Uganda Children’s Choir to perform in Fort Thomas By Amanda Joering Alley email@example.com Fort Thomas’s Highland United Methodist Church is again hosting a performance by the Uganda Children’s Choir this summer. The 22 children, ages 5 to 11, leave their school, Humble United Methodist School in East Africa, to spend their summers touring the country, raising money. The longest stop on their tour this year will be in Fort Thomas from Wednesday, Aug. 19 until Friday, Sept. 4, said Wynne Philippe, a member of the church. “This tour helps the children raise money for their school, where they also live,” Philippe said. Philippe said representatives from the school, started by the United Methodist Church in East Africa, go to the many displaced people camps in Africa and find kids who can sing and dance, and also those who need help the most. “A lot of the kids there have lost one or both parents to disease or to the violence that goes on there,” Philippe said. “By going to

for the first time last year. “We just developed such a bond with the kids, we wanted to continue to support them,” Philippe said. In November, church members
went to Uganda to donate their time and talents to the children. Since then, the church has done a project to collect new clothes for the children, who have almost nothing, Philippe said. “People in Fort Thomas are so generous and so involved with these kids,” Philippe said. “There really is a community connection that has been developed with the kids.” While the choir usually doesn’t go to the same places on their yearly tour, Philippe said she hopes they will make Fort Thomas a yearly stop. “Regardless, we plan to keep in touch with them and keep supporting them any way we can,” Philippe said. The choir is performing at 4 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 30 at Highlands High School’s Performing Arts Center. A reception will follow on the church’s plaza across the street.

Koester, who is a resident of Fort Thomas, recently performed with the University of Kentucky Womenâ€™s Choir as part of a concert tour of Italy. â€œI donâ€™t know if words can describe it,â€? said Koester, who sang alto during the tour. â€œEverything (in Italy) is so beautiful. It takes your breath away.â€? The choir performed at St. Peterâ€™s Basilica and at a music festival in Bologna as well as several other locations. Koester, who is a 2002 graduate of the University of Kentucky, was invited as an alumni to participate on the tour. Koester, 30, sang with a variety of choirs during high school and college. â€œIt was a love and passion from the start,â€? she said. â€œ(Singing) is a way to express yourself and let go. â€œIt brings with it so many emotions.â€?

New educational trail vandalized Vandals have carved graffiti onto the educational signs and kiosks erected this spring and littered the area with trash.
Vandals are hampering preservation efforts at St. Anne Wetlands again, but this time theyâ€™re targeting educational signs and kiosks and befouling the area with trash. While incidents of damage from ATV riding at the Ohio River wetland area have decreased since reported earlier this spring, vandals have carved graffiti onto the educational signs and kiosks erected this spring and littered the area
with trash, said Rebecca Kelley, Ph.D., director of environmental sciences at Northern Kentucky University. NKU is helping maintain the educational trails on the property along with the Campbell County Conservancy. The Congregation of

Divine Providence, which operates nearby St. Anne Convent, granted management of the property to the Conservancy in 2008. The most recent damage was discovered July 15 when Kelley led a group of middle school students enrolled in a week-long summer science camp on a tour of the educational trail through the about 100-acre wetland along the Ohio River near St. Anne Convent on the border of Melbourne and Silver Grove. The students received a lesson on the impact of vandalism in addition to learning about how a wetland functions, what they mean for water quality, and what organisms rely on the area. Kelley said she spoke to the children after they saw the vandalism. â€œThey all got it wasnâ€™t a good thing to do,â€? Kelley said. There were crude symbols and names carved into the cork board of an entrance sign, which Kelley tried not to point out to the children, and several of the six information kiosks were damaged along the trail. There were also food wrappers and bottles on the grounds. There are about 10 NKU students helping develop lesson plans and information that will be posted on the kiosks, and there is a concern that once that information is posted it could be vandalized too, she said. The wetland was a nice place, but it was sad seeing the signs vandalized, said Jackie Kremer, 11, of Wilder, a member of the science camp. â€œIâ€™m not sure why people do that,â€? Kremer said. The educational signs were hard to read, she said. â€œThey scraped off what was originally on them,â€? Kremer said. Olivia Whaley, 11, of Independence, said she got to see box elder trees, poison ivy and vandalism during their trip through the wetland. â€œI just thought it was disrespectful because they had just put the boards in,â€? Whaley said.

