Courthouse behind schedule, on budget By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

NEWPORT - The 103,700square-foot modern expansion of Campbell County’s historic courthouse is six months behind schedule, but remains within the original $29 million budget. The anticipated completion date is now March 2012. Construction managers and members of the Campbell County Project Development Board overseeing the project, discussed reasons for the delays in construction at a July 27 meeting in Newport. “We are about six months behind on our total project, and out of that, about three months of that have been for things like weather,” said retired Campbell Circuit Judge William Wehr, chairman of the project development board. It’s looking like March is the new completion date, Wehr said. Daily reports show the number of workers on the project upwards of 60 people each day and sometimes more than 70 people, he said. “So, slowly but surely we’re starting to make up a little time,” Wehr said. The project was delayed from nearly the start because the subsurface conditions of the soil beneath the construction site required extra communication about the design, said Jim King, a representative on the board for Kentucky’s Administrative Office of the Courts. King said besides “nit-picky things” he doesn’t have any concerns about the building after touring the progress. “It looked good to me,” he said. “I’ve been through every square inch of it.”

The two towers gracing the top of the new Campbell County courthouse expansion in Newport as seen from Fourth Street July 29 will reshape the city’s skyline. The existing historic courthouse, completed in 1884, is at far right in the background. Speaking as an audience member, Bob Compton, a member of the Campbell County Courthouse Commission, said he was concerned about rust on metal studs and the delays in construction. The courthouse commission owns the Newport courthouse. Compton said he feels compelled to speak up about his concerns even if it makes him unpopular with some people. “I believe the courthouse commission has a duty to get everything we bought,” Compton said. Chief Campbell Circuit Judge Julie Reinhardt Ward who is a project development board member said some of Compton’s concerns were legitimate and worthy of addressing. The rust is the most concerning, and whether the materials need to be replaced, Ward said. “The project is not going to cost more,” she said. It’s important the project is on target for a March completion

now, Ward said. The structural steel and frames for the doors are primed with rustresistant coatings, and the rust that people are seeing is in the metal studs for the walls, said Chris Greene, of CMW Inc., the project’s architect. “Anything that’s noncompliant, we’ll just remove it and replace it,” Greene said. The new courthouse addition will be ready to move into by the end of March, said Billy Lane, project manager for Codell Construction, the company overseeing the contractors working at the courthouse. “I think you’ve got a great building, and I’m not a bit ashamed of it,” he said. “I wouldn’t be a bit afraid to shelter there in a storm. It’s technologically advanced by a whole century over what you have here now.” For more about your community, visit www.nky.com/newport

Fort Thomas resident Alex Koehl is hitting the stage in New York City this month during the 15th annual New York International Fringe Festival. Alex, who graduated from Newport Central Catholic in 2007 and from the University of Kentucky in June, will be performing in the play “Civilian” during the festival. The play, which Alex and his classmates created in their staging history class and was originally called “Bringing it Home: Voices of Student Veterans,” was one of about 200 plays selected from more than 2,000 submitted. “I think it was a great opportunity for me to be able to work on this project to begin with, and now having the chance to act on stage in New York, it’s pretty awesome,” Alex said. The play, which is based on the oral histories of veterans who spent time in Afghanistan and Iraq, have returned home and are now attending UK, examines the challenges the veterans face when returning to their normal lives. Alex said since the topic of the play is so current, he feels that hearing the veterans’ experiences helps others understand what is going on with United States soldiers and the war. “Working on this project really opened my eyes,” Alex said. “Hearing the experiences of these veterans really gave me a new perspective on the war and what the veterans go through.” Alex’s father, Brian Koehl, said he too learned a lot from the play and is happy that Alex had the opportunity to participate in the project and now has the chance to perform in New York. “As far as his career goes, getting the opportunity to do a play in New York right out of college is about as good as it gets,” Brian said. “We’re very proud of what he has accomplished.” Alex, who earned a bachelors degree in theater, said he’s been involved in acting since grade school after watching his father perform in community theater plays. After seeing how much his father enjoyed it, Alex said he decided to try out acting and hasn’t stopped since. “I found out that I really enjoy acting and later decided to make it my career,” Alex said. “I’ve always had the full support of my

Friends rally around injured Alexandria boy By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

ALEXANDRIA - Friends and relatives of 7-year-old Casen Shrock are raising money to pay for the Alexandria boy’s ongoing care as he recovers from a brain injury. Shrock was riding his bicycle in his Alexandria driveway April 3 when a tree fell on top of him and he had to be flown by helicopter to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, said his grandfather Larry Wiedemann of Alexandria. The Shrock family had just moved to Alexandria a year ago after living for

many years in Fort Thomas, Wiedemann said. Surgery required the removal of two skull bone plates on the right and left side of Shrock’s head to relieve building pressure, he said. Shrock has been home since July 13. He is alert but unable to speak yet, Wiedemann said. Doctors say it often takes a full year of recovery from a brain injury before the lasting effects of the injury are clear, he said. An Aug. 20 spaghetti diner and raffle benefit at the Newport Elks Lodge 273 in Cold Spring has been planned. Donations are being accepted in order to defray medical expenses and the cost of ongoing inhome care that insurance doesn’t completely cover, said Shrock’s grandmother Linda Wiedemann.

Baker said she is one of many people taking time to sit with Shrock. Baker said she stops by the family’s home to do what she can about twice a week. Baker said her class took up a collection for Shrock

immediately after the accident and the students were all worried and asking questions about him. Despite Shrock’s absence because of the accident, he was honored as student of the week by the school, she said. The class also created a memory book with inscriptions from each of his friends, Baker said. “He’s funny, and he has always had this beautiful smile and these big brown eyes,” Baker said. Baker said she is one of several people helping plan the Aug. 20 benefit for Shrock. “I wanted to make a point of letting them know that we’re not going to forget about it just because he’s out of the woods,” she said. “This is a little boy who needs a lot of help. He’s got a lot of healing to do.”

