Erlanger to sue Kenton Co. Rouse questions legality of 911 fee By Libby Cunningham

ERLANGER — Erlanger City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to pursue a lawsuit against Kenton County Fiscal Court regarding a parcel fee that will pay for emergency dispatching services residents in Erlanger can’t use. “There are many people who

don’t believe this method of revenue collection chosen by the county is legal,” said Erlanger Mayor Tom Rouse. Rouse is talking about an $85 parcel fee Kenton County residents have received on property tax bills which funds Kenton County Dispatch. Two emergency dispatch centers serve the county, the other being Erlanger’s. Rouse said it isn’t fair for residents to pay for services they can’t even use. Currently the cities under Erlanger’s dispatch – Bromley, Crescent Springs,

Crestview Hills, Edgewood, Elsmere, Fort Wright, Fort Mitchell, Lakeside Park, Ludlow and Villa Hills – are also paying $4.25 on Cincinnati Bell Rouse land-line telephone bills for emergency dispatch services. The county is also asking the cities served by Erlanger to contact Cincinnati Bell and ask them to drop the 911 fee from their

phone bills. Rouse says it’s illegal for several reasons, including taxation. “(They’re) charging people a service fee for a service they’re not (using,)” Rouse said. “A service Erlanger and Elsmere can’t receive until 2013.” Crescent Springs has discussed with Rouse the possibility of joining the suit. “At this time, Crescent Springs has not agreed to file a lawsuit (against Kenton Fiscal Court),” Collett said. “I have discussed this issue with (Erlanger)

Mayor Tom Rouse and I indicated that we are interested in pursuing it. However, council has not taken the necessary steps to do so at this point in time.” The issue of whether the city of Crescent Springs should join in Erlanger’s planned lawsuit is expected to be discussed at a special meeting of Crescent Springs City Council that will be called for Monday night, Collett said. Calls to Kenton County Judgeexecutive Steve Arlinghaus for comment were not immediately returned.

Koeppe family opening Steinhaus By Nancy Daly

ELSMERE — Remember the

German deli on Dixie Highway with the slogan out front “Ooh Mama ... Das ist gut!”? Well, it’s back. At least the slogan is. Karen and Detlef Koeppe, who operated the German Cuisine deli featuring sausages and cold cuts until 2007, are opening what they consider fulfillment of a dream. Steinhaus, a sit-down restaurant and banquet hall featuring

German and other menu offerings, opens Saturday at 6415 Dixie Highway. Workers are busy this week completing a major renovation of the building, which after the closing of German Cuisine housed a Mexican restaurant and offices for the Koeppes’ other business interests. “This is a dream come true we’re manifesting,” Karen Koeppe said. “We have always wanted to do something in the food industry.” Her husband, Detlef, brought knowledge of German cooking from his native Deutschland. After moving here he’d talk with his mother by phone to get more recipes.

(His mother also recommended bringing master butcher Stefan Neumann to German Cuisine. Neumann, who now works at Brooks Meats in Walton, will provide some products for Steinhaus.) “Every time we would cook a meal at home that was exceptional one of us would say we could see this in a restaurant,” Karen Koeppe said. Rouladen ohne Gherkin (rouladen without pickles) and braised rabbit are among Detlef Koeppe’s specialties. There will be all kinds of schnitzels plus a variety of other cuisine including prime steaks.

ing floor plan for Steinhaus restaurant. Upon entering, visitors will see a large mural of a Rhine River scene on the left, and wooden cubbies for the Stein Club on the right. The Koeppes are taking applications from stein owners who’d like to join the club and have their steins displayed. But don’t get the idea Steinhaus will have a German beer hall atmosphere. Using feng shui concepts, the restaurant curves to the Gnome’s Garden with banquette seating and granite tables. “From the entrance is a pathway that leads you to the Gratitude Circle because every aspect of your life you should be grateful for,” she said. The partitioned Gratitude Circle will seat 22-24 for semi-private events. The bar area includes repurposing of a favorite

wall mural from the German Cuisine days. Based on a photograph of a castle by their daughter Maranda Horine, artist Joan Ogle painted it and now-deceased brother Brian Trudeau did the surrounding stone work around a castle scene. “This whole mural is extremely precious to me,” Karen Koeppe said. Florence artists Keith and Margaret Klein are installing their work in an art gallery section. It will feature local artists rotating out every four to six weeks. The Koeppes, who live in Villa Hills, are using local vendors wherever possible, including J.C. Upholstery, Deer Park Roofing and Jack’s Glass from nearby Elsmere and Erlanger. “When people see the inside they’re going to be really surprised,” said Chris Speeg, restaurant and banquet sales manager.

Park Hills Police donate cruiser to Bracken By Amy Scalf

PARK HILLS — The Bracken County Sheriff got some backup from the Park Hills Police Department. On Oct. 10, Park Hills Police Chief Cody Stanley handed Bracken County Sheriff Howard Niemeier the keys to a 2004 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor with 92,000 miles on it. Donating the surplus car was an easy decision for Stanley, and was approved by Mayor Don Catchen and supported by city council members during meetings.

“We weren’t going to get much money by selling the car, and I had heard at the police academy about other departments who didn’t have money for cars. Why not give it to someone who could use it?” said Stanley. “It’s a goodwill gesture, helping a fellow police department.” Catchen said the city has paid $24,514.20 each for four new Dodge Chargers this year. Two were purchased when the Park Hills Police Department took over patrols in nearby Bromley, and two were purchased with budget savings. “We’ve saved a ton of money. Cody has really

tightened the police department’s belt, and I question every penny that gets spent. If I don’t know where it’s going, it doesn’t go,” said Catchen. “Bracken County was in need of a car. Now, these cars don’t bring very much at the auctions, maybe $1,500 or $2,000. We felt it was more advantageous to give it to someone who needed it. It’s still a decent car.” Catchen said the police equipment on the Fords is not transferable to the Dodge cars, and the equipment isn’t worth much at resale, either. Niemeier, who retired from Newport Police in 2010, said his department

Bracken County Sheriff Howard Niemeier, Park Hills Police Chief Cody Stanley and Bracken County Chief Deputy Bob Scott stand together with the patrol car Park Hills donated to Bracken County. AMY SCALF/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER has five Crown Vics to be used by five full-time and one part-time officers. He said the donated car would be shared by the current part-time officer and one

he hopes to hire in the near future. Niemeier drives the department’s silver Ford Explorer. Niemeier said Bracken County covers about 270

Tournament helps wounded veterans

FLORENCE — A day at the ballpark is a chance to help veterans. The Florence Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 33 is hosting an Oct. 27 wiffle ball tournament to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. The tournament had its start when officers Matt Day and Les Moore were talking about the causes their FOP supports. “We realized we don’t really do anything for veterans,” Day said. They remembered that Florence is a Purple Heart City that is honored for the way it treats veterans, and it was strange that the police weren’t helping in the effort, he said.

“It seems like we should,” Day said. With Day being a veteran of the Marines and Moore losing his father in the Vietnam War, veterans affairs is an issue close to both of them, and the Wounded Warrior Project has helped a lot of people both of them care about, Day said. The Wounded Warrior Project works to raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, help injured service members aid and assist each other and provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members. “The Wounded Warrior Project is something that’s near to my heart,” Day said.

