Cold shelter off to a great start, officials say

By Regan Coomer

The Emergency Cold Shelter of Northern Kentucky opened its doors for the first time in 2009 Thursday Nov. 5 – giving 24 individuals a haven for the night. “This year we’ve got everyone on a bed or a cot,” said Shelter Operations Manager Rachael Winters. “We’re off to a really nice start – it’s a great alternative to sleeping outside.” More than 120 people, including Covington Mayor Denny Bowman, attended the shelter’s open house Nov. 4, Winters said, bringing paper towels, gift cards, long underwear and more. However, more donations are needed, Winters said, explaining the shelter provides meals and outfits the homeless with clothing and winter wear in addition a bed to sleep in. Men’s gloves are especially

Another benefit for homeless at the shelter is free medical attention, provided by Northern Kentucky University nursing students and their supervisors, who attend the shelter’s guests once a week. Other volunteers wash their clothes three times a week, Winters said. Shelter volunteers and employees also make sure to save a bed for individuals who work full-

The Emergency Cold Shelter of Northern Kentucky opened its doors for the first time Thursday Nov. 5. The shelter provides 32 beds, a meal, a shower and clothing to homeless men and women in Northern Kentucky.

There are also two men’s support groups for the homeless that meet at the shelter, Winters said. “This is a way for many to take the next step to getting a secure home,” said shelter employee Cindy Tupman, a Covington resident, who said support from Northern Kentucky residents and organizations has been tremendous. “It hasn’t just been Covington. All over Kenton, Boone and Campbell. We’ve had really good support,” she said. The shelter opened for the first time last year at 634 Scott Boulevard. The shelter provides 32 beds for homeless men and women who must have a Kentucky state ID or referral letter. Eventually city officials hope to provide the shelter a permanent home in the Stewart Ironworks property at 20 W. 18th St. Last year the shelter provided a bed for 184 people. Winters expects to have that many and more this winter. “We don’t want anyone to die due to outside exposure. This is life saving, period,” Winters said.

County set cap on license fee collection By Regan Coomer

In future years, the Kenton County Fiscal Court can only seek a maximum fee increase of half a percent every two years for collecting occupational license fees for cities in the county. The fiscal court passed the resolution 4-0 affirming the maximum increase at the regular meeting Nov. 10. Last October the county raised the collection fee from 1 to 2 percent in an effort to make up rev-

enue lost in the collection of occupational license fees. Knochelmann estimated the county will cease subsidizing costs at 3 percent for occupational license collection. County Treasurer Jerry Knochelmann said that even with collection at 2 percent the county is still paying $139,518 more to collect than the occupational license fee collection generates. The city of Crescent Springs recently asked the fiscal court to set an increase cap because of fears of possible cost jumps for

collection in the future. Crescent Springs Mayor Jim Collett called the cap “fair.” “If you look at what it costs to collect, they are competitive. My concern was there be a cap on it and there be some basis for the fee, which wasn’t really defined in the original contract. I think that’s been accomplished,” he said. Judge-Executive Ralph Drees said the next possible increase would not happen until the 20112012 fiscal year. “Once we get the half percent we’ve absorbed some cost,” Drees

The fiscal court passed the resolution 4-0. said. “We should be close to breaking even.” Drees said he plans to “explain” the county’s choice to set maximum collection increase at .5 percent as well as the numbers behind the collection at the next mayor’s group meeting at 9 a.m. Saturday Nov. 21 at the Northern Kentucky Area Development District.

Cultivate neighborhood with community gardens By Regan Coomer

Covington residents can brighten their neighborhoods next spring and summer by taking part in a community garden. The Center for Great Neighborhoods and the Kenton County Cooperative Extension have teamed up as an educational backbone and networking center for local gardeners. The organizations will be hosting a meet and greet for interested gardeners at 6 p.m. Nov. 16 at the center, 1650 Russell Street in Covington. At the meeting gardeners can get to know one another and learn about gardening educational


Covington gardeners can soon be prepping soil and more, like those pictured, with the help of the Kenton County Extension and Covington’s Center for Great Neighborhoods. The two organizations will be hosting a meet and greet for Covington Community Gardens at 6 p.m. Nov. 16 at the center’s office, 1650 Russell Street. Residents can meet other community gardeners, learn about grants and upcoming education series and more. opportunities . “I think there are a lot of folks who would like to do

more gardening, but they don’t have any sun in their backyard or their landlord

won’t let them create a garden,” said Rachel Hastings of the Center for Great Neighborhoods. Hastings said there are eight existing or designated sites for future community gardens, which were one of the recommendations of Covington’s Third Century: Shaping Our City’s Future strategic plan adopted by the city in 2007. “Maybe they’re not going to be card-carrying neighborhood association members, but the residents can have a piece of land where they can grow some tomatoes and still be contributing positively to their neighborhood,” Hastings said. Hastings said many

Walgreens getting started in Fort Wright By Regan Coomer

Walgreens is in the process of clearing the site of its future location in Fort Wright on the corner of Dixie Highway and Kyles Lane. The Joseph Kuchle homestead and garage were demolished in the past week in preparation for construction. City Administrator Gary Huff said the new Walgreens should be complete by late spring or early summer 2010. The former Walgreens in the Fort Wright Plaza will be empty, along with the former site of Stein Mart. It is likely the Pizza Hut located in the Fort Wright Plaza will be closing as well by the end of the year, Huff said, saying the restaurant did

not renew its liquor license for this year and that the building itself was built in the 1970s and is out-ofdate for the chain’s needs. Fort Wright Mayor Joe Nienaber sees the new Walgreens’ construction as a development opportunity. “It’s moving one business from one end of the highway to another, but I think it’s going to be a stimulus for good things to come on that part of the highway,” he said. “In the end I think it’s going to be good for the shopping center because it will create a need for some activity.” Huff said the city is committed to working with the developer of the Fort Wright Plaza, Tappan Properties, to pursue leasing in the current structure or developing opportunities for the entire property.


