Toyota’s parting gift:

ROEBLING INNOVATION CENTER Melissa Reinert mstewart@enquirer.com

ERLANGER - Toyota is donating its Quality and Production Engineering lab on its Erlanger campus to develop a STEAM-focused center to serve the region. The vision, a collaborative endeavor involving state and local leaders, is the Ignite Institute at Roebling Innovation Center. The institute will provide world-class STEAM education to inspire the next generation to be creative, engaged, highly skilled, tech-savvy and work-ready problem solvers, said Mike Gross, general manager of Toyota Social Innovation. The goal is threefold: to open a world of possibilities for students through science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM); to fulfill the workforce pipeline with creative and educated workers; and to help make the Tristate an

Mike Hammons, 64, is doing the “most important” work of his life. Hammons is the director of advocacy for Children, Inc., leading efforts to increase public awareness of and support for young children. He also serves as director of Kentucky’s Voice for Early Childhood, a statewide online children’s advocacy network. Hammons “I’ve had an interest in early childhood for a number of years and it’s an area we’re learning a lot more about because of the advances around research in brain development,” he said. “A child’s whole life is built on the earliest years’ experiences and there are tremendous challenges families face today. There’s not having enough money; there’s the pressures and demands of work and just getting by.” That’s where Children’s Inc. helps. The Covingtonbased organization helps manage those pressures, Hammons said, in a way that doesn’t diminish the parent’s primary responsibility of nurturing their children. Recently, Hammons was recognized for his work, named a recipient of the Behringer-Crawford Museum’s Two-Headed Calf Award. The award, which honors

Northern Kentuckians for significant accomplishments in the areas of history, education and community service, are named for the museum’s most notorious and fun exhibit: a preserved, two-headed calf. The calf, which celebrates its 101st anniversary at the museum this year, symbolizes that, very often, true excellence rests with those who demonstrate achievement beyond a single contribution. Just as two heads are better than one, so too, is the service of the people these awards honor. Dave Schroeder, director of the Kenton County Public Library and Dr. Terri CoxCruey, superintendent of Kenton County Schools, were also honored with the award this year. All recipients will be honored at an awards dinner and gala at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 30, at Northern Kentucky University’s Votruba Student Union Ballroom. Allinclusive tickets are $100 per person or $800 for a table of eight. For reservations, call 859-491-4003 or email Laurie Risch at lrisch@bcmuseum.org by March 24. According to Hammons, he is “honored to be recognized” but the real reward is helping children. “All my life I’ve tried to have a positive impact on my community,” he said. “I’ve done a lot of different things but I don’t know of anything as important as supporting parents and helping children get a good start in life.” See CHILDREN, Page 2A

ance, John said his father aimed to help Northern Kentucky see its regional potential by getting everyone to the table to work towards common goals. Historian Jim Claypool has known Hammons for 22 years. They worked together on the Northern Kentucky Encyclopedia. Claypool ended up moving next door to Hammons in Park Hills and nominated him for the Two-headed Calf Award. “Mike is an outstanding individual with fine character,” Claypool said. “He’s a person who really cares about people and the community. You wouldn’t want a better person as your neighbor or friend.” According to Hammons daughter Theresa Hammons, her father is “a connector, a bridge builder.” “Dad is one of the most genuinely thoughtful, generous people you could meet,” she said. “Dad’s work in Frankfort means that children and families in the community and across the state have a resolute voice that goes face-to-face with policy makers.” For Hammons, who has served on more than 70 local boards, committees and other community service positions during his career, “it’s all about doing the right thing.” “I’m grateful for the sunshine, my family, my wife and kids and grandkids, my work. I’m grateful I get a chance to contribute to society. We are all interdependent. We work best when we look out for one another I’m grateful to be in a job where I can do that.

a school by the fall of 2019 for the 2019-2020 school year. “This school will include the best aspects of innovative schools around the country,” Boone Schools Superintendent Randy Poe said. “The entire school will be based on a projectbased learning, real industry-case methodology. We want students to be empowered, so that when they graduate they have the opportunities of a lifetime.” The project will receive $6.8 million in a Kentucky Work Ready Skills initiative grant. Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin said this project is an opportunity for Kentucky to become a leader in America. “I applaud this innovative collaboration between Toyota and local education, business and community partners,” Bevin said. “This project serves as additional proof that Kentucky is on track to become the nation’s unparalleled hub of engineering and manufacturing excellence.” The school will initially open for grades 9-12 with a capacity to serve 1,000 students. It will be public, free and inclusive. Admission will be based on a student’s desire. It will be funded with public school dol-

lars and, it is hoped, private support in order to serve students from a diverse range of socioeconomic, demographic and geographic areas. According to Gross, Roebling Innovation Center will also support other activities and is envisioned to be a collaborative space for educators, a center for business engagement, a potential national hub for STEAM teacher training and an early childhood education center. “The name is inspired by John A. Roebling, who designed one of the region’s most distinctive landmarks, the Suspension Bridge,” he said. “Not only was he an internationally known engineer, Roebling was a student of philosophy, a civic and moral leader, and a successful businessman and manufacturer. The lab facility is an 183,000-square-foot, twostory building located at 37 Atlantic Ave., Erlanger. It has expansive lab and engineering work spaces, high bay equipment areas, office spaces, high ceilings to accommodate robotics and automation, several mezzanines, and multiple elevators. The donation also includes about 22 acres of adjacent parking lots.

