VILLA HILLS — Like many Kentuckians Villa Hills resident Dale Due bleeds blue for the University of Kentucky Wildcats. She’s put her pride on paper by penning a children’s book “You are a Kentucky Wildcat” in honor of her three grandchildren. Due’s family has a history with UK. She and her husband attended the school. So did her two daughters and two son-in-laws. “Now I have three grandchildren and I wanted to give them something from me about something I love,” she said. “... We have so much time spent at the University of Kentucky and I thought why not do a book on UK?” The book reminds fans to be proud of the Big Blue and pays homage to her grandchildren. Illustrated by Corben Geis, she asked the artist to include like-

children’s books and graduated with an elementary education major from UK. “I’ve always talked about writing a book, from when I was in college until now and just have never done it,” Due said. “It wasn’t until I actually had my grandchildren, three years ago, that I tried and put something together.” UK fans are more excited than usual this year, due to a national championship win in basketball, which is why it’s been a good year to put the book out, Due said. “I know it’s a limited audience,” she said. “But it’s a very dedicated audience.” “You Are a Kentucky Wildcat” is available at www.amazon.com, from Due directly and JosephBeth Booksellers locations in Lexington and Crestview Hills. Copies are $15. Visit www.nky.com/VillaHills for more community news.

Facebook Santa helping needy By Libby Cunningham Lcunningham@nky.com

NEWPORT — Brian Delaney has little room to move inside his green and brown minivan. Plastic containers, with labels describing clothing for different age groups, crowd the interior of his vehicle as he waits for it to be emptied in a Newport parking lot. In eight days the minivan has traveled 1,200 miles, sometimes full to the brim, picking up or delivering donations. In only eight days the Erlanger resident has reached out to more than 150 needy families by inviting them to post in the Facebook group “Helping needy families for Christmas.” “They go on to our Facebook and they’ll write ‘in search of’

what they’re looking for their children,” Delaney said. He investigates the posters’ profiles to make sure they’re not scammers. After that help pours in from his resources, including his own closet and very full shed. With the help of volunteers like Elizabeth Haines and Brandy Mort, Delaney then figures out a way to get presents to people. He sets up meeting times and places to distribute items, careful to suggest recipients park away from stores, since he doesn’t want to cause any trouble, he said. Cynthia Scales, of Alexandria, approaches Delaney’s car for a container with clothing. See SANTA, Page A2

Santa checks lists in Erlanger Community Recorder ERLANGER — Santa made a

stop at the Erlanger branch of the Kenton County Public Library on Dec. 2 to meet with kids and discuss Christmas

lists. Steve Trauger, recreation coordinator with Kenton County Parks, had a special delivery for Santa at the program. He showed up with a sack full of letters local kids had written

with Christmas wishes. Kenton County Parks collected those letters, at Kenton County Public Library locations, promising kids that if they sent one to Santa they’d get one back.

Ryle will discuss the mysterious and abstract nature of the dark matter that physicists and astronomers propose exists deep within the universe. Following the lecture, around 8 p.m., participants will proceed to The Bank of Kentucky Observatory, located behind the lake at the rear of campus, for a telescope viewing of the night sky, weather-permitting.

Kenton’s police cars fuel savings By Amy Scalf ascalf@nky.com

INDEPENDENCE — The Kenton County Police Department’s six new cars are expected to send county budget savings into overdrive. According to Kenton County Judge-executive Steve Arlinghaus, the six 2013 Dodge Charger police cruisers, purchased at a cost of $21,000 each, will replace SUVs purchased between 2002 and 2006, exchanging vehicles that got

9 miles per gallon with more cost-effective models that get up to 19.9 miles per gallon, saving a total of $21,000 per year in fuel costs. “We’re doubling our gas mileage, essentially,” said Arlinghaus. “It equals quite a bit of fuel savings.” Fleet Maintenance Director Roger Wells said the cruisers will be used by county police sergeants who don’t typically drive from call to call, but the gas mileage difference will certainly add up.

