BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS
Police study details morale issues By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
ALEXANDRIA — While disagreeing with some of the findings, Judge-executive Steve Pendery still heeded the advice of a consultant’s report about the Campbell County Police Department that suggested ending merger talks with the Alexandria Police Department. Morale and leadership issues at the county police department were going to obscure any further pursuit of a merger with the Alexandria Police Department, according to the conclusion of an independent consultant’s 31-page report.
Alexandria publicly released the report Friday, May 24. Alexandria and Campbell County hired David Hobson and Lee Ann Morrison out of Richmond, Ky., in October to study the two police departments. The consultants interviewed police officers, elected officials and select community members and reviewed both departments’ records as part of their work. Pendery ended the merger talks with Alexandria in a May 17 letter to Alexandria Mayor Bill Rachford after hearing the results of the consultants’ report in April. The consultants recommended that the county engage in a
management study because of issues including “profound moral issues within its ranks” and that officers are “terrified of running afoul of leadership at the department.” The report also recommends that elected officials should be aware of issues within the police department and “take the opportunity to address them substantively.” The consultants listed the county’s performance standards as a cause for frequent dissatisfaction on the part of officers and citizens. The consultants say in the report that the county’s performance standards are “quotas” and “an antiquated practice of a
bygone era of policing.” Labeling them as standards, or something other than quotas is a poor policy choice and assumes subordinates and the public are not capable of understanding what is in practice, according to the consultants’ report. Pendery said he does not agree with the consultants on the issue of performance standards, and does not agree the policy is the cause for a moral issue. “We are going to address the situation, and I’m not going to get into details,” he said. “We are already addressing the situation by reaching out to outside experts and so far they agree with us that these are not quotas.”
Performance standards primarily require officers to do security checks of businesses, and vacation checks, he said. Officers are also supposed to write one ticket every other shift, and officers work four shifts in a seven day week, he said. “When the public hears the word quota they think that someone is there is writing tickets left and right,” he said. That’s not what is happening, and money from writing all tickets goes to the state and not the county, Pendery said. Campbell County Police Department Chief Keith Hill did not See POLICE, Page A2

Fort Thomas show to feature variety of antiques, collectibles By Amanda Joering Alley firstname.lastname@example.org
FORT THOMAS — The Fort Thomas Community Center will soon be housing antiques and collectibles from residents and vendors across the Tristate. The Fort Thomas Military and Community Museum is hosting its inaugural Antiques and Collectibles Show on June 2-3. Museum volunteer Bonnie Jansen, one of the coordinators of the event, said it came about when volunteers were talking about ways to raise money for the museum. “We figured that everybody loves antiques and collectibles, so we thought this would be a good fundraiser for us,” Jansen said. While the city provides the
building for the museum and covers the utilities, the volunteer staff has to come up with funds for display cases, renovations, items needed for events and more. Gloria Sisk, another volunteer coordinating the event, said they contacted dealers and reached out to local residents who might have items they want to sell. They plan to have more than 15 booths of items set up during the two-day event. “I’m excited to see what comes out of some of the homes around here,” Sisk said. Since Sisk and Jansen were in the antique business in the past, they will be setting up shop at the show selling some of their own items. Sisk said between the comfort
and space of the community center and the historical value to the area, she sees the community center as the perfect place for the show. “It just makes sense to have a show like this there,” Sisk said. “This whole area is just seeped in history.” Through the booth rental fees and $1 admission charge to get into the show, the museum committee is hoping to raise funds to help them keep the museum going. Renaissance manager Debbie Buckley said the volunteers work hard to make the museum as selfsufficient as possible. “The volunteers have put their heart and soul into keeping this place going,” Buckley said. “The community has also been very sup-

point out Alexandria is stretched thin in resources and personnel, and a merger would benefit the department by providing more resources and an opportunity for more specialization. The consultants conclude that Alexandria “has little other reason to merge.” The consultants’ report lists negative issues pertaining to Alexandria including the appearance the department is a “top heavy” on management, and being “too soft” in its policing approach. Alexandria Police Chief Mike Ward took issue with the department being “too soft.” “We have an unwritten policy of ‘We’d rather talk for an hour than fight for a minute,’” Ward said.. “I challenge anyone to review our use of force reports, which would support this statement.”

Workshop covers child support services By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
NEWPORT A June 7 workshop in Newport will kick-off an effort to educate people about all the services available and ways to use the Campbell County Child Support Office. Campbell County Attorney Steve Franzen said the idea is to have a workshop every two months, as long as people are interested in attending. The June 7 workshop will be about how to initiate a case in the child support office, he said. People might not realize the child support office handles cases beyond financial child support in-
volving foster children, dependent and neglected and abused children, and paternity testing, Franzen said. Being aggressive with child support collection, by making sure parents know how to make their payments and how much is owed remains a priority, he said. “It’s a real important aspect of local government,” Franzen said. “Anytime we can get parents paying for children that eases the burden for taxpayers and local government.” When a parent doesn’t pay child support one of two things happen, he said. “Either the child does without and has to go on

vices including location services to find someone who hasn’t met an obligation to pay child support, so people will find out valuable information by coming to the information sessions, Schatteman said. The state has recently set up a new website http:// csws.chfs.ky.gov/csws/ where people can change their address, make payments, contact case workers and get an account balance and understand what is owed, she said. Previously, people needed to call an 800 number to obtain an account balance, and now they can sit and look at it on a screen and think about it and budget, Schatteman said. “The more you know the less frustrated you’re going to feel about the whole system,” she said.

