BURLINGTON — Despite a New Year’s Eve fire that destroyed a dryer and caused smoke damage at the Boone County Animal Shelter, director Beckey Reiter says they Reiter are feeling very fortunate. “This was the best possible scenario if it had to happen,” she said. According to Reiter, a fire broke out in the shelter’s industrial clothes dryer around 5:45 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 31.

BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Guitar collection of Bad Seeds member on display FLORENCE — There’s nothing quite like a guitar. “There’s some kind of aura about them,” said John Reynolds a member of the former 1960s Northern Kentucky band The Bad Seeds. “When I got my first guitar, when I was about 14, that was the end of me. The music bug had gotten me.” Fifty years later, Reynolds, 64, has an extensive collection of guitars from the 1930s to the 1960s, some of which are worth thousands of dollars. A few of his prized possessions will be on display at the Florence Branch of the Boone County Public Library through January. The Florence resident said he is excited to share his hobby and hopes it will spark an interest for music in others. Florence branch library reference associate Ed McLaughlin was quick to organize the display. “He has been a customer for as long as I can remember and guitars are always fun.” McLaughlin said. “Mr. Reynolds is a nice guy and I have enjoyed talking with him in the past, he loves music, and I figured he cares enough to put on a good display.” McLaughlin has been planning exhibits for the library’s display case since 2005. He said he’s always open to suggestions. Residents, he said, are welcome to contact him at the library if they have an idea for the display

Reisenbeck, a full-time firefighter with the Hebron Fire Protection District, were both on duty and acted quickly to contain the fire. “We were actually very fortunate that it occurred while staff was here,” Reiter said. In a Dec. 31post on the shelter’s Facebook page, Reiter says the staff’s quick response “not only minimized damage, their action saved lives.” “How fortunate,” Reiter said. “The first firefighters I ever had on staff and both happened to be on duty at the time.” See SHELTER, Page A2

FLORENCE — Erica Almquist wants to make a difference in the world. That’s why she joined the Florence Rotary Club’s youth organization, Interact Club, when it formed last year. “Interact Club is a great opportunity for teens to get together and go out and help others,” the 16-year-old Union resident said. Since the club’s introduction, members, ages12 through18, have been volunteering throughout the community. Now, their sights are set are making an impact on children in the Dominican Republic. The group is selling copies of “The Lord Is Not Through With Me Yet,” by Kaitlyn Rawlings to raise money for a trip to the Highlands Dominican Republic youth camp. There Interact members will assist youth camp leaders and build relationships with Rahn youths from the Dominican Republic. “I’m really looking forward to working without he kids there,” Almquist said. “It’s important to do things like this because it gives us, teenagers, a chance to not think of ourselves so much. It gives you a chance to think of others who maybe aren’t as blessed as you. It’s an opportunity to help people.” The youth camp is one of several throughout the world that is supported by the Rawlings Foundation, founded by John Rawlings, who was pastor of Landmark Baptist Temple in Cincinnati. Rawlings, who died last January, is known for his contributions to the founding of the Baptist Bible Fellowship, International Baptist Network and youth camps and colleges around the world. The book Interact is selling is written by Rawling’s great-granddaughter

case. “This to me is important because I get to use it to showcase people and events that are important to people in our community,” he said. “This is a way people can share their interests with other people.” Reynolds is as interesting as his guitar collection. In the 1960s, he was the bass player of The Bad Seeds, a local band that landed a deal with Columbia Records. Other members were Lloyd McGlasson, Ernie Banks, Charlie Brown and Jerry Foster. The group recorded a self-titled 45 in New York City in 1967, when Reynolds was 18. Their most popular song was “King of the Soapbox,” he said. They worked in Jimmi Hendrix’s Electric Lady Studio. Reynolds said he enjoyed his brush with fame, including a tour in the U.S.,

but set aside his own guitar to raise his son, Eric. Through the years he continued with his passion by growing his collection of guitars. The first guitar he purchased was in the mid-1960s. It was a 1956 Paul Goldtop. He found it at a “hawk shop” in Downtown Cincinnati. It was $300, a hefty price at that time, but “I was in love with it as soon as I saw it,” he said. In addition to collecting, Reynolds also works on guitars and is planning to build his own line of guitars called Reynolds Brothers Guitars, named in honor of his father and grandfather. He also plans to volunteer with Guitars for Vets, a nonprofit organization that provides a guitar instruction program aimed at giving veterans struggling with post traumatic stress disorder and other emotional distress a unique therapeutic alternative.

