School mourns student’s loss
By Regan Coomer firstname.lastname@example.org
Notre Dame Academy student Maria Schaffstein, 17, touched many during her short life, school officials said. Schaffstein, a resident of Park Hills, was killed and seven other students were injured when their vehicle crashed in Alabama April 16. The girls, all students at NDA, were on their Maria Schaffstein way home from a spring break trip in Florida. “I think Maria will be smiling down at us,” said student council co-president Amy Beischel at a press conference held April 19 at the school. “She lived a good life. She found love early in life with her boyfriend Peter (Thomas). She touched on everything most people touch on in their whole lives in 17 years.” State troopers said driver Katherine Russo, 18, of Park Hills, tried to pass a tractor-trailer when her vehicle ran off the edge of the road. Russo then lost control of the vehicle when she over-corrected. Schaffstein was pronounced dead at the scene. The other seven were hurt, with injuries ranging from minor to critical. “We’re very grateful for the support the community has given us through this whole tragedy,” said NDA President Sister Mary Shauna Bankemper April 19.
Notre Dame Academy President Sister Mary Shauna Bankemper addressed the press Monday, April 19 about the vehicle crash that killed one student and injured seven others. Five students are home while two are still recovering in an Alabama hospital. Bankemper said Katherine Russo, Megan E. Berberich, 18, of Fort Wright, Catherine Ammerman, 17, of Florence, Megan Downing, 18, of Fort Mitchell and Jordan Zumdick, 18, of Fort Wright, returned home April 18. Student Krista Noll, 18, of Fort

Mitchell, is still in serious condition along with student Jessica Russo, 17, who was in critical condition as of The Kenton Community Recorder’s print deadline. “The family – they’re so grateful for the life of Maria. She touched so many people in her short 17 years,” Bankemper said. Counselor Tessa Taylor said roses have been placed at the desk of each girl in remembrance. “They’re still in our hearts even though they’re not here with us,” she said. Bankemper went on to say alcohol and drugs were not involved in the accident, adding it was just that: an accident. “The accident has nothing to do with spring break and everything to do with an accident. Accidents happen in life.” Schaffstein was full of life, said student council co-president Emily Cooney. “We’re a really tight class. We’re all coming together as a
class. We’re going to get through this.” A visitation will be held for Schaffstein at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, April 22, at St. Agnes Church in Fort Wright, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11:30 a.m. Burial will be in Mother of God Cemetery in Latonia. Schaffstein is survived by her parents, John and Eileen Schaffstein, of Park Hills; Her sister, Anna Schaffstein, of Park Hills; her brother, Johnny Schaffstein, of Park Hills; her maternal grandparents, Bob and Carol Fitzpatrick of Villa Hills; and her paternal grandparents, Bob and Carole Schaffstein, of Evansville, Ind. Memorials can be made to Notre Dame Academy, c/o Maria Schaffstein Scholarship Fund, 1699 Hilton Drive, Park Hills, KY 41011 Online condolences can be made at www.middendorf-funeralhome.com.
Latonia study’s hosts first public meeting By Regan Coomer email@example.com
Latonia residents are invited to the first public meeting of the Latonia Area Study. The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 29, in Holy Cross High School’s cafeteria, 3617 Church St. Northern Kentucky Area Planning Commission representatives will present the existing conditions report of Latonia, made up of a building structure survey, key person interviews and online survey results at the meeting, said
Project Manager James Fausz. Fausz hopes to break up residents into small groups to facilitate discussion on the accuracy of the report. “It gives us more information if we’ve missed anything. Maybe an issue we think is really important, the residents will be like, ‘That’s not an issue,’ so that will give us a chance to focus what our attention will be in making the plan,” he explained. NKAPC planner Keith Logsdon agreed, saying the meeting will “fill in” residents on what planners have found so far.
“If there’s things we’ve missed they can let us know what that is and elaborate on things we don’t know that much about.” After the meeting, Fausz said the NKAPC will take all the information gathered and begin to formulate a plan to better Latonia throughout the next 20 to 30 years. Once the plan is complete, it will go back to the public, Covington City Commission and the Kenton County Planning Commission for approval before being adopted into the Kenton County Comprehensive Plan.

Some issues that have already come to the fore in the report is the need for playgrounds, absentee landlords, green infrastructure and wayfinding throughout the neighborhood, Fausz said. “We’ll be taking those issues we’ve heard about and we and the public feel are big issues and working towards trying to find a solution to address those and make Latonia a better place,” Fausz said. The second public meeting will be scheduled in late summer. For more information on the Latonia Area Study, visit nkapc.org.

