UNION — Brady Parke loves reading. The New Haven Elementary School second-grader watched with eyes wide open in excitement as technology teacher Michael Maschinot, dressed as The Cat in the Hat, read “Green Eggs and Ham” to Parke and his classmates. Students at New Haven Elementary celebrated reading throughout the day Feb. 28; reading books themselves or having special guests like Maschinot or a parent read to them for the national Read the Most Coast to Coast program. They were among hundreds of thousands of students who joined in this third annual reading challenge. Read the Most Coast to Coast is a oneday effort to beat the record for the number of Accelerated Reader Quizzes taken in one day. Last school year, students set a new one-day record of 4,409,622 quizzes. Accelerated Reader is a kin-

HEBRON — In some situations, timing is everything. The same morning Bonfiglioli, a Hebron manufacturing company, installed an automated external defibrillator (AED), it was used to save the life of an employee who went into cardiac arrest. “Essentially I was told I basically died and the defibrillator saved my life,” said Jackie Bartley, just 41, of Burlington. He was in a meeting Feb. 19 with two other managers when he started getting hot, and he could not understand his coworkers, he said. Then he woke up with people around him.

A weak muscle in his heart caused him to go into cardiac arrest, he said. When Bartley lost consciousness, several employees responded, calling 911, performing CPR, and using the defibrillator. According to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute website, an AED is a portable device that checks the heart rhythm and, if needed, can send an electric shock in an attempt to restore a normal rhythm. Frank Baker was in the meeting with Bartley. He called it a miracle. Even more so because employees had not gone through training yet; that was Feb. 24.

they try to pick shows other theater groups aren’t doing or haven’t done in a while, if at all. “It’s something that hasn’t been done, a show that hasn’t been done in the Tristate in a very, very long time,” Franxman said. According to Wikipedia, “Tommy” is the “fourth album by English rock band The Who. A double album telling a loose story about a “deaf, dumb and blind kid,” it was the first musical work to be billed overtly as a rock opera. Released in 1969, the album was mostly composed by Pete Townshend.” The See WIZARD, Page A2 Vol. 3 No. 16 © 2014 The Community Recorder ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Quilts help families at McDonald House By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

BURLINGTON — The whirring of sewing machines and chatter fill the Boone County Senior Center in the R.C. Durr YMCA on a cold. The women inside chat and laugh as they cut, place and sew materials for blankets that will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House in Cincinnati. It’s the second time the group has met for the Comfort Quilts for Kids program. Groups around the area participate in the program, but this is the first group in Northern Kentucky. Nora Kelly, from the Harrison, Ohio, area, started the program six years ago. In that time, different groups have made more than 5,000 quilts. She was led to start the program from “up above.” Urged to “make a quilt,” Kelly says “I didn’t need to make a

quilt and it was loud and clear to make a quilt, so I had to take classes.” Kelly witnessed volunteers making blankets for a hospital on a quilting trip to Hershey, Penn., “and that’s where I thought ‘I wonder if this is where I’m being led,’” she said. According to the Ronald McDonald House Charities Greater Cincinnati website, rmhcincinnati.org, they provide a “home-awayfrom-home” for families and children receiving medical treatment at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and other area hospitals. The Cincinnati house has served more than 23,000 families since opening in 1982 and serves 46 states and 30 countries, the site reads. Each family entering the Ronald McDonald House receives a welcome bag with a few items, including a quilt. The quilts are all “very individual, just

like the children,” Kelly said. “I think it’s a tremendous way for the whole Greater Cincinnati area ... to support what the Ronald McDonald House does for ... not just our community but the whole world,” Burlington quilter Joan Walter said. “They help children and families from all over the world, so it’s a great way for the Cincinnati community to support them.” Senior center director Diana Tripp says one of the YMCA’s main goals is social responsibility. “So the idea of being able to get seniors involved in something that helps others, especially children, we were just thrilled to death,” she said. “We thought it was a fantastic match.” For more information about the senior center, call 859-334-6518.

first stage version was produced in 1993. While the theater group typically does a family-oriented musical, this production “a little bit different, a little edgy,” she said. “For people of the ’60s and ’70s era, this is going to appeal to them a lot because it takes them down memory lane,” said Franxman. The upcoming production features a “diverse group” of actors, she said, with new members who have never been in a UCT play as well as returning actors. UCT board member Kyle Shumate said it’s important for theater-goers and non-goers alike to support the arts in their local community.

