BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Donna Yeager looks back on years of service She was first elected in 1998 Melissa Reinert mreinert@communitypress.com

INDEPENDENCE – Donna Yeager has never been afraid to ask the bold questions. Like: “Will you give us money for ... a senior center... an amphitheater... our parks?” “If you don’t ask, they don’t know that you need it,” Yeager, longtime Independence councilwoman, said. Yeager, 83, was first elected to public office in 1998. Since then she has served seven terms on council and two years as mayor of a city that has doubled in population since 2000. “I got involved because there were so many things to be done,” she said. “I started with the parks and then everyone talked me into running for office.” Yeager has been instrumental in making the city’s Parks and Recreation Department what it is today: Six parks, a slew of programs and events, an amphitheater and senior center. Earlier this year, Yeager announced her retirement. Monday, Dec. 5, at 7 p.m., she’ll attend her last council meeting as an elected official. According to Councilwoman Carol Franzen, Yeager will be missed. “It won’t be the same without her,” Franzen said. “She’s been there since I’ve been on

down to Frankfort and said something to Gov. (Paul) Patton. We put in for the grant again next year and we got it.” When the $250,000 matching grant didn’t cover the cost, Yeager went to the county for additional funds.

$1 million. We made it. The senior center was built and opened in 2001. Donna is tenacious.” Yeager put her boldness to use again raising funds for the amphitheater which is named in her honor. Chris Moriconi, city administrator and former mayor, said Yeager has always been a strong advocate for Independence. “Her passion and input on our parks and recreation programs is visible today in the quality of parks and events throughout the city,” he said. “Many of our parks including the senior center would not be here today without her efforts. During my tenure as mayor, I found it appropriate to name our amphitheater after her as a small token of our appreciation.” Current Mayor Chris Reinersman finds inspiration in Yeager.

“Our city is blessed to have a long list of community servants,” he said. “You would be hard pressed, however, to find someone with as long or extensive a history of service as Donna Yeager.” From her many years in the Independence Volunteer Fire Department’s Ladies Auxiliary, as well as the ambulance service, her resume of public service also includes volunteering on a recreation committee that saw the city’s crown Memorial Park materialize, bringing the Independence Senior and Community Center to fruition after she sat outside the governor’s office to lobby for funding, to her long service on the Independence City Council, even stepping up to fill the remainder of a term as interim mayor when asked by her fellow council members, he said. “Donna has left wonderful footprints on this city that residents will benefit from for years to come,” Reinersman said. Yeager was just as successful in her personal life. She and her late husband of 36 years raised five children, two of whom have passed. She has 12 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren. Now that she’s retiring, Yeager jokingly said she plans to “rest,” but she knows she’ll stay busy. She hopes to spend more time with friends, especially her best friend, Stan Kahrs. “It’s really been great (serving the community),” Yeager said. “I’ve enjoyed it.” Want to continue the conversation?

Remke Markets Makes Online Grocery Shopping Convenient Pat Iasillo Over the past decade our world has become more accustomed to shopping online for the products we want. It makes sense not to waste time and effort shopping if we can just as easily click a few buttons to accomplish the same thing. However, there has been some reluctance when it comes to products we like to feel and touch before we buy. We don’t mind purchasing a book online or the latest toy, but some of us like to try on a pair a shoes before we buy them or like to feel the material on an article of clothing. The same thing is even more true when it comes to shopping for food. We want to be

in control when we pick our apples or our lettuce, or a beef roast. Therefore, shopping online for our groceries has met with some resistance. It can also be painful to sort through over 30,000 products to find what we want. That is all changing. Remke Markets has carefully thought through these issues before we offered an online solution to our customers. After all, we have been in business for almost 120 years, partly because we keep the wants and needs of our customers at the top of the list on our approach to the grocery business. That is why we offer something a little different; a personal shopper. Our personal shoppers

are carefully chosen to be as picky as our pickiest customers when it comes to choosing what to put in the basket. They also are people who are anxious to learn just what you like, how you like it, and if they don’t know, they will call you and ask before they choose. We feel confident you will be pleased that your shopper will far exceed your expectations. Couple a personal shopper with the ease of the Remke Mobile Markets website and you have a means of shopping for your groceries that is second to none. With your registration of your Remke Rewards card on our website, you now have access to the top 100 items you normally purchase at your fingertips. You may also like to shop our weekly ad. Now all you need do is click on an item when viewing our ad and presto, it

is on your shopping list. In addition, we have made it simple to shop for anything in our store by using our search bar, or by searching through every department and category. We even have an app available for download on your Apple or Android mobile device, and you can use it to scan the UPC barcodes of the items in your house to add them directly to your list. Once you finish your order, you may choose a pick up time even on the same day! Drive to the store, call or text the phone number on the sign posted in our designated pick up spot, and your order will be brought out and loaded into your car. Scan your credit card and you are on your way. The fee is waived on your first four orders so you have nothing to lose to give Remke Mobile Markets a try!

