Bench honors lost military members Dedication is on POW/MIA Day By Amy Scalf

INDEPENDENCE — Sixty-seven years after the 13 Memorial Oaks were planted outside of Simon Kenton High School, granite benches and memorial pavers honor the service of first responders as well as military personnel lost in battle since World War II.

The engraved granite Prisoner of War/Missing in Action commemorative bench will be dedicated on National POW/MIA Recognition Day with a gathering of students, veterans and community leaders, at 7 a.m. Friday, Sept. 20. According to the Department of Defense Prisoner of War/ Missing Personnel Office, found online at, the date is honored on the third Friday in September “across the country on military installations, ships at sea, state capitols,

schools and veterans’ facilities.” The site also says “more than 88,000 Americans remain missing from World War II, the Korean War, the Cold War and the Vietnam War.” Independence’s American Legion Moon Brothers Post 275 will attend the dedication and will host a POW/MIA table display at Kroger Marketplace on Declaration Drive throughout the day.

INDEPENDENCE — Kenton County parks offer opportunities to explore and play every day, but on Saturday, Sept. 21, park visitors will be able to learn history, take a hike, try kayaking and prowl for owls. Call the Kenton County Parks and Recreation office at 859525-7529 to register for these free programs and to learn about upcoming events. According to Recreation Coordinator Steve Trauger, the outdoor events are planned in connection with the regional Great

Outdoor Weekend, Sept. 28 and 29, and they’re perfect for the cooler weather. “We’re like the unofficial kick-off to the Great Outdoor Weekend,” said Trauger. He said two events will be at Doe Run Lake, 1501 Bullock Pen Road in Covington. Biologist and educator Peggy Kelly will venture around the lake with a limited group of hikers, aged 11 years and older. “The hike is medium-paced to allow time for you to explore some of the natural history of one of our most beautiful NorthSee PARK, Page A2

Saturday event promotes park By Amy Scalf

INDEPENDENCE — Each of Kenton County’s 18 schools were commended on Sept. 4 for their participation in a district-wide program to help reduce student behavior problems by reinforcing positive actions. Kenton County Schools Superintendent Terri Cox-Cruey believes the program, Positive Behavioral Inteventions and Supports, or PBIS, is already changing school culture. “I felt strongly that all schools needed to participate. We had a behavior specialist working at the district level who would get involved once behavior escalated, but with this program, we can reduce the incidents of bad behavior in the first place,” she said. “If you want to change behavior, you have to change instruction, and teach students what’s expected. When students aren’t having behavioral problems, we can do more on an academic and instructional level.”

She said each of the district’s schools has met goals to reduce the number of bad behavior referrals, and they each have banners on display to show their participation. Of Kenton’s 18 schools, 17 were recognized by the Kentucky Center for Instructional Discipline for participating in PBIS during the 2012-2013 school year. Dixie Heights High School was the only school not included, but the school started the program later in the year and is “on track to meet benchmark this year,” according to Jess Dykes, spokeswoman for the Kenton County School District. According to the Kentucky Center for Instructional Discipline, a project of the Kentucky Department of Education, the program started in 2001 “to create a more positive, safe and supportive learning environment for both staff and students.” The center’s mission, online at, is “to train

Schneider said the Memorial Oaks site has two purposes: to pull the community together and to celebrate the memory of folks who still haven’t come home. One of those lost is Bernard Moon, one of the Moon Brothers noted in the American Legion Post name, who was one of the original nine Gold Star Heroes honored with the oaks’ planting in 1946. Schneider said Moon “hadn’t been out of Simon Kenton less than a year when he was lost at sea during the Battle of Leyte Gulf in October 1944.” “We have a very strong tie to these men, these trees and this community. We don’t want people to forget,” he said. “When they were planted, each tree had a plaque with a name and it listed who donated money for the trees. It’s a good thing that they also put plaques in the building, because they’re still there. The ones that were out here are gone. The trees are here to help us remember, but it’s ironic that we forgot.” Schneider said phase two of the memorial includes larger stones marked with the names of military service members, police officers and firefighters. More information, and project updates, can be found on the website, He said part of the project’s focus was to get students involved. “We want the area to be used as an outdoor classroom, and a place for students to meet,” he said. “There are benches here to sit on, but the POW/MIA bench is held sacred and to be looked upon, out of respect for the people who we hope will eventually come

ern Kentucky parks,” said Trauger. He advises hikers to bring water and sunscreen and to wear comfortable shoes. The hike is expected to take around two hours, beginning at 11 a.m. Kelly thinks of Doe Run Lake as a “secluded hideaway” in Kenton County, and gets poetic about the beauty of the season. She said the oak, hickory, ash, maple, walnut, black cherry and basswood trees dominate Kentucky’s forests, which create “a tapestry of reds, golds and yellows as chlorophyll fades from the leaves revealing other hidden pigments.” “Although each season has its own special gifts to enjoy, a walk in a beautiful natural area on a sunny fall afternoon is a delight to all of the senses and a time to be savored during the long winter months,” said Kelly. “As

home.” Members of Simon Kenton’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes will be present at the dedication Friday, and they plan meet there regularly. Senior Nick Parker said FCA members across the nation host “See you at the pole” prayer meetings before school, and that Simon Kenton’s students will do the same. “It’s a time to gather before school to pray about issues and our school, and we will also pray for veterans and people who are serving in the military,” said Maria Fuson, another senior FCA member. Former Simon Kenton student Clint Green of Greenscapes Landscapes has donated his time and talents to the project, partially because of an emotional event that happened on Oct. 9, 1980. “I have a lot of respect for veterans and what they’ve sacrificed for our independence,” said Green, a full-time fireman and lifelong Kenton County resident. “I was a student here when the school exploded, and that’s what made me decide to be a fireman. That’s what inspired me

to help and become a part of it.” Chris Grubbs, another Simon Kenton alumnus, also felt pulled to help. The owner of Chambers and Grubbs Funeral Home said he found a way to use his business skills to add to the project. “I actually walked to school many times and remember seeing those trees and those plaques, and it held significance for me. I was just trying to help,” he said. “I think it’s a great project." While planning for the memorial began in 2008, construction started in 2011. “It’s been a long process but it’s getting there,” said Green. “The thing about Independence, is that having a memorial for firefighters, police officers and veterans, really makes sense here. We have that cooperation. We see it here all the time. The community has been so embracing of this whole concept,” said Schneider. “In our culture, we’ve got heroes and we’ve got celebrities, and we have really mixed them up.”

