A PEEK INTO THE PAST:
KENTON LIBRARY BOASTS 100K ONLINE PHOTOS Melissa Reinert firstname.lastname@example.org
f a picture is worth 1,000 words, then Kenton County Public Library has 100 million stories to share. The library’s online historic photo album, Faces and Places, recently added the 100,000th photo to its database. The photo, from the former Kentucky Post, is dated March 14, 1975, and features a man named Bill Penick. This photo is just one of thousands preserved digitally for all to see, and share, online via the Faces and Places website, www.kentonlibrary. org/facesandplaces. “People love looking at old photos; they connect us to the past,” said library Executive Director Dave Schroeder. “It’s nostalgia. Whether it’s a memory of the community or family member. Old photos allow you see how things used to be. They also allow you to reconnect with loved ones or an old teacher or doctor, anyone who made a difference in your life.” Schroeder was in charge of Faces and Places when it first began in March 2006. At that time the library had a collection of 20,000 photos. Staff was looking for a way to help patrons get more use out of the photos, so they decided to create an online database. “We slowly scanned in what we had and put them online,” he said. “It was such a success it just snowballed from there.” When the Kentucky Post closed in 2008, it donated its photo archive to the library. Soon people from the community started sharing their photos or collections as well. Now with 100,000 photos online and about 20,000 left to See PHOTOS, Page 2A

COVINGTON - The decision of new Covington Mayor Joe Meyer to pay for his own assistant with his own money has some legal experts scratching their heads. “The fact the mayor is paying this person out-of-pocket is fairly unique,” said Chris Johnson, attorney with the Kentucky League of Cities, the major advocacy organization representing all cities in Kentucky. “Based upon what I’ve seen, it’s a different situation than you normally see. Normally there’s a volunteer situation where someone assists at city hall.” In one of his first acts as mayor, Meyer hired with his own money the former director of the MainMeyer Strasse Village Association, Annie Venerable. The city commission this month voted 4-1 to give him that authority. Many mayors have assistants. Some have volunteers. But Johnson and Covington City Solicitor Frank Warnock are not aware of a mayor paying for his own volunteer. This raises questions of the city’s liability as well as giving a private employee access to public property, such as computers, desks or offices. State law doesn’t address it. There’s no precedent, Warnock and Johnson said. “We’ve not researched it to the nth degree,” Warnock said. “There’s some discussion about it, internally.” So why does Meyer want to pay out of his own pocket for an assistant? He doesn’t want to share assistants with City Manager Larry Klein. It’s one of the first blows struck in the feud between Klein and Meyer since Meyer took office Jan. 1. Meyer has made it clear he wants a new city manager. Meyer Klein wants the mayor and city commission to have more control over city government. Meyer said there’s “zero trust” between him and the city manager. “I’m not going to put an administrative assistant into the middle of the situation between the city manager and myself,” Meyer said. “That’s not fair to her.” Meyer ran on a platform promising change. He described Klein’s refusal to resign as an affront to the will of the voters. It’s no different than when a new governor takes over and appoints a new chief of staff, See POSITION, Page 2A