Time to nominate Neighbors Who Care Every year, around New Year’s, the Community Recorder salutes hometown people who show us what it means to be a good neighbor. We call it “Neighbors Who Care.” And we need your help. If you know someone who regularly embodies the spirit of “Neighbors Who Care” we’d like to hear from you. Perhaps they organized a Neighborhood Watch in your subdivision, or they went to bat for a new recycling center. Maybe they started a clothing drive for homeless people, or helped out a family after a fire destroyed their house. We want to spotlight the people who don’t seek recognition but who do the work that makes our community a better place to live. Send your “Neighbors Who Care” nomination in Northern Kentucky to ndaly@nky.com. You may also mail to: Neighbors Who Care, Community Recorder, 228 Grandview Drive, Fort Mitchell, KY 41017. Include your name, community and contact information, as well as a few paragraphs describing why your nominee merits recognition. Your “Neighbor Who Cares” does not have to live directly next door to you. They can live up to a county or two away and their good works can help a few or many in your town or county in Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties. What matters is the good they’ve done for you or your neighborhood, or for the community at large. Please send nominations by Dec. 6. Questions? Call 578-1059.

Have yourself a healthy holiday in Lakeside Park Laura A. Hobson Community Recorder Contributor

LAKESIDE PARK – Residents of Lakeside Park are receiving wake-up calls either from their significant other, friend or physician to become healthier. Under the direction of Grace Neltner, Lakeside Park Recreation Department offers several activities for area residents in its effort to promote good health, fitness and fun. She thinks out of the box to plan

events that make heartwarming memories for all ages. “We might be a small city of only about 2,800 residents, but we have mighty strength and determination,” Neltner said. A walking group for all ages organized by Lisa Moellering, city health coach, started in September and lasted through mid-November. People of all levels of fitness chose from a variety of routes throughout the city. Over a dozen residents participated. The village will offer the walking group again

in the spring. Lakeside Park partners with residents in Fort Mitchell for ice skating on Nov. 23. The party will last from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Northern Kentucky Ice Center in Crescent Springs. It is free and no registration is necessary. Light Up Lakeside, a traditional holiday event, is scheduled for Dec. 4. Boy Scouts light over 400 luminaries. Seven horse-drawn carriages join the festivities. Call Lisa Moellering at 859-462-0108 to sched-

ule a ride. Lakeside Park and the local Barleycorn’s are teaming up for the annual party at 5:30-8 p.m. Dec. 4. Santa Claus will pay a visit. Kids can enjoy free hot chocolate, cookies and candy canes. The village will also host a holiday decoration contest. Submit your nominations by noon Dec. 8 via email at lsp_rec@fuse.net or call 859426-7200. Only one entry per resident. Prize winners will be notified by Dec. 13.

Erlanger man sees to it veteran flag cases made in USA Sarah Brookbank sbrookbank@communitypress.com

When fallen veterans are buried, loved ones are presented with a flag to honor those who have served. In 2015, Joe Montgomery attended the funeral at Kentucky Veterans Cemetery North in Williamstown. He noticed a “Made in China” sticker on the back of a burial flag case and something clicked. Montgomery, an Erlanger resident and son of a Marine veteran, had been working with a group of veterans for more than eight years on Tailgates for Troops as a way to honor his father. The group made cornhole sets and sent them to bases around the world. Eight years ago, Montgomery had no intention of starting a nonprofit. It was just a hobby, a way to give back. “When I thought about that (‘Made in China’) sticker, I decided we were going to do something about it. We sourced the wood, the glass and the backing and we started making flag cases,” Montgomery said.

