INDEPENDENCE — Before Hurricane Sandy made landfall in New Jersey on Oct. 29, Tom Owen was prepared to go and help. A trained and certified volunteer with the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief, Owen was called to Staten Island, a southwest borough of New York City near New Jersey, along with three other Hickory Grove Baptist Church members: Ray Saner, and Bob and Rhonda Brame. They returned to Independence together on Nov. 13. Owen saw boats and cars washed into buildings, debris caught on fences and roadsides,

cars covered in inches of sand, and mountains of furniture and household items stacked on city property after being cleared out of flooded homes. The worst thing he saw was “people of means” rummaging through bags of donated items to take what they wanted. “It’s sad. It’s going to take years for them to recover, to rebuild and relocate,” he said. Owen served as a site manager and chaplain, organizing daily relief for the area. Mostly, he listened. “It’s called the ministry of presence. You don’t have to say a lot, just be there for people when they need you,” he said. “We didn’t go to push religion. People need to know we care about

them. We’re there because we care. We’re there to share God’s love. It could be us next time, so we need to pull together.” He said the area’s greatest need is long-term recovery support and suggests donations to the American Red Cross, online at; The Salvation Army,; and the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief Fund, The local volunteers were among 156 volunteers deployed from Kentucky, of 3,500 trained volunteers in the Kentucky Southern Baptist Disaster Relief ranks. Across the country, Southern Baptist Disaster Relief has 73,000 volunteers, certified

in a variety of skills: assessment, chainsaw, communications, child care, mass feeding, flood relief, shower and laundry, and chaplains. SBDR is one of the three largest mobilizers of trained disaster relief volunteers in the United States, along with the American Red Cross and The Salvation Army. SBDR volunteers from Kentucky, Texas, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Mississippi worked alongside Owen on Staten Island, and the organization reports more than 700 volunteers from 24 states attending to the devastation caused by Sandy. According to a Nov. 12 press release from the North American Missions Board, which coor-

dinates the SBDR, volunteers had provided more than 670,000 meals in hurricane-afflicted areas, and the organization is expected to continue providing meals into December. Volunteers pay their own travel expenses, packing their own cots and sleeping gear to rest wherever the organization sends them. “Individually, we can’t do much, but we can do something, and together, collectively, we can make a difference,” said Owen. “Even with all our volunteer presence, we didn’t even scratch the surface of their need. This is a very long-term situation, not just for the next few weeks. This is going to go on for a long time.”

Martin, who served for 16 years on the school board, distributed a concession message wishing Culbertson success and including words of gratitude for his supporters. “A thank you to all who have voted for me, past and present, and a special thanks to the dedicated teachers and staff,” said Martin. “To the 12,000 students, always do what is

right and enjoy school, make friends, and don’t be afraid to daydream.” IncumWicklund bents ran without competition in the First and Second Educational Districts, returning veterans Karen Collins and Carl Wicklund to their posts with vote tallies of 6,956 and 5,579, respectively.

Little ones can write their letters to Santa, deposit them in a local collection mailbox at the courthouse or library, and receive a return letter from the jolly elf himself through the Kenton County Parks and Recreation Letters to Santa–Letters from Santa program. Mailboxes are located at all three branches of the Kenton County Library: Covington’s Mary Ann Mongan branch, the Erlanger branch, and the William E. Durr branch in Independence, as well as the Kenton County courthouses in Covington and Independence. Letters must include each child’s full name and mailing address and be received by Monday, Dec. 3, to receive a return letter. Donations of non-perishable food and personal care items are also being collected for Senior Services of Northern Kentucky in decorated containers next to each mailbox.

College offers limited edition view of the Bible



Even scholars at Thomas More College have never seen the Bible like this. A Heritage Edition of Pentateuch, the first five books of the Bible’s Old Testament, and 10 illuminated pages from other volumes of The Saint John’s Bible were unveiled at the college’s Eva G. Farris Art Gallery at noon Nov. 12. “There’s an enormous amount of artistry and thought that’s gone into the Heritage Edition to give the viewer as close an experience as possible to the real thing,” said Stacy Smith Rogers, director of Thomas More College communications and public relations. The Heritage Edition is a full-size, limited-edition, signed and numbered fine art reproduction of The Saint John’s Bible, the first handwritten, illuminated Bible commissioned by a Benedictine Abbey since

This illuminated page, “Messianic Predictions,” is based on Scripture from the biblical book of Isaiah, featured in the “Prophets” volume of The Saint John’s Bible and will be displayed in the Thomas More College Art Gallery until Nov. 27. AMY SCALF/THE

During the unveiling event and when the exhibit is staffed, the protective case is opened so visitors can see, touch and turn the 100 percent cotton pages, but only after a ceremonial hand-washing. Pentateuch is one of two volumes from the sevenvolume set that will reside at the college. The Wisdom Books – containing Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, The Song of Solomon, The Wisdom of Solomon, and Sirach – is set to be unveiled in the new Mary, Seat of Wisdom Chapel on Sunday, Dec. 9.

