FLORENCE — A chance encounter between a shopper and a sales associate will benefit the women at Brighton Recovery Center for Women. Lisa Ball, who owns the Florence-based Velocity Bike and Bean with her husband, said she was shopping at the Crestview Hills Dillard’s when she met Priscilla Shanks, a certified fitter in the store’s lingerie department – who pointed out the bra clearance rack. “While I was browsing the selection and remarking at the incredible prices, Priscilla said, ‘If I could, I would buy all of these and donate them to a local homeless shelter,’” Ball recounts. “At that point, a light bulb went off in my head.” Having worked in the past with Brighton Center, Ball says she couldn’t believe she didn’t think of the idea on her own. That’s when she told Shanks about the Brighton Recovery Center for Women in Florence and that she thought the facility would appreciate having new undergarments. “With Breast Cancer Awareness month coming up, I saw a wonderful, and extremely affordable, opportunity to do my part,” Ball said.

TANK coming to Florence hub soon

Collection time

By Melissa Stewart

FLORENCE — Service to the new Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky (TANK) hub at Mall Road and Heights Boulevard is set to begin Saturday, Nov. 2. Mayor Diane Whalen said the city is excited about the opening. “This is something we’ve waited for a long time and it’s going to make everything more accessible to residents of Boone County,” she said.

The Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky hub at Heights Boulevard and Mall Road in Florence is set to open for service Saturday, Nov. 2. MELISSA STEWART/THE COMMUNITY RECORDER

According to TANK spokeswoman Gina Douthat, the hub will begin offering service to downtown Cincinnati Monday, Nov. 4, via a new bus route, the No. 42X . “TANK will offer free rides on the No. 42X for the first week of service to encourage people to try it,” she said.

As Shanks helped her ring up “armfuls of bras,” Shanks mentioned she had Dillard’s gift cards of her own that she wanted to donate toward the purchase. “I walked out of the store with 50 bras,” Ball said. “The receipt ended up being as tall as Priscilla and the bag about as wide as me. “We exchanged email addresses, hugged and remarked at how we both felt we were destined to

meet that evening,” she said. Ball later asked Shanks if she would be interested in going with her to the center to do professional fittings for the women there and giving them each a new bra. Shanks was interested. But Ball went farther with her philanthropy – she started Velocity Bike and Bean’s Cups of Kindness campaign. For a $5 donation, the campaign will provide a brand new bra and professional fitting to each woman at the center. Those who donate will be entered into a draw-

them, I’m 100 percent behind it,” said center director Anita Prater. Ball said it’s likely they’ll have to go back for additional undergarments because those on the clearance rack “were in rather odd sizes,” but the center will get all of the bras. According to Ball, they now have a total of 75 bras to donate. Since the undergarments have already been paid for, proceeds from the initiative will go to a woman at the center undergoing breast cancer treatment, she said. Donations can be made through the end of October by visiting Velocity at 7560 Burlington Pike, Florence, or online at

the way to Covington and downtown Cincinnati to make a transfer,” Douthat said. “This change will be a time-saver for people, particularly as we begin to bring more and more routes into the hub.” The Florence hub was a project that came out of the 2007 Transit Network Study. According to Douthat, the city is a growing transit market for TANK and the Florence Mall and surrounding area is one of the most popular destinations for service. “We wanted a location that had close proximity to the Florence Mall and easy interstate access,” she said. “The location on Heights Boulevard was an ideal choice.” The Florence hub is the second of four transit hubs that TANK is constructing in Northern Kentucky as part of a recommendation from the 2007 study. The first hub is in Fort Wright near TANK’s main garage on Madison Pike. The next hub will be located at Northern Kentucky University. “We are working with NKU at this time to determine the right location on campus and right amenities for a campus hub,” Douthat said. “The hub at NKU will look different than our other hubs to date – there will not be a park and ride associated with it, but it will likely have different amenities that would be appealing to the university student market.” The final hub will be in the vicinity of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. The exact location has not been determined, Douthat said. Want to continue the conversation? Tweet @MStewartReports

