Big Bone’s Salt Festival highlights history By Stephanie Salmons

BIG BONE — Take a trip into

times past with Big Bone Lick State Historic Site’s annual Salt Festival, Oct. 18-20. According to park naturalist Todd Young, the Salt Festival has been going on for around 30 years. It serves as a way “just to promote the park and the history of the park.” While the history of Big Bone

can be dated back much further, the Salt Festival focuses on life skills from the mid-1800s. Young says there will be a pioneer encampment and demonstrations of how pioneers traveling through the area would get salt from the area. The festival will also feature music, a clogging group on Saturday, archery demonstrations, tomahawk throwing and someSee SALT, Page A2

According to TANK spokeswoman Gina Douthat, the hub will begin offering service to downtown Cincinnati Monday, Nov. 4, via a new bus route, the No. 42X . “TANK will offer free rides on the No. 42X for the first week of service to encourage people to try it,” she said. The new hub will serve two purposes – a park and ride for up to 150 cars and serve as a transfer point between routes. “It will allow people to begin to travel between routes without having to go all the way to

FLORENCE — Kenneth Robert Warner Sr. wasn’t rich. He wasn’t famous. “He was just a good man,” his wife of 53 years, Jacqueline Vater Warner, 78, of Florence said. “He was dependable and always hard working. He was the best husband anyone could hope to

Union is falling into fall By Stephanie Salmons

UNION — Fall for fall with the city’s fourth annual Fall for All, noon to 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19. While festivities extend along Old Union Road, the core of the event will take place at the Union Community Building, 10087 Old Union Road. Parking will be available at Union Baptist Church. With food, music and myriad of family-friendly activities, the Fall for All offers residents a chance to meet new neighbors. “Union is growing at a fast pace and Union is kind of sprawled out ... Each area of Union is its own entity,” city events coordinator Karen Franxman said. “This is a chance to bring all of them together in one place as one big community.” The day, however, kicks off at 8 a.m. with the 5K Soldier Run benefiting the city’s Adopt-a-Unit program. Registration is 7-7:45 a.m. the day of the race, which begins at Union Baptist. Franxman said several soldiers from the city’s adopted military unit – the 101st Airborne Division, 1/ 32 CAV from Fort Campbell – will be racing that day as well. Cost is $25 and T-shirts will be available as supplies last for those who register after that date. Registration forms can be found at the Union City Building, 1843 Mt. Zion Road, or online at Runners can also register online at

The hounds, or rather dachshunds, are lined up at at last year’s Union Fall for All. This year, the festival is Oct. 19 along old Union Road. Union Pet Hospital will host a dachshund race at 1 p.m. PROVIDED

According to Franxman, the Adopt-a-Unit program will support 25 rooms for the visiting military members and their families. Donations to help cover those costs can be dropped off or mailed to the Union City Building. Make checks payable to RAC/ Union Adopt-a-Unit. Fall for All festivities kick off at noon and includes music, crafters and vendors. There should be activities of interest for everyone, Franxman said. “It’s just a laid back, fun community event that just allows families to come and have a good time as a family together and see a lot of different interesting things,” she said. The Union Fire Protection District will have a smoke house, said Franxman, where children can learn fire safety. Car enthusiasts can attend a cruise-in at Union Chiropractic from 1-4 p.m. Registration is $3 and the first 50 registered cars will receive a dash plaque. Fowler Creek Tavern will serve as overflow for

the cruise-in and as a beer garden, Franxman said. There will also be a beer garden at the community building. Visitors can catch a hay ride to nearby Farm Haven for $4 to go to the farm’s corn maze and petting zoo. There will also be a “pumpkin patch” with 300 small pumpkins and a decoration area for children, Franxman said. Jennifer Borcher, receptionist at Union Pet Hospital, says they’ll have an open house from 1-4 p.m. A dachshund race begins at 1 p.m. and a demonstration by the Boone County Sheriff’s K-9 unit follows there at 3 p.m. The pet hospital will also have periodic agility and training demonstrations, food, games, raffles pet pictures, adoptions and a pet psychic. A children’s costume contest begins at 5 p.m. The Adopt-a-Unit program will have a fundraiser raffle. Tickets for the quilts are $1each while the rental raffle tickets are $10 each.

A Native American drum group will be on hand Saturday and Sunday and there will be a firestarting demonstration, bread making, cooking, beading work and more, said Young, all things in the daily life of pioneers during that time period. Friday, Oct. 18, is a school day for students from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is $1. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, and from 10 a.m to 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20.

