sunday afternoons were traditionally the day the family all got together on the property to work and socialize at the pay lake, said Terry Neltner, 52, of Cold Spring, a granddaughter of Peter and Philomena Neltner, who had six children.

The Neltner’s family farm was also a pay fishing lake for more than 20 years starting in the 1950s after the state took some of the family’s ground to put a new bridge for Ky. 8 across a backwater area. In the 1960s, the state took more of the family’s property, including their house, to build Ky. 1998 (Industrial Road). “I just remember all our times on Sundays,” Terry said. “It was always family day.” There was always a big sit down meal with the entire family, and there was always Rock n’ Roll on the jukebox, especially Elvis, she said. Terry said her grandmother was always trying to give the children an ice cream or soda despite her parents telling her to

never ask for anything and watching to see if they did. “Grandma would sit there with a root beer saying anything you want, and dad was just looking at you,” she said. Although the property is vastly different, and the lake at the top of the hill beyond Duck Creek isn’t used much anymore, it was still the perfect place to have the reunion, Terry said. The family has had reunions at other locations during the years, but it wasn’t like going home. So, the family decided to rent out the country club for a day. Many of the family members made special family recipes passed down over the generations including grandma’s oatmeal raisin cookies, Terry said.

Davis honored by crisis center U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis was awarded the Amy Jones Outstanding Advocate Award from the Women’s Crisis Center (WCC) of Northern Kentucky. The award is presented to individuals who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in the effort to reduce domestic violence in Northern Kentucky. Selection criteria include leadership, demonstrated impact and recognition among peers. Davis was presented the award during the WCC’s Day of Peace celebration. “Congressman Davis’ tireless dedication to fighting domestic violence makes him an ideal candidate to receive the Amy Jones Outstanding Advocate Award. Having heard him speak candidly about his own experiences with domestic violence in the past, the Women’s Crisis Center knew that he was personally invested in this cause,” said WCC Senior Public Education Specialist and Chair of the Day of Peace planning committee Ann Brandon. The Day of Peace celebration is an annual event held to promote peacemaking and reduce violence in families, neighborhoods and schools in Northern Kentucky. “The key to success in the fight against domestic violence is not only building awareness, but also building relationships. We need to show those who are caught in the cycle of violence that there is a way out

and a future filled with hope, if they are willing to pursue it. It is an honor to receive this award, and I want to thank the Women’s Crisis Center for all their important work in Northern Kentucky,” Davis said.

Design college helps companies Some start-up companies in the Tristate area – including a Northern Kentucky horse organization – are getting the graphic design help they need to begin promoting their products and services during this difficult economy. The help comes from stu-

dents at The Art Institute of Cincinnati College of Design Studio. Every day students from The AIC College of Design Studio help budget-strapped start-ups that cannot afford established professionals with marketing projects. These include layout and production design of magazines, journals, promotional displays, packaging, brochures, and Web sites

that drive brand awareness. The college recently completed a project for The Northern Kentucky Quarter Horse Association by successfully redesigning their member magazine, KyQHA Quarterly. Earlier this year, students finalized a series of lighthearted book illustrations for the Losantiville Press and the Losantiville Society of Limericists and also

designed vibrant and colorful posters for the Newport on the Levee Fall Festival. Students will soon complete an extensive menu and website redesign for a leading Italian restaurant. Start-up companies, community project coordinators, and local agencies needing assistance with overflow with graphic design work can contact the college at 513-751-1206.

Middle school central to district history

School hires staff by supplementing funds

By Chris Mayhew

By Chris Mayhew

With bricks made by the Rookwood Pottery Co., and ornate three-dimensional statues above the entrance to the old gym, Campbell County Middle School is a Depression-era architectural gem. Finished in 1939 under the auspice of the federal New Deal program known as the Works Progress Administration, the school served as the high school


The hallways of Campbell County Middle School where David Sandlin is principal are lined with glazed yellow brick made by Rookwood Pottery Co. in Cincinnati when the school was built in 1939.

for the county district until 1995 when a newer high school near Lickert Road was opened. But the school still serves as the heart of the district with home football games played behind the school at Bob Miller Stadium, named for a former coach of the high school program. The middle school is part of the district’s core campus that additionally includes a technical school, an alternative school, a board meeting room and district offices. The designers of the school had a choice between cinder blocks, which were used in many areas of the school, and more costly Rookwood glazed bricks that line the hallways, said Principal David Sandlin, who attended the same school he is the administrator of now. “Today, we wouldn’t build with that level of ornateness,” Sandlin said. Originally, the building was completed as two schools, a high school and Alexandria Elementary School. In 1961 the two schools were connected with the most recent addition to the building, he said. Many people have memories of several generations of a family going through classes in the building, said Juli Hale, director of communications for the district. “There’s a lot of emotion involved when you talk about that building,” Hale said.