New NKY hotel tax nearing vote Chris Mayhew email@example.com
COVINGTON – A proposed new per-night hotel room tax for visitors to Northern Kentucky is nearly ready for county elected officials to see. Elected officials of Boone, Campbell and Kenton fiscal courts could see a hotel tax ordinance as soon as the end of January. Northern Kentucky Convention and Visitors Bureau is seeking a new tax people staying in hotels will see added to their nightly hotel room bill. Hotel room bills will be taxed at 1 percent. Tax money raised will be put into a new capital improvement fund for a hoped-for expansion of
the region’s convention center in Covington. About $1.2 million annually will be raised by the tax. Ordinances created by NKCVB initially unveiled in Campbell and Kenton counties in December were removed to modify wording, NKCVB President Eric Summe said. “None of the intent is changing,” Summe said. A new hotel tax ordinance should be ready for each Fiscal Court to see as early as the end of January, Summe said. “This whole concept was basically designed to replicate what Lexington did in the last legislative session,” he said. Lexington put in $10 million toward its new convention center expan-
sion plan. Lexington’s expansion will create a 785,000-square-foot convention center nearly triple Northern Kentucky Convention Center’s current capacity, he said. The region’s convention center is losing large conventions to other cities, Summe said. For instance, the Association of Manufacturing Excellence convention outgrew Northern Kentucky’s convention center in 2015. Northern Kentucky lost 4,500 hotel room nights by losing the convention an about $216,000 in tax revenues, Summe said. Convention center plans in Lexington and Louisville’s convention center are outpacing what
Northern Kentucky offers, Summe said. Summe said all three county judge-executives in Northern Kentucky are supporting the tax. All four Campbell County Fiscal Court commissioners said they favor 1 percent hotel room tax. Tea Party favorite Commissioner Charlie Coleman of Alexandria said he supports a room tax as an economic investment. Coleman said. “If we can expand the convention center maybe we can get the American Legion (convention) instead of Cincinnati.” The American Legion’s national convention for 2016 was in Cincinnati. “The convention center is an important asset in

It has been almost a year since the beloved Rabbit Hash General Store was destroyed by fire, but driving through Rabbit Hash today, you’d hardly know it. Construction has been going strong on the General Store since the fall, when plans were approved. Now the walls are up and the Coca-Cola sign is painted. The Rabbit Hash Historical Society wants to keep the General Store on the National Register of Historic Places. The drawings and plans had to be approved by national, state and local historical societies before the plans could move forward. Strict restrictions from the U.S. Department of the Interior state that wood from the same time period must be used in restoration of the General Store. Now construction moves inside where workers must lay 3-inch

president of the Rabbit Hash Historical Society in a statement. “We would really like it to be on Feb. 13, 2017. One year to the day it burned (just for the non-believers). But that may be pushing it. Early spring, however, is certainly not out of the question.”
Klein has maintained it was gathering public information available to anyone. The attorney general has not ruled. “To me, it’s obvious he does not have the best interest in mind for the city of Covington as he chooses to force the hand of the commission to deal with him,” Meyer said. “This is sad.” Klein said he didn’t campaign against Meyer and he doesn’t know why Meyer wants him out. Klein has worked for the city since 2008, first as assistant city manager then for the past seven years as city manager. He’s worked under four previous mayors. “I think I do my job,” Klein said. “I think I’m effective. I think you can look around town and see progress. I’m part of the team that made this progress happen. The city is more fiscally solvent today. There’s a lot of good things. Why he wants me to resign, I have no idea.”

Meyer said. “Mr. Klein said he likes his job and that’s why he wants to stay,” Meyer said. “I’m sure (former Kentucky governor) Steve Beshear’s chief of staff liked his job. (Gov.) Matt Bevin is not expected to keep him. That’s pretty straightforward.” Meyer said he doesn’t have trust in Klein because Klein campaigned against him. Klein said he did not. The Local 38 firefighters union in Covington filed a complaint with the attorney general in October weeks ahead of the election. The union filed the complaint after Klein compiled city information for former Mayor Sherry Carran and incumbent commissioners ahead of a political forum organized by Local 38. The union said this was unlawful use of city resources.