Covington and downtown Cincinnati to make a transfer,” Douthat said. “This change will be a time-saver for people, particularly as we begin to bring more and more routes into the hub.” The Florence hub was a project that came out of the 2007 Transit Network Study. According to Douthat, the city is a growing transit market for TANK and the Florence Mall and surrounding area is one of the most popular destinations for service. “We wanted a location that had close proximity to the Florence Mall and easy interstate access,” she said. “The location on Heights Boulevard was an ideal choice.” The Florence hub is the second of four transit hubs that TANK is constructing

“So many times you see books about people who are famous or who have done bad things,” she said. “I wanted people to know that there are some good people in this world who need to be remembered too.” Her son, Kenneth Robert “Bob” Warner Jr., also of Florence, said he is proud of his mother and her work. “Mom pretty well describes him in the book, everything about his personality and the way he lived his life,” Bob said. “He was true to himself and he had a set of principals and stuck with them, that’s the way he lived his life.”

in Northern Kentucky as part of a recommendation from the 2007 study. The first hub is in Fort Wright near TANK’s main garage on Madison Pike. The next hub will be located at Northern Kentucky University. “We are working with NKU at this time to determine the right location on campus and right amenities for a campus hub,” Douthat said. “The hub at

NKU will look different than our other hubs to date – there will not be a park and ride associated with it, but it will likely have different amenities that would be appealing to the university student market.” The final hub will be in the vicinity of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. The exact location has not been determined, Douthat said.

The book traces Kenneth’s life from his birth during the Great Depression in1933 in Cincinnati to his death, due to complications of diabetes, at the age of 73. A child of tumultuous times, he grew up during World War II and spent most of his life in Kentucky, Warner said. He attended college and served in the Army during the Korean War. Kenneth taught school in the south during the Civil Rights era. According to Warner, despite health complications due to having severe whooping cough as a child, Kenneth worked hard to provide for she and their five children. Warner met Kenneth in the fall of 1952 at Georgetown College. “Our first date was the homecoming football

game,” Warner said. “I had been asked to carry an ‘I Like Ike’ sign onto the field during halftime for the Young Republicans. I convinced him to carry a sign with me. He didn’t want to, but he did. There was a photo taken and it was put into the yearbook, preserved for posterity.” In June 1954, they were married. They moved to Kentaboo Avenue in Florence where Warner still resides. She said there was no real secret to the longevity of their marriage just “commitment on both sides and the old story of love at first sight.” Warner, who taught at a former Elsmere Christian school, has always wanted to write books. This is actually her second. The first is about her mother who raised more than 100 foster children. She’s written and had published poems, short stories and articles too. She’s also made picture books for her six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Her third book, “The Kentaboo Kids,” chronicling the lives of Warner and her sister growing up in Florence is due out this winter.

South of that, the book reads, woolly mammoths, mastodons, giant ground sloths, giant bison and other animals came to a salt lick. “Many were trapped in the surrounding bogs and died, their bones buried and preserved around the salt like that came to be named Big Bone Lick.” The encyclopedia says by the mid-19th century, Big Bone was “internationally renowned as one of the most important repositories of prehistoric animal bones on earth, but slowly the site was being looted and its contents carried to other locations.” Even today, fossils from Big Bone are on display at Thomas Jefferson’s Charlottesville, Va., home, Monticello.




interested in that time of history,” said Young of the festival’s continued success. According to Young, there are still paleontological and archeological collections being made at the park today, which “kind of gets people excited.” Visitors can also visit the park’s bison herd and visitor’s center where fossils found during the park’s fossil hunt will be displayed. “It’s a pretty unique day,” Young said. “You can come out, have some fun (and) do a lot of hands-on things.”

Town hall meetings address growing heroin problem By Stephanie Salmons

The Boone County Alliance for Healthy Youth’s Heroin Task Force is addressing the area’s growing heroin problem with a series of town hall meetings through the end of October. Meetings – all set for 7-9

p.m., will be: Monday, Oct. 21, at Boone County High School, 7056 Burlington Pike, Florence; Wednesday, Oct. 23, at the Main branch of the Boone County Public Library, 1786 Burlington Pike, Burlington; Monday, Oct. 28, at Walton-Verona High School,

30 School Road, Walton; and Tuesday, Oct. 29, at the Boone County Public Library’s Scheben branch, 8899 U.S. 42, Union. The organization is a local coalition aiming to raise awareness about Boone County’s heroin and prescription opioid pain killer problem.

