Election filing deadline is Aug. 14 By Stephanie Salmons

BURLINGTON — The filing deadline for the November election is quickly approaching for a number of seats around Boone County. According to voter registration supervisor Rick Riddell, the deadline to file for Walton mayor and City Council, Florence City Council, Union City Commission, Boone County Schools Board of Education divisions 1, 2 and 3,

Walton-Verona Schools Board of Education and Soil and Water Conservation District supervisors is 4 p.m Aug. 14. There are six open seats for Florence City Council. As of July 12, incumbent council members Julie Metzger Aubuchon, David Osborne, Mel Carroll, Larry Brown and Gary Winn filed to run for re-election and will face challengers Duane Froelicher, J. Kelly Huff, Curt Bessette and Eric Granacher. No one has yet filed for the

four Union City Commission seats, the six seats up for grabs on the Walton City Council or the

two Walton-Verona School Board seats, according to Riddell. Former Walton Mayor Phillip Trzop was the only contender who had filed by July 12 for the available mayor’s seat. That election is to fill an unexpired term. Current Mayor Paula Jolley recently announced she would not seek re-election. Jolley was appointed mayor last November after the sudden resignation of Wayne Carlisle, who’d served less than a year as mayor.

The current mayoral term is set to expire in 2014, so the November election will determine who will hold the seat until then. According to Riddell, one seat is available in each division 1, 2, and 3 of the Boone County Schools Board of Education. Only Stephen Kinman has filed to run in division 2. Debra Waller Messer is so far the only person who filed for one of the four Boone County Soil and Water Conservation District supervisors, said Riddell.

BURLINGTON — Funnel cakes, spinning rides, games and exhibitions – a Boone County tradition is back. The 80th annual Boone County 4-H and Utopia Fair will be Aug. 6-11 at the Boone County Fairgrounds, 5819 Idlewild Road, Burlington. Festivities kick off from 2:30-4:30 p.m. with the Fishing Frenzy, a catch-and-release event for ages 15 and younger. That event will be followed by the Open to the World tractor pull at 7 p.m. in the Motor Sport Arena.

WALTON — Those looking for a bargain may want to take a trip to Walton. The city of Walton will host its annual community yard sale at 8 a.m. Saturday, July 21. For the community yard sale, residents are encouraged to host a yard sale and don’t need to get a permit for a sale. “This is a chance for you to clean out your houses, your garages and your closets,” said Mayor Paula Jolley. City leaders are excited to bring back the community yard sale because it’s been such a success in the past. “We had a good turnout last year,” said City Council member Nicole Mize. Aside from the obvious benefits of cleaning out the house and making a little money, the community yard sale is a chance for Walton residents to interact with their neighbors and build some unity within the

different communities in the city, Mize said. In conjunction with the community yard sale, Our Lady of the Assumption Church is holding a sale in its church hall. In addition to toys, housewares and other items, buyers can fill a bag with clothes and buy them all for $3. The church will also be selling lunch, drinks, snacks and baked goods. Our Lady of the Assumption Church is located at 472 Beaver Road. Having yard sales all over the city is also a chance to bring someone who’d never normally come to the city into Walton, she said. “We’re trying to bring people into the city because there’s a lot of good things going on in the city,” Mize said. Many who haven’t been to Walton in a long time don’t know about the Walton Towne Center, the newly improved Walton Park, the renovated Gaines House and the busy schedule of activities going on in the city.

Jolley not seeking re-election as mayor By Justin B. Duke

WALTON — By the end of November, Walton will have its fourth mayor in just two years’ time. Mayor Paula Jolley announced at the July 9 City Council meeting that she will not seek re-election this November. Jolley was appointed mayor last November after the sudden resignation of Wayne Carlisle, who’d served less than a year as mayor. Before becoming mayor, Jolley served nine years on City Council. “I have spent 10 years in public service, and I have enjoyed it immensely,” Jolley said. “However, I think it is time to take a break.”

In her time serving the city, Walton has undergone major changes. “We’re proud of Jolley Kroger, we’re proud of the Gaines House and what’s happened at the Senior Citizens Center,” Jolley said. Her proudest achievement has been seeing the citizens of Walton taking an interest in what’s happening in their city, Jolley said. “I really believed people should be involved,” she said. Stepping away from City Hall will give others an opportunity to be involved in Walton, Jolley



said. “I think our founding fathers expected us to take a break once in a while,” she said. Jolley plans to remain in Walton and be involved with some of her favorite city events like the Easter egg hunt and Christmas on Main. “Mrs. Claus will definitely be back,” she said. Though she won’t say what she’ll be doing when she returns to public service, Jolley said she’ll likely be back eventually. “I will not disappear,” Jolley said. The current mayoral term is set to expire in 2014, so the November election will determine who will hold the seat until then. So far, only former mayor Phillip Trzop has filed to run for the seat. Along with electing a new mayor, Walton residents will also vote on all six City Council seats. The filing deadline for all seats is Aug. 14. Visit for more community news