Remke Markets Makes Online Grocery Shopping Convenient Pat Iasillo Over the past decade our world has become more accustomed to shopping online for the products we want. It makes sense not to waste time and effort shopping if we can just as easily click a few buttons to accomplish the same thing. However, there has been some reluctance when it comes to products we like to feel and touch before we buy. We don’t mind purchasing a book online or the latest toy, but some of us like to try on a pair a shoes before we buy them or like to feel the material on an article of clothing. The same thing is even more true when it comes to shopping for food. We want to be
in control when we pick our apples or our lettuce, or a beef roast. Therefore, shopping online for our groceries has met with some resistance. It can also be painful to sort through over 30,000 products to find what we want. That is all changing. Remke Markets has carefully thought through these issues before we offered an online solution to our customers. After all, we have been in business for almost 120 years, partly because we keep the wants and needs of our customers at the top of the list on our approach to the grocery business. That is why we offer something a little different; a personal shopper. Our personal shoppers
are carefully chosen to be as picky as our pickiest customers when it comes to choosing what to put in the basket. They also are people who are anxious to learn just what you like, how you like it, and if they don’t know, they will call you and ask before they choose. We feel confident you will be pleased that your shopper will far exceed your expectations. Couple a personal shopper with the ease of the Remke Mobile Markets website and you have a means of shopping for your groceries that is second to none. With your registration of your Remke Rewards card on our website, you now have access to the top 100 items you normally purchase at your fingertips. You may also like to shop our weekly ad. Now all you need do is click on an item when viewing our ad and presto, it
is on your shopping list. In addition, we have made it simple to shop for anything in our store by using our search bar, or by searching through every department and category. We even have an app available for download on your Apple or Android mobile device, and you can use it to scan the UPC barcodes of the items in your house to add them directly to your list.

1,400 graduate at NKU winter commencement More than 1,400 students were honored Dec. 17 at Northern Kentucky University’s 44th Commencement exercises at BB&T Arena. Two ceremonies were held. Graduates of the College of Education and Human Services, the College of Health Professions, and the College of Informatics were honored at 10 a.m. Graduates of the College of Arts and Sciences and the Haile/US Bank College of Business were honored at 3 p.m. The Commencement address was delivered by Dr. Missy Jones, professor of Special Education and recipient of NKU’s Frank Sinton Milburn Outstanding Professor Award. Jones is a teacher, researcher, and founder of NKU’s Supported Higher Education Project (SHEP), which promotes peer mentoring partnerships to expand access for students with intellectual disabilities. Jones sent the 1,412 graduates out into the world with one final assignment: Celebrate the big moments – but savor the small ones, and use them to change the world one step at a time. “Reflect on ways you have been supported during your life and your time at NKU, and how people helped you along the way. Then make a commitment to pay it forward, spreading kindness to others who may be struggling with their own challenges and barriers,” she said. “One by one, action by action, paying it forward, I truly believe we can

change the world. Go forth and do good things.” Students and their families also heard remarks from NKU President Geoffrey S. Mearns, as well as from two of their peers: Jacob Meece in the morning, and Kylie Stigar-Burke in the afternoon. Meece, who has a hearing disability, delivered his remarks in American Sign Language with the assistance of a voice interpreter. A 2012 graduate of the Kentucky School for the Deaf and valedictorian of his class, Meece graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Electronic Media and Broadcasting and a minor in Media Informatics from NKU. He plans to work as a video producer. Stigar-Burke has traveled the world through NKU’s study away and study abroad programs, which inspired her to begin blogging. Her work has appeared in publications such as Thought Catalog, The Huffington Post, and Elite Daily. A graduate of Cincinnati’s Roger Bacon High School, Ms. StigarBurke graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in English from NKU. In all, 1,412 graduates were honored. They include students who completed degrees in August, as well as those who completed degrees in December. A posthumous degree was also awarded to Kirsten Smithson, who was pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science before she died in November 2015.
Museum aided so students can go on field trips The Patricia Kisker Foundation has awarded a $15,000 grant to Behringer-Crawford Museum for field trip scholarships for students in underserved areas during 2017. According to BCM Executive Director Laurie Risch, the grant will fund educational visits to the museum by classes of public and parochial school students from underserved area schools (those with 50 percent or more free lunch participation).
Activities will include integrated STEAM-focused educational programs, which combine music, dance, lecture, art, environmental and cultural perspective and historical context to pre-school, elementary, middle and high school students. Programs are aligned to the Kentucky and Ohio educational standards. A portion of the funds will be used for student transportation to and from the museum, Risch said.
“Our goal for this funding is to reach 2500 students, providing them a foundation in their cultural heritage,” Risch said. “We are extremely grateful to the Kisker Foundation for their shared vision for the well-being of our youth and for making this possible.” Schools interested participating in the program should contact BCM Education Director Kim Gehring-Cook at 859-491-4003.
St. Joseph’s penny war benefits Mary Rose Mission The Student Council at St. Joseph School in Crescent Springs has various service projects each year. Student Council has been a loyal supporter of Mary Rose Mission over the past several years, hosting out-of-uniform days and canned food drives. This year, however, they decided to try their hand at a “Penny War” in which the spirit of competition within the school led to a very generous donation to the Mary Rose Mission. In all, $750 was raised over the course of one week to provide “Hams for the Holidays” to the soup kitchen located in Florence. When discussing service projects for this year, St. Joseph teachers and Student Council moderators Amy Coomes and Amy Malone listed organizations in the area which have historically been supported by St. Joseph Church, School, or organiza-

