Formal consignment shop opens By Justin B. Duke

dinner dances. “If I have this problem, other people must have this problem,” Howe said. Howe saw a business opportunity and opened All About Me, a formal consignment shop. “I started this with basically eight dresses from my daughter,” she said.

All About Me specializes in all kinds of formal wear including first communion dresses, mothers’ dresses for weddings and pageant dresses, in addition to traditional high school dance dresses. Howe sees All About Me as a

so close to Furniture Row and Value City, a small furniture district has popped up in Florence. It’s a good example that Florence shoppers aren’t just Florence residents, and people will travel to Florence for what they need, Wice said. In addition to the Morris opening, Verizon Wireless hosted a grand opening for its new store on Saturday, June 23. The new store is located at 7533 Mall Road, across the street from Verizon’s old store. Because of the popularity of the Florence store, Verizon needed to expand, so they bought the old Lonestar Steakhouse building, tore it down and built a new store from the ground up. “It’s great when an existing retailer does good business in the city and needs to expand,” Wice said. While the two stores open around the same time, there’s still more coming in Florence, including the new Five Guys Burgers and Fries that’s opening soon, he said. Visit for more community news

FLORENCE — Within a few days’ time, Florence hosted grand openings for two of its biggest retail developments. The Morris Home Center, at 8040 Burlington Pike, had a grand opening event on Tuesday, June 26. Formerly a Kmart, Morris spent about $5 million redeveloping the space and will have multiple stores including the Better Sleep Shop, the Morris Big TV Store and Ashley Furniture HomeStore. “We think it’s a great concept,” said Josh Wice, business/ community development director for Florence. The lot is a good example of how the city works with retailers to keep vacancy low. “We made sure that prime piece of real estate didn’t sit vacant and become an eyesore,” Wice said. With the Morris store being

Taft shares art with N. Ky. By Libby Cunningham

The painting “Mrs. Stephen Payne-Gallwey and Her Son Charles” by Joshua Reynolds is on display at the Scheben branch of the Boone County Public Library in Union. NANCY

On a sunny Wednesday in Covington, a man walking along Scott Street stopped outside the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center, and cocked his head at a painting seemingly plopped in the lawn in front of the building. After wondering aloud about what would happen to the art piece as soon as inclement weather roared in, he walked on, with others unknowingly following in his footsteps. They too displayed the same knee-

After an event is over, dresses can earn back some money instead of just filling a closet, never to be worn again, she said. Shoppers looking for a specific color can get some special help at All About Me. “If they can come in here with pictures of what they want, I can purchase it and then they can either rent or buy from me,” Howe said. A lifelong Florence resident, Howe decided to put her store at 225 Main St. in Florence, centrally located for lots of

do a double-take,” said Tricia Suit, manager of marketing and communications with Cincinnati’s Taft Museum of Art. The Taft hopes the sightings become common. In honor of the museum’s 80th birthday, the Art for All program has placed replicas of favorite pieces throughout Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati. The project is based on similar efforts by the Detroit Institute of Art and the National Gallery in London, England. It’s funded by the Haile U.S. Bank Foundation. “We thought our 80th anniversary was a nice time to remind people of this collection and that it really belongs to them,” Suit said. By taking high-quality photographs of favored pieces, then creating replica frames and coating the shots with automotive paint, the paintings are expected to survive the elements. Pieces are popping up in Northern Kentucky, with paintings at the Erlanger branch of the Kenton County Public Library, the Notre Dame Urban Education Center in Covington, Devou Park and Florence Freedom ballpark, to name a few. “We’re thrilled we were asked to be part of this,” said Becky Kempf, public relations coordinator at the Boone County Public Library, which has paintings at the Burlington and Union branches. “In Boone County we don’t have a cultural center per se, and any time we can help bring art to our community we’re excited.” At the Kenton County Public Library’s Erlanger branch, adult programming librarian Venus Moose said the art work is often noticed. “A lot of people will look at the piece and ask about it,” she said. “The most popular question is if it’s weather-proofed.” The reaction at the Carnegie is similar, based on what executive director Katie Brass has heard. “Just last week somebody asked me how long the piece of art was going to be outside and was it going to be damaged,” she said. The art will last until the end of September, Suit said, with presentations about the works the third Sunday of July, August and September; Northern Kentucky’s will be on Sept. 16. “There’ll be a map of the museum on that day,” Suit said, which “shows where reproductions in Northern Kentucky are in the gallery. If you see the one in Erlanger, we’ll show you where to find it in the gallery.”

prietor of the Rabbit Hash General Store, is a Folksider. “I think (the) Folksider market gives a fresh new twist to Rabbit Hash,” she said. People have always associated the community with artists and musicians, which is why the market is a perfect fit, Markesbery said. “I think it’s one more way for the community to grow together,” she said.

