Covington moves toward another redevelopment Former college campus site of proposed 82-home subdivision Melissa Reinert Cincinnati Enquirer USA TODAY NETWORK
Overlooking Covington, the 27.7-acre site of the former Hilltop Campus of Gateway Community & Technical College now has a plan for the future. That plan is for an 82-home subdivision. Covington moved forward in the process, OK’ing a concept plan for the Park Pointe project, adding stipulations regarding issues related to entrance roads and drainage. Covington City Commission voted 5-0 to grant two requests related to the Park Pointe project, which would build single-family homes on the site, located on the west side of West Pike Street as it becomes Dixie Highway. If the redevelopment reaches ﬁnal approval, the developer will invest about $55 million toward the project. Most of the land – 20.2 acres – is in Covington, with the rest in Park Hills. Developer Paul Zeltwanger, who owns Condoview LLC, applied for two things from Covington: ❚ A zone change for a small portion of the property – about 1.6 acres – to match the zoning classiﬁcation of the rest of the land and create ﬂexibility in meeting standards like setback requirements; ❚ and approval of the Stage 1 Development Plan depicting a conceptual design of the proposed subdivision for the land that is in Covington. The City Commission voted “yes” on both of those requests with three conditions: ❚ That there would be no road leading to the subdivision directly from Pike Street/Dixie Highway; ❚ That Park Hills open the closed portion of Old State Road so cars and emergency vehicles could get to the homes; ❚ and that Condoview takes steps to reduce drainage, address storm runoﬀ issues aﬀecting neighbor-

ing properties, and stabilize hillsides – and be able to conﬁrm their plans with the city should it ask for documentation. As part of its passed ordinance, the Covington City Commission also reserved the right to review the ﬁnal development plan for the site. Covington City Manager David Johnston said oﬃcials are trying to set up a meeting with Park Hills oﬃcials to discuss the road issues. Plans for approval of the Park Hills portion of the proposed development go through a separate process in that city. Park Hills Mayor Matt Mattone could not be reached for comment. According to developer Paul Zeltwanger, the project would include freestanding homes in a maintenance-free community most of which have singlelevel living on the lower level. “More than half of (the homes) will come with spectacular views of Northern Kentucky and Downtown Cincinnati and the other ones with wooded backyards,” he said. The homes will be priced from $575,000 to $900,000. If approved, Zeltwanger hopes to start construction in late 2018 or early 2019. “We have been working very closely with Sanitation District No. 1, Covington and Park Hills to not only address the drainage, erosion and road issues but to also improve the stormwater issues in the whole area,” he said. Zeltwanger, who has been involved with projects like The Views, Watersedge, Park Manor and The Overlook at Eden Park, said he is excited about the possibility of being a part of all the positive things being done in Covington. He believes Park Pointe will be a good ﬁt. “With Devou Park within walking distance of the development, this is truly a unique urban community with all the beneﬁts of being close to a beautiful park and all the restaurants and entertainment that Covington and the surrounding area provides,” he said.

As of May 2018, over 95 percent of people in the civilian labor force in Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties are employed. Businesses expanding and opening along with the implementation of programs and policies are a few of those factors contributing to this increase. Judge-executive Gary Moore of Boone County and Judge-executive Kris Knochelmann of Kenton County believe Northern Kentucky’s economy is at its prime. Jobless rates are Boone County, 3.2 percent; Campbell County, 3.1 percent; and Kenton County, 3.3 percent, according to the Kentucky Center for Statistics, an agency of the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet. The statewide rate was 4.2 percent for May, with 3.6 percent for the nation. “Northern Kentucky is open for business. Companies want to come here because some of the state policies that have been changing have been making it more conducive for job growth in Northern Kentucky,” Knochelmann said. “Northern Kentucky oﬀers a competitive business climate built on low tax burdens, competitive incentive packages, and below-average utility costs,” according to the Northern Kentucky Tri-County Economic Development Corp. Tri-ED tracks and promotes economic growth and fosters regional cooperation in Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties. Area high schools and colleges are partnering with the community to help ﬁll the open positions. For juniors and seniors interested in pursuing a job in manufacturing, the Boone County Schools created a path with Gateway Community and Technical College to earn a certiﬁcate in manufacturing. “We are told by the Northern Kentucky Industrial Park Association that they are short 600 plus posiSee EMPLOYMENT, Page 2A

tions that they need workers for that they cannot ﬁnd,” Moore said. “We are trying to create a pipeline to those manufacturers with the program.” Businesses opening and expanding “I don’t know any business that isn’t hiring. I think that everybody is looking for employees right now from distribution to manufacturing to the service industry. I think every sector is hiring,” Knochelmann said. Moore shares the same sentiments describing Boone County as the “employment center for the region.” Among growing businesses in Boone County are contractors, Amazon, DHL, Wayfair’s fulﬁllment centers, retail and manufacturers such as Bosch, Mubea and Safran. The Kentucky Center for Education and Workforce Statistics created a workforce proﬁle that illustrates a ﬁve-year projection of industry sectors that could be in high demand: ❚ Health sciences ❚ Businesses and IT services ❚ Advanced manufacturing ❚ Transportation and logistics ❚ Construction and trades “You’re going to have more jobs, more opportunities, more cooperation among the region which makes it a better and better place to work and to grow a business,” Knochelmann said. “This is just the beginning.”

