KEEP THE MO A7 Crusaders finishing strong



Decay found in one of the timber caps of the Richardson Road bridge. PROVIDED

Repairs to Richardson bridge gets OK By Stephanie Salmons

Northern Kentucky,” Burlington, under its earliest name, Craig’s Camp, was originally planned as a capital city and has been the seat of Boone County government since 1799.

Closed since September, it may still be months before the Richardson Road Bridge re-opens. But action by the Boone County Fiscal Court Jan. 21 gets the work going. A resolution, approved 4-0, directs county staff to proceed with design work and the solicitation of bids for repair work for the bridge. The resolution was approved following a presentation by Mike Zwick, an engineer with KZF Design, a firm hired to perform an inspection after the bridge was closed. Zwick highlighted the findings from the inspection as well as recommended repairs during the meeting. The county was notified late in September of the continued deterioration of the bridge, originally built in 1981. Near the intersection of Richardson Road and U.S. 25, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet recommended the bridge be immediately closed at that time. In a phone conversation, Boone County Administrator Jeff Earlywine said a written report indicates a majority of the bridge structure is in good condition, but several timber caps, or horizontal beams on top of the supporting post the bridge deck is laid upon, need to be replaced. In order to do that, the bridge deck – the driving surface – needs to be replaced, he said. Engineers have recommended to replace the timber cap members, repair damaged deck panels and remove and replace the asphalt wearing surface and joints. According to the inspection report: » Three of the eight timber cap members have failed and every timber cap is exposed to leakage from the deck joints above. KZF recommends replacing all eight timber caps. » Deck panels should be inspected for damage that may not have been visible

Watershed plan has community input By Stephanie Salmons

Work is continuing on a Gunpowder Creek Watershed plan now that input from the community has been received. A recently released summary report follows roundtable meetings in September aimed to give the community a chance to take stewardship over the Gunpowder Creek watershed. In 2009, the Boone County Conservation District was awarded a grant from

the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through the Kentucky Division of Water to to evaluate Gunpowder Creek and develop a plan to restore and maintain the health of the stream. The Gunpowder Creek Watershed encompasses about 58 square miles, is about 25 percent of Boone County’s land area and is home to about 50 percent of the county’s population. A watershed is an area of land where runoff flows to a common stream. When creeks come together, they combine to

make a larger watershed. The initiative, with the cooperation of landowners, collected physical, chemical and biological data throughout the watershed over several years. An analysis of that data indicates specific problems and the sources of those problems. During the September roundtable sessions, 11 groups of five to 10 people were asked to answer five questions, See INPUT, Page A2

Burlington, Dinsmore get their markers By Stephanie Salmons

BURLINGTON — Boone County is marking more of its history. Two new roadside historical markers – one highlighting Craig’s Camp, as Burlington was once known as, the other Dinsmore Homestead on Ky. 18, about six mile west of downtown Burlington – were approved by the Kentucky Historical Society. According to the “Encyclopedia of

The Boone County Historical Society will install a roadside historical marker at Dinsmore Homestead as well as in Burlington, the county seat.THANKS TO MARTY MCDONALD

addressing why a clean, healthy stream is important; what land uses within the watershed causes the most concern to the creek; the most common problems; and suggestions for best practices to manage the watershed, according to the report. “In all three meetings, most of the concerns with Gunpowder Creek were related to development,” the report reads. “This includes the effects of

this plan,” Jacobs said. “The whole project really is public input because we’re not just a bunch of hippie tree huggers. This is our water supply ... water resources right in our community that everybody uses.” Early in the process, Jacobs said they wanted to know what people thought were the issues, how people used the creek “and do they even care about Gunpowder Creek” among other topics. “We got that kind of feedback early on and now we wanted to know from them, as we developed our plan, what they think the biggest issues are causing some of the problems and what do they think are some of the solutions,” he said. According to information provided within the roundtable summary, recreation, aesthetics, and quality of life and health were the top three reasons a clean and healthy stream were important. Development within the watershed was a concern with 100 percent of the groups. The groups identified runoff, flooding and safety, education, lack of vegetation, erosion, water quality, littering and planning ordinances as the most common problems within the watershed. The top management practices in Gunpowder Creek were identified as detention and retention efforts, eduction, responsible development and vegetative buffers.

storm water runoff from developed areas leading to flooding, damage to private property and infrastructure, and poor water quality. A lack of effective regulations and a lack of public education about these problems was also a recurring concern at the meetings.” Mark Jacobs, watershed project manager and conservation technician for the Boone County and Kenton County conservation districts, said they were able to get good feedback during the roundtable discussions and that feedback will included in the watershed plan. The chapters of the watershed plan are currently being developed, he said, and a steering committee will discuss types of best management practices that will be in the plan. Community input is “really the backbone of

Decay and damage should be repaired as recommended. » Prior to any work, the asphalt wearing surface should be removed carefully as to not damage the top surface of the deck and deck joints should be removed and replaced. A waterproofing membrane should be installed over the surface of the bridge deck after the joints have been placed to minimize leakage through the timber bridge.

