District sees increased enrollment, deals with residency issues By Amanda Joering Alley

The Fort Thomas Independent Schools have seen a jump in enrollment this year with about 120 more students than last year. Superintendent John Williamson said the increase, which has affected mainly the center of town and Moyer Elementary School, has caused some parents to complain that tuition students are overcrowding the schools. Out of the district’s 2,638 students, 174 are tuition students, Williamson said. “This increase is not because of the tuition students, it’s because of families moving into the district,” Williamson said. “We welcome tuition students and are happy to have them because they bring money into the district that allows us to do more in this tight economy.” Tuition students brought in about $675,000 this year, which equates to 12 teachers’ salaries.

“Without these tuition students, those are 12 teachers that would not be here, and we would be maxing class sizes without that money,” Williamson said. “I want everyone to understand that the tuition students are a positive thing for the district.” Assistant Superintendent Rita Byrd said it is because of tuition students that the district is able to offer all-day kindergarten classes. One issue increasing this year is residency problems, with families claiming to live in the district who really live in other districts. Byrd said school officials are investigating these residency issues to ensure that people aren’t abusing the city’s tax dollars. “It’s not fair because the residents are paying taxes and the tuition students are paying up to $4,500,” Byrd said. “Students who don’t live in Fort Thomas are welcome to stay in the district, but they have to pay tuition.”

Tupelo Honey to open for LeAnn Rimes By Amanda Joering Alley

What started as just playing guitar together for fun, is now giving two Highlands High School graduates the chance to open for country star LeAnn Rimes. Heather Turner and Katie Cook, two members of the local band Tupelo Honey, have been playing together for more than five years. “In college we won a talent competition and ever since then we’ve pursued playing,” Turner said. “We started writing more material, and it just kind of crescendoed since then.” Turner said soon after they started playing other talented musicians wanted to play with them, forming the current band of six. Tupelo Honey’s music is really eclectic, Turner said, combining aspects from rock, Latin, reggae, folk and country music. “Since it’s so diverse, most

Kentucky Motor Speedway event on Fountain Square. Turner said it is through those connections that Tupelo Honey

got booked to open for LeAnn Rimes Friday, Sept. 17, at the Cintas Center at Xavier University, 1624 Herald Ave., in Cincinnati. “I’ve always liked LeAnn Rimes, so getting to open for her kind of surreal,” Cook said. “I’m excited to meet her and have the opportunity to play in front of all those people.” A week before the show, Friday, Sept. 10, the band is holding a CD release party at the Madison Theater in Covington, where they will be joined by other local bands including The Turkeys, Magnolia Mountain and The Newbies. For Cook, another big event, the birth of her first child, is expected at the end of this month. “I’m a little nervous about playing the show 12 days before my due date, but I’m just crossing my fingers that I can keep her in there,” Cook said. Turner and Cook said while they may take a little break after Cook’s baby is born, they both hope to continue to pursue their music and play together.

Business owners to quiz Campbell candidates By Amanda Joering Alley

Candidates for various Campbell County races will be answering questions on the issues at the Fort Thomas Business Association’s upcoming candidate forum. The forum, which is from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 23, at the Fort Thomas Communi-

ty Center, will feature candidates for senate, family court, judge executive, county commissioner, county attorney and jailer. Association President Tracy Davis said the group is using this as their quarterly meeting, where they always try to have a speaker to make association membership valuable to participants. “We thought our members,

along with the public, would like a chance to meet the candidates faces to face and voice their questions and concerns,” Davis said. “We also thought the candidates would like to have the opportunity to have a public forum.” Davis said so far, the association has had a great response from the public, businesses and candidates.

Of the 14 candidates for the races, 11 have confirmed that they are attending, Davis said. Pat Crowley will be moderating the event, collecting written questions from the audience, then asking them to the candidates. “We are doing it this way to ensure fairness and try to keep chaos out of it,” Davis said.

Artist brings mural painting to the Levee By Amanda Joering Alley

The ballot measure asking voters in November if they want to switch the format of their county government representation has been drawing fire from both Republicans and Democrats. Lloyd Rogers of Alexandria and Tim Nolan of California are among the leaders of the idea of switching to a Justice of the Peace/ magistrate form of county government with eight magistrates elected from among their districts. Rogers said they’re calling their campaign group the “Committee to Restore Good Government” with the website of If voters decide to switch in November, it will not take effect until 2014. The current commissioner system with three representatives picked by voters throughout the county, has been in place since 1918. Both forms of Fiscal Court

governments have a Judgeexecutive spot at the top. Kevin Sell, who lost the Republican nomination for Judge-executive to Steve Pendery in the May primary election, has been trading anti-magistrate system emails with Lloyd Rogers and a host of other recipients that make up a who’s who of Campbell County politics. Sell said the change to a magistrate system has implifications for the Republican party in the November election including being a distraction and draining resources from some candidates. There is an opportunity to elect two new Republican commissioners and a Republican county attorney to serve on the Fiscal Court, Sell said in one of his emails to Rogers. Rogers said there is a chance that in this year or in any election year that Republicans won’t be elected to the Fiscal Court, and the justice of the peace/magistrate system guarantees at least some representation for the southern part of the county.

Having eight justices of the peace/magistrates will make it harder to pass any tax increases by creating “gridlock,” Rogers said. Sell said the switch will probably create gridlock in county government, and that’s not necessarily a good thing. “All eight of these justices will only be concerned about their little piece of our county, and nothing will be accomplished on the whole,” said Sell in an e-mail. And while not part of the e-mail exchanges between Sell and Rogers, Democratic Commissioners Ken Rechtin and Dave Otto have both taken public stances against the idea of switching government styles and have said it will create a more parochial representation that doesn’t look out for the needs of the county as a whole. Rechtin, who is unopposed in the November election, said he’ll stand by whatever the voters decide, but he doesn’t think it works even with Rogers argument that the southern part of the county will gain better representation. The argument is that all

of the current commissioners live north of I-275, Rechtin said. Currently, both the Democratic and Republican candidate for District 1 live south of I-275, and there is a Republican challenger for the District 2 commission seat who is from California, Rechtin said. “Let’s say that eight magistrate districts are constructed and each one has roughly 10,000 people, the unincorporated area may get one or two magistrates out of six,” he said. Rechtin, of Newport, said it wouldn’t make a difference to him in how he would vote based on whether it’s a justice of the peace/magistrate or commissioner form of government. Some magistrates, elected only by a portion of the county might act only in the interest of the people who vote for them in their districts, he said. “Let’s say there’s an issue in California or Camp Springs right now,” Rechtin said. “I’m interested because that’s a constituent, that person votes for me, I represent them.”