Edmondson, Nageleisen face off again in May By Regan Coomer email@example.com
Kenton County’s prosecuting attorney will be determined by the May 18 primary, in which incumbent Garry Edmondson will again run against Don Nageleisen, his challenger in the 2006 election. Independence resident Nageleisen, 49, ran as a Democrat in 2006 and said he didn’t get running for office “out of his system.” Nageleisen, who has 20 years of law experience, said he is very “dissatisfied” with the job Edmondson is doing. “I think he’s cost the taxpayers millions upon millions of dollars. I didn’t approve of the way he lied to the people of Independence and Covington and Elsmere in regard to where the jail was going to be placed.”
Nageleisen said Edmondson knew where the jail was going to be before the election and “kept it a secret and mis-led all of those votes.” Edmondson If elected, Nageleisen wants to take a more active role as county attorney. “Going to court 10 times in 16 years to me is not doing your job for Nageleisen the tax payers of Kenton County,” he said. Nageleisen also plans to “tighten things up” in the county attorney’s office, saying Edmondson has no need of his office’s public information officer.
“While my opponent may call her by a different term, the bottom line is all this person is hired to do is try to make my opponent look good to the public,” he said. “I definitely will not have a PR person on the payroll whose sole purpose is to try and make me look good.” As county attorney, Nageleisen hopes to deter young people from using drugs. “We have to deter them early on before experimentation becomes an everyday problem,” Nageleisen said. “You can assign them community service. You can have them start cleaning up Kenton County.” Edmondson, 63, is a Fort Wright resident who has held his office as Kenton County Attorney since 1993. “I believe that the county attor-
ney’s office is running very well, smoothly and effectively and I want to continue that. I enjoy the work very much,” he said. Edmondson said he is proud of the $13 million collected in child support and a 98 percent DUI prosecution success rate as well as the success of the Why I Love America Calendar Contest and the Kenton County Government Academy. “I’m looking forward to the new judge executive who will be tackling some long-standing issues. My 38 years now of experience in local government will be a big help to that,” Edmondson said. Edmondson denied Nageleisen’s statement that he knew about the jail’s location before the 2006 election. “The truth of it is nobody knew
but Judge (Ralph) Drees. I didn’t know nor would I lie about it,” he said. Drees confirmed what Edmondson said; adding “My recollection would be that Garry would not have known anything about it. I didn’t want the story out that I was trying to buy it because people would have raised their prices. He wouldn’t have got it from me, that’s for sure.” Edmondson also stated that Nageleisen has won two cases in Kenton County District Court in 17 years, citing statistics kept by his office. Nageleisen said Edmondson “has no idea what he’s talking about.” “I try cases in as far away as Louisville and Lexington, not to mention all the other counties in between,” he said.
Kenton County judge-exec debate air out issues By Regan Coomer firstname.lastname@example.org
Terse voices and some laughs rang out at the judge-executive debate at the Erlanger library April 14. The debate was sponsored by The Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, LEGACY and The Kentucky Enquirer/ NKY.com. The evening opened with commissioner candidates engaging in a brief Q&A and closed with a three-way debate between Republican judge-executive candidates Scott Kimmich, Dan Moening and Steve Arlinghaus.
The winner of the primary will face Independent candidate Alyssa Dara McDowell in November. Arlinghaus and Moening agreed that the county has not been fiscally responsible in the last few years, citing the purchase of land in Independence for a jail site that was never used, and is still owned, by the county. “Absolutely not,” Arlinghaus said. “That particular land was valued at $350,000. This administration paid $750,000, more than double the value of it. Why?” Kimmich replied that he is “tired about hearing about how everyone else is
mismanaging money,” adding Arlinghaus said he was “rushed” into voting for a $850,000 settlement of a lawsuit during his time on the fiscal court. “I’ll never be rushed into spending $850,000 of your money by attorneys or anyone else,” Kimmich said. Moening and Arlinghaus also agreed on allowing the fiscal court, and not just the judge-executive, to vote on Sanitation District No. 1 fees. “Right now the judgeexecutive can rubber stamp anything,” Moening said. “That needs to change. It takes one corrupt person to lead to a lot of bad things happening in our county.”
“I replaced my windows — and it was no big to-do!"
Moening and Arlinghaus also agreed on allowing the fiscal court, and not just the judge-executive, to vote on Sanitation District No. 1 fees. Kimmich, however, said he’s “prepared to be the watchdog of the citizens in handling the sanitation district and other specific districts existing out there.” Kimmich also said he is “not opposed” to holding public hearings as to whether the sewer district should receive rate increases. The candidates also touched on the relationship between the county and its cities.
“There has never been such a disconnect between the cities and counties,” Arlinghaus said. “You got to have people at the table you can trust, that want to work together and that have the ability to work together and currently we don’t have that.” Kimmich replied that he has now been endorsed by five Kenton County mayors, later revealing them to be the mayors of Park Hills,
Villa Hills, Fairview, Ryland Heights and Elsmere. Candidates did agree on one issue: no smoking ban. Kimmich called the agreement a “miracle.” All three felt it should be the choice of the business owner, not government. In closing remarks, Arlinghaus urged voters to look at the experience of each candidate, “good or bad,” Moening said he is not accepting campaign funding and promised no political thank yous and Kimmich said he will explore ways to “reduce the size, cost and scope of county government.”

