be said about having at least one scrapbook page with somebody’s picture and their handwriting on it - that’s something to pass down,” she said. Scrappers who come to the event, also known as a “crop,” will get a chance to meet the children they’re helping out - they’ll be helping crafters unload and reload their vehicles and helping serve breakfast and lunch as well.
Group holds Valentine’s dance for police officers Regan Coomer firstname.lastname@example.org
Celebrate Valentine’s Day early at the annual Independence Citizen’s Police Academy Alumni Association February dance. The Valentine’s Dance, to be held Feb. 5, will include a catered dinner, raffles and music. Proceeds will benefit the Independence Police Department. Alumni Association Secretary Kelly Cioffe said the dance allows her organization to provide needed materials for the city’s police
department, including bulletproof vests, tasers and rifles. “We support the police department by funding any equipment they need they they don’t receive a grant for,” Cioffe explained. Independence Police Captain Tony Lucas said the alumni association also funds each year’s Independence Citizens Police Academy, something that is invaluable to the department. “It’s one of the greatest things a police department could ever do,” he said. “It’s all about the partnership that you build with
the community, not only with the residents, but also the business owners.” The citizens’ police academy has allowed residents and officers to meet in a relaxed setting rather than at an accident or when they’ve been pulled over. “They truly become friends. That’s the biggest thing I can say about it. There are graduates now that go camping with the officers,” he said. While the dance supports a good cause, Cioffe said, it’s also just a fun night.
“It’s kind of cool they’re willing to work to go and work,” Kitchen laughed. Nicholson Church Children’s Director Mary Teegarden said the mission trip will help instill a philanthropic nature in the kids. “I really feel like it’s important for the kids to get a feel of having a servant’s heart, which is counter to what the normal culture is today,” she said.
Tickets are still available for the Independence Citizen's Police Academy Alumni Association Valentine's Dance. The dance will be held from 7 a.m. to midnight Saturday, Feb. 5, at the St. Cecilia Church undercroft. Tickets are $20 per person prior to the event and at the door. The dance will include a catered dinner, beer and refreshments and music. Table reservations are available for parties of four or more. For more information or to purchase tickets, call Kelly Cioffe at 609-2151 or Randi Gerig at 2821985. “The music is great, the food is good and it’s got a great atmosphere,” she said. “It’s a great time for adults to get out and eliminate some of that cabin fever.”
Arlinghaus prepared to overturn smoking ban Regan Coomer email@example.com
Should the Campbell County Fiscal Court vote to rescind its smoking ban in public places Feb. 16, Kenton County officials could soon do the same. The first reading of Campbell County’s repeal ordinance was Jan. 19. A second reading will take place mid-February in the county administration building in Newport.
At Kenton County's fiscal court’s meeting Jan. 25, Kenton County Judge-executive Steve Arlinghaus said that if Campbell County revokes the ban, a first reading repealing Kenton County's smoking ban will be on the agenda of the next regular meeting. The former fiscal court passed a compromise ban ordinance in December that exempted private clubs and 18-and-over establishments from smoking ban compliance.
“We will follow suit. It's important that all three counties, regardless of position, have the same policy in place,” Arlinghaus said. Arlinghaus said the fiscal court will invite public comment if the smoking ban is considered by commissioners. However, it’s possible Arlinghaus will face a tie vote on the fate of the smoking ban: only Commissioner Beth Sewell said she would be in favor of repealing the ban,

explaining that it only makes “sense” to do so if Campbell County votes to overturn the ban. “I think it does put us at a disadvantage economically,” she said. Commissioners Jon Draud and Kris Knochelmann both used the word “comfortable” in regards to the smoking ban in place in Kenton County. “I have no problem with Kenton County being a leader,” Knochelmann said.

Duke to install new lines Jason Brubaker firstname.lastname@example.org
Duke Energy is set to begin a project around the Sherbourne subdivision that will allow the Eastern Kentucky Power Cooperative to have a tap-in to their system, thereby strengthening both systems. Rob Hall of Duke Energy spoke at a special meeting of the Erlanger city council on Jan. 18 about the project, saying they plan to begin within the next month. He said the project would involve the laying of more
lines in the ground, and would require some landscaping work upon completion. Once installed, the new lines will begin on Webster Road, cross over Richardson Road, then split and run up both sides of the nearby hill, cross over Sherbourne Drive and go down the backside of the hill. No timetable has been given for the duration of the project. “We’ll do our best to minimize the distractions throughout the process, and hopefully it will be something we can get done as

quickly as possible,” Hall said. “It will be a real benefit to both companies and the customers to get this completed.” Although the project is Duke’s, Mayor Tom Rouse said the city has been in constant contact with Duke officials about it. “They’ve been very good about keeping us in the loop even though they’ve not been required to,” he said. “So we think this will end up being a positive for the city, and we look forward to it being done.” The next regularly scheduled meeting of the Erlanger city council will be Feb. 1 at 7 p.m.

