Ky. Veterans Hall of Fame launched Nominations sought for first inductees By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

A new Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame will honor people who came back and had a positive impact on their community. Organizers of the private Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame Foundation Inc., are planning to select a first-ever class of up to 20 inductees in November. Nominations are being sought.

“There will be a ceremony where all these people will be invited, and their guests and family will be there to see them receive the medal,” said Gary Griesser, a foundation board member from Burlington. After the first class is determined, there will be a plaque created with the names of recipients. Inductees will receive a plaque and another will be created to be put on public display city buildings or museums for a short time period, Griesser said. Other organizations honor military service accomplishments, but the new Hall of Fame

will be for people who came back and went “above and beyond” in their life after the military to live lives of distinction, said Christo Lassiter, member of the foundation’s executive board for Kentucky and a founder of Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame. Lassiter is a Marine Corps veteran of Operation Desert Storm. Nominees need not be famous, but they do need to have made a positive impact on their community, Lassiter said. “It’s the common man,” he said. “You don’t need a person who has a lot of accolades, it’s the person who is the real deal.”

supplies through the unit’s numerous deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. The city hosted a weekend of activities for the unit, which returned from its most recent deployment in December. The events included a parade Monday. Hundreds lined the route, which started at Boone

County High School and followed Burlington Pike (Ky. 18) to the Florence Government Center on Ewing Boulevard. The parade included local high school bands, scout troops, business owners and 100 members of the city’s adopted military unit, known as “The Renegades.”

Local history highlighted by preservation awards By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

BURLINGTON — Since

1995, Boone County history, and those who work to preserve it, have been honored. This year is no different. The Boone County Historic Preservation Awards are 6-7:30 p.m Thursday, May 30, in the second floor meeting rooms of the Boone County Public Library’s Main library, 1786 Burlington Pike, Burlington. Rural and open space planner Matt Becher, who serves as staff to the Boone County Historic Preservation Review Board, said the board has always encouraged people “to treasure local heritage and wants to honor and recognize those people that do,” whether that’s restoring an old house, doing significant research or volunteering. “The board has always been supportive of those

the love and support they are receiving from all of our community,” Whalen said. “I hope this weekend touched everybody else’s lives the way it touched

kinds of activities,” he said. “This is just a way to say thanks and that your efforts are appreciated and recognized.” Stephen White, of Burlington and his sister, Dr. Donna White, are receiving an award for preservation craftsmanship for the reconstruction of a stone wall at the LeGrand Gaines Farm. Stephen White worked to rebuild the wall – originally built in the late 1800s – that runs about 200 feet along Idlewild Road. His sister owns the property. Over the years, White said the wall had become overgrown with brush and generally dilapidated. “It’s the only one on Idlewild Road,” he said. “To me, it really is a piece of history. And in 1973, when I first got back from the Navy, that was the first thing I saw ... It was a landmark. We used to tell people ‘look for the rock wall.’ I decided it’ll be here long after I’m gone.”

White said it took four months during the spring and summer last year to restore the wall. It’s also the second time he’s rebuilt it – he first did work on the wall back in the 1980s. Cindy and Woodrow Schuster will receive the 2013 Shirley Mann Memorial Heritage Education Award. Woodrow is a muzzle loader, Cindy Schuster said, and the couple, at local festivals, would set up teepees or primitive camps, bringing in items that would have been in such camps, and even dress in period clothing. “During the Great Outdoor Weekend, we have always set up camp, what would be similar to a camp when Mary Ingles was there, when traders were coming through,” Schuster said. These camps would “give you an idea of what things looked like” as well as show children what a

ours.” Weekend activities included a Reds game – during which the unit was honored on the field – a golf outing, softball and basketball tournaments and a Renegade Boot Camp, which featured members of the community.

