BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Three new principals start at Boone schools By Melissa Stewart mstewart@nky.com

Backpacks are packed, school buses fueled and lessons prepared. Everyone is ready for the opening of Boone County Schools. The ring of that first bell was Wednesday, Aug. 14. It marked the start of a new adventure for students, teachers and staff. It’s a special time, especially for the district’s three new principals. North Pointe Elementary and Florence Elementary schools welcome Michael Shires and Lisa Resing to the helm. Ockerman Middle School welcomes Michael Poiry.

For most sports injuries, it’s easy to tell what’s wrong with the athlete: Just look and see where the cast or the bandage is applied. With head injuries, the problems haven’t always been obvious, but the effects can be much worse than a sprained knee or a busted hand. Treating head injuries, concussions in particular, has been a higher priority at all levels of athletics in recent years, as awareness of long-term effects has increased. A concussion is defined as a traumatic brain injury caused by a blow to the head. “You can’t be too careful,” said Josh Stratton, head coach of New Richmond (Ohio) and former Lloyd Memorial

This year, will be Michael Shires’ first year with Boone County School District. He taught music for 12 years at a school system outside Chicago and for a year at Campbell County schools. Last year, he was principal at Lindeman Elementary in Erlanger. “Being a principal is one of the most difficult jobs I’ve done, but it’s the most rewarding,” said Shires Shires, 44, of Florence. “I love every minute of it.” According to Shires, being a principal means making decisions that are best for the kids. “It’s about keeping the kids first,” he said. He’s looking forward to getting to know students, parents and staff at North Pointe. His goal is to continue to move the school forward. In one word, his feelings about being principal: “Motivated.” “I want to challenge the students, faculty and parents to be involved and creative in how we educate students for the 21st century. I feel fortunate to be here. (Being in education) is such a pleasure and honor.”

Bringing out the best

Lisa Resing, 37, of Florence, will start her ninth year at Florence Elementary, this time as principal. “I’m really, really excited,” she said. “I can’t wait for our students to get back in school, I’ve missed them.

Lower-body injuries top list among youth sports By Tom Skeen tskeen@communitypress.com

HAMILTON COUNTY —

While concussions may get the most attention when it comes to injuries, they account for just 14 percent of all youth sports injuries (age 19 and under) according to a study done by USA Today. The study analyzed youth sports injuries in 2011 and 2012 and determined the three most common sports injuries are sprains/strains, fractures and contusions. When being more specific, Oxford Physical Therapy’s Liz Reis said injuries to the ankle, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and the shoulder’s are the most common injuries she sees as a physical therapist among high school athletes. In today’s world of expensive shoes, the argument has come about whether or not a shoe can cause an injury. The perception is you see more ACL tears today than you did 10-20 years ago when shoes weren’t as advanced, but Reis believes there are a variety of factors that play into any injury. “There is a push for a more natural shoe,” she said. “From a physical therapist’s perspective, if your foot mechanics are off, then it’s going to work up the chain and cause problems. … There is no rhyme or reason as to when these people are developing these injuries,

but in theory, most people need a good, supportive shoe.” Reis has seen an increase in Iliotibial Band Syndrome, or more commonly known as the ITSB, in high school athletes. Also known as “Runner’s Knee,” according to runnersworld.com it occurs when the IT band, a ligament that runs down the outside of the thigh from the hip to the shin, is tight or inflamed. The problem with the injury is it can be hidden with the use of anti-inflammatories and many athletes get back to their respective sport before the injury is fully healed. “The injury is not so much worrisome, but it can be difficult to rehab,” Reis said. “The (IT band) crosses the knee, so every time we bend our

knee the band actually slips under the bone and it’s just a repetitive injury. People just need to give it time to heal, rest and strengthen the other muscles.” One trend Reis has seen lately is an increase in hamstring strains in younger athletes. The reason is factually unknown, but Reis has her opinion. “I think it goes along with people gaining an understanding of stretching and warming up,” she said. “Some kids as they are going through growth spurts, their bones are elongating and the muscles are being forced to stretch out at the same time. So the kids are trying to stretch and using these muscles when they are working out, so they start to get some strain in the muscle. I think that is where a lot of these hamstring strains are coming in as they go through these growth spurts.” ACL tears, ITSB and hamstring problems are just three of hundreds of injuries that occur each high school sports season, but the prevention is all the same: Rest, adding prevention and strengthening exercises and proper technique top the list of way to prevent injuries.

