BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Watson’s latest new store Morris home store, Verizon also opening By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

FLORENCE — Retail construction and renovation is under way in Florence. This year Florence will see the opening of a Watson’s superstore, Morris Home Furnishings, a new Verizon Wireless store and others. “These are all excellent redevelopment projects,” said Josh Wice, Florence’s business/community development director. The Watson’s will be on Houston Road in the former Ethan Allen furniture store. Watson’s currently has an accessory outlet on Mall Road, but the new store will offer much more,

Wice said. Watson’s sells pools, pool supplies and equipment along with indoor entertainment. “They will have the space to offer a full-service store with everything Watson’s offers,” he said. The Verizon Wireless store is being built in the old Lonestar steakhouse lot on Mall Road. The new store will replace its current store across the street,

and that building will be open for lease. Morris Furniture is currently renovating the old Kmart building on Burlington Pike. Having a company that’s new to the area invest a significant

Freedom looking for host families

Players need ‘home away from home’ By Justin B. Duke

FLORENCE — A group of athletes are looking for a home away from home. The Florence Freedom is currently seeking host families for its players this season. “These players come from all over,” said Shirley Brown, who coordinates the host family program. Freedom players aren’t paid a lot of money and when they get to Florence, they stay with families who open their homes, Brown said. Potential hosts are often worried they can’t provide for players for a season, but the requirements are simple, she said. “We don’t require them to be fed,” Brown said. Host families are only asked to provide players with a bedroom and access to laundry and a bathroom. “It’s not a huge disruption to the family,” said host Roseanna Koehler. Koehler has opened her home to players since the Freedom came to Florence. “My kids enjoy having the players around,” Koehler said. While the agreement doesn’t require much personal interaction, lifelong friendships are often formed, Brown said. “We’ve gone to three weddings (of former players),” she said. Players’ parents often come into town to see their

amount of money in an existing building is an encouraging sign for Florence’s retail development, Wice said. “It will be very complemenSee WATSON’S, Page A2

The city of Union collected items for the victims of the March 2 tornado on March 10. Collections began at 9 a.m. and by noon, at least $500 had been collected for relief funds along with a plethora of necessities. City events coordinator Karen Franxman said March 10 that she expected to have at least two pickup truck loads full of goods that were to be donated to the communities of Butler, Peach Grove and Crittenden.

Help arrives to clean up Piner

Adopt-a-Highway ready to clean area Community Recorder

Volunteers will be out in force next week to spring clean Boone County’s highways. Adopt-a-Highway Spring Clean Week will be March 18-24. “The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet appreciates the efforts of our Adopt-a-Highway volunteers who help keep our highways and communities beautiful and litter-free,” Transportation Secretary Mike Hancock said. Nearly 800 groups participate in Kentucky's Adopt-a-Highway program, which was established in 1988. Volunteers clean approximately 5,100 miles of roadside annually. Each year, the KYTC spends about $5 million and 200,000 worker hours to remove 96,000 bags of highway litter. Any permanently established business, association, community or public organization, or government entity can adopt a stretch of highway. Volunteers adopt two-mile sections of highway under a twoyear, renewable contract with the Transpor-

MORNING VIEW — Like hundreds of other volunteers on Saturday, March 10, Wanda and Steve Arey of Florence took a shuttle bus from Simon Kenton High School to Piner Baptist Church. There they checked in and received instructions on how to help clean up the area affected by the March 2 tornado. “We’re here to help people who were unfortunate to be hit by this tornado,” Steve Arey said as he and his wife waited for the next shuttle to Piner. “We’re here to replenish other people who’ve been working here all morning.” Wanda Arey said they wanted to help because fellow employees at St. Elizabeth Healthcare were affected. In the south Kenton County area, four people were killed and 88 homes demolished by the March 2 tornado. “We’re going to be picking up a lot of debris, a lot of glass,” said Wanda Arey, a medical technologist. “If there’s any memorabilia for people we’re going to try to salvage that and restore a semblance of their family history.” As they boarded the shuttle, BJ Donahue, associate pastor at the Piner

Groups interested in becoming members of the Adopt-a-Highway program can find details and district coordinator information at adopt-a-highway.ky.gov . Safety guidelines are provided to volunteers and should be reviewed prior to each cleanup.

