Minter maintains Campbell County’s plans By Chris Mayhew

Cindy Minter has moved from chairwoman of the Campbell County and Municipal Planning and Zoning Commission into the county job of director of planning and zoning. Minter started work as Campbell County’s professional planner Sept. 23; her office is in the Campbell County Administration Building, 1098 Monmouth St., Newport. She had been a member of the county planning commission since 2006, appointed by Judge-executive Steve Pendery. SHe has resigned to take the director’s

job. The commission provides zoning for parts of the county not incorporated in a city, and also for the cities of Crestview, Melbourne, Silver Grove, Southgate and Woodlawn. “She is a highly-experienced planner and manager, and she’s worked 30 years in the private sector providing services to the city, county and state governments,” said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine. The county’s previous director of planning, Peter Klear, in the job since 2001, was fired by Campbell County Fiscal Court during its July 10 meeting. No reason was given why he was

fired. Minter said she has no plans to work on any major projects in her new job, but an update of the county’s comprehensive plan adopted in May of 2008 is being considered. The plan approved in 2008 was a major revision. “The plan that we have right now just needs to really have minor adjustments to it and it’s really solid,” Minter said. The plan included new ideas including an agriculture cluster development zone. So far, there have been two agriculture cluster developments creSee PLANS, Page A2

Campbell County has set up an appeals board to hear claims from property owners about the amount of 911phone service tax they are being charged. County property tax bills are scheduled to be mailed Wednesday, Oct. 30, and will include the $45 per occupied residential or commercial unit fee, said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine. For owners of a single family home the fee will be $45. For owners of apartment buildings or other multi-unit properties, the $45 fee will be charged for each occupied unit. Fiscal Court approved the new property tax add-on in August to pay for 911 dispatching and switch the funding away from a $3 per month landline telephone bill fee. Fiscal Court appointed the 911 property tax fee appeals board at its Oct. 16 meeting by a 3-1 vote. The three members of the appeals board were recommended by Judge-executive Steve Pendery and approved by Fiscal Court, said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine. The board members are: » Matt Elberfeld, county finance director,



» Cindy Minter, county director of planning and zoning and » Hank Pogue V of Fort Thomas. “Mr. Pogue is a rental property owner himself and very familiar in the real estate world,” Horine said Commissioner Ken Rechtin said he did not vote in August for the new way to fund 911, so he also voted against approving the appeals board. “I don’t believe that we’re headed down the right direction here and obviously some other folks don’t or they wouldn’t have filed suit against us,” Rechin said. The Greater Cincinnati/ Northern Kentucky Apartment Association filed a 21-page complaint in county Circuit Court Sept. 21, along with nine other apartment ownership groups and the owner of an occupied individual residential unit. The suit alleges the county does not have the authority under the Kentucky Constitution to charge a 911property tax fee. Campbell County Attorney Steve Franzen said the lawsuit See APPLEALS, Page A2

The county also provides HVAC inspections, but not building inspections, for Bellevue, Fort Thomas, Highland Heights and Wilder. The Campbell County and Municipal Planning and Zoning Commission is an appointed board providing zoning oversight for parts of the county not incorporated in a city, and also for Crestview, Melbourne, Silver Grove, Southgate and Woodlawn.

Growing up, Minter said her family was involved in small residential contracting. “Basically, my family built single family homes and we also built apartment complexes,” she said. “It’s part of how I

grew up, and I had the benefit of applying it to a larger scale all over the U.S.” Minter said the role of her county department is helping businesses and citizens of Campbell County meet the intent of the zoning codes. “If they want to build a home or business, we want to make sure we’re meeting the inent of our planning and zoning codes,” she said.


years ago, and those pieces reflect her immersion in domesticity. “It’s really a culmination of a body of work that has to do with daily life,” she said. “A lot of design artifacts interact in the domestic environment, and after my children were born, I became more conscientious about what I put into the world and what happens to it. A lot of these concerns are more woven into our societal conscious now, but at the time when I made them, there didn’t seem to be a lot of attention pointed in that direction.” Bits of vintage wrap-

Rechtin said the interlocal agreement with the county, Newport and Fort Thomas to create and operate the 911 dispatch center in Newport needs to be reworked. The cities of Newport and Fort Thomas need to be involved in coming up with a solution to how to fund 911 dispatching, he said. Horine said the only appeal the county’s 911 property tax ordinance allows is to question the number of units a property owner is being charged for on the tax bill.

Chance encounter fills Cups of Kindness By Stephanie Salmons

FLORENCE — A chance encounter between a shopper and a sales associate will benefit the women at Brighton Recovery Center for Women. Lisa Ball, who owns the Florence-based Velocity Bike and Bean with her husband, said she was shopping at the Crestview Hills Dillard’s when she met Priscilla Shanks, a certified fitter in the store’s lingerie department – who pointed out the bra clearance rack. “While I was browsing the selection and remarking at the incredible prices, Priscilla said, ‘If I could, I would buy all of these and donate them to a local homeless shelter,’” Ball recounts. “At that point, a light bulb went off in my head.” Having worked in the

past with Brighton Center, Ball says she couldn’t believe she didn’t think of the idea on her own. That’s when she told Shanks about the Brighton Recovery Center for Women in Florence and that she thought the facility would appreciate having new undergarments. “With Breast Cancer Awareness month coming up, I saw a wonderful, and extremely affordable, opportunity to do my part,” Ball said. As Shanks helped her ring up “armfuls of bras,” Shanks mentioned she had Dillard’s gift cards of her own that she wanted to donate toward the purchase. “I walked out of the store with 50 bras,” Ball said. “The receipt ended up being as tall as Priscilla and the bag about as wide as me. “We exchanged email addresses, hugged and re-

