INDEPENDENCE — Gunshots, screams and bodies filled the hallways at Simon Kenton High School Sept. 24, as the members of the Independence Citizens Police Academy portrayed the role of police responders in a simulated active school shooter scenario. The Academy is a free nineweek course filled with handson lessons to help familiarize Independence residents with the operation, regulations and personnel of the Independence Police Department. “Before Columbine, police were trained to go in quietly and get everyone out of the building, and, then, focus on the shooters. From those kinds of tragedies, we’ve learned it saves lives to en-

gage the shooters quickly. Be loud, make noise, and when you see the bad guys, take them out,” said Officer James Welsh. Armed with protective eye wear and air-powered guns that shoot plastic pellets, class members broke into groups of four or five to simulate the “quad formation,” where a member of each group faces forward, backward and both sides, with a central directing navigator. Students took turns portraying shooters and victims as the academy members

did their best to end the situation. Lt. Scott Schultz, a program coordinator and Independence Police officer, said the scenario is designed to “get them thinking on their feet,” much like he said a first responder would be doing in that situation. “School shootings are a little bit more important because we know nobody in here has a gun to defend themselves,” said Schultz. “We try to get here as quick as we can to defend them and that’s what our job truly is.” Other academy lessons include finding fingerprints and latent evidence, learning about local drug issues and touring the Kenton County Detention Center.

INDEPENDENCE — Sometimes beloved school traditions get turned on their tails. At White’s Tower Elementary each year, students plunk coins and dollars into jars marked with teachers’ names, and the teachers who receive the most money in their jars win a contest to kiss a pig. But when Stinkerbell the pig caught a case of the swine flu, her buddy Bobby the billy goat stepped up to take her place. “We were all really kind of shocked,” said Karen Murray, PTA member. “Our teachers did a great job switching gears.” Eric Hendrix, a teacher new to the school this year, received the highest amount of donations in his jar, more than $60 of the overall total of $413.69. The money raised in the contest, and the proceeds from the fall festival, will be used to provide technology for the school. “It was all for a good cause and we had fun,” said Hendrix. Other lucky goat-smoochers included Emily Bernard, Greg Dyk, Debbi Edwards and Autumn Hendrickson.

“Two years ago, we used the money to renovate a playground, but we really feel like we need to focus on technology,” said Murray. “It’s important for our students to have iPads, laptop computers and smart boards to work with, so they’re familiar with the technology as they move on to other schools.”

Bridge closed until repairs can be made By Stephanie Salmons

A Boone County bridge closed suddenly and will remain closed for a while. Boone County Administrator Jeff Earlywine told county commissioners Oct.1that the county were notified late in September of the continued deterioration of the Richardson Road bridge. Located near the intersection of Richardson Road and U.S. 25, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet recommended the bridge be immediately closed. According to information from the transportation cabinet District 6, a bridge inspection showed some deterioration of

emergency bridge replacement funds that are state funds.” Those funds wouldn’t be used for replacement, but rather repairs to get the bridge reopened with the weight restriction, he said. While “safety is paramount,” Earlywine said the county doesn’t want to use more money than is necessary because the bridge is slated for replacement. “Because the bridge is going to be replaced, we want to spend everything that we need to and nothing more to get the bridge back in service,” he said.

tion, Earlywine said Richardson Road is on a list of county roads that are part of a pending transfer agreement with the state, in which the state would take responsibility for Aero Parkway and Richardson Road and the county in turn would accept some state roads. However, before completing the transfer, the county was required to identify a funding source “in the future to replace the bridge,” he said. According to Earlywine, the transportation cabinet has identified Richardson Road as the