“We expect to save $21,000 per year in fuel costs over previous years, so at the end of six years the cars will pay themselves off,” Wells said. Wells said the sergeants, who serve as shift supervisors, drive 100,000 miles per year, and he budgets fuel costs at $3.50 per gallon of fuel. He said the police department’s annual fuel budget is $108,000, so the new cars are expected to save almost 20 percent of the total budget. Kenton County Police

Chief Brian Capps expects even more savings. “We’ll also see a drop in maintenance costs. Some of the SUVs have really given us problems, especially with transmissions. It’s really eating up our maintenance budget. If we replace just one with a new vehicle, it costs money up front, but then costs go down,” he said. “We’re replacing 6- to 10-year-old vehicles. Any time you can replace an older vehicle with a brand-new model, it’s good.”

Santa

helping Grace Maute of Fort Mitchell in a different way. She’s young, pregnant and staying at the Madonna House of Northern Kentucky until her child is born. The Madonna House requires her to volunteer locally, so she decided to help Delaney. “I had stuff to give, so I donated all of my daughter’s old clothes,” Maute said. Delaney’s Facebook group had 378 members as of Dec. 7, most looking for some relief this holiday season. Several emails to the Recorder, such as one from

Megan Hill of Southgate, called him the “Santa Claus of Northern Kentucky.” He’s helping residents because he was in their shoes last year. “The reason why I started this is because last year I needed help,” said Delaney, who is disabled. “We fell flat on our face.” The memories cause him to tear up while waiting for more people to come and pick up their presents. “The thing is that all good luck comes in tenfold,” he says, voice quivering. “Five people helped us last year. Our goal was 50 people. Now it’s up to 158.”

UNION — Soldiers deployed overseas will have some new reading materials this holiday season thanks in part to a new nonprofit founded by a local lawyer and author. Pride and Pages, the brainchild of Rick Robinson, had its kickoff Nov. 29, when the group partnered with the city of Union’s Adopt-a-Unit program to send 130 books donated by local authors overseas to the city’s adopted military unit, 101st Airborne Division, 1/ 32 CAV. Volunteers gathered at the Union Community Building to prepare a holiday shipment to the deployed troops where the books – and other goodies – were wrapped. The donated books come from a number of local authors including Judge Anthony Frohlich, Justice Donald Wintersheimer, Don McNay, Rob Hudson, Callie Clare and more. According to Robinson, that’s about $2,600 worth of books. Pride and Pages is also working to pay for shipping of the boxes. Robinson, of Fort Mitchell, said when he published his first book, he

began carrying extra copies around with him. While flying somewhere, Robinson would notice a military group nearby, so he shared a copy of his book. They were “so blown away” that someone would give them a book they had penned, he said. In addition to the books for the soldiers, books will be sent to their children with messages written from their fathers before being deployed. “Every kid will get a book from daddy this Christmas,” Robinson said. “I think it’s a great addition,” Franxman said.

with the Boy Scouts. Alexander Mize, a senior at Covington Catholic High School and Villa Hills resident, wanted to use the service project required to achieve the highest honor in Boy Scouting to benefit his hometown. “I chose this project because upon talking with members of the Civic Club community, it seemed like this was something they really needed,” Mize said. “It’s not only given kids something to do when they’re at the Civic Club with the parents, but it even gives them something to do even if they just want to have fun.” Five hundred service hours went into the pro-

ject, and Mize said about 50 volunteers helped with the assembly of the playset, which features swings, seesaws and a slide. Money was raised for the project through fundraisers such as spaghetti dinners, Mize said. Planning for the playground, which started construction on April 14 came with help from Villa Hills residents Ernie Brown, Jacke Goetz, Ron King and Tracey Ulrich. The Civic Club, Garden Club and Ladies Auxiliary of Villa Hills also played roles in the completion, Mize said. “Since the beginning the Villa Hills Civic Club Community has been an in-

tegral part to getting this project done,” Mize said. “It’s their project, the entire city of Villa Hills’ project, that I helped bring to fruition.” Being an Eagle Scout is not the only way Mize gives back to his community. The Kentucky Governor’s Scholar also tutors and reads to the elderly at Madonna Manor. He says he hopes to attend college next fall to study electrical engineering. “I hope to be able to get involved in Boy Scouting in some way when I get to college,” Mize said.

