Officer named special analyst Dietz will probe crime scenes By Amanda Joering Alley

Fort Thomas Police Officer Michael Dietz is now one of five law enforcement employees in the state to earn the title of Certified Crime Scene Analyst. Dietz, who has been with the department for almost five years, is a member of the 11-person Campbell County Crime Scene Unit, made up of officers from Campbell County Police Department, Fort Thomas Police Department, Bellevue Police Department, Cold Spring Police Department and the Highland Heights Southgate Police Authority. “This is a highly recognized and respected certification, and we’re very proud of Officer Dietz and all the work he’s done,” said Lt. Rich Whitford from Fort Thomas. Dietz said he’s spent about three years Dietz doing crime scene related activities and went through more than 400 hours of training at a crime scene academy before he was able to take the test to get certified through the International Association for Identification. The association is the only certifying board for crime scene analysts. “I see this as a pretty big accomplishment, and I hope to be a big help to the department and the crime scene unit,” Dietz said. Dietz said it was a crime scene class he took in college that inspired him to get into law enforcement. “I really enjoyed the class, and I’m really interested in analyzing crimes scenes and collecting evidence,” Dietz said. Officer Jim Hales, the lead crime scene technician in Campbell County and the unit’s only other certified member, said it’s great to have Dietz get his certification. “It’s an absolutely wonderful thing that I’m hoping every member of our unit will get to do,” Hales said. Currently there are five Certified Crime Scene Analysts in Kentucky and 177 in the United States. For more information about the association and certification visit


City Administrator Donald Martin, Mayor Mary Brown and Eagle Scout candidate Will Modrall take part in the dedication of a new shelter at Riggs Memorial Park. Modrall planned and did construction on the new shelter as his Eagle Scout project.

Boy Scout’s new shelter at Riggs Park dedicated By Amanda Joering Alley

Patrons of Riggs Memorial Park in Fort Thomas now have a new amenity to enjoy thanks to the work of a local Boy Scout. Community members and city officials recently gathered to dedication the park’s new shelter, which was built as resident Will Modrall’s Eagle Scout project. “I grew up a couple blocks away from this park and I used to come here as a kid, so when I started thinking of a possible Eagle Scout projects, this seemed perfect,” Modrall said. One of the requirements to become an Eagle Scout is to complete a community project. Modrall, a member of Troop 70 from St. Thomas, started planning

the shelter in November 2008. After working with the city on the details, construction began in June 2010. Modrall said he and other Scouts in his troop put in about 300 man hours on the job, removing nine dump trucks of dirt and rocks by hand. Using money donated by park benefactor Charlie Riggs, Modrall had private contractors come in to help with the shelter construction. Mayor Mary Brown said the city is fortunate to have Scouts like Modrall, who have completed various project in the city throughout the years. “I’m so proud of the scout program and the Scouts in Fort Thomas,” Brown said. “These are the future leaders of our city.” Along with planning and con-

structing the shelter, Modrall was also responsible for getting council’s approval to get the name of the park changed from West Southgate Park to the Riggs Memorial Park, after the Riggs family, who donated the land for the park and contributed funds and labor to improving the park. As part of the Eagle Scout process, the project has been approved by the city and Modrall’s scout leader, and now goes to the local and national board of reviews before Modrall officially become an Eagle Scout. Modrall said he’s happy to see the completed project and hopes many people enjoy the shelter. “It’s great to drive by now and see a family enjoying a picnic under the shelter,” Modrall said.

the past (i.e. U.S. 27 widening) and that more is on the way soon. “The state is going to do not just an overlay, but an in-depth re-working of I275 through Campbell County,” Pendery said. The state also has planned work for I-275 through Kenton and Boone counties at some point, he said. Pendery said the maintenance requirements of the interstates in the county

haven’t been kept up with well in the past, and it’s going to be a more expensive fix now. More than patching is required, he said. In Campbell County alone the cost of the roadwork could be as much as $30 million, Pendery said. Pendery said in his discussions with transportation officials, a total of as much as 10 inches of pavement might be put down on I-275 to essen-

Attorney candidates District 1 candidates focus on funding differ on experience Positions on By Chris Mayhew

By Chris Mayhew

The Campbell County Attorney’s race pits a candidate touting a career in the private sector against a candidate espousing the value of a career spent in public service. The Nov. 2 election will feature a choice between incumbent Democrat James A. Daley and Republican challenger Steven J. Franzen. Daley, 54, of California, was appointed by Judgeexecutive Steve Pendery to the post in January 2009 after spending five years as the chief deputy at the county’s jail, assisting with the jail budget and overseeing litigation. He was an assistant county attorney from 1999 to 2003, and the county’s interim jailer from 1998-99. Franzen, 54, of Fort Thomas, is an attorney practicing since 1985 with an office in Newport, handling cases in court including planning and zoning cases, employment cases, and criminal law as both a defense attorney and prosecutor. Franzen said although he has experience writing ordinances and working with local government, including 23 years as the city attorney for Highland Heights, that’s just one aspect of his experience. Having never been involved in state or local government except for five years as an assistant county attorney, Franzen said he wants to bring an outsider’s perspective to the office. Franzen said Daley is part of the same group of people that have controlled the county attorney’s office for 30 years, and change is needed. Franzen said he wants the county to examine becoming self-insured, something that could save $100,000 or more each year.