For the past four years, self-described “networking queen” Debbie Christy McCurry has helped women connect with other women in the workforce. While it started by accident (McCurry hosted a small get-together for business women that turned into 30 people packed in a small room), McCurry’s Women’s Idea Network (WIN) now operates five chapters in Greater Cincinnati, including the Northern Kentucky chapter, which was founded last year. “I really love helping people. With all the people I’ve connected all these years, I don’t get a commission or a paycheck,” McCurry said. “It’s truly just a good feeling that I’ve done
something nice for somebody else."’ W I N members meet monthly to learn McCurry how to “network with heart,” McCurry said. “It’s a soft approach to networking,” she explained. “Women connect with just other women - they speak the same language and connect on a different level than they do with a mixed group.” At the luncheon meetings, women are separated into different tables and given two minutes to talk about themselves and their business. Then the women discuss that month’s theme. Midway through lunch, women
switch tables and the process starts again, McCurry said. About half of WIN’s 150 members are either business owners or an employee at a business, McCurry said. “WIN is a special group of ladies. They are respectful, they are helpful and they genuinely care,” she said. Women shouldn’t be leery to join WIN if they’re unemployed at the moment or not the CEO of a company, McCurry said. “We welcome you whatever age you are and whatever career you’re in. We don’t discriminate in any way.” Northern Kentucky WIN Chapter member Libby Hodapp called WIN a “fabulous networking opportunity.” “You’re killing eight birds with one stone every time

Villa Hills weighs part-time clerk option Jason Brubaker
expected at the Feb. 16 meeting, although it may have been amended by that point to include more details about the position. “With the commission, it’s going to take a little while to get someone in place,” said Martin, who will work with the commission to establish some guidelines and standards for the candidates. “So it’s important that we start this process as soon as possible.”
Justice Wil Schroeder swears in the new Villa Hills city council and Mayor Mike Martin at their Jan. 19 meeting. (L-R) George Bruns, Greg Kilburn, Scott Ringo, Mike Martin, Tim Sogar, Mike Pope and James Noll. would work 6-8 hours per week. He estimated the moves would save the city around $30,000 each year. Neither position would be eligible for benefits. “It would work out well, because we find a way to save money without cutting a position,” he said. However, a few council members expressed concern with the wording of Martin’s ordinance, and said
they’d like to explore more possibilities. “We’ve had a lot of instability at that position over the last couple years, and I just don’t know that bringing in a part-time person is the solution,” said Scott Ringo. “I just don’t see the parameters set in this ordinance that I’d like to see, and I’m just not comfortable with it right now.” However, despite the
concerns, the council agreed to a first reading of the ordinance in order to allow the civil service commission to begin their work. A second reading of the ordinance is

The city of Villa Hills is looking to fill the vacant city clerk position, although it remains undecided if it will be a full or part-time position. At their Jan. 19 meeting, the city council heard a first reading of an ordinance that allows the city’s civil service commission to move forward with advertising the position and looking for candidates. However, Mayor Mike Martin and the council still are in the process of determining whether that position, vacant since Polly Richardson left late last year, should be filled by a part-time person or a fulltime person. Currently, assistant city clerk Kim Robbins and Sue Bree, the administrative assistant for the police department, are handling the primary duties of the clerk’s office. Martin presented a proposal to council that called for the position to be parttime, as well as the hiring of a part-time treasurer, who

St. Anthony touts tech
By Regan Coomer firstname.lastname@example.org
St. Anthony School in Taylor Mill now has an interactive white board in every classroom. The recent addition of four Polyvision “eno” interactive white boards was made possible by an anonymous donation to the Alliance for Catholic Urban Education (ACUE), which supports six urban schools in the Diocese of Covington, including St. Anthony. “We’re hoping it will get kids
more involved in their lessons,” St. Anthony Principal Veronica Schweitzer said. “It will allow the students to come up and participate more actively.” This brings the school’s total to seven, including three pre-existing SMART Boards. The grant also provided for the purchase of four projectors and four laptops to be used in concert with the eno boards. Parents will get a chance to see the interactive white boards in action at the upcoming open house at 10 a.m. Jan. 30.
“You have to find novel ways to hook and engage kids,” said Carole Talbert, St. Anthony’s Media Center Specialist. “If you can’t do that, you lose them.” Talbert said St. Anthony’s teachers use the interactive white boards for every subject from math to art. “They’re a good way to keep students focused,” she said. Seventh-grade student Adam Hellmann summed up the allure of interactive white boards: “They’re not boring so you don’t fall asleep,” he laughed.
St. Anthony seventh grader Adam Hellmann uses the interactive white board in the school's Media Center. Thanks to an anonymous grant, The Alliance for Catholic Urban Education was able to buy each of its member schools, including St. Anthony, four cue boards and four laptops.

