In the early morning of May 29, 2012, I met my friend Randy at the Cincinnati Public Landing around 6:30 for my first Drift Fishing experience. Once he had the boat in the water, we headed upriver to net some shad for bait. Once we had the bait we went to our first spot to fish; on the Ky. side below the I-275 Bridge. We had our lines in the water at 7:35, with not much current and the water was clear.
We had a total of 6 rods out; 3 on the bow, my 2 on the back, and one off to the side in the back. With the lack of current, Randy had to use the trolling motor to move the boat. We then had 2 snags which forced us to cut the lines and re-tie. Randy had 2 depth finders fired up, one on the bow so he could keep tabs on the change of the river bottom as he adjusted the reels on the 3 front rods. Then at 8 o’clock Randy hooked the first fish of the day, a nice 5.7 pound channel cat. The fresh cut shad had worked just fine.
At 8:30 the dark rain clouds rolled in, with the wind blowing right up the river. We got all our lines in, as the white caps were getting bigger by the minute. We then headed for the Little Miami River to at least get out of the wind. Both of us had rain gear on so rain was not a major problem. The steady rain lasted for around 30 minutes, and then we got back on the Ohio.
Our next spot was on the Ohio side just above Schmidt’s Ramp. We had no luck there, so he powered up and moved down river a little way just across from Dayton Ky. by the big crane. The sun was back out and Randy started getting a bite. At 12:45 Randy boated the second fish of the day, a small 2 pound channel cat. Fifteen minutes later, Randy's rod got hit, this time it was a blue cat of 7.5 pounds! Once again the wind roared so we headed for the Licking River.
The Licking was just dead (no current at all), so the trolling motor had a workout. We fished up above the 12th Street Bridge for around 20 minutes with no luck so headed back to the Ohio. We began drifting again just below the Water Front restaurant on the Ky. side, just a little up river breeze at that time. The boat drifted all the way down to the I-75 Bridge when we decided to call it a day at 3 o’clock. At least Randy did get some fish into the boat.
I headed home with a lot of new knowledge about how to drift fish. It requires a dependable trolling motor and depth finder for starters. You really have to be alert for the changes in depth to reduce the hang up on snags. I have been told that in order to get big blues, drift fishing is the key. It will require me to go out on more trips to feel comfortable with this type of fishing. It does require a lot of skill to handle a boat and all those rods, especially when you have a big catfish hooked!

Holy Trinity School students celebrated Earth Day by cleaning up their campuses, located in Bellevue and Newport. They weeded flower beds, picked up trash in the parking lots, and cleared general debris from the properties. They were all sporting their new "Feeding God's Children" shirts, supplied by the Catholic Order of Foresters. Each student that donated 2 boxes of Zip Lock bags to St. Bernard's Food Pantry was eligible for a shirt.
The students took great pride in the work they did that day and learned what it means to share responsibility for your community and how much a group can accomplish working together.

Greendevil Track and Field has had a stellar season. The girls team brought home the first ever NKAC Division III Conference title! With just 12 athletes, they were able to outscore all of the other teams. It was a thing of beauty.
We also saw our first double REGIONAL CHAMPION in Johnessah Barbiea since 1999. She moved on to earn bronze medals at the State Championships. Along with that, she broke both Dayton High School jumps records and is only a freshman. Look for big things from that young lady!
There were 12 Dayton athletes who qualified for the state meet in 13 events. Both Buddy Lukens and Mallory Kubala made it to the finals. Collectively, our seniors have participated in the track program for 31 seasons! They and their leadership will be sorely missed! We love you guys!
The middle school teams took down 7 different middle school records with Nolan Brooks qualifying for the state championships in the Pole Vault event. Respect our past; Fear our future!

Another nomination stated, “Mrs. Erdman is not only an employee, but a friend to many of the kids. Even though some kids have trust issues, they seem to be able to talk with Jen. She’s a parent, employee, volunteer, and a guard instructor with the band. She was such a huge help getting the band ready to perform and even helping organize my classroom on her free time.”
Mrs. Erdman is so much more than an incredible ISD teacher. She schedules subs for our entire school and often subs for our teachers when we need help. She's a tutor in Friday school, in addition to fundraising and coaching winter guard and band. Most recently she has agreed to get her CDL license so she can drive buses. She has many talents and gives selflessly. We really appreciate all that you do Mrs. Erdman!

The Doyle Country Club, Mary Ingles Highway, Dayton, Kentucky, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior on March 13, 2017. The National Register is the nation’s official list of historic properties worthy of preservation.
Dayton Kentucky is known for its rich architectural heritage of the old river town. The Doyle Country Club, est. 1919, retains the distinct characteristics of a twentieth century River Camp Community, as well as its association with recreation and entertainment on Bellevue/Dayton’s Ohio Riverfront during the period of significance, 1920-1966.
During the first three decades of the 20th century, a thriving riverfront emerged in Dayton. These entertainment and recreation venues were very popular, drawing crowds of thousands on the weekend. These venues were often referred to as the Ohio River Beach Resorts. Ohio River Camps were also quite popular in the early part of the 20th century in the towns of Bellevue and Dayton Kentucky as elsewhere. These communities, for the most part, were short lived due to impermanent construction, rising river levels and seasonal flooding.
Located within blocks of Dayton’s riverfront entertainment district, Doyle’s riverfront property provided a rural oasis amid a thriving urban area. Thick groves of shade trees, lush grassy areas, sandy beaches and shallow water offered an ideal place for picnics, fishing, boating, sunbathing and swimming. The club rented picnic areas, baseball diamonds and horseshoe courts for athletic events and contests. In the 1920’s, folks coming to Doyles were charged a 5-cent visitor fee; by 1935 the visitor fee was 25 cents and children continued to be free. Many folks remember summer dances in Doyle’s Dance Pavilion.
The Doyle Country Club has endured a remarkable time and remains considerably intact, giving a rare glimpse of a vibrant time when these communities provided a popular summer escape from the heat of summer in the city. Current members, including several descendants of original members of the camp from 1919, still bring their families to Doyle’s the first warm days of spring. Most of the Doyle Country Club structures and summer cottages contribute to the historic resources. The Dance Pavilion, dedicated on June 21, 1921, continues as the focal point of the community identity and activity.