Movies, dining, events and more

Franzen Daley “I really do think that is something that could benefit the taxpayers of Campbell County, and I really don’t believe my opponent has the relevant experience to pull it off,” Franzen said. Daley said he sees his experience with police and working in the public sector as his greatest strength for why he’s the best person for the office. Daley said after initially being a trooper and detective for the Kentucky State Police early in his career, he then spent three years representing KSP’s legal office, and 1.5 years as commander of that legal office. Having worked with the jail since 1998, he’s familiar with lawsuits lodged against the jail, which helps make him well qualified to be county attorney. “I think my background makes me a perfect fit for it,” Daley said. Daley said he also knows how to operate a private business, having operated his own private practice continuously since 1989 including representing several large companies. Daley said he’s spent his entire career trying to be of service to the community. “I’ve worked hard to protect seniors and children, and he’s chosen to represent criminals and doing criminal work as opposed to representing the people,” Daley said of Franzen.

Saving money for county taxpayers is the stated goal of both the Republican and Democratic candidates for the District 1 county commissioner seat, but each candidate has a unique focus when it comes to the budget. Democrat Michael Schulkens, 59, of Cold Spring, and Republican Brian Painter, 50, of Alexandria, are both vying for the open District 1 commissioner seat in the Nov. 2 election. Mark Hayden, RWilder, chose not to seek reelection. Painter, who owns Vineyard Hardwoods in Alexandria, said the county commissioners need to be focused on trimming the budget wherever possible to cut spending. Painter said when it comes to attracting jobs, the county needs to capitalize on Campbell County Judgeexecutive Steve Pendery’s message that the Fiscal Court spends less per capita than almost all other Northern Kentucky governments. “If we spend less per capita than many other areas in Northern Kentucky, we need to tout that, and we need to recruit on that,” Painter said. Schulkens, an attorney, said he is campaigning on his experience including a record of working with a team in Newport as the city solicitor. The team helped foster job creation to increase revenue and allow for a lowering in property tax rates, Schulkens said. Schulkens said his opponent talks about cutting budget expenditures in a time of need, but that’s an


Painter Schulkens attitude needed all the time. “In the city of Newport we cut our expenses, we cut our payroll, not at a time, now when it was urgent, and not a time now when we are in a recession. The city of Newport began to do that on a regular basis during my tenure there as part of a team,” he said. The city went from 165 to 135 employees during his tenure, and although the city budget didn’t go down, the city did increase its services, he said. Painter said he has a the county needs to look at elective costs like how much it spends on the bus system. “We do need the system, but they’re just like everyone else, they can take can take a cut,” Painter said. The county needs to look at what it is paying into the Ohio Indiana Kentucky Council of Regional Governments, he said. Recreational areas the county maintains also needs to be done without a cash infusion each year, he said.

Smoking ban: District 1 Commissioner candidates Michael Schulkens and Brian Painter are both openly against any legislation prohibiting smoking in privately owned indoor spaces. Government change: Painter said he believes the citizens of the county are smart enough to make up their own mind of whether to switch to an eight magistrate system elected from voters in their district or keep the three commissioner system where voters throughout the county get to vote on all three commissioners. Schulkens said he is adamantly against the idea of switching to the magistrate system and that Painter is ducking the issue by not taking a stand one way or another. “We’ve just got to do a better job managing our funds, trying to select things that we can, you know, look at trimming,” Painter said. “Of course the last thing we want to do is look at personnel.” Painter said how the county can help increase employment in the private sector is by making better use of the electronic Geographic Information System (GIS) to help identify parcels developable parcels. Corridors ripe for


improvement include along Ky. 8 in Silver Grove, along the AA Highway and in Wilder, and from Alexandria south to the Sara Lee plant, he said. Schulkens said in part because of job creation in Newport, the city’s property tax rate dropped during his tenure with Newport from about $6 per $1,000 of assessed value to just over $2 per $1,000 of assessed value. “I was part of a team that took an innovative approach and not just to say that it can’t be done,” he said. “We created a lot of revenue sources to the city of Newport.” Schulkens said he wants to take an innovative approach to attract revenue to the county, and he’s not saying attract businesses. “Sometimes you need to bolster up businesses already here to keep them from moving to another county or area,” he said. Schulkens said anyone can talk about creating an industrial area and attracting businesses, but he has experience in fostering that. “If we can do it in Newport, we can do it in the county with the same approach,” he said.

How to buy local focus of meetings By Chris Mayhew

If people don’t already know where to buy organically or locally grown foods, free information sessions in October have been planned to solve that problem. Campbell County Extension Service Agent for Agriculture and Natural Resources Don Sorrell has set up a series of buying local information sessions. Sorrell is bringing information about a local organic farm, wineries, farmer’s markets, honey bee products and gift baskets of locally made items, as well as how to buy locally raised beef cuts from local farmers. The freezer beef program, started in March, attracted the interest of more than 120 people at a separate March meeting, Sorrell said. But, many people still don’t know about the program, he said.

“The idea when I put these programs together was to take the program out to different locations,” Sorrell said. The sessions will also cover topics including the advantages of buying locally grown and processed foods, he said. People are starting to look at where their food is coming from, and it’s good for people from urban areas to connect with farmers that don’t live too far from them, Sorrell said. There’s also the issue of how much gasoline is used to ship food from far away places, he said. “And with vegetables it’s a combination of taste and variety and supporting the local economy and farmers,” Sorrell said. One of the topics Sorrell will be talking about is the new Campbell County Proud Gift Basket program through the Campbell County Farmland Work Group.

