BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Cold Spring plans to acquire lake Chris Mayhew cmayhew@communitypress.com

COLD SPRING – Cracker Barrel has offered to give up a private lake next to where a new restaurant is planned off U.S. 27. Cold Spring City Council authorized Mayor Angelo Penque Oct. 21 to negotiate with Cracker Barrel to take ownership of the lake behind the closed Guys’ n’ Dolls night club at 4210 U.S. 27. Plans for a new Crack-

er Barrel Old Country Store call for demolishing the former 19th-century livery barn. Cracker Barrel does not want the lake, Penque said. “They offered me a lake to turn it into a park,” he said. The private lake already has an unimproved walking trail. The former Cold Spring fishing derby, organized by Central Campbell Fire District firefighters, was held at the lake See LAKE, Page 2A

CAMPBELL COUNTY TAKES ON HEROIN EPIDEMIC IN JAIL Chris Mayhew cmayhew@communitypress.com

JAIL NEEDS MORE GUARDS

NEWPORT – Campbell County’s newly expanded jail has room to treat inmates and put a “dent” in Northern Kentucky’s heroin epidemic. “Over time we should help make a dent in the heroin addicted population in Northern Kentucky,” Campbell County Judge-executive Steve Pendery said. Kenton County’s jail has had an existing substance program since July 2015 and Boone County is studying starting a program. Campbell County’s completed $7.53 million jail addition dedicates up to 35 beds to a new heroin treatment program which will initially be focused on women. The Campbell County Detention Center at 601 Central

» Campbell County Jailer Jim Daley said he hopes to have inmates in the jail addition before the end of this month. » The jail is conducting interviews now to hire more needed deputy jailers, Daley said. “We need about 20 more guys, men and women, than we have right now,” Daley said.

A Civil War Christmas will be held noon to 5 p.m. Dec. 11, at the James A. Ramage Civil War Museum in Fort Wright.

FORT WRIGHT – The Christmas of yesteryear will come alive at the James A. Ramage Museum on Dec. 11. This year marks the 11th year for the museum’s Civil War Christmas. The museum will be decorated with natural materials that would have been used during the 19th century. There will be an exhibit of vintage Christmas ornaments and quilts. The free event will also include children’s activities. There will be ornament making, as well. “As Christmas becomes more commercialized, this is a great way for

said. Treating people for substance abuse makes sense, Elberfeld said. “We’re already incurring all those costs, so why not treat them while they are here,” Elberfeld said. Boone County Judgeexecutive Gary Moore toured Campbell County’s new jail Nov. 29 during an invitation-only tour. “We’re in the early stages of discussing how we might move in the same direction,” Moore said. Boone County’s jail needs a large open room to provide treatment counseling and education, he said. Campbell County’s new jail addition features a multipurpose room where inmates in drug treatment will be counseled. “I would like to commend Judge Pendery and the Campbell County Fiscal Court for taking the initiative,” Moore said of Campbell County’s new treatment program. Touring Kenton County’s jail and other programs across Kentucky was a starting point for Campbell County.

“Kenton County is very impressive and is recognized as a national model,” Campbell County Commissioner Tom Lampe said. Kenton County has treated about 250 people for substance abuse since July 1, 2015, said Kenton County Jailer Terry Carl. Between 30 and 60 people are in Kenton County’s jail program at any one time, Carl said. Jails across Kentucky are adding substance abuse treatment programs, said Rodney Ballard, commissioner of Kentucky Department of Corrections. Adjusting to an influx of inmates addicted to drugs requires a change in thinking, he said. “We’re never going to be able to warehouse our way out of the problem,” Ballard said. Hired in May, Kristie Blanchet is Campbell County’s new jail chemical dependency program manager. Campbell County has spent less than $50,000 for Blanchet’s salary and treatment program education materials, Elberfeld said. Blanchet is the only counselor. Women from Campbell County with previous or current drug charges and no violent offenses are what Blan-

chet said she is looking for first. Prosecuting and defense attorneys are consulted to see if an inmate might be a good candidate for treatment, Blanchet said. Treatment will last for six months inside jail and then for two more years after being released. Newport-based Brighton Center will help with case management 30 days before an inmate is released. Brighton Center will help provide food, clothing, shelter and treatment and a chance to brush up on job skills and resumes, Blanchet said. Program participants will be visited and have access to a nurse from Northern Kentucky Independent District Health Department and mental health counselors. Starting a treatment program is the end of a long-term project people have been asking for since 2013, Campbell County Commissioner Brian Painter said. Getting people off drugs and into jobs is the long-term goal, Painter said. “We’re trying to get them through here, educated, back on the street with help, with opiate addiction in the rear view mirror,” he said.

