Boone County Schools is working out its budget for the next fiscal year, and things don’t look hopeful. “It’s not going to be a good year,” said Superintendent Randy Poe.
The Board of Education passed a draft budget for the fiscal year that starts July 1. Last year the, amidst funding woes, the district cut 50 positions, and it’s possible that more cuts may be coming, he said. Poe placed the blame for funding issues on the state. “It’s not our local revenues; it’s our state revenues that aren’t keeping pace,” Poe said. For the last few years, bal-
ancing the state’s budget was aided by federal stimulus money. The stimulus money is gone now, and state leaders are likely to cut from SEEK funding to make up for it, Poe said. SEEK (Support Education Excellence in Kentucky), a formula-driven, state-funded money allocation program, doles out money to schools based on a county’s wealth. The funding cut for Boone County looks to be about $2.4

Harley plans moving forward Dealer to team up with a restaurant email@example.com

FLORENCE — Robert Nolan is hoping to see construction on the Quaker Steak and Lube and Harley-Davidson dealer combination start this month. Nolan owns Thoroughbred Harley-Davidson in Florence and is moving his store to 8025 Action Boulevard, formerly Dodgeland, sharing the space with the motorsports themed restaurant. The Boone County Planning Commission held a public hearing about a special signage request for the facility. Before any final decisions are made, the planning commission and the city of Florence will decide if the signage request fits the area. Nolan feels pretty good about how things are going and left the public hearing feeling confident that things will go through smoothly. Having the two stores move forward is the result of three years of planning, Nolan said. “We’ve been through the worst of the economic time, I hope,” he said. Putting the two stores together should create a destination for Harley-Davidson riders, Nolan said. Normally Harley-Davidson dealerships like to host cruise-ins and other events, but it is always difficult to secure adequate vending for food and beer. Having Quaker Steak in the same parking lot will solve that issue, he said. “For us it’s a match made in heaven,” Nolan said. Action Boulevard is generally considered the “back door” to Florence Mall, but Nolan plans to improve the appeal of the area, he said.

’37 FLOOD AFFECTED BOONE COMMUNITIES Library has history of event
By Stephanie Salmons firstname.lastname@example.org
Nestled along the Ohio River, some Boone County communities weren’t safe when the water began to rise in January 1937. According to the Encyclopedia of Northern Kentucky, water levels in 1937 rose throughout a “very wet January as rain and snowmelt combined to swell both the Ohio River and its tributaries.” Over the course of 10 days, the Ohio River swelled to 80 feet, more than 27 feet above flood stage, it reads. This month marks the 75th anniversary of the flood. Tom Schiffer of Florence, a member of the Boone County Historic Preservation Review Board, has written a history of the flood’s impact on the county for the Boone County Public Library. “Many houses were twisted off their foundation in Constance, Hamilton (and) Rabbit Hash,” Schiffer said.

million right now, Poe said. During the course of the legislative session, that number could go up or down. “There’s no good signs coming from Frankfort,” Poe said. Before passing an actual budget, the district will see what effect on funding this year’s legislative session will have.

deering” about seven domestic washing machines and setting them up in the school. A house that floated down the river was caught by a Mr. Locke “who set it on a foundation and lived in it the rest of his life,” Schiffer said. The original owners “came and got their pictures off the wall.” The house, still standing today, is located near Rabbit Hash, he said. Schiffer, who was just under 2 at the time, witnessed the flood himself – even if he might not remember it. “My mother told me several times in my lifetime ‘Well, you saw it. I made sure you saw it,’” he said. Brothers Russel and Bob Schwenke, who farm near Big Bone, may not have been around for the flood, but they’ve heard the stories. Their father and uncle had a 20-foot wooden jon boat with a small engine used during the flood. “That was their flood machine,” Russel Schwenke said. According to Bob Schwenke, his dad and uncle said they hauled a lot of rock during the flood “and weighted buildings down so the houses wouldn’t float away.” Local farmers also had the problem of getting livestock moved to higher

According to the stories they’ve heard, Bob Schwenke said their dad and uncle were figuring out a strategy – which included taking a side of a barn and building a flat boat – to get a local farm’s livestock away from the water before the water finally began receding. Former Boone County Judge-executive Bruce Ferguson of Union was 7 when the flood struck. The flood left a lasting impression, he said. It happened at the height of the Great Depression, Ferguson said. “Boy did it happen at a bad time,” he said. “People were already poor and hungry and that just made more people poor and hungry.” Growing up in Union, they were far from the river, but his grandparents lived on Scott Street in Covington, he said. His grandmother called, telling his mother the fam-
ily should come to the city. Once there, they drove as close as they could get to the 12th Street bridge “and just watched houses floating down the Licking River into the Ohio,” Ferguson said. “It was amazing to see a house floating.” If you stayed there long enough, he said, you would see them pop loose from their foundations. His parents even drove the family to Rabbit Hash where all he can remember seeing is the roof of the store. They lost electric to their home during the flood, but Ferguson remembers the family had a gas lantern and a batterypowered radio. “On that radio, all day long and all night, they’d say ‘Send a boat. Send a boat.’ That’s what you would hear.” Ferguson said he was “amazed” at the flooding he saw. “I just couldn’t believe there would be that much water.”

