BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS
CrossFit comes to Fort Thomas By Amanda Joering firstname.lastname@example.org
FORT THOMAS — A group of local friends are bringing their passion, and what brought the six of them together in the first place, to Campbell County. Kim and John Luber of Villa Hills, Toni and Jeff Baker of Independence, Lucas Vega of Florence and Marcus Repp of Edgewood are opening the county’s first CrossFit gym, known as a box, to Fort Thomas in April. Kim Luber said the group became friends when they started working out together at Cross-
Fit Northern Kentucky in Florence a couple years ago. After seeing the results CrossFit gave them and the friendships the exercise program helped them form, Luber said the group decided to open an affiliate in Campbell County called CrossFit SOTO (South of the Ohio). “There isn’t any CrossFit places in Campbell County, so we wanted to share this with people in this area,” Luber said. “We love the place we found in Fort Thomas and its proximity to the interstate.” Luber said CrossFit is a fitness program that consists of

constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movements, including some gymnastics and power lifting moves. Using a range of exercises and moves, CrossFit offers something different during every work out, Luber said, and is suitable for every fitness level. “That is one of the beauties of CrossFit, it’s scalable for everyone,” Luber said. “No matter what someone’s fitness or experience level is, we can make it work for them.” With the exercise used in CrossFit, Luber said results are easily tracked, and it helps people identify their own personal
strengths and weaknesses. “Everyone in our group has tried other things to get in shape, but this really works and you really get results,” Luber said. “CrossFit really challenges you and makes you want to try harder.” Toni Baker said besides the great results she’s seen from CrossFit, she likes the community aspect the program offers. “The community aspect is the thing I love the most,” Baker said. “I’ve made some of the best friends through CrossFit, and we all work together to keep each other going.” Luber said they often say
that CrossFit is the only sport where the person who finishes last gets the most cheers. The group hopes to open CrossFit SOTO in the next week or two at 640A Alexandria Pike. The location will offers classes from 5:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. to fit different schedules. There are several membership options, with a month-tomonth option available. Free classes are also available for those who want to try out CrossFit before joining. For more information visit www.crossfitsoto.com or find CrossFit SOTO on Facebook.
ON THE HUNT
By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
ALEXANDRIA — Cancer is a word that gets people walking in Campbell County with two different Relay for Life events annually. The fundraising and organizing season for the Campbell County Relay for Life summer event in Alexandria and Northern Kentucky University’s Relay for Life fall event both started the week of March 2529. Campbell County Relay for Life will be at Campbell County Middle School in Alexandria Friday, June 21, and the NKU Relay for Life will be on the Griffin Hall lawn on the Highland Heights campus Friday, Oct. 18. After four years of having the Campbell County Relay in Newport, the event is being moved back to Bob Miller Stadium in Alexandria, said organizer Mareka Mason-Miller of Alexandria. The idea was to generate more support for Relay for Life from northern Campbell County, Mason-Miller said. “It was great the first couple of years, but we realized it was southern Campbell County that was supporting it,” she said. More teams of people are needed to walk June 21, with 16 teams registered so far, Mar-

Day in the Park event April 27 By Amanda Joering firstname.lastname@example.org
FORT THOMAS — In celebration of Arbor Day and to spread the word about the nature activities Fort Thomas has to offer, the Fort Thomas Forest Conservancy is holding A Day in the Park event. The day-long event, held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Arbor Day, Saturday, April 27, in Tower Park, offers a variety of activities and hikes to appeal to

people of all ages and interests, said organizer Trisha Schroeder. “What better way to celebrate trees then having a day that highlights the forest and helps people to enjoy and protect them,” Schroeder said. “I think the diverse range of topics we have should appeal to almost anyone in Fort Thomas.” The day’s activities include a bird hike, wildflower hike, native plants presentation, wildlife of Kentucky presenta-

tion and history hike. During the Forest Treasure Quest, families can earn prizes for completing quests throughout the park. One of the main reasons for having the event, Schroeder said, is to inform people about the stream restoration project currently going on in Tower Park.

St. Elizabeth Healthcare and the Kentucky Farm Bureau are both major sponsors of the event, but more sponsors are needed, Mareka-Miller said. Sponsor donations can come in any amount, but the cost to be on the signage and event shirts given out to participants starts at $250, she said.

Schroeder said she hopes to hold similar events every spring and fall from now on, as well as smaller monthly events. dle light vigil, you have candles and all the light, it’s amazing and you just reminisce,” she said. Mareka-Miller said she and her family had to step away as organizers of the annual event last year after her father Kip Mason Sr. died March 30, 2012, from colon cancer. “There cannot be one person in the world who says they haven’t known someone with cancer,” she said. Mareka-Miller said her mother, Tina Baioni Pangallo-Mason, encouraged her to attend Relay for Life in 2007 and by 2009 they had taken over as some of the event’s lead organizers. In the summer of 2007, they brought her uncle Ray Baoni, who was fighting lung cancer and restricted to a wheelchair, she said. Her uncle died in September of 2007, Mareka-Miller said.

