BLUEBIRDS WIN A6 Highlands triumphs on diamond


Highlands among best high schools in U.S. By Stephanie Salmons and Chris Mayhew,

Northern Kentucky has two high schools listed by U.S. News & World Report as being among the best in the U.S. Highlands High School in Fort Thomas and Beechwood High School in Fort Mitchell both made the top 500 of the 2014 U.S. News & World Report best high schools rankings analyzing 19,400 public high schools. Highlands ranked 338 in the nation, according to the U.S. News & World Report, and

Women learn defense tactics By Amy Scalf

COLD SPRING — The city’s police officers have been offering a different kind of special event at DeVanna’s on the Lake. Instead of a wedding, class reunion or anniversary party, the special event venue at 4210 Alexandria Pike has been the site of a free women’s self-defense training course. Cold Spring Police officers Scott Hildebrand and Andy Hyett, along with clerk April Robinson, have presented the Rape Aggression Defense, or RAD, training course for women 13 and older. The course targets women only, to teach them realistic self-defense tactics ranging from awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance up to basic hands-on defense. “The biggest thing is to be more aware of your surroundings,” said Robinson. “The more aware you are, the more you can prevent something from happening. Prevention is important.” The 12-hour course is broken into four three-hour sessions; the last one was Tuesday, but more classes will be scheduled based on interest from residents. JoAnn Cornett of Cold Spring had several reasons for wanting to join the class. “I have five granddaughters,

Beechwood ranked 461 in the U.S. Additionally, Highlands ranked highest of any Kentucky school in the Washington Post’s 2014 list of the 1,900 “America’s Most Challenging High Schools” with a U.S. rank of 143. Beechwood ranked 211 in the U.S. in the same rankings released April 8. “Both of these distinctions are a direct result of the fact that all students in Fort Thomas are exposed to a rigorous curriculum which is focused on skills which are essential for success in the 21st century global economy,” said Gene Kirchner, super-

FORT THOMAS — Instead of keeping one extra pair of eyeglasses on his workbench, Edgar “Nick” Cleves Jr. has boxes filled with 1,000 spare pairs he’s fixed for charity. Cleves, 86, has repaired 56,000 pairs of glasses out of his home over the past 21 years for people in other countries as part of his work for Campbell County’s Lions Club. The 1,000 pair of eyeglasses in his garage have been cleaned and repaired, and are ready for donating to people in countries with limited access to eye doctors and glasses. Cleves was recognized by the club at a dinner at Barleycorn’s in Cold Spring Tuesday, April 22, for his work fixing eyeglasses and to celebrate his 48th year of membership in the club. Boxes of broken eyeglasses and parts donated by eye doctors in Campbell County and from stores, including WalMart in Alexandria, are collected by the Lions Club and brought to Cleves’ garage. “It used to be all on the dining room table,” he said. He repairs single, bifocal and trifocal lenses. “I line them up and replace temple and nose pieces,” Cleves said. Lining up glasses is the process of making sure each pair will rest evenly on a person’s face or when sitting on a table. The repaired eyeglasses are taken by doctors and medical

results,” he said. “It is truly amazing the achievement level that our students are able to attain year after year.” According to Hutton, this is the sixth or seven year for the district to rank on the list. “We have a dedicated faculty,” Hutton said, when asked what sets the district apart from others. “They have a deep commitment to implement strong curriculum. Expectations are very high at Beechwood. We have a very caring faculty and the students know that they can depend on the

intendent of Fort Thomas Independent Schools. The high school has a policy of open access to Advanced Placement courses for all students, Kirchner said. “We truly have a culture of high expectations for all,” he said. Highlands has a long history

of being included on both the U.S. News & World Report and Washington Post’s lists of America’s best high schools, Kirchner said. “We are very pleased that Highlands High School has once again been recognized as one of America’s very best high schools. This is a credit to our students, staff and community,” Kirchner said. Beechwood superintendent Steve Hutton said the district is “very happy” with the ranking and proud they were able to be awarded the gold medal. “For such a small school, our students provide some very big