Times and locations Campbell County Extension Service Agent for Agriculture and Natural Resources Don Sorrell will present options for buying from local farmers at two upcoming information session dates. • Tuesday, Oct. 5: Meetings will be at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Campbell County Extension office, 3500 Alexandria Pike, Highland Heights. • Thursday, Oct. 7: Meetings will be at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Nevada Building in Fort Thomas, 1049 South Fort Thomas Ave. For information or to register call Sorrell at 572-2600 or visit the website “It’s another avenue for our farmers to make revenue from their farm products,” said Linda Grizzell, an employee of the Campbell County Conservation District, which works in association with the farmland work group.

Test results a mixed bag for schools and Chris Mayhew

Campbell County’s public schools are making strides toward meeting all their goals despite some schools falling short on state testing. The Kentucky Department of Education has released the federal No Child Left Behind Act reports based upon results from the Kentucky Core Content Testing students took in the 2009-’10 school year. Bellevue Independent School District In Bellevue, only the district’s elementary school, Grandview Elementary, met its Adequate Yearly Progress goals under NCLB with its 2010 results. The high school didn’t meet its math requirements for the second year in a row, putting the school in a “improvement year 1” status, meaning the district must offer options for students to transfer schools if possible. Dan Ritter, the district’s director of curriculum, said judging by other areas where the district is doing better, he is surprised at the scores. “It’s disappointing, but there are just so many factors that contribute to the scores,” Ritter said. “We need to see what else we can do to support our students and teachers.” Ritter said the district is working to break down the information by student and has an intervention plan in place to help those students who aren’t meeting goals. Fort Thomas Indepen dent Schools As in years past, all five schools in Fort Thomas met their AYP, but that doesn’t mean they can take it easy, said Superintendent John Williamson. “It gets more and more

including tutoring. District officials were unable to be reached for comment. Silver Grove Independent Schools The one school district continued to not meet AYP on NCLB, and did not meet AYP in either reading or math. Superintendent Ken Ellis took over the school over this summer after former superintendent Danny Montgomery retired after five years at the helm. Jamie Baker was also hired as the principal of the school this summer to replace the outgoing principal who left to take a superintendent’s job in a Western Kentucky county school district. Ellis said the district received credit from the state for how many students in its elementary school either improved to proficient or distinguished in both reading and math. “Our elementary school did very very well this year, they moved up so much this year we’re in what you call


Medical Coding and Billing Program

‘safe harbor’,” Ellis said. The elementary receives a “noteworthy status” for progress made and helps to offset the test results for the middle school and high school, he said. “If we wouldn’t have done that we would have gotten some more sanctions against us,” Ellis said. The district has received a school improvement grant for the current school year, and is using it to have both a reading and a math specialist in the school working with students four days a week with a goal of more progress on the upcoming year’s tests, he said.

Southgate Independent School District In Southgate Independent, a 40 percent increase in enrollment didn’t stop the school from once again meetings it AYP goals. “We were glad to see that with the change in population, we were still able to meet our goals,” said Superintendent Jim Palm. “I’m really proud of our school, we’re like the little train that could.” Palm said while they focused on instruction last year, the focus will be on curriculum and content this year to prepare students for increasing goals.

By 2014, all students will need to be at 100 percent proficency. Campbell County School District As a district, Campbell County slipped back to not meeting AYP. The district met AYP on NCLB in 2009 after not meeting AYP in 2008.

Colts Get Fit, a new after-school program started by parent Kelly Glaser, recently began at the school. “Obesity is a big problem these days,” Glaser said. “I think its important that we find ways to get kids fit and get them moving.” Glaser said after taking blood pressures at the school and noticing that many were too high, she came up with the idea to start the club. About two-thirds of the school’s students have signed up for the club, which meets twice a week for a walk/run near the school. The days of the club vary to accommodate various schedules. “Our main goal is to let the kids get fit while having fun in a noncompetitive, structured environment,” Glaser said. Fifth-grader Sean Williams said he joined the club because it gives him a chance to stay healthy while hanging out with his friends. Jillian Fields, also in fifth grade, said she likes having a chance to get some exercise. “Besides soccer, I don’t really have a chance to get outside and exercise as much during the school year because of homework and everything,” Fields said. The club is being led and

Glaser said she hopes to eventually get grants to fund the club so it can purchase student incentives and other physical fitness equipment. For more information about the program or to get an upcoming schedule, contact the school at 572-2680.

Will Hachleutner and Ben Glaser get ready for their run.

Students celebrate ‘Kids Day’ in style By Chris Mayhew

Students at Grant’s Lick Elementary School dressed as rock stars, movie stars and other personas for an annual community involvement celebration in their honor known as Kentucky Kids Day Tuesday, Sept. 21. Parents, uncles, aunts, police officers, firefighters and members

of a neighboring church all volunteered in shifts to serve the children a feast at lunch and greet the students as they arrived in the morning to school. Schools throughout Kentucky participate in the annual day. Established in 1985, the goal of Kentucky Kids Day is to set aside one day for students to “send the message to each child that he or she is a special and

unique individual who is respected and loved,” according to the Kentucky Parent Teacher Association’s website The day is a wonderful way for the children to see what goes on inside the school is important to community members, and also for the community volunteers to get to know the school, said Debbie Montgomery, a paraeducator at the school.