It’s so neat. It looks like it was printed out. I bet it takes a lot of time and patience that I don’t have.” Rogers said production of The Saint John’s Bible was expected to take six years, but it was not completed for 13 years.

ERLANGER — The adorned olive green jacket fits Sam Riesenberg nearly perfectly, but it still leaves him some room to grow. The 10-year-old student at Mary Queen of Heaven School walked to a Veterans Day program in the company of his grandfather, John Gripschover, who wore the coat nearly 70 years ago when he served with the U.S. Army during World War II. Mary Queen of Heaven’s Veterans Day program shines amongst those in Northern Ken-

tucky schools, because the school received an American flag flown by a troop serving in Afghanistan that students sent packages to. The flag flew in Afghanistan on the Fourth of July. “We were overwhelmed by some dozen packages that arrived over a couple of weeks,” wrote Eric Burley, a U.S. Air Force captain, in a letter. “Your packages lifted morale after long flights and very warm days.” Lisa Burley, originally from Greater Cincinnati, flew in from Oregon to present the school with the flag. Eric is her son. “(Presenting the flag) was one

of the proudest moments of my life,” Lisa said after the program. “I’m proud to be part of the great men who serve our country.” Students at Mary Queen of Heaven then honored veterans, who were seated in the front rows of the gymnasium, with poems and performances. Sam’s younger brother, Ross, was also part of the ceremony. He said he’s proud he can celebrate Veterans Day with his grandfather. “It’s really cool to hear my grandpa tell how it was in World War II,” Ross said. Visit for more community news

Students are ‘someone’ who can stop bullies By Libby Cunningham

The Kenton County Board of Education awarded three staff members the What Outstanding Work awards. Pictured are recipients Toni Scherbauer, Julie Feinauer and Maybelle Engle. THANKS TO TERESA WILKINS

Board of Education awards three staff professionals Community Recorder The Kenton County Board of Education presented the What Outstanding Work award to three staff members in October. Recipients were Julie Feinauer, Maybelle Engle and Toni Scherbauer. Feinauer, nominated by a colleague, is a counselor at the Kenton County Academies of Innovation & Technology. She taught English at Simon Kenton High School prior to joining the Academies this fall. She jumped right into the work and took ownership of the development of the academies academic structure. She believes every scholar will be successful and is willing to give 100 plus to accomplish completion of each project and goal to clear the pathway for their success. Feinauer gives a helping hand where needed, such as Infinite Campus training with the new teachers or attending to a parent and student request about the Academies. She has many suggestions and plans to make the Academies and scholars successful in the Kenton County District. Engle was also nominated by a colleague. When a pipe burst at Woodland Middle School in August and coolant was flowing down from the ceiling, it was Engle to the rescue. She rushed into the room and pulled the boxes of cheerleading uniforms

to safety. If it were not for her quick actions, all of the Woodland cheerleading uniforms would have been ruined. However, Engle didn’t stop there, she took the uniforms home and personally washed them so they would be in good shape for the upcoming football season. Engle, who has worked at Woodland Middle School since it opened, always has a positive “can do” attitude and she puts the welfare of the staff and students first. When the school started this year, the cafeteria staff was down three positions due to illness. Again, Engle jumped in and washed fruit and did other jobs as needed to make sure all the students were fed. Scherbauer, nominated by a colleague, is the first voice that callers hear when they contact Central Office. That voice is always friendly, upbeat and helpful. Through her people skills and her knowledge of who handles what – Scherbauer is able to immediately provide accurate information to those who call. Also, when she cannot solve the problem, she knows exactly who is best to handle the issue and directs the call to them. During the most tense and frustrating situations, Scherbauer is unflappable. She treats every caller with dignity and respect – even when she is not being treated that way.

FORT MITCHELL — Scott Harvey wants students at Beechwood Independent Schools to know they are someone. Each of them is someone that can take a stand against bullying. He’s letting the kids know now, because he says sometimes it’s too late to stop bullying if you expect someone else to step in. Harvey, a police officer in Nicholasville, has worked in many schools as a D.A.R.E. officer. He’s seen a need for anti-bullying education in Kentucky schools, so he created the “I Am Someone” program. Beechwood’s middle and high school students attended the program on Nov. 13, which is the first step in a behavioral management program the district is looking to adopt, said Beechwood Superintendent Steve Hutton. Parents were invited to another session of the presentation. Harvey’s speech highlights three expectations the district will have for students, Hutton said, to be safe, respectful and responsible. Before Harvey began speaking Ben Zimmerman, high school principal, addressed the crowd about bullying at Beechwood. “The way that it stops is for you to take care of your neighbor, whether you know them or not,” Zimmerman advised. Bullying, be it direct or indirect, occurs in every school, Harvey said. “Kids say it isn’t a problem,” he told the students after he asked if bullying was a problem at Beechwood.

Scott Harvey, a police officer with the Nicholasville Police Department, came to Beechwood Schools to speak to students about taking a stand against bullying. LIBBY CUNNINGHAM/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER Direct bullying would be saying hurtful things to someone. Cyberbulling is a form of indirect bullying, Harvey explained. Both forms have impact and one thing in common, they happen outside of adult supervision. Harvey’s system teaches that students need to step up, take ac-

tion and take care of students who are being targeted. “I am someone, it reminds me I am someone who’s already there,” Harvey said. “And if I don’t help, someone else may not be coming.”

