Retiring Skyward president:
‘Anyone can make a difference’ Bill Scheyer discovered early to develop vision Melissa Reinert firstname.lastname@example.org

Highland Ventures district manager Matt Hill looks at a new release selection at Family Video in Elsmere.
Family Video keeps old concept fresh Melissa Reinert email@example.com
ELSMERE – On Friday and Saturday nights in the year 2017, Family Video is still hopping. “We’re packed,” said district manager Matt Hill. But they’re fully stocked with the latest movies and video games. “That’s one of the things that sets us apart from Redbox, there you’ll find about 800 discs, we have 800 discs in just one section here,” Hill said. “We have 10,000 new releases which is what really drives our business.” The business is Family Video, one of several companies operated by Highland Ventures. Family Video is the largest game rental chain in the U.S. They operate more than 750 Family Video stores in 19 states and Canada. Other ventures include Marco’s Pizza stores, Digital Doc, a digital device repair and sales store, and StayFit-24, state-of-theart fitness centers that offer workouts in a clean and safe environment. In 1978, Family Video was founded. Family Video has three stores located in Southwest Ohio and one in Northern Kentucky. Long-time patron Rob Jones frequents the Northern Kentucky location in Elsmere at least three times a week. “It’s the people, really,”
Jones said. “They’re why I keep coming. They’re friendly, very friendly. Coming here is a great way to meet people and they have a great selection of movies.” Hill agrees. In a world of online streaming, that human connection is often lost, he said. That’s not the case at Family Video.
“The entire family can come here and there’s something for everybody. It’s fun to see the kids and adults get excited ...” MATT HILL Family Video district manager
“We talk to our customers and build a relationship with them,” he said. “It’s a really fun job. You get to talk movies, you learn their favorites and you make suggestions to each other. People come back for that.” Family Video, according to Hill, is also offers a “family experience.” “The entire family can come here and there’s something for everybody. It’s fun to see the kids and adults get excited about what they’re going to bring home and share together.”

Location is also key. “We look for neighborhoods where there is a need and busy corners,” Hill said. The store at 4135 Dixie Highway in Elsmere is at one of those “perfect” spots. “We also work hard to be a part of the community,” Hill said. That goes beyond just talking shop, but taking action. That comes in the form of donating free rentals to local children who’ve done well in school, Hill said. In addition, for two weeks in the month of March, every Family Video takes up a collection for the Lymphoma Foundation. Together they typically raise $1 million every year. During the holidays, Family Video purchases turkeys and hams to give to local families in need. “We get so much support from our community that we want to give back as much as possible,” Hill said. It’s those personal touches that has kept Family Video around for 39 years. “Times certainly have changed and so has our competition,” Hill said. “But we get a sense that we are complimentary to online streaming businesses. “We offer a different selection. It’s nice to have so many options to choose from. We’re also always looking to the future and how we can adapt. We look forward to the future.”
COVINGTON – As a youngster, Bill Scheyer spent many a day pulling books off the shelves at the library. Having a vivid imagination, Scheyer would put himself “in the action.” Often, he’d discover himself standing in the crowd at the dedication of the Soldier’s National Cemetery in Gettysburg hanging on every word spoken by President Abraham Lincoln. Scroll through the years and there Scheyer was at Walt Disney Studios, next to the famed cartoon inventor himself, watching him squiggle Mickey Mouse on a page. “These things captured my attention,” Scheyer, now 67, said. “I was always interested in reading about people and history.” Walt Disney happens to be a favorite of the soon-to-be retired Northern Kentucky’s Skyward president. “Like all those I read about, I was interested in his background and how he came to be who he was,” Scheyer said. “The thing that fascinated me most about Walt Disney was his ability to create a slightly different reality. He had the ability to create a universe that was like our own, but a little bit brighter. He had vision. He could picture in his mind what he wanted people to see, feel and experience. And he accomplished it.” In Northern Kentucky, in the year 2017, perhaps the same could be said of Scheyer himself. “Bill has passion,” Jill Morenz, Skyward’s director of operations and vibrancy initiatives, said. “It’s a passion that makes people want to be involved. He’s a strategic thinker and has vision for what could be. He is an effective leader because he engages you in his vision.” That vision, Scheyer said, has always been a “brighter” Northern Kentucky. Scheyer, of Union, grew up in Covington. He enjoyed baseball and reading. Through his interest in books he found himself inspired at an early age to make a difference in his community. “I spent a lot of time at the Co-

vington branch of the Kenton County Public Library and read just about every biography in the young adults section,” he said. “I was interested in people’s story – what they had done with their lives. What that did was create a real desire in me to make a difference with my life. I knew I could do anything I wanted to do and I wanted to do something interesting, something positive.” Scheyer always had an interest in society and communities work and wondered what makes society tick. So, he studied sociology at Northern Kentucky University. For 20 years he worked in health care management at Bethesda and almost 20 years in government administration in Erlanger. Then he found his “perfect fit.” In 2009, Scheyer started serving as president of Vision 2015, now known as Skyward. Skyward is Northern Kentucky’s planning agency whose goal is to implement the five-year myNKY with a focus on early childhood education, people’s health, jobs and making the area more vibrant. On Feb. 9, the Skyward Board of Directors voted to reorganize under a new operating model designed to expand the impact and magnitude of projects in Northern Kentucky. The new organization will be called The Alliance. As a result of myNKY, Skyward has implemented LiveWell NKY, a key plan to provide Northern Kentucky with a common vision for a culture of good health. LiveWell lays the framework for active living, healthy eating and being tobacco-free by engaging communities, work sites, schools and faith-based orSee PRESIDENT, Page 2A