In many cases a parent not paying child support might be struggling to find work, but never the less, they still have to take care of their children, he said. “Like you and I our kids needs comes first,” Franzen said.

Holy Trinity celebrates 100th anniversary of Newport building By Amanda Joering Alley email@example.com
NEWPORT — For 100 years, the building at 840 Washington Avenue in Newport has been a home for Catholic education. Current and past teachers, administrators, students and others gathered to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the building that houses Holy Trinity Junior High School and Child Development Center Friday, May 25. “We’re very proud to be celebrating this anniversary,” said Principal Jeff Finke. “We want everyone to know that we have been here for 100 years and plan to stay here much longer, continuing to serve the Catholic education needs in the area.” » In 1912, the Revered Ferdinand Brossart laid the cornerstone for the new building for what was then St. Stephen’s School. » In 1929, the building became the home of St. Stephen’s High School, then was renamed Holy Spirit School in 1980 when the

parishes and schools of St. Stephen’s, St. Francis de Sales, Corpus Christi and St. Vincent de Paul merged. » In 2002, Holy Trinity School was formed when Holy Spirit School merged with St. Michael’s from Bellevue and St. Bernard’s from Dayton. » In 2005, the building became the home of Holy Trinity Junior High School
and Child Development Center, which houses more than 120 students currently. At the celebration, Mayor Jerry Peluso recounted his experience at St. Stephen’s as a student from 1965 to 1972, including the changes happening in the area that affected the school. “I remember being in
first grade when we had 43 students in our class,” Peluso said. “By the time I was in eighth grade, we had 18.” Peluso said the construction of Interstate-471 took out hundreds of homes in the east side of Newport, causing many people to move away from the city and school. Peluso said during his time and the school, he had

Local author pens fifth book Ky. 536 moves from dream to plan By Libby Cunningham Lcunningham@nky.com
FORT MITCHELL — Coffee shops on Dixie Highway might hold the key to Rick Robinson’s concentration. Robinson, a local author and attorney, celebrated publication of his fifth book, “Writ of Mandamus,” May 15 at the Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Crestview Hills Town Center. But his writing career is more than 30 years in the making. “I’ve been writing my whole life, but never had the guts to put out anything to be published,” he said. Growing up in Ludlow and Bromley he spent 30 years trying to write a coming-of-age novel about his youth, he said from a seat at Brewberry Coffee Company, where he occasionally comes to write. It didn’t work out. But it only took him 30 days to crank out150 pages about other subjects near
Rick Robinson’s fifth novel, “Writ of Mandamus,” was published May 15. PROVIDED and dear to him: law, politics and life in Northern Kentucky. Robinson gave a copy to his wife, to see what she thought. “She gave the ultimate wife endorsement,” he said. “(And said) ‘this isn’t half bad.’” After sending it to 30 publishers, three were interested in the story; Robinson’s writing career took off. His political thrillers are a series that follows Richard Thompson, a protagonist who starts out his career as a councilman in Ludlow, to Washington, D.C. The location isn’t the only Northern Kentucky
tie to his series, though. Other prominent Kenton County locations and figures make appearances too, with Robinson tweaking their names and appearances ever so slighty, he said. “Everyone tries to figure out the names,” he jokes, saying he’s included names similar to friends such as Patricia Summe, chief judge for Kenton County Circuit Court, and Family Court Judge Chris Mehling. “You write what you know,” he said. Robinson practices what he preaches, and provides a weekly column to the Daily Caller and often travels to teach at writing conferences. His skills have earned the personable Robinson the title of 2011 International Author of the Year and a pass to be produced as a film. “Everybody has a book in them, and I spent 30 years trying to write the wrong one,” he said.

