Boone County Schools Board of Education candidate Jesse Brewer has withdrawn from the race. Brewer, of Florence, was running against Steve Templeton for the district’s Division 3 seat, currently held by board chair Ken Cook. Brewer resigned from the race for “personal and business

reasons,” he said. His withdrawal from the race comes about two weeks after Brewer was arrested in Hamilton County after a warrant was issued because Brewer alleged-

ly failed to comply with a Cincinnati fire code order, a first-degree misdemeanor. Brewer, who works in property management, Brewer failed to “install and maintain smoke alarms in the apartment complex and failed to maintain fire apparatus access roads to the complex, impeding fire suppression and life safety operations” in an apartment building he owns in Cincinnati, according to Hamilton

County Municipal Court documents. Brewer was ordered to fix the issues Feb. 9 and as of Oct. 3, they hadn’t been completed, court records stated. Brewer was arrested Oct. 4 and released the same day. He’s entered a not guilty plea to the charge. The case is scheduled for pre-trial Oct. 23. Brewer is the second to resign from the race after Cook resigned shortly after the August filing deadline due to an instability in his employment.

Over the summer, Matt Glaster opened Umph CrossFit after seven years as a personal trainer with Silverlake and Better Bodies. After talking with one of his clients, Glaster decided to open a CrossFit only studio. “We found a perfect location here in Florence,” Glaster said.

said. Many who see CrossFit on YouTube or ESPN can be intimidated by some of the feats experienced CrossFitters can do, but at Umph, Glaster modifies the workouts so anyone can do them and build up the strength and stamina needed to eventually do full workouts, he said. “We bring CrossFit to anybody,” Glaster said. To help introduce CrossFit and help a good cause, Umph is hosting the Barbells For Boobs event, along with other CrossFit centers around the country. Starting at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, Umph will run workouts every 30 minutes and accept donations for the Mommograms in Action Grant Program that

provides funding for lowincome and uninsured women to get screenings to help prevent breast cancer. Throughout the day, door prizes and memberships will be given away. Because there will likely be newcomers, the workout will feature exercises specifically designed for those trying CrossFit for the first time, Glaster said. “We also want to have it as a modified workout for the beginners so they can work out next to the experienced CrossFitters, so they can experience the camaraderie of working out together,” he said.

“I’d had a couple people talk to me about running for the board of education, but that wasn’t something I was ready to do,” Jolley said. When the vacancy popped up, Jolley decided she’d apply and see what came of it. “I’m one of those people who gets involved,” Jolley said. Jolley was one of six to apply for the position and was appointed by the Kentucky Commissioner of Education. She will hold the seat through 2014. Having spent about a decade in city government, Jolley hopes she can continue building the relationship with the city and the school district. “I know how important community involvement is with the schools,” Jolley said. With so much time in city leadership, Jolley has gotten to know the current board members, and the transition should be fairly smooth, she said. “I’m looking forward to working with them and with (Superintendent Bob) Storer,” Jolley said.

BURLINGTON — Boone County leaders Sept. 18 named Laura Pleiman director of the county’s Human Services Department, replacing the retiring Kirk Kavanaugh. According to a memo from assistant county administrator Lisa Buerkley, Kavanaugh was set to retire Sept. 30. Pleiman will be considered a exempt part-time employee, the memo reads. It was requested that her salary be set at $49,000 a year. A county employee for three years, Pleiman has worked closely with Kavanaugh. She already receives retirement benefits because she works more than 100 hours per month and will get sick and vacation accruals, but not health insurance, Buerkley writes. Judge-executive Gary Moore said it was a bittersweet appointment, “exciting because we’re doing this great thing for Laura tonight, but it also means we’re losing one of our leaders that’s been with us for a number of years because of his (retirement).” County Administrator Jeff Earlywine said when Kavanaugh first started in April 2003, the human services department had seven full-time employees in addition to the full-time employees of the Maplewood Children’s Home which was still under county operation at the time.

Challenger Olivia Ballou was unable to attend the forum due to the demands of finishing her master’s degree. If elected, Ballou hopes to provide recreational opportunities for youth and find ways to grow economically while balancing Walton’s smalltown feel.

