Blue Marble simplifies name, expands teen and adult offerings By Amanda Joering Alley

FORT THOMAS — Things are changing at Blue Marble Children’s Bookstore in Fort Thomas. The independent booksellers have simplified their name to Blue Marble Books and are working to expand their offerings when it comes to adult and teen books. Peter Moore, who has owned the South Fort Thomas Avenue store with his wife Tina Moore since 1979, said they just felt like it was time for a change. “We felt like after 32 years, it was time to refresh our image,”

Moore said. Along with changing their name, Blue Marble is now trying to reach out to more people digitally using Facebook and Twitter to keep customers informed. While the name change drops the emphasis on children, Moore said the store will continue to offer the same kind of products and services they always have, including advice about what books children in certain age groups with certain interests may like. The hope, Moore said, is that the name change and increase of teen and adult books will make Blue Marble Books a store for the whole family.

Staff is working to bring in even more young adults titles and create a teen section of the store, and will also be offering more books adults will be interested in like history, travel and locally themed books. Fort Thomas resident Nancy Baker, a long-time supporter and part-time employee at the store, she thinks the name change and increased selection of adult books will be beneficial. “In my 24 years with the store, I have always believed it was a bonus to have some adult bestsellers available,” Baker said. “Our paying customers are in fact mostly adults buying for

children, but we want them to also be able to purchase quality reading for themselves.” Baker said the Blue Marble has always supplied great books for teens and had a staff that is very knowledgeable when it comes to selecting books for teens. “The bottom line is that the Blue Marble is the same wonderful store it has always been,” Baker said. “The goal is to continue to attract new audiences, to provide great books for all ages and to serve our community by giving them great choices within their proximity.” While the name is officially

changed, some of the rearranging and renovating planned for the store is still in the works, but should be complete by this fall, Moore said. Through this period of change, the store’s staff has plenty of events they are working on for the near future, including their 33rd anniversary celebration in the beginning of June, a Where’s Waldo event in July, a Brain Quest event in August and several other author visits and events.

Library’s fair offers literacy information, fun for families By Amanda Joering Alley

COLD SPRING — Families from across the county came together for a day of learning and fun at the Campbell County Public Library’s annual Family Literacy Fair Saturday, May 12, at the Cold Spring branch. The fair, which in the past has been held at the Newport branch,

is an opportunity for families to participate in literacy activities, see live entertainment and get information about the importance of literacy, especially at a young age, said C.J. Connor, the children’s librarian at the Cold Spring branch. “We feel that literacy starts at age zero, or actually, in the womb,” Connors said. “We are here to offer parents and care-

givers ideas on ways they can optimize their literacy experience with their children.” Connor said along with having fun and promoting literacy, events like the literacy fair also teach kids about the library. “We want children to know that the library is a fun, safe place they can come to throughout

FORT THOMAS — At the Fort Thomas Independent elementary schools, teachers aren’t the only ones helping students. Through the Book Buddies program, older students meet with kindergarten students once a week to read books with them and create bonds. At Johnson Elementary School, Karma Klingenberg’s kindergarten class looks forward to their Wednesday afternoon visits from Josh Feldmann’s fifth-grade class. “My students just love it,” Klingenberg said. “They get to learn new words and show the older students the words they know.” Each week, the students take turns picking books to read with their book buddy. Feldmann said the program is an opportunity for his students to pass on reading strategies they have learned through the years. But, it isn’t just the kindergarteners who benefit from the experience, Feldmann said. “A benefit that I really enjoy seeing is how it gives confidence to my readers who may not read at the same level as their peers,” Feldmann said. “They have no inhibitions about reading with such young students and they gain confidence and self-worth from being a mentor.”

Jackson Etheridge and Nathan Vinson read a book together during Johnson Elementary School's Book Buddies program, where fifth-grade students are paired up with kindergarten students to help build reading skills. PROVIDED Klingenberg said the program, which began several years ago, was initiated by one of her former kindergarten students who mentioned that it would be fun to work with her current students. Beyond the academic lessons taught through the program, Klingenberg said it also gives the students a chance to get to know each other and bond. “My students love seeing their book buddies outside of class and getting to interact with an older student,” Klingenberg said. Klingenberg said she’s always received positive feedback about the program from parents as well, whose children tell them all about their book buddies.

Heidrich said these developmental delays can cause children to have issues with literacy, which is something she feels is very important. “It’s important that children have exposure to music, books, verbal communication and personal interactions because those things help with all areas of their development,” Heidrich said. When a child has a book read to them and looks at the pictures, they aren’t just learning about the words, Heidrich said, but about colors, shapes, coordination, motor skills and more. “There is just so much a child learns just by looking at a book,” Heidrich said.

Andrew, a starting member of Campbell County High School’s academic team, plays on the school’s baseball and golf teams.

ALEXANDRIA — Campbell County High School’s Andrew Perrin is celebrating a perfect score on the ACT exam. The 16-year-old junior earned a composite score of 36 on the college entrance exam, which he took in March, and just learned the good news. “I was definitely excited,” Andrew, of Alexandria, said of his perfect

ed student,” Donn Manker, Campbell’s academic team coach, said of Andrew. “He excels on the academic team, but he’s also successful on school’s golf and baseball teams. “He’s a free thinker…and a great student.” Andrew helped lead Campbell County High School’s academic team to an overall fourth-place finish at the recent Governor’s Cup State Finals – and he’s the team’s “social studies expert,” according to

Manker. While he excels in every subject, U.S. history has always been his favorite, Andrew said. He hopes to one day share that passion as a high school social studies teacher. “I like the subject matter and high school atmosphere…and think I could make a difference,” Andrew said of teaching. Andrew said his rigorous AP courses and years on the academic team (he started as a fifth-grader)

American Boxer Club visits Fort Mitchell By Libby Cunningham

Lively and friendly, ReMax, along with Vera Kollar, his owner, visited Fort Mitchell for the American Boxer Club's national assembly. LIBBY

FORT MITCHELL — ReMax is feisty, friendly and robust. He’s leaving the parking lot of The Drawbridge Hotel in Fort Mitchell with his owner Vera Kollar, tail wagging behind him, much like his legacy. Kollar, who hails from Illinois, is familiar with the spot; she’s been showing boxer dogs since 1965, when she was 12 years old, and ReMax, named after his grandfather, named Max, is a champion. Although he hasn’t been in competition in a while, he’s one of two dogs who’ve won the American Boxer Club’s championship with his original ears intact, Kollar said. “He has natural ears, usually they’re cut off,” she said. “The judges really approved.” ReMax and other dogs were in Fort Mitchell for the American Boxer Club


cations, including balance. “It’s like looking at architecture that’s been put together properly,” he said. The American Boxer Club has an international appeal, he said, with boxer owners from as far as Italy in attendance. “The biggest thing in dogs and showing dogs is luck,” he said. “Because no matter how smart you think you are, you get lucky.”


