Streets, sidewalks to be improved
By Amanda Joering Alley firstname.lastname@example.org
Some sidewalks and streets in Fort Thomas are getting a face-lift this year as part of the city’s 2010 Capital Improvement Program. The streets included in the program are Burnet Ridge from Riverside Parkway to Lester Lane, Huntemann Lane, Sterling Avenue, Rob Roy Avenue, Deshler Lane, Crescent Court and Arno Avenue.
Deteriorated sidewalks will be replaced along East and West Kimberly Drive, Brittany Lane, Buddle Court and South Fort Thomas Avenue. Councilman Eric Haas said while many streets were considered for improvements, limited funds only allow the city to do some each year. “We are limited by the revenue we receive from the Municipal Aid Road Fund,” said City Administrator Donald Martin. “That is money
the state gives that basically comes from the gas tax.” For the street resurfacing, which is estimated to cost a total of $194,600, the bill is split 50/50 between all abutting property owners on the selected streets and the city, through the Municipal Aid Road Fund. To improve selected sidewalks, city funds will pay for the entire bill, which is estimated at $89,000. Haas said the council’s public
works committee also discussed some requests to have sidewalk constructed along streets where there is currently no sidewalk. The city’s policy states that while the city will pay to have existing sidewalks repaired, any new sidewalks would have to be paid for by the property owners where new sidewalks would be constructed. “We will continue to apply for different grants for new sidewalks,” Martin said.

Have a ‘Sweet Tooth’?
Bob Schneider has been selling candies out of his store, Sweet Tooth Candies factory, on 125 West 11th St. in Newport for 41 years. It may sound like a dream job, but it’s labor intensive, including carrying boiling, 80pound vats of chocolate around. It’s still mostly a handmade operation, Schneider said. “People say, ‘Oh, that must be so much fun,’” he said. “It’s stir, it’s push and pull and then you’ve got a big mess to clean up.” LIFE, B1

The Fort Thomas Military and Community Museum is putting its Fort Thomas Arts and Artists room to use for the next month. Now through the end of March, the museum is hosting the Skopart Exhibit, featuring art work by Fort Thomas resident Michael Skop, who passed away last May. Skop, who taught at Northern Kentucky University and ran an art school out of his home for 25 years, has received international acclaim as a student, sculptor, artist and teacher. “It’s great to be able to feature Michael Skop’s work in the museum,” said Debbie Buckley, the Fort Thomas Renaissance Coordinator. Skop’s wife, Kathy Skop, who retired from teaching art at Highlands High School and now works as a substitute art teacher at Moyer Elementary and Woodfill Elementary, put together the pieces for the exhibit. Students from the elementary schools are going to be taking field trips to see the exhibit. “They are going to be learning about community artists and this will tie into their lessons,” Skop said. Skop said she has hundreds of her husband’s art pieces, which

Cattle farmers start direct sales of beef By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
Campbell County cattle farmers are ready to sell freezer-ready cuts of beef directly to people seeking to buy food locally. The sales during two information sessions for people considering joining the program as buyers will be at the University of Kentucky’s Campbell County Cooperative Extension Service, 3500 Alexandria Pike, Highland Heights at 2 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Monday, March 15. About 15 beef producers are currently interested in working with the program including 10 from Campbell County and some from Boone, Pendleton and other counties, said Don Sorrell, Campbell County’s extension agent for agricultural and natural
resources. There will be an overview during the information sessions of how local farmers operate, delivery and meat cuts that will be provided, and a discussion of antibiotic free and hormone free beef, Sorrell said. There will also be an explanation of how much beef and space will be needed to participate in the vacuum-sealed, ready-for-thefreezer beef, he said. “And we’ll actually start taking orders that evening,” Sorrell said. The point is to connect consumers with a direct link to local farmers, he said. “There’s a lot that goes on in the county as far as agriculture that the average person north of Alexandria is not aware of,” said Vince Rawe of California, one of three brothers who owns Rawe
Brothers LLC, a freezer-beef seller. Rawe Brothers sells about 800 to 900 steers per year, taking them to auction after grazing them and feeding them from a 550pound calf to 800 or more pounds, Rawe said. The meat will be processed at a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) inspected facility and each farmer participating will sign a certificate that the cow had no hormones or antibiotics, he said. All the beef will receive the Kentucky Proud label, he said. “It’s locally grown by producers, and it’s all based on the integrity of the American farmer,” Rawe said. For information about the program or to make reservations to attend the March 15 informational meetings call Don Sorrell at 572-2600.
What started as a school fundraiser is now becoming a nationally recognized attraction. In the March issue of “Southern Living Magazine,” the Newport Gangster Walking Tour was listed as one of the top 10 reasons to visit Kentucky this year. “We are really flattered, the response for our tours has been overwhelming,” said Jerry Gels, one of the tour’s organizers. “But to be recognized by a national magazine is something that surpassed our expectations.” The tour, an eight-block walk highlighting Newport’s illegal casino era, began as a fundraiser for local students to go on service trips to places like Jamaica and Costa Rica, but its popularity has led ito it becoming a successful business. In honor of the recognition in “Southern Living,” tour organizers are holding a Southern Living Party and Preview Tour Thursday, March 11. The preview tour will be followed by a cake auction at the Gangsters Dueling Piano Bar, 18 East Fifth St., raise In the March to money for issue of the service “Southern trips. “We need Living to raise about Magazine,” the $9,000 still Newport to do the things we Gangster want to do, Walking Tour so we need really pick was listed as to up efforts,” one of the top Gels said.