Two years ago, a handful of high school students in the Kenton County School District became reading coaches to elementary students. Today, 760 high school students are certified One-to-One Reading Coaches or Shining Star Mentors to one in six students in district elementary schools. Called Hanner’s Heroes after Kenton County School District Superintendent Tim Hanner, the group of high school students work with their elementary buddies each week to improve their reading or provide support in whatever way a particular student needs. It’s Hanner’s goal to make sure every elementary student has a mentor or reading coach, if needed. “I think every student can benefit from a well-meaning high school student in their lives each week,” he told Scott High School’s Hanner’s Heroes Jan. 19.
Hanner and other central office administrators meet with each high school monthly to discuss successes and barriers to progress. “I want to hear from you, so come in and be ready to share,” Hanner told students. Scott High School junior Rachael Moser is a first-time Oneto-One Reading Coach. “I needed help in elementary school and now I’m in all AP classes and I know she can do it too,” Moser said. While it takes a while to build a relationship with a young student, Moser said, she can already tell the one hour a week is making a difference. “It makes me feel like I’m doing my job right and I’m really going to make an impact on her,” she said. Scott junior Anthony Rinken is a Shining Star Mentor who wants to make sure his student gets all the help he needs to succeed. “I want to genuinely make this kid go from elementary school to an A student. I want him to be on the honor roll.”

Pioneers pin hopes on travel experiences By Scott Springer
It should come as a surprise to no one in Northern Kentucky wrestling circles that Simon Kenton High School has a state wrestling title contender with a familiar last name. Much like the mid-90s TV show “Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper,” the Pioneers have been doing just that in recent years. From 20012006, a Cooper from Simon Kenton has brought home the state hardware. Brad (‘01,’02,’03), Craig (‘02), and Neil (‘05) are brothers. Kyle (‘04) and Austin (‘06) are cousins of Brad, Craig and Neil. Rounding out the family circle, current 135-pound sophomore Kevin is the little brother of Brad, Craig and Neil and the cousin of
Kyle and Austin. Got it? Needless to say, anyone named “Cooper” is warmly welcomed to coach Nathan Gilbert’s Simon Kenton wrestling mat. He’s even brought one back as an assistant coach. Brad Cooper now gets to witness his brother performing some of the same moves he used to. Fortunately, it’s a helpful relationship and not an awkward one. “Brad’s pretty cool-headed,” Gilbert said. “He and Kevin get along real well. He’s been there. He’s a three-time state champ, and his first time winning it was as a sophomore. That’s what Kevin’s shooting for now. He knows Brad has been there and done that.” Plus, you just can’t beat a healthy sibling rivalry or knock good bloodlines.
Simon Kenton’s Kevin Cooper rolls over Scott High School Stehen Supe during their 130-pound weight class match Feb. 13, 2010, at Simon Kenton in the Region Six Kentucky wrestling tournament.
“He teaches him everything from moves, to what to do in a match, to practice, to how to cut weight and things like that,” said Gilbert. The lessons must be invaluable. Not for just Kevin, but for all of the SK wrestlers who benefit from having a Cooper in the room. “Brad’s in the room almost every day coaching,” Gilbert said. “Neil’s in the room (recent Louisville engineering grad) three days a week. (Cousin) Kyle coaches the Twenhofel Middle School program. Then two (Coopers) are still at U of L and another’s an engineer in Cincinnati.” While the Coopers have certainly grabbed their share of wrestling ink, another Pioneer is the spiritual leader of the team. At 140 pounds, senior Cody Herald has upped his game after narrowly missing state glory last season. Herald’s been ranked as high as fourth in Kentucky. “He’s a senior, and he’s really come into his own this year,” Gilbert said. “He just came with a new level of training and working. He was so close last year, so now he’s got to push as hard as he can. He’s come along and done well. He placed in some real big tournaments up in Dayton (OH) and in Tennessee.” Gilbert attributes Simon Kenton’s drive and determination during this grueling season to Herald. “I’ve been coaching tennis and wrestling both for

