Church gathering planned for March 2

By Amy Scalf ascalf@nky.com

MORNING VIEW — Communities conquer tragedies. Straight-line winds and tornadoes that tore through southern Kenton County on the afternoon of March 2, 2012, brought not only death, destruction and sorrow, but also an opportunity for neighbors to come together and rebuild their community even stronger. The members of Piner Baptist Church want to celebrate their triumph over the tornadoes’ devastation with a gathering from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sat-

BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

urday, March 2, at their worship center, 15044 Madison Pike. “We just want to celebrate and rejoice in the fact that we’re still standing,” said event organizer and Piner Baptist Church member Amy Heeger. “We’re just a small community, but we stood together in a mighty way. We want a chance to celebrate with all of these people, whether they were emergency workers, volunteers or survivors, and just look back on this past year and celebrate it.” The tornadoes’ toll included the lives of four Northern Kentucky residents, hundreds of homes and numerous animals. Initially rated an EF3 event, categorized as a “strong” tornado on the Enhanced Fujita Scale, based on intensity and area, the

tornadoes were later determined to be EF4, the secondworst type, categorized as “violent,” with winds from166 to 200 mph. Steve Hensley Kenton County’s Director of Homeland Security and Emergency Management said, “The people who live in that community is what made this rebuilding process a success. The community came together as a whole to respond to not only their own needs but the needs of their neighbors.” Hensley said several safety issues that came up during the tornado aftermath have been remedied. “We had already determined that the Piner Fire Department would be incident command if an incident affected that area,

but the whole area was out of power. We found we were limited to the amount of backup generated power to run our command center,” he said. Since then, the county received a $43,150 grant to install a permanently affixed generator at the fire department, which he said has already supplied backup power during a two-hour power outage. Corporate sponsors Duke Energy and Owen Electric and the Kenton County Rotary Club have supplied funds to purchase a new storm warning siren. Those funds will also help upgrade computers and communications equipment in the mobile command center. Visit nky.com/kentoncounty for more community news

St. Elizabeth hosting cancer study

Information session being held Feb. 27 By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

St. Elizabeth Healthcare locations in Edgewood, Fort Thomas and Florence will be the site of a major long-term cancer study for the American Cancer Society.

The study will seek people ages 30-65 who have never had any type of cancer, said Guy Karrick, public relations manager for St. Elizabeth. The study will be conducted through St. Elizabeth during the dates of April 17-19. Titled “Cancer Prevention Study-3” (CPS-3), it is the continuation of major cancer research studies, Karrick said. “This one is a long-term

study, a 20- to 30-year study,” he said. “The first one (study) was the one that linked lung cancer with cigarette smoking.” The second study demonstrated the link between larger waist-size and increased death rate from cancer and other causes, according to a news release from St. Elizabeth. The goal is to have 500 people enroll in the study through St. Elizabeth, Karrick said.

The goal of CPS-3 is to help researchers better understand lifestyle, environmental and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer, according to the news release. “To me, this is a legacy,” he said. “This something my generation can leave behind, and hopefully one day my kids or their kids can live in a cancerfree society or at least a world where it is controllable.”

NKU students look for link to meteor By Amy Scalf ascalf@nky.com

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS —

Testing an unidentified object Walton-Verona Elementary students found in a Piner park was going to allow Bill Schneider’s Integrated Science class

a chance to use the tests they’d talked about and to share the results. After a meteor exploded in the Russian sky, he wondered if his Northern Kentucky University students were going to make headline news of their own. “Whether this turns out to be a meteorite or not, we’re really just testing to help these kids learn about science. We’re going to use all this information to help them grow as students,” said Jordan Browning. Along with Katelyn Gabbard, Nathan Garbig and Allie Singleton, Browning tested the me-

tallic object for mass and volume to determine its density, which measured 6.35 grams per cubic centimeter - part way between the densities of iron and hematite, both substances that could make up a meteorite. Gabbard said the object conducts a small amount of electricity, which she said is a meteorite characteristic. The object was not attracted to a magnet, so Garbig sought to find metals that could conduct electricity but aren’t magnetic: aluminum, gold, copper and brass. “If we can confirm it’s

not a meteorite, we can research what kind of metal it is,” said Browning. Schneider said the timing of the Russian meteor and this project was “just perfect.” “When the news of that

meteor hit, I thought, we really have a chance to practice what we teach. What we’re trying to do here is relevant. Students can see they take what they learned last week and use it to figure something out,” he said.

