Heat routine for construction crews

By Patricia A. Scheyer

Community Recorder Contributor

For many, the intense heat has meant planning a schedule of moving from one air-conditioned place to another via an air-conditioned car. But for those whose jobs require staying outdoors in the blacktop-melting heat, there has to be a survival mode. “We start our crews at 6 a.m. and try to be done by 4 or 4:30 in the afternoon,” said Pat Taylor of Lawrence Construction in Burlington, the company in charge of the construction on Mall Road in Florence. “All of our workers have gone through the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) training at least once, which tells them how to deal with the heat, among other things.” Three different crews are on the job on Mall Road, so the amount of workers vary. But most are of the opinion that they let the sweat roll and keep on working. “The nature of the job is that you freeze or sweat, it’s either hot or cold,” said Kent Robinson of Burlington. “The truth is, we were glad to see the dry weather,” said Tony Smith, crew leader. “We had so much rain, we couldn’t work, and if you don’t work, you don’t get paid.” “Absolutely,” said Hilliard Vance of Elsmere with a laugh. “When you don’t get paid, you have to eat crow. You know what crow tastes like? So we don’t mind the heat much, you just drink a lot of water. The heat is part of the job. I knew it 35 years ago when I started.” Smith said they don’t have any special tricks to deal with the heat. “In addition to drinking, you have to eat right,” he explained. “Most of the guys bring fresh veg-

Also, we have been working together for a long time, and we know each other’s habits. So we can pick up on trouble signs before they become a problem.” He went on to say that watersoaked kerchiefs don’t really work because they move around a lot, and there is so much dirt and grit that coat the skin and clothes that it becomes uncomfortable. “We keep our water bottles

filled,” said Vance. “If it gets too bad, besides drinking it, we pour it over our heads and necks.” Bob Townsend, Florence director of public services, has about 40 to 45 workers out in the field on any given day. “Our guys are all trained to know the signs of heat-related problems like cramps and exhaustion,” he said. “They all know if they are feeling strange, they need to sit in the shade for a few min-

utes and let their supervisor know.” He said that hydration is stressed by all the supervisors, and first aid kits are readily available. So the main tips for surviving the heat are hydration, taking frequent breaks, limiting time out in the hottest part of the day, and watching for troublesome signs in people, especially the young and the elderly.

City Barbeque to open in August By Patricia A. Scheyer Community Recorder Contributor

For anyone who is wondering about the new City Barbeque restaurant going up in front of Kmart across from Mall Road, they can wonder no more and start making plans to stop in for dinner. The new restaurant is the fifth location for City Barbeque in the Greater Cincinnati area, and the first in Northern Kentucky, completing the original plan to install a location north, south, east and west. “We are planning to open the second week of August, and everything is going according to plan,” said Chris Giles, general manager of City Barbeque. “We smoke all of our meat, and our No. 1 one menu item is beef brisket, followed closely by pulled pork and St Louis style ribs.”



AS HAVING MORE MONEY. To learn how consolidating your retirement accounts to Edward Jones could make sense for you, call today.

The new restaurant seats approximately 150, inside and outside on the four-seasons patio, which is part of the dining experience. The inside will be decorated with barn siding for a Southern barbeque look, and blues music will complete the ambiance to accompany the food. The meat is smoked on site over hickory. “We had been looking for a location in Kentucky for awhile,” Giles explained. “We wanted a community that would support us, and then it had to be close to I-75, and have a good traffic pattern. I grew up in Cold Spring and used to work in Erlanger, so I knew Florence would be great.” Florence Economic Development Director Josh Wice says that Florence is the No. 1 place to locate in Northern Kentucky. “We are filling up fast, but we still have room for development,” he said.

Chris Giles, general manager of the new City Barbeque in Florence, stands in front of the store, which will open the second week in August. “We hear that our area is looked at regionally and nationally because it is growing and expanding. We have potential for outlots in several places that are good for restaurants like City Barbeque. They are a good addition to our city, and will add 40 to 45 jobs.” Giles said that he has plenty of

World of Sports hosts championship By Justin B. Duke


Who Dey!

Four Cincinnati Bengals on June 11 visited Skidaddles child care center in Florence. Shown here with the Jenkins family of Erlanger are Cincinnati Bengal player Orien Harris, Bengal Jonathan Fanene, Luke Jenkins, Crystal Jenkins, Audrey Jenkins, Bengal Johnathan Joseph, Carson Jenkins and Bengal Robert Geathers.

A Florence champion will soon be crowned. World of Sports is hosting the first-ever Florence City Golf Championship Aug. 7-8. The tournament will be a stroke play format and have tee times beginning at 7 a.m. both days. Private clubs often have championships that are limited to members of the club, but Dave Peru, superintendent/general manager of World of Sports, wanted a tournament open to everyone. “With the city owning the place, we figured we could have a city championship,” Peru said.

This gives the city the chance to crown the winners the champions of Florence, he said. “It’s going to be perfect,” Peru said. The tournament will be broken up into five different groups: juniors 17 years old and under, seniors ages 50 to 64, super seniors ages 65 and older, women ages 18 to 49 and men ages 18 to 49. Winners will be awarded “high dollar value” gift certificates to World of Sports. Cash prizes can’t be given to allow golfers to retain their amateur status, Peru said. The tournament takes place during the construction of the new $4.8 million complex, which will be renamed World of Golf when it opens. While the building looks like the construction zone it is, the course is open and

looking great, Peru said. “I think we’ve got the course nicer than it’s ever been,” he said. With the course in nice shape, the tournament will serve to remind everyone that World of Sports is still open for play, Peru said. “There’s still people that don’t know we’re open,” he said. The tournament will also build momentum for the opening of World of Golf, Peru said. “With the excitement of the new construction, absolutely we want people to get excited this year,” he said. The tournament is open to all customers of World of Sports and residents of Florence. To register call 859371-8255. The tournament costs $20 plus greens fee and includes prizes and lunch.

Supporting green power is now possible for Duke Energy Kentucky customers who choose to participate in two voluntary programs to balance the environmental impact of their energy-intensive lifestyles. Duke Energy Kentucky’s GoGreen and Carbon Offset programs launched July 1. Both programs reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, help to advance the development of alternative energy sources and diversify energy supplies to lessen the demand for fossil fuels. By enrolling in GoGreen, customers ensure that a specified amount of electricity is produced from renewable or environmentally friendly sources. Monthly contributions of at least $4, representing 200 kilowatthours (kWh) of electricity, aid in the purchase of certified renewable energy certificates, or RECs. RECs represent the benefits of renewable energy sources like wind, solar, biomass and hydroelectric power. In addition to the minimum purchase of 200 kWh per month, GoGreen participants may purchase additional 100-kWh blocks for $2 each. Duke Energy’s Carbon

Offset program helps Kentucky customers calculate and then offset, or balance, the CO2 produced from everyday activities like driving, watching television or doing laundry. Carbon offsets are designed to mitigate the impact of energy use that can’t be avoided or drawn from renewable sources. After calculating their carbon footprint at, customers may decide to purchase enough offsets to balance all or part of their energy use each month. Contributions to GoGreen and the Carbon Offset program are added to a customer’s monthly electric bill after they enroll in either program. For Duke Energy Kentucky’s GoGreen program, call (800) 423-5401 or visit for more information.