you walk along the edge of the lake the frogs and toads loudly protest and splash into the water if you disturb them by walking too near. The shimmering surface of the dark lake water is often broken by fish jumping into the air or ducks and geese landing in the safety of these waters. The woods are full of chipmunks and squirrels darting here and there as they gather nuts, and seeds to store for the winter months. Pawpaws and persimmons are ripening for the nighttime raids of raccoons, and spider webs cloak the openings in the brush as spiders catch the bounty of insects that will soon begin to dwindle as the temperature drops.” Those who choose not to hike, can learn about kayaking in the lake from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Trauger said demonstrations and discussions by staff members from Roads, Rivers and Trails will help newcomers check out the water sport. This event is sponsored

by the Kenton County Public Library. “If you’re new to kayaking, this is a great way to have a demonstration, and get a really good idea about what might work for you,” he said. “You’ll be happier on the ride home if you bring shoes that can get wet, a towel, sunscreen, bottle of water and possibly a change of clothes. You know, just in case.” The evening time brings a chance to prowl for owls at MiddletonMills Park, 3415 Mills Road in Covington, beginning at 7:30. Trauger guarantees prowlers will see live owls, and suggests participants dress for a short hike. Critters in the Classroom will present an interactive, after-dark program about owls that make Northern Kentucky their home, and will cover how owls hunt and help maintain a healthy ecosystem.

their community and ultimately the Commonwealth of Kentucky.” So far, 29 Kentucky school districts participate in PBIS. The program, which also includes anti-bullying support, features an agreed-upon and common approach to discipline, positively stated

expectations for students and staff, a rewards system, a systematic approach to addressing misbehavior and procedures to monitor and evaluate the system’s effectiveness regularly and frequently.

Transportation cabinet shares Brent Spence corridor plans By Melissa Stewart

Property owners weigh in on project’s impact By Melissa Stewart


FORT MITCHELL — As plans for the Brent Spence Bridge replacement project are underway, so too are plans for the reconfiguration and update of several miles of highway leading to and from the bridge. At the Aug. 19 Fort Mitchell Council meeting, Robert Hans, executive director of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, gave a presentation on the impact the corridor project could have on the city. The cabinet has been meeting with surrounding communities the last several months discussing the project and spark discussion. “A key component of the project is to keep the communities growing and vibrant,” Hans said. “The project is not just the replacement of a bridge over the Ohio River.” The corridor project focuses on improving safety and efficiency of traffic flow. The Kentucky side of the project includes Interstate 71/75 to the interchange at Dixie Highway (exit 188). Plans are preliminary, Hans said. Possible changes that would im-

According to Hans the close proximity of the Kyles Lane and Dixie Highway interchanges creates safety concerns and lowers the level of traffic flow efficiency. “Our proposal has the Kyles Lane and Dixie

Dan Wachs, 65, of Park Hills, understands the magnitude of the Brent Spence Bridge and corridor projects. “I realize the need for the projects,” he said. “I’m in favor of the bridge.” With his property on a list of those potentially impacted by the corridor project, however, Wachs said he has some concerns. He rents out the building at 502 St. Joseph Lane, Park Hills. The rent he’s paid has served as a supplemental income since he retired from the Kenton County School District. Wachs’ property could potentially be completely acquired for the corridor project that includes the expansion to six lanes, and the linking of Kyles Lane and Dixie Highway interchanges. “I hope to get a fair shake for the property,” Wachs said. “It’s a big part of my income, hopefully I’ll be compensated fairly. There’s also the sentimental value. The property (originally owned by his grandfather) has been a part of my whole life. I had my first job there and it’s grown into a bigger responsibility.”

Noise barriers

This is a free-flowing artery thanks to tPA. It may look like modern art, but it’s a lifesaver. tPA is a drug that breaks up blood clots, keeps arteries flowing and helps limit the damaging effects of a stroke. Today, thousands of neurologists all over the world use tPA, but the discovery happened right here in Cincinnati at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center’s Comprehensive Stroke Center. We continue to pioneer breakthroughs in science so we can perfect the art of saving lives. To learn more, visit or call (866) 941-8264.

According to Hans, anytime there is an improvement project along the interstate, by Federal guidelines, the cabinet must evaluate noise levels. If noise levels increase by a certain amount, some type of noise barrier may be necessary, he said. Although the cabinet can make suggestions, Hans said it is ultimately up to the community to approve or disapprove the construction of noise barriers. “We’re required to have public hearings to discuss effects of noise walls and to determine if community wants a noise

He also worries about his tenants. “I have good tenants who will need to find another place,” he said. According to Stacee Hans,environmentalcoordinator for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, when and if the right-ofway process is necessary, each property would be appraised and assigned a negotiator to work out the details of acquisition. In addition, a relocation agent will be available to any persons dwelling in any structure that is taken with the property, even if

Highway interchanges linked together with a collector-distributor roadway system,” Hans said. The system will be similar to the I-75/ Donaldson Road Interchange. “So, as you’re traveling northbound, signs will (indicate that in order to) exit to Dixie Highway or Kyles Lane, you will exit off the interstate onto this roadway system,” he said. Drivers will have the option of exiting off Dixie Highway or Kyles Lane or continuing north back on to the interstate. The same situation applies to southbound travelers. Wiest said he has concerns about the potential traffic impacts of the proposed roadway system. Currently during rush hour, Wiest pointed out, the Kyles Lane exit is often backed up. With the proposed collectordistributor roadway system southbound travelers wanting to exit off Dixie Highway to Fort Mitchell will be forced to take the roadway system that includes the heavily used Kyles Lane exit. “I want to do some more digging,” he said. “I’m concerned about the congestion at that exit point during rush hour traffic.”

wall and if so what the specifics would look like,” he said. Right now, the cabinet sees the possibility for two noise barriers. The first would be constructed along the east side of the interstate from the beginning of the project, south to Dixie Highway, up to the ramp connection. The second would be on the east side, north of Dixie Highway, to Kyles Lane.

Six lanes

According to Hans, the plan is to expand the interstate to six lanes, both north and south, for a total of 12 lanes. In this option, as vehicles cross the newly constructed bridge (located to the west of the current Brent Spence) they will merge into eight lanes in both directions, for a total of 16 lanes. “This will double the potential capacity,” he said. “About 172,000 vehicles drive the corridor daily; $417 billion in freight cross through.”

