A taste of home

It started out as a small idea, one friend collecting cans of chili to send to the son of another friend serving in the military in Afghanistan. Now, over 40 pounds of Cincinnati’s finest chili is being sent over to the country’s finest so they can have a little taste of home (and for some perhaps a taste of Cincinnati chili they never had before).

City officials are asking Independence residents to take caution when it comes to door-to-door solicitors. “If somebody is coming doorto-door, No. 1, ask for a permit,” said City Administrator Dan Groth. “If they don’t have a permit, don’t wait five minutes, immediately call the police. Don’t let them in your house. Chances are, they probably don’t have a permit.” Resident Rita Hauke brought the solicitor issue to city council’s attention at the Oct. 4 regular meeting. “Recently there’s been someone selling things door-to-door and they will not take ‘No’ for an answer,” she said, adding that one solicitor selling cleaner began using it on her deck without her permission, leaving a mark. When Hauke asked the solicitor for his permit, he showed her a Kenton County-issued permit. However, Independence city regulations require solicitors to obtain an Independence-specific permit. “They think they’ve covered all the bases, but they haven’t,” Mayor Chris Moriconi said. An Independence solicitor’s permit is very difficult to obtain, requiring a background check and the posting of a $250,000 bond, City Clerk Pat Taney said. “Usually when we give them a copy of the ordinance, they walk out the door and never come

William E. Durr leaves legacy

By Jason Brubaker

Roy Durr doesn’t have to think too hard when asked what words would best describe his father, the late William E. Durr. “He was hard-working and loved getting involved with a lot of things, but he also was a great family man,” said the Independence resident. “He was very well-rounded and he made a positive impact on everyone he came into contact with.” William E. Durr, 94, passed away on Sept. 27 at St. Elizabeth in Florence, and was laid to rest in the Independence Cemetery on Oct. 1. He leaves behind his wife, Virginia and son Roy, as well as three granddaughters, five greatgrandchildren and two greatgreat-grandchildren. “He loved being with his family more than anything,” said Roy, who recalled regular family trips to Lake Cumberland during the summers. “He was busy with everything he did, but he always made time for family.” Durr wore many different hat

in his younger years, working as an insurance agent with the Kentucky Farm Bureau, serving as a founding member of the Kenton County William E. Durr Cooperative Extension Council and Extension District Board, and serving as president of the Highland-Independence Cemetery Board. However, he saved most of his passion for the Kenton County Fair, where he served as director of the board for 24 years. During this time, he helped coordinate the moving of the fair to its current location, as well as expanding it and making it the large, annual event it it today. “Oh man - he loved being involved with the fair,” said Roy. “He would start working on that months before it happened. It didn’t matter what needed to be done – he was always willing to do it if it was going to help the fair.” And even as director of the

board, Roy said his father didn’t mind rolling up the sleeves and getting dirty if he had to. “He did a lot of things that he didn’t have to to, but he did anyways just because of his passion,” he said. “He never wanted to do it for credit or attention.” Indeed, Roy said his father tried to shy away fromt he attention he received when the Kenton County Library named their new Independence Branch after him, dedicating it in 2007. The library is just one of a few building in Northern Kentucky that bear the “Durr” name, including the R.C. Durr YMCA in Burlington named for his brother, and the Steve W. Durr Center of the Kenton County Cooperative Extension Office, which is named after his father. “It’s a huge honor for our family to see his name on that building, because he deserved it for everything he did,” said Roy. “We’ve received a lot of community support from all of the people he’s tocuhed, and we’re so grateful for that. He was a great man and a great father, and he’s going to be missed.”

Boone’s St. Timothy helps Covington center

How to volunteer

A grant from St. Timothy Parish in Union is helping the Notre Dame Urban Education Center in Covington. The center used the grant from the parish to purchase two Wii video game systems, equipment, games and two flat-screen televisions that will serve as physical activities for children. There is no place outside for physical activity at the center with it being in an urban area (East Eighth Street in Covington). Mary Gray, the center’s volunteer coordinator, said Wii has golf, bowling, skiing, running and exercise games. “We were very blessed that they gave us the opportunity to purchase this system so that it’s an integral part of the whole program that we have,” she said. “There is the belief that kids need to be physically fit.” The center is a free place for children in kindergarten through eighth grade to go after school. Gray said the fall and spring program helps children with their homework. She said when their homework is done the center

She said “the premise behind it is if kids in the younger grades are at the appropriate level, they’ll feel good about themselves, they’ll do better in school and they’ll want to stay in school.” The center has a summer program where children receive tutoring. The center opened this past June and currently serves around

30 children. It has computers and a library too. The center is a ministry of the Sisters of Notre Dame’s Kentucky Province, a Roman Catholic religious order for women. The parish awards six grants a year up to $3,000 each to six Northern Kentucky nonprofit groups. The grants must have an outreach component where representatives from the organization visit the parish during its four

weekend Masses. Also, parishioners work with the organization on a project. Lesley Duggan, the parish’s director of outreach, said the center’s application was very well written and specific for the Wii system. “So to be able to support something that was going to be new in the community, we felt was important,” she said. “They also provided sample ... outreach projects that we could do because that’s part of the application. They have to recommend at least three outreach projects.” The center hosted a harvest party Sept. 28 for children. Duggan said 17 volunteers from St. Timothy Parish were to be at the party. The deadline to apply for next year’s grants was Oct. 6.

