Campbell 911 funding tied to property taxes By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
ALEXANDRIA — Campbell County has switched the funding of 911 dispatchers from a phone bill fee to an add-on to property taxes starting in November. Campbell County Fiscal Court approved the change by a 3-1 vote at the Wednesday, Aug. 7, meeting. Commissioner Ken Rechtin said he was voting no because the county was missing an opportunity to renegotiate the 2001 agreement merging the Fort Thomas, Newport and county dispatch centers.
The 911 fee ordinance eliminates a $3 monthly fee per landline telephone, and replaced it with a $45 annual fee for property owners per occupied resitdential unit or commercial unit. Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine said in a June 20 article in Thtodaye Campbell County Recorder the decrease in the number of landlines will result in a $500,000 annual operating loss for the dispatch center by 2015 if no changes are made. Prior to the vote, Charles Tassell, a representative of the Magnus Sieverding, 11, front, covers his face as Ben Morrison, 11, splashes him at a Highland United Methodist Church pool party for junior high students in Fort Thomas Aug. 7.

County seeks portable police radio fix By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
ALEXANDRIA — A narrower band width for police radio frequencies imposed by the federal government has Campbell County working to fix small zones where dispatchers can’t hear hand-held radios. The Federal Communications Commission requires all public safety and business mobile radio systems to switch to a different radio band width in a process known as narrowbanding, according to the FCC website. The issue is not with radios in police cruisers, which work everywhere, but with handheld radios, said Campbell County Consolidated Dispatch Center Director Dale Edmond-

son. In the tiny pockets of areas where there are difficulties, police officers can hear dispatchers, but dispatchers can’t hear the officer, Edmondson said. “There will always be spots that portable radios are not going to work,” he said. Because of the hilly geography, southern Campbell County is where many of these areas are, but they are spread out all over the county, Edmondson said. “Some are in urban and populated areas,” he said. Low spots in valleys and interiors of certain buildings often pose problems for handheld radios, and the issue is similar to zones where cell

said the way the county is defining a residential unit is unfair and needs to be reworked. For example, Northern Kentucky University does not have to pay the $45 per residential unit fee on each dorm, he said. “We will be meeting ... to discuss our legal options,” Tassell said after the meeting. Commissioner Pete Garrett said he was voting in favor of the ordinance despite it being only a second-best option. Garrett said he hopes to eventually put the 911 service fee onto another utility bill, possibly electric, because the landline fee was on a

Since 2001 the number of landlines the dispatch center receives funds from has dropped from 45,000 to 28,000, Rechtin said. Money from the county’s general fund has been covering a decline in revenue for the dispatch center, Rechtin said. “Over that time this county has put in $3.3 million to backstop this,” he said. Commissioner Brian Painter said right now the county is spending $260,000 annual to support the dispatch center out of the general fund. Painter said he has been examining the dispatch center’s costs and revenues closely. “It’s running on a pretty slim nickel,” Painter said.
ministrator Robert Horine said Edmondson has been successful in obtaining Homeland Security funds in the past because the grants are intended for emergency dispatching. If the grant money isn’t available, then Edmondson and the dispatch’s board will have to take money out of reserves to make the needed technology upgrades, Horine said. It’s important to maintain the systems to allow police to be safe while responding, he said. “Dale’s doing his job to make sure we have a fully functional system,” Horine said.

phone utility bill. Judge-executive Steve Pendery said the county’s ordinance does things like charge any single commercial unit one $45 annual fee even if it is a large retail store because coming up with a way to measure what to charge is fair is difficult. “There is no perfect solution,” Pendery said. “There are only less flawed solutions to look at.” Pendey said the dispatch center has had a flat budget for years, and has almost depleted reserves meant to purchase new radio equipment. Rechtin said the county was missing an opportunity to renegotiate the interlocal agreement the county has with the cities of Fort Thomas and Newport to pay for the dispatch center. The Campbell Consolidated Dispatch Center, located in

Highlands grad brings cabaret to Fort Thomas coffee shop By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
FORT THOMAS — For a night, Max Colvill brought his own version of a New York City cabaret night back to his hometown. Colvill, 18, and 15 other drama students in either college or high school, sang 22 different Broadway songs live at Fort Thomas Coffee Aug. 7. Colvill is preparing to begin theater classes at Columbia College in Chicago after spending his freshman year studying without a major at Pace University in New York City. A 2012 graduate of Highlands High School, Colvill said he wanted to bring to Fot Thoman experiences he had in New York.
“There’s a lot of stuff that happens in New York around cabarets,” he said. “There’s always shows at popular cabaret places like Joe’s Pub and like 54 Below and all these places around New York.” The singers for the Aug. 7 Fort Thomas cabaret included fellow drama students from Northern Kentucky University, Highlands High School, Walton-Verona High School and Anderson High School, he said. Colvill said he was performing a duet from the musical “Dogfight” and a duet from the musical “Spring Awakening” and the song “Who I’d Be” from “Shreck the Musical.” Holly Moss, 17, of Taylor Mill, a senior at Dixie Heights High School in Edgewood, was among a