By Justin B. Duke

looking to lead the city of Walton. Phillip Trzop and Jim Butler will be on the Nov. 6 ballot for Walton mayor. Butler is a retired assistant fire chief who spent his career with the Florence Fire/EMS Department. Butler has served as the chairman of the Walton Fire Protection District’s board of directors and volunteers with the WaltonVerona High School varsity football team. Many spots throughout the city do not have an adequate water flow, which means firefighters aren’t able to use the hydrants to effectively fight fires, Butler said. Trzop is hoping to return to the mayor’s seat after two years out of office. Trzop was mayor for 17 years until losing a close election to Wayne Carlisle in 2010. Trzop touted his successes during his time as mayor – pointing to water and sewer system development, the building of the Walton Towne Center, the land swap deal with the Walton Fire Protection District that provided for a public works building for the city and a new station for the district. .

ald said. Challenger Margie Stewart considers herself a regular person who may not have years of political experience, but can relate with other regular people and be a conduit between the citizens and government. “I’m hoping to be a voice for the people,” Stewart said. Being that voice means improving and maintaining open communication with citizens, she said. Incumbent Mike Wood hopes to return to council after being appointed to fill an unexpired term. Like many other candidates, Wood hopes to improve communication between the city and its residents. Wood wants to continue council’s work of improving parks and water service. Being an incumbent, Wood hopes he can


Beyond school boards and city commissions, another election is being held in Boone County this year. Six residents are vying for four Boone County Soil and Water Conservation District supervisor seats up for grabs Nov. 6. On the ballot are Debra Waller Messer of Verona, Loren Hand, NanCoulter cy Barraclough, Anthony John Coulter and Mark Donnermeyer, all of Burlington, and Suzi Rittinger of Union. Conservation DisRittinger trict coordinator Mary Kathryn Dickerson said it’s the board’s duty to “carry out a sound natural resource management program in the community.” Anything relating to soil, water or renewable natural resources is “what they’re to concern themselves with.” State statute says the purpose of such a conser-

WALTON — In January, Walton is going to see a leadership shakeup. All six of its City Council seats are up for election, and only two current members are running for reelection. Most of the eight candidates presented their plans for the city at the Oct. 18 candidate forum sponsored by the Boone County Recorder. Challenger Gabriel Brown is hoping to expand on the city’s beautification and business development while working to reduce the costs of water and sewer service. If elected, Brown plans to make learning how the city is run a first priority. “You get a book in your hand and start figuring out how thing work,” Brown said. Challenger Matthew Brown is ready for the opportunity to help Walton. “I just want to serve my town,” he said. If elected, he hopes to help council look out for the citizens by “always putting their interests to our interests.” Incumbent Mark Carnahan is looking to return for his second term. “There’s some loose ends with some business in the city,” Carnahan said. Carnahan hopes to complete the city’s Edwards Avenue water project, communication with residents and split the election of council seats into differ-

ent years so there can be a better continuity of leaders. “The primary focus is to gel as a new council with the new mayor,” Carnahan said. Challenger Mark McDannold sees a disconnect between government and residents that could be cleared up. “I think we have a lack of communication between the citizenry and the government,” McDannold said. The new council will have a learning curve as they all come together for the first time, and they will have to use the resources available, like city staff, to mesh quickly, he said. Challenger Bobby McDonald runs the Oak Creek Campground in Walton, and hopes to help improve council’s communication with residents using social media, emails and any other means that will get messages out. “I think it’s time to serve my community,” McDon-

ment with the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce – serving a term as the chairman. “I’ve had this really unique opportunity to hear the hopes, thoughts, dreams and fears of job creators,” Hudson said. Job creation is a topic that’s near to Hudson’s heart, and seeing the effects of an economic downturn has been hard. “You could see the toll the crash and the Great Recession was taking on families,” Hudson said. As the economy turned for the worse in 2009, the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce worked with a coalition of the region’s business leaders to put a series of recommendations together that the federal government could use to steer out of trouble. Those recommendations included targeted infrastructure spending, reduced business taxes and a reduction in business regulations, he said. “It did not follow those recommendation,” Hudson said. With years of high unemployment, Hudson believes it’s time to revisit those ideas. A key to helping job creation is eliminating much of the restrictions on those who would create jobs, he said. Hudson’s book will be available as an e-book through and Barnes & Noble by Friday, Oct. 19, and a week later as a paperback.

