They’re all around. In everycounty, in every community —in your own backyard. They arethe hungry.

“The need in our area isgreat,” Becky Ewing, executivedirector of United Ministriessaid. “Many of the families wesee are working minimumwage jobs or they are elderly.Many receive SNAP assistance,formerly known as foodstamps. However, the amount isnot enough to meet their needs.Many people count on us in or-der to have enough to eat for themonth.”

United Ministries, located at525 Graves Ave. in Erlanger,works to address these needs inKenton and Boone counties.

According to the Map theMeal Gap 2015 report, by Feed-ing America, Kenton County'soverall rate of food insecurityis 14.2 percent. That’s about22,920 individuals. The U.S. De-partment of Agriculture de-fines food insecurity as limitedor uncertain ability to providenutritious meals. In BooneCounty, 11.8 percent of the pop-

ulation or 14,280 individualssuffer from food insecurity.

United Ministries distrib-utes 342,000 pounds of food an-nually to hungry neighbors, theequivalent of 285,000 meals.

Ewing said the pantry is a“grassroots organization” de-pendent on volunteers and do-nations. One major fundraisingeffort the group counts on eachyear is the Freestore Food-bank’s Hunger Walk & 5K Run,Ewing said. The Foodbank hasorganized the event the last 12years. The walk and run givespartner agencies like UnitedMinistries the opportunity toraise funds to fight hunger.

This year’s event kicks off 9a.m. Monday, May 25, at Yeat-man’s Cove in Cincinnati. Call513-482-7546.

“The Hunger Walk is a won-derful opportunity for agen-cies, especially small ones like

ours, to raise much neededfunds,” Ewing said. “The Frees-tore does all the preparationand runs the event. We benefitfrom the hard work done by theFreestore staff and volun-teers.”

United Ministries has a goalto raise $5,000 through the Hun-ger Walk this year, the equiva-lent of 15,000 meals.

Based in southern CampbellCounty, CARE Mission has thegoal to raise $2,500 through thewalk and run. That’s the equvie-lant of 7,500 meals. In CampbellCounty, 13.9 percent of the pop-ulation, or 12,610 people, strug-gle with food insecurity.

ERLANGER — On a recentspring afternoon, the Erlangerhome of Carole and JerrySoard is bustling with laughter.In their tiny, sun-splashed din-ing room, Jerry and Carole areyucking it up with three grin-ning children gathered aroundthe table – ages 2, 3 and 6. It’shard to distinguish who’s hap-piest – the children or theadults.

Carole cuddles with theyoungest, a brown-haired littlegirl.

Jerry, 69, asks the two boys:“How was your day?”

“Good, Papa,” the 3-year-oldbelts out. The 6-year-old nodshis head in agreement.

This scene makes it hard tobelieve that things weren’t al-ways so happy – like the firstnight the children arrived atthe Soard home.

“They were scared,” Carolesaid. “They were crying. (Theoldest) was very quiet . (Theyoungest boy) cried a lot. Itwas heart-breaking.”

The children had been re-moved from their mother’s

care and placed with theSoards for fostering. The mo-ment they walked in the door,they were not foster children,but rather family, Carole said.

“It’s not hard, it’s not a bur-den,” Carole said. “You have toeat, they have to eat. You justcare for them. We get gratifi-cation from doing that. We’vebeen with this group for 20months and we love them. Welaugh everyday.”

The Kentucky Departmentof Community Based Services(DCBS) recently honored theSoards for their service, nam-ing them Foster Family of theYear in the Northern Blue-grass Service Region. The re-gion is made up of Boone, Bour-bon, Campbell, Carroll, Galla-tin, Grant, Harrison, Kenton,Nicholas, Owen, Pendleton andScott counties. The Soardshave been serving as surro-gate parents since 2007.

DCBS, part of the Cabinetfor Health and Family Ser-vices, is the state agency thatoversees the public foster caresystem.

“My dad’s family has astrong military back-ground,” she said. “Wehave several World War IIheroes and Korean Warheroes. I have an unclewho was missing in actionin the Korean War.”