proving walking trails so people may walk around the lake. Cracker Barrel’s plans for creating a new restaurant did not include any proposal for the lake, Cindy Minter, director of planning and

zoning for Campbell County, said during a Nov. 16 special city Planning and Zoning Commission meeting. Plans for what to do with the lake property will have to be dealt with later, Penque said.

Remke Markets Makes Holiday Entertaining Easy Pat Iasillo We all love to entertain and spend time with friends and family. However, there is a stress factor which actually has a name called hospitality-induced anxiety. Even though we all want to have fun and enjoy time with our guests, frankly, we can easily worry ourselves out of having a good time. There have been surveys taken which have indicated that throwing a party is as stressful as going on a job interview. Of course the stress created around the event is totally self-induced and is the result of the fear we all have about being judged. We worry about our house, our furniture, the

they understand, so relax. Now, of course, one of the biggest sources of stress and work is the food we serve our guests. You don’t want to spend time at your party working in the kitchen so whatever you do, plan on having food that is prepared ahead of time. You want a great presentation and to have everything taste fresh, and you want time-tested recipes you can count on that your guests will all enjoy. Planning and preparing this can create a lot of pressure and anxiety. During the holidays, the last things we need are more labor, planning, and execution. That is where Remke Markets comes in! We have been at this a long time, and have a lot of experience to help you plan everything from appetizers, fruit and meat trays, to soups, entrées and desserts. Yes, we

cleanliness of our home, the food, etc. The real reason to entertain is to escape from everyday stress and to have fun with our friends and family. So how do you entertain and still enjoy the entire experience at the same time? Keeping it simple and not trying to make everything perfect are two ultimate ways to make your event as stressfree as possible. Get your entertainment space clean and close the doors to the spaces where you don’t have time to give attention. Try to remember people are coming to your home to see you and reconnect, they are not there to criticize. Your guests have all been in your shoes and

can even cater your event! All you need to do is to call your local Remke’s deli departments and one of our experienced planners will help you through the entire process. If you happen to be a lucky one and don’t have to host, but rather you are going to someone else’s party, we have the perfect, special one-of-a-kind gift. Remke Markets has a selection of Hometown Favorites gift baskets, full of locally produced and locally cherished products. These will be a favorite of all who receive them. Keep us in mind during this time of the year. We are here to help, and for goodness’ sake, have Happy Holidays!

St. Joseph students reach across the ocean As a service project to act in accord with the Catholic Church’s Year of Mercy, the students in Krista Schoulties’ and Chelsea Williams’ third-grade classes at St. Joseph, Cold Spring decided to help students and their families in a different school. The St. Julie Mission in Buseesa, Uganda, established by the Sisters of Notre Dame, is a school students of St. Joseph are familiar with because of their long-term affiliation with the Sisters of Notre Dame. Besides a preschool, elementary and an all-girls secondary school, they have established the St. Julie Farm which provides employment for local people and food for the children. The SND are now hoping to purchase water tanks for the mission and surrounding communities. The water tanks would help improve the quality of life for the people whom the SND serve. In order to help the Sisters of Notre Dame, the third-grade

students collected shoes, purses and backpacks (without wheels). These donated items were taken to a company that will then donate money for the purchase of the much-needed water tanks. The monetary donation will be based on the amount of items collected from a combination of different collection sites. The donated shoes, purses and backpacks will be sent to artisans and craftspeople in Uganda who will “up-cycle” them and earn an income by selling the “new” items they make. The students promoted their collection effort by creating posters and a video to educate the entire student body about the need for safe water reserves for the people of Buseesa. This project served as a benefit not only for the Sisters of Notre Dame and the St. Julie Mission, it also served to benefit the students of St. Joseph as they practice helping others in this Year of Mercy.