Salon clips a gift for foster children By Chris Mayhew

Donations from a “cut-athon” at a Cold Spring hair salon will help to make Christmas better for local children in foster care. The stylists at Studio 27 Salon, 4029 Alexandria Pike, Cold Spring, will give hair cuts from 2:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 18, for a $12 donation to Specialized Alternatives for Families and Youth (SAFY). SAFY is primarily a therapeutic foster care agency, said Lisa J. Daniel, recruiter/family development specialist for SAFY of Northern Kentucky. The agency specializes in teenagers and sibling groups, and does have some placements of children with autism, Daniel said. “We have fundraisers so that we can have events for children,” Daniel said. “This is going to be for our Christmas party so we can buy

A regular customer, who works at SAFY, asked if there was any way the salon could help its Christmas fundraiser, and the answer was “yes,” Zumwalde said. Zumwalde said she is a cancer survivor, and believes in the importance of giving back. The proceeds from a bake sale on the day of the cut-a-thon will also be donated to SAFY, she said. Customers who can’t make it to the

cut-a-thon will also have their chance to donate too, she said. “We will have a jar the week of it, so if somebody can’t make it in during the cut-a-thon- they can still come in and donate,” Zumwalde said. Locally, SAFY also hosts other annual events including a trip this year to the Cincinnati Zoo with a group of foster parents, about 45 foster children and the foster parents’ biological children, she said. A donation of 138 Cincinnati Reds tickets also allowed the children to go to a game in August, Daniel said. Additionally, there are statewide events including this October’s conference for foster parents: “Creating Pathways for Vulnerable Youth Populations” at Georgetown College. Foster children will be treated to a trip to a water park while the foster parents attend the conference, Daniel said.

Foster parent information

Right now SAFY is focusing on a growing need for foster families in Campbell County, Daniel said. There are currently four SAFY foster families in Campbell County, she said. “We really need foster parents in Campbell County because the need is growing,” Daniel said. SAFY works with licensed foster parents with experience caring for children other than their own, she said. That kind of experience ranges from parents who are youth ministers and teachers to daycare workers, Daniel said. People with experience in areas including teaching Sunday school and youth sports often have the relevant experience of working with young children, she said. It doesn’t necessarily need to be a paid job, she said. The state sends a list of referrals to SAFY that the staff then reviews to see if there is a foster family that will match up with a foster child’s needs, she said. People interested in becoming a foster parent can call Lisa J. Daniel at the Northern Kentucky SAFY (Specialized Alternatives for Families and Youth) office at 341-9333.

Grad student creates better park map By Chris Mayhew

Using GPS and aerial photographs, a University of Cincinnati graduate student has created a new trail map sign for the Alexandria Community Park. In association with the Alexandria’s park board, Chris Carr, a graduate student and PhD candidate in the Department of Geography at the University of Cincinnati, did the GPS

mapping as part of his studies about trail recreation. Carr, of Clifton, said he regularly hikes and maps trails as he walks using hand-held GPS devices. Carr said he’s done extensive GPS mapping of and studying the impact of trails in the Daniel Boone National Forest and the Red River Gorge area. Carr’s also done GPS mapping in Denali National Park and Preserve in Alaska. The devices record a

location every second of where a walker is at and creates a highly accurate map, he said. Carr said in the case of the Alexandria Community Park, he was able to save some of the hiking he normally does and used highly accurate aerial maps that the Northern Kentucky Area Planning Commission has. The maps have layers including very fine resolution aerial photographs of the whole county including

the park, he said. “I could see the trails in the photographs,” Carr said. “While it is more fun to hike the trails, it is faster to trace the trails from the photographs.” And the photographs themselves are special because they’ve been technically created so that every point on the photograph has been adjusted to be in the correct geographic position, he said. “I can in effect trace the trails and make an aesthetically pleasing and accurate map just by tracing the aerial photographs,” Carr said. The sign with a map of the trails helps because there are trails people might not know about, including a new trail that was built after a sewer line was put through the park, said Pam Proctor, a member of Alexandria’s Park and Recreation Board. Proctor said having Carr do the mapping revealed that the trail around the lake was .67 tenths of a mile instead of seven tenths of a mile. The results are on a map sign at the entrance to the park, Proctor said. In addition to the park map, a group of technical school students are also starting work on a project to add decorative stone work at the entrance to the park, Proctor said.

Fourth-grade students from all three Fort Thomas Elementary Schools got an in-depth look into the city’s history during a recent visit to Tower Park. As part of a two-week unit about the city’s history, about 200 students from the schools spent the day at the park, visiting a variety of historical landmarks including the armory, the old military post, the water tower, the tree trail and the Fort Thomas Military and Community Museum. “During the Fort Thomas history unit, students learn all about these places, but actually getting to visit them is really great,” said Chris Capal, a fourth-grade teacher at Moyer Elementary. “This city’s history is very interesting, and it’s great that the kids have the opportunity to learn about it like this.” Groups of students spent the day taking turns at the various stations, where they heard from different speakers. Johnson Elementary School Principal Jon Stratton said visiting Tower Park really helps the students understand the history of the city. “Getting to see these things really generates some excitement in the students and helps to develop their sense of community,” Stratton said. Stratton said the students’ reactions were the best indicators of what the day meant to them. “I heard one student say, ‘That

NKU to offer healthy campus catering Northern Kentucky University announced a new catering program to make choosing healthy food easy and affordable for all who dine on campus. The program, called Meeting Well, provides healthy catering options to NKU Dining customers including faculty, staff, students and the local community. “Meeting Well puts a healthy yet affordable spin on catered food on campus, making it easy for anyone at NKU to select healthy and delicious food for catered events on campus,” said John Ruppert, director of NKU Dining. “Meeting Well offers healthy food and beverage choices not only for breakfast, lunch and dinner menus, but also for receptions, meeting breaks, special events – really any occasion where food is served.”