marked at how we both felt we were destined to meet that evening,” she said. Ball later asked Shanks if she would be interested in going with her to the center to do professional fittings for the women

there and giving them each a new bra. Shanks was interested. But Ball went farther with her philanthropy – she started Velocity Bike and Bean’s Cups of Kindness campaign. For a $5 donation, the campaign

our women improve themselves or feel like the community is behind them, I’m 100 percent behind it,” said center director Anita Prater. Ball said it’s likely they’ll have to go back for additional undergarments because those on the clearance rack “were in rather odd sizes,” but the center will get all of the bras. According to Ball, they now have a total of 75 bras to donate. Since the undergarments have already been paid for, proceeds from the initiative will go to a woman at the center undergoing breast cancer treatment, she said. Donations can be made through the end of October by visiting Velocity at 7560 Burlington Pike, Florence, or online at

THINK sheds light on paranormal activity By Amy Scalf


Things that go bump in the night don’t scare Jon Huber. For one thing, he’s a magician, so he understands sleight of hand and creating illusions. He knows how those things work. As leader of The Hauntings Investigators of Northern Kentucky, or THINK, Huber is also a paranormal investigator, which he’ll explain is dif-

ferent than a ghost hunter. “Mostly, people want you to come in and say, ‘This is a ghost,’” he said. “We don’t do that. We try to do the opposite. We verify what’s happening, and then come up with factual reasons why those things are happening.” “We’re two skeptics,” said Tony Trudeau, Huber’s partner in THINK. “Ninety-nine percent of the time you can explain weird things that are happening. There are normal explanations for things that people think are para-

normal.” Huber and Trudeau have each had personal experiences that aren’t easily explained. Like when Trudeau heard mysterious footsteps in his home or when his child’s toys would make sounds even though they were turned off. They actually don’t have an explanation for the toys, but Huber said most eerie sounds “are noises houses make,” like water pressure in pipes. Neighbors and animals outside also contribute to

some unusual sounds. “I haven’t really seen anything that made me say that there is something out there that can’t be explained,” Trudeau said. “I’ve heard things.” The pair have toured Waverly Hills Sanitorium in Louisville, and they’ve also investigated buildings in Northern Kentucky that people believed were haunted. According to, Waverly Hills has been popularized on paranormal television as being one of the “mosthaunted”

hospitals in the eastern United States. He said historic areas such as Covington are “ripe” for investigations.

Huber said THINK has captured voices, what an investigator would call electronic voice phenomena or EVP, during studies. He’s also seen the lights go on and off in empty rooms and buildings. “If you go looking for a ghost, you’ll find one,” said Huber. “We find evidence and then try to explain it. Mostly, we find rational reasons for why things happen, and set people at ease. We just try to help people and further the field.” For more about THINK’s work, visit, or find them on Facebook.

CASA program expands into Campbell County By Amy Scalf

Campbell County is now is part of the Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA, program for children. The program, which started July 1, is an extension of the existing Kenton County program, which has provided support for 154 of Kenton’s 800 children involved in family court cases involving abuse or neglect. “Obviously we need more volunteers,” said Nicky Jeffries, executive director of CASA for Kenton and Campbell counties. “I’d like to at least double the number of cases we serve in the next two to three years.” Two training orientation sessions for new CASA volunteers will be at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 16, at the Kenton County CASA Office in the Kenton County Building, 303 Court St., in

Covington. For more information, call 859-392-1791 or email Jeffries at nicky@casafor Before now, children involved in family court in Campbell County had a social worker, who may only be able to visit each child once a month, but Jeffries said CASA volunteers usually visit once or twice a week. “When a child has a CASA volunteer, their cases are closed three times faster. It’s just the simple fact of having one person who is there in the best interest of the child to share information. They work with teachers and therapists and social workers, and that’s what helps close those cases sooner and what helps those children find permanency sooner,” she said. “A volunteer is a powerful voice for a child.” Jeffries said the program is now serving three cases involving 12 chil-

dren in Campbell County, and that Campbell has fewer children in the court system than Kenton County. She said there are from one to eight children per case. “We serve families, so there are usually two to four children in each case,” she said. Volunteers can train and advocate for children in either or both counties. “If someone lives in Campbell County and wants to work with Campbell County children, that’s fine, or they can work in both counties. It’s the same for Kenton,” she said. “All three counties have children who suffer from abuse or neglect who can be served.” Volunteers must complete a 30-hour training program, be 21 years old or older, and pass a child abuse background check as well as a state and nationwide criminal background check.

Kenton County Family Court Judge Christopher Mehling swears in the 2012 class of CASA volunteers at the Kenton County Justice Center. PROVIDED

The process is designed to make sure that people who volunteer don’t have a history of abusing or neglecting children. “We have to

make sure these children are safe with our volunteers,” Jeffries said. Completing the training program also allows volunteers to become

board members. “Sometimes people go through the program to find they’re maybe not comfortable advocating for a child personally,” said Jeffries. “We always need board members.” She said both volunteer positions have different levels of involvement, the board meets once a month but members are involved on different committees. “Our volunteers spend between five and 20 hours each month with our program,” she said. “Sixty percent of our volunteers are full-time workers who help in the evenings or on weekends.”