NEWS FROM NKU NKU receives grant
Northern Kentucky University has received a Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program grant that will expand online paraprofessional library programs and provide scholarships and technology stipends to 50 library staff members working in the commonwealthâ€™s high-poverty rural areas. NKU, which received $999,558, is one of 33 universities nationwide that received the grant, while 111 schools submitted proposals that totaled $63 million. â€œWe are extremely excited to be awarded this funding,â€? said Arne Almquist, NKU associate provost for library services. The grant will enhance existing associate and bachelorâ€™s degree programs and provide scholarships which will increase the level of education and leadership among library staff in 50 targeted counties in eastern and far western Kentucky. The programs will include Kentuckyâ€™s compulsory online certification program, the online associateâ€™s degree at Bluegrass Community and Technical College and a new bachelorâ€™s completer program in library informatics at NKU.
In western and eastern parts of Kentucky, counties are in the utmost need of professionally trained library practitioners. Almost one third of the directors of county librarians throughout Kentucky lack an undergraduate degree. Library directors in these regions are extremely dedicated and would benefit from the critical skills and knowledge provided by the program, positively impacting the level of service they can provide to their communities. Most librarians in these areas do not hold degrees because of financial barriers and location barriers. The Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program grant received by NKU seeks to address both of these hurdles by providing completely online programs, renewable scholarships and technology stipends that include laptop computers and Internet access.
The Northern Kentucky University Program for Talent Development and Gifted Studies is seeking 30 teachers to enroll in its MA.Ed. program. This challenging, rigorous and rewarding program prepares educators to
create hands-on, engaging and relevant learning environments. The MA.Ed. is a program for certified teachers to enhance their current certification and earn a masterâ€™s degree. At the completion of the Master of Arts in Education: Teacher as Leader program graduates will earn the Teacher as Leader endorsement on their Kentucky teaching certificate. This two-year program has many desirable and functional features. The MA.Ed. can be completed online, on-campus or as a mixture of both online and on-campus courses. Nonresidents can complete the online program for the cost of in-state tuition, and nonresidents who teach in Kentucky can also complete the MA.Ed. on-campus for the cost of in-state tuition. Over the past five years, more than 200 teachers from across the country have selected this prestigious program as their top choice for graduate school. Applications are now being accepted. For further information contact the NKU Office of Graduate Programs at 572-1555 or grad@ nku.edu or visit www.nku. edu/~education/gradprograms/certifiedteachers.

Nature hiking trails in your backyard By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
Several Campbell County pathways close to home provide a place to hit the trail and commune with nature. â€˘ Tower Park in Fort Thomas boasts a network of 18 dirt trails comprising about six miles. Some are very short and easy, going only a few hundred feet, while others are steep and winding, said Penny Kramer, assistant to director of the Fort Thomas Recreation Department. Some of the Tower Park trails go all the way down the hillside to Ky. 8 next to the Ohio River, Kramer said. Most of the trails are dual-use for mountain bicyclists and walkers, she said. â€œIt ranges from very easy to very difficult,â€? Kramer said. â€˘ The City of Highland Heights maintains a trail starting from a parking lot off Pooles Creek Road No. 1. The trail head takes people to the top of a hill where there are views of the Licking River valley. â€œItâ€™s a pretty hilly terrain until you get toward the top,â€? said Rick Little, the cityâ€™s public works director. There are some flat areas near the top the overlook the
Hereâ€™s where to find some of Campbell Countyâ€™s public hiking trails. 1. Tower Park is located off South Fort Thomas Avenue in Fort Thomas. Take I-471 to the Grand Avenue exit and turn right on South Fort Thomas Avenue. 2. Highland Heightsâ€™ hiking trail head starts at Pooles Creek Road No. 1. Take U.S. 27 south from I-471 and Pooles Creek Road will be a right less than a mile after passing the Martha Layne Collins Boulevard intersection. 3. The Campbell County Environmental Education Center and nature trails are located next to A.J. Jolly Park. Take U.S. 27 south from Alexandria for about four miles and make a right turn onto Race Track Road and continue for about a mile.
Finding the trails
AJ JOLLY COUNTY PARK KEITH BARKLAGE/STAFF valley that used to be a Boy Scouts of America campground, Little said. â€œIt is a little scenic once you get up there,â€? he said. The trail was created in the early 1970s when
Northern Kentucky Universityâ€™s Biology and Botany departments used the area as an outdoor classroom The trail is about 1.5 miles long, but connecting trails make the trail system
about four miles long, Little said. People can walk the trail system, which winds its way mostly through a forest all the way to Lakeside Commons Educational Gardens area near U.S. 27 and Martha Layne Collins Boulevard, he said. The part of the trail near Lakeside Commons is being revamped because of NKUâ€™s recent work to turn the former Lakeside nursing home into dorms, he said. NKU students already use the trails for things like scavenger hunts, Little said. â€˘ Further south at A.J. Jolly Park, two forest trails are maintained at the Campbell County Environmental Education Center. Along a one-mile trail that takes visitors through
the forest and around a lake there are signs alerting walkers to what is happening in the ecosystem around them, said D.J. Scully, the Campbell
County Cooperative Extension agent for natural resources and environmental management. The extension service maintains the trails in association with the county. The second trail, while only a half-mile in length, is more rugged and has no interpretive signs, Scully said. Called the Homestead Trail, it takes visitors near the remains of a pioneering homestead with rock footers and a capped well. â€œYou really feel like youâ€™re in the woods when youâ€™re on that trail,â€? Scully said.