The Walgreens in Fort Wright will be moving up the road to the corner of Dixie Highway and Kyles Lane next year. Store completion should happen around late spring, early summer 2010. Walgreens' removal will leave the Fort Wright Plaza almost empty, something Fort Wright city officials hope to fix by working with the developer of the shopping center. “I think anything is possible in that entire area,” he said. City officials said there isn’t a particular business they’re looking to see in the

plaza, but Nienaber hopes it will be a business or businesses that mesh with the rest of the city and provide a needed service to citizens. “We’re trying to encourage a stable business atmosphere so that it isn’t vacant most of the time,” Huff said. Nienaber said in a few years the entire city will start reaping benefits of what the economic development committee is working on now, including the new city “brand” and other marketing materials. The committee’s work on business and property owner outreach and zoning review will also play a part. “In three or four years the work the economic development committee is doing will make a difference to the city of Fort Wright,” Nienaber said.

neighborhoods cultivate a perennial garden, but the two organizations hope to encourage raising vegetables, which can be shared among neighbors, donated to local charities or put to whatever purpose the gardeners decide. “The meeting is making sure folks are connected through the winter so they can get their garden up and ready by spring,” Hastings said. For interested gardeners who don’t have experience gardening in an urban setting, the extension office will teach an educational series in April using an example garden that will be located at the Center for Great Neighborhoods.

“We’re going to offer the educational backbone to the community,” said extension Horticulture Agent Andrea Dee. “We can mentor people along the way.” Cultivating a garden also cultivates the community feeling in your neighborhood, Dee said. “When you get people together in a garden it sheds light on a lot of people and they share that knowledge. It’s a nice way to learn about the culture of your community by getting together and growing some food,” she said. For more information about Covington community gardens, call 491-2220 or e-mail

Anderson. “Without some of the things from the Mitten Tree we couldn’t help our clients nearly as much. Working with the library this year is definitely going to play a huge role in how many clients we can serve.” Last Christmas the community donated $500 worth of gloves, hats, mittens and scarves to Welcome House, Anderson said. “This Christmas is going to be tight with a lot of people this holiday season.

Families thanked at school’s holiday meal

By Regan Coomer

Holy Family School in Covington gave thanks for their families, friends and school at the annual Thanksgiving Lunch Friday Nov. 6. Every year moms, dads, grandparents and more are invited to enjoy a Thanksgiving-themed meal with their Holy Family relatives.

“It’s excellent. It encourages family involvement in the school. The school’s all about family,” said Tina Schweinefess, grandmother of Holy Family eighth-grader Kaley. Grand-e Gertrude Stallworth, grandmother of fourth-grade student Zada Stephens, drove 45 minutes to attend the lunch. “It’s worth it,” Stallworth said. “It makes a smile and a memory and that’s what it’s all about.”

Big sister Tiarra Spivey helped her little sisters Jalynne (left) and Kaitlynne, who are in kindergarten, to get their Thanksgiving lunches.

School tradition continues with Parade of the Saints St. Augustine School celebrated their All Saints mass on Nov. 6, focusing on the patron saint of each person present. This Mass is a school tradition that is planned each year by the fifth grade. These students processed in to the church carrying a poster board shield describing the qualities of their patron saint. With silver crowns on their heads, they are reminded that they, too, are called to be saints. The prayer's of the faithful continued to celebrate the saints' lives. Each fifth-grade student recounted a few details about their patron saint and then led a prayer connecting that saint's actions with our needs today. But the litany of the saints is the most anticipated part of the special mass. Sister Maria Therese Schappert, SND, leads the choir in singing the litany.

This prayer experience gives every person a chance to reconnect with their patron saint, remembering the qualities of that person hoping they, too, can strive to live more saintly lives. A resounding rendition of “When the Saints Go Marching In” brings the celebration to a close for another year. She calls out the names of the patron saints for every person in the school. As their patron saint is recognized each person stands and remains standing. By the end of the litany, everyone is standing. This prayer experience gives every person a chance to reconnect with their patron saint, remembering the qualities of that person hoping they, too, can strive to live more saintly lives.

A resounding rendition of “When the Saints Go Marching In” brings the celebration to a close for another year. St. Augustine School is a Catholic K-8 elementary school committed to inspiring and enabling the 122 students to embrace the Gospel message; to develop spiritually, academically, physically, emotionally and socially; and to become lifelong learners.


Hot sun

How hot is the sun, exactly? These and other questions were answered for the St. Augustine School third- and fourth-grade students as Ashley Whalen did her presentation about the sun. Each of the students researched a planet or star in the solar system, created a visual, and did a presentation about it for their classmates.

Turkey Foot’s name, mascot won’t change By Regan Coomer

In response to the concerns, the school created a committee made up of teachers, parents and students who reviewed comments from three site-based council meetings, a public forum and survey results to come to their decision, said Principal Tom Arnzen.

There were as many as 300 to 400 online surveys taken, Obermeyer said. “People really like the tradition of the school,” she said. “I don’t think it was political at all, I just think that’s the way it’s always been since 1963 and they

Officials felt it was important to make a decision on either issue before the opening of the new Turkey Foot Middle School next fall. “We looked into the possibility of making these changes because there was an interest in the community in finding out how people felt about the changes,” Arnzen said. “It was very plain to see by the end of the process that the interest

would hate to see it change.” While Turkey Foot Indians is here to stay, the school is open to the possibility of a mascot redesign, Obermeyer said, because members of the American Indian community as well as some students and faculty expressed concerns about the usage of sacred feathers and a head dress in an older mascot at September’s public forum. After the Christmas holidays a committee will research and consult with American Indians about the possibly offensive images used in the school’s mascot, Obermeyer said. “We don’t want to desecrate anybody’s feelings or thoughts so we want to do it right. If we do have to re-do our mascot, we will. We may not have to, it may be fine,” she said.