Heroin task force to give community update The Northern Kentucky Heroin Impact Response Task Force (HIRT) invites the public to a community update and conversation about the response to the heroin epidemic in Northern Kentucky. HIRT will share its latest accomplishments and outline next steps in coordinating a comprehensive response to combat heroin. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the program begins at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 12, at the St. Elizabeth Training and Education Center, 3861 Olympic Blvd., Erlanger. The program will focus on the topic areas outlined in the task force’s fouryear plan, released in 2013: » Reducing the supply of heroin; preventing drug use among youth; » increasing treatment capacity and resources for long-term recovery; » advocating for policy change; and reducing heroin’s impact on the overall health and economic well-being of the region. Speakers will include representatives from law enforcement, treatment providers, drug prevention specialists, hospitals and public health agencies.

Members of the audience will have a chance to ask questions and interact with members of HIRT to learn where Northern Kentucky is with regards to the heroin response efforts and what initiatives are coming up for 2017. “This is an opportunity for residents of Northern Kentucky to come together and be engaged in response efforts,” said James Thaxton, task force coordinator. “Since heroin use affects all of us in the community, all of us can take action to help address this no matter who we are.” Heroin Impact Response Task Force was created in 2012 by an interagency group of concerned consumers, professionals and public officials in response to a rising number of heroin overdoses. Its mission is to ensure that the people of Northern Kentucky will have access to life-saving and life-restoring resources for addiction that will reduce its impact in our communities. More than 30 individuals and organizations participate in HIRT currently, under the leadership of a coordinating council. For more information on HIRT and to view the regional heroin response plan, visit http://www.drugfreenky.org.

Whip up Christmas ornaments in the kitchen

Cinnamon ornaments I bought a bag of cinnamon at Jungle Jim’s and it cost a lot less than buying individual containers. Buy the cheapest cinnamon for this recipe. These are not edible and keep just about forever stored in a box between layers of waxed paper or foil. So fun to make with the little ones.

The past couple of weeks brought requests for cinnamon ornaments. I’m not surprised these vintage ornaments are enjoying a comeback. Not only are they easy to make, they make your house smell amazing as they bake. The best part is they last for years and become precious heirlooms, as well. The other recipe for today is a yummy spread made with Old English Rita jar cheeses. Heikenfeld This spread brings back RITA’S KITCHEN memories of my mother-in-law, Clara, who always kept jars of Old English brand cheese spread in her pantry. Whenever anyone stopped by, Clara would fill celery sticks with the cheese, and serve those alongside a bowl of canned black olives. Simple and so tasty. Of course, being the frugal person she was, Clara would save the glass jars the cheese came in and use them as juice glasses. Now the recipe for the blue and cheddar cheese spread came from a young woman who was helping me prep a class on holiday appetizers. “It’s a staple at our house during the holidays,” she said. Makes a nice gift from the kitchen, packaged with a holiday spreader and packed into a decorative crock. Cheryl, a Loveland reader, wanted me to publish it. She lost the recipe during a kitchen remodel. “It’s not Christmas without a crock of this on the appetizer table,” she told me.

3/4 cup applesauce 1-1/2 cups cinnamon 1 tablespoon craft glue, like Elmer’s Glitter (optional) Drinking straw

Preheat oven to 275. Mix applesauce, cinnamon and glue together and sprinkle in some glitter if you want. Squeeze with your hands to make a ball. It should roll out easily with a piece of plastic wrap on top so the dough doesn’t stick to the rolling pin. If it’s too sticky, add a bit more cinnamon. If too dry, add a bit more applesauce. Roll the dough out to about 1/4” thickness. Cut out with cookie cutters. Or use holiday stamps to stamp an impression into dough. Poke a hole with the straw. Bake on foil or parchment for 10-20 minutes to dry. Or leave them overnight to air dry. Decorate with sparkly glue, puffy paint, or whatever. Mark the date on the back. Tie with ribbons to hang. For a step-bystep tutorial with photos, check out my about eating.com site.

Old English Roka blue and cheddar spread/dip Mix together well: 8 oz. cream cheese, softened 1 jar Old English pasteurized cheese spread 1 jar Old English Roka blue cheese spread

THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Cinnamon ornaments are created using cinnamon, applesauce and glue.