In an effort to open the Campbell County Environmental Education Center to the public more, there will now be full-time environmental educator on-site. The center, operated by the Campbell County Cooperative Extension Service, has 50 acres of land that feature three distinct forest, field and stream habitats and 70 different types of trees. The center is a building filled with displays about the natural environment including the cross-section of a bee-hive in a tree trunk. There is also a classroom area for meetings and lessons. People have expressed their interest in greater access to the center, so it was decided to make an investment and hire a new staff position, said D.J. Scully, the Campbell County Cooperative Extension agent for natural resources and environmental management. Scully will supervise newly hired Elizabeth Clay, who starts work July 22 as the environmental education assistant. Clay will greet visitors and show people the displays. â€œHer job will be as a naturalist answering peopleâ€™s questions,â€? Scully said. Clay has a bachelors degree in biology with focus on ecology from Ball State University, and she has a background working both in nature and in education. A video game concept Clay created, which took players through several different field, stream and forest ecosystems, was a big part of why she was chosen for the job, Scully said.
In the future, Clay will conduct classes, and organize events like wildflower walks and star-gazing opportunities, he said. From now on the center will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday until Sept. 30. The center will be closed Monday and Tuesday. Winter hours will be from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday between Oct. 1 and March 31. The center is located off Race Track Road next to A.J. Jolly Park.

Elementary students to learn Fort Thomas history By Amanda Joering Alley firstname.lastname@example.org
Starting in the upcoming school year, elementary students in Fort Thomas Independent Schools will be learning some lessons that hit a little closer to home. All three schools are implementing a two-week unit about Fort Thomas history, which is being developed by teachers and community members, said Jay Brewer, principal of Moyer Elementary. “Basically this is a way for kids to discover Fort Thomas’s past and look towards the future,” Brewer said. The classes will use the book “Images of America Fort Thomas” by resident Bill Thomas. The unit will include mini field trips around the town and give students a chance to create a history of their family in Fort Thomas. “It will be neat to see some families that just moved to the city and others who have been here
for generations,” Brewer said. “It will be a great opportunity for families to learn together.” Brewer said the students will also get to utilize the new Fort Thomas Military and Community Museum in Tower Park. Debbie Buckley, the city’s Renaissance Coordinator who helped spearhead the developing of the museum, said teaching local history is a good idea and Fort Thomas has a lot of documented history. “Nothing makes kids more proud than to know that something important occurred where they live,” Buckley said. “Teaching them to be curious about their own community will create enthusiasm about all the historic buildings and sites in Fort Thomas.” Brewer said the plan is to continue the unit every year, but it will change. “One of the most exciting things about this project is that it will continue to change every year as new things happen and more people come forward with more information about the past,” Brewer said.

Students, staff, parents, community members and volunteers from Fort Thomas Provides, Inc. gathered at Ruth Moyer Elementary School Saturday, July 11 to construct a Rain Garden at the entrance of the school. The garden is meant to eliminate the flooding and drainage problems the school has been having. The plants and supplies were partially funded by a Campbell County Conservation District Education Grant and the Moyer PTO and was designed by parent Kris Barton. ALL PHOTOS PROVIDED.

Pennie Wiseman hugs her twin sons, Hunter (left) and Mason, during a visit at the Cincinnati Zoo last summer. This summer, Wiseman accepted the head coaching job at Bishop Brossart. She had previously coached at Highlands, but stepped down as the head coach after the 2005 season to start a family.
Wiseman takes job at Brossart By Adam Kiefaber firstname.lastname@example.org
It was in her freshman year at Maryville College (Tenn.) when former Dayton High School star volleyball player Pennie Wiseman knew she wanted to be a head coach. Maryville College head coach Kandis Schram, who currently has more than 550 wins in her 23year coaching career at the school, told Wiseman the freshman already knew more about coaching volleyball than she had known at her age. That comment stayed with Wiseman until she landed her first assistant coaching job her junior year. “I have had some great coaches that have been some wonderful role models. That is the reason I coach,” Wiseman said.
After college, Wiseman was an assistant at Campbell County from 2001 to 2002. After that, Wiseman went on to coach volleyball at Highlands from 2003 to 2005 and then again from 2007 to 2008. During the 2003 and 2004 seasons, Wiseman coached the freshman team at Highlands and then took over the varsity head coaching coach in 2005. As the varsity head coach, Wiseman led the Bluebirds to a 16-9 overall record and to the semifinals of the 10th Region Tournament. After 2005, Wiseman stepped down to start a family, and in August 2006 she had twin boys, Mason and Hunter. Wiseman returned to Highlands in 2007 and 2008 as the junior varsity coach, but wanted to be a varsity head coach again. So when Bishop Brossart head
coach Whitney Edwards (29-28 in two seasons) resigned ironically to take the same position at Highlands, Wiseman has hired to take over for Edwards July 9. “I am excited to continue to build a program. Brossart has a great support group and they have done a really good job of starting to build a program,” Wiseman said. “Unfortunately for them they have gone through a lot of head coaches – the past five seasons they have been through four… I would like to build something at Brossart and stay there for a while.” Wiseman will inherit 21 players from a Bishop Brossart squad that finished with a 16-15 overall record last year. Brossart also finished the year as 37th District runner-ups and made its 10th straight appearance in the regional tournament.
Sign up a city team for junior Olympics On Aug. 2, the City of Newport, with help from Newport Independent Schools and Newport High School Athletic Boosters, will host the 50th Annual Junior Olympics at Newport Stadium, Wildcat Drive, Newport. These track and field running, throwing and jumping games begin at 4 p.m. This is an old-school, countywide, city vs. city meet for people 5 to 18 years old, boys and girls. There will be more than 100 events, with kids competing in two-year age groups. The first three finishers in each age group are awarded medals. Last year, more than 500 medals were awarded to kids in Campbell County. There will be shorter races and a softball throw for the younger