Campbell County High School is celebrating having 14 students score a 30 or above on the ACT in 2012. “We’re so excite for those kids, the opportunities they’re going to have its thrilling,” said Principal Renee Boots. Andrew Perrin’s perfect score of 36 was one of many score the school is celebrating, Boots said. “We usually have 10 or so students that are at 30 or above, but boy wehen you get to that 35 and 36 that’s some rare air,” she said.

helped him prepare for the ACT. To put his perfect score in perspective, a 36 is earned by less than onetenth of one percent of the more than 1.6 million students across the nation who take the exam annually. The average composite score nationally was 21.1 in 2011, according to This was Andrew’s second time taking the exam – he earned a 35 on his first attempt in December. Two of Andrew’s junior

classmates – and fellow academic team members – are also celebrating their scores on the exam. Jared Wittrock and Jenna Garofolo each scored a 35 on the ACT in March. “We’re proud of each one of these kids,” Andrew’s mother, Dianne, said of the group. “They all work very hard, but they also have a significant amount of natural ability. “They’re all part of the school’s gifted and talented program…and have great futures ahead of them.”

Class keeps NKU grad from ceremony By Amy Scalf

Shirley and Bob Hacker, are not only looking forward to their 52nd wedding anniversary in August, they are also celebrating the completion of Bob's bachelor's degree in English literature from Northern Kentucky University. AMY


When Bob Hacker likes something, he sticks with it. He’s been married to Shirley for almost 52 years. He’s attended Ashland Avenue Baptist Church, where he met his wife, for 56 years. And he’s taught a Sunday Bible study class at the church for 35 years. Hacker, who will turn 73 in July, has spent the last 12 years attending Northern Kentucky University working toward a bachelor of arts degree in English literature, which he would receive at graduation on Sunday, May 20, but he’ll miss the event because of his commitment to his Bible students. Hacker is a Holmes High School graduate of the Class of 1957, and he went on to become an engineering technician for Cincinnati Bell. “I had a job I loved for almost 40 years,” he said.


“Then I retired and I started substitute teaching and I thought I’d wasted my life. I should have been a teacher. When a student doesn’t understand something, and you explain it, and you see that light bulb come on because they understand it, there’s not a better feeling in the world.” Bill Dickens, who is both Hacker’s son-in-law and Calvary Christian School’s administrator, said Hacker is an enthusiastic and wellliked teacher. “The students love him,” said Dickens. “I

know we can call on him and he’ll always teach. He loves when the teachers leaves him something to teach. He’s been a good father-in-law, too.” Hacker liked his college experience so much, he may go back for a master’s degree, and Shirley said she’ll be there to support him if he chooses to continue. “It’s a great accomplishment. He’s a great student, graduating with a 3.98 grade point average,” she said. “I’m very proud of him and happy for him.”

Feed business opens Hebron store By Stephanie Salmons

HEBRON — Have a dirty dog? The newly opened K & M Feed Pet Tack store, located at 2291 Petersburg Road, Hebron, has just the fix. “You literally just bring in your dirty dog,” Michelle Huelsman of Ryland Heights, who owns the business with her husband, Keith, said of the all-inclusive self-serve dog wash offered at the shop. The Hebron store is the couple’s second location. The first is located in Alexandria. Huelsman said she and her husband originally bought the store, an existing business, in 2006 and changed the name. This is the first time they’ve expanded outside of Campbell County, she said. “We knew we needed to expand our business into the Boone County area,” Huelsman said. “We felt the dog wash was kind of a niche because it had been popular in our other location.” They wanted to better service area farms, she said. The store carries feed, supplies, animal treats, toys, limited clothing and purses and even has a “kids department.” Eventually, the store will even sell Amish-made sheds.

Michelle Huelsman and her husband, Keith, recently expanded their Alexandria feed and supply business, K & M Feed Pet Tack, into Hebron. The new location is operating at 2291 Petersburg Road. STEPHANIE SALMONS/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

Huelsman said she tries to teach engagement to her employees. “I want to engage our customers,” she said. “I don’t want to be just the person who rings them up. Anybody can do that. I want to be the person, who if they have a problem, I want to help them.” While livestock is part of the business, the store’s main focus is on companion animals – like cats, dogs and horses, according to Huelsman. “You’re going to be able to come in here and you’re going to be able to tell us your problems, and if we don’t know the answer – and we don’t claim to know all the answers – I’m going to get on the Internet and help you,” she said. One of their slogans is “we love our animals and

we love your animals too,” Huelsman said. “Because we do.” The Alexandria location has partnered with a local animal rescue and fostered cats, taking care of the dayto-day needs of these foster animals. “We give back on a daily basis,” Huelsman said. “One of your bigger box stores may have an event here or there, but very seldom are they taking care of animals every single day.” That’s something that sets them apart. “We bring knowledge, we care, we give back,” she said. The store officially opened April 1. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. MondayFriday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. For more information, visit

Carnegie announces 2012-13 series

Gift bolsters school science, math tech ready purchased enough personal computers to fill two classrooms in addition to the ones being purchased with the Duke money, he said. Along with personal devices brought in by students, the district is getting closer to a wireless device in each students' hands at the high school and middle school level, Sandlin said. Being able to connect the technology with science, math and engineering is a big part of what the move to wireless devices in each students' hands is all about, Sandlin said. Duke Energy's support of education and STEM initiatives within the company's service territory has taken many forms, said Karen Monday, vice president of foundation and business management for Duke Energy Ohio and Duke Energy Kentucky, in the news release. The district is working to build its STEM partnerships, said Associate Superintendent Shelli Wilson in the news release. The STEM coursework allows for "21st Century learning experiences" for students where they can create work where people working in a professional “real-world” capacity can provide feedback. Students will gain a better understanding of how science, math, engineering and technology are applied in a career through the STEM program and become more college and career ready, according the news release.