Artist makes big move to open Hebron gallery By Stephanie Salmons

HEBRON — Sunshine streams through Brenda Abdoyan’s light and airy – and just recently opened – Petersburg Road art studio and gallery on a bright October morning. New to Northern Kentucky, Abdoyan, who describes herself as eclectic mixed media artist, has opened The Art Studio by Bajidoo, a gallery, studio and gift shop in Hebron, where she’ll displays and sells creations of Kentucky artists and will offer a variety of classes. A grand opening is planned 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, at the shop, 1892 Petersburg Road, Hebron. Parking is available behind the building. The opening will feature drawings for three baskets featuring supplies, free classes and original art or prints. Abdoyan, who works in a number of mediums including henna, most recently hails from San Francisco, but “my honest answer to where I’m from is pretty much nowhere.” A self-described “Navy brat,” Abdoyan was born in Japan and, as a result moved around – a lot. “So we were everywhere and I liked that,” she said. “I had no problem with that because I was the weirdo at school because I was drawing all the time.” Abdoyan said she didn’t mind relocating because if she didn’t make friends at one place, there was always the chance for that to happen in a new place. “And it didn’t really happen and that turned into lots and lots of drawing and that formed my confidence in my art,” she said. “So the right things happen for the right reasons even though they seem weird at the time.” It was because of Hebron decorative artist Karen Marshall that Abdoyan, who now lives in Hebron herself, landed in Kentucky for the second time in her life. The two became acquainted when Marshall contacted Abdoyan about the bangle bracelets she makes. After talking for a while, Marshall volunteered to help Abdoyan at a 2010 trade show near Chicago.

You make small choices every day.

Now Abdoyan “is like a daughter to me,” she said. “I was going to open a studio, no doubt about it. That’s what I was going to do,” Abdoyan said. It was something she’s wanted to do for years because she wanted to teach. She was discussing the studio with Marshall while living in San Francisco, “just an incredibly expensive place to be.” Abdoyan knew if she did this, she wouldn’t be able to do it there. It was a “make or break thing,” Abdoyan said. “So I decided if I was going to bet on me, I was going to do all or nothing,” said Abdoyan, who had previously been a business analyst. “So I took what I had in my retirement and said if this is really what I’m supposed to do, it’ll be evident one way or another. “It’ll be the first day of the awesome life I always wanted or it will be the first day of the life I actually got,” she laughed. “And I’ll find out when I do it because I wasn’t going to stand down and say ‘I wish I would have’ or ‘what if.’ That would just be the worst thing I could have possibly done.” “And of course, I kept trying to steer her towards Kentucky,” Marshall said. “Because I kept saying, ‘you know, if you came here, I could help you as long as the Lord is willing.’” Abdoyan visited the area this summer. Near the end of her visit, Abdoyan and Marshall happened upon her future studio space. Peeking in the windows, Abdoyan said “I went ‘oh my god, that’s the place,’ because of the light, the windows, the location, the parking.” With the post office, McDonald’s and Kroger all nearby, “I figure even if they don’t think about it, they’ll stumble into me eventually.” Before she got on the plane, she had made a deal for the studio and paid three months rent in advance to make sure she would have it. More information about the Art Studio by Bajidoo can be found on the gallery’s Facebook page or online at

NDA’s ‘Madame’ Greife lauded as excellent teacher

Delivering top – notch care with advanced technology

By Chris Mayhew

PARK HILLS — Speaking French sounded pretty to Mary Ann Greife, and for 40 years she has been spreading her passion for language as a teacher at Notre Dame Academy. Greife, a resident of Park Hills, is a recipient of the 2013 Thomas More College Excellence in Teaching award. Language was a subject Greife said she excelled in when she was a student at Nazareth Academy, a Catholic high school in LaGrange Park, Ill. “I took four years of Latin, but then ended up taking two years of French just because I thought it sounded pretty, and I was right. It does.” Greife said she continues to love France and French culture. “Truly, that’s one of the things as a high school

sons she likes teaching a language is because people, including teens, have a tendency to insulate themselves with the world they see around them. “Which is one of the nice things about teaching a language,” she said. “It opens new viewpoints and perspectives to students. It’s a whole different culture.” Senior Ana Calvopina of Florence, who has studied with Greife for four years and traveled with her teacher to France with a group of students, said Greife is passionate about teaching. “She’s always open to help others and very available,” she said. “She makes you want to come to class.”

teacher you get to share your passion with your students, and I truly do enjoy that,” she said. Greife said in many cases students come from grade schools offering Spanish. Freshmen say they want to take a different language, and other say they think French is pretty and want to eventually go to Paris. Other students say they take French because they are interested in the arts. The number of students taking French drops by the time they are ready to take a fourth year, she said. This year’s fourth-year French class has nine students, but there have been as many as 25 students in past years, Greife said. She said one of the rea-

