Cold Spring streaming stormwater plans By Amy Scalf

COLD SPRING — As stormwater management flows into the hands of city leaders, Mayor Mark Stoeber is making sure everyone’s paperwork is just right. For residents, that means knowing Sanitation District 1 bills ended Sept. 30 and Cold Spring’s billing started Oct. 1 as

part of the property tax bills. For city leaders, government officials and volunteer committee members, that means preStoeber paring the city’s Storm Water Quality Management Plan four months ahead of schedule. Cold Spring took over its own

stormwater management after city leaders settled a two-yearlong lawsuit against SD1 in June. “After the changeover, we thought SD1 was one month behind, so we informed residents that billing was delayed by one month, so they would receive a bill in October for September,” said Stoeber. “As I reconciled my bills, I found out they were two months behind. It’s impor-

tant for people to check their payment history, but at the end of the day, there was no doublebilling.” City Council approved stormwater fees in September, charging residents $4.50 each month, and non-residential business owners are charged $4.50 for each 3,000 square feet, or equivalent residential unit, of impervious areas such as rooftops, paved parking lots, drive-

ways, sidewalks and gravel surfaces on the property that do not allow water to seep through. The city’s website, at, includes additional information, including that the fees are expected to generate about $250,000 per year. Costs for stormwater management are projected at $280,000 per year See PLANS, Page A2

Be Santa to a senior this season

By Melissa Stewart

Christmas trees will pop up in several Northern Kentucky stores a little early this year. These aren’t just any Christmas trees. These will be covered with special ornaments that include the first name of a senior resident in need. You’ll see them starting Friday, Nov. 15. “There are a lot of programs around the holidays for children. It seems, however, that the senior population is often forgotten,” Florence Home Instead Senior Care general manager Les Murphy said. “During

GET INVOLVED Pick up an ornament with a senior’s name to be Be a Santa to a Senior at the following locations: » Walgreens, 606 Buttermilk Pike, Crescent Springs » Walgreens, 8193 Mall Road, Florence » Wal-mart Supercenter, 3450 Valley Plaza Parkway, Fort Wright

the holidays they can feel isolated and alone.” Home Instead Senior Care, an in-home care agency, is teaming up with non-profit agencies and area retailers to change that with Be a Santa to a Senior. Since 2008, Home Instead in Florence has worked with local nursing and rehabilitation facil-

ities, Northern Kentucky Ombudsman and the Area Office on Aging in Northern Kentucky to gather the names of seniors and their Christmas wish lists. This year there are 250 names of seniors, Murphy said. The public is invited to pick out an ornament with a senior’s

The winter coat. It’s a necessity for all, but for many only a luxury. Last year, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul distributed more than 1,800 donated new and gently used coats, hats, gloves and mittens, and scarfs to Northern Kentucky chilSettle dren and adults. The society, headquartered in Erlanger, has organized the coat drive and distribution for more than 20 years. “It makes us feel really good to provide something these individuals need,” St. Vincent advancement director Lou Settle said. “It puts a smile on their face, especially the children, when they try on their coat. It really does warm your heart.” According to Settle, for many families, buying new winter coats is not an option. “These families struggle just to put food on the table and a roof over their heads,” she said. “We want to help. We want to make sure everyone has a warm coat this winter.”

FYI For more information on the coat drive, visit To volunteer during the distribution days, contact Carolyn Ashcraft at 859-341-3212, ext. 2 or

Coats can be dropped off at all St. Vincent de Paul locations in Dayton, Erlanger, Falmouth and Newport; all Gold Star Chili restaurants in Northern Kentucky; Kemba Credit Union in Florence; and Youthland Academy in Fort Wright. Donations can also be be made at the following fire departments: Alexandria, Burlington, Covington, Independence, Edgewood, Erlanger, Florence, Fort Mitchell, Fort Thomas, Fort Wright, Hebron, Taylor Mill and Union. For more information, go to There is a particular need for children and plus size adult coats, Settle said. Anyone who needs a coat, is welcome to take one. Phylliss Johnson who has donated a coat in previous years, said she is happy to donate. See HEART, Page A2

program’s administration and is required by the Kentucky Division of Water as an agent for the Environmental Protection Agency. “Because of committee members’ hard work and expertise, we will be presenting this to Council in December and could have our application in before the end of the year,” he said. He said the plan covers six areas: » Public education and information – “That is getting the information out to

residents not to drain their oil in the storm drains, and to let them know how pollutants get into stormwater,” said Stoeber. » Public involvement – The committee intends to host an interactive display called an enviroscape during the city’s annual Day at the Park, as well as scheduling a stream cleanup day, and speakers who visit schools to talk about pollution effects. » Rules and regulations – City leaders need

to write and pass ordinances to determine and enforce regulations. » Pre-construction inspections – Builders will also need to follow specific regulations. » Post-construction inspections – After the building is completed, a second inspector will make sure things are right. » Compliance – Properties maintained by the city also have to pass inspections.