“It gives the community a chance to come into the school and see what’s going on,” Montgomery said. Dolly Hesler, a great-aunt of one of the students, came to the school to serve the students lunch as part of a contingent of volunteers from Grant’s Lick Baptist Church. The church is situated directly across the street from the school. Kids Day is just as much fun for the adults as it is for the students, she said. Members of the church often volunteer and help out in any way they can for multiple events throughout the school year, Hesler said. “We support just about anything they do because most of the kids at church go here,” she said.

NCC announces seven AP Scholars Seven students at Newport Central Catholic have earned the designation of AP Scholar by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Program (AP Exams). The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program offers students the opportunity to take challenging college-level courses while still in high school, and to receive college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful perform-

ance on the AP Exams. About 18 percent of the more than 1.8 million high school students in more than 16,000 secondary schools worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to merit the recognition of AP Scholar. Students took AP Exams in May 2010 after completing challenging collegelevel courses at their high schools. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP

Exams. At Newport Central Catholic, three students, Brian Hogle, Nolan Johnson, and Cole Little qualified for the AP Scholar with Distinction by earning an average grade of at least 3.50 on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams. Four NCC students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with grades of 3 or higher. The AP Scholars are Natalie Buller, Catherine Butts, Olivia Hagedorn, and Daniel Merril. Of this year’s award recipients at NCC two were juniors. Natalie Buller and Olivia Hagedorn have at least one more year in which to complete college level work/additional AP courses and earn another AP Scholar Award.

NKU Communication professor feminist teaching/mentoring Northern Kentucky University communication professor Jimmie Manning has been selected by the Organization for the Study of Communication, Language and Gender to receive the 2010 Feminist Teacher-Mentor Award. Manning was selected from numerous applicants to receive the award at the organization’s annual meeting last week in Tampa. “We had multiple outstanding nominees,” said Cerise L. Glenn, the award committee chair. “The award committee felt that Dr. Manning’s work and commitment to feminist studies and mentoring students embodies the spirit of the award.” Manning is in his fifth year as assistant professor for NKU’s communication graduate program and serves as director of the program. He teaches courses in relationships, gender and sexuality, informatics and media criticism. The award seeks to honor one exemplary feminist teacher-mentor who

has inspired students and colleagues by modeling feminist ideals of caring, community power-sharing and commitment while also earning individual and collaborative records of achievement. Manning’s nomination packet particularly highlighted his servicelearning courses for undergraduate and graduate students. The award nomination was submitted by Manning’s former students. “His classes generate open, honest discussion because Dr. Manning creates a classroom environment that feels like a family community, where everyone’s ideas are valued,” said Kathleen CoxBarker, a student in the program. Stephanie Isaacs, a communication studies alumna preparing for law school, said Manning goes above and beyond for every student. “While on a servicelearning trip to Kansas with him and a group of other students, he even tried to schedule an appointment

for me with someone from the University of Kansas’s law program,” she said. “Jimmie Manning is indefatigable, and an inspiration,” said Charles Morris, a communication professor at Boston College who supported Manning’s nomination. “He has turned the work others do only begrudgingly into an art form, and a model of community. From wherever they come, Jimmie Manning’s gifts can be measured in heart and intelligence, and his many colleagues are enriched by his bounty.” The Organization for the Study of Communication, Language and Gender began in 1978. Since that time, it has sought to provide an international forum for professional discussion, presentation of research and demonstration of creative projects in the areas of communication, language and gender. The organization hosts an annual convention and sponsors the interdisciplinary journal Women & Language.

NKU mock election focuses on U.S. Senate race Once again, Northern Kentucky University is inviting students, faculty and staff to vote in the online mock election, first developed by NKU’s College of Informatics and Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement for use in the 2008 presidential election. This political season, the mock election features the U.S. Senate race in Kentucky, in which Democrat Jack Conway and Republican Rand Paul are the major candidates. The mock election will remain open for NKU voting through Election Day Nov. 2. Up-to-the-minute results can be viewed at Anyone with an NKU email address can vote once. Each voter is also asked to complete a short survey asking what three issues and two candidate characteristics matter most to them in this year’s election. The online voting is intended to raise awareness and participation in the senate race, one of the most closely watched elections in the nation this fall. The mock election is open to NKU students, faculty and staff. The election uses an innovative online infrastructure that allows a viewer to click on the results and data dive to see how different groups voted; for example, are freshmen voting differently from seniors? “The mock election is one of several initiatives on campus this fall designed to encourage interest in the 2010 election and, more generally, to emphasize the importance of full participation in civic life and democratic processes,” said Mark Neikirk, executive director of NKU’s Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement. In the 2008 mock election, about 3,000 people voted. The economy was the top issue, polling around 70 percent among both Barack Obama voters and John McCain voters. In the current mock election the economy ranks No.

Sydney Ossege, Corrine Carnohan and Patsy Harrington placed in spots 6-8 for Highlands. Ashley Gish was 10th and Cassidy Hill 15th. Of that group, Gish, a junior, is

the only Bluebird to matriculate in the easternmost wing of the Highlands campus. All the others are middle-schoolers. The winner Ossege is a seventh-grader. “We ran a lot of middle schoolers,” Highlands head coach Dan Baker said. “One day someone does well, the other day it’s someone else. We have a lot of young talent. They’re good kids and they work with you.” Hailee Rose led the Camels in third place, and Lorin Martin was fifth.