Math class paints Van Gogh By Justin B. Duke

BURLINGTON — The hallways of Camp Ernst Middle School are getting a lot more colorful. A group of 15 students painted a mural of Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” as part of a math project. Every day, students have a 45minute session of “Blazer Time” where teachers guide students in a math or reading enrichment project. Art teacher Kristi Heist had her class work on the mural. “Each student got a piece and they drew it to scale,” Heist said. The eighth-graders had to use their math skills to accurately translate the famous work to the

wall in the hallway. “The only thing I did was just kind of direct it,” Heist said. So every for nine weeks, the class chipped away at the mural – 45 minutes at a time. “Some of the students teamed up to help other students who were struggling,” Heist said. Now that the painting is done, Heist is hearing from students, teachers, parents and visitors about how great it turned out, which is good news because it’ll be in the school for a long time, Heist said. “It will be a permanent fixture,” she said. While she’s happy with how the final project turned out, Heist

was most pleased with the enthusiasm her students had for the project, especially when enthusiasm isn’t the easiest thing to get from eighth-graders early in the morning, she said. “It was more fun than the math we normally do,” said Will Sebree, a student who worked on the mural. Blazer Time classes rotate four times a year on a nine-week schedule so Heist is planning to paint another three murals in the school with her next three classes. Visit for more community news

Rebels rally for regionals

PRESS PREPS HIGHLIGHTS This week’s MVP » Boone County senior Matt Melzer for being Ninth Region tournament MVP in boys soccer to help the Rebels win the regional championship.

By James Weber

FLORENCE — Evan O’Hara had several big goals for the Boone County High School boys soccer team. None bigger than the eventual winning goal in the Rebels’ 2-0 win in the Ninth Region championship game over Newport Central Catholic Oct. 19. The Rebels won their first regional championship since 2002 and were set to play in the state round of 16 Oct. 23 after Recorder print deadlines. A win puts the Rebels in the state quarterfinals1p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, at Henry Clay High School in Lexington. “It’s exciting,” said head coach Nathan Browning. “I love it for my players more than anything because it’s a once-in-alifetime experience for some of them.” O’Hara, Boone’s leading scorer for the season, notched his 23rd goal of the year early in the second half to break a scoreless tie. “Words can’t describe this feeling,” said O’Hara. “I found some room past a defender, and I

was able to poke it into the corner of the net.” Junior Brent Rice made it 2-0 midway through the second half with his fifth goal of the season. Zach Mimms posted the shutout in goal, denying the Thoroughbreds in a game markedly different from their first meeting this year: A 4-4 tie. Senior Matt Melzer was tour-

ney MVP. Seniors Evan Valentine and Philip Mensah were also all-tourney picks. Melzer, with 11 goals and eight assists this year, is a major playmaker for the Rebels. Boone beat St. Henry 1-0 in the semifinals. Haven Borkowski had the goal and Zach Mimms the shutout. The Rebels beat Holy Cross

4-0 in the quarterfinals. Haris Skiljo, O’Hara, Melzer and Phillip Prickett had the goals. Mimms had the shutout. Borkowski and Weston Blystone have eight goals apiece and Skiljo and Rian Ait Salih five each.