Dash or two garlic powder and cayenne pepper, ground (optional but good)

More than 500 bales of hay raised for Gatlinburg horses HEBRON – News of the wildfires in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, had many Northern Kentucky residents asking “What can I do?” When Jessica Bloom heard about the fires, she thought about the horses. A few years ago her family’s barn in Hebron burned down. The family lost horses, saddles, harnesses and food supplies. “When we saw all the devastation in Gatlinburg we knew we should do something. It seemed like everyone pulled together for us after our barn fire. So we decided we should help the people there get back up on their feet,” Bloom said. Right now Bloom and her friend Amy Paulus are gather-

ing supplies and working with local sanctuaries in Gatlinburg. Their Facebook page is flooded with posts from across the region, some offering barn space for those who have animals and others asking where to drop off supplies. “It has been incredible to see people come together for the people in Gatlinburg. The human race is amazing sometimes. We’ve had amazing support and a lot of people have really stepped up,” Bloom said. Bloom’s stepdad, Bob Mueller, said the support has been exciting. “This tragedy is near and dear to us and Jessica feels that calling to help others out,” Mueller said.

Mueller said the attention on Facebook and from companies like Aurora Farm and Garden in Indiana has his stepdaughter working around the clock to coordinate efforts. As of Dec. 3, Bloom said they had more than 500 bales of hay, and are trying to find a space to store it before bringing the supplies down to Gatlinburg. They are also collecting sponges, halters and towels. Bloom and Paulus took down initial supplies on Dec. 3 and have another trip planned later this month, once things are more organized. “People are going above and beyond to help provide for the animals and their owners,” Bloom said.

Give the gift of hope this holiday season One in six people in the Tristate are hungry, and more than 94,000 of them are children. Despite common misconceptions, the staggering numbers of our neighbors struggling with food insecurity are not isolated to one community. Hunger exists in neighborhoods across Greater Cincinnati, including the suburbs of Hamilton County to the rural areas of Kenton and Dearborn counties. People we see where we live and work are silently struggling – from a local store cashier, to a grandmother down the street, to a family in the school carpool line. With a strong heritage of community support in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, LaRosa’s Family Pizzeria is dedicated to helping our neighbors in need again this holiday season by not only providing food, but also advocating independence and self-sustenance, with the help of organizations like the Freestore Foodbank. To help our neighbors in need achieve independence and long-term success, we must first address their most basic necessities, such as food, clothing and utilities. A person with hunger pangs cannot focus and feel confident at a job interview. A mother sleeping with her child on a cold

apartment floor without utilities cannot concentrate on job training. A family living paycheck to Michael T. paycheck LaRosa cannot recovCOMMUNITY PRESS er from a GUEST COLUMNIST financial crisis created by an unexpected illness, while they’re forced to decide between paying the rent or buying coats for their children who are shivering at the bus stop. They are in survival mode, struggling to obtain basic necessities for the day ahead, worrying where the next meal will come from and how they will keep their child warm tonight. For these families struggling to make it day by day, social service agencies like the Freestore Foodbank are beacons of hope. They work to alleviate the immediate need for basic necessities by providing food, clothing and utilities assistance to struggling families in communities across Greater Cincinnati. Once these immediate needs are met, volunteers and handson community advocates work with our struggling neighbors to help them achieve independence and self-sustenance.

Through job-training programs like Cincinnati Cooks, to money management classes, or transportation, they work tirelessly to not only meet immediate needs, but to foster hope and independence for a brighter future. This holiday season, LaRosa’s is proud to once again support the Freestore Foodbank of Cincinnati to fight hunger in our community and help teach independence and self-sustenance to our struggling neighbors. The Freestore Foodbank is one of Ohio’s largest foodbanks, distributing more than 23 million meals annually in 20 different counties throughout Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. Each of our restaurants is now selling Buddy Cards (our 2 for 1 pizza discount card) for the benefit of the Freestore Foodbank. We will donate $5 from the sale of every $10 Buddy Card directly to the Freestore Foodbank. Our contribution will help support the Freestore Foodbank’s efforts to create stability and self-reliance by providing emergency food assistance as well as connections to other essential resources. We hope you’ll join us in our efforts to surpass our 2015 contribution of $45,000 to the Freestore Foodbank. Michael T. LaRosa is chief executive officer, LaRosa’s Inc.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question: Would you feel safe riding in, or on the same road with, a “driverless” car? Would you consider buying one? Why or why not?

“No, not yet. But I think eventually yes.” Mark Jones

“LOL, may be safer some days! But for real probably not yet ... but I’m sure in time that is what most will be.” Shannon Kessel

I, for one, welcome our new robot cars. They will be much safer than human drivers and open up opportunities for disabled and elderly people to have better transportation. Eric Peck, Fort Thomas

“Not yet.”

