Resolution opposes bridge toll Commissioner says tolls are taxes By Stephanie Salmons

UNION — Although the city of Union is, according to Mapquest, some 15 miles away from Covington and the Brent Spence Bridge that spans the Ohio River to Cincinnati, city leaders approved a resolution opposing the use of tolls as a funding mechanism for the reconstruction or replacement of the bridge.

The City Commission voted 3-1 to approve the resolution. As the resolution reads, the city calls on members of the Kentucky General Assembly to “reject efforts to proceed with the placement of tolls for the construction, reconstruction, or replacement of the Brent Spence Bridge.” Additionally, the resolution calls on members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives to recognize this as a “high priority corridor” and the project as one of “national significance which would qualify it for funding with 80 percent fed-

eral participation.” The resolution also directs the suspension of budgeted public funds to organizations lobbying or advocating the use of tolls. Commissioner Bryan Miller, the sole incumbent on the newly seated commission, presented the resolution at the Jan. 7 City Commission meeting. “I think the federal government built our highways and bridges and that’s why I’m submitting the resolution for adoption,” Miller said at the meeting. He said he’s “just trying to put pressure on our legislature,

our elected officials to do something.” In a phone conversation, Miller said tolls are taxes. “It’s an additional tax on top of what we already pay on gasoline.” By introducing the resolution to the city, Miller said it shows Union is “in solidarity” with other cities and will tell elected officials they’re “taking a stand. We don’t want to be taxed any more.” New Commissioner Deanna Kline cast the lone “no” vote. Kline said in a follow-up message that supporting the busi-


ness community of Northern Kentucky is “so vital to our region’s success.” According to Kline, the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, as well as the governors of Kentucky and Ohio, “have indicated that tolls must be part of the solution or the bridge project will not move forward. Therefore, given the importance of the bridge to our local prosperity, I didn’t feel it was appropriate to support a resolution contradicting their conclusions regarding tolls.” See TOLL, Page A2

Students discuss solutions to shootings English class reacts to current events, engages in debate

Tanner Wolff, left, and Ryan Brown, seniors at Boone County High School, discuss in their honors English class what schools might do to prevent school shootings.

By William Croyle

FLORENCE — While debate continues nationwide among politicians, educators and parents about how to handle gun violence in schools, some outside-the-box ideas were conceived and discussed Friday by another concerned group: students. The 15 students in Alice Lambert’s Senior IV English Honors class at Boone County High School tried to find solu-


tions, no matter how out-ofthe-ordinary, to solve the issue of keeping students safe in case of a possible shooting. The class discussion tapped into the students’ critical

thinking skills and generated debate. They thought of everything from installing impenetrable steel doors in every classroom to having guns inside teachers’

desk drawers that would open only if an emergency school alarm were triggered. “They’re analyzing and synthesizing information and being creative with it,” Lambert said. “Also, many of them don’t keep up with current events, so hopefully this will encourage them to do that.” The shooting deaths of 26 people, including 20 students, on Dec. 14 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., had an impact on the students here at Boone, as it did on students across the country. “It was a very solemn time here. Very sad,” said senior

UNION — After getting the OK from the city commission, the Union Community Theatre will construct a stationary stage in the Union Community Building. The theater group once held performances at Ryle High School. Since they were no longer able to use the school, they needed a place to have shows, city events coordinator and UCT board member Karen Franxman said. “There’s not a lot of storage at the community building,” she said. “Knowing that, I just thought with the way we use it for events – and we’ve had wedding receptions there – it would make sense to have a sort of stationary stage of a certain size

Alan Daly of Independence presented a similar draft resolution at the Independence City Council meeting on the same night. After Daly’s presentation, Independence Mayor Chris Moriconi expressed his displeasure at the thought of paying tolls to cross the bridge, and said bridge improvements should be funded by the federal government. Moriconi said the resolution could be presented for approval at the council’s next meeting on Feb. 4. Reporter Amy Scalf contributed.