Boone only smoke ban holdout By Paul McKibben

Northern Kentucky appears to be closer to having a regional public smoking ban with only the Boone County Fiscal Court lacking the votes to pass an ordinance. That was the sentiment expressed at Tuesday’s State of Northern Kentucky Address program at Receptions in Erlanger where the judge-executives from Boone, Kenton, Campbell and Grant counties spoke about several issues. Boone County Judgeexecutive Gary Moore said he doesn’t believe at this point Boone County has the votes to pass an ordinance. “In talking with our commissioners and taking a look ... at the economic climate, I don’t think we’re there today,” he said. “So, it’s a work in progress. As we go forward, we’ll see where it goes.” Kenton County Judge-

Teacher charged for son’s beating A middle school teacher faces a felony abuse charge after Boone County Sheriff’s Office investigators allege he beat his 5-year-old son with a belt on the Fourth of July “because the boy was not playing hopscotch to his satisfaction.” Christopher Robison, 46, of Union, is facing a Class C felony criminal abuse charge. Robison is a social studies teacher at Camp Ernst Middle School. He turned himself in Monday afternoon, posted a

The suspension means Robison is not to interact with students. He cannot be on campus or participate in any school-related activities during the suspension. Poe said Robison has been in the district for four years, including the last two at Camp Ernst. It is unclear when Robison will make his first court appearance. The Class C felony carries a possible penalty of five to 10 years in prison. Kentucky News Service

$500 bond and was released, said Boone County sheriff’s spokesman Tom Scheben. The incident occurred around 3 p.m. at Robison’s home and caused “severe bruising” to his son, according to Scheben. Boone County Schools Superintendent Randy Poe said Tuesday that he is trying to gather more facts about the incident. “He is suspended pending an internal investigation,” Poe said. “We need to find out more information.”

Grand jury gets Oakbrook meth case The case of a Boone County woman accused of making methamphetamine in her suburban home will go before a Kenton County grand jury. A lawyer for Susan Cox, 42, waived his client’s right to a preliminary hearing July 6 in Kenton District Court. Cox missed a court hearing last month because she was in a drug treatment facility in Falmouth. The grand jury will likely get the case this month. Cox was arrested June 10 when Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force agents, working with Boone County sheriff’s deputies, staked out her home in the 1700 block of Promontory Drive in the Oakbrook subdivision, then followed her to Elsmere. The home is valued at $129,800, according to the

Union is hundreds of miles away from a real beach. But the city is planning to bring a beach to its residents with a beach party 2-11 p.m. Saturday, July 17, at the Union Community Building on Old Union Road. According to Karen Franxman, Union city events coordinator, the city is bringing in masonry sand which will be dumped in the driveway, creating a sand dance floor. Afterward the sand will be donated to Boone County Parks. Live music is part of the festivities. Mayor Don Kirby’s band, Underpaid Unplugged, performs at 2:30 p.m. Another band, Conch Republic, plays 7-10 p.m. The city has canceled the idea of renting tailgate spaces because of lack of tailgate sales, Franxman said. There will be no coolers allowed with alcohol as previously reported, she added. Vendors will be in attendance selling food and drinks. There will also be an

ice cream eating contest. The beach party will still happen in the event of inclement weather. Old Union Road will be closed from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. the day of the event in front of

the building for through traffic. For more information, visit or call 859-384-1511. There is limited space available.

County on the ordinance. He said all four Boone County Fiscal Court members have questions. He acknowledged that the other two counties appearing to have the votes adds pressure to Boone County to pass it. Moore said health departments in most other communities are the enforcing agency. He said that should be the case here if something passes. The Northern Kentucky Independent District Health Department’s board does not have another meeting until September. Grant County Judge-executive Darrell Link said he was asked early on if he wanted to take part of the smoking ban discussion but said he opted out pretty quickly. The Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce hosted the program with The Kentucky Enquirer and the title sponsor. Dennis Hetzel of The Enquirer and moderated.

executive Ralph Drees said there are three out of four Kenton County Fiscal Court members who will probably vote for a ban. Campbell County Judgeexecutive Steve Pendery said three out of four Campbell County Fiscal Court members are in favor of a ban. Pendery said a number of states have enacted smoking regulations. “We’re not out there on the edge, the cutting edge here,” he said. “It’s more of a question of why haven’t you done this than it is what are you doing with this astonishing new approach to life.” Moore said a draft ordinance is “floating around.” After the program, he told reporters there is not a final ordinance to base a decision on yet. He said there might even be more than one draft. He said he wasn’t sure if all three counties are working on one draft, but he has only seen one. Moore said he can’t say who the holdout is in Boone

As Florence prepares for construction of the new senior center, it’ll have some hoops to jump through. Florence was awarded a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) to help fund the $1.8 million center, to be located on U.S. 42 where the old Florence city building was. With the grant comes special rules that have to be followed, said Business/ Community Development Director Josh Wice. “There are several state and federal regulations we have to abide by in order to draw down the (grant) funds,” Wice said. Some of those regulat i o n s i n c l u d e Florence was entering into a awarded a p r o f e s - $500,000 s i o n a l Community agreem e n t Development with a Block Grant C D B G (CDBG) to certified adminis- help fund the t r a t o r , $1.8 million having a qualified senior center, organiza- to be located tion man- on U.S. 42 age the c e n t e r where the old and the Florence city c i t y building was. appoints an environmental compliance officer and an equal opportunity officer. Council Member Mel Carroll wondered if the added requirements went much farther than the city already requires for its projects. “They’re a little bit more involved,” said Finance Director Linda Chapman. The state and federal regulations are stricter than what Florence requires, but it shouldn’t be too much of a hassle, Chapman said. Florence plans to appoint the Northern Kentucky Area Development District as the administrator. They have experience in administering CDBG grants, so they’ll be able to handle the added requirements that come with the grant, Chapman said. In order to fulfill the requirements and appoint the area development district as administrator, City Council has to pass two resolutions. The first will adopt the procurement code recommended for a CDBG grant, to allow the city to collect on the grant. The second resolution will allow the actions required by the code. The resolution will mean council won’t have to pass a resolution every time a CDBG requirement needs to be fulfilled. “It’s kind of a catch-all resolution,” Wice said. Council was expected to vote on the resolutions Tuesday, July 13.

a full-size grocery store in a much smaller footprint. In addition to the grocery store and gas pumps the site in Union was also envisioned to include a doughnut shop and a coffee shop. At the initial public hearing on the request in April, eight people spoke in opposition to the project, citing concerns about noise, light and traffic impacts from the proposed uses. The planning commission voted 8-2 to approve the recommendation of the committee and deny the request. Planning commission board member Bob Schwenke, who voted to allow the change, agreed with Wright. “I respect the committee, and its report,” Schwenke said. “(But) it’d be nice to see a convenience store back in the area.” The proposed development would be across the street from Ryle High School, on a site previously occupied by an Ameristop store.

and pitcher, and the chamber pot which fit underneath. It is definitely a conversation piece.” She also will bring an old bell that was used in a oneroom schoolhouse, a threelegged iron pot, and possibly a butter mold. “I love it that people are so generous to share their memorabilia with us,” said Lainhart. “All of these things are so precious, and so interesting!” Anyone who would like to share an item may call Lainhart at 689-7420 or Leake at 485-1063.