The FOP plans to use all profits from the wiffle ball tournament to make a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project. “Even if you’re not playing, there’s going to be raffle items,” Day said. The tournament will be Saturday, Oct. 27, at the Florence Freedom Field. For more information or to register, email

square miles and has a population of 8,200, including the cities of Augusta and Brooksville. It’s just less than 50 miles southeast of Park Hills. “Right now, if we use a part-time person, we have to get a car from a full-time officer,” said Niemeier. He said having the officers switch cars is inconvenient. “We’re very appreciative that they were able to do this for us,” said Niemeier. “Being a small county, funds are limited. It’s very helpful to have people step up and support us like this.”

Attorney says Villa Hills mayor retaliating By Libby Cunningham

VILLA HILLS — When Villa Hills Mayor Mike Martin called a special Civil Service Commission meeting Tuesday night to determine the fate of the assistant city clerk’s job, it was an act of retaliation, the employee’s attorney

says. It’s not the first time Martin’s retaliated against Kim Robbins, the assistant city clerk in Villa Hills, said Barbara Bonar, Robbins’ attorney. “There’s so much more to this,” Bonar said. “... And we believe that this charge that he filed against her was a continuing retalia-

tion. That’s what we have already notified the city that we believe Ms. Robbins is being retaliated against and we are looking at the option of bringing a civil suit based on that retaliation.” Robbins has notified authorities of alleged illegal actions Martin has taken and complained of sexual

harassment, Bonar said, and that’s why Bonar thinks he is retaliating. The attorney says Martin is trying to scare Robbins out of testifying against him at his removal hearing scheduled for Oct. 22. “That’s what he was doing, he was attempting to intimidate her, attempting to discourage her from testifying,” Bonar said. Martin didn’t attend the meeting he called, which was scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9. Members of the Civil Service Commission seemed surprised by his absence, as Martin was there to set up but wasn’t in the building when the hearing started. The commission elected to proceed without him at about 7:05 p.m. After more than three hours of closed session Civil Service Commissioners voted to suspend Robbin’s employment for 10 working days without pay. She is to be reinstated on Oct. 18 to her position. “We wanted termina-

tion, we didn’t get it,” said Bob Winter, an attorney who was hired to represent Villa Hills in the hearing. Robbins was initially supposed to be tried on charges of disorderly conduct, alcohol intoxication and terroristic threatening for a June 6 incident. Those charges were dropped after Robbins completed diversion. On Oct. 2 Robbins was arrested by the Kenton County Police on a warrant and was charged with failing to report to work because she was in handcuffs outside of the building. The officers picked her up on pending fraud charges from 2009. She was arrested soon after Phil Taliaferro, an attorney hired by the Villa Hills City Council to investigate Martin, came to the Villa Hills City Building to speak to her and other employees to gather testimony for the mayor’s removal hearing. Taliaferro’s visit that day concluded with a fiery phone exchange between the mayor and him. Robbins’ punishment is

based on charges Martin brought against her alleging she violated a law, was absent without leave, had unauthorized tardiness and was absent from duty without appropriate permission. These charges were discussed during the closed session portion of the meeting. Winter, city attorney for Park Hills, said he’s not sure if he’ll pursue the matter with Robbins any further. The mayor returned to the Villa Hills City Council Chambers to clean up after the hearing, and said he couldn’t comment on what happened during the hearing because he wasn’t there. His attorney then asked him to let communication with the media go through him. Martin doesn’t have to be at meetings he calls even if it’s regarding the termination of an employee he’s bringing charges against, Winter said. Visit for more community news

Dispatch, zoning top concerns Eight candidates on Edgewood ballot By Libby Cunningham

EDGEWOOD — City Council candidates in Edgewood are concerned about 911 dispatch fees, advanced life support services and zoning this election season. Eight candidates are running for seven seats in Edgewood, with seven incumbents and two new faces vying for a spot. Joe Messmer, incumbent and former Edgewood fire chief, says he’s knowledgeable about the 911 dispatch and advanced life support service decisions. “I just can’t seem to do enough, I guess you could say currently we are with the dispatching thing that’s going on and the fact that Edgewood is now looking at going to paramedic service on our own,” he said of









the city’s biggest problems. Incumbent candidate Jeff Schreiver agrees. “The biggest issue we are facing right now is our advanced life support that we really are considering putting on ourselves,” he said.

Richard Rigsby decided to run for Edgewood City Council after Ray Spears stepped down. He’s still on the fence about how the city should handle emergency dispatch services, which he said is the biggest problem the city is facing.

“It would have to be the decision they’re trying to make as far as our 911 system, whether or not we are going to stay with Erlanger or go with Kenton County,” he said. Currently Edgewood receives 911 dispatch services from Erlanger, but Kenton County Fiscal Court is encouraging cities under Erlanger to switch to a countywide unified dispatch system. Other candidates are concerned about zoning in the city. “Long-term I think one of the challenges we have to face will be maintaining the level of services we provide to our residents,” said incumbent Steven Jaeger. “... From a tax base, we don’t have a lot of room for additional development in Edgewood, we are kind of landlocked.” Incumbent Dale Henson said because the city is built out changes will have to be made. “Well, you know I think that

Edgewood is coming to a critical point in that we are pretty much built out,” he said. “We are now going to be faced with ways of looking to be more efficient with our delivery of service.” Still others are focused on maintaining the quality of life in Edgewood. “(I’m) looking out for the planning and the zoning and all the stuff of this area which is important to us,” said Nancy Atkinson, an incumbent. Candidate Anthony Ward has similar sentiments. “Because I’ve lived in this city all of my life and just want to make sure the city continues to be the city I was brought up in and lived in and continues in this direction,” he said. Incumbent candidate Chris Link was contacted but did not return calls for the story by press time. Visit for more community news.

Nine are running Eyes on economics, resident needs in Lakeside Park By Libby Cunningham

By Amy Scalf

LAKESIDE PARK — Nine people have lined up for their shot at one of six council seats in Lakeside Park, a city smaller than a square mile with a population of approximately 2,800. Council member John Rhodes opted not to run again, citing his appreciation for term limits. “I’ve had two terms. That’s enough,” said Rhodes. Incumbent Andrew Disken, who has lived in Lakeside Park 14 years, is finishing his first council term. Disken said he sees two challenges for city leadership: neighborhood safety and tax rates. “We’ve had too many breakins, not houses but cars. It seems to happen quite regularly,” Disken said. Frank Edelen Jr. served on council from 1988 to 2000. Since then, he has been on the board of zoning adjustments. He would like to see a sidewalk added “to at least one side of Turkeyfoot Road. I see it as needed for safety because there’s no shoulder there.” Kevin Esmeier is making his first run for local office and hopes to improve the city’s communication with residents. “We do have a newsletter for residents, but we have a lot of opportunities with the Internet. I’d really like to improve that,” said Esmeier. “Fortunately, we sit very well financially.” It’s also the first political entry for Dennis Landwehr, who said he has three priorities for the city. “We need to maintain the city property values and services while keeping an eye on the budget. That’s what a council person does,” he said. David Leonard has served on council before. He said he was elected and served for six months in 1992, but had to resign because he moved. He wants to run again because he has “more time to dedicate to the city.” Leonard wants to make sure the city’s west side is represented. Incumbent Paul Markgraf, running for his fifth term, said, “The city’s biggest challenge is to generate adequate funding to keep police, fire, maintenance going well. Keep property tax the same with conservative fiscal policies.” Incumbent Aimee Pelletier is concerned about the city’s limited revenue base. “All of our revenue comes from homeowners,” said Pelle-









tier. “As years go on, funding for police, fire, 911, and roads become more expensive. We need to keep our tax base Wolfer high enough to keep providing the best possible services.” Incumbent Frank Smith has served as a councilman four times and mayor twice during his 24 years in the city. He also has a similar track record in Crestview Hills. Smith said he left military service and got involved in his community because he still had something to give. Smith said he is “concerned about the infrastructure of the city and the taxes we pay.” Incumbent David Wolfer is finishing his second term and has lived in Lakeside Park 15 years. He said he was inspired to “get involved for the betterment of our community.” Wolfer’s main concern is “the upkeep of our city streets,” he said. “Which, by the way, we are doing.” Visit for more community news

