Rabbit Hash residents rescue teens from submerged vehicle By Melissa Stewart

RABBIT HASH — Chris Fryman doesn’t believe in fate, but wonders if he and his friends were destined to discover a car submerged in the Ohio River near the Rabbit Hash General Store late on the Fourth of July. “There were no screeching tires, no splashing, just a thud,” Fryman, of Rabbit Hash, recalled. “It was more out of curiosity that we walked in the direction (where) we heard the noise to see if someone had run off the road, and sure enough. …” Belleview-McVille Fire Protection District was called to the scene at 11:30 p.m. According to Fire Chief Jeff Hermes, the 17year-old driver and his passenger, 18, made a 40-foot drop off the road into the river in a Toyota Camry. The car had overturned. Fryman and his friends had been hanging out on the General Store porch when they decided to investigate the noise. “We were looking around and I heard my friend yell for help. He had seen the car in the water. It all went pretty fast from there,” Fryman said. “There was a lot of adrenaline and panic. It was a pretty desperate situation..” They rushed to the car. Water rose to their waists and they

Florence auto dealer helps rebuild rescue Jeep By Melissa Stewart

FLORENCE — When Lee Fogel, social media manager for Zimmer Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram in Florence, learned about Bryan Hutton and his 2012 Jeep Wrangler, Stomper, he could hardly believe the story. At the end of May, Hutton, of Dayton, Ohio, was visiting his hometown of Moore, Okla., when tornadoes devastated his old neighborhood. Hutton and Stomper came to the rescue. He used the 4x4 to pull the wreckage from atop of his old neighbors trapped inside their fallen walls. Once emergency response teams arrived, Stomper, with three flattened tires, continued to pull through for Hutton and those around it. The Jeep transported the injured to medical personnel and later helped haul families out of the area. “In a time of emergency he did all that he could to help his neighbors,” Fogel said. “You can’t be a better Samaritan than that. His story really moved us. We were also proud of our product, our Jeeps are strong. It gave everything it could give.” Stomper indeed gave everything; in fact, Hutton’s beloved Jeep was totaled. However, once the

Zimmer Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram in Florence has become a sponsor to rebuild Stomper, a Jeep Wrangler that was used in rescue missions after tornadoes struck Moore, Okla., at the end of May. THANKS TO LEE FOGEL

word spread about Hutton and his heroic acts with Stomper, a movement to save the Jeep began. Crocker Off Road Performance, a custom Jeep builder in Arizona, agreed to rebuild Stomper. Zimmer in Florence has agreed to become a sponsor for the project and donate parts. “We are happy to help the Huttons and help get Stomper back on the trail,” Fogel said. Hutton was so moved by Zimmer’s gesture, he decided to buy a new 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara for his wife, Brenda, from the Florence dealership. Brenda is currently in the military serving in Afghanistan. “As longtime sup-

porters of our troops we also are very grateful for Bryan’s wife serving our country and we have no doubt that it was heartwrenching for her to be so far away from Bryan and their son during this crisis,” Zimmer president Cathy Zimmer said. “Bryan, we tip our cap to you for stepping up and helping those in their time of need and forsaking your own needs and concerns. And the fact that your Wrangler Rubicon, Stomper, hung tough as nails just shows what ‘Only a Jeep’ really means.” Zimmer has been selling cars since 1929, locally for three generations.

Jamming with the Black-n-Bluegrass Girls By Kamellia Soenjoto Smith Recorder Contributor


Four girls tried to block her way but she pushed back, looking for any chance to get by. Then a small opening appeared. It was just big enough. She leaned forward on her roller skates, scrunched her shoulders together, and squirted through. People watching clapped their hands and cheered. But this wasn’t some case of bullying on the sidewalk, it was roller derby. And she’d just scored. Her name is Tiffany Work. She’s been competing in roller derby for six years. She loves it and calls it “addicting.” “It has given me a lot more confidence over the years,” Work said. “Maybe not so much being tough but being able to really speak up for myself.” On Saturday night, June 22, her team from Northern Kentucky, the Black-n-Bluegrass Rollergirls, battled the Cincinnati Rollergirls. The Bank of Kentucky Center at Northern Kentucky University was filled with screaming fans. All the roller girls on the team have a “skate name.” Work’s is Petal to the Metal. “Petal with a

“t,” like a flower petal, because I’m a florist,” she said. “So I’m a fast florist.” She has to be fast, she’s a jammer. “You have two jammers, one for each team. And you have four blockers from each team. So there are 10 girls out there all at once,” she explained. “The jammers are trying to get through all the blockers.” A team’s blockers will try to help their jammer advance while the others will try to keep her back and, if possible, knock her down. “So you’re playing offense and defense at the same time,” she continued. “After you make through once,

struggled to flip the car over. “I don’t know how we did it, turning the car over on its wheels,” he said. Joining Fryman in the rescue were Ken Steidle of East Bend, Lee Hartke of Rabbit Hash, Chris Frederick of Belleview Bottoms, Mike Calhoun of Rabbit Hash and Ben Ford. Mary Dailey of Rabbit Hash, who went to check out the “thud,” witnessed the rescue.