FORT THOMAS — On South Ft. Thomas Avenue, on the sidewalk in front of Sarah Anne Photography, a group of little girls were clutching colorful balloons. On each balloon was written an inspirational message such as “Dream Big” and “Never Give Up.” The plan was to hand off the balloons to passing pedestrians. They were part of a campaign called “You Make Me Smile” hosted by Sarah Anne Photography and Mary Helen Clothing. The local businesses joined together to promote the Confidence Coalition, a national movement whose goal is to encourage women and girls to stand up to peer pressure and media stereotypes. About 20 girls from the Tristate attended the campaign on March 22. They all had a chance to try on different dresses designed by Mary Helen and pose for a free photograph. “I think it’s a great idea to encourage the girls to be confident to be who they are,” said Kim Guy, who came with her daughter from Anderson Township. “Having high confidence as a young girl is just wonderful,” said photographer Sarah Richardson. “So anything that I can do to help and promote self esteem in young girls today is great.” “We want to let the girls be themselves,” said Mary Boeddeker, owner of Mary Helen Clothing. An important part of that, she said, is age-appropriate clothing. “Things that little girls want to wear that still make them look like little girls.” “Every kid is different,” she said. “When I was younger, I didn’t wear jeans until I was 8.” She offered this suggestion for parents: “If they’re not going to wear it, don’t buy it.” Some of the girls decided to carry the balloons with them. “We’re going to hand the balloon to someone and hopefully put a smile on their face,” said Joanna Eyer of Cincinnati. Asked how the experience made her feel, 7-year-old Emily Heilman of Fort Thomas answered “Like I’m part of the world.”

New Cath pitcher Grant Moeves winds up to deliver to Highlands.


FT. THOMAS — Few things in sports feel better than snapping a long losing streak. That sense of relief and renewed momentum is even more powerful when the victory comes in dominating fashion. Highlands High School’s softball team endured a sevengame losing streak, which included losses to teams from Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana. Then, they snapped out of it emphatically, with a 10-run win over Scott April 23. “It was great for the girls. We were on a stretch of playing very competitive teams from all over the Tristate. When we made the schedule, we knew that week or so was going to be very challenging,” head coach Rob Coffey said. “We believe in challenging the girls in the regular season to prepare them for the post season. Mentally, it started to wear on us a little, but the girls have done a great job with it.” The Bluebirds have been without starting pitcher Bailey Spencer, who should be returning soon from a leg injury. In her absence, junior Payton Leighty and sophomore Miranda Mason have stepped up. The coaching staff wants to ease Spencer back into the rotation, which will be a challenge. The sophomore is a fierce competitor who wants the ball in her hand every time out. Her teammates’ reliability will help with Spencer’s transition. “Payton has been unbelievable stepping up and filling the pitching role. She has been a workhorse for us when we needed her,” said Coffey. “She is a kid that is truly there for the benefit of the team.” Leighty had shifted her focus to playing outfield and did not expect to pitch much, if at all, this season. Mason was a project who was being developed to eventually share innings, but was thrust into a bigger role earlier than expected. Both pitchers have acquitted themselves nicely.







» After the success of this past high school basketball season’s impromptu boys’ doubleheader at The Bank of Kentucky Center, the arena’s marketing and booking manager, Matt Merchant, said he is hopeful to land some regular-season games in the 2014-15 season. Merchant said he is still looking to complete deals for a possible Friday night doubleheader in January and another in February. “We are confident we can make something work, but nothing has been confirmed yet,” said Merchant. This past season, Newport Central Catholic played Holmes and Covington Catholic faced Dixie Heights in a doubleheader on Feb.14. Those games came about when NewCath sought to move its game with Holmes from its own gym because it

wouldn’t be big enough to accommodate the expected huge crowd, and when it began discussions with BOKC officials about moving the game there the idea was floated to add that night’s schedule Dixie at CovCath game to the docket. A huge crowd attended that night. “After the success of last year, we definitely want to try and establish an annual marquee high school basketball doubleheader again,” said Merchant. “We understand that games like this often sell out or come close to selling out at the high school, so we enjoy giving everyone that wants to come out and see these great teams an opportunity to do so, while giving the teams participating in the games a chance to earn more money for their schools than they would if they hosted that game at their gym. It is also an opportunity of a lifetime for some of the players to play in a Division I facility like The Bank of Kentucky Center. At the end

of the day we want to make The Bank of Kentucky Center, ‘Northern Kentucky’s Arena.’”

