Jogging along Woman runs to support blind, visually impaired By Chris Mayhew firstname.lastname@example.org
Fort Thomas — Charlotte Reed jogs or “race walks” quickly to stay in shape because she can despite a visual impairment. The Fort Thomas resident said she jogged in the Cincinnati Association for the Blind & Visually Impaired Aug. 11 Know You Can 5K because she supports the organizations’ goal to help people live inde-
pendent lives. “I know I can,” Reed said. “It’s educating the public that I can.” Reed was participating in the 14th annual 5K for CABVI, a not-for-profit, for the third time. She was one of 420 people running or jogging at Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum. Reed said she has some vision, but has Charles Bonnet Syndrome in addition to a different degenerative eye disease.
“Because of the Charles Bonnet it looks like I’m looking through a staticy TV screen as well as having no central vision,” she said. Participating in other 5K runs and walks is something Reed said she enjoys, and usually staying on course isn’t much of an issue as long as she can see other joggers. At Spring Grove Cemetery there were a couple of forks in the road
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.

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 compounds. Watson’s mother, Janelle Watson, said the family has gone into the woods regularly, about 100 times, on “bottle scavenger hunts.” “She is the spotter,” Janelle said of her daughter. Why all the bottles and old objects are near their house is a mystery, she said. Janelle said she wants to find out more about the history of the property where they live and possibly find out why the bottles, she said. Some of the nicer bottles are kept on a kitchen windowsill, Janelle said. “They’re very special because we found them together,” she said.

where Reed said she couldn’t always see the cones. She wasn’t sure of what direction to go. “Luckily at one point there was a jogger coming up behind me and he said ‘Hey, you’re going in the wrong direction’,” she said. “So I was able to shift and go the right direction.” Reed said she walks regularly. “You just stick on your sneakers and head out the door,” she said. “So, I really enjoy that.” Reed is also a Zumba instructor at her church. Her ultimate 5K goal is to “race walk” solo in the Cincinnati Flying Pig half marathon next spring. “My husband says he doesn’t want me to run because he is afraid I’m going to hurt myself, but I tell him I almost go as fast as most joggers,” she said. Reed said she volunteers for CABVI to give back, but has also used the services for low vision help including having them train her how to

It’s fun to watch the children go oh, she said, and make a connection people with disabilities or challenges can do many of the same things they do. “They may just do them in a different way,” Reed said. Reed said unless she is using a cane in a crowded space, which she sometimes does, people don’t usually realize she is visually impaired “I’ll have people who think I’m snobby because I don’t look them in the eye,” she said. Kathy Gottschlich, director of development and community relations for CABVI, said the organization works with people to overcome barriers and being told they can’t do certain things. CABVI’s services include helping people with access technology services, early childhood and youth services, support groups and a range of social services.

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.

This is a free-flowing artery thanks to tPA. It may look like modern art, but it’s a lifesaver. tPA is a drug that breaks up blood clots, keeps arteries flowing and helps limit the damaging effects of a stroke. Today, thousands of neurologists all over the world use tPA, but the discovery happened right here in Cincinnati at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center’s Comprehensive Stroke Center.

use her iPhone initially. “I have also recently learned Braille here because I’ve gotten to that point where I felt like I need that,” she said. Reed said she believes in CABVI’s mission to help people live independently. She has had to work to overcome other people’s perceptions about what blind and visually impaired people can and cannot do. Moving at age 19 from Stockton, Calif., Reed said she first came to the area as student at Northern Kentucky University. “I got my bachelor’s of fine arts from NKU and became a professional artist and teacher despite being told that visually impaired people could be artists,” she said. “I said ‘I’ll show you,’ and I did.” Reed has taught privately and in the summer enrichment program at Fort Thomas Independent Schools, and has worked at Baker Hunt Art & Cultural Center in Covington. She also volunteers with the Everyone Counts programs in schools speaking with elementary students. “I’ve really enjoyed doing that because it’s an

Vets set up restaurant ‘Taste’ festival
Head and Neck Surgery Associates, PSC
By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
BELLEVUE — Veterans programs and youth sports will benefit from a Labor Day weekend outdoor festival offering a taste of what some Campbell County businesses have to offer, with a side of entertainment. The Bellevue Vets will host its first Taste of Campbell County on the group’s parking lot Aug. 30-Sept. 1, with food booths from at least seven restaurants and live entertainment. Local craft vendors will set up booths on Saturday and Sunday. There will also be casino games inside the Vets hall, including blackjack. The primary beneficiary of the taste will be the Bellevue Vets Youth League, said Dennis Buschle, chairman of the Vets entertainment committee. The Vets have a ballfield behind the club where youth teams play home games. The idea for the taste fundraiser started with the goal of it being an event for Northern Kentucky restaurants, but it was scaled back to Campbell County, Buschle said. The idea is to make it an annual event and spread booths out across the Vets property – and not just the parking lot, she said. “Hopefully as it gets bigger and bigger we’ll have to use the whole field,” Buschle said.

Parents complete leadership training Community Recorder
Campbell County parent, Michelle Prodoehl from Crossroads Elementary School and Newport Independent parents, Bernie and Gena Combs from Newport Middle School and Wauneda Vaughn from Newport Primary School, were four of 28 parents from Northern
Kentucky who graduated from the Commonwealth Institute for Parent Leadership. An initiative of the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence, the nationally recognized 16-year program helps parents become more effective advocates for their children’s education. The parents participated in
three two-day training sessions designed to increase their understanding of school performance and how to improve it. The parents will be responsible for conducting a follow-up project designed to accelerate the academic achievement of students at their children’s school and to involve more parents in the effort.
The institute has prepared the parents to work toward higher achievement for all public school students by creating a new level of parent engagement. Since it was established in 1997, the institute has trained more than 1,690 Kentucky parents as education advocates. Starting this year, the insti-
tute’s name will change to the Governor’s Commonwealth Institute for Parent Leadership. For more information about the Governor’s Commonwealth Institute for Parent Leadership and how to register for the next institute, call 859-233-9849, ext. 231.