Operation Honor was officially founded as a nonprofit in February 2015 and is based in Owen County. Montgomery said he would love to be able to build flag cases for every World War II veteran that passes. A warehouse will also store them to make more cases and to allow veterans’ groups to volunteer to make cases. Operation Honor has started a GoFundMe to raise $50,000 for Veteran’s Point, complex with a warehouse for building flag cases, a conference center and potentially some lodging. With a warehouse, the group will have a dedicated space instead of hopping around Northern Kentucky in open spaces. “We want to touch as many veterans’ lives as possible. We’re creating feelings and emotions in these veterans that they can’t replicate in their day-to-day lives and I am blessed to be a part of it,” Montgomery said. Over Veterans Day weekend Montgomery, his father and one of the veterans of Operation Honor went to Arlington National Cemetery in Washing-

ton, D.C., to present six flag cases. Its gift shop is now selling Operation Honor flag cases. Each case is signed by the veteran who made it. Over the next two weeks Operation Honor will make about 100 flag cases, 50 of which have already been purchased. “I’ve talked to thousands of people and I’m still waiting for the first one to tell me that it’s a bad idea,” Montgomery said. “You can find a flag case that is

made in the USA, but each of our cases is unique. Each of our cases is perfectly imperfect, from the stain, to the wood grain and the veteran who signs it. If you buy our cases they are unique and it will be a case for you, not anyone else.” For more information on Operation Honor visit http://operationhonor.org/ to donate to them visit https:// www.gofundme. com/veteransburial-flag- cases-2ur76y4.

Return to the lost tea rooms of downtown Cincinnati Reminisce with me for a moment, won’t you, about the lost tea rooms of downtown Cincinnati? “It was a different time. Ladies wore gloves, hats and nice attire to luncheons at the Woman’s Exchange. Shillito’s provided a cosmopolitan environment for its patrons, while Mullane’s was the perfect place to sip and socialize. The popular “Good Morning Show” radio program Rita hosted by charmHeikenfeld ing Bob Braun, and later Nick RITA’S KITCHEN Clooney, was broadcast from McAlpin’s Tea Room. Women gathered at Pogue’s and Mabley & Carew tea rooms to celebrate birthdays, as well as wedding and baby showers, over dainty tea sandwiches.” That’s what is written on the back of Cynthia Kuhn Beischel’s latest book titled “Lost Tea Rooms of Downtown Cincinnati” (American Palate Press, $21.99). You may remember Cynthia as the author of the now iconic book “Virginia Bakery Remembered.” Well, her latest book on the lost tea rooms of downtown Cincinnati is a delightful and insightful history lesson of our beloved downtown in an era when folks actually got dressed up to go downtown, even to shop. And it’s chock full of recipes and the stories behind them. It even includes beautiful photos of some of the food, along with photos of the actual menu covers and historical black and white pictures. From mock turtle soup to

Cucumber tea sandwich from an era when folks actually got dressed up to go downtown, even to shop.

Maurice salad to cucumber sandwiches to nectar sodas, the recipes will time morph you back to a mid-century bustling downtown Cincinnati. My Mom and Dad started married life downtown and I like to think as a young couple they may have stopped into one of the tea rooms. If they did, they had plenty of places to choose from. One of the most popular was the Shillito’s/Lazarus tea room. One of their most requested dishes was this ham loaf. It’s a nice way to use that leftover holiday ham. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator, Jungle Jim’s Eastgate culinary professional and author. Find her blog online at Abouteating.com. Email her at rita@communitypress.com with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line.

Combine the pineapple, sugar and 3/4 cup of water in a saucepan. Over medium heat, heat to boiling. Mix the cornstarch with remaining 1/4 cup of water. Add cornstarch mixture to the hot pineapple mixture and cook until sauce is slightly thickened and becomes clear.

Cucumber tea sandwiches I adapted this only slightly from the book, adding 2 layers of bread and half-and-half instead of cream. A staple in tea rooms.

Spread with cream cheese mixture; place a cucumber slice on top and sprinkle lightly with parsley. Tip from Rita’s kitchen English cucumbers work very well in this recipe. I don’t peel them.