he couldn’t stop smiling as he watched others walk in support of him and other survivors, she said. “He couldn’t believe there was so much support out there,” MarekaMiller said. Her uncle was unaware there were people out there taking the time to think and do something about cancer, Mareka Miller said. All proceeds from Relay for Life go to the local American Cancer Society office to pay for transportation of cancer patients to their medical appointments.
Jodi Dunavan, a community representative for the American Cancer Society working at an office in Fort Mitchell, is helping to organize the Oct. 18 Relay for Life event at NKU. The early March 25-29 kick-off gives students more time to organize and
raise funds since many are gone during the summer months, Dunavan said. “On Sunday (March 24), I had a bunch of students just storm the campus,” We went to the thrift shop....and went out and placed purple T-shirts on the statues on campus.” Purple Relay for Life wraps were put around the trees, banners went up, and purple rubber ducks are being sold from now through the day of the event to honor someone. People will have the opportunity to set their named purple duck out onto the university’s lake Oct. 18, she said. Dunavan said NKU’s event is focused on the university, but it is not a closed event. “Anybody in the community is more than welcome to participate in NKU’s Relay, especially if they’re alumni,” she said.

State putting superintendent benefits online By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
By July, contracts and benefits for all public school superintendents will be found in searchable form at the Kentucky Department of Education website education.ky.gov. Kentucky Education Commissioner Terry Holliday and auditor Adam H. Edelen announced the initiative March14 as part of a call for more transparency to taxpayers. Dayton Independent Schools Superintendent Jay Brewer said he was invited to the March 14 announcement in Frankfort by Edelen as direct link to the school district's recent audit. A 70-
page audit released by Edelen's office March 7 detailed $223,672 in unauthorized personal benefits paid to former Dayton Superintendent Gary Rye. The auditor's office has referred the case to the FBI. It was Brewer who brought concerns to Edelen last fall about discrepancies he found shortly after taking over as Dayton's superintendent in the summer after Rye had retired. "If posting the superintendent contracts and evaluations moves us toward never having an audit of that nature as a school system again, then I'm all for it," he said. Associate Kentucky Education Commissioner
Hiren Desai said the point is to make superintendent public records accessible in one place without requiring individual open records requests. Posting a superintendent salary and contract are just part of helping people know what the full compensation for a superintendent is, Desai said. "To me, the salary is the easy part, but the hard part of what we can say is 'What are those benefits?," Desai said. Right now, it's difficult for people to see the sum total in one place, and the searchable website will change that, he said. The average base salary for superintendents in Kentucky is $119,000, he said. Some superinten-
dent salaries are as much as $190,000, Desai said. Those are high salaries compared to the income level of most Kentuckians, he said. Superintendents have a difficult job to do though, and in some districts they are also serving and being paid to perform the chief finance officer position and be the director of pupil personnel, Desai said. The online reporting will drive more transparency at the local level and let people decide whether they think their superintendent is a value, he said. "It might be a pro, we might say 'We have a great superintendent and he's underpaid," Desai said.
ADDITIONAL CHANGES COMING IN DECEMBER
Association Kentucky Education Commissioner Hiren Desai said KDE will implement new standards that will result in all superintendent board evaluations posted online by December of 2013 or January 2014. Putting the annual assessments online will be part of a new standard requiring board members to evaluate superintendents on financial matters, he said. “One of the things we’re adding is that you have to maintain a balanced budget,” Desai said. “You have to be able to communicate to your board and the public on fiscal matters.” Most board members know part of the job is reviewing district finances, but KDE does hear from board members who say they don’t know they can ask to see financial data, and that they are part-time board members. Changes to board member training requirements for ethics and finance are also coming, Desai said. Board members can now choose any type of training, including how to teach math classes, to meet certification requirements, he said. “We’re going to mandate that ethics and finance be a part of every board members training in the state,” Desai said.

Time to start thinking about summer camps land Heights brought her 7-year-old daughter, Rylee, to the expo. Rylee balanced feathers in her hand by a stem as she twirled and spun a Hula-hoop as a presenter from Circus Mojo in Ludlow told her about camp opportunities. Rylee will be going back to swing in tree-tops at A.J. Jolly Park with EarthJoy Tree Adventures this summer after trying it last year, said her mother. “She loved swinging, that was her favorite part, being in the trees,” Powell said. Circus Mojo is something they might also consider for this summer, she said. Beyond camps, Powell said she likes to provide her daughter with enriching opportunities. “She got a (Cincinnati) Museum Center pass for Christmas, and we’ll get a zoo pass,” she said. They also take advantage of opportunities available at no cost including going to parks regularly and library programs, Powell said. Rylee is in karate classes, and they work to find as many enrichment opportunities outside of school as possible, Powell said.