Swimmers make splash in Kenton County

By James Weber jweber@nky.com

Swimming season is under way in Kenton County. Here is a look at local teams:

Covington Catholic

The Colonels have one more year of Max Williamson to celebrate, and he and the team hope that they get to rejoice on a grand scale at the state meet in February. Cov Cath has its sights set on dethroning powerhouse St. Xavier for the team championship, which is always tricky since St. X’s depth allows it to win the title by large margins, though Cov Cath has threatened at times. “As always, the elusive state championship is our goal,” said head coach Richard Dickmann. “Over the past five years we have seen our team numbers increase and our depth is the best that it has been in years. We’re still a very young team, the future is bright and the combination of a strong roster of both swimmers and divers will give us a very good chance to achieve our goal.” The chase starts with Williamson, who signed to swim for

Stanford last month. He broke the state record in the 200 individual medley and 500 freestyle in the process of winning both championships. He also led the 400 free relay to a state title and the 200 medley relay to second place. Williamson also gained serious experience at the 2012 Olympic Trials. Chase Vennefron returns from both relays, and Robbie Newman from the medley relay. Other returning starters include Louie Hunt, Todd Sheets, Zach Smith, Mikey Summe, Nate Gradel and Zach Stegman. A strong freshman class could help, led by Jake Lentsch, Brendan Meyer, Josh Smith, Evan Brungs and Bryce Day. Dickmann said several records could be threatened this year if the team swims up to its potential.

Covington Latin

Stephanie Tewes returns for her second year as head coach. Returning starters are Leona Nease, Michelle Bitter, Krista Borchers and Paul Wintring. Top newcomers include Grace Thomas and Jack Johnson. The Trojans qualified a girls 400 freestyle relay to the state

Notre Dame

The Pandas said goodbye to superstar Caitlyn Forman, who was the MVP of the state meet after leaving with a championship and record in the 100 backstroke. She helped the Pandas finish third in the team standings and is now swimming at Auburn University. Eighth-year head coach and former Pandas standout Emily (Maier) Knoll always has reinforcements at NDA, led by senior swimmers MacKenzie Margroum and Julia Johnson. Mar-

groum signed with the Navy this fall. She finished third in the 50 freestyle and second in the 100 free. Johnson, Margroum and Olivia Kuykendall return from a state runner-up medley relay. Sophomore Lilly Morgan finished 12th in the individual medley and swam at state in relays. Sophomore diver Karly Crail finished 13th at state. Morgan was on the state runner-up 400 free relay with Johnson and Margroum. Top newcomers are Kat Akin, Katie Summe, Madeleine Vonderhaar and Olivia Hagen. NDA has won 14 consecutive conference and regional titles and Knoll said her team has the depth to make it 15. The preseason roster lists 66 Pandas. NDA will challenge itself early in the season against Cincinnati powers St. Ursula, Sycamore, Lakota East and Lakota West. NDA has a meet in Louisville Dec. 14 and will compete in the Scott Eagle Classic Jan. 5.

See PREPS, Page A7

The old saying claims youth is wasted on the young. Not so at Beechwood High School, where the girls basketball team is in the midst of a sweeping youth movement. Freshman Macy Stuempel leads the Tigers at 16 points per game through Beechwood’s first four, posting a 2-2 record with wins over Calvary and Covington Latin. Hot on her heels for the scoring lead is eighth-grade student Ally Johnson at 13 ppg. Coming off a 19-win season in 2011-12, the Tigers now have squad with no seniors, so even the veterans are young. Still, junior post players Raquel Barry and Elizabeth Giesky both have been part of the varsity program since seventh grade. “They are pretty much like having second-year seniors on the floor,” said head coach Alison McCarthy said. “They’ve been around so long, been through the ups and downs, that their leadership is invaluable.” But it’s the young players driving the bus. Stuempel and Johnson share point- and shooting-guard duties, leading a three-guard offense dependent on dribble drives and kick-out passes. “It can be scary,” McCarthy said of turning over a team to players three or four years away from senior prom. “There’s going to be great times and times when they really struggle. I’ve told them they don’t have to be great all the time, but they do need to be consistent. Consistent on defense, handling the ball, effort. “A lot of times younger players want to be told exactly where to go and what to do. That’s not our offense. I’m a big fan of teaching the kids to play the game, and part of that is them learning to create shots on their own, whether it’s on a drive or kicking it out if the drive gets stopped. We play inside out and we have some good shooters.” For her part, Johnson said not even being in high school and competing with and against older players isn’t as scary as giving what turned out to be her first newspaper interview. “I’ve played so many games – I play year ‘round – that I don’t really get too nervous,” she said. “I get really excited when I get to play basketball.” Johnson said her dad – former Transylvania University player Keith Johnson – got her interested in the game she began playing in first grade. By the time she was in fifth grade she moved up to the middle school squad with seventh- and eighth-graders. She played on the Beechwood freshman and JV teams last season as a seventh-grader. Johnson cites Vanderbilt University’s Gabby Smith, whose mother coached one of her AAU teams, as her favorite player. Johnson has worked out with Smith and even made a trip to the University of Dayton to see the Flyers host an early-season game against Vandy. McCarthy likes the look of her young team. “We won 19 games last year and this year we’re back in kind of a rebuilding mode, but we’re going to be competitive,” McCarthy said. “That’s kind of the fate of a small school from year to year. You work with what you have and you teach the game.”