Ryan Brown. “I just don’t understand why anybody would want to kill little kids.” With that tragedy fresh in their minds, and to fulfill a nonfiction requirement for the new Common Core standards, Lambert took a unique approach by having the students read a Newsweek article from 2009 titled “The Columbine Generation.” Students then tied that article to ones written after the Sandy Hook shooting, including stances by the National Rifle Association and stories about teachers taking part in free guntraining programs in other states. Students broke into five groups to brainstorm. Other ideas they had included installing metal

detectors, having more exits from each classroom, having a firehouse-type pole in each classroom that students could slide down to a safe room, implementing the new ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evaluate) training and arming staff with guns (lethal and nonlethal). Lambert played the role of devil’s advocate, questioning whether their ideas would protect students enough or if they were an overreaction. She wanted students to see the pros and cons of their ideas, and to see them from the perspectives of several groups with a stake in the issue, including school board members, principals, teachers, parents and students. “If you can keep different perspectives, you will be able to make wiser choices as you get older,” Lambert told them. One of the most popular ideas among the stu-

dents was to have teachers move to specific checkpoints in the school with nonlethal weapons (such as a bean bag gun) when an alarm sounds. Another was the idea of having guns in teachers’ desks that could open only when an emergency alarm goes off. The teachers would be trained to use the guns. “I think some of these ideas are feasible,” Ryan said. “It’s really been an interesting and intriguing subject to talk about.” Senior Carly Chalfant said all of the ideas were good and enjoyed the discussion but said most of them were improbable because of the cost. “I feel like anybody can get hurt at any time, no matter what you do to try and prevent it,” she said. “We do need something, which is why we have lockdowns. But we just don’t have the money for a lot of these ideas.”

built with storage underneath for additional staging. The stage can then be expanded when the theater group has a performance. Sets are costly to build and building a stage for each performance “would be a huge cost for every show.” “I think it’s important to bring the arts to the community and stay in the community,” she said. “Since we didn’t have a home any longer to have our shows, we didn’t want to just stop. So we thought ‘Let’s just make lemonade out of lemons’ until we get a theater of our own.” The Union Community

Theatre will pay for the stage construction and Franxman said they hope to seat between 120 and 130 people per performance. A fundraiser for the group will be Jan. 17. UCT will receive 25 percent from orders at City Barbecue, 8026 Burlington Pike, Florence. A flier, found online at, must be presented when ordering. The UCT will next stage a youth production of “Seussical.” For more information about the group visit the website or email

his best interests. “I want to make sure you understand the dangers and disadvantages of representing yourself,” Frohlich said. Both of court-appointed attorneys, Joanne Lynch and Matt Ryan, have much more experience in the courtroom, the judge said. Someone unskilled in the courtroom might not know what information is admissible, when to object, or how to question witnesses, he said. “You can’t turn around and make the argument to the court of appeals that ‘I want a new trial because I represented myself,’” Frohlich said. “You can’t just get up on the stand and simply tell your story.” Moore told the judge he understood the risks. Asked if he had any legal experience, Moore told the judge that he had testified in court while working as a Warren County Sheriff’s deputy. Moore worked for the department from 2000 to 2004 until he was accused of cooking methamphetamine, tampering with records and stealing marijuana from the evidence room. He later pleaded guilty to theft and was convicted on one drug charge. He received 90 days in jail, three years probation and drug treatment. In 2005, he served several months in state prison for probation violations. Commonwealth’s Attorney Linda Tally Smith

said that while she does not object to Moore being appointed co-counsel, she wants to make sure his role in the trial will be defined before it begins. A majority of the witnesses in the case are expected to be Moore’s family members, including his brother, niece, exwives, daughter and others, she said. “If he’s asking to crossexamine family members, then we’re going to have a problem with that,” Smith said. Several of the family members have told prosecutors that they would feel intimidated or that they would feel scared if Moore was doing the questioning, Smith said. Lynch, Moore’s attorney, said that it’s too early to say what role Moore will play. “Though several defendants have represented themselves in Boone County, this would be the first time a defendant has acted as co-counsel, Smith said. The practice is referred to as hybrid representation. It stems from the defendant’s right to counsel and their right to waive that counsel and represent themselves, she said. In some cases, defendants represent themselves with their court-appointed attorneys acting as back up counsel. But in hybrid representation, the attorney typically takes a more active role.

BURLINGTON — A Union man will get to act as his own attorney during his double-murder trial later this year, a judge ruled Jan. 11. Michael Moore, 42, who is facing the death penalty, is accused of fatally shooting his parents in their Union home nearly three years ago. Moore and his two public defenders had petitioned Boone Circuit Judge Tony Frohlich to let Moore be co-counsel during the trial, now set for May. Moore, a former Warren County Sheriff’s deputy, told the judge Jan. 11 that he doesn’t want to fire his attorneys and go it alone at trial, but wants to be able to act as an equal with them. “The biggest reason would be that, obviously, the ultimate penalty is in play here, meaning life or death. While I have the utmost confidence in my attorneys, I’m not comfortable not having a say with something with such dire consequences. “I do not want to represent myself solely. I just want to be appointed cocounsel so that I can have a say or at least voice my opinions or objections in trial strategy and everything that goes along with it.” Investigators say that Moore shot both his father, Warren Moore, 66, and his mother, Madge Moore, 65, in the head the night of June 12, 2009, in their Indian Hill Drive home. Michael Moore called 911 to report the shootings saying that an intruder shot his parents and himself. Moore was shot in the leg and groin. Investigators believe he shot himself to cover up the crime. Warren Moore was the Union city administrator and had served four terms as the city’s mayor. Before deciding whether Michael Moore could help represent himself, the judge warned him that it might not be in