Erlanger council: familiar look By Jason Brubaker

Eleven incumbents and two newcomers will square off for the twelve seats on the Erlanger city council in the Nov. 2 election. With a rough economy affecting the city’s budget, maintaining the city’s services in the face of adversity is the central theme of many candidates. While the city has taken steps to save money in recent years, including consolidating the emergency dispatch service and merging their police department with Crescent Springs, many candidates feel that more may need to be done as the economy continues to struggle. Incumbent Randy Blankenship, 49, said he wants to look for more ways to consolidate services in the future. Blankenship, a member of the council for six years, 2002-2006 and 2008 to present, is an attorney in Erlanger. “We are presently negotiating to merge dispatch services with Kenton County, and by exploring such opportunities, we can continue to provide quality services but in an efficient manner,” he said. “Erlanger has always rightly prided itself on the high quality of city services, and we need to continue to search for ways to maintain this.” Newcomer James Brown, 40, said he would address the tight budget by looking at more economic development in the city. Brown, a member of the Erlanger Volunteers in Police Service, works for Ohio National Financial Services. “We need to aggressively engage the business community, both existing and potential, offering opportunities for new businesses,” he said. “We need to demonstrate to new businesses our top rate services, unique location and strong welcoming community. ”Incumbent Kevin Burke, 53, said he wants to ensure the city is spending properly, given the economic times. Burke, a member of the council since 2000, works for AC Trucking. “We need to really work hard at keeping our streets up to par, because once you get behind, it costs more

and more,” he said. “We also need to make sure our police and fire department are getting what they need, because that’s what makes our city special.” Incumbent Tom Cahill, 42, also said that keeping up with road work is a priority for the council. Cahill has been on council since 2006, and works for Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. “(Roads) have been addressed, but we need oversight to ensure that we are getting the most for the money we’re putting out,” he said. “But I’m proud of the unique ways the leadership team has been able to think outside the box to maintain essential services in these trying times.” Incumbent John, “JD” Dunhoft, 58, pointed out that the city did raise the payroll tax this year to help maintain city services, and other tough decisions may be in order. Dunhoft, a member of the council since 1994, works for U.S. Bank. “We did that to help offset the costs of fixing our streets and to help out budget,” he said. “It wasn’t a popular idea, but the council had to do something with the economic situation we’re all in.” Incumbent Keith Henry, 58, said he will push to get new businesses into the city. Henry, a member of the council for 16 years, currently serves on the city’s public works and revenue generation committees. “We need to attract new businesses to our industrial park and bring more hometown businesses into our smaller shopping areas,” he said. “This will help the city have a better tax base.” Incumbent Bill Howard, 57, said he’d like to see the city look for other ways to raise revenue besides raising taxes. Howard, a member of the council from 1993 to 2002 and re-elected in 2005, works for TANK. “I’m not totally opposed to raising taxes, I am opposed to raising them beyond the necessary amount that is needed to keep services going,” he said. “We need to be sensitive to every person in the community and their economic situation.” Newcomer, Stephen Knipper, 40, said the city needs a new perspective

when looking at their budget and the growth of the city. Knipper works at Mercy Hospital and is also a member of the Northern Kentucky Board of Adjustments. “Poor money management will plague our city, and the solution is not to raise payroll taxes and property taxes,” he said. “Our city needs a new focus, and I have a plan to grow responsibly while keeping our heritage.” Incumbent Vicki Kyle said the city could look into tax incentives as a way to attract more businesses to the city to help the budget. Kyle, a member of the council since 1996, is a teacher at St. Henry District High School. “We need to encourage more businesses to open in Erlanger, and we need to help them in any way we can,” she said. “The budget is extremely important, and it takes planning and working together to make sure we managing the citizens’ money well.” Incumbent Shane Longshore, 30, said he’s been proud of the city’s efforts throughout a tough economy, and wants to see that continue. Longshore, in his first term on council, works for Siemens Healthcare. “Our city has repeatedly showed a strong sense of fiscal responsibility in all that we do,” he said. “I will continue to limit spending while still providing our residents with the great services we have come to know.” Incumbent Corine Pitts, 48, said she wants to look at unfunded mandates that are passed down to local governments and can hurt their budgets. Pitts, a member of council since 2006, works for the Diocese of Covington. “We are trying to keep our presence known in Frankfort as much as possible to keep them from passing more legislation that siphon money from the cities,” she said. “We’re also currently working on getting a unified tax form for Northern Kentucky to prevent the state from taking it over, because if this happens, cities could lose money.” Incumbent Renee Skidmore, 56, said she wants to see more citizen involvement and better communi-

cation with the residents. Skidmore, a member of the council since 2006, works for the United States Postal Service. “Too many times we announce meetings, taxes or ordinances...only to have citizens later say they never knew about it,” she said. “We’ve worked diligently on the newsletter and city Web site, but there is always room for improvement.” Incumbent Patty Suedkamp, 65, said the city needs to continue to push economic development as they look to grow the budget. A member of the council since 1998, Suedkamp currently serves on the finance committee and is a member of the Erlanger Volunteers in Police Service. “No one likes taxes raised, but our job as a city is to provide the best services we can to the residents, and sometimes that requires tough decisions,” she said. “But I do think the city is on the right track, and we just need to keep working hard to make sure the city is in good shape.” Incumbent Jim Burger originally filed for the election, but has since moved out of the city and will not be running. Mayor Tom Rouse will run unopposed.