Standen named dean at Chase Community Recorder
Northern Kentucky University announced that Jeffrey A. Standen has been named dean of the Chase College of Law, effective July 1. Standen currently is Van Winkle Melton Professor of Law and associate dean for faculty at Willamette University College of Law in Salem, Ore. He has been at Willamette since 1990, rising through the ranks from assistant to associate to full professor. He also spent one year, as visiting professor and scholar-in-residence at the Uni-
versity of Virginia School of Law and another as visiting professor of law at the University of San Diego. “I am honored to be selected by NKU to lead the Chase College of Law, and I very much look forward to working with the faculty, administration and alumni to ensure that our students receive a world-class, practice-ready education that prepares them for every success,” Standen said. As associate dean for faculty, Standen’s primary responsibilities have included faculty development, program develop-
ment, academic standards and curriculum. He supervised the transition to electronic evaluations, created an LL.M. program, revised the college’s research grant program, instituted a faculty newsletter, contributed to the development of a part-time evening program, oversaw the summer school program, revamped the bar education program and provided oversight for curricular matters and faculty work. He will replace Dennis Honabach, who announced last fall that he would be stepping down after seven years as dean.
Is your business engaged in education? As a business you can support the education pipeline and be a key partner for student success. Simply put, successful students equal a quality future workforce. Not sure how to get involved? Now there is a new business engagement toolkit that employers can use to help them focus their efforts. “Our company has been committed to education for a number of years, but now we have a new toolkit that provides us with concrete information about programs that have measurable results and demonstrated impact in our schools,” said Jean Loftus of Loftus Plastic Surgery. “We want our commitment of time and resources to make a real difference, and having this toolkit makes it possible to do so.” This year, the Northern Kentucky Education Council’s volunteer Action Team that focuses on business engagement developed the toolkit which outlines ways in which a business can help impact student achievement. The toolkit provides concise program overviews, success stories, and ways to get involved. By using the toolkit, businesses can easily match their available resources and areas of interest with specific programs and initiatives. Graphic design for the toolkit was made possible by establishing a unique collaboration with Thomas More College’s Art Department. Assistant Professor Rebecca Ruehl Amann and her students donated both time and talent to the project for the graphic design. The Action Team, comprised of business, education and community leaders, is currently developing a strategic distribution plan to get the toolkit into “the hands” of business leaders. In partnership with the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, the team is identifying local companies that may be interested in connecting with neighboring schools and engaging in tool-
kit programs. Melanie Frey, regional business manager for Turner Construction and cochair of the Action Team, said, “The involvement of local businesses in high impact education initiatives is critical to the economic prosperity of our region. Our business community requires a prepared workforce which requires a community-wide investment and the support and engagement of local businesses in education. This toolkit shows employers how to do that effectively.” For instance, a Junior Achievement section helps corporate and community volunteers promote workforce readiness through easy-to-implement programs. Business Education Success Teams can partner with local schools to support student needs and develop activities that impact student achievement. Through One-to-One Reading, business and community volunteers can help struggling readers in first through third grade. Under service learning, organizations can help students develop critical problem solving skills, energize employees and learn the benefits of meaningful civic engagement. “We are focused on helping each one of our students reach their full potential and our business partners play an essential role in the education of our youth,” said Dr. Terri Cox-Cruey, superintendent of Kenton County Schools and member of Action Team 5. “With their support, our students will reach their college and career goals.” The toolkit was made possible through a grant to Action Team 5 from Vision 2015.

Alexandria family left Romania for graduations By Chris Mayhew email@example.com
ALEXANDRIA — Elena Humpert, 18, of Alexandria, never had to experience the limitations of living in Communist Romania – and for that freedom, her family is thankful. Humpert’s May 26 graduation from Bishop Brossart High School served as a reminderof why her family left Romania in 1973. Humpert said she was brought up with family stories about leaving Romania for a chance at a better life. Humpert’s grandparents Josef and Magdalena Holz brought

her mother, Brigitte, to Cincinnati from Romania at age 14. They left Romania with one suitcase each, and were not allowed to take any family photos or money. Fast forward to 2013, and Humpert is a graduate from Bishop Brossart with honors including awards for being in Spanish Honors Society, National Honor Society and Beta Club. She has accepted a fouryear, $5,000 annual scholarship to attend Northern Kentucky University. Humpert said being the only grandchild, there are expectations. Humpert said she can tell her grandmother, Magdalena, who lives in the house next door, is proud of her. “They’re always like ‘Oh my goodness, you did this!’ and you know always supporting me,” she said. Humpert said her interest in the family history is becoming serious. She wants to talk to her grandparents about their

experiences and learn more details. “I think I’m getting to the age now where I’m really starting to appreciate it,” Humpert said. Her mother said she spoke four languages including French and German when her parents brought her to Cincinnati on Dec. 22, 1973, but not English. Brigitte started school in English Jan. 3 at St. Williams Catholic School in Price Hill. “English was my fifth language, and I was very miserable,” she said. One thing Brigitte said she did understand, was that her family was in better circumstances. Her father worked as a brick layer and her mother worked as an apartment manager. The family had emigrated from Albrechtsflor, a village of 300 people in Western Romania not far from the Russian border, she said. Brigitte said she had a happy childhood, and was shel-

Brigitte went on to graduate from Seton High School, received a bachelors of arts degree from the College of Mount St. Joseph, and a master’s degree from Georgetown College. She works as a teacher in Campbell County Schools now, working to educate students in the Campbell County’s juvenile detention center. Brigitte said her par-
ents always emphasized how education is the most important thing a person can do for themselves. Brigitte said she has stressed the value of education to her daughter Elena. The opportunity to do well and have a chance to graduate was a big reason why the family left Communist Romania, she said. “I didn’t know what freedom was until I came here,” Brigitte said.