group of friends to snag an empty table before a standing room only crowd lined the coffee shop’s walls. Moss said it was her final chance to see her friend Aaron Schilling of Fort Wright perform a song before he leaves for college. Moss said Schilling was performing “Proud of you boy” from
“Aladdin” with Sean Fanning, another friend. They are all participants in the Commonwealth Artists Summer Theatre in Fort Thomas. Olivia Ulmer, 16, of Fort Thomas, came to the cabaret night with friends to see a friend. “I’m really exited to see Hannah Laskey and Carly Weaver,” Ulmer
Golf outing to benefit CASA for Children email@example.com
COVINGTON — Swing for a cause Friday, Aug. 16, at a golf outing benefiting the Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties’ Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children. Registration is 8 a.m. and shotgun start is 9 a.m. at Twin Oaks Golf and Plantation Club, 450 E. 43rd St., Covington. “This is an important event because we’re trying to raise funds so we can recruit more volunteers so that every child in the system will have an advocate,” CASA of Boone County Executive Director Colleen Bohman said. This is the 13th year that CASA of Boone County has held the golf outing. Bohman said they wanted to team up with CASA of Kenton and Campbell counties this year because the two groups share the same mission. The Northern Kentucky groups are part of
the National CASA Association. Started in 1977, CASA is a network of 933 programs that are recruiting, training and supporting volunteers to represent the best interests of abused and neglected children in the courtroom. The volunteers are appointed by judges. Stacy Meyers, a former advocate, and current mentor and board member for the Kenton and Campbell program, said the advocates are “the voice of the child.” “So often these kids get lost in the system,” she said. “Attorneys come and go. There’s not a consistent person in their lives. The advocates develop a relationship with the child and looks out for their best interest. If a child has even one person in their corner, then that’s a huge accomplishment.” Meyers said she’s excited that the Northern Kentucky CASAs are coming together for this joint effort. For $125 golfers are of-
fered 18 holes with a cart, lunch, dinner, soft drinks, bottled water and draft beer. Foursomes cost $500, exclusive hole sponsorships cost $250, and sponsorship levels start at $100. For more information, visit www.casanky.com or www.casakentonky.org.

said. “They’re doing ‘Take Me or Leave Me from Rent.’ They’re going to be really great.” Rachel Zimmerman, 14, of Fort Thomas, sang the first song at the cabaret night – “The Wizard and I” from “Wicked.” “It’s just like a great time for a bunch of amazing singers to come together and perform,” Zimmerman said of the cabaret night. Fort Thomas Coffee is celebrating its one year anniversary in August, and has hosted art openings, musicians and performances by former residents, said David Valentine, who owns the shop with his wife Lori. “The reason why we really created this space was for coffee and creativity,” David Valentine said.

Retirement next case for Alexandria’s Trapnell By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
ALEXANDRIA — The police department here has one fewer Marine on staff with the retirement of investigator Howard Trapnell. Trapnell received congratulations and wellwishes from visitors including judges and officers from other departments during a retirement celebration Friday, Aug. 9. Trapnell said he spent 40 of his 46 years in law enforcement working as an investigator.

He has spent the last eight years working for Alexandria after serving as a military investigator. Trapnell has previously served as a special agent and chief investigator for several field offices in the U.S. Marine Corps. He has also conducted criminal investigations as a special agent for the Office of Inspector General of Veteran Affairs. Trapnell said it was time, at age 69, to give younger investigators in the department a chance to work on their own now. Part of his plan is to see some of the country in an RV, he said. “It’s still fun,” Trapnell said. “I’m going to miss it.” Trapnell said he still intends to volunteer for the police department and provide polygraph assistance. “I did all the polygraph examinations, and not just around here, but for many area (police) agencies,” he said. Trapnell said it takes a year of training to operate

a polygraph, so not many people are qualified to do that work. Thefts, homicides, kidnapping, sexual assault and financial fraud are among the various types of cases he has investigated. A misconception is police investigators are responsible for punishing criminals, he said. “I just determine what happened,” Trapnell said. If a person was falsely accused of something, Trapnell said he did his best to get them cleared.

Trapnell said Alexandria has had good programs he has been involved with including a citizens police academy and a crime scene investigation class for residents. The first case he ever worked involved investigating a rock thrown into a vending machine so someone could take a single 75 cent sandwich, he said. He’s advanced on to bigger cases since then, Trapnell said. “He was involved in the first case in Campbell County to convict someone on DNA evidence,” said Alexandria Police Chief Mike Ward. Ward said Trapnell will be missed, but because of his professionalism and willingness to mentor people there are now four officers certified in forensics in the department. “There are a lot of officers who have gained a wealth of knowledge in investigation from Howard,” Ward said. “He basically trained them.” Campbell District Court Judge Karen A. Thomas said Trapnell is a good investigator who always has everything done, correct and ready to present. “He has the answers to all the questions I might ask at all times, but the great thing about Howard is that he loves the people of Alexandria,” Thomas said. “And he loves working with the programs that the Alexandria police chief and department have.” Thomas said she has also been able to work with Trapnell on some citizens on patrol programs he has handled and he “mesmerizes them” as a great instructor. “It’s been my pleasure to work with him over the years,” she said.

County girls teams shoot for big goals By James Weber email@example.com
CAMPBELL COUNTY — Girls soccer teams in the county have plenty of goals on their minds as they start their regular seasons Aug. 19. Here is a look at local teams based on information submitted by coaches:

Campbell boys soccer teams hit the pitch By James Weber firstname.lastname@example.org
CAMPBELL COUNTY — Soccer pitches around Northern Kentucky will reach fever pitch when regular-season games begin Aug. 19. Here is a look at Campbell County area teams based on information coaches submitted.
The Mustangs had a strong 2012, going 21-2-1, winning the 37th District championship and falling in the 10th Region quarterfinals. Brossart plays at Scott County Aug. 27 and 29 and hosts Scott Sept. 3. The team did not submit a preview form.
Deron Hitch enters his second year as head coach still searching for his first win as the Camels battled through youth
and inexperience in 2012. Hitch expects a much-improved Campbell County team that is bigger, stronger and faster than the team that took its lumps last year. Leading that experience is returning starters Oliver Rice, Andrew Szovati, Zachary Schneider, Conner Case, Andrew Kramer, James Wilbers, Jacob Anderson and Michael Dumaine. Other players to watch start with Andrew Phelps and Colton Gearhart.
The Bluebirds, coached by Matthew Winkler, went 10-9-2 last season and were 36th District runner-up. He has a talented team coming back, led by returning starters Chris Garbig, Cole Davis-Roberts, Nick Breslin, Alex Shepherd, Jimmy Penrod and Jovid Llerena. Newcomers to watch start
with Dakota Tate and Devin Dupont. Highlands hosts Newport Central Catholic to open the season Aug. 20.