Boone Schools names chief academic officer By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

Boone County Schools has a new academic leader. The district promoted Karen Cheser to chief academic officer/deputy superintendent. Cheser currently serves as the district’s assistant superintendent for learning support services, a position she’s held since 2009. Cheser will take over the position for Pat Murray, who is retiring at the end of the school year. Cheser will start in her new position July 1. Cheser lives in Union and has sons at New Haven Elementary

and Gray Middle School. Before joining Boone County Schools in 2007, Cheser served in several education roles in Cheser Boone and Kenton counties. In her new position, Cheser will serve as “the eyes and ears of the superintendent,” Cheser said. “I’ll help all the departments work together,” she said. In her current role, Cheser oversees a lot of policy and works a lot with setting curriculum, tasks that keep her in the of-

fice more often than not. “I’m looking forward to having time in schools,” Cheser said. As the chief academic officer, Cheser will get to build strong relationships with principals and be around students more than her current job ever allowed, she said. Of course, the new position comes with its pressures. Being chief academic officer of a district with almost 20,000 students is not something to take lightly, Cheser said. “There’s a lot of responsibility,” she said.

Brady puts Cooper on state radar Swimmer brings 1st state title to school By Adam Turer presspreps@gmail.com

UNION — Although she is just a sophomore, Sharli Brady has already cemented her legacy at Cooper High School. On Saturday, Feb. 25, Brady became the first Cooper swimmer to win a state championship. The Jaguars program is only 4 years old, but Brady will forever be the first state champion in program history. “It is cool to think about,” Brady said. “I just wanted to go in to state and represent Cooper well.” Brady started swimming competitively at age eight and swims year-round for the Northern Ken-

tucky Clippers club team. She swam for Cooper in seventh and eighth grade, but attended Notre Dame Academy last year and swam just part of the season for the Pandas. She returned to Cooper this year to swim for head coach Lisa Harkrader. “She is a really great coach,” Brady said. “She focuses on every kid every day, not just a select few.” Brady earned first-team, allstate honors after winning the 500yard freestyle and 200-yard individual medley. She led the Jaguars to a 10th-place team finish. She set a state record with her 500-yard freestyle time of 4:47.56. “I knew going in that they would be pretty close races,” she said. “I try to pick events that I think I’ll do well in.” Her best events are not offered

She said her best swim to date was her 400 IM at the USA Junior National Championships in August in California. Her time of 4:53.1qualified her for this summer’s Olympic Trials in

Omaha, Neb. Cooper’s 400-yard freestyle relay team of Brady, Brooke Harkrader, Kandis Arlinghaus, and Samantha Bosshammer missed qualifying for the state final by 1.26 seconds, placing ninth in the preliminary race. Cooper also had a relay team in the 200-yard free-

style relay. In addition to Brady, Arlinghaus and Bosshammer each competed in individual events. “I feel like our girls really helped raise the profile of the Cooper program this year,” said Brady.“Theteamsizekeepsgrowing each year and it gives more kids the opportunity to swim.” Brady practices with the Clippers and several of her club teammates also qualified for the state highschoolmeet.Bradyleavesfor Florida soon for a short course competition and is gearing up for the Olympic Trials in Omaha June 25-July 2. With her first two Kentucky state championships out of the way, Brady remains motivated to add more next year. Said Brady, “I would like to repeat, but I know that I can’t just expect it to happen.”

BOONE COUNTY LOSES IN OT Moss scores 41 pts. in Sweet 16 game By James Weber jweber@nky.com

BOWLING GREEN — If anyone could change Northern Kentucky’s luck in the Kentucky girls basketball state tournament, it was Sydney Moss. But not even the Boone County High School senior superstar could rescue the Rebels from the bad bounces and crazy calamities that handcuff hoops teams in Bowling Green. Boone lost 72-70 in overtime to Lexington Dunbar in the first round of the Houchens/KHSAA Sweet 16 at Western Kentucky University’s Diddle Arena. Boone ended the season 30-4 in its third state appearance in four years. Dunbar, making its first state appearance since 1997, took a 29-6 record into the next round. Northern Kentucky remains without a state girls title and no area team has made the semifinals since 2002. The last three Ninth Region losses have come in OT. “Congratulations to Dunbar,” said Boone head coach Nell Fookes. “They played a great game and really hit their free throws down the stretch. We had a chance to win in regulation and we didn’t make enough plays, but that’s the game of basketball.” Three days after scoring the winning basket in an overtime victory over Notre Dame to win the regional title, Moss was at the top of her game in the state tourney. She scored 41 points on 20-of-38 shooting. The 41 is the third-most by any player in girls Sweet 16 history and left her with 2,996 points for her varsity career. The University of Florida recruit is the frontrunner for Miss Basketball, which would make her the first Northern Kentuckian to win it since Holmes’ Erica Hallman in 2002. “We all played well as a team

