Local man visits Haiti, continues to give By Regan Coomer

An Independence man helped a medical team treat more than 7,000 people during a three-week stay in Haiti. His only regret? The few the team lost. “There was a little girl who hadn’t eaten or drank for eight days. I fed her a bottle of Pedialyte for 15 minutes. We asked her grandmother to leave her with us overnight, but she said no,” he said. “She said she’d be back the next day. Later that day she walked over an hour to tell us her granddaughter had died.” Despite the adversity he faced in Haiti from Jan. 22 to Feb. 13, David Ingala is proud of the time he spent working as a sometimes nurse and pharmacist at the permanent clinic of Nehemiah Vision Ministries, an international organization focused on transforming the lives of Haitian people through education, health and spiritual development. “We worked 12 hours a day. We worked until dark. It was really intense,” he said frankly. “Every single person that was treated was totally grateful – a lot of people cried.” Ingala, who normally works in the field of genetics, was inspired to volunteer in Haiti after hearing a fellow church member talk about Nehemiah Vision Ministries. Arriving in Haiti was a shock: “It’s worse than what you see on TV. They need lots of help still. My last day in the field we had four people come in with leg and arm fractures,” he said. “It was the four week anniversary of the quake and they had still not been treated. They were swollen beyond belief. Can you imagine if you had a broken arm or leg and you waited four weeks?” Besides the permanent clinic,

Ingala, who normally does clinical molecular genetic testing, helped as a sometimes pharmacist and nurse - passing out medication to the Haitian people and assisting doctors and nurses when needed.

Independence man David Ingala volunteered for three weeks at Nehemiah Vision Ministries’ school-turnedmedical-clinic in Haiti from the end of January to the middle of February. Pictured is Ingala with two Haitian children in front of a typical home.

Ingala also helped medical professionals on a mobile clinic that traveled around the countryside to different “tent cities,” Ingala said. The clinics opened at 6 a.m. and each day as many as 300 to 600 people would be waiting in line for treatment. “They’re living in a tent made out of bed sheets. All of their hospitals and clinics that did exist were demolished in the earthquake,” he said. And while many of Haiti’s people are destitute, Ingala said their fortitude astonished him. “I’ve never seen a culture that has more self dignity in the face of disaster,” he said. “They’re a great people and they deserve the help.”

Hundreds of people lined up daily, starting at 6 a.m., outside of Nehemiah Vision Ministries’ clinic in Haiti, where Independence man David Ingala volunteered for three weeks.

Going for the gold



While in Haiti, Ingala kept in touch with his nine-year-old son and family via facebook and email. Here’s an excerpt from his message home Feb. 1: “My outlook on food and eating has been totally changed. When almost every child you see asks for food and water, it breaks my heart. I feel guilty for being overweight, having a roof over my head and access to clean drinking water.” Ingala’s time in Haiti not only has changed his outlook, but also his life’s purpose: he plans to visit again in April, this time with his son, and in the future, get sponsorship to work for Haiti full time. “Dream scenario I’d do paperwork or fundraising three weeks

out of the month and spend a week a month in Haiti,” he said. “Just enough to get by, pay my mortgage and support my son. The ultimate main goal is to support the people of Haiti.” Ingala encourages Northern Kentucky to help support Nehemiah Vision Ministries by either making a donation on the ministry’s website at or even traveling to Haiti. “I think people from Haiti would have a heart attack if they saw where we lived,” he said. “What we take for granted as normal they need so much. They can’t provide for themselves on their own right now. They need help.”

Kenton jail move-in date set for Nov. 1 By Regan Coomer

Kenton County officials have set the official “move-in” date for the new Kenton County Detention Center for Nov. 1. The fiscal court asked jail officials to plan for the November date at a caucus Tuesday, Feb. 23. Completion of the facility itself is expected for mid-October, said Kenton County Jailer Terry Carl, though he did say it was possible that it could be later, depending on the construction process. “I think we’re probably being optimistic with Nov. 1, but it’s a date to use,” said Judge-Executive Ralph Drees. “Moving it back

won’t hurt; doing it right is more important.” Carl hopes to start the transition process from the old to new jail about 30 days before the official move-in date, when prisoners will actually be transported to the new facility. “About 30 days out we’re going to go in and do a complete operating of the whole facility,” Carl said. That includes employee training, equipment testing and making sure locks are working and sinks are draining, Carl said. Carl also told the fiscal court he expects to be able to transfer the prisoners to the new jail in just one day, but added that “overtime

is going to be tremendous.” Currently Carl is planning his 2010-2011 budget, which will have to work for both the old and new facilities: the old jail for four months and the new jail for eight months. Carl said planning next year’s budget is a “challenge” because he’s unsure what some things, such as utilities, will cost in the new jail. The what-ifs will have to be figured out by April, when Carl will submit his budget. Also included in the budget will be a salary for a “transitional chief,” a person who will be in charge of training employees in the new facility. The position will be a permanent one, Carl said, explain-

ing once the switch-over is complete, the transitional person will stay on to train new employees. “They’ve got to perform a certain amount of duties such as training and have knowledge in corrections,” Carl said, adding he has received a few resumes for the position, but will be advertising the position formally later in the year. As for the new detention center’s construction progress, Carl said “it’s going excellent.” The project was delayed very little due to the snow because the roof is almost complete, Carl said. Fifty cells have been completed in Area D and cells should be completed in the intake area in April.