Capt. Adam Dortona, commander of The Renegades, said the city has been a great partner both this weekend and throughout the unit’s deployments. “The Reds game was wonderful and probably a lifetime experience for some of these guys,” Dortona said. “We love seeing the civilian support and meeting the people who have had our backs for all of these years. It was heartfelt, it was fun, the guys got to let their hair down, and it’s something we’ll never forget.” Amanda and Mike Paedae, both 31, of Dry Ridge, watched the parade and program with their four children, Elizabeth, 10, Trinity, 9, Christian, 3, and Hannah, 1. Amanda Paedae, who home schools the children, viewed the events as a teaching opportunity. “This is a really great opportunity for the kids to come out and see what Memorial Day is really all about and why we celebrate it,” she said. “The kids are really enjoying it.” Capt.

the Renegades and five other units, said the city of Florence represents the American spirit. “They are grateful, they are loving, and they want to express their gratitude to soldiers all over the United States by adopting this unit,” Rondon said. “There are lots of heroes, more than 13, that go beyond the boundaries of what we represent. We just ask that the people keep loving and supporting us, because we will keep protecting you.” The Renegades have

suffered numerous casualties, including 13 soldiers killed in action, since the city adopted the unit. The city recognized each of the fallen soldiers by name and with a plaque during the program that followed the parade. The program, which took place at the Boone County Veterans Memorial, included recognition of veterans of each branch of the military and the laying of wreaths by members of the Northern Kentucky Blue Star Mothers.

Scott Fowler, who was raised in Florence, emceed the ceremony. “What a great day to be a soldier,” Fowler said. “I have always loved this city, but the way the people have come together from this community is amazing. Behind every one of these soldiers is about 50 people who care, and it all starts here.” The program concluded with a 21-gun salute and the sounding of Taps by the Florence Band trumpeters. Dortona said the tribute was a fitting ending to the ceremony. “It’s always important to take time to honor the fallen that have come before us, not just on Memorial Day but every day,” Dortona said. “These guys are true patriots, and we hope that we can continue to carry the torch and bring honor to their name and we know the people of Florence will continue to do that as well.”

McDermond at the helm of Florence police By Melissa Stewart mstewart@nky.com

FLORENCE — John McDermond started his job as chief of the Florence Police Department April 1, but his love for the community started 23 years ago when he first joined the department. “I like this community,”

said McDermond, a Florence resident. “I’ve had the opportunity to go to other places, but I’ve wanted to stay here. It’s the small-town atmosphere and the convenience of the shopping and entertainment. Everything you need can be found here in Florence.” McDermond, originally

from Louisville, has spent his entire law enforcement career in Florence. In fact, he said staying put has been his greatest accomplishment. “A lot of people move around because they think the grass is greener on the other side,” he said. “I always felt like there’s not a better place to go, so why

leave Florence.” Although he’s been with the same department he’s worn many different hats and has moved up the ranks. “John has experienced just about every aspect of the department,” said former chief Tom Szurlinski. McDermond has been in patrol, under cover, a detective, a DARE officer and involved with training, according to Szurlinski. Szurlinski has worked with McDermond since he joined the department. “The thing that will help John the most is he’s a very decisive person,”

Szurlinski said. “I think he’ll do very well, he’s a good person and will make good decisions.” McDermond’s top goals as chief are to continue moving the department forward, keeping up-todate with the latest technology, equipment and training. “I welcome the challenge and responsibility. I look forward to it,” he said. “The chiefs before me have set the standard high. My job is to keep the department moving forward.” McDermond wasn’t always in law enforcement.

the home building business. “(Law enforcement) is something I’ve always been interested in,” he said. It was always in the back of my mind. I came at a point in my life where I told myself, ‘It’s now or never.’ Mayor Diane Whalen said she believes that’s one of the best assets he brings to the chief position. “John started his career later than most and I think that gives him a different perspective on government and public service,” she said. “Sometimes when you enter into a public service job from the beginning you’re not always able to see things from another perspective.” McDermond said he enjoys law enforcement because he likes being the “barrier” between good and bad. “Being that barrier between citizens who do the right thing and the people who don’t,” McDermond said. When out of uniform he enjoys spending time with his family. He and his wife Lori have been married for 29 years and have a son and daughter. McDermond said he’s also been known to hit a golf ball or two. “The thing I like about playing golf is the scenery and your friends,” he said. “It’s a chance to relax, the only thing that matters is the next shot and in that moment you kind of forget about what else is going on.”