County, a number that grew to 312 in 2012. The same year, the Drug Strike Force issued two arrests for heroin trafficking, which grew to 35 arrests last year. According to the provided information, the Florence Police Department reported 19 heroinrelated cases in 2009 but have handled 96 heroin-related cases through August this year. The heroin problem is one that impacts everyone, said Adam Howard with the Boone County Alliance. “The Heroin Task Force isn’t looking at this solely from a law enforcement perspective,” he said. “Frequently, I’ve heard from family members who were in denial that their young adult could be addicted to heroin. “The efforts of the town hall meetings are intended to help eliminate the stigma associated with a drug problem and point the families toward resources in our community.” According to Howard, the idea for the town hall meetings came after Judge J.R. Schrand called a meeting in June and encouraged the group to consider an awareness campaign in Boone County. “We started to assemble a group and formed a partnership with the Boone County Alliance to focus exclusively on the need to raise awareness about this problem,” Howard said. The task force will met in early November to decide on the group’s next step, he said.

tion and let them know there are avenues for help if they or someone they know is struggling with heroin or prescription opioid painkiller abuse.” According to information provided by the task force, prescription opioid painkillers such as Oxycodone and Hydrocodone, can have effects similar to heroin when taken in ways other than prescribed. A report by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration shows people ages 12 to 49 who used such pain killers non-medically were 19 times more likely to use heroin recently than others in that age group. Over the past five years, different Boone County agencies have reported growth in heroin abuse, related crimes and overdose deaths, the provided information reads. In 2008, the Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force arrested 53 for heroin possession in Boone

Meant to educate Boone County residents on the effects the abuses of these drugs are having in the community, an announcement says the town hall meetings aim to empower residents to take preventative steps and pursue rehabilitation services for such abuse. The meetings will feature a moderator and a panel with representatives from a local substance abuse treatment facility, a medical professional, a member of local law enforcement, an emergency medical technician and either a family of a deceased heroin or prescription pain killers addict or a recovering addict. “The stories we’ve heard from local law enforcement and the medical community paint a grim picture,” task force member and Boone County Judge-executive Gary Moore said in a release. “We want to bring these issues to the public’s atten-

Fall hiking to benefit Boone Conservancy By Stephanie Salmons

Put on your hiking boots for a trek around a Boone County park when the Boone Conservancy hosts a fall nature hike 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, at Conservancy Park Belleview, 5820 Burlington Pike, Burlington. Exhibits and conservancy representatives will be at the main picnic shelter and brochures will be available to guide hikers to stations along the trail. Light refreshments will be served and donations will be accepted. The Boone Conservancy is driven primarily by donations and contributions, said Dave Geohegan, executive director of the conservancy since May. “We don’t have a tax or anything like that to fund the conservancy, so we’re really dependent on people being generous and recognizing what the value is of public accessible green space.” The conservancy has typically had a fall fundraiser at Turfway Park each year, Geohegan said, but the organization decided this year to try something different. While the conservancy has a central core group of supporters who have been loyal and supportive, Geohegan said the board also wants to connect with more Boone County residents. There are roughly 120,000 people in the county who benefit from hav-

year to get out and check out the fall color,” Geohegan said. Proceeds from the fundraiser will go toward the development of a butterfly garden, a future trail on the site and operating expenses. For more information, call Geohegan at 859-6890834 or email

Remke Markets dropping bigg’s name from all stores In a major rebranding, Remke bigg’s will retire the bigg’s part of its name – officially becoming just Remke Markets. The Erlanger-based grocer with 13 stores throughout Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky is not making the change lightly. The switch starting next week is part of an effort to stress its lo-

cal roots that national market research shows carries weight with consumers. “Bigg’s had and has a great brand name, but we found our customers were somewhat confused by who we were with two names: Were we Remke or bigg’s?” company President Matthew Remke said.

The switch was first reported Oct. 9 on It marks the end of a grand experiment that started in 1984 when an investment group led by Minneapolis-based retailer Supervalu Inc. introduced a then-foreign concept: a supermarket that also offered general merchandise. That first bigg’s “hypermarket” in Union Township predated WalMart’s first supercenter, which opened in 1988 in Washington, Mo. Bigg’s struggled in the region after 2000 as competition intensified from not only Kroger, but other nontraditional rivals. Mass-discount stores like Wal-Mart, Target and Meijer – even drug stores like Walgreen’s and dollar stores like Dollar General – had discovered that selling food drove traffic. Remke acquired the bigg’s brand and seven stores in 2010 from Supervalu for an undisclosed sum.

