Del Gardo’s goal: ‘Protect the Pecs’ By Amanda Joering

FORT THOMAS — In October, Steve Del Gardo’s life changed when doctors diagnosed him with male breast cancer. “I couldn’t believe what I was hearing,” said Del Gardo, 44, who had noticed a lump in his pectoral muscle a few months earlier. “I was in shock, you hear breast cancer and think of women, not men.” After the shock wore off, Del Gardo’s fight began. To treat his stage one male breast cancer, Del Gardo had to have a double mastectomy and chemotherapy treatments. He now takes medication to hopefully keep the breast cancer at bay.

Through the process, Del Gardo said everything was geared toward women from the “Wellness Center for Women” where doctors sent him to his medication, which has for the most part been tested on women. Del Gardo, a former Fort Thomas resident who now lives in Covington, said the diagnosis led him to his true calling, spreading awareness about male breast cancer. In February, the Protect the Pecs cancer foundation was born. “I’m really blessed that this happened to me because now I know I’m meant to do something good for the world,” Del Gardo said. “I want to make this foundation big and be the voice for men with male breast cancer world-

wide.” The main goal, Del Gardo said, is to spread awareness about male breast cancer and be a source of support for men to feel comfortable checking themselves for lumps, getting check-ups and making sure they find out if there is a problem before it’s too late. Throughout his diagnosis, treatment and the creation of the foundation, Del Gardo said he had so much support in the Fort Thomas community through friends like Dave Kraus, who is helping spread awareness about the Protect the Pecs through events like an upcoming awareness event at Mio’s in Fort Thomas. Kraus said Mio’s where he and Del Gardo met and became friends, has

been great and didn’t hesitate at the chance to sponsor the event. Another friend, Fort Thomas resident Rich Whitford is also helping with the foundation, which he feels is necessary to address the lack of awareness about male breast cancer. “Everyone in the community has been affected by cancer,” Whitford said. “(Male breast cancer) is something you just don’t hear about, but cancer knows no boundaries.” The upcoming awareness event is from 6-11 p.m. Saturday, June 15, at Mio’s and will feature a performance by the Carter New Band.

Campbell Fiscal Court skips vote By Amanda Joering

ALEXANDRIA — Though voting on the proposed 9 percent sanitary sewer rate increase was a moot point at the Campbell County Fiscal Court meeting, the issue as a whole was not. Following the recent rejections by Boone and Kenton county fiscal courts, voting on the issue was irrelevant since two of the three fiscal courts must approve any rate increase above 5 percent. While no voting took place, Sanitation District No. 1 of Northern Kentucky representatives and county officials discussed at length the problem, why the utility is in such financial distress and what needs to happen. SD1 executive director David Rager said since the courts voted against the increase, the board must now figure out how they will meet current sanitation needs while also addressing the 2007 federal consent decree from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet that requires SD1 to get the sewer system into compliance with the Clean Water Act of 1972. Currently, Rager said there are 179 overflows dumping sewage into the community that are against the law. “At some point in time, we’re going to have to spend the money to get in compliance with the law,” Rager said. “It can’t be ignored.” Rager said when the consent decree was agreed upon, revenue projections included about $5 million a

Whether clients need to relieve some stress or need some healing energy, new Fort Thomas massage and wellness practitioner Susan Unes has them covered. Unes, a newly licensed massage therapist and Reiki energy practitioner, recently found a home at Lotus Tree Massage & Wellness, also known as Fort Thomas Massage, at 11 South Fort Thomas Ave. Suite 6. Unes, who is also a yoga teacher, came to Fort Thomas to join her mentor, Mary Alice Walter, who has been running a practice in the city for the past five years. “She has guided me through the past year, so when I found out she had this space available, it just seemed right,” Unes said. Walter said since she

moved her practice from Florence to Fort Thomas, it has worked out very well for her. “(Walter) told me so many wonderful things about how the residents here support local businesses,” Unes said. “Fort Thomas just has such a small-town feel

and the people are so friendly.” Since Walter opened her practice, she’s had several practitioners using her extra space parttime, but she was look-

ing to add someone, like Unes, full-time. “I was really hoping to find someone who was serious about private practice, someone who is good that I could refer people to,” Walter said. “There is more work here than I can do.” Like Walter, Unes offers a variety of massage techniques, including Swedish, hot stone therapy, and craniosacral therapy, as well as Reiki energy work. Unes said Reiki is a hands-on healing technique, where energy is channeled into the client through the practitioner. “Reiki is God’s unconditional compassionate healing energy,” Walter said. For more information about the services they offer, call Susan Unes at 513-316-2206 or Mary Alice Walter at 653-8665.