Jones school program helps improve discipline

R.A. Jones Middle School sixth-grader students follow teacher Susan Clark during a tour of the school, part of the Jump Start program. The program familiarizes students entering middle school with teachers, and building and school procedures.FILE PHOTO

Since its implementation, Rust said the culture of R.A. Jones has changed dramatically. “We’ve cut the number of office referrals,” he said. “The first year we av-

data analysis. “In order to effectively and efficiently implement PBIS, school teams of administrators, teachers and support staff commit to a change process, training, developing and revising action plans based on data,” Bryant said. “In addition schools teach, re-teach and re-teach the expectations so they become an integral part of the ongoing school culture.” The process begins with establishment of schoolwide expectations such as be safe, be respectful and be responsible. However, each school’s approach is different and based on student needs. R.A. Jones, for example, started with laying the ground rules for movement within the building, and entering and exiting the building. Rust said students are given specific directions on how to move in the hallways. This minimizes student crowding and bumpiness, therefore minimizing unintentional conflict,

he said. More importantly, he said PBIS has allowed schools to “formally and deliberately help kids understand what respect is.” Over the last few years R.A. Jones has added a mentor program to help students with goal setting, an acclimation program for mid-year students to get them up to speed on behavioral expectations, and a “check in and check out” program. The check-in and check-out program is for

more at-risk students, about 3 percent to 5 percent of the student body. “We have a pool of adults in the building, each one assigned to one of these kids,” Rust said. “The adult checks in with them in the morning to see how they’re doing. They’re a personal mentor who helps them throughout the day. And they touch base with them at the end of the day. If these students have an issue, then they have someone they can talk to.”

FLORENCE — R.A. Jones Middle School is a much different place than when Principal David Rust first started walking its halls six years ago. “When I started in 2007, we had a lot of disciplinary issues,” Rust said. The problem, according to Rust, was a lack of “common” structure. “The students we serve come from all different backgrounds,” he said. The student population at R.A. Jones represents a wide variety of socioeconomic statuses and about 20 different nationalities. “A lot of our kids come from single parent homes, they’re homeless or they’re in transient – they’ve got a lot to deal with and don’t have a common structure that most have. They need structure and to learn how to act appropriately.” The solution, according to Rust, has been Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), an implementation framework that is designed to enhance academic and social behavior outcomes for all students.

eraged 12 referrals per day per month. Last year we averaged eight, this (September) we averaged six.” Rust said the behaviors now referred to the office Bryant are those that are significantly less belligerent than in previous years. PBIS was piloted in Boone County Schools five years ago. R.A. Jones was one of the first schools to Rust implement the program. All schools in Boone County are now implementing PBIS to varying degrees, said Kathy Reutman Bryant, executive director of student and community services. “PBIS has decreased office discipline referrals, increased instructional time, decreased administrative time spent on discipline issues, increased school safety and improved positive school culture and climate,” she said. According to Bryant, full implementation of PBIS takes three to five years to accomplish, which includes ongoing training, assessment and

Heritage golfer proud to represent school at state By James Weber

Taylor Schwarz had enjoyed playing soccer her entire life. When a bad case of asthma struck her early on in her high school career at Heritage Academy, Schwarz made the difficult decision to abandon her favorite sport and move on to something else. With golf also being a fall sport, the Heritage senior decided to give it a try. Flash forward to 2013, and Schwarz is someone making history at the school. The senior and Florence resident competed in the KHSAA state golf tournament Oct. 11. Although she didn’t qualify for the second round in the two-day tournament, she is in the books as the first Heritage golfer to qualify for the tourney. “It was surreal,” she said. “I never have been in a tournament with that many people. There are more people in that tournament than go to my school. I met some very nice people and I made some friends. It was really cool. To everyone at the school, it was a really big deal. It was really FLORENCE

mind-blowing to be there.” Schwarz took a liking to golf right away during her freshman year. Golf is a sport that needs a lot of practice time to become good, and she

became determined to achieve that. “I needed to play something in this part of the season and I really liked it,” she said. “I practice a lot and I really liked it. I told my dad my sophomore year that I just didn’t want to be good at something, I wanted to be great at it. I want people to see that I really worked hard.” Heritage, with a tiny student population including nine members of Schwarz’s Class of 2014, doesn’t have a girls golf team, but Schwarz was allowed to compete with the boys team. When the girls KHSAA regional came along, though, Schwarz was all on her own except for her supporters. “It’s a challenge every single time,” she said. “It’s not like any other sports because you don’t have a team to fall back on. It was more than just me falling back. I had to play my game in tournaments to get places.” Schwarz is a returning veteran on the Eagles basketball team, which was slated to start practice this week.