“To learn in the training that you have a 40 percent chance of surviving or bringing someone back to life, that hit it home for me,” Baker said. “I was like wow. I didn’t think much of it when we plugged it in. We though oh, he’ll come back out of this.” Bonfiglioli vice president of operations David Hall said, “We as a company understand that everything fell into place at the

right time.” He said an AED as something that’s “not required, but nice to have.” The company said that, from a safety perspective, it wanted to make sure it was available “in a just-in-case situation.” “(It’s) definitely one of the best investments we’ve ever made in our company,” said Hall. “They saved his life, they really did,” Hebron Fire Protection District Capt. Tony Scheben said. According to Scheben, the percentage of the AED shock working goes down with every minute

that passes. “They had this on so fast, he had a heart beat again before we got there,” he said. He gave kudos to the company for having the AED, training its employees and “not being afraid to use it.” “I think it’s a great example of how the forward thinking of the company really benefited their employees,” said Scheben. “The need for early access to these within the first minute or two of cardiac arrest makes a difference. Having them onsite is valuable to the time ... If that can be done long before we get there, the outcome is usually much better.” Bartley says acquiring an AED is the best thing any company can do. “It saved my life,” he said. “There’s no other way to put it. I would not be here today without that device.”

Both teams advanced to the Ninth Region Tournament from the highly competitive and balanced district. Ryle beat Boone County 66-62 behind 22 points from Will Stuhr and 13 from Tanner White. Brenden Stanley scored 22 for the Rebels and Hunter Hixenbaugh 14. Conner beat Cooper 62-49 in the other semi, rallying from a 16-point halftime deficit.

Given the unusual way girls basketball teams in the 33rd District have been beating each other all year, anything could have happened in the fourth quarter of the district championship game Feb. 27. But the usual outcome prevailed, as Boone County High School edged Conner 53-49 to win the title at Ryle. Both teams were scheduled to play quarterfinal games in the Ninth Region Tournament after Recorder print deadlines. Boone, which won its sixth title in the past seven years, took a 17-11 record into the tourney, and Conner 15-15. “This is a great group of girls,” said Boone head coach Nell Fookes. “We’ve had a tough schedule and our experience in these situations all year really helped us.” The Rebels were the three seed in the tourney after going 3-3 in seeding games, and the Cougars were the four seed after going 2-4. Boone knocked off two-seed Cooper, and Conner beat top-seed Ryle to advance to the final. The district championship came down to the fourth quarter. Conner led by six points early in the third quarter, and still had a one-point lead (3332) entering the fourth. The teams traded leads five times in the first three minutes of the frame, with two free throws from Macey Ford giving Boone the lead for good at 40-39. With Boone leading 42-41, Dallis Knotts hit a 3-pointer, then Alexis Switzer made a basket to put the Rebels up six at 47-41. “We just slowed down and started playing together more,” Switzer said. “We were playing good defense and we started executing better on offense. When we made (Conner commit) a turnover, we scored off of

it.” Switzer, who had 13 points, was the tournament most valuable player. Ford had 14 points and Knotts scored 12. Besides players making key shots, Fookes singled out junior guard Sadie Moore for strong defense and junior guard Maddy McGarr for solid point guard play. Switzer scored the winning basket to eliminate Cooper in the semifinals, netting two points with 10 seconds to go. The Rebels’ experience helped them get through the tough tournament. “It shows how much of a close team we are,” Switzer said. “We rely on each other and we have a great coach who calms us down.” Brooke Maines had 13 points for Conner, and Maddie Meyers 12. The Cougars are in the regional for the first time since 2008, when they went to the Sweet Sixteen. “Our kids played their hearts out, and so did (Boone),” said head coach Aaron Stamm. “It was a normal, rugged Ninth Region game. They made a few plays at the end and a few more free throws, and that was the difference. “ Stamm feels the Cougars are ready to make

some noise in the regional. “Our schedule was really beefed up this year and our kids were ready for the districts,” he said. Follow James Weber on Twitter, @RecorderWeber