Work ethic pays off for Eagles girls By Adam Turer

presspreps@gmail.com

It took just two weeks for the Scott High School girls basketball team to equal its win total of a year ago. The Eagles are off to a 4-1 start through Dec. 8, after going just 4-28 in 20112012. After a disappointing season, changes in the offensive and defensive philosophy were made. One thing the Eagles could count on heading into this year was getting quality work ethic from every player on the team. “We are off to a good start this year. Kids are playing hard and meeting our expectations,” said

Spreading the floor and pushing the ball have been the emphasis, rather than slowing down the game in half court sets. “We’re working on a more open post offense as we are now very guardoriented,” said Klette. “We’re also working on getting out in transition.” Madison Meyer had adjusted to playing in the post this year. Holly Kallmeyer has provided a spark off the bench. Landon Brefeld leads the defense with her aggressive play. One of the keys to the Eagles’ early-season success has been Scott’s inyour-face defensive intensity. “We are still working on

head coach Rhonda Klette said. The biggest adjustment entering this year was an emphasis on playing more relentless defense. Scott held its first two opponents under 30 points. In their four wins, the Eagles have allowed an average of 39 points per game. “Defense has been our main focus,” said Klette. “We are playing a more aggressive style of play than we have in the past.” Sophomore Jenna Trimpe and seventh-grader Allyson Niece have been the team’s top scorers. The offense is also adjusting to a different style of play based on the current roster’s makeup.

getting ball pressure and rotations down,” said Klette. “We’re playing a more aggressive defense.” The Eagles have five more games against local competition before heading to Atlanta to play in the Whitefield Academy Christmas Classic. While only one more win will surpass last year’s total, the Eagles will not be satisfied with just five wins. With a renewed focus on guard play and defensive pressure, Scott is on its way to reaching double digit wins for the first time since the 2009-2010 team won 21 games. Scott plays at Calvary Christian on Dec. 13.

A solution to the bridge ‘crisis’ Why are local business leaders spending $2 million to hire a public relations firm to “persuade” Northern Kentuckians to raise taxes on themselves? Do they think we’re that stupid? Unfortunately, they know we’re that stupid. Our business leaders are going about this Brent Spence Bridge “crisis” all wrong. The solution is easier than anyone thinks. I recommend the Midwest create a Brent Spence Lottery (B.S.L.). The recent Powerball insanity is the inspiration behind this brilliant concept. The B.S.L. should be almost impossible to win. Impossible odds don’t seem to deter gullible people. I recommend the B.S.L. use a combination of numbers,

letters and animals to make the odds as unobtainable as Northern Kentuckians getting cancer from drinking our water. Now Tom Wurtz that is as close COMMUNITY to impossible as RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST you can get. Each week there will be no winners and that will make the following week’s tax refund scam even larger, causing more people to throw money into the government coffers. Soon the B.S.L. will be in the $500 million range. Once that happens, the bridge will be funded in no time. The good news is

only gullible people who play the B.S. Lottery will waste their money. I’m a little bit surprised that our talented local business leaders didn’t think of it first. There’s no need for tolls, therefore the federal government can continue to waste almost $4 trillion per year. For deep-thinkers, that amount equals the cost of building 1,600 Brent Spence Bridges per year. For those who can’t handle big numbers, that amount equals $11 billion per day or four Brent Spence Bridges per day. Everyone wins. Incompetent and corrupt federal and state politicians can continue to waste money and do whatever it is they do all day. We will not need public-private partnerships where