tions within the church and school. Because many of the students have volunteered with the Mary Rose Mission, that organization seemed like a fantastic choice, especially for the eighth grade Confirmation candidates who serve as the leadership team for Student Council. Part of their confir-
mation activities involved exploring agencies in Northern Kentucky which are designed to help the homeless population. “The St. Joseph Student Council is grateful for this opportunity to help our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ,” Amelia Coomes, Student Council vice-president, said.

Arboretum supporters eye expansion would also boost the arboretum’s notability in a younger generation. The Boone County Arboretum now boasts 3,600 trees and shrubs. About 75 percent are labeled with extensive information on names and characteristics, but vandals often steal the metal plates. They are expensive to replace. Another one of the arboretum’s biggest challenges is its funding identity. The arboretum’s main operational budget is with Boone County Cooperative Extension. It is physically located within the Boone County Parks system on county-owned land. The county contributes to infrastructure upkeep of the property, as well as a small tools and equipment budget. “Unfortunately, funding for significant enhancements or improvements toward the arboretum must occur via its nonprofit entity, Friends of Boone County Arboretum,” Stone said.

UNION –Years ago, Carol Reis discovered a small dose of relaxation and recreation in the Arboretum at Central Park on Camp Ernst Road. The arboretum – now called the Boone County Arboretum – was in its infancy. It was starting to blossom after being dedicated on May 2, 1999. Reis, a Northern Kentucky native, would drive from her fast-paced Memphis job in fashion design to visit her aging mother, who lived in a nearby retirement facility. Through the years, Reis routinely walked in the park and fell in love with the growing number of trees and shrubs that began to flourish and take shape into a fledgling arboretum. “I just loved how wellkept the trails were. I loved walking among the trees, shrubs and flowers,” she said. In 2014, a few years after retiring and relocating back to Northern Kentucky, Reis joined the Friends of Boone County Arboretum to support what she believes to be one of the region’s “bestkept secrets” and “local treasures.” “I am always amazed at the number of local residents who don’t know about the Boone County Arboretum,” she said. “I think more people know about the arboretum outside the area than people who live nearby.” To tackle one of its biggest challenges – lack of local exposure – the Friends of Boone County Arboretum has launched an annual gift-giving appeal that will run through Valentine’s Day.
Growth depends on nonprofit Friends group Future growth and development depends on The Friends, he added. Membership of Friends of Boone County Arboretum is more than 200. “Many people think we have a lot of money to fund our projects,” Snyder added. “It takes a lot of money to maintain the arboretum. We are always seeking grants.” “From the combined budgets of Extension and county, it costs roughly $500,000 each year to provide the current basic needs of the arboretum,” Stone said. The Friends is eyeing nearby land to purchase for expansion. “This would be used for the development of an Education and Visitors Center, expansion of plant collections and garden areas, and to preserve headwaters of the much-impacted Gunpowder Creek watershed,” Stone said. The challenges the Friends face keep the group busy, but for Snyder it is worth the hard work. “This is an important place for children to run and play and learn and get dirty,” she said. “But it is a well-kept secret.” Anyone wishing to donate to the Annual Gift Giving Appeal, should visit the arboretum’s website at https:// bcarboretum.o rg/support/annualappeal.
Fund drive hopes to launch mobile arboretum lab “This first year, our goal is to raise $25,000 for an innovative mobile lab that will allow us to serve the environmental educational needs of schools on their campuses,” said Jean Snyder, president of Friends of Boone County Arboretum. “Because of funding cuts, educators can’t get their students to us on field trips. This would allow us to take the arboretum and education about the environment, and the importance of trees to Northern Kentucky schools,” said arboretum director Kris Stone. A staffed mobile unit