The Thoroughbreds went 79-5 last year but after getting two key seniors back from injury late in season, they went on a run to win the 36th District and advanced to the Ninth Region final. Returning starters are Jacob Hensley (junior), Ben Tierny (senior), Connor Hanneken (senior) and Matt Tolle (senior). Others to watch start with Pat Louis, Noah Connolly and Evan Brannon. Third-year head coach Mike McDonald is anticipating what he calls the hardest schedule in team history. NCC starts the season at Highlands Aug. 20.
The Mustangs have even more ambitious goals after an outstanding 2012 season in which they went 18-6-1, winning the 37th District and 10th Region along the way. They tied for first in defense, setting the school record for fewest goals allowed in a season. “Our minimum goal this year is to advance beyond semi-state, beating the winner of the Ninth Region,” said third-year head coach Brad Gough. “We have the talent and experience to challenge for the state title.” Keeping those sterling defensive numbers will be a priority this fall with three new starters on the back line. The offense projects to be fast and dynamic, according to Gough, who expects a lot of goals in the Brossart ledger. Brossart, which has eight seniors on the roster, posts six returning starters overall, including Sam Cetrulo, Megan Dierig, Cori Ziegler, Abby Stadtmiller, Morgan Verst and Madison Linebach. Olivia Nienaber is the top player to watch. Brossart has a tough test at the start, playing at Clark County Aug. 19 and hosting St. Henry Aug. 21.
The Camels have a lot to look forward to after going 149-2 last season and falling in the 10th Region championship game in penalty kicks to rival Bishop Brossart. Dave Morris, who returns for his seventh year as head coach in Alexandria with a 6736-18 record, said the team has

the best overall depth in its history, thanks to a strong sophomore class. Team strengths also include speed up front and strong goalkeeping and defense in the middle. Leading veteran returners, senior midfielder Lauren Macke was first-team all-region and honorable mention all-state after scoring 20 goals a year ago. She is a college prospect to play at the next level. Senior forward Natalie Visse was second-team all-region after scoring 11 goals. In the back line, junior goalkeeper Bryanna Schroers was third-team all-region. Senior Brandi Rice returns at stopper and sophomore Holly Schwarber returns as the sweeper.
Melissa Hawkins returns for her fourth season as head coach. She returns four starters in Nicole Schowalter, Heather Schowalter, Maranda Walling and Morgan Tucker. Top newcomers to watch are Priscilla Michaels and Marquelle Spencer. Dayton has eight seniors overall to build around. Dayton’s first regular See GIRLS, Page A8

Thomas More Notes
» The Thomas More College football team was picked second in the 2013 Presidents’ Athletic Conference preseason poll. The Saints, led by seventhyear head coach Jim Hilvert, earned 10 of 36 total first-place votes and 248 total points in the conference poll to finish behind first place Washington & Jefferson College (271). W&J and Thomas More were followed by Waynesburg University (233), Grove City College (159), Bethany College and Geneva College (138), Westminster College (107), Thiel College (106) and Saint Vincent (40). A season ago, Thomas More finished with a 7-3 overall rec-
ord and a 6-2 record in the PAC. The Saints dropped three of their first four games, but closed out the season on a six game-winning streak. During the winning streak, Thomas More outscored its opponents by an average of 39.2 points per game to 8.8 points per game, including a 75-6 win over acrossthe-river rival, the College of Mount St. Joseph, in Bridge Bowl XVII. The Saints open the 2013 season on Sept. 7 when they travel to Columbus, Ohio, to play Capital University.
» The Northern Kentucky University women’s soccer team is picked to finish eighth in the Atlantic Sun Conference preseason coaches poll. Florida Gulf Coast University was chosen as the favorite to win the conference with 95 total points and collected five first-place
votes. Jacksonville was selected to finish second, while East Tennessee State and Mercer tied for third. “The Atlantic Sun is an outstanding league for women’s soccer,” NKU head coach Bob Sheehan said. “As we enter our second year of Division I reclassification, we are looking for our student-athletes to continue to develop both individually and as a team.” NKU finished its inaugural NCAA Division I season 6-11 overall and 3-6 in the A-Sun on the way to a seventh place finish in the conference. Senior Megan Frye earned second team All-Atlantic Sun Conference honors after leading the Norse in goals (6) and total points (15) last season. The Norse open the regular-season Aug. 23 against Robert Morris in Moon Township, Pa.

» Freedom starter Dan Osterbrock (1-1) turned in the first nine-inning complete game for the Freedom this season leading them to a 7-3 win Sunday night over the Rockford Aviators at Aviators Stadium. Osterbrock allowed eight
hits on three runs. He also struck out five. The Freedom supported Osterbrock early in the game with a three run first inning. Jeremy Hamilton drew a two out walk and later scored on an RBI double by Jacob Tanis. Jim Jacquot and Byron Wiley followed with RBI singles giving the Freedom a 3-0 lead. With the Freedom leading 3-1 in the seventh, Aljay Davis produced an RBI double and Hamilton had a sacrifice fly giving the Freedom a 5-1 lead. In the ninth, Jacquot hit a two-run homer over the centerfield wall pushing the lead to 7-1. It was Jacquot’s fifth home run of the season. Jacquot finished 2-5 with three RBI’s. Florence is home Thursday, Aug. 15, then again from Aug. 21-25. Aug. 21 is a doubleheader starting at 5:45 p.m. (each game is seven innings).