Elsmere Senior Center to get new roof TMC offers health care reform roundtable April 28 By Jason Brubaker email@example.com
The Elsmere Senior Center project continues to get bigger...and better. Councilman Marty Lenhof said that because the project has continued to come in under what the city had originally planned, they’ve has been able to add several change orders to the project, including a new water heater and a new roof, as well as a new sign to replace the wooden one on the front of the building. The project, which is being funded through a federal grant, was originally budgeted by the city to cost approximately $215,000. “Things are really coming along nicely there, and
The elevator shaft on the side of the Elsmere Senior Center is nearly completed, as are the bottom floor renovations. The new-look center is expected to be fully completed by the beginning of June. it’s looking good,” said Lenhof at the April 13 council meeting. “We’re just glad we’ve been able to get more done than what we thought.”
Carol Cope, the center director, said that she’s excited with the progress made on the building so far. She said the new elevator shaft on the side of the building is nearly complete, as are the renovations of the bottom floor, which includes a new kitchen area. The new kitchen includes cabinets salvaged from the upstairs kitchen (which will also be redone), as well as new countertops and appliances. “Oh, I just love this new kitchen!” said Cope, smiling. “There used to be a lot of wasted space down here, but this is so much better,
and it’s really a benefit to everyone who uses the center.” Work on the top floor of the center is continuing, Cope said, and is expected to be completed soon. In addition to the new upstairs kitchen, there will be a new lobby area near the elevator entrance, as well as three smaller rooms for recreational use that are being redone. Additionally, she said all of the new rooms will have new flooring and new paint. And although some equipment and supplies have had to be temporarily moved from the center to the public works building to make room for the construction, Cope said that the distractions have been fairly minimal to the center’s users. “For the most part, we’ve tried to keep it to business as usual,” she said. “There’s been a few changes in programs or activities, but we’ve tried our best to keep everything going, and it’s worked out pretty well.” For more information about the senior center, call 727-2306.

Taylor Mill student preached purple at walk
By Regan Coomer email@example.com
Taylor Mill 12-year-old Allison Hughes recently walked toward the Washington Monument in a sea of purple (shirts). “The cool thing about it was I saw people in purple shirts, which meant they had epilepsy like me. I thought that was really cool - I could relate to that,” Hughes said. Hughes and 20,000 other participants walked in the 2010 National Walk for Epilepsy held in Washington D.C. March 27 at the National Mall. “When you looked out all you could see was a whole bunch of purple shirts,” Hughes said. Hughes and 14 Camp Dream Catcher alums were chosen to go to
the walk. Camp Dream Catcher is a camp for students with epilepsy sponsored by the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Cincinnati. Hughes got to visit Arlington National Cemetery, the Library of Congress and of course, the Washington Monument, Hughes’ favorite. “I liked it a lot because it was really pretty with a whole bunch of kites around it, like 1,000 kites. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh!’” Hughes said. Hughes hopes the walk raised awareness about epilepsy as well as camps like Camp Dream Catcher, which had a profound effect on the Turkey Foot Middle School seventh grader. “It’s really fun because only people with epilepsy can go there,” Hughes said. “I just want other people to know
because I want them to have the experience I had throughout the camp - to have fun and not feel like they can’t do anything.” Hughes’ mom Lisa agreed, adding “She’s been to every single one since she started going. It’s her favorite place on the planet.” This isn’t the first time Hughes has worked to raise epilepsy awareness; in the past she has raised more than $3,000 creating and selling bookmarks to help fund other kids’ stays at Camp Dream Catcher. “I’d recommend going there. It’s fun and they get to meet new kids that are just like them,” she said. For more information about Camp Dream Catcher, visit cincinnatiepilepsy.com/camp.
Taylor Mill resident Allison Hughes (second from right) recently participated in the National Walk for Epilepsy in Washington, D.C. March 27. Hughes, who has epilepsy, has raised more than $3,000 in donations to Camp Dreamcatcher, a camp for children with epilepsy run by the Cincinnati chapter of the National Epilepsy Foundation.

