BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS
Flag placement honors vets 2,000 flags placed in Boone County
Legion Boone Post 4, based in Florence. “I started it because I had done some research and realized that in Boone County no one was putting flags on the graves of veterans,” Lude said. “I saw this as an opportunity. Veterans should be recognized for their service. I’m glad to see this program continue and grow.” Now twice a year, around Memorial Day and Veterans Day, the flags are displayed by members of Sons of the American Legion Squadron 4 with the help of many local Boy Scouts. They cover 20 cemeteries and the CVG entrance. “Many troops will come through CVG to visit their homes during these weekends,” Paratchek said. “The first thing they’ll see when they come home are our flags and they’ll know we’re proud of them.” The flags also remind those who see them of the sacrifices

FLORENCE — They’re a symbol of pride, a reminder of sacrifice and, in Boone County, these mini stars and stripes are a beacon of hope. By Memorial Day 2,000 of these mini American flags will be placed on veterans’ graves throughout the county and the entrance of Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. “We do this to honor and respect those who’ve gone before us and served this country,” said Sons of the American Legion Squadron 4 Boone Post member Ken Paratchek. The Flags for Veterans Graves program was started in 2000 by George Lude when he was a member of the American

veterans have made, according to John Jenkins, 10, of Florence Elementary. Jenkins is a junior member, one of the youngest, of Squadron 4. His grandfather served in the Korean War. For the last few years Jenkins has helped place flags at CVG.
He feels tired after the hard work, but is proud to recognize veterans. Without the flags he said, “people might not know how important veterans serving our country is. They (served to) protect all citizens.” According to Norb Lankheit,
Sons of the American Legion Squadron 4 commander, program costs vary each year, but it’s estimated that $500 goes toward the program. That includes replacement of any damaged flags and an appreciation pizza party hosted for the Scouts. American Legion 4 Boone Post covers the cost of the flags, however, donations are always appreciated, he said. Donations can be made to Flags for Veterans by sending a check or money order to S.A.L. Squadron 4, Vets Flag program, P.O. Box 6023, Florence, KY 41042. “We need donations too so we can continue to honor our veterans,” he said. “We want to keep this program going, everything takes money to thrive. I’d hate to think we as a community would ever forget our veterans who gave us our freedom and our way of life.” Tweet @MStewartReports

FLORENCE — Wildcats have been spotted on Houston Road, well Wildcat fans anyway. Florence’s The Kentucky Shop, offering products featuring the marks of University of Kentucky Wildcats, has moved to a new location on Houston Road. “I think the expansion to Houston Road is going to really expose us to the people who didn’t know we were here and all Northern Kentucky UK fans,” owner Jim Ransdell of Florence said. “It’s time to meet those people and have them join the family.” The new location, which opened May 1, is nearly double the size of the former Connector Drive location, Ransdell said. The free-standing mini shopping strip that also includes AT&T and Panda Express is next to Chuy’s, in front of Walmart. The inside of The Kentucky Shop’s portion of the building was custom made for the store. It features that famous blue from top to bottom and is filled with every piece of merchandise that’s fit to print the Wildcats logo upon, including T-shirts, clocks, key chains, jewelry and

Arbor the city and create environmental consciousness. “It’s important that people know that with all the building that’s gone on and all the runoff that you have to come back and plant more trees to sustain nature,” he said. Huddleston’s hope is that when someone sits beneath these recently planted trees, they’ll think about those who planted them and become inspired to do the same. “I can’t think of any better legacy for the city than to plant a tree,” Huddleston said.

designation as a Tree City USA. Florence has received this designation from the National Arbor Day Foundation since 1991. Lindsey attended the event because of her respect and love for nature. “I really think people need to understand how important nature is,” she said. “Nature was here first and we need to make sure it continues to exist. Without it, we can’t live.” Ed Huddleston, chairperson of the Florence Urban Forestry Commission and professed “tree hugger,” said the event is an opportunity to beautify

