BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

‘Things are moving forward’ Union leaders hear update on town center progress By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

UNION — Boone County Planning Commission director Kevin Costello gave Union officials an update on the proposed Union Town Center at a recent meeting of the Union City Commission. In addition to the fact that “things are moving forward” with the purchase of right of way for the Mt. Zion Road project, Costello told commissioners a number of developers are interested in properties within the town center area. They’re also working with the Northern Kentucky Tri-County Economic Corp. to look at poten-

tially marketing the property. The Union Town Center is included in Tri-ED’s Signature Sites and Buildings catalog. Costello said there’s additionally been talk with Tri-ED about the “small office market.” “There’s very little inventory in Boone County,” he said. “A lot of it’s already taken up.” Work has taken place with Tri-ED staff to identify “niche businesses,” Costello said. The Union town plan calls for a mixed-use development consisting of housing, office, retail service and public use, and provides for the Town Center at the intersection of U.S. 42 and Mt. Zion Road. Request for qualifications went out to developers last summer. For the latest updates or more information about the Union Town Center project, visit uniontowncenterky.org.

This summer four Boone County residents will venture deep into the Darien jungle and San Blas islands in Panama. Dwelling among the indigenous Kuna tribes, they will stay in straw huts, living without electricity and, they hope, winning the trust and hearts of the people. “It means a lot to me to have this opportunity to go far away and show God’s love,” said Lyndi Tatter, 24, of Florence. Tatter and her friends Leighanne Schmoll, 20, of Burlington, and mother and daughter Kristen McClintock, 36, and Halle McClintock, 16, of Union will visit Panama to do mission work. They leave June 12 and will be in Panama for two weeks after training. The four friends attend church together at Heritage Fellowship in Florence, but are going on the mission trip through Global Expeditions, a ministry of Teen Mania based in See PANAMA, Page A2

Texas. Teen Mania provides young people with opportunities to spread the gospel throughout the world. According to globalexpeditions.com, since 1986, Global Expeditions has given more than 70,000 missionaries the opportunity to share their faith on short-term mission trips in more than 79 countries. This marks the third trip for Tatter and the McClintocks. “The first time I went was really hard,” Tatter said. “I kept thinking ‘I will never go on this mission trip again.’ But, then I got home and wow, I missed it.” Tatter said there’s not a day that goes by that she isn’t thinking about the Kuna tribes. As part of the trip, the young missionaries as-

sist with daily survival tasks like fishing and farming. They exchange culture while practicing English in makeshift schools, teaching Bible studies and playing with the children. “The Kuna Indians live very primitively,” Kristen said. “They live in huts, there’s no electricity and no indoor plumbing. They work really hard to preserve their culture, but they are open to God. They actually believe in many gods, they are entrenched in idolatry and worship many small wood-carved idols.” The Kuna, she said, are also very “relational” people, but “you have to build a relationship with them, earn their trust in order to bond.” That trust is earned through helping the people however possible, as well as prayer, said Halle. “One memory that really stands out for me was when we visited a

family who had a bad sickness,” she said. “We asked if they needed anything and they just wanted us to pray for them. We did. When we went back, they were doing good. We prayed again and went back the next day and they were all healed. The man told us: ‘I know that there really is a God if he can heal us from this.’” For Halle it was a victory – the reason she came. According to Kristen, the trip is also about exposing young people to the world around them. “Teenagers today are submerged in the culture here in America,” she said. “For kids to put their cellphones away and MacBooks away and truly experience that the whole world is not like America is a great opportunity.”

Meteor spotted over Florence

PRICE FAMILY CELEBRATES HALL OF FAME

By Melissa Stewart mstewart@nky.com

FLORENCE — If you saw what is described as a “fireball” around 11:05 p.m. last Thursday, you were not alone. The Recorder received a report about a meteor flying over Florence last Thursday night. According to the American Meteor Society, more than 50 witnesses reported a large fireball meteor over Ohio May 30. The fireball was seen primarily from Ohio and Indiana, but witnesses from Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylva-

nia and North Carolina also made reports. The society has developed technology that can plot the path of any fireball reported to their system. According to amsmeteors.org, the accuracy of these paths is dependent on the number of witnesses who report the event and their distribution around the fireball. This particular event provided a large volume and good geographic distribution of witnesses. The society urges witnesses of the fireball to fill out an official report with them. Visit their website to do so.

