Fort Thomas business still ‘floating’ after 30 years By Amanda Joering Alley firstname.lastname@example.org
For 30 years one Fort Thomas business has been full of hot air. Balloons Across the River on the corner of North Fort Thomas Avenue is celebrating 30 years in the balloon business Thursday, April 1. The small business that owner Trent Wessling, his wife at the time and his brother started in their garage in 1980 has become main supplier for many organizations in the Tri-state, said manager Vicki Gauspohl. “Trent is very creative and is a hands-on owner,” Gauspohl said. “He does all of our deliveries and really puts business first.” After moving from his garage to one corner of Memorial Parkway and North Fort Thomas
Avenue, Wessling moved his business across the street to its current location at 906 North Fort Thomas Ave., said employee Nancy Parrott. The business supplies decorative balloon displays for corporate events, parties and charity fundraisers like the Relay for Life walks. “There aren’t a lot of balloon businesses around the area,” said employee Pam Hill. “Some of Trent’s decorations are just fabulous.” Joe Rigotti from Accent on Cincinnati, an event planning company, said he has always been happy with the work Balloons Across the River does for him and his clients. “They are really delivering above and beyond what I’d expect from most vendors,” Rigotti said.

Class takes on polling through social media By Amanda Joering Alley email@example.com
Students at Northern Kentucky University are working on a study to test the usefulness of social media Web site Facebook when it comes to a public opinion poll. Students in a Topics in American Politics: Public Opinion class this semester are polling people throughout Campbell, Boone and Kenton counties using two different methods. One method is traditional, mailing polls to randomly selected registered voters, and the other is
online through Facebook. “The goal is to see if Facebook can compete,” said Dr. Shauna Reilly, professor of the class. “I thought this would be a great opportunity to expand the class beyond book learning.” Reilly said this study will give students a chance to compare and contrast the social media method with the standard method and see if Web sites like Facebook can produce similar results. Along with picking the topics for the poll, which include smoking regulations, funding for regional services and the 2010
The study will give students a chance to compare and contrast the social media method with the standard method and see if Web sites like Facebook can produce similar results. Senate race, students also completed a lot of the leg work for the project, including stuffing and mailing 1,500 polls. Student Keshia Theobald said she is amazed at how much work has gone into the project. “We all collaborated together, and we all put in extra time to do this,” Theobald said. While the class is divided on
what the results say, Theobald said she is looking forward to seeing the results of the study. “There hasn’t been a lot of studies on this,” Theobald said. “It will be neat to have some empirical evidence.” The study is being funded by NKU’s Scripps Howards Center for Civic Engagement and is part of the American Democracy Project’s e-Citizenship Initiative, which is meant to expand civic engagement.

Candidates visiting with Tea Party
By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
Political candidates in Campbell County are responding to requests by the Northern Kentucky Tea Party to share their views at the group’s meetings. Campbell County Tea Party members listened as four candidates for elected office made their case during a candidates forum at the group’s Thursday, March 25 regular meeting in Newport. The candidates in attendance included incumbent Campbell County Judgeexecutive Steve Pendery, a Republican of Fort Thomas; Republican Campbell County Attorney candidate Steve Franzen; Newport Democrat Phill Bartel, a candidate for jailer; and Jeff Kidwell of Cold Spring, an incumbent candidate for an unpaid District 1 constable spot. A March 11 Tea Party meeting had featured Kevin Sell, a Republican challenger to Pendery in the May 18 primary. Sell was in the audience
Campbell County Jailer candidate Newport Democrat Phill Bartel said at the March 25 Campbell County Tea Party meeting he didn’t have an answer of what, if elected, he would do to reduce spending and the taxpayers burden, but that given time he would get an answer to the tea party. Bartel is challenging incumbent jailer, Greg Buckler of Mentor in the May 18 primary. Republicans Jim Sawyer of Newport and James “Tom” Sparks Jr. are also vying for the jailer’s job. Bartel also said he wants to try alleviate the lawsuits that are going on at the jail right now, as well as the deaths and escapes that are happening. Republican Jeff Kidwell of Cold Spring, an incumbent candidate for District 1 constable, said the job has very few responsibilities and his role is primarily as a volunteer to assist police agencies and to sometimes serve legal papers. Kidwell is being challenged by fellow Republican David Arthur of Alexandria. March 25, but did not speak during the forum. Leaders of the Campbell County Tea Party chapter, Erik Hermes and JR Roth, questioned the candidates about their experience, what they see the duties of the position they’re seeking and how each candidate plans to save taxpayer money if elected. Pendery said the county already spends one of the lowest amount per resident of almost every county or city government in North-
ern Kentucky. Pendery also defended 4 percent property tax revenue increases allowable under Kentucky law as necessary for the county’s budget to keep up with the rate of inflation. Franzen said his primary idea to save money was for the county to consider becoming self-insured. “Kenton County has been doing this for a long time, it saves Kenton County quite a bit of money,” Franzen said. By Kenton County’s esti-
mates it saves an amount exceeding “six figures” annually, he said. If Campbell County is going to be self-insured it is paramount the county attorney be able to handle that, he said. “And you know, I don’t have to hand it off to an insurance attorney, I’ve handled these things,” Franzen said. “I know how to do it myself.” Franzen and Pendery also both answered questions from tea party members at the March 25 meeting about the process of appointing a county attorney after Democrat Justin Verst retired from the job in December 2008. Pendery, appointed James Daley, a Democrat, as the county attorney. Both Daley and Franzen are seeking election as county attorney in 2010. Pendery said he had a personal and private conversation about the appointment with Franzen. There were two other attorneys who had been recommended by other
Tea Party meeting
attorneys for the position of county attorney before Franzen expressed an interest in the position, Pendery said. Pendery said he had experience working with the two attorneys, but not with Franzen, and knew they would both do a good job. Pendery said the person who was his first choice turned him down, and his second choice accepted the job. Tim Nolan of California asked Franzen if he had expressed his interest to Pendery about in the job prior to the appointment being made. “Well, when I found out about it, I did call Judge(executive) Pendery and told him I was interested in that,” Franzen said. Franzen said he called Pendery before the appointment was made, and said he learned the position was open when Verst told him of his retirement and that Daley had been selected to fill the position. While it was a private
The next meeting of the Campbell County Tea Party will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 8 at the Southern Campbell Fire District station, 1050 Race Track Road, Alexandria. Several candidates yet to be announced will speak at the meeting in a continuation of the group’s candidate forum series, said JR Roth, chairman of the Campbell County chapter. For information e-mail JR Roth at email@example.com. conversation with Pendery, Franzen said he did express his disappointment with the lack of transparency. Franzen said he’s not saying Daley isn’t a good candidate or can’t do the job, and the Republican or Democrat dynamic doesn’t mean much to him when it comes to the position. But a public announcement about the position being open and qualified candidates were being sought before a decision was made was warranted and didn’t happen, Franzen said. “It seems to me the filling of an elected position would be a public process,” he said.

