Gateway Project intended to spruce up Commonwealth By Melissa Stewart

ERLANGER — Plans are set for phase two of the Gateway Project, the beautification of Erlanger’s Commonwealth Avenue, off of Interstate 75. “We want to create a gateway that is welcoming for current residents and visitors,” said Carter Dickerson, landscape architect for the engineering group Viox & Viox. “We hope to sustain economic development, too. We hope potential developers and landowners will see that we’re creating the nicest possible doorway to their potential development.” Phase two will cost $220,000 and start in April, weather permitting. The project focuses on safety enhancement and beautification. Broken sections of sidewalks will be repaired, handicap ramps will be brought up to Americans With Disabilities Act standards and new ladder-style striping for all crosswalks will be done, Dickerson said. “There are a lot of pedestrian uses of Commonwealth and we want to make as safe a route to school, work and recreational destinations as we possibly can,” Dickerson said. The grass area, close to the curb along the tree line, will be replaced with a 24inch-wide red brick accent band. To save on costs and

The preparatory work day will be 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 1, for Middleton-Mills Park Sugar Camp, which is expected to take place from Monday, Feb. 24, through Sunday, March 2. During the work day, volunteers will gather, haul, split and

stack firewood to cook maple syrup. They’ll also build a wikiup, or shelter, made from park trees and other brush. Hot chocolate, cooked in a kettle on the wood fire, will also be served. Participants are encouraged to wear layered work clothes, bring work gloves, tools and wheelbarrows, if possible. They will meet at shelter house 2. See WINTER, Page A2

Erlanger-Elsmere Schools discuss heroin By Melissa Stewart

ERLANGER — As the heroin epidemic continues to fester throughout Northern Kentucky, most – even children – are not immune. “Substance abuse is impacting all of Northern Kentucky,” said Erlanger-Elsmere Schools Superintendent Kathy Burkhardt. “In the media we see stories daily about adults being addicted and incarcerated, families being displaced, and youth using substances which are very harmful to them. No school or no community is in a



Park activities take flight in winter INDEPENDENCE — While most Kenton County parks activities take place in the spring, summer and fall, Recreation Programs Coordinator Steve Trauger stays hard at work all year long. Trauger has several events planned through the winter. From 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28, Trauger will present a Northern Kentucky Bluebird Trail Monitors meeting, along with a Chat ‘N Chew information session at the William E. Durr branch of the Kenton County Public Library, 1992 Walton-Nicholson Pike, Independence. Trauger will be joined by Adult Program Director Brenda Clark, and Northern Kentucky Bluebird Trail Monitor Chrisula Stone, as well as Biology Integration and Outreach for Science Education representative Tom Sproat. The event will begin with a potluck supper, so participants are expected to bring a dish to share. The program will include information about the Eastern bluebird and other cavity nesting birds, and participants will learn what it takes to be a nestbox monitor. For more information and to register, call Trauger at 859-


bubble and I would venture to say that no community or school in our region could say they have not been affected.” Burkhardt The school district has partnered with the Kenton County Alliance, a community organization of volunteers who work to reduce alcohol, tobacco and other drug use among youth, to address the issue of substance abuse. A town hall meeting, Heroin and other Drugs, will be 6:30-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan.

29, in Dietz Auditorium at Lloyd Memorial High School, 450 Bartlett Ave., Erlanger. The goal is to provide information on how parents and community groups can work together to combat substance abuse issues. Topics will include prevention, harm reduction, intervention, local data, school policies and resources. “As schools and communities it is our responsibility to work together to educate our students and families in order educate and prevent substance abuse,” Burkhardt said. “The more we collaborate, the more effective we can be in prevent-

increase the lifetime of the band, Dickerson said a longlasting concrete, dyed red, will be poured and stamped with a brick appearance. This phase will also include the removal of the bus shelter at the corner of Commonwealth Avenue and Baker Street. The goal, Dickerson said, is to build a new and more aesthetically appealing shelter in phase three. Last year the city budgeted about $50,000 for phase one of the Gateway Project. This portion involved having 65 red maple trees planted along Commonwealth Avenue from Baker Street to Houston Road. There were also a few sidewalk repairs and the clearing of overgrown vegetation. The total Gateway Project cost, with unlimited funding, would be about $1.1 million, according to Dickerson. However, the city is working with capital improvement funds it has available, Public Works Director Rick Bogard said. “We are open to grant opportunities and other outside resources available as well,” he said. “However, in this economy, those are few and far between unfortunately. “ Bogard said the project is being spread out over several years and will include about five phases. Future phases could include pedestrian street lighting with 12-foot black lantern poles. “The biggest dream is to potentially replace the traffic signals now dangling by wires with those hanging from mast-arm See SPRUCE, Page A2