Scores soar in 1st round state playoffs Beechwood 54, Trimble County 0

By Adam Turer

The seeds held in the first weekend of the state playoffs for all but one Kenton County team. Dixie Heights, a No. 3 seed, upset second-seeded Ashland Blazer to advance to the second round. Other than that mild upset, the teams that were supposed to win took care of business in week 11. The Colonels’ reward for winning is a matchup against top-ranked Highlands in round two. Other games that highlight the second-round schedule include Covington Catholic trying to avenge last year’s playoff exit at the hands of Johnson Central and Simon Kenton aiming to keep its state championship drive alive against DuPont Manual. For three Kenton County schools, the 2009 season is over. Scott, Lloyd, and Ludlow all suffered season-ending defeats in the first round.

Joe Colosimo rushed for 98 yards and two touchdowns and recovered a fumble for a touchdown to lead the Tigers (7-4). Matt Rigdon passed for 137 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 100 and a touchdown.

Ludlow senior Jordan Laws runs in the Class 1A, Region 4 cross country meet Nov. 7 at Scott High School. Laws finished second.

By James Weber

According to the Ludlow cross country team, its firstyear coaching staff is led by an “actual” head coach and a “crazy” coach. The staff has led the Panthers to rare accomplishments. Ludlow finished second in the Class 1A, Region 4 meet Nov. 7 at Scott High School. Senior Jordan Laws finished second and senior Kyle Shea was eighth. The Panthers will compete in the state meet Nov. 14 at Kentucky Horse Park. “We didn’t have a team my freshman year,” Laws said. “To come this far and not just qualify for state for the first time but finish second is absolutely incredible.” Laws and Shea credited head coach Adam Clary for stepping in to lead the program this summer. He brought in assistants Denny Kramer and Chris Lenhof. “Last year I wasn’t very good,” Shea said. “I got the last spot at state and barely made it. I’m standing here today, top 10. I never thought I’d work this hard. I’m peaking and pushing with everything I have left.” Shea said he improved his time about 90 seconds


Ludlow junior Ashley Lancaster runs in the Class 1A, Region 4 cross country meet Nov. 7 at Scott High School. She finished 21st. from last year. Kramer, AKA the “crazy” coach, stepped up the training in the past month, putting the runners through 55 miles a week. “It’s a group effort,” he

said. “I’ve never been able to push a team as hard as I’ve pushed them. If you see me on the course, I’m going crazy and screaming. They can hear me.” Also for Ludlow, Cody

McMillen was 19th, Tyler Soward 27th, Kenny Patton 29th, Robbie Brown 49th and Jake Wright 63rd. On the girls’ team, Ludlow junior Ashley Lancaster also qualified for state after finishing 21st individually. Two Holy Cross girls finished in the top 10 and grabbed individual spots in the state meet. Gabrielle Bergman finished fourth and Natalie Jehn ninth. The Indians finished fourth as a team. Calvary senior Christina Sandberg makes her second straight appearance at state after finishing fifth in the regional. The Holy Cross boys’ team finished sixth in 1A to advance to state. Josh Robinson was 23rd to lead the Indians, followed by James Marsh (25th), Taylor Bergman (30th), Nicholas Jehn (38th), William Hemmer (40th), Aaron Fuller (43rd) and Eric Gregory (72nd). Covington Latin junior John Deis finished 14th in the 1A boys meet to earn an individual berth at state. In 3A, Scott junior Brett Pierce finished eighth to qualify for state in the boys regional. Simon Kenton senior Morgan Yocum finished 18th to advance to the 3A girls meet.

Two years ago, when Notre Dame Academy played Sacred Heart Academy in the girls’ state soccer semifinals, Sacred Heart scored in the first 10 seconds and won 2-0 to eliminate the Pandas. When the teams met again in a state tournament game Nov. 7, it took 110 minutes of game time and nearly three hours of actual time for any ball to find the back of the net. The result was just as painful for the Pandas, as that one ball led to a state title for Sacred Heart, as the Valkyries beat the Pandas in the state championship game at Georgetown College. Sacred Heart (19-1-2) won, 1-0 in penalty kicks to win its third straight title.


Notre Dame’s Courtney Clark reacts after scoring the a goal in the first half of the girls’ state semifinal soccer match versus Daviess County. Notre Dame won 2-0. NDA, which had handed SHA its only loss earlier this season, finished 23-4-1. After 80 minutes of scoreless regulation and 30 minutes of overtime, the teams went to penalty kicks, best-of-five for each team. The teams went 0-for-7

combined to start. SHA misfired on its first three attempts. Notre Dame misfired on its first, then SHA goalkeeper Maddie Peabody made saves on Torrie Lange and Chandler Clark. On NDA’s fourth attempt, Megan Berberich tried to chip it over Peabody and

missed by inches, hitting the bottom of the crossbar. SHA followed with a successful kick to lead 1-0. It came down to NDA senior Ally Westling. Like Berberich, she aimed high, but Peabody leaped and tipped the ball over the crossbar to clinch it. “I was fully confident when I hit it that it was going in,� said Westling. “I guess the way the whole night went for us, it wasn’t meant to be.� Said NDA head coach Sara Raaker: “It’s rare that all five of our shooters miss the PK. They are clearly our best five shooters. It just wasn’t our night. They can be proud of themselves because they left it all out on the field. There has to be a winner and a loser in the game. Unfortunately we didn’t come up on the winning side.�

Colonels’ will-not-die spirit helped at state

The players on the Covington Catholic soccer team brought the will-not-die spirit of the school motto into their state semifinal match. For more than threefourths of the Colonels’ contest against St. Xavier, it was enough, but eventually St. X’s roster won out. St. Xavier eliminated the Colonels 4-1 Nov. 4 at Georgetown College. “Over 80 minutes, they were a better team,� CovCath senior Michael Huffmyer said. “We stuck with them for 60 minutes. Their talent and depth just took over.� St. X (22-1-1) advanced to the state final looking for its third straight state championship. CovCath finished 14-7-1. The Tigers, averaging nearly five goals per game