Passenger, cargo traffic up at Cincinnati airport The number of local passengers using Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) have been up for six straight months, a key indicator of increasingly positive momentum for the region’s largest commercial airport. The airport also has experienced year-over-year increases in its cargo traffic, as well as concession and parking revenues. For the sixth consecutive month, CVG has experienced year-over-year growth in its origin, or local, passengers. Origin



passengers in the month of July 2013 increased 6 percent while in August 2013 traffic increased approximately 5 percent compared to origin passengers in the prior year. Overall, year-to-date, origin traffic is 2.4 percent higher compared to 2012.

“All of the passenger, cargo and revenue metrics are moving in the right direction and showing a very positive story of reinvention at CVG,” said James Huff, chairman of the Kenton County Airport Board. At the height of the airport’s passenger volume in 2005, approximately 75 percent of its passengers were connecting through the airport on their way to another destination, with only 25 percent percent of its passengers originating from CVG.

State school data indicates progress Community Recorder

Student performance, college- and career-readiness and the number of students graduating from high school are improving, according to data released by the Kentucky Department of Education. “The statewide data clearly show we are making proHolliday gress, though slower than we would like,” said Kentucky Education Commissioner Terry Holliday. “We’ve raised expectations and aligned them with what students need to be success-

ful. We are moving in the right direction toward the goal of providing a world-class education for every Kentucky student and ensuring all children graduate college/careerready.” Overall student performance showed improvement from 2012 with the percentage of proficient and distinguished students increasing in nearly every subject at every grade level, students in groups that have historically had achievement gaps are also performing at a higher level. Since Senate Bill1passed in 2009, the state has focused on better preparing students for life after high school. In 2013, the college/career-readiness rate jumped to 54.1 percent – up from 34 percent in 2010.

Brossart regroups with 37th District title By James Weber

ALEXANDRIA — No matter the school or sport, teams sometimes have an emotional letdown after winning an All “A” state championship. The Bishop Brossart High School boys soccer team had a bit of that malaise after winning the All “A” state cup Sept. 29. The letdown, combined with tough opponents, resulted in three straight defeats to end the regular season. The Mustangs had only one loss when they left Elizabethtown with the All “A” trophy. “We took a little slide at the end and hopefully we’re starting to get back up to the top,” Brossart head coach Brian Goller said.

Brossart is getting that winning feeling back after claiming another trophy, the championship of the 37th District, in a 2-0 win over Scott Oct. 17. Brossart, with a 16-4 overall record, was set to start play in the 10th Region tourney the week of Oct. 21. “I feel amazing. It’s a great feeling,” sophomore Dylan Geiman said. “We were on a three-game losing streak. We came out tonight and we knew we were going to play well, and we did.” Geiman scored eight minutes into the game and assisted on the team’s second goal early in the second half, a header from senior forward Jake Jennings. “I haven’t really been playing well,” Geiman said. “I felt like I had to talk to myself and get myself momentum. I did

that, I went out and proved to myself I could do it.” Geiman was all-tourney with Jake Jennings and Drew Miller. Geiman’s performance was key for a team that relies on offensive balance. “He only has six goals, but I think all his goals were huge,” Goller said. “In big games, he steps up. It was a really physical game. We finished off a couple of opportunities that we left on the field last time we played them.” Brossart became the fourth team to hold the Eagles scoreless this year, shutting down Scott forwards Luke Treadway and Blake Schneider, two of the best players in Northern Kentucky.

NEWPORT — Some teams might panic

after a 1-4 start to the season. Newport Central Catholic’s football team has been here before, and remained unfazed after a challenging start. The defending Class 2A state champions dropped four in a row to big-school teams (one from Class 5A, three from Class 6A), but have reeled off threestraight wins since district play began. The contributions of the Thoroughbreds’ sophomore class have keyed the turnaround. “Our young kids are starting to get experience and figure out what they’re doing,” head coach Dan Wagner said. “They’ve looked big kids in the eye and played them tough.” Gaining experience at the varsity level is crucial for any underclassman. Getting that experience against three big schools all currently ranked in the top five of the Enquirer Coaches’ Poll forced the Thoroughbreds’ sophomores to grow up fast.

“The kids are settling in,” said Wagner. “We only have 12 seniors, we’re not loaded with upperclassmen. We needed some young guys to step up.” The gains made by sophomore linemen Kameron Winters, Konner Carmack, and Maleek Lawrence have spurred the Thoroughbreds to a threegame winning streak.

TMC Notes

» Thomas More College junior football running back Domonique Hayden, sophomore volleyball outside hitter Jessica Knaley (St. Henry) and women’s soccer forward Olivia Huber (Newport Central Catholic) earned weekly honors from the Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC) office Oct. 21. Hayden was named the PAC Football Offensive Player of the Week. He rushed 27 times for 252 yards and four touchdowns in the Saints’ 42-21 PAC victory over Thiel College. In the game, he set the Thomas More career record for points (306) and tied the school record for rushing touchdowns with 45. Knaley was named the PAC Volleyball Player of the Week. She helped lead Thomas More to a 5-0 record last week against PAC opponents. She hit a combined .371 with a team-leading 49 kills (2.72 kills/set), 10.0 total blocks and six service aces, while also piling up 20 digs for the Saints. Huber was named the PAC Women’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week for the second straight week. She recorded hat tricks in each of the Saints’ two PAC victories last week and only played a combined 82 minutes. Huber leads the PAC in points (39) and goals (16) and is tied for the top spot in assists (seven) with Clark.

each week, but we feel that we can make another run like last year,” said Wagner. There was no panic after the slow start. Injuries didn’t help, either. Against Dixie Heights Sept. 20, the Thoroughbreds were down seven starters, including four two-way starters. Seven sophomores started on defense in the 36-7 loss. The team’s record at the midway point of the season was not as important as the progress the young squad was making. “We knew going in, and as a coach, you have to be realistic,” said Wagner. “We hoped to steal a couple games, and we got one.” Even though the team never considered folding as the losses and injuries piled up, getting on a winning streak has helped the team’s morale. The defending state champs are building confidence each week. “(Winning) makes a big difference, but the attitude in practice has been good all year,” Wagner said. “I’ve gotta give our kids credit. They never lost faith.” There is still room for improvement, especially mental errors. The type of mistakes that the ‘Breds are making now could prove costly come tournament time. Fortunately, the roster is back to nearly full strength. “Knock on wood, we’re as healthy as we can be this time of year,” Wagner said. “We just need to get smarter and stop committing dumb penalties.”