The town was also known as Wilmington and was renamed Burlington in 1816 at the request of the U.S. Post Office, according to the encyclopedia. Burlington was incorporated in 1824, but the corporation was annulled in1923. It’s now one of the few unincorporated county seats within the state. According to, the Dinsmore Homestead is a unique historic site where visitors can learn what rural life was like in the 19th and early 20th centuries. James Dinsmore purchased about 700 acres in 1839, where he and his family settled, growing grapes, raising sheep and growing willows for a

we don’t, we’ll have to pay for it entirely using our emergency reserve funds.” Engineers estimate the bridge could reopen around July 1, he said, though the county will “do anything and everything we can to expedite the work. It’s critically important to get the bridge open as soon as possible.” The bridge currently remains closed. Motorists can detour using U.S. 25 to Industrial Road.

basket-making business, according to the website. The house was completed in 1842. Boone County Historical Society president Betsy Conrad said the news of the new markers was “so exciting,” and since they’ve taken over the effort, the historical society has been approved for two markers each year. She said the state only approves 15 throughout the state during a sixmonth cycle. Plans are underway for June dedication ceremonies for both markers in June. This is the group’s third effort to install roadside marker signage and they have previously added signage at Bullittsburg Baptist Church, Hopeful Lutheran Church and the Anderson Ferry, as well as a sign highlighting Confederate Gen. John Hunt Mor-

gan’s escape through Boone County. Conrad said the first year, the historical society created a committee to develop a list of potential sites where such markers would be appropriate. “All of these wonderful things happen in and around our county, we drive by everyday,” she said. “It becomes so commonplace to drive by a certain place without thinking about the significance of that location or event.” When there’s a marker there, though, it “sends a little memory.” She said the Boone County Historical Society pays for each sign, which typically costs some $2,500 each. Boone County Judgeexecutive Gary Moore said he’s “extremely excited” the two markers have been approved.

Earlywine said the project cost is estimated around $315,000 with potential added costs related to the possible temporary relocation of power lines in the area. Since it’s an unbudgeted item, the county will fund the work through the Public Works Department’s emergency reserve funds. “What we will do is assume the worst and hope for the best,” said Earlywine, adding the county will also apply for emergency repair funds through the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to potentially secure some partial funding. “If we get funded for part, terrific,” he said. “If

Winter costs snowballing for everyone By Amy Scalf and Melissa Stewart,

Most Northern Kentucky city and county agencies are battling their budgets more than their salt supplies as the region heads into another weekend of potential snow and ice. Union is just $4,000 shy of hitting last’s year’s total for snow removal alone – through Jan. 23 – spending $101,000 since winter hit the region with its first snow on Nov. 8, said Bryan Miller, Union commissioner of public works. Salt supplies vary by agency, with Union dealing with one of the bigger shortages. “This winter has been pretty hard on us,” Miller said. Union is also low on salt, he said, with enough on hand for just a few more applications. Sub-zero temperatures might save on salt use for some – salt alone doesn’t work below 5 degrees, said Kevin Beach, general

manager of Perfection Landscaping & Design, which plows Union’s streets. “In 14 years of business we’ve never run across temperatures like this, and it’s only going to get worse.” “We’ve never seen a shortage like this before,” Beach said. “You could always go other places nearby like Columbus, but there’s no more product in the pipeline. We’ve been

able to locate salt in Cleveland, but rates will go up to cover the cost. Until then, we’ll keep plowing.” Boone County also is reporting low supplies, according to Boone County government and community relations director Adam Howard. He said the county has salt on hand and is prepared for another snow event if one should hit this weekend. The county has budget-

ed $400,000 the last three fiscal years for salt, the only product used to treat county roads. At the end of December, the county had already spent $236,000 on salt. Boone County recently put in an order for 3,000 more tons of salt. “It’s safe to say that the remaining amount of the $400,000 is close to being spent,” he said.