and chronicles his ministry. “We want to build good will and friendship,” said Barbara Rahn, who is the Florence Rotary Club’s adviser for Interact Club. “Those are words we live by in Rotary.” Rahn said the Dominican children who attend the camp are from poor families and are often exposed to drugs and violence. “The youth camps are a place for them to go and learn through Christian values that there is a better way of life,” she said. She said camp participants won’t be the only one’s learning that lesson this summer. “We want to do this trip with our club so our kids learn what they can do for others,” she said. “That’s the way to live ... we should all be responsible for others. When you do that, you get so much more in return.”

“You plan and you drill and you practice for emergency responses and it’s not until something happens that you know how effective your plan is,” said Reiter. “This could have been such a devastating situation.” She said the fire was contained to the dryer; the replacement cost is $5,000 to $6,000. While no animals seemed to be in distress Dec. 31, Reiter said on Jan. 2 two cats were showing signs of respiratory distress and were sent to the Greater Cincinnati Veterinary Specialists and Emergency Services in Wilder. “We’re just hand cleaning the entire shelter,” said Reiter. “Now it’s just a lot of smoke damage.

istrator Jeff Earlywine said the county was pleased to learn there were no injuries, human or animal, and the fire caused no significant property damage. “I think the employees, from all reports, acted quickly and decisively which played a part in minimizing property damage,” he said. According to Earlywine, the county is selfinsured for the first $20,000 of a loss and would pay any claims related to the fire from the county’s insurance fund. That would serve as a way to address expenses that will not have a major impact on the operating budget of the shelter. Despite the fire, shelter operations continue as normal, Reiter said. The shelter is open and has a “responsibility to the animals, and that includes getting them homes.” The shelter is accepting monetary donations as well as supplies to assist in cleanup including paper towels, Dawn dish soap, mop heads and blankets. Donations can be dropped off at the shelter, 5643 Idlewild Road, Burlington.

Kona Ice employees help co-worker grow By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

It’s easy to see the camaraderie between Robby Armstrong, 19, of Hebron and his Kona Ice co-workers on this bitter cold December morning. When he started working at the company’s Florence-based corporate headquarters, Armstrong, a special needs employee, his job was to keep things tidy. But his responsibilities have grown to include other jobs, including mixing flavors, Kona Ice founder Tony Lamb said. Lamb says he was approached by Armstrong’s community living supports provider Dan Henery, who works alongside

Armstrong daily, who asked if the company had interest in placing a special needs individual. “I said absolutely. I don’t think I hesitated a second,” Lamb said. “I didn’t really understand what the whole thing was about but ... it just turned into one of the greatest relationships we have.” According to Henery, Armstrong had a stroke when he was 8 months old. Following surgery, doctors told his parents that if Armstrong made it through the night, he’d never get out of bed. Despite his early obstacles, which also includes a seizure disorder, Armstrong says he plays sports and helps his family on their farm and

“pretty much help around the best I can.” “Robby’s pretty much a part of the family,” Kona Ice operations manager Becca Haggard said. Armstrong’s co-workers never ask whether he can do something, said Henery. Rather, they just say he needs to do a task, “then he’s pushed into doing it and finding a way to do it.” He wouldn’t be nearly as successful if it weren’t for Haggard and fellow

operations manager Ralph McWhorter, “because they see no limitations,” said Henery. “It’s not like we’re not aware, but I’ve challenged him to do things several times where I wasn’t sure he could actually do it,” McWhorter said. “And you know what? He’s over there huffing and puffing and he usually gets it done.”

Former Boone County Commissioner Cathy Flaig filed nomination papers to run for Boone County Commissioner District 1. She previously was a commissioner 1999-2011. Flaig, who along with her husband Bob, owns and operates Flaig Welding Co., Inc., said, “I’m running for County Commissioner because I love serving people. I believe in three core political principles: limited government, fiscal responsibility and free markets. “I have the life experience and proven record of defending conserva-

