TOURNEY BOUND A6 Tigers overcome adversity for state berth.


Ballot error a concern to mayor By Amy Scalf

CRESCENT SPRINGS — Mayor Jim Collett voted in the recent general election, but he got the wrong ballot and was not able to vote in the Crescent Springs City Council race. Collett, who was not up for reelection this election cycle, was handed a ballot meant for residents in the unincorporated area outside the Crescent Springs city boundaries. Although the city’s six incumbent candidates ran unopposed, Collett doesn’t want the situation to happen again. During the regular city meeting on Nov. 12, Collett used the incident as motivation to discuss an-

nexing the unincorporated area into the city. For a long time city leaders have talked about annexing properties along Anderson or Crescent Springs/Bromley Road, an area mostly comprising apartments, and an ordinance had been in draft form for almost a year, Collett said. “I think it’s time to end the situation where people live in our city and can’t vote in our city elections,” he said. “It’s one thing when the people in the apartments can’t vote but when the mayor of a city can’t vote for his own council people, it’s a problem.” Collett said the city would prepare a process for property owners who don’t want to be annexed into the city, and property owners

could petition the council not to annex. Collett said he wants the draft ordinance updated to reflect the reduced insurance premium tax and Collett ready for the city’s next caucus meeting on Monday, Nov. 26. Kenton County Clerk Gabrielle Summe said annexation may help keep voters from receiving incorrect ballots, but people still make mistakes. “He was given the wrong ballot,” said Summe. “Poll workers were trained extensively and unfortunately this happened. I wish I could explain what happened. I

feel so bad because I know that is frustrating.” She said each voting precinct had a street list, highlighted and color-coded to differentiate which area’s residents received which ballot. Summe said Kenton County’s 108 precincts had 60 ballot faces – variations of the county ballot – for this election. Thirty-one precincts, which include two of Crescent Springs’ three precincts, had more than one ballot face. “People have a hard time whenever there is an extra ballot face in a precinct,” she said. “Jim was the only one who called me to say he got an incorrect ballot. Other people called to tell me they got an incorrect ballot, but returned it for a correct one.”

When a voter receives an incorrect ballot, Summe said, he or she should return the ballot to the precinct clerk, who should check the street list to determine the correct ballot or call the Count Clerk’s office for verification. If a wrong ballot was given to the voter, then the wrong ballot would be spoiled and a new ballot would be given to the voter. “It’s easier in a primary election, because it’s just broken down by party. When you get to the general election, you get different ballot faces based on where each person lives,” she said. “I’m looking for an even better way to make it more foolproof. I’m always open to suggestions.” Visit for more community news

Newcomer joins Kenton school board


By Amy Scalf

When Logan Hehman left home with his mother Michelle on Nov. 15 she told him they were going to visit her job at Xavier University. Instead they went to Kroger in Fort Mitchell, where Logan got to meet Buddy Valastro of TLC’s program “The Cake Boss.” Valastro, who was in Northern Kentucky for the first time, is on a book tour and stopped at Kroger to promote a brand of cakes the stores will be selling.

Bill Culbertson ousted incumbent Mike Martin in the Kenton County School District election. It was the only contested school board seat up for election in this cycle. Culbertson received 2,978 votes, 824 more than Martin’s 2,154, according to unofficial results, for a four-year term in the Fifth Educational District. In a previous interview, Culbertson said he entered the race because he wanted to make a difference. Martin, who served for 16 years on the school board, distributed a concession message wishing Culbertson success and including words of gratitude for his supporters. “A thank you to all who have voted for me, past and present, and a special thanks to the dedi-

cated teachers and staff,” said Martin. “To the 12,000 students, always do what is right and enjoy school, make friends, and don’t Collins be afraid to daydream.” Incumbents ran without competition in the First and Second Educational Districts, returning veterans Karen Collins and Carl Wicklund Wicklund to their posts with vote tallies of 6,956 and 5,579, respectively. Collins received the 2009 Proudfoot Award for the Kentucky Outstanding Board Member, and has served as the board president.

College offers limited edition view of the Bible By Amy Scalf

CRESTVIEW HILLS — Even scholars at Thomas More College have never seen the Bible like this. A Heritage Edition of Pentateuch, the first five books of the Bible’s Old Testament, and 10 illuminated pages from other volumes of The Saint John’s Bible

were unveiled at the college’s Eva G. Farris Art Gallery at noon Nov. 12. “There’s an enormous amount of artistry and thought that’s gone into the Heritage Edition to give the viewer as close an experience as possible to the real thing,” said Stacy Smith Rogers, director of Thomas More College communications and public relations.

The Heritage Edition is a fullsize, limited-edition, signed and numbered fine art reproduction of The Saint John’s Bible, the first handwritten, illuminated Bible commissioned by a Benedictine Abbey since the advent of the printing press. Commissioned in 1998 by the Benedictine monks of Saint John’s Abbey and University, The Saint John’s Bible is meant “to ig-

which included a worldwide search for the finest paper makers and printing experts. “It looks like a lot of work,” said Andrea Robben, a Thomas More College student. “It’s amazing that it’s all hand-done.