Calvary Christian School’s new expansion has provided a spacious cafeteria, three new classrooms and a larger library for its students. The expansion was made possible by donations from parents, the community, and Calvary Baptist Church. Construction Project Manager Tyson Hermes and School Administrator Ed Ryan take a walk around the new cafeteria.

Expansion provides cafeteria, classrooms

By Regan Coomer

Calvary Christian Schools’ 400 students are lunching in style. Newly-opened this school year is a 6,500-square-feet cafeteria addition, the creation of three classrooms in the old cafeteria space and a 500-foot-expansion to the school library. “The way the school was set up before, the cafeteria squeezed in 90 to 100 kids at a time,” explained Tyson Hermes, the manager of the more than $700,000 project started in late April 2010. Lunchtime scheduling was a “nightmare” and required five lunch periods - sometimes as late as 1 p.m., said School Administrator Ed Ryan, a problem considering students are out of school by 3 p.m. With the new addition, which could in a pinch comfortably seat

every student at the same time, students now have three lunch periods and can eat in a timely manner, Hermes said. “It’s an unbelievable room,” Ryan said. The project was made possible by a legacy left by Susan Bobzien, a member of the Calvary Baptist Church. The legacy was earmarked specifically for school improvements and expansions. Parents and community members also donated or donated the funding needed for brand-new kitchen equipment. “We truly know God is blessing us with the gifts that were provided and made it possible for us,” Ryan said. “We’re very thankful for that.” Prior to the expansion, three of Calvary’s classrooms took place in trailers outside. Students had to go back inside the main building if they needed to use the restroom,

which could get very inconvenient in the wintertime, Ryan said. “Our three goals for this project was to get all of the kids inside, build a bigger cafeteria and kitchen and a bigger library. We did it all,” Hermes said. The legacy came just in time, Ryan said. “The trailers were getting old. We were getting to a point where we needed to do something.” Now the first and second-grade students learn in spacious classrooms. “I’ve heard no complaints,” Ryan laughed. “The teachers are thankful for what they have. It’s neat for a teacher to get a new classroom.” The next step for Calvary could be coordinating Calvary Baptist Church satellite services in the new lunchroom, which can also serve as a multi-purpose room. “It’s a great opportunity. It’s a win-win for all of us,” Ryan said.

The Kentucky High School Athletic Association released a draft football realignment for the 2011-14 seasons Monday, Oct. 4. The information related to the has been posted on the KHSAA web site at

lignment/20112014/.

The Northern Kentucky districts are as follows: Class 1A, District 4:

Undefeated Bulldogs focus on improving By James Weber

The Holmes High School football team has had a lot of talent over the years. A winning attitude has caught up with the talent this year as the Bulldogs have started 6-0 for the second straight year. The Bulldogs go to Dixie Heights Friday, Oct. 8, and try to avenge a 21-12 loss last year. “They play hard and they play together,” said Holmes head coach Stephen Lickert. “They’re focusing on getting better each week and trying to make each other as good as they can be.” Lickert, in his fourth year at Holmes, directed the Bulldogs to a 9-3 record last year and a second-round loss to Lexington Catholic in the Class 4A playoffs. He said a strong senior group has been the driving force for the Bulldogs to get to this point.

“A lot of kids want to do well, but winning comes from hard work,” Lickert said. “We have a group of veterans who understood that. The senior class has really stepped up for us. A lot of these kids have been with us for three years. They have stuck with the program and totally bought in.” Lickert said a prime example has been senior lineman Idrees Marshall, who switched to offense this year after playing mostly defensive line. “We told him for us to be good, you have to be on the offensive line,” Lickert said. “He said ‘I’ll do whatever it takes to win.’” Among the senior leaders are quarterback Jesse Jenson, linebacker Tommy Courtney and running backs Damian Oden and Tyrique Simpson. Jenson has completed 50of-79 passes for 761 yards and 10 touchdowns with zero interceptions. Dasean Peterson has 420

receiving yards and six of the scores. Jenson has 261 yards and six TDs on the ground. Oden has 552 yards and six scores. Greg Clemons had 329 yards and three TDs. Holmes has allowed just 126 yards on defense per game while gaining nearly 400 a contest on offense. Holmes will have its stiffest test of the season this Friday, playing at Dixie Heights 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 8. “We focus on the team we’re playing that week,” Lickert said. “Our goal is to play our best game every week.” Holmes will host Scott Oct. 15 and Cincinnati Withrow Oct. 22 before playing at Harrison County in the regular season finale Oct. 29. That will also be the 4A district finale and potentially for the district title Harrison has yet to play a seeding game. Holmes was ranked fourth in the Sept. 27 Associated Press state poll in 4A.