Thomas More College will change its financial aid policy and offer institutional aid for a fifth year in situations where a traditional full-time undergraduate student needs an extra semester or two in order to finish their primary degree and/or complete their academic goals. The change is effective Jan. 1. By offering aid for the additional year, students will have another resource to reach graduation. The college will also provide support for students who desire to transfer the Thomas More College. Previously, financial aid ended after four years for traditional full-time undergraduate students. This change in policy applies only to Thomas More College scholarships. To be eligible, a student must be in good academic standing at the conclusion of their fourth year and must have been enrolled as a fulltime student for eight consecutive semesters. For transfer students, this includes combining time at Thomas More College and another institution. Students are also required to be enrolled full-time for the additional semester or two to be eligible. Finally, students who are on full scholarship or who wish to use aid not for their primary degree have the opportunity to apply to have a portion of their funds continue. “I have come to understand the financial difficulty many students have in financing their degree when they must attend an additional semester or year,” said college president David Armstrong. “As president, I am excited to remove this barrier to a student’s success.” College vice president of operations Matthew Webster said, “Students often face the dilemma of needing an extra semester or year for very legitimate reasons, such as a change of major or because they transferred to Thomas More, and yet they must personally finance the total cost. President Armstrong’s decision to provide this assistance will give students and their families peace of mind. It will benefit both the student and the institution.” Thomas More College has a strong history of creating opportunities for students to be successful and graduate from the institution. The offer of aid for the fifth year complements initiatives such as the Thomas More Trust, a comprehensive set of financial aid awards, the TMC3 accelerated program, and the room grant program.

ConnectKentucky honors eight tech leaders For the seventh time, ConnectKentucky honored the Commonwealth’s technology leaders at its 2013 Tech Day at The George and Ellen Rieveschl Digitorium in Griffin Hall at Northern Kentucky University. The 2013 Tech Day featured discussions on technology’s impact on education, history, and culture, federal policy updates, and a keynote speech by noted venture capitalist David Jones, Jr. Tech Day allows the state’s broadband leaders to gather and discuss the latest developments in, and impacts of, broadband technology across the state. The event, held in partnership with the Kentucky Historical Society, was sponsored by Humana, tw telecom, and AT&T. ConnectKentucky presented the following awards at the event:

Small Business Technology Award: Instant Access Tours/Battery Row Productions

Instant Access Tours is help-

ing Kentucky towns preserve and promote their history online; converting digital maps and brochures into virtual walking tours that can accessed online or by using your smart phone. Its first tour commemorated the 150th anniversary of the Civil War Battle of Augusta with a website, www.battleofaugusta.org, and a 10-site walking tour that included signage with QR codes so visitors could access the online content via their smartphones.

Using technology in a way that not only enhances the capacity of the institution, but also is teaching a group of young leaders to be informed citizens, is what makes River Ridge Elementary School a worthy winner of the School District Technology Award. Guidance counselor Jill Dilts and school psychologist Jessica Roesch and their fifthgrade media team are using technology to teach 1,100 students and their families the value of digital information.

Postsecondary Institution Technology Award: Northern Kentucky University

Northern Kentucky University needed to provide access to discipline-specific software for students and faculty. In the past, converting classrooms into computer labs, purchasing many desktop computers and loading campus-licensed software, met the need but that solution took up much physical space, was limited to the number of computers provided and the currency of the hardware, and required students to be on campus during business hours. The implemented solution was a virtual desktop that allows students, faculty, and staff to log into what appears to be a “computer lab machine” via the Internet from any personal device. This solution has revolutionized the way that NKU provides software. This innovation work has changed how students get access to the required materials and allows students to be more productive anywhere, anytime.

UNION — She started the first archery program in Northern Kentucky 10 years ago, and now Brenda Klaas is happy to see the rest of the area catching up. Schools such as Cooper High School and Conner Middle School have added to the roster in Boone County, and several schools in Kenton County have added programs as well. More than 300 participants took part in a tournament at Calvary Christian School in Taylor Mill in November, and a similar tourney at Twenhofel Middle School in Taylor Mill filled all its registration spots in the fall. “It’s great news,” Klaas said. “There’s still plenty of room to grow.” Archery became a sanctioned sports activity by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association last school year and, in conjunction with the National Archery in the Schools Program, held its first state championships last March in Louisville. The KHSAA lists more than 90 schools competing in archery across the state with competition in 14 regions. The NASP nationals in May 2013 in Louisville drew a record 9,426 participants, and USA Archery reported 8.589 clubs nationwide, more than double from two years ago. Part of the na-

