KSO kicks off summer series

By Stephanie Salmons

COVINGTON — The Kentucky Symphony Orchestra offers up a patriotic twist when it kicks off its 19th annual free summer concert series at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 6, in Covington’s Devou Park band shell. The program, “Dvorak: Liv-

ing in America,” features celebrated Czech composer Antonin Dvorak’s music, including his symphony from the New World and the regional premiere of his cantata, “The American Flag.” “Dvorak’s music, written in and for America, presents the KSO with an opportunity to celebrate a traditional holiday while reflecting on American

ideals – freedom, character and honor,” said KSO music director James Cassidy. The holiday program opens with a patriotic premiere of KSO pianist Steve Hinnenkamp’s “The Pledge of Allegiance” with words by Francis Bellamy. Bellamy wrote the pledge in 1892 – around the time Dvorak arrived in the United States.

KSO Chorale, Voices of the Commonwealth and Clermont Festival Chorale members join in the celebration. Visit for complete program information. Dvorak moved to the U.S. in 1892 as the director of America’s National Conservatory of Music in New York City. He also spent time in the Midwest to tap into America’s cultural

and musical heritage. Concerts are held rain or shine. Parking is free throughout the park. TANK shuttles run from Covington Catholic to the band shell from 6-7:30 p.m. Cost is $1 each way. Those attending should bring blankets or lawn chairs. For more information, visit or call 859-431-6216.

Shave ice treats help beat the heat By Amy Scalf

Musicians of all skill levels play an array of acoustic instruments in unison at the NKY Unplugged Acoustic Society sessions each month. BRANDON HOELLE/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

Acoustic club celebrates one-year anniversary

By Brandon Hoelle

EDGEWOOD — A thousand strings reverberated at once at the Edgewood Senior Center Thursday night. It was the oneyear anniversary of the acoustic club Northern Kentucky Unplugged and nearly 60 musicians of varying skill levels had come to celebrate. “We’ve got hundreds of years of combined musical experience in that room right now,” said Lynette Jolicoeur, creator of the acoustic club. “Basically what we’re all about is just sharing music and bringing Northern Kentucky together.” After a warm welcome from

Jolicoeur, residents Heather Buckley and M.J. Stallings took the stage and played an acoustic version of Elizabeth Cotten’s “Freight Train.” Almost instinctively, those in the crowd lifted their instruments and began to play and sing along. “We get armchair musicians who’ve never played in front of people in their entire life come and tell me, ‘This is a dream of mine, I’ve always wanted to play in a band,’” Jolicoeur said, admiring the harmony in the room before her. “It means a lot to people.” Jolicoeur creates adult programs for the city of Fort Mitchell on a consulting basis and came up with the idea for an acoustic society last year. Origi-

nally called Fort Mitchell Unplugged, it was only a month before Edgewood got wind of it and wanted to participate. “Edgewood said they wanted to be involved and began underwriting this whole program,” Jolicoeur said. “They gave us their senior center to use every month.” It works like this: Anyone can come to the free events from 6-9 p.m. held on the fourth Thursday of every month. Everyone is encouraged to bring an acoustic or light percussive instrument. For those who revel in the limelight, a sign-up sheet is available through Jolicoeur to

See page A2 for additional information



PARK HILLS — In the midst of summer, a tropical oasis appeared along Dixie Highway. This Tropical Sno location at 1560 Dixie Hwy., featuring tiki hut umbrellas and junglelike plants, is managed by brothers Marcus Dehlinger, 17, and Mitchell Griffin, 19. They tasted traditional Hawaiian shave ice on a family trip to Hawaii, and when they saw it again on spring break in Fort Myers, Fla., they decided they could bring that refreshing flavor home with them. Now, instead of working as busboys, the pair are busy scheduling employees, managing inventory and figuring payroll for a staff of 14. They love it. “It was pretty easy to figure out this is what we wanted to do,” said Griffin. They ran a mobile stand last summer, which they continue to take out to events and private parties, but only opened