year in revenue from new developments in their coverage area. With the downturn in the economy causing a halt in new developments, SD1 has lost out on that money. Additionally, Rager said the frequency of homes using low-flow faucets and toilets means less consumption, which in turn means less revenue for SD1. With the budget as tight as it is, Rager said they don’t have the money to make necessary repairs, which causes them to spend more money. For instance, since they don’t have the money to repair sewer lines to keep storm water out, on a day with three-quarters of an inch of rain, SD1 ends up treating 90 million gallons of water at one of its treatment facilities as opposed to the 20 million gallons of sewage actually being produced by customers in that area. Judge-executive Steve Pendery with 100s of millions of gallons of raw sewage ending up in the community, something needs to be done. Pendery said the rejection of the rate increase could have a “very serious potential downfall” if the SD1 bond rate is negatively affected, and customers could end up paying even more money. Commissioner Pete Garrett said no matter how it works out, customers should expect, at some point, to pay at least double what they’re paying now to address the area’s sanitation issues. “Everybody needs to get used to the fact that this is what’s going to happen,” Garrett said. Rager said after sending them information about the area and the SD1, the EPA recently agreed that Northern Kentucky is a “high burden” area, meaning they acknowledge the consent decree is unaffordable. SD1 will now work with the EPA to see if they can get the timeline for the decree pushed back. Commissioner Ken Rechtin proposed that the fiscal courts take a closer look at SD1. Rechtin said he’d like to see the fiscal courts come together in the next four months to approve a 5 percent rate increase. Rechtin also wants to cut at least 4 percent from SD1’s budget by increasing efficiency. Additionally, he said he would like to form a task force to review the governing structure of SD1, which he feels is outdatedfor a utility of its size. “This is broken,” said Rechtin, referring to the governing structure of SD1. “I don’t think anyone here would think that this works.”

Wendy’s will demolish, rebuild in Alexandria

ALEXANDRIA — The City of Alexandria has approved a new Wendy’s restaurant – on the site where the existing building sits. The city’s Planning and Zoning Commission approved a new site plan May 7 for Wendy’s to build a new restaurant building and demolish the existing restaurant. The existing restaurant, and site of the planned new building are on an outlot of the Alexandria Village Green shopping center and is at the intersection of Ky. 709 and U.S. 27. Exactly when work will begin, has not yet

been determined. The project to replace the restaurant has been delayed for now, and work could start in the third or fourth quarter of 2013, or sometime in 2014, said Kitty Munger, director of communications for Wendy’s. “It’s still in the plans and in the works to happen,” Munger said. There are several new types of restaurant concepts that franchise owners are building when replacing or building a new restaurant, she said. The franchise owner has not yet communicated what type of concept has been selected, Munger said. The demolition and reconstruction, once start-

The only issue is when the demolition will get started, Jewell said. The city has heard from Wendy’s work will not begin for at least two months until another restaurant rebuild in the region is complete, he said. Jewell said Wendy’s

has shared a five-page photo illustration package with the city to show what the new restaurant will look like. The new concept for the restaurant looks like it will be more inviting, and looks nice, he said. “You know, they’re even going to have a fireplace,” Jewell said.