Kenton tea party hosted judge-exec hopeful By Regan Coomer

The Kenton County Tea Party recently held the first of three meet and greets with the candidates for judge-executive, the most important office in the county, members said. “These officials do affect all of our lives,” said Northern Kentucky Tea Party Vice President Duane Skavdahl. “This is an opportunity for the public to meet the candidates in a session where they can ask questions.” The tea party organized three separate days for each candidate to speak to the community. Candidate Dan Moening’s meet n’ greet was held Feb. 24 at Twenhofel Middle School in Independence. Candidates Steve Arlinghaus and Scott Kimmich will have a chance to address the tea party and residents March 11 and 25, respectively, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the middle school. “We’re for small government and fiscal responsibility and it has to start

at the lower branch of the government as well as the top of the chain,” said tea party member Frank Halpin. Halpin said the forums are not just for tea party members, but Moening all of Kenton County. “We encourage everyone to come out and learn who the candidates are and everything they stand for,” he said. Taylor Mill resident Steve Rump was one of the 20 or so attendees to the first meet n’ greet. Rump, who is not a member of the tea party, said all residents should come to the meetings. “It’ll certainly help me make a decision to hear the issues and what they stand for,” said Rump, adding he planned to attend Arlinghaus and Kimmich’s nights as well. “Without a doubt because they’re informative and you’re getting the opportunity to meet the candidates,”

he said. Moening, an Independence resident and assistant manager at the Kenton County Golf Courses, said if elected, he wants to make county business open. “People should have access to their government officials and that has not happened,” he said. Residents at the meeting asked Moening about his take on the tricounty smoking ban, raising taxes and what his priority would be if budget cuts had to be made. “The last thing to get cut would be basic services like police and fire,” he said. Moening said he doesn’t think taxes need to be raised “at the moment” and that he would not support a smoking ban. “That’s not the government’s function. It should be the businesses’ choice,” he said. For more information about The Northern Kentucky Tea Party, visit

Rigging project to begin on Roebling bridge The $16.2 million project to rehabilitate the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge is getting ready to set up operations for the cleaning and painting of the main span and Kentucky approach of the historical landmark.

The painting of the Ohio approach was completed in December 2009. Setup will necessitate closing the bridge to vehicular traffic for two weekends in March before the main project begins in April. Beginning Friday,

March 5, at 9 p.m. the Roebling Bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic until 5 a.m. Monday, March 8. The contractor will begin moving in equipment and rigging containment around the bridge so that they will be ready to remove paint, clean and prime the steel with a fresh shade of blue. The closure will also take place the weekend of March 12 beginning at 9 p.m. until March 15 at 5 a.m. All of the prep work is leading up to Wednesday, April 7. Beginning at 9 a.m. the bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic during the project.

There will be a signed detour using the Clay Wade Bailey Bridge route. Motorists can also use the Taylor Southgate (US 27) bridge, in Newport. For pedestrians, one sidewalk will remain open throughout the project. “A project of this size requires closure to ensure a safe and timely completion,” said Rob Hans, chief engineer for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s northern Kentucky district. “The disruption is needed to preserve this magnificent bridge for generations to come.” The project is scheduled to be complete by Nov. 15.

Kenton officials to meet for talks, ideas at forum By Regan Coomer

An upcoming forum will give Kenton County officials and election candidates a chance to mingle. County Commissioner Kris Knochelmann has been planning the meeting, scheduled for April 24 at Dixie Heights High School, for the last few months with the help of some city officials.

7303 Turfway Road

Knochelmann hopes the forum will allow city and county officials to better communicate. “There are tons of ideas that are maybe only spoken about one to one and are not brought up in a group,” he said. “This is an opportunity to do that.” The event will be hosted by Northern Kentucky Forum, a partnership of the Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement, Vision 2015 and Legacy – three nonpartisan groups that conduct similar public events throughout the year. The government officials event will kick off with eight-minute speeches by

Judge-Executive Ralph Drees, Crestview Hills Mayor Paul Meier, former Fort Wright Mayor Tom Litzler and Salmon P. Chase College of Law Professor Phillip Sparkes. Knochelmann said the speakers will answer the question, “If they were to make a big impact on making city county/government work more efficiently in the county, how would they do it?” Following the talks, the officials will break up into groups of 10 for general discussion, which will be facilitated by The Intercommunity Justice & Peace Center of Cincinnati.

“I think oftentimes we’re all so busy and rushed that we don’t have time to sit down and talk. This allows for that – if nothing else you get a chance to talk, or at the most there are enough ideas and suggestions that allows them to solve a problem in a better way,” Knochelmann said. While all city and county officials and election candidates have been invited to the forum, the event is also open to the community at large, Knochelmann said. “I’d love to see something like this done annually or in a bigger forum. Hopefully everyone gets something out of it,” he

said. Fort Wright City Administrator Gary Huff, who has helped planned the event, said it’s a good thing anytime people get together and “have discussions on the future of where not only Kenton County is going, but also where Northern Kentucky is going,” he said. Independence Mayor Chris Moriconi also helped in the planning of the forum. Moriconi said “effective communication” between the county and cities could “increase our ability to create a more effective government, reduce duplication of services and utilities and save the

Learn to spot horse neglect, abuse signs By Chris Mayhew

In the Bluegrass state where people love horses, lots of people want to have their own. But, organizers of a free Sunday, March 21 Equine Abuse Education course say not everyone is prepared, able or sometimes even willing to do what it takes to properly care for a horse. The course is for anyone across the Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati area concerned about the treatment of horses, said Anna Zinkhon, board member of the Northern Kentucky Horse Network, who owns and operates Misty Ridge Farm in Camp Springs. “We are going to be teaching people how to recognize horse abuse,” Zinkhon said. But, just as important will be instructing people about what is and isn’t abuse, she said. “A horse is perfectly content to be in cold weather, that’s not the problem,” Zinkhon said. “It’s whether they’re being fed enough and treated for an injury.” Zinkhon said it was decided to have the abuse education course in light of the recent issues surrounding the treatment of horses

in Clermont County. Animal control officers in Clermont County found dead and malnourished horses on a farm in Bethel in December. Twelve charges of either cruelty to animals or abandoning animals have been filed against Chad Moore, a horse trainer, of Bethel. Moore’s trial was scheduled to begin March 2 in Clermont County Municipal Court. “There was an issue for many months of trying to get someone to react to that situation,” Zinkhon said. But there have also been smaller-scale cases in Northern Kentucky too, she said. NKHN works directly with animal shelters, animal control officers and horse owners to resolve reported cases of abuse or neglect. “There’s a lot of horses suffering for a lot of reasons,” she said. Horses can be expensive to care for, and some people who bought horses before the economy started getting bad are finding it more difficult to care for them, Zinkhon said. “Nobody’s got money to buy them, and nobody’s got money to feed them,” she said. Getting the word out to

taxpayers money.” Moriconi said there will be no political agendas at the forum. “This is for the betterment of Kenton County and our entire community,” he said. “We’re going in there with an open mind for ideas.”