Jaguar volleyball roars into postseason By James Weber

UNION — The Cooper High School volleyball team has certainly improved in talent and experience over its five-year existence. That was only part of the reason the Jaguars enjoyed their best postseason performance this month. Cooper lost 3-0 to St. Henry (25-13, 25-20, 25-14) in the Ninth Region semifinals Oct. 18, ending its season at 19-13. That came one night after Cooper beat Highlands 3-0 (2515, 25-13, 25-20) to win a match in the regional for the first time ever. The Jaguars were determined to make that historic moment. “These seniors don’t want to quit and they don’t want to end their careers,” said head coach Michelle Isaac after the Highlands win. “They just want to keep playing. They have pride when they put the Cooper uniform on and that’s what drives them. They have pride in their teammates and they have pride in their school.” Seniors are Brianne Dunn, Julia Edmonds, Tonya McDine and Taylor Zingsheim. “We had great leaders in the past and that helped us get to where we are today,” said Edmonds, one of the team’s top hitters. “Our hard work is really paying off. We worked five years to get here and everyone before us built up this program to where it is now.” Cooper’s biggest win of the season was over Boone County in the 33rd District semifinals. The Jaguars pulled out a tense 3-1 decision over the Rebels to avenge a five-set loss in the regular season. Although Cooper lost to Ryle in the district final, both teams advanced to the regional tournament. Against Highlands, Edmonds and Zingsheim each had 12 kills. McDine had 17 assists. “It’s the first time we’ve ever done it, so our senior year is ending with a bang,” Zingsheim said. “We’re leaving everything on the floor.” Said Isaac: “Each girl has a role on the team and everyone is key. They have to play up to their abilities. The girls were focused tonight and they were focused in practice, working on a lot of little things.” The Jaguars have more weapons on offense than at any time in their history, including players such as sophomore Carley Powers and Hannah Reid up front. The Jaguars also have plenty of back-row defenders and passers returning. Isaac, who credits her assistant coach

Cooper (18): Campbell County 6, Holmes 5, Scott 4, Grant County 3, Ryle 3, Holy Cross 3, Boone County 1. Cooper plays Dixie Heights (3) this week. Conner (16): Campbell County 6, Scott 4, Grant County 3, Ryle 3, Holy Cross 3, Boone County 1. Conner plays Covington Catholic (7) this week. A win by South Oldham or Cov Cath moves their opponent into the top four in their ledgers. Cooper’s game against Dixie won’t. Here are the scenarios: S. Oldham wins, Conner wins: Cooper will be third. Conner will be three points behind S. Oldham and would need a whole lot of help to get the top seed. S. Oldham wins, Conner loses: The Dragons are first, Jaguars second and Cougars third. S. Oldham loses, Conner wins: Conner would pull into a tie with the Dragons, and it would come down to how all the teams in the ledger do. S. Oldham loses, Conner loses: Cooper would have a chance at the top seed, being two points behind the Dragons. The Jags will pick up one from the Holmes/Holy Cross game Oct. 26 and would like Holmes to win so they can get another point if Grant or Ryle pulls an upset. Either way, the Jags would need some additional help. Anderson County was second in District 6 and hosts the three seed in District. Montgomery County is third and will travel to the two seed. East Jessamine has to win this week to get the fourth spot or else West Jessamine gets it. The survivor there travels to the No. 1 seed. 6A: Dunbar at Campbell County, Henry Clay at Dixie Heights, Simon Kenton at Bryan Station, Ryle at Scott County, Boone County at Butler.

Crusaders’ regional runs end By James Weber

ERLANGER — Some decorated senior careers ended for the St. Henry District High School girls soccer team last week. The Crusaders lost1-0 to Newport Central Catholic in the Ninth Region semifinals at Ryle. St. Henry finished 15-6-2. Along the way, St. Henry was All “A” state runnerup and did well against a tough schedule, including a 2-1 record against downstate powers in Kentucky and a 0-1-1 record against two of Cincinnati’s best. “They’ve had tremendous careers,” said head coach Steve Lorenz. “With the schedule we have this year, it was ridiculously ambitious. Teams of any size would have trouble with that schedule and be successful. To accomplish the things we did against a schedule like that - and just their four years overall - is quite remarkable. We have raised our profile to be one of the top programs in the state. You can’t just go out and make a schedule and ask teams to play you. They’re not going to come play if they don’t think it would be worth their time.” Seniors are Rachel Berling, Maddison Bisbee, Mikala Crum, Laura Felix, Alex Isler, Libby Leedom, Jenna Litzler, Sammy Maxwell, Morgan Potts and Maria Syfert. Leedom had 22 goals and 10 assists, and ended her career with 108 goals, second in Northern Kentucky history. She will play for the University of Dayton. Litzler was the second-