NKU builds for next season By James Weber jweber@nky.com

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS —

Dunk City slammed shut the hopes of the Northern Kentucky University men’s basketball team for a happy end to its season. But the Norse can take some momentum and positives from getting a win in the final week of the 2014 season. NKU walloped Stetson 96-58 Feb. 27 at the Bank of Kentucky Center. Two days later, NKU fell 92-72 to Florida Gulf Coast University to end its second season in NCAA Division I. FGCU, which captivated basketball fans a year ago by becoming the first No. 15 seed to advance to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament, returned most of its lineup from that team and tied for the conference title in the Atlantic Sun Conference. FGCU was 14-4 in Northern Kentucky University's Jordan Jackson tries to recover a loose ball as Florida Gulf Coast University’s Brett Comer puts on the pressure at the Bank of Kentucky Center. NKU lost 92-72.CARA OWSLEY/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER (859) 904-4640 www.bryanthvac.com

The team was able to get some frustration out against Stetson, rolling from the opening tip. NKU made 15 of its first 22 shots and scored 57 points in the first half. The Norse made 13 threepointers in the game. The NKU women are 15-12 and third place in the A-Sun with an 11-5 record. NKU hosts its final two games of the regular season this week, playing USC Upstate (15-12,10-6) 7 p.m. Thursday and East Tennessee State (9-18, 511) 1 p.m. Saturday. While the Norse women cannot play in the conference tournament, they could still be invited to other tournaments. NKU earned a berth in the College Basketball Invitational last season, losing to the College of Charleston.

Young professionals need to be involved in community Things are happening in Northern Kentucky. Walk down the streets of Covington and notice new store fronts opening, coffee shops buzzing, art galleries posting beautiful work, and unique events to attend such as Art Off Pike and One Damn Bad Oyster Party. Boone County is growing in population, jobs and parks. Fairfield Avenue feels like it is expanding by the minute. Homes are selling and people are moving in. Meaningful conversations are happening about the direction of our community, what we want to see in the future, and how we plan to accomplish goals. These changes, from new businesses to the way people are talking and feeling about the community, are intentional and purposeful. They stem from executed plans that

I am sent opportunities to join committees, sit in public meetings, and participate. As a young professional in the Northern Kentucky community I try to contribute to these opportunities as much as possible. I want to make sure I feel ownership in helping shape the landscape of this community for the fu-

As president of LEGACY, the premiere young professional organization in Northern Kentucky, I am given the chance to interact with other young professionals from a variety of industry sectors on a regular basis. The young professional community here is full of unique and diverse minds that can be incredibly influential in shaping the direction of our community’s future.

Schwenke’s farm on the Ohio River produced more bushels of corn per acre (365) than any other farm in Kentucky last year. It was my honor to welcome him to the Kentucky State Senate as the new president of the Kentucky Corn Growers Association. The agricultural industry in Kentucky and the United States literally feeds the world. It’s hard to believe that less than 2 percent of us are involved in production agriculture, but we are producing the most food in the history of our state and country. We should be thankful to people like the Schwenke family and other farmers who not only work hard, but work smart, to provide us the high-quality, reasonablypriced food we enjoy, and often take for granted.

The Vision 2015 planning process was co-lead by professionals under the age of 40, local executives are continually offering their time to mentor, and more often than not change makers ask, “Where are the young professionals?” It is a good question. Where are we? It is our responsibility to show up, to participate, and sit at the table. There are so many ways to do this: sit on a board, join a committee, join an organization, volunteer, and make sure your voice is heard. The decisions that are made today will shape the future of our community. Our view of the future has a different horizon and with that view comes unique ideas and innovative thought that can be catalytic to a community. We are the future of this community and it

We had a forum at the med center for people to come and share their thoughts about what they feel should be important priorities for the legislature’s work. Many were concerned, as am I, about education funding. However, as I listen to conversation about education as a pre-requisite for a good job, I can’t help but feel a bit sad that we as a state are losing one of the most important aspects of a good education. That is a firm basis in what some call a classical education: English, philosophy, history, arithmetic. This is our foundation, even though times change. I believe people who live the most fulfilling