medicine specialist at Commonwealth Orthopaedic Centers in Edgewood. He said middle and high school athletes with concussions should be withdrawn from sports completely, and maybe even withdrawn from school, to allow recovering brains sufficient time to rest. “We want to reduce the risk of repeat injury while they’re still recovering, and we also want to give rest to the brain,” said DesJardins. “We withdraw the athletes from sport, but also in school situations, we’re even sometimes withdrawing them from school. They can be very light-sensitive to fluorescent lights, computer screens; a lot of audio and visual input can exacerbate their headaches. They’ll routinely have a difficult time concentrating, and so the rest from cognitive brain function from the types of things going on in school every day can be really important in concussions that are more serious.” Another important factor in recovery is getting a good neurological evaluation. DesJardins said subtle symptoms, such as headaches or balance issues, can go unnoticed in general examinations. He said athletes returning to play while any concussion symptoms remain puts them at risk of “catastrophic brain swelling and death after a second impact.” The less severe, but still potentially devastating, risks of secondary impact include chronic headaches,

Resing taught in physical education. She spent five years at Kenton County Schools before coming to Florence Elementary where she served as assistant principal. Resing decided to delve into the administrative side of education to keep challenging

chronic sleep disturbance, depression, poor function in school, attention disorders, and other permanent issues requiring ongoing medical care. A concussion-related bill, KRS 160.445, was passed and enacted by the Kentucky State Legislature in 2012. The Kentucky High School Athletic Association, which governs all high school sports in the state, previously had a concussion policy in place but only at the high school level. What they were able to do with the approved bill, however, was “hard code it in the statute,” said KHSAA Commissioner Julian Tackett. Tackett said the legislation also includes a provision that anytime during a game if the signs and symptoms of a concussion are present coaches or officials are to send the child out of the game for medical evaluation. If a medical professional is not present, Tackett said it will be assumed a player exhibiting signs and symptoms of a concussion has a concussion. The KHSAA, in conjunction with the Kentucky Medical Association, has promoted a web site www.KyConcussions.com, to help with the issue. It has an online training program about head injuries that all the coaches in Kentucky have to take. “So we’re trying to really increase awareness among coaching staff (and) by school administrators that a concussion is serious business,” DesJardins said. Such precautions are a far cry from the playing days of University of Cincinnati orthopedist Dr. An-

gelo Colosimo – a former Bengals team doctor who was a high school and college player in his own right. Colosimo has had two sons play football for Beechwood High School. “When I played, you got drilled, you didn’t even know where you were and you went back to the huddle and carried the ball again,” Colosimo said. “It’s amazing where the science has gone when you look at the long-term damage of traumatic brain injuries. It affects you long term. The idea is to limit that. “You can’t play (football) without contact. If you play this game, you’re going to get your head dinged. It’s going to happen. What we’re trying to do is to limit the damage that’s done.” Part of the reason concussions have increased their role in the collective consciousness of the sports community is because of recent lawsuits filed against the National Football League by former players who have suffered from ailments such as dementia. In recent years, most professional leagues have also developed their own rules to further protect players, strengthening restrictions on when athletes can return to competition. “I think naturally competitive athletics, it doesn’t matter what level you’re playing, involves risk,” said Tackett. “This is the issue du jour, that maybe years ago, we didn’t do all we could, and as a result, those in their 40s are suffering. It’s constant education..”

herself. “I’ve always wanted to learn more and be the best,” she said. “I need new challenges in my life to do those things.” As principal, she said her top priority is to “give the best educational experience.” She also wants to see the school move forward with innovative ideas and expound on the programs already offered. “My third big goal is involvement,” she said. “I want the parents and community to be involved in the decision making. I want them to have a voice in our students’ education.” Resing likens being a principal to being a coach. “I’m not the No.1player on the team,” she said. “Instead, I’m the one bringing out the best in others.”

chael Poiry, 38, of Villa Hills, said he wants to tap into the school’s full potential. “I have two words to describe working in education: huge privilege,” he said. “What we get to work with is without limits – the potential is without limits.” Poiry started his career in education as a teacher. “At the end of the day, you’re here because of a desire to help a child grow,” he said. “I could go to work and build a great car. I Poiry could go to work and build a great ethical, moral and civic human being. That’s what I looked at when I chose this profession.” At Ockerman Middle he plans to continue improving upon the school’s academic performance, and community involvement and support. If he wasn’t principal, Poiry said he’d be working in agriculture, but pointed out similarities between the two fields. “I’d be doing something that gives you the ability to see the fruits of your labor – the works of your hands,” he said.

