Dayton buys, demolishes foreclosures By Chris Mayhew

DAYTON — In a bid to protect home values and neighborhoods, the City of Dayton is buying up and demolishing deteriorated foreclosed homes. “We very often are at the courthouse steps being the only bidder to buy the property, and very often we bid to the amount that is owed by back taxes,” said Dennis Redmond, city administrator. The city pays the taxes on a

foreclosed property to have a clear title, Redmond said. The goal is often to tear down the vacant and deteriorated house to make a neighborhood safe and viable, Redmond said. “And it’s not just city back taxes, it’s school district taxes, it’s county taxes, library taxes, conservation district taxes, health taxes and so on,” he said. The city pays the taxes including the penalty and the interest, Redmond said. “Other taxing jurisdictions are receiving what benefit that

there is at the expense of the Dayton taxpayer,” he said. Redmond said he knows other taxing districts might not have money to spare either, but raising the question to them is fair. “If you can’t waive your taxes how about partnering up with us and paying your fair share to rid the community of this property,” he said. Redmond said Dayton is in a unique position because speculative buyers are purchasing foreclosures elsewhere. “Making a speculative offer in

streets cost $5,400 to tear down and $4,000 in back taxes to buy, Redmond said. “In typical, ordinary, conditions we could recoup those funds,” he said. “But we’re not in those conditions,” he said. The city is asking for shortterm agreements or assistance with other taxing districts, and announced the idea at the Oct. 23 Campbell County Fiscal Court Mayor’s meeting, he said. Eminent domain through the

an affluent neighborhood is still a viable option, but making speculative offers in Dayton neighborhoods that have experienced 103 foreclosures in 2011 alone is not a viable option,” he said. The city’s purchase of two properties on Fourth Street in October 2012 is a good example of the issue confronting the city, Redmond said. For one property the city paid $6,000 in back taxes, and received a low bid of about $8,000 to tear the property down. The second house near the intersection of Fourth and Kenton


Poll workers essential By Chris Mayhew

COLD SPRING — Campbell County Clerk’s office will have more than 300 people working and monitoring the polls on Election Day Nov. 6 starting before sunrise and ending after sundown. The more than 12-hour day earns a poll worker $125. Call it a civic duty or a job, Campbell County Clerk Jack Snodgrass said the county relies on the poll workers to monitor and deliver the election results for tabulation at his office in Newport each election. Snodgrass retrains poll workers each year on how to do their jobs to insure the integrity of the voting process at each of 68 polling precincts. Each precinct has at least four poll workers evenly split between registered Democrats and Republicans. A crowd of about 50 poll workers, many of them retirees, filled a meeting room Oct. 24, for one of eight training sessions Snodgrass offered two weeks prior to the election. Snodgrass reminded poll workers to allow registered voters to

Winery mural captures rural tone

By Chris Mayhew

CAMP SPRINGS — Linus Enzweiler has known the farms and hills surrounding his family-run Camp Springs Vineyard are picturesque – so he called on artist to evoke the setting in a mural. Local artist Daniel Brooks Grove painted the mural on the side of the vineyard tasting room, at 6685 Four Mile Road, and talked about using the area as inspiration for future paintings, Enzweiler said. “He may come out and just

do some painting on his own of the valleys this fall,” Enzweiler said. Enzweiler said the mural of an antique tractor next to a red barn with rows of hills in the background and a U.S. flag evokes his own childhood, but doesn’t reflect the exact location of the vineyard and winery. “It’s the only outside mural in Camp Springs,” Enzweiler said. Enzweiler and his sons created three acres of vineyards seven years ago, opening the winery tasting room in 2009 as

part of the first Camp Springs Herbst (Autumn) Tour. Varieties of grapes grown include a Vidal Blanc, Cabernet Franc and Steuben, he said. The parking lot for the tasting room has been doubled in size in the past year to accommodate more guests, he said. The tasting room remains the only place where people can buy the wines. Enzweiler said opening the tasting room was an opportunity to talk with people in person regularly – something he missed when he retired as a loan officer after a 40-year ca-

reer in banking. “I just like meeting the people that come here,” he said. Enzweiler said he likes how the mural welcomes people to the winery and reminds people they are in an idyllic rural setting. “It just sets it out when people come down the driveway it just says something for the area,” he said.

The polls in Kentucky will open at 6 a.m. and close at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6. State law requires voters to produce identification to vote. Acceptable identification includes drivers license, social security card, credit card or another form of identification containing both a picture and a signature, according to the Kentucky State Board of Elections website The same website provides access to a “Where Do I Vote” section where voters can find out the location of their polling precinct.

