Florence seeks input on parks

Tell city what events you want By Justin B. Duke

FLORENCE — If you want something new from Florence parks, now is the time to speak up. The city of Florence is conducting a parks and recreation interest survey through the end of August. Parks & Recreation Administrator Vanessa Lenear conducted a similar survey when she joined the city a decade ago. “Since it’s been 10 years, and with all of our parks pretty much developed, we have an opportunity for some programming,” Lenear said. The survey offers residents the opportunity to give input on any kind of classes or events they might like the city to host. Among the several options are exercise classes, softball and pet programs. With completion of the Florence Senior Activities Center, the city now has more options than ever for recreational programming, Lenear said. As the data is analyzed, Lenear hopes to implement some of the new programming as the weather breaks this coming spring. The survey also asks what parks residents currently use so Lenear can get a grasp on how

Girl Scout Troop 1519 at Mary, Queen of Heaven in Erlanger has been headed by Leslie Bauer for the past three years. Being in the troop has helped the young girls grow, according to Bauer.

Girl Scouts of America celebrate centennial By Libby Cunningham

It’s not just about the cookies, although Thin Mints, Carmel DeLites and Peanut Butter Patties may elicit memories of Girl Scouts to most. One hundred years of memories is what the Girl Scouts are celebrating this year. Juliette Gordon Low established the Girl Scouts of America 100 years ago.

Today 5,500 young women in Kentucky are Girl Scouts and 1,300 adult volunteers help them along the journey. In celebration, the Girl Scouts of Kentucky Wilderness Road’s Licking Valley Cluster is hosting a Fun in the Sun event on Saturday, Aug. 25. From 1 to 4 p.m. families are invited to the Girl Scout office on Watson Road in Erlanger. They are encouraged to bring canned goods.

Events aside, becoming a Girl Scout is only the beginning for today’s girls. Although traditions like Girl Scout cookies and service hours carry on, things have changed and there are now more opportunities than ever to be involved. Programming now offers Pathways, which allows girls to pick and choose how they want See SCOUTS, Page A2

Some of the first returned surveys have shown many residents don’t know which parks belong to the city and which belong to the county, Lenear said. Since she’s getting information on what people would like to see at some of Boone County’s parks, she’s planning on sharing that information with Boone County Parks & Recreation. Surveys have gone out in residents’ water bills, but any Florence resident who doesn’t have a copy of the survey can print it out from All surveys are due to the Public Services Department in the Florence Government Center by Aug. 31.

Candidates file for Boone County and Walton school boards By Justin B. Duke

Significant portions of Boone County’s two school boards are up for election this fall, and the candidates have lined up. For Boone County Schools, board seats are divided across five geographical divisions, and this year Divisions 1, 2 and 3 are up for election. Ed Massey is running unop-

posed in Division 1. Massey is an attorney and the current president of the National School Boards Association. In Division 2, incumbent Stephen Kinman, an insurance underwriting manager, faces retired electrical engineer Don Seely and Chris McKinney, a late addition to the ballot. Division 3 also had a trio of

candidates including incumbent pilot Ken Cook, former board member Steve Templeton and real estate investor Jesse Brewer. However, Cook has since withdrawn from the race. Board members serve a fouryear term. Two of the Walton-Verona Schools Board of Education’s five seats are on the ballot this year.

CRASH INJURES 4 Two women were in critical condition after a crash on Hopeful Church Road in Florence. A3

Unlike Boone County Schools, the seats have no specific geographical ties and the two highest vote earners will be given the seats. The current holders of the seats in question, Kevin Flynn and Bill Wethington, are running for re-election along with newcomers Randy Webster and Megan Trumble Jones. Flynn is the regional environmental safety specialist for Delta.

Wethington owns an insurance agency in Walton and is the current board chairman. Webster is a 2006 graduate of Walton-Verona High School and works at the Walton Kroger Marketplace. Jones is a stay-at-home mom. The two winners will serve four year terms. Visit for more community news

Golf tournament benefits girls with cancer By Stephanie Salmons Proceeds from an annual golf tournament will benefit two young girls fighting cancer. The sixth annual Luke Muller Golf Outing will benefit Elizabeth Smith, 7, of Fort Wright, and EllaReid Mason, 6, of Union. The event will be held Saturday, Aug. 25, at the Kenton County Golf Course.