ALEXANDRIA The idea of an east-to-west highway linking southern Campbell, Kenton and Boone counties together to Interstate-75, more than a decade in the works, now has financial backing. The Kentucky General Assembly authorized $54 million this spring to buy land for the right-of-way to improve or extend Ky. 536 in portions of Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties as part of the state’s sixyear road plan. For Campbell County, the plan authorizes the spending of $11 million in 2014 for the purchase of land for an extension of Ky. 536 from U.S. 27 to the AA Highway, said Nancy Wood, spokesperson for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s District Six of the Department of Highways. Funding for the purchases of right-of-way for Ky. 536 in Boone and Kenton counties will be avail-
able for the state to spend after July 1 this year, Wood said. The district is still waiting for the authorization of an additional $1.4 million to do redesign work of the Ky. 536 extension and make the overall project cost more reasonable, she said. “It’s too costly the way it is now to construct, so that’s why they’re redesigning it to make some tweaks to make it cost effective so we can move forward on it,” Wood said. Some of the construction costs, including the costs for reconstructing some of the side roads that intersect with the planned extension will be taken out in the redesign in order to focus just on the corridor, she said. It will still be until 2014 before right-of-way acquisition will begin in Campbell County, she said. The process of right-ofway acquisition in Boone County and Kenton County is expected to begin in fall 2012, she said. Funding of $21 million has been authorized for Ky. 536 in Boone County from Old Hathaway in Union to I-75, Wood said. And funding of $22 million has been authorized for a second phase of Ky. 536, from the railroad (Cincinnati Southern Railway) overpass near U.S. 25 to Ky. 17 in Independence, she said. There will be informational meetings scheduled, probably for fall 2013, for people the state will be buying property from in Boone and Kenton counties, Wood said. Campbell County Judge-executive Steve
Pendery said it is a wonderful thing there is money for Boone and Kenton counties as well. “There is utility to be had out of the road as simply a local road, but the highest and best thing that it offers is a connection all the way over to the expressway in particular,” Pendery said. “And for that to happen you need to spend money in Kenton County.” In Campbell County, there is already a complete section of Ky. 536 from the Licking River up to U.S. 27, Pendery said. “It’s a nice road, but it isn’t a divided highway,” he said. The section of Ky. 536 between the Licking River and U.S. 27 is what the county wants, and is similar to what is now planned for the entire length of the roadway, Pendery said. “We don’t want an interstate, because that cuts your community in half,” he said. The state funding money for the purchase of land is a clear signal the idea for Ky. 536 will become reality. Pendery said plans for Ky. 536 have been talked about as an idea for more than 14 years, and before he took office as judge-executive after being elected for the first time in 1998. Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine said he has gotten the impression from state legislators funding for Ky. 536 has been approved because they realize it is a regional project. “It will create an eastwest link that is sorely lacking right now,” Horine said.

Bishop Brossart unveils building plans By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
ALEXANDRIA — Bishop Brossart High School has announced plans for a $7 million addition to the school, including a new chapel and theater, with construction slated to begin by spring 2013. “At the latest, we’re looking to break ground during this upcoming school year,” said Principal Richard Stewart. The announcement of the expansion plans, approved by Bishop Roger Foys, are the beginning of a public fundraiser campaign, Stewart said. The school already raised $6.4 million in pledges and a significant chunk of that is in cash, he said. The project is in excellent shape, but not fully funded, Stewart said. “We do still need to finish the fundraising efforts, and we really need to stress that to folks,” he said. “We really need the community to really come out and let us do this the way we want to do it to its very fullest and best.” Stewart said the addition has been a focus for the school since he took over as principal three years ago. A silent fundraising phase has been going on until the addition was made public Friday, May 25, he said. “We’ve kind of hit a lot of our biggest donors already, so now we’re going out to the bigger broad community,” Stewart said.
Runners to race for reading something to volunteer my time, this combines both education and running,” he said. In the past, funds from the 5K have updated the mobile library, the Read Racer. Ron Anderson travels to Covington from Nicholasville each year to run the race. “The course is very scenic, starts in Old Covington, goes down by the river and you can see right across the river into Ohio,” he said. “It’s just challenging enough with the hills.” The race, which Anderson said is “not too big and not too small,” has attracted him for the past three years. So has the literacy aspect. “I work in the field of education. I’m an administrator at Asbury University in Central Kentucky,” he said. “Anything to do with reading or education or learning is a really good cause.”

Kenton County Public Library is inviting anyone interested in promoting literacy to participate in the annual Racing to Read 5K Run and Walk. The race takes place at 9 a.m. Saturday, June 9, in Covington.

PROVIDED “There are mailings being prepared to kind of hit the entire breadth of our community.” Plans for the new addition include: » A new library/media center » A chapel » A 400 seat theater/auditorium » Fine arts studio space » New administrative offices that will include a college counseling center with a personal counselors office “The more that we can raise, the more we can do,” Stewart said. “We don’t have to stop at $7 million.” Roger Keller of Cold Spring, one of three members of the fundraising campaign committee, said the goal now is to raise at least $600,000. The other two members of the fundraising committee include Tom Munninghoff and Jim

The dream from long ago is finally coming to fruition, he said. Now the committee’s work for the final funds needed will begin, Keller said. “Our focus is going to be going to the public, to the

Top students praise their teachers By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
ALEXANDRIA — The top 20 eighth-grade students take time to recognize the gentle nudge of their favorite caring and dedicated teachers at the end of each year at Campbell County Middle School. This year the top 21 students, determined by grade point average (GPA) proclaimed how their favorite teachers influenced them during a Wednesday, May 23, breakfast. There was a tie in GPA this year, so the top 21 students were honored. Matthew Wilson thanked his science teacher Doni Beaupre’ for inspiring and pushing him to do better. “I think you were the first teacher who made me participate in class,” Wilson said as he read a written speech aloud to Beaupre’ and an audience of parents, teachers and fellow top students. “I remember you getting on me because I was not engaged in class. You did not let me get by without giving you my best.” Wilson and the other top students handed a printed copies of their personal speeches to their teachers – most with a hug. Top students Abby Styer and Lauren Sebastion both picked language arts teacher Shannon Schumacher, who they had in grades 6-7, as their favorite teacher. Styer said in her speech that Schumacher helped her believe in her academic abilities. “She gave me the confidence in academics that I needed to succeed, and I want to say thank you to her,” said Styer in her speech. Afterward, Schumacher, who cried during her former students speeches, said their tributes were unexpected and touching because she hadn’t taught them in their eighth-grade year. “They have a lot of great teachers in eighth grade,” Schumacher said. “For them to remember one of their teachers from a previous year is pretty special.” Rachel Crigler picked eighthgrade teacher Chris Huber as her