Veterans Affairs home near Tower Park, and to commemorate that the area was once an active military fort. “We want people to remember the history of this area, and this was an army post,” Buckley said. “This is our way drawing attention to that and honoring our veterans.” Renaissance board member Linda Slone, who is working to organize the USO Dance, said the event is something that veterans and community members look forward to every

year. “For the disabled veterans who live at the VA, they don’t get out much, so this is a great way for them to get out and have some fun,” Slone said. The event features dinner, music and dancing, and is open to anyone, especially veterans. To honor the disabled veterans living at the VA, the board is collecting donations to cover the cost for each of them to come to the event, which is $10 each. “Through the help of

the community, we are able to shows these veterans a great time,” Slone said. “It’s just so nice to see them out interacting with others.” Slone said this year’s dance will feature The Avenues, a rhythm and blues band, and a fall theme with a fried chicken dinner. The board is also collecting donations for the free raffle they offer for the veterans. The following weekend, veterans, history enthusiasts and community members are invited to at-

tend the Salute the Veterans event, which will feature living history exhibits, a Civil War collection, a field kitchen serving food, an aviation art collection, and dioramas by the Sixth Scale Collector. Buckley said they are also trying to bring in a Blackhawk helicopter for visitors to see. For more information about the USO Dance, call Linda Slone at 441-3302 and for more information about the Salute to Veterans event call Debbie Buckley at 572-1225.


of a property – and an option the city typically does not pursue, he said. “Persons who are underwater with their mortgages don’t claim ownership, banks and commercial institutions that have these toxic properties don’t

want to claim them,” he said. Boarding up a property often doesn’t work because of vandals and youths often get into vacant buildings anyway as do thieves who steal the copper and other parts of a home, he said. “So it’s not only a public safety problem, then it becomes a blight in the neigh-

borhood,” Redmond said. Buying the homes helps maintain balanced and viable neighborhoods, but it’s also a drain on the treasury, he said. “But, we think we have improved the neighborhood,” Redmond said. “We certainly have reduced the number of complaints and calls.”

Franck said he is a Republican and see the work as a civic duty. “I’ve always been interested in politics, and it’s a good way to see it all come together,” Franck said. Franck said he he has been disappointed when voter turnout has been low at 14 percent in the past, but doesn’t expect that problem this year because Snodgrass has predicted a turnout of more than 70 percent because of the presidential election.

Campbell County trio ace ACT By Chris Mayhew

ALEXANDRIA — For Campbell County High School the number of perfection for 2012 is three. Seniors Jenna Garofolo, Andrew Perrin and Jared Wittrock, all aced the ACT, a college preparatory test, scoring a perfect 36. Perrin and Wittrock are both Alexandria residents, and Garofolo lives in Butler. Principal Renee Boots said she hasn’t heard three perfect ACT scores at one high school in Northern Kentucky before, and she is proud of the students. “It’s amazing to me that our school has three students with a 36,” Boots said. Perrin said his mother flagged him down and told him the news while he was on a baseball field catching a ball for the school team. “I was pretty happy, I just went back to the dugout, they

needed the ball,” he said. He celebrated with his teammates. “I went back in the dugout, and I was partying,” he said. Perrin said a score of 36 is “succeeding,” and something he did not expect. “I think just being in school overall, it’s just I was prepared,” he said. “I had good teachers.” Perrin’s plans include becoming a high school social studies teacher – and possibly attending Morehead State University or the University of Kentucky. Wittrock said he found out the surprising news by checking the ACT website two weeks after taking the test at the end of September. “It really helps with college applications and college searches,” Wittrock said. “It broadens my scope to where I can go to school. I mean, I’m looking all over the country. Even here at home, I’m looking.”

From left are Andrew Perrin and Jared Wittrock, both of Alexandria, and Jenna Garofolo of Butler. CHRIS MAYHEW/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER What is taught in classes was the best prep, Wittrock said. Wittrock said he doesn’t have his choices of colleges narrowed down beyond five schools, but plans to study chemical engineering.

Garofolo said science and math were her weakest areas, so she used a workbook to study in those areas before taking the test. “I love science, I want to major in chemistry or biochemistry

and do research for a corporation or something,” she said. “I just think that sounds really cool.” Garofolo said she found out her perfect score after she received a text from Wittrock at 6:30 a.m. asking what score she received. Garofolo said she looked them up on her phone immediately before she had to leave for school. She didn’t tell her parents because she didn’t want to wake them up. “So, when I came home after school my mom had bought me like flowers, and she was like, ‘Surprise,’” Garofolo said. Garofolo said her mother was disappointed to find out she already knew the result, but was still overjoyed. “She was like, ‘You should have woken me up for a 36 on the ACT,’” Garofolo said of her mother.

Students prepare for performance of ‘The Crucible’ By Amanda Joering

FORT THOMAS — The Performing Arts Center at Highlands High School is seeing a lot of activity these days while from the theater department prepare to perform the literary classic, Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible.” Set in the 1600s, The Crucible focuses on a young farmer, his wife and young servant girl who causes the wife’s arrest for witchcraft, leading to the Salem witch trials. Director Jason Burgess said he chose the play because the department hadn’t done literary classic in a couple years, with recent years’ shows including “Dividing the Estate,” “The Diviners,” “The Twelfth Night” and “Twelve Angry Jurors.” “Since it’s around Halloween and this is about the Salem witch trials, I thought it seemed like a good choice,” Burgess said. “I’d say by far this is the most dramatic piece we’ve done.” While the other plays have

been a little lighter, this one has a very serious tone, presenting a new challenge to the students. Burgess said one of the hardest parts about this piece for the students has been has been its dramatic nature. “They have to really be into it, really sell it,” Burgess said. “I’ve been telling them that they should go home exhausted after rehearsal.” The show includes 20 students in the cast and another 30 in the crew, all who have been great since they began working on the show in September, Burgess said. Even when he had to take some time off when his wife had a baby, Burgess said the students still got together to rehearse and prepare for the show. “They’ve been really dedicated, and it’s really going great,” Burgess said. Junior Caroline Gates, who plays Abigail Williams, the servant girl, said while she’s been in past productions, this role is something new for her.