leading scorer with eight goals. Potts had 13 shutouts in goal. Felix, a veteran backliner, has interest from several Division II and III schools. “She is just as important to us as Libby,” Lorenz said. “She is a tremendously talented player who could probably play wherever she would like to play, but she gets overlooked because we ask her to defend.” The St. Henry volleyball team also said goodbye to several accomplished seniors after they had a frustrating evening against rival Notre Dame in the Ninth Region final. NDA won 25-15, 25-17, 25-20, ending St. Henry’s season at 31-9. The Crusaders had won eight matches in a row over a four-week span, including the 34th District final. The loss reversed a 3-1 win by St. Henry Sept. 20 in the “Playing for a Purpose”

charity event for breast cancer research at Thomas More College. This time, NDA led 11-4 quickly in the first set and won 25-15. The Pandas held a small and steady lead throughout the second set before finishing on an 8-2 run. The teams were tied at 20 in set three before the Pandas scored the last five points. “We didn’t play from start to finish,” said Crusaders head coach Maureen Kaiser. “I don’t mind losing, but we just didn’t have it. We were a step behind every ball. You’re going to have off nights. Unfortunately, it was the finals. We had a great season. Unfortunately, it didn’t end the way we wanted it to.” Seniors Rachel Fortner had nine kills and 11 assists. Senior Abbey Bessler posted 11 kills and 16 digs. Sophomore Kendyll Kraus had 10 assists. Junior Corie Flood posted 12 digs. Other

seniors are Katie Leese, Cheyenne Tobler, Alyssa Whittle and Emily Yocum. St. Henry boys soccer lost 1-0 to Boone County in the Ninth Region semifinals. St. Henry finished 148-2. Seniors are Austin Dumas, Austin Eibel, Zach Finch, Ben Hils, Michael Lunnemann, Nick Myers, Adam Nields, Alec Nields, Gerry Otto, Mack Overberg, Todd Powers, Dillon Staub, Patrick Taylor, Brian Tobergte and Nick Wilde. St Henry beat Highlands 1-0 in the quarterfinals. Alec Nields had the goal in the second half and Kevin Cawley the shutout. The Crusaders made it to the regional tournament after defeating Villa Madonna Academy 4-0 in the 37th District tournament finals at Dixie Heights High School Check out photos from these games at blogs/preps.

Education is most important investment Re-think I’m running for re-election to the Boone County Board of Education. Under the leadership of the current board and administration, ACT test scores have risen above state and national averages. Latest results show Boone students placing ninth out of 174 districts in the state and fourth in Northern Kentucky behind Beechwood, Fort Thomas and Walton-Verona. Boone County is also first among large diverse districts. These academic achievements have been accomplished amid unprecedented growth and continual decreases in funding. In fact, Boone County receives $20 million less each year than other districts when compared to the average state per pupil expenditures. This places us near the bottom in per pupil funding.

However, even with growth and budget cuts, Boone County Schools are successful. Why? The answer is you. It’s the colSteve Kinman lective efforts COMMUNITY of thousands RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST across our county that make Boone County Schools what we are today. My opponents have no experience. Collectively, they may have attended two or three board meetings over the last few years. I have served Boone County students 12 years. One opponent filed a week prior to the deadline and the other filed on the deadline. In filing so late

you have to assume the motivation for running is political. I’m not a political person. I don’t need a political party to tell me what to do, or what to think, or for whom to vote. I’m a conservative. Always have been, always will be. I try to do the right things because of principle, not because it’s popular or politically expedient. The meetings my opponents have attended have been to protest any revenue neutral action the board has taken. Fact is, had we not taken action, more teachers would be unemployed and classroom sizes would be larger than they are now. Cutting an education budget that is already underfunded by $20 million annually makes no sense. The board has only taken the compensating rate three out

of the last four years just to maintain what we have. The compensating rate (property tax dollars) stays in Boone County. Sales tax dollars go to Frankfort and are redistributed across the state. This is where we are shortchanged. Boone County only receives 35 cents of every sales tax dollar sent to Frankfort. I believe education is more than a line item in a budget. I believe education is one of the most important investments we make as a community. Children are our greatest natural resource. Shouldn’t we do all we can to make sure they are prepared? Steve Kinman is running for reelection to Boone County Board of Education.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Board promotes student achievement