tered from most, but not all of the realities of the Communist state. Brigitte said she remembers an 18-year-old man from their town who failed in an illegal attempt to escape the country on foot. The army brought him back to town, she said. “They brought him back to the town and they marched him around to all the people,” Bridgitte said. Then the man was executed in the town square as an example, she said. “They knew that a lot of people wanted out,” Brigitte said. Their family prayed for 13 years and waited for a legal passport to leave the country, she said. Brigitte said her own fortunes changed in the U.S. after a woman who spoke German tutored her for two years, Brigitte said. “She was my savior,” she said.

their owners will be 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Diocesan Catholic Children’s Home Fairgrounds, 75 Orphanage Road, Fort Mitchell. Registration fee for one dog is $15 and $5 for each additional dog. “This takes our Relay for Life concept and expands it to involve our pets,” said Kila Hanrahan, Bark for Life organizer. For nearly a century, the American Cancer Society has raised funds to support cancer research at Relay for Life events. These funds have contributed to a 20 percent decrease in the overall cancer death rate since its peak in 1991. That means that more than 400 lives each day are saved. “For a lot of us, our pets are a part of our family,” Hanrahan said. “A pet can be there for the family going through something like cancer just as much as a human being can.” This is the first Bark for Life in the region.

goal for the event, Hanrahan said, is to raise $5,000. The Aug. 31 event includes a short walk, doggie games, top dog and dress up contests, team and community fundraising, music and food, as well as special dog guest demonstrations. Tami Costello, Crescent Springs, a Bark for Life committee member and cancer survivor, said she is excited about this new event. “I’ve seen the comfort a furry friend brings to someone going through cancer,” she said. “Dogs don’t ask questions, they don’t judge, they just simply love. I’m happy to be part of an event that honors them the way they should be.” She hopes that the event is successful and supported by the community so it can grow more each year. “Everyone has seen the face of cancer, whether it be a parent, child, sibling, aunt, uncle, friend, coworker or even a stranger in the store,” she said. “It’s time to put an end to this terrible disease and have fun doing it.”

FLORENCE — Kick up your boots ‘n’ heels to fight child abuse 7-11 p.m. Friday, Aug. 23, at the Radisson Hotel Cincinnati Riverfront in Covington. The Family Nurturing Center in Florence is hosting its 19th annual August Affair, Boots & Heels: The Remix. “Because of the success of last year’s event, our volunteer planning committee decided overwhelmingly to bring back our fun theme of Boots & Heels,” said Tracy Fuchs, director of marketing and special events for the center. “It’s truly a party with a purpose; to prevent and confront all forms of child abuse and neglect.” According to Jane Herms, executive director of the center, more than five children die everyday in the U.S. as a result of child abuse. “Every single day,” she said. “It is every adult’s responsibility to

protect children and confront all forms of child abuse and neglect. But this won’t happen until we change the conversation from fear and avoidance to full awareness and discussion of the prevalence and signs of abuse, the prevention strategies and the response.” The August Affair event is focused on raising awareness. Tricia Franke, of Cold Spring, has attended August Affair the last two years. “Awareness of any issue is the first step to creating a solution and making a difference,” she said. “I believe we need to do what we can as a society to provide stable, safe homes for children to grow up in and learn. I believe children who have a nurturing environment have a better chance at succeeding in life and contributing back to society positively.” Franke appreciates August Affair for raising awareness. In addition, “it is a fun evening where you can gather with girlfriends and make new friends,” she said. Keeping up with the theme of Boots & Heels, there will be items up for auction from the
genres’ biggest stars including an electric guitar signed by rock ‘n’ roll legends Eddie Van Halen, Eric Clapton, Santana, Slash, BB King, Neil Young, Pete Townshend, Edge, and Jimmy Page, and sheet music signed by Taylor Swift. Other collectibles include a framed print drawing signed by all six actors who played James Bond; a “Walking Dead” photo signed by the entire cast; and a photo of the 1980 Olympics U.S. Men’s Ice Hockey team with 21 signatures of players and coaches. Tickets cost $70 per guest in advance; $80 at the door, and include a two-hour open bar along with live entertainment with the band Off-RRockers, a silent auction of more than 100 themed packages and works of art donated by local artists. Select, hard-to-acquire autographed memorabilia and experiences will be available at the limited edition live auction with professional benefit gala auctioneer Susan Johnson. For tickets, visit familynurture.org or call 859-538-1630.

From pre-K to pretty amazing
In May of last year, Covington Latin High School released another group of outstanding, high-achieving students into the post-secondary world. One of those students was valedictorian Malory Thelen. Malory graduated from high school with a resume that many of us, with years of experience in the workforce under our belts, could look to Tess Hammons for motivaCOMMUNITY PRESS tion. Dave TheGUEST COLUMNIST len, Malory’s grandfather, has been very involved in Malory’s life from the beginning. He and Malory’s mother, Terri, credit Malory’s strong education foundation to her time spent in preschool. (Author’s note: Dave and Terri have been very humble about their own contribution, which was also essential to this wonderful girl’s myriad achievements.) Her educational journey began at Cathedral Child Development Center, across the street from the Thelen Cathedral Basilica and Covington Latin. It was here that Malory was offered a Montessori experience, and she flourished. Terri notes, “She has always been a self-starter, and this was the perfect setting for her. She worked on assignments that she found interesting, mastered them and moved on to the next challenge … I really think her self confidence was enhanced during her years at the Montessori school. Mike and I were so impressed with the program that Malory attended kindergarten at the school.” A quality environment