“We don’t have concrete information that there will be any changes,” she said. “We respect the work that Gov.

Cox-Cruey and interim deputy superintendent Tracey Mann will retire April 1. Deputy superintendent Barb Martin retired March 1. The reason, according to district spokesperson Jess Dykes, is so they can retire under the current Kentucky Teachers’ Retirement System. Retiring now will ensure their ability to roll the monetary value of unused sick time into their salary for better retirement benefits, Dykes said. However, Dykes told The Enquirer last week that the district is unaware of any changes to the current retirement system.

Cop takes legal guardianship of veteran with dementia Melissa Reinert mstewart@enquirer.com

ERLANGER - Norm, 83, of Erlanger was living alone. The Korean War veteran was recently diagnosed with dementia, but had no family to turn to for help. That’s when Erlanger Police Department’s Jon Sterling stepped up. Sterling, who was made Norm’s legal guardian, started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to help Norm get into a care facility. His goal was to raise $5,500; the entrance fee and first month’s rent. A total of $10,000 was raised in just three days. “It makes me feel awesome, but I knew this would happen,” Sterling said. “The people here in

Erlanger, Elsmere, and Crescent Springs – the Tristate – are good people. Norm deserves this. He deserves a place where he can spend his day comfortably.” Norm just moved into the care facility March 1 and he’s doing “great,” according to Sterling. Sterling met Norm four years ago while responding to a call about a suspicious person that Norm had made. “Norm is a good guy,” Sterling said. “He was always looking out for his neighbors. We became fast friends. We’d run into each other at the store occasionally and just stop and shoot the breeze for hours. He has a largerthan-life personality.” About a month ago,

Sterling learned that Norm had become ill. After receiving guardianship of his friend, he applied for veteran benefits and started looking for a care facility. Between social security and the new veteran benefits, Norm could afford the care he needs, but he didn’t have the money for the down payment. But now, with the help of the community, Sterling said Norm is a very happy man. “It was all about Norm,” Sterling said. “People have praised me for this, but really, it’s not about me. I didn’t do this for me, I did this for Norm and I’m thankful to everyone who contributed or shared our story. Whatever you did to help, words fail. It’s just fantastic.”

Luncheon honors Groneck’s career of service St. Henry High School presents ‘Grease!’ Earlier this year, Daniel R. Groneck was named the 2017 Northern Kentuckian of the Year. Groneck will be honored on May 12 at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center. The ceremony will include a reception at 11:15 a.m. and a luncheon at noon. The event is presented by sponsor U.S. Bank. The Northern Kentuckian of the Year luncheon benefits Covington Catholic High School’s financial assistance program. In 2016-17, 105 students were awarded $450,000 in financial aid. Covington Catholic and its alumni positively impact the Northern Kentucky community, and the luncheon provides a vehicle for the business community to support Covington Catholic’s tradition of excellence in education. Over the past 20 years there have been close to 7,600

people in attendance, and over $1 million has been raised. For reservations or to sponsor this event, visit Groneck www. covcath.org/ NKYL or call 859-448-2247, ext. 3. Groneck was born in 1950 to Joseph and Edith Groneck, as the 11th of 21 children. Dan has been married to his wife, Elaine, for 43 years. They have two sons, Jason and Matthew, both graduates of Covington Catholic High School. Dan and Elaine have four grandchildren. Groneck served as the Northern Kentucky President of U.S. Bank from August 2001 until December 2016. During his more than 49-year career in banking, Dan held several integral roles at U.S. Bank,

including vice president of residential lending, senior vice president and director of commercial real estate and senior vice president of corporate community development. Groneck served as advocate and senior management adviser for the Employee Mentor/Mentee Program and the Multicultural and Diversity program. Actively involved in the community, Groneck holds positions on several local boards, such as vice chair of St. Elizabeth Hospital Foundation, Diocese of Covington Finance Council, Catalytic Development Funding Corp. of Northern Kentucky, Square 1, Inc., the Faith Community Pharmacy, and NKY Education Council.

The St. Henry District High School drama department is preparing to present its spring musical “Grease! The School Version.” Join Rydell High’s senior class of 1959. As the school prepares for a visit from the National Bandstand competition, Danny and the new girl, Sandy, try to relive the romance of their “Summer Nights.” The school version of the original work was adapted by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey. The adaptation is more family friendly, but still contains all your favorite songs such as: “Greased Lightnin,” “Freddy, My Love,” “Beauty School Dropout” and “We Go Together.” Running eight years on Broadway and garnering two subsequent revivals along with having innumerable school and community productions, “Grease!” is among the world’s most popular musicals. The cast, along with Eileen Bird, Emily Himonidis and Michael Fay have been filling the hallways with song in preparation for their performances. Performances are 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 24, and Saturday, March 25, and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, March 26, in Millay Hall at St. Henry District High School.