Ransdell’s favorite part of the new store is the location itself. “We’re just excited to be in the heart of the new retail district and a little more visible on the road,” he said. “I’m also really proud to be (in Florence). I know that the UK fans in Northern Kentucky is an under appreciated market. But there’s as much love for UK up here as there is down there and we know how to tap into that.” The Kentucky Shop opened three years ago in Florence and opened a

second location in the Crestview Hills Town Center last August. The dream for the business originally started with Ransdell’s father-in-law Bill Sharp who operated Touchdown Sportswear inside the Florence Mall from 1989 to 1997. Sharp said he is proud of the success The Kentucky Shop has had. He’s also glad about the new location. “The other destination, you had to be going there to find us,” Sharp said. “Here the amount of traffic that goes up and down Houston Road is unbelievable.

Gather documents for free shred day By Melissa Stewart firstname.lastname@example.org
FLORENCE — Protect your identity, save the environment and help a child. Do all this at the free Smart Shred Day event 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 18, at The Bank of Kentucky, 7900 Tanners Gate Lane, Florence. The second annual event is sponsored by The Bank of Kentucky and Cintas Corp. Taking part in Smart Shred Day and properly disposing of documents containing important personal information can help protect your identity, according to Karen Carnahan, president and chief operating officer of Cintas document management division. “Identity theft is a growing threat for individuals and businesses across the nation,” Carnahan said. “This event will
bring awareness of proper document management to the community and provide them with a secure method to safely dispose information. More importantly, it will provide individuals with the peace of mind that their sensitive information will not end up in the wrong hands.” Mark Exterkamp, executive vice president of The Bank of Kentucky, said the event was such a success last year they decided to hold another. Besides helping to prevent identity theft, he said it also protects the environment. Last year’s event won the Cintas Green Award. “On that day, according to statistics from Cintas, we saved a total of 132 trees, 113,000 gallons of water and 9,800 pounds of solid waste.” The event is open to everyone. Kona Ice will be avail-
able for purchase and 25 percent of proceeds made will be donated to the Family Nurturing Center. The center is a nonprofit social service agency dedicated to ending child abuse. Jane Herms, executive director for the center, said she is grateful for the effort to raise funds. “Prevention of child abuse is a noble cause, but one that cannot be accomplished without every adult taking the responsibility to protect a child,” she said. “Through (this effort) we are able to not only raise funds to support our continuum of services for child abuse treatment, prevention and education, but also promote our shared vision of safe children, thriving families and nurturing communities.” Want to continue the conversation?

Ryle defends 2012 championship By James Weber firstname.lastname@example.org
UNION — Two years ago, Nick Kennedy was a tennis player who was asked to run a sprint relay as a late-season replacement. Now, he’s a six-time regional champion who will go for state titles this week during the Class 3A state track and field meet Saturday, May 18, at the University of Louisville. Kennedy won three regional championships, the100 meters, 200 meters and long jump. He set a track record in the long jump (22-7) along the way and currently possesses school records in all those events plus the 4x200 and sprint relays. He defended 2012 regional titles in all three events. Kennedy barely missed a fourth title on the