“No. 1 priority bridge in Northern Kentucky” to be considered for replacement. There are efforts to get the project included in the six-year road plan which is adopted by the state, he said. “And if we’re able to do that, that might be a triggering mechanism to move forward with the transfer of state roads and county roads,” he said. Earlywine said the county will talk with the state to understand what the areas of concern are and then will ask the engineer to develop a recommendation on stabilizing the bridge and a cost estimate. Once that information is available, the county can submit its applica-

tion for emergency bridge replacement funds. While the county will “do our best to expedite” the process and get the road re-opened, Earlywine said there is not a timeline in place. “It has been closed. We’re on it. We’ll make it a priority, but it’s going to take a little bit of time to come up with a plan and get the bid out and get the work completed,” he told commissioners. Motorists can detour using U.S. 25 to Industrial Road. Those coming from Kenton County can take Turkeyfoot Road to Industrial Road. Want to continue the conversation? Tweet at @SSalmonsNKY

Webster why it’s important to volunteer with the Girl Scouts and she has one firm answer – “The girls.” According to Webster, center director for the Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road Council, without the volunteers “we cannot reach or service all the girls who would like to join.” So, the Licking Valley Cluster – including Boone, Campbell, and Kenton counties – are looking for volunteers. Within this cluster alone, Webster said, there is the potential for more than 39,000 girls – ages 5 to 17 – to join. “We are only able to serve approximately 5,000 through traditional

Arnett ranked as top school in state

State Sen. Damon Thayer (R-17) speaks to the Taylor Mill Elementary assembly. THANKS TO TRINA EDWARDS



Sen. Damon Thayer (R-17) spoke to the fourth- and fifth-grade students of Taylor Mill Elementary about the Constitution for Constitution Day, Tuesday, Sept. 17.

Arnett Elementary has been 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.

Head Start gets grant from Toyota The Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission received a $7,500 grant from Toyota Engineering and Manufacturing, North America to support its Head Start centers in Boone, Kenton, and Campbell counties. The grant will be used to offset costs left by the money lost due to the sequestration. “This money,” says Head Start Director Laurie Wolsing, “will be used to foster the natural curiosity and desire to learn that all young people have. The development of literacy skills and a love of education will resonate throughout the child’s life, beginning now with Head Start and continuing into their school ca-

“From my perspective, being identified again as one of the 49 TELL Honorable Mention schools says a great deal about the positive and safe school culture we have at Arnett Elementary,” said Matthew Engel, principal of Arnett Elementary. “Our students enjoy coming to school, our teachers enjoying working here, and as a result, our kids have a better opportunity to be successful academically. Many of our students are faced with obstacles in their lives that are beyond their control. This school has a great group of teachers that are willing to work together to help these children overcome those obstacles.” The selection of Arnett Elementary as one of the exemplary schools defines it as a “best practice” model for other schools. It also placed Arnett in consideration for the Winners Circle honor. Arnett Elementary serves about 370 children in preschool through fifth grade; the school is at 3552 Kimberly Drive.

reer.” The impact is not only a benefit to the children says Executive Director Florence Tandy. “These young learners at our Head Start centers will go to school more prepared for the expectations of the schools they attend. The state is adopting the common core standards, so the readiness of every student to learn matters not just to their family but also to the district as a whole.” Tandy says that as improved school districts attract young families into the area the entire region will benefit. Toyota Engineering and Manufacturing employs over 3,000 people and has its headquarters in Erlanger.

Villa Madonna Academy seniors Gabrielle Notorgiacomo and Nicole Zatorski were named National Merit Semifinalists. They are part of the 16,000 semifinalists across the nation. Approximately 1.5 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2014 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2013 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. The nationwide pool of semifinalists, which represents fewer than 1-percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state. Notorgiacomo and Zatorski will now compete to become Finalists based upon their academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, and honors and awards received.