Cooper student has poster win By Justin B. Duke

UNION — Jessica Dunham has made a tradition for herself. The Cooper High School junior won first place in her age group in the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s Adopt-aHighway Poster Contest for the third straight year. Although Dunham is happy with getting the award annually, it’s still a great honor for her. “It’s always a surprise,” she said. “There’s so Dunham much great competition.” This year’s entry represents Dunham’s growth as an artist, she said. “I’m trying to simplify things. All art doesn’t have to be overcrowded and chaotic,” Dunham said. Since the entry is supposed to represent the Adopt-a-Highway program, those who enter feel obligated to have a car in their posters, but Dunham was happy to come up with an idea that didn’t require a car. “I was able to get away without it,” she said. As part of winning the contest, Dunham’s poster will be in the transportation cabinet’s 2013 calendar and she got to attend an award reception at the Kentucky Historical Museum.

in art and is looking at attending the Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio after she finishes high school. Until then, Dunham plans to work hard at balancing art and the rest of her high school studies. “I’ll be drawing as much as I can,” she said. Since Dunham is a junior, she can enter the contest one more time and has the opportunity for a clean sweep for her high school career. She plans to attempt a fourth straight win, but recognizes the competition will be just as tough as it is every year. “It wouldn’t surprise me if I did get second place, and that’s OK,” Dunham said.

FLORENCE — Dads are flocking to Yealey Elementary. The school had the kickoff for its Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) program Jan. 8. The program is designed to get fathers, uncles, grandfathers and other father figures involved in their students’ education. “It encourages male role models in the school,” said Michelle Arnold, who heads the school’s Family Resource Center. The kickoff was designed to introduce fathers to the program and encourage them to sign up to volunteer at the

school, Arnold said. “They volunteer for a half day a month,” she said. Volunteers can do a wide variety of tasks including directing parking lot traffic, making copies, reading one-on-one with a student and monitoring the cafeteria during lunch. “We just put them everywhere,” Arnold said. Yealey administration was eager to start the program because of how successful similar initiatives have been in other schools, she said. “Statistics shows when the programs kick off, academic achievement goes up,” Arnold said. The kickoff night brought in more than 100 father figures.

“We ran out of seats in the cafeteria,” said Tom Work, the parent volunteer who is helping head up the program. The position has earned Work the title of “Top Dog.” Work is excited to see the program starting because it’s proven to reduce behavior problems and increase performance in school. “There’s just a myriad of positive effects,” he said. With the kickoff event out of the way, it’s time for the men to start having a major presence at Yealey, Work said. “I’m looking forward to the program getting running and having an impact in the school,” he said.

Future Farmers group grows By Nicole Reed Contributor

Grow. That’s what started off Cooper Future Farmers of America’s trip to 85th National Future Farmers of America Convention and Expo in Indianapolis. It’s a place where all 50 states plus Puerto Rico and the U.S Virgin Islands come together as one. Whether you were there to grow your chapter or to grow yourself, that was this year’s mission. The Cooper chapter embodied that mission when participating in the Future Farmers of America Rally to Fight Hun-

ger. More than 10,000 members, advisers and volunteers from across the country worked together in hourlong shifts over a three-day period at the Lucas Oil stadium packing food to benefit Kids Against Hunger. Members assembled over one million meals to fight hunger and malnutrition both locally and around the world. The meals were divided with half staying in central Indiana and the other half sent overseas to fight hunger in Haiti. The opening session for the convention featured keynote speaker Scott Hamilton, a U.S Olympic Gold Medalist and

hall of fame inductee. He spoke about how he grew as a person as a survivor of both cancer and a brain tumor. Hearing him talk about a tragic thing that happened to him and how he never let that bring him down inspired the students to grow as individuals. Students took a tour of Dow Agrowsciences . The tour demonstrated how Dow develops better crops and more effective pest management solutions for farmers across the U.S. while improving the nutritional quality of products.

Society supports holiday drive By Alicia Boone Contributor

St. Timothy kicked off another great school year at Kindergarten Camp. Pictured here is kindergarten student Addison Majewski holding her camp map. During kindergarten camp, all of the students completed assessments, met their classmates and learned about all the fun they are going to have in kindergarten.