New store charging up on Mall Road By Melissa Stewart

FLORENCE — When Chuck Duty of Union lost his job as a pilot after more than 20 years, he decided to change careers. He and his wife, Sharon, wanted to open their own business so they looked for franchise opportunities. They opened Batteries Plus Bulbs Dec. 20 at 7657 Mall Road in Florence Square on Mall Road. It is the first Batteries Plus Bulbs in Northern Kentucky. “We wanted something not market saturated,” Chuck said. “There is no store like this on this side of the river.” The store offers a variety of batteries – from hearing aids and watches to cars and tractor and trailers – and a variety of light bulbs, serving retail and commercial customers. Their store is one of about 580 Batteries Plus Bulbs stores nationwide. Chuck said Florence was an obvious location choice. “Florence is an area that we know very well,

and with Mall and Houston roads being where a lot of shopping takes place, we felt it was a perfect opportunity to open here,” he said. A grand opening celebration will be 5-8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 24, with prizes and give-a-ways. Also half of the products in stock will be on sale from that day until Feb. 18. They plan to open a second Northern Kentucky location by 2015. Sharon said the response from the community has been good. “We’ve gotten very positive feedback,” she said. “We have two types of customers. There are those who have heard of us and are ecstatic that we are now in Northern Kentucky, and those who’ve never heard of us and walk in the door and are blown away by the variety of product we offer.” In addition to 45,000 battery and bulb products, the store offers an on-site technology center where a staff member can rebuild worn out battery packs with new cells.

ENorthern X PKentucky O SAffordable ED! Care Health Insurance

Who Benefits from the new affordable care health insurance? From our extensive research, we have found that most people will benefit from Obama Care. The overwhelming fact is that middle class families will have more coverage and lower premiums under the Affordable Care Act. I will list some key benefits that I have found: 1. Less expensive premiums for working class families 2. No pre-existing conditions exclusions 3. No limit on your total health insurance benefit 4. We found it is much easier to understand what is covered under your policy 5. It is much easier to compare plans between competing insurance companies 6. GONE is the stringent underwriting designed to turn down the very people that needed health insurance

7. More competition based off of service and individual needs less about insurance profits and negotiated network rates 8. A single market place to shop and compare health insurance quotes “kyconnect” 9. Broader coverage’s are included in all policies like maternity care coverage 10. A brand new non profit insurance company “Kentucky Health Coop” designed to compete with the established companies

Below are some real life examples of what you will pay for Kentucky Health Insurance.

Example based on a family of 4. As you will see by the example, the premium you pay is based on your income, not the premium cost. Adjusted Gross Income $50,000 $50,000 $50,000 $50,000 $50,000

Oldest Family Member Age 30 35 40 45 50

Premium $834 $903 $939 $1061 $1312

Tax Credit $442 $511 $548 $670 $921

Actual Premium Cost $391.60 $391.60 $391.60 $391.60 $391.60

So what makes us different from everyone else?

Much like other government initiated programs, it is extremely important to have someone working for you that knows your insurance qualifications. We have seen many problems with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. There can be confusion as to the amount of your income. Your income is based on your federal tax return modified adjusted gross income. It is not based on your W2. Certain income sources don’t count as income, like disability or child support. It is also important to have an agent that understands your individual needs, like is your doctor or pediatrician included in an insurance company’s network, or what is the cost of your prescription medication under the different insurance policies? We are experienced health insurance agents. We will walk you through the confusion and help you make the choice that best fits your needs. You can call us or fill out the quote form above and we will contact you! Chuck and Sharon Duty of Union recently opened a franchise of Batteries Plus Bulbs in Florence. MELISSA

Gateway part of College Goal

Gateway Community and Technical College will offer free help to families applying for college financial aid from 4-6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 29, at the college’s Edgewood Campus, 790 Thomas More Parkway, as part of the statewide College Goal Kentucky effort. Gov. Steven L. Beshear proclaimed January 2014 as Financial Aid Awareness Month in the state to promote access to information about financial aid programs. More than three

dozen information sessions will be conducted across the state between December and February to make it easier for families to understand and apply for financial aid. The Gateway session will take place at the college’s Student Services Center on the Edgewood Campus. Financial aid professionals will be on hand to answer questions and provide help in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.

