HOME TURF A10 Conner earns another game there

BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Hutcherson’s part is a perfect ACT score

Brother of actor rated high in academics By Melissa Stewart mstewart@nky.com

UNION — Athletic wins and great on-stage performances are met with a cheering crowd. Acing a test, however, is often a quiet victory for a student. That’s not the case at Ryle High School, according to Connor Hutcherson. The senior recently received a top composite score of 36 on the ACT – a per-

fect score. The accolades are given to Connor this time, as he usually watches his older brother – actor Josh – walk red carpets in Hollywood. “Usually our society doesn’t focus on academics and when people make those strides,” Connor said. “At our school, everyone has been genuinely congratulatory. That’s nice to see in a high school.” Ryle Principal Matthew Turner called Connor’s score “an outstanding achievement.” “I am very happy for him and certainly very proud of him,” he said. “He is a very thoughtful

young man and takes great pride in his academic work. A perfect score on the ACT takes an extremely high knowledge base and advanced skill.” Nationally, while the actual number of students earning a 36 varies from year to year, on average, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn the top score. Among test takers in the high school graduating class of 2013, only 1,162 of more than 1.8 million students earned the honor. According to Turner, Hutcherson is the first student in

Parishioners living out faith on day of service By Melissa Stewart mstewart@nky.com

Church plans Veterans Fair By Stephanie Salmons

FLORENCE — Members of Florence

United Methodist Church will be “living out our faith by action,” Saturday, Nov. 2, said Christy Blundy. The church has set aside that Saturday for Love Thy NeighborHOOD, a day of service. “Our church is a giving body,” Blundy said. “We wanted to set aside a specific day to reach out to people and make a connection.” Blundy is the church’s coordinator of small groups and outreach. She has been involved in organizing the day of service. On that day the church invites its members and anyone in the community to reach out to those in need. Teams will be painting the entryway of the Ida Spence United Methodist Mission in City Heights, a suburb of Covington; doing outdoor work at the church and possibly other areas in the community; and packing 600 Power Pack meals that will be distributed weekly to three Boone County schools. In addition, members and residents are invited to serve as “prayer warriors” throughout the day. “It’s going to be a good day for everyone,” Blundy said. “You’re going to know you’re doing good for someone.” Ida Spence Mission pastor director Gina Cornelius said she is excited about Florence United Methodist’s help. “Teams like these help create a safe and inviting environment for us to minister within,” she said. “I’m amazed at the difference a fresh coat of paint makes, but even more amazed by the people who take the time to apply that fresh coat of paint.” Ida Spence Mission serves those living within City Heights. The mission offers an

The program provides for children meals on weekends and school vacations. “It’s a blessing,” Burns-Kraft said of the church’s effort. “The parents love it and are very thankful. The kids get excit-

HEBRON — A community church is helping local veterans. Hebron Baptist Church will host a Veterans Fair from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, in the fellowship hall, 3435 Limaburg Road, Hebron. Open to all veterans, the fair will provide information from a variety of organizations that assist veterans, including some who provide free or discounted services and those who advocate on behalf of veterans for entitled benefits. A light lunch will be available. James Pitts, who is helping to organize the fair, said to his knowledge this is the first time Hebron Baptist has held such an event. “Our church has always been appreciative of our country’s veterans,” he said. The church’s men’s group, of which Pitts is the leader, is often looking for things to do. He said another group member, Marvin Lowe, who is a veteran, recently had discussions with those “who provide services to veterans about how many veterans did not know what was available to them.” Lowe and another member

son in the recent past. As this year’s flu season begins, the Northern Kentucky Health Department is reminding residents to protect themselves with a flu vaccination. “When it comes to flu vaccine this year, you’ve got plenty of options,” said Dr. Lynne M. Saddler, district director of health. “Certain flu vaccines can now protect against four strains of the virus, rather than the three previously offered. High-dose vaccines are available for seniors’ added protection. Even those who are allergic to eggs can find an egg-free vaccine this year. Anyone who is 6 months or older should

seek out a flu vaccine this fall.” The Health Department will offer a limited number of doses of flu vaccine by appointment at its four county health centers: » Boone County Health Center, 7505 Burlington Pike, Florence; 859-3632060 » Campbell County Health Center, 1098 Monmouth St., Newport; 859431-1704 » Grant County Health Center, 234 Barnes Road, Williamstown; 859-8245074 » Kenton County Health Center, 2002 Madison Ave., Covington; 859431-3345