Officials get review of sewer district financial burden for counties By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

BURLINGTON - A county commissioner’s question about the possibility of running Northern Kentucky’s sewer district as county districts, at the Aug. 11 meeting of Boone, Campbell and Kenton fiscal courts, led to a discussion of whether smaller is better than bigger when it comes to complying with federal laws. Sanitation District No. 1 of Northern Kentucky was one of three 20-minute presentations as members of all three fiscal courts met to discuss and learn about the region’s bus system, sewer systems and regional 911 dispatching possibilities during the meeting in the clubhouse of Boone Links Golf Course. At the end of SD1’s presentation, Campbell County Commissioner Brian Painter said St. Louis and Cincinnati have big urban sewer districts, and wondered if Northern Kentucky was approaching the issue of compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the state cor-

way under EPA guidelines if Northern Kentucky didn’t have one big sewer district. “Ever thought of the advantages of splitting back into individual counties?” he said. That could extend compliance dates and be a cheaper option by giving more time, Painter said. The EPA is getting to smaller communities after the big communities, and some smaller communities are already signing consent decrees, said Jack Bender, an attorney for SD1. If Northern Kentucky had 33 different communities all with their own treatment plants the region might be able to deal with the EPA individually as smaller entities per Painter’s suggestion, Bender said. But, there are three main treatment plans operated by SD1, so the EPA views Northern Kentucky as one sewer system whether it’s in one district or multiple districts, Bender said. Smaller cities including Jeffersonville, Ind., New Albany, Ind., and Winchester, Ky., have all had to sign consent decrees with the EPA to comply with the fed-

New law, director search

Kentucky House Bill 26, approved in 2011, goes into effect Jan. 1 2012, SD1's interim executive director Mark W. Wurschmidt said. The new law requires any rate increases greater than 5 percent to be approved by two of three fiscal courts, and not only by SD1's eight-member board, he said. The law also requires SD1 to post all their financial information in a searchable database that must be updated monthly, Wurschmidt said. Wurschmidt said the search for a new executive director for SD1 remains under way. "It's my understanding that there's a short list, and they are conducting interviews," he said. Boone County Judgeexecutive Gary Moore said all the people being interviewed are external and not internal candidates. rectly. “Most of Northern Kentucky is not one big city,” Painter said. Painter said he wondered if there might be more lee-

eral Clean Water Act, Bender said. “And it’s because they weren’t moving fast enough,” he said. Saying ‘no’ to the consent decree SD1 signed with EPA isn’t an option either, Bender said. “Essentially they’re judgements,” he said. “You walk away, and the court is going to fine you.” Then the EPA is still going to require a community pay for the same level of projects, Bender said. There is a lot of movement to change laws so there is more time to fix the sewer issues and provide some financial relief to ratepayers who are bearing the burden of the expenses of the cost of the projects, he said. Kenton County Commissioner Jon Draud said there needs to be a new EPA administration political change in order to change the agency’s financial affordability model to help lower the bills for rate-paying customers. During SD1’s presentation, Mark W. Wurschmidt, SD1’s interim executive director, outlined the utili-

ty’s response to comply with the the federal consent decree. SD1 has until Dec. 31, 2025, to complete $1.2 billion worth of projects under the legally binding agreement, he said. Wurschmidt said there are approximately 95 combined sewer overflows (CSO) in SD1’s service area amounting to about 2 billion gallons of overflow annually. A CSO is where storm water mixes into sanitary sewers and causes an overflow. There are also 125 sanitary sewer overflows that

are illegal, Wurschmidt said. At least 85 percent of both kinds of overflows have to be captured or eliminated by 2025, he said. SD1 operates 1,700 miles of sewer lines in its service area and pumps 36 million gallons daily to water treatment stations, Wurschmidt said. “Regardless of whether we’re small or large, all these combined sewer overflows are violations of the Clean Water Act,” he said.

Barn, campground work started By Chris Mayhew

stall horse barn and camping area at A.J. Jolly Park, a Sept. 30 deadline means there’s no time for horsing around. A barn will be part of a new overnight camping area in the park near the existing 20 miles of horse trails. The work is on track for completion by Sept. 30, which is the deadline to spend money from a federal grant, said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine. “You don’t pay the contractors until the work is complete, so that has been the challenge,” Horine said. Construction of the 28stall pole barn began Monday, Aug. 15, he said. In addition to the horse barn, there will be 12 concrete pads for recreational vehicles and space for horse trailers, Horine said. “And those campsites will all be equipped with water and electric hookups,” he said. The new facility is being built in what had previously been a picnic area in the park near the horse trails, he said. The county found out

there was $100,000 in federal matching grant funds available to the county for the project in April through Kentucky’s Recreational Trails Program, Horine said. Work done by the county road department including grading and stone work to prepare the barn’s foundation counts as the required 20 percent match of the $100,000 federal grant, he said. Contracts in the amount of $129,014 were awarded to two different contractors Aug. 3 for work to begin, Horine said. One contractor will build the campsites, and another will construct the barn, he said. Linda Bray-Schafer of Grant’s Lick, a member of the Kentucky Recreational Trails Program’s board, said the reason for the short amount of time for construction is because the grant money went unused the previous year after it was awarded to a trail program in Camp Springs. “It worked out to be awesome that we were able to keep those funds here in Campbell County,” BraySchafer said. Bray-Schafer, herself a

BRIEFLY

horse owner, said she is excited to see the horse barn and camps get started at A.J. Jolly. People will want to come to Campbell County to see not only the new camping area, but also to visit the many new miles of horse trails created in the park during the past several years, she said. There are approximately 20 miles of trails for riders who go all the way out to the end and back, Bray-Schafer said. Bray-Schafer said she, as well as other horse owners, are hoping to get one of the camping spots when the project is completed around the end of summer. “Fall is prim riding time,” she said. The RTP board has recently recommended extending the bicycle and hiking trails at A.J. Jolly Park in a different project, she said. The biking and hiking trail extension idea is awaiting approval from Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear, BraySchafer said. For more about your community, visit www.nky.com/alexandria

A planned addition to the Campbell County Animal Shelter in Camp Springs is in the final design stages, said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine. The planned addition calls for more kennels for animals and a new grooming and bathing room for the animals separate from the medical room. Horine said it’s likely the project will be available for contractors to bid upon soon. The county is under a July 2012 deadline to complete the work, he said. The project will be paid for partially with state grant money and partially with private donations made to the shelter. No money will be spent from the county’s budget on the animal shelter addition, Horine said. “I think at this point that project is more likely going to be completed in the spring,” he said.