Callery and Kohake each had late base hits during a four-run fifth inning that gave the Indians a 6-1 lead. Cov Cath came back with two runs in the fifth and two in the seventh before the final double play.

Rob Broering pitched a complete game against SK, and Tyler Johnson was the starting pitcher against the Colonels. “We knew we had a fairly deep pitching staff and that has helped us,” Holtz said. “Tyler had his longest
outing of the year. He really shut them down until the very end. To end the game on a really good throw like that is characteristic of how we’ve been winning games. We score just enough runs to win and our pitching and defense has held us in there.” Kohake said a lot of players made plays during the weekend. “Great pitching, hard work, team effort,” he said. “Everybody chipped in. Our defense played great the entire tournament. We have great senior leadership.” Seniors are Drew Schneider, Ben Bolton, Keith Egan and Andy Roenker.
Calvary improving on tennis court By James Weber email@example.com
Pierce Kohls has made a name for the Calvary Christian boys’ tennis team in recent years. Head coach Mike Kohls, Pierce’s father, hopes the Cougars can make an even deeper impact in the state this year. In early April, the Cougars played in the King of the Bluegrass Tournament for the third straight year. Calvary finished 11th out of 16 teams in the tourney, which invited some of the top
teams from Kentucky and surrounding states. Calvary went 2-2 in that tournament and lost its first Northern Kentucky match, 3-2 to St. Henry April 13. Pierce Kohls, Ninth Region boys’ singles runner-up the past three years, made the quarterfinals of the state tournament last year. Coach Kohls hopes Pierce gets company in the state tourney this year. Pierce will miss some matches this season after joining the Calvary baseball team. Having
committed to play tennis for Northern Kentucky University, Pierce is rounding out his prep sports career. “He really loves the team sports,” Coach Kohls said. “He hasn’t played baseball since fifth grade and he wanted to give it a try.” Senior Steve Leichter, Calvary’s No. 1 singles player when Kohls is out, has a chance to qualify for the state tourney, the coach said. “He’s a pretty good player,” Kohls said. “I think he has a decent chance to get seeded in the
region and maybe go to state if the draw works out for him. That would be super to get two from Calvary.” Another senior Cougar is surging in singles of late. Ryan Grinstead won his fourth match in a row against St. Henry, pulling out a three-set win over senior Dominic Palazzo. “He is on cloud nine,” Kohls said. “He has won four in a row. I don’t think he has won more than one in a row before. His confidence is building day by day.” The rest of the Cougar team is
sophomores and younger. Calvary will have a challenging week, playing three of the area’s top teams in Highlands (April 22), Ryle (April 23) and Covington Catholic (April 26). The first two are on the road, the third at Summit Hills Country Club in Crestview Hills. The CovCath match will feature Pierce Kohls against CovCath senior Jimmy Roebker, the 2009 state champ and victor over Kohls in the past three regional finals.

Kentucky’s budget stalemate disappointing, could be worse The General Assembly adjourned the 2010 General Assembly Session without finalizing a budget. It is a matter that has caused much frustration and even anger. No was more disappointed than myself. As I stated in my last column, the fact of the matter is that the Senate would not agree to a fiscally unsound budget proposed by the House that raised more than $280 million in taxes and bonded more than $1 billion in projects that we cannot afford. That being said, I would rather have no budget than a bad budg-
State Sen. John Schickel Community Recorder guest columnist et. The media like to focus on the cost of a special session, but that cost compared to the money saved by a special session is miniscule. It is estimated that a special session would cost around $60,000 a day. Just the interest on the $1 billion worth of borrowed money that the House proposed would be $1.2
million a day. While the need for a special session is disappointing, it is a good investment when comparing the other options. We cannot continue to tax and spend and borrow. We must provide financial stability to our citizens so they know we have our financial house in order. The state must make the same hard choices that our families are making and have been making for a long time. This will help Kentucky live within our means and prepare us for a better day. After a cooling off period, I am sure that talks will continue between the Senate and the House.
After having little involvement during the session, the governor announced that he would call the General Assembly back into session in May. It would be a mistake to call us back without a prior written agreement. We in the Senate are standing firm against higher debt and higher taxes. If you agree, please call toll-free 1-800-3727181 or TTY 1-800-896-0305 and let your representative know that you support a responsible two-year budget that includes no job-killing taxes on Kentucky employers and stops our spiral into unsustainable indebtedness.
Now for some good news: I had a good session legislatively. Only three senators sponsored more successful legislation than myself during this session. These bills will make Kentucky government more efficient and responsive. We will review these bills in the next column. State Sen, John Schickel, R-Union, represents the 11th Senate District, which includes Boone and Gallatin Counties and part of Kenton County.