Mommy, baby yoga a unique way to bond
discussed. Emery said the class encourages moms and lit-
tle ones to bond with each other through playful interaction in the asanas.
One example is a mother lying on her back and having the baby placed on her belly. Moms can then bend forward and reach down to hug, tickle or hold their babies in a fun, lighthearted way. In addition, mothers can connect with other moms. Some are working to return to their normal size and find the camaraderie beneficial. In some cases, they find emotional support and encouragement from other mothers, according to Emery. Often, lifelong friendships are formed. The class is free and open to the public. Phoenix Wilson, 37, a registered yoga and tai chi instructor, teaches the course, unique in Camp-
in the state. In 2015, Pre-K Works was piloted by Erlanger-Elsmere Schools as a demonstration site by implementing an innovative model that includes multiple partners, shared resources, integrated delivery of child care and parent engagement, and collective measurement in the hopes of garnering statewide replication of the model. Last year the district’s kindergarten readiness score jumped from 37.4 percent to 45.5 percent. Scheyer said he is happy with his work at Skyward, but credits his staff and fellow teammates in the process for all its successes. It’s that kind of humbleness from Bill that inspires former Northern Kentucky University president Jim Votruba. Votruba, who now is president emeritus and professor of educational leadership at NKU has known
Bill for more than a decade through their work with Vision 2015. According to Votruba, much of Scheyer’s regional leadership has been achieved behind the scenes. “He has been willing over and over again to allow others to take credit for work that he has nurtured and led,” Votruba said. “Bill has demonstrated over and over again his capacity to convene a broad array of community organizations and leaders on behalf of a shared community agenda. He knows how to connect the dots on behalf of regional economic, social, and civic progress. Jeanne Schroer, president and CEO of the Catalytic Development Funding Corp. of Northern Kentucky, said Scheyer is a “very high-energy and results-oriented person.” She and Scheyer first met through the Quest

FORT THOMAS – A yoga class focuses on new mothers who need time to heal from pregnancy and the intensity of giving birth. Their partners in the class, offered at the Campbell County Public Library in Fort Thomas, are their own babies, ages 0-2. Children’s programmer Joyce Emery explains the program. Yoga promotes physical wellbeing in the practice of poses called asanas. These help new mothers recover and restore muscle flexibility lost during a nine-month pregnancy. Yoga can also assist new

planning process, the planning initiative that preceded Vision 2015. When the Catalytic Fund was formed in 2008, they became reacquainted. Scheyer was president of Vision 2015, which initiated and supported the Catalytic Fund. “Bill is excellent at bringing together organizations and individuals in agreement to drive specific outcomes and change,” Schroer said. “He is respectful of and open to all points of view. Personally, he is extremely friendly, outgoing and sincere. He is a good and loyal friend.” According to Schroer, another lasting impact Scheyer has had is in the creation of UpTech. UpTech is Greater Cincinnati’s tech accelerator program. At the end of February Scheyer will retire from Skyward. But he’s not hanging his hat up completely when it comes to community planning. Scheyer will serve as chairman of the board for Green Umbrella, an alliance working to maximize the environmental sustainability of Greater Cincinnati. Green Umbrella’s vision is to have the region recognized as one of the top 10 most sustainable metro areas in the nation by 2020. Scheyer has one piece of advice for the organization, The Alliance, that will take on Skyward projects: To remember that “anyone can make a difference and have impact on their community.”

Keeping Your Resolutions with Remke Markets Pat Iasillo Matthew 17:20 : For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you. If you ever belonged to a gym, you know at the beginning of January, the gym so full you can hardly find room to sweat. You also know then that the crowd thins out considerably by the end of January. It seems there is a mysterious force of nature on January 1st that compels people to run on treadmills, lift weights and jazzercise to reshape themselves. January 1st is followed by a magical date later in January when the populace is reminded they have better
things to do than pull muscles. Here are a few quotes I found about New Year’s resolutions: Jay Leno said, “Now there are more overweight people than average weight people so overweight people are now average which means, you have met your New Year’s resolution!” “My resolution is to stop hanging out with people who ask me about my New Year’s resolutions.” “This year I resolve to make better bad decisions.” “My New Year’s resolution is to stop procrastinating. I am not starting until next week though.” Why do we make resolu-
tions? More importantly, why do we make resolutions we do not keep? We must be missing something. It seems all we really need to do is to understand the process and we can achieve anything. I went on a search for wisdom and searched Amazon to see if there is any wisdom out there we are missing. I did a search using “self-help books.” There were 783,466 results! Are there really 783,466 people out there who have more knowledge than we have and are so smart they are able to get a book published so the ignorant masses can become better people? I think not. I think most of the authors are people who failed to keep most of their resolutions except one; write a book. It is my humble opinion we make the achievement of a goal far too complicated. It basically boils down to two things; visualization and do-
ing. You don’t need to buy a book. This is free information! Visualize what you want. By visualize, I don’t mean seeing it one time and then moving to get it done. I mean to think about it every day. In fact, obsess about it. You should wake up thinking about it and eventually the thought will permeate every part of your day. Eventually, you will do. Make sure the steps are small. Walk around the block today, walk around two blocks tomorrow. Stop smoking for a few hours today, add another hour on every day. Keep visualizing! What does this have to do with Remke Markets? If eating and being healthier is your goal, we are your solution. Putting more fruits and vegetables in your diet will go a long way to change how you look and feel. A number of years ago, Remke Markets was voted the best fresh produce in the city. We didn’t get