Schools work to finish up construction projects By Amanda Joering Alley ajoering@nky.com

Schools throughout the Fort Thomas Independent Schools are working to wrap up construction projects before students return Wednesday, Aug. 24. Several of the district’s schools have been undergoing construction and renovation projects throughout the summer, but administrators expect the majority of the work to be complete before school starts and there should be no inconvenience for students or parents. At Woodfill Elementary School, faculty and staff are getting settled in their new building, part of a $12 million replacement of the old building. Principal Keith Faust said since students left in May, crews have completed the next section of the building, which includes 22 new classrooms, a computer lab, library and new administration area. “When students arrive on the 24th, I expect everything to be ready to go,” Faust said. “The cus-

The new administration area at Woodfill Elementary School. todial staff has done a great job getting everything moved into the new building.” The last phase of the project, which the district is hoping to complete next summer, includes replacing the current gymnasium. At Moyer Elementary School, a project to replace the school’s roof is nearly complete, along with a renovation of the school’s library, which included new carpet, paint and shelves. “I feel good about where everything will be when school starts,” said Principal Jay Brewer. “It should all be put back together by

then.” A new feature Brewer said he thinks the students will enjoy is a rotating gallery of the student artwork in the library, which was made possible by the school’s Parent Teacher Organization, who paid for the framing of several pieces of student art. At Highlands High School, Principal Brian Robinson said the finishing touches are being put on several classrooms that were renovated as part of phase two of the school’s renovation project. The recent work at the school also includes a facelift of the out-

Robinson said all interior work being done at the school will be complete by the time school starts, but crews will still be working on the exterior of the building until mid to late October. The next part of phase two that the district plans to complete when funding is available includes installing air conditioning in the south building and upgrading the building’s heating and electrical

system. Jerry Wissman, the district’s director of facilities, said only minor projects were completed during the summer at Johnson Elementary School and Highlands Middle School. At Johnson several areas of the sidewalk were repaired for safety reasons and at the middle school, crews renovated the cafeteria and converted the band room into a strings room.

Students cash in on voting slogans Summer vacation for Kentucky students winds down in a few more weeks and seven Kentucky students head back to the 2011-2012 year with cash prizes for creativity and writing skills. Secretary of State Elaine Walker has announced seven winners for the 2011 annual election slogan and essay contest managed by her office with support from the Kentucky Education Association Retired and the University of Kentucky Scripps Howard First Amendment Center, a division of the School of Journalism and Telecommunications. “Our goal is to make voting and the freedoms we are entitled to in this nation real in the eyes of these young people who are the voters of tomorrow,” she said. “Our winners and their classmates will cast their first ballot in a few years and students who participate can motivate their peers to become engaged, too. Voting is a precious right for all Americans and citizens who exercise their vote determine how we, as a Commonwealth, shape the future. ” Four high school students, one each from grades nine through 12, were selected by judges to receive either a $1,500 U.S. Savings Bond or $750 each in cash for their winning submissions of 600 words or less. Last year’s topic addressed the rise in the

number of voters who were registered as independents as compared to numbers of independents elected to office and how those numbers may be influenced by scant of media coverage. Winning essays were written by Natalie Farrar, a Larue County High School freshman from Hodgenville; Norb Wessels, a Covington Catholic sophomore; Travis Wilson, a Burlington junior who attends Grace Christian Homeschool and Emily Hicks, a home schooled senior from Fort Thomas. Voter slogan contest winners, whose entries were evaluated by judges and an online poll include the following sixth- through eighth-graders and their awards: Clare Kresse, who attends the Brown School in Louisville, won $500 for her first place slogan, “Your vote. Your choice. Kentucky’s Future.” Bailey Tungate who attends Lebanon Middle School won $300 for the slogan, “They fought for the right; the rest is up to you.” James Jacobs who attends St. Charles Middle School, also in Lebanon, received $200 for his third place slogan, “Vote now or forever hold your peace.” Students interested in entering the contests for 2012 or teachers who want the contest themes to include in their curricula, should contact Patrick Keal by email at patrick.keal@ky.gov or by calling 502-564-3490.

The Northern Kentucky University Fall Convocation will take place Aug. 19 at 9:30 a.m. in Greaves Concert Hall. President James Votruba will present the State of the University address, looking back on past accomplishments and forward to new challenges and opportunities. This year, due to construction detours, the continental breakfast will be held in the lobby of Greaves Concert Hall from 8:15 a.m. to 9:15 a.m.

YMCA accepting nominations NKU makes Forbes’ ‘America’s Best Colleges’ for annual Character Awards For the third consecutive year, Northern Kentucky University is ranked among the nation’s top higher education institutions in Forbes magazine’s America’s Best Colleges 2011 list, which was released this week. The list features 650 public and private universities from across the country.

Only about 20 percent of America’s undergraduate institutions make the rankings, which are exclusively prepared for Forbes by the Center for College Affordability and Productivity, a Washington D.C. think tank. Rankings are based on five categories: student satisfaction, post-graduate success, student debt, four-year graduation rate and competitive awards. NKU ranks No. 644 on the list and No. 204 in the South region. “Given that only a small percentage of institutions in

America achieve the honor of being ranked as one of ‘America’s Best Colleges’ by Forbes, we are honored to be included on the list again this year,” said NKU President James C. Votruba. “This recognition highlights our commitment to offering an educational environment that nourishes success and productivity both inside the classroom and out.” NKU was also included in the Forbes “America’s Best Colleges” list in 2009 and 2010. The complete list is available at http:// www. forbes .com/top-colleges.