day, anchoring the 4x100 relay that finished second to Campbell County by just 0.13 seconds. “We thought (four titles) could happen,” said Ryle coach Russell Harden. “We thought he could get (Campbell) but we still qualified
for state. That counts a whole lot.” Kennedy’s points led the Raiders to the team title as Ryle defended its 2012 championship. In the spring of his sophomore year, Kennedy was playing doubles tennis with one of his best friends, fellow senior Corey Ahern. Kennedy was later recruited in May to fill in for a 4x100 relay race when two of the regulars were busy with graduation. The next season, Ahern, a regional champion and state medalist wrestler, had to focus on that sport and gave up tennis, so Kennedy decided to give track more attention. Ahern played basketball this winter because of knee problems. “They wanted him to wrestle during tennis season and I didn’t want to play without him.” Kennedy said. Kennedy also plays football for See TRACK, Page A8
Ryle tennis meets expectations By Adam Turer email@example.com
UNION — Ryle High School enjoyed one of the deepest boys tennis rosters in Northern Kentucky this season. That depth helped the Raiders to a nearly perfect season. Banding together were 34 young men who posted a 14-2 record. The Raiders could not get past Covington Catholic in the Ninth Region, but enjoyed a very successful season. “I expected our team to grown as tennis players and young men, giving one hundred percent,” said head coach Amy Bates. “They met all expecta-
tions.” Seniors Avery Williams, Adam Rost, Kyle James, and Ethan Smith led the way. The Raiders will graduate nine seniors, but return 25 players next season. Most teams would be lost after graduating that many seniors, but the Raiders have a nice foundation that benefitted from the class of 2013’s leadership and will be back next year to build on this season’s success. “Of the nine seniors graduating, I will miss their positive outlooks, their desire to do their personal best on the court for their team, the examples that they have set for our new players,” said Bates. “Several of
them have been playing on the team since middle school. I've had the pleasure of watching them grow into young men.” Teamwork and selflessness were keys to the Raiders’ success this season. With so many players battling in practice each day and only seven starting varsity spots open for each meet, it took a total team effort to finish 14-2. “I feel like our team really pulled together as a team this season,” said Bates. “They supported each other without prompting. I really hope the team will keep that cohesive attitude, supporting each other on and off the court.”
St. Henry won both the boys and girls team championships in the Class 1A Region 4 meet May 10 at Walton-Verona. The boys team edged Bishop Brossart by two points, 122 to 120, as the Crusaders attempt to defend their overall team championship from last year. St. Henry dominated the girls meet, scoring 201 points to 121 for Newport Central Catholic. Madison Culbertson won the 100 and 200 meters. Sam Hentz won the 1,600 and 3,200 and also won the high jump. Taylor Connett was second in the 800 and 1,600, finishing runnerup to Hentz in the 1,600. Renee Svec was second in the 3,200. St. Henry won the 4x200 and 4x800. St.
Henry was second in the 4x100 relay in girls and the 4x400. Meghan Burke won the 100 hurdles and Celia Eltzroth was second. They finished the same order in the triple jump. Burke was second in the long jump. Laura Felix won the pole vault. In boys, Daniel Wolfer won the 3,200. Craig Aldridge won the high jump. Aldridge was second in long jump. Austin Eibel was second in the 110 hurdles and high jump and won the 300 hurdles. Nick Staub was second in pole vault. St. Henry was second in the 4x400 relay. Walton-Verona’s Madison Peace won the 800 and was second in the high jump. Shelby Mullikin won the long jump. Jon Jones was second in the 100 and the 400. W-V was second in the 4x100 relay and 4x800.
FORMER RAIDER TENNIS PLAYER DIES Unfortunately, the offseason started on a tragic note. Former Raiders tennis player Jonathan Brigham died May 12. Brigham, a 2010 Ryle graduate, was far more than a tennis player. He was also his class’s valedictorian and prom king. Brigham was a pre-med student at the University of Kentucky. He collapsed while jogging on Tuesday, May 7. His loss has hit the entire Raiders community hard. “I was fortunate to have had him in class his sophomore year,” said Bates, who teaches math at Ryle. “He was without a doubt the most orgaBrigham nized student I have ever had the privileged of teaching or coaching.” Brigham was a well-rounded leader at Ryle and carried those same traits with him to UK. At both stops, he was involved in several extracurricular activities, always taking on leadership roles and working tirelessly to better himself and others. “Jonathan was a fabulous young man, the kind that always met you with a smile and a kind word,” said Bates. “He made everyone around him feel special for just knowing him.”