Her speech, she said,will focus on the womenwho’ve made the ultimatesacrifice throughout thehistory of the U.S.

King said days like Me-morial Day are importantto have. “Our countryreally doesn’t do enoughfor our veterans,” shesaid. “Our society forgetsit’s these men and womenwho have signed a blankcheck with their lives thatgives us our freedom andthe ability to choose what-ever we want to do withour lives.”

The following is a list ofevents being heldthroughout Kenton Coun-ty.

This year marks TheYear of the Woman Veter-an.

This is a new initiativeof the Kentucky Depart-ment of Veterans Affairs.According tovetearns.ky.gov.,throughout this year ofthe woman veteran, thedepartment will spotlightKentucky’s 33,000 womenveterans with a full yearof events and outreach towomen veterans and allKentuckians.

The goal, according tothe department Commis-sioner Heather FrenchHenry, is to make surethat all veterans’ voicesare heard and that femaleveterans get access to theservices and benefits theydeserve. Only about 6 per-cent of the 33,000 femaleveterans currently use

these services and bene-fits.

The Moon BrothersAmerican Legion Lodge isbringing this effort hometo Independence by creat-ing more awareness forfemale veterans throughits Memorial Day ceremo-ny. After the parade, spon-sored in cooperation withthe city on May 25, as ev-eryone gathers at the Ken-ton County Courthousethey will be addressed byfemale Air Force veteranMichele King.

King, 51, of Independ-ence said she is delightedto speak and draw atten-tion to the many womenwho’ve served the coun-try.

“I think this is a cool op-portunity,” she said.“Women aren’t represent-ed well among veterans.Many have lost their livesand have made as much ofa sacrifice as the men whohave served. I’m not say-ing that one’s work is bet-ter over the other, just thatall deserve to be recog-nized.”

King served in the AirForce from 1981 to 1985.She spent time in Michi-gan and Korea. She joinedthe service because of herfather.

tion.“It just has the charm

of a small town parade,and we still allow people tothrow candy to kids,”Kruer said.

Fort Mitchell Garage(in Park Hills) brings anantique tow truck and oth-er restored antique carsare in the parade, she said.

An essay contest for el-ementary students is partof Memorial Day celebra-tions, Kruer said.

A flag-raising ceremo-ny at Trolley Park afterthe parade commemo-rates six residents whodied while fighting in themilitary overseas sinceWorld War II, Kruer said.A tribute to grand mar-shals Don and MissyCatchen will be part ofceremonies.

dren, and they remain incontact with most of them.

Linette Torrefranca, asocial service clinicianwith DCBS, said theSoards are “one of my fa-vorite families I workwith.”

“Their approach to par-enting is simple wherethey give and show loveand everything fits intoplace,” she said. “TheSoards have always main-tained that, “if it wasn’tfun, we wouldn’t be doingit.’”

The Soards, who werenot able to have childrenof their own, have main-tained positive relationswith the birth families of

the children they’ve caredfor, Torrefranca said.They have been known tohost large pool parties forseveral of their past fosterchildren and their fam-ilies, and have evenshared holiday time to-gether.

“The Soards are a ma-ture resource home thatcontinues to provide a funyet nurturing environ-ment especially for youngsibling groups,” she said.“They have wonderful re-lationships with the birthparents and truly hope thebest for the families.”

In Kentucky, there aremore than 2,000 DCBS-ap-proved households thatserve as foster families.However, almost 7,800children are in out-of-home care in Kentucky.DCBS Commissioner Te-

resa James said there is a“desperate need” formore people like theSoards.

“The number of chil-dren coming into our careis increasing especiallywith the drug epidemichappening,” James said.“Foster parents come intothe life of these children attheir most vulnerabletime, and they give themnothing but guidance andunconditional love. Itmakes the world a muchnicer place to have folksopen their homes andhearts.”

James said anyoneover the age of 21, with astable income, can be-come a foster parent. Formore information, shesuggests visiting The Ken-tucky Cabinet for Healthand Family Services or

calling 1-800-232-5437.DCBS is ready to educateand guide individuals onthe process, she said.