The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati is looking for teens in Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati who are role models to others for leading a life by the YMCA’s core values of caring, honesty, responsibility and respect. They are role models for what it means to be a leader and an achiever, an advocate and a giver. And they are making this world a better place through their contributions.

These are the qualities of YMCA Character Award recipients, teens in the Greater Cincinnati area between the ages of 12 and 18 who are enrolled in elementary or secondary school during the 2011 to 2012 fall semester. The 2012 YMCA Character Awards Event is sponsored by Tom Gill Chevrolet, a business of character. Nominations are being accepted through Oct. 15,

online at learngrowthriveymca.com or by faxing the information to 513-961-3201 or by calling the Community Services YMCA at 513-961-3200. If selected, all 40 honorees must agree to participate in the orientation, and the awards event in April to be held in conjunction with Youth Service America’s Global Youth Service Day.

Project suggests community 9/11 walks As the 10th anniversary of 9/11 approaches, many of us are wondering how best to honor the many victims of that tragedy and its aftermath. To help answer that question, we at Abraham's Path are organizing 9/11 Walks all over the USA and around the world. Our goal is simple: To honor the victims by walking and talking kindly with neighbors and strangers, in celebration of our common humanity and in defiance of fear, misunderstanding and hatred. Think about it: Wouldn’t it be great if 9/11 became a day for Christians, Muslims, Jewish people, and everyone else to step over boundaries and walk kindly with ‘the other’, the way Martin Luther King Day has become a day for community service? What better way to build a pathway to peace? The original idea was to organize one big cross-boundary walk in New York City, but officials there encouraged us to sponsor smaller walks instead. Now the idea is for lots of people - people like you - to organize 9/11 Walks in their own neighborhoods. Now

RECORDER

Keeping children safe online As Kentucky kids return to school, I want to encourage parents to take a few minutes to talk with their children about the dangers that exist on the Internet and how to stay safe online. With the proliferation of smart phones, webcams and the Internet, kids today are at a greater risk of being sexually exploited or even targeted by online predators. According to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, one in seven kids is solicited for sex online and one in 33 kids receive aggressive online solicitations to meet in person. As a father and as Attorney General, I am alarmed by these statistics. Make sure your kids know to never meet an online friend in person unless you are with them. As a condition of use, make your children list you as a friend on their favorite social-networking sites. These are some simple steps you can take at home to keep your kids safe online. I’d also like to share with you all that my office is doing to make the Internet a safer place for Kentucky kids. After I became Attorney General in 2008, I streamlined priority operations within my office and created a Cybercrimes Unit dedicated to investigating crimes that occur online, and particularly crimes that target children. In three years, my Cybercrimes investigators have launched more than 230 child pornography investigations and seized nearly 283,000 child pornographic images and videos from the Internet. Our efforts have resulted in the arrests of dozens of suspects,

including the evidence in Kentucky.

Better solutions to create jobs In August 2010, Treasury Department Secretary Timothy Geithner wrote an op-ed for the New York Times titled Welcome to the Recovery. One year later, as the economy teeters on the edge of a double dip recession, Americans are still asking: where are the jobs? New unemployment data released last week revealed that only 117,000 jobs were created during July, short of the 125,000 new jobs needed every month just to keep up with population growth. The national unemployment rate ticked down to 9.1 percent, but only because of the number of people who have given up looking for work or otherwise dropped out of the labor market. To address this problem, President Obama announced last week that he will turn the focus of his administration to jobs. This is the seventh time that he has claimed his administration will make such a pivot to jobs, but the problem is that his policies are not working. For example, we were told the stimulus bill would create or save 3 million jobs and keep unemployment below eight percent. Since the stimulus bill was signed into law more than two years ago, more than 1.6 million jobs have been lost. Furthermore, the unemployment rate has been at or above eight percent for thirty consecutive months, the longest period since the Great Depression. The last two and a half years have reinforced that we cannot spend, tax and borrow our way to economic prosperity. And we only need to look at the example of Greece to see where we are heading if we continue to spend money we do not have.

We need a better solution. More government is not the answer. In order to foster a growing and healthy economy, Congress must U.S. REP. enact policies GEOFF DAVIS that will increase our COMMUNITY competitiveRECORDER ness, reward GUEST e n t r e p r e n e u r COLUMNIST ship and ingenuity. House Republicans are working to reverse course by passing bills to cut spending, and get government out of the way of our economic engines. This will promote investment, encourage entrepreneurship and allow the private sector to grow and create jobs. For these job creating bills to take effect, the Senate must pass them and the President should then sign them into law. House Republicans passed legislation to repeal the President's job destroying takeover of health care which would prevent over half a trillion dollars in tax increases and cut hundreds of billions in spending, in addition to easing the burden of PPACA on employers. The House has directed ten committees to review existing, pending and proposed regulations to identify the effect on jobs and the economy. We also plan to pass the REINS Act, legislation I introduced to require Congressional approval of any new regulations that have a significant impact on the economy. Affordable energy is critical to

job growth. The House has passed four bills that would increase American energy exploration in Alaska and off of our coasts to increase supply and keep prices low. We also passed the Energy Tax Prevention Act to prohibit the EPA from instituting a backdoor cap and trade program through regulation. We have been calling on the President repeatedly to send Congress the three pending free trade agreements with Colombia, Panama, and South Korea. To date, he has not done so. Finalizing these three agreements would create an estimated 250,000 American jobs by opening new markets to our goods and products. Finally, as Standard and Poor's downgrading of our credit rating last week confirmed, we need to continue to cut spending, reduce our debt burden and make the tough choices necessary to live within our means. While the House has taken some first steps in the right direction, and successfully changed the conversation in Washington from whether to cut to how much to cut, there is much more to be done. If the White House and Congressional Democrats are serious about getting America back to work, they should join Republicans to pass these commonsense proposals to get our fiscal house in order and get the government out of the way of job creation. Only then will Americans stop asking, where are the jobs? Geoff Davis represents the 4th Congressional District in the U.S House of Representatives.