unwrapped gift is returned to the location they received the ornament. Last year, 1,200 gifts were collected. “A gift goes a long way and brightens their spirits even throughout the new year,” Murphy said. Una Berry, 68, of Burlington has received gifts through Be a Santa to a Senior in previous years. Berry lives on a fixed income and is raising her 17-year-old grandson; her 20-year-old grandson just moved out on his own. Without the generously of those who purchase gifts

she said her holidays wouldn’t be the same. “It feels great to get a gift,” she said. “It warms my heart to think that there are people out there who care. They are wonderful people. I hope this program continues forever.” This year, the program runs until Dec. 13. Home Instead will host a community gift wrapping party, open to the public, at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 18, at 268 Main St., Florence. T.J. Connelly, manager at the Mall Road Wal-

greens in Florence, said he plans to have a group of employees help wrap the gifts. His store has put up a tree for the program since it began. “I think that this program is a good way to give back to the seniors in the community and to show them that people care about them,” Connelly said. He said customers have been very supportive; last year 200 gifts were collected at the Walgreens.


Each year Diematic sets out a barrel to collect coats from employees. “This is something we can do that’s so simple and a big help to a lot of nice folks,” Johnson said. Distribution of coats will be 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, Nov. 23, at Covington Latin School and John G. Carlisle School in Covington, and 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, Dec. 7, at Blessed Sacrament Church in Fort Mitchell and Newport Primary School. Volunteers are welcome and needed to help with the distribution, said Settle. Those interested in volunteering can contact Carolyn Carolyn Ashcraft

at 859-341-3212, ext. 2 or carolyn.ashcraft@svdp “Last year in the Covington and Newport locations close to 400 people show up in each location to pickup a coat during the three-hour coat distribution,” she said. “We rely on volunteers to help us assist people in finding sizes, answer questions and check people out so that we have the data regarding the need for coats and the total number of children and adult coats distributed in each location.” Volunteers, she said, are essential for the distribution to run smoothly.

“I know there are people less fortunate out there,” said the administrative assistant at logistics company Deimatic in Hebron. “We want to try to help any way we can.”

Elderly homeowners helped during Prepare Affair Nearly 3,000 volunteers from People Working Cooperatively raked leaves and cleaned gutters for almost 1,000 elderly homeowners Nov. 9 for PWC’s 26th annual Prepare Affair. Volunteers from all walks of life worked in neighborhoods in Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana. The volunteers also helped elderly homeowners with fall prevention tips, addressing a common problem amongst the aging population.

“In addition to helping our clients prepare for winter by raking leaves and cleaning gutters, we are also addressing fall prevention, which is a rising problem in older adults, especially in our service region,” said Jock Pitts, president of People Working Cooperatively. With winter rapidly approaching, PWC is also taking applications for its free home weatherization program. Apply online at or call 859-331-1991.

TMC president playing football for charity Alexandria resident seeks state senate seat Republican Deb Sheldon of Alexandria has announced her candidacy for the open 24th senate district seat in the state legislature. Sheldon is the second Republican to announce herself as a candidate fill the open seat in the November 2014 election. Campbell County Assistant Prosecutor Wil Schroder, a Republican from Wilder, announced his intention to seek election to the seat in October. Sen. Katie Stine, RSouthgate, announced she will not seek re-election to the seat in 2014. Sheldon, a graduate of Northern Kentucky University with a degree in psychology, said in a news release she will fight to equalize funding

As most people prepare to cook their Thanksgiving meals, Thomas More College President David Armstrong prepares to play in a backyard football game for charity. He’ll drive to his hometown of Cleveland to play in the 24th annual Meadows Turkey Bowl. What started as a small gathering of friends in the Meadows’ yard has turned into the single largArmstrong est fundraising event in Medina County, benefiting St. Vincent de Paul. The game has attracted national attention as the amount of money raised grows each year: $126,000 in 2012 and $125,000 in 2011. Each of the 40 players ask their friends, family, neighbors and col-

for the university in comparison with other public universities in Kentucky. Sheldon is the wife of Troy Sheldon, Fourth Congressional District chairman for the Republican Party, though he won’t be involved in the campaign, she said in an Enquirer article. Sheldon has served in the Army National Guard as a nurse on helicopter ambulances, and her most recent job was spent working for about five years until 2006 as a pastor. She served as a pastor at Asbury United Methodist Church in Cold Spring, and Main Street United Methodist and First United Methodist churches in Covington.

