FORT WRIGHT – The Kenton County School District has officially started the search for a new superintendent. Earlier this month Superintendent Terri Cox-Cruey announced her retirement. In addition, inCox-Cruey terim deputy superintendent Tracey Mann announced her retirement and 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, she said. Neil Stiegelmeyer, a former superintendent for Kenton County Schools, will serve as interim superintendent for the district as of April 1. Kenton County Board of Education began its search with approval of an advertisement for the job at a special meeting March 29. They’re working on a tight time frame, according to Don Martin, Kentucky School Boards Association representative who’s serving as a consultant during the search. The job will be advertised until May 5. In the meantime, the board is putting together a screening committee made up of one school board member, two teachers, one classified staff member, one principal, and one parent. They will be voted on by their peers to serve on

NKY history organizations receive grants Melissa Reinert

Two Northern Kentucky history organizations have received grants to preserve local history from the Kentucky Historical Society. The Erlanger Historical Society received $355 to help them acquire archival supplies to better protect important artifacts on display in the Historic Depot Museum. The Boone County Public

Library received $500 to help preserve the Rabbit Hash Historical Society collection according to archival standards. The library took in the collection after the February 2016 fire that destroyed the National Register of Historic Places Rabbit Hash General Store. The materials include photos, Bibles, journals, scrapbooks, personal documents and other memorabilia related to the history of Rabbit Hash.

the committee. The committee will narrow down five to 10 candidates to present to the school board for review. Board member Jesica Jehn, who has served since 2013, will represent the board on the committee. The board still has to set criteria for the screening committee to consider. They’re looking to parents for input through an electronic survey. Board chairman Carl Wicklund said he wants the new superintendent to be a “futuristic thinker.” The school board hopes to name a new superintendent by June 9.



Child abuse victim: If you don’t talk, ‘you’ll die from the inside out’ Melissa Reinert

FLORENCE – The pain, shame and guilt that 6year-old Mike Pistorino felt as he was sexually abused by a neighbor stayed with him through his adult years. “I carried it with me,” he said. “I kept it deep, deep down in my belly. I didn’t deal with the pain. I didn’t tell. But, if you don’t talk about what happened to you, you’ll die from the inside out.” Dying he was. Pistorino found himself hooked on heroin, in jail and eventually homeless. Some-


thing changed. Finally, one day Pistorino opened up about his past. Now he’s 14 years heroin free and speaking out against child abuse. “I became the person I didn’t have,” said Pistorino, 43, of Chardon, Ohio. “Now I’m using what happened to me, this horrific thing, and using it to save other children from these monsters.” Pistorino shared his story at Family Nurturing Center’s 13th annual Blue Ribbon Ceremony. The ceremony is held to kick off Child Abuse Prevention Month during April. According to Tracy Fuchs, the center’s director of marketing and special events, the ceremony

has become one of the largest in the state to kick off month-long community awareness events and activities to promote not only awareness of the issue of child abuse and neglect, but to also educate adults on the role we all must play to protect children from abuse. “The lasting effects of child abuse as it pertains to drug addiction, lifelong health issues, poverty, academic success, employment and mental health struggles is unbelievable,” Fuchs said. “Family Nurturing Center promotes the Blue Ribbon Campaign to educate the public about the issue of child abuse in our region and the role that we all must take to prevent abuse from happening in the first place.” After the ceremony, hosted by Tom Gill Chevrolet in Florence, attendees hung blue ribbons on the fence that stands on the property near Interstate 75. Blue ribbons and pinwheels will be displayed throughout the region all of April to create

awareness. Host Tom Gill said he is honored to be a partner in the Blue Ribbon Ceremony. “This is a good cause,” he said. “We’re all God’s children. All children need and deserve the chance to grow and enjoy life and to prosper. No child should be held down by abuse. No child.” Gill said every adult has the responsibility to help prevent child abuse. “That’s why we’re a part of this,” he said. “It’s not just the Family Nurture Center that needs to raise awareness and stop child abuse, it’s leaders,

businesses, the community. Today we’re recognizing this as an issue and the need to care and protect our young ones.”

The Rabbit Hash General Store has come a long way from the smoldering shell it became after a

devastating electrical fire in February of last year. It’s unbelievable, said members of the Rabbit Hash Historical Society, that the process of rebuilding the store, built in

Society. “It’s like being in another part of the world or another culture when you’re here.” At the ribbon cutting on Saturday morning, gathered representatives from Rabbit Hash yelled out “April Fools, we’re not open!” as a joke. But Clare said it’s the farthest thing from a joke, and though the floors of the store don’t quite have the creaks and bouncy spots it used to, the store is finally open for business. Clare said he believes the store will be around for another 100 years for people to connect to the rich history of the past and take a step away from their busy lives. “The store is so important because it’s the centerpiece of this whole experience of Rabbit Hash. The store, besides being the collection area of people’s good and products when they came off the boats, it was the heartbeat of this community. It was the Facebook of the 1800s,” Clare said in an interview in February. Now that the store is open and a new mayor is in place, peace can finally settle back in the small town on the Ohio River, that is after the grand opening festivities are over.

Once you see the store filled with stuff and people and you see the vibrancy and the people smiling, all you feel is positive vibes. It’s like it was in the old days,” President of the Historical Society Don Clare said. The restoration process has taken a year, and while it may seem like forever for lovers of the small town, it was faster than anyone imagined. The process took community support -- from raising funds for the restoration process to tearing down buildings to provide period-era construction material to replace the burnt wood. And the community came out in droves for the grand opening, showing up with families and friends, taking pictures with Mayor Bynn and sharing memories from their first time in Rabbit Hash. “It’s in our nature as humans to try to be a part of something that is bigger than ourselves and history is so much of that,” said Mary Unterreiner of the Rabbit Hash Historical

Artist turns wallpaper into works of art Melissa Reinert

EDGEWOOD – Connie Berkemeier sees the big picture. As she sits in her quaint Edgewood home punching out tiny squares from upcycled wallpaper, she has a vision in her mind of the scene she’s going to create. The mixed media artist creates unique mosaic-like portraits with upcycled wallpaper. “I love being able to create,” she said as she glides glue on the back of a quarter-inch pink square. Today she’s working on a quilt-like piece.

