There is good news for Florence residents who would like farm fresh vegetables and food, but can’t always make it down to the Farmers Market in Burlington. From July through September, farmers will be setting up a mini farmers market in Florence by the Boone County Public Library at U.S. 42. “We had gotten requests for a market in Florence for a while now, because some people don’t have transportation to Burlington where we have our large farmers market,” said Coy Wilson, agricultural technologist and market manager at the Boone County Extension Office. “So first of all we approached the farmers about whether there was an interest in setting up in Florence. Many of our farmers have other jobs, and not all of them can set up on Fridays,” Wilson said. The new market will be 2-6 p.m. Fridays in the small parking lot adjacent to the Florence branch of the library, 7425 U.S. 42. Wilson said about 13 farmers are interested and will display their produce. Then Wilson approached the Boone County Public Library, assuming that since the library and the extension office are both county entities, they could work together to come up with a place for the market. Greta Southard, director of the Boone County Public Library, was eager to partner with the extension office. “We’re pleased that they asked us to host the Farmers Market in Florence,” said Southard. “I think it is a wonderful project to be able to provide fresh, local food to residents of Florence who might be limited in their travel ability. The opportunity is now open for resi-

dents to walk to the market, or take the bus, and avail themselves of locally grown produce.” She noted that just next door to the market is a great source of preparing that produce. “We have all kinds of cookbooks or magazines where people can find recipes,” Southard said. “And if they aren’t familiar with a certain fruit or vegetable, they can research it.” The Florence satellite will only have locally grown and produced

food items. Wilson explained there will not be any flowers or crafts offered at this location. There will be fresh beef and pork products as well as fresh-baked goods. Wilson has been pleased with how this project has gone. He said not only has the library been very supportive, but the city of Florence has helped make the market a reality, also. Florence Mayor Diane Whalen is very happy with the market in her city.

“I would encourage our residents to visit the Florence location of the Boone County Farmers Market and try some of the wonderful, locally grown produce,” she said. “There is nothing better than a summer meal made from garden fresh vegetables. We appreciate being able to pick up our own produce at a convenient, in-town location, and hope that people who can’t make the drive to Burlington will take advantage of this opportunity.”

Lieutenant retiring from police force

By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

One of Florence’s high-ranking police officers is ready to call it quits. Lt. Pat Flaherty is retiring Aug. 1 after nearly 21 years with the Florence Police Department. In his career with the department Flaherty has seen Florence grow. “When I first started we would run the streets with three or four officers,” Flaherty said. During his time with the force, Flaherty was given a variety of assignments ranging from undercover narcotics work, to being the department’s D.A.R.E. officer. “I feel like I had a career like no other,” he said. Flaherty’s willingness to take on any assignment made him a “very valuable asset to the department,” said Chief Tom Szurlinski. Flaherty currently works as the

Florence Mayor Diane Whalen says she loves the variety of fresh fruit and vegetables at the new Florence branch of the Boone County Farmers Market. It takes place 2-6 p.m. Fridays at the Florence branch library on U.S. 42. This booth is owned and operated by Elsie Ewbanks, from a farm near Warsaw.

department’s second shift commander, and his broad range of experience made him well suited for the assignment, Szurlinski said. “He’s got some experience outside of just patrol,” he said. After two decades of working with many of the same officers, leaving his friends will be one of the most difficult parts of retiring, Flaherty said. “It’s going to be a sad day when I leave,” he said. Retirement will mean getting to spend more time with his wife and kids. “I think they’re ready for this,” Flaherty said. He knows the strange schedule of a police officer has taken time away from his family he can’t get back. “It’s been a great career, but you realize how much you miss,” Flaherty said.

Florence vets medal in wheelchair games By Justin B. Duke

Gerald Christen, a Navy veteran, participated in events like trap shooting, discus, javelin and bowling, the event where he won the silver medal.

jbduke@nky.com

Two American heroes are continuing to excel. Florence residents Gerald Christen, 64, and Michael Stutler, 48, participated in the 30th National Veterans Wheelchair Games earlier this month in Denver. Christen, a Navy veteran, participated in events like trap shooting, discus, javelin and bowling, the event where he won the silver medal. Stutler, an Air Force veteran, participated in events like discus, billiards, where he won bronze, and bowling, where he won gold. For both Stutler and Christen, the games are more than just the competi-

tion. “It’s about meeting up with old friends and making new ones,” Stutler said. After participating in the games for 21 years, Stutler has made friends from all over the country, and the games is an annual way to get together and have some friendly competition, he said. “We’re friendly until we get on the field,” Stutler joked.

While everyone wants to win, there’s more happening during the events. Opponents are rooting each other on, and everyone wants each other to do well, Stutler said. “The competition is great,” Christen said. For Christen, who started participating in the games three years ago, they mean something very important. “I’m doing things I’ve never done before or realized I could do,” Christen said. Christen learned of the games through the Paralyzed Veterans of America at a time when he was struggling. “I had kind of given up on a lot of things,” Christen said.