“You could see the passengers’ fingers hanging out of the partly busted window,” she said. “It felt like a long time, but it was a matter of seconds.” Unable to get the doors open, Fryman, “without really thinking” slammed his elbow into the driver side window. The friends pulled the driver from the car. “The driver was in and out of consciousness,” Fryman said. “I’d say he was a few seconds from drowning.” They pulled the passenger to safety. Fryman said police and an ambu-

lance arrived quickly. Hermes, of the fire protection district, was the first. “Just as I was pulling up I saw the guys pulling the driver and passenger onto the bank,” Hermes said. “They get all of the credit.” “A juvenile driver was cited for drunken driving and taken to St. Elizabeth,” said Boone County sheriff spokesman Tom Scheben. The passenger, Evan Rajbhandari, 18, of Wyoming, Ohio, was charged with alcohol intoxication. In Kentucky juveniles charged with crimes are not named. Fryman felt “tremendous relief” when the boys looked like they would be OK. “I’m not one who believes in fate, I believe I make my own destiny, but what happened. ... It scares me to think that maybe in 30 more seconds or if we had been short one person. ... I’m just really glad we were there.”

you start scoring. Every time you pass an opposing blocker you get a point.” To join the team, a beginner needs to attend a “boot camp” to learn the basic skills. What kind of skills? “Being able to skate backward, being able to stop, whips and pushes,” she answered. “We teach them how to fall properly. You don’t want to flail all over the place. You want to be able to get back up really fast.” It’s a rough sport. Work once broke her ankle. It’s common for the rollers to come home with bruises on their body. Becka Obermeyer, who’s known as Beka Rekanize, had to make sure that people wouldn’t misunderstand her bruises. “I was really up front when I started my new job,” she said. “I talked to my supervisor because I didn’t want them to think that there was some kind of trouble at home.” Dave Powell was one of the louder fans in the crowd. “It’s an amazing sport to watch. It’s fast, it’s athletic,” he said. Emily Matthews was there to cheer on one of her friends. “It’s great to see women come together,” she pointed out. Powell agreed. “It’s super empowering for women.”

Amateur drivers have chance to hit the gas By Kamellia Soenjoto Smith Recorder Contributor

FLORENCE — The green flag waved and she zoomed off. Darting around traffic cones, she played with the gas and the brake as her body was pushed against the seat, then the door, then the seat belts.

When it was over, her hands were shaking but she loved it. “It’s such an adrenaline rush, so exciting,” Deana Kraft shared. On Sunday, June 30, 60 amateur drivers from the Tristate raced the clock on a course laid out in the parking lot of Turfway Park in Florence. Known as a Solo Competition, the event was organized by

the Cincinnati Region of the Sports Car Club of America. “You can be in a bone stock car all the way to a well-prepped car,” Gordon Maciulewicz explained. And you don’t need to bring a pit crew. “It’s a form of racing that can suit almost anybody’s budget,” Kevin Coyne added. Both Maciulewicz and Coyne have been racing for more than five years. Tom O’Gorman started when he was 15. “I drove with my dad in the passenger seat to make sure that it was legal,” he recalled. Now 21, he’s learned what it takes to go fast. “There are two kinds of drivers,” he explained. “Those that have natural ability and those that have the knowledge to get the most out of the car. The greatest drivers are the ones that mix that together.” Scott Montgomery

started just two months ago. “You’re not worried about going off the road or hitting anything,” he said. “It’s the safest form of racing you can find.”

He shared some tips. “I just try to keep the wheel steady. Try not to slide too much. Stay on the gas for as long as possible. Brake at the very last second.”

The next Solo event is July 14 at Turfway Park. “People out here are always really nice and helpful,” Kraft said. “You make good friends.”