The month of October was a charitable time for members of Cooper High School’s National Honor Society. After weeks of preparation members brought gifts to be donated to Samaritan’s Purse yearly holiday drive Operation Christmas Child. Fifth shoe boxes were filled with gifts for children ranging from 2 to14 years old. Although

this was a mandatory service project to further unite NHS as a whole, members went beyond expectations; some gave two boxes, some wrote letters to their recipients and many took the time to wrap their gifts. “Operation Christmas Child really allowed the group to come together and help the community in a positive way,” said Connor Bechtol, president of NHS. “Our members put a lot of thought and creativity into each box. The event was a

fantastic experience.” For the members of NHS, the Christmas boxes they donated were more than a few presents encased in cardboard. The gifts represented hope, generosity and encouragement to the children that will be receiving them and illustrated a unified and positive group of students at Cooper High School.

Jaguars growing at key part of season By James Weber

RULE THE MATS By James Weber

BOONE COUNTY — The Ryle wrestling team may not have dominating athletes this year like a Bryan Peace or the Ruschell brothers, but the Raiders are succeeding this year with plenty of quality depth. The Raiders have six wrestlers who were ranked between fourth and seventh in the state in their weight classes by in its last report Dec. 25. Two of the six medaled in the state meet last year, and Ryle has six returning state qualifiers. Senior Gus Adams has been the top performer so far this year. He was 32-3 through Jan. 12 with 22 pins. Adams was the conference champion at 120 pounds in December and is ranked sixth in the state. He finished fifth in the state at 113 last season. Adams has 134 career wins, 11th all-time in school history. Sophomore Jake Erdman was second at 126 in the confer-

UNION — The Cooper boys basketball team is entering its biggest week of the season. The Jaguars enter that stretch playing well despite a 50-44 loss at Holmes Jan. 11, which snapped a four-game winning streak and dropped their record to 12-4. Head coach Tim Sullivan saw plenty of positives in the defeat and felt the Jaguars played well enough to win against the Bulldogs, who are 18-0 and the lone undefeated boys team in Kentucky. “I don’t think we necessarily lost that game, Holmes made the plays down the stretch,” Sullivan said. “They’re obviously a really good team and our guys showed a lot of toughness on the road. We were down nine and fought back, gave ourselves a chance.” Cooper hosts Boone County Thursday, Jan. 17, part of a stretch of three games in a row against 33rd District competition. Cooper plays at Conner Jan. 23 and at Ryle Jan. 25. Cooper is 2-0 so far in district seeding and plays Boone again Feb. 8. Against Holmes, the Jaguars led by as many as five points in the first half and trailed by 10 before fighting back in the fourth quarter. Cooper got within one point at 44-43. Cooper, which allows only 45 points per game, limited the high-powered Holmes offense to 50 points, 18 below its average. The Jaguars’ chief task was defending sophomore point guard James Bolden, who has already become one of the top point guards in the state in his first season as a starter. Bolden, who has many games in the high-20s this year in points, scored 17 points, five in the second half. “We’re going to put one guy on him, but the other four guys have to help out,” Sullivan said. “He is that good and you better have five guys ready to guard him and we needed to have everyone do their job and guard as one.” The main defending job went to Cooper junior Aaron Morgan, who spent a lot of time last fall defending topflight wide receivers but is still working himself into basketball shape after helping the Jaguars to the Class 5A state

final. As a result, he has struggled in court defense. At least four of Bolden’s 17 points came against other defenders. “I gave him a bit of a challenge this week and told him we needed that guy back,” Sullivan said. “He did a phenomenal job tonight.” Zach McNeil had 13 points to lead Cooper. The Jaguars’ top scoring guard reached his 1,000th career point in December in his first season after transferring from Walton-Verona. “He’s a calm, stable kid,” Sullivan said. “He’s grown and he’s learning how to play. He plays so hard. We all know he can shoot it but it’s what he does on the glass and in the paint. He guards and he rebounds. He does so much for us and he’s unselfish to a fault. We need him to shoot the ball more.” Seniors Louis Maniacci and Drew Shelton combined for 11 points and14 rebounds, as they make up one of the tallest inside combos in the area. Maniacci was limited with an ankle injury. Sullivan is looking to get the Jaguars healthy going into the district stretch. Cooper, like many other schools, has been battling the flu bug as well as physical bumps and bruises. “Our key is to continue to get better on offense and getting healthy,” Sullivan said. “Our defense has been solid and we just have to keep getting better offensively.” Follow James on Twitter @RecorderWeber and check out more coverage at

The freshmen duo jumpstarted the Norse offense early in the game with a barrage of three-pointers, and by the time the final buzzer sounded, NKU had buried 13 shots from behind the arc. “Those two freshmen came in and gave us a big lift when we started off a bit sluggish, and the momentum they helped generate carried us in the first half,” Bezold said after his team improved to 4-9 overall, 2-3 in the A-Sun. “A great crowd was here, we were on the A-Sun network, and we played very well.