Panel denies convenience store request The Boone County Planning Commission voted July 7 to deny a change in development plan that would allow a convenience store on U.S. 42 at Frogtown Road in Union. Planning commission members voted to follow a committee report, which cited traffic concerns and the opposition of local residents among the reasons it recommended denial of the proposed change. “Gas pumps are the biggest problem because of traffic generation,” Susan Poston, a planning commission board member, said. The change would allow the developer to build an IGA Express grocery store with four fuel islands at Union Pointe Centre.

The Boone County Historical Society will host its second annual Heritage Day on Saturday, July 17, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Historical Museum. It is located in a tiny building in the parking lot of the Boone County Administration Building in Burlington. The event is free to the public, and is designed to give people an insight into everyday life in the past. “When you think about it, Boone County has been primarily a farming area up until probably the last 30 years,” said Ann Leake, board member and past president of the society. “We invite the people of Boone County to bring in things that their grandparents and great grandparents used, and for the most part they bring in cooking utensils, and farming tools, and pictures. It is very interesting to see.” Last year the day was held in September, and rain kept people away. “We had people bring things that they used to cook on wood stoves,” said Virginia Lainhart, board member, and past president of the society. “We had old metal toys, schoolbooks and primers, blacksmith tools,

Middle-schooler nabs first college scholarship

By Justin B. Duke

For Faith Evans, it is never too early to prepare for college. Evans, who is preparing for her freshman year at Ryle High School, was awarded a scholarship by the Kentucky Middle School Association. Evans was one of 16 students across the state who was given a scholarship and the first ever from Gray Middle School. “I’ve always been trying really hard in school,” Evans said.

The scholarship comes years before Evans will start college, but she’s already given herself a head start. “College is four years away, but it’s good to think about,” she said. To earn the scholarship, Evans had to fill out an application and get recommendation letters from teachers. The recommendation letters were a special treat for Karen Evans, Faith’s mom. She always felt her daughter did well in school, but to read her teachers’ recommendations was proof, Karen Evans said.

“She’s got her head on straight,” she said. As a parent with a daughter who will be going to college in a few years, kicking off scholarships this early is an added bonus, she said. “Every little bit helps,” Karen Evans said. While Faith is already started on getting her college funding, she’s still not sure where she wants to go or what she will study once she gets there. “I’m interested in chemistry, biology and sciences,” she said.


Faith Evans, with her dad Bobby, earned her first college scholarship before starting high school.

Shoop never shied away from technology changes By Justin B. Duke

For Barb Shoop, teaching English didn’t allow her to spend time with enough students. Shoop, Ryle High School’s library media specialist, retired after five years at the school and 21 years in Boone County Schools. After years of teaching English,

Shoop made the transition to the library – she minored in library sciences in college. “I can interact with so many kids that way,” Shoop said. Shoop would open Ryle’s library at 7 a.m. and every day students would be waiting to get in. “The media center is the hub of the school,” Shoop said. During her time in the library,

Shoop saw great changes in the way libraries work. “The biggest thing is all the databases,” Shoop said. While students often like to look online for research, Shoop made sure to keep traditional encyclopedias up to date. “There are those kids that like the book in their hand,” she said. Balancing how different students work and learn made Shoop

an integral part of Ryle, said Principal Matthew Turner. “She’s kind of inside their heads and knows how they think,” Turner said. Despite the rapid changes in technology and research methods, Shoop always kept up, he said. “She doesn’t shy away from that,” Turner said. Though Shoop has about a month of retirement past her,

things probably won’t start feeling different until school is close to starting and she starts having passing thoughts of what she needs to do to prepare, she said. “It’s still in my blood,” Shoop said. Now that she is retired, Shoop hopes to finish sewing projects and write children’s books. “My husband wants me to just chill out for a year,” she said.

SPORTS Wolff claims second amateur title Florence Recorder

July 15, 2010



Editor Melanie Laughman | | 513-248-7573

By James Weber

One putt on the 18th hole was all Emily Wolff needed to win her second Northern Kentucky Women’s Amateur golf championship. Long after the Boone County High School graduate had claimed her second title, though, she regretted that the winning putt came from her opponent’s club and not her own. Wolff defeated Ryle graduate Meghan Schaefer 1-up in match play to win the final July 9 at Triple Crown Country Club. On the last hole, Wolff missed a birdie putt from about seven feet that would have won the title. Then, she stood stunned when Schaefer missed a par putt of less than two feet to lose the hole and give Wolff the win. In match-play competition, each hole is worth just one shot regardless of how many strokes a player wins by. Golfers usually concede short putts to their opponent in the name of sportsmanship and time-saving. Schaefer’s par putt was in a gray area where it wasn’t an obvious decision to concede or not. Wolff spent a while after the match discussing that moment with her parents and apologized publicly to Schaefer during a speech at


Emily Wolff talks to her father Brian after winning the Northern Kentucky Women's Amateur championship July 9. the awards luncheon, saying they were co-champions. It was Wolff’s second Amateur title, the first coming in 2007 when she also beat Schaefer on the last hole. “I wish I could go back and give her that putt,” he said. “It was a good match, I hope no one thinks I’m a jerk for doing that. On 17 I would have made her putt

it. It’s different on 18 because no one wants to win like that. I didn’t think about what happened if she missed it. It was one of those things wehere you get caught up in the moment.” Schaefer thought Wolff would concede the putt. “I was a little nervous, and pulled it,” she said. “I hit it fat.” Wolff shot a 3-over 75





for the round, not recording a birdie during the round. The two players combined to sink only a couple of putts longer than five feet, including an eight-foot birdie by Schaefer on 11. Wolff was up one through eight holes when Schaefer dropped her approach on hole 9 within a foot of the cup for a tap-in birdie. Schaefer’s birdie on 11 gave her a one-hole lead, then she gave the lead back with a bogey on 12. Wolff easily took the lead on 15 with a par-4 when Schaefer didn’t make the green with her fourth shot. Wolff then bogied the par-3 16th to create another tie. “We didn’t make any putts,” Wolff said. “We were talking about it coming up the 18th hole. This is how we wanted it to be, but we’re playing awful.” Wolff exhausted her playing eligibility at Western Kentucky University last year and will return this fall to finish her degree in nutrition and dietetics. She will be a student assistant coach at WKU and contemplate a future pro career. Schaefer’s pro career is already set. She graduated from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va., two years ago, but an elbow injury kept her off the course for two years until this May. “For not playing for two years and having less than

a month to prepare, I can’t complain at all,” she said. “That was one of the things I came here for, seeing how the elbow held up and trying to have fun.” Schaefer will return to Norfolk and become a teaching pro, eventually trying to become a professional golfer as well. The tourney started with 56 players who played one qualifying round, then were divided into seven flights

including the championship flight. The eight players in each flight had three matches to determine the champion. Pam Haines, a Boone County graduate who lives in Williamstown, won the Mint Julep flight. She has been playing in the tourney for a decade. “I love golf,” she said. “I love the competition. I love the ladies. They are marvelous.”