Tell us more about your news interests News has been defined many different ways over the years. Charles Dana, a 19th century American journalist, said famously, “When a dog bites a man, that is not news, but when a man bites a dog that is news.” Former Washington Post Publisher Philip Graham somewhat high-mindedly called news “a first rough draft of history.” A tongue-in-cheek definition sometimes tossed around newsrooms says, “News is whatever happens to or near an editor.” While there may be a grain of truth in that line (we’re human, after all), it turns the way news ought to be regarded squarely on its head. The news we report every day should be a smart mix of information people in our audience want and need. Or put differently, a blend of stories that are most important and
interesting to readers. Striking the right balance is no easy task. It requires us to know the people we serve and have a sound grasp of their shifting news interests and the content – local, state, national and world – they prefer. To gain a better sense of those preferences, we want to hear from more readers and reach out to more groups in Northern Kentucky. We would like to have the chance to speak to organizations or engage with them in whatever way can be useful. Gaining a solid grasp of people’s constantly changing news interests is a challenge in any market, and that’s especially true for The Kentucky Enquirer. While our primary local
news focus will always be on Northern Kentucky, as part of Greater Cincinnati we need to report the news from north of the Ohio River that people here want to read. We offer it all online, but selecting what will fit in the newspaper often requires tough choices. And in covering Northern Kentucky, the task is complicated by the region’s unusually large number of cities and towns. We have to weigh how much attention to give a city council controversy, for example, that may matter a lot to the residents of that particular community but little to the large majority of readers. While our primary goal is learning more about your views of the news we should be reporting, we also will be glad to talk about the ways the news industry has been changing in recent years – both at The Enquirer and nationally. From meeting the growing
demand for digital delivery to the recent switch to our new print edition, the Enquirer is evolving in ways to better serve readers. We can discuss current trends and answer your questions. But most of all, we would like to know more about the news you want and need. Depending on your interests, I hope you will contact me or four other journalists here to get together with your group. They are: » Amanda Van Benschoten, Kentucky Enquirer news columnist (firstname.lastname@example.org). » Josh Pichler, Enquirer columnist on leadership and entrepreneurs (email@example.com). » Richard Skinner, Enquirer sports reporter for Northern Kentucky (firstname.lastname@example.org). » Nancy Daly, senior editor of the weekly Community Recorders, distributed in most of
Campbell, Kenton and Boone counties (email@example.com). Steve Wilson is editor of the Kentucky Enquirer. Reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Medicaid expansion good physically, financially On May 9, I announced what I believe is the most important single decision for the health of Kentuckians in our lifetimes: the expansion of Medicaid coverage to the approximately 308,000 uninsured Kentuckians. This expansion, coupled with the creation of the Health Benefit Exchange under the Affordable Care Act, means that for the first time in Kentucky’s history, every Kentuckian will have access to affordable health care. Who will be covered by this expansion? These are single working men or women with incomes below 138 percent of the Federal Poverty Level – less than $16,000 a year, or families of four making less than $32,500. Contrary to what some might have you believe, these are not individuals waiting for a handout, content to live off of government support. These are people we all know and interact with every day. They live in our communities, they go to our churches and our children attend school with them. They are hardworking individuals and families doing all that they can to pay their bills, put a roof over their heads, food on their tables and
clothes on their backs. Health care coverage is not provided by their employer, individual coverage is Steve Beshear too expensive for them to COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST afford on COLUMNIST their own, but they don’t qualify for Medicaid under the current system. These folks currently do without health insurance, at an alarming cost to themselves and our entire society. Kentucky is one of the least healthy states in the nation. In 2012, Kentucky’s overall health ranking was 44th. Kentucky is at or near the very bottom of many national health rankings. We are 50th in smoking, 40th in obesity, 41st in diabetes, 50th in cancer deaths, 49th in cardiac heart disease, 43rd in high cholesterol and 48th in heart attacks. And the list goes on. A multitude of state and national reports have shown the positive impacts on health status that occur when an individual becomes insured. They are more likely to get
preventive care and seek out medical treatment when they need it. When they do have serious health problems, they are better prepared to deal with them, and the costs of treatment are less. They miss fewer days of work and school. And they live longer and more productive lives. And while my primary concern is for the improved health outcomes that will be possible for many of our citizens through the expansion of Medicaid, my decision was not solely based on the obvious health benefits that extending insurance coverage will provide to the people of Kentucky. It was also based on the far-reaching economic benefits of expanding Medicaid. The federal government will pay 100 percent of the cost of the expansion through 2016 with federal funding gradually decreasing to 90 percent by 2020. The expansion of Medicaid will create nearly 17,000 new jobs for Kentuckians and a $15.6 billion positive economic impact to the commonwealth between 2014 and 2021. In that same time frame, our state budget will see a positive impact of $802.4 million. If we
What to do about spring allergies If allergy testing reveals that a person has tree/spring pollen allergies, there are lots of steps they can take to decrease their symptoms: The first step is to monitor pollen counts. Our practice regularly updates our Facebook page and our website’s blog (http://bit.ly/allergynky) with the latest pollen and mold counts. Keep windows and doors shut at home, and in your car during allergy season. Some cars have an option to recycle air in the car rather than continuously bringing in outside air, and this is a good option to use if you have pollen aller-
gies. Take a shower, wash hair and change clothing after being outdoors working or playing. Wear a high-quality Dr. Marshall mask when Wise doing outdoor COMMUNITY chores like RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST mowing the lawn. Although prescription and over-the-counter medication can be helpful, one of the most effective ways to treat pollen allergies is with allergy in-