ALEXANDRIA — Duke Energy is putting a charge into teaching science, technology, engineering and math in Campbell County Schools. The company has donated $12,000 to the district for technology used in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) initiatives. The money will be used to support the district's "One-To-One Technology Initiative,” a plan to put mobile computing devices in the hands of every middle and high school student for research and educational purposes, according to a news release from the district. The funding will buy 20 new iPads for the school district. The funding allows the schools to bridge the gap between the "haves and have-nots" in the program that encourages students to bring their own devices, said Campbell County Middle School Principal David Sandlin. "The STEM program, this is a springboard off of "One-To-One Technology Initiative," Sandlin said. Area companies send teachers and administrators examples of what an ideal student project needs to look like to reflect skill businesses need and will need in the future, he said. "Industry tells us the direction they need us to go and so forth," Sandlin said. The district has al-

NKU recognized for community service Community Recorder

For the third consecutive year, Northern Kentucky University’s commitment to community service and public engagement is receiving top honors. This week the Corporation for National and Community Service admitted NKU to the 2011President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for continuing to engage students, faculty and staff in meaningful service that achieves measurable results. NKU has been named to Honor Roll list five of the six years it has been presented. One of the projects that was key to NKU's designation was the Museum Without Walls project, which addresses the critical issue of the declining use of museums by classroom teachers, particu-


tive writing to reinforce social studies. Two other NKU initiatives that helped secure this year's honor roll designation were the Mayerson Student Philanthropy Project and the KYOTE College Readiness Program The Mayerson Project began in 1999 and in the years since has distributed over $634,385 to nonprofits, generally in grants of $1,000 to $2,500 each. The program is designed to incorporate the teaching of philanthropy and community stewardship into college courses across disciplines. NKU published a national handbook in 2010 to instruct other colleges and universities in the use of this powerful pedagogy. Six hundred copies of the handbook were published and distributed and a second printing is planned

larly for field trips because of costs and other pedagogical concerns. In this project, museums are brought to tudents via YouTube videos aligned with state curriculum and complete with an accompanying lesson guide. Each virtual trip takes a museum object and its story, and through active viewing, hands-on activity and reflection exercises, illuminates a subject under study. The Museum Without Walls project was created within NKU’s Public History program by Professor Rebecca Bailey and funded with $9,500 from the university’s public engagement research pool. The first virtual field trip was completed in 2011. "The Way We Live" compares daily life in Ancient Rome and Cincinnati circa 1804 with today. The learning activity uses math and reflec-

thousands of NKU students who, during the course of the semester, volunteer in the community. The Corporation for National and Community Service, which has administered the Honor Roll since 2006, is a federal agency that engages more than 5 million Americans in service through its Senior Corps, AmeriCorps and Learn and Serve America programs. It also leads President Barack Obama's national call to service initiative, United We Serve. This year the corporation admitted 641 colleges and universities to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for their impact on issues from literacy and neighborhood revitalization to supporting atrisk youth.

The nationally recognized collaboration links placement testing, transitional courses in area high schools and development of transitional course materials. High schools participating in the NKU-based program require juniors who score below 19 on the mathematics section of the ACT to take a transitional algebra class. Eleven high schools participate. The Honor Roll recognition also celebrates NKU's overall commitment to service, including over 100 service-learning classes each academic year that partner with area nonprofits and

Camp Ernst undergoing renovations By Stephanie Salmons


ers heading to YMCA Camp Ernst this summer will notice some changes under way. The facility, which opened at the location on Camp Ernst Road in 1930, is in the first phase of the camp’s first major renovation since the 1970s, thanks to the “For the Love of Camp Ernst Capital Campaign.” Camp Ernst executive director Eli Cochran said

the goal was to raise $4 million for the renovations. Just under $3 million has currently been raised. Two projects – two new bath houses – will be completed by this summer while another – a new welcome and health center – should be finished by this fall, she said. The remainder of the planned projects will be left for a future phase that will “hopefully get started” within the next year, Cochran said. Both new bath houses replace older structures.

One of the new bath houses under construction replaces one originally built in the 1940s. It’s “lived a great life,” Cochran said, but was outdated “and really needed to be replaced.” “The new one is bigger and will be a better function for the campers,” she said. The second soon-to-be completed bath house will also replace an older one in the camp’s “leadership village.” “It serves the function we need at camp now,” Cochran said.

Benefit For Tornado Victims

Funded with a lead gift from the Schiff Foundation, Cochran said the new welcome and health center will house the camp’s administration functions, a health center for the camp nurse and a basement storm shelter while improving safety by allowing camp leaders to better monitor those coming and going. “It’s so great that in this climate, people still see the value of the camp experience and they want to give back and make sure camp is available for generations to

come,” Cochran said. Other planned renovations include a new pool,

kitchen, horse barn, fine arts center and some camper cabins, according to Cochran. “We have worked very hard to create the best camp program, but our facilities have seen a lot of kids,” she said. According to Cochran, the camp offers nine oneweek sessions and sees around 3,000 kids a summer. It’s time to put new buildings in place so the camp can “continue to carry on for the next 80 years,” she said.