NKY drug fight receives funding $275,000 in federal money to fill gaps

It’s time to treat your pelvic floor disorder

Terry DeMio tdemio@enquirer.com

The drug trafficking fight in Northern Kentucky just got a federal financial boost from Washington. Boone, Campbell and Kenton county officials said March 15 that the Office of National Drug Control Policy will provide $275,000 as part of the region’s inclusion in the Ohio High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area. That means a stronger fight against drug trafficking in Northern Kentucky. The region has been battered with heroin addiction for years, and has worked to diversify its fight against the relentless heroin and opioid epidemic. Last year, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell helped Northern Kentucky secure the designation. The federal funds will help fill gaps in funding for the Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force, said its director, Chris Conners. His investigators are seeing a surge in methamphetamine, or crystal meth, in the region even as they continue to fight against heroin trafficking. They’re seeing less heroin overall, with much of it mixed with the highly potent synthetic opioid fentanyl. Occasionally, the investigators have seized straight fentanyl or carfentanil. He cautioned that mixing the synthetics with heroin and other conventional opioids make them far more deadly. “These drug trafficking organizations aren’t wearing white coats and manufacturing their product in a laboratory,” Conners said. “They’re doing it ad hoc.” It’s clear to the agents, too, that even some of those selling the heroin don’t know whether it’s pure. “We had one case where the person we were

buying from said, ‘Be careful. I think there’s fentanyl in it,’ ” Conners said. Northern Kentucky, Greater Cincinnati and other communities around the country are experiencing surges in overdose deaths where fentanyl is included. Last fall, the region was inundated with overdoses that, in some cases, were fueled by the elephant opioid carfentanil. The Northern Kentucky Drug Strike force that includes Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties is expanding, Conners said. Now, Highland Heights, Fort Thomas, Erlanger and the Kentucky State Police take part. As part of the Ohio High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area, Conners said the region will gain new intelligence-sharing tools and be able to fund more officers and pay overtime costs that come with drug investigations. McConnell joined with Boone, Campbell and Kenton county officials in a prepared statement, saying they’re sure the trafficking area designation will enhance the region’s ability to fight the heroin epidemic. McConnell said the new funding is “critical” in protecting Northern Kentucky families. “By bolstering the good work of local officials and law enforcement, these funds will help to fight the devastation caused by opioid addiction,” he said.

Nearly 30 percent of women will suffer from conditions caused by deterioration of muscles, connective tissues, bone structures and ligaments in the pelvis at some point in their lifetime. Together, these are collectively known as the “pelvic floor,” and are critical to supporting organs such as the uterus and bladder. Yet as common as pelvic floor disorders are, many women do not seek treatment, suffering from needless discomfort and embarrassment. “A majority of women are not seeing doctors about these problems because they consider them a normal part of aging, they are embarrassed to talk about them or they believe that not much can be done to help,” says Dr. Aparna Shah, a Urogynecologist at The Christ Hospital Health Network. Pelvic floor disorders take many forms, many of them disruptive to everyday life. Common complaints include accidental bladder and bowel leakage, vaginal bulge and discomfort during sex. Vaginal dryness, itching and discharge could also be signs of a pelvic floor issue. Women who have delivered children vaginally or are post-menopausal are at highest risk for these disorders, but even younger women who have not given birth may suffer from pelvic floor related issues. “We want patients to understand that these disorders are very common. They are often treatable, so we want to encourage women to come and talk to us about them,” Dr. Shah says. “Women shouldn’t feel that they have to live with them.” Advanced treatment options and alternatives to surgery, some of which The Christ Hospital Pelvic Floor Center helped to develop, are making pelvic floor care easier. Many can now be performed as outpatient procedures without general anesthesia. For example, Botox injections can be used to relax the bladder. “Botox is highly effective for patients who suffer from urinary urgency, frequency and incontinence associated with urinary urgency,” Dr. Shah says.

Another relatively new non-surgical technique is MonaLisa Touch, an outpatient laser procedure used to treat women with vaginal atrophy, or symptoms that come from a lack of estrogen. “There are some women for whom vaginal estrogen therapy isn’t effective or who can’t use vaginal estrogen because of medical issues such as breast cancer,” Dr. Shah explains. MonaLisa Touch requires a series of three treatments performed about six weeks apart, often with an annual follow-up treatment. “It is very well tolerated. Our hospital was involved with the initial studies on that project, and we’ve seen around a 70 percent improvement rate for women.” In the last decade, the center has also had success treating overactive bladder, urgency and urgency incontinence with sacral neural modulation, or electronically stimulating bladder nerves to restore normal function. “The great thing about that procedure is it’s done in two phases,” Dr. Shah says. “The first stage is just a completely reversible test where the patient tries out a test wire for one to two weeks. If it works, then we can implant a small battery that provides constant neuro-stimulation.” Urogynecologic surgical options have also become less invasive. “Even some of our bigger surgeries are much less invasive now than they may have been 20 years ago,” Dr. Shah says. “With our minimally-invasive surgical approaches, we see less post-operative pain, less post-operative narcotic use and a quicker return to activities of daily living.” Dr. Shah says The Christ Hospital Pelvic Floor Center offers unique benefits over traditional treatment. “The Pelvic Floor Center is entirely devoted to multidisciplinary care for women with pelvic floor disorders. No matter what your pelvic floor disorder is, there is a specialist there who has significant expertise in it.”