Big sister on mission to help cure diabetes By Melissa Stewart mstewart@nky.com

UNION — Ashley Bringer, 11, a fifth-grade student at Longbranch Elementary, is doing all she can to help find a cure for diabetes. She’s involved her teachers and classmates in the mission too. Throughout the month of May Ashley has asked Longbranch teachers and staff to make a donation in order to wear jeans to work. Also, for $2 students, faculty and staff purchased a gray and blue ribbon representing diabetes awareness. The ribbons are hanging in the school’s front windows. The money collected will be donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Ashley is doing this fundraising in honor of her brother Austin Bringer, 7, a first-grade student at Longbranch. “When my brother was diagnosed, I saw how hard it was and I thought I’d do this for him,” she said. Austin was diagnosed with

juvenile or Type I diabetes in 2010, at the age of 4. With the diagnosis came a dramatic life change for Ashely and her family. “Diabetes has changed how we live as a family,” Ashley’s mother Dawn Bringer said. “We want Austin to feel normal and not different so we changed our eating habits and the way we do things with him. It was difficult in the beginning but now it works well for us.” The family has also done fundraising for the American Diabetes Association and other organizations supporting the search for a cure. “Our goal as a family is to help all diabetics get that cure,” Dawn said. Ashley wanted her friends and classmates to take part as well, Dawn said. She held her first small fundraiser last year with the staff of Longbranch and raised about $300 to donate to the Diabetes Center at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. “She has done this on her own with only our encouraging

words,” Dawn said. This year, in addition to the funds she’s raised at school, Ashley plans to donate her own babysitting money to the cause. “There needs to be a cure because diabetes is hard to live with,” Ashley said. The entire Bringer family, father Chris and 10-year-old sister Alana, are all proud of Ashley, especially Austin. He appreciates his big sister’s efforts. “I like it,” he said shyly. Dawn said although the kids have their typical sibling squabbles, they are close. Ashley, she said, has learned how to check Austin’s sugar, calculate carbohydrates and give a dose of insulin. “She is my right hand,” Dawn said. “We cannot express how proud we are of Ashley, she is an amazing kid with a heart of gold. That is just the kind and loving individual she is.” Want to continue the conversation? Tweet @MStewartReports

Consignment sale to raise funds for Stephens By Melissa Stewart mstewart@nky.com

BURLINGTON — Find some treasures or make some treasure while supporting Stephens Elementary this summer at the Stephens Kids Consignment Sale. The school’s parent-teacher association will hold a consignment sale 2-8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 13-15, in the school’s gym. This is a new fundraising effort by the association. “Funds will be used to support family friendly activities at the school, assemblies, performers for our annual Artspalooza Week and technology purchases just to name a few,” association president Julia Pile said. New and gently used all seasons children’s clothing, baby equipment, furniture, room decor, toys, books, CDs, DVDs and educational materials will

be available from more than 20 consignors. Due to safety requirements, no cribs or car seats will be sold. Items will be tagged with bar codes for quick checkout, Pile explained. Consignors will receive 70 percent of their sales; those who volunteer at least one shift will keep 80 percent of their sales. Pile said the PTA is still looking for consignors and volunteers to work shifts. For information on either opportunities, visit www.stephenssale.org. Pile expects the sale to be a hit and hopes it will continue annually. “Most sales are in the spring and fall, so we will be one of the few in the summer,” she said. “We would like to see it grow each year and possibly replace some of our traditional types of fundraisers.” She’s hoping to raise at least $2,000 for the school. “It is a great way to recycle