Man who used child as human shield sent to prison for wanton endangerment Cameron Knight Cincinnati Enquirer USA TODAY NETWORK
A man who used his own two-yearold child as a human shield to charge police was recently sentenced to 10 years in prison. Anthony Smith, 53, had a dramatic standoﬀ with Elsmere police on Oct. 16. Smith’s girlfriend called police around 4 a.m. that Monday. She said he was armed with a knife and might be high on methamphetamine, prosecutors said. Police said they found Smith inside
the Edwards Road home holding a knife, but could not arrest him because he was standing behind his child. Eventually, police were able to get the todAnthony dler away from Smith, Smith but then he retreated to a bathroom with another one of his children. “After repeated requests by law enforcement for Smith to drop the knife or send out the child, Smith charged at ofﬁcers while armed with the knife and
Federal judge rejects Kentucky rules requiring Medicaid recipients to work Chris Mayhew Cincinnati Enquirer USA TODAY NETWORK
A federal judge rejected Kentucky’s new rules requiring Medicaid recipients to work – the ﬁrst attempt in the nation to impose such requirements. Gov. Matt Bevin championed Kentucky’s Medicaid 1115 waiver program, named Kentucky HEALTH. Campbell County in Northern Kentucky was set to be the ﬁrst county in America to require adults to work for Medicaid beneﬁts starting last Sunday. U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg of Washington, D.C., vacated Kentucky’s Medicaid waiver in a 60-page ruling last Friday afternoon. The judge sent Kentucky HEALTH back to the commonwealth’s Department of Health and Human Services for further review. Kentucky’s program targeted adults
covered by Medicaid expansion oﬀered under the Aﬀordable Care Act in 2010, said Boasberg. Before Medicaid expansion in Kentucky, only the disabled, blind and needy families with dependent Adam Meier children were covered by Medicaid. “Defendants in this case have sought to roll back those reforms,” Boasberg said in his ruling. In a statement from Adam Meier, secretary of Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, the ruling could result in “signiﬁcant beneﬁt reductions.” “The Court’s ruling invalidates Kentucky HEALTH on a very narrow basis. The Court concluded that the HHS Secretary simply failed to consider the impact of Kentucky HEALTH on Medicaid coverage. While we disagree with the Court’s ruling, which delays implementation of Kentucky HEALTH, we look forward to working with CMS to quickly resolve the single issue raised by the Court so that we can move forward with Kentucky HEALTH. Without prompt implementation of Kentucky HEALTH, we will have no choice but to make signiﬁcant beneﬁt reductions,” Meier said in a press statement issued late Friday afternoon. “Kentucky HEALTH is an innovative, thoughtfully crafted program that will strengthen Medicaid by engaging beneﬁciaries in their own health outcomes. Able-bodied Kentuckians deserve to have a stake in their health and will beneﬁt from the dignity that comes from career training, education, and volunteer opportunities that are available as part of Kentucky HEALTH’s community engagement program. We will ﬁght to preserve these opportunities for our citi-

zens so that we can proceed with the only viable path forward for expanded Medicaid in Kentucky,” concluded Meier, a Fort Thomas resident. Kentucky’s program would have required able-bodied adults to work 80 hours a month, train for a job or volunteer to maintain Medicaid beneﬁts. Pregnant women and people with chronic health problems would have been exempt. President Donald Trump’s administration approved Bevin’s Medicaid waiver plan on Jan. 12. Since then, several other states, including Indiana, have been approved for or are seeking similar work requirements, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal. On Jan. 24, 16 Kentuckians fearing changes in their Medicaid coverage ﬁled the class-action lawsuit in Washington against Kentucky and the federal government. People suing to stop the Medicaid waiver include Amanda Spears, 33, of Park Hills, and David Roode, 39, of Ludlow. Attorneys for the National Health Law Program, Kentucky Equal Justice Center and the Southern Poverty Law Center handled the case. Medicaid covers about 1.4 million people in Kentucky. About half of them are children. The federal-state program also covers people with low incomes and the elderly. “Kentucky Voices for Health and our partners applaud the court’s decision to support Kentuckians on Medicaid by refusing to create additional barriers,” said Emily Beauregard, executive director for Kentucky Voices for Health. The advocacy group Kentucky Voices for Health gathered comments from Kentucky residents, more than 3,000 of them, opposed to the new Medicaid waiver program.

using the two-year-old child held across his body as a shield,” the Kenton County Commonwealth’s Attorney Rob Sanders said in a news release. The oﬃcers were able to subdue Smith without injuring the child, Sanders said. A jury convicted Smith of wanton endangerment in Kenton County Circuit Count in April. Considering his two prior felony convictions, Judge Patricia Summe sentenced Smith to 10 years in prison. He is currently being held at the Kenton County Jail.

Boy with foot stuck in train rescued in NKY Chris Mayhew
Cincinnati Enquirer USA TODAY NETWORK
A boy whose foot was stuck between two boxcars was rescued by a train crew and ﬁreﬁghters last week in Crescent Springs, according to a ﬁre department news release. Fireﬁghters were dispatched at 5:29 p.m. Tuesday, July 3, to help a juvenile with his foot pinned between two steel couplers of a northbound Norfolk Southern train.
BRIEFLY COVINGTON Quit for Good The Commonwealth of Kentucky has the highest smoking rates of any state in the U.S. The city of Covington and Gallatin County’s rates are double the national average. In an eﬀort to help community members quit smoking in these areas, Build NKY and The Center for Great Neighborhoods are introducing the Quit for Good Community Grant Program. This program provides grant funding of $250 to $500 to community members who come up with and implement ways to reduce and prevent tobacco usage. Any Covington or Gallatin County residents, students, or workers are eligible to submit their proposals. Contact Kate
The boy was a stowaway. Fireﬁghters found his foot pinched three inches below the top of two couplers which link train cars together. Credit for saving the boy’s life goes to Norfolk Southern train engineer Brad Sorrell, said Jeﬀ Wendt, chief of Crescent Springs-Villa Hills Fire Department. “Engineer Sorrell remained calm and his knowledge of how to uncouple the train most likely saved the young patient’s foot,” Wendt said.
Fireﬁghters, 911 dispatchers and train dispatchers all worked together with the train crew to coordinate the rescue, he said. Wendt and other ﬁreﬁghters on the scene have attended Norfolk Southern’s “Operation Lifesaver” program which promotes and teaches train safety. Fireﬁghters decided the only way to free the boy’s foot was to separate the two train cars. The rescue took about 20 minutes.