Saints football ranked 9th in country Following its 42-3 win over Thiel College on Saturday, Oct. 2, and improving to 4-0, the Thomas More College football moved up in both Division III Top-25 rankings and earned its highest ranking in 21 year of football. The Saints received 615 points in the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Top-25 and are ranked No. 9 in the nation. The No. 9 ranking is the highest in the football program's history as the Saints' previous best ranking was No. 10 where they were ranked for four straight weeks to end the 2009 season. Thomas More also moved up in the internet web site's Top-25 and is ranked No. 10 after receiving 356 points. This is the sixth time in 21 seasons that the Saints

have opened the season with four straight wins. So far in 2010, Thomas More has averaged 40.8 points per game while its opponents have scored 14.0 points per game. The Saints are averaging 377.8 yards of total offense (248.5 ypg rush/129.2 ypg pass), while holding their opposition to 252.8 yards per game offensively (75.5 ypg rush/177.2 ypg pass). The Saints have a plus five turnover ratio and have sacked the quarterback 21 times this season, while giving up only six sacks. The Saints return to action this Saturday, Oct. 9, when they travel to Grove City, Penn., to play Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC) foe Grove City College. Kickoff is scheduled for 2 p.m. at Robert E. Thorn Field.

Colonels enjoy victories at regional golf By James Weber


Holy Cross senior Brandon Daniel eyes his putt during the Region 7 championships Sept. 28 at Boone Links.

Joe Fredrick had struggled in recent weeks. But with extra practice and instruction from local coaching legend Doug Martin, the Covington Catholic senior golfer brought his best game at the right time. Fredrick shot a 75 to lead the Colonels to the Region 7 championship Sept. 27 at Boone Links. Cov Cath shot a team score of 317 to beat Ryle and Cooper by four shots. The Colonels won their first regional title since 2006 and will play in the state tournament Oct. 8-9 in Bowling Green. “It’s awesome because (Ryle) has won it the past three years,” Fredrick said. “Losing the past three years and coming back to win it is a great feeling.” Fredrick, whose best lifetime round is 72, finished with a flourish by sinking a 50-foot putt from the fringe on 18. He knew the battle for the team title was close at the time. “I started getting chills,” he said. “I thought ‘this could be the last putt of your career, make it count,’

and I hit it and I looked up and thought it was going in. It was amazing.” Fredrick worked a lot with Martin on swing flaws last week. “I practiced my tail off for three days,” Fredrick said. “I knew it was my last round ever. I was coming inside on my swing, so he put an alignment thing down and I hit about 300 balls. It took me Saturday and Sunday to get used to it and my practice round here I shot 76 so I felt comfortable.” Austin Beck was third individually with a 78 for Cov Cath. Alex Scanlon and Josh Moorman shot 82 and Andrew Kendall. Scanlon had been the conference champion the week before, illustrating the balance the Colonels have in their lineup. “We may not have someone who can shoot a low score every time, but we have five kids who can put up decent scores every time, which today put us over the top,” head coach Rob Schneeman said. “We have 16 all through the program, they push each other through the whole year. The 16 that are in the program

deserve a lot of credit for today.” Dixie Heights senior Jason Rose grabbed an individual berth into the state tournament after leading the red Colonels with an 80. Dixie finished fourth overall. Rose had to play off with two Cooper High School players for two spots. He had to wait more than a half hour for Cooper and Ryle to play off for a team berth into the state tourney. If Cooper had won the playoff, Rose would have earned his berth automatically because Ryle only had two players at 80 or better. On the first hole, Rose had to scramble and make a 10-foot par putt after his opponents were on the green for birdie putts. On the second hole, Rose nailed a 25-foot birdie after an opponent hit a shot in the water. Rose had five medalist honors and two third-place showings in tourneys. It is his first state tourney. “It’s awesome. I’m thrilled that I could finally do this,” Rose said. “I felt I played well. I hit the ball really good. I hit some bad

Carly Metzger and Ali Cheesman tied for fourth at 82. Angela Pugliano shot 83, Jill Edgington 85 and Sydney Swingos 88. Simon Kenton’s Morgan Larison shot 81 to finish second and she will play in the state tournament as well as the Pandas Oct. 5-6 in Bowling Green.

United Way lends helping hand for better lives The greatest leaders of our time started somewhere else. A CEO staring out the glass of her high rise corner office, a pro athlete staring into the eye of a viable opponent, a politician staring at a hotly contended race – they each likely arrived at their place in life thanks to a commitment to hard work and a little help. The same is true for so many of our neighbors, family and friends. Some of us want to be small business leaders. Others long to have happy, healthy families to love and care for. Our community’s youngest students think about the things

dreams are made of – growing up to be astronauts, firefighters and artists. We each aspire to greatness, and someRich Tiberi times we need a helping hand to Community reach the next Recorder rung on our ladguest der of destiny. columnist For so many people in Northern Kentucky, United Way is the hand that helps guide people to the good life. United Way kicked off its annual campaign on Aug. 25. Our

region is stretching toward a brave goal – $3,840,000 and 1,500 new donors who believe in education, income and health. Every single new supporter who Lives United will help us reach out to more people and impact more lives. Your investment in United Way isn’t just a donation that comes out of your paycheck every other week. It’s a commitment to ensuring everybody has the building blocks for a better life. Your commitment means more children will succeed in school and life, more families will achieve financial stability and more people will have good health.