Financial impact

The future of the project, however, is completely dependent on funding, which will ultimately be decided at the legislative level. The transportation cabinet has been charged with the giving recommendations.

they are renting. The list of potentially impacted properties, however, Hans said is a worse case scenario. “We’re still working on ways to stay in our existing right-of-way as much as possible,” she said. According to a chart and maps compiled by the cabinet a total of 183 properties stretched along Interstate 71/75 to the interchange at Dixie Highway (exit 188) could be impacted. Fifty-six of those properties, located in Fort Wright, Park Hills and Covington, could be completely acquired, Hans said. Days Inn in Fort Wright is one of those properties

that could be taken. “As far as how we feel about it, it’s a good and bad situation,” Days Inn general manager Bill Bushey said. “The bridge is badly needed by the area. The flip side of that is that we’re sad to know there is a possibility we may have to close our business.” Other properties along the corridor on the cabinet’s maps show slivers possibly needing to be acquired for construction of the project. Fort Wright Councilman Bernie Wessels’ business, Construction and Development Company Inc., could be partially impacted. The building on the property would not be impacted.

Theatre opens with ‘Soldier Come Home’ Community Recorder

Eva Russo, 7, gets ready for the Kenton Elementary Sock Hop. The Hop was a reward for more than 400 academically talented students who mastered their math facts. “It was really exciting to see all of the students who had worked very hard to learn their addition and subtraction facts or their multiplication and division facts dancing and having fun. The students were quite surprised to see their teachers, and principals, doing the Hokey Pokey, Bunny Hop, and YMCA as they danced to the music and had a great time,” said Marge Nabzdyk, Kenton Elementary assistant principal.

SCHOOL NOTES Arnett Elementary honored again

Arnett Elementary in Erlanger recently was recognized as one of the top schools in Kentucky in a survey that measures teaching conditions, student achievement and school safety. It is the second consecutive time that Arnett has received this honor. Arnett is the only elementary school in Northern Kentucky on the top-tier list, and one of only two schools in Northern Kentucky that made the list.

(The other is Connor Middle School.) Kentucky Commissioner of Education Terry Holliday made the announcement after a five-phase review process that resulted in the selection of 49 exemplary schools across the state. The measurement is the Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning (TELL) Survey, a nationally recognized survey used to measure teacher engagement and support, instructional practices, leadership, community engagement, student conduct, facilities and other factors.

Thomas More College’s theater department and The Villa Players will open its season Friday, Sept. 20, with “Solider Come Home,” written by Frank W. Wicks Jr. and directed by Jim Nelson. Productions will be at the Thomas More College Theatre, Crestview Hills, at 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, Sept. 20, 21 and 27, 28, at 2 p.m. and Sunday Sept. 22 and 29. Before the performance, Rabbit Hash String Band & Friends will perform Civil War-era music. Original letters written during the Civil War will also be on display. The play is based on the Civil War letters of Wicks’ great-grandparents, Philip and Mary Pringle, and family members, written between 1859 and 1865 from western Pennsylvania and from major Civil War battle sites. In 1950, the long-forgotten letters were discovered in a shoe box in the attic of the home of Wicks’ grandparents. Wicks’ father,

Frank Wicks Sr., began to transcribe the letters. Frank Wicks Jr., a founding member of the Long Wharf Theater, a graduate of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and a theater professional since 1958, continued the project after his father’s death and then began transforming the letters into the dramatic stage presentation of “Soldier, Come Home.” About 15 of the original letters on which the play is based will be on display in front of the theater, including one that Pringle wrote to her husband on the battlefields, informing him that Lincoln was shot. General admission tickets are $10 and can be purchased online. For more information on the performance, visit or call 859-341-5800. The next production will be “Red” by John Logan and directed by Frank Wicks Nov. 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 and 10. “Red” focuses on abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko.

TMC adds marching band, women’s lacrosse and athletic training. Thomas More College has new programs and activities, including a new academic major in athletic training, the formation of a marching band and the addition of women’s lacrosse. College President Dave Armstrong said each of these new offerings is expected to appeal to a wide variety of current and prospective students, giving them opportunities to expand their skills and continue developing talents. “As Thomas More College continues to expand its reach and relevance in the region, we are seeking to find programs that are mission-centric and appeal to the quality students who thrive here,” Armstrong said. “Our faculty have been working on a launch of athletic training as a major for the last several years because it is founded in the strength of our science programs and there is a growing market for this profession. Initiating a marching band has great appeal because of its relation to the liberal arts, and the students in this region have an intense passion for excellence in this genre. Women’s lacrosse is an emerging sport in the NCAA, and bringing it to Thomas More will enhance the strong tradition of women’s athletic programs here.” Athletic training will be offered as a new major during the current academic year, bringing the total number of ma-

jors offered to 34. Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Thomas More College Brad Bielski said athletic training fits well with the academic offerings already available and the college is currently recruiting for the program. The new marching band is being developed as a co-curricular activity which allows students to pursue their interest in this musical discipline simply for the love of it or as a complement to pursuing an associates degree in music. Women’s lacrosse will begin as a varsity sport during the 2014-15 academic year. According to the most recent research by the Sports Marketing Surveys USA, it is the fastest-growing team sport in the United States. The addition of women’s lacrosse will bring the total number of athletic teams at Thomas More to 19 (10 women and nine men). The team will play in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference, which will officially sponsor a championship in women’s lacrosse during the 2014-15 academic year. Currently, Saint Vincent College, Thiel College, Washington & Jefferson College and Waynesburg University sponsor women’s lacrosse as a varsity sport in the PAC.

COVINGTON — Georgia Childers remembers what it feels like to win a championship. Two years ago, she was a sophomore playing a major role as Holy Cross High School’s volleyball team won the All ‘A’ state championship. Childers and her classmates were not able to recapture the All ‘A’ title in their senior season, but have their sights set on continuing the program’s recent run of success. “This senior class — Georgia Childers, Becca Ruschell, Christa Dorning, Katie Schwietzer, Brandi Trenkamp and Allison Rickels — was an instrumental part in our success over the past three years, including the All ‘A’ state championship,” said head coach Becky Houston. “Their leadership can help our team be successful this year and in future years.” Childers has the most varsity experience out of all the seniors. She provides leadership on and off the court, both vocally and through her actions. “She is doing a phenomenal job at keeping this team on track and pushing herself as well as her teammates,” said Houston. “Georgia is always encouraging her teammates to do everything they can to get better. Georgia leads by example and has an impeccable work ethic. The Indians won 82 matches over the past three seasons, but are off to just an 8-7 start this year. Holy Cross lost the Ninth Region All ‘A’ final to St. Henry, the same team that ended the Indians’ season in the first round of Ninth Region postseason play last year. The Ninth Region is stacked, and the Indians know that they have their work cut out for them. They have shown flashes of their potential; the key is to capture that level of play each and every set. “We need to become more consistent with our serving and passing,” said Houston. “The team has shown some shining moments when our passing is there.” Sophomore Madison Krumpelman has stepped up into the role of setter and has held her own in a senior-dominated lineup. Her continued progression and development will be a key to Holy Cross’s late-season success. A fourth straight 20win season is still within reach, but it will take a strong finish

down the stretch to reach that goal. “This is a strong group of girls. This is team is learning so many things, but most of all

how to work together as a team,” Houston said. “We focus on our small achievements and strive to get better every day.”