The Colonel has come home. A bust of KFC-founder Colonel Harland Sanders that was stolen from a Berea, Ky., restaurant in January was found at the home of an Independence man Wednesday March 24. Independence Police Sgt. Mike Thatcher said the department is not releasing the individual’s name at this time. An anonymous informant advised the Berea Police Department that the bust could be found in Independence. Two Independence officers went to the man’s home Wednesday and discovered the bust, Thatcher said. Berea Police Officer David Wagoner said the man will not be charged for the disappearnce of the 18inch or so bronze bust,
A bust of KFC founder Harlan Sanders, which was stolen from a Berea, Ky. restaurant in January, was found Wednesday at the home of an Independence man. The Independence Police Department discovered the bronze bust and returned it to the Berea Police Department. which had been taken as a “joke.” “We are not going to charge him because he was
willing to turn it over,” Wagoner said. “I spoke with him on the phone and he said he had taken it as a joke. He apologized to me and told me to apologize to the restaurant owner.” Wagoner said the individual was “very glad” to give it up and would have done so sooner but he was “afraid he was going to get in trouble.” The bust’s sentimental value made getting it back the most important thing, Wagoner said. “We got it back. It wasn’t damaged. That’s the main thing,” he said. Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant owner Jean Anderson bought the bronze bust 38 years ago from Sanders’ daughter. Only 300 were made, and Anderson paid $350 at the time for the statue. “I was so relieved that I about had a heart attack,” Anderson said. “I hugged

and took a picture with him.” The bust, valued at $1,200, was taken Jan. 24 from the front of the restaurant. Employees told police that four young men were eating, and when they left, the statue was gone. The Colonel’s new home will be in the back, said Anderson, who won’t risk losing the Colonel again. “He used to be in the front,” she said with a laugh. “I was showing him off and somebody ripped him off.” The restaurant had offered a $500 reward in grilled chicken to whoever found the statue, but Anderson’s unsure how to repay the Independence Police Department. “We don’t know what to do at this point, but we got it back and we’re terribly grateful to the department up there and Berea,” she said.

Northern Kentucky Chamber president participates in trade mission to Dubai Steve Stevens, president of the Northern Kentucky Chamber, was part of a delegation of chamber of commerce executives representing communities throughout the United States visiting Dubai, U.A.E. The group traveled there to speak with business and governmental leaders about trade opportunities between the United States and Dubai. A highlight of the trip was for Stevens and other members of the delegation to meet with United Arab
Emirates Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai - His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. During the meeting, Sheikh Mohammed exchanged views with the delegation, discussed the current economic conditions in the region and around the world. Among the project sites and business developments visited during the trip were DP World - Dubai’s marine terminal Jebel Ali (Jafcza) and Free Zones, its health
care industry cluster Health Care City and the Dubai Financial Center. The group also visited with American-based businesses who have set up locations in Dubai. A roundtable exchange with the Directors General of the chambers of commerce from each of the United Arab Emarites also took place to discuss roles and functions of chambers of commerce within the region and across the U.S. “It was a great honor for us to be received for a meet-
ing in the palace with Sheikh Mohammed and his sons,” Stevens said. “We Kentuckians have a particular connection with His Highness because of his interest in horses. He is quite familiar with the Commonwealth since owns horse farms and races horses in our state.” During the visit, the Sheikh discussed the upcoming participation of he and his sons as competitors in the 2010 World Equestrian Games to take place in September 2010.

NKU receives Presidential Community Service award Northern Kentucky University has been named to the 2009 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, the highest federal recognition a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, service learning and civic engagement. One initiative that was a key to NKU being named to the Honor Roll was the university’s innovative Mayer-
son Student Philanthropy Project, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this academic year. “Our Mayerson classes are a marquee example of public engagement at a university that values public engagement as a way to give back to the community, but also as a teaching tool to enrich our classrooms,” said Mark Neikirk, director of NKU’s Scripps Howard
Center for Civic Engagement, where the Mayerson Project is housed. NKU’s range of public engagement outreach includes coordinated volunteer efforts; assistance with the volunteer-matching Web site NKYhelps.org; recruitment of students to be poll workers; co-sponsorship of the Northern Kentucky Forum to foster public dialogue around public poli-
cy; outreach and support to nonprofits through the Institute for Nonprofit Capacity; profiling of regional businesses growth drivers; regional technology entrepreneurial development; extensive work with the region’s P-12 community; and informative publications such as “NKU: Engaging with Our Region.” The Mayerson Student Philanthropy Program is a
partnership between NKU and the Manuel D. & Rhoda Mayerson Foundation of Cincinnati, and made $13,500 in grants to area nonprofits last fall. It is scheduled to make at least another $25,000 in grants when the current spring semester concludes. That will mean $477,000 has been distributed by NKU students through this innovative,
nationally recognized program. Since the program’s inception, 101 student philanthropy classes have been held at NKU. The classes incorporate the concept of teaching stewardship through a philanthropy experience across disciplines, with courses ranging from music to history, from elementary education to college writing.

Charity renews ‘Mission’ to offer help to community Mission’s pressing needs
Hundreds of people are still being helped meet the necessities of life each month by the Alexandria area’s largest charity. But to reflect a greater role of different area supporting churches, the Caring And Reaching with Encouragement (CARE) Ministry became the CARE Mission in February. The Mission’s warehouse and offices are in a building next to Main Street Baptist Church. It’s open three days a week serving 14 Northern Kentucky counties to disperse food and clothing donations and work with families to connect them with other social services and programs including job training and placement. “Main Street was the founder and is still a major contributor, but the long-term goal is for this to be a community-based facility,” said Sandy Daunt, a volunteer and the director of the CARE Mission. Between groups of volunteers and other churches con-

The Mission is having an April 30 open house, inviting about 50 churches to send five mission-minded individuals to see some of the recent changes and how everything operates, she said. There are six new rooms where clients can meet with the volunteer staff in private, and a new kitchenette and bathroom area that’s been opened up inside. The bathroom is especially helpful for the New Hope Center, a pregnancy
Besides monetary donations, to keep up with the demand, the CARE Mission’s current biggest need is to get back to having a box truck to go pick up food for the center three times a week and office furniture for the new offices including filing cabinets and waiting room chairs in good condition, said Sandy Daunt, director. Currently the Mission uses an old van that is hard to unload and is prone to breaking down, Daunt said. “It’s a short term need, but we figure it will take a long time to get it,” she said. To make a donation or for information call the Mission at 694-1222 or visit www.sievechurch.org/getconn ected/care.aspx. A new Web site, www.careministry.net, is still under construction. counseling service open different hours than the food pantry, for private testing, Daunt said. The services offered have been extended recently in what types of assistance is offered, but the guidelines
have become stricter to help the people with the most urgent needs first as more and more people seek assistance, Daunt said. For example, the Mission is offering more prescription drug assistance, but it’s only awarded on a case-by-case basis, she said. Recently an elderly man was having difficulties affording his prescription medications, and there wasn’t enough money left to help him, Daunt said. Although help was eventually found for the man to get his prescriptions filled for the month through another charity, the incident impacted Daunt. “It just killed me to have to turn him away,” she said. Visitors to the Mission are limited to receiving help once every 30 days. Food and clothing are the major issues, Daunt said. Between 50 and 60 families come and receive assistance each Tuesday, it’s about 45 families each Thursday and about 20 families each Saturday. “The economy is forcing people to come in and ask for help that have never been
here before,” Daunt said. Now more than ever the people seeking assistance are grandmothers trying to make it on Social Security with custody of three small children, single mothers and single fathers, and people who are out of work, said Penny Clark, a volunteer since 2008 from Alexandria who works with clients in the office. “It’s very disheartening for them and very humbling
for us,” Clark said. Community groups including students from Campbell County High School already help with food drives and donations, Clark said. “We’re trying to use the Lords’ assets as best as possible,” she said. Clark said donations are always put to good use. “Money turns into food,” Clark said.