Southgate students raise money for new library books By Amanda Joering Alley

SOUTHGATE — Students at Southgate Independent School have shown just how important books are to them by raising more than $1,100 to buy new books for the school’s library. When the budget for the library was cut from $3,500 to $2,000 due to state funding cuts, Southgate’s Media Specialist Angelic Boyers knew she had to find some way to raise money. “Out of that $2,000, $1,700 goes to programs and other obligations, leaving only $300 for new books, supplies and Reading Counts prizes,” Boyers said. After reading about the Scoops for Books fundraiser,

where students buy a paper scoop of ice cream for a quarter to put on their classes’ ice cream cone, Boyers said it seemed like a good fit for Southgate. “It’s something that’s fun for the kids since they get to pick out what flavor they want and put their scoop on the cone,” Boyers said. “Plus, since it’s only a quarter, most students are able to participate.” To make it more interesting and offer an incentive for students, the class that had the most scoops of ice cream won an ice cream party. Boyers said for some of the younger students, the fundraiser also served as a different way to learn about counting, money and height.

During the two week fundraiser, students raised $1,111 for the library, which will be used to purchase new books for every grade level and other materials, Boyers said. Principal Kim Simpson said Boyers is a very dedicated member of the school’s staff who is always looking for ways to improve the library and benefit the school. “The ice creams scoops incentive allows (Boyers) to purchase additional materials and books for the library that we might not otherwise have,” Simpson said. “It is a win-win situation because the students love the friendly competition and the library gets stocked with engaging students material.”

Preschool students point out how many scoops their class purchased for the fundraiser. From left: Vania Grayson, Emma Askins, Corbin Reynolds and Thomas Grayson. AMANDA JOERING ALLEY/COMMUNITY RECORDER

Students get schooled at police department By Amy Scalf

Elizabeth Hensley, a student at Bellevue High School, shreds documents while learning office skills at the Independence Police Department as part of the career exploration program offered by The Point of Northern Kentucky. AMY SCALF/ THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

INDEPENDENCE — For a few weeks, special needs students are learning lessons about real life at the Independence Police Department. As part of the career exploration program they attend at The Point of Northern Kentucky, six students from high schools in Kenton, Boone, Campbell and Pendleton counties are learning office skills and law enforcement with Independence’s finest. “The program gives them varied work experience, to see what they do well and what they struggle with, what they like and don’t like,” said Linda Lane, Transition Program coordinator. Lane said the program takes students to eight sites a year for

three to six weeks each to learn a variety of skills in different locations. This year they have also visited Erlanger Pet Resort, Klingenberg’s Hardware, Remke Market, Don Pablo’s Restaurant and Snappy Tomato Pizza. At the police department, students helped shred documents, compile training manuals, move furniture and enter data. Lane said students helped with clerical work at the city of Independence office as well. “Last year, they also washed police cars,” said Lane. “Everyone at the police department has been very hands-on, very accessible and friendly.” Students are accepted into the program on a case-by-case basis, and are recommended by their schools because they have a

“need for a transition program in the student’s individualized education plan.” She said many of the students go on to supportive employment. Elizabeth Hensley, a senior at Bellevue High School, visited the police department last year also, and said it has been her favorite location. “I like this a lot,” she said. “I like going to the job sites, especially the Independence Police Department, because I get to shred stuff.” Lloyd High School student Brandon Orcena, was entering data into the department’s computers, which he said he liked, just not as much as some of the other jobs he got to try. “Don Pablo’s was my favorite,” he said. “I liked doing dishes. I do it at home so it was easy

and it was fun. I do like computers. It’s fun. Everybody here is really nice to me.” Other students in the program include Justin Appiarius from Bellevue High School, Kelsey Coleman of Ryle High School, Eddie Lawson from Lloyd High School and Jon Steimetz from Pendleton County High School. Independence Police Department Secretary Catherine Weger said the city and the department welcomed the students “with open arms,” and she personally asked Mayor Chris Moriconi, City Administrator Dan Groth and Police Chief Shawn Butler for their approval. “This is such a great program,” said Weger. “They do such a great job and are so happy to be here. We’re happy to have them.”

Highlands dominates 10th Region tennis By Adam Turer

FT. THOMAS — Highlands High School continued its dominance of Tenth Region tennis. Both the boys and girls teams won their respective team title. Senior Drew Freyberger repeated as boys singles champion. Freshman Meredith Laskey won her fourth straight girls singles title. Junior Hannah Laskey and eighthgrader Lexi Herman defeated sophomore Abby Herman and eighth-grader Sarah Hoffman for the doubles championship in an all-Highlands final. Also qualifying for the state tournament were boys doubles team Atlee Mitchell and Aran Coughlan and girls singles player Mallory Martz. “I was confident that in the end we’d be able to pull it out,” said boys head coach Collin Shadwell of his team’s championship. The team title came down to the final match. Freyberger’s singles victory

also gave Highlands the boys team championship. Freyberger is now zeroed in on his final opportunity for a state championship. “Drew is playing his best tennis of the season,” said Shadwell. “He is looking really strong and focused. He knows this is his last run at it and he’s motivated by that.” The boys defeated Berea in the first round of the team Sectional, but lost to Henry Clay, 3-2. “It was a good experience for our kids to play those kids from Lexington,” said Shadwell. The girls also won their first sectional match, defeating Mercer County. The girls then lost to Notre Dame Academy. “We were happy to get a round further than we did last year, but we were disappointed not to advance as a team,” said girls head coach Kris Laskey. Despite not qualifying as a team under the sectional play format, the Bluebirds are sending nearly the entire girls

team to state. The top two singles and both doubles teams qualified for state. “We feel good about having two strong doubles teams qualify,” said Laskey. “They will push each other this week in practice.” Meredith Laskey aims to best her quarterfinals finish of a year ago. She dominated Regional play, winning the final match 6-0, 6-1. “Meredith is peaking at the right time,” said Kris Laskey. The boys doubles team of Mitchell and Coughlan is capable of making a surprise run. “When they’re on their games, they play really strong,” said Shadwell. “I’m eager to see what they do once we get down there.” The state tournament begins May 17 in Lexington. It has been an impressive season so far under two first-year head coaches in Shadwell and Laskey. “We’re getting excited about going down to Lexington,” said Laskey. “Everyone is excited to qualify.”