Although it can be diffi-cult when letting a childgo, whether through re-unification with the bio-logical family or adoption,Carole said she and herhusband of 39 years haveno regrets.

“Well, maybe just one,”she said. “I wish we haddone this sooner. I wishmore empty-nesters andlonely couples would dothis.”

It’s the best kind of re-tirement, Carole said.

“They keep you young.They keep you moving,”Jerry said. “They get inyour heart – all of them.”

“The CARE Missionis one of the largestfood pantries in south-ern Campbell County,”Chris Pelle, CAREboard chairman said.“We are run entirely byvolunteers. With theever-changing land-scape of our economy,CARE Mission con-tinues to serve clientsbased on their needs.The number of chil-dren who go to bedhungry is unfathom-able. We’re fightinghunger here at the mis-sion because we be-lieve it’s God’s work.The CARE Mission isblessed with amazingvolunteers and the op-portunity to serve thepeople in our commu-nity.”

Pelle said that alarge portion of that ef-fort is possible be-cause of the HungerWalk.

Freestore Food-bank president andCEO Kurt Reiber saidpartnering togetherwith local pantries isthe best way to combatfood insecurity.

“Hunger is not likecancer,” he said. “Wehave the cure. It’s nu-tritional, balancedmeals. When you hearstories about a studentwho slips mashed pota-toes off of his schoollunch tray into his sockso that he has some-thing to eat over theweekend ... that’s whyyou do what we do. Thefunds raised at thisevent all go towardthese food pantries toprovide them withmore food and capitalimprovements like ad-ditional freezers.We’ve got to work to-gether to build our ca-pacity to help others.”

Shannon Wilson, a senior atNotre Dame High School, is a2015 Simon Lazarus Jr. Awardwinner.

For 50 years, American Jew-ish Committee has honored out-standing student volunteers ofall faiths who have demonstrat-ed a passion for making ourcommunity a better place inwhich to live with the SimonLazarus Jr. Human RelationsAward.

Throughout the years, doz-ens of local public, private, andparochial high schools havenominated deserving studentsfor this prestigious award.

Shannon, a Lakeside Parkresident, has a record of givingback and spreading hope in theface of great adversity.

At the end of her freshmanyear of high school, she was di-agnosed with a brain tumor andunderwent surgery. Through-out her treatment and recovery,she continued to volunteerweekly at a local rehabilitationagency for children with dis-abilities.

Shannon also took part in ayearly walk to raise money forbrain cancer research and pa-tient education programs. Af-ter participating for two years,she took it upon herself to fun-draise and organize her ownteam for the next walk.

Her tireless efforts resultedin 250 team members and morethan $11,000 in fundraising forthe cause.

The Simon Lazarus Jr. Hu-man Relations Awards arenamed for an accomplishedleader of the American JewishCommittee. Simon Lazarus Jr.was president of the Cincinnatiregion from 1951-1953, and amember of the national Boardof Governors. The late Mr.Lazarus was a distinguishedCincinnati attorney. He alsochaired the Cincinnati Mayor’sFriendly Relations Committee,the forerunner of the Cincin-nati Human Relations Commis-sion.

Simon, and his wife, HarrietLazarus, were long-time activemembers of the American Jew-ish Committee, at both the localand national levels. In 1966, dur-ing the height of the era of na-tional and local civil rights re-form, they worked with the AJCCincinnati to establish the Si-mon Lazarus Jr. Human Rela-tions Award. After her hus-band’s death, Harriet spear-headed an effort to stabilizefunding of the program,through an endowment thatwas secured in 1990. Sadly, Har-riet Lazarus died this past Janu-ary, just after her 96th birthday.

This year, the Lazarus Com-mittee vetted 59 nominationssubmitted by 37 high schools.

EDGEWOOD — The DixieHeights High School teacher’slounge is typical, as breakrooms go. There are a fewsmall round tables with chairs.A mini kitchenette. A trumpetechoes and a drum taps fromthe band room directly above.But, when 18-year-old Kather-ine West begins to speak, shetransforms the lounge into agrand courtroom. Her wordsare that powerful.