If there’s a will, there’s Way at CovCath By Adam Turer


football is in the air, there is a good chance Matthew Way will come down with it. The senior free safety has intercepted five passes through the Colonels’ first four games. Way has started 30 straight games for CovCath and has come up large early in his senior season. “He’s played at a high level for us for three straight years,” said head coach Dave Wirth. After starting every game as a sophomore and junior, Way was counted on to be one of the Colonels’ leaders this year. After a rash of injuries wiped out other key players on CovCath’s defense, the pressure was even more squarely on Way’s shoulders. “We’ve rode Matty so far,” Wirth said. “When kids enter their seniors year, they know that they have to step up. Matty’s gone even beyond that so

far.” Without linebacker Sam Burchell and safety Austin Oberhausen anchoring the defense with him, Way has made the most of his opportunities to be the defense’s No. 1 playmaker. “I expected to have a good senior year,” said Way, “but it’s already been better than I expected. Especially with the injuries we’ve had, I knew I had to step up.” The highlight of the season so far was Way’s three interceptions in CovCath’s Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown victory over Dixie Heights Aug. 30. In addition to the hat trick of picks, Way added eight tackles as the Colonels held on for a 21-13 victory. “He has a really natural ability to find the football, he plays with an extremely high football IQ, and he’s always in position,” said Wirth. “You put those things together, and you can see why he makes so many plays for us.” Way’s play should be

bolstered by the returns of Burchell and Oberhausen to the lineup. A bye week to heal before facing Highlands Sept. 28 should help the Colonels. So far, the team has responded positively to the injuries that have depleted the veteran core of the defense. Way has helped the younger players step up. “We’ve faced more adversity already than we have in past seasons,” Wirth said. “I really like the way our guys have handled it.” The Colonels are young on offense, and Way knows that it is up to him and his unit to carry the Colonels this season. The defense has been the key to the team’s victories,

posting two shutouts so far this season. CovCath allowed 45 points to Cincinnati Moeller, the defending Ohio state champion, in its only loss. “Our defense needs to help out our offense as much as we can,” Way said. Way has done his part to help out, feasting on generally inexperienced quarterbacks. He enjoys being the last line of the Colonels’ defense, and uses his football savvy to put himself in the right place at the right time. “I like to play zone, so I can read the quarterback’s feet and eyes,” Way said. “Most high school quarterbacks can’t really look off safeties.”

Magic ended early for Florence Freedom By Adam Turer

FLORENCE — The magic ended even earlier this year for the Florence Freedom. After advancing to the Frontier League championship series in 2012, the Freedom rallied to again qualify for the postseason in 2013. This year, the Freedom came up empty in the playoffs. Qualifying for the playoffs in two straight seasons was a big accomplishment for the franchise and shows that the program has established consistency and stability under manager Fran Riordan. “I think it was very important for the Freedom to advance to the playoffs for the second straight season,” said Riordan. “Making the playoffs in a 14team league is very difficult and our players and coaching staff really wanted to prove to the league that what we are doing as an organization is calculated and hopefully sustainable for the future.” Four Freedom players earned All-Star recognition and played in the Frontier League All-Star Game in in Washington,

Pa. In an interesting twist, the man who was voted the league’s Most Valuable Player following the regular season did not even join his four teammates as an All-Star. Third baseman Jacob Tanis began the year in the Oakland A’s organization. Once he was released by the big league club, Riordan and the Freedom welcomed him with open arms. “I got great reports from people that I know in the A’s organization and we were looking to fill a hole at third base,” said Riordan. “The fact that he started a little bit slow was probably the reason he didn’t make the mid-season all-star team but what he has meant to us as a player can’t be overstated.” Tanis joined the team

on May 8. He finished the season with a league-high 72 runs batted in. He led the Freedom with 17 home runs. In a testament to the depth of the Freedom’s lineup, Tanis finished sixth on the team in OPS. His play was impressive enough to earn him the Morgan Burkhart Award as the league’s most valuable player, as voted on by the league’s general managers, coaches, and local media in each team’s market. At the midpoint, the Freedom were on the outside of the playoff picture looking in. It was not until the penultimate game of the season, at home against Windy City, that the Freedom clinched their postseason berth. The 6-2 win, in front of the home crowd at University Freedom third baseman Jacob Tanis tags out a runner in a 4-3 lossJuly 14. JAMES WEBER/ COMMUNITY RECORDER


of Cincinnati Medical Center stadium, was the culmination of a second half surge. “We were very consistent the second half, especially after July,” said Riordan. “We struggled a little bit coming out of the break but then we picked up our play when we need-

ed to most.” The Freedom dropped two heartbreakers on the road at Schaumburg to open the postseason. Coming home down 0-2, the Freedom suffered their toughest defeat of the season. After blowing a threerun ninth inning lead, the Freedom’s season ended

with a one-run, ten-inning loss. With a second straight playoff appearance, the league MVP, the first year of a 10-year stadium licensing deal, and an increase in home attendance, 2013 was another successful season for the Florence Freedom .

Meeting time: 7 p.m. first Wednesday of each month Where: Florence Government Center, 8100 Ewing Blvd., Florence (lower level) Contact: President Katie Beagle, 859-466-8998 Description: Community and young professional organization to provide community service and leadership development.

As a parent, I remember when our children first told the truth, realized that the truth was getting them in trouble, and then changed their story. Frankly, when they did that I found it amusing. Their first, quick response was usually closer to the unvarnished truth. Let’s look at another first response – unvarnished truth – this one from the soon to be leader of the free world. Truth: “If I were designing a system from scratch I would probably set up a single-payer (completely government run) system ... Over time it may be that we end up transitioning to such a system ... I don’t want to wait for that perfect system.” Candidate Barack Obama, Campaign Website, 2008. Unlike an adorable child’s candid admission, this one’s not so amusing, at least not to me. But at least it makes clear the desire from some folks in power to move us towards a government run system. Someday we will be able to undo the incorrect things we’ve done. We should then cut right to the chase and debate a government run system. Let the chips fall where they may. Next time, let’s make sure the debate is about health care in the real world.