HC golf coach watches daughter’s trek to state By Adam Turer

Pioneer QB sets record with 7 TDs By James Weber

And Gannett News Services

INDEPENDENCE — The Simon Kenton High School football team kept rolling with a 5535 win over Campbell County Oct. 4. SK is 7-0 and 2-0 in district play in the local 6A district. Simon Kenton quarterback Brenan Kuntz threw a schoolrecord seven touchdown passes, three to Logan Winkler, and added a rushing score, accounting for all of the Pioneers’ scoring. He totaled 447 yards from scrimmage, finishing 20 of 27 passing for 367 yards and adding 80 yards on the ground with one TD. For the season Kuntz has passed for 1,539 yards, 19 touchdowns and only one interception and rushed for 558 yards and six TDs. “The only interception he has thrown was at halftime of the Collins games (in the season opener) and he just keeps getting better week by week,” said SK head coach Jeff Marksberry. “His decision making and confidence are off the charts right now. If I could draft any quarterback in the state I’d take him. He hasn’t even scratched the surface of

his athletic ability either. He has tremendous upside.” Simon Kenton scored three first-quarter touchdowns, and led 21-0 with 1:07 left in the opening quarter. The Pioneers added a second-quarter touchdown, answering the Camels’ lone score of the half, for a 28-7 halftime lead. Simon Kenton made it 34-7 with a nine-play, 81-yard thirdquarter drive, scoring on

Kuntz’s 11-yard pass to Lars McEntyre. Winkler had three touchdowns for the second straight week, part of a monster game where he finished with seven catches for 157 yards. McEntyre had four grabs for 74 yards. Evan Meenach, Travis Bryson and Grant Vercheak all had scoring receptions. Grant Wassom did not find the endzone but was a top target all night, finishing with five catches for 98 yards. Wassom is the leading receiver for the season with 32 catches for 513 yards and five scores. Winkler has 31 grabs for 452 yards and the six TDs. On defense, Mike Krallman had an interception and Chris Hicks, a fumble recovery. Barry Deaton led in tackling with 10. SK is favored to go 8-0 after a trip to Boone County High School 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11. Boone is 0-7, outscored by an average of 33-9. If the Pioneers take care of business against the Rebels, they would host Dixie Heights Oct. 18 in a game that will likely be for the district title.

COVINGTON — Coaching your own child has its pros and cons. Sometimes, you wish you could sit back and cheer, enjoying the game as a parent. Other times, you have to deal with the anxiety and exude the discipline and focus that comes with coaching. Occasionally, it all comes together. Holy Cross girls’ golf coach Chris Armbrecht is enjoying the best of both worlds right now. His daughter, Indians junior Emily Armbrecht, has reached her goal of qualifying for the state tournament. Coaching Emily has not been much of a challenge for Chris. “She is very coachable,” said Chris. “She listens and we strategize together.” That strategizing rose to a new level following last season. Emily finished in the top 10 in the region and narrowly missed qualifying for the state tournament. The goal entering 2013 was clear. “This year, we hoped that state would be where we ended up,” Chris said. “We got close last year, and Emily really worked hard at it this year.” Emily won the Northern Kentucky Athletic Conference Division II individual championship convincingly. On Sept. 23 at Kenton County Pioneer Golf Course, Armbrecht finished five strokes better than Highlands’ Alexis Begnoche, shooting an impressive 79. She bested that score by shooting a 78 at the Region 6 tournament on Oct. 1. “That was the best I’ve seen her play,” said Chris. “She kept her cool the entire round.” The score was low enough

to qualify as the third-lowest individual whose team did not advance to state. Armbrecht was nearly joined by her teammates. The Indians shot a 366, 13 strokes behind secondplace Grant County. The top two teams, and top four individuals not from those teams, advanced to state. As well as Emily was playing, her father and coach had to watch from a distance. “I didn’t want to make her nervous, but at the same time I wanted to watch as a dad,” said Chris. “You’re kind of in a nowin situation.” The sacrifices Chris had to make as a father benefited the team. He spent many rounds coaching up the younger Indians golfers. Emily’ maturity allowed her to make corrections as needed, while her father helped her less experienced teammates develop. “I spent a lot of time on the course with our freshman during the season,” said Chris. “I didn’t get to see Emily as much as I would have liked to.” The improvements that Emily made to her game began almost as soon as last season ended. After a top-10 finish in the region her sophomore year, she was determined to go one round farther this year. “Her biggest improvements were in her short game and her putting,” Chris said. “She was able to eliminate a lot of three-putts and ducked chips.” Coming off of her best round, Emily will play a practice round in Bowling Green with Ryle junior Nadine Innes. Innes is traveling to the state tournament for the third straight year. The state tournament begins on Oct. 11 at Bowling Green Country Club. Emily Armbrecht of Holy Cross watches her drive on hole 1 in the 2012 regionals. FILE PHOTO