Aided by sunshine and mid-50 degree weather, this year’s $500,000 Lane’s End Stakes once again proved to be the area’s biggest spring party as 21,327 attended the event. “We love Opening Day for the Reds and I love the Reds and the Bengals, but this is Northern Kentucky’s biggest sport’s day,” Turfway Park CEO and President Bob Elliston said. “The reason is, we get national television coverage through the USA Network and we get the entire horse racing world focused on Turfway Park in Florence.” An issue arose with the USA telecast, as the network lost its feed right before the Lane’s End Stakes. USA was able to pick up a feed from Turfway Park, which didn’t include the audio from track announcer Mike Battaglia. Nonetheless, for a brief moment, the track in Florence had the entire horse racing world’s attention.
The Spiral Stakes began in 1972, the purse was only $10,000 and 7,730 showed up to the race, which was created to become a prep race for the Kentucky Derby. Not until 1976, when Inca Roca won the Spiral, did a horse from the race appear in the Derby. However, the race was gaining attention and the pre-race festivities grew to an unimaginable level. According to “The Tradition Continues: The Story of Old Latonia, Latonia and Turfway Racecourses” by James C. Claypool, a festival was started in light of the success of the pre-race festivities during Derby Week in Louisville. “The two-week festival featured a home tour, a dog show for “mutts,” a beauty pageant, a show featuring classic cars, a big band din-
ner dance, a fish fry, a 5kilometer run, a children’s art show, a golf tournament, a country auction and hoedown, the Call to Post Luncheon, the Spiral Ball, and on race day, a VIP tent party,” Claypool wrote. Today, the Call to Post Luncheon and VIP tent party still exist. The festival concept was dropped in 1992. On the day of this year’s race, the VIP tent was the place to be. For $175 a seat, fans enjoyed a grand buffet, premium open bar and live entertainment. The tent also featured a March Madness lounge where televisions and couches were available for those wanting to follow the NCAA Tournament. Fans in the tent also shopped at booths for custom Kentucky Derby hats, fur coats, jewelry and Lane’s End souvenirs.
Inside the tent and in the grandstand, horse owners, politicians and local celebrities took in Turfway Park on the day of its big race. Some of the notable guests included Secretary of State Trey Grayson’s family, Vice Chairman of the board at Augusta National Joe Ford, Channel 9’s Clyde Gray and representatives from three of the four major Kentucky candidates for the U.S. Senate. “All the reserve seating is sold out and the weather brought a great walk-up crowd,” Elliston said. “There is a “who’s who” in the tent having fun. We have people as distinct as Vice Chairman of the board at Augusta National where The Masters is played … and we have folks out here just enjoying their cold Bud Lights, so everybody having fun.” One of the most famous visitors to the track may have been jockey Calvin Borel, who rode winners in the 2007 and 2009 Kentucky Derby. Borel won the Hansel Stakes aboard Cool Bullet earlier in the day and would ride one of the favorites, Northern Giant, in the Lane’s End Stakes.

Chris is the wife and Danielle is the daughter of Turfway Park announcer Mike Battaglia, who had to call the day’s races from the press box as well as provide analysis for the USA Network.
When it was time for the main event everyone in attendance had a horse they were rooting for, however the highest stakes were for six local charities. The Saturday before the Lane’s End Stakes six charities gathered at the Turfway Park’s Charity Night at the Tables, the event raised approximately $38,000. After that money was raised, each charity picked a horse at the Call to Post Luncheon. Since it had won the most chips at the charity event, Boone County CASA had the first selection. The other five charities each followed with their selections. The organization whose horse finishes best receives $10,000, second place earns $6,000 and the other four receive $4,000. “It (the race) is extremely intense and exciting, everybody is jumping up an down,” Boone County CASA Director Colleen Bohman said. “I mean you want your horse to win, but last year I think the last person who picked their horse won. It is just exciting to watch. You hope your horse wins, but if not it is not a big deal.” This year, Bohman had the first selection and she picked the morning-line favorite Connemara. Her selection came in third. The $10,000 grand prize went to the Gateway College Foundation after its selection, Dean’s Kitten, won the Lane’s End by 21⁄2 lengths over the Borel-ridden Northern Giant. New Perceptions had selected Northern Giant and won
$6,000. The winning horse, Dean’s Kitten, is expected to race in the upcoming Kentucky Derby May 1. The horse earned $291,000 of the $500,000 purse for winning the Lane’s End Stakes. “We have the best jockeys, the best trainers in the country and who knows, the horse who comes out of here has a legitimate shot to win the Kentucky Derby,” Elliston said prior to the race. “I think that all of that gets Greater Cincinnati excited about today.”

Summit students win at first Tech Olympics Expo Summit Country Day students recently won three medals and came in fourth place out of 40 teams in the TechOlympics Expo 2010 held at the Millennium Hotel in Cincinnati. TechOlympics Expo, sponsored by The Kroger Co., P&G and Atos Origin, was hosted by the INTERalliance of Greater Cincinnati, an organization which provides high school students an opportunity to network with local businesses and colleges. The expo gave students interested in careers in information technology (IT) the opportunity to network, have fun in technologyrelated competitions, learn more about IT careers and to learn about undergradu-
ate IT programs in Greater Cincinnati. The events at TechOlympics focused on either computer skills or computer games. Every event had a certain amount of points that were combined for a total school score. Winners in individual events included: A gold medal for Jay McLean in Nintendo Wii Tennis; a silver medal for Paul Slater for speed keyboarding skills; and a gold medal for Slater for the Disaster Recovery Challenge. McLean also received fourth place in the Guitar Hero event. Ty Wahlbrink made it to the finals in Nintendo Wii Bowling. Three Summit students