Playoff seeds at stake for football teams By James Weber

Things are simpler than normal in Northern Kentucky as the district races reach their final weeks. Here is a look at the playoff picture as all districts will play their final seeding games this weekend: Class 1A, District 4: Beechwood 5-3 (2-0), Bellevue 4-5 (1-1), Ludlow 3-5 (1-1), Dayton 2-6 (0-2). Ludlow plays at Beechwood and Bellevue at Dayton. Beechwood wins the district if it beats the Panthers as expected. A massive Ludlow upset gives the Panthers the title unless Bellevue wins as well, then it would be a three-way tie at the top. A Dayton win over Bellevue likely creates a three-way tie for second, with Bellevue likely to get the two seed if that happens though it would come down to next week’s games. Class 2A, District 5: Gallatin County 6-2 (3-0), Walton-Verona 7-2 (3-1), Carroll County 3-5 (1-2), Owen County 2-7 (1-2), Trimble County 0-8 (0-3). Walton has already lost to Gallatin so Gallatin has the tieSee SEEDS, Page A9

St. Henry girls win home invitational

The St. Henry Invitational cross country meet was Oct. 12, 2013 at Idlewild Park in Burlington. The top four boys teams were Bishop Brossart, Conner, St. Henry and Campbell County. In boys, St. Henry sophomore Josh Hannon was seventh and Conner’s Nick Baumann ninth. The top four girls teams were St. Henry, Sacred Heart, Highlands and Cooper. St. Henry junior Sam Hentz was third in the girls race, teammate Renee Svec seventh and Cooper’s Erin Mogus eighth. Here are some pictures of local runners. Teams are preparing for the regional meets Nov. 2.

Newport winner. Newport and Lloyd play off for the two seed, with the loser claiming the three. Holy Cross will be the four seed even if it pulls off the big upset of NewCath. Brossart is out of the playoffs. Class 4A, District 7: Highlands 8-0 (3-0), Covington Catholic 6-2 (1-1), Holmes 5-3 (1-1), Harrison County 2-7 (0-3). Holmes plays at Cov Cath Saturday in a playoff game for the two seed and first-round home game. Highlands has won the title. Class 5A, District 5: South Oldham 6-3 (4-0), Scott 7-1 (2-1), Conner 6-2 (2-1), Cooper 2-6 (0-3), Grant County 1-7 (0-3).

The highly competitive districts has simple scenarios. South Oldham has won the title. The Scott goes to Hebron to take on Conner, with the winner taking the two seed and first-round home game, and the loser the three. Cooper travels to Grant County in a winner-takeall game for the fourth playoff spot. The loser will not make the playoffs. Class 6A, District 6: Simon Kenton 9-0 (4-0), Campbell County 5-3 (2-1), Dixie Heights 5-3 (1-2), Ryle 2-7 (1-2), Boone County 0-8 (0-3). SK has won the district title. Ryle plays at Dixie Heights and Campbell

goes to Boone. Campbell has clinched the two seed even with an upset loss at Boone because the Camels have head-to-head over the Dixie/Ryle winner. The Colonels and Raiders are playing off for the three seed, with the loser claiming fourth. Boone will be fifth even with a win because of head-to-head with the Dixie/Ryle loser. District 6 is paired with District 3 in Louisville this year. Boone will be placed in the District 2 bracket by KHSAA rule and will go to western Kentucky for its first game.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Easterling sets good example

Recently, I was in Judge (Kenneth) Easterling’s courtroom. I was so impressed that I felt compelled to share. When he was confronted with a person who repeated acts all over areas, Judge Easterling shamed judges in Hamilton County, Boone County and Frankfort for not doing their duty (mentioning it was all about money). Judge Easterling made

it clear in his courtroom he will deal with this to make each person accountable for their actions. With all the violence around us and around our country, I would hope all judges will take heed and maybe we will have a safer environment for law-abiding citizens. Our young people are growing up in a violent world. We need to change this so they can be law-abiding citizens. Barbara Briede