Dayton’s top runner was Chris Johnson in 20th. Brossart won the overall championship using a formula that combined the top finishers in each gender.

hard in the offseason,” Gesenhues said. “From where we were when I took over in 2008 to be in contention in the region says a lot about how hard we’ve worked.” Highlands has a 7-5-1 record in matches, which includes losses to Moeller and Covington Catholic.

John Gesenhues is hoping his young Highlands boys’ golf team can contend for the Region 8 championship Sept. 28 at Pendleton County. The Bluebirds dive in off a strong springboard after winning the Division II boys’ golf championship in the Northern Kentucky Athletic Conference tournament Sept. 20. It is the first conference title in Gesenhues’ three-year tenure. Highlands posted an outstanding 318 to beat rival Newport Central Catholic by 29 shots. Brossart was third at 350. “That was pretty cool,” Gesenhues said. “It was a great accomplishment for us from where we’ve come over a three-year period. For us being so young with three eighth-graders and a freshman is really good for us. It was a nice day where everybody played well and they were focused on what was going on.” Highlands showed strong depth in the tourney.

My name is Chris Meyer and I am the Grand Knight for the Knights of Columbus Dejaco Council No. 5220 in Alexandria, Ky. We had our event called Opportunity day on (Sept.) 19, where we have any handicapped kids or adults in the area out to our council for a day of fun.

Have you or someone you know been affected by bedbugs. What precautions are you taking? What solutions have you tried? Send your answer to “” with Chatroom in the subject line.

How far do you think the Reds will go in the playoffs? Why? “My answer: first round. “Why? Because whenever I get enthusiastic about our teams, be it the Reds or Bengals, they lose. If I’m apathetic or pessimistic, it might help them.” Bill B. “Good pitching is the key to winning postseason baseball. It will have to come together strong for Reds pitching in October. “We need see strong outings by starting pitchers Arroyo, Cueto and Volquez. Furthermore, Cordero will pull it together and nail down some saves. “I am going to call Reds win the World Series in six games, at home. By the way, I made the same call in ‘90. I was off by two games!” D.M.






“I really, really want them to go all the way. However, inconsistent performance, I’m afraid, will be their downfall. Hope I’m wrong.” B.N. “Positive thinking. They will go to the World Series.” S.B-T. “I think the Red’s will do well in the playoffs mainly because they have all-around strength and are working as a team getting help from everyone. “I predict they will make it to the World Series and definitely be in the running to win the whole thing!” K.K.

A thank you to Fort Thomas friends

When our time on this earth passes and we ponder our lives, we shall ask ourselves did we affect positive change for our fellow man. I can say without question that the answer will be yes. Through the contributions of the community I proudly call my home, change has touched this tiny corner of Africa. With the helps of some very caring and dedicated people in organizing this tremendous project, we have been able to improve the lives of all the children who currently attend or will attend Don Bosco high school of Rushaki, Rwanda. The Bibles and Basketball project achieved its goal of providing English language Bibles to every student as well as gave a new, high quality basketball court for the children of this community to play and exercise. The children of Africa are the hardest working children in the world. From the time they are big enough to carry a jug of water,

they are put to hard manual labor to help the family. The carefree playtime we all cherish as Americans is over for Rwandan children by age 5. In building this basketball court we have given the students of the school and children of the community a safe, long lasting place to play. A place where they can leave the world of work at the sidelines and be a kid; that chance to enjoy freedom-even if it’s only for the thirty minutes of a play to ten pick-up game-is something that all children, everywhere, deserve. The money spent on the English language Bibles is a valuable investment. For the students learning English, this will be a great tool in helping them better their futures. As so many of us know, English has become the language of business around the world. By providing an English language text, we have given the students an aide in improving their language skills. Empowering students with the English lan-

guage will allow them to be competitive in the job markets of today and tomorrow. Through their hard work and the dedication of their teachers, whether it’s a Rwandan teacher or a volunteer teacher such as the Peace Corps service I have been a part of, these students will go on to become valuable contributors in business, politics or education. Helping their families, communities, and nation prosper is the true goal of development. From my adopted community to my home community, let me share my deepest gratitude and appreciation. America’s greatest strength lies not in her military or her economy but in the generosity and kindness of her people. No better example of this greatness can be found than right here in this project and its completion. T. Scott McLaren of Fort Thomas is serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Rwanda.

Plain truth about real pain Just by looking at me you can’t really tell. The only sign that I’ve been through nearly 17 years of chronic pain is a faint 3-inch, diagonal scar above my left clavicle, caused by the removal of a rib, muscles and scar tissue to relieve nerve pressure. For most that endure the torturous journey of chronic pain, there are no signs at all. Pain, of course, is completely invisible. September is National Pain Awareness Month for this very reason. According to data from the National Centers for Health Statistics, 76.2 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. This is more than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. Often, and unfortunately, family members and friends don’t believe their loved one is in pain because they can’t see it. Maybe you’re trying to get out of scrubbing the bathroom or raking the yard. Believe them. The pain is real. Seventeen years ago this November, the Monday after Thanksgiving weekend 1993, I woke up and my life was never the same. I’d had a minor fall a couple weeks prior, a few odd pains down my left arm and in my neck during the time in between, but nothing to even catch my attention, except in retrospect. That morning, something wasn’t right.

