Campbell students clip into farming

By Chris Mayhew

ALEXANDRIA — Students from Reiley Elementary School “ewed” and “awed” as they watched a sheep shearing and felt the wool used to make clothing. They were part of Grow It, Eat It, Wear It 2013 at the Alexandria Fairgrounds Oct. 2. There were 690 fifth-grade students signed up from 14 Campbell County schools to participate on one of the five days of the Sept. 30-Oct. 4 program at the Alexandria Fairgrounds, said Owen Prim, Campbell County extension agent for 4-H youth development.

ALEXANDRIA — When Mark and Sharon Wegford drove in to the Southern Campbell Fire District on Sunday, Sept. 15, they were both smiling, happy and alive. The same was not true for them on May 26. On that sunny day in May, Sharon had passed out in the car after complaining of acid reflux-type symptoms. Actually, she died from a heart attack caused by a complete blockage of the left anterior descending coronary artery. As Mark was trying to give directions to a 911 emergency operator, he realized he had just passed the Southern Campbell Fire District on Racetrack Road. He turned around and drove into the department’s parking lot, where the majority of staff members were celebrating at a Memorial Day picnic. “She was no more than 10 minutes without a pulse, but we were working on her right away. Her brain didn’t go without oxygen for long, so that helped,” said firefighter and paramedic Keith Workman. University of Cincinnati Health Air Care Flight Nurse Jennifer Miller said Sharon’s heart had been working at 10 percent capacity, and that treat-

ment usually requires a heart transplant for the patient to return to a relatively normal life. “When we heard she got discharged from the hospital, we couldn’t believe it,” said Miller. “These firemen did a great job.” “With the new protocols, they’re saying you don’t really have to do the airways as much, for people who were squeamish about giving mouth to mouth. It’s about keeping the blood pumping to keep the organs viable,” said Southern Campbell Fire District Chief Jim Bell. “I See CREW, Page A2

COLD SPRING — A metallic archway bearing the name DeVanna’s was installed on Sept.12 officially marking a new chapter for the the lakeside event venue at 4210 Alexandria Pike. The decorative awning stands on the outLippert door wedding platform featured at DeVanna’s on the Lake, a 12,800-square-foot building that has been known under various names since 1999, including Cold Spring Roadhouse, The Stables, the Dark Horse Saloon and Guys n’ Dolls. Proprietor Mary Lippert isn’t worried about the longevity of her business. “I’ve got more than 10 years of experience with events, and anyone could look at my calendars and see weddings planned

here into 2015,” said Lippert. “I’m going to be here. Those contracts are signed.” Because of the building’s history, she understands people wonder how this will work out, but invites them to come and see for themselves. “This is really the perfect fit for this building. It was too big for a restaurant. It was way too big for a pub,” she said. “With all this square footage, everyone can be here together to celebrate, but everyone has space. We have room dividers if we need to block off space to let the event have the energy of their gathering. If the previous owners had thought of that, it might have been different for them.” The sprawling venue’s past as a nightclub has been scrubbed away and renovated with warm woods, luxurious fabrics and lush upholstery, all laid upon the 85-year-old original hardwood floors.

schools in the program Oct. 2. Students shuffled between six different 30minute sessions from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sessions included “From Moo to You” with cows, “Grow It, Wear It” with sheep, “Let’s Go Fishing,” an aquaculture program, “From Seed to Supper” about plants, “Horsepower” and “Pollinating with Bees.” “It’s to increase their awareness of the importance of agriculture and the role farming plays in their daily lives,” Prim said. Shelley Mason, a manager at Sunrock Farm in Wilder, started out her 30minute presentation with a demonstrated of how to shear a sheep. Mason showed the students how lanolin oil, a

dents. Other students in the Crossroads group said “awe” and commented the wool was soft. Crossroads teacher Linda Neltner said the program helps students understand there is more that goes into making food than what they see at the grocery. It’s also a good opportunity for students to see animals up close and learn some science lessons, Neltner said. Addi Pfefferman of Alexandria, a fifth-grade student at Reiley, said she learned “a lot about fish,” and more about how food is produced and where it comes from.