Utley says the market features everything from fine arts to produce, antiques, potters and jewelry makers among others. “It’s a really fun shopping experience,” Utley said. They had 26 vendors on their first market day, and Utley said organizers are shooting for 30 at the July 8 exhibit. “We had some really, really talented vendors,” she said, adding it’s a great outlet for the artists, a number of whom are stayat-home mothers who do the work as a hobby. According to Utley, the market is a juried show and everyone participating has to be approved. “We want to give people what we feel like is the best out there,” she said. Terrie Markesbery, pro-

RABBIT HASH — A new arts and craft market, which will operate once a month in Rabbit Hash, encourages residents to “think locally and buy yocally.” The Folksiders Market, first opened on June10, features Folksider artisans from the Tristate region. It’s held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the second Sunday of each month through December. The next market will be on July 8. Folksiders, a consortium of artists, musicians, crafters, bakers, dealers, designers and finders, was co-founded by Susan Utley of Rabbit Hash and Jarrod Becker of Erlanger. A Folksider is someone with an appreciation for “all of the simple and good things in life,” a release says. According to Utley, she and Becker had for years talked about a forming a group consisting of artists, crafters and musicians. Anyone, she said, “who had a keen eye and love for beautiful things.” They wanted to turn that into “an art market experience we could share with our community,” Utley said. At the first of the year, they decided to move forward with the idea. “We found some really,

Sakura Chorus shares through song

Union Scouts on adventure trek Community Recorder

By Amy Scalf

A group of Boy Scouts from Troop 702 from the Dan Beard Council in Union will be going to the Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico. They will go on an 80mile backpacking high adventure trek. The crew from Troop 702 consists of Corbin Fox, Zack Koenig, Sam Krugel, Andrew Case, Nicholas Gilling, Tyler Zahn, Ryan Nix and Tristan Moeller. The adult leaders are Jay Tracy, Jeff Koenig, Trey Nix and Tom Case. The crew departs on July 1 and will return on July 14.


The World Choir Games will bring the Greater Cincinnati area several opportunities to share different cultures through song, but a local chorus has been been doing that for years. Made up of residents of Northern Kentucky as well as Southern Ohio, the Sakura Ladies Chorus is led by Sayuri Jones of Crestview Hills and Emi Akiba of Mason, Ohio. The group has worked along with the Japan America Society of Greater Cincinnati to promote Japanese music and culture since 1998. Jones said initially, the

Black named new Yealey principal By Justin B. Duke

FLORENCE — Linda Black just got her dream job. Black will start as the new principal at Yealey Elementary July 1. Black has worked for Boone County Schools for 20 years and spent the last few years at Yealey as an instructional coach. Before the principal job opened at Yealey, Black had been looking to move into a leadership position, but wanted to go somewhere that was close to her family. Since she’d already been working at Yealey, Black was able to stay close and keep the relationships she’d already built at the school. “It’s kind of a dream come true,” Black said. Black takes over as principal after the retirement of Nancy Rogers, who’d led the school for a decade. “I’m excited to continue the traditions but also bring some new things,” Black said. Black and Rogers have built a friendship over the years, and Black is glad that she’ll be able to stay in touch and get answers to questions, Black said. “I’m lucky to say she’s a mentor to me,” she said. In addition to a new principal, Yealey is getting a new guidance counseling team. “It’s going to be new leadership,” Black said. Black is excited that she and

Thomas More to host preview night Community Recorder High school students preparing for or in the midst of their college searches can learn more about the admissions process at Thomas More College’s Preview Night 6 p.m. July 11 at the Student Center. The event kicks off with a cookout, check-in and a departmental browsing fair. Presentations by admissions, financial aid and student life staff will follow. A campus tour, including stops at residence halls, classrooms and the gym will be offered. Informational sessions will address various topics, including when to take the ACT/SAT, the importance of the individual campus visit, securing institutional and external financial aid, and the value of getting involved on college campuses. There will be information about potential internships and co-cops offered through the college. Thomas More faculty from each department, as well as representatives from athletics, campus ministry, student life, financial aid and admissions will be available. To register call 344-3332.