Stopping the drug epidemic It has been a little more than three months since legislation I sponsored to crack down on illegal prescription drug abuse became law, but for many Kentuckians, it hopefully feels like a lifetime. I say that because we are starting to see some true progress when it comes to kicking pill pushers out of the state for good and putting the brakes on an epidemic that claims the lives of at least three citizens a day across the commonwealth. As Governor Beshear noted recently, 10 pain clinics have closed since the law took effect in July, prescriptions for some of the most abused drugs are dropping and numerous investigations are closing in on rogue doctors who prescribe recklessly. And that’s just the start. If there is one thing I have learned during my time in the Capitol, however, it is that this issue is always evolving. When I was attorney general, for example, Internet pharmacies were prominent, so much so that those driving the trucks for overnight package companies would actually be followed by addicts who could not wait an extra minute for a shipment. When we stopped that method, drug seekers traveled to states like Florida, where oversight was lax. As those states began put-

ting a stop to that trend, we saw drug diversion spike here in our own backyard. These pill mills were Greg Stumbo often easy to spot, too; you COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST just had to COLUMNIST look for a line of “patients” trailing outside a doctor’s door. House Bill 1, which the General Assembly approved in April, puts a stop to that practice. It takes full advantage of what has become one of the nation’s top prescription drug monitoring programs – known by its acronym, KASPER – and it gives law enforcement and medical licensing boards alike the information and oversight they need to find pill-pushing doctors and those who try to game the system to feed their addiction. To be successful, this effort is requiring the help of all doctors who prescribe medicine, because they are the gatekeepers. No program can be truly effective without having everyone on the same page. This legislation does not hinder proper medical care. Doctors still have the same authority to do what they think is medically necessary, and those who claim otherwise are

not being truthful. We just want to make sure that they monitor their patients’ prescription drug history as all reputable doctors should. While the legislation’s concept is clear, there has been some confusion in the wake of proposed regulations that, it is crucial to note, were written by physicians and not legislators. These licensing boards wanted the authority to fill in the fine print to carry the law out, and we in the legislature agreed because they are the experts. It is ironic, then, that most of the complaints I have heard from physicians are not about the law so much as the rules their own licensing board wrote. Fortunately, regulations are much easier to change than law, and the licensing board is currently rewriting the rules. At the same time, there is a legislative oversight committee that is studying what improvements the General Assembly may need to make in 2013. Still, after seeing what we have been able to accomplish in a short period of time, I’m more convinced than ever that we are on the right path when it comes to putting a true dent in the prescription drug epidemic. Those who believe otherwise are, to be blunt, just wrong. Rep. Greg Stumbo is Kentucky House speaker.

Bilingual residents needed While our region has a significant number of Fortune 500 companies that do business internationally, we have one of the lowest percentages of foreign-born residents and residents who speak a foreign language. When Chiquita Brands cited the lack of a bilingual workforce able to work easily with Chiquita’s substantial operations in Latin America, we realized we needed to get busy and take advantage of the resources that are already here. The Hispanic Chamber Cincinnati USA recently announced The Cincy Bilingual Advantage, a new economic impact project designed to help companies and civic organizations compete in the global marketplace by using a webbased system to access bilingual resources. The intent is

for local companies and organizations to be able to access bilingual local talent to support business, Alfonso academic or Cornejo humanitarian efforts.

politicians and businesses climb into bed together and procreate something on taxpayers that resembles Rosemary’s baby. Our business leaders will save $2 million dollars so they will not have to pass that loss on to consumers like us. The gullible idiots that play the lottery can feel good about themselves and dream about being wealthy by doing nothing more than standing in line. I know it sounds crazy enough to work. Now that I think about the Brent Spence Lottery, it’s a ridiculous idea. Do you remember back in 1989 when the Kentucky Lottery began and helped transform our children into rocket scientists? I don’t either! Instead of our children becoming rock-

ets, they became rocks. The Kentucky Lottery is just a taxtaking scam that has convinced useful idiots to voluntarily give tax-takers more money to waste. Here’s a better idea. I recommend legislation called You Neglected It, You Pay For It Legislative Act of 2013. This bill will confiscate federal pensions from all members of Congress since 1970. All their pension funds will be transferred to the Brent Spence Project. Only after the bridge is rebuilt and paid off, will pensions be restored to these tax-takers. I like this idea better than tolls. Tom Wurtz is president of Tom Wurtz Consulting and a resident of Fort Mitchell.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Real-world dynamics of rape are appalling