“It takes time. But, I love the result. Sometimes, at first it’s hard to see but it all comes together.” Berkemeier, 67, a retired paralegal, started doing her artwork about six years ago. “I had always dabbled in art … needlework, scrapbooking, quilting,” she said. “My daughter told me one day, ‘Mom you need to pick something and find your niche.’” She tried working with scrapbook paper, but it was too thin. A friend of Berkemeier who worked in interior design suggested she try wallpaper. She was retiring and gave her

all of her old wallpaper books. “Some of my early work was awful,” she said. “But I kept at it and discovered a computer program that will turn your pictures into a quilting pattern.” Instead of using fabric, Berkemeier uses wallpaper. She starts by selecting coordinating colors. Using a scrapbooking square punch she squeezes out one-inch, half-inch, and quarterinch squares to create the picture. She’s created commanding mosaic portraits of Elizabeth Taylor and Jimi Hendrix. She

also makes quilt-like pieces and animal or object portraits. “I get a big thrill being able to produce something,” she said. “It’s nice too to know that people enjoy your work. I love when a piece goes to someone’s home and I know it’s something they will enjoy for years.” Friend and mentor Parrish Monk calls Berkemeier’s work “remarkable.” “The fact that Connie uses upcycled wallpaper and has the ability and vision to take small evenly cut squares and make them into larger pieces really speaks to her ability to see or foresee the bigger picture,” he said. According to Monk, Berkemeier is the only artists he knows of that utilizes upcycled wallpaper. “I have seen a similar

and Padded Underwear

According to Dr. Seipel, Leaking, Squirming, Squeezing, and Night Time Bathroom Trips...Even Accidents Can Now be a Thing of the Past! NEW YORK, NEW YORK — If life isn’t hard enough, now you have to worry about making it to the bathroom in time. The feeling of your bladder bursting and the down right panic of “not making it” in time can be absolutely overwhelming. Don’t even dare to laugh, cough or sneeze at the “wrong” time and when did you start to become scared to take a big sip of tea, coffee or water? You’re not alone in your battle to control your bladder. According to The National Institute of Health, as many as 33 million Americans are affected by bladder control issues described above.

feel like they belong.” Schoenenberger has worked to make strong partnerships with local web developers, tech companies and the maker community. She encouraged user groups to use the library and hosted Coder & Maker Club workshops on soldering, Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Python and physical computing. Through the use of Coursera MOOCs and help from tech mentors, she offered a complete 12week “Beginning Programming” course that evolved into a projectbased learning experiment. In addition, she has cultivated a relationship with Kenton County Public Schools. She has worked with school staff to develop a school media specialist and public librarian summit and idea exchange. As a result, the Library was able to provide more than 700 library cards to one school so that they may use the Library’s online resources to enhance their studies. Community partner Tiffany Vincent calls Schoenenberger the prototype for the 21st-century librarian. “She is thoroughly knowledgeable in all the new and up-and-coming technologies, but she’s also not afraid to suggest

cracking open a book to get the information you need. She’s at the center of the maker movement in Northern Kentucky,” she said. “One of her biggest skills is taking a room that ranges from absolute beginner to seasoned professional and making everyone feel like they’re both contributing to the class and learning. That’s a difficult line to walk when it comes to technology.” Also an exhibiting artist, Ann spearheaded an effort to create a pilot community makerspace, the FORGE, within the Hellmann Creative Center, part of the Center for Great Neighborhoods in Covington. This embedded Library project works to develop resources and services with the groups served by the Hellmann Creative Center, the Westside neighborhood and Covington artists, community groups, youth and residents seeking to build creative and technical skills. Through open and free access to digital library content, technology, instruction, mentoring and collaborative projects, the makerspace will increase economic, creative and employment opportunities and strengthen the educational pipeline for Covington’s emerging technology and arts corridors.

The Family Secret Even the Family Doesn’t Know “Most people who have overactive bladders choose to keep their problem a secret,” says Dr. Tracey Seipel, a longtime clinician who is one of the world’s leading experts in natural urological healthcare. “They don’t even tell their spouse or families about it. It affects their lives in every way, influencing where they go, and even what they will wear in case they have an accident.” “Black is the color of choice,” says Dr. Seipel, “as it can hide evidence of public accidents.” A 100% natural, drug-free aid developed by Dr. Seipel is now available in a remarkable, fast-acting natural formula called UriVarx™ featuring urox. This sophisticated patented herbal compound has been shown in clinical studies to help improve UriVarx™ with reductions in bladder frequency, nocturia (having to urinate at night), urgency, and bladder discomfort, sometimes in as little as two weeks.

COVINGTON - Ann Schoenenberger sits quietly in the FORGE, a community arts center in Covington where she’s creating an embedded library. Her dark curly hair bounces as she begins to softly speak. “We’re here in the Westside of Covington and we’re gearing our programs to our neighbors,” the Kenton County librarian said. “It’s a specific approach. We are making available modern 21stcentury tools to the public. That’s what libraries do. We help people grow and expand their knowledge.” From the simplest form of technology like a book to more complex tools like a 3D printer, Schoenenberger hopes to use the FORGE to “empower.” Schoenenberger just celebrated her 10th year at the Kenton County Public library where she serves as a digital librarian. The Lakeside Park resident oversees the library’s e-newsletter, the marketing segmentation program and chat services. Ann has also been using innovative technology to engage people who may not otherwise use the library. “Ann has a vision for the future that includes community building and creating community-focused STEAM based technology partnership,” said her supervisor Nicole Frilling, the library webmaster. “Ann found connections that allowed the library to reach out to new populations. She is driven to facilitate learning environments that empower, inspire and ultimately lead to happier, healthier and more economically successful individuals.” Schoenenberger was recently named a Mover & Shaker in the library industry by the national publication “Library Journal.” In March the Journal named 52 outstanding professionals committed to providing excellent service and shaping the future of libraries. She was selected for her commitment to the profession and innovation in working with the community. Schoenenberger is the second librarian from the Kenton County Public Library to be recognized as a Mover & Shaker. The STEM/STEAM movement, which focuses on science, technology, engineering, (arts), and math, has been steadily working its way through schools and libraries across the nation. From this movement, maker spaces have been developed. A maker space is a place where people of all ages can go to conduct hands-on activities and projects with a variety of traditional tools, such as a sewing machine, or by using more current digital technology such as a 3D printer. “It’s really about empowerment,” Schoenenberger said. “When you make things you feel empowered. That’s what we’re all about here. That and bringing people together. We want to engage people and make them

This reduces the frequent urge to urinate,” explains Dr. Seipel.

Dr. Seipel’s formula has made from the prestigious US Nutrition a believer out of 45-year-old, Business Journal for her work. Her patented formula consisting mother of three, Brandy W., from of select, synergistically paired Brisbane, Australia. “I had a high bladder frequency botanicals like Crateva nurvala, as a child,” says Brandy, “but my Equisetum arvense and Lindera frequency really worsened after aggregata, was 15 years in the making. the birth of my first child.” A friend who was aware of Reduce the Need Brandy’s condition told her about for Adult Diapers Dr. Seipel’s formula. “After two “Overactive bladder syndrome weeks, I had already noticed is a widespread problem,” says Dr. changes,” smiles Brandy.** Seipel. Many of these individuals “I was finding that although I wear adult diapers. felt I needed to urinate, I wasn’t as Insiders in the adult diaper desperate to run to the toilet. Now, industry are keeping a close eye when I get up in the morning,” on Dr. Seipel’s bladder support she adds, “I’m able to make the breakthrough because of people coffee and even have a cup before like 78-year-old retired teacher, needing to go, which is a great Glenda B. from Gold Coast, improvement!” Australia.

So, says Dr. Seipel. “UriVarx™ promotes normal I wore them every day,” confesses urinary frequency, and reduces Glenda.