Both players scored three baskets in the final minute of regulation, with Moss giving the Rebels a two-point lead and Fender responding quickly each time with a tough, off-balance floater in the lane. Then, Moss nearly won the game with a 60-foot shot at the buzzer. “We mess around in practice a lot and shoot those half-court shots before we leave,” Moss

said. “I thought it was going in.” “We knew Moss was one of the best kids in the state of Kentucky,” said Dunbar head coach

Sarah Van Horn. “We told them one girl can’t outscore us all, so that was the plan: Let her get hers and we as a team will score enough to outscore them. You don’t like to give up 41 to anybody but the plan was to lock down every other player on the team.” Fender, who had 21 points, 17 after halftime, guarded Moss most of the time as Dunbar’s post players stayed on Boone’s bigs. Listing herself at 5-foot-2, 105 pounds, Fender gave up nine inches to Moss. “As big as she is and as strong as she is, I was a little scared at first,” Fender said. “I knew I had to step up and fight as much as I could. I had to make Sydney work for her points.”

Dunbar took control in OT when junior guard Kierra Muhammad, Dunbar’s third-leading scorer who had one point in regulation, scored the first four points of the extra session. Dunbar went 9-of-10 from the foul line after that, and Moss’ final points were a three-pointer at the buzzer for the final margin. Moss had 13 points and four assists. In a game with no need for a shot clock, both teams ran upanddownthefloorandmoved the ball well in transition. Boone outrebounded Dunbar by 18 but only shot six free throws. “Our girls lost sight of what they had to do defensively at times,” Fookes said. “That could have been kids playing in their first state tournament. We didn’t get enough times going to the lineandthat’ssomethingwenormally do. They hurt us in transition and penetration off the ball.” Senior Lydia Nash had 11 points and seven rebounds for Boone. Senior Zuri Hill had six points and 15 rebounds. Junior guard Jessica Jones had six points and four boards. Alexis Switzer, Elizabeth Switzer and Kathleen Murphy had a bucket apiece. “I love seniors who can stay with me for four years,” Fookes said. “That says a lot for their perseverance and their love for the game of basketball. These girls have really been special.” Moss, who started varsity as a seventh-grader at Heritage Academy, will leave a legacy for the Rebels. “It’s been one of those things, they really capitalized on Sydney being in our program,” Fookes said. “Syd is the type of player, she’s very unselfish. She’s humble, she shares the ball, she steps up and makes good plays. Going into today, she was 44 points shy of 3,000 and she does it by averaging four or five assists a game as well. She has been the cornerstone of what we’ve done and our other players have fed off that.”

Bearcats battle until the end in Sweet 16 loss By James Weber jweber@nky.com

BOWLING GREEN — By the luck of the draw, or the bad luck of the draw, the Walton-Verona High School girls basketball team had to play one of the best teams in the state right away in

the Sweet 16. The Bearcats made the most of it but fell 56-49 to Marion County March 8 in the first round of the Houchens Industries/KHSAA Sweet 16 at Western Kentucky University’s Diddle Arena. W-V finished 29-7 in its second trip in a row to the state tourney. Marion,

34-5, was state runner-up. “We battled. We just came up a little short,” said W-V head coach Mark Clinkenbeard. “A couple of plays we didn’t make when we needed to. It’s been an incredible season. I told them to walk out with your heads high. We have a real good team. We played a real

good team. They were just a little better than us today.” The Knights, ranked No. 2 in the state going in, had three Division I commitments in senior guard Bre Elder (Dayton), junior guard Makayla Epps (Louisville) and junior forward Kyvin Goodin-Rogers (Louisville).