The Covington Catholic High School golf team has drawn motivation from rival Ryle High School in the past. That has been the case again this year, and the Colonels were set to have extra motivation as they entered the KHSAA state tournament Oct. 9 after Recorder print deadlines. The past three seasons, Cov Cath has defeated Ryle to win the Region 7 championship only to watch the Raiders outperform them in the state tournament. Last week, Ryle won the 2013 regional by one shot over Cov Cath, and the Colonels were hoping to turn the tables. “The guys are playing very confidently right now,” said Cov Cath head coach Robb Schneeman. “We wanted to win region but they didn’t feel it was the end of the world losing by one.” The Colonels took places 4-7 in the individual standings at the Region 7 tournament Sept. 30, but it wasn’t enough for their fourth consecutive regional title, as the Colonels shot 308 and lost to Ryle by one shot. Last year, Ryle was fourth in the state tourney and Cov Cath did not finish in the top 12 after one round, missing the cut to play round two. “The three seniors want to go out on a strong note, where they’re making the cut and going further than any team of ours has gone in the past,” Schneeman said. “They were motivated with Ryle’s finish last year. They’re all good friends with them. We’ve had a tremendous season. These guys have had some great finishes, high placements in tournaments.” At the regional, Cov Cath junior Paul Huber led the way with a 76 to take fourth place overall for Cov Cath. Seniors Timmy Fritz and Merik Berling shot 77, and freshman Griffin Flesch 78. Senior Bret Bauereis posted an 83 but was not counted in

the team score. “That’s been the key this year,” Schneeman said. “We have four guys who can go very low and one who won’t go very high. We have strength everywhere as far as picking each other up. Brett didn’t have a great day and Griffin stepped it up.” Notre Dame won the Region 6 girls tourney with 332, easily defeating Grant County by 21 shots. Jill Edgington was second overall with a 71. Josie Hammon shot 82, Ali Maier 89, Erin Durstock 90 and Amy Pugliano 94. Notre Dame had finished second to Owen County last season and the Pandas were determined to get the title back this year. “We refocused and that’s the first thing the girls said is they wanted to gel more as a team and they did that,” said NDA

does not fall to one entity – it’s our entire community that collaboratively contributes to the process of focusing on Kathlyn the whole Burkhardt child. Through COMMUNITY partnerships, RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST we are able to level the playing field for those children who may have obstacles to overcome. In meeting the needs of our students, and recognizing our “whatever it takes approach,” we utilize community partnerships to maximize learning, and recognize these partnerships are a vital component of the success of our students. We further recognize that the learning journey starts the moment a child is born and continues throughout a lifetime. With this thought in mind, we offer Toyota bornlearning Academies for parents of infants and preschoolers and our own ErlangerElsmere Toddler School, a weekly workshop provided to parents whose children are 12-36 months of age. Because students spend more hours outside of school than within school, it’s important to engage students beyond the standard school day.

Our partnerships provide after-school programs such as the Boys and Girls Club, the Brighton Center’s Youth Leadership Development, YMCA, and Children Inc. We also partner with the cities of Erlanger and Elsmere, our police departments, our fire departments, and our local library to provide after-school programs, School Resource Officers and volunteers. The learning journey continues with quality instruction which is student-centered and integrates technology, handson learning, higher level thinking and problem solving much like the “Literacy Design Collaborative” or the “Math Design Collaborative,” each provided by the Gates Foundation that are implemented in our schools and many others across the nation. As students individually travel down the path of success, schools provide intervention and acceleration opportunities throughout the school day. These include research-based strategies, evidence-based counseling, credit recovery, career certifications, and dual-credit opportunities which include community partnerships with the Northern Kentucky Education Council as well as post-secondary institutions like Gateway, Thomas More College, and Northern Kentucky Univer-