CHATROOM What’s your opinion of Chad Ochocinco’s non-football activities, like “Dancing with the Stars”? “To me, these athletes should have to purchase a high quantity of injury insurance to cover their franchise in case of injury. You can not limit them for what they can do, but you can make them think twice about their safety, the franchise and their fans.” D.J. “Chad is a breath of fresh air.” J.Z. “I have no interest in dancing when professionals do it so I seldom watch ‘Dancing With The Stars.’ Just the same I have seen some of Chad’s performances and think he should concentrate more on football.” R.V. “Good for him! He is pretty good at dancing, and if he enjoys it, more power to him. I’m a little jealous of his talent; he is a real entertainer in many ways. I hope this makes him happy.” B.B.
“He seems to dance better and more consistently than playing football. Maybe he missed his true calling.” R.L.H.
St. Henry students Jake Jonaes, Cameron Bier, Maddie Winters, Whit Hammond are seen here baking cookies for a class project in fractions. As a final test the fourth-graders put their use of fractions into every day life experiences by using measurements to bake their cookies.
“Who cares? When Chad (whatever his last name du jour is) becomes a great, consistent player on the football field, then maybe what he does off the field will take on some interest.” M.M.
Asparagus needs good root system
“I think it’s good for his image and the image of the Bengals.” K.A.P. “Go Chad go ... just tone down some of your comments!” S.W. “I hope Chad gets his ego adequately stroked by his TV programs; his body in good shape from the dancing rigor and then focuses on being a great football player. I hope it all works together for good.” G.G.

Question : I planted some asparagus in my garden last spring, and I want to plant more now. Some spears are coming up, but they are very thin. Did I do something wrong? Answer: You will need a sunny location. You should not harvest the first year. And don’t harvest spears if they are less than pencil diameter. Just let them grow up into ferns. Also, be sure to fertilize each year in the spring. Here are some general guidelines for successful asparagus production. Asparagus is a perennial vegetable that, once established, may live for 15 to 30 years. Locate asparagus to one side of the garden where it will not be disturbed. It is one of the most valuable early vegetables and is well adapted to freezer storage. The spears develop daily in early spring with the rate of emergence increasing as temperatures increase. You can start asparagus from seed, although starting from 1- to 2-year-old crowns set in early March is recommended. You could still do this now. The crowns are actually a com-
bination of rhizomes, fleshy roots and fibrous roots. The fleshy roots, which may spread laterally under the soil several feet from the rhizomes, Mike Klahr store food reserves that help Community develop the tenRecorder der shoots the columnist next spring. Soil type determines the depth to plant crowns. Usually they are planted in a trench 12 to 15 inches wide and 6 to 8 inches deep. Plant at the shallower depth if the soil is heavy clay. Incorporate rotted manure or compost, plus fertilizer, into the soil before setting the crowns because little organic matter can be added later. When planting asparagus, set plants 15 to 18 inches apart in rows 30 inches apart. Place the crown on a small amount of soil in the trench, allowing it to be slightly higher than the roots. Spread the roots out and cover the crown with 2 to 3 inches of soil. Firm

As plants begin to grow, continue to put soil around and over the crowns until the trench is filled. Asparagus shoots or spears should not be harvested the first year after crowns are set. Limit harvests the second year after planting to three to four weeks, then let the ferns grow. This procedure is necessary so that the root system will develop from its limited size and will store food reserves to produce growth the next year. Plants harvested too heavily too early after setting may become weakened and spindly. After the third year, harvests can be continued for eight to 10
weeks. Harvest spears daily when they are 5 to 7 inches tall. Break them off at the soil level instead of cutting below the soil surface. Cutting can easily injure the crown buds which produce the next spears. Harvest in early morning and use or refrigerate immediately. Each year in the early spring, sidedress asparagus with 1 pound of 5-10-10 fertilizer per 100 square feet. Following freezing weather in the fall, remove the asparagus tops to decrease disease problems.

Plenty fun to be had in Kenton County parks By Regan Coomer firstname.lastname@example.org
PATRICIA A. SCHEYER/CONTRIBUTOR
Dr. Benjamin Gosnell and Dr. Joseph Gormley relax for a moment in their offices on U.S. 42.
Family dentist stresses wellness By Patricia A. Scheyer Community Recorder Contributor
Dr. Joseph Gormley has been fixing the teeth of Florence residents since 1974, when he opened his office on U.S. 42. His associate, Dr. Benjamin Gosnell, joined him last October and has freed Gormley to explore new avenues, such as mini dental implants and appliances to relieve sleep apnea. “The new mini dental implants would require less of a surgical procedure than regular implants, which we do on a regular basis already,” Gormley explained. “Mini implants would take the place of regular ones in cases like anchoring lower dentures.” Sleep apnea is a condition that affects many peo-
ple. If the apnea is not very severe, patients can get some relief from a dental appliance which pulls the jaw forward, thus opening the throat. “The C-PAP machine is generally prescribed for sleep apnea patients, and it works very well,” said Gormley. “However, it is cumbersome, and takes some time to get used to. The dental appliance provides an option, and has been shown to be of value to those patients who just can’t do the C-PAP machine.” Gormley is a family dentist, and he stresses wellness, appearance, function and comfort for an improved quality of life. “We don’t concentrate on volume,” he said. “We work on the whole picture.”