Besides playing a lead role for the first time, Gates also gets to play the villain. “I’ve never done anything like this before, but I was really attracted to this role,” Gates said. “It’s been really challenging, being so over the top and loud, but I like it.” Burgess said unlike shows in the past, this piece doesn’t have a set that’s extravagant or overpowering. Instead, it is very outdoorsy looking and the audiences attention will be focused more by lighting than the set. “I wanted this play to be more about the words and the characters than the set,” Burgess said. The show opens at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1, and will also run at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3; 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 4 and 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5. Tickets are $8 for students and $10 for adults and can be purchased in advance at Any unreserved tickets can be purchased at the door one hour prior to each show.

Information flows at event By Amy Scalf

FORT WRIGHT — More than 200 Northern Kentucky students left school on Oct. 5 for a lesson about water. Sanitation District No. 1 hosted its annual Waterific event at the Public Service Park outside the utility’s main office. The students participated in hands-on science activities with several community organizations to learn about water and the local environment. In a lesson about watersheds, students learned that Northern Kentucky is in the Banklick Creek Watershed area. “Every drop of water that falls within that area makes its way into the stream and ends up in the same place at the end of the stream,” according to a park sign. “A healthy watershed provides habitats for plants and animals as well as high quality water for human use.” Mark Jacobs, a conservation technician for the Boone and Kenton Conservation Districts, said Kentucky has more accessible water than most other states. “We are water wealthy, but we don’t do a good job of protecting it. This is a problem, and we need to fix it,” he said. Using a park feature that shows how a watershed works, Jacobs had students put a plastic ball by a spout, and when the water started flowing, all the

streams, and the balls they carried, combined in the center, like they do in a river. “Everything gets flushed into the river,” said Jacobs. The park sign also explains, “Banklick Creek is part of the Licking River watershed. Its water flows into the Licking River, along with that of other area streams. Licking River water flows into the Ohio River, which in turn flows into the Mississippi. This means that if someone dumps oil down a storm drain that empties into the Banklick Creek, that oil will travel downstream to the Gulf of Mexico.” Schools represented included Blessed Sacrament School in Fort Mitchell, as well as Grandview Elementary, St. Philip Elementary and St. Thomas School from Campbell County. Other organizations featured were Behringer Crawford Museum, Boone County Solid Waste, Campbell County Cooperative Extension Services, Dinsmore Homestead, Foundation for Ohio River Education, Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road Council, Northern Kentucky Independent District Health Department, Northern Kentucky University’s Center for Environmental Education, Northern Kentucky Water District, Riverworks Discovery, Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky and Thomas More College’s Biology Field Station.

Camel senior gets national honor Junior scores 5 of 8 goals in regionals By James Weber

Lauren Macke from Campbell County High School has been named National Soccer Coaches Association of America High School Player of Week. Macke scored five of the team’s eight goals in the 10th Region Tournament. She scored back-to-back goals in the Camels’ 4-1 win in the first round of the tournament, then followed up with two goals in the first nine minutes of the semifinal game en route to the 3-0 win. In the regional championship game, she scored the lone goal for the Camels in a game that ended in regulation at 1-1. The junior midfielder tallied a penalty kick,

but the Camels lost 6-5. “I never thought to nominate before but looking at all the goals she scored in the region I thought I’d go ahead and nominate her,” Campbell County head coach Dave Morris said. “What’s nice about it is you get some recognition from coaches. I didn’t expect her to get chosen and the fact that they recognized her was beyond my imagination..” The Camels lost to rival Brossart in the regional final in penalty kicks. All three of the games between the teams went to a shootout, and the Mustangs won all three. In the regional final, Brossart tied the game with 93 seconds to go in regulation to add extra heartbreak. “Overall, I was thrilled with what we did,” Morris said. “Obviously we wanted to accomplish more and get to the state tournament. We talked about getting to

the state tournament and who knows what would happen. If you told me in July that we would be in the regional final, I would have taken it. We set a goal and we had a chance to achieve it. We had a lot of injuries and a couple of starters out for the eason, but other players stepped up.” Macke was a first-team all-region selection in the 10th this year. Senior Taylor Robinson was offensive player of the year. Angela Lauer and Natalie Visse were second-team all-region. Goalkeeper Bryanna Schroers was third-team all-region. Brossart’s Sam Cetrulo was defensive player of the year in the regional. Maria Greis and Rachel Hartig were first team. Megan Dierig, Abby Stadtmiller, Morgan Verst and goalkeeper Courtney Ledonne were second team. Cori Ziegler was third team.