Turfway Road to get landscaping By Paul McKibben pmckibben@nky.com

Florence plans to beautify Turfway Road with a landscaping project. The city has received a $404,500 federal grant for the work. The city’s match is $101,100. The project consists of landscaping along the sides of the road as well as the big medians by the Interstate 75/71 overpass, Public Services Director Bob Townsend said. The project is from the intersection of Turfway Road and Dixie Highway to Thoroughbred Boulevard.

Florence City Council was expected to vote on two resolutions about the project at its July 27 meeting. Townsend said work would begin no sooner than this fall. He said it could even be next spring. He said the landscaping will be a combination of trees, shrubs and flowering plants. A renovated Turfway Road was opened in November 2007. The 1.9mile project was to go from Dixie Highway to the back entrances of Turfway Park. The state road project started in August 2005. The bid was awarded for $10.7 million.

One man’s hobby: Crashing cars By Paul McKibben pmckibben@nky.com

Gary Prather wrecks vehicles on purpose for his pastime. Prather, a Petersburg resident, will be participating in the full-sized sedan category of the demolition derby at the Boone County 4-H & Utopia Fair on Aug. 4. Prather starting racing when he was 15. He said Boone County wasn’t hosting derbies and instead he ran in Owen County at its fair. He’s now 31. Ever since Boone County has had a derby, he has had something in it, either a full-sized car or a miniature car. “It’s (an) adrenaline rush. It’s almost like legalized road-rage I guess you’d say. ... A lot of people play golf and watch football and stuff,” he said. “And I crash cars.” He has nine demolition derby cars. He’ll be racing a purple 1998 Ford Crown Victoria in the competition.

CE-0000412170

Prather explained the sport this way: A driver has to make an aggressive hit every 60 seconds. The last car running and moving wins. “The sport’s grown over the past eight or 10 years so much it’s almost like building a full-out race car to tear up,” he said. He finds his cars at impound lots and police auctions or hearing information from friends. Prather is not a full-time mechanic but does maintenance work for White Castle for a living. He’s taught himself how to repair the cars. He studied auto body at Boone County Schools’ Boone County Area Technology Center. He said for the mechanics of the motors, rear ends and transmissions, he would read some books, tear one apart and see what was in it. He takes lots of notes as he’re tearing something apart and asks questions. The back of his purple

No. 41 Crown Victoria is severely damaged from an Illinois derby this past June. He said he’ll leave the back the way it is but he’ll fix the hood on it a little bit and needs to repair an axle. The car doesn’t look safe as it has no windows and is quite bare in appearance. Prather said he hasn’t suffered any major injuries participating in a demolition derby. The only ailments he has received are soreness, cuts and bruises. Once he dislocated his knee. He wears a helmet, a fireproof race jacket and a seat belt. “It’s safer than people think,” he said. Prather’s wife Rachael, 26, is interested in the sport. She’ll be racing a gray 1985 Ford Crown Victoria in the same competition as Prather. Burlington resident Jim Rudicill is in charge of the demolition derby at the fair. He said Gary Prather is competitive and hangs right in there with the best of

Petersburg resident Gary Prather stands next to the car he will be driving during the full-sized sedans part of the demolition derby at the Boone County 4-H & Utopia Fair. them. This year’s fair has motor sports either every night or morning. Rudicill said motor sports are one of the fair’s highlights. The Prathers’ 4-year-old daughter Tiffany is part of the action. A sign on the

purple Crown Victoria’s roof says “Tiff 41.” “No matter which car we run ... you’ll find her name somewhere on the front,” Gary Prather said. Prather travels to race with events in Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois.

He said the most he has ever won is $2,500. Prather and three friends own a business called Top Dog Promotions, a company that organizes demolition derbies at several county fairs in Kentucky, including Kenton County.

BRIEFLY Davis leads in cash

U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis, RHebron, and his Democratic challenger, John Waltz of Florence, each raised roughly the same amount of money during the second quarter of the year, but Davis ended it with much more cash on hand. Waltz raised $117,150 from April 29 to June 30, according to campaign finance records, and Davis raised $115,985. Waltz, who entered the race in March, criticized Davis for failing to outraise him and accused Davis of “taking his job for granted.” “Between the voting schedule in Washington, traveling the district and talking about the issues with Kentuckians, and the death of his father (in May), the congressman’s focus has been on his constituents and his family,” said Davis campaign spokeswoman Brook Hougesen. “As always, our team takes nothing for granted and we are confident we will have the resources to deliver our message to voters this fall,” Hougesen said. Davis has outraised Waltz overall, raising $995,000 to Waltz’s $249,000. Davis also has more cash on hand. He ended the second quarter with about $810,000; Waltz had $102,000. Kentucky News Service

The average selling price was $157,640 in June. The price was $166,085 in August 2008. The median price in June was $133,500. That is also the highest since August 2008 when the number was $138,000. “Overall, June was one of the most encouraging months we have had in some time and we are excited that the entire range of numbers paints a picture of stability,” said in a statement Rebecca Trout, the association’s president.

