Fort Wright’s Days Inn is now closed By Amy Scalf

FORT WRIGHT — Owners of the Fort Wright Days Inn said the property’s proximity to future Brent Spence Bridge construction forced them to close the hotel. Mason Mednick, executive vice president of Milestone Capital Corporation, the company that owns the property at 1945 Dixie Hwy. through Hospitality Associates of Fort Wright, Ltd., issued a written statement Thursday afternoon, one day after the hotel site was closed down. “The actions of the Transportation Cabinet and other government agencies involved in the Brent Spence Bridge Project have effectively given us no alternative but to regrettably close the Days Inn Fort Wright hotel, as any future investment in the hotel would not be prudent, sensible or rational given the circumstances. We regret the need to have to take this action and the impact it will have on our loyal and dedicated workforce, but have no other responsible alternatives at this time,” it said. According to the statement, hotel owners first learned the bridge project could impact the hotel property on July 11, 2011, but since then, Hospitality Associates has not received a clear timetable or additional information. “Further complicating matters are media reports of partisan disputes over funding the Bridge reconstruction project which are delaying commencement of construction even though planning and pre-construction activity has continued. All of this has eliminated the opportunity to

extend our franchise license agreement with Days Inn which recently expired per its terms or justify the investment of additional funds to further improve the property which our guests are entitled to and our franchise requires under these uncertain, unpredictable and volatile circumstances. The announced intention to take our property through eminent domain proceedings also makes a sale of the property to another hotel owner/operator infeasible,” according to the statement. Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 6 Chief Executive Engineer Rob Hans said, “Any discussion about potential property acquisition at this time is premature.” Hans acknowledged the Days Inn property was on a preliminary list of properties that could be acquired for the Brent Spence Project, and said it was listed “as a 100 percent total take because the parking lot that sits to the east between the building and the interstate would be impacted.” Because the project is still in very preliminary planning stages, Hans said no official discussions have taken place with any property owners. Fort Wright Mayor Joe Nienaber, who discussed the hotel’s closing during the City Council caucus meeting Wednesday, said, “It would be difficult for a business to say, ‘Hey, we’re going to put $300,000 to $400,000 into a building that will be knocked down for bridge construction.’ We’re trying to work with them to figure out how we can help them. This is a situation where as soon as that

CovCath students are stand-in pallbearers By Chris Mayhew

PARK HILLS — When the county is paying for a burial and no family is around to carry the casket, Covington Catholic High School students step in as pallbearers. Senior Mark Schult of Edgewood is one of about 30 students signed up to carry a casket and help say a prayer when needed. Schult said service is a big part of what Covington Catholic students do, but the pallbearer program is something the community needs. Helping people is just the right thing to do, he said. “For someone who died with-

There was no problem getting students to sign up to be part of the service program, and now there are two full teams, he said. “I made one announcement and had 30 boys sign up for this,” Snyder said. So far, the students have participated in two burial services, but funeral directors are only now being told about their availability to help with services, he said. See STUDENTS, Page A2

Bean Bash is back for 40th year By Melissa Stewart

FLORENCE — Soon, outside the gates of Turfway Park, a smokey mist shall rise from a giant jet black kettle. No, it’s not some witch’s brew. It is magical, nonetheless, as it symbolizes a special gathering of the community – the annual Bean Bash.

Brewing inside that kettle are beans. Pounds of beans ready to be gobbled down with warm cornbread and a cool drink. “(The Bean Bash) is about community connection,” David Schneider, the event’s board of directors president, said. “The community has taken us on as their event.”

lent and live auctions. Adidas will host a tent sale in the Turfway parking lot during the bash. Of course, there will be bean soup and cornbread. “Personally, being the little chubby guy I am, I love the food,” Richardson said. He added he loves much more that “amazing feeling” he gets knowing he’s helping others. The purpose of Bean Bash is not just to enjoy a hardy meal and live music. According to David Schneider, the goal is to raise $100,000 to be given to BAWAC, Redwood and Special Olympics of Northern Kentucky. “The event is really about the charities and what they do on a daily basis throughout the year,” he said. “They’re the ones working the magic.”