Sharon’s revival is miraculous. “What I had is called a widowmaker,” said Sharon. She had been to the doctor less than a week before the incident, and didn’t have high blood pressure or high cholesterol. She passed an electrocardiogram test, but was diagnosed with acid reflux. Although she was

a smoker, she said the cigarette she had the day of the event was her last one. “I’m so grateful to this fire department, to Air Care, to the doctors and nurses at UC, to my friends and family,” she said. “I just am so thankful that God put us here, right here, where they were able to help me and protect me. They saved me.”

“Having these medics this far out is a big deal,” said Bell. “Not too long ago we didn’t have any advanced life support out here. We saved her on Memorial Day weekend, and saved a drowning victim at the lake a week later. We got them both back. It was amazing.”

more landscaping around the lake, and additional building updates to accommodate groups from 250 to 900. Although Lippert is mostly focused on weddings, she hopes to add seminars, corporate events, parties, luncheons and other group events during weekdays, and she’s allowing free fund-

raisers from 5-8 p.m. Thursdays. She’s already had inquiries from funeral homes and hospital groups seeking funding for burial and medical expenses. “It’s one way of giving back to the community,” she said. “It feels good to be able to help. I’ve been very blessed and I believe in paying it forward.”

Campaign strategies include focusing on engaging current donors, increasing the number of leadership givers of $2,500 or more and increasing participation of new donors.

Girl Scouts looking for volunteers By Melissa Stewart

ERLANGER — Ask Ruby Webster why it’s important to volunteer with the Girl Scouts and she has one firm answer – “The girls.” According to Webster, center director for the Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road Council, without the volunteers “we cannot reach or service all the girls who would like to join.” So, the Licking Valley Cluster – including Boone, Campbell, and Kenton counties – are looking for

volunteers. Within this cluster alone, Webster said, there is the potential for more than 39,000 girls – ages 5 to 17 – to join. “We are only able to serve approximately 5,000 through traditional troop experiences, shortterm programs, day camp and outreach,” she said. “In Girl Scouts, girls find a safe place to grow and share new experiences, learn to relate to others, develop values, and contribute to society.

Fort Thomas buys breathalyzers

FORT THOMAS — Police will patrol for drunk drivers during peak enforcement hours using new equipment paid for by fees already charged to people convicted of driv-

ing under the influence of alcohol or drugs, according to a news release from the department. The city’s police department has received $15,800 through a competitive state grant process with other departments in Kentucky. The Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet funds the grant using 14 percent of a $375 fee charged to each person convicted of DUI in Kentucky. Police will use the grant money to purchase two new hand-held preliminary breath test instruments, according to the news release. The department made 92 DUI arrests in 2012, and through Oct. 2 had made 69 so far in 2013, according to patrol Lt. Jamey Gadzala.

NEWPORT — Winning the All “A” state championship in any sport often leaves a team struggling mentally after the emotional high they experience in winning that title. The girls soccer team at Newport Central Catholic High School has had that difficulty, but the Thoroughbreds overcame it well enough during a 3-2 loss to Notre Dame Oct. 3. NDA, the state runner-up last year, improved to 13-2-3. NCC fell to 12-2-2. Both teams went into the game allowing fewer than 10 goals for the season, and the Thoroughbreds became only the second team to score twice on the Pandas while the Pandas did the same disservice to NewCath. “That’s what I told them,” said NCC head coach Kevin Turnick. “They’re No. 3 in the state for a reason. You were able to put two on them. That should tell you that you can play. Defensively, we have to do a better job. I’m talking about all of them, not just the back four.” NCC scored on a goal by junior Loren Zimmerman off a corner kick from senior Sam Bunzel, and Bunzel scored herself from the corner, managing to curve the ball inside the post. Bunzel and Zimmerman are two of the top scorers and veterans on the team. Bunzel broke the school’s all-time assists record in the tournament. Zimmerman got the game ball from the championship game. “I can’t say enough for their overall leadership both on and off the field,” Turnick said. “They have carried us.” The loss was NCC’s first since the team’s second game of the year, a 1-0 defeat to Ryle Aug. 26. While Turnick wasn’t pleased with the three goals allowed, the last classified as an own-goal after an NDA crossing pass deflected off the legs of a NewCath player, he said the team showed progress in the game. “After you win the ‘A,’ there’s still more soccer to play,” he said. “It’s trying to keep them focused on keeping going with their season. We’ve got to find some more ways to