Saints prosper with basketball balance By James Weber



Like many Division III basketball programs, the Thomas More College women’s basketball team has become a collection of prep all-stars from the surrounding region. Few have gathered local talent as well as the Saints in recent years, and they are having another nationally ranked season after beating St. Vincent 63-50 Jan. 12 at Connor Convocation Center. “We joke about the rivalries but we put that aside and now we’re all together,” said Campbell County graduate Katie Kitchen. TMC improved to 14-1 overall and 8-0 in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference with an emphatic win over the visiting

Bearcats, who were second place in the league and dropped to 10-5, 6-2. The Saints had a 41-9 run in the game after trailing by six and led by as much as 26 points. “It was a good game, a hard-fought game,” senior Allison Long said. “We played our best and did what we could.” Long, a Conner graduate, leads the team in scoring at 17 points per game, and makes 2.5 threepointers a contest. She said the Saints’ main fault in the game was too many turnovers. “We have our moments but we throw the ball around and get lazy at times, so we have to get better at that and improve our rebounding,” she said. “It’s how we’ve always played, at a fast pace, so that’s one of our advantages. That does come into some of our turnovers, but tonight we had too many that had nothing to do with that.” The Saints run behind local prep stars, with Kitchen (Campbell County) and Devin Beasley (Conner) also averaging in double figures. Jenny Burgoyne (McAuley) joins them in the top four in scoring. The Saints have seven Northern Kentucky players, three imports from strong Cincinnati programs, two from Louisville and one from Carroll County. Six of the Saints have played in the Kentucky Sweet 16. That winning tradition

has carried over to Thomas More over the years. They hope for big things down the road. TMC is ranked 10th in the nation and its only loss has been to a higher-ranked Calvin College team. The Saints would like to make their deepest advancement in the NCAA tourney. “It’s fun, being our senior year,” Long said. “I wouldn’t want it any other way.” The men’s team has a highly balanced lineup, with 10 players averaging between five and 11 points a game. TMC rallied to beat St. Vincent 64-59 to improve to 13-3 and 6-1, pulling into a tie with St. Vincent and Bethany atop the league. TMC trailed by10 early in the second half but dominated most of the period with a 33-16 run to lead by seven. The Saints lived up to their scoring averages, as no one scored in double figures but eight players had between five and nine points and another two Saints scored a field goal. Brandon Housley, a key part of Holmes’ state title team in 2009, has joined the team this season and started every game. He’s the lone Northern Kentucky product to get regular playing time. Both Saints teams have three PAC road games at Bethany, Grove City and Chatham before returning home to face Waynesburg Saturday, Jan. 26.

Thousands of jobs created in Boone

Job seekers in Boone County are starting 2013 with a significant advantage over the last year. Through the work of Northern Kentucky TriCounty Economic Development Corp. (Tri-ED), many new and existing companies have created and committed to creating thousands of new jobs in Boone County. Tri-ED, the economic development department for Boone, Kenton and Campbell counties, drives economic development efforts to attract new companies and support existing businesses with expansions in our three-county region. Over the last 25 years, Tri-ED has successfully created a diverse business community in Northern Kentucky based on a target industry focus in: 1. Advanced manufacturing; 2. Office/tech, aviation and; 3. Distribution/logistics/E-commerce. In 2012, manufacturers like ZF Rubber & Plastics and Mazak invested in their existing facilities in Boone County and created hundreds of new jobs.

Transportation and logistics companies such as DHL expanded facilities and created jobs at the Cincinnati/ Northern Kentucky International Airport. Connecticut-based NorAm and CaliforniaGary W. based i-Herb are two Moore fast-growing e-comCOMMUNITY merce companies that RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST moved their operations to Hebron creating new jobs and now occupying prime real estate in Boone County. E-tailer and online pharmacy added dozens of hightech and pharmaceutical jobs in Florence. Based on its population and data compiled by Tri-ED, Boone County had more economic development projects in 2011 than any other county in the United States with a population less than 200,000. In total, 18 projects were successfully completed in Boone