Since Glenda discovered Dr. Seipel’s UriVarx™ formula, you won’t find her shopping in the adult diaper section of the store anymore. “After only 10 days on UriVarx™, I reduced the need to wear my diapers. Now, I am managing very well, thank you,” says Glenda. According to Euromonitor International, a respected market research firm, the size of the adult diaper market in the U.S. was approximately $1.4 Billion in 2012.

Prostate or Bladder? Hard to Tell Many men confuse the symptoms of overactive bladder syndrome with prostate woes. Dr. Seipel explains, “Prostate enlargement restricts urine flow. The bladder compensates for this by trying harder and harder to push the urine out.” As bladder pressure increases, so does instances of urinary frequency and urgency. Long after a man’s prostate woes are relieved, he may still experience the same symptoms thanks to his now-overactive bladder.

His-and-Her Results “Because male and female bladders, other than size, are identical,” says Dr. Seipel, “the formula works equally well for both men and women”. “It’s a his-and-her formula,” she smiles. David M., age 46, can attest to this. “I was having to go to the toilet every hour or so and I had to go to the toilet at least four times per night.” Four weeks after starting UriVarx™, David says, “My trips to the toilet have definitely reduced and I’m having much better sleep, getting up maybe once a night.” If you’re ready to alleviate your go-now urination urges, to those frantic trips to the bathroom, and if you are looking for the confidence and security that a healthy bladder can bring to your life, here’s your risk-free opportunity.

St. Joseph School students buy park benches with recycling profits Students at St. Joseph School are making an impact in their community by reducing waste. As a school community, they collected and recycled more than 480 pounds of lids and caps. They worked as a team and had the support of their family and friends as well as the St. Joe’s PTO. The profits earned from

the lid recycling effort generated enough money to buy two blue park benches, which will reside at the school near the gymnasium doors. “Thanks to everyone who helped us succeed in this recycling project,” first-grade teacher Janet Schmidt said. “We invite all of our students and guests to enjoy our new benches.”

Exodus from Covington City Hall highlights political divide Scott Wartman

Covington’s new mayor promised change. It didn’t take long. Not many familiar faces remain in Covington City Hall four months into Mayor Joe Meyer’s tenure. High-profile resignations by staff followed Meyer’s November victory and has the city looking nationwide to Meyer fill an increasing number of vacant positions. Do the vacancies signal problems at City Hall? Meyer said this is all normal for a transition. The city is doing fine. “Whenever there is a turnover in administration in an election, the norm is a fairly significant personnel turnover,” Meyer said. “This is to be expected.” Critics, however, fear the resignations reflect poorly on the city. They blame the new mayor’s confrontational style. A feud with City Manager Larry Klein led to his resignation in February. Development manager Donny Warner left on the same day in February. Then there was the weird case of Kyle Ryan. The city commission in December voted to hire Ryan as an assistant engineer. He thanked the commission at the Dec. 20 meeting for the opportunity. A few days later, he opted not to take the job. Ryan declined comment when asked by The Enquirer why he didn’t take the job. “It would almost be nice to have cameras in City Hall to see what City Hall is like,” said David Mathews, the former assistant finance director. “It is hos-

tile in there. People are tense and afraid.” Mathews and senior accounting manager Robert Hagedorn quit together on March 6, a day some in City Hall refer to as Black Monday. Mathews described an environment where the mayor would insinuate wrongdoing among staff and make them fear for their jobs. Mathews took exception at the mayor calling an audit a “forensic audit” implying the financial department did something illegal. Meyer’s personality contrasts with the more affable one of his predecessor, Sherry Carran, Mathews said. “You say ‘Hi’ to him, and he stares at you, like he’s seen a ghost,” Mathews said. The mayor, however, described his managerial style as direct. “Actually, a lot of people find my direct style is comforting and reassuring,” Meyer said.

A tale of two City Halls For Meyer’s supporters, it’s sour grapes by his opponents that has caused the dissension at City Hall. Former City Commissioner Steve Frank blamed former city manager Larry Klein for giving the impression Meyer wanted to get rid of people. “The well was poisoned,” Frank said. Former City Commissioner Chuck Eilerman, who backed Sherry Carran, fired blame back at Meyer’s bullying tactics, saying the sheer number of people who have left is proof. “It is unprecedented,” Eilerman said. “Can you imagine what would happen in Cincinnati if the city manager, finance department and development department left at once?” It’s hard to determine what goes on behind closed doors.

meantime, Moller will guide the city through assembling the budget for the next fiscal year.

Fallout unclear


Covington skyline.

Many former employees are reluctant to speak. Klein, the excity manager, said he couldn’t speak until after June due to contractual obligations with his severance. Former Finance Director Lisa Desmarais, when asked about why she left in December, deflected questions about whether the current administration had anything to do it. She wouldn’t say yes or no. She praised Klein, the previous city manager. “I have a wonderful opportunity in the county, and quite frankly, I was attracted to the position because of the new county building in the works,” Desmarais said. What is clear, Meyer in public has taken a much more authoritative role than previous mayors. In his first meeting in January, he wrested control from the city manager on making the agenda for commission meetings. No longer does the city manager assemble the agenda. The City Commission instead votes on agenda items at a caucus meeting. He’s also changed how meetings are run, favoring a style akin to the Kentucky General Assembly where Meyer served from 1982 to 1996, first in the House then in the Senate. Any-

one who speaks at commission meetings – commissioners and public – address the chairman, who is the mayor. And items voted on a consent calendar at caucus meetings are voted on in a block to save time.

City of Covington now hiring Regardless of who is to blame, the city is hiring. The city on Tuesday contracted with Arizona-based firm Municipal Solutions for $29,000 to recruit across the country for a replacement city manager. The city appointed local attorney Loren VanDyke Wolff as interim manager at a cost of $11,000 a month. The city will have a permanent replacement in three months if all goes according to plan, Wolff told the Covington City Commission this week. The city on Tuesday also hired Cincinnati government finance veteran Bill Moller as interim finance director, also at $11,000 a month. Moller had worked for 30 years for the City of Cincinnati in various positions, such as assistant finance director, finance director and assistant city manager. The city doesn’t have a timetable on when to replace Desmarais permanently. In the


Do the vacancies matter? That depends on whom you ask. Meyer said they’ve managed to fill the gaps in the interim. Economic development agencies Southbank Partners and Catalytic Fund are filling in for the vacant development director, free of any additional charge, city officials said. The new interim finance director provides more than 30 years of experience in Cincinnati city government and should not have a problem putting together Covington’s $47 million a year budget. “We have working for us one of the most qualified people who has ever served in the city of Covington,” Meyer said. “That job is very well filled.” Others aren’t so sure. The assistant finance position, now vacant, was created in the wake of the Bob Due scandal. It’s meant to provide a check and balance on the finance director to cosign the checks and make sure the money is going where it should. The previous assistant finance director who left in March said the job performs a crucial role. “There’s not a whole lot of people to do segregation of duties,” Mathews said. “You don’t have checks and balances.” In the end, the city will move forward, Meyer supporters said. “We’re all replaceable,” Frank said. “If I got hit by a car tomorrow, someone will replace me. You can’t believe the salaries, pension benefits these (city) jobs have. There will be quality people lined up out the door looking for them. I’m not worried that these folks can’t be replaced.”



