BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Benefit planned for Union girl, 4 Caroline Belcher has a rare disease By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

UNION — It’s been almost one year since the Belcher family moved from their home in Northern Virginia to Union. Though they may be new to the community, their Union neighbors are rallying behind the family as their 4-year-old daughter Caroline battles a rare cancer. Missy Owens, who owns the Goddard School in Florence, her husband Jerry and 17year-old son Jason along with Jennifer Borcher sit in one of the school’s colorful classrooms, filled with children’s drawings and tot-sized tables, as they continue planning efforts on a benefit for Caroline. The benefit is from noon to 6 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 18, at Jane’s Saddlebag, 13989 Ryle Road, Union. Live music will be performed by DRD Band, Sami and the Ugly Truth, Dan Walsh and Jason Owens Band. The event also features Tshirts and bracelets, games, a fun zone for kids and a silent auction. It was after the family ar-

rived in Kentucky that Caroline became ill, her mother Emily Belcher said. They thought she was adjusting to the move – to new germs, a new preschool. But, Emily said, the fact Caroline was throwing up “was a red flag.” Scans and MRIs revealed lesions throughout Caroline’s brain and spine. Days after being admitted to the hospital Nov.1, Emily said Caroline was diagnosed with PNET, or primitive neuroectodermal tumors. The Belchers had enrolled at the Goddard School, Missy Owens said. “That happened and my heart just broke for them because they have no family here, they have two other children and I can’t imagine being in that situation without knowing anybody around me,” she said. Borcher met the family through her job at Union Pet Hospital. “I got involved because I couldn’t imagine being in their shoes,” she said, “and if there was anyway I could make life a little bit easier, I was going to do it.” Jason, who’s also a local muSee BENEFIT, Page A2

Kick up your boots ‘n’ heels Party with purpose targets child abuse By Melissa Stewart mstewart@nky.com

FLORENCE — Kick up your boots ‘n’ heels to fight child abuse 7-11 p.m. Friday, Aug. 23, at the Radisson Hotel Cincinnati Riverfront in Covington. The Family Nurturing Center in Florence is hosting its19th annual August Affair, Boots & Heels: The Remix. “Because of the success of last year’s event, our volunteer planning committee decided overwhelmingly to bring back our fun theme of Boots & Heels,” said Tracy Fuchs, director of marketing and special events for the center. “It’s truly a party with a purpose; to prevent and confront all forms of child abuse and neglect.” According to Jane Herms, executive director of the center, more than five children die everyday in the U.S. as a result of child abuse. “Every single day,” she said. “It is every adult’s responsibility to protect children and confront all forms of child abuse and neglect. But this won’t happen until we change the conversation from fear and avoidance to full awareness and discussion of the prevalence and signs of abuse, the prevention strate-

County fair fights heroin epidemic By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

BURLINGTON — In the distance, the midway of the Boone County 4-H and Utopia Fair is filled with the sounds of a summer that’s drawing to a close. Rides are whirling and fairgoers chatter and laugh as the smells from the many food vendors waft through the mild August dusk. But it’s not all fun, games and fried food at the fair this week, though there’s plenty of each. Faced with a growing heroin

According to Adam Howard with the Boone County Alliance, the organization focuses on providing information and awareness of drug and alcohol abuse in the county. “The Boone County Alliance initiative that is specifically focusing on heroin is distributing push cards this week at the See HEROIN, Page A2

Fair delights the senses, reunites friends By Nancy Daly ndaly@nky.com

BURLINGTON — An informal poll at the Boone County 4-H and Utopia Fair indicates fair-goers have a range of reasons for coming back to the fair each year. “It seems very family friendly,” said Mike Phillips of Walton while navigating his way down a crowded midway on Monday night, Aug. 5. “I like the horse shows because I grew up riding horses and horses are a big part of our community,” said Jackie Heyenbruch, marketing coordinator for the Boone County Parks Department. Heyenbruch, who was working an information table in Wednesday’s late-afternoon heat, is a lifelong Boone County resident. Her fellow parks employee, Erin Giwer, is new to the Boone County fair, which was expected to draw 40,000 visitors by its conclusion on Saturday, Aug. 10. “I love all fairs so I was really excited to get to work here this week,” said Giwer. “I love the demolition derby, I love the food and

I love that I can wear my cowboy boots.” Boone County Commissioner Matt Dedden was spotted at the fair snack area on Wednesday night, Aug. 7. His favorite part of the fair? “Country ham,” Dedden answered quickly. “Because I look forward to it all year long and I finally get to eat it,” he said, holding what remained of his ham and cheese sandwich. “I’ve been up here four days in a row eating it.” Dedden was asked if he wasn’t doing more at the fair than sampling the cuisine. “A little bit of politicking,” acknowledged Dedden, a candidate for 2014 judge-executive. “Just a little bit though.”