County. Our track record is impressive and much of our success is built on facilitating and fostering expansions of our existing business base. As chair of Tri-ED’s Board of Directors and chair of the business retention and expansion committee, I was pleased to assist with the launch of NKY Boost, an enhanced effort to serve our existing businesses in Boone County and Northern Kentucky. Our goal is to visit primary industry employers in Boone County on a regular basis. We will be meeting with companies that directly create jobs in fields of advanced manufacturing and technology. Through these meetings, we will help our existing companies address workforce needs, identify expansion opportunities and facilitate solutions to any challenges they are facing. Duke Energy’s sponsorship and ongoing support of this program is a groundbreaking move for the community and will have tremendous impact on our business base. The city of Florence has signed on

Legislature tackles pension

With the holiday season behind us, the General Assembly returned to Frankfort last week to prepare to deal with several crucial issues facing our commonwealth. The first task of the 2013 Legislative Session was to elect leadership for our respective caucuses, receive committee assignments and essentially get our footing as we get ready for the work ahead of us. It’s also a time of transition as we welcome new members to our ranks as they get prepare for their first legislative session. Although new questions arise from time to time, the 2013 session finds us dealing with some of the same issues that have been discussed and debated for several sessions. First and foremost is the need for comprehensive tax reform, which must be done if we hope to keep Kentucky on pace with states like Tennessee and Indiana in job creation. We have done some work on Kentucky’s tax code, most recently during the 2005 Legislative Session. But most of our tax code is still written for the economies of the 1940s to 1970s, and we expect some bills to be filed based on the recommendations of a task force created by the governor. The General Assembly is also expected to take up recommendations

from a separate task force to bring our pension system under control. National publications have ranked Kentucky’s public pension system as one of the worst in the nation, and we curSal Santoro rently face an unCOMMUNITY funded liability of RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST more than $33 billion. It is expected that legislation will be filed based on the committee’s report very early in this session. Discussion will more than likely also focus on minor changes to the so-called pill mill bill, which passed in the 2012 Special Session. Although the bill’s goal was to reduce the number of pain pills being sold illegally on the streets, it’s essential we balance the needs of patients who legitimately use pain medication and the physicians who follow the law in prescribing them. As in every session, other issues are likely to come up, such as the possibility of legislation dealing with special taxing districts. I will keep you posted on other bills of importance as we move forward in this session. I welcome your comments and

Cliff notes: Time to cut the spending If 100 people were drowning and you had the ability to save 99, would you? Of course you would. We didn’t do anything nearly as heroic in Congress earlier this month but the question of saving as many as we can from a potentially devastating consequence was relevant. The question was: do you stand aside and let taxes increase for everyone, or do you try to save as many taxpayers as possible before they do? I chose to try to do something. If our nation had gone over the “fiscal cliff” on Jan. 1, the average Kentucky family would have paid $2,200 more in taxes. Important federal priorities like the Department of Defense and the National Institutes of Health would have suffered from indiscriminate cuts. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the combination would have sparked a prolonged recession and further unemployment. There is no doubt that this situation was unfolding at the end of the year due to a severe lack of leadership in the White House. Some in my



political party counseled that because the president would achieve the tax hikes he campaigned for by doing absolutely nothing, we should just stand aside and Mitch let him own the reMcConnell sulting chaos. The thought was that COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST Americans would COLUMNIST personally experience the damage of the president’s agenda and urgently understand the need to go in the other direction. I had to try to do something to prevent Kentucky families from incurring massive income tax hikes. Voters may have re-elected President Obama but my constituents didn’t, and I wasn’t willing to force Kentucky families to pay a $2,000 price so we could make a political point. I knew that out of 4.4 million residents in the Bluegrass State, only about 5,800 tax filers have an income above $500,000. If I was able to perA publication of

suade Vice President Biden to cut taxes for everyone below $450,000 for married couples and $400,000 for individuals, I could ensure that 99.7 percent of Kentuckians were spared from an income tax increase. It worked. Was the deal perfect? Absolutely not. Was it necessary? Yes. Did it solve our financial problems in Washington as the president suggested during the campaign that it would? Not by a long shot. The real problem is Washington’s out-of-control spending. We have a $16.4 trillion debt and an administration that hasn’t seen a federal spending program it’s willing to part with. If the president refuses to act responsibly and work with us to rein in spending then we will do everything in our power to force him. The tax issue is behind us. Now is the time to focus on cutting spending in Washington so we can preserve the country we love for future generations to enjoy. Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, is the minority leader of the U.S. Senate.