ELSMERE — All eyes are on economics and resident needs for the Elsmere City Council race. Six seats are up for grabs this election, with six incumbents trying for another term and three candidates trying to snatch a spot. Joanne Barnett-Smith, an incumbent, said she’s running for office again because she still has more to accomplish. “I want to make sure people’s words get heard,” she said. “I know they are upset about their taxes, the 911 (fees.) Former Mayor Billy Bradford is also running for another term and says he thinks the current street program is going well. He says he’s running again because he likes being a part of Elsmere. “I enjoy the work, I need something to do something too,” he said. “I enjoy being part of the community and doing what I can.” Being a voice of the people is important to incumbent candidate Mary Lou Neal. More businesses and economic development are on the agenda for incumbent candidate Alexis Tanner, who is up for reelection. “We are looking to raise revenues by bringing businesses into (the) industrial park,” Tanner said. City improvements are of interest to incumbent Gloria Grubbs, who says the city’s been moved in a positive direction. “We have a new city administrator whom we are hopeful will

Neal Owen bring in some new economic development and I’d like to be part of that,” Grubbs said. “It just seems like there was no voice for our community,” Neal said. “I’ve got a big mouth and God gave me a great brain and I use it for the best for our community.” Of the new faces to the council race, many of them are familiar with the city. Nancy Bowman has served on City Council and worked for Elsmere. “I’ve been involved with the city for most of my life and I’m very aware of how a city should operate,” Bowman said. In the last mayoral election, she ran for mayor against current mayor

Marty Lenhof. Candidate Serena Owen wants to focus on community relations in Elsmere, she said. “My desire Bradford and goal is to listen to and diligently work to help meet the needs of our residents,” she said. “Like assisting to meet our city’s need Grubbs for TANK (Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky) accommodations and assist with helping to meet the needs of our youth Tanner transitioning into adulthood and the work force ...” Police officer and former Police Chief Timothy Greene decided to throw his hat into the ring this election season because he thinks council could use a new face. “There’s a lot of great people in this city and sometimes I don’t think they get recognized,” Greene said. “So I guess I’m running for them, you know.” Greene’s daughter, Kam , is an incumbent city council member who is running for re-election. Kama could not return calls to The Community Recorder by press time due to a family emergency.

Dems won’t throw in the towel By Scott Wartman

While many have already conceded Kentucky to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, local Democrats still see merit in campaigning for President Barack Obama in Kentucky. Kentucky Democrats say they hope to combat the view that Kentucky is becoming more Republican with get-outthe-vote efforts and outreach to youth groups in Kentucky, where Obama in the primary received only 58 percent of the Democratic vote and “uncommitted” received 42 percent. Many Kentucky Dems have volunteered on Obama’s campaign across the Ohio River, but

some will stay in Kentucky to go door-to-door and send out mailers, said Col Owens, Kenton County Democratic chairman. On Oct. 15, all of the top Democratic state constitutional office holders, including Gov. Steve Beshear, visited Northern Kentucky to raise money and rally the base at a dinner at Northern Kentucky University. “There’s a conventional wisdom that they should go to Ohio to work because it’s a swing state,” Owens said. “I feel very strongly that we have to have a strategy directed toward the immediate election, but we also have to work to the future.” Democrats must convince voters like Virginia Hultman that they can have an impact na-

tionally by volunteering in a “red state” like Kentucky. Hultman, 28, of Covington, on Oct. 11 gathered with other Democrats to watch the vice presidential debate at a Covington bar. “When I lived in North Carolina, I felt incentive to participate because I felt like maybe I could make a difference, maybe I could make a change. Now, living in Kentucky, I feel like my involvement doesn’t make a difference, that Kentucky is going to be red with or without my help,” Hultman said. “So to actively mobilize feels like not a good use of my time, but my hope is that there would be an active party that someday I could join and get engaged on a local level.”

Panda runners peak in homestretch

By James Weber

Amy Hansen’s senior season had been having as many ups and downs as a typical cross country course. The Notre Dame Academy senior is on top of the hill now after winning the individual championship in the Northern Kentucky Athletic Conference meet Oct. 10 at Scott High School. She set a personal record of 19 minutes, 21.2 seconds to win the race. The Pandas needed every fraction of a second, as Hansen edged Highlands Molly Mearns at the finish line to give Notre Dame a one-point win over Highlands. “The team did well. We had a great race,” Hansen said. “We’ve been struggling a little bit the last couple of weeks. We’ve been great in practice but not been performing as well in the meets. Senior Skyler Green was sixth, junior Sydney Lenhof seventh, junior Katie Schweitzer eighth and junior Olivia Kuykendall 14th to round out the five team scorers. Schweitzer beat a Highlands runner by 2.7 seconds


Notre Dame Academy runner Amy Hansen led the pack with a turn to go in the Ryle Invitational meet earlier this season. GREG LORING/FOR THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

in another key homestretch battle. NDA head coach Barry Hudepohl said most of the Pandas set personal bests in the race. “We knew it would take everybody to have their best day to

beat Highlands,” he said. “They pushed us to run with extra incentive. We won this for the seventh year in a row. They didn’t want to be the team to lose it.” NDA is a rare girls cross country team to prosper with a lot of upperclassmen. “We were really patient,” Hudepohl said. “A lot of the other teams have a lot of young girls and our team is all juniors and seniors, and our girls ran really smart. We were way behind halfway through the race and we started picking them off. Our girls don’t get freaked out when they get behind early. They have 20 minutes and that’s plenty of time to move up.” Hansen, the 2011 regional champion in Class 3A, had a midseason slump but is now looking to defend her personal regional title Nov. 3 and help the Pandas win the team crown again. “This was a big lift for us,” she said. “It’s important right now and our coaches’ plan is really paying off.” Follow James on Twitter @RecorderWeber.

Young players help Crusaders in title bid By James Weber

Kendyll Kraus is being groomed to become the next setter/hitter for the St. Henry District High School volleyball team. The sophomore is already doing well at those roles in her first year as a starter, as she helped the Crusaders win the 34th District championship Oct. 10. St. Henry beat Lloyd and Villa Madonna 3-0 in the tournament, allowing no more than 14 points in any of the six sets. St. Henry takes a 29-8 record into the Ninth Region Tournament, which will be on the St. Henry home court.

“It’s a great opportunity heading into regionals,” Kraus said. “It gives us a lot of confidence. We played really well and we had a lot of fun.” Kraus was named to the alltourney team after getting seven assists and an ace in the final. She has been an understudy to St. Henry senior standout Rachel Fortner, who will play setter for the University of Dayton next year. Unlike understudies on Broadway, Kraus is on the floor in action most of the time. Kraus and Fortner split the setter duties depending on which one is aligned in the back row in the ro-

tation, with the other playing a key role in the offense on the front row. “It’s a lot of responsibility, especially for next year,” Kraus said. “Right now, I can rely on Rachel and learn a lot from her. She helps me with anything. She’ll give me suggestions on what to work on. I love setting.” Fortner was the most valuable player of the tourney and had 13 assists in the final, and freshman Janelle Tobler was all-tourney after seven kills against VMA.