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION What toy from your childhood do you wish they would bring back, or do you still have? Why? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via email. Send your answers to ndaly@communitypress.com with Ch@troom in the subject line.

“How much more dangerous can ‘driverless’ be than the brainless, careless idiots on their phones?” Donnette Ryan Plunkett

“I’m not even comfortable in a car with another person at the wheel, so no, I would not feel safe. I would have no feeling of control.” Bobbi Layne Kayser

Elizabeth Mason-Hill

“As of now there aren’t many if any ‘driverless’ cars around, they have to have someone behind the wheel for emergencies so I would feel OK with it. But in the future when there are many, I would feel safe if I was in one too because they will communicate with each other.”

“This is already how Google provides its street views for Google maps. The Google cars have only been in wrecks due to mistakes made by people driving their own cars. This isn’t some crazy future technology – it’s already here and has shown that self-driving cars are safer than those driven by people.” Charli Lootens

We’ve utilized a completely NEW TREATMENT that may take away most, if not all, of your pain. It’s safe and highly effective for most people... even diabetics.

Campbell County wrestling, seventh at state last year, returns four state qualifiers. The Camels are 10th in duals and eighth in the team rankings, just ahead of ninthranked Simon Kenton. Defending state champion Union County is top-ranked on both preseason lists. “I have a lot of respect for coach Mike Bankemper and Campbell County. It’s a topnotch, classy program. They are the benchmark. We’re chasing them,” Walton-Verona coach John Roth said. “Coach (Steve) Kaiser at Simon Kenton and coach (Don) Graven at Scott have done a tremendous job and they’re going to be tough. You can never count out Ryle, but I tell my kids that you don’t have to come from a big school to win.” “They are legit. It should be a pretty close competition with them (and Simon Kenton),”

Kramer’s TMC legacy continues with scholarships Adam Turer prepsports@enquirer.com

Senior Day at Thomas More College was bittersweet for the Kramer family. Thanks to the support and generosity of friends, family, and total strangers, the day turned out to be much more sweet than bitter. Mitchell Kramer would have walked out with his family for Senior Day on Oct. 29, the final regular season home game for the Saints football team. He died just before the start of his junior season in August 2015. To honor his memory and preserve his legacy, the Kramer family and Thomas More officially announced the establishment of the Mitchell Kramer Scholarship Fund. The Kramers presented Thomas More College with a $25,000 check; $10,000 of it was donated by BB&T, while the rest was raised by generous donors. “The last 16 months have been so incredibly hard,” said Mitchell’s mother, Kathy Kramer. “We are so happy that we got to get this scholarship in place and his legacy will go on forever.” The family held a fundraiser for the scholarship in July, which it expects to become an annual tradition. Mike Tussey, the Saints football broadcaster, wrote a book chronicling the team’s 2015 season in the wake of Mitch’s death. A portion of the proceeds from his book, “Touchdown Saints” goes to the scholarship fund. The goal is to make this an ongoing scholarship that will still be in place long after Mitch’s former teammates have graduated. The football team has made sure that incoming teammates know about Mitch’s legacy, but the scholarship will ensure that his memory continues to live on long after those who knew him have graduated and moved on. “This will allow us to be able to continue the scholarships and provide opportunity to students pursuing their college dreams,” said Kathy. “Our family still misses Mitch terribly and it’s hard to go through each day without his smiling face and great laugh, but the fact that we are able to award scholarships

in his name at TMC makes me know that his legacy will go on. I don’t want anyone to forget him.

He really was a great, humble kid and worked hard to get what he wanted. The world would be

a lot better place if we could all be like Mitch with his dedication to always work so hard.” The $10,000 donation from BB&T was a complete surprise to the Kramer family. “BB&T’s gesture was amazing and we never expected it. It just goes to show the influence Mitch had on so many people’s lives and how highly people thought of him,” said his sister, Paige Kramer. “Through losing him, we have met so many people and heard stories from strangers we didn’t know, but Mitch did. It’s been a blessing to see how he has impacted people even though he’s gone.” The money raised at the Fly High event this summer was enough to fund another scholarship, at Campbell County High School. That will be an annual award of $1,000 to a Camels football player to attend a college of his choice. The first recipient was Noah Sell, whose coaches believe that he embod-

Consider choosing a real Christmas tree

FILE PHOTO

According to the Christmas Tree Farm Network, Christmas tree farms stabilize soil, protect water supplies and provide a shelter for wildlife.

