Students learn to earn with stock market game By Amy Scalf

INDEPENDENCE — Summit View Middle School students recently started on a journey that will teach them about financial education and bring them closer to core curriculum math goals while winning real prizes including iPads. The Investing in Students, Making Math Count program kicked off Monday, Sept. 30, at Summit View, but it will encompass almost 1,300 students in 50 classrooms at Turkey Foot, Twenhofel, Woodland and Holmes middle school students also. “This program is one of the ways Fidelity works with students in the region to teach financial concepts,” said Nicole Gordon, Fidelity’s manager of community relations. She said the contest uses

“market concepts to make seventh-grade math interesting and relevant for students and to help them reach their financial goals in the future.” During the introductory event, students thought it was fun. “We got to do math and decide things on our own. There are five different stock markets and we figure out which one is doing best, and then see who can get the most stocks and the most money,” said Gabby Bornbrock, who won a spiral-bound notebook in the game. “It’s fun picking the stock markets,” said Tyler Dalton, who ended the day with $2,350 in his game portfolio. “I just kept picking and it kept going up.” “It’s really exciting when the stocks go up,” said Skylin Yates. Students will start an online See MARKET, Page A2

Parade comes back to Kenton County By Amy Scalf

Kenton County’s parades generally only come once a year, but the Parade of Homes is making its second appearance this year from Oct. 12-27. “This is our second singlesite home show this year. We haven’t seen that since 2005,” said Brian Miller, executive vice president for the Northern Kentucky Home Builders Association. “It’s great that we’ve got so much activity and interest in the home-building com-

munity that we can do two shows.” The five homes showcased in this parade are in Saylor Woods, described by Miller as an English countryside-themed community, off Taylor Mill Road in the Latonia Lakes area. To reach Saylor Woods, take Klette Road off Taylor Mill Road, or Ky. 16, and the subdivision is one mile ahead on the left. Tickets cost $8 each at the show, and $6 each at any Northern Kentucky Kroger store. Showtimes are 4-8 p.m. Fridays, 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturdays, and 11

a.m.-6 p.m. Sundays until Oct. 27. Miller said, “Saylor Woods is truly a hidden jewel in Kenton County with easy access from I-275 and convenient access to shopping, downtown and recreational venues.” The Parade of Homes have five different builders, ranging from $309,900 to $339,000 with a variety of options. Arlinghaus Builders’ home, the Mariemont, is at 436 Spencely Court and has four bedrooms and two and a half baths. The Stonechase by Lunsford

Woodland helps Brighton Center

TAYLOR MILL — Woodland Middle School students and business part-

with the highest hypothetical portfolios will compete in an NCAA tournament-like contest for real prizes in April. “The students do lessons online each week to gain simulation dollars, then by the end of the investment challenge, hopefully the kids make themselves millionaires,” said Gordon. “The online game is fun because it makes you feel like you’re in college. Reading about it in a book wouldn’t be as fun,” said Abbi Parham, a Summit View eighth-grader who won an iPad in last year’s

ners have teamed up to support the Brighton Center. Woodland, Remke, the Brighton Center and All Start Chiropractic will host a “Girls Tackling Hunger” powder-puff football game at 4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 26, at Woodland Middle School, 5399 Old Taylor Mill Road. Admission to the game costs one canned food item or a monetary donation that will be used to purchase food. All proceeds will go to the Brighton Center. The school will also collect canned goods at Remke, 5016 Old Taylor Mill Road. Woodland will also host a sidewalk art contest before the game at 2 p.m. The entry fee costs $5 and participants must bring their own chalk. Anyone who is hungry before or after the game can stop at Skyline in the Remke Shopping Center in Taylor Mill, and the restaurant will donate a portion of their sales to help purchase food for Brighton Center. Diners have to mention Woodland Middle School in order to participate. For more information, call the school at 859-3567300.