Bone broth, purple food trending for new year Broccoli cheddar soup like Panera It was a request I had to fill. “Do you have a recipe for cheddar broccoli soup like Panera?” I looked up a bunch of recipes and found a few that sounded promising. I tried out a couple and adapted only slightly to suit my taste. I used my chicken bone broth. Find a step-by-step photo primer on my abouteating.com site for both the bone broth and this recipe. 2 tablespoons butter 3/4 to 1 cup finely diced onion (not sweet or red) 4 tablespoons melted butter 4 tablespoons flour Dijon mustard – to taste, start with a little and go from there 2 cups half-and-half 2 cups low sodium, fat free, chicken broth Heaping 3 cups broccoli, chopped – I used frozen, thawed 1 nice carrot, cut into matchsticks, a heaping cup Nutmeg to taste – I grated a whole nutmeg and used a generous 1/4 teaspoon 8 ounces extra sharp or sharp grated cheddar plus extra for garnish Salt and pepper to taste
Cook onion in butter on medium until translucent. Set aside. Make a roux: Whisk melted butter and flour over low heat until bubbly and a bit golden, not brown. Whisk in mustard. Whisk in half-and-half and broth and cook to a simmer about 10 minutes. Add broccoli, carrots and onions. Cook over low heat about 20 minutes. Add nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste. Take off heat and stir in cheese until melted. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

The Indian spices elevate this to a new level. Thanks to Barbara D. for sharing. A good recipe to sub in black rice for white. 1/4 cup water 1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth 1 cup long grain rice or black rice 1 teaspoon curry powder 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon paprika 1-2 pinches ground cloves 1 small onion, coarsely chopped
Bring water and chicken broth to a boil. Combine rice, curry powder, garlic powder, cinnamon, paprika, and cloves in a bowl; stir to mix. Add spiced rice and onion to the boiling broth. Cover and cook until rice is tender, about 25 minutes.
Tip from Rita: Why this recipe is good for you Black rice is whole grain, and used to be called “forbidden rice” since it was eaten only by Emperiors and commoners were not allowed to eat it. Curry powder contains turmeric, a spice with anti-inflammatory qualities. Cinnamon helps lower blood sugar. Garlic is good for your heart. Cloves contain magnesium, calcium and iron, great for bone and overall health.