» Thomas More College sophomore shortstop Ana Walter and sophomore pitcher Mamee Salzer (Erlanger/St. Henry) swept the Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC) softball weekly awards. Walter hit .632 (12-of-19) last week to lead the first-place Saints to a 5-1 record against PAC opponents, finishing the six-game stretch with three home runs, one double, six runs batted in and nine runs scored. She totaled a 1.158 slugging percentage, a .682 on-base percent-

age and was two-for-two in stolen base attempts Salzer led the Saints in the circle last week, going 2-0 with a pair of shutouts, including a no-hitter, in three league starts. She logged 16 innings and surrendered just one earned run to post a 0.44 earned run average, while limiting opposing hitters to just seven hits and a .137 average. Salzer’s nohitter came in the Saints’ 11-0 (5 inn.) victory over second-place Geneva College on Saturday.

“Miranda has pitched well in all her outings and has taken advantage of each opportunity she has been given,” said Coffey. “She works extremely hard on her skill and has improved tremendously over the last year.” An even bigger pleasant surprise for the Bluebirds has been seventhgrader Rachel Gabbard. Just12 years old, Gabbard has fit right in with her varsity teammates and against varsity competition. She earned the starting job at second base in the preseason and has held her own throughout the team’s first 20 games. “She is a good infielder and hitter, but what makes her special is her maturity level. She does not get fazed by much. To her, it’s a softball game,” said Coffey. “She doesn’t care who you are or how old you are. She’s going to play and try and beat you. That’s a pretty unique attribute for a kid her age. The girls tease her saying, ‘You’re only12! Not even a teen-ager yet!’ She does not approach the game like she is 12. She is a gamer and a name to remember.” Despite the losses piling up on top of one another from April 12 through April 22, the Bluebirds

never panicked. They understood that they would be able to weather the adversity and that they had time to get back on track. “The girls stepped up and never complained once. They felt, regardless of what we were going through, we had our chances to win each game,” said Coffey. “Getting a win and seeing the bats wake up was definitely a shot in the arm.” Now that the long losing streak is behind them, the Bluebirds are focused on preparing to play their best softball of the season in the month of May. Spencer’s return will be a boost. A second straight trip to the regional tournament is one goal; winning the Ninth Region is the bigger goal. “ We are talented and can compete with anyone in the Ninth on a given day, but we need to con-

tinue to have the girls perform their roles and execute like they know how,” said Coffey. “If we can get healthy, execute, get our hitting back online and stay focused on our goals, we feel we can make a run for the Ninth Region.”

Grandson remembers family’s Derby entrant

Not much remains of the Twin Oak race horse farms owned by Marvin and Alan Gaines on Old Lexington Pike in Walton. The house the farm manager called home is still there and one small building in the old pasture, but nothing more. But on a cold winter’s night in 1957 the farm was abuzz with the impending birth of a colt. Earnest Price, farm manager, and his teenaged grandson Alvin “Shorty” Price, were anxiously awaiting the moment when they could assist the mare in the foaling of her colt. The pair trudged across snow covered ground between the small building and the nearby barn through the night until Bally Ache was born. The colt, sired by the Irish import Bally-

dam out of Celestial Blue, was special from the night of his birth. Unsuspecting passers-by driving north or south on the Marv old highway Price watched as the COMMUNITY young colt RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST grazed in the white fencedin pasture, never too far from his mother’s watchful eyes. On visits to Walton other grandchildren of Earnest Price ventured near the fence to watch the bay stallion dash from one end of the pasture to the other. No one was aware the horse’s great-great-grandfather was arguably one of the greatest

race horses in history, Man O War, winner of 20 races in 21 outings, including the Preakness and the Belmont in 1920. A local newspaper featured a photograph of Alan Gaines and his wife Anna Pearl with the colt soon after his birth. A sign along the old two-lane highway proudly proclaimed the name of the farm and “home of Bally Ache.” As a yearling the horse, described as a blocky short backed colt with a short, choppy stride, was sold as part of a two horse transaction for $5,000 to Leonard Fruchtman, a steel company executive from Toledo who had a small string of horses racing under his Edgehill Farm colors. Trained by Homer “Jimmy” Pitt, as a two-year-old, Bally Ache had an outstanding year of