Tips to protect your family this fall Now that Northern Kentucky children are well into the school year, many families are adapting to new routines, with bus pick-ups, fall sports and nightly homework sessions. But your new routines can easily be disrupted by illness, which also increase as children head back to school. Some tips to help keep your family healthy this fall. Zika virus: The Northern Kentucky Health Department continues to monitor for Zika virus globally and locally. Zika virus is transmitted primarily through the bite of infected mosquitoes. To date, all cases of Zika in Northern Kentucky have been linked to travel outside the United States. But, the potential for Zika to be transmitted to mosquitoes in Northern Kentucky exists. So, we all need to take steps to fight the bite. This includes taking steps to eliminate potential breeding areas for mosquitoes in your yard, such as birdbaths, clogged gutters, kiddie pools, old tires, flower

pots or even Fido’s water bowl, by emptying these items or changing Dr. Lynne M. out water Saddler every few days. You COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST can also COLUMNIST apply a mosquito larvicide, purchased at local hardware stores, to areas of standing water. Northern Kentucky families should also take steps to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes throughout both day and night. Use an Environmental Protection Agency-registered mosquito repellent. When you can, wear long-sleeved shirts and pants when outside —something that will get a bit easier to do as the weather turns cooler! If your autumn travel plans include an area where Zika has been found, watch for the symptoms of the virus even after you return, which include fever, rash, red eyes and joint pain, and see your health care

provider if you become ill. Whether you have symptoms or not, be sure to be diligent with actions to prevent mosquito bites for three weeks after you return so you don’t spread Zika to our local mosquitoes. Whooping cough: Pertussis, commonly known as whooping cough, continues to circulate in our community. Northern Kentucky has had more than 250 cases reported since last November. Protect your family by making sure that all members are vaccinated as recommended for their age. Most people can get vaccinated for free at the health department’s county health centers. Seasonal flu: Oct. 1 marks the beginning of flu season. Anyone age 6 months and older should get an annual flu vaccine. There are lots of choices about which vaccine to get, it’s available at many pharmacies, doctors’ offices and clinics, and most people can get it for little or no cost. Take everyday preventive actions as well to

avoid respiratory illnesses, like covering coughs and sneezes, staying away from sick people and washing your hands often. Bats and rabies: Many stray and wild animals can also be a source of rabies exposure, but in Kentucky, rabies has been identified in bats more frequently than other animals, with three positive bats found locally already this year. Avoid contact with bats and other wild animals. If you know of anyone who has been exposed to a bat, please contact the health department to help determine the rabies risk. Bat bites are very small and frequently go unnoticed. For more information on these topics and a variety of others, please visit http://www.nkyhealth.org. Whether you break out the bug spray or roll up your sleeve for a vaccination, I hope you fall into good health habits this autumn! Dr. Lynne M. Saddler is district director of health of the Northern Kentucky Health Department.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question Do you participate in or volunteer for any holiday giving programs? Which ones? How did you get involved?

“I participate in the Thanksgiving Food Drive for Thanksgiving and Angel Tree for Christmas with Crossroads church. For the TFD, my daughter and I select a box, shop for the items on the list then return the box to church on the required date. We also help with handing out the boxes as well as when people are dropping them off. For Angel Tree, we select an Angel off the tree. It has a child’s name and the item they are asking for. We shop for the child and then return the wrapped gift to church. We also help with the stickering, handing out the tags, receiving the gifts back at church, as well as delivering the gifts to the children.”

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION Would you feel safe riding in, or on the same road with, a “driverless” car? Would you consider buying one? Why or why not? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via email. Send your answers to ndaly@communitypress.com with Ch@troom in the subject line.

“I had the opportunity to volunteer at the food store downtown. The effort consists of loading up a ‘go-bag’ box with a turkey, canned foods etc ... An assembly line process works best with each volunteer responsible for putting one of the items in the box. My seeing the glow of the recipients makes for a great holiday feeling. I recommend this work and the soup kitchen or at least donating to them. Go figure!’

JIM OWENS/FOR THE ENQUIRER

Beechwood’s Jake Davis runs for a first down in the KHSAA football state semifinal game with Russellville.