The trumpet and drum fadeas West, a senior at DixieHeights, becomes a well-versed, experienced attorneycross-examining the plaintiffduring a Mock Trial practice.

This poise and keen sense ofthe case at hand, something allher teammates share, recentlywon them the Kentucky HighSchool State Mock Trial Cham-pionship in Lexington.

“It feels great. We were theunderdogs,” West said. “Theother teams have been aroundfor 30-plus years and have sev-eral attorney coaches. We’vebeen here for four years andhave only one attorney coach.Also we don’t even have accessto a courtroom to practice in.It’s just this little room.”

Casmir Thornberry, 18, ofVilla Hills, agreed, calling the

team “a ragtag group of misfitson the state scene.”

In previous years the 12-member team has finished inthe top 10. By finishing firstthis year, they can compete atthe 2016 National High SchoolMock Trial Championship inRaleigh, North Carolina.

“No one expected that we’dcome in first place,” Thornber-ry said.

Katherine and Brady Grovereceived best attorney awards.Joey Skaggs and Anna ClaireWest received most outstand-ing witness awards.

Mock Trial is a competitionfor high school, college and lawstudents. It challenges kids toplay roles of attorneys and wit-nesses with an actual case factpattern. Dixie’s team is led byteacher coach Matt Davey andattorney coach Jim West.

“This is a fabulous academ-ic competition,” West, an Edge-wood attorney, said. “The chal-lenge is that the students haveto speak clearly, communicatepersuasively and think on theirfeet. This is a highly competi-tive academic sport that reallyteaches the kids how to try acase. The competition is held ina courtroom and judged by re-tired judges and former MockTrial students.”

West became involved withthe team when it started four

years ago. It is one of onlythree Mock Trial teams inNorthern Kentucky.

“I donate my time for thisbecause, frankly, I love thekids,” he said. “Also, I have twodaughters on the team. It isreally my honor and pleasureto do this. They’re all leaders,all intelligent, articulate quickthinkers and fearless cross-ex-aminers. They’re dedicated.Mock Trial takes as much timeor more to prepare as any othersport.”

The team meets 2 1/2 hoursthree times a week at school,and dozens of hours away fromschool to prepare for the com-petition.

“The thing that I’ve enjoyedmost about being a part of thisteam is the people,” Katherinesaid. “We are in the competi-tion only 2 1/2 hours but we’rewith each other for hundredsof hours. We get to know eachother really well.”

For freshman Anna ClaireWest, 15, of Edgewood, MockTrial has “brought me out ofmy shell,” she said.

“It has made me feel moreconfident in myself,” she said.“It’s taken me out of my com-fort zone and it’s been so muchfun.”

The picnic season doesn’t start for me untilMemorial Day.

We have a tradition in our family of attend-ing outdoor Mass, weather per-mitting, at St. Philomena in Cler-mont County. Afterward, there’sa gun salute to the fallen veter-ans. We visit my parents’ gravesand the grandkids help me plantsprigs of Mom’s heirloom mintaround them.

I know many of you celebrateMemorial Day this way, whetherremembering a fallen veteran,family or friends.

So here are some nice sidedishes to go along with the celebration of bur-gers and hot dogs that are part of this specialday.

Tip from Rita’s kitchenIf you don’t have Pernod, a licorice tasting

liqueur, try substituting fennel leaves or tarra-gon, both anise flavored herbs.

Readers want to know

How can I keep Cilantro growing all sum-mer?

Well, you can’t. Cilantro, an annual herb,loves sun but hates heat. It’s not going to staybushy like the heartier herbs such as basil,rosemary, etc. If it does go to seed, let theseeds, called coriander, drop to the ground,cover with a quarter inch of soil and soon you’llsee new cilantro shoots popping up. Or justplant coriander seeds (even from the pantry).You can plant them even into late fall, wherethey nestle in the soil overwinter, ready togrow when the weather gets warm.