Copy Olive Garden’s Pasta e Fagioli Like Olive Garden Pasta e Fagioli I’ve had several requests for this. As one reader said, “Adjust seasonings to taste. Very close to Olive Garden’s,” she noted.

THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Ricotta cheese can be made easily at home.

Have you ever tried making homemade cheese? Does the thought intimidate you? Well, today I’m taking you under my wing and showing you how to make one of the easiest cheeses of all: Ricotta. Ricotta means “twice/recooked.” Back in the day (and probably even now), the leftover hot whey from milk used for cheese making was recooked and the solid particles left after draining produced a very Rita soft spreadable cheese. Heikenfeld Since you probably don’t have any leftover whey RITA’S KITCHEN around (me, neither!) the recipe starts with whole milk and cream. I tried several and liked Ina Garten’s the best. Here’s my slight adaptation of her recipe. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator, Jungle Jim’s Eastgate culinary professional and author. Find her blog online at Abouteating.com. Email her at rita@com munitypress.com with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line.

Homemade ricotta cheese

1 to 1-1/4 pounds ground beef (Sirloin is good) 1 generous cup diced onion 1 generous cup julienned carrot 1 generous cup chopped celery 1 very generous teaspoon minced garlic 28 oz. can diced tomatoes 15 oz. red kidney beans, undrained 15 oz. Great Northern beans, undrained 15 oz. tomato sauce 12 oz. V-8 1 tablespoon white vinegar Salt and pepper to taste 1 teaspoon ea. dried oregano and basil 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme 1/2 pound ditalini pasta

Brown beef and drain off most of fat. Add onion, carrot, celery and garlic and sauté for 10 minutes. Add rest of ingredients, except pasta, and simmer 1 hour. About 50 minutes into simmering, cook pasta in boiling water just until it is al dente, or slightly tough. Drain. Add to soup. Simmer about 10 more minutes and serve. Serves 8.

You have to use whole milk and whipping/heavy cream in here. You won’t wind up with a huge amount of cheese, though. 4 cups whole milk 2 cups whipping/heavy cream 1 teaspoon sea or kosher salt 3 tablespoons good quality white wine vinegar

Set a large sieve over a deep bowl. Dampen 2 layers of cheesecloth with water and line the sieve with the cheesecloth. Pour the milk and cream into a stainless steel or enameled pot such as Le Creuset. Stir in the salt. Bring to a full boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Turn off the heat and stir in the vinegar. Allow the mixture to stand for 1 minute or until it curdles. It will separate into thick parts (the curds) and milky parts (the whey). Pour the mixture into the cheesecloth-lined sieve and allow it to drain into the bowl at room temperature for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally and discarding the liquid that collects in the bowl. The longer you let the mixture drain, the thicker the ricotta. (I let mine drain for a good hour, and then put it in the refrigerator to drain even more since I like a thicker ricotta). Transfer the ricotta to a bowl, discarding the cheesecloth and any remaining whey. Use immediately or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. The ricotta will keep refrigerated for 4 to 5 days.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen: For a step-by-step tutorial, check out my abouteating.com site.

Slow cooker Pasta e Fagioli like Olive Garden Janet, an Eastside reader, sent me this version. “Delicious and tastes just like Olive Garden’s,” she said. 2 lbs. lean ground beef 1 large onion, chopped 3 large carrots, chopped 4 stalks celery, chopped 28 oz. diced tomatoes, undrained 15 oz. can ea. red kidney beans, drained, Cannellini beans, drained 1 quart beef broth 1 tablespoon dried oregano Pepper to taste Fresh parsley, chopped to taste 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce (optional) 20 oz. jar favorite pasta/spaghetti sauce 8 oz. Ditalini pasta Parmesan cheese for garnish

Brown beef in a skillet. Drain fat and add to slow cooker with everything except pasta. Cook on low 7-8 hours or high 4-5 hours. Add pasta during last half hour on high or last 1 hour on low.