Youth foundation launching outreach By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
The Northern Kentucky Youth Foundation, a new civic-minded group with the goal of giving teens a safe, fun and stable after-school and summer environment, is starting its mission. Foundation board member and Fort Thomas resident Ryan Courtade is helping lead the effort. Courtade, unveiled the group’s logo and mission Feb. 25 at Taylor Mill United Methodist Church, where he is the youth minister. Courtade received help kicking off the foundation’s outreach from fellow board member Kieth Daniel of Alexandria, Kenton County Attorney Garry Edmondson, and representatives from the foundation’s publicity team from Eisen Market Group. Courtade said the foun-
dation’s effort has been a dream he’s had since high school where he realized after-school activities for youth are very limited. “It’s important with the economy and with parents working second jobs to have a place where kids can go to that’s fun and safe,” he said. The foundation will start with a summer program in the City Heights neighborhood in Covington, Courtade said. The group will then work on finding partnerships with community centers or churches to create after-school programs focusing on all the counties in Northern Kentucky. The hope is to have an afterschool program offering tutoring and peer mentoring services active in the fall not just at City Heights, but in other communities, he said. The youth in the summer program will attend three-

Helping the foundation
The Northern Kentucky Youth Foundation is starting a campaign to seek support from communities and businesses, and also seeking volunteers interested in joining the group. The group especially needs people with experience working directly with youth. For information about how to donate or join the group visit the Web site www.nkyyouth.org. day mini camps where they will play games and spend the day doing constructive activities including a field trip, Courtade said. While the foundation is faith-based, the goal is about teaching youth to love another as they love themselves, Courtade said. “But it’s not a Bible school by any means, anyone is welcome,” he said. Edmondson said his office continues to see increases each year of juvenile offenses. And alcohol and drugs are also involved in more and more incidents of both juvenile and adult offenses, he said. “Giving children something else to do and some values in a safe environment is something that’s sorely needed,” Edmondson said. Board member Kieth Daniel is also pastor of Eggleston United Methodist Church. The foundation’s focus on the future of youth isn’t a church issue, but is something the entire community can get behind, Daniel said. “It’s a solution rather than pointing out a problem,” he said.

Learn to spot horse neglect, abuse signs By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
In the Bluegrass state where people love horses, lots of people want to have their own. But, organizers of a free Sunday, March 21 Equine Abuse Education course say not everyone is prepared, able or sometimes even willing to do what it takes to properly care for a horse. The course is for anyone across the Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati area concerned about the treatment of horses, said Anna Zinkhon, board member of

the Northern Kentucky Horse Network, who owns and operates Misty Ridge Farm in Camp Springs. “We are going to be teaching people how to recognize horse abuse,” Zinkhon said. But, just as important will be instructing people about what is and isn’t abuse, she said. “A horse is perfectly content to be in cold weather, that’s not the problem,” Zinkhon said. “It’s whether they’re being fed enough and treated for an injury.” Zinkhon said it was decided to have the abuse education course in light of the recent issues surrounding the treatment of horses in Clermont County. Animal control officers in Clermont County found dead and malnourished horses on a farm in Bethel in December. Twelve charges of either cruelty to animals or abandoning animals have been filed against Chad Moore, a horse trainer, of Bethel. Moore’s trial was scheduled to begin March 2 in Clermont County Municipal Court. “There was an issue for many months of trying to get someone to react to that situation,” Zinkhon said. But there have also been smaller-scale cases in Northern Kentucky too, she said. NKHN works directly with animal shelters, animal control officers and horse owners to resolve reported

Alivia Murphy, 3, of Bellevue, reads aloud to Nelson the bloodhound at the Campbell County Public Library’s Newport Branch Monday, March 1. The library has regular “Puppy Tales” programs aimed at young children so they can gain confidence reading aloud to dogs trained to sit there and listen to them, said Kiki Dreyer Burke, public relations manager for the library. And there’s no pressure for the child reader to get the approval of the person they’re reading to when reading to the dogs, Burke said.
A free Equine Abuse Education course for the public will be in the cafeteria at Campbell County High School, 909 Camel Crossing, Alexandria, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 21. The event is sponsored by the Northern Kentucky Horse Network, the Kentucky Horse Council and the University of Kentucky Extension Service. Elsie Rogers, who trains animal control officers how to spot abuse and neglect for the Kentucky Horse Council, will be the featured speaker. For information visit the horse network’s Web site www.nkhn.org. cases of abuse or neglect. “There’s a lot of horses suffering for a lot of reasons,” she said. Horses can be expensive to care for, and some people who bought horses before the economy started getting bad are finding it more difficult to care for them, Zinkhon said. “Nobody’s got money to buy them, and nobody’s got money to feed them,” she said. Getting the word out to the public about how to care for a horse properly is essential, especially for first time horse owners, said Kenton County Animal Shelter Director Dan Evans. “A lot of people will get a horse and not really know enough of what they need,” Evans said. “Then it ends up in neglect.” Kentucky, being the horse capital of the world, means lots of people want to buy their own horse, Evans said. But, many forget not only how costly horses are, but that they need things like having a farrier come out regularly to care for the horse’s hooves, he said. “It’s a little bit different than just a cat or a dog,” Evans said.