The family of country entertainer Kenny Price celebrates his induction into the Northern Kentucky Music Legends Hall of Fame June 2 at the Behringer-Crawford Museum in Devou Park. Price’s son, Chris, third from left, of Burlington, accepted the award on behalf of his father who died in 1987. Nicknamed the “Round Mound of Sound,” Price had a major hit with “The Sheriff of Boone County” and charted 34 singles. He was a “Hee Haw” cast member on television. More photos from the ceremony will be in the June 13 issue. NANCY DALY/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

Graduate’s steps reflect spirit of determination Vasseur had faith he would walk again By Melissa Stewart mstewart@nky.com

UNION — When Ryle High

School student Zach Vasseur walked across the stage to receive his diploma May 24, the entire auditorium erupted in applause. “There are no words that come to my mind to describe exactly how I felt seeing him walk across the stage, only pure emotion,” Ryle counselor Connie Kepf said. “My tears flowed freely. To know how hard he had worked to be able to accomplish that, how much he had struggled, to know what his family had to be experiencing watching him.” A little more than three years ago doctors told Vasseur that he had less than a 1 percent chance of ever walking again. He had severely injured his spine during training for the Loretta Lynn’s Amateur National Motocross competition. “I was making a 92-foot jump and going too fast,” he said. “I went 120 feet and I dropped from the sky. I was paralyzed from the waist down.” When he heard his chances for walking, he decided he was going to beat the odds. After years of physical therapy and using a walker for support, he walked across the stage. “I’ve had a lot of people behind me, my family, people in the community and at school,” he said. “My family is my main motivation. They had faith in me that I’d walk again and that gave me faith in myself.” Vasseur attends therapy three times a week for two hours

at a time. Administration and staff members at Ryle helped him work out his schedule of classes around his therapy. It’s not easy, he admits, but it’s always been worth it. “There’s no quitting,” he said. Vasseur has kept a positive attitude through it all, said Kepf, who’s worked closely with him the last three years. “Sometimes we forget that a positive attitude is able to overcome much of what life deals us,” she said. “Zach refused to allow himself to be defined by his injury.” Vasseur said he plans to attend the University of Cincinnati to study mechanical engineering. One day he wants to design and build boats – a passion he’s had since his youth. Kepf has no doubt Vasseur will be successful in his endeavors. “I look forward to staying in touch with him and attending his next commencement ceremony within the next few years,” she said. “He is without a doubt a wonderful young man who has touched many of us very deeply with his example of how to overcome obstacles.” Want to continue the conversation?

Amanda Simms’ secondgrade class at Florence Elementary School completed its Accelerated Reader race by going beyond the requirements. Her class earned 1,697 points – 447 points above the target point value. This year’s theme was “The Amazing Race,” which focused on being mentally and physically ready to run your own race. Because Simms’ class was the first in the school to reach the Victory Lunch, they were treated to a trip to Town and Country Sports Complex and participated in more physical fun activities.