Things are simpler than normal in Northern Kentucky as the district races reach their final weeks. Here is a look at the playoff picture as all districts will play their final seeding games this weekend: Class 1A, District 4: Beechwood 5-3 (2-0), Bellevue 4-5 (1-1), Ludlow 3-5 (1-1), Dayton 2-6 (0-2). Ludlow plays at Beechwood and Bellevue at Dayton. Beechwood wins the district if it beats the Panthers as expected. A massive Ludlow upset gives the Panthers the title unless Bellevue wins as well, then it would be a threeway tie at the top. A Dayton win over Bellevue likely creates a threeway tie for second, with Bellevue likely to get the two seed if that happens though it would come down to next week. Class 2A, District 5: Gallatin County 6-2 (3-0), Walton-Verona 7-2 (3-1), Carroll County 3-5 (1-2), Owen County 2-7 (1-2),

Trimble County 0-8 (0-3). Walton has already lost to Gallatin so Gallatin has the tiebreaker for the top seed. The Bearcats have the two seed but could tie for the district title if Gallatin loses this week to Owen Co. Class 2A, District 6: NCC 4-4 (3-0), Lloyd Memorial 6-3 (2-1), Newport 3-5 (2-1), Holy Cross 1-7 (1-2), Brossart 2-6 (0-4). Newport plays at Lloyd and Holy Cross at Newport Central Catholic. NewCath has won the district title even with a loss to Holy Cross because of head-to-head tiebreaker with the Lloyd/Newport winner. Newport and Lloyd play off for the two seed, with the loser claiming the three. Holy Cross will be the four seed even if it pulls off the big upset of NewCath. Brossart is out of the playoffs. Class 4A, District 7: Highlands 8-0 (3-0), Covington Catholic 6-2 (1-1), Holmes 5-3 (1-1), Harrison County 2-7 (0-3). Holmes plays at Cov Cath Saturday in a playoff game for the two seed

and first-round home game. Highlands has won the title. Class 5A, District 5: South Oldham 6-3 (4-0), Scott 7-1 (2-1), Conner 6-2 (2-1), Cooper 2-6 (0-3), Grant County 1-7 (0-3). The highly competitive districts has simple scenarios. South Oldham has won the title. The Scott goes to Hebron to take on Conner, with the winner taking the two seed and first-round home game, and the loser the three. Cooper travels to Grant County in a winner-take-all game for the fourth playoff spot. The loser will not make the playoffs. Class 6A, District 6: Simon Kenton 9-0 (4-0), Campbell County 5-3 (2-1), Dixie Heights 5-3 (1-2), Ryle 2-7 (1-2), Boone County 0-8 (0-3). SK has won the district title. Ryle plays at Dixie Heights and Campbell goes to Boone. Campbell has clinched the two seed even with an upset loss at Boone because the Camels have head-to-head over the Dixie/Ryle winner.

touches. When they got the ball, we just tried to make sure we didn’t give up our ground.” Brossart drew the short straw in the 10th Region. Because there are only six teams in the region, two of the three district champions received byes. Brossart is the one that didn’t, playing Clark County Oct. 22 after Recorder print deadlines. A win gives them Harrison County in

a 5:30 p.m. semifinal on Thursday. The final is 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26. The tourney is at Montgomery County. “We get to go into the regional with a little bit of momentum,” Goller said. “If we continue to move the ball and keep the ball on the ground. We’re able to attack from different spots. We have a lot of different weapons out there.”

Family child care have hidden treasures Earlier this month, guest columnist Karen Middendorf wrote about families in need of high-quality programs for their children, but who are often unable to afford it; especially with drastic state cuts to child-care assistance. One affordable option could be inhome family child care. In-home family child care providers Tess are an affordHammons able, quality COMMUNITY option for PRESS GUEST COLUMNIST families in a warm, homelike setting. In addition to costing less than child care centers, independent child care providers offer more one-to-one interaction, as the group in their care is smaller than a child care center setting. Many family child care providers also offer care outside of daytime hours to ensure a safe environment for children whose parents or guardians work second and third shifts. Jenny Marquis is a family child care provider at her home in Elsmere. Last week, she took the six children in her care (including one of her own) to the pumpkin patch to gather pumpkins. Instead of gutting and carving, they left the pulp and seeds inside the pumpkins, added topsoil, and learned about how pumpkins grow. She brings the children out to check on the pumpkins each day and discuss what’s happening to the seeds. They also gathered more pumpkins to paint – painting is a great way to nurture cog-