Freedom all-stars ready for second half By James Weber

Tim Grogan would love nothing more than to end his baseball playing career with a championship. While his Florence Freedom professional team faces an uphill climb in the second half of the 2010 season, he is hopeful the team can turn it around. “We have to figure out how to win the close games, but we’re right in there,” he said. Grogan was one of three Freedom players selected to play in the Frontier League All-Star Game July 14 in Marion, Ill. Shortstop

Stephen Shults and relief pitcher Liam Ohlmann also were set to go. Grogan, a Florence native and Covington Catholic graduate, is second on the team in home runs and RBI, and leads in runs scored. “I’m looking forward to it,” he said. “It should be fun there because they always draw well there. They should do it right up there.” Grogan is a veteran of the Freedom, who enter the halfway point with a 19-29 record. They are 20 games behind West Division leader Southern Illinois, who have a sizzling 39-9 record

despite losing its last three games. Florence is eight games behind second-place River City (27-21) for the division’s wild-card berth into the playoffs. Grogan, 26, is preparing to end his playing career after this season and join the Freedom front office as director of amateur baseball. “I haven’t been healthy for four years,” he said. “Hopefully I can make it through 96 games and we can make a run at this.” Shults, a 23-year old from Lawrenceburg, Tenn., is leading the entire league in home runs (13) and batting average (.371) at the halfway point. He leads the Freedom in RBI with 37. Shults came to the team in a June 7 trade less than two weeks into the season. He was college teammates with Freedom players Justin Pickett and Michael Wheeler at the University of the Cumberlands. He had spent three years in the Atlanta Braves organization battling injuries. His 13 homers this year is one less than he had in three years there. “I love the team,” he said. “We’ve got great team chemistry. It’s a great group of guys. We’re having trouble pulling out the close games right now. We have a good team, we just have to get everything clicking.” Ohlmann, a 23-year old from Wallingford, Conn., has been unhittable in relief, giving up just nine hits in 25 innings. He has a 2.13 ERA. When they return to regular play, the Freedom will have six games on the road

Florence Freedom infielder Tim Grogan makes a play May 25. before returning home Thursday, July 22, against Evansville. They need a quick start to get back into playoff contention. Grogan, a member of Cov Cath’s 2002 state title team, would welcome it. “That would mean the world,” he said. “I’ve won a championship in high school and in college. If I can do it at the professional level, it would be icing on the cake.”

Seeing the consequences

Very recently our cheer squad had the opportunity to participate in the Boone County Solid Waste program Trash for Cash. This was a great experience for the girls to see that there are consequences to all actions. We were assigned an area off Ky. 18. I had to admit that there wasn’t a lot of litter. We picked up little things such as candy wrappers, cans and bottles. The most unusual thing we encountered was a dirty diaper. I explained to the girls that someone has to clean up the mess that is tossed out car windows and on that particular Saturday it just happened to be their job. The Florence/Burlington area is relatively clean. After our assigned section was complete, some of us decided to go and help out the football players who were cleaning Weaver Road. We were very surprised at the difference a few miles can make. We filled five bags within an hour. It was very disturbing to see some of the things that were on the side of the road. Overall, I think this was a very good experience for the teams as a whole. Catrina Hirschauer Stewart Drive Florence

Don’t overlook life insurance

Much of the talk lately regarding insurance has related to health care reform, but life insurance should not be an overlooked topic. Many people have lost group life insurance coverage due to the recent downturn in the economy and the layoffs that have taken place. Life insurance is an important part of everyone’s financial planning. According to the Insurance

CH@TROOM Last week’s question

Do you think weather warning sirens are effective? Why or why not? What changes would you make to the warning system? “You should only have sirens for tornados, because most people can’t remember the different signals for tornados and thunder storms.” N.P. “With everone’s widows closed and air conditioners on no one can hear the sirens, especially if sleeping at night. During the time people are awake usually the TV is on and their are plenty warnings given via television.” L.S. “The warning sirens are not effective because they are used too often. We really don’t need to know about every thunderstorm. Save them for tornadoes – familiarity breeds contempt!” D.H. “I live in an area that has an effective system, for which I am extremely grateful. When I hear the siren I turn on the TV for updates and plan accordingly. “Some people complain that they hear sirens too frequently for storms that are not life-threatening. I prefer to err on safety’s side. S.J.P. “I do not believe they are very effective. I live relatively close to the siren near Wilson School and

Information Institute about 68 million Americans do not carry enough life insurance. Typically, the younger and healthier you are, the less you will pay for coverage. Delaying the decision to carry an individual life insurance policy can jeopardize your ability to obtain life insurance later in life. Life-changing events such as having a new baby, getting married or buying a new home are also reasons for people to consider reviewing their life insurance needs. In the unfortunate event of a tragedy, the life insurance proceeds can help your family pay bills, plan for future needs, pay final expenses and help your loved ones maintain their standard of living. With all the talk about health care reform do not overlook an important part of your financial planning. Bob Beatrice Business Benefits Grandview Drive Fort Mitchell

Energy savings will go far

Boone County Public Schools now have two schools with geothermal heating and cooling. These schools are Longbranch and Cooper. This will help with lower heating and cooling bills. Taxpayers will be paying less for the schools utility bills. I think all state, local and federal governments should follow in Boone County Schools’ lead and spend our tax monies more wisely. Then budgets could be balanced better and there would be less furlough days and less layoffs. Great job, Boone County Public Schools. Terrie Pullen Westland Drive Burlington

Next question: The Post Office has announced plans to raise its price for a first class stamp from 44 cents to 46 cents, effective in January. Do you think this increase is reasonable? Why or why not? Send your response to with “chatroom” in the subject line. can hear it clearly when I am outdoors. “Inside is a different story. I am consistently surprised at how well my house dampens the sound. The same is true in a car. Even if I hear the siren, it does not tell me anything about the threat or where it is located. “I usually respond to the signs of threatening weather by checking my TV or the Internet. “I think the system of sirens is outmoded and a waste of money. In this day and age, you could send a text message to all the cell phone towers in the threat area and reach a lot more people with more accurate information. The siren system is a truly blunt instrument.” F.S.D. “I can look outside and see bad weather, as well as hear storms/rain/hail. Warning sirens would be more effective if they sounded when a funnel cloud had been spotted in an area. People are in the, ‘Boy who cried wolf’ syndrome right now, and that is dangerous.” C.A.S.