Bill designed to ‘let teachers teach’ Early mornings turned to late nights and spirited debate echoed through the House and Senate chambers as we closed in on the final days of the 2017 Legislative Session in Frankfort. A flurry of bills were sent to Gov. Matt Bevin’s desk last week, highlighted by measures to empower our Kentucky teachers and create better learning environments for our Kentucky students. One of our top priorities in the Senate this session was Senate Bill 1, which is designed to “let teachers teach” by mirroring the Federal “Every Student Succeeds Act” to foster state and local decision making by our valued educators. The House passed SB 1 unanimously this week with a few minor changes. The Senate plans to accept those changes and send SB 1 to Governor Bevin to be signed into law. Senate Bill 1 will bring sweeping changes to reform education in our Commonwealth, and we are confident those changes will improve our schools for many years to come. Another education bill that was sent to the governor’s desk

this week was House Bill (HB) 520, which authorizes the establishment of charter schools in KenDamon Thayer tucky. Passage of a charter COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST schools bill has COLUMNIST been a priority in the Senate for the past several sessions, and we were pleased to finally see its passage with help from our colleagues in the new House majority. With the passage of HB 520, Kentucky became the 44th state in the U.S. to pass a bill that permits school choice. None of the previous 43 states that have enacted charter school legislation have repealed it, which gives added confidence that this was the right move for Kentucky. In order for a charter school to be established, it first must be authorized by a local school board. Complementing the HB 520, we also sent HB 471 to Governor Bevin, which is the funding mechanism for charter

It’s about more than cookies Outside local stores, girls are participating in the largest girlled business in the world. They earn funds for their Girl Scout activities while learning five skills that will help them in business and in life. Goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics are all Lee Ann included in the Kramer big picture of the cookie sale. COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST When you COLUMNIST see a 5-year-old approaching someone, she is beginning to learn people skills. An 8-yearold, who is just learning basic math fundamentals, is beginning to also learn the value of a dollar. A 12-year-old, who works each Saturday morning for two months at a cookie booth, learns that reaching goals requires determination and motivation. At 16, a girl may be organizing the entire business of cookie selling for her troop including organizing booth sales, calculating profits, deciding how best to use the funds for the greater good of the troop. The girls will use the funds for troop meetings, to attend events, go on outdoor adventures, to learn leadership skills, and to provide service to others. There are 37 troops in the Alexandria, Cold Spring, Highland Heights service units. Thirteen troops recently reported the service projects their troops had participated in this school year. Look at this amazing list of service to our community, led by local girls ages 5–18: Cookies donated to Melbourne Fire House Blankets donated to the Campbell County Animal Shelter Participation in the Crayola Incentive Participation in Operation Gratitude – First Responder Care Kits Provided two weeks of fresh

fruit and desserts to the Henry Hosea House Cleaned trails at Campbell County Environmental Education Center Carols and donations for St Elizabeth Inpatient Hospice patients Donations to the Emergency Cold Shelter of NKY Donated more than 20 dozen homemade cookies for the Bread of Life Food Pantry Purchased flags for buildings in Cold Springs Made first aid kits for the Women’s Reset Mission Held an Olympics Event at Brookdale Assisted Living Organized a book drive for the Brighton Center Made comfort bags for the Alexandria Police Department Made new pet owner bags for SAAP Rang bell for Salvation Army Participated in Operation Cookie Share. Cookies go to the military, local domestic violence shelters, and local food banks Raised funds for Hurricane Matthew victims Raised funds for local girl with a brain tumor Donated books for Reiley Elementary Tutoring Program Donated and worked at the CARE Mission in Alexandria These projects were completed by Troops 3095, 2877, 1949, 1702, 7007, 7293, 7294, 1984, 368, 1601, 9281, 1701, and 7332. This year, the Girl Scouts of America is celebrating 100 years of Girl Scouts selling cookies. To mark this anniversary, the new S’mores cookie has been introduced. When you see a troop selling, stop, buy a box of cookies, donate a box, or give the troop a donation. Know that your money goes a long way to helping the girls and, thereby, our community.

schools. It is important to note that HB 471 has been crafted to support, not burden school district funding systems. Based on projected enrollment, a school district would send its request for funding to the Kentucky Department of Education. That district would include charter school enrollment figures as well. A “base” guarantee of funding that is sent to a school district would include adjustments for percentages of students who are at-risk, special education, limited English proficient, home/ hospital, plus transportation costs. The formula also requires local fair share by each school district based on taxable property there. We value our public schools, our teachers, and our students. It is important to realize that charter schools were not designed to take anything away from our existing system but to provide new opportunities for our students at struggling schools. Several other important bills moved quickly though the legislative process this week and were delivered to the gov-

ernor for his signature: » Senate Bill 75 updates the state’s outdated campaign contribution laws that have previously encouraged “dark money” and discouraged free speech; » Senate Bill 89 removes barriers in health care plans to allow patients to access smoking cessation treatments; » Senate Bill 91, also known as “Tim’s Law,” is aimed at helping families of those with severe mental illness ensure that individual receives proper outpatient treatment; » Senate Bill 120, comprehensive justice reform that also provides methods for reentry and employment access; » Senate Bill 136, which offers in-state tuition for all active members of the Kentucky National Guard whether or not they are official residents; » Senate Bill 159, requiring all public high school students to pass a civics test in order to receive a regular diploma; March 15 marked Day 28 of the 2017 Session of the Kentucky General Assembly. The Senate is adjourned until March 29 and this brief period

of time is known as the “veto period,” during which Governor Bevin can veto any legislation that comes to his desk. When we return on March 29, however, the General Assembly has the power to override the governor’s vetoes, as long as the legislation was passed before the beginning of the veto period. We will still likely pass a few more bills on March 29 and 30, so I encourage you to continue watching the movement of legislation. It is an honor to serve you in Frankfort, and I look forward to continue to work on your behalf in the General Assembly.