Covington Catholic senior Michael Huffmyer (right) contests the ball during the Colonels’ 4-1 loss to St. Xavier in the state semifinals Nov. 4 at Georgetown College. this year, came out firing against CovCath with two great scoring opportunities in the first five minutes. CovCath senior goalkeeper Brett Futscher saved two close shots. St. X connected with 15

minutes left in the first half after CovCath could not clear the ball from its zone. Senior Tyler Riggs, who finished the game with 28 goals this season, scored. CovCath came right back a minute later, as the Colonels kept the ball in the box, with sophomore Sam Mullen finding the loose ball and scoring to tie it. It was the fourth straight postseason game Mullen scored a goal, his ninth overall. The Colonels became just the seventh team to score a goal against the Tigers this season. “That was huge,� Huffmyer said. “Most teams, they get scored on by X, they put their heads down and they get beat 5-0. We came back. We knew we could play with these guys.� After a mostly even second half, St. X grabbed a 21 lead with 24 minutes to

play on Riggs’ second goal of the game. St. X scored twice more in the next 10 minutes to run away. “After we scored that first goal, they came back and punched us in the mouth,� St. X head coach Andy Schulten said. “We were on our heels the rest of the half.� CovCath head coach Al Hertsenberg said, “St. X just kept throwing bodies on the field. They were a little more athletic than we were tonight.� CovCath had 13 seniors, nine who started the state semifinal. The starters were Futscher, Huffmyer, Trey Evans, Garrett Justice, Matt McDonald, Evan Haag, Tyler Stewart, Jacob Toebben and Logan Siemer. Others were Stephen Ruh, Chris Steinkamp, Elliot Comfort and Chris Hellmann.

It is a special day for all Americans to show their appreciation and respect for those who have given their time and energy and, in some cases, risked their life to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.” G.G.

Veterans are an important resource for our future Sen. Damon Thayer Community Recorder guest columnist

Kentucky is home to nearly 350,000 veterans who fought in every war from World War II and beyond, and we owe them all a great debt of gratitude. Many of them signed up willingly, while others were drafted during a time of great national conflict. Some knew from an early age they wanted to join the military; others compared it to alternative career choices and decided the military was the best option. Some served during peacetime and were never forced to leave our shores, while thousands saw the most trying of circumstances, lost their compatriots in battle, and visited places many of us can’t imagine. Regardless of the circumstances, however, they all deserve our respect, admiration, and thanks. We honor our heroes each year on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, but all too often we only take time to remember their sacrifices on major holidays and don’t think about all the freedoms we enjoy on a daily basis thanks to their efforts. Furthermore, we tend to think of these men and women as a single group, “veterans,” without considering the very different experiences they had during their time in uniform. Taking Utah Beach in Normandy on D-Day was much different than storming Omaha Beach. Both were vastly different than the island-hopping required of our troops in the Pacific Theater during World War II. The trench warfare in Korea, the silent jungle expeditions in Vietnam, the desert heat and door-to-door searches in the Global War on Terror — every soldier, sailor, airman and Marine can tell a different story of his or her service, their individual contribution to America’s freedom and security.

No two veterans are the same, and it’s worth our time to talk to them and learn what they did to protect us. The Library Sen. Damon of Congress, Thayer along with the e n t u c k y Community K Department of Recorder Libraries and guest Archives, are columnist focusing their efforts on an oral history project, collecting these stories from veterans across the nation, so that future generations can understand why things happened the way they happened. This is our opportunity to help preserve the legacies of the men and women who fought and died to keep us safe. The Library of Congress has a list of sample questions at, which you can use to help explore the lives of the veterans in our community. When you’ve recorded your interview with a veteran you know — or a veteran you’ve gotten to know — just contact KDLA or the Library of Congress, and they’ll work to archive your work and make sure children, scholars, and genealogists of the future understand these heroes’ stories. We’re losing our veterans at a rapid pace, and they are a true great resource of wisdom and knowledge. We cannot afford to let their memories slip through our grasp. They saved our country’s past, and this is an opportunity for us to help save its future. Senator Thayer represents the 17th Senate District, which includes Grant, Owen, and Scott Counties and part of Kenton County. He welcomes your concerns or comments toll-free at 800-372-7181, or at

Book discussion groups expand reading horizons As a librarian at the Kenton County Public Library, one of my favorite responsibilities is leading book discussion groups. I am currently in charge of two groups at the Erlanger Branch: The PageTurners, which reads both fiction and non-fiction, and The Movie Makers, where we discuss a book that's been made into a film and then watch and compare a short clip from the movie. I love talking about the books and hearing everyone's opinions and reactions. I recently asked the participants in one of my book groups what interested them in joining, and what keeps them coming back? To my delight, I received some really great responses. Everyone agrees that being involved in book discussions has broadened their reading horizons. While we all have our personal interests (mysteries, biographies, etc.), it's fun to mix it up and try something different, something you might not normally pick up on your own. Because we are of varying ages and backgrounds, each of us has a unique viewpoint and we bring our own personal perspectives to the discussions. And while we often agree on things, differing opinions are welcome -

after all, what's a discussion without a little spice? How nice to be able to talk in a non-judgmental and comfortable atmosphere! Leigh Mauer Enthusiasm Community and participaRecorder tion in talking reading guest about experiences crecolumnist ates a real feeling of belonging. It's wonderful to see friendships formed and the sense of community that's established among my group members. Several folks also voiced the opinion that “it's a great thing to do when you're retired” because it is so social in nature. As we talk about the book of the month, we always end up referring to other books we enjoyed - I promise you will end up with some fabulous recommendations, just like I have! I really feel it's a wonderful way to expand your education too, but no worrying about grades. Hurrah! We have four outstanding regular book discussion groups here at Erlanger. The Bookies meet at 7

p.m. on the first Wednesday of the month; The Protagonists get together at 7 p.m. on the third Wednesday of the month; and The Page-Turners convene at 2 p.m. on the third Thursday. Our 2010 schedule has been finalized, and our reading group choices include “The Guernsey Literary” and “Potato Peel Pie Society” by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows; “Three Cups of Tea” by Greg Mortenson; “All the Living” by C.E. Morgan; “Rocket Boys” by Homer Hickam, as well as many other popular and engaging books. Our fourth group, The Movie Makers, meets at 10 a.m. on the second Wednesday of the month. We'll be talking about and looking at “About a Boy” by Nick Hornby, “All the King's Men” by Robert Penn Warren, “The Princess Bride” by William Goldman, and nine additional enticing titles. There are also book groups at our Covington and Independence branches. Look for Adult Book Discussion brochures at the library, or check out the KCPL website, for complete lists of our 2010 discussion titles. New members are always welcome! Join us!