items, earn some cash or pick up on some bargains. Sellers may also donate items that are not sold,” Pile said. The donated items will be given to Lifeline Ministries to distribute to families in need. Any donation is tax-deductible, Pile said. Kari Matthews, first-grade teacher at Stephens, who serves with the association, said the school is always looking for simple ways to raise money. “Activities like the consignment sale are great because the sellers want to get rid of their stuff and it provides an opportunity for them to do that while Stephens can raise some money,” she said. “The PTA does so much for our school from helping the faculty and staff to providing materials for the students. They are an amazing group of parents.” Want to continue the conversation? Tweet @MStewartReports

Sixteen Eastern Kentucky University ROTC cadets, along with five cadets from the University of the Cumberlands, recently participated in the Mountain Man Memorial March in Gatlinburg, Tenn. Jake Buerger, of Union, was among the group. The 26.2-mile trek through the city and into Smoky Mountains National Park is an event to honor fallen soldiers and their families. Each team carries a gold star flag signed by the family, as well as a photograph and biography of the soldier. The cadets participating in the marathon and half-marathon (running and rucking) spent weeks training before classes, sometimes as early as 3 a.m.

Local students enter honor society

Stephanie Gebka, of Union, recently was initiated into the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi. Gebka is a junior at Morehead State University. Membership in Phi Kappa Phi is by invitation-only to the top 10 percent of seniors and graduate students and 7.5 percent of juniors.

Crigger to present research work

Haley Crigger, a senior at Centre College, will present her work, “Throw Away the Book: A Psychological Survey of Life and Literature through Poetry,” at the college’s annual John C. Young Scholars Symposium April 27. The John C. Young Scholars Program at Centre is a senior honors program that enables a select group of outstanding senior students to engage in independent study and research in their major field or in an interdisciplinary area. Each scholar works closely with a faculty mentor and receives financial support for research and travel. Crigger worked with Dr. Lisa Williams. In addition to the scholars presenting their results at the spring public symposium, their papers will be published in journal form by the college. Selection as a John C. Young Scholar is one of the highest achievements a student can attain at Centre. While the project is overseen by a faculty mentor, the proposed research is generally initiated by the student and the credit goes to the student. Crigger is the daughter of Terry and Cynthia Crigger of Union, and is a graduate of Boone County High School.

Etscheid had a .548 slugging percentage and a .514 on-base percentage and was also onefor-one in stolen base attempts.