According to the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority, participation in state aid programs has more than quadrupled since the 1990s. Last year, KHEAA disbursed nearly $200 million in higher education grants and scholarships to almost 94,000 students. Students who file the FAFSA before early February have the best chance of receiving KHEAA funds. If applying for financial aid for spring or summer 2014

terms, College Goal Kentucky participants should bring completed 2012 IRS 1040 tax returns and any other 2012 income and benefit information. For those applying for aid for the fall 2014 semester, participants should bring completed 2013 tax returns and income and benefit information. The event is free, and no reservations are necessary.

St. Henry hoops journeys to homestretch By James Weber

ERLANGER — After losing to one of the top teams in the state, the St. Henry District High School boys basketball team plans to keep its positive momentum going. The Crusaders lost 8367 to Newport Central Catholic in the semifinals of the All “A” Classic Ninth Region tournament Jan. 24 at Dayton. St. Henry drops to 11-7 after winning six of its previous seven games. “I’m proud of their effort,” said head coach Dave Faust. “We’ve come a long way from the beginning of the year. We got a lot of room for improvement now until we play in the first round of the districts. I think we can get better and my kids believe they can improve. We surpassed our wins from last year and they’re not satisfied.” Senior guard Jake Plummer had 19 points, sophomore forward Paul Wallenhorst 18 and senior center Jordan Noble 15. NewCath threatened to blow the Crusaders out of the gym early and led by 15 at halftime (46-31). St. Henry cut the lead to six points midway through the third quarter (51-45), but the Thoroughbreds scored eight unanswered

points in less than a minute to pull away for good. NCC, which has three players 6-foot-6 or taller, dominated the inside, which they do against many teams. “Our defense needs improvement, especially our interior defense,” Faust said. “Those guys are good, but they got by us too many times. You can’t give up 46 points in the first half.” Faust liked his team’s

moxie in the second half. “We made some shots and we defended better than we did at the beginning of the game,” Faust said. “They’re good. They had a lot to do with it. We took away some things early in the third quarter and we got back in it. They have so many weapons and they can shoot threes.” St. Henry plays at nearby rival Lloyd Friday, Jan. 31, to finish seeding play

in the 34th District. St. Henry is 2-1and will likely lock up the two seed with a win over the Juggernauts, whom the Crusaders beat by 34 points in the All “A” quarterfinals. St. Henry’s next home game is Feb. 7 against Cooper. Follow James Weber on Twitter, @RecorderWeber

Boone bowlers prep for regionals By James Weber



Boone County Cooper and St. Henry will look to pick up bowling hardware next at the KHSAA Region 6 championships. The tourneys take place Feb. 4 and 5 at Super Bowl Erlanger. Separate team and singles

titles will be at stake during the week, and tickets will be punched for the state tournament Feb. 1314 in Lexington. With makeup matches from weather-induced postponements still to play at press time, Boone and Cooper were fighting for the Division I conference title. Cooper was un-

defeated in conference matches going into play on Jan. 27. Both Boone and Cooper reached the state tournament last year, with the Rebels advancing to the team quarterfinals. Boone sophomore Kayla Hightchew carried a 191 average into play that date, leading Northern

Kentucky. She ranks fourth in two-game series with 430. Taylor Evans averaged 168 and Samantha Schmitz 160. Emily Bross paces Cooper at 172. She finished 30th in the state singles tournament in 2013. Erin Suttles leads St. Henry with 119. In boys, Boone and

Cooper were 3-2 in conference play going into the 27th, and St. Henry was 4-3 in Division 2. For Boone, Devin Cregar leads the way with a 187 average, Ryan Vickers 185 and Dylan Burk 176. T.J. Jones paces Cooper at 203, Andrew Blood 195 and Michael Bowling

191. Bowling finished 22nd in state singles last year. Cooper qualified for state as a team last year and was regional runnerup. Michael Binkowski leads the Crusaders at 158.

High School, will receive the NFF Chapter’s “Lifetime Achievement” award.

(Boone County) scored a game-high 36 points to lead the fifth-ranked Thomas More College women’s basketball team to a 112-49 win over Grove City College Jan. 25 at TMC. With the win, the Saints remain undefeated at 17-0 overall and 10-0 in the PAC. The Saints built a 63-15 lead at halftime as they shot 60.5 percent from the field (23-of-38), including 55.6 percent from behind the threepoint arc (five-of-nine) and 100 percent from the free-throw line (12-of-12). At the half, Moss had 26 points and junior forward Jenny Burgoyne (McAuley) had 18. Beasley dished out five assists and tied the Thomas More single-season assist record with 145.