While waiting in line for the Ferris wheel, Jessica Chapman, a Cooper High School student from Florence, said the best part of the fair is “riding all the rides and seeing old friends.” Her sister Courtney, who goes to Ryle High School, agreed about the rides, but also likes the food, especially funnel cakes. County Clerk Kenny Brown contemplated our question while sitting at a cafe table in the Republicans booth on Monday night. His favorite part: “There’s people I only see at the fair. I’ve been coming here my whole life.” Judge-executive Gary Moore had the most philosophical answer to the Recorder’s question. “I like (the fair) be-

cause it’s where the new Boone County, those in the new subdivisions, meet the old Boone County, the deep-rooted community,” Moore said. “Just seeing them come together makes the fair a special time of year.” For Boone County Jailer Ed Prindle, though, the best thing about the fair comes down to the senses. “The smells .. the country ham, the funnel cake.” Tom Stone, visiting the fair Monday from West Harrison, Ind., had a similar answer. The cinnamon spread atop his elephant ear was an olfactory treat for anyone in a 5-foot radius. Follow @Nancy_Daly on Twitter.

Each card has a photo and information of one of three local 20-somethings who have died this year from heroin. The back includes websites that offer assistance and warning signs to look for concerning heroin abuse. Roland’s daughter Tabatha, a 2006 graduate of Conner High School, is one of the profiles on the cards. From the front of the card, Tabatha, who was just 24 when she died April 16, looks like an allAmerican girl next door, with her blonde hair pulled into a ponytail. Her interests are listed as dance,gymnastics,cheerleading and shopping. “We have a lot of family and friends here that support the cause because they have family members and friends in the same situation,” said Roland, who since her daughter’s death organized Tabatha’s Fight.

gies and the response.” The August Affair event is focused on raising awareness. Tricia Franke, of Cold Spring, has attended August Affair the last two years. “Awareness of any issue is the first step to creating a solution and making a difference,” she said. “I believe we need to do what we can as a society to provide stable, safe homes for children to grow up in and learn. I believe children who have a nurturing environment have a better chance at succeeding in life and contributing back to soci-

According to Howard, the fair has 40,000 visitors annually. Over the course of the next several months the Alliance will embark on an awareness campaign to educate the public about the heroin epidemic.

Opening up about a painful subject

They’ve found that people don’t like to talk about the topic, “and it’s a very unpleasant subject,” but, Howard said, if parents don’t know what to look for or they’re not familiar with the warning signs, the problem will continue. That makes the fair “a tremendous opportunity considering the size of the audience,” he said. Howard said Aug. 7 he had been to the fair every night at that point “and there have been easily between 50 and 75 people each evening who can talk about somebody who has been impacted by heroin,” whether that’s family or a close friend. Carol Wagner’s son Chad “died from the disease of drug addiction” in 2005. Following his death, Wagner and her husband started the Foxfire Foun-

dation, which aims to educate the public that “drug addiction is a deadly disease and keep people from taking that path.” Wagner, of Fort Mitchell, was also passing out information at the fair. Outside of the Foxfire booth was a board where visitors could sign a name for those who died from drugs. Some names were followed with messages like “always loved, never forgotten.”

Addiction ‘does not discriminate’

Chad, said Wagner, was a “great kid.” “Drug addiction does not discriminate,” she said. “It takes all economic levels, it takes all religious denominations, it takes every race.” The fair, she said, is a perfect place to share information and people come up and share their own stories. “When I said it doesn’t discriminate, I mean it doesn’t discriminate,” Wagner said. “Believe me. You spend an hour in this booth and you’ll be emotionally drained.”