TAYLOR MILL — It’s not quite spring, but tweets are coming from the city of Taylor Mill. City Administrative Officer Jill Bailey said @taylormill_city recently started an account at Twitter.com. Mayor Dan Bell said he was glad to add the social media network to the city’s existing online presence, which includes the website at www.taylormillky.gov , and Facebook pages for the city office, and the fire and police departments. “We’re mass communicating,” said Bell. “To me it’s all about sharing information. So many people don’t know what the city offers or who the city leaders are, but most of them are on Twitter or Facebook. So, if they’ll take the time to plug us in, so to speak, we’ll tell you what’s going on. It encourages people to be engaged with the city.” Bell will continue to provide his “From the Mayor’s Desk” email newsletter, and said monthly events will still be listed on the city website. Bailey said she is working on copy for a website update that is in the works. She’s just not sure when it will be published online. “We’re just not far along in the process to determine a timeline,” she said. For more information about Taylor Mill, call 859-581-3234.

Life coach helps listeners reach for the stars By Amy Scalf ascalf@nky.com

As a life coach and radio show host, Star Staubach helps clients and listeners motivated to keep New Year’s resolutions on track, follow their bliss and to make hits out of life’s curve balls. She is living her own dream. In six months on blogtalkradio, a free Internetbased talk radio network, Staubach has gained more than 53,000 listeners from her Kenton County home. “If you told me six months ago this would happen, I would not have known how it could be possible,” she said. “It’s unbelievable. That’s the same transformation I see in my clients. The obstacles in front of us seem insurmountable, and they don’t think they’re going to achieve it.” She’s also available at her website, stellarevolutioncoaching.com, on Twitter as @stellarcoach, and on YouTube as LifeMakeoverCoach. Staubach said grand life changes like losing weight or improving health and fitness can start with simple changes, like drinking eight glasses of water each day. “We all know we’re supposed to do it, but we don’t. We think that little change won’t make a difference, but it does,” she said. When Staubach interviewed Christine Carter, a sociologist and “happi-

ness expert,” she talked about why small steps work. “We set this big agenda, and the key to success is starting small,” she said. “If you want to start running, every day for the first week, you just put your running shoes on. We have habits and neural pathways in our brains that keep us in the same pattern. When we want to form a new habit, we need to form new neural pathways and ways to support ourselves in successfully making a new habit or a new way of being. You can’t be on auto-pilot, just going through the motions. We expect to jump into new resolutions without making baby steps. We overlook them because we think they’re too small and we can do more, and we can, but it’s a building process.” Former Union resident Meredith Keith-Chirch

said Staubach helped her deal with unexpected life changes, as the stay-athome-mom of a toddler suddenly received full custody of two teenage stepchildren. “Star helped me to uncover what I already had within me to make decisions and take control of my life again. She asked the hard questions that at first I thought I could not answer, but by helping me realize that I did, in fact, have the answers, she helped me get out of that victim mentality that I was slipping into,” said Keith-Chirch. “Sometimes it takes someone outside of a situation to breathe new life and possibility into a challenge or goal. Star is very positive and vibrant, and is like a wake-up call for someone who just can’t get out of a rut to solve a problem.” Staubach said she’s the proof that her ideas work. “I have real days. I have fear. That’s why I get it and that’s why I can help my clients,” she said. “I have come from chaos and dysfunction, and surrounding me is substance abuse and mental illness. I have all that stuff in my family, in my genetics. I have all of that available to me, but that's not an option for me. I don't let that be an option. I have had those real life experiences and I’m able to relate to them with real empathy and support them with real skills, real tools that work,” she said.