Girl scouts clean up community

Girl Scout Troop 116 of Walton-Verona recently had a “Clean Our Community” Day. We spent the morning cleaning the Walton area and organized a picnic for the girls afterward to celebrate a job well-done and to talk about what we can do to keep our community clean. While doing the cleanup,

some of the interesting things we found were empty liquor bottles, cigarette butts, soda cups, take-out containers, baby wipes, a full diaper, garage opener and a hoodie. This year we were fortunate not to find any drug paraphernalia on our cleanup – which we were thankful for. When we got back, I asked some of the girls what they thought about litter and having to clean up after other people. They said that even though they enjoyed being with their friends

picking up the trash that day, they didn’t understand why people continue to litter when so many people are worried about the environment these days. Their goal is to make everyone aware of how important it is to throw away their trash instead of throwing down their trash, and to make sure they make a conscious effort to use trash receptacles for their trash as well.

Hunting tradition caries through family

It’s that time of year. Deer hunting season in Kentucky. Many folks don’t know it but Northern Kentucky is known for some of the best trophy whitetail hunting in the state. In fact, Boone County has more deer per square mile than any other county in the state, according to the Department of Fish and Wildlife. That abundant wildlife supports our long-standing, rich hunting traditions, including youth hunts. Each year, the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife sponsors a youth hunt weekend. The purpose is to introduce young people to our hunting heritage and I always enjoy hearing the stories from parents and grandparents of introducing young Kentuckians to this tradition. I have to say I heard the best story yet this year. I was down at Shakey’s Pub and Grub in Florence for happy hour the Monday after youth hunt when I ran into my friend Boone County attorney Bill Robinson. Bill is the immediate past president of the National Bar Association and is known as one of the most skilled and well-connected lawyers in the area. However, it wasn’t the law Bill had on his mind. He told me about spending the youth hunt weekend with

his 12-year-old granddaughter, Brooke. Face filled with pride, he explained to me that Brooke, daughter of his son Taylor and daughter-in-law Jennifer, is a freshman at the prestigious Covington Latin School. While he was proud of her academics, John Schickel he was sharing COMMUNITY with me his RECORDER GUEST COLUMNIST pride in her hunting ability. For the youth hunt weekend, three generations of Robinsons – Bill, Tay and Brooke –hunted a farm he and Northern Kentuckian Bob Wallace owns in Grant County. Bill spent Saturday night sleeping in the back of his Toyota Sequoia. And after an unsuccessful morning hunt, I’m sure he questioned whether it was worth it. But just as the sun was setting Sunday evening, the pay off came. Bill described two large does that appeared in front of the ground blind he and Brooke had been hunting from. Brooke lifted her .270 rifle, took aim and fired a perfect shot, immediately felling the largest doe. Grandpa Bill was happy with second place, killing the second deer with his crossbow. Bill told me that wasn’t Brooke’s first deer. She had also harvested a doe the previ-

ous morning with her father. The Robinsons will have plenty of venison for the winter. Deer hunting is a reminder to many Kentuckians of how fortunate we are to live in a state with such splendid beauty and abundant wildlife. Kentucky enjoys a long tradition of hunting, when memories like those made by the Robinson family will endure. Nov. 9 is the start of modern gun deer hunting season in Boone County, as well as other counties in the northern part of the state. It lasts until Nov. 24. Late muzzleloader season lasts from Dec. 14-22. As always, hunters are required to wear orange hats and vests and should review the state’s hunter education requirements.

That just burns me up I giggled the other day as I remembered a phrase my mom used while we were growing up, to let us know she was really mad about something: “That just burns me up!” Although I laughed as I reminisced with my children, I also remembered that when my mother did use that phrase she was serious. It meant that someone or something had pushed her to her breaking point and things were going to change. Later in that same week I heard a testimony from a young man that caused me to think of my mom’s phrase in a whole new way. The man stated that God had worked in him so powerfully and used traumatic circumstances in his life to “burn off the things that are not of Him (God), and refine him.” In other words, God “burned him up!” But what about that word “refining;” knowing that the bible speaks of God refining us as “silver is refined,” I became curious. (It must have some significance; it is used in some tense seven


times in the bible.) The online Miriam-Webster Dictionary defines refine as “removing an unwanted substance in something; or to improve something by making small

changes.” Notice that refining is also a verb. In other words, it’s an action word, and if you’ve ever been refined, you’ve felt the burn. The beauty in the process of refinement is that we all come out shining like a precious stone. Each time the word “refining” is used in the bible it is associated with rich gems like silver and gold. Gems that are not destroyed in a fire, just perfected. In Psalm 66:10, 12 the Psalmist is praising God for his awesome works, stating “For you, O God, have tested us; you have refined us as silver is refined ... we went through the fire and through