the stationary stand in June. Their stand is right outside Covington Catholic High School, where Dehlinger will be a senior in the fall and where Griffin graduated in 2012. Park Hills Mayor Don Catchen is a huge fan of the shave ice, remarking during the June City Council meeting that he wished they’d gotten out sooner so he could have a “Big Kahuna.” Griffin said the shave ice makes all the difference in their frozen treat. “It’s more authentic. We shave the ice off a block of ice, like they do in Hawaii, instead of crushing ice cubes, which is what most places do,” he said. Tropical Sno offers more than 50 flavors, some of which are their own concoctions, but patrons can customize their own favorites, even adding “Sno Cap” non-dairy cream topping or using the flavored ice to top a scoop of vanilla ice

Knochelmann running for Kenton judge-executive Community Recorder CRESCENT SPRINGS —

Kenton County District 3 Commissioner Kris Knochelmann announced his intention to run in the 2014 Republican Party primary for Kenton County judge-executive. The lifelong Kenton County resident, currently residing in Crescent Springs, has served as commissioner since 2007. Current Judge-executive Steve Arlinghaus, also a Republican, who was elected in 2010, has

also announced he will run again. “I have never considered myself a politician, rather a small business owner who wants to serve our community. Over the past few years when asked by others to consider serving our county as judge-executive, I was flattered but thought that serving as a commissioner was enough. However, after prayerful consideration with my family and friends, I have decided to enter the GOP primary,” said Knochelmann. Knochelmann says he will focus his campaign on the county’s future and believes his background in public service and business leadership will benefit the area. “I believe people and businesses create jobs,

not government. It is the duty of government to provide community assets like roads, infrastructure and first responders. I also believe government has an obligation to nurture entrepreneurial spirit with good economic development,” he said. “The county has many more opportunities to participate in shared services with cities and other counties. With open minds and open ears, we can provide better services for less money. That is what the public expects from public servants.” Knochelmann owns Schneller Plumbing, Heating & Air. He is a graduate of Covington Latin School and Xavier University with an accounting degree.

NASCAR champ visits Fort Wright By Amy Scalf

FORT WRIGHT — Peyton Waymeyer stood in the rain for more than an hour to see her favorite NASCAR driver, Brad Keselowski. Wearing a bright yellow raincoat, the 5-yearold Florence girl waited by the trailer carrying the Sprint Cup Champion’s No. 2 car, because children aren’t allowed in Dickmann’s Sports Pub & Grub where Keselowski appeared June 26. Peyton’s mom, Kasi, and grandmother, Bonnie Meiman of Independence, twice swept the little blonde girl into line with more than 100 other fans, once for a wristband to stand in line and once for the actual autograph. She’s not supposed to talk to strangers, so Peyton just smiled when she got close to Keselowski for the photo. Then her mom took her right back out into the rain. Keselowski was on his way to compete in the Kentucky Speedway’s “triple-header weekend” June 27-29 in Sparta. NASCAR fan G.C. Grayson arrived at 2:30


and the driver participated in a responsible drinking campaign during the appearance, but did not have time for media interviews. Richard Dickmann, owner of Dickmann’s Sports Pub & Grub, said this is the third year for Keselowski to stop by Fort Wright before heading to the Kentucky Speedway. “After he stopped here, he started winning, I like to think we have something to do with that,” said Dickmann.

play on stage while the group follows along with tablature and sheet music. This way, the rows and rows of musicians with harps, acoustic guitars and dulcimers all play in harmony, but at their own pace, Jolicoeur said. “The beautiful part is that all the music is really amenable to a beginner,” Jolicoeur said. “They are basic chords, it’s a slow pace, and nobody’s looking over your shoulder.” Jolicoeur said the fear of playing in front of people can hinder a growing musician’s abilities, but a group like this can build confidence instead. “Because it is such a large group of people, nobody can hear you play, so there is nobody to judge you,” Jolicoeur said. “You’ve got that veil of anonymity protecting you, allowing you to just play music.” Doug Beckham, Edgewood city administrator, agreed, saying it was this anonymity that attracted him to the club in the first place. “I started playing bluegrass in the mountains of North Carolina about 25 years ago, but you’ll notice I still sit in the back,” Beckham said, laughing. “It’s for all ages, all abilities, that’s what’s great