motivate them. We’ll be all right. This game was good. We haven’t lost since Aug. 26, so it was kind of good to feel that now versus two weeks from now.” Freshman Taylor Tolle had six goals in the All “A” tourney and has been a big part of the offense. Meg Martin had two shutouts in goal, with defenders Ruthie Barth and Ansley Davenport leading the back line. “It’s a team that really came together and played really well down in Elizabethtown,” Turnick said. “They were great as far as communication. They played with a lot of passion and a lot of energy. That’s something we take away from that. Defensively, we played well.” The Thoroughbreds will have time to regroup mentally, because in the current district alignment they share the 36th with only rival Highlands, whom NCC beat 2-1 Sept. 30. Those teams will play in the district final the week of Oct. 14, with NewCath wearing the home whites, and regardless of result both teams will play in the Ninth Region Tournament. “We have to stay focused on districts and regionals and that we stay healthy,” Turnick said. “If we have nagging injuries, we have to take care of it. We’re already in the district championship game and the regional. so it will be another two weeks before we play another one and out game. Follow James on Twitter @RecorderWeber

Pair represent NewCath golfers at state By Adam Turer

NEWPORT — For the second-straight year, Newport Central Catholic’s boys’ golf team came up just short of qualifying for state. The Thoroughbreds were still represented by a pair of golfers at the state tournament in Bowling Green beginning on Oct. 8. Drew McDonald and Luke Holtz came a long way this season and capped off their year by qualifying as individuals for the state tournament. McDonald, a 6’7” ju-

nior basketball star for the ‘Breds, had to balance basketball with golf this year. He was able to manage open gyms and recruiting visits on the court with steady improvement on the links. He won the Northern Kentucky Athletic Conference Division II individual championship for the third time in four years. “Drew has improved his game all year,” NewCath golf coach Jeff Schulkens said. “He was off to slow start, but worked to achieve a goal

of qualifying for state.” Holtz saved his best golf for his senior season. He, along with junior Matthew Striegel, qualified for the “All A” state tournament in September. Holtz then shot the best round of his career to qualify for the postseason state tournament. “Luke continued to improve from last year,” Schulkens said. “The regional was the best he has played. You’re always happy to see a senior play his best in the regional.” At the Eighth Region tournament, both Holtz

and McDonald shot rounds of 74. Holtz sank four birdies. The Thoroughbreds posted a team score of 320, good enough for third place. Unfortunately for NewCath, only the top two teams from the region advance to state. “We have finished third the last two years,” coach said. “We need consistent and improved play from all of our golfers.” The goal at Bowling Green Country Club is to play two days of golf. McDonald and Holtz have shown that they are capa-

ble of playing a round that would be good enough to make the cut. Their performances at the regional have them feeling confident heading into the last tournament of the season. “Both would like to qualify for the second day,” said Schulkens. “If Drew plays well, he is capable of finishing in the top 20. Both need to hit fairways to play well at state. Luke will also have to have a good day with the putter.”

SIDELINES Golf classic


Although the team came up just short for the second-straight year, sending Holtz out on a high note and seeing McDonald bounce back from a slow start have made this a rewarding season for the Thoroughbreds. “I think they pretty much met my expectations,” Schulkens said of his squad. “Making a good run as a team to qualify and having two individuals qualify is a great accomplishment for them.”

The 2013 Tri-State Grade- and Middle-School Golf Classic is 8 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 12, at World of Golf, 7400 Woodspoint Drive, Florence. Boys and girls in grades 4-8 are eligible. The format is stroke play (nine holes; nine-stroke

rule in effect). The cost is $20.50 per player and includes greens fee, lunch and awards. There are awards for low male and female score in each grade level, as well as low school-team score (four players from same school). Call 859-371-8255 to register.

U.S. House – where have you been most of my life?

With our partial government shutdown, it’s very uncomfortable because of the context, with the House deciding not to fund Obamacare. However, no doubt, the government buck starts in the House of Representatives, the people’s house. The “Origination Clause” in Article 1 of the United States Constitution says so: “All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Rob Hudson Representatives COMMUNITY ...” RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST What does this really mean? You can’t get any closer to original intent than the words of James Madison, the man who drafted much of the Constitution. He touted the “Origination Clause” as being crucial to reigning in big government. He wrote, in Federalist 58: “The house of representatives can not only refuse, but they alone can propose the supplies requisite for the support of government. They in a word hold the purse; that powerful instrument by which we behold ... and finally reducing, as far as it seems to have wished, all the overgrown prerogatives of the other branches of the government.