Road rage causes problems Incidents of screaming, rude gestures, and sometimes even violence are reported frequently on our roadways to the point where the behavior has earned the name of “road rage.” “Road rage” incidents occur as a result of an aggressive driver, usually because of impatience or anger, who intentionally tries to threaten, injure or even kill another driver because of a traffic dispute. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration statistics show that aggressive driving and road rage are causing serious problems on our roads. NHTSA estimates that twothirds of vehicle crash fatalities are due to aggressive driving and 37 percent of aggressive driving incidents involve a firearm. Even worse, 2 percent of drivers admit to trying to run an aggressive driver off the road or highway. Inappropriate, aggressive driving or “road rage” can result in accidents, serious physical injury or death to the driver or another party. There are numerous possible traffic and criminal charges associated with “road rage” which can include from a minimum of

reckless driving and following too close, up to reckless homicide and manslaughter. Possible penalties range Steven J. from a mere Franzen monetary fine to 10 years in COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST the penitentiaCOLUMNIST ry. Half of drivers who are on the receiving end of an aggressive driving behavior admit to responding with aggressive behavior themselves. We should all remember that everyone occasionally makes mistakes while driving. We probably all have at one time or another pulled out in front of another car that was closer than we thought or drove slower than the speed limit while day dreaming about something. We do not know what type of stress, pressure or other circumstances another driver may be experiencing that may result in what we consider inappropriate driving. That other driver could have serious medical problems, could have just lost a loved one, could be

thinking about an elderly parent or troubled child, etc. We all need to be more considerate of other drivers and not react with any form of “road rage.” Sometimes when another driver engages in a form of “road rage,” we are tempted to respond in kind by speeding up and not letting him pass or displaying an obscene gesture. That is certainly the wrong response. We should just ignore those types of drivers and not aggravate them more to where they really do something stupid such as intentionally cause an accident or pull a gun out. This may sound silly, but a good response may be to just think positive thoughts toward that other fellow so that his day gets better and he calms down before he causes an accident or before he gets home and takes it out on his family.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question What do you think of the American Health Care Act - the plan unveiled by GOP Congressional leaders March 6?

“Unfortunately, this weeks question has no good answer. I have yet to see any detail re ‘Trumpcare’ so it’s really impossible to like or dislike any features of the new health plan. Having administered employee medical plans for over 30 years, I can suggest that any fair comparison between ObamaCare and Trumpcare address the issues of 1) plan design (e.g. ‘what is covered, who is covered,’ etc.); 2) who will administer the plan; 3) how will plan participants access medical care providers; and 4) how will the plan be funded – who bears the cost and how are those

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION The legislature passed a bill encouraging school districts to wait until late August to start the school year. If Governor Bevin signs the bill, do you want your school board to delay the start of the school year? Why or why not? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via email.

monies to be collected? Obviously there are many more details that will need to be sorted out; but this comparison would be a good place to start. “All we have now to go on is a Republican stampede to honor the president’s promise to end ObamaCare; and the Democratic pushback to oppose anything the White House says or does. We need a real solution not a political solution. Political solutions to

serious problems are the perfect recipes for disaster. We can’t afford another one.” Michael Hauer

Heartbreaking loss in semis at Rupp Arena James Weber jweber@communitypress.com

LEXINGTON - With most of the fans at a packed Rupp Arena holding their breath, Jake Ohmer had one last chance to be a hero. The Scott senior guard drove from the wing and shot an offbalance bank shot from outside the paint. It missed, and the Eagles took a heartbreaking loss to Bowling Green on March 18 in the state semifinals. Bowling Green (35-2) won 8079 to advance to the championship game against Cooper. The Eagles finished 23-13 to end their first ever trip to the state semifinals. An upset-filled run that had most of the impartial hoops fans at Rupp rooting for them, a fact both head coaches said they noticed down the stretch. “Jake’s incredible,” Scott head coach Steve Fromeyer said. “He has left a legacy at Scott High School. It’s something he won’t forget. It’s something his family and his brother won’t forget. Fifteen years from now when they all have beer bellies at Thanksgiving and they’re playing with their kids, they’ll be talking about it. It’s something they all got to experience together.” Ohmer scored 33 points, going 11-of-24 from the floor and 4of-11 from 3-point range. He had eight rebounds and five assists. He scored 106 points in the tournament, tied for 13th all-time in the Sweet 16, which is celebrating its 100th rendition this week. The only two players to score more than that in the last 29 years — Mason County’s Chris Lofton (2004) and current UK player Dominique Hawkins of Madison Central (2013) — took four games to do so. In fact, all of the top 12 scorers in Sweet 16 history scored those points in four games, whether they reached the state final or played in a third-place game that used to be part of the tourney format. Only “King” Kelly Coleman, a well-known legend among Kentucky hoops fans, averaged more points in the tourney than Ohmer did this week (35.3). Coleman, of Wayland High School, scored 185 points (46.3 avg.) in four games in 1956. His team lost in the semifinals and won the thirdplace game. Clay County/UK legend Richie Farmer is second on the list with 137 points (34.3) for his team’s 1988 runner-up finish.