“The health department is just one of countless providers who offer flu vaccine each year,” said Saddler. “Employers, pharmacies and private physicians are all out there vaccinating residents for flu. We appreciate their help in making sure that Northern Kentucky residents are protected from a virus that can, and does, cause serious complications.” Flu vaccines cause antibodies to develop in the body about two weeks after they are administered. These antibodies provide protection against infection with the viruses that are in the vaccine. This year, the health

department will administer flu shots which protect against four strains of the virus, rather than three strains as in prior years. Cost is $20, but no one will be turned away for inability to pay. Some may have the fees reduced and even eliminated through either a federal program providing vaccines to children or for individuals covered by Medicaid. “Don’t let the winter months sneak up on you without finding a source for the vaccine,” said Saddler. For more information on the flu, go to bit.ly/getvaccinated.

pressed. “This was his goal and he did it,” she said. “He’s a great kid, he’s kind, very social and very smart and athletic. He’s very wellrounded that’s the best way to describe Connor.” Huntcherson is a captain on his soccer team, speaks German, and participates in a variety of school clubs such as the academic, and speech and debate teams. His big brother, Josh, the actor known for his role as Peeta in the “The Hunger Games,” is happy

about the score, as well. “He’s extremely proud,” Connor said. “Anyone close to me knows this has been a goal of mine.” Hutcherson said that he’s taken the ACT five times since he was in seventh-grade. The first time, he received a 26. He said he hasn’t taken any special training or done any specific study preparation. “I believed that I could do it,” he said. “But I was still surprised. I was at a National Honor Society

induction and had heard we had gotten our scores. I texted my mom to see if she should look up my score. She texted me back asking what I thought I had gotten. I guessed 34 or 35. She texted back 36. I was very happy and proud. It’s nice to have accomplished this goal.” After graduation Hutcherson said he plans to attend either Stanford University or the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The Rev. Shawn Dobbins, who was installed as pastor of the church in late July, said his father is a veteran. With Veterans Day approaching and the understanding that many veterans don’t know the re-

sources available for them, Dobbins said “I think this is an opportunity for us to host that here at the church.” Those expecting to attend should contact the church office at 859-6897282.

2Cellos joining Ky. Symphony

FLORENCE — For the second time in less than a year, the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra has scored an international first – another United States orchestral debut of an internationally known duo. Award-winning and classically-trained Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, known as 2Cellos, will perform with the KSO 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, at Florence Baptist Church at Mt. Zion, 642 Mt. Zion Road, Florence. KSO music director James Cassidy said the duo is “very hot internationally.”

According to the 2Cellos website, the pair achieved success “taking the cello to a new level and breaking the boundaries between different genres of music.” Their cello version of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” went viral and lead to a record deal and an invitation to join Elton John’s worldwide tour. Since then, 2Cellos has appeared on shows including “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Ellen Degeneres Show.” The duo was also the first instrumental act to perform on “Glee.” “Being the first or-

chestra in America to showcase the incredible talents of these performers, who have taken musical crossover or ‘genre bending’ to new heights, is a real coup,” Cassidy said in an announcement. This will be one of 19 concert stops on the pair’s three-week United States tour and the only concert with an orchestra. In a phone conversation, Cassidy said the orchestra will play some classical pieces with the pair before “we just turn the stage over.” It’s much like getting two shows, he said.

Mollozzi to run for Boone county commissioner Christy Vogt Mollozzi has announced she will enter the Republican primary race for Boone County Commissioner in May. A resident of Boone County for 28 years, Mollozzi she lives in Hebron and would represent the County’s District 1. Mollozzi said she is appealing to voters who are looking for someone who shares their appreciation for the quality of life available in Boone County and the skills needed to

address the problems of one of the fastest growing counties in the nation. “My family is like so many other Boone County families. My husband Al and I chose to raise our children here because of all the County has to offer,” said Mollozzi. “A business-friendly government, low taxes and a safe environment to live and work have contributed to Boone County’s rapid growth. Our challenge now is to manage the growth responsibly.” Mollozzi is a special education teacher at Boone County High School, a position she has held for 17 years, and is the former chairwoman

of the school’s Safety Committee. She also taught in the Louisville school system early in her career and served as a graduate assistant at Western Kentucky University where she earned her bachelor’s degree with a double major in Special Education and Government and a master’s in Public Service. In addition to teaching, Mollozzi worked as a management analyst for the Food and Drug Administration in Washington, D.C. before transferring to the Cincinnati office. She served on the Boone County Board of Health from 2008 to 2011. CE-0000564560

Hebron man answers ‘Let’s Ask America’ By Ben Walpole bwalpole@nky.com

HEBRON — John Bernard has done stand-up comedy around the region for three years, so television should not have been too daunting a transition. Right? Well, actually, the Hebron resident confessed

to being plenty nervous before taping his appearance on nationally syndicated game show, “Let’s Ask America.” It’s just that a little nervous energy is standard operating procedure for Bernard. “He’s a nervous wreck right before he goes on stage every time,” said his wife, Rena Bernard.