Your contribution will help Northern Kentucky children learn leadership skills in Boy and Girl Scouts. Your investment, when pooled with other investments from the community, will help people fight foreclosure and get training for better jobs with full benefits, thanks to programs at Welcome House of Northern Kentucky. The dollars you give will support Senior Services of Northern Kentucky and help a senior stay home and live independently. I ask you to join me in the mission to LIVE UNITED. By making a contribution to United Way every two weeks, you are able to help propel someone closer to their dream – a dream that will

ripple out and benefit the entire community. Investing in our neighbors, family and friends will help us create a brighter future for people living in Newport, Burlington, Erlanger and elsewhere. Our communities will grow stronger and more families and individuals will be able to aspire to even bigger and better dreams. Who knows, one of those people could become our region’s next great leader. And they’d get there thanks to your support and the work of United Way. Rich Tiberi of Taylor Mill is a senior vice president at Fifth Third Bank Northern Kentucky and is also serving as chair of the 2010 United Way campaign in the Northern Kentucky area.

Reds success more fun as a child

Knowing the Cincinnati Reds had a chance to clinch the National League Central Division title with a victory on the night of Sept. 28, my wife and I dressed our 10-month-old daughter in her Reds sleeper that evening. We tuned into the game on television just in time for the bottom of the ninth to see Jay Bruce hit his division-winning home run to center field. (Yes, that late my daughter was still awake.) Though she’ll be too young to remember this season, the Reds making it back to baseball’s postseason for the first time in 15 years reminds me of when they last won the World Series. The year was 1990 and I’ll never be able to enjoy a team’s postseason run as much as I did then. The reason is simple: Back then I had the innocence of youth. I was 11 years old going on 12. I was a sixth-grader with very few responsibilities and worries. And I’m glad I was that young to enjoy the Reds championship that year. If I had been older, it wouldn’t have been as much fun. There’s something special and genuine about youth. Though I never attended any of the 10 postseason games the Reds played that year, I followed it intently. I probably even kept

score of the games as I watched them on television. Back then Major League Baseball still played some of its postseason Paul games in the McKibben afternoon before had Reporter’s everything to be on prime Notebook time television. Game 2 and Game 3 of the National League Championship Series were afternoon games. I’m sure as soon as I got home from school, the television immediately was turned onto those games. Baseball should have more afternoon playoff games. I’m sure it wouldn’t make as much television revenue but the sport would be more accessible to its most important audience – youth. Other memories of that 1990 Reds October include my mom taking my brother and I to White Castle to celebrate the Reds winning the World Series. We kept each edition of The Cincinnati Enquirer that chronicled each game. We had T-shirts for each title the Reds won that year (NL Western Division, National League pennant and the World Series).

For Halloween that year I dressed as a Reds fan. I wore a red World Series champions T-shirt with a small broom around my neck. For Halloween that year I dressed as a Reds fan. I wore a red World Series champions Tshirt with a small broom around my neck. The broom of course represented the Reds sweeping the Oakland Athletics in the World Series. My face was painted red and white. This year, I’ll try to watch parts of the games. And I’ll continue to think of my maternal grandparents who followed the Reds with more loyalty than I did as a child. I know they are already celebrating from above. And if it’s a true Reds October, maybe I’ll bust out another Reds fan Halloween costume for myself as I take my daughter trick-ortreating for the first time. (She’s going as a red-and-black lady bug.) Go Reds. Paul McKibben covers Boone County for The Community Recorder. You can reach him at or by phone at 859-578-1057.

Steve and Mary Catherine Brooks stand beside the meat counter in their store, Brooks Meats in Walton. The couple celebrated 25 years at this location in May.

Brooks Meats celebrates 25 years By Patricia A. Scheyer Community Recorder Contributor

When Mary Catherine and Steve Brooks bought a small meat locker on Main Street in Walton in 1985, they hoped it would eventually be the store of their life, but the future is rarely written where people can see it. So when the couple purchased the store and a slaughterhouse up the road, they set out to cut meat. Mary Catherine is the daughter of a meat cutter who owned Heringer Meats in Covington. Steve had two other butcher businesses before buying the one in Walton. In May Brooks Meats celebrated its 25th anniversary. “We are like an old-fashioned butcher shop where you can come in and custom order your meats,” said Mary Catherine. “When we started, we had no idea it would be this big.” The shop started with

2,500 square feet of space, and expanded to its present 15,000 square feet, which includes a restaurant that Steve and Mary Catherine lease out. Steve attributes their growth to hard work. “We have nine employees, and we are blessed to have them,” he said. “We’ve had some very hard times, but we made it work together.” Along with their three children, Steve and Mary Catherine have a thriving business in Walton, which they term a friendly town. Their store is known for processing and cooking its own meat, and some of its specialties are pulled pork, chili, goetta and roasted meats. “Steve has his own recipes for a lot of our specialties,” said Mary Catherine. “We aren’t ready to retire yet. Visit our website, at, or just come one down and visit us,” she said.

Colonial Cottage employees Kim Reusch and Pat Sandman show off some of the chili collected that will be sent to Sandman's son, Eric, who is stationed in Afghanistan.