For 18 years, Tracy Bartlett Siemer has been fighting. After each battle, she thinks maybe the cancer won't return. But time and again it has. Now she's fighting it once more. In 1991, Tracy was seven months pregnant when it was discovered she had a brain tumor. Her son, Austin, was born healthy one month later, and five days after that, Tracy had brain surgery No. 1. It was a rare type of cancer, mesenchymal chondrosarcoma, and Tracy was one of just 15 documented cases. Six weeks later, she had another brain
surgery, and doctors said it would be 10 years before she could say she was in remission. Nine years later, the cancer returned, and Tracy had her third surgery. In 2007, it came back again and she had her fourth - and most difficult - surgery. Because of the location, doctors couldn't remove the entire tumor, so she had chemotherapy for a year. But in 2009, the cancer came back yet again. The 43-year-old from Wilder continues to fight. In fact, she and her family have developed their own attitude they call it "Don't Stop Believin.'" Family and friends are organizing a benefit for the single mother of two, who needs help paying her medical bills because she is unable to work.
The Don't Stop Believin' Tracy Siemer Benefit will be from 6:30 to 11:30 p.m. March 13 at St. Therese Hall in Southgate. Cost is $20 per person, and major raffle tickets (prize is a five-night stay and round-trip airfare for two to Las Vegas) are $1. An online auction will be held, and items can be viewed at http://benbleser.com/TracySiemerBenefit/. The online auction will close at 9 a.m. March 11. Donations can also be made to the Tracy Siemer Benefit Fund at any Fifth Third Bank. For more information on the benefit, call 859-743-3939. Ryan Clark is a contributor for The Kentucky Enquirer.

Local Special Olympians have stories to tell By Adam Kiefaber firstname.lastname@example.org
Throughout the 2010 Winter Olympics, there have been stories of perseverance and hardship. However, it is hard to imagine that any of those stories can hold a torch to the stories that reside in our local Special Olympians, who will compete in the 2010 USA National Games in Lincoln, Neb., July 18-23. Leading the group of local Olympians is Taylor Mill runner Matthew Minning, who already is a welldecorated track-and-field athlete earning a gold and two bronze medals in the 2006 USA National Games in Ames, Iowa, and two silver medals at the 2007 World summer Games in Shanghai, China. Minning, who boosts the nickname of the “Energizer Bunny,” hasn’t always been the great runner he is today. He had to work at it. When he first started running cross country at Scott High School it was very difficult for him to finish a 5K race. Eventually, finishing the race became more difficult for his teammates. “The boys would always tell me that he needs to run in longer races because he wouldn’t be tired and they
Danielle Blakeney practices her routine at MJM Studios in Florence Feb. 24. Blakeney, who is an A/B honor roll student at Boone County High School, will compete in the Special Olympics 2010 USA National Games July 18-23 in Lincoln, Neb. Blakeney will be competing in her first national games.
Christy Farwell of Alexandria is a multiple-sport athlete that excels in track and field, basketball and golf. This summer, as a golfer, she will be the first-ever female to represent Kentucky in individual stroke play during the Special Olympics National Games. This year's Olympics will take place in Lincoln, Neb., July 18-23.
Paul Fiehrer of Covington takes some laps in the pool at Silverlake Recreation Center in Erlanger, Feb. 23. Fiehrer will be competing in the 50 and 100 freestyle races, as well as the 4x50 medley relay in the 2010 USA National Games this summer in Lincoln, Neb. This will his first Special Olympics at the national level. would be,” Matthew’s mom, Marjorie said. “Sometimes it would just aggravate them (Scott team) because he would come in just fine, and they would be exhausted.” Minning has gone on to learn other sports and currently enjoys water skiing, snow skiing, wake boarding, roller skating, bowling, fishing, baseball and basketball. He will compete in the 3K, 5K and 10K races at this year’s games. Joining him in Nebraska will be swimmer Paul Fiehrer of Covington, gymnast Danielle Blakeney of Erlanger and golfer Christy Farwell of Alexandria. Each of the athletes has their own story of perseverance. Six years ago, Fiehrer was 15 when his cousin Jarrod Chaney died in a car accident coming home from work. Fiehrer was devastated as the elder Chaney had embraced him and was teaching him how to be a teenager at Dixie Heights High School. “One time, I asked Paul, why do you try so hard,” Paul’s mom, Paulette Fiehrer said. “Are you swimming for your cousin, Jarrod?” “Yes,” Paul told his mom. Fiehrer, who has been swimming almost his entire life, swam hard and went on to win the 50 and 100 freestyle races at the state meet last June at Eastern Kentucky University. This summer, he will participate in his first National Games in the 50 and 100 freestyle races as well as the 4x50 medley relay. He hopes to add a couple of medals to go along with his “Yes I Can” award and his artistic honors given to him for his watercolor paintings. Currently Minning and Fiehrer play in a basketball league with the Christy Farwell, who will be the firstever female golfer (not part of a team) to represent the state of Kentucky in the national games. Farwell, who also won a bronze medal for track and field during the 2006 games, prides herself on beating the boys. “I like the challenge
Taylor Mill Special Olympian Matthew Minning seen here participating in the 2007 World Summer Games in Shanghai, China, won a pair of silver medals at the event. Minning hopes to add to his medal total at the Special Olympics 2010 USA National Games July 18-23 in Lincoln, Neb. In 2006, Minning won a gold and two bronze medals at the national games.
because they kind of get mad and it is fun to watch them get mad,” she said. In her basketball league, she is only one of three girls on her team. Her biggest boy-beating accomplishment has to be in golf,
where she has defeated her competition despite picking up the game only two years ago. “She has beat some of the boys that have been playing for 15 years, it is rare but she can,” Christy’s mom, Carol said. “Playing with the boys, that is a feather in anyone’s hat.” Rounding out the group is the incredible story of gymnast Danielle Blakeney. When Blakeney was born she weighed two pounds, four ounces. The doctors told her mother, Coleen, she was going to be blind and unable to walk. Now, she is an 18-yearold senior at Boone County High School that will compete in her first Olympic games. As well as excelling in gymnastics, Blakeney is an honor roll student, a cheerleader and has partici-
pated in track and field. “If you ask her why she competes or why it is important to be a gymnast or a cheerleader, she will tell you that when she is in a uniform no one know treats her like she is different,” Coleen Blakeney said.

