FLORENCE - David A. Osborne is looking for another term on Florence City Council. Osborne is one of five candidates on the Nov. 8 ballot to fill the vacancy on Florence City Council left by the death of Ted Bushelman in March. Osborne was appointed by City Council to serve in Bushelman’s place until the November election. Osborne, a lifelong Florence resident, currently works as a part-time code enforcement office

surveys average a 13 percent return rate, and Florence will likely be about the same, Tucker said. The survey can be done by the copy that comes in the mail or online. Both forms will instruct the survey taker to only take the survey once, said Shamima Ahmed, the professor overseeing the project. However, there is the possibility that someone can take the survey multiple times, Ahmed said. “I don’t think there’s any way to eliminate it,” said Mayor Diane Whalen. The only costs associated with the survey are printing, postage and a small donation to NKU’s MPA program. “They allow us to survey our residents without spending a high amount of money on a professional survey,” Whalen said. Survey results are expected by the end of NKU’s fall semester, Tucker said. For more about your community, visit www.NKY.com/florence.

for Boone County, a job he formerly did fulltime. He’s served on council for over two decades, and Osborne points Osborne to that experience as one of his strengths. In that time, he and other council members have worked on budgets and projects that have kept Florence improving, Osborne said. “Florence has a plan we have

tried to follow,” he said. Since the winner will be filling Bushelman’s seat, the winner should have the same goals as Bushelman, Osborne said. “I want to follow through with those,” he said. One of the most important skills a council member can have is getting along well with the

city’s staff and administration, Osborne said. “They’re the ones that make us look good,” he said. Years of experience and interaction have allowed city employees and Osborne to build a rapport, Osborne said. “We have an excellent relationship with the employees and staff,” he said. If Osborne is elected Nov. 8, he would serve for the remainder of Bushelman’s term, set to end Dec. 31, 2012. For more about your community, visit www.NKY.com/florence.

FLORENCE - Residents and business owners will get their chance to weigh in on how Florence is doing. The Florence city/resident satisfaction survey is scheduled to go out in the mail Friday, Oct. 21. The survey is being conducted by three students in Northern Kentucky University’s Master’s of Public Administration program. Jessica Tucker, one of the students working on the project, visited City Council to explain how the survey will work and what will be asked. Residents and business owners will be asked to rate the city on services, professionalism, quality of life and other topics. The city offered a similar survey in 2003. Many of the questions will remain identical to see how the surveys compare. “How have we improved since 2003?” Tucker asked. Those taking the survey will be able to rank the city’s priorities and indicate their level of satisfaction for services received for taxes paid. The survey will take about 15 minutes to complete and answers will be anonymous, although demographic information and specific neighborhoods where residents live will be asked. Municipalities that do similar

Public hearing set on Union gaslight upgrade By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

UNION - A Union neighborhood may be one step closer to converting gas streetlights to electric. Residents of Union Village have addressed the city several times about the issue. City officials agreed in 2009 to pay toward the costs of gaslights in that neighborhood what electric charges typically cost. The city covers the usage costs of electric streetlights, about $10.67 per light, elsewhere in the community. The Union Village home owners association has been absorbing the rest of the costs for the gaslights, city engineer Barry Burke previously told The Recorder. Earlier this year, the organization received a plan from Duke Energy for the conversion of 20 lights. Burke said in a phone conversation the HOA is responsible for removing the gaslights. The HOA has requested public assistance for the project, a comprehensive report prepared by Burke says. “The city of Union proposes to finance the majority of the project by special assessments and be reimbursed for the costs incurred equally distributed to the approximate 149 benefited property owners within the area of Union Village served by the

improvement,” the report reads. Burke told city commissioners Oct. 3 the HOA would like the special assessment for a 10-year term with an annual assessment of less than $35 a year. The city and HOA decided on the option which requires a one-time lump sum payment for equipment costs totaling $36,197. The HOA requested public financing for 100 percent of that option in addition to other administrative costs, the report reads. Borrowing the total $39,896 (which not only includes the cost of the project but $3,500 for city costs and a $200 closing fee) “equates to roughly $33.15 for each of the 149 benefited property owners,” Burke said at the meeting. The special assessment will last for 10 years. Union Village homeowners can also choose to make a one-time, $267.76 payment to avoid the 10 years of assessment. According to the report, the city’s cost for maintenance and energy usage for the 20 lights will be around $5.85 per month per light. A public hearing on the matter is scheduled at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 24, at the Union Community Building, 10087 Old Union Road, Union. The comprehensive report can be examined during normal business hours at the Union City Building, 1843 Mt. Zion Road, Union.