Healthy lifestyle habits decrease risk of osteoporosis Osteoporosis is not just a disease for the elderly. Ten million Americans have osteoporosis (brittle bones) according to the U.S. Bone and Joint Initiative. Another 34 million people are at risk for the condition. Osteoporosis makes bones weak and easy to break. One of the best ways to prevent it is to ensure our children develop the most bone possible during childhood, adolescence and early adulthood. Lifestyle habits developed during these

earlier years affect how rapidly bone is lost later in life. Additionally, healthy lifestyle habits practiced during adulthood help decrease Diane the risk of develMason oping osteoporoEXTENSION sis or related NOTES disorders. Osteoporosis and other bone diseases can cause loss of mobility and independence, and

deformity. These all affect a person’s quality of life. The disorder affects both men and women of all races and ages. However, in the United States, Hispanic women are at the highest risk. Caucasian and Asian women follow closely behind with African-American women at the lowest risk with about 10 percent over the age of 50 having the disease. Some risk factors include use of certain medications, having other medical problems including diabetes, arthritis,

anorexia and others, family history of the disease, low body weight, inactive lifestyle, smoking, and drinking excessive alcohol. Dietary and physical activity habits affect our bone health. According to a U.S. Surgeon General’s Report, daily physical activity and a diet high in calcium and vitamin D can help prevent osteoporosis. Our bones need about 30 minutes a day of weightbearing exercise to remain healthy. Walking, jumping,

jogging, running, and aerobics are all weight-bearing exercises. If you want to walk through life, dance until dawn, or enjoy golf through the ages, you’ll need healthy, strong bones. Do something today to learn more about your bone health and what you can do to maintain or improve it.

Children can help make homemade dumplings How many of you have made homemade drop dumplings from scratch? Actually, they’re easy enough for kids to make, with your guidance. Dumplings are so good cooked on top of soup or stew, or simply dropped into hot broth. And I guarantee you’ll get “oohs” and “aahs” from those lucky enough to enjoy them. Also, I had mentioned that I had reciRita pes for hot Heikenfeld dilled vegetables and RITA’S KITCHEN said if you wanted any, let me know. The requests for hot dilly beans were too numerous for me to mail, etc., so I’m sharing that one today. I also have a nice recipe for Korean kimchi, which is fast becoming trendy, on my blog.


First, have your soup, stew or broth boiling on the stove.

1 cup flour 11⁄2 teaspoons baking powder 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄2 cup milk 3 tablespoons butter or equivalent Bit of minced or dried parsley (optional) Pepper to taste

Whisk flour, baking powder and salt. Add parsley. Make a well in center. Heat milk with butter until butter melts. Pour into well and mix. Dough will look shaggy and very sticky. Don’t over mix. Turn heat down on soup to simmer. Use an ice cream scoop sprayed with cooking spray to drop dumplings carefully on top of liquid, leaving some space in between for expansion. Put lid on. No peeking! Simmer 6-8 minutes or until largest dumpling is done: cut in half to test. Dumplings expand to double or even triple.

seeds ⁄4 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt Salt to taste


Tips from readers’ kitchens

Friendship muffins: JoAnn S. said she makes muffins with the pudding recipe of Friendship bread. She loves to tweak recipes. “Foil cupcake liners work best. I have added 1/2-3/4 cup of Craisins, blueberries, raisins and/or nuts to batter before filling and topped each with a teaspoon of a mixture of cinnamon sugar and finely chopped nuts before baking. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or till a toothpick comes out clean.” Homemade dumplings will double or even triple in size when dropped in hot soup or stew. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Tip from Rita’s kitchen Baking powder: Not sure if it still has leavening power? Put a bit in warm water, it should fizz up quickly if it’s still good.

Hot dilly beans

Inspired by a Ball canning recipe. If you don’t want spicy beans, leave the cayenne out. You can substitute okra, as well but note the different processing times. Now as far as the hot pepper taste is concerned, after jars are filled, taste a bit of the brine and if you want more hot pepper, go for it. But remember, as the pickles sit, the hot pepper flavor will get more intense. 4 pint canning jars with lids 2 pounds trimmed green beans 21⁄2 cups clear or cider vinegar 21⁄2 cups water 1 ⁄4 cup Kosher salt 4 teaspoons minced garlic 4 generous teaspoons dill seeds 12 whole peppercorns 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper flakes, divided

Sterilize jars in a pot of boiling water for 15 minutes or run through dishwasher. Keep rings and lids in hot water. Keep jars hot. Brine: Bring vinegar, water and salt to boil. Pack beans tightly in jars, leaving 1⁄4 inch headspace. To each jar, add 1 teaspoon each of garlic and dill seeds, three peppercorns and 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne. Pour boiling brine over. Wipe rims with clean wet cloth. Put lids and rings on and process in boiling water bath for 8 minutes. If making okra, process 12 minutes. Let sit about a month (I know it’s hard) before tasting. These are pantry stable.