Union couple donates to EKU

Walton-Verona High School Sends Best Wishes to the class of 2013

By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

UNION — Ron Noel says that if it wasn’t for his alma mater, he wouldn’t be where he is today. A 1964 graduate of Eastern Kentucky University, time spent at the school was a “great learning experience,” he said. So he and his wife have given back to Eastern. A previous donation of more than $1 million from Noel and his wife, Sherrie Lou, who live in Union, helped EKU update its John Grant Crabbe Main Library with the Ron and Sherrie Lou Noel Studio for Academic Creativity. The couple recently donated an additional $250,000 toward the construction of a reading porch on the south side of the library. Additional private funds are being sought for the project, which is expected to total some $500,000. In a phone conversation, Noel said the library has the ability to help all students and by “expanding the library and making it more attractive.” According to an announcement from EKU, the idea for the porch, which has long been a vision of the Noels, has its roots in some of the early designs for the Noel Studio. “(The Noels) love outdoor spaces and they wanted the same for our students,” Kari Martin,

director of development for EKU libraries said in an announcement from the school. The porch would provide an outdoor study environment for students inspired by energetic, naturally lit spaces and would even offer a safe and welllit outdoor space for latenight study or visits, the release read. “Ron and Sherrie Lou Noel have proven, time and again, their commitment to our students at EKU,” Betina Gardner, dean of EKU libraries said in the announcement.

“When I express my gratitude, I speak for our students – past, present and future – who have or will benefit from the Noels’ sustained generosity. We cannot thank them enough. Donors like Ron and Sherrie Lou have such a tremendous impact on the lives of EKU students.” According to the release, Ron Noel is a retired steel industry executive and his wife is also an Eastern graduate.

Jaguars out to defend XC titles By James Weber jweber@nky.com

Cross country is always strong in Boone County. Here is a look at some local teams not previously featured:

Conner girls

Darrell Schnieders returns for his third year as head coach. Junior Anna Arnold and eighth-grader Caitlin Kahmann are the top returning runners, and the coach is excited about several new additions that should help the team. Senior Paige Thompson and junior Hannelore Rumminger are new additions and have looked good early on in practice. Junior Sarah Lucas returns to the team after not participating in 2012 and should be one of the top runners. Sophomore Brooke Harms had a good track season and should probably be the top girl on the team. “With the new additions, the team will be much improved from last year and should be in

contention to capture one of the qualifying spots for the state meet,” Schnieders said. Conner runs in the Ryle meet Aug. 31. The Conner boys team returns Nolan Gerlach, who was 10th in the state last year.

picks. Kelter is the only senior on a junior-dominated squad. Cooper is ranked fourth in 3A by KyTrackXC.com in that site’s preseason predictions. Cooper starts the year in the Ryle meet Aug. 31.

Cooper boys

Cooper girls

The Jaguars have big goals this year after finishing 11th in the 3A state meet last season. Cooper was conference and regional champions and returns its top six runners from a year ago. The Jaguars also add Mitchell Greenhalgh, a threetime state qualifier in track last spring, who joins the 3.1-mile outdoor team for the first time. The top returner is two-time defending regional champion Brady Baker, who was 21st at state a year ago. Zachary Stewart was fourth in the regional meet last year, Aaron Kelter was right behind in fifth and Connor Greenhalgh seventh. Jake Vandermosten and Stephen Russell were honorable mention all-region

The girls team is also looking for big things after qualifying for the 3A state meet in 2012. The Jaguars were 21st in the state and fourth in the region, and return five starters. They are senior Karina Egger, junior Olivia Goessling, sophomore Ashley Dragan, sophomore Erin Mogus and sophomore Gabby Prather. Dragan led the way at state last year, going 66th. Top newcomers start with seventh-graders Isabelle Armstrong and Megan Kelter. “We had great July and August workouts, put a lot of miles in,” said Pat Pidgeon, who is in his 13th season as a head coach including all six in Cooper’s existence as a school. “The girls

are ready to walk out of the regional meet with a trophy.”