Did you know that choosing a real Christmas tree over an artificial tree can be considered an environmentally sound choice? Here’s why. According to the Christmas Tree Farm Network, Christmas tree farms stabilize soil, protect water supplies and provide a shelter for wildlife. Christmas trees absorb carbon dioxide (a gas linked to global warming and climate change) while producing oxygen. How much oxygen? Just an

acre of Christmas trees produce the daily oxygen needed for 18 people. D.J. There Scully are about one million COMMUNITY RECORDER acres in GUEST Christmas COLUMNIST tree production, making enough oxygen daily for 18 million people. Real trees are all natural, renewable and

recyclable whereas artificial trees contain plastics and metals. Although artificial trees can be used repeatedly, they cannot be recycled and will remain buried in landfills for generations after being discarded because they do not decompose rapidly. In the Unites States, there are about 15,000 Christmas tree growers and the industry fully or partially employs 100,000 people. Growers replace cut trees each year with a new crop of seedlings. The vast majority of real Christmas trees sold in the United States are produced locally. Most artificial trees are manufactured in Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Transportation from these manufacturing sites in-

creases the emission of greenhouse gases. And, environmental protection and occupational health and safety measures in these countries are often not as stringent as those in the United States. So this year, give some consideration to the purchase of an all-natural Christmas tree making an environmentally conscious decision. To locate real Christmas tree growers visit the websites of the Kentucky, Ohio, and/ or Indiana Christmas Tree Growers’ Association. (Or visit Kentuckyfarmsarefun.com

and select the Northern Kentucky River Region.) D.J. Scully is the Campbell County natural resources and environmental management agent.

Area crews gear up for snow and ice season The plow blades have been sharpened. The salt domes are full. It’s snow and ice season, and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s (KYTC) maintenance crews are prepared and ready to battle the elements to keep Kentuckians moving this winter. At the Department of Highways District 5 office, Secretary Greg Thomas and State Highway Engineer Patty Dunaway Nov. 29 discussed the Cabinet’s upcoming snow and ice strategy, including new equipment to assist crews with their snow removal efforts. The Cabinet’s mission for snow and ice removal is to keep traffic moving in a safe manner with an emphasis on maintaining mobility along critical corridors and priority routes. “Snow and ice season is the Super Bowl of transportation,” said Thomas. “The Cabinet is committed to providing dependable service to the public, and we are prepared to respond to weather conditions that may affect travel.” With a strategy reminiscent of combat, nearly 2,000 professional “snowfighters” and support staff have been briefed and trained on how to tackle snow and ice removal. A statewide brigade of trucks and plows stands ready, and a new special teams strike force

of eight plows is stationed in Frankfort, positioned for district deployment during major winter weather events. The Cabinet will operate using snow and ice priority route maps during routine snow and ice occurrences. “We’ve sophisticated our strategy based on the unusually harsh winter hits Kentucky has seen in recent years that have impacted traffic on major roadways and interstates,” said Dunaway. “Our teams are ready to take on the snow and will work to maintain access on heavily travelled priority state routes.”

New this season New equipment has been secured, including a special teams strike force of eight retrofit snow plows housed in Frankfort for statewide deployment as needed in winter weather emergencies. The strike force is reserved for high-priority routes to ensure interstates remain open. The Cabinet has also developed a new webpage for all snow and ice information. The public can visit http://snowky.ky.gov to learn more about priority routes, access helpful winter weather tips and fact sheets and view informational videos on salt application and snow removal.

Make country ham the star of your holiday dinner Country ham is a regional delicacy that many of us enjoy but may not know how to properly prepare. Country ham or dry cured ham is the uncooked, cured, dried, smoked or unsmoked meat from a market hog. It is prepared by the dry application of salt or by salt and one or more optional ingredients: nutritive sweeteners, spices, seasonings, flavorings or sodium or potassium nitrite. They may not be injected with curing solutions nor placed in curing solutions. Here are some tips and tricks to make country ham the star of your holiday dinner. Whole country hams may contain mold, which is a result of the curing process. Mold is normal, but it could produce mycotoxins which could cause a food-borne illness. Remove mold by washing the ham with hot water and scrubbing it with a stiff vegetable brush. A mild vinegar and water solution will help clean the ham.