During the recruiting process, we stressed how next year’s team, which will be highly ranked in the preseason polls, needs an inside presence. Joe has played in a solid high school program under tremendous coaches. We really think that with added strength and consistently practicing against taller players, that he will blossom into a very good college basketball player.” -Brian Lane, head men’s basketball coach

Freedom look to bounce back FREEDOM FACTS

By James Weber

FLORENCE — Fran Riordan suffered some rare losing in the Frontier League in 2011. The second-year manager of the Florence Freedom professional baseball team was a three-time league all-star in the Frontier League as a player and the manager of the year in 2008 with Kalamazoo, leading that team to the league title. Riordan, 36, directed a 39-57 season in Florence last year, and will look to lift the Freedom as they enter their 10th season in the league and eighth in their home stadium. They will endeavor to reverse a team history in which they have had two winning seasons and no playoff appearances. “We had a lot of guys with Frontier League experience come in and not perform to expectations, and we had some guys get hurt that we expected to be a big part of the team last year,” Riordan said. “The combination of those two things led to a pretty disappointing season.” Florence starts the season 7:05 p.m. Thursday, May 17, at home against Traverse City. The 96-game season runs through Sept. 2. Florence has 48 home games, the last being Aug. 26. The Frontier League is independent from Major League Baseball. Its players are a mix of players straight out of college and others who had some time in the lower levels of MLB’s minor leagues. Because of league rules limiting the amount of experience a team can have, and the general attrition of players retiring from the sport, every team has a lot of turnover in its roster from one year to the next. The Freedom are no different, though a big part of their core returns from last season, with nine players from 2011 on the Opening Day roster as of May 14. The Freedom had to cut five players after Recorder

The league has expanded to 14 teams this year from 12, adding the London Rippers, located near Detroit, and the Schaumburg Boomers, a second Chicago-area team. Florence is in the East Division with the Evansville (Ind.) Otters, Lake Erie Crushers (Avon, Ohio), London Rippers (Waterford, Mich.), Southern Illinois Miners (Marion), Traverse City (Mich.) Beach Bums and Washington (Pa.) Wild Things. Evansville and Lake Erie are the closest teams at about 200 miles away. The West Division is Gateway Grizzlies, Joliet Slammers, Normal CornBelters, River City Rascals, Rockford RiverHawks, Schaumburg Boomers and Windy City (Chicago) ThunderBolts. River City is in the St. Louis area, as is Gateway. The rest are in northern Illinois. The season will be 96 games long. The two division winners and the two next best teams regardless of division will make the playoffs.

The Freedom will also make an overnight 500-mile trip from Washington to Evansville June 22.

“There are a lot of guys who have really opened up our eyes. After just a few days, we already know we are going to have a lot of young, quality arms. And offensively, we have a good mix of new and experienced guys who can really hit,” said Riordan. Only three players of the 29 on the May 14 roster have not had at least some professional experience. While the team has not succeeded on the field, the franchise has survived and prospered despite numerous problems in its first two seasons. The Freedom are one of five franchises from their debut 2003 season that are still in the league.

NKU taps D-I veteran to replace Winstel By James Weber

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS — Speaking at the site of

some of her old challenges, Dawn Plitzuweit started her journey towards new ones May 10. Plitzuweit, 39, was named the new head women’s basketball coach at Northern Kentucky University in a public press conference inside the Bank of Kentucky Center. Plitzuweit replaces Nancy Winstel, who retired after 636 wins, two national championships and 29 seasons, and Plitzuweit will lead the Norse into their first season of Division I competition this fall. “We were very familiar with Dawn and her ability to get the best and the most out of her players,” NKU athletic director Scott Eaton said. “She knows the game, is an outstanding recruiter and a great person. Her players have excelled in the classroom as well as on the court, and she is a great fit for NKU as we make the transition to Division I.” Plitzuweit, a Wisconsin native, was associate head coach at Michigan in the Big10, helping the Wolverines to the NCAA Tournament last season. At the Division I level, she also worked at the University of Wisconsin and Wisconsin-Green Bay. In Division II, she played at Michigan Tech, scoring nearly 1,400 ca-

Former Michigan associate head coach Dawn Plitzuweit took over the NKU women?s basketball program, replacing the retired Nancy Winstel, who won 636 games at the school. Story, D2 Provided photo reer points and playing in the NCAA Tournament every year. She played against NKU at Regents Hall as a freshman. Her first head coaching stint came at D-II Grand Valley State in Michigan, where she played against Winstel and NKU four times. Plitzuweit won a national title with GVSU in 2006, two years before Winstel won her second with the Norse. “When we started at Grand Valley, we thought, ‘who do we want to model ourselves after?’ and that answer was Nancy Winstel,” Plitzuweit said. A defensive-minded coach, she looks at basketball through the eyes of a math student, preaching low-percentage shots on defense and high-percentage ones on offense. “We’ll try to outwork people,” she said. “We’ll try to pick up full court

and get stops.” Plitzuweit planned to get to work immediately with not only the coaching transition, but the move to Division I. NKU will play a full regular-season schedule including 18 conference games in the Atlantic Sun, but will not be eligible for the postseason until 2017. Florida Gulf Coast dominated the league last year, going 21-0 in league games and 32-4 overall, and that was the only ASun team the new NKU coach saw on film last year while helping Michigan prepare. She will have plenty of time to learn her new opponents next winter, as she prepares her team for the new challenge. “Obviously, the competition level is greater,” she said. “Our goal is to focus on getting better every day and see where it takes us.”