Football Preview

Bluebirds make flight plan for 21st title By James Weber jweber@nky.com

FORT THOMAS – Devin Bruns has been so dominating in practice that his teammates have had trouble blocking him. The Highlands High School senior defensive lineman credits his teammates and coaches for getting him to that level. And he would love Mueller nothing more than for his final year in the program to end with another state title. “We’re flying to the ball and running more stunts,” he said. “I’m loving it. Everything is going great. We’re ready to take on other teams.” The Bluebirds are coming off their fourth straight state championship last year, a 50-0 shutout of Christian County in the Class 5A state final. They went 14-1 for the year and 58-2 in four years at the 5A level. Highlands is trying to become only the second team to win five straight state titles. Head coach Dale Mueller, who is never shy with praise for his team, said the Bluebirds have been more focused than ever this year. “We have really been pleased with the players, how hard they’re trying, the attitude they’ve got, and how great they’re playing,” he said. “The leadership on this team is so contagious. These guys just want to practice hard and get better.” Bruns is one of the leaders of the defense, anchoring a line that could be even faster than last year’s unit, which had mostly linebacker-size athletes. “He is as hard to block as anyone I’ve seen. If we played him, we would have to double and triple team him every time,” Mueller said. Bruns credits his teammates and coaches for helping him get to that level. “The offensive line really got me ready to play last year,” he said. “They were some of the best linemen I went up against. I’m very fortunate to have such a good team.” Chad Bowden leads the linebackers and Drake Bruns the secondary. The latter Bruns is a University of Cincinnati commitment. After struggling at times in the regular season, the defense allowed 20 points total the last three games, including the gooseegg in the final. “It’s a big confidence booster,” Bowden said. “This year I think we’ll be the best defensive team Highlands has ever had. We have a lot of swagger on our defense.” Mueller said he has six to eight players who could start on each unit on defense. For the second straight year, the Bluebirds will be in a full two-platoon lineup, with

The 6-foot-6, 235-pound University of Kentucky commitment returns for his third year as starter. Last year’s state final was a bit of a coming-out party for Towles, who rushed for five touchdowns in the first half and 165 yards overall. For the season, he had 880 yards on the ground and 18 scores, and threw for 2,471 and 21 TDs. He has kept improving through camps, including the Elite 11 prospect camp in California. He said his accuracy and quickness were major focuses of the offseason, particularly accuracy as he worked on having a quicker release. Towles is humbled to be considered an elite quarterback. “You grow up dreaming about that stuff; you dream you’ll be a top-recruited guy,” he said. “To have it come true and be there with the best in the country is an honor and a privilege.” Now his focus is on winning in December. “That is my No. 1 goal,” he said. “I’ll do whatever I physically can to get it done. I could care less if I throw five interceptions. The one main goal is to win a state championship. At Highlands, our success is determined on whether we win a state championship.”

Head coach Dale Mueller directs Bluebirds practice.

MICHAEL E. KEATING/STAFF

Drake Bruns, a UC recruit, leads the Highlands secondary. Jake True, Colin Seidl and Zach Harris lead the running back corps. True had the most carries of the group (68) last year. Harris dominated the freshman level last season, according to Mueller. Luke Turner, Austin Sheehan, Donovan McCoy and Jac Collinsworth are the top receivers. Sheehan, a senior, is arguably the fastest receiver in the area and is drawing Division I college interest. His 100-meter time at last June’s state track meet was faster than many other top football players in the state. He had 29 catches last year for 666 yards, an eye-popping 23 yards per touch. McCoy, last year’s backup QB, has impressed Mueller and Towles

MICHAEL E. KEATING/STAFF

with how he has adjusted to his new position. New receivers coach Cris Collinsworth, the former Bengal star, has helped the offense immensely. “He has been awesome with me, tweaking little stuff. He played in the NFL forever. He knows the best way to do things,” Towles said. Senior right tackle Aaron Robinson leads a deep offensive line. He plans to enjoy his final year in Highlands football. “It means everything,” he said. “Being a man, living up to what you got to do. It’s taught me responsibility, how to push yourself further than what you thought you could do.” The seniors all feel that way. “As a sophomore I didn’t think about it much,” Devin Bruns said. “They told me time flies by. Next thing you know, you win state and you go back to lifting and spring football. Now we’re in pads on Aug. 1. I love playing with these guys. We’re a fraternity.” Highlands left Class 5A undefeated in the postseason as the Bluebirds are now in 4A in the state’s new alignment. The Bluebirds expect tough competition in the new class. Boyle County has recaptured former glory to go 30-0 the last two years to win the 4A state title.

NCC reloads for repeat run in 2A

By James Weber jweber@nky.com

NEWPORT – Eddie Eviston knows how it feels to coach a state championship team. The head coach at Newport Central Catholic and his players now have to learn how to reload for a repeat run at a state crown. The Thoroughbreds team that went 13-2 Eviston last year and rolled to its first Class 2A state title since 2006 (fourth overall) was a senior-led group. Three starters on offense and six on defense return, leaving a Birkenhauer lot of new spots for players to lead the way. “I think we have some talent,” said Eviston, the secondyear head coach. “We have some questions that Hightchew need to be answered, guys that have to step up. We’re trying to figure that out. That’s what the scrimmages are for. We probably won’t answer some questions until we’re into games three or four.” The Thoroughbreds return one vital ingredient in senior quarterback Brady Hightchew. The multitalented three-sport athlete at NCC rushed for 1,166 yards and 16 touchdowns last year and threw for 1,654 yards and 13 scores. He completed 72 percent of his passes and hurled just four passes to the other team in 180 attempts. “I feel like this year we know what it’s going to take to get back to the state finals,” Hightchew said. “I feel like the hard work we’re putting in this summer will pay off, just like last year. A lot of people have to step up for us to be successful, but we have the athletes to do it. It will just take a bit of experience.”