U.S. House – where have you been With our partial government shutdown, it’s very uncomfortable because of the context, with the House deciding not to fund Obamacare. However, no doubt, the government buck starts in the House of Representatives, the people’s house. The “Origination Clause” in Article 1 of the United States Constitution says so: “All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives ...” What does this really mean? You can’t get any closer to original intent than the words of James Madison, the man who drafted much of the Constitution. He touted the “Origination Clause” as being crucial to reigning in big government. He wrote, in Federalist 58: “The house of representatives can not only refuse, but they alone can propose the supplies requisite for the support of government. They in a word hold the purse; that powerful instrument by which we behold ... and finally reducing, as far as it seems to have wished, all the overgrown prerogatives of the other branches of the government. This power over the purse may in fact be regarded as the most complete and effectual weapon with which any constitution can arm the immediate representatives of the people ...” To be clear, here’s how it works. The House sets the

spending. Some spending, like social security, is mandatory. Other spending, like Obamacare, is Rob Hudson not. If the Senate and COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST the President COLUMNIST don’t agree, won’t compromise and won’t negotiate, the Senate and President (regardless of political party) have chosen to shut down the government. This is fact, not opinion. Whether you agree or disagree with the House’s decision, it had every right to address Obamacare spending. The law will cost well over a trillion dollars in the next decade. With the Origination Clause and founding father Madison’s words in mind, I ask, United States House, where have you been most of my life? United States House, our children will be paying back your debt of nearly $17 trillion their entire lifetimes. This matters because, among other reasons, you now spend twice as much on interest as you do investing in infrastructure which our children will need. If you won’t listen to me, maybe you will listen to Thomas Jefferson, “It is incumbent for every generation to pay its debts as it goes.” What silver lining can

Whatever it takes – a community endeavor

With the recent release of the Kentucky School Report Cards, the Erlanger-Elsmere School District has reason for celebration! Lloyd Memorial High School leapfrogged to “Distinguished” status and now ranks in the top 10 percent of all high schools in Kentucky. Tichenor Middle School has achieved a “High Progress” ranking, placing it in the top 10 percent of middle schools in Kentucky in terms of its improvement. Because the Erlanger-Elsmere School District met each of its state goals, the district has been designated a “Progressing School District.” We are proud of our teachers and staff and thankful for the support of our school board and the entire community, which has shown time and again how deeply it cares for the children of Erlanger and Elsmere. Yet, as we celebrate, our data helps us recognize that we have much room for continued improvement. We are committed to “whatever it takes” to enrich the lives of each one of our students as we prepare students to become college and career ready. How is this accomplished and what does it take to enrich every child in the ErlangerElsmere schools? The responsibility for ensuring a successful journey


come from a painful, partial shutdown? “A generous parent would have said, if there must be trouble, let it be in my day, so that my child may have peace.” Thomas Paine, “Common Sense.” Aren’t we morally obliged to accept trouble in our day, including temporary, partial shutdowns, if that’s what it takes to stop incurring debt so that our children’s children may have a fresh start? To our next generations, we owe you an apology. It wasn’t our money to spend, but we Baby Boomers kept electing Houses which did it anyway. At the highest levels of society, we still celebrate what we can get from the federal government. But it’s really coming from you. Sorry – we wanted it all, we wanted it now, and we’ve been willing to name call to get it. As a voting adult, I didn’t fully grasp the House’s Constitutional duty to take a stand, nor did I understand government shutdowns. Even now, I remain uncomfortable and conflicted with this particular shutdown. I used to love telling our children “ignorance is no excuse.” I’m afraid that this embarrassing shoe is now on my foot.

