Scouts pull together for the pack By Regan Coomer

Cub Scout Pack 766 is spiffed up and ready to make a difference in the community after a successful uniform drive generated enough money to outfit the pack. The uniforms will go to any new Scout or any current scout who doesn’t have a uniform, said Pack Master Brian Pleiman, adding once a member has outgrown his

uniform, he’s asked to give it back to the 47-member pack. “If they give it back to the pack after they’ve outgrown it, the uniforms will last three and a half years. If they all give them back in good condition, it could last another three years,” he said. The pack was able to purchase more than 50 used uniforms and had many uniforms donated from the community, Pleiman said. The uniform drive took place after some families said they couldn’t afford to keep their son in the pack, Pleiman said, explaining that a scout uniform could run about $32, plus several activities around $5, and with growing and/or multiple boys in the pack, it can get expensive. “It’s really tough out there right now. We don’t want a boy to want to join and not be able to,” Pleiman said. “There were too many of them last year.” Last year, the pack had about 70 boys join, but 20 didn’t show up again due to the cost, Pleiman later found out. “We held the drive to make sure all boys had the opportunity to feel like a part of the scouts,” Pack mom Andrea Holland said. “Even though it’s not required, if they don’t have a uniform, some of them feel left out. We didn’t


Cub Scout Pack 766 welcomed 16 new members Thursday Oct. 21 and celebrated the success of the pack’s uniform drive; so many uniforms were donated that they’ll last the pack for several years.

Pack mom Carolyn Wilson has two sons in Pack 766. Wilson said the uniform drive was a big help to keeping her children in the pack. “They’re really good at working with people if they need help,” she said. “They’re trying to help you in any way they can.”

Pleiman said as a former scout himself, he knows how important it is to make sure boys stay involved in the pack. “Boy Scouts is growing because parents, if they’re going to spend money, they want to spend it on something worthwhile. “Scouts teaches discipline, teaches honesty, teaches integrity and does something positive for the community.”

Holy Cross rallies around principal By Regan Coomer

When you’re a member of the Holy Cross family, you don’t question helping out a friend. You just do it. Lifelong friends Gary Bamberger and Tim Bockweg knew they had to step up to that proverbial plate when best friend Clay Eifert, the principal of Holy Cross High School, found out in June he had Stage II melanoma. The two friends, plus a large committee of Holy Cross faculty and alumni, have organized Cure for Clay, a fundraiser to be held from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. Nov. 3 at the Drawbridge Inn. All proceeds will benefit Eifert in his battle against cancer. “I actually grew up with Clay. We’ve been best friends our whole lives,” Bamberger said. “Clay is a strong person and a take-charge type of person. But this is something that he cannot take charge of.” Eifert, used to helping others, not receiving help himself, wasn’t quite gung-ho about the idea at first. “I’m a very proud man, but despite my objections, they said ‘Clay, we want to help you,’” Eifert recalled. “I’ve always been the person around here who’s kind of lead others to rally during periods of tragedy. It’s humbling because I’ve seen the outpouring of emotion and the outpouring of kindness and generosity from so many people.” Eifert, a Holy Cross alum himself, has worked his entire 26year career at Holy Cross. Eifert’s

Cure for Clay will take place from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. Wednesday Nov. 3 at the Drawbridge Inn. Tickets in advance are $40 per person $75 per couple. At the door, the tickets are $50. Price includes hors d’oeuvres buffet, bottled beer, wine and a cash bar. The event will include a silent auction and raffles.

Best friends Tim Bockweg, Clay Eifert and Gary Bamberger pause for a picture in front of Holy Cross School Oct. 21. Bamberger and Bockweg are hosting a fundraiser for Eifert, the principal of Holy Cross High School, who was recently diagnosed with Stage II Melanoma. Cure for Clay will be held Nov. 3 at the Drawbridge Inn. All proceeds will benefit Eifert’s battle against cancer. been principal for 11 years. “It has really reaffirmed what I think being at Holy Cross is all about. Family, faith and friends have been great sources of sup-

port for me and have really rallied around me,” Eifert said. In July, Eifert had surgery to remove malignant melanoma growth. Afterward, Eifert under-

went daily chemotherapy for a month. Currently, he is undergoing a regimen of chemotherapy shots three times a week for the next 52 weeks. “It’s a long haul. It makes me pretty sick, but I’ve been coming to school every day,” he said. “I love the kids. The best day for me was the day I was able to return to see the kids here. They make me want to get up every day.” Like Eifert, Bamberger believes Holy Cross is the most “family-oriented” high school he’s ever seen. “They come together in times of crisis,” he said. “Of course, this is one of the biggest crises we’ve had.” Eifert, who is married to Lori, with whom he has two children, is thankful for his Holy Cross family. “It’s the only school I’ve ever taught at and the only school I ever wanted to teach at,” he said. “I love this place. Holy Cross is at the core of who I am and what I am and I couldn’t stand the idea of leaving and going somewhere else.”