Program targets non-runners By Chris Mayhew cmayhew@nky.com

Get up and lace up. Getting people who are not regular runners into shape by stepping out of the house is the mission of an eight-week “Sit to Fit” fitness program offered by Bob Roncker’s Running Spot and St. Elizabeth Healthcare. The exercise group will meet regularly at St. Elizabeth Sports Medicine, 830 Thomas More Parkway, Edgewood beginning Monday, March 11 at 6:30 p.m. The exercise sessions will continue each Monday and Thursday at 6:30 p.m. for eight weeks. It’s the second time for the class, designed to be a fun way to exercise, said Guy Karrick, public relations manager for St. Elizabeth. “These are basically for people who do not exercise,” Karrick said. The target audience is “couch potatoes,” and the goal is to start out walking and work up to being able to run a 5K, he said. Running the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon 5K Saturday, May 4, is an optional goal for the group’s members to complete the program, Karrick said. One of the reasons Roncker’s exercise program is successful is because the group setting allows people to support

of personal attention, according to a news release from St. Elizabeth. The $50 cost includes a shirt, socks, gift card, health and wellness information and motivational tips. The program is targeted at people who have done little or no exercising, but want to begin, said Roncker in the news release. “Many times people are intimidated and fearful of starting something like this,” Roncker said. “But our Sit to Fit program is a very nonthreatening, enjoyable and sound program that will produce results.”

Scott rocks educational music performance By Amy Scalf ascalf@nky.com

TAYLOR MILL — Scott High

School hosted a blast from the past along with more than 500 elementary students on Feb. 6 as talented students presented “School House Rock! Live.” Students performed a variety of songs featured on “School House Rock!,” a series of animated educational briefs, which aired during commercial breaks between Saturday morning cartoons in the 1970s and ‘80s. During the hour-long revue, math and grammar concepts, as well as science and history, are explained via catchy melodies, in “Three is the Magic Number,” “Verbs: That’s What’s Happening” and “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, Get Your Adverbs Here.” “Even if you haven’t heard the songs before, you’ll leave today humming them,” said Scott Drama Director Amanda Volpenhein during the show’s introduction. Elementary students arrived from Fort Wright, Taylor Mill and Villa Madonna and were greeted by Scott Principal Brennon Sapp before they were treated to music from “The Lion King” and selected Broadway classics performed by the Scott High School Band. Speaking of treats, each student left with a frosted sugar cookie, provided by culinary arts students, and a listing of future Scott High performances.

FORT MITCHELL — Originality is key for three Beechwood Schools students who won distinction with the Sons of the American Revolution’s Knights Essay Contest. Evan Bishop, Jack Campbell and Jay Palmieri snagged the top three spots in the Simon Kenton Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution Chapter’s contest. Beechwood students often get the top three spots, said Tim Jones, AP U.S. history teacher at Beechwood. Beechwood’s AP U.S. history students are required to write an essay on the Revolutionary War, Declaration of Independence or the Constitution for this contest. The 800- to 1,200-word essays are considered a test grade, Jones said. “I wrote about ‘Samuel Adams, Torch of the Revolution,’” said Bishop, 17, who got first place. “I thought he seemed interesting.” Bishop receives a medal and a monetary prize for winning.

Famous figures weren’t exactly featured in Campbell and Palmieri’s essays. Instead the students looked for unique topics to touch on. “I wrote about Valley Forge and Morristown. A lot of people know about Valley Forge, not a lot about Morristown,” Campbell, 18, said, adding his paper was on surviving winter during the Revolutionary War. “... It’s interesting to see how people and events shaped how we are today.” Next, Bishop and Campbell will compete in a Kentuckywide competition because they won first and second places in the Simon Kenton chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution contest. Palmieri focused on how a group of individuals, the Tories, lived during the period of the Revolutionary War. “The Tories are the people that supported the British during the war,” Palmieri said. “Many people don’t talk about them. A lot lived in Georgia and went to Canada after the war.” Visit www.nky.com/FortMitchell for more community news