Registration starts at 10:30 a.m. and play begins at noon. Lunch will be provided from 10:30 a.m. to noon. Cost is $75 per person for golf and lunch, $100 per or once a week,” said Rhonda Ritzi, membership and day camp specialist with the Licking Valley Cluster.

person for golf, lunch, raffles and most games on the course. Hole sponsorship is $100 and capital prize tickets are $20 each or three for $50 for a $500 cash prize. Founder Tim Price, of Taylor Mill, said the fund-

raiser began after his friend’s child, Luke Muller, was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 4. He’s now healthy, but the event continues and every year Price said they pick two families to benefit. “Our motto is no one fights alone,” he said. Price heard about both the Smith and Mason families from friends. “My goal is to give them one day where everything

is OK,” he said. Ella-Reid was diagnosed in August 2011 with PNET, or primitive neuroectodermal tumor, her mother Jamie Mason said. “You’re so humbled by the thought that all these people want to do something for you,” she said. Mason said they’re blessed to live in such a “tight-knit, supportive community.” Elizabeth Smith was diagnosed in March 2011 with

lymphoblastic lymphoma of her left femur. According to her mother, Tina Smith, Elizabeth is now heading into her second year of treatment. To preregister or for more information, contact Price at or 513-8863729. Checks can be made to nonprofit organization Fort Thomas Provides, 10239 Limerick Circle, Covington, KY 41015.

can participate in certain events as part of their Scouting. Destinations offer trips around the country and around the world to further learning. “Our national headquarters does a lot of research and development on issues that girls are engaged in and that girls are not engaged in,” Ritzi said. Research found that leadership opportunities are what girls need, so in 2008 Scouting age levels changed to reflect that. Traditionally the oldest level of Scouting was Senior Girl Scouts, reserved for older high school girls.

Today girls at that age can also be known as Ambassadors. A Scouting level change occurred during the 1980s, Ritzi said, with the addition of Daisy Girl Scouts, for girls 5 to 7 years old. “They use that research to find different ways to reach all age levels and increase those leadership skills,” Ritzi said. “Another big thing we are focusing on is healthy living and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math skills.)” Senior/Ambassador Girl Scouts, typically in ninth and 10th grade, re-

flect the leadership opportunities older girls can gain through Scouting. It is also at this age that girls can complete their Gold Award service project. Ritzi has been influenced by Girl Scouting since she was in middle school. “I decided I wanted to be a counselor-in-training at our camp,” she said. “And

then, I did that for two years, then they had invited me to be a junior counselor and be a camp staff member.” Girls in Northern Kentucky are still joining, she said. “I think our numbers have remained pretty steady, we keep growing every year,” Ritzi said.

Elizabeth Smith, 7, of Fort Wright, and Ella-Reid Mason, 6, of Union, last fall. Both girls have forms of cancer. PROVIDED

Six compete for conservation district supervisor seats

Four injured in Florence crash By Brenna Kelly

FLORENCE — Two women were in critical condition early Monday after a crash on Hopeful Church Road in Florence Sunday evening. Florence Police say Christina Newman was driving a 2012 Fiat north on Hopeful Church about 8 p.m. when she crossed the center line. The Fiat was then struck by a southbound 2000 Ford Excursion driven by James Garey. The Fiat and Excursion hit head-on, police said. Newman was flown to University Hospital and a

passenger in her car, Michelle Beatty, was taken there by ambulance. The women, both of Florence, were listed in critical condition early Monday, police said. Garey, also of Florence, was also taken to University Hospital, but his injuries were less severe, police said. A child in his SUV was taken to Children’s Hospital to be treated for minor injuries. Florence Police are investigating the accident. Anyone who saw the crash is asked to call Detective Ki Ransdell at 859-647-5420.

Florence conducting smoke testing

Dog walk raises awareness, money For Sarah McCane of Independence, her dogs – she owns three pit bulls – are her best therapy. McCane, who has cystic fibrosis, underwent a double lung transplant last year and said her dogs have helped in the recovery process. “They just keep me going and help me get out of bed every day. They put a smile on my face every day.” She’s also one of the cofounders of Good Deeds for Bullied Breeds. A bullied breed is any breed discriminated against publicly or politically, and includes breeds like pit bull, Doberman, German shepherd and Rottweiler, McCane said, adding there are 75 dog breeds in America that have been banned or restricted in some city. According to the group’s Facebook page, their mission is to “dispel the negative stereotypes associated with misunderstood breeds, in hopes of eliminating breed specific laws.” Good Deeds is teaming up with Save Our Shelter


vices Department will be conducting a smoke testing study in the Cayton Road, Kelley Drive and Cobblestone Court areas

of Florence the week of Aug. 27. The purpose of the testing is to find potential points of storm water in-

flow and infiltration in the sanitary sewer system. For more information, call 859-647-5416.

