RUNNING TO SUCCESS Track teams on the mark


Students map course to bee By Chris Mayhew

FORT THOMAS — Of the 97 students competing at the April 4 National Geographic Bee in Bowling Green, Ky., three were from Fort Thomas. Christopher Kirkwood, an eighth-grader at Highland Middle School, and Case W. Grillot, a fourth-grader at Johnson Elementary School, each made the top 10. Warren Naberhaus, a seventh-grader at St. Thomas School, competed at the competition and missed the top 10. Brian Davis, an eighth-grader at Villa Madonna Academy in Villa Hills, also made the top 10. Kirkwood, 14, said it took

many questions to narrow the top 10 down because the contestants at that point knew most of the answers. A question about what the state has the most miles of oil pipeline ended the competition for Kirkwood. “The choices were Louisiana and Idaho and I guessed Idaho,” he said. “It was Louisiana.” Kirkwood said he loves studying geography, and found the entire process fun. “I thought it was pretty cool and all being up on stage and around all the other kids,” he said. Naberhaus did well in the preliminary rounds of the April 4 bee, but did not make it into the top 10, said Amy Nemon, an

instructor of geography at Western Kentucky University who oversaw the contest. Nemon said how well participants do before they get to the top10 is not tracked. He is the son of Christian and Rose Naberhaus of Fort Thomas. Prior to the competition, Naberhaus said the time he spent poring over maps at home helped get into the state championships. Students who won their school geography bee were eligible to take an online test for the chance to be one of the students picked to be in the state competition. Naberhaus said he looks at books and maps constantly in

his spare time at home to memorize not only the capitals of countries, but significant rivers and other natural landscape features. It’s important in competition to know things including what countries the Himalaya mountains are in, he said. The answer is the nations of Afghanistan, Bhutan, China, India, Nepal and Pakistan, he said. “One of the best things to do is just sit down and look at a map and look at where things are,” Naberhaus said. Studying geography also means learning facts about a region’s culture and religions, he See MAP, Page A2

Warren Naberhaus, 12, of Fort Thomas, sits in the St. Thomas School library where he spends time reading books about geography in his spare time.CHRIS MAYHEW/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

Campbell farmers markets primed for May start

By Chris Mayhew

There are green tomatoes on the plants in the Neltner Farm greenhouses in Camp Springs already as farmers market season is ready to begin in May. Opening day for the Fort Thomas Farmers Market is Wednesday, May 7, in the Midway District, and the Campbell County Farmers Market, which operates at three different locations, will begin Tuesday, May 13, in the Lakeside Terrace parking lot at 3504 Alexandria Pike in Highland Heights. Fort Thomas will likely add a waffle food truck to this year’s list of vendors, but that has not been confirmed yet, said Debbie Buckley, renaissance manager for Fort Thomas. The city has two different

Campbell County is embarking on a jail expansion to house 108 more inmates and a new heroin recovery program instead of waiting on state assistance. Fiscal Court heard a first reading of an ordinance at its April 2 meeting authorizing the county to borrow up to $2.5 million to convert the district court offices at 600 Columbia St., Newport, into a jail. The current Campbell County Detention Center is next to the the district court offices. The county will be the first in Northern Kentucky to institute an in-jail drug treatment program as part of the regional fight against heroin, said Judge-executive Steve Pendery. It plans to pay for a substance abuse treatment program focused on heroin because there is no state funding available at the moment, Pendery said. “We’ll do everything we can to not pay for that, but we’re not going to wait,” he said. Pendery said the county expects to have the funding in place to start construction by July. The type of treatment program the county will create is still being discussed, so the costs have not been determined, Pendery said. Jail is the destination for many heroin users for reasons including being arrested for thefts to pay for their addiction, he said. “They are a captive audience when they’re in our jail,” Pendery said. “They’re already being housed and fed, and they should also get drug treatment.” The addition to the jail will be the fifth and final phase of

an expansion that started in 2005. The jail has 549 beds now and will have 657 beds after the new addition is complete. Pendery Commissioner Ken Rechtin said the county’s original plans for the final addition was to build minimum security space for class D felons eligible to work in the community. “That is the most profitable area,” Rechtin said. Kentucky pays the county the same $31.34 daily rate for each state prisoner whether they are in minimum or maximum security ares, he said. The new addition will now be a maximum security area. “It’s a different type of inmate,” Rechtin said. Continued renovation of the county’s courthouse at 330 York St., Newport, has meant not all of the district court offices have moved out as Pendery had requested happen by March 1. Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine said the county has sent a new letter to the Kentucky Administrative Office of the Courts saying be out of the district court space by June. 1. District court judges and courtrooms moved out of the Columbia Street space and into the courthouse on York Street in June 2012. Offices for the Campbell Commonwealth Attorney, mental health court, drug court, court designated workers and pre-trial services remain in the old district court building. Horine said. “We’re eager to proceed with plans to reuse that space to meet our needs at the jail,” he said.