I’ve never seen a team want something this bad,” Gilbert said. “Every kid on the team is dedicated. They see the drive in Cody’s eyes. That’s what makes him such an outstanding leader for the team.” Not only are the kids dedicated, but it takes a special parent to have their son at practice at 6 a.m. and then again at 6 p.m. Some relatives have even chipped in and helped with the bus driving for Simon Kenton’s demanding schedule. “One of our wrestler’s granddad goes to every tournament anyway, so he’s willing to drive,” said Gilbert. “One wrestler’s mom drove us last year and
now she drives the bus for our middle school program.” That’s quite a commitment as Gilbert’s wrestlers have probably logged more miles than some commercial truck drivers. The Pioneers have “loaded up the wagons” for Oldham County, Wilmington (OH), VandaliaButler and Franklin (OH), Tates Creek in Lexington, Science Hill, Tennessee, New Richmond (OH), Western Brown (OH), and have trips to Parkersburg, West Virginia and Athens (OH) left on the menu. Then there’s that tournament in Frankfort looming Feb. 16. “Everything we do before February is practice,”
said Gilbert. “I think we have the hardest and best schedule in the state. The boys are feeling it.” Gilbert hopes the out-ofstate competition leads to some in-state honors when it’s all said and done. “(Kevin) Cooper, who should be a state champ this year, is finishing third in tournaments, like Tennessee (Fandetti-Richardson Brawl),” said Gilbert. “These are some of the best kids in the country. When they come back to Kentucky, all that’s going to pay off.” With nine of 10 state qualifiers back to give it another go, you’d have to think it will.
Tibbs breaks coach’s record at Scott By Adam Turer email@example.com
On Jan. 15, Lauren Tibbs made Scott High School history. The 6’5” senior center broke the school’s career scoring record. To make it even sweeter, the record of 2,485 career points was held by Tibbs’s head coach, Rhonda Klette. The record stood for 29 years, but it became clear early on that Tibbs was determined to make it hers. “It has been pretty exciting to coach a player and person of her caliber,” Klette said. “When she started playing, breaking my record was one of her goals.” Tibbs scored 28 points in a 46-45 victory over Simon Kenton and finished the
game with 2,504 career points. The record was broken in front of a home crowd. “It’s an awesome feeling,” Tibbs said. “I’ve been working for that for a while.” “It’s cool that it was my coach’s record, since she’s coached me to be able to break it.” It has taken a team effort from the Eagles to get Tibbs the record and put themselves in position to contend for a district title. The Eagles are 7-10 overall through Jan. 21 but are two games behind Campbell County in the District 37 rankings. Tibbs could not have reached her milestone without help from her teammates. “I think it’s exciting for
my teammates. They get me the passes. All my teammates have played a big part,” said Tibbs. Said Klette, “Our opponents’ goal is to make someone else beat us. Lauren has been double- and triple-teamed. She has been fighting hard. She’s been a little more aggressive this year. We’ve had other girls step up.” Taylor Jackson has stepped up as the team’s defensive stopper. Jenna Trimpe has provided a spark off the bench. Landon Brefeld has emerged as a reliable point guard. Tibbs has committed to play at Marquette University for the next four years. She is thrilled to have earned a scholarship from a Division I school in
arguably the top college basketball conference. “The whole recruiting experience was incredible,” said Tibbs. “I said at the beginning that if nothing came of it, at least the experience was going to be awesome. All of the coaches and visits were awesome and fortunately it ended with an offer from a great school.” Her teammates also benefitted from the experience of big-time college coaches visiting Scott and scouts attending games. Tibbs brought a spotlight not just upon herself, but upon the Eagles basketball program. “It is exciting for the kids to go through the experience with her, especially for the younger kids to see how hard she works,” said
Scott High School’s Lauren Tibbs, left, blocks a shot by Highlands High School’s Jenna Trimpe during the first half of their girls basketball game in the Kenton County Classic tournament at Scott High School Dec. 21. Klette. “They see what opportunities are out there for them if they put in the work. Lauren has given the whole program a boost.” Tibbs hopes that she inspires future generations of Eagles players. Her work ethic, performance, and
leadership ensure that her impact on the program will be a lasting one. “Leaving a legacy behind is a huge thing for me,” Tibbs said. “I hope that younger girls look up to me and see that hard work does pay off.”