In a pickle
Frankie Pickle came to visit students at St. Joseph, Cold Spring in the form of author, illustrator Eric Wight. Wight, the author of the graphic novels “Frankie Pickle and the Pine Run 3000,” and “Frankie Pickle and the Closet of Doom” challenged students to use their imaginations and create their own story lines. Many of his main character’s adventures are based on the author’s own life experience and that of his friends. He told the students that drawing and writing, like any sport or hobby, takes practice.
NKU’s Reeda Hart named outstanding educator Project Learning Tree® (PLT), the environmental education program of the American Forest Foundation, has announced that Reeda Hart, a science outreach specialist at Northern Kentucky University in Highland Heights, was named one of five 2010 National PLT Outstanding Educators. She is a resident of Falmouth. PLT’s Outstanding Educators are selected for their commitment to environmental education, their exemplary use of PLT, and their exceptional teaching skills. Hart will be honored at PLT’s 24th International Coordinators’ Conference in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, May 17-20. Hart has worked at Northern Kentucky University’s (NKU) Center for Integrative Natural Science and Mathematics for the past seven years. Before that, she was an elementary school teacher for 27 years. In her current role as science outreach specialist with NKU, Hart takes PLT into classrooms in six school systems, integrating the environment into academic lessons and modeling teaching practices for teachers. She has created units on topics ranging from water to energy to life
cycles, using PLT as a foundation to provide interactive content that supplements the teaching of core subjects, methods for elaboration, and assessment tools. Over a three-year period during which she worked with six schools, the schools’ Academic Index scores rose significantly. Hart also helps the schools she works with design and develop outdoor classrooms, and emphasizes training for teachers in PLT to ensure the spaces are used as effective teaching tools. Hart is trained as a PLT facilitator, which means that she can train other teachers how to use PLT’s preK-12 environmental education curricula. “If we multiply the number of teachers by the number of students they reach each year, times the number of years they teach, it tells us how powerful it is to be a facilitator,” Hart notes, realizing that her work has touched the lives of thousands of students. Hart helped develop PLT’s new Early Childhood program that was launched nationally Feb. 17. This curriculum resource, designed specifically for early childhood educators, uses developmentally

appropriate techniques for connecting young students to nature. With Hart’s assistance, NKU is beginning an Early Childhood Alliance to provide PLT training to local preschool teachers. “Her enthusiasm and positive attitude toward science has spread to others,” noted teachers at Dry Ridge Elementary School in Dry Ridge who recommended Hart for the honor. “Students know she makes learning fun, and parents, the school nurse, janitors and other Grant County employees have been found ‘sneaking in’ to hear her lessons, too.” "Project Learning Tree is proud to honor Reeda Hart, whose passion for environmental education is helping students learn about the world around them, and their responsibility for it," said Kathy McGlauflin, director of Project Learning Tree and senior vice president of Education for the American Forest Foundation. “PLT is known for quality environmental education because dedicated educators like Reeda use PLT to engage students in handson learning about the environment, both inside the classroom and outdoors.”
The Division for Air Quality classifies the plant as a “Title V major source due to emissions of regulated air pollutants.” The hearing will be at the Campbell County Courthouse, 8352 E.

Highlands stirs things up with ‘Urinetown’
By Amanda Joering Alley email@example.com
A far cry from Highlands High School’s production of “Thoroughly Modern Millie” last year, this year students are doing something a little different. The cast and crew of about 60 students are putting the finishing touches on costumes and sets and squeezing in a few more rehearsals before Thursday, April 8, the opening night of their production of the musical “Urinetown.” A rich versus poor story, the satirical comedy musical is about town where poor people have to pay to use the bathroom and come together to start a revolution, said Director Jason Burgess.
“We wanted to do something completely different this year, and this show is completely hilarious,” Burgess said. Besides it comedic value, Burgess said he choose “Urinetown” because he wanted to challenge the students to really get into their characters. Junior Kori Hoge, who plays a lead role of Hope, said “Urinetown” is unlike any other shows she’s been part of in or out of school. “It’s a different kind of acting and it’s very challenging, but that makes it exciting,” Hoge said. Senior Charles Croley, who plays Bobby, the leader of the revolution, said the preparations and rehearsals for the show are going well, but it has taken a lot of hard
Students practice for their production of “Urinetown,” which opens Thursday, April 8. work. “This is different than anything anyone in the cast has done and there is a lot of music and a lot of lines,” Croley said. “It’s very overthe-top.” Junior Greg Bashford, who plays Officer Lockstock, said the main challenge for him was learning the music, in particular one song he performs alone that has a complex rhythm. Performances at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 8; Friday, April 9 and Saturday, April 10 and at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 11 in the school’s Performing Arts Center.
Fort Thomas students’ plans vary for this year’s spring break By Amanda Joering Alley firstname.lastname@example.org Students throughout Fort Thomas are enjoying a small taste of summer this week during spring break.

ably play some soccer,” said Vadim Lightner, a seventh-grader at HMS. • “I’m going to the Fort Thomas beach where it’s really warm and not rainy,” said Grant Giesey, a seventh-grader at HMS. • “I’m being awesome, and I might learn to become a ninja,” said Ben Lloyd, a seventh-grader at HMS. • “I’m going to Los Angeles to see my cousin,” said Emma Darnell, a seventh-grader at HMS.
• “I’m going to CoCo Key and practicing running for track,” said Kirsten Koehler, a seventh-grader at HMS.

Lunch will be a prom preview April 6 at Campbell County High School. The school is bringing in local businesses catering to a diverse range of students’ prom needs for a day so students can see what’s available locally, said Ashley Himes, a teacher, and the sponsor of the underclassman student council planning this year’s April 30 prom. Other area high schools have had prom fairs for their students, but this is the first year for Campbell County, Himes said. The hope is it will become an annual event, she said. The prom fair will be during lunch to give every student a chance to see it, Himes said. Vendors and businesses already confirmed they will attend include: Schrader’s Cleaners and Tuxedo Rentals of Fort Thomas, Four Seasons Florist & Gift Basket Boutique in Alexandria, David’s Bridal of Florence, Susan’s Salon & Spa of Alexandria, OCharley’s in Cold Spring, and Studio 27 Salon in Cold Spring. “We’re trying to stick with all local businesses,” Himes said. Several other businesses, including other hair salons, nail salons and more restaurants have yet to commit to having a booth at
the prom fair, but have been invited, she said. Schrader’s is offering a special service for tuxedos, Himes said. Orders and fittings will be taken at the prom fair, and the tuxedos will be dropped off to the students at school, she said. Most businesses will be offering some kind of coupons or special deals if students make an appointment or order flowers at the prom fair, she said. For students needing financial assistance obtaining a dress for prom, the school’s Youth Service Center staff is meeting with students separately and referring them to Cinderella’s Closet at http://cinderellasclosetusa.org, Himes said. Conversations of many students have turned to asking each other what they’re doing from prom, where they’re going to eat and what their after prom plans are, she said. This year’s prom is the Great American Ball Park to give students who were juniors last year a different prom venue to experience, Himes said. Campbell County’s 2010 Junior/Senior Prom will be from 8 p.m. to midnight Friday, April 30 at Great American Ball Park’s Fox Sports Ohio Champions Club. Tickets are on sale through April 2, and no tickets will be sold after April 2. Call 635-4161.