Said Eviston: “He had to deal with a new offense last year, but he came in right off the bat and worked hard to understand the offense. He knows where guys need to be. Compared to last year, he has improved by leaps and bounds.” Most of NCC’s other weapons graduated, including Chris Kelly, who took his 1,870 yards and 32 scores with his diploma. Junior Dylan Hayes returns at running back. He averaged 8.3 yards in 34 rushing attempts and 11.6 yards in 10 receptions last year. Hightchew said Hayes will be fun to watch this season, a sentiment echoed by the head coach. “Dylan has really shown us something this offseason and preseason, and I think he will do very well for us,” Eviston said.

Newport Central Catholic gets set to run a play Aug. 10. Nick Woltermann is the top returner in the receiving corps. While the offensive line lost giants Jake Giesler and Jack Gruenschlaeger plus starting right tackle Nick Kohrs, the unit returns several players with veteran talent. Seniors Logan Martin, Evan Morse and Ross Birkenhauer and juniors Brady Thacker and Elliot Rust anchor a unit that helped the team rush for nearly 300 yards a contest last year. Morse, at 6-foot4, 245 pounds, and the 6-2, 255pound Rust are the biggest linemen in that group. Martin and Morse lead the defensive line and Birkenhauer is the lone returning starter at line-

backer. Martin is NCC’s top returning tackler with 82. He also had nine sacks and 19 tackles for loss. Morse posted 20 tackles for loss. “We have a lot of speed this year,” Birkenhauer said. “It is something we’ll have to do in every single game, use our speed. We have a lot of open spots coming into this year. People will step up and we’ll get the job done.” Said Eviston: “He understands what it takes and he’s trying to get the young guys on board. Ross is a quiet kid, but you can see in the last three weeks how he’s blossomed and become more vocal.” Hightchew anchors the secondary for NewCath, and junior Pete Collopy leads the linebackers. Woltermann had five interceptions

We want to go out on top.”

New head coach inspires Bellevue By James Weber jweber@nky.com

BELLEVUE - Mike Croley is returning to his roots in Class 1A. The new head coach for the Bellevue High School football team has 24 years of coaching experience with Kentucky high schools and is excited Croley about a n e w challenge with the Tigers. “I’ll wrap up my career here. This is my last stop,” he said. “I felt a need to start over, and I decided I wanted to do it in a place that values football. They have a great tradition here. I love the kids here. They’re hard-nosed, and they deserve good coaching, and I’ll give them everything I’ve got.” Croley spent seven years at Owen County and seven at Grant County, and was head coach for a total of nine years at those places.

He was then at Scott County for 10 years, and at times there was offensive coordinator and special teams coordinator. He was on staff for Scott County’s 2004 state final loss to St. Xavier. In practice, he teaches his players with a youthful energy and passion. “I am very intense,” he said. “I know how it’s supposed to be done, and I demand it be done right. We’ll do it until it is done right. What we’re trying to do here

This is the way every coach at Scott County coaches. I have a great coaching staff, and they’re learning my style.” Croley inherits a team that went 5-7 last year and lost to Beechwood in the second round of the 1A playoffs. Senior Jake Sparks returns at quarterback. He threw for 495 yards last year and rushed for 308. The offense must replace 1,000-yard rusher D.J. Slater. Sophomore Dylan Huff looks to take the load after rushing for 303 yards a year ago.

Seniors Shawn Schwienzger and Jordan McIntyre, and junior Justin Babb anchor the lines. Jordan Fogelman leads the defense at linebacker and will also contribute at running back. Junior tight end/linebacker Tyler Howe, junior running back/defensive back Cody Corman and Zach Poinsett are among other leaders heading into the season. Croley expects to use the runheavy Wing T offense at Bellevue. “We’ll only have about five two-way players, and most of them are the linemen,” Croley said. “That’s huge in 1A football. If you can prevent going down the

ironman path, you can do something.” Bellevue hosts Walton-Verona Aug. 19 to start the season then goes across the street to play Newport Aug. 27. The new coach’s goal is to win a state championship at Bellevue, and knows getting through his district is a good way to start. “All district championships go through Beechwood,” he said. “Whether or not we can compete with them this year, I’m not sure. We’ll see. The goal is to play good, sound aggressive football.” Bellevue did not provide a roster by publication deadline.

Brossart Mustangs rise to new class By James Weber jweber@nky.com

ALEXANDRIA - Just when the Bishop Brossart High School football team was getting used to competing at the Class 1A level, the program got a curveball. The Mustangs were moved up to Class 2A in the Reinhart Kentucky High School Athletic Association realignment effective through the 2014 season. Brossart is now in a district with familiar conference rivals in other sports: Holy Cross, Lloyd, Newport and Newport Central Catholic. While Brossart has had a lot of success in those other sports, all those opponents have more experience on the football field. “It’s going to be tough moving up a class, but I feel these guys will rise to the occasion,” said head coach Matt Reinhart. “We expect to have as much success as we had in the past two years.” While the Mustangs lost a lot of talent from last year, they are now at the stage where they have players who have been involved with the sport for many years. The seven seniors on the team have seen everything since they started in the program from abrupt coaching changes to tough losses to swine flu-induced forfeits. “We’ve had a new challenge every year, so this is nothing new to us,” senior Spencer Brown said.