Last year, Bellevue entered 28 athletes, Ft Thomas entered 20 athletes, and Newport entered 52. Most of Newport’s entries were very young kids. Introducing this sport to younger kids is critical to getting participation from kids, and their parents, as they enter high school. Many of the event’s yearly supporters and volunteers have
been working the event for a dozen years or more. Some of the people who generously donate their time and money include Jerry and Diane Hatfield, Marty and Bobbie Mayer, Keith “Tiger” Thompson, Barry Binkley, Greg Duty, Randy and Rory Rechtin, Janice and Jim Etherton, and others. One of the goals of the junior Olympics event is to bring track and field back to our kids and back to the level it once was in all of Campbell County. City teams are being sought for the event. Teams can train with Newport’s team from 6:30-8 p.m., Thursday, July 30. The entry fee is $50 per team to cover expenses for medals and incidentals, and banners.

Levines to compete in national tourney By Tony Meale firstname.lastname@example.org
For the third straight year, Ft. Thomas resident Steve Levine and his son, Max, will participate in the National Father & Son Clay Court Championship the weekend of July 24. The event, sponsored by the U.S. Tennis Association, will be at the Cincinnati Tennis Club for the 36th consecutive year; it is one of four national events on the annual father-son tennis circuit. Last year, more than 40 fatherson duos from 17 states participated in the clay tournament. “This tournament is very special,” said Steve, 52. “It’s fathers and sons. I always dreamed about us competing together.” The Levines began playing in the tournament when Max was 15. “I really enjoy the atmosphere of all the fathers and sons,” said Max, 17. “Everyone gets along very well.” It’s fair to say that the Levines know a thing or two about tennis. Steve, who played for the University of Cincinnati, is the director of tennis at CTC, while Max, who will be a senior at Highlands High School, was a regional doubles champion this past season with teammate John Drennen. “In doubles, you’re not two individuals playing together; you’re two people playing as one team,” Steve said. “You have to take your own personal strengths and weaknesses and your partner’s strengths and weaknesses and put them together to be the strongest unit possible. You move together and compensate for each
other. When he’s down, I pick him up. When I’m down, he picks me up. Communicating with each other and digging in and scrapping together builds a stronger relationship.” The Levines will be one of dozens of teams competing in the tournament qualifier July 23. Only six teams qualify for the main draw, but there are multiple back draws to ensure that all participating teams enjoy a full weekend of tennis. “It’s a first-class tournament; the CTC spares no expense,” Steve said. “It’s such an awesome experience.” The Levines have yet to qualify for the main draw, but they hope to have better luck this year; of course, Max is younger than most of the sons in the tournament. “(My age) might be a bit of a disadvantage; most of the sons played in college, so they have more experience,” said Max, who named all-city this past season. “But I’m younger, so I’m probably a little quicker.” Regardless of their performance on the court, the Levines treasure the moments that go beyond the box score. “It’s a great way to connect not just in tennis, but in your personal life,” Max said. Steve agreed. “I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to play in this tournament,” he said. “It’s a great way for fathers to pass on lessons to sons: How to control your mind, how to let go of the past, how to look toward the present. There are so many things a father can teach a son.”

Not only did McDole make a difference in the lineup, he was also a great fielder. On the year, he only had five errors in 522 defensive chances and a .990 fielding percentage at first base. His stellar defense earned him a Gold Glove for the Midwest Region. The junior was also named the Midwest Region Player of the Year and the Great Lakes Valley Conference Player of the Year in 2009. In addition, the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association named McDole to the Division II All-America third team and ESPN the Magazine named him to the Academic All-America team. McDole was the first NKU baseball player to be named an Academic All-American since the late 1970s. “It is real humbling. Obviously all these awards are great, but I am just going out there and playing the sport that I love,” McDole said. After his senior year, McDole would love to have the opportunity to play professional baseball. However, McDole is currently preparing himself for a career in accounting. This summer, he has an internship with Grant Thornton and has a 3.86 grade point average. “He is even a better kid than he is a player. If I had more like him, I would coach forever,” said Asalon, who has been coaching NKU for the past 10 seasons. “If I were to put together an All-Decade team, he would probably be my first choice. He is just good on and off the field. That is what you look for in a ballplayer.”
Baseball statistics • In 2009, McDole had a .355 batting average (72-of203), scored 58 runs (led team), hit 17 doubles, 15 home runs (tied for team led), had 55 runs batted in, a .670 slugging percentage (led team), 45 walks (led team), 23 strikeouts and a .490 on-base percentage (led team). • In 2008, McDole had a .336 batting average (49-of146), scored 30 runs, hit 13 doubles, five home runs, had 29 runs batted in, a .527 slugging percentage, 25 walks, 22 strikeouts and a .444 on-base percentage (led team).