Thank goodness for West Virginia. It’s a statement we often hear when a survey comes out ranking Kentucky at or near the bottom in regards to our health or our economy. USA Today recently published a report entitled “The Most Miserable States in the USA” that, based on survey results, ranked Kentucky as the second most miserable state in the country. Only West Virginia was ranked worse in the survey. It’s proof that we in Kentucky have remained stagnant for too long, and we as a commonwealth must take bold steps to overcome it. That is why the Kentucky Right to Work Act was filed recently. The act, which was filed as House Bill 496, simply states “... No employee shall be required, as a condition of employment or to stay employed to become a member of a labor organization or pay any dues.” Those of us who advocate for right to work fully support a person’s right to join a union, but at the same

time we also fully support the right for a person not to Sal Santoro join one as well. COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST The COLUMNIST reasons for filing the Right to Work Act are based on independent studies and data that show states with right to work laws have an advantage when attracting new businesses and expanding their economies. The U.S. Department of Commerce reported the percentage growth in total private sector jobs over the past decade was 15.3 percent for states with right to work laws, and 7.3 percent in states without them. Kentucky’s rate was a sluggish 6.9 percent. According to the U.S. Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, the percentage growth in real privatesector employee compensation in states with right to work laws is

14.2 percent, compared to 6.1 percent in states without right to work laws. Like with the previous statistics, Kentucky ranked low at 4.3 percent. These are just two examples of why Kentucky must move out of the way of the free market like Indiana, Tennessee and even Michigan has done to enable more job creation and let our citizens find better opportunities for employment, while strengthening our economy and putting more real dollars in the pockets of our workers. That is why the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, the Kentucky Association of Manufacturers, the Association of Builders and Contractors of Kentuckiana and a host of local chambers support House Bill 496. It’s time to bring real choice to the commonwealth and make Kentucky a right to work state. Sal Santoro (R-Florence) represents part of Boone County. Email him at sal.santoro@lrc.ky.gov.

Filmakers offer hope from Heartland’s hate

By Karen Meiman kynews@nky.com

Colorful, creative quilts hang on the walls of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati, providing a tapestry that depicts life. The story of African Americans – their challenges, their struggles, their perseverance, their triumphs – is told through the variety of cloth sewn together to portray historical events. The common cord, however, is hate. It is woven throughout the display spanning centuries. It grows brighter in the 21st century. It waits under the surface for its time to emerge. A local filmmaker wants to remove hatred from future depictions through her newest documentary, “Hate Crimes in the Heartland.” “People think we have gotten past all this,” says filmmaker and Wilder resident Rachel Lyon, as she views the quilts inside the Freedom Center. “But all it takes is a Trayvon Martin ... There is a segment of society that is angry, hurting and they don’t like people.” Violent hate crimes are more prevalent today, Lyon said. It’s not always about race. Religion and sexuality also stir up hated. This is Lyon’s 65th documentary. It is also her favorite, because it offers hope for change. Lyon has high expectations for her movie. She believes it can alter beliefs by promoting an environment of free expression, “healing and understanding.” Her movie places the national spotlight on the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot and the 2012 Good Friday murders. “Hate Crimes in the Heartland,” premiered last month during Black History Month in

the Freedom Center’s Harriet Tubman Theater. Cincinnati was one of seven cities chosen to premiere the movie. Bavand Karim, a lecturer of Electronic Media and Broadcasting and producer-director for NorseMedia at Northern Kentucky University, served as the movie’s associate producer. “I think the movie has a lot to offer to the residents of Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati,” Karim said. “I think that people in the Midwest remain generally unaware of how their quality of lives can improve if they apply a greater degree of understanding, emotional intelligence, and cultural sensitivity toward outsiders.” Karim said he believes we live in an area that resonates change. “Having lived in larger, more progressive cities, it is apparent to me how smaller cities like Tulsa and Cincinnati exist in a kind of bubble that is resistant to social progress and change,” he said. “It is our duty as a human family to fight for social and civil equality on all fronts, and to address the misguided traditions of the past as what they are – mistakes.” The Tulsa riots never received national attention. “It was somewhat an ‘Open secret,’” said Lyon. “Local books were written about it, but nothing national.” By looking to the past, we can change the future, the filmmakers believe. “I think the lesson for all of us as Americans is that racial bigotry and hatred will never dissolve unless we engage in honest dialogue about our differences, fears, and the cultural and social factors that drive us apart,” Karim said. “This film is about more than hate crimes,” Lyon said. “It offers hope.”