touchdowns. Josh Cain threw for 1,496 yards and 11 scores. Mac Franzen had 37 catches for 670 yards and four TDs. Newport, which lost to Lloyd 30-19 Oct. 19 and had a bye Oct. 26, doesn’t have to travel very far, playing at Walton-Verona (8-2) Nov. 2. W-V is primarily a rushing a team, averaging more than 200 yards per game. Newport’s Daylin Garland rushed for 521 yards and nine touchdowns this year. Robert Sharp had 446 receiving yards and five scores. The Newport teams are on opposite sides of the regional bracket. NewCath would host either Holy Cross or Owen County with a win. Newport would travel to Lloyd or Carroll County. Bishop Brossart finished 1-9 with a 69-8 loss to Scott. The Mustangs did not qualify for the 2A playoffs. Jacob Elbert had 1,093 rushing yards in just five games before missing the rest of the season due to injury.



Once the team started to click, their big-game experience kicked in. Many players on this year’s squad played an integral part in shocking Covington Catholic in the regional championship game last season. Their state tournament experience was a factor come tournament time. “I think it was a huge asset,” said McDonald. “That experience was huge.” McDonald gave most of the credit for the team’s reversal of fortune to his seniors, who provided leadership when the season was at a crossroads. Led by goalkeeper Nathan Grosser and sweeper Graeham Heil, the seniors made certain that their final opportunity to play for NewCath would not go to waste. “Our seniors really took the reins and were huge in getting us turned around,” said McDonald. “I’m sad to see these seniors go. They are a great bunch of kids.” Despite Nathan’s graduation, there will be another Grosser in goal for NewCath next season. Sophomore Paul will take over for his older brother and will be-

come the third-straight Grosser brother to tend goal for the Thoroughbreds. He will have big shoes to fill, as Nathan proved to be the top goaltender in Northern Kentucky this season. Junior striker Matt Tolle, junior center-mid Ben Tiereny, and sophomore center-mid Patrick Louis will be counted on to lead the team next season. This year’s squad made the most of its underdog role and finished the season on a tear. The final win was a 2-1 victory over Ryle in the Ninth Region semifinals. “Nobody expected us to be where we were. Nobody expected us to beat Ryle,” said McDonald. “I’m happy with how far we got. It took us until the end of the season to find the right lineup to get us going.”

NEWPORT — When a team accustomed to winning starts to point fingers after struggling through much of the season, the best solution might just be to take a look in the mirror. That is exactly what Newport Central Catholic boys soccer coach Mike McDonald had his players do after the team slumped to a 2-7-5 start to the season. The defending 10th Region champions were not playing their best soccer, but, more importantly, they were down on themselves and each other. McDonald handed each player a mirror, and the season turned around quickly. “I handed them all mirrors and said ‘this is where change starts,’” said McDonald. “I think that was the turning point.” The motivational ploy worked. The Thoroughbreds won their next match, 9-0, and won five of their final eight matches. NewCath defeated Highlands for the 36th District championship, then won two Ninth Region tournament matches before falling in the regional championship match to Boone County. When the sledding was tough in the middle of the season, McDonald gave his team an ultimatum. “I told them that they could pack up and go home, or they could keep fighting and play their best soccer at the end of the season,” said the second-year head coach. “We ended up playing our best soccer late in the year.”

Health department shows positives of consolidation As they run their county’s governments, Judge-executives Steve Arlinghaus, Darrell Link, Gary Moore and Steve Pendery are constantly challenged to do more with less; to make government more efficient. So it’s not surprising that the issue of consolidation of services came up when the four judgeexecutives spoke at the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce’s Jane annual State of Northern Doe Kentucky event in SepCOMMUNITY tember. RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST While consolidation of 911 services, water rescue and emergency management have been more publicly debated, I’d like to commend Moore for pointing out one area in which Northern Kentucky has been well served by consolidation for more than 30 years — the public health department. The Northern Kentucky Health Department serves more than 390,000 residents in Boone, Campbell, Grant and Kenton counties. The first move toward consolidation came in 1972, when Campbell and Kenton counties came together with one health department. In 1981, with encouragement from state health officials, Boone County and Grant County joined the district. The advantages of being a regional agency are numerous. First, we can reduce administrative costs by having a combined system for things like human resources and accounting. As we well know, diseases don’t respect jurisdictional lines. By serving a larger area, our disease investigators can more

easily identify trends. They can easily connect dots, from say a child care center in Fort Thomas to an elementary school in Union. Our staff can become experts in a particular field. One health environmentalist, for example, can inspect all the tattoo studios in Northern Kentucky. One health educator can hone his or her skills around tobacco prevention and cessation, rather than focusing on several topics. When a program works in a smaller area, we can replicate it. A pilot project in Boone County around physical activity and nutrition in child care was successful, and is now being implemented elsewhere. Finally, as a combined agency, we have more clout. The combined Northern Kentucky counties are second in population only to Louisville Metro. With such a large population, officials at the state level are more likely to respond to our concerns. Further, resources are often allocated based on population—and our large numbers earn us a bigger piece of that proverbial pie. In every conversation about consolidation, however, we cannot forget that it still takes resources to effectively deliver services. Year after year of budget cuts could easily move the needle from efficiency to mediocrity. Promoting and protecting the health of Northern Kentucky residents and visitors is a large responsibility. We are fortunate to have a strong, regional health department, but even with the efficiency of regionalized services, the challenge is ensuring sufficient resources to keep Northern Kentucky healthy today and into the future. Dr. Lynne M. Saddler is the district director of health for the Northern Kentucky Health Department.