Authors delve into UK-U of L rivalry By Stephanie Salmons

Ryan Clark grew up a fan of Kentucky basketball. “It all started with my granddad,” the Burlington resident says. “I grew up in Louisville, but he says he got to me first, before any U of L fans could. So I grew up a UK fan and loved their basketball squad ever since then.” Clark, 34, has just published his second book on UK with friend Joe Cox, “Fightin’ Words: Kentucky vs. Louisville.” “I’ve written a few others but writing about UK basketball is the most fun I’ve ever had,” he said. He and Cox had just finished their last book, “100 Things Wildcats Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die,” when they began to wonder what was next. Cox, 33, said the idea was one he had more than a decade ago. While Cox, who lives near and works in Bowling Green, is a Kentucky fan – he and Clark met watching a Kentucky

We both thought we would love to read that.” Clark says a book like this had never been written before. “I personally know friends in the sportswriting business – people who are real journalism celebrities – who wanted to write this book but never did,” Clark said. “This is the biggest rivalry in college basketball. The emotion and the characters involved are second to none.”

Kevin Neltner said his red and yellow tomatoes will not be ready for market until June, but he will be bringing lettuce, cucumbers and greens to the markets in May. Neltner Farm, in Camp Springs, sells at the Fort Thomas and Campbell County market. The Neltner family also sells produce at Findlay Market in Cincinnati starting at the end of April and at Nativity Parish, off Ridge Avenue in Pleasant Ridge in Cincinnati, each Monday starting in May, he said. Flowers and greens will be all that is available at the first county farmer’s market, said David Koester, Campbell County extension agent for horticulture.

said. In competition, questions have to be answered in 15 seconds. Contestants in the bee can ask for a question to be read again, but there are no hints. Naberhaus said he talks with his father, who is also interested in geography, about the world’s countries, mountains, oceans and rivers. “It’s good to know what’s around and what the world is,” he said. St. Thomas Principal Barry Thomas said geography is taught in some way at all grade levels at the school. “We do have a heavy focus on geography in junior high,” Thomas said. Lists of top-performing students at St. Thomas usually include Naberhaus’ name, he said, and Naberhaus took home a trophy in the Diocese of Covington’s academic competition, Thomas said. “Warren, he is an ... exceptional student,” Thomas said.

Koester works with farmers to organize the county market, which operates in Highland Heights, Alexandria and Newport on different days of the week. The market will also have homemade products, including baked goods made by Little Rock Farm owner Stephanie Zink in May, Koester said. New vendors at the county farmers market this year will include Greensleeves Farm, an organic produce grower from south of Alexandria. No vendors have left the county market, Koester said. “It’s definitely growing,” he said.

Class is ticket to learn about police work

By Chris Mayhew


Cold Spring resident Doug Cochran discovered how police officers watch for drug use and theft in a Newport shopping center parking lot during last year’s Campbell County Consolidated Citizens Police Academy. The Campbell County Police Chiefs Association is offering the academy for a third year beginning Wednesday, April 30. Classes meet at 7 p.m. each Wednesday for 12 weeks at different locations. As part of the academy, people will tour the county jail in Newport and use a computer simulator to practice split-second shoot-or-don’t-shoot scenarios police face. Participation in the class requires submitting an application and authorizing police to do a background check.

For information about how to participate in the next Campbell County Consolidated Citizens Police Academy and a link to an application go to


Cochran, 49, took last year’s academy with his wife Amanda. “It was truly eye-opening,” he said. “I was in awe of what they do, and in awe of what I didn’t know.” Now, when Cochran is loading his car with groceries at the Newport Pavilion he knows people might be watching to take a purse left unattended, and knows police watch the parking lots. “We learned that’s a common place for people to use the drugs that they buy,” he said.