Plenty at stake in area football By James Weber

District titles were decided in five of six Northern Kentucky football groupings last week. The battle for seeding in the districts is still vibrant, however, especially the fights for the precious two seed and first-round home game. Here is a look at the standings and scenarios heading into the final week of district games. Here’s the yearly disclaimer: A two-way tie is broken by head-tohead result. A three-way tie involves strength of victory, adding up the win totals of the best four teams you have beaten who are not also in the tie. District games can count. 6A: Campbell County 3-0, 5-3; Simon Kenton 2-2, 7-2; Ryle 1-2, 3-5; Boone County 1-2, 1-7; Dixie Heights 1-2, 2-6. Campbell County has won the district title. The two seed will either be won by SK or Dixie. If Boone beats Campbell, SK easily wins a three-way tie for second. The fifth seed will move to District 2 in the brackets and will play a western Louisville school from District 3 in the first round.

The other four will play District 8, one of the Lexington groupings. Boone plays Campbell and Ryle plays Dixie this week. Here are the scenarios: Campbell and Ryle win: SK is the two, Ryle three, Boone four, Dixie five. Campbell and Dixie win: Dixie is two, SK three, Ryle four, Boone five. Boone and Ryle win: SK is two and Dixie five. Ryle would have nine points and Boone seven including their Oct. 19 wins and both teams play teams with 8-0 records in their final games. Boone and Dixie win: SK is two and Ryle five. Dixie would have nine points and Boone five counting their Oct. 19 wins. Dixie plays Cooper (7-1) in the final game and Boone plays John Hardin (8-0). 5A: South Oldham 3-1, 6-2; Cooper 2-1, 7-1; Conner 2-1, 6-2; Scott 1-2, 4-4;Grant County 0-3, 3-5. Grant plays Cooper and Conner plays Scott. Cooper and Conner win: Cooper, Conner and South Oldham will tie for first and that tiebreaker could go down to the final snaps on Oct. 26. All three teams would be within a few points of each oth-

er following play on Oct. 19 with South Oldham likely to be leading. Cooper and Scott win: Cooper wins, Scott is third and Conner

fourth. Grant and Conner win: South Oldham wins, Conner is second, Cooper third and Scott fourth. Grant and Scott win: South Oldham wins. Conner, Cooper and Scott would tie for second, with Cooper having an edge in the tiebreaker because the Jags could count their win over South Oldham. 4A: Highlands 4-0, 8-0; Covington Catholic 2-1, 6-2; Holmes 2-1, 5-3; Pendleton County 0-3, 1-7; Harrison County 0-3, 0-8. Highlands has won the district title. Cov Cath and Holmes play off for the two seed this Friday. 2A, District 5: Walton-Verona 4-0, 6-2; Owen County 2-1, 4-4; Carroll County 1-2, 5-3; Gallatin County 1-2, 5-3; Trimble County 0-3, 1-7. Walton-Verona has won the district title. 2A, District 6: NewCath 3-0, 5-3; Lloyd 2-1, 6-2; Holy Cross 2-1, 3-5; Newport 1-2, 3-6; Brossart 0-4, 1-7. If NewCath beats Holy Cross this Thursday, NCC wins the title outright. If not, Holy Cross wins unless Lloyd beats Newport, then there’s a three-way tie at the top,

which Lloyd is likely to win. If NCC and Newport win, there’s a three-way tie at second which Lloyd would also have a big advantage in. 1A: Beechwood 2-0, 5-3; Dayton 1-1, 3-5; Bellevue 1-1, 4-4; Ludlow 0-2, 1-7. Beechwood has clinched the district title and top seed and Ludlow will be the four seed. The Bellevue/Dayton winner gets the two seed and a first-round home game.

Results from last week

» Beechwood beat Dayton 5420. Beechwood plays at Ludlow 7 p.m. Friday. » Covington Catholic beat Harrison County 61-0. Cov Cath plays at Holmes 7 p.m. Friday. » Dixie Heights beat Simon Kenton 21-15 and plays at Ryle 7:30 p.m. Friday. » Holy Cross beat Brossart 59-9. HC hosts NewCath 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18. Note it is a Thursday contest at Scott High School. » Lloyd was off and hosts Newport 7 p.m. Friday. » Scott lost 47-21 to South Oldham and hosts Conner 7 p.m. Friday.

Crusader runners learning how to win By James Weber

Taylor Connett made a tough choice to go from one powerhouse fall program at St. Henry District High School to another. The girls cross country team is reaping the benefits, as the junior led the Crusaders to their latest championship in the Northern Kentucky Athletic Conference meet Oct. 10 at Scott High School. St. Henry scored 27 points to 62 for runner-up Bishop Brossart. “We had some girls who ran well last week at the Diocese meet and ran well again today,” said St. Henry head coach Tony Harden. “I think they’re starting to figure it out a little bit. I’m proud of the team. They just have to keep doing it.” Connett finished third individually, leading a line of Crusaders to the finish, as Sam Hentz was fourth, Holly Blades fifth and Libby Anneken sixth. Senior Abbey Doellman finished ninth to round out the team scoring. Ten Crusaders finished in the top 24 in the race. “We didn’t have anybody who had a bad race,” Harden said. “Those girls fought and they knew the team goal was to win. I told them we needed all 10 and they really showed up.”

Connett, a former soccer player, has been the leading Crusader at several races this fall after playing a role on the St. Henry track team in the spring. “Taylor played soccer the first two years and she ran track for me and I finally persuaded her into coming out for cross country,” Harden said. “She’s having a great career for us so far and she’s still learning. Every race she learns something new. She’s trying to learn and become a

smart runner and not just go on pure ability.” The St. Henry boys team won again at conference as well, scoring 39 points to 67 for Brossart. Daniel Wolfer was second, Josh Hannon seventh, Michael Ridilla ninth, Andrew Smith 10th and Robert Brockman 12th. The main goal for both Crusader teams, as always, is winning the big prize Nov. 10 in Lexington. The state meet returns to the Kentucky Horse Park. Both St. Henry teams are defending Class 1A champions, with the boys team gunning for its 11th straight state title. St. Henry will run the state course for the second time this fall Oct. 20 at the Lexington Catholic Invitational. The Crusaders were also in the Franklin County meet on the same track. Because both Crusader teams had heavy graduation losses from last year, those races are valuable teaching tools. “I always try to get on the state course as much as I can, especially this year with such a young team,” Harden said. “We have a lot of new people running that course.” Follow James on Twitter @RecorderWeber and check out more photos from the NKAC meet at

NKY Clippers complete season with success The Northern Kentucky Clipper Seniors completed their season with success at both the U.S. Open Aug. 7-11 at Indiana University Natatorium in Indianapolis and the 2012 Ohio LCM Senior Championships July 2629 at Miami University in Oxford.

2012 LCM U.S. Open results

Max Williamson of Fort Mitchell and Cory Chitwood of Union finished their season in style at the U.S Open. In order to swim at the U.S. Open this summer you had to swim an Olympic Trials qualifying time. Clippers are the only team in the Tristate area with swimmers reaching finals. Williamson’s performance continues to propel him as one the top 18 and under swimmers in the country. Events results include:

» 12th in the 200 breaststroke with a time of 2:15.06. This time puts him as the sixth fastest 18 and under in the United States and the 36th fastest 17 to 18 year old in USA Swimming history. This also puts him in the Junior National Team for the second year in a row. Williamson also broke his own Ohio LSC record. » 7th in the 400 IM. His time of 4:22.29 puts him fifth overall in the United States for 18 and under and the 11th fastest 17 to 18 year old in USA Swimming history. Once again, Max also broke his own Ohio LSC record with this time. » 9th in the 200 IM. His times in the 200 IM puts him 102nd in the world. After a somewhat disappointing Olympic Trials, Chitwood came home to Northern Kentucky to prepare for the U.S. Open. He knew he had something to

prove to himself and others. Specifically: » Chitwood had a lifetime best time in his 200 backstroke (1:57.4). This bettered his trials time of 2:00.00 and places him 21st in the world. Cory ended up third at finals but his prelim time was still the fastest time in the meet. » He was third in the 200 IM with a time of 2:00.8. His time would have qualified Top 16 at Olympic Trials. His time in the 200 IM is currently 56th in the world.