Someone approaches as you’re leaving a store and gives you a story about how he’s run out of gas and just needs a few bucks to get home. What do you do? “If people feel so inclined, they should help,” said Capt. Linny Cloyd of the Florence Police Department. Solicitors is a situation that ebbs and flows in Boone County, and sometimes it is legitimately a person in need, Cloyd said. “It’s often a scammer preying on people’s generosity,” he said. Scammers tend to
know where they can go and be the most successful, Cloyd said. “This is a giving community,” he said. Like the Florence Police Department, the Boone County Sheriff’s Office doesn’t want to tell people how to respond, said spokesman Tom Scheben. “You’ve got to go where your heart and your head lead you,” Scheben said. If a solicitor gets aggressive and doesn’t accept “no” for an answer, the departments will send officers to help out. “If we see it overtly, we’ll move them along,” Cloyd said. In Florence, those who
are genuinely in need can get help by contacting the police department. “We’ve got some resources and people we can call and get some help,” Cloyd said. Often, the police departments don’t get those calls, he said. “Now we hear about it word of mouth,” Cloyd said. Economic factors don’t usually have much of an effect on the frequency of scammers, he said. “It’s been going on for years,” Cloyd said. Before the tough economy set in, the department was still getting calls about the same kinds of issues, he said.
Investigators seek copper thieves Community Recorder The Boone County Sheriff’s Department Scrap Unit is investigating the theft of a large amount of copper wire taken from the Eaton Asphalt satellite plant, 212 East Frogtown Road, near Walton.

Book about Kiger looks at ‘Man Beyond the Murder’ firstname.lastname@example.org
You may know the name, but how much do you know about the man? “Carl Kiger: The Man Beyond the Murder,” the recently published book by Rabbit Hash author Robert Schrage, explores the life and background of Carl Kiger. Kiger was a prominent Covington polSchrage itician in the 1930s and 1940s and the city’s vice mayor. He and his 6-year-old son Jerry were shot to death at the family’s Rosegate Farm –
THANKS TO ROBERT SCHRAGE
located on Dixie Highway close to Richwood – Kiger’s wife, Jennie Kiger, was also wounded. According to the book’s preface, written by Bridg-
et Striker, Boone County Public Library’s local history coordinator, Jennie Kiger and the couple’s daughter Joan, 15 when the murders occurred, were indicted for the “willful murders” of Carl and Jerry. Joan went to trial first for the death of her brother and was acquitted. Afterward, charges against her mother were dropped. The murder trial was “certainly one of the biggest murder trials in Northern Kentucky,” Schrage said. A lot has been written about the murder “but nobody knew anything about the murder victim, Carl Kiger,” he said. Kiger was one of the most powerful politicians
in Northern Kentucky at the time, both popular and controversial, Schrage said. “Then right when he achieved the height of his political success, he was murdered,” he said. Schrage said he was interested that Kiger came from the “sort of the same neighborhood” he did – Kiger was born and raised on the west end of Covington while Schrage was born on the east end of Ludlow. “But I’ve always been very interested in history and politics and this book has both of them,” Schrage said. “I mean it’s got tremendous Northern Kentucky history in it.” He was not only intrigued by the time period
but he wanted to find out what Kiger stood for, Schrage said. The book explains the issues important to Kiger and what drove him as a politician, he said. It also discusses who Kiger’s friends were, Schrage said. “He had political enemies and he had political friends,” he said. The book goes into the “cast of characters that were influential in Kiger’s life.” “I think the loose end of all this stuff about this famous murder trial in Northern Kentucky was the fact we didn’t know anything about the murder victim,” Schrage said. “I think it finally will put a closing chapter on that story that is missing.”
2,000 families assisted with spay/neuter By Stephanie Salmons email@example.com
The Friends of the Shelter organization has reached a milestone in their efforts to bring low cost spay/neuter services to Northern Kentucky pets. More than 2,000 families were provided financial assistance during 2011 for the procedures. Friends of the Shelter offers vouchers that pet owners may use with their local vets and also provides transports to low cost spay/neuter clinics. Friends president Bonnie Ravenscraft, of Florence, said vouchers, which can be given for cats or dogs, are good for the face value of the voucher. That amount is then taken off the bill. The voucher is sent back to the organization which pays for it, she said. They started giving vouchers to keep “the puppies and kittens out of the shelters and it has worked,” Rav-
Boone County Animal Shelter director Beckey Reiter, tests a dog's reaction to her extended hand at the shelter. The Friends of the Shelter provided financial assistance to more than 2,000 families during 2011 for spay/neuter services – which helps keep animals out of shelters. FILE PHOTO enscraft said. United Coalition for Animals and Ohio Alley Cat Rescue participate in the program. This is the largest amount of people they’ve helped in a year, she said. Next year, Ravenscraft said she doesn’t know if that number will increase, but the organization will try to
match it. “It does take take quite a bit of money and we’re primarily working through donations,” she said. The program is an important one because “it does help keep animals out of the shelters,” Ravenscraft said. The low cost services are critical to the shelter’s efforts to save more lives, said Jan Chapman, treasurer of the Friends group. “The birth of more kittens and puppies means that those already awaiting homes in local shelters are less likely to find one,” she said. “Some areas of the country have done such a good job of spaying and neutering their animals that they often have a shortage of adoptable animals.” The Friends organization works primarily with shelters in Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties. Families needing financial assistance for spay/neuter services can contact 859-282-9084 for more information.
Schrage will discuss his book at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18, at the Main branch of the Boone County Public Library, 1786 Burlington Pike, Burlington. A book signing will follow and books will be available for purchase. Schrage said he plans to talk about what the issues in Covington were at the time and how Kiger fit into them as well as what he wanted to achieve.