Cochran said he took the class to better understand how police deal with crime in the county he has lived in since moving from Wyoming, Ohio, in 1996. “I have no aspirations to become a police officer,” Cochran said. “My wife and I, we both just wanted to become better citizens.” The best part of the academy was learning what officers deal with daily, he said. “You got to know these men and women on a little more of a limited personal basis,” he said. “They’re not just somebody in a uniform you wave at as

they go by.” Campbell County Police Department Chief Kieth Hill said a consolidated academy shows how police agencies work together and share information. Previously, the county police department and other departments offered their own unique citizen academies, Hill said. Now, all participants in the consolidated class can hear from the officer specializing in drug investigations from the Highland Heights Police Department, Hill said. Cold Spring Police Department Chief Ed Burk said academy participants get to hear from 911 dispatchers and experts in investigations and polygraphs. A visit to the Beckfield College firearms training simulator in Florence will put people through a set of scenarios, Burk said. “These are things that

we have to do in real time, and then someone says ‘Why did we shoot?,” he said. The class also offers a chance to ride along with an officer for part or all of a shift, Burk said. The point of the class is to share with the public how police operate and

Cline wins district crown The Cline Elementary School academic team finished in first place at the recent District Governor’s Cup competition. Cline scored 44 points to edge second-place Woodfill (34) and third-place Crossroads (18). The Cline quick recall team also finished first. Individual winners included:


» Ethan Schwalbach, first place in mathematics; » Ethan Schnee, first place in science and second place in mathematics; » Lauren Taylor, first place in language arts and third place in mathematics; » Aaron Schnee, second place in science;

» Jeffrey Joering, fifth place in social studies; » Owen Ponting, third place in arts and humanities and fifth place in language arts; » Mattea Meiser, first place in composition; and » Katherine Hume, sportsmanship award.

Gateway Community and Technical College expects to relocate to the Urban Metro Campus by the start of the fall 2014 semester, which begins Aug. 15. In separate emails to employees and students, Gateway President/CEO Ed Hughes said the college will move nearly all of the programs now taught at its existing Covington/Park Hills campus on Amsterdam Road to the new campus being developed in downtown Covington. The Gateway Community and Technical College Foundation is currently transforming the former Marx building at 615-622 Madison Ave. into the Gateway Technology and Design Center. The renovation work being done by Century Construction is slated to be finished this summer, enabling the college to expand its offerings at the downtown campus. “After a dozen years of discussion, planning and activity, our move to the Urban Metro Campus will take a huge step forward beginning this summer as we implement the next phase of development,” Hughes said, noting the moves will occur in three phases by the end of 2014. “The transition represents a very exciting opportunity for our faculty, staff, students and the community we serve,” he added. “The Urban Metro Campus offers many unique advantages; most importantly for our students, the renovated historical buildings will contain state-of-the art teaching and learning centers.” In the first phase of the relocation, five programs will move to the developing campus from the Amsterdam Road location. These programs include business administration, computer and information technology, criminal justice, education, and interdisciplinary early childhood education. The instructional design and learning technology program and the visual communication program currently housed at Odd

Fellows Hall also will relocate into the Technology and Design Center in time for fall classes. In addition, the college will Hughes add many more classes in general education at the Urban Metro Campus; these are designed to enable students to transfer to senior institutions. “Our goal is to have in place the classes most students need to complete their general education degree requirements without their having to travel to one of the other GCTC campuses,” Hughes said. In the second phase of the process, the college’s Amsterdam Road bookstore operated by Barnes & Noble will move into newly renovated space at 614 Madison Ave. That move is expected to be completed in November. Hughes said he will maintain office space at this location, just as he did at the Amsterdam Road campus. The third phase will take place in December and January after the renovation of a building at Fifth and Scott streets formerly occupied by the Abode Furniture store. There the college will house the cosmetology and massage therapy programs together to create a student-led urban spa. Hughes noted that many of the graduates from these programs eventually own their own businesses. “As part of the student’s education, the creation of a spa environment will give students a unique chance to learn how to operate a business,” he said. In related moves, the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) and plumbing technology programs will relocate to the Boone Campus in Florence this summer. The college’s programs in automotive, diesel and collision repair will remain at the Amsterdam Road campus for the time being.