Allyson Wallbridge, assistant director of NKU Wellness and a registered dietitian, said the partnership was designed to take the guesswork out of choosing healthy food. “Meeting Well helps food purchasers identify healthy options and provides guidance on working these options into a well-rounded menu,” Wallbridge said. “The beauty of Meeting Well is that it can be used to augment an existing menu or to create an entire menu of healthy options.” Kathy Stewart, director of special events at NKU, said Meeting Well helps her respond to the growing demand for healthy food from both campus and community groups.

Justice Donald C. Wintersheimer, retired justice of the Kentucky Supreme Court, has donated his original papers and other personal documents to the Northern Kentucky University Chase College of Law. The Justice Donald C. Wintersheimer Digital Collection will be formerly dedicated at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 7, in the Chase Law Library. This publically accessible digital archive includes more than 8,000 documents chronicling the justice’s work on the court and offers a historical window into the social and economic issues facing Kentucky during those decades. The collection includes draft opinions, memos, briefs and other documents that accompanied the decisionmaking process of Justice

Wintersheimer and his colleagues on the Court. “Chase College of Law is honored to unveil the Justice Donald C. Wintersheimer Digital Collection,” said Michael Whiteman, associate dean for law library services and information technology. “This collection makes available to legal researchers and scholars the inner workings of the Kentucky Supreme Court and allows them to get behind the rationale of Kentucky Supreme Court decisions that have shaped the law in the Commonwealth for the past 30 years.” Justice Wintersheimer served on the Kentucky Supreme Court beginning with his election in 1982 until his retirement from the bench in 2006. Prior to his

service on the Supreme Court he was a judge on the Kentucky Court of Appeals, solicitor for the City of Covington and an attorney in private practice. He was a prolific opinion writer, averaging over 50 opinions each year, the most for any member of the Kentucky Supreme Court. He has published three law review articles in the area of state constitutional law for the Northern Kentucky Law Review and the Albany Law Review. Justice Wintersheimer is a member of the American Society of Writers on Legal Subjects as well as a member of the Kentucky and Ohio State Bar Associations, American Bar Association, Cincinnati Bar Association and Northern Kentucky Bar Association. A founding

member of the Salmon P. Chase American Inn of Court, he is a member of the American Judicature Society and the Institute of Judicial Administration. He is a member of the adjunct faculty at Chase and teaches a seminar course in state constitutional law. He previously served as the Distinguished Jurist in Residence at the college of law and was named Outstanding Jurist by Phi Alpha Delta Legal Foundation in 1990. In conjunction with the reception and dedication, Justice Wintersheimer will sign copies of his new book, “Secrets of the Kentucky Supreme Court: A Memoir,” and he will deliver a presentation to Chase students at noon.

Brossart football rallies to go 3-0 By James Weber

After learning how to win last year, the Bishop Brossart football team is showing that it hasn’t forgotten those skills over the summer. The Mustangs beat Caverna 23-22 on the road Sept. 3 to improve to 3-0 for the season. Jesse Orth connected with Spencer Brown for a 50-yard touchdown with 45 seconds to play, completing a comeback from a 22-3 first-half deficit. “Our conditioning and how we pushed ourselves was a big key,” Brossart head coach Matt Reinhart said. “We found out something about ourselves. They were physical and fast and their QB was one of the best we’ve seen. He killed us until we figured out how to handle him.” Orth and Brown hooked up for an 80-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Andrew Guidugli had a rushing TD as part of his 86 ground yards. Orth, a junior, is in his second year under center. He scrambled for a first down on fourth-and-12 on the game-winning drive. “Jesse has done well for us,” Reinhart said. “He was able to throw the ball well and run it to sustain drives. He’s coming into his own

and has truly developed into our leader on offense. While he wasn't vocal last year, he is now. He gets them ready to play.” Brossart is off this week and will play its home opener against Eminence 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 17, at Newport Stadium. Bellevue lost 54-7 to Holmes to drop to 1-2. Holmes had 449 yards offense to 132 for the Tigers. Jacob Sparks had Bellevue’s lone touchdown. Bellevue plays Scott this week. The game is a Thursday night special, 7 p.m. Sept. 9 at Dixie Heights. Campbell County lost 207 at Roger Bacon to drop to 1-1. Michael Kremer connected with Cory Hodge for a 47-yard touchdown for the Camels’ lone score. Campbell goes to Covington Catholic for a Saturday game, 1 p.m. Sept. 11. Dayton lost at Taylor, 51-0 Sept. 3. The Greendevils (0-2) will host Lloyd 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 10. Highlands improved to 3-0 with a 50-24 win over Beechwood. Highlands won its 31st straight game, the best current streak in the state. The Bluebirds did most of their damage in the air, with Patrick Towles completing 11-of-17 passes for 288 yards and five touchdowns. Brian Gall was the top

Highlands hosts Withrow 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 10.

Newport won its first game of the year, improving to 1-1 with a 49-6 win at Pendleton County. Newport had 399 yards offense to 122 for Pendleton. Demetri Brown carried the offense at quarterback. He completed 9-of-14 passes for 163 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed 21 time for 154 yards and

three scores. Rob Washington caught two passes, both for touchdowns totalling 93 yards. Jacob Whaley had four grabs for 47 yards. Brandon Carter rushed for 43 yards and Matthew Shepard had 35 rushing yards and a score. Rodney Orr led the defense with eight tackles. Newport plays at Harrison County 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 10.