Calling all germs


Dr. Mike Scola, a biology professor at NKU, collects germs from the mouth of second-grade St. Augustine School student John Paul Russell during his lesson to teach the students about germs. He collected germ samples from different places in the classroom and he will grow them in a petri dish. The students are excited to find out where the germiest place is.

Strong fathers a great program

The evidence is clear that a strong father figure can make all the difference in the development of children, especially with boys. When you look at the data on this issue, it is so convincing and depressing that it’s amazing that as a society we have not done more to encourage strong father figures. All the millions of dollars the federal, state and local governments spend on social problems could be saved if we as a society were successful in making this issue a priority. Recently, I had the pleasure of attending programs at Burlington Elementary and A.M. Yealey Elementary, appropriately called “Strong Fathers, Strong Families.” To the credit of our Boone County school system this free program was offered in many of our ele-

m e n t a r y schools’ Family Resource Centers to encourage “Strong Fathers, Strong Families.” No Child Left Behind SuperviState Sen. sor Dr. Anna Tracy John Marie Schickel shared with me that the district Community recognizes the Recorder importance of guest p a r e n t a l nvolvement columnist iand the relationship it has on academic performance. It was a joy to see literally hundreds of Boone County fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, uncles and even big

brothers and others stepping up to the plate to fulfill the role of “Strong Fathers, Strong Families.” The program was an excellent mix of validation and encouragement for fathers and sons alike. We are fortunate that our community has a school system that recognizes and promotes the development of one of our most valued resources: strong fathers. As your state senator, I saw firsthand the value of our Family Resource Centers and will continue making them a priority as we work to provide the best possible future for our children. Sen. John Schickel represents Kentucky’s 11th Senate District in Boone, Gallatin and Kenton counties. He can be contacted by calling the General Assembly’s toll-free message line at (800) 372-7181.

Bring your valuables on down to the Great Treasure Hunt Antique and Collectible Buy Show in Fort Mitchell and leave with cash in hand! The Treasure Hunters are located at the Drawbridge Inn from Tuesday until Saturday to pump money back into the rapidly declining economy. With unemployment reaching 10.4% in Kentucky, there is no doubt that Fort Mitchell locals are in need of fast cash. The Treasure Hunters will make an offer for anything of value, so come down to the Drawbridge Inn for a free appraisal. “We will sort through boxes of collectibles and bags of coins and jewelry if you let us,” says Treasure Hunter Kenny Davis, but

that is not all they buy. They have purchased anything from comic books and tin toys to basketball jerseys and rare vintage guitars. The easiest way to know what coins are of value, the Treasure

Hunters explain, is to look at the date. U.S. coins made before 1965 are valuable because of their high silver content, and they can be worth more if they happen to be a rare date. The Treasure Hunters can test precious metals on site, as well. If there is any doubt of the carat content, the experts will be able to find out within minutes. They will buy broken chains, earring studs, diamonds, class rings, and much, much more. Nothing is too big or too small. Judy came in yesterday to sell her old jewelry. “I can’t believe I almost threw my broken chains away!” she said. “I’m so glad I checked [the Buy Show] out!”

The Treasure Hunters will be set up at the Drawbridge Inn Tuesday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday - Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Scrap gold and coins are the most common items they buy, but there have been some interesting finds. Just recently someone came in with an African soul washer. After a quick call to verify the

value, the Treasure Hunters made a hefty offer and a happy exchange. Some other purchased treasures include a baseball jersey belonging to St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Stan Musial, the estate of late baseball Hall of Famer Ty Cobb, and a certified 3-carat diamond engagement ring. Sharon Egan of Canton, OH brought in her father’s old baseball cards, hoping to make some fast cash. “My daughter is turning 5,” she said, smiling. “I want to throw her a big birthday party.” The cards had been sitting in her attic since her father passed away, and she said she had never considered that they might be worth money. The sale was quick and happy. She made $1310. She exclaimed, “I can throw my daughter’s sweet sixteen off what the Treasure Hunters gave me!”

On the Treasure Hunters’ last trip to Pottsville, PA, they discovered an unexpected gem. Treasure Hunter Will Whitaker reports, “I couldn’t believe we had come across a Gibson F-5 because they are so rare!” With a speedy call to Kenny Davis, the Treasure Hunters quickly learned of the mandolin’s authenticity. It was genuine. The Treasure Hunters met the seller’s asking price enthusiastically, and the Gibson F-5 became a found treasure. The seller made a very large profit

Treasure Hunter Experts buy Collections In addition to purchasing individual items, the Treasure Hunters have over 20 years of experience buying large collections, as well; including collections of baseball cards, watches, coins, and guitars. Thomas Cooke of Bowling Green, KY came in to the Great Treasure Hunt Antique and Collectible Roadshow in hopes of selling some old comic

on the mandolin and left the show with a great deal of cash in hand.