Fair Continued from Page A1

While this is the 80th year for the fair, John Walton, president of the fair board, said the fair has been held at its current location for 70 of those. Compared to others, “we’re a young fair,” but the Boone County fair has been “well-recognized” as one of the better fairs in the state, Walton said. He attributed the longevity of the fair to several factors. “One, it’s got a good location,” he said. “It’s a well-kept ground of which the county can be real proud.” Board member Sandra Cupps said the fair is “family-friendly and affordable,” a few reasons the fair continues to thrive. “I think it’s become a staple,” she said. It’s something people look for, Cupps said. And for people who are new to the area, the fair “gives them a touch of agriculture without having to raise the cow at their place.” Visitors may note a few changes to the lineup this year. According to Cupps, a new truck drag race will be held that Wednesday, and a new R.C. (remote control) puller competition will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11. Horse shows will take place every night during the fair. Board member Larry Burcham said Western shows will be Monday and Tuesday during the fair while English classes will show Wednesday through Saturday. Historically, Burcham said Tennessee Walking horses showed Wednesdays, but that category has been removed this year due to declining participation. Fair admission is $8 and covers rides, grandstand entertainment and other events. Rides will be open from 6 p.m. to close Aug. 6-10 and from 1 p.m. to close Saturday, Aug. 11.

station. Kayser said this year, they’d like to get that number up to $10,000. It’s important, she said, to support WNKU because WNKU supports local. “They’ve been very beneficial for a lot of local bands ... They’ve given bands the wherewithal to make it out of Cincinnati to play regionally and even nationally,” said Kayser. The festival also puts Boone County in a focal point “we’re not usually seen in,” she said. “It brings Boone County to light as a community that not only loves music, but supports local music and up-and-coming artists from all over America,”

RABBIT HASH — A music festival showcasing local talent and bands from across the country is returning to Rabbit Hash this summer. The third annual BrownGrass Festival will take place from noon to 11 p.m. Saturday, July 21, in the river community. According to Bobbi Kayser, one of the event’s organizers and owner of the community’s mayor – the border collie Lucy Lou– there will be food, drinks, vendors and a raffle. Proceeds from the event will benefit WNKU. While this is the third year for the event, it’s only the second year the show has been held in Rabbit Hash. The idea for the event came, Kayser said, after her fiance David Rhodes Brown performed several years ago at a festival in St. Louis where proceeds benefited a local, nonprofit college radio station there. The benefit was first held at the Southgate House along with Brown’s CD release, she said. That one went so well, it was decided to continue the festival and move it to a bigger venue – so they “decided to take it to our hometown of Rabbit Hash,” Kayser said. Last year, close to 1,000 people attended and organizers were able to donate about $5,800 to the radio

Heritage and Chalk Fest coming up By Stephanie Salmons


Two Boone County groups are partnering to bring both the arts and history to Burlington. The Boone County Historical Society and the Historic Burlington Business Association are partnering for the first time to offer the Boone County Heritage and Chalk Fest. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, July 21, with a rain date of July 28, behind the Boone County Administration Building and near the Old Clerk’s Office in Burlington. The business association first held a chalk festival in 2009, said HBBA treasurer Linda Whittenburg. The festival was canceled last year. Historical society board member Virginia Lainhart said the group’s heritage day has been held for a few years now. The thought was “let’s just combine the two and possibly get more interest to have more things for the visitors to do,” Whittenburg said. According to Whittenburg, 10 local artists, who will receive a stipend, will be doing chalk art on the pavement, “focusing on things concerning Boone County history.” It’s a change from previous years, however, in that it’s no longer a competition. Organizers will, however, do a viewer’s choice award, said Whittenburg. “The area has so much —

to offer and sometimes (it’s) difficult to encourage people to shop locally and to patronize the local businesses,” she said. “(The event is) a great way to encourage people to come out and at least see what’s available out there.” In addition to chalk artists, the event will include booths from local artists, the Boone County Visual Arts Association and the Boone County Public Library; a free-draw area; music and other activities. Lainhart said the historical society will have items set up outside like tools early farmers used while inside the Old Clerk’s Office, items will showcase how farmers’ wives kept house and items they used. According to a release from the historical society, antique vehicles will also be displayed.