A sculpture of boys playing basketball adorns the outside of Campbell County Middle School, and is one of the many sculpted architectural features on the outside of the building. The middle school isn’t the oldest in the district, the current Grant’s Lick Elementary School was built in 1939, she said. But the builders were able to put in more architectural detail into the building than there ever would be now, Hale said. Greg Rose, of Alexandria, a 1979 graduate of the school, said he met his wife of more than 25 years as his childhood sweetheart at the old high school. Rose’s oldest daughter also attended the first sixth-grade class to attend the school as a middle school, he said. The entire area, including the football field, that was built in the 1940s, is a central area that helps bring the north to south oriented county together, Rose said. “It does have a lot of sentimental value to a lot of people, as does the field,” he said.

Enrollment growth and what Campbell Ridge Elementary School Principal Anthony Mazzei says are creative ways the school spends money, has allowed the school to add additional paraeducator positions. The paraeducator positions added this fall will provide more daily small group or one-on-one interventions with students needing improvement in one or more subjects. The school is buying two of the positions with extra money in its budget, and the district’s Board of Education is funding the additional two positions as a normal part of the staffing allocation process. Because of growth in the Campbell Ridge’s enrollment this fall, the school was able to split an additional teaching position added back into the staffing allocation by the board into two paraeducator positions instead, Mazzei said. The school’s enrollment grew about 25 students to almost 750 students including preschool at the end of last year, and that’s about where enrollment started this year, he said. Overall, the district’s enroll-

ment continues to grow, with about 100 more students in total attending the school system this year, said Juli Hale, director of communications. “We feel like we picked up some parochial students who chose public school over parochial school that may or may not be related to economy,” Hale said. In hiring the remaining two paraeducator positions, the school used money it had saved from the district-funded supply budget with a supplemental $40 annual instructional supply fee parents at the school are paying. “We spend money in creative ways,” Mazzei said. The school is using the fee money to buy paper and other teaching supply materials. “We are able to do this because I think we are budgeting money in a very responsible manner,” he said. But Campbell Ridge’s creative spending plan has its detractors. When the board allocates funds for instructional materials, it should be spent only for that purpose, said Board of Education member Janis Winbigler. “I just feel like staffing should be board allocated,” Winbigler said.

Of the 1.5 million students who took the PSAT testing students in critical reading, math and writing, Cooper may now qualify for one of the 8,200 National Merit scholarships worth $34 million that will be awarded in February. He is the son of Ralph and Peggy Cooper of Melbourne and St. Philip parish.

Sen. Jeff Green Scholars

Eighteen students from Campbell County have been named Sen. Jeff Green Scholars. Students earn this desig-

nation by achieving a 4.0 grade point average all four years of high school and scoring at least a 28 composite on the ACT. The title honors the late state Sen. Jeff Green of Mayfield, who served in the Kentucky General Assembly from 1992 to 1997. Local students who earned this prestigious designation are: • Bellevue High School: Chelsea Fischer. • Bishop Brossart High School: Kairee Franzen, Julie Geiger, Robert Hagedorn, Sarah Landwehr, Maria Ritter, Cassandra Thornton, Benjamin Weyman. • Campbell County High School: Anthony Bankemper, Sarah Henson, Ryan Lauer, Deandra Wagner. • Highlands High School: Justin Brandt, Thomas Christy, Elizabeth Donelan, Olivia Erb, Madison McGhee, Lauren Sanders. “My congratulations go to these hardworking and deserving students for this tremendous academic accomplishment,” said Gov. Steve Beshear. “A strong education system builds the foundation for students to be successful in college and beyond, and I am grateful for the dedication and support of the faculty, administrators and the parents who helped these students succeed. I know they are proud of them today.” As Sen. Jeff Green Scholars, these students are eligi-


ble for at least $2,500 a year in Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES) awards.

University’s youngest

Eric Hempleman, 13-yearold Ft. Thomas resident, is the youngest student at the University of Cincinnati. He was a non-matriculate student earning an “A” with four-credit hours in electronics during the summer quarter.

The University of Cincinnati proved to be a very good experience for Eric, said Kim Hempleman, Eric’s mother. I would recommend it for a good transition to college life later, she said.