“But to look at him on stage you would never know it. He’s a great performer. It’s like tap-dancing for him. He makes it look easy, and it’s not.” The country can judge for itself when Bernard’s episode of “Let’s Ask America” airs at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5 on WCPO, Channel 9. “It was a lot of fun,” said John, who taped the show Sept. 6. “For sure, a great experience.” “Let’s Ask America” pits four contestants against one another, competing to win as much as $50,000 by answering questions that poll public opinion about a variety of current events and pop culture topics. The catch: each contestant competes from their own home via web chat. “I just happened upon the show, and they were telling people to apply,” John said. “I’ve always thought, as a kid watching ‘Jeopar-

Out with the CNN, in with the TMZ. “I’m not really somebody who keeps up with the Kardashians,” said Bernard with a laugh. “I like to take the entertainment out of my news. But I had to watch ‘Entertainment Tonight’ and all these tabloid shows.” Bernard isn’t permitted to reveal how he did on the show before the Nov. 5 airing. He did hint, though, at an impromptu musical performance on the didgeridoo. As for his potential status as a local celebrity, he plans to play it cool and watch the episode at home with his wife and two kids. And the Bernard family may not be done with this game show thing. “I said we should try out some more games,” Rena said. “I think he’s gonna wait another year. I might try out for some shows, though.”

Conner forced two turnovers in the second half and stopped Scott inside its 10-yard line on another drive, limiting an offense averaging more than 300 yards rushing per game. “The defense played phenomenal,” Barker said. “The second half, they really stepped up big. They forced two or three turnovers and gave us a big lift.”

Kroger Marketplace not wanted

I’m a resident of the Villas of Fowler’s Creek, a lovely community of ranch style condos located directly across Highway 42 where Kroger wants to construct a new 135,000-square-foot Marketplace. I’m very concerned about traffic, noise and lighting issues and particularly the eventual decline in the value of my property. Currently our location is ideal. We enjoy pleasant surroundings by being just far enough away from commercial chaos of city life yet close enough to everything we need within a few minutes driving distance. Since the Marketplace on Mall Road is only three to four miles away, I don’t feel it’s necessary for

another in such close proximity. After rounding the bend just beyond the library on Route 42, Union actually Cheryl starts to beJones-Etson COMMUNITY PRESS come a somewhat scenic GUEST COLUMNIST and lovely stretch of highway. What a pity to clutter it with a monstrous store, gas station, etc., and pave the lovely green space to accommodate 750 parked cars! In response to an invitation from Kroger, most of our residents attended a meeting regarding their intended construction and zoning change

request. While I realize this was a fact-finding meeting, I was quite surprised by the Kroger representatives’ inability to answer several pertinent questions. All unanswered questions were written on sticky easel-size pieces of paper and affixed to the wall behind the Kroger panel. There were many sheets of paper containing many unanswered questions. Their response to leasing out-lots would be to attract upscale eateries or retailers like Marshall’s. I would not classify Marshall’s as upscale since this retailer essentially carries discounted merchandise other retailers could not sell, most of which is off season, hence the discount. A step

up perhaps from say a TJ Maxx but hardly upscale. We are concerned about the old location. While it’s currently their intention to lease/sell that space, there were no specific plans in place, so will this empty building become a white elephant or eyesore if left vacant for any length of time? At meeting’s end a Kroger spokesperson was eager to announce the new store would be replacing the furniture department with a line of clothing. This was made with such zeal I honestly believe they thought this would sway our opinion, welcome the new Marketplace with open arms and be first in line on opening day. I personally cannot ever envision myself purchasing either

of these items from a grocery store. I’ve visited the Marketplace in Walton once and found it to be a terrible waste of my time due to it’s enormous size. I’m strongly in favor of keeping the property in question zoned residential and urge Boone County Planning/Zoning and Union City Commissioners and mayor to reject Kroger’s rezoning request by voting no. Shortly after moving to this community, Target wanted to build a superstore at this location and our Commissioners voted to keep the property residential. Please – all who have a say so, I encourage you to again vote no and preserve our precious green space. Cheryl Jones-Etson lives in Union.