Refrigerator dilly beans

No processing in boiling water bath. After you put lids on, let cool on counter and then refrigerate. Again, wait about a month before tasting.

Two-way poppy seed dressing

Citrus fruits are in season! Try this for topping a salad made from oranges, grapefruits, a

handful of chopped parsley and a thinly sliced shallot. Whisk: Zest and juice of one lemon 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup 1 ⁄2 to 3⁄4 teaspoon poppy

Piano concert honors murder victims By Nancy Daly

UNION — The church where murder victim Peggy Stephenson served as organist for 42 years honored her memory with the “Night of Pianos” on Dec. 15. Union Baptist Church also honored Bill Stephenson, the church deacon who was killed alongside his wife in a 2011 unsolved murder. Union Baptist and Willis Music Florence Steinway Piano Gallery hosted two concerts Dec. 15 at Ryle High School in Union. The Christmas performance featured five Steinway grand pianos in one auditorium. They were played simultaneously by pianists Lara Koogler, Becky Kelley, Jeff Blankenship, Denise Mau and Rani Peffer, all members of Union Baptist Church. Proceeds from the concert will be used to establish the “Stephenson Excellence in Music & the Arts Scholarship” for a Ryle High School senior seeking a college degree in music. This scholarship honors Bill and Peggy Stephenson who were tragically taken from the community in 2011, according to Arnie Forman, Union Baptist Church associate pastor and worship pastor. The Stephensons, both 74, were killed in their Oakbrook condo on May 29, 2011, and the in-

vestigation into the murders is continuing. The couple were heavily involved in Union Baptist Church. “We thought this was a good way to put it in the forefront that we’re still praying for answers and to get justice for a senseless murder,” Forman said. Bill Stephenson, known for a dry sense of humor, was always busy helping behind the scenes but never wanted credit for anything, Forman said. “They were both extremely humble people.” Forman wanted to honor Peggy Stephenson for being part of his music ministry. “She played piano and organ for about 60 years,” he said. “It’s all for the love of our community and to honor our Lord and to honor Bill and Peggy,” Forman said. The church was fortunate to have five pianists technically capable of doing this concert, he said. Visit for more community news




A piano concert benefited a scholarship fund in honor of Bill and Peggy Stephenson, whose 2011 murders remain unsolved.

At which age will an unborn child have developed to such a stage that he or she will have all the systems and organs that an adult has? (a) 6 weeks; (b) 8 weeks; (c) 3 months; (d) viability (b) “Day 40 – Brain waves can be detected and recorded. Week 6 – The liver is now taking over the production of blood cells, and the brain begins to control movement of muscles and organs. Week 8 – Everything is now present that will be found in a fully developed adult. The heart has been beating for more than a month; the stomach produces digestive juices; and the kidneys have begun to function. Forty muscle sets begin to operate in conjunction with the nervous system. The fetus’ body responds to touch.” The First Nine Months Megan Germann Sara Germann Maureen Gerner Maureen E. Gibson Roy L.

The unborn child cannot feel any pain during an abortion. True or False? False – “When doctors first begin invading the sanctuary of the womb, they did not know that the unborn child would react to pain in the same fashion as a child would.

When a woman has had an abortion, it is best for those around her to minimize any doubt or regrets she may have and encourage her to just “forget it”. True or False? False – “Common in the post-abortion patient are grief and heartache over the procedure and feelings of loss and victimization. Even more important, however, is her inability to process the trauma and its accompanying feelings because of denying and repressing her thoughts and feelings about the event. Because the consequences of abortion can be so threatening, we don’t want to exacerbate the problem by doubting or negating the many women who have undergone excruciating pain because of the ‘choice’.” Theresa Karminski Burke, Ph.D., a psychologist James Kocher Merle Ann Koenig Jim Kohlhepp Jen Kohlhepp Mark Kolb Donald Kolb Dru Kolb Eleanor Kolb Elizabeth Kolb Joseph Kolb Magdalen Kolb Mary Kolb Maximilian Kolb Veronica Kolb Mary Lou Koors Laraine Kraus

Would a child born with handicaps consider it better to never have lived? No – “Studies on handicapped children have indicated their frustrations are no greater than those experienced by perfectly normal children… In the thousands of such circumstances in which I have participated, I have never had a parent ask me why I tried so hard to save the life of their handicapped child. Now that I am seeing children I operated upon years ago bring me their children for care, I have never had an old patient ask me why I worked so hard to save his or her life. Nor has a parent ever expressed to me the wish that his child had not been saved.” C.