Burlington Pharmacy Health Care was established in 1976 to provide integrated health care and wellness services. The staff can dispense prescriptions, counsel patients, deliver health care products and provide

health care. “Thirty years ago, health care costs represented 9 percent of the United States GDP. Today, that number is over 17 percent,” Mueller said. “In comparison, health care costs in the rest of the world total 6 percent, with Europe averaging 9 to 10 percent.”

idea of the true cost of their prescription drugs, since they are only responsible for a small copayment, with the majority of the cost borne through health insurance. This has encouraged consumers to visit a doctor or emergency room for every health concern instead of first practicing self treatment. How can consumers take control of their own health care? Mueller advises taking better care of ourselves through diet and exercise, and reducing our reliance on medical intervention. He suggests doing your own medical research online before visiting a doctor for minor medical issues. In conclusion, Mueller shared his goal for the Burlington Pharmacy, “We strive to help people be healthier any way we can.” Pam Goetting of Florence Rotary Club contributed this article.

Promotions abound in Boone Schools

Many moved up from within BCS By Justin B. Duke

It’s been a summer of change for Boone County Schools. This month, several leaders within the district started positions gained through promotions. Those in new positions include: » Karen Cheser: Deputy Superintendent/Chief Academic

Officer » Alissa Ayres: Assistant Superintendent for Learning Support Services » Ben Lusk: Director of Assessment Support » Linda Black: Principal, Yealey Elementary » Todd Novak: Principal, Gray Middle School “We’re very proud of the fact that a lot of the leadership promotions are from within,” said Superintendent Randy Poe. For years, Boone County Schools has worked to make sure every student who gradu-

ates from the district is ready for college, career and life. Being able to put the same people who’ve been working toward that goal into positions of greater responsibility means they’ll be more able to “hit the ground running,” Poe said. Hiring from within also means the positions are filled by people who have proven they have the flexibility to keep up with the district as it does whatever it takes to get students prepared for after graduation, he said. “We’re always in a continu-

ous progress mode,” Poe said. The newly hired principals are former assistant principals who are replacing retiring principals. This provides two opportunities for those looking to advance into an assistant principal role, he said. Most of the openings in the district office were catalyzed by the retirement of Chief Academic Officer Pat Murray, who retired June 30. As one person was hired to fill a position, it left an opening that was filled by someone down

the line. “It created somewhat of a domino effect,” Poe said. Having so many people starting new positions on the same day also meant a lot of office packing, moving and unpacking all in one day. Thankfully, everyone was prepared and within about an hour, everyone was in their new offices and ready to start in their new positions, Poe said. “It didn’t create too much havoc,” he said.

Florence Elementary gets students career-focused Community Recorder Florence Elementary provided a college and career readiness program during summer school in June that focused on furthering academic goals. The four-week program allowed the students to visit the college campus of Northern Kentucky University and Florence Government Center and explore careers based on their hobbies, interests and skills. The program introduced exploratory activities relating to science, math, reading, technology and physical fitness. All areas work together to prepare the students to become wellrounded individuals. Some of the students read a book on their interested career

path, finding facts about the profession. The students designed toys, cereal boxes and Florence Elementary T-shirts. The fingerprinting activity relates to the popular career of working with NCIS and becoming a police officer. At the Government Center the highlight of the trip was witnessing one of the teachers being handcuffed and students viewed the daily tasks involved in law enforcement. The primary groups built architectural structures with blocks and marshmallows and toothpicks, along with building paper planes related to Aero Space Engineer Designers. To conclude this program many of the students created a

personalized poster. The poster showed their chosen profession and several brought props for the graduation ceremony presented to the parents. The most unique career was becoming a cleft palate doctor. The most important career is being the “mom” and “dad,” raising children to be respected parents and citizens in the community. The parents and students participated in a pizza party which followed the ceremony. The students chose their career path based on the roles models in their lives and their experiences. Encourage your children to become involved in their hobbies and interests to help develop a rewarding profession.

COLLEGE CORNER Cawley, Molen receive scholarship

Shaun Cawley and Austin Molen, both of Florence, received the Patterson Scholarship, awarded to students in Eastern Kentucky University’s Department of Management and Marketing. Cawley is a freshman management major. Molen is a freshman marketing major. Each student will be awarded $1,200 per semester for two semesters. Requirements for the scholarship are a minimum 24 ACT score and a 3.0 cumulative GPA.

Humphrey graduates from Denison Univ.

Kimberly Anne Humphrey of Union graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor of arts degree from Denison University. Humphrey graduated with a double major in religion and English literature. A consistent dean’s list student, Humphrey was awarded an Alumni Award Scholarship and the Vinton R. Shepard Memorial Scholarship in English. Humphrey was the senior fellow for the religion department and was a summer research scholar, her project was titled “Gustavo Gutierrez’s Liberation Theology: Traditional Catholicism from the Perspective of the Afflicted Poor.”