jections. These injections slowly introduce an individual’s body to what causes their allergy, so their body learns to tolerate it rather than react with allergy symptoms. A recent article in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology affirmed that allergy injections were not only helpful, but were more helpful than sublingual allergy drops (drops placed under the tongue to relieve allergy symptoms). Dr. Marshall Wise is with Allergy Partners of Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky.
chose not to expand, our budget would see a negative impact of nearly $40 million. Not only is expansion the right thing to do, it’s a savvy financial investment. Finally, the expansion is good news for local and county budgets as well. Not only will the expansion generate additional local taxes, it will ease some of the burden of paying medical costs at county jails. It comes down to this; if a company was willing to invest billions of dollars in Kentucky over the next seven years, creating nearly 17,000 jobs and significantly reducing the uninsured population, while greatly improving the health of our citizens, we would not hesitate to welcome them into our state. Medicaid expansion is no different. Extending coverage to more individuals will improve the physical and financial health of our state and our citizens for generations to come. It is an opportunity we cannot afford to miss and a decision I am proud to make. Steve Beshear is governor of Kentucky.

Great American Cleanup a success
On April 20, Boy Scout Troop 228 participated in the Great American Cleanup. We worked on the riverbanks in Rabbit Hash. We were amazed at the amount of Styrofoam we picked up. We also found a lot of shoes and sandals. There were way too many glass bottles. We filled many garbage bags in the course of three hours. Rabbit Hash is a beautiful community and we need to take better care of it. Anything you throw into a local creek or stream can end up on the banks of or pollute the river.

Beekeeper Carl Knochelmann shows off some of his bees. KAMELLIA SMITH FOR THE COMMUNITY RECORDER
The pleasures of beekeeping A beekeeper shares some tips for healthy bees By Kamellia Soenjoto Smith Recorder Contributor
DGEWOOD — Carl Knochel-
mann lifts the top of his hive and honey bees soon fill the air. “It sounds like a busy airport,” he says. With a device that looks like a skinny teapot he blows white smoke on the bees to help calm them. His hive stands at the corner of his backyard in Edgewood. Those who don’t know would probably mistake it as a dresser with three drawers. Around 30,000 bees live there. “It’s a strong hive,” he says. “There can be as many as 60,000 in the summer.” A bee lands on his arm. “Look, it’s carrying pollen,” he says. The bee stands still as if it wants to show off its hard work. On one of its hind legs is a sac of yellow pollen. “It’s from a dandelion.” This bee is one of the worker bees, infertile females charged with many jobs, ranging from guarding and cleaning the hive to foraging for nectar and pollen. They also feed the queen, the mother of all the other bees in the hive. Male bees are called drones. They do nothing but eat and wait to mate with the queen, after which they immediately die. In recent years there have been reports about a strange phenomenon with honeybees known as Colony Collapse Disorder. More than half of the honeybees in the U.S. died this spring. “No one really knows why,” Knochelmann says, but he suspects it might be caused by issues with pesticides. The European Commission just voted to enact a ban on a class of pesticides thought to be

