Son’s grief turns to helping others

Foundation focuses on suicide prevention By Stephanie Salmons

FLORENCE — A Florence man has turned a family tragedy into an opportunity to help others facing similar struggles. Sheila Anne Riegler was always positive and upbeat, according to her son Dylan Riegler, 27, of Florence. She was the last person Riegler said he would

ever expect to commit suicide. “For me, it was completely unexpected,” he said of his mother’s 2009 suicide. Riegler founded SEAS (Stay

Educated About Suicide) the Day, an organization formed in April 2012, in memory of Sheila Anne. It was his mother’s love of the beach that inspired the group’s theme. The organization, dedicated to spreading awareness, prevention and education about suicide, aims to raise awareness of suicide prevention and offer permanent solutions by promoting a positive outlook on life for those affected directly and indirectly by suicide through education and outreach.

BURLINGTON — The Boone County Public Library has received a $2,500 Walmart Local Giving Hunger Relief and Healthy Eating grant from the Walmart Foundation and facility No. 1510. Funds will be used to provide weekly meals for adults attending the library’s Preventing Summer Reading Loss-Fueling the Mind program with their children. Since 2011, the Boone County Public Library has successfully partnered with Boone County Public Schools and the Summer Food Service Program to offer weekly meals to at-risk children, from birth to 18 years, in the city of Florence. Last summer in June and July, youth had access to lunch four days a week at the library’s Florence branch and were provided with dinner one evening a week at a remote location through the Library’s Community Center on Wheels outreach vehicle. Additionally, children participating in the meal service received extended summer reading programming. A second site has been added this summer. Money from the Walmart grant makes it possible for meals to also be provided to adults who attend the program with their children. “It’s hard to nurture and support your own child when you’re not properly fed yourself,” said Lisa Sensale Yazdian, the library’s youth services team leader for outreach. The library, she said, is “ecstatic” about receiving the grant “because we do have a lot of adults who are hungry. They put their children’s needs ahead of their own.” Yazdian said she’s “definitely at ease” now they can also provide meals for adults. “I’m just happy we’re able to give the adults something they need.” Want to continue the conversation?

Global mission changes lives

College students learn leadership By Melissa Stewart

When God gives a mission, to accomplish it “He’ll give you the power,” according to Emily Cain, 22, of Walton. According to Meredith Eckstein, 20, of Union, “He’ll prepare the way.” And, according to Cory Spaulding, 22, of Florence, He’ll provide “hope.” This summer these three Northern Kentucky residents were part of a group of 38 Kentucky college students who participated in the Kentucky Baptist Convention’s 1:8 Leadership Experience. Created around Acts 1:8, which instructs Christians to spread the gospel to “the ends of the earth,” the program offers college

students short-term mission trips throughout the state and overseas.

Trusting in Zimbabwe

The eight-week program took Emily Cain, a recent graduate from the University of Kentucky, to Murray and Zimbabwe. “I’m so thankful that I was part of this experience,” she said. In Murray, her mission team worked with the First Baptist Church of Murray. The students helped the church with its Bible Club, Vacation Bible School and renovations. Team members also prepared for college retreats they were planning to hold in three different cities once they arrived in Zimbabwe. “There were lots of changes to the original plan,” however, according to Cain. 859.647.2722

No one signed up for the retreat in the first city. So the team ended up working at an orphanage. Time spent at the orphanage became Cain’s favorite part of the trip. During the cold nights, her team built a bonfire to stay warm and hosted a worship service. The orphans would join them. “It was just simple worship,” she said. “The music was so beautiful and you could see the stars. It really allowed me to reflect on what God was doing there.” Cain said the entire trip was “a life-changing experience in a lot of ways.” “It changed me, seeing another culture,” she explained. “We’re pretty privileged here and I realized the things I think I need I don’t need at all.” Working with her teammates, she learned how their differences complemented each other. She learned to trust her new friends, as well as her God.