This power over the purse may in fact be regarded as the most complete and effectual weapon with which any constitution can arm the immediate representatives of the people ...” To be clear, here’s how it works. The House sets the spending. Some spending, like social security, is mandatory. Other spending, like Obamacare, is not. If the Senate and the President don’t agree, won’t compromise and won’t negotiate, the Senate and President (regardless of political party) have chosen to shut down the government. This is fact, not opinion. Whether you agree or disagree with the House’s decision, it had every right to address Obamacare spending. The law will cost well over a trillion dollars in the next decade. With the Origination Clause and founding father Madison’s words in mind, I ask, United States House, where have you been most of my life? United States House, our children will be paying back your debt of nearly $17 trillion their entire lifetimes. This matters because, among other reasons, you now spend twice as much on interest as you do investing in infrastructure which our children will need. If you won’t listen to me, maybe you will listen to Thomas Jefferson, “It is incumbent for every generation to pay

its debts as it goes.” What silver lining can come from a painful, partial shutdown? “A generous parent would have said, if there must be trouble, let it be in my day, so that my child may have peace.” Thomas Paine, “Common Sense.” Aren’t we morally obliged to accept trouble in our day, including temporary, partial shutdowns, if that’s what it takes to stop incurring debt so that our children’s children may have a fresh start? To our next generations, we owe you an apology. It wasn’t our money to spend, but we Baby Boomers kept electing Houses which did it anyway. At the highest levels of society, we still celebrate what we can get from the federal government. But it’s really coming from you. Sorry – we wanted it all, we wanted it now, and we’ve been willing to name call to get it. As a voting adult, I didn’t fully grasp the House’s Constitutional duty to take a stand, nor did I understand government shutdowns. Even now, I remain uncomfortable and conflicted with this particular shutdown. I used to love telling our children “ignorance is no excuse.” I’m afraid that this embarrassing shoe is now on my foot. Rob Hudson is an attorney and partner with Frost Brown Todd LLC in Florence and author.

Dear Senator McConnell: Many of us are disappointed in our government leaders for allowing our government to shut down. More so, I am very disappointed with the remarks I heard from you on the floor about Democrats playing the blame game as you played the blame game that it is the Democrats fault. I was also disappointed that you tried to make a joke out of the situation by stating that Democrats will blame George W. Bush for this shutdown. Enough is enough. This isn’t a joking matter. I am ashamed that my senator would act in Shae such a manHornback ner. COMMUNITY As a citiRECORDER GUEST zen of our COLUMNIST great commonwealth, I would like to inform you how many of us see this government shutdown. Republicans, Democrats and independents see this as further proof that the people we have entrusted the running of our government to cannot and will not do their jobs. You couldn’t even keep the government running, which is the most basic thing we elect you to do. It is obvious that balancing our nation’s budget and debating the Affordable Care Act are two separate issues and should be treated as such. Keep our government running and debate the ACA separately. It is basic management. The ACA should have never been attached to the debt ceiling bill because even someone who just pays the smallest bit of attention to politics knows it would be doomed from the start. So, now you all

get to stand and speak some more, make jokes, and see who can get the wittiest headline for your favorite news station tonight. I am embarrassed. Please do what we Kentuckians elected you to do. Lead. Represent us. Continue debating the ACA if you feel it is necessary, but do it on its own merit. Fund the government and get it open and running again. I remember your speech at Fancy Farm and how you told us that if we were to vote you out of office next year that we would be throwing away the powerful leadership position that a Kentucky Senator has in the Senate, which means we would be throwing away strong representation to get things done for our commonwealth. Well, Sen. McConnell – prove it. Lead on this situation. Show us that you can lead in the Senate and the Republican Party and get our government up and running again. Because if you can’t lead the senate and Republican Party, then what does having a Kentuckian in that powerful position matter? The American people are tired of partisan division that leads to defaulting on our debts, downgrades in our credit rating, and now government shutdowns. Please start leading, start compromising, start keeping bills separate so things can get done, and stop making jokes. Lead, Sen. McConnell. If we can’t trust our current representatives to do it, then maybe we will need some new ones next year. Make us proud to be Kentuckians in the next few days, Mr. Senator. Shae Hornback lives in Cold Spring.