Holiday bites may equal weight gain The holiday season is usually filled with food occasions. From regular meals to office parties, social events to gift giving, we may be surrounded with tempting food choices. While many of the foods are “special occasion treats” the calories from them can still add up to unwanted weight if we don’t keep an eye on what we do. One small cookie might pack 100 calories. A tablespoon of dip on a chip could add another 100 calories. The following hints may help you navigate food events in the coming weeks and any time of the

year. Survey the buffet. Before grabbing a plate and filling it with food, Diane take a walk Mason around the food areas EXTENSION NOTES to see what is available. Make a plan for what you will choose and eat. Fill your plate with plenty of vegetables. Choose the special treats carefully. Savor every bite. Take time to enjoy the foods you select and pay attention to the texture and flavor. Put the utensil down

frequently when eating to allow yourself time to chew and savor. When putting away leftovers, avoid the temptation of just eating the last bite or two to avoid wasting or storing them. Those bites can add hundreds of calories to a daily eating plan and you may not even remember doing it. Try brushing your teeth or chewing gum before tackling the food storage and cleanup phase of an event. Chew gum while preparing food. This will help decrease your urge to sample and eat. Plan to eat only from a plate and only while sitting. This simple plan may help you socialize more and control your calorie intake. When out and about running errands or shopping, set a goal of not eating in a moving vehicle. Plan time to sit down to enjoy the foods you’ve selected. Eat a healthy meal or snack before heading out into the hustle and bustle. Shopping on a full stomach may help you avoid temptations. Remember it is not the kinds of foods we eat that cause us to gain or lose weight – it is the amount of food we eat without needing it for energy. The temptations during the busy holiday season can often derail our plans. Take time to enjoy the food with a goal of starting 2017 without extra unwanted pounds.

Public art in N. Ky. gets funding to expand Public artists in Northern Kentucky recently got a financial boost from Skyward and the Center for Great Neighborhoods through the myNKYNano Grant Pilot Program, which supports creative place-making projects created by local residents, students or workers that bring Northern Kentuckians together, build a sense of community, celebrate differences, and foster community pride. “By being intentional about the stories we tell through public art and the use of space, we can write a fresh chapter about Northern Kentucky and the people who call it home. The quality and range of ideas that are developing through these relatively small grants is proving that Northern Kentuckians have creative ideas and are willing to get involved. We look forward to supporting these ideas through the completion of the projects,” said Bill Scheyer, president of Skyward. This partnership expands an existing program led by The Center in the city of Covington into three additional communities that are part of Skyward’s ninecounty target area for the myNKY Plan: Dayton, Florence and Pendleton County. Winners from the myNKY Nano Grant Pilot, Round One are: » Dayton Storytime – Encouraging Dayton residents of all ages to gather to hear local stories in a series of evening events designed to increase civic pride and friendships among neighbors. » Take a Look @ Dayton, KY – A contest creating short videos about Dayton. This project will get many looking at the city differently and from new perspectives. » Rose Buddies – Beautification,

Introducing . . .

community engagement and education project that will keep the Knockout Roses along Florence’s Mall Road blooming all season. » Little Free Libraries for PC – A rural take on the Free Little Library movement, this project will build small structures for free book exchanges at a number of locations in the county, and create signage to direct people to them. » A “Ewe-Nique Art Hop – This project will commission local artists to create artwork to be displayed in vacant storefronts in Falmouth during the highly visited Pendleton County Wool Festival. In conjunction with the unveiling of the art work, pop-up galleries will open and local musicians will play, encouraging residents and visitors to enjoy local heritage, art and culture. » Imagine This … – This project will expand existing leadership and community engagement programming to younger students through an art and essay contest throughout the school district on the topic of the future of Pendleton County. “The response to the myNKY grant opportunity is really exciting. We have witnessed the ripple effect that the Nano Grants can have by encouraging residents to get involved, share their talents with their neighbors, and positively influence their community” said Kate Greene, program manager of community development at The Center. Applications, along with complete eligibility details, can be found online at www.skywardnky.org. For more information, contact Kate Greene with The Center at 859-803-8963 or kate@greatneighborhoods.org.