The Bearcats, who won the All “A” state championship a month ago and were 2-1 this season against other teams that made the Sweet 16, were not intimidated. They trailed 23-20 at the half, limiting Marion to just 25 percent See BEARCATS, Page A9

shooting from the field (7of-28). Marion coach Trent Milby said he wasn’t thrilled with how his team played on offense in the first half, with the Bearcats’ defense making them settle for jumpers. After halftime adjustments, the Knights came out in the third quarter on an 8-2 run, with all the baskets scored by the three future D-I players. Walton trailed 31-22 at that point. The Bearcats responded, with center Michele Judy scoring three baskets in a span of 79 seconds. Forward Courtney Sandlin hit two free throws to make it a 31-30 game and complete an 8-0 run. Judy would score another basket later in the quarter, which ended with W-V down three at 37-34. “I had a terrible first half,” Judy said. “Everybody expected us to get blown out against them, so to be down by three, we still had a chance. I’ve played pretty much my whole life with all these seniors. Nobody wanted it to end. You go out there and you play for them, you play for the community who comes out and supports you, you play for your school.” Marion came out of the blocks well in the fourth. Epps hit a 3-pointer on the Knights’ first possession, sparking a 9-1 run to give Marion an 11-point lead (46-35) with 4:43 to play. The Bearcats kept battling, going on a 10-2 run. Sandlin scored four of the points, and two free throws by Lizzie Hoffa

Keep in mind the budget is a process

Before the March 2 tornado, the Imhoffs of Piner had completely renovated their home at Ky. 17 and Paxton Road. It was destroyed by the tornado in southern Kenton County. NANCY DALY/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

Banding together to help Kentucky after tornadoes It has been a little more than a week since a massive tornado outbreak struck Kentucky and neighboring states. While it was heartbreaking to watch the storms come through and the damage left behind, it has been heartwarming to know that neighbors and good Samaritans have banded together under clearer skies to respond with a helping hand. Organizations and individuals have responded with financial assistance as well. Many of our neighbors have donated to the relief efforts through local nonprofits and the American Red Cross. Toyota, Ford, Xerox, the United Way of Greater Cincinnati, and other organizations have all pledged generous contributions for the relief efforts. This financial aid supplements federal resources requested by Gov. Steve Beshear and supported by the Kentucky congressional delegation. In Independence, Twenhofel Middle School opened its doors to donations for the victims of an EF-4 tornado that touched down in nearby Piner. Within mere hours of advertising the drive, clothing tightly packed

yards-long coat racks, and tables became mountains of clothes, toiletries and food. The school’s principal deGeoff scribed the Davis outpouring as “overwhelmCOMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST ing.” COLUMNIST Another example of the outpouring of good will was in Fleming County when neighbors rushed to offer clothing and toys to a family whose mobile home was all but destroyed in the storms. Volunteers have operated shelters from Bedford to Dry Ridge to our neighbors in West Liberty in the Sixth District, where the town suffered devastation. The Tide “Loads of Hope” mobile laundry program, which first began in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, has come to the commonwealth to wash items for local residents. And there’s the entrepreneurial work of Lisa Raterman, who helped start the Facebook group “Coordination of help for NKY victims of

A publication of

3.2.12 tornado” almost immediately. She used this page to begin recruiting, coordinating and focusing local assistance and relief efforts in our communities. All of these efforts have been crucial and they inspire us to keep helping. Kentucky Emergency Management has a page with information on relief agencies and a form to sign up for donations and volunteering. Additionally, the Red Cross is continuing to take financial contributions for the Kentucky Cares Campaign. Simply text “REDCROSS” to the number 90999 or visit http://www.redcross.org to give to the Disaster Relief Fund. The path to recovery is just beginning. We have seen disasters strike before, but one thing has remained constant: our will to rise and rebuild. This will hold true again, as Kentucky rallies around the common cause to emerge from this tragedy a stronger and tighter commonwealth. U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis, R-Hebron, is a member of the House of Representatives.

Greetings from Frankfort! We arrived last Monday with heavy hearts, several legislators describing parts of their home communities devastated by storms, some friends and towns gone forever. We shared our prayers and support knowing Kentuckians are strong and resilient folk, committed to rebuild if at all possible. On March 7, the House passed the two-year budget by a vote of 78-17. Addia Folks, I was Wuchner one of the 17 COMMUNITY “no” votes RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST and will explain why later in this article. Keep in mind the budget is a process. The governor proposes, the House of Representatives then spends weeks reviewing his budget proposal. We have seven budget sub-committees, consisting of approximately 75 House members reviewing the subsections, and listening to hours of public testimony. Then the Appropriations and Revenue Committee reviews and rewrites the budget, which then comes to the House for a vote. Next, the process continues as it moves on to the Senate, the Senate changes it and votes, then it comes back to the House at which time no one usually agrees and we then have to go to conference committee to hammer out the final budget. It is a process, and often not a pretty one. I had several concerns with the House proposed budget, and the revenue bill, House Bill 499, that accompanied the budget bill. The debt ratio, the structural imbalances, and the rush to vote. In recent years, we have stressed the need for transparency and providing time for the voting members and the public to review the budget. It is too important to Kentucky and her people to vote on a $19.5 billion dollar