HEBRON — Fitch Ratings has upgraded Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport’s rating on outstanding revenue bonds to A- and said its outlook for the airport remains stable. In raising the airport’s rating from BBB+, Fitch cited CVG’s “solid financial metrics,” such as lower fixed costs going forward, with a 75 percent reduction in annual debt service requirements beginning in 2014; management of the capital improvement plan with no need for new borrowings in the foreseeable future; the ability to maintain competitive cost-per-enplanement levels and “robust fund balances available on the balance sheet.” Fitch also pointed out as positives CVG’s steady origin and destination traffic base of more than 2.1 million passengers, CVG’s updated and modern infrastructure with “ample capacity for expansion,” the arrival of low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines and the continuing expansion of DHL’s cargo hub.

One-on-One builds reading skills By Amy Scalf

Nancy Costello believes 35 minutes a week can change someone’s life. As the One-to-One Reading Initiative coordinator for the Northern Kentucky Education Council, she matches struggling elementary school readers across five counties with teen and adult mentors who simply spend time reading together every week. She said the One-to-One program started in 2008 with 30 reading coaches but now it encompasses 400 volunteers in 35

schools in Boone, Campbell, Grant, Kenton and Pendleton counties. “Our volunteers are a very diverse group,” Costello said. “Our reading coaches range from community volunteers from local businesses to parents of young children to retirees.” She said high school students coach readers in some schools, to help meet the need for volunteers. Costello is actively seeking more volunteers for the program. Coaches are required to complete six hours of training, which is held at locations

throughout Northern Kentucky. Training dates, times and locations will be listed on the website,, by July 15. Background checks are required for each volunteer. Volunteers can also register online, or call Costello at 859282-9214 for more information. The whole program is built around the idea that one mentor will read one-on-one with one student once a week for the entire school year. “It’s not only working on improving reading skills, but also developing that mentor relationship, a positive relationship. The coach can encourage confi-

By Melissa Stewart FLORENCE — Gateway Community and Technical College in Florence is offering middle school students an opportunity to explore high-paying, in demand careers. More than 30 students are expected to attend the college’s first-ever Career Craze Camps. “We are hoping to give students and their parents an opportunity to learn about the high-paying, in-demand careers in the energy sector through fun, interactive activities,” Gateway Workforce Transitions Coordinator Michelle Ficke said. “Gateway offers many programs to help educate students for this growing field and this camp will highlight those.” Gateway is hosting a manufacturing camp Tuesday through Thursday, July 8-11, at the Center for Advanced Manufacturing at the college’s Boone Campus, 500 Technology Way, Florence. Students will rotate through hands-on activities to explore careers in manufacturing and learn the fundamentals of lean manufacturing. They will work in teams to solve a problem in the advanced manufacturing sector and present solutions to industry partners and parents. During the energy camp set for Tuesday through Thursday, July 15-18, at the Boone Campus, students will explore energy careers, learn the fundamentals of an energy audit, and work in teams to solve a problem related to the energy sector. These teams will present their solutions to industry partners and parents. According to Ficke, Gateway’s ultimate goal is to expand the number of camps offered throughout their Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) program. “We’re delighted to host these camps to give young students an opportunity to learn more about the great-paying career opportunities that are available in the manufacturing and energy sectors,” said Angie Taylor, Gateway vice president of Workforce Solutions and Innovations. “High-performance production jobs have been identified by local research as one of the top six fastest-growing segments in our region.” Taylor said that these camps can demonstrate to students and parents the “tremendous value” an associate’s degree can command in the workplace.

percent of the program’s students have shown continuous progress in reading, said Costello. She also hears from teachers and administrators about the program’s qualitative results. “They say students improve their confidence and start reading more in class. They’re enjoying reading more, and they have the excitement of a positive role model in their lives,” Costello said. “They have a desire to come to school and participate and see the value of reading.”

Students take trip down musical memory lane Community Recorder

The School House Symphony recently shared America’s music heritage, beginning from the arrival of the Mayflower through the 1900s, with fifth-grade students at Florence Elementary School. The Mayflower was very limited on space and did not allow room for luxury items such as musical instruments on board. But that didn’t stop

the Pilgrims’ love for music. Some of the first musical instruments in America were introduced by the Native Americans. They played rattles, drums and flutes to accompany songs they sang in their ceremonies. The ensemble of six musicians educated the students on the instruments, including percussion, brass, string and woodwind, and performed a medley of songs. The group continued their

journey in history touching on the music of the Civil War period, such as “Dixieland” and “The Yellow Rose of Texas.” They pointed out the similar likes of the kids of yesterday and the kids of today. Music was spread across America by touring bands like the famous John Philip Sousa’s Band playing “Stars and Stripes Forever” and the radio. The program ended by playing more familiar music such as ragtime and jazz.