sity. Creative partnerships and piloting programs, such as the “Champions Program” sponsored by the DCCH Center for Children and Families, allow us to provide support to entire families when needed. We offer additional mental health services, and partner with HealthPoint to provide a dental clinic and a school-based health clinic to keep students in school. At the elementary levels, we offer mentoring, the Boys and Girls Club, “One-toOne Reading” and many other supports. The Erlanger-Elsmere School District provides daily high-quality instruction. We teach children, and they are our focus. While schools cannot be solely responsible for preparing our children for the future, we can partner as community hubs to provide wraparound resources for our students and families. This approach takes a great deal of work on all of our parts. Schools need communities and communities need schools. As long as there are children who look to us to help them grow and learn, there will always be more work to be done and more resources will always be needed if we truly want ALL students to be successful. Kathlyn Burkhardt is superintendent of Erlanger-Elsmere School District.

It is always fun to read an opinion piece as academic and philosophy101airtight as “America’s new morality: stealing from taxpayer,” by Tom Wurtz, Oct. 3. Now the true philosophical part: Mr. Wurtz should offer a plan to rectify the crime, in his words, that has benefited the libraries at the expense of the taxpayers because the law was not followed to his satisfaction. Be mindful that libraries are people, patrons receiving services by professional and other staff. They are anything but abstract like a college course, and people who use libraries are also taxpayers. From this and his past writing, he seems to suggest nearly closing the libraries. I say change the law to save treasured libraries here and around Kentucky. Not academic enough? The real work begins serving people with many different library services which have expanded and evolved over time. It is far greater than simply buying one’s books at a local bookstore. For the record I can afford that and I use no other library services beside borrowing books. It is “to promote the common welfare,” as stated in the U.S. Constitution, for all Kentucky residents about which I am concerned. In the good, old days libraries were all private. Those days were old, not good. Nancy Rowles Covington

I’m done with looking back

Pardon the incorrect grammar, but to hear the phrase, “I’m done with that,” one may think, “I’m done with that attitude, the dead-end job, the deteriorating marriage, that persistent bad mood, that messy room, the constant bickering.” But how about looking back? When will you be “done looking back?” Looking back on the childhood filled with abuse and neglect? Looking back on what could’ve or should’ve been? Or, looking back on all the good times and agonizing over “how things used to be?” When will you be done looking back on all the things you wish you would have done, or didn’t do? When will you be done looking back on all the things you wish you would have said? Or didn’t say? That’s the kind of looking back I want to be “done with.” The Christian pop group, Newsboys, says it best: “I’m not looking back; I’m done with that I wanna live with abandon Give you all that I am Every part of my heart, Jesus I place in your hands I wanna live with abandon” It’s not scripture, but it sure is sound advice. And God calls us to a life of abandon as well. Paul reminds us in Hebrews, “Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is

set before us.” (Hebrews 12:1) How can you “lay aside every weight,” and “live with abandon for Jesus?” Julie House Will you answer God’s COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST call to reach COLUMNIST out and finally say “yes” to adopt a child who desperately needs a loving home? Will you put down the bottle and pick up the bible just for tonight? Will you shut out the lies of the world and open your ears and listen to the promises of your savior? Will you stop and look the homeless person in the eye instead of just driving on by? Will you close the laptop, put your child up in your lap (no matter how old they are) and ask them how their day was? Take a step toward living in abandon today, give Jesus all that you are. Place every part of your heart into his hands, and watch him lead and guide your every step. As his word so beautifully puts it, “Call to me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things which you do not know.” (Jeremiah 33:3) By the way, my first step toward living in abandon?