Unemployment falls

The unemployment rate in the Northern Kentucky region dipped slightly in June, falling to 10.3 percent in the month, according to the state’s Education and Workforce Development Cabinet. The rate compares with 10.5 percent in May and with 10.4 percent in June 2009. The Northern Kentucky region consists of Boone, Campbell, Carroll, Gallatin, Grant, Kenton, Owen, and Pendleton counties.

Early school start works for Walton-Verona district By Patricia A. Scheyer

Community Recorder Contributor

For about the last 10 years, the Walton-Verona school district has initiated their school year a little earlier than the other schools in Boone County, and this year students will begin school on Tuesday, Aug. 10. The main reason for the earlier

start was to compile as many instructional days as possible before the state testing in the spring. But school officials have found that the early start works well for the district and the community. “We held several community forums, and assessed our survey forms to find out what the community wanted,” said Superinten-

dent Bill Boyle, who has been head of Walton-Verona schools for seven years. “We considered year-round schooling, but found that the community did not want that. This system is what the community likes, and we just completed another survey which confirms that people still want this system.” The state of Kentucky man-

School starts Aug. 10. dates that schools have 176 instructional days in a school year, and more for the teachers. Boyle said by starting about a week earlier than the other schools, Walton-Verona schools can incorporate a fall break, which usually falls the first week of October. “Parents like the break because they can schedule vacations, or other special things during that time,” said Pam Sayler, assistant superintendent for the district. “They can get better rates at resorts, because it is off season. And students come back refreshed. Research has shown that students do better in school when they have more breaks throughout the school year. Results are improved attendance and lower incidents of bad behavior.” The early start and subsequent fall break has not hurt the school district, which encompasses about 1,400 students. “Our test scores are in the top 10 in the state,” Boyle said. “I do think that our early start schedule

is a factor in the continuing high scores. So are our high standards, and expectations. But our students definitely look forward to the fall break, and I think they come back ready to learn.” Most of the students take the early start in stride. “We’re used to it by now,” said Radleigh Wakefield, 17, who is ready for his senior year. “I don’t mind because we get a fall break.” Kyla Edmondson, also 17 and a senior, agrees. “We are actually starting two days later than last year,” she said with a laugh. Sayler lists the benefits of starting earlier as less regression of the children’s knowledge over the summer, more instructional days, and better morale and attitudes because of the breaks. She added that many former students have their children in Walton-Verona now. “We seem to be on a successful path,” said Boyle. “We try to keep a small school feel, even though we are growing.”

Boone teams return to city tourney By James Weber jweber@nky.com

From left: Front row, Hunter Jacobs, Ryan Principata, Benji Rollins and Ben Faulkner; middle row, Brycen Kanarek, Josh Puthoff, Tyler Ollier, Justin Schlarman, Braydon Runion and Cody Lonkard; back row, Seth Collins, Bradley Rice. Not pictured: Jake Chisolm

Two Boone County teams are making return trips to the Knothole Division 2 city finals this week. For one team, it is a repeat journey from last year’s youth baseball finals. Another team had to wait four years to get back. Both the Gold Star Chili Tigers and the Gators won their opening game July 24 at the Blue Ash Sports Complex in Cincinnati. They were part of a perfect 6-0 start for all the Northern Kentucky regional champions. Both Boone teams were set to play a semifinal Tuesday, July 27, in the doubleelimination tournament. The championships will be decided Saturday, July 31, at Blue Ash. John Schlarman’s Gators team stayed undefeated in Class C-Junior. The group of U10 players are from Florence and Walton. “This year the key to the

success is pitching,” Schlarman said. “We’ve had seven or eight shutouts. Most of the games have been run-ruled.” Players are Hunter Jacobs, Ryan Principata, Benji Rollins, Ben Faulkner, Brycen Kanarek, Josh Puthoff, Tyler Ollier, Justin Schlarman, Braydon Runion, Cody Lonkard, Seth Collins, Bradley Rice and Jake Chisolm. The Gators went 1-2 in the city finals last year in D. “The bats are coming around,” Schlarman said. “It’s a lot different in the city. All the kids can hit the ball, so our bats need to come around a bit.” The Gold Star Chili Tigers are contending for the title in Class A, the oldest age group. Kevin Rengering’s group of 14-15 year olds from Florence and Union played in the city finals in 2006 in Class C. They finished second to the Mt. Orab Mavericks that year, and were set to play that same team July 27 in

the winner’s bracket. “Five of them have been together 10 years,” Rengering said. “They have been playing together for so long, they all know their strengths and weaknesses. They pick up each other and they know what they’re capable of doing, so they don’t panic.” The Tigers are 18-1 after winning July 24, and are a balanced team, Rengering said. They will head to high school at Ryle, St. Henry, Covington Catholic and Beechwood this fall. Members are Ben Allen, Ryan Rengering, Craig Rose, Nick Bessler, Cody Warren, Mitchell Humphrey, Eric Anderson, Tanner Clifton, Ben Kabzinski, Connor Schierloh, Lee Craven and Chris Brown. Assistant coaches are Craig Rengering, Rob Clifton, Pete Schierloh, and Ben Allen. Anderson, Allen, Schierloh, Rengering and Rose are the five who have been on this same team for 10 years.