NKY partnership targets food insecurity cording to a study conducted by Feeding America, 22,760 individuals, including 7,610 children, are affected by food insecurity. In Boone County, there are 13,980 and in Campbell there are 12,320 who are food insecure. Feeding America is a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks that feed more than 46 million people through food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and other communitybased agencies. “Food insecurity refers to USDA’s measure of lack of access, at times, to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members and limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate foods,” Cook said. “Food insecure households are not necessarily food insecure all the time. Food insecurity may reflect a household’s need to make trade-offs between important basic needs, such as housing or medical bills, and purchasing nutritionally adequate foods.” The Freestore Foodbank works with a network of 350 community partners in 20 counties throughout Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, including food pan-
Melissa Reinert email@example.com
Between Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties almost 50,000 people are affected by food insecurity, according to Sarah Cook with the Freestore Foodbank. Generations Church in Independence is doing something about it. After partnering with the Freestore Foodbank on Jan. 14, the church opened its doors at 4161 Richardson Road in Independence to the hungry in their community. “There are a lot of poor people around this area unfortunately,” said Generations Church member Martin West. “Some have been pushed out of work and are looking for help. Some are grandparents trying to raise their grandchildren because their parents have disappeared or are in jail for drugs. It’s a sad situation.” With a truckload of food from the Freestore Foodbank and other donations they were able to provide food for up to a month to families and individuals in need from the South Kenton County area. In Kenton County alone, ac-
tries, soup kitchens, shelters, community centers, program sites, senior centers and daycare facilities. Specifically in Northern Kentucky, they serve nine counties through a network of 78 partners. In addition to pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and residential sites, these partners include five school pantries, seven Kids Cafe sites and 20 Power Pack sites. They have five additional partners that host mobile pantries throughout the year. Through the Safety Net Alliance of Northern Kentucky, the food bank collaborates with many organizations working to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of services provided to our hungry neighbors in Northern Kentucky. “Our number of partnerships in Northern Kentucky is increasing as more organizations, particularly in the education and faith-based sectors, are becoming aware of the hunger issue and want to do something about it,” Cook said. According to Cook, 1-in-6 neighbors in the 20 counties that they serve is at risk of hunger. “We provide 23 million meals to hungry children and families
each year through the help of our network,” Cook said. “Working with our network of partners allows us to get food directly to our hungry neighbors in the communities where they live; this is vital, because many of the neighbors that we serve face transportation barriers.” Generations Church is one such partner. The church, Cook said, has a history of providing emergency food to community members on an as-needed basis, supporting their neighborhood elementary school and Brighton Center’s Recovery Center for women. They recently partnered with the food bank to establish a monthly food pantry available to the public. Along with the standard staples of meat, bread and shelf stable items, they are able to send over 1,800 pounds of fresh produce for distribution to Northern Kentucky families. “The establishment of the food pantry at Generations Church helps to fill a gap in the Freestore Foodbank partner network,” Cook said. “While we have several valued partner pantries serving Kenton and Boone counties, Generations Church is physically located in
Independence and will meet a need for the residents in the Independence community.” That first day on Jan. 14, church member Martin West said Generations fed about 200 people. About 40 church volunteers provided cooked breakfast for the families and then helped them fill their shopping carts with bread, groceries, meat, fruits and vegetables which were then loaded in to their transport for the journey home. “For the first time around we thought that was pretty good,” he said. “We know there are more people out there who need help and we want people to know that our pantry exists. We are a very giving church and we believe that you should help those less off. We feel God said to us that this is what we need to be doing to help people.” The pantry will open on a monthly basis from 10 a.m. to noon Feb. 18, March 18, April 8, May 20 and June 17. A cooked breakfast will be served on those days at 9 a.m. Generations Church is looking for volunteers and donations to operate the pantry. For more information, call 859-282-6756.
Frontier adds 3 nonstop flights from Cincinnati port this spring, the airline announced Tuesday.