When Brennan Sweeney was wanting to provide his 9year-old son more summer enrichment opportunities, he couldn’t find the level of information about available programs he needed to make a decision. “There was really no place where I went to find all the listings,” said Sweeney, 36, of Union. So the former business consultant and entrepreneur took matters into his own hands. His new website,, developed with Mount Lookout resident J.B. Woodruff, features a comprehensive list of camp programs and user reviews with focused program searches and social media capabilities, a press release says. The site lets parents shop around for the best program for their child’s specific personality, needs and interest. At the same time, it eliminates the need to visit camp fairs or

scour the Internet for information. “What better way to find a great camp program than hearing about it from people Sweeney you know or who have experienced it?” Woodruff said in the release. “We’re harnessing the power of word of mouth referrals and leveraging the power of the web to help parents find the best memory-making experiences for their kids.” Sweeney said the pair began working on the site last summer and launched it in early February. There are currently more than 400 unique programs listed on the site right now. The goal is to have every camp program in the Cincinnati area available on the site with details.

Teams aiming high on Campbell tracks By James Weber

Highlands High School’s Joy Kappesser pulls ahead as she won a heat in the girls 100 hurdles April 4 in Florence.JOSEPH FUQUA II/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER


By Adam Turer

Few teams entered the 2014 season with more momentum or higher expectations than Highlands High School’s girls track and field team. The Bluebirds tied for seventh place in the state last season and return the entire roster, along with some exciting new additions. Molly Mearns broke two individual school records in distance events and was a member – along with Lauren Ossege, Sydney Ossege, and Kelsey Etherton – of the team’s school record setting 4x800 relay team. This year, the distance runners have more help. “What it takes is a balanced team,” said third-year head coach Brian Alessandro. “The last few years, we have relied heavily on our distance runners to score points. Now, we have a solid group of athletes to score points in all of the events at state.” The field events are bolstered by Ryle transfer Mikayla Reichert. Already this season she has broken a school discus record that stood for 35 years. In the Bluebirds’ first outdoor meet of the season, she broke the record that was set in 1979 and established herself as one of the top throwers in Class 2A. Junior Hannah Schenck will also be counted on to score points in field events, after placing fourth in 2A in the triple jump and sixth in the long jump as a sophomore.

With so many athletes who competed and placed at state last season, the Bluebirds have a better idea of what to expect in the biggest meets of the season. The mental preparation and experience is just as critical as the physical preparation. “The experience is crucial. I think the most important thing is that they are able to handle some pressure and stress more than a younger team,” said Ales-

sandro. “I also think the experience of prior state meets will be a huge factor in their competing without as much stress.” The program is still young and still relies on several middle schoolers to contribute. The biggest difference in with this year’s group is the leadership that comes from another year of state tournament experience. The Bluebirds are building a state title contender, not just this year, but for years to come. “Every day at practice, our entire team trains together, grades six through 12,” said Alessandro. “The older girls lead by example, and make sure our tradition continues when they leave. With about 50 middle school runners, that’s important.” The anticipation for this season has been building for the past three years. When Alessandro, also the Bluebirds’ cross country coach, took over the girls track and field program, he began developing young talent. Those young runners and field athletes are now in high school and already have the postseason experience of experienced high school upperclassmen. The program is ready to break through and capitalize on this momentum in the next year or two. “We have been building our middle school program since I took over the team, and they are now in high school,” said Alessandro. “We are now ready to contend for the state title in May.”

CAMPBELL COUNTY — Here is a look at some of the track teams in Campbell County based on information from head coaches. Bellevue boys and girls The Tigers are coached by Sarah Graff, who enters her third year. The boys team is paced by Alec Hazeres, Bryson Combs and Tyler Noonchester. Courtney Schmits and Kira Ross pace the girls team. Graff said the Tigers are a young team with potential. Bishop Brossart Chris Davis returns for his third season as head coach. He led the Mustangs to a runnerup finish in the 1A regional, falling by two points to St. Henry. The team’s goals this year are to win the conference and regional titles and finish top four at state. Senior Michael Caldwell, who will run for Northern Kentucky University, has three school records this year and possesses the top time in the state in the 1,600. Last year at state, he was second individually in the 800 and third in the 1,600. Drew Berkemeyer is the team’s top point scorer and is near the school record in the 300 hurdles. He is also the team’s top jumper. Robby Twehues is the team’s top thrower and ranked second in the state in the discus. The 4x800 relay team has won the state title two of the past three seasons and will look to add another crown this spring. Brossart didn’t graduate anyone from last year’s foursome.