CHAMPIONSHIPS

By James Weber jweber@nky.com

INDEPENDENCE — He has younger cousins and even a baby nephew who may dominate the sport eventually. But the Cooper name is retired for now in Simon Kenton wrestling history after senior Kevin Cooper finished with a flourish. Cooper won his third state championship Feb. 16 at Alltech Arena, beating St. Xavier’s Dominic Lampe 10-0 in the title match at 152 pounds. Cooper finished 51-5 for his senior season. “Threepeat - it’s awesome,” he said. “I couldn’t ask for anything better. I wanted to carry that tradition, the family tradition, and keep it rolling.” Cooper matched his brother Brad with three state champions, adding to four other titles won by brothers and cousins since 2001, plus four state track championships in throwing by Brossart graduate Troy Cooper, another cousin. Kevin Cooper beat Lampe for the third time this year, though the first two were much closer matches. “I had to pick up the pace,” he said. “Coach told me we needed a major and I went and got it. I was just trying to defend his ankle shots, and keep his right hand tied up so he couldn’t ankle-pick me.” Cooper, who will wrestle for Tennessee-Chattanooga, planned to celebrate Sunday before getting right back to work the next day. “I’m going to miss it,” he said. “High school is fun. I love the team and the team is my family. I’m going to miss it next year.” The Pioneers celebrated a second state champ later, as senior Hiero Chamblee took his first state title, beating Brandon Pledger of St. Xavier 2-0. Chamblee, who finished 49-6, maneuvered out of holds twice for one-point escapes, and neither wrestler came real close to a scoring move beyond that. “I kept my head up, didn’t let him get takedowns, didn’t make any mistakes,” Chamblee said. “The final minute was exhilarating. I was trying to ride him out, don’t let him go.” The title was redemption for Chamblee, who was state run-

ner-up last year and regional runner-up last week. He is working on getting to wrestle in college and has opportunities including Campbellsville and Air Force. “I’d like to thank my friends and family who showed up to support me, my coaches and teammates,” he said. “I couldn’t have got here without them.” Senior Joey Parrott finished second at 126 and 48-5 overall. He lost the state final 19-7 to Union County senior Brock Ervin, who will graduate with his fourth state title. “I went out there and wrestled my best,” he said. “I got him beat a couple of times, and I wrestled good. I really would have liked to be at the top of the podium, but I lost to a great guy who’s going to go D-I. I didn’t get teched or get pinned, and I’m pretty happy with that.” Parrott is likely to attend Louisville and study medicine. “(It’s) how great of a sport this is and how much self-confiSee STATE, Page A8

» Ben Nevels has been hired as the head football coach at Holmes High School, Athletic Director Stan Steidel, announced Feb. 18. Nevels has worked as an assistant coach at Holmes High School and Lloyd Memorial High School for the past nine years.

Stetson held a 68-67 lead after Victoria McGowan made a three-pointer with 37 seconds remaining, but Thacker answered with a trey from out front to give Northern Kentucky a 70-68 advantage. McGowan’s long 3-point attempt was off the mark on Stetson’s next possession, and Thacker grabbed the rebound with 10 seconds left. “Our kids kept their composure and did a great job of making big shots, and Stetson is an outstanding team,” Northern Kentucky head coach Dawn Plitzuweit said.

Dump the compassionate rhetoric It seems that Mr. Smith took personal offense at my column. I can understand why. The edited column printed by the Recorder referred to him only as Smith. The column I submitted addressed him as Ted Smith or Mr. Smith. I intended no disrespect. I did intend disagreement. It appears Mr. Smith would have everyone think the “moderate” position is the only position that people who vote Republican can take. Although a Republican I also strongly support the principles of the Tea Party. Exercising political free speech is not only a right but a duty. Does the Republican Party stand only for moderation? How do you moderately: Cut bloated bureaucracy? Enforce border security? Stop pending bankruptcy and uncontrolled spending? Stop sending money and weapons to our enemies? Fix a failed

government education system? Stem the deluge of government regulation? Regain control of the best Jack Shields health care system? ProCOMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST tect our conCOLUMNIST stitution? Just a little bit … ? Senator Goldwater said, “Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.” Expanding government decreases individual liberty. The current administration is expanding its grasp and control over us at a breathtakingly alarming rate. I ask the Republican Party – Will you stand for: A clear contrast to the Democrats? Limited government? Individual liberty? Justice, not politically correct social justice?