Rodney Pollitt Sr. says his family name died in a two-car crash on a winding Kenton County road last fall. Rodney Pollitt Jr. was driving to meet his ﬁancee’s dad on Oct. 26 when his Honda Accord, with Pollitt Sr.’s three grandchildren and soon-to-be daughter-in-law inside, was hit head-on by a speeding Honda Pilot driven by 58year-old Daniel Greis. “He was my only son,” he said. “We named him Junior. He’s gone. Those were my only grandchildren. And they are gone. Nothing is going to ﬁx that.” Prosecutors say Greis was under the inﬂuence of marijuana and was legally drunk when the Honda Pilot he was driving hit the family’s Honda Accord, killing Samantha Malohn, left, Pollitt Jr., 26, and Rodney Pollitt Samantha Jr.were killed. Malohn, 27, and their three children, Hailieann, 9, Brenden, 8, and 6-year-old Cailie. Pollitt Sr. knows what happens in court won’t bring back his family. He said he wants justice done. And he says that means accountability for Jesse Phillips, another motorist who was on the road with his family as well as the man currently on trial for the deaths of his loved ones. “I don’t think the 0.08 (blood alcohol level) or the marijuana had anything to do with it,” he said. “I think the cause of this accident was road rage and speed. They (Greis and Phillips) should both be on trial. I don’t want anybody to get

away with it. “If (Phillips) walks away from this without any charges, the system is broken.” Pollitt Sr. has been present to hear testimony in Kenton County Judge Patricia Summe’s courtroom, but said it was tough to hear the things said. It was tough to hear the prosecutor recount the injuries that killed his only son, Malohn and his grandbabies, strapped in the backseat. It was tough to hear the condition of the car and ﬁrst responders describe the crash as “one of the worst accidents” they had ever seen. It was tough to listen to the 911 call in which Jesse Phillips said he wouldn’t let Greis pass him as they traveled Staffordsburg Road. And it was really tough, he said, to listen to Phillips tell the dispatcher there were two dead passengers in the Honda Accord. “Those people are done,” Phillips said in the 911 call. That phrase tore at Pollitt. Eventually, he had to leave the courtroom. But he plans to come back this week, as the defense rests and the prosecution calls its rebuttal witnesses, closing arguments are made and the verdict rendered. He said he wants to see justice done.

Fresh twist on sausage brings meal to one skillet Seared sausage with rhubarb and Swiss chard
Rita’s Kitchen Rita Heikenfeld
From Melissa’s book “Dinner, Changing the Game.” What I love about this book is that each recipe can stand alone as dinner. Less pans and dishes to wash!
While I was tilling the vegetable garden, I glanced at the rhubarb and Swiss chard. Both needed to be picked. The perfect pair to use in a one plate recipe from Melissa Clark, food columnist and author for the New York Times. I interviewed Melissa and met her when she came to Cincinnati in May. What I ﬁnd amazing is that Melissa is not only a food writer/reporter, she has written nearly 40 cookbooks. Plus honors from James Beard Foundation and being a judge on Iron Chef America, to name just a couple of her achievements. Melissa was fun to talk to and we share a passion for food and what it means to sit at a table and eat with family and friends. Growing up in Brooklyn with parents who both cooked diﬀerent foods, Melissa was eager to learn, and learn she did. “Food was big in our family. The center of the house was our kitchen where we all hung out. I picked up basics of food in that Brooklyn kitchen”, she told me. Melissa has come a long way since then, yet her Brooklyn roots remain. She and her family still live there. One of the gifts she has is teaching cooking sans the angst. Watch one of her videos or leaf through her book “Dinner, Changing the Game/ Clarkson Potter” and you’ll be thinking: “I can do that.” Melissa navigates through a recipe easily and that means you will, too. So today I want you to get out of your comfort zone a bit, and try this one plate dinner. No worries if you don’t have a patch of rhubarb growing. It’s available in the frozen food section.
Rita’s Herbal Tip: Bay is a salt buster Adding bay allows you to use less salt and still have fantastic ﬂavor. Check out my articles in Countryside Magazine on this ancient and popular herb.
Melissa said sautéing rhubarb with chard, fresh ginger, currants, and a little maple syrup makes an unexpected and yummy sauce for a pan of seared sausages, which lend a crisp and porky punch. Melissa likes to serve this over polenta (recipe also in her book) but says barley or quinoa would work well, as would mashed potatoes. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 pound sweet Italian sausages, pricked with a fork 1 red onion, thinly sliced 1 bunch green, red, or rainbow Swiss chard, stems cut into 1/4 inch slices, leaves torn into bite-sized pieces 8 ounces rhubarb stems cut into 1/4 inch-thick slices
One-skillet seared sausage with rhubarb and Swiss chard can be dished out over polenta, barley or quinoa. RITA HEIKENFELD FOR THE COMMUNITY PRESS
2 tablespoons dried currants 2 tablespoons maple syrup 1 teaspoon garam masala 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Clariﬁcation Simple Lemon Cheesecake Recipe Seems like there’s some confusion, so I want to clarify: ❚ The cheesecake is baked in a regular 8-9” pie pan. You could use an 8” springform and just pat the graham cracker crust in on the bottom and as high as you can on the sides. You probably won’t have enough to go all the way up in the springform. That’s OK. ❚ This cheesecake does not bake up real high. It’s very creamy and yummy. ❚ After the cheesecake is taken out of the oven at 325 degrees, immediately turn the oven up to 450-500. ❚ Put the topping on and return the cheesecake to the hot oven for 5 minutes. That sets the topping. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. Find her blog at Abouteating.com. Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
One 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated 1 bay leaf SERVES 4 1. Heat oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausages and cook until cooked through and well browned all over, about 12 minutes. Transfer to plate. 2. Add onion to skillet and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in chard stems and continue to cook until onion is well browned and chard stems are almost tender, about 7 minutes. Add rhubarb, currants, maple syrup, garam masala, salt, ginger, and bay leaf. Cook, stirring often, until rhubarb has fallen apart and chard stems are tender, 7 to 10 minutes. If bottom of pan begins to scorch, stir in some water, a few tablespoons at a time. 3. Toss in chard leaves and cook, stirring frequently, until they are wilted, about 5 minutes. Transfer chard mixture to a heated serving platter and pluck out bay leaf. 4. Return sausages to skillet and heat through, shaking pan so they crisp a little on all sides, about 2 minutes. Serve sausages over the rhubarb-chard mixture.