Barker has near-record performance for Conner By James Weber and Gannett News Services

HEBRON — Conner High School’s senior quarterback Drew Barker was 17-of-26 for 279 yards and seven passing touchdowns as the Cougars defeated Holy Cross, 55-21. The seven passing touchdowns all came in the first half and tied him for the fourth-most in a half in state history, according to the Kentucky High School Athletic Association record book. Barker, who has committed to the University of Kentucky, has now thrown 50 touchdown passes for his career to go along with 47 rushing touchdowns. Senior Andrew Way had six receptions for 113 yards and three touchdowns and has now caught at least one touchdown pass in six of Conner’s seven games this season. He now has 10 touchdown catches for the season, grabbing at least one in six of seven Cougar games this year. Ryan Romey had four receptions for 106 yards and two touchdowns. Jesse McKeehan and Jacob Warwick also had receiving touchdowns. Jeff Martin led Conner in rushing with 90 yards and a touchdown on three carries. Head football coach Dave Trosper said he never considered leaving senior quarterback Drew Barker in the game against Holy Cross just to possibly set a record. All seven of Barker’s TD throws came in the first half, which was just one short of tying the Kentucky High School Athletic Association singlegame record for a half, and was well within reach of breaking the single-game state record of nine, but Trosper pulled him at halftime with the Cougars leading 48-14. “I don’t care about it,” said Trosper. “If records come in the course of a game that’s fine, but no one wants to set a record just to set a record. We had a normal game plan, but they were going

UNION — The Ryle High School volleyball team is having a memorable milestonefilled season so far in 2013. The Raiders are 29-3 this year heading into a match Oct. 16 and two more scheduled this weekend. Two of the losses are to a pair of the top teams in Kentucky: Assumption and Notre Dame. Along the way, Ryle beat St. Henry for the first time in team history and is ranked in the national poll for the first time, coming in at 94th. “The mindset is unbelievable,” head coach Tasha Tanner-Lovins said. “We’re having a great season. We’ve had a lot of milestones this year. We just have to keep them focused.” A big reason for the success is the depth and versatility in the lineup, signified by senior Harper Hempel, a four-year varsity player and starter. In a 3-1 win over Campbell County Oct. 10, Hempel was the main setter for the first two sets, then switched jerseys and roles as she took on the libero position, the defensive specialist job who is limited to the back row. Hempel had 11 assists as setter and is able to get quality kill attempts from the back row as well. “She can pretty much play wherever I need her to play,” Tanner-Lovins said. “She’s a great leader out there on the court. She’s a really athletic girl and she’s really smart. She knows the game. I just know I can depend on her wherever I need her.” Hempel embraces her role as a leader. “I will do anything for my team,” Hempel said. “I’m very proud of my team. Our record is the best it’s ever been. It’s awesome for my senior year.” The Raiders also feed on the versatility of sisters Ashley Bush and Hayley Bush. Both had nine assists against Campbell and double-digit figures in kills. Ashley, a 5-foot-11 junior, had 11 kills and 5-10 freshman Hayley posted 11. Those statistics have been typical for the sisters this year, as they often rotate setter duties depending on who is aligned in the back row.

Ryle junior Ashley Bush sets the ball. Ryle beat Campbell County 3-1 in volleyball Oct. 10. JAMES WEBER/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

“Ashley came back from club season and has been a big leader for us,” Tanner-Lovins said. “Hayley, most people don’t realize she’s a freshman out there. She just plays so mature so it’s nice to have them opposite of each other.” Ryle has six seniors. The 6-1 Alexa Nichols is one of the team’s main weapons up front. Sara Koester and Sophia Dellecave are key on defense, as is libero Chase Barber, who has been out with injury and whose absence led to Hempel switching roles against Campbell. “We’ve got to clean up some stuff, ball control, and get 100 percent healthy,” Tanner-Lovins said. “I’m hoping in two weeks we’re ready to go. We have a lot of depth, but we need them all to be there.” Hempel and the seniors expect to be there. “In practice, we have to go in and work really hard,” Hempel said. “We need to have that mentality that we can beat anyone.” Follow James on Twitter @RecorderWeber

and, one might believe, to the Boone County sheriff. Recruiting picked up considerably when it was rumored that there would be free beer available if a successful bridgehead was made. Michael Moreland accepted a commission to guard the beer from depredations. Any similarity to setting the fox to watch the chickens will be ignored in the face of expediency in recruiting – and the search for another “fox” was deemed imprudent if not impossible. Unlike any “real” military operations, this one came off pretty much as planned and also unlike most military operations, the reporting thereof is absolutely factual. Yes, this really happened. Absolute secrecy was assured because the only place the details were known and published was the Kentucky Post. Bruce assured us that nobody in Gallatin County ever read it! He must’a been right! Only token resistance arose and once it was known to the enemy that we had beer, defections were ram-

pant! Uncle Herb’s cannon, crew and beer were landed with only a modicum of splashing and the keg tapped while I got the cannon in place on the foot of the island and opened fire. Air cover soon arrived and “bombs” were dropped. Bruce landed with his father’s Samurai sword and officially claimed the island, declaring it a welfare state. Neither county provides any services however, as Big Bone Island no longer exists, swept away by floods and ice. Tom Schiffer is a member of the Boone County Historic Preservation Review Board.