Park Hills extending Dixie Highway sidewalk By Chris Mayhew

PARK HILLS — The sidewalk along Dixie Highway will no longer end in front of Covington Catholic High School. The city will pay to extend the sidewalk north along Dixie Highway this spring, Catchen starting at St. Joseph Lane, with a $300,000 reimbursement from Kentucky’s Transportation Enhancement Program. “It’s going to finish the sidewalk from right here at Covington Catholic High School down to Arlington Road,” said Mayor Don Catchen. Council voted unanimously Jan. 13 to

enter into an encroachment agreement with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to build the sidewalk in the right-of-way. The money will also pay for landscaping and lighting, Catchen said. “It will dress up the street in front of these businesses,” he said. Councilwoman Pam Spoor said the city will seek construction bids in February for the project with the idea of starting work in March or early April. What type of light posts the city can afford to install will be determined by the cost to construct the sidewalk, she said. The plan calls for 10 posts that will have LED (light-emitting diode) lights. The hope is the city can afford fixtures looking like old-fashioned gaslights.

City Engineer Jay Bayer said the sidewalk construction will include installing curbs and dealing with water drainage, and four walk/don’t walk signs in the construction bid for the sidewalk. The sidewalk will improve the safety in the area for pedestrians who already walk regularly to businesses on that side of the Dixie Highway, he said. “They’re walking on parking lots primarily, so this will kind of define their space,” Bayer said. Spoor said she hopes the city will get more money from the state later this year to finish the sidewalk further north from Arlington Road into Covington past The Views Condominiums and Grays Peak Drive. “People do walk down to and by the Views (Con-

Avenue. “This will beautify the area and break up the sea of concrete, as well as help calm traffic, similar to what was done on Ky. 16 in Taylor Mill,” Dickerson said. “People tend to drive

slower when they’re on a boulevard, driving along next to trees and green space. “ According to Mayor Tom Rouse, it’s time for the city to concentrate on this entryway. “Our front

door has looked pretty shabby for years, and we want to freshen it up,” Rouse said. “We’ve budgeted monies to address the entrance; this is an important part of attracting people to our city.”


who also supports Wild Wednesdays and (Almost) Every Other Thursday Science programs through the summer, said working with Kenton County Parks and Recreation programs is a “nobrainer.” “All you need to do is visit one of Steve Trauger’s events to know that he’s good with kids, his programs are consistently fun for the whole family, and he’s always working to make it better,” he said. “I love working with Steve. He’s very organized and he plans ahead. I know I can count on him for anything.” Shelter house reservations begin for walk-in

guests on Monday, Feb. 3, at the Kenton County Parks and Recreation office, 3902 Richardson Road, Independence, just inside the entrance to The Golf Courses of Kenton County. The office is open between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. They accept Visa and MasterCard, personal checks, money orders and cash. Walk-in guests have first dibs on available dates for reservations in all shelter houses. Then, on Friday, Feb. 7, online reservations begin at 5 p.m. Visit the Kenton County Fiscal Court website,

never seen anything quite like the heroin epidemic. She said that discussion and education are essential to fighting this and all substance abuse and preventing use in the first place. “Our focus is prevention,” she said. “Our job is to prevent the start of using in the first place; the more that we can do that, the more we wrap our arms around our children and let them know we are there for them and help them make healthy choices, the better off we are. We want to make sure the kids are educated on these issues and reinforce that it’s OK not become involved with substance abuse.” The session is open to adults over age 18. Food and child care will be provided. To reserve a spot in

child care call 342-5480. Similar sessions, geared toward students, will be held throughout the school day on Jan. 29 at Lloyd and Tichenor. According to Burkhardt, research shows that prevention is “key in stopping substance abuse.” “If people do not know or understand the dangers, one uneducated act may ruin their lives or even end their lives,” she said. “The Erlanger-Elsmere school district provides our students with high quality instruction in order to best prepare our students to be college and career ready. However, we know in order to best educate all students we must prevent and reduce barriers for them.”

According to Kenton County Alliance Co-chair Mary Burch, bringing the entire community together is the only way to fight and prevent substance abuse. “No one person or agency can do it alone,” she said. “Heroin and other substance abuse effects everyone, just as if it’s an issue in someone’s life, it affects every area of their life.” Burch said the organization, which has been around about10 years, has

Crestview Hills seeks signs for navigating office park Corp. building, he said. “You’re kind of making it a little more simple for people to find things,” Williams said. The signs are needed because the city receives complaints from visitors saying they can’t find their doctor’s office. Current sign regulations limit what businesses can do on their building or property, Williams said. “You can’t just put big billboards up,” he said. The committee is working on how big each of the signs will be, a color-coding system for different areas of the office park, cost estimates and proposed sign locations, Williams said. Mayor Paul W.

is for signs to be installed by the end of the year, but first council has to decide whether to approve the project. “It’s not going to be inexpensive to fabricate and install all of these,” he said. Businesses participating on the committee include St. Elizabeth Healthcare and Thomas More College, Williams said. “Hemmer Management (Group) of course, who owns a lot of the buildings over there, has a seat at the table,” he said. Councilman Frank Sommerkamp Jr. said during the Jan. 9 meeting he was glad to hear from Williams the ad hoc wayfinding committee meetings were being well-attended by businesses. “It’s an important project for the city,” Sommerkamp said.