2012 Ohio LCM Senior Championship results The Northern Kentucky Clippers also finished strong at the 2012 Ohio LCM Senior Championships. As a team, the Clippers swam extremely well, making it one of the most

successful overall championship meets for the entire senior program. The Clippers ended up second to the Mason Manta Rays – which was expected given some swimmers attending the U.S. Open and other meets. As a team they swam more than 60 percent lifetime best events including three new team records.

Team record breakers

» Ann Davies of Fort Mitchell –100 Breaststroke – 1:14.69 (formerly held by Olivia Kuykendahl) » Chase Vennefron of Fort Mitchell – 100 Breaststroke – 1:08.27 (formerly held by Max Williamson) » Boys 200 Medley Relay: 1:52.53 of Chase Vennefron, Mike Summe of Edgewood, Robbie Newman of Fort Mitchell and Conner Downard of Fort Thomas bettered the existing team record of 1:52.99

kills against Villa. “Janelle and Kendyll have peaked at the right time,” said St. Henry head coach Maureen Kaiser. “They’ve really worked hard. Kendyll is a very versatile player and she plays with a lot of spunk and enthusiasm. Abbey has always been an allaround player. Rachel didn’t hit at all in the offseason because she’ll be setting at Dayton, and for her to be hitting well now has been ideal.” The seniors, numbering six in all, will try to win the Ninth Region in their home gym. The semifinals are scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 18, and the final Saturday, Oct. 20. St. Henry is 14-0 in regional play and beat perennial rival Notre Dame 3-1Sept. 20, but Kaiser knows that is no guarantee for success this week. “Hosting is not an easy job but we like to host it at least once during their four years here,” Kaiser said. “We have nice facilities and we’ll try to take advantage of it.” Kaiser said defense and blocking would be the main priority in practice

Crestview Hills is proud of growth The growth and stability of the city of Crestview Hills is something all the residents of our community should be most proud. Serving on the Crestview Hills City Council for 23 years has given me the opportunity to participate in all areas of the council. The city continues to expand the high quality of services to the residents while keeping the taxes at a rate appreciated by our homeowners and local businesses. Most recently, I am serving as chairman of the Crestview Hills/Lakeside Park Police Authority and the city’s Fi-

nance Committee. Our Police Department is staffed by a qualified group of leaders performing an excellent job of protectRalph Laird ing our resiCOMMUNITY dents and the RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST many commercial businesses in our community. The Finance Committee has been mindful of the budget and spending tax dollars well within our means. Keeping a close eye on the budget has afforded us the opportunity to make invest-

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Pentrine privilege

Why doesn’t the Catholic Church make more use of the pentrine privilege? Most people, even Catholics, have never even heard of it. The pentrine privilege would benefit many divorced and remarried Catholics who wish to remain in the church and raise their children in the faith. Today, many of these people drift away from the church and take their children with them.

The real ‘bottom line’

I just read an article in the South Kenton Recorder about the Independence City Council incumbents and how they watch the bottom line. Apparently someone has sold you a real bill of goods. The tax bills that the citizens of Independence just received represent probably the largest tax increase in the history of the city. The rate for real property last year was .215 per hundred dollars of assessment. The current rate for real property is .237 which is an increase of 10.5 percent. In this economy, that is outrageous. When you ask them about it they will tell you that they only took the “compensating rate” which is true but the rate jumped dramatically because of a “quirk” in the assessment of personal property, which was combined with the assessment of real property to calculate the “compensating rate.” They will also tell you that they could have taken an additional 4 percent increase on top of the compensating rate without a vote of the people. This is all true but the “bottom line” is that they have voted to raise taxes 10.5 percent which will produce over $300,000 in increased revenue for the city. Maybe they will spend this additional revenue on more $10,000 signs, welcoming people to Independence like the one they recently had constructed at the intersection of Route 17 and Pelle Road. If you want to see the actual details of the calculations, ask the city clerk for a copy of the 2012 Tax Rate Calculation performed by the Northern Kentucky Area Development District.

Shame on you

If you research the Kenton County Commissioners meeting you will find the following people voted for the new $85 fee that

thousands of people who don’t need it or want it will now pay for. The only people who needed it was Covington because of their center closing. They felt it was OK to make all the people pay for it instead of making the people who caused the problem pay for it. Shame on you if you vote for the same people the next time they come up for election. Beth Sewell, first district; Jon Draud, second district; Kris Knochelmann, third district; and let’s not leave out Judge-executive Steve Arlinghaus, who allowed this to come up for a vote. These people need to hear from the voters of Ludlow, Bromley, Park Hills, Fort Wright, Fort Mitchell, Lakeside Park, Villa Hills, Crescent Springs, Crestview Hills, Edgewood and Erlanger. Make your votes count. Save this list and take it to the poles with you and vote.

Unhappy with Rumpke

I am unhappy with the new Rumpke trash service in Independence. The mayor first presented this as if taxpayers would save money. We are now limited to one trash can. We can rent another can for a dollar a month forever but then we are paying more than before. Now we have to pay an extra $10 for each additional item that does not fit inside or on top of the trash can. The city advertised that we could call the public works office at 859-392-1920 for free pick-up of items “such as old garbage cans, furniture, mattresses or televisions.” I called that number and was told they will only take appliances and televisions. How much is it costing tax payers for public works to be used for this pick-up service? Also, we are offered the option to hop in our vehicles and drive our bulky trash to the public works dump. Residents burning gas and polluting our air while making trips to the dump negates the recycle bin process, doesn’t it? Look for old mattresses and large plastic swimming pools and toys to start littering our side roads. I own the same type garbage can as the one Rumpke provided. I can’t use it now as they don’t want to be “responsible if they damage it.” No, they want me to rent theirs. Our driver still gets out of his truck to empty each can; it is not automated as they claim.

ments in the future of our city. Currently several of our city streets are being upgraded. Over the next several years Crestview Hills will continue to

evolve into an even more robust community, offering both services and an environment that is conducive to individuals and the families of Crestview

Hills. My wife, Charlotte, and I have been residents of Crestview Hills for 38 years and have two sons and five grandchildren. I have been in the promotional products industry for 25 years and currently serve on the Governmental Forum Committee of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. Your vote on Nov. 6 for me will allow me to continue working on growth and development in a well-planned community. Ralph Laird is a candidate for reelection to the Crestview Hills City Council.