Trap team takes aim at titles By James Weber firstname.lastname@example.org
Trap shooting requires near perfection to win, but instead of feeling pressure, local students feel nothing but fun when they’re competing. Northern Kentucky’s scholastic trap shooting team has had another strong summer as they are taking aim in several tournaments. In trap shooting, a circular clay target, or “bird,” is thrown out in front of the shooter from random directions. Students have to shoot with it a rifle from16 yards away. “We have had an outstanding year so far in the first three competitions,” said Dennis Menning, head coach of the team. The team practices at the Bob White Club in Claryville near Campbell County High School. Members travel from all over Northern Kentucky to participate. Nationals was July 1920 in Sparta, Ill. at the renowned World Shooting Center, which has 120 trap fields spread out over three miles. More than 2,000 kids participated. “Vendors from all across the country will be there to display the latest in shooting equipment,” Menning said before the event. “It promises to bring out the best in all the shooters competing there. The kids will be able to meet other kids from across the nation and make lasting friendships. It is the granddaddy of all

shoots.” In a standard competition, each shooter has 200 targets, with a five-person team aiming for a perfect score of 1,000. “It takes a lot of dedication and focus and keeping your composure when you miss a bird,” said Tanner Hamilton of Campbell County. “You tell yourself you’ll hit the next one. You just have to remember the fundamentals of shooting and get your rhythm going…I just love everything about it. You have the sense of accomplishment when you win something.” At the regional meet in April, three local quintets brought home trophies. The varsity team of Kyle Sears, Alex Wolfert, A.J. Hickey, Grant Stew-
art and Thomas Schnitzler won its division with a 910 out of 1,000. The intermediate division team took second place with a 917. They are Jacob Bechtold, Tyler Allphin, Tanner Hamilton, Dakota Brashear and Mitch Knasel. The junior varsity team finished third with 913, paced by Brennan Kamer, Blake Hensley, Kolt Hickey, Bryce Herbst and Trey Downton. Tanner Hamilton took second place in intermediate with 196 out of 200. Dakota Brashear was third place in intermediate with 193. Tyler Allphin was second place in the rookie division with a 173. Several locals then qualified for the Ken-
tucky state shoot in Berea. The college division team won first place with 942 out of1,000, consisting of longtime club veterans Zack Meiman, Taylor Bisig, Quentin Penrod, Jacob Bechtold and Steve Flinchim. Meiman was first individually with a near-perfect 198. Bisig was second at197 and Penrod third at 193. The senior varsity team took second with 943: Nicholas Staggs, Alec Wolfert, Kyle Sears, Kolt Hickey and Amamda Snelling. The senior JV team was second with Tanner Hamilton, Trey Downton, Brennan Kamer, Thomas Schnitzler and Dakota Brashear. The intermediate advanced

team was second with 888: Mitch Knasel, Casey Appleman, Conner Richardson, Mac Krallman, Marshall Krallman. The intermediate team was third with 803: Tyler Allphin, Corey Schnitzler, Rebekah Schnitzler, Justin Johnting and Logan Meyer. The club competed in the Ohio state meet in June, taking first place in their divisions in the non-resident category. The varsity team scored 922 behind Trey Downton, Robert Schnitzler, Bren-
nan Kamer, Kolt Hickey and Grant Stewart. The JV team was first with 908, led by Kyle Sears, Andrew Temke, Harrison Marsh, Alec Wolfert and Nicholas Staggs. The intermediate scored 876 to win with Allphin, Brashear, Hamilton, Justin Johnting and Rebekah Schnitzler. In this meet, Hamilton scored a nearperfect 199 out of 200. Downton had 198 and Brashear 195. Rebekah Schnitzler had 95 out of 100 in her first round.

sooner rather than later as he enters 2013 with a 195-73-15 record with the Thoroughbreds. Last year, he had another strong season, leading NewCath to a 14-6-1 record, winning the 36th District and finishing as Ninth Region runner-up. NCC has had 14 consecutive winning seasons under Turnick. NCC hopes to keep that streak going on the strength of seven returning starters who all have two years or more varsity experience. Junior forward Loren Zimmerman leads the way up front. She was the team’s second leading scorer last year and a third team all-region selection. Midfielders returning include seniors Sam Bunzel and Alli Otten, and junior Michaela Ware. Bunzel was the team’s top scorer and first team allregion selection as well as
second team all-state. Returning starters on defense are senior Amanda Schabell, junior Erin Ackerson and sophomore Ansley Davenport, who was an honorable mention all-region pick. Three freshmen will be integral to NewCath’s plans: goalkeeper Megan Martin, forward Taylor Toller and defender Ruthie Barth. “We must capitalize on our overall team speed and experience in order to be successful,” Turnick said. “The development of our young talent will be instrumental as we will be asking them to contribute immediately on both offense and defense.” NCC starts off strong by playing at 2012 state runner-up Notre Dame. NCC then hosts Cooper Aug. 21 and goes to Ryle Aug. 26.