Fort Wright mayor sees prosperous 2017 2016 was another great year for the city of Fort Wright thanks to a strong team effort between you, our residents and businesses, our City Council, and our dedicated staff. I’d like to take a moment to update our residents and share the good news about our community. First, I am very happy to report that thanks to the vision, financial acumen and dedication of our team, the city is in a very strong financial position. We have no debt obligations, a five-year capital improvement plan that calls for paying cash for all capital expenditures over the next five years and a very strong cash reserve to help us weather any unforeseen circumstances that may occur. We are committed to maintaining this financial posture moving forward. Furthermore, last year’s financial audit continued a long trend of clean audits and we expect a similar result for this year’s audit which will be presented at the Jan. 4 council meeting. Second, I’m very pleased to say that thanks to our improving financial condition, a substantial increase in property values, an increase in the number of businesses operating in the city, and frugal spending habits by our staff, we were able to reduce our property tax rate this year! Council approved a property tax rate of $2.70 per $1,000 of assessed value versus as rate of $2.76 per $1,000 of assessed value in 2015. As mayor, I can tell you that my goal and the goal of City Council is to keep our tax rates as low as possible while providing the highest quality services. I also want to ensure that residents are aware of our new financial transparency portal which was launched this year. You can access the portal any time at https://fortwrightky.open gov.com/transparency to see how your money is spent, all the way down to each individual check written. I encourage you to check it out, after all, it’s your money.
Another thing I want to mention is infrastructure. Like most communities in Northern Kentucky, our core infrastrucDavid Hatter ture is aging and needs regular COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST repair and reCOLUMNIST placement. Several years ago, council made a commitment to focus on infrastructure which includes a rolling five-year street plan. In 2016 we allocated more than $500,000 to the reconstruction of Beacon Hill, Wolfzorn Court and Oak Hill Court. As promised, we will continue to address infrastructure in 2017 as we continue to work through our street plan. We were very fortunate to receive an 80/20 grant from the federal government to redesign and rebuild Amsterdam Road between Redwood and General Drive. This project is estimated to cost a little over $3 million, but thanks to the grant funds, the city’s portion will only be about $625,000. The design work on this project will begin in the spring and it’s estimated that construction will be completed in the summer of 2020. Another issue of major importance to our community is public safety. After an extensive cost benefit analysis, a 13th police officer was added to our team in June and is now out serving our community. In May 2016, longtime City Administrative Officer Gary Huff decided it was time for a well-deserved retirement. Gary joined the city in 2008 and his insight, expertise and leadership were key to helping us correct our financial issues. We owe Gary a debt of gratitude and wish him a long, happy, and healthy retirement! Gary left huge shoes to fill, and thankfully after an exhaustive search, we found a fantastic

candidate to replace him. Ed Butler joined the city as our City Administrative Officer after a 25-year career with Kenton County. Ed served 21 years with the Kenton County Police Department before retiring as chief. He then returned to Kenton County and served four years as the executive director of the Emergency Communications Center. As we move into 2017 and beyond, economic development will continue to be an important part of our success because we derive a substantial portion of our revenues from businessrelated taxes and fees. We were blessed with many successes on this front in 2016 including: Dairy Queen on Highland Pike, Chickfil-A on Madison Pike, the Trek store on Dixie Highway, the Gateway Community College Automotive Center in the old Robke Chevrolet complex at Dudley and Madison, and the relocation of Von Lehman and Co. to the Wright’s Summit Complex at Kyles and Dixie. We anticipate more businesses choosing Fort Wright in 2017 including a Planet Fitness on View Point Drive and an Infiniti dealership which is planned to replace the Days Inn Hotel that was demolished on Dixie Highway. In closing, I would like to thank our City Council for their hard work, dedication, and support. It is an honor to serve with the six members of council, each of whom has a deep commitment to making the city of Fort Wright a great place to live, work and play. I would also like to thank our city staff for their hard work and dedication, we are blessed to have excellent people serving us in the city of Fort Wright. It is my honor and privilege to serve as your mayor here in my hometown. May God bless you and the city of Fort Wright and let me wish you and your family a very happy, safe, and prosperous 2017. David Hatter is mayor of Fort Wright.