CVG direct connections coming to New York, Minneapolis, San Diego Sarah Brookbank firstname.lastname@example.org
Three new nonstop Frontier Airlines flights will be coming to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Air-
flights out of CVG, a substantial increase over the approximately 50 weekly flight Frontier had last year at this time. CVG is the sixth-largest city that Frontier serves. Tuesday’s development comes after Southwest Airlines’ Jan. 4 announcement it would begin nonstop flights to Chicago and Baltimore starting June 4. Frontier will now offer non-
stop flights to 16 markets, as well as seasonal flights to Cancun. The goal is to have something for everyone, whether they are traveling for business or pleasure, Squyres said. “We look at the numbers all the time and we’re always looking for new market opportunities and because of our clear partnership with the airport here and the support the community has given us over time,
we know that there is additional demand that has not been met for low-cost service,” Squyres said. “We feel that the market continues to be under-served and we’re here to fill that need.” Despite Southwest Airlines‘ recent announcement of service at CVG, Squyres said Frontier is not worried about the competition. Frontier will target different types of customers, she said.

Continuing on with the legacy of Mary Siereveld’s commitment to service, Woodland Middle School students decided to lend their talents in organizing a book drive to benefit the Northern Kentucky branch of the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. Students held the book drive during the weeks prior to Winter Break in an effort to provide comfort to fellow kids in the community. On Jan. 18, Siereveld and eight of her students had the privilege of delivering nearly 1,400 books. As a special treat, students also had the opportunity to take a tour and learn about a variety of health care careers with operations coordinator Ami Blackburn. Blackburn was impressed with the students and their collection of books stating, “The books entertain our patients and pass the time while they wait to see the doctor. Reading is a perfect opportunity to bond with a child. Our speech coordinator was extremely excited – the bookcase in the speech waiting room has been empty for quite some time.” Children’s added it looks forward to Siereveld’s classes continuing their good works as they connect their love of reading and sharing it with

KENTUCKY STATE GOVERNMENT
Bevin touts bright future as many Democrats skip speech Scott Wartman firstname.lastname@example.org
With Republicans in complete control of all branches of state government, Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin painted a rosy picture of Kentucky’s future. It was Bevin’s first State of the Commonwealth address since Kentucky Republicans took control of the Kentucky House this past election. That might be why so many Democrats decided to skip it Feb. 8.. Bevin spoke to many empty seats of Democratic lawmakers. Local Reps. Arnold Simpson, D-Covington, and Dennis Keene, DWilder, didn’t attend and couldn’t be reached for comment. State Rep. Attica Scott, D-Louisville, tweeted that she didn’t attend because “she will not endorse the hurtful agenda” of Bevin. But Democratic leaders played coy. There wasn’t an organized boycott by the Democrats, said Minority Floor Leader Rocky Adkins, D-Sandy Hook. “Many were here, though,” Adkins said. “There’s many that had different events that they went to. I don’t know.” Senate Majority Leader Damon Thayer, RGeorgetown, laughed off the Democrats’ absence. “Elections have consequences,” Thayer said. “The fact of the matter is, there’s just not that many Democrats left over here.” Bevin’s hour long speech, delivered in his typical improvised style without a teleprompter,

praised Kentucky’s voters. He started by reading glowing emails he’s received from residents, including a custodian from Campbell Ridge Elementary in Alexandria. “You asked for change,” he said. “Change has come in this legislative body. It is humbling to us, inspiring to us the way you voters turned this House around.” He promised Kentucky would become an engineering and manufacturing leader. This will happen through more business-friendly taxes, investment into workforce education and addressing the pension debt, among other initiatives, Bevin said. “I sing it loudly, and I sing it proudly when I’m with other governors,” he said. “We will be the absolute center for excellence with engineering and manufacturing. That pendulum will be swinging back to America. ...” Bevin also pledged tax reform in a special session. It might involve eliminating or reducing the state’s income tax in favor of a sales tax. Many
Republicans use Tennessee as an example of a tax code they admire. Tennessee doesn’t tax wages and relies on a sales tax. Democrats have long opposed relying on sales taxes, seeing it as taxing the poor and the rich alike with no regard to personal income. One thing Bevin didn’t mention until the very end of his speech was heroin. He mentioned it while listing all the people who won’t find Kentucky welcoming – welfare cheats, sexual predators, deadbeat dads and drug dealers. “If you’re a drug dealer, especially someone who is not an addict but is creating addicts, you’re not going to want to live in Kentucky,” Bevin said. But for Northern Kentucky, the region’s heroin scourge will loom large in this session of the General Assembly. A bill filed by Sen. John Schickel, R-Union, would make dealing any amount of heroin and the opiate fentanyl a class C felony punishable by five to 10 years in prison. Currently, the law requires two grams of heroin to make trafficking a class C felony. Bevin ended his speech encouraging people to get involved. “We’re going to clean this state up,” Bevin said. “Get out there, volunteer and take pride in Kentucky.”