Chamber offers work ethic scholarships The Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, along with the Education Alliance of Northern Kentucky, invites qualifying seniors to apply for the 2010 Northern Kentucky Work Ethic Scholarship. This scholarship was created in 2009 to recognize and honor outstanding students from the region who have earned the Work Ethic Diploma. Each year, two $1000 scholarships are awarded to students from across the region that attend public or private high schools currently implementing the Work Ethic program. Students must be a resident of Boone, Campbell, Kenton, Gallatin, Grant or Pendleton Kentucky counties and successfully meet established criteria for earning the Work Ethic Diploma, as determined by their school’s representative for the program. Additionally, students competing for the scholarship must plan to be enrolled full-time at a Kentucky postsecondary institution, including those offering two-year and four-year degree programs.
“The Northern Kentucky Work Ethic Program was developed to encourage standards in students that were deemed necessary for success in today’s workforce,” says Amanda Dixon, Manager, Education Solutions, at the Chamber. “The 10 standards that were selected are: attendance, tardiness, discipline, grade point average, community service/internship, organization, punctuality, respectfulness and group cooperation. Fostering and developing these traits in our education system will serve to make Northern Kentucky students highly marketable as they enter the job market.” Candidates are evaluated based on a 500 word essay, meeting established criteria for earning the Work Ethic Diploma as determined by their school, financial need, and a commitment to display a positive work ethic as they continue onto postsecondary education or the workforce. To obtain an application or for more information, contact Amanda Dixon at 578-6396 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Bishop Brossart softball team is off to a 2-0 start and head coach Mel Webster’s team could be one of the strongest in the area. “I certainly think we’ll be one of the top teams, if not the top team,” Webster said. “We’ve got a tremendous amount of potential.” So far, Brossart beat Silver Grove 13-0 and beat Highlands 5-1 on the road. The Mustangs are led by pitcher Alicia Miller, who struck out 237 batters last season in 221 innings. She had 10 shutouts and four no-hitters last season, along with one perfect game. So far in 2010, she pitched a no-hit shutout against Silver Grove and a 2-hitter against Highlands. Webster said he has one of the best pitcher-catcher combinations, as catcher
Lindsay Griffith is another standout for Brossart. Griffith was the team’s leading hitter in 2009, batting .434. Both Griffith and Miller are juniors. “We really don’t have a lot of weaknesses. We’re strong up the middle and solid everywhere. It’s hard to score runs on our pitcher so if we get three or four runs a game we’re going to win,” Webster said. Among the team’s other standouts are first baseman Jenna Bezold, a four-year starter who led the team in runs batted in last season. She will hit cleanup this season. Second baseman Molly Williams hit .330 last year as a freshman and shortstop Emily Schubert is a great defensive player. Senior Krista Kennedy is a strong third baseman, adding to the talented Brossart infield. “We feel like we’re pretty solid. We have a lot of lead-
ership and experience,” Webster said. Brossart has won the district for the last four years and the goal this season is to get back to the state tournament. Webster said it would be important for the girls to stay focused. “We have to keep getting better,” he said. “No one does anything perfectly. We have to keep working at the little things and stay ready to play every day.” Brossart has a veteran team with four four-year starters and seven starters returning from 2009 but more important than that, Webster said this is a group that represents the school well. “They are smart and they play hard. They are a firstclass group of young ladies who give 100 percent all of the time. I think everyone would be pleased they represent the school,” he said.
Rick Blevins moves up from the Bellevue assistant ranks to take over as head coach this season for the Tigers. They went 13-9 last year and lost in the 36th District Tournament to Newport Central Catholic. The top players are senior outfielder Catherine Kessen, junior catcher Megan Arnzen, junior shortstop Taylor McIntyre and freshman pitcher Madeline Blevins. The younger Blevins started on the mound as an eighth-grader and had 119 strikeouts for the season. Overall, Bellevue has five returning starters and 11 overall, while enjoying increased competition as 27 girls tried out for the team. “We have a good mix of experience and youth,” Coach Blevins said. “The talent level for the young players is good.”
Walter Lambert takes over as head coach this season. The Camels went 8-11 last season and lost to Scott in the 37th District Tournament. The Camels graduated six seniors from last year’s team but Lambert has a lot of returning talent to build on.
Dayton went 10-9 last year under head coach Karen Fuchs, who enters her third season. The top returners are senior outfielder Sammy Powell, senior outfielder Allison Dilts, senior catcher, senior infielder Jennifer Ackerson, sophomore third baseman Shelly Centers and freshman Angela Taylor. “We have some very talented underclassmen who will be starting varsity for the first time,” Fuchs said. “As these players gain valuable varsity playing time, and their skills develop, our team will grow and experience success.”

She has eight returning starters to work with. The top returning players are senior third baseman Alex Sorrell, senior outfielder Devin Bressler, senior first baseman Eden Schlosser, junior catcher Allie Conner, and junior outfielder Jenna Theisen.

They are senior Liz Kroger; juniors Hannah Thiem, Stephanie Hardesty, Danielle Hausfeld, and Becky Blanchet; and sophomore Meghan Millard. Fifth-year head coach Denny Barnes said his team’s strengths are young players with potential and a strong battery.
The Wildcats went 3-14 last year under head coach Scott Taylor, who returns for his second season at the helm. The team returns all but one player from last year. The top returners are seniors Anessa Stamper (shortstop), Salem Thompson (infield), Anna Miller (first base), Jennifer Crail (outfield) and Felicia Kammerer (outfield).

Freedom switches divisions for 2010 By James Weber email@example.com
The Florence Freedom will have new division rivals in the 2010 Frontier League baseball season. The baseball team has been moved to the West Division of the league in a new alignment caused by a change with one of the league’s 12 members. The Rockford Riverhawks, located in far northern Illinois, departed to the Northern League. They have been replaced by the expansion Normal Cornbelters from central Illinois. The Freedom’s new division will consist of the River City Rascals, Gateway Grizzlies, Southern Illinois Miners, Evansville Otters and Normal Cornbelters. The Windy City Thunderbolts (Chicago) move to the East, which also features the Washington Wild Things, Lake Erie Crushers, Kalamazoo Kings, Traverse City Beach Bums, and Oakland County Cruisers. The Freedom get a slight travel break with the new alignment. They will make just one trip to Traverse City, the farthest team from Florence at 500 miles away. River City, one of two St. Louis-area teams in the league, is the farthest division foe away at 380 miles. Florence opens the year
at Gateway May 21, and has its home debut May 25. The Freedom are selling tickets for the 2010 season at (859) 594-HITS or online at FlorenceFreedom.com. May 21-23 at Gateway May 25-27 S.