UNION — Ethan Brennan had spent his baseball career as a starting pitcher but has spent most of his junior season coming out of the bullpen. When his Ryle High School baseball teammates needed him the most, however, Brennan’s muscle memory allowed him to go the full seven innings and deliver the biggest win of the year to the Raiders. Brennan’s three-hit shutout lifted Ryle to a 4-0 win over Dixie Heights May 30 in the Ninth Region championship game in Florence. Ryle took a 32-7 record into the Sweet 16 of the state baseball tournament June 4 in Lexington after Recorder print deadlines. The Raiders enjoyed their first regional title since 2007. “I’ve been a starter pretty much my entire life since I’ve been playing baseball, so I’m used to going longer,” said Brennan, who was overjoyed to be a regional champ. “It’s awesome. It’s amazing, actually.” Brennan stranded a runner at second in the third inning, then left two runners on base in the top of the seventh to end the game. “He was on his game,” said Ryle head coach Pat Roesel. “He pitched real well his last two outings. He had good command and he was lights out.” Roesel had informed Brennan the day before the game that he would get the nod in the regional final. “I wasn’t really surprised because we had gone through all of our main pitchers,” Brennan said. “In the bullpen warming up, I felt really good so I was thinking it could be my day. I was feeling really good at the start. I tried to get ahead with the fastball, and then work in the curve and the twoseam (fastball) a little bit. I got the first strike a lot of times and that really helped me.” The Raiders scratched together single runs in the second through fifth innings after getting the leadoff batter on base in all those innings. In the second inning, junior Tom Deters had a leadoff single and senior Tyler Lonnemann drove him in on a sacrifice fly. Junior Mason Forbes led off the third with a hit and

Deters got an RBI with a sacrifice fly. In the fourth, junior Eric Clarkson hit a double and scored on a two-out hit from Lonnemann. Forbes got on base to lead off the fifth and Deters notched another sac fly to make it 4-0. Forbes was the tourney’s most valuable player. Lonne-

mann, Brennan and Thomas Baumann were all-tourney picks. Ryle led the Ninth Region in offense all season, averaging nearly eight runs per game, but had to rely on consistent smallball against Dixie to complement the pitching of Brennan. “You can’t count on hitting every day,” Roesel said. “Sometimes you don’t have it, but Ethan was the man. You get the leadoff guy on, your chances of scoring go up exponentially. We just scratched it out.” With a win Tuesday, Ryle would play Lone Oak or Central Hardin 8:30 p.m. Thursday, June 6. Ryle’s semifinal game is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. Friday and the state championship game is 7 p.m. Saturday, June 8. All games are at Whitaker Bank Ballpark in Lexington. Winning the regional title was a moment to remember for the Raiders, who got together in a big pile near the pitching mound after the championship game ended. “When we got down, we got back up. We’re all a team and we pick each other up,” Forbes said. “We all love each other. One person gets down, someone is there to pick him up. It’s a brotherhood.” Follow James on Twitter @RecorderWeber

winter sports season and provide another activity for student participation. To date, 62 students have expressed interest. “I am excited about the opportunity to be the Colonels wrestling coach. I will work diligently to make this sport a success at CovCath and to represent the school with class and sportsmanship,” said Coach Johnson. Dan Osborne will be head assistant/JV head coach. Osborne comes to CCH with nine years of coaching experience in both Kentucky and Ohio. Osborne coached at Glen Este High School last year where he specialized in working with

the upper weights. In addition, he was the varsity defensive line coach for the Glen Este football team. As an athlete, he was a four-year letterman, district placer, conference champion and a two-time captain at Cincinnati Anderson High School. Covington Catholic principal Bob Rowe said, “Over the last couple of years, several stakeholders have expressed interest in establishing a wrestling program here at Covington Catholic. We are very fortunate to have found such a qualified and capable coach as Dave Johnson. We look forward to his joining the staff and are confident he will develop a quality wrestling program for our young men.”

HEBRON — Except for one player, the opponent was different. But the end result was disappointingly familiar for the Conner High School softball team. The Cougars lost a tough 3-2 decision to Notre Dame in the Ninth Region championship game June 2 at Northern Kentucky University. The Cougars ended the season with a 23-10 record. Conner was playing in the regional final for the seventh-straight year and eighth out of nine, but the Cougars have only won one of those games (2009). “Both teams battled really hard,” Conner head coach Kristin Koors said. “It was a good game between two good teams. There were a few calls that kind of went their way, but you still have to overcome those and find a way to win it.” Conner faced a familiar pitcher in Notre Dame sophomore Haylee Smith, who is in her first season at NDA after transferring from Ryle. Smith had helped Ryle beat Conner the past three seasons in the Ninth Region final, two of those times from the pitching circle. Smith scattered six hits and struck out seven Cougars. She kept a 3-1 lead down the stretch, when Conner began the fifth and sixth innings by getting its first two runners on base. In the sixth, Conner had runners on second and third to start the inning before Smith induced two soft pop flies to the infield. Conner scored one run on a wild pitch but left the tying run on third base. “We battled hard and put the ball in play. We had several opportunities. We just couldn’t step up and get the big hit at the right time,” Koors said. “We