NKU women find fresh focus in 2014 By Adam Turer


Northern Kentucky University’s women’s basketball team finished 2013 on a sour note - a four-game losing streak, falling to 4-7. The extended holiday break proved to be just the relief the Norse needed, as the rejuvenated team has surged to a hot start to 2014. The Norse are now 10-8 overall and 6-1 in Atlantic Sun Conference play heading into critical conference matchups with Stetson and Florida Gulf Coast. The two home games, on Jan. 30 and Feb.

1, respectively, will determine which of these three teams holds the Atlantic Sun lead halfway through the conference season. “Since the Christmas break, the kids have been playing hungry,” said head coach Dawn Plitzuweit. “This week is a great opportunity for us to learn and get better.” After winning their first two games of the season, both at home, it took the Norse nearly two months to earn their next home victory. NKU went winless at home between Nov. 13 and Jan. 9. That motivated the players to refocus and put on a show in their big home games to open 2014. “We feel like it is our time to come back and win in front of our home crowd,” said senior Kayla Thacker. “We’ve noticed more support with the success we’re having.” In their second season as a Division I team, the Norse entered the year with a better idea of what to expect, especially within their conference. Not that NKU struggled in its inaugural A-Sun season the Norse posted a 12-6 conference mark last season en route to a 15-13 overall record, the program’s 30th straight winning season. After a full

offseason to adapt to the strengths and weaknesses of their conference foes, 31 straight is well within reach for the Norse. “The biggest thing is that we have a little bit of familiarity with most of the teams,” said Plitzuweit. “We’ve been able to adjust how we guard them and how we play. Most of our adjustments have been on the defensive end.” The Norse pride themselves on defense, and have allowed just three opponents to crack the 70point barrier this season. With just three upperclassmen and only one senior on the roster, it takes a team effort each night. Different scorers

are stepping up, and playing solid team defense has helped the Norse as the underclassmen continue to adapt to this level of play. “Our three upperclassmen have done a good job of embracing the younger girls and bringing them along,” said Plitzuweit. “The younger girls want to play well for their teammates.” Thacker is the lone senior on the roster. Still, with the transition to Division I last season, it can at times feel like she is only a sophomore at this level. Last year felt like starting over in some ways, but that experience helped prepare her to lead this season. “I feel like I have more

responsibility as a leader this year. Knowing that I had that year of Division I experience under my belt helped,” Thacker said. “Our five freshmen have really stepped up and helped us.” After three uninterrupted decades of winning seasons, the Norse know what is at stake and what they mean to the university. Instead of worrying about upholding tradition, the ladies are confident that if they take care of their day-to-day responsibilities, the winning will take care of itself. “There is a little pressure,” Thacker said. “But we know that if we keep playing our hardest, we won’t disappoint.”

Beware of puppy mills With the recent discovery of abused dogs at the Krramer-Krift Farm and puppy mill, on Persimmon Grove Pike in Alexandria, I would like to warn readers about puppy mills. Puppy mills are inhumane breeding that produce puppies in large numbers. They are designed to maximize profits and commonly disregard the physical, social and emotional health of the dogs. The breeding dogs at puppy mills live their entire lives in cages, and the poor conditions cause puppies to have more physical and behavioral problems than dogs from good sources. The best way to stop puppy mills is for consumers to stop supporting them. To find a puppy from a reputable source, visit your local animal shelter or find a reputable breeder and visit their premises in person to see how and where your puppy’s mother is living. Responsible pet purchasing, adoption and ongoing guardianship takes effort. But, it’s worth it to do things right and find the canine companion of a lifetime. By finding a responsible breeder, shelter or rescue group, you can help defeat the inhumane puppy mill system that places profit above animal welfare. Readers can look up local shelters and breed rescue groups at and A checklist of good breeder characteristics is available at People who love dogs need to help stop them from being mistreated by making sure they aren’t supporting a puppy mill. Remember, our furry friends are warm blooded animals who deserve comfortbale, sanitary conditions, food, water and, most of all, affection, just like us. Evelyn Cramer Alexandria