FLORENCE — A familiar face to sick and injured children is calling it quits. Terri Sothard recently retired from Collins Elementary where she spent 17 years. Sothard was a part of the staff support in the school’s health clinic. Working in the clinic gave Sothard the opportunity to help children at a time when they are the most vulnerable, she said. “It really touches your heart when you have a little kindergartner who is sick,” Sothard said. A key to the job was getting to know the children to understand best how to help them, she said. “Sometimes just a kind word or giving them a few minutes to calm down was all that was needed,” Sothard said. Sothard loved working in an elementary school because she

got to see children change so much from kindergarten to fifth grade. “It was satisfying because you got to see them mature,” Sothard said. Although Sothard loved her job, it was never one she planned to hold. Her son was in the multiple handicap program at Collins in the early 1990s. She started volunteering in the school library so she could help her son communicate with others. After spending so much time in the school, Sothard was finally asked “You’re here all the time; how about a job?” She started as part time, but eventually she went to full time. So even though it was never planned, the job ended up being one of Sothard’s great joys. “That’s the one thing about working in a school,” Sothard said. “You have a sense of accomplishment.” Visit for more community news

Madcap Puppets visit Florence Elementary Community Recorder Madcap Puppets entertained and educated the summer school students at Florence Elementary in June with the theater production “When You Wish Upon a Fish.” The performance created a plot of three different fishy tales of the fisherman and his wife. In all three tales the fisherman’s wife was granted wishes to make changes to her life. The theme song carried the

life message for all including, “‘When you wish upon a fish be careful what you say, for if you wish upon a fish there might be a price to pay.” In the first two versions, the fisherman’s wife paid the price for being greedy and foolish. In the last version, a teacher was recruited to play the part of the fisherman’s wife and became a mermaid due to her choice. The students loved the audience participation and the participants did a great job acting.

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS — Although they do not have full varsity status, the bowling program at Northern Kentucky University has been climbing the national rankings. The Norse are looking to keep building their program through new recruits, and will try to add to their roster later this summer. NKU will have three open tryouts at La Ru Lanes in Highland Heights. Tryouts will be 7 p.m. Friday, July 27; 8 p.m. Monday, July 30, and 8 p.m. Monday, Aug. 6. Tryouts will cost $5 and entrants will bowl three games on the tougher “sport” lane condition. Roster decisions will be announced Aug. 8. The bowling program has club status at NKU. Team members must be current NKU students in good academic standings, defined as having at least 2.0 GPA and carrying either 12 credit hours for fall semester (undergraduate) or six credit hours (graduate). NKU bowling administrator and coach Chris Robisch said NKU is looking to have 40 competitors, 24 men and 16 women, to form five eightperson teams to compete. The team will travel throughout the Midwest for weekend tournaments from Sept. 29 through Feb. 17, going as far away as Milwaukee. The Norse will attempt to qualify for national championships taking place in March. As a club team, NKU is ineligible for the NCAA championships that air annually on ESPN, but can contend in the U.S. Bowling Congress events and other collegiate tournaments. “We go up against the best in the country, including schools like Wichita State, where many of the pros have come from,” Robisch said. “They have all the money and we do well against them.” Boone County head coach Bruce Hightchew is also NKU head coach, with Robisch and Simon Kenton coach David Hampton on the staff. Local professional bowlers Dennis Baker and Riga Kalfas are consultants for the team. The bowling program has met with NKU athletic director Scott Eaton about becoming a full varsity sport but Robisch said it would not happen for the next few years as NKU is transitioning to NCAA Division I status. Robisch said several of Greater Cincinnati’s top high school bowlers from last year have already joined the program, including Boone County standouts Brad Hightchew and Cory Black. Hightchew finished third in the Kentucky state high school tournament and Black was regional champion. Robisch said NKU is an attractive outlet for Greater Cincinnati’s top talent. “The biggest plus we have is that Northern is such a good value for the kids’ money,” Robisch said. “A lot of the kids don’t want to leave home, but they want to bowl.” Contact club president Nick Fecher at or Robisch at