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
In response to Davis
(Editor’s note: The following letters are in response to Geoff Davis’s column “The way forward on health care” that ran in the July 16 edition of the Recorder.) Contrary to what Representative Davis stated in the Recorder, there is presently no one government-run plan regarding health care reform. Once Davis and his colleagues produce the legislation, we can evaluate ”the plan.” There's no need to try to scare citizens in the mean time. Maybe Davis is scarred to take the necessary bold steps for true reform. Surveys show that a majority of Americans want health care reform sooner than later. Davis inparticular fails to see the need to remove the insurance corporations from between our doctors and us. Based on his statements it is not clear that he is willing to push for this and that is regreful. We should encourage Davis to work closely with his colleagues to no longer delay in creating universal health care for Americans, especially for the growing numbers of citizens in his district who can't afford private health insurance. If this means creating a public insurance agency for the needy, then so be it. A little honest competition may be just what's needed to keep health insurance companies honest and from reaping mushrooming profits. Congress provided for everyone's retirement needs with Social Security and Medicare. It should NOW respond to the needs of the citizens and their health care providers and not the insurance lobbies with universal health care legislation. Our health and our economy will actu-
ally benefit - and thats something Davis can't argue against. Steve Roth Orlando Drive Alexandria I found the column by Congressman Geoff Davis “The way forward on health care” particularly perplexing. In deriding a “government-run insurance” option he says will wind up “forcing private insurers out of business” and eliminating competition, he demonstrates an incredible level of hypocrisy – or at least – ignorance regarding the state of the state he represents. I’m self-employed. I moved to Kentucky 10 years ago from Cincinnati only to discover that Kentucky had enacted legislation that drove out nearly all health care providers. As a resident of Kentucky, I have two choices. Humana and Anthem. That’s hardly competition. Since Humana is headquartered here, I can only surmise that the legislation was enacted at the request of their lobbyists to drive out their competitors. Anthem must have thought, “hey, since there’s only one insurance provider in Kentucky, maybe we can take advantage of the situation, too.” As a result, my premiums for my wife and I – who are extremely healthy - cost us nearly $14,000 a year. Congressman Davis, I suggest that before you get on your ideological soapbox, you turn one of your blind eyes to your home state and take the lead in changing the pitiful, non-competitive, rip-off of a private healthcare system we have here. Then, maybe, you might have some credibility. Greg Newberry Canon Ridge Fort Thomas
Last week’s question
Are you worried about a possible worsening of the swine flu pandemic this fall and winter? Why or why not? Send your response to firstname.lastname@example.org with “chatroom” in the subject line.
Do you think the economic stimulus plan is working, or should the federal government implement another round of stimulus packages? “The stimulus is not working in the way it was intended because it includes only $400 annually in middle-class tax cuts and allots most of its money to state officials that don’t have the economy’s best interests at heart. It seems to be more of a publicity stunt – I remember an NBC Nightly News segment stating that road signs were being put up at construction sites to advertise the positive benefits of the stimulus; these signs cost $1,200 each in stimulus funds. Also, the money is coming too slowly: barely 10 percent of it has even been released yet. The economy can benefit only from Americans being sensible about their money and not taking out risky loans on houses, which was where this mess started. God forbid that the politicians should doubt the intelligence of their constituents so much that they feel the need to throw another pile of
money on the fire.”
“This answer depends on if you are promoting freedom, independence and smaller federal government, or power in the Democrat Party. “Much of the funding does not occur until the elections of 2010 and 2012, which is designed to guarantee continuation of the corrupt election process of complete Democrat control. “I would urge no more funding We really do not have the money and this process will eventually destroy our financial system leaving our grandchildren deep in un payable debt. “Please urge your congressmen to vote no on government health care, carbon caps. my generation fought WW2 for freedom not socialism.” F.J.B.