Kenton County Parks and Recreation is asking families to head outside this summer. County parks will offer an extensive lineup of events from May to August to help residents and their kids do just that. “You don’t have to go somewhere far away like the zoo or Kentucky Down Under or Sunrock Farm. You don’t have to go that distance to pay entry fees. Just come to our parks and you get a mini experience for free and in a lot of cases, free lunch,” said Kenton County Parks Programs Coordinator Steve Trauger. This is the 11th season of Trauger’s successful brainchild Wild Wednesdays, which brings a little taste of the local outdoors at 10 a.m. almost every Wednesday throughout the summer, starting May 5 this year. Returning to Wild Wednesdays after missing a few summers is a program about beekeeping in Appalachia and new to the program is Raptor, Inc. of Ohio. Almost every Wild Wednesdays also features free lunch for everyone paid for by local sponsors such as Snappy Tomato’s, the Cherokee Grill and more, Trauger said. Another popular summer parks program, (Almost) Every Other Thursday Science, debuts this year May 13 and will feature new guests including Bob Stewart, who will discuss Kentucky after the Ice Age May 20, and Dendrochronology: Nature’s Time Machines June 3, in which an expert will teach kids how to use trees to learn about the past. Trauger said he is excited about the Second Annual Go Outside (And Don’t Come Home ‘Til the Street Lights Come On) May 15 at Doe Run Lake. The event will feature 25 outdoors vendors and the Northern Kentucky Bluegrass Band, sponsored by Dominach’s Taekwondo. “People will learn about things that they probably didn’t know about or didn’t know was this close,” Trauger explained. “It should just be a heck of a lot of fun.” Local organizations will be on-hand to give out information, demonstrations and allow residents to try out the activity themselves right then and there, Trauger said.
Kenton County Parks & Recreation hosted COSI on Wheels at last year’s Wild Wednesdays. The popular program will debut this year May 5 with the Raptor Rehabilitation of Kentucky.
Almost every Wild Wednesdays also features free lunch for everyone paid for by local sponsors such as Snappy Tomato’s, the Cherokee Grill and more. The Third Annual Skittles Championship of the World will spin into being this summer at Pioneer Park June 19. The championship is open to spinners and all ages to play the game, which Trauger called a “Kentucky thing.”
It’s something anyone can do, Trauger said, explaining a player wraps a string around a wooden top and gives it a pool to knock down as many bowling pins as possible. “We set up seven different tables to represent the continents so you get one pull at North America, Europe, Asia and so one and then you total your seven scores. Whoever has the highest total is champion of the world,” Trauger said. For a full listing of events in Kenton County Parks this summer, visit kentoncounty.org or call 525-PLAY (7529).

Emma Holtkamp, 4, of Ryland Heights, hung onto a frog handed her by Michael Strohm, in the character of wildlife artist John James Audubon, during a program at Middleton-Mills Park last summer. The program, part of the Kenton County Parks’ “Wild Wednesdays” series, featured Strohm and Howard McDaniel portraying George Lehman, a botanical artist who accompanied Audubon in the 1830s.