edged future NKU teammate Skinner, who is a 2011 graduate of Villa Madonna Academy. Skinner, a Burlington, Ky. native, also had her father at caddy (Richard). “I’m disappointed, but I know we’ll have a great year together coming up,” Skinner said. Players shot one 18-hole round for score and were seeded into flights, with the top eight playing in the championship flight, which was three rounds of match play. In their final match, Smith and Skinner traded momentum regularly. After the players halved the first three holes, they only halved three holes the rest of the way, and neither led the match by more than one hole. And more often than not, a routine two-putt par was enough to claim a holes. “I don’t think either of us played to the best of our ability,” Smith said. “We started out with a couple of bogies. My driver wasn’t good at all, but I putted and chipped well.” After seizing the lead with an eight-foot par putt on the 15th hole, Smith gave it right back by driving into the trees on 16 while Skinner found the fairway. On 17, Skinner wasn’t able to save par from off the green, and Smith took a one-hole lead into the final hole but missed a chance to win on 18 after three-putting from 20 feet. They went back to hole 1, where Skinner’s approach found the rough just off the green, and Smith’s approach was on the green 15 feet away. Skinner chipped to 10 feet from the hole, and when Smith’s birdie putt stopped within 18 inches of the cup, Skinner was forced to sink her putt to have a chance. She sent the putt three feet past and conceded the match. “It kept going back and forth,” Skinner said. “We wanted to get the momentum and we kept losing. We didn’t play our best, but at the same time, it was great golf. I knew it would come down to putting.” Smith and Skinner will be playing together a lot in the coming years. “I wasn’t stressed out because if Katie won I would be happy for her,” Smith said. “It will be great to be teammates. We’ve been playing each other since seventh grade.” Smith had little time to celebrate, heading to Maysville for a major tournament the next day, then she had a busy summer ahead of her on the 7-Up Junior Tour. She said her personal coach and future NKU head coach Daryl Landrum got her where she is in her golf game. Skinner, too old to play on the Junior Tour, was planning to enter the Kentucky Open before NKU practice begins in late August. Notre Dame Academy had a strong presence in the tourney. Three of the eight championship flight participants were from NDA, including Kristin Lottman, Jill Edgington and Angela Pugliano. Lottman, a two-time Amateur champion, lost in the quarterfinals to 1974 VMA graduate Sharon Voelker, who didn’t take up golf until age 40. Voelker is the reigning Northern Kentucky Senior Amateur champion. Ryle graduate Megan Schaefer also lost in the quarterfinals. Skinner almost completed a VMA sweep of the top two flights. Jenna McGuire of Crescent Springs, an incoming freshman at VMA, won the Bluegrass Flight over Notre Dame Academy golfer Sydney Swingos. Both players are regulars on the Junior Tour In the Dixie Flight, Diane Davis-Cain, representing the Kenton County course in Independence, beat Nancy Creevy of Lakeside Park, representing Summit Hills Country Club. Two members of Eagle Creek in Grant County contested the Derby Flight final, with Ann Stanchina beating Marion Caseldine on the second hole of sudden death.

9/11 Memorial needs your support Sept. 11, 2001, a day that none of us will ever forget. The day that Americans were changed, forever. We must never forget the tragedy of that day and the days and years that have followed. Innocent people died that day, families lost loved ones, firefighters, police officers and first responders gave their lives, trying to save complete strangers. Service above self. The lives of their families are forever changed as well. Within that huge pile of ash, charred remnants of steel remained. Realizing this is all that remained of the Twin Towers; the steel was recovered and dedicated for the purpose of memorialization. The Crescent-Villa Fire Department worked tirelessly to acquire one of only 1,000 pieces of World Trade Center steel. While more than 10,000 requests were received, our local fire department was truly blessed to acquire a piece which is a 4-by-2 foot I-beam, a structural support for those iconic buildings. For now, this I-beam is on display at the firehouse and travels to schools and public forums to remind us of 9/11. Soon, this treasured steel will be included with the Northern Kentucky 9/11 Memorial

which will be located at the Crescent Springs Community Park, next to the Kenton County Veterans Memorial which is at the corner of Buttermilk Pike and Collins Road. This memorial will be made of granite and will record the timeline of events that horrible day. The base will be in the shape of the Pentagon and will include sculptures and etchings. The history of events will be forever engraved in stone. Additionally, there will be two black granite towers, 12 feet tall surrounded by granite rubble, reflecting how our world crumbled that day. Centered therein, this steel beam will rise up out of the rubble reflecting that our love for this country cannot be destroyed. Additionally, there will be engraved benches, trees and beau-

Ky. needs more adequate tax revenues I agree with Col Owens. He’s right to say that Kentucky’s tax system needs to be modernized. We definitely need to distribute the total tax burden more fairly. But we also need to be sure our taxes are adequate. Today, after years of devastating spending cuts, we need even more revenue to address the evolving needs of the 21st century. This problem of inadequate revenue has to be addressed if we are to maintain, much less grow, our standard of living. Our current tax system does not provide adequate funds for essential services such as education, economic development, health care, transportation, infrastructure and energy. These are critical for our continued economic growth and quality of life. The state general fund has remained relatively flat since 2008, while needs in all of these

areas have grown. Infrastructure costs alone are daunting, but so are exploding costs for education, for Evelyn Tackett health care, pensions, fuel COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST costs and safeCOLUMNIST ty net supports for those who are unemployed or underemployed. Our revenue system is dependent primarily on the income and sales taxes. Our state income tax was established in 1936 and since 1950 has been essentially a flat tax of about 6 percent on almost all income. It does not have the flexibility to capture income increases resulting from economic growth and inflation since 1950. This inflexibility produces what

economists call a “structural deficit.” Having a structural deficit means our shortfalls are not due to economic downturns but rather to internal structural or design problems. An income tax will never meet our needs. The sales tax also contributes to the problem of inadequate revenue, but in a different way. The base for Kentucky sales tax is comprised almost exclusively of goods, which were the basis of most economic transactions when the tax was established. As our economy has shifted away from manufacturing and the production of goods, toward services; services have not generally been added to the sales tax base. This means a growing volume of economic transactions escape taxation altogether. I think several things need to be done.