By Melissa Stewart

FLORENCE — Family, friends and fans of country music legend Kenny Price gathered Sept. 14 at the U.S. 42 White Castle to honor the Boone County native as a portion of U.S. 42 was dedicated in his name. Folks and honored guests – including Nick Clooney, Colleen Sharp Murray and Dick Murgatroyd – were welcomed to the tune of Price’s hits “Sheriff of Boone County” and “Walking on New Grass.” Price’s son, Kenny, said the family is honored to have a section of U.S. 42 – from I-75 to Gunpowder Road – is now named the Kenny Price Memorial Highway. “When each of us were born, we were created by God to bring honor to our family, our city and our state,” Price said. “For the 56 years of my dad’s life people around him knew he loved his family and his city of Florence. He was proud to say ‘I’m from Kentucky.’ With the dedication of this stretch of road, Kentucky is saying: ‘We’ll always remember you.’” State Sen. John Schickel sponsored the legislation after a Price family friend, Harry Sparrow, suggested the idea. Nicknamed the “Round Mound of Sound,” Price had 34

singles hit the charts. He also was host of WLW’s “Midwestern Hayride” and a cast member of the popular television show “Hee Haw.” He died in 1987. Recently, Price was inducted into the Northern Kentucky Music Legends Hall of Fame. At the ceremony unveiling the signage for the memorial highway, several of Kenny’s friends shared memories. Colleen Sharp Murray, who worked with Price on the WLW’s “Midwestern Hayride,” recalled his humble nature. “He could do anything,” she said. “He was remarkably talented. When prosperity hit, everybody thought he’d move to Nashville or Indian Hill at least. They never moved off LaCresta Drive (in Florence).” Nick Clooney, another friend and regular on WLW, gave a touching tribute. Clooney said that Price was one of “the best singers” he’s ever heard. “He sang with great heart and great intelligence,” he said. “All who drive past this sign may not know the name, but they will ask and someone will be here to say, ‘Kenny Price was a great singer, a great Kentuckian and a great man.’ No one ever dies who is remembered. Kenny Price will live forever.” Want to continue the conversation? Tweet @MStewartReports

Two-way brisket can be made in oven, slow cooker is in good condition, sometimes a knife doesn’t respond to honing. If that happens, it’s time to get the knife sharpened professionally.

The seasons on our little patch of heaven are marked by what’s going on outside in our gardens and what my husband, Frank, is doing with our outside equipment. Right now he’s “salting things away for the winter,” meaning he’s servicing the tiller, tractor, boat and lawn mowers for a Rita winter rest Heikenfeld in the gaRITA’S KITCHEN rage. Our bell peppers have finally ripened, so I was able to add them to an antipasto tray I made for a friend’s rehearsal dinner.

Need a stunning and delicious appetizer? An antipasto tray fills the bill. It is not only appealing to the eye, but there’s something on the tray for everybody. Go to your olive bar and ask lots of questions. I went to the Eastgate Jungle Jim’s olive bar and was able to sample whatever I wanted. This will help in choosing the right ingredients for your budget and guests. I did choose olives without pits. Since prosciutto is expensive, I bought a few slices to garnish and folded them over on top of the antipasto. I also sprinkled a can of chickpeas on top. The nice thing about this recipe is that it can be assembled a day ahead. For the sauce, I use Caesar salad dressing with fresh herbs stirred in. I drizzle the dressing on right before I serve it.

My favorite two-way brisket

Brisket is a cut of meat from the lower chest or breast of beef. It is amazingly flavorful, but tough, so slow cooking is a must. Either way you cook this – in the oven or in a slow cooker – the brisket turns out tender and so delicious.

Serve with mashed potatoes or noodles. 3 pounds beef brisket 2 cups chili sauce 1 cup brown sugar, packed 1 cup beef broth 1 very large onion, sliced 1 ⁄4 teaspoon ground cloves 3 bay leaves Salt and pepper to taste

Oven: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine chili sauce, sugar and broth. Pour about half of this in the bottom of roasting pan. Place brisket on sauce, fat side up. Distribute onion, cloves and bay leaves over brisket. Pour rest of sauce over. Cover and bake 50-55 minutes per pound or until meat is fork tender. Remove brisket from pan and remove bay leaves and whole cloves. Cut brisket across the grain. Skim off any fat from top of sauce. Pour sauce over brisket (or put sauce in refrigerator overnight and the fat will congeal on top for easy removal. Then reheat with brisket in 375 degree oven, covered, or in microwave). Slow cooker: I like to cook mine 9-12 hours or so on low, until meltingly tender.