tional uptick has been because of the popularity of the Hunger Games book and movie series, at a peak now with the release of the Catching Fire movie sequel starring Union native Josh Hutcherson. Ryle is in its first year of full sanctioning by the KHSAA. The Raiders were allowed to participate in the NASP state tourney last year, finishing 27th as a team with several high individual finishes. Klaas said last season that the Raiders would have two regional medalists if they had been sanctioned. Ryle has about 50 kids in the high school program this year, and Gray Middle School on the same campus has more than 100. “We have state in March, and then hopefully nationals, and then we hope to take them to the world tournament,” Klaas said. “We qualified last year but we didn’t have enough kids who were able to make the trip.” The Raiders practice twice a week and are gearing up for the Twenhofel tournament Jan. 17-18. Klaas, the school technology coordinator at Ryle, started the program in 2004 after her husband took her to the state tournament to support friends in the Highlands High School program. She quickly saw the sport was something See ARCHERY, Page A6

Conner senior wins national honor Way earns Award for Excellence Gannett News Service HEBRON — Drew Barker and Andrew Way, best friends and football teammates from Conner High School in Hebron, Ky., were able to come together while both were recognized for excellence during the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio. While Barker’s skills as a quarterback paved his way to the AAB, Way was presented the U.S. Army and Pro Football Hall of Fame Award for Excellence by Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond F. Chandler III and Hall of Fame football player Rod

Woodson at the Lila Cockrell Theatre Jan. 3. The U.S. Army and the Pro Football Hall of Fame partnered to create the Award for Excellence Program to highlight the nation’s top 10 sophomore and junior high school athletes who not only excel athletically, but who also are active in their own communities and distinguish themselves academically. “The nominees for the Award for Excellence possess a unique set of strengths and adherence to a core set of values shared by ‘Army Strong’ soldiers,” said Mark Davis, deputy assistant Sec-

retary of the Army for Marketing and director of the Army Marketing and Research Group. “Way is an outstanding scholar, athlete and citizen and we are proud that he is our recipient of this prestigious honor.” Barker expressed how excited he was about his friend receiving the award and why he deserved such an honor. “Andrew always put as much effort as he can into football and double in the classroom. He’s definitely very deserving,” Barker said. “He’s a great example of how you should handle yourself on and off the field. It’s just awesome that he won.” Barker, who earned enough credits to gradu-

ate from Conner High School at the holiday break and will enroll at UK this month, completed 4 of 6 passes for 54 yards and led the West to its first two scoring drives in a 28-6 win over the East in the Alamodome. Barker was one of three quarterbacks on West roster and entered the game on the final play of the first quarter in place of starter Kyle Allen, who is the No. 1-rated quarterback prospect in the country and committed to Texas A&M. It is not all the time that two student-athletes from the same school are represented at this level, said Conner High School head football coach David See WAY, Page A6

Ryle graduate Hempel helps Harvard to league title By James Weber jweber@nky.com

Ryle High School graduate Conner Hempel had a standout season this past fall for the Harvard University football team. The Crimson were 9-1 overall and won the Ivy League championship by beating Yale 34-7 in the season finale Nov. 23. It was Harvard’s 250th alltime league win. In a game nationally televised on ESPN, Hempel was 19-of-26 for 209 yards and two touchdown passes. He rushed for 57 yards on 10 carries as well. For the season (eight games), he completed 66 percent of his passes for 1,866 yards and 15 touchdowns, while rushing for 259 yards and five TDs. He missed two games dur-

Trosper. “For our community and our program to have two guys to be involved in such high-priority deals is unexplainable,” said Trosper. “It’s unbelievable, this is what, as a coach, you dream about ... Andrew fits everything the Army is about, and as a coach, he fits what we are all about.” Despite all his work to earn the award, when Way’s name was announced, a look of surprise came across his face. “I can’t believe I won this award. It truly is an honor to win an award

ing the year. He had four TD passes in a game twice, also throwing for more than 300 yards in each one, including a career high of 345 yards in his first start, a win at San Diego. The 66 percent passing is third highest in Harvard history. He was third in the Ivy League in passing yards per game and honorable mention all-league selection. “If you’re going to play quarteback for Harvard, you got to be a multi-dimenstional guy,” said Harvard head coach Tim Murphy. “He can do that. He’s an excellent runner. He’s a 1,000-yard rusher in high school. He’s done a great job throwing the ball and he creates a lot of problems for defenses. Conner was playing his that is involved with the U.S. Army and everything that the Army stands for,” Way said. As shocked as he was for earning such a prestigious award, Way was just as struck that his best friend was there to share the moment as more than just a spectator. “Drew has been my best friend since we were kids and it is great that we have someone representing us in the game. It feels like it was meant to be since we are both here. It’s just an honor,” Way said. Hall of Fame football player Anthony Munoz believes strongly on awarding more than just athletic abilities. “I think it is excellent