The walk originally started to bring light to breed specific legislation and to raise money, McCane said. Proceeds from the event will be split between Save Our Shelter Dogs and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. According to McCane, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is dedicated to extending the quality of life for cystic fibrosis patients, finding new medicines and more. The organization was the “sole reason” she was able to get her lung transplant, McCane said. The dog-friendly event welcomes all breeds but dogs must be spayed or neutered and on a leash.

Grant boosts science instruction

St. Henry feeder schools to get help By Justin B. Duke

Science teachers are about to get some help. The Diocese of Covington was awarded a $30,000 grant that will improve science instruction in its Boone County schools. The University of Kentucky Partnership Institute for Mathematics and Science Education Reform is administering the grant through a grant it received from the Toyota Foundation and

Curriculum alignment will take a broad approach by giving teachers content they should teach before the end of the year instead of micromanaging teachers and telling them what needs to be taught on certain days, Fay said. “Each feeder school will be on the same year-to-year track,” he said. This is helpful because it means students who may move to a different school will still be getting the same content and when they reach St. Henry District High School, all students will have been taught the same curriculum.

National Science Foundation that was designed to improve professional development for middle and high school STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) teachers. “You can get creative in how you use the money,” said Michael Fay, science teacher at St. Henry District High School. The grant will be used to align the physical science curriculum in St. Henry District High School’s feeder schools – St. Paul School, St. Henry Elementary School, Mary, Queen of Heaven School, Immaculate Heart of Mary School and St. Joseph Academy.

“We want them all to be on an equivalent playing field,” Fay said. This will make teaching science at the high school level more efficient because there will be less time spent trying to understand what a student has or has not been taught and maybe provide time for even more content to be taught, he said. To implement the aligned content, part of the grant money will be used to help improve communication. In October, any teacher who teaches physical science in any of the feeder schools will attend a science conference day where there will be presentations

on the new curriculum. Any teacher whose school is in session that day will have a substitute teacher paid for by the grant. The grant will also allow teachers to begin a professional relationship with science teachers at the university level so they can ask questions and get ideas on labs and experiments to run in class. The grant only lasts for one year, but the Diocese of Covington is using it as a trial for potentially permanent changes for all STEM classes across all the school clusters in the diocese.

Corinne Carducci just taught her first day as a sixth-grade math teacher at Ockerman Middle School. JUSTIN B. DUKE/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER


FLORENCE — The day Corinne Carducci waited for her entire life has come. Aug. 15 was Carducci’s first day as a sixth-grade math teacher at Ockerman Middle School. For someone who’s dreamed of being a teacher her entire life and spent four years at Northern Kentucky University preparing to teach, this marks one of Carducci’s most important days. In the early days of the school year, Carducci has two major roles: explaining how her class will work and helping sixth-graders adjust to middle school. “Today is just so much information for the kids and me,” she said. The sixth-grade transition can be a scary time for some students, and Carducci worked hard at making that smooth for everyone so they’ll be focused on learning when instruction begins. “No one cried today, so that is a success,” Carducci joked.

NEW IN CLASS New in Class will track Corinne Carducci as she prepares for her first year in the classroom. Carducci just graduated from Northern Kentucky University and will teach sixthgrade math at Ockerman Middle School.

With sixth-graders, teachers have to prepare for certain issues that will pop up. This means Carducci needs to learn where everything in the building is because she’ll be giving a lot of directions. She has a stack of index cards hidden in her desk that have all of her students’ locker combinations. “They’ll all inevitably forget,” Carducci said. Carducci spent her first day introducing herself, her assignment schedule and plans for her four classes. The first day

also brings things that she never considered in her years preparing to teach like giving directions for a fire drill. “It’s good to have all of that information out of the way,” Carducci said. Rounding out the rest of her first week, Carducci plans to run some games where she can get to know her students and give them a practice test to get an idea of where her students’ math skills are coming into the new year. So while the first few days are a bit more laid-back than the rest of the year, Carducci is still keeping busy with tweaking lessons and preparing for her first year of content. “I have to-do list upon to-do list upon to-do list,” she said. Now that she’ll be talking for several hours a day, the Boone County High School junior varsity girls soccer coach is considering changing her coaching style to protect her voice. “I need to not yell as much at soccer game,” Carducci said. “I get so excited.”

