How Pokemon Go helped save a man with dementia in Covington

Kenton County still oversees the airport in Boone County
Thank you, Kenton County, for building your airport in Boone County, the Kenton County Airport Board still oversees CVG.

Two things have made Boone County what it is today. One, it eventually had three interstates that made it a regional commercial hub.

The other was Kenton County's decision to create an airport in Boone County, taking air travel and shipping away from Cincinnati's Lunken Airport.

Back in the 1940s, Kenton County agreed to buy nearly 900 acres in Boone County, as long as it could own and run the airport.

Congressman Brent Spence and Sen. Alben Barkley lobbied for federal funds, and two months after the attack on Pearl Harbor, FDR approved money for site development.

Ultimately, Northern Kentucky got $2 million to build four 5,500-feet runways and an administration building.

In the days before I-275, State Highway Commissioner Lyter Donaldson arranged for public money to build an east-west highway to the airport, named Donaldson Road.

By the time the Army Air Corps started using the facility and the first B-17 landed on Aug. 15, 1944, the war was winding down. A year later, the Air Corps declared it surplus property and turned it over to local government.

Kenton County took control of the site and Northern Kentucky now had a $4 million airport.

On Oct. 27, 1946, it opened a small wooden administration building, and less than three months later, with a three-story terminal nearly finished, American Airlines, Delta and TWA abandoned Lunken and moved to Greater Cincinnati Airport.

Its airport code name would be CVG, the initials of Kenton County's largest city, Covington.

To remind people that the airport in Boone County was a Kenton County-run enterprise, a sign was placed over the front entrance to the terminal that said "Welcome to Kenton County, Ky".

Today, the Kenton County Airport Board still runs what is now called the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport. Source: Scripps Media