best football of the year.” The 6-foot-3, 215-pound sophomore is a sociology major at the prestigious Ivy League school. Harvard, like other Ivy League schools, does not participate in the NCAA postseason. As a freshman, Hempel was 15-of-24 combined in three appearances, throwing for 165 yards overall. He took over the job this fall. In preseason interviews, he said he learned a lot from 2012 starter Colton Chapple, who graduated. “His dedication, filmwatching,” Hempel said. “He’s always down here and I lived with him last semester. He helped me a lot, being a leader on the field and how he carries himself. This is my third year in the offense so I know these guys pretty

well.” Hempel was a threeyear starter and team captain at Ryle. He was honorable mention all-state and first-team all-conference as a senior, and voted a top-10 player in Northern Kentucky by area coaches. He finished his career with 6,139 career yards and 60 touchdowns, including 1,294 yards and nine touchdowns in his senior year. He also rushed for more than 1,000 yards in his senior season, which was highlighted by a 28-26 win over powerhouse Highlands in 2010. That was Highlands’ last loss to a Kentucky team until this year’s state final. Hempel rushed for 128 yards and three TDs in that win, and threw for 70. Ryle was 12-2 that year,

Questions on SNAP surprising SNAP is our Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly food stamps. It’s our nations’s flagship nutrition program and main safety net preventing families from going hungry. Recently, many of us participated in Pope Francis’s Day of Prayer for ending hunger. Advent being the time of expectation, and Christmas the time of Gift and gifts, it seems important to me to follow Bread For the World’s encouragement to help our members of Congress put first things first. I phoned (Sen. Mitch) McConnell and (Congressman

Thomas) Massie with the request to protect SNAP and international food aid from cuts in the farm bill. Mr. McConVickie nell’s staff Cimprich person took COMMUNITY down my reRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST quest. Mr. Massie’s staff person said they’d been getting a lot of calls about SNAP, and she wanted to ask me some questions. Of course. But I found the two questions very surprising.

What challenges are coming your way? “O’ Lord, I pray, please let your ear be attentive to the prayer of your servant, and to the prayer of your servants who desire to fear your name; and let your servant prosper this day, I pray, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man.” (Nehemiah 1:11) There will be many challenges for us in 2014. Maybe you’ve already had your fair share in January. Challenges regarding our finances, future plans, issues in the workplace, church, or neighborhood. The list is endless. Challenges can cause us to do many things – act in haste, run away, become discouraged, remain on edge, or “clam up” and freeze. We could learn a lot from a certain man in the bible about how to face challenges. A man by the name of Nehemiah, we’re told, was “the king’s cupbearer.” This meant he acted as bodyguard, adviser and food taster for the king. (I don’t know about you, but that sounds a lot like the role of a parent to me.) Yet when Nehemiah was in great distress over the ruin of Jerusalem, his homeland, the bible tells us he “sat down and wept, and mourned for many days; I was fasting and praying before the God of heaven.” (Nehemiah 1:4) Nehemiah did not act hastily, run away, become discouraged, remain on edge or “clam up” and freeze. He did not become outraged or “check out” with pills or alcohol. Make no mistake, he was hurting and he took his pain and overwhelming circumstances to the only one who could fix them: God. What’s also interesting about Nehemiah’s response to

First, should a person’s employment status be tied to receiving food aid? I thought of all the children, elderly and disabled at risk of hunger. Of parents and other care givers who can’t participate in the job market, having to work in their homes. (The cuts to child-care aid have driven many peop le out of the work force.) Of people unable to find work. Of how being able to work depends on health and health depends on adequate nutrition. I said to the staff person that food must come first. The second question was: Should drug testing be re-

quired for persons to receive food aid? My first thought was that whoever thought this up hasn’t been reading our daily newspaper The Enquirer. For weeks its news and feature articles have provided expert medical testimony that addictions are medical, not moral or character, issues. This question seems to class many of us, our families and friends, in with athletes and race horses who get drug tested in order to compete. Once again I responded to Mr. Massie’s staff person that basic health and rehabilitation means basic nutrition. For over 30 years, I’ve

found Bread For the World’s action plans and spiritual guidance very helpful. It’s a collective Christian voice urging our nation’s decision makers to end hunger at home and abroad. It sponsors Rick Steves’s travel programs. Check BFW out for a Christmas present to yourself and your world: www.bread.org.