Keselowski’s car is sponsored by Miller Lite,

about it.” A self-described “shy” player, Beckham said everyone with an interest in music should come to at least one session. “I’ll never be a professional player,” Beckham said. “But it is an outlet for me. Music is such a release for me. What better way to release the stresses of the day than this?” Apparently that message isn’t lost on area residents. According to Jolicoeur, Northern Kentucky Unplugged has been growing steadily since its humble beginnings one year ago. “Right now we are try-

ing to attract a younger crowd to get some fresh music in here,” Jolicoeur said. “While at the same time we have to be careful to stay true to our roots and continue to provide this outlet for the musicians who already come.” The next session is from 6-9 p.m. July 25 at the Edgewood Senior Center and everyone is invited.

coconut and vanilla. Strawberry and coconut together is called “Tiger’s Blood.” After having his first taste of Tropical Sno, 11year-old Jack Pitstick of Villa Hills, couldn’t say enough about it. “It actually melts in your mouth. Compared to other places, the quantity is immensely better, and the flavors taste so much better,” he said. “The fruit flavors taste exactly how they should taste. Pineap-

ple tastes like pineapple. Orange tastes like orange, not like orange flavor.” His sister, Ceilagh, age 9, tried Jamaican Punch, listed as including mango, banana and pineapple flavors. “It tastes really good, like a banana toffee,” she said. They both said they wanted to come back again soon.

‘BEST OF BOTH WORLDS’ By Melissa Stewart,

FLORENCE — The Providence Extension Program (PEP) offers home-schooled students the “best of both worlds,” according to Jeanette Waits of Union. The program combines home education and classical Christian school for grades seven through 12, Waits, PEP’s Northern Kentucky administrator, explained. The goal, she said, is to provide actively involved parents with a Christ-centered college preparatory alternative. PEP was founded in Milford, Ohio, in 2001. Programs are held there, in Mason, Ohio, Jacksonville, Fla., and just last year, Northern Kentucky. The Northern Kentucky group meets twice a week at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church on Gunpowder Road in Florence. Privately contracted tutors, “experts in their subject area,” Waits said, meet with students twice a week for classroom instruction. “Our group of excellent tutors are excited about teaching their subjects and grounding

Northern Kentucky University went north for its new athletic director June 26, as the Norse look to continue rising in the ranks of NCAA Division I. NKU hired veteran administrator Ken Bothof to be its permanent AD, replacing Scott Eaton. Bothof comes to NKU from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, where he has served as athletic director since 2002. Green Bay is in the Horizon League, one of the NCAA’s top mid-major conferences. “What Ken has accomplished at Green Bay is remarkable, and NKU’s transition to Division I has gone much more smoothly than we anticipated, and now with Ken on our team, we know our best days lie ahead,” said NKU President Geoffrey Mearns. He said Bothof fits every crucial criteria that an athletic director needs, including hiring and mentoring coaches, managing facilities and compliance efforts, and raising revenue. “He’s a very capable leader and he will bring the class that we want everyone associated with our program to have,” he said. “We had a strong pool of applicants, including several sitting ADs. The high quality of that pool reflects our reputation.” Bothof was one of three finalists who were brought to campus last week for private interviews and public forums . The others were Univer-

NKU will have camps in volleyball, boys soccer and baseball July 8-12, and girls basketball July 15-18. Visit for more information on those. The volleyball team is looking to build on that 25-7 campaign. They start Aug. 30-31 at a Xavier University tourney, playing major-conference schools Xavier, Michigan and Clemson. NKU’s first home match is Sept. 2 against Wright State. NKU will host Kentucky in men’s soccer in an exhibition Aug. 25. NKU will play at Cincinnati Sept. 18 but will not have a home match until Sept. 29 against Bowling Green. The women’s soccer team will host IUPUI in an exhibition Aug. 17 and will have its first regular home match Aug. 25 against Murray State. In cross country, NKU will host its 18th annual Brian Rohne memorial 5K Aug. 11, starting at 7 p.m.