Blue ribbons symbolize child abuse prevention By Stephanie Salmons firstname.lastname@example.org
Blue ribbons – an international symbol of child abuse prevention – will soon abound in Northern Kentucky. Elected officials, judges, law enforcement, business leaders and community agencies will proclaim April as Child Abuse Prevention month at a blue ribbon ceremony hosted by Tom Gill Chevrolet at 11:30 a.m. Friday, April 5, at the dealership, 7830 Commerce Drive, Florence. Following the ceremony, guests may tie blue ribbons along the white picket fence facing the interstate where they’ll remain for the entire month. According to information provided by Tracy Fuchs, director of development for the Florencebased Family Nurturing Center, the month is a time set aside “to recognize our collective responsibility to prevent and confront all forms of child abuse and neglect here in Northern Kentucky.” This region ranks higher than state and national averages in the area of child abuse and neglect and Kentucky leads the nation in child abuse fatalities. “Children’s well-being is an adult responsibility,” said Jane Herms, executive director of the Family Nurturing Center. “Permanent cultural change in the way a community pre-
vents and responds to child abuse occurs by educating adults and empowering individuals. Committing time and resources to do this is an investment in a better future.” According to the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, in 2011, more than 5,000 children were reported abused or neglected in Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties combined. “The U.S. annually spends almost $104 billion on foster care, hospitalization, law enforcement and loss of productivity to society to address the needs of child abuse,” Herms said. “But we are not without hope. Child abuse is entirely preventable but it cannot end without the support of every adult.”
Guest speaker prosecutes abuse, sex crimes A New York City assistant district attorney who prosecutes child abuse and sex crimes – Jill Starishevsky – will be the guest speaker at the blue ribbon event. “It’s really an opportunity to bring together people and organizations working to teach people how to prevent child abuse,” she said. Starishevsky authored “My Body Belongs to Me,” a book that, according to her website, “endeavors to teach children that they don’t have to en-
dure abuse in silence.” According to the site, she prosecuted the case of a 9-year-old who had been raped by her stepfather for three years and told no one. The girl saw an episode of the Oprah Winfrey Show about children who were physically abused, with a message if one is being abused, tell your parents and if you can’t tell your parents, tell a teacher. The next day the girl told her teacher. Starishevsky says when her daughter turned 3, she knew she should have a conversation about “good touch and bad touch,” but didn’t know what to say. All the books she found were geared toward older audiences. There was, she said, “nothing basic for young children.” After speaking with her pediatrician, whom she asked “what do I say and how do I say it,” Starishevsky said she went home and wrote a poem about how she would explain the matter to her daughter. That poem became “My Body Belongs to Me,” and with the exception of two modified lines, she said it remained largely unchanged. The information, Starishevsky said, is presented in a “very non-scary way.” In 2011, Starishevsky discussed her book on the Oprah Winfrey Show.

Dayton recognizes students’ commitment to higher education By Amanda Joering firstname.lastname@example.org
DAYTON — Several seniors at Dayton High School took a step towards a more successful future Thursday, March 28, by signing letters of intent to further their education. During the school’s second annual College Signing Day assembly, 40 of the school’s 55 seniors took stage with representatives from various universities, colleges and technical schools to make a commitment to attend the schools this fall. “This event is like what they have at other schools where athletes get to sign with the school they plan to play for,” said school counselor Jen Glass. “We felt that our students committing to go to college deserved to be recognized for their accomplishments.” Glass said during the past several years, the district has been through a lot, with much of the focus being on the negative. This event, which serves as an opportunity for students to show how hard they’ve worked and how resilient they’ve been, focuses on the positive, Glass said. “This is just a way for us to recognize these students for all their hard work,” Glass said. Principal Rick Wolf said last year, when the students scored an average of 16.5 on the ACT, he challenged them to do better. Wolf said the students answered that challenge by bringing up the class average to 18. During the assembly, State Representative Dennis Keene, D-Wilder, congratulated the students on their accomplishments and talked about the importance of education. “Education is one of the keys

to developing our economy in the Commonwealth,” Keene said. Speaker Jack Moreland, president of Southbank Partners and former superintendent of Dayton schools, encouraged the students to work hard, stay committed and do something they really want to do. “If you do something you love, you’ll never work a day in your life,” Moreland said. To honor the students’ achievements, Keene provided a special pen, usually only given when a bill is signed into a

Alexandria teen heeds call to civic duty By Chris Mayhew
Campbell County High School teacher Geoff Besecker, left, and Mason Neltner, of Alexandria, attend the Kids Voting Kentucky civic leadership luncheon in Covington March 12. Neltner was recognized with the group's "High School Future Civic Leader Award" and Besecker was honored for his work coordinating 30 student volunteers at polling sites in the November 2012 elections.
ALEXANDRIA — At age 16, Mason Neltner of Alexandria, is already taking on adult-level responsibilities when it comes to volunteering. Neltner, a sophomore at Campbell County High School, is already a member of the volunteer board for the nonprofit food pantry and emergency assistance C.A.R.E. Mission in Alexandria. At 8 years old, Neltner traveled to Pensacola, Fla., volunteering with his church and family for Hurricane Katrina relief. “I’ve grown up in church my whole life, it’s kind of been instilled in me to just do the right thing,” Neltner said. Kids Voting Kentucky honored Neltner with the group’s “High School Future Civic Leader Award” at a luncheon in Covington March 12. Geoff Besecker, a teacher of social studies and AP government at Campbell County High School, was also honored by Kids Voting, during the luncheon, for his work to coordinate 30 student volunteers at polling sites in the November 2012 election. It’s a privilege to receive an award, but not expected, Neltner said. Neltner is the first person to jump on board when help is