Ryle girls

The Raiders were regional runner-up in Class 3A and 12th at state a year ago under head coach Jim Wihebrink, who has been at Ryle all 21 years of its existence. The Raiders have hopes for better things as they return six of their top seven, led by individual regional champ Jensen Bales, who was 43rd at state. Other starters include Cayla Robinson, Kaitlyn Bach, Caitlin Clements, Mackenzie Wren and Heidi Anderson. The top newcomer is Katelyn Nichols, who is new to cross country but was a state qualifier in the 800 meters during track season. “If we can stay healthy and avoid injuries we should be able to compete for the regional championship and be a top 10 team in the state meet,” Wihebrink said. Ryle hosts its annual Labor Day weekend meet Saturday, Aug. 30.

High standards pace TMC football By Adam Turer

NORTHERN KENTUCKY ATHLETES ON THE ROSTER

presspreps@gmail.com

Only a select few Division III football programs have reached a point where a 7-3 record and rout of their biggest rival is considered a disappointing season. Thomas More College finished 6-2 in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference, but those two early season losses prevented the Saints from earning a fifth straight playoff berth. A six-game winning streak to close out the season was encouraging, but 2012 was still a disappointment for a program that has established itself as a perennial top 25 team. “When I think about it, it is good that we have such high expectations,” said head coach Jim Hilvert. “When you set a standard like that, when you expect at least nine wins and a PAC championship, less than that is not good enough.” The silver lining to last year was that the seniors were the first class in years to end the season with a win. Consistently qualifying for the playoffs means that, unless the Saints win the 32-team tournament and Stagg Bowl championship, they end the season with a loss. Last year, the Saints got to finish the season by setting all kinds of records in a 75-6 Bridge Bowl victory over rival College of Mount St. Joseph. “Everybody was hungry to finish off the sea-

son on a high note,” said sophomore free safety Kyle Fuller (Holy Cross). Fuller is one of several young starters on both sides of the ball this year. He has learned from the upperclassmen who were once in his position and expects to step into a leadership role in just his second season at Thomas More. “The coaches do a good job of preparing you for a leadership role,” said Fuller, who led Holy Cross to a state championship two years ago. “Last year’s seniors left a legacy that made the program

what it is and they really pushed us underclassmen to make us better.” The veteran leaders of the defense will help the new starters adjust. Defensive backs Jake Fishburn (Elder) and Alex Taylor (Elder) and lineman Tyler Combs (Highlands) provide senior leadership on the otherwise young defense. “We are young on defense, but very fast,” said Hilvert. “This is one of the most athletic defenses I’ve had.” The offense is led by the return of junior running back Dominique

Hayden from injury and another year of experience for sophomore quarterback Jensen Gebhardt, who went 6-1 after taking over as the starter last year. Thomas More has always benefited from a pipeline of local talent from both sides of the river, but the recent rise of Northern Kentucky programs like Cooper and Campbell County has provided the Saints with even more talented players who are accustomed to winning. “With the talent we have around here, it’s a

Professional Growth and Effectiveness System (PGES). Kentucky, along with 36 other states, requested a Kim Delaney waiver exCOMMUNITY empting them RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST from the No Child Left Behind legislation. In exchange, states will be required to include student growth as a part of their educators’ evaluations. The Professional Growth and Effectiveness System is based on the work of Charlotte Danielson and the results of the Measures of Effective Teaching Study, conducted by the Gates Foundation. Danielson’s Framework of Teaching focuses on four areas: planning and preparation, classroom environment, instruction, and professional responsibilities. Teacher evaluations in Kentucky will also include a fifth area, student growth. The exact percentage, each of these areas will receive in an evaluation, is yet to be determined as Kentucky continues to pilot the new PGES

with limited numbers of teachers during the 2013/14 school year. This will be determined prior to statewide implementation the following year. Todd Baldwin, with the Kentucky Department of Education, states they are “going slow” to ensure they “get it right.” A shift in teacher evaluations will include numerous snapshot observations in the classroom and specific suggestions for professional growth. It may be reasonable to expect a certain level of apprehension surrounding an entirely new evaluation system. However, teachers should be relieved to discover that the areas in which they will be evaluated are areas in which they are already highly engaged in and commit considerable time and thought to in Boone County. Parents should be relieved to know that our district is well ahead in key areas of the implementation of the PGES including but not limited to administrator walk-throughs, peer reviews, teacher selfevaluation, and frequent monitoring of student progress. The Hope Street Group, a non-profit organization, whose