Free markets? No corporate subsidies? Defend our constitution as written? Despite the facts, I believe from the voting pattern of American blacks that the Democrat Party has stolen the debate on who actually freed the slaves in a spectacularly dishonest way. Under the pretense of helping blacks and then all the poor, they brought them onto the government plantation with bribes of welfare, food stamps, government housing and Medicaid. They crushed the family unit and created a multi-generational voting bloc for themselves using other peoples’ money. How great is that! In response to Mr. Smith’s history lesson, I want to clarify some historical facts about the Emancipation Proclamation and about Lincoln. The proclamation freed only the slaves in the Confederacy. Slavery remained the law of

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Response to Smith

Ted Smith has cherry picked the glories of Republicans at the expense of Democrats. Let us count the ways in his letter “Clinton not responsible for surplus,” published Feb. 7. In the interests of precious print space let’s keep it to one. Having personally heard Dick Cheney and Barbara Bush at two separate local lectures, I think we could easily go back to President George H. W. Bush to seek answers for 9/11 and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, not President Bill Clinton for a subsequent questionable miss on Osama bin Laden. Both speakers were asked why the first President Bush’s administration did not pursue and kill Saddam Hussein in Desert Storm, the first Gulf War. Both elaborated at length without answering the question. For those of us who still store our No War In Iraq garden signs in our garages, Smith’s description of our “brave troops” is all that rings true in his glowing report of the two wars, Iraq prosecuted under false pretenses by President George W. Bush. They were conceived by war hawks who had evaded service in Vietnam, such as Cheney. Is there anyone who does not understand how horribly they were conducted – Afghanistan dropped far too early and Iraq bungled in ways too numerous to enumerate here? Indeed our brave troops knew. They and their families paid a high price and continue to be denied the adequate care they deserve and desperately need as budgets are tightened. It will be for historians decades from now beyond the reach of contemporary politics to comprehend totally the first decade of the 21st century that was drenched in conflict. It will be complex. I may not have it entirely right but it is for sure that Smith’s facile blame-game will be wrong. Military theorist Karl von Clausewitz, 1780-1831, said that war is a continuation of politics by other means. America has paid dearly in blood, treasure and worldwide reputation. May there now be a more nuanced, cautious willingness to go to war, after all politics and options

Residents of Villa Hills

With the recent article in the February 14 Community Recorder (Villa Hills may look for police department bids) regarding the mayor of Villa Hills seeking bids from other cities and the county for contracting out other cities’ or the county’s police department to replace the Villa Hills Police Department, can there be little doubt now that the mayor is continuing his vendetta against the Villa Hills Police Department? This dates back to when the mayor was arrested on forgery charges in addition to the testimony from the police department during the mayor’s removal hearing. The mayor’s plan all along has been to eliminate the police department as he has purposely kept the department understaffed for the two plus years he has been mayor. If you doubt that the mayor all along had plans to eliminate the police department and that he probably even discussed this with the Kenton County Judge Executive Steve Arlinghaus, then why did the judge executive, when he addressed the Villa Hills Council in January, say: “Who Knows where your police department is going to be by the end of the year.” With three councilpersons apparently favoring with the mayor on eliminating our police department and three apparently against, this would mean a tie vote with the mayor having a vote to break the tie. Just what

do you think the mayor’s vote would then be? If concerned residents of Villa Hills value the Villa Hills Police Department, want to maintain excellent response time by our police department rather than longer response times by another city’s police department when you may need it and want continued visibility on the streets of Villa Hills versus sporadic visibility by another city or the county, then you better stand up and be heard or face the consequences. What can you do? Let the mayor and council know you support our police department by attending council meetings on the third Wednesday of each month, emailing the council and the mayor and calling the city building.