Also on the hills along 275 Turkeyfoot east to the Ohio river.” Deb Minnard sent a

photo of a fall scene at the Creation Museum in Petersburg. “I was in Michigan a week ago and saw a lot of color but around here there isn’t a lot of widespread color yet but rather a few really intense spots,” Minnard wrote. “I photographed a truly lovely spot this morning. The color isn’t terribly intense but the overall scene is gorgeous. What a wonderful setting,” she said of the Creation Museum spot. Send your recommendations to ndaly@nky.com.

Accident-free bus drivers honored By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

Boone County Schools had a big jump in accident-free bus drivers. The Boone County Schools Board of Education honored 65 of its bus drivers who had at least one year without an accident. While some were honored for

their first year without an accident, many were recognized for reaching milestones of five, 10 and, in the case of Barbara Bell, 26 years of accident free driving. “Sometimes they are overlooked in our education department, but they are so important,” said Virginia Lainhart. Lainhart is a part of the Woodmen of the World Life Insurance

group that has been recognizing safe bus drivers for 20 years. In her 20 years, there’s never been as many drivers recognized as this year, Lainhart said. Last year, a total of 13 drivers reached the goal. The big jump can be credited to added training for drivers and a serious commitment to safety by the drivers, said Superintendent

Randy Poe. “They’re hauling precious cargo, and they take it very seriously,” said board chairman Steve Kinman. Along with honoring safe drivers, Poe and Kinman stressed how important bus drivers are to the education process. “We can’t educate them if they don’t get them here safely,” Poe

said. While the school day may start at 7:30 a.m. for many, bus drivers are up at 5:30 a.m. getting ready to get students to school, Kinman said, “They’re the first contact kids have with us,” he said. For more about your community, visit www.NKY.com/boonecounty.

Classes help parents with child’s education By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

Parents are getting new options to help with their children’s education. Boone County Schools has started its Parent University, which offers a range of courses tailored to their needs. “My hope is that this provides an opportunity and a forum for parents to understand education,” said Anna Marie Tracy, the district’s No Child Left Behind supervisor. Courses include topics like ADHD, scholarship hunting and others. Parents have a wide variety of needs depending on the age of their children, disabilities, giftedness and many other factors. That’s why there are classes to help as many parents as possible, Tracy said. “It’s kind of a one stop shop,” she said. In the past, courses offered in the Parent Univer-

sity may have been offered at a particular school, but the rest of the district was unaware of them. By combining under the Parent University, parents can be more aware of the resources available, Tracy said. Courses are taught by experts in the respective fields, Boone County Schools staff and community members. While the goal is to help parents, Tracy is particularly proud that parents in the community will get an opportunity to hear from district staff that tends to teach mostly in the classroom, she said. Tracy is planning to run a Parent University in the fall and the spring and adjust course availability based on demand. All the courses in the Parent University are available to parents for free. “I’ve tried to eliminate the barriers to parent participation,” Tracy said. The fall courses will run through early November. A full list of courses is available at http:// tinyurl.com/booneparent.