needed for a volunteer project, and he does nothing half-way, said Besecker, who teaches Neltner. “He is extraordinarily selfless,” he said of Neltner. “He comes from a family that instills that type of value.” Besecker said his work for Kids Voting consisted of organizing 30 students to go out in three-hour shifts to interact with children being brought to the polls by adults. “I just talk to the kids about how important it is to have a positive attitude when they go to the polling places, because that's going to make them a lifelong voter,” he said. Some students volunteered because it helped them meet
community service hours for clubs including National Honor Society, Besecker said. Other students volunteered because Campbell County has a strong tradition of students who realize the value of giving back to the community. Besecker said he sees his role as a teacher of social studies, to “squish voter apathy.” The hope, through Kids Voting, is to encourage parents to bring their children with them to the polls. “I guess the biggest thing as a teacher and as a lover of the Republican-style government that we have, I have to instill in people that voting is a tremendous privilege that you need to take advantage of,” he said.

HIGHLANDS TENNIS HUNGRY TO DEFEND TITLE
By Adam Turer
Despite all of its success in 2012, the Highlands High School girls tennis team is entering the 2013 season hungry to complete some unfinished business. The Bluebirds won the 10th Region team championship for the eighth year in a row and advanced to the sectional final. The entire lineup returns this year, with sights set on a sectional team title. “The girls are focused on improving their individual showings from last year, as well as improving our overall team record,” said head coach Kris Laskey. This experienced squad is led by senior co-captains Hannah Laskey and Mallory Martz. Hannah is playing her seventh varsity season and wants to go
out on top. She enters the season with 92 career wins and should eclipse the century mark soon. “Her leadership and experience will play a large role as the team works to defend our regional team title,” said Kris Laskey. Hannah teamed with freshman Lexi Herman to win the 10th Region doubles championship last year and the duo should defend that title this year. They reached the quarterfinals of the state doubles tournament. This roster is closeknit, in part because it features a pair of sisters. Herman’s sister, Abby, is a junior and threetime state qualifier. Abby and freshman Sarah Hoffman reached the 10th Region doubles final last year. Hannah’s sister, sophomore Meredith Laskey, is the team’s top singles player. She has won the 10th Region singles championship four
straight years and reached the state semifinals in 2012. “Meredith is heavily favored to defend her regional singles title and be one of a handful of players to have a legitimate shot at the state singles title,” said Kris Laskey, the secondyear head coach and mother of Meredith and Hannah. Freshman Lauren Auteri also returns to the starting lineup. Junior Caroline Christian, sophomore Alexis Begnoche, and eighth-grader Rachel Zimmerman each saw some varsity action last year. This team could have rested on its experience and depth heading into the 2013 season. Instead, the players worked harder than ever this offseason, training at various clinics and playing in USTA tournaments. The expectations are high, but with good reason. The Blue-

Family Day Camps provide opportunities Last fall, a new program was introduced in Campbell County that provides families tools to address problems at home. Family Day Camp was launched initially for kids charged with truancy, running away, and beyond control behavior, and involves the parents and guardians as well. After years of discussion, Thomas Cox and I have partnered to establish a weekend gathering that brings families together to work on issues of bonding, boundaries, communication and problem solving. The camp meets approximately twice per month and most referrals originate from state social workers, local school districts, and family courts. Non-court referred families are

County. Thomas has conducted family mediation for nearly 20 years and has developed a program that teaches families a cognitive behavioral problem solving model they can begin utilizing the day of their first camp. The program is not intended to take the place of long term counseling needs, but
Is 401K good for America? Internal Revenue Code section 401(k) is the only section of the U.S. tax code that average people can cite. They know it has something, and often everything, to do with whether or not they can retire with dignity. The adoption of section 401(k) in 1982 turned out to be one of those big moments that changed everything. 401(k) plan investments are a primary driver of the investment markets. It is the employee retirement benefit that most companies offer. These plan investments are also the reason that many people are pacing the floors at night, watching their retirement get delayed or destroyed. Until 401(k) came along, pension plans were usually defined benefit plans. A defined benefit pension is one that gives you a set number of dollars for set period of time. It usually pays out over the course of your lifetime after retirement. With a defined benefit plan, the employer takes responsibility for making sure pension money is safe and properly invested. State and local governments are about the only entities that currently offer defined benefit plans. Most, like Kentucky, are struggling to figure out how to pay for promises to current retirees by politicians from long ago As a financial consultant, I advise anyone who can get a defined benefit plan to maximize it. As a taxpayer, I don’t want to pay for my neighbor to retire at age 50, when that is not an option for me. With the advent of the 401(k), employees with little or no investment experience were required to pick among investment options offered by an employer. Employees were put in the position to fail. Many have. It is up to the employer to pick what investment company handles the employee’s money. If the employer picks a dog, with few options, the employee is out of luck. Even worse, many companies push their employees to
use 401(k) money to buy stock in the company they work for. If the company goes broke, people Don McNay lose their jobs COMMUNITY PRESS and their reGUEST COLUMNIST tirement savings, too. There is a second major problem – not putting enough money in the 401(k) to begin with. 401(k) plans give people too much freedom. I’ve always encouraged people to put the maximum amount into a 401(k) plan. Few do. Many put in little or nothing at all. Now they are looking at a bleak retirement. Or no retirement at all. Two things should be done to help people retire. One would be to make it easy, and cost efficient, for employers to go to defined benefit plan and guaranteed income plans. That would make sure that our retirees have money for the rest of their lives. Second would be to change the way 401(k) plans are administered. Take them out of the employer’s hands and let employees invest in whatever, and with whomever, they like. Just like they do with their IRA accounts. When historians study the cause of the 2008 economic meltdown, they will see that the change from defined benefit plans to 401(k) plans in 1982 was a factor. It was one of many shifts where dramatic changes were made in people’s lives and liberties. People didn’t realize just how dramatic until years later. If we are going to keep from running behind, 401(k) is one of those things that we need to fix.