NCC students prepare to attend West Point Military Academy NEWPORT — While most of their classmates are heading to civilian colleges and universities in a few months, two recent Newport Central Catholic graduates are gearing up to fulfill their dreams of being part of the country’s military. Lila Garner and Austen Davenport have both been admitted to the United States Military Academy at West Point, where they will spend the next four years as students. West Point, known for its leadership development, is a coeducational federal service academy in New York where the students, known as cadets, are trained to work as officers in the military after graduation. Both coming from military families, Garner and Davenport said they’ve always wanted to go into the military. “This is a great opportunity,” said Davenport, whose father and grandfather served in the military. “I believe the people that go to West Point are the best of the best.” For Garner, whose father served in the army for 20 years, going to West Point is the first step in reaching her lifelong goal.
“I’ve always wanted to go into the army and serve my country,” Garner said. “The honor code they live by at West Point is something you can’t find at any civilian college.” The honor code at West Point says “I will not lie, cheat, steal, or tolerate those who do,” a code that Garner said means a lot to her. To get into West Point, Davenport said they had to fill out an application and do a lot of paperwork, get a nomination from a state senator, representative or someone similar, and go through several interviews. To prepare to start West Point in July, Garner and Davenport, who have been friends since freshman year, have been training together to get in shape. “It helps a lot having him here to do this with me,” Garner said. Once they graduate, Garner and Davenport, who will enter the military as officers, will have to serve five years of active duty, followed by three years in the reserves, but both said they can see their military careers going beyond that. Both said their goal is to one day be a pilot for the military.

At this point, the Highlands Bluebirds are playing with house money. The team with just one senior starter and a losing record entering the playoffs just keeps finding ways to win. Now, the Highlands baseball program is going beyond playing spoiler - the team is making history. The Bluebirds won their first regional game since 2002 with a 9-6 win over Conner on Memorial Day. Highlands advances to the Ninth Regional semifinal on Wednesday, May 30, (after Recorder deadlines) against Dixie Heights at Florence Freedom Field. The regional appearance followed the 36th District championship victory over Newport Central Catholic. The 6-5 victory over favored NewCath came as a surprise to most, but not to this team that has rallied late in the season. “We weren’t really that surprised,” said head coach Jeremy Baioni. “We knew that if we played well, we had a chance. We’ve been playing well for the last couple of weeks.” Highlands now has won eight of its last nine games to improve to 17-20-1 on the season. When the team stood at 9-19-1 on May 4 after losing four straight games, the concept of a 20-win season was hard to believe. Now, reaching that benchmark seems possible. The Bluebirds are playing with a loose confidence few teams can match right now. “We feel no pressure,” said Baioni. “We’re not supposed to be here. We’re not supposed to be district champs. We’re not supposed to be approaching 20 wins. We’ve got nothing to lose.” Defense was the key to the district championship. Highlands committed zero errors in two dis-

When the defense plays like that, the pitchers think less and have better command of the strike zone. “We’re pitching to contact now because our pitchers trust the guys behind them,” said Baioni. After the District title, the coaches tried to keep the players loose. The Bluebirds took batting practice on Saturday, May 26, with music playing over the speakers. The team stayed loose through a long day Monday, May 28. The regional game with Conner was scheduled for an 11:30 a.m. first pitch at Florence Freedom Field, but was delayed due to the heat. The team warmed up for a second time before the evening game, which was pushed back to a 7 p.m. start and moved to Dixie Heights. The Bluebirds’ spring break
trip to a tournament in Myrtle Beach helped them prepare for Monday’s adversity, said Baioni. “We’ve prepared for this before, playing two games a day at the tournament in Myrtle Beach,” he said. “You get ready to go once, then you get ready to get going again.” Junior pitcher Gabe Schultz, the 36th District tournament Most Valuable Player, struggled through the first inning against Conner. He gave up five runs over five innings, but redeemed himself at the plate, finishing with a team-high four RBI. It was the second straight come-from-behind postseason victory for Highlands. The Bluebirds trailed NewCath 3-1 in the district final before pulling out a 6-5 victory. The win was not secured until the last play of the
game, when junior centerfielder Hector Molina made a spectacular grab for the final out. “Hector’s made great plays for us all year,” said Baioni. “We have all the confidence in the world in him.” Now, Highlands is the fearless underdog that no opponent wants to face in a win-or-go-home game. Dixie Heights has defeated Highlands twice already this season and is the only team to deal the Bluebirds a loss since May 4. The Bluebirds know that they have the momentum, while the pressure is on the 27-11 Colonels. “I knew we had that in us and I’m glad we get to move on and showcase our players for another round,” said Baioni. “Our guys are playing with confidence and feeding off of each other.”