Are you ready for harvest time Can you smell it in the air? Can you see it on the trees? Do you feel it when you walk out of the door in the morning? Harvest time is certainly here. I realize that the vast majority of us do not consider ourselves farmers, therefore when we think of the word harvest, the word moon may come to mind before the word labor. Yet if we were to apply the principles of what a harJulie House COMMUNITY PRESS vest really means, we GUEST COLUMNIST might come to realize if we labor today, a beautiful harvest awaits tomorrow. A true harvest is a time to enjoy the fruits of all your labor. A time to look back on all your hard work, thank God for what He has provided, and spend time resting in Him and begin to thank Him for His plans for you and your family in the coming months. In our schooling this year we are studying biblical feasts. The Jewish people understand principles behind the word harvest. The new year for the Jewish people actually begins in the fall. Although we follow a solar calendar, the Jews still follow the lunar calendar and Rosh Hashanah, (this year the celebration began on Sept. 4,) announces their new year, and is a time set aside for reflection and preparation. How special to begin a new year as you are “feasting” on all the ways God has supplied for

you and your family. To reflect on the passing year, repent, and make a commitment to live a better life, a life more fully dedicated to God and His will for you and your family. During our study of Rosh Hashanah it was recommended that we simulate as many of the activities of the feast as were doable for our family. When planning one meal and the activities surrounding it seemed overwhelming, it was clear to me that our priorities have become a little jaded over the years. When praying more than a short blessing over the food felt awkward and uncomfortable, and remaining at the dinner table for more than 10 minutes seemed like more than a chore than an event, I realized the “world” had even invaded our dinner table. It’s going to take some work to transform our family. But that’s OK. I am reminded by Paul that my work is never in vain. “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:58 I am ready for a harvest aren’t you? Ready to cozy up with God’s promises, surround myself with those I love and thank God for all He has done for me, and all that He plans to do in the future. I think I can do that for a few months, how about you? Julie House is founder of Equipped Ministries, a Christian-based health and wellness program.

A publication of

Family child care provider Jenny Jenny Marquis with the group of children who are in her care.PROVIDED

Family child care has hidden treasures Earlier this month, guest columnist Karen Middendorf wrote about families in need of high-quality programs for their children, but who are often unable to afford it; especially with drastic state cuts to child-care assistance. One affordable option could be in-home family child care. In-home family child care providers are an affordable, quality Tess Hammons option for COMMUNITY PRESS families in a GUEST COLUMNIST warm, homelike setting. In addition to costing less than child care centers, independent child care providers offer more one-to-one interaction, as the group in their care is smaller than a child care center setting. Many family child care providers also offer care outside of daytime hours to ensure a safe environment for children whose parents or guardians work second and third shifts. Jenny Marquis is a family child care provider at her home in Elsmere. Last week, she took the six children in her care (including one of her own) to the pumpkin patch to gather

pumpkins. Instead of gutting and carving, they left the pulp and seeds inside the pumpkins, added topsoil, and learned about how pumpkins grow. She brings the children out to check on the pumpkins each day and discuss what’s happening to the seeds. They also gathered more pumpkins to paint – painting is a great way to nurture cognitive development, motor skills, sensory integration, creativity, and much more. Jenny also got them a pumpkin to open up for carving so they could experience taking the pulp out and use the seeds for crafts and counting games. The children range in age from 1 to 3 years old, so she is careful to provide activities that are both ageappropriate and engaging. Jenny speaks of the children as if they were her own: “The best part about it is watching them learn and grow ... to be there when the babies sit up, start to learn letters – it makes you feel like you’re doing something really great.” She adds, “It’s important to sculpt these kids to be great young adults and to be great in school. I want to help make sure they succeed.” Likewise, parents who leave children in her care do not take this for granted. The most

Children Inc. is happy to help build quality providers and empower them to become professionals in child development.

Stir-fry uses last of summer’s bell peppers As I look out my office window, I can see the vegetable garden and the pumpkin patch next to it. The garden is completely finished, not a veggie to be seen. I did pick one last big bunch of Rita zinnias, Heikenfeld marigolds RITA’S KITCHEN and cosmos from the cutting flower row for the kitchen table and was able to save seeds for next year. We still have a good amount of bell peppers, which I used for one of my favorite chicken stirfries.