sity of North Carolina senior associate athletic director Karlton Creech and University of Northern Iowa senior associate athletic director Jean Berger. Bothof officially takes over Aug. 19. “During my visits here, I was truly inspired by the passion and the pride that was displayed at NKU and by NKU’s commitment to the complete student-athlete experience,” Bothof said. “I truly believe there’s a great foundation that has been laid upon which we can build a positive culture that we can all be proud of.” At Green Bay, Bothof was instrumental in raising $11 million in private funds to complete a $33 million renovation and expansion of the Phoenix Sports Center. He also developed an outdoor facilities plan that includes new soccer and softball facilities, as well as expanded recreational and intramural opportunities. Basketball has flourished at Green Bay, and during

his tenure, Phoenix athletes have earned a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher in each of the last 23 semesters. NKU will soon begin its second year at the NCAA Division I level. Last year, the NKU volleyball team posted a record of 25-7, including a 12-6 mark in the A-Sun. NKU’s 25 wins were the most ever by a volleyball program in its first year of reclassification from Division II to Division I. The women’s basketball team finished 15-13 and earned a berth in the Women’s Basketball Invitational postseason tournament. The men’s basketball team led the Atlantic Sun in home attendance with an average of 3,551 per game. The school’s student athletes have posted a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or greater during six of the last seven semesters. Bothof said he was attracted to move from Green Bay by the size of NKU’s student body (16,000) and Mearns’ vision for the future.

Guiding a common agenda for N. Ky.

Vision 2015 was launched eight years ago with a charge to implement a bold, strategic plan for Northern Kentucky. The organization’s most innovative and important work is highlighted in the recently released Vision 2015 Annual Report to the Community. Vision 2015 was created as a shared public plan that represents the region’s priorities. Six focus areas emerged: Economic competitiveness; educational excellence; livable communities; urban renaissance; regional stewardship; and effective governance. The 2013 community report details achievements in each focus area, including the opening of the Licking River Greenway and Trails, the first class of UpTech graduates, and The Catalytic Development Funding Corp. of Northern Kentucky reaching its goal of rais-

ing $10 million for the development of market race housing and commercial projects in the region’s urban Kara Williams core. Northern COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST Kentucky is a COLUMNIST region recognized for its ability to work together to get things done, a concept known as “collective impact.” Vision 2015’s annual report focuses on the five pillars of the collective impact model: Common agenda; measuring results consistently; mutually reinforcing activities; continuous communication; and backbone support organization. Using these five pillars and working with community, business, government, education

and other leaders from both sides of the Ohio River, Vision 2015 helps establish and guide a common agenda for Northern Kentucky. In 2012, Vision 2015 partnered with Agenda 360 – Southwest Ohio’s regional action plan for job growth, talent acquisition and economic opportunity – on a number of initiatives, including The Story Project. We introduced The Story Project to create a common narrative for the region. It is a project that uncovers our region’s DNA and through powerful storytelling identifies what sets us apart from competing regions. In the spirit of the collective impact model, Vision 2015 consistently measures results using clear, objective data. Vision 2015’s Regional Indicators Report expanded this year to include The 2020 Jobs Out-

Celebrating the spirit of 1776

Independence Day is our country’s most patriotic of holidays, chock-full of flags, fireworks and family festivities. It is a day when we Americans proudly wear red, white and blue as an expression of our devotion for the greatest country in the world. While many of us will display outward symbols of the holiday and feel a renewed sense of what it means to be American, without doubt we should give thought to those earliest patriots who risked their lives and livelihoods to adopt the very document that is at the heart of why we celebrate today – the Declaration of Independence. In July 1776, John Adams wrote a letter to his wife Abigail that stated the signing of that historic document would