“I’m here for you, no matter what.” What a statement. What a reality. What a gift. To know that there is someone who will never leave, no matter the circumstances. For many of us, it sounds like a fairytale. A fairytale Julie House that can only COMMUNITY be played out RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST in the movies and one that certainly did not come true for us. We have been left, we have been abandoned, we have been let down, and the pain is unbearable. We may have been left by the spouse that promised never to leave. We may have been abandoned by the job that was supposed to always be there. We may have been let down by the family member who continues to return to a lifestyle of drugs or alcohol. Or we may simply have been let down by life; it just wasn’t supposed to turn out this way. Worst of all, we may feel as though, through all of this we have been let down by the one we’ve always been told would remain steadfast in our lives: God. What are we supposed to do then? We can choose to run and hide, and bury the pain, or we can choose to stay and fight. From my own personal experience, I have never known anyone to be able to outrun God, so the only other option is to fight. But what if I’ve lost the will to fight? Persevere my friend, and choose a different weapon. Those of us that are still struggling are probably not fighting our battles God’s way, which is why we continue to experience defeat. Do you want victory today? Have you run out of options? Then you have nothing to lose, but to try the following: Immerse yourself in his word: We can never truly know God’s plans and promises for our provision with a closed bible. We must begin to read it daily if we want to experience deliverance from our suffering. Pray constantly: 1 Thessalonians 5:17 reminds us that we are to “pray without ceasing.” If we are constantly worried and carry the burdens of our situation, why not take it directly to God. His word reminds us to “Cast all your cares on the Lord for He care for you.” (1 Peter 5:7) Listen for God’s response: As you begin to read and pray, God will use situations and people around you to speak to you. Listen for him. If three different people invite you to church, that may be God’s way of saying, it’s time to go. If the same verse keeps popping up in your mind, heed what it says.

Health care in the real world Part of my day job involves negotiating employee wages and insurance in union bargaining. Over the last two years, my experiences are at odds with Affordable Care Act promises. You might call experiences like this anecdotal. I call them health care in the real world. Promise: “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period.” President Barack Obama, June 15, 2009. Reality: A Greater Cincinnati employer adopted a low-cost insurance plan proposed by its union. In 2012 the insurance carrier declined to renew the plan. No comparable replacement plan was available on the market. Obamacare outlawed the plan. The employees were not able to keep their plan and lost their coverage, with no replacement plan. Promise: “If your employer’s providing you good health insurance, terrific. We’re not going to mess with it.” President Barack Obama, June 15, 2009. Reality: In 2013, a Greater Cincinnati employer offered an affordable health care plan with good coverage to its union employees. The union rejected the plan and told the employer that it wanted higher wage increases instead of health insurance. Why? Under Obamacare, if the employer offered health insurance, the employees could not go to

the government run exchange, where they hope to receive free government subsidies. Rob Hudson When we pay employees to COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST reject covCOLUMNIST erage, we mess with employer insurance. Promise: “This law will cut costs and make coverage more affordable for families and small businesses.” President Barack Obama, June 22, 2010. Reality: An agent and insurance carrier recently represented to a small Greater Cincinnati employer that if it waited to renew health insurance in 2014, if Obamacare becomes fully effective, its premiums would rise 66.8 percent. This would happen even without new catastrophic illnesses in the workforce. Employer coverage does not seem more affordable. The foundational promises of the law are inaccurate. Surely those who understood the law could have foreseen this. If we don’t have flexibility with health plan design, we won’t be able to keep what we have or replace what we lose. If we incentivize people to leave employer plans, we’ll have less employer coverage. And if we load plans up with new costs, they won’t be more affordable.

Play highlights slave journey in 1853 By Stephanie Salmons

PETERSBURG — There was a point in the community’s storied past that the once-booming river town was the biggest in Boone County. Today, however, there’s not much in Petersburg beyond a sleepy downtown, the winding roads that lead there, a stellar view of the Ohio River and a long history whose tales are still being discovered. In 1853, when this particular story begins, land just beyond the current boundaries of Petersburg Cemetery was farm land. According to Boone County Public Library’s local history coordinator Bridget Striker, it was on the rainy night of April 2 that 28 slaves, many believed to be owned by the Parker and Terrill families owners of property in the vicinity, fled. The group left Petersburg and crossed into Indiana with the help of John Fairfield, a white man who helped slaves escape for a price. Striker said she believes the group followed a ridge, visible today from the Petersburg Cemetery, that bisects the bend in the Ohio River where Petersburg is nestled, and traveled past where Ky. 20 now stands to Taylor’s Creek before crossing the river on three skiffs. Their plight is dramatized in a play that will be presented during an upcoming abolitionist living history tour in College Hill, North College Hill and Mount Healthy, Ohio, “Hamilton Avenue Road to Freedom,” from 11

Boone County Public Library’s local history coordinator Bridget Striker points to a ridge that slaves escaped over from Petersburg in 1853. STEPHANIE SALMONS/COMMUNITY RECORDER

a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21. This event is part of College Hill’s year-long bicentennial celebration.

Documentation is hard to find

Striker said she was contacted by the College Hill Historical Society and asked what she knew about the escape “and I went ‘um, what?’” “Apparently there was one reference in one of our reference books to the escape but it’s pretty much buried.” According to the “Encyclopedia of Northern Kentucky,” Boone County, with nearly 40 miles of shoreline, creeks, for-

ests and large plantations dotting the Ohio River, proved nearly impossible to patrol against runaway slaves. “Written histories of Boone County contain little evidence of an active UGRR (underground railroad),” the book reads. “Records from Indiana, Ohio and Michigan, however, reveal a substantial amount of UGRR activity in Boone County from 1838 to 1861. “In fact, so many runaway slaves were handled in and through Boone County that agents of the American AntiSlavery League were placed as ferrymen, fishermen, peddlers and couriers.”

Lawrenceburg, Ind., Striker said, was a “very active point” on the Underground Railroad. To get there, “you have to go through Boone County.” That’s how she initially suspected the county “had stuff going on.” “But again, there’s no documentation just ... little threads you have to start pulling.”