Don’t look back, rather live with abandon Pardon the incorrect grammar, but to hear the phrase, “I’m done with that,” one may think, “I’m done with that attitude, the dead-end job, the deteriorating marriage, that persistent bad mood, that messy room, the constant bickering.” But how about looking back? When will you be “done looking back?” Looking back on the childhood filled with abuse and neglect? Looking back on what could’ve or should’ve been? Or, looking back on all the good times and agonizing over “how things used to be?” When will you be done looking back on all the things you wish you would have done, or

didn’t do? When will you be done looking back on all the things you wish you would have said? Or didn’t Julie House say? That’s the COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST kind of looking COLUMNIST back I want to be “done with.” The Christian pop group, Newsboys, says it best: “I’m not looking back; I’m done with that I wanna live with abandon Give you all that I am Every part of my heart, Jesus I place in your hands



A publication of

I wanna live with abandon” It’s not scripture, but it sure is sound advice. And God calls us to a life of abandon as well. Paul reminds us in Hebrews, “Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.” (Hebrews 12:1) How can you “lay aside every weight,” and “live with abandon for Jesus?” Will you answer God’s call to reach out and finally say “yes” to adopt a child who desperately needs a loving home? Will you put down the bottle and pick up the bible just for tonight? Will you shut

out the lies of the world and open your ears and listen to the promises of your savior? Will you stop and look the homeless person in the eye instead of just driving on by? Will you close the laptop, put your child up in your lap (no matter how old they are) and ask them how their day was? Take a step toward living in abandon today, give Jesus all that you are. Place every part of your heart into his hands, and watch him lead and guide your every step. As his word so beautifully puts it, “Call to me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things which you do not know.” (Jeremiah 33:3) By the way, my first step

Maddie Paul, 10, of Southgate, practices walking and trotting her show horse Izzy, a 1,000-pound American Quarter Horse, at Saddle Lake Equestrian Center in Alexandria Thursday, Sept. 19. CHRIS MAYHEW/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER




ALEXANDRIA — Maddie Paul

is reining in some national attention as she competes against riders who are both older and bigger. Paul, 10, is on the cover of the September/October issue of her favorite horse magazine Young Rider. She placed fourth in the walk/trot competition at the Kentucky Quarter Horse Association Association meet in May in Liberty, Ky. Her fourth place finish was special because first through third place went to college equestrian team members, said her coach and trainer Missy Jo Hollingsworth. Paul, the daughter of Jeff and Therese Paul, rides competitively in both the English and Western show divisions. She is now a member of the Mideast Kentucky Quarter Horse Congress riding team. She trains with Hollingsworth, who is also coach of the University of Cincinnati equestrian team, at Saddle Lake Equestrian Center in Melbourne. “It’s cute to watch her out there, and they’ll be16 to18 year olds,” Hollingsworth said. Paul’s riding skills have im-

proved, she said. “She’s been able to ride around them and keep up and have moments of just extreme competitiveness.” Hollingsworth said. Paul said she focuses on having fun while training and practicing, but takes being in the show ring seriously. While being photographed for the magazine, Paul said she just had fun. “When we first got the extended copy of the magazine I was surprised because I was like ‘Wait. Who’s on the front cover? Oh wait that’s me,’” she said. She has been riding since she was 4 after her grandfather, Ken Paul of Fort Thomas, set her atop a wild mustang and took a photograph. Ken Paul is a former Campbell County Judge-executive. Maddie Paul said she needed training to really learn how to ride, but the feeling of being comfortable atop a 1,000-pound animal came naturally. “It’s just that I kind of knew what to do when I got on,” she

said. Paul said her friends don’t always understand why she enjoys riding so much, but they’re usually impressed when she tells them how well shoe does in competitions. “It’s just a lot of fun when I come out here and it gives me something to do instead of doing nothing,” she said. Ken Paul, who takes his granddaughter to weekly training sessions and horse shows, said he always asks her if she is having fun and wants to continue. “These lessons are every single week, and it’s been like that since she’s been 4-and-a-half,” he said. “And she’s never said ‘I don’t want to go.’” Ken Paul said his granddaughter started showing horses three years ago and is competing in 11 different competitions this year. Maddie’s mother Therese said she thought her daughter starting out riding at a young age was just a good summer activity. She misses parties with friends to ride, and is very passionate about her sport, Therese said. “She goes out there when it’s the dead of winter and its cold and I’m at home wrapped up in a blanket,” Therese Paul said.