Health benefits:Cilantro helps remove heavy metals from

the body. Check out my site Abouteating.comfor more tips on cilantro and substitutes for it.

Spinach, strawberries in seasonfor Memorial Day salad

Roxanne’s strawberry spinach salad

I had a presentation on “Eating from the Garden of Eden” at FaithLutheran Church. Roxanne Johnson prepared dinner for the participantsand her spinach salad was outstanding. I have just enough spinach comingup in my garden to make Roxanne’s version of this classic. Roxanne is aself-taught cook and caterer, picking up much of what she learned from herItalian mom and grandmom.

“Feeding people is my way of expressing love. It is how I can showGod’s care and compassion to others,” Roxanne said.

Dressing:

2 lemons zested (1 teaspoon) and juiced (1/4 cup lemon juice)1/4 cup white wine vinegar2/3 cup sugar2 tablespoons vegetable oil2 teaspoon poppy seeds

Salad: mix together:

1/2 pound strawberries hulled and quartered1/2 medium cucumber, scored, cored, thinly sliced and cut in half1/4 red onion sliced into thin slices and cut in half8 ounces or more baby spinach

Garnish: 1/3 cup sliced almonds toastedAdjust berries, cucumber, almonds and onion to your taste. For dress-

ing combine zest, juice, vinegar, sugar, oil and poppy seeds. Whisk until wellblended. Roxanne uses a stick blender. Pour dressing on salad, toss. Sprinklealmonds on. Serve immediately. Serves 8 to 10.

Roxanne said the salad goes limp pretty quickly so try to make just asmuch as you can use in one sitting.

Morton’s Steakhouse garlic butter clone

For Jon, a “devoted reader” who wants to put a dollop of garlic butterlike Morton’s on top of his grilled strip steaks. The secret ingredients? Whatdo you think about anchovy paste and Pernod liqueur?

Blend:

3 sticks unsalted butter, softenedGood handful parsley, leaves only, minced fine2 tablespoons minced fresh garlicAbout 2 tablespoons minced shallotSqueeze of anchovy paste to taste – start with a teaspoon and go

from therePernod liqueur – start with a generous tablespoon and go from thereSalt (a little bit, the anchovy is salty) and white pepper to taste

To freeze: roll into a log, wrap well and freeze several months.

THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

In Northern Kentucky, wehonor a decades long, pioneer-ing tradition of creating boldregional agendas and aligningour resources in support of thecommunity’s most compelling,shared ambitions. For the last10 years, the legacy of thiswork to strengthen our positionin a global competition fortalent and economic opportuni-ty has been manifest in thestrategies and examples ofprogress of Vision 2015.

To many in our community,the implementation and im-pacts of Vision 2015, and theambitious regional plans thathave preceded it, has not oftenbeen highly visible or easilyrecognizable. In part, that isbecause transformative initia-tives often require a coalitionof independent institutions,businesses and individuals, andthe process of forging coalitionalignment behind common

goals and cata-lyzing actionamong un-related stake-holders can becomplex andpainstaking.

Success inthese endeav-ors requires aunique andcritical massof trust, con-vening, bridge-building, chal-

lenging, and inspiring others toact in partnership. To becomereal, community ambitionsmust enjoy not merely thecurious interest and observa-tion of business and communi-ty leaders, but their passionand genuine partnership indriving an agenda in whichthey firmly believe and areprepared to invest themselves.Thankfully, we live in a com-

munity where our culture andour identity is driven by a spir-it of contribution, and as aresult, our progress has beensteady, and in some cases, ex-traordinarily impactful. It isclear that “but for” our region’ssustained commitment to col-laborative, catalytic, strategic-dreaming – and – doing, theoutcomes of Vision 2015 wouldlikely not exist today.

We can also be proud thatour community is credited withinnovating a highly effectiveplatform for solving complex,multi-dimensional economicand social challenges; innova-tion that has come to be nation-ally recognized in a modelknown as “collective impact.”In our collective impact model,the credit for successes be-longs not to any one organiza-tion, but instead, to the busi-nesses, nonprofits, educationinstitutions, individual leaders

who believe in and work onbehalf of purposes greater thantheir own – and to the funderswhose philanthropy unleashesgifted change-makers to focustheir professional lives on mak-ing real the dreams we share.