Finished with an ultra-thin, handbrushed varnish and hand-applied French polish, the Gibson F-5 Master Model is the ultimate in sound and beauty.

books he collected as a child. “I used to collect all sorts of comics,” Cooke reported, “but I don’t have much use for them anymore.” The Treasure Hunters sifted through the boxes of issues with care and patience. Cooke received quite a return on his collection: he paid less than 25 cents for each issue in his youth and walked out of the Roadshow with $6000 for around 230 comics. “I nearly fell off my chair!” Cooke exclaimed. “I never knew they would be worth that much.” When asked what he would do with the money, Cooke said he planned on buying a fishing boat and a new rod.

With gold at an all-time high, it is no wonder she received such a large sum. “What’s great,” Jane exclaimed, “is that this was all just sitting in an old jewelry box in the back of my closet!” The Treasure Hunters turned her unwanted jewelry into much needed cash in less than 15 minutes.

En Vogue Salon & Boutique owner Cynthia Boyle Tilton models a dichroic glass necklace in her shop in Crescent Springs Wednesday Nov. 4. Cynthia and her husband create dichroic glass jewelry themselves and sell them in the boutique along with wares by other local artisans.

Get chic at En Vogue By Regan Coomer

En Vogue Salon & Boutique in Crescent Springs hopes to keep women looking “of the moment” with a full service hair salon and boutique featuring works by local artists. “They leave happy and feel better about themselves. We make each person look better and a lot of ladies shopping in the boutique know they’re helping out area artists,” said owner and color specialist Cynthia Boyle Tilton. En Vogue Salon & Boutique, located at 578 Buttermilk Pike, is open Tuesday through Saturday with flexible hours, so Cynthia recommends calling 360-1233 for an appointment. However, walk-ins are also welcome. The boutique portion of En Vogue carries paintings, embroidered bags, jewelry, crafts and more by local artists, most of them women, Cynthia said, adding she’s glad to provide a venue for artists who may not otherwise get their crafts out to the public. Along with her husband, Cynthia also creates dichroic glass jewelry. Colors in dichroic glass change according to lighting or background or even the

angle you’re looking at it, she said. Every pieces comes out different after being fired in the kiln, if even you don’t want it to. “There’s no one else who can have the same piece because the consistency changes and the color changes each time,” she said. “I get an extreme amount of compliments on the jewelry I wear just because it’s unique and it changes color in the sun and against any skin tone.” Women’s hair cuts start at $30 and men’s at $20. Prices in the boutique range from about $14 to $500, so there’s something for everybody, Cynthia said. “We want people to have something nice and unique that doesn’t break the bank,” she said. As a special for the holidays, En Vogue Salon & Boutique is offering a chance for shoppers to win a pendant worth over $250 if they make a $15 purchase in the store form now until Dec. 23. The winner will be announced Dec. 24. “Hair is a creative outlet for me,” Cynthia said. “I like to get to know people. My clients have become my friends and they’ve stuck by me after all these years. Now they’re bringing their grandkids to me.”

Villa Madonna first-grader Caleb Sanders leads his classmates in sorting some of the Halloween candy they plan to donate to area shelters this year. The two firstgrade classes at VMA have both been very active in service work and trying to help out their community.

VMA first-graders already in the mood for giving

By Jason Brubaker

For many first-graders, there are few things more important in life than candy and playtime. For the firstgraders at Villa Madonna Academy however, they’ve got some other priorities. Both first-grade classes at the school, with help from teachers Theresa Spaulding-Horn and Rosie Heideman, are participating in some food drives to help out the less fortunate residents of the Greater Cincinnati area. The kids in Spaulding-Horn’s class are donating portions of their Halloween candy to shelters in Cincinnati, while others in Heideman’s class have organized a canned food drive in connection the Wal-Mart in Fort Wright. “To have first-graders thinking about giving back is something that makes me very proud,” said Principal Soshana Bosley. “That’s the attitude we want all of our kids to have.” The canned food drive was born on the VMA playground one day in late October, when twins Sophie and Reese

Holtzman were talking with their classmates and thinking of ways they could help people out. With a little help from their teacher and parents, they were soon able to arrange a deal with Wal-Mart, standing outside for a few hours in early November to collect donations from customers. “I was at a program this summer where we had to donate canned goods, and it made me think that this was a good way to help out,” explained Sophie a few days before the drive. “I hope we’re able to get a lot, because that would mean we can help a lot of people out.” But they’re not the only ones looking to make a difference this holiday season. The theme of helping out the less fortunate is also found just down the hall in Spaulding-Horn’s room, where the kids have been sorting their Halloween candy to distribute to a few shelters and charities in the area. “We normally try to collect enough to give to around 100-150 people, but that number has gone up this year,” explained Spaulding-Horn. “But with

the economy, there’s more people in need, so we’re just trying to do as much as we can to make an impact.” And the kids weren’t just giving away their leftovers. All of the kids were encouraged to include some of their favorite candy they collected this year, as they learned the true meaning of giving. “It wasn’t hard, because it’s for people who don’t have very much,” said first-grader Caleb Sanders, as he sorted through a bag filled with miniature candy bars, suckers, gum and Tootsie Rolls. “It makes you feel good to help people out.” Amy Holtzman, the twins’ mother who has been helping to organize the food drive, said she was incredibly proud of all of the kids for giving their time and effort to help out people in need. “It’s fantastic to see kids this age thinking about helping others,” she said. Bosley agreed. “It’s really neat that they’re able to do this,” she said. “This is the perfect season to give back, and they’re doing a great job of doing just that.”