Last week’s question
Do you think political rhetoric caused the deadly shootings in Tucson, Ariz.? Why or why not? “The shootings in Tucson were caused by a mentally ill young man with a gun and too many bullets. “While I think that the Tea Party rhetoric and other political extremists fill the airwaves and Internet with outrageous ideas that could make an impression on someone with no critical thinking skills, I blame the gun laws in this country. “No way should that young man have had a gun in his possession, let alone the ability to fire so many shots from it. “Let's spend our time changing the gun laws, collecting the guns, melting them and creating new American sculpture, not more gravesites.” E.E.C. “Absolutely not! What caused the shootings to occur was the warped pysche of the kid that pulled the trigger, his very own actions. “When we as Americans start blaming everything that happens on something or someone other than the person responsible, we fall farther down the hill of personal responsibility, integrity and moral ground. “The result, it's harder to climb back up.” Mike in Anderson Township “You used the word ‘caused.’ Since a crime was committed we must consider legal causation. “Without knowing the motivation of the assailant, we really cannot determine what caused him to shoot the victims. If there was a direct legal causation then there would be others who would be directly responsible for the carnage. “So far there is no evidence that there were co-conspirators involved. There could well be a pathological issue for the crimes. If that is the case then it is doubtful that ‘political rhetoric’ would even be a contributing factor. “Any veiled threat of harm in a political venue is out of place. American culture is filled with political assassinations (and assassination attempts.) “Most Americans are ignorant of the fact that we have had four sitting presidents killed (Garfield, McKinley, Lincoln and Kennedy) while in office. More than another half dozen (Reagan, Truman, T. Roosevelt, F. Roosevelt, Nixon and Ford) were the targets of attempted

assassinations. Gov. George Wallace was shot in a political setting. “This amount of extreme behavior has only been displayed in the United States. If you do not know history it is bound to be repeated, which it has been repeatedly. “It is just more ignorance in action.” J.S.D. “Do I think that political rhetoric caused the shootings in Tucson? Absolutely not. “From the available data broadcast by responsible media outlets, it is clear that the shooter was a wack-job. If you saw his video of the inside of his community college, and listened to his comments as he was walking through the school, and read the item about his social networking nonsense (including his image in a red thong), you would know that he is a nut. “We cannot protect ourselves from dingbats like him unless we identify them, and neutralize them, and that's not likely to happen in today's atmosphere. “When the Left started to indict conservative rhetoric for what happened they conveniently ignored a lot of the same (and worse) kind of talk from their own. “There isn't enough space to list specific examples, but they are easily found on the Internet.” Bill B. “I don't think so, this was a time bomb ready to explode regardless of the political target. Unfortunately, innocent people were victims of this ill-fated act.” O.H.R. “Oh puhleeze! In 1984 a man walked into a McDonald's restaurant in San Diego. He murdered 21 people and wounded 19 before the SWAT Team killed him. “While the Tucson man did actually target the Congresswoman, to say he did it in response to political rhetoric does not explain the murdering of several others including the little girl. “We have two incidents occurring 26 years apart that only prove crazy people haven't changed, but those placing blame have changed – for the worse.” R.V.
We need to curb hidden federal rules that raise costs Every day, Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky families pay hidden costs of unfunded federal requirements, referred to as “mandates.” Here’s how it typically works. Years ago, Congress delegated some of its authority (and our voices) to unelected federal agencies. Federal agencies, which in most cases are just doing their jobs, issue regulations which require local service providers to spend more to comply. We then fund federal mandates through fee payments, often without knowing all the reasons why we pay what we pay. Unfortunately, federal regulations increase the cost of things we cannot afford to do without, such as water, sewer and power. They hit working families the hardest because they affect all rate payers, regardless of income. Our local utilities have no choice but to comply. Unfunded federal mandates for sewer and water in Northern Kentucky alone are estimated to cost over a billion dollars in the next decade – more than $10,000 per family. A recent water mandate highlights the problem. A federal agency decided that water providers in the nation need to reduce a by-product in their systems. The new mandate expands an old mandate to all testing sites within our extensive local water system. The federal agency estimated the rule would cost 72 million dollars annually for the country. However well-intended, they seem to have missed the mark.
Compliance costs for Northern Kentucky alone will eventually exceed 85 million dollars. Although it will be paid out over a period of Rob Hudson years, that’s an added cost of Community over $1,000 for Recorder every local guest ratepayer. To support columnist the new rule, the agency found that the health benefits would be uncertain. Based on the federal government’s statistics, the new rule won’t prevent a single annual death in Northern Kentucky. Nearly forty years after the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1972, the EPA has announced several new initiatives. There is no end in sight. This is a tough issue because the thought of drinking unsafe water terrifies us. We shouldn’t question the good faith of those who view these regulations as public protection. But we should be thinking about whether we can afford to pay for more regulations. We assess risks, costs and benefits because they are part of life, and we try to be reasonable about it. I know this is true because we keep driving every chance we get, even though we have serious motor vehicle accidents in our region about every day. Let’s face it – most regulations are so complex that only experts understand them. In response,
Congressman Davis’s REINS Act is finally getting the attention it deserves. The REINS Act would require Congressional approval of all new regulations before significant costs can be imposed. With the REINS Act, at least Congress would have to pass judgment on future regulations, and they might stop a few of the bad ones. Without change, a perfect storm will blow in on local ratepayers. We’re paying for aging infrastructure replacement and federal mandates, at the same time, in a down economy. The utility providers have direct mandates, but other federal energy and chemical mandates force their general costs to rise further. About 10 percent of the recent water rate increase covered a mere down-payment on a single new mandate. Some people are taking the approach of trying to vilify local agencies, partly because they’re the easy targets who mail out the utility bills. People challenge them over peanuts while a billion dollars of federal mandates remain unchecked. We should support Congressman Davis’s efforts and tackle the problem’s root cause. A chorus of intelligent voices, singing the same tune about costly federal mandates, would be better than having noisy local squabbles.