A successful legislative session I was fortunate enough to have four bills passed that I sponsored. However, it’s important to point out that no one person can pass a bill. Eventually it takes the votes of members of both parties, Democrats, Republicans and independents, in both chambers. One of the things I enjoy about my job is working with people of different parties and opinions, pursuing the common good on behalf of the Kentuckians we represent. As most of these newly passed laws are due to take effect on Thursday, July 15, let’s review some of them briefly. Senate Bill 132, which I cosponsored with Senate President Pro Tempore Katie Stine of Campbell County, accomplished an important goal with regard to education in Boone County, which we have been working on for many years. We had language inserted in the House which adds criteria for school building evaluations which includes the district’s capacity for

the current use of mobile facilities and projected enrollment growth. Hopefully when Category 4 and 5 schools are funded in the State Sen. future, this lanJohn guage will assist Schickel the Boone County District with Community its building Recorder needs. SB 19 will guest make it easier columnist for charitable pharmacies to operate with less government red tape. SB 47 will require inmates to shoulder some of the responsibility for their medical care, saving county taxpayers millions of dollars. SB 32 will save taxpayers millions more by reducing the number of frivolous inmate lawsuits, and SB 60, which was attached to House legislation, will allow prosthetists, orthotists, and pedorthists (who

make artificial limbs) to regulate themselves. I know former Sen. Dick Roeding , who had worked on this legislation for many years, was happy to see this legislation pass. Thousands of Kentuckians use these products and this law assures that they will receive the best care possible by professionalizing this industry. Thank you to my colleagues in the House, Reps. Sal Santoro and Addia Wuchner, who assisted me with this important legislation in their chamber. During these difficult times, we have worked together to focus on common-sense legislation which will streamline government and make government less intrusive in our lives. State Sen. John Schickel, R-Union, represents the 11th Senate District, which includes Boone and Gallatin Counties and part of Kenton County. He welcomes your concerns or comments toll-free at 1-800-372-7181 or online at Mailform/S011.htm.

Catherine Baker and Marea West are volunteers at the Boone County Arboretum.

West, Baker transform children’s garden The Boone County Arboretum has a strong volunteer program to help maintain the grounds enjoyed by everyone in Boone County. The volunteer program consists of all levels of gardening skills and commitment. Two highly committed volunteers in the program are Marea West and Catherine Baker. Each is an exceptional volunteer, giving so much of their time and energy. Recently, Marea and Catherine spearheaded the transformation of the arboretum’s children’s garden. More birdhouses were added, more child-friendly flowers and trees were planted, and a tee-pee is set to be built later this month. The children’s garden is a place that children of all ages can go to enjoy nature. It has an extensive perennial flower bed, consisting mostly of pollinator flowers to attract bees and butterflies.

There is a large tunnel covered in vines, a picnic table, a pioneer cabin and a bridge so you can get a great view of the garden. Marea and Catherine, along with the rest of the arboretum’s dedicated volunteers, made this transformation happen. Visit the children’s garden and see what a special place it is to take your children or grandchildren. If you would like more information on the arboretum, please visit “Catch a Star” profiles people you meet in th neighborhood who go above and beyond the call of duty to “wow” you, their customer. It could be that helpful sales clerk, the friendly waitress or even the cop or firefighter who took extra time to help you. Here’s your chance to show your appreciation and give that star in the neighborhood a place in the spotlight. Just call 578-1059 or e-mail to make your nomination.

Teens from the Boone County area competed in the 4-H District threehorse competition held June 4-6 at Lakeside arena in Frankfort. Although Boone County competitors have done well in the past, especially in the last two years, they outdid themselves this year, taking 17 of the 42 qualifying slots for High Point and Reserve High Point, or first and second places in different categories. “This group of kids are pretty good,” said Steve Conrad, 4-H Youth Development Agent for Boone County. “There are 15 counties that compete to earn the right to show in the state competition, which is going on right now, and our kids did very well. Traditionally we have been the high point county in the district, and last year we got 13 slots, so 17 is even better.” He attributes the success to the girls taking the competition more seriously, and working harder. “These girls definitely work harder, but they also have dedicated parents,” he explained. “Being in 4-H helps, because the organization teaches responsibility, independence, and how to get along with everybody.” Some of the girls have been riding for a long time. “I have been riding since I was 2, and my uncle put me on the horse in front of him,” said 15-year-old Hannah Himmelmann of Hebron. “By 4 I was riding by myself. My horse is Box C Hobo Hope Skip, but I call him Skippy. He is a registered Paint, and I bought him with my own money after the horse I was riding died. Skippy is pretty much my first thought every day, and I try to ride every day. He is like my baby, and I love him!” Hannah’s mother, Cathy, is very proud of her daughter. “I think she and Skippy have matured together,” she said. “The competition is open to children from 9 to 18, and Hannah has been competing since she was 9. Hannah also rides with the Boone County Desperadoes, a mounted precision drill team, and she loves it. Her aunt and uncle and cousins all ride, so she has a lot of support from the family.” Hannah would like to be a large

Hannah won High Point in the Western Pleasure II category, and received a plaque, a giant ribbon, and a sash for Skippy. Morgan Restaino, 15, of Boone County won High Point in Low Hunter over Fences, and has participated in the qualifying contest for five years. “My horse is named Elegance Defined, and I got him four years ago,” said Restaino. “I have gotten High Point before, but it is always fun to win. I have trained him like my kid.

I see him every day, and think of him all the time. Even though I have been riding for a while, I still think it is exciting to ride him.” Conrad says traditionally more girls than boys are involved in the competition, even though it is open to boys and girls. “Way more young ladies across the state take part in the horse competitions,” he said. “We expect that they will do well in the state competition, too. Whatever they do, though, we are very proud of their hard work and accomplishments.”

Some factors involved in becoming mature Consider, “If you find that your challenges balloon out when you think they should be diminishing; if you feel too tired to get up again but realize that life never lets you down very long; if life is even less fair than they warned you it would be; well, you are probably quite healthy and normal.” So writes psychologist Dr. Eugene Kennedy. What he’s expressing are some of the elements involved in becoming mature. When we’re young we think that becoming mature means that troubles level off and we’re more in control of life. The truth is that the difference between an adolescent and a mature adult is not that the adult has fewer problems. Rather, it’s because the

adult – if he or she is actually becoming m o r e mature – becomes m o r e ccomFather Lou aplished in Guntzelman coping. Coping Perspectives means figuring out healthy ways of dealing with the problems of life rather than seeking escapes from them. Mature adults come to realize, at least in some subtle way, that how we handle our problems and pressures is what brings about maturation. It may sound paradoxical, but Carl Jung said, “Man needs difficulties; they are

necessary for health.” The Aztecs had a saying: “A boy remains a boy until there is need of a man.” The same for all of us. The vexation and pain of our own problems powerfully show us the need for a mature man or woman to be standing in our shoes. If we’re courageous, we rise to the occasion. If we’re wimpy we opt out with some excuse, get high, or get lost in the world of technology. The contradictions, pressures and inconsistencies of life are the midwives that give birth to many precious human qualities. Jung also noted, “The serious problems of life are never solved, and if they seem to have been solved, something humanly important has been lost.”