Viewpoints Food preservation workshops coming to you Extending Knowledge Kathy R. Byrnes Guest Columnist Community Recorder
Few things taste better than freshpicked produce. My garden is doing great this summer and I am sure yours is too. You can savor the ﬂavor of summer’s bounty throughout the year and save money on groceries by preserving fresh fruits and vegetables. The Kenton County Cooperative Extension Service is teaching community members how to properly preserve a variety of foods by oﬀering two food preservation workshops. On Tuesday, July 24, we are oﬀering a “hands on” canning workshop at our Extension oﬃce located at 10990 Marshall Road, Covington. The workshop runs from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. and will feature experiences for all participants in both boiling water and pressure canning. We will also review freezing and drying foods for preservation purposes. There is a $10 fee for the workshop. This fee covers light breakfast, lunch; plus, food and supplies for your canning experiences. Our class size is limited, so if you are interested, contact our oﬃce immediately at 859-3563155. Interested in more in-depth information on freezing or canning? We are holding an additional workshop this year that will provide “hands on” freezing and drying experiences. This work-
shop will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 21 from 9 a.m.-Noon at our extension ofﬁce. There is no fee for this workshop, however a list of items to bring to the class about a week prior to the session. Participants in either of these workshops will gain the conﬁdence and experience needed to safely preserve food in their home kitchens. Food preservation techniques from the workshops are based on new recommendations and use the safest methods. By learning how to preserve food properly, residents will protect and maintain the health of their families. A ﬁnal reminder to those of you who are already conﬁdent in your canning ability. Dial gauge pressure canners should be tested for accuracy annually. We oﬀer that free service at our oﬃce; however, it is recommended that you call our oﬃce before you drop oﬀ your gauge or the gauge connected to the canner lid for a quick turn-around time. In addition, call us (859-3563155) or visit our website: kenton.ca.uky.edu/content/food-preservation to receive the most current food preservation information. Not everything you see on line is safe, and this is one area where we don’t want anyone experimenting! Educational programs of Kentucky Cooperative Extension serve all people regardless of race, color, age, sex, religion, disability, or national origin. Kathy R. Byrnes is a Family and Consumer Sciences agent at Kenton County Cooperative Extension Service.

New pension plan needed for incoming teachers Jim Waters Guest Columnist Community Recorder
The frustration expressed by Senate Majority Leader Damon Thayer following Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd’s decision to strike down a pension-reform law cobbled together originally as Senate Bill 1 and then watered down and pushed through during this year’s General Assembly session as a substitute for Senate Bill 151 (SB 151) – originally wastewater-treatment legislation – is understandable. “I’m tired of dealing with it,” Thayer, R-Georgetown, told reporters “It’s become hateful, hostile and toxic from the defenders of the status quo who are unwilling to accept a modicum of change just to put their pensions on the right track.” Thayer’s not exaggerating. The original pension legislation proposed a reduction in cost of living adjustments that would reduce the growth of the average retiree’s monthly check by the equivalent of a couple of cups of coﬀee each week while providing enormous relief to the pension system. However, “defenders of the status quo” weren’t having any of it. Thayer warns that if Shepherd’s decision stands, the commonwealth’s retirement plans will “continue to spiral downward” and “defenders of the status quo can declare victory and watch while our pension systems collapse.” Of course, if that were to happen, Thayer’s Grand Old Party would be blamed for allowing the implosion, even though the Republican-dominated legislature approved Gov. Matt Bevin’s proposal to spend 15 percent – or $3.3 billion – of the new state budget just on public pensions. Republicans with a supermajority in both legislative chambers also enacted a host of new taxes to fund the increased contributions – something even Democrats didn’t touch during their decades of power. Surrendering now would create a dilemma for Republicans, forcing them to decide what happens to those tax hikes should the pension bill get permanently

thwarted by the courts. A new Bluegrass Institute proposal attracting support from key members on both sides of the political aisle would hand those refusing to accept even “a modicum of change” their own dilemma. The proposal requires employers to contribute at the same levels as the cash-balance policy in SB 151 but also provides deﬁned beneﬁts for teachers by requiring plan administrators to adjust employees’ contributions, beneﬁtaccrual rates and retirement eligibility in order to maintain full funding of the systems without increasing those employer payroll-contribution rates covered by taxpayers. This represents a dramatic departure from the existing ﬂawed deﬁned-beneﬁt paradigm that allows lawmakers to award politically motivated beneﬁt enhancements that are repaid with interest and charged to future generations of taxpayers and public employers as a percentage of payroll – a strategy fraught with the potential to create massive unfunded liabilities and dramatic increases in employer payrollcontribution rates, even when longterm investment returns meet or exceed expectations. The tradeoﬀ: in exchange for eliminating a few egregious policies like using accrued sick days to spike ﬁnal compensation and lifetime pension payments or arbitrarily enhancing ﬁnal compensation formulas based solely on longevity, teachers in this new plan would have a stable, generous and protected beneﬁt that depends on their own payroll contributions, set payments for taxpayers and the plans’ investment performance rather than on Frankfort’s politicians. Those protecting the status quo might have a stronger position had beneﬁts historically been limited to those awarded in advance and properly pre-funded with payroll contributions made by teachers and their employers. All parties ought to at least agree that the commonwealth cannot continue to place new teachers in the current declining system.