Election season is upon us. One of the most important offices in our county races is that of a school board member. School boards represent the ultimate local control in communities all across the United States. It has been found that the longevity of a quality school board along with a qualified superintendent has a direct impact on student achievement. In Boone County the board has worked together for many years. Karen Byrd has served for 18 years, I have served for 16 years, Steve Kinman has served for 12 years, Bonnie Rickert has served for six years and Ken Cook has served two separate terms on the board. The relationship of the board has promoted and supported student achievement in all of Boone County’s schools. In this election cycle two seats are unopposed. Only Steve Kinman has a challenger. Don Seely is a fine man and is challenging Steve Kinman for his seat. Chris McKinney is also a challenger. Notwithstanding, Steve Kinman

is the right man for the job. In addition to his multiple years of experience, he has a passion for students. He has a daughter in the district and has devoted much of his adult life to better public schools. He is part of a team that is committed to student achieve-

City needs team work I have been fortunate to have served with many visionary city leaders, including this current council. I am humbled to serve Florence residents and humbled by the trust they have placed in me. My father was a great role model for me. The most important advice he’s given me is “Be part of the solution rather than part of the problem.” He taught me that in order to serve effectively, you must get involved in the community. I have had the opportunity to interact with Boone County school officials regularly. Our children are important city residents. The collaboration between the city of Florence and the Boone County Board of Education is one in which students’ interests are furthered through sharing resources, goal setting for joint priorities and showcasing young talent from our schools at monthly City Council meetings. Collaboration is also required when dealing with area businesses. As chairman of the City’s Planning and Zoning

Committee, I have been on the front lines of working with businesses to implement plans that will Julie Metzger bring new jobs Aubuchon to our residents and the COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST surrounding COLUMNIST area. We are also ever-aware of how development impacts families and neighborhoods and strive to bring about the best development possible. As a business owner, I also understand what it means to be “business friendly.” We have worked with the Planning Commission to streamline the approval process for developments that fit with the city’s goals. In an era of limited resources, and a focus on doing more with less, I feel strongly that pulling together is the only answer. Julie Metzger Aubuchon, O.D., is running for re-election to Florence City Council.



A publication of

ment with fiscal responsibility. It has often been said, “if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it”. The Boone County School Board is not broken. The district has been recognized locally, statewide and nationally. Despite challenging economic times, the district has thrived. Several factors are involved: administrators, highquality teachers, board leadership and parent engagement are just a few factors. As the district moves forward we need to stay the course. Mr. Seely recently said we should not change education all the time. I concur. For that reason I hope Mr. Kinman will be able to continue his service as a board member. I would encourage you to vote for experience, dedication and commitment to students. This Nov. 6, cast your vote for Steve Kinman, Boone County School Board. Ed Massey Hebron

Re-elect Aubuchon

Julie Metzger Aubuchon has been a staple on Florence City Council since 1999 and brings to the table a comprehensive under-

standing of the many various issues affecting the city of Florence. Not only does she understand, but also she acts when issues need to be addressed. She has a proven record of maintaining low Florence city tax rates, despite increased demand in services due to growth. As a business owner, she knows the challenges of running a business and is dedicated to promoting business development in our community. And she is a tireless advocate for Florence residents, ensuring that they are not only safe via police/fire protection and decent roads, but also that they have ample recreational opportunities and excellent schools in the area. Through the years Julie has shown that she is the real deal, as she has a proven history of representing the best interests of Florence city residents. So on Election Day – Tuesday, Nov. 6 – I urge my fellow Florence citizens to re-elect Julie Metzger Aubuchon to Florence City Council. Lisa Huddleston Florence