nitive development, motor skills, sensory integration, creativity, and much more. Jenny also got them a pumpkin to open up for carving so they could experience taking the pulp out and use the seeds for crafts and counting games. The children range in age from 1 to 3 years old, so she is careful to provide activities that are both age-appropriate and engaging. Jenny speaks of the children as if they were her own: “The best part about it is watching them learn and grow ... to be there when the babies sit up, start to learn letters – it makes you feel like you’re doing something really great.” She adds, “It’s important to sculpt these kids to be great young adults and to be great in school. I want to help make sure they succeed.” Likewise, parents who leave children in her care do not take this for granted. The most recent stack of letters to her overflows with gracious praise. Children Inc. supports independent family child care

providers by means of financial support through billing management, United Way assistance, and USDA Food Program. The program also offers free consultation and program evaluation to enhance the quality of family child care homes, as well as free professional development and networking opportunities. Children Inc. is happy to help build quality providers and empower them to become professionals in child development. To those who turn their dining rooms into play areas; taking on the village’s children, nurturing and teaching them during the crucial early years; offering a solution to working families who want a less costly experience without sacrificing quality: thank you.

That just burns me up

I giggled the other day as I remembered a phrase my mom used while we were growing up, to let us know she was really mad about something: “That just burns me up!” Although I laughed as I reminisced with my chilJulie House dren, I also COMMUNITY PRESS rememGUEST COLUMNIST bered that when my mother did use that phrase she was serious. It meant that someone or something had pushed her to her breaking point and things were going to change. Later in that same week I heard a testimony from a young man that caused me to think of my mom’s phrase in a whole new way. The man stated that God had worked in him so powerfully and used traumatic circumstances in his life to “burn off the things that are not of Him (God), and refine him.” In other words, God “burned him up!” But what about that word “refining;” knowing that the

bible speaks of God refining us as “silver is refined,” I became curious. (It must have some significance; it is used in some tense seven times in the bible.) The online Miriam-Webster Dictionary defines refine as “removing an unwanted substance in something; or to improve something by making small changes.” Notice that refining is also a verb. In other words, it’s an action word, and if you’ve ever been refined, you’ve felt the burn. The beauty in the process of refinement is that we all come out shining like a precious stone. Each time the word “refining” is used in the bible it is associated with rich gems like silver and gold. Gems that are not destroyed in a fire, just perfected. In Psalm 66:10, 12 the Psalmist is praising God for his awesome works, stating “For you, O God, have tested us; you have refined us as silver is refined ... we went through the fire and through water; but you brought us to rich fulfillment.” The bible also tells us that through the process of



refinement we will come to know Christ more fully and intimately (which happens to be his most important goal for our lives.) “I will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on my name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘This is my people;’ and each one will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’” (Zechariah 13:9) If you are in the middle of your fiery trial at this moment, may you find hope, knowing completely, that through the fire, you are perfected; the unwanted will be removed and you will be left as precious as silver and gold walking more closed than you ever have with your Savior. Or in the words of my mother, let it “burn you up!” Julie House is a former resident of Campbell County and graduate of Newport Central Catholic and NKU.

What is library board trying to hide? Over the past few months there have been a number of articles written regarding the lawsuit against the Campbell County library board. In those articles individuals, as well as the tea Party, have been portrayed as evildoers wanting to obstruct the intellect of children and destroy the library system. But this is simply not true. Kenneth C. The library Moellman Sr. COMMUNITY PRESS lawsuit had nothing to do GUEST COLUMNIST with a quest to “destroy knowledge,” as some have alleged, and everything to do with a self-selected bureaucracy that is deaf to the concerns of the taxpayers they purport to serve. The plaintiffs in the lawsuit against the library board exercised their right to challenge an un-elected library board’s authority to raise property taxes outside the capacity of Kentucky state law. It was the un-elected and unaccountable library board and director that chose to follow the path they are currently following. The library board had multiple opportunities to avoid a lawsuit and resolve the taxation issue. The plaintiffs offered to settle the case out of court if the library board would agree to keep the tax rate at 7.4 cents per hundred-dollar valuation and seek voter approval for future tax increases. The library board refused. Even after the two circuit court judge’s decisions ruled in favor of the plaintiff’s, they not only made the same aforementioned proposal to the library board, they also offered to waive their right to a

tax refund. But once again, the library board refused the offer and made no attempt to suggest any alternate solutions. The un-elected library board wants absolute control over our tax dollars without any voter input, and they continue to lobby for that ability. It is obvious that they favor taxation without representation. Several writers have expressed concerns about how vital library services may have to be curtailed if the lawsuit against the library board is successful. But since when are programs such as LEGO building contests, brew your own beer or how to make dog biscuits and a sweater for your dog considered vital services? Are these truly vital services? Are these activities worthy of our hard-earned tax dollars? Most citizens are unaware that the library board has twice denied requests by the Campbell County cable board to film and air library board meetings. The cable board films and airs numerous city meetings and all fiscal court meetings so why not film library board meetings? What is the library board trying to hide? What is it that they don’t want the public to see or know? These actions by the Campbell County library board and director are examples of an out-of-touch self-governed bureaucracy that needs to have its taxing authority revoked. The library board and director should be required to begin answering to the taxpayers, which apparently is something that they do not want to do and will not do, unless the courts intervene and give taxing authority to only those elected by the people. Kenneth C. Moellman Sr. lives in Alexandria.