The diminishing supply of trust vows their spouses make, etc. Almost every sector of society seems to have more than its ordinary supply of untrustworthy members. An atmosphere of distrust or betrayal breeds more. If so many people are untrustworthy and if it’s “just the way human nature is,” then we’re tempted to ask, “Why should I be any different, I’m not as bad as they are?” Eventually we find it more and more difficult to trust anyone: “In God we trust, all others pay cash!” Psychological professionals, such as Erik Erickson, consider the development of trust as extremely important. Erickson placed basic trust first on his famous list of necessary components for developing a healthy personality. We do not grow well unless we receive it from others, and we are
Life’s a pit of insecurity and paranoia without trust. A sense of trust is crucial for both every healthy person and for every thriving society. Yet, bearing in mind the information each day’s news brings, does it not seem trust is eroding? Who do we trust today? There are some athletes who drug-up or fail their spouses, fans, and falsify their records; financial advisors who milk their investors in Ponzi schemes; banks that go down through greed or mismanagement; churches have some pedophile clergy in their ranks or authorities worried about institutional image rather than God’s little ones. There are also government officials and politicians whose chief goal is self-aggrandizement rather than the common good; celebrities who can’t trust in the marriage
not grown up unless we can give it to others. Trust is an act of faith. It engenders a firm belief and confidence in the honesty, integrity, reliability and justice of another person. In a relationship, trusting the other means we believe we can be open, unguarded and undefended before them. When we trust another we believe in the truth of what that person says and does. We believe he or she would never purposely hurt us, gossip about us, nor reject us when we’re down and vulnerable. “You can count on me!” states their coat-of-arms. The opposite of trust is betrayal, and we know how much betrayal can hurt. After a serious or series of betrayals, we distrust the betrayer and often others as well. We don’t want to experience the pain of betrayal over again.
One man recalled often how he felt the day his mother walked away from him forever. Though later he married a wonderful woman deeply devoted to him, he could never quite trust his wife. He saw in the smallest evidences imagined signs of a coming betrayal. Eventually, he drove his wife away and alienated his children by his suspicions – and then used their going as examples of why no one is trustworthy. Distrust can distort our hearts and minds. Trust is not a fixed or unchanging entity any more than life is. It can be given, taken back, diminished or lost – or it can be rebuilt anew. Time is usually involved in building or losing trust. Trust keeps asking something from us long after it begins. It’s an ongoing process, not a one-time payment.
At times there Father Lou can be so many lies, so many Guntzelman cruelties, so Perspectives much uncaring, that the wisest thing to do is to stop trusting another. The other person has proven him or herself totally untrustworthy. To still maintain trust would be disrespecting ourselves. At other times we must move on in our efforts to rebuild trust. Doing so requires risk and courage. It also increases mental and emotional health, as well as our soul’s desire to love and be loved. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@community press.com or P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242.

Everything’s coming up violets this spring
One good turn deserves another. You’ve heard that time and again. But this week it’s really true in my little corner of the world. Frank, my husband, plowed several of our neighbors’ gardens, including the Caudills’ garden. A few days later some of the Caudill kids stopped me as I was walking past their home with grandson, Jack. They ran out to the road and gifted me with several packed baggies of violets, completely stemmed. Now, I don’t know if they did that in reciprocation for Frank plowing their garden, but regardless, their effort far outweighed Frank’s. If you’ve ever
plucked tiny violets from a thick carpet of s p r i n g grass you k n o w what I Rita mean. Heikenfeld TomorRita’s kitchen r o w they’re coming over to make violet jams, jellies and vinegars. If we have time, we’ll pick redbud flowers from the trees and make jelly from those, as well. Redbud jelly doesn’t have the beautiful color that violet does, but it’s a delicious jelly. Redbud flowers
make a beautiful garnish on salads and desserts. You can also eat the seed pods that form. I like to pick them when they’re real slender and young and sauté in a bit of garlic and butter. Just make sure the edible flowers, etc., you ingest have not been sprayed.
Check at 1 hour to see where you’re at here. Let stand about 10 minutes before slicing.
Authentic cottage cheese pie
COURTESY RITA HEIKENFELD
Wild violet jam made by Rita and her neighbors’ kids. 2 cups, loosely packed violet blossoms, without stems Juice of 1 fresh lemon 3 ⁄4 cup water 21⁄2 cups sugar 3 ⁄4 cup water (a second time) 1 pkg. Sure-Jell pectin
Jim Long’s violet jam
Jim is a famous herbalist and proprietor of Long Creek Herb Farm. Check out his Web page, jimlongsgarden.blogspot.com, for just the most fun information, from gardening, to cooking, to health and wellness. (And he’s already found morels …)
Directions: Put 3⁄4 cup water and the violet blossoms in a blender and blend well. Add the lemon juice and notice how the violet paste turns a richer purple as soon as the lemon juice hits the dull purple paste. Add the sugar and blend again to dissolve. Next, stir the package of pectin into the second 3⁄4 cup water in a saucepan and bring it to a boil, continuing to boil hard for 1 minute. Pour the hot pectin into the blender with the violet paste. Blend again and pour into jars or small storage containers. Let cool, then cover with lids and store in the freezer. The jam will turn a deeper purple as it sets up. You can dip out the jam whenever you want some. Check out our Web version at www.communitypress.com for violet jelly and vinegar recipes.