Freedom baseball makes its mark

Team 1 game back from 1st place By Adam Turer

The Dedden Dozers celebrate with the championship trophy THANKS TO STEVE ELMORE

Knothole team bulldozes competition

Seven Boone teams in city tournament By James Weber

BOONE COUNTY — Players on the Dedden Dozers Knothole baseball team have grown up together, and for the most part, have grown up at the same pace. That pace has been behind that of most of their peers, and waiting for that always anticipated growth spurt has forced the youth baseball team to rely on fundamentals in recent years. Now that the Dozers are reaching new heights, they are reaping the benefits as they entered the Knothole city tournament July 8. “Our kids were always little,” said head coach Steve Elmore. “It seemed like every team had hit puberty before us. The only way we could stop them was to play defense. We couldn’t out-hit them or outpitch them, but we could field the ball and get groundouts. The defense came out of necessity.

Now that they’ve all hit puberty, they’re the total package.” The Dozers are one of seven Boone County teams who advanced to the finals of the Division 1 tournament, which pits Northern Kentucky’s best against those from across the river in Ohio. The tourney changed formats this year. Instead of only the regional champion in each class playing in a four-team bracket, four teams from each region make up a 16team bracket, seeded by how they finish in the region. The Dozers, in the oldest age group (Class A), are undefeated this year in regular Knothole play and the only Boone County team to win the regional championship. The Dozers scored 184 runs and allowed 19. All but one of the players attended Camp Ernst Middle School together, and the majority of the Dozers now go to Boone County High School. Six of the 13 kids live in the same subdivision. “All our kids and all our parents hang out together,” Elmore said. “The kids go to school together. There has never been a lot of drama. They have great

fun together. I’ve seen teams with a ton of talent but the kids can’t play well together and these kids play well together.” Players are Ethan Elmore, Jacob Domaschko, Tyler Iavasile, Scottie Saylor, Dominic Como, Nathan Rogers, Cody Flickinger, Conner Bruck, Andy Schlichting, Hunter Eikhoff, Tjaden Nyman, Logan Feltner and Dylan Bryant. Assistant coaches are Dave Iavasile, Jamie Domaschko and Pat Flickinger. The Dedden in the team name is for Matt Dedden, a Boone County commissioner whose excavation business supplies the second word in the name. Dedden has sponsored the Dozers from day one in Tball even though his son left the sport years ago. “Matt and I are really good friends,” Elmore said. “Our kids are the same age and our daughters are both going to NKU. We’ve been lucky and we owe him a lot. He’s spent a lot of money on us over the years, uniforms and everything.” The Florence Elks, who finSee KNOTHOLE, Page A8

Great NKY athletes see great performance By Adam Turer

When we introduced the 2013 Sportsmen and Sportswomen of the Year, we mentioned the winners received complementary tickets from the Cincinnati Reds. We did not know at the time that many deserving student-athletes from Northern Kentucky would share a historic moment together. The winners were presented with two game dates from which to choose: July 2 or Aug. 25. Those who chose the July 2 date chose wisely. They witnessed the first no-hitter in Great American Ballpark history, and the first Reds no-hitter in Cincinnati since 1988. Homer Bailey was one seventh-inning walk away from pitching a perfect game. It was a memorable night for the Sportsmen and Sportswomen in attendance. “Baseball’s not usually my cup of tea, but that was the most exciting sports game I’ve ever been to,” said St. Henry’s Libby Leedom, who won the Sportswoman honor in the Community Recorder. “It was incredible to

witness something so historic.” Leedom took her father, “a huge sports fan,” to the game. It was a memory they will cherish for a lifetime. “It felt great witnessing history with Homer Bailey pitching a no-hitter,” said Bishop Brossart’s Justin Saunders. “It was a lot of fun.”