Rotary Club need members

Do we need community service organizations such as Rotary, Lions, etc.? Picture what many of these do. Lions clubs do eye screening in many of our schools and in the community. It provides for eye testing, treatment and glasses when needed. That is the main function of Lions but it provides a variety of other services depending on needs in each of the club’s areas. Rotary International has been instrumental in almost eradicating polio around the world. (Currently there have been less than 300 world wide and none in the U.S.) It provides shelter, etc., in cases of catastrophes. Locally, Rotaries provide books, dictionaries in local schools, gloves, shoes, scarves, and other clothing, financial assistance for food banks. The list for either organization is endless and could include other such service clubs. But what’s happening to them? Membership is dwindling. Therefore many are turning in their charters. One women’s club in Kenton County folded up last fall. Members are needed to first suggest projects to provide assistance when and where needed. Then to plan how to carry out that project, which may include fundraising. Who can join? In most cases membership is open to anyone. All that is asked is that members participate when possible. Obviously each has meetings – Lions normally meets twice a month. Rotary meets every week, but100 percent attendance is not a necessity. Campbell County Rotary is just an example of what could happen with that organization. If it does not pick up members by March 31 it will turn in its charter. It meets at Highland Country Club on Wednesdays at 12:30 p.m. Do you have ideas of how any of these organizations can better serve our communities? Then join and tell them. Do you have a little time to give? These organizations welcome your participation. Forge new relationships, and seek new ways to contribute to your community.

Gov. Steven Beshear deserves high praise for proposing a smart, bold budget that includes the restoration of childcare assistance and increased access to home visitation and preschool. Likewise, Congress is to be commended for increasing federal funding in these programs in the budget that passed last week. Tess Hammons is director of public relations for Childre, Inc.

Tickets on sale for Mardi Gras Art student designed this year’s poster


he winning designs from the Mardi Gras for Homeless Children poster contest, submitted by students from the Art Institute of Cincinnati College of Design, were on display in the showroom of MercedesBenz of Fort Mitchell recently. The auto dealer is the sponsor for the 23rd annual 2014 Mardi Gras for Homeless Children on Fat Tuesday, March 4, in Covington. Showroom visitors were asked to vote for the best-designed poster for the Mardi Gras. The winner is Arian Clark of Amelia, Ohio. Clark was awarded a check to help with her education and also received a special gift from Mercedes-Benz of Fort Mitchell. “Each poster received votes and everyone struggled with their vote decision because of the tremendous designs,” said Dan Bell, MercedesBenz of Fort Mitchell marketing manager. “But, in the end, one design clearly ran away from the pack. It is great to see these talented students enthusiastically participate in supporting the charities for homeless children. The winning poster will be on display at Kroger stores and other ticket sale locations throughout the area. Those who voted for the winning poster in the showroom also received a poster in the mail. “The poster judging was a fun way to kick off the sale of event tickets in January,” said Gordon Snyder, Mardi Gras chairman. “Seeing the creative designs in the beautiful new Mercedes-Benz of Fort Mitchell showroom was truly a new twist this year, and a great way to showcase the tremendous work of the AIC Students.” Randall Zimmerman, AIC’s com-

puter instructor, said “We always appreciate the effort of our students and their support for the charities; it is a good learning experience and certainly a win-win.” Proceeds from the Mardi Gras will go to four area shelters that provide essential care to homeless children and their families: » Bethany House Services of Cincinnati, » Mercy Health – St. John in Cincinnati, » Brighton Center’s Homeward Bound and » Welcome House of Northern Kentucky Inc. in Covington. Together these agencies serve more than 40,000 needy individuals in our community each year. The Mercedes-Benz of Fort Mitchell Mardi Gras will feature more than 50 booths serving food and beverages furnished by the members of the Northern Kentucky Restaurant Association. A highlight of the celebration is a Royal Court parade complete with marching band and floats. Live and silent auctions offer a selection of items. In addition, the event includes live music by Robin Lacy and DeZydeco. Anthony Munoz will serve as grand marshal with Scott Sloan of WLW 700 presiding as Mardi Gras king along with WKRC-TV Local 12’s Tiffany Wilson as queen. Tickets are on sale now for Mardi Gras, which is 6:30-10 p.m. Tuesday, March 4, at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center, at the MercedesBenz of Fort Mitchell showroom, the benefiting charity shelters, Embassy Suites Rivercenter, Hilton Cincinnati Airport, Hofbrahaus Newport and the Marriott at Rivercenter.

Young professionals wander through Mainstrasse Village


omen’s Crisis Center’s kick-off of its Young Professional Group “Winter Wander” was a huge success as area young professionals learned more about the crisis center and ways to get involved with the agency during a “wander” through Mainstrasse Village.

The Young Professionals Group of Women’s Crisis Center will be holding more events in the future.

