- Republican candidate for Campbell County Sheriff, Mike Jansen, is having his campaign kickoff reception tomorrow at Devannas on the Lake at 4120 Alexandria Pike in Cold Spring at 5:30.

- One of our newest advertisers, Suzie Q's, has a really neat program coming mid-October that will be a real differentiator for after school programs with a mix of crafts and school work.
The classes will have 45 minutes of structured school time, followed by a specific, Pintrest-insprired craft, led by owner, Judy Dedeker.
Tuesdays and Thursdays will have classes for 1st-5th grades. Wednesdays and Fridays there will be classes for 6th-12th grades. The superclass teen class will have the option to do homework then start their craft.
You can check the calendar for dates at www.Suzie-Qs.com (or just click their ad on the FTM advertising column). Cost for class will be listed on specified days.
The annual Fort Thomas Police Blood Drive will be October 22, from noon till 6:30 in front of the Fort Thomas Fire Department. Schedule your appointment now at www.hoxworth.org/groups/fortthomaspolice
- The Brighton Emerging Leaders Annual Halloween Fright Night is Friday, October 25th at Jerzees Pub. The "BELs" are made up of young area professionals that help spread the mission of The Brighton Center and raise money for their programs.
Put this on your calendar today. It's always a great event.
- Dr. Frank Traina of SunRock Farms spoke recently at the Fort Thomas Lions Club meeting at the Highland Country Club. His topic was mass extinction of species and evolution. This produced a lively discussion which lasted well into the evening. Known as "Farmer Frank", he has owned Sunrock Farms since 1978. He has spoken for the club several times and is an all time favorite. Sunrock Farms is an educational farm that introduces kids to nature and receives over 30,000 visit each year.
- And finally, via a message from our Facebook page, there is a community yard sale this weekend at Ridgewood Place, off Highland Ave this Saturday. Get out for possibly one of the last nice weekends of the year.