Theater Web site

At the Highlands High School Theatre Open House held earlier this week, Jason Burgess, theatre director, unveiled something that has been on his mind for a while, a Web site. Now up and running at, Burgess said the new Web site will give students, administration, and the community a way to have more of a pulse on what is happening in the theatre department. The site lists upcoming events and news from the department and beyond, a detailed breakdown of the theatre season at the high school, information on how to obtain tickets and purchase ad space, a list of previous shows at Highlands, information on the drama, and links to favorite theatre Web sites.

Bellevue runs full squad

The Bellevue High School Cross Country Team continues to improve each and every week throughout the season. As the season is drawing to an end, the team is trying to hit their peak at the right moment. The regional championships will be Nov. 7 at Scott High School. This will be the first time since 2003 Bellevue has raced a full boys’ squad at the Regional Meet. “I look forward to having seven guys step to the line on Nov. 7. It shows a lot of dedication from our athletes and hard work from the returning runners in recruiting guys. I am very proud to be coaching this fine group of athletes” said Coach Caleb Finch. Jordan Roberts continues to lead the team week in and week out, but many runners have been stepping up into the Nos. 2 and 3 spots. Nolan Rechtin, Tony Isbell, and Noah Placke have all been fighting for spots two through four. New to the team is freshman Brad Guilkey. Brad ran his first race for Bellevue Sept. 26. As his training progresses, he could be fighting for the tops spots on the team as well.

Brossart senior returns to state golf tourney By James Weber

Abby Ruberg has a simple goal for her final state golf tournament. Play two rounds instead of one. The Bishop Brossart senior will compete in the state tourney for the second straight year. The meet is Oct. 9-10 in Bowling Green. Last year, Ruberg shot a 95 in the first round and missed the cut to compete in Round 2. “I’m pretty excited,” she said. “My goal is to make the cut because last year I made it to state and didn’t do it. I think that will be tough. Last year was 86, which is about my average. I’ll have to play really good to do it, but it’s definitely possible.” Ruberg shot a 92 in the Region 8 girls’ tournament to grab one of the individual spots from a non-qualifying team. She said her best per-

formance this year was finishing second in the recent Northern Kentucky Athletic ConRuberg ference tourney with an 81. She also had a 39 for nine holes in a match at Flagg Springs. Ruberg has only been playing the sport for three years after giving up soccer. She is exploring playing golf in college. “My dad and brother are really big into golf,” she said. “I just went out with them one day and starting hitting the ball around and I started to get better and fell in love with it.” Highlands also has an entry in the girls’ golf tournament. Senior Shelbye Harris shot an 83 in the Region 6 tourney to earn an individual berth.

Trash for cash

On the 19th of September, our Teen group cleaned a five-mile stretch of road partly covering Licking Pike and Creektrace Road in the Trash for Cash program. We had about 25 folks and put groups on each side of the road. The experience was great and very revealing. We filled some 100 garbage bags, mostly of cans and bottles. Nothing out of the ordinary was collected, but we did pick up a lot of alcoholic containers. We were surprised and concerned for the number of people who are obviously drinking while driving or driving right after drinking. As well, we were surprised by the amount. We filled about 20 bags of garbage every mile! We wish to thank the Solid Waste Department and our County for the opportunity to help clean up our county roads and for

the lessons it gave to our young men and women about littering. God Bless, Immanuel Baptist Church Rocky View Drive Cold Spring

Deer hunt

The city administration of Fort Thomas has refused once again to require the registration of potential hunters, and the proof of profiency that other communities have required in their successful deer hunt programs. An example of why registration is important is a similar community that had 240 plus applicants narrowed to a field of 120 plus because of background checks and profiency problems. But the honorable mayor of Fort Thomas, and some members of council believe restrictions such as these would inhibit potential hunters.

Laws regarding Handicap Parking Permits As I sit writing this article and see the cool and wet weather outside, there is no question that fall is upon us. Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays and shopping season are fast approaching! Most of us have probably experienced a sense of aggravation when we go to a store or restaurant and see people who appear to be specimens of good health parking in the handicap spots close to the store or restaurant. Many of those individuals are not handicap and do not have a handicap sticker or they may be abusing the use of the sticker that belongs to someone else. The Kentucky General Assembly has addressed this problem and it may be helpful to review the substantial penalties that can be imposed for a violation of the handicap parking laws. The fine for parking illegally in a parking space designated for those with disabilities is now $250 per occurrence. This is certainly a substantial penalty and rightfully so. Hopefully folks will think twice before parking illegally in handicap spots. The handicap parking laws state that 90 percent of the fines mentioned above are forwarded to the state's Personal Care Assistance Program. The remaining 10 percent is returned to the County of occurrence to be distributed equally among all local law enforcement agencies. Handicapped parking permits can be obtained on a temporary or permanent basis. To obtain a temporary handicap parking permit, an application form needs to be filed at the County Clerk's Office. There are no fees for this application process. Temporary permits are valid for an initial period of not more than three months. For a person seeking the temporary placard, proof of the dis-