Gateway part of College Goal Gateway Community and Technical College will offer free help to families applying for college financial aid from 4-6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 29, at the college’s Edgewood Campus, 790 Thomas More Parkway, as part of the statewide College Goal Kentucky effort. Gov. Steven L. Beshear proclaimed January 2014 as Financial Aid Awareness Month in

the state to promote access to information about financial aid programs. More than three dozen information sessions will be conducted across the state between December and February to make it easier for families to understand and apply for financial aid. The Gateway session will take place at the college’s Student Services Center on the Ed-

gewood Campus. Financial aid professionals will be on hand to answer questions and provide help in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. According to the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority, participation in state aid programs has more than quadrupled since the 1990s. Last year, KHEAA disbursed

and any other 2012 income and benefit information. For those applying for aid for the fall 2014 semester, participants should bring completed 2013 tax returns and income and benefit information. The event is free, and no reservations are necessary. For more information about the Gateway session, contact

Scholarship deadline is in March

College students’ work at Summerfair art exhibit Summerfair Cincinnati will host the annual Emerging Artists Exhibit on Friday, Jan. 31, which features the artwork of 18 students from local colleges and universities. The roster of schools has expanded this year to include Thomas More College. “It is a privilege for Summerfair Cincinnati to be able to give these students the opportunity to showcase their outstanding work to the community,” said Sharon Strubbe, executive director of Summerfair Cincinnati. “The art we see produced by these students each year really speaks to the strength of the programs at our local colleges and universities, as well as the future of our local art scene.” Those selected to display their work in the Emerging Artists Exhibit were nominat-

nearly $200 million in higher education grants and scholarships to almost 94,000 students. Students who file the FAFSA before early February have the best chance of receiving KHEAA funds. If applying for financial aid for spring or summer 2014 terms, College Goal Kentucky participants should bring completed 2012 IRS 1040 tax returns

ed by their professors and selected by Strubbe, whose arts background and formal training in the visual arts provides a keen eye toward curating such an exhibit annually. They represent the next generation of local artists to emerge into the national arts community. The exhibition will open with a reception from 6-8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 31, at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center. It is free. As it has done in the past, Summerfair Cincinnati will present one $1,000 Purchase Award to one of the 18 participating students. The award is made possible by Summerfair Cincinnati’s largest fundraiser, the annual Summerfair at Coney Island. The artwork selected will become part of the permanent collection in the Summerfair Cincinnati gallery.

Participating students include: Northern Kentucky University Andrea Melnyk Tyler Griese Michael Molloy Miami University Thomas More College Madeline Hrybyk Carlton Kutz Jesse Thayer Kathryn Huyge Rebecca Guiliano Emily Sanker The exhibit will be on display from Jan. 31 through Feb. 16, Mondays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Thursdays from noon-7 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center, 3711 Clifton Avenue, Cincinnati. Additional information can be found by visiting or calling 513-531-0050.

The deadlines to apply for scholarships at Gateway Community and Technical College is Monday, March 3, for high school students graduating in spring 2014 and Tuesday, April 1, for other new, current or returning students. “Scholarships are a vitally important alternative to help students finance their education,” said Will Bradley, Gateway coordinator of scholarships and financial aid. “Gateway offers 33 different kinds of scholarships ranging in size from $200 to $5,000. For the 2013-2014 academic year, we awarded $195,943 in scholarships to 133 students.” Bradley added that scholarship criteria vary, and not everyone must be a straight-A student. “We have scholarships available for single parents, minority students, and students with a 2.0 average who show academic promise. We have general scholarships available for students in any field, as well as scholarships for specific disciplines, such as advanced manufacturing, electrical technology, computer-assisted drafting and design, education, nursing and al-

lied health.” Gateway also has tuition-assistance funds available from a federal grant specifically for low-income students interested in certain allied health careers. “We’ve added scholarships this year for new high school graduates and for military veterans,” Bradley said. “But you cannot win a scholarship if you don’t apply,” he added. “Our best advice to students is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid as quickly as possible and submit Gateway scholarship applications to us by the deadlines. Scholarships help students avoid accumulating excessive student debt.” To explore Gateway scholarship options and obtain application forms, visit www.gate When completing the FAFSA application, enter the Gateway federal school code to ensure that the information reaches Gateway. Gateway’s federal school code is 013753.