The Highlands High School Speech and Drama Team, made up of 24 students in grades 9-12, are heading to the state tournament March 12-13.
Speech and Drama Team heads to state, holds public performances
By Amanda Joering Alley firstname.lastname@example.org
The public will soon have the chance to see the Highlands High School Speech and Drama Team at work. In preparation for the team’s upcoming trip to Western Kentucky University to compete in the state tournament, the students will be performing their pieces in front of live audiences throughout the area. “When we perform our pieces in front of people we may not know, which is sometimes easier than in front of people we do know, we are able to feed off their energy and can carry that energy on to future performances,” said Lindsey Scaggs, a junior member of the team. “Practice makes perfect, and we intend to do a lot of it.” For sophomore Taylor Jones, who does the events declamation and improvisational duo, the live performances will help her by giving her a chance to get feedback on how to improve her pieces, she said.

Highlands Dance Team balance dancing, school
By Amanda Joering Alley email@example.com
During a recent competition at Northern Kentucky University, the Highlands High School Dance Team showed that they have skills on the dance floor and in the classroom. Beyond being named grand champions of the dance division, many members of the team were also honored for their academic accomplishments. “Every year at the competition they honor the girls that have a 3.5 GPA or higher,” said team coach Erin Minsterman. “All but four of our 23 team members received that honor.” Highlands team member Samantha Reynolds said com-
pared with other schools, whose team members received only few academic honors, it is exciting to see her team do so well. “As much as I enjoy dance, my grades are very important to me too,” Reynolds said. “A lot of our members also teach dance classes at studios, so time management is really important.” The team, which is made up of girls in grades eight through 12, practice two to three days a week for two to three hours per day, dance at the school’s sporting events and compete against other teams, Minsterman said. “We see each other a lot,” Minsterman said. “As hard as the girls work at school and practice, it’s very exciting for them to do so well.”
Campbell Middle’s academic Cultural festival an teams make state tourney economics lesson
By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
Campbell County Middle School’s academic team coach Faye Smith and her students are out to show the rest of the state last year’s fourth-place showing was no fluke. While the middle school is seeking repeat last year’s showing at the March 13-15 State Governor’s Cup Tournament, Campbell County High School’s team is preparing to defend and improve upon their heritage of excellence. Each tournament level features 32 of the best teams in the state. The high school placed seventh overall in last year’s competition and is matched against Shelby County in the first round. Donn Manker, coach of the high school team, said the school’s quick recall team has made it to the state competition in eight of the 13 years he’s been head coach. “Tradition is the key word, whether discussing Highlands football, UK basketball or CCHS academic teams,” Manker said. “We have had a strong team since KAAC (Kentucky Association for Academic Competition) started,
back in 1986.” Back at the middle school, Smith said she knows the team faces a tough first round opponent by drawing perennial contender Lexington Traditional Magnet School. “Our kids know that they have to work really, really, really hard to get through that first day of pool play,” she said. “This year we’re there to show them that this not a fluke.” Last year was the first year they did so well, Smith said. Academic team students practice together constantly just like basketball players have regular practices, only it’s not a physical effort, she said. “The academic team has almost become their sport,” Smith said. Smith said the team practices from September through March together a minimum of five hours a week in addition to their individual study efforts. There’s even a summer day camp to introduce new teammates and get them used to hitting their own quick recall button in response to questions, she said. The academic matches cover all the content students learn in school, but also goes well beyond
what’s taught in the classroom, she said. Middle school member Jennifer Rawe, a seventh-grader from Alexandria, who placed first in the individual test for social studies in the regional competition, said she enjoys what she learns and being with her teammates. Each day Rawe said she repeats different lists and tables to memorize them, especially from the Web site www.studystack.com. “I love the practices, we always have a lot of fun and learn a lot,” Rawe said. Brooklee Boots, daughter of CCHS Principal Renee Boots, an eighth-grader on the middle school team, said she and her twin sister Sidney study together and quiz each other. They have a friendly rivalry, but their own study methods, Brooklee said. Brooklee said she enjoys the camaraderie of being on the team, and credits Smith for encouraging and being there for the students and not just the team. “I like that all my friends are on the team,” she said. “Probably they’re my closest friends in the school because they’re who we live with. It’s like a family a home away from home.”

Grant’s Lick Elementary students are adding up a monetary motivation lesson to help them experience the richness of cultural offerings at the school’s annual Multi-Cultural Fair March 8-9. For this year’s fair the school was offered a partnership by the University of Cincinnati, which has brought an economic program into the school’s annual event. Children Inc. is also partnering with the school. Grant’s Lick is the first school in Kentucky UC’s Department of Economics is bringing its grade school program too, said Principal Amy Razor. “They picked us because of our service learning background,” Razor said. Students are given a debit card and a chance to earn monetary credits they can use to buy things at the Multi-Cultural Fair, said Peggy Herald, a fifth-grade teacher at the school who organizes the annual event. To earn the credits, classes have to achieve goals like working, caring and giving 110 percent, Herald said. There’s a different goal for
each classroom each day and all grades are involved, she said. “If they achieve that goal throughout the course of the day they get paid,” Herald said. Students will learn about economics by having to track how much and money they have left on their debit cards, she said. There is also a service learning aspect to the multi-cultural fair because UC and the partners are planning to donate money raised from the cultural fair to Matthew: 25 Ministries, Herald said. An integral part of the project is that students have to make and market the products each gradelevel will sell at booths at the culture fair, she said. “They have to figure out how many products we’re going to make,” Herald said. “We have to account for how much it costs to make the product to make.” Fifth-grade classes are planning to put up a cultural display about Haiti, but also sell mosaic prints, clay for building clay homes and “Haitian Smoothies” made of fruit, she said. Other grades will have cultural products and information about countries including Japan, Australia, England and India.