rather as an intervention than can help address challenges quickly and establish working rules for both parents and kids. I am excited to partner with Thomas while utilizing my prior experience as a juvenile justice official. Beginning in the 1990s, I helped establish the first state-wide alternative to detention programs in Kentucky, and have served as superintendent of the regional juvenile detention center for the 15 northern Kentucky counties. I have also worked directly with families while supervising juvenile probation, as well as performing casework in a private child care facility. My experience with adults includes programming that addresses mental health,
substance abuse and povertyrelated issues. Family Day Camp is unique in several ways. The program is open ended, which allows families to return for follow up sessions as often as desired. The cost to attend is minimal, thanks to scholarship funding which is graciously donated. In addition, the Family Day Camp methods can be taught to schools or agencies that would like to host their own camps. Camps can also be taken on the road to any organization that sees a need for a workshop that can help struggling families sort through some problematic issues quickly. In addition to our regular camps, we are now offering an intervention for child support
cases that employs our problem solving model. The Child Support Incentive (C.S.I.) includes assessments and education to assist parents with their needs in order to best meet the child support obligation. CSI is in the process of being offered to local courts and child support offices. Family Day Camp meets at the Awareness and Discovery office in Newport. For more information, call 859-283CAMP (2267) or 859-468-7052, or go online at www.familydaycamp.org. Keith Bales is co-founder of Family Day Camp, and has worked for the past two decades with families dealing with substance abuse, school-related issues, court intervention and parenting challenges.

Sprouting vegetable plants indoors helps extend the growing season up to six weeks for local farmers. AMY SCALF/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER
all-natural local food trend By Amy Scalf firstname.lastname@example.org
INDEPENDENCE — Something healthy is sprouting in south Kenton County. “The local food movement is getting bigger and bigger and bigger,” said Amy Powell, a third-generation farmer known for growing beautiful flowers and several varieties of heirloom tomatoes at Atwood Village Family Farm. Powell has partnered with Barry Schlimme of Red Sunflower Farm to start the Sustainable FarmShare Cooperative, a community supported agriculture (CSA) venture. Farmshare produce will also come from a third grower, Gretchen Vaughn of Greensleeves Farm in Alexandria. Their plan is to offer the most healthy, vibrant, all-natural produce to the region, starting April17. More information about FarmShare is available at the website, www.farmsharecsa.com, but Schlimme says it’s simple. “We’d rather take a bullet than put poison on your food,” he said. “We can walk out there and take a bite of anything. It’s only been touched by the sun and the rain, and it’s the most nutrient-rich, healthy food you can get. We are what we eat.” At all three farms, everything is certified naturally grown, and no chemicals or fertilizers are used, Vaughn said. Their nine-week spring shares, limited to 35 participants, are expected to include beets, carrots, chard, kale, lettuce, radishes, peas, spinach and turnips. “We have some good surprises up our sleeves,” said Schlimme. “People who join in know they have to go with the flow of Mother Nature and the farmers. They feel strongly enough about joining a CSA to take that risk. Even if the season starts light, they know they’ll make up for it in the heat of the season.” Schlimme felt the heat while he boiled 400 gallons of sugar maple sap water to make 15 gallons of maple syrup. He set up 83 taps to collect all that sap, and said he wanted to see how much syrup he could make. Maple syrup is one of the addons shareholders can purchase, along with herbs, eggs, bread and flowers. Greensleeves CSA members are in the process of planting 400 nut and fruit trees people can spon-
sor individually in memory of someone and then share in the harvest, said Vaughn. Shareholders will be able to pick up their produce at distribution locations in Fort Wright and Newport on Wednesdays or on Saturdays in Villa Hills. Powell and Schlimme are looking for another location in northern Campbell County for Saturday pick-ups, and they’ll offer a half-price share for the help. Schlimme also invites people to check out his farm. “Come see what we’re doing. We’re doing what we say we’re doing,” he said. “Community supported agriculture is really a great name for it. It’s a way for a bond to be created between the farmer and the consumer.” Powell helped Schlimme create “yellow sticky traps” to catch the flea beetles that ate so much of his eggplants’ leaves “they looked like lace.” “It takes a lot more time than spraying, but I was able to stay true to myself and my customers,” he said. Eggplants are expected for the summer shares, along with basil, cucumbers, green beans, okra, tomatoes, summer squash and sweet corn. Fifty summer shares will be available. “A lot of people like corn and tomatoes who don’t eat kale or bok choy or kohlrabi,” said Powell. “We will be offering lots and lots of tried and true recipes for things people aren’t used to eating. People who are getting kale every week and don’t know what to do with it. There are so many ways to cook these delicious foods. It’s so exciting.” Fall shares, for nine weeks in October and November, are to include cabbage, carrots, lettuce, potatoes, spinach, sweet potatoes, turnips, winter squash and more. Schlimme and Powell each plan to grow 40 percent of the FarmShare offerings, and Vaughn will contribute the other 20 percent. “The real advantage of having all three of us working together is that I can’t grow potatoes to save my shirt. Gretchen has a hard time growing squash, but she’s great at potatoes. So I’m going to take her squash and she’s going to grow my potatoes. We’ll take our own personal strengths and our soils and do our best,” said Schlimme. Reporter Chris Mayhew contributed to this story.