Little helpers create muffin recipe Blueberry banana muffins
I could blame a visit from the church ladies for the reason I left the butter out of a muffin recipe I’m sharing today. But I won’t, because even if they didn’t stop to visit I might have forgotten the butter anyway. That sometimes happens when I’m baking with the little ones. (And truth be told, it happens once in a while even when I’m by myself!) My granddaughters, Emerson, 4, and Ellery, 2, wanted to make banana muffins. That was fine with me since the bananas were too ripe to Rita eat so they were perfect for making Heikenfeld muffins. “Can we put some blueberries in RITA’S KITCHEN too?” Emerson asked. My reply was “Sure, why not.” So the banana muffins turned into blueberry banana muffins and even without the butter, they were yummy, not as tender as usual, but A-OK!
Muffins are an excellent item to make with kids, since the batter doesn’t require much mixing, good for their short attention span. For step-by-step photos, check out my abouteating.com site. 1-1/2 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt Handful or so blueberries (optional) 2-3 very ripe bananas, mashed smooth 3/4 cup sugar 1 egg 1/3 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350. Spray muffin pans. Whisk flour, baking powder, soda and salt together. If adding blueberries, stir them in gently. In a separate bowl, combine bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter together. Pour flour mixture on top and mix just until dry ingredients are incorporated. Mixture will still be a bit lumpy. Don’t over mix since that may create tunnels in the baked muffin, and they will be less tender. Scoop into pans about 2/3 full. Bake 25 minutes or so until top springs back when lightly tapped.
Readers want to know When is a shoulder a butt? In spite of what the name implies, pork butt comes from the front leg of the pig. It got its name from the wooden barrels, called butts, that it was once packed in. Not only that, the term originated in Boston and that’s why you sometimes hear pork butt called Boston butt. The butt is cut from the upper half of the shoulder on top of the leg. The bottom half of the shoulder is called a picnic roast closer to the foot. Fresh pork butt is the same as fresh pork shoulder. That’s what I use in goetta. What is a French vegetable peeler?” I love this gadget. It’s a “y” shaped peeler and it makes it easy to get very thin, wide slices from zucchini, carrots, etc.

Reduced calories in rice: Clarification I wanted to clarify the information included in my column about reducing the amount of calories in rice by adding coconut oil. Here’s what Dr. Oz has to say about cooking 1 cup rice, which contains about 200 calories, and adding coconut oil:
Tip from Rita’s kitchen Always add fresh fruit to dry ingredients to prevent them sinking to the bottom during baking. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD
Emerson Heikenfeld shows off the banana blueberry muffins she helped create.
Add teaspoon of coconut oil to rice: Coconut oil contains healthy fats that can change the composition of the starch in rice to reduce calories. Rice is made up of both digestible and resistant starches, and coconut oil increases the resistant starch levels of rice – meaning that fewer calories will be digested. Simply add the coconut oil to the boiling water and then add in the rice. Cool and reheat the rice: The process of heating up already-cooled rice makes its resistant starch increase even more to cut out at least 100 calories from your serving. After you precook your rice, let it cool in your refrigerator for about 12 hours. Then reheat it before you serve it.

Lois Maas’ spinach salad dressing For Mitch, a Milford reader. “I lost the recipe for a spinach salad dressing that had horseradish mustard in it. We really liked it. Can you find it again?” Yes, I can! The recipe originated with Lois Maas, a Cherry Grove reader. Well, this isn’t exactly Lois’ recipe. “My sister gave it to me,” she said. If I remember correctly, Lois makes a spinach salad with hard boiled eggs, bacon and Pepperidge Farm stuffing croutons on top. The recipe here is only slightly adapted. Put everything in blender and blend until well mixed: 2/3 cup canola oil Up to 2/3 cup sugar 1/3 cup wine vinegar or more to taste 3 tablespoons horseradish mustard (Plochman’s is always good) 1 teaspoon salt 1 medium onion