Canadian destination

According to Striker, newspaper accounts talk of Washington Parker, a slave of Harvey Parker, inciting other slaves because he could read and supposedly read Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin to

others. “This was the beginning of the escape,” she said. “The 28 slaves ended up in Canada. It took about three weeks to get them there, but they started here.” John Fairfield was hired to come to the community. The rumor, Striker said, was that he posed as a poultry salesman. “And Petersburg was a good place for it because this was the biggest town in the county at the time,” she said. “It was easy to come and go. It was assumed because he was doing business in Kentucky that he was pro-slavery, he probably gave the impression he was pro-slavery, (but) he then found a way to contact the slaves and managed to organize a group.” According to Striker, wellknown abolitionist Levi Coffin said there were 28 slaves, but it’s thought some of those numbers may be inflated because of propaganda on both sides of the issue. By looking at tax records, however, Striker said they can verify there were at least 10 Parker and Terrill slaves “no longer on the book” between 1853 and 1854, so they’re able to confirm there’s a total of at least 18 or 19 men, women and children who likely escaped. While one skiff sank while crossing the river, the entire group managed to still get across, Striker said. They hid just outside of Cincinnati and someone, presumably Fairfield, went into the city for help to move the group through Ohio, into Michigan and then into Canada, said Striker.

Ryle marching band hosts tournament By Melissa Stewart

UNION — There’s more to a marching band than half-time performances during the high school football season. Sure there’s competition, but there’s also practice. With practice comes hard work and dedication. Long before the first football game of the season, members the Ryle High School Marching Raiders, for example, have left the comfort of a relaxing summer. In the middle of July, 12hour band camp days prepare the band for the season. The Ryle Marching Band is not alone in their quest. Band members across the country are learning the fundamentals of marching. On Saturday, Sept. 21, the Ryle Marching Band invites the public to celebrate this hard work at the Ryle High School Tournament of Bands. “This is a great opportunity for spectators to be entertained by six of the finest high school marching bands in Kentucky and Ohio,” Robert Elliott, Ryle director of bands said. “These outstanding band programs, led by outstanding music educators, have been working diligently since early July on their 2013 competition programs.” The tournament, sponsored by Kona Ice, is sanctioned by the Kentucky Music Educator’s

IF YOU GO The competition is Saturday, Sept. 21. Opening ceremony and preliminaries are at 3 p.m.; finals 7:45 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults; $5 for seniors and students; free for those 5 and younger. Parking is also free. Concession stand will be open. Six bands are competing: Beechwood High School, Grant County High School, Tates Creek High School from Lexington, Madison Central High School from Richmond, Lafayette High School from Lexington, and Milford High School from Ohio.

County High School, Tates Creek High School from Lexington, Madison Central High School from Richmond, Lafayette High School from Lexington, and Milford (Ohio) High School. The marching band preliminary competition begins at 3 p.m. and the finals at 7:45 p.m. Tickets, sold at the gate, cost $10 for adults, $5 for students and seniors, and are free for children five and under. All funds raised from the Ryle Tournament will be used for the school’s music education program including the purchase of instruments, uniform savings, and guest professional clinicians. Monies will also be used to start an artist in residence program for professional musicians from the Greater Cincinnati region to work with student musicians. According to the Journal of

Research in Music Education, students in high-quality school music programs score higher on standardized tests compared to students in schools with deficient music education programs, regardless of the socioeconomic level of the school or school district. On the 2012 SAT, students who participated in music scored an average of 31 points above average in reading, 23 points above average in math, and 31 points above average in writing. “Schools who invest their resource throughout all the school grades by providing music education programs are making an investment into the quality of their high school graduates,” Elliott said. “A national research study showed that schools that have music programs have significantly higher graduation rates than do those without mu-

sic programs; 90.2 percent as compared to 72.9 percent.” Ryle High School Band Boosters president Terry Stickels said, as a band parent, he understands first hand the positive impact that music education has on children. He hopes those in the community will take the time to experience that positive impact for themselves by attending the tournament. “If you have never attended a marching band competition you will be surprised by the excitement of the performances and the level of respect that the marching band students show for one another,” Stickels said. “The students have camaraderie with the other schools and it is more of a sense of competing with, rather than competing against mindset.” Want to continue the conversation?

Rita ushers in baking season with crust, pecan pie For years it was like a gray culinary cloud over my head. I called it pie crust envy. My mom was the first to try to teach me to make a flaky and tender pie crust. “Just don’t overwork the dough, use a light hand,” she told me. At the time I read something in a cookbook that said “work the shortRita ening into the Heikenfeld flour until it’s RITA’S KITCHEN all the size of small peas.” So I tried to do just that. The crust rolled out easily and I baked what I thought was the most beautiful apple pie in the world. I took it to our church kitchen for bingo and I’ll never forget the look on Ruth Haglage’s face as she tried to cut into the crust. She sawed and sawed at that crust and finally broke through. I was so embarrassed. Ruth knew I was a novice pie baker and told me not to worry, that the filling was delicious and the crust was OK. After that disaster, every time I made pie crust by hand I was filled with anxiety. Then I met Perrin Rountree. Perrin is an Anderson Township reader and excellent Southern cook and baker. She worked with me at my cooking school at McAlpin’s. Perrin shared her recipe for pie crust with a secret ingredient. That was years ago and the crust has never let me down. No more pie crust envy!

Perrin Rountree’s no-fail pie crust

You’ll think you’re in cooking class with these detailed instructions, but they are worth following.

ator before using). Roll out on lightly floured surface from center out. I sprinkle a bit of flour on top of the dough so it doesn’t stick to the rolling pin, or you can skip flour and roll it out between wax or parchment paper. Roll into a circle inches wider than pie plate.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Yes, you can use the food processor, too. Just use the pulse button.

Rita’s pecan pie

I use dark corn syrup. Light corn syrup gives a “softer” flavor. Check out my blog for chocolate pecan pie.

Crust for one pie 3 large eggs, beaten until foamy 1 cup sugar 2 tablespoons butter, melted 1 cup corn syrup, dark or light 11⁄2 teaspoons vanilla 1 heaping cup pecans, halved or chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat eggs, sugar, butter, syrup and vanilla well with whisk. Stir in nuts. Pour into crust. Bake 45-55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out fairly clean. Check after 45 minutes. Pie will be puffed and golden and jiggle a bit in the center but that’s OK. Cool a couple of hours before serving.

Can you help?