Support group

If you would like to take part in a support group now forming for those with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome or chronic pain or their loved ones, please e-mail Cyndi Ellis at Ellis, whose husband, Patrick, has RSD, is working to form the group due to a lack of one in the area, she said. By the end of the week, I had pain like fire burning a path from my neck into my left shoulder and all the way down my arm into my hand. The pain has never left. It has altered its rhythm, its intensity at times, its depth of fire, its scope of possession of my body. Name a type of doctor, treatment, or therapy, I’ve tried it. I know what sitting all day at my desk at work and typing will do – muscle spasms, increased pain from holding my arms in front of me and literally holding my head up all day. I wear a TENS unit (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) nearly every day, all day during work hours to the point of lesions on my neck from the electrode pads. The electrical buzz coming through the pads has an effect of dulling pain. I receive monthly Botox shots to somewhat lessen the intense neck spasms that pull my head

parallel to my shoulder and cinch my entire left arm inward and claw-like. I remind Amy myself I am capaMonahan ble of performing Editor’s everyday tasks Notebook such as laundry or washing dishes or changing bed sheets because I have two arms and two hands. But if I push myself too much, (after all I’ve already worked all day, and this is my limit,) I will literally be bedridden with intense pain. I’ve had to learn to humble myself and ask for help. This isn’t easy to do, especially when one looks perfectly healthy. Additionally, since chronic pain sufferers’ pain is indeed, chronic, masking it becomes a way of coping. Who wants to hear about today’s symptoms and ails? Only those very close to me know when I’m having a “bad pain day,” and perhaps the opposite is true, too. I rarely offer up details except when asked. At times, I am almost thankful for the scar I bear, one outward mark of all the years of pain. It says what I cannot. Amy Monahan is a community editor with the Community Press newspapers. Reach her at

Empty churches, crowded pathways and loneliness Over most of my many years as a priest, when I offered Sunday Mass it was done in a crowded church. Sometimes only standing room. No longer is that so except for Christmas and Easter. The Cincinnati Enquirer (Sept. 19, 2010) carried a front page story about diminishing Mass attendance in Catholic churches. Except for non-denominational groups, many Christian churches are experiencing the same problem. More than one-quarter of American adults have left the faith of their childhood. So says the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life based on reviews with 35,000 adults. The people who are not at church on Sunday are not at home brooding over the church’s faults. They are sleeping, shopping at the mall, working in their yard, having team practices, jogging, walking, watching football or baseball, etc. They want the church to be there when they want it, even if they do not want it very often. These are not bad people. There is no conscious conspiracy against going to church, values and spirituality. What is happening is

that a number of important factors have been happening over the last 50 years that Father Lou h a v e Guntzelman brought us this Perspectives to point. Now it has become difficult not just to think about God or to pray, but to have any interior depth whatsoever. Father Ronald Rolheiser writes, “It is not that we have anything against God, depth and spirit, it is just that we are habitually too preoccupied to have any of these show up on our radar screens. We are more busy than bad, more distracted than nonspiritual, and more interested in the movie theater, the sports stadium, and the shopping mall and the fantasy life they produce than we are in church.” Besides this busyness and preoccupation, another significant factor that has “gotten to us” is individualism. After countless centuries, the modern world is shifting from being ruled by the power of the mace and the miter. Now spiritual

Fraud alert one way to prevent identity theft One of the most popular ways for criminals to steal your identity is to try to get a credit card in your name. If they succeed they can run up thousands of dollars in charges, and you may not find out until the thief has fled. Amy Winegardner of Wyoming suspected someone was trying to steal her identity when a financial company notified her about a credit card for which she had never applied. “I got a letter saying my husband and I had applied for a credit card and that we were declined. I would never had applied for one, and I’m like surprised,” she said. Winegardner was not only surprised but a little worried too about what such a credit application really means. “I think somebody got information on me and applied for a credit card and … but my credit’s not the best so it was declined – which was great,” she said. This is not the first time something like this has happened. “In 2008 there was (an unauthorized) withdrawal out of my checking account from a German file hosting company,” Winegardner said. I had Winegardner check her credit report on the Internet. She said she hadn’t checked it in quite a while. She needed to look for unusual things like unauthorized credit card applications and accounts. Winegardner checked and found nothing out of the ordinary. However, because someone did try to open a credit card in her name, she filed a fraud alert with the credit bureau. She says she never realized this was an action she could and should take. “No, I didn’t until we

were reading the ‘ requently a s k e d q u e s tions.’ Like it said, the initial alert Howard Ain is for 90 Hey Howard! days and t h e extended one is for seven years.” You can place an extended fraud alert on your credit bureau report if you’ve been the victim of identity theft and provide the credit bureau with a police identity theft report. Fraud alerts prevent an identity thief from opening any accounts in your name. You only need to contact one of the three credit reporting companies to have an alert placed on all their reports. When a business sees the alert it must first verify your identity before issuing credit. Be advised, this may cause some delays if you apply for credit. You should check your credit report yearly and can do so for free at Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12. Write to him at 12 WKRC-TV, 1906 Highland Ave., Cincinnati 45219.