Haters should keep speaking up

Why does government spend so much? Because we love to fix just about everything and we think we can. Government is one of the natural ways we do this together. This alone, however, would not be enough to cause us to continue spending so much more money than we’re bringing in. Now that we’re nearly $17 trillion in debt, our spending equation relies primarily on something else. On Oct. 10, The Enquirer highlighted it nicely. As part of a column extolling the virtues of Obamacare, the author of this banner piece punctuated her argument with a typical one sentence attack, “A vote to defund, delay or repeal the Affordable Care Act is unequivocally a vote to harm women.” The accusation got me a bit worked up. I like to be liked. I love the women in my life – my mother, wife, daughter and sisters-in-law with all my heart. I represent women in my law practice. Heck, I even love my mother-in-law. I might be a hater and I didn’t even know it! But it gets worse. I’ve been told that my Obamacare concerns make me want people to get sick and die, which, let’s face it, probably makes me even worse than a hater. Today, if you’re

worried about debt and you tend to favor limited government, you’re not just against sick people and women. If you think that Social Security disability benefits are out of Rob Hudson control (with benefit awards going through COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST the roof), get ready, COLUMNIST you actually want to harm disabled people. If you are concerned about increased deficit spending for more government programs, get ready, you actually want to harm the poor and children. If you oppose increased deficit spending for more free tuition for college, get ready, you actually want to harm students and young people. If you believe that raising the minimum wage will curb entry level job growth, get ready, you want to hurt the poor. If you support Medicare or Social Security reform, you want to harm older Americans – but you already knew this one. If you believe that tax hikes will hurt job growth, you want to help the

rich and hurt the poor. There you go again. If you think people should come to the country lawfully before they receive benefits funded by taxpayers, you’re against minorities. Why is this tactic so effective? It’s an easy sentence to say or write. They coined the phrase “sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me” before the advent of the Internet and social media. The “hater” is left to defend, at some length, against a tactic which can demonize and silence. Here’s a better idea. On both sides, respect everyone in the process and listen to their arguments. Present cogent points about how and why proposals should or should not be funded, without lowest common denominator shots. Meanwhile, wrongly accused haters, I hope you will keep speaking up. America needs robust debate. The kitchen will remain hot, but you’re an essential part of our democracy.

The invasion of Big Bone Island Most Boone Countians would say that no military conflict has taken place in Boone County since the Civil War ended nearly 150 years ago. In fact, 2013 is the 40th anniversary of the most recent conflict, which raged for a single day in September 1973. The caper involved a goodnatured “dispute” between the counties’ respective judge-executives: Boone’s Bruce Ferguson and Gallatin’s Ed Rey. Tom Schiffer It seemed that an island in the Ohio River COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST was slowly moving COLUMNIST down river due to erosion above and build up below the island. So much so, that Gallatin County finally claimed it as their’s! While of little economic importance, the unpopulated island was popular with duck hunters in fall and winter, and boaters during the summer season. The dispute reached proportions where both judges claimed the area as their own territory. As a consequence, Judge Ferguson set an invasion in motion to remove all doubt by claiming the area for Boone County. This author does not know who masterminded the fracas, but Randy Cochran recruited me as artillery chief. Herb Rolsen’s muzzle-loading cannon was commandeered for the occasion – likely without his knowledge – by his nephew Mike Fletcher, who was also in charge of the invasion fleet. Jerry Pilyer was recruited to provide air cover for the operation. Sacks of flour would be dropped to “soften-up” the defenders. Many of the other recruits were a pick-up lot well known in Mount Adams