Editor: Michelle Shaw,, 578-1053


Life, liberty and pursuit of happiness I grew up in Pendleton County on my family’s farm. It was there that I first learned the most important principles for life. I would raise baby calves off of a bucket until I could wean them and then raised them and sold them. Through my work with beef cattle and in tobacco at a young age, when I was 16 I bought my first car, paid for it with cash, no loan, and it was a brand new car. But that’s where I got my work ethic and started running my own small business there when I was 14, 15 years old. I then went to work for Wise-

way Supply as their fourth employee. We grew that company to what it is today. I worked in the private sector for 20 years Gary Moore before ever COMMUNITY seeking public RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST office. Because of my private sector experience and understanding the importance of not putting up barriers to rapid growth and development that we

were seeing and by keeping a handle on all departmental spending, we have been able to keep taxes low and government out of the way. I’m not sure others would have been able to do that. I know I have, and the success is in the numbers. Boone County is a great success story with 13,000 jobs created, taxes lowered, and revenues increased all under my tenure. This was done by using my experience in the private sector, listening to businesses and individuals, and taking decisive conservative actions.

Deficit reduction must reflect American values Deficit reduction is an important national priority, vital to our long-term economic opportunity and security. But just because it’s important doesn’t mean that it can be undertaken without regard to our national values. Unfortunately, the House Agricultural Committee left values on the sideline last week when it moved forward with a shocking proposal to cut food assistance for our nation’s hungry by over $33 billion. That it was done in the name of deficit reduction does not excuse the fact that cuts to anti-hunger programs at a time when need has never been greater are both reckless and short-sighted. Taking care of our neighbors is an American value. Every day the members of the Kentucky Association of Food Banks see this partnership reflected in the generous support of our volunteers and donors, and we are grateful that this value is reflected in Washington through important anti-hunger programs like SNAP, formerly Food Stamps. Some like to point to the great work that local food pantries are doing to suggest that hunger is better solved by charity at the

community level. Speaking from the frontlines, please hear us when we say that charity cannot do it alone. In fact, estimates suggest that charity Tamara provides only Sandberg about 6 percent COMMUNITY of all the food RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST assistance in the United States. Hunger is a national problem and it needs a national solution that starts with a strong federal commitment to programs like SNAP. Kentucky’s food banks are struggling to meet the tremendous increase in need for food assistance resulting from the Great Recession. We saw demand for emergency food assistance increase an astounding 84 percent from 2006 to 2010. We are already struggling to keep up with this increased demand because of declining federal support for the Emergency Food Assistance Program, which provides a bulk of the food distributed by our members. If SNAP were cut, there is no way that we would be able to make up the difference. Food banks need more supply, not more de-

mand. Protecting the poor is not a partisan issue, and balancing the budget does not have to be either. Our nation has a long, bipartisan commitment to low-income safety net programs like SNAP in past deficit reduction agreements. The three major deficit-reduction packages of the last two decades – the 1990, 1993, and 1997 packages – all adhered to this principle, as did the recent bipartisan Bowles-Simpson Commission. The American people deserve a thoughtful dialog about real solutions, not political showmanship. Congress should put the nation’s interests first and meet in the middle to craft policies that spur economic recovery, ensure broad and sustainable opportunity, and protect families when opportunity remains out of reach, including making sure that SNAP and food pantries are here to put food on the table until struggling Americans are back on their feet. Tamara Sandberg is the executive director of the Kentucky Association of Food Banks. The association is made up of seven Feeding America food banks serving all 120 counties of Kentucky.

Business mindset needed in D.C. I’m running for U.S. Congress because Congress is bankrupting America. The federal government spends $3.8 trillion per year while only receiving revenue of $2.2 trillion. The federal debt is now approaching $16 trillion. I want the job to go and clean up this mess. The federal government’s budget for the following programs is $2.343 trillion Social Security ($820 billion), welfare ($717 billion), Medicare ($523 billion) and Medicaid ($283 billion). If these programs are not solved quickly, the great American experiment of selfrule is over. It’s time for a business mindset to solve political disasters. I’m optimistic in this mission because I’m convinced that at least 40 percent of the cost of these programs is littered with waste and fraud. That amounts to $937 billion. This fact has caused me to propose that the federal government must exit the management of these four programs over a 10-year period. It’s America’s only hope. The federal government does not solve problems, they only expand them. Our seniors need not be concerned as I believe once

these programs are properly managed, the quality of these programs will improve. The Social Security ProTom gram is a perWurtz fect illustration why the federal COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST government COLUMNIST should have never managed retirement benefits. The Social Security Act of 1935 established a retirement age of 65. In 1935, life expectancy was 61.7 years. The formula was life expectancy plus 3.3 years. Today, life expectancy is 78.7 years. If the same formula was applied today, Social Security would kick in at age 82. This program was designed as a safety net if an American beat the life expectancy odds. All of us would have planned our lives differently if politicians had properly done their jobs. Instead, we are now slaves to a massive government bureaucracy. So what went wrong? Social Security was turned over to politicians to manage and securing votes became more impor-



A publication of

tant than fiscal responsibility. Social Security should have been developed in the free market and it would not be an issue today. America needs a leader who’s willing to fight the big battles today instead of delaying these issues for our children and grandchildren to deal with. One of my favorite Founding Fathers, Thomas Paine, said, “If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, so my child may have peace.” We need to clean this mess up before our kids realize what we’ve done. I’m terrified that America’s greatest generation is going to be followed by America’s worst generation. That’s unacceptable! Please visit to learn more. I’ve posted over 70,000 words outlining my positions on all the issues and I post new articles every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I’ve dedicated my campaign to voter education. I urge you to give me a chance to fight these battles by voting for me in the May 22 Republican primary. Tom Wurtz, of Fort Mitchell, is a candidate for the Republican nomination for Congress.

I have fought vigorously to protect liberty at its earliest stages. As a man of faith, I believe life begins at conception and as the protectors of rights, the government must give a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves. For my actions and convictions, I was humbled to be the only candidate endorsed by Kentucky Right to Life and Northern Kentucky Right to Life. This is a mantle that I take very seriously and will work tirelessly to maintain my flawless pro-life record. There has been much talk

over the past few weeks about the involvement of super PACs and endorsements. I want to take this opportunity to say that though I am very proud to have the endorsements of colleagues, respected individuals, and revered organizations, the most important endorsement for me will be that of the people of the Fourth District on May 22. I ask for your support, your prayers, and your vote. Gary Moore is a candidate for the Fourth District House Republican nomination.