Tom Douthit takes over as head coach for the Cougars, who were 2-26 last year. They have six seniors on the roster. Calvary hosts Augusta Thursday, Nov. 29, to start the season.

Covington Catholic

The Colonels were 17-14 last year and 35th District runner-up.

Junior point guard Nick Ruthsatz returns after averaging 19 points per game last year. Other returning starters are senior guard Nick Fredrick, senior center Zack Tobler and senior forward Sawyer Pauly. Tobler averaged 12.3 points per game and Fredrick 8.7. Fredrick led the team with 53 threes made. Leading the newcomers are sophomore center Bo Schuh, junior center Mark Schult and junior forward Ben Heppler. The Colonels’ goal this year is to continue an uptempo style on offense and improve on defense. Cov Cath has a challenging schedule this year, playing at Clark County Tuesday, Nov. 27. Cov Cath plays Taft Dec.1and has its home opener Dec. 7 against Pendleton County. The Colonels will play in the Lloyd holiday tourney Dec. 27-29 and will be in the Scott County showcase Jan. 17-19.

Covington Latin Head coach Gene Morrison returns everyone from last year’s team, which finished 7-20. The team builds around senior forward Mitchell Blewett, who put up some of the best numbers in the state last year, averaging 27 points and 13.3 rebounds a contest. Blewett has a chance to beat David Justice’s school scoring record this year. Senior Dorien Clark led the team with 3.5 assists a game last year and really improved last season, Morrison said. Clark averaged 13 points a game. Senior Ben Knapmeyer, a wing and point guard, averaged 13.4 points a game. Adam Green, who missed last season to injury, is strong on defense, rebounding and perimeter shooting and could be a key contributor. “We hope to improve on last season’s record,” Morrison said. “I think our perimeter play will be better on offense and defense. Our rebounding should be solid

Jason Booher has a strong core of returners as he puts the Bulldogs into position for a regional title run. Booher, in his third year as head coach, was 23-7 last year and 44-18 in two seasons. Three returning seniors set the pace, as senior guard B.J. Coston averaged 10.2 points a game last year and senior guard DaQuan Palmer posted 9.6 a contest. Senior Chris Englemon averaged 4.6 points a game. Sophomore James “Beetle” Bolden, a 6-foot point guard, has potential to be one of the best 10th-graders in Kentucky, Booher said. Bolden averaged 3.4 points a game last year. Junior Quinton Chames, a 6-4 post player, comes in from Holy Cross to add some needed size to the Bulldogs. Booher said inside size is his main concern, and the team’s strengths are quickness, speed and three-point shooting. Holmes starts the year at Newport Tuesday, Nov. 27 and hosts Lloyd Friday, Nov. 30. The Bulldogs will have a home tournament Dec. 21-22 then travel to Orlando Dec. 27-29.

COVINGTON — Five seniors representing four sports signed with three colleges Nov. 16 in the Holy Cross High School gymnasium. The numbers were impressive no matter what, but even more so considering all five of the athletes are going to NCAA Division I programs, a rarity for a school as small as Holy Cross. “It’s an absolute joy as an educator,” said HC athletic director Anne Julian. “I feel like a proud parent seeing them achieve their goals and their dreams, and really representing their school and everyone that helped them. They get it done on the field and the classroom.” Basketball center Tony Campbell signed with Ohio University. Softball player Madyson Moran committed to James Madison University. Maddie Staubitz joined the rowing team at the University of Louisville. Two baseball stars will go D-I, as Connor Callery committed to Ohio and Blake Tiberi to Louisville. The baseball team has won 51 games the last two years and was All “A” state runner-up three years ago when Callery and Tiberi were freshmen. “They’ve started since they were freshmen,” said Mike Holtz, HC’s former head coach who gave way to Pat Ryan when Holtz became principal at Holy Cross. “We’ve had freshmen contribute at the varsity level but not as much as Blake and Connor did. It’s rare to have one Division I player

Holy Cross had five Division I signees Nov. 16: From left, Connor Callery (baseball, Ohio), Madyson Moran (softball, James Madison), Tony Campbell (basketball, Ohio), Maddie Staubitz (crew, Louisville), Blake Tiberi (baseball, Louisville). JAMES WEBER/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER on the team, but to get two in one class is incredible, and I’m very proud of them.” Moran, a mainstay at shortstop for the Indians, missed a big chunk of last season to injury. Campbell is starting his second season with the Indians after transferring in. Campbell, a 6foot-8 center, is generally considered the top player in Northern Kentucky and helped the Indians to the All “A” state title last year. “We’re excited that we’ve had him for a summer and a preseason,” said HC head coach Erik Goetz. “Last year he became eligible a day before our first game, so it’s been great to have him in the preseason. He’s really improved this year.” Campbell was best last year at blocking shots and hitting perimeter shots. Goetz expects him to be more forceful around the basket on offense this year. Ohio won the Mid-American Conference tourney last year and

went to the NCAA Sweet 16. But first, Campbell wants a big year for the Indians. “We have a tough schedule,” he said. “We’ll play those tough games and come back and try to win our region.” Staubitz was a former starter in goal in soccer and a veteran hoops player for the Indians, but was forced to give up both sports after a series of concussions. Staubitz got into rowing with the Cincinnati Junior Rowing Club, one of the top teams in the Midwest, and competed on a thirdplace team at the national championships. The rowing club trains at the Licking River. “I had interest in it before and when I couldn’t play sports anymore, I gave it a try,” she said. “(The CJRC) has great coaches and an awesome program. They make it really easy to do well.” Follow James on Twitter @RecorderWeber.