Ockerman students growing vegetables
Fun with books
Program teaches kids about science By Justin B. Duke email@example.com
FLORENCE — Ockerman Elementary students are getting excited about their vegetables. The Florence school’s fourthgraders are participating in the Veggie U program, which is being offered for free through Chipotle. The five-week program is designed to teach kids the connection between growing vegetables and the food they eat. Along the way, science lessons will be given. “It’s very life science oriented,” said teacher Sarah Rutherford. Through the program, students will grow their own vegetables, work a worm farm and learn about making healthy food choices. “At the end of this, the kids will harvest what they’ve grown,” Rutherford said. Employees from Chipotle will come in and give a demonstration

Three Union residents attend military school Two Union brothers are earning recognition at Fishburne Military School in Waynesboro, Va. Second Lt. Everett “Rhett” Schuster, a runner on Fishburne’s cross country team, was awarded the James G. Hogg Award for sportsmanship. Cpl. James “Clay” Schuster was named “Ca-
det of the Month” and will serve as an S1 personnel officer in 2012. Rhett, class of 2012, started at Fishburne in February 2010 and was joined by his brother, class of 2013, last August. Their first cousin, Pvt. Bryce England, class of 2013 and also of Union, started at Fishburne in October.
on making guacamole using student-grown vegetables. “It’ll be something they remember,” Rutherford said. The program is well timed because fourth-graders are assessed on science in state testing. Having the five-week program where students are working every day should leave a big impression, she said. “It’s a very hands-on, visual learning experience they don’t al-
ways get,” Rutherford said. Even though the program is just under way and much of the supplies aren’t in yet, students are already enthusiastic and are quick to share what they are doing in class with their parents, she said. “They’re very excited,” Rutherford said.

Like the students in Boone County Schools, the members of its board of education must do their homework. This means sifting through complicated test data and financial reports while keeping abreast of the latest requirements handed down from state and federal governments, to name just a few “subjects.” Karen Byrd, Bonnie Rickert, Ken Cook, Steve Kinman and Ed Massey conduct business at one or more meetings monthly, but you’ll often find them at ball games, school celebrations and civic events because they are a link between the school system and the community. These responsibilities and others are the reason Kentucky and other states set aside the month of January to thank local school board members during School Board Recognition Month. These five members of the Boone County School’s Board of Education oversee the budget and help make decisions about multimillion-dollar
building projects. All this is done in the face of shrinking state and federal dollars for education and tough economic times locally. But beyond those “macro” duties, they also make certain the individual child in Boone County Schools gets what he or she needs to successfully learn in school and beyond. At the regular school board meeting Jan. 13, Byrd, Rickert, Cook, Kinman and Massey were recognized for their service in a proclamation from Judge-executive Gary Moore. When asked why their service as a school board member is important to them, this is what they said: “I became a board member 17 years ago because I wanted a better and brighter future for my children which quickly broadened into that same desire for all children who ever reside in Boone County. To have a stronger and better community, you have to ensure that the children of that community are prepared to lead it. To prepare them, you have to educate them with a strong public education sys-
tem. That system can only be built with hard work, team work and commitment.” – Karen Byrd “I do it for the kids … That simple.” – Ken Cook “I serve on the board because I enjoy working with people who share the same passion and genuine concern about public education that I do. We work together to serve the students of Boone County providing the resources and tools educators need to prepare our kids for the 21st century.” – Steve Kinman “I do this because education is the backbone of our future. I also do this because of the vested interest I have with my own children attending the public schools in Boone County and the benefit of any time I spend advocating for that education is priceless.” – Bonnie Rickert “I have a passion for children and education and want to help them realize their dreams and goals.” – Ed Massey