ability shall be required by a statement from a licensed physician that the applicant is a person whose mobility, flexibility, coordination, respiration, or perceptiveness is significantly reduced by a temporary disability to that person's arms, legs, lungs, heart, ears or eyes. A permanent handicap parking permit can also be obtained by filing an application with the County Clerk with the necessary proof of permanent disability. Proof in this case can be that the person has a license plate for a person with a disability, a statement from their physician, or the clerk issuing the permit ascertains the applicant is obviously disabled. These placards are issued for a period of two years and may be renewed twice for two years without any fee. The disability parking placard must be placed so that it can be viewed from the front or rear of the vehicle, preferably by hanging on the rearview mirror. If no rearview mirror exists, the placard is to be displayed on the front dash. It is illegal to display a placard when the person with the disability is not in the vehicle. These disability placards are separate and apart from the issuance of accessible parking registration plates which are dealt with in another statute. I hope this information is interesting and helpful.

About guest columns

We welcome guest columns on all sides of an issue; however, potential columnists should reserve space in advance with Editor Michelle Shaw by calling 578-1053. Include with your column your name, address, daytime telephone number, and a two-to-three line biography outlining your expertise related to this topic. Either include a color headshot of yourself, or make arrangements when you call to have your photo taken here. We reserve the right to edit for length, accuracy and clarity. Columns may be no more than 500 words. Deadline: Noon Friday for next Thursday’s issue. E-mail: Letters, columns and articles submitted to The Community Recorder may be published or distributed in print, electronic or other forms.

So the city will have unregulated, unknown people roaming the woods of the city come November. So as the only municipality in the area with no accountability imposed on potential hunters, or others with ulterior motives posing as hunters, perhaps we should hang welcome signs advertising the fact that no one will question you if you wander through our neighborhoods early in the morning while schoolkids are on their way to class, as long as you have purchased a KY hunting license from KMART for $10. I feel safer already. I hope you do too. Bill Sheffield Chalfonte Place Fort Thomas

Air pollution a growing concern

Since the passage of the Clean Air Act in 1963, the nation’s air has become remarkably cleaner, the Greater Cincinnati area included. The number of smog alerts in the area has dropped drastically in the past 10 years from 27 days in 1999 to only three days thus far in 2009. And harmful chemicals like smog and soot are less pervasive throughout the whole country. However, scientific research has revealed even minimal exposure to air pollution can be dangerous. The increased effects of global warming and inefficient use of energy continue to generate less than ideal air quality, especially here in the Tristate. The Air Quality Management Division of the Hamilton County Environmental Services said that smog, once considered only a problem during the summer, could become a problem during winter months due to tightening air control standards. “While we have made great progress in reducing air pollution in the Tristate, it is crucial we continue the effort,” said Steve Pendery, Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments

(OKI) Board President and Campbell County Judge Executive. “Air pollution is still a serious problem in the Tri-State and ignoring this issue puts everyone at Emily risk for various Feldman health problems – right now and in Community the future.” Recorder A July study guest by the American columnist Lung Association ranked Greater Cincinnati in the 25 worst U.S. cities for air pollution based on levels of ozone (a.k.a. smog) and fine particulates (a.k.a soot). While there are several forms of air pollution, these two prove to be two of the most dangerous. Both ozone and particulate pollution are serious health concerns, causing irritation to the throat, nose, eyes and lungs as well as decreasing the lungs’ working capacity. The study also noted that air pollution can lead to longterm health problems such as lung diseases, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.


“Air pollution continues to be a widespread and dangerous problem,” said OKI Executive Director Mark Policinski. “But the problem can’t be solved solely by cleaning up the big industries. It’s a problem that must be tackled by each individual as well.” OKI leads the fight against air pollution in the Tristate with its “Do Your Share for Cleaner Air” campaign. It suggests many tips for reducing air pollution including small changes that everyone can make to his or her daily routine. These changes include carpooling, riding the bus, cutting back on vehicle trips, conserving electricity, walking instead of driving, refueling after 8 p.m. and using gas-powered lawn equipment after 8 p.m. More tips on how to reduce air pollution and information about Greater Cincinnati’s “Do Your Share for Cleaner Air” campaign can be found at or by calling 1-800621-SMOG.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question

Do you plan to get either the regular flu shot or the H1N1 vaccine? Why or why not?