were right where you want to be, but I have to give credit to (Notre Dame). That could have been a huge inning that could have gone our way. They stepped up and played well that inning.” Eighth-grade Alexia Snelbaker and junior outfielder Sydney Himes were all-tourney picks. They each had doubles in the final, as did freshman second baseman Jenna Hicks and sophomore pitcher Elizabeth Sims. Brooke Maines and Bethany Maines scored the Conner runs, the latter as a courtesy runner for Snelbaker after her double. Himes, the three spot in the lineup, is poised for a big senior year. “Himes is a great athlete,” Koors said. “She’s smart. She’s fast. She plays the game the way

it should be. She finds a weakness on the other team, she’s going to take advantage of it. I’m expecting a ton from her next year as a senior. She’s got the capability to go to the next level and play, and that’s something she wants to do.” Starting right fielder Rachel Mowl is the lone senior for the Cougars, who will look to get back over the hump next season. “We talked a lot about that this season, making a play and making the next person step up and do something,” Koors said. “Our overall team speed, we used it a lot to our advantage. We have to step up and take it to the next level. Hopefully with a little bit of age next year, they can find a way to put it together.” Follow James on Twitter @RecorderWeber

Sanitation district cost should be issue I read in the paper last week candidates in Boone County are rolling out their campaigns for 2014. Boone Judge-executive Gary Moore, always talking about how much he has accomplished, will be facing off against at least one member of the Fiscal Court, County Commissioner Matt Dedden. Matt Dedden is a friend of mine with good intentions but he has really shown very little independence from Moore, making a credible run difficult but not impossible. Cathy Flaig CommisCOMMUNITY sioner Dedden RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST and State Senator John Schickel, another name mentioned as a potential candidate, need to focus on two real issues in this race, a lack of leadership and an absentee landlord in the judge’s office! For all Judge Moore’s bragging the stark reality is, Boone County is blessed with access to three interstates, the 42 miles of riverfront and a once nationally recognized airport. Basically people who are looking for a place to work or live are looking at location, location, location. It has been irrelevant who’s held the gavel during court meetings for the last 15 years, the wisdom and foresight of previous office holders to develop the infrastructure has enabled Moore to reap the harvest of what others have sewn. Today, however, change has taken hold. Traffic congestion is a nightmare in many places and the airport is a mere shadow of what it once was. Boone County voters need to be asking some tough questions moving forward, beginning with the Sanitation District. Why did Gary Moore vote for a consent decree causing SD 1 rates to jump 90 percent while debt has become over 40 percent of the district budget? Why did Gary Moore support SD 1 awarding bids for the construction that Taj Mahal off 3-L with cost overruns and change orders of over 30 percent? Why did Gary Moore support SD 1 spending $100 million on the Boone County sewage tunnel when there was a bonded bid for $10 million less? Sanitation is one of the most expensive utilities we have. On Moore’s watch rates are up and debt is at an alltime high. Some question why, to some the answer is simple, Mr. Moore and the other two judges- executive have made a niche industry of raising campaign cash from those doing work at SD 1. It might be said they have found a way to provide for the public financing of campaigns through their pay for play scheme. Cathy Hudson Flaig of Hebron is a former Boone County commissioner.