Karate kids win national medals The competition team from The Masters Martial Arts Academy in Florence had a stellar showing at the 2010 AAU National Karate Championships in Albany, N.Y., in early July. The national championships are the culmination of the competition year for AAU karate including state and regional tournaments all over the United States. There were well over 1,000 competitors at the nationals, and the small group of seven competitors from the Florence dojo brought home a total of 17 medals out of a possible 21 at the competition. There were three events for each of the competitors, including kata (a choreographed series of moves showcasing form and technique), weapons (a series of moves with a bow staff or other martial arts weapon), and sparring. Brian Chu, a 6-year old novice (second-year student) from Union, won gold medals in kata and weapons, and a silver in sparring. Makayla Newton, a 6year old beginner (first-year student) from Union, won

bronze medals in kata and sparring and a silver medal in weapons. Her older sister, Sierra Newton, a 10-year old beginner, won gold medals in kata and weapons, and a bronze medal in sparring. Elizabeth Davis, a 10year old novice from Lakeside Park, won gold medals in kata and weapons, and a silver in sparring. She was national champion in 2009 in weapons and sparring. Shane Scott from Florence, a 10-year old novice, won silver medals in weapons and sparring. Zach Vagedes, a 17-year old novice from Union, won gold medals in weapons and sparring, and a bronze medal in kata. Danny Ballow, a 10-year old advanced student from Fort Mitchell, also competed but did not finish in the top three in his division. Overall, the team came home with eight gold medals, and the national champion title that goes with them. They also collected five silver and four bronze. The team is trained by sensei Steve Napier and coached by Andy Henchy.

Four local men will travel to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, for the 2010 World Horseshoe Pitching Championships, which began July 26 and continue through Aug. 7. Donald Fleissner of California, Dick Ellis of Fort Mitchell, Mitch Duncan of Independence and Henry Bass of Florence will compete in their age groups and divisions for a chance to win trophies, prize money, and bragging rights. The chance to compete at this level is reward enough for these men. Bass, 87, is making his 15th trip to the World Championships. He placed fourth in his division last year. Ellis, Bass, and Duncan pitch together on Tuesday nights at Boone Woods Park. During the winter, they pitch in an indoor league in Cincinnati. The competition and camaraderie keep the sport interesting. “Pitching horseshoes is something that I like to do,” Ellis said. He credits Bass with inspiring him to join the competitive circuit. To qualify for Worlds, one must pitch in at least four sanctioned tournaments in the past year. The National Horseshoe Pitchers Association regulates the tournaments and then places each pitcher into a division at Worlds based on his or her ringer average. Bass said his average is 67 percent. The top six pitchers in each division earn a prize at the end of the competition. Each man will pitch five games a day for three days while they are in Cedar Rapids. Bass, Ellis, and Duncan. They are looking for sponsors to help cover their travel and tournament entry expenses. “We each have 15 games in three days and hope to win them all,” said

Bass. Bass is 87 years young and manages to feed his competitive fire on a regular basis. He bowls two days a week in the winter (and averages a 170 score), and pitches horseshoes yearround all over the state of Kentucky. He and Duncan, 62, drive south every Saturday to pitch horseshoes in Mount Sterling, Cumber-

land, and other areas. Bass played basketball and football in his younger days. He played competitive softball for many years, competing at the softball world championships in St. Louis in 1979. He has been pitching horseshoes competitively for 15 years. The trio of Bass, Duncan, and Ellis plan on departing from Northern Kentucky

Trip to D.C. was an honor (Editor’s note: Donald Lainhart recently visited the World War II Memorial as a guest of Honor Flight Tri-State. Honor Flight was created to honor America’s veterans for their sacrifices. They transport them to Washington, D.C., to visit and reflect at their memorials. Here are Lainhart’s recollections of the trip.)

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Knights say no to littering Mountain Dew

The Boone County Pee Wee Football team, The Knights, picked up trash on three miles of Boone County roads on July 24. We had an enthusiastic group of about 30 parents and football players. We set out at 9 a.m. on Saturday morning. Our route was Sam Neace from Weaver to Mt. Zion, Empire Connector and Technology Way. Technology Way was the cleanest of the three roads we picked up trash on, only finding about a 1/2 bag of liter. Sam Neace and Empire Road was another story! This two-mile stretch (up one side and down the other) was littered with all sorts of trash from cans, bottles, car mats, wrappers and tons and tons of cigarette butts. We collected 10 bags of trash on this two-mile road. The biggest joke of the day was how many Mountain Dew bottles and cans we found. By far, empty Mountain Dew cans and bottles were found 20 times more often than any other brand. So, calling all you Mountain Dew drinkers: Throw your trash in the can and not on the roads.