Do you know how many people in Kentucky are age 65 or older? In the year 2000, that number was 504,793. How about the number of Kentucky homes that heat with electricity? 38.8 percent. Kentucky’s household size? … 2.47 people. Median age? … 35.9 And the percent of families with children 5 or under who live under the poverty level? 21.6 percent. How do I know all this? The 2000 U.S. Census. Call up the Census Web site and you are quickly overwhelmed with an avalanche of data of all kinds, shapes and sizes. It’s a dream come true for statisticians and a veritable play-
ground for anybody who likes to crunch numbers. But it’s much more than that. It’s also a treasure trove of data whose value goes far beyond Gov. Steve mere trivia. Beshear Census numbers suggest Community trends, describe Recorder demographics and guest help policy makcolumnist ers make thousands of decisions from where to build schools to what size road to build to gauging the need for social services.

Kentucky and Kentuckians take seriously the 2010 Census count currently under way. Across the state, Census questionnaires have been mailed to households. Households who don’t return the form should expect to receive a visit from a Census worker. The process is a daunting challenge – but it’s absolutely critical that every Kentuckian be counted. Preliminary estimates show our overall population has increased by more than a quarter of a million people since the 2000 Census. We need to verify and quantify that growth. The reasons are wellknown but they bear repeating: Among other things, Census data decides how many representatives we have in Congress. It helps dictate how big of a

slice of the pie Kentucky gets when the federal government divvies up some $400 billion in financial aid for states and communities. And it provides the basis for a number of policy and funding decisions on a community and state level related to housing, economic development, social services and infrastructure. “Be Counted in 2010” is the slogan this year, and it’s never been quicker or easier. The questionnaire is short and painless, just some 10 questions. It’s all confidential too. So as governor of a state where every citizen is important, I urge all Kentuckians to fill out their Census questionnaires and return them as quickly as possible. We need accurate data. We

What are your favorite Opening Day traditions? Do you plan to go this year?
Next question: How do you think passage of health care reform will affect the November elections?
“I like the way the city embraces Opening Day. I do not plan to go but will watch. Winning the opener is key to a winning season. Go Reds!” G.G. “Retired folks can’t afford $50 for a ticket, $50 for food, $10 for parking! We are scalped before we even get inside the stadium! The only baseball games we can afford to attend are the Florence Freedom games ... best ballgame entertainment for the money!” Duke “Why go to an Opening Day parade, where I’ll be continuously subjected to some unknown local celebrity perched atop a giant corporate logo, surrounded by drunk, conservative, orthodox meatheads who all think they’re the center of the universe, only to wind up in a stadium plastered with corporate logo’s and full of drunk, conservative, orthodox meatheads who all think they’re the center of the universe, when I can stay home, watch it on TV without the drunk, conservative, orthodox meatheads, and limited commercial interruption?” N.A.B. “I work downtown so it’s fun to watch the parade as it passes by. I watch the parade rain or shine.” S.J.P. “I can remember in the ‘70s that we used to listen to all of the Reds’ games on WLW, and although we never attended an Opening Day game, we did go to a lot of the home games. For some reason, we have pretty much lost interest in baseball – that’s probably a result of aging and the nasty stuff that is going on in the world that distracts us from some entertainment. But our Opening Day tradition was only to listen to the game, and enjoy it. Bring back Pedro Borbon, Davie Concepcion, Johnny Bench, Pete Rose, Joe Morgan, and all those guys and maybe we’ll get interested again!” B.B. “I always plant onion sets on
Send your response to email@example.com with “chatroom” in the subject line. Opening Day. It gets my vegetable garden going and growing. I usually go to the game, however this year I have Final Four tickets.” J.J. “We don’t have any Opening Day traditions which we follow. When Opening Day is here we know that the lazy hazy days of summer are not too far off!! Yea!!! Hope the Reds win the opener. That even makes the day sweeter.” M.E.N. “I do not plan to go to Opening Day this year. I work for an accounting firm so Opening Day is always during our busy season. As a firm we celebrate by having our own company cookout and wearing red. I grill burgers, dogs, brats and metts the night before and everyone else brings in side items. We all dine together for lunch and at least one person keeps an ear on the game and supplies the rest of us with updates. Go Reds!” D.M.R.

Lauren, a student at the University of Louisville, serves as Shickel’s intern for the 2010 regular session.
“Watching the parade and going to ‘Plum Street Cafe’ with my brother for pre-game beers. I did not score tickets this year so, no we will not be attending. Go Reds!” C.A.S. “I worked downtown for many years and we always watched the parade. Don’t think I’ll make it this year.” B.N. “Years ago when the Reds played at Crosley Field we would go to the breweries in Over the Rhine all had free beer and cooked brats and metts in their parking lot. Then we made our way to the game usually sitting in the field seats in center field. All this is gone so I guess I will just have to watch television and reminisce.” L.S.

Highlands student wins trip to Germany For three-and-a-half weeks this summer, Highlands High School sophomore Rebekah Agard will be immersed in the German language and culture. Agard recently won an all-expenses paid study trip to Germany from the American Association of Teachers of German. Agard was one of about 23,000 who competed for the trip by taking the national German exam and is one of 44 who won. “I’m really excited,” Agard said. “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity.” After scoring in the 90th percentile on the exam, Agard had to fill out an application, which included writing a letter and answer-
ing a series of questions in German. Agard also had to do a telephone interview, mainly in German. “I think her phone interview really showed her skills and personality,” said Linda Zins-Adams, Agard’s German teacher at HHS. “I’m very pleased that she was selected.” At least one student from Zins-Adams’ class has been selected to go on the trip every year for three years. During her trip, Agard will stay with a host family and get to visit different cities in the area. “I’m looking forward to experiencing the culture and meeting new people,” Agard said.