State urges work zone awareness Focusing on the human aspect surrounding highway work zone safety, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet launched its state work zone safety campaign this week in conjunction with National Work Zone Awareness Week, April 3-7. The 2017 national theme – Work Zone Safety Is In Your Hands – reinforces the message that work zone safety is a shared responsibility for work crew members and motorists. “Kentucky transportation road crews risk their lives daily to build and maintain bridges and roads across the Commonwealth so that we all can connect with people and places that are important to us,” said Gov. Matt Bevin. “As a young man, I worked for a state highway department and know about the dangers presented to men and women doing their jobs in highway work zones. These public servants are fathers, husbands, brothers, daughters and friends. Let’s all do our part to take precautions to make sure these highway workers – real people with real lives – get home safely each night.” With roadway construction season kicking off in April across Kentucky, many motorists will encounter at least one work zone in their daily commute. Although highway work zones are highrisk sites for crew members, the lives of drivers and their passengers are also on the line in a work zone. In fact, Federal Highway Administration statistics indicate that motorists, not workers, are more at risk in a work zone. In a typical five-day work week, an average of seven motorists and one worker are killed around the nation in work zones. To help spread awareness, Bevin signed a proclamation declaring April Work Zone Safety Month in Kentucky.

“When he died, a piece of me died also – a void that you can’t replace,” wrote Tonya Ashby about her brother Kendale T. Ashby, who was hit by a car in 2014 while working in an active highway work zone. Kendale Ashby was a father of four, a husband, a brother and a best friend. “The Cabinet is grateful for public support in the form of personal stories and pledges from public and private partners to ‘Glow Orange’ to promote work zone awareness,” said KYTC Secretary Greg Thomas. “The safety of our road crews and of motorists in work zones is in each of our hands.”

Orange hues in the Bluegrass Another element of KYTC’s 2017 work zone awareness campaign is “Glow Orange, Kentucky” week, an initiative inspired by the national “Go Orange Day,” which also promotes work zone awareness. KYTC has invited organizations and citizens throughout the Commonwealth to illuminate buildings, landmarks, bridges, structures and homes with the color orange to show support during the week of April 3-7. The Cabinet encourages the public to submit “Glow Orange, Kentucky” safety selfies taken in front of illuminated structures to Facebook and Twitter using #glowky. Businesses and agencies that have pledged to “Glow Orange” are featured on KYTC’s social media pages.

Lives in your hands For the protection of all lives in work zones, KYTC asks drivers to practice 10 work zone safety tips: 1. Pay attention – put away the phone. 2. Respect the posted speed limits – even if workers do not appear to be present. 3. Don’t tailgate. 4. Keep a safe distance from workers and equipment. 5. Expect the unexpected. 6. Obey road crew flaggers. 7. Allow extra time to get to your destination if traveling through a work zone. 8. Keep up with traffic flow. 9. Before leaving home or work, check out or use the free WAZE app for traffic information. 10. Be patient and remain calm. Construction crews are working to make the roads better for you.

Real stories, real people Last year, there were 674 work zone related crashes, 143 injuries and 10 fatalities in Kentucky. To increase awareness of work zone safety and the lives affected by preventable accidents, KYTC asked the public to support this year’s campaign through sharing work zone stories. Retellings of near misses while working, losing loved ones in work zones and observations of negligent driving behavior were featured in several submissions. Each story stressed the risk of working in a work zone and the lives at stake.

By request: Make-ahead coffeecake and brisket Today I’m sharing two recipes that have earned Hall of Fame status. The coffeecake is a generational favorite. I get requests for it every year. The brisket is perfect for Passover Rita (but so deliHeikenfeld cious anytime). Plus RITA’S KITCHEN both recipes are very easy and can be made ahead. What’s not to love about that? Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator, Jungle Jim’s Eastgate culinary professional and author. Find her blog online at Email her at rita@com with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line.

Hall of Fame beef brisket The ingredients are common ones, the technique a bit different. When I made this on the Fox 19 morning show, it turned out to be the most popular beef brisket recipe ever. You can make it a couple of days ahead. That’s why it’s in my recipe hall of fame! Ingredients 1 brisket, trimmed of most, but not all, fat - up to 3 pounds 12 oz. chili sauce (not seafood sauce) 1 pouch dry onion soup mix 12 oz. regular Coke


The recipe for this coffeecake has stood the test of time.

Ruth Lyons’ coffeecake No kidding, this iconic coffeecake has made the rounds for decades. But you know what? It has stood the test of time for sure, yet it’s not a fancy coffeecake at all. Great for a beginner baker. Here’s my version. It can be made a day ahead. Ingredients 1 cup sugar 1 cup packed brown sugar - I used light brown 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon each nutmeg and salt 1-1/2 to two teaspoons cinnamon 3/4 cup canola or other vegetable oil (not olive oil) 1 teaspoon clear vinegar 1 cup milk 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla 1 large egg, lightly beaten 1 teaspoon baking soda

Instructions Preheat oven to 350. Mix sugars, flour, nutmeg, salt and cinnamon together. Add oil and stir until crumbly. Reserve and set aside 3/4 cup for topping. Add vinegar to milk and let sit a minute. Whisk in vanilla and egg to milk mixture. Then blend milk mixture in with remaining sugar/flour mixture. Blend in baking soda. Pour into a sprayed 13-by-9 pan. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup topping. Bake 30 minutes.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen Why add vinegar to milk? The reason the vinegar is added to the milk is to make it a bit like buttermilk or, as they used to say, “sour” milk.

Instructions Preheat oven to 350. Place brisket in sprayed heavy pot that is ovenproof with a lid. Mix sauce, soup and coke and pour over brisket. Roast, covered, for one hour. Turn temperature down to 250 (this is important for a tender roast) and roast, covered, four to five hours. Four hours gives a very tender roast that can be sliced fairly easily. Five hours produces a meltingly tender, fall apart roast. Skim fat off top and slice meat against grain (so it won’t be stringy) and serve with gravy. Or put in refrigerator after cooling a bit. Fat will congeal to the top and you can simply lift it off. Reheat roast and gravy on top of stove, covered, over medium low heat, slice, serve with gravy and enjoy! Larger roast? Double gravy ingredients. To make in crockpot I have not made it in a crockpot but Rob Williams, Fox 19 anchor, wanted to use a crockpot and asked my advice. I told him four to five hours on high. Rob cut the roast up in very large pieces and he said it turned out perfect. “My go-to way to make brisket,” he said.