Park board seeks volunteers program. “It showed me what could happen in the future, how you can prepare for your future, what kind of risks you can take and stuff,” Abbi said. “When you can make it relevant for the kids, that’s wonderful and they’ll remember it,” said K.C. Ratliff, Summit View Middle principal. Kenton County School District Superintendent Terri Cox-Cruey said this kind of program wouldn’t be possible without the support of Fidelity as a business partner. “They built the pro-

gram to support the common core standards in math, and it takes up to 300 volunteers to help with the stock market game,” she said. “This is a prime example of how we need business people in the community to help us. We can cover some material, but for people who are currently working in those fields to be able to show students how it works in real life is so powerful and relevant for students. We can’t duplicate that.” Want to continue the conversation? Tweet @AmyScalfNky

Sallee isn’t the only one concerned about “the plague of heroin and other drugs across Northern Kentucky.” “Kenton County leads the state with 79 percent of heroin arrests,” said Kenton County Police Chief Brian Capps. He also said overall, drug use and trafficking has seen an exponential increase over the past three years. “We want to help pre-

vent drug and alcohol abuse, and, as a church, we want to address the physical as well as the spiritual needs of the community,” said Sallee. “We feel we’re equipped to take care of the spiritual part of the equation and we can partner with agencies to help the physical.

Mensa seeks N. Ky. members By Amy Scalf


Northern Kentucky’s best and brightest don’t have to travel very far to learn about or test for Mensa, but they probably already figured that out. The William A. Durr branch of the Kenton

County Public Library hosted an informational meeting about the worldwide social nonprofit organization Oct. 7, and will have testing Sunday, Oct. 13. The meeting was intended to be a time for residents to ask questions and learn about the organization prior to the

test, but no one showed up. That doesn’t mean there aren’t Mensa members nearby, nor does it mean that no one is interested. Brenda Clark, the library’s adult programmer, said test-takers were already registered. She also said she wanted to set up the meeting and

testing for quite a while. “Mensa is one of those organizations that we thought would be great to have here at the library, so we reached out and they were kind enough to come across the river and help us out,” she said. “We typically favor Cincinnati, because that’s where our chapter is based, but members come from all over the region,” said Bob Fitzgerald, Mensa member, test proctor and new member co-chairman. “There are a lot of member in Northern Kentucky,” said Verale Phillips, a Mensa member from Florence, who

meetings – throughout the year “Mensa really is a social organization,” said Fitzgerald. “We get together and colors brighten, sounds intensify. We find inspiration. We tune in, turn on and have fun.” He said the biggest misconception about Mensa is that members are socially awkward.

Applications should be filled out and paid online before the program. Tests cannot be purchased from Mensa or library staff during the event.

Grant helps achieve fitness and health Youth in school in the Erlanger-Elsmere, Beechwood, Ludlow and Silver Grove districts have a bright outlook in the areas of physical fitness and nutrition. Soon they will be able to use improved equipment and curriculum for physical education classes and participate in new projects to teach about nutrition. They will be able to serve on youth councils to lead all students in their schools in learning fun ways to be fit, and

they will benefit from family learning nights about nutrition and physical activity. Students also will find fun ways to make healthy eating choices and be more physically active before and after school. All these changes will come as a result of the recent grant award their schools received in collaboration with Northern Kentucky Cooperative for Educational Services. Schools will share $2,164,892 over the next three years from the Car-

ol M. White Physical Education Program of the US Department of Education. “Working together to help these students be fit, these four school districts will make a big hit on health problems from obesity facing students in Northern Kentucky in the future. We also will help them do better in their education now, because evidence shows that, when students are healthier, their academic achievement increases,” said Kathy

Burkhardt, superintendent of Erlanger-Elsmere schools, the lead school district for the grant. As a result of these efforts, more students will consume fruit two or more times a day and vegetables three or more times a day. More students will meet the goal of being physically active for 60 or more minutes each day, and students’ fitness will show when more students achieve the healthy fitness zone on the

Presidential Youth Fitness Program. The ultimate outcomes will be that more students and their family members will choose fit and healthy practices to promote lifelong health and that students will meet state standards for physical education and nutrition.

The academy, in partnership with United Way of Kentucky

and United Way of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, focuses on improving kindergarten preparedness. The academies, free to participants, teach parents and caregivers how to turn everyday moments into learning opportunities. The program focuses on prenatal to children 5 years old. According to Mott, research shows that students who start kindergarten with the skills they need have an increased likelihood of success. “We are thrilled with the support given by Toyota and United Way for this innovative program,” she said. “We know we will see long-term growth and success of our students and we feel confident that the academy

will increase academic achievement as well as community involvement with our families” The automaker is giving four multi-year grants totaling $136,000 to expand the program. With the expansion, 11 schools in the region are now a part of the academy. The other schools are: Collins Elementary in Florence, Grandview Elementary in Bellevue, Crossroads Elementary in Cold Spring, John G. Carlisle and Latonia elementary schools in Covington, Lindeman Elementary in Erlanger, and Beechgrove Elementary in Independence. Karen Cheser, chief academic officer for Boone County Schools, said the program has been successful during its three years at Collins Elementary.