Celebrating the destruction of a bully Most of us, or our children, have at some time experienced being bullied. A bully seeks to intimidate, induce fear, taunt, or control someone considered weaker than they. What a relief it is when a bully is overcome or deposed. Death is a bully! All though our lives it elicits fear in us. Like a threatening vulture awaiting its time, the specter of death (death anxiety) sits on the branches of the tree of life. Its presence leads us to have unhealthy fears about dying, losing people we love, or being deprived of everything we enjoy and value. In fact, the fear of death paralyzes some people so much it can lead to an overcautious living of life (life anxiety). “Why love anyone if someday I’ll lose them?” “Why try to enter fully into life if it will someday come to a screeching halt?” whis-
pers fearful minds too afraid of the bully. A cartoon depicts the opening to a dark cave and a set of two eyes peering out of the darkFather Lou ness. Guntzelman The caption Perspectives u n d e r n e a t h says: “If you’re very careful today, nothing good or bad will happen to you.” The bottom line of Christianity is our faith in the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the deposing of the bully Death. Paul states the audaciousness of our faith, “For if Christ did not rise, then your faith is futile and your sins have never been forgiven... and we, of all people, are the most to be pitied,” (1 Corinthians 15:17-19)
Easter is the day we Christians celebrate Christ’s rising and his promise that we will rise, too. So we sing our Alleluias and celebrate. We take to heart the advice early Christians gave that it’s not right to be anything but joyful on Easter Day. We can go on fostering our fondest dreams of life and love, knowing our lives will eventually be transformed for the better and forever. The funeral liturgy affirms: “In him rose from the dead, our own hope of resurrection dawned. And now, the sadness of death gives way to the bright promise of immortality.” Poet John O’Donohue echoes the same point: “Regardless of how we configure the eternal, the human heart continues to dream of a state of wholeness, a place where everything comes together, where loss is made good, where
blindness will transform into vision, where damage will be made whole, where the clenched question will open in the house of surprise, where the travails of a life’s journey will enjoy a homecoming.” How timidly we state our triumphs and good health by the superstition of knocking on wood. We knock because it allegedly drowns out our boast. We fear that it we enjoy life too much the dreaded bully will return and wreak havoc on us. It’s as though we find it dangerous to hope for too much. Scripture does not yield to such superstition. Since God destroyed the biggest bully of ours, death, scripture doesn’t knock on wood. It has no hesitation in announcing it loud and clear. In fact, scripture taunts the bully of Death that still frightens God’s people so much.
It shouts: “Death is swallowed up in victory! “So where, O Death, is your victory? Where, O Death, is your sting?” (1 Corinthians 15:54-55) Furthermore, some people, such as the mystic poet Rilke, see Death being so totally vanquished it now serves us – almost as a friend. He writes, “Death is our friend precisely because it brings us into absolute and passionate presence with all that is here, that is natural, that is love. … This life always says Yes and No simultaneous. Death is the true Yea-sayer. It stands before eternity and says only: Yes.” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Then the magazines started arriving. He received two issues of “Golf Digest” and one issue of “The Family Handyman.” Doug immediately called the publishers of these two magazines and said, “They were very upset about this. They have canceled the subscriptions.” Doug said the publishers told him they’ve received
similar complaints about other such magazine sales firms and they try not to accept business from them. Doug said this is a lesson for everyone. “Go back and check their credit cards… and work with your parents,” he said. Doug said his father not only didn’t sign anything for these magazines, he should never have been called by that telemarketer because he’s on the national Do Not Call Registry.

As the nation’s population continues to get older, it’s more important than ever for children to look after their elderly parents. A local man learned this after finding his father had ordered magazines he neither needs nor wants. Doug Herberger of Forest Park keeps watch on his father, Adrian, who is nearly 80 years old. In January, Doug checked the mail and saw something that disturbed him. “I found a letter from a company that said, ‘Here’s the magazine confirmation for the magazines you ordered,’ ” Doug said.

Remember the request for the San Antonio parish pizza recipe from Mike, a Glendale reader? This church, located at the corner of Queen City and White Street, has a long and storied history. I thought my chances were slim to none that Iâ€™d get such a recipe, considering it was from the 1960s. I should have known better, as two readers came through. Tony Caminiti, who had no association with the parish but who had the cookbook, and Terrie Evans, the sister of Buddy LaRosa who is a member of the parish and who told wonderful stories to me about the parish and this annual festival where the pizza making took place. â€œBuddy still brings bread in to bake every week and we sell it for $2 a loaf,â€? she told me.

Tips for getting your plants off to a good start By Ron Wilson Community Press/Recorder Gardening Columnist
If you’re thinking about starting seeds indoors this winter, good for you! Here are a few tips to help make you a bit more successful with your seed starting adventure. First of all, you’ll need the right seed starting supplies: 1) Use a soil-less potting mix or seed starting mix. This mix is extremely important as it actually helps to hold moisture for the new
seedlings yet is airy and allows them to dry properly with less chance of dampening or rotRon Wilson off, ting. S o m e In the garden mixes may include a slow release fertilizer to help feed the seedlings very slowly and gently as they grow. Be sure to pre-moisten your potting mix before planting the
seeds. 2) Something to grow your seedlings in – small clay or plastic pots, Jiffy Cubes, peat pots, Cow Pots, or trays with cell packs are wonderful for starting your seeds. 3) Some type of shop light with regular fluorescent tubes will be needed to help supplement the much-needed sunlight to keep your seedlings from stretching. Remember to keep the lights within 3 inches of the tops of the new seedlings. You may need to keep the lights on 12-14 hours a day, even in
sunnier windows. 4) A misting bottle. This is one of the best ways to water your new seedlings, especially when they’re very young. Misting the soil is not so invasive and is easier to control the water flow. 5) A small inexpensive fan, and trust me, this fan is one of the key ingredients for starting seeds indoors. Placed away from the seedlings, it provides constant air movement around the plants, which helps reduce disease and rotting, and it also helps to promote stockier plants.
And here’s the most important thing to remember: Read the back of the seed packs for additional germinating information (do the seeds need to be covered, spacing, soil temps – generally 70-75 degrees during the day, etc.?), as well as how long it takes for seed germination and growing time before transplanting outdoors. Count backwards from our frost free date (May 15 or so), and that’s when you should start those seeds indoors. For tomatoes it takes
about 6 weeks (peppers 8 weeks), which means starting time would be right around late March/early April. Remember, it’s always better to start your seeds a little late, rather than way too early. Have fun growing your plants from seeds, indoors. Talk to you next time, in the garden. Ron Wilson is marketing manager for Natorp’s Inc.

Buckhout named executive director of Community Foundation of N. Ky. Charlene Erler, Chairman of the Board of the Community Foundation of Northern Kentucky, announced the appointment of Carol Buckhout as Executive Director of the Foundation, effective March 1. In that role, Buckhout will be responsible for administration of the Foundation, which provides oversight and financial and operational support for the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center, as well as other
Foundation programs and funds related to health, social services and education. “Carol has Buckhout made significant contributions to the Foundation’s mission, first through her contributions to our marketing and communications programs and more recently, as our interim executive director,” Erler said.
“Carol’s experience and dedication will be essential as the Foundation pursues its goal to become the Northern Kentucky region’s principal resource and advocate for children and our community’s well-being.” Buckhout has served as interim director of the Community Foundation of Northern Kentucky since October 2009.

who left the Foundation to serve as a senior executive at University Hospital and remains on its Board of Directors. Previously, Buckhout held several positions in marketing, communications and fundraising for health care and educational institutions. Most recently, she was the communications director of Beechwood Independent Schools and executive director of the Beechwood Educational Foundation. She has
also given many hours as a community volunteer in the areas of health and education. The Community Foundation of Northern Kentucky supports and enhances health, social and educational programs that benefit Northern Kentuckians, including the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center. The Advocates, a group of civically engaged volunteers, recently formed to lead fundraising efforts on
the Center’s behalf. For information about these events or to donate online, go to www.cfnky.org.