Law cracks down on pill mills

Kentucky has taken a significant step forward in its effort to fight prescription drug abuse. On April 24, I joined members of the House and Senate and law enforcement from across the commonwealth as Gov. Steve Beshear signed House Bill 1 to combat an epidemic that claims more than 1,000 lives each year in Kentucky. I would like to thank Governor Beshear, Speaker Stumbo, Senators Jenson and Stivers and the other Jack Conway members of COMMUNITY the Kentucky RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST House and Senate who put politics aside to address one of the most serious threats facing Kentucky. I am pleased to say that HB 1, which takes effect on July 12, 2012, includes many of the key provisions I supported during the legislative process. First and foremost, I want to assure Kentuckians that this legislation is not designed to punish those who are legitimately being treated for pain, but rather to crack down on the unscrupulous pill mill operators who are lining their pockets as they flood our streets with deadly prescription narcotics. HB 1 will also require prescribers of Schedule II and III painkillers, with reasonable exceptions for anesthesia, surgery and other practices, to register and use Kentucky’s prescription drug monitoring program (KASPER). Only about 25 percent of prescribers currently use KASPER. Of those, 90 percent say it has changed their prescribing habits. Here are several other key provisions of HB 1: » Pain Management Facilities must be owned by a physician holding an active Kentucky medical license and a physician specially trained in pain management is required to be on the premises at least 50 percent of the time patients are present. » Pain Management Facilities must accept private health insurance as an allowable form of payment. » Requirement that licensing boards issue regulations putting limitations on “in office” dispensing to combat Florida-style “pill mills.”

Include your name, address and phone number(s) so we may verify your letter. Letters of 200 or fewer words and columns of 500 or fewer words have the best chance of being published. All submissions may be edited for length, accuracy and clarity. Deadline: Noon Monday E-mail: mshaw@community Fax: 283-7285. U.S. mail: See box below Letters, columns and articles submitted to the Community Recorder may be published or distributed in print, electronic or other forms.

» Doctors and nurses must check KASPER prior to dispensing Schedule II or III drugs, with exceptions for emergency services, hospice care and other limited cases. » Commonwealth’s and county attorneys shall report to the attorney general within three days any indictment of a medical professional for a felony drug offense. There is one area where HB 1 fell short. Law enforcement still needs greater access to KASPER data so that we may identify and investigate disturbing prescribing and dispensing trends. Some in the medical community are fearful of this increased oversight. My message to them is simple; let’s talk. Let’s work together to find ways to better share the data so that we can ferret out those very few bad actors who are fueling this epidemic. The majority of the doctors I’ve spoken with want to be part of the solution, not part of the problem. Kentucky loses three people every day to prescription drug overdoses. As Kentucky’s chief law officer, I am grateful for this lifesaving legislation. I assure you, I will work with the Legislature and the Beshear administration to implement this new law as efficiently and effectively as possible. Working together, we can ensure a brighter future for Kentucky families. Jack Conway is Kentucky’s attorney general.

N. Ky. prepares for festival season By Amanda Joering Alley

Festival-goers have plenty of options to choose from in cities throughout Northern Kentucky. From festivals celebrating holidays and heritage to those that celebrate local foods like Glier’s Goettafest, the Northern Kentucky region offers a wide array of festival fun to residents and visitors. In Newport, where back-toback festivals fill the summer months, festival planning was spurred by the region’s annual Riverfest during Labor Day weekend. City Manager Thomas Fromme said when Riverfest began decades ago, Newport staff saw that their city, particularly Riverboat Row which runs along the Ohio River, was a very viable option for successful festivals. “It’s just such a great venue for festivals,” Fromme said. “There is the riverfront, a view of Cincinnati, easy access and plenty of parking in the area.” The city began hosting its annual Italianfest, celebrating Newport’s rich Italian heritage, in 1991 and has since added several other festivals.

The Zinzinnati Bierband had members of the crowd dancing to the music during Maifest in Covington's Mainstrausse Village in 2011. FILE PHOTO With the location of Newport being in the the center of the Cincinnati region, city staff realized that putting on festivals would be a good way to pro-

mote tourism and the city’s businesses, Fromme said. “These festivals promote the city and cause a ripple effect, benefiting local businesses,”

Fromme said. In Covington, MainStrasse Village is another popular place for festivals and events. The MainStrasse Village As-

sociation administrative coordinator Donna Kremer said through their yearly festivals like Maifest, Oktoberfest, they also hope to promote their city, while giving people a chance to come out and have a good time. Kremer said one reason the association hosts these events is to raise funds for their nonprofit group. “Our mission is to promote Covington,” Kremer said. “We hope to continue to make it a more inviting place to visit.” In Union, the city is already in preparation for their biggest event of the year, Union Celebrates America, held the weekend before the Fourth of July. Karen Franxman, Union’s city events coordinator, said since Union doesn’t really have a core like other areas and instead has neighborhoods scattered throughout the city, she feels it important to bring everyone together for events like Union Celebrates America. “These events give residents a chance to build a community connection and really get that sense of community with each other,” Franxman said. “It’s a great chance for residents and visitors to come out and have some fun together.”

3 cups whole bran breakfast cereal (not flakes) 1 cup boiling water 1 cup brown sugar, packed 1 stick butter 3 large eggs 2½ cups all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon baking soda ½ teaspoon salt

The batter can be kept tow to three weeks in the refrigerator. Next time I make the batter, I’m going to use part whole wheat flour. My batter lasted two weeks before I used it up. Not a real sweet muffin. I love having this batter on an as-needed basis.

Update: Brown Hotel Hot Browns

The batter for these bran muffins can be kept in the refrigerator and baked on an as-needed basis. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD. 2 cups buttermilk (I used whole buttermilk) 1½ teaspoons vanilla Extra sugar for sprinkling on top (raw sugar is good) optional

Add water to cereal and stir until cereal is moistened. Set aside. Cream brown sugar with butter until smooth. Add eggs and beat until light. Stir in flour, baking soda, salt, buttermilk and vanilla until blended. If not baking at once, transfer to container, cover and refrigerate 2-3 weeks. When ready to bake, spoon mixture, about ¼ cup for each

muffin, into buttered or sprayed muffin tins, filling 2⁄3 full. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or so until golden. Variations: Sprinkle one tablespoon of any of these over each muffin before baking: Chopped dried fruit, blueberries, chocolate chips, nuts or a combination of two.