FLORENCE — The Florence Freedom are making their mark on baseball, at the independent and professional levels. The Freedom head into their final week before the All-Star break just one game back of first place in the Frontier League’s East Division. Four Freedom players were named to the All-Star team, twice as many All-Stars as the Freedom had last season. Florence has five games to play before the All-Star break, staring with a home game on Wednesday, July10, and including a home doubleheader on Thursday, July 11. Shortstop Junior Arrojo is headed to his second straight All-Star game and will be joined by teammates Byron Wiley (designated hitter), Michael Oros (starting pitcher), and Jorge Marban (relief pitcher). The All-Star game takes place on July 17 in Washington, Pa. Oros leads the league with a 1.33 earned run average. First baseman Jeremy Hamilton, a local product from Princeton High School in Cincinnati, is second in the league with a .330 batting average. Oros, Hamilton, and Wiley are each playing their first year for the Freedom. After losing a doubleheader on Sunday, July 7, the Freedom fell to 26-19 on the season. Last year, the franchise made its first appearance in the Frontier League championship series, falling just short of a championship. “We’re in a good position, but we’ve been a little bit incon-

sistent in the first half,” said manager Fran Riordan. “I like our ballclub a lot.” As with any independent baseball league, high roster turnover is expected after each season. Arrojo, in his third year with Florence, and Marban, in his second year, provide veteran leadership. Riordan is managing the Freedom for the second-straight season, providing stability for a team that showed much potential a year ago. “Junior sets the tone for who we are as a team,” said Riordan. “He knows the way I like to see the game played and leads by example.” Unlike the veteran Arrojo, Wiley and Hamilton did not play any organized baseball last year. After not seeing live pitching last year, both are among the league leaders in several batting categories this season. “When you have a year off, it can go two ways,” said Riordan, who played five years in the Frontier League before he began coaching. “If you work hard and you have that passion and desire, you can come back hungry.” The Freedom are finding success in the Frontier League and in Major League Baseball. Steve Delabar, who pitched four games for the Freedom in 2008, is one of five players competing for the final American League All-Star fan vote. The Freedom are fully behind Delabar’s campaign. “It is something pretty special,” said Riordan. “Our whole organization is taking the final vote very seriously. Even though he only played here for a short time, it means a lot to everyone in the Florence Freedom organization.” Fans can vote for Delabar here: http://

Alexandria Recorder winner Taylor Robinson of Campbell County took her boyfriend, Campbell County’s Nate McGovney, to the game. “It was such an awesome, fun, eventful night and obviously the perfect night to attend a Reds game,” Robinson said. “I’m so thankful to have been given the opportunity to witness history and to be a part of an experience that will never be forgotten. “I couldn’t have asked for a better game to attend. We had a blast!” Newport Central Catholic’s Colin DuPont, who was the winner for the Campbell County/ Community Recorder, said “it was a good time.” Highlands High School’s Luke Turner and Jesse Daley winners in the Ft. Thomas Recorder newspaper - had the exact same reaction: “It was awesome!” For those winners who were unable to attend the July 2 game, there is still hope that they will see something special later this summer. The pressure is on the Reds starting pitcher on Aug. 25.

Guiding a common agenda for N. Ky. Vision 2015 was launched eight years ago with a charge to implement a bold, strategic plan for Northern Kentucky. The organization’s most innovative and important work is highlighted in the recently released Vision 2015 Annual Report to the Community. Vision 2015 was created as a shared public plan that represents the region’s priorities. Six focus areas emerged: Economic competitiveness; educational excellence; livable communities; urban renaissance; regional stewardship; and effective governance. The 2013 community report details achievements in each focus area, including the opening of the Licking River Greenway and Trails, the first class of UpTech graduates, and The Catalytic Development Funding Corp. of Northern Kentucky reaching its goal of raising $10 million for the development of market race housing and commercial projects in the region’s urban core. Northern Kentucky is a region recognized for its ability to work together to get things done, a concept known as

“collective impact.” Vision 2015’s annual report focuses on the five pillars of the collective impact model: Common agenda; measuring results consistently; mutually reinKara Williams forcing activities; continuous communicaCOMMUNITY tion; and backbone RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST support organization. Using these five pillars and working with community, business, government, education and other leaders from both sides of the Ohio River, Vision 2015 helps establish and guide a common agenda for Northern Kentucky. In 2012, Vision 2015 partnered with Agenda 360 – Southwest Ohio’s regional action plan for job growth, talent acquisition and economic opportunity – on a number of initiatives, including The Story Project. We introduced The Story Project to create a common narrative for the region. It is a project that

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Be responsible, compassionate for innocent pets

I have to applaud the boldness of Dave Gilbert in his address to the person that cruelly dumped a dog in the Burlington area. We all must have compassion. Perhaps some people still opt for an animal’s chance of survival in the wild, rather than a 50/50 chance of being put to sleep in a shelter. I would love to see all animal shelters become “no kill” shelters, especially in Boone County. But it is an ignorant and cruel person that causes the suffering of an animal “in the wild,” opposed to the chance of finding a home or at least being mercifully put to sleep. If you let a pet loose, don’t fool yourself. Most such pets starve, or get hit by a car, or get sick and die. I travel regularly, and on almost every long trip, I see a dog or dogs, obviously abandoned out by the highways, filthy, lost, and afraid. I wish I could save them all. I can’t. But we all can help by making sure we take full responsibility in doing the right thing for each cute little puppy or kitten we wish to bring home. Think about the life expectancy of that pet. Can you really afford that time and money? If you find yourself in a real bind later on, make sure you responsibly find another home for that innocent little creature. Educate your friends and family to likewise be responsible and compassionate.