Is Bevin really a Democrat

I was pleased to see that the Boone County GOP has decided to not endorse any candidate in the primary race for U.S. Senate next year. Though I think they would have been smarter to have endorsed Senator McConnell. But, then again, at least they didn’t endorse Matt Bevin. Bevin lost my Ted Smith vote when he COMMUNITY PRESS announced his GUEST COLUMNIST opposition to Sen. Mitch McConnell. He sounded like a Democrat. He spouted the “been around too long” barb just as Democrats do. As a 75-year-old, I don’t appreciate that comment. It was a slap at anyone like me who is “seasoned” in life. Bevin brings to mind the rumor that “liberal” Democrats have joined the tea party to sabotage Republicans. Based on tea party House and Senate members’ recent behavior in Congress, Dr. Seuss looks good. Maybe Bevin is a Democrat mole. Generally, the tea party has been stupidly making three big mistakes. First, many Tea Partiers attack

228 Grandview Drive, Fort Mitchell, KY 41017 654 Highland Ave., Fort Thomas, KY 41075 phone: 283-0404 email: web site:

Republicans when they should be attacking Democrats. They attack McConnell and not Democrat Harry Reid. Second, tea parties have injected candidates into Republican primaries, defeated the Republicans, then lost the general elections to the Democrats. That happened in four 2010 U.S. Senate races (Colorado, Delaware and Nevada) and at least once in 2012 (Indiana). Third, the tea parties don’t understand that they have to win general elections to accomplish their objectives of limited government, free markets and fiscal responsibility. Those are the objectives of all Republicans, Senator McConnell and me, by the way. Tea parties can win Republican primary elections because of the high number of conservative Republicans. But, tea-party extremism drives centrist and moderate voters away and they lose the general elections to the Democrats. Bevin and his tea party supporters could give Senator McConnell’s seat to the Democrats in 2014. Perhaps that is Bevin’s intent. Perhaps Bevin is really a Democrat in a tea pot. Ted Smith lives in Park Hills.

CRESTVIEW HILLS — Thomas More College’s new president says the institution is “open for business.” David Armstrong has been reaching out to the community since he stepped into his new role July 1 as the school’s 14th president. He was formally installed Oct. 18. “It’s a priority for us to look for partnerships for the mutual benefit of both Thomas More and business entities,” said Armstrong. Besides his personal meetings with business leaders, Armstrong greeted them en masse at an Eggs ‘N Issues informational breakfast meeting with the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce on Oct. 15. “Every business leader I’ve met with, I’ve asked, ‘What can Thomas More do for you,’” he said. “Sometimes that’s a little surprise for them. They think I’m going to ask for something, but I’d much rather find out how we can help then first. We can provide great services to all our constituencies, especially other economic drivers in this region.” Crestview Hills Mayor Paul Meier said he’d like to see the college become more involved with the business park adjacent to campus. “Thomas More’s ties to the business community could be strengthened,” said Meier. “We’ve always had a good relationship with the college, but I agree with President Armstrong that it’s something that needs to be strengthened.” Armstrong said he’s working with

David A. Armstrong’s wife, Leslie, and their children, Johanna and David, watch as he is inaugurated as president of Thomas More College.PATRICK REDDY/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER David A.

nearby businesses, including St. Elizabeth Healthcare, to see how they can help each other. “Whether it’s internships or coops for students, or the expertise of our faculty, or just a place to meet and get great food or have an event,

we can do all of those things,” said Armstrong. “Thomas More is a huge asset to the community,” said State Sen.

Chris McDaniel, R-Taylor Mill. “Better than one-third of college graduates in the state come out of private schools, but they account for less than 5 percent of our higher education budget. Private colleges are doing a great job, and at Thomas More, 80 percent of their graduates stay in our area. It really is a great local university and a real community resource.” Armstrong said Thomas More’s graduates become community and business leaders. “We are the producers of excellent talent for openings, job creation and entrepreneurship,” he said. “That’s what we do. We produce graduates through a rigorous academic program who are equipped with the skill set to engage the world with integrity for their whole lives. They leave here with a values-based liberal arts education, and they have the integrity to make the right decisions when tough times come.” Although he said other institutions of higher learning are bigger and have more students, Thomas More “has been here for almost 100 years. It’s always been here and always produced great graduates.” “So many times, graduates have told me how Thomas More transformed their lives, and these people are going out and transforming the world,” said Armstrong. “As a business leader, I don’t think you can ask for anything more than a transformative leader.”

Scare up some treats for Halloween

I didn’t realize that Halloween is the second most commercially successful and decorated holiday right behind Christmas. We decorate with produce from the garden, like birdhouse gourds, pumpkins, winter squash and Rita field corn. Heikenfeld Pretty generic RITA’S KITCHEN compared to a lot of folks. Halloween is fun for me since I get to see the little ones in their costumes and go “begging” with them. I also learned that the kids don’t use the word “begging” and have no clue as to what it means. I have fun telling them about the meaning and how my siblings and I went “begging” through our neighborhood when we were kids oh, so long ago.

Deb Goulding’s bourbon bacon caramel popcorn I promised you this recipe and you’ll be glad I did. Deb, executive chef at the Price Hill Kroger, was a guest on my cable show. She made her nowfamous bourbon bacon caramel popcorn. Definitely an adult snack for Halloween! For my traditional caramel corn recipe, check out my blog. 3 strips applewood smoked bacon 1 3 oz. bag popcorn, plain

(popped) ⁄2 cup butter, unsalted 1 cup dark brown sugar 1 ⁄4 cup maple syrup 1 ⁄3 cup bourbon 2 tablespoons vanilla extract 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄4 teaspoon baking soda 1

Heat oven to 250 degrees. Fry bacon and set aside on papered tray to cool. Spread popcorn on papered tray and crumble bacon over top. In medium saucepan, add butter, brown sugar and maple syrup, then bring to boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add the bourbon, vanilla extract, salt and baking soda, and stir until thoroughly mixed. Pour the caramel mixture over the popcorn and stir to coat. Put in oven on sprayed cookie sheets for 1 hour and stir up the popcorn every 15 minutes.