Make Villa Hills better I am running for City Council because I believe in the integrity and ethics of city government and that, as an elected city councilman, I must stand up for our city no matter what the consequences. Unfortunately, we have faced much controversy over the past two years and I have vowed to see this mission through. There are many resiTim Sogar dents who COMMUNITY have voiced RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST their support to put the city back on track. This is my goal. With what has been going on in our city for the past two years, I decided I must run again for City Council. Many residents know me as a councilman who: » speaks up for what is

right; » gets right to the point with no beating around the bush; » can always count on me to be straightforward and ask the tough questions; » takes the common-sense approach; » and will vote yes or no on issues and not take the easy way out of abstaining. I am always willing to listen to residents and diverse opinions and will form an opinion based on the facts. I am not a passive councilman and have the courage to challenge any-

thing that will negatively impact our city. My views are not always popular but being a councilman is not a popularity contest. Representing the citizens of Villa Hills is a privilege. I have demonstrated this through my years of experience and dedication to the city. As for my background, I have lived in Villa Hills 36 years since 1976 and have been actively involved in our community since then; am married with four grown children; am a veteran and served four years in the U.S. Navy during Vietnam; and have an MBA in marketing from Xavier University and BBA in business administration, University of Kentucky. My promise to residents of Villa Hills: I will continue to strive to make Villa Hills a better community for everyone. Tim Sogar is running for re-election to Villa Hills City Council.

Villa Hills council candidate thinks enough is enough Enough is enough. These three words have become my campaign slogan in my run for Villa Hills City Council. More importantly, they are now my mantra. As a frustrated resident of the city I feel compelled to serve. We find ourselves trapped in a situation that has made our once “most Rod Baehner livable” city nothing more COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST than daily COLUMNIST news fodder as we have become “most laughable.” The time has come to end the political quagmire that continues to embarrass our once proud city. One way or another, the healing process may begin later this month with the pending removal hearing for the mayor, but it will not be complete until after the council election next month. All six council seats are up for election Nov. 6 and I am running for one of them. While I do not have council experience, what I do have to offer is a proven

track record of community service and more than 25 years of successful professional management experience. Additionally, I have a passion for this job and the conviction to see that council never loses sight of who we truly work for – the citizens of Villa Hills. My wife, Sara, and I have called Villa Hills home for more than 17 years. It is the only home our children have ever known and we have no plans to change that. While this election is my first foray into local politics, I have been very active in our community for many years. My service includes past positions on charitable boards including Redwood Rehabilitation Center and the Down syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati, four years as an elected member of the River Ridge Elementary Site Based Decision Making Council, 12 seasons as an active coach and current board service for the Villa Hills Soccer Club, senior leadership positions in local Scouting groups and service as a volunteer for Special Olympics of Northern Kentucky.

always called this area my home. I received my baccalaureate degree from Eastern Kentucky University and subsequently earned master’s of business administration and master’s of science graduate degrees from Northern Kentucky University. I have extensive professional experience in operations management and quality assurance, and I am currently employed by MultiColor Corp. as a technical manager. The new council will face many challenges as it takes office, not the least of which will be regaining the trust of the voters. If I am privileged enough to be chosen to serve, I will commit to working with my colleagues to get the city back on track as quickly as possible. No more parochial politics – we have had quite enough of that. We need to focus on re-establishing an effective city government, fiscal responsibility, safety and better service to the citizens of Villa Hills. I would appreciate your support on Nov. 6. Rod Baehner is a Villa Hills Council candidate.

TEAM SPIRIT NKYFL cheerleading competition is ‘for the kids’

eam spirit was abundant Oct. 6 when nearly 800 Northern Kentucky Youth Football League cheerleaders from across Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties flocked to Cooper High School in Union for the annual NKYFL Cheer Competition. Families with flowers for the competitors, football players in their jerseys and, of course, cheerleaders of all ages filled the cafeteria, hallways and gym of the high school, excitement for the competition palpable. The competition was hosted by the South Kenton Nittany Lions. Besides cheering for games, South Kenton Cheer Director Pam Robbins of Independence said this is the one competition the cheerleaders have. Robbins gets emotional talking about the girls’ preparation for the competition. “Just to see all the goals they set for themselves and for this day and they bring all those goals and get them accomplished here. That’s what makes it all worthwhile,” she said, tearing up. “It makes me emotional talking about it because that’s what it’s for. It’s for the kids.” The cheerleaders, who range from spirit squad (ages 3-5) to seniors (ages 11-13), work hard throughout the season. It’s sometimes overwhelming and frustrating, “but today is what it’s all about,” Robbins said. “Because this is what they work for.” Robbins, who has four daughters – three of whom are cheerleaders in the organization and one who’s an assistant coach – has been involved with the NKYFL for seven years. Cheering, she said, helps the girls participating build relationships and teaches skills that may prepare them for the middle and high school levels while also building self-esteem and boosting their confidence. That’s something Robbins said she really pushes. “We’re here to build them up,” she said. According to Robbins, preparations for the competition, which is typically in October,

MARTY WHITACRE FOR THE COMMUNITY RECORDER begins in July. "Just to see their smile and the glisten on their face makes it all worthwhile,” she said. “If that build falls, that’s OK. You get up and you build again. You don’t just let it fall and leave it. That’s a life lesson in itself, I think. You don’t just let it go. You learn from that fall and you build it back up and you make it better and that’s what they do.” Mary Jane Lewis of Bridgetown, Ohio, was there watching her granddaughter Brooklyn Lay, 6, of Wilder perform with

the Red Devils spirit team. “I thought it was great having all the teams compete and the spirit that they showed,” she said. “It was a lot of fun. I found myself taking pictures of all kinds of teams. It was just so cute.” Brooklyn said she had fun performing. “How much fun?” her grandmother asked her. “A lot.” Activities like cheerleading provide “a really good base,” Lewis said.

“I think it instills a good sense of community, a good sense of staying active.” This was Brooklyn’s first season cheering, her mother Kashmir Stern of Wilder said. “But she’s made her way right in. I think we’ll be doing it every season now.” Her daughter loves the sport and from the looks of it, she’s not the only one. "Every girl loves it,” Stern said. “You can see every girl on the floor is happy. They’re all smiling. They’re going with the flow of everything. Everyone is enjoying it.” Melissa Fultz of Hebron, the pidget (ages 8-9) coach for the Erlanger Lions, said it’s taken a lot of sweat, tears and dedication to get to the October competition. Squad member Selena Riveros, 9, of Erlanger, said she was excited and nervous. “Her nerves are shot right now, but we’re working through that,” Fultz said shortly before competing. “I told her to visualize us being in the gym and no one else is around but her coaches.” “We’re really excited and anxious to rock the floor,” Fultz said.

A recipe for ‘baking emergencies’ I knew I could count on my readers to come to the rescue for finding recipes for “emergency cake” that one of our readers remembered fondly from her grandma. Jane H. found one that Gale Gand made on the food network. Gale’s recipe is on my blog “Cooking with Rita” at CincinRita Heikenfeld Dawn F. RITA’S KITCHEN sent in one from her grandmother. Dawn said her grandmother called it “quick cake” and Dawn’s recipe is similar to the one I’m sharing today. Dawn’s grandma’s name was Ella Mae Ramsey. “But to me she was Mamaw,” Ramsey said. Now I found my recipe in a circa 1924-28 wooden box, which had printed in gold on the front “Gold Medal Home Service Recipes.” The box contains all the original recipe cards and was sent to me, again, by a reader several years ago. I also have a very cool recipe aluminum framed “notebook” called “Balanced Recipes” from Pillsbury from 1933. And thanks to my sister, Madelyn, who shops at what she calls “the better gift stores” thrift stores, I have several vintage recipe boxes with recipes and cookbooks. While we’re on the subject of vintage everything, check out Bryn Mooth’s “writes4food” blog at

1 large head garlic 1 tablespoon water ¼ cup non-fat plain yogurt ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1½ teaspoons white wine vinegar 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard 2 anchovy fillets, rinsed Salt and ground black pepper

Rita based her emergency cake on a recipe found in a vintage card box. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

Bryn is sharing vintage recipes from her “Clara project.”