harming the global bee population. Knochelmann is glad that the mysterious malady didn’t hit his bees. “Knock on wood. I have not had any problems with wax moths or hive beetles either,” he continues. “If you have a strong hive, bees can take care of themselves really well.” He started beekeeping in the 1980s but then stopped for awhile. He’s been at it again for the past 10 years as a member of the Northern Kentucky Beekeepers Association. “I like to treat them organically,” he says, sharing a tip that helps bees clean and groom each other. “Take some granulated sugar and put it in a food processor so you make your own powder sugar.” The next step is to use a shaker to pour the sugar all over the bees. “Make them look like Casper the Ghost,” he says, recalling a character from an old cartoon series. “Sometimes bees won’t check each other out unless they’ve got sugar on them,” he continues. “First, they’ll eat the sugar, which is good, and if there are any mites growing on them, they’ll help pick those things off.” Bees play a vital role in the production of food and fruits. The U.S. Department of Agriculture states that over 80 percent of the world’s flowering plants require a pollinator

to reproduce, including almonds, apples, onions and citrus fruits. And bees are the most efficient pollinator. “It’s amazing what they do,” Knochelmann explains. He enjoys the honey they produce and gives it away to family and friends. But he takes more pleasure in watching how the bees operate. “When it starts getting cold, they crowd around the queen and vibrate
their bodies to generate heat. They want to keep the temperature inside the hive at around 70 degrees.” Another thing that amazes him is how hives can multiply. “Somewhere along the line somebody says ‘hey let’s make another queen and split the hive.’” As many as half the bees can leave the hive in what is called a swarm. “This is the season of bee swarms,” he points out. Last year a bee swarm was found in Taylor Mill. But it wasn’t in a tree, it was on the ground. Knochelmann was called. He brought an empty hive and herded the swarm into it. “If you want to start a hive, a bee swarm can mean free bees for you,” he says. It costs around $80 to buy enough bees to start a hive. For Knochelmann the appeal of beekeeping is simple. “They’re pets that basically feed themselves and take care of themselves,” he laughs.

To be eligible, the Veteran must have at least 90 days of active duty service with at least 1 day beginning or ending during a period of war. Additionally, the Veteran, or their surviving spouse, must require the assistance from another person in performing the activities of daily living such as eating, bathing, dressing, undressing or taking care of the needs of nature.
We believe there are people who:
1. Want plain Bible teaching only 2. Want their children in real classes where the Bible is taught 3. Want to worship to glorify God and not to be entertained.
We pray that you are one of those people.
Space is limited, so please RSVP by calling Home Instead Senior Care at 859-282-8682. CE-0000555886
The special pension can be used to pay for home services to assist the Veteran, or their surviving spouse, with the activities of daily living. There is no place like home, and with this special pension, Veterans and their surviving spouses can stay at home and receive the care they need. The VA typically does not tell eligible Veterans about this special pension. In fact, the VA does little to help Veterans obtain this special pension. If you believe that you may be eligible for this special pension, you need to attend this seminar.
May the Scared Heart of Jesus be adored, glorified, loved and preserved throughout the world now and forever. Sacred Heart of Jesus pray for us. St Jude help of the hopeless pray for us. FS