authority is seen as especially being held in the hands of the individual person and his or her conscience. “Habits of the Heart” is a successful book first published in the mid-1980s. One of its chief observations was the growing number of youth and adults who looked to themselves alone as the possessors of spiritual truth, not organized religion. As a result of this book, a study was done. One of the participants in the study was Sheila Larson, a young nurse. She expressed her idea of religion and spirituality thus: “I believe in God. I’m not a religious fanatic. I can’t remember the last time I went to church. My faith has carried me a long way. It’s Sheilaism. Just my own little voice.” So succinctly did she verbalize extreme individualism that ever since the name Sheilaism designates many who live their lives accordingly. The spirituality revolution that is going on assumes that the individual knows best. The idea is that a person who is independent of organized religion and from centuries of religious indoctrination and

tradition, becomes more free and truly spiritual. They bristle at authoritative approaches to their personal spirituality and relationship with God. Individualism usually leads to isolation and loneliness. It encourages us to think of ourselves as selfsufficient and self-enclosed. What is lost is a sense of communal togetherness, support during stressful times of life and death, and the absence of fulfilling rituals of passage such as bap-

tisms, weddings, funerals, etc. As the years go by and questions about life and death multiply, extreme individualists experience an increasing spiritual illiteracy. They lack a fuller and sustaining grasp of crucial beliefs such as baptism, the incarnation, resurrection, redemption, and an adult understanding of scripture. Authoritarianism and poor education by church leaders, and individualism and lack of openness by

church members, are the two things that will keep lessening the effectiveness of religion in our day. God’s Spirit is trying to lead us forward. Let’s not drag our feet.

Tempt them with some homemade apple rollups Today’s the first day of autumn and even though the temperature is at an alltime high, it still feels like fall outside, what with the leaves falling from the trees and Rita crinkling underfoot, Heikenfeld and the Rita’s kitchen apples ripening on our tree. (We don’t have many apples this year, and I have to be vigilant about picking them before the deer find them). And I’ve had a slew of requests to make homemade applesauce and “fruit rollups like you buy but without all the artificial stuff.” I’m happy to say I can help on both counts!

Homemade applesauce, fruit rollups/leather

I make this from apples, but pears work well, too. Making your own lets you be in control of the amount of sugar, if any, you add.

To see my online video for making homemade applesauce, check out my blog at

Pink Ribbon lunch

What: Ninth annual pink ribbon program and luncheon with Cat Cora. Where: Duke Energy Convention Center, downtown Cincinnati When: Monday, Oct. 4, at noon Details: Visit or call 1-866-577-7465.


Wash, core and cut 3 to 5 pounds of fruit into chunks (apples or pears). Leave skin on because the pectin in the peel helps remove cholesterol.

Cooking options:

Crockpot – Spray pot. Put fruit in. Cook on low for six to eight hours or high for three to five hours until fruit is soft enough to mash. Stovetop – Place in heavy or nonstick large pot. Add up to 1 cup water, cider or apple juice (to keep fruit from sticking), and simmer until fruit is soft. You may have to add a bit more liquid. Careful – the mixture tends to sputter up. Oven – (my preferred method). I use a restaurant steam table pan but use anything that has sides and which will hold fruit. Spray pan. Cook in 350-degree oven until soft.

To purée:

Run through food mill or sieve, blender or food processor. Or just chunk up with a potato masher. If


Day three of making homemade fruit rollup. desired, sweeten to taste with sugar or a substitute. I usually don’t add any sweetener. Add cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice to taste. Do this while fruit is still warm. Now you have the best tasting applesauce ever!

Drying to make fruit rollups/leather:

Spray cookie sheets. Pour puree evenly onto sheets, about 1⁄4-inch deep. I dry mine in the sun. (I’ll cover with cheesecloth if bees are a problem and bring it in at night or if it rains). It takes about three


days to make the rollups. You can also dry it in a warm oven. Mine only goes down to 170 so I prop the door open. You don’t want it to cook too quickly or it will be hard. It will take anywhere from four to eight hours or more depending upon the kind of apples, etc. If it’s late in the evening and it’s still not done, turn the oven off with the leather still in, and proceed in the morning.

How to tell if leather is done:

It should pull up from the pan in one sheet.

Local artist demonstrates oil painting in Berea


Readers on vacation

Chloe Clements, 5, of Southgate vacationed with Shannon Daniels of Fort Thomas in Cocoa Beach, Fla.

Mark Downey of Alexandria will demonstrate oil painting from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea Saturday, Oct. 23. Downey was born and raised in the state of Washington and began creating images of the natural world in third grade, when he produced 30 depictions of western birds with crayons. He began painting the scenery of the Pacific Northwest at the age of 15 when a high school art teacher mentored and kindled his passion for capturing nature with paint. Downey’s early career began as an Army illustrator in Vietnam, which led to a magazine illustration job

in Los Angeles. He worked as a freelance commercial artist for many years, as well as doing illustrations for children’s books. In 2005 Downey moved to Kentucky where the bluegrass landscape attracted his attention. Downey has been painting for more than 40 years focusing on ‘realism’ and the depiction of regional landscapes and indigenous wildlife. He refers to his paintings as ‘traditional realism’ and his subject matter is researched in the field. While he sometimes paints onsite, he also takes his drawings and research back to the studio for preparation and composition. Many hours are spent on

The challenge was issued when Jeff Wyler, CEO of one of the nation’s largest volume dealership groups, decided to donate $100 from the proceeds of every vehicle sold during the month of August from every Tri-state Jeff Wyler dealership with a goal of reaching $100,000. The goal was reached. Local organizations were encouraged by a media campaign to submit their requests to the website of the Wyler Family Foundation a 501(c)3 organized in 2009 by Jeff Wyler and his family. Last week, the members of the Wyler Family Foundation met and chose 36 worthy causes to support. Letters of congratulations and donations in the form of checks ranging in value from $250 to $20,000 have been mailed. “As members of this community, my family believes it is important to give back to the area that helped build our business and enriches all of our lives,” Wyler said. “The last several years have not been easy for the automotive sector, and fortunately, we’ve made many correct decisions along the way, but the economic slowdown has seriously impacted local charitable organizations’ donations. These organizations needed help now, and these donations will help them fund their programs. My only regret is we had to deny some requests due to the volume of response. I sincerely wish all of the organizations the very best.” “It is easy to pride ourselves on our people, our brands, our seven local locations, and our customer service, but to be able to call somebody up and tell them that we have a couple thousand dollars for their efforts is very rewarding, we hope to do it again,” said David Wyler, president.