Boone4Health, a physical education and nutrition education program, has implemented a new playground program at Collins Elementary and Yealey Elementary in Boone County. On Aug. 14, Yealey Elementary faculty took a look at the new playground their first day back to work. The playground was designed by Megan Vandegeer and Jessica Houglan. It was painted by David Stefanopoulos, Jessica Houglan and several other teachers and friend volunteers of Yealey on Aug. 10. This large project will help students at Yealey by providing more structured and organized outdoor play and a new innovative ways for class-

room teachers to incorporate important content. Many of the teachers are eager to use the large outdoor map to teach students about the states, capitals and history in the United States. Other elements of the playground include number grids to help with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division; letter grids to help with letter identification and spelling and team outdoor play to help the kids cooperate and communicate successfully all the while teaching them to enjoy physical activity throughout their lives. Physical education teacher Brian Courtney and Stefanopoulos will introduce this new curriculum to students and teachers the first several weeks of school.

Ryle girls

Like volleyball, soccer has been realigned for the 2012 season by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association. The alignment means schools will have the same postseason foes they do in sports such as basketball and baseball. The new districts: Region 8, District 32 - Grant County, Simon Kenton, WaltonVerona; Region 9, District 33 Boone County, Conner, Cooper, Ryle; Region 9, District 34 - Dixie Heights, Ludlow, St. Henry District, Villa Madonna; Region 9, District 35 - Beechwood, Covington Catholic (Boys), Covington Latin, Holmes, Holy Cross, Notre Dame (Girls); Region 9, District 36 - Bellevue, Dayton, Highlands, Newport Central Catholic; Region 10, District 37 - Bishop Brossart, Calvary Christian, Campbell County, Scott.

Aug. 15 and return home Monday, Aug. 27, against Walton-Verona. Brooke Chilson and Taylor Thamann have goals so far this year. Boone went 13-8-1 last year and have a young team this year for head coach Mike Hughes.

Ryle was 10-9-4 last year under head coach Edmundo Echeverria, losing to Dixie Heights in the regionals.

St. Henry girls

Defense will be a top priority for the St. Henry girls soccer team as the Crusaders try to sustain the prominence they have had in recent seasons. St. Henry was 18-4 last year, winning the All “A” state title for the third time in four years and winning its district for the fourth straight year. Steve Lorenz, who returns for

his sixth year as head coach with 88 wins against just 18 losses, lost five defenders to graduation and will have to rely more on sophomores than at any time in the past four years. At the same time, he returns 10 seniors and six varsity starters. “In spite of their inexperience they are a talented group and will make an impact on the field,” Lorenz said. “The key to our success this season is establishing an understanding on the field between our returning players, some of whom were members of the 2010 state championship team, and the younger players who are getting their first varsity action.” There is plenty of goal-scoring experience in senior forward Libby Leedom, who had began the 2012 season with 86 for her career. Other returning starters include Laura Felix, Jenna Litzler, Morgan Potts, Alex Isler and Hayley Leedom. Felix, a senior center back, leads the back line. Sophomore Mallory Foley was a varsity backup last season as a freshman and will likely step into See SOCCER, Page A8

Walton-Verona beats Bellevue By James Weber

High school football began last week in Boone County. Here is a look at how local teams did.

Boone County/Conner

The Rebels opened their season with a 42-33 loss to Madison Central Aug. 18 in Richmond. The loss spoiled a spectacular night for senior Jeremiah Williams, who scored four touchdowns: Two on receptions, one on the ground, and one on a kickoff return. He caught four passes for 105 yards. Blake Ingolia, in his first varsity start at quarterback, completed 9-of-21 for 156 yards and the two TDs to Williams. Alec McGarr had two catches for 41 yards. Mustafa Diaw had 79 rushing yards on 14 carries with one touchdown. Boone had two chances to win the game late before falling short. Boone hosts Conner this Friday, Aug. 24. It will be Conner’s season opener as the Cougars played a second scrimmage last week.

Cooper/Ryle Cooper's Aaron Morgan fights to get free from Ryle tacklers in a win over Ryle 35-6 Aug. 17. THANKS TO THOMAS KELLY

The Jaguars beat the Raiders for the first time in the fiveyear history of the rivalry, and in a big way, routing Ryle 35-6 at Cooper. Aaron Morgan returned the

opening kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown to set the tone for Cooper, who led 28-0 after three quarters. A.J. Collins rushed for 149 yards and and had a touchdown reception. That was one of two TD passes thrown by senior Tyler Morris, who rushed for two scores as well. Will Ludwig had a TD reception. Ryle’s lone score was a 47yard TD pass from Nathan Davis to Ryan Hill. Cooper will play Holy Cross 8:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 24, at Simon Kenton as part of the Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown. Holy Cross is 1-0 after beating Dayton 69-20, and HC is the defending Class 2A state champion. Ryle plays Henry Clay 6 p.m. Saturday at Bryan Station High School in Lexington as part of a weekend series of games featuring Lexington schools.