Mustangs continue district domination By James Weber firstname.lastname@example.org
ALEXANDRIA — Bishop Brossart softball continues to beat all competition in the 37th District. Brossart defeated Campbell County 4-2 at Campbell County to win its 11th District Championship in the last 14 years. The Camels had one of their best efforts against the Mustangs in recent years. This year the Camels had already lost 12-4 to the Mustangs. “We weren’t patient on waiting on the pitch,” said head coach Tom Baynum in a school release. “However in the end we found a way to win and get the job done. I’m proud of our team for taking advantage of some situations and playing solid defense when it counted.” Allie Anstead got things rolling for Brossart in the second inning with a double, and she eventually raced home on a wild pitch. In the third she followed Maria Greis’ single with another double. A Karlie Shackelford shot up the middle made it 3-0 where it remained until the sixth inning. Campbell got on the scoreboard with a wild pitch and it became 3-1. Maria Greis scored with the help of Camel errors to make it 4-1. Brossart’s freshman pitcher Shackelford handcuffed the Camels to just four hits and earned a spot on the all-tournament team. She was joined on the

NKU pitcher mows down the competition By Nick Dudukovich email@example.com
HIGHLAND HEIGHTS In an interview during her senior season at Colerain High School, a writer asked Emily Schwaeble about the goals she’d set for college. For the softball standout, the answer was easy: Set records. By posting a 24-8 record for the Northern Kentucky University Norse, Schwaeble did just that, becoming the fifth 20-game winner in school history, according to the NKU Athletics’ website. “…Last year I didn’t pitch as much, but this year I knew I wanted to come out strong,” the NKU junior said. “Finally getting there and doing good things has been rewarding for myself…It’s nice to get my name up there.” The former Greater Miami Conference Athlete of the Year is no stranger to accolades. She was recently honored as part of the NCAA Division II All-Midwest Region team. She was named first-team AllGreat Lakes Valley Conference for the second consecutive season. For the 2012 campaign, Schwaeble posted a 2.23 ERA and struck out a career-high 279 batters. Her most important win of the year came May 6, when she held Illionis Springfield to three runs as the Norse advanced to the Division II Super Regionals. At the plate, Schwaeble has been equally dominant. She’s hit .311 with 12 home

runs and 37 RBI. Home-field advantage: Colerain High School sits just 20 miles north of NKU. The proximity of her hometown has enabled friends and family to keep track of her college career. “Every single weekend we’ve played here, my entire family comes down," Schwaeble said. “It’s nice being so close; some girls don’t get to see their families much.” Moving on up: NKU will compete at the Division I level starting this fall. The change in division is bittersweet for Schwaeble, because of an NCAA rule that will prohibit the Norse from competing in the postseason next spring. “For my senior year it
will be something new to experience,” she said. “There’s no postseason like this year, but I think it will be kind of cool. Especially the schools we’ll play down south. It’s kind of a whole different thing to be part of Division I.” Game change: While Schwaeble was dominant at Colerain, notching more than 1,000 strikeouts, she knew the competition in college would be tougher. As a pitcher, Schwaeble began focusing on movement and location, rather than speed. This season, in particular, Schwaeble had been extra attentive to her mechanics and putting spin on the ball. “Speed helps, but if you just have speed, girls will hit it out of the park all day long,” she said. Super Regionals: While Schwaeble is appreciative of individual awards, she’s a player who puts team first. Her commitment helped the Norse to a 38-19 record and an appearance in the NCAA Division II Super Regional round—where the squad eventually lost to St. Joseph’s. Despite the loss, reaching this round was a dream come true for Schwaeble. Every year, she watches Division I teams compete in their respective Super Regional series. “I always thought how cool it would be to be in those girls’ spots…” she said. “It’s awesome to be a part of…most teams don’t to do it. It’s pretty sweet.”

Fort Thomas native starts Bike & Build trek
This summer myself and 26 other young adults are setting off on a cross country cycling adventure. We will be pedaling from Jacksonville, Fla., to Monterey, Calif. The trip will take 2.5 months because along the way we will be stopping to build affordJessie Modrall able housing with organiCOMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST zations like COLUMNIST Habitat for Humanity. Orientation began Wednesday, May 16, with several presentations informing us of just what a typical day might entail. Thursday, as we will do most days on the Bike & Build trek, we woke up at 6 a.m. and packed all of our belongings into our 20-gallon storage bins. A tight squeeze for everything I'll need for the next few months including a sleeping bag. The storage bins will be carried in a chase van and trailer. After breakfast we headed out for a short 15-mile ride known as A Shakedown Ride intended to get riders acclimated to riding with one another and using the hand and voice commands necessary to be safe on the road. It's a very calming feeling to know that 26 other pairs of eyes are out there looking and seeing thing you may have missed. Though it rained hard for about half of the ride it was a refreshing change from the heat and humidity. Friday was a build day. We split up into three groups and headed to three separate build sites with Habitat for Humanity-Beaches Chapter. In less than eight hours we were able to ac-
complish an incredible amount. I even learned to use a power drill and put up soffit! Saturday, the 19th, was our first official ride as we set off across the country. We started the morning with a wheel dipping ceremony in which we dipped the back wheel of our bikes into the Atlantic ocean signifying the official start of our journey. When we reach the Pacific Ocean we will do the same with our front wheel to complete our journey. Today’s 35-mile ride was short compared to what we will soon experience. But, the scenery was beautiful and much of our route today was along the beach. We were able to score a free carousel ride as well as free entrance to the Fountain of Youth in St. Augustine, Florida. We even drank from the Fountain and I definitely look at least 10 years younger! Tomorrow is another short ride. And hopefully another beautiful day. Everyone has showered us with kindness and it is incredible to see people we meet get so excited about what we're spending our summer doing. There is a term within Bike & Build called “donation magic”... a term used for the effect of what happens when riders explain the cause to businesses and are able to get donations of free product, especially food. This helps cut down on extra costs so we can donate more money to affordable housing!