VMA hoops aim to defend in conference chase By James Weber

‘Circle of inclusion’ grows with Scott, Dixie Heights friendship By Adam Turer

EDGEWOOD — Another chapter was written in a lifelong friendship on Jan. 17 at Dixie Heights High School. It marked the final time Colonels forward Matt Wehrle would shake hands with Scott High School basketball manager Brody Flynn following a contest between the two rivals. The two seniors have known one another since they were infants. Their mothers are close friends and the families share vacations and holidays together. Matt and his younger brother, Ben, share a love of basketball with Brody and his younger brother, Drew. Matt has been a champion for Brody, who was born with Down Syndrome. “It’s just awesome seeing the challenges he faces day in and day out

and to still have as much fun as he has,” Wehrle said. No moment was as fun as the final minutes of Scott’s season opener against Calvary Christian. For the first time in his career, Brody was provided with a uniform - No. 23, which belonged to his favorite player from last year’s team, Nick Jackson. He entered the game in the closing minutes and, after missing his first few shots, delivered with a layup for his first varsity points. “I knew I was going to score,” said Brody, who is known for his relentless optimism and confidence. Eagles coach Brad Carr said it’s great having him around. “As coaches, we try to preach the simple things and that’s how he lives his life. He reminds us all that every day is a great day.” The friendly rivalry between the Flynns and

Wehrles took a turn after the Eagles upset the Colonels last season. That meant that Matt had to endure an entire offseason of Brody’s ribbing. “That was the worst thing that could have happened to me. I had to hear about it all year,” Wehrle joked. During this year’s rematch, a 59-40 Dixie Heights win, Brody had another moment in the limelight. The home crowd showed its respect for the visiting manager, as one of Matt’s classmates started a “We love Brody” chant. Never one to shy from attention, Brody ran over to the Dixie Heights section in the middle of the game to give Matt's friend a hug and to greet the cheering section. “To us it just showed how the ‘circle of inclusion’ grows from one school to another,” said Kelly Flynn, Brody’s and

Drew’s mother. Wehrle has struggled through injuries this year, but his attitude has never wavered. He continues to learn from his friend, while setting an example of his own. “Matt Wehrle is a wonderful student athlete who gives 100 percent of his energy to anything he is involved in including his relationships with other students and athletes in our program and throughout the area,” Colonels coach Ken Chevalier said. “He is such a likeable person because he treats everyone with respect and in return he has many friends and gets along with anyone and everyone he comes in contact with at school and in his athletic endeavors.” Brody and Matt shoot hoops together during the offseason, but during the season his Eagles teamSee FRIENDS, Page A8

VILLA HILLS — While the team isn’t as deep as in recent years, the Villa Madonna Academy girls basketball team is chasing full speed ahead after its annual goals. The Blue Lightning are 7-6 heading into a game at Bellevue Jan. 21. VMA is 4-0 in Division III of the Northern Kentucky Athletic Conference heading into that game, and Bellevue is 3-1. A win would help solidify VMA’s chances of a fifth-straight conference title. Entering the week, Dayton and Calvary Christian also had one NKAC loss, both to VMA. “Bellevue looks pretty good,” said longtime head coach Don Shields. “I thought Calvary was going to be really good and we beat them pretty good (by 18 points), but maybe we overplayed against them and they had a bad game. You never know, each game is different.” Shields, in his 25th season as head coach, had 391 career wins entering the Bellevue game. VMA has done well with this year with the starting five getting most of the points and minutes. Senior guard Alex Hengge averages 9.5 points and nine rebounds. She can play every position and is a strong leader. The four-year player was an all-region goalkeeper in soccer this past fall. Sophomore forward Lexie Aytes averages 10.7 points a game and can play guard. A strong athletic player, Aytes can shoot threes and rebound. Senior forward Morgan Trusty, a first-year starter, averages seven rebounds a game and has had several double-digit scoring efforts, averaging 5.5 ppg. Senior 6-foot center Maria Blom missed most of last season with an ACL tear in her knee and has returned to average five

points, with several double-digit rebounding efforts. Junior Charissa Junker averages seven points a game and is second on the team to Hengge in 3-pointers made (17). “We have three good shooters and that’s a strength for us,” Shields said. “We’re playing better than what we expected. We’re battling and doing a good job.” The defense has been strong as usual, with VMA always near the top of the state rankings in points allowed. VMA allows 42 points per game this season, 30 per contest in the seven wins. VMA allowed 51 to regional contender Newport Central Catholic in the All “A” tournament. The Lightning also hope to strike in the Ninth Region Tournament. VMA has lost 58-36 to St. Henry but beaten 54-27 in 34th District play. VMA plays at Lloyd Jan. 23 and hosts Dixie Heights Feb. 1. Also this week, VMA travels to Berea College Saturday, Jan. 25, to play Garrard County, giving the team the opportunity to play in a different environment. VMA last played in the regional in 2011. “I think we have a shot at the district and it would be nice to get to the regional,” Shields said. “The girls are looking forward to it.” Follow James Weber on Twitter, @RecorderWeber