Summer is ripe with signs for estate sales, garage sales, and weekend ﬂea market explorations. It’s also a great time to ﬁnd a great deal, discover an antique or ﬁnd the perfect decorative item that will look fabulous in your house. You’re not the only one looking for a steal, con artists are too. Lock it up Having a yard sale isn’t necessarily a dangerous activity, however, it doesn’t hurt to take a few basic precautions. Lock all the doors leading to your home including the door from the garage to the interior even you plan to go in and out frequently. Your attention will be needed elsewhere at some point during the sale when tending to visitors. Politely refuse the use of your restroom as this provides an opportunity for future theft. Just prior to the sale, keep everything locked up. Yard sale shoppers tend to check out items before the sale begins to map out what areas to shop ﬁrst if there are speciﬁc items they’re looking for. Be buyer aware There is safety in numbers and often many cons will travel in groups sifting
through the displayed items. One will be the designation distractor while another will ask about another item or simply engage you in conversation. Treat your garage sale like you would a retailer. Enlist a friend or family member to help you during the time of the sale to keep an eye out for people swapping tags, hiding items or distracting while the rest of the posse riﬂes through items. Bigger ticket items, like jewelry and electronics, should be kept close and don’t hand it over until the correct cash is handed over. Cash only, please Stay sharp when it comes to settling for the purchases. Watch for the high bill switch where the buyer ﬂashes a $20 but tries to pay with a $10 claiming you shortchanged them. Or, look for counterfeit high dollar bills. Check out the Secret Service website for tips on what to look for. Looks suspicious? say something! Keep a fully charged cell phone with you at all time and if something doesn’t seem right or you’re approached by someone who’s not being very cooperative, don’t hesitate to contact your local law enforcement.

WHAT ARE NORTHERN KENTUCKY’S TOP
FOOTBALL RIVALRIES? James Weber Cincinnati Enquirer | USA TODAY NETWORK
Rivalries are special in any sport. High school football is a bountiful place to grow a special rivalry since the teams are only guaranteed to play once a year. In Northern Kentucky football, when only a small percentage of regular-season games impact the playoﬀ seeding, a rivalry can spice up an ordinary week. Here is a look at some of Northern Kentucky's top battles
Bellevue vs. Dayton The river rivals have played more games against each other than any other pair in Kentucky (141), with Bellevue leading 95-43-3. Since 2015, the teams have played two games a year, one in each of their historic stadiums, Bellevue’s Gilligan Stadium and Dayton’s Davis Field. The second one counts in district seeding and for the Battle for the Paddle traveling trophy. Since Dayton won two in a row from 2006-7, Bellevue has won 13 of the past 14, but three of the last four have ﬁnished within a one-score margin, with Dayton winning one. Last 10 years: 2008 – Bellevue 33-2, 2009 – Bellevue 56-7, 2010 – Bellevue 46-0, 2011 – Bellevue 17-6, 2012 – Bellevue 58-8, 2013 – Bellevue 64-6, 2014 – Bellevue 61-0, 2015 – Bellevue 42-0 and Bellevue 31-0, 2016 – Dayton 14-13 and Bellevue 7-0, 2017 – Bellevue 47-27 and Bellevue 42-40 (OT). 2018: Aug. 24 in Dayton, Oct. 12 in Bellevue.
Covington Catholic vs. Highlands There’s a lot of history in this matchup. Thirty combined state championships. College stars aplenty. Their 1997 playoﬀ meeting, the “Mud Bowl” that CovCath won in double-overtime, remains one of the most memorable games in Northern Kentucky lore. Highlands leads the all-time series 48-19, and recent history has been topsy-turvy with the teams having runs of dominance. Highlands won 15 in a row from 2007-15, with many of those being lopsided, then Cov-
AJ Mayer and Covington Catholic ended a 13-game losing streak to rival Highlands with a 63-26 victory in 2016. The two teams play at Highlands on Oct. 12.
Cath has turned the tables in 2016-17, winning a pair of routs. Highlands hopes to be an improved team this season while CovCath reloads from its dominant 2017 state championship year. Last 10 years: 2008 – Highlands 61-0; 2009 – Highlands 36-7; 2010 – Highlands 27-20; 2011 – Highlands 4237, Highlands 49-14; 2012 – Highlands 35-21, Highlands 28-13; 2013 – Highlands 42-6, Highlands 28-13; 2014 – Highlands 42-7, Highlands 37-34; 2015 – Highlands 1410, Highlands 44-22; 2016 – CovCath 63-26; 2017 – CovCath 52-0. 2018: Oct. 12 at Highlands See RIVALRIES, Page 2B

UC Bearcats, NKU Norse to play men’s basketball series over next seven years Tom Groeschen Cincinnati Enquirer USA TODAY NETWORK
The University of Cincinnati men’s basketball team will start a four-game series next season with the Bearcats’ one-year hosts from 2017-18, the Northern Kentucky University Norse. Neither school has issued a press release about the series, but UC athletic director Mike Bohn said that the two schools will be playing a four-game home-and-home series. There will be two games at each school, beginning in the 2018-19 season at UC. The games will be played over the next seven years, Bohn said, with dates to be announced. “We agreed to a four-game series as part of our agreement to play on their campus last season,” Bohn said via text. UC played its 2017-18 home games at NKU’s BB&T Arena, with the Bearcats’ Fifth Third Arena undergoing an $87 million renovation. UC will return to its campus home for the 2018-19 season, with NKU among the opponents. UC paid about $650,000 to play at NKU last season. The agreement stated that the two schools would play two home-and-home series sometime in the years after Fifth Third is renovated. NKU made 10 NCAA Division II Tournament appearances – including national runner-up ﬁnishes in 1996 and 1997 – before transitioning to Division I six years ago. The Norse gained national attention with a 2017 Division I NCAA Tournament appearance, followed by an NIT bid in 2018. “We recognize the growth of their athletic enterprise as a ﬁt into the way (UC coach) Mick (Cronin) has consistently managed our RPI and nationally recognized program,” Bohn said. UC has made eight consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances under Cronin, who next season will enter his 13th year as Bearcats head coach.UC is 7-0 all-time against NKU in the regular season. The two schools also have met in preseason exhibitions, but the Bearcats media guide shows that the two programs have not played in the regular season since a 75-63 UC win on Nov. 27, 1988 at Cincinnati Gardens.