Two-way brisket can be made in oven, slow cooker

Easy antipasto

Need a stunning and delicious appetizer? An antipasto tray fills the bill. It is not only appealing to the eye, but there’s something on the tray for everybody. Go to your olive bar and ask lots of questions. I went to the Eastgate Jungle Jim’s olive bar and was able to sample whatever I wanted. This will help in choosing the right ingredients for your budget and guests. I did choose olives without pits. Since prosciutto is expensive, I bought a few slices to garnish and folded them over on top of the antipasto. I also sprinkled a can of chickpeas on top. The nice thing about this recipe is that it can be assembled a day ahead. For the sauce, I use Caesar salad dressing with fresh herbs stirred in. I drizzle the dressing on right before I serve it.

My favorite two-way brisket Brisket is a cut of meat from the lower chest or breast of beef. It is amazingly flavorful, but tough, so slow cooking is a must. Either way you cook this – in the oven or in a slow cooker – the brisket turns out tender and so delicious. Serve with mashed potatoes or noodles. 3 pounds beef brisket 2 cups chili sauce 1 cup brown sugar, packed 1 cup beef broth 1 very large onion, sliced 1 ⁄4 teaspoon ground cloves 3 bay leaves Salt and pepper to taste

Oven: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine chili sauce, sugar and broth. Pour about half of this in the bottom of roasting pan. Place brisket on sauce, fat side up. Distribute onion, cloves and bay leaves over brisket. Pour rest of sauce over. Cover and bake 50-55 minutes per pound or until meat is fork tender. Remove brisket from pan and remove bay leaves and whole cloves. Cut brisket across the grain. Skim off any fat from top of sauce. Pour sauce over brisket (or put sauce in refrigerator overnight and the fat will congeal on top for easy removal. Then reheat with brisket in 375 degree oven, covered, or in microwave). Slow cooker: I like to cook mine 9-12 hours or so on low, until meltingly tender.

Perfectly grilled salmon/seafood following the 70/30 rule

An antipasto tray can be customized to fit different budgets and appetites.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Have the grill hot, lightly brush both sides of fish with oil, and start grilling skin side up with the grill closed. (Or put a disposable pan over the fish). Leave it alone until about 70 percent of the fish is done on first side. You’ll know it by the looks and also if it will release easily. This allows fish to form a nice crust. Turn it and finish cooking. The rule of about 7-10 minutes per inch of thickness works, also. Start with 7 minutes and go from there.

Readers want to know:

Honing steels: “My honing/knife steel doesn’t work anymore. Should I replace it?” Run your thumbnail around the circumference of the tool. If you can still feel grooves, your steel is still useful. It is magnetized to pick up microscopic fillings that come off the knife’s blade. It’s a good idea to rub the steel with a cloth after use so grooves don’t get clogged. Now unless the honer has diamond chips in it, most steels won’t sharpen a dull knife (they restore the knife’s bite by straightening the microscopic “teeth” at the edge

that fold with use). Now even if your honing steel is in good condition, sometimes a knife doesn’t respond to honing. If that happens, it’s time to get the knife sharpened professionally.

While Internet scams are numerous, several consumers still report receiving scams through the mail. A Fort Thomas man wrote me about a credit card offer he received from AmTrade International Bank.