The Bearcats beat Bellevue 21-6 to open the season, avenging a season-opening loss from 2011. Sophomore Will Latimore had 82 rushing yards and a touchdown. Senior brother Chris Latimore had 10.5 tackles and a rushing touchdown. Tyler Cornelison scored on a 19-yard run. Senior Corey Bennett had 47 rushing yards for the Bearcats. Walton plays at Henry County Friday, Aug. 24.

a starting role as an outside defender. Junior Emily Specht will be given the opportunity to earn a starting center back position and Senior Maria Syfert is being converted to an outside back from her role as an attacking player and had an impressive preseason, Lorenz said. Other top new contributors include Kirsten Bartlett, Hannah Bohmer, Kelsey Cline, Lauren Johnson, Jordan Miller and Rachel Samotis. St. Henry was set to begin defense of its All “A” title Aug. 22 in the regional. St. Henry will host Cincinnati Mercy Saturday, Aug. 25 and will have a key match at Notre Dame Sept. 8.

W-V was 7-15-1 last year but won the 23rd District tournament. Shelby Mullikin returns to lead the offense after scoring 20 goals a year ago;

and Tressie Kirby returns in goal.

Boone County boys

The Rebels were 11-9-3 last year under head coach Nathan Browning, who returns for his third season. That included a 2-2 tie with Covington Catholic, the No. 1 team in the state at the time. The Rebels have six returning starters to try to unleash that potential on a regular basis in Evan Valentine, Matt Melzer, Rian Ait Salih, Evan O’Hara, Brent Rice and Haven Borkowski. O’Hara had 11 goals a year ago. “We have a great foundation of players to build around and if we come together as a team and continue to work as hard as we have been, we have the ability to go as far as we want at the end of the year,” Browning said. Boone started the season with a 7-2 win over Holy Cross. Boone plays at Simon Kenton Thursday, Aug. 23, and at Highlands Tuesday, Aug. 28.

Cooper boys

Lucas Patterson takes over as head coach for the Jaguars, who went 8-11 last year, the best record in their three-year varsity history. Returning starters include Alec Kubala, Jeff Huang, Zane Ross and Chris O’Brien. The top newcomer is goalkeeper Logan Williams. Williams and fellow sophomores Ross and O’Brien will bolster a team filled with seniors. “We’ll be looking to put together our first winning season, and our first run at regionals,” Patterson said. Cooper will play in the Walton Invitational Saturday, Aug. 25 and return home to face Campbell County Tuesday, Aug. 28.

19 goals and 20 assists. Senior Tyrus Sciarra returns after scoring 29 goals last year. Senior Mitchell See, who had eight goals and 12 assists, will have a bigger role this year. Senior defender Garrett Mead leads the defense. “We’ve got 13 seniors and in high school sports if you have seniors that have played at that high level, it helps put you a step ahead of some schools,” said head coach Stephen Collins. “With Rob and Chris we had one of the best defenses in the state, and those two kids will be hard to replace, but what we have back makes it a little easier to soften that blow.” Ryle’s first home game is Tuesday, Aug. 28 against Newport Central Catholic.

Ryle boys

St. Henry boys

The Raiders lost three starters from last year’s state runner-up team that finished 23-3-3. They are three big losses in all-state goalkeeper Chris Froschauer, all-state defender Rob Poehlman and forward Cole Willoughby, who had

More than 1,600 athletes from across the United States competed in the two-day, 200-target competition. The Senior/Junior Varsity team brought home a second-place trophy. They finished second out of 36 squads competing with a score of 927. The team members are Quentin Penrod, Taylor Bisig, Kyle Sears, Tyler Schnitzler and Steve Flinchum. “They were disappointed in their scores after the first day with the wind playing a factor,” said head coach Dennis Menning. “I told them, every one has to shoot the same target; tomorrow is another day. You cannot give up. The next day they came back and

“These two guys are definite proof that the cream rises to the top. They just keep shooting the big scores,” Menning said. “The competition is what makes the shooter the best he can be.