If homeowners in different school districts compared property tax bills, they may be shocked at the variation in the school tax rates. For example, in the 18 districts in the six Northern Kentucky counties, residents in Grant County Schools have the lowest rate at $5.25 per $1,000 of assessed property value. Those in Silver Grove Schools, a one-school district of about 220 students, pay the highest at $11.76 per $1,000. But there is no single reason for the inconsistencies. In fact, several variables come into play when the rate is set by boards of education. Each fall, Kentucky school boards can raise taxes 4 percent without putting it on a ballot. Anything higher would be subject to voter recall and a subsequent vote by citizens in that district. That freedom to increase taxes is the main reason school levies, common in states such as Ohio, rarely happen here. In fact, only a couple have taken place in the last decade. Voters in Southgate Independent Schools passed a 42 percent increase in 2004. A proposed increase of 1.7 cents per $100 of assessed value in Campbell County Schools failed in 2005. In Silver Grove, the school board passed the 4 percent increase this year. Melanie Pelle, current chairwoman and member of the board for 16 years, said a big reason was because the tax assessment on Lafarge North America’s gypsum plant, the city’s primary source of tax revenue, was lowered by $7 million. She also said several homes are in foreclosure. “And the state has cut our funds the last three or four years,” Pelle said. “I know it’s tough economic times, but Silver Grove School is the heart of this community.” In Grant County, the school board was able to avoid the 4 percent increase this year because higher property valuations increased revenues. Richard Bredenberg, the board chairman, said he hopes the Creation Museum’s Ark Encounter theme park, which could open as early as 2014 in the county, will significantly boost revenue and keep taxes down. But right now, the board is just taking it year to year. “Every year the (state funding) formula seems to decrease. Next school year will have to be determined by the circumstances then,” Bredenberg said. “But we’ll hold the line as long as we can.” Some districts also benefit from other revenue sources that enable them to keep property taxes lower. For example, the Kenton County School District, which has not taken the 4 percent increase the

Taxes per $1,000 of assessed value

Beechwood Independent - $7.58 Bellevue Independent - $7.04 Boone County - $5.79 Campbell County - $5.64 Covington Independent - $11.17 Dayton Independent - $9.28 Erlanger-Elsmere Independent - $7.43 Fort Thomas Independent - $9.15 Gallatin County - $6.66 Grant County - $5.25 Kenton County - $5.57 Ludlow Independent - $7.02 Newport Independent - $9.27 Pendleton County - $6.06 Silver Grove Independent - $11.76 Southgate Independent - $8.80 Walton-Verona Independent - $10.06 Williamstown Independent - $8.91

Source: Kentucky Department of Education last three years, has a utility tax of 3 percent that should generate about $6.4 million this school year. The district also received $1.8 million this year in grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for staff professional development, and has a few new energyefficient schools that have reduced energy costs by more than $3 million the last four years. “The utility tax certainly helps the revenue,” said board chairwoman Karen Collins, “but one of the biggest things is all we’ve saved in utilities.” Covington Independent Schools does not have a utility tax, and has very old buildings. The district passed the 4 percent hike this year, and has the second-highest rate in the area at $11.17 per $1,000. Krista Athey, the board chairwoman, said the 4 percent increase will help pay for a 1 percent raise in teachers’ salaries as the district tries to compete with neighboring districts for the best teachers. “If we’re not competitive with other districts, we will fail our students,” Athey said. Covington also faces the challenges that most urban areas face. The city had more than 1,000 foreclosed homes from 2000 through 2009, and the students the district serves include 89 percent who live below the poverty level, nearly 15 percent classified as homeless, 32 percent who are transient and 22 percent who have special education needs. “The board is not trying to suck in as much money as we can,” Athey said. “But we believe anytime there are resources available, we have to make sure to get them and pass them on to our children.” And while merging smaller districts into larger districts could lower taxes, the smaller districts aren’t interested. “I don’t think bigger is always better,” Pelle said. “Our students receive a lot of one-on-one ... and do not get lost in the shuffle.”

Scout adds outdoor classroom to Gateway By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

Thanks to an Eagle Scout, the Boone County Gateway campus has a new classroom. Wesley Brown, a senior at Scott High School, created an amphitheater-style outdoor classroom at the Boone County Gateway Community and Technical College campus. Brown, a member of Boy Scout Troop 236 in Crestview Hills, undertook the project to earn his Eagle Scout, and wanted to help somewhere the work would have a lasting impact.

“I know it was an upand-coming college,” Brown said. Brown worked with Jack Keller, special assistant to Gateway president Ed Hughes. “He was very organized,” Keller said. Brown spent six months planning the project, and recruited teams of 30 workers to help with construction over two weekends. Keller was amazed that Brown provided the entire crew, and apart from making some design suggestions to fit the campus, no labor was provided by Gateway. “They did all the work,”

Wesley Brown built an outdoor classroom at the Gateway campus in Boone County. Keller said. The final project included half a dozen 8-foot-long benches, an 8-by-8 teaching platform and a mulch trail leading to the area. “It fits in very nice with the campus,” Keller said. In the remaining days of nice weather, teachers are already using the classroom

to teach class and some faculty meetings have been held there. “I knew it would be used,” Brown said. The partnership was very smooth, and the classroom will get many years of use, Keller said. “It was just a win-win situation,” he said.