1. The income tax needs to be made more progressive, with a new higher bracket for high income earners. This would increase fairness and flexibility, and increase revenue. 2. Itemized deductions which primarily help high-income taxpayers could be capped, eliminated, or phased out at higher income levels. 3. The sales tax should be expanded to include additional services, to reflect shifts in the economy. I’m glad Governor Beshear has initiated a commission to review our tax system and to make recommendations. I hope Kentuckians will follow its progress, engage in the discussions and support proposals that improve our quality of life. Evelyn K. Tackett, of Park Hills, is director of the North Central Area Health Education Center.


Recently, my Scout troop did a Trash for Cash litter cleanup along Graves Road. It was disheartening to see how much litter there was along this short stretch of roadway. As a Scout, we are taught the principles of Leave No Trace, which mean we leave an area better than we found it if possible. Even though we were cleaning up a roadside, and not a nature trail, it was depressing to see how much trash people throw out of their cars. People seem to think this practice is OK; it is not. It leaves an area looking like someone’s personal refuse bin. What made this even more disappointing was the fact that a good portion of what we found was cigarette butts, chip bags and alcohol containers, evidence of people drinking and driving.

The Boone County Pee Wee

Football Team, the Knights, picked up trash on two miles of Boone County roads on June 3. We had a small group this year of six kids and six parents. They set out at 9 a.m. Saturday morning. Our route was all of Rosetta in Florence and the entrance leading to Lincoln Woods. I offered to cancel it this year since we had very few volunteers show this year but these kids and parents said no and picked up trash anyway. I would like to thank them personally: Colby McVay , Austin Neace, Carter and Kaiden Engle, Trey and Mike Coleman, and their parents. We do this program every year, I think this program is not only great for Boone County but for these kids and parents. Karianne White Boone County Pee Wee Football League Florence

New laws are on the books As the summer heat wave continued to brown our lawns and beacons both young and old to pools or indoor activities, the newest of Kentucky laws officially and quietly went into effect July 12. While most of the public’s attention was focused on the passage of the biannual budget for the commonwealth, and the redistricting fiasco that ended up in the hands of the Kentucky Supreme Court, many proposed pieces of legislation were debated, wrangled, defeated and some bills died slow deaths, some dead on arrival and some were resurrected at the last hours during the 2012 legislative session. The newest laws cover a wide range of issues including greater Addia oversight on Wuchner the sale of COMMUNITY copper to comRECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST bat the theft of valuable metals, allowing Kentuckians to carry concealed weapons on their property or in their business without a permit, and eliminating an outdated pension program for Confederate veterans. Among the new laws are: Senate Bill 3: This one was very controversial, starting out as Senate Bill 50 which would have required all cold medicines containing pseudoephedrine to be prescription and had little support from Northern Kentucky legislative members. Senate Bill 50 died. While many of us still felt some elements of Senate Bill 3 – the new version of the pseudoephedrine bill – to still be problematic, in the end Senate Bill 3 had the votes for passage. The law seeks to stop the manufacture of methamphetamine by reducing the amount of pseudoephedrine and ephedrine, which are key ingredients in meth that can be purchased to 7.2 grams per month. It also establishes a mandatory electronic monitoring system to track the sale of cold and allergy medicines containing ephedrine and pseudoephedrine. House Bill 390: This bill combats the growing theft of metals like copper by eliminating cash payments for the sale of valuable metals to recycling centers. Instead it will require someone selling copper or other metals to show proof of ownership, with payment to be made by check mailed to the individual’s home or business address. House Bill 484: This bill amends Kentucky’s concealed carry law to allow individuals to carry a concealed weapon without a permit on their land or in their business. Think of this as common-sense legislation that corrects the overreach of the current law’s effect on individual’s private property rights. Senate Bill 58: This bill gives law enforcement officers the ability to make misdemeanor assault arrests with probable cause if the incident happens in a hospital’s emergency room. Addia Wuchner, a Republican, is running for re-election for the 66th District in the Kentucky House of Representatives.