Save our forests from alien invasion No, this headline is not a Halloween hoax. It is a true, scary story about an experiment that has gone awry and now threatens to destroy the forests in the eastern U.S. Trisha The alien species, Schroeder reaching heights of 30 feet tall, is called COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST Amur Honeysuckle. It COLUMNIST was brought to the U.S. in 1897 from Asia by the USDA as part of an experiment on foreign seeds and plants. This alien plant stayed in an experimental stage for many years and was only slightly released to the public in the late 1930s by eight commercial growers. However, this insidious invader fooled the USDA with its beautiful, fragrant flowers and shiny red berries so that from 1960-1984 the USDA made this alien more powerful by sponsoring a program to improve culitvars of Amur Honeysuckle for erosion control, animal habitat and ornamentals. This innocent experiment meant to be for the good of our forests has now become so successful it threatens to annihilate them. If you are not familiar with this all too common plant, you only need to wait until the leaves have fallen to notice the big patches of green plant in our woods and along the expressway. Other than some evergreens mixed in, most likely the green plant you will be eying in mass quantities is Amur Honeysuckle. How has this alien plant become this strong, and why is it threatening our forests? Amur honeysuckle has many characteristics that make it capable of complete takeover of our forests. Not only does this plant grow in a wide range of soils, it can also grow in full sun or full shade. It is tolerant of all types of pollution and thrives on neglect, tolerating severe summer droughts and cold winter

temperatures. To make problems worse this almost invincible plant is one of the first plants to get its leaves in the spring and one of the last plants to lose its leaves. Therefore, sunlight never reaches the ground for other flowers, shrubs and tree seedlings to become established. It has completely dominated its competition. If we do not remove this alien, invasive honeysuckle from our forests, there will be no new generation of trees coming up after the larger ones fall down. Eventually when the larger trees have fallen and no new tree saplings are coming up, we will succumb to an entire “forest” of Amur honeysuckle. You only need to walk in the woods to see this already taking place. There is hope, however. What can you do? The Fort Thomas Forest Conservancy has been working for the past few years to remove Amur Honeysuckle from many of the forested areas in Fort Thomas. We can’t do it alone, so we’re calling for your help. The Fort Thomas Forest Conservancy has a group called “The Eradicators,” and they are searching for a few strong men and women to help join them and fight this spreading alien from complete takeover. If you have what it takes, The Eradicators will begin meeting 9 a.m.-noon every Saturday at the Fort Thomas Museum in Tower Park. The Eradicators will be removing honeysuckle from behind the museum and working their way toward the tennis courts. The Fort Thomas Forest Conservancy will provide most removal tools; however, if you have some tools (such as loppers or a chainsaw) to help in the fight – please, bring your weapons. Together we will fight and destroy this invader. Trisha Schroeder serves on the board of directors for the The Fort Thomas Forest Conservancy.

The old St. Francis of Assisi Cemetery sits on a hill overlooking the Ohio River. AMANDA JOERING/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

Group breathes new life into neglected cemetery

St. Francis Cemetery is uncovered By Amanda Joering

DAYTON — Those hoping to visit loved ones and ancestors buried in the old St. Francis of Assisi Cemetery in Dayton have a bit of hike ahead of them. With no road leading to dilapidated cemetery, which hasn’t been in use since the mid-1950s, visitors must traverse woods and railroad tracks just to get to the Dayton hillside overlooking the Ohio River. It’s a hike that several community members have been making for the past month to work to uncover the all-but forgotten cemetery, which dates back to the mid-1800s and was formerly named the Jamestown Cemetery before the City of Dayton was founded. Recently, a discussion about the history of the area led Cold Spring resident Johannah Moran and Southgate resident Jim Vice, who both grew up in Dayton, to form the group. “I just want people to know the incredible history of this cemetery and to restore its dignity and honor to the people buried there,” Moran said. The cemetery, currently owned by the Diocese of Covington, has been mostly covered with overgrown grass and brush for decades. For the past few weeks, with the permission of the diocese, the group has been working to remove the brush, uncover hidden and broken headstones and research those buried in the old cemetery. Moran said just in that short amount of time, the group has uncovered an interesting unknown history of the cemetery, finding graves of Civil War, SpanishAmerican War and World War II

One of the last tall headstones left standing in the cemetery, from the mid-1800s, features writing in German. AMANDA JOERING/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

veterans as well as people, including infants and children, who passed away from epidemics that plagued the area at the turn of the

century, With a good deal of the cemetery, which extends up the hillside to Fort Thomas, still hidden

under brush, the work and discoveries are just beginning, Moran said. “We find new things every time we go up there,” Moran said. “It’s like a new adventure every day and every time we go up there, we can’t wait to go back and do more.” While records show that there are about 300 people buried in the cemetery, Vice said that doesn’t include the burials that occurred before St. Francis bought the cemetery and group members believe there are hundreds more. Since the road that led from Route 8 to the cemetery has been closed since approximately the 1960s, very few people have come to the cemetery, except for groups of kids and teenagers, who have made the cemetery a party spot throughout the years, Vice said.