Bowling approved for Rebels program By James Weber jweber@nky.com

FLORENCE – There will be varsity bowling at Boone County High School this year. The Boone County School District board of education approved varsity status for the Boone high school program at its regular monthly meeting Oct. 13. “It was a 10-month battle and we were able to push it through,” said Boone head coach Bruce High-

tchew. “I was very proud of our accomplishment. It was not easy.” Boone and the three other high schools in the district – Conner, Cooper and Ryle – had participated in bowling as a club sport for about a decade and competed against other Northern Kentucky schools. The teams also participated in a state championship tournament every year. The Kentucky High School Athletic Association has sanctioned bowling as a full varsity

sport this year and will sponsor a state championship in March. The new status requires the school district to fund the costs of the program. The Boone district policy has been to not take on additional varsity sports because of levy failures. Bowling is the first new sport under KHSAA jurisdiction in 16 years (fast-pitch softball). Hightchew, whose son Brad is one of the top returning local bowlers, and other families in the

Boone high school program have been fundraising to be self-sufficient and not require money from the school district. While bowling is only approved at Boone County High School, the opportunity is now there for the other three. “I was able to crack that nut and hopefully open the door for the other schools,” Hightchew said. “If they have the funds and they take it to their particular sitebased council, it shouldn’t be

denied. Hopefully this will pay off for the kids, especially the ones who can go to college and bowl.” The district is required to advertise the head coaching position. Hightchew, who is not a teacher, said he meets the KHSAA credentials for a varsity coach and hopes to keep the position.

Crucial district games await area teams By James Weber jweber@nky.com

BOONE COUNTY – This is crunch time for prep football in the area. While there are two weeks left in the regular season, the penultimate week will be the ultimate one in deciding the playoff paths for local teams. That is because Week 9 will be the final one for seeding games, although Week 10 could come into play if there is a three-way tie and strength of schedule comes into play for the tiebreaker. Here is a look at what is at stake. Ryle and Conner have the most to gain this week. 2A, District 5: Owen County (8-0, 3-0), WaltonVerona (6-2, 3-1), Carroll County (6-2, 1-2), Gallatin County (4-4, 1-2), Trimble County (2-6, 0-3). Walton-Verona will be the two seed and have a first-round home game Nov. 4. 2A, District 6: NCC (8-0, 3-0), Holy Cross (6-2, 3-0), Newport (4-5, 1-2), Lloyd (3-5, 1-2), Brossart (3-5, 0-4). The seeds will be decided at Newport Stadium this weekend. The Lloyd/Newport winner Friday will be the three seed and the loser the four. Holy Cross and NewCath will play Saturday for the district title, with the loser getting the two seed and a first-round home

Highlands is the district champ. Holmes and Cov

Cath meet Saturday for the two seed and a first-round home game, with the loser being the three seed. Harrison or Pendleton will at best be a 3-7 playoff team. 5A: Cooper (4-4, 3-0), Conner (4-4, 2-1), South Oldham (5-4, 2-2), Scott (3-4, 1-2), Grant County

(2-6, 0-3). Cooper is the district champ. If Conner beats Scott Friday, Conner will be the two seed and Scott the four. If Scott wins, there will be a three-way tie for second that could go down to the final games in Week 10. 6A: Campbell County (35, 3-0), Ryle (5-3, 2-1), Dixie Heights (3-5, 2-1), Boone County (5-3, 1-2), Simon Kenton (2-6, 0-4). Usually it takes an abacus, a slide rule and a book by Pythagoras to figure out this district, but not this year. Although many combinations of two-way ties are possible, the seeds are easy to sort out because of head-to-head results. No matter who wins the Campbell/Boone game, Campbell is the district champ and Boone the four seed. Ryle and Dixie Heights will play Friday for the two seed and first-round home game, with the loser being the three seed. SK finishes in fifth place and under the KHSAA realignment plan will be slotted as the fourth seed in District 2. SK will travel to national power Louisville Trinity in the first round of the playoffs.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Community spirit

A special thank you goes out to the owner Kim Skidmore, the manager Ben Nugent, and the staff of the Union Skyline Chili on U.S. 42 for their generosity and hard work. They held a benefit night for the Mason family on Sept. 12. Union resident Ella-Reid Mason is a 5-year-old girl who was recently diagnosed with cancer. The Union

Skyline donated a portion of the night’s sales to the Mason family. The Mason family refers to Ella’s many supporters as EllaReid’s Army. They certainly came out in full force that night. The turnout was incredible. There were people lined up to get in the door most of the night along with a drive-thru line that stretched out onto the road.