She said the academy is important to a child’s overall development. “We know that our parents are our students’ first teachers and also their teachers throughout their lives,” she said. “The academies are important for our parents. Here they get the support they need. They learn great strategies and activities they can take part in with students to help make them ready and eager to learn.” There are 31 Toyota bornlearning Academies statewide, part of a five-year $1 million investment from the automaker. Toyota plans to establish about 70 academies statewide by 2016.

St. Joseph School students are preparing for the school’s biennial Walk-AThon, Friday, Oct. 18. Students from preschool to eighth grade are taking pledges to reach the school goal of $20,000. All proceeds from the walk will go toward an upgraded heating system and installation of centralized air. St. Joe’s school building was built in 1952 with wings added in 1985 and 1995, with no major renovations since. To date, the school has raised more than $108,000 via past Walk-A-Thons and grant monies. The projected cost of the upgrade and installation is $1.5 million. “This walk-a-thon fundraising event is very important as we plan for the structural future of St. Joseph School and the need to insure that we are always providing our students with an outstanding education in the Catholic tradition,” said school principal Cathy Stover. Every student that raises $35 (or $50 per family) will participate and receive a Tshirt, with additional prizes for students’ efforts including a trip to the Oriental Wok for lunch during school hours for the top 10 students. Donations are tax deductible and can be made to any SJS student or to the school directly. Checks made payable to St. Joseph School (attention Walk-a-thon), can be mailed to 2747 Lorraine Ave., Crescent Springs, KY 41017; or call 859-578-2742.

River Ridge ‘fueling’ its students By Stephanie Salmons

VILLA HILLS — River Ridge Elementary received a certificate of achievement for encouraging students to get active and healthy as part of a national initiative, Fuel Up to Play 60. Founded by the National Dairy Council and the NFL, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Fuel Up empowers students to make everyday changes at school. Students can win prizes like a visit from a NFL player or Super Bowl tickets for choosing

good-for-you foods and getting active for at least 60 minutes each day. Last year was the first year the school participated. Practical living teacher Jenn Ball, who last year taught physical education, got the program rolling. “I had heard of it before and I just started researching it,” she said. According to Ball, students were excited because of the perks associated with the program. “The students at River Ridge did a variety of things to pro-

mote Fuel Up,” she said. Ultimately, the program was promoted in students’ physical education classes “where we pushed to get 60 minutes of exercise everyday.” Students were given opportunities to do this during physical education, classroom activity breaks and even recess, as well as a “fun fitness Friday” video. Ball said students will be exposed to the program in two classes this year – physical education and a new practical living class. “Students will still be pushed

to get their 60 minutes of exercise every day, but will also be exposed to the nutrition side of Fuel Up a little bit more,” she said. Different “nutrition plays,” like drinking more milk and learning why it’s needed for kids will be incorporated in the practical living class. According to an announcement, the Fuel Up partnership is in alignment with goals outlined in first lady Michelle Obama’s childhood obesity platform. Want to continue the conversation?

By James Weber

EDGEWOOD — Despite a disappointing 16-13 defeat to Campbell County Oct. 11, the Dixie Heights High School football team has fashioned a strong 5-2 record this season. A vastly improved defense has been a major part of the turnaround from 2012, when the Colonels won just three games and allowed the opponent 35 points per contest, including 57 in a first-round playoff defeat. Dixie won five games in a row after an opening-game defeat to Covington Catholic. In four of the games, the Colonels gave up one single touchdown. The last win was a 40-6 win over a Lexington Tates Creek team that came in averaging about 40 points a contest. “We’ve played as good a defense as we have in five years at Dixie,” head coach David Brossart said. “Our linebacking corps has been outstanding. We’ve played strong football as the game has gone on.” Until Campbell scored nine points in the second quarter, Dixie had outscored opponents by an outstanding count of 158-0 in the second and third periods. The defense has been anchored by linebackers Brendan Fisk (senior) and Ben Owens (junior). Linemen Brandon Johnson and Colson Machlitt have led the way up front and have been producing all-state seasons, Brossart said. Strong defense will be key against high-powered rival Simon Kenton when the teams face off this Friday in a key district game in 6A. The Pioneers, 8-0 and 3-0 in district play, can clinch the district tile with a win. The Colonels can position themselves to tie for the title with a victory. SK’s offensive stats are well-known, as the Pioneers average 42 points a contest including 55 over the same Campbell County team. Senior quarterback Brenan

LOOKING AHEAD What: Dixie Heights v. Simon Kenton football game. When: 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 18 Where: Simon Kenton High School, 11132 Madison Pike, Independence, KY 41051. Fun fact: Simon Kenton averages 42 points per game, the thirdhighest average in the state in Class 6A. Dixie Heights allows 12 points per game on defense, the second-best in the state in 6A.