Helping in Greece

Meredith Eckstein and Cory Spaulding spent time in Bowling Green and Greece. In Bowling Green they worked with Christ Fellowship Community Church’s Sports Camp, Warren County’s Church Basketball Association’s Summer Basketball Camp, and Eastwood Baptist Church’s Backyard Bible Club.

Emral to edit Recorders Community Recorder

The Community Recorders have a new editor, one who is familiar to some of you. Marc Emral returns as editor. He previously edited the Recorders in the early 2000s, and grew up in Latonia. Emral has more than 25 years of experience with the Community Press and Recorder. He has been an editor since 1988, start- Emral ing his career in Blue Ash. Since then he has edited or been involved with every newspaper in the group.

munity development company that focuses on a particular area in Athens called Kypseli. Kypseli, a community made up of refugees from different ethnic backgrounds, has a lot of racial tension, according to Eckstein. She said their mission team worked primarily with youth. “We’d get all the children to work together for a common goal like playing a game,” said the Morehead State University junior. “It was neat to see them come together and be on the same team and learning together. Despite their differences they learned that they can interact and have fun together and be a community.” A recent Kentucky State University graduate, Spaulding said he appreciated the opportunity to share his faith with others. “(This mission trip) reminded me the despair and hopelessness worldwide and more importantly in my own backyard,” he said. “We were able to share our faith and hope with many who are hopeless and just coasting through life with no meaning, goals or purpose.” In turn, Spaulding said he found inspiration to be his best.

Florence hip-hop artist stays true to self By Melissa Stewart


FLORENCE — Standing at 6 foot 5 and weighing in at 350 pounds with tattoos from the tip of his fingers inking up his forearms, Florence hip hop artist EZ Sixosix looks a bit intimidating. “He certainly stands out,” his friend and fellow hip-hop artist Alexis Engle of Louisville said. Engle met EZ four years ago at a show. “He was the tallest, most tattooed guy in the room,” she laughed. “Seriously, he’s a talented artist and probably one of the best guys I know. He loves everybody, unless you give him a reason not to and with his size you don’t wanna do that.” EZ was born Eric Stanfield. The 29-year-old was nicknamed EZ when he was about 9. “My stepdad is African-American, so I grew up within that culture,” he

For more information on EZ, follow him on Facebook at 606music.

said. “The church I went to, I was the only white kid. There was an older black man there who always called me EZ. It just stuck.” EZ grew up in Maysville, where the area code is 606. To pay homage to his home state, when he “seriously” started recording and performing around 2005, he added the Sixosix to his stage name. After his son was still-

born in 2005, EZ went into a deep depression. So, he did what he’s always done in times of trouble, he turned to music – this time writing his own material. “People liked the material that came from that experience,” he said. “My friends and other people said I should record it.” He heeded their advice. EZ moved to Northern Kentucky where his music took off and he was

able to build a fan base. By 2010, he was opening for many mainstream and underground acts including Bone Thugs-NHarmony, Juvinile, pastor troy, Eminem’s group D12, Haystak, Three Six Mafia, Insane Clown Posse, Jellyroll, and Tech N9ne. The last couple of years, EZ has taken a break from shows and concentrated on putting out mix tapes, building his name and private record label Rare Breed Music Group. His recently released mix tape also bears the name of his label; it’s titled “Rare Breed.” He released it in April of this year. According to EZ’s friend, hip-hop artist Able

Cooper, of Michigan, that’s just what EZ is – “a rare breed.” “We are a rare breed, you know what I’m saying – something you haven’t heard before, the rare breed in this genre. EZ has a lot to offer.” EZ and Cooper have recently teamed up as part of the group 10-31, which is set to go on an East Coast tour the last half of October. In addition, EZ just signed a management deal with Llibza Entertainment based out of Kansas City, Mo. EZ said he’s working on another CD, “Broke Local Celebrity,” which he

Florence students hone skills in summer

Community Recorder

Florence Elementary School hosted summer enrichment sessions for the second year, promoting college- and careerreadiness skills. This year’s sessions featured the theme of “How Do I Get There From Here?” with an added focus on cultures around the world. Students came to school for four hours each morning in June to participate in learning activities and were given “travel passports” to document all of their learning experiences.