The charities

The mission of BAWAC, based in Florence, is to maximize the vocational potential and quality of life of adults who have disabilities or other barriers to employment.

The teams will typically work in Northern Kentucky, and have to make the burial team a top priority outside of classes, Snyder said. Teams are named blue and white for the school’s colors.

Martha is very intelligent and just a wonderful person to work with.” In one word Guenther described Allen’s work ethic as “dedicated.” “She drives all the way from (Lexington),” she said. “She comes in early and she stays late.

The organization offers counseling, evaluation, life and work skills training, job placement, support services and employment in a therapeutic or community based remunerative work environment. Redwood, based in Fort Mitchell, guides children and adults with multiple and severe disabilities to achieve independence and reach their highest potential throughout their lives. This organization provides educational, therapeutic, and vocational services. Special Olympics provides year-round sports

training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for individuals with intellectual disabilities. “We’re all looking to an end goal to help these folks as much as we can,” Richardson said. “They not only need their families, but also our help to live the best life that they can.”

The history

Bean Bash was started in summer of 1974 by former State Rep. Bill McBee, who died in 2011. Initially conceived as a political fundraiser, the event was eventually reinvented as a charitable fundraiser, Richardson said, in honor of McBee’s son Steve. Steve died in 2009. Richardson said Bean Bash was an opportunity for the McBee family and the Northern Kentucky community to show their support of BAWAC, Redwood and Kids Helping Kids. When Kids Helping Kids moved to Ohio, Special Olympics became the third charity.

The secret recipe

The secret to the bash’s 40 years of success? “The volunteers,” Richardson said. “We’re so blessed to have folks we can count on year after year.” Richardson, who estimates that there are well over100 volunteers, said a few long-time Bean Bash volunteers will be recognized at this milestone event.

If the team gets a phone call for a Saturday morning burial before a football game and a player is on the pallbearer team they make a commitment to go to the cemetery first, Snyder said. “Then they can go to the game afterward,” he said. Catchen said he handles all indigent burial cases in Kenton County, and when he heard Snyder’s offer to have students help with burials he thought it was a great idea.

“Bill said we’ll send young guys up to be pallbearers as a civic duty and curricular activity for the school,” Catchen said. Seeing and being part of a funeral helps teach the students, and they gain service hours, he said. “It’s a great gesture on their part to be involved and it’s good for them,” Catchen said. There are very few indigent burials, so the student’s probably won’t be called on very often, he said.

up there,” said Nienaber. “If those buildings are going to be in existence, we want them to be vibrant, modern, thriving businesses, not a place with police activity and code enforcement situations we have to struggle with. I’m disappointed that a business shut down in Fort Wright, but I hope it’s a sign of good things to come.”

clerk will be able to manage numerous projects while staying focused on the needs of the citizens at all times,” she said. “I have always tried to be a good point of communication for the community. I believe it is very important for citizens to have a person they can count on and come to when they have a question or a problem.” Allen, who has a law background, received her undergraduate degree from the Ohio State University and a juris doctorate from Capital University Law School in Columbus, Ohio. Fort Mitchell was her first experience with city

government. In Ohio, she had worked in government at the state level. Although she will miss Fort Mitchell, Allen said she is looking forward to spending more time with her husband and daughter, and their dog, Daisy. She’s also excited to learn about Lexington government. The city is now accepting applications for city clerk. To apply, visit Deadline is 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27. City Administrator Chris Moriconi said the city hopes to have the position filled in late October. Want to continue the conversation? Tweet @MStewartReports