River-Sweep Cleanup was a success

Boone County Public Works and the Solid Waste Management Department would like to say “Thank You” to all the workers who volunteered their time and services during the annual River-Sweep on Saturday, June 15. This is a one-day shoreline cleanup that extends the entire length of the Ohio River (Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kentucky). Volunteers came from public organizations, civic groups, and the general public. There were six cleanup sites throughout Boone County this year: Rabbit Hash General Store, Boone’s Landing (Union), Petersburg, Giles-Conrad Park (Hebron), Second Street Belleview (next to Kelly Elementary



School) and the Duke Energy employees at the East Bend Power Plant. A big thank you to OSANCO – Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission – for organizing and sponsoring the Ohio River-Sweep cleanup since 1989. Though the river waters were high and trash was hard to reach, we collected a lot of garbage. Without everyone’s participation this would not have been another successful event. It is a blessing to know there are many dedicated hard workers out there trying to keep our rivers clean. A special thank you sent to Emerson’s Bakery for once again donating yummy donuts and bagels, and the Rabbit Hash General Store for provided hot coffee to energize us. Also, Remke’s (Hebron) and the Boone Docks (Union), for making delicious hot lunches for all our hard workers. We had awesome companies send volunteers to help clean up the river. Thank you to Toyota, Duke (East Bend Power Station) and Cummins. Last, but certainly not least, we are sending out an appreciative thank you to those who have donated prizes for our volunteers: Local Radio Q105, B105, Rewind94.9, Shankman and Associates, Boone Auto Salvage, the Rabbit Hash Store and ORSANCO for providing the T-shirts.

Alcohol-related trash a concern

A couple days ago a couple of friends and I helped my dad with Trash For Cash. It amazed me how much trash there was on the roads we cleaned. The trash we found the most was alcohol cans and bottles. Some of the other things we found were candy wrappers, food containers and assorted soda cans. As a teenager I never realized how inconsiderate people were and how much it affected the environment to throw trash out of the car. Finding these alcoholic drinks on the roads means people are drinking and driving and that is a scary thought. The drivers in this county should realize the danger of drinking and driving and be more responsible. Other than finding all the alcohol, we were glad to help the county clean up the streets

uncovers our region’s DNA and through powerful storytelling identifies what sets us apart from competing regions. In the spirit of the collective impact model, Vision 2015 consistently measures results using clear, objective data. Vision 2015’s Regional Indicators Report expanded this year to include The 2020 Jobs Outlook and Diverse by Design: Meeting the Talent Challenge in a Global Economy. These reports compare data across 11 metropolitan regions we compete with for jobs and talent. Vision 2015 found success in linking organizations with mutually reinforcing missions, including Green Umbrella and the Northern Kentucky Education Council (NKYEC). Green Umbrella aligns the missions of its 280 members to help our region become one of the top-10 most sustainable communities in the country by 2020. Vision 2015’s annual report highlights the launch of an NKYEC toolkit that assists businesses in engaging students.

We must overhaul the role of the TSA You probably think this doesn’t apply to you. Wrong. Even if you never enter an airport your hard earned dollars are paying big salaries and big benefits to thousands of federal TSA workers Glenn - right now. Mollette How many times a COMMUNITY year do you fly on an RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST airplane? Millions of Americans have never flown on a commercial plane and millions more have only flown a couple of times. Statistics of who have and have not flown vary. Fifty million people in the United States are living in poverty and on food stamps. Are these people jet setting around the country? Another one hundred million people in the United States are still earning about $40,000 or less each year. Do you think these individuals have lots of plane cash stashed aside? They do not. Consider the millions who seldom take a vacation and prefer to drive when they do and you start seeing a smaller number of frequent air travelers. How many people fly each year in the United States? Air travel: About 42 percent of U.S. adults reported traveling by air for leisure trips taken between August 2008 and July 2009. The percentage of air travelers increases to 48 percent among U.S. adults who traveled for business purposes in the past year. (Source: travelhorizonsTM, July 2009) Air travel hassles: A June 2008 study by the U.S. Travel Association revealed a deep frustration among air travelers that caused them to avoid an estimated 41 million trips over the past 12 months at a cost of more than $26 billion to the U.S. economy. Air travelers expressed little optimism for positive change, with nearly 50 percent saying that the air travel system is not likely to improve in the near future. The effect of avoided trips cost airlines more than $9 billion in revenue; hotels nearly $6 billion and restaurants more than $3 billion. Federal, state and local governments lost more than $4 billion in tax revenue because of reduced spending by travelers. (Source: Air Travel Survey, 2008) Check for more statistics. So let’s say 165 million Americans are flying occasionally while the other 165 million are driving or taking other transportation. Why should half of the country who never fly be paying for something they never use? Plus, the payment is big.