Plum Creek Christian Church, located near Butler and the Pendleton County border, has three different program levels. There will be summer parties targeted at children ages 5 and younger and their parents, day trips for children in grades K-5, and community programs for the entire family. There are lots of opportunities for families to either get involved for the first time or stay involved, said Jared Perkins, children’s minister. A series of preschool monthly family nights will start with water games at 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 11. A goal of the family nights, which will include some kind of meal, is to engage parents so they can meet other parents and children, Perkins said. The family nights will continue with a hayride at 6 p.m. July 16, and an a petting zoo at 6 p.m. Aug. 6, he said. No registration is needed for the family

night programs. Registration is required for the day trips for elementary schoolage children, Perkins said. For information and links to register for any of the Plum Creek summer events visit At Highland United Methodist Church, plans are in the works for various family events and movie nights through the summer. These events go handin-hand with the church’s Vacation Bible School, themed Sonrise National Park, from 6-8:30 p.m. Sunday, June 16 through Thursday, June 20. Children’s director Vera Lohner said the Vacation Bible School will consist of games, Bible lessons, crafts, music and more, centered around a national park theme.

Southgate plan includes $5.9 million in priorities By Amanda Joering

SOUTHGATE — A recent review of Southgate Independent School’s district facilities plan shows a big need in the small, one-school district. As part of the plan, mandated by the State of Kentucky, the district and its architect have identified a list of priority projects, those that need to be completed as soon as possible, totaling more than $5.9 million in capital construction projects. “When the funds become available, we will go down the list and do as much as we can,” said Superintendent Jim Palm. Palm said the planning committee and school board recently held several special meetings to ensure the plan was complete and sent to the state board of education by June, so the district would be considered for

fund allocation by the state general assembly this summer. Palm said they should get word sometime this summer about what funding is available to the district for the projects, which include a major renovation of the school. Several items on the priority list are facilities the school currently lacks, including a room designed for preschool use, a music room and a special needs room. Currently, Palm said the school’s auditorium is being used for many purposes, including his office, which is located in the auditorium’s balcony. Other items on the list are things the school currently has, but that are outdated and too small. After new apartment building construction caused increased enrollment the past couple years, the preschool

through eighth-grade school has been operating over its capacity, even after a $1 million project in 2012 added four new classrooms bringing the school’s capacity to 175 students, Palm said. Palm said modular units will continue to be used to house the overflow of the school’s approximately 184 students. Until the priority projects can be complete, the students that can fit in the school will continue using the current facilities, which include the school’s original 1903 building and a 1930 addition, which in many ways don’t meet modernday school codes, Palm said. “The state says the life of a school building is usually about 50 years, so we’re way past that,” Palm said. “The taxpayers have definitely got their money’s worth with these buildings.”

CAMPBELL COUNTY — Tyler Durham was hoping for a little friendly payback to opposing players who had knocked him and his teammates out of the playoffs last year. While the Campbell County 2013 graduate was on the wrong side of the scoreboard again, he had fun competing against rivals from Simon Kenton and other schools as many of Northern Kentucky’s best football players convened on the same field June 6. The West squad defeated the East 38-7 in the Northern Kentucky East-West Football AllStar Game that night at Dixie Heights High School. Recently graduated seniors were eligible to participate in the contest. All Campbell County schools were on the losing East side with Covington Catholic, Dixie Heights and Holmes. Highlands had two players in the game, defensive back Jake Heck and offensive lineman Mitch Dee. Heck had a fumble recovery in the game. A crowd estimated at 1,500 watched the game, which returned from a one-year hiatus after a lack of interest in 2012. With help from In-Game Sports, the local coaches raised $15,000 for scholarships for departing seniors. Teams practiced for a week to get ready. “It was a beautiful night, perfect weather. It was a perfect scenario,” said Holy Cross head coach Bruce Kozerski. “You’ve got two good teams consisting of nothing but Northern Kentucky’s best and they played like it.” Durham, who will join the football team at Georgetown College this fall, enjoyed the educational experience of getting together with players and coaches from different schools. “It was a lot of fun playing with the players that you played against and watched,” he said. “I learned a lot the last three days and it was a lot of fun. It was cool seeing where a couple of guys come from, different offense and defenses and how they fit together, how much we learned in a short period of time.” Newport Central Catholic senior Dylan Hayes had 21yards on eight carries.