The kickoff took place Jan. 16, beginning with an open house where young professionals networked and heard a compelling presentation about Women’s Crisis Center at The

Lawrence Firm PSC. Guests enjoyed complimentary cocktails and food as they had the opportunity to get to know one another and learned how to they are able to make an impact in our community. SoHza was also there to showcase and sell the Women’s Crisis Center collection of jewelry, which was a hit among guests. A portion of the proceeds from this collection are always donated to the crisis center. Sohza also donated one of the pieces from the collection for the event raffle. For the “wander” portion of the evening guests ventured out to Mainstrasse Village Pub, Cosmo’s, Pachinko’s, Wertheim’s, and Cock n’ Bull where they enjoyed drink and food specials, along with fun activities, including a scavenger hunt that required guests to “find” Women’s Crisis

Center board members at various locations. Guests also had the opportunity all night to enter to win one of five complimentary tickets to Women’s Crisis Center’s sixth annual signature fundraising event, “Toast for Hope” taking place in April. The weather for the evening provided a perfect backdrop for “Winter Wander” with snow that transformed the village into a beautiful winter wonderland. The snowy conditions did not sway area young professionals from attending though, as the event was full of fresh new faces to the agency. As a result of the kickoff, guests signed up to be agency volunteers, became aware of Women’s Crisis Center’s programs and services, and recognized the need for fundraising income as the agency continues to suffer from a reduction in federal and state funding.

The Young Professionals Group of Women’s Crisis Center will be holding more events in the future to generate awareness of the agency and fund raise, specifically within the young professional community of Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati. For questions and more information on the Young Professional board of Women’s Crisis Center, contact Anu Reddy at or 859-372-3571. The Young Professionals of Women’s Crisis Center is an arm of the Women’s Crisis Center board of directors. The goal of the group is to raise awareness of the agency in the young professional community and beyond, in the crisis center’s mission to lead the community in the social change necessary to end domestic violence, rape and sexual abuse.

Mix together:

Classic shrimp cocktail with two sauces

For Melanie, who wanted to serve shrimp for her Super Bowl party. “I want to make the shrimp cocktail myself instead of buying it. Do you have any tips for cooking the shrimp and for an easy sauce?” she asked. Shrimp 2 dozen raw shrimp, deveined with tails on (see tip from Rita’s kitchen)

If you buy frozen shrimp, thaw in ice water in frig. and drain. Most shrimp come already deveined. If you’re squeamish about it, ask to have them deveined before you purchase.

Cajun barbecued shrimp

Check out my blog for two fun recipes.

Sausage-stuffed jalapenos

I have to admit, these are addictive. I’ve changed the original recipe a bit. Be careful when seeding hot peppers. Use gloves. You could use a sweeter pepper if you like.

1 pound favorite pork or turkey sausage 8 oz. cream cheese, softened 1 cup shredded Romano or Parmesan cheese 1 pound large fresh jalapeño peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded

Horseradish sauce

No real recipe here but I stir grated horseradish into whipped cream. Or just buy horseradish sauce and use that. Sometimes I put a squeeze of lime into the sauce.

Rita’s classic shrimp cocktail recipe features two sauces: Cocktail and horseradish.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD


Carol’s vegetarian goetta

When I asked for readers to share goetta recipes, one of the first I received was from reader Julie B. Julie shares her mom’s vegetarian goetta recipe. Here’s what Julie says: “I have to share my mom’s vegetarian goetta recipe. She has been making traditional slow cooker goetta for years and then decided she needed an option for her many vegetarian grandchildren. It is delicious, spicy and flavorful! I hope you decide to share it.” Well, Julie, this does look so good and,

Free screenings at fair During the first five years of life children are growing and developing at a rapid rate. The way children play, learn, speak and act offers important clues about how they are developing. Each skill or developmental milestone builds a foundation for the future skills children need for success in school and life. Developmental screening is a brief process that helps parents and caregivers understand where their child is in terms of cognitive, language, motor and social skill development. Parents and caregivers can have their child screened at the Boone County Early

Childhood Fair on Saturday, Feb. 1. Children 2 months to 5 years are welcome by appointment. For children up to age 3, parents will be asked to complete a brief series of activities with their child. For children ages 3 and 4 screening consists of a of game-like activities which the child will be asked to complete by a trained screener. Early childhood specialists will review the screening results and provide activity sheets and suggestions on skill development. Developmental screening takes about 2030 minutes. To schedule an appointment for your child, call

859-816-5592. Appointments are available from 9:30 a.m. to 12:40 p.m. The Early Childhood Fair will be held at the main library at 1786 Burlington Pike, Burlington. Vision screening is being provided by the Kentucky Lions Club Kidsight program and is available for children ages 1 through 5 years. Young children often do not know that they are not seeing as well as they should. You may not be aware of their eye problems unless they are severe. During the screen, a picture is taken of the eye with a digital camera. appointments are needed for vision screening.