As we pause to reflect onNorthern Kentucky’s progress,it must be said that the world istoday a more competitive placethan it was 10 years ago whenwe set upon the work of Vision2015. The prospects for thiscommunity to stimulate great-er economic opportunity,achieve a higher quality of life,significantly improve healthand wellness and create anauthentic, distinctly inclusivecultural vibrancy, now demandeven greater collaboration,focus, effort and ambition.That has proven to be a win-ning strategy for NorthernKentucky and our entire re-gion.

Some might say that it’s ahorrible job for a high schoolstudent. But I love it.

Farming is not a luxuriousor comfortable job, and youalways have to be ready for aletdown. Although on thebright side, when everythinggoes smoothly and you turn outa bumper crop, farming is themost satisfying job on earth.

Good or bad, farming is agamble with uncontrollablevariables like weather, econo-my and mechanical failures.When you feel like you areplaying against loaded dice,and the odds are against you,the best thing you can do iskeep working smart and hopefor a better years to follow.

Many of my fellow high

school class-mates wouldbe discouragedby the hurdlesof farming, butthere are stillmany of uswho preferthis job to theconveniencesof workingbehind acounter in an

air-conditioned retail shop.Why would we prefer this

job?There are many reasons

that test our skills, endurance,strength and problem-solvingability. We are outside peoplewho find it rewarding workingwith our hands and our minds,while connecting with otherswho share similar goals. In theretail position, a pay raise isvery rewarding, but in farming

our pay raises come as healthybaby calves, less competitiveweeds, smooth operatingequipment, and a fair price forcrops.

So even though farming is agamble financially, to quote theFFA Creed, “I know the joysand discomforts of agricultur-

al life, and hold an inborn fond-ness for those associationswhich, even in hours of dis-couragement, I cannot deny.”

Gene Wagner, a student at ConnerHigh School, is a farmer and (prob-ably) gets up earlier than you do.

The $13 million the stateauthorized for Mall Road im-provements four years agowas money well spent. Underthe leadership of Mayor DianeWhalen and the Florence CityCouncil, Mall Road has experi-enced an amazing renais-sance.

Eight years ago, we beganto see the decline of Mall Roadwith many vacancies and nonew development. With theimprovements made along theimportant corridor – includingnew pavement, storm watercontrols, landscaped medi-ums, trees, sidewalks anddecorative street lighting –the transformation has beenamazing. New businesses andconstruction crews are every-where and the previous va-cant storefronts are gone.

Mall Road may be less than

two mileslong, but theretail districtis importantas it also em-ploys morethan 3,400people andgenerates $120million inannual em-ployee wagesand more than

$8 in annual payroll and in-come taxes for Florence,Boone County and Kentucky.The estimated state sales taxgenerated from businesseslocated on Mall Road is morethan $30 million annually.

Costco, a membershipwarehouse club, had beenlooking to build on a 63-acresite, commonly referred to asthe Berkshire Farm, for years

but only approved the projectafter the road improvementson the nearby Mall Road wereannounced. It has been widelyreported that the developersfor Berkshire Farm estimatethat the businesses locatingthere will generate an addi-tional $17 million in local tax-es over 30 years.

Cincinnati-based Krogergrocery store chain decided tobuild a new Marketplace nearan existing store that hadbecome outdated. Burlington,the discount-clothing retailer,is moving into the old Krogerlocation. Two new restaurantshave also announced plans toopen in the corridor. City lead-ers have said they have re-peatedly heard from thesenationally known chains thatimprovements to the road,used by 11.8 million vehicles

annually, factored into theirdecision to build.

I even hear Dave & Bust-er’s plans to open a location inthe Mall Road corridor. It willbe the restaurant-arcade oper-ator’s first foray into Ken-tucky. Coups like this willcontinue to ensure Mall Roadremains Northern Kentucky’spremier shopping and enter-tainment destination for an-other four decades.