St. Henry refocuses after All ‘A’ title By James Weber

ERLANGER — The St. Henry District High School volleyball team may be younger and shorter than recent versions of itself, but the goals remain the same. The Crusaders are riding a record of 18-4 heading into a showdown with Ninth Region rival Ryle Sept. 24. St. Henry then plays Newport at home Thursday, Sept. 26, in a conference match. St. Henry is coming off its second state title in the All “A” Classic, which prompted an awards ceremony in school the

morning of Sept. 23. “It was a great feeling to win and it did a lot for our confidence,” said sophomore middle hitter Janelle Tobler, who was the tournament’s Most Valuable Player. St. Henry defeated Allen Central 25-11, 25-8 in the final, capping a six-match romp through the field Sept. 14 in Jeffersontown. The Crusaders won two sets from Presentation by a combined five points but gave up no more than 15 points in any other set. The Crusaders received an MVP performance from Tobler, who led the Crusaders with 36

kills. “She’s a big leaper and she’s a big part of our offense,” said St. Henry head coach Maureen Kaiser. Sophomore Dani Noll was next in kills with 25. Junior setter Kendyll Kraus totaled 120 assists. Noll and Kraus were named all-tournament. Libero Corie Flood recorded 68 digs, and middle hitter Karly Lehmkuhl had eight blocks. Winning six matches in a short period of time tested the team’s depth, which was one of the goals of participating in the See VOLLEY, Page A7

Preventing long TDs key for Lloyd football team By James Weber

ERLANGER — One of Eric Turner’s

main concerns this season about his Lloyd Memorial High School football team is the number of big-play touchdowns it has allowed on defense. Preventing those game-breaking scores will be a major factor as the Juggernauts prepare to face Newport Central Catholic 7 p.m. Friday at Newport Stadium. “They give you quite a few matchup problems,” said Turner, Lloyd’s firstyear head coach. “They have good athletes in the backfield and their quarterback is tough to contain. Their wide receiver is a very good football player. If you’re not disciplined on defense, they can get on the edge and go to the house on any given play.”

COVINGTON — In a season-opening loss to Holmes High School, few things went right for the Holy Cross Indians. Holmes running back Jonathon Scruggs accounted for 217 yards of offense, but one play stood out. Scruggs broke into the open field and was racing toward daylight. It looked like Scruggs would add to his touchdown total, but Holy Cross senior Jalen Beal ran him down and made the tackle. Beal’s speed, athleticism and relentless effort were all on display in that one play, which drew notice of college scouts on hand. “Not many people run him down,” said Holy Cross head coach Bruce Kozerski of Holmes’s Scruggs. Beal has been doing just about everything for the Indians this year, as the team has shifted to a run-heavy offense. Beal rushed for 315 yards over the first three games of the season. He was injured during a September 20 loss to Scott, but will be back in the lineup on September 26. The senior is carrying the weight of the offense and is also one of the Indians’ top defenders. “He is driven, he worked very hard and had a tremendous offseason,” said Kozerski. “With the seniors we have, we feel that we can be successful, but he has to carry the ball.” In the past, Beal provided a change of pace out of the backfield as a supplement to the Indians’ passing attack. This year, opposing defenses have been able to focus their efforts on stopping Beal. While opponents have not been able to slow him down much, Beal and his teammates have had a tough time playing from behind. “Our explosive potential is more in the running game than the passing game,” said Kozerski. “The last five years, we’ve been a very explosive passing team where we could score quicker. Right now, we have to keep it close and make it a one score game late in the game if we’re going to have a chance, because we have to run the ball.”


UP NEXT What: Lloyd Memorial football travels to Newport Central Catholic When: 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27. Where: Newport High School, 900 E 6th St., Newport, Ky. Last week: Lloyd (3-2) won at Gallatin County 28-0. NCC (1-4) lost 36-7 at Dixie Heights.