The TSA federal budget is over $7.6 billion. This is in comparison to a $3.2 billion green energy budget. The average paycheck for the 3,900 employees at the Washington, D.C., office is $103,852 while one executive made over $5 million for nine months of work. Employees have grown from 16,500 to over 65,000 employees. Like most government entities it continues to grow and devour more of your paycheck. Airlines utilizing private contractors should provide and pay the bill for those who watch the scanners and check the bags. The people flying should pay the costs. Airplane tickets are high enough. I fly occasionally. I really don’t want to pay more. However, it’s not fair for those who never fly to bear the cost. Government involvement means more burdens for more taxes on average America that is already stressed to the max on paying taxes. Further, the TSA is going too far in harassing people at the airports of America. Elderly people, little children and women are being violated and harassed every day in our country. What seemed like a good idea after 911 has become extreme. I understand why the TSA came into existence but like the Patriot Act it needs some edits and compromises. Persons now have to practically undress and are subjected to some stranger patting them down. This is a violation of our civil liberties. I am not opposed to scanners that detect metal objects, people emptying their pockets and bag checks. However, subjecting people to pat downs and invasive x-rays have to be eliminated. Every pilot or copilot should be allowed to carry a gun. We now have cabin doors that protect the cockpit crew from an intruder. These cabin doors are vital to our flight security and cost thousands of dollars. Every plane should have a U.S. Marshal or designated plain-clothed security guard on board. I agree that every airport should have the presence of the proper authorities necessary to take someone to jail if necessary. Anyone posing a threat should be detained and escorted to jail. I am a believer in transportation security but we must overhaul the role of the Transportation Security Administration and who pays for it.

She is sharing her family’s favorite brunch recipe. “My Aunt Wilma made this for breakfast whenever we came to visit.

Healthy berry fruit gelatin snacks

My best friend and Indiana reader, Carol Spry Vanover, is always on the lookout for healthy recipes. “Check this out,” she said. This is a colorful, protein- and antioxidant-packed berry treat. Granddaughter Emerson, who just celebrated her first birthday, “helped” me pick raspberries from our patch. She broke into a big smile with all three teeth showing when I gave her a bite of the fruit snack. That’s equal to two thumbs up! Adults like these, too. Use any combination of berries you like.

Meal preparation a valuable life skill There are many skills we need to succeed in life. Managing meal preparation is an important skill that will serve us well into our golden years. Summer may be a prime time to have some fun in the kitchen while helping the children in your life learn. At a very young age children can contribute to the meal. They can count the dishware needed for the meal. Or, give them a chance to measure ingredients for a recipe. Help them identify the colors and shapes of the foods being prepared. Yes, it may take a bit longer for the task to be completed, but in the later years you’ll appreciate the time spent. As children age let them do basic meal preparation and planning. Help them know what a well-balanced meal is then let them plan the menu one night a week or month. You may have to eat some of the same foods over and over, Brenda and Jimmy Barker stand by their quilt board inspired by the tulip block in the book “5,500 Quilt Block Designs.” THANKS TO JOYCE FOLEY