Greensleeves will not be at the market in Bellevue in 2013, and instead will be part of the Loveland, Ohio farmers market, Vaughn said. THE ENQUIRER/JEFF SWINGER Kenton County farmers Amy Powell and Barry Schlimme have started the Sustainable FarmShare Cooperative to provide Northern Kentucky residents with all-natural local produce and other homemade products, like bread and pure maple syrup.

Cilantro is an annual herb that likes cooler weather. If it gets too hot or too much sun, you’ll see it quickly bolting to seed. The seed is called coriander. Cilantro and coriander can’t be used interchangeably, as cilantro is the leafy part of the herb and has a citrusy, green taste, quite distinctive. The seed, coriander, has more of a lemony profile. Cilantro cools a hot tummy and is used in Asian, Indian, and Southwestern foods. Add it the last few minutes of cooking time, as it doesn’t hold up in extended heat. Plant cilantro in early spring and, if you want a continual harvest, plant seeds every couple of weeks. Cilantro helps remove toxic metals like mercury from the body and contains powerful antiox-

I guess it’s looking at all the seed catalogs that makes me hungry for fresh vegetables. When I browse through the catalogs, I can see myself planting a row of my favorite bush green beans, mounding up the soil around the red onion sets and staking the heirloom Rita tomatoes. Heikenfeld Well, RITA’S KITCHEN none of that is happening any time soon but I can still get high-quality produce from the store to make one of my favorite, healthy green bean salads. Here it is, and if you don’t have red onion, use a bit less of a white or yellow, or even a sweet onion. And if your onions are sprouting, you can eat the green sprouts along with the onion. Use the onion quickly, though, because once it sprouts, the bulb loses texture and weight.

Even though it may be hard to get children to eat their fruits and vegetables, or to eliminate sodas, if persistent, then efforts will pay off as children will be the ones requesting healthier foods as they get older. The Centers for Dis-
ease Control and Prevention recommends policy change as one of the most effective strategies for making significant changes in obesity at the population level. Effective obesity policy promotes changes in the environment that help individuals take responsibility for improving their own nutrition and activity habits. The Northern Kentucky Youth Foundation urges the General Assem-
bly to engage and voice a commitment of policy development for Kentucky’s school districts who play a particularly critical role by establishing a safe and supportive environment with practices that support healthy behaviors and provide opportunities for students to learn about and practice healthy eating and physical activity behaviors.