Thoroughbreds beat Wildcats for title
By James Weber email@example.com
They had the toughest possible draw in the 36th District Tournament. Now, even though the big February snow is virtually all gone, the Newport Central Catholic boys’ basketball team is prepared for some tough sledding in the Ninth Region Tournament. NewCath (19-7) will play Boone County (18-8) in a quarterfinal matchup at Northern Kentucky University. The Thoroughbreds are in the regional after a resounding 63-38 win over rival Newport in the district final Feb. 27. NCC won for the second time in three games against the Wildcats. NCC limited Newport to 30 points below its season average, its lowest game of the year. “We played well,” NCC head coach Grant Brannen said. “We showed a lot of character. Everybody has been stepping up.” Jake Giesler scored 14 points and 15 rebounds and was the tourney Most Valuable Player. Derek Schmidt had 12 points, Shaun Meyer 11 and Grant Pangallo 8.

Meyer and Pangallo were also alltournament picks. The defense was the key, as NCC, after leading by nine points at halftime, held the Wildcats scoreless for the first six minutes of the third period. NewCath beat Boone County 53-52 Dec. 8. With a win, the Thoroughbreds get Dixie Heights or defending state champion Holmes. NewCath beat Dixie in overtime and lost to Holmes by three. “We had a tough draw in the district,” Brannen said. “Dayton has their best team in 25 years, and Highlands was really good. But we pulled through it. There’s a reason Boone was one of the top teams in the state this year.” Casey McDaniel led Newport with 15 points and was an all-tournament pick, as was Brandon Sizemore. DaMarkco Foster had nine points and Anthony Luther eight. Newport was set to play Ryle in a regional quarterfinal Wednesday, March 3.

Brossart (196) was set to play Mason County in a 10th Region quarterfinal at 8 p.m. Friday, March 5,at the Mason County Fieldhouse. “We played fairly well, so hopefully we can play well again (this week) and take our chances,” Brossart head coach Mike Code said.
Scott junior Ryan Stivers hit a three-pointer with 15 seconds to play for the winning points. Stivers had scored 39 points all year heading into the district tourney, but had nine points in the fourth quarter against Brossart. “We got what we wanted,” Code said. “They had to have somebody step up who really hadn’t done it, and to their credit and to his credit, he did.” The dramatic ending punctuated a game filled with runs. Scott led 19-8 after one quarter, but Brossart rolled to a 21-2 run in the second period to lead by seven. The Eagles then scored the last five points in the second period and continued that run to a 12-3 count to lead by two. Jacob Rieger and Travis Norton were all-tournament picks for the Mustangs.

Robbie Scharold loves to run and train. The Campbell County senior will take that training to another level when he goes to attend the University of Kentucky this fall. Scharold signed to run cross country and track for UK Feb. 25. “I always wanted to run for a Division I school, a big school like UK,” he said. “It’s close to home. I’ve liked UK my whole life.” Scharold won the 800 meters at last year’s state track meet to win the 3A state title. He ran a Northern Kentucky record 1:54.54 and hopes to break 1:50 this year. Scharold was regional champion in cross country last fall and sixth in the state.
“(UK) is nationally ranked,” he said. “They’re a program on the rise. They’re signing a lot of good guys.” Scharold enjoys the training and expects to do a lot more when he gets to UK. “I love running on the quiet back roads,” he said. “You get to be by yourself and think.” Camel head cross country coach Mike Bankemper said that love of running has brought Scharold where he is. “I’m looking forward to seeing how much better he can get,” Bankemper said. “His biggest asset is his work ethic. He loves it.”

Let history be our lesson, prepare and plan for earthquakes History has recorded several major tremors in this part of the country over the past two centuries. With the earthquake and tidal wave which followed in Asia maybe we should consider the earthquake risk here in Kentucky and plan for its threat to us. History speaks of an earthquake Oct. 31, 1895, that happened near Charleston, Mo. and was felt across the eastern half of the U.S. Later research indicates it probably would have measured about 6.2 magnitude if there had been seismic instruments to gauge it. The Charleston earthquake took place in the New Madrid Seismic Zone, considered to be the most serious earthquake-producing zone east of the Rocky Mountains. According to the Geological Survey, enough seismic strain has built up in the New Madrid Seismic Zone to produce an earthquake as strong as 7.8 on the Richter scale. While a tremor of that size is possible, it is not considered as likely as one registering 6 to 6.5. Scientists believe there is about a 50 percent probability of a 6.5-magnitude earthquake during the next decade in the Central U.S. Over the next 50 years, that probability rises to well over 90 percent. An earthquake of that size has the potential to cause damage over a wide area and disrupt transportation, communications, electricity and natural gas service. People affected by the tremor may find themselves without emergency services such as medical help for hours or days. And because aftershocks are very common, further damage after the initial tremor is also a possibility. When was the last damaging
earthquake in the Midwest? While many may think the legendary quakes of 181112 were the last ones to happen in this region, a strong tremor William Ray from the New Turner Madrid Seismic Zone near Community Charleston, MisRecorder souri, occurred a guest century ago--on columnist October 31, 1895. There were no seismic instruments to measure the earthquake, but research at St. Louis University derived an estimate of 6.2 magnitude. A study of the event by Dr. Ron Street and others at the University of Kentucky was published in 1986. It quoted the Hickman (Ky.) Courier as reporting people “rushed into the streets panic stricken...” and “chimney tops of many residences in the city were knocked off” during the 5:15 a.m. event. The Paducah Daily News reported “plaster walls cracked.... a number of chimneys and flues had gone by the board.” The Lexington (Ky.) Daily Leader described people in Frankfort, Ky., as being “...badly scared..,” adding that “...small cracks were discovered in the walls...” and that plaster fell from walls and ceilings in some houses. The research found reports that the earthquake was felt in Washington, D.C., Green Bay, Wisconsin and in Iowa. The area which sustained damage, primarily in the lower Ohio and Wabash River valleys, was probably about 14,000 square kilometers. When will a damaging earth-