Parents: How to spot, treat heat-related illness very common among athletes. One of the causes is heavy sweating during intense exercise and muscle pain. This is where the cooler full of Gatorade comes in. One of the easiest ways to defend cramping is to drink plenty of ﬂuids, although an electrolyte-ﬁlled sports drink is better than a bottle of cold water. UC Health explains: “Although water is good, water alone can get a dehydrated person into trouble. The blood carries salt and too much water can dilute that salt. When a person’s sodium levels drop too much, it can cause seizures.” Once the cramps subside, an athlete can resume physical activity.

We are moving into the dog days of summer in the Queen City. July is Cincinnati’s hottest month at an average temperature of 77 degrees. That number often climbs, though. Cincinnati is set to have multiple 90-degree days this month and it gets worse with the added humidity. This introduces an annual problem for athletes when it comes to handling the heat. For those Little League/knothole baseball and softball players playing on summer teams, the diamond can get toasty. Not to mention a youth baseball ﬁeld’s dugout is usually a chain link fence guarding a wooden bench that offers little shade and the players are donned in pants, jerseys and thick socks. July also summons athletes back to the gridiron and summer workouts for other fall sports. Football players are constantly clashing between the battle lines while draped head to toe in padded gear. There are a handful of heat-related illnesses to look out for. The key is to know what you’re looking for, especially with younger athletes. According to UC Health, children can overheat four times faster than adults because the body has not yet developed a cooling process that involves the evaporation of sweat. Here are a few common illnesses linked to heat and how to avoid and combat them from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
Heat stroke/ Heat exhaustion

ness, a headache or nausea or if they pass out, they could have a case of heat exhaustion. There are a few big diﬀerences, though. For a heat stroke, a person’s skin would be hot and dry and their pulse is fast. In the case of heat exhaustion, the skin becomes clammy and cold and the pulse slows down. UC Health dubs heat stroke as the most dangerous heat-related illness and one should seek medical attention right away.
athletes, sunburn can occur easily over the course of a two-hour day game. Baseball and softball players, standing for long periods of time, can get sunburn on their arms and the back of the neck very easily. Sunburn is preventable in most cases, though. Dr. Cory Dietz of the UCHealth Falcon Medical Center recommends the use of at least SPF (sun protection factor) 30 sunscreen. CDC recommends cool clothes and moisturizing lotion on sunburned areas and do not break blisters that rise from it.
Like sunburn and cramping, a heat rash is an easily-treatable heat-related illness. According to CDC, one should look for “red clusters of small blusters that look like pimples on the skin (usually on the neck, chest, groin or in elbow creases).” Treatment includes keeping the infected area dry and using baby powder to soothe the rash. Summer is all about having fun in the sun, but it’s also about being prepared. Playing three or four games in the scorching sun should mean a tent set up adjacent to a dugout with coolers ﬁlled with drinks, wet cloths and quick snacks. Freezing wet wash clothes in a baggie can help keep them extra cold in the cooler. Most football coaches are good about mixing in full-pad and half-pad practices and giving their players regular water breaks and ice baths to cool oﬀ.

Some keys for handling both a heat stroke and heat exhaustion are to move the person to a cooler place and to use wet cloths. A few symptoms are similar, too. If athletes are suﬀering from dizzi-

COVINGTON – Axes started ﬂying inside a new Covington bar this summer. The Cincinnati area’s ﬁrst Flying Axes sports bar is open inside a historic Covington ﬁrehouse at 100 W. Sixth St. Ax-throwing bars have become a thing spreading across the country. The ax-throwing trend has resulted in bars opening in cities across the U.S. including New York City and Louisville.

Rivalries Continued from Page 1B
Ryle vs. Simon Kenton Deﬁnitely some recent bias in this choice. The Raiders have longstanding rivalries with their Boone County neighbors – Conner, Cooper and Boone County – with the added bonus of the players growing up in the peewee leagues together. But it’s hard to ignore how strong both the Raiders and Pioneers have been in recent years and how competitive they have been with each other. Ryle is 71-48 since 2008 and Simon 100-31. Both teams have played in a state ﬁnal. Both were undefeated in 2016 when they met late in the season, and SK was undefeated last year when Ryle won 56-38 behind 449 rushing yards from Jake Chisholm. Starting in 2019, they will be district mates again.

Team-building exercises are a specialty of Flying Axes, said Katie Meyer, president of nonproﬁt Renaissance Covington. Flying Axes will be a unique attraction, Meyer said. “I think people will take the extra time to have an experience like that,”
she said. Flying Axes has introduced electronic scoreboards to the sport controlled by a mobile app, according to a news release. “We’re a Kentucky company leading an international industry in innovation,” said Dave Durand, CEO of Flying Axes. “We’re proud of that.” The 1898 ﬁrehouse Flying Axes is moving into was Covington’s main ﬁre station until 1975. Entrepreneur Mick Noll turned the ﬁrehouse into a German restaurant in 1976. Noll sold the ﬁrehouse in 1985 when it became Tickets Sports Cafe. In 2013, Tickets closed. The sports bar was reopened the same year by longtime Tickets employee Jim Brautigan as the Firehouse on West Sixth. “We’re excited to see that building come back to life,” Meyer said. “It’s been an icon in the neighborhood for a long time.”