The Thoroughbreds have strong racing pedigree, as many know, coming off the state championship in Class 2A, popping 63 points on Lloyd along the way in the regular season. This year, a new set of offensive stars is led by quarterback Mac Franzen, running back Jacob Smith and receiver Tommy Donnelly. “They’re a really good football team,” Turner said. “Their record

doesn’t reflect how good they are. They’re going against teams that will be vying for a district championship.” Lloyd is 3-2, winning two straight with strong performances against Owen County (34-7) and Gallatin County (28-0). The one touchdown allowed is a good bounceback from a 34-28 loss to Holmes in game three. “We’ve given up big plays, but other than that, we haven’t given up much,” Turner said. “Holmes scored 34 against See LLOYD, Page A7

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Obamacare deserves better than ‘just-say-no’ approach

Rob Hudson has well articulated his real-world experience of promises and reality negotiating wages and insurance in union bargaining. His anecdotal evidence carries weight as he is fully engaged in the issues. The Affordable Care Act is a law that Sen. Mitch McConnell continues to call a bill. This is a law, thanks to the senator’s lack of input, that could have been better. He said, “No,” to anything that President Barack Obama supported and in the senator’s words to make Mr. Obama a one-term president. The voters have a right to expect constructive

ideas from the loyal opposition. Trying to repeal Obamacare over 40 times is not to be confused with serving the common welfare. No one can deal with “just say no” whereas legislators of good-will serving the nation’s best interests can offer alternatives to what they find objectionable. The Medicare that became law in 1965 has barely any resemblance to the far better program today. The same will be true of the ACA over time if elected officials attend to supporting and improving it. Citizens are counting on it. Mr. Hudson will some day be able to write a column to delineate that. Nancy Rowles Covington

Coaches linked residents to outside world A stentorian blast of the coach’s horn in the distance aroused any dozing hostler and hotelier alike to the arrival of the coach while yet some distance away. Unlike the studied indifference to the arrival or departure of a public conveyance today, all within hearing gathered for the event. This was their only connection with the outside Tom Schiffer world, bringCOMMUNITY ing news, RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST passengers and, perhaps, a little freight and mail. A newspaper was a real treat. As it came into view, the coach rumbled forth with a driver on the box, reins in one hand and loudly cracking his whip with the other. And, yes, this was a scene repeated in Burlington, Florence, Covington and roadhouses in between and beyond. Until shortly after 1800, all travel was by boat, foot or horseback ... there being no wheeled vehicles in Kentucky at all until 1787. “Waggons” were introduced to convey freight and passengers over the crude roads. These gradually phased-out the packhorse men and later gave way to closed coaches. The Covington and Lexington Road (U.S. 25 and I-75 today) touched Boone County’s eastern edge and intersected the road to Louisville (U.S. 42). At an early date there was a line from Burlington to Covington (Route 18, linking with 25 and 42). Toll houses were erected to pay for the upkeep of the roads. One stretch of road had a toll house about every five miles. A typical coach employed six horses. Horses were flesh and blood: they required food, water and periodic rest. The hostler met the coach with six fresh

This is a toll house in Constance, circa about 1910.PROVIDED

horses and led the jaded ones to water and rest. Travelers found rest and overnight accommodations within. The number of roadhouses needed to service man and beast depended upon the steepness of the grade. Stops would be made and a flurry of activity ensued as a hostler hitched the fresh horses, passengers stretched their legs and sought quick refreshment. Pit stops at auto races today are but a present-day manifestation of the scene. Drivers were often arrogant, impatient and tough. At least one froze to death on his box while under way ... the horses keeping the road and stopping in the roadhouse yard. Service was limited to where and when popular subscription was assured and often ran rain or shine. Fare was expensive for the six to eight passengers. Accommodations were primitive and baggage limited to ten pounds or you’d pay extra. The Gaines Tavern in Walton is a surviving example of one of Boone County’s early roadhouses. Railroads and autos gradually replaced them. For a fascinating tale of the social and economic aspects, find J. Winston Coleman Jr.’s “Stage-Coach Days in the Bluegrass” in local history department of the Main Library in Burlington.