“No to the flu and H1N1 vaccines. I’ve been flu-free without the vaccine and despite having flu-like symptoms after getting a flu shot, I’ll pass to enable someone else to get the vaccine.” Florence “I plan to get a regular flu shot this week. Uncertain about the H1N1 shot. It seems the H1N1 vaccine has been manufactured in haste, and I am uncertain if the potential cure

may be worse than the flu.”


“I already have received my regular flu shot. When I asked about H1N1 they replied that because of my age I probably was either exposed to or had it back in the 1957 epidemic. I can’t remember one way or the other.” C.J.W. “I will probably get the regular one as I do every October, but I am a little leery about the other; there’s always a tremendous push by government and medical establishments to blindly vaccinate the public in the face of any

Rosary March for World Peace Saturday, October 10, 2009 10:00 a.m. Meet at Florence Government Center 8100 Ewing Blvd. Florence, KY 41042 (plenty of free parking) “Pray the Rosary every day to obtain peace for the world.” - Our Lady of Fatima 1917


“We do not hesitate to affirm again publicly that We put great confidence in the Holy Rosary for the healing of evils which afflict our times” - Pope Pius XII

ur Blessed Mother appeared at Fatima on October 13, 1917, when the great “Miracle of the Sun” was witnessed by 70,000 people. At each of her six apparitions from May 13th to October 13th of 1917, The Blessed Virgin Mary asked for the daily Rosary, for penance, amendment of life, and Holy Communions of reparation on first Saturdays of five consecutive months. Our Lady also asked for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart, to be made by the Pope and Bishops simultaneously in order to obtain the conversion of Russia and peace for the world. In his wonderful book, The Secret of The Rosary, Saint Louis De Montfort teaches us the importance and power of The Most Holy Rosary that was given to us by the Blessed Virgin Mary. And especially does our Saint emphasize the importance and power of the Rosary. Saint Louis De Montfort instructs: “There are several ways of praying the most Holy Rosary, but that which gives Almighty God the greatest glory, does the most for our souls and which the devil fears more than any other, is that of praying the Rosary publicly.” Furthermore, “Somebody who prays his Rosary alone only gains the merit of one Rosary, but if we pray it together with a hundred people we gain the merit of a hundred Rosaries. This is the law of public prayer. How profitable, how advantageous this is!” We all realize the seriousness of the state of the world today. It is obvious that the efforts of man and governments will not solve the world’s problems. We need the Divine Help afforded by the praying of the Rosary. As the Blessed Virgin Mary herself said: “One day through the Rosary and Brown Scapular I will save the world.” It has been over 90 years since the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima, Portugal. We must heed Our Lady’s requests and pray the Rosary every day. We must pray and do penance so we can attain world peace, and an end to the crimes of abortion and other horrible sins that cry to Heaven for vengeance. We also pray for our elected officials, our police, fire fighters; and especially our troops, so that they get home safely and quickly. “The Rosary is experiencing a new springtime. When reciting the Rosary the important and meaningful moments of salvation history are relived. The Rosary brings peace and reconciliation. It contains within itself the healing power of the Most Holy Name of Jesus, invoked with faith and love at the center of each Hail Mary.” - Pope Benedict XVI

Please join us in an hour of prayer Saturday morning, October 10th as we pray the Rosary for World Peace and the conversion of Russia as The Blessed Virgin Mary requested of mankind when she appeared at Fatima over 90 years ago.

Schulz & Sons Jewelers will be hosting a Breast Cancer Awareness weekend Friday and Saturday Oct. 16 and 17. The business, located in Fort Mitchell, will donate 10 percent of all sales to the local chapter of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. PANDORA Jewelry will not be included in the special event because the company is already donating funds to the national Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Customers will receive a free “stuffed” tote for a $150 PANDORA purchase. Vice President Matthew Schulz hopes the two-day event will raise not only awareness, but funds to help find a cure for breast cancer.