COMMUNITY Editor: Nancy Daly,, 578-1059



Unknown industrial development causes dispute Dozens of cities in Northern Kentucky largely get along with each other. But when an industrial development is proposed along a border, that can start a fight. That’s what’s happened with Covington and Fort Wright when the son of a Fort Wright City Council member applied for a zone change along the border. Exactly what developer Kent Wessels wants to put on the 6acre property off Howard Litzler Drive in Fort Wright isn’t clear. But the Fort Wright City Council will vote April 5 on whether to change the zoning from residential to light industrial. Wessel’s father, City Councilman Bernie Wessels, has recused himself from the vote. For the residents in Covington’s Latonia neighborhood, they fear trucks and commerce will disrupt their quiet home. The property currently has a small apartment complex surrounded by a small woods. “I just think this whole thing stinks, but whether it’s ethics or good ole boys, think what you want, it’s what you can prove,” said Covington City Commissioner Bill Wells. “This development is not in their backyard, it is in our back-

yard.” The proposed building on the site, a 40,000-squarefoot warehouse, would put loading Scott docks next to Wartman the yard of Casey Bray. Bray COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST lives on 33rd COLUMNIST Street in Latonia. “If they want to do that 12 o’clock in the afternoon, more power to them; at three or four o’clock in the morning when I get up for work, not so much,” Bray said. The developer also concerns the residents. Even though the developer’s father won’t vote on the zone change, opponents of the development don’t like the connection. “To me right there that’s ared flag,” Bray said. The Kenton County Planning Commission recommended against the zone change. The proposed plan doesn’t have enough of a buffer between the industrial area and the residential area, according to a staff report from Planning and Development Services, which pro-

vides zoning administration of Kenton County, Covington and Fort Wright. PDS staff recommended against the zone change, writing in the report an industrial zoning would go against the county’s comprehensive plan. Covington residents at a recent public meeting vowed to pack the Fort Wright City Council Chambers on April 5. Fort Wright City Administrator Ed Butler said there’s nothing unusual about a city voting on whether to accept the planning commission’s recommendation or reject it. “All we are doing right now is reviewing the area planning commission’s decision,” Butler said.

Gateway to sell property, but won’t disclose buyer Someone will get to use the panoramic views of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky on a hillside in Park Hills and Covington. But who it will be hasn’t been released to the public. Gateway Community and Technical College announced the state approved the college accepting a $3.2 million offer for its 25-acre former campus on a hillside overlooking Covington.

The Kentucky Community and Technical College System last year rejected five bids ranging from $1.5 million to $3 million as not fair market value. Developers had told The Enquirer they wanted to build anywhere from 45 single-family homes to 250 apartments on the site along Amsterdam Road. The KCTCS determined $3.2 million as fair market value, according to a release by Gateway. Gateway spokeswoman Michelle Sjogren said they won’t release the identity of the buyer until they get the buyer’s permission.

Goats will run again in Covington The goats will run again in Covington, but this time hopefully not all over Covington. Farmer Gus Wolf will bring back his goats to Goebel Park and, like last year, have the Running of the Goats on April 23. Last year, the goats decided to tour the city before going to the park. Several goats jumped a barrier and ran loose for a day around Covington before they were rounded up. Wolf said this year they’ll have precautions to prevent another breakout, but didn’t want

to reveal them until the day of the event. “I want people to come to the event and experience it for themselves,” Wolf said. “I don’t anticipate any escapees.” Once the goats were located, they provided both an environmentally friendly way to keep weeds in Goebel Park down and promote the business district, he said. “From the homeless to the hipsters, everyone seems to like these goats,” Wolf said. “It just seems to add to the positive energy in the community.” Wolf will have between five and 10 goats, which will be moved around Goebel Park in a pen where they’ll eat the vegetation. There’s a little bit of everything in Northern Kentucky. Farmlands in the south give way to urban centers in the north along the Ohio River. More than 300,000 people live in the three counties and 35 cities. This is a space for some of the news and issues that might otherwise go unnoticed.

KET is dedicated Ideal town Hygeia was planned for NKY to lifelong learning In recent days it’s been reported that funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting has been eliminated in the president’s proposed federal budget. We are deeply concerned as this funding supports educational programming and services in communities nationwide, and is vital to KET and all public broadcasting stations. KET receives approximately $3.4 million annually from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which is about $0.78 per Kentuckian. An independent study by Booz & Company concluded that federal funding is essential to maintaining public broadcasting in the United States. The elimination of federal funding would diminish and ultimately destroy public broadcasting. Education has been at the heart of KET’s mission for nearly 50 years. We understand that an educated workforce is a key component to Kentucky’s economic success and viability. KET is one of the largest public broadcasting networks in the nation and is used by more than 1 million people each week. We overcome geographic and economic barriers by reaching all regions of the state through free overthe-air broadcast. We’re a trusted resource. Kentuckians know and love KET programs that explore public affairs, history, science, nature and the arts. Students and teachers depend on KET for high-quality instructional tools and professional development. KET and PBS KIDS deliver safe, educational, commercial-free programming. We help children prepare for kindergarten with pre-literacy, math and critical-thinking skills. KET is the only highquality early childhood education resource accessible to every Kentuckian, including our most vulnerable children in urban and rural areas

throughout the state. This is especially critical for those not in any formal preschool environment.

The first time William Bullock saw Cincinnati, he recognized its potential. In 1827, the city was up and coming with a reputation for culture, manufacturing and opportunities. So Bullock decided to build an ideal town across the river in Northern Kentucky. It was to be called Hygeia after the Greek goddess of health. The idea wasn’t so farfetched. Utopian communities and planned towns were springing up all over. And Bullock was no stranger to big ideas. The Englishman had built the famous Egyptian Hall in London’s Piccadilly Circus, a museum in the style of ancient Egypt to house his collection of art and curiosities. En route from Mexico to England, Bullock had stopped in Cincinnati in April 1827 and was impressed by what he found. He praised the landscape, the wildlife and the quality of fresh meats and vegetables – not to mention the prices. “For the industrious peasant, artisan, manufacturer … no situation I had seen, embraced so many advantages for a place of residence, as this rising and prosperous little city,” Bullock wrote in “Sketch of a Journey Through the Western States of North America.”

He decided to make Cincinnati his “permanent abode.” Bullock became infatuated with Elmwood Hall, the Jeff stately manSuess sion of Thomas D. Carneal COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST across the river COLUMNIST in what is now Ludlow, and purchased the 1,000-acre estate. He envisioned creating a town as a refuge for his fellow countrymen. “It appeared to me, that a finer site for building a small town of retirement, in the vicinity of a populous manufacturing city, could scarcely exist,” Bullock wrote. On his return to England to retrieve his family, Bullock enlisted John Buonarotti Papworth, the self-described “architect to the King of Wirtemburg,” to draw up plans for Hygeia. Boulevards and town squares emanated like spokes of a wheel from the center fountain. There was a library, museum, town hall, horticultural and agricultural gardens, a market, churches, inns and a cemetery. Bullock included the plans in

his book, along with a reprint of “Cincinnati in 1826” and an invitation to join him in Hygeia. No one else came. The offer wasn’t enough to entice folks to emigrate halfway around the world. Was Hygeia more fantasy than reality? “The street pattern appears more as an abstract design than a functional system,” John William Reps wrote of Hygeia in “The Making of Urban America: A History of City Planning in the United States.” “The four diagonals lead from the outer corners of the small squares to nowhere, and, with no real point of architectural interest at either end, these streets are largely meaningless.” Bullock sold the estate in 1830 to Israel Ludlow, son of one of Cincinnati’s founders, and returned to England. Elmwood Hall is now a private residence at 244-246 Forrest Ave. Bullock did inspire one of his guests. In October 1829, Englishwoman Frances Trollope opened Trollope’s Bazaar, an audacious marketplace in Moorish and Egyptian style with a coffeehouse and art gallery on Third Street in Cincinnati. Folks weren’t ready for that yet, either, and it closed after five months.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question: How many tattoos are too many?