Earthquakes cannot be predicted, but geologic scientists believe the chance of a tremor the size of the Charleston quake is about 50/50 during the next decade and up to 97 percent during the next 50 years, as seismic strain builds in the region. Much more “infrastructure” of buildings, bridges, roadways, utilities and services has been built in the region since the Charleston earthquake, creating the potential for much more damage to humanmade structures as well as injuries and deaths. Ground shaking can cause many of these effects, but earthquakes can also cause soil liquefaction and flooding. Earthquakes elsewhere in recent years have resulted in fires and hazardous materials spills, compounding the job of emergency response agencies. As earthquakes occur elsewhere such as the one Christmas day 2004 on the coast of Northern Sumatra, the Haiti Quake on Jan. 12, 2010, and in years past in California, Japan, Ecuador and Mexico, the belief that “It can’t happen here” may begin to set in.
Thus the question “When has it happened here, anyway.” The answer is, “Plenty of times.” And not necessarily so long ago or far away. While damaging earthquakes are not as common in our region as other emergencies such as floods and tornadoes, the potential for widespread damage from an earthquake should motivate people to prepare. Steps should be taken in homes, at school and in the workplace to prepare for the effects of a damaging earthquake. No one can prevent earthquakes, but everyone can take steps to prevent some of the damages and injuries which may happen. Take these steps at home, in schools and in workplaces. Know what to do when an earthquake happens. There will be no warning. Don’t try to run away; get under a heavy desk or table and hold onto the legs to keep the table or desk from moving away from you until the shaking stops. If there is nothing to get under, sit against an interior wall and cover your head and neck with your hands. If you’re outside, move away from utility lines or other structures which might fall, crouch down and wait out the
shaking. If you are in a car, pull to the side and stop until the shaking is over. Watch for breaks in the pavement or utility poles and other things which may have fallen on the road when you drive on. Always check for potential electrical problems after a ‘quake and shut off the electricity if you think there could be a “short” or fire hazard. Natural gas should be cut off only if you smell gas inside a building, and you should leave the building immediately. Be prepared for aftershocks as well; earthquakes rarely happen without later tremors, some of them possibly as strong as or even stronger than the first one. Prepare a survival kit for any emergency. It should include water, non-perishable food, a flashlight, first aid kit, extra medications such as prescriptions, blankets and other needs. The kit should be stored in a safe place where it can quickly be reached. Prepare a home, school and workplace plan for evacuating a damaged house or building after the earthquake. The plan should also include how family members will get back in touch with each other or with other relatives or how schools and businesses will check for damages and injuries in their buildings. Schools are required by state law to conduct two earthquake drills each year and write earthquake plans. Services we take for granted, such as emergency medicine, electricity, water and telephones, could be interrupted for hours, days or weeks. That’s why planning to be “on your own” for several days is essential. William Ray Turner is the director of the Campbell County Office of Emergency Management.
CH@TROOM Last week’s question
Are you pleased with the way your public works crews have responded to the February snows? What could they have done better? “I am very pleased with the response of crews that have kept us moving during these challenging winter days. Now fix the potholes quickly!” G.G. “Both state and county road crews did an excellent job in removing the recent snows in a timely fashion. It is great to see competence in government.” Rabbit Hash “Yes, I am very pleased. They did a great job!” Kimberley A. Powell “Yes, I think they did very good. I only counted 12 mailboxes knocked down! Thank you, road crew!” Duke “Walton crews have done an amazing job keeping our subdivision roads and main roads clear and safe! I moved here from Georgia and was scared to drive on ice and snow but they have made it much easier to survive here during the winter!” J.K.T. ���They've done a wonderful job. I travel through Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties each day and have been quite impressed this year.” J.H.
Next question: Would you consider or are you considering a Toyota for your next car, given the company’s recent recalls and safety concerns? Why or why not? Send your response to email@example.com with “chatroom” in the subject line. “A+ for the public works crew. I live on a dead end street with not much traffic except for the local residents. The snow plows did not ignore us. They plowed the street at least twice a day to keep the roads very clear.” K.K.C. “Let all of us remember that the publics works is trying to clear the roads for everyone with limited equipment. Everyone wants the same thing at the same time – clean roads, which allows for plowing just enough that they can move on to others who are waiting. And let us not forget that this work is being done while most of us sleep and on longer shifts than most of us work.” T.S. “As far as I am concerned, the public works crews deserve a medal for the good job they did on our community’s streets. One could not have asked for more. Maybe when I was younger, I could have worked that hard, but I just marvel every time I think of the hours they had to keep, and the effort they had to exert, and I am grateful.” B.B.