Walton-Verona plans for $6 million gym remodel By Melissa Stewart mstewart@nky.com

WALTON — The Walton-Verona School District is awaiting approval from the state for a $6 million remodel of the gymnasium used by both middle and high school students. The project is part of the overall district facility plan that has been approved by the Ken-

tucky Department of Education. This particular portion of the project is the “higher priority,” district Superintendent Bob Storer said. Plans for the remodel are to connect the current gym to the school building. Although plans are in the early stages, the school board has discussed a new connector space housing an exercise room

and hall of fame walkway. The hall of fame would display various sports awards collected over the years. The remodel will also include the addition of a larger band room, new choral rooms, and upgraded locker and restroom facilities. The design process is still in the tentative stages, Storer said. Storer said this is an impor-

tant project for the district because “in terms of our facilities, the music areas and gymnasium are the only classrooms that have not been remodeled.” The timeline for the project is unconfirmed. Ehmet Hayes, principal architect of Robert Hayes and Associates, who has been working with the district on design ideas, said ideally bids would be put out at the first

of 2014. Money for the project is coming from the facilities fund portion of the school’s budget. A portion is also coming from a School Facilities Construction Commission grant, Storer said. Want to continue the conversation? Tweet @MStewartReports

Boone looks to take Ryle robotics district-wide Team will link four Boone high schools By Melissa Stewart mstewart@nky.com

Emerson Industrial Automation in Florence and Boone County Schools are looking to offer a district-wide robotics team that will link the four high schools and ignite a passion for learning. “We see (the robotics team) as a way to open up communication about a common topic, and make way for more innovation and cooperation between the four schools,” Merle Heckman of Emerson said. Emerson has sponsored a For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) Robotics team at Ryle High School for the last three years. The team competes in the national FIRST Robotics Competition each year. Combining the excitement of sports with the rigors of science and technology, the competition is known as the varsity sport for the mind. It is a program offered through FIRST, a nonprofit organization that designs programs that motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math. FIRST was founded in 1989 by inventor and entrepreneur Dean Kamen to inspire students’ interest and participation in science and technology, Heckman explained. “I believe what Kamen saw when he started this program was that the average youth is not going to be a professional NBA player, but they can be an engineer or a scientist,” Heckman said. “We (at Emerson) look at this as an investment in engineers of the future.” He hopes the Ryle Robotics team will evolve into the the Boone County Robotics team. Currently, the district is looking for more professional mentors, sponsors, and a larger facility for meetings and storage in order to make that happen.

FYI For more information or to support the Boone County FIRST Robotics team, call 859-2831003.

According to Emerson engineer David Lindsay, who helps the Ryle team, being involved has been “very rewarding and a lot of fun.” “What we’re trying to do is inspire,” Lindsay said. “We want to show the students these skills and inspire them to pursue more. We want to spark their interest.” Lindsay said he was especially excited about this year’s competition,and impressed with the students’ strategy and hard work.

This year, robotic teams across the nation were asked to design a robot, from scratch, to throw Frisbees to earn points. For bonus points, the robots could be programmed to climb. The climbing structure offered three levels; the higher the level the more the points. Teams were given six weeks to complete the task. “The glamorous thing was to shoot the Frisbees, but the students realized the way to win was to climb,” Lindsay said. “They came up with it.” According to Kara Lindsay, 15, David’s daughter and member of the Ryle Robotics team, there were too many variables with the Frisbees, including the aim and interference from other robots on the field. The opportunity to earn bonus points

offered fewer variables and more points. So they built and programmed their robot to climb, and focused strictly on getting to the highest level. “It was the most logical thing to do,” said Kara, a sophomore. During many of the mini competitions throughout the day, their logic was proven to be on the mark. During the Frisbee portion of one of the mini competitions, for example, the team that Ryle was a part of earned just two points while their competitors had 27. After the bonus points were factored in, the team Ryle was on had earned 45 points; their competitors 37, with 30 earned by Ryle’s climbing robot. “The competition was fun,”

Kara said. “It was nerve wracking – is it going to make (the climb)? And it did.” The best part of the experience, Kara said, was that “everyone comes together as a team.” Heckman said Emerson and the district hopes the four high schools can come together to build upon the robotics program. “It’d be so great if the entire district has this opportunity,” he said. “This program gets students excited about science, math, problem solving and technology. We hope that other businesses will get involved. This is a great investment.”

FIRST PASS AT 2013 GIRLS SOCCER

St. Henry, Ryle girls among county soccer leaders By James Weber jweber@nky.com BOONE COUNTY — Girls soc-

cer teams in Boone County have plenty of goals on their minds as they start their regular seasons Aug. 19. Here is a look at local teams based on information submitted by coaches:

Rebels try to build on state semis berth By James Weber jweber@nky.com

BOONE COUNTY — Soccer pitches around Northern Kentucky will reach fever pitch when regular-season games begin Aug. 19. Here is a look at Boone County teams based on information coaches submitted .