Such scams are very popular so remember never send money to someone who promises to loan you money or extend credit. A Hyde Park woman wrote me to say she knew immediately the letter she received was a scam. It allegedly came from Publishers Clearing House and used the company’s real address. The $1.5 million she was told she won was anything but real. She knew not to bother calling the long

She suspected it was a scam because there was no return address and the letter had bad punctuation. So she too was told to call a phone number to claim her prize, allegedly valued at nearly $1,400. Better Business Bureau says this is just a phishing scam intending to steal people’s personal information. This woman never entered a contest to receive this award of two free airline tickets

plus two nights a major hotel. Fortunately, just like the Hyde Park woman, the Wyoming woman didn’t call the number and says she wants to warn others about this scam. Many people across the nation have received this letter. One person who called was told they first had to attend a timeshare sales presentation before they could receive the tickets they won. Another person who called was told they had to give their credit card number over the phone. One of the most frequent scams I’ve run into involves criminals send-

ing you what appears to be a real check for thousands of dollars. You’re supposed to deposit the check, keep some of the money, then wire the rest to the sender. Unfortunately, many consumers learn too late that the check they received in the mail is phony – and now they’re on the hook to repay the bank for the good money they wired to the criminals.

earlier and still gave off the faint aroma of Lemon Pledge. For crying out loud, how could that be? I’d dusted and polished my dear little heart out. I’d moved the sofas to clean behind them and wiped the baseboards with a damp cloth. Why, I had gotten down on my hands and knees to vacuum under the bed and deep steam cleaned the bathroom tiles with that fancy gadget I ordered off of the Home Shopping Network in the middle of the night sometime last winter. I’d even taken the silk plants and a couple of teddy bears out onto the driveway and beaten the dust off of them with a tennis racket. “Why does this keep happening?” I whimpered, closing my eyes. “What does it take to keep a clean house when you have pets?” “Be still, Grasshopper,” a tiny voice intoned. Oh no, I thought, opening my eyes. I’ve finally gone crazy. “You are not going crazy, Grasshopper. You must only still your mind and learn the art of acceptance.” I looked over to the bookcase where my

great-grandmother’s Buddha, the one that my Aunt Dorothy sent her from Hawaii in the 1940s, stood. He was smiling at me. “Did you hear me?” he asked. “Acceptance. That’s the key. If you are going to have Marsie Hall pets, you Newbold are going MARSIE’S to conMENAGERIE stantly have something to clean up. Fur, slobber, dirty paw prints, puke ... It is a never-ending circle. Get used to it and quit your belly-aching. I have spoken.” That’s all I remember until I woke up half-way through the “Mentalist.” Must have been a dream, I thought. But, the next morning I turned to Facebook to ask my pet-loving friends what their best housekeeping tips were. I had nearly 100 responses in less than two hours and, guess what? None of them has figured it out, either. Pet-care expert Marsie Hall Newbold lives in Highland Heights.

Church hosting ‘odyssey’ on druga Drug and alcohol abuse is a problem plaguing Northern Kentucky. It has slowly crept its way into many of the middle and high schools affecting the safety and health of students across the region. While this issue is affecting many families and communities, there has not been a widespread effort to help bring awareness to the growing problem. This is why Nicholson Christian Church, 1970 Walton Nicholson Pike, Independence, is hosting the Drug House Odyssey Wednesday-Friday, Oct. 23-25, at the church. The goal is to bring awareness to the com-

munity about the significant impact drug and alcohol abuse has on their families and schools. The event is structured to show visitors realistic situations that happen as a result of making poor choices. In addition, the church will also host several agencies that provide information and counseling for those seeking ways they can help themselves and others. The event is expected to be the largest of its kind this area has seen in over five years. According to Kenton County Police Chief Brian Capps, drug use and

trafficking has become a prevalent problem that has seen an exponential increase over the past three years. “Unfortunately, Kenton County leads the state with 79% of the heroin arrests,” says Capps. “Many times nowadays, the community finds it more convenient to turn a blind eye instead of getting involved. And that’s a road that we don’t need to go down.” For more information, go to www.nicholson

Shelter needs $1.5 million for new home from Kenton County, the city of Covington and business leaders, including the 2013 Leadership Class of Northern Kentucky in search of a new location and facility,” John Carey, president of shelter’s board of directors said in a release. Of the $1.5 million, $1 million is to cover the cost of acquiring a facility, renovating it and securing a long-term lease. The $500,000 will include $200,000 for part-time shelter staff and $300,000 to seed an endowment, he said. The shelter has operated in a one-story 5,000 square foot building at 634 Scott Boulevard since 2008. The shelter leased the building from the county for $1 at year..