Fighting the flu on two fronts There’s a new flu in town: The H1N1 flu, commonly referred to as the swine flu. And boy, is this new disease getting attention. As we prepare for the fall, we’re faced with an unprecedented task of fighting the flu on two fronts, with the seasonal flu making its annual appearance in our area as the swine flu still lingers.
The new flu has gotten so much publicity, it’s easy to forget just how dangerous and widespread the seasonal flu is. Each year, 5 to 20 percent of the U.S. population comes down with the seasonal flu. In Northern Kentucky, 673 cases of seasonal flu were reported during the 20082009 season. Keep in mind that the number of reported cases is low – many people with flu don’t see their doctor or aren’t tested. Nationwide, 36,000 people die from seasonal flu each year and more than 200,000 are hospitalized. Two groups see the biggest impact from seasonal flu: It causes the most complications in senior citizens, with 90 percent of seasonal flu deaths occurring in those over age 65. It has the highest
infection rate, meaning it is spread most easily, among school-age children. To fight the seasonal flu this fall, a vaccine Steven R. should be availKatkowsky able for all those who want it. The Community Health DepartRecorder ment is planning guest community flu columnist clinics for midOctober and numerous local providers have ordered seasonal flu vaccine.
The new H1N1 flu is still emerging, meaning that research on the disease is in its earliest phases. From April through early July, about 34,000 cases of swine flu were reported in the United States, including eight in Northern Kentucky. Of those cases, 170 people died. Experts have noticed a trend with the swine flu that sets it apart from seasonal flu: It does not appear to be affecting the elderly. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that 60 percent
Using caution with emergency vehicles Occasionally on one of the news or entertainment programs on television, we see video film of a driver crashing into a police cruiser or a car that was pulled off to the side of the road sometimes injuring or killing the police officer or the person who was pulled over. Effective July 14, 2000, the Kentucky Legislature passed a law addressing this problem with the hope of providing more safety to emergency personnel and other citizens along the side of the road. Under Kentucky law, upon approaching a stationary emergency vehicle that is giving a signal by displaying flashing red, and/or white, and/or blue lights, the approaching driver is required to take certain precautions. If the road has at least two lanes proceeding in the same direction as the approaching vehicle, then the driver is required to move over a lane not adjacent to the lane of the authorized emergency vehicle. If the approaching vehicle is not able to change lanes because of safety or traffic conditions, then
that driver is required to reduce the speed of the vehicle for safety purposes while passing the emergency vehicle. For example, if you see a cruisJames A. er with lights Daley pulled off the of the road Community side along the four Recorder lane section of guest U.S. 27 or on columnist the AA Highway, then you are required to either safely change lanes into the center lane when you pass the cruiser, or if changing lanes would be impossible or unsafe due to traffic conditions, then you are required to slow down while passing the cruiser. If you are traveling on I471 or I-275, which each have three lanes in each direction at most locations, then, upon approaching the cruiser or other emergency vehicle with lights on, you should move away from the

of swine flu cases and 42 percent of hospitalizations were in people age 5 to 24 years old. Studies are underway to determine why this is the case. To fight the swine flu this fall, common sense precautions may be the only option for many. A vaccine is expected to be available, but most likely not for everyone who wishes to receive it. If you aren’t able to be vaccinated, you still can protect yourself by washing your hands frequently and avoiding those who are sick. While there is much uncertainty as we enter this unusual fall flu season, I assure you that your Health Department is ready to respond. We’re busy making plans and monitoring the situation as it emerges. For the latest information, visit our Web site at www.nkyhealth.org. But even the best plans could use a little help. The Health Department has 180 staff who will be dedicated to fighting the flu this fall. Imagine how successful our efforts would be if 385,000 Northern Kentucky residents joined the response. Steven R. Katkowsky, M.D. is the District Director of Healthfor the Northern Kentucky Health Department.

Southgate resident Sophia McIntosh, 9, hold up about 20 inches of hair she got cut off to donate to Pantene's Beautiful Lengths.
Southgate girl donates hair to help others For her entire life, Southgate resident Sophia McIntosh never did anything more than have her hair trimmed. This led to some very long locks on the 9-year-old who is a third-grader at St. Therese School. After her parents told her about people who get sick and lose their hair, Sophia realized all her hair could really help someone in need. “I just wanted to help some of these people so they could have hair,” Sophia said. Sophia had about 20 inches cut off of her hair, which she donated to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths, a
campaign that encourages people to grow, cut and donate their hair to create free, real-hair wigs for women who have lost their hair because of cancer. Sophia said while her first real, and really big, hair cut was a little scary, it was also exciting and felt good to be helping others. “I feels really different, and its definitely cooler,” Sophia said. Now, with barely shoulder length hair, Sophia said she is already planning to grow out her hair and donate again.

Muggles (you know...non-magic folk) dressed up as wizards and creatures from author J.K. Rowling’s fictional Harry Potter universe and packed the AMC Newport 20 Theatres for a midnight premiere of the latest movie on all screens July 14. “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” is the sixth movie adaptation of the book by Rowling of the same title. The series ends with the seventh book. While not everyone dressed up, many teens and 20-somethings dressed up as witches and wizards. Some of the audience wore signs with the word “Muggle,” the word for people without magical abilities used in the books and movies. Inside theater six, a young man led a round of clapping and a cheer of “When I say Harry you say Potter” that roused the entire room into a bout of yelling “Harry Potter” over and over. “We’ve read all the books several times, so we’re pretty excited to see it,” said Keno Bakunawa, 17, of Alexandria. Bakunawa said he enjoys the books and movies because they incorporates almost every magical creature and concept imaginable from giants to dragons and wizards. “It’s like a giant fairy tale book,” he said. Bakunawa attended the midnight showing with Brian Becker, 17, of Wilder and Chelsea Rothschild, 17, of Finneytown, two of his classmates from Covington Latin School’s Class of 2009. “It’s magic,” Becker said. “It takes you out of this world to some fantastic place where anything is possible.” Becker dressed up in full black wizard robe and carried a wand into the theater. “This is like the one day of the year we get to act like fools and not worry about

Rothschild, said she started reading Harry Potter books at age 7. “The first book got me into reading chapter books, so it was really important to me,” she said. Rothschild’s favorite character is Hermione in part because the character is smart. “She’s just a strong female character,” Rothschild said. “You don’t find that in a lot of children’s books.” Robin Finzer, 18, of Anderson Township, said she came to the midnight premiere with a group of 20 people from her high school’s graduating class. Finzer dressed up as a witch for the evening. “We all decided as one last thing before college we’d dress up and come,” she said. Pam Schultz, 36, of New-
port, came with her husband Brian to the midnight show. She usually dresses up for the movie premieres, but this time she didn’t have enough time because they have a 1-year-old at home. Schultz said they’ve even named their Australian cattle dog Potter in part because the dog has a white slash of

AMC staff handed out free movie passes, issued refunds, and promised that the tickets for the 12:01 a.m. show will be good for any other movie including the more expensive I-Max tickets. “They’re entitled to see any movie for any time,” DiOrio said. AMC will also offer refunds for concessions purchased for the movie, he said. And for people who left prior to passes being handed out, they can bring their ticket stub back and receive the same treatment, DiOrio said.