Boone County

The Rebels had a dream season last year, which ended with a loss to powerhouse St. Xavier in the state semifinals. Counting that defeat, Boone compiled a 20-4-3 record, winning its first district championship since 2000 and first regional crown since 2002. Boone beat Harrison County and North Hardin in the state tourney. The Rebels return three starters for head coach Nathan Browning, who has a 41-23-9 record at Boone. They are Evan O’Hara, Brent Rice and Brett Mayberry. O’Hara is one of the top returning players in the state and in this area, tallying 24 goals and eight assists in 2012. Other players to watch start with Michael Carroll, Joe Sanchez and Haven Borkowski. “With a very tough schedule ahead of us, we definitely have our work cut out this year,” Browning said. “After making it as far as we did last season, we will definitely have a target on our back going in to each game

this year. With as much talent as we have in Northern Kentucky, the season will be very difficult, just like every year.” The schedule starts with three games in Lexington against teams from there. Boone plays at Brossart Aug. 20 in between and has its first home game against Cooper Aug. 27.

Conner

The Cougars were 12-6-1 last year and returns a double-digit goalscorer in Landon Lamblez. Conner starts at home Aug. 20 against Simon Kenton. The team did not submit a preview form.

Cooper

The Jaguars are coached by Doug Flesch, who has four seniors on his roster. Cooper plays games in North Oldham Aug. 19 and 21 and has its first home game Aug. 29 against Scott. The team did submit a preview form. Cooper was 8-9-2 a year ago.

Ryle

The Raiders will have a new team this year after graduating all their starters from last year’s 17-6-1 unit. Six of those starters went on to play college soccer this fall. Stephen Collins, who has a 142-51-21 record at Ryle, has been able to rebuild before. The task this year starts with re-

turning veterans Brent Barnhorst, Cray McCarthy, Matt Roe, Nathan Roe and Aaron Hamrick. Collins expects a slow start but the same goals at the end, hoping the Raiders compete for district and regional championships.

St. Henry

Steve Hahn hopes for his fifth-straight winning season at St. Henry. He returns three starters in Will Fugazzi, K.C. Gromes and Keven Cawley. Other players to watch include Logan Dehner and Alex Green. Hahn said his Crusaders are a young group with a lot of skill. St. Henry plays at Lexington Catholic Aug. 20 and at Highlands Aug. 22 before its first home game Aug. 24 against Dixie Heights.

The Rebels were 9-12-1 last season. The Rebels list six seniors in Jessica Estes, Elizabeth Ganster, McKenzie Holland, Sydney Lamb, Christen Prather and Taylor Thamann. Freshman Peyton Black has great talent and potential. Boone returns eight starters overall and is 4-1 in preseason tournaments. Boone starts the year Aug. 19 at home against Scott.

Conner

The Cougars were 8-8-1 last year for head coach Katie Saunders, who enters her fifth year at the controls. She welcomes back six starters from the 2012 33rd District runner-up, including Jessica Fraiture, Kierra Dages, Camille Elliott, Carly Noel, Olivia Panella and Kaila Webb. Emma VonLehman is the top newcomer. While Conner returns half of its lineup, replacing the other half will be key. “After graduating eight seniors, we are a new team with a fresh outlook,” Saunders said. “We are young and excited about the potential and growth for this year and years to come.” Conner plays at Campbell County Aug. 19 and at Grant County Aug. 23 before its first home game Aug. 26 against Cooper.

Cooper The appropriately named Melinda Cooper takes over as head coach of the Jaguars this season. She inherits three returning starters: Senior Emily Conner, junior Sydney Newport and sophomore Madison Bleska. Coach Cooper expects the Jags to be strong in the middle with Conner as the focal point of the offense. Cooper hosts Simon Kenton Aug. 19 to start the year and plays at Newport Central Catholic Aug. 21 before hosting Dixie Heights Aug. 24.

Ryle

Dusty Margrave takes over as head coach for the Raiders, inheriting a team that went 126-2 last season and was district champions. He also inherits eight returning starters, counting junior Emily Hayes, senior Claire Manning, junior Claire Stockwell, junior Karlene Zembrodt, senior Jill Davenport, junior Emily Anderson, senior Claire Kolkmeyer and junior Lauren Duggins. Other players to watch include sophomore Carlie Molique, sophomore Emily Erdman, freshman Hannah Poe, freshman C.J. Grimes and freshman Allie Ast. “We’re looking to build on the increasing success the team has had the past three seasons,” Margrave said. “We have a very challenging schedule but with eight returning starters and five experienced seniors we’re looking to repeat our success in the district and beyond.” Ryle starts the year Aug. 19 at Highlands. After road games Aug. 21 and 23, Ryle See GIRLS, Page A6

Walton-Verona

Rob Zwick takes over the Bearcats this year. He inherits four returning starters in Eddie Hoffa, Brandon Acosta, Scott Smith and Jake Poland. Top newcomers start with Michael Martin and Zach Leffler. The Bearcats, led by five seniors, hope for a winning season and berth in the Eighth Region Tournament according to coach Zwick. W-V starts at Gallatin County Aug. 20 and has its first home game Sept. 3 against Covington Latin.