his situation is what he did first: “sat down and wept.” Many of us try not to weep when problems Julie arise. We feel House the need to “remain COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST strong” for our COLUMNIST spouses, children, and others who may perceive our tears as discouragement, weakness or “breaking down.” In my recent journey to more fully experience the presence of God I often find myself weeping uncontrollably in a church service. And even my precious 6 year old is aware of the negative connotations associated with crying, as she is often the first to ask, “Are you sad mommy? Don’t cry.” Tears can be profoundly cleansing, a detox of the mind, and incredibly healing. A good cry has the ability to provide great clarity and direction. You may not feel the need to let out a good wail in public the next time you’re faced with a challenge, but in the coming year, I challenge you not to hold back when the tears are persisting. If one of your resolutions for the new year is to grow closer to Christ, and become a stronger man or woman of God, remember what John 11:35 says, that even “Jesus wept.” Julie House is founder of Equipped Ministries, a Christian-based health and wellness program.

Site turns sick kids into superheroes By Adam Kiefaber akiefaber@cincinnati.com

Inspired by her own hero, Jackie Waters of Highland Heights recently launched a website devoted to transforming children battling illnesses into superheroes. HelpYourHero.org launched recently and was created in memory of Waters’ hero: her sister Tracy Siemer, who battled a rare form of brain cancer for 21 years. Siemer had a strong support group while she fought cancer. Waters created the website in hopes that others could experience that same level of support, but in a unique way. After being diagnosed with mesenchymal chondrosarcoma, Siemer and her family were told by doctors at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Edgewood that no one survived the cancer. Siemer didn’t want to believe it. She was determined to be the first to survive. She decided that she wanted to be a superhero. In November 2000, just before Siemer underwent her third brain surgery, she knew she had to be tough for her two sons, her friends and her family. What she did next will never be forgotten to those close to her. Just before the surgery, Siemer bought Superman pajamas and nicknamed herself Superwoman T-Si. People in Siemer’s corner became known as her superfriends. “It was a way for us to keep Superwoman T-Si in the forefront of our minds instead of her disease,” Waters said. Superwoman T-Si succumbed to cancer in May 2012 at 45, leaving behind her two sons, Austin and Chaz. “Going through 21 years of this rare brain cancer where she wasn’t

even expected to live and never asked God, ‘Why me?’ – that really pushed me to look at life differently,” Waters said. “It made me realize that if she can do it, than I can do this and we need to pay it forward for everything that people did for us.” The idea behind HelpYourHero.org is to create a community that needs help engaging others with their story in a fun and entertaining way. On the website, parents can help their child create a superhero persona and build superhero headquarters. “When someone is diagnosed with a disease, people don’t know what to do,” Waters said. “It is very overwhelming. You don’t know what to do and you don’t know what to tell them. When people don’t know what to do, they retreat. “Help Your Hero was built because we needed to find a way to help people help their hero. Now people have something else besides the illness itself to talk about.” There are 24 different superhero designs from which to choose. Patients can name themselves and create a forum or a blog from hero headquarters. Parents are encouraged to get sidekick (a close family friend) to help share their superhero’s story. The website, which boasts a handful of superheroes, is sustained through merchandise sales, Waters said. She hopes to have sponsorships as well, so she can improve Help Your Hero by adding interactive games and printed versions of personalized comic books. After signing in, the example that guides parents through creation of their superhero is The Great GHawk. The Great G-Hawk, known offline as Grant Janszen, battled osteosar-

Grant Janszen was visited by Will Smith before he passed away in 2004 from bone cancer. Grant is nickmaned The Great G Hawk on HelpYourHero.org. His story is used to inspire others to share their heroes story with others in a online community for children battling illness.PROVIDED.