ship and finishing with a 28-3 record. The campaign ended prematurely with a triple-overtime loss to Covington Catholic in the 35th District Tournament. Erik Goetz, who returns for his seventh year as head coach with a113-73 record, returns a solid core from last season as they try to build on last year. Senior Tony Campbell, a 6-foot-9 center, has signed with Ohio University. He led Northern Kentucky in rebounding and blocked shots last year in his first season with the Indians. He was named NKY defensive player of the year. Senior guard Christian McClendon was an all-conference pick last year. Freshman guard Markel McClendon and senior guard Burt Pouncy have great quickness on the perimeter and will help the Indians keep their uptempo style of play, Goetz said. Seniors Travis Gabbard, Nate Cox and Blake Tiberi add long-range shooting. Senior Will Knochelman, a 6-7 center, adds depth inside. Holy Cross starts the season Dec. 4 at Newport, then plays at Cooper Dec. 7 in a key early test. HC’s home debut is Dec. 8 against Lloyd.


The Panthers were 1414 last year and were champions of the Northern Kentucky Athletic Conference in Division III. Head coach Steve Hart returns and set up an ambitious schedule, starting at home against New-

port Central Catholic Tuesday, Nov. 27, and continuing Friday, Nov. 30, against Conner. Ludlow will also be in the Lloyd Invitational Dec. 27-29.

Scott starts the season at Ryle Monday, Nov. 26 and has its home opener Wednesday, Nov. 28 against Silver Grove.


The Pioneers were 23-8 last year and had a heartbreaking one-point loss to Gallatin County in the Eighth Region tournament. SK won the 32nd District championship and graduated 1,000-point scorer Cody Chambers and Ryan Mullen from the backcourt. Chambers averaged 18 points a game and Mullen eight. SK returns three starters, senior guard Andrew Sampson, senior guard Nick Ayers and senior guard Riley Barnes. Sampson averaged 13.4 points a game, Barnes 8.5 and Ayers 7.3. Other returners with experience include 6-foot-5 senior center Brandon Yanke, 6-3 junior guard Brenan Kuntz, 6-2 junior forward Taylor Morrison and 6-4 sophomore guard Noah Robinson. Trent Steiner returns for his 10th year as head coach with a 135-128 record. He said the team’s strengths are perimeter shooting, defensive length and quickness, and experience and depth. Post play is the main preseason concern. SK hosts Boone County to open the season Tuesday, Nov. 27.

The Eagles went 15-15 last season for Brad Carr, who returns for his ninth season with a 132-107 record. The Eagles have designs on district and regional titles this year with a veteran team, led by senior forward Nick Jackson. Jackson, 6-foot-3, averaged 16 points and seven rebounds a game last season. Jackson can play several sports and is equally comfortable shooting outside and playing bigger than his height inside. Scott returns four starters and most of its key bench players from last season. Senior guard Eric Pouncy averaged six points and two assists a game. He is a very quick player and will need to lead on both sides of the floor at point guard, Carr said. Senior guard Josh Felts averaged 10 points and two rebounds a game. He shot 47 percent from three-point range and Carr is looking for him to be a more complete player this season. Pete Ohmer and 6foot-7 Luka Jovici was seniors who will look to add to the mix this year. Jovici is a foreign exchange student from Luxembourg. Carr said the team should be athletic and deep this season, and a strong shooting team. The coach said a key to the season is for the team to show toughness in the face of adversity and step up its defense.

Remembering Malala Yousefzai

Malala Yousefzai. MA-LA-LA YOU-SEF ZAI. Remember this 15-year-old Pakistani schoolgirl’s name. This fall she was shot in the head and neck by gunmen who judge that the education of girls is morally wrong. (Western culture, including Christianity, isn’t fully past such an assessment. As far as religious denominations limit women’s full participation, how can we gloat over any superiority to fundamentalist Islam?) Malala is now at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, England, which treats war casualties and specializes in trauma. Remarkably, she is showing no signs of brain damage, although she will be in the hospital for months and need skull reconstruction. One of the bullets chipped her skull, but didn’t penetrate her brain. More luck than Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Yousefzai has spoken out for

the rights of girls and women to attend school since she was 11. She posted a BBC blog in 2009 about oppression under the Vickie Taliban regime. Cimprich Since she was COMMUNITY shot, Pakistanis RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST throughout the country have moved beyond their religious, ethnic and political comfort zones to speak for the rights of girls and women.

to Malala and her colleagues to act. (Throughout U.S. politicians’ debates and stump speeches this fall, I heard little enough about the concrete issues of importance to me: health care and immigration law reform, hunger, carbon emissions, environmental protection. “Nuns on the bus” logged miles where candidates feared to tread.)