Linda Black is the new principal at Yealey Elementary. PROVIDED the guidance team can all start the new era at Yealey together. While her students are likely not looking forward to August, the school year can’t come soon enough for Black.

Over the next year, Black looks to strengthen Yealey’s classroom technology incorporation and build strong relationships with her students and their parents.

“I definitely want my parents to know my door is open,” Black said. Visit for more community news

Students gain library cards Reading goes beyond the walls of Florence Elementary School. The kindergartners at Florence Elementary promoted reading as their service learning project on the morning announcements. Any student could apply for a library card by completing three easy steps: Take the application home; ask your grown-up to fill out the application with you; and bring back to school. The kindergarten grade level handled the processing. In May, the kindergarteners walked to the Boone County Public Library along with a few parents. Donna Ammerman, youth services outreach specialist, and Adriana Silva, youth services associate, read the students a story, giving them a

chance to cool off from their walk. They explained the Summer Reading program which focuses on night things like dreams and sleep. After reading only five hours the students can earn a free book and as they continue to read they will receive more prizes.

The students received personalized cards and then picked out a book to take home. The students showed off their books and walked back to school. They are ready for summer reading which will help prepare them for first grade.

Yealey retirees lived the dream By Melissa Stewart

FLORENCE — Nancy Rogers and Terri Maile have been living the dream. Both found and flourished in careers they love at a place they adore – Yealey Elementary School. In May, they retired, but working at Yealey will forever impact their lives. Rogers’s career ended, technically where it started. She attended Yealey as a child and for the last10 years has served there as principal. “When you’re a kid people ask you, ‘what’s your dream,’ she said. “For me it was this – to have started school here and end up here. I’ve come full circle.” A career in education is something Rogers had always thought about. As a freshman in college, however, she decided to study accounting. After a year, she changed her focus to education. Thirty-three years later, she’s convinced she made the right decision. “It was definitely the right position for me,” she said. “Teaching is just one of those professions that you know if you want to do it or not. You just know.” Maile, who has served as a counselor at Yealey for 13 years, agreed. In high school she tutored younger students, babysat and worked with a youth group. “I always knew I wanted to work with kids,” she said. “They’re kind of fun and they’re honest. I feel like I have been lucky to work in a field that I was cut out to do.” Both appreciate the uniqueness the elementary school setting has to offer. “It’s neat to see the kids grow,” Maile said. “We are so blessed we get to experience that. We see them from when they are barely potty trained to when they can read their first word to when they can kick a ball.” According to Rogers, Yealey is an extra special place because of the dedicated staff and parents. “There’s a lot of tradition at Yealey. That tradition is nurturing kids and it goes beyond academics,” she said. “There’s a ‘you can do it’ attitude. Failing is not an option. The mission is this: develop who they will be for the rest of their lives. When these kids graduate from here they’re not just ready for middle school but for life and career.” Maile said that the expectations are high, but met because the teachers and staff do whatever it is they can to help the students succeed. They have “faith” in the students and they “know how to have fun,” she said. Being a part of this tradition of excellence had made them both very proud. Rogers is also pleased with the job the school system has done in utilizing technology. She said to have been involved in such a project is one of the greatest accomplishments of her career. “What a difference it makes in what we do,” Rogers said. “It’s exciting to be a part of it.” Maile said she’s most proud of the successes of the mentor program and Family Resource Center.

National students learn from business owner Community Recorder Students in the Oral Communications classes at the Florence campus of National College had the opportunity to hear small business owner Lynnae Bussell discuss the importance of proper communication in the workplace. Humanities chair and instructor Cheryl Heer invited Bussell for the ob-

servance of Women’s History Month. She encouraged students to think about the many ways communication can impact their professional lives. As an entrepreneur, Bussell shared how good communication skills have helped her succeed and meet the challenges that women face in the business world. She stressed the importance

of knowing your audience and providing them with the essential information that they need to succeed in the workplace. She said there are many factors that help individuals communicate effectively such as: “Listen, don’t hear,” “Use your personality to your advantage,” and “Use nonverbal communication to project a positive attitude.”