Rita made her pecan pie using her friend Perrin’s no-fail pie crust.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD. 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 ⁄2 teaspoon baking powder (the secret ingredient) 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 1 cup Crisco shortening, chilled (I use Crisco sticks) 1 ⁄2 cup ice cold water

Whisk together dry ingredients. Cut shortening into 1 ⁄2-inch pieces. Scatter over flour mixture and, using a

fork or pastry blender, cut shortening into flour until mixture resembles coarse crumbs with some large pieces remaining (about the size of peas – yes, it will work!). This is what will give you flakiness. Sprinkle half the cold water over and stir and draw flour with fork from bottom to top, distributing water evenly. Add more water

until dough is moist enough to hold together when you roll a little bit into a ball. I usually use up all the water. Divide in half and shape into two balls. Flatten balls into round disks. I like to refrigerate dough anywhere from 30 minutes to overnight, but that’s not necessary. (You can also freeze the dough for a couple of months, thawing in refriger-

For more than two years, Angie Butcher has blended a variety of flavors with protein-packed nutrition into a recipe for improved health. Now, she has decided to add a dash of free fitness. Butcher runs Embodiment Wellness & Nutrition in the Buttermilk Crossing shopping center, 574 Buttermilk Pike, in the center’s inside corner. The shop is open Mondays through Fridays from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. She started the business after experiencing her own health issues, which she describes as a “debilitating sugar addic-

tion” and a “horrible" carbohydrate-laden diet. Better nutrition changed her life and she wanted others to feel the same transformation. Many of her regular customers come in to the comfortable corner spot

for refreshing Herbalifebased shakes after leaving a local gym, but others haven’t been motivated to work out. “I’m not a trainer, but I am working out. You can come work out with me and get a dollar off your shake. It’s a bonus,” said Butcher. “I work out here and invite people. I just want them to have the incentive to do it.” She said her high-intensity interval training circuit workout of eight different exercises takes “just about a half hour. You’re in and out with a shake in 30 minutes.” Participating in her Fit Club is the only way to purchase a shake on the weekends. The workout schedule is 8:30 a.m. on Saturdays, 6:15 a.m. Mondays, and Monday and Thursday evenings at 6:30. Additional information is available on her Facebook page. Butcher’s Fit Club also offers a free wellness evaluation that includes measuring weight, body fat, muscle and bone mass, basal metabolic rate, and four additional fitness factors. Some of that information is easier to swallow when it’s accompanied by a frosty vanilla almond shake, or maybe strawberry banana, or chocolate raspberry truffle, or any of Butcher’s 30 flavors. “It tastes good and it’s good for you. It’s healthy. It’s pure,” said Jenny Best, a regular customer.

Racing of a different sort returns to Turfway Park Saturday, Sept. 21, when the racetrack hosts its second Polytrack Puppy Party, this year featuring the SAAP Wiener Dog Races. The event benefits the Stray Animal Adoption Program (SAAP), headquartered in Newport, and the Boone County Animal Shelter, based in Burlington. The Polytrack Puppy Party featuring the SAAP Wiener Dog Races is a series of races for dachshunds and other small dog breeds and mixes. Fans can even make $2 wagers on their favorites, though winning bets pay off in prizes, not cash. To add to the fun, the dogs will break from Turfway’s official starting gate. The first of 11 races goes off at 1 p.m. Check-in begins at 11 a.m. This is the first year SAAP has teamed with Turfway for the races. While Turfway introduced its Polytrack Puppy Party last fall, SAAP has held “wiener dog” races at River Downs for the past two years. This year, however, the Cincinnati racetrack is under construction and unavailable for SAAP’s event. “These races are a lot of fun for everybody, and they’re a great way to raise money to help stray and abandoned animals,” said Mary Troilo, Turfway’s national simulcast director and the driving force behind the Northern Kentucky track’s Polytrack Puppy Party. “And where better to hold them than at a real racetrack? We also didn’t want the SAAP races to lose their momentum by having to sit out a year, so joining their efforts with ours was a perfect solution.” “SAAP is excited to partner with Turfway Park,” said Debby Manning, chair of this year’s SAAP Wiener Dog Races. “This will add a

new dimension to the races while helping animals not only in the SAAP and Boone County programs but also in other Tri-State area rescues as well. The wiener dog races are a fun way to raise awareness about many different pet rescues.” The fun-with-pups theme continues all day. From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., local radio personality and author Janeen Coyle will be on hand with her pug, Tank, to sign her new children’s book, “A Pug with a Plan.” At noon, a team from Buckeye Search and Rescue Dogs will demonstrate their training and skills. Animals up for adoption through various agencies also will be on the grounds, ready to choose their new owners. The day’s honored guest is Rex, a dachshund from Owen County, Ky., Friends of Animals. Rex has problems with his spine, but that doesn’t dim his will to run and play. Using a twowheeled cart that stands in for his hind legs, he will be an honorary competitor in the day’s final race. Throughout the day, Frisch’s Big Boy, the Chick-Fil-A cow mascot, and racetrack mascot Turfway Tommy will drop by to join the festivities. Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky radio station ClassX (FM 88.9, 89.1, and 89.3) will provide the day’s classic rock soundtrack. Pet-related vendor booths and raffles will keep fans busy between races. Advance registration for the Polytrack Puppy Party Featuring the SAAP Wiener Dog Races is $10 online at Advance registration ends at noon on Sept.16. Registration is $15 at the door if spots remain. More information is available at or by calling 859391-1234.

Not a new start for Turfway starter Long-time assistant starter Larry McGlasson is now the starter at Turfway Park. McGlasson, 61, replaces Steve Peterman, who was Turfway’s starter for seven years before moving to Calder Race Course in Florida. McGlasson brings 27 years of experience on the starting gate to his new role, but his skill with horses reaches back decades earlier. He started by galloping horses on the family farm, Lakeview Farm in Hebron, Ky. For about 10 years, beginning in the mid-1970s, he trained racehorses, many owned by his father, Galen. As starter, McGlasson is responsible to supervise the gate crew as they load horses into the starting gate before each race and, once satisfied that all horses are standing straight and facing forward, to

spring the magnetic latches on the stalls to start the race. Before every race, he checks a database of comments from starters around the country, looking for reports of troublesome behavior by horses his crew will be handling. Managing 1,100-pound racehorses in the tight confines of a gate stall requires teamwork, horse sense, and nerve. “I’ve always enjoyed the adrenaline of working on the gate, and I’ll miss that,” McGlasson said. “When a horse is fractious and you win – when he gets out safely – that’s really satisfying. It’s just something you have to like to do. “You also have to like and trust the people you work with. You never know when one of them will have to get you out of there. A horse might be striking out and throwing his head, and you’re loaded with him in that little

Larry McGlasson is the new starter at Turfway Park. PROVIDED

cage. The guys on the crew have to click together. Safety depends on it.” During his years on the gate, McGlasson has endured kicks, broken ribs, a fractured sternum, and broken fingers. One horse he was handling reared in the gate, flipped, and land-

ed on its back. McGlasson went down with it, landing on the thrashing animal’s belly. “One guy grabbed my collar and another guy grabbed my belt loop, and they pulled me out,” McGlasson recalled. “This is a ‘we’ process,”

he said. “A starter’s only as good as the guys working with him. An assistant starter’s ability to understand a horse’s body language and react to it instantaneously is crucial to safety and a fair start. And the best riders have God’s gift of a sixth sense – they can anticipate when a horse is about to do something.” A fair start protects not only the horses, jockeys, and gate crew but also the investment of time and money by the horses’ owners and trainers and the wagering public. With so much riding on the split second the gate opens, the starter also works during training hours to certify that horses are able to stand quietly in the gate while the field is loaded and break cleanly when the doors open. Until a horse earns its “gate card,” it is not allowed to race.