FALLS ARE LEADING CAUSE OF INJURY In 2004, my aunt, who was 82 and diabetic, dropped a used blood test strip in her kitchen. A couple days later, she accidentally stepped on it, slipped and fell. The fall broke her hip. She was taken to the hospital, where she died within a week. Falls are the leading cause of injury for those over 65 years old. One-third of all adults aged 65 and older fall each year, accordCharles ing to the CenBrewer ters for DisCOMMUNITY ease Control RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST and Prevention. Falls account for almost all cases of hip fractures and traumatic brain injuries among seniors. Many seniors injured in falls require long-term care and may never fully recover. In 2012 (the latest year numbers are available), 716 seniors in the eight counties of Northern Kentucky had serious falls that caused injuries. More than half had to be admitted to skilled nursing facilities for rehabilitation. But while falls are common,

they are not inevitable. Simple exercise, and changes in lifestyle and the home, can keep seniors safe and upright. One of the most important is exercise. Daily walking is an excellent way to strengthen bones and keep joints limber. Tai chi also is recommended for seniors. The gentle martialarts-like moves help strength, balance, coordination and flexibility. Terri Doll Butler of Burlington teaches tai chi weekly at the Florence and Edgewood senior centers, and the R.C. Durr YMCA. “Tai chi improves balance

through movement” Butler says. “We focus on balance.” There are several other ways that seniors can avoid falls. The Mayo Clinic offers these tips: » See your doctor. Have him review all the medications you take, including over-thecounter drugs. Drug interactions can cause dizziness or weakness. Have your eyesight and hearing checked. » Wear sensible shoes. » Remove or secure carpets or floor rugs. Use nonslip mats in your bathtub or shower. » Clean up. Cluttered rooms, electrical cords, boxes, and piles of newspapers or books can be a hazard to an unsteady senior. May is Older Americans Month, and the theme for 2014 is keeping seniors safe at home. More information about seniors and falls – and how you can encourage Congress to allocate more money for falls prevention programs – can be found at prove-health/falls-prevention/. Charles Brewer is communications director for Senior Services of Northern Kentucky. He also is officially a senior citizen: he was born in 1952. You can reach Charles at

racing. Of his 16 starts, he won five stakes races, set a new track record at Jamaica Racetrack for five furlongs, and finished out of the money just once. He ended the year ranked second in earnings. In her book “American Classic Pedigrees (1914-2002),” author Avalyn Hunter wrote that Bally Ache was “a crowd favorite” who “won hearts by his sheer determination.” The horse knew only one way to race – run as fast as he could for as long as he could. At age three, Bally Ache was even more impressive, winning the Flamingo Stakes and Florida Derby, which made him eligible for the Kentucky Derby. In the Run for the Roses, Venetian Way, already beaten four times by Bally Ache, won the race.

Despite Bally Ache’s second place finish, the Turfland racing syndicate bought the colt for what Sports Illustrated magazine described as the “staggering price of $1,250,000.” Bally Ache promptly went on to win the 84th running of the Preakness Stakes by four lengths. Entered in the Belmont, he came up lame on the eve of the race and had to be withdrawn. After returning to racing, in his fourth outing he suffered a career ending ankle injury. Scheduled to stand at stud for his owners, Bally Ache developed an intestinal ailment that led to his death on Oct. 28, 1960. He was buried at Bosque Bonita Farm in Versailles. Marv Price is the grandson of farm manager Earnest Price.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Remember to vote on May 20