Ribbon cut, doors open at Kenton County Jail By Regan Coomer

It’s a sunny day for Kenton County. Kenton County officials cut a red ribbon to pieces in honor of the completed $41

million,163,000-squarefoot Kenton County Detention Center at a ceremony Friday Oct. 22. A crowd of local, state and federal dignitaries and their friends and family looked on as Judge-execu-

tive Ralph Drees thanked all involved with the jail, including project manager Turner Construction. Afterward, the crowd moved inside the jail for tours led by jail deputies. “This is a big event,” Drees said, adding that himself and the commissioners stuck it through, despite the controversy of a few years ago. “It worked out real good.” Drees said he was proud that no state or federal money went toward building the jail. “That’s how it ought to be. The citizens of Kenton County can be real proud of this.” Approximately $75,000 was raised at a recent fundraiser held at the jail, Drees said, funding that will be used for a new women’s’ drug abuse program. “We really appreciate the opportunity for inmates who are female and have drug problems,” said Kenton Circuit Judge Patricia Summe, adding with a laugh that the new jail has taken away her best threat: the smell. “I can no longer threaten people with a smelly jail and nothing but bologna sandwiches,” she laughed.


Kenton County hosted a ribbon cutting of the new Kenton County Detention Center Friday Oct. 22. County, state, city and federal officials were present at the event, which included a raising of the colors, a ribbon cutting and tours of the jail. Left to right: Judge-executive Ralph Drees, Jailer Terry Carl, Commissioner Kris Knochelmann and County Attorney Garry Edmondson prepare to cut the ribbon in front of the new jail. County Attorney Garry Edmondson summed up the day’s accomplishment, saying the new jail has been talked about ever since he started work in local government 35 years ago. “All 35 years we’ve talked about how we needed a new jail. It took a homebuilder to get us where we are,” Edmondson said, smiling at Drees. “That was his principle goal, and he did it. It took someone with his vision and experience to pull it off.”


The Kenton County Detention Center’s master control room features screens showing views from the 163 cameras that keep track of movements inside, and outside, the jail. The monitors in the background serve three purposes: the first monitor rotates through every camera, the second provides a close-up look if needed and the third is a constant view of certain rooms in the jail.

THIS IS NOT A BACKPACK. It’s a moneybag. Full of the money that you worked hard for so that your kids could go to school and absorb the knowledge to lay the foundation for their own success. So that they, in turn, can

Ten inmates will be responsible for preparing and cooking food as well as cleaning up when the cooking is done.

Eight vie for Covington commission seats By Regan Coomer

Five newcomers will challenge three incumbents in a race for four Covington Commission seats. Commissioner candidates are concerned about continuing economic growth, facilitating quality city services, keeping the budget balanced and improving quality of life in Covington.

Sherry Carran

Incumbent Sherry Carran, 64, was elected to city commission in 2006 and earned a bachelor’s degree in architecture from the University of Cincinnati in 1974. In the past, Carran served on the Kenton County Conservation District Board from 1996-2004. Carran is a member of the Banklick Watershed Council, the Kenton Conservancy and the Northern Kentucky Urban & Community Forestry Council. “I believe I’ve made a positive difference for Covington in the last four years on Covington City Commission,” she said, adding that if re-elected, she will focus


Rains Carran on improving code enforcement and quality of life in Covington.

Stephen Casper

Candidate Stephen Casper, 65, is sales vice president at Comey & Shepherd Realtors, earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Bowling Green State University in 1967. In the past, Casper served on the Covington Board of Adjustments as well as president of the Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors, and president of the Ohio Association of Realtors. Currently, Casper is a member of the Covington Business Council and the Latonia Business Association. “I bring much-needed expertise to the handling of the housing problems in Covington. With my busi-

ness background, I believe I can help balance the budget deficit and help attract new jobs,” Masters Casper said. If elected, Casper hopes to help instill pride back in Covington and reach out to city neighborhoods for better collaboration.

Steve Frank

Candidate Steve Frank, 54, is a Certified Financial Planner at Wells Fargo, earning his CFP certification in 1993. In the past, Frank served as president of the Covington Rotary Club and the Northern Kentucky Estate Planning Council. Currently, Frank is a board member of Gateway Technical & Community College, the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and the Covington Business Council. “I have a chance to clearly understand the need to turn our business climate around to attract the revenue to keep our city services running,” he said.

If elected, Frank hopes to find the best practices to run the city as efficiently as possible.

Shawn Masters

Incumbent Shawn Masters, 39, was elected to city commission in 2008. Masters, a 1993 graduate of the University of Kentucky with a degree in business administration, is the co-owner of The Merlot Group, a Covington-based graphic design/marketing firm. In the past, Masters has served on the Covington Business Council and the Covington Vacant Properties Review Commission. Currently Masters is a member of the Telecommunications Board of Northern Kentucky, the River Cities Government Coalition and the Rabbit Hash Historical Society. “My work is not done!” Masters wrote. “I’ve advocated for a complete change in city administration so that we may focus, aggressively, on economic development.” If re-elected, Masters hopes to create incentives for people to do business in

Covington as well as make the city a cleaner and greener place.