Camels VB improving this season By James Weber

Melissa Johnson sees a lot of potential in the Campbell County High School volleyball team she took over this season. The Camels have struggled at times this season but have pulled off some big wins this year. Johnson, who became the head coach this summer, has directed the team to a 7-5 record through Sept. 4. The Camels lost a three-set decision to Holy Cross in the semifinals of the Scott September Slam, falling 15-13 in the third set after a long rally on the final point. In that match, the Camels won the second set

25-11 after losing the first 25-14. “They played really well in the second game,” Johnson said. “We have our moments. Last night here, we played very well. We can be up on teams by eight points and let them back in and lose it.” In pool play in that tournament, Campbell lost to 2009 Ninth Region runnerup Scott in three sets. The Camels have been adjusting to losing their two top players from last year to Division I colleges and will look to get back to the state tournament after losing in the 10th Region finals last year. Junior Kennedy Berkley, a middle hitter and one of the team’s top returners, returned in the Scott tour-

ney after battling neck and back injuries. Senior Jessica Partin has been the team leader this season. Junior Jenna Martin has been a versatile presence for the Camels. Other returning starters include Kaitlyn Brown and Julia Peters. The Camels will play at rival Brossart Thursday, Sept. 9, then at Ninth Region champ Notre Dame Sept. 14. “We just have to work on our weak spots,” Johnson said. “If we do that, we’ll be OK. I don’t know if anyone in the region has the room to improve like we do. We just have to keep pushing and hopefully we’ll get to state.”

Setter Molly Williams is a returning starter for Bishop Brossart.


The Bishop Brossart High School volleyball team is a more seasoned, experienced unit this year. The Mustangs parlayed that experience to an 8-0 start before losing to Highlands Sept. 2. Coming up, they have a chance to show what they’ve learned in their experience in the All “A” Classic state tournament. Brossart will play in the state tourney Saturday, Sept. 11 as one of 16 regional champions from around the state. Brossart is the defending consolation bracket champion. “We’ve been playing well as a team lately, putting it all together,” head coach Pennie

Wiseman said. “Last year, we won the bronze (division). We’re hoping we can go even further this year and go for the overall championship.” Action begins at 8 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 11. The 16 regional champions are divided into four pools, with the pools playing a roundrobin schedule. Pool play will be divided between Eastern Kentucky University and Berea High School. Brossart is in a pool with Whitesville Trinity, Raceland and Betsy Layne. Louisville Holy Cross is the defending champion. The top two teams in each pool will advance to the championship bracket, with the other two playing in the consolation bracket. The

championship match is 8:30 p.m. at EKU. The veteran play starts with senior outside hitter Felicity Britt, who leads the Brossart attack. Junior setter Molly Williams has quarterbacked the offense well and senior libero Marie Heeb has been a key defender. Returning junior hitters Meredith Harris and Megan Herbst are also returning starters. “Our setter has another year of experience and she knows where to place to ball and when to attack an open opportunity on the other side of the net,” Wiseman said. Brossart will tune up for the All “A” with a home match against rival Campbell County Thursday, Sept. 9.

Bluebirds find their way on soccer pitch

The Highlands High School girls’ soccer team is starting to find its way in the 2010 season. After a deep and starstudded group of future college soccer players ended their careers in the 2008 state championship game, a much younger team learned their way through a 10-8-1 campaign in 2009. So far in 2010, there have been a few bumps, but the Bluebirds took a 5-3 record into a home game with Bellevue Sept. 7. Key district games with Campbell County at Tower Park (Sept. 9) and at Bishop Brossart (Sept. 11) were to follow. “We’ve been a little bit inconsistent so far this season, but it’s still early in the season,” head coach Tommy Kearns said. “We’re still figuring out who we are and where we’re going to go. It will take some time. Even tonight, we moved a

lot of players around, trying to solidify what type of formation we’ll play.” “Tonight” was a 5-1 win over Simon Kenton Aug. 31, in which the Bluebirds spotted the Pioneers an early goal then peppered the Pioneer net with shots the rest of the night. Five different players scored in the victory. One of them was senior MacKenzie Grause, who notched her 13th goal of the season to tie the game. Up to that point, she had posted all but six of the team’s goals for the season until teammates notched the rest against SK. The 13 goals is the most in Northern Kentucky, and would rank third in the state among teams that have submitted statistics to the KHSAA (which Highlands has not). A senior veteran and a physical, skilled forward, Grause was Highlands’ leading scorer last year as well.

“She’s a handful right now,” Kearns said. “I wouldn’t want to be the one marking her. She’s really feeding the ball to a lot of other people as well and getting the offense going.” Senior captain MacKenzie Cole can play anywhere on the field and has done so this year, Kearns said. Junior Shelby Tully is the team’s top midfielder and works hard to win the ball. Senior goalkeeper Sydney Groneck, in her second year as starter, missed the first four games of the season after having surgery on her left leg in the summer. She wore a protective sleeve on it against SK. “She’s recovering well and will be a big piece for us in the back,” Groneck said. Other seniors are Ashley Collinsworth, Alli Diehl, Caitlin Pendery, Caroline Newman and Jordan Earlywine. Kearns hopes the 5-1 SK win will be a springboard for the Bluebirds, who were

Saints to rely on defense early By James Weber

For the Thomas More College football team to continue its recent run of winning success, new offensive leaders will have to step up this year. The Saints have won the Presidents’ Athletic Conference the past two seasons and made the Division III playoffs those same years. Last year’s playoff dream ended with a last-second field goal by Johns Hopkins in the second round, ending TMC’s 11-0 start to the year, and this year’s Saints are primed to take the next step. “The kids are working hard,” said fourth-year head coach Jim Hilvert. “It’s exciting. We’re still a young football team. We have more experience on the defensive side of the ball. I’m very excited about the guys we have coming back and the guys we have coming in as recruits.” One guy not coming back is standout quarterback Trevor Stellman, who is now an assistant coach after a career in which he ended up second on TMC’s career passing list (5,325 yards) and first in passing TDs (50). Rob Kues, a former Newport Central Catholic standout in his sophomore season at TMC, takes over as starter. He got playing time in eight games last year but threw just seven passes. “The more snaps he gets this year, the better,” Hilvert said. “He has a lot of good weapons around him who can make plays. We have