Prohibition era law outdated

Summer is in its final stretch now. The hot, humid days of July are behind us and our kids are heading back to school. There are many things I enjoy about summer, and on the top of that list is our county fair that was held last week. It’s always an excellent showcase of local culture and talent and this year was no exception. I enjoyed getting to sample the great fair food last week, look at the many interesting agricultural exhibits, and watch some of the horse shows. I even submitted my famous ‘Schickel dill pickles’ in the pickle contest and came away proudly with a red ribbon. I’m already looking forward to next year, and possibly even tweaking my recipe for a shot at first place. Rest assured, though, I’ve been doing more than just pickling. As chair of the Li-

censing and Occupations Committee, I work hard to stay on top of the regulations affecting small business. Each of John Schickel my four years COMMUNITY in the KenRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST tucky General Assembly, we have been successful in repealing laws and regulations that are found to impede business. I was humbled to recently learn my efforts are being recognized by the Small Business Caucus. I am the recipient of this year’s Friend of Small Business Award. I was equally honored to be acknowledged by the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce for ‘taking extraordinary steps to improve the

small business climate in the state.’ I am very passionate about my work for small businesses and will continue pushing for the changes needed to advance our business environment. I plan to pre-file a bill in the coming weeks that would do away with the prohibition on Election Day alcohol sales. Election Day alcohol sales laws are antiquated, serve no useful purpose and hurt small business. This belief was confirmed when I served as the head of the U.S. Marshal Service in the Eastern District of the state and handled some cases that involved vote buying and alcohol – always in dry counties. This is a bigger issue than some may realize. Restaurant and store owners tell me the law is a hindrance on their business, and I believe them. It

is an unnecessary inconvenience and has a direct negative effect on sales and profits at least two days each year. Due to confusion over interpretations of how the law is enforced, some businesses have even incurred additional court costs and legal expenses. I hope we are able to abolish this Prohibition era statute during the next legislative session and remove this pointless barrier for local restaurants and businesses. Hopefully it will be just one of many measures approved in 2013 that support small business in Northern Kentucky and the commonwealth. State Sen.

Instance Racing questions go unanswered In the Instant Racing case now in the Kentucky courts, the Beshear administration and the Horse Racing Commission have argued that videos of old horse races shown on machines are the legal equivalent of actual horse races. The machines show videos involving many horses that have long since died. Live racing with dead horses. Go figure. In 2010, lawyers for the horse racing industry used this reasoning before a Frankfort judge whose approval they needed to allow Instant Racing slot machines at horse tracks. The high-priced lawyers hired by the tracks and Beshear administration attorneys convinced the judge that this reasoning actually made sense. Part of the problem stemmed from the judge’s refusal to allow The Family Foundation, which had entered the case to oppose the move, to ask any pre-trial questions, review any documents, develop any proof

or inspect the machines in question. After denying The Family Foundation all discovery rights, the Martin case moved to Cothran the Court of Appeals. The COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST horse racing COLUMNIST industry then made a motion to bypass the Appeals Court altogether, sending the case directly to the Kentucky Supreme Court. But the high court refused the attempt in a unanimous decision. When the Appeals Court ruled in June of this year, it agreed with The Family Foundation that the facts needed to be heard. It found the trial court had “abused its discretion,” sending the case back to the lower court in order to allow for questions to finally be asked. What did horse industry lawyers do? They filed another

motion to move the case to the Kentucky Supreme Court. It seems anything is preferable to putting the facts on the table. What does it say about the case for Instant Racing that advocates think they have a better chance if the facts remain hidden? So far, no court has looked at an Instant Racing machine. The horse racing industry has never answered a question from Instant Racing opponents. It has never been required to produce a single document. Numerous motions have been filed, but the courts have yet to actually hear the facts of the case. What is Instant Racing? Where are the horses in the videos? Are the horses alive or dead? Are patrons betting on dead horses or on electronic reels? How can new odds be calculated on a race that was completed years before? How can it be pari-mutuel wagering when the Instant Racing patent

describes the wagering pool as a unique pool of one? A court cannot legitimately decide this case if these questions and others like it are never answered. The Supreme Court is unlikely to be convinced that it should take a case in which no evidence has even been heard. It’s kind of hard to make a decision when the merits of the case haven’t been presented. What will lawyers for the administration and the racing industry do if the Supreme Court rules against them again? Will they make their argument that a video of a horse race is an actual horse race by sending a video of their lawyers instead of actual lawyers to argue their case in front of the judge?