Are you really listening? I am always amazed when I can be standing three feet away from my husband, or one of my children, say something that I feel is worth listening to, have them acknowledge with a head roll or slight moan, and later find that they had no idea that we had a conversation at all. I use the word conversation very loosely in those instances. My point is: how can someone look at you, answer a question – albeit with a nod – and not remember doing so? What can be even more frustrating is when those conversations include phrases like, “don’t forget,” “you really need to do this or that,” and “it’s important.” I’ve come to realize that it’s not that my children and/or husband have difficulty focusing, it’s Julie House just that sometimes COMMUNITY when I want to talk, RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST what they’re doing seems more important or pressing to them at the time. And giving their full attention to both is nearly impossible. The game they’re playing or the show they’re watching takes center stage and drifts off into their long-term memory where they can remember and reminisce about it with friends or one another for eternity. Meanwhile, my urging to clean a room, pick up a dirty sock, or pick up a child from violin practice takes a back seat, drifting into the short-term memory, soon to be lost for eternity. Although my husband has never forgotten a child at violin, we have had to “rehash” weekly schedules, to ensure we were both on the same page. And if I am honest, my husband and children aren’t the only ones who have had to say, “Did we talk about this?” It causes me to wonder, How often has God had to “rehash” his plans for me, when my focus was elsewhere? How many times has he told me, “don’t forget,” “you really need to do this or that,” and “this is really important?” My husband is notorious around our house for saying, “If you would have just listened the first time ...,” and it’s so true. If they would listen the first time, there would be no negative consequences. No privileges taken away, and no guilt or sorrow. How true this must be for you and me as well. If we would just listen to the initial promptings of the Holy Spirit, we could bathe in the privileges and promises of God. We could avoid the negative consequences and guilt and sorrow that so often come with “not listening the first time.” But how can I hear the Holy Spirit when my mind is so filled with other things? Use the method I use on my children. “Put down the remote, iPad or book and look at me and listen very closely.” Try it on your heavenly father. Put down the remote, book or iPad, turn to him, ask him to speak and listen very closely. As you do, remember what Jesus promised in his word, “When he, the spirit of truth has come, he will guide you into all truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak; and he will tell you things to come.” (John 16:13) May you be blessed in the coming week, with a very clear “chore list” from your heavenly father. And upon accomplishing all your tasks experience an abundant “allowance” of his provisions, mercy and love.

Harvest time at N.Ky’s first winery By Chris Mayhew


he novelty of harvesting grapes in a vineyard attracted volunteers 10 years ago to StoneBrook Winery in Camp Springs. Now paid workers do the picking. “In 2001 we were the first vineyard in Northern Kentucky,” said owner Dennis Walter. The president of the Kentucky Grape and Wine Council, Walter said the past 10 years has seen Northern Kentucky’s wine industry mature. Other people grew grapes as a hobby, but not as a commercial enterprise, he said. Now StoneBrook is among eight wineries in Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties, and there are more than 30 people growing grapes to sell without having a winery. “Before it was just kind of a new crop,” Walter said. “Everybody was kind of scratching their heads wondering if you could actually grow grapes in Kentucky to begin with and Northern Kentucky in particular. We’ve proved over the years that you can grow grapes. You can make great wine.” Wineries in Northern Kentucky have stopped having to prove themselves. Walter said StoneBrook

wines have earned medals in international, state and local competitions. There is a StoneBrook tasting kiosk with a seating area at Newport on the Levee in addition to a tasting room in Camp Springs. “We’ve proven to ourselves and to our customers that we can do a good job,” he said. Switching to grape production was another reinvention for Walter’s family farm. Before grapes he was a cattle farmer, and his family raised tobacco. He has 10 acres of grape vines, and on Oct. 10 harvested his final field to gather about four tons of cabernet franc, a red wine grape variety. Walter first planted and bottled vidal blanc, a grape he uses to make a white wine by the same name. More than five tons of vidal blanc grapes were picked at StoneBrook this year. “The vidal blanc is where we hang our hat,” he said. Vidal blanc, which makes a sweeter wine, remains the winery’s top selling variety. But sales of the cabernet franc, a dry wine, is on pace to overtake vidal blanc sales, he said. “Usually in new wine country you have a lot more sweet wine drinkers than dry wine drinkers,” Walter said. “But as the industry

ages and your consuming public ages they tend to go little dryer.” Walter still gets excited at harvest time. “You look back and say, ‘Yeah we did a great job.’ We’ve weathered the wet weather and the mildews and some of these things that Mother Nature throws at you throughout the year. And you end up with a nice crop, so it’s kind of a good feeling.” The StoneBrook winemaking shop is near the bottom of his hillside vineyard fields. The grapes are

dumped by hand into a crushing machine. Stems are spit out of the machine’s side, and the juice and skins are piped into a 1-ton fermenting tank. “This is where the reds will ferment on their skins in this tank,” he said. “And the reason we do that is so that the grapes get color. So, they get a red color.” The red cabernet franc grapes will ferment for 10-15 days and are then put in a press, Walter said. “We’ll press them and