Todayâ€™s marriages as predicted 40 years ago arriving future and how it would affect our lives. He showed how we were fast forming a â€œthrow-awayâ€? society. This, in turn, would lead us to adopt a concept of transience â€“ a new â€œtemporarinessâ€? in everyday life as well as a mood of impermanence. This Age of Transience would soon affect our relationship with people, but also our attitude toward things, places, ideas, as well as toward institutions and organizations. He wrote, â€œThe people of the future will live in a condition of â€˜high transienceâ€™ â€“ a condition in which the duration of relationships is cut short â€Ś things, places, people, ideas, and organizational structures will all get â€˜used upâ€™ more quickly.â€? Permanent commitment to anything would become
passĂŠ. Before most of last weekâ€™s brides and grooms were even born, Toffler predicted that success in the marriage of the future would come to be determined by the degree to which matched development actually occurs between spouses. Love would be determined by the degree of shared growth, not necessarily by the giving of self. Yet, he goes on to say, â€œThe mathematical odds are heavily stacked against any couple achieving this ideal of parallel growth. The odds plummet when the rate of change in a society accelerates, as it is now doing. â€œIn a fast-moving society in which â€Ś the family is again and again torn loose from home and community, in which individuals move further from their parents, further from the religion of
Eisen Marketing Group takes three PRSA awards Eisen Marketing Group won three Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) Blacksmith Awards during a ceremony honoring Greater Cincinnatiâ€™s most successful public relations activities. All three awards were for Eisenâ€™s work with Neighborhood Foundations, Newportâ€™s public housing division. The campaign included a name and brand identity change involving the transition from what was known as the Housing Authority of Newport (HAN) into Neighborhood Foundations. Following the development of the new brand, new collateral material and Web site, ongoing public relations, events, and open houses for properties ensued in the year-long program. The advocacy campaign centered around
sharing information with the local and national community to proactively address negative attitudes regarding public housing. Neighborhood Foundations takes a different approach from stereotypical housing authorities. â€œThey take dilapidated or vacant areas and develop beautiful houses for sale â€“ which pumps tax dollars into local schools while beautifying neighborhoods,â€? said Eisen president Rodger Roeser. â€œTheir philosophy has earned national attention, and residents agree that the program is changing the face of the city and Greater Cincinnati.â€? Several months ago Newport was named the Best Comeback City in America.
possible to make long-lasting monogamous marriages work. Some will succeed in marrying for life and finding durable love and affection. But the others will fail to make even sequential marriages endure for long.â€? My dear brides and grooms, isnâ€™t it remarkably sad that what was predicted 39 years ago has now become true? May your marriage be counter-culture, your commitment permanent, your love enduring. And may
origin, and further from traditional values, it is almost miraculous if two people develop at anything like comparable rates.â€? Dire words! And now, almost 40 years later, our own observations bear him out. Human relationships have become more transient and the development of genuine love more tenuous. Love is now sought in serial marriages or clandestine affairs. In 1970 Toffler claimed that in the future those who marry will have an average of three marriages in their lifetime: the first for the expression of sexuality; the second for procreating children; and the third for companionship. â€œThere will be some,â€? he predicted, â€œwho, through luck, interpersonal skill and high intelligence, will find it
â€œWe partnered with EMG to tell our story and create an image that better reflected what we do,â€?said Neighborhood Foundations deputy director Linda Fields. â€œWe donâ€™t operate in an old-fashioned manner. We take a very personal approach to what we do, to make sure our residents are successful, tax-paying citizens and great neighbors. â€œIn all the years weâ€™ve been doing the homeownership program, weâ€™ve never had a problem with a single resident. We infuse tax dollars into the economy, not take them away. We have wonderful residents, beautiful housing and a tremendous team. It was time to tell that story.â€?

your children find in your relationship an inspiration for their own.
The wedding season is upon us. It runs from spring to late autumn. Itâ€™s anybodyâ€™s guess how many weddings occurred just this last weekend. Todayâ€™s weddings occur in a sociological atmosphere quite different from that of a coupleâ€™s parents and grandparents. The current atmosphere weâ€™ve collectively spawned over the years is no friend of the newly married, or longmarried for that matter. Didnâ€™t we ever see where we were going? Someone did. In 1970 an interesting book, â€œFuture Shock,â€? was written by Alvin Toffler. He was a sociology professor at Cornell University who conducted research into future value systems. From this research he predicted what our culture could expect in the fast-