Family advice leads to new career Community Recorder Lat Diouf had a dream of working in the medical field but being from the Republic of Senegal in western Africa meant realizing his dream would be a challenge. He said that in Senegal, “If your parents are poor as mine were, you are usually limited to a high school education.” This motivated him to follow his dream by relocating to the United States. He knew that there would be cultural and communi-

but he had to find a job first. His niece, Yaye Diop, attended the Florence campus of National College and earned a business administration-management degree. She encouraged her uncle to consider attending National College. He ended up losing his job so he was able to enroll with tuition assistance

That was something I was worried about, but now I have the confidence that I can do both. She was very inspirational to me,” Elliott said.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Do we need weekly Trash for Cash reminders?

The Trash for Cash experience letters that endlessly flow into your office on a weekly basis are of great entertainment value for me. Each week before I remove the Recorder from its plastic sleeve, I have a bet with one part of myself that says there will be a Trash for Cash letter in there while the other part of me stubbornly refuses to believe that each week a new letter will appear. Guess which part of me always wins? The part of me that says there will be a Trash for Cash experience letter. By no means am I mocking those who have voluntarily cleaned up our streets through this program. Instead, I’d just like to call attention to the fact that it is my belief that the majority of people who read this paper are, for the most part, proud, law-abiding, Boone County residents who do not need a weekly reminder to cease throwing beer bottles and dirty diapers from our car windows. Those of you who wish to take this up as your main mission might find a more effective means of targeting your message by hiding in the bushes along the road you’ve just helped to clean. Each time someone throws something out of the window, you can jump out of the bushes and yell, “Gotcha!” then proceed to tell them your Trash for Cash story. I think that will work better. In future instances, that person will think twice before littering because they won’t want to be surprised by a person who emerges from the bushes and tells long stories. Hopefully, my letter serves to even the odds in the future with the bet I have between the two sides of myself. Thanks to all of you who volunteer your time with this program and all others that serve to make Boone County a great place to live. Frank Coffenberry Florence

Scouts clean up Petersburg dock

Troop 836 was grateful to once again participate in the Trash for Cash program and learned some valuable lessons from the experience. We learned how beautiful the drive was from Hebron to Petersburg and learned to appreciate how pretty and calm the Ohio River is in the morning time in Petersburg. We found a few dead fish, but mostly trash that people had left behind in camp fires such as aluminum soda cans, containers that had bait and miscellaneous paper. We learned that the Boy Scout camping motto of leave the camp site cleaner than when you arrived is an important principle in keeping our environment and local communities clean. It was sad to see that some people have little respect for what are considered nice areas for families to spend time. We learned that despite these differences, there are many people who do want to help clean up these areas and will always support Boone County in this great initiative. Shaun Neal Scoutmaster, Troop 836 Union

Celebrate the noble experiment First in war, first in peace, first in the hearts of his countrymen, George Washington, born in relative affluence, resisted the monarchy of his past from England to embrace the democracy of the newborn United States of America. He was our first General of the Army of the newly formed rebellion by the Continental Congress. He was first in peace as he brought about the surrender of the British commander Cornwallis. The first in the world of commerce and conquest, the British Empire was pre-eminent in the world. George Washington is first in the hearts of his countrymen. He was and is the eternal model for this new idea of democracy. It may seem simple now, but then he was charting new ground with almost each new step he took. He surrounded himself with the best and brightest who worked together for the common good of the new nation. He was first to assume command, to craft a

peace, and to purchase his place in the pantheon of princes in our collective consciences. John Adams was second, Herbert but not to those Booth who knew him COMMUNITY well. He was RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST irascible, outspoken, and often ignored because of his strong opinions and will. He was one of our first ambassadors to France and to England. He was one who crafted the peace treaty with England to end the Revolutionary War. He was our second president and first vice-president of this new United States. Yes, Thomas Jefferson was third in the line of presidents of this new nation, but he lives in the minds of many as the principal author of the Declaration of Independence. He was chosen to author the Declaration of Independence. Several changes