budget when we are only given a few hours to review the complex 297 pages of budget language before casting that vote. The people of Kentucky deserve good government. On the matter of debt ratio, I recently joined many of my caucus members in sending a letter to the chairman of the House Appropriations and Revenue Committee asking him to hold a hearing and vote on Senate Bill 1, which passed the Senate 34-2 last month. Senate Bill 1 is sound fiscal policy and essentially would limit the general fund debt service not exceed 6 percent. Even with all the reductions, the debt ratio in the proposed House budget was 6.71 percent. It is critical that we bring Kentucky in line to live with our means, as we cannot continue to spend more than the revenue we take in. The budget that passed the House did implement across-the-board cuts of 8.4 percent in all three branches of government. Higher education, which is our state’s public universities, is receiving a budget cut of 6.4 percent. The SEEK formula for local school funding does not incur the cuts above and maintains their current 2012 funding level for 2013-2014 school year. But in essence, growth districts like Boone and Walton-Verona would experience some reduction when there is the same amount of money, but more students to serve. We have taken several budget cuts the last few sessions, but like the citizens we serve, Kentucky government is learning to rework priorities and live within our means. Again, please keep in mind the budget is a process and there are several more votes to be made before finally passage. As always, I welcome your comments and concerns for the upcoming session. State Rep. Addia Wuchner, RBurlington, is a member of the Kentucky House of Representatives.

Roll the dice for a good cause at Charity Night at the Tables. THANKS TO SHERRY PINSON

Casino games help charities By Justin B. Duke

jbduke@nky.com

FLORENCE — Chips, craps and charities are returning for a Northern Kentucky tradition. Charity Night at the Tables returns for its 11th year. This year’s event will be from 7 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Saturday, March 17, at Turfway Park. The night features a Monte Carlo style mock casino full of games like poker, blackjack, craps and roulette. “It’s a great event,” said Jack Gordon, director of sales and marketing for Turfway Park. The evening costs $75 and includes a buffet, unlimited wine, beer and soft drinks and chips for the gaming tables. “We’ve got a very delicious spread of food,” Gordon said. About 95 percent of the dealers at the game tables are volunteers from the business community, he said. “It might be your insurance agent, it could be your doctor or your banker dealing cards,” Gordon said. Throughout the night, guests

will gamble their chips and at the end of the night, they will dump their chips into a pot for their choice of four charities. This year’s charities are: » Boone County CASA » The Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center » New Perceptions » Parish Kitchen The charity with the most chips at the end of the night gets first choice of a horse racing in the Vinery Racing Spiral Stakes March 24. The second highest chip earner gets second pick, and so on. The charity whose horse places highest in the race gets $10,000. Second place gets $6,000, and the other two charities get $4,000. “It ties into the Spiral Stakes, which is so important to the region,” Gordon said.

New leadership

For its first 10 years, Charity Night at the Tables was organized by the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, but this year, Turfway Park has taken on that role.

“Turfway didn’t want to see it fall by the wayside,” Gordon said. The transition of leadership has been a smooth one, said Brenda Sparks, president of The Yearlings. The Yearlings are longtime sponsors of the event and are title sponsors this year. “Turfway has been great,” Sparks said. Turfway’s love of the event has been obvious in the planning stages, she said. “I think they’re really giving 110 percent this year,” Sparks said. Seeing how much care they’ve put in this year, Sparks is confident Charity Night at the Tables will remain a Northern Kentucky tradition under Turfway Park’s leadership. “As hard as everybody’s working, I think it will stay around,” Sparks said. Tickets for Charity Night at the Tables are available at www.turfway.com or by calling 859-371-0200. For more about your community, visit www.NKY.com/florence

Smith calls Miley her “Tasmanian devil,” she said, because sometimes, “it’s like she gets a shot of adrenaline,” and will run around and even throw her toys. “All you can do is stand there and watch her,” she said. Miley has “cute ways about

her,” Smith said. She “almost hops like a bunny sometimes,” going from room to room and when she’s happy, Miley will pull the corner of her lip up, Smith said. “She is so funny,” Smith said. “She makes us laugh every day.” “Me & My Pet” is an occasional feature in the Community Recorder.