Got garden vegetables? Make frittata, slaw When we plant our vegetable garden, it seems like forever before it starts bearing. Then all of a sudden, Iâ€™m inundated with cucumbers, zucchinis and Rita tomatoes. Then Heikenfeld the corn Rita s kitchen comes on and weâ€™re eating corn every night. Iâ€™m not complaining; in fact, I feel more than blessed. But the thing is I need to clone myself just like I clone recipes for you. Anybody got ideas how to do that? Oh, and by the way, if you do figure out a way to clone me, Iâ€™ve got a few changes Iâ€™d like to make.
Frittatas are popular now: Mark Bittman of the New York Times has his ver-

2 tablespoons celery seed 4 cups real mayonaise 1 â „2 cup cider vinegar 2 tablespoons sugar Salt
Brown chorizo sausage in skillet, drain and crumble. In an oven-proof 10- or 11-inch skillet, melt butter and saute onions until translucent.

Pour half egg mixture into skillet with the other ingredients and stir. Add 1â „2 cup of cheese. Add remaining egg mixture, stir slightly. Add remaining 1â „2 cup cheese, stir slightly. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes until golden brown and eggs set. Garnish with sour cream and salsa. Serves six to eight.

Tips from Ritaâ€™s kitchen
1. Zucchini: Leave peel on if you like (I like). When packing for freezer, put more shredded zucchini in the container than you think youâ€™ll need. When thawing, push out excess liquid if using in baked goods. That way youâ€™ll get enough. 2. Donâ€™t overmix bread batter! That includes zucchini, banana or other quick bread batter! Remember, itâ€™s a â€œquick breadâ€? batter and that means to stir wet ingredients into dry very gently until moistened. Overmixing makes for a dense, sometimes gooey, bread with â€œtunnels.â€?
Delicious drinks that lower blood pressure
Water (you knew that, right?), hibiscus tea (most herb teas contain hibiscus), grape juice. Careful with energy drinks â€“ check caffeine content, which can elevate blood pressure. Pucker up: A squeeze of lemon juice in your first glass of water helps form and repair collagen, is a gentle liver cleanser, and is great for your immune system and stress. Plus, the vitamin C helps your body absorb iron better.

One of our favorites was the Frittata OlĂŠ. We adapted a frittata recipe from Ina Garten, Barefoot Contessa, as a basis for our version of Frittata OlĂŠ. This is great for Sunday brunch with a Bloody Mary!â€?

Be a ‘deadheader’ in the garden! Now, when we say the word “deadhead,” what do you think of? Truck drivers think about a return trip without any cargo. And you Grateful Dead fans may think about yourself – Deadheads. But in the garden, deadheading has a totally different meaning. Deadheading is the art of removing spent flowers from a plant in order to achieve a few different things. The main idea behind deadheading is to stimulate more flowers. By pinching off the old flowers, it helps to stimulate new growth and more flowers. Some plants need a simple removal of the spent flower, where others may need removal of the spent flower as well as the stalk on which it’s growing. This process is used on both annuals and perennials (and woody plants as well). Deadheading is similar to a pinching or pruning
process that helps keep plants more compact, rather than getting long and lanky. removing Ron Wilson By the spent In the flowers and garden a bit of the stem below the flower, you’re encouraging a fuller plant. And of course, with more new growth, in turn, you’ll have more new flowers. Deadheading also helps to eliminate the plants’ trying to go to seed, which can take a lot out of the plant. Instead of producing seed heads, the energy can be sent to the plant and its foliage, and in many cases the plants will continue to re-bloom. If you have coreopsis, a light shearing will help stimulate these plants to keep flowering all summer long, as well as keeping
them nice and compact. Deadheading is also a way to help stimulate a second flowering period from plants that may typically flower only once. Summer flowering spirea is a good example. Once they’re finished flowering, lightly shear off those spent flowers, and within a few weeks, a second flush of new growth will appear, along with a second period of flowering. As with some perennials and woody plants, even if deadheading doesn’t help stimulate more flowers, it definitely helps to keep your plants looking a lot nicer for the summer season. So, if you haven’t been a deadheader this summer, it’s never too late to get started. Your flowering plants will be glad you did! Ron Wilson is marketing manager for Natorp’s Inc.

RAVENWOOD CASTLE: A MOST UNUSUAL GETAWAY Visit a “medieval castle” on a high hilltop on 115 secluded and forested acres of the most beautiful area of Southeast Ohiothe Hocking Hills! Owners Sue & Jim Maxwell are creating the most unusual guest experience of stepping back 800 years in a reconstruction of a “12th century Norman castle.” The Maxwells have traveled throughout England & Scotland & have always loved castles & the medieval era. Although the building is new, the couple has been collecting architectural antiques for several years. Each guest room or suite has a stained glass window, usually in the bedroom, a Victorian ﬁreplace mantel with a gas log unit, antique light ﬁxtures and some have beautiful old doors. The wood mouldings around the door & windows & the 5 stairways are inspired by centuries old motifs from Great Britain’s stately homes & castles. Most rooms also have a French door with a balcony, private deck overlooking the forest. There are also “medieval” themed cottages with ﬁreplaces and whirlpools. Ravenwood has