Erlanger artist shines in show By Libby Cunningham

ERLANGER — The walls of Phyllis Dattilo’s Erlanger home are painted white for a reason. It’s so the artwork that adorns them can stand out, which makes sense because Dattilo herself is an artist. Her work was featured along with that of friends Susan Pater and Elaine West in Watercolor Interpretations, an art show in

Mariemont, Ohio, that ran from Nov. 2 to Nov. 10 and showcased the past three years of her hard work. “It was very interesting, we had a lot of interesting people come and a lot of comments about how well it was going,” Dattilo said, adding the show featured 89 hanging watercolor paintings. Dattilo, West and Pater paint together each week at Mother of God Church in Covington and spend an extended period of time in

Hilton Head, S.C., each year perfecting pieces. “We paint from eight in the morning until 10 at night,” Dattilo said. “We quit for dinner and that’s it. That’s when we get a lot done.” An art show to reveal the works is usually put on about every three years, she explained, and the theme is usually related to watercolor. Dattilo has been an artist as long as she can remember. She has taken art classes at Northern Kentucky University and taught classes at Baker Hunt Art and Cultural Center in Covington. Currently she’s working

on a scene from Rabbit Hash, featuring a rocking chair and a wagon wheel. She draws inspiration from things she sees, like trees on the highway or fire hydrants, she said. Growing up she liked to draw and using watercolor as a medium meant an emphasis can be put on the initial drawing. “I think the reason I like watercolor better is I like drawing,” Dattilo said. “I think watercolor retains a lot of the drawing. And when you do an oil, you have a drawing but it builds and builds and builds.”

‘Shop Local’ movement takes flight ’Tis the season – for midnight madness and door-buster bargains. But for folks who don’t want to brave the crowds and rush of Black Friday for the best deals, there is another option: shop local. American Express’ Small Business Saturday is Nov. 24, and according to, it’s a day for everyone to support small businesses that invigorate the economy and keep communities thriving. According to the site, it began in 2010 when American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help small businesses get more exposure during one of the biggest shopping weekends of the year. Wrenda Magoteaux said her business, Sleigh Bells Christmas and Gifts in Walton, is advertising for Small Business Saturday. “We’re trying to latch on to that because we think it’s important.” While she may not have appreciated small businesses when she was younger, Magoteaux said as she matured, she always tried to support such shops “because I think it’s the meat and bread. It makes a community, I think, feel like a community … it makes each community feel more homelike.” She knows her shop can’t compete with bigger chain stores, so they didn’t try to. “We tried to pick items they didn’t carry,” she

Lisa Ball of Velocity Bike and Bean in Florence recently participated for the first time with the Cash Mob of Northern Kentucky. According to, the concept is simple. “With $20 in hand, members of a community come together to shop in a locally owned establishment to support their favorite local business and support the area economy." “I’m really thrilled with the fact that there are people out there that believe in this,” she said. Mark Ball also said small business customers benefit from staff knowledge. “The benefit to the customer is the level of expertise I think that you don’t get when you go to bigger stores that are manned possibly by people who aren’t trained as well or don’t have as much experience under their belt. I think that level of expertise and recommendation is there and it’s a value to them.” Shopping local also provides the opportunity to purchase unique items shoppers won’t get at bigger retailers, said Mark Ball. The Northern Kentucky Chamber of Com-

said. No small business can compete with Black Friday, said Magoteaux. “What we can give that Walmart and the big box stores really can’t give is personal service,” she said. “We greet them when they come in the door. We try to make the people know they’re important to us just for coming.” She encourages shoppers to support any local business they can. “Any time you can support local, that’s the way to go,” Magoteaux said. “It just helps out your neighbor.” Linda Whittenburg of Burlington’s Cabin Arts, treasurer of the Historic Burlington Business Association, said money spent on goods produced by small businesses “stay in your community and grows your community,” and allows businesses to join together and sponsor community events like the HBBA’s upcoming holiday event. “We give back to the community in a way that the big box stores don’t,” she said. Local shops employ local people and “we furnish a good living for them.” Whittenburg said the only way she can compete against bigger chains is in service. Employees, she said, are “trained and actually passionate” about what they do. “Everyone is a quilter and knows what they’re talking about,” she said. They’re able to help. “You’re not going to get that elsewhere.”

merce also supports small businesses during the holidays. According to Ashlee Foltz, the chamber’s director of marketing and communications, “a few things” are under way in support of Small Business Saturday. “Small businesses are the backbone of our com-

munity and choosing to support them during Small Business Saturday is just one step in helping them to grow and thrive,” Foltz said. “We are definitely encouraging our members and the community to take advantage of this day to support small businesses in our region.”

ERLANGER — The adorned olive green jacket fits Sam Riesenberg nearly perfectly, but it still leaves him some room to grow. The 10-year-old student at Mary Queen of Heaven School walked to a Veterans Day program in the company of his grandfather, John Gripschover, who wore the coat nearly 70 years ago when he served with the U.S. Army during World War II. Mary Queen of Heaven’s Veterans Day program shines amongst those in Northern Ken-

tucky schools, because the school received an American flag flown by a troop serving in Afghanistan that students sent packages to. The flag flew in Afghanistan on the Fourth of July. “We were overwhelmed by some dozen packages that arrived over a couple of weeks,” wrote Eric Burley, a U.S. Air Force captain, in a letter. “Your packages lifted morale after long flights and very warm days.” Lisa Burley, originally from Greater Cincinnati, flew in from Oregon to present the school with the flag. Eric is her son. “(Presenting the flag) was one

of the proudest moments of my life,” Lisa said after the program. “I’m proud to be part of the great men who serve our country.” Students at Mary Queen of Heaven then honored veterans, who were seated in the front rows of the gymnasium, with poems and performances. Sam’s younger brother, Ross, was also part of the ceremony. He said he’s proud he can celebrate Veterans Day with his grandfather. “It’s really cool to hear my grandpa tell how it was in World War II,” Ross said. Visit for more community news