yes, I’m happy to share your Mom’s vegetarian goetta. 11⁄2 cups pinhead oats 3 cups warm vegetable broth 1 ⁄4 cup olive oil 1 medium chopped onion 5 cloves minced garlic 15 ounce can black beans, drained 2 teaspoons dried thyme 1-2 teaspoons cumin (Julie likes 2) 1 ⁄2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Combine everything in slow cooker. Cook on high for about two hours, covered. Transfer to

sprayed loaf pan, cover and cool overnight. When ready to cook, heat canola oil in skillet and add sliced goetta. Cook on each side about five minutes until golden brown. (Carol says you really need the canola oil, as the goetta will be very dry since it contains no fat from meat).

What to know about retailer security breaches News that both Target and Nieman Marcus stores are the latest to have had their computers hacked has made a lot consumers nervous – and rightly so. The big thing to be concerned about is the use of debit cards at these retailers. Credit card charges are sent to you in statements each month allowing you to review them before you pay. Debit card charges come right out of your bank account, so if someone steals your debit card information they can empty all the money from your account before you become aware. Then, you’ve got to notify your bank and try to get your money back, which can take several

Garden planning starts now Question: I am eager to have a vegetable garden for the first time. What can I do to get an early start? Should I start seeds indoors soon? Answer: You can get an early start on spring gardening. Order seeds now. Gardening catalogs are arriving in our mailboxes each day. You don’t need to wait for warm weather to start planning your vegetable garden. Did you know there are several types of vegetables you can start outdoors in early March? Radishes, spinach, Mike cabbage, Klahr broccoli, HORTICULTURE lettuce, CONCERNS onions and many more vegetables are all quite frost tolerant, and you can seed or transplant them in the garden in March and early April. Try growing your own onions from seed this year. Now is the time to start onion seeds indoors in flats under lights. Purchase a seedstarting mix or potting mix, rather than using actual garden soil when starting seeds indoors. Use fluorescent tube lighting. If you want to get an even earlier start to your outdoor gardening, you could try covering an area with clear plastic film to create a mini greenhouse, or build a simple coldframe or “hotbed” where plants will thrive in February, even though it’s still too cold to start them outside in the garden. Learn how to do this by attending our free class, A Hot Bed (or Coldframe) in Your Own Back Yard! on Tuesday, Feb., 11, from 9:30-11:30 a.m. In the meantime, to try this season-extending technique yourself, first work up the soil for your plot in early February, and stretch some black plastic over the area for a couple of weeks. This will help warm the soil and give seeds and transplants an added boost. After a few weeks under black plastic, the soil will have warmed a

few degrees, and you can prepare the bed for planting and transplanting. Once planted, you should install a wooden or metal frame over the bed and cover it with clear polyethylene film, or build a more rigid, transparent covering for the roof of the coldframe. If sheet plastic film is used, anchor the film at the base with boards, bricks or soil, but remember that occasionally you will have to remove the poly to tend to the plants and to harvest the crop. On sunny days, you will also need to ventilate or the crops will “cook” under the plastic. For this reason, it’s best if you don’t permanently attach the plastic to the frame. You can easily accomplish this by designing the ends of the covering so you can easily open or remove them on sunny days.

Changes to the program guidelines may be needed. “When Medicare D prescription insurance took effect in 2003, we had to reevaluate our criteria. Our funders were clear: do not let our seniors go back to falling through the crack,” said the pharmacy’s Executive Director Rosana Aydt. “We updated our program criteria to make exceptions on a case by case basis to continue to help clients

Grant helps Charitable Pharmacy buy medicine for those in need Faith Community Pharmacy started off the New Year by receiving a $25,000 grant for the purchase of non-sampled pharmaceuticals.

Its clients are low income and in most cases have no prescription insurance. The funding comes from The Greater Cincinnati Foundation and from The E. Foster Stearns Fund of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation to help

faces after they have been cleaned with hot, soapy water. As an example of when you should be sure to clean items, consider a meal with chicken, salad and dessert. Rinse and chop the vegetables for the salad. Clean the cutting boards and utensils used and clean the surfaces. Prepare the fruit dessert item and again, wash the utensils and surfaces. Then, prepare the chicken. Wash all equipment and surfaces used with hot soapy water and sanitize the countertops and sink