Flu vaccine worth needle stick So far this year, only the state of New York reports a high incidence of influenza, or the flu. So, just what does $25 and a needle stick (vaccine) buy me? If you are at least 65 years old the vaccine cuts your risk of death in half over the flu season. The same study also found flu vaccine lowered the risk of hospitalization for stroke and heart disease – cut by 20 percent – and reduced hospitalizations for pneumonia and influenza (30 percent). If you are over the age of six months, your flu shot helps protect all your fellow humans from the flu and its complications. This benefit is called “herd immunity.” Getting back to what is in it for you as an individual, a healthy vaccinated adult under 65 years old has fewer feverish illnesses (20 percent), fewer days of lost work, fewer health provider visits and less antibiotic use. For children over six months as well as adults, the vaccine reduces likelihood influenza illness by 50 to 70 percent. Children between ages 2 and 4 had fewer trips to the emergency room. And their vaccine status is associated with fewer ER trips for their older siblings. Somewhat less protection (40 to 50 percent) is reported for the chronically ill, who may still benefit in reduction of hospital admissions for heart

disease, pneumonia and stroke. A highdose vaccine is available for the elderly. Data on whether it is better Carl Gandola than the regular vaccine is COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST expected soon. COLUMNIST Pregnant women are vulnerable to more severe illness when they catch the flu. Many studies have shown the safety of the vaccine in pregnant women. The Center for Disease Control recommends all pregnant women get the vaccine. Of health workers in 2010, 63 percent got vaccinated. They may have done themselves and their patients a favor. Studies of New Mexico long-term care facilities have shown a 42 percent reduction in health worker sick leave, and reductions in patient flu outbreaks and death. We start shedding viruses a day or two before we develop symptoms. So even doing the right thing and staying at home when sick may not protect your patients as much as your getting vaccinated. Does the vaccine “give me the flu?” It may seem to, since the vaccine is given in the season for viral illnesses. But less than 1 percent of people with injectable vaccine get flu-like symptoms (fever, aches) after

the vaccine. After getting the vaccine protection takes a week or two to develop and even then is not 100 percent protection (generally 50 to 70 percent). It is a misconception that the vaccine causes the flu. Some also fear Guillaine-Barré, a temporary neurologic weakness made infamous with the 1976 swine flu vaccine. A review published this year has found this rare syndrome may happen in two per million doses, with no increased frequency in people under 50 years old. Last year pharmacists and nurse practitioners at a large pharmacy chain vaccinated about 5.5 million people. The majority of people still get vaccinated at a doctor’s office. In a recent year 43 percent of Americans were vaccinated. Medicare and many private insurance plans cover the vaccine. It is not possible yet to predict the severity of flu this season. Over the past 30 years influenza annually has caused around 200,000 hospitalizations and between 3,000 and 49,000 deaths. A needle stick and $25 can reduce your missed days from work, cut your risk of hospitalization and death, and protect friends, family and the chronically ill around you. It is your choice. Dr. Carl Gandola is with St. Elizabeth Physicians’ internal medicine office in Covington.

Does rape justify abortion? In this election cycle, the question was raised as to whether a child conceived in the horrible act of rape should be killed by abortion. Capital punishment for the innocent child for the criminal act of the father ignores the inviolable principle that all human beings have an inalienable right to life. The woman who has conceived a child by the violent act of rape needs understanding, encouragement, and support by family, friends and the entire community. An abortion cannot and will Fred H. not remove the Summe suffering from COMMUNITY such trauma RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST nor provide the woman relief from the violence of rape. “I soon discovered that the aftermath of my abortion continued a long time after the memory of my rape had faded. I felt empty and horrible,” recalls Jackie Bakker, a victim of rape, as reported in Celebrate Life, published by American Life League. “Rape and incest victims actually suffer considerably from the abortion. What are some of the symptoms of rape? The woman feels dirty, guilty, sexually violated, down on herself, angry, and fearful or hateful toward men; she may experience sexual dysfunction, or feel she has lost control of her life,” explains David C. Reardon, director of Eliot Institute for Social Sciences Research. He explains that these are the same symptoms of abortion. “So instead of curing the problem, we are intensifying the same symptoms by offering abortion. Abortion, then, is a ‘cure’ that only aggravates the problem.” As reported by, rape victim Shauna Prewitt, in an open letter, writes: “Although I would not be