thus we have red wine,” he said. “And from there they’ll go into either stainless steel or oak barrels to be aged.” Aging red wine takes about two years, he said. “The longer, the better for the reds.” The Central Kentucky area around Lexington has been where the largest number of wineries in the state have been located, said Tyler Madison, director of grape and wine marketing for the Kentucky Department of Agriculture and the Kentucky Grape and Wine Council. “I could see Northern Kentucky rivaling Central Kentucky eventually,” Madison said. Northern Kentucky has a history of quality wines. German immigrants planted vineyards in the 19th century when the area was called the American Rhine, he said. Then came a vine-killing blight and Prohibition. “The industry basically got wiped out,” he said. In Kentucky 10 years ago there were less than 100 acres of vineyard, Madison said. “There is close to 600 acres in the state now,” he said. “And 10 years ago we had a dozen wineries, and we have 70 licensed and 68 operating now. That means there will probably be a couple more wineries soon.”

Pea salad just like one from Hotel Sinton Today we started our first fire in the wood stove for the season. But it was a little weird, too, because when I looked out the window, the impatiens were a riot of color in the window boxes and the morning glories looked like a burst of blue sky Rita climbing Heikenfeld up the RITA’S KITCHEN white picket fence. The weather had turned quite chilly and it really was a perfect morning to have a nice, aromatic fire. If you ask most folks, they will tell you fall is their favorite time of year. I guess it’s because the outside work is winding down and so are we. And there’s nothing quite so beautiful as a mosaic of reds, browns and yellows as the leaves carpet our old country road.

Hotel Sinton’s spring pea salad

I was glad to get so many responses to Jan B.’s request for the Hotel Sinton pea salad. As always, thanks, thanks, thanks! The recipe from Juliane B., a Colerain township reader, was exactly like the one originally published by Cheri Brinkman in her first book of the best-selling series: “Cincinnati and Soup.” Now that I’ve seen the recipe, I know I’ve eaten it and liked the salad a

the way if you want (you’ll get a smaller yield). Immediately roll bottoms in your choice of toppings. Set on sprayed pan to dry.

Can you help?

Manyet Bakery’s cheesecake: I don’t want to disappoint Pat Barth, who asked again if any of you have the recipe or a similar one from this beloved Newport Bakery. This is the bakery that made the famous radio rolls and for which I found a similar recipe that I still promise to post on my blog. Frisch’s ranch dressing: I’ve had a couple requests for this, so if you have a similar recipe, please share.

Stay tuned!

lot. Juliane said she’s made it several times and people love it. Cheri told me: “This is a rare one as it is a salad dressing, not a true pea salad. It came from an older lady I knew who actually learned to cook in the kitchen of the old Hotel Sinton. What is interesting in this is the amount of mayonnaise in the salad; this may be lessened by the cook if they choose. The most important thing to stress here is that it should be served by tablespoon over

chopped lettuce not as a solo salad – that was not what they did in “the good old days.” Best made ahead. FYI Cheri just published her latest, and best-selling, book “Cincinnati and Soup: Festivals and Frolics.”

SD1 hosts Halloween tours

Villa Hills — Billions of live microscopic bugs. Toxic gases. Mysterious processes. It’s not another haunted house, but it might just be the most bizarre adventure you’ll experience this fall: tours of Sanitation District No. 1’s (SD1’s) Dry Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant. “Dry Creek may not be haunted, but there’s nothing scarier than being responsible for treating 34 million gallons of sewage every day,” said David Rager, SD1’s executive Director. Most people don’t realize that what you

tions and learn about the organization prior to the test, but no one showed up. That doesn’t mean there aren’t Mensa members nearby, nor does it mean that no one is interested. Brenda Clark, the library’s adult programmer, said test-takers were already registered. She also said she wanted to set up the meeting and testing for quite a while. “Mensa is one of those organizations that we thought would be great to have here at the library, so we reached out and they were kind enough to come across the river and help us out,” she said.


Northern Kentucky’s best and brightest don’t have to travel very far to learn about or test for Mensa, but they probably already figured that out. The William A. Durr branch of the Kenton County Public Library hosted an informational meeting about the worldwide social nonprofit organization Oct. 7, and will have testing Sunday, Oct. 13.