Filmmaker and Wilder resident Rachel Lyon premiered her film “Hate Crimes in the Heartland” recently at the Underground Freedom Museum.KAREN MEIMAN/FOR THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

It’s easier to send get well card to St. E patients By Amy Scalf ascalf@nky.com

EDGEWOOD — Anyone with Inter-

net access can send a free greeting to patients in St. Elizabeth Healthcare centers. The new Care Card program offers more than 60 different cards for patients registered at any of St. Elizabeth’s six Northern Kentucky facilities: Edgewood, Florence, Fort Thomas, Covington, Grant and Falmouth. Senders may choose from humorous get-well cards, faith-based encouragements, congratulations to new families or greetings that honor the recipient’s military service. Each of the cards include a personalized message or senders can choose from several prewritten sentiments. Visit www.stelizabeth.com/carecard to send cards, which will be hand-delivered by volunteers twice a day, Monday through Friday. In order to send a card, the sender needs to input his or her own name, as well as the patient’s first and last name, and the facility’s location. According to Guy Karrick, St. Elizabeth’s public relations manager, the Care Card program offers more options at more locations than

were previously provided for inpatients. Care Cards are free and are not available for outpatients, employees, patients who are in the emergency room or who have been discharged. The new greeting card program was designed by Seed Strategy of Crestview Hills, as a donation, according to Jenelen Dulemba, St. Elizabeth’s director of volunteer services. “These new cards will help inspire healing, lend congratulations to new additions to the family, and bring some fun and joy into the lives of those we serve at St. Elizabeth,” she said.

Mussel, farro recipes welcome Lenten season

I

know I say this just about every year at this time, but I can’t believe it’s already Lent. The wild yellow aconite that our dear friend, Ike Leaf, helped me plant years ago is already up in my woods bordering the river. These two occurrences make me realize that spring will be a reality soon. With the abundance of fresh seafood available this time of year, try new recipes while adding bonus points for your health. Check out my blog for my mom’s salmon patty recipe with cucumbersour cream sauce.

Mussels steamed with white wine and shallots Delicious with crusty bread to mop up juices or atop linguine. Mussels that are open before cooking should be discarded. Likewise, any that are not open after cooking should be tossed out. Substitute butter for the olive oil if you want. Olive oil ⁄4 cup minced shallots 4 real large cloves garlic, minced 2 pounds cleaned mussels 1 cup dry white wine or more as needed Handful fresh parsley Chopped fresh tomatoes (optional) 1

Give bottom of very large pot a good coating of olive oil. Over medium heat, add shallots and half the garlic. Cook a couple of minutes, don’t let garlic brown. Add mussels and turn heat to

high. Stir well to coat and add rest of garlic, and wine. Cook about 5 minutes, or until musRita sels are Heikenfeld opened. RITA’S KITCHEN Sprinkle with parsley and tomatoes, and serve.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Stockpot or Dutch oven: What’s the difference? A stockpot typically is taller than a Dutch oven. A Dutch oven is shorter with more surface area on the bottom. They both can hold the same amount of food, depending upon the size. If you have to choose, choose the Dutch oven since it’s more versatile.

Farro with onions, garlic and cheese

Farro is an ancient, healthy wheat whose history goes back thousands of years. It comes in several forms. Semipearled farro is what I use since it cooks quickly. This complex carbohydrate contains fiber, which helps lower cholesterol better than brown rice, and also helps the immune system, along with helping you feel fuller longer and with more energy. ⁄2 cup onion, chopped 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 cup semi-pearled farro 3 cups liquid (vegetable, chicken or beef broth) Romano or Parmesan 1

Usher in the Lenten season with Rita’s steamed mussels.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD cheese

Pour in 2 tablespoons or so of olive oil in a pan, and add onions and garlic. Cook for a few minutes until onions are soft. Add farro and cook until coated and smells fragrant, again about a few minutes. Add liquid, and cook partly covered until farro is done, about 25 minutes. It will taste chewy. Drain excess liquid if necessary and add salt and pepper. Sprinkle with cheese.

Tips from Rita’s kitchen Unpearled/hulled farro takes an hour to cook. Stir in frozen mixed vegetables with the farro. Add mushrooms with onions and garlic.

Can you help?

Round steak with red gravy. Anderson Township reader Holly Nance really wants to be able to make her mom’s round steak. Here’s what she said, so if you can help,

let me know. “My mother used to make a good round steak with a red gravy that we all enjoyed. She passed away right before last Thanksgiving and now I do not have that recipe of hers, as I know she made that from her head and nothing was written down. I do remember she said she cut the round steak into pieces, coated them with flour, browned it a bit in a large skillet and then later she poured ketchup all over it - that’s all I can remember!!! Can you help with this

one and fill me in on what you think would be the rest of this recipe? Surely there has to be a recipe out there similar to this. We would all like to carry on with this meal in our family.” Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator, Jungle Jim's Eastgate culinary professional and author.