On Tuesday May 20, Democrats in all of Kentucky’s 120 counties will be selecting the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate. There are four candidates competing for the Democratic nomination including Alison Lundergan Grimes of Lexington. The other candidates competing for the Democratic Senate nomination are Burrel Charles Farnsley, Gregory Brent Leichty and Tom Rechtenwald all of Louisville. As chairs of the Democratic Executive Committees of Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties, we urge the over 108,000 Democrats in the metro N.Ky. counties to cast their vote in the May 2014 Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate. Northern Kentucky Democrats can make a difference in the Kentucky U.S. Senate primary and ultimately with ending deadlock in Washington, D.C. During the 2010 Democratic U.S. Senate primary only 548,839 eligible Democrats voted in all of Kentucky’s 120 counties. If only half of metro N.Ky.’s Democrats vote in the U.S. Senate primary in 2014, it would account for10 percent of the Democratic turnout statewide.

Crimes in state are classified into classes

Recently, a reader asked about what types and classes of crime exist. A crime is an unlawful act that is punished by the commonwealth. Crimes are divided into three types: felonies, misdemeanors and violations. A crime is placed into that type based on the severity. Similarly, crimes of each type are further divided into classes. Below I will briefly overview each of the types and related classes of crime.


Violations are the least serious crimes a person can be charged with. People charged with violations are usually cited for traffic violations like speeding, improper lane usage and careless driving. There are no


classes of violations and they are heard in District Court. The maximum penalty for a violation is $250 plus court costs. Our office handles approximately 15,000 violations each year.


Misdemeanors are divided into two classes (A and B) and are heard in District Court. Class A misdemeanors are the most prevalent and most serious. Class A misdemeanors include drug paraphernalia, assault and bad checks under



A publication of

$500. Also, serious traffic offenses – for example, DUI, driving on suspended license – can be listed as Class A misdemeanors. Class A misdemeanors are crimes with a maximum sentence of no more than one year in jail and a $500 fine plus court cost. The difference between Class A and Class B misdemeanors is that the maximum punishment is limited to 90 days jail for Class B misdemeanors. Our office handles approximately 5,000 misdemeanors each year.


Felonies are the most serious criminal offenses and each carry a maximum penalty greater than one year in prison. An easy way to distinguish a felony from a misdemeanor is to look at the penalty for the offense. If the

penalty is for more than one year imprisonment, the offense is a felony. If the penalty is less than one year imprisonment, then it is a misdemeanor. In Kentucky, felonies are divided into four classes (A, B, C and D). Felony charges include murder, assault with serious injuries, armed robbery and grand larceny. Commonly, felonies are brought against people charged with drug-related offenses and other theft offenses. All cases that involve at least one felony are decided in Circuit Court. Each class of felony is based on the potential penalty. For example, Class A felony imprisonment is 20 to 50 years, or life, whereas Class B is 10 to 20 years, Class C is 5 to 10 years, and Class D is 1 to 5 years. Generally, our office’s in-

volvement in felonies is limited to drafting the criminal complaint, search warrants and arrest warrants in certain cases. The commonwealth attorney’s office primarily prosecutes felonies. Once a person is charged with a crime, most commonly by the police, the prosecution of the accused is a step-by-step process that can often be long, complicated and confusing.

Eats for Cinco de Mayo, Derby Day There has sure been a lot of activity this week on our old country road. Between Percy the duck out for her usual morning stroll, neighbor Mike’s three rowdy roosters crowing and following me during my daily walk/ run, and the addition of our new flock of baby Rita chicks, Heikenfeld there’s RITA’S KITCHEN never a dull moment. To add to the excitement, Mark, one of the Caudill kids, brought me a “gift” of a tiny snapping turtle he found in his yard. It has now taken up residence in a window box complete with water and a flat rock for him to lounge on. I was not happy, however, to discover a baby garden snake slithering out of the manure pile when I was tossing manure into the wheelbarrow for the berry patch. I was actually glad to abandon that task to retreat to the kitchen to test recipes. We have two major celebrations coming up: Cinco de Mayo and Derby Day. You can celebrate both with these recipes.