Raymond Murphey

Candidate Raymond Murphy, 59, is retired and graduated from Holmes High School in 1969, attended Centre College, Northern Kentucky University and Eastern Kentucky University. “There is a real or perceived lack of cooperative among management within the city,” Murphy said. “The inability of our city leaders to work together is the biggest issue.”

Midlred Rains

Incumbent Mildred Rains, 66, was appointed to city commission in May 2009. Rains, who retired as Covington Director of Code Enforcement in 2006, was the city’s first female housing inspector. Rains has two children and three grandchildren. If elected, Rains hopes to focus on housing and economic development. “After many years, the Economic Development Department is fully staffed

and can work to bring more business into Covington and retain the ones we have,” she said.

Paul Wright

Candidate Paul Wright, 60, is a 1968 graduate of Simon Kenton High School, a retired Metro/Sorta mechanic. In the past, Wright served 10 years on Taylor Mill City Commission, eight of which he served as the Taylor Mill Police Commissioner. Wright is a member of the Taylor Mill Lions Club and National Rifle Association. “I would like to use my experience to work for the citizens to improve their quality of life,” he said. “I will work for prosperity for our citizens and our city using fiscal responsibility and a vision for the future for all our citizens.” If elected, Wright wants Covington to improve street repair, police protection and fiscal responsibility. Candidate Damian Sells did not respond to the Community Recorder questionnaire.

St. E luncheons promote breast health By Regan Coomer

Breast Cancer Awareness Month may almost be over, but St. Elizabeth Healthcare wants local women to be mindful of breast health yearround. To encourage women 40 and over to get their yearly mammogram, St. Elizabeth is hosting weekly Women’s Power Lunches through the end of 2011. Women can eat a free lunch, get a 15-minute chair massage and a mammography screening, all in one lunchtime. “With today’s fast pace and increasing demands, women often overlook themselves as they tend to their own family needs,” said Toni Carle, manager of St. Elizabeth Women’s Wellness. “Our power lunch program is an effort to raise awareness of women’s health and encourage women to take care of themselves.” Each week the lunch is open for up to 10 of a woman’s friends, who are encouraged to come as a group and get mammography screenings “in a social and less threatening environment,” Carle said.

Tichenor student’s artwork chosen for calendar

By Jason Brubaker

Although there’s still two months left in 2010, Karen Zumba already can’t wait for 2011. That’s because Zumba, a sixthgrader at Tichenor Middle School, is among the local students whose artwork will be featured in the 2011 calendar put out by the Kenton County Attorney’s Office. Each year, the attorney’s office sponsors the “Why I Love America” calendar contest, encouraging local students to submit their best patriotic artwork. A winner is selected at each grade level to appear in the calendar. “It’s pretty cool that everyone will get to see my drawing,” said Zumba. “I was really excited when my teacher told me I had won, because I worked really hard on my drawing.” Kenton County Attorney Garry Edmondson said this is the 10th year of the calendar contest, and the entries continue to amaze him. This year, over 4,000 entries were submitted and judged by Edmond-


Tichenor sixth-grader Karen Zumba was seleted as a winner for the “Why I Love America” calendar contest for her artwork. Her patriotic picture will be featured in the 2011 calendar put out by the Kenton County Attorney's Office. son, Kenton County Sheriff’s Office Captain Todd Massey, Senior Services of Northern Kentucky Director Ken Adams, Ken-

ton County Police Chief Ed Butler, Kenton County District Court Judge Ken Easterling and Circuit Court Judge Gregory Bartlett.

“Our children have once again used their creative talents to remind us of those precious freedoms we all possess,” said Edmondson in a released statement. “To the thousands of students in schools all across Kenton County - I truly enjoy seeing your artwork each year, and you help remind me of the reason I do what I do every day.” Joining Zumba as winners were kindergartner Logan Sizemore and first-grader Maddie Desmond from Summit View Elementary, secondgrader Drew Hassman from St. Agnes, third-grader Chris Carpenter from Ninth District Elementary, fourth-grader Carly KruerKomaromy from St. Pius, fifthgrader John Hiller from St. Agnes, seventh-grader Sarah Kleier from St. Cecilia, eighth-grader Alisha Graciano from Summit View, ninth-grader Katherine Kremer from Beechwood, 10th-grader Molly Stoddart from Villa Madonna, 11th-grader Sarah Harmon from Calvary Christian, and 12thgrader Mikayla Turner from Simon Kenton. There were also honorable

mention honors given at each grade level; kindergartner Beckett Dunham from St. Pius, first-grader Kayla Ash from Summit View, second-grader Annie Kleier from St. Agnes, third-grader Christopher Fritz and fourth-grader Brandon Wever from St. Pius, fifthgrader Haylee Mitchell from Piner, sixth-grader Jake Gerrein from Prince of Peace, seventh-grader Makenzie Thelen from St. Cecilia, eighth-grader Mallory Brown from Prince of Peace, ninth-grader Kosta Papakirk from Villa Madonna, 10th-grader Haley Hanfill from Holmes, and 11th-grader Julianne Catonese and 12th-grader Anna Menefee, both from Simon Kenton. All of the winners received a $200 savings bond, while students who received honorable mention will receive a $50 savings bond. There will be a recognition ceremony on Dec. 6 at the Carnegie Center, and the calendars will be on sale beginning Dec. 8 for $5 each.