Sending a taste of home By Jason Brubaker

Sometime in early October, 32year-old Eric Sandman is going to receive his mail with the rest of the troops in Afghanistan. There’s likely to be letters and cards from loved ones filled with the latest news from home and all of the goings-on since he was first deployed in May. But there will also be a large, nondescript, fairly heavy box too. And it’s that box that may just make his day...or week. “I can’t wait until he gets that - I’m just waiting to hear his reaction,” said his mother, Pat, who lives in Erlanger. “But it’s safe to say he’s going to be thrilled!” That’s because that box will contain a little taste of home for Eric and his fellow troops...specifically chili. Cans and cans of every type of chili imaginable, from store-bought cans to cans donated from local businesses like Dixie Chili and Skyline. “He has always loved chili - I think he could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner when he was here,” said Pat. “So this is a way to give him and all of his troops a little taste of home while they’re away.” The chili drive was started by Kim Reusch, Pat’s friend and co-worker at Erlanger’s Colonial Cottage. A member of the Ladies Auxiliary VFW Post 6095 in Latonia, Reusch said she is always on the lookout for ways to support the soldiers, and just hap-

Chili Drive

Donations to the chili drive can be dropped off at the Colonial Cottage, located at 3140 Dixie Highway in Erlanger. Monetary donations are also welcome to help cover shipping costs. Checks should be made payable to the Ladies Auxiliary VFW Post 6095. For more information, contact the Colonial Cottage at 341-4498. pened to hear Sandman, a Military Policeman in the Army, mentioning how much her son loves chili. “I just thought it would be neat to send some chili over to him and his troops, so we got a few cans together, and then I asked some people if they wanted to donate some so we could send a good amount,” said Reusch. “Before I knew it, we had all kinds of people donating cans, and we saw this was going to get bigger than we ever planned.” The drive caught the attention of Colonial Cottage owner Matt Grimes, who began donating some cans himself and also working with the managers at the Erlanger locations of Dixie Chili and Skyline to secure some donations. “I just thought it was great to see one employee organizing all of this to help the family of another employee, just out of the goodness of her heart,” he said. “It’s really cool to see the support we’ve received for this, and I’m just glad to be a part of it.” With the cans of chili piling up, Reusch next used some of her connec-

tions with the VFW to secure a monetary donation to cover shipping costs for the first package, which contained close to 40 pounds worth of chili. Even as she was organizing the first shipment, Reusch said she still couldn’t believe how big the drive had become. She said she mentioned the drive to a few of her regular customers one morning, and within about 30 minutes, she had 15 cans given to her. “When this started, I just figured it was a way to help Pat’s son,” said Reusch. “Pat didn’t even know about it at first. But it just kept getting bigger and bigger, and it’s been great.” Indeed, Pat said she was overwhelmed when she first caught word of the chili drive. She said her family had sent Eric some cans in various care packages, but never imagined so many people would help out to send chili to all of his fellow troops. “I was blown away that people would do this - it’s unbelievable,” she said. “I know Eric and the other soldiers will love it, and it just means so much to our family to see people doing what they can to support the troops, even if it is just donating a can of chili.” With the early success of the drive, Reusch said she hasn’t even thought a lot about the future of the drive. “I guess we’ll just keep this going as long as we can,” she said. “People have been so generous, and we just hope that continues. Anything we can to do show we care for our troops, we’re glad to do it.”

Courage is doing the good we’re afraid to do Courage doesn’t always involve brawn and muscles. It does involve a strength of character and integrity. It causes us to reach for rightness even in the face of fear, disapproval or overwhelming odds. The word courage arose from the Latin word cor, meaning heart. To have courage, “you gotta have heart,” as an old song lyricized. Courage is the virtue crucified in the middle between two thieves – cowardice and rashness. Cowardice is running away from all dangers and hard times; rashness is facing danger in a careless way that masks self-centered motives. In the past, courage was chiefly associated with men. It was seen in the risks they took during battle to defeat an enemy, help a fellow soldier, or defend innocent people. Now, with a better understanding of courage, we don’t hesitate to attribute it in various bold and subtle ways to women as well. To be courageous involves three general characteristics: (a) a willful and intentionally chosen act despite the presence of fear;

(b) it involves substantial danger, difficult, or risk to the person choosing Father Lou it; (c) it is Guntzelman primarily motivated Perspectives to bring about a noble good or morally worthy purpose. How many kinds of courage are there? Three types are acknowledged. Physical courage. It is overcoming the fear of physical harm or possible death for the sake of a noble goal such as defense of country or our family, or to save someone from danger or criminal threats. For example, we hear in the news of a man or woman risking their life to pull someone from a burning car. Recently a captain posthumously received the Medal of Honor for risking his life while placing his wounded men in a helicopter. Moral courage. This is overcoming the fear of social ostracism or rejection in order to maintain ethical

integrity. For example, the history of civil rights recalls the day Rosa Parks, a southern black woman, took a seat in the front of a bus when a prejudiced society said “her place” was in the back. This type of moral courage can occur in many different situations. It happens whenever an individual stands up to someone with power over him or her, and does so for the greater good. The result is the risk of social disapproval from others. Psychological, or vital, courage. Within the past 150 years a third kind of courage has been recognized by psychologists. It means overcoming the fear of losing one’s psyche (the feeling that one is disintegrating within – colloquially, losing it.) It can occur as we struggle against the fear of disintegration or death while trying to achieve greater wholeness and mental health. It is the kind of courage demonstrated by an addict overcoming his or her addiction; or a person abused as a child working to overcome deep psychological fears to become a loving and productive adult.

