Fort Thomas resident Aly Rashid-Hilgefort is hitting the big stage playing the lead role in “Fame - The Musical” at the Aronoff Center. The show, which chronicles the lives of a diverse group of students, is set during the last years of New York City’s celebrated High School for the Performing Arts on 46th Street. Rashid-Hilgefort, a junior at the Cincinnati School for Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA), is playing role of Serena in the school’s production, which is showing at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 6 and Saturday, Nov. 7. “When I was younger I liked to be on stage a perform in school plays,” Rashid-Hilgefort said. “I really loved it and from then on it has really escalated.” Realizing acting was something she wanted to pursue, Rashid-Hilgefort started at SCPA in the eighth grade. Since then, she has performed in various musicals, plays and other productions, but never with a role as big as Serena. “This is a really exciting production for me because this is my

Fort Thomas is among seven Kentucky Main Street communities that were recently honored for outstanding projects and programs. The honor came from the Kentucky Main Street Program, which is administered by the Kentucky Heritage Council and the State Historic Preservation Office. Awards were presented in four categories, designed after the four objectives of the Main Street approach, which includes design, promotion, organization and economic restructuring. The Fort Thomas Renaissance received an award in the promotion/event category for its Junior Renaissance Camp, a summer camp for local children. “It was a tremendous honor for Fort Thomas Renaissance to receive the state award for promotions event for our Junior Renaissance Camp,” said Debbie Buckley, Fort Thomas’s Renaissance Manager. “We thought it was a good program, but it was especially nice to know that others at the state level though it was worthy of the award.” Along with creating the camp, the Fort Thomas Renaissance has been focusing a lot of effort on the city’s Main Street Program, which include the Midway Business District on South Fort Thomas Avenue and the Towne Center Business District on North Fort Thomas and South Fort Thomas Avenue and a small part of Highland Avenue. Currently, Buckley said the city’s main project is the streetscape in the Midway, which includes improved sidewalks and new trees, lighting, benches, planters and garbage receptacles.

Southbank Partners team: Moreland plus Keene By Chris Mayhew

Northern Kentucky’s riverfront economic development group, Southbank Partners, has a new leadership team that packs a legislative punch. Southbank, a nonprofit, was formed in 1997 to coordinate development activity along the Ohio River in the cities of Covington, Newport, Bellevue, Dayton, Ludlow and Fort Thomas. In September Southbank hired Jack Moreland, who has a background as an education leader, as the new president; and Dennis Keene, a state representative of Wilder, as economic adviser. Keene, a Democrat, rep-

resents the 67th District with a territory including Newport, Dayton, Bellevue, Wilder, Southgate, Woodlawn and a portion of Highland Heights. Keene’s status as a legislator has already been a positive for Southbank by helping schedule a talk in Frankfort in October with the joint senate/house subcommittee that focused on economic development in the state. “We wanted to get on their radar screen and that’s a direct impact of Dennis sort of having a dual role,” Moreland said. They were able to talk to the legislators about Southbank’s role in development and also about the Riverfront Commons project. Southbank is working to

push the $50-million Riverfront Commons featuring a multi-use trail proposal along the Keene Ohio River l i n k i n g existing and planned attractions and housing together. Young professionals and others have moved away from the urban areas to the suburbs for years, and now many are changing their minds with the price of gas and other factors about city living, Moreland said. “We want this whole riverfront to be a destination,” he said. “If you live in Indianapolis we want people to say let’s go spend a whole weekend in Northern

Kentucky because there’s lots of attractions and fun things to do here.” DevelopMoreland ment naturally gravitates to the riverfront, but Southbank’s role is to make sure that it’s the right fit for each member city, he said. “The thing about our riverfront, that’s our liquid gold out there,” Moreland said. The Riverfront Commons project needs the support of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Moreland said. The first step, a reconnaissance study of the area, has been performed by the Corps, and the next step, a

feasibility study, is expected to be complete within 12 to 18 months, he said. But, a grant obtained by Keene and Senate President Pro-Tem Katie Stine, RSouthgate, last year will help Southbank move forward with designing a segment of the trail in Newport where the trail is not under the Corps control, Moreland said. Keene will be at Southbank working every day with developers and others when he’s not in Frankfort, Moreland said. Moreland said other entities have their own elected legislators as advocates in the legislature. Eastern Kentucky University has had great success in getting things done in-part because they have

one of their vice-presidents in the legislature, Moreland said. “I think Dennis is valueadded, I don’t see it as a conflict, I see it as something that’s going to be really to our advantage,” Moreland said. Keene said being a legislator isn’t a full-time job, and that he said up front that his goal was to be an asset, not a distraction to Southbank. Knowing more about development in his district, and the riverfront of Covington will only help give him more bullets in his gun as a legislator, Keene said. “It is a part-time job, and we have to have other opportunities to earn a living,” he said.