Clearly, Mall Road was agood investment for Ken-tucky.

LEXINGTON — Austin Husseynever got to finish a final re-match with Brandon Lancaster.

Hussey, the CovingtonCatholic senior, was eliminatedfrom the KHSAA state tennistournament in boys singles inthe semifinals May 16 at theUniversity of Kentucky. Hus-sey, the two seed, fell to fourth-seeded St. Xavier sophom*oreDrew Singerman in three sets,5-7, 6-3, 10-4. The third set isplayed solely as a tiebreaker to10 points. It was a rematch oflast year’s semis, which Husseyhad won 6-2, 6-4.

Singerman went on to the fi-nals, where he met St. X team-mate Brandon Lancaster, a sen-ior bound for the University ofLouisville tennis program. Lan-caster won 6-2, 6-2 for his sec-ond state title.

Hussey had fallen to Lancas-ter in last year’s state final,which also went to a third-settiebreaker, and defeated himfor the 2013 state title. The twomet again on court the night be-fore in the team finals as theNo. 1 singles players for eachclub.

Wanting to conserve energyfor a possible rematch in thesingles final, the pair startedtheir match about 20 minutesafter the other four had begunin the team dual contest andwere in their ninth game whenSt. X clinched the title. St. X won3-0 for its 24th overall teamchampionship and seventh in arow.

CCH started Hussey at firstsecond singles, Anthony Boschat second and Max Cook atthird. Senior Grant Woodco*ckand junior Blake Heimbrockplayed first doubles, and broth-ers Jake and Jared Haught weresecond doubles.

“Right before this new for-mat, we were runner-up to St. Xby one point,” said Cov Cathhead coach Al Hertsenberg. “Tolose to a team like St. X, there’snothing to be ashamed of. Icouldn’t be more proud of thisgroup for this season.”

Hussey, who will play colle-giately on the same courts atUK, lost five total games in hisfour match wins. He will gradu-ate along with Woodco*ck.

“The way they played in re-gional and sectionals and repre-sented themselves, they madeCovington Catholic proud andall of our supporters proud,”Hertsenberg said. “And me,myself. In my 25 years, I havenot had anything better thanthis.”

CCH’s other state qualifiersreturn. The Haught brothersreached the third round of dou-bles, the farthest any local ad-vanced in that bracket.

Notre Dame fell 3-0 toMcCracken County in the teamfinal. Francie Case fell at firstsingles to defending state indi-vidual singles champion Mi-chelle McKamey. EmmaHughes lost at second singles to

Taylor Sprouse, who lost in thisyear’s state quarterfinals indi-vidually. Abigail Kennedy andMaryann Meadows lost in firstdoubles to Madelyn Kauffmanand Sophia Shiben, who reachedthe state doubles semis. KylieMoellering started at third sin-gles and Catherine Meadowsand Sarah Frisch played seconddoubles, whose match had bare-ly started when McCrackenclinched.

“McCracken’s a great team,”said NDA head coach Rob Har-din. “They’ve been the bestteam all year. Everybody knewthat. We knew we had an uphillbattle. We thought we had agood lineup but we knew we hadto win first doubles to have achance. That was a tall task.”

Kennedy is one of four sen-iors on NDA’s team.

“I’m glad that we got here,”she said. “It took a lot from ev-eryone, it took the whole team.Everyone played their hardest

to get there. It wasn’t just a fewplayers. We played the best wecould.”

NDA beat Russell in the teamsemis, 3-2. Kennedy and Moel-lering swapped roles in the line-up from the finals. Moelleringand Meadows pulled out thematch in dramatic fashion, win-ning 10-8 in the third-set tie-breaker.

Kennedy and Meadows wereNotre Dame’s top performersindividually, reaching the statequarterfinals in doubles beforefalling to the eventual statechamps from Manual. Theywere named to the all-stateteam.

All of Dixie Heights’ entrieswon one match: Brooke Wardenin singles, and both doublesteams of senior Anna Staros-ciak and freshman Annie Atkin-son, and junior Kristen Sniderand sophom*ore Alaina Moore.The five participants is a teamrecord.