Rita’s emergency cake

This is my adaptation of a really good tasting, simple cake. I guess that’s why it’s called “emergency” cake. Though the recipe indicated it could be eaten with a broiled icing or even without icing, I just iced it with a simple confectioner’s sugar glaze: 1 cup confectioners’ sugar flavored with a teaspoon of vanilla and enough water (a tablespoon or so) to thin out. 12⁄3 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup sugar ¼ teaspoon salt 2½ teaspoons baking powder 1 ⁄3 cup unsalted butter, softened (can also use shortening, which the original recipe called for) 2 ⁄3 cup milk (not too cold)

Use up the last of the fresh basil from the garden! Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 4 cod filets (about 1½ pounds), placed in sprayed baking dish

1 large egg, lightly beaten 1½ teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk flour, sugar, salt and baking powder together. Add butter, milk, egg and vanilla, and beat until blended, about 3 minutes. Pour into sprayed 8-inch to 9-inch baking pan. Bake 25-30 minutes. Mine was done in

25. When toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, cake is done. Don’t over bake.

Home safety for aging population Falling in one’s home causes many life-threatening injuries and jeopardizes the independence for over one-third of Kentucky’s senior population (65 and older) each year. However, falls do not have to be a part of growing older, as fall-related injuries are often preventable. One way to be mindful of potential injuries is to take steps to prevent them. By lowering the risk of falls, health and independence can be preserved. According to the Kentucky Safe Aging Coalition, older Kentuckians should follow these guidelines to help prevent falls: » Exercise regularly to increase strength and improve balance.

Why volunteer ... WIFM Radio? Retired and decidedly finished working for money and wondering what to do with the remainder of your life? Over 55, recently released from your employer and wondering what to do with the rest of your life? Want to find new meaning and purpose? These next three installments of my column will discuss these issues facing us “boomers.” This first article is about volunteering your time and talents. Why should we volunteer? We all listen to that same radio station: What’s In It For Me? (WIFM). So it really makes me wonder why I should give my time and energies away for free. Here’s what in it for me: I live longer! The Corporation for National Community Service reports that seniors who provide social support


for others through volunteering had lower mortality rates than those who did

not. I get smarter! According to a recent study, seniors who volunteer in social programs not only maintain good brain function, but their brain function and cognitive ability may actually increase. In short, volunteering can actually make me smarter. I am happier! Giving to others can help combat depression, because giving makes us feel vibrant, important and satisfied. Even if you are not depressed, volunteering is a rewarding experience that reduces stress and increases

happiness. The Corporation for National Community Service notes that many health benefits associated with volunteering are a result of the sense of accomplishment a volunteer feels when helping others. Here are a few suggestions on whom to call to get started volunteering: » Michael Dutle, RSVP and Coming of Age: 513-241-7745. » Sarah Siegrist, Senior Services of Northern Kentucky: 859-292-7979. » Senior Services’ 10 senior activity centers: There is so much to this “getting old” thing that we need to talk about. If I don’t know the answer, then I will learn along with you. Ken Rechtin is the interim executive director of Senior Services of Northern Kentucky and a Campbell County Commissioner.

Winterizing your garden starts now

Question: Should I go ahead and rototill the garden and apply fertilizer now for next year’s garden? I had a lot of tomato and squash problems this year. Answer: You can reduce the risk of some common problems next year by getting rid of leftover plant debris in vegetable, flower and fruit gardening areas this fall. Several diseasecausing fungi and bacteria spend the winter on plant debris, and can cause diseases the following growing season. Proper garden sanitation can combat such

diseases as early blight, mildews, gray mold fungus and various root rot and wilt Mike problems. Klahr To comHORTICULTURE bat disCONCERNS eases, remove all plants, except winter vegetables or cover crops, from the vegetable garden. It is especially important to completely clean out and destroy all diseased plants in vegetable gardens and fruit plantings.

COMING UP Preparing Your Lawn, Garden, Orchard & Landscape for Winter: 6:30-8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 30, Boone County Extension Office. Call 859-586-6101 to register, or enroll online at

Carefully dig up and remove decomposing roots to keep them from releasing disease-causing microbes into the soil. Also, remove spent blooms and foliage from flower gardens and mummified fruits on or around trees

and grapevines. Garden debris that is not severely diseased is a wonderful addition to a compost pile. A good pile will heat up and completely decompose the remains in a few months. Gardeners who decide not to remove old plants should till gardening areas this fall to break dead materials into smaller pieces and then work them into the soil. Plant debris decomposes more rapidly when buried than when left on the soil surface. This reduces populations of disease-causing organisms that could cause problems next year.

Computer-based GED testing is available Community Recorder

Computer-based GED testing is available at Gateway Community and Technical College. The cost is $120, however, the first 60 students in Kentucky to sign up for the computerized version will be able to take the test for $60, the same fee as the paperbased test. The computer-based testing increases access to the test by enabling 24/7 registration and scheduling. Those who take the computer-based test receive an instant score report, an advantage not available with the paperbased test. The computer version offers greater flex-

ibility because it can be taken in separately timed sections on different dates or on one date in separate timed sections. GED test preparation is offered by Kentucky Adult Education, which is providing the funds to cover 50 percent of the cost for computer test-takers for the first 60 people statewide who sign up now through Dec. 31. Complete information on GED preparation is available at http:// ents/ged/. Students interested in taking the computer-based test must register through Pearson VUE at

or by calling 1-877-3926433. Registrants should have payment information ready to submit online or by phone. The official GED Testing Center at Gateway’s Boone Campus, 500 Technology Way, Florence, offers the computer-based testing five days a week and some Saturdays.

Another reason to till the garden in the fall is so it is ready to plant in early March, instead of having to wait until a rainy spring allows plowing or tilling the garden. Soil test now to see if your garden needs phosphorus, potassium, lime or sulfur. If so, these could be applied in the fall. Don’t apply nitrogen now, since it is easily leached by rain and melting snow and it might move below the root zone by next spring. However, due to health concerns, if livestock manure is applied to a vegetable garden or strawberry patch,

do this in the fall for a safe spring garden. For more information on preparing lawns, gardens, orchards, flower beds and landscapes for winter, you are welcome to attend our free class at 6:30-8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 30, at the Boone County Extension Office in Burlington. To register for the class, “Preparing Your Lawn, Garden, Orchard & Landscape for Winter,” just call 859-5866101, or enroll online at Mike Klahr is the Boone County extension agent for horticulture.

dents and is planning for an enrollment of more than 200 in 2013. In addition, the school has received the American Society of Association Executive Workforce Development Award from the National Association of Home Builders. This award recognizes local associations for their achievements in developing tomorrow’s construction workforce. The program is the oldest private trade school in the nation; operated at the association’s building center located in the Circleport Business Center off of Mineola Pike. Students in the program study two-year classes in carpentry, maintenance and remodeling, plumbing, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning. The program operates a four-year


class for students learning electric. After graduation, students are certified as trade school graduates and are two years closer to their journeyman’s certificate. The certification acceleration is not available from other schools in the area. As a side benefit of the program, students earn 24 hours of college credit at Gateway Technical and Community College. Recently, the association has added an incumbent welding program to allow students to expand their skills to current and future employers. For more information about the Enzweiler Apprenticeship Training program, call Thomas Napier at 859-331-9500 or email him at

We live in an area which is known for very cold winters. Our facility is nearly 7000 square feet in area. When we began to utilize the first unit we were amazed to see how even the heat was for the entire living room area. We ordered a second and a third unit which now warms the entire home. Much to our surprise we are saving over $250 a month and had the lowest expense for heating we have ever experienced here. I would heartily recommend your products to anybody who is interested in really nice, even heat in their home and also interested in saving on their utility expenses. Dennis Crystal, Troy, MT (Retired Airline Pilot)