Women’s Crisis Center received a grant from the Avon Foundation for Women. Pictured are Heather Drinan from Avon, Victoria Parks and Anu Reddy of Women's Crisis Center. THANKS TO ANU REDDY
Avon awards grant to Crisis Center
The Avon Foundation for Women has awarded a $4,200.00 one-year grant to Women’s Crisis Center to provide emergency shelter for domestic violence victims and their children, a 24-hour crisis hotline, crisis intervention, counseling and safety planning, in addition to hospital and court advocacy. It is the fifth year that Women’s Crisis Center has received Avon
Foundation funding to support its work on this important issue. The grant is part of an annual Avon Foundation for Women program that invites Avon regional offices across the U.S. to nominate local domestic violence non-profit organizations for funding under the Avon Foundation for Women Speak Out Against Domestic Violence program.
Avon and the Avon Foundation for Women launched Speak Out Against Domestic Violence in 2004 to help end the cycle of domestic violence. Through the end of 2011, the Avon Foundation has provided more than $28 million for domestic and gender violence programs in the U.S., including support for awareness, education, direct service and prevention.
Being on a constant journey to stay healthy (and at a certain weight) I’m always on the lookout for that next little of nugget of information that gets me motivated and keeps me going. Some time ago, in an effort to encourage eating more fruit in our home, we adopted a “fruit first” rule. The idea is that if it’s between meals and someone in Julie House COMMUNITY PRESS the house is GUEST COLUMNIST hungry you eat fruit first (i.e. before cookies, candy etc.) If it is mealtime, there is always fruit on your plate and you eat the fruit first then too, before other items on your plate. The reason we eat the fruit first at mealtime is that typically fruits are more acidic than other foods, and as they go through your digestive system they clear out other “garbage” that might be lurking from previous meals and snacks and pave the way for healthy digestion of your current meal. (Great cure for minor indigestion and heartburn.) I’ve recently begun to really investigate fruits in an overall healthy diet. With so many diet plans and nutritionists steering their clients clear of fruits I became frustrated, often wanting to yell to the next diet guru, “Fruit didn’t get me 50 pounds overweight.” After much investigation however, there might be one minor need to raise awareness regarding the timing of our consumption of fruits (not the avoidance of them) throughout the day.
The naturally occurring sugars in most fruits are higher than in most vegetables. And although it is “natural sugar,” if not converted to energy it gets stored as fat. And there is no question about fat; it takes up greater space in my body and is harder to burn than typical calories alone. Eating more fruits earlier in the day, allows my body time to convert those sugars to energy and burn the energy rather than storing it as fat. There are also fantastic ways to get more acidic veggies into my diet later in the day that will also encourage healthy digestion if eaten first. Sliced tomatoes on my plate and adding sauerkraut as a side dish more often are excellent choices. And, if you can’t find a veggie that is to your liking, simply adding lemon juice in your water, or a splash of vinegar to your salad can boost the acidic value in your foods and promote healthy digestion and weight loss too. As you begin or continue your weight loss journey, remember, the natural foods of this world were created just for you; your pleasure; your enjoyment; and your health. So don’t eliminate them from your diet, simply remember that timing really is everything. “Those who are wise will find a time and a way to do what is right.” Ecclesiastes 8:5 Julie House is a resident of Independence, and founder of Equipped Ministries, a Christian based health and wellness program with a focus on weight loss.

Ofﬁcial Notice Owen Electric Cooperative, with its principal ofﬁce at Owenton, Kentucky and with its address at 8205 Highway 127 North, Owenton, Kentucky 40359, has ﬁled with the Kentucky Public Service Commission in Case No. 2012-00448 an application to adjust its retail rates and charges. The need for this adjustment is due to an increase in Owen Electric’s expenses in the areas of wholesale power costs, interest, depreciation, and general operating expenses. Owen Electric is also proposing a $0.001 per kWh increase to its Fuel Adjustment Clause to recover fuel costs it has paid to its wholesale power supplier but not collected through its fuel clause. This increase will last for approximately one year until all of these identiﬁed fuel costs are recovered. The rates contained in this notice are the rates proposed by Owen Electric Cooperative but the Kentucky Public Service Commission may order rates to be charged that differ from these proposed rates contained in this notice. Any corporation, association, or person may within thirty (30) days after the initial publication or mailing of notice of the proposed rate changes, submit a written request to intervene to the Public Service Commission, 211 Sower Boulevard, P.O. Box 615, Frankfort, Kentucky 40602 that establishes the grounds for the request including the status and interest of the party, and states that intervention may be granted beyond the thirty (30) day period for good cause shown. Written comments regarding the proposed rates may be submitted to the Public Service Commission by mail or through the Public Service Commission’s Web site at http://psc.ky.gov/. Any person may examine the rate application and any other documents the utility has ﬁled with the Public Service Commission at the ofﬁces of Owen Electric Cooperative listed below and on the utility’s Web site at www.owenelectric.com.

Cheese is healthy if eaten in moderation Americans seem to be adding cheese to more and more dishes. And, adding more and more cheese to those dishes. Cheese Diane consumpMason tion in America EXTENSION NOTES has increased over the years. According to the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) in 2011 Americans consumed an average of 33.5 pounds of cheese per person. This is the second highest amount on record. The most popular cheese recipe in the United State is macaroni and cheese according to the IDFA. Take a few minutes to think of all the foods you eat that include cheese. You may be surprised to discover all of the foods that have cheese in them. Cheese provides some important nutrients including protein and calcium in our diets. However, cheese can also provide significant amounts of fat, saturated fat, and sodium. If you are working to improve your heart health or overall health, you may want to take a closer look at your cheese consumption. A single slice of American cheese usually provides between 70 and 110 calories with more than 70 percent of those calories coming from fat. One ounce of part-skim mozzarella provides about 72 calories while one ounce of cheddar
cheese has about 114 calories. While cheese can be a great addition to foods and your eating plan, you may want to consider the kinds and amounts of cheese you use. Consider the following tips for getting the most from the cheeses you choose. » Choose strongly flavored cheeses. You may then use less of them. Parmesan and bleu cheeses might be ones to consider. » Opt for hard or natural cheeses instead of processed cheeses. Hard cheeses tend to have fewer calories from fat. » Consider the portion size. A one-ounce portion of cheese is about the size of two dice or about 1/4 cup shredded cheese. » Decide to limit the items you add cheese to. Do you need a cheeseburger or would a hamburger suit you as well? Does cheese need to go on every sandwich you eat? » Use less. Opt for one slice of cheese instead of two, and use less on your pizza or chili. After looking at your cheese eating habits you might choose to make a small change or two. Cheese can be an important part of a healthy eating plan, but you may be able to improve your overall health if you make some small changes in your cheese choices.