A publication of

water; but you brought us to rich fulfillment.” The bible also tells us that through the process of refinement we will come to know Christ more fully and intimately (which happens to be his most important goal for our lives.) “I will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on my name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘This is my people;’ and each one will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’” (Zechariah 13:9) If you are in the middle of your fiery trial at this moment, may you find hope, knowing completely, that through the fire, you are perfected; the unwanted will be removed and you will be left as precious as silver and gold walking more closed than you ever have with your Savior. Or in the words of my mother, let it “burn you up!” Julie House is founder of Equipped Ministries, a Christian-based health and wellness program. She can be reached at 802-8965 or on

David Armstrong wants to work with community

By Amy Scalf

CRESTVIEW HILLS — Thomas More College’s new president says the institution is “open for business.” David Armstrong has been reaching out to the community since he stepped into his new role July 1 as the school’s 14th president. He was formally installed Oct. 18. “It’s a priority for us to look for partnerships for the mutual benefit of both Thomas More and business entities,” said Armstrong. Besides his personal meetings with business leaders, Armstrong greeted them en masse at an Eggs ‘N Issues informational breakfast meeting with the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce on Oct. 15. “Every business leader I’ve met with, I’ve asked, ‘What can Thomas More do for you,’” he said. “Sometimes that’s a little surprise for them. They think I’m going to ask for something, but I’d much rather find out how we can help then first. We can provide great services to all our constituencies, especially other economic drivers in this region.” Crestview Hills Mayor Paul Meier said he’d like to see the college become more involved with the business park adjacent to campus. “Thomas More’s ties to the business community could be strengthened,” said Meier. “We’ve always had a good relationship with the college, but I agree with President Armstrong that it’s something that needs to be strengthened.” Armstrong said he’s working with

nearby businesses, including St. Elizabeth Healthcare, to see how they can help each other. “Whether it’s internships or coops for students, or the expertise of our faculty, or just a place to meet and get great food or have an event,

we can do all of those things,” said Armstrong. “Thomas More is a huge asset to the community,” said State Sen.

Chris McDaniel, R-Taylor Mill. “Better than one-third of college graduates in the state come out of private schools, but they account for less than 5 percent of our higher education budget. Private colleges are doing a great job, and at Thomas More, 80 percent of their graduates stay in our area. It really is a great local university and a real community resource.” Armstrong said Thomas More’s graduates become community and business leaders. “We are the producers of excellent talent for openings, job creation and entrepreneurship,” he said. “That’s what we do. We produce graduates through a rigorous academic program who are equipped with the skill set to engage the world with integrity for their whole lives. They leave here with a values-based liberal arts education, and they have the integrity to make the right decisions when tough times come.” Although he said other institutions of higher learning are bigger and have more students, Thomas More “has been here for almost 100 years. It’s always been here and always produced great graduates.” “So many times, graduates have told me how Thomas More transformed their lives, and these people are going out and transforming the world,” said Armstrong. “As a business leader, I don’t think you can ask for anything more than a transformative leader.”

Deb Goulding’s bourbon bacon caramel popcorn I promised you this recipe and you’ll be glad I did. Deb, executive chef at the Price Hill Kroger, was a guest on my cable show. She made her now-famous bourbon bacon caramel popcorn. Definitely an adult snack for Halloween! For my traditional caramel corn recipe, check out my blog. 3 strips applewood smoked bacon 1 3 oz. bag popcorn, plain (popped) 1 ⁄2 cup butter, unsalted 1 cup dark brown sugar 1 ⁄4 cup maple syrup 1 ⁄3 cup bourbon 2 tablespoons vanilla extract 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄4 teaspoon baking soda

Heat oven to 250 degrees. Fry bacon and set aside on papered tray to cool. Spread popcorn on papered tray and crumble bacon over top. In medium saucepan, add butter, brown sugar and maple

peanuts or favorite salted nuts, coarsely chopped 4 cups coarsely chopped salted pretzels Caramel2 cups sugar 1 ⁄2 cup water 2 ⁄3 cup whipping cream 2 cups mini marshmallows

Spray a 9-inch by 13-inch baking dish. Mix together popcorn, peanuts and pretzels. Put sugar and water in a nonstick or heavy medium saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Boil, without stirring, until mixture looks amber colored, about 8-12 minutes. Remove from heat and slowly whisk in heavy cream. Be careful cream will sputter. Stir in marshmallows until melted. Using sprayed spatula, pour over popcorn mixture until everything is coated. Pour into pan. Spay a piece of foil and use that to press mixture evenly. Cool and cut into bars. Store at room temperature, covered.