Health department offers diabetes workshop If you have diabetes or pre-diabetes, the Northern Kentucky Health Department’s diabetes program is holding a free workshop for you to learn more about the disorder. The workshop will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 17, at the Burlington Pharmacy Health Care, 5555 North Bend Road, Burlington. Lunch will be provided free of charge. Registration is required. Topics will include: what is diabetes, healthy eating,

complications and more. The workshop will be led by a registered nurse and a registered dietitian from the Health Department. To register for the workshop, or for more informa-

Another important factor in becoming mature is learning how to balance. To be mature is not a matter of getting 100 on some kind of Life Test. It is rather a balancing of the demands of life so that A equals B equals C. These alphabet letters, of course, represent various ingredients of a healthy life which have to be integrated in a reasonably harmonious balance. What are the ingredients that need balancing? Aspects such as self and others, gratification and discipline, bodily needs and spiritual needs, intellect and emotions, action and reflection, self-assertion and

respect for others and the demands of relationships. The over-riding goal is to become more human. Do the young have a more rugged road? Is it more difficult for most people to mature today? Author Joseph Gallagher thinks so. He writes; “The pressure problem of many people today is the problem of toomuch-ness… Too much noise, too much news, too many distractions, too many meetings, too many memos, too many social obligations, too many expectations, etc.” These make it more difficult to cope in a healthy way. Some of us opt out of

Zucchini: The other green summertime vegetable Last week it was all about pickling cucumbers. This week the requests are pouring in for zucchini bread recipes. T h e ones I’m sharing today are in my “Recipe Hall of Fame.� These are Rita the most Heikenfeld requested, especially Rita’s kitchen this time of year. The zucchini, like everything else in my garden, is a couple weeks early and I’m already picking every day. With county fairs coming up, I’ve had lots of requests for zucchini bread recipes that, as one reader said, “will win me that elusive ribbon.� One of the recipes I’m sharing today did just that: It won a blue ribbon for Susan Zugohoer, a Northern Kentucky reader. She shared her recipe several years ago and it’s a popular one. How’s that for a testimonial?

Susan’s blue ribbon zucchini bread

3 cups finely grated zucchini (squeeze moisture out before measuring) 3 cups sugar 11â „2 cups vegetable oil 4 eggs 3 cups flour 11â „2 teaspoons cinnamon 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 â „2 teaspoon salt 1 cup chopped nuts Grease and flour 9-by-13 pan or 3 loaf pans. Mix zucchini, sugar, oil and eggs. Beat two minutes. Combine dry ingredients. Add to mixture and blend well. Add nuts. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to one hour or until done. If desired, frost with cream cheese icing.

are good made as muffins/ cupcakes. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Check after 20 minutes.

Butterscotch zucchini bread LISA J. MAUCH/STAFF

My editor Lisa Mauch’s version of the recipe for chocolate zucchini bread/cake. 11⠄2 cups shredded zucchini (squeeze moisture out before measuring) 1 cup flour 1 ⠄2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 ⠄4 teaspoon baking powder 1 ⠄4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 ⠄4 teaspoon allspice 1 ⠄2 cup canola oil 1 ⠄2 cup sugar 1 ⠄2 cup light brown sugar 2 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 3 ⠄4 to 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (mini chips are nice)

Preheat oven to 350. Spray 9-by-5 loaf pan. Set aside shredded zucchini. Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and allspice. Set aside. Beat oil, sugars, eggs, and vanilla until well blended, and fold in zucchini. Add flour mixture, mixing just until combined. Fold in chips. Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 55 to 65 minutes. Place on wire rack to cool 10 minutes, then remove and finish cooling. Variation: These also

I baked one pan for 50 minutes – it looked great coming out of the oven, but it sunk in the middle when it cooled, a sure indication of underbaking. 3 eggs 1 cup oil 2 teaspoons vanilla (I used 1 tablespoon) 2 cups sugar 2 cups grated zucchini (squeeze moisture out before measuring) 2 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 ⠄4 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 or 2 teaspoons cinnamon (I used 2) 1 ⠄2 teaspoon ginger 1 ⠄2 teaspoon nutmeg 1 ⠄2 cup rolled oats

Summer heat poses potential health risks With the summer heat continuing, issues like overexertion, heat stroke and dehydration have become important public health concerns. “Summer weather is inviting and encourages

many of us to spend more time outdoors, but the rising temperatures also present serious health concerns,� said Department for Public Health Commissioner Dr. William Hacker. “Everyone should follow

simple precautions that keep us safe from heatrelated illness and injury.� According to DPH, following these precautions can make the difference between just being hot or being seriously ill:

• Stay cool indoors. The most efficient way to beat the heat is to stay in an airconditioned area. If you do not have an air conditioner, consider visiting a mall or public library. • Carefully schedule outdoor activities. If you must be out in the heat, try to plan your activities so that you are outdoors either before noon or in the evening. Rest periodically so your body’s thermostat will have a chance to recover. • Drink plenty of fluids.

Increase your normal fluid intake regardless of your activity level. You will need to drink more fluids than your thirst level indicates. This is especially true for people age 65 or older who often have a decreased ability to respond to external temperature changes. In addition, avoid drinking beverages containing alcohol because they will actually cause you to lose more fluid. • Wear appropriate clothing and sunscreen. Choose lightweight, light-

colored, loose-fitting clothing. In the hot sun, wear a wide-brimmed hat that will provide shade and keep the head cool. Sunscreen should be SPF 15 or greater and applied 30 minutes before going out into the sun. • Use a buddy system. When working in the heat, monitor the condition of your co-workers and have someone do the same for you. Heat-induced illness can cause a person to become confused or lose consciousness.

It’s about comfort‌. it’s about caring‌it’s about support for the patient and family.   c ^^^Z[LSPaHIL[OJVTOVZWPJL We can’t control the amount of time someone has left, but we can add to the quality of that time.

Students get Broadway master class Progressions Dance Studio students train hard with the dreams of one day performing on Broadway stages. Recently these students moved one step closer to their dreams. Through Broadway Connection, a company connecting students with Broadway performers, the students took part in an educational master class taught by Sara Andreas of the Broadway tour, “Legally Blonde.” Catherine Smith, director of Progressions Dance Studio, offered her students the exclusive Broadway Musical Theatre Master Class to allow them to train with a world class teacher in their home studio. During the master class, students polished their dance technique and received insider information on current Broadway shows and auditions. Students learned how to stand out in front of directors, choreographers and professors and land the job or dream

school. The master class included a Broadway Connection Q & A where students asked individual questions and received detailed advice on current auditions, Broadway trends, university programs and dance companies. Smith said she loves bringing in professional, Broadway caliber teachers to bring “a new and inspiring learning experience to her dancers.” Founders of Broadway Connection Jennifer Jancuska and Melissa Harres are proud to give students a new, full-circle learning experience. Jancuska believes “taking class with a current Broadway performer, gaining first-hand professional advice and then experiencing the show is a very special and inspiring opportunity for all students.” Broadway Connection provides students a costeffective way to connect with Broadway professionals and teachers in their home school.