While time and weather have had impact on the headstones, vandalism has also played a big part in the cemetery’s current condition. Vice said these acts of vandalism include graffiti on the headstones, and even removing the headstones and placing them on the railroad tracks to be crushed. “We’ve tried to find as many pieces of the tombstones as we can,” Vice said. “It’s sad that anyone would do that.” Vice said that he hopes through the group’s work, they can honor those buried there, inform families about where their relatives are buried, and learn and share more about the history of Dayton. To enlist the help of other communities members and reach out to families who have relatives buried at the cemetery, the group has created a Facebook group called St. Francis Cemetery Dayton Kentucky, which currently has around 200 members. Through the site, people can see pictures and videos of the cemetery and the work the group is doing, as well as share stories and information about the cemetery and volunteer to help with the project. Vice said through that use of social media, the group has been able to accomplish more and get further with the project. “We’ve been able to get so many more people involved, including older people who can’t make it out to the cemetery and people who don’t live around here,” Vice said. The group plans to continue working throughout the fall and hopes to have a bigger work group put together by the spring. Moran said she can imagine, by looking around the cemetery, even in its current condition, what it used to be like. “I’m sure this was a beautiful place at one time, and I think it can be again,” Moran said.

Start the holidays by making brandied fruit

Brandied fruit starter

This is one of those recipes that creates memories and starts traditions. You need to start this within about a month before using or giving as a gift from the kitchen. This is easy and beautiful. Now if the cans of fruit are a bit less, or more, than what’s listed below, that’s OK. And packed in juice or syrup is OK, too. I used apricot brandy but plain or peach is OK. 16 oz. can diced peaches, drained (or sliced peaches diced) 16 oz. can apricot halves, drained and cut in fourths 20 oz. can pineapple tidbits, drained 10 oz. jar maraschino cherry halves, drained 11⁄4 cups sugar 11⁄2 cups brandy

Combine everything together. Pour into glass jar or glass bowl, cover and let sit at room temperature at least three weeks before serving, stirring twice a week. Serve over ice cream or cake. Reserve at least 1 cup starter at all times. To replenish starter: To your reserved cup of fruit, add 1 cup sugar and one of the first four ingredients every one to three weeks, alternating fruit each time. I’ll taste the mixture and if it seems like it needs more brandy, I’ll add a bit. Cover and let stand at room temperature at least three days before serving each time starter is replenished.

ON THE AIR At 9:15 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13, I’ll be talking with Tracey Johnson and Frank Marzullo on Fox 19’s Morning Xtra show about essentials needed for the holiday kitchen, including pantry staples, baking equipment, etc.

Rita’s brandied fruit makes a great holiday gift from the kitchen. THANKS TO RITA Brandied fruit starter contains pantry staple canned fruits. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

8 oz. can refrigerated crescent rolls 1 pound pork sausage, cooked and drained (can do ahead) 2 cups shredded favorite cheese: I like cheddar and mozzarella 5 large eggs, lightly beaten 1 ⁄2 cup milk 3 ⁄4 teaspoon dried oregano Bit of salt and several grindings pepper (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll crescent rolls, separating into eight triangles. Place with points toward center on sprayed 12-inch pizza pan. Press perforations together to form crust. Bake 8 minutes on lowest rack. Remove and reduce temperature to 350 degrees. Spoon sausage over dough and sprinkle with cheeses. Combine eggs, milk and seasonings. Carefully pour over sausage mixture starting in the middle. Bake 30-35 minutes or until crust is golden. Serves 6-8.

Smoky black beans For Lindsey B., who wanted to make a homemade version for filling burritos.

1 small onion Chipotle chilies canned in adobo sauce 2 pounds canned black

beans, rinsed and drained Olive oil 1 cup water Up to 3⁄4 cup fresh orange juice

Mince onion. Cook over low heat in a bit of olive oil until softened. Add 1 tablespoon chipotle chilies (I take the whole can, process the mixture in a food processor and then it’s easy to measure) or less if you want. Cook for a couple of minutes, then add beans, 1 cup water and juice. Simmer and mash mixture a few times until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes. Season with salt.

percent. You can’t be sure how much salt the butter you’re using will add to a recipe. I like using unsalted butter because it allows me to control the amount of salt in a dish.

Unsalted butter is more fresh than salted, since salt act as a preservative. Store extra unsalted butter in the freezer.