Malory Thelen gives her graduation speech from kindergarten at Cathedral Child Development Center.PROVIDED
during the birth to 5 years of a child’s life is absolutely essential to success later in life. The Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University points out in one edition of its series “InBrief: The Science of Early Childhood Development” that during the first few years of life, 700 new neural connections are formed every second. Early learning environments are places to grow a child’s cognitive, language, and socialemotional skills. When Malory entered first grade at St. Pius X, she was already reading at third-grade reading level. Her grandfather, Dave, writes “Her social, behavioral, and language skills all were developed early in life at the age of 3.” Malory has continued to shine. At 12, she was the youngest volunteer with the American Cancer Society and Be Concerned (a Covington-based nonprofit assisting low-income Northern Kentuckians in meeting basic needs). “Basically, it was regular tag, but I was always ‘it.’ I remember one day in particular when a newer student ran up to me during this game and
gave me a big hug for letting him play with the older students. A simple game had accomplished something bigger: I, along with the other students, had fostered a sense of inclusiveness and fun in that microculture of the playground.” Early childhood investment is gaining favor throughout the political spectrum. A recent Public Opinion Strategies and Hart poll found that 60 percent of Republicans, 64 percent of independents, and 84 percent of Democrats support a federal plan that helps states provide better early childhood education programs to low- and middle-income families without increasing debt. Transylvania University is now fortunate enough to host Malory through the next phase of her education. She is taking general studies right now, and her inspiring writing can be found on the student blog, Write on Broadway http://bea pioneer.wordpress.com/. Tess Hammons is communications and media coordinator at Children Inc.
Why are N. Ky. gas prices so high? As I travel the state, I am frequently asked what I can do about high gas prices and price fluctuations across the commonwealth. I understand the frustration with high gas prices. I understand how tough it is on Jack Conway hard-working COMMUNITY PRESS families. No GUEST COLUMNIST one wants to choose between filling up the gas tank or putting food on the table or paying a bill. And many of us rely on our vehicles to get to work, so that we can pay our bills. Be assured, protecting Kentucky consumers at the gas pumps is a top priority of mine. So, why are gas prices in parts of Kentucky between 12 and 20 cents higher on average? In 2008, we launched an investigation into the whole-
sale price of gasoline. Our experts uncovered strong data to suggest that Marathon’s acquisition of Ashland Oil in the late 1990s negatively impacted competition in the wholesale gasoline market in Kentucky. In other words, our investigation indicated Marathon has a regional monopoly that allows it to manipulate gas prices at the wholesale level. Even after approving the merger in the 1990s, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) warned that of the nine states involved in the merger, one state bears watching – that was Kentucky. Marathon, which bases its prices off of the Chicago Spot Market, is the dominant supplier of gas to retailers who sell that gas in Kentucky. In Louisville and Northern Kentucky, where the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandates that reformulated gas (RFG) must be used, it supplies nearly 100 percent of the wholesale RFG. Wheth-
A publication of
er you buy gas at a Chevron station, BP or Thornton’s, you are likely buying Marathon gas. EPA requirements account for about a 10-cent increase in the price of reformulated gas. Our investigation shows the monopoly accounts for the additional 5 to 10 cent difference. After we completed our investigation in 2008, we provided then FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz with our findings because this is an antitrust issue that falls under the FTC’s jurisdiction. The FTC did nothing. We even made our case to the U.S. Attorney General and the Justice Department’s Oil and Gas Price Fraud Working Group. Again, federal regulators have done nothing to address Marathon’s dominant position in Kentucky. I refuse to let this matter rest. Jack Conway is attorney general of Kentucky.
On Saturday, Aug. 3, at the annual Fancy Farm picnic in far western Kentucky, Sen. Mitch McConnell and his two leading challengers – Tea Party candidate Matt Bevin and 34-year-old Democrat Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes – took the three inside positions. McConnell should have concerns out of the gate with a 51 percent disapproval, and being neckand-neck with Grimes David in two recent Wolfford COMMUNITY PRESS polls. He handled the GUEST COLUMNIST challengers with tactics from a veteran’s campaign playbook and he realizes their handicaps. As McConnell approached the podium, roughly equally sized crowds representing McConnell and Grimes reflected the polls, yelling alternatively, “We Want Mitch” and “Ditch Mitch.” He refused to formally acknowledge either challenger (Bevin whatsoever), and instead reminded the audience of the commonwealth’s disdain for Democratic leadership. His speech cast him as a candidate against Obama, Pelosi or Reid, not Grimes. “Every liberal in America is out to beat us,” he said, pointing at the stable of Democrats who he said stand against coal, against liberties, and against lower taxes. In courting the state’s independent voters, he subtly touted his influence in the Senate chamber that would be lost if he were replaced, saying you can’t take care of national issues for Kentucky from the back-bench. Grimes is a more-thanformidable candidate hand-
picked by the establishment. As a fairly new political face with great potential, she’s taking the classic outsider’s strategy against what she calls DC – the “Dysfunctional Capital.” Playing up McConnell’s obstructionist label while he looked on and smirked inches away in the first chair, she declared with the best jab of the afternoon, “If the doctors told Senator McConnell he had a kidney stone, he’d refuse to pass it.” McConnell disappeared before insurgent Matt Bevin introduced himself to the state. Bevin is a Kentucky immigrant and first-time candidate who might develop a niche following with support from unique places. Can such a challenger defeat an establishment figure? Ask Rand Paul, the newcomer who ran under the Tea Party banner in 2010 to defeat McConnell’s hand-picked candidate. Both challengers benefited from the Fancy Farm stage, but they are on a Kentucky raceway familiar to the experienced McConnell since 1984. In a state with a closed primary and an early registration deadline, Bevin will have challenges in earning crossover support. Grimes has created her own muddy track. Last week, Politico revealed five issues she refused to discuss, though her party has taken clear positions on the same. She must run from her leaders and from their views, while simultaneously convincing conservative and moderate Kentucky voters why they should support her. You can bet the old war horse will soon exploit his opponent’s uncertain start to avoid that one fateful career loss. David Wolfford teaches government and politics.

