  • Northern Middle Reality Tour 1.jpg Northern Middle students get a reality check on life

    It’s hard enough for adults to learn the ins and outs of car payments, mortgages, bills, health care costs, and child care expenses.
    So imagine how difficult juggling the necessities of everyday life looks to 12- and 13-year-olds.
    “I won’t be able to do a whole lot that I wanted to do,” said student Rachel Blevins, 12, during Northern Middle School’s popular “Reality Town” program. “I learned I will have to spend my money wisely.”
    Blevins and the rest of Northern Middle School’s 7th grade population on Wednesday underwent a reality check of sorts, thanks to a program that has been offered to the students for 15 years now.
    “We’re just giving them a dose of reality,” said Kathy Sampson, youth services center coordinator with Northern Middle.
    When the students step foot into the school gym, they leave middle school and enter a very adult-looking world of banks, car payments, child care, health care costs, unexpected expenses, mortgages, groceries and utility bills, and even “Uncle Sam” himself — think taxes, taxes, and more taxes.

  • ‘Faith Cakes’ a non-profit project with a real sweet tooth

    Baking, for April Adams, is a labor of love — and faith.
    If you ask Adams what her plans are on any random day of the month, she’s likely to be preparing to make cakes and cupcakes from scratch as part of her baking business — but don’t think this is just any local baked goods operation.
    Adams fills orders for around four cakes and around 15 dozen cupcakes a month, all in a variety of flavors. Her prices are tailored to the smallest of orders and to the largest of requests.

    Things to talk about on a slow day at the office:
    Why are both Somerset, Ky. and Cincinnati, Ohio called “Queen City?”
    Second question: How do you spend “an extra day” in Cincinnati, as suggested by Cincinnati, without driving up I-75 or flying into Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport?