Potato beetle develops resistance Question: How can I get rid of potato beetles? They are eating my potatoes, tomatoes and peppers. Answer: Many people have been asking that question. The common black and yellow-striped “potato bug,” a very familiar insect to home gardeners, is the most serious insect pest of potatoes. Both the striped beetle and the black-spotted, red larva feed on potato leaves. Their damage can greatly reduce yield and even kill plants. In addition to potato, Colorado potato beetle can be a serious pest of tomato, eggplant, and pepper. The Colorado potato beetle is notorious for its ability to rapidly develop resistance to insecticides that are used repeatedly for control. This has been a serious problem on the east coast for some time, and is becoming more of a problem in Kentucky.

With a limited number of insecticides available, some homeowners feel they Horticulture h a v e Concerns e x h a u s t e d their control Mike Klahr o p t i o n s when it becomes resistant to one or more insecticides, such as Sevin. Colorado potato beetles overwinter in the soil as adults. They become active in the spring as temperatures rise and begin to feed on weeds and volunteer or early planted potatoes, even entering the soil to attack emerging foliage. Female beetles lay orange-yellow eggs in batches of about two dozen on the underside of the leaves. Each female can lay 500 or more eggs over a four- to five-week period. Eggs

hatch in four to nine days and the larvae begin to feed on potato foliage. The larvae are humpbacked with two rows of black spots on each side. They usually feed in groups and damage can be severe. The larval stage lasts two to three weeks. Full-grown larvae burrow in the ground to pupate. In five to 10 days, the adult beetle emerges. This insect can go from egg to adult in as little as 21 days. The newly emerged adult female feeds for a few days before egg laying begins. There are two full and occasionally a partial third generation each year. If foliar sprays are used, an effort should be made to treat just after most eggs have hatched but before serious plant damage occurs. It is important to rotate pesticides to prevent resistance from building up within the beetle population.

Durr Foundation aids housing group said Jock Pitts, president of PWC. “By receiving grants like this, foundations are acknowledging the need exists and PWC is the organization to provide the services. We are extremely pleased to be selected to address this need.” The grant from the Northern Kentucky Family of Funds at The Greater Cincinnati Foundation will allow PWC to provide home repairs and modifications in Northern Kentucky while the grant from the Weathering the Economic Storm Fund will be used to provide assistance with emergency home repairs and energy conservation for low income homes in both Northern Kentucky and Ohio. The grant was awarded as part of the “Weathering the Economic Storm” initiative created by GCF, a community-wide response to help individuals, families and nonprofit organizations move toward economic stability.

In full swing of its 35th anniversary year, People Working Cooperatively announced it has secured more than $100,000 in grant funds to carry out its mission to repair the community one home at a time, specifically in Northern Kentucky. PWC received three separate grants: two from The Greater Cincinnati Foundation (GCF) and one from The R.C. Durr Foundation Inc. to provide its services in Northern Kentucky. PWC received a grant of $50,000 from the Weathering the Economic Storm Fund, a partnership of funders, managed by The Greater Cincinnati Foundation. In addition, PWC received a grant of $60,000 from the Northern Kentucky Family of Funds at The Greater Cincinnati Foundation and $15,000 from The R.C. Durr Foundation Inc. “We’ve seen a great increase in the need for our services, especially in the Northern Kentucky region”

For example, use Imidan one week, Sevin the next, then New Spectracide, then Methoxychlor or Thiodan. Azatin, an insect growth regulator, may also be used. An extract of the seed of the neem tree, Azatin prevents the potato beetle larvae from developing normally. Bacillius thuringiensis var tenebrionis (Bt) is an organic spray that’s effective against small larvae (less than 1⁄4 inch) and should be applied at egg hatch or when larvae are first seen. A premature treatment may lose much of its effectiveness before the eggs hatch. Mike Klahr is the Boone County Extension Agent for Horticulture.

Send your child right food messages

We hear it a lot. My child won’t eat or will only eat (insert the name of the food here). Raising children in today’s busy and harried world can be challenging. Raising healthy children with a robust sense of

adventure when it comes to food can seem even more challenging. What messages are you sending to the children in your life about food? Is food regulated? Is it available anytime anywhere? Are you a short-order cook for

each of the family meals? Do you make negative comments when faced with some foods? Do you avoid offering some foods because you just don’t like them? Do you tell a child “you won’t like that” before they have even tried it?

As author Dorothy Law Nolte once shared, “children learn what they live.” While she may not have been specifically talking about food, the thought fits. How adults approach food has a direct effect on the child’s perception of foods. As Ellen Satter researched and wrote in her books on feeding children,

And, if the adult ultimately gives in to the child’s demands, there is a lifelong lesson being learned by the child. Food jags are common during childhood. Keep in mind that children will eat when they are hungry. They also will generally eat the amount of foods they need. It is the responsibility of the adult to ensure the foods presented will provide adequate nutrition for the growing child. Meals and snacks should include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and dairy products. Diane Mason is county extension agent for family and consumer sciences at the Boone County Cooperative Extension Service.

Grant to supply fans As the summer heat continues, the Duke Energy Foundation and United Way of Greater Cincinnati are partnering to bring welcome relief to those who need it most. Duke Energy Foundation is providing a $20,000 grant to buy fans and air conditioners for elderly, low-income and disabled residents of the region. United Way will administer the program, distributing funds to nonprofit agencies that serve the needs of those populations. The Cincinnati Enquirer reported recently that agencies could not meet the demand for cooling equipment in the face of the extreme temperatures the area has been experiencing. After learning of the need, Duke Energy reached out to help. “The high temperatures and high humidity can cause more than discomfort; they also can cause or aggravate health problems,” said Karen Monday, vice president of Foundation for Duke Energy. “We were

happy to work with our community partner, United Way, to help alleviate those problems.” Individuals that have a need can call United Way 211, United Way’s 24hours-a-day, 7-days-aweek health and social services information and referral helpline, by dialing 2-1-1 or contact their local United Way office directly for a list of agencies that will be distributing the fans and air conditioners. Funds will be available in Duke Energy’s service territory of Southwestern Ohio and Northern Kentucky. “We are grateful to Duke Energy for this generous contribution in response to a clear community need,” said Robert C. Reifsnyder, president, United Way of Greater Cincinnati. “The fans and air conditioners that can be purchased through this donation will help ease health and safety concerns for people who don’t now have access to equipment that can keep them cool in times of heat emergencies.”

there are food responsibilities that are divided between the adult and child. The adult is responsible for what, when, and where the child eats. This means healthy foods are offered in a positive atmosphere on a regular basis or schedule. The child is responsible for how much is eaten and whether or not they eat when food is presented. This means they may eat a lot at one meal and nothing at the next. However, they should learn to sit at the table and be a part of the family meal time whether or not they choose to eat. Fights about food occur when children feel pressured to eat. Control issues come into play when adults given into the children’s demands. Adults should not become short-order cooks and fix different foods for each member of the family (unless there are special dietary issues involved). Food should not be accessible all day, every day; there should be established meal and snack times. Additionally, there should be specific locations where foods may be consumed while seated, preferably not in front of a television or computer that is on.