FT. THOMAS — Despite its long tradition of championships, Highlands High School’s football program has never gotten complacent under head coach Dale Mueller. This year, after winning six straight state titles, the Bluebirds will challenge themselves in the regular season like never before. “We have the best schedule that we have had since I have coached at Highlands,” said Mueller. The Bluebirds open the season with a nationally televised game on ESPNU against Florida state champion University Christian. The game is part of the annual Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown, and marks Highlands’s first appearance in the season-opening celebration of high school football. The Bluebirds will get to show off their home field and supportive fans on a national broadcast. Then, Highlands takes on Campbell County and three quality opponents from downstate before its marquee District matchup with Covington Catholic. The Bluebirds also must travel to The Pit to face Elder, one of the top teams in Cincinnati and one of the toughest high school football stadiums in the country for visiting teams. “By the time we have done all of that,” said Mueller, “we are ready for the playoffs.” Stellar quarterback play has been a cornerstone for Highlands throughout Mueller’s tenure. This year, Drew Houliston takes the mantle. After spending time at wide receiver the past two years while waiting his turn behind Patrick Towles and Donovan McCoy, he has shown that he is ready to take control

of the offense. “He makes reads and delivers the ball like an NFL quarterback,” said Mueller. “The players and coaches are so excited because he is fast and athletic with a great arm, but especially because he is brilliant and makes such fast and excellent decisions.” Houliston has an experienced leader behind him in the backfield. Zach Harris is a three-year starter at running back and provides leadership for the offense. The defense is led by lineman Seth Hope, who has committed to play for Cornell University. Thomas Wrobleski and Michael Ayers also bring experience and strength
to the defense. Head coaches throughout the state have likely spent countless hours trying to figure out the secret to the Bluebirds’ success. The thing is, Mueller keeps it simple. The demanding schedule this year will provide Highlands with a bigger challenge, but the daily goals remain the same. “The key to our success is every player doing his best to get better every day,” said Mueller. “We have 96 players and right now about 50 of them are ready to play varsity football. We need more guys to advance into that category and the guys who are varsity players to step up another level.”

Depth, experience key for NewCath By Adam Turer firstname.lastname@example.org
NEWPORT — A head coaching change often comes with other changes, whether it’s to the roster, depth chart or playbook. Other than the man in charge, Newport Central Catholic’s football program is not going to look very different than the 2012 edition led by Eddie Eviston. This year, Dan Wagner, a former assistant on Eviston’s staff, takes over. The Thoroughbreds have an experienced roster and a system in place. “We are using the same system as last year,” said Wagner. “The only change is the name of the head coach. The coaching staff is back and has been here for a while.” Not only are the ‘Breds experienced this year, but the team has depth, something that is often elusive for Class 2A teams. Jack Sutkamp, Tyler Lyon, and Steve Brooks will be leaders on both sides of the ball, but NewCath has players who will be able to impact games on just one side of the ball. Mac Franzen, Matt Lenz, Jacob Smith, Tommy Donnelly, and Nat Kling will contribute on offense, with Wyatt Boberg, John Caudill, Kalvin Moore, Mie Runyon, and Kole Zenni leading the defense. “We should be able to play more players on both sides of the ball,” said Wagner. “We should be a little deeper this year.” Brooks may be the most physical player on the team. The offensive lineman and linebacker will need to balance playing tough and staying healthy. The defensive line is

the biggest question mark entering the season. The offense, led by Franzen, should improve on last year’s numbers. The consistency on the coaching staff will no doubt help the Thoroughbreds improve. “It’s the same things as always,” said Wagner. “Continue work hard, pay attention to detail, and take care of your assignment.” The schedule will prepare NewCath for the postseason. Although one of the smaller
schools in Northern Kentucky, the Thoroughbreds benefit from playing against some of the top competition the region has to offer. The program is hungry for another Class 2A state championship and will be battle-tested by the time the postseason comes around. “After our first five games against stiff competition and larger schools, we feel like we have seen teams as good as any that we will see throughout the playoffs,” said Wagner.

Brossart hopes to establish tradition By Adam Turer email@example.com
ALEXANDRIA — There is not much tradition in Bishop Brossart’s football program, which is understandable for a program entering just its seventh season. The Mustangs hope to create a tradition under new head coach Lee Teegarden, who took over in January as just the third coach in the program’s brief history. The team is coming off of a disappointing 1-9 season, but is just three years removed from its last winning season. The goal this year is to record the second winning season in program history. “A winning season would make this a very successful transition for the program,” said Teegarden. The foundation is there. Brossart has enjoyed success and won state championships in other sports. Football is still relatively new to the community, but there is excitement and support for Mustangs football. “The Brossart community works really well for the kids,” said Teegarden. “We really have the potential for great success here.” It helped that Teegarden and his staff joined the program in January. They had time to implement changes right away, rather than wait until the players put on pads in August. “We made a lot of progress in the weight room and we were able to install some things in the spring,” said Teegarden. The biggest changes to the program go beyond X’s and O’s. Teegarden’s first order of business was to instill his style of discipline, which affects the players on the field and in the classroom.

“The guys have had to learn a different way of life,” said Teegarden, the former head coach at Pendleton County. “We have increased their conditioning, discipline and expectations.”
Nine seniors return, eight of whom started last year. Quarterback Casey Pelgen leads the offense out of the shotgun. The Mustangs aim to be very balanced on offense. Running
back/defensive back Sean Tieman, wide receiver/defensive back Quinn O’Bryan, tight end/ defensive end Austin Shannon, and offensive/defensive lineman Charlie Britt also provide
senior leadership. The defense is based out of a 5-2 slant front, but with athletic ends who can drop into a 3-4 scheme. The Mustangs will have one of the more experienced teams in their district, but know that it will be a challenge to compete with Class 2A powers Holy Cross and Newport Central Catholic. The young program is still seeking an identity, and hopes that it can find one under the former Ryle High School offensive coordinator. “It’s up to us to go out this year and begin to make a change,” said Teegarden.