Kenton schools asking for DVDs for the troops By Regan Coomer

Kenton County Schools and Coldwell Banker West Shell Northern Kentucky want troops to have a little piece of home this Veterans’ Day. The Treat the Troops DVD drive will last through Friday Oct. 29. The schools and company want to send brand-new, shrink-wrapped DVDs to soldiers for use during their downtime overseas. DVDs are one of the biggest requests from soldiers, said Melody Simms, the Coordinator of the Kenton Elementary Family Resource Center, one of the DVD drop-off points. “Coldwell Banker West Shell is a great partner and we wanted to support them and help out with the drive,” she said. The DVDs are a simple way to help soldiers stay in-touch with home, Simms said. “It will make them feel connected even though they can’t physically be with their friends and family.” While DVDs are still trickling in, Simms said, the schools are welcoming many more donations. “Anyone who wants to help out our troops this year, this is a good way to do it. Shop for a DVD with your child and explain the important of veterans and our troops,” Simms said. “Even if each school only gets 5 DVDs, that’s 50 or 60 more movies to send over.” Coldwell Banker West Shell Manager Cheery Malone said that while this is the third year for the drive, it’s the first time Kenton County Schools have been involved. “Kenton County Schools support the philosophy of teaching good habits to students in the beginning and teaching them the important of giving back,”

Kenton County Elementary fifth grade student Olivia Bowling shows off some of the DVDs that have been donated for the Treat our Troops DVD Drive. All Kenton County schools are partnering with Coldwell Banker West Shell Northern Kentucky to send troops overseas a taste of home this Veterans’ Day. Malone said. “We thought we would partner with them and they have taken on the challenge.” Like Simms, Malone sees the drive as a way to provide just one more comfort to troops away from home. “This is a way to bring something from home to them and let them know we’re thinking about them in so many ways,” she said. Once the DVDs are collected, Malone said, the company works with the USO to find DVD recipients among different troops.

Eagles play with 12th man on field By James Weber


Simon Kenton’s Meghan Meyer controls the ball in front of St. Henry’s Melissa Spare during their game at St. Henry.

The Scott High School boys’ soccer team is playing with the proverbial 12th man in the postseason. The Eagles were set to play Pendleton County Oct. 26 in a state tournament round-of-16 game. A win pits the Eagles against either Highlands or Russell in the state quarterfinals Thursday, Oct. 28. Scott would travel for that contest. A win there puts the Eagles in the state semifinals Thursday, Nov. 4, at Georgetown College. “We’re playing with a lot of confidence, playing within ourselves,” Scott head coach Casey Seibert said. “We’re doing what we know what we can do. I told them from here on out, it’s up to you. I’m not going to be able to tell you anything to make you a better team. It will all come down to how hard you play and how smart you play.” The Eagles have regrouped after the death of former teammate Cameron

Batson Oct. 6. In the postseason, Scott is 4-0, shutting out top rivals St. Henry and Ryle 1-0 to win the Ninth Region tourney for the second straight year. “Cameron has always been an inspiration,” said senior Alec Robbins, the team’s leading scorer. “Every game I dedicate to him. We have our armbands that we wear for him. He’s on everyone’s minds all the time.” St. Henry lost 1-0 to Scott in the Ninth Region semifinals. “We fought hard,” head coach Steve Hahn said. “The guys had a sense of resiliency. You can’t ask for much more out of them. They come to play every night and they enjoy playing together and being with each other on the field.” Seniors are Nick Smith, Zach Barnett, Jeremy Jones, Craig Fiedler, Luke Dehner, Alex Samotis, Ryan Janszen, Matt Leese, Kevin Baeten, Daniel Astudillo, and Jesse Zilio. Dixie Heights lost to Ryle 6-1 in the Ninth Region semifinals. Seniors are

Eagles regroup after O’Conner’s injury By James Weber

When Lauren O’Conner went down to a broken finger in midseason, the expectations of the Scott High School volleyball team did not go down as well. While the Eagles didn’t reach the ultimate height of a Ninth Region championship, they finished with a 32-9 record after a 25-16, 25-22 loss to St. Henry Oct. 21 in the regional semifinals. O’Conner, a 6-foot-5 senior hitter who can play all the positions on the court, was the region player of the

year in 2009 and has committed to play for the University of Kentucky. “I think we relied so much on Lauren in the beginning,” Scott head coach Andrea Sullivan said. “She’s returning region player of the year and all of that. When she went down, our goals stayed the same.” Many other players stepped up. Senior Lauren Tibbs became the top target on offense with more than 200 kills on the year. The team’s other 6-foot-5 Lauren has verbally committed to play basketball for Marquette and was wearing a jacket with that school’s logo after matches.