Spotting horse neglect

A free Equine Abuse Education course for the public will be in the cafeteria at Campbell County High School, 909 Camel Crossing, Alexandria, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 21. The event is sponsored by the Northern Kentucky Horse Network, the Kentucky Horse Council and the University of Kentucky Extension Service. Elsie Rogers, who trains animal control officers how to spot abuse and neglect for the Kentucky Horse Council, will be the featured speaker. For information visit the horse network’s Web site the public about how to care for a horse properly is essential, especially for first time horse owners, said Kenton County Animal Shelter Director Dan Evans. “A lot of people will get a horse and not really know enough of what they need,” Evans said. “Then it ends up in neglect.” Kentucky, being the horse capital of the world, means lots of people want to buy their own horse, Evans said. But, many forget not only how costly horses are, but that they need things like having a farrier come out regularly to care for the horse’s hooves, he said. “It’s a little bit different than just a cat or a dog,” Evans said.

Molly Malone’s Irish Pub in Covington will provide such authentic Irish fare as Irish stew, corned beef and cabbage, and shepherd’s

pie, and traditional Irish beverages such as Killian’s Irish Red, Tullamore Dew, Michael Collins, Jameson, and Feckin will be available. A special Kids Corner, new to the festival this year, will keep children entertained with games, crafts, and face painting. Admission to the races, admission to the festival, and parking are free.

Irish Day at the Races is sponsored by Killian’s Irish Red, Molly Malone’s Irish Pub, and Remke Markets. Irish Day at the Races is the largest of several events presented annually by the Fenians of Northern Kentucky to promote friendship, unity, charity, and civic participation; foster the ideals and perpetuate the history and traditions of the Irish people; and promote Irish culture through the arts and literature, language and genealogy, sports, and foreign exchange programs.

Kids helped kids at festival for Haiti

By Regan Coomer

More than 150 Simon Kenton High School students helped run a Hope 4 Haiti Festival held at the school Wednesday Feb. 24. Parents, students and community members packed the festival, where students ran concession and game booths, sold studentmade Haiti house pins and dressed up as mimes for general entertainment. “We wanted to do something big that would really draw attention to the situation in Haiti,” said Christine Hoerlein, social studies teacher at SK. And big it was; students ran booths with balloon animals, temporary tattoos, ring toss and of course, took advantage of the chance to throw a pie in their

teachers’ faces (the whip cream ran out halfway through the night). Hoerlein said students were shocked to find out about condition some children live through in Haiti without any of the amenities we are used to. “Our idea of poverty is not a realistic idea of poverty for the world,” she said. “That’s really eye opening for them. They’re shocked when they find out people are not living with running water.” Proceeds from the festival went to the Restavek Foundation, which helps to provide food, shelter and education to Haitian children. This nonprofit seemed the best recipient for SK’s festival because “it’s kids helping kids,” Hoerlein said. Parents and teachers also helped out with event, which was

planned in just three weeks. “Once we decided to do this, everyone stepped up to the plate and asked, ‘What can we do to help?’” said French teacher Melissa Echegary, who helped organize the festival. Freshman Elysha Calhoun helped set up the festival, and explained helping out the Restavek Foundation was only the right thing to do. “If something were to happen to us involving an earthquake we would feel the same way,” she said. “I really want to help make it a better place for kids in Haiti.” Calhoun said she was surprised at the festival’s attendance. “It looks like everyone went home and told their families and friends. It really makes me happy to se how many people have come,” she said.

Thirty children are on their way achieving success in kindergarten thanks to a new program launched by the Kenton County School District. The Born Learning Academy is a program that teaches parents and caregivers of children from prenatal to 5 years of age how to turn everyday moments into learning opportunities. The program aims to give these children the tools they need to achieve success when enrolling in school and beyond. The program involves six monthly workshops at Beechgrove Elementary in Independence. It is a collaborative effort between United Way of Greater Cincinnati, Kenton County School District, The Bank of Kentucky and Citi. Currently, 15 families with 22 adults and 30 children are participating in the program, which is being facilitated by Beechgrove's assistant principal Kim Mott and guidance counselor Vickey Martin. Julia Goodman of the Family Resource Center at Beechgrove Elementary has been instrumental in recruiting the families and ensuring they stay committed to the monthly program. The Born Learning Academy came to fruition after Kenton County Superintendent Tim Hanner was inspired by the Harlem Children's Zone Project, which strives to surround children with support as early as possible and provide learning experiences throughout the day. “It's important we give children in our community the best tools available so they're ready to learn when they make it to school,” says Hanner. “I thought if we reached out to Kenton County's expectant mothers and families with young children, we could really help these kids and set them on the right track for learning.” Born Learning was created by United Way Worldwide as a tool to help parents, caregivers and communities create quality early learning opportunities for young children. It strives to make parents and caregivers aware of how young children learn, as well as teach easy, fun action steps that parents and grandparents can use everyday as they interact with children. “These are easy tools, sometimes as simple as talking about the colors of the trucks that pass by while mom and baby head to the grocery store,” says Amy Neal, United Way of Greater Cincinnati - Northern Kentucky Success By 6 Manager. “Starting a conversation with these parents about education, and the everyday opportunities that exist is essential to these children and their future academic successes.” For more information on the Born Learning Academy, please contact Amy Neal at 859-647-5522.