Sweet and spicy chicken and veggie stir-fry Amazingly, exotic items like sambal oelek and fish sauce used to be hard to find. Now just about every grocery store carries these. Sambal olelek is a spicy condiment found in the international aisle. Ditto with the fish sauce. I usually stir in more sambal oelek after the stir-fry is done. Feel free to use your favorite vegetables in here. 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into bite size pieces and set aside 12 oz. bag fresh stir-fry vegetables or 8 oz. sugar snap peas 1 red bell pepper, sliced

⁄2 medium red onion, sliced

1

Sauce Combine and set aside: 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar 2 tablespoons soy sauce 1 tablespoon fish sauce 1 tablespoon rice vinegar 1 tablespoon sambal oelek 1 tablespoon sesame oil 3 ⁄4 teaspoon cornstarch

For garnish Sliced green onions Dry roasted peanuts

Film a pan with oil and stir-fry chicken several minutes until golden brown and done. Don’t overcook. Remove and set aside. Add a bit more oil and stir-fry veggies for several minutes until crisp tender. Stir in brown sugar mixture; cook a minute until thickened. Stir in chicken and toss to coat. Serve with sesame rice. Serves 3-4.

Sesame rice

Cook your favorite rice and stir in sesame oil and soy sauce to taste. Not too much!

Dinner in a dash: Ravioli with sautéed butternut squash and thyme I love butternut squash. It’s chock full of phytonutrients and antioxidants and is delicious in both sweet and savory dishes. Butternut squash is a bear to try to cut through and peel. What I like to do is poke it all over with a fork, microwave it on high for just a few minutes, use mitts to

Rita’s stir-fry is full of vegetables with a sweet, yet spicy, sauce.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

pull it out (it will be hot) and let it cool. The skin will have softened enough for you to slice through it without using a machete. ⁄2 medium butternut squash (about 1 pound), peeled and diced into 1⁄2-inch pieces Salt and pepper to taste 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced 1 tablespoon fresh thyme or up to 1 teaspoon dried thyme (start with 1⁄2 teaspoon and go from there) 16 oz. fresh or frozen cheese ravioli Parmesan cheese for garnish 1

Film pan with oil and add squash. Cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until almost tender. Add garlic and thyme and cook, uncovered, tossing occasionally, until squash is tender and just beginning to brown. Meanwhile, cook ravioli according to package directions. Put ravioli on platter, top with squash mixture and sprinkle generously with Parmesan. Serves 4.

years ago. I have tried over 20 recipes and none are the same.”

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Chicken safety: To wash or not. Here’s my take on it: Do not wash chicken. You’ll be splashing more bacteria over the surface of the sink, counter and yourself. No need to worry about bacteria in chicken when it’s cooked to a safe degree. The USDA says to cook a whole chicken to 165 degrees; parts to 165 degrees and ground to 165 degrees. Your visual here is to have the juices

run clear when poked with a fork. For ground chicken, it will be thoroughly cooked with no pink spots.

Safely seasoning raw chicken

Before handling the chicken, mix the seasonings in a little bowl. Discard the leftover seasoning.

Volunteers sought to teach financial basics Gannett News Service

Northern Kentucky retirees, stay-at-home parents and recent college graduates looking to add professional experience to their resumes are being sought to fill new parttime AmeriCorps positions starting tomorrow. Participants will be asked to contribute 900 hours through next August, or about 20 hours a week, said Beth Andriacco, AmeriCorps projects coordinator for the Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission.

That organization helps low income individuals and families in eight Northern Kentucky counties develop the knowledge, opportunities and resources they need to achieve self reliance. The Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission has received a grant to offer AmeriCorps’ MoneyCorps program focusing on financial literacy at its community centers. Volunteers will be trained before teaching financial literacy classes and counseling individuals and families FREE

Volunteers also will help customers file their federal and state taxes through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program. In exchange for their public service, AmeriCorps members will receive a $5,000 stipend distributed bi-weekly to help cover living expenses. They also could receive a $2,775 educational award to help pay off college loans or apply toward future schooling after they complete their service. Volunteers who are 55 and older when they begin their service also can apply the educational award from the National Service Trust to a previous student loan, or they can pass it on to a child, grandchild or foster child. The Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission is attempting to recruit volunteers through meetings of the Safety Net Alliance.

Large numbers may enter through cracks and crevices. These insects produce a stain and unpleasant order when smashed. They will leave protected sites in the spring to resume their life cycle, feeding on the sap of a wide range of plants including fruits, vegetables, ornamentals, and some field crops. Significant fruit and vegetable losses to the insect have been reported from apple and peach orchards, blackberry, field and sweet corn, tomatoes, lima beans, and green peppers.