Brown Hotel hot brown sandwich

The Louisville hot brown was first served at the Brown Hotel in Louisville in the 1930s. It is a famous sandwich espe-

cially around Derby Day, and we love it. I don’t make it often simply because it’s so rich, but it sure is good. I like the hotel’s current version of the recipe, which I’m sharing today. The hotel uses Texas toast since it adds a bit of sweetness to the sandwich and is easily cut into triangles, and the chef uses Pecorino instead of Parmesan. As for the pepper, I like Cayenne. I’ve made only slight variations in their recipe.


2 tablespoons unsalted butter 2 tablespoons flour 1-1/2 cups whole milk 1 cup white Cheddar cheese, shredded 1/4 cup Pecorino Romano cheese 1-1/2 to 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard Several dashes Tabasco sauce Salt and pepper to taste (either black or cayenne pepper)


4 slices thick bacon, cooked and crumbled 6 slices Texas toast or Ciabatta bread, thickly sliced and toasted 1/2 pound good quality roasted turkey breast, sliced fairly thick 1 large tomato, sliced fairly thick Melt butter over medium heat and add flour and cook, whisking constantly, for 3 minutes. Add milk and stir, bring to a boil and cook for1minute. Remove from heat and whisk in cheeses, mus-

tard, Tabasco, salt and pepper. Keep warm. Preheat broiler and in ovenproof dish, lay bread slices on bottom, and layer with turkey and tomato. Sprinkle with pepper and spoon cheese sauce on top. Place under broiler until brown and bubbly

and then top with bacon. Makes 6 sandwiches.

Tex Mex lasagna

Corn tortillas give this a Cinco de Mayo flavor. I like to serve this with bowls of sliced avocado, sour cream and extra Mexican cheese.

1 pound ground round or ground sirloin 14.5 oz. can petite diced tomatoes with juice, either regular or with chilies 4 oz. can diced green chilies, drained, your choice of mild or spicy 2 teaspoons chili

powder 2 teaspoons ground cumin 1 generous teaspoon minced garlic Salt and pepper to taste 2 large egg whites 2 cups small curd cottage cheese 4 (6-inch) corn tortillas cut into quarters Approx. 2 cups frozen corn, thawed completely 2 cups Mexican blend cheese plus extra for garnish Preheat oven 350. Cook meat in skillet until done. Add tomatoes, chilies, chili powder, cumin, garlic, salt and pepper. Stir until blended and set aside. Blend egg whites with cottage cheese and set aside. Spray a 9x13 pan. Cover bottom with 6 quartered tortillas. Layer corn, half of the meat mixture, half of the Mexican cheese, 5 quartered tortillas and all of the cottage cheese mixture. Spread rest of meat mixture on top along with rest of tortillas, and top with rest of cheese. Bake, uncovered, 3040 minutes.

Do homework before flipping home Home mortgage rates near record lows are prompting some people to consider buying foreclosed homes to either fix them up and flip them or to live in after buying at a bargain price. But, before you buy you need to do your homework to make sure you’re not getting a lot more than you expected. A Cincinnati area man writes me that his mother bought a house at a sheriff’s auction and got a good price for the home. She realized she would

have to spend some money fixing it up and did so by putting on a new roof and gutting Howard and remodAin eling the inHEY HOWARD! terior. But, he says, several months after buying the home and moving in she received a notice from the health department saying the septic system needed to be replaced. He writes,

“Upon calling them to find out what they meant, she found out that it meant “replaced,” and that notice was given in 2010 of the need to replace.” They were told the septic system could not be repaired. He said it had to be replaced by someone approved by the health department and the total cost would be from $15,000 to $20,000, “on top of all the application fees and permits.” He writes, “After exhausting all other possibilities, I asked what if she

home has become a nightmare.” Christy Wilson of Fairfield found herself in a similar, although not nearly as costly, predicament when she bought a house that had been foreclosed upon. Soon after moving in she received a bill for water and sewer charges from the prior owner. Then she checked with the county real estate department and found an unpaid delinquency as well. So how can you protect yourself? Attorney Mi-

chael Ganson says it’s important to always hire a lawyer when buying a foreclosed property. Not only will the attorney check to make sure there are no assessments on the home, but they’ll do a complete title search to assure the foreclosure was valid.