After 11 years, the mother-daughter duo of Kathy and Sarah Henderson of Fort Thomas have accomplished their goal of visiting 31 ball parks across the country, and in Montreal. Each game ended with the two sharing a high-five as they left the stadium. Sarah, who is a sports marketing major at NKU, scrapbooked their trips to each park. Sarah’s father Jim and sister Christy have joined the two for trips to a few parks. Shown are: Jim, Sarah, Christy and Kathy.

will Industries plans a “stand down” event Friday, Oct. 1, at the Bellevue Veterans Club, in Northern Kentucky. The purpose of the event is to draw attention to the needs of homeless veterans and to offer a variety of services for these individuals. Activities will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The phrase “stand down” comes from an old military term relating to a time that military personnel can have their personal needs attended to. During the event veterans will have the opportunity to receive services from more than 30 service providers including: Medical, dental,

eye care, social services, employment, career opportunities, legal aid and expungement. Members of the Veterans Administration will be available to provide benefits counseling. A free hot lunch will be provided from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. An opening ceremony will take place at 9 a.m. at the Veterans Club. This year’s event is being sponsored by Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries, the Bellevue Veteran’s Club, the Northern Kentucky One Stop, and the Cincinnati Veterans Administration. Goodwill Industries has been offering services to

NKY to participate in breastfeeding competition NKY to participate in breastfeeding competition Local mothers will breastfeed together in an effort to gather the most breastfeeding moms in one location. At 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 2, a call will go out to “latch on,” and the mothers and babies gathered at the Boone County Extension will begin to breastfeed. Runners will circulate around the room to count them as part of a worldwide contest to see which loca-

tion can gather the most breastfeeding babies at one time. The Northern Kentucky Breastfeeding Challenge 2010 will take place from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 2, at the Boone County Extension, 6028 Camp Ernst Road, Burlington. It is sponsored by the Northern Kentucky Breastfeeding Coalition. Besides the breastfeeding count at 11 a.m., the event will also feature information on local breastfeeding

resources, a raffle and snacks. Only 54 percent of Kentucky babies born in 2009 were ever breastfeed, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Only Louisiana had a lower breastfeeding rate. Mothers who plan to participate in the Oct. 2 challenge are asked to register in advance on the Health Department’s website at or by calling Nancy Merk at 859363-2113.

Spring forward this fall by planting bulbs If you’d like to light up your yard next spring, fall is the time to do it! Fall is the time to plant spring flowering bulbs such as tulips, daffodils (becoming more and more popular as they are tough, durable, come back every year, usually consistent bloomers, great for naturalizing, and the deer and squirrels typically leave them alone), crocus, hyacinths, fritilaria, giant alliums, minor bulbs and more. Spring flowering bulbs are planted in the fall, as they need a period of cold temperatures before they will bloom.

So planting in October and November gets them rooted in, and of course, the Ron Wilson winter perigives In the od garden them the cold temperatures. The many different colors and flowering times in today’s bulb world are outstanding; so do anticipate doing a little homework, to plan your assortment of spring colors as well as flowering times to extend

the spring bulb season. With proper planning, you can have spring colors from late winter to late spring. Now, here are a few tips when planting spring bulbs: • When purchasing your bulbs at your favorite local independent garden store, take time to read the labels for planning your color periods. Check your bulbs for firmness, and be sure to pick the larger bulbs, as they’ll typically flower better the first season. • Most bulbs will require at least half day of sun, and generally prefer a welldrained soil. Be sure to use

Pine Soil Conditioner, compost, etc, if needed, to help amend the soil in the planting area. • Plant the larger bulbs (tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, etc.) about 6 to 8 inches deep, pointed side up. Minor bulbs should be planted about 3 to 4 inches deep. And, unless your soil is lose and loamy, forget those hand bulb planters. Use a long-handled bulb planter, solid trowel, bulb drill, or spade for planting spring bulbs. • Be sure to feed your bulbs now with a good grade bulb food, like Espoma’s Bulb Food. Feed now,

and feed again next spring. • And when you’re finished planting, water your bulbs well, and water every seven to 10 days if we have a dry fall. • One last tip about planting bulbs. Plant them in clusters or mass plantings. This gives the garden a nicer, fuller show in the spring. Never, no never, plant your spring bulbs in a row like little toy soldiers! And if rodents are a problem, try using rodent repellents, or try placing chicken wire over the planting areas to help prevent digging.

Lycoris (“Naked Ladies”) sold this time of the year. Go ahead and plant those right away, but for the rest of your bulbs, buy now for the best selection, but wait for October and November for planting. Light up your landscape next spring – plant bulbs!