“I personally do not have any but I have friends that are covered. I do not feel there is a number to really be put on that subject other than, I would keep away from neck and face for professional reasons, personally. But as my close friend says, Your body is a temple, decorate it!”

What can be done to prevent, or make less likely, incidents like the mass shooting at Cameo Club in Cincinnati last month? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via email. Send your answers to with Ch@troom in the subject line.



Leroy Turner is having all the tattoos on his hands, face and neck removed to help his chances of finding employment. Turner said overcoming a background check without tattoos is hard enough.

“All in the eye of the beholder.”

“Tattooed people are stereotyped almost as bad as anything else. A lot of people covered in tattoos are just as/if not more professional than those that do not have tattoos.”

“Depends on who you are one may be too many for someone. 40 may not be enough for someone.”

Local athletes right on track James Weber and Gannett News Service


Dixie Heights assistant coach Roddy Stainforth gets the Colonels pumped up against Lakota West in 2012. Stainforth was filling in for an ailing head coach Ken Chevalier.

Dixie looks to alum for basketball future James Weber

He’s been coaching basketball long enough that he’s heard all the questions why he hasn’t been a head coach. Now those have been answered for Roger “Roddy” Stainforth after he was named head boys basketball coach at Dixie Heights this week. Stainforth, a 1998 Dixie graduate and former basketball player there, had been on the staff at the program for 13 years under Ken Chevalier, who stepped down after this season. “It’s exciting,” he said. “I’m a Dixie grad. I’ve coached sixth grade, seventh grade, JV, varsity assistant. I get to take over the program where I graduated from, and not everybody gets that opportunity.” Stainforth worked with Chevalier for the past 13 years, when he compiled a record of 251-143, including the Ninth Region title in 2011. Dixie was 26-7 this past season and graduates six seniors who made up the bulk of the rotation. “Roger has been an integral part of the success of the program and we look forward to

him continuing helping our student-athletes reach their full potential on and off the court,” said Dixie athletic director Matt Wilhoite in a release. Chevalier praised the hire on his Twitter account Monday night. Stainforth has led the basketball squad before when Chevalier was out for medical reasons, including several games in the 2011-12 season. “People have asked me, ‘You’ve been doing it so long why didn’t you apply to be a head coach?’” Stainforth said. “Being head coach was never important to me. Coaching at Dixie Heights was important to me. I love coaching and I love coaching at Dixie Heights, and that’s the most important to me.” Stainforth has been a head coach at Dixie, just beginning his eighth season in charge of the softball program, which will be his focus now. His top hoops assistant Chad Fields, also a 1998 grad, will handle the offseason workouts in hoops this spring. “It’s been hectic,” Stainforth said. “When I took the job I had already made the commitment to the softball girls. I told them I’m all in with the softball program. We’re getting our offsea-

son program scheduled: Getting the kids in the weight room. We’ll work on our bodies this time of year, then we’ll transition to basketball skills in the summer.” One of Stainforth’s tasks is being part of the annual Strike Out Cancer softball event, which will have its sixth edition Saturday at Notre Dame Academy. The event, which Stainforth helped start, involved a roundrobin triple-header with Dixie, Notre Dame and St. Henry April 1. Strike Out Cancer began in 2010 as a special event for the girls to raise money for breast cancer awareness. Money raised was donated to the American Cancer Society. In 2014, the SOC Committee made the decision to focus on pediatric cancer. The SOC Committee made a connection with the Dragonfly Foundation, which supports children and families stricken with cancer. “It’s an awesome event,” Stainforth said. “We partnered with Dragonfly Foundation and raised $3,000 last year. We’ll have kids throw out first pitches. It’s a great way to get the kids involved with something.”

NKY teams are right on target in archery meets James Weber

Archery, like golf, is an individual sport. And while archery doesn’t allow spectators to call in and make scoring decisions, it does have the same element of each player controlling their own fate with no opponents working against them. Instead of the player versus a course, it’s a player aiming at a target.

Ryle head coach Brenda Klaas compares archery to golf in how a player prepares for each shot mentally and with their physical techniques. “I see T-shirt slogans where it’s 90 percent mental,” Klaas said. “That’s about right, it’s a lot like golf. Your mental game is a big part of it. If you let one shot get in your head, you’re done. You have to put it out of your head.”

Simon Kenton won the KHSAA Region 6 tournament last month with a 3,345. The Pioneers will advance to the KHSAA state tournament April 20 in Lexington. Simon Kenton had the top two individuals. Holly Snow shot a 296, four away from a perfect 300, and Paige Robbins shot 293. SK’s lowest total to count in the See ARCHERY, Page 2B

Healthy patients. Happy fans. Game-changing care.

Here is a look at local high school track and field programs based on preview questionnaires and information. Look for continuing results and pictures of meets in the Short Hops column and on Beechwood has a new head coach in David Meyers, who coached at Newport Central Catholic for the previous 12 years. His top boys athletes are Dalton Everett, Aiden Justice, James Davis, Keaton Downey and Noah Howard. Everett was fifth at state in the 110 hurdles and 10th in the 300 hurdles. Justice was 11th in the state in the long jump and is a team leader in the sprints and relays along with Davis. Downey is the team’s top distance runner and Howard is also strong in the jumps. The top girls are Haley Holbrook, Caroline Schilling, Maria Schilling, Merrin Woods and Jackie Tierney. Holbrook was third at state in both the 1,600 and 3,200. The Schillings and Woods lead the sprint crew, with Caroline qualifying for state in the 100 last year. Tierney runs the mid-distance and distance. “I am most proud of the willingness to try new events,” Meyers said. “Athletes who only ran in years past are learning other events such as hurdles and field in hopes of making the team well-rounded.” Dixie Heights boys are led by veteran coach Steve Saunders, who has been at the post for three decades. His top returners are senior Cameron Barrett (sprints), senior Jake Pfaller (hurdles/sprints), senior Jose Torres (sprints), senior Andrew Perry (distance) and senior Giante Hicks (throws). Other veterans are Mitchell Moore (triple jump), Cody Finnell (shot/discus), Brent Eggers (high jump), Jacob Baehner (pole vault), Alex Buckshire (pole vault), Alex Sanchez (distance), Nick Brown (sprints). “They are a good mix of veteran track athletes and younger athletes,” Saunders said. “Our freshmen class is very strong with several athletes that will contribute to the varsity squad. Our returning varsity athletes are solid,