goal is to provide a better America, is involving its 21 Kentucky teacher fellows to elicit the opinions, concerns and ideas of Kentucky teachers regarding this new system. Hope Street, recognizing that great potential exists here, is working to facilitate dialogue throughout the commonwealth, bringing the Kentucky Department of Education, the Kentucky Education Association, legislators, and educators together to further strengthen Kentucky students’ learning. The Hope Street Group recognizes the importance of collaboration and communication between the groups. The new PGES provides an opportunity to empower teachers to further improve their students’ learning, as they continue to enhance their craft. Working cooperatively, Kentucky’s students and teachers will continue to elevate their “educational game,” ensuring that students are college and career ready. Kim Delaney is a Hope Street Group Kentucky Teacher Fellow, a first-grade Teacher at Longbranch Elementary in Union and lives in Florence.

How are you feeling about the future? All of us know the phrase, “Survey says…” used by Steve Harvey (and Richard Dawson before him) in the popular TV game show, “Family Feud.” So, let’s play Family Feud today. This will be fun, and it’s all about us. And there will be only four questions. For our survey results we will be using the 2013 survey in which the National Council on Aging, UnitedHealthcare and USA Today asked 4,000 U.S. adults, including seniors ages 60 and older, their thoughts on aging. The first question: What percentage of seniors report never exercising? Survey says: Almost 1 in 5 (18 percent) say they never exercise. The United States of Aging Survey finds that while most seniors are not worried about the status of their health today, many are not investing in activities that could help them manage their health for the long term, such as setting personal health goals or exercising. More than half (51 percent) of seniors have not set any specific goals to manage their health

in the past year, and 65 percent of seniors report having at least two chronic health conditions, such as high blood pressure, arthritis and high cho-

lesterol. Second question: What percentage of future seniors plan on using Social Security as their primary source of income? Survey says: Only 23 percent of adults age 18-59 plan to rely primarily on Social Security. According to the survey, most seniors say they are comfortable with their current financial situation, yet a majority express concern about their long-term financial security: more than half (53 percent) of seniors are concerned about whether their savings and income will be sufficient to last the rest of their life. The survey also found generational differences when it comes to retirement. Nearly half (47 percent)

Teacher fellows working to strengthen education

The commonwealth of Kentucky is known for unparalleled success on the basketball court, boasting two national NCAA basketball championships in as many years. Educators and administrators have been working hard to elevate academic success in the commonwealth to the same level, making strides to ensure that our students are effectively prepared for college and career readiness. While most of the nation has embarked upon education reform, Kentucky is at the forefront. This was evidenced Jan. 10 as Gov. Steve Beshear announced from the Capitol that the 2012 Education Week Quality Counts Report indicated that Kentucky had climbed to 10th in the nation in its annual survey of states and their education of America’s students. This was further evidenced as our district/ state implemented the new Common Core Standards two years ago, while many states are still preparing for the implementation of these national standards. A part of continued reform, Kentucky is in the process of implementing a new evaluation system referred to as the

COMMUNITY

of retired seniors currently have access to pensions, and among seniors that are not yet retired, 41 percent plan to rely on Social Security as their primary source of retirement income. The third question: What percentage of adults surveyed feel that their community is adequately prepared for the onslaught of seniors? Survey says: 41 percent of adults ages 18-59 do not believe that their community is prepared. This year’s survey finds that both seniors and younger adults think the community they live in could do more to prepare for a booming senior population. Specifically, 26 percent say their community should invest in better public transportation and 23 percent say their city or town should invest more in affordable health care services and housing. The final question: Is Northern Kentucky prepared for the onslaught of Boomers? Survey says: Oh, sorry, we haven’t done a survey. The survey above only surveyed parts of the country. But, Senior Services of Northern

Kentucky believes that the results of the national survey provide interesting insights on seniors’ evolving needs and how we can work at the community level to help prepare America’s seniors to age successfully. SSNK is focused on the needs of area seniors; we are committed to encouraging discussions and building awareness of the importance of aging preparedness in the community. We want to know what you think. As part of this ongoing discussion, Senior Services has posted on its website the national survey results. Be a part of this discussion.