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

He even arranged for TMC to be a corporate sponsor for this year’s game, which will allow for exposure for the college in northern Ohio as well as nationally through the press coverage generated by the event. In addition, he arranged for the donations given in his name to be routed to the local St. Vincent de Paul Society in Northern Kentucky. His personal goal is a minimum of $1,000. ���It couldn’t come at a better time as the number of calls we get from folks needing Thanksgiving meals and Christmas meals start to pour in.

Notre Dame celebrates 50 years in Park Hills HISTORICALLY SONG

By Chris Mayhew

PARK HILLS — Notre Dame Academy celebrated 50 years in Park Hills Oct. 29 with remembrances from alumni who joined students in rousing school spirit by singing together. Notre Dame moved in 1963 to Hilton Drive in Park Hills from Fifth Street in Covington where the school was first opened in 1906. School president Sister Mary Lynette Shelton, alumni and teachers spoke to students inside the gym during a prayer service. Sr. Shelton ended the program by leading a group of alumni in the singing of the school song “NDA we honor thee.” Shelton reminded the students how Sister Mary Agnetis wrote to businessman and hotel magnate Conrad Hilton in 1955 and convinced him to help the sisters fund a new building in Park Hills. Agnetis kept up a letter correspondence with Hilton for 10 years, said Sister Dolores Giblin, archivist for the school. The exchange of letters was kept and fills two binders. Giblin maintains the NDA Heritage blog where excerpts of the letters are posted. Giblin said Hilton ended up

donating $500,000 toward the $1.5 million cost of the Park Hills building. Hilton visited NDA in Park Hills in 1963. Sister Evelynn Reinke taught religion, English and history in the final year the academy was open in Covington “There was such a warm spirit there, and the floors were always kept shiny and the bulletin boards were always attractively,” Reinke said. She said she saw the warmth in the old building in 1963, where she continued teaching for six more years.

“I think you really have a really strong spirit of friendship and sisterhood among the students as well,” she said. Ellie Fathman, a senior from Edgewood, said she was shy and quiet at the start of her freshman year, and NDA has shaped who she has become. She hopes to study at the Carl H. Lindner College of Business at the University of Cincinnati. “This school kind of helped me flourish, and kind of showed me how to become a better person and find myself,” Fathman said.

The 50th anniversary is significant for students, she said. “It shows how long the Notre Dame has been around, especially making a difference in the Park Hills community,” Fathman said. “You have that unique experience of a single sex education that you can share with your classmates, and it’s a forever thing.” Fathman was one of two students chosen to read petitions during the prayer service and wear the traditional school capes. Marianne Toebbe Burke of Villa Hills, a 1966 NDA graduate, said in her speech to students she didn’t enjoy wearing the capes several times a year for special events. “They even wore those back when my mother graduated in 1945, and we were one of the last classes to wear them in the old school,” Burke said. Moving into the new school building in 1963 from Covington was the realization of a dream for students, she said. “We were going to school and having classes out in hallways

and in small closet rooms that used to be rooms for cloak rooms because there was no room for us,” Burke said. “And we didn’t get to take gym because the gym was all broken up into classrooms.” The new school provided a gym, student lounges, an art room and room for choral club practice in 1963, she said. “I still am very grateful that my parents scraped up enough money to send me here,” Burke said. “At the time the tuition was $125 which was a lot for back in those days.” Burke said she received a life-altering education she might not have gotten at other schools. “I just feel like it gave me just a better way of living my life on a little bit nicer level and with grace and dignity,” she said. Burke said after she graduated in 1966, like most Notre Dame girls at the time, she did not go onto college. “We all went into jobs,” she said. “And Notre Dame girls were highly sought as secretaries and office managers, and all you had to do was say you were a graduate from Notre Dame and you were on the top of the list for getting a job.” “Nowadays, there are so few girls who do not go onto college so it’s a big change in that way.”

ConnectKentucky lauds tech leaders

For the seventh time, ConnectKentucky honored the Commonwealth’s technology leaders at its 2013 Tech Day at The George and Ellen Rieveschl Digitorium in Griffin Hall at Northern Kentucky University. The 2013 Tech Day featured discussions on technology’s impact on education, history, and culture, federal policy updates, and a keynote speech by noted venture capitalist David Jones, Jr. Tech Day allows the state’s broadband leaders to gather and discuss the latest developments in, and impacts of, broadband technology across the state. The event, held in partnership with the Kentucky Historical Society, was sponsored by Humana, tw telecom, and AT&T. “Technology creates an environment for learning and improving quality of life. We need to make sure connectivity is available on campus ... and off campus,” said Tom Ferree, president and COO of ConnectKentucky parent organization Connected Nation. “Making sure broadband is accessible is not the only piece of the puzzle. We must factor in the workforce. Forty percent of businesses report it’s difficult or very difficult to find employees with necessary training. Digital learning programs that boost broadband adoption and use are a central piece to cultivating the best and brightest in our communities.” ConnectKentucky presented the following awards at the event:

Secondary Student Technology Award: Nicholas Boucher Villa Madonna Academy junior Nicholas Boucher designed and programmed the new Villa Madonna Academy website. The new website has special login areas for students, teachers, and parents and was quite a programming challenge for a junior in high school. Nicholas not only made it much more visual-

The implemented solution was a virtual desktop that allows students, faculty, and staff to log into what appears to be a “computer lab machine” via the Internet from any personal device. This solution has revolutionized the way that NKU provides software.

Instant Access Tours is helping Kentucky towns preserve and promote their history online; converting digital maps and brochures into virtual walking tours that can accessed online or by using your smart phone. Its first tour commemorated the 150th anniversary of the Civil War Battle of Augusta with a website,, and a 10-site walking tour that included signage with QR codes so visitors could access the online content via their smartphones.

Postsecondary Student Technology Award: Robert Crawford Crawford, a junior at Northern Kentucky University from Goshen, Ohio, is lead developer for entrepreneurial startup

company InstrumentLife. His responsibilities in this role include developing new product functionality within the Drupal framework, performing any support related tasks, and working directly with the clients and his managers to ensure new requirements and/or issues are addressed and implemented, within any required parameters, quickly and efficiently.

School District Technology Award: River Ridge Elementary, Kenton County Public Schools

Using technology in a way that not only enhances the capacity of the institution, but also is teaching a group of young leaders to be informed citizens, is what makes River Ridge Elementary School a worthy winner of the School District Technology Award. Guidance counselor Jill Dilts and school psychologist Jessica Roesch and their fifth-grade media team are using technology to teach 1,100 students and their families the value of digital information. Each day the fifth-grade media team uses technology to write,

shoot video, and edit a product that is professional and based on literacy standards.

Postsecondary Institution Technology Award: Murray State University The Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology at Murray State University recently upgraded its Learning Management System from an older system to Canvas.

Postsecondary Institution Technology Award: Northern Kentucky University Northern Kentucky University needed to provide access to discipline-specific software for students and faculty. In the past, converting classrooms into computer labs, purchasing many desktop computers and loading campus-licensed software, met the need but that solution took up much physical space, was limited to the number of computers provided and the currency of the hardware, and required students to be on campus during business hours.

Jan. 11, 2013, marked the culmination of months of preparation among NASA, Eastern Kentucky University, and Kentucky Educational Television. The result was a unique event: a live broadcast on KET from the International Space Station that featured astronaut Tom Marshburn and about 160 middle school students at EKU’s Hummel Planetarium. The centerpiece of the day was a live question-and-answer session with 20 students and Marshburn.

Non-profit Leadership in Technology Award: Kenton County Public Library Kenton County Public Library is a leader in providing digitized history and cultural content, ensuring area residents, researchers, students, and policy makers have access to hundreds of thousands of local history images, documents, maps, and other artifacts. The library’s substantial online resources include general reference, business materials, newspapers and magazines, eBooks, history, culture and society information, and much more.

Bluebirds ‘Kruse’ through early rounds Linebacker has 3 defensive TDs in 5 games By Adam Turer

Not surprisingly, Highlands High School has cruised through its first two playoff games. One remarkable statistic stands out: Linebacker Joey Kruse has scored as many postseason points as Highlands’ opponents have. Kruse has been the lucky recipient of some fortuitous bounces of the football. He has returned a fumble for a touchdown in each of the Bluebirds’ two playoff victories. “We’re always flying around,

trying to get the ball out,” said Kruse. “(The touchdowns have been a result of) flying to the ball and being in the right place at the right time.” The fact Kruse is on the field at all is a testament to Highlands’ “next man in” ethos. Kruse was injured for most of his junior season, and started his senior campaign as a backup. When senior Thomas Wrobleski went down with an injury, Kruse did more than just fill in. He has scored three defensive TDs in the past five games. “Coaches always tell us that even when things aren’t going your way, keep doing your thing, and your time will come,” said Kruse. His three fumble recoveries and an interception have provided a boost for a defense that

is often overshadowed by the Bluebirds’ record-breaking offense. Highlands has allowed just 12 points in the postseason, while the Bluebirds have racked up 126 points. The defense relishes being the Bluebirds’ hidden weapon. “We feel like we’re under the radar,” said Kruse. “People don’t realize how good our defense is.” The defense benefits from going against the powerful of-