Highlands enjoys success on, off field Adam Turer Community Recorder contributor

State championships, college scholarships, and success in the classroom. Another school year at Highlands High School is in the books, and 2012-2013 was another banner year for the Bluebirds. Highlands claimed state team titles in football and girls cross country. It was the sixth straight title for the football team. The senior class posted a remarkable 58-2 record over four years. “That almost seems like a misprint,” said head football coach and athletic director Dale Mueller. “This group of senior football players was incredibly motivated and hard working and was so much fun to be around. I think the legacy they leave behind is that they could be counted on no matter what.” The volleyball, girls basketball, and baseball teams won District championships. Golfer Parker Harris won the Ninth Region title. Both the boys and girls tennis teams won Regional championships, sweeping the individual, doubles, and team titles. John Michael Griffith and Ryan Greene won state championships at the Class 2A state track and field meet. At Highlands, all of the athletic achievements take a backseat to academic accomplishments. More than 30 seniors in the Class of 2013 scored above a 30 on the ACT. Highlands was one of only eight schools in the state to be recognized as a School of Distinction by the Kentucky Department of Education. Six Bluebirds were recognized as Governor’s Scholars, and one student was accepted into the Governor’s School for the Arts. The Class of 2013 boasts five National Merit Scholars and one Commended National Merit Scholar. “The kids at HHS create a culture that ‘it’s cool to be smart,’” said softball coach Rob Coffey. “The kids place a lot of pressure on themselves to be successful in the classroom.” Several Highlands student-athletes will continue playing sports in college. “It’s a culture,” said Coffey. “We stress that sports are great for real life lessons, but nothing will take them farther in life than an education. Once you have it, no one can take it from you.”

OFF TO COLLEGE Here is a list of Highlands student-athletes who will continue their athletic endeavors in college, according to responses received from Highlands coaches. This list may not be conclusive; please email us if we missed you.

You can’t go anywhere in Villa Hills without seeing “Save Our Villa Hills Police Department” signs. I look at the signs and shake my head in amazement, partly because it’s great proof of an engaged citizenry. These people are fired up. They don’t want part of their government outsourced. I guess I’m in the minority. I wouldn’t stop at just outsourcing government services. Cities like Villa Hills are poster children for merger and consolidation. We elect officials, then try to remove them. We pay lawyers to fuss and fight – to sue and get sued. Villa Hills is a tiny city, yet it implemented silly civil service rules which generated more controversy. The press must love Villa Hills. Its wackiness has sold a lot of newspapers. Villa Hills has a $3 million budget, with fewer than 2,500 homes. Even if it watches every penny, do its citizens get their money’s worth? Larry Heinzelman, leading the charge on “Save our Villa Hills Police Department,” is one of the greatest guys you will ever meet. Villa Hills elected a new City Council. Nevertheless, small cities like Villa Hills should be Exhibit 1 in the case for consolidation. Why consolidate? The work that cities do is not easy. Popularity is about the least important qualification to operate a municipality. Legal challenges abound. With so many cities, we spread our resources thin and, in some respects, we increase our chances of failure. Just take a drive down Buttermilk Pike. Traveling east, you begin in Villa Hills, move through Crescent Springs, on to Fort Mitchell, and then to Lakeside Park. Hang a left on Dixie and pretty soon you’ll be in Fort Wright; hang a right and you’ll be in Crestview Hills. Same basic demographics, same geography, but six cities touching one another in a 2-mile radius. We look, and we are, ridiculous. I’ve written before about the intangible detriment of

separating ourselves with so many political boundaries. As Northern Kentuckians we should Rob Hudson look out for COMMUNITY one another, PRESS GUEST COLUMNIST regardless of the “city” in which we live, but many of us don’t. I wonder about missed opportunities. Yes, we could argue that having so many cities gives us more options to innovate, but any Northern Kentuckian who comprehends our arbitrary political boundaries deserves a medal. We could call it the Northern Kentucky Medal of Achievement for Municipal Numerosity. With all our blessings in Northern Kentucky, maybe I shouldn’t complain. But there are reasons I cannot run for Villa Hills City Council. In addition to my tendency to be too blunt, politicians should be honest. My slogan would therefore have to be “Elect Hudson – He’ll Do Away With Our Police Department And The Entire City!” This imaginary campaign always includes the sound of a B-52 bomber dropping a payload of munitions on my head. Let’s make this great region even better. What if we started from scratch? No competent business CEO would set up more than 40 cities in our region. The duplication alone would be abhorrent to any rational person. If there’s a silent majority for consolidation, it’s time to speak up. The loudest voices seem to like things the way they are. Come to Villa Hills and check out the yards. We’ve got the signs to prove it! Villa Hills resident Rob Hudson is an attorney and partner with Frost Brown Todd, LLC in Florence.