The third time is the charm Recently, God placed a verse in my path three times in one day. Now that may not seem significant for some, but for me, the verse’s relevance to my current requests to God for direction gave me pause. To top that, it wasn’t a verse I was familiar with, and I came across it in three very different ways. “The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.” 2 Chronicles 16:9. Julie House During a COMMUNITY time when I RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST was questioning God’s direction for my life and a path He was calling me to take, He said to me in this verse, “If you don’t do it, I will find someone who will.” At that point, I submitted. I submitted because I long to be obedient, just as a child longs to be obedient to his parents. And I submitted because I wanted what the verse promised; to be strengthened. And I was! That step of faith and step of obedience provided me a rest in my heart, and rejuvenation for my soul that I had been searching for, for some time. “The third time’s the charm.” Well it may not be the “charm,” but I’ve been around long enough to know that when God speaks something to my heart for the third time, I’d better listen. For me, I found the answer in restlessness; yes restlessness. When I am experiencing unrest, I know God is working. Why do we get restless? We become restless because we’re ready for something new; a new job, a new haircut, etc. God allows restlessness to show us that He is ready for us to move to something new as well. Restlessness for me usually means that God has already provided the direction; He is just waiting for me to take the next step. However, each time I experienced the unrest, the direction God was calling me into, was not where I wanted or intended to go. Yet, each time, the destination was more beautiful and fulfilling than I could have ever imagined. If you struggle today with unrest, know this; God has a plan; it is a good plan; it leads to success, and not harm; and when you get there, God will be there. Take a step toward obedience today through prayer and praise to God and remember this; “Do not despise these small beginning, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin.” Zechariah 4:10.

BOBBY MACKEY’S

ILDER — Call Bobby Mackey’s hon-

A January 2009 view of the exterior of Bobby Mackey’s in Wilder, opened in 1978 inside the same building as the former Latin Quarter. FILE

ky tonk or a favorite haunt, the music inside remains traditional country the way the club’s namesake owner and singer likes. “I’m proud to call it a honky tonk,” Mackey said. Other country music performers play at Bobby Mackey’s, but at 10 p.m. each Friday and Saturday Mackey and his Big Mac Band play on stage. A 35th anniversary celebration will be Friday and Saturday, Sept. 6-7, featuring Mackey and his band. Mackey said he played at multiple clubs in the Cincinnati area prior to opening his club in 1978 inside the former Latin Quarter – which was a gambling casino up until the early 1960s. The Highland Heights resident said he bought the club in Wilder so he could play traditional country all the time. “I just wanted to be in control,” he said People who come to hear the music know what to expect – covers of George Jones, Hank Williams Sr., and Buck Owens among other country icons, Mackey said. That’s in addition to his original songs. His 1982 single “Pepsi Man” made the Billboard country chart list at No. 57. Mackey said his song “Hero Daddy” became a hit locally on Cincinnati radio stations. He released a new album Aug. 20, “Country Music Lives On” featuring the song “That Jones Boy Is Gone” – a tribute to George Jones. Mackey said he originally wrote the song as “When That Jones Boy Is Gone” a couple of years before the singer’s death in April 2013. The song is an ode to Jones with the repeating lyric “who’s going to fill his shoes.” He said this is the first album he wrote the lyrics for every song. Bass player Ernie Vaughn of Forest Park has played with Mackey since 1968. Vaughn said it is a pleasure to play with, and sometimes just listen to, each other play and sing. Vaughn and other band members typically only miss playing with Mackey three or four times a year. “It’s not a job, it’s just something that we all like to do or we wouldn’t do it,” Vaughn said. “I’m a traditional country singer, and that’s