Stivers’ shot wins Scott’s 3rd straight title By James Weber

After giving his team the ultimate lift, Ryan Stivers got a lift himself. Stivers, a junior guard for the Scott High School boys’ basketball team, hit a threepointer with 15 seconds left for the winning points in a 53-51 win over Bishop Brossart in the 37th District final Feb. 27. After the game, Stivers ended up on the shoulders of teammates as students rushed the court and swarmed the team in celebration. “I just came in, they were sagging off me, so I thought if I shot it, it would go in,” he said. “It’s the best feeling in the world, definitely the highlight of my basketball career.” Scott (17-9) won the district for the third straight year. The Eagles were set to play Bracken County in a 10th Region quarterfinal

Wednesday night, March 3, at the Mason County Fieldhouse. Brossart, by losing, drew defending regional champ Mason County. “Our school has only won nine districts, and we’ve had three in a row,” Scott head coach Brad Carr said. “These seniors have been involved in 33 percent of the districts that have been won at Scott High School. That shows their hard work and dedication.” Stivers, who had scored just 39 points all year entering the tourney, came into the game in the fourth quarter with Scott trailing by five points. On consecutive possessions, junior guard Kellen Smith cut across the line and dished to an open Stivers on the right wing, and he hit both treys. “Nobody else was scoring and he comes off the bench to do that, which was fantastic,” Smith said. “That was big for our momen-

to a 21-2 run in the second period to lead by seven. The Eagles then scored the last five points in the second period and continued that run to a 12-3 count to lead by two. Stivers was named to the all-tournament team. Smith was the Most Valuable Player, and O’Conner was an alltourney pick. Jacob Niederegger led Scott with 15 points, and senior forward Keylo Jones had 11. JAMES WEBER/STAFF

tum.” Stivers missed a third attempt later from the same spot on the baseline he would hit the gamewinner. Senior center Daniel O’Conner, who had fouled out, then helped contribute to the final shot. “I told him he hesitated on the first miss,” O’Conner said. “I told him don’t think about it, just throw it up there.” Said Carr: “We stay on him in practice every single day about being ready and being prepared. You never know when your chance is going to be called. His number was called today, and he responded.” After Stivers gave the Eagles the lead, they forced Jacob Rieger, Brossart’s leading scorer and star forward, into an off-balance shot shortly before time expired. The dramatic ending punctuated a game filled with runs. Scott led 19-8 after one quarter, but Brossart rolled


Holmes claimed its third straight 35th District title, beating Covington Catholic 57-43 in the final. The Bulldogs’ (23-5) state title defense continues in the Ninth Region Tournament, where they will play Dixie Heights (12-15) Thursday, March 4. Holmes won by three points Feb. 2. “There are no ducks in this bracket,” Holmes head coach David Henley said. With a win, Holmes will play either Newport Central Catholic or Boone County. Holmes beat those teams by a total of nine points in two games. The Boone game went to overtime. Henley knew those numbers by heart after seeing the draw Feb. 28. “We’re in a tough bracket,” he said. “I’m still trying to get them focused for 32 minutes instead of 25 or 26.” Against Cov Cath, Elijah Pittman, Ricardo Johnson and Jeremiah Johnson combined for 45 of the 57 points. Simon Kenton improved to a perfect 5-for-5 in 32nd District finals with a 44-43

Jayden Julian has twice recently thought her season was ending. Instead, Julian, a sophomore forward for the Holy Cross girls’ basketball team, will continue with the Indians into the Ninth Region Tournament. They qualified for the regional after a stirring 6461 win over rival Holmes in the 35th District semifinals Feb. 23. Although the Indians lost to Notre Dame Feb. 26 in the final, 53-47, they were set to play St. Henry in the Ninth Region Tournament Tuesday, March 2. Julian had 30 points and 17 rebounds, six of the points in the fourth quarter as the Indians rallied from a nine-point deficit against Holmes to stave off elimination. A week before that game, Julian had suffered a knee injury originally thought to be a torn ACL, which would have kept her off the basketball and volleyball courts for several

it was rough,” Julian said. “I tried to play through it, and I’m glad I did. We played great as a team and pulled through. It’s great to make it to regionals because last year we got knocked out by Holmes.” A big key in the comeback against Holmes was the shots of freshman guard DeAsia Beal, who had 12 of her 26 points in the fourth. Beal had missed the first game between the teams, a Holmes win, due to a concussion. A basket by Anna Ward, her only points of the game, and two late free throws by Alexis Frye were also key moments down the stretch. “It took a lot of heart, a lot of effort,” Beal said. “We had to come out and play hard.” Holmes senior Bessea Hughes scored 25 points. HC head coach Shannon Minor put on a box-and-one defense in the fourth quarter to slow her down. “We’re a young team,” Minor said. “We’ve faced adversity throughout the year. We’ve had a tough schedule to prepare us for this. They fought through it and stayed together. This was our goal, to get to the regional.” Holmes finished 8-18. Hughes’ fellow seniors are Dayshawn Holder and Haley Stowers. Simon Kenton lost 42-41 to Walton-Verona in the 32nd District final. It was SK’s first loss after 39 straight wins since moving to the district for the 200506 season. Sydni Wainscott and Alli Ponzer were all-tourney picks.