Troy McKinley remains the Northern Kentucky record holder, scoring 112 points (28 ppg.) in Simon Kenton’s run to the 1981 state championship. Ohmer’s 15 3-pointers for the tourney is now in a four-way tie for third all-time. The record is 17, set by Lofton in four games in 2003 during Mason County’s state title run. Everyone else in the top six reached the state final. Ohmer scored 46 percent of Scott’s 230 points in three games, third all-time. “He’s hard to contain,” said BG senior Terry Taylor. “He shoots it real good. He can also blow past you and create for other teammates. He showed tonight he’s one of the best scorers in the state of Kentucky.” In Scott’s last six games, starting with the 10th Region quarterfinals, Ohmer scored 210 points (35 ppg) and had 63 re-

bounds (10.5) to average a double-double. He shot 54 percent from the floor and hit 21 treys. He also hit 47 of 53 free throws while dishing out more than four assists per game. “You could have taken this (the printed box score) and burned it because he wouldn’t have cared, just to have that shot go in,” Fromeyer said. “The rest doesn’t matter. He had a great run. Incredible player, great kid.” Ohmer was the buzz of the tournament throughout the week. He went into the tourney having verbally committed to NAIA Cumberlands. On Monday, he announced on Twitter he had accepted an offer from Division I Western Kentucky of Conference USA. “This past week has been an exciting experience for me and a dream come true,” he wrote. Ohmer had five points in the fourth during a scintillating fourth quarter in which several Scott veterans took turns making plays. Scott trailed by eight entering the period. Scott closed to within five at 63-58 on a three by Perrin. A missed free throw and a turnover followed, then the Purples scored six in a row, all inside, and led 69-58. Scott trailed by seven, 70-63, with 4:13 to go. Jake Pusateri hit a three for his first points of the game. Junior Jake Pouncy hit two free throws, BG scored on a drive, and Jake Ohmer hit a three to make it a one-point game, 72-71, with 2:41 to go. Following two free throws by Zion Harmon, Dumlao tied the game with an and-one with 2:22 to play. Pusateri hit a free throw, and Dumlao scored a layup with a minute to play, capping a 24-13 run and giving Scott a threepoint lead. Harmon, Bowling Green’s precocious eighth-grade guard, drew a blocking foul on what many of the fans and observers felt was a charge. He hit two free throws. Jarius Key hit a tipin for BG, and Jake Pouncy hit two free throws to give Scott the lead back with 29 seconds to go, 79-78. BG gave the ball to Harmon, who immediately drove and banked in a floater with 21 seconds left. That set up the last sequence. “We wanted isolation on Jake in the post, and have him running off a screen,” Fromeyer said. “We kind of jumped it a bit

Here is a look at high school baseball teams in the county. Not all teams submitted preview information. Covington Latin: Joe Gray returns for his fifth year as head coach for the Trojans, who were 1-14 last year. Team strengths are pitching depth and outfield. Returning starters are plenty with Dylan Damico, River Carpenter, Micah Gray, John Tarvin, Jacob Langguth, Eli Tarvin, Toby Gray, Thomas Bowman, Matt Hehman and Efrain Perez. Damico, Carpenter and Micah Gray are pitchers who can play multiple positions when they’re not on the mound. Langguth is a junior outfielder and the leading hitter last year at .400. Latin hosts Augusta March 24 for its first home game. Dixie Heights: Chris Maxwell, the dean of Northern Kentucky coaches, returns after 35 seasons with a record of 667-337. He returns three starters in the field, in senior outfielder Cameron Barrett and junior infielders Andrew Daria and Chaz Gerding. Senior Wyatt Roe is the top returning pitcher. Senior outfielder Isaac Oelling is the top newcomer to watch. “With such a large turnover in talent and a losing record last year, the willingness of the new guys to listen and learn,” Maxwell said. Dixie was set to play at Holy Cross Friday, March 24, and noon at Bellevue Saturday. Dixie’s first home game is April 3 against Covington Catholic. Lloyd Memorial: New head coach Don Fuller welcomes four seniors in Alex Runion, Dylan Cardwell, Jesse Hatton and Logan McGue. Ludlow: Kevin Gray returns as head coach for the Panthers. He returns Thomas “T.C.” Eads, who is a four-year starter and the most versatile player. He is the top pitcher and plays multiple other positions. He is also a coach on the field for the inexperienced Panthers. Eads has college offers from Berea College and Salem (W.V.) International College. He is the fourth Panther in as many years to get college interest. Brent Clary return sat second baseman. He can also play third and outfield and is a leader on the team. “Obviously losing seven seniors last year makes us extremely young and inexperienced this year,” coach Gray said. “I love our kids’ work ethic and willing to listen and get better. They come to practice every day and work hard to improve. Our goal will be very simple this year. Improve each day, play hard every inning of every game, gain experience with our young