all I’ve ever wanted to do,” he said. “And I know it works.” Mackey said he still has his mother’s Zenith radio where he heard country legends’ songs while his mother worked inside his father’s grocery store in Lewis County, Ky. “As soon as we would get there in the morning I would jump on a box and turn on that radio,” Mackey said. “I’d listen all morning to Hank Williams, Ernest Tubb and Red Foley. “When I heard Hank Williams sing at 4years-old my life was set to country music forever on,” he said. Mackey said his strategy of delivering traditional country music has worked so far, and his audiences range in ages including a younger crowd that comes for the midnight set and the mechanical bull “Turbo.” The bull has been part of Mackey’s for 34 years. His midnight set has a lot of rockabilly, but it’s still all country, he said. “That’s the young element, and the bull doesn’t sit still too much and it’s rockin’ all night long,” Mackey said. The club also has become known as a place to hunt for ghosts, something Mackey said he was initially against. He said he feared ghost stories would scare people away, and managed to keep attention away from that for 10 years. Now some people seek out the club to see if they can spot ghosts, and that’s all right too, he said. Bobby Mackey’s has been featured on multiple television shows including The Travel Channel’s “Ghost Adventures.” The club continues to be an established country music destination despite the ghost attention, he said. “It’s a throwback,” Mackey said of the club. “And if anybody used to come in there years ago and comes back in today, it would be like they basically stepped back in time. It has basically stayed the same.” And playing almost every weekend never gets old to him, and he has no plans of stopping. “We went through the urban cowboy craze and every other craze there was,” he said. “But the way it was is still the way it is, and the beat goes on.” As other country singers opened up their own theaters in Branson, Mo., he said. “I call my night club my Branson,” he said. “I don’t have to go running across the country. I play here in Wilder and people come to me.”

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In an 8-inch square or 2-quart baking dish, melt butter in oven. Carefully remove and set aside. Whisk flour, baking powder and sugar together. Add milk and stir until just combined. Pour batter into melted butter but don’t stir. Add cherries. Bake 30-40 minutes or until cake portion is golden and berries exude juices.

7-Up Cake: For clarification on Diane Byrne’s recipe that I published, the pudding is one 1 oz. box. It is a package contain four servings. Check out my blog for more recipes. Cherry bounce: How much bourbon? Enough to cover the cherries by an inch or so. Some readers use vodka, rum or grain alcohol. The container should be glass, since it’s not airpermeable, with a tight lid. Canning jars work well. A reader wants to use a sugar substitute. I suggested Splenda, but have not tried it.

Poor man’s lobster: I didn’t catch the reader’s name, but she is craving this dish. “It’s made with codfish that you cook in water seasoned with perhaps butter, salt and other ingredients. After it’s cooked, you serve with drawn butter. I would love to have a recipe similar to the one I lost.” Twin Trolley’s BBQ: For Carol E., who loved the sandwich of this now-closed and, I might add, much-loved restaurant. If you have a similar recipe, please share. Manyet’s Bakery cheesecake: Another request from this popular bakery, which was in Newport and now closed. For Pat B. “They had a cheesecake like no other I have ever had that was really great. If in any way you can find that recipe, I would surely appreciate it!”

Cleaning out the freezer is never an easy task. I don’t know how I accumulate so much food in there! I ran across a container of sour pie cherries the other day from last year and knew I had to do something with them, and fast. So I made this cherry cobbler. This is really delicious eaten warm with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream and perfect for that Labor Day gathering.

Protect yourself against check theft Do you know the best way to protect yourself when receiving a large check? One woman says she wishes she knew because her check was stolen and cashed months ago – and she’s been unable to recover the money. Earlier this year,

Heather Weismann of Delhi Township got a cash advance for more than $500. But before she could cash it, the check was stolen from her parked car. “When I got back to my car it was missing. So I called the place that wrote the check to see if it was

cashed. The next day it was cashed and it wasn’t even signed by me,” Weismann said. Weismann got a copy of the check and found although she had not signed the back of it, someone else forged her signature before getting it cashed. “They forged

A spokesman for the bank agrees this appears to be theft. The bank has turned over its findings to the Cincinnati Police Department.

Dinsmore restorations are almost complete By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

BURLINGTON — Restoration of the exterior of the historic Dinsmore Homestead will soon be complete. Workers are now scraping the lead paint from the exterior and will repaint the house as part of work the site has undertaken this summer. Thanks to $150,000 from a private donor the home’s 75-year-old asbestos roof has also been replaced, the chimneys and railing above the porch have been rebuilt, the windows re-glazed and siding replaced. The project is “on budget and on schedule,” said executive director Marty McDonald, Located in rural Boone County, the homestead is a unique historic site where visitors can learn what rural life was like in the 19th

project.” That evening will also be a celebration of Dinsmore having been open to the public as a museum for 25 years, said McDonald.