VETERAN RAIDERS EDGE COUGARS
Senior Cheesman returns to court after injury By James Weber email@example.com
UNION — Whether or not she was making key plays, Ashley Cheesman is thrilled to be back on the basketball court and being part of a victory. In her second game of the season Jan. 13, the Ryle High School senior guard made two key plays to help the Raiders in a key 33rd District win over rival Conner. Cheesman sank three-point baskets on two consecutive possessions midway through the fourth quarter to lead the Raiders to a 63-52 win over the Cougars. The shots gave Ryle an eight-point cushion, its largest of the night to that point. Ryle beat Highlands the next day. Cheesman was taken to the hospital after hitting her head on the floor during that game and her status was unknown as of press time Jan. 16. Cheesman has been playing for a week after tearing the ACL in her left knee seven months ago. The returning starter at point guard came off the bench against Conner, a brace covering her left leg, and played limited minutes. But she stepped up with those shots and had eight points for the game. “It felt great,” she said. “I missed it so much the whole time I was off. The win felt great. I was willing to help my team in any way possible and I was happy to contribute to the win.” After the Conner win, head coach Patti Oliverio was thrilled that one of her senior leaders is back. “I’m happy for her,” Oliverio said. “She’s been playing basketball for a long time. I’m glad she’s able to finish out her senior year. I suffered a knee injury myself in high school and college, and I know what hard work she has had to go through to get back. Personally, for her, I’m glad she can come back and enjoy the game.” Cheesman injured her knee on June 17 and immediately started focusing on coming back to help the Raiders, who have a shot at their first regional championship this season. “The whole time I was thinking about when my next game was going to be because at that instant I knew it could have been the last game I ever played,” she said. “I didn’t want to go out on that game. I wanted to fight my way back, play my senior year and be out here for my team, then go to college and play. I have to thank my God, my trainers and my surgeon, and all the support from my family and friends that have helped me push through this.” The game was a pivotal one to start the seeding process for the 33rd District Tournament. Ryle improved to 14-2 and Conner dropped to 13-4 after winning just 11 games last year. Conner won its 14th game the next day with a rout of Madison Southern. Against Ryle, Conner led by six points (29-23) early in the third period, then Ryle went on an 11-2 run to take the lead. Ryle led by two points when Cheesman hit her baskets. After that, Ryle made the key

plays to stay ahead. Ryle senior Jenna Crittendon and junior McKell Oliverio led Ryle with 14 points. Senior Tyianna Douthit had 13 and junior guard Dawn Johnson 11. “We picked up the intensity in the second half and made some adjustments,” coach Oliverio said. “McKell kept us in the game when everybody else was struggling. We have five players who can score in double
figures on any given night and tonight we had all five.” Conner had went 11-17 last year and graduated Toria Fischer and her 20 points per game. While the Cougars have several players who have been in the program, they don’t have a lot of experience in big games. “(Ryle is) where we want to be,” said second-year head coach Aaron Stamm. “We’re close, but we’re not there yet. A championship team like Ryle makes plays down the stretch. I really believe they’re one of the best teams and a lot of it is you can’t junk (defense) them. You can’t try to sag off anybody. All five of their starters can score, all five of them can take you off the dribble.” Senior guard Dawn Peacock scored 16 points against Ryle had a school record 37 earlier this year. The Cougars won four games in as many days to win their inaugural holiday tournament, including wins over Highlands and Newport Central Catholic. “Our point guard, Chelsea Castleberry, is pushing the ball and getting to the lane, and the kids are hitting shots,” Stamm See HOOPS, Page A8

At the Lexington Catholic Holiday Classic, Ryle split with two highly ranked Louisville teams, falling to Mercy by four and beating Butler by six. Ryle’s other loss is to a ranked team in Lexington Dunbar. The Raiders will head out of town again Jan. 20-21, playing at a Louisville Mercy showcase. Ryle will start Friday with Manual, last year’s state runner-up and favorite for this year’s state title. Then the Raiders will play perennial power Sacred Heart on Saturday. Conner will host Cooper Jan. 20. Both teams will play Boone County between Jan. 31 and Feb. 3 in key games. Boone is favored to win the district and the region.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Creation Museum employee responds
We are responding to the guest column that attacked us and our future Ark Encounter, a full-size Noah’s Ark and other attractions in Northern Kentucky. We flatly reject the charge that we “lack respect for science.” Scientific discoveries have provided great benefits. Furthermore, we employ several staff with doctorate degrees; my PhD is in molecular genetics from Ohio State University. The columnist has probably led many readers to a wrong conclusion about the Ark’s funding. When she claims “state aid” for the Ark will be received, here is what was conveniently omitted: the only taxpayer who will help fund the park is the person who actually visits and pays sales tax. A portion of that tax might be refunded to the Ark LLC if attendance milestones are reached. No money will come from the state budget. In reality, the Ark Encounter will add millions of dollars to the state treasury annually.
Also, there is no church-state conflict. There is no “establishment” of religion because the state is not compelling anyone to visit the Ark. It’s a pity that in a tough economy, Ark opponents don’t seem to mind hurting the state’s coffers – as well as thousands of job seekers. For more, see AnswersInGenesis.org.