Preventing elder abuse We, “boomers” are also called the “sandwich” generation. Our children left for college only to return with degree in hand and then take up residency in our basements. Then we noticed that suddenly our parents have gotten old overKen Rechtin night and they require more COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST care and supCOLUMNIST port than we ever expected. We have become primary caregivers, giving support to both our children and our parents. We are in the middle, the “sandwich.” And we are getting older as well! It is difficult for us to juggle all of this as well as continuing to function effectively in
our jobs. So, we often employ others to give mom or dad the care and support that they need. We may hire a home health care provider to visit our mom or dad weekly to help with personal care. We may hire a home cleaning agency to help with light housekeeping. Or maybe a relative volunteers to help with mom or dad’s care. But what starts out as a solution to meeting mom’s and dad’s care needs can change into something else. No one, neither voluntary nor a paid caregiver ever begins this caregiving relationship with the intent to abuse or exploit mom or dad. But, it does happen. Senior Services of Northern Kentucky frequently receives calls claiming financial exploitation, neglect and physical or emotional abuse of the elderly. Elder abuse is an under-recog-
nized problem with devastating and life-threatening consequences. No community or country in the world is immune from this problem. It is surprising to learn that: » 7.6 percent of seniors report that they have been abused, neglected or exploited within the last twelve months! This rate equals the US rate of coronary heart disease. » In 2010, Kentucky received more than 13,000 reports of abuse for persons 60 or older. » There are up to four times more elder abuse victims than child abuse victims. » Elder abuse is under-reported: only one in 23.5 cases is ever reported (only one in 44 financial exploitation cases). » The abuse typically occurs in the older persons’ own homes rather than in nursing homes. » The perpetrator, the abuser is usually a family member, a
caregiver or a trusted advisor.
What you can do

June 15th is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day
Not only is reporting suspected abuse the right thing to do, the State of Kentucky is a man-
datory reporting state. This means that if you suspect elder abuse you are legally required to report it. You can report elder abuse at the 24 hour hotline 1-800-752-6200. Calls can be made anonymously.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Trash pick-up program reveals clean streets
The Senior Class of Silver Grove High School participated in the Trash for Cash cleanup program on May12th. We picked up litter on Mary Ingles Hwy. between the Interstate 275 bridge and just past the convent in Melbourne.
We were pleasantly surprised to see that this stretch of highway was relatively clean. We have cleaned other routes before and found a lot more trash. So keep up the good work residents of Silver Grove! Marcus Kidwell Senior at Silver Grove School

Flavorful fish tacos: That’s the rub foil and tie with string to make airtight. Place in a deep baking pan, put pan in oven and fill pan with boiling water halfway up the side of coffee can. Steam for two hours, checking water level after one hour. Add more boiling water if needed. Check by sticking a skewer into the bread; it will come out clean when done. Remove string and foil and allow to cool one hour before unmolding. Note: Brown bread flour is a specialty New England flour and can be hard to find. Make your
I can’t tell you how many recipes I’ve had over the years for fish tacos. Some were complicated, some were easy and most were pretty good since I have always used a homemade Rita spice rub. Today I Heikenfeld was in a RITA’S KITCHEN time crunch so I used a Southwestern blend from Colonel De Gourmet Herbs & Spices at Findlay Market instead of making my own rub. It was so good that I decided to leave the fish whole and serve it as an entree instead of as a taco. The time saved from making my own rub was happily spent in the garden, pulling weeds from the rows of Swiss chard and red onions.

Brush fish on both sides with olive oil. Sprinkle on both sides with seasoning. Roast 8-10 minutes depending upon thickness of fish, until it flakes with a fork. Don’t overcook. While fish is roasting, make sauce. To serve fish as an entree: Leave whole and serve sauce alongside or drizzled on top. I served mine with a side of potatoes. To make tacos: 8 tortillas (corn or flour), warmed 1 small head Napa cabbage, shredded or favorite greens, shredded
Break cooked fish into pieces and divide among tortillas. Top with cabbage and taco sauce. Serve with avocado wedges. Cathy’s cilantro scallion creamy sauce Cathy, an Eastern Hills Journal reader, gave me this recipe after I finished teaching a class on easy seafood entrees. “This is delicious on top of fish tacos,” she said. I used cilantro from the herb garden. You can also top the tacos with salsa, guacamole or pico de gallo sauce, if you want. Stir together:

Boston brown bread
I hope this is close to what Northern Kentucky reader John Meier is looking for. It’s adapted from a recipe by Jasper White, the famous New England cook. John loved Busken Bakery’s brown bread served in their downtown location. John enjoyed it with cream cheese and strawberries. Cooks Illustrated also has a wonderful recipe for Boston brown bread, which is a bit too long to include here. Check out their site for the recipe. To make strawberry (or pineapple) cream cheese, mix softened cream cheese with fresh diced strawberries and sweeten with confectioners sugar, or blend softened cream cheese with drained, crushed pineapple. You can also simply stir strawberry jam into softened cream cheese.