Orth, a three-year starter, threw for 1,702 yards last season. Brown had 460 receiving yards and 10 TDs last year, and Reinhart considers him a Division I college prospect. “We want to fit our offense around Jesse,” Reinhart said. “We feel he’s one of the better quarterbacks in Northern Kentucky. Not many people know what he can do. He has great command in the huddle. These guys respect him, and he’s been a leader on the field.” Said Orth: “We’re really excited about the season. We’re doing real well on just communicating with each other. This year we’re almost like a new team. We had some changes, but we have a coach who has been around for a long time.” Junior Jacob Elbert was the second-leading rusher for the Mustangs last year, averaging nearly six yards per carry and gaining

New coach aims to build Camels By James Weber

jweber@nky.com

ALEXANDRIA – To get to practice, football players at Campbell County High School have to dodge and take a circuitous route around construction of new athletic facilities at the school. Once they get there, they take part in Stephen Lickert’s construction project as the new head coach has been in charge since January. While still a young coach, Lickert has left two programs better than where he left them. The former Highlands player had a lot of success at Dayton and Holmes and has now taken over the Camels. Unlike those other teams, the Camels do not have to start from the ground up when Lickert took over for veteran coach Troy Styer. “The kids have shown up every day and worked as hard as they possibly can,” Lickert said. “I’ve developed a really nice staff, and we have a solid foundation to build upon. Coach Styer left us with a really solid foundation, so all I had to do was come in and build upon it.” The Camels were 6-6 last year and reached the second round of the Class 6A playoffs. However, they are somewhat starting from scratch as they return only three starters on each side of the ball. “They want to keep improving and get better,” Lickert said. “Everyone is battling for a position and that competition makes practices really lively. It’s based on performance. The best player is going to play regardless of age. If they’re a sophomore, they’re a sophomore.” The biggest losses are on the high-powered offense, which

relied on the passing of Michael Kremer for three years. Kremer and most of his receivers have diplomas now, forcing a transiLickert tion in the team’s attack. Lickert has always preferred to run the ball, anyway. “We’re going to run the football and play great defense and special teams,” Lickert said. “We’ll throw it, still, but our objective is to run the football through multiple guys in multiple ways.” The QB job was an open competition in the first week of August. Senior Jeff Skinner, junior Tyler Durham and junior Tyler Walsh are vying for the job and Lickert said the scrimmages would play a huge role in that decision. The two players who aren’t quarterbacking will have starting jobs, with the 6-foot-4 Skinner able to play running back or tight end, and the Tylers at safety. Mitch Miller and Jake Johnston are senior tight ends who should vie for catches. Junior Grant Mahoney is one of the top receivers. There are senior veterans on the lines including Tyler Crowder, Mason Franck, Austin Mosley and Mitch Mefford. “Our strength in our offense is our depth,” Lickert said. “Our second-team guy will be just as good, and we won’t lose any slack.” Mosley will be a leader on the line. “It’s a new system,” he said, “It’s a lot of learning but we’re getting it done. You have to show the younger guys the faster pace

Campbell then hosts Milford Aug. 26 and plays at Newport Central Catholic Sept. 2. The Camels have a different district alignment this year. Campbell’s 6A district lost Conner and Cooper and welcomes Dixie Heights. Campbell will play Conner and Cooper in non-district games before diving into the always tough district schedule. Campbell then hosts Ballard to end the regular season.

They have been through adversity since their first year here and fought through it.” Said Brown: “The younger guys don’t realize how important they are. One guy goes down and they need to step in. They need to push us to be better as much as we push them.” Brossart will start the season Aug. 27 at Middletown Christian and debut at home Sept. 3 against Caverna. The early games will be preparation for that step up in class. “It will be important for us as seniors to go out on a winning season,” Orth said. “We’re not going to use this change as an excuse. This is a minor setback compared to what we’ve had.”

Replacing QB key task for Newport By James Weber jweber@nky.com

NEWPORT – The Newport High School football team lost some of their offensive weapons from last year’s 5-6 campaign – most importantly, standout quarterback Demetri Brown, who accounted for more than 3,000 total yards and 33 Rice touchdowns. Head coach Nick Rice wants his program to be in a position to absorb those types of losses. The Wildcats have the talent at the skill positions to make up for those losses, Rice said. It is just a matter of getting them the experience. Newport averaged more than 30 points a game on offense a year ago. The new quarterback is senior Rob Rice, one of the co-captains. Junior Daylin Garland, senior Andrew Merrill, senior Rob Washington, senior Matt Shephard and senior Marc Marshall are expected to be the leading yard-gainers this year. Garland had 21 carries and got 144 yards and a touchdown out of those, and also had a 78-yard receiving TD last season. Shephard had 32 carries and two TDs. Merrill had 16 receptions and three touchdowns last year. Washington had eight catches, but averaged 32 yards per touch and scored TDs on four of them. Those four are expected to be defensive leaders as well. Seniors Brad Messer and Bran-

ed a brutal 2010 season when Dayton went 0-10 and scored just 60 points. But Montgomery was also on the staff for Dayton’s magical 8-3 season in 2007, so he knows what it takes to win in the small river city. Montgomery will give it his best shot as he takes over as head coach this season. “We were very young the last two years,” he said. “It was a matter of getting the experience. We played a lot of freshmen and sophomores. They’re good kids, they do well in the classroom. These kids have grown up. It’s just a matter of hard work.” The offense will run behind running backs Thomas Rogg and Henry Horsley. Senior T.R. Smith

returns at wide receiver. Rogg and Horsley will also be key defenders at linebacker. Senior Jay Nellis and junior Connor Cadle anchor the trenches. Nellis is a veteran state medalist in track in the throws. Freshman linebacker Logan Brewer is also a developing talent on defense. Smith will lead the secondary. Perhaps the biggest loss from last year was one of the team's top playmaking talents, Dejujuan Walker, who moved to Oregon during the summer. “We will be very experienced as we took a lot of lumps playing with freshmen and sophomores, but now we are senior oriented,” Montgomery said. “We’re very skilled. We just lack depth and we have to stay injury free.” The schedule doesn’t do the Greendevils any favors as their first five games are

A few simple, tasty snacks to pack for lunch On the go chewy bars

Granola bars are so popular now. This is a nice, all purpose bar, good for breakfast on the go or to pack into lunches. Feel free to substitute just about anything for the chocolate chips, or use half chocolate chips and half dried fruit, nuts, whatever. 41⁄2 cups oats 1 cup flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 ⁄3 cup butter, softened 1 ⁄2 cup honey 1 ⁄3 cup packed brown sugar, dark or light 2 cups miniature semisweet chocolate chips or dried fruit (raisins, diced apricots, your choice) Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a 9-by-13 inch pan. Mix oats, flour, baking soda, vanilla, butter, honey and sugar. Stir in chips or fruit. Press mixture into pan. Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. Don’t overbake or you’ll wind up with crispier bars. Let cool for a few min-

utes and then press the mixture down again – you can use mitts, foil, whatRita ever. T h i s Heikenfeld will make Rita’s kitchen it easier to cut into squares or bars and you can cut the bars right in the pan. Let bars cool completely in pan before removing. Makes two to three dozen.