Wasting money

Why is it that everyone is out of money and must cut back on everyday expenses, except for the city of Florence? Does anyone think that spending $500,000 on landscaping Turfway Road a bit outlandish? With all the money being spent in Florence these days, one might think that the council and mayor might get tired of spending. But no, they are full spend ahead. Remember even if the money comes through a grant, it is still taxpayers’ money. This group of spend-a-holics must be stopped and the only way to stop them is to elect new, more conservative people to council. It is time to take back control of your council, elect people who won’t spend your money on wasteful projects such as landscaping. Larry Braden Kathryn Avenue Florence

Keep Boone County clean

We are the Tigers, a senior division team in the Boone County Pee Wee Football League. We are proud to say we had the opportunity this past weekend, July 17, to help our community and take part in the local “Trash for Cash.” We had 24 volunteers picking up 6 miles of trash in the Boone County area. This was a great opportunity for the kids to see that littering is a huge issue in Boone County. The majority of our trash was cigarettes, pop bottles and fast food containers. These are all things that could easily be thrown away in a trash can and not on the ground. What really surprised the kids is a dirty diaper on the side of the road. We picked up in an industrial area and you would think people would clean up after themselves. There are trash cans at all the business and a United Dairy Farmers with a restroom and garbage cans. The kids could not believe that people would be that lazy. They were wondering what kind of person would want to dirty their community. This was a real eyeopener for the children and the parents that helped. It was very disgusting picking up used items that even the children new to put trash in the garbage. We live in a beautiful county, please help keep it clean. Amy Deason B.C.P.W.F.L. Tigers Football Team Mom Surfwood Dr Florence

My day started at the Windgate Hotel in Blue Ash, Ohio, at 5:15 in the morning with registering Donald in, instructions, Lainhart a name tag and Community T-shirt. BreakRecorder fast was danish and coffee. All I guest needed to take columnist was my driver’s license and medicine. I would not need money. There were 109 on the tour, 83 veterans and 26 staff and guardians. My itinerary was to Columbus Ohio, plane to Baltimore, tour bus from Baltimore to around Washington, D.C. There was a guardian for each veteran in a wheelchair or who needed help walking. These people pay their own way and I’ve never seen handicap receive better care. They were on top of everything. The bus trip to Columbus was filled with talk of branch of service, home and what was ahead plus a very good video of the construction of the memorial. The plane trip to Baltimore sure brought back memories. This was my first flight since leaving the service. I had forgotten the noise of takeoff. How beautiful the clouds are. As we left the plane and entered the rotunda of the airport there was a huge crowd of people who gave us a real ovation from the first veteran to the last. I’ll admit I teared up and so did several of the other veterans. Our stop at the World War II Memorial cannot be explained in

There is just a feeling you get as you stand before the Wall of Stars, the column of your state, read the names of the major battles, the comments of the important people of the time. Then look across the Reflecting Pool at the Lincoln Memorial, turn around and look at the Washington Monument. There is just a feeling you cannot explain but will never forget. We left the memorial and saw the Korea and Vietnam walls, stopped at the Marine Memorial, also called the Iwo Jima Memorial, and the new Air Force Memorial. Being an Army Air Corps veteran, I am glad they finally recognized the air crews.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question

Should Congress extend unemployment benefits? Why or why not? For how long? “No. We are too much in debt now. We should cut spending and make it better for business so they are not fearful of expanding which in turn will put more people back to work.” M.C. “Congress should focus its resources and energies on ways to stimulate job growth and employment opportunities rather than using its resources and energies to create and fund a welfare mentality through government handouts.” G.G. “Let’s say that you and your spouse have a combined income of $120,000 and you are both laid off. You are laid off after seven years with your employer and your spouse after 16 years with their employer. Luckily, you are both eligible for unemployment. However, even though it pays about 40 percent of your previous salary, it maxes out at about $425 a week. So, if your spouse was making $80,000, they will not get 40 percent of that, they will get only about $425 per week. You collect a little less. Combined family income is now about 35 per-

cent of what you were making last month. What are you going to do now? “Do you really think that money is going to pay all the bills, mortgage, insurance, utilities, groceries, etc? Plus, if you want health insurance you now have to pay for COBRA, which is not cheap. “To survive and keep your house (which you have been in for 16 years) and your 8-year-old cars, you go through a pile of money from your savings while searching for jobs equivalent to what you had previously. “Jobs are scarce. The economy is in the toilet. Do you really think you would be satisfied to remain on unemployment? Ridiculous! Or to be offered a job making $10 an hour when you were used to making $18 and $38 per hour? To know that you will have to save extra hard to build back up your savings to what it was prior to being laid off? “Yes, unemployment benefits should be extended! They should be evaluated about every six months. Yes, this is a true story.” K.M.H. “We need to support our friends, neighbors and family members that are unemployed due to the economic woes of the United States over the past couple

We left the Air Force Memorial and went to the Golden Corral in Hanover, Md., for dinner. We were introduced and received another welcome ovation. We left Hanover for the airport. From there we came home. I will forever be grateful to the Honor Flight Tri-State, their sponsors and Cheryl Popp for compiling a smooth trip, not a hitch in 18 hours. There were also many small things to mention, like an Arby’s box lunch on each seat in the Washington bus. There were bottles of water at all times because of hot weather, 100 degrees or more in Washington. The guardians even cooled us off with cold towels while we sat in the shade, waiting for the tour at the memorial to end. The bus driver slowed down at the Pentagon so we could see where the plane hit on 9-11. Donald Lainhart is a World War II veteran from Hebron.