Garden veggies need to be fertilized
Question: How do I go about fertilizing my vegetable garden to help the plants grow? Answer: The type of fertilizer used should be based on the results of your soil test (a free service through your county extenMike sion ofKlahr fice). If you HORTICULTURE don’t have CONCERNS soil test results, at least apply nitrogen, since that nutrient is used up quickly and eventually leaches out of the root zone.

season, they need a uniform supply of nutrients. However, many chemical fertilizers are very soluble, so the initial application may leach down beyond the root zone before the growing season ends.
Thus, many gardeners “side-dress” their crops with an extra application of fertilizer during the growing season. The usual rate has always been 5 tablespoons of ammonium nitrate/10 feet of row.
Since ammonium nitrate is now difficult to find, any other garden fertilizer around 34 percent Nitrogen (the first number on the bag) may be used in its place. Otherwise, simply adjust the amount applied based on percent nitrogen. Ammonium nitrate (34-0-0) is 34 percent nitrogen, by weight. If a fertilizer containing only 10 percent nitrogen is used, such as 10-10-10, or a 12 percent nitrogen fertilizer is used, such as 12-1212, then you will need to apply approximately three times as much fertilizer as you would if using ammonium nitrate. Asparagus and onions require twice as much, and potatoes should receive about seven table-
spoons per 10 feet row, if using ammonium nitrate. Place the fertilizer in bands about 6 inches to both sides of the rows, then rake it in and water. Recommended times for side-dressing vegetables with fertilizer are as follows: Asparagus: Before growth starts in spring. Beans: After heavy blossom and set of pods. Broccoli and cabbage: Three weeks after transplanting. Cucumbers and muskmelons: Apply one week after blossoming begins and same amount three weeks later. Peppers and eggplant: After first fruit set. Spinach and kale: When plants are about one-third grown.
Onions: One to two weeks after bulb formation starts. Peas: After heavy bloom and set of pods. Potatoes: After tuber formation starts (bloom stage), about six weeks after planting. Sweet corn: When plants are 12 inches tall. Tomatoes: Apply one to two weeks before first picking and same amount two weeks after first picking. Beets, carrots, lettuce, parsnips, squash, sweet potatoes, turnips and watermelon: Additional nitrogen might reduce yield or lower quality.

Take time to protect your skin
Keller awarded SARE grant
“Slip! Slop! Slap! And Wrap” is the message from the American Cancer Society as we enjoy our days in the sun. The four key words remind us to: slip on Diane a shirt; Mason slop on EXTENSION sunscreen; NOTES slap on a hat; and wrap on sunglasses. These are four ways to protect ourselves from harmful UV radiation which can cause or increase our risk of skin cancer. During warm weather, the amount of time we spend outdoors typically increases. Sunlight helps the body function well, but unsafe sun exposure can be dangerous, especially for children. Most exposure to the sun happens before age 18. Research studies indicate that having even one bad sunburn as a child can increase risk for skin cancer later in life. Too much sun can also harm the immune system and eyes. Protecting children while they are young can pay off for them in the future. There are several simple steps you can take to help your family enjoy time outdoors and in the sun. » Use sunscreen. The higher the SPF (sun protection factor) rating on the sunscreen, the more it protects. Most of us don’t use enough sunscreen to provide adequate protection. One ounce, enough to fill a shot glass, is considered the amount needed to
Katherine Keller at Sunrock Farm has recently been recommended for funding for a $1,940 grant from the North Central Region Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program (NCR-SARE) for the project "Distribution Of Educational Materials To Schools Visiting Sunrock Farm From Greater Cincinnati." Keller works with Sunrock Farm in Wilder. Sunrock Farm's educational field trip program emphasizes respect for animals, plants, farms, farmers, and the natural world. The project will support printing copies of a children's book and teacher's guide that will prepare students and teachers for their field trip to Sunrock Farm. The book and guide will be distributed to preKindergarten and Kindergarten teachers visiting the farm in spring 2012. This grant was awarded as part of NCRSARE's Youth Educator Grant Program which supports educators who seek to provide programming on sustainable agriculture for youth. NCRSARE administers each of its grant programs, each with specific priorities, audiences, and timelines. The focus for each of the NCR-SARE grant programs is on research and education.