Coordinator of teen shelter like mother to kids When runaway, homeless and troubled teens feel like they have no place to go, Homeward Bound Shelter Coordinator Kate Arthur is there for them. At the shelter, located in Covington, Arthur works to recognize each individual teen’s needs and does whatever she has to do to get their life on track, said Connie Frecing, the youth service department director for Brighton Center, the agency that runs the shelter. “Kate does whatever it takes to get the job done and goes over and beyond what is asked of her,” Frecing said. “She is a huge advocate for youth and her connection to these kids is just unbelievable.” Bear Clifton, development director for the center, said Kate is like a mom to the teens, who in many cases have nobody they can depend on. Kate, who has been with the

Brighton Center in various positions for five years, said she has a natural feeling to want to help others. “I absolutely love my job and working with the teens,” Kate said. “I have a great staff and we work very hard at making the shelter a home environment.” Kate, a Villa Hills resident, has won various awards for her work, most recently the Brighton Center’s 2009 Super Nova Award. Kate said the administration at the Brighton Center pushes employees to do everything they can to help others and that helps to continually make the agency’s programs better. Currently, Arthur is working to expand the shelter’s program that assists 17 and 18 year olds prepare for living on their own. “We are trying to teach them how to be adults and take care of themselves,” Kate said. “These kids really

Hear what some of your friends think of you Father Lou Guntzelman Perspectives

A Christian prudence is more than a m e r e shrewdness to win your case or a v o i d harsh con-

sequences. It’s more similar to an innate common sense. Prudence is the intellectual ability to choose the right means toward a worthy end. You know how often we struggle with puzzling questions of how to spend our money, where to direct our time, how to handle the competing demands of our lives, how to settle differ-

ences, etc. A student may wrestle with dilemmas such as, “I think it would be more responsible to stay home and study for the test and not to go to the movies; yet, I’ve been working hard, maybe I deserve a break or find time to do both.” A judgment is called for. A prudent judgment. Situations crying for a prudent decision seem endless in life: how to break bad news gently; whether to punish a fault or let it go this time; how much to become further involved in a risky or flirtatious relationship; what legislation to vote for in an election that will best promote the common good, etc.? All such matters, great and small, are governed by

prudence. We become a prudent and wise person not in making one prudent decision. Prudence is the acquired habit of always, or nearly always, choosing the right means to achieve morally good ends. At times it can be agonizing and demand much of us. Former Yale chaplain William Sloane Coffin said, “The first of the four cardinal virtues of the Roman Catholic Church is ‘prudentia,’ which basically means damn good thinking. Christ came to take away our sins, not our minds.” Yes, prudence takes damn good thinking – not merely egotistically deciding what fits my agenda. If we develop prudence, it usually comes from the

bacteria and feces, and a product to control m o l d , mildew and funshe Howard Ain gus,” said. That, Hey Howard! plus a whole lot more, came to $1,000. After the serviceman left, friends and other companies she contacted all raised questions about the air duct cleaning – including whether she really had mold as the serviceman claimed. So, she called and requested a refund, but it was denied. “They said because they had already done the treatment they put it through,” said Smith. I showed Smith the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommendation about duct cleaning. It said duct cleaning has never been shown to actually prevent health problems.

action, the essence of moral judgment itself is the astute and wise judgment we exercise by sifting through all the alternatives presented by the concrete world. And since the alternatives are often so complex, wise judgment is itself a skill and constitutes the virtue called prudence. So, if you hear some friends have called you the most prudent person they know, smile, don’t frown. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Reach him at m or contact him directly at P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242. Please include a mailing address or fax number if you wish for him to respond.


Duct cleaning cleans out wallet A local woman says she now regrets ever responding to an ad for air duct cleaning. Although the price in the ad sounded good, she says she had no idea what she was getting herself into. What happened to her should be a cautionary tale for everyone. Nicole Smith of Fort Thomas says she now realizes she should have doublechecked before agreeing to more and more duct cleaning after responding to an ad. “It said they would clean 14 vents and one return for $49.95. I was like, ‘They’re not that dirty, just kind of sweep it through and get it out of there,’ ” she said. Smith said when the serviceman arrived things were different. “He even refused to clean the ducts because he said they had to have something done. He wouldn’t do it, he said he had to treat it first,” she said. Smith ended up agreeing to a host of things. “It was treatment for a sanitizer to control germs,

widest possible observation and experience of human behavior, understanding what constitutes psychological health, and a conscientious awareness of the general moral principles with which God has imbued mankind. Prudence has little correlation with book learning. Some people seem to develop it more readily, some otherwise intelligent persons appear slow to catch on, and geniuses may be totally deficient. Making prudent choices is often laborious, yet the complexities of life make it ever more necessary. Thomas Aquinas claimed that the central moral virtue was prudence. While love is the underlying motive for moral

“I really wish I would have read this beforehand,” Smith told me. The EPA said much of the dirt and dust in air ducts simply adheres to the duct surfaces and does not necessarily enter the living space. So, it said, cleaning should be considered for only severe cases of mold, dust and debris. The EPA also said, “Pollutants that enter the home both from outdoors and indoor activities such as cooking, cleaning, smoking or just moving around can cause greater exposure to contaminants than dirty air ducts.” I contacted the company Smith had hired, explained how it failed to give her three days in which to cancel, as required by law, and the company has now given Smith all her money back.

If, in your absence, some friends of yours said you were one of the most prudent people they knew – would you feel complimented or criticized? Prudence sounds a lot like “prude,” doesn’t it? So, are you offended? What is prudence, and what does it mean to be prudent? Prudence is the first of four virtues traditionally named as the most important in the ethical order. As far back as Plato and Aristotle the virtues of prudence, justice, fortitude and temperance have been praised. In “A Concise Dictionary of Theology,” Gerald Collins S. J. says that prudence “entails the capacity to translate general norms and ideals into practice.”

An easy beef stir fry, a colorful Jell-O dessert Whenever I’m out and about, someone will come up and mention the column. It keeps me aware of what you want. A few weeks ago Rita I got an Heikenfeld unusual Rita’s kitchen request for e a s y , healthy meals. Now that part of the request is not unusual, but the fellow who asked is a bit unusual in that he has some ties to a pretty important “person.” Father Rob Waller, pastor at St. Andrew’s in Milford, needed healthier recipes “a bachelor like me could make.” I sent him some and I’m thinking that my little favor might result in Father Rob putting in a good word for me with the “right people.” If you have easy recipes for folks like Father Rob, please share.