Setting mothers up for breastfeeding success If you think breastfeeding success is all up to the mother and baby, you’re wrong. It’s true that the actual act of nursing is between mother and baby, but to set a mother up for long-term success at breastfeeding, she’ll need help from the baby’s father, grandparents, friends, family, her employer and policymakers. The statistics demonstrate the struggle: In Kentucky, more than half of moms, or 52.6 percent, start out breastfeeding their infants. Our numbers are much lower than the national average of 77 percent breastfeeding at birth. Then reality sets in. Moms get home, and they have other children, housework, work outside the home, errands to run … and the breastfeeding
rates fall off. Just 32.5 percent of babies in Kentucky are breastfed at 6 months; by 12 months, the number drops to 18.9 Lynne M. percent. Saddler In 2011, COMMUNITY Regina BenjaRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST min, then the U.S. Surgeon General, released a call to action to support breastfeeding. In it, she wrote, “Given the importance of breastfeeding for the health and wellbeing of mothers and children, it is critical that we take action across the country to support breastfeeding.” While we still have a long
way to go, recent policy changes are making breastfeeding easier. The Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Obamacare, requires health insurance plans to cover lactation support and counseling. This means women with insurance can get lactation consultations and breast pumps (rental or one for you to keep) at no cost. There’s a catch, though: The provision only applies to insurance plans created after March 23, 2010. Many women are covered by plans created prior to this, which are exempt through a grandfather clause. However, as plans are revised, more women will be covered. If you are pregnant and plan to breastfeed, or are currently breastfeeding, call your
insurance provider to see what breastfeeding benefits you are eligible for. Provisions in the Affordable Care Act also support women who choose to pump breast milk once they return to work. Employers with more than 50 employees must provide mothers with a private place, other than a bathroom, in which to express breast milk. They must also give women “reasonable break time” in which to pump for up to a year after the child is born. Lastly, Kentucky law also protects breastfeeding mothers. State law is that, “A mother may breastfeed her baby or express breastmilk in any location, public or private, where the mother is otherwise
Business education or quilting in public schools?
I’m not in the trenches teaching public school K-12 students, but I parent a couple of them. I shouldn’t complain. Literally hundreds of hard-working teachers have made sure that both children received a solid education. I’m proud of them and proud of our schools. I wonder, however, if we’re not missing out on some golden educational opportunities. For context, our schools have our children as part of a captive audience nearly nine months a year, five days a week, 6.5 hours a day. Not every hour is particularly productive. My son learned about quilting in English class. My daughter spent many days on Egyptian history. Both children have watched popular movies on DVD or VHS during class time. There is one thing about which they have learned almost nothing in nearly 20,000 hours of formal education – capitalism. I’m sure that capitalism is taught somewhere in Northern Kentucky’s public schools. I’m not talking about instruction on writing a check, a special program like Junior Achievement,
or a discussion of capitalism versus socialism, as if they were equal. (They’re not.) I’m talking about intelliRob Hudson gent instruction on busiCOMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST nesses and COLUMNIST capitalism as mandatory, core teaching. And if I can’t get that, I’d settle for it at the tail end of an English class, in lieu of quilting. A child who understands businesses and capitalism never sees the world the same. The fruits of capitalism surround us. Literally every physical object, other than nature itself, came directly or indirectly from capitalism. When children see an iPhone, they see a way to text friends and play apps. See bigger. See a modern miracle which changed the world and came our way via profit motive and capitalism. When children see a magnificent new office building, let’s open their eyes so they see more than shapes and colors. If
we teach them, they will see the impact a courageous developer and her business will have on a community. They will see families with new jobs and stable incomes. Show me a better and easier way to expand a child’s horizon. With an hour and a Power Point, we can teach students about how the marvels of capitalism delivered most of our jobs and creature comforts, enhancing our quality of life. It would be easier to teach than Egyptian history, more relevant, and more fun. Imagine hearing true stories about brilliant business ideas, hard work, and overcoming long odds to achieve success which helped the world. If this doesn’t inspire you, let’s get practical. Education exists, mostly, so our children can get jobs if they need them. Think of basic reading, writing, math and science as one’s foundation. Capitalism and businesses provide the occupational framework through which we execute this learning. The pieces of our life puzzle don’t fit without it. If we’re not teaching cap-
italism because, as my son suggests, it’s “too political,” we’re in big trouble. It’s only the engine which drives our entire economy. If we’re not teaching capitalism because our teachers don’t agree with it or don’t understand it, which I don’t believe is the case, we’re in big trouble. If they say there are just no more instructional hours, we can make better choices with our time. We can continue to teach quilting, or we can seize a historic opportunity to favorably separate ourselves from the rest of the country. We can become the region which emphasizes business education and capitalism in grades 6-12 in our public schools. What’s stopping us?

authorized to be.” This means moms have the right to feed babies in public. We’ve heralded the health benefits of breastfeeding for many years, and that effect is shown by the increase in the number of mothers who initiate breastfeeding. But for long-term success, we need a shift in our culture – to a society that is more supportive of mothers who choose to breastfeed their babies, so that the good intentions of the mother who initiates breastfeeding at birth are easy to maintain with the support of her family, friends, employer and community.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Trash for Cash provides new outlook
As a church, we are always looking for different ways to raise money for our Souled Out Youth Group. The Trash for Cash fundraising idea worked out great because we were able to not only raise money but were able to give back to the community by cleaning up the area. We assembled a group of 21 volunteers that walked a 10-mile stretch through Wilder. Along the way we picked up roughly 40 bags of litter from the area. Many of our teens have a new outlook on litter and will think twice before just tossing trash out the window. Thanks for giving us the opportunity.

Trash 4 Cash – A perfect fit
When the Bishop Brossart High School Lady Stangs Soccer team was looking for a new fundraiser, we came across the Trash 4 Cash program. We initially considered a lot of options to raise funds needed for the general expenses of the team, but weren’t able to come up with an idea that seemed to fit. We wanted to involve the girls, avoid selling anything, and if at all possible, benefit the community. The Trash 4 Cash Program turned out to be the perfect fit. The team met, along with parents to supervise, on a Saturday morning and we covered 10 miles of Campbell County roadway. We were all shocked at how much trash was collected, almost 30 bags, but were very pleased to spend the morning as a team doing something worthwhile for the County.