fense every day in practice. The two units complement one another. The aggressive defense gets takeaways to put the ball back in the offense and quarterback Drew Houliston’s hands. The offense scores quickly, giving the defense more opportunities to make big plays. “Our offense makes it easy for us when they score in three plays,” said Kruse. The Bluebirds had a setback in the regular season finale, al-

lowing 69 points. Most of Warren Central’s touchdowns came in the second half when Highlands’ first string was on the sideline with a big lead, but the record-setting numbers allowed by the Bluebirds left the entire defense with a bad taste entering the postseason. “That gave us a chip on our shoulder heading into the playoffs,” said Kruse. With Wrobleski back in the starting lineup, Kruse will likely be limited to spot duty again as the Bluebirds face CovCath for the second time this year. The backups and starters, like the offense and defense, support one another, which has been one of the keys to Highlands’ championship reign. “We’re one big team, and one big family,” said Kruse.

NKU’s Todd Johnson (23) and San Diego’s Johnny Dee battle for the ball Nov. 16. TONY TRIBBLE/FOR THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

Norse take early lumps By James Weber

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS — The combination of a young team missing three of its top weapons, and one of the better midmajor teams in the country led to a rough night for the Northern Kentucky University men’s basketball team Nov. 16. NKU lost 75-44 to San Diego to drop to 0-3 for the season. The visiting Toreros improved to 4-0. They are picked to finish third in the West Coast Conference behind well-known national powers Gonzaga and Brigham Young. One of the few highlights on this rough night was sophomore center Jake Giesler. The Newport Central Catholic graduate, who was on the NKU bench last year and ineligible to play after transferring from Jacksonville, had nine points and15 rebounds. He played his first collegiate game on the same Bank of Kentucky floor where he had several postseason contests as a Thoroughbred. Freshman Daniel Camps led NKU with 11 points. “The results happen when you give effort, so when you look at us, who gave the best effort? Jake Giesler, and look what happened,” said NKU

head coach Dave Bezold. Bezold also praised Camps and sophomore guard Anthony Monaco, who guarded San Diego standout Johnny Dee. Dee came in averaging 21 points per game but was limited to nine against the Norse. NKU played without junior guard Jordan Jackson (tailbone injury), who scored a gamehigh 24 points in a season-opening 77-76 loss at Purdue, and sophomore guard Tyler White (disciplinary), who averaged 10.0 points in the first two games. Sophomore center Jalen Billups didn’t play in the second half after logging nine first-half minutes. Bezold said Billups cited fatigue. Billups played just the first nine games last season before a heart ailment and a knee injury caused him to miss the rest of the season. The lineup issues contributed to a near record-low offensive performance. The Norse made just 24.2 percent of their shots from the field – the lowest mark from the floor in the history of the program. The Norse also shot just 3-for-28 from 3point range Saturday night and 40.9 percent (9-for-22) from the free-throw line. “I wouldn’t have seen this coming, especially being at home. I thought we had some

pretty good looks, but unfortunately we were unable to put some positive possessions together,” Bezold said. “We could not hit anything, and San Diego took advantage of it, like good teams do.” Bezold said the offensive struggles were partially mental. “We had a run in the first half and then everybody on the court needed a break. We subbed for them and then we couldn’t regain that energy,” Bezold said. “They come over to the bench second-guessing wondering what they’re doing wrong, asking, ‘Am I rushing my shot?,’ when you know what, just shoot an open shot. If they’re there mentally like that it’s hard to rescue them at that point. Their limitations are between their ears right now.” NKU played Morehead State Tuesday night after print deadlines. NKU plays at Tulane 10 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23, then plays two games in Mexico Nov. 29-30. The next home game for the Norse is 12 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 15 against Chattanooga.

Tough scheduling helps NCC advance to regional final By James Weber

Four Clippers go Division I NCC senior QB Mac Franzen, No. 6, follows the block of junior Colin Hoover, No. 60, as he starts off on a 94-yard touchdown run in the first half. NewCath beat Walton-Verona 36-0 in the second round of the 2A playoffs Nov. 15 at Newport Stadium. JAMES WEBER/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