Snow has slowed spring’s progress Question: I am getting really anxious to start my vegetable garden, work on pruning my apple trees, and see the spring bulbs come up and start flowering. It seems to me like these things should be happening by now. Am I right? What bulbs should we be seeing in bloom soon? It seems like there are usually a few things blooming by late February, but about all we’ve seen so far is snow! Answer: You’re right! All the snow and cold weather this winter has slowed the progress of spring! Some years after a mild winter, we’ll see early bloomers such as yellow crocus, Witchhazel, winter honeysuckle, and winter aconites (Eranthis) starting to flower in early February. In mid-February, we sometimes see blooms of Japanese

Apricot, Helleborus, Leatherleaf Mahonia, early daffodils and Narcissus, Siberian Squill (Scilla), Corneliancherry Dogwood (CorMike Klahr nus mas), and Community silver maple. By late FebRecorder ruary, we can guest o c c a s i o n a l l y columnist enjoy the flowers of purple crocus, Japanese Cornel Dogwood, Snowdrops (Galanthus), overwintered pansies, Anemones, Glory of the Snow (Chionodoxa), pussy willow, red maple, and the elms. If you see any of these or other flowers in bloom, please call me at

586-6101 to report them on our bloom list, or e-mail me at . For a copy of our 2009 Bloom List that shows starting flowering dates for various plants throughout the year, click on the “Horticulture” tab on our website at In the home orchard, you can start pruning your apple and pear trees any time now. Call 5722600 about attending a free demonstration March 13 (at the Campbell County Extension Office) on how to properly prune your fruit trees. As soon as it warms up a bit, on a warm day, you can apply dormant oil to kill overwintering mites and scale insects. Dormant oil is applied to trees in early spring before buds swell, in order to protect them from scale insects.

However, you should not spray dormant oil when air temperature is below 40 degrees F, or when it is likely to drop below 40 degrees within 24 hours. So listen to the weather forecast. Your trees will probably also need a bactericide spray of fixed copper while the tree is dormant, in order to protect against fireblight disease. But don’t mix the fixed copper with the dormant oil. (Note: fixed copper is not the same as copper sulfate). In the vegetable garden, start preparing the soil just as soon as possible, but don’t till it while it’s wet. During the first two weeks of March, weather and soil permitting, you can start planting seeds of spinach, mustard, beets, and peas in your outdoor garden. These “cool-season vegetables” will all tolerate some freezing

temperatures, so they should do fine. By mid-March, you can also plant start planting seeds of radishes, turnips, collards, and rutabaga, plus onion sets, and crowns of asparagus and rhubarb. You can also start planting early potato seed pieces around March 15-20. If you have raised beds that are getting low on soil, you can add new potting soil or soil mix out of bags, or you can add compost. Raised beds will warm faster in the spring, yielding earlier harvests. Also, by mixing in some dry potting soil now, you may be able to go ahead and start planting, even though the bed was too wet before you mixed in the dry materials. Mike Klahr is the Boone County Extension Agent for Horticulture.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question

Are you pleased with the way your public works crews have responded to the February snows? What could they have done better?

“I am very pleased with the response of crews that have kept us moving during these challenging winter days. Now fix the potholes quickly!” G.G. “Both state and county road crews did an excellent job in removing the recent snows in a timely fashion. It is great to see competence in government.” Rabbit Hash “Yes, I am very pleased. They did a great job!” Kimberley A. Powell “Yes, I think they did very good. I only counted 12 mailboxes knocked down! Thank you, road crew!” Duke

Next question: Would you consider or are you considering a Toyota for your next car, given the company’s recent recalls and safety concerns? Why or why not? Send your response to with “chatroom” in the subject line. “Walton crews have done an amazing job keeping our subdivision roads and main roads clear and safe! I moved here from Georgia and was scared to drive on ice and snow but they have made it much easier to survive here during the winter!” J.K.T. “They've done a wonderful job. I travel through Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties each day and have been quite impressed this year.” J.H.

Odds are colorectal screening saves lives

A helping hand


Senator John Schickel (R-Union) with Adam Seal. Adam, the son of John and Susan Seal and a fifth grade student at River Ridge Elementary, served as Senator Schickel’s page on Feb. 17.

Whether it’s March Madness or Mega Millions, we like to play the odds. When it comes to colon cancer screening, the odds are pretty good. It is estimated that 90 percent of colon cancer is preventable with screening. But unfortunately, many people remain unaware of the lifesaving benefit of such screening and one day will hear the words, “you have colon cancer.” Colon cancer kills more than 8,000 Kentuckians every year and is the second leading cause of death due to cancer nationwide. Sadly, many Kentucky lives could have been saved had they had screening for colon cancer through a colonoscopy. A colonoscopy is a procedure which helps detect growths in the lining of the colon, also known as polyps, which can lead to the development of colon cancer. When these growths are removed by your doctor, colon cancer is prevented. But colon cancer can be

sneaky. When people feel well, they assume they don’t have cancer. Unfortunately, the early stages of colon cancer are usually not associated with symptoms. This is also when the disease is most treatable if detected. It is not until the disease has advanced, or had the chance to spread to new places both inside and outside the colon, that an individual will notice changes to his/her health, and at that point it may be too late for effective treatment. Therefore, everyone should receive a screening colonoscopy at age 50. For individuals who have a relative affected with colon cancer or colon polyps, their doctor may even recommend that their first colonoscopy occur prior to age 50 – tell your doctor if you have any family history of cancers. Please do your part to help stop colon cancer. If you are over the age of 50, ask your doctor about having a colonoscopy and schedule to have it done! Do not delay or cancel your appointment

or you may never have one Jody Wallace – remember the Community odds are in your Recorder favor if you are guest screened. columnist Remind your friends, family members, and neighbors over the age of 50 or who have a strong family history of colon cancer about the importance of colon cancer screening so they can improve their odds as well. Finally, help raise community awareness of colon cancer by participating in the national Dress in Blue Day on March 5. Whether it is your favorite Kentucky Wildcat tee or your favorite blue scarf, you can take action and help spread the word that colon cancer can be prevented.

BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT Couple bring out the tender touch in photos By Regan Coomer

An Independence couple, the owners of Tender Touch Photography, work to cover all bases for their customers. “We do a lot of weddings as a husband and wife team. He does the men getting ready, I do the women getting ready,” Angela Williams explained. “He tells the story, I’ll all about the details and emotions. Together we fill in the whole wedding.” The couple have been in the photography business for about a year and a half, covering weddings, birthdays, family photos, senior photos and more. Before actually starting Tender Touch Photography, the two had taken photos for fun and were in-demand from loved ones, which presented a problem. “We were doing it for a lot of family and friends and every time we would go to have something printed, they wouldn’t want to do it because they said they were professional,” Angela recalled. “We just decided to go for it,” added Johnny Williams. The couple run a home studio, but also can take photos on location; recently the Williams photographed a student in hunting gear on a deer stand for his senior photos “Whatever they want, we want them to be happy because they’ve got an image in their head when they walk in the door,” Johnny said. Shooting on location is especially helpful for mothers who may need to have additional outfits on-hand, Angela explained. On the whole, families are also more comfortable taking photos in a familiar setting.


Paul Fiehrer of Covington takes some laps in the pool at Silverlake Recreation Center in Erlanger, Feb. 23. Fiehrer will be competing in the 50 and 100 freestyle races, as well as the 4x50 medley relay in the 2010 USA National Games this summer in Lincoln, Neb. This will his first Special Olympics at the national level.


Independence couple Johnny and Angela Williams are the talent behind Tender Touch Photography. The Williams specialize in family photos, but are available for a wide range of events, such as parties, weddings and senior photos. Besides making sure customers get the photo they want, another plus the couple offers is unlimited time to take photos - some photographers require a time limit. Angela also has more than 20 years’ experience as a makeup artist, and can do a customer’s hair and makeup for an additional fee. “We’re a family business and we got into this because we enjoy it,” Johnny said. Angela agreed, adding “One of the joys of life is finding something you’re truly passionate about and bringing joy to someone else.” Photo prices start at $50 for a sitting fee at the couple’s home and $75 onlocation. Cost for hair and makeup is $35. For more information about Tender Touch Photography, visit or call 859-743-0896.

Special Olympians have stories to tell By Adam Kiefaber

Throughout the 2010 Winter Olympics, there have been stories of perseverance and hardship. However, it is hard to imagine that any of those stories can hold a torch to the stories that reside in our local Special Olympians, who will compete in the 2010 USA National Games in Lincoln, Neb., July 18-23. Leading the group of local Olympians is Taylor Mill runner Matthew Minning, who already is a well-decorated track-and-field athlete earning a gold and two bronze medals in the 2006 USA National Games in Ames, Iowa, and two silver medals at the 2007 World summer Games in Shanghai, China. Minning, who boosts the nickname of the “Energizer Bunny,” hasn’t always been the great runner he is today. He had to work at it. When he first started running cross country at Scott High School it was very difficult for him to finish a 5K race. Eventually, finishing the race became more difficult for his teammates. “The boys would always tell me that he needs to run in longer races because he wouldn’t be tired and they would be,” Matthew’s mom, Marjorie said. “Sometimes it would just aggravate them (Scott team) because he would come in just fine, and they would be exhausted.” Minning has gone on to learn other sports and currently enjoys water skiing, snow skiing, wake boarding, roller skating, bowling, fishing, baseball and basketball. He will compete in the 3K, 5K and 10K races at this year’s games. Joining him in Nebraska will be

This year's Olympics will take place in Lincoln, Neb., July 18-23. swimmer Paul Fiehrer of Covington, gymnast Danielle Blakeney of Erlanger and golfer Christy Farwell of Alexandria. Each of the athletes has their own story of perseverance. Six years ago, Fiehrer was 15 when his cousin Jarrod Chaney died in a car accident coming home from work. Fiehrer was devastated as the elder Chaney had embraced him and was teaching him how to be a teenager at Dixie Heights High School. “One time, I asked Paul, why do you try so hard,” Paul’s mom, Paulette Fiehrer said. “Are you swimming for your cousin, Jarrod?” “Yes,” Paul told his mom. Fiehrer, who has been swimming almost his entire life, swam hard and went on to win the 50 and 100 freestyle races at the state meet last June at Eastern Kentucky University. This summer, he will participate in his first National Games in the 50 and 100 freestyle races as well as the 4x50 medley relay. He hopes to add a couple of medals to go along with his “Yes I Can” award and his artistic honors given to him for his watercolor paintings. Currently Minning and Fiehrer play in a basketball league with the Christy Farwell, who will be the first-ever female golfer (not part of a team) to represent the state of Kentucky in the national games. Farwell, who also won a bronze medal for track and field during the 2006 games, prides herself on beating the boys. “I like the challenge because they kind of get mad and it is fun to watch them get mad,” she said. In her basketball league, she is only one of three girls on her team. Her biggest boy-beating accomplishment has to be in golf, where she has defeated her competition despite pick-


Taylor Mill Special Olympian Matthew Minning seen here participating in the 2007 World Summer Games in Shanghai, China, won a pair of silver medals at the event. Minning hopes to add to his medal total at the Special Olympics 2010 USA National Games July 1823 in Lincoln, Neb. In 2006, Minning won a gold and two bronze medals at the national games. ing up the game only two years ago. “She has beat some of the boys that have been playing for 15 years, it is rare but she can,” Christy’s mom, Carol said. “Playing with the boys, that is a feather in anyone’s hat.” Rounding out the group is the incredible story of gymnast Danielle Blakeney. When Blakeney was born she weighed two pounds, four ounces. The doctors told her mother, Coleen, she was going to be blind and unable to walk. Now, she is an 18-year-old senior at Boone County High School that will compete in her first Olympic games. As well as excelling in gymnastics, Blakeney is an honor roll student, a cheerleader and has participated in track and field. “If you ask her why she competes or why it is important to be a gymnast or a cheerleader, she will tell you that when she is in a uniform no one know treats her like she is different,” Coleen Blakeney said.