Highlands to raise money for arts programs By Amanda Joering Alley

Highlands High School is working to make its newly renovated Performing Arts Center a stop for professional arts events in the area. The school recently formed the Bluebird Arts & Education Alliance with the purpose of scheduling performing arts events in the center, which now has state-of-the-art lighting and sound equipment. Chuck Keller, a teacher at Highlands and chair of the committee, said after the renovations were completed to the school’s old auditorium, he saw great potential. “I saw the possibilities with the Performing Arts Center that would allow us to make money for the arts programs at the school,” Keller said. “Our intention is to bring in high-quality entertainment to the area.” This entertainment, which the group hopes will be enjoyed by a variety of community member, will allow the group to raise money for arts programs at the school,

including hiring artists-in-residence to work with students and bringing in guests to teach special classes, Keller said. Keller said the hope is that the group can raise enough donations, about $15,000 to $20,000 this year, then use the money raised by shows performed this year to pay for programs for students and for more shows to come next year, making the program self sufficient. So far, the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra to agreed to use HHS as a part-time home for several performances and Playhouse in the Park has agreed to schedule several plays there, including a performance of “Cyrano” Saturday, Jan. 30. “Both of these contracts are quite a coup for our committee, since they will bring professional level performing arts right into our community,” said Nancy Baker, member of the committee. For information about show schedules and donating to the program, e-mail Chuck Keller at

Senior center starts weekly health kick By Chris Mayhew

Just because it’s Monday will be a good enough reason for some seniors to kick a bad habit or start a healthy routine starting in January with a little encouragement at Campbell County’s senior center. The Campbell County Senior and Wellness Center in Highland Heights is planning a new weekly “Healthy Mondays” program scheduled to start in


Call For






January with the assistance of a class of Northern Kentucky University students. The program will be voluntary. Some ideas already being considered include quitting smoking on Monday, walking a mile on Monday, and cutting sweets on Monday. “Most of us at one point in time have tried to quit something and failed,” said Marsha Dufeck, center director. If a person only does something for one day, they’ve at least taken the first step, and if it doesn’t stick, there’s another chance to start over, she

said. “This way, you’ve got 52 Mondays to start fresh,” Dufeck said. Students from a Physical and Health Education organization and administration class are working on ideas for how the program will be implemented, said Sarah Ritchie, the wellness center coordinator. The students in the class are majoring in fields including fitness and wellness and sports business, Ritchie said. The center’s staff will evaluate the students ideas and see what works at the center, she said.

Some of the program will be about goal-setting, and providing opportunities for getting involved including nutrition education, exercise and socialization, Ritchie said. There will also be tips and ideas given each week, and a healthy cookbook for people to try recipes out at home, she said. Mary Beckerich of Highland Heights said she has walked a mile twice a week on the center’s treadmills for about two years as a way to try and stay healthy. Exercise is social too, because you get to meet other people you might not

For information about the

Healthy Mondays program or other health and exercise opportunities available at the center call Sarah Ritchie at 547-3665.

Bring unwanted bulk items to either the Campbell County Police Department on Constable Drive in Alexandria, Pendery Park off Ky. 8 in Melbourne, or the county’s transportation department off Race Track Road near A.J. Jolly Park. No liquids, including paint or oil, will be accepted at any location. The transportation department will be the only location accepting tires, car batteries,

scrap metal and propane tanks. Also, because of bed bugs, junk mattresses should be wrapped in plastic, and whether unwrapped mattresses will be accepted will be at the personal discretion of work crews the days of the cleanup. There is a limit of a maximum of four to six tires per person. If you have more tires, call 547-1802 prior to the clean-up.

BRIEFLY Clarification

The estimated end of year balance for Campbell County Schools for the fiscal year ending July 31, 2009, was a higher amount than was reported in a Nov. 29 article in The Campbell County Recorder about threats from a state lawmaker to take extra end of year funds from school districts. The end of year fund balance for Campbell County School District was approximately $4.589 million, said

Mark Vogt, director of finance for the district. End of year fund balances are carried over from fiscal year to fiscal year. School districts are required by state law to maintain at least 2 percent contingency fund for emergencies, which would be about $800,000 for the Campbell County School District.

Kevin Muente of Erlanger: Kevin Muente received his bachelor’s of fine arts from the University of WisconsinMilwaukee and his master’s of fine arts from the Universi-

ty of Cincinnati. He currently serves as an Associate Professor of Printing at Northern Kentucky University. Muente’s paintings convey nature at unique and unusual moments. He is inspired by light, surroundings and the environment. Muente plans to use the grant to explore a new artistic direction, training and supplies to build more elaborate sculptural frames.

Fort Thomas Elementary schools honored for service learning projects

By Amanda Joering Alley Fort Thomas’s elementary schools have spent the past year doing what they could to serve the community. The schools’ work was recently honored when all three, Moyer Elementary, Johnson Elementary and Woodfill Elementary earned

the recognition of being a School of Contribution by Children’s Inc. for their work in service learning projects. “We are very pleased to be recognized as a School of Contribution,” said Johnson Principal Jon Stratton. “Our students and staff feel very good about the learning that takes place during our service learning projects and the sense of satisfaction gained from helping

others that are in need.” Last year, Johnson completed a variety of service learning projects, including the Joy of Giving, where students raised money by doing chores in their neighborhood and donated it to help families in the area who needed financial help during the holidays. Other projects benefited Heifer International, a school in Uganda and soldiers in Afghanistan.

Superintendent John Williamson said he is pleased with the recognition the schools received and how the students are learning core content while helping others. “Developing a culture of service is important,” Williamson said. “It’s one of our goals as we take tradition to the next level.”