Building bridges to Hispanic community Relationships are very personal experiences for human beings. From the time of our birth, we learn the value of closeness to another person and the warmth that this closeness brings to our lives. BRIDGES for a Just Community exists at the nexus of building lasting, sustainable and equitable communities for all people strengthened by mutual respect, inclusion, justice and collaboration. It is through these values that BRIDGES stands in a powerful relationship with the Hispanic community to bring attention to the important contributions made by thousands of men, women and children who now call Greater Cincinnati “home.” Having contact with diverse groups is the first step in building relationships, which is why recent data signals progress. In BRIDGES’ recent study (The Greater Cincinnati Survey – Spring 2010 with the University of Cincinnati), we learned that approximately onethird of region residents who are white (32 percent) said they have contact with a Hispanic person as a good friend; and 36 percent of African Americans report the same relationship. Fortunately, in the 2010 survey, a majority of Hispanic resi-

dents said they have contact with a white person as a good friend (81 percent), which is substantially higher than the survey Lynnette 2007 report. This Heard progress bodes Community well as more Recorder efforts are made build and susguest to tain lasting relacolumnist tionships with people who are Hispanic. BRIDGES encourages our community to learn more about our Hispanic neighbors. A complete list of upcoming Hispanic events and activities is available online at www.cincinnatihhm.org. With the growth of the local Hispanic population in the 15-county Tristate area, building and sustaining meaningful relationships makes a lot of sense. The number of Hispanic residents has more than doubled in the last 10 years (from 24,630 in 2000 to 55,120 in 2010), which accounts for almost 25 percent of Greater Cincinnati’s population growth. The Hispanic population contributes $2.4 billion to the local economy.

Not only are more Hispanics and Latinos living in the area, more are visiting the region as a direct result of efforts from local Hispanic organizations. In the last few years, three national conventions advancing the Hispanic community have made Cincinnati their “home away from home” for a few days. In particular, just this past summer, Cincinnati played host to more than 19,000 attendees of the LULAC (League of United Latin American Citizens) national convention that poured millions of dollars into the local economy and offered unprecedented cultural experiences. We have much to learn from one another, and BRIDGES believes that every day of the year offers the potential to meet and begin to build a lasting relationship with someone from the Hispanic community. BRIDGES encourages everyone to participate by making an effort to get to know your Hispanic neighbors and participating in some of the special events and activities that will enrich our lives and build new relationships. For more information BRIDGES for a Just Community, please visit www.bridgescincinnati.org. Lynnette M. Heard, M.Ed. is president and CEO of BRIDGES for a Just Community.

ME & MY PET

JUSTIN B. DUKE/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

In just a few years, Judith O’Mara and her cat Bella have become inseperable.

O’Mara and cat are best friends By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

FLORENCE - After 40 years out of town, Judith O’Mara adopted her best friend. After losing her husband and moving back to Northern Kentucky, O’Mara was in need of a companion. “My sister said, ‘You should get a cat,’” O’Mara said. O’Mara visited the Boone County Animal Shelter and adopted Bella. In just a short time, the two became best friends, O’Mara said. “She’s the joy of my life,” she said. Bella is a cat who loves to be the center of attention and always wants to be with O’Mara. “She’s definitely what I

needed,” she said. Two years into their relationship, Bella is always unturning surprises, O’Mara said. In the last six months, Bella has started playing fetch. “I’ve never even thought about a cat retrieving,” O’Mara said. It was a skill Belle just started one day, she said. “I didn’t know; I didn’t train her,” O’Mara said. O’Mara looks forward to several years with her cat Bella. “She’s my best girl,” O’Mara said. “Me & My Pet” is a feature in The Community Recorder.