Why focus on courage today? In “The Psychology of Courage,” edited by Pury & Lopez, it’s stated: “It is increasingly difficult to face an unpredictable future without being able to call on courage if needed.” Over the years I have been honored to meet many people of courage. They weren’t publicly known because for us ordinary people our most noteworthy victories occur within, out of view of camera, newsprint and applause. At times we may be the only one who knows that they exist. To all these wonderful and victorious people I apply the following anonymous quotation: “Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow.’”

There’s a chicken in every pot pie recipe I know whenever a request comes in for anything about Shillito’s recipes served in their form e r restaurants, it spawns a huge flood of “can you find Rita this recipe, Heikenfeld or that?” So I Rita’s kitchen wasn’t surprised when Irene Johnson’s original request for Shilllito’s chicken pot pie opened the floodgates.

Shillito’s individual

chicken pot pie

I was so happy to get this recipe from Amelia reader Mary Frank. “I’m glad I could help,” she said. Me, too! This recipe comes from one printed in the Enquirer a while back by Jeff Pipes, former Lazarus Interior Design Studio manager.

Cook frozen peas and carrots and drain. Put chicken into small casserole and add veggies. Pour sauce over and bake at 350 degrees until bubbly. Serve with pastry top over casserole dish. (I’m assuming you bake the pastry separate). Makes one pie.


⁄8 cup frozen peas ⁄4 cup frozen sliced carrots 6 cooked pearl onions 1 ⁄2 cup (3 oz.) diced cooked chicken – 1⁄2-inch to 3 ⁄4-inch chunks 3 ⁄4 cup sauce 1 to 2 oz. pastry, to cover pie 3

Pot pie sauce:

3 tablespoons margarine 11⁄2 tablespoons flour 1 cup chicken stock/broth Dash pepper Melt margarine, add flour and mix well. Add stock, cook and stir until

Hate your Ugly Tub?

creamy. Add pepper.

Shillito’s Café sandwich (Seven Hills sloppy Joes)

I have researched this recipe for years and found that the original spice mixture used in the sandwich was a commercial one and, alas, can’t be found anymore. If you remember the sandwich as being a bit spicy, go ahead and add some chili powder. 21⁄2 pounds ground beef 1 ⁄2 cup chopped onion 1 ⁄4 cup chopped bell pepper Salt and pepper 1 tablespoon dry mustard 1 tablespoon cider vinegar or more to taste 13⁄4 cup ketchup 2 tablespoons sugar or more to taste Brown meat and add everything else. Simmer about 30 minutes or more. Serve with a dollop of Cheese Whiz on top.

peanut butter fudge

For the lady in Milford who wanted a peanut butter fudge “without marshmallow cream.” She told me her mom had a recipe for just such a fudge, but she can’t find it. This is from “Cook’s Illustrated,” my food “bible.”

Now, my own recipe like this is almost identical, except it doesn’t have baking soda and I just melt everything in a pan and pour it into a sprayed 8-by8 square pan. (It’s an easy and good one – my grandson, Will, made the chocolate version of the fudge and won a blue ribbon at the fair). I’m thinking, though, that the baking soda is smart addition, as that is what probably makes the texture of this fudge so good. Makes about 21⁄2 pounds. This fudge will change texture and become drier the longer it is stored. Store the fudge, tightly wrapped in plastic, in a cool place for up to two weeks or in the freezer for three months. If frozen, allow ample time to let it reach room temperature before cutting. 18 oz. peanut butter chips 1 ⁄2 teaspoon baking soda 1 ⁄8 teaspoon salt 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk 1 tablespoon vanilla extract Cut 12-inch length extrawide heavy-duty aluminum foil; fold edges back to form 71⁄2-inch width. With folded sides facing down, fit foil securely into bottom and up sides of 8inch-square baking pan, allowing excess to over-

hang pan sides. Spray foil with nonstick cooking spray. Toss peanut butter chips, baking soda, and salt in medium heatproof bowl until baking soda is evenly distributed. Stir in sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Set bowl over 4-quart saucepan containing 2 cups simmering water. Stir with rubber spatula until chips are almost fully melted and few small pieces remain, two to four minutes. Remove bowl from heat and continue to stir until chips are fully melted and mixture is smooth, about two minutes. Transfer fudge to prepared pan and spread in even layer with spatula. Refrigerate until set, about two hours. Remove fudge from pan using foil and cut into squares. Double batch: Line 13 by 9-inch pan with two sheets of foil placed perpendicular to each other and double amounts of all ingredients. In Step 2, use large heatproof bowl and Dutch oven containing 4 cups simmering water.

N. Kentucky to read ‘A Pearl in the Storm’


On the square

The Bacchanalian Society had their fall gathering on Fountain Square recently. From Keystone Bar and Grill in Covington was Amy Cochran with a serving of Lovin Spoonful.