During the eight-week program, Porter completed a variety of training which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness. The capstone event of boot camp is “Battle Stations.” This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. “Battle Stations” is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of honor, courage and commitment. Its distinctly Navy flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a sailor. Porter is a 2008 graduate of Campbell County High School.

Problem gambling a growing concern Community Recorder
Humans gambled in prehistoric times, archeologists proved when they unearthed bones used for castinglots.Gamblingisrecorded in the Bible. Gambling always has been part of human behavior. Why, in 2013, is problem gambling a growing concern? Current research and public health actions shed new light on problem gambling. It can be diagnosed. It isatreatableaddiction.Individuals can practice safe gambling behavior to minimize the negative aspects of gambling. In 2013, the American Psychiatric Association will release the Fifth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the Mental Disorders (DSM-5). In it, pathological gambling (also called compulsive or addicted gambling) will be reclas-
sified as a process addiction. With the move to the addictions category, more individuals seeking help for a variety of behavioral and health problems will be screened for gambling addiction. The result will be an increase in the number of problem gamblers surfacing for treatment, predicted Michael R. Stone, executive director, the Kentucky Council on Problem Gambling (KYCPG), a nonprofit organization whose mission is to raise awareness of problem gambling. “According to national data, 2-3 percent of the U.S. population will have a gambling problem in any given year,“ Stone explained. “In Kentucky, that translates to 67,000100,000 individuals 18 years of age or older.

If you or someone you know thinks there may be a gambling problem, a two-question self-test is available to determine whether gambling could be a concern: 1. Have you ever lied about how much you gamble? 2. Have you felt the need to bet more and more money? Answering “yes” to either question indicates a likelihood there may be a gambling problem. Further examination of the gambling behavior is needed by a counseling professional or at a Gamblers Anonymous meeting. Help is available at 1-800-GAMBLER (1-800-426-2537). Call the free, confidential helpline any time. Talk to a trained telephone counselor who can provide information, resources and referrals.
KYCPG in 2008 showed 9,000 addicted gamblers and another 50,000 problem gamblers in Kentucky. The need is evident, particularly when research shows each addicted gambler impacts five to 10 other people, and other research shows the collective social cost of each addicted gambler
is $9,000 per year.” Kentucky currently has four, actively practicing Certified Gambler Counselors (CCGCs), and they are located in just three communities: Henderson, Louisville and Owensboro. Only one of the state’s Community Mental Health Centers (CMHCs) has a CCGC on

staff. KYCPG estimates, based on information received from other states, that Kentucky needs at least 14, and as many as 24, CCGCs to meet the current demand for services, Stone reported. Yet, in spite of Kentucky sanctioning legal gambling at race tracks, bingo halls and with the lottery, and collecting more than $200 million each year in revenue from gambling, there is no state-funded program to address an addiction that may develop from participating in this legal gambling. KYCPG is participating in activities to raise awareness about problem and pathological gambling and promote responsible gaming behavior. KYCPG advocates a simple, personal responsible gaming strate-
gy. “If everyone used the ‘Whether, When and How Much?’ process, KYCPG believes gambling problems could be lessened,” Stone explained. If a person is considering gambling, he or she can ask three questions: » Whether to gamble? Is the gambling for entertainment only? » When to gamble? Is the gambling free of emotional stress? » How much to gamble? Are there set limits regarding both money and length of time for gambling? Individuals who wish to learn more about problem and pathological gambling may visit the KYCPG website, www.kycpg.org, or go to the National Problem Gambling Awareness Week website, www.npgaw.org.

Grant encourages early detection Community Recorder
The Avon Breast Health Outreach Program has awarded a $35,000 one-year grant to St. Elizabeth Healthcare to increase awareness of the life-saving benefits of early detection of breast cancer. It is the seventh year that the program has received funding from the Avon Foundation for Women to support its work on this important health issue, and in recognition of the program’s excellence. The Appalachian Help, Outreach, Prevention and Education program at St. Elizabeth Healthcare will educate Northern Kentucky area women and bring to them low-cost or free mammograms and clinical breast exams in their own neighborhoods through the St. Elizabeth mobile mammography program. The vital program provides professional staff for individual and community education, individual follow-up, and provides coordination of followup services for women with abnormal mammograms or clinical breast exams. Since January 2007, the A HOPE program at St. Elizabeth has reached more than 10,000 women with information about the importance of early detection of breast cancer and has referred almost 4,000 women for mammograms and clinical breast exams.