in his original document were made by Congress, but the historical authorship goes to Jefferson. President Thomas Jefferson believed in the republic but acted as a despot when he fortuitously bought the Louisiana Purchase from the French for $15 million without any consultation with or consent of Congress. He will sit as one in the pantheon of presidents and in the hearts and minds of his countrymen. All which brings us to the Fourth, the Fourth of July, of course. On this day we celebrate the founding of our nation, the independence declared from England, and the noble experiment which has lasted into three centuries. This is not to demean our fourth president, James Madison, who is the primary author of our Constitution and our Bill of Rights. What our founders brought forth that allows us to celebrate our Fourth of July, Independence Day, has been purchased

and prized by many that have followed in their footsteps. Jefferson said that the nation’s liberty is purchased by the blood of patriots, and that our freedom requires eternal vigilance. No generation of our last century was able to escape the defense of our heritage and human values. We can only pray that those who follow us will not forget there is no cheap victory nor peace without price. In remembrance of our past, we must also honor the fallen who paid the ultimate price that our nation might live and prosper. Let our praises ring forth as we celebrate another Fourth of July. And let us all be constantly aware that our mutual future resides in us, you and me, are the future of our great and noble experiment in the governance of mankind. Pray that we will be worthy. God bless the United States of America! Dr. Herbert R, Booth is a Boone County resident.

Discussion: Avoid religion, politics They say there are two things they say should never mention in polite conversation … oops. In a few days we will celebrate the 4th of July, and the signing of the Declaration of Independence. In writing the Declaration, our founders knew they had no right even to create a Constitution unless they could claim a higher authority than that of King George III, who at that time was the supreme law of the land. Their answer: God was our authority and His liberty their cause. The document used phrases like “the laws of nature and nature’s God” and “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.” President Ronald Reagan said, "Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it, have never known it again." Soon the Supreme Court may

rule on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act (aka Obama Care). While much of the focus has been Addia on Obama Care, Wuchner dozens of Catholic inCOMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST stitutions have COLUMNIST filed lawsuits against the Department of Health and Human Services over its “mandate” and its narrow definition of religious practice. This not merely a Catholic issue, but a threat to our most cherished freedoms and a matter protecting the gift of all religious liberties and right of conscience. The issue is not whether people have a right to abortioninducing drugs, sterilization and contraception. Those services are, and will continue to be, available in the United States, and nothing prevents the government itself from making them more widely available. The issue, the right to such services

does not authorize the government to force any institution, school, church, hospital or religious organization to violate its own conscience by making it provide, pay for, and/or facilitate those services to others, contrary to its sincerely held religious beliefs. Religious freedom is a cornerstone of America: The Constitution insures there will be no establishment of one particular religion and at the same time protects our freedom to practice one’s religion without government interference. Many hospitals began as affiliates of particular faiths, as expressions of their particular mission to serving others and their community. In the town where I grew up there was the Baptist Hospitals, the Methodist Hospital, the Jewish Hospital, St. Anthony Hospital etc. Caring for the sick, serving others is central to the mission and ministry of many faiths. Under the aspects of the HHS mandate, prescriptive government regulations would supersede the mission and princi-

ples of many faith-founded institutions like hospitals and universities. In essence, “the exception from the regulations” may only apply if all your employees were of that particular faith or confine faith and religion to the walls of the church building and strip time-honored faith-based organizations of their expression of mission and outreach ministry. If the federal government can define religious expression, then it can control or even outlaw it. This is a crucial moment for each of us as citizens, for our children and grandchildren and a decisive hour for our nation. I hope each of you will find the time to learn more on these issues. On July 4th we celebrate our gifts of liberty and cherished freedoms. May God bless america and long may she be “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” State Rep. Addia Wuchner, R-Florence, is a member of the Kentucky General Assembly.

VA expands mental health care for vets U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki often reminds us: As the tide of war recedes we have the opportunity, and the responsibility, to anticipate the needs of returning veterans. As these newest veterans return home, we must ensure that they have access to quality mental health care in order to successfully make the transition to civilian life. Last year, Veteran Affairs provided specialty mental health services to more than 1.3 million veterans – a 35 percent increase since 2007 in the number of veterans who received mental health services at Veteran Affairs. That’s why it was recently announced that VA will add an additional 1,600 mental health staff professionals and an additional 300 support staff members nationwide.