Holmes quickly building Teams do well at swim classic an impressive season James Weber email@example.com
The Holmes High School girls basketball team has been having a grand time so far this season. Playing their first home game in three weeks Jan. 4, and their first game within two hours of home in that time, the defending Ninth Region Bulldogs had a chance to celebrate individual success. Before Wednesday’s tilt, Holmes’ 35th District opener against Notre Dame, the school gave senior Jaynice Stovall a game ball for her 1,000th career point, which she collected during the holidays. The cheerleaders posted two signs in the Holmes gymnasium, one featuring the digits “1,000” written roughly 500 times in a small space. Stovall, the only senior in Holmes’ main rotation, scored nine points to lead the Bulldogs to a 43-31 over the Pandas. Junior Tyrah McClendon-Englemon had a team-high 13 points and finished the game with 996 for her career, four shy of the millennium mark. The Bulldogs (13-2) won their sixth game in a row in the lowscoring contest. Holmes tied their lowest offensive output of the season but allowed its thirdlowest opposing outing. Holmes came in averaging more than 60 points per game but shot 30 percent from the field (15-of-52) and 12-of-24 from the free-throw line. Holmes head coach Tony Perkins will take the win but he is focused on leading the Bulldogs to a deeper run in the state tournament. Holmes reached the Elite Eight of last year’s Sweet 16. “I didn’t like our effort,” he said. “I didn’t like our intensity. I didn’t like the way we finished. We were 14-of-42 on two-pointers and about 35 of those were layups or close to it. We didn’t make shots. We’ve got to play pressure defense and tonight we didn’t pressure anybody.” After trailing 6-3 early, the Bulldogs scored nine straight points to lead 12-6, but the Pandas stayed within striking range throughout until the Bulldogs scored the last six points of the contest. Holmes’ defense kept the Pandas from getting a lot of open looks and the Bulldogs forced a fair share of turnovers but rarely were able to turn them into points. The Bulldogs hadn’t played at home in nearly three weeks (Dec. 16). Since then, they played in holiday tournaments at Bullitt East and Hazard, going 6-1 in those games. Their two losses have come to preseason 10th Region favorite Mason County and Seventh Region contender Louisville Male.

Feeling down? Might be seasonal affective disorder If you find yourself feeling down, depressed, moody or irritable during a particular time of the year, you may suffer from seasonal affective disorder. According Kathy R. to the Byrnes Mayo Clinic, EXTENDING KNOWLEDGE SAD is a type of depression linked to seasonal changes, and it begins and ends around the same time every year. For the majority of people, symptoms start in the fall or winter but quit with the coming of spring or early summer. SAD can cause feelings of depression for most of the day or nearly every day. Other symptoms include low energy, loss of interest in activities you used to enjoy, problems sleeping, loss of appetite, irritability, low energy and difficulty concentrating. A full list of symptoms is available on the Mayo Clinic’s website at http://bit.ly/SADfacts. Symptoms may start out mild but progress as the season wears on for some individuals. It is normal to feel down somedays, but if
you lack motivation and energy and feel blue for multiple days at a time, it is best to make an appointment to see your doctor. While there is no way to prevent SAD, a health care professional can diagnose the disorder and prescribe treatments to help you better manage the symptoms. Such treatments might include brightening up your environment, getting outside more and making physical activity a regular part of your day. If you think you might suffer from SAD, you are not alone. According to the National Institutes of Health, this disorder affects 6 percent of the U.S. population with an additional 14 percent suffering from a lesser form of seasonal mood changes. Females are four times more likely to suffer from the disorder than men. Your risks also increase the farther north you live, as you are farther away from the sun compared to those in the south. People can even develop the disorder after moving to more northern climates. Kathy R. Byrnes is Kenton County family and consumer sciences agent for University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service.
Change once and for all History is marked with periods when oppressed people rose up in the form of “Resistance Movements.” A resistance movement is where oppressed people finally decided to rise up and push back against their oppressors. The Israelites are probably the earliest known group of people to define the term resistance movement. Under the leadership of Moses, and after being in slavery for generations, they stood up to Pharaoh and the Egyptians and said, “Enough is enough.” What is so interesting about resistance movements is that to the outside world looking in, the oppressed person or group of people logically should have stood up long ago. Abusive relationships, food and chemical
addictions are all prime examples. Yet, unfortunately we find Julie House ourselves in FAITH NOTES an oxymoronic state of comfort when we stay where we are, even if leaving or changing is by far the healthier option. There is one common theme among oppressed people and their escape: a choice to no longer stand idly by and live under conditions that are less than what they know they deserve. Many of us today could use a resistance movement in our spiritual walk. It’s time to do more than just pray, “Lord, help me.” We have
to begin pushing back. God does not desire you or your loved one to remain in stronghold of addiction or depression or financial burden. So let’s stop accepting that, “this is just how it is.” Begin to push back, and expect God to move mightily on your behalf. Stop waiting and accepting your circumstances, and prove to God that you are ready to watch Him work. The best way to prove to God that you are ready, is to speak life into your struggling situations. Speak God’s truth where the devil tells you lies. Use the following verses to get you started: “Resist him steadfast in the faith.” (1 Peter 5:19) If the messages you hear in your mind are not good and pure and move you toward health and wellness, they are not of God.
Resist them, and ask God to send you His great and precious promises. “Remember, we ought always ought to pray and not lose heart.” (Luke 18:1) Never stop praying for your loved ones. While they are here on this earth, there is still hope. You will create an environment of resistance through steadfast and persevering prayer. Prayers that say, “God you started this thing in me, now I am ready for you to finish it.” Join me in 2017, declaring that this is the year of resistance, where things change once and for all! Julie House of Independence is founder of Equipped Ministries, a Christian-based health and wellness program.