“… be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemoratDamon Thayer ed as the day of deliverance, COMMUNITY by solemn acts RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.” Today, more than just a commemoration of our country’s successful break from Great Britain, our Independence Day celebrations have

expanded to honor our nation’s history, our military, and our way of life. As pops orchestras across the country entertain us with traditional favorites like “The Star Spangled Banner” and “The Stars and Stripes Forever” as a backdrop to the visual excitement of grand fireworks’ displays, we all take pride in our American heritage. Although Independence Day festivities have evolved since 1776, one thing remains the same – American patriotism is the spirit that drives this uniquely American holiday and continues to keep our nation strong and free. State Sen. Damon Thayer, R-Georgetown, is a member of the Kentucky Senate, representing southern Kenton County.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR When does the anger cease

Can someone please explain why Tom Wurtz continues to get space in this paper to publicize his obsession with Kenton County’s library system? I understand the need to hear all sides of an argument, but how many times do we have to hear this individual’s? Once again, he is given a platform to advance his straw-man arguments and to conflate a legal issue (improperly raised tax rates) with a personal one (his opinion that libraries are failing in their role as centers of learning). What’s the deal, Tom? Would you still be angry about the tax increases if literacy rates in the county were at 100 percent? I thought this whole issue was about the rule of law, so what does that have to do with

the fact that DVD’s are also available at the library and that adults are choosing to read books that you aren’t personally interested in? What do literacy rates even have to do with libraries? Aren’t schools charged with teaching kids to read, with libraries serving as repositories of media made available to those not able to personally own such a collection? Not to mention the fact that that the courts have already agreed with him on the tax issue, so why the continued publications? Is he trying to win over the minds of county residents with these bizarre screeds? On second thought, please keep publishing anything Wurtz sends in. No one could possibly do a better job of showcasing the foolishness of the anti-library campaign. Michael Vaughn Independence

Good vacations start with good planning Summer vacation is finally here, the opportunity to recharge your batteries, reconnect with family and have some fun. Months of planning are about to pay off for a trip that will hopefully keep you refreshed throughout the season. Regardless of what you Ian Mitchell have planned COMMUNITY this summer, RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST it is important for you to remember to pay attention to the not-so-fun aspects of your summer events. Here are some tips to help keep troubles at bay before, during and after time away: Before leaving town: » Thoroughly research your destination and associated costs. Know the price ranges of the restaurants you want to visit and the activities you want to pursue, and understand the terms of your rental or hotel booking. » Set a budget based on your research. Put aside money each week toward your goal and start early. » Look for deals. Several organizations offer membership discounts, and you may find additional savings through your credit card, the area’s visitors bureau, attraction websites and travel sites. » Try to be flexible on dates. It can make a big difference in the cost of lodging and flights. » Notify trusted neighbors that you’ll be away and when you expect to return. Let them know if you will have a house sitter. » Place a hold on your mail and newspaper deliveries or ask a friend or neighbor to pick them up. You also may want to have your yard maintained. A pile of newspapers and an overgrown yard can signal an empty house. » Simulate a “lived-in” appearance by using timers for turn lights and a radio or TV during expected hours.

» Notify your credit card providers of your travel plans: When you’re leaving, where you’re going and when you’ll return. This helps companies identify fraudulent charges if your card is used in an area you’re not visiting. » Do not share your travel plans on social networking sites. During your trip: » Make lunch, rather than dinner, your big meal out. Prices are lower and often the menu is the same. » Take advantage of smartphone apps that can help find the best prices for gas and other savings. » Use mobile banking apps to monitor accounts and track spending so you don’t have surprises when statements arrive. Ice cream, souvenirs and drink tabs add up fast. » Never carry large amounts of cash; use traveler’s checks or credit cards. » Take only your driver’s license/official ID and two credit cards: One to carry, another to lock in a safe in case your wallet is stolen. » Don’t access financial data or personal information on public computers or public Wi-Fi networks. Be cautious when accessing a hotel room Internet connection. » If you use an ATM, choose one inside a bank. Well-lit lobbies with security cameras, bank employees and customers provide more security for you and for the ATM, meaning it is less likely to be a tampering target. When you return: » Let friends and family know you’re home. » Get your mail. Open it and electronic mail promptly to address bills or other urgent matters. » Continue to monitor your accounts. Check statements to make sure nothing is out of place. If you notice something unusual or fraudulent, contact your provider immediately.