We have audited the accompanying ﬁnancial statements of the governmental activities and each major fund of the City of Melbourne, Kentucky (City) as of and for the year ended June 30, 2011, which collectively comprise the City’s basic ﬁnancial statements as listed in the table of contents. These ﬁnancial statements are the responsibility of the City’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these ﬁnancial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the ﬁnancial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the ﬁnancial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and signiﬁcant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall ﬁnancial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the ﬁnancial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the respective ﬁnancial position of the governmental activities and each major fund of the City of Melbourne, Kentucky as of June 30, 2011, and the respective changes in ﬁnancial position and, where applicable, cash ﬂows thereof for the year then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The management’s discussion and analysis on pages 4 through 6, and budgetary comparison information on pages 19 through 21, are not a required part of the basic ﬁnancial statements but are supplementary information required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. We have applied certain limited procedures, which consisted principally of inquires of management regarding the methods of measurement and presentation of the required supplementary information. However, we did not audit he information and express no opinion on it.

Summerfair returns for 45th year Community Recorder
Summerfair 2012 returns for the 45th year on June 1-3. The fair, located at Cincinnati’s historic Coney Island, will feature more than 300 fine artists and craftspeople from around the country. There will also be regional performers, a variety of gourmet arts, the Youth Arts Rocks! area for kids, and for the second year, the Little Black Dress Event, presented by Summerfair and Cincy Chic. What started as a small art fair’s salute to the opening of Cincinnati’s Playhouse in the Park has grown into one of the oldest and most prestigious continuous art fairs, annually drawing tens of thousands of art enthusiasts to see and purchase the works of artists from across the United States and Canada. This year, more than 700 acclaimed artists applied to exhibit everything from photography, painting, woodworking and ceramics to fibers, leather, jewelry
and 2D/3D mixed-media art. “Summerfair is proud to be the annual kick-off of the summer festivals for the Tristate area,” said Bob Hinman, 2012 co-fair chair. “Patrons can enjoy the warm June weather at Coney Island while shopping and interacting with new and returning artists, dining on fine gourmet foods and listening to the music of talented regional performers. There’s definitely something for everyone at Summerfair.” Summerfair 2012 has assembled a strong line-up of local performers like Raison D’Etre, Celtic Rhythm Dancers USA, Hills of Kentucky, Forget-Me-Not Historical Dancers, East Side Players and Robert Weidle. Many other bands, soloists, dance and theater groups will also be on hand performing on one of four different stages. Strolling entertainers – including balloon artists, musicians and barbershop quartets – can be found throughout the fair. Among the innovative elements at Summerfair
2012 is the Youth Arts Rocks! area, a special section for kids featuring an assortment of art activities and other entertainment for children, and the Little Black Dress Event, a fundraiser fashion show created in partnership with Cincy Chic featuring jewelry by 2012 Summerfair artists and little black dresses from Cincinnati’s own Trend Boutique. “The Youth Arts Rocks! area is a great place for children and families to paint, sculpt and make other crafts together,” said cofair chair Anne Poppe. “The Little Black Dress event is a wonderful opportunity for Cincinnati’s fashion enthusiasts to join us in Moonlite Gardens for a night of eclectic fashion and fun.” Tickets to the fair can be purchased for $10 with children 12 and under admitted free. Visit www.summerfair.org. Summerfair 2012 is at historic Coney Island (just off I-275 at Kellogg Avenue).
Shelley Simpson awarded child care foundation award Community Recorder
The Terri Lynne Lokoff Child Care Foundation (TLLCCF) is proud to announce that Shelley Simpson, lead toddler teacher at the NKU Early Childhood Center, in Highland Heights, received the 2012 Terri Lynne Lokoff National Child Care Teacher Award. Simpson is a resident of Fort Thomas. This exemplary early care and education teacher was selected from a pool of applicants nationwide. Simpson received an award of $1,000 April 19, at a special ceremony at Please Touch Museum, in Philadelphia. There are a total of 52 National Child Care Teacher Award recipients for 2012. Simpson’s award-winning project that she will implement with a grant from the TLLCCF is Exploring Outdoors. “In order to give the young toddlers some space to explore, I plan to add two toddler-sized picnic tables to replace our current preschool-sized table. This will give the children space to
Simpson read books, draw and have picnics outside in a safe area. I am also adding a water table next to our sand box so the children have regular opportunities for outdoor play and experimenting by mixing sand and water. A small arch bridge will be added to our mulch path to give the crawlers and new walkers a little extra challenge as they move about. The addition of shopping carts and strollers will not only give the new walkers support as they explore but, they will increase the opportunities for dramatic play outside,”
said Simpson. The recipients of the 2012 Terri Lynne Lokoff National Child Care Teacher Awards designed an enhancement project that illustrates the educational, social and emotional benefits for the children in their care. A committee of national early childhood educators and experts reviewed and scored the applications. Each recipient receives a $1,000 award: $500 to implement their proposed project and $500 to acknowledge their dedication. From the inception of the Teacher Awards program in 1994 the TLLCCF, with the inclusion of the 2012 recipients, will have presented 687 awards totaling more than $650,000 to early care and education teachers and providers for their dedication and excellence. For the twelfth consecutive year, the Terri Lynne Lokoff National Child Care Teacher Awards are sponsored by McNeil consumer Healthcare, the makers of Children’s Tylenol.