Revenue ideas for Boone County
A neighbor who drove his fourwheel recreation vehicle through our community park following a recent snowfall caused me to think of ways Boone County, its cities and other community groups could gain additional income: 1. Sell permits that allow fourwheelers to operate within the parks. They do it anyway, so, heck

– charge for the service. 2. Sell permits that allow dumping within area parks. I’ll thank two neighbors for this idea because they both dumped large amounts of dirt, rocks and stones in our community park, next to the No Dumping sign and federally mandated floodplain mandate. 3. The sale of late-night, OK-tozoom permits would cause teen speeders to worry less and focus more. A city could also add a $20 clause that allows the little sweet-
hearts to continue ignoring stop signs. 4. Finally, Boone County could issue permits that allow its residents to disregard red lights, a common practice we’ve all surely noticed. With such a permit, those drivers could concentrate more on avoiding cross traffic, rather than scanning the horizon for patrol cars. Darek Johnson Union
Failure to protect natural resources reason for concern Boone County has experienced exponential population growth in the past decade. Growth comes with a great price. Our location in a major Tristate area threatens the quality of our environment, especially air and water quality. When the Boone County Fiscal Court recently approved the expenditure of federal funds to purchase undeveloped property on Gunpowder Creek, it was not to squander or waste taxpayer dollars. It was to see that our federal funds were returned to our community. The Fiscal Court acted with foresight and vision regarding the need for balancing growth and protecting irreplaceable natural resources. The Boone Conservancy Inc. is a private nonprofit organization whose mission is to preserve Boone County’s natural resources and green space. The Boone Conservancy agreed to provide matching funds because it recognized the importance of conserving the property the county recently voted to pur-
chase, which is known as the “Simpson Property.” There are many reasons for conserving and protecting Sharon our natural reElliston sources, not the least of COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST which is proCOLUMNIST tecting and improving the water quality of high priority watershed areas such as Gunpowder Creek. Northern Kentucky University and Thomas More biologists have identified the Gunpowder Creek watershed as one of the most important watersheds in Boone County. The Simpson Property abuts the Boy Scout’s Camp Michaels and is located in close proximity to Sperti Nature Park, Central Park and other preserved properties. Long before there was a Gunpowder Creek trail proposal or a parks tax initiative, this par-
ticular area was considered worthy of protection due to its natural beauty. To view this purchase as a linchpin for a trail system is a grave mistake and diminishes the conservation opportunities afforded by such a unique property. During trying times, Boone County has responsibly managed its budget in a manner that has made it a model for other counties in the state. Our county officials have the vision and foresight to use taxpayer dollars prudently and wisely to conserve natural resources for future generations. If we fail to conserve property when it is available, it will not be available to preserve in the future. Boone County officials know what draws families and businesses to the county. Progress, growth, economic development balanced with conservation is the formula for its success. In Boone County people with sometimes differing views worked together to accomplish a positive out-
come. Nothing worth accomplishing is easy and without controversy. One project at a time, each of us can contribute toward leaving a better community to future generations. I believe our Fiscal Court should be applauded, not criticized, for their decision. The Fiscal Court voted to preserve property in our county so that future generations will be able to experience the beauty of our natural resources that we are fortunate to experience today. As Teddy Roosevelt, a president who is widely recognized for his conservation efforts, said, “The conservation of natural resources is the fundamental problem. Unless we solve that problem it will avail us little to solve all others.” Sharon Elliston has been a Boone County resident since 1972 and has witnessed the changes in the county over the past 40 years. She has served on the board of The Boone Conservancy since 2005 and is currently chairperson.
Working to ease traffic frustration Last week Edward Turner III had a guest column that expressed the same thoughts of many who drive through Florence. The extremely large volume of traffic has all of us waiting for what seems like a neverending number of stop lights, idling our engines, and unhappy with the amount of time it takes to move from one side of the city to the other. City officials continue to have discussions with the Kentucky Department of Transportation about ways we can help to ease some of the frustration that we all experience with traffic movements. I forwarded my comments and a copy of Mr. Turner’s article to Rob Hans, the Chief District Engineer of our local state transportation office (District 6). What follows is his response: “Thanks for passing along
the newspaper article and your comments. I’ll have our traffic staff review the signal systems in Diane Whalen the area and evaluate any COMMUNITY possible adRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST justments to improve traffic flows. Most of the signal systems in and around the Ky. 18 corridor should be set to operate on adjustable plans based on time of day. This allows for more time for corridors when needed and better operation of the roadway network. “Possibly, some of the signal controllers have lost their timing plan. Also, the signal system on Ky. 18 is a synchronized system for Ky. 18 traffic flow,