Kuntz is certainly having an all-state year, completing more than 70 percent of his passes, compiling 1,667 yards and 21 touchdowns with just one pick. That interception was a Hail Mary in the season opener. Kuntz also has 638 rushing yards and eight scores. “Simon is a difficult challenge,” Brossart said. “They throw the ball real well. We have to play really well, and we don’t feel like it’s who we play;

it’s how we play.” Brossart knows his Colonels have to cash in on offensive opportunities against SK. He said one key to the Campbell loss was the Colonels failing to score on three different drives inside the Camels’ 10-yard line. Dixie had scored 36 points or more in its five-game winning streak. “Against a good football team, you can’t do those things,” he said.

TMC football ‘right there’ with chance to meet goals By Adam Turer

Halfway through the Division III college football regular season, the Thomas More Saints have been both dominant and humbled. After shutting out three of their first four opponents, the Saints allowed 45 points in a loss to Washington and Jefferson on Oct. 12 that knocked Thomas More from the unbeaten ranks. It also knocked the Saints out of the top 25, where the Saints had reached No. 23. “We learned a valuable lesson,” said head coach Jim Hilvert. “We can’t hurt ourselves. I hope that was a valuable lesson going into the final five

games of the regular season.” Thomas More is now one of five teams in the Presidents Athletic Conference with one league loss. At this time last year, the Saints had an uphill battle to keep their playoff streak alive. This year, the Saints avenged both of 2012’s PAC losses, defeating Waynesburg and Geneva in convincing fashion. But the Presidents, who were dealt their lone conference loss in four of the past five seasons by Thomas More, exacted their own measure of revenge last weekend. “We have to come back and practice hard,” Hilvert said. “We have a chip back on our shoulder. We will not be complacent.” The dominating de-

have a lot to play for. The goals we set—win the conference, get back to the playoffs—are still right there.” The Saints play at Thiel College on Oct. 19 and return home for a contest with Grove City College at 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 26. At this point, the Saints need to run the table and hope that Washington and Jefferson loses one more league game. All they can do is control what they do on the field for the next five Saturdays. “I can’t believe we’re at the halfway point already,” said Hilvert. “We told our players that they only have five more games that are guaranteed. We have to make the most of them.”

back Domonique Hayden (Lexington Christian) is averaging 189.4 rushing yards per game, best in Division III. “Our offense has gotten better every single game, and our defense has looked unstoppable at times,” said Hilvert. “We still have a pretty good football team. I think we have the potential to be a great football team.” Despite winning their final six games of the 2012 season, the Saints missed the playoffs for the first time since 2007. After early season stumbles derailed last season, Thomas More was determined to start fast in 2013. “We had plenty of motivation in the offseason to try to get the PAC back,” said Hilvert. “We still

If you are concerned about increased deficit spending for more government programs, get ready, you actually want to harm the poor and children. If you oppose increased deficit spending for more free tuition for college, get ready, you actually want to harm students and young people. If you believe that raising the minimum wage will curb entry level job growth, get ready, you want to hurt the poor. If you support Medicare or Social Security reform, you want to harm older Americans – but you already knew this one. If you believe that tax hikes will hurt job growth, you want to help the

rich and hurt the poor. There you go again. If you think people should come to the country lawfully before they receive benefits funded by taxpayers, you’re against minorities. Why is this tactic so effective? It’s an easy sentence to say or write. They coined the phrase “sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me” before the advent of the Internet and social media. The “hater” is left to defend, at some length, against a tactic which can demonize and silence. Here’s a better idea. On both sides, respect everyone in the process and listen to their arguments. Present cogent points about how and why proposals should or should not be funded, without lowest common denominator shots. Meanwhile, wrongly accused haters, I hope you will keep speaking up. America needs robust debate. The kitchen will remain hot, but you’re an essential part of our democracy.