Perfectly grilled salmon/seafood following the 70/30 rule Have the grill hot, lightly brush both sides of fish with oil, and start grilling skin side up with the grill closed. (Or put a disposable pan over the fish). Leave it alone until about 70 percent of the fish is done on first side. You’ll know it by the looks and also if it will release easily. This allows fish to form a nice crust. Turn it and finish cooking. The rule of

about 7-10 minutes per inch of thickness works, also. Start with 7 minutes and go from there.

Readers want to know:

Honing steels: “My honing/knife steel doesn’t work anymore. Should I replace it?” Run your thumbnail around the circumference of the tool. If you can still feel grooves, your steel is still useful. It is magnetized to pick up microscopic fillings that come off the knife’s blade. It’s a good idea to rub the steel with

Beware of e-mail, Internet scammers These days scammers have taken to the Internet to steal your money with fake emails, fraudulent websites and misleading sales offers. While Internet scams are numerous, several consumers still report receiving scams through the mail. A Fort Thomas man wrote me about a credit card offer he received from AmTrade International Bank. It offered him a credit card with “A $3,600 Visa credit limit! Guaranteed!” The man sent what was supposed to have been a refundable $900

fee, but says he never received the credit card nor a pre-paid gas card that was Howard also promAin ised. The HEY HOWARD! 74-year-old man says he’s on a fixed income so the loss of all that money hit him pretty hard. Although he paid by check and contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Trade Commission, he was told nothing could

Unfortunately, many consumers learn too late that the check they received in the mail is phony – and now they’re on the hook to repay the bank for the good money they wired to the criminals.

hotel. Fortunately, just like the Hyde Park woman, the Wyoming woman didn’t call the number and says she wants to warn others about this scam. Many people across the nation have received this letter. One person who called was told they first had to attend a timeshare sales presentation before they could receive the tickets they won. Another person who called was told they had to give their credit card number over the phone. One of the most frequent scams I’ve run into involves criminals send-

A Wyoming woman received a letter telling her she qualified for an award of two round-trip airline tickets. She suspected it was a scam because there was no return address and the letter had bad punctuation. So she too was told to call a phone number to claim her prize, allegedly valued at nearly $1,400. Better Business Bureau says this is just a phishing scam intending to steal people’s personal information. This woman never entered a contest to receive this award of two free airline tickets plus two nights a major

A Hyde Park woman wrote me to say she knew immediately the letter she received was a scam. It allegedly came from Publishers Clearing House and used the company’s real address. The $1.5 million she was told she won was anything but real. She knew not to bother calling the long distance phone number given to claim her winnings.

Prepare now for next year’s garden Question: Should I go ahead and rototill the garden and apply fertilizer now for next year’s garden? I had a lot of tomato and squash problems this year. My garden is finished! Answer: You can reduce the risk of some common problems next year by getting rid of leftover plant debris in vegetable, flower and fruit gardening areas this Mike fall. SeverKlahr al diseaseHORTICULTURE causing CONCERNS fungi and bacteria spend the winter on plant debris, and can cause diseases the following growing season. Proper garden sanitation now can combat such diseases as early blight, mildews, gray mold fungus and various root rot and wilt disease problems. To combat diseases, remove all plants, except winter vegetables or cover crops, from the vegetable garden. It is especially important to completely clean out and destroy all diseased plants in vegetable gardens and fruit plantings. Carefully dig up and remove decomposing roots to keep them from releasing diseasecausing microbes into the soil. Also, remove spent blooms and foliage from flower gardens and shriveled, mummified fruits on or around fruit trees and grapevines.

face. This reduces populations of disease-causing organisms that could cause problems next year. Another reason to till the garden in the fall is so it is ready to plant in early March, instead of having to wait until a rainy spring allows plowing or tilling the garden.