coma for almost two years before passing away in August 2004. Named after his love for the Kansas Jayhawks, The Great G-Hawk was also known for his great sense of humor. “He was always so full of life. ... I didn’t help him. He helped me,” his mom, Glenna Janszen, of California, Ky., said. “He had so much hope. He always believed.” The Great G-Hawk had many people or superfriends believing in him. During his battle with bone cancer, University of Kansas head basketball coach Bill Self and former athletic director Lew Perkins invited The Great GHawk to multiple basketball games, including a home matchup against rival Missouri. Self then had

the teenager speak to his team after the game. Self and Perkins also gave The Great G-Hawk a scholarship to Kansas if the school was lucky enough to have him. “How humbling is it to think that the coach of the Kansas Jayhawks and the athletic director were on your side fighting this battle,” Glenna Janszen said. “It helped him to know that he had all these people behind him.” In addition to that experience, Grant Janszen received a visit from actor Will Smith through the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Grant couldn’t use his previous wish, which was a cruise, because he was too weak at the time. Instead, Grant’s favorite actor surprised him with a visit just days before he died in 2004 at the age of 15. “Help Your Hero is trying to pay it forward,” Glenna said. “When our heroes see people coming behind them and showing support, that could be the line between healing or giving them a better quality of life.”

Glenna Janszen’s hero was her son, Grant, who is nicknamed The Great G Hawk. His story is shared on HelpYourHero.org, which was created with the idea of creating a community of people who need help engaging with their story in a fun and entertaining way.PROVIDED. Jackie Waters’ hero was her sister Tracy Siemer, who passed away from a rare form of brain cancer after a 21-year fight in 2012. During the fight, Siemer gave herself the nickname Superwoman T-Si to show strength. That inspired Waters to help children with illnesses by making them superheroes on HelpYourHero.org. PROVIDED

Quick! Snap a photo “No!” Nosey barked, “I don’t want to be an angel!” She wiggled out of my arms, grabbed the white feather halo I was trying to place on her head and dashed through the house. I followed in hot pursuit, through the living room, down the hallway and into the bedroom. When I entered the darkened boudoir, she was no Marsie Hall where to Newbold be seen. MARSIE’S The steady MENAGERIE thumpthump-thump of her wagging tail gave away her location as the corner behind my vanity where she was happily chewing the heavenly headgear to bits. “Give me that,” I intoned in my very best “Alpha Doggie Mother” voice, grabbing at her collar. Success! “Aaaarrrroooooo!” she howled, spitting out a mouthful of slobbery feathers. “OK, now can I have my treat?” “Nope, it doesn’t work that way, missy,” I sighed, opening her mouth and checking for stray fluff. “You only get treats for sitting still and letting me take cute pictures of you.” That’s a tall order for a mischievous 71 1 ⁄2-pound basset hound, but, after three years of living with us, you’d think she’d be used to it.

Tom and I never had human children and we are, admittedly, those whacko “dog people” that non-pet lovers roll their eyes at. So, needless to say, Nosey has led a constantly photographed life. The archbishop of Covington has a framed photo of Nosey sitting in the middle of the Nativity scene in front of St. Thomas Church in Fort Thomas. We have photos of her leading the Mount Adams Reindog Parade with former Cincinnati Reds pitcher Tom Browning, chasing several ceremonial “first pitches” at Florence Freedom baseball games, begging in front of Dixie Chili and being fed a T-bone by the executive chef in the lobby of Jeff Ruby’s. Taking photos of Nosey is one of the great joys of my life. It’s fun, creative and a great opportunity to spend time playing with her. So, imagine how thrilled I was when I met pet photographer/animal rescue worker Carol Locey at the YWCA’s Bark Out Against Battering a few months ago. I had been searching for someone just like her to guest on my “Marsie’s Menagerie” radio program on 1480 WDJO. Talk about ask and ye shall receive? Carol gave me and my listeners simple to follow advice on getting professional quality photographs of your pets using your own camera. I’ve taken her tips to

heart and they have taken my photos of Nosey and Squeaker Snow our hamster to a whole new level. Don’t use a flash. That will prevent glowing eyeballs. It can also startle your pets which will make them run from the camera now and in the future. Do something to get their attention. Carol uses duck calls. Don’t say their names because they will start walking toward you. De-clutter the scene. Move dirty socks, toys and anything that doesn’t need to be in the background of your photo. The “cleaner” the shot, the better. If you can’t de-clutter, zoom in close. Fill the frame with their beautiful faces, focusing on the eyes. Think ahead and stage your photo. Put your pet in a beautiful scene, sit them on a chair in front of a window, etc. Unfortunately, Carol couldn’t give me any advice on how to get Nosey to hold still. I know I complain a lot, but that is sort of part of the fun. Pet care expert Marsie Hall Newbold is a resident of Highland Heights.