Dinner helps volunteers Scarf It Up Over the last 10 years Scarf it Up For Those In Need has provided more than 55,000 handmade scarves to those in need in the area. The organization’s big fundraiser will be the annual Hand Bag event beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, at Receptions on Donaldson Highway in Erlanger. Tickets are $25. For tickets contact Tammy Simpson, executive direc-

tor of Scarf It Up For Those In Need, at 859-8024881. This year Scarf It Up is in need of raising an extra $5,000 to purchase a 1,000 pairs of ski gloves to go with their handmade scarves for the annual Christmas Day dinner for the homeless. Scarf It Up volunteers were shocked to find out that although their magic stretch gloves would fit they were told that be-

cause they have to stretch so much they open up the fibers and do not provide much warmth. So they knew that they needed to provide something better. Currently Scarf It Up purchases magic stretch gloves at a wholesale price of 50 cents a pair but ski gloves are purchased at $5 a pair at the wholesale price. Scarf It Up has been in operation since 2003, starting with six women

making 500 scarves and delivering them to three agencies who serve the poor and needy. In 2012, hundreds of volunteers helped make 9,112 handmade scarves and Scarf It Up raised enough funds to purchase hats and gloves to go with each one and distributed them to 64 agencies that serve the poor and needy in Boone, Kenton, Campbell, Grant, Pendleton, Butler and Hamilton, Ohio, counties.

The group’s mission is to provide a handmade scarf and hats and gloves to as many of those in need as possible. Why handmade? Lots of time and care goes into it each handmade scarf. It is their hope that the men, women and children who receive them will feel this warmth and love. The program runs from September to February. Scarf It Up volunteers also speak to organizations

McGlasson supervises schooling in the gate at Turfway Tuesday through Saturday from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. – about 30 horses per day on average. Although horses of any age may school on any given day, McGlasson especially noted the teamwork required to gate train young horses. “I enjoy working with the babies, teaching them their manners,” he said. “You have to reward them when they’re good and let them know when they’re not. You have to be able to read the difference between fear and attitude.” McGlasson operates his family’s business, Northern Kentucky Lakeview Farm, a thriving truck farm now in its fourth generation. His wife, Maggy, is a veterinarian who specializes in dressage horses and owns Lipazzaners. The couple has 19-year-old twins, Michael and Molly.

year round about the need in the area and instructional classes are taught by Scarf It Up volunteers monthly at the Kenton County Library, Erlanger and Durr branches, on how to make scarves. Scarves are gathered from collection barrels and taken to a storage space where volunteers sort and box according to agencies request and deliver during December, January and February.

Galls attacking local oaks Fall brings sweet potatoes Question: My pin oak tree has some strange growths on the leaves and twigs. One type is round, one inch in diameter, and either tan in color, or sometimes red and green like a speckled cherry tomato. The other growth is like a solid, small golf ball with small holes and small spikes coming out of it. What is the cause of these strange balls on my tree, and will they hurt the tree? Answer: The strange growths on your oak tree are called galls. Galls are irregular plant growths formed from plant tissues, which are stimulated by the reaction between plant hormones and powerful growthregulating chemicals produced by some insects or mites. Certain galls may occur on leaves, bark, flowers, buds, acorns, or roots. Leaf and twig galls are most noticeable. The inhabitant (a small insect) gains its nutrients from the inner gall tissue. Galls also provide some protection from natural enemies and insecticide sprays. Important details of the life cycles of many gallmakers are not known, so specific recommendations to time control measures most effectively are not available. Generally, initiation of leaf galls occurs around “bud break” or as new leaves begin to unfold in

the spring. The tomatolike galls you describe are called oak apple galls. Mike These are Klahr large (1- to HORTICULTURE 2-inch CONCERNS diameter) rounded growths that are filled with a spongy mass. A single wasp larva is located in a hard seed-like cell in the center. Galls are usually found on the petioles or midribs of leaves. They will eventually dry to a brown, paper thin wall. Removing and destroying galls before they dry and before wasps emerge from a tiny hole may help to reduce the infestation. Leaf galls rarely affect tree health, so chemical control is rarely justified. The woody gall you describe as a spiny golf ball is a more serious problem. It is called the horned oak gall. A similar gall without the horns or spikes is called the gouty oak gall. Twig and stem galls, such as the gouty oak gall and horned oak gall, are solid, woody masses that can girdle branches (killing them at the tips) or make them droop from the sheer weight of the often numerous, heavy growths. The galls can grow to more than 2 inches in diameter.

Fall is approaching and Kentucky sweet potatoes are in season. Two varieties of sweet potatoes are commonly grown in Kentucky. The pale sweet potato has a light yellow skin. Its pale yellow flesh is dry and crumbly. The darker variety has dark skin and orange sweet flesh that cooks ups moist. Choose sweet potatoes with smooth, unbruised skins. Store them unwrapped in a cook, dry, dark place with good ventilation. Do not store them in the refrigerator. Scrub them just prior to preparing them for cooking. To bake sweet potatoes, pierce the skin in several places so they do not explode from steam build up while cooking. Baked them uncovered in a 375 degree F oven for 45 to 60 minutes or until they are soft when squeezed. If microwaving, place the cleaned, pierced potato on a paper towel. Microwave one potato on high for 4 to 5 minutes. Sweet potatoes may be boiled in their skin until tender when pierced. The skin is easily removed after being cooked. They may also be peeled and boiled. Mashed sweet potatoes are a versatile side dish. Sweet potatoes are a good source of fiber, vitamin A and vitamin C. They are a colorful and healthful side dish for many entrees.

One female wasp can emerge from each horn. Generally, insecticidal control is not satisfactory because the wasps are physically protected within the galls. Correctly timing chemical applications to provide effective preventive control is difficult. Where practical, pruning and removal of infested twigs may help to reduce the problem on lightly-infested trees. However, pruning is impractical if large trees are heavily infested. A commercial arborist may be able to provide assistance with valuable plantings. Mike Klahr is the Boone County extension agent for horticulture.