Sport your pink ribbon at Schulz & Sons Help support breast cancer awareness at Schulz & Sons Jewelers Oct. 16 and Oct. 17. The Fort Mitchell business, located at 2202 Dixie Highway, will donate 10 percent of every sale on the two-day event to the local chapter of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. “It’s the third year since I took over the business and after a couple years of getting my feet wet I wanted to find ways to give back to the community,” said Matt Schulz, vice president of the company. The only exception to the sale is PANDORA products because the company has dedicated $100,000 to the national Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Schulz hopes the twoday special event will help promote the breast cancer awareness cause. “One in 1,000 women is affected. More than likely each person in the commu-

nity knows or knows of somebody with breast cancer,” Schulz said. “This money can help improve their future.” Breast cancer awareness is just one of the ways Schulz & Sons gives back to the community – the 56year-old business also donates thousands of dollars to local schools and organizations for silent auctions. “We view our customers as individuals and we view each piece of jewelry as a personal representation of them,” Schulz said. Customers can trade in diamonds and gold for credit or design one-of-a-kind necklaces, earrings and more in-store using Schulz & Sons’ Virtual Display Case technology. “Turn your out-of-date design into something new,” Schulz said.

Sunrock Farm owner Dr. Frank Traina, known as Farmer Frank, holds one of the decorations that will be used for the evolution parade during the day.

Sunrock Farm in Wilder to host evolution-themed Halloween events By Amanda Joering Alley Sunrock Farm in Wilder is hosting some Halloween events with a bit of a twist. Instead of ghosts and monsters, those who attend the event will be seeing evolution-themed costumes and activities. The Society for Evolution Education is sponsoring the events Oct. 31, which include a family party during the day and Evolution Ball for adults at night, in partnership with Sunrock, students at Northern Kentucky University and other organizations. The event is one of many evolution-themed events happening this year, the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth and 150th anniversary of the publication of his book “The Origin of Species,” said Dr. Frank Traina, owner of Sunrock. “09 is a very important year for evolution,” Traina said. “We are using this event as an opportunity to bridge the gap between the arts and humanities and the science.”


Carol Carlson, administrative assistant at Sunrock Farm, shows off an evolutionthemed mask, a bird with teeth. The farm is hosting an evolution themed family party and an Evolution Ball for adults on Halloween. By working with biology and art students at NKU, Traina said the farm is offer-

ing an artistic view of the scientific process of evolution.

“We do both at this farm, we explore the earth from a scientific approach and celebrate its beauty through song, dance, art and storytelling,” Traina said. During the family party, which runs from noon to 6 p.m., patrons can participate in a games, art, a parade, costume contest and holding farm animals. The adults’ Evolution Ball, which is from 8 p.m. until midnight, includes a Haunted Habitat, games, live music by Busted Bridge, costume contest, a bonfire and refreshments. The cost of the events is $5 for children and $10 for adults. Traina said he hopes people come in homemade, evolution-themed costumes. An example of an evolution-themed costume, Traina said, is a bird mask with teeth since at one time birds had teeth, but have since evolved. “People have billions of years of evolution to chose a costume from,” Traina said. Sunrock Farm is located at 103 Gibson Lane, in Wilder.

Campbell Lodge appoints Jones Campbell Lodge Boys Home appoints Barry Jones as its new executive director. Jones had been at CLBH since October 2001 and previously worked for Kenton County Schools. He also had been the Treatment Director for Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky. “After an extensive search for the sixth executive director of Campbell Lodge Boys’ Home, the Search Committee unanimously endorsed Barry Jones, MSW, LCSW as exec-

utive director,” Past President of The Campbell Boys Home Board of Directors Marna Meier Jones Zalla said. “Barry has served as Director of Residential and Clinical Services for Campbell Lodge for over eight years.” Campbell Lodge Boys’ Home is a year-round residential facility for pre-adolescent and adolescent boys

Jones said. The Equestrian Center is one of many initiatives under way at the Campbell Lodge Boys Home. The Equestrian Center is used to provide therapy to the residents through the use of horses. Campbell Lodge Boys Home has served the community for 51 years and provided services to more than 1,500 children in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky each year.

Checking our images of God Humans have a strong tendency to categorize things. Then we paste our categories in a mental book titled, “Things I Know For Sure.” This makes us feel more secure but less enthralled. Often it takes a crisis to rediscover how something old can be new again. St. Augustine has always intrigued me. After his conversion to Christianity, he wrote a prayer that began, “Late have I loved you, O Beauty ever ancient, ever new …” Imagine that! Not perceiving God in the typical category of being judgmental, severe or powerful – but beautiful. God is a frequent recipient of our familiarizing. God never grows up in our minds, never becomes new, exciting and breathtaking. He remains an old grandfatherly man or mean-spirited critic.