Most Campbell teams head to playoffs By James Weber

Most of the five football teams in Campbell County still competing this week clinched playoff berths weeks ago. Whenever they got there, it’s time for all five to put those spots to use. Playoff action starts Nov. 6, beginning a trail they hope ends in the state finals Dec. 4-5 at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green. Bellevue, the No. 2 seed in District 3, will host Gallatin County in a Class 1A opener. Gallatin, the No. 3 seed in District 4 (4-6) upset the Tigers last year in the playoffs after Bellevue won in the regular season. Bishop Brossart will travel to Frankfort (7-3). The Mustangs, the fourth seed enjoying their first-ever playoff berth, will play the District 4 champs. The winners of the Bellevue and Brossart games will play each other in Round 2. The better seed will host. In the third round, the remaining two teams from these two districts will play each other, with the better seed hosting. In a tie, the Northern Kentucky district gets the home game. The survivor of the third round travels west for the state semifinals against the District 1/2 regional champion. Mayfield (9-1) and Louisville Holy Cross (5-5) are the district champions there. Newport and Newport Central Catholic are in opposite halves of the regional draw as their District 6 battles District 5 in the first three rounds. NewCath, the District 6 champ, hosts Carroll County (6-4), the No. 4 seed from District 5. With a win, NewCath hosts either Lloyd or Christian AcademyLouisville. Newport, the fourth seed, travels to Louisville to play DeSales (7-3), the District 5 champ. The winner plays either Owen County or Holy Cross. Newport would travel for either opponent. In the third round, the better seed of the two survivors hosts the game. The Northern Kentucky team would travel in a tie. Newport and NewCath would host a state semifinal against the District 7/8 survivor. Corbin (8-2) and Prestonsburg (10-0) were the district champs.

Jesse Orth of Bishop Brossart looks up field and tries to get something happening for his team. Highlands head coach Dale Mueller said. “Instead of sitting three hours on a bus, we will be watching film. We love playing here.” With a win, the Bluebirds would host either Dixie Heights or Ashland Blazer in Round 2. The state semis would feature the Region 4 (Districts 7/8) champ. District champs there were Pulaski County (7-3) and Letcher County Central (8-2).

Carroll County 27, Dayton 19

The Greendevils ended their season with a 1-9 record. They did not qualify for the playoffs. Trailing 20-6 in the second half, Dayton scored two straight touchdowns to trail by a point, 20-19. Patrick Schwierjohann threw for 141 yards for Dayton, 109 of those going to Connor Lewis. The duo connected for two touchdowns.

Bellevue 41, Lloyd 28


Highlands sophomore Patrick Towles evades a tackle from Ryle’s Conner Hempel before scoring a touchdown in the second half of Highlands’ 31-14 win Oct. 30 in Fort Thomas.

On Senior Night at Bellevue, 12th-grader Ricky Buckler continued his assault on the school record books. Buckler broke the school record with 362 rushing yards. He had four of Bellevue’s six touchdowns as the

Tigers improved to 7-3. The four TDs put him on top of the school’s career scoring list. He broke the previous mark of 435 by Mike Sutkamp, ending the game with 442 points. He ended the regular season with 2,269 yards on the ground, and 4,695 for his career. That puts Buckler second on the career list, 268 behind Sutkamp at No. 1. Richard Wills threw TD passes to Alex Hegge and Mike Rankin. The pass to Rankin, from 10 yards, gave Bellevue a 35-21 lead in the fourth quarter. After Lloyd scored to cut the lead to seven, Buckler scored from 59 yards out for the games final score.

Highlands 31, Ryle 14

With Austin Collinsworth in street clothes because of a hand injury, junior Tyler Fennell helped ensure an undefeated regular season. He rushed for 214 yards. Jordan Streeter got Highlands on the board with a 3yard TD run in the first half. Sophomore quarterback threw a 54-yard TD pass to Nick Buten, then Adam Weinel boomed a 47-yard field goal right before halftime to give Highlands a 170 lead. Ryle scored twice in the second half, and Highlands answered. Towles ran for a 27-yard TD to make it 24-7 in the third quarter. Highlands put it away in the fourth. Senior quarterback Will Bardo, unable to throw because of a left elbow injury, took some snaps in the backfield and scored on a oneyard run to make it 31-14.

Cooper 27, Newport 12

The Wildcats enter the 2A playoffs with a 2-8 record after losing to the 6A Jaguars (3-7).


Donald Watson scored for Newport in the second quarter. In the third period, with Cooper leading 7-6, Brandon Carter returned an interception 100 yards for a score to give the Wildcats a 12-7 lead.

Clark County 30, Campbell County 14

The Camels finished their season with a 3-7 record against the 7-3 host team. Michael Kremer was 29of-48 for 226 yards and one touchdown to Nate Geiman. Kremer also rushed for a score. Kremer finished the year with 2,587 yards and 20 TDs. Matt Smith was the leading receiver in Northern Kentucky in yards (744) and second in catches (50). Geiman led NKY in catches (54) and had 574 yards and five TDs.

Bethel-Tate 20, Bishop Brossart 0

Bishop Brossart finished the regular season 5-4, losing the finale to Ohio opponent Bethel-Tate. The Mustangs will play the first state playoff game in program history at Frankfort Friday, Nov. 6.

NewCath 26, Beechwood 22

The Thoroughbreds (5-5) scored all 26 of their points in the second quarter and held off a fourth quarter rally by the Tigers (6-4) to earn the win in the regular season finale. Brady Hightchew rushed for 185 yards and three touchdowns to lead NewCath. Matt Rigdon rushed for 108 yards and passed for 122 yards to lead Beechwood.