Carleen Wehage of Crestview Hills waters her garden with rainwater. KAMELLIA SMITH FOR THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

RAIN BARRELS ARE A WAY TO KEEP YOUR LAWN GREEN By Kamellia Soenjoto Smith Recorder Contributor


backyard in Crestview Hills, Carleen Wehage turned a faucet handle and water poured into her watering can. But the faucet wasn’t connected to a pipe, it was sticking out of a brown plastic barrel. “I had seriously considered getting a rain barrel,” she recalled as she sprinkled the water on her flowers. She finally got one last year as a birthday present from her grandson. “And I have thoroughly enjoyed it.” Her grandson, Brian Gurley, and his wife have benefited from two rain barrels at their house. Each holds 60 gallons and collects rainwater from their roof, which they use for landscaping. “We had them refill at least 10 times last year,” he shared. “That’s 600 gallons of water for each barrel. That’s a lot of water.” Gurley is enthusiastic about

water conservation. He and an old friend, Brad Knochelmann, give talks at local libraries and garden clubs, hoping to raise people’s awareness. “Everybody can make a conscious effort to think about their consumption,” Knochelmann explained, for example “brushing your teeth and having the water running when you can simply turn it off.” A recent study by Columbia University Water Center, water services provider Veolia Water, and the collaborative Growing Blue highlights the risks of water scarcity across the U.S. as climate change increases the potential for drought. It was in 2010 when Gurley and Knochelmann were inspired to do more. Knochelmann was taking classes at the Chicago Center for Green Technology where he learned about green resources such as solar panels and vegetative roofs. Gurley would visit him and

Brian Gurley, left, and Brad Knochelmann stand by the rain barrel they set up in Crestview Hills. KAMELLIA SMITH FOR THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

they would talk about what Knochelmann had learned. “I said ‘As soon as you move back here, Brad, we have to do something green’,” Gurley recalled. Two years ago they started a business selling rain barrels

and providing related services. They have around 500 customers so far. “It’s a hobby that’s turned into business,” Knochelmann said. The products they sell, made from recycled materials, are locally produced.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency points out that lawn and garden watering can account for nearly 40 percent of total household water use during the summer. A rain barrel can help reduce the water bill, especially during periods of drought. It also helps decrease the impact of runoff to streams and sanitary sewers. “We’re not in this for money,” Gurley pointed out. “Money is the byproduct of what we’re doing, but the big thing is awareness and education.” Wehage added, “People are getting more and more aware about using our resources wisely.”

Easy meatball, key lime pie recipes

I’m so excited I can hardly contain myself. For a while now I have been yearning to get beehives. We had them when the boys were little and the taste of raw honey, with its super nutritional profile, had me hooked. Tony Poe, our local beekeeper, came out to our little patch of heaven to see if his Rita bees could Heikenfeld make a RITA’S KITCHEN happy home here. Our neighbors have agreed to have the hives along the property line so they will be protected. I’ll let you know what the final assessment is. Here’s hoping …

1 pound ground chuck 1 cup uncooked rice 1 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄4 teaspoon pepper

Annie Mitchell’s porcupine meatballs recipe is a childhood favorite from her mother. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Annie Mitchell shows off her porcupine meatballs at the CincItalia festival. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Sauce Stir together in pan large enough to hold meatballs. 1 can tomato soup 16 oz. can tomato sauce 4-5 shakes of soy sauce (optional, but recommended)

Roll the meat mixture into balls and place them in the sauce; roll them around in sauce to make sure they’re covered. Cook over medium heat. If you make small meatballs, cook them for 25-30 minutes after the sauce starts bubbling. If you

make larger meatballs (the kind that a toothpick couldn’t handle) cook them for about an hour after bubbling.