Brent Spence Bridge: The time is now For over 50 years now, countless vehicles have traveled from Northern Kentucky into Ohio, and vice versa, on the Brent Spence Bridge. Whether to transport goods, travel or engage in commerce, Brent Spence has been heavily utilized over the years, and this traffic has taken its toll. Currently operating at nearly three times what it was designed to carry, a new bridge is essential, yet this project has repeatedly been kicked to the curb. However, thanks to the current administration, the needs of Northern Kentucky, Greater Cincinnati and the entire Midwest could soon be placed near the front of the line in Washington, D.C. According to recent media reports, replacing the Brent Spence Bridge is No. 2 on the president’s list of infrastructure priorities. While this alone is welcome news for our region, the details are even better. This $2.5 billion project, which will directly create 2,200 jobs, would be half-funded by private investors. This is a boon to taxpayers whose dollars are normally spent without concern. And those
jobs aren’t even accounting for the increased economic activAdam Koenig ity that is sure to COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST come as a COLUMNIST result of the construction of a newer, more modern bridge. Partnering the private sector with government can produce tangible benefits in a much more efficient manner. This was our thinking behind passage of House Bill 309 last session, which set up a regulatory framework for Public-Private Partnerships, or P3’s, in Kentucky. It was an honor for me to support this legislation, which Governor Bevin signed into law in 2016. P3’s allow the public and private sector to partner in financing capital projects and other government services. This bill allows our government to join with businesses to move forward on transportation projects. As a protection for Northern Kentuckians, HB 309 specified that no
tolls would be put on the Brent Spence Bridge. This ensures that we lessen the burden placed on Northern Kentuckians as the process moves forward. Government needs to be innovative and begin partnering with the other institutions of our society, whether it be other governments or the private sector. Collaboration is key, and P3’s are an invaluable tool for the government to use to more efficiently service its citizens. Although detractors can always find occasional issues, these projects have been extraordinarily successful across the country, and it’s time we capitalize on their effectiveness. It is heartening that President Trump realizes this, as stimulating private business is good for economic growth and job creation. This is particularly important in this case, as the current bridge has been labeled “functionally obsolete” by the National Bridge Inventory. The impact of this move on our region is immeasurable, and fantastic for the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Ken-
tucky area as a whole. Northern Kentucky is a thriving area with an emerging economy, sound communities and an active and engaged citizenry. New opportunities have allowed businesses to grow and communities to succeed, but our infrastructure has not kept up with challenges of the 21st century. In order to build a 21st century economy, then we must have top-rate infrastructure to match it. This is why it is critically important for construction to begin on a new Brent Spence Bridge, and I look forward to seeing the role that private sector investors will play in the project. While we will continue to wait and see what the final transportation plan looks like, I look forward to seeing the necessary planning and permitting begin. I look forward to seeing the 115th Congress work with the president to rebuild our nation’s infrastructure, so that we have the necessary resources for our industries and people to succeed. I commend the new administration for its decision, and I’m excited to work with our federal delegation to get this project done. Rep. Adam Koenig, RErlanger, represents the 69th District in the Kentucky House. His district includes parts of Kenton and Boone counties.
Last week’s question Do President Trump’s recent orders involving border security and immigration make the country more safe or less safe?
“With the uncertainty in the world I would say it will make it safer with better vetting.” Patrick Kevin George
“Neither yet. I think it is legitimate to put temporary hold while his team checks how stringent the standards are and reacts to what they find.” Joy Kent Tarleton
“He needs to let the vetting process go on without the ‘so-called’ religious ‘bans.’ If he wants to make the vetting process longer and more thorough, so be it. But he shouldn’t unilaterally stop people from coming into this country who have already been through the process and obtained their right to be here.” Elizabeth Mason-Hill
“Less safe. We rely on immigrants and friends from the seven countries and others to provide us with intelligence and translation services, on the Homeland Security front. This ban is insult-

Also, there is already evidence that ISIS is using Trump’s ban as propaganda to recruit more terrorists. I am ashamed of our country and most of all, President Trump for his snap, rash attempt at making us safer, it’s not.” Kathy Shockey Groob
“In a weird way, I feel like it’s made us more safe, not because he did it, but because the Judicial branch overturned it, letting us all know that no one person has say over everything. Checks and balances.” Nora Turner

I disagree with the guest column by Kimberly Kennedy, supporting the need for Common Core in our schools. I am not a current or former educator, but I was in the workforce for 30-plus years and I believe my education served me well. The world has changed, but I believe some of our fundamental mathematics instruction should remain intact. Yes, states were not mandated to adopt Common Core, but by adopting it, states were in a better position for federal funding (quid pro quo). Eureka Math is aligned with the Common Core. This math equates mathematical concepts to stories, with the aim of developing conceptual understanding. This “concept” method is confusing to say the least, especially to a fourthgrader. These students, struggling with these concepts, unfortunately can seldom get help with their homework from parents or other family members. These are concepts that were never taught to their generation. Needless to say, a simple problem such as 35 divided by 2 will take substantially longer to solve with Eureka Math. You would first have to draw a diagram to determine the area model and then de-
termine the distributive property to solve the problem. I would hate to see this technique applied to real life circumstances, like quickly determining a price per unit! Mathematics have concrete answers, and no amount of “critical thinking” will change the answer. As far as trying to expand the concept of how numbers work, memorization should be a key component of how to solve a problem. I feel this social experiment will be a rerun of other failed educational initiatives. One that comes to mind was learning to spell by teaching only by memorization, versus learning phonics also. There is research and documentation on both sides of this issue. My hat is off to the dedicated educators out there, but in this case, I believe they are doing the wrong thing, for the right reason.

Kentucky Chamber applauds Thayer The Kentucky Chamber applauds Senate Majority Floor Leader Damon Thayer on his leadership to make right-towork legislation a reality during the first week of the 2017 General Assembly, ensuring Kentucky is a state where businesses want to locate.

The Chamber has long advocated for the passage of right-to-work legislation which simply prohibits requiring a worker to join a union as a condition of employment. We see right-to-work as an economic development issue. Over the years, we have noticed that major companies have not been considering Kentucky because we were not a rightto-work state. Kentucky businessman Steve Branscum, a former member of our board of directors, recently told us that his construction company will be one of the many companies directly benefited by this historic legislation, adding “Passage of rightto-work legislation will help the commonwealth be more attractive to companies seeking to locate their business in the state, leading to more jobs and better opportunities for all Kentuckians.” The Kentucky Chamber, representing thousands of businesses across the state, has advocated right-to-work legislation for at least 30 years. We congratulate the General Assembly and Governor Bevin for having the courage to pass this legislation and to make Kentucky “open for business.” Dave Adkisson President & CEO Kentucky Chamber of Commerce