After three straight nailbiting wins in the postseason, time ran out on the Newport Central Catholic volleyball team. The sand kept falling longer than many expected as the Thoroughbreds lost to Sacred Heart, 25-10, 258 in the state semifinals Oct. 31 at Northern Kentucky University. NCC finished 21-10 in its fourth straight appearance in the state tourney and second straight in the semifinals. The ’Breds had graduated six seniors including four college players from last year’s team, and often had four sophomores on the floor this season. Minus the heartbreak a close loss would have provided, the Thoroughbreds were mostly upbeat about their journey to the semis. “I thought we did absolutely great,” said one of the sophomores, setter Taylor Snyder. “We went out there thinking we were

going to have fun and have a great time.” NCC head coach Vicki Fleissner said Sacred Heart was more experienced than they were “I have all the intentions of coming back here with the majority of this group. They’ve proved so much this season. Nobody picked us to do well in districts, no one picked us to win regionals or go to the state semifinals. I’m so thrilled for them,” she said. NCC had upset Campbell County in a tight 10th Region final (19-25, 25-20, 25-21), then in the state tournament pulled out close wins over Apollo (33-31, 25-22) and Oldham County

(23-25, 25-23, 25-18). “We pulled through and really fought hard,” Snyder said. “We showed people that we will not give up and we’ll keep fighting.” Snyder and sophomore hitter Liz Gruenschlaeger were named to the all-tour-

nament team. Gruenschlaeger had 27 kills in the two wins. Sophomore Maggie O’Day had 19. Snyder had 67 assists in the two wins. NCC loses three seniors in Ashley Piller, Frannie Schultz and Trisha Taylor.

Trash for Cash

I would like to take the time to thank the Northern Kentucky Solid Waste Department for hosting the Cash for Trash Program. The boys and young men in Troop 75 from Alexandria along with adult volunteers cleaned up five miles of roads in southern Campbell County. It was a beautiful crisp fall day and our group enjoyed themselves. The money earned from the work will go into each boy’s Scout account to be used for Scout related actives, such as camp outing, camping equipment, and summer camp. I would also like to thank David Plummer, Campbell Solid Waste coordinator, for his help and aid in working with my Troop for the Trash for Cash Program. Jim Roessler Scout Master Troop 75, Alexandria

More trash, more cash

As a church we are always looking for different ways to raise money for our Teen Youth Group. The Trash for Cash fundraising idea worked out great because we were able to not only raise money but were able to give back by cleaning up the environment. We assembled a group of 45 volunteers that walked a 10 mile stretch through Wilder, Kentucky. Along the way we picked up roughly 25 bags of litter from the area. Many of our teens have a new outlook on litter and will think twice before just tossing trash out the window. Newport Church of God Souled Out Youth Group Keturah Street Newport

CH@TROOM Last week’s question

What is the scariest movie you’ve seen? The scariest movie villain? What made them so scary?

“I wouldn’t waste my money on today’s ‘scary,’ i.e. blood, violence, gore, sex, etc. but a long, long time ago I loved what I thought was scary was all the Frankenstein movies. What your imagination can dream up is a lot scarier.” Duke “Scariest? ‘The Exorcist’! The reverse spider walk down the steps scene makes me leave the room. At that point, what’s the use for a priest? Al Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ is pretty scary.” T.S. “I would have to say the scariest movie I ever saw was ‘Psycho’ directed by Alfred Hitchcock. It was a 1960 black and white “who done it” thriller. As opposed to today’s blood and guts (make you sick) movies this one really kept you on the edge of your seat. Plus seeing it in the theater added to the suspense. ‘The Exorcist’ was a close second. Most of today’s scary movies are more about special effects and less about acting and directing. Go figure!” T.D.T. “Stephen King’s stories always terrorize me: I am afraid of kids on Big Wheels, corn fields, fog, clowns, proms and Saint Bernards.” K.G.

St. Mary School fourth-grade students from left, Brooke Schneider, Jessica King and Maddy Siry with the “pinch pots” they made with their fingers for art class at the Alexandria school.

Next question:

“I can’t remember the last scariest movie I saw ... maybe ‘Poltergeist’ ... living in today’s society is scarier than I can handle.” Florence “I don’t watch scary movies. The evening news is frightening enough for me.” G.G.

Horses and Hope saves lives

Send your response to with “chatroom” in the subject line.

In a little over one year, it is remarkable just how many people the Horses and Hope program has touched across the Commonwealth. Every year between 2,800 and 3,200 women are diagnosed with breast cancer, making it the second leading cause of death for women in Kentucky. When presented with such a staggering statistic in 2008, I knew something must be done. My drive to help tackle this issue head on led to the development of Horses and Hope: an initiative to educate, improve awareness and offer screenings for the often overlooked members of Kentucky’s horse industry. Since its inception, we have hit the ground running in every corner of the state, mobilizing survivors, doctors and advocates to help us spread the word far and wide about the importance of being screened. Recently we hosted a successful race day at Keeneland, where a sea of pink dresses, scarves, ties and ribbons flooded the grandstands. Conversations between mothers, sisters

“The scariest movie would be ‘Poltergeist’ and the scariest villain would be Freddie Kruger. The suspense made the movie scary and Freddie’s killing methods made him a real baddie.” B.N. “I saw ‘The Birds’ and ‘Psycho’ when I was about 8. Seeing the birds pick at the women’s head is still gross; in ‘Psycho,’ the shower scene. The second would be ‘My Bloody Valentine.’ The laundromat dryer shot said it all to turn the stomach.” S.B.T. “By far – Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘Psycho.’ The suspense held me, I never knew what would happen next. There is a scene where the door flies open and Anthony Perkins comes running out with knife in hand. I was scarred for life. Let’s just say that to this day, when I am in my mom’s cellar, I keep looking around at all the doors down there expecting someone to pop out. (Now she knows why I always run up the stairs).” C.A.S. “Mothra/ Rodan? As a youth it terrified me and I think some others that saw it for the first time as I did in certain parts. “As I became older and saw it again it no longer frightened me at the point in time as the initial viewing.” Frightened Into A Frenzy