able to articulate it for months, I was experiencing a most curious emotion toward the life growing inside of me, an emotion that both enlivened me and caused me to experience an intolerable shame. You see, to my surprise, I did not altogether hate the life growing inside of me. Instead, I felt a sort of kinship, a partnership – perhaps the kind that only develops between those who have suffered together – but, nevertheless, I felt a bond.” “One of the greatest things I’ve learned is that the rapist is not my creator, as some people would have me believe. My value and identity are not established as a ‘product of rape,’ but as a child of God,” claims Rebecca Kiessling, who is the “product” of a rape, and who authored the pamphlet “Conceived in Rape: A Story of Hope.” “As someone who really cares about rape victims,” continues Kiessling, “I want to protect them from the rapist, and from the abortion, and not the baby. A baby is not the worst thing that could ever happen to a rape victim – an abortion is.” Georgette Forney, co-founder of Silent No More Awareness Campaign, in an interview with LifeSiteNews, states that most “women are having abortions because they don’t feel they have the support system to have the child.” The message society is giving to women today, said Forney, is that women aren’t strong enough to handle an unplanned pregnancy. “In all honesty,” she said, “women are the stronger of the two sexes; we can move mountains when it comes to protecting our children. “We’re taking away from women the ability to dig deep down and find the depth of character and strength to care for our children.” No matter how conceived, a child is a unique and precious gift from God.

For a fun food, pick up a pomegranate

The edible portions of the fruit include the seeds and the arils or juicy translucent flesh surrounding the seed. The white pith and rind are not eaten. PROVIDED

If you are looking for a fun food to try at home, pick up a pomegranate. After peeling the tough outer skin, you will find small red jewels that are great to eat out of hand, add to a salad, or combine with any number of ingredients for everything from appetizers to entrees. The edible portions of the fruit include the seeds and the arils or juicy translucent flesh surrounding the seed. The white pith and rind are not eaten. Ripe pomegranates are somewhat square in shape. When choosing a pomegranate, choose one that is heavy for its size. This indicates it has more juice. Also choose one that is free from cracks. A medium-sized pomegranate provides about 105 calories and is

a good source of potassium. It also provides some vitamin C and fiber. There are small amounts of other nutrients in this fruit, too. Pomegranates Diane also have phyMason tochemicals, or EXTENSION plant chemicals, NOTES that have been shown to provide health benefits. The phytochemicals in pomegranates help reduce inflammation in our bodies and protect our cells from oxidation damage. The antioxidants found in pomegranates and other red berries have been linked to reducing heart disease and cancer risk.

The edible seeds can be removed by cutting off the crown end and lightly scoring the skin from top to bottom. Then break open the fruit. Once opened, the seeds can be easily removed by rolling your thumb over them to separate them from the white pith. Be sure to wear an apron or old clothes as pomegranate juice will stain and be difficult to remove. Another suggestion to remove the seeds is to cut off the crown and score the skin. Then submerge the fruit in a bowl of water and divide it into sections. Roll the seeds from the pith while the fruit is submerged under water. The seeds will sink and the pith and peel will float. Remove the pith and peel from the water and drain the edible seeds

through a colander. Whole pomegranates should keep well at room temperature for up to a week and in the refrigerator in an air-tight container for up to three months. Refrigerated seeds will keep for three to five days or may be frozen for up to six months. Juice from the pomegranate can be frozen for long-term storage. When freezing, allow ½-inch headspace for expansion. Frozen juice should be used within one year. Brighten your dishes this fall and winter with the colorful red arils of the pomegranate.

Use leftover turkey for easy stovetop pot pie

Stovetop turkey pot pie

until sugar dissolves and thickens a bit. Let cool and then add that to vodka mixture and stir. Strain and put in pretty bottles. Seal and chill a month in refrigerator (or a couple weeks in freezer) before using. To use, serve straight over ice chips, mix with sparkling wine or mineral water and a lemon curl, toss with fresh

fruit, serve over ice cream, frozen yogurt or simple cake. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. Email her at with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line. Call 513-248-7130, ext. 356.

Yesterday I was sorting through the boxes of outdoor lights for our trees and wondering if we’re going to have to purchase more lights. The trees have grown quite a bit since last year, including a small potted evergreen that Ron Wilson of Natorp’s, Rita our garden Heikenfeld guru, gave RITA’S KITCHEN me. I may put that one on the sideboard in the kitchen. The holidays really are fast approaching, aren’t they? Hanukkah, Christmas, Boxing Day and Kwanzaa are all times to celebrate family, friends and food. I’ll be sharing my best recipes, along with yours, so send your faves to me along with the story of why the recipe is special.

Stove top turkey pot pie can help use up those Thanksgiving leftovers. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

To finish in oven: Pour mixture after it’s cooked into a sprayed, shallow casserole. Top with pie crust and bake at 425 degrees until golden brown. You can also bake it with a biscuit topping. Follow directions for baking biscuits and use that temperature: Put the biscuits on top of the pie and bake.

Peas and carrots, as many as you like Good optional add-ins: sliced mushrooms, potatoes, etc.

Melt butter and stir in flour. Cook to get the raw taste of the flour out, but don’t let brown. Add garlic, thyme, broth and milk. Cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened. It will look a bit lumpy at first, but will smooth out. Add turkey, sausage and vegetables. Cook until heated through, about 10-15 minutes. Season to taste. Ladle over hot baked biscuits that you’ve split into two, or into puff pastry shells that you’ve baked ahead. You can also put the filling in a pie plate or casserole, cut out a puff pastry or pie dough top to fit and pre-bake the top. Lay on top of casserole to serve.