ERLANGER — St. Henry District High School is known for dominating cross country in the fall. While those runners are able to move to the longest races during spring track season, they can’t score enough points by themselves to lead a team to the highest overall success. This spring, the distance runners had plenty of help as the Crusaders excelled in every discipline during track season. The Cru had several stars as the girls team rolled to the Class 1A team state championship May 18 in Louisville. St. Henry scored 131 points, which is the highest team score in state history that head coach Tony Harden has seen in his research. “We had a very solid season,” he said. “Starting in indoor, we knew we had a good team coming back and we picked up some new talent. I knew we had the potential. We had a very good regional and scored 201 points, which is the most we’ve ever scored. They really stepped up. They had a great regional and they went down to state and did even better.” Leading the charge was the sprint crew, as St. Henry had possibly its strongest group of all-time, according to Harden. Junior Madison Culbertson stole the show at state, winning the 100 and finishing second in the 200. She ran lead off for the 4x100 and 4x200 relay teams which won state championships, the 4x100 in a 1A state record 49.75 seconds. Culbertson learned from her sister Sully, who graduated last year. “Sully was our main sprinter and Madison had a very solid season for us, and this year she came in and was a workhorse,” Harden said. “She did the little things in practice and did a lot of extra things. She’s the fastest girl to come into St. Henry. Both relays set school records and the other girls contributed. They’re the best sprints I’ve ever coached.” Senior Laura Felix anchored both of those relays and led off the Cru’s state runner-up finishing in the 4x400. She added an individual medal by finishing fourth in the pole vault to end the day with the maximum four. Sophomore Jordan Miller also won four medals, running on three of the relays including two of the victors, and placing fifth in the 200. Junior Lauren Cahill had three relay medals. Holly Blades, Cathy Holt and Tina Felix had one each. Meghan Burke and Celia Eltzroth paced the field events, combining for five of the Crusaders’ 18 individual state medals, not counting relays. Burke was second in the 100-meter hurdles, third in the triple jump and fourth in the long jump. Eltzroth was second in triple jump and third in 100 hurdles. Naturally, the distance crew chipped in plenty of points, led by sophomore Sam Hentz, who won the maximum four medals. Hentz, last fall’s regional champion in cross country, was fourth in the 1,600 and 3,200, then added a rare combination by finishing fifth in high jump. She also ran on St. Henry’s state champion 4x800 relay. Taylor Connett, regional runner-up in cross country and seventh in the state, was third in the 800 and fifth in the 1,600 while anchoring the 4x800. Renee Svec was fifth in the 3,200. St. Henry also had individual medals from Janelle Tobler (eighth in high jump, McKenzie Overwein (sixth in pole vault) and Kathy Munzer (seventh in long jump). “We had two people place in several events,” Harden said. “We had a very well-rounded team. We scored in 14 of the 18 events at the state meet and when you do that, you’re going to place high. This year we really had the jumps and the sprints and everybody did their job.” Out of all the state qualifiers, there are three seniors: Burke, Laura Felix and Overwein.

Water level up at Lake Cumberland It’s May and Kentuckians everywhere are celebrating the return of spring and beautiful weather in the Bluegrass State. Kentucky has much to be proud of, especially when it comes to natural beauty and the outdoors. When travelers from other parts of the United States and other countries visit, they often tell us how lucky we are to live here. I want to call attention to one of those wonderful places in Kentucky: Lake Cumberland. In 2007 the water level was lowered while the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers made important repairs on Wolf Creek Dam. That complicated and challenging engineering work was necessary for public safety. The work included using more than 300,000 cubic yards of concrete to form a barrier wall. Unfortunately, the lower water level hurt tourism in the Lake Cumberland region. The good news is that the repairs to the dam are com-

plete and the water level at Lake Cumberland has been increased by 20 feet for this summer. The Corps plans to return the lake Marcheta to its normal Sparrow level in 2014. COMMUNITY Local tourRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST ism officials report that fishing has been great this spring and that the news of the higher lake level has created a buzz throughout the Midwest boating and angling community. Local businesses are optimistic that tourism will pick up as the lake level goes up. Visitation to this lake plays a major role in the economy for many communities. For many families around Lake Cumberland, tourism dollars put food on the table. The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources will stock 150,000 more walleyes and 150,000 more striped

bass than normal this year at Lake Cumberland. Altogether, the department will add 1 million walleye and striped bass to the lake this year to give fishing a boost. The department also plans to jump-start the trophy trout fishery in the Lake Cumberland tailwater by stocking 10,000 trout larger than 15 inches next winter. Kentucky is blessed when it comes to water and recreation. Kentucky has nearly 90,000 miles of rivers and streams, giving the state more flowing water than any state other than Alaska. There are plenty of beautiful lakes across the state, from Kentucky Lake in the west to Yatesville Lake in the east and Laurel River Lake near London to Taylorsville Lake, just outside of Louisville. The water level at Lake Cumberland isn’t the only thing going up. Gov. Steve Beshear and I are announcing that tourism had an economic impact of more than $12.2 billion in Kentucky in

2012, an increase of 4.4 percent from the previous year. The tourism industry was responsible for 174,000 jobs – 4,078 more than the previous year. Those jobs provided more than $2.7 billion in wages during 2012, an increase of $117 million from 2011. Tourism in the state also provides $1.2 billion in tax revenues, which helps pay for many services for our citizens. I’d like to encourage you to spend some time traveling in Kentucky this year, and hope you’ll consider a getaway to one of our great Kentucky State Parks, many of which are located on a major lake. Whether it’s a houseboat vacation, a camping trip to your favorite fishing spot or a visit to one of our inviting lakeside communities, I hope you will take the time to relax and see for yourself why we say “There is only one Kentucky.” Marcheta Sparrow is secretary of the Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet.