Beechwood earns another shot Tigers will face Hazard for state championship Rick Broering Enquirer contributor

Beechwood’s defense continued its dominant postseason as the Tigers shut out Russellville in a Kentucky 1A state semifinals matchup, 35-0. Friday night marked the second shutout of the postseason for Beechwood. The Tigers have now won their four playoff games by a combined score of 177-13. Russellville converted only two first downs in the second half before both teams substituted their reserves into the game late in the fourth quarter. “What makes us so special is that we’re all together,” senior defensive end Dalton Everett said. “We’re not individuals just out for ourselves. We all have each others’ backs. Like Coach Rash says, it’s commitment, sacrifice, brotherhood. We just commit to everything we do and our brotherhood is over the top.” The Tigers also shut out Louisville Holy Cross in the second round, 44-0. “Tenacious and relentless would be words I use,” Beechwood coach Noel Rash said when asked how to describe his defense. “We use our speed. As fast as (Russellville) is, our team speed … I haven’t seen anybody equal it yet. That’s the offseason training paying off but also a lot of talent.” Beechwood knocked Russellville out of the playoffs last year in the semifinals, 34-

25, before losing in the state championship to Pikeville, 4228. The Tigers will get another chance at a state title next week when they travel to Bowling Green to take on Hazard. The Bulldogs beat Paintsville on Friday, 20-7. “This means so much to me … Me, my brothers, and my family,” junior Daniel Mescher said of the opportunity to play in another state finals. The first half started off slowly for both Beechwood and Russellville as they each had just one possession in the first quarter. Russellville’s offense opened the game with a timeconsuming drive that saw the Panthers move the ball inside the red zone. However, Beechwood sophomore Adam Derry penetrated the Russellville offensive line and laid a hit on quarterback Jaylyn McMurry, jarring the ball loose. After Beechwood took over at the Russellville 40 later in the quarter following a punt, two runs by James Davis and a pair of penalties on the Panthers moved the Tigers down to the 10. Senior Aiden Justice then bullied his way into the endzone from 10 yards out, receiving some help from his offensive line as he moved a pile of bodies about seven yards after initial contact. “It was one of those deals where I think if we score on that opening drive when we had the opportunity, I don’t know if we would have beat this football team because they’re tremendous, but it would have been a better ballgame,” Russellville coach John Myers said. “It just didn’t work out for us. They made a lot more plays than we did and they dominated the line of scrimmage.”

Here is a look at high school boys basketball in Kenton County: Beechwood was 15-14 last season for Erik Goetz, who returns for his fourth season at Beechwood and 10th overall. He returns five of last year’s top seven in the rotation. Junior Ben Toebbe, a 6-foot-4 forward, averaged 12 points a game and was an all-conference pick. He is a versatile scorer. Seniors Gannon Huff, Owen Alcorn, Lucas Benson and Cole Hicks gained valuable experience last year and provide a veteran core for this season. Huff and Hicks are guards and Hicks averaged three points a game, Benson and Alcorn forwards. Alcorn stands 6-6. Beechwood hosts Sayre Dec. 3 and Brossart Dec. 9. Calvary Christian was 16-15 last season for head coach Ryan Neises, who returns for his second season with the Cougars and fourth overall as a head coach. The Cougars return two starters, their top two scorers in seniors Akeem Riley and Justin Wade. Riley averaged 18.5 points per game and was the defensive player of the year in the conference. He enters the season with 948 career points. Riley hit 70 3pointers last year. Wade averaged 14 points a game and hit 38 treys. Others to watch start with senior center Steven Wells, freshman guard Mason Rusch and freshman guard Josh Moran. Rusch was all-tournament in the 37th District last season. “We are small but can shoot and share the ball well,” Neises said. “I like our ability to defend and push the ball.” Calvary hosts Covington Latin Dec. 1. Covington Latin won four games last year for returning head coach Andy Peters and were primarily senior-oriented. Latin plays at Calvary Dec. 1 and at Evangel Christian Dec. 3. Covington Catholic was 28-7 last year for returning head coach Scott Ruthsatz. The Colonels won the 35th District and were Ninth Region runner-ups. They are picked No. 1 in the region by the region’s coaches. Senior guard Cole VonHandorf, a returning all-state player who averaged 17 points a game last year, was a freshman starter on CovCath’s 2014 state champions, and he has 92 career wins in three years. “It doesn’t seem like we’ve had 92,” he said. “It seems like freshman year was so long ago and it didn’t happen. Ninety-two wins is crazy and it’s one of the best in Kentucky. I’m looking forward to adding on to it this year.” VonHandorf, who signed with Division II Fairmont State in November, is one of two seniors on the team this year. “I really need to be a leader,” he said. “We only have two seniors on the team this year. In my freshman year when we won state, we had five, which was great. We have a lot of talent so we just have to put it all together... Practice has been intense.