This local company helps forensic labs ID street drugs Terry DeMio Cincinnati Enquirer USA TODAY NETWORK
Tyler Harris, like most Northern Kentucky residents, has felt the impact of the relentless heroin epidemic on his community. He has also watched his business grow because of it. It’s an unusual position to be in, Harris acknowledged. But he rests assured that his business is one that can help police nab drug dealers and prosecutors put them behind bars. ASAP Analytical, a family business that operates from an unassuming building on an alley named Neave Street in Covington, sells equipment that helps analysts in forensic labs ﬁgure out the content of powder and pills and bricks of suspected drugs that cops seize. “Business has been good for us the last ﬁve years,” said Harris, owner and general manager. “I’m glad to be able to help law enforcement.” The machine that ASAP Analytical sells uses infrared light to help detect the individual chemicals or substances that are in a drug mixture. The surge on the streets of the synthetic opiate fentanyl, in particular, tells Harris that equipment such as ASAP’s will continue to grow in demand for a while. Some of the company’s products have gone to U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration forensic labs and others to county crime labs, though none in Greater Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky so far, Harris said. “We recently quoted two systems, one to the DEA laboratory in Chicago and one to the laboratory in Miami, to help with increased demand due to opioids,” Harris said. “The same is true for Health Canada. They contacted us earlier this month and requested a quote for four new ... units with delivery over the next three years.” Shawn O’Connor, development engi-
neer for the business, thinks the overdose death count from highly potent fentanyl and its derivatives has spurred the greater demand for the drug-testing equipment. The thing with fentanyl is, rogue chemists can alter its makeup just slightly and change the drug to create new, sometimes even more powerful, and hard-toidentify fentanyl types. “You can no longer just say, ‘We could get that.’ It’s, ‘We need to get that,’ “ O’Connor explained. The ASAP sales staﬀ frequently hears from forensic labs that they’re awaiting grants to cover the costs of the instruments and some could take a couple of years to get. The company’s device sells for $75,000 to $85,000, Harris said, with the price range taking into account buyers’ options, training and installation costs. The small business has sold to more than 50 forensic labs in countries all over the world, including Australia, Canada and Germany, as well as the U.S. Michael Gilbert, assistant director of the Pinellas County, Florida, Forensic Lab, has a machine that ASAP upgraded. “We are also looking to add another,” he said. The Petersburg-area lab sees the usual array of drugs, including “a lot of fentanyl,” and its derivatives. The device that ASAP Analytical sells can identify the tiniest diﬀerence in these fentanyl types – and that’s important information for court cases. But ASAP Analytical isn’t bound to the opioid crisis to make a proﬁt. Its equipment can identify the makeup of a lot of things, so it’s commonly used in petrochemical, food and ﬂavorings and other consumer markets, Harris said. ASAP has been around since his dad, Don Harris, founded it in 1998 in Burlington. He changed its location a couple of times and landed in Covington in 2005. Tyler Harris took over in 2006. He’s a lifelong Northern Kentucky resident, living now with his wife, Stephanie

and their three daughters, 11, 9 and 6, in Fort Mitchell. A health poll in 2016 showed that 1 in 3 Northern Kentucky residents knew someone who’d used heroin, and Harris has his own links to people who’ve been addicted and died. It’s that human toll that resonates more with Harris than growth in the drug-
analysis segment of his business, he said. “Over the last couple of years, two people I knew and played sports with in high school overdosed and passed away. Over time I had lost touch with both of them, but their deaths really aﬀected me in a strange way,” he said. “And really opened my eyes to the scale of this epidemic.”