So many skilled, talented people have nothing to do – we need to find a way to put their skills and talents to work so they can once again be contributors to the community. And they need to work to keep their skills up-do-date so they will be employable.” J.S.B.

SMALL BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT

PATRICIA A. SCHEYER/CONTRIBUTOR

Erica Carroll opened the Waves Salon in December 2008. It moved to its present building at 8470 U.S. 42 in Florence in March.

Waves Salon encourages pampering By Patricia A. Scheyer Community Recorder Contributor

The Waves Salon is a full-service salon that specializes in being nice to yourself – setting aside a special time to relax and indulge in a few services guaranteed to make you feel pretty. Located in the mini mall at the corner of U.S. 42 and Hopeful Church Road, the business is owned by Erica Carroll. She moved it to its present building in March, although she has owned it since December 2008. “I went into the business thinking, ‘What would I like, and how would I like to be treated,’” said Carroll. “So we came up with a VIP package that people can buy where they pick two of our four groupings, and they have almost unlimited usage. We are the first salon

to offer this.” The groupings include hair services, skin and cosmetics, nail services and massage. Several subcategories are under each grouping. The elegant salon incorporates areas for manicures and pedicures, massages – both Swedish/deep tissue and chair massage – facials, airbrush tanning, and of course, hair stations. Carroll said they also host parties, bridal, bachelorette, and birthday, and they can do company parties as well. “Our main focus is to maintain the integrity of hair, body and nails,” Carroll said. “Here you can slow down and take time to pamper yourself at reasonable prices. Just call us at 859-283-5200, or visit our website at www.WavesSalonandSpa.com for our specials.”

Boone County’s annual summer gathering of livestock contests, rides and treats is about to start. The Boone County 4-H & Utopia Fair begins Saturday, July 31, and runs Aug. 2-7 at the Boone County Fairgrounds on Idlewild Road in Burlington. This is the 78th year for the fair which began in 1932. Admission is $8 for ages 3 and older. The price gets a person into the fair and all rides. Ages 2 and under are free with rides $2 each. “We’re still able to keep the Boone County fair economically family friendly,” fair board member Sandra Cupps said. Admission for the past two years has been steady. David Wallace, the fair board’s vice president, said last year attendance was around 35,000 for the week. The previous year attendance was closer to 36,000. “We’re very weather dependent,” he said. Wallace said in the current economic times, the fair is a great value for family entertainment. “You always want more but, yes, I’ve been generally pleased with the attendance at the fair,” he said. Those familiar with the fairgrounds might notice a change this year.

What you’ll feel when a close relationship ends It’s said a most precious situation in life occurs when we are able to achieve three important things: to love someone; to have this someone love me; and to have both these things happen at the same time. We smile and knowingly admit, “Yes, but it doesn’t always happen this way.” In his book, “To Love and Be Loved,” Sam Keen relates a crucial time in his life. He was a young man in college and in love with a girl who said she loved him. They often discussed, and really believed, that their relationship was destined for a lifelong journey of bliss. Then, he writes, “In April, the cruelest of months, she came for the spring dance, and after the last waltz, sudden as death, she told me she didn’t love me anymore… “When she left, I collapsed into grief and incomprehension. I never heard from her again. No letter. No calls. No explanations … All meaning, delight and promise

seemed to have vanished from my life.” Millions of people can empathize with his feelings. And whether it happens when we’re Father Lou young or old, it’s Guntzelman always painful. never want it Perspectives We to happen again. Numbed by our grief, we often resort to one of the following defenses. 1. Pessimism: we conclude we’re unlovable, people are untrustworthy, or we decide love is an illusion and try to protect ourselves from loving again. 2. Pseudoromanticism: we engage in sex for merely selfish purposes, play at being romantic or pretend we love another – but cut and run when things get too serious. That way, we’re never hurt, our ego is soothed, and the pain happens to someone else. It’s

sort of a revenge for what happened to us. 3. Pragmatism: We settle for platonic or practical relationships, avoid intense expressions of romance, and relate as a good friend rather than lover. At times of hurt, disillusionment or cynicism, we see no wisdom in the centuries-old adage: “Tis better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all.” Heartaches, though never sought, are part of human existence. When they happen to us they seem devoid of any good aspect, they’re only catastrophic. It takes time to grasp the bigger picture of our lives. We can’t see how the relational suffering in our lives accomplishes anything but a broken heart. Only later do we dare admit that they often can have some benefit for us: they open unrevealed places in our hearts, create compassion for others, and give birth to a greater wisdom about