Nicole Goderwis is a returning state champion in 1A, having won the 400 last season. She is the lone returning runner on the state champion 4x400 relay team. Campbell County boys/ girls The Camels were second in the NKAC meet and fifth in the region last year. The Camels have nine starters returning in Doug Carson, Mark Chaplin, Ian Franzen, Derek Groneck, Andrew Hyden, Kevin Lackey, Matt Mayer, Ben See and Devon Strange. See specializes in hurdles and pole vault. Chaplin, also a cross country standout, specializes in the 3,200. Strange is the team’s top sprinter. Hyden is the team’s top jumper and Carson the best thrower. Head coach Michael Stevens likes his team’s senior leadership and overall numbers as he hopes the Camels can challenge for their first conference championship since 2004. Campbell hosts the annual Donnie Carnes Memorial Meet April 12 at its new track at the high school. Returning starters for the girls team going into the season are Jennah Flairty, Brooke Buckler, Rebecca Cline, Meredith Donoghue, Abby Vandergriff and Kaylee Johnson. Flairty is closing in on the school record in the 3,200. Buckler and Cline are likely to battle each other for the school records in the two hurdles events. They were 1-2 in the regional meet last year, with Buckler winning. “We have an extremely hard working group of young See TRACKS, Page A7

Brief overview of state court system Most people have very little experience with Kentucky’s Court System unless they are called as jurors. I thought it may be helpful in this column to do an article explaining the structure of the Kentucky court system. There are four different levels of courts in Kentucky. The two trial court levels are the District Court and the Circuit Court which includes Family Court. The other two levels, the Kentucky Court of Appeals and the Kentucky Supreme Court, are for cases that are appealed. Below I will briefly overview each of these courts.

District Court

District Court is where most people enter the court system for the first time. District Court handles misdemeanors, violations, traffic cases, juvenile cases, civil cases under $5,000, small claims court

cases and probate matters among other things. District Court judges are elected for four-year terms. Six Steven J. member juries Franzen are used in District Court. COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST A unanimous COLUMNIST decision is needed to render a verdict in criminal cases, while civil cases require a five-sixths majority. The County Attorney’s office prosecutes criminal, traffic and juvenile cases in District Court.

Circuit Court

Circuit Court has jurisdiction over all felony cases, civil cases of more than $5,000, divorce and custody cases, appeals from District Court and contested probate cases.

Judges for Circuit Court serve eight-year terms. Circuit Court juries consist of 12 members and criminal trial verdicts must be unanimous, but civil trials only require a threefourths majority. Felony criminal trials in the Circuit Court are prosecuted by the Commonwealth Attorney’s office.

Family Court

Family Courts only exist in certain counties throughout Kentucky, including Campbell County. The Family Court is considered part of the Circuit Court and deals with some of the matters normally handled in the District Court and also some of the matters normally handled in the regular Circuit Court. Family Courts handle divorce, child custody, visitation, child support, adoption, termination of parental rights, domestic violence, paternity and

juvenile matters such as dependency, abuse, neglect and status offenses such as truancy and runaways.

Court of Appeals

The Court of Appeals reviews cases that have already been tried in a lower court, such as District or Circuit Court. There are 14 judges on this court and they are divided into panels of no more than three judges. Two appeals judges are elected from each appellate district for terms of eight years.

Supreme Court

The Supreme Court of Kentucky is the court of last resort and the final interpreter of state law. It consists of seven justices who are elected from the seven appellate districts and serve eight-year terms. The Supreme Court is composed of a chief justice and six

Seniors have valuable insights Last year the Administration on Aging’s theme for Older Americans Month of May was: Unleash the Power of Age. As an advocate for seniors, I believe that we should be celebrating the power of age every day, all year round. The question becomes, though, how to best unleash that power? How can we tap into the rich life experiences, leadership skills and insights of the older residents in our community, to make Northern Kentucky a better place to live? I’d answer that question by saying that the opportunity to “unleash that power” is before us right now – the myNKY campaign. Seniors have the wisdom and experiences to help guide the vision of tomorrow for Northern Kentucky. myNKY, a six-month community visioning campaign currently underway focused on engaging residents, educators, politicians, and businesses to help determine the priorities for Northern Kentucky’s next five-year strategic plan. I learned about the myNKY when I was contacted by a representative from the campaign and asked to share information at the 10 Senior Activity Centers operated by Senior Services of