Angels in our community It all started several weeks ago when I got a call from Northern Kentucky Senior Services. Since they receive state funding, they wanted to invite lawmakers to ride along on their Meals on Wheels program. I gladly accepted their invitation and met with the person I was going to ride with, Mr. Floyd Grace. I was immediately impressed with his outgoing personality. I jumped in his car and we began our day. We stopped at apartments, houses and even one motel room, 18 in all. The common denominator at each stop was an elderly person in need of assistance. The other common denominator was Floyd’s compassion with each client. He knew each of them and their circumstances personally. He gave hugs, put meals in just the right spot in the refriger-

ator and even shut off a forgotten kitchen faucet that had been left running. The public funds spent on Meals on John Schickel Wheels and COMMUNITY employees RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST like Mr. Grace are some of the best dollars spent by the state of Kentucky. Floyd, who is also an accomplished musician, shared with me that he had been working for the program for over 17 years now. While it was easy for me to see in just one day that his job involved much more than just delivering meals, our conversations that day underscored that fact. During his time with Meals on Wheels, he had been the first to discover that two of his

clients had passed away. Thankfully, there were only happy experiences the day of my ride-along. The most memorable stop on our day was at an apartment complex for senior citizens where I met Helen. Before we even walked in, Floyd told me to be sure to ask Helen about her puzzles. As we entered, I could see why. Helen had a large, complicated puzzle laid out on the kitchen table and was working on it. My question was rewarded with a tour of her small apartment where Helen, nearly 90 years old, showcased several framed puzzles she has completed through the years. Most of them were scenes of churches and nature. She really loved those puzzles and they were beautiful. Floyd and I visited with Helen and one of her neighbors for about 15 minutes

before heading to our next stop. As we were leaving, we asked Helen if there was anything else we could do for her before we left. She mentioned that she needed a new bed. She showed me what she was currently using and it was easy to see why it was giving her problems. It was small and broken down. I met several angels in our community during my ridealong, including Mr. Floyd Grace and the other employees of the Northern Kentucky Senior Center. I would meet even more as we worked to find Helen a new bed. You’ll meet them in my next column. State Sen. John Schickel, R-Union, represents the 11th Senate District which includes Boone and Gallatin counties and part of Kenton County. Follow on Twitter @SenatorSchickel.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Senior center thanks library staff

The Walton Senior Center received a kind donation from the Boone County Public Library’s staff. The seniors from the center were so excited and talked all afternoon about the kindness. “This was the most lively I have seen our seniors in a while,” said Rosie Rose, president of the Walton Advisory Council. Smiles and hugs continued thoughout the day as did chatter on what they will use the nice donation for. After a long discussion, they agreed that a treat to the Kincaid Theater and a few hot cooked lunches at the senior center would be nice. Maybe even a Taco Bar. Most of the seniors have never even tried a taco. “Boone County is a wonderful place where the community help each other” Mrs. Rose stated. “A place where senior citizens are taken care of and not forgotten.” Jinny Ussel and her staff at the Boone County Main Library are very kind and the donation was a big surprise and is very much appreciated, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Don’t leave a polluted inheritance

I am writing because our Young Women’s church group just finished cleaning Longbranch Road with the Boone County Solid Waste Trash for Cash program. While we were picking up

the area, we were surprised at how much and the kinds of garbage we found. Some of the items included an old metal rake, lots of plastic bags, pizza boxes, packing boxes, way too many liquor bottles, and picnic supplies along with paper waste. Considering that this road runs past Cooper High School and through nicer neighborhoods, we were surprised with the items found. Thankfully most of these things were found in the wooded areas, not homeowners’ lawns. Our biggest concern was that it appeared that frequent drinking parties take place along the stream bed. Homeowners and others who drive along the road need to be alert and report these events. The waterways (which contribute to our drinking water) are being polluted and wildlife is endangered by broken glass and plastic bags. This is not a pretty inheritance for future generations, or even our own. We all need to be watchful and careful. LeeAnn Smith Union

Thanks for support

Although most citizens in Florence may have never walked a mile in the shoes of an abused or neglected child, that didn’t stop them from raising several miles of pennies to help those very kids. A heartfelt thanks from all of us at Sunrise Children’s Services to everyone in Florence who contributed their change during the Republic Bank and Sunrise Chil-

dren’s Services Mile Of Pennies campaign in April. Republic Bank generously took part in our efforts during Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Month to raise funds to help care for the abused and neglected children Sunrise serves across Kentucky, a task we’ve been dedicated to since 1869. At all of Republic’s Kentucky banking centers, including Florence, customers dropped in their change. The result? Seventy jars filled with money that will go directly to care for our children. Thank you Republic Bank for your generous support and willingness to step up and go the distance for the children of Kentucky.