Foundation helps domestic violence survivors Economic abuse is as pervasive as scars and bruises can be in domestic violence relationships. Too often, victims must choose between staying with an abuser and facing economic hardship. Survivors who escape violence may leave with very little: no job, no car, a damaged credit history, or no credit history at all. For this reason, I led a financial education workshop for survivors at the Women’s Crisis Center recently. I was eager to take an opportunity to serve my community with support from the Allstate Foundation. The Allstate Foundation partnered with the National Network to End Domestic Violence in 2005 to create Moving Ahead Through Financial Management, a fi-

nancial empowerment curriculum designed specifically for survivors of violence. Advocates at WCC are using the curriculum to help survivors become economically

self-sufficient. The Allstate Foundation also has supported the economic empowerment services at WCC by funding a matchedsavings program and a creditbuilding micro loan program. At WCC survivors work step by step on a sometimes long and difficult road to healing and self-sufficiency. The program’s services include emer-

gency shelter, individual and group counseling, working with children who witness, and helping survivors to achieve economic empowerment. Individual Development Accounts (IDAs) are at the core of economic empowerment services. Survivors’ savings are matched 4:1 if they choose to save for a first home, postsecondary education, or to start a small business. Survivors’ savings are matched 1:1 if they choose to save for a car. To date, 46 survivors have finished the program at WCC. Their purchases have helped them begin new violence-free lives for themselves and their children. While they are saving, participants are encouraged to use microloans to help them build their credit scores. Their

payments on the no-interest, one-year loans are reported to the credit bureaus, and many survivors have increased their scores substantially (sometimes as quickly as a year) after borrowing the money. All of these services have been made possible with continued support from the Allstate Foundation, which has recognized the innovative strategies used by advocates at WCC. I am honored to represent a company committed to reducing the barriers faced by victims of domestic violence. I’m also honored to live in a place that has resources like WCC, which is making our community a better, safer place to live. Jenni Ballard is an Allstate agent in Florence.

Power of music builds success At Children Inc., our work using the power of music to build social and emotional skills is play for thousands of preschoolers. Over the past 20 years, I have been writing music for children. More recently, my life’s work has been affirmed by developmental research that tells us how music can help teach children key skills for school and life success. Early childhood professionals share the goal that all children, especially the least privileged among us, have an equal chance to succeed in school through quality preschool experiences. As we work with parents and teachers to optimize a child’s development and educational success, we want to maximize exposure to what we know is working. As a result of our local success, I was recently honored to present our work at the 40th annual conference of the National Head Start

In addition to being selected as the musical keynote for the closing general session, breakout sessions earlier in the conference featured music and supportive materials on hope, optimism, kindness, thankfulness, curiosity, mindfulness, acceptance, empathy and responsibility. It might be hard to imagine how we teach such valuable concepts in preschool – through the power of words and music. Songs written in the voice of the child be-

come fun and effective ways to make sure positive messages about one’s self, others and world are imprinted on the heart and mind. As I sang “I Can Do It,” “I Can Count on You” and “I Can Settle Down” at the closing session, I saw many new friends from the earlier sessions singing along. From Hawaii to Maine, from Alaska to Puerto Rico, we all want the same thing – that our children, all of our children, stand on the same level ground, academically, socially and emotionally, the day they enter kindergarten. What we have been doing here at Children Inc. for decades is now being heard, through singing, around the nation and around the world.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Kicking the can down the road