Can there be a thrill in monotony?

Two ways can lead us to more deeply drink of life. One way is that of awareness. We overlook too much meaning, perceive only the veneer, and don’t take enough time to pan for the gold of understanding. As a remedy for superficiality a psychologist might begin by mentioning Plato’s belief that “an unexamined life is not worth living.” To encourage the same awareness a spiritual counselor might facetiously suggest an unaware adult replace the line from a child’s bedtime prayer, “if I should die before I wake…” with, “if I should wake before I die.” Many times I have written of deepening our awareness in life. Today I suggest a secondary mode. It is a paradoxical suggestion – gain the appreciation of life by insights into monotony. Modern minds hate monotony. The repetitious

has little attraction. “ B e e n t h e r e , seen it, d o n e that,” we say as if to a v o i d Father Lou repeating Guntzelman what we think we Perspectives a l r e a d y know. Culturally, the modern mind hates the monotony of the same spouse, the same car, the same fashion, the same morals, and a commitment to anything permanent. We think that makes us more free. So we frenetically search for new thrills, new chemical or experiential highs, new religions, extreme sports, etc. – anything to avoid being swallowed by monotony. Adherents of this search for the new might argue thus: everything that is full of life loves change because

Plates, bill of sale needed to protect car sellers With car dealers offering deals on new cars these days, more and more people are considering selling their old cars. But, if you’re planning on selling your car on your own, a word of warning so you don’t get stung like a local man. Jason Korte is a 22-yearold college student from North College Hill who wanted to sell his truck. He advertised on the Internet, found a buyer and got paid in cash. He said he thought he did everything right, but ended up losing his driving privileges and more. “The buyer and I went to the title office and we basically signed the title, transferred it. But, looking back now he didn’t have the proof of insurance with him nor did he have his driver’s license – and they still let us do the title transfer,” said Korte. Korte had signed the back of his title and the buyer signed acknowledging the odometer statement. “I did not have the tools to take the license plates off the car, so when the buyer went next door to take care of the registration he said he’d take care of it. I guess he went in there and did nothing. He left my license plates on the car,” Korte said. Korte didn’t learn what had happened until three months later when that buyer ran into a parked car. Korte got stuck with a bill from that car owner’s insurance company. “They’re saying I owe them damages of around $7,800. I called them and said I didn’t have a wreck and didn’t know what they were talking about,” he said. “They said it was about a red truck that I let my friend drive, and that I didn’t have insurance. I said I had sold that truck to him,” Korte said. It turns out that sale was never recorded by the Ohio

Bureau of M o t o r Vehicles – a n d remember Korte had left his license plates on Howard Ain the car. Failing Hey Howard! to take your license plates from a car you sell is actually against the law. Korte’s driver’s license has now been suspended because he didn’t have insurance on the truck he still legally owned. The BMV said Korte must settle with the insurance company before he’ll be allowed to drive again. “I don’t even know what to do. It’s driving me nuts. They’re saying I owe them more than $7,000 before I can even start driving,” Korte said. Technically, the insurance company can also go after the driver who ran into the parked car. But, that person was sentenced to a year in jail after being convicted of drunk driving and driving on a suspended license. Korte is now trying to provide proof he had actually sold the vehicle and received payment. The Bureau of Motor Vehicles offers several tips for selling your car. • Always stay with the buyer until you see the vehicle transferred into the buyer’s name. • Always take your license plates with you, which guarantees that the buyer must get his own plates. • Finally, always make up a bill of sale and get it signed and dated by both parties – keeping a copy of the original for yourself.

life is ever changing. Life is always looking ahead and forward, not here or within. Repetition of what is experienced now only breeds boredom and monotony. But couldn’t the contrary be true? Instead of saying that those who are full of life hate monotony, couldn’t we say that those who are actually full of life also find a positive thrill in monotony? A child is certainly full of life. Yet, if we play a fun game with a child or do an amusing trick, they’ll say, “Do it again.” If we tell them a story, they won’t say Aunt Edna already told me that. They’ll most likely say, “Tell me again.” Patiently build a house of cards, and after it

falls they’ll say “Do it again.” The child is an innocent spark of a God who delights in the new as well as in repetition. I remember the impact on me when, as seminarian, I heard an old song in a new way. One morning, at an early springtime Mass, as the sunlight peeked through chapel window into our sleepy eyes, the musicians began our opening song. It was a song made popular years before by Cat Stevens: “Morning has broken like the first morning; blackbird has spoken like the first bird…” I still remember its impact. The lyrics brought home to me the wonderful repetition of God’s creative act that is repeated each

day. Suddenly, I looked on the monotony (?) of each morning as part of God’s romance of us – using the monotony of daily beauty as a reminder of the primordial beauty with which he first endowed the world. Because God is full of life, he can also enjoy the thrill that comes from sameness as well as newness. “I can imagine Almighty God, with something of the joy and exuberance that belongs to a child, saying each morning to the sun, ‘Do it again,’ and every evening saying to the moon and stars, ‘Do it again,’ and every springtime saying to the daisies, ‘Do it again,’” wrote Bishop Fulton Sheen. God has the eternal appetite of the vibrancy

manifested in infancy. We have sinned and grown old, but our Father is younger than we. The repetition of nature may not be mere monotonous reoccurrence but a divine encore for our enjoyment. And some day, after we have struggled with our lifedramas and repetitive problems – and become victorious through God’s grace – we, too, may be called again and again as a curtain-call before the universe.