Franzen effectively put the game away following an excellent Bearcat punt that stopped at the 6yard line. On the first play, Franzen broke through the line on a keeper and outran everyone for a 94-yard score. That made it 14-0 in the second quarter. Franzen added a second rushing TD in the second half. Jacob Smith rushed for 145 yards and one score. Jack Sutkamp had a rushing TD as well. NCC rushed for 372 yards in the game. Michael Runyon led the receiving effort with two catches for 59 yards and also posted a key interception on defense. NCC limited Walton’s powerful rushing attack to 147 yards and allowed the Bearcats 21 passing

yards. Mason Compton had 97 rushing yards and Chris Latimore 45. “I think they had one completed pass,” said NCC head coach Dan Wagner. “You limit a team to one way to move the ball, you’ve got a chance. That’s what we tried to do. We had to stop (Compton) and (Latimore); they’re both very good football players. Compton’s a load. We got after them pretty good and I’m proud of the way they did it.” NCC travels to a Gallatin team (10-2) having one of its best seasons ever. They are looking to upgrade their execution as they continue their chase for a state title. With a win, NCC would host the Somerset/Prestonsburg winner in the state semifinals Nov. 29.

It took a quarter for the offense to really get rolling for the Newport Central Catholic High School football team. Senior quarterback Mac Franzen was the one rolling through the Walton-Verona defense a large part of the time as the Thoroughbreds rocked the Bearcats, 36-0, in a second-round Class 2A playoff game Nov.15 at Newport Stadium. NewCath takes an 8-4 record into Gallatin County this Friday, Nov. 22. The ‘Breds have taken their lumps against bigger schools this year. “That tough schedule in the beginning, that always prepares us for these games, especially next week going into the third round,” Franzen said. “We’re going to see better and better teams every week.” Franzen had 179 yards on12 carries to lead the offense, also throwing for 120 yards and a touchdown. After going three-andout on their first possession, the ‘Breds put together an 11-play, 86-yard drive that ended with Franzen rolling right and finding junior wide receiver Brandon Gray wide-open in the end zone for a 12-yard TD pass.

Marc Emral,, 578-1053


Be vigilant; call the police right away As mayor of a small city in Northern Kentucky, I’ve become very concerned lately when I hear from individuals within our city and from others across Northern Kentucky, of activity seen in their own neighborhoods and not reported. Individuals come to me and many of our elected officials and even police stating, “…it was just last week when I saw”, or “... I’ve been meaning to tell you something that happened about a month ago”, or “... you know about three to four days ago…” or I hear of a robbery because a garage door was left open. Most recently, I was sent a post from a social media site which read something like, “It (is) nice to see our neighbor-

hood being patrolled ... My neighbors business is busy.” Instead of contacting the police who can take action, this indiJim Hamberg vidual decided COMMUNITY to use social RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST media versus making a call to the police. It is very frustrating to receive information that is days much less weeks old and especially unclear. I am asking that you and your family members to make a pledge to each other (or yourself) as my wife and I have done. That is to call the Campbell County Dispatch Center whenever you see a suspicious

individual or vehicle. The phone number for the Campbell County Dispatch Center is 859-292-3622. Report suspicious persons and vehicles and inform the operator of the situation. This would be a “nonemergency” call. Request that an officer be sent to investigate. Call 911 if you feel the call is an emergency. As citizens, we have to be more vigilant to fight crime and potential crime in our own cities and especially on our own street. The police cannot be on every street and are not present every hour to observe our neighborhoods. They need our help. Unless you prefer the negative side of the potential outcome, pick up the phone and make the call. To have the police handle the issue, you

need to call. You know to never open your door to strangers. Secondly, most cities have a nosolicit ordinance. If someone approaches your door, don’t open it. Call the Campbell County Dispatch Center above and inform them of a solicitor or suspicious person giving a description and request an officer. They will dispatch an officer. Let the officer handle the situation. Remember, by calling you may be saving you or someone else from becoming a victim. Maybe that individual would be seen another day on another street or in a different city. The important part here is to be sure the incident is reported. Thirdly, keep your doors, including your garage doors,

vehicles and property closed and locked at all times. Encourage your children to do the same. If something should become missing or stolen – be sure to report the incident and call the police immediately. Finally, instead of posting things on social media thinking that will intimidate the police or elected officials take that time and call the Campbell County Dispatch Center. Be vigilant and help our police officers in fighting crime and this epidemic by helping them keep inappropriate individuals away and out of our towns and off of our streets. Jim Hamberg is mayor of Southgate.