Tuscan pork roast
When pork is on sale at the store, I stock up. Pork can be healthy meat when rubbed with a flavorful garlic, rosemary and olive oil combination. The aroma of this roasting in the oven will tempt everybody to the table. It’s a nice Sunday dinner sans the fuss. 6-8 garlic cloves 1 tablespoon dried rosemary or couple tablespoons fresh Olive oil, start with a couple tablespoons Salt and pepper to taste 3-4 pounds whole pork loin roast In a food processor, combine garlic, rosemary, olive oil and salt and process to a paste. You can do this by hand, too. Rub all over roast, cover and let stand 30 minutes. Roast, uncovered, at 350 about an hour and 20 minutes, or until meat thermometer registers 160 degrees.
It didn’t take long for readers to respond to Ruthann Hein’s request. From a reader who said, “I believe I have the recipe for the cottage cheese pie that your reader was requesting. I grew up in the 1950s and it was a special treat when my mom made it. I still make it, however I use fat- free cottage cheese and Splenda to reduce the fat and calorie content.” 1 pound cottage cheese 1 cup sugar 2 eggs 1 ⁄2 cup milk 1 tablespoon vanilla Combine all ingredients in a blender. Pour in a graham cracker pie shell, sprinkle with cinnamon, and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. More cottage cheese pie recipes: Bev Beckman’s cottage cheese pies are in Web version of this column, as well as Kathy Baier’s, Helen Braun’s and one from Sarah DeMoss. The recipes they are sharing are heirloom ones. Thanks a bunch! Visit www.communitypress.com or call 513-591-6163. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is Macy’s certified culinary professional.

5K raises money for STARS’ kids For 15 years, the STARS program has provided free grief support services for hundreds of local children who have lost loved ones. On April 24, participants in the Strides for STARS 5K Walk and Run can get in a little exercise and a lot of fun, while raising muchneeded funds to support the STARS program. The event starts at 9 a.m. that Saturday at Dixie Heights High School in Edgewood and is open to both team and individual participants. All proceeds from the event will go to support the STARS program. The free service, facilitated by the St. Elizabeth Healthcare Hospice, helps children and their caregivers understand and deal with the grief they feel after someone they love dies.
Registration for the walk day-of begins at 8:15 a.m. with race start set for 9 a.m. The 5K course begins and ends at Dixie Heights High Schools, 3010 Dixie Highway in Edgewood. The cost for the race preregistration is $20 for individuals; $175 for a team of 10; and $60 for a family of four. Registration for the day of the race is $25 for individuals; $225 for a team of 10; and $75 for a family of four. Age-group awards for men and women in both running and walking divisions, as well as awards for teams with the most walkers and the most dollars raised will be given. Participants can register online at http://getmeregistered.com/StridesForStars.
When appropriately prescribed and monitored, medications can help improve the ability to function and enhance quality of life. We all have a responsibility to be actively involved in decisions about our medical care and treatment. One way to do this is to take charge of prescription medications. Here are some pointers to help you manage your medications: • Listen carefully when your health care provider prescribes medication. Health care providers include doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, dentists
Twenty-three students and four faculty from Thomas More College spent their Spring Break volunteering for Habitat for Humanity in Fort Walton Beach, Fla. Students standing from left to right: Andrea Carr (education), Alexandria; Jenna Kramer (business administration), Cincinnati; Florida-based volunteer; Lucy Van Melle (communications) of Fort Mitchell
and pharmacists. Ask questions to learn the name of the drug, its purpose and any potential side effects. • Inform your health care providers of all medicines that you take, including prescription medicines, over the counter remedies, vitamins and herbal supplements. • Always follow your doctor or pharmacist’s instructions and any instructions printed on the medication label. • Pay attention to how often a medication should be taken and if it should or should not be taken with
food or milk products. • Do not stop taking prescription medication until you speak to your doctor, even if you feel better. • Once a year, bring all medications to your doctor or pharmacist. They can help make sure that all your medicines are compatible and weed out anything that has expired. • Try to fill all of your prescription at the same pharmacy so that the pharmacist can check for drug interactions. One in every two Americans takes at least one prescription medicine. If you
are one of them, it is important to know how to use your medication safely and appropriately to get the maximum health benefit.

And what about my family? Who’s going to take care of them? They are my responsibility. I can’t ask them to drop everything to help me.
Who has time for heart surgery? But my doctor explained robotic-assisted surgery. It’s highly effective and minimally invasive. And surgeons at Good Samaritan Hospital are robotic experts, teaching doctors from The Cleveland Clinic and Johns Hopkins. All of this is a major comfort to me and my family. Because while recovery usually takes weeks, with robotics, I’ll be back in days.

How to take your prescriptions correctly According to the American Health Association (2005) as many as 60 percent of older adults take prescription medicines improperly. Some prescription drugs can have adverse effects when combined with overthe-counter or other prescription drugs. Reactions sometimes can be severe resulting in illness and even death. As we age, prescription medications may become necessary to maintain health, recover from an illness or control the symptoms of a chronic disease.