A publication of



Educators scam college readiness stats

I was shocked when I read in The Enquirer – “Graduation, college-readiness rates rise sharply in Kentucky” by Antoinette Konz of the Louisville Courier-Journal. It was dramatically different from my research on Kentucky’s college readiness compiled by ACT. In her article, Ms. Konz states, “ ... and college readiness among the state’s graduates climbed above 50 percent for the first time, according to preliminary figures released Tuesday by state officials.” That’s amazing since ACT just reported that for 2013 Kentucky’s College and Career Readiness Benchmarks showed that only 18 percent of Kentucky’s high school students passed all four sections of their study. Something is terrible wrong. My “B.S. Detector” went crazy when I also realized that Kentucky’s average ACT score dropped from 19.8 in 2012 to 19.6 in 2013. How can Kentucky’s record-setting college readiness achievements occurred while ACT scores drop? A deeper look found some interesting results. Here is how ACT defines college readiness: “A benchmark score is the minimum score needed on an ACT subject-area test to indicate a 50 percent chance of obtaining a B or higher or

about a 75 percent chance of obtaining a C or higher in the corresponding credit-bearing college course.” ACT Tom Wurtz statistics inCOMMUNITY clude 100 perRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST cent of high school students to provide an accurate education benchmark. Sounds reasonable. What I found from Kentucky’s Department of Education (DOE) was disturbing, again. I fear Ms. Konz was quoting self-serving data complied by Kentucky’s DOE rather than a respected third party source like ACT. I found a Kentucky report (College Readiness Indicators) that outlined their calculation: “Beginning fall of 2012, all public post secondary institutions in Kentucky will use the following benchmarks as college readiness indicators. Upon admission to a public post secondary institution, students scoring at or above the scores indicated will not be required to complete developmental, supplemental, or transitional coursework and will be allowed entry into college credit-bearing coursework that counts toward de-

gree credit requirements.” Did you catch the brilliant manipulation of data designed to artificially raise Kentucky’s college readiness benchmarks? These word gymnasts are quite impressive. The key phrase is “Upon admission to a public post secondary institution.” The DOE is cleverly eliminating the scores of high school graduates who do not attend or gain admission to college. These students usually have the lower scores. DOE doesn’t count all students like ACT does. They choose to mislead the public by cherry-picking better students. The only difference between now and 2009 is that Kentucky’s academia has cooked the books to achieve a higher required outcome. It’s quite sleazy behavior, but it’s what we expect from publicsector employees today. The losers in this scam are the students who are just pawns to the academia elitists’ pursuit of power, control and tax dollars. In the coming weeks, “educators” will be all over the news championing their brilliance while knowing it’s just another successful scam on taxpayers. Shameful! Tom Wurtz is president of Tom Wurtz Consulting and a resident of Fort Mitchell.

Tackle your faith as you would a sport We took the plunge into tackle football with our 10year-old son this year.

Needless to say, if I wasn’t familiar with football before, I am now. Terminology, plays, equipment – I’ve learned it all in just eight short weeks. I now watch college and professional football games with a whole new appreciation. I understand the calls – well, most of them. I see the fouls – well, some of them. Yet, I cheer and boo with a new perception that makes the game so much more enjoyable. And thank goodness, because I live with two males who can find a game to watch almost every night of the week. This new knowledge has caused me to wonder though:

what would life look like if I invested as much time in my relationship with Christ as I have football recently? How would my life change if I “practiced” my walk three nights a week, reading the “plays” (promises) found in the bible and put them into action on the “field” of life? What would my coming week look like if on Sundays I put all that I’ve learned throughout the week into action and spent the day “playing” (in fellowship) with God and those I love? Well, if the answer is anything like football, it would mean that I would have a whole new appreciation for God and his plans for my life. It would mean that I would “tackle” my problems with a new “play” (approach). It would mean that I would have a whole new outlook on life. To understand God’s ways, promises and plans for my life I must invest in him. So many times we excuse ourselves from investing in our relationship with Christ because we are too busy. We are too busy with work and the extracurricular activities in life. Yet we long to understand God’s plan for us.

Knowing the dangers of football, I would never send my son onto the field without the proper equipment, knowledge and coaching. Knowing the dangers in life, we should not place ourselves (or our children) on the battlefield of life without the proper equipment knowledge, and coaching either. Your equipment is found in the word of God: “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand the wiles of the devil.” (Ephesians 6:11) Your knowledge is found in God: “For the Lord is the God of knowledge.” (1 Samuel 2:3) Your coaching is found in Christ: “Blessed is the man whom you instruct, O Lord, and teach out of your law, that you may give him rest from the days of adversity.” (Psalms 94: 12-13) I pray you find time to “practice” your walk with Christ this week and be blessed with a big win.