Caramel popcorn, peanut and pretzel bars Doesn’t this sound good? I’m definitely going to make this treat. Thanks to Mary J. who gave this to me. “Salty and sweet all at the same time,” she said. 12 cups plain popped popcorn 1 generous cup salted peanuts or favorite salted nuts, coarsely chopped 4 cups coarsely chopped salted pretzels Caramel2 cups sugar 1 ⁄2 cup water

Rita shares the recipe for Deb Goulding’s famous bourbon bacon caramel popcorn.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD. ⁄3 cup whipping cream 2 cups mini marshmallows


Spray a 9-inch by 13-inch baking dish. Mix together popcorn, peanuts and pretzels. Put sugar and water in a nonstick or heavy medium saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Boil, without stirring, until mixture looks amber colored, about 8-12 minutes. Remove from heat and slowly whisk in heavy cream. Be careful cream will sputter. Stir in marshmallows until melted. Using sprayed spatula, pour over popcorn mixture until everything is coated. Pour into pan. Spay a piece of foil and use that to press mixture

evenly. Cool and cut into bars. Store at room temperature, covered.

Halloween hash in pumpkin bowls

This is fun for the kids. Let them scoop the flesh and seeds out of little pumpkins. The seeds can be roasted at about 300 degrees. I like to toss them with melted butter or olive oil, shake on some garlic powder, seasoning salt or cayenne pepper. You can do whatever you want with them. Roast for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. 1 pound lean ground beef 1 cup chopped onion 1 teaspoon garlic, minced 1 cup stewed tomatoes

Corn, start with 1 generous cup and go from there Chili powder, salt and pepper to taste 1 ⁄4 pound grated cheddar cheese plus extra for sprinkling on top Nachos or large Fritos for scooping

Cook beef, onion and garlic until meat is done. Add tomatoes and corn. Cover and simmer over low heat 10 minutes. Stir in cheese. Serve with nachos and more cheese.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Keep those Jack-OLanterns plump. Mix 2 tablespoons vinegar and a teaspoon of lemon juice into 3 cups of water. Brush over carved areas.

After it dries, rub carved surfaces with petroleum jelly.

Brisket follow-up from Rita’s Kitchen

The recipe for brisket called for slow cooking 9-12 hours for a 3-pound brisket. I bought a new slow cooker and the brisket was done in 7 hours. So just check after around 7 hours; if it needs more cooking, then continue to cook. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. Find her blog online at Cincinnati.Com/blogs.

Be aware that E-Quick debit card can have problems and it said, ‘Processing, please wait.’ In less then a minute it said, ‘Can’t process Howard this transAin action at HEY HOWARD! this time, try again later.’” When she tried again, Cafferky said she received a notice that there were insufficient funds in her account. She wanted $440, and knew the money was there, but received the same notice when she tried again to withdraw the funds.

Many people love to use debit cards to pay for things because they are fast and convenient. Even the state of Ohio uses such cards for child support payments. But a local woman said she ran into major problems recently when she tried to use her card. Joann Cafferky of Batavia has used an EQuick debit card from the child support bureau for several years without a problem. But she had an issue recently when she tried to withdraw money from an ATM machine. “I put my card in, entered my pin number

Later, after checking her child support account online, Cafferky said she learned, “When they processed it the first time they took my money out.” That happened even though the machine said it couldn’t be done and – more importantly – Cafferky never got the money. I went to the standalone ATM machine in Milford and found it was now working. The big problem is proving it wasn’t working correctly when Cafferky tried to withdraw her funds. She had complained to managers at Fifth Third Bank and the E-Quick card but

Pig Out benefits food distribution program Master Provisions will host Pig Out on Saturday, Nov. 2 to support its food distribution program in Northern Kentucky.

was told it could be several weeks before she’d get an answer. “It’s $440, and to me that’s a car payment and electric bill, my daughter’s lunch money. That’s what the money was for and I’m waiting on it and they’re telling me I’m going to have to wait 45 to 90 days,” Cafferky said. Cafferky said she had to borrow money from her family in order to pay her bills. In the meantime, I contacted Fifth Third Bank and the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services in Columbus, which manages the child support

payment program. Fifth Third bank workers checked the ATM machine records and found there was a problem on the day in question. They then returned the money to Cafferky’s E-Quick card. A spokesman for the state of Ohio tells me Cafferky and others do not have to use a debit card in order to get their child support money. They can get a check mailed to them or, better yet, they can have their money deposited directly into their bank account. That direct deposit is something I highly recommend because it not

only assures quick access to your funds, but it lets you avoid fees associated with that E-Quick card. You get one free withdrawal from the card each month, but then must pay 75 cents for each subsequent withdrawal – and those fees can add up. Cafferky said she agrees with me and will switch to direct deposit into her bank account. Howard Ain’s column appears bi-weekly in the Community Press newspapers.

needs. Coconut oil is more saturated than most other oils. It is solid at room temperature. Its natural melting point makes it attractive to candy makers. It is broken down in our bodies differently than some other kinds of oils. This is because of its high percentage of medium-chain triglycerides. These types of triglycerides are moved through the system and used as fuel leaving less to circulate through the body and be deposited in fat tissues. Promoters of using coconut oil have made many claims for its

health benefits over the years. It has been touted as a weight-loss aid, to improve memory in Alzheimer’s patients, and to improve cholesterol levels. Research has not proven any of these claims. There are two main types of coconut oil: virgin and refined. Virgin coconut oil is extracted from the fruit of fresh mature coconuts without the use of high temperatures or chemicals. It is considered unrefined. It has a light, sweet-nutty coconut flavor and aroma. It is useful in curries, and other dishes that are enhanced by its natural flavor. Refined coconut oil is made from dried coconut meat. It is usually chemically bleached and deodorized. Refined coconut oil is essentially tasteless. It is often used for general baking and medium-heat stir-frying or sautéing. When it comes to fats, health professionals recommend we consume mostly monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.