Going inside the Sweet Tooth Candies factory
CATCH A STAR
By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
Boy Scout to fix up Soldier’s Lot For years, Southgate resident Christopher Froendhoff has wanted to find a special way to honor veterans. With an uncle and grandfather who served in the armed forces, Froendhoff said he knows how much veterans have done for the United States. “I want to honor my grandpa Jack and uncle Michael and all other veterans,” Froendhoff said. As a member of Boy Scout Troop 751, 15-year-old Froendhoff is working to fix up the Soldier’s Lot at Evergreen Cemetery as his Eagle Scout project.
The project, which is estimated to cost about $1,700, includes restoring the wall in the lot, placing a granite slab on the flagpole in the lot indicating where veterans are buried and creating a pathway to the lot. “The reason I am doing this project is because this place has a great historical value,” Froendhoff said. Through donations, Froendhoff said he’s raised about $1,480 so far and hopes to start the project in mid-spring. For more information about the project or to donate e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

Sweet Tooth’s biggest seller is opera cream eggshaped candy, especially around Easter, he said. “For the season we’ll make 40,000 eggs,” Bob said. He tastes each batch to make sure it meets his standards. If it’s not right, it gets thrown out, he said. “I have recipes, but they are all subject to revision as we go along,” Schneider said. It’s got to taste right, he said. Schneider changes the recipes to match the weather, varying the amount of cream and how long it’s cooked at times so it won’t melt as fast in the summer, he said.

chocolates to create one type of candy. Schneider said he uses Cambra for bite and to balance the other types of chocolates. In addition to chocolates, he also makes more than 17 varieties of homemade ice cream. Trauth Dairy makes a special blend just for Sweet Tooth with 15 percent butter fat and then he adds an egg yolk mix. “It makes it all more expensive to make, but it makes it really good,” he said. Schneider said his favorite thing about making candy is seeing people’s reactions. “When people walk in the store and tell me it’s the best they ever had and I say thank you and that’s all,” he said. Schneider said he never claims his chocolate is better than anyone else’s’, but that it is a unique taste – and good. Jim Piccirillo of Newport, Sweet Tooth’s other candy

Popping at least six pieces of his dark chocolate creations into his mouth daily, candy maker Bob Schneider doesn’t deny he has a “sweet tooth.” “I guess today I’ve already had eight pieces of candy, and I used to eat more,” Schneider said during around noon on a weekday. But working non-stop on his feet cranking out treats daily in his Sweet Tooth Candies factory in Newport, Schneider said he works the calories off. “The thing about chocolate is you don’t get tired of it,” Schneider said. Schneider has been selling candies out of his store on 125 West 11th St. for 41 years. Sweet Tooth is a company with about 10 employees, most of them full-time, who have worked for Schneider for 20 or more years. “We make at least 40 different kinds of chocolates,” he said. It may sound like a dream job, but it’s labor intensive, including carrying boiling, 80-pound vats of chocolate around. It’s still mostly a hand-made operation, Schneider said. “People say, ‘Oh, that must be so much fun,’” he said. “It’s stir, it’s push and pull and then you’ve got a big mess to clean up.” Making chocolates and candies, fudge, candy jellies, ice cream and ice balls is the lifelong trade of Schneider, 67, a resident of Fort Thomas. He started working as a child in his father’s store, which is still run by his younger brother Jack, as Schneider’s in Bellevue. He and his brother each have their own unique candymaking style, and it tastes different, Bob said.

Can there be a thrill in monotony?
Two ways can lead us to more deeply drink of life. One way is that of awareness. We overlook too much meaning, perceive only the veneer, and don’t take enough time to pan for the gold of understanding. As a remedy for superficiality a psychologist might begin by mentioning Plato’s belief that “an unexamined life is not worth living.” To encourage the same awareness a spiritual counselor might facetiously suggest an unaware adult replace the line from a child’s bedtime prayer, “if I should die before I wake…” with, “if I should wake before I die.” Many times I have written of deepening our awareness in life. Today I suggest a secondary mode. It is a paradoxical suggestion – gain the appreciation of life by insights into monotony. Modern minds hate monotony. The repetitious
has little attraction. “ B e e n t h e r e , seen it, d o n e that,” we say as if to a v o i d Father Lou repeating Guntzelman what we think we Perspectives a l r e a d y know. Culturally, the modern mind hates the monotony of the same spouse, the same car, the same fashion, the same morals, and a commitment to anything permanent. We think that makes us more free. So we frenetically search for new thrills, new chemical or experiential highs, new religions, extreme sports, etc. – anything to avoid being swallowed by monotony. Adherents of this search for the new might argue thus: everything that is full of life loves change because
Plates, bill of sale needed to protect car sellers With car dealers offering deals on new cars these days, more and more people are considering selling their old cars. But, if you’re planning on selling your car on your own, a word of warning so you don’t get stung like a local man. Jason Korte is a 22-yearold college student from North College Hill who wanted to sell his truck. He advertised on the Internet, found a buyer and got paid in cash. He said he thought he did everything right, but ended up losing his driving privileges and more. “The buyer and I went to the title office and we basically signed the title, transferred it. But, looking back now he didn’t have the proof of insurance with him nor did he have his driver’s license – and they still let us do the title transfer,” said Korte. Korte had signed the back of his title and the buyer signed acknowledging the odometer statement. “I did not have the tools to take the license plates off the car, so when the buyer went next door to take care of the registration he said he’d take care of it. I guess he went in there and did nothing. He left my license plates on the car,” Korte said. Korte didn’t learn what had happened until three months later when that buyer ran into a parked car. Korte got stuck with a bill from that car owner’s insurance company. “They’re saying I owe them damages of around $7,800. I called them and said I didn’t have a wreck and didn’t know what they were talking about,” he said. “They said it was about a red truck that I let my friend drive, and that I didn’t have insurance. I said I had sold that truck to him,” Korte said. It turns out that sale was never recorded by the Ohio
Bureau of M o t o r Vehicles – a n d remember Korte had left his license plates on Howard Ain the car. Failing Hey Howard! to take your license plates from a car you sell is actually against the law. Korte’s driver’s license has now been suspended because he didn’t have insurance on the truck he still legally owned. The BMV said Korte must settle with the insurance company before he’ll be allowed to drive again. “I don’t even know what to do. It’s driving me nuts. They’re saying I owe them more than $7,000 before I can even start driving,” Korte said. Technically, the insurance company can also go after the driver who ran into the parked car. But, that person was sentenced to a year in jail after being convicted of drunk driving and driving on a suspended license. Korte is now trying to provide proof he had actually sold the vehicle and received payment. The Bureau of Motor Vehicles offers several tips for selling your car. • Always stay with the buyer until you see the vehicle transferred into the buyer’s name. • Always take your license plates with you, which guarantees that the buyer must get his own plates. • Finally, always make up a bill of sale and get it signed and dated by both parties – keeping a copy of the original for yourself.