God has specific promises Resources for for you and your life families facing drug addiction

Recently, I received a very precious gift from my parents: a new Bible. Although I have several, my husband and I were making some very difficult and lifechanging decisions regarding career and family, and my mom realized the one she had chosen would be a great tool for us. It’s a Life Principles Bible with everyday study applications written by wellknown evangelist Charles Stanley. It has opened wide a new door for me to study God’s word in a fresh, new way and even provided the opportunity for my husband and me to study together. The other day we began studying God’s promises. Although I have always been aware that God’s promises are many, I was overwhelmed to find indexed at the beginning of this Bible hundreds, maybe even thousands, of verses outlining promises of God on every topic imaginable. Did you know that God has specific promises for you to experience success in life? Promises for strength in difficult situations and promises of justice for those who are oppressed? Promises of triumph for those bound by addiction,


anger, and suffering? For virtually every situation we experience, God has a promise for overcoming. The question for so many is, “How can I experience those

promises?” And the answer, as well, is hidden in the treasures of his word. First, God promises to provide when we, seek a relationship with him first. Matthew 6:33 reminds us, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” In others words, God must become first in our lives, (before our children, our spouses, our work, etc.) for us to fully experience his promises. Second, when we seek God, we must fully understand and believe that he wants to give, regardless of the fact that we are undeserving. “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give

good things to those who ask Him.” (Matthew 7:11) God knows we don’t deserve what we are given, just as we give to those who are undeserving at times. But we give out of a deep love for those we are giving to, and that is God’s motivation too. He simply loves you. Period. Finally, we can more fully experience God’s promises when we understand that the supply of His gifts is not according to what we have but what he has. “And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19) My supplies are limited by human standards, but God’s supplies are limitless. This week, begin to look beyond what you see to what God sees, and truly experience the wonderful promises of provision, protection and prosperity that await a “child of the King!” Julie House is a former resident of Campbell County and graduate of Newport Central Catholic and NKU.

Drug abuse is a significant problem in Northern Kentucky. You may have heard that an addict cannot beat addiction unless they actually want to overcome it, but sometimes it may be necessary to force them along the right path even if they’re resisting. The court system can help through Casey’s Law. Casey’s Megan Law provides Mersch a means of COMMUNITY forcible inRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST tervention to parents, relatives, and friends when the addicted person is unable to recognize their need for treatment due to their active addiction. Treatment is sought without that person’s consent, without criminal charges, and regardless of age. To utilize Casey’s Law, fill out form AOC -700A, the Verified Petition for Involuntary Treatment, and file it with the district court clerk. The court reviews the petition and questions the petitioner (the person filing the petition) under oath. If there is probable cause to order treatment for the respondent (the person for whom treatment is sought), the judge orders the respondent to get evaluated by two qualified health professionals, one of whom must be a physician, which will determine if the respondent could benefit from treatment. A hearing will be held within 14 days, and if the court finds that treatment is appropriate, the judge will order the respondent to successfully complete a treatment program. The length and type of treatment can vary greatly. A benefit of Casey’s Law is that the court supervises the treatment. This adds an extra incentive for success, as failure to complete the treatment program may result in contempt of court and incarceration. A harsh wake-up call such as jail time is sometimes

necessary in dire situations. Although the petitioner must obtain access to and pay for the treatment, this allows the petitioner to decide how much or how little to spend. Free treatment facilities do exist. One place you might want to look is www.freere tucky. Other programs offering treatment, some on an income-based scale, can be located at www.findtreat Some local treatment facilities include: St. Elizabeth Healthcare (859-301-5966); Brighton Recovery Center for Women (859-282-9390); Transitions Inc. (859-491-4435 [for medication assistance] and 859-431-2531 [for intensive outpatient]); Recovery Works (502-570-9313); and NorthKey Community Care (859-3313292). Also, do not underestimate the value of support groups and counseling. As an exprosecutor, I routinely saw success from these types of programs. Drug abuse not only affects the addicted person, but it takes a serious toll on their families and friends. Both Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous sponsor local meetings for affected family members or friends. Some additional support groups are offered through Hope for Families Facing Addiction (859-630-8748), S.O.A.R. (859371-9988), and Celebrate Recovery (859-371-3787). Northern Kentucky is a tight-knit community, and there is help out there. Don’t let pride or shame get in the way of seeking help for someone you love or seeking help for yourself. When you are successful, share that knowledge and success with someone else. If we work collectively, we can help to stem the plague of addiction that hovers over our community. Megan Mersch is a practicing attorney at O’Hara, Ruberg, Taylor, Sloan & Sergent and a lifelong resident of Northern Kentucky.

Thanksgiving recipes feature cranberries, pumpkin Next week, our Community Press kitchens will be buzzing with activity, from drying the bread for the stuffing to making “must have” traditional pumpkin desserts. A reminder: Give your frozen turkey enough time to thaw. My experience Rita is that it Heikenfeld takes a lot RITA’S KITCHEN longer to thaw than the package states. If it’s not thawed in time, put the whole thing, wrapped, in cool water and change the water about every half hour until thawed. Also remember those who are alone, or can’t get out. Send a card, give them a call or, best idea, invite them to your table. And no matter how you spend this holiday, remember also that having some place to go is home, having someone to love is family and having both is a blessing.