Dixie Heights wrestlers prove tough in tourneys By James Weber

EDGEWOOD — The Dixie Heights High School wrestling team has been a force to reckon with in tough tournaments this year. It has been a different story in dual matches, because the Colonels have only filled half the lineup in most of their competition. The story is likely to have a pleasant ending because the postseason is a tournament format, and several Colonels have a chance to collect hardware. “With what we’ve got, we’ve done real well,” said longtime head coach Ken Simmons. “I knew we wouldn’t have a full team, but we’re experienced.” Dixie has four seniors and

two juniors among its regulars. At the Norwood Invitational in Cincinnati, Dixie beat 11 other teams to win the event with only six entrants. Dixie also finished third out of 17 at a meet in Reading, Ohio, that is usually one of Cincinnati’s most competitive tournaments. Dixie was set to compete at Sycamore Jan. 18 before Senior Night Jan. 22. Then, the Colonels will take on one of Kentucky’s biggest meets, the Dragon Invitational at South Oldham High School Jan. 25. “It builds their confidence, they do real well against tough competition,” Simmons said. “We’ve wrestled in some good tournaments.” Austin Jackson is the leading winner on the team so far at 23-2. A senior, he was fourth in the state at 145 pounds last year

and regional runner-up. This season, he won his weight class at both Reading and Norwood, and won the Northern Kentucky Athletic Conference title at 145 pounds. Dominic Castellano, a senior, is 20-4. He’s the conference champion at 113 and won Reading at 120.

Junior heavyweight Branden Johnson won Reading at 285. He was a regional runner-up last year. Junior Joey Scaggs is14-1. He won Reading and Norwood but missed the conference meet because of injury. He was fourth in the state at 106 last season after winning the regional title.

Simmons said losing four Colonels to graduation will be a blow next season, but he is attempting to build numbers and confidence by having younger wrestlers compete at the junior varsity level. Follow James Weber on Twitter, @RecorderWeber



Team chemistry sparks TMC women’s hoops By Adam Turer

This year’s Thomas More College women’s basketball team is noticeably different from last year’s, but not for just the obvious reason. Yes, University of Florida transfer and Boone County High School graduate Sydney Moss is leading the nation in scoring in her first year playing for the Saints. But, this team is far from a one-woman show. The Saints are off to a 15-0 start and are ranked No. 6 in the nation in the latest poll. With a roster full of local products, Thomas More is dominating opponents and leads the nation in average scoring margin. “Honestly, there is a very different feeling this year,” said senior point guard Devin Beasley (Conner). “It’s a lot of fun. I know that anybody that I pass to will know how to finish and make plays. This is the kind of team I’ve always wanted to play with.” Seven-straight Presidents Athletic Conference tournament championships are nice, but the Saints are hungry for more. Excellent regular seasons have been overshadowed by disappointing playoff exits. Despite six-straight seasons of 25 wins or more, the Saints have only advanced to the Sweet Sixteen once, and never further, during the recent stretch of success. “We haven’t done any-

thing yet. This is a different team and a new year,” head coach Jeff Hans said. “We know where we want to be at the end, and we’re working hard to get to that point.” The team’s three seniors – Beasley, Katie Kitchen, and Moriah Corey – have won just three playoff games over the past three seasons. They are determined to advance beyond the second round of the tournament this year. “I hate always getting knocked out in the first weekend,” Beasley said. “We are determined to make history. We want to get past the Sweet Sixteen and get to a National Championship.” Beasley is facilitating to a roster full of offensive weapons, averaging 7.9 assists per game, thirdbest in the nation. Moss is averaging a nation-best 25.5 points per game, and Kitchen just surpassed 1,000 career points. Junior forward Jenny Burgoyne is averaging 16.3 points

per contest. Most importantly, these ladies truly enjoy playing together. “It’s a family here,” Beasley said. “Our team chemistry is something that I’ve never been a part of.” The PAC is not putting up much of a fight so far this season. One of the biggest challenges for Thomas More will be how the Saints work to improve down the stretch. They will have to compete against their best selves in addition to competing against their remaining regular season opponents. “We try to concentrate on getting better every day,” said Hans. “Four out of six days a week, we’re going against pretty good competition in practice. Our practices should always be harder than games. We can’t get complacent. We have to be humble and continue to be hungry.” The Saints host threestraight conference opponents to close out the month, Jan. 22, 25, and 29.

NKU is one of 37 NCAA Division I programs to be honored with this award for the 2013 season.

For his lifelong pal, the Jan. 17 game was bittersweet. He will miss the constant smack talk and the friendly postgame greeting from the opposing bench. “I give a lot of love to Scott for what they do for him,” said Wehrle. “It was rough for me, knowing that that was the last time (we would face each other).” Wehrle’s love for Brody is just another example of his maturity and the example that he sets for the student body.

It takes a community to improve our health, longevity Just as we say it takes a village to raise a child, at the YMCA, we know that it takes a community to get active, change our eating habits and improve our overall health and longevity. While the New Year brings new opportunities, such as enjoying a new exercise program or changing up your workout, each of us needs a plan to be successful. If your New Year’s resolution is to “eat healthier and start or maintain a structured exercise program,” consider connecting with a local YMCA in your neighborhood to find out how our network of health and wellness staff and facil-

ities might be the answer for you. Experts in the field of science and nutrition tell us the best way to succeed when it Sandy comes to makWalker ing resoluCOMMUNITY tions is to be RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST realistic in goal setting.