Northern Kentucky. Seniors are the ‘experienced” population of Northern Kentucky, and can Tricia provide experWatts tise, wisdom and life-long COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST knowledge to COLUMNIST this visioning process. Recently my almost-80year-old mother came to live with me. After years of living three hours apart, it is a delight to talk with her each night and hug her each morning. But her needs and wants for this community are drastically different than mine. She is concerned about how she will get to doctor’s appointments, if her medication costs will go up and what kinds of activities are available for older adults in the community. Jobs and economic growth are important of course, but that’s not what is on her mind day-in and day-out. Many seniors share the concerns of health, transportation and meeting daily needs. Their perspective is quit different than mine, yet seniors provide such valuable insights as we plan for our future – our aging future.

I encourage everyone, but especially seniors in Northern Kentucky, to make your voice heard by visiting, the online hub for collecting community input. The website features a variety of ways for you to share your thoughts and feelings about our future including an interactive prioritization game where you can show how you’d invest a million virtual dollars in community priorities like housing and public transportation, and there are a variety of polls and challenge questions on topics that change each week. If you don’t have access to the internet, call 859-757-0518 and provide your opinions over the phone or visit any of Senior Services of Northern Kentuck-

Your calories burned may be more or less depending on your weight and the intensity and effort you put into the action. » 20 minutes vacuuming – 56 calories » 30 minutes folding laundry – 75 calories » 30 minutes dusting – 80 calories » 20 minutes washing the car – 102 calories » 30 minutes mopping – 153 calories » 60 minutes gardening –

So don’t think of spring cleaning as only a chance to freshen and improve your home and lawn, but a chance to rejuvenate your body. Set a goal for yourself this spring to improve both your body and your home. Diane Mason is county extension agent for family and consumer sciences at the Boone County Cooperative Extension Service.

Spring cleaning good for body and home Many of us would love to work more physical activity into our schedules, but between responsibilities at work and home it can be hard to squeeze it in. The 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week most health and wellness experts recommend may seem impossible. Fortunately, spring is here. The longer days and warmer weather encourage more outdoor physical activity. You may find you can fit a walk into your schedule most days of the week. However, if you are concerned about getting all of your physical activity in, spring cleaning may be an answer. Moving furniture to thorough-

other justices that collectively as a panel review decisions of lower courts. Rulings that impose the death sentence, life imprisonment, or 20 years or more imprisonment automatically go to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court also can discipline lawyers and has authority in determining the rules of practice and procedure for the entire court system. I hope this information is interesting and helpful.

Gala madness helps Children’s Advocacy Center

n enthusiastic crowd raised $95,000 to help children of abuse at Masquerade Madness, March 1. More than 320 supporters of the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center gathered at the Airport Marriott to find themselves immediately immersed

in Venetian opulence. A cocktail reception started the evening leading to an Italianthemed dinner followed by dancing to the music of The Chuck Taylors. The newly themed annual gala (formerly the Ghoulish Gala) was an explosion of glamour and allure with most guests

adorning masks surrounded by gold and silver accents, themed centerpieces by Timothy’s Florals, performances by ballerinas of Expressions Dance Theatre, and green screen photography by Studio 66 for guests to have their portrait taken in the famed Italian city upon arrival.

Emcee Ed Hartman led a special live auction of wind chimes created by Northern Kentucky high school art students and an elaborate copper and brass water feature created by students at Boone County Area Technology Center. A new video for the children’s advocacy center was shown, and a

new fundraising and awareness campaign was announced beginning this month to coincide with national Child Abuse Prevention month. Last year, the NKYCAC served nearly 750 children in a coordinated response to child abuse. It is the only Children’s Advocacy Center in

Northern Kentucky and recognized as a Center of Excellence by the National Children’s Alliance. For more information about the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center, visit or call 859-442-3200.