At 100 years old, organization still shaping women’s lives By Libby Cunningham

Florence’s Girl Scout Troop 196 met from 1952 until 1958. Lynda Blackburn Vickers has kept her memories of the troop in a plastic container for more than 60 years.

The Girl Scouts of America was 86 years old when Catie Douchette, 14, of Florence was born. This year, the organization celebrates 100 years since its founding. For Catie, the organization is more like an old friend and a place where she can use her skills to guide younger girls in Northern Kentucky. Currently one in every 14 girls in Northern Kentucky is a Girl Scout. Although Lynda Blackburn Vickers was a Girl Scout more than 50 years ago, her memories of campfires and cookie deliveries are as fresh as the mementos she keeps in plastic boxes in her Florence home. The Community Recorder asked readers to send in their greatest memories of Scouting. Here are some excerpts from what was received. Traci Vanbenschoten, a member of Troop 18 in Cold Spring, writes: “... As we were entering our high school years we would begin our adventures traveling the country. Our eighth grade summer, we packed into two vans and spent three weeks on the Wyoming Trek. We stayed in Girl Scout houses and churches and camped at National Center West. “We’ve seen Mount Rushmore, Badlands, Petrified Forest, Grand Canyon, whitewater rafting in Montana and much more. At National Center West we hiked to the top of the Mesa which overlooked the camp grounds and spent the night under heaven’s star. We ended our senior year with a trip to Savannah, Ga., to visit the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of Girl Scouts.” Girl Scout Troop196 in Florence met between 1952 and 1958. Vickers, who keeps a box of her memories in her home today, writes: “We had to do projects to earn our badges such as cooking. We actually camped, gathered the wood and started the fire in the fire pit. We put ground beef, potatoes and carrots, wrapped them in Reynolds Wrap, and threw them in the fire to cook. Of course, we topped off our meal by making s’mores.” Vickers said her troop also took trips to etiquette classes in Cincinnati. “Remember, this was the 1950s,” she said. Leslie Bauer, of Florence, is a Girl Scout leader at Mary, Queen of Heaven Church in Erlanger. Girl Scouting is helping her daughter grow, she writes: “Being a part of the Girl Scouts has been really great for my daughter, the other girls in our troop, and myself and the other parents involved. We have watched our girls really grow by participating in Girl Scouts and we are so proud of them. “Our troop has participated in many service projects such as collecting personal care items for the needy, making our parish aware of the important issue of child abuse. “We have gone on many field trips like to visit Mayor Diane Whalen of Florence and hear about how a city is run, how city council works. We have also taken field trips to the police station and fire station to learn about ... weather and fire safety.” Sisters Caroline and Catie Douchette, of Florence, are members of Troop 43 and Senior Girl Scouts. Caroline, 13, explains how she and her sister got involved. “It started because my mom was a leader, so we started as Daisies, we wanted to be in her troop, so we were Girl Scouts,” Caroline said. “Now I think we are doing it because we have so many friends in Girl Scouts and it was fun to do the activities and earn the badges.” The younger girls benefit from the help as well, says 14-year-old Catie. “Well lots of girls quit Girl Scouts once they get older because it kind of stops being cool,” Catie said. “But it never stops being fun because you can do tons of different trips, you can go camping and can do a lot.”

Readers offer barbecue recipes

Lockland School’s barbecue from the ‘50s

Ann Seebohm, a Montgomery reader, sent this for Marilyn Morris, who was looking for St. Bernard School’s barbecue from the 1950s. Ann said: “The recipe I have is not from St. Bernard School but from Lockland School. However it is from the 1950s and is also called barbecue, but is more like sloppy joe. Hope this is what Marilyn Morris is looking

Rita’s do-ahead, marinated slaw

This is delicious with the barbecue and a bit different than the norm. Salad: Combine and set aside while making dressing: 6-8 cups shredded cabbage or cole slaw mix 2 carrots, sliced thin or shredded 1 bell pepper, chopped 1 cup onion, chopped

Dressing: Bring to a boil, then simmer, uncovered, 10-15 minutes or so, until slightly thickened: 1 cup sugar 1 cup cider vinegar ½ cup water 2 teaspoons mustard seed (optional but good) or ½ teaspoon celery seed (also optional)

Rita suggests roasting tomatoes to preserve them for winter cooking. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

for.” Brown 2 pounds ground beef with 4 medium onions and 2 bell peppers, chopped

Add the following and simmer: 2 tablespoons each: Worcestershire, barbecue sauce, vinegar and sugar

Add 1 bottle of ketchup. Though Ann doesn’t say how much, I would start out with a very generous cup and go from there, tasting and adding more as needed.