France trip by Rotary a lifetime memory By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

It was a summer to remember for Jack Lundy. Lundy, a member of the Florence Rotary Club, was the team chairman of a group study exchange with Rotary International that spent a month in France. “We spent all of our time in the district of Normandy,” Lundy said. Lundy took the trip with four women from around Kentucky that represented various professions like teachers and physicians. While in France, the team met with various local Rotary clubs, politicians and dignitaries. “They took us to various institutions of higher learning,” Lundy said. The team got to experience French hospitality and stayed with different host families every week. Before leaving for France, the team studied up on French language, culture and history. “We came together as a team and we went through about six months of training,” Lundy said. The training paid off when meal times came around. “We spent a lot of time eating strange food – very strange food,” Lundy said. Some of the stranger meals included goose liver and pig gullett. At each meeting, the team was asked to speak, so they worked on a special treat, Lundy said. “They always loved it if we spoke

Time as tourists

Along with meeting with various clubs, Lundy and the team also got to see a large portion of the French countryside and architecture. “We went to so many cathedrals we lost track,” Lundy joked. Each cathedral had its own unique architecture and many had their original stained glass that dates back centuries. Some of the host homes where the team stayed were several hundred years old.

Special place at a special time

Because the team stayed in Normandy, they got to visit the beaches where Allied soldiers landed to fight back German forces in World War II. “They are impressive,” Lundy said. “You begin to get a sense of what the men were up against.” Many remnants of the war remain on the beaches and monuments to all the soldiers who died can be found all over. To make the visit even more memorable, the team visited the beaches on D-Day where an emotional ceremony was held honoring the assault. “It’s something you won’t forget,” Lundy said.

Rethinking your wardrobe in a down economy We hear of people holding back on major spending, clipping coupons, and changing some of their money habits. Many family budgets now emphasize essential purchases, and limiting treats and luxuries. Clothing is not exactly a luxury, but it can eat up a large portion of a family budget. To save money, many people are rethinking the items in their closets to come up with creative ways to make clothes last longer and seem “new.” Basic

repairs, maintenance and attentive care throughout the lifespan of a garment extend it Diane can by many Mason years. Here are Extension tips: Notes some A l l o w clothing, especially shoes, to rest in between wearing. Shoes also benefit from cleaning before they are stored. Store

shoes in breathable cotton shoe bags or the cardboard boxes they came in. Plastic storage containers can trap moisture which may lead to mold and mildew growth. Air clothing after wearing it to let moisture evaporate and wrinkles relax. Airing also naturally helps deodorize clothing. Minimize washing and dry cleaning to extend the lifespan of clothes. Invest in a clothes brush and try airing and brushing your garments to refresh them, particularly woolens.

Properly store clothes and use appropriate hangers. Allow space between clothing for air flow. Promptly remove the dry cleaner’s plastic bag. Leave closet doors open to promote airflow and leave room in each drawer, rather than stuffing it full. Leaving on a light in the closet can inhibit moths and mildew. Get the most out of your clothes washer by using proper water temperatures and settings and the correct amount of detergent and softener.

Remember to wash soiled clothes promptly to avoid letting stained or soiled areas become permanent. If you cannot wash immediately, treat stains promptly to prevent them from setting. Ironing is a skill, and one that practice makes perfector at least, better. Learning to iron can give you a significant savings if you forgo the dry cleaner. Choose “no wrinkle” shirts and easy care, wash-and-dry clothing. Learn to mend clothing.

Basic repairs and maintenance are quick and easy. Plus, sewing on buttons, snaps, and repairing tears or holes will save money. Use a creative eye when looking through your clothing. See if you can combine separates with different items, or add an embellishment to make older items see and look new and updated.

Blending up a batch of Don’s Delicious Dressing “marry.” If you like French or Catalina dressings and want to try your hand at making your own, this recipe is a “must try.”

Combine:

1 cup canola oil 3 ⁄4 cup sugar 1 ⁄3 cup ketchup 1 ⁄4 cup clear vinegar Worcestershire to taste – start with a generous teaspoon Pinch of salt Small onion, grated – onions can be strong, so start out with a couple tablespoons. I chunked up a couple tablespoons and let that whirl in the blender with the rest of the ingredients.