A publication of

The Cincinnati VA Medical Center had already increased staffing to meet the current demand for menLinda tal health serSmith vices. These efCOMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST forts to hire COLUMNIST more mental health professionals build on our record of service to veterans. President Obama, Shinseki and Cincinnati Veteran Affairs leaders have devoted more people, programs, and resources to veteran mental health services. Veteran Affairs has increased the mental health care budget by 39 percent since 2009. What’s more, we’ve increased the number of mental health

staff members by 41 percent since 2007. That means today, we have a team of professionals that’s 20,590 strong – all dedicated to providing much-needed direct mental health treatment to veterans. While we have made great strides to expand mental health care access, we have much more work to do. The men and women who have had multiple deployments over a decade of combat have carried a tremendous burden for our country. We’re taking action to reach out to those who need mental health care instead of waiting for them to come to us. Our mission is to increase access to our care and services. We’ve greatly increased the number of Veterans Readjustment Counseling Centers (Vet Centers) throughout the country. We’ve also developed an exten-

The mental health of America’s veterans not only touches those of us at VA and the Department of Defense, but also families, friends, co-workers and people in our communities.

Adam Hicks, a fourth-grader at Florence Elementary, helps to make the beehive body during the Beekeepers Club meeting. THANKS TO KATHY KUHN

What’s all the buzz going on around Florence Elementary? The Beekeepers Club started in January with teachers Carleen Powell and Amanda Byrd. The club has learned about honey bees and their habitat. They started by building a beehive body. The students started construction under the direction of Tonia Spille, a 4-H Youth Development program assistant at Boone County Cooperative Extension Service. The students worked together to build the three main components of the beehive: the honey super, frames, and hive body (brood chamber). The bees were installed in April in their new home which resides on the University of Kentucky Extension Service property across from Central Park. During the bee installation

20,000 Italian bees – 10,000 in each of the hives – were released and students and Spille suited up to avoid being stung. The queen bee cage was first removed from the container of bees and then the cage was placed between the frames in the hive. A piece of cork was removed from the bottom of the queen cage revealing a piece of candy which is eaten away by worker bees and the queen is released into her new home. Worker bees need lots of energy to draw out the foundation adding to the wax frames in the honeycomb cells. Jars of sugar water are place inside an empty hive body to feed the busy bees during this transition. The amount of honey that is produced depends on several variables. Weather is a key factor. This year the winter was mild and an early spring brought lots of locust, clover and wildflowers blooming for the honey bees to begin the process. By next spring the frames should be ready for extracting the honey. In order to remove the frames from the hives the bees are

smoked out of their home. The best kind of smoke is a cool white smoke so as not to contaminate the hive. The smoke relaxes the bees causing a diversion so the beekeeper can handle their business. Jerry Brown, Cooperative Extension agent for agricultural at the Boone County Extension Office, demonstrated during May how to extract the honey. Using Spille’s personal honeybee frames, he used a hot knife to uncap the honeycomb. The frames were then placed into the extractor and spun twice, once for each side. The honey was collected at the bottom of the tank and drained out into two strainers. This removed any impurities such as extra wax or possibly bee parts. The honey was ready to bottle and each student received a container of sweet-tasting honey. The Beekeepers Club and all involved received a better understanding of the pollination process and the steps to produce honey. The plan is to use this project as a learning experience for future beekeepers of Florence Elementary.

The Beekeepers Club at Florence Elementary is made up of fourth- and fifth-graders that are becoming amateur beekeepers while learning the steps to produce honey and keep safe. THANKS TO KATHY KUHN

nese household. All nine of us children learned at an early age how to distinguish oregano (the hyssop of the Bible) from marjoram, which mint was to be picked for kibbee, and how many sprigs of thyme it took for a kettle full of dolmathas. (Thyme grew wild in the Jerusalem hills). Some of the herbs doubled as medicines, as well. Mom gave us anise tea for cramps, and babies recovering from illness were given barley water sweetened with honey and anise. Barley was a popular grain during Bible days and honey was the main sweetener. She came upon this naturally, learning from her mother holistic ways to heal. To this day, my Aunt Margaret still cooks with Bible herbs and spices. She is in her 90s and going strong! One of my most prized possessions is the huge ancient cast iron “spider” kettle that I inherited from my mother. She grew enough herbs for our family of 11 in that kettle. It now sits in a place of honor in my garden, and my “hobbit”/basil grows