Students will come first in decisions Serving on the Boone County school board from 2002-2008 was an honor and a privilege. I have lived in the county for more than 40 years and have always been proud of our school system. Watching the national news and seeing what some school boards have allowed to happen within their school systems makes me appreciate the conservative community we live in. My children graduated from this system and now my grandchildren are enjoying their young careers as Boone County students. As a board member, I will endeavor to keep Boone County one of the top academic systems in the state. Our recent ACT scores placed our county No. 1 in all diverse districts. If elected to the Boone County Board of Education, I will advocate: 1. Giving every student an equal opportunity to achieve and excel no matter which school is attended. 2. Establishing funds for

new buildings, buses and their services, building maintenance and additions. 3. Providing competitive Steve salaries, mainTempleton taining appropriate class COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST size and supCOLUMNIST plying sufficient materials and facilities for teachers. My motto “Kids First” will take precedence in making decisions . During my term as board member I implemented the Sportsmanship Award where a student from each county high school is honored each month at the board meetings. I also requested that the administration have students from the various schools to present the national anthem and the Pledge of Allegiance at the board meetings. Steve Templeton is a candidate for Boone County Board of Education.

Florence’s core services

As a lifelong Florence resident, graduate of Boone County High School and with a family of four, I have been entrusted with the honor of serving the citizens on Florence City Council. Our city is both blessed and faces large financial problems. As Florence citizens, we are blessed with a substantial business tax base that allows a level of services not seen in most Northern Kentucky cities. We are of course cursed with the traffic those businesses require as well as being the major west to east corridor for all of Boone County. Our Larry Brown neighborCOMMUNITY hoods are RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST withstanding the long recession but we continue to improve residential infrastructure in hopes it will spur residential rehab and development. Seeking re-election for consecutive terms, I see many previously acquired financial drains of projects ill-conceived and now weighing heavy on the future financial balance sheets, such as the poorly performing aquatic center. The redesigned golf center is getting its first full year of operations in now, so hopefully it will be able to return a positive number to the city’s finances. Our gravest issue is one not directly of our making but no less enormous, and that is pension cost. Our core service should be police, fire, EMS and infrastructure. But very soon our pension cost will force reduction or reorganization of these vital services or require raising taxes. I want to able to provide that new thinking, out of the box thinking if you will, because we are looking at three options, breaking the promise to those pension participants, cutting services or raising taxes. There are no easy answers, but we must begin now to ask the questions and plan a new course of action. We need to lead by providing solid financial footing by re-establishing our core services and be creative in how we might provide the other services given our circumstances. Making adjustments and doing the same thing over and over but expecting a different longterm result simply is not leadership. As a country, state, county and city we are facing difficult times that need business and public leadership and I respectfully ask you to demonstrate that trust in returning me to City Council. Larry Brown is running for reelection to Florence City Council.

Spooky treats for your Halloween parties

Use a natural popcorn or one that just contains salt. Out of all my recipes, these are the favorite with both the kids and adults. They taste like the kind of gourmet popcorn balls you buy at the mall. Crunchier than the recipe for Jell-O popcorn balls, which is on my blog, popcorn balls are good keepers for at least a week. If you like add some chopped salted nuts, can-

l cup creamy peanut butter ⁄3 cup water 2 eggs l box chocolate cake mix Popsicle sticks SugarCandy corn, red hots


⁄4 cup light corn syrup ⁄4 cup butter 2 teaspoons vanilla 22⁄3 cups confectioners’ sugar 1 cup mini marshmallows Orange food coloring (optional) 3


Set aside: 20 cups popped corn placed in sprayed bowl (I used three bags microwave salted popcorn)

Pour liquid over popcorn, quickly coating popcorn. Spray hands. Form into balls. Store covered at room temperature. Tips from Rita’s kitchen When making anything that has a sticky coating, spray everything: the spatula, the bowl, your hands. Homemade microwave popcorn: Put 1⁄4 cup popcorn in a brown paper bag. Fold top over a few times and secure. Place folded side up for 2 to 3 minutes or until there is 5 seconds between pops. Remove unpopped

Rita’s easy popcorn balls have a vanilla marshmallow coating. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD. kernels before making treats: Put popped corn into colander and unpopped kernels will sink to the bottom. That way no one will break a tooth, or worse, by biting into something with a hard kernel.

Meat face cheese ball

For the adult party!