and daughters about the importance of telling their friends and neighbors to get screened filled the racetrack. These are the conversations that save lives. The overwhelming amount of support from partners for the Horses and Hope program has been truly outstanding. Due to the hard work of partner groups as well as our committed volunteers and steering committee – The Pink Stable – we will be able to ensure that our next years of operation are even more inclusive as we work together to provide information about the prevention and treatment of breast cancer. The figures to date for Horses and Hope are extraordinary: • Four of Kentucky’s primary racetracks – Ellis Park, Turfway Park, Keeneland and Churchill Downs – have been the site of multiple Breast Cancer Race Day celebrations. • More than 760 track workers were educated about the importance of testing for breast cancer. • Six screening dates using


mobile mammogram technologies at Kentucky’s racetracks led to the further testing and diagnosis of breast cancer in two individuals. • 1,790 Race Day survivors and guests were in attendance at Horses and Hope events, including 135 at the 2009 Kentucky Oaks “Pink Out” Day. • More than 125,246 Race Day fans have learned more about the importance of being tested as well as about the prevalence of breast cancer in the commonwealth. • To date, approximately $96,361 has been raised to help continue this important, life-saving program.

Serving jury duty in Campbell Co. I recently received a telephone inquiry on jury service and our office receives calls on this issue throughout the year. Some people ask why they never get called for jury duty while other people ask why they seem to always get called for jury duty. In this article I will explain how jurors are selected and what qualifications they must have. Jurors are selected randomly from a master list of all persons in the county over 18 years of age who file individual tax returns, have a valid driver’s license and/or who are registered voters in the county. In the past, the juror list consisted of registered voters and property owners. It was suspected that some individuals who were not property owners did not register to vote so that they did not have to serve on jury duty. Therefore, several years ago, the list of jurors was changed to include those listed above. As mentioned above, jurors are selected randomly and can be called once every two years. A juror must be a citizen of the United States, a resident of Campbell County, able to speak and understand the English language and not be a convicted felon or under felony indictment. Once you are called to jury duty, you are required to serve. If a juror fails to fill out and mail in the juror qualification

form or fails to appear for jury duty, he or she may be punished by the court for contempt which could include fines and/or jail time. A judge may excuse a juror from duty upon a showing of undue hardship, extreme inconvenience or public necessity. Examples of such would be a juror who is due to deliver a child, a severely physically handicapped individual or a state or federal legislator who needs to be in Frankfort or in Washington while the legislature is in session. Generally courts will allow a postponement of jury duty from one month to another if there is a good reason for such. An example of a good reason would be a selfemployed individual who is extremely busy and does most of his work in the summer months could have his jury duty postponed to one of the winter months. An employer is not allowed to fire, threaten or coerce an employee who takes off work for jury duty. If an employer discharges an employee in connection with jury duty, the employer may be sued for lost wages, reinstatement and attorney fees. It is discretionary with employers whether to pay employees their normal wages when the employees are on jury duty. In addition to jury duty in a District or Circuit Court in Campbell County, a

Newport couple shares love for running, each other

By Amanda Joering Alley


Joe Bergman, manager of Southern States Campbell Service in Alexandria, steps out of a delivery truck in front of the store.

Southern States’ store still a local connection Despite Southern States’ loss of status as a locally operated business in 2008, little has changed in the way of customer service and operations. Southern States Campbell Cooperative, became Southern States Campbell Service in January 2008. Essentially the store became a branch of a bigger cooperative, said Joe Bergman, manager of the Alexandria store for 23 years. “For 99 percent of the customers, they couldn’t tell a difference,” Bergman said of being bought out. The agri-business started in Newport and moved to Alexandria in the late 1940s. “Feed and seed has always been a big thing, and it’s gone from all agricultural stuff to a lot of homes and gardens,” he said. Today’s Southern States also sells fertilizer and mulch, horse and cattle feed, and delivery service. There is a garden center geared for homeowners,

Location and hours Southern States is located at Jefferson and Main streets in Alexandria. Hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday; 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday; and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. For information call 635-2104. fencing, a small lawn mower and engine repair shop, and a sales area for lawn and tilling equipment and seasonal items including insulated coveralls. Each employee has a special knowledge area like cattle, horses, and gardening. And everyone learns and uses the names of customers, Bergman said. The Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving will be customer appreciation days with sale prices and free country ham sandwiches, he said. “I try to make it a downhome place where people always feel like they’re welcome, a friendly place,” Bergman said.

Covington’s BehringerCrawford Museum presents “The Gourmet Strip: Dining, Entertainment & Gambling” exhibit, which will be on display until Jan. 10. The exhibit

When Emily Bello met Todd, now her husband, she didn’t realize the meeting would change her life. Besides meeting the man she would later decide to spend the rest of her life with, it also led to her love for running. “I met Todd, my now husband, in 2004 and he had been an avid marathon runner for a few years,” Emily said. “When I went to Disney World to watch him run his eighth marathon, I decided that I, too, wanted to run a marathon.” Todd said he began running marathons after college as a way to stay in shape and hasn’t stopped since. “In 97’ I ran my first marathon, and I pretty much fell in love with running,” Todd said. Since the Disney World Marathon, Todd has shared that love with Emily, coaching and training her to run marathons. Though she had never run more than four miles before meeting Todd, Emily finished her first marathon in October 2005 in four hours and 29 minutes. “Over the course of five marathons to come, Todd ran by my side and coached me to cutting one hour off my time and qualifying for the Boston Marathon,” Emily said. “We ran Boston in April, and I set my personal record of three hours and 26 minutes.” While Emily’s time qualified her for the Boston Marathon, Todd has to achieve a faster time to qualify, Emily said. So during training, he ran 20 miles with her, at her pace, every Saturday, then got up before church on Sunday to run another 20


Todd and Emily Bello. miles at his pace. “He has sacrificed so much for me,” Emily said. “I tell people that I am not sure we would have fallen in love if it had not been for our running and it has kept us so strong over the years.” Todd said running together gave them a lot of time to get to know each

other in the beginning of their relationship. “We both love running and it’s just given us the opportunity to spend time together doing something we love,” Todd said. The couple recently completed their first ultra marathon of 50 miles in Nashville, with Emily placing as the female winner.