Certainly there is a need to recognize the stability and steadfastness of God. The psalmists often used descriptive words like “fortress” and “rock” to do this. What must be remembered is that God is an absolute mystery. St. Anselm described God as “The One beyond that is able to be thought.” That means in our dealings with God we must develop a tolerance for ambiguity. In his book “God, The Oldest Question,” William J. O’Malley, S.J., writes, “I do believe that the Holy Spirit is a feminine principle within God, just as the book of Wisdom pictures her. “But in my experience, God is … far more masculine (challenging, rational, decisive, unbending) than feminine (cherishing, enfolding, mothering, consoling.) Again in my experience, if God is a ‘she,’

To expand the quality of our lives, G.K. Chesterton once said that our spiritual and psychological task is to learn to look at familiar things until they become unfamiliar again. This holds true whether the familiar thing be a flower, a snowfall, a job or even God. Mystics call this process “awakening.” Most of our lives we just go on turning the pages of our mental book, “Things I Know For Sure.” Our pictures of God were pasted there when we were kids. Now they’re cracked, sepia-colored, and a little dusty. Archie Bunker had a large album of them to which he referred frequently. One of the attractions to the recent novel, “The Shack,” seems to be the different images used for the Triune-God. Archie would have condemned the book.

God is one damn tough cookie.” The parables of Jesus Christ are stories about people, but their real plot is about the heart of God. Notice that there is always an element of astonishment, surprise and the unexpected in them. The measured expectations of those hearing them are shattered. God was always more than anticipated. John Shea writes, “As Mark says, ‘He was too much for them.’ Like a woman who loves too much, like ointment that costs too much and is spilled too much, like a seventy-times-seven God who forgives too much.” Today we like a housebroken God, a God we can keep on a leash, who has predictable habits, doesn’t generate questions, and makes sense by our logic. Author Kathleen Norris writes:

“One so often Father Lou hears people Guntzelman say, ‘I just can’t Perspectives handle it,’ when they reject a biblical image of God as Father, Mother, as Lord and Judge, God as a lover… God on a cross. … If we seek a God we can ‘handle’ that will be exactly what we get – a God we can manipulate, suspiciously like ourselves, the wideness of whose mercy we’ve cut down to size.” What we get then is not God. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Reach him at columns@ or contact him directly at P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242. Please include a mailing address or fax number if you wish for him to respond.

Deadline nears for federal first-time home tax credit tunity. The tax credit, available for first-time homebuyers, as well as to individuals who have not owned a principal residence in the three-

year period prior to purchase, expires Nov. 30. That means that home loans closed past that date will not qualify. Since it generally takes a

couple of weeks to negotiate a purchase, then 30 to 45 days to close on a loan – with more stringent appraisal and disclosure requirements adding more time to

the closing process – it is crucial that those wanting to take advantage of the incentive realistically select a home by mid-October to meet the deadline.

“New homeowners have accounted for approximately one-third of recent home purchases,” added Jim Huff, CEO and president of HUFF Realty.

Treat your palate to tastes of the past When it comes to autumn festivals, two stand out for me – the Renaissance Festival in Harveysburg, Ohio, and the Old West Fest i v a l between M o u n t Orab and Williamsburg. They are as difRita ferent as Heikenfeld night and day to Rita s kitchen e a c h other, but each is historically correct, whether it’s the architecture, dress code, entertainment, or the food offered. Plus when you visit, you are literally transported back into time. Now I love to cook, but I’m not sure I’d make it as a “Renaissance girl” in the kitchen. And I don’t think Drew Deimling, a Hyde Park reader and proprietor of the Old West Festival, would hire

me as a cowgirl rustling up supper. I thought it would be fun, though, to share recipes for the kind of foods eaten during those times.

Food fests

• Renaissance Festival, Harveysburg, Ohio. Saturday and Sunday, 10:30 a.m.-6 p.m. through Oct. 25.

Kathy’s Renaissance chicken pie served in bread bowls

Originally from Kathy Kneipp, a Clermont County reader. She loves history and taught her kids about the Renaissance by having them help her prepare a Renaissance meal. Here’s my adaptation: 2 frying chickens, cut up 1 teaspoon garlic powder (opt.) 1 small onion, cut up 4 tablespoons butter 1 ⁄2 cup flour 1 cup milk Broth from chicken Salt and pepper to taste Fill a pan with enough water to cover chicken, add garlic powder and onion,


Rita lunching at the Renaissance Festival in Harveysburg. • Old West Festival, Williamsburg/Mount Orab, Ohio. Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. through Oct. 11. but do not add the chicken yet. Bring water to a boil. Lower heat then add chicken. Simmer until tender. Remove chicken, let cool and remove from bones. Reserve broth. Melt butter in a skillet, whisk in flour and cook slowly for one minute. Add 1 cup milk and 1⁄2 cup chicken broth and stir carefully. Add another 1⁄2 cup broth.