Hall of Fame sounds like popularity contest

As the daughter, granddaughter, great-granddaughter, and niece of veterans of every modern war (with the exception of the Korean War), I am all for anything and everything that can be done for and in honor of any veteran anywhere. But I have just read the article, “Ky. Veterans Hall of Fame Launched,” and I am confused. I understand wanting to establish a Hall of Fame, but for veterans? Whether or not a veteran died during his or her service or came home without a scratch, they are all still veterans. They all fought. They all

continue to fight. Those who returned alive fight to live a normal life and get the benefits they deserve from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Even the dead fight a battle to be recognized. Friends and family take up the mantle, so to speak, and keep their names on the lips of those alive today to remember their sacrifices. How do you distinguish who should be in a Hall of Fame? These people are not ball players; you can’t decide who belongs there based on performance. The person had to go “above and beyond.” What defines that? My dad was 17 when he joined the Marines, and his mom had to sign his paperwork so they would allow him to go. He really wanted to go, so let’s induct him? In Vietnam, his helicopter crashed, rolled down a hill, was ablaze, and took enemy fire. It was a battalion of North Vietnamese Army members against about six U.S. Marines. He was burned and shot, and he still has shrapnel in his leg today. That’s it, let’s induct him? At the end of the article it says, “It’s the common man,” he said. “You don’t need a person who has a lot of accolades; it’s the person who is the real deal.” All veterans are the real deal and should be treated as such. This Hall of Fame idea sounds like a popularity contest. That’s not a way to honor anyone; that’s the way to dishonor everything any veteran has done. Amy Wright Florence

MELODY’S BOOT CAMP INVESTS IN HEALTH, COMMUNITY

By Melissa Stewart mstewart@nky.com

FLORENCE — Fitness isn’t just about physical well-being at Melody’s Boot Camp and Lifestyle Fitness. It’s about investing in quality of life – creating a healthy community. “My business started as a way to give back,” owner Melody Hoppius of Burlington said. “My focus is to give back and bring the community together, that’s what we need.” Melody’s Boot Camp offers more than a running club, an array of fitness programs and emotional support. It offers members the opportunity for community service. The outreach focus started several years ago when Melody’s partnered with Impact Life Church in Florence to help the church build a food pantry. Members brought in food items for the amount of pounds they lost. Since then, Melody’s Boot Camp has collected 5,000 pounds of food for the pantry. Food drives are now held twice a year during the spring and fall Get Fit sessions. “Melody’s Boot Camp has been great,” Impact Store House Food Pantry director Rebecca Arsenault said. “They are our biggest supplier, they’re the reason the pantry got started, it skyrocketed and it has been wonderful. They donate so much to us that we don’t have to purchase any items. We know we can count on them.” According to Arsenault, the food pantry has given 35,000 pounds of food have to families in need. “Last year we helped 1,000 families,” she said. “This year we’ve already helped hundreds, giving out 2,000 pounds of food already.” Community Outreach Committee coordinator Amy Richie of Burlington said the goal is to keep members aware that there are needs in the community. “As a business, helping others makes us more a part of the

community,” she said. “We do as we see a need.” The needs are plentiful and the efforts abounding. Other efforts include a shoe drive where members collect all styles and sizes of shoes. Not even a year later, 350 pairs have been donated to the Heart House Homeless Shelter in Aurora, Ind., and Rose Garden Home Mission in Covington. Members also hold a bra drive, collecting gently used and new bras. Donations were split between the Women’s Crisis Center in Hebron and The Bra Recyclers in Arizona. “As our participants were losing weight and changing shape, they were able to put to use their previously supportive garments so we could find new use for them,” Ritchie said. Last October Melody’s Boot Camp started contributing to the Breast Cancer Support Fund to support Chicks and Chucks. Chicks and Chucks is a resource for breast cancer patients who have little or no financial means to acquire the products and services while battling the illness.