Is your business engaged in education? As a business you can support the education pipeline and be a key partner for student success. Simply put, successful students equal a quality future workforce. Not sure how to get involved? Now there is a new business engagement toolkit that employers can use to help them focus their efforts. “Our company has been committed to education for a number of years, but now we have a new toolkit that provides us with concrete information about programs that have measurable results and demonstrated impact in our schools,” said Jean Loftus of Loftus Plastic Surgery. “We want our commitment of time and resources to make a real difference, and having this toolkit makes it possible to do so.” This year, the Northern Kentucky Education Council’s volunteer Action Team that focuses on business engagement developed the toolkit which outlines ways in which a business can help impact student achievement. The toolkit provides concise program overviews, success stories, and ways to get involved. By using the toolkit, businesses can easily match their available resources and areas of interest with specific programs and initiatives. Graphic design for the toolkit was made possible by establishing a unique collaboration with Thomas More College’s Art Department. Assistant Professor Rebecca Ruehl Amann and her students donated both time and talent to the project for the graphic design. The Action Team, comprised of business, education and community leaders, is currently developing a strategic distribution plan to get the toolkit into “the hands” of business leaders. In partnership with the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, the team is identifying local companies that may be interested in connecting with neighboring

schools and engaging in toolkit programs. Melanie Frey, regional business manager for Turner Construction and cochair of the Action Team, said, “The involvement of local businesses in high impact education initiatives is critical to the economic prosperity of our region. Our business community requires a prepared workforce which requires a community-wide investment and the support and engagement of local businesses in education. This toolkit shows employers how to do that effectively.” For instance, a Junior Achievement section helps corporate and community volunteers promote workforce readiness through easy-to-implement programs. Business Education Success Teams can partner with local schools to support student needs and develop activities that impact student achievement. Through One-to-One Reading, business and community volunteers can help struggling readers in first through third grade. Under service learning, organizations can help students develop critical problem solving skills, energize employees and learn the benefits of meaningful civic engagement. “We are focused on helping each one of our students reach their full potential and our business partners play an essential role in the education of our youth,” said Dr. Terri Cox-Cruey, superintendent of Kenton County Schools and member of Action Team 5. “With their support, our students will reach their college and career goals.” The toolkit was made possible through a grant to Action Team 5 from Vision 2015.

UC Health wins OK for Florence clinic

University of Cincinnati Health has won Kentucky’s approval to build a three-story $8.8 million ambulatory care clinic in Florence. The clinic, scheduled to open in 2015 near Interstates 71/75 and Turfway Road, will boost competition in the Northern Kentucky market, which is currently dominated by St. Elizabeth Healthcare. The move is another sign of how of the Cincinnati region’s five major health systems are both expanding their footprints – and cutting costs – in reaction to moves by competitors locally and changes in the industry nationally. The national industry is being reshaped by the federal health care reform law that takes effect in 2014, as well as continuing consolidation of doctors and services under corporate umbrellas. The Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services granted a certificate of need for UC Health’s 42,000-square foot clinic on June 20.

Coaching News

» Former Cincinnati Red Dave Collins was named St. Henry’s head baseball coach Aug. 1. The 60-year-old Collins amassed 1,335 hits and stole 395 bases in a 16-year playing career (including two stints with the Reds: 1978-81 and 1987-89). Collins last coached in MLB in 2010 when he served as first base coach for the Florida (now Miami) Marlins and has worked the last few years giving individual instruction to youth players at the Erlanger Batting Cage. Collins served as a high school basketball coach in his offseasons with the Reds, coaching boys’ teams at Mason

and Springboro and then when his playing career ended - he coached boys’ basketball at Anna High School in Anna, Ohio and was boys’ basketball and baseball coach at Lake Orion High School in Lake Orion, Mich. “Those experiences coaching in high school helped me a lot, because it’s when you realize you’re not a good coach that you become a good coach,” said Collins. “It’s not just about Xs and Os; it is about having philosophy of life and developing the kid and not the player. That’s what I want to do at St. Henry. This is not about Dave Collins; it’s about the kids at St. Henry.”