Dig tender bulbs before soil freezes

Question: Do I need to dig my cannas, gladiolus or any other bulbs now and bring them inside for the winter? Answer: Last winter was extremely mild, so cannas and some other tender plants survived outside just fine. But if we have a cold winter this year, most of the tender bulbs, corms, rhizomes and tubers are not cold-hardy enough to survive. Therefore, it is safest to dig up these plants in the fall and bring them inside for winter. Flowers such as cannas, gladiolus, caladiums, dahlias,

and stored dry as you would onions. To do this, dig the corms and remove excess soil and foliage. Spread corms out in a dry area that has plenty of air circulation and allow them to cure. After curing, remove any dried foliage or excess stems. Dusting with a fungicide would be helpful at this time. Store bulbs in any container (potato sack, paper bag with holes punched in it) where there is good air circulation and temperatures remain above freezing. Other tender “bulbs,” such as dahlias, will not

Turn the clump of roots over, and allow to dry for a few hours. Store roots in a cool, moderately dry area where the temperature will not go over 50 degrees F.

This covering will reduce desiccation. Boxes or paper bags are possible containers. Keep in a room above freezing. Make periodic inspections throughout the winter to make sure that none of the bulbs have begun to rot. Discard any bulbs that show signs of rotting. After the tops of cannas have been killed by

We live in an area which is known for very cold winters. Our facility is nearly 7000 square feet in area. When we began to utilize the first unit we were amazed to see how even the heat was for the entire living room area. We ordered a second and a third unit which now warms the entire home. Much to our surprise we are saving over $250 a month and had the lowest expense for heating we have ever experienced here. I would heartily recommend your products to anybody who is interested in really nice, even heat in their home and also interested in saving on their utility expenses. Dennis Crystal, Troy, MT (Retired Airline Pilot)

Enclosed you will find printouts of our electric bill and gas/heating/cooking bills for 2007 - 2008. Our gas company, AmeriGas, stated that more money was saved than would show up because of the cost going up. We would turn the gas on early in the morning and turn it down to 60 degrees; We would use the EdenPURE ® heaters from then on and they provided such warmth and cozy heat. Many of our friends have informed me recently that they are going to purchase these heaters for their homes this winter. Gloria D. Smith, Boydton, VA (Retired Elementary Principal)

EdenPURE reopens Ohio factory creates 250 new jobs ®

New models shipped direct from warehouse at 49% savings Richard Karn, North Canton, Ohio I was fortunate enough to attend the grand opening of the new EdenPURE ® factory in North Canton, Ohio. The new plant brought hundreds of new jobs back to Ohio and reversed the common practice of sending Midwest manufacturing jobs to China. Now, EdenPURE® continues to ramp up production for the coming Winter with exciting new models and hundreds of new employees as this Made in America success story continues to grow. American Labor, American Quality With over 3 million portable heaters sold EdenPURE® is the best selling portable infrared heating system in North America. However, like any classic, EdenPURE® has dozens of would-be competitors who create Asian copies at low prices using cheap, foreign labor. Don’t be fooled by these imitations. Look for the EdenPURE® logo and the Made in North Canton, Ohio stamp. Save like millions of others on your heating bills and say “NO” to cheap foreign imitators. I spoke with Neil Tyburk the Chief Designer and President of EdenPURE ®’s North Canton plant who is very direct in his beliefs. “We have better designs, better materials and a better work force. We can kick their butts in production and quality. The only advantage they have is cheap labor.” Save up to 49% on 2013 EdenPURE®s Now readers can save up to 49% ($229 the largest savings ever on new EdenPURE ®s). EdenPURE ® is not just the best-selling portable heating system in North America. As an EdenPURE® owner I rank EdenPURE ® #1 for quality, safety and efficiency. And now is the perfect time to save like never before on our expanded 2013 EdenPURE® line made in our brand new North Canton, Ohio facility. With two models EdenPURE ® can meet all of your heating requirements 365 days a year. We receive thousands of letters from satisfied customers who share their heating testimonials many of which you can view at our website This Summer we even followed up with EdenPURE® customers from 5 years ago like Gloria Smith (see her original testimony above) who are still just as enthusiastic and in some instances saved thousands of dollars versus costly propane. Gloria Smith Interview May 20, 2012 “My name is Gloria Smith and I am a retired principal from Boydton, Virginia. I’ve been using EdenPURE® Heaters for 5 years. I think I saved at least $15,000 over a period of 5 years. And that’s proven with my bank statements because it’s documented. And I feel really great about using the EdenPURE® Heaters.” “Many people have called me from all over the country when they have seen the infomercials on TV. I’ve en-

Never be cold again

How it works:


Heats floor to the same temperature as ceiling. 1. Electricity ignites powerful SYLVANIA infrared lamp.