Colonels ready to keep winning By James Weber firstname.lastname@example.org
PARK HILLS — Dave Wirth hopes to have his Covington Catholic football team back in top form as he enters his fifth season at the helm. Wirth is 31-19 with the Colonels, several of those defeats coming to Class 4A rival Highlands, who once again will be an obstacle to overcome this year. The Colonels were 9-4 last year, falling to Highlands in the Class 4A state quarterfinals 2813. While preseason practices prepare the Colonels for their postseason rivals, they are also about short-term goals as Cov Cath will take things game by game. Wirth’s main task is replacing Blake Bir, who graduated with most of the school’s career and single-season passing marks. He threw for 2,851 yards and 38 touchdowns a year ago. Adam Wagner, a 6-1, 170pound junior, is likely to take over at quarterback. Wagner is a strong athlete and good thrower who will face the task of replacing Bir’s skill and veteran savvy. “Adam has picked it up faster than we thought,’’ Wirth said. ‘‘Adam is probably the second best athlete on our team. He has incredible speed, is tough mentally and physically, and defenses are going to have to be really careful rushing him, because if he gets out, look out.’’ The Colonels averaged 40 points per game on offense last year and Wirth believes the team can maintain that level of excellence. The CCH offense may be more run-oriented this year, according to Wirth. Luke Bir rushed for 555 yards and eight scores a year ago, and Sam

Dressman posted 489 and 15. They will gain yards behind a big, athletic offensive line. Cov Cath has three returning starters there plus two juniors who missed most of last year due to injury and were potential starters. A newcomer to watch there is 6-foot-5, 272-pound junior Sam Murrer. Evan Braun is the top returning receiver with 32 catches for 565 yards and seven TDs. He stands 6-foot-3, 185 pounds. Senior Sam Hatter posted 26 grabs for 328 yards and three scores. On defense, CCH limited teams to 12 points per game a year ago, posting five shutouts and two other games of allowing less than a touchdown.
The Colonels returns several key players on defense, led by senior linebacker Sam Burchell, senior safety Matthew Way, senior safety Austin Oberhausen and senior cornerback Adam Fisher. Burchell, considered one of the top linebackers in the state, had 97 tackles and nine tackles for loss a year ago. He is likely to miss the first couple of games due to injury. Oberhausen had 80 tackles. Newcomers to watch on defense include end Luke Foertsch, linebacker Lucas Timmerman and backs Alex Wagner and Matt Schmahl. Way and junior Lee McClure give Cov Cath an explosive return game. McClure will also
look to make an impact in the receiving corps. Wirth said a concern is the graduation losses in the defensive line, but added the Colonels should have size and depth there. Cov Cath starts the year at Boone County Aug. 23, then plays the other Colonels of Dixie Heights Aug. 30. CCH also plays Moeller Sept. 7, then Kentucky 6A team Henderson County, who is coming off a 9-3 season. Cov Cath also plays local stalwarts Beechwood, Ryle and Conner.

Holmes aims to establish identity By Adam Turer
COVINGTON — Holmes High School’s football program is under new leadership in 2013 and is looking to establish an identity on and off the field. Ben Nevels enters his first year as head coach with lots of talent to work with, and one playmaker who can change a game in an instant. Running back Jon Scruggs averaged more than eight yards a carry last season, and is also a major factor on special teams and defense for the Bulldogs. With the graduation of several other skill position players, Holmes is counting on Scruggs to produce even while opposing defenses are keyed in on stopping him. “Jon is a difference-maker on both sides of the ball,” said Nevels. “He is a threat to score any time he touches the ball.” While the team was hit hard by graduation at the skill positions, the offensive line returns almost entirely intact. Led by Breandon Johnson, the line returns four starters. Joining Johnson up front are Kamron Griffith, Tyler McIntosh, and Marco Bright. Johnson, a 6’2”, 315 lb. junior, has the size and skills to dominate. “He possesses a rare blend of size, speed and strength,” said Nevels. “Breandon has an opportunity to be one of the most dominant linemen ever to play at Holmes.” Nevels was pleased to inherit a roster that is willing to put in the work to get better. Players like sophomores Sean Sullivan, Alex Vancini, and Shawndale Mincey have shown a commitment to make the future bright for Holmes football. “As a team, our biggest strengths are our athleticism

and our drive to improve,” Nevels said. “Our young men want to get better every time they step on the field. This attitude will allow us to transform adversity into opportunities.” Receiver and defensive back Freddie Wardlaw is another upperclassmen who provides leadership on both sides of the ball. The Bulldogs would like to be deeper in order to compete in possibly the toughest division in Northern Kentucky. Class 4A boasts both Highlands and Covington Catholic. Holmes is more concerned with internal
improvement that catching up with those storied programs this year. “A major key for our team this season will be staying healthy and maturing,” Nevels said. “We feel like if we can stay healthy and improve on the little things day in and day out, we will be right where we need to be when the playoffs arrive.” The offense will need to master a new spread system and find a starting quarterback who can distribute the ball to the team’s athletic skill players. The defense prides itself on its
athleticism and relentless pursuit out of the 3-3-stack base. If the Bulldogs can stay healthy and find additional playmakers around Scruggs, the first year under Nevels should be a smooth transition. In his first year as a head coach, Nevels is focused on the details that will help the program grow for years to come. “Our team goal is to do the little things right, on and off the field, day in and day out,” said Nevels. “We feel that if we take care of this single goal, all the rest will take care of itself.”

Preserve summer taste by roasting tomatoes As I’ve mentioned before, I know when a recipe hits a chord with readers by the amount of response it generates long after it’s published. This is particularly true of seasonal recipes, like roasted tomatoes. This recipe is slightly different from one I shared last year. Tomatoes are in season right now and the homegrown/best are abundant at farmers’ markets. Rita As for Heikenfeld me, my RITA’S KITCHEN tomatoes are the best I’ve ever grown and since most of them are the indeterminate type, they keep bearing all season long. I’m not even begrudging the groundhogs eating their share, there’s that many!