A state champion pole vault performer, he won state championships as a freshman and sophomore and was state runner-up as a junior and senior. Derek Smith (Highlands High School 1995-1999) Derek Smith was one of the finest two sport athletes ever in

Northern Kentucky. Smith played football at the University of Kentucky and basketball at NKU. In high school for the Bluebirds, he is Highlands’ second all-time leading scorer in basketball with more than 2,000 career points and 900 rebounds.

St. Henry

The Crusaders will miss a deep and talented graduating class from last year, led by Libby Leedom, who finished as Northern Kentucky’s second leading goal scorer all-time. Laura Felix, Morgan Potts and Jenna Litzler were also veteran starters who anchored the team last season. The Crusaders have built a strong and deep program under head coach Steve Lorenz, who enters his seventh season with a 103-24-7 record including one KHSAA state title. St. Henry was 15-6-2 last year, reaching the All “A” state final for the fifth straight year. Lorenz is confident in the depth of his program. “Our roster has more balance this season,” he said. “We’ll be able to get our top players on the field in positions where they can have the most impact on the game. The past couple of years we’ve had players slightly out of position to cover areas where we lacked depth or had a particular weakness. There will be a lot of competition for the start-

ing lineup and playing time throughout the season which will help us with the difficult schedule we play.” Returning starters are Hayley Leedom, Mallory Foley, Kirsten Bartlett, Sarah Bier and Emily Specht. Other players to watch start with Tori Silvati, Sarah Esselman, Sydney Auteri, Ally Dwyer and Haleigh Goderwis. St. Henry starts at Brossart Aug. 21 and hosts Woodford County Aug. 24.

Walton-Verona

The Bearcats went 4-16 last year but were conference champions for sixth-year head coach Jason Owens. W-V is young this year and has little depth but Owens said he has a group that is fundamentally sound and very strong in passing and possession. The leader is senior Shelby Mullikin, who enters the season with 62 career goals and will also be counted on for passing, defense and leadership. The only senior on the team, Mullikin also excels in basketball and track. Highly talented freshmen Taylor Cox and Sarah Johnston give the Bearcats a strong foundation to build on for the future. Sophomore Jordan Derenthal has a lot of speed and determination.

Kiger murders were August 1943

On Aug. 17, 1943, Carl Kiger and his son Jerry were shot dead and his wife shot in the hip. This took place at their summer home, Rosegate, on Route 25 south of Mt. Zion Road. Violent murder, gangster connections, big-name lawyers, the vice-mayor of Covington, Covington police, guns, gangsters, hearsay evidence, expert witnesses, reporter frenzy, alleged payoffs, sensationalized funerals, the accused a pretty teen-aged girl, a man and young son murdered in their beds, wife shot in the hip, big money found in the house, jail-house information, courtroom wired for teletype, bold newsprint headlines – galvanized the locals to the extent that those yet living who experienced it, remember it well. Boone County was a quiet, peaceful community in 1943. The Kiger trail caused a furor, not only locally, but nationally. A few years ago, a local group got together to re-create the courtroom drama. I daresay those of you fortunate enough to have seen it, re-

Kiger was the vice-mayor of Covington, then in the grip of organized gambling interests in a far-off city. Carl was reputed to be the “bag man.” Carl and his family lived on Crescent Avenue in Covington where the Cork and Bottle parking lot is now. They maintained a country home in Boone County. The hot night of Aug. 17, with the house windows and doors locked up tightly, the deeds were done. Boone sheriff, Jake Williams found the