Grain, gluten and dairy free granola bars

From Julie, a Kentucky reader who works in a day care facility. “I got this recipe from a mom who has a child with allergies to grains, gluten and dairy.” 21⁄2 cups assorted nuts and seeds 1 cup dried fruit 2 cups shredded coconut 1 ⁄4 cup coconut oil 1 ⁄2 cup honey 2 teaspoons vanilla 1 ⁄2 teaspoon salt 2-3 teaspoons cinnamon Roughly chop 1 cup of the nuts and seeds. Place in bowl. Use your food processor to pulse the other 11⁄2 cups of nuts and seeds into a finer “chop.” Add to bowl. Add fruit. Stir in coconut. In a saucepan over medium

heat, mix oil, honey, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon. Cook until mixture bubbles, then pour over the fruit/nut mixture and mix well. Press into sprayed or parchment lined pan. Press hard and cool two to three hours.

Rita’s cherry pecan bars

Buttermilk pancakes

Out of all the pancakes I make, these are my husband, Frank, and grandson Luke’s favorite. Leftovers microwave pretty well, too. You can sprinkle on chopped fruit, blueberries, etc. while they’re cooking if you want.

Lemon glazed carrots

We are still pulling some carrots from the garden. They’ll taste great in a simple lemon butter sauce. If you use baby carrots, no need to slice. 2 pounds carrots, peeled and cut into 1⁄2” thick sticks 4 tablespoons ea: butter and sugar 4 tablespoons sugar 1 ⁄3 cup fresh lemon juice Bring 3 quarts salted

water to boil. Add carrots and cook until crisp tender, about eight minutes. Drain. Melt butter in skillet and stir in sugar and lemon juice. Add carrots and cook, until sauce is reduced to a syrup glaze, about five minutes. Serves six.

Low-interest ‘checks’ turn out to be not so convenient advantage of those checks you need to know about an unexpected drawback. Mary Lehman, Amberley Village, says she was very happy with the offer that came with her convenience checks.

You’ve probably received one of those so called “Convenience Checks” from your credit card company offering you a very low interest rate on money you wish to borrow. But, before you take

“I could get a zero percent APR by using these checks for 15 months. Now, there’s a small fee, I think it’s 3 percent. I was going to use it to refinish my floors,” she said. Lehman says she thought the checks would

be just like using her credit card. So, she used a check to pay the man who re-did her floors. Soon problems developed with the floors. “After the polyurethane began to dry, I noticed it hadn’t been stained properly,” Lehman says. Lehman called the contractor who did the work but he didn’t call back. “I called the Visa company up and thought I could just stop payment on the check, which is a reasonable thing to expect. They told me, ‘Oh, no. We can’t stop payment on the check.’” Although the credit card company would not stop payment, Lehman asked if

she could dispute the charge, just as she can dispute a charge on her credit card, but was told she can’t do that either. “They told me, ‘Oh no, you have no recourse with these checks whatsoever. These checks are totally different from a credit card.’” Lehman says she’s particularly upset because the letter that came with the convenience checks recommends using them to pay for such things as home improvements. Although the idea of not having to repay the money for up to 15 months is very enticing, Lehman says she wants to warn everyone.

“ A s tempting as these checks are, do not use them to Howard Ain pay contracHey tors. Take Howard! the extra time to put it in your bank first and then pay the contractor afterwards with your credit card,” she says. Visa tells me banks sending out convenience checks are responsible for their check policies. So, it’s important to remember the 60-day purchase protection you get with your credit card simply does not apply to convenience checks. Instead, consider these checks just like cash. Once you use them you have no recourse if the goods or services later turn out to be defective. Also, don’t just throw them away if you don’t want them – rip them up first so no one can steal them and use them. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

About 100 guests were in attendance as Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission celebrated its 2011 annual meeting with dinner at the Hilton Cincinnati Airport Hotel in Florence. Each year, Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission celebrates the individuals, businesses and organizations that have been instrumental to the organization’s success over the previous year. The 2011 Community Partner Awards were presented to the Greater Cincinnati Foundation, Funding Partner of the Year; Kenton County Fiscal Court, Community Services Partner of the Year; Barnes and Noble Booksellers, Head Start Partner of the Year; Housing Opportunities of Northern Kentucky, YouthBuild Partner of the Year; Tim Frodge and DeDe Dollar, Senior Employment Advocates of the Year; and R.J. Insulation, Weatherization Contractor of the Year. The agency also presents two additional awards each year. The Doris Wiedemann Award, presented to George Kent, recognizes a board member who’s displayed outstanding dedication and commitment to the board and to NKCAC. The Community Service Award went to Kathleen Tritschler for her personal initiative and efforts in advancing the work of NKCAC. The organization’s executive director, Florence Tandy, recounted some of NKCAC’s accomplishments over the previous year,

including: • Weatherization saw a 60 percent increase in the number of families whose homes were weatherized. • The Senior Employment program had an 85 percent private employment placement rate and received a national performance award from the National Council on Aging. • Food assistance at neighborhood centers increased by more than 250 percent primarily due to the addition of mobile food pantries in each county in the service region. • More than 3,200 individuals participated in a variety of educational workshops - from healthy relationships and parenting, to budgeting, credit counseling, job search techniques, and energy conservation. • In YouthBuild, 18 young men and women achieved their GED, nine enrolled in Gateway, and 18 secured private sector jobs, with 24 more young people graduating in August. • Nearly 2,600 volunteers worked in programs this past year, increasing the hours they spent by more than 55 percent over the previous year. • Head Start added two new centers, expanding its reach – and client accessibility – to southern Campbell County and western Boone County. Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission helps low income families and individuals develop the knowledge, opportunities, and resources they need to achieve self-reliance.