art OF homemaking 21st Century Club likes gardening, cooking and crafting

By Stephanie Salmons

The 21st Century Club unofficially began about nine years ago, after three local mothers had graduated from their MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group. After one’s kids are in kindergarten, “you don’t qualify to be in MOPS anymore, so we wanted a homemakers’ group for moms who were younger yet (whose kids were) too old for MOPS,” said member Elizabeth Peck of Union. So they started a group where moms got together and did different things, like gardening, cooking and crafting and began to meet once a month. According to member Christina Ellzey of Florence, they wanted a place where they could bring their kids “and didn’t have to worry about upsetting people who didn’t have kids (that age).” The group is a Boone County Extension Homemakers’ club. Sitting around the table at the Cooperative Extension office in Burlington, it’s easy to see the camaraderie between the group members that are present, including Peck, Ellzey, president Crystal Roth and vice president Anastasia Perez, both of Burlington. According to Roth, the club is going back to its roots. “We’re finding out the people we do have in our group want it more like us getting together and doing activities and learning things to do with the house,” she said. Katie Smallwood, family and consumer sciences extension agent, calls the group “a specialinterest homemaker club.” “We all have different interests and stuff to offer the group,” Peck said. “We ... pull from each other what we have to offer.” “That’s what I think is good about this group,” Smallwood said. “You all do share your time and talents with each other and the community.” The group is made up of active mothers, and according to Roth, a majority of the 12 or 13 people who are in the club home-school,

“so the kids are with them all the time.” This group is different from the typical homemakers group because members have young children. In addition to “more flexible and streamlined” meetings, this year, a goal is to have a hands-on activity every month. “You get to learn something new without having to make time for it,” Ellzey said. “It’s built-in, guilt-free education,” said Smallwood. According to Peck, a lot of the “arts of homemaking are lost,” and the group is trying to bring them back. “I like the aspect that I have a group of people to come to that we all share the same goals and desires,” Ellzey said. The club even helps support military families during the holidays, a project Roth said the group is passionate about. Members set up a table at the craft fair the Homemakers group hosts in the fall, she said. Everyone makes craft items to sell and 100 percent of the proceeds go toward their efforts. Smallwood said a group like this “makes our community better.” With changing economic times, Ellzey said this kind of group is important for younger people “because we are a transient society now. We don’t have our moms or our grandmothers around necessarily or they’ve already passed away. So the skills that we’re using to build our families inexpensively or creatively – there’s nobody we can get them from except each other. So we’re learning and then teaching each other so we can better our households and do it sometimes for a lot less money or more creatively.” Those interested in joining the 21st Century Club can call Roth at 859-586-0137, Smallwood at 859586-6101 or pick up a flier at the Boone County Cooperative Extension Office, 6028 Camp Ernst Road, Burlington. The club meets from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. the first Friday of every month at the extension office. Children are welcome.

Middle-age dilemma: caring for kids, parents and self Many middle-aged adults are finding themselves caring and supporting two generations – their children and their aging parents. While caregiving can be very rewarding, it often can bring additional emotional, physical and financial stresses for caregivers as they try to balance a career, parenting and elder care. According to the Family Caregiver Alliance, 520,000 Kentucky informal caregivers provide 570 million hours of care each year. This support is most often geared toward sen-


iors by middleaged daughters, who are balancing a full-time job on top of their other daily responsibilities. Consider these tips for handling the physical and emotional stresses related to

caregiving: Recognize how you handle stress and what is stressing you. Put your stressors into perspective and make time for what is

really important. Remember you also need to take care of yourself. Communicate with all siblings and try to plan what each can realistically do to support your aging parents. Even those who live a distance away can be of some assistance if only a regular phone call. Look into local resources for help with meals and activities. Take physical and emotional breaks from caregiving, such as going for a walk or reading a book. Ask for help, including professional support.

Remember that the example you set by handling your stress is a model for the rest of your family. Reducing financial stress requires honesty between all parties involved in the caregiving process. You should analyze your financial situation and be honest with your parents about how much financial support you can provide to them now and in the future. Your parents need to be honest with you about their monthly expenses. Reviewing your parents’ expenses may help you find ways where they can cut

costs, such as buying generic products, seeking government assistance or moving in together to share monthly expenses. You should be honest with your children about the effects of caring for your aging parents and make sure they know the family needs come first. You may also want to seek support and advice from geriatric care managers, elder care lawyers and financial planners.

Good dishes come from heirloom recipes tom of the pan. Food is like that, too. Seems like the recipes we enjoy most are those with a history, like the ones I’m sharing today.

Teresa Mauk of Union, administrator of the nursing program at Gateway Community and Technical College, is one of only 12 nurses nationwide selected as subject matter experts to develop national nursing licensing exams. Mauk was approved for the post by the Kentucky Board of Nursing and selected as an item writer by the National Council of State Boards

She was nominated based on clinical specialty and nursing expertise, according to Ross Santell, Gateway associate provost for nursing and allied health. All nurses in the United States must take the NCLEX test.

Chicken (boneless skinless, 6 oz.) is broiled and blackened and cut in strips. Shrimp (5 oz.) is broiled in a little butter and salt and pepper and small amount of white wine. All is tossed several times so flavors are mixed.