Gearing up for breastfeeding success If you think breastfeeding success is all up to the mother and baby, you’re wrong. It’s true that the actual act of nursing is between mother and baby, but to set a mother up for long-term success at breastfeeding, she’ll need help from the baby’s father, grandparents, friends, family, her employer and policymakers. The statistics demonstrate the struggle: In Kentucky, more than half of moms, or 52.6 percent, start out breastfeeding their infants. Our numbers are much lower than the national average of 77 percent breastfeeding at birth. Then reality sets in. Moms get home, and they have other children, housework, work outside the home, errands to run … and the breastfeeding rates fall off. Just 32.5 percent of babies in Kentucky are breastfed at 6 months; by 12 months, the number drops to 18.9 percent. In 2011, Regina Benjamin,

then the U.S. Surgeon General, released a call to action to support breastfeeding. In it, she wrote, “Given the imporLynne M. tance of Saddler breastfeeding COMMUNITY for the health RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST and well-being of mothers and children, it is critical that we take action across the country to support breastfeeding.” While we still have a long way to go, recent policy changes are making breastfeeding easier. The Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Obamacare, requires health insurance plans to cover lactation support and counseling. This means women with insurance can get lactation consultations and breast pumps (rental or one for you to keep) at no cost.

There’s a catch, though: The provision only applies to insurance plans created after March 23, 2010. Many women are covered by plans created prior to this, which are exempt through a grandfather clause. However, as plans are revised, more women will be covered. If you are pregnant and plan to breastfeed, or are currently breastfeeding, call your insurance provider to see what breastfeeding benefits you are eligible for. Provisions in the Affordable Care Act also support women who choose to pump breast milk once they return to work. Employers with more than 50 employees must provide mothers with a private place, other than a bathroom, in which to express breast milk. They must also give women “reasonable break time” in which to pump for up to a year after the child is born. Lastly, Kentucky law also

protects breastfeeding mothers. State law is that, “A mother may breastfeed her baby or express breastmilk in any location, public or private, where the mother is otherwise authorized to be.” This means moms have the right to feed babies in public. We’ve heralded the health benefits of breastfeeding for many years, and that effect is shown by the increase in the number of mothers who initiate breastfeeding. But for long-term success, we need a shift in our culture – to a society that is more supportive of mothers who choose to breastfeed their babies, so that the good intentions of the mother who initiates breastfeeding at birth are easy to maintain with the support of her family, friends, employer and community.

Grimes is a more-thanformidable candidate handpicked by the establishment. Playing up McConnell’s obstructionist label while he looked on and smirked inches away in the first chair, she declared with the best jab of the afternoon, “If the doctors told Senator McConnell he had a kidney stone, he’d refuse to pass it.” McConnell disappeared before insurgent Matt Bevin introduced himself to the state. Bevin is a Kentucky immigrant and first-time candidate who might develop a niche following with support from unique places. Can such a challenger defeat an

establishment figure? Ask Rand Paul, the newcomer who ran under the Tea Party banner in 2010 to defeat McConnell’s hand-picked candidate. Grimes has created her own muddy track. Last week, Politico revealed five issues she refused to discuss, though her party has taken clear positions on the same. She must run from her leaders and from their views, while simultaneously convincing conservative and moderate Kentucky voters why they should support her. You can bet the old war horse will soon exploit his opponent’s uncertain start to avoid that one fateful career loss. David Wolfford teaches government and politics at Mariemont High School.

Everything from straws to packing peanuts

On July 30 the Ockerman Middle School Dance Team covered five miles of road in Burlington for a Trash for Cash event. There were 12 members of the team and their parents who picked up trash along Boone Aire Drive, Constitution Drive and Centennial Circle. We collected a lot of trash from these roads to help clean up our community. We were surprised how many cups, straws and bags from restaurants were along the roadways. We also picked up cans, bottles and a box of Styrofoam packing peanuts, which were just thrown on the side of the road. This experience made an impact on the girls on the team. It showed them what litter does to our community and what they can do to help. It provided them with an opportunity to see the problem and made them aware that every person must make an effort to stop littering.

McConnell knows it’s post time

On Saturday, Aug. 3, at the annual Fancy Farm picnic in far western Kentucky, Sen. Mitch McConnell and his two leading challengers – Tea Party candidate Matt Bevin and 34-year-old Democrat Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes – took the three inside positions. McConnell should have concerns out of the gate with a 51 percent disapproval, and being neck-and-neck with Grimes in two recent polls. He handled the challengers with tactics from a veteran’s campaign playbook and he realizes their handicaps. As McConnell approached the podium, roughly equally sized crowds representing McConnell and Grimes reflected the polls, yelling alternatively, “We Want Mitch” and “Ditch Mitch.” He re-