Pioneers win rare title James Weber firstname.lastname@example.org
Despite producing some of Northern Kentucky’s most decorated wrestlers over the years, it has been three decades since Simon Kenton has had a regional championship team. The Pioneers broke that streak Saturday in the Region 6 championships at Dixie Heights, coming from behind to win the team title. SK scored 216 points to edge Walton-Verona by 8.5. It is SK’s fourth alltime championship and first since 1987 “It was an experience,” said senior Dante Castellano. “Senior year, coming out and getting a regional title which we haven’t won in over 30 years. It was a fun experience. We did it with a great group of guys, this team is a great group of guys.” The Pioneers were trailing the Bearcats for virtually the entire tournament before coming up with several clutch performances in the championship round. SK had a regionbest 10 state qualifiers overall and three champions versus eight qualifiers and two champs for the Bearcats. The Pioneers went 3-1 in championship matches and 5-1 in the third-place bouts. W-V had finalists in seven of the 14 weight classes but went 2-5 in those matches. “We were down nine and a half points entering the finals,” said SK head coach Steve Kaiser. “We won some matches against guys we haven’t beat before, at least this year. The guys stepped up. It’s exciting. We had a good weekend and wrestled hard. I’m glad all my seniors got through. It’s good to see them wrestling in the state tournament.” SK had the most titlists of any school with Castellano winning at 132, senior Casey Cornett at 170 and senior Elijah Jackson at 182. Castellano improved to 34-1 with four dominant wins. Cornett, ranked first in Kentucky and 14th in the nation, improved to 51-3 with three pins in a total of five minutes, seven seconds. Jackson, a senior, improved to 36-8 by upsetting Dixie Heights senior Roy Bowers in the final. Jackson won by forfeit when Bowers ran out of injury time midway through the third period with the wrestlers locked up in a 1-1 tie. “You hate to see it end like that but those things happen,” Kaiser said. “Elijah has been working really hard and I think he could have got it anyway. You never know. Bowers is tough.” The Pioneer journey typified the state of Northern Kentucky wrestling in recent years. Region 6 has continually produced dominant wrestlers but team dominance has decreased in favor of more parity and balance throughout the schools. Cornett was one of four lo-

The others were Campbell County Brady Wells at 120, Walton-Verona junior Ryan Moore at 126 and W-V teammate Mason Smith at 160. Meanwhile, seven of the 12 entering teams had a regional champion, and six had at least two. All 12 teams had a state qualifier and eight had at least four of them. Only eight of the 14 No. 1 seeds in the weight classes defended those seeds with first-place medals. Third-place Scott was led by sophomore Brendan Pye, who won at 106 to improve to 45-2, and junior Gerald Seeney at 195. Fourth-place Dixie won the last two crowns of the day, with senior Jacob Peters winning 220 and junior Kairus Washington at 285. Both won by pin. Washington came from a 3-1 deficit in the third period to win his second straight title.

Notre Dame Academy and Covington Catholic reasserted their dominance at Saturday’s Region 7 swimming and diving championships at Silverlake and Scott High School by winning 19th consecutive crowns. Notre Dame totaled 520 points, far outdistancing girls’ team runner-up Ryle (316). “Obviously, a victory is always sweet,” said Notre Dame coach Courtney Sorrell, who has guided the Pandas to their last two regional crowns. She was named female coach of the year. “But, our focus since the beginning of the season has been on the state meet. Our attitude is get it done at the region and set us up for state.” The top two finishers in each event automatically qualify for the Feb. 24-25 KHSAA state swimming and diving championships at Louisville’s Ralph Wright Natatorium.

What’s the hype about coconut oil? Have you heard the health claims about coconut oil? There are rumors that it can do everything from cure Alzheimer’s disease and prevent cancer to prompt weight loss. Coconut oil has been deemed the new miracle food – and it makes a tasty pie crust, too. Could it be true? Our friends at Michigan State University Extension have written an informative article on this subject. They say, the first question might be “How is coconut oil different from other oils?” Well, it is the most saturated fat known to us. Coconut oil is 92 percent saturated, therefore
it is solid at room temperature. Technically we should be calling it Kathy R. coconut Byrnes fat – not oil. By EXTENDING KNOWLEDGE contrast, other vegetable oils are only around 15 percent saturated, lard from beef fat is only 50 percent saturated and butter is 63 percent saturated. Coconut oil also has a different chemical structure than other oils. The chemical structure of co-
Tree Summit happening on Feb. 25 Taking Root is inviting concerned community members to attend the Great Tree Summit 2017 at 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 25, at the Boone County Extension Enrichment Center in Burlington. The summit will be an educational and inspirational event with ideas and discussion about how to plant and protect more trees in our communities. The event will feature keynote and local speakers, a question-and-answer session, and a brief awards ceremony along with light refreshments, door prizes, exhibits and post-session options for continuing discussion about community projects, a film viewing or a Boone County site tour. Taking Root is a collaborative, broad-based partnership working to inspire and empower all to conserve and improve our region’s unique and threatened tree canopy. Local trees are facing a crisis from the impacts of invasive insects and plants and a host of other threats that are, in turn, affecting the natural and built environments, public budgets and quality of life. Taking Root’s goals are for better tree management, greater awareness of tree benefits, stronger sense of stewardship and the planting of 2 million trees by 2020 – one for everyone in the eight-county region. The event’s keynote speaker, renowned horticulturist Tom Smarr, will share his experience in managing and designing natural areas and expanding green space for Louisville’s 21st Century Parks and the New York High-
line. A panel of local communities and a Q and A session will provide new insights for envisioning how your community can plant and maintain more trees. There will be an update on Taking Root progress and initiatives and awards given to a few of those who exemplify how we can build healthier forests. You can register for the Great Tree Summit for $10 at http://www. takingroot.info/4thannual-great-treesummit/ or at the event itself. Volunteering at the event allows for free admittance. Directions and an agenda to the event can be found on the registration and volunteer forms. Parking is free.