APRIL 10, 2014 • CCF RECORDER • B3

Sharing legend of the hot cross bun I may be jinxing myself, but I think we’ve finally transitioned into spring. The last few days have convinced me, and in our little patch of woods, I’m seeing true harbingers: watercress in our spring fed pool and trilliums, bloodroot, anemones and spring beauties all poking up through the leaves. The dandelions and Rita wild onions Heikenfeld are all over RITA’S KITCHEN the place. Both nutritious wild edibles. Meanwhile, we’re gearing up for Easter. One of my favorite yeast buns to make is hot cross buns. Now these aren’t extremely sweet, like a sweet roll (they’re a bun, remember), but just sweet enough to really enjoy with a cup of tea or glass of milk. Legend has it that if you make yeasted hot cross buns for Good Friday and hang one up in the kitchen, you’ll have success with anything you make with yeast all year ‘round. That won’t be happening at my house! Let the kids help Granddaughter Eva loved making the cross decoration. You can also simply use the icing as a glaze over the whole bun.


1 pkg. (1/4 oz.) active dry yeast, regular or rapid rise 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 cup sugar, divided 1 cup warm milk (110° -115°) 1/4 cup softened butter Couple dashes salt 1/2 to 1 cup raisins 1 large egg, room

temperature 3-1/2 to 3-3/4 cups allpurpose flour Preheat oven to 375. In mixer bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 tablespoon sugar in warm milk. Let stand for 5 minutes. It will foam up. Add butter, raisins, egg, salt and remaining sugar; beat until smooth. On low speed, pour in enough flour to form soft dough - I used 3-1/2 cups. Turn onto very lightly floured surface (not too much flour or buns will be tough); knead until smooth like a baby’s bottom, about 5 minutes. I used the dough hook so avoided hand kneading and extra flour. Place in sprayed or buttered bowl, turning once to coat top. Bless dough! Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, 1 hour or more. Stick a finger in gently, if indentation remains, you’re good to go; if it springs back, it needs to raise more. Punch dough down. Divide into 12 portions. Shape into balls. Place in sprayed or buttered 13x9 pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden. Mine were done at 25 minutes.


Whisk together: 2 cups confectioner’s sugar 1 tablespoon vanilla 4 tablespoons water or more if needed. Make a cross shape on each bun.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen:

Raising in frig: As an experiment, I divided dough in half and let half raise at room temperature and half in frig, covered, overnight. The

dough from the frig took longer to raise, but both batches came out great.

Hawaiian roll clone

Leave out raisins and icing and you have a roll that, to me, tastes like store-bought Hawaiian rolls. The crust is not as soft, but the sweet flavor is there!

Yeast basics

Back in the old days yeast came in the form of moist little cakes and had to be refrigerated. Now we can buy dry yeast in the store. It comes in many forms, from regular yeast to rapid rise to bread machine yeast. All easy to use!

Is it fresh?

To make sure your yeast can still leaven, add a little to some warm water with a pinch of sugar. It should foam up within minutes. If not, toss it. Yeast kept in freezer stays fresh longer.

Barrington honors its donors at brunch The Barrington of Fort Thomas invites donors to the Gifts for Grace program to its Champagne Brunch events, hosted 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. the final Sunday of each month. For two years Barrington has sponsored the Gifts for Grace toy drive, honoring the memory of 5-year-old Grace Elizabeth Inyart. Grace was involved in a car accident in August 2012 that left her without the ability to walk or talk. Grace spent her fifth birthday in the hospital after intensive therapy, made it home with her family just before Thanksgiving. Grace acquired pneumonia, however, and due to complications died at midnight Dec. 2, 2012. Staff at the Barrington sought to make something positive out of a tragedy and organized a toy drive for needy children.

SERVICE TIME Sunday, 10:45 a.m.

Many local businesses and individuals joined in support of Gifts for Grace, including Fort Thomas Florist, the Law Offices of Fessler, Schneider and Grimme, along with other residents and families of the Barrington who made the project a success within a short time. “There are two of young boys that especially touched our hearts,” said Carespring registered nurse Debbie Berling, who was the aunt of Grace Inyart. “Evan Lebrecht and Ean Hart both made heartfelt donations. The boys celebrated birthdays on the same day and because of Grace’s story, all of the toys from their party in 2012 were donated to Gifts from Grace. They again donated their presents in 2013. “This is a true selfless act. We want to show our appreciation to the special and awesome support that people have shown to a little girl whose life was cut short but has affected many others in her short life. We are not able to meet each person who contributed, but want to take this time to thank everyone for their support and participation with Gifts from Grace.” RSVPs are required by calling 859-572-0667. The Barrington of Fort Thomas is an independent-living community at 940 Highland Ave.