The Big Red Machineholds a special place inthe hearts of local base-ball fans, and the Flor-ence Freedom is findinga niche in bringing fanscloser to their favoritestars from that era ofReds history.

Fans donned in Redsapparel packed insideUC Health Stadium Fri-day night to watch theFreedom beat the JolietSlammers 6-5 with Redsgreats Johnny Benchand George Foster serv-ing as honorary coaches.

Bench and Fostersigned autographs onthe field before thegame, threw out cere-monial first pitches, andthen coached first(Bench) and third (Fos-ter) base for the Free-dom for the first two in-nings before heading tothe concourse to signmore autographs forfans.

“We have 2,900 seatsin our lower seatingbowl and sold 2,700 ofthem by 3 or 4 o’clock to-day,” Freedom ownerClint Brown said. “Theafternoon rain hurt ourwalkup (crowd), but thisis great. We expect to dowell on Friday nights.”

The Freedom held asimilar promotion forthe first time last seasonwhen they brought PeteRose to the ballpark, andBrown feels that con-necting local baseballfans with their heroes isa great way to experi-ence the minor leaguegame.

“The really cool thingabout it is we’re not try-ing to be the junior Cin-cinnati Reds,” Brownsaid. “The neat thingabout being out here isyou actually get close tothem. It’s a much moreintimate experience, in-timate stadium; if youwant to actually meetthe guy, you can do it.”

“With the Reds – andthey do a wonderful jobbringing all the formerstars back – you can seethem on the video board.It’s not a close experi-ence.”

The Freedom plan tocontinue bringing starsto the ballpark. On Fa-ther’s day this season,Ken Griffey Sr will be atUC Health Stadiumplaying catch on thefield, and on August 5Jose Canseco will stopby Florence for a homerun derby contest withfans.

“We’re having funwith this stuff,” Brown

said. “We’re such a fam-ily business and a groupouting business that it’smuch easier for us to dowell when school is out.But the first weekend inMay, we need to dosomething a little extraspecial to gain every-body’s attention.”

On a night where theFreedom honored thebest No. 5 in Cincinnatisports history, it was ap-propriate that the Free-dom’s No. 5, Cody Bish-op, starred at the plate inthe win. Bishop went 3-for-4 with three extra-base hits, a run scoredand an RBI. His solo shotto left-center in the bot-tom of the second inningput Florence on top 1-0.He followed it up with aground-rule double inthe third, and anotherdouble in the bottom ofthe fifth where he wasthrown out at third on aquestionable call tryingto stretch the hit into atriple.

Starting pitcher Ca-sey Henn, the lone Cin-cinnati native on theFreedom’s roster,pitched five innings andpicked up the win whileallowing three runs oneight hits with threestrikeouts and a walk.Reliever Daniel DeSi-mone gave up a run inthe ninth, but held on topick up the save.

Henn wiggled out of ajam with two base run-ners on and one out in thesecond, but couldn’t getout of a similar situationin the third when theSlammers put two onwith no outs. Joliet’sMike Garza plated Char-lie White with a groun-dout to third base, andthen the Slammers tooka 2-1 lead on an error byFlorence second base-man Daniel Fraga thatallowed Joliet rightfielder Nate Roberts toscore.

The Freedom took thelead back with a two-outrally in the bottom of thethird that was aided byJoliet’s defensive mis-cues. Freedom centerfielder Jake Luce, whowas in Spring Trainingwith the BaltimoreOrioles, singled up themiddle, stole second andmoved to third when thethrow from Joliet catch-er Jack Cleary bouncedoff Luce’s helmet andcaromed into right cen-ter field. He scoredwhen Slammers’ secondbaseman Max Casperbooted a routine ground-er by Florence’s SamEberle. Bishop then belt-ed a ground-rule doublethat bounced over thecenter field fence, andEberle scored a batterlater on a wild pitch.

The Freedom addedthree insurance runs inthe bottom of the fourthto pull away with a 6-2lead.