Why Haven’t Senior Homeowners Been Told These Facts?
Keep reading if you own a home in the U.S. and were born before 1955.
Cajun/Creole Band at Music@BCM, Thursday, July 19 PROVIDED/SHAREN KARDON, COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER
It’s a well-known fact that for many senior citizens in the U.S. their home is their single biggest asset, often accounting for more than 50% of their total net worth. Yet, according to new statistics from the mortgage industry, senior homeowners in the U.S. are now sitting on more than 6.1 trillion dollars of unused home equity.1 With people now living longer than ever before and home prices back up again, ignoring this “hidden wealth” may prove to be short sighted. All things considered, it’s not surprising that more than a million homeowners have already used a government-insured Home Equity Conversion Mortgage or “HECM” loan to turn their home equity into extra cash for retirement. However, today, there are still millions of eligible homeowners who could benefit from this FHA-insured loan but may simply not be aware of this “retirement secret.” Some homeowners think HECM loans sound “too good to be true.” After all, you get the cash you need out of your home but you have no more monthly mortgage payments.
NO MONTHLY MORTGAGE PAYMENTS?2 EXTRA CASH? It’s a fact: no monthly mortgage payments are required with a government-insured HECM loan;2 however the homeowners are still responsible for paying for the maintenance of their home, property taxes, homeowner’s insurance and, if required, their HOA fees. Another fact many are not aware of is that HECM reverse mortgages first took hold when President Reagan signed the FHA Reverse Mortgage Bill into law 29 years ago in order to help senior citizens remain in their homes. Today, HECM loans are simply an effective way for homeowners 62 and older to get the extra cash they need to enjoy retirement. Although today’s HECM loans have been improved to provide even greater financial protection for homeowners, there are still many misconceptions. For example, a lot of people mistakenly believe the home must be paid off in full in order to qualify for a HECM loan, which is not the case. In fact, one key advantage of a HECM is that the proceeds will first be used to pay off any existing liens on the property, which frees up cash flow, a
Hot Magnolias bring the Bayou to NKY FACT: In 1988, President Reagan signed an FHA bill that put HECM loans into law. huge blessing for seniors living on a fixed income. Unfortunately, many senior homeowners who might be better off with HECM loan don’t even bother to get more information because of rumors they’ve heard. That’s a shame because HECM loans are helping many senior homeowners live a better life. In fact, a recent survey by American Advisors Group (AAG), the nation’s number one HECM lender, found that over 90% of their clients are satisfied with their loans. While these special loans are not for everyone, they can be a real lifesaver for senior homeowners. The cash from a HECM loan can be used for any purpose. Many people use the money to save on interest charges by paying off credit cards or other highinterest loans. Other common uses include making home improvements, paying off medical bills or helping other family members. Some people simply need the extra cash for everyday expenses while others are now using it as a “safety net” for financial emergencies. If you’re a homeowner age 62 or older, you owe it to yourself to learn more so that you can make an informed decision. Homeowners who are interested in learning more can request a free 2018 HECM loan Information Kit and free Educational DVD by calling American Advisors Group tollfree at 1-800-841-8091. At no cost or obligation, the professionals at AAG can help you find out if you qualify and also answer common questions such as: 1. What’s the government’s role? 2. How much money might I get? 3. Who owns the home after I take out a HECM loan? You may be pleasantly surprised by what you discover when you call AAG for more information today.
Source: http://reversemortgagedaily.com/2016/06/21/seniors-home-equity-grows-to-6-trillion-reverse-mortgageopportunity. 2If you qualify and your loan is approved, a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) must pay off any existing mortgage(s). With a HECM loan, no monthly mortgage payment is required. A HECM increases the principal mortgage loan amount and decreases home equity (it is a negative amortization loan). AAG works with other lenders and financial institutions that offer HECMs. To process your request for a loan, AAG may forward your contact information to such lenders for your consideration of HECM programs that they offer. When the loan is due and payable, some or all of the equity in the property no longer belongs to borrowers, who may need to sell the home or otherwise repay the loan with interest from other proceeds. AAG charges an origination fee, mortgage insurance premium, closing costs and servicing fees (added to the balance of the loan). The balance of the loan grows over time and AAG charges interest on the balance. Interest is not tax-deductible until the loan is partially or fully repaid. Borrowers are responsible for paying property taxes and homeowner’s insurance (which may be substantial). We do not establish an escrow account for disbursements of these payments. A set-aside account can be set up to pay taxes and insurance and may be required in some cases. Borrowers must occupy home as their primary residence and pay for ongoing maintenance; otherwise the loan becomes due and payable. The loan also becomes due and payable when the last borrower, or eligible non-borrowing surviving spouse, dies, sells the home, permanently moves out, defaults on taxes or insurance payments, or does not otherwise comply with the loan terms.

Kroger’s $18M investment has digital focus Melissa Reinert Cincinnati Enquirer USA TODAY NETWORK
FLORENCE – Grocery shopping is being transformed by the digital age and Kroger is attempting to stay on the forefront of this new wave in Northern Kentucky. Just nine months after opening, a Kroger distribution center in Florence will add 250 full-time associates. The company will invest about $18 million at the facility to support its e-commerce and digital services. Florence Mayor Diane Whalen said the move makes “perfect sense.” “This move is a reﬂection of the times,” she said. “Kroger recognizes what the competition is doing and they want to stay on the forefront. They realize how important it is to get their message out on their digital services and that it’s impor-
tant to get good people to work for them. Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati is Kroger’s home. They want top-quality services for their customers here.” Whalen said she doesn’t use Kroger’s digital shopping options herself, but she’s assisted several friends who “really enjoy the services.” The number of stores oﬀering ClickList, Kroger’s online grocery ordering service, has risen in Northern Kentucky. Customers shop online for products then pick them up at the store, with employees loading bags into their cars. “I still like going into the store and picking out my own items,” the mayor said with a laugh. “But, (digital grocery shopping) is something I’m sure I’ll be trying in the future.” Kroger will purchase new equipment and upgrade technology at its 674,000square-foot facility on Mount Zion Road in Florence, according to a press release

from the governor’s oﬃce. The facility opened in October 2017 as a replenishment center to service the company’s direct-to-store distribution centers across the eastern half of the U.S. The facility currently employs about 80 associates. “The facility has been a great success for the company since it opened, and we are excited to expand and continue our growth with the support of Boone County and the state,” said Frank Bruni, Kroger’s vice president of supply chain and logistics. The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority in June preliminarily approved the company for tax incentives up to $1 million. Kroger maintains 114 stores and seven jewelry stores in Kentucky, employing 21,225 people. Kentucky is also home to four manufacturing and distribution facilities, as well as a regional headquarters in Louisville. Sen. John Schickel, of Union, said Northern Kentucky is on an economic development roll and Kroger’s investment builds on that success. “We are grateful to Kroger for this huge investment of nearly $18 million into our local economy in Boone County,” Schickel said. “Employment is on the rise in Northern Kentucky, and these 250 new jobs will keep our economic momentum going.” Boone County Judge-executive Gary
Moore applauded Kroger’s commitment to innovation, technology and job growth. “The Mount Zion facility will be a hub for Kroger’s e-commerce and digital innovations and we are very pleased that jobs created by this expansion will contribute to not only the livelihood of our region, but also the redeﬁnition of the grocery industry,” Moore said. Candidates interested in the new positions can apply at https://jobs.kroger.com. Development Finance Authority (KEDFA) in June preliminarily approved the company for tax incentives up to $1 million through the Kentucky Business Investment program. The performancebased incentive allows a company to keep a portion of its investment over the agreement term through corporate income tax credits and wage assessments by meeting job and investment targets. In addition, Kroger can receive resources from the Kentucky Skills Network. Through the Kentucky Skills Network, companies can receive no-cost recruitment and job placement services, reduced-cost customized training and job training incentives. In the ﬁscal year 2017, the Kentucky Skills Network provided training for more than 120,000 Kentuckians and 5,700 companies from a variety of industry sectors.