They are at it again. The Kentucky legislators are kicking the can down the street one more time, not paying their bills on time. I was outraged this week when I learned the Kentucky Personnel Secretary sent an email to state government employees telling them their paychecks due on June 30, 2013, will be held over til July 1. Now don’t get me wrong, a one-day delay is no big deal in the grand scheme of things. But what it does is allow the state to end the fiscal year with a larger cash balance so the governor and legislators can run around telling people what a great job they are doing. All they are really doing is trying to pull another one over on the people of Kentucky. In his multi-page diatribe the personnel secretary was quick to point the finger of blame, saying the legislature “mandated the delay.” But you can bet the governor and his minions will all be bragging how much money they had left in the bank at the end of the year. Frankfort has become a city of one scam on the people after another. It is also worth noting the memo tells employees if they need to borrow money to make it to payday they can contact the Commonwealth Credit Union, among others. I wonder how many people understand that the employees of Commonwealth Credit Union are among the “quasi governmental” agencies whose employees are part of the nearly bankrupt state retirement system? Does anyone really believe the employees of the credit union, a federally insured financial institution, chartered by the Kentucky Department of Banking just like any other bank, are public employees and should be part of the state system?

Corn bread and detox bath – both make you feel good

Rita says her broccoli salad is always the first to go on buffet tables. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Follow package directions for each box. Place all ingredients in one bowl and blend. Pour into a greased 8-inch round or square pan and bake 25 minutes, until golden brown.

Cornbread from scratch

Check out my Cooking with Rita blog for this recipe. Go to Cincinnati.Com/blogs.

Buffet broccoli salad

Broccoli was on sale at the grocery and I had a craving for this salad. It’s not low fat or low sugar, but it’s always the first to go on the buffet table. Salad Mix together: 1 large head of broccoli, cut into florets (if stems are tender, use them, too, sliced thinly) Generous 1⁄2 cup chopped red onion 2 cups shredded cheddar

cheese ⁄2 pound bacon, cut up and sautéed

1

Dressing Whisk together: 1 cup mayonnaise 1 ⁄2 cup sugar 1 ⁄4 cup red wine vinegar or more to taste (I usually add more)

Pour dressing over salad ingredients. Toss well. When serving, dig deep so that you get all the goodies that tend to fall to the bottom.

When I put in requests for recipes, I usually just put them in once, maybe twice. If I don’t get a response from you or have nothing in my files, I go on to the next request. But this one from Mark Burnhimer has Rita touched Heikenfeld my heart RITA’S KITCHEN in a way that I am asking, once again, if any of you can help. Mark told me: “After a minor health issue, my caregiver had shared with me that he and his wife really missed Zino’s and that he would be eternally happy if someone had some of the old restaurant recipes, including the Zino Burger. Have you got anything that might resemble that in your file? I’d like to pay back someone for the excellent care I received while I was not at my best.” Mark has continued to follow up, asking if I’ve received anything. So if any of you can come even close, or can get the recipe, do let me know.

A guitarist from King Crimson. The owner of an allegedly haunted country music nightclub. The man who wrote “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” What do these people have in common? They are a part of Northern Kentucky’s rich musical heritage that will be showcased at Behringer-Crawford Museum’s exhibit “Northern Kentucky Music Legends” opening June 2. “Northern Kentucky Music Legends” highlights artists from Northern Kentucky – including Kenny Price of Florence – who have spent more than 20 years sharing their love of music with the public. Some have become internationally known, while others have made their impact locally. This exhibit celebrates the people and places that continue to cultivate the region’s profound connection with

How to keep your kitchen cool www.florenceumc.com/summer

As the temperatures rise outside it is best to not add an additional cooling load inside our homes when possible. Consider the following to help keep your air conditioners from working overtime this summer. Cook and bake in the early morning or late evening hours.

Use the microwave when possible. Choose to use a toaster oven if possible instead of heating up the larger oven and thereby a larger space. Use the dishwasher in the early morning or late evening. When using the dishwasher avoid using the drying cycle.