Season everything with salt and pepper. Place chicken on a serving platter and pour sauce over and serve. To serve in bread bowls: Cut off top of round loaf of bread. Hollow out bottom 2⁄3, and set the reserved bread aside. In preheated 350 degree oven, toast the hollowed out bread round along with the reserved pieces for a few minutes. Pour the chicken topped with sauce into bread bowl. Use chunks of reserved bread to dunk into bowl and to act as a utensil.

per to taste, in the crockpot until done (about three hours on high, five hours on low). When cool, shred. Measure out 1 quart broth from cooked meat. Add to that:

1 bottle ketchup 1 ⁄2 cup mustard 1 teaspoon chili powder 1 teaspoon paprika (opt.) 1 ⁄2 to 1 cup brown sugar 1 bay leaf 2 slices lemon 1 tablespoon each: vinegar and Worcestershire sauce Dash or two Tabasco sauce (opt.) Cook 10 minutes, remove bay leaf and add meat that has been shredded. Put all back in crockpot and cook 30 minutes longer, uncovered. Use a soup ladle to serve on warm buns. Even easier: To a bottle of purchased barbecue sauce, sprinkle in some chili powder, garlic powder and, if you want it sweeter,

Old West pulled pork barbecue

In the Old West you had to raise the pig, butcher it, smoke the hams, etc. Lucky for us we can just go to the grocery where the pork is neatly wrapped, ready to cook. Cook a pork loin roast in 3 cups water with a diced onion, a teaspoon or so minced garlic, salt and pep-

brown sugar to taste. Thin with a bit of the broth if you want. Again, cook about 30 minutes uncovered in the crockpot.

Can you help?

The number of requests for these recipes is growing each day: • Like Syktop Bigg’s chicken salad • Mio’s creamy garlic salad dressing • Strawberry lasagna like Bravo’s Café, Augusta, Ky.

Rooting out recipes

I’m cloning a recipe now for Entenmann’s pound cake and will share it hopefully soon. Also a recipe for roasted garlic potatoes using whole cloves.

Bed & Breakfast Feature of the Week

The Doolin House Bed & Breakfast

Somerset, Kentucky’s Premiere Inn Located Just Minutes from Lake Cumberland

There is a joke among friends here, “It’s a Phoenix that has risen from the ashes. ”When Charles and Allison Hahn Sobieck purchased the property at 502 North Main Street (in Somerset, Kentucky), there was a lot of work to be done, to say the least. With the vision of a B & B and a home in ruins, there were little choices. The dilapidated structure was removed, then reconstructed as it had been in the 1850’s. It’s a brand new home. A bit of an unusual concept for a bed and breakfast. “We reconstructed the home from scratch. This gave us the benefit of designing every amenity possible along the way, ”said Allison Sobieck, owner. Every room is equipped with many amenities you don’t often find in a traditional bed and breakfast, but rather a fine hotel. Every room has a full sized closet with a pair of micro-fiber robes hanging in them, 400- count Egyptian cotton sheets, cable TV with DVD players, queen sized beds, and a host of other things. For instance, 2 rooms have gas fireplaces and 3 rooms have whirlpool tubs. We even offer many add on amenities such as massage, dinner, flowers, etc…

NEW YORK The rooms are only half of the reason to come to The Doolin House. Owners Charles and Allison just happen to both be chefs. Some of the breakfast specialties include Caramel Banana French Toast and Southern Eggs Benedict (2 fried green tomatoes topped with 2 slices of smoked bacon, 2 eggs over easy and Hollandaise). Chuck is usually in charge of breakfast and tries to do new and different things every day. Chef Chuck pointed out, “It’s fun to experiment with breakfast. It’s the one meal that encompasses all foods. It’s perfectly acceptable to see smoked salmon or a pork cutlet at the breakfast table. ”For those in no rush to rise and shine, breakfast in bed is served at no additional charge. When you need a weekend get away that’s not too far from home or you are planning your summer vacation to beautiful Lake Cumberland, remember that The Doolin House Bed and Breakfast is only a phone call away.