This Italian lemon liqueur is an elegant addition to your party or dinner drink offerings, but is expensive to buy. The great thing about this is it keeps just about forever in the freezer. Sometimes I’ll mix limes and lemons together. Make now for gift giving. Check out my blog for photos. 2 generous pounds lemons, thick-skinned

4 cups good quality vodka 3 cups sugar 3 cups water

Pour vodka in large glass jar. Remove peel from lemons with a vegetable peeler. Take off all of the pith – that’s the white part – from the peel as it is really bitter. If you can’t get it all off, do the best you can. Place peel in jar with vodka and cover. Let sit at room temperature for at least one week. Some recipes recommend a dark place. I like to leave it out on my counter just to see the color change and smell the lemon aroma when I open the jar. The vodka will take on the color and flavor of the lemon as it steeps. You can leave the lemon peels in the vodka for a few weeks. Now bring the sugar and water to a simmer and stir

up getting burned. That’s what happened to Tonya Coffey of Fairfield Township, who needs to stay in touch with her 28-year-old daughter. Her daughter has been in prison for the past year and a half and stays connected to the family by telephone. “The main factor here is she has a 31⁄2-year-old daughter that we have. For her sake we want to maintain that communication. That’s really important to us and it’s important to her. She has a mommy and wants to talk to her,” Coffey said Trying to save money on pre-paid calls from prison, Coffey saw an ad from a company claiming it could save her big money on such calls. “They responded quickly after I made my $194 payment. I subscribed to a two-year plan,” Coffey

said. But Coffey ran into trouble with the jail’s regular phone network Howard when she Ain tried to use HEY HOWARD! this new company’s service. “The jail’s phone network asked me a lot of questions I couldn’t answer. So they would not permit me to have an account,” Coffey said. The company Coffey paid advertised a 100 percent money-back guarantee. But although she wrote them seeking a refund, she didn’t get it. Then she wrote them she had contacted me and that got her a reply. “They did send me an e-mail back saying they were having trouble with their claims processor, with technical issues, to refund the money and they would be getting back to me. That was the last correspondence I got,” Coffey said. Coffey got that response back in June and says now she can’t even reach the company by

week (91 weeks)

phone. “That’s no longer in operation. Any email that I now send them comes back undeliverable,” she said. Unfortunately, Coffey paid this company with her debit card so the money came right out of her bank account. She didn’t use a credit card because she didn’t have one. But if you’re planning on buying something over the Internet, you need to have a credit card so you can dispute the charge with the credit card company. In this case, since Coffey didn’t get the service claimed – and failed to get the promised refund – she could have received her money from a credit card company. If you can’t qualify for a credit card, that should not stop you. You can get a secured credit card from a local bank. For instance, one local bank charges $24 per year for such a card and allows you to deposit as little as $300 into a savings account at the bank. Your credit line will be tied to the amount of money in your savings account. The bank charge is relatively modest when you consider the protection it offers should you need to buy something over the Internet.

It’s time to pick out a tree

The Scotch pine’s needles are shorter than those of the white pine and the color can vary from bright green to dark green to some trees that exhibit more bluish tones. FILE PHOTO Shearing gives it a denser form than the Fraser, which is a naturally pyramid-shaped tree, with even shorter needles than the Douglas. Both trees have good needle retention and a pleasant scent. Another fir that has been grown locally in recent years is the Canaan Fir, which also makes a great, soft-textured, pleasantly scented tree. Spruces are also sold, but they usually don’t hold their needles as long as other species. For the freshest tree, the ideal choice is one that has been locally grown. It’s also fun to go pick out and cut your own tree from a local Christmas tree farm. The Kentucky

Christmas Tree Association has a list of member tree farms on their Web site, This site also provides detailed information about each variety of Christmas tree. If you plan to purchase a tree from a tree lot, it might be better to purchase that tree early for the purpose of getting it in water and out of drying weather conditions as soon as possible. Once you get your tree home, it’s a good idea to cut off one or two inches from the bottom of the trunk. Place the tree in a bucket of warm water and store it away from drying sun or wind, preferably in a cool garage or enclosed sun porch where

house, be careful to place your tree away from sources of heat such as fireplaces, stoves, heat registers or radiators. Keeping the thermostat set at a lower temperature will help to prevent the tree from drying out too quickly. Keep the tree well-watered. A fresh tree can easily drink a gallon or more of water each day, so using a tree-stand that holds at least that much water will make your job easier.


Question: Which variety of Christmas tree will hold its needles the best for the holidays? Answer: In Kentucky, many Christmas tree farmers plant white pine and Scotch pine. The white pine retains its needles, which have a soft, flexible texture. The trees are often sheared into a pyramidal shape, Mike though this Klahr often HORTICULTURE makes the CONCERNS tree very dense, which makes it difficult to hang large ornaments. The Scotch pine’s needles are shorter than those of the white pine and the color can vary from bright green to dark green to some trees that exhibit more bluish tones. The species retains its needles well and resists drying. Douglasfirs and Fraser firs are also popular choices at local tree lots. The Douglasfir has dark green or blue green needles that are shorter and softer than pine needles.