Keene is friend of cities State Rep. Dennis Keene (D – Wilder) was honored with a Friend of Kentucky Cities award recently at the 2013 Kentucky League of Cities Conference & Expo. The award is given by league of cities to legislators who perform outstanding work in the legislature advocating for issues that impact cities across the state. “I’ve worked diligently with Northern Kentucky cities to push forward on projects and partnerships in spite of economic obstacles. We have made incredible progress and I am proud to accept this award on behalf of the many people, businesses and organizations that have helped drive our success,” said Keene. “Cities appreciated representative Keene’s sponsorship and work in securing passage of historic alcohol reforms last session. Kentucky’s anti-

quated alcohol laws have long been an issue for local governments,” said J.D. Chaney, Kentucky League of Cities chief governmental affairs officer. Jon Steiner, executive director/CEO of the Kentucky League of Cities, said Keene, “It is an honor to recognize legislators with the Friend of Kentucky Cities award. We appreciate his leadership on the Governor’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Task Force and his work in the House allowed Senate Bill 13 to move forward and ultimately pass this session. This legislation addresses muchneeded changes to Kentucky’s alcohol statutes.” State Sen. Damon Thayer was recognized as the 2013 Big Hitter and league of citites Immediate Past President and Lyndon Mayor Susan Barto was honored as the 2013 City Advocate of the Year.

The County Circuit Court Clerks in the three Northern Kentucky counties participated in the 2013 Circuit Court Clerks Fall College recently in Lexington. The Administrative Office of the Courts provided the judicial education program for the state’s circuit court clerks. Attend were Boone County Circuit Court Clerk Dianne Murray, Campbell County

Circuit Court Clerk Taunya Nolan Jack and Kenton County Circuit Court Clerk John C. Middleton. The circuit court clerks attended courses on responding to requests for court records, handling domestic violence cases and working with self-represented litigants and defendants who have been assigned a public defender due to indigence. The college also provided a session on

court technology, including the Judicial Branch’s plans to develop a court case management system to replace the state’s aging system and bring eFiling to Kentucky. “It was an exciting day when the General Assembly gave the green light for a new case management system earlier this year,” said Murray, who is also president of the Kentucky Association of Circuit Court Clerks.

Bag these worms now!

Question: My spruces and arborvitae trees are not looking good. They have numerous, spindleshaped, 2- by 1/3-inch elongated cones hanging from the branches, some of which have turned brown. Is this an insect or a disease problem? My neighbor thinks the trees may have been damaged by bagworms. Answer: It sounds like your neighbor is correct. The cones are actually the homes of bagworms and their overwintering eggs. Picking the bags off by hand and disposing of them now is actually the best way to control bagworms in the fall, winter and early spring before the eggs have hatched. When many small bagworms are infesting evergreens, an insecticide may be needed to prevent serious damage.

The best time to apply an insecticide is while the larvae are still small (less than 1/2Mike inch long). Klahr In KenHORTICULTURE tucky, this CONCERNS is usually in June. Preventive treatment in the spring is often justified on plants that were heavily infested with bagworms the previous year. Bagworms are the larval (caterpillar) stage of a moth that is rarely seen. Only the males develop into typical moths capable of flight. The adult female is grublike and remains inside the bag until just before she dies. Bagworms pass the winter as eggs inside the bag that contained

the previous year’s female. In mid to late May the eggs hatch, and the tiny larvae crawl out from the end of the bag in search of food. By using silk and bits of plant material, they soon construct a small bag around their hind part that looks like a tiny, upright ice cream cone. As the larvae continue to feed and grow, they enlarge the bag enabling them to withdraw into it when disturbed. Older larvae strip evergreens of their needles and consume whole leaves of susceptible deciduous species, leaving only the larger veins. By early fall, the bags reach their maximum size of 1½ to 2 inches. At this time the larvae permanently suspend their bags (pointing downward) from twigs, and transform into the pupa or resting stage

before becoming an adult. Adults emerge from the pupal stage in early fall. Males are active fliers and fly in search of females which remain inside their bags. After the fertilized female has laid several hundred eggs inside her old pupal case within the bag, she drops from the bag and dies. The eggs remain in the bag until the following May, when the cycle begins again. There is one generation per year. Bagworms have two means of dispersing from plant to plant. Very young larvae may spin strands of silk and be carried fairly long distances by wind. Larger larvae may move short distances by crawling.

Come Write In to November days, Nov. 1, 8, 15 and 22. “There are so many stories worth sharing that are just lying dormant in someone’s imagination or memory,” said Roseanna Noel, Gateway Come Write In coordinator. “NaNoWriMo gives people a reason to stop saying, ‘I’ll write it all down one day’ and provides the catalyst for action.” The gatherings will offer refreshments, moral support and encouragement. The Come Write In support groups will meet in the Edgewood Campus library on the second floor of the Student Services Center at 790 Thomas More Parkway, Edgewood. The event is open to the public and no reservations are needed for the novel workshops or information sessions.