Barn quilt has tulip block Community Recorder

Brenda Barker wanted to be part of the Boone County Barn Quilt Trail because she has been a quilter for years. In fact she has a long-arm quilting machine and helps quilt the output of the New Bethel Baptist Quilt Ministry. Husband Jimmy Barker has lived at the farm since the 1970s having purchased the property from Beulah Sturgeon. He said he has been selling blackberries since 1980, and there started the first farm winery in the state of Kentucky opening in 1990. Brenda found her “tulip” block in the book, “5,500 Quilt

but when your children are living on their own you’ll rest a little easier knowing they know how to fix their own meals. EncourDiane age your chilMason dren to include EXTENSION fruits and vegNOTES etables in their meal plans. Also, encourage them to try new recipes and foods. Help your children know how to use and clean the appliances in your kitchen. Take the time to teach them safety tips to avoid burns, fires, and injuries. Of course there will be spills and messes as children learn to cook. Messes can always be cleaned up. Remember to match the job to the attention span and skill level of the child. Break tasks into simple steps. Be willing to

repeat directions so the child will be successful. Keep in mind that supervision is needed when kids are learning a new skill. Do not allow young children to use sharp knives or utensils or handle hot liquids or pans. Also, be sure all hands are washed with warm soap and water often. As adults we also need to remember that praise and congratulations are always in order as the kids in our lives tackle new skills. We also have to remember that teaching our children to clean up after themselves is just as important as teaching them to cook. Gather the kids, grab a recipe and enjoy spending some time together while preparing something everyone will enjoy sampling.

Parkers celebrate Amish Broken Star The Internet is a good source for finding quilt blocks. That’s how Brenda Parker located her barn quilt block “Amish Broken Star.” However in Kentucky we call it “Carpenter’s Wheel.” Others know it as “Dutch Rose,” “Diadem Star” and “Lone Star of Paradise.” Brenda’s uncle 86year-old Floyd Barnes, of

U.S. 27 in Antioch, Ky., painted the board for them. He has painted quilt boards for others as well in more than 20 states. Floyd’s mother was the quilter in the family and Brenda still has several of these quilts that she treasures. The Parkers have lived at this location for 40 years and celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last September. Joe farms in Ukraine and

Brenda is a retired music therapist. The quilt board is located at 7565 Hopeful Church Road in Florence. Pull into the Parker driveway and walk to the barn board.

For the birds ... hummers, that is Question: What is the best recipe for making my own solution of hummingbird nectar, and how can I stop the bees from getting into my hummingbird feeder? Answer: Commercial humMike mingbird Klahr food mixes often cost HORTICULTURE CONCERNS more than homemade sugar-water solutions, and many of them also contain preservatives that might harm the birds. Here is how to make your own: Mix up a solution of about four parts water to one part sugar. This is the best ratio, because it is about the average amount of sucrose produced in typical flowers that attract hummingbirds. Do not make the solution any stronger, or it begins to attract butterflies and bees instead, since most flowers pollinated by butterflies and bees have an average nectar content of 42 percent. Boil the water and sugar for two minutes. Boiling it for this length

of time slows fermentation, which is bad for the birds. Do not microwave the solution, because microwaving causes a breakdown in the sugar molecule that can change the nutritional value. Cool the mixture and refrigerate. If you continue to have a problem with bees at the feeder, reduce the amount of sugar (or add more water) to create a 5-to-1 ratio. The birds will still use it, but bees probably will not. Do not add red dye. Some information suggests that red dye can actually harm the birds.

Most commercial feeders have sufficient red to attract the birds. Never add honey to the mixture. It will create mold and fungal disease problems. Active feeders will be emptied in a hurry. If you do not get any activity at a feeder for several days, take the feeder down, empty the solution, and replace it with fresh sugar water. Every week or so feeders, even active feeders, should be taken down and cleaned with a mild soap detergent, rinsed with bleach, and then rinsed thoroughly with water. There is great debate about when to take a hummingbird feeder down. Some people say the birds will not migrate if feed is still available, which is not true. You should leave your feeder up as long as the birds are coming to it. Migrant hummers normally show up by late July and will continue passing through until October or even later. While feeding is the best method of bringing the birds into your yard, you can also provide natural sources of nectar by planting certain flowers and shrubs, such as buckeyes, summersweet Clethra, rose mallow

Strange Brew, New Lime perform at Music@BCM By Nancy Daly

COVINGTON — It’s a “legendary” blast from the past as Northern Kentucky Music Legends Strange Brew and New Lime unite for Music@BCM this Thursday, July 11. These bands were an integral part of the early Northern Kentucky rock music scene in the 1960s and ‘70s, performing at local venues like Skinny Bobby Harper’s Club TULU. Now, they’re bringing these rock and roll glory days into the new century at Behringer-Crawford Museum. Strange Brew, consisting of Bob Eubanks, Scott Sprague, Jerry Gifford and Mike Meredith, were among 13 inductees at the June 2 inaugural induction ceremony of the Northern Kentucky Music Legends Hall of Fame at the Behringer-Crawford Museum. An exhibit honoring the inductees runs through Sept. 1.