Proposed meth lab bill is Ky. government overkill While the Kentucky Senate did pass meaningful legislation dealing with school choice, tax reform and state sovereignty during the first week of this year’s General Assembly session, there was still too much of business-as-usual activity in Frankfort. There’s no better example of this than a bill filed by Rep. Linda Belcher, D-Shepherdsville, which mirrors similar legislation filed by Sen. Tom Jensen, R-London, requiring prescriptions for cold medicines simply because some have ingredients used to make methamphetamine. Such sensational bills allows politicians to feign doing something meaningful while avoiding real action on tough issues such as the state’s $31 billion unfunded pension liability. But let’s face it – dealing with
complex and politically difficult pension issues doesn’t garner near as many warm fuzzies as, say, fighting a politically correct and popular, if losing, drug war. Meth is a big problem in Kentucky. In 2009, the commonwealth ranked third in the nation in the rate of meth-lab incidents behind Missouri and Indiana. More than 1,000 meth labs and dumpsites were found in 2010 and more than 4,000 have been discovered since 2000. It’s also dangerous, involving combustible ingredients that explode and destroy. These statistics and incidents get the lion’s share of attention. But what often goes unreported is the fact that most of the methmaking operations involve a relatively small number of people in concentrated areas.
The U.S. Department of Justice reports that nearly half of methmaking operations in Kentucky were concentrated in six counties while 14 counties accounted for more than 70 percent of reported sites. In fact, 44 counties reported no meth activity at all. Yet, Belcher wants to force all law-abiding citizens to ante up not only the money for a prescription, but a trip to the doctor’s office too – just to get a simple, useful and effective cold medicine. It’s not the first time that Kentucky has tried to legislate a solution to the meth problem. During the past decade, several laws and regulations have been enacted to deal with anhydrous ammonia, also a key meth ingredient. “We made that difficult to get – and that was going to stop the
manufacture of meth in Kentucky,” said Rep. Bill Farmer, RLexington, on a recent “Kentucky Tonight” show on the issue. “Well, it didn’t work.” Farmer also pointed out that past attempts to deal with other drug-making activity didn’t work either. When OxyContin became more difficult to get, there were pain clinics popping up all over the state. If Belcher’s bill passes, expect allergy “clinics” to suddenly appear – involving more individuals in the illegal drug trade and making addicted criminals more dangerous as they become increasingly determined to do whatever it takes to access ingredients. Belcher’s proposal is a perfect example of government overkill that not only fails to effectively
address the problem, but can make it worse. Making these prescription-only drugs Jim Waters would prohibit Community law-enforceRecorder ment from using guest the current tracking system, columnist which blocked sales of 10,000 grams of meth ingredients each month. Meth is certainly addictive and dangerous. But sometimes I wonder if we don’t have the equivalent in lawmaking – politicians addicted to the idea that government can control every single thing. That could be dangerous, too. Jim Waters is vice president of policy and communications for the Bluegrass Institute.

Jacob Violand, 9, of Fort Thomas, shops for animal treats, food and toys at a store the week after Christmas.
Nine-year-old Fort Thomas boy gives Christmas money to shelter As the holiday season tailed off, 9-year-old Fort Thomas resident Jacob Violand came up with a “pawfect” way to spend Christmas money given to him by donating it to a nokill animal shelter. Violand donated $85 and four bags of items he purchased at a pet store including food, toys and treats with a $50 gift card to the The Pet Castle Animal Rescue in Florence the week after Christmas. “There wasn’t anything that I really wanted to buy, and I just love animals,” he said. Violand said he plans to donate money to help animals at least a few more times. “It really makes me feel good about myself, and I think I made a difference,” he said. The family has a yellow Labrador retriever, two cats, and a guinea pig, and all of them are from rescues, said Jacob’s mother Ellen Violand. Jacob talks about wanting to become a veterinari-
an, and he’s always asking to bring another one home, but they have enough, she said. He wasn’t prompted to donate the money, but his decision brought proud tears to her eyes, Ellen said. “I’m just absolutely blown away that he came up with this on his own and just completely proud of him,” she said Ellen said she even asked Jacob if he wanted to keep a small portion of the money for himself, and he declined, and said he wanted it all to go to animals. After talking it over, they decided to search for a nokill shelter, and when they took the money and four bags of donations to the Pet Castle, the staff talked to Jacob about how it will help prevent animals from being euthanized, she said. “I think because he’s always grown up with animals in our house that he’s just very attached to animals,” she said. He has a lot of compassion to animals, and he just wanted to help out.”