Question: How soon can I start pruning my trees and planting my garden? When will the early spring bulbs start to come up and add some color to my drab landscape? Answer: Indeed, I think we are all ready for spring. It’s a bit late this year. All the snow and cold weather this winter has slowed the progress of spring. Some years after a mild winter, we’ll see early bloomers such as yellow crocus, Witchhazel, winter honeysuckle, and winter aconites (Eranthis) starting to flower in early February. In mid-February, we sometimes see blooms of Japanese Apricot, helleborus, leatherleaf mahonia, early daffodils and Narcissus, Siberian squill (Scilla), corneliancherry dogwood (Cornus mas), and silver maple. By late February, we can occasionally enjoy the flowers of purple crocus, Japanese cornel dogwood, snowdrops (Galanthus), overwintered pansies, anemones, Glory of the Snow (Chionodoxa), pussy willow, red maple, and the elms. If you see any of these or other flowers in bloom, please call me at 586-6101 to report them on our bloom list, or email me at mklahr@uky.edu. You may also request a copy of our 2013 Bloom List that shows last year’s starting flowering

dates for various plants throughout the year. In the home orchard, you Mike can start Klahr pruning your apple HORTICULTURE CONCERNS and pear trees any time now. As soon as it warms up a bit, on a warm day, you can apply dormant oil to kill overwintering mites and scale insects. Dormant oil is applied to trees in early spring before buds swell, in order to protect them from scale insects. However, you should not spray dormant oil when air temperature is below 40 degrees F, or when it is likely to drop below 40 degrees within 24 hours. So listen to the weather forecast. Your crabapple, apple and pear trees will probably also need a bactericide spray of fixed copper while the tree is dormant, in order to protect against bacterial fireblight disease. But don’t mix the fixed copper with the dormant oil. (Note: fixed copper is not the same as copper sulfate). In the vegetable garden, start preparing the soil just as soon as possible, but don’t till it while it’s wet. During the first two weeks of March, weather and soil permitting, you can nor-

Strategies for controlling weight: the ‘plate method’

B

etter health through weight control can reduce the risk of developing chronic health problems, including heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and some cancers. One strategy for weight control is to use the “plate method,” which is a food-awareness tool that helps change habits and attitudes toward food and eating. The plate method helps you make healthy choices, eat more highfiber foods, control carbs and increase your intake of vegeta-

bles and fruits. Start by downsizing. Your plate, that is. Diane OverMason sized EXTENSION plates NOTES encourage larger servings, making it virtually impossible to prevent overeating. Choose a dinner plate that is no more than nine inches in diameter. Rethink how you fill your plate. Fill half of your plate with vegeta-

bles and fruit. Choose non-starchy veggies, and eat both raw and cooked. Opt for salad greens and other nonstarchy vegetables including broccoli, carrots, green beans and cauliflower. Fill only one-fourth of your plate with grains and other starchy foods such as rice, potatoes or pasta. Any food made from wheat, rice, oats, cornmeal, barley, quinoa, millet or other cereal is a grain product. Choose whole-grain foods over refined, making at least half of your daily intake whole grain. The remaining onefourth of your plate may be filled with a low-fat protein. Aim

for 3 to 4 ounces of lean protein twice a day, choosing options such as chicken, turkey, tofu, fish, beef, pork, eggs or cheese. Avoid frying foods, as this may add unnecessary and unhealthy calories. As an alternative to meat, healthful cooked beans count as protein. There are many to choose from: pinto, black, lentils, navy, split pea, garbanzo, lima, and black-eyed peas, to name a few. Replace sugar-filled soda with a glass of low- or non-fat milk or non-dairy beverage. Calcium-rich products include milk, cheese, milk-based desserts such as pudding, and calcium-enriched nondairy beverages for those who cannot con-

sume dairy products. Choose fruit for dessert. Explore the many options available throughout the year in the local groceries and at the local farmers markets. Rethinking your plate can take time, so don’t get discouraged. Changing habits accumulated over a lifetime will be challenging, but well worth the reward of improved health. Visit choosemyplate.gov for more information about a valuable tool to guide us to controlling our weight and leading a healthier life.