could just sell the property and not disclose the problem, which is how she purchased it. He pretty much told me that the sheriff’s auction does not have to abide by the same disclosure laws as ordinary sellers.” Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t realize buying a home at a sheriff’s auction comes with such risks. Normal laws requiring sellers to disclose such orders do not apply to sheriff’s sales. Now, he says, “What she thought was going to be her dream

Question: Slugs are chewing holes in the lettuce and spinach in my garden, leaving their slimy trails on the leaves. And now I’m also finding them on my perennial flowers. How can I stop them? Answer: There is no sure-fire solution to slug problems in landscape plantings and gardens during early spring. Slugs are favored by cool, wet weather and can remain active until hot, dry conditions force them into protected sites. Slugs feed on a wide variety of plants, shredding the leaves with their rasping mouthparts. They can be especially damaging to newly-set transplants and bedding plants. In general, insecti-

cides have little effect on slugs and chemical control is limited to applications of baits conMike taining Klahr metaldeHORTICULTURE hyde or CONCERNS metaldehyde + carbaryl (Sevin) as the active ingredient(s). The bait needs to be scattered evenly over the ground so that slugs encounter the pellets as they slide along in search of food. Baits disintegrate following rain or heavy dew so additional applications may be necessary. Also, metaldehyde is broken down by sunlight so it is

relatively short-lived. Spreading the bait late in the day, rather than early in the morning, will help get it in front of the slugs with minimal loss. Slugs will move under shelter during bright sunny days or when the humidity is low. Removing hiding places, such as boards, rocks, etc. will force them to find other shelter and perhaps relocate and do less feeding in the area. Or, hiding places can be used against them. Pieces of moist cardboard, rolled-up newspaper, boards, or upturned flower pots can be purposely left on the ground in a few spots.

KSO ends season with John Williams tribute By Stephanie Salmons

The Kentucky Symphony Orchestra will play music from movies and TV by John Williams at Florence Baptist Church at Mount Zion.PROVIDED/JIM FAUSZ

Purchase tickets online at, by calling 859431-6216 or at the door. Closing the season, music director James Cassidy said the group wanted to “end with something people are somewhat familiar with.” The orchestra will perform “The Cowboys” overture, 1960s television

themes, excerpts from “Fiddler on the Roof,” the suite from “Jaws,” “Imperial March” from “The Empire Strikes Back,” Olympic Fanfare and Theme, “Dartmoor 1912” from “War Horse,” “Harry’s Wondrous World” from “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” main title from “Star

Fruits, veggies good complement Clarence Birdseye changed the food industry when he developed ways to commercially freeze foods for use at home. His method allowed foods to be rapidly frozen to decrease ice crystal formation. When the foods were thawed and prepared they tasted like the fresh food did. From his first frozen seafood offerings in the 1930s to today’s grocery freezer cases filled with complete meal options, the frozen food industry

has come a long way. Frozen foods can be shipped long distances without any prodDiane uct loss alMason lowing us EXTENSION to enjoy NOTES foods that are not grown in the immediate area or season. Frozen fruits and vegetables allow us to enjoy a variety of tastes year

round. They may be simply seasoned and served as a side dish or used as ingredients in many recipes. One advantage of frozen fruits and vegetables is that you can use as little or as much of the package as you wish, and return any unused portion to the freezer for later use. And, there is no food waste. Most items don’t have to be chopped or peeled before use. Nutrients and flavors are preserved when fruits

and vegetables are frozen. Because fresh produce is harvested, processed, and frozen in a short amount of time the products are often at their peak of flavor and nutrition. In fact, some frozen fruits and vegetables have better nutritional profiles than their fresh counterparts.

According to Cassidy, “you wouldn’t be able to do that with any other film score composer.” According to a press release from the KSO, by the age of 24, John Williams was a staff arranger for Columbia Pictures before joining 20th Century Fox. He was also a studio pi-