DAY 11 OPERA

By Becky Haltermon Contributor

M

y psychic froze, her dangling earrings dancing at her cheeks as she peered through the velvet-covered card table between us. “I’m getting the phrase, ‘Know thyself,’” she said. “You need to seek out your true self.” That’s exactly what I’m doing, I thought. I turned 30 on Aug. 6. Being the quintessential theatrical Leo that I am, I knew this mild milestone molehill required a transformation into a mountain of merriment and immoderation. I am, as my boyfriend once declared, “celebrasive.” Thus, “30 in 30 by 30” was born: I decided to undertake 30 new experiences in the 30 days leading up to my 30th birthday, documenting everything in my blog. Marking the third decade of my life would not merely be a reason to partake of cake but also an opportunity to undertake unknown adventures. Seeing a psychic was Day 15. Sadly, she had no advice to offer on my upcoming plans. She didn’t mention that I should probably reapply sunscreen on my legs while tubing or else risk a serious solar smackdown, and she made no mention of which ambrosial offerings at Hello Honey would make me happiest. But maybe it was for the best, as the unexpected always seemed to be the most fun part of each adventure. I’d already discovered that fencing with an épée is not as easy as my agile brother-in-law made it look, though he illustrated infinite patience while trying to teach me the basics. I’d gained a deeper appreciation for law enforcement by spending an evening riding with a thoughtful Boone County sheriff as he offered aid to those in need. I’d enjoyed a hilarious car ride with my parents who took me to the outer reaches of rural Kentucky searching for the Circle Line V “ghost ship” before we realized she was unspottable through the thick July underbrush. I’d donned a thrift store gown to an opera, wandered around the ravaged interior of the historic Russell Theatre in Maysville and spent a sweltering afternoon fashioning a knife from a deer bone at Big Bone Lick. I had hoped that all of these fresh adventures would push me to discover uncharted aspects of my personality, revealing unplumbed truths about who I am at this point in my life. But, just as my psychic was unable to tell me anything I didn’t already know, each adventure seemed to point to a reality that I’m already well aware of: I am incredibly lucky to be surrounded by amazing people. When a heartbreaking funeral forced me to cancel my plans one day, I resigned myself to morose wallowing. But my spectacular man woke me early with a surprise trip to a reptile show. It sounds silly, but being social with strangers and their accompanying snakes somehow made the day more bearable. When one Tuesday I was at a loss for adventure ideas, my parents were happy to spend dinner Googling a suitable surprise: a sprinkledoused treat at Fillmore’s Dairy Hut. My best friend offered to guide me through the orchard of an acquaintance, dutifully snapping photographic evidence while we giggled and sipped wine. Scrawling what can only be described as the most philosophical of pencil mustaches on my upper lip, my sister helped me stage an erudite picture to accompany my completion of the Proust Questionnaire. I’m afraid that neither my psychic nor I can see the future. But I don’t need a clairvoyant to know that whatever adventures await in the next 30 years, lasting relationships with my loved ones are at the heart of my happiness.

LIFE

AUGUST 15, 2013 • FLORENCE-UNION RECORDER • B3

Rita shares dilly beans, reader 7-Up cake recipes Sometimes I wish I was a high-tech person. Like a while back when I made dilly beans and took photos of the beans picked from my garden along with photos of the finished beans after canning. I still have the photo of the garden beans, but the finished beans in jars photo has vanished and I don’t know how to retrieve it from my camera. I can’t take another photo because, well, the beans are all gone. The recipe makes four jars and were so good that Rita we ate a jar Heikenfeld and gave RITA’S KITCHEN the other three away. But I promise you will love the beans, photo or not. I was blown away by the huge response to Tom W.’s request for a 7-Up cake that was published years ago in the Enquirer. The stories alone made me chuckle, not to mention how good all the recipes looked. I will share both in an upcoming blog. Today I’m sharing two versions: One from scratch, which Tom wanted, and another using a cake mix. Some folks don’t ice the cake, but others do so I’m sharing icing recipes as well.

Rita’s classic dilly beans

Friend and colleague Leah Ochs, director of Jungle Jim’s cooking school, has a similar recipe and substitutes Sriracha sauce to taste for the pepper flakes. 2 generous pounds green beans, trimmed to fit canning jars 4 teaspoons dill seed or 4 large heads dill 4 small cloves garlic 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, divided (optional) 21⁄2 cups clear vinegar 21⁄2 cups water 1 ⁄4 cup canning salt

Pack beans lengthwise into four hot pint jars, leaving 1⁄4-inch head

last. ⁄2 stick butter, melted Scant 2⁄3 cup sugar 1 ⁄3 cup bourbon (or whatever, rum is good too)

1

Stir in bourbon. Prick holes in cake and pour on glaze.