Alexandria fishing derby June 2 A fishing derby will be held at the Alexandria Community Park Saturday, June 2, from 9-11 a.m. All participants under 15 will receive a free T-shirt and will be given the chance to win prizes for the largest fish caught. For this one weekend of the year, fishing licenses will not be required; everyone is invited to bring a fishing pole and bait and enjoy a day of fishing in the park. The lake in Alexandria Community Park is one of 35 lakes in the Commonwealth stocked by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources (KDFWR) as part of its Fishing in Neighborhoods (FINs) program. The aim of the program is to create quality fishing opportunities near cities of all sizes throughout the state. The Alexandria Community Park Lake is stocked with catfish and rainbow trout throughout the year. “We consider it a privilege to be one of the few sites the Commonwealth has selected in which to

promote fishing,” said Alexandria Park vice-chair Cathy Combs. “The fishing

derby is an excellent opportunity for people to give fishing a try—we will

even supply them with a loaner pole.”

and savory herbs do not transfer. Basil: Plant basil next to your tomatoes for better tasting, healthier tomatoes. Basil helps keep flies and mosquitoes away. Mint: Really invasive, so best grown in a container. Mint keeps ants away. Spearmint is sweeter and more mild than peppermint. Thyme: A pretty border herb. Deer generally stay away from areas where thyme is grown. Oregano: A few wet oregano sprigs, placed on grill before grilling red meats, may help block

The original recipe contains 1 quart whipping cream. I understand now the recipe can be made with 2 cups, if you like. Someone asked if they could substitute milk. Yes, half-amd-half, whole or regular milk would work fine. The sauce won’t be as rich, so you might want to add a bit more flour.

When the kids were younger and something went haywire in their lives, they would wonder why. I would say “there’s a reason for everything.” Those are what we call “teachable moments.” Well, the same thing happened to me yesterday at suppertime. I asked my husband, Frank, if we had gas in the grill since I had a nice flat iron steak thawed out. The answer was “yes,” so he took the steak out to the grill. Then the answer got switched to “no.” We were out of gas. I didn’t want to use the stovetop grill pan (too messy) so I used the broiler. Oh my gosh, the steak turned out perfect. And I can’t tell you how long it’s been since I broiled any kind of meat. Now I’m a fan of broiling again. So even when you’re older, there are still teachable moments.

Ash/maple disease drops leaves Question: Leaves with brown spots and blotches are falling off my ash and maple trees. Will the trees survive? Answer: The symptoms you describe are referred to as “anthracnose disease,” which is caused by an air-borne fungus during rainy days of spring. Anthracnose diseases usually look worse than they are, and the tree is not usually killed by the disease. Sprays are not usually even needed. Twigs and branches may develop cankers or dead areas that girdle the stem, causing death of some branch tips, especially with dogwoods and sycamores. Premature leaf drop commonly occurs on infected trees. Anthracnose is not fatal (except for dogwoods in some circumstances),

Klahr SympHORTICULTURE toms on ash CONCERNS trees include small, brown circular spots on leaves, plus larger, irregular brown blotches and distortion of leaflets. Infected leaflets frequently drop from the tree. Anthracnose on maple trees results in irregular, brown to black dead areas on the leaf that vary in size and shape. On Norway maple, lesions are purple to brown and follow the veins. Leaves of Japanese maple blacken and shrivel up. Brown to reddish brown lesions form along or between veins of sugar maple. To control the spread and severity of anthracnose, follow these steps: 1. Prune out and destroy all infected twigs and branches; 2. Gather and destroy fallen leaves and twigs now and again in the

less of what we know about the health benefits, most of us do not get the exercise we need. One way Diane you can Mason increase EXTENSION your activNOTES ity level is by using your built environment, including sidewalks, stoplights, trails and parks. It may be appealing for those just beginning an exercise program to start by using the built environment because it’s close to home and doesn’t require the

costs of a gym membership. You just have to make time to use it. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, adults should aim for 30 or more minutes per day of moderate physical activity on five or more days of the week. Children should aim for 60 minutes of physical activity a day. Additionally, individuals need to engage in musclestrengthening activities that work all major muscles groups two or more days per week. These activities can be done in 10-minute intervals. Aerobic activity is anything that gets you breathing harder and your heart pumping faster.

Taking an evening walk on a walking trail or through your neighborhood can help you reach 2.5 hours a week, as long as you’re walking at a brisk pace. Bicycling or roller skating are also good forms of exercise that can be done in your built environment. If you have a chronic condition or disability, you can still reap the benefits of physical activity, but you should check with your doctor before your start any exercise program. They will be able to give you suggestions for types of physical activities that may work best for you.

Stevens received the award at KCCE’s annual Spring Conference held in Frankfort, Ky., recognizing his achievements as Northern Kentucky president including his involvement with KCCE among other organizations. A 21-year veteran in the chamber business, Stevens started his career with the Kentucky Chamber serving as the Director of Government Affairs and Small Business. In 1994, he was hired as the vice president of public affairs with the Northern Kentucky Chamber and became president and CEO in 2006. A graduate of Institute for Organization Management, Leadership Kentucky, an active member with ACCE, and a past president of KCCE, Steve has continued to be involved with our organization over the years, playing an integral role in the Tristate Conference held in Northern Kentucky in 2011, serving as a mentor to new chamber executives and leading the first book club discussion. During the past yearand-a-half, Stevens spearheaded an organizational re-structuring of the Northern Kentucky Chamber. Not only were processes streamlined, but all 23 staff members were assessed for unique skills and talents, which identified staff that could be better suited for other positions. Almost onethird of the staff changed part or all of their job functions, many moving to a different department and a new physical home.