Students are ‘someone’ who can stop bullies By Libby Cunningham

The Kenton County Board of Education awarded three staff members the What Outstanding Work awards. Pictured are recipients Toni Scherbauer, Julie Feinauer and Maybelle Engle. THANKS TO TERESA WILKINS

Board of Education awards three staff professionals Community Recorder The Kenton County Board of Education presented the What Outstanding Work award to three staff members in October. Recipients were Julie Feinauer, Maybelle Engle and Toni Scherbauer. Feinauer, nominated by a colleague, is a counselor at the Kenton County Academies of Innovation & Technology. She taught English at Simon Kenton High School prior to joining the Academies this fall. She jumped right into the work and took ownership of the development of the academies academic structure. She believes every scholar will be successful and is willing to give 100 plus to accomplish completion of each project and goal to clear the pathway for their success. Feinauer gives a helping hand where needed, such as Infinite Campus training with the new teachers or attending to a parent and student request about the Academies. She has many suggestions and plans to make the Academies and scholars successful in the Kenton County District. Engle was also nominated by a colleague. When a pipe burst at Woodland Middle School in August and coolant was flowing down from the ceiling, it was Engle to the rescue. She rushed into the room and pulled the boxes of cheerleading uniforms

to safety. If it were not for her quick actions, all of the Woodland cheerleading uniforms would have been ruined. However, Engle didn’t stop there, she took the uniforms home and personally washed them so they would be in good shape for the upcoming football season. Engle, who has worked at Woodland Middle School since it opened, always has a positive “can do” attitude and she puts the welfare of the staff and students first. When the school started this year, the cafeteria staff was down three positions due to illness. Again, Engle jumped in and washed fruit and did other jobs as needed to make sure all the students were fed. Scherbauer, nominated by a colleague, is the first voice that callers hear when they contact Central Office. That voice is always friendly, upbeat and helpful. Through her people skills and her knowledge of who handles what – Scherbauer is able to immediately provide accurate information to those who call. Also, when she cannot solve the problem, she knows exactly who is best to handle the issue and directs the call to them. During the most tense and frustrating situations, Scherbauer is unflappable. She treats every caller with dignity and respect – even when she is not being treated that way.

FORT MITCHELL — Scott Harvey wants students at Beechwood Independent Schools to know they are someone. Each of them is someone that can take a stand against bullying. He’s letting the kids know now, because he says sometimes it’s too late to stop bullying if you expect someone else to step in. Harvey, a police officer in Nicholasville, has worked in many schools as a D.A.R.E. officer. He’s seen a need for anti-bullying education in Kentucky schools, so he created the “I Am Someone” program. Beechwood’s middle and high school students attended the program on Nov. 13, which is the first step in a behavioral management program the district is looking to adopt, said Beechwood Superintendent Steve Hutton. Parents were invited to another session of the presentation. Harvey’s speech highlights three expectations the district will have for students, Hutton said, to be safe, respectful and responsible. Before Harvey began speaking Ben Zimmerman, high school principal, addressed the crowd about bullying at Beechwood. “The way that it stops is for you to take care of your neighbor, whether you know them or not,” Zimmerman advised. Bullying, be it direct or indirect, occurs in every school, Harvey said. “Kids say it isn’t a problem,” he told the students after he asked if bullying was a problem at Beechwood.

Scott Harvey, a police officer with the Nicholasville Police Department, came to Beechwood Schools to speak to students about taking a stand against bullying. LIBBY CUNNINGHAM/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER Direct bullying would be saying hurtful things to someone. Cyberbulling is a form of indirect bullying, Harvey explained. Both forms have impact and one thing in common, they happen outside of adult supervision. Harvey’s system teaches that students need to step up, take ac-

tion and take care of students who are being targeted. “I am someone, it reminds me I am someone who’s already there,” Harvey said. “And if I don’t help, someone else may not be coming.”

Tigers earn state tournament berth By Adam Turer

The Beechwood Tigers have been able to overcome many different kinds of adversity this season. Now, an old nemesis stands between the Tigers and the program’s first state championship game since 2008. Some of the adversity has been self-inflicted. Fifteen players were suspended and three were dismissed from the team following alleged violations of team rules at a party Oct. 27. Those penalties could have derailed a team that was already dealing with an injury to senior quarterback Cameron Lane. Lane’s injury forced senior running back Max Nussbaum to take over the quarterbacking duties until freshman Kyle Fieger was

ready to assume the position. All Fieger has done in his first three starts as Beechwood’s quarterback is lead his team to three playoff victories by an average margin of victory of 35 points per game. Fieger has completed 23 of 33 passes for 533 yards since being handed the reins of the offense. Most importantly, he has a 9-0 touchdown-to-interception ratio. In the Class 1A regional final on Nov. 16, all Fieger had to do was manage the game. Nussbaum put on a performance for the ages, doing just about everything he could to extend his senior season for at least another week. Nussbaum rushed 34 times for 157 yards and four touchdowns and caught two passes for 81 yards and a score. He also intercepted a pass on defense and add-

ed a 52-yard punt, as the Tigers defeated Frankfort, 35-13. Now, Beechwood (9-4) has to overcome an obstacle that has stood between the Tigers and the state championship game each of the past three seasons. Mayfield (12-1) has ended Beechwood’s playoff run in the state semifinals in three straight seasons. In last year’s 19-14 loss, Nussbaum was held to just 3.5 yards per carry on 31 rushes. The workhorse will try to put the team on his back this year. It helps that he has a confident, fearless freshman to hand him and throw him the ball. Beechwood hosts Mayfield at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 23. The winner advances to the Class 1A state championship to take on the winner of the Hazard/Fairview game.