Plan ahead – be an informed consumer As we grow older we are reminded of the importance of planning ahead – have a financial plan, a will, powers of attorney, etc. We are often not an informed consumer when a crisis of a fall or illness happens. The consequences can be great. We baby boomers love to develop plans for the seniors in our lives when dramatic changes occur. Yet, we are in denial about those same changes to be considered for ourselves. The greatest generation, our parents, could also be called the “make do” generation because they adjust to their circumstances as best they can without any changes. But then a crisis occurs, maybe a fall, disease or hospitalization, we often do not know what we need but do know



Why does government spend so much? Because we love to fix just about everything and we think we can. Government is one of the natural ways we do this together. This alone, however, would not be enough to cause us to continue spending so much more money than we’re bringing in. Now that we’re nearly $17 trillion in debt, our spending equation relies primarily on something else. On Oct. 10, The Enquirer highlighted it nicely. As part of a column extolling the virtues of Obamacare, the author of this banner piece punctuated her argument with a typical one sentence attack, “A vote to defund, delay or repeal the Affordable Care Act is unequivocally a vote to harm women.” The accusation got me a bit worked up. I like to be liked. I love the women in my life – my mother, wife, daughter and sisters-in-law with all my heart. I represent women in my law practice. Heck, I even love my mother-in-law. I might be a hater and I didn’t even know it! But it gets worse. I’ve been told that my Obamacare concerns make me want people to get sick and die, which, let’s face it, probably makes me even worse than a hater. Today, if you’re

I am always amazed when I can be standing three feet away from my husband, or one of my children, say something that I feel is worth listening to, have them acknowledge with a head roll or slight moan, and later find that they had no idea that we had a conversation at all. I use the word conversation very loosely in those instances. My point is: how can someone look at you, answer a question – albeit with a nod – and not remember doing so? What can be even more frustrating is when those conversations include phrases like, “don’t forget,” “you really need to do this or that,” and “it’s important.” I’ve come to realize that it’s not that my children and/or husband have difficulty focusing, it’s Julie House just that sometimes COMMUNITY when I want to talk, RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST what they’re doing seems more important or pressing to them at the time. And giving their full attention to both is nearly impossible. The game they’re playing or the show they’re watching takes center stage and drifts off into their long-term memory where they can remember and reminisce about it with friends or one another for eternity. Meanwhile, my urging to clean a room, pick up a dirty sock, or pick up a child from violin practice takes a back seat, drifting into the short-term memory, soon to be lost for eternity. Although my husband has never forgotten a child at violin, we have had to “rehash” weekly schedules, to ensure we were both on the same page. And if I am honest, my husband and children aren’t the only ones who have had to say, “Did we talk about this?” It causes me to wonder, How often has God had to “rehash” his plans for me, when my focus was elsewhere? How many times has he told me, “don’t forget,” “you really need to do this or that,” and “this is really important?” My husband is notorious around our house for saying, “If you would have just listened the first time ...,” and it’s so true. If they would listen the first time, there would be no negative consequences. No privileges taken away, and no guilt or sorrow. How true this must be for you and me as well. If we would just listen to the initial promptings of the Holy Spirit, we could bathe in the privileges and promises of God. We could avoid the negative consequences and guilt and sorrow that so often come with “not listening the first time.” But how can I hear the Holy Spirit when my mind is so filled with other things? Use the method I use on my children. “Put down the remote, iPad or book and look at me and listen very closely.” Try it on your heavenly father. Put down the remote, book or iPad, turn to him, ask him to speak and listen very closely. As you do, remember what Jesus promised in his word, “When he, the spirit of truth has come, he will guide you into all truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak; and he will tell you things to come.” (John 16:13) May you be blessed in the coming week, with a very clear “chore list” from your heavenly father. And upon accomplishing all your tasks experience an abundant “allowance” of his provisions, mercy and love.