April is child abuse prevention month By Stephanie Salmons

FLORENCE — Northern Kentucky leaders and advocates, students and residents gathered at Tom Gill Chevrolet April 1 for the Family Nurturing Center’s Blue Ribbon Child Abuse Awareness Ceremony, marking the start of National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Officials from Boone, Kenton, Campbell and Grant counties addressed the audience before featured speakers Larry Gildea and Dan Horn took the podium. Gildea’s son, Doug, was sexually abused as a child by a neighbor in the 1970s. Never recovering from the incident, Doug committed suicide in 1992. The Cincinnati family told their story in a Cincinnati Enquirer article by reporter Dan Horn last November. “You’re wondering,

someone my age wouldn’t know anything about child abuse,” Gildea began. “Sixty-two years ago or thereabouts, myself, my brother and several other altar boys were molested by our parish priest.” He and his brother survived. They married. They raised families. “And my point is, most of the children who were abused become productive members of society,” Gildea said. “Most. But not all.” He relayed the story of his son, sexually molested by a neighbor at the age of 5. Gildea urged parents not to put their children in situations they can’t control and to ask questions. “As society, it is our responsibility to bring awareness to child abuse,” Gildea said. “April, as you know, has been dedicated child abuse (prevention)

month, and that’s a good thing, but there are 11 other months we need to concern ourselves with also.” Horn said during his address the attention span of the media is short, cov-

ering a story and moving on. “That’s not a great part of our business, but it is a part of it,” he said. “We rarely get a chance to really dig into a story and

tell what happens long after that story fades away.” Victims and families, he said, aren’t eager to talk about the experience and no one should feel obligated to tell their stories just because it happened to them. “The trouble is, survivors are the ones who can tell that story best,” Horn said. “Without them, all people know about child abuse is what they see on TV and in the headlines ... and that’s what made Larry’s call so extraordinary. He wanted to talk about it. He wanted to tell Doug’s story. He said it’s important people understand how suffering doesn’t end after the abuse. It doesn’t end when the guy goes to prison. And I agreed. I said that’s not a story we’ve told before and I agreed to tell it.” Following the ceremony, the Gildea family and Horn were among those recognized by the Family

Toyota names outstanding women of Northern Kentucky Toyota, the lead sponsor of the Outstanding Women of Northern Kentucky awards, has named the 2014 honorees. The annual awards celebrate women who have demonstrated leadership in their home, profession, or community. Prior to 2007, The Kentucky Post was lead sponsor of the luncheon program since presenting the first group of honorees. In 2014, the Outstanding Women award celebrates 30 years of honoring nearly 150 women for distinguished service in their professions or to the Northern Kentucky community and who exhibit qualities of personal integrity, perseverance, and leadership. The 2014 honorees are: » Cindy Carris » Jeanne Schroer » Debbie Simpson » Jeanne-Marie Tapke, PhD » Emerging Leader – Crystal Gibson » Special 30th Anniver-

sary Celebration Award – Bennie Doggett » The Henrietta Cleveland Inspiring Carroll Women Award – Christina Rust » New award this year – The Helen Carroll Champion of Education Award – Polly Page Helen Carroll, Toyota’s community relations manager, was instrumental in the continuation of this awards program after the Kentucky Post ended its sponsorship in 2006. Since then, more than 40 women’s stories have been told and another 18 have received scholarships. The awards committee named this award in her honor as she is viewed as a true Champion of Education, as is the first recipient, Polly Page, executive director, Northern Kentucky Education Council.

Additionally the awards are co-sponsored by Northern Kentucky University, Thomas More College and Gateway Community and Technical College. Each year, Toyota and the three colleges fund one $2,000 scholarship for each school. These scholarships will be designated for a deserving female college student who exhibits the same qualities of the Outstanding Women honorees.

Nurturing Center. Horn received a framed poster thanking him for being a partner in prevention for Child Abuse Prevention Month. “It’s just amazing to see how many people are here from all walks of life and all different professions,” Family Nurturing Center executive director Jane Herms said following the ceremony. “And it’s really, I think, a testament to the community in recognition that child abuse can’t be solved by one organization or one industry or one leader. It really takes all of us working together. It’s really heartening to see so many people come out and make the time and take the stance but it really takes moving forward from today with action.”