We’re really shaping up. It’s going to be a great season.” Junior CJ Fredrick averaged 11 points and hit 43 3-pointers. He is ranked third in the Ninth Region by the coaches and is getting a lot of college interest. Junior guard Aiden Ruthsatz averaged eight a game and junior forward A.J. Mayer nine. Mayer led the team with seven rebounds a game. The Colonels hope to get a height advantage with 6-foot-7 Nick Thelen and 7-foot-1 Jake Walter. CovCath plays at St. Henry and Louisville St. Xavier Dec. 9. Dixie Heights was 19-11 last year for veteran head coach Ken Chevalier, who returns for his 13th season with a 225-136 record. The Colonels return four starters. Senior point guard Hunter Meyer and senior center Reed Bradfield each averaged 12 points and five rebounds a game. Both are returning allconference and all-region players. Meyer is rated eighth in the Ninth Region by the coaches and Bradfield ninth. Dixie was ranked fourth as a team in the Ninth. Senior guard R.J. Schweitzer posted six points a game and junior forward Tyler Schreck five. Meyer is one of the top rebounding guards in the region. Schreck started 20 games last year and had a strong offseason in AAU. Senior guard Cameron Thornberry is the top newcomer to watch early on. He shot 42 percent from 3-point range. Overall, the Colonels are big on rebounding and defense, ranking in the top 10 in the state in defense last season. Chevalier likes the offensive balance, with several players capable of scoring in double figures. Dixie shot 38 percent from the 3-point stripe last year but has one player over 6-foot-3, so post defense is a preseason concern for the coach. “We will look to play more uptempo on offense and continue to play solid man to man defense which has been our staple for over a decade,” Chevalier said. “If we stay healthy and continue to improve the first few months of the season we hope to contend for a 34th district championship and be a tough out come regional tournament time.” Dixie hosts Walton-Verona Dec. 1. The Colonels have holiday tourneys at Simon Kenton and South Oldham. Lloyd Memorial was 12-17 for returning head coach Mike Key. He returns three starters in senior forward Sterling Hamilton, junior guard Jamal Neal and senior forward Devin McClendon. Others to watch start with junior forward Evan Molitor and senior guard Derick Cipollone. Overall, the Juggernauts have seven returners with varsity experience and are ranked eighth in the Ninth Region. Hamilton averaged 14 points and six rebounds a game last year and hit 48 3-pointers. He is ranked 10th in the Ninth Region by the coaches. McClendon averaged eight points and Neal five. McClendon hit 40 treys. “This group should have a lot

WHO HAS TIME FOR INJURIES?

of experience,” Key said. “We will have length to guard, which should help us to disrupt teams. We will have several players that we can put on the floor that can be scoring threats. This should make teams have to guard us honest and key on one or two players.” Lloyd hosts Owen County Dec. 1 and plays at Newport Central Catholic Dec. 6. Holy Cross was 23-9 last year for returning head coach Ryan Schrand. HC lost in the Ninth Region semifinals. The Indians graduated six seniors who made up the bulk of their scoring and will look to several varsity letterwinners from last year to step up their roles. HC was ranked seventh in the Ninth Region by the coaches. HC hosts Walton-Verona Dec. 3. Scott was 13-17 last year and has a new head coach in Steve Fromeyer. He inherits a team that is picked to finish second in the 10th Region by that region’s coaches. He has one of the area’s top players in senior guard Jake Ohmer, who averaged 26 points and five rebounds a contest last season. He made 61 3-pointers and hit 85 percent from the foul line in nine attempts per game. Ohmer already has the school’s career and single-game scoring records. He is ranked first by coaches in the 10th Region and second in all of Northern Kentucky. “Jake Ohmer has the ability to score the ball at any point in the game, but his true asset is his competitiveness,” Fromeyer said. Other key returners include senior Vincent Dumlao (9 ppg.), senior Timmy Jolley (4 ppg.), junior Nelson Perrin (5 ppg.) and sophomore Chad Ohmer (6 ppg.). “While lacking true size, our team is loaded with speed and overall quickness,” Fromeyer said. “The outlook will be determined on our ability to defend in the halfcourt. Our lack in size creates mismatches and may hinder rebounding. However our transition speed will dictate total points.” St. Henry was 14-17 last year for head coach David Faust, the dean of area coaches with a 361314 record in his 24th season. He returns two starters in senior guard Stephen Maley and senior forward Brady Meiman. Maley is the top returning scorer from last year, averaging 11 points a game and hitting 35 3pointers. Others with varsity experience include senior guard Logan Beechem, junior guard Elliott Berling and junior forward Peyton Machcinski. Berling averaged five points a game. The top newcomer to watch early on is junior forward Michael Schaefer. “We will be very small this year,” Faust said. “We will have to be fundamentally sound on defense and limit our turnovers to have success.” St. Henry hosts Conner Dec. 1 and Covington Catholic Dec. 6. Villa Madonna was 12-17 for returning head coach Tom Dilts. Follow James Weber on Twitter @JWeberSports