Kenton hoops teams hit the court

“Our team has a ton of potential but we will be playing with a lot of inexperienced players to begin the season so it will be extremely important for our staff to remain patient with our youngsters,” Chevalier said. “We need to weather our difficult schedule and see the big picture which is improvement through March and to be competitive at the district and regional level by the end of the season.” Starting the tough schedule is a home game against Newport Central Catholic Wednesday, Nov. 28.

Basketball season is falling into place as winter approaches. Games start Nov. 26 in Northern Kentucky. Here is a look at local teams:


The Tigers were 8-20 last year for Michael Miller, who returns for his second year as head coach. Returning starters are Chase Maus and Max Nussbaum, who return for their third season in that role. Senior Brandon Marksberry, junior Max Shover and freshman Kyle Fieger are the top new contributors to the rotation. The Tigers will adjust as usual as several football players will be late coming to the hardcourt. Beechwood’s first game is not until Dec. 5, at home against Covington Latin. Beechwood will be in the Bracken County holiday tourney Dec. 26-29.


Covington Catholic

The Colonels were 17-14 last year and 35th District runner-up. They return four starters and add a lot of depth from the junior varsity and freshman teams this season for second-year head coach Scott Ruthsatz. Junior point guard Nick Ruthsatz returns after averaging 19 points per game last year. Other returning starters are senior guard Nick Fredrick, senior center Zack Tobler and senior forward Sawyer Pauly. Tobler averaged 12.3 points per game and Fredrick 8.7. Fredrick led the team with 53 threes made. Leading the newcomers are sophomore center Bo Schuh, junior center Mark Schult and junior forward Ben Heppler. The Colonels’ goal this year is to continue an uptempo style on offense and improve on defense. Cov Cath has a challenging schedule this year, playing at Clark County Tuesday, Nov. 27. Cov Cath plays Taft Dec.1and has its home opener Dec. 7 against Pendleton County. The Colonels will play in the Lloyd holiday tourney Dec. 27-29 and will be in the Scott County showcase Jan. 17-19.

Covington Latin

Head coach Gene Morrison returns everyone from last year’s team, which finished 7-20. The team builds around senior forward Mitchell Blewett, who

Covington Catholic point guard Nick Ruthsatz, right, is one of the top point guards in the area. FILE PHOTO put up some of the best numbers in the state last year, averaging 27 points and 13.3 rebounds a contest. Blewett has a chance to beat David Justice’s school scoring record this year. Senior Dorien Clark led the team with 3.5 assists a game last year and really improved last season, Morrison said. Clark averaged 13 points a game. Senior Ben Knapmeyer, a wing and point guard, averaged 13.4 points a game. Adam Green, who missed last season to injury, is strong on defense, rebounding and perimeter shooting and could be a key contributor. “We hope to improve on last season’s record,” Morrison said. “I think our perimeter play will

be better on offense and defense. Our rebounding should be solid and improved from last season. We learned a lot from last season and hope to pick up from there and begin the season ready to play.” The Trojans start the season at Williamstown Tuesday, Nov. 17, and at Villa Madonna Dec. 3. The Trojans will play in the Silver Grove holiday tourney Dec. 2729.

Dixie Heights

Brandon Hatton returns for his junior year as one of the top players in the state. The 6-foot-3 guard won’t have a lot of experience around him as the season begins for the Colonels, who went 20-11 and were conference cham-

pions in Division I. Hatton is the lone returning starter for Dixie, averaging 19.5 points per game last year. He enters the year with 1,662 points already, 218 away from the school record. Hatton has drawn a lot of Division I attention. Nick Niehaus, a 6-3 sophomore, was a valuable sixth man last year and looks to step up this year. Junior guard Adam Daria looks to step up in the backcourt. Ken Chevalier enters his ninth season at Dixie with a 143-95 record. He said Dixie should have good size across the board with a lot of players in the 6-3 range, so post play and rebounding should be a strength. The lack of varsity experience is a preseason concern.

The Juggernauts had a strong end to last season, winning the 34th District and reaching the semifinals of the Ninth Region Tournament. Lloyd was 16-16 overall. Lloyd lost several key seniors from that team, including allaround threat Tyler Bray as they try to sustain that momentum this season with six seniors. Two of them were regular starters last year, guards Niko Carter and Jarice Ewell. Carter averaged 10.3 points per game and made 52 three-pointers. Ewell averaged three points a game. D’Andre Thompson, Addison Brown, Codi Krebs and Tomi Mejolagbe are other seniors. “This group has been playing together since middle school,” said Mike Key, who enters his seventh season as Lloyd head coach. “They have a really good chemistry. If they can capitalize on their ability to play together they will be a strong group. We look forward to defending the 34th district championship and seeing how we can play down the stretch.” Lloyd opens the season at Holmes Friday, Nov. 30. Lloyd’s first home game is Dec. 7 against Prestonsburg. Lloyd will host its annual holiday tournament Dec. 27-29. Before that, the Juggernauts will play in the Swauger Classic at Bellevue.