Rob Kues takes over as Thomas More College quarterback. some good young players who can make Rob’s job easier.” Kendall Owens (La Salle) returns at running back, after gaining 412 yards on seven per carry. He steps into the No. 1 spot after the graduation of veteran Cordario Collier, who left with the No. 3 career ranking on the school’s rushing list. Owens is also the top returning receiver with 21 catches for 304 yards. Austin Studer (Campbell County) is the top returning wideout (16/297). Other returning weapons include running back Luis Perez (Anderson), receiver Mercier Doucette (Boone County) and tight end Matt Clark (McNicholas). Clark was second team all-conference last year. Freshman back Domonique Hayden and freshman receivers Adam Rauch and Corie Cartmell (Oak Hills) could make immediate impacts. TMC returns seven starters from a defense that

allowed just 16.6 points per game. Hilvert is excited about the line, anchored by firstteam all-PAC selections Tyler Owens (Highlands) and Jay Volker (Elder). Seniors Justin Smith (NewCath) and Greg Dixon (Cov Cath) join junior John French as key veterans. Sophomore linebacker Nick Gramke (Elder) leads that corps. He was first team all-conference last year. Zach Autenrieb (Elder) was one of the national leaders in interceptions last year, setting a school record with nine. The first-team all-PAC pick leads the secondary, which also returns second-team all-conference senior Aaron Monk (Elder) and honorable mention senior Wade Begley (Campbell County). “We’ll have a fast defense and a physical one,” Hilvert said. “We have a lot of leaders, guys who take pride in playing defense. The defense will keep us in the game while the offense gets into shape.” Dustin Zink (NewCath) returns as placekicker. TMC will start on the road at Hanover Sept. 11, then travel to Geneva for a PAC league game Sept. 18. The Saints will need to be in good shape for their home opener Sept. 25. That’s when chief PAC rival Washington & Jefferson comes into Crestview Hills. In a preseason national poll by the Sporting News, TMC was rated 12th and W&J 13th. TMC is the presesaon pick to win the PAC.

coming off a 2-0 loss to 2009 state runner-up Notre Dame three days earlier. The Notre Dame was a follow-up to an uplifting 4-1 win over state power Lexington Catholic. “We return a lot from last year but we’re seeing where the puzzle pieces fit,” Kearns said. “When you come off a big win like LexCath you’ve got to be prepared to give the same kind of effort night in and night out. Notre Dame outworked us in the middle of the field. They were the more physical team.”

Would you consider buying one the new models of electric cars, such as Nissan Leaf or Chevy Volt? Why or why not? “No. These cars are so subsidized by the government that they do not, at this time, represent an answer to our nation’s energy and environmental challenges. “Let the research continue and perhaps someday we will have better battery technology. Perhaps even hydrogen fuel cells or liquid natural gas (LNG) are the answer for powering cars and trucks. My understanding is that LNG is very viable today for much wider usage. “Meanwhile, the government subsidy for the production of technologies like electric cars, windmills, solar cells, ethanol, etc. is very wasteful. Let’s be smart about this.” T.H. “I definitely would, if I had the financial resources, and if I could still keep another vehicle in case the battery was drained. I’d like to see how they perform, but we really can’t afford the luxury. “Luckily, our cars are both paid for and our mortgage is paid off or we would have a tough time.” B.B. “Right now, I would not buy a new electric car. I always like to give cars a year or so on the market to see if there are any ‘bugs.’ “Also, in waiting, the price normally comes down just a little bit. However, I really like the idea of going electric with our automobiles.” J.W. “We’re empty-nesters with two vehicles. Electric cars will not satisfy the needs of either of us at this time. “Just the same, they are an intriguing option that might be in our near future.” R.V.

Send your answer to “” with Chatroom in the subject line. “Trains in much of the world have moved from using fossil fuels directly to using electric power, so if the necessary infrastructure is in place I have nothing against new power sources. “Of course, we need to mandate emission levels at power plants, and even though the utility companies will scream it’s cheaper to control emissions at a few plants than for every car. “The real question is do I want to be an early adopter of new technology, with all the risks that implies. If the warranties are good, why not?” D.R. “No! I’m sure the maintenance and parts replacement costs will outweigh what is available today.” S.T. “The concept of an all electric car is great. Unfortunately their price is too high. “The cost differential between a gas-powered and an electric car is not competitive at the moment. Perhaps this will change in the future. Why pay twice the price of a 40 mpg gas powered car? “The average person keeps a car for six to eight years. That equates to about $3,000 a year. That is more than 1,000 gallons of gas a year at today’s prices. The average person probably uses a little over half that amount of gasoline in a year. Do the math. “An electric car is not a good deal today. Maybe in the future.” J.S.D.

Sept. 1 question



September is National Preparedness Month

In Wednesday night’s Campbell County Fiscal Court meeting September was designed as National Preparedness Month in Campbell County. If the lights go out, are you prepared? Local officials encourage everyone to be prepared in case of emergency. “Kentuckians face many challenges throughout the year, from tornadoes, flooding, winter storms to manmade hazards”, said Director William R. Turner, of the Campbell County Office of Emergency Management. Turner concluded, “Every household should be prepared to face these challenges at any given time.” “Although the state and local governments are expected to assist the public during times of emergencies and disasters, preparedness starts at home. In the event of large scale disasters the government may be unable to respond immediately”, said John W. Heltzel, director of Kentucky Division of Emergency Management (KYEM). He continued, “The January ice storm of 2009 taught us many valuable lessons which we learned from. One of the most important is the value of self preparedness.” Be prepared! You should have a three day supply of food and water for each member of your family, along with essentials such as: medicines, flash lights, radio, extra batteries, matches, candles, first aid supplies, etc. Something as simple as having a flashlight, radio and extra batteries available, in the event of a power outage, can make you and your family more comfortable dur-