Barn features ‘Country Roads’ Ping, Sharon Ping, and Teresa and Jeff Ping purchased the barn board as a present for Fran and Fred. The Baums have lived on this farm for 33 years. They purchased it from Louis and Georgia Ryle. J.V. Grimsley built the farmstead in the late 1800s. There is

Time for some midsummer ‘yardening’ tips Is it just me, or have we been getting hit with some fairly powerful, quick, passthrough storms, more than ever? A couple of things to consider when these come through: 1.) How much rain has your yard actually received? Some have been absolute downpours while others are quick and spotty. Make sure you have a rain gauge in your yard so that you know exactly how much rainfall your yard gets each week. That way you’ll know if you need to water or not, based on the old rule of 1 inch rainfall every 10 days or so for optimum plant growth. 2.) With severe storms, lightning and high winds, there is usually a good chance for breakage/limb damages to your trees. After these storms blow through, be sure to walk around the yard and examine each tree looking for broken or cracked limbs. If you see something, or are not quite sure, call in a certified arborist to evaluate the situation and then correct the problem. To find a certified arborist in your area, ask your local independent garden store or local landscape firm for referrals, or visit As we cruise into the month of July, here are a few timely “yardening” tips: Keep watering as needed – As a general rule of thumb, for optimum growing conditions, established plants (and turf) would like about an inch of rainfall every 10 days to 2 weeks. If Mother Nature doesn’t come through (check your rain gauge – you do have a rain gauge, right?), then you need to supplement as needed. For established trees,

evergreens and shrubs, try using a Ross root feeder. For landscape beds, stationary sprinklers or soaker hoses work great. And don’t forget “GatorBags” (like the Treegator brand) for watering newly planted trees (up to 3-4 inch diameter). Remember to water deeply and thoroughly each time you water. Pinch mums and asters for the last time by no later than July 15. Keep deadheading those spent flowers on annuals and perennials to encourage more new growth and more flowers. Cut back leggy annuals to rejuvenate the plants. Keep planting fresh annuals for great summer colors, as well as blooming perennials. Apply grub preventers to the lawn if needed. Late July and August are the perfect times for digging, dividing and moving iris and peonies. Be sure to feed roses, perennials, annuals, veggies, etc. as needed. Keep fluffing the mulch to prevent crusting of the top layer. Mulch helps to prevent weeds, control soil temperatures and helps maintain soil moisture. Watch for infestations of Japanese beetles. Hosing off the early scouts and females may help keep them moving on. Spraying insecticides is limiting in controls - be sure to spray when bees are not present. Hand pick beetles, or knock them off into a bucket of soapy water. Temporary covering of plants with cheesecloth may also help. If you have potted plants, going away for a few days can be a problem. Who’s going to water the plants? Here are a few tips to help: • Group pots together in

the shade • Use Soil Moist in the soil • Water plants just before you leave • This may be one time you can use saucers underneath your potted plants to hold extra water • Use “AquaCones” or something similar to help drip water while you’re away.

Heroes for Home


Seven Boy Scouts and six leaders from Troop 1 chartered by Florence Christian Church supported the Heroes for Home program by raising funds through a bake sale at the Sears Outlet store in Florence. The Heroes for Home program is designed to improve the lives of American military families in need by making necessary repairs, improvements or modifications to their homes. All funds generated by the bake sale were donated to the program. Youth participants were: Andrew Murton, Dustin Sexton, Ethan Harper, David McDaniel, Drew McDaniel, Gary Deadmond, and Steven Boemker . Troop 1 meets every Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Florence Christian Church.

Sanitation District 1 honors local environmental heroes The 2010 Protecting the Environment Award ceremony was held on June 29 at Twenhofel Middle School. The award ceremony recognized three Scout troops, six teachers and three individual students who have gone above and beyond to protect the environment and water resources in Northern Kentucky. For the second year in a row, the $2,500 in cash prizes was sponsored by Walmart in Fort Wright. Additional event needs and prizes were donated by John R. Green Co. of Covington, Kenton County School District, Kroger of Erlanger, Meijer of Florence, Natorp's Garden Stores of Florence, Panera Bread of Crestview Hills, and the WAVE Foundation at the Newport Aquarium. The Scout troop winners have committed to completing projects with an emphasis on education and environmental service during the 2010-2011 school year. The recipients were:

• Boy Scout Troop 727 of Burlington, $500 to complete a Gunpowder Creek cleanup. • Girl Scout Troop 281 of Alexandria, $500 to install a rain garden at the Campbell County Environmental Education Center. • Girl Scout Troop 9216 of Campbell County, $300 to install a rain garden at Cline Elementary School. Six local teachers were awarded $200 mini-grants to purchase supplies for teaching water-related topics to their classes next school year: • Laura Dennemann, St. Thomas School. Project: curriculum that focuses on global water awareness. • Anita France, Immaculate Heart of Mary School. Project: Boone Woods Park creek testing. • Lisa Handlon, Taylor Mill Elementary. Project: school wetland planting, monitoring and curriculum. • Dr. Karen Keefer, Sanders Home School. Project: storm water curriculum and installing pond

All three boys attend Sanders Home School. SD1 has hosted the Protecting the Environment Award program since 2003. The purpose of the program is to get local individuals and groups involved in protecting the environment in Northern Kentucky, specifically our water resources. The program rewards those who are making a positive environmental and community impact through education and service.

Beshears back education center at Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall Gov. Steve Beshear invoked the sacrifice of more than 1,100 Kentuckians in the Vietnam War, and the memory of all those who served during that conflict, in announcing that he has joined the leadership team of The Education Center at The Wall. “With Memorial Day upon us, I am proud to join in this effort to honor and recognize those who sacrificed everything for our country,” Beshear said at the Kentucky Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The Education Center is an underground facility being built on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., that will put faces to the more than 58,000 names on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The Center will tell the stories of those who served in Vietnam and recognize the values common to all service members. “We are elated to have Gov. Beshear’s support in this campaign,” said Jan

Scruggs, founder and president of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund. “As a part of our membership team, he will work to honor Kentucky’s veterans who lost their lives in Vietnam by sharing their stories with future generations.” Scruggs noted that Kentucky is a national leader in securing benefits and provides services to many of its 339,000 veterans, including 115,300 Vietnam-era veterans. In addition to operating three veterans nursing homes and three state veterans cemeteries, Kentucky established an award-winning program for homeless veterans and one for women veterans. Beshear joins 20 other governors on the leadership team for the Center. Members of the leadership team provide ideas, recruit supporters and lead grassroots efforts to raise awareness and gather photos of the individuals from their states whose names are on The

Wall. Today, he called on Kentucky’s major Veterans Service Organizations, including the Vietnam Veterans of America, Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Legion, AMVETS, Disabled American Veterans and others, to help the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund gather photos of the 1,058 individuals from Kentucky whose names are on the national Vietnam Veterans Memorial. (There are 1,102 names on the Kentucky Vietnam Veterans Memorial because it has a broader definition of state resident than the national memorial does.) By joining the leadership team, Beshear is helping future generations learn about our nation’s history. Currently, nearly $25 million has been raised, including the lead gift of $10 million from Time Warner. VVMF has received donations from corporations, organizations, veterans groups and individuals.