CovCath, SK ousted from playoffs By James Weber

Covington Catholic lost 28-13 to Highlands in the 4A regional finals, its ninth-straight loss to the Bluebirds. Cov Cath finished 9-4 for the season. Blake Bir threw for 167 yards and one touchdown, a nine-yard pass to Sam Dressman. Bobby Beatrice had a 15-yard scoring run in the third quarter to pull the Colonels within eight points at 2113. Cov Cath committed four turnovers, which hurt its cause. Cov Cath was limited to 249 yards of-

fense but held Highlands to 284 in turn. Bir ended the season with more than 2,800 yards passing and 38 touchdowns. Simon Kenton lost 47-9 to Scott County in the Class 6A regional final.

district and regional titles this year with a veteran team, led by senior forward Nick Jackson. Jackson, 6-foot-3, averaged 16 points and seven rebounds a game last season. Jackson can play several sports and is equally comfortable shooting outside and playing bigger than his height inside. Scott returns four starters and most of its key bench players from last season. Senior guard Eric Pouncy averaged six points and two assists a game. He is a very quick player and will need to lead on both sides of the floor at point guard, Carr said. Senior guard Josh Felts averaged10 points and two rebounds a game. He shot 47 percent from three-point range and Carr is looking for him to be a more complete player this season. Pete Ohmer and 6-foot-7 Luka Jovici was seniors who will look to add to the mix this year. Jovici is a foreign exchange student from Luxembourg. Carr said the team should be athletic and deep this season, and a strong shooting team. The coach said a key to the season is for the team to show toughness in the face of adversity and step up its defense. Scott starts the season at Ryle Monday, Nov. 26 and has its home opener Wednesday, Nov. 28 against Silver Grove.

St. Henry

Dave Faust returns an experienced team as he returns for his 20th season as head coach with a 303-247 record. St. Henry was 1214 last season. The Crusaders return two starters in senior guard Darius Meiman and senior forward Mitchell Kuebbing. Meiman av-

Remembering Malala Yousefzai

Malala Yousefzai. MA-LA-LA YOU-SEF ZAI. Remember this 15-year-old Pakistani schoolgirl’s name. This fall she was shot in the head and neck by gunmen who judge that the education of girls is morally wrong. (Western culture, including Christianity, isn’t fully past such an assessment. As far as religious denominations limit women’s full participation, how can we gloat over any superiority to fundamentalist Islam?) Malala is now at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, England, which treats war casualties and specializes in trauma. Remarkably, she is showing no signs of brain damage, although she will be in the hospital for months and need skull reconstruction. One of the bullets chipped her skull, but didn’t penetrate her brain. More luck than Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Yousefzai has spoken out for

the rights of girls and women to attend school since she was 11. She posted a BBC blog in 2009 about oppression under the Vickie Taliban regime. Cimprich Since she was COMMUNITY shot, Pakistanis RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST throughout the country have moved beyond their religious, ethnic and political comfort zones to speak for the rights of girls and women. Her witness gives heart to her classmates in the Swat region and throughout Pakistan in the face of the violence and poverty that destroys schools and can frighten off students and teachers.

to Malala and her colleagues to act. (Throughout U.S. politicians’ debates and stump speeches this fall, I heard little enough about the concrete issues of importance to me: health care and immigration law reform, hunger, carbon emissions, environmental protection. “Nuns on the bus” logged miles where candidates feared to tread.)

Flu vaccine worth needle stick So far this year, only the state of New York reports a high incidence of influenza, or the flu. So, just what does $25 and a needle stick (vaccine) buy me? If you are at least 65 years old the vaccine cuts your risk of death in half over the flu season. The same study also found flu vaccine lowered the risk of hospitalization for stroke and heart disease – cut by 20 percent – and reduced hospitalizations for pneumonia and influenza (30 percent). If you are over the age of six months, your flu shot helps protect all your fellow humans from the flu and its complications. This benefit is called “herd immunity.” Getting back to what is in it for you as an individual, a healthy vaccinated adult under 65 years old has fewer feverish illnesses (20 percent), fewer days of lost work, fewer health provider visits and less antibiotic use. For children over six months as well as adults, the vaccine reduces likelihood influenza illness by 50 to 70 percent. Children between ages 2 and 4 had fewer trips to the emergency room. And their vaccine status is associated with fewer ER trips for their older siblings. Somewhat less protection (40 to 50 percent) is reported for the chronically ill, who may still benefit in reduction of hospital admissions for heart

disease, pneumonia and stroke. A highdose vaccine is available for the elderly. Data on whether it is better Carl Gandola than the regular vaccine is COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST expected soon. COLUMNIST Pregnant women are vulnerable to more severe illness when they catch the flu. Many studies have shown the safety of the vaccine in pregnant women. The Center for Disease Control recommends all pregnant women get the vaccine. Of health workers in 2010, 63 percent got vaccinated. They may have done themselves and their patients a favor. Studies of New Mexico long-term care facilities have shown a 42 percent reduction in health worker sick leave, and reductions in patient flu outbreaks and death. We start shedding viruses a day or two before we develop symptoms. So even doing the right thing and staying at home when sick may not protect your patients as much as your getting vaccinated. Does the vaccine “give me the flu?” It may seem to, since the vaccine is given in the season for viral illnesses. But less than 1 percent of people with injectable vaccine get flu-like symptoms (fever, aches) after

the vaccine. After getting the vaccine protection takes a week or two to develop and even then is not 100 percent protection (generally 50 to 70 percent). It is a misconception that the vaccine causes the flu. Some also fear Guillaine-Barré, a temporary neurologic weakness made infamous with the 1976 swine flu vaccine. A review published this year has found this rare syndrome may happen in two per million doses, with no increased frequency in people under 50 years old. Last year pharmacists and nurse practitioners at a large pharmacy chain vaccinated about 5.5 million people. The majority of people still get vaccinated at a doctor’s office. In a recent year 43 percent of Americans were vaccinated. Medicare and many private insurance plans cover the vaccine. It is not possible yet to predict the severity of flu this season. Over the past 30 years influenza annually has caused around 200,000 hospitalizations and between 3,000 and 49,000 deaths. A needle stick and $25 can reduce your missed days from work, cut your risk of hospitalization and death, and protect friends, family and the chronically ill around you. It is your choice. Dr. Carl Gandola is with St. Elizabeth Physicians’ internal medicine office in Covington.