Plus the yellow and orange tomatoes have just as much nutrition as their red counterparts.
Roasted regular-size tomatoes with herbs (or not) Preheat oven to 400425 degrees. Cut tomatoes in half. Lay either cut side up or down (I laid mine cut side down but next time will lay them cut side up since I think that will keep more of the tomato flavor in). Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle on any herbs you like – basil, thyme, rosemary all work well. But be sure and chop them up fine. I also like

to add salt and pepper. Roast until skins start to look spotty if you are roasting skin side up. Otherwise, roast until tomatoes look wrinkled and are soft. Let cool and, if you like, remove skins. The first time I made them I didn’t remove the skins, but when I used them in cooked dishes they were a little tough. My suggestion is to remove them or put them in the blender or food processor and the skins will process small enough. You will wind up with more of a puree if you put them through the blender or food processor, but the bonus is you get the nutritious benefits of the skin. Freeze in desired quantities.

Runners overcome challenges at Fleeing Felon Run INDEPENDENCE — Felons flee from police to stay out of jail, but at the Fleeing Felon Run, participants make their way through 3.5 miles filled with 12 different obstacles in an effort to stay fit, have fun and raise money to fight cancer. The Independence Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 75 hosted the run Saturday, Aug. 10, through the woods of Lincoln Ridge Park. Proceeds from the race benefit Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Cancer/Oncology Blood Research Center. Approximately 80 people, ranging in age from 13-51, completed the course, according to volunteer Phyllis Vetter. At the finish line, a team of runners talked about how much fun they had, as well as their favorite and least favorite parts of the course. “This year is better than last year,” said Eric Nelson.

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.

Coldframe can take garden through winter
Question: My spring/ summer garden did poorly, but I have heard it’s also possible to plant a fall and winter garden. Is this true? How and when should I begin this project? Answer: There is still time to plant a few things without winter protection or many more if you construct a simple cold frame or just Mike cover the Klahr crops with HORTICULTURE some kind CONCERNS of frost protection. It is not too late to continue to enjoy the garden and add new plantings. A variety of produce can be grown in Northern Kentucky gardens in the coming weeks, allowing fresh items to be available well into the fall. The cooler nights experienced later in the year as these vegetables mature may increase the sugar content of many crops and thus increase their quality. Cooler nights also slow growth, however, so crops can take longer to mature than in the summer. Keep this slower pace in mind when you check seeds for days to maturity. You need to plant let-
throughout the fall. After planting the crops mentioned above, it’s time to build a simple coldframe. All you need is 4 boards (2 by 12 inches) for the sides, and some kind of clear plastic or glass for the roof. Old glass sliding doors or old double-pane windows work great for this. Build your base to fit the glass or plastic roof. Make the length whatever you want, but keep the width to about 4 feet so you can easily reach the middle of the bed from each side without climbing into the coldframe. Put this “empty sandbox” on the ground, dig up the existing soil, add some compost or a few bags of potting mix, and plant in it. This will be your cold frame. Now, inside your coldframe, you can plant all sorts of cool-season veggies: carrots, kale, collards, Bibb lettuce, turnips, kohlrabi, Chinese cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, radishes, turnips, beets, parsley, snow peas and leaf lettuce. You will enjoy har-

vesting up until Christmas, and many of these crops will actually survive the winter and start growing again in February and March for an April harvest. If you vent the roof about ½-1 inch, your coldframe will never get too hot. Otherwise, if it is kept tightly closed, the temperature inside will climb to 100 degrees on a sunny winter day. Ventilation is essential to avoid high-temperature damage to the plants growing inside the coldframe.

Independent Auditor’s Report To the Honorable Mayor and Members of the Council City of Cold Spring, Kentucky
We have audited the accompanying ﬁnancial statements of the governmental activities, the business-type activities and each major fund of the City of Cold Spring, 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’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these ﬁnancial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the ﬁnancial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the ﬁnancial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and signiﬁcant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall ﬁnancial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the ﬁnancial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the respective ﬁnancial position of the governmental activities, the business-type activities and each major fund of the City of Cold Spring, 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 1, 2013 on our consideration of the City of Cold Spring, Kentucky’s internal control over ﬁnancial reporting and 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 conjunction with this report in considering the results of our audit. The management’s discussion and analysis on pages 4 through 8 and the budgetary comparison information on pages 25 and 26, are not a required part of the basic ﬁnancial statements but are supplementary information required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. We have applied certain limited procedures, which consisted principally of inquiries of management regarding the methods of measurement and presentation of the required supplementary information. However, we did not audit the information and express no opinion on it.

Police presence helps keep schools safe By Amy Scalf firstname.lastname@example.org
ALEXANDRIA — When Campbell Ridge Elementary students see police volunteers like Rodney Henson, they start running – not because they’re scared, but because they want to get a hug. Henson worked with Alexandria Police Chief Mike Ward at the end of the last school year to develop the Volunteers In Police Service, or VIPS, in Schools program, to provide safety for students in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., shootings. “I’ve never had any tragedy affect me like the Connecticut shootings. It ripped my heart out,” said Henson. “There’s nothing more precious than innocent kids.” VIPS in Schools is the only program of its kind in Kentucky, and Ward expects to present it during the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference in October. The volunteers were in schools for a month before the term ended, but they were back on the first day of the new school year. As students file past him in the hallway, they stop for high-fives, hugs or just to say hi. Mayor Bill Rachford said Henson and the seven other volunteers see those hugs as their reward. “Each volunteer has got one, and they say that’s when they know they’re in the right spot,” he said. “I’m amazed at how a small agency can do this without adding a huge amount of expense.” Henson and seven other volunteers patrol three schools – Campbell Ridge, St. Mary School and Bishop Brossart High School. The next VIPS in Schools training session starts in September. For

more information, call Henson at 859-957-9372. He said the seven-week training “touches on every aspect of police patrols” except weapons, because they don’t carry firearms. They do get to drive a police cruiser, which stays parked outside the school while they’re on duty. Ward said his officers also stop by to check the school. “So there’s no telling if there’s an officer or a volunteer with that car,” he said. The group trained during the summer to carry stun guns as they walk through the school and its grounds each day, but the volunteers also have a deeper social involvement. “There’s a huge emphasis on social services and how to deal with at-risk kids,” said Ward. The volunteers also escort all visitors through

officers, not as someone who gets the bad guys, but someone who helps people.” Ward and Henson hope the new group of VIPS in Schools will allow them to keep one volunteer at Campbell Ridge each day, and one to go between the other two schools.