Doris Poore’s 7-Up cake icing

Doris, a Kentucky reader, had a recipe using a cake mix and also had an interesting icing. “The index card is all yellowed and stained. So, I know it’s a good one,” she said. 2 eggs, beaten 1 tablespoon flour 1 cup crushed pineapple, undrained 11⁄2 cups sugar 1 stick margarine 1 cup coconut

Rita used her own fresh green beans to make her dilly beans. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

space. To each pint, add 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper, 1 clove garlic and 1 teaspoon dill seed. Bring vinegar, water and salt to a boil. Pour immediately over beans, leaving 1⁄4-inch head space. Remove air bubbles by sliding a butter knife around inside edges of jars. Wipe rims clean with damp cloth. Place seals and rings on. Process 10 minutes in boiling water bath. These are best eaten chilled.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

If you don’t want to can these, cap and seal, cool to room temperature and store in refrigerator up to six months.

7-Up cake from scratch

Here’s Donna A.’s recipe from 30 years ago. Tom wanted a fromscratch recipe, so hopefully this will work. 11⁄2 cups butter, softened 3 cups sugar 5 eggs 3 cups flour 2 tablespoons lemon extract 3 ⁄4 cup 7-Up

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cream sugar and butter together and beat until light and fluffy (about 20 minutes with an electric beater). Add eggs, one at a time and

beat well. Add flour one cup at a time. Beat in lemon extract and 7-Up. Pour batter into a well greased and floured jumbo, fluted Bundt pan. Bake for 1-11⁄4 hours.

Simple lemon glaze

This is one I use for lemon pound cake. Just stir 2⁄3 cup confectioner’s sugar with 1 tablespoon or so lemon juice.

the alcohol. I’m not sure what you’d substitute.” Any suggestions? 1 package Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme Cake Mix 1 4-cup package instant lemon pudding 1 ⁄2 cup vegetable oil 4 eggs 1 cup 7-Up

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine above

ingredients and beat 2 minutes. Prepare a Bundt pan (spray well) and pour mixture in. Bake 45-55 minutes.

Diana’s glaze

Diane didn’t say if she cooked the glaze, but I would assume the sugar has to melt, so I’d cook it over very low heat until sugar melts. Add bourbon

Duke Energy Kentucky’s current monthly DSM rate for residential electric customers is $0.001988 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) and for nonresidential customers is $0.001104 per kilowatt-hour for distribution service and $0.001070 per kilowatt-hour for transmission service. Duke Energy Kentucky seeks approval to revise these rates as follows: Duke Energy Kentucky’s monthly DSM rate for residential gas customers would increase to ($0.038919) per hundred cubic feet and for non-residential gas customers would remain at $0.000000 per hundred cubic feet. Duke Energy Kentucky’s monthly DSM rate for residential electric customers would increase to $0.002003 per kilowatt-hour and for non-residential customers would increase to $0.001131 per kilowatt-hour for distribution service and would remain at $0.001070 per kilowatthour for transmission service. The rate contained in this notice is the rate proposed by Duke Energy Kentucky. However, the Public Service Commission may order a rate to be charged that differs from this proposed rate. Such action may result in a rate for consumers other than the rate in this notice. The foregoing rates reflect a proposed increase in electric revenues of approximately $91 thousand or 0.03% over current total electric revenues and an increase of $31 thousand or 0.03% over current gas revenues. A typical residential gas customer using 70 ccf in a month will see an increase of $0.03 or 0.04%. A typical residential electric customer using 1000 kWh in a month will see an increase of $0.02 or 0.02%. A typical non-residential electric customer using 40 kilowatts and 14,000 kWh will see an increase of $0.39 or 0.03%. Non-residential gas customers and non-residential electric customers served at transmission voltage will see no change in their bills from this application. Any corporation, association, body politic or person may by motion within thirty (30) days after publication or mailing of notice of the proposed rate changes, submit a written request to intervene to the Public Service Commission, 211 Sower Boulevard, P.O. Box 615, Frankfort, Kentucky 40602, and shall set forth the grounds for the request including the status and interest of the party. The intervention may be granted beyond the thirty (30) day period for good cause shown. Written comments regarding the proposed rate may be submitted to the Public Service Commission by mail or through the Public Service Commission’s website. A copy of this application filed with the Public Service Commission is available for public inspection at Duke Energy Kentucky’s office at 4580 Olympic Boulevard, Erlanger, Kentucky 41018 and on its website at http://www.duke-energy.com. This filing and any other related documents can be found on the Public Service Commission’s website at http://psc.ky.gov. CE-0000565760