We can’t see how the relational suffering in our lives accomplishes anything but a broken heart. Only later do we dare admit that they often can have some benefit for us: they open unrevealed places in our hearts, create compassion for others, and give birth to a greater wisdom about ourselves. ourselves, life and the real meaning of love. Ernest Hemingway stated a great truth when he wrote, “Life breaks everyone, and afterward, many are strong in the broken places.” Those are just some of the reasons why it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. Yet there is even a greater reason. Though we may lose the one we love, we have still accomplished what many yearn for but do not savor. For anytime we genuinely love, we are a magnificent success both spiritually and psychologically. As Rilke attests, “For one human being to love another

human being: that is perhaps the most difficult task that has been entrusted to us, the ultimate test, the final test and proof, the work for which all other work is preparatory.” The challenge to every human is to love. If our love is not returned, our call still remains. As Dr. James Hollis puts it: “The great rhythm of gain and loss is outside our control; what remains within our control is the attitude of willingness to find, in even the bitterest losses, what remains to be lived.” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Chowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; down on local cathedral chefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recipes There are a lot of cookbooks brought to my attention to review. Joanne â&#x20AC;&#x153;Giovannaâ&#x20AC;? Delli Carpini Trimpeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Holy Chowâ&#x20AC;? really stands out in the stack. G i o vanna is the chef at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral in downt o w n Cincinnati Rita and is the Heikenfeld author of this book, Ritaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kitchen thus the name. The book itself is vibrant with color and reflects Giovannaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unorthodox approach to cooking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hardest thing about the book was having to measure everything,â&#x20AC;? she told me. She has been cooking since she was 14 and never measured, just cooked â&#x20AC;&#x153;to tasteâ&#x20AC;? like many of us. Career-wise, she worked for family, doing accounting.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did not like that,â&#x20AC;? she told me. Her interest in food led to catering and volunteering for school dinners and church events. Giovanna has a rich cooking background, having lived in Italy, Venezuela and in the U.S. Her passion for good food made with love has become legendary here in our area, and that led her to the job she currently occupies at St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. So how did she get the job? Her husband, Mike, working on his masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in lay ministry, invited Deacon David Klingshirn to dinner. He told her their chef was leaving and that she should apply. The book itself is an interesting read, with stories and Bible quotes (from her husband) that go along with each recipe. It is available online at http://holychowcookbook.c om or by calling 513-2952510.

Ritaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version of chicken Marsala over whole-wheat spaghetti.

Giovanna Trimpeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chicken Marsala Prepare chicken:

Use 4 chicken breasts pounded thin, to about 1 inch. Sprinkle 1â &#x201E;2 teaspoon each kosher salt and 1â &#x201E;2 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper on chicken. Put 1 cup all-purpose flour in a bowl and dip chicken in to cover both sides. Shake off excess. Put 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add 3 cloves chopped garlic and cook to light brown; donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t burn. Add 1â &#x201E;2 teaspoon each kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper.

Prepare sauce:

Take chicken out of skillet and add 1 cup fresh mushrooms or a 7-ounce can. Cook one to two minutes. Then on simmering heat add 3â &#x201E;4 cup Marsala wine. Loosen residue and add 1 â &#x201E;4 cup fresh chopped flat leaf parsley and 1â &#x201E;2 cup mascarpone cheese. Whisk until melted,

Put chicken back in sauce and cook on simmer for five minutes. Flip occasionally and just before removing pour 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice over. Take chicken out and add 1â &#x201E;4 cup water and whisk again on high for 15 seconds to deglaze the sauce and make it smoother. Pour over chicken when served â&#x20AC;&#x201C; use a rubber spatula to get all the sauce out. Good with rice, potatoes, fettuccine Alfredo.

Update on radio rolls

Tom Heitkamp, a Mount Lookout reader, made the recipe that he sent me from a website. They turned out well, though he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re authentic. The glaze was a disappointment, however, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working on that part. I checked with Rose Levy Beranbaum, the queen of baking, and she has never heard of these rolls. Does anybody know of a bakery here that still sells them?

Ritaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pasta with Pecorino Romano and arugula

The arugula in my herb garden is still producing like crazy, though with the heat it is becoming a bit hotter in flavor. 12 oz. or so pasta, boiled 1 stick butter or substitute 2 nice cloves chopped garlic (optional) Romano cheese, grated â&#x20AC;&#x201C; about 2 cups Salt and pepper to taste Arugula â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a few handfuls, chopped (go to taste, using less than you think you want at first) Reserved pasta water, about 2 cups Toss hot pasta with butter and garlic. Sprinkle in a little over half the cheese, salt and pepper, and just enough of the reserved water to make a sauce. If you need more water, add it. Add arugula, mix and serve, garnished with rest of cheese. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.