“Of course, Todd was by my side the entire time,” Emily said. “We were holding hands as we crossed the finish line.” After they competed in their first half Ironman in August, the couple is scheduled to participate in the full Louisville 2010 Ironman next August.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati needs adult volunteers to mentor at-risk children in many areas of the Tristate, but has a particular need right now at Fourth Street Elementary in Newport. Debbie Mollette coordinates the School-Based mentoring program for the agency and said finding volunteers for 3 p.m. is presenting a challenge. “It’s much easier for many people to volunteer during their lunch hour,” she said. “Coming in after school can be tougher, but this would be great for someone who works a different shift, is retired, or is lucky enough to have a flexible schedule.” Nearly a dozen children currently are matched as “Little Brothers” and “Little Sisters” in the school, but Mollette says they could use at least a dozen more adults to spend time with other students there. She used to work in the school as a mentoring coordinator and said, “My heart

People might not understand the difference an hour can make. “Just reading with a child, playing a game, talking and listening, that’s what our ‘Bigs’ do, and we’ve seen it change lives,” she said. Carla Twomey is one of

the newest volunteers at Fourth Street. She and her Little Brother Corey are still getting to know each other. They’ve been playing games, reading and just talking. A former teacher, Twomey knows how important it is for children to see adults willing to help them. “If the people who can reach out choose not to, the world is in big trouble. A day, an hour, a child at a time, we can make a differ-

ence,” she said. That’s why she makes the 20 minute drive from her Anderson home each Monday afternoon and why she recruited a friend to join her as a Big Brother to another child.

The fact that longing constantly nips at our heels proves it’s not optional. It’s crucial for general health. process. The denial of this quest for the transcendent debilitates and impoverishes our life.” Got that? This doctor of psychology at a prestigious university is telling us it’s quite normal to realize you long for God. You’re not neurotic or senile for doing so, you’re not weird; in fact

you’re being true to your nature. It makes your life worse by not doing so. Spirituality is not optional. Certainly we need material possessions to live, and enjoyment to thrive, but we need a spiritual dimension to live fully. It enables us to find purpose and meaning and connects us our source and destiny. It fills out our picture. The fact that longing constantly nips at our heels proves it’s not optional. It’s crucial for general health. “Among all my patients in the second half of life,

that is to say over 35, there has not been one whose problem in the last resort was not that of finding a religious outlook on life,” wrote Carl Jung. Our consumer society tries to contradict that Jungian idea. It says our longing is exclusively for this world and this world can completely satisfy. Ridiculous! A society that tells its people they should live a certain way, if that way is fundamentally in opposition to what people are by nature, produces what Nietzsche termed the

“sick animal.” There is a longing down deep where the sparks of our humanity smolder. Though we enjoy this wonderful world, our longing wants to call us ever onward and up where we belong.

Chilly weather outside means chili inside Plus, Rita’s grandson ‘fishes’ for birthday dinner

I had to laugh when grandson Jack requested tilapia from Keegan’s Seafood for his fourth birthday’s dinner. It’s a small shop in Mount Washington owned by Tom Keegan. K e e Rita gan’s a Heikenfeld w a l k i n g encyclopeRita’s kitchen dia for seafood and loves showing the kids all the different varieties to make them more aware about eating healthy. The reason I laughed is when we were growing up, the only seafood we ate was frozen whiting, fried, and fresh bass caught by my Mom and brother, Charlie. I didn’t even know what

tilapia was until I was in my 30s. We need to support independent folks like Tom. So if you have a favorite independent deli/grocer, etc. let me know and I’ll feature them and a signature recipe in an upcoming column. I want to hear from readers across the board: north, south, east and west!

Herb crusted halibut

Any nice white fish will do. When I teach seafood classes, this is a student favorite. Four servings halibut, skinless, 6 to 8 oz. each 1 ⁄2 cup approx. Dijon mustard Salt and pepper 1 ⁄2 cup basil, finely chopped 1 ⁄4 cup each: cilantro, mint, parsley, chives and dill, finely chopped Butter Pat fish dry. Season both sides of fish with salt and pepper and lightly brush both sides with mustard. Combine herbs and place in shallow dish. Press both sides of fish into herb mix-

ture, coating evenly. In a nonstick pan, melt about 2 tablespoons butter and turn heat to medium. Add fish. Cook several minutes on each side, until done. Tips from Rita’s kitchen: Don’t overcook fish. When it flakes easily, it’s done. Seafood 101: Watch my cable TV show with Tom on Union Township TV (Warner 8 and 15) to learn all you need to know about seafood.

Melissa’s Schaiper’s easy chicken chili

There’s a good amount of interest in the chicken chili Good Samaritan serves in their cafeteria. Friend, great cook and Good Sam’s cath lab queen (my given title) Kay Hitzler found out it’s a purchased product.