Favorite cheese ball recipe, enough to fill mask (check out my video on my blog for a good one) 1 skeleton-like Halloween face mask 1 pound very thinly sliced prosciutto or other deli

meat, cut into small pieces 2 slices pimento-stuffed green olives

Line mask with plastic wrap. Layer lunch meat all around. Press cheese ball mixture into mold and make sure you press firmly so that you fill the mold. Refrigerate until firm. Unmold and remove wrap. Place olives in for eyes. Serve with crudités or crackers.

Easy black cat cookies

The kids will have fun making these. Have them sticking out of a hollowed out pumpkin.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat together peanut butter, water and eggs. Add cake mix and blend. Form into l1⁄2-inch balls and place on cookie sheet. Push in a Popsicle stick. Flatten with bottom of glass dipped in sugar. Pinch two “ears” at top of cookie. Press fork into dough to form whiskers on either side of nose. Bake l0-l2 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately add candy corn eyes and red-hot nose. Makes about 2-3 dozen.

Check road status before buying a new home normally done by the city or township. But in this subdivision the roads were not able to be Howard built acAin cording to HEY HOWARD! code, so they could not be dedicated and taken over by the township. “When Ameritek built here, the road that came up the hill, it’s not wide enough and the pitch is wrong so it has to be a private drive,” Heim said. In addition, during the downturn in the economy, the developer sold the project to another company before doing the final street paving. The new company has yet to put on the final coating. There are nine vacant lots in the subdivision and the new developer is promising once they are all sold he’ll have the money to pave the streets. Since this is a private street, the developer was not required to post a bond, so there’s no money the homeowners can go after in order to pave the

The nation’s housing slump left many home builders and developers in dire financial straits. As a result, many homeowners failed to get things they were promised in their subdivisions. That failure even extends to the streets in some areas. Deb Heim moved into the Monte Vista subdivision in Green Township eight years ago. She has a landominium in which the homeowners association takes care of the grounds outside her house. “We pay a monthly fee that covers all the mowing, snow removal, lawn care, maintenance, that type of thing,” Heim said. While gardening is covered by a homeowners association in a landominium, snow removal usually is not. That’s

roads themselves. Heim said that’s led to a decrease in the home values there. “I know of a family that would like to move and they don’t even put it up for sale because they know until the roads are fixed it’s going to be tough,” Heim said. At this point there are several patches on the streets, along with other areas in dire need of patching. “The homeowners association has had to come through every year and make patchwork on the roads just so they can stay passable,” Heim said. The cost of putting down the final coat of paving is pegged at around $50,000. The homeowners association is now talking about a special assessment to see if they can raise the money among themselves to pay for the final paving. Although this is certainly not the way it’s supposed to be in a subdivision, the developer tells me such private roads are not unusual these days. So you need to be careful. If you’re in the market for a home, check the roads to make sure you know whether or not they are public or private. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

Forum had big turnout By Ruth Meadows Recorder Contributor

The Walton Christian Church youth took advantage of another beautiful Sunday afternoon and held its Youth Gathering at the Walton Community Park at 5 p.m. The Election Forum was a great success, thanks to a great community turnout. Thanks to Editor Nancy Daly and the Boone County Recorder for organizing and moderating. Thanks to Mayor Paula Jolley and the city for use of the Walton Senior Center. All the candidates for the Walton-Verona School Board and the city of Walton were present but Olivia Ballou, city candidate. Ballou was out of town and sent Daly a resume e-mail, which was read. Questions asked why each candidate felt he was qualified to run for office and what he could do to keep the city in progress. There were questions on development, water and sewer, Veterans Memorial and communication to the citizens. All were answered in a positive way.


I felt that meeting and hearing the candidates helped in making our voting decisions. A nice crowd enjoyed all the “Pioneer Days” activities at the Gaines Historical Tavern on Saturday. Later, 140 people chose to be involved with Bridget Striker’s scary tales and the Ghost Walk. Congratulation to the Dairy Delight. They are celebrating their first year, although we all have much longer memories of the Dairy Delight and are glad you are here. Pam Cottongim says they have specials this month by offering $2 off their pizza and are serving homemade soups. We wish them continued success. The Boone County Historical Society is having a