This should be back online soon. “As you mention, the traffic volumes are very heavy in the Florence area (specifically the U.S. 42 and Ky. 18 corridors) and there will be some congestion, but we’ll attempt to make sure the signals are operating at peak efficiency.” I wanted to thank Mr. Turner for his article and providing me with another opportunity to bring this issue to the attention of the state transportation office, as well as to thank Mr. Hans for his quick response and understanding of the issue and his attention to working to help us all find some relief. When it comes to traffic we all have responsibilities. The city and the state understand
that we need to do whatever is possible to help keep traffic moving smoothly. I would encourage every driver to do the same. Please don’t block intersections to make sure you get through a light. Please, please, please don’t run yellow lights or red lights in your hurry to get home. The few minutes you save when you make that choice will never be worth the risk of injury or death to yourself or others who might just happen to be moving through their green light. And if you have the green light, please make sure that the oncoming traffic has stopped before you start! We want everyone to get home as quickly and safely as possible. Diane Whalen is mayor of Florence.

Redistricting raises concerns about session Week two of the 2012 Legislative Session took a partisan and personal turn as we wrestled with redistricting in the House of Representatives. The House majority introduced their redistricting plan this week, which places at least nine of my fellow colleagues against each other including three incumbents into one district. Redistricting takes Sal Santoro place every 10 COMMUNITY years, and we RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST know and understand that lines sometimes have to be shifted based on the rise and decline of population across our great commonwealth. But for such a plan to be put together in such a way that our members are placed at a great disadvantage is unfortunately the partisan and sometimes personal nature that the path to redistricting takes. How partisan is the plan drawn by the majority? A fellow colleague now finds his mailbox only 100 feet from his door now in another district. It didn’t have to be this way. Our leadership and I stood ready to work side by side with those across the aisle to draft a redistricting plan that would be fair and equitable to all Kentuckians. But now their actions have created a tense and contentious atmosphere and could endanger any work we still need to do to improve our commonwealth. It is my sincere hope that we, as legislators, can find some way to work together. Many regions of Kentucky have suffered for years because of actions taken purely for political reasons, and others will suffer because the person they chose to represent them will no longer be there because of partisanship. Voters select the person who best represents them no matter their political affiliation. I hope that you will keep all of us in your thoughts and prayers for the remainder of the session as we continue our work in the General Assembly. As always, I welcome your comments and concerns for the upcoming session. I can be reached at home at 859-3718840, or through the toll-free message line in Frankfort at 1-800-372-7181.

The Kentucky Symphony Orchestra and University of Kentucky Opera Theatre's 2007 performance of "La Boheme" at Lexington's Singletary Center. The two groups will join forces again for two performances of "Samson and Delilah." The first is set for 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 20, at Florence Baptist Church at Mt. Zion. THANKS TO JIM FAUSZ
KY. SYMPHONY PERFORMING BIBLICAL-BASED OPERA By Stephanie Salmons email@example.com
Sometimes, the things you read in the Bible end up on stage at the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra. The KSO has teamed up with the University of Kentucky Opera Theatre for a complete concert presentation of Camille Saint-Saens’ “Samson and Delilah.” This will be the fifth opera the KSO has done in concert since 2000 and the fourth time collaborating with the Opera Theatre, KSO music director James Cassidy said. The production will be held at 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 20, at Florence Baptist Church at Mt. Zion and will be followed by a performance at 3 p.m. Sun-
day, Jan. 22, at the Singletary Center in Lexington. Tickets are $28 for “A” seats and $23 for “B” seats. Prices for the ”B” seats are reduced to $18 for seniors and $10 for students. Tickets can be purchased by calling 859-431-6216 or by visiting www.kyso.org. “It’s an Old Testament story,” Cassidy said. “To do that at Florence Baptist Church makes some sense.” The operatic version, however, focuses “more on the idea of Delilah trying to get Samson and not all of the things Samson had (done),” he said. It’s an interesting show with some “very pretty music,” Cassidy said. Even though the singing is in French, English translations will be
projected so the audience can follow the story, he said. Bellevue resident and nationally renowned mezzo soprano Stacey Rishoi sings the role of Delilah while tenor Michael Hendrick of Baton Rouge tackles the role Samson. "It’s kind of nice to pull artists together and share that with UK’s talents and put it all together,” Cassidy said. This performance is also a chance for the KSO to do something they haven’t done before, he said. While KSO shows are “always different anyway,” Cassidy says a typical concert will normally have several different selections. An opera, he said, is a continuously sung story.
This production, however, isn’t a fully staged opera, Cassidy said. “When you strip away all the effects and the big lighting and the sets and the costumes, you’re actually focusing more on the music itself – what the composer wrote in that story ... than you are the pageantry of the opera,” he said. According to Cassidy, this is a return to how the piece was first performed in America. It can be said the opera is the “ultimate art form,” bringing in visual arts, acting, singing and dancing, Cassidy said. Whereas, when it’s done as a concert, the audience is listening more and focusing more on the music. “I think this is an interesting way to hear it,” Cassidy said.