“In our future, we have plans for a Hoxworth Blood Drive, working with Habitat for Humanity and getting our youth active in giving back to those around them,” Ritchie said. “For us, a healthier lifestyle is more than just eating right and exercising. Being active in our community, giving back to provide for others and caring for others as a family is, simply, who we are.” Melody’s Boot Camp was formed in August 2009. Since it’s early beginnings of a few friends gathered in Hoppius’ back yard, the business has grown to more than 1,000 members and resulting in a loss of more than 20,000 pounds. “When I started the business it was just for fun,” Hoppius said. “I never saw it as a business even as it started to grow. Most businesses are out to make money, that is not my focus. I want to be seen as a business that gives and not takes. We’re about the people and the community.”

Rita shares Taste of Cincinnati recipes

My family’s tabouleh This is the time of year I pick wild grape leaves for scooping up tabouleh. You also can use leaf lettuce. This is a “go to taste” recipe, wonderful as a main or side dish, or stuffed into pita for a sandwich. I keep tweaking the recipe and here’s my latest. Tabouleh uses bulghur cracked wheat (great for lowering cholesterol and a good source of fiber). Every family has their own version. (Check out my blog for the tabouleh video). 1 cup bulghur cracked wheat, No. 2 grind 5 medium tomatoes, chopped fine, skin left on 1 bunch green onions, sliced thin, white and green parts 1 bunch parsley, chopped fine 1 small bunch radishes, chopped fine (optional) 1 large English cucumber, chopped fine, skin left on 1 bell pepper, chopped fine Cumin to taste, start with 1 teaspoon Handful chopped mint and basil (optional) Salt and pepper Olive, corn or safflower oil to taste (start with 4 tablespoons) Lemon juice to taste

1 large egg, lightly beaten Oil, about 1 tablespoon

Cover potatoes with cold water and cook until tender. Drain and cool just until they can be handled and peeled. While still warm, mash and stir in butter, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper. Then add egg, combining well. Form 1⁄2 cupfuls into four four-inch cakes. (If you want to chill for 30 minutes or so before or after forming patties, that is OK.). Add 3 tablespoons butter and oil to skillet over medium-low heat. After butter quits foaming, add cakes and cook about 5 minutes on each side, or until golden, adding more butter if necessary.

Place wheat in bowl and rinse under cool water three times. (Why three times? Because my mom said so!). Leave about a 1⁄4 inch of water after the third rinse on top of the wheat to soften it. Let sit for 15-20 minutes, until water is absorbed and wheat is tender. Squeeze to drain any remaining liquid out. Meanwhile, mix vegetables: Add all vegetables in large bowl, mixing gently. Add cumin, mint, basil and salt and pepper. Add wheat, and mix well. Add oil, a little at a time, and mix. Taste for seasonings. Add lemon juice to taste.

That’s why Wright and Riddle offer bow rentals, as well as instruction for children from age 6 to adults. “What we do is help them ward off their fear. They may be afraid of shooting, or think they’re not strong enough to shoot, or they may think it’s going to cost a lot of money,” said Wright. “Anyone can do it. You don’t need a specific skill. Anyone can come in and be taught.” Wright and Riddle both are certified train-

They hope to prepare teams for competition at the regional and national levels and someday help an archer get into the Olympics. More information about the range and their programs can be found at www.mmarchery.com . Wright said public interest has been piqued by archers in recent films, such as “The Hunger Games,” “Brave,” “War of the Arrows” and “The Avengers.” “A lot of people come in to de-stress,” said Riddle. “You have to relax and use focus and concentration.” Erin Coburn, an 11year-old archer who trains at M&M Archery Range, said she finds

So when he started training at the range, it soon became a family affair, which now includes Brenden’s 6year-old sister, Laykin, and their dad, Adam. “We looked for a long time for somewhere to do shooting sports.