Question: I’m getting ready to start my outdoor fall clean-up. The trees and bushes in my landscape are getting too big. Should I go ahead and fertilize them when I cut them back? Answer: There is a popular myth or misunMike derstandKlahr ing that HORTICULTURE circulates CONCERNS around at this time of year. It says that fall is the time to do most of your pruning and cutting back of trees and shrubs, as you clean up the landscape for winter. Well, actually that is bad advice for this part of the country. Late summer and fall is a time when trees and shrubs naturally acclimate, or harden off, for winter. As the days grow shorter and temperatures cool down, this process takes place on its own, unless we interrupt it by pruning heavily or applying excessive nitrogen fertilizer at this time of year. Pruning and heavy fertilizing with nitrogen are invigorating processes, stimulating the tree into growth, or at least putting the tree into growth mode.

for winter. New growth now, or even the internal changes and dehardening processes at the cellular level which precede actual visible growth, will result in tender plant tissue that is easily damaged by cold weather, which could lead to a weakened or dead plant by next summer. Pruning cuts now would also leave fresh wounds exposed to the cold. Spring-blooming landscape trees and shrubs like redbud, lilacs and forsythias, should be pruned within two weeks after their flowers fade. Pruning these plants from July through their normal spring bloom time would remove potential flowers, since these plants make their flower buds the previous season and then bloom on their old wood. Summerblooming trees and shrubs like butterfly-

bush, annabelle hydrangea and rose-of-sharon start flowering in June or later and should be pruned in early March before growth begins. These plants make their flower buds as they put out growth in the spring, and then they bloom on the new wood. Shade trees can be pruned in March or June (including all types of maples, ash, oaks, honeylocust, etc.). Some trees (like birch, yellowwood, elm and maple) may bleed, or lose sap, after being pruned in March. This does not actually harm the tree, but if you want to avoid it you can wait until June to prune these species (although branches will be heavier and bulkier to haul away due to all the leaves at that time). Landscape trees and shrubs should be fertilized in late November or early March, based on soil test results. Following these guidelines will help assure strong, healthy trees in the years ahead. Mike Klahr is the Boone County extension agent for horticulture.

‘Sunshine vitamin’ important It is called the “sunshine vitamin” because our bodies can make it when exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D helps our bodies absorb calcium and phosphorus from foods. All of these nutrients are needed for strong bones. Vitamin D is also used for other functions in our bodies and is important for muscle health. Vitamin D levels can be easily checked through a blood test ordered by your health care provider. In the 1930s, legislation was passed to fortify dairy milk with vitamin D to help in the fight against rickets. Rickets is a childhood disease often associated with bowed legs. Osteomalacia is a disease of adults with vitamin D deficiency. Osteomalacia results in weak bones and muscles. Adults with vitamin D deficiency are at higher risk of falls. The recommended daily allowance, set in 2010, is 600 IU for those ages 1-70. For those ages 71 and older the recommended allowance is 800 IU per day. Vitamin D is found naturally in several foods. Fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, and mackerel are among the best sources. Beef liver, cheese and egg yolks provide small amounts. Almost all milk in the

U.S. is fortified with 400 IU of vitamin D per quart. Foods made with milk like Diane cheese and Mason ice cream EXTENSION are usuNOTES ally not fortified. Vitamin D is often added to breakfast cereals. It may also be found in some brands of orange juice, yogurt, margarine, and nondairy beverages. Be sure to check the label for vitamin D fortification. Exposure to the sun allows the body to produce vitamin D. However, exposure through a window does not allow for the skin to produce

vitamin D. Cloudy days, shade, and having darkcolored skin cuts down on the amount of vitamin D the skin makes. Vitamin D is fat-soluble. It can be stored in the body for future use. Too much vitamin D can cause health problems just as too little can. It is best to discuss your vitamin D levels with your healthcare provider. Also discuss any vitamin supplements with them to ensure optimal health. Take a close look at the foods you eat to see if you are getting adequate amounts of vitamin D for your health.

Rotarians urge to live their motto Jack McAllister, Rotary district governor, urged Rotarians to “Engage Rotary – Change Lives” at a recent presentation to the Florence Rotary Club. McAllister is a graduate of the University of Kentucky, and a member of the UK Agriculture Alumni Association. A member of Rotary

for the past 34 years, McAllister reminded everyone about the good that Rotary International does throughout the world. He stressed that Rotary’s motto of “Service Above Self” cannot be simply words. The Florence Rotary Club was commended for its fundraising for The Mary Rose Mission,

which will provide meals for those in need, scholarships, gospel concerts benefiting local charities, Shoes for Orphan Souls which provides shoes to children, the Alltech Coffee project, and the work Rotarians have done in helping to stamp out the polio virus. Submitted by Mack Slocum