ically agreed to the terms, but there were no terms there,” she said. Howard It turns Ain out in addition to HEY HOWARD! paying a dollar for her credit score, Huntley had agreed to pay nearly $30 a month for identity theft protection, something she says she never realized. Huntley searched the Internet and found she’s not the only one who feels misled by that company. “I went on the Internet and I pulled them up online and there are more than 150 complaints against them, where they’ve done this same thing to people – charged them without their knowledge,” Huntley said. I checked the website and found the charges are disclosed but they’re very easy to miss. In

ating here, but you get the point.) The key limes were so tiny and exuded hardly any juice. Key lime juice is the answer here! This is one of colleague Brian Patrick’s favorite pies. Shell Either purchase one or make your own by combining 11⁄2 cups graham cracker crumbs, 4 tablespoons sugar and 6 tablespoons butter, melted. Pat into pan and bake in 350 degree oven for about 7-10 minutes, depending upon how crisp you want your crust. Filling 4 large egg yolks, room temperature, lightly

Whisk everything together. Pour into shell and bake in 350 degree oven about 20-25 minutes, until center looks set but is still wobbly. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Garnish with whipped cream and berries.

Puff pastry tops for stews, etc.: “They don’t stick to the bowls.” Wet rims of bowls before putting on pastry, and then stretch firmly over rim. This helps it stick.

Don’t look for a bright green color here unless you add food coloring. True key lime juice looks a bit like lemon juice. I once made this with real key limes. It took close to a week’s earnings to purchase enough key limes. (OK, I’m exagger-

fact, the Better Business Bureau has more than 2,000 complaints about that company. The BBB says customers complain they don’t understand the requirement to cancel within seven days. In addition, the BBB says consumers don’t understand they are agreeing to a monthly membership. Huntley filed a police report and has disputed the charges with her bank. My advice, if you want your credit score and credit monitoring, you can get both without paying anything. There’s a company called Credit Karma that, for free, provides your score and monitors your credit so you’re alerted every time someone accesses your credit report. You can sign up at

Mary Jane Kenyon’s pineapple coleslaw: I’m liking this one! Mary Jane, a Blue Ash reader, sent this to share: “A quick refreshing salad using a fresh package of coleslaw. I use Marzetti Light Original Slaw dressing along with a can of crushed pineapple including juice. I make ahead in the day to blend flavors. This is great when you need a salad


Rita’s amazingly easy and amazingly good key lime pie

Be careful when getting ‘free’ credit score These days it’s not only important to carefully check your credit reports regularly, it’s a good idea to know your credit score. You need to know it before buying anything on credit. But while many websites claim to offer free or low-cost credit scores, unless you’re careful it could end up costing you more than you expected. Elaine Huntley, of Covington, found a website offering a low-cost credit score. “It stated for a dollar you could get three credit scores. So, they asked me for my credit card number and I gave it to them. Not only did they take a dollar, the next month they took $29.95 out of my account. In April, they took $29.95 out of my account again without me knowing,” Huntley said. Huntley called the company and asked why they took nearly $30 each month. “They said by checking the spot that said a dollar, I automat-

and not a lot of time to prepare.”

Tips from readers’ kitchens

Cyndi’s porcupine meatballs

Last month I did a cooking demo with friends Giovanna Trimpe, author of “Holy Chow,” and Annie Mitchell, news director at Sacred Heart Radio, at the CincItalia festival at Harvest Home Park. Annie made these delicious meatballs as an appetizer. No kidding, these are simple and really good. Annie told me she grew up with these meatballs that her mom, Cyndi, made for them. “It’s one of my favorite meals from childhood until now. We eat them with mashed potatoes and succotash,” she told me. I love the fact that these are versatile: Make them small for appetizers or larger for dinner. For photos of the festival, including the biggest cannoli I’ve ever eaten, check out my blog. Meatballs Mix together gently:
