Three charged in Ft. Thomas jogging attacks By Chris Mayhew

FORT THOMAS — Police here have charged three juveniles in connection with three assaults, including two on joggers. Fort Thomas Police are investigating reports of an assault and a cell phone taken on Nov. 1 and assaults on two joggers and another cell phone taken the afternoon of Sunday, Nov. 3. Police arrested three male juveniles – one each from from Park Hills, Covington and Fort Mitchell – in connection with the Nov. 1 robbery and two reported assaults on joggers in Fort Thomas on Nov. 3, according to the news release. Police charged one juvenile with one count of second degree robbery, two counts of fourth degree assault and one count of attempted fourth degree assault, according to the release. The other two juveniles were arrested on two counts of fourth degree assault and one count of fourth degree attempted assault. A news release from the Fort Thomas Police Department about the arrests included a Nov. 1 robbery and assault of a 13-year-old juvenile in the 200 block of North Fort Thomas Avenue. Fort Thomas Lt.

Students hear about Medal of Honor recipient

By Chris Mayhew

FORT THOMAS — Students were the first to see displays and lessons from volunteers and re-enactors as part of Salute to Veterans Nov. 8. Fort Thomas students learned about the roles of soldiers, militia and women in the Revolutionary War from Donald and Esther Drewry of Wild-

er. Donald, a retired minister, wore a replica Continental Army captain’s uniform – the first national army of the original 13 colonies. Esther, a retired Internal Revenue Service worker, said she wore an atypical pieced-together uniform of a militia member fighting for the 13 colonies’ independence from England. Deanna Beineke of Fort Thomas said she was volunteer-

ing to tell students about the three Medal of Honor recipients who either lived in or had connections to Fort Thomas. Beineke, a retired teacher, said she became interested in learning the history of all three Fort Thomas medal recipients after hearing about Lt. Col. Don Carlos Faith Jr. for the first time a few years ago. Beineke said See MEDAL, Page A2

Rich Whitford said the13-yearold was beaten up by juveniles after leaving a football game and his cell phone was taken. The Sunday, Nov. 3, assaults all happened between 4:15-5:13 p.m., according to police reports. The random nature of the assaults is uncommon, said Fort Thomas Police Chief Mike Daly The reports are all believed to be connected because witness descriptions of the attackers all matched – three male teens described as between the ages of16-18, he said. “This kind of assault is unacceptable,” said Daly earlier this month. “And our police department, the guys were out there looking for this thing in a strong way yesterday after it happened. And this is not something that is acceptable for this community. And we’re not going to put up with as a police department or city.” Fort Thomas Police received a report of a 14-year-old boy being punched in the face at about 4:20 p.m. while jogging south with his father along South Fort Thomas Avenue at Grand Avenue. The teen waited until reaching home to report the incident at 5:13 p.m., said Fort Thomas officer Derek Faught. See ATTACKS, Page A2

Landing offers teen a chance at recovery

By Amy Scalf

ALEXANDRIA — Addictions to drugs and alcohol aren’t restricted to adults over 21. To help teens battle addiction, Shari Hennekes is giving them their own place to find recovery. Hennekes, 52, has spent more than half her life sober after years of hard drinking. She is starting a teen 12-step recovery program meeting, called The Landing, at 7 p.m. Mondays at the Calvin A. Harris Recreation Center, 8236 W. Main St., starting Nov. 18. “Alcohol is a huge problem for teens. You can look at the crime statistics and heroin is-

sues throughout Northern Kentucky. Kids don’t just wake up one day and say, ‘I’m going to do heroin today,’” she said. “They start with other drugs and alcohol. Kids are inundated now, with so much negativity. These things aren’t new, but with the accessibility and the tools we have today, we’re hard-pressed to find a positive message.” More information about The Landing can be found at thelanding. She said this program is the only one of its kind in Northern Kentucky, and the only other Landing program in the state is in Winchester. “I’d love to be able to provide programs seven days a week

and have other communities embrace this program,” she said. Hennekes also said she feels called to deliver this particular message because of her own past. She said her father was an alcoholic, and even though she was drinking daily, she didn’t think she had a problem until after she was arrested twice for driving under the influence. “I had two DUIs and my lawyer said it was in my best interest to go to rehab. I went, not to figure out what was wrong with me, but to find out what was wrong with my family. It turned out I’m just a chip off the old

Faith was killed while leading a charge after being encircled in North Korea at the Battle of Chosin Reservoir on Dec. 1, 1950. Faith’s body was not found until a box of remains was recovered from a mass burial site in 2004. The remains were positively identified until 2012, according to a USA Today article. The other Fort Thomas Medal of Honor recipients are Thomas M. Doherty and Samuel Woodfill, namesake of Woodfill Elementary School. Doherty received the medal for risking his life to save the lives of wounded soldiers in a battle in Santiago, Cuba, July 1, 1898. Woodfill, as a member of the U.S. Army’s 60th Infantry, earned his medal

God has given me the tools to deal with life without a destructive way of doing it.” “I have no problem saying Jesus is the answer. It’s time to take a stand and draw a line in the sand,” said Hennekes. Although the program is based on Christian principles, Hennekes said she

wanted to host the meetings in a neutral place. “Some people don’t want to come to church, or maybe the church is one denomination and they’re another,” she said. “I wanted to have it in a place that was religionneutral but central for the community.” The program is free for participants, she said, thanks to sponsors Chuck and Judy Heilman, Reis Concrete and Campbell County Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 10.

Deciding to sponsor the program was an easy one for George Schreiner of the Fraternal Order of Police. “That was a no-brainer. It’s for the kids,” he said. “Kids need to know there’s a healthier alternative to their problems,” said Hennkes. “Sometimes adults have their own situations, and they’re not getting help at home.”

than $47,000 when compared with the same dates in 2011, according to the report. Partially responsible for the increase in revenues and number of golf rounds played were the July “Buck a Hole Wednesday” promotion and a two-for-one greens fee special on Friday nights, that the course is continuing to offer, Elberfeld said. “Buck a Hole Wednesday” promotion provided a golf cart rental and 18 holes of golf, Elberfeld said. “Even though it was at a reduced rate, because we had so many rounds we generated an additional almost $5,000,” he said. “We were booked pretty well solid every Wednesday in July.” The Friday night twofor-one special asked people who golf to bring a friend who doesn’t regularly golf to try the game out, Elberfeld said. “We figured they don’t want to pay full price for their first time out,” he said. Elberfeld said the county finished paving

Campbell County recorded an increase number of golf rounds played and revenues generated at A.J. Jolly Golf Course when comparing May 1-Sept. 30, 2013, to the same dates in 2011. The county did not compare 2012 statistics because the course was closed early for the season Aug. 13 because of damage to all 18 greens.

Since this fiscal year does not end until June 30, there is no way to tell how much the revenue increase from this summer will impact the amount the county might pay from the general fund to cover all operational costs, he said.

Difference in Diamonds

Campbell County has paid $1.242 million more to operate A.J. Jolly Golf Course since 2006 than was generated by revenues from rounds of golf players, concessions and cart rentals. The following is the amount of support paid by the county to operate the course per fiscal year (July 1-June30): » 2012-13: $466,000 » 2011-12: $155,000 » 2010-11: $226,000 » 2009-10: $70,000 » 2008-09: $120,000 » 2007-08: $60,000 » 2006-07: $50,000 » 2005-06: $95,000

first goal is to do better financially than if the course was closed. Debt service and expenses related to keeping the ground will continue if the county goes out of the golf business, he said. “The next thing is to actually make money beyond all of the expenses, and that’s harder the way things are right now because our peak year was 47,000 rounds of golf and nobody is getting that anymore,” he said. A.J Jolly was the only course in southern Camp-

Campbell County is taking a divot in it’s budget at A.J. Jolly Golf Course, but the course has started using discounts and special promotions to repair the divots. The county-run 18-hole course, south of AlHorine exandria on Race Track Road, has cost the county $1.242 million in the past eight years, with the biggest loss of $466,000 coming in the 2012-13 fiscal year. The county began a new fiscal year July 1, and budgeted $190,000 in course support. Golfers returned this year after the course was closed from Aug. 13, 2012, to this April 27 after all 18 greens were damaged and had to be rebuilt. The greens were damaged when a chemical used to treat the park’s lake was instead accidentally used as a treatment for the greens, according to a Sept. 8, 2012, article in The Campbell County Recorder. The county paid $466,00 from the general fund to rebuild the greens and cover operational costs since July 1, 2012. Campbell County Judge-executive Steve Pendery said the county’s

The county doesn’t expect to make money off the course right away, but it remains a goal, Pendrey said. “We’re doing much better than we did in the last few years this year, and certainly better than last year when we were out of business for a while with the greens shut down,” he said. More people are playing golf there this year for the first time since 2011, said Campbell County Administrator Robert Horine. This year, all group golf outings impacted by the early closure of the course in 2012 brought their group events back, Horine said. “It has been a very successful year,” he said. Since reopening at the end of April, the course has hostred 524 more rounds of golf played through the end of September when compared with the same period in 2011, said Matt Elberfeld, finance director for the county.

Lampe running for fiscal court Republican Tom Lampe, a six-term member of Fort Thomas City Council, will seek a seat on the Campbell County Fiscal Court in 2014. Lampe is seeking the Campbell County Commissioner seat currently held by Democrat Ken Lampe Rechtin. Lampe said his business background and his six terms on city council in Fort Thomas has given him the background, experience and qualifications to effectively serve the people of his native Campbell County. “I believe that it is important to start at the beginning and learn about government before you move to the next steps,”

Lampe said. “I have learned the craft, gained worthwhile experience, and now have something to offer to all of Campbell County.” Lampe said his accomplishments and involvement on Fort Thomas City Council include: » As a long-time member of the Finance Committee overseeing the city’s $10 million budget and helping keep the city on solid financial ground with no reduction in services through the recent economic downturn. » As chairman of the Recreation Committee oversaw a $5 million improvement of the city’s parks, including new shelters and restrooms in Tower Park and Highland Hills Park and a complete rebuilding of Rossford Park. Lampe was raised in Fort Thomas and gradu-

ated from St. Xavier High School and Xavier University, where he received a marketing degree. Lampe was first elected to Fort Thomas City Council in 2002 and has been re-elected five times. He has chaired Park and Recreations and Safety Committees and has also served on the Finance and Public Works committees. Lampe has served as a member of the St. Catherine of Siena Board of Education; a lector at St. Catherine of Siena Parish; a member of the Lions Club of Fort Thomas. He currently serves on the St. Elizabeth Healthcare Foundation Board as a member of the Business Support Committee. Lampe and his wife, Kim, have three children; Tyler, 21, and twins Will and John, 17.

Wilder lobbying for better I-275/AA exit fix By Chris Mayhew

WILDER — City Administrator Terry Vance is raising concerns the rebuilding of the interchange of Interstate 275 with the AA Highway has created new traffic problems. Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s District 6 completed a rebuild of the ramps at I-275 at the AA Highway/Ky. 9 in Wilder in 2012. Ky. 9 parallels the Licking River north from Newport and Wilder, and becomes known as the AA Highway south of the I-275 intersection. Changes to the interchange added a continuous lane where drivers traveling east on I-275 and exiting onto AA south do not have to stop or merge with AA traffic. Previously, stopped vehicles sometimes backed up onto eastbound I-275 as drivers waited to use the off-ramp to the AA, Vance said. Vance is concerned drivers traveling south on Ky. 9 to the AA Highway

are now being merged from two lanes to one lane because of the new continuous exit ramp lane from I-275 east. The new design is now causing a backup on Ky. 9 during morning and afternoon rush hour because traffic has to merge into one lane, he said. “It’s a new design, but I don’t think it made it a lot better,” he said of the interchange work. Vance said creating two dedicated turn lanes from eastbound I-275 to the AA Highway will ease


The source for Monogrammed Jewelry since 1974

traffic issues on Ky. 9. The two-turn lane system is how the eastbound I-275 exit to Ky.16 in Taylor Mill is designed, he said. He said the redesign of the interchange did improve the safety for people turning left onto I-275 from the AA and Ky. 9. “What we’ve done is we’ve traded the T-bone accidents when people are turning left, which are serious accidents, with rear-end accidents,” he said. Vance said having flashing yellow turn lights instead of a red or green turn light will allow more traffic to turn onto I-275 on-ramps and ease traffic. There is not much room in the turn lanes on the AA and Ky. 9 onto I-275 now, and that also causes backups at rush hour, he said.

Second book details gluten-free recipes Delhi Township author cooks for Cincinnati archbishop By Kamellia Soenjoto Smith

Do you eat gluten-free meals? “It turns out it’s a really healthy way of living,” says Delhi Township Giovanna Delli Carpini Trimpe, author of the recipe book “Holy Chow Gluten Free.” What’s the key? “Fresh products,” she explains, not processed. “And there are a lot of products that say gluten-free already.” Trimpe’s new book showcases a collection of her gluten-free recipes, as well as a few from family and friends. “This is regular, everyday food,” she points out. The chef for the St. Peter in Chains Cathedral downtown Cincinnati began working on the recipes nearly five years ago when she was asked to cook for Cincinnati Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr. “They gave me this folder, like four or five pages, of what he could have and couldn’t have,” she recalls. “And I was stressed out.” She started reading and learned about the allergy the archbishop suf-

She revamped her recipes, then surprised him. “One night I made spaghetti and meatballs,” she says. “He looked at me and said, ‘I can’t have that.’ I said, ‘Yes you can.’” How did she do it? “There’s really good gluten-free pasta out there,” she explains. “I got gluten-free bread and turned it into breadcrumbs, and then used it in the meatballs. “He couldn’t believe that he was eating the entire plate.” Schnurr repaid her with a testimonial in her book. “Giovanna has served our guests with delicious meals while at the same time being ‘safe’ for me,”

he wrote. Trimpe was born in Venezuela to Italian parents. When she was 8 years old her mother took her back to Italy so she would know her ancestors. They lived with her grandmother for three years in a small town, Gallo Matese. “It was so rustic,” she says, describing her grandmother’s home. And there was something missing. “I asked, ‘Where’s the stove?’ She said, ‘We don’t have one.’ “They had a woodburning oven,” she explains, made of brick and built into the wall. Cooking was an all-day chore. “By the time you finished breakfast, it was time for lunch, and then dinner.” CE-0000574934

Jeremy Ison recently talked with Thomas More College President David Armstrong about his transfer to the college this semester. He earned an associate degree in information technology from Gateway Community College, and now studies accounting at TMC. “With the help of the advisers, the transfer to Thomas More couldn’t have been easier. I was happy that all of my credits transferred. Getting involved with school never felt so welcoming,” said Ison. A program called Four is More allows students who have completed an associate’s degree at Gateway to be automatically accepted to Thomas More upon submission of the admission application These transfer students are also eligible for an enhanced financial aid package designed to bridge the gap to the four-year degree program. “We are grateful for this partnership which is making a difference in the lives of students. Four is MORE officially launched Jan. 1, 2012, under the leadership of Sister Margaret Stallmeyer and we are actively seeking to grow the program,” Armstrong said. Gateway Community College President Ed Hughes, said, “We’re delighted to partner with Thomas More College in the Four is More program. It’s a great way for our students to continue their education and save very substantial sums of money on a four-year degree. Our collaboration with Thomas More dates back to 2005 when we signed our first articulation agreement, and the Four is More program provides even greater benefits for our students. We really appreciate this partnership and the warm welcome that TMC has given our graduates.” Ison has enjoyed his experience at Thomas More thus far. “If you want a personal classroom experience where the teacher knows your name, Thomas More is the place. The teachers and faculty do everything they can to help and are really personable. The teachers always seem available to help you when you need it.” Students interested in participating in Four is More should complete the Thomas More College admission application, which is free. They then need to request that their final Gateway transcripts be sent to Thomas More’s enrollment office. A maximum of 64 credits will transfer. Enrollment counselors at TMC will meet with prospective students and discuss financial aid packages. FAFSA does apply to this program, and there are a variety of other scholarships available. For more information about Four is More financial aid opportunities, contact Katie Jaeger at 859344-3324.

Highlands runners repeat at state By James Weber

LEXINGTON — Highlands High School will lose two seniors from its starting seven who won’t be around as the Bluebirds girls cross country team goes for a three-peat in 2014. Paige Dauer and Frances Tracy will depart, but the rest of the lineup is set to come back from a Highlands team that won the Class 2A state championship Nov. 9 at Kentucky Horse Park. “(Dauer) has been running since she came here, and Frances, this is her first year after running track,” said freshman Sydney Ossege. “We have to come back next year and stick together to keep this going for them.” Highlands scored 76 points,

faithful held their breath. Quarterback Drew Houliston did not return to the game. Backup Beau Hoge entered the game, and failed to complete any of his five pass attempts in relief. Highlands lost its first and only game of the season, but more importantly, lost its starting quarterback. The 30-27 loss to Elder on Oct. 25 was not as much of a setback as the injury suffered by starting quarterback Drew Houliston in that game. Highlands High School’s football team survived the shoulder injury to Houliston, and the senior returned in time for the Bluebirds’ first round playoff win, a 70-6 domination of Boyd County. “I was more excited for that game than any game all year,” Houliston said. In Houliston’s absence in the regular season finale against Warren Central, Hoge acquitted himself well. He completed 19 of 31pass attempts for 417 yards and four touchdowns, leading the Bluebirds to a thrilling 71-69 win. Highlands held a 41-7 lead, before Warren Central stormed back behind a powerful rushing attack. Highlands surrendered a state record 918 yards of total offense, including 716 rushing yards, to Warren Central, but survived the comeback bid. Head coach Dale Mueller gave Houliston the option of returning for the playoff opener against Boyd County. While he

wasn’t quite 100 percent, he was able to pass for 156 and four touchdowns, completing 11 of 18 passes before turning the game over to Hoge. “Coach told me it was up to me (if I wanted to play),” Houliston said. “I missed some throws that I usually don’t miss. I was a little more sore than usual the next day, but I expected that.” Nick Kendall rushed for 156 yards and two touchdowns on just five carries, and Hoge passed for two touchdowns. Highlands now faces Ashland Blazer for the second straight postseason. Last year, the Bluebirds defeated Blazer in the second round. Houliston is willing to play through the pain to lead his team back to the top of Class 4A. “We focus on every week, but it is on our minds every year that it’s either win state, or it’s not a successful season,” Houliston said. “After the first round, anything can happen.”

TMC football clinches share of PAC championship By Adam Turer

Thomas More College piled up 563 yards of offense and overcame a slow start to defeat Bethany College, 49-14, on Nov. 9. The victory clinched at least a share of the Presidents’ Athletic Conference championship for the Saints. The Saints held Bethany quarterback Matt Grimard to just 136 passing yards on 47 attempts, and to negative six rushing yards on six carries. Grimard entered the game third in the nation in total offense, averaging 359.5 yards per game. Junior center Kevin Morrison was in the middle of the offensive onslaught. The Covington Catholic graduate, who missed the past two seasons after suffering a

knee injury, is glad he made the decision to come back to football. He is part of a group that is blocking for running back Domonique Hayden’s recordbreaking season. Hayden set yet another school record on Saturday, breaking the single-season rushing record of 1,736 yards set by Will Castleberry in 2000. Junior Bobby Leonard (Dixie Heights) produced 145 yards of offense and two touchdowns (one rushing, one receiving). Sophomore Goose Cohorn (Dixie Heights) added 85 yards and one touchdown on six receptions. The passing game opened things up for Hayden to do his damage. The Saints have demonstrated that they are among the nation’s best on both sides of the ball. Right guard Danny Mohs (Elder) is the only

senior starter on the Saints offense, which bodes well for the future. Right now, Thomas More is concerned with finishing the 2013 season strong. The Saints travel to rival Mount St. Joseph for Bridge Bowl XVIII. Last year the Saints trounced the Lions at home, 75-6. Thomas More is looking to extend its winning streak in the series to six games. With both an offense and defense ranked in the top 20 in all of Division III, the 8-1 Saints are again favored over the 5-3 Lions. The Bridge Bowl is a must-win game for the Saints, who will also need some help in order to return to the Division III playoffs after a one year absence. The Bridge Bowl kicks off at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16, at Schueler Field in Delhi.

Have a little talk with Jesus I was reminded of an old hymn the other day. I couldn’t quite remember the lyrics, but when I looked them up, it took me back to being a young girl and hearing my mom sing the tune around the house as she was cleaning and cooking. It’s a song that was covered by both Loretta Lynn and Brenda Lee and the second Julie House verse is my favorite. COMMUNITY “I may have doubts RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST and fears and my eyes may be filled with tears, “but Jesus is a friend who watches day and night. “I go to Him in prayer and He knows my every care. “And just a little talk with my Jesus is gonna make it right.” I remembered that my mom often sang hymns around the house, and when she did, there was a certain

peace and security that just covered me like a blanket. Although storms in our family often lingered and could brew up at any given time, when my mom was calling on Jesus I somehow knew everything was OK. Just like the storm that raged when Peter got out of the boat in Matthew 14. After briefly walking on the water toward Jesus he turned his attention to his dire situation. Quickly realizing he could not help himself, what did he do? He called out to Jesus, and we are told that Jesus stretched out his hand and pulled him to safety (vs. 31.) The bible urges us to call out to God regularly. In 1 Thessalonians 5:17 we are told to “Pray without ceasing.” That means, continually without stopping. Call out to God throughout your busy days and your worry-filled nights. I think my mom’s singing was a form of prayer and calling out for her. (And what a blessing I received as a result.) We are also told in Luke 18:1 that “men always ought to pray and not lose

heart.” When Peter got out of the boat he lost his faith in Jesus for a moment. For our faith to really develop we must be consistent, persistent and endure in our prayer lives. God will answer. Jesus tells us in His own words in Luke 18:7-8, “And shall God not avenge his own elect who cry out day and night to him, though he bears long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he really find faith on the earth?” For God to avenge us and rescue us before we surely sink, we must stand firm in what we believe, and not waver. In order to stand firm we need to regularly “have our little talks with Jesus.” I’ve got a few things I need to share with him right now, how about you?

Prepare for pension-reform tales on Kentucky’s campaign trails Get ready for a lot of talk on the campaign trail next year about how significant progress was made in reforming Kentucky’s bloated pensions system during this year’s legislative session. The claims will be – to put it kindly – a real stretch. Considering that it’s impossible for a leopard to change its spots and the fact that the legislature did nothing to prevent beneficiaries – and benefits – from being added in the future, taxpayers Jim Waters are skeptical that the small changes the COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST Kentucky General COLUMNIST Assembly made in the state’s retirement systems earlier this year will yield the promised savings. Though steps were taken to change the legislative pension plan – essentially offering future lawmakers the same type of hybrid-cash plan that new state employees will have – taxpayers will remain on the hook for years due to past practices involving current politicians’ retirement treasure trove. For instance, Senate Bill 2 did nothing to prevent current lawmakers from supersizing their legislative pen-

sion checks by taking other plum government jobs, a practice allowed by House Bill 299 passed in 2005. The latest to milk the politicians’ pension cow is Lexington State Sen. Kathy Stein, who followed in the footsteps of former Senate President David Williams by accepting a judgeship with its six-figure salary. When it came to Senate policy, Stein, a liberal Democrat, and Williams, a Republican, could not have been farther apart in their views. But when it involves milking the taxpayers for their retirement, they are two of the many peas in the Kentucky Retirement Systems’ pod. Like Williams, Stein has made a career out of state politics. She was elected to the Kentucky House of Representatives nearly 17 years ago and then moved to the Senate in 2008. Since Kentucky’s public-pension systems are a secret as big as the legislative pension bonus that Stein will collect, we can only estimate what her retirement will cost taxpayers. Pension expert Lowell Reese, who publishes Kentucky Roll Call and was a former state Chamber of Commerce executive, calculates that Stein’s legislative pension – which will be based on three years of her six-figure salary as a judge rather than her 17 years as a part-time legislator – will be more than



A publication of

$860,000 higher than it would have been without the 2005 bill. Instead of basing her legislative pension on $40,668 – her high-three years’ average as a part-time lawmaker – she will collect a legislative pension based on her high-three years’ salary as a judge, a position that currently pays $124,618. Plus, she will be eligible for a second pension in the commonwealth’s judicial retirement plan. It’s all too similar to Williams’ pension “bonus.” Agriculture Commissioner James Comer, a former Tompkinsville legislator, commendably cleaned up the mess left by Richie Farmer, the disgraced former commissioner who’s headed for prison after a storybook career as a member of the University of Kentucky basketball team known as the “Unforgettables.” Yet will Comer, the talented young politician, be as dedicated to cleaning up the repugnant pension system he voted for as a state representative in 2005?

If you like your plan, you can’t keep it For nearly five years, Kentuckians heard President Obama repeat one very familiar phrase: “If you like your current health care plan, you can keep it.” Kentuckians took the president at his word as he echoed this promise over and over again. Now that Obamacare is coming into effect, we’re learning that millions of people won’t be able to keep the plan they have – despite the president’s promise. Unfortunately, it’s not hard to find examples of KentuckMitch ians who are being told, McConnell through no fault of COMMUNITY their own, that the RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST health insurance plan they have relied on and want to keep is being canceled, and many are finding that Obamacare’s alternatives are more costly. Take one constituent who reached out to me from Burlington. He found out that his policy will be discontinued next year. He’s not happy that a plan on the Obamacare exchanges will dramatically drive up his insurance costs from under $400 a month to more than $700 – with zero subsidies available. “My wife and I are 54,” he wrote. “We don't need maternity care – and we don’t need Obamacare.” Unfortunately, stories like this are all too common in the Commonwealth. In fact, 130,000 Kentuckians with individual policies have received cancellation notices, and yet only about 4,600 individuals have signed up for private insurance through the Kentucky exchange. Another 150,000 small group policies will be canceled, including policies held by groups like the Louisville Bar Association. Liberal Democrats and Obama supporters in Kentucky are hailing the president’s health law as something positive, and bragging that 32,000 Kentuckians signed up for coverage in the last month. But when a paltry 32,000 signups are weighed against the nearly 10 times as many Kentuckians whose insurance coverage is being canceled, it’s obvious that Obamacare has been a net loser for Kentucky. Plus, 85 percent of those who sign up are signed up on Medicaid (free health care), not private plans. Multiply this problem across all 50 states, and it’s no wonder that the AP has reported that 3.5 million Americans will see their current health insurance plans canceled. And despite the president’s many promises to the contrary, we now know that the administration knew ahead of time that millions of Americans would lose their current policies when Obamacare went into effect. Let’s face it – Obamacare’s failures aren’t restricted to just a website. The law is proving to be a calamity for millions of Americans who, through no fault of their own, are being forced to drop health insurance plans they like and purchase different ones with higher costs. It’s still not too late to act to stop the worst parts of this law. That’s why, in the U.S. Senate, I have sponsored legislation to help protect thousands of Kentuckians from losing the health insurance plans they like and want to keep. If you can speak personally to the harmful effects of the new health care law, I hope you’ll contact my office at Sen. Mitch McConnell can be reached at 859578-0188; or

Students reflect on dreams, beliefs By Kamellia Soenjoto Smith

“I believe in myself, in my strength to succeed, in my very own abilities, in my possibilities to be realities,” wrote Tanvi Rakesh, a first-grader at Longbranch Elementary School in Union. She is just one among nearly 100 local students participating in the PTA’s Cultural Arts Reflections Program, presented by the 14th District PTA. Her essay will go on to compete for a blue ribbon at the state level. Rakesh doesn’t just write, she also composes music. Her entry in the music composition category has qualified for the state competition, too. “Last year, her music went all the way to the national level,” said her mother Radha Rakesh. Fifth-grader Logan Albrinck of Thornwilde Elementary School in Hebron will compete at state with one of his photographs. “My husband started taking pictures maybe four years ago as a hobby,” his mother Alice explained. “Logan just started picking up his dad’s camera, sometimes without asking. And he realized that Logan has an eye. He knows the right moment to snap the picture.” Sydney Hicks, a seventh-grader at Twenhofel Middle School in Independence, paints. “Let the mystery behind the door inspire you” is the message of her painting. Eleven-year old Loghan Currin, also from Twenhofel, loves dancing. “I like to express my-

self and show off how I feel,” she said. “So I just dance.” Together with a friend, she choreographed a dance and their work made it to state. There is even a category for film production. “My video is about the water crisis,” Lillian Hale wrote on her entry form. The second-grader, from Stephens Elementary School in Burlington, was moved after seeing a documentary on the subject. “It inspired me to help, and I want to inspire other people.” “Believe, Dream, Inspire” is the theme for this year’s program. “This is their way of shining,” said Linda Netherly, the program’s chair woman for the 14th District PTA. Entries were received from 272 elementary, middle, and high school students from Kenton, Boone, and Campbell counties. They were on display at William E. Durr branch of Kenton County Public Library recently. Netherly said 42 entries will go to the state competition. The winners will be recognized at a celebration Thursday, Nov. 21, at Campbell County High School. For next year’s contest, the theme will be “The world would be a better place if ...” “I have children that I have seen year in and year out. They come back, I see them progress,” Netherly said. “They might not have started out as winners, but they’ve eventually done well.” She has had winners at the district, state, and even national level. “It’s really awesome when that happens.”

Liqueur, salad recipes kick off holiday season

Double Citrus Limoncello

The great thing about this is it keeps just about forever in the freezer. You can use all lemons for classic limoncello. This year I made some with a combo of lemons and limes. It was different, and good. 2 pounds lemons, thick skinned 4 limes, thick skinned if you can find them 4 cups good quality 100 proof vodka 3 cups sugar 3 cups water

Pour vodka in large gallon glass jar or container. Wash fruit very well using hot water to remove wax coating. Pat dry. Remove zest with a vegetable peeler. The zest is the colored part. If some of the white part underneath the skin is visible, cut it off. That’s the pith and it’s very bitter (though it is the most nutritious part of the peel). If you can’t get it all off, do the best you can. Place zest in jar with vodka and cover. Let sit at room temperature for at least a week, or up to three weeks. The vodka will take on the color and flavor of the citrus as it steeps. Bring sugar and water to a simmer and stir until

slices, cloves, cinnamon sticks and rum. Bring to boil and then simmer 10 minutes. Serves about 10.

while. It should be nice and white. If it tastes vinegary or not really spicy, it’s old and needs to be replaced.

Thanksgiving will be here before you know it and some of you are already preparing your grocery list. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday since it’s just about food, family and friends – no presents required. Yes, it can get stressful, especially if you’re hosting the Rita feast. As I Heikenfeld tell you RITA’S KITCHEN every year, it’s not only about the food, but who sits in the chairs. Some advice from one who has been there, done that: Parsley and whipping cream are great culinary BandAids. During one of my recent classes, the subject of limoncello for the holidays came up. If you want to give this as a gift or serve it at Christmas, it’s best to start the process now.

behavior is at dog parks. It seems that nearly every time I take my dog, Nosey to one, some issue comes up. For example, twice now, the same dog has tried to “make love” to her quite aggressively and the owner has not taken steps to stop it until I have become quite vocal. The second time it happened, I put Nosey’s leash on her and left immediately. The owner defended himself and his dog’s actions by laughing and saying, “It’s OK, he’s neutered.” I replied that it was far from OK and that he needed to control his dog. Angry and frustrated over this and other previous incidents, I turned to Facebook, asking my friends their thoughts. Apparently, I really hit a nerve, because within an hour I had several dozen replies. My friend Jeff King, who owns Pets Plus in Taylor Mill with his wife, Hazel, is an authority on the subject, having served as one of the directors of the Kenton Paw Park. So, I called him. “Following the rules and the judicious use of diplomacy is key to being a good dog park citizen,” he said. “Everybody has to follow some rules,” he explained. “The dog parks themselves must establish rules that make them a safe and fun environment for everybody. Secondly, they need to enforce them. “Dog owners who want to use a dog park’s resources must first and foremost take responsibility for their dogs and be vigilant at all times.

The Rawe Foundation also raised funds from a firsttime volleyball tournament at The Sandbar in June, and from personal contributions from family members, extended family members and friends, Rawe said.

The Rawe Family Foundation understands how important it is for children and families to have access to trauma informed mental health services as they begin their journey of healing and rebuilding their childhood.” Henderson said that last year the advocacy center provided nearly 300 mental health sessions to children, thanks to the backing of the Rawe Family Foundation. “It is apparent to us from the NKYCAC's mission and from meeting and talking with Vickie, her staff and other volunteers, that the NKYCAC pays attention to the little things that matter at such a time in individual’s lives,” said Roger Rawe,

Fort Wright attorney to lead bar association By Amy Scalf

FORT WRIGHT — A former city council member and current city attorney, Todd McMurtry will soon get the title of president. McMurtry, 50, is a partner at Gerner and Kearns and was elected president of the Northern Kentucky Bar Association beginning in 2015; he’ll work in 2014 as the legal organization’s president-elect. “It’s basically a threeyear term,” said Julie Jones, the bar association’s executive director. McMurtry will serve as immediate past president in 2016. She said that in addition to presiding over the

organization in 2015, the first and third years of the role require McMurtry to support the president at the time. “Rob Ziegler of Ziegler and Schneider is president next year,” she said. “Since I came in the Northern Kentucky Bar Association has been growing at a record pace, and I think those are two motivated strong presidents who will help us keep providing resources and benefits for our members. I’m very excited about these two gentlemen coming in.” McMurtry, who resides in Fort Wright, is a graduate of Covington Latin High School and Northern Kentucky Uni-

choice,” said Fort Wright Mayor Joe Nienaber. “Todd is thorough, unbe-

lievably thorough, with the highest ethical principles. He’s a very good at-

torney, but he’s a good man first.” McMurtry, a father of three, said the time was right for him to volunteer more, although he serves as city attorney for three cities – Fort Wright, Park Hills and Villa Hills. “My children are older. My youngest is a senior in high school, and I literally decided that next year would be the perfect time to get more involved. This just happened naturally,” he said. “I was encouraged to run and felt it was good for the bar association to have a competitive election.

CRESCENT SPRINGS — Like the superheroes and extraordinary creatures they draw, Mackenna Baughman and Lindsay Culp are smart, skilled and prepared for success. They’re also teenaged high school students who advanced their artistic careers at the 2013 Cincinnati Comic Expo in September. The pair met in second grade, when Lindsay complimented Mackenna’s dragon drawing, and they’ve been friends and artistic co-conspirators ever since. As the show’s first under-18 artists on display at Greater Cincinnati’s largest comic book show, Mackenna, 17, a junior at Lloyd Memorial High School, and Lindsay, 16, a junior at Dixie Heights High School, hope to inspire even younger artists. “Maybe we’ll be trendsetters,” said Mackenna. “I hope the younger kids think of us as good role models,” Lindsay said. Lindsay said participating among more than 100 comic book creators and artists in the expo this year was a great experience. “We got to meet a lot of fellow artists. We were busy doing on-the-spot sketches and personal comic badges and sold many of our prints,” she said. They plan to have a booth again next year and are looking into setting up at more events in different places. Last year, they attended the expo for the first time, and were both amazed to be in the presence of artists they had admired.

Mackenna Baughman and Lindsay Culp were some of the the Cincinnati Comic Expo’s youngest artists. AMY SCALF/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

“It was really cool meeting the artists, and it was awesome because we got insightful tips about what we should do,” said Mackenna. “No matter how old you are, as an artist, you’re still learning things,” said Lindsay. Despite their youth, the artists have been accepting commissions through online art forum deviantART for years, and have created prints of several popular characters for their booth. While Lindsay prefers to use her talent creating animation, Mackenna would like to become a concept artist, which she said means that she’d design the characters, monsters and costumes that would be featured in comic books, graphic novels, television shows or even movies.

Independence businesses give veterans the VIP treatment By Amy Scalf


There are many ways to show patriotism, and for Independence businesses, there’s now one more. The American Legion Post 275 Moon Brothers and the Independence Business Association now offer the Veterans of Independence Program, or VIP, which will identify businesses that offer discounts for veterans. Participating businesses will get a window cling or framed certificate for the wall to display. “This just lets veterans know which businesses offer discounts, because sometimes it feels embarrassing to ask,” said Wayne Lohmoeller, Post 275 commander. “We just want to make veterans aware of it,” said Rusty Mardis, who operates the Independence Veterans Office at the In-

dependence Senior and Community Center. “This puts it right out there. Some businesses who don’t offer discounts might want to.” Mardis said there are roughly12,000 veterans in Northern Kentucky, not counting active duty, re-

serves or National Guard. “This program will show veterans how much they are appreciated in the local community and allow veterans to support the businesses that support them,” said Mardis. For more info, call the post at 859-429-0750.



It’s the time of the year for turkey talk Across America, Thanksgiving plans are being made. The menu, the decorations and the guest list are being finalized. In many homes, turkey will be the star of the meal. In fact, the National Turkey Federation estimates more than 46 million turkeys will be cooked this year for Thanksgiving. Whether your choose a large, bone-in turkey, a frozen turkey breast or roll to cook, or a precooked bird, there are some food safety consid-

erations to remember. Avoid waiting until the last minute to purchase your turDiane key. Mason Frozen EXTENSION turkeys, NOTES turkey breasts and turkey rolls need to be safely thawed prior to preparation. Thawing meat in the refrigerator is the safest and preferred method.

Place the packaged turkey in a large pan in the refrigerator. The pan will keep any juices from leaking onto shelves or other food items. It may take five or six days to safely thaw a large turkey in the refrigerator. It takes about 24 hours for each 4-5 pounds of turkey to thaw in a 40-degree refrigerator. Properly thawed, turkey will keep for two days before it must be cooked or refrozen. Plan ahead to allow enough time for thawing and for

the space required in the refrigerator. Fresh turkeys should be purchased no more than two days prior to preparation. It is best to place an order to ensure the bird is ready for pickup when you need it. Precooked turkeys and turkey breasts should be used within three or four days of purchase. If you are not able to use all of the precooked meat, it may be safely frozen for later use. Wrap it well, label it, and plan to use it within a

month or two. Depending on the amounts of precooked meat frozen, it may take 48 hours to thaw in the refrigerator. When planning your menu, the Food Safety Inspection Service recommends purchasing three-fourths to one pound of bone-in turkey per person; plan for onehalf pound per person of boneless breast of turkey. Expect to need about three-fourths pound per person if serving a bonein turkey breast. After cooking and

serving, do not allow the turkey to sit at room temperature for more than two hours. Plan to use or freeze all leftover turkey within two days of serving. This helps decrease the likelihood of food borne illness from improperly stored food. A little advanced planning now will help decrease your stress this holiday season.

Planting bulbs now can light way to spring Question: Which flower bulbs are best for this area, and when should they be planted? Answer: You can plant flower bulbs any time from October through December. Consider Mike planting a Klahr variety of HORTICULTURE types so CONCERNS you can enjoy their cheerful colors from late winter through late spring. Some even bloom in the summer or fall. Deer will eat tulips and a few other bulbs, but usually do not touch daffodils, which also seem to thrive longer in our clay soils. The earliest blooming bulbs for color next Feb-

ruary and March include crocus, Greek anemone, glory-of-the-snow, winter aconite, snowdrops, daffodils, and Siberian squill. Several of these continue blooming into April. Others that bloom in April include trout lily, crown imperial, hyacinth, grape hyacinth, puschkinia, and tulips. Some of these continue blooming into May. Additional hardy bulbs, tubers and corms that can be planted now for May bloom include allium, camassia, Spanish squill, and bluebells. Many alliums keep blooming into June and July, and are joined by other summer bloomers such as brodiaea, asiatic lilies, and aurelian lilies. Oriental lilies bloom in July and August, when they are joined by various types

of lycoris. Autumn crocus closes the show in September. All the above mentioned bulbs, tubers and corms may be safely planted this fall for seasonal bloom in 2014 and subsequent years. Most bulbs will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions. They generally do best in soils with a pH range of 5.5 to 6.5, although some, such as hyacinths, do better in a slightly more acidic soil. In general, soil type is not as important as soil drainage. Avoid planting in low, wet areas, or in soils with poor drainage

because bulbs will not reach maximum growth potential and will often rot under such conditions. When choosing a planting location, consider that most bulbs prefer full sun conditions. Spring blooming bulbs can be planted under the canopy of deciduous trees. These bulbs generally bloom and complete most of their growth cycle before trees fully leaf out. Bulbs and corms are generally planted at a depth equal to two to three times the diameter

of the bulb. Some exceptions include stem rooting lilies, which need to be planted a little deeper, and the Madonna lily, which is planted just below the soil surface. Soil type also affects planting depths. Bulbs should be planted deeper in sandy soils than in clay soils. Most bulbs do not require a fertilizer application at planting. Although it is not essential,

applying bone meal may be beneficial in some soils. You should water all bulbs thoroughly at planting time. This not only helps to establish good contact between soil and bulb, but also helps to initiate root growth as soon as possible. Mike Klahr is a Boone County extension agent.

Please take notice that Duke Energy Kentucky, Inc. has applied to the Kentucky Public Service Commission for approval to revise its Demand Side Management (DSM) rate for electric service and gas service for residential and commercial customers. Duke Energy Kentucky’s current monthly DSM rate for residential gas customers is ($0.039396) per hundred cubic feet and for non-residential gas customers is $0.000000 per hundred cubic feet. Duke Energy Kentucky’s current monthly DSM rate for residential electric customers is $0.001988 per kilowatt-hour and for non-residential customers is $0.001104 per kilowatt-hour for distribution service and $0.001070 per kilowatt-hour for transmission service. Duke Energy Kentucky seeks approval to revise these rates as follows: Duke Energy Kentucky’s monthly DSM rate for residential gas customers would increase to $0.054918 per hundred cubic feet and for non-residential gas customers would remain at $0.000000 per hundred cubic feet. Duke Energy Kentucky’s monthly DSM rate for residential electric customers would increase to $0.003062 per kilowatthour and for non-residential customers would increase to $0.001128 per kilowatthour for distribution service and would decrease to $0.000848 per kilowatt-hour for transmission service. The rate contained in this notice is the rate proposed by Duke Energy Kentucky. However, the Public Service Commission may order a rate to be charged that differs from this proposed rate. Such action may result in a rate for consumers other than the rate in this notice. The foregoing rates reflect a proposed increase in electric revenues of approximately $1.59 million or 0.49% over current total electric revenues and an increase of $5.84 million or 5.98% over current gas revenues. A typical residential gas customer using 70 ccf in a month will see an increase of $6.60 or 9.2%. A typical residential electric customer using 1000 kWh in a month will see an increase of $1.07 or 1.2%. A typical non-residential electric customer using 40 kilowatts and 14,000 kWh will see an increase of $0.33 or 0.03%. A non-residential customer served at transmission voltage using 10,000 kilowatts and 4,000,000 kWh will see a decrease of $887.76 or (0.4%). Non-residential gas customers will see no change in their bills from this application. Any corporation, association, body politic or person may by motion within thirty (30) days after publication or mailing of notice of the proposed rate changes, submit a written request to intervene to the Public Service Commission, 211 Sower Boulevard, P.O. Box 615, Frankfort, Kentucky 40602, and shall set forth the grounds for the request including the status and interest of the party. The intervention may be granted beyond the thirty (30) day period for good cause shown. Written comments regarding the proposed rate may be submitted to the Public Service Commission by mail or through the Public Service Commission’s website. A copy of this application filed with the Public Service Commission is available for public inspection at Duke Energy Kentucky’s office at 4580 Olympic Boulevard, Erlanger, Kentucky 41018 and on its website at This filing and any other related documents can be found on the Public Service Commission’s website at 564742