ing these times. Along with an emergency kit you should have an emergency plan. Planning for disaster: “Be Aware Be Prepared - Have a Plan - Make a Kit” Be aware: • Know in advance your weather forecasts • Stay tuned to your local broadcasting stations • Discuss conditions with family members and know their location during times of known potentially threatening conditions. Be prepared: • Discuss your plan with family members and neighbors • Review your plan periodically for necessary updates • Refresh you emergency kit(s) periodically • Drill: practice your plan with household members Have a plan: * • Utilities: Written instructions for how to turn off electricity, gas and water if authorities advise you to do so. (Remember, you'll need a professional to turn them back on) • Shelter: Identify safe locations within your residence • Contacts: Written contact information should include; relatives, neighbors, utility companies, employers (employees) and local emergency contact telephone numbers • Evacuate: Predetermine evacuation routes. Identify where you could go if told to evacuate Choose

Emerge Kentucky graduates inaugural class of women leaders Emerge Kentucky, a nonprofit organization established in 2009 to recruit and train Democratic women to run for public office, held its inaugural graduation of the 2010 Class of Emerge Kentucky on Saturday, August 28, 2010 at the Kentucky Democratic Party Headquarters in Frankfort. Twenty-two women from all across Kentucky will go forward to pursue their political career armed with the skills and education to run an effective campaign for public office. “Emerge Kentucky has created a pipeline of women with the tools needed to be effective candidates for public office,” said Emerge Kentucky Board Chair, Jennifer A. Moore. “These graduates are now in a position to step up and run for office at all levels of Kentucky government.”

Class members from Campbell County are: • Candace Klein – Newport • Julie Smith-Morrow – Newport • Brenda Simpson – Newport As part of the Emerge Kentucky 2010 seven-month training program, these women met with national, state and local leaders and political experts, as well as many of the state's top elected female officials and former leaders. Session speakers included Governor Steve Beshear, former Governor Martha Layne Collins, State Auditor Crit Luallen, Senators Robin Webb, Denise Harper Angel and Kathy Stein, Representative Sannie Overly, Eleanor Jordan, as well as numerous additional state house representatives. “My training through Emerge empowered me as a first-time can-

didate for Meade County Judge Executive,” said program member Becky Flaherty. “I questioned myself about my abilities and capabilities as a candidate. Emerge Kentucky truly has given me the confidence and tools that a candidate needs.” Another member of the 2010 class, Kimberly Greenwell, candidate for Kentucky House District 33 in Louisville described Emerge Kentucky as more than a training program. “It is a movement,” said Greenwell. “A movement that will change the face of Kentucky politics. If you are running for office at any level, Emerge gives you the courage, the tools and the network you need to be successful.” Eight participants in the inaugural class are candidates for the 2010 elections. They include State Representative candidate Kimber-

ly Greenwell, Mason County School Board candidate Tracey Heflin, Lexington-Fayette Urban Council candidate Kathy Plomin, Richmond City Commissioner and candidate for State Representative Rita Smart, Jefferson County School Board candidate Attica Scott, Meade County Judge-Executive candidate, Rebecca Flaherty, State Representative candidate Nellie Draus Stallings and Kentucky Senate candidate Julie Smith-Morrow. “The application for the next class of up to 25 Kentucky Democratic women will be available on the website on Sept. 1st,” said Executive Director Kathy Groob. Applications will be accepted until November 10, 2010 and the 2011 class will begin in January. Kentucky ranks 45th among the states for women in elected

There are no women in congress representing Kentucky. “For the first time, Democratic women in Kentucky will have the opportunity to receive a first-class intensive training program that will give them the confidence and skills they need to step up and run for public office,” said Emerge Kentucky Board Chair, Jennifer A Moore.

McKenzie Vater, the 2009 Miss Alexandria Fair, rides along Washington Street in Alexandria during the parade to kick-off the 154th Alexandria Fair & Horse Show Wednesday, Sept. 1.


Brothers Jim and Steve Pangallo pose for picture in front of their new business venture, Pangallo’s Auto Service, in the former Ken’s Kar Kare on Alexandria Pike in Southgate.

Pangallo’s offers full-service car care The former Ken’s Kar Kare on Alexandria Pike has a new owner and is getting a new look, but keeping the same tradition of full service car care. Newport resident Steve Pangallo took over the business, now called Pangallo’s Auto Service, at the beginning of August after purchasing the building from Kentucky Motors. “I’ve been in the auto repair business for 22 years,” said Pangallo, who worked for the old Neltner’s gas station for 12 years. “I decided it was time to branch out on my own.” Pangallo said he is going to keep offering full automotive services and full service gas service, which includes a fill-up, window cleaning, fluids check and

tire pressure check. “This is the only full service gas station in Campbell County,” Pangallo said. “It gives patrons a chance to ask myself and my techs about car maintenance while they’re getting their gas.” Pangallo said while they are open for business, they are finishing up a complete renovation of the building, including the office, lobby, bathroom and exterior. The business is holding an open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 18, that will include door prizes and food. Pangallo’s is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. For more information call 441-5001.