The theological purity of “Does rape justify abortion?” by Fred H. Summe is appealing as ideologies have a way of sounding. The real-world dynamics of rape are appalling. The woman has been victimized once. Do not let Mr. Summe or anyone else victimize her again with the certitude that they know what is best for her. It is for a woman pregnant from rape to decide that. Mr. Summe would further the trauma if he had his way to make abortion illegal even in cases of rape and incest. Nancy Rowles Covington

New program helps families in crisis This summer a new program was introduced in Kenton County that provides families tools to address problems at home. Family Day Camp was launched initially for kids charged with truancy, running away and beyond control behavior, and involves the parents and guardians as well. After years of discussion, Thomas Cox and I have partnered to establish a weekend gathering that brings families together to work on issues of bonding, boundaries, communication and problem solving. The camp meets about once a month and at the present time most referrals originate from the state of Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services. Non-court referred families are also welcome to attend any Family Day Camp to focus on home issues. In addition, camps can be held at various locations and are not limited to families in Kenton County. Thomas has conducted family mediation for nearly 20 years and has developed a program that teaches families a problem-solving model they can begin utilizing the day of their first camp. The program is not intended to take the place of long-term counseling needs, but rather as a quick intervention than can help address some challenges

A ribbon cutting marked the beginning of holiday celebrations in Villa Hills, with members of the Villa Hills Garden Club presenting the Villa Hills Commemorative Garden to around 300 residents on Dec. 8. Carolers from River Ridge Elementary and Villa Madonna Academy sang and Santa visited to discuss Christmas wishes with children. Santa also stopped in at a Dec. 1celebration in Crescent Springs.

BEST FRIENDS FOREVER

Friends give ‘50 years of free therapy’ Members of the 1959 graduating class of St. Henry High School in Erlanger have been together since the first grade. And the group of best friends have one or two adoptees who fit right in as if they’d been there from day one. For more than 50 years they have gathered at one another’s homes and on a couple of occasions a few of them have traveled to Bloomington, Ind., and Pittsburgh to meet with out-of-town members. But most live in this area in Boone and Kenton counties.

When asked what kind of cards they play at this “club,” members say they don’t play cards. They deal with more important issues – themselves – and like to think they’ve given each other 50 years of free therapy. Through the years they have supported, rejoiced and consoled one another in many aspects of their live. They’ve celebrated children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren at weddings, engagements, births, illnesses, deaths and most recently a 50th wedding anniversary.

Friends got together at Steve and Kathy Book’s 50th anniversary party. From left: Dian Ankenbauer Froelicher, Jacque Terlau Kopser, Donna Pauly Good, Judy Thompson Powers, Margaret Moloney Robbins, Kathy Eibes Brockman, Kathy Bowman Book, Joyce Tewes O’Hara, Jo Ann Schaeffer Bridley, Mary Kay Moloney Whalen, Betty Rassenfoss Koenig and Judy Terlau Wilson.

More holiday recipes: Ruth Lyons’ coffecake It’s interesting how your requests coincide with current events. The Ruth Lyons Children’s Fund is in full swing and I’ve had several requests for her famous Rita coffeeHeikenfeld cake. It’s a special RITA’S KITCHEN way to honor this woman who has had such a positive impact on us.

I have a few versions of this recipe, but this is the one that’s supposed to be Ruth’s original. I’ve made this twice now, once following the recipe below and once making it with 21⁄4 cups flour, 11⁄2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1⁄4 teaspoon salt, 1⁄2 cup oil, 2 teaspoons vanilla and no vinegar. (The vinegar is used to “sour” the milk, making it more like buttermilk). I made a thin icing to glaze it, as well. The difference between the two was slight. This is a straightforward, simple coffeecake. If you want a richer tasting one with a thicker cinnamon topping, I have my holiday overnight coffeecake on my blog. 1 cup sugar 1 cup brown sugar, dark preferred 21⁄2 cups flour 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon nutmeg 1 teaspoon salt 3 ⁄4 cup oil 1 teaspoon vinegar 1 cup milk 1 egg, lightly beaten 1 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the first six ingredients. Add oil and stir until crumbly. Reserve and set aside 3⁄4 cup for topping. Add vinegar to milk, then add to sugar mixture. Add egg and

soda; mix well. Pour into a sprayed 13-inch by 9-inch pan. Sprinkle with topping. Bake 30 minutes.