Shown are inductees, family and friends of inductees for the first Northern Kentucky Music Legends Hall of Fame. Ceremonies took place June 2 at the Behringer-Crawford Museum. MARTY WHITACRE FOR THE COMMUNITY RECORDER



By Nancy Daly

The inaugural class of the Northern Kentucky Music Legends Hall of Fame spanned many genres and generations. For the student of pop music, the induction ceremony on June 2 at the Behringer-Crawford Museum in Covington’s Devou Park was almost overwhelming. For instance, when emcee Charlie Coleman introduced inductee the late Steve Mendell, the breadth of the Bellevue native’s music career was eye-popping. Mendell, who was represented at the ceremony by cousin John Mendell of Fort Thomas, performed on 39 gold and platinum records. As a teenager he played bass on James Brown’s “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag.” Mendell went on to tour or do session work with Joe Walsh, Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton, the Doobie Brothers and Willie Nelson. He played bass on Tammy Wynette’s “Stand By Your Man,” and “Love Train” by the O’Jay’s. Mendell engineered Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Live Alive” and most of Townes Van Zandt’s records. There were 13 inductees in all and there were elements of education, pride and celebration throughout the awards ceremony. “We really have some of the best musicians in this area,” said inductee Gary Winters of Wilder, a trumpet player who has performed with the American Idol orchestra as well as

Bootsy Collins. Inductee Bobby Mackey thanked his family and supporters for his successful 40year career as a touring musician and Wilder nightclub owner. “And I’m not done. There’s still a lot of things I want to do,” Mackey said. “This honor today will live on after the music stops,” said Mackey, a Highland Heights resident. Steve Price of Burlington, son of the late country entertainer Kenny Price of the “Hee Haw” cast,” opened his remarks with an homage to his songwriter father’s hit “The Sheriff of Boone County.” “Dad was a good guy and he

would be saying right now, ‘Son, you’re in a heap of trouble boy.’” The family of Skeeter Davis came from Dry Ridge to accept her award. Davis, a country and pop singer and songwriter who attended Dixie Heights High School, had a major 1963 hit “The End of the World” that was featured on an episode of “Mad Men.” She was also inducted this year into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame. Her family, the Penicks, donated the Kentucky statuette for the BehringerCrawford “Music Legends” exhibit running through Sept. 1. Other inductees included Bob Braun, Rosemary Clooney, Mike Connor, Haven Gillespie, Michael Reilly, Charles Tharp and the band Strange Brew. One of the most enthusiastic inductees was Adrian Belew, a Covington native whose career has included front man and guitarist for King Crimson as well as collaborations with David Bowie, Talking Heads and Frank Zappa. “I left Northern Kentucky a long time ago and went all over the world but Northern Kentucky never left me. I’m still a Northern Kentucky boy and I’m proud of it and I love it,” Belew said. “I remember being up here in Devou Park and playing in the concert bowl that you have. I remember sitting out in the grass one day just playing cello by myself. So I’ve had lots of occasions here and I hope to keep coming back and playing for you.”

Slaw recipe from Rita’s ‘hall of fame’

Aunt Becky’s (Thriftway) cole slaw Depending upon how much cabbage you have, you may not need all of the dressing. Add and taste as you go along. Remember, the salad should be dressed, not drowned! The dressing keeps well, covered for a week or so in the refrigerator and is delicious on a simple salad of leaf lettuce and sliced tomatoes. 1 head cabbage, shredded 1 carrot, shredded 2 tablespoons sugar or equivalent substitute 1 cup each: Hellman’s mayonnaise and Marzetti slaw dressing Celery seed, salt and pepper to taste

Will Heikenfeld is pictured watering his Bonnie cabbage plant. Grandma Rita shares a cole slaw recipe. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen Use a bag of cole slaw mix instead of the cabbage and carrot.