How many friends does truth have in our lives? Truth often seems difficult to find. That’s not because it wants to be so, but because we need it to be so. Humans can’t stand too much reality at a time. Imagine our chagrin if we actually knew the truth about ourselves, our weaknesses, unworthy motives and pretenses. Think of the trouble we would experience if we tried to speak the truth to everyone. A current Geico TV ad about truthful Abe Lincoln depicts our dilemma. Lincoln is asked by his wife, “Do you think this dress makes me look too fat?” He looks, silently struggles, anxiously fidgets, then holds his thumb and forefinger an inch apart… and she leaves the room in a huff. We hide from the truth. Oh, we do permit ourselves to know some of the truth - as long as it’s agree-

able to what we already think and treats us favorably. Mostly we’re easy receptors today of lies, greased words and half truths. As the American Melting Pot expands and becomes even more diverse, we are reminded of our founder’s desire that we be a nation of tolerance toward each other as we search for the truth in our lives. Most of us try hard to be tolerant. This means that we deal with others and their beliefs respectfully. G.K. Chesterton once remarked, “I can have regard for someone else’s belief, as I would their pet, without being expected to take it home with me.” Being tolerant does not mean each of us can’t hold to what we have good reason to believe is truth. When our ego becomes too narcissistic, we take it personally if someone else believes different-

ly. We insist they bend their conviction to align with ours. Tragically, violence and religious wars have been waged to accomplish that. What was needed was respectful discussion and openness. When we sincerely believe we hold something of truth, we naturally want to share it with others (as we do all good things.) In this sharing, two factors are to be kept in mind. First, the most powerful way of sharing what we believe to be of truth is to live it in our daily lives. It’s said that as St. Francis of Assisi lay dying, he told his followers gathered around his bed to, “Preach the gospel everywhere, and if necessary, use words.” The second factor in trying to share what we perceive as truth, is not just to tell the truth, but to

tell the truth in love. This means to tell it with concern not only for the truth that is being told, but with concern also for the people to whom it is being told. For everyone to whom we speak carries their own experiences and dreams, fears and doubts, anxieties and beliefs on their backs the way a snail carries his shell. Tolerance means acknowledging and respecting theirs and our own. Author J. Ruth Gendler compares “Truth to a good thief who steals illusions and replaces them with what is real and precious. He can climb over any security fence we have constructed to keep out disturbing influences. And although he can unlock any window or door, he is not interested in breaking in or getting away. He insists on being wel-

comed and invited to stay.” Truth is closer to us than we Father Lou realize, especialGuntzelman ly in our silent times. He is Perspectives always there lingering in the long pauses between difficult questions and possible answers, between our uncertainties and perceived certainties, between the beliefs of one person and the differing beliefs of another. Truth is willing to wait at long time for us. The one thing that Truth will not do is stay away with us without being treasured and loved.

You’ll go cuckoo for coconut-date-almond granola It’s official. For the most part, the kids, at least those attending elementary and high school, are in full session now. It won’t be long before they get into the routine that school days bring. So starting them out with a good breakfast is key. There are always those kids, though, who just don’t want to eat breakfast. If that’s the case at your house, try this chunky granola recipe and even if they run out the door with a handful to eat on the go, it’s better than no breakfast at all.

Chunky granola with dates, coconut, almonds

I like this as a breakfast cereal or over frozen yogurt. 2 cups old fashioned oats

1 cup whole almonds 1 â „2 cup each: flaked coconut and raw cashews or nuts of your choice 1 â „2 cup packed brown sugar or bit more to taste 1 teaspoon ground allspice 2-3 teaspoons cinnamon 1 â „4 cup butter 3 tablespoons honey 1 cup pitted dates, each cut crosswise into thirds or chopped coarsely Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Mix oats, almonds, coconut, cashews, brown sugar, allspice and cinnamon together. Melt butter and honey and pour over granola mixture, blending well. Spread on sprayed baking sheet. Bake 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add dates, mix to separate any clumps.

Continue to bake until golden brown, stirring frequently, about 10 minutes or so more. Store airtight at room temperature, or freeze for up to six months.

Bravo’s dipping sauce

I’ve had so many requests for this I lost count. Carol Ryan found this in Bravo’s cookbook. Carol said she didn’t discard all of the herbs. “I added the herbs to the oil, and added more garlic,� she wrote. 1

â „4 cup Canola oil â „2 tablespoon dried rosemary, thyme, and basil 1 â „2 oz. sun dried tomatoes softened in five tablespoons boiling water for five minutes (see tip below) 1 teaspoon chopped garlic 1 tablespoon salt 11â „2 tablespoons tomato paste 1


â „2 teaspoon pepper 1 tablespoon parsley 31â „4 cups olive oil

In saucepan, bring oil and herbs to a simmer. Lower heat and simmer three minutes, then strain oil and discard herbs. Add tomatoes, garlic, tomato paste, salt and pepper to Canola oil. PurÊe 15 seconds. Add parsley and olive oil, blend additional five seconds. Tip from Rita’s kitchen: A half an ounce equals a tablespoon.

Pat Kellison’s black bean soup like Panera

What a fun story that Pat shared. “When I lived in Los Angeles I learned to love black bean soup. When I returned to Cinci, I could never find black bean soup at any local restaurant, Recently found it at Panera’s and it is comparable to what I have come to love. “It’s like the one I make –

minus the sherry addition. It’s the sherry addition, dollop of sour cream on top and a twist of lemon on top of the sour cream which is the final touch that makes this soup outstanding.� 4 cans (15 oz. each) black beans 3 slices, rough chopped bacon, sliced – DO NOT COOK 1 tablespoon olive oil 12 oz. beer 1 ⠄2 cup water 1 tablespoon dry sherry 3 ⠄4 cup diced onions 1 ⠄2 cup green peppers, diced 2 tablespoons garlic, diced 1 ⠄4 teaspoon cumin 2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce To taste - Adobe seasoning, salt and pepper Heat oil in a pot on medium heat. Add chopped bacon and sautÊ for 1 minute. Add peppers, onions and garlic. SautÊ for approximately two minutes.


‘Flags in Quilts’



Energy Savings Tax Credit


Do not let garlic brown or burn. Add Rita beer and Heikenfeld Ta b a s c o sauce and Rita’s kitchen bring to a boil. Add three cans beans with their juice and bring back to a boil. Add cumin. Using a kitchen blender, puree the soup until smooth. (Will probably have to do this in batches). Add remaining 1 can beans and bring back to boil. Add sherry and season to taste with salt and pepper, and Adobe seasoning if desired. Simmer a little while so soup will cook down some. When warming up, add water to your preference. Serve hot with a dollop of sour cream on top, topped with a lemon twist. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.