LIKE FATHER LIKE SON The Guy family are cornhole champions

“I couldn’t have been prouder,” said Matt Guy of Alexandria, speaking about his 19-year-old son Bret winning the eighth annual World Championship of Cornhole last month at Turfway Park. Matt is himself an icon of the sport, a five-time world champion. “I remember when he was 4 feet tall and asked, ‘Dad, can I throw with you?’” Now that his son is the new king in singles, “It was as sweet a win as any win I ever had.” “Here’s the father-and-son moment,” he pointed out while watching a YouTube video on his tablet. It showed Matt grabbing Bret after his big win and lifting him. “I couldn’t quit crying, honestly.” Though both of them have been playing cornhole for more than 10 years, they’re not really sure why they’re so good at it. “The first time I ever played it was at a party I went to with a bunch of friends. I was like, ‘What’s this?’” Matt recalled. But they have some tips. “Figure out how to throw the flattest bag possible with clockwise rotation,” Matt said. “If your bag is flat and spinning clockwise, it’s going to slide through.” Bret stressed the importance of concentration. “You’ve just got to ignore everything around you, just zone in and focus on what

you’re doing. If you lose that, you lose the game.” “It’s like every other sport,” Matt added. “You’ve got to be mentally strong.” What is the biggest challenge? “The difference in the competition between when I started playing it and now is unbelievable,” he shared. “It used to be a couple good guys. Now everybody is good.” Does the sport provide much exercise? “It’s definitely a good exercise. You’re bending, you’re picking up, you’re walking. You constantly move,” Matt answered. “You wouldn’t think throwing a one-pound bag 27 feet would wear you out, but it will.”
The two travel around the country together, playing in over 40 tournaments a year. “We win money at it – which is cool – but we also spend a lot of time together because of this sport,” Matt said. “We make an unbelievable amount of friends. All the players are like one big happy family.” A total of 348 competitors from 23 different states took part in the eighth annual World Championship, which was sponsored by the American Cornhole Organization. “It was in Las Vegas for five years, it was down in Tunica, Miss., for two years, and this year was here in Florence,”

Matt explained. ESPN filmed this year’s tournament for “Kenny Mayne’s Wider World of Sports,” a show about discovering the world’s most exhilarating sporting events. “Kenny Mayne told me that the ‘19-year-old son of the 5-time champion winning’ was just a great story line for the show,” Matt said. Bret talked about his dream job. “I’d love to play this game and make a living out of it. I’ve not met anyone that has done it, but I think it’ll be possible in the near future.”

Sometimes I wish I was a high-tech person. Like a while back when I made dilly beans and took photos of the beans picked from my garden along with photos of the finished beans after canning. I still have the photo of the garden beans, but the finished beans in jars photo has vanRita ished and I Heikenfeld don’t know RITA’S KITCHEN how to retrieve it from my camera. I can’t take another photo because, well, the beans are all gone. The recipe makes four jars and were so good that we ate a jar and gave the other three away. But I promise you will love the beans, photo or not. I was blown away by the huge response to Tom W.’s request for a 7-Up cake that was published years ago in the Enquirer. The stories alone made me chuckle, not to mention how good all the recipes looked. I will share both in an upcoming blog. Today I’m sharing two versions: One from scratch, which Tom wanted, and another using a cake mix. Some folks don’t ice the cake, but others do so I’m sharing icing recipes as well.

Think twice about buying at your door
We’ve all experience it; someone comes to your front door trying to sell you something. But is it a good idea to buy from a door-to-door salesman? One area woman says after the experience she’s had she’ll never do it again. Jessica Jones, of Butler, Ky., says a salesman came to her door last February. “We were home and I got a knock on the door from a gentleman. He says he was selling reflective signs for your mailbox.” The company was selling the signs for $20 apiece and Jones bought one. Her receipt says it was sup-
reflective numbers for her mailbox. “I’m just aggravated. He took $20 from me that day with a promise of a sign that I never received. How many other people are out there with that same promise that maybe even forgot about it?” Jones asks. A check with the Better Business Bureau shows the company has received more than a dozen complaints, mainly from people who say they too never received their reflective signs. The BBB gives that company an “F” rating. When I told Jones about the Better Business Bureau report she said, “Wow, wow. It just goes to show don’t ever buy anything from a door-to-door salesman.” Such complaints are not at all uncommon. I’ve received many letters from homeowners who paid for magazine subscriptions yet never received anything. In one

I’ve called three different times and received promises of them being out to install it – but still no sign,” Jones says. Jones does have numbers on her mailbox, but they’re not reflective numbers so they may not be visible at night if someone calls for police, fire or an ambulance. That’s why she says she really wanted those

case a homeowner did receive the magazines but realized too late she had greatly overpaid for the subscriptions. In Jones’ case I contacted the reflective sign company owner who said he was busy taking care of customers to whom he had failed to deliver the signs. He says he got behind and blamed the weather for the delay. After I called he finally did get the sign put on Jones’ mailbox. So, what should you do if a salesman comes knocking on your door? You could refuse to buy, as Jones has vowed. Or, if you’re interested in the product, I suggest you go ahead and place your order. But, just as with Girl Scout cookies, don’t pay until they return with the product.
ALEXANDRIA — A financial windfall is coming to four school districts in Campbell County courtesy of an easement of a tax collection fee by Sheriff Jeff Kidwell. Kidwell has decreased the fee his office charges school districts to collect their taxes from 2.5 percent to1.5 percent. The rate decrease will save Campbell County Schools $174,000, and will also save money for the city school districts of Silver Grove, Bellevue and Southgate. The rate decrease will also save an estimated $25,624 for Bellevue Independent School District; $15,449 for Dayton Independent School District; and $9,994 for Silver Grove Independent School District. The total in savings for school districts will be $225,179. The change will not impact school districts including Newport or Fort Thomas because they collect their own school taxes, said Kidwell. Campbell County Schools Superintendent Glen A. Miller said he was “extremely pleased” with the efforts of the sheriff and the collaboration with the school district.