Rita’s do-ahead, baked candied cranberries Another recipe that changes each time I make it. I really like this version. If you substitute Splenda, use the kind that measures out just like sugar. Now if you don’t want to use the liqueur, though it’s in the oven long

Blend everything for filling together until well mixed. Pour into sprayed 13-inch by 9-inch pan. Cobbler topping:

enough for at least some of the alcohol, and probably most, to bake out, substitute 1⁄4 cup water or cranberry juice. When we were kids, mom had us kids pick through the berries and remove “tails” and foreign bits of whatever that might be in the bag. That was in the dark ages! Now cranberries are so well processed that all you have to do is wash them.

Mix together everything but nuts. Sprinkle nuts on top and push them in a bit. Bake uncovered until berries have absorbed most of the liquid and most have popped, about 45 minutes. Can be done ahead. Great served warm, room temperature or chilled.

Churches accepting shoeboxes for needy

With holiday supplies already covering the store shelves, individuals, families, churches and groups are working to make Christmas a reality for needy kids around the world by filling shoeboxes with toys, school supplies, hygiene items and notes of encouragement. Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, is ramping up as residents prepare to collect 38,900 gift-filled shoeboxes during National Collection Week through Nov. 25. At local collection sites, anyone can drop off a gift-filled shoebox to send to a child overseas. Then using whatever means necessary – trucks, trains, boats, bikes and even elephants – the shoebox gifts will be delivered to children

worldwide. For many children, the shoebox gift will be the first gift they have ever received. Though the shoebox gifts will often travel thousands of miles, Operation Christmas Child offers a way for participants to follow their box by using the donation form found at Donors will receive an email telling the country where their shoeboxes are delivered. For more information on how to participate in Operation Christmas Child, call 1-937-374-0761 or visit Collection sites in Northern Kentucky are: First Baptist Church, 254 Washington Ave., Bellevue.

Thermometers make great gifts Food and kitchen thermometers make great gifts. Whether treating yourself this holiday season or giving to others consider sharing the gift of food safety by giving a kitchen thermometer or two. There Diane are differMason ent types EXTENSION of therNOTES mometers that are useful in the kitchen. Those that go in the refrigerator and freezer help ensure food is kept at a safe temperature during storage. Many of these hang from the shelf in the appliance. Refrigerators should be kept at 40 degrees or below and freezers should be kept at zero degrees or below. Oven thermometers are used to check the accuracy of the oven temperature. These thermometers can be placed in the oven, left for a period of time, and then checked. If the temperature is significantly different than what you had selected your oven will need to be calibrated. Using a food thermometer when cooking is the only reliable way to ensure food is cooked to a safe temperature. Cooking meat, poultry, fish, and egg products to the safe minimum internal temperatures will destroy any harmful microorganisms. There are several

types and styles of food thermometers. You’ll find digital, dial, singleuse, and pop-up timers. Some are designed to check the temperature of a food by being inserted and removed. Others can be safely left in the food during the roasting or baking process. Before using any thermometer read the manufacturer’s instructions. Additionally, ensure the range of the thermometer is appropriate for the food being prepared. Some thermometers won’t go high enough for frying or candy making. Others won’t measure low enough temperatures for specialty foods.

Most thermometers are accurate to within 2-4 degrees. However, the reading will only be accurate if the thermometer is inserted into the correct portion of the food and properly used. In general, the food thermometer should be placed in the thickest part of the food avoiding the bone, gristle and fat.

Is It the Fountain of Youth for Aging Minds?

PHOENIX, ARIZONA — If Pharmacist of the Year, Dr. Gene Steiner, had a nickel for every time someone leaned over the counter and whispered, “Do you have anything that can improve my memory,” he would be a rich man today. It’s a question he’s heard countless times in his 45-year career. He has seen families torn apart by the anguish of memory loss and mental decline, a silent condition that threatens the independent lifestyle that seniors hold so dearly.

NKU trustees OK new plan Gannett News Service

Northern Kentucky University regents last week approved a strategic plan that will take NKU up to its 50th anniversary in 2018. The plan doesn’t mention a capital campaign. But it’s likely to lead to a new campaign of tens of millions of dollars, because it calls for “a culture of philanthropy and stewardship among alumni, faculty, staff and students.” The plan targets “transdisciplinary approaches” that can link

academic programs. One current example is NKU’s Law and Informatics Institute. It calls for NKU to link with employers and reward departments for programs that span traditional academic silos. Among the other goals: » Expand residential options on campus. » Offer more on-campus jobs to students. » Expand recruiting efforts outside traditional markets. » Offer more dualcredit programs for high school students.