Does rape justify abortion? In this election cycle, the question was raised as to whether a child conceived in the horrible act of rape should be killed by abortion. Capital punishment for the innocent child for the criminal act of the father ignores the inviolable principle that all human beings have an inalienable right to life. The woman who has conceived a child by the violent act of rape needs understanding, encouragement, and support by family, friends and the entire community. An abortion cannot and will Fred H. not remove the Summe suffering from COMMUNITY such trauma RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST nor provide the woman relief from the violence of rape. “I soon discovered that the aftermath of my abortion continued a long time after the memory of my rape had faded. I felt empty and horrible,” recalls Jackie Bakker, a victim of rape, as reported in Celebrate Life, published by American Life League. “Rape and incest victims actually suffer considerably from the abortion. What are some of the symptoms of rape? The woman feels dirty, guilty, sexually violated, down on herself, angry, and fearful or hateful toward men; she may experience sexual dysfunction, or feel she has lost control of her life,” explains David C. Reardon, director of Eliot Institute for Social Sciences Research. He explains that these are the same symptoms of abortion. “So instead of curing the problem, we are intensifying the same symptoms by offering abortion. Abortion, then, is a ‘cure’ that only aggravates the problem.” As reported by, rape victim Shauna Prewitt, in an open letter, writes: “Although I would not be

able to articulate it for months, I was experiencing a most curious emotion toward the life growing inside of me, an emotion that both enlivened me and caused me to experience an intolerable shame. You see, to my surprise, I did not altogether hate the life growing inside of me. Instead, I felt a sort of kinship, a partnership – perhaps the kind that only develops between those who have suffered together – but, nevertheless, I felt a bond.” “One of the greatest things I’ve learned is that the rapist is not my creator, as some people would have me believe. My value and identity are not established as a ‘product of rape,’ but as a child of God,” claims Rebecca Kiessling, who is the “product” of a rape, and who authored the pamphlet “Conceived in Rape: A Story of Hope.” “As someone who really cares about rape victims,” continues Kiessling, “I want to protect them from the rapist, and from the abortion, and not the baby. A baby is not the worst thing that could ever happen to a rape victim – an abortion is.” Georgette Forney, co-founder of Silent No More Awareness Campaign, in an interview with LifeSiteNews, states that most “women are having abortions because they don’t feel they have the support system to have the child.” The message society is giving to women today, said Forney, is that women aren’t strong enough to handle an unplanned pregnancy. “In all honesty,” she said, “women are the stronger of the two sexes; we can move mountains when it comes to protecting our children. “We’re taking away from women the ability to dig deep down and find the depth of character and strength to care for our children.” No matter how conceived, a child is a unique and precious gift from God.

For a fun food, pick up a pomegranate

The edible portions of the fruit include the seeds and the arils or juicy translucent flesh surrounding the seed. The white pith and rind are not eaten. PROVIDED

If you are looking for a fun food to try at home, pick up a pomegranate. After peeling the tough outer skin, you will find small red jewels that are great to eat out of hand, add to a salad, or combine with any number of ingredients for everything from appetizers to entrees. The edible portions of the fruit include the seeds and the arils or juicy translucent flesh surrounding the seed. The white pith and rind are not eaten. Ripe pomegranates are somewhat square in shape. When choosing a pomegranate, choose one that is heavy for its size. This indicates it has more juice. Also choose one that is free from cracks. A medium-sized pomegranate provides about 105 calories and is

a good source of potassium. It also provides some vitamin C and fiber. There are small amounts of other nutrients in this fruit, too. Pomegranates Diane also have phyMason tochemicals, or EXTENSION plant chemicals, NOTES that have been shown to provide health benefits. The phytochemicals in pomegranates help reduce inflammation in our bodies and protect our cells from oxidation damage. The antioxidants found in pomegranates and other red berries have been linked to reducing heart disease and cancer risk.

The edible seeds can be removed by cutting off the crown end and lightly scoring the skin from top to bottom. Then break open the fruit. Once opened, the seeds can be easily removed by rolling your thumb over them to separate them from the white pith. Be sure to wear an apron or old clothes as pomegranate juice will stain and be difficult to remove. Another suggestion to remove the seeds is to cut off the crown and score the skin. Then submerge the fruit in a bowl of water and divide it into sections. Roll the seeds from the pith while the fruit is submerged under water. The seeds will sink and the pith and peel will float. Remove the pith and peel from the water and drain the edible seeds

through a colander. Whole pomegranates should keep well at room temperature for up to a week and in the refrigerator in an air-tight container for up to three months. Refrigerated seeds will keep for three to five days or may be frozen for up to six months. Juice from the pomegranate can be frozen for long-term storage. When freezing, allow ½-inch headspace for expansion. Frozen juice should be used within one year. Brighten your dishes this fall and winter with the colorful red arils of the pomegranate.