Enclosed you will find printouts of our electric bill and gas/heating/cooking bills for 2007 - 2008. Our gas company, AmeriGas, stated that more money was saved than would show up because of the cost going up. We would turn the gas on early in the morning and turn it down to 60 degrees; We would use the EdenPURE ® heaters from then on and they provided such warmth and cozy heat. Many of our friends have informed me recently that they are going to purchase these heaters for their homes this winter. Gloria D. Smith, Boydton, VA (Retired Elementary Principal)

EdenPURE reopens Ohio factory creates 250 new jobs ®

New models shipped direct from warehouse at 49% savings Richard Karn, North Canton, Ohio I was fortunate enough to attend the grand opening of the new EdenPURE ® factory in North Canton, Ohio. The new plant brought hundreds of new jobs back to Ohio and reversed the common practice of sending Midwest manufacturing jobs to China. Now, EdenPURE® continues to ramp up production for the coming Winter with exciting new models and hundreds of new employees as this Made in America success story continues to grow. American Labor, American Quality With over 3 million portable heaters sold EdenPURE® is the best selling portable infrared heating system in North America. However, like any classic, EdenPURE® has dozens of would-be competitors who create Asian copies at low prices using cheap, foreign labor. Don’t be fooled by these imitations. Look for the EdenPURE® logo and the Made in North Canton, Ohio stamp. Save like millions of others on your heating bills and say “NO” to cheap foreign imitators. I spoke with Neil Tyburk the Chief Designer and President of EdenPURE ®’s North Canton plant who is very direct in his beliefs. “We have better designs, better materials and a better work force. We can kick their butts in production and quality. The only advantage they have is cheap labor.” Save up to 49% on 2013 EdenPURE®s Now readers can save up to 49% ($229 the largest savings ever on new EdenPURE ®s). EdenPURE ® is not just the best-selling portable heating system in North America. As an EdenPURE® owner I rank EdenPURE ® #1 for quality, safety and efficiency. And now is the perfect time to save like never before on our expanded 2013 EdenPURE® line made in our brand new North Canton, Ohio facility. With two models EdenPURE ® can meet all of your heating requirements 365 days a year. We receive thousands of letters from satisfied customers who share their heating testimonials many of which you can view at our website This Summer we even followed up with EdenPURE® customers from 5 years ago like Gloria Smith (see her original testimony above) who are still just as enthusiastic and in some instances saved thousands of dollars versus costly propane. Gloria Smith Interview May 20, 2012 “My name is Gloria Smith and I am a retired principal from Boydton, Virginia. I’ve been using EdenPURE® Heaters for 5 years. I think I saved at least $15,000 over a period of 5 years. And that’s proven with my bank statements because it’s documented. And I feel really great about using the EdenPURE® Heaters.” “Many people have called me from all over the country when they have seen the infomercials on TV. I’ve en-

Never be cold again

How it works:


Heats floor to the same temperature as ceiling. 1. Electricity ignites powerful SYLVANIA infrared lamp.



As Al Borland on Home Improvement I was the man with all the answers. However, as Richard Karn I still look for money saving and efficient heating in my home. I have an EdenPURE ® Infrared Portable Heater in my California home and like millions of others found it to be a supersafe, reliable source of portable heat all year long. joyed talking to them and I want everybody to save money in these hard economic times. I believe in paying it forward, so when you experience something good, you want to share it.” Stay Comfortable 365 Days a Year “Never be cold again” is the EdenPURE ® promise. EdenPURE® provides you insurance against the cold all year long. Stay comfortable on those unseasonably chilly evenings no matter the season. I live in California but believe me it gets cold at night. Keep your expensive furnace turned down until it’s absolutely necessary. And if we are fortunate enough to experience a mild winter as many of us did in the Midwest last year, you keep your furnace off all season and save even bigger. New, More Efficient Models The engineers at EdenPURE® listened to their millions of customers and somehow managed to improve the #1 portable heater in North America. Through old fashioned American ingenuity the new EdenPURE® line is more efficient to save you even more money. The EdenPURE® Personal Heater now heats a larger area, an increase from 350 square feet to 500 square feet. That’s a 30% increase in efficiency! And EdenPURE® is proud to introduce the 2013 Model 750. The new Model 750 is perfect for larger areas and heats up to 750 square feet. But the best thing about the Model 750 is the price. We priced the Model 750 at only $50 above the Personal Heater. This means you receive a 33% increase in performance for only $50. That’s American engineering at its best! We all know heating costs are expected to remain at record levels. The cost of

heating our homes and apartments will continue to be a significant burden on the family budget. The EdenPURE® can cut your heating bills and pay for itself in a matter of weeks, and then start putting a great deal of extra money in your pocket after that. Super Safe Infrared Heat Now remember, a major cause of residential fires in the United States is carelessness and faulty portable heaters. The choice of fire and safety professional, Captain Mike Hornby, the EdenPURE® has no exposed heating elements that can cause a fire. And a redundant home protection system that simply shuts the EdenPURE® down if it senses danger. That’s why grandparents and parents love the EdenPURE®. The outside of the EdenPURE® only gets warm to the touch so that it will not burn children or pets. And your pet may be just like my dog who has reserved a favorite spot near the EdenPURE ® . You see the EdenPURE ® uses infrared heat. And just as pets enjoy basking in a beam of sunlight they try to stay close to EdenPURE ® ’s “bonewarming” infrared heat. The Origin of EdenPURE® a Missouri Rancher’s Discovery American’s love to tinker. We are a nation of inventors from Benjamin Franklin to Thomas Edison. A Missouri horse breeder named John Jones was no exception. Jones lived in a large drafty old farmhouse with his family of five. They stayed warm on cold Missouri nights with an old coal furnace and plenty of blankets. Now Jones was always collecting scrap to use in his latest inventions and somewhere along the line he had picked up a large sheet of cured copper.

2. The quartz infrared lamp gently warms the patented copper heating chambers.

3. The soft heat “rides” the humidity in the room and provides even, moist, soft heat ceiling to floor and wall to wall without reducing oxygen and humidity.

SYLVANIA is a registered trademark of OSRAM SYLVANIA Inc. used under license. Richard Karn is a paid spokesperson for EdenPURE®.

Jones stored the large copper sheet in his basement near the coal furnace he labored to fill every chilly morning. Jones noticed something peculiar. The coal furnace warmed the copper sheet and as the furnace cooled down the copper sheet stayed warm. In fact, the copper sheet stayed warm for many hours and heated much of the large basement. As Jones continued to develop a portable infrared heater he knew the copper was the secret ingredient that would make his heater different from all the rest. His copper heating chambers combined with the far infrared bulbs provided an efficient wave of “soft” heat over large areas. The breakthrough EdenPURE® infrared heating chamber was born. The Health Secret is in the Copper EdenPURE ®’s engineers have taken Jones’ original concept through revolutionary changes. EdenFLOW™ technology uses copper heating chambers to take the energy provided by our special SYLVANIA infrared bulbs and distribute our famous soft heat evenly throughout the room. Now our copper isn’t ordinary. It’s 99.9% pure antimicrobial copper from an over 150 year old American owned company in Pennsylvania. Researchers have discovered copper as an antimicrobial is far more effective than stainless steel or even silver. That’s why our special antimicrobial copper is marked Cu+ and used in hospitals on touch surfaces. So your EdenPURE ® heater is continuously pushing soft, healthy, infrared heat throughout your room.