Warm up with dinner rolls, pot pie

Dairy-free, cholesterol-free, low-fat dinner rolls Don’t be squeamish about the ingredients here. Powdered creamer is used by more than a few bakers to achieve a nice-tasting, dairy-free dinner roll. Check out the

Shillito’s individual chicken pot pie

With the chilly weather soon to be upon us, I knew I’d get requests for this favorite pot pie. You can buy pearl onions frozen and just pour out what you need. ⁄8 cup frozen peas 3 ⁄4 cup frozen sliced carrots 6 cooked pearl onions 1 ⁄2 cup (3 oz.) diced cooked chicken, cut 1/2- to 3/4-inch chunks 3 ⁄4 cup sauce 1 oz. to 2 oz. pastry, to cover pie 1

photo of the batch I made. They taste as good as they look. The diabetic exRita change is Heikenfeld 11/2 starch, 1/2 fat for RITA’S KITCHEN each roll. You can do this by hand or machine. 1 tablespoon rapid-rise yeast plus a couple pinches sugar (don’t use regular active yeast) 21⁄4 cups warm water (110-115 degrees) 1 ⁄3 cup sugar 1 ⁄3 shortening 1 ⁄4 cup powdered non-dairy creamer 21⁄4 teaspoons salt 5-6 cups bread flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dissolve yeast and pinches of sugar in

warm water. In a mixing bowl, add sugar, shortening, creamer, salt and 5 cups flour. Add yeast and mix well on low speed. Turn to medium and beat until smooth. Add more flour if necessary to make a soft, but sticky dough. Either knead it for 6-8 minutes by machine or by hand. If doing by hand, turn out on floured surface. Knead until smooth, like a baby’s bottom. Place in bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat top. Cover and let rise until doubled, about one hour. Punch down and turn out onto lightly floured surface; divide into 18 to 24 pieces. Shape each piece into a roll. Place two inches apart on sprayed baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, 30-45 minutes. Bake for 15-20 minutes or

until golden brown.

Cook frozen peas and carrots and drain. Put chicken into small casserole and add veggies. Pour sauce over and bake at 350 degrees until bubbly. Serve with pastry top over casserole dish. (I’m assuming you bake the pastry separate). Makes one pie.

Melt margarine, add flour and mix well. Add stock, cook and stir until creamy. Add pepper.

Tips from readers’ kitchens

Key lime cake glaze: Dot, an Erlanger reader, made the yummy key lime cake published, but said the glaze was runny and too intensely flavored for her palate. Next time she’ll use two cups powdered sugar and start with two tablespoons lime juice and two tablespoons water and go from there.

MOTCH Since 1857



I’ve told you before how this column “connects” all of us. There’s not a week that goes by that I don’t hear from someone telling me about a new recipe they’ve tried, or a treasured one they want to share. It’s all about food, family and friends. Laurie Bredenfoerder’s story about her homemade lasagna is one of those priceless gems. After she read my recipe for easy lasagna using no-cook lasagna noodles, she told me it’s not so bad to use the no-cook noodles, but “They may be hard to find or more costly than the mundane ones. If so, I can do much better.” Laurie sent me her recipe for her family’s favorite, which she has been making for 25-plus years using any kind of lasagna noodle right out of the box. She’s never had a problem with using them and her lasagna turns out perfect, every time. “Great for a large gathering and this may well be the perfect lasagna recipe. It’s a legend in our family”, she said. Unfortunately, the recipe is too long to share here so I’ll put it on my blog. But don’t let that hold you back. I can’t wait to try Laurie’s recipe and I want you to try it, too.