Please take notice that Duke Energy Kentucky, Inc. has applied to the Kentucky Public Service Commission for approval to revise its Demand Side Management (DSM) rate for electric service and gas service for residential and commercial customers. Duke Energy Kentucky’s current monthly DSM rate for residential gas customers is ($0.061391) per hundred cubic feet and for non-residential gas customers is $0.000000 per hundred cubic feet. Duke Energy Kentucky’s current monthly DSM rate for residential electric customers is $0.003093 per kilowatt-hour and for non-residential customers is $0.001036 per kilowatt-hour for distribution service and $0.000761 per kilowatt-hour for transmission service. Duke Energy Kentucky seeks approval to revise these rates as follows: Duke Energy Kentucky’s monthly DSM rate for residential gas customers would increase to ($0.039396) per hundred cubic feet and for non-residential gas customers would remain at $0.000000 per hundred cubic feet. Duke Energy Kentucky’s monthly DSM rate for residential electric customers would decrease to $0.001988 per kilowatt-hour and for non-residential customers would increase to $0.001104 per kilowatt-hour for distribution service and would increase to $0.001070 per kilowatt-hour for transmission service. The rate contained in this notice is the rate proposed by Duke Energy Kentucky. However, the Public Service Commission may order a rate to be charged that differs from this proposed rate. Such action may result in a rate for consumers other than the rate in this notice. The foregoing rates reflect a proposed decrease in electric revenues of approximately $0.72 million or 0.23% over current total electric revenues and an increase of $1.41 million or 1.55% over current gas revenues. Any corporation, association, body politic or person may by motion within thirty (30) days after publication or mailing of notice of the proposed rate changes request leave to intervene. The motion shall be submitted to the Public Service Commission, 211 Sower Boulevard, P.O. Box 615, Frankfort, Kentucky 40602, and shall set forth the grounds for the request including the status and interest of the party. Intervenors may obtain copies of the application and testimony by contacting Duke Energy Kentucky through Ms. Kristen Cocanougher, Duke Energy, 139 East Fourth Street, 1212 Main, Cincinnati, Ohio 45201-0960. A copy of the application is also available for public inspection at Duke Energy Kentucky’s office at 4580 Olympic Boulevard, Erlanger, Kentucky 41018. CE-0000534360

Animal Crackers in my soup, psyche As much as I love them, I can’t look at a package of animal crackers without flinching. Why? Well, sit back because I’m going to tell you. It all started on the first day of kindergarten. We were given construction paper name tags with an animal cracker glued on for decoration. The teacher had Marsie Hall us sit crossNewbold legged on the MARSIE’S floor while she MENAGERIE gave a little welcome speech that I must not have been listening to very closely because I was busy eating the animal cracker off of my name tag. Well, more like gnawing, since I didn’t even bother to take it off. What I did hear, however, quite plainly was, “Make sure to wear your name tags to school tomorrow.” I looked down at mine in horror. There was nothing but a big, wet slobber mark where the animal cracker used to be. Well, now I’d done it! Obviously, I couldn’t go back to school because I’d eaten the animal cracker off of my name tag. Only 5 years old and my life was ruined. It was just the first day and already I’d flunked out.

They all might taste the same, but choosing the right animal cracker was of the utmost importance to a young Marsie Hall Newbold. PROVIDED

Mother was ever-practical. “We’ll just buy a box of animal crackers and glue one on to replace the one you ate,” she reasoned. More panic ensued because I couldn’t remember exactly what kind of animal had been on the name tag. I just knew that if I showed up at school sporting a monkeyshaped animal cracker instead of the buffalo-shaped one I was issued, the teacher was going to notice and send me to the principal’s office where I would promptly be hooked up to “the paddling machine.” (This was an urban legend my greatgrandmother conjured up.) Nothing she said could convince me that I wouldn’t get graded on that sort of thing.

On the way home from school we stopped at Enslen’s grocery and bought a box of every brand of animal crackers. Then, we agreed that this was a matter of such grave importance, we wouldn’t do anything more until Daddy came home from work. Surely, he’d know what to do. After dinner, my father sorted through the cookies and laid one of each shape side by side across the dining room table. Using the magnifying glass that Uncle Charlie had given me for Christmas, I pored over each one. It was impossible to be sure. Was it the hippo or the elephant? The camel or the water buffalo? The tiger or the bear? How my parents got me

to settle on one without getting the Fort Thomas Police Department’s sketch artist involved, I’ll never know. While the replacement animal cookie dried on my nametag, I spent a restless night in my canopy bed tossing, turning and going over different scenarios in my mind. I just knew that Mrs. Pogue was going to greet me at the door asking: “Marsie Hall, is that a buffalo on your nametag? Where is the elephant that was assigned to you? What have you done with it? Speak up! What’s that you say? You ate it? Do you realize what you have done? You are a disgrace to the morning kindergarten. Pack up your crayons and get out. Never darken the door of Robert D. Johnson grade school ever again!” Mother drove me to school the next day. I wanted her to wait and keep the car running so I could make a quick escape, but the teacher never noticed. Imagine that!