Nancy Rowles of Covington responded to an ObamaCare letter saying, “No one, repeat no one, is a proponent of abortion.” Not true. Webster says a proponent is “One who proposes or supports something.” Since Planned Parenthood and The National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) both actively work for abortion rights, they are abortion proponents. Abortion is a surgical procedure designed to kill and remove from the womb a human infant before it is fully developed, carried to term and given birth. As such, abortion is the premeditated murder of a child in the womb. Some years ago, a representative of NARAL said that a child in the womb was a “foreign object” that women had the right to remove anytime they wanted to. That definition didn’t last long. Pro-lifers quickly pointed out that females are built the way they are for a reason and that is for procreation, to create new life. Babies are a biological necessity. Without them, the human race will become extinct. Females are designed to receive the sperm, create the new life and to nurture it inside themselves until that new little human is able to live and breathe on its own. That’s basic biology. Males are designed to plant the sperm and to get out

of the way. However, responsible and loving males will try to be helpful before pregnancy, during pregnancy and after the child is born. That’s only fair. The NARAL pro-abortionists argue that the aborted object is not a new life. Biology says otherwise. The object was created from a human egg and a human sperm. It is human. Its cells are dividing, its organs are forming and its body is growing. To quote Dr. Frankenstein, “It’s alive!” Abortion kills that new life. Stop it.

Years ago, the path to a college degree was fairly straightforward. Go to high school, take the placement test, enroll in college and finish. Not anymore. The path to higher education can be as unique and varied as the students who enroll. Gateway Community and Technical College is collaborating with local secondary schools, other colleges and universities, employers and others to customize the road to college to match individual needs. The journey for some begins in high school where the Gateway Regional Academy (GRA) offers high school students an opportunity to gain college credit. The Community College Research Center at Columbia University found that students who enroll in early college programs in high school are more likely to go to college and complete than are their peers. GRA students can earn up to 24 college credit hours at half Gateway tuition or less. Depending on their classes, GRA students may complete nearly all of their first year of college while still in high school, saving time and money toward a two-year or four-year degree. Many students choose community college as a quick and less expensive route to a highwage career in such fields as business, information technology, advanced manufacturing, health care, or other technical fields. Gateway offers more than 30 academic programs

that qualify students to be job-ready in as little as one semester, depending on their major. Partnerships with some G. Edward employers Hughes guarantee COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST hiring considCOLUMNIST eration and, in some cases, provide for apprenticeship programs that include tuition reimbursement. Other students may be interested in fields that require a bachelor’s degree. Gateway is smoothing these students’ paths through a variety transfer agreements. By law, Gateway credits transfer to any public university in Kentucky. By virtue of regional accreditation, our credits transfer to any other accredited college or university in the nation. We have established innovative transfer agreements with two of the region’s most recognized public and private institutions. The Gateway2NKU is a dual admission program with Northern Kentucky University that guarantees our graduates acceptance at NKU after they complete an associate-degree pathway. In the meantime, they are recognized as NKU students and have access to all Gateway and NKU services, including student activities, athletic events and Greek life. The Four is MORE scholarship partnership with Thomas More College also guarantees admission

to TMC for our associate degree graduates along with special TMC scholarships of up to $14,000 a year. Some students encounter detours on the path to college. Their journeys take them into the military, or they delay college for other reasons. Gateway has developed the Veterans Employment and Training Service (VETS) program to ease the transition from combat to career for veterans. The VETS staff, who are young Army and Navy veterans, provide career placement, career counseling and retention services to help veterans rebuild their civilian lives. Raise the Floor, Gateway’s newest access program, is designed to promote advanced manufacturing careers to women and prepare them for stable, highly paid, high performance production jobs. Raise the Floor, now in the pilot stage, will be implemented through four components, including awareness, training, and support to enable women to be hired and effective in advanced manufacturing positions. As the proverb says, the longest journey begins with a single step. The key is to take it. Students can register now to start college at Gateway on Feb. 6. The first step is to call 859-441-4500 or visit www.gate G. Edward Hughes, Ph.D., is president, Gateway Community and Technical College.

Rita shares her updated goetta recipe A couple of weeks ago, Linda Vaccariello of Cincinnati Magazine called and asked if I would share some tips on making goetta for an article she was writing. I told her I had just made a batch since I wanted to Rita share my Heikenfeld latest reciRITA’S KITCHEN pe with you. Goetta, as many of you know, is a Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky specialty. Goetta has Germanic origins, but most people who live in Germany have never heard of it. Inge, my German daughter-in-law who grew up in Germany, said she didn’t have a clue until she moved to Cincinnati. Yes, it’s definitely a Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky “thing.” A possibility about the name is that it comes from the German word “gote” or “gotte,” which means peeled grain. The word became Americanized to mean “goetta,” since the ingredient you cannot do without for authentic goetta is pinhead oats (also called steel-cut oats). Dorsel’s and Bob’s Red Mill are common brands. Goetta is a “hand-medown” recipe and each family’s is a bit different. It’s a ritual in my family and I even use my mother-in-law Clara’s special long-handled spoon that

she inherited from her mother. Jon Peters, a Western Hills reader, makes his father-in-law Bill Sanders’ recipe. “I even use his pan and really enjoyed making it this year. There’s something special about using a family recipe and making a big batch that you’re going to share with family and friends,” he told me. Jon and Ellen’s kids get to help, as well. Jon calls his loaves of goetta “bricks,” and his family’s recipe is on my blog.