“And it’s one, two, three strikes you’re out at the old ball game.” We sing it every seventh inning at the ballgame, but you do not have to strike out at healthy eating during a trip to the stadium. There are many foods that just scream “ballpark fun” and most of these tasty treats are not very healthy. There are, however, a few things available during the game that will not take a hit on your waistline. Instead of eating some of these high calorie items, opt for one or two of their healthier alternatives.

and food items. Try bringing in baked chips or peanut butter crackers for that salty crunch at the ballpark. Carrot sticks are great for young kids too! In the end, it is all about moderation. Eat before taking in the game so you won’t be as tempted to overindulge during the game. But, if you are really craving nachos during the game, try salsa instead of cheese or split it with another person. It is OK to enjoy some of the ballpark staples, but don’t overdo it; both your wallet and waistline will thank you.

Dubis tell Rotary of St. E progress John Dubis, executive vice president and chief operating officer of St. Elizabeth Healthcare, addressed Florence Rotary on July 19 to highlight the success of the recent merger of the former St. Elizabeth and St. Luke Hospitals into the St. Elizabeth Healthcare System. Dubis has worked as a health care executive for the past 32 years, and will replace the retiring Joe Gross as St. Elizabeth’s chief executive officer at the end of 2010. Dubis focused his remarks on the significant improvements realized as a result of the merger. A number of programs have been consolidated across the two campuses and duplicate services eliminated, resulting not only in cost savings but also in measurable improvements in quality scores throughout the St. Elizabeth Healthcare system. He reported that the 6,500 associates of St. Elizabeth have been working together to share best practices and meet the needs of patients across Northern Kentucky. Dubis also noted that cost savings from the merger has allowed St. Elizabeth Healthcare to triple the capital investment program. That investment has provided for the addition of Northern Kentucky’s first Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery, and the availability of digital mammography at both the Edgewood and Fort Thomas campuses. He made special note of St. Elizabeth’s certification as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence. He also announced that planning is going forward for a new Spine Center at the Florence campus, opening in late 2010 or early 2011.

Giant wasps are ‘cicada killers’ Question: Some kind of giant yellow and black wasps are making holes in my lawn and flying around me when I mow. How can I kill them? Answer: Those are called “cicada killers.” They have been flying about and burrowing into local lawns, gardens and play areas, prompting many calls from homeowners. Despite their menacing appearance (up to 2 inches long with rusty red head/thorax, amber yellow wings, and black and yellow striped abdomen), the wasps seldom sting unless provoked. Biology: Cicada killers do not live in communal nests

like hornets or yellowjackets. They overwinter as larvae within cocoons deep in the soil, emerging as adults during July. The females feed, mate, and excavate burrows in the ground about 1⁄2 inch in diameter, ending in a series of brood chambers. Bare ground or sand is especially prone to infestation. Excess soil is pushed out of the burrow, leaving a mound of dirt at the entrance. Each female excavates numerous burrows and provisions them with adult cicadas which she ambushes, paralyzes with her venom, and stuffs into individual brood chambers. She then lays an egg on top,

backs out, and seals the cell behind her. The egg hatches within a few days and the hungry larva devours the offering, eventually transforming into an adult the following summer. Management : Cicada killers seldom sting and the females normally do not defend their burrows. The males, while incapable of stinging, sometimes divebomb passers-by, or hover menacingly nearby. Insecticide treatment may be warranted where the soil burrows become unsightly, or the wasps are digging in a high-traffic area such as along a sidewalk, playground, or sand trap on a golf course.

Individual burrows can be effectively sprayed or dusted with most lawn and garden insecticides (Sevin, Bayer Advanced Lawn & Garden Multi-Insect Killer, Spectracide Triazicide Soil & Turf Insect Killer, etc.), or a wasp and hornet control aerosol. Multiple nests may need to be treated with a broadcast application to the ground surface, using a pump-up or hose-end sprayer. As a deterrent to future nesting, it is helpful to eliminate bare-ground areas. Cicada killers generally do not prefer burrowing into well-managed turf, gravel, pebbles or mulch. In situations such as playgrounds,

camping areas, or commercial landscapes, these materials may be substituted for sand or bare soil. Another option is to wait and do nothing – in a matter of weeks the adults will die off and there's a chance the problem will not recur next year.

WEG course designer pleased with progress The driving course designer for the upcoming Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, Richard Nicoll, was recently on the grounds of the Kentucky Horse Park for several days to work with the course builder, meet with various decorators, and generally check on the progress of the marathon obstacles. According to Nicoll, construction is now about 95 percent complete on the marathon obstacles. Once everything is finished, all that will remain is the decorating. Some of this will need to be completed at the last minute because two obstacles contain portable elements that will be moved into place after the eventing cross-country phase (on the first Saturday during the WEG). After his meeting with the decorators, Nicoll was pleased to note how enthusiastic and, with the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event having been at the Kentucky Horse Park for so many years, how experienced they are. He expects that spectators familiar with driving, and those new to the sport, will be wowed by