Trash cans ironically creating more trash

Since last July when the city of Independence changed trash pickup, it seems like more trash is left on the streets. The cost hasn’t gone down as promised and now a good many people leave the cans out all week because they’re too big to put away. This was supposed to make the city cleaner and more beautiful but has done just the opposite. Now we need an ordinance to tell people how to put their trash out and put their cans away? City council needs to readdress this if we want a nice clean city in the future. Kevin Henry Independence

the land in five Union states and D.C. until the 13th Amendment was passed in December 1865 – two years later. Lincoln admired Henry Clay of Kentucky. Clay while philosophically opposed to slavery was a slave owner. As a founder of the American Colonization Society, Clay espoused sending freed slaves to Liberia in Africa. Lincoln supported returning former slaves to Africa or sending them to colonize elsewhere. At the fourth Lincoln-Douglas debate on Sept. 18, 1858, Lincoln also said that he thought the black and white races could not live together on terms of social and political equality. He was in favor of having the white race assigned the superior position. Facts are inconvenient, but they should be known. Disagreement and differing ideas are also inconvenient, but the discourse can create a more

informed viewpoint for everyone. Compromisers are losers. Perhaps that’s why we haven’t won any wars lately. We’ve let lawyers compromise our rules of engagement. Perhaps the same is true for national elections. Our candidates and message are watered down. Dems do not compromise their socialist/Marxist agenda. Dump the compassionate, moderate conservative rhetoric. Let Americans know that the best days lie ahead if we remain true to our morals, our families and our values. Celebrate the greatness of capitalism. Celebrate the greatness of a constitutional republic whose rights are God given and whose people cherish the rule of law where free people accomplish great things for themselves and their country.

Sound off on transportation The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s mission is to provide a safe, efficient, environmentally sound and fiscally responsible transportation system. We also appreciate that transportation serves as a catalyst for economic development, thereby enhancing the quality of life for Kentuckians. Providing a well-maintained transportation system requires planning. And that planning requires your help. We need your opinions to make the best plan possible to meet the challenges facing transportation in Kentucky. We are evaluating Kentucky’s transportation system and considering what that system may look like 20 years from now. The cabinet manages more than 27,000 miles of highways, including roughly 20,500 miles of secondary roads, 3,600 miles of primary roads and more than 1,400 interstate and parkway miles. The cabinet also provides direction for 230 licensed airports and heliports. We support programs and projects for rails and river ports, public transit, pedestrian walkways and other trails and bikeways. All modes of transportation are taken into consideration as the cabinet works to update its Long Range Transportation Plan and prioritize transportation needs across the commonwealth. The new long-range plan will be a guide for the cabinet to establish goals, objectives and the strategies to address transportation challenges and opportunities facing Kentuckians over the next two decades. During my years as secretary, the cabinet has been involved in a long list of major transportation projects and initiatives. None of these could have happened without adequate planning. As we look to the future, it’s important to continue efforts to maintain and

improve our transportation system. The LongRange Transportation Plan will serve to Mike Hancock guide those future imCOMMUNITY provement RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST programs. As part of the planning process, KYTC will inventory existing infrastructure conditions for all modes of transportation, determine transit ridership, analyze crash data, project future pavement and bridge conditions and forecast traffic demand on all state-maintained roads. We will also consider population trends, freight movement, economic development, recently completed rural and urban transportation plans, and an analysis of available financial resources to execute the plan. The Transportation Cabinet’s Long Range Plan was written in 2006. It included an extensive effort to survey Kentuckians about how transportation could better serve their needs and improve their quality of life. As we update that document in 2013, we are seeking public input in the process. The “Your Turn” survey will ask those who use our transportation system to provide feedback for our consideration as we identify and prioritize Kentucky’s transportation needs. The “Your Turn” survey is available in electronic and hard copy form. A Spanishlanguage version also is available in hard copy. A link to the survey can be found by visiting www.transportation.ky.gov and clicking on the survey link. We value your views and thank you in advance for helping us with this survey. Mike Hancock is Kentucky Transportation Cabinet secretary.