1.) Keep your pet bunnies inside in a large cage. Outdoors there is the weather to worry about and cats and too many other dangers to name. 2.) Make sure you have all the right supplies. Besides a cage, you need food, a bowl, water bottle, litter, storage containers and cleaning equipment. 3.) Give your bunny lots of attention. They have to play for at least a half hour a day. You can teach them tricks if you find out what they really like, like a special food treat. (Hopper, for example, can balance on a ball, hop down the stairs, play a keyboard and drive a pink plastic convertible.) 4.) Feed your rabbit a good diet. This means rabbit pellets, but can also include carrots, Timothy hay, apples (with the seeds removed, because they are poisonous to rabbits) and radishes. Do not feed your bunny lettuce since that gives them gas. 5.) Always love your bunny because after all, they deserve it!

Easter is upon us and the temptation is there to buy children bunnies as holiday gifts. But, don’t do it, pleads Mark Kerley of Bellevue, a graphic designer and owner of Lucky Rabbit Studio (www.luckyrabbitstudio.com). Kerley, who owns Sophie, a rescue rabbit, is an active member of the House Rabbit Society (www.rabbit.org), an international nonprofit organization that rescues rabbits from animals shelters and educates the public on rabbit care and behavior. He is so committed to the cause that he donates 5 percent of Lucky Rabbit Studio’s profits to the group. “Unlike chocolate Easter bunnies,” he says, “Rabbits can live up to 10 years. And being naturally skittish and not to mention, fragile, they aren’t the best choice for young children.” He suggests that a better choice might be a stuffed toy because, “Rabbits aren’t holiday gifts, they are live animals that need caring owners who will cater to their needs.”

folio. “She got a good grade on it,” her mother added, proudly. “I thought it would be super-easy to keep a bunny,” Barbara recalled. “And I found out that it’s not! There’s a lot to it. The truth is, they poop a lot and you have to keep their cage really clean. I do it at least once a week with a little shovel. First, I scoop out everything then take the tray from underneath and scrub it and put fresh lining around the cage. She throws a lot of litter and I have to replace that a lot.” The little girl flinches. “Oooh, stop that,” she gently rebuked the errant bunny, placing her finger gently on its nose, explaining, “She doesn’t bite hard, just nibbles. I call it a love nibble.” “Now, now, Hopper,” she coos, placing a kiss on the tip of one of its ears, “Be good, we have guests around. Bunnies are very loving animals. It just takes them awhile to get used to you.” Rabbits also shed, Barbara said, especially in the Spring and Fall. “That’s when they change their fur, so you have to keep them brushed. They are very clean animals and lick themselves so you don’t have to give them baths.” “The vet cuts her toenails once a year,” she added, “And checks her teeth to make sure that they are OK.” To ensure that her rabbit’s teeth don’t get too long, Barbara gives her chew sticks to gnaw on. This past Christmas, Hopper received several in the shape of pizza, burgers and soda bottles. But, she believes that all the hard work is worth it because, “She‘s the best rabbit in the whole wide world!”

“What in the world is that?” Nipper asked, sniffing my sweater suspiciously. His tail stopped mid-wag and stiffened. “Were you out playing with another animal?” “Maybe,” I replied hesitantly, feeling a bit like I’d been caught with my hand in the cookie jar. “Out with it you twotimer,” he said, heaving a sigh, then moving his nose onto my pants leg. “Don’t lie to me, that’ll just make it worse.” “Alright, it was a rabbit,” I admitted. “A rabbit,” he repeated, sarcasm dripping from his voice. “I see. Now I’ve heard it all. I can’t turn my back on you for five minutes.” “It was a social petting,” I offered, lamely. “It didn’t mean anything.” Well, actually it did, but Nipper doesn’t need to know that. I held a rabbit, cuddled it, even gave it a kiss or two because it was so darned cute. The bunny in question was Hopper, a dark grey, lop-eared rabbit owned by Barbara Nagel of Fort Thomas, a fifth-grade student at Johnson Elementary School. “Bunnies are cute,” Barbara explained, “But they need a lot of care if you are going to keep one as a pet.” The 10-year-old is an expert rabbit keeper, having acquired Hopper from neighbors two years ago. “They got a dog that was part retriever,” she said, rolling her eyes, “And they didn’t play very well together. So they had to find another home for the rabbit.” Barbara’s mother, Sandy, said that before Barbara could take on the responsibility of a bunny, she had to do some research. “I don’t know nothing about birthin’ no bunnies,” she quipped. “Seriously, though, I wanted this to be a learning experience for Barbara. The bunny was going to be her sole responsibility, so I wanted to make certain that she was prepared.” So the little girl headed to the library and checked out a half dozen books on rabbits and their care. She took the opportunity to write a report for school which then went into her writing port-
name, age, breed and a short explaination and I’ll post them on my Web site: www.marsiesmenagerie.com. You can also become a

Town & Country’s wraps up ‘Biggest Loser’ competition Participants in the third annual Town & Country Biggest Loser Healthy Lifestyle Program shed an amazing 1,755 pounds.

Somerset, Kentucky’s Premiere Inn Located Just Minutes from Lake Cumberland
There is a joke among friends here, “It’s a Phoenix that has risen from the ashes. ”When Charles and Allison Hahn Sobieck purchased the property at 502 North Main Street (in Somerset, Kentucky), there was a lot of work to be done, to say the least. With the vision of a B & B and a home in ruins, there were little choices. The dilapidated structure was removed, then reconstructed as it had been in the 1850’s. It’s a brand new home. A bit of an unusual concept for a bed and breakfast. “We reconstructed the home from scratch. This gave us the beneﬁt of designing every amenity possible along the way, ”said Allison Sobieck, owner. Every room is equipped with many amenities you don’t often ﬁnd in a traditional bed and breakfast, but rather a ﬁne hotel. Every room has a full sized closet with a pair of micro-ﬁber robes hanging in them, 400- count Egyptian cotton sheets, cable TV with DVD players, queen sized beds, and a host of other things. For instance, 2 rooms have gas ﬁreplaces and 3 rooms have whirlpool tubs. We even offer many add on amenities such as massage, dinner, ﬂowers, etc…
The rooms are only half of the reason to come to The Doolin House. Owners Charles and Allison just happen to both be chefs. Some of the breakfast specialties include Caramel Banana French Toast and Southern Eggs Benedict (2 fried green tomatoes topped with 2 slices of smoked bacon, 2 eggs over easy and Hollandaise). Chuck is usually in charge of breakfast and tries to do new and different things every day. Chef Chuck pointed out, “It’s fun to experiment with breakfast. It’s the one meal that encompasses all foods. It’s perfectly acceptable to see smoked salmon or a pork cutlet at the breakfast table. ”For those in no rush to rise and shine, breakfast in bed is served at no additional charge. When you need a weekend get away that’s not too far from home or you are planning your summer vacation to beautiful Lake Cumberland, remember that The Doolin House Bed and Breakfast is only a phone call away.