conut oil is about 60 percent medium chain triglyceride (MCT) with only about 40 percent long chain triglyceride (LCT). Other oils, those that are less saturated, are nearly 100 percent LCT. What does that mean to our bodies? Because MCTs are transported directly from the intestine to the liver for fuel, they are more likely to get burned for fuel than deposited as fat. That sounds great, but overall the potential for benefit to our waistline and our cardiovascular
health seems to be minimal at best, lagging behind canola and olive oil. If we let go of the wild and largely unfounded health claims about coconut oil, what we might actually be looking for is permission to escape the lowfat diet. The Harvard School of Public Health takes the stance that we need adequate healthy dietary fat instead of a diet as devoid of fat as possible . Rather than abstinence or a low-fat diet, Harvard is asking that we make the best possible choice when
choosing dietary fat. Could this be good advice? Over the last decade Americans have struggled with obesity, heart disease and diabetes. Our primary mantra has been to balance the calories eaten with the calories expended, lose the weight and get healthy. Little attention has been paid to the actual quality of the calorie eaten. Research is showing us that there is a correlation between the kind of calories eaten and health – regardless of weight.
For best overall health, balance your calories and activity levels, but choose high-quality calories, including those fats from nuts, seeds and healthy oils. Resist the urge to believe health claims that are too good to be true, trusting instead impartial, critical reviews of the research. Kathy R. Byrnes is Kenton County family and consumer sciences agent for University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service.

4B • SOUTH KENTON RECORDER • FEBRUARY 16, 2017
Just throw up your hands As a parent, obedience is a subject we cover often in our house. From obedience regarding daily chores, to being obedient in our prayer and devotion time, we find ourselves covering the topic a lot. Today, during my reading time, I found myself in the book of Exodus. Expecting to be refreshed about the fact that God has great plans for my family and we are all headed to the Promised Land, I was a bit shocked at the revelation that surfaced for me. As I was reading in the book of Exodus, I learned what
seemed like a totally new aspect of obedience. Some may call Julie it “active House obedience.” FAITH NOTES As a Christian I regularly remind myself and others around me that even in hard times, God is fighting for us and sometimes we need to simply wait, be patient, and let God do His work. Although I agree, in the book of Exodus as Moses
found himself again and again at the doorstep of Pharaoh asking for the people to be set free, God surely executed the miracles, but He required action on the part of Moses as well. Each time a plague was inflicted, Moses was required to “throw down the rod,” or “throw up his hands.” It was this “active obedience” that proved to God He believed, and therefore prompted God to show His miraculous power. I believe the same is true for us. Although, patience is definitely something we all need at times,

God also requires us to throw up our hands in obedience, showing the world that we believe in Him, and His miracle working power. Another incredible aspect of God’s power in the Exodus of the Israelites from the Egyptians, was the timing. We learn in the book of Exodus, that the Israelites were called to move out of slavery and into freedom at the very height of Egyptian power. In other words, the Egyptians were more powerful than ever at this time, and escaping their grip would truly take a miracle. Friend, God wants to remind you today that He can free you from your strongholds when they have their fiercest grip on you or your loved ones. You don’t have to wait until you’re sober a few days, or you get a few more bills paid off, or your spouse gets a little more help. God wants to prove to you that He can rescue you right now! Right in the middle of debt, addiction, depression, or any other bondage that is robbing you of the freedom God wants in your life. All He asks is that you believe. And the best way to show your obedience is to throw your hands in the air and claim, “I believe.” Throw your hands up right now! Your exodus into the promised land awaits! Julie House of Independence is founder of Equipped Ministries, a Christian-based health and wellness program.

provided by their Hospice of the Bluegrass team, and wanted to ensure other families would have the same access. Sparks turned her grief into action by establishing an annual event to raise money for Hospice of the Bluegrass. The Fore Kids! Golf Classic has been held for seven years and has raised nearly $200,000 to provide hospice care to other children. Through her generosity, Sparks has touched many lives. Hospice of the Bluegrass recently honored Sparks at the Annual National Philanthropy Day Celebration, organized by the Association of Fundraising Professionals Bluegrass Chapter for making a profound difference in her community and beyond.