Kay’s group in the catheter lab held a tailgating lunch and Melissa Schaiper, a colleague of Kay’s, brought a crockpot chicken chili that was a huge hit. Kay said Melissa’s chili is a bit spicier than Good Sam’s. So I would say use a mild salsa. and at

Rita’s lower fat Fiddle Faddle clone

I developed this for the book “Sports Nutrition for Idiots.” Flaxseed is optional and the store-bought version doesn’t contain this. 4 cups popped corn 1 tablespoon flaxseed 1 cup caramel ice cream topping, heated in microwave

Spray crockpot. Add:

1 pound chicken breast 4 cups canned Great Northern beans 12 oz. salsa 1 teaspoon each: cumin and garlic Cook six hours on low. An hour before serving, stir in 4 ounces of pepper jack cheese. Serve with 4 more ounces of cheese. Tips from Rita’s kitchen: If you want, stir in more cumin and garlic after six hours. More chili recipes: In my online column at www.

Mix popcorn and flax. Pour topping over, stirring to coat as well as you can. Pour onto sprayed cookie sheet. Bake in preheated 250degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Makes 4 cups.

Rooting out recipes

Fern’s chili. For Pam Timme. “It was in the Enquirer long ago and I’ve lost it.” I’m wondering if it’s Fern Storer’s recipe. She was the Post food editor for years and a wonderful cook. Red Lobster’s sun-

dried tomato salad dressing. For Dwight. He had no luck calling the company. (They don’t serve it anymore). He also went online, researched recipe books, etc. Mio’s creamy garlic dressing. Spoke with Chris Forbes, owner of the Milford Mio’s. “Can’t divulge it. There’s garlic, sour cream, milk, pepper and sugar in it.” When I asked if there was any vinegar, lemon juice, etc., he said no. If anyone has a creamy garlic recipe similar, please share. Bravo’s strawberry lasagna for Betty Hawley. I’m giving up on this Augusta, Ky., restaurant’s dessert. I’ve made several calls to the owner, who at first thought she might share, but she hasn’t returned my calls. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is Macy’s certified culinary professional and family herbalist, an educator and author. E-mail her at with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line. Or call 513-2487130, ext. 356.

Potted bulbs can ‘light up’ your spring anywhere • A good grade potting mix • Espom a ’ s Bulbtone (a fertilizer) • T h e Ron Wilson bulbs of your In the choice. Any garden of the spring flowering bulbs will work, so look at doing some pots of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths for great fragrances, and a few minor bulbs, like crocus, for early colors. Take your pots and place

You can “light up” your yard next spring by planting spring bulbs in the ground now. But guess what? You can do the same thing to light up your outdoor containers next spring, or to bring spring bulb colors inside your home. Instead of planting bulbs in the ground, simply plant them in a pot. Growing spring bulbs in a container is easy. Here’s what you’ll need for your potted spring bulbs: • 4-, 6-, 8-inch or larger pots, with good drainage holes in the bottom

about an inch or two of the potting mix in the bottom. Then, evenly distribute your bulbs in the mix, point up, and feel free to plant them a little closer than you would normally in the ground. For the tulips, place the flat side of the bulb to the outside of the pot. Cover your bulbs with more of your soil-less mix, sprinkle on a little bulb food, and then continue to fill the pot to the top, lightly compressing the soil as you fill. Water your potted bulbs thoroughly, and you’re ready to grow.

or place your potted bulbs in an outdoor planter, give them a light water soluble feeding, water as needed, and let them do their “spring thing.” When they’re totally finished blooming and growing, you can take them out of the pot, plant them in the garden, and enjoy them for years to come.

You can “light up” your yard next spring by planting spring bulbs in the ground now. But guess what? You can bring spring bulb colors inside your home. into the ground, and cover with mulch or leaves for the winter. Check to make sure they have soil moisture when you move them, and water lightly over the winter as the soil dries. Otherwise, just let them sit dormant enjoying the cold temperatures. Early next spring, when the bulbs start to grow, bring them in to the house,

Now, here’s the secret: You must over winter your potted bulbs in cold temperatures. So, leave your pots sitting outside, watering them when the soil dries out. Once the temperatures outside have become cold, consistently, move the planted bulb pots inside an unheated garage or shed, put them down in a window well, or actually heel them

As many as 1,400 new jobs will soon be coming to Fort Knox – and a team of experts from Fort Knox are visiting Northern Kentucky University to conduct onehour information sessions to let NKU students and others know about these opportunities. The sessions, to be held in the University Center Otto Budig Theater, will be at 12:15 p.m., 3:30 p.m., 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Nov. 10. “Army representatives want to make sure NKU students understand that for applicants with college degrees, their degree can qualify them for many of these jobs,” said Sherry Johnson, Lincoln Trail Area Development District associate director for employment and training. “What’s going on at Fort Knox is the equivalent of having a Fortune 500 company move their headquarters to Kentucky.” It is anticipated that there will be as many as 1,400 openings for civilian workers, out of a total of more than 5,000 total civilian jobs on Fort Knox. Most of these job openings will be in human resource management, information technology and administrative fields. But there will also be openings in a wide variety of other

The Campbell County Office of Emergency Management reminds citizens that disasters happen anytime and anywhere. When disaster strikes, you may not have much time to respond. A highway spill or hazardous material could mean evacuation. A winter storm could confine your family at home. An earthquake, flood, tornado or any other disaster could cut water, electricity and telephones for days. After a disaster, local officials and relief workers will be on the scene, but they cannot reach everyone immediately. You could get help in hours, or it may take days. Would your family be prepared to cope with the emergency until help arrives? Your family will cope best by preparing for disaster before it strikes. One way to prepare is by assembling a Disaster Supplies Kit. Once disaster hits, you won't have time to shop or search for supplies. But if you've gathered supplies in advance, your family can endure an evacuation or home confinement.