Blue Ash company Now is time to ready your winter squash sued by state A company I reported on earlier this year has been sued by the state of Ohio for, among other things, taking advantage of elderly and low-income people. Queen City Script Care, of Blue Ash, was to provide discounted prescription medication to those in need, but is being accused of making unauthorized withdrawals from consumer’s bank accounts and failing to provide refunds. Back in February, I reported on the complaints I received from many of the company’s customers. People like Krystal Beckelhimer, of Georgetown, who said, “The company worked good for about two months. I got my medicine, paid $30, and then all of a sudden I wasn’t getting any medicine and he basically said, “’Well, it’s on the way.’” Beckelhimer had complained to company owner Tom Fenske, but says she was still charged $30 monthly even though she wasn’t getting her medicine. Then, she says, Queen City Script Care took multiple charges out of her bank account in the same month. Ruth Hill of Versailles also had multiple payments taken from her bank account. “The problem started when there were four

withdrawals in May,” she says. Her husband, Clarence, was paying the company Howard $40 a Ain month and HEY HOWARD! also had multiple withdrawals from his account in one month. Missing medicine and multiple withdrawals were also big problems for Betty Goodman of Georgetown, who complained to Fenske. “One month he took out $30 from my checking account six times. I went to the bank three times to stop the payments,” she said. Goodman is also upset because they kept taking money for medicine for her husband Larry – months after he died. “I kept calling the office and saying, ‘Why are you taking money for Larry? He’s dead, he’s not getting no medicine.’” Many consumers said they only way they stopped those payments was to close their bank account. Queen City Script Care President Tom Fenske wouldn’t do an interview with me, but told me all money withdrawn by mistake was being refunded. However, the Ohio At-

torney General’s office says it has 20 unresolved complaints against the business totaling $7,141.18. In the lawsuit, the business and owners Thomas Fenske and Theresa Fenske are charged with multiple violations of the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act. The suit seeks restitution for consumers, injunctive relief, civil penalties, and other costs. Attorney General Mike DeWine says other consumers have been affected and he wants those who have been treated unfairly to file a complaint with his office at 800-282-0515. DeWine says, “With the upcoming heath care changes, we will continue to watch for businesses that make misleading claims about health care services.” There really is a program to help patients get free or discounted medications. It is run by the pharmaceutical companies and eligible consumers can apply for patient assistance for free. Many nonprofits offer help for no charge.

Winter squash is appearing in local markets. In addition to the familiar pumpkin, there are other varieties that come in many shapes and colors. Winter squash has a tough outer rind, or skin, that is removed prior to eating. The many varieties can be baked, steamed, boiled or microwaved. Recipes featuring winter squash range from appetizers to desserts. Winter squash is a wonderful source of beta-carotene. Betacarotene may reduce the risk of some types of cancer. It is also rich in nutrients associated with eye health and reduced risk of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. Pick winter squash that is heavy for its size with few or no blemishes or soft spots. It is best if the stem is attached. The flesh of one variety of winter squash may be substituted for another in most recipes. Scrub the outer surfaces of winter squash with a stiff brush and plenty of clean water prior to

cutting or cooking. To easily make winter squash puree, cut the squash into large Diane pieces. Mason Remove EXTENSION the seeds NOTES and fibrous matter. Place in the oven at 400 degrees for as much as an hour, or until the flesh is tender. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for easy handling. Scrape the flesh from the skin. Large pieces may also be steamed in a basket or rack in a large pan with 1-2 inches of boiling water. Cover the pan tightly and steam for 30-40 minutes. Cooked squash may be stored for up to five days in the refrigerator. It will keep frozen for up to a year. Try the following Plate it Up Kentucky Proud recipe featuring winter squash. Plate it Up Kentucky Proud is a partnership project between the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension

Service, the Kentucky Department of Agriculture and the University of Kentucky School of Human Environmental Sciences. Visit

Fundraiser helps bring warmth By Amanda Hopkins Recorder Contributor

It started 10 years ago with just six women knitting scarves for the needy. Now Scarf It Up For Those In Need is looking to provide almost 10,000 scarves this winter to needy people in the greater Cincinnati area. Tammy Simpson, the executive director of Scarf It Up and CEO of its parent organization Shoulder to Shoulder Inc, said they will provide scarves, hats and gloves to 64 agencies in Northern Kentucky and have also begun working with the Freestore Foodbank and St. Vincent de Paul in Cincinnati. Scarf It Up For Those In Need is in its10th year and Simpson said it just keeps growing.