BOONE COUNTY — Breaking through in the Ninth Region is always difficult, but the Ryle volleyball program is looking to climb further up than before as the Raiders have an experienced and talented team this year. Ryle was 28-8 last season and 33rd District champions. The Raiders also won the Jefferson County Invitational. Ryle returns six starters led by seniors Harper Hempel (setter/outside hitter), Alexa Nichols (middle blocker), Alexis DeLaGarza (middle/right side hitter) and Sophia Dellecave (libero). Also returning are junior Ashley Bush (outside hitter/setter) and sophomore Chase Barber (libero). Nichols has committed to Division I Belmont University in Nashville, while Bush has committed to Northwestern. Other players to watch include juniors Kay Butler (hitter), Ellie Butler (right-side hitter/middle blocker) and Erika Keohane (right-side hitter); and freshman Hayley Bush (hitter/ setter). Tasha Lovins returns for her 12th season as head coach with a 266-130 record. “I am looking forward to this season,” she said. “We have several players with varsity experience returning as well as some strong newcomers to varsity.” Ryle started 2013 on a good note, winning the varsity championship at the Bluegrass Games Aug. 2-4. Ryle hosts North Oldham in a scrimmage Aug. 13 and goes to Campbell County Aug. 15. Ryle starts the regular year Aug. 20 at Lexington Dunbar and debuts at home Aug. 27 against Conner.

About 1,200 people turned out at Turfway Park, May 18, for the third-annual Northern Kentucky Walk to Defeat ALS, a fundraising and awareness event to combat the neurodegenerative disease commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. The event generated more than $46,000 in donations that directly benefit the ALS Association Kentucky Chapter, which supports those affected by ALS in the Commonwealth and the surrounding area. The majority of the crowd walked as teams participating

in honor or memory of relatives or friends afflicted with the disease, which attacks brain and spinal cord cells that control voluntary motor function. There is no cure or treatment to halt progression of the disease. A larger venue was required after the initial Northern Kentucky Walk to Defeat ALS grew from 300 walkers in 2011 to more than 1,200 this year, when Turfway opened its facilities to the walk and its participants for the first time.

Trap shooting requires near perfection to win, but instead of feeling pressure, local students feel nothing but fun when they’re competing. Northern Kentucky’s scholastic trap shooting team has had another strong summer as they are taking aim in several tournaments. In trap shooting, a circular clay target, or “bird,” is thrown out in front of the shooter from random directions. Students have to shoot with it a rifle from 16 yards away. “We have had an outstanding year so far in the first three competitions,” said Dennis Menning, head coach of the team. The team practices at the Bob White Club in Claryville near Campbell County High School. Members travel from all over Northern Kentucky to participate. Nationals was July 19-20 in Sparta, Ill. at the renowned World Shooting Center, which has 120 trap fields spread out over three miles. More than 2,000 kids were in the meet. “Vendors from all across the country will be there to display the latest in shooting equipment,” Menning said before the event. “It promises to bring out the best in all the shooters competing there. The kids will be able to meet other kids from across the nation and make lasting friendships. It is the granddaddy of all shoots.” In a standard competition, each shooter has 200 targets, with a five-person team aiming for a perfect score of 1,000. “It takes a lot of dedication and focus and keeping your composure when you miss a bird,” said Tanner Hamilton of Campbell County. “You tell