Festival began as recognition of town’s ‘old-timers’ By Stephanie Salmons email@example.com
RABBIT HASH — An annual end-of-summer festival continues to pay homage to Rabbit Hash’s history. The 34th annual Old Timers Day Festival will be held from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 31, in the river community. “We will have food, fun, kids games, live music and general merrymaking,” organizer and Rabbit Hash General Store proprietor Terrie Markesbery said.
Gunpowder Creek, Markesbery said, always makes an appearance. Additional live music will be provided by Whiskey Bent Valley Boys, Downtown County Band, G. Miles and the Hitmen and more. There will also be a carnival in the barn for children, face painting and pottery demonstrations. The festival, she explained, first began as a way to recognize the patrons of the circa-1831 general store and “the people who have lived here their whole lives, the
old-timers.” The day is “just downhome fun,” and a gathering where families, friends and people of all walks of life can gather, Markesbery said. “People just keep showing up for this consistent Americana fun.” Old Timers Day is, to the locals, also a time of closure and renewals, she said. “It marks time for people that live here and marks time for the oldtimers,” said Markesbery. “They can say another year has gone by.” The best part though, at least according to Markesbery, is to see how the locals come together.
Old Timers Day is a tradition in Rabbit Hash. This year, the festival, pictured here several years ago, is Aug. 31.FILE PHOTO
“You could not do this festival if you (didn’t) have 50 volunteers.” Parking in the town is limited so those who attend are asked to carpool. There will be a shuttle to bring visitors from the

Legal Notice The Campbell County Board of Education will hold a public hearing at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 29, 2013, at the Alexandria Educational Center, 51 Orchard Lane, Alexandria, Kentucky, for the purpose of hearing public comments regarding proposed 2013-14 general fund tax levies of 59.2 cents per $100 on real estate and on personal property. In fiscal year 2012-13 the general fund tax rate levied was 56.6 cents on real estate and on personal property and produced total revenue of $17,495,907, compared to that year’s expected total of $18,004,168 assuming a 100% collection rate. For 2013-14 the proposed general tax rates of 59.2 cents on real estate and on personal property are expected to produce revenue of $18,790,623 (assuming a 100% collection rate) of which $1,676,444 is expected to be from new and personal property. Of the total expected tax revenue for 2013-14, $18,226,905 is projected to be collected as current year’s taxes, based on an estimated collection rate of 97%. The 2013-14 compensating general tax rate is 57.0 cents on real estate and on personal property with total revenue expected to be $18,092,323 if these rates were used and if there were a 100% collection rate. The general areas to which the estimated tax revenues for 2013-14 in excess of the collected tax revenues for 2012-13 will be allocated are as follows: instruction, cost of collections, technology; retirement contributions; and building fund. The General Assembly has required publication of this advertisement and information contained herein.

CRESTVIEW HILLS — A cornhole tournament at Thomas More College will raise money for a veterans’ scholarship. Eddie Oestreicher, an assistant professor in the Department of Business Administration, said the college decided about a year ago they “wanted to be a lot more veteran friendly.” “We – a group of administrators and educators – formed a task force to develop strategies and approaches that would promote the school, inform the military of our ‘Yellow Ribbon’ status and provide fun events to honor both our returning reserve and active duty service members and their families,” Oestreicher said in an email. Enter, then, the inaugural Heroes Cup Cornhole Tournament, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 24, near the Bank of Kentucky Observatory on the Thomas More campus. While 70 percent of the proceeds will go to tournament payout, 30 percent will go to the school’s Heroes Scholarship Fund.
Oestreicher said that’s a new scholarship that will benefit returning veterans. According to Oestreicher, there will be “a whole host of vendors that are military-related.” Winners also qualify to participate in a West Virginia tournament with a $20,000 prize payout. The event is something that can be enjoyed not only by folks who play regularly, Oestreicher said, “but also people who play in their backyard.” According to Oestreicher, the tournament is “open to everyone. “We want to make it an annual event.” Oestreicher, who has lived in Union since 2005, retired in 2012 after 31 years in the military. He spent 10 years in the U.S. Army Reserves and nearly 22 years in the U.S. Navy Reserves. Online registration is $30 per team of two. Visit bit.ly/cornholetourney or call 513-965-8687 to register. Registration is $40 the day of the event. Want to continue the conversation? Tweet at @SSalmonsNKY

New medical education center opens in Erlanger By Kamellia Soenjoto Smith Recorder Contributor
ERLANGER — “When students come here, we know their objective. Everybody wants a job,” explained Sherry AlstonFeltson, campus director of Ross Medical Education Center in Erlanger. “We give everybody the tools.” The new school, which opened just last month, provides training in subjects such as medical assistant, pharmacy technician, as well as medical insurance billing and office administration. What makes Ross unique? Size, for one thing. “The campus is meant to be small.” Denise Stock is studying to be a pharmacy technician. “The classes are small. I like that because we got a lot of oneon-one,” she said. “Our students are more to us than just a number,” Alston-Feltson pointed out. “The reason for the small class is to develop personalized relationships with our students. We’re here to help them to succeed.” Students at Ross can expect to enter the job market sooner than those from other schools. “We have a certificate pro-

gram, so our programs are eight to nine months long,” she said. All students participate in a six-week externship after they complete their classroom training. She is optimistic about the prospects for graduates. “We’ve seen a growing need for jobs in the medical industry,” she said. What kinds of jobs? Take, for instance, a graduate with a Medical Assistant certificate. “They can work in a hospital, they can work at urgent
care centers, they can work in a doctor’s office,” Alston-Feltson explained.