“And if I don’t make it, I love you guys.” This was a video entry in what may have been one of the last communications with author and adventurer Tori Murden McClure as her attempt to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean was in jeopardy when she encountered a hurricane. What would make you row 3,200 miles solo across the Atlantic in a 23-footlong boat with no communication for 14 weeks? What made Tori Murden McClure do it? Her voyage, one of selfdiscovery, adventure and survival, is the topic of this year’s Northern Kentucky One Book One Community selection “A Pearl in the Storm.” A series of book discussions to address these questions will take place at various library branches across Northern Kentucky. To participate, pick up a copy of “A Pearl in the Storm” at any library in Boone, Campbell, Grant or Kenton counties. Read the book then attend one of the discussions to hear others’ thoughts on why McClure embarked on this journey


Tori Murden McClure in her vessel “The American Pearl.” She was the first woman to make a solo crossing of the Atlantic Ocean by rowboat. She wrote about her experience in the memoir “A Pearl in the Storm: How I Found My Heart in the Middle of the Ocean.” and what might inspire you to embark on a similar adventure. Participation in book discussions is free and registration is not required. Northern Kentucky libraries are hosting book discussions on “A Pearl in the Storm” throughout the month of October and early November. Book discussions culminate in a visit from author Tori Murden McClure at libraries in Boone, Campbell, Grant and Kenton

counties Wednesday, Nov. 3, through Saturday, Nov. 6. Book discussion dates are as follows in Kenton County: • Mary Ann Mongan Library, 502 Scott Blvd., Covington Tuesday, Oct. 19, at 1 p.m. • Erlanger Branch, 401 Kenton Lands Road, Erlanger Wednesday, Oct. 20, at 7 p.m.

Art Off Pike arts fair held Oct. 9-10 Covingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Annual Urban Street Arts Fair, Art Off Pike, is in its sixth year and has attracted over 60 artists, businesses and non-profit arts organizations for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festivities. The event takes place in the heart of the Covington Arts District on Pike and 7th Streets, between Madison and Washington Streets on Saturday Oct. 9 from 10 a.m. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 4 p.m. Last year, Art Off Pike attracted 90 vendors and 1,500 visitors to the event. The festival was originally created by the Westside Action Coalition Neighborhood Association in support of the City of Covingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newly created arts district. It aligns with the Covingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals to support artists by

helping them sell their work in a mutually fun and supportive environment. This is a great opportunity to support local artists, as well as share the experience with family and friends, by giving a unique Christmas gift as the holiday season rapidly approaches. Approximately 50 booths are designated to sell original artwork, paintings, jewelry, sculpture and pottery with prices ranging from $30 $500. Leah Dodson manages the eventâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s area called Picassoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Playground, where nonprofit Art & Culture organizations such as The Carnegie Visual & Performing Arts Center, Baker

all together.â&#x20AC;? Art Off Pike has also scheduled 12 different musicians to play throughout the day on assigned locations in the area. This diverse event is fun, relaxed and enjoyable for all in attendance, even your four-legged friends; this year, Art Off Pike is Pet Friendly. Pet portraitist, Seth Hand Barnes ( will have a booth to sell his work and consult with interested customers. Also, The Kenton County Animal Shelter will be in attendance; an information booth will be set up to answer your questions on animal adoption, care giving and helpful tips in raising a healthy happy pet. The event, scheduled for Satur-

Hunt Art & Cultural Center and Behringer Crawford Museum, offer booths of free art activities for children of all ages. My Nose Turns Red Youth Circus will offer hula hooping and juggling lessons throughout the day. The Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center (The Carnegie) will be participating again this year in Picassoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Playground by making bubble wands. Alissa Paasch, Education Director at The Carnegie, says â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bubble Wands are fun for the entire family. We will provide materials for you to shape, design and test your own bubble wand creations. Art off Pike is so important for the community; art is what brings us

day, October 9th 10-4pm, is one of six events that comprise Full Spectrum, Covingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monthlong celebration of the Arts. Art Off Pike is supported by Full Spectrum, the City of Covington and the Center for Great Neighborhoods, a non-profit organization based in Covington that works to equip residents with the tools and resources they need to create healthy, thriving neighborhoods, a valuable partner organization to the City. The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, supports Center for Great Neighborhoods of Covington with state tax dollars and federal funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Kenton parks host Haunted Halloween Trail Oct. 15 Kenton County Parks & Recreation is excited to announce the return of the Haunted Halloween Trail on Friday, Oct. 15, to be held at Middleton-Mills Park, on Mills Road between Taylor

Mill and Independence. On Friday, from 7 until 11 p.m., it's the Haunted Halloween Trail, presented by Jude's Custom Exhaust Auto Repair and Towing. It's a quarter-mile of torch-lit

trail through the woods. Ghosts, goblins, witches, and a frightful variety of other Halloween characters, creatures, and displays will inhabit the Trail. Snappy Tomato Pizza

will be on hand selling pizza slices as well. There is a shelterhouse at the end of the Haunted Trail where survivors may wish to sample complimentary Orange Drool (donated by McDonald's) served by Ghostesses. Then take a hayride shuttle back to your vehicles. Everyone in line by 10:30 pm will be able to walk the trail but the gate at the entrance to the park will be closed at 10:30 p.m. The parks department still needs adult volunteers to help make this year's Haunted Trail scarier than ever. Kid haunters with an adult are okay but must stay on task. Even if you

don't want to haunt the trail, there's still plenty to do. Volunteers are also needed to direct traffic, decorate the shelterhouse at the end of the trail, act as security, etc. Call Steve Trauger at 859- 525-PLAY (7529) for more info. The Haunted Halloween Trail is free to attend and enjoy but please remember to bring a donation of nonperishable food or personal care items for Senior Services of Northern Kentucky.