“She does a great job of seeing where the defense is, seeing where the blockers are,” Sullivan said “Not a lot of hitters have that and it comes naturally to her.” Sullivan said Tibbs did well playing defense in the back row after O’Conner’s injury, a role she had not played before. Junior Erin Romito was third on the team in kills and led in aces. Summer Manning and Lauren Trame led the team in digs. Taylor Stinson had more than 500 assists and was fifth in the region in that category. Senior Erin Mersch stepped up at the net as well this year.

Football playoff matchups almost decided By James Weber

Here are the playoff matchups for Kenton County football teams. Seeds determine home field for the first three rounds, with a tiebreaker potentially used in the third round. The hosts for the state semifinals are predetermined by region. 1A: No. 3 Bellevue (4-5) plays at No. 2 Eminence (44). No. 4 Bishop Brossart (6-3) plays at No. 1 Frankfort (7-2). No. 1 Beechwood (6-3) and No. 2 Walton-Verona (6-3) will have to wait until this weekend to see who they play. Gallatin County (2-7), Trimble County (1-9) and Bracken County (2-7) tied for third place in District 4. Two of them will make the playoffs depending on the KHSAA’s strength-ofvictory procedure, with adds up the win totals of the top four teams you have beaten, as long as they are not also in the tie. This deadlock has numerous possibilities. In the third round, the local 1A team would travel if its opponent has the same seed from the other district. The state semifinals would be up here. 2A: No. 1 Newport Central Catholic (8-1) hosts No.



Holy Cross junior Justin Kohake (27) is brought down by a Newport player after making an interception during their football game Oct. 23 at Holmes. Holy Cross won 55-21.

The opponents in District 6 are No. 1 Boyle County (9-0), No. 2 Lexington Catholic (5-4), No. 3 East Jessamine (6-3), and No. 4 West Jessamine (6-3). Holmes would travel in the third round of the playoffs if playing the same seed from District 6. Holmes would also travel for the state semifinals. 5A: No. 1 Highlands (90) hosts No. 4 Woodford County (1-8). No. 2 Covington Catholic (5-4) hosts No. 3 Ashland Blazer (6-3). No. 3 Dixie Heights (4-5)

travels to No. 2 Montgomery County (6-3). No. 4 Scott (2-7) travels to No. 1 Johnson Central (7-2). The local 5A district teams would travel in the third round if the opponent has the same seed, and would also travel for the state semifinals. 6A: No. 1 Ryle (8-1) hosts No. 4 Madison Central (1-8). No. 2 Simon Kenton (7-2) hosts No. 3 Tates Creek (5-4). No. 3 Campbell County (4-5) travels to No. 2 George Rogers Clark (5-4). No. 4 Conner (5-5) travels to No. 1 Henry Clay (7-2).

No. 3 Newport (5-4) travels to No. 2 Christan AcademyLouisville (5-4). No. 4 Lloyd (1-8) travels to No. 1 DeSales (5-4). In the third round, the local 2A district would host if its opponent has the same seed. The local team would travel for the state semifinals. 4A: Holmes (7-2) travels to Harrison County (5-4) 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 29. If the Bulldogs win, they get the top seed and their second-straight district title. If Holmes loses, however, it comes down to a three-

way tie with Harrison and Franklin County, which would be decided on the strength-of-victory tiebreaker. Holmes is in a precarious position there. Franklin County has 13 points, Harrison County 12 and Holmes 11. The key games for Holmes are Cooper at Newport and Bellevue at Lloyd. A Cooper win gives Holmes at least the two seed and a first-round home game. If Bellevue wins as well, Holmes would win the top seed if three other games go its way: Danville over Frankfort, Tates Creek over

Late touchdown leaves Colonels far from blue By James Weber

On Homecoming day at Covington Catholic, the Colonels football team made plans to stay home for the “big dance” of the Class 5A state playoffs. The plans paid off with a 40-36 win over Dixie Heights Oct. 23 at Cov Cath in a head-to-head battle for the No. 2 seed in District 5 and a home game in the first round of the Class 5A playoffs. Cov Cath is 5-4 overall, 2-1 in the district, while Dixie dropped to 4-5, 1-2. Cov Cath hosts Louisville St. Xavier 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 30. Dixie plays Boone County. “That’s a big deal for our team, especially our seniors,” CCH head coach Dave Wirth said. “They know next week is not the last game they’ll play on this field.” CCH quarterback Blake Bir connected with junior Clint Massie for the winning touchdown, a 12-yard catch-and-run with 59 seconds to play. It was