Holy Cross learns ‘to fight,’ loses close one in semis James Weber jweber@communitypress.com

DANVILLE, Ky. – In a highly touted battle of two teams with explosive playmakers, the Danville Admirals’ stars anchored their way past Holy Cross Nov. 25 in a thriller. Danville senior quarterback Zack Dampier threw three long touchdown passes to junior David Walker, two in the third quarter, to lead Danville past Holy Cross 42-35 in a Class 2A state semifinal at Admiral Stadium. Danville (12-2), who has 10 titles but none since 2003, advanced to the final for the first time since 2006. HC finished 10-4. “Somewhere during the season our team learned how to fight,” said Holy Cross head coach Bruce Kozerski. “We got behind and fought back, took the lead, got behind, fought almost all the way back and got a shot.” Holy Cross’ last chance ended with 1:37 to go, when the Indians had third and 1 at the Danville 47 but were stuffed at the line twice in a row. Holy Cross was in its first trip to the semis since winning the 2A state championship in 2011. Danville scored three unanswered touchdowns in the third

quarter. Two of them were on long touchdown passes from Dampier to Walker, who ran past the Holy Cross defense On the first play of the fourth, Danville botched the snap and the Indians recovered. Senior Xavier Abernathy scored from a yard out, and it was 4228. With six minutes to go, HC senior Derrick Barnes, playing in the Wildcat, connected with Jaylin Williams for a 58yard pass to the Danville 5. After Danville went backwards on its drive and punted, HC took over at its 44 with three minutes to play for its final drive After both teams went empty on their first possession, the Admirals struck first when Dampier threw a long pass to Walker, who ran past the defense for a 52-yard TD. The Indians came back on a 65-yard drive. Barnes scored on the first play of the second quarter and the PAT tied it at 7. Follow James Weber on Twitter @JWeberSports

Finke Family Endowed Scholarship established PARK HILLS – Covington Catholic High School has announced the establishment of the Finke Family Endowed Scholarship. Sue and Mike Finke, together with their sons and their wives – Michael and Kristin and Matthew and Kerri – have established this new fund. Mike Finke was a CCH graduate in the class of 1979, Michael Jr., class of 1998 and Matthew, class of 2002. Sue Finke served as Covington Catholic Director of Advancement and Bright Minds, Bright Future Capital Campaign Director for more than 10 years. As part of her role, Sue championed the need for endowed scholarships at CCH, which provide an enduring source of funding for the high school’s tuition assistance program. In 2006, Denny Doyle

challenged Sue Finke to establish eight scholarships, offering to match what was raised through the Dennis M. and Lois A. Doyle Family Foundation. This effort, along with the matching gift, resulted in nearly $400,000 in endowed scholarships. It was very fitting that the Doyle Foundation’s last matching gift was to the Finke Family Scholarship. With the Doyle Family Foundation match, the Finke Family Scholarship Fund will exceed $60,000. The Finke family, along with Doyle, were honored at the All School Liturgy in September. Matthew Finke spoke to the student body, faculty and staff about the scholarship and encouraged students to thank their parents for their Catholic education, thank their teachers, and to aspire to