but how well we perform as a team will depend upon how well our younger athletes develop over the course of the season.” Villa Madonna is coached by Joe Cordonnier, who returns for his 16th year. Distance runners Zack Werner and John Komaromy-Hiller return after top-10 finishes at state last year. Nick Britton is a jumper converting to hurdles. Maddie Dickman and Maddie Schenthal lead the girls team. Dickman is a distance runner who has made state since seventh grade. Schenthal, a rookie last year, made state in hurdles, sprints and jumps. VMA has a pole vaulter this year with senior Connor Collins. “This year we have some great returning seniors who have invested heavily into our program,” Cordonnier said. “Even though many of our returners are starting the season hurt from basketball we are hopeful that they will make full recoveries by the end of the season. “ Holy Cross Derrick Barnes won the 1A regional championship in the shot put and finished third at state. Simon Kenton: Sophia DeLisio leads the distance crew and the Pioneers. She won the 3A regional championship in the 3,200 and finished fourth at state. Also led the Pioneers to the regional title in the 4x800. Lloyd returns Jamorrow Dawson, who was third in the long jump at state and part of the fifth place 4x400 relay team. Ludlow returns three seniors who finished eighth in the 4x800 at state: Nate Butcher, Darrell Corn and Chris Welbers. Senior Chandler Booker qualified for state in high jump and sophomore Billy Goodpaster in the 110 hurdles. Senior Tiffany Victor was sixth in the 400 at state in girls. St. Henry, second at state last season, welcomes back defending regional pole vault champ and hurdler Kim Spritzky and runner Hannah Jones while adding cross country standout Maliah Heck. The area is strong in the small-school class. Spritzky won the pole vault in 11 feet, 6 inches, just off the state record of 12 feet. She won three medals and just missed a fourth in the triple jump by a quarter of an inch. FILE PHOTO

Purchasing your holiday ham Gateway EMS wins national accreditation

Spring is here! Along with beautiful flowers and warm weather, it is often a time for holiday meal celebrations that include a ham dinner. But do you get confused when you go to the store and see all your options? Review this information before you start looking so that hopefully your decisions are easier! By definition, ham is the cured leg of pork. True ham comes from the hind leg of the hog. The front leg gives us the picnic, Boston and cottage hams – sometimes not considered “true” hams. Curing and smoking the ham gives the ham its characteristic flavor. Hams are cured in either a moist way (most grocery store hams) or in a dry way (such as country ham). Ready-to-eat hams include prosciutto and cooked hams – they can be eaten right out of the package. Fresh hams and hams only treated to destroy trichinae must be cooked by the consumer before eating. Hams that must be cooked will include cooking and safe handling instructions. In the grocery store, you can buy a bone-in whole ham or half. How much to buy? If you are serving boneless ham, 1/4-1/3 pound per person is sufficient. Bone-in ham recommendations are 1/3 to 1/2 pound per person. Whole hams can be tough to tackle due to

their size and difficulty carving. Half hams are sold as either Kathy R. a butt or Byrnes shank half EXTENDING KNOWLEDGE ham. The butt half has the biggest muscles, so they are meatier. However, the butt has 2 bones to cut around, and the shank only has one so consumers often prefer it. Since it only has one bone, the shank half has more meat per bone than the butt half. If your ham is not labeled, look at the shape. A shank end ham has a pointy end and is shaped like a funnel; the butt end is more dome or rounded in shape. As previously noted, one problem with the butt half is the two bones to cut around. A “semi boneless” ham has the aitch bone removed, while the femur is left in for structure and flavor. This makes it easier to carve. Sometimes you may find a half ham labeled “butt portion” or “shank portion” – this means the prime center slices have been removed to sell as ham steaks. You may find one labeled, “no slices removed,” then you are guaranteed to have a true half. Boneless hams often do not have as good a flavor as a bone in ham (also doesn’t have the

bone leftover for soup!). After removing bones, a synthetic binder is added to the ham and it is pressed back together. Also on the label ... ham moisture information » A true ham has no added water » Ham in “natural juices” contains very little water (7 to 8 percent). Both this ham and the previous one are quite good, but can be a little harder to cook as they can dry out of not properly watched. » Water added ham – contains 10 to 15 percent water added. These are easier for most cooks to prepare, but remember – you are paying for added water. » Ham and water product – contains over 16 percent water added. These products tend to be spongy and not as flavorful, but they are easy to cook.

Gateway Community & Technical College Emergency Medical ServicesParamedic program was awarded national accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs. The accreditation process involves meeting nationally established accreditation standards, peer review and approval by the CAAHEP Board of Directors. CAAHEP president Thomas K.

The standards by which these programs are measured are developed by the professionals in the discipline and exemplify what it takes to be successful in that profession.

public by providing wellprepared, qualified workforce. Programs such as EMS must be accredited or hold a Letter of Review so students who complete the program may take the National Registry certification test. Without one of these approvals, students may not test or become certified paramedics. The Gateway EMT program held the Letter of Review prior to becoming fully accredited. “Accreditation shows future EMS students and the public at large that our paramedic program is sound and has met certain standards for excellence,” said Dawn Bloemer, Gate-

way Paramedic & EMT program coordinator. “This is especially important right now when we have a shortage of paramedics in the Northern Kentucky area and have very few colleges or higher education institutions qualified to train our paramedics. We have worked very hard to obtain this accreditation and want to deliver the best-educated paramedics to our communities.” For more information about the Emergency Medical Services program at Gateway contact program coordinator, Dawn Bloemer, DBLOEMER0001 859-442-1151.



Children’s Law Center names exec director The Children’s Law Center Board of Directors announced it has chosen Acena Beck to be the executive director. Beck, the deputy director, will assume the duties and responsibilities of Beck executive director on July 1. She takes over for Kim Brooks Tandy, who founded the Covington-based legal-services center for children and youth in 1989. Tandy is stepping down June 30. “I look forward to the next few months I will be remaining at Children’s Law Center as its executive director, but I also very much look forward to passing the baton to Acena,” said Tandy, who has served as executive director for 28 years. “I have full confidence that she will lead us into the future with the same enthusiasm, insight and leadership we have already witnessed.” Beck, a native of Morehead who now resides in Fort Mitchell, will also become the chief executive officer for the organization, while coordinating with the board of directors to set its internal vision and goals. She will continue to perform her legal duties of advo-

cating for children and youth and leading the organization’s public policy work. “I am very pleased Acena Beck accepts the duties and responsibilities of executive director effective July 1,” said Joseph Nava, the group’s board president. “Acena is an outstanding attorney with a brilliant record advocating for children’s legal rights; we are looking forward to her leading the Children’s Law Center into its third decade of providing quality representation for our children and youth.” Beck has extensive experience in family and juvenile law, representing clients in private practice and in the nonprofit sector. She is licensed to practice law in state and federal courts in Kentucky. At Children’s Law Center, Beck represents youth on a variety of legal issues. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Morehead State University, then received her law degree from Northern Kentucky University’s Chase College of Law. She is active in the Northern Kentucky Bar Association and the Kentucky Bar Association, and currently serves on the Kentucky Access to Justice Commission. “I am excited and honored to have been chosen

to continue Kim Tandy’s legacy. I look forward to working with the board and CLC’s talented and passionate staff to create an exciting new chapter for the organization,” said Beck of her new role. The Children’s Law Center is a unique nonprofit legal service center protecting the rights of children and youth to help them overcome barriers and transition into adulthood, better self-advocate for their own needs, and successfully contribute to society. It provides individual legal advocacy to children and youth. Through its public policy work, training and education, impact litigation, and juvenile defender support services, it seeks to improve the systems that serve children. CLC offers services in Kentucky and Ohio, and collaborates with other organizations within the region and nationally on a variety of legal topics relating to children and youths. For nearly three decades, CLC lawyers have worked to provide free individual legal advocacy to children and youth, and seeks to impact systems that serve them. Through its work as lawyers and change agents, CLC provides the opportunities for young people to better advocate for their own needs.