As Al Borland on Home Improvement I was the man with all the answers. However, as Richard Karn I still look for money saving and efficient heating in my home. I have an EdenPURE ® Infrared Portable Heater in my California home and like millions of others found it to be a supersafe, reliable source of portable heat all year long. joyed talking to them and I want everybody to save money in these hard economic times. I believe in paying it forward, so when you experience something good, you want to share it.” Stay Comfortable 365 Days a Year “Never be cold again” is the EdenPURE ® promise. EdenPURE® provides you insurance against the cold all year long. Stay comfortable on those unseasonably chilly evenings no matter the season. I live in California but believe me it gets cold at night. Keep your expensive furnace turned down until it’s absolutely necessary. And if we are fortunate enough to experience a mild winter as many of us did in the Midwest last year, you keep your furnace off all season and save even bigger. New, More Efficient Models The engineers at EdenPURE® listened to their millions of customers and somehow managed to improve the #1 portable heater in North America. Through old fashioned American ingenuity the new EdenPURE® line is more efficient to save you even more money. The EdenPURE® Personal Heater now heats a larger area, an increase from 350 square feet to 500 square feet. That’s a 30% increase in efficiency! And EdenPURE® is proud to introduce the 2013 Model 750. The new Model 750 is perfect for larger areas and heats up to 750 square feet. But the best thing about the Model 750 is the price. We priced the Model 750 at only $50 above the Personal Heater. This means you receive a 33% increase in performance for only $50. That’s American engineering at its best! We all know heating costs are expected to remain at record levels. The cost of

heating our homes and apartments will continue to be a significant burden on the family budget. The EdenPURE® can cut your heating bills and pay for itself in a matter of weeks, and then start putting a great deal of extra money in your pocket after that. Super Safe Infrared Heat Now remember, a major cause of residential fires in the United States is carelessness and faulty portable heaters. The choice of fire and safety professional, Captain Mike Hornby, the EdenPURE® has no exposed heating elements that can cause a fire. And a redundant home protection system that simply shuts the EdenPURE® down if it senses danger. That’s why grandparents and parents love the EdenPURE®. The outside of the EdenPURE® only gets warm to the touch so that it will not burn children or pets. And your pet may be just like my dog who has reserved a favorite spot near the EdenPURE ® . You see the EdenPURE ® uses infrared heat. And just as pets enjoy basking in a beam of sunlight they try to stay close to EdenPURE ® ’s “bonewarming” infrared heat. The Origin of EdenPURE® a Missouri Rancher’s Discovery American’s love to tinker. We are a nation of inventors from Benjamin Franklin to Thomas Edison. A Missouri horse breeder named John Jones was no exception. Jones lived in a large drafty old farmhouse with his family of five. They stayed warm on cold Missouri nights with an old coal furnace and plenty of blankets. Now Jones was always collecting scrap to use in his latest inventions and somewhere along the line he had picked up a large sheet of cured copper.

2. The quartz infrared lamp gently warms the patented copper heating chambers.

SYLVANIA is a registered trademark of OSRAM SYLVANIA Inc. used under license. Richard Karn is a paid spokesperson for EdenPURE®.

Jones stored the large copper sheet in his basement near the coal furnace he labored to fill every chilly morning. Jones noticed something peculiar. The coal furnace warmed the copper sheet and as the furnace cooled down the copper sheet stayed warm. In fact, the copper sheet stayed warm for many hours and heated much of the large basement. As Jones continued to develop a portable infrared heater he knew the copper was the secret ingredient that would make his heater different from all the rest. His copper heating chambers combined with the far infrared bulbs provided an efficient wave of “soft” heat over large areas. The breakthrough EdenPURE® infrared heating chamber was born. The Health Secret is in the Copper EdenPURE ® ’s engineers have taken Jones’ original concept through revolutionary changes. EdenFLOW™ technology uses copper heating chambers to take the energy provided by our special SYLVANIA infrared bulbs and distribute our famous soft heat evenly throughout the room. Now our copper isn’t ordinary. It’s 99.9% pure antimicrobial copper from an over 150 year old American owned company in Pennsylvania. Researchers have discovered copper as an antimicrobial is far more effective than stainless steel or even silver. That’s why our special antimicrobial copper is marked Cu+ and used in hospitals on touch surfaces. So your EdenPURE ® heater is continuously pushing soft, healthy, infrared heat throughout your room.

Many middle-aged adults are finding themselves caring and supporting two generations - their children and their aging parents. While caregiving can be very rewarding, it often can bring additional emotional, physical and financial stresses for caregivers as they try to balance a career, parenting and elder care. Consider the following


Bath Magic 771-8827

emotional breaks from caregiving, such as going for a walk or reading a book. Ask for help, including professional support. A neighbor or friend might be willing to sit with your family member while you run errands or go to a movie. Try to not turn down the support others offer. Many people really are willing to help. Look into resources available in the community including adult day care, senior centers, and other senior services. Reducing financial stress requires honesty between all parties involved in the caregiving process . You should analyze your financial situation and be honest with your parents about how much financial support you can provide to them now and in the future. Your parents need to be honest with you about their monthly expenses. Reviewing your parents’ expenses may help them find ways to cut costs, such as buying generic products, seeking government assistance or moving in together to share monthly expenses. You should be honest with your children about the effects of caring for your aging parents and make sure they know their needs come first.