guys and hopefully be a much better team in May for district play.” Simon Kenton: The Pioneers were 27-12 last year for Troy Roberts, who enters the year with 299 career wins, 115 at Simon. The Pioneers were 32nd District champions last year and Eighth Region runner-up. He returns five starters. Trent Kincaid, a four-year starter at shortstop, hit .375 last year. Bailey Martin was 9-0 on the mound with a 1.17 ERA. Brayden Trattles was 6-2 with a 1.65 ERA. Brennen Baker hit .313 and Hunter Faehr .286. “This team has shown a ton of enthusiasm this winter and spring, which I think will lead to a lot of success,” Roberts said. “I think some of the guys still have a bad taste in their mouth form the loss in the regional championship last year. Hopefully they use this as motivation and it drives us to another successful season.” SK plays at Pleasure Ridge Park March 24 then hosts Highlands noon March 25. St. Henry: The Crusaders have a new head coach in Greg Pass, who inherits a team that went 21-11 last year and won the 34th District championship. He returns five starters in Will Brady, Nick Ferraro, Michael Schaffer, Jackson Haddle and Max Epplan. Brady, a three-year starter, hit .337 last year and was a junior all-star. He has verbally committed to Division II Tusculum College. “We have some experience coming back and a good core of young players ready to make a difference,” Pass said. Villa Madonna: Sam Molnar returns for his second year as head coach for VMA, who won nine games last year. He revived the program last year after the Blue Lightning couldn’t field a varsity team in 2015. Seniors pitcher/first baseman William Martin, junior pitcher/centerfielder Xavier Ludwig and senior catcher/shortstop Thomas Schutzman lead the way. Other returning starters are Colin Mclagan, Dan Gerst, Will Leverman and Zach Stringer. VMA is hoping for its first ever conference title. “We return a lot of talented guys capable of winning the conference,” Molnar said. “We played in a lot of close games last year, and won only the school’s second ever tourney game beating Lloyd 5-2. We have upperclassman and a senior class determined to go out on top. Two great lefty pitchers and a good supporting cast around them.” Beechwood was 32-8, 35th District champs and Ninth Region runner-up. The Tigers graduated six of their top players but have an experienced core. See PITCH, Page 2B

and he popped out, which was fine. We tried to get a ball screen to get him loose, but it was loud. He tried to make a play on his own and didn’t get it. He got a good look.” “Watching them play up here the last two games, we knew how good we were,” said BG coach D.G. Sherrill. “They have a lot of fight in them, they’re resilient. They put body blow upon body blow on us. They’re a fine club. You see why they won their region. They have great movement. They’re a really difficult team to prepare for in 24 hours.”

The Purples reigned supreme in the paint in the first half, getting 26 of their 39 points in the paint. Taylor, the Fourth Region Player of the Year, had 16 points and eight rebounds in the half. He shot 8 of 9 with every attempt near the goal, either a layup or a short jump hook. Taylor, an Austin Peay signee, is 6-foot-6 and averages 17 points and 12 boards a game. Meanwhile, Harmon and guard Kyran Jones were raining jumpers. Harmon, just an eighthgrader, had 10 points, including a pair of treys. Jones was 4 of 4 from the field.

St. Charles expands with Community Center For 56 years, the St. Charles Community has “Celebrated Life and Embraced Seniors.” The Covington campus on Farrell Drive is enhancing that legacy with the renovation of the original convent into a 4,000square-foot Community Center. The new Community Center, opened March 2017, comes on the heels of the construction of 18 new cottages in an area of the campus known as The Village. The new cottages welcomed their first residents in 2016. The Community Center provides residents access to a mul-

tipurpose facility designed to meet their social, health and wellness needs. Amenities include state-of-the-art exercise equipment and an open gathering room with a full kitchen. There is also a community resource center, as well as a card room and lounge area for residents’ use. A beautifully landscaped patio area, an outdoor deck, walking paths and upgraded outdoor lighting are other enhancements of the Community Center. The center’s features will benefit the entire campus. “The completion of

this project has been a goal of ours for a number of years,” St. Charles president/CEO Nichole Smith said. “St. Charles has brought community to seniors in a convenient, safe and friendly atmosphere.” The Community Center is another addition to the communal spaces on the campus. The Café’ on Charles Street, the Country Store & Coffee Shop, the Chapel, the Gazebo and the Charleston Room are among the many other quaint spaces nestled on the campus. “It is truly a blessing to watch St. Charles blos-

som into a vibrant community which allows those we serve the freedom to live fully,” Smith said. “We are thrilled to be able to add a large community space where residents and their guests can gather. We hope this center will serve as a base for connecting with others and as a hub for activity

on our campus for years to come.” “It was a wonderful surprise seeing all that the Community Center has to offer,” said Village resident Tessie McGee. “It is beautiful, offering so many new opportunities to complement our already wonderful experience at St. Charles. From

the fitness center to the gathering room to the open outdoor areas, I look forward to taking advantage of these many new enhancements.” For more information on St. Charles Community, its programs for seniors and the new Community Center, call 859-3313224.