Triple Crown Crossfit targets core strength By Patricia A. Scheyer Contributor
WALTON — If your New Year’s resolution is to get fit for 2012, Triple Crown Crossfit is a good place to train, because it targets the core muscles that strengthen the entire body. “What cross fit means is constantly varied functional movement performed at high intensity,” said Jordan Sullivan, one of the owners of the establishment along with Dustin Winterhalt and Damien Tanenbaum. “Having a great core strength supports the
body, makes it perform better, and increases coordination.” Classes are held every day, but when people sign up the workouts are scalable to the individual need, so it is similar to personal training in a group setting. “We offer three free intro sessions to see if people like it,” said Sullivan. “There is a definite camaraderie here, but no cliques, so everybody encourages everybody else.” People are shown how to use the variety of weights and equipment inside the uniquely deco-

Pork that looks as good as it tastes
A couple of weeks ago I was on Ron Wilson’s garden show on the radio and we were talking about cooking and gardening trends. I brought Ron and his executive Rita producer, Heikenfeld Joe Strecker, this pork RITA’S KITCHEN tenderloin. I gave the recipe over the air and it garnered a huge response – I’m still getting requests for it. I thought I’d share it with you since it really is a nice way to prepare pork and looks as good as it tastes.
Peppered bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin Friend and Kentucky reader Carolyn Grieme served us this delicious stuffed tenderloin. Here’s my adaptation: 4 tablespoons butter or olive oil ¾ pound fresh mushrooms, sliced (I used Kroger blend
that readers say is similar except for the cheese, which the restaurant’s does not contain. If you like, leave the cheese out.
with wild mushrooms but button and/or cremini work great, too) 1 cup chopped onion 1 ⁄3 cup chopped pecans, toasted (toast before chopping) Two tenderloins, about 1 pound each, trimmed Salt and pepper to taste (start with a teaspoon of each) 8 slices thick peppered bacon 1 ⁄3 to ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar, dark or light
Preheat oven to 450. Melt butter and add mushrooms, onions and sauté until tender. Stir in nuts and set aside. Butterfly pork by cutting a slit into the middle about 2⁄3 of the way down. It will open like a book. Then pound it out to even thickness and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread mushroom mixture evenly, leaving a bit of a border so the filling doesn’t ooze out too much. Roll up and wrap 4-5 bacon slices around tenderloin. If you like, you can get the pork ready to this stage the morning of
1 15 oz. can creamed corn 1 15 oz. can whole kernel corn, drained 2 large eggs, lightly beaten 1 cup sour cream 1 cup shredded cheddar or Colby cheese 6 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted 1 small box corn muffin mix

(Now if you forget, that’s OK – just remember that it will take longer to bake). Place, seam side down, in roasting pan. Rub evenly with brown sugar and bake uncovered at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 400 and bake about 15 more minutes, or until meat thermometer registers 150. Don’t over bake so that meat stays moist. To toast pecans: Toast in single layer in 350 de-
gree oven just until they smell fragrant, about 6 minutes or so.
Corn pudding No. 1 similar, to City BBQ
For Gary, a Bethel reader, who loves the corn pudding at this restaurant and wants to make it at home. I called the restaurant and they told me their pudding contained basically creamed corn and regular corn, milk, eggs, sour cream and corn meal, among other things. Here’s one from my files
Preheat oven to 350 and butter a 13- by 9-inch pan. Mix everything together well and pour into pan. Bake 45-60 minutes. Let sit 10 minutes before serving.
Five-star classic corn pudding
Check out my blog Cooking with Rita at Cincinnati.com for this heirloom recipe. The texture is a lot lighter than the one above, and it’s a classic.
Sautéed carrots with sage
I first tasted this when daughter-in-law Jessie brought this side dish to dinner. She found it online and everybody loved
them. I made a double recipe of this last night when we were having our neighbors over for dinner. It’s easy, full of good nutrition (did you know sage is good for your mind?) and pretty on the plate. Here’s how I made it:
1 tablespoon each butter and olive oil 3 cups diagonally sliced carrot ¼ cup water Salt and pepper to taste Palmful chopped fresh sage
Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat, add oil and blend. Add carrots and water. Partially cover pan and cook until carrots are crisp tender, about 10 minutes. Add seasonings and increase het to medium high. Cook until carrots are tender and lightly browned, stirring frequently, about 5-10 minutes. Sprinkle with sage and serve. Serves 4-5.