Massie’s first TD of the season and culminated a 12play, 60-yard drive. “I tried to take what the defense gave me,” Bir said. “The line did a great job. I tried not to turn the ball over since we were in fieldgoal range.” Bir threw for 261 yards and four touchdowns. Alex Connelly had nine catches for 127 yards and a TD. Christian Schulte had two TD catches. Gabe Gray and Alex Slabaugh had TD rushes. “I’m thankful that Brady Reese had an interception, Blake put the ball where it needed to be, and that guys like Paul Ritter and the other defensive guys make tackles and the line makes great blocks,” Connelly said. “After you’re done, you’re really thankful for everybody.” Dixie junior quarterback Zeke Pike had a monster first half, totaling 144 rushing yards and three touchdowns plus 118 in the air, but missed most of the second half with a shoulder injury. Backup Corbin DeMatteo was injured late

Last week’s question

Do you think communities should regulate the number and sizes of political signs people can display on private property? Why or why not? “I believe that it is every adult citizens right and duty to be involved in politics. This includes the display of political signs on their own property. No one or community has the right to regulate our freedom of speech. Communities can set a reasonable time limit on the display of signs (say 2 weeks prior to the election) but not the number or size. This should include those communities where a person’s private residence is on “community” property such as condominium complexes.” T.H. “The greatest thing about our country is our freedom. It doesn’t make any difference to me how many political signs people put on their private property – or how large they might be. It’s like TV – look the other way if you don’t like what you see. “But what really peeves me are the inconsiderate folks who leave the signs up for days, weeks and even months after an election day. Communities should fine the violators – say $10 or more – per sign per day after elections. Just think what that would do to boost the communities’ bottom lines! ‘Nuff said ...’” M.M. “Not only the number and size of the signs, but how about placing a law that within 72 hours all signs have to be removed or the responsible candidate will be fined per sign left standing to weather and fade in the many weeks and months after the election.” O.H.R. There should be regulations not only on yard signs but also radio and TV ads. By Nov. 2, I’m ready to regurgitate.” D.J. “Absolutely. They should only be allowed on private property, not in the right-of-way, and should only be permitted for a limited amount of time.

Next question Write the headline and/or lead you expect to see, or would like to see, for next Wednesday’s postelection coverage. Send your answer to “” with Chatroom in the subject line. “Most importantly, they should be required to be removed after the election.” P.C. “Do I think communities should regulate the number and sizes of political signs people can display on private property? Absolutely not! And I say that even for those people whose political affiliation is in direct opposition to my own. The government does not need to be involved in this aspect of our lives – it’s none of their business. The political season is only for a very short time, and even if we disagree with a candidate or an issue, the signs are only going to up for a brief period of time. We should just grin and bear it. It’s not going to hurt anyone. Unless your neighbors are causing a serious problem (and political signs aren’t a serious problem), you should let people exercise their freedom of speech and expression.” B.B. “No. Just hope they know what must be done!” J.F. “I find political signs to be annoying, unsightly litter. They often deface our community by lingering long after elections. Anyone dumb enough to vote for a candidate just because his neighbor put up a sign is a fool who shouldn’t have the right to vote. That said, it is doubtful that this type of sign could be regulated in any way without running afoul of our constitutional protections of free expression. Further, there is no practical way to separate the fools from the informed voters. If we prevented the fools from voting, there may not be any voters left. If you regulate political yard signs, what’s next, the content of my mail?” F.S.D.

Store tender bulbs before soil freezes Question: Which bulbs and flowers need dug up and brought inside for the winter? Answer: Tender bulbs, corms, rhizomes and tubers are not coldhardy enough to survive most Kentucky winters. Therefore, it is best to dig up these plants in the fall and bring them inside for winter. Flowers such as cannas, gladiolus, caladiums, dahlias, geraniums and begonias are often preserved from year to year by removing them from the soil, storing them indoors and then replanting them outdoors the following spring after danger of frost. You should dig tender bulbs in the fall before the soil freezes. There are basically two ways to store “bulbs” over winter. Gladiolus bulbs, actually called “corms,” can be cured and stored dry as you would onions. To do this, dig the corms and remove excess soil and foliage. Spread corms out in a dry area that has plenty of air circulation and allow them to cure. After curing, remove any dried foliage or excess stems. Dusting with a fungicide is not necessary but can be done at this time. Store bulbs in any container (potato sack or paper bag with holes punched in it) that will

allow adequate air circulation. Place containers in an area with good air circulation and where the temperature will not drop below freezing. Other tender Mike Klahr “bulbs,” such as Community dahlias, will not Recorder tolerate dry storcolumnist age because the tubers will desiccate. You should dig these plants before the first expected killing frost and remove all excess foliage and soil. You can hose off the tubers to remove soil as long as you allow them to dry adequately before storage. Generally, division is not necessary at this time. Cover tubers with dry peat moss, vermiculite or any other material that will still allow air circulation to reduce desiccation. Boxes or paper bags are possible containers and should be stored where temperatures will not drop below freezing. Both storage methods require periodic inspections throughout the winter to make sure that none of the bulbs have begun to rot. Discard any bulbs that show signs