The only homeless shelter in Northern Kentucky needs to raise more than $1 million for a new home. The Emergency Shelter of Northern Kentucky, which housed 439 people last year, is losing its home after Kenton County sold its current building to Community and Technical College as part the college’s urban campus expansion in Covington. The shelter is launching a $1.5 million capital campaign to fund its relocation by July of next year, according Rachael Winters, shelter director. “The Shelter Board is diligently working with governmental leaders

Prepare now for next year’s garden Question: Should I go ahead and rototill the garden and apply fertilizer now for next year’s garden? I had a lot of tomato and squash problems this year. My garden is finished! Answer: You Mike can reduce Klahr the risk of HORTICULTURE some comCONCERNS mon problems next year by getting rid of leftover plant debris in vegetable, flower

and fruit gardening areas this fall. Several diseasecausing fungi and bacteria spend the winter on plant debris, and can cause diseases the following growing season. Proper garden sanitation now can combat such diseases as early blight, mildews, gray mold fungus and various root rot and wilt disease problems. To combat diseases, remove all plants, except winter vegetables or cover crops, from the vegetable garden. It is especially important to completely clean out and destroy all diseased

plants in vegetable gardens and fruit plantings. Carefully dig up and remove decomposing roots to keep them from releasing disease-causing microbes into the soil. Also, remove spent blooms and foliage from flower gardens and shriveled, mummified fruits on or around fruit trees and grapevines. Garden debris that is not severely diseased is a wonderful addition to a compost pile. A good pile will heat up and completely decompose the remains in a few months. Gardeners who decide

not to remove old plants should till gardening areas this fall to break dead materials into smaller pieces and then work them into the soil. Plant debris decomposes more rapidly when buried than when left on the soil surface. This reduces populations of diseasecausing organisms that could cause problems next year. Another reason to till the garden in the fall is so it is ready to plant in early March, instead of having to wait until a rainy spring allows plowing or tilling the garden.


Time to test your house for radon ty and with or without a basement. Radon is rather unpredictable. Your neighbor may have high levels of radon while you don’t. Testing is an easy, inexpensive process. The Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Surgeon General recommend testing all homes below the third floor.

Two types of radon tests are available: a short-term test and a long-term test. The shortterm test is conducted for two to seven days. A long-term test takes a year. The long-term test is the most desired option. Radon test kits are placed in the home and left undisturbed for the

Testing is the only way to know if radon is a problem in your home. With cooler weather upon us, we’ll be spending more time indoors. We may also be spending more time in a baseDiane ment that Mason has beEXTENSION come a NOTES family or entertainment room. If radon is in our home, our exposure may increase. Radon gas originates from the natural radioactive decay of uranium in soil, rocks and water. Radon typically moves up through the ground and can enter your home through cracks in poured foundation slabs and walls, hollow block walls and openings around floor drains, pipes and sump pumps. Your home traps radon inside where it can build up. Radon can be a problem in any home whether old or new, well-sealed or draf-

Soil test now to see if your garden needs phosphorus, potassium, lime or sulfur. If so, these could be applied in the fall.

Enjoy an afternoon of coffee and tea, homemade cookies and music and an opportunity to view, bid and purchase a variety of dolls and auction items. The event is open to the public. Admission and parking are free. Cash, checks or credit cards will be accepted for the auction.

Residents urged to reduce risk of rabies exposure by avoiding bats Several Northern Kentucky families have gotten a rude awakening this summer: They awoke to find bats flying around their bedrooms, hanging on curtains or lying on a blanket. Beyond the initial shock of realizing a wild animal had entered their homes, these families are finding out that they are at risk for rabies. The connection between bats in a home and rabies is due to three factors. First, bats are com-

monly infected with the rabies virus. Ninety percent of rabies fatalities in the United States in recent years were attributed to bat exposures, and 5 to 10 percent of all bats tested for rabies in Kentucky are positive. Second, bats have tiny, sharp teeth and often leave no bite marks, making it difficult to determine whether someone has been bitten; thus, a person who is sleeping, is under the influence of medication or alcohol, or a

child cannot be sure whether he/she has been bitten. If the bat in question is not available for testing, then the Health Department will typically recommend that those involved undergo rabies vaccination. Third, if a person is exposed to the virus and left untreated, rabies causes neurological disease and death. For more information on rabies, visit