Capt. Eli Ward couldn’t hold back his smile as he addressed the audience at the Villa Hills council meeting on Jan. 19. Capt. Eli Ward, Jennifer Ward, 1st Sgt. Jonathan Brown and Sgt. 1st Class Allen Manley visited St. Joseph School on Jan. 21. The three soldiers represented the 1/320th FAR, which has been adopted by Villa Hills, Crescent Springs, Lakeside Park and Erlanger. “We had some guys on outpost in Afghanistan on Christmas Day and that’s a pretty lonely feeling,” recalled Ward, the rear detachment commander of the 1/320th Field Artillery Regiment. “But some of the troops back in camp managed to gather up some of those care packages you all sent, and get them out to them that day. It made their day to know that the people here in Northern Kentucky were thinking of them, and words can’t express how much that helps a soldier.” Ward and his wife Jennifer, along with 1st Sgt. Jonathan Brown and Sgt. 1st Class Allen Manley visited the Northern Kentucky area in mid-January, thanking the residents for their support during their multiple overseas deployments. Batteries of the 1/320th FAR have been adopted by Villa Hills, Crescent Springs, Lakeside Park and Erlanger, with each city sending care packages, letters and cards to the soldiers regularly. “It’s been enjoyable to come here and be welcomed with open arms,” said Manley, who along with Brown received a Purple Heart after being wounded in Afghanistan. “To receive the support we’ve gotten is awesome.” While wintry weather altered some of their plans while in the area, the soldiers managed to still visit a several businesses and schools, enjoyed a couple meals at Pee Wee’s Restaurant and Gold Star Chili, and collected a

It’s understandable to doubt God’s love in our hard times Does he or doesn’t he? Does God really love us? Love me? We’re told in the scriptures that he does. And sometimes we think so, and sometimes we wonder. Our problem is we’re confused about all the aspects of real love and how they’re expressed. In our understanding of love, it’s not a “many splendored thing,” but rather specific. It’s always romantic, sensual, accompanied by music, roses, and dinners on the town. Hearing that God loves us leads us to expect we’ll soon be living on Easy Street. Televangelists imply that God will heal all sicknesses, give us twice as much money as we donate to them, and take all the problems out of our lives. Many a person’s spiritual life is made worse by this kind of thinking – that God’s love always goes easy on us.
Actually his grace wants to gradually transform us. A sculptor, operating on our premise, could never strike the Father Lou blows which out a Guntzelman bring beautiful statue Perspectives from a cold block of marble. The marble could complain the sculptor is being too uncaring and harsh – not knowing the final figure he has in mind. Parents, believing only in love’s comfortableness would: not have their child inoculated because it brings tears; enrolled in school because of homesickness; expect chores at home in order to earn money for video games. Good parents may seem harsh at times to their children. Their
genuine love for their child’s growth and well-being is only appreciated later on. God’s love is expressed in many ways. It can be playful, sacrificial, formative, giving, passionate, as well as demanding. Love is not meant only for stroking egos but for forming them. We accept the medicine because we trust in the love of the one who administers it. Why is it, then, when we look for signs of God’s love we expect them to always make us more comfortable? Sometimes they do. At other times they call forth more from us. They chip off pieces of our ego. An insightful prayer says: “I asked God to take away my sickness and give me health, but he permitted my illness to continue longer so I could learn compassion; I prayed for a better paying
job, and instead he gave me an appreciation for the one I have now; I prayed to be loved more intensely, and he taught me how to love others more.” It takes a long time and a lot of spiritual maturity to learn how to trust in a love that doesn’t always give us what we want. So human-like, St. Teresa of Avila chided God about this once: “No wonder you have such few friends, treating them the way you do.” There are always doubts and ambiguity about what God allows in our lives. “Why this? Why that?” we ask. Every adverse thing that happens we consider a disaster, a permitted evil, and a sign of an unloving God. Professor Belden Lane of St. Louis University, sees it differently. In his book, “The Solace of Fierce Landscapes,” he states his approach to the perceived evils in
his life: “I wouldn’t be satisfied with answers to the problem of evil if I had them. “What I desire most of all is the assurance of God’s love… that won’t let go. In struggling with God, none of us minds losing so long as we know ourselves to be loved.” Like a child lacking insight, we all struggle with God occasionally about what’s good for us and what’s not. We accuse God of being uncaring when he allows us to be roughed up by life at times. We think we know what’s best for us. Sometimes we do. But only perfect love knows perfectly. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@ communitypress.com or P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242.