life is ever changing. Life is always looking ahead and forward, not here or within. Repetition of what is experienced now only breeds boredom and monotony. But couldn’t the contrary be true? Instead of saying that those who are full of life hate monotony, couldn’t we say that those who are actually full of life also find a positive thrill in monotony? A child is certainly full of life. Yet, if we play a fun game with a child or do an amusing trick, they’ll say, “Do it again.” If we tell them a story, they won’t say Aunt Edna already told me that. They’ll most likely say, “Tell me again.” Patiently build a house of cards, and after it
falls they’ll say “Do it again.” The child is an innocent spark of a God who delights in the new as well as in repetition. I remember the impact on me when, as seminarian, I heard an old song in a new way. One morning, at an early springtime Mass, as the sunlight peeked through chapel window into our sleepy eyes, the musicians began our opening song. It was a song made popular years before by Cat Stevens: “Morning has broken like the first morning; blackbird has spoken like the first bird…” I still remember its impact. The lyrics brought home to me the wonderful repetition of God’s creative act that is repeated each
day. Suddenly, I looked on the monotony (?) of each morning as part of God’s romance of us – using the monotony of daily beauty as a reminder of the primordial beauty with which he first endowed the world. Because God is full of life, he can also enjoy the thrill that comes from sameness as well as newness. “I can imagine Almighty God, with something of the joy and exuberance that belongs to a child, saying each morning to the sun, ‘Do it again,’ and every evening saying to the moon and stars, ‘Do it again,’ and every springtime saying to the daisies, ‘Do it again,’” wrote Bishop Fulton Sheen. God has the eternal appetite of the vibrancy
manifested in infancy. We have sinned and grown old, but our Father is younger than we. The repetition of nature may not be mere monotonous reoccurrence but a divine encore for our enjoyment. And some day, after we have struggled with our lifedramas and repetitive problems – and become victorious through God’s grace – we, too, may be called again and again as a curtain-call before the universe.

Spice up your Lenten fish dish with salsa
At the beginning of Lent, I bring out my Mom’s ancient h a n d h e w n wooden bowl from Lebanon and sit it on the c o u n t e r. Rita Whenever I peel a Heikenfeld y e l l o w Rita’s kitchen onion, the papery skins go into the bowl. Yesterday, our youngest grandchild, little Eva who will be 2 years old this week, helped pull the skins from the onions for the first time. She will join her cousins the day before Easter helping me color the eggs with natural colorings, like the onion skins, turmeric, beet juice, red cabbage, etc. I’ll share the recipe as we get closer to Easter. Lent is a great time to eat less meat, so the recipe I’m sharing today for tilapia is a good one to get you started.
Tilapia with tomatoes and capers salsa
4 pieces tilapia or salmon
Brush with a bit of olive oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Run under broiler about four to six minutes, turning the fish over if thick. Or sauté. Just don’t overcook it. Check out my blog on www.cincinnati.com/lol for vegetarian recipes for Lent.
2 cups chopped tomato 1 ⁄2 cup chopped parsley 1-2 tablespoons capers, drained (I like 2) 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar or rice wine vinegar 1 teaspoon anchovy paste (optional but very good) 1 scant tablespoon minced garlic
Several tablespoons of olive oil – go to taste Salt and pepper to taste
John T’s mock turtle soup
For Lucine Erb, a Hilltop Press reader.
11⁄2 pounds ground beef 3 quarts HOT water 20 to 30 gingersnaps 1 large onion 1 medium carrot 1 lemon 2 ounces Worcestershire sauce 1 small bottle ketchup (14-ounce) 1 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄2 teaspoon pepper 4 hardboiled eggs ( f i n e l y chopped) 2 tablespoons sherry wine (or vinegar) Small bag of pickling spice Place the meat and gingersnaps in the hot water and allow to stand for 10 to
15 minutes. Grind or grate the onion and the carrot and add to mixture. Slice the lemon paper thin and add to mixture. Add ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Suspend bag of pickling spice into mixture. Cook over a low heat for 2 to 3 hours. Stir frequently. Add finely chopped eggs about half-hour before finish. Add wine (or vinegar). Cool quickly by placing in sink of cold water. When cool, place in refrigerator until ready for use. Mixture will keep for a week or more if refrigerated. Can also be frozen for later use. Enjoy!
dressing is sold by the jar at each location. Pudding w/out milk or eggs: For Pat Kremer, a Recorder reader, who wants to make it for someone on a restricted diet due to illness. San Antonio Parish pizza: Mike, a Glendale reader, remembers the pizza served at this church during summer festivals in the 1960s. “The festivals were held in a lot across from the little Italian church on Queen City Avenue in South Fairmount.” It was prepared in the church basement and was square, heavy on seasonings, simple, yet different from restaurant-style pizza.

Goetta origin update
I can’t wait to share this information with Mark Balasa of Glier’s Meats – they make a great goetta. Charlene Mecklenburg, Manfred Schnetzer and Dr. Don Heinrich Tolzmann, president of the German-American Citizens League and curator of the German Heritage Museum in Cleves, all sent in fascinating information about the origins of goetta. Turns out it comes from northern Germany, and those folks who immigrated to our area carried the goetta-making tradition with them. More on our Web version of this column.