“This was really a hobby that became a passion that has turned into a ministry,” Simpson said. Simpson has been knitting for many years and most of her family and friends already have their own scarves. “Now I can make scarves for people that really need them,” she said. All scarves distributed through Scarf It Up are handmade and created by one of hundreds of volunteers. The fundraiser helps the group to provide gloves and hats to go with the scarves. The biggest event for the group is the upcoming Handbag Event at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28, at Receptions on Donaldson Road in Erlanger. Tickets are $25 and in-

clude lunch, a musical performance by the band Rucca, door prizes, a designer purse pick one with $100 inside and a Chinese auction for 50 baskets worth $100 each. Brand name purses will also be sold at prices ranging from $5 to $50. Simpson said the event is crucial to Scarf It Up For Those in Need because it funds about 60 percent of the gloves and hats that are distributed. This year, the group is also working to raise an extra $5,000 to buy warmer gloves. Simpson said she is proud of how the community has gotten involved with donations of time, money and scarves. “Sometimes the hats, gloves and scarves are the only things keeping children warm at night,” Simpson said.

Sixty-five percent of the donations are distributed to children and Newport and Covington schools. For more information on Scarf It Up for Those in Need or Shoulder to Shoulder visit the group’s Facebook page or the new website at For tickets to the Handbag Event on Saturday, Sept. 28, or for volunteer opportunities, contact Tammy Simpson at 859-802-4881.

Want a better lawn? Fertilize now Question: What is the best lawn fertilizer, and when and how often should it be applied? Answer: Too much nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium or lime can be harmful to your lawn and landscape plants. Soil testing is a free service provided to Northern Kentucky residents by their local county extension office. A soil test often reveals that the soil only needs nitrogen, in which case you can purchase a cheaper, “farmtype” fertilizer, such as urea (46-0-0). Or, you may find that your soil is high in phosphorus (the middle number on the fertilizer bag), but it needs nitrogen and potassium (the first and third numbers on the fertilizer bag), so a 10-0-10 fertilizer would be ideal. The only way to know what numbers to look for as you are buying fertilizer is to look at the results of your soil test. If your ground tests low in phosphorus, you’ll want to select a fertilizer with a high middle number, such as 10-20-10. If you catch and remove the grass clippings from the yard when you mow, you may need to apply more phosphorus and potassium to the soil, since the clippings contain nutrients. To maintain a quality lawn, you should apply fertilizer every year. Fertilization helps maintain turf uniformity, a good green color, and reduces weed problems. These positive effects can be lost, however, if fertilizer is applied improperly or at the wrong time. Too much or too little fertilizer can result in more lawn

disease problems and brown patches. Low and medium maintenance levels are best Mike for general Klahr lawns that HORTICULTURE get little or CONCERNS no summer irrigation. High and very high maintenance levels can produce a lush, green lawn, but usually require irrigation, frequent mowing, and often more pest control. Low-maintenance, cool-season lawns (fescues, bluegrass and perennial ryegrass) only get fertilized once a year, in October or November. Medium maintenance involves two fertilizations per year, with one in September or October, and a follow-up treatment six weeks later in November or December. Don’t apply fertilizer during hot weather to

dry lawns. Fertilize after a rain or irrigation has soaked the ground, and after the leaf blades have dried from rain or dew. High maintenance lawns need treated once in September/October, again in October/November, and a third time in November or December, always keeping 4-6 weeks between treatments. A “very high” maintenance level would be the result of also applying an additional (fourth) fertilizer treatment in the spring. If this is done, only half the normal (fall) rate should be applied in late May to help “green up” the grass, if desired. Don’t miss the fall window of opportunity for fertilizing your lawn. Waiting until spring to fertilize will mean more weeds, diseases and pests next year.
