        HEBRON — Ted Bushelman worked all day Thursday at the Ashland hanger at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport to ensure everything was just right for the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce's annual meeting that evening.

        Then, when the meeting was held, the Chamber honored the airport's director of communications for all his service to the Northern Kentucky community. He received this year's Walter R. Dunlevy/Frontiersman Award, the Chamber's highest honor.

Outstanding service
        Mr. Bushelman, who lives in Florence, has been the communications director at the airport since 1967. Known for his pencil-thin mustache, he is the airport's voice through his work with the media.

        The award, named for the Chamber's second president, recognizes an individual who has a lifelong history of outstanding service to Northern Kentucky, exhibits outstanding service in his or her profession or industry, and exemplifies the highest standards of personal integrity and family responsibility.

        Mr. Bushelman was instrumental in the development of the Boone County Library system, and serves on the library's board of directors. He also was one of the original group that started the annual Florence Y'All Labor Day festival.

        The Chamber also honored Mike Claypool, president of MAC Productions, with the Walter L. Pieschel Award for outstanding service to the Chamber over the past year.

Help to the Chamber
        Mr. Claypool, a resident of Fort Mitchell, was co-chairman of Northern Kentucky Night in Frankfort, the largest legislative reception of the year at the Capitol. He also helped plan the Chamber's annual meeting, which attracted about 1,100 people.

        Professional golfer Steve Fletsch and the Northern Kentucky University's 2000 women's basketball team were recipients of the Northern Kentucky ImageMaker Award.

        The NKU women's team won the NCAA Division III collegiate championship last season. Mr. Fletsch, an Edgewood native, competes on the PGA Tour and had a strong showing this year in the British Open.