Cream horn recipe offers different filling choices Life here on our little patch of heaven is never boring. We were splitting logs yesterday when I spied something hanging loosely curled in between two rows of wood. I was stacking more wood next to those rows and there it was: a snake. In less than 3 seconds, I shrieked, threw the wood from Rita my arms Heikenfeld onto the RITA’S KITCHEN ground and bolted. My husband, Frank, who couldn’t hear the shriek over the wood splitter but did see me bolt, asked what was wrong. I pointed to the snake. He laughed – it wasn’t a snake at all but simply the skin. Made no difference to me. I can tolerate a lot of God’s creatures, but the snake or its skin is not one of them.

Turfway hosts Charity Night

BUSINESS UPDATE Lauret Hearing Care owner attends expo

By Pat Moynahan Contributor

FLORENCE — Turfway Park will turn the VIP tent for the Vinery Racing Spiral Stakes into a gambling casino on Saturday, March 17, for the 11th annual Charity Night at the Tables. No, the Kentucky General Assembly has not passed legislation legalizing casinos. It’s a mock casino and the gamblers will be betting with play money. Proceeds from the event will go to four Northern Kentucky charities. “It’s just for fun, but a lot of charities have benefited over the years,” Jack Gordon, director of marketing at Turfway Park, told members of the Florence Rotary Club at a meeting on March 5. Price of a ticket is $75 and will include drinks, a buffet and chips for the gaming tables. The tables will be open from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Live entertainment will be provided by My Sister Sarah. Boone County CASA, New Perceptions, the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center and the Parish Kitchen will benefit from this year’s

Lauret Hearing Care Center owner/operator, Terry Lauret, attended Starkey Hearing Technologies’ first Hearing Innovation Expo Jan. 4-7 at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas in Las Vegas. The three-day expo featured an array of world-renowned speakers and offered more than 45 courses with topics ranging from innovation, technology and trends powering the baby boomers to entrepreneurship and philanthropy. The Lauret Hearing Care Center is located in Florence.

Jack Gordon of Turfway Park addresses the Florence Rotary Club. THANKS TO ADAM HOWARD event. Gordon said all the proceeds will go to the charities. Each guest will receive a bag of chips for the gaming tables. Participants will drop their “winnings” – chips they collect – into a pot for the charity of their choice. The charity with the most chips at the end of the evening will get first pick of the horses running in the Spiral Stakes on March 24 at Turfway Park. Each of the other charities will select a horse in descending order of winnings. The charity whose horse

crosses the wire first in the Spiral Stakes will win $10,000. The charity whose horse finishes next best will collect $6,000 and the remaining two charities will receive $4,000 each. The Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce started Charity Night at the Tables more than a decade ago. The event has raised more than $321,000 over the years, according to Gordon. Turfway Park picked up the event this year. Gordon said they hope to be able to help eight to 10 charities

each year in the future.

Good time to review emergency plans With the recent storms on our minds, many communities and families will be cleaning up and recovering for some time. However, this can be a good time for families to review their emergency plans. Where will you go to take shelter? What is needed in that space to allow you to spend an extended period of time there? Diane Where Mason will your EXTENSION family NOTES members meet when the emergency is over? Do you have someone in another town or state you can all call to report your status? It is important to know the answers to these questions and more. Visit www.ready.gov for complete information on being prepared. There are many items you’ll need or want in case of an emergency, but the following should get you started. Water. Water is critical to survival.

ularly will help you survive a disaster. It is recommended that families have one gallon of water per person per day to last at least three days. A home emergency kit. The kit should include non-perishable foods, blanket, tarp, clothes and sturdy shoes for each member of the family, and other items that will be useful for home emergencies. All batteries, food and water should be rotated on a regular basis. Weather radio with back-up batteries or power source. The alerts let you know if severe weather is in the area. The information will let you make wise decisions that can affect the safety and health of your family and loved ones. Flashlight with spare batteries. Nothing is worse than being in a dark basement in a storm or trying to find your way out without light. First aid kit. A wellstocked first aid kit will help you treat injuries that may occur. Practice your home evacuation plan and shelter-in-place plans so everyone knows what they are doing and what to expect. You never know when an emergency might happen. It is best to be prepared.