Rita’s goetta

I’ve been making my mother-in-law Clara’s goetta for years with pork shoulder, just as she made it when they slaughtered hogs in autumn. I used to cook goetta from start to finish on top of the stove, but my sister-in-law, Claire Yannetti, gave me this tip: Cook meat and veggies on top of the stove and cook oats in the slow cooker. Much easier! Stovetop cooking requires frequent stirring and careful watching so oats don’t stick. Here’s my latest and, I think, best version. 3 pounds fresh pork shoulder, bone-in if possible, cut in half to fit pan 3 cups each: chopped onions and celery (include celery leaves) 4 dried bay leaves 2 tablespoons salt, or more to taste 1 tablespoon black pepper,

Rita’s latest goetta recipe features oats cooked in a slow cooker.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD or more to taste 8-10 cups water or more if needed 5 cups pinhead oats

Put meat, onions, celery, bay, salt and pepper in large stockpot. Cover meat with water by about an inch or so. Bring to a boil, cover, lower to a simmer and cook until meat falls from bone, 3 hours or so. Add water if necessary to keep meat just under liquid. Remove meat and let cool before chopping finely. Save liquid. (You could also cook meat and veggies in slow cooker and you probably won’t need

to add more water). Spray a 6-7 quart slow cooker and turn on high. Put liquid in and add oats, stirring to blend. Put lid on and cook two hours or so, stirring occasionally, until oats are thoroughly cooked and tender, and mixture is very thick. If necessary, add more water as oats cook, but be careful. The mixture, when cooked, should be thick enough for a spoon to stand up in without falling over and be difficult to stir. Add meat and continue to cook, covered, for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add more salt and

pepper if you want – don’t be shy about adding them. Remove bay leaves. Line bread pans with wrap or foil. Put goetta in pans, smoothing tops. Let cool, cover and store in refrigerator for 12 hours or so to set up. Store in refrigerator a week or several months in freezer. To serve: Fry with bacon until both goetta and bacon are crisp on both sides. Or in bacon grease. Tip: Quick-cooking pinhead oats now available. I just found this out and have not tested the

recipe with these, so I can’t recommend the substitution yet.

Learn how to safely and properly monitor bird nests, and contribute towards the conservation and study of birds. Kenton County Parks & Recreation will present a Chat ‘N Chew and Information Session 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28, at the Kenton County Public Library Durr Branch, 1992 Walton-Nicholson Rd., Independence. This fun, informative meeting is for current and prospective N.Ky. Bluebird Trail Monitors and those who may be interested in participating, as well as those just interested in birds.

duction and talk with pictures about the Eastern bluebird and other cavity nesting birds. Disucssion will include the purpose and benefits of the N.Ky. Bluebird Trail and explanation of the tasks of a nestbox monitor, along with some of the joys and heartbreaks of nestbox monitoring. What, exactly, does a monitor do? Monitors generally work from May and into August with regular visits to a series of numbered nestboxes, observing and recording the activity, noting such data as first nest-building activity and which species is using the nestbox. Other important data is collected, such

Speakers include Steve Trauger of Kenton County Parks & Recreation, with Brenda Clark of the Kenton County Public Library), Chrisula Stone of the N.Ky. Bluebird Trail Monitor and NestWatch Coordinator, and Tom Sproat of BIOSE.

as when the first egg appears, date the first egg hatches, and when the brood fledges, or leaves the nestbox as nearly selfsupporting individuals. Monitors also remove pests (wasps, ants and blowflies) from the nestboxes. We will be recruiting new monitors. There is commitment involved; however, if you are interested, be sure to let us know. Around 6:45 p.m., Stone will explain the NestWatch program from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, which involves more in-depth tracking of data and then entering the data collected at She has already entered the data she collected from the 2013 season. She will be recruiting data entry volunteer captains to enter data for monitors who might not be comfortable entering their own data online. There is additional training involved for those who wish to become certified in NestWatch and Stone will head that up with a later date to be determined. At 7:30 p.m., Sproat from BIOSE will explain why scientists band birds, show some of the tools he uses, and introduce his plan to begin banding birds that use our parks nestboxes.