Independence youth will be honored at the 2017 Walk to Cure Arthritis On May 21, 4-year-old Lily Warner of Independence will be honored at the 2017 Cincinnati Walk to Cure Arthritis presented by The Christ Hospital Joint & Spine Center at Sawyer Point. This will be the third year the Warner family will be fundraising for the Walk to Cure Arthritis, which supports research and programs sponsored by the Arthritis Foundation to improve the lives of people with arthritis. While Warner looks like any other 4-year-old, one big difference is that she is one of approximately 300,000 children and 54 million adults in the United States who suffer from the daily pain of arthritis. Kyle and Christina Warner first noticed their daughter wouldn’t bear much weight on her legs in the morning and she walked with a slight limp. Then one morning she woke with extremely swollen knees. The pediatrician ran tests to rule out other illnesses and referred Lily to a rheumatologist. She was then diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. Lily is able to participate in most activities, including jumping, running and playing with her brother, thanks to her weekly Enbrel injection. Sometimes she does have a little more pain, and her family finds she needs to

slow down and they often need to carry her more than usual. The Warners feel it is best to focus on Lily and her needs and to let her know she is not alone in this journey. There was a lot of new information to learn about her arthritis, but little by little they learned what worked for Lily and stayed focused on her. The Warners are thankful they live in a location where Lily has ready access to a pediatric rheumatologist. There are 11 states where parents have to take their child to another state for care because there is no pediatric rheumatologist in their state (there are approximately only 350 Pediatric Rheumatologists in the United States). The Warner family is

looking forward to this year’s Walk. They are especially looking forward to family visiting from New York since Lily has been name as one of this year’s honorees. They love that the event is family friendly and is also a great venue to support people of all ages who are affected by arthritis. They also feel it’s the perfect way to educate the public that, “Kids get Arthritis too.” Join Lily and her team, Love for Lily, at this year’s Walk to Cure Arthritis at Sawyer Point Sunday, May 21. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the event starts at 10 a.m. For more details about the Walk to Cure Arthritis, visit or call 513-271-4545 for more information.

Covington couple helps a community see Tom and Mary Ellen Cody of Covington were recently honored as 2016 Leaders of Vision at the third annual “A Feast for the Eyes” gala supporting The Cincinnati Eye Institute Foundation’s (The CEI Foundation) community outreach efforts. “The Codys have made a positive impact on our community that will be felt for generations,” said Patrick Ward, president and CEO of The CEI Foundation. “By graciously lending their name to the event, they are continuing their legacy of leadership.” Nearly 300 supporters raised $130,000, which included the sale of artwork from nationally collected artists such as Paul Chidlaw (1900-1989), a local painter and art instructor who suffered from macular degeneration later in his career. Chidlaw continued to create art until his death and is one of Cincinnati’s most-collected artists. “The event proceeds support the foundation’s four adult

vision clinics in Greater Cincinnati; the training of tomorrow’s eye care professionals, including support of the Ophthalmology Resident Program at University of Cincinnati College of Medicine; and an innovative research fund seeking new cures and treatments for eye disease,” said Ward. The free vision clinics serve 2,000 low-income patients a year who have no private or public eye care coverage. Mary Ellen Cody is a longtime community volunteer. She is a board member of Every Child Succeeds; The Carnegie Center; and the Central Clinic Foundation. She is a past president of Dress for Success Cincinnati and a former board member of St. Ursula Academy and 4C for Children. She served on the development board of the Chicago Province of the Society of Jesus and was named Enquirer Woman of the Year in 2006. Tom Cody is current chairman of Cincinnati Children’s

Hospital Medical Center and serves on the boards of Xavier University and The Cincinnati Eye Institute Foundation. He retired as vice chairman of Macy’s and has chaired the United Way of Greater Cincinnati and

Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber of Commerce. In 2012, Cody was named a Great Living Cincinnatian. In 2015, Tom and Mary Ellen were United Way Tocqueville Society Award recipients. The CEI Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Cincinnati Eye Institute, is committed to supporting programs designed to promote and maintain a lifetime of good vision. “What’s so important about the foundation is that we tend to look at vision care as a minor need,” said Andrew Robbins, M.D., a retired CEI surgeon and foundation volunteer. “Yet at one of the last vision clinics, we saw a patient in his 60s who had difficulty seeing the big “E” on the vision chart. And his vision had been that way his whole life.” “As a physician,” added James Faulkner, M.D., another volunteer CEI Foundation physician, “it’s not unusual to have a young child who has never worn glasses react with, ‘Wow.

I can see a leaf on a tree.’ But we never expect to see that in an adult. Several of my patients – even in their 40s – have had whole new worlds open up to them after treatment: opportunities for employment, for driving, for taking care of themselves.” “So many eye diseases are like ticking time bombs and they are going to continue to progress until they’re discovered and taken care of,” said Tom Cody. “Many folks who come into The Cincinnati Eye Institute Foundation’s clinics are in that situation. The fuse has been lit, and not having the ability to come to the clinic and be taken care of will cause an irretrievable loss of sight.” More than 21,000 lives have been touched by The CEI Foundation’s outreach and clinic programs since 2008.

The students’ participation enables them to received pro bono credit required for graduation. “We come together every Sept. 11 to pay tribute to those who risk their lives for our safety. This is yet another way to thank our police officers for their tireless contributions to our community,” said Lawrence & Associates founder Justin Lawrence. The Kentucky sessions run all day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at

the Lawrence offices located at 2500 Chamber Center Drive, Suite 300, Fort Mitchell. Parking is free. Active-duty officers and their spouses call for an appointment and receive an arrival time. They then complete a brief questionnaire and work with a trained Chase law student who uses the questionnaire to prepare the first draft of the will. The officer, student and spouse (if applicable) then meet with one of the supervising attorneys who reviews the

will and discusses it with the officer and spouse to ensure the prepared will matches expectations. The will does not cover complicated estate planning. The officer and spouse then sign the will in front of witnesses and a notary. At that point, the will is complete. “We try to make it as easy and efficient as possible for the officers,” said Lawrence. For the first year Ohio officers can receive the same service on April 15 at the new Lawrence & Associates West Chester, Ohio, location at 4837 Rial-

to Road, Suite A. Partner Maria Dyson will supervise the process for each officer with assistance from Megan Salyers of the Salyers Law Office, Blue Ash. Interested Kentucky officers should call 859-371-LWYR (5997) by April 17 to secure an appointment time until the time slots are full. Ohio officers phone 513-351-LWYR (5997) for appointments by April 8 or until the appointment schedule is full. For more information visit