Halloween hash in pumpkin bowls

kids. Let them scoop the flesh and seeds out of little pumpkins. The seeds can be roasted at about 300 degrees. I like to toss them with melted butter or olive oil, shake on some garlic powder, seasoning salt or cayenne pepper. You can do whatever you want with them. Roast for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. 1 pound lean ground beef 1 cup chopped onion 1 teaspoon garlic, minced 1 cup stewed tomatoes Corn, start with 1 generous cup and go from there Chili powder, salt and pepper to taste 1 ⁄4 pound grated cheddar cheese plus extra for sprinkling on top Nachos or large Fritos for scooping

Cook beef, onion and garlic until meat is done. Add tomatoes and corn. Cover and simmer over low heat 10 minutes. Stir in cheese. Serve with nachos and more cheese.

Rita shares the recipe for Deb Goulding’s famous bourbon bacon caramel popcorn.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Keep those Jack-OLanterns plump. Mix 2 tablespoons vinegar and a teaspoon of lemon juice into 3 cups of water. Brush over carved areas. After it dries, rub carved surfaces with petroleum jelly.

Brisket follow-up from Rita’s Kitchen

The recipe for brisket called for slow cooking 9-12 hours for a 3pound brisket. I bought a new slow cooker and the brisket was done in 7 hours. So just check after around 7 hours; if it needs more cooking, then continue to cook.

E-Quick debit card can have problems Many people love to use debit cards to pay for things because they are fast and convenient. Even the state of Ohio uses such cards for child support payments. But a local woman said she ran into major problems recently when she tried to use her card. Joann Cafferky of Batavia has used an EQuick debit card from the child support bureau for several years without a problem. But she had an issue recently when she tried to withdraw money from an ATM machine. “I put my card in, entered my pin number and it said, ‘Processing, please wait.’ In less then a minute it said, ‘Can’t process

and I’m waiting on it and they’re telling me I’m going to have to wait 45 to 90 days,” Cafferky said. Cafferky said she had to borrow money from her family in order to pay her bills. In the meantime, I contacted Fifth Third Bank and the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services in Columbus, which manages the child support payment program. Fifth Third bank workers checked the ATM machine records and found there was a problem on the day in question. They then returned the money to Cafferky’s E-Quick card. A spokesman for the state of Ohio tells me Cafferky and others do not have to use a debit card in order to get their child support money. They can get a check mailed to them or, better yet, they can have their money deposited directly into their bank account. That direct deposit is something I highly recommend because it not only assures quick access to your funds, but it lets you avoid fees associated with that E-Quick card. You get one free withdrawal from the card each month, but then must pay 75 cents for each subsequent withdrawal. Cafferky said she agrees with me and will switch to direct deposit into her bank account. Howard Ain’s column appears bi-weekly in the Community Press newspapers.

Church celebrating 100 years

Crescent Springs Baptist Church will celebrate its100 year anniversary on Saturday Oct. 26.

Marksberry was the first pastor who was an accomplished carpenter who designed the church. Mr. Marks, a stone mason and others completed the foundation. The church started growing and W.A. Lily was the first to be baptized – even the church did not have a roof at the time. When the church was completed services were held on bare wooden floors with wood benches and no backs. 1967 brought an expansion to the church which represents the current structure today where unapologetic preaching of God’s word continues.

and the tiny larvae crawl out from the end of the bag in search of food. By using silk and bits of plant material, they soon construct a small bag around their hind part that looks like a tiny, upright ice cream cone. As the larvae continue to feed and grow, they enlarge the bag enabling them to withdraw into it when disturbed. Older larvae strip evergreens of their needles and consume whole leaves of

Very young larvae may spin strands of silk and be carried fairly long distances by wind. Larger larvae may move short distances by crawling.