Families that eat together at home not only eat better but they eat more vegetables, enjoy more family Kathy R. conByrnes versations, EXTENDING KNOWLEDGE and reduce the risk of substance abuse in teens. To encourage more family meals, the National Extension Association of Family & Consumer Sciences (NEAFCS) is joining forces with the American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences in promoting “Dining In for Healthy Families.” Get ideas at aafcs.org/ fcsday and sign a pledge to eat together on Dec. 3. You will find more ideas on Twitter - #FCSday and #diningin4fam. The Family and Consumer Sciences profession had its beginning as home economics in 1899 when Ellen Swallow Richards, the first female graduate and faculty member of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, blazed a path using scientific knowledge to address the plight of families with regards to water quality, food safety, and the safety of home environments. Today, Extension Family and Consumer Sciences, a part of the Cooperative Extension system, continues to focus on the family and the needs of family members across the lifespan. NEAFCS professionals promote families eating and preparing meals together as a way to improve personal nutrition, reduce the risk of chronic disease, and

build strong, resilient families. For more information on NEAFCS programs and initiatives, visit www.neafcs.org. Below is a great onedish meal from our “Plate it Up! Kentucky Proud series. For more recipes, visit our site at: http://plateitup.ca.uky .edu

Thomas More adds high demand major A new major – management information systems – is part of Thomas More College’s efforts to continue providing students with majors that are in high demand. In order for students to be successful in the job market, they must have the latest knowledge and tools which is what management information sys-

tems is designed to provide, according to a press release. As a blend of management and technology, management information systems brings the best of both worlds together so graduates will be equipped with the knowledge needed to succeed in a wide variety of jobs.

According to Yousif Mustafa, PhD, the department chair of information systems, “Here at Thomas More College we help cultivate students’ skills so they can become innovators, leaders, problem solvers, and project managers that the world needs.” Students in the MIS program will be able to

master technology such as database, computer simulation, and web programming side by side with management science skills such as data mining and business intelligence, in order to solve problems. The knowledge students will gain in this program will be applicable to any business of any size.

NOTICE Please take notice that Duke Energy Kentucky, Inc. has applied to the Kentucky Public Service Commission for approval to revise its Demand Side Management (DSM) rate for gas service and electric service for residential and commercial customers. Duke Energy Kentucky’s current monthly DSM rate for residential gas customers is $0.044741 per hundred cubic feet and for non-residential gas customers is $0.000000 per hundred cubic feet. Duke Energy Kentucky’s current monthly DSM rate for residential electric customers is $0.007128 per kilowatt-hour and for non-residential customers is $0.002758 per kilowatt-hour for distribution service and $0.000049 per kilowatt-hour for transmission service. Duke Energy Kentucky seeks approval to revise these rates as follows: Duke Energy Kentucky’s monthly DSM rate for residential gas customers would decrease to ($0.013241) per hundred cubic feet and for nonresidential gas customers would remain at $0.000000 per hundred cubic feet. Duke Energy Kentucky’s monthly DSM rate for residential electric customers would increase to $0.007967 per kilowatt-hour and for non-residential customers would decrease to $0.002576 per kilowatt-hour for distribution service and would increase to $0.000183 per kilowatt-hour for transmission service. The rate contained in this notice is the rate proposed by Duke Energy Kentucky. However, the Public Service Commission may order a rate to be charged that differs from this proposed rate. Such action may result in a rate for consumers other than the rate in this notice. The foregoing rates reflect a proposed increase in electric revenues of approximately $0.80 million or 0.25% over current total electric revenues and a decrease in gas revenues of approximately $3.4 million or (4.00%) of current total gas revenues. A typical residential gas customer using 70 ccf in a month will see a decrease of $4.06 or (5.3%). A typical residential electric customer using 1000 kWh in a month will see an increase of $0.84 or 0.95%. A typical non-residential electric customer using 40 kilowatts and 14,000 kWh will see a decrease of $2.55 or (0.22%). A non-residential customer served at transmission voltage using 10,000 kilowatts and 4,000,000 kWh will see an increase of $536.00 or 0.22%. Non-residential gas customers will see no change in their bills from this application. Any corporation, association, body politic or person may by motion within thirty (30) days after publication or mailing of notice of the proposed rate changes, submit a written request to intervene to the Public Service Commission, 211 Sower Boulevard, P.O. Box 615, Frankfort, Kentucky 40602, and shall set forth the grounds for the request including the status and interest of the party. The intervention may be granted beyond the thirty (30) day period for good cause shown. Written comments regarding the proposed rate may be submitted to the Public Service Commission by mail or through the Public Service Commission’s website. A copy of this application filed with the Public Service Commission is available for public inspection at Duke Energy Kentucky’s office at 4580 Olympic Boulevard, Erlanger, Kentucky 41018 and on its website at http://www.duke-energy.com. This filing and any other related documents can be found on the Public Service Commission’s website at http://psc.ky.gov.