“The savings will help our nationally ranked Campbell County Schools to continue to provide resources for our students such as expanding technology,” he said. Campbell County is, however, experiencing a reduction in federal, state and local revenues of $1.7 million, Miller said. “Campbell (County) recently reduced expenditures by $1 million, so the efforts of the sheriff are greatly appreciated,” Miller said. Kidwell said his office has made changes resulting in savings that can be passed along. Some of the cost savings include staffing changes, he said. All sheriff’s office employees, who were on salary, are now being moved to hourly positions, Kidwell said. The sheriff’s office also starting using Professional Transport Services, a private company, to transport prisoners long distances, Kidwell said. For instance, the sheriff had to pick up a prisoner in Montana this year, and that previously would have required plane fare for two deputies and paying them for their time out of the office, he said.

Cheese, in moderation, fits into a healthy eating plan Consumption of cheese in America has grown over the years. In 2010, U.S. per capita consumption of natural cheese was just over 33 pounds, the second highest amount on record. The most consumed natural cheese types are mozzarella and cheddar. The International Dairy Foods Association reports there are more than 2,000 varieties of cheese. There are a number of artisan cheeses available at farmers markets and in specialty cheese stores. If you take a look at products on grocery store shelves you’ll find all kinds of items that include cheese. From
foods in the freezer case to those on the bakery shelves, cheese is a popular addition to Diane many conMason venience EXTENSION foods. NOTES Cheese is also a popular addition for home cooks. Cheese has nutritional benefits including high quality protein, calcium and vitamin A. Some cheeses provide nutritional challenges with their levels of sodium, fat, and calories, especially when consumed in
large quantities. A one-ounce serving of cheese is about the size of a 9-volt battery or six dice. If enjoying shredded cheese a serving is about one-fourth cup. Consider the following tips to get the most from your cheese choices. If you are concerned about sodium choose softer, less aged varieties including Swiss or Monterey Jack. For cheese with less fat, look to Parmesan, grated Romano, and part-skim mozzarella. There may also be lowerfat varieties of other cheeses you enjoy. Check the food labels. Those cheeses with a
bit more calcium include Swiss, Cheddar, mozzarella, Colby and Monterey Jack. In general, if you want to decrease the amount of cheese you eat; consider choosing one with a bolder flavor or texture. You may find you eat less of these varieties. Before adding cheese to sand-
wiches and other dishes consider whether the addition really enhances the dish. You may find you enjoy the sandwich without the cheese. Cheese fits well in a healthy eating plan when consumed in moderation. It can be a good source of calcium and important source of phosphorus and
zinc. Explore the many cheese options on the market to find the ones you enjoy the most. Diane Mason is county extension agent for family and consumer sciences at the Boone County Cooperative Extension Service.

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS —
The empty antique bottles seven-year-old Marissa Watson is finding in the woods around her home has her family full of questions about their origins. Since Watson started finding old bottles and other small decorative metal artifacts a year ago, she has amassed a collection of more than 30 pieces. Watson said the bottles and other objects including an old metal brooch pin all seemed “really old.” The idea to keep them was initially so she could show them off to family members and find out what they were, she said. “I thought they could bring back some memo-
ries for my grandma,” Watson said. Some of the bottles Watson has found are embossed with names of products and places. A bottle of Sloan’s Liniment is in Watson’s collection. Dr. Earl Sloan, a native of Zanesfield, Ohio, who died in 1923, mass produced and sold the popular horse oil liniment in the late 19th and early 20th Century, according to the Ohio Memory Collection and Ohio Historical Society. Another of Watson’s bottles with markings includes a clear bottle with “Wm Rippey” and “Cincinnati.” A 1910 edition of The Druggists Circular listed William Rippey of Cincinnati as a seller of lemon flavored com-