Use leftover turkey for stovetop pie Stovetop turkey pot pie What to do with that leftover turkey? Make a pot pie. This works well with chicken, too. Depending upon how your turkey was seasoned to begin with, you may need more garlic, thyme, etc. 3 cups cooked turkey or chicken, diced 1 ⁄2 pound hot sausage, cooked 1 ⁄2 stick butter 1 ⁄3 cup flour 1 teaspoon garlic 1 ⁄4 teaspoon dried thyme 14.5 oz. can chicken broth or more, if needed 2 ⁄3 cup milk Salt and pepper Peas and carrots, as many as you like Good optional add-ins: sliced mushrooms, potatoes, etc.

Melt butter and stir in flour. Cook to get the raw taste of the flour out, but don’t let brown. Add garlic, thyme, broth and milk.

Stove top turkey pot pie can help use up those Thanksgiving leftovers. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD. Cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened. It will look a bit lumpy at first, but will smooth out. Add turkey, sausage and vegetables. Cook until heated through, about 10-15 minutes. Season to taste. Ladle over hot baked biscuits that you’ve split into two, or into puff pastry shells that you’ve baked ahead. You can also put the filling in a pie plate or casserole, cut out a puff pastry or pie dough top to fit and pre-bake the top. Lay on top of casserole to serve. To finish in oven: Pour mixture after it’s

cooked into a sprayed, shallow casserole. Top with pie crust and bake at 425 degrees until golden brown. You can also bake it with a biscuit topping. Follow directions for baking biscuits and use that temperature: Put the biscuits on top of the pie and bake.


This Italian lemon liqueur is an elegant addition to your party or dinner drink offerings, but is expensive to buy. The great thing about this is it keeps just about forever in the freezer. Sometimes I’ll

mix limes and lemons together. Make now for gift giving. Check out my blog for photos. 2 generous pounds lemons, thick-skinned 4 cups good quality vodka 3 cups sugar 3 cups water

Pour vodka in large glass jar. Remove peel from lemons with a vegetable peeler. Take off all of the pith – that’s the white part – from the peel as it is really bitter. If you can’t get it all off, do the best you can. Place peel in jar with vodka and cover. Let sit at room temperature for at least one week. Some recipes recommend a dark place. I like to leave it out


form than the Fraser, which is a naturally pyramid-shaped tree, with even shorter needles than the Douglas. Both trees have good needle retention and a pleasant scent. Another fir that has been grown locally in recent years is the Canaan Fir, which also makes a great, soft-textured, pleasantly scented tree. Spruces are also sold, but they usually don’t hold their needles as long as other species. For the freshest tree, the ideal choice is one that has been locally grown. It’s also fun to go pick out

and cut your own tree from a local Christmas tree farm. The Kentucky Christmas Tree Association has a list of member tree farms on their Web site, This site also provides detailed information about each variety of Christmas tree. If you plan to purchase a tree from a tree lot, it might be better to purchase that tree early for the purpose of getting it in water and out of drying weather conditions as soon as possible. Once you get your tree home, it’s a good

idea to cut off one or two inches from the bottom of the trunk. Place the tree in a bucket of warm water and store it away from drying sun or wind, preferably in a cool garage or enclosed sun porch where the water in the bucket won’t freeze. Once brought inside the house, be careful to place your tree away from sources of heat such as fireplaces, stoves, heat registers or radiators. Keeping the thermostat set at a lower temperature will help to prevent the tree from drying out too quickly. Keep the tree well-watered. A fresh tree can easily drink a gallon or more of water each day, so using a tree-stand that holds at least that much water will make your job easier.

Pining for perfect Christmas tree Question: Which variety of Christmas tree will hold its needles the best for the holidays? Answer: In Kentucky, many Christmas tree farmers plant white pine and Scotch pine. The white pine retains its needles, which have a soft, flexible texture. The trees are often sheared into a pyraMike midal Klahr shape, HORTICULTURE though this CONCERNS often makes the tree very dense, which makes it difficult to hang large ornaments. The Scotch pine’s needles are shorter than those of the white pine and the color can vary from bright green to dark green to some trees that exhibit more bluish tones. The species retains its needles well and resists drying. Douglasfirs and Fraser firs are also popular choices at local tree lots. The Douglasfir has dark green or blue green needles that are shorter and softer than pine needles. Shearing gives it a denser

You can leave the lemon peels in the vodka for a few weeks. Now bring the sugar and water to a simmer and stir until sugar dissolves and thickens a bit. Let cool and then add that to vodka mixture and stir. Strain and put in pretty bottles. Seal and chill a month in refrigerator (or a couple weeks in freezer) before using. To use, serve straight over ice chips, mix with sparkling wine or mineral water and a lemon curl, toss with fresh fruit, serve over ice cream, frozen yogurt or simple cake.

Yesterday I was sorting through the boxes of outdoor lights for our trees and wondering if we’re going to have to purchase more lights. The trees have grown quite a bit since last year, including a small potted evergreen that Rita Ron Wilson Heikenfeld of Natorp’s, RITA’S KITCHEN our garden guru, gave me. I may put that one on the sideboard in the kitchen. The holidays really are fast approaching, aren’t they? Hanukkah, Christmas, Boxing Day and Kwanzaa are all times to celebrate family, friends and food. I’ll be sharing my best recipes, along with yours, so send your faves to me along with the story of why the recipe is special.