Question: Is winter a good time to top my big maple trees? Can you recommend someone to do that? Answer: We would never recommend an arborist who tops trees. Many people are unaware of the detrimental effects of topping. Topping is a form of tree stress that can Mike and Klahr should be HORTICULTURE avoided. CONCERNS Topping involves drastic removal or cutting back of large branches in mature trees, leaving numerous large, bare branch stubs sticking up, sometimes all at about the same height. Topping can make a tree hazardous and reduce its life. Some homeowners believe that stimulation of new growth associated with topping is actually beneficial to the tree. Although the tree appears rejuvenated with new foliage and branches, this only serves to mask the real damage. Trees are mistakenly topped, under the best of intentions, to remove potentially hazardous dead and diseased branches. Unfortunately, topping indiscriminately removes healthy and unhealthy limbs. Problem limbs are best removed by selective pruning instead of top-

ping. In some situations, removing large limbs may be necessary; however, correct pruning alternatives such as proper early training, selective thinning out of branches and limbs, or whole tree removal should be considered and adopted. Removing the tree’s normal canopy suddenly exposes bark to the sun’s direct rays, often scalding newly exposed outer bark. Severe sun scald will cause the bark to split and obstruct the flow of nutrients. Topping not only cuts off a major portion of the tree’s food-making potential, it also severely depletes the tree’s stored reserves. It is an open invitation for the tree’s slow starvation. Large branch stubs and cuts left from topping seldom close. Nutrients are no longer transported to large stubs and that part of the tree becomes unable to seal off the injury. This leaves stubs vulnerable to insect invasion and fungal decay. Once decay has begun in a branch stub, it may spread into the main trunk, ultimately killing the tree, or causing it to fall. Topping removes all existing buds that would ordinarily produce normal sturdy branches and instead stimulates regrowth of weaklyattached watersprouts or suckers, which frequently break. Mike Klahr is extension agent for horticulture.

Small steps helps Rawe foundation gives to advocacy center in changing habits Did you resolve to do something this year? Have you made progress toward it? Whether the goal is big or small it is often about changing a small habit or two. Whether you resolved to go on vacation or lose weight or stop smoking, each goal can usually be traced to the habits we practice day in and day out. Some of our positive and healthy habits, like brushing our teeth, become so routine we don’t even think about them anymore. The same can be said about some of our not so healthy habits like eating because we see the food not because we are hungry. If you think carefully about what you want to accomplish you can usually break it into smaller parts. When you work to make small changes you may find you have greater success. Take for example a desire to lose weight. There are many elements required for successful, sustained weight loss. Think about one habit you are willing to work on that will help you accomplish your goal. If you want to change an eating habit, carefully consider what it is and why you have it. There is a story of someone who was gaining weight. It seems every time they got home from work they

grabbed something to eat as they walked in the door. The reason, they Diane entered Mason their EXTENSION house NOTES through the kitchen and there was always food sitting out. To change their habit and avoid the temptation of food, they started entering their house through the front door. This simple habit change allowed them to not be tempted by the extra food and they started losing weight. It wasn’t a big change but it was a realistic and achievable one. Take a look at some of the habits you might change that would improve your health. Pick one smaller habit you want to work on. Grab a calendar, hang it someplace where you will see it often and every day. Give yourself a star every time you accomplish the small step change. You might be amazed at how important those daily marks become and how motivating it can be to see that you are making progress toward your goals. Diane Mason is county extension agent for family and consumer sciences at the Boone County Cooperative Extension Service.

For a second year, the Albert S. and Anna L. Rawe Family Foundation selected the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center (NKYCAC) to be one of its 2013 charitable community partners. The center received a $7,500 gift from the family’s foundation to continue to provide trauma mental health services for children of abuse. “We are so grateful once again to the Rawe family for this very important and special gift,” said Vickie Henderson, executive director of the NKYCAC. “Providing mental health support to children after the horrors they have endured from abuse is an essential part of the healing process. The Rawe Family Foundation understands how important it is for children and families to have access to trauma informed mental health services as they begin their journey of healing and rebuilding their childhood.” Henderson said that last year the advocacy center provided nearly 300 mental health sessions to children, thanks to the backing of the Rawe Family Foundation. “It is apparent to us from the NKYCAC's mission and from meeting and talking with Vickie, her staff and other volunteers, that the NKYCAC pays attention to the little things that matter at such a time in individual’s lives,” said Roger Rawe, chairman of the Rawe Family Foundation. “The child-focused and childfriendly environment is a valuable comfort to a

hurting, confused or fearful child, and the counseling allows for hope that individuals can put their lives back into perspective.” The gift stemmed from proceeds from a successful second Albert S. & Anna L. Rawe Family Foundation Golf Outing on May 10 at Hickory Sticks Golf Club. The Rawe Foundation also raised funds from a first-time volleyball tournament at The Sandbar in June, and from personal contributions from family members, extended family members and friends, Rawe said.

Rawe explained why the advocacy center is an important part of their family’s philanthropy: “Being an abused child or a non-offending family member of an abused child has to be a haunting experience. We were blessed to have loving and caring parents and grandparents as we grew up in a

safe and nurturing environment. We appreciate that this (environment) was a gift and along with the size of our family, we have an opportunity to utilize that gift and work with others to make a difference in our community. “In addition to financially providing some support to the NKYCAC, our

involvement gives us the opportunity to become more understanding and appreciative of the diverse needs and answers that surround us in our daily lives.” For more information about the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center go to or call S859-442-3200.