These redesigns stress safety, styling Both the Hyundai Elantra and Kia Forte have raised their games for 2017 in regards to active safety systems, offering features such as collision warning with autonomous braking, lanekeeping assist and rear crosstraffic alert.
2017 Hyundai Elantra
2017 Kia Forte
Starting MSRP: $16,490 to $21,200
Starting MSRP: $17,150 to $22,350 l The 2017 Elantra is significantly reworked inside and out. It’s powered by a 147-horsepower, 2-liter four-cylinder with a sixspeed manual or automatic transmission, while the Elantra Eco version has a 128-hp, turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. All models feature new selectable driving modes that adjust engine, transmission and steering effort in Eco, Normal or Sports modes. l CITY: 26 to 32 mpg HIGHWAY: 36 to 40 mpg l The Elantra’s new design is high ighted by a large hexagonal grille flanked by optional high-intensity discharge headlights with available adaptive headlights that turn with the steering wheel. Aerodynamics are a key part of the redesign, including functional front air curtains to manage airflow and minimize resistance. The Elantra also features LED turn signal indicators, taillights and puddle lights. Five new colors are available for 2017. l The interior gets a wide instrument panel design and softtouch materials in key areas. There are two optional touchscreen multimedia systems over the base system: a 7-inch with a backup camera and an 8-inch with navigation. New available features for 2017 include a memory function for the power driver’s seat and side mirrors and a premium Infinity sound system. l Hyundai says reinforcements to the front chassis will improve performance in a collision. An available collision warning system autonomously brakes when needed. The Elantra also has available adaptive cruise control, pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.
New or notable
l The 2017 Forte sedan and Forte5 hatchback get styling updates and added technology. The Forte adds a new trim level, the sport-oriented S, between the LX and EX. The Forte5 is offered in three trim levels as well: LX, SX and EX. The new base engine is a 2-liter four-cylinder. Two other engine options carry over: a 173-horsepower, 2-liter fourcylinder for EX models and a 201-hp, turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder in the Forte5 SX. l CITY: 25 to 29 mpg HIGHWAY: 33 to 38 mpg
l Styling changes give the Forte and Forte5 the same nose; this change represents only a slight tweak for the sedan, but for the hatchback, it’s more drastic. The headlights feature updated LED detailing and available Dynamic Bending Light technology, which angles the headlights to illuminate corners at night. The taillights have also been redesigned on both models, with LED elements optional.
l The 2017 Forte and Forte5 get upgraded materials, new stitching and softer-touch surfaces (in this case, a leatherwrapped steering wheel and shifter on S models). The most exciting changes are on the technology front, with the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to Kia’s UVO3 multimedia system, which uses a 7-inch touch screen.
l Kia has expanded the Forte’s safety technology systems for 2017. A new set of driver aids is now available, including forward-collision warning with autonomous emergency braking, lane-change warning/assist, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert.