of rotting. Cannas are another flower that must be dug in the fall. After the tops of cannas have been killed by frost, allow them to dry for several days. Then cut back the tops to 3-4 inches of stem and carefully lift the roots with a fork or spade. Turn the clump of roots over and allow to dry for a few hours. Store roots in a cool, moderately dry area where the temperature will not go over 50 degrees F. Place on shelves or racks, or hang in mesh bags so air can circulate freely among the clumps. Do not allow roots to freeze. Question: Is it too late to start a new lawn? Answer: Lawns should be seeded between mid-August and late September. If you plant seed now, it may not have time to get established before winter and much of it may die by spring, unless we have a very mild fall and winter. The next window of opportunity for planting grass seed is mid-February to late March. Perhaps you could wait until then to improve your chances of success. Mike Klahr is the Boone County Extension Agent for Horticulture.

Read below for the scariest tales Kenton County kids could cook up for this Halloween.


The Kenton County Public Library’s story winner in grades 1-3 in the Haunt Your Library Writing Contest was Daryl Zazyscki for his story, “The Halloween Night.”

Doomed By: Erin Miller, Poetry, First Place I’m running away from this monstrous thing That’s chasing me through the dark. It followed me all the way from my house To the local park. At the park, they had this booth, called, “Have your Socks Blown off!” Then, the thing, he did just that, By giving an almighty cough. The monster hacked and carried on For a solid two minutes straight! By this time, I was picking the lock on the rusty, iron Park gate. Well, I picked the lock alright, But I’m as stupid as can be. I left the gate open, as if to say, “Here monster---come eat me!” The monster followed me as I ran, ‘till I heard a Terrible moan. “I’m the Black Sludge Monster,” I heard from behind, “and I’m going to crush your Bones! You see, little one,” he continued on, “You’ve led me to my home.” I looked down to see that I was knee-deep In a horrible black sludge. Although it looked Revolting, it had the texture of melted fudge. The creature had me cornered, it had happened out of The blue. And now, Since I was stuck there, there was nothing I could do. If you ever find this note, it will be too late. Just stay away from the graveyard at midnight, Or suffer my same fate. The Halloween Night By: Daryl Zazyscki, Story, first place, grades 1-3 Once upon a time in a dark, dark night there was a dark black cat.


The first-place winner of the poetry portion of the Haunt Your Library Writing Contest at the Mary Ann Mongan branch is Erin Miller for her poem “Doomed.” Dead Fred By: Jimmy Monroe, Story, first place, grades 4-6


Turkey Foot Middle School sixth grader Kylie Brock was the second-place winner in the Poetry portion of the Kenton County Public Library’s Haunt Your Library Writing Contest for her poem “The Haunted.” And there was a green witch in a black hat on a brown broom in the air above the cat. Ha Ha Ha. And right by the witch there was a ghost that was white. Boo! And by the black cat there was the spookiest, scariest thing of all… It is Frankenstein. Halloween was over at the rise of the sun. Boo! The End.

There was once a boy named Fred, Fred was a 12-year-old boy that everyone thought was perfect. He had good grades, many friends and was Kenton County kids very helpful. put their spooky Yes he was thinking caps on p e r f e c t except for and wrote hairone thing. raising tales for the He's dead Kenton County but he doesn't know it.

He woke up in a morgue around midnight, he stumbled home, sliped into bed and waited… Around 9 a.m. Fred work up and saw that on his calendar it's his birthday. He checked his drawers and found no clothes, just dust. So he wrapped himself in a towel and pounced down the steps. But to his surprise, there was no party.

What a grieving person can expect from others No other experience is as frequent as loss. Life begins with the loss of the comfortable womb and ends with the loss of life in this world or of people we dearly love. Between womb and tomb there are many varieties of other findings and losings. Accompanying each loss is a certain degree of grieving. I say “a certain degree” because losing our wallet, losing some of our hair, losing our job, losing our health or mobility, and losing our spouse or child all cause grief of varying degrees. It’s the loss of someone loved that creates the greatest wound. The word “grief” comes from the Latin gravis, “to bear,” “to carry the heaviness and depth of a situation.” We only grieve what has value to us. When a person we love dies, contrasting feelings fight within us. On one hand we appreciate this valued person we’ve been blessed

to have and hold in our heart. On the other hand, our heart’s sorrow is immeasurable because we can no longer hold or her. Life’s Father Lou him t r e a s u r e s Guntzelman become life’s Perspectives losses. Yet we must never hesitate to love because someday we may lose them. That condemns us to a wooden-like life. Grief is normal. Like other primal emotions it resists words and platitudes, resists being pinned down, analyzed and dealt with as a measurable problem. We resist others’ thinking they know just how we feel, for our love and our pain is specifically ours. What we do not resist – and need very much – is the sensitive understanding of others.