It’s a free-for-all: dairy-free, gluten-free dishes I have been getting requests for dairy-free baked goods, and also other requests relating to gluten free substitutions for flour. So today I’m sharing some easy recipes that allow those on restricted diets to enjoy some “lovin’ from the oven.”
Dairy-free dinner rolls
These rolls are dairyfree, cholesterol-free and low-fat. Don’t be squeamish about the ingredients here. Powdered creamer is used by more than a few bakers to achieve a nice-tasting, dairy-free dinner roll. They taste as good as they look. The diabetic exchange is 11⁄2 starch, 1⁄2 fat for each roll. You can do this by hand or machine. 1 tablespoon rapid rise yeast plus a couple pinches sugar 21⁄4 cups warm water (110-115 degrees) 1 ⁄3 cup sugar 1 ⁄3 shortening 1 ⁄4 cup powdered nondairy creamer
21⁄4 teaspoons salt 5 - 6 cups bread flour
Preheat oven Rita 3 5 to0 Heikenfeld d e g r e e s . Rita’s kitchen D i s s o l v e yeast and pinches of sugar in warm water. In a mixing bowl, add sugar, shortening, creamer, salt and 5 cups flour. Add yeast and mix well on low speed. Turn to medium and beat until smooth. Add more flour if necessary to make a soft but sticky dough. Either knead it for six to eight minutes by machine or by hand. If doing by hand, turn out on floured surface. Knead until smooth, like a baby’s bottom. Place in bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat top. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch down and turn out onto lightly floured sur-
fluffy. Add tofu and vanilla; beat for a minute. Mix flours, soda, salt and cinnamon together. Add to creamed mixture and mix lightly until blended. Fold in chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake eight to 10 minutes. Don’t overbake.
Dairy-free rolls are easy to make. face; divide into 18 to 24 pieces. Shape each piece into a roll. Place 2 inches apart on sprayed baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, 30 to 45 minutes. Bake for 12 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
These chocolate chip cookies are dairy-free and cholesterol free. OK, this has tofu in it but again, try it. You may surprise yourself. From Marian, who loves chocolate chip cookies with a healthy twist.

1 cup unsalted margarine 1 cup unrefined cane sugar 2 tablespoons light molasses 1 ⁄4 cup light, firm tofu, puréed 1 teaspoon vanilla 13⁄4 cups unbleached flour 1 ⁄4 cup whole wheat flour 1 ⁄2 teaspoon baking soda 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon (opt.) 12 oz. chocolate chips Preheat oven to 350. Beat margarine, sugar and molasses until light and
Gluten-free flour mix
Store this in airtight jar and you’ll have plenty n hand when you need it. Use in place of flour for breading chops, coating meat or to thicken gravy and soup.
2 cups white rice flour 2 ⁄3 cup potato starch flour 1 ⁄3 cup tapioca flour
Easy lasagna for two
Carol Williams (no, not the Channel 9 news anchor), an Eastside reader needs recipes for two. So if you have some to share, please do. “We’re empty nesters and I have too many leftovers,” she said.
1 cup ricotta cheese 1 ⁄2 cup Parmesan 1 egg 14 oz. pasta sauce with meat 4 no-cook lasagna noodles 11⁄3 cups Mozzarella Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine ricotta, Parmesan and egg. Set aside. Spread 1⁄3 cup sauce in bottom of spayed loaf pan. Top with one noodle. Spread 1 ⁄3 cup sauce to edges. Top with 1⁄3 reserved cheese mixture and 1⁄3 cup Mozzarella. Repeat layers twice, topping with remaining noodle and sauce. Bake, covered, 25 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with rest of Mozzarella. Bake about 10 minutes more. Let sit 10 minutes before cutting. Tips from Rita’s kitchen: Use regular lasagna noodles and boil just until tender, but not all the way done. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.

located outside of buildings. It includes smart grid technology, fiber optic systems, Power Line Carriers and cellular technology, as well as wireless systems and copper cable systems. A smart grid is an electricity network that uses digital technology to deliver power from suppliers to consumers via two-way digital communications. The technology saves energy, reduces costs and increases reliability and transparency. Students were required to build a smart grid system made of 10 kilometers of fiber optic cable with connectors and splices to mirror workplace conditions. The students then had to use meters to troubleshoot faults set up by the instructor. The outside plant technician certification course is an outgrowth of Gateway’s lineman-training program funded by a Department of Labor grant. “The smart grid installed
in our area enabled us to develop a new worker classification called the Outside Plant Technician, increasing the value we offer students and employers,” Collins said. “Support from our industry partners, including the Gateway Energy Committee, the Fiber Optic Associa-