Rita grows basil in a cast iron kettle she inherited from her mother. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD happily there. (The legend is that basil sprang up in the ground near Christ’s tomb after the resurrection). I ask the Lord to bless her as I scatter seeds on the surface, patting them into the soil with bare hands. There is a burgeoning interest in holistic health and aromatherapy, and many herbs and spices mentioned in the Bible are included in natural remedies. There is dill, another tithing herb, for “gripe water” to soothe colicky babies; mint tea for digestion and in spritzers to

refresh and cleanse the air; cilantro/coriander (analogous to Biblical manna) for removing heavy metals from the body. Flax, out of which linen was made, helps lower cholesterol and cinnamon helps stabilize blood sugar. Bay (athletes were crowned with bay) shows promise in research for diabetes and heart health and is used in steam facials. You could say they’re good for body and soul!

“Bible” bean salad

Whisk together dressing ingredients. Set aside while mixing salad ingredients. Pour dressing over salad. Toss gently to blend.

I adapted this from a chick pea salad daughterin-law Jessie shared. Perfect for that July 4 gathering. Note all the Bible foods and herbs included: vinegar, olive oil, cumin, garlic (which was eaten as a vegetable during Bible times), oregano, beans, onions and, of course, salt. Remember Lot’s wife turned to salt. Healthy, too. Dressing: Go to taste on this, adding more vinegar, etc. if you like.

Did you know that many of the common herbs and spices we use today have Biblical roots? I have always been fascinated with the historical significance of Biblical herbs and spices so often mentioned throughout Rita the Old and Heikenfeld New Testaments. RITA’S KITCHEN They’re living links to our past, and many of the trendy herbs and spices common to cuisines all around the world trace their roots to Biblical and pre-Biblical times. Even before people could write, they used herbs and spices to season and preserve their foods. The people of Bible days were herbalists out of necessity. Herbs and spices were also used in cosmetics, dyes and medicines. All households, whether rich or poor, cultivated an herb garden and the plants were highly valued. My own Lebanese cooking and healing heritage is rich with facts and folklore regarding herbs of Bible days. I remember my parents telling stories of their families who immigrated from “the old country,” Lebanon. Mint, one of the tithing herbs, was carefully nurtured during the long voyage to America. We used Bible herbs and spices in everyday cooking in our traditional Leba-

Quilting is a family tradition Mrs. Virginia Adams was drawn to the “Texas Broken Star” quilt block because it reminded her of the starry night-sky view from her barn, and quilting with her mother. Her mother, Lucy Allen, was a teacher but in her spare time she and Adams made and sold quilts. Mrs. Adams met her husband, Harold, in Owsley County where he was working for the state highway department. A position with the old L & N Railroad brought them to Cincinnati where he worked until he retired in 1986. They bought their present home in Boone County from her aunt, Reca Setser, in l966 and moved there in l969. The 86-acre farm was previously owned by other relatives, such as her cousins the Becknells, going back 100 years. Mr. Adams raised Polled Hereford cattle, corn and tobacco on the farm. They

How to store your fresh fruits and vegetables Many of us are buying more fresh fruits and vegetables as more items come into season. You can already find some locally grown produce at the local farmers markets. Nothing quite beats the thrill of buying fresh from a market.

get them home will affect their keeping quality. Knowing what to store on the counter and what to refrigerate can make a big

difference in the taste of the end product. As a general rule, produce should not be washed until just prior to use. Unless there are large clumps of wet or damp soil on the product wait until you are ready to use the item. Wash your produce in cold, running water. It is generally not a good idea to allow items to soak in water. If the produce has a thick skin, you can scrub it with a vegetable brush to Diane remove all Mason soil. OtherEXTENSION wise, careNOTES fully rub the outer skin of the items to dislodge any soil that might be on them. It is important to wash fruits and vegetables prior to use even if the outer peel will be removed. Germs and bacteria can be easily transferred from the outer layers to the edible portions. Tomatoes, pears, peaches and nectarines should be kept at room temperature until fully ripe so they can become sweeter. After they are fully ripe, use them or store them in the refrigerator. Most vegetables are best if used within a reasonable time after harvest. Celery, cabbage, carrots and bell peppers will keep a week or two in the refrigerator vegetable drawer. Taking some time to properly store the items you purchase will help you keep money in your wallet and allow you to enjoy the fresh vegetables and fruits of the season. Diane Mason is county extension agent for family and consumer sciences at the Boone County Cooperative Extension Service.