Impossible pumpkin pie

Betty Crocker’s “impossible” pies never lose their appeal, since they’re easy and tasty with no pie crust to roll I’ve had a couple requests for these. One

was for the impossible quiche pie. I don’t have that recipe but do have the other, for a pumpkin pie. 1 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix) ½ cup original Bisquick mix ½ cup sugar 1 cup evaporated milk 1 tablespoon butter, softened 1½ to 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 large eggs

Don’t rely on verbal warranties If you buy a used car, is the dealer responsible if something goes wrong with it after just a few days? A surprising number of people believe the dealer is responsible even if the car was sold “As Is,” meaning without a Howard warranty. Ain Now some HEY HOWARD! judges are ruling against the dealers as well. Cason Hensley, of Walton, bought a 2001 Honda Odyssey from a used car dealer in Cleves. “We test drove the vehicle. It sounded OK and we bought it. The very next day my fiancée goes to take it to work and the van was just spinning through its gears. She tells me, ‘I can’t drive it,’” Hensley

said. Hensley says he realized the van was purchased “As Is,” but says, “When they sell you a car there they say you have a 30-day unwritten warranty. It says ‘As Is’ on the paperwork but then they tell you, ‘Hey, if anything is wrong with it we stand behind our autos. We’ll give you 30-days.’” Hensley had paid Mike Weinle at Michael J’s Auto Sales $2,800 for the vehicle and took it back to him. Hensley says Weinle checked over the van. “He says, ‘Oh, it was just low on transmission fluid.’” But Hensley says while driving the van back to Walton he noticed the same problem occurred. This time, Hensley says, although he contacted the dealer again, nothing more was done. So he returned the van to dealership, then filed suit in small claims

court seeking his money back. Weinle defended his position to the magistrate by pointing to the receipt showing the van was sold “As Is” without a warranty. But the magistrate ruled in favor of Hensley and ordered the money returned to him. Why did the judge rule for Hensley? “Well, the judge flat out told Weinle, ‘You took the car back to repair it, didn’t you? Did you touch that automobile? Yes? Well, then you took it back to fix it, so there was an issue then,’” Hensley said. Weinle appealed, but a judge upheld the magistrate’s ruling and now he’s appealed again. “I’m just trying to be a nice guy,” Weinle said. However, he says this is not the first time magistrates have ruled against him in similar situations where he was just trying help out. The magis-

trates are ruling that whenever Weinle tries to fix the vehicle it negates his “As Is” warranty. I’ve heard of several used car dealers offering these verbal warranties, but believe they may tend to give consumers a false sense of security. So despite the court rulings, don’t rely on any warranty that is not in writing. Instead, get your own ASE certified mechanic to check out a vehicle before you buy it. It may cost you about $100 for the inspection, but its well worth it to avoid buying a vehicle that will cost you a lot more than that if there are problems.

How to stop potato bugs Question: Potato bugs are eating the leaves of my potato plants, and even the tomatoes and peppers. I have used Sevin, but I think the bugs actually like the taste of it. Answer: The common black and yellow-striped “potato bug” is the most serious insect pest of potatoes. Both the striped beetle and the black-spotted, red larva feed on potato leaves. In addition to potato, Colorado potato beetle can be a serious pest of tomato, eggplant and pepper. The Colorado potato beetle is notorious for its ability to rapidly develop resistance to insecticides that are used repeatedly for control. This has been a serious problem on the East Coast for some time, and is becoming more of a problem in Kentucky. With a limited number of insecticides available, some homeowners feel they have exhausted their control options when it becomes resistant to one or more insecticides, such as Sevin. Colorado potato beetles overwinter in the soil as adults. They become active in the spring as temperatures rise and begin to feed on weeds and early planted potatoes. Female beetles lay orange-yellow eggs in batches of about two dozen on the underside of the leaves. Each female can lay 500 or more eggs over a four to five week period.

Eggs hatch in four to nine days and the larvae begin to feed on Mike potato Klahr foliage. HORTICULTURE The larvae CONCERNS are humpbacked with two rows of black spots on each side. They usually feed in groups and damage can be severe, reducing yield and even killing plants. The larval stage lasts two to three weeks. Full grown larvae burrow in the ground to pupate. In five to 10 days, the adult beetle emerges. This insect can go from egg to adult in as little as 21 days. The newly emerged adult female feeds for a few days before egg-laying begins. There are two to three generations each

year. If foliar sprays are used, an effort should be made to treat just after most eggs have hatched but before serious plant damage occurs. It is important to rotate pesticides to prevent resistance from building up within the beetle population. For example, use Imidan one week, Sevin the next, then New Spectracide, then Methoxychlor. Azatin, an insect growth regulator, may also be used. Mike Klahr is the Boone County extension agent for horticulture.