Protect yourself by using credit card for Internet purchases When paying for something on the Internet, it’s very important to protect yourself just in case you don’t get what you’ve ordered. Unfortunately, all too often consumers use their debit card and end up getting burned. That’s what happened to Tonya Coffey of Fairfield Township, who needs to stay in touch with her 28-year-old daughter. Her daughter has been in prison for the past year and a half and stays connected to the family by telephone. “The main factor here is she has a 31⁄2-year-old daughter that we have. For her sake we want to maintain that communication. That’s really important to us and it’s important to her. She has a mommy and wants to talk to her,” Coffey said Trying to save money on pre-paid calls from prison, Coffey saw an ad from a company claiming it could save her big money on such calls. “They responded quickly after I made my $194 payment. I subscribed to a two-year plan,” Coffey said. But Coffey ran into trouble with the jail’s regular phone network when she tried to use this new company’s service.

“The jail’s phone network asked me a lot of questions I couldn’t answer. So they would not permit me to have an account,” Coffey Howard said. Ain The company HEY HOWARD! Coffey paid advertised a 100 percent money-back guarantee. But although she wrote them seeking a refund, she didn’t get it. Then she wrote them she had contacted me and that got her a reply. “They did send me an e-mail back saying they were having trouble with their claims processor, with technical issues, to refund the money and they would be getting back to me. That was the last correspondence I got,” Coffey said. Coffey got that response back in June and says now she can’t even reach the company by phone. “That’s no longer in operation. Any email that I now send them comes back undeliverable,” she said. Unfortunately, Coffey paid this company with her debit card so the money came right

out of her bank account. She didn’t use a credit card because she didn’t have one. But if you’re planning on buying something over the Internet, you need to have a credit card so you can dispute the charge with the credit card company. In this case, since Coffey didn’t get the service claimed – and failed to get the promised refund – she could have received her money from a credit card company. If you can’t qualify for a credit card, that should not stop you. You can get a secured credit card from a local bank. For instance, one local bank charges $24 per year for such a card and allows you to deposit as little as $300 into a savings account at the bank. Your credit line will be tied to the amount of money in your savings account. The bank charge is relatively modest when you consider the protection it offers should you need to buy something over the Internet.

Holiday events planned in Burlington By Stephanie Salmons

BURLINGTON — An annual Christmas tradition is coming back to Burlington, bringing with it a weekend full of holiday fun. The Historic Burlington Business Association will host a Burlington Christmas Dec. 7-9. The weekend kicks off at 5:45 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7, with a tree lighting ceremony at the Gazebo between the old courthouse and the Boone County Administration Building. Hot chocolate and doughnuts will be available. According to HBBA treasurer Linda Whittenburg, owner of Cabin Arts, Santa arrives at 6:30 p.m. A train display will be at the Farm Bureau Insurance from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 7 and 8, and Burlington Baptist Church will have a live Nativity from 5-7 p.m. Friday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

On Saturday, the Boone County Historical Society has a “Christmas in the Country” exhibit from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 8 at the Old Clerk’s Building. Live alpacas from Eagle Bend Alpacas will be set up by the old courthouse at 1 p.m. Saturday. Washington Square Cafe will have hot chocolate and cookie decorations from 2-5 p.m. Saturday and from 1-5 p.m. Sunday. The Boone County Visual Artists Showcase will also be held that weekend at the Main branch of the Boone County Public Library in Burlington, from 6-8:30 p.m. Dec. 7, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Dec. 8, and from 1-4 p.m. Dec. 9. The Santa Paws pet parade will begin at 1 p.m. Sunday at the old courthouse. Dinsmore Homestead will have weekend activities as well. The Dinsmore Holiday Shop will be open in the

According to Dinsmore executive director Marty McDonald, the items are “the kind of items in our gift shop that would be good holiday gifts and holiday decorations.” With each purchase, patrons get an entry for a raffle for a Cabin Arts gift certificate. Artists and crafters in-

terested in selling their wares should call 859-5866117. Dinsmore’s annual Christmas in the Country is from 1-5 p.m. Dec. 8-9. McDonald said the Boone County Garden Club will be decorating with natural items in a “vintage style.” From 2-4 p.m. dulcimer players Hank and Dana Gruber will perform.

Visitors can walk through the house and there will be crafts and a scavenger hunt for kids. From 6-8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, the Forget-Me-Not Historical Dancers will be dressed in 1850s attire, dancing in the main hall of the main house. Candle light tours are available from 6-8 p.m. It’s a “wonderful heritage event” for the holi-

days, McDonald said. “Dinsmore brings history to life,” she said. “This brings the holiday heritage. (It’s) a very special heritage event.” Cost is $5 for adults, $3 for seniors and Dinsmore members, $2 for children ages 5-17 and free for children under 5. The homestead will also be open for regular tours beginning at at 1 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. Dec. 15 and 16. Dec. 16 is the last tour day for the season. According to Whittenburg, the Burlington Christmas event is an important tradition for the Burlington community – and shows there’s another side to Christmas other than the commercialized side. “It’s a way to enjoy a nice peaceful day in the country without the stress and rushing that’s involved in our everyday pursuits of the holidays.”

Michael, rebuilt for her. She is the daughter of Chuck McWilliams, well known as a former race car driver and owner of Union Auto Parts. Karen was diagnosed in 1998 with osteosarcoma of the right femur. Following amputation of her right leg and chemotherapy, Karen has remained active the past 15 years, walking everywhere on crutches. Last February the cancer returned and Karen lost her right hip, and in August, it returned causing multiple tumors. Michael and Karen are driving continuously to St. Louis for treatment at a leading sarcoma clinic. Monetary donations may also be made to the Karen Verst Fund at The Bank of Kentucky.