Grandma Weaver’s and Lisa Mauch’s mom’s barbecue

Lisa Mauch, my former editor, came to the rescue, too. Actually, her mom did. “My mom says the recipe she’s sharing isn’t precise since she just adds stuff until it looks and tastes right. She says the secret is to keep smushing the mixture. She also says she sometimes adds a dash of cinnamon and/or chocolate.” Sounds like a confident cook to me! We get a bonus here, too: Two generations sharing. Grandma Weaver’s


since I think that will keep more of the tomato flavor in). Drizzle with olive oil. Roast in preheated 400 degree oven until tomatoes start to look spotty and caramelize a bit. If you have them cut side down, the skin will inflate and get dark in spots. Let cool and, if you like, remove skins. The first time I made them I didn’t remove the skins but when I used them in cooked dishes, they were a little tough, so my suggestion is to remove them. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. Email her at with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line. Call 513-248-7130, ext. 356.

Pour dressing over cabbage mixture. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Stir before serving.

1 pound hamburger 1 ⁄3 cup ketchup 1 onion (chopped) 1 green pepper (diced) 1 tablespoon vinegar 1 tablespoon mustard 1 tablespoon sugar ½ teaspoon salt

Roasted tomatoes

Lisa’s mom’s recipe 3 pounds ground sirloin (browned) 1 chopped onion and green pepper 2 tablespoons vinegar 2-3 tablespoons mustard 1 cup sugar ½-¾ bottle of ketchup (24 oz.)

They’re in season now so it’s time to preserve them for winter dishes. When a recipe calls for canned tomatoes, you can use these. The color and flavor is amazing. No real recipe, but here’s how I do it: Cut tomatoes in half. Lay either cut side up or down (I laid mine cut side down but next time will lay them cut side up

would like a refund or all new tires.” So, I contacted the store that sold the tires and the owner told me he was unaware of the age of the tires when he sold them. Given that the tires are deteriorating after less than a year, he’s now given her a complete refund. Remember, tires can deteriorate inside even if they look alright on the outside. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says tires are only good for six to 10 years. Anything older than that, it says, are just not safe on the roads.

the car because they’re way outdated,” Metzger said. The tires Howard Metzger Ain bought HEY HOWARD! new are actually 17 years old. Clearly, the tires sat on a store shelf for years before they were sold. And technically there is no expiration date on tires, but now the government says after six years tires tend to rot and can be dangerous. Metzger said as a result of what she’s learned, “I’m very concerned. I haven’t been driving my car for the last few days. I just

Check tire age before purchasing You may not know it, but tires can wear out – even if there’s plenty of tread left on them. In some instances, even the car tires you buy new may be too old. That’s what a College Hill woman learned. Kathleen Metzger bought four new tires earlier this year and, after a few months, she started noticing problems. “It felt like it was out of alignment really bad. You had to have your hands on the wheel pretty firm in order to keep it corrected,” Metzger said. Metzger’s husband Ken put on a spare tire and, as he did, he saw the problem with the recently purchased tire. “I saw you could see the belt right at the end of the tire. These tires are falling apart. There are all these micro-cracks and fissures in the tires. I knew that was probably what the problem was,” he said. They went back to the store that had sold the tires, but were told they were only able to get a warranty based on the tread wear of the problem tires. Metztger then went to another tire store where the Department of Transportation identification was checked on the tire’s sidewall. The first two numbers of the identification tell the week in which the tire was made – in the case of one of her tires it was week 13. The next numbers tell you the year in which it was made – in that case it simply said 4, which meant 1994. “He really didn’t look at all four tires, he just looked at one and told me that they shouldn’t be on



When we were kids and attending St. Margaret of Cortona’s school in Madison Place, one of my favorite hot lunches was the barbecue. You could smell it the minute you stood on the steps going down to the cafeteria. It was Rita stringy Heikenfeld and coated RITA’S KITCHEN with just enough sauce to make it a bit drippy so when you took a bite, some would fall onto your plate – a bonus to savor with that last forkful of slaw. Apparently school lunches bring back a flood of memories for many of you.

career success

Concrete is very porous like a sponge so it sucks up all the water, dirt, and contaminants into its surface. This gives the concrete a dark look to it and will lead to cracking and spalling. Our high pressure surface cleaning will deeply flush the pours of the concrete to remove these contaminants and enhance its appearance. We then recommend an application of our penetrating sealer to help protect your concrete from cracking,spalling,and staining for years to come.