Harvest time at N.Ky’s first winery By Chris Mayhew


he novelty of harvesting grapes in a vineyard attracted volunteers 10 years ago to StoneBrook Winery in Camp Springs. Now paid workers do the picking. “In 2001 we were the first vineyard in Northern Kentucky,” said owner Dennis Walter. The president of the Kentucky Grape and Wine Council, Walter said the past 10 years has seen Northern Kentucky’s wine industry mature. Other people grew grapes as a hobby, but not as a commercial enterprise, he said. Now StoneBrook is among eight wineries in Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties, and there are more than 30 people growing grapes to sell without having a winery. “Before it was just kind of a new crop,” Walter said. “Everybody was kind of scratching their heads wondering if you could actually grow grapes in Kentucky to begin with and Northern Kentucky in particular. We’ve proved over the years that you can grow grapes. You can make great wine.” Wineries in Northern Kentucky have stopped having to prove themselves. Walter said StoneBrook

wines have earned medals in international, state and local competitions. There is a StoneBrook tasting kiosk with a seating area at Newport on the Levee in addition to a tasting room in Camp Springs. “We’ve proven to ourselves and to our customers that we can do a good job,” he said. Switching to grape production was another reinvention for Walter’s family farm. Before grapes he was a cattle farmer, and his family raised tobacco. He has 10 acres of grape vines, and on Oct. 10 harvested his final field to gather about four tons of cabernet franc, a red wine grape variety. Walter first planted and bottled vidal blanc, a grape he uses to make a white wine by the same name. More than five tons of vidal blanc grapes were picked at StoneBrook this year. “The vidal blanc is where we hang our hat,” he said. Vidal blanc, which makes a sweeter wine, remains the winery’s top selling variety. But sales of the cabernet franc, a dry wine, is on pace to overtake vidal blanc sales, he said. “Usually in new wine country you have a lot more sweet wine drinkers than dry wine drinkers,” Walter said. “But as the industry

ages and your consuming public ages they tend to go little dryer.” Walter still gets excited at harvest time. “You look back and say, ‘Yeah we did a great job.’ We’ve weathered the wet weather and the mildews and some of these things that Mother Nature throws at you throughout the year. And you end up with a nice crop, so it’s kind of a good feeling.” The StoneBrook winemaking shop is near the bottom of his hillside vineyard fields. The grapes are

dumped by hand into a crushing machine. Stems are spit out of the machine’s side, and the juice and skins are piped into a 1-ton fermenting tank. “This is where the reds will ferment on their skins in this tank,” he said. “And the reason we do that is so that the grapes get color. So, they get a red color.” The red cabernet franc grapes will ferment for 10-15 days and are then put in a press, Walter said. “We’ll press them and

thus we have red wine,” he said. “And from there they’ll go into either stainless steel or oak barrels to be aged.” Aging red wine takes about two years, he said. “The longer, the better for the reds.” The Central Kentucky area around Lexington has been where the largest number of wineries in the state have been located, said Tyler Madison, director of grape and wine marketing for the Kentucky Department of Agriculture and the Kentucky Grape and Wine Council. “I could see Northern Kentucky rivaling Central Kentucky eventually,” Madison said. Northern Kentucky has a history of quality wines. German immigrants planted vineyards in the 19th century when the area was called the American Rhine, he said. Then came a vine-killing blight and Prohibition. “The industry basically got wiped out,” he said. In Kentucky 10 years ago there were less than 100 acres of vineyard, Madison said. “There is close to 600 acres in the state now,” he said. “And 10 years ago we had a dozen wineries, and we have 70 licensed and 68 operating now. That means there will probably be a couple more wineries soon.”

Pea salad just like one from Hotel Sinton Today we started our first fire in the wood stove for the season. But it was a little weird, too, because when I looked out the window, the impatiens were a riot of color in the window boxes and the morning glories Rita looked like Heikenfeld a burst of RITA’S KITCHEN blue sky climbing up the white picket fence. The weather had turned quite chilly and it really was a perfect morning to have a nice, aromatic fire. If you ask most folks, they will tell you fall is their favorite time of year. I guess it’s because the outside work is winding down and so are we. And there’s nothing quite so beautiful as a mosaic of reds, browns and yellows as the leaves carpet our old country road.

Hotel Sinton’s spring pea salad

I was glad to get so many responses to Jan B.’s request for the Hotel Sinton pea salad. As always, thanks, thanks, thanks! The recipe from Juliane B., a Colerain township reader, was exactly like the one originally published by Cheri Brinkman in her first book of the best-selling series: “Cincinnati and Soup.” Now that I’ve seen the recipe, I know I’ve eaten it and liked the salad a lot. Juliane said she’s

enough caramel coating for 10.) Sucker sticks or wooden craft sticks Toppings: chopped nuts, cookies, mini M&M’s, crushed pretzels, etc.

post on my blog. Frisch’s ranch dressing: I’ve had a couple requests for this, so if you have a similar recipe, please share.