Our compassion, maturity and social graces help us relate to those in grief. They help us know what to say and what not to say; what to do and what not to do; and realize when the one grieving wishes to be left alone and when our presence is needed. Many people are uncomfortable around a grieving person, sometimes petrified, insensitive, rude or disconnected. Leon Wieseltier in his book “Kaddish,” derides what he sees as the American preoccupation with moving on, “closure,” tidying up painful experiences and memories. “Americans really believe that the past is past,” he writes. “They do not know that the past soaks the present like the light of a distant star. Things that are over do not end. They come inside us and seek sanctuary in subjectivity. And there they live on, in the consciousness of individuals and

communities.” Is what he says about our obsession with moving on and obtaining closure true? I believe so. The most repressed and banished fear we carry around is death anxiety. We are afraid of death, we don’t like to be around it, we exercise and diet to avoid it, we don’t talk about it. Men, much more than women, are struck dumb in dealing with such sensitive issues. Woody Allen, speaking for many men, relies on humor to avoid dealing with death. Allen said once, “I don’t mind dying, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.” Whether it be excessive death anxiety or lack of social graces, we can still learn to be of support to grieving people – not just in the immediacy of their loss, but over the long haul. During many subsequent weeks or months we can genuine-

ly ask how they’re doing, be willing to really listen if it appears they wish to talk a little, and not just presuppose “they should be over it by now.” After one of my sisters died, a remaining sister received a card and kind expressions of consolation But after two weeks it was never mentioned again. We never “get over” the major joys and sorrows of our lives. Sure, we like to talk and share our joys. But our sorrows always remain heavier to bear alone. Yet realistically, every one of us must learn to do that despite all the caring support we receive. That’s just part of being an imperfect human with a vulnerable heart.

High-risk insurance plans now being offered Although health insurance reform is on the books, many provisions won’t kick in for a few years. Yet some things, like high risk health pools, took effect in September. This comes as a relief to many who have pre-existing conditions. Donna Griffin of Kennedy Heights lost her job last year and has been keeping her health coverage by paying for Cobra Insurance. She has a condition requiring her to take pain medication, and that’s causing problems. “Now that my Cobra Insurance is getting ready to run out, I’m having problems getting health insurance. I’m being denied because I have a pre-exist-

ing condition,” she said. Several health insurance companies cited her cord Howard Ain spinal implant as Hey Howard! the reason for denying her coverage, while another would only give her coverage if she paid a monthly premium exceeding $760. “I have bills to pay, books for school, so I’m at a dead-end road and that’s why I called you, so you could help me and all the others out there who are having the same problem I’m running into,” Griffin said.

So I told her about a new high-risk pool in Ohio run by Medical Mutual of Ohio. “I’ve never heard of it and I’ve been on the computer looking. You’re the first person I heard mention this,” said Griffin. I had her go online and see this is part of Health Care Reform – The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that became law March 23. Ohio is one of 30 states running its own high-risk pool, and it has two plans. The first plan has a $1,500 deductible and the second plan – costing less money – has a $2,500 deductible. You can pick the plan that’s best for you. Griffin put her information into the website and found a plan that will cost

her $365 a month, which is less than she’s paying now. “I can deal with that,” she said. The only problem with this high-risk insurance is you have to be without health insurance for six months before you can apply. There’s nothing you can do about the six-month wait. It was imposed by Congress when it passed health care reform. Kentucky resident will find the patient protection and affordable care act also

Add some spice to the mix with Buffalo hot sauce Last week I shared two of my favorite Halloween recipes on Channel 19’s morning show with Sheila Gray and Dan Wells (who was filling in for Rob Williams). Afterwards, Ashley Whittle, the producer, was telling me about a Buffalo chex mix she tasted while producing a TV show in Tennessee. She said it was so good that everyone kept coming back for more. Ashley shared it with me so I can now share it with you. (The video of my Fox 19 cooking segment is on my “Cooking with Rita” blog at And I’m finally getting caught up with your requests. See my “can you help “ section at the end of this article.

Spicy Buffalo chex mix

This makes a great last minute treat for Halloween or for a tailgate party. Here’s my adaptation. 4 cups each: Rice Chex and Wheat Chex cereal

Set aside while bringing to boil butter, hot sauce, dressing mix and celery seed. Pour over cereal mix and mix. Microwave on high, uncovered, four to five minutes, stirring thoroughly every two minutes. Spread on paper towels to cool and store in covered container.

Dez’s favorite egg casserole

Dez (Maggie Hoerst of

New Richmond) is my grandchildren’s other grandma. Between her daughters, Jess and Lottie, Maggie and her husband, Denny, have eight grandchildren and every one of them loves this casserole.