I chose my health care with confidence

ONE OF THE TOP 50 HOSPITALS IN THE UNITED STATES FOR 2010 When it was time to re-evaluate my family’s health care provider, St. Elizabeth popped to the top of the list. St. Elizabeth Edgewood was named one of the top 50 hospitals in the country for 4 years running. One of the country’s best hospitals, steps from my door? It made my decision an easy one. St. Elizabeth and my family are simply Better Together.

Spice up your Lenten fish dish with salsa At the beginning of Lent, I bring out my Mom’s ancient hand-hewn wooden bowl from Lebanon and sit it on the c o u n t e r. Whenever I peel a yellow onion, the Rita p a p e r y Heikenfeld skins go the Rita’s kitchen into bowl. Yesterday, our youngest grandchild, little Eva who will be 2 years old this week, helped pull the skins from the onions for the first time. She will join her cousins the day before Easter helping me color the eggs with natural colorings, like the onion skins, turmeric, beet juice, red cabbage, etc. I’ll share the recipe as we get closer to Easter. Lent is a great time to eat less meat, so the recipe I’m sharing today for tilapia is a good one to get you started.


Tilapia with tomatoes and capers salsa

John T’s mock turtle soup

4 pieces tilapia or salmon

Brush with a bit of olive oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Run under broiler about four to six minutes, turning the fish over if thick. Or sauté. Just don’t overcook it. Check out my blog on for vegetarian recipes for Lent.


2 cups chopped tomato 1 ⁄2 cup chopped parsley 1-2 tablespoons capers, drained (I like 2) 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar or rice wine vinegar 1 teaspoon anchovy paste (optional but very good) 1 scant tablespoon minced garlic Several tablespoons of olive oil – go to taste Salt and pepper to taste


For Lucine Erb, a Hilltop Press reader.

11⁄2 pounds ground beef 3 quarts HOT water 20 to 30 gingersnaps 1 large onion 1 medium carrot 1 lemon 2 ounces Worcestershire sauce 1 small bottle ketchup (14-ounce) 1 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄2 teaspoon pepper 4 hard-boiled eggs (finely chopped) 2 tablespoons sherry wine (or vinegar) Small bag of pickling spice Place the meat and gingersnaps in the hot water and allow to stand for 10 to 15 minutes. Grind or grate the onion and the carrot and add to mixture. Slice the lemon paper thin and add to mixture.


Add ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Suspend bag of pickling spice into mixture. Cook over a low heat for 2 to 3 hours. Stir frequently. Add finely chopped eggs about h a l f h o u r before finish. A d d wine (or vinegar). Cool quickly by placing in sink of cold water. When cool, place in refrigerator until ready for use. Mixture will keep for a week or more if refrigerated. Can also be frozen for later use. Enjoy!

Goetta origin update

I can’t wait to share this information with Mark Balasa of Glier’s Meats – they make a great goetta. Charlene Mecklenburg, Manfred Schnetzer and Dr. Don Heinrich Tolzmann, president of the German-American Citizens League and curator of the German Heritage Museum in Cleves, all sent in fascinating information about the origins of goetta. Turns out it comes from northern Germany, and those folks who immigrated to our area carried the goetta-making tradition with them. More on our Web version of this column.

Open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., the new Women's Wellness Center can accommodate any woman who needs a scan regardless of where they have had prior scans performed at.

The Women's Wellness

The new Women's Wellness Center offers screening mammograms and dexa bone density scans.

Attorney’s office donates to Children’s Home The staff of the Kenton County Attorney's office will donate over $1,000 to the Diocesan Catholic Children's Home. This money was collected throughout the 2009 year through a voluntary $2 weekly donation. In exchange for the donation, staff wore denim on Friday's. “It is rewarding for my staff to be given the opportunity to wear jeans at the end of the work week,” Kenton County Attorney Garry Edmondson said. “More importantly, it is rewarding for the employees to give to a cause in which they believe in and that richly benefits Northern Kentucky and the tri-state area.” Diocesan Catholic Children's Home is a treatment center for children, ages 6 to 14, who have severe to moderate emotional and/or

behavioral problems. The origins of the Home date back to over 160 years when a group of Kenton Countians met to form the St. John's Orphan Society. DCCH has evolved over the years to meet the changing needs of the community. Their mission seeks to provide compassionate care and quality services to address the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of children and families. Kenton County Attorney employees that participated in this cause throughout the year submitted area charities for a drawing in which the chosen charity received the donation in full. Friday “jean's day” is over one month underway for the year 2010 and employees are donating so that another charity can benefit from this endeavor at years end.

IN THE SERVICE Rogers completes training

Marine Corps Pvt. Matt A. Rogers recently completed 12 weeks of basic training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, S. C., designed to challenge new Marine recruits both physically and mentally. Rogers and fellow recruits began their training at 5 a.m., by running three miles and performing calisthenics. In addition to the physical conditioning program, Harkness spent numerous hours in classroom and field assignments which included learning first aid, uniform regulations,

combat water survival, marksmanship, hand-tohand combat and assorted weapons training. They performed close order drill and operated as a small infantry unit during field training. The recruits ended the training phase with The Crucible, a 54-hour, team evolution culminating in an emotional ceremony in which recruits are presented the Marine Corps Emblem, and addressed as “Marines” for the first time in their careers. Rogers is the son of Sharon G. Carvsone of Independence and Jon S. Rogers of Independence.

• Senior Services of Northern Kentucky • The Salvation Army’s Camp Swonoky • Welcome House • Women’s Crisis Center The event itself will include a fine arts raffle, a “Flavor of Kentucky” bake table and a Pot of Gold. A principle source of funds at this event will be the silent auction that is known for its

amazing array of special items related to this year’s “Celebrate Kentucky” theme.