Remove stem and wash and dry apples. Insert sticks. Set aside. Melt caramels with water over low heat. Dip apples in halfway or all the way if you want (you’ll get a smaller yield). Immediately roll bottoms in your choice of toppings. Set on sprayed pan to dry.

Knife skills video. Last week I shared information on honing steels. At the end of this month, Robert Hess, an expert on cutlery, will be a guest on my cable show “Love starts in the kitchen” on Union Township TV. The show will air in November on Warner Cable 8 and 15, so tune in.

Can you help?

Rita’s reader- submitted recipe for a pea salad is just like the salad from the old Hotel Sinton. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

made it several times and people love it. Cheri told me: “This is a rare one as it is a salad dressing, not a true pea salad. It came from an older lady I knew who actually learned to cook in the kitchen of the old Hotel Sinton. What is interesting in this is the amount of mayonnaise in the salad; this may be lessened by the cook if they choose. The most important thing to stress here is that it should be served by tablespoon over chopped lettuce not as a solo salad – that was not what they did in “the good old days.” Best made ahead. FYI Cheri just published her latest, and best-selling, book “Cincinnati and Soup: Festivals and Frolics.”

2 (16 oz.) bags frozen green peas 6 green onions, chopped 2 stalks of celery chopped fine 3 cups mayonnaise (more or less) 4 hard-boiled eggs, sliced

Mix peas, onions and celery. Mix in 2 cups mayonnaise. Put in a 9-inch by 13-inch dish and top with 1 cup mayonnaise. Garnish with the hard-boiled eggs. Serve. May be served over chopped lettuce.

Easy caramel apples

The hardest part of this recipe is opening all the caramels. I dipped the apples only halfway up and then rolled them into finely chopped salted nuts.

Don’t do too much fall clean-up Question: I’m getting ready to start my outdoor fall clean-up. The trees and bushes in my landscape are getting too big. Should I go ahead and fertilize them when I cut them back? Answer: There is a popular myth or misunderstanding that circulates around at this time of year. It says that fall is the time to do most of your pruning and cutting back of trees and shrubs, as you clean up the landscape for winter. Well, actually that is bad advice for this part of the country. Late summer and fall is a time when trees and shrubs

naturally acclimate, or harden off, for winter. As the days grow shorter and temMike peratures Klahr cool down, HORTICULTURE this procCONCERNS ess takes place on its own, unless we interrupt it by pruning heavily or applying excessive nitrogen fertilizer at this time of year. Pruning and heavy fertilizing with nitrogen are invigorating processes, stimulating the tree into growth, or at

least putting the tree into growth mode. This is just the opposite of what is best for the tree right now, as it is attempting to shut down and harden off for winter. New growth now, or even the internal changes and dehardening processes at the cellular level which precede actual visible growth, will result in tender plant tissue that is easily damaged by cold weather, which could lead to a weakened or dead plant by next summer. Pruning cuts now would also leave fresh wounds exposed to the cold. Spring-blooming land-

‘Sunshine vitamin’ an important part of any diet It is called the “sunshine vitamin” because our bodies can make it when exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D helps our bodies absorb calcium and phosphorus from foods. All of these nutrients are needed for strong bones. Vitamin D is also used for other functions in our bodies and is important for muscle health. Vitamin D levels can be easily checked through a blood test ordered by your health care provider. In the 1930s, legislation was passed to fortify dairy milk with vitamin D to help in the fight against rickets. Rickets is

Adults with vitamin D deficiency are at higher risk of falls. The recommended daily allowance, set in 2010, is 600 IU for those ages 1-70.

scape trees and shrubs like redbud, lilacs and forsythias, should be pruned within two weeks after their flowers fade. Pruning these plants from July through their normal spring bloom time would remove potential flowers, since these plants make their flower buds the previous season and then bloom on their old wood. Summer-blooming trees and shrubs like butterflybush, annabelle hydrangea and rose-of-sharon start flowering in June or later and should be pruned in early March before growth begins.

IU per day. Vitamin D is found naturally in several foods. Fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, and mackerel are among the best sources. Beef liver, cheese and egg yolks provide small amounts. Almost all milk in the U.S. is fortified with 400 IU of vitamin D per quart. Foods made with milk like cheese and ice cream are usually not fortified. Vitamin D is often added to breakfast cereals. Diane Mason is county extension agent for family and consumer sciences at the Boone County Cooperative Extension Service.


The purpose of this clinical research study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability and effectiveness of an investigational drug in people with moderate to severe pain due to osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee.