Why are N. Ky. gas prices so high? in Kentucky. In other words, our investigation indicated Marathon has a regional monopoly that allows it to Jack Conway manipulate gas prices at the COMMUNITY RECORDER GUEST wholesale COLUMNIST level. Even after approving the merger in the 1990s, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) warned that of the nine states involved in the merger, one state bears watching – that was Kentucky. Marathon, which bases its prices off of the Chicago Spot Market, is the dominant supplier of gas to retailers who sell that gas in Kentucky. In Louisville and Northern Kentucky, where the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandates that reformulated gas (RFG) must be used, it supplies

As I travel the state, I am frequently asked what I can do about high gas prices and price fluctuations across the commonwealth. I understand the frustration with high gas prices. I understand how tough it is on hardworking families. No one wants to choose between filling up the gas tank or putting food on the table or paying a bill. And many of us rely on our vehicles to get to work, so that we can pay our bills. Be assured, protecting Kentucky consumers at the gas pumps is a top priority of mine. So, why are gas prices in parts of Kentucky between 12 and 20 cents higher on average? In 2008, we launched an investigation into the wholesale price of gasoline. Our experts uncovered strong data to suggest that Marathon’s acquisition of Ashland Oil in the late 1990s negatively impacted competition in the wholesale gasoline market

nearly 100 percent of the wholesale RFG. Whether you buy gas at a Chevron station, BP or Thornton’s, you are likely buying Marathon gas. EPA requirements account for about a 10-cent increase in the price of reformulated gas. Our investigation shows the monopoly accounts for the additional 5 to 10 cent difference. After we completed our investigation in 2008, we provided then FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz with our findings because this is an antitrust issue that falls under the FTC’s jurisdiction. The FTC did nothing. We even made our case to the U.S. Attorney General and the Justice Department’s Oil and Gas Price Fraud Working Group. Again, federal regulators have done nothing to address Marathon’s dominant position in Kentucky. I refuse to let this matter rest. Recently, I spoke with the FTC’s new Chairwoman Edith

Ramirez about our findings and have sent our report to the Commission for a second review. I have also spoken with FTC Commissioner Julie Brill about this matter. It is also important to note, price differences between communities are not necessarily indicative of price-gouging or price fixing. Legitimate cost and competitive differences may cause the price of gasoline to be higher in one community than another. Similarly, it is not necessarily an antitrust violation if one station matches a competitor’s price as long as there is no agreement to fix prices. Kentucky’s price-gouging statute can only be triggered by the governor during a declared emergency and for a specific amount of time following that emergency. This statute prohibits price increases for certain commodities/emergency supplies grossly in excess of

Girl Scout Troop 1967, seventh-grade troop from Burlington, Florence, and Hebron, spent three hours picking up trash along Northside Drive and Kilgore Place in Hebron on July 25. We participated in cleaning up the community through the Boone County Trash for Cash program.

We found pop cans, bottles, a golf ball, a windshield wiper and other odds and ends. But more than anything, we picked up cigarette butts. Please realize this is trash and is very timeconsuming to pick up. Fortunately for our scouts, we did not encounter any hazardous items to be removed. The girls were really surprised by how much trash and how many people must smoke

We have been vigilant in protecting consumers against price-gouging at the pumps. As you may recall, we fined retailers into the six figures in the wake of Hurricanes Katrina, Ike and the Ice Storm for gouging. As your attorney general, I have taken action against retailers who have gouged consumers at the pumps. I have studied and identified the broader issue of Marathon’s stranglehold on the wholesale gas market in Kentucky. Now, it’s time for federal regulators to take action and I again call on them to do so.