NEW THOMAS MORE CHAPEL IS FILLING UP

By Libby Cunningham Lcunningham@nky.com

CRESTVIEW HILLS — Eleven bells chime across campus at Thomas More College at 11 a.m. on a chilly Valentine’s Day morning, a sound that more than three months ago wouldn’t have been there. Since Mary, Seat of Wisdom Chapel’s dedication last December Angela Galick, a student originally from Chicago, spends more time in the church on campus. Partly she’s there because her work study is with campus ministry, but that’s not the only reason. “I’m Catholic, sometimes I step in there to pray with God and be alone with God,” she said. “It’s a really nice shape, too because it’s got really pretty windows, it’s very spacious.” The windows in the chapel are seemingly watercolor, depicting religious scenes in an approachable fashion. Galick’s favorite is a glass flame in the middle of the sanctuary. She usually goes to Mass two or three times each week, and she’s noticing a different crowd of people in the pews. “There’s a couple of people that’s my age, not just older people,” she said. “... Usually it’s older people. I didn’t really go to Mass before they built it.” More students in the pews is one of the things Thomas More officials had hoped would happen when breaking ground for the chapel in August 2011. “The chapel is a project that had been on the drawing boards for almost 20 years,” said Sister Margaret Stallmeyer, president of Thomas More. “I actually came here nine years ago and there were two different kinds of artist renderings of what it could look like.” The school got serious about rais-

ing funds for the chapel, a project that cost $4.2 million, about four years ago. Generosity from community members, alumni and donors paid for the chapel that seats around 400. Thomas More kept the chapel’s construction local by commissioning local architects and construction workers. Sister Emmanuel Pieper, of the St. Walburg Monastery in Villa Hills, designed the windows. The altar furniture was built by Thomas More alumnus Joseph Kohrs. “We had this wonderful piece of land right in the heart of campus which is the perfect place for it,” Stallmeyer said. It’s hard to miss the circular chapel building that, since opening in December, is already being rented out for weddings, baptisms and standing-room-only services. “We just got back at 1 p.m. from our Ash Wednesday Mass,” Stallmeyer explained. “And the chapel was literally full, with only standing room.” A full chapel leads to more students being involved in campus ministry, something Director Bob Shearn moved from Pennsylvania to Kentucky to experience. “There’s been a bump in our daily Mass attendance, Sunday Mass attendance,” said Shearn, who came to Thomas More in August. “Sunday Mass has doubled.” Shearn thinks the new chapel has much to do with increasing numbers. “I think part of it’s the novelty and the building is at the center of campus,” he explained. “I really that having a beautiful chapel, beautiful but simple, adds to the success. There’s an ambiance of prayer and presence of God that’s powerful because of all the prayer here.” Visit www.nky.com/CrestviewHills for more community news

The Mary, Seat of Wisdom Chapel cost $4.2 million to complete and Thomas More College used local architects, construction workers and glass makers to complete it. LIBBY CUNNINGHAM/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

Pork tenderloin nice enough for guests Yesterday, granddaughter Eva and I shared a simple country pleasure. We went for a walk down my path that leads to the East Fork River. She wanted to see if the watercress was growing in our little spring-fed pool along the path and if the “Easter grass” (wild onions) was up yet. Well, no Rita watercress Heikenfeld for our RITA’S KITCHEN salad, but the wild onions were growing in little patches along an old stone wall. There was a bonus, too: Wild yellow aconite was poking through layers of fallen leaves and snow all over the hill. What a surprise that was. I think this is the earliest yet that I’ve seen both of these harbingers of spring. The aconite’s neon yellow petals look delicate but are sturdy enough to survive under a layer of snow. The flowers have a history, too. Our friend Ike Leaf, of blessed memory, tossed the first handful of seeds on top of the hill years ago. “When they drop seeds, they’ll tumble down the hill and eventually cover it,” he said. And they have. Check out my blog for a photo of Eva picking wild aconite.