National recording group Russell Moore and IIIrd Tyme Out will bring their contemporary bluegrass sound to Turfway Park on Saturday, Nov. 9, adding a fifth concert to the American Roots: Bluegrass at Turfway Park series. The bluegrass extravaganza series at Turfway is hosted by Cincinnati radio station WOBO (FM 88.7) and sponsored by Miller Lite. Fronted by Moore, IIIrd Tyme Out has performed together more than 20 years, and the group or individual band members have earned more than 50 industry awards. The band’s latest album, “Timeless Hits of the Past ... Bluegrassed,” was released by the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store exclusive music program in January and spent three weeks atop the Billboard Top Current Bluegrass Albums chart. Moore’s big break came when he joined Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver as a guitar sideman in the mid-1980s. The American Roots: Bluegrass at Turfway Park series began July 27 with regional bands. The remaining concerts feature much-honored national bands. Bobby Osborne and the Rocky Top X-press take the stage Sept. 20. Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver headline the Oct. 4 show.

Watermelon a healthy, late-summer treat Fresh watermelon is a wonderful treat. Think of the crisp texture and those wonderful sweet juices running down your arm as you bite into the tasty treat. Watermelon is a healthy addition to any diet. A two-thirds cup serving has about 92 calories. It is a great source of vitamin C, vitamin A and potassium. Potassium is important for many functions in our bodies, but it is crucial for heart and other muscle function. Watermelon is also a very good source of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants help keep the cells of our bodies healthy. Lycopene has been shown to help reduce the risk of some types of cancers. Locally grown watermelons are available through September.

Powdery mildew attacking garden phlox Question: I have some phlox flowers that bloom every year, but the leaves get covered with some kind of white, powdery substance. The plants seem to be getting weaker and smaller each year, with fewer flowers. Is this a disease? How can I stop it? Answer: The white powder is caused by powdery mildew fungus. You apparently have one of the more susceptible varieties of phlox. Fungicides need to be applied early in the season to prevent this disease. Phlox is a favorite perennial for Kentucky gardens, but is often dis-

Under our warm, humid growing conditions in Kentucky, powdery mildew can be quite severe on susceptible Phlox. Kentucky gardeners will want to plant powdery mildew-resistant cultivars. Phlox disease evaluations were recently completed. The following cultivars were evaluated for powdery mildew resistance. Even highly resistant cultivars (listed below) are still not immune to powdery mildew, so expect to see a little disease should those be chosen for the garden. Susceptible cultivars would need to be sprayed

regularly with fungicides to keep them looking good. Highly resistant phlox varieties include: ‘Blue Boy,’ ‘Darwin’s Joyce,’ ‘David,’ ‘Delta Snow,’ ‘Eden’s Crush,’ ‘Natascha,’ Phlox caroliniana, ‘Red Magic,’ ‘Robert Poore,’ and ‘Speed Limit 45.’ Moderately resistantmoderately susceptible: ‘Bright Eyes,’ ‘Eva Cullum,’ ‘Fairest One,’ ‘Flamingo,’ ‘Laura,’ ‘Magnificence,’ ‘Miss Ellie,’ ‘Miss Jo-Ellen,’ ‘Miss Katherine,’ ‘Miss Kelly,’ ‘Nicky,’ ‘Nora Leigh,’ ‘Orange Perfection,’ ‘Pink Gown,’ ‘Prime Minister,’ ‘Red

Ky. Symphony wraps summer series at Devou By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

COVINGTON — It’s a new take on clowning around as the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra joins forces with Ludlow-based Circus Mojo for Cirque Devou Deux, the grand finale the KSO’s summer concert series. The performance is 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 31, at Devou Park Amphitheater in Covington. According to an announcement from the orchestra, director Aaron Easterbrooks leads an international contingent of circus performers from

NOTICE Please take notice that Duke Energy Kentucky, Inc. has applied to the Kentucky Public Service Commission for approval to revise its Demand Side Management (DSM) rate for electric service and gas service for residential and commercial customers and add new products for its DSM program available to customers. Duke Energy Kentucky’s current monthly DSM rate for residential gas customers is ($0.039396) per hundred cubic feet (ccf) and for non-residential gas customers is $0.000000 per hundred cubic feet. 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.