Popular class learns the old-fashioned way By Kamellia Soenjoto Smith Recorder Contributor

Michelle Winters pours grape jelly into a sterilized jar at the Jam and Jelly Making Class at the Boone County Cooperative Extension Service in Burlington. KAMELLIA SMITH FOR THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

Why make your own jam when you can just buy it at the store? “It’s the love that goes into it,” answered Lynda Crouthers of Elsmere. She grew up learning how to make jam from her great aunt and has been hoping to bring back the family tradition. “I want my grandchildren to be able to enjoy it.” On Monday morning, July 29, she came to the Boone County Cooperative Extension Service in Burlington to learn how to make jams and jellies. “I love watching people eat the things that I’ve prepared,” she continued. “So I prefer it be homemade for them.” Delashea Daniels of Elsmere came for another reason. “I have three daughters, and two of them love grape jelly. That’s

all they eat, all the time,” she laughed. “So if I can make it at home and control which ingredients are in it, it would be awesome, because we’re living a healthy lifestyle.” Michelle Winters of Crescent Springs has a 6-year-old son. “He loves to cook and bake anything in the kitchen,” she shared. “He has tons of energy.” She thought making jam would be a good activity for him. “Hopefully it’ll wear him out.” “We have a lot of fruit trees,” explained Ann Crary of Burlington. “We have peaches, plums, blackberries, raspberries. So I need to find something to do with them.”

The Jam and Jelly Making class has been offered since 2009. Diane Mason and Kathy Byrnes are the instructors. One of their objectives that day was demonstrating how to make strawberry jam. Together with the students they crushed the berries, added pectin, brought the mixture to a boil, then added sugar. The result was a bubbling red liquid emitting a sweet aroma guaranteed to make you hungry. One by one, students poured the hot jam into sterilized jars. “This class is usually held every other year,” Mason said. “The waiting list is filled because more and more people are getting interested in it.”

After spending over three hours learning the basic skills, the students were confident to try it at home. “This is so simple. It’s something that I can teach my kids and grandkids,” Crouthers said. “We just have to be particular about the directions and following the correct order,” Crary added. Carol Ann Morrow of Union was glad to discover the extension service after moving from Cincinnati five years ago. “I think it is the most welcoming place in Boone County. I have learned a lot that has made me a more confident homemaker,” she said. “I hope I never run out of classes that I can come to.”

more zucchini bread recipes and how to freeze zucchini recipes. Readers want to know: How do you freeze zucchini? Shredded: I don’t peel mine, though colleague and professional baker and canner Cheryl Bullis does. I don’t blanch but do pack mine in a little more than 2 cup measures, since when you thaw it, you’ll lose volume as liquid drains out. Slices: Cut into slices, 1 ⁄4 to 1⁄2 inches thick. Blanch in boiling water for 3 minutes. You’ll want the water boiling and enough to cover the zucchini. You can blanch several batches in the same water; just add more water if necessary. Cool immediately after blanching in ice water, drain very well, and pack in freezer containers or freezer baggies. (One reader likes to lay the slices in a single layer and freeze hard,


I can tell what’s going on, food wise, from my readers simply by the requests sent in. This week zucchini and cucumbers dominated. Apparently everybody’s zucchini is producing nonstop, just like mine. I like the fact that our Community Press family wants to find ways to use this summer veggie. Most of the requests were for zucchini bread recipes. Zucchini bread freezes well and is pretty easy to make. And the variations are Rita endless, Heikenfeld like the RITA’S KITCHEN two recipes I’m sharing today. Both are in my Recipe Hall of Fame. Requests for cucumber recipes were slightly behind the zucchini inquiries. I always think of my German mother-inlaw, Clara, when I make my version of her marinated cucumbers with fresh dill from my garden.

Over the years we’ve had bands such as Foreigner, Eddie Money, 38 Special, Three Dog Night, KC and the Sunshine Band and Dierks Bentley,” said Josh Anderson, general manager of the Florence Freedom. “Of all these shows, none was more popular than the Styx show, so we were looking forward to bringing them back.” For those taking a “stay-cation” over the Labor Day holiday, the Florence Freedom has booked Grand Funk Railroad on Saturday Aug. 31. The group has long been a radio favorite to the point where, according to Jim Shoe of 88.9fm ClassX, “I doubt if a day goes by that their hits like, American Band, Bad Time, and Locomotion are not heard.” Anderson agreed, adding, “Grand Funk Railroad probably should be in the Rock and Roll Hall