CITY OF NEWPORT, KY FINANCIAL AUDIT An annual audit report was given at the June 17, 2013 meeting of the Board of Commissioners. The following information is published in accordance with KRS 91A.040. the full audit is available for public inspection at the city building, 998 Monmouth Street, during regular business hours. Any citizen may obtain a copy of the audit for personal use, duplication costs will be $0.10 per page. Amy B. Able, City Clerk INDEPENDENT AUDITOR'S REPORT To the Honorable Mayor and Members of the Commission City of Newport, Kentucky We have audited the accompanying ﬁnancial statements of the governmental activities, the business -type activities, each major fund, the aggregate remaining fund information and the discretely presented component unit of the City of Newport, Kentucky (City), as of and for the year ended June 30, 2012, 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 of Newport, Kentucky'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 and the standards applicable to ﬁnancial audits contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States. 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 opinions. In our opinion, the ﬁnancial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the respective ﬁnancial position of the governmental activities, the business -type activities, each major fund, the aggregate remaining fund information, and the discretely presented component unit of the City of Newport, Kentucky, as of June 30, 2012, 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. In accordance with Government Auditing Standards, we have also issued our report dated May 20, 2013, on our consideration of the City of Newport, Kentucky's internal control over ﬁnancial reporting and on our tests of its compliance with certain provisions of laws, regulations, contracts and grant agreements and other matters. The purpose of that report is to describe the scope of our testing of internal control over ﬁnancial reporting and compliance and the results of that testing, and not to provide an opinion on the internal control over ﬁnancial reporting or on compliance. That report is an integral part of an audit performed in accordance with Government Auditing Standards and should be considered in assessing the results of our audit. Accounting procedures generally accepted in the United States of America require that the management's discussion and analysis on pages 15 -23 and the budgetary comparison information on pages 61 -66 be presented to supplement the basic ﬁnancial statements. Such information, although not a part of the basic ﬁnancial statements, is required by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board, who considers it to be an essential part of ﬁnancial reporting for placing the basic ﬁnancial statements in an appropriate operational, economic, or historical context. We have applied certain limited procedures to the required supplementary information in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America, which consisted of inquiries of management about the methods of preparing the information and comparing the information for consistency with management's responses to our inquiries, the basic ﬁnancial statements, and other knowledge we obtained during our audit of the basic ﬁnancial statements. We do not express an opinion or provide any assurance on the information because the limited procedures do not provide us with sufﬁcient evidence to express an opinion or provide any assurance. Our audit was conducted for the purpose of forming opinions on the ﬁnancial statements that collectively comprise the City of Newport, Kentucky's basic ﬁnancial statements as a whole. The introductory section, combining and individual nonmajor fund ﬁnancial statements, and statistical section are supplementary information and are presented for purposes of additional analysis and are not a required part of the basic ﬁnancial statements. The accompanying Schedule of Expenditures of Federal Awards is presented for purposes of additional analysis as required by U.S. Ofﬁce of Management and Budget Circular A -133, Audits of States, Local Governments, and Non Proﬁt Organizations, and is not a required part of the basic ﬁnancial statements of the City of Newport, Kentucky. The combining and individual nonmajor fund ﬁnancial statements and the Schedule of Expenditures of Federal Awards are the responsibility of management and were derived from and relate directly to the underlying accounting and other records used to prepare the ﬁnancial statements. The information has been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audit of the ﬁnancial statements and certain additional procedures, including comparing and reconciling such information directly to the underlying accounting and other records used to prepare the ﬁnancial statements or to the ﬁnancial statements themselves, and other additional procedures in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. In our opinion, the information is fairly stated in all material respects in relation to the ﬁnancial statements as a whole. The introductory and statistical sections have not been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audit of the basic ﬁnancial statements and, accordingly, we express no opinion on them.

They’ve gotten produce for smoothies and stir-fry and unlike their traditional garden they don’t compete with the wildlife. They don’t have green thumbs but this makes it easy and it produces food faster so they can replant a few times in a season. THANKS TO JETTIE MESCHER

The new album is special because it was written in one year, Rowe said. “So, it’s a little more cohesive as far as a sound, and we’re proud of it because we’ve developed a sound that’s a little more rock, but they still stick to their country roots,” he
Steffen. Songs on the album, including “Skin” and the title track reflect how times are changing and “going with the flow,” Steffen said. Steffen said he took some cues from how Bruce Springsteen puts together an album with story lines. “Tonight we’re starting to practice those songs for CD release shows and hopefully like a mini tour in the fall,” Steffen said.

NOTICE Please take notice that Duke Energy Kentucky, Inc. has applied to the Kentucky Public Service Commission for approval to revise its Demand Side Management (DSM) rate for electric service and gas service for residential and commercial customers and add new products for its DSM program available to customers. Duke Energy Kentucky’s current monthly DSM rate for residential gas customers is ($0.039396) per hundred cubic feet (ccf) and for non-residential gas customers is $0.000000 per hundred cubic feet. Duke Energy Kentucky’s current monthly DSM rate for residential electric customers is $0.001988 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) and for nonresidential customers is $0.001104 per kilowatt-hour for distribution service and $0.001070 per kilowatt-hour for transmission service. Duke Energy Kentucky seeks approval to revise these rates as follows: Duke Energy Kentucky’s monthly DSM rate for residential gas customers would increase to ($0.038919) per hundred cubic feet and for non-residential gas customers would remain at $0.000000 per hundred cubic feet. Duke Energy Kentucky’s monthly DSM rate for residential electric customers would increase to $0.002003 per kilowatt-hour and for non-residential customers would increase to $0.001131 per kilowatt-hour for distribution service and would remain at $0.001070 per kilowatthour for transmission service. The rate contained in this notice is the rate proposed by Duke Energy Kentucky. However, the Public Service Commission may order a rate to be charged that differs from this proposed rate. Such action may result in a rate for consumers other than the rate in this notice. The foregoing rates reflect a proposed increase in electric revenues of approximately $91 thousand or 0.03% over current total electric revenues and an increase of $31 thousand or 0.03% over current gas revenues. A typical residential gas customer using 70 ccf in a month will see an increase of $0.03 or 0.04%. A typical residential electric customer using 1000 kWh in a month will see an increase of $0.02 or 0.02%. A typical non-residential electric customer using 40 kilowatts and 14,000 kWh will see an increase of $0.39 or 0.03%. Non-residential gas customers and non-residential electric customers served at transmission voltage will see no change in their bills from this application. Any corporation, association, body politic or person may by motion within thirty (30) days after publication or mailing of notice of the proposed rate changes, submit a written request to intervene to the Public Service Commission, 211 Sower Boulevard, P.O. Box 615, Frankfort, Kentucky 40602, and shall set forth the grounds for the request including the status and interest of the party. The intervention may be granted beyond the thirty (30) day period for good cause shown. Written comments regarding the proposed rate may be submitted to the Public Service Commission by mail or through the Public Service Commission’s website. A copy of this application filed with the Public Service Commission is available for public inspection at Duke Energy Kentucky’s office at 4580 Olympic Boulevard, Erlanger, Kentucky 41018 and on its website at http://www.duke-energy.com. This filing and any other related documents can be found on the Public Service Commission’s website at http://psc.ky.gov. CE-0000565760