Check out my blog for the starter and a good recipe.

My best clone of Williams-Sonoma peppermint bark You didn’t think I could let the holidays go by without sharing yet another version, did you? Some of you have had trouble in the past with the bark shattering/separating. That happens somewhat even with the purchased bark, but this recipe keeps that to a minimum, if at all. Out of all the recipes I’ve made for bark throughout the years, using different melting methods and chocolates, I’ve come back to my classic way of teaching students. By the way, check out the photo. Can you tell which is mine and which is WilliamsSonoma’s? I used Kroger real semi-sweet and white chocolate morsels. 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips, divided into 11⁄4 cup and 3⁄4 cup

Line a cookie sheet with one piece of foil, about 10 inches by 12 inches. Or do the same in a 13-inch by 9-inch pan. Put 11⁄4 cups semi-sweet chocolate in heat proof bowl. Set over a saucepan that has 1 inch of steaming water, making sure bowl does not touch wa-

ter. (This is a makeshift double boiler). Heat should be turned to low. Stir until chocolate is just about melted, then remove bowl from pan and stir 3⁄4cup more in rest of semisweet chocolate, a bit at a time, until all is melted. If necessary, put the bowl back on the pan to help melt. If there’s any moisture on the bottom of the bowl, wipe it dry. Stir in 1 teaspoon of the extract and pour onto foil, spreading in even layer. Tap pan on counter to remove any air bubbles. Let sit at room temperature until just about set, anywhere from 15-20

minutes. When you press your finger into the chocolate a very slight indentation will remain. Put 21⁄4 cups white chocolate in clean bowl and repeat process for melting, stirring in remaining 1⁄2 cup chips after removing bowl from pan. Stir in 1⁄2 teaspoon extract. Pour over chocolate layer and spread. Sprinkle with candy. If necessary, gently press into chocolate. Let set at room temperature until completely firm. Peel bark off foil and break into pieces. Store, covered, at room temperature up to a month or so. If it’s extremely warm in the house, store, covered, in refrigerator and bring to room temperature before eating.

Salvation Army to help 2,200

The Salvation Army Community Centers in Northern Kentucky have a growing, unmet need for toys for local children. The Salvation Army in Northern Kentucky expects to serve more than 2,200 children with some form of Christmas assistance. “It’s an important part of what we do as an organization to provide Christmas presents for these children,” said Capt. Heather Holt, pastor at The Salvation Army in Covington “Currently, our need is greater than the number of toys and gifts we’ve been able to collect, so we’re hoping we can get the word out and people will come forward to help out.” Drop off toy donations at either the Covington or Newport Salvation Army facility (1806 Scott Blvd. in Covington or 340 W. 10th St. in Newport). The deadline for all toy contributions is Dec. 17.

Senior Services of Northern Kentucky has announced that social service case aide Dan Baker of Burlington, formerly of Edgewood, is the winner of the Outstanding Direct Service Provider award for his dedication in serving senior citizens in the community.

Gravely’s knowledge and experience as a Civil War re-enactor transports the story of Civil War soldiers to the present. As a young man himself, Gravely brings with him new insight about the items soldiers carried and how soldiers dealt with

life on the battlefront. Families stopping in to visit with Gravely will enjoy seeing and touching real artifacts and reproductions to gain a sense of understanding about this war that divided so many families, communities, states and the nation. This living history demonstration is in conjunction with the museum’s Civil War exhibit Divided We Stood. Through artifacts and text panels, this exhibit reveals how the Civil War triggered divisiveness, not only between the states but often between and within families.

IS THERE A CATCH? The qualifying vehicle must be purchased and placed into service between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2012. It must be used at least 50% for business, based on mileage, in the first year it is placed in service. So if you choose to use it for both personal and business use, the cost eligible for deduction would be the percentage used for business. WHAT’S THE URGENCY? For 2013, all indications are that the Section 179 deduction limitation will be reduced to only $25,000 and any bonus depreciation deduction will be eliminated. So the December 31, 2012, deadline is approaching quickly.