Rita’s easy stir-fry beef with green onions and tomatoes

If you want, add a handful of snow peas or bean sprouts with tomatoes and onions. 1 pound or less flank steak, thinly sliced across grain 1 ⁄4 cup or more to taste, soy sauce 1 tablespoon cornstarch 4 tomatoes cut into wedges (if they’re big, use 2) 1 bunch green onions, sliced thin Canola or peanut oil Hot cooked rice More soy if desired Combine beef, soy and cornstarch. Marinate anywhere from five minutes to a day. Film bottom of large skillet with oil. Stir fry beef in batches, adding oil as needed. Place back into skillet and add tomatoes and onions. Cook until hot. Add more soy if desired. Serve over rice.

Velma Papenhaus’ three-layer holiday paradise Jell-O loaf

Funny how far a friendship can take you. Dick Herrick, a Mason reader, and I have been friends since we met at Alvey Ferguson, a conveyor company in Oakley, eons ago. I was a bilingual secretary and Dick was an interning college student. Dick’s former neighbors, the Papenhauses, have been close friends of his family for many years. That friendship and this column led Velma to me with her favorite Jell-O recipe . “Red on bottom, white in middle and green on top. Very colorful for holidays,” she said. I think Velma should invite Dick and me over to enjoy a big plateful! Velma uses a Pyrex dish, about 11-by-8.

First layer:

1 pkg. cherry Jell-O, 4 serving size 13⁄4 cups very hot water 1 cup chopped apple

Mix Jell-O and water until Jell-O dissolves, stir in apple, and pour in casserole. Let gel before pouring on layer No. 2.

Second layer:

1 pkg. lemon Jell-O, 4 serving size 6 oz. cream cheese, softened 13⁄4 cups pineapple juice and water (pineapple juice comes from pineapple used in layer No. 3. Pour juice into measuring cup and fill with water to make 13⁄4 cups. Heat until very hot). 1 cup chopped nuts Mix Jell-O, cream cheese and juice/water until Jell-O dissolves and cream cheese is smooth. Put in refrigerator to gel just enough so nuts can be mixed in easily. Pour onto first layer. Let gel before pouring on layer No. 3.

Third layer:

1 pkg. lime Jell-O, 4 serving size 13⁄4 cups very hot water 1 can, approximately 20 oz., crushed pineapple, drained (save juice for layer No. 2)

Mix Jell-O and water until Jell-O dissolves. Put in fridge to gel just enough so pineapple can be mixed in easily. Pour onto second layer.

• Withrow High chess pie. M. Miles remembers the chess pie at Withrow High in the 1960s. “The version served now is not the same as was served in Cincinnati Public schools back then. The original pie didn’t contain cornstarch.” • Spaghetti Factory’s linguine with clam sauce. For Della, Bellevue, Ky. “The best – any ideas how it was made?” • Mullane’s soft taffy. For Liza Sunnenberg, a Wyoming reader. “Years ago in Cincinnati, there was a candy company named Mullane’s Taffy. They had two kinds: opaque, like you see all around; the other was rather translucent and just a wee bit softer. The company disappeared and I would love to know how to make the translucent taffy or purchase it.”


My editor, Lisa Mauch, is my best researcher. Here's what she found on the Web regarding Mullane’s: • In 1848, William and Mary Mullane opened a small store in the West End and began selling taffy and molasses candy. (Cincinnati Magazine) • In the 1940s, Mullane’s operated a tea shop/restaurant in the arcade of the Carew Tower. Eventually the restaurant closed and was sold, but the name Mullane's was retained and a small restaurant by that name operated on Race Street between Seventh and Eighth streets until 2004. ( • In 1959, George and Marilyn Case purchased the 111-year-old Mullane Taffy Company, which shipped its goodies all over the world, and moved it to larger quarters in Norwood. (Billboard Magazine).

*Annual percentage yield (APY) is accurate as of date of publication. 1.64% rate (1.65% APY) referenced in any of the following tiers is guaranteed for at least 90 days from the date of account opening then may change at any time as the Huntington Premier Plus Money Market Account (HPPMMA) is a variable rate account. Different rates apply to different balance tiers. Rates and corresponding APYs listed in the tiers that do not earn 1.64% (1.65% APY) are also variable and subject to change without notice even prior to the first 90 days. Initial minimum opening deposit required is $20,000.00 and must be new money to Huntington. The interest rate for balances $0.01-$19,999.99 is 0.00% (0.00% APY); the interest rate for the following balance tiers, $20,000.00 to $49,999.99, $50,000.00 to $99,999.99, and $100,000.00 to $2,000,000.99 is currently 1.64% (1.65% APY) and will apply for at least 90 days. This is our current standard rate for HPPMMA opened October 12, 2009 or later. Balances $2,000,001.00 to $999,999,999.99 do not qualify for the 1.64% (1.65% APY); current standard rate for that balance tier is 0.80% (0.80% APY) and subject to change at any time. After the first 90 (ninety) days, the rates in all tiers are not guaranteed and subject to change at any time. When your balance falls into a particular rate tier, your entire balance will earn the applicable rate in effect for that tier, i.e., if your balance reaches $2,000,001.00 or more, your entire balance will earn that lower rate. Balances below $20,000.00 are subject to a $20.00 per month maintenance fee. Interest is compounded and paid monthly. Limit one account per household. CHECKING ACCOUNT REQUIREMENT & CONDITIONS: Customer must also have, or open, a consumer checking account with a $1,500.00 balance which must be titled in the same name(s) as the HPPMMA. Depending on your type of checking account, it may or may not be interest-bearing which will impact the overall return of your total funds on deposit. If checking account is not maintained, the HPPMMA will be converted to our Huntington Premier Money Market Account which has lower rates in all respective rate tiers and does not receive the 1.64 % (1.65% APY) on any balance tier. APPLICABLE TO BOTH HPPMMA AND CHECKING ACCOUNTS: Fees may reduce earnings on the account. An Early Account Closing fee will apply to accounts closed within 180 days of opening.