Classic strawberry jam

Daughters-in-law Jessie and Courtney came over with their kids to make strawberry jam from fresh picked berries from A&M farms. Except for little Emerson, who napped during the jam making session, all four grandkids helped. After they left, my neighbor Sandy brought her granddaughter, Jalyse, over to make a batch. What a fun day! Check out my blog for step-by-step photos. Using local berries in season gives the jam a bright red hue and delicious berry flavor. 8 8 oz. canning jars with lids 5 cups finely mashed strawberries (we used the food processor after stemming the berries and washing them. Mashing by hand works, too.) 1 1.75 oz. box regular

Sure-Jell fruit powdered fruit pectin (not low-sugar fruit pectin) 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 7 cups sugar

Put canning jars in dishwasher and keep hot, or sterilize clean jars in hot boiling water for 15 minutes, again keeping jars hot. Keep lids and seals in simmering water. Using a very large pan (I have a gargantuan

MOTCH Since 1857

jelly pan), pour in berries, pectin and lemon juice. Bring to a boil over high heat. Add sugar all at once. Stirring constantly, bring back to a rolling boil over high heat. (You'll see big bubbles over the entire surface of the jam and when you stir the bubbles will remain). At this time, cook for 1 minute. Be careful, as mixture will burn if not stirred continuously. If you’re nervous about this, turn heat to medium high. Pour into hot jars carefully, skim any foam off top, wipe rims of jars with clean, wet cloth, and place lids and seals on. Turn upside down for five minutes (this kills any bacteria lingering on the inside lid). Turn right side up and let cool at room temperature. You’ll hear a “ping” when the seal is complete. The jam usually jells within a couple of hours, but sometimes it takes longer. If there are any jars that do not seal completely (press down in the center of the lid and it should not pop back up) store those in the refrigerator. Store in

cupboard up to a year.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Sometimes instead of turning the jars upside down, I’ll process them in a water bath for 5 minutes after filling and sealing.

Sugar-free strawberry jam

This year, grandson Will came home with a teeny cabbage sprout from Bonnie Plants. Bonnie Plants has a program throughout the United States that gives thirdgraders a cabbage plant to grow. At the end of the season, their Rita teacher Heikenfeld sends a RITA’S KITCHEN photo of the class’s best plant as a state entry. The prize is $1,000 scholarship for the winner in each state. Will is taking care of his cabbage in my garden and, so far, his Bonnie cabbage is larger than all of mine. This is a fun and educational way to get kids interested in gardening and eating healthy. It’s also the time of year I start getting requests for the cole slaws made in local delis and a reader favorite is Thriftway’s slaw recipe. It was given to me by a reader several years ago and remains in my recipe “hall of fame.” After Will sends his cabbage photo in, I’m going to teach him to make stuffed cabbage rolls and Aunt Becky’s slaw.

Side-dressing your vegetable garden Question: I finally got my vegetable garden all planted. I fertilized the soil in March. When will the plants need more fertilizer, and what type is best? Answer: The type of fertilizer used should be based on the results of your soil test (a free service through your local Northern Kentucky county extension office). For most vegetables to produce lush, continuous growth throughout the season, they need a uniform supply of nutrients. However, many chemical fertilizers are very water soluble, so the initial application of early spring may leach 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. Place the fertilizer in bands about 6 inches to both sides of the rows, then rake it in and water.

There are a few exceptions where a crop may decrease in quality if additional nitrogen Mike fertilizer is Klahr applied HORTICULTURE later in the CONCERNS growing season. These are noted in the table below. A combination of chemical fertilizer, organic fertilizer and mulch makes a good side-dressing. The chemical fertilizers give the initial boost required by young plants; organic fertilizers provide nutrients uniformly throughout the season; and mulch keeps the soil more evenly moist and the nutrients more uniformly available. For food safety and health reasons, do not apply fresh livestock manure to gardens in the spring or summer. The table below gives the recommended times for side-dressing different vegetables:

Crop Time of Application

Asparagus: Before growth starts in spring. Beans: After heavy blossom and set of pods. Beets: Additional nitrogen might reduce yield or lower quality. Broccoli: Three weeks after transplanting. Cabbage: Three weeks after transplanting. Cauliflower: Three weeks after transplanting. Carrots: Additional nitrogen might reduce yield or lower quality.