Meringue ghosties for Halloween

I saw a photo of these in Pillsbury’s cooking magazine for Halloween. They were too cute. So I made a batch, using my own recipe. I will tell you I had to practice a little with making them. I just scooped up what didn’t look right and put the mixture back in the bag to re-form the ghosties. Start piping the head first and then go back and forth horizontally, making arms and body. 1

Don Deimling’s salad dressing

You can make this by hand, in a blender or food processor. I use a blender. Go to taste on the onion. Don suggests making it ahead for flavors to

⁄2 cup egg whites, room temperature (this makes for better volume) 1 ⁄2 teaspoon cream of tartar 1 ⁄4 teaspoon almond extract 1 ⁄8 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄2 cup sugar plus 1 tablespoon

Beat whites, cream of tartar, extract and salt on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is almost dissolved. If you’re nervous about high speed, you can use medium and it will take a bit longer. Spoon some of the mixture into a large plastic bag, smoosh out air and close bag. Cut off a small corner of bag. Squeeze bag to pipe out ghost shapes. Stick in mini chips for eyes. Bake one hour and turn oven off but leave meringues in oven with door closed for eight hours. These

A salad dressed with Don Deimling’s Delicious Salad Dressing

WIDTH

HEIGHT

Salads are a big part of mealtime at our house. I try to make homemade dressings as much as I can, and the simpler, the better. T h a t ’s why I love the dressRita ing I grew Heikenfeld up with: garlic, Rita’s kitchen l e m o n juice, olive oil, salt & pepper. But my family likes the French type dressings, too. One of my all time favorites is from friend and Milford reader, Don Deimling. In fact, I took supper over to Don and his wife, Carol, last week and wanted to make it special. So I dressed the salad with Don’s own recipe for what I call a country French type dressing. Don shared the recipe years ago in our kids’ school cookbook for St. Louis School in Owensville. That salad dressing is one of the most popular in the book. It’s a bit different from the norm, and after you make it, you’ll know why it’s been dubbed “Don’s delicious salad dressing.”

Calling home from overseas remains a very expensive proposition these days but I found the cost can be cut dramatically if you sign up for the right service and have the right equipment. When I was overseas last year I signed up for the Skype service at $6.99 a month, and was able to call home using my iPod touch and a Wi-Fi connection. I found many restaurants and stores had free Wi-Fi service so the cost to call home was limited to that Skype fee. This year I found the Skype service price dropped to $2.99 a month for calls from anywhere in the world to the United States. I signed up once again but this time I had an iPhone 4 with me. Everything was the same as last year, only this time I didn’t have to put my phone away when traveling overseas – I just turned it on “airplane mode” so I could not send or receive calls by accident and incur roaming fees. I again looked for Wi-Fi

locations so I could call home u s i n g Skype. The Skype pay service allows you to call Howard Ain l a n d l i n e Hey Howard! p h o n e s not just computers. Another big difference this time was the iPhone 4 has a Face Time video phone application. I called my brother in New York over the Skype service and he then called me on his iPad 2 using Face Time. I was able to see him clearly and he saw me. I gave him a live view of a street in Italy and was able to walk with the phone quite a distance showing him all the sights until the Wi-Fi signal was lost. I repeated this same procedure with my sons in Cincinnati – one of them was able to see my Face Time picture on his iPod touch while the other was able to view things on his

iPhone 4. The chance to be able to do real-time video from the middle of a street or a cruise ship was quite remarkable. My brother and sons said the pictures they received were very good, comparable to or even better than that from Skype – and the setup was quick and easy. This time while overseas I found there were more WiFi areas than before, but most were locked so you could not use them. My wife says sometimes I spent more time on the phone giving Face Time tours of the area than I did talking with people around me. Bottom line, this year I once again was able to call home for just pennies using Skype and Wi-Fi connections – but I was also able to give remarkable video tours of some of the sights I was seeing “live” from overseas.

It was considered the crime of the century when the lifeless form the world once knew as Pearl Bryan was discovered near the grounds known in modern times as Bobby Mackey’s Music World. Now, nearly 100 years later, as she hosted a dinner party in benefit of the Northern Kentucky Youth Foundation, Ms. Bryan’s closest relation suffered the unthinkable. One of those in attendance had met an untimely death. Whodunit? You decide.