Cold weather can be hard on pets
“Nosey!” I cried, walking into the living room and finding my basset hound chewing a hole in her sweater. “What do you think you are doing?” “What does it look like?” she asked defiantly, pausing for a moment to spit out a clump of red yarn. “I'm acting out, showing my displeasure over being forced to wear clothing.” “Listen Missy,” I said, wrestling the now shredded and slobber soaked garment from her, “You may not like to wear clothes, but I'm the mommy and I know what's best!” Sometimes as a responsible pet owner it can be difficult to know what's best. I know that Nosey has fur and can go outside to do
her business without a sweater to keep her warm, but there are times that that fur coat of hers Marsie Hall could use a Newbold little help if MARSIE’S she's going MENAGERIE out for a long walk. The flannel pajamas I bought for her at Target were just for fun, not for warmth. Just know that cold weather can be as hard on pets as it is on people. Keep your pets safe and warm this winter with these helpful tips! Shelter First, let me say that I am not an advocate of keep-

ing pets outdoors! It seems to me, personally, if you are going to keep a pet, that you want to keep it indoors with you so it can be a “proper” companion. Domestic cats and dogs are not meant to be outdoors pets. Having

said that, I understand that others do not share my opinion. Dogs and cats that sleep outdoors need a snug, dry, draft-free place to sleep. The floor should be raised from the ground to keep cold and moisture away. Ideally the shelter should be heated and have a door to keep the elements out. Bedding should be plentiful; straw is a good insulator. Check it often to make sure it stays dry. If you don't want to invite them indoors during sub-zero temperatures, consider a heated garage or heating a doghouse especially for them. Diet and water Pets need more protein and fat in the winter, especially if they spend time in the cold. Outdoor water bowls need to be checked often as the water can freeze. You can purchase heated dog dishes or even put a tennis or golf ball in the water dish to keep it from freezing. Use plastic dishes in the winter as metal ones can get so cold that their tongues can stick to it, much like poor Flick's did to the flagpole in the movie, “A Christmas Story.” Paws It is important to keep your dog’s paws free of clumps of ice and snow. They can cause injury due to the cold or even cut into your dog’s pads. Salt and chemical de-icers can be irritating as well. If your pet has walked on ground treated with these items, when you get home wash the paws with warm water and dry thoroughly. Check the legs and stomach as well. Always dry your pet’s paws when they come in from out of the snow. You might even want to consider boots for your dog if he/she will tolerate them. Keeping warm If your pet is short haired or very small, you will want to buy him a coat or sweater. Elderly, arthritic dogs will appreciate this as well. Never shave your dog down to the skin in winter, they need the fur for warmth. Our indoor pets are used to central heat and
air conditioning; so if you feel cold, chances are they will as well! Smaller caged pets such as birds have needs, too. Make certain that their cages are kept in a part of the house that is free from drafts. The same spot they sit in during warmer months may not be appropriate in the cooler months, so check! Dangers Antifreeze is toxic to your pet’s kidneys and a tiny bit (as little as1/4 teaspoon can be deadly to a cat or small dog.) It has a sweet taste so make certain to clean up any spills in the driveway or garage right away. There is non-toxic antifreeze. Check the labels when you shop. Many wild animals and outdoor cats seek shelter underneath the hoods of automobiles because the engines stay warm. Knock on the hood of your car on cold days before starting it. More dogs are lost in the winter time when there is snow and ice on the ground,
especially during snowstorms. This happened to my next door neighbor's beloved, elderly dog. The problem is, if they get away from you, finding their way back is difficult because they may be weak to move through the snow/wind and the elements diminish their sense of smell. This is another reason to make sure you dog has tags and/or a microchip. Always make sure this information is up to date and thorough. I have found dogs with collars but no ID tags and ones with vet issued rabies tags, but nothing else Your home should be pet-proofed! Make certain that your pets can’t knock over space heaters, knock candles off of low tables with their tails, or get too close to the fireplace.

struction. She shared a staggering statistic: one in 110 children will be diag-
nosed as autistic. The definition of autism is a developmental brain disorder
that impacts the communication skills and social abilities of affected individuals. This new program was developed at the urging of an autistic Tri-State student, who asked, “Do you think I could join the leadership program and help kids like me?” Tri-State ATA has partnered with Autism 4 Families, a resource organization, to offer classes for autistic individuals who would benefit from personalized attention and structured training. Templeton shared a video showing the students participating in classes, and spoke of their pride in accomplishing a new skill. On Feb. 25, Tri-State ATA Martial Arts Academy and Karate for Kids will host a Winter Tournament at the Holiday Inn Cincinnati Airport in Erlanger. More than 500 competitors will compete for trophies and awards. This is Tri-