Six locations host walk-in HIV testing Almost 300,000 Americans have HIV and don’t know it, according to estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “People walking around unaware they are HIV positive is a major health concern, not only for themselves, but for others they might unknowingly infect,” said Bob Ford, Senior Health Educator. “This new testing time and location adds another opportunity for residents to learn their status, while taking advantage of the convenience of oral testing, which is a mouth swab that provides results in only 20 minutes.” Testing centers are located at: • 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on the third Sunday of each month

NKU workshop to help nonprofit advocacy The Northern Kentucky University Institute for Nonprofit Capacity will present a workshop titled “Skills for Nonprofits: Advocacy and Lobbying” Friday, Oct. 1, from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in room 104 of the NKU Student Union. The workshop is aimed at those wondering if they are allowed to be an advocate for the issues and people served by their nonprofit organization. The answer is yes, and the Oct. 1 workshop will show how those who run nonprofits and their boards can bring their issues and client needs to elected officials. Lobbying by nonprofits is acceptable, and even helps elected officials understand the issues. This workshop will help nonprofit leaders become comfortable with advocating while also demonstrating how advoca-

cy fits with organization mission and how it can impact public policy and decisions. Participants will learn the basics of the legal issues and IRS rules and how to best communicate with elected officials, including how to write letters, what to say in personal visits, how to develop grassroots campaigns and how to present testimony. The workshop will even include an opportunity to get personalized support after the workshop to ensure that organization can be confident advocates for the issues and people they serve. Led by Lori McClung, a Cleveland-based trainer and consultant associated with the nationally recognized nonprofit lobbying resource Center for Lobbying in the Public Interest, the workshop’s presenters are well respected and experienced in government relations.

consequences of abuse. National statistics show that one in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday. In more than 90 percent of these instances, the abuser will be known by the child or the child’s family. Adults who participate in Stewards of Children training will learn how sexual abuse impacts the entire community. They will learn about the long-term and often devastating effects that sexual abuse has on individuals. Most importantly, participants will leave with simple, proactive strategies for protecting children. “The power abusers hold over children comes from secrecy and shame,” said Vickie Henderson, executive director of the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center. “As adults, it is our responsibility to protect the children in our community, and this program will educate and equip adults to carry out that responsibility.” Community organizations who wish to schedule Stewards of Children training should contact Henderson at or by phone at 859-442-3219.

Black holes remain some of the most elusive objects in the known universe. Despite the fact that a black hole does not, by itself, emit any light, they do possess three measurable quantities: mass, charge and spin. The last property, spin, is a measure of how fast a black hole is rotating. Dr. Trippe will discuss how she uses data from X-ray telescopes to measure the spin of super massive black holes at the

center of distant galaxies. Details about the topic for future events will be on the Thomas More website ( two weeks before each open house. The lectures are intended for a general audience.

Call engineer for foundation inspection Do you have foundation cracks, wall cracks, sticking doors and windows and sloping floors? Consult an independent professional engineer first to determine the cause of the problem. Foundation cracks due to differential foundation settlement can be caused by several conditions. The building code requirement for at least 30-inch footing depth was established to resist frost heave from ice expansion in the ground during the winter months. The top layer of soil has gone through these types of changes over the decades and is typically not very compacted. Some of the soils in the Greater Cincinnati area are classified as expansive clay. This type of soil changes volume when the moisture content changes. The soil shrinks in the dry summer and fall, when the rain quits falling as seen by cracks in ground. When the moisture returns to the soil during the winter and spring due to higher quantities of rain and snow, the soil swells back to its previous volume. This type of differential movement can be seen in houses that have cyclical cracks which open and close, doors rubbing the frames part of the year, etc., during the various seasons. Watering along the exterior house

foundation may help control this movement, but should be started very early in the year. Foundations that are supported at different soil depths are likely to settle differentially. This condition is typical when a shallow foundation is placed near a deeper basement foundation or on sloping lots. In older homes, underground waste piping and/or underground downspout piping can crack or break. When the piping fails water leaks along the footing, softening the soil, causing the foundation to settle differentially. The typical repair for differential foundation settlement is underpinning piers that extend the foundation deeper into the soil. There are several types of underpinning repairs. The foundation pier systems offered by foundation repair contractors cost in the range of $130 to $200 per foot of wall to be supported. The work is expensive and there are many variables in the soil, house construction and support methods to consider. A professional engineer can evaluate all of these factors and offer an unbiased opinion for the most permanent and efficient method of stabilization. An independent professional engineer should inspect the property first to

determine the Michael actual cause Montgomery of the differential move- Community ment and Recorder suggest the guest appropriate columnist repairs, if repairs are even necessary. All cracks are not a foundation problem. If foundation repairs are suggested, the engineer can provide an engineering design plan with the appropriate type of pier placed in strategic locations that several contractors can use to make their bid. The plan may be used to obtain a building permit and provide a record of the repair for the future, such as during the sale of the property. Foundation contractors typically send out a sales person that does not have any formal training and needs to sell their product, not an unbiased professional engineer. Only a professional engineer is legally allowed to practice engineering. Contractors cannot suggest they are an engineer, unless they are state licensed professional engineers. Michael Montgomery of Buyers Protection Group, is licensed Engineer in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. He can be reached at 800-285-3001 or www.

Teams meet at Freedom stadium


OMEGA Processing, a Northern Kentucky-based point of sale organization, sponsored a youth baseball event on June 27 at Champion Window Field, the home of the Florence Freedom. “The boys are looking forward to this event and we wanted to put a game together to recognize their achievements. We've watched them throughout the season, but have yet to see them play on such a large field,” president of OMEGA Processing Todd McHugh said. The two teams, the OMEGA Thunder and OMEGA Jags, have played under the OMEGA name and sponsorship for about six years. The OMEGA Jags were city runner up in 2009 in the Greater Cincinnati Knothole Upper Division and the OMEGA Thunder are currently in the Greater Cincinnati Knothole Division.