Funds boost kindergarten readiness United Way of Greater Cincinnati is distributing $282,469 to help boost kindergarten readiness and improve early childhood education in Northern Kentucky. The money is part of a series of grants resulting from the Winning Beginnings campaign, which aims to ensure every local child has access to high quality early education programs and increase the number of children prepared for success in kindergarten. The Northern Kentucky Winning Beginnings grants, which were recommended by the Northern Kentucky Action Council, will support Success By 6 efforts in Covington, Newport, Boone County and Grant County. In Covington, the Student Success Network will receive a $95,781 investment to provide literacy coaches to programs, provide training to parents as well as support data input and management that helps assess the impact of existing educational strategies. Newport's Student Success Network will receive a $77,333 investment for athome visitation for children between 3 and 5 years old, full-day preschool programming, pre-school summer programming and resources that help assess the impact of existing educational strategies.

four areas. • In Boone County, 90 percent of children participating in HIPPY were assessed to be on track in literacy, early math, oral and receptive language testing. • In Covington, children who attended a Covington Independent Public School Preschool scored higher on assessments than children who did not attend a CIPS Preschool, thanks in part to the impact made by literacy coaches. • In Grant County, development workshops and onsite support visits supported child care center staff in Grant County and Williamstown. • In Newport, data shows 86 percent of children who participated in two years of high quality early learning experiences through partner programs entered kindergarten “prepared.” “Winning Beginnings supports innovative early childhood strategies in Northern Kentucky,” says Amy Neal, director, Success By 6, Northern Kentucky. “We are very pleased with the data that has been gathered over this past year. It's this data that helps guide our future work. We know that these early investments are key to making sure that all children in children enter school on the right path to school success.” Trained professionals

Winning Beginnings is designating $80,150 for Boone County, supporting the continuation and expansion of the Home Instruction of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) program, the purchase of early care and education screening tools and provide professional development and training materials for providers administering such assessments. Grant County will receive $29,205 for coaching to early care and education directors, as well as providing access to data input and management that helps assess the impact of Northern Kentucky educational strategies. “These investments, thanks to contributions from local companies, foundations and individuals, help support United Way's commitment of ensuring high quality early childhood care and education for families in our region,” says Leshia Lyman, director, United Way of Greater Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky. “We want to make sure all children in Northern Kentucky have access to the essential building blocks for a better life, and Winning Beginnings is helping make that happen.” Previous investments by the Winning Beginnings campaign are leading to results in Northern Kentucky. Preliminary data shows improvement in all

working directly with children in Northern Kentucky say they are seeing the results of the Winning Beginnings investments first hand. “We know that success in school starts with reading and so our Student Success Network aligned its goals with the district literacy goals,” says Rebecca Zmurk, Covington preschool literacy coach. “We know that children, who become good readers in the early grades, are more likely to become better learners throughout their school years. It was astonishing to see the huge gains in our preschool program from the Phonological Awareness Literacy Screen data. Being able to work individually with ‘at risk’ students proved to be successful. At the end of the year, over ninety percent of our preschoolers benchmarked in Alphabet Knowledge, providing a firm foundation for kindergarten success.” The Winning Beginnings campaign runs separately from the annual United Way fundraising campaign; it was initiated with a “silent” phase in 2007, bringing in more than $6 million. The goal is to raise up to $30 million over five years from private sources. The private sector goal is coupled with a long-term public policy goal to attract more state resources for improving high quality childhood education. Winning Beginnings will ultimately support three efforts, including quality early childhood education, home visitation to help parents improve their parenting skills and a system that monitors the effectiveness of these practices as they work to prepare children for the classroom.

There is a joke among friends here, “It’s a Phoenix that has risen from the ashes. ”When Charles and Allison Hahn Sobieck purchased the property at 502 North Main Street (in Somerset, Kentucky), there was a lot of work to be done, to say the least. With the vision of a B & B and a home in ruins, there were little choices. The dilapidated structure was removed, then reconstructed as it had been in the 1850’s. It’s a brand new home. A bit of an unusual concept for a bed and breakfast. “We reconstructed the home from scratch. This gave us the benefit of designing every amenity possible along the way, ”said Allison Sobieck, owner. Every room is equipped with many amenities you don’t often find in a traditional bed and breakfast, but rather a fine hotel. Every room has a full sized closet with a pair of micro-fiber robes hanging in them, 400- count Egyptian cotton sheets, cable TV with DVD players, queen sized beds, and a host of other things. For instance, 2 rooms have gas fireplaces and 3 rooms have whirlpool tubs. We even offer many add on amenities such as massage, dinner, flowers, etc…

The rooms are only half of the reason to come to The Doolin House. Owners Charles and Allison just happen to both be chefs. Some of the breakfast specialties include Caramel Banana French Toast and Southern Eggs Benedict (2 fried green tomatoes topped with 2 slices of smoked bacon, 2 eggs over easy and Hollandaise). Chuck is usually in charge of breakfast and tries to do new and different things every day. Chef Chuck pointed out, “It’s fun to experiment with breakfast. It’s the one meal that encompasses all foods. It’s perfectly acceptable to see smoked salmon or a pork cutlet at the breakfast table. ”For those in no rush to rise and shine, breakfast in bed is served at no additional charge. When you need a weekend get away that’s not too far from home or you are planning your summer vacation to beautiful Lake Cumberland, remember that The Doolin House Bed and Breakfast is only a phone call away.