Pesto stuffed pork tenderloin

A recipe that garners fans every time it’s served. My friend, Mary Lee Olinger, an Anderson Township reader, first shared this with me a while back. She had eaten this stuffed pork at the home of her friend,

minced 2 tablespoons pine nuts 2 tablespoons softened butter 2 cups basil leaves, packed 1 ⁄2 cup Parmesan cheese 1 ⁄4 cup Romano cheese (or use all Parmesan) Extra virgin olive oil: start with 3 tablespoons and go from there

Stuff this pork tenderloin with store-bought pesto, or use Rita’s recipe to make your own. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Mary Ann Myers. My latest version includes fresh parsley and Romano cheese. Make sure you use pork tenderloin and not the loin, because the loin won’t cook in the time given. Check a few minutes before it’s done – I roast my pork to 145 or so (see my tip below). Use ready-made pesto or my homemade. Even though Easter is weeks away, you might want to save this recipe for Easter dinner, it’s that good. 2 pounds pork tenderloin, trimmed Ready-made or homemade pesto Romano cheese, grated (or Parmesan) Pine nuts Butcher string Fresh chopped parsley and extra cheese for garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice the tenderloin, lengthwise, not quite all the way through. Spoon pesto until it fills (and overflows a bit) the cavity. Gently tie roast in three places to keep it together. Place on sprayed baking pan. Sprinkle a good amount

of cheese and nuts over roast. Bake until done (145 degrees). In my oven it takes about 25-30 minutes; it may take longer in yours. If the pine nuts start to get too brown, tent meat with foil. Let rest about 10 minutes, tented with foil. After slicing, sprinkle with parsley and more cheese. This feeds four to five people.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Nervous about pork temperature? The USDA says 145 degrees is safe. After resting a few minutes, the temperature will rise a few degrees, enough to kill any harmful bacteria. The meat will be juicy and may look pink.

Rita’s pesto

With a food processor’s motor running, add garlic and nuts. Add everything else and process until smooth. Store in refrigerator up to a week. It may turn a bit dark on the top, but that’s OK. Some people pour a thin layer of oil over the top to prevent this. Store in freezer several months, again pouring a thin layer of oil on top to prevent darkening.

on top of casseroles. “When a recipe says to dot with butter, I always wind up with too much on top,” she says. Solution: Keep a stick of butter in freezer. Peel wrapper back to desired amount. Use a vegetable peeler to shave right amount from frozen butter, letting pieces fall onto food in thin curls. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.

Over-seed struggling lawns now the seeds. Due to competition from weeds and moisture stress, grass seedings made from late spring to mid-summer are seldom successful, so get it done early. The state of Kentucky is not ideally suited to either the warm-season or the cool-season grasses. Because of temperature extremes in summer and winter, developing a good lawn may be a big challenge. Although we have many high-quality Kentucky bluegrass lawns, tall fescue is the best-adapted grass for Northern Kentucky. Problem lawns with

which plants the seed in shallow rows and then covers it with just enough Mike soil (1/8th Klahr to ¼ inch). HORTICULTURE Go back CONCERNS and forth in two or three directions so you don’t just end up with straight rows of grass. You should wait until there is no snow on the ground, and do the seeding when the ground is not frozen, so you can get some loose soil over

Question: How early can I start grass seed for a lawn? I have heard you can just throw grass seed down on top of the snow. Is that true? Answer: Mid-February through late March is normally a great time to start the cool-season grasses from seed, such as the fescues, bluegrass and perennial ryegrass. You will get a better, more uniform stand of grass if you broadcast the seed directly over the ground, rather than on the snow. For small patches, rake the seed in by hand. For over-seeding larger areas, rent a slit-seeder,

shade, poor soil, or heavy traffic should usually be established with tall fescue. Fine (red) fescue and perennial ryegrass also have some limited uses in lawns. Do a soil test (free through your local Northern Kentucky county extension service) to determine the exact lime and fertilizer needs of your lawn. Never add lime unless a soil test reveals the need; otherwise, nutrient uptake is inhibited if the pH becomes too high from excess lime. Seeding of new lawns should be done into loose, prepared soil. Such seeding is usually done with a rotary seeder or the drop-type seed and fertilizer spreader. To determine proper seeding rates, request UK Extension publication, “Selecting the Right Grass for Your Kentucky Lawn (AGR-52).” Mike Klahr is the Boone County extension agent for horticulture.
