Firefighters ratify contract, lay-offs avoided Lexington firefighters ratified a threeyear contract with the city Sept. 22. Mayor Jim Gray, who was actively involved in the contract negotiations, thanked union members for their willingness to help the financially strapped
city reduce costs in a way that does not compromise care for citizens, a goal of both the administration and the firefighters. The contract, which will now be taken to the Urban County Council for review, includes an estimated $4.7 million in savings over the life of the contract. Gray included more than $5 million in savings in public safety union contracts in his current year “Businessman’s Budget,” which council passed last June. Police and Community Corrections contract negotiations are ongoing. “First, I am thankful for the firefighters’ commitment to our citizens and our community’s well-being. Now firefighters have found a new way to come to their city’s rescue,” Gray said. “I appreciate their willingness to sacrifice for the common good. We are working to transform government by bringing financial responsibility to city hall and we appreciate the leadership of the firefighters in this important effort.” “The Lexington Firefighters understand that these are not ordinary times,” said Lieutenant Chris Bartley, president of the International Association of Fire Fighters Local 526, in Lexington. “This Union understands the economic situation the country and this city currently face. We are willing to make this sacrifice for our citizens. In return, we expect the city to recognize and ensure that fire and EMS protection for this great city SHALL not be compromised.” The contract includes both cost savings and investments to ensure top performance from firefighters.
Savings include: • The union agreed to a two-year wage freeze and other pay concessions. Firefighters will see a pay increase in the third year of the contract. • The union agreed to reduce city health insurance costs by $100 per firefighter per month for the first year of the agreement. • Reductions in vacation and holiday leave time, plus a reduction in holiday premium payments for two years. Investments include: • A commitment not to lay off any firefighters, a step many other cities have had to take because of the recession. Gray said without the financial concessions made in the contract agreement, lay-offs of as many as 50 firefighters would have been inevitable. • Two paramedic training classes and ensured staffing for emergency medical vehicles. The contract covers approximately 488 firefighters, lieutenants and captains. Voting on the agreement began Monday and concluded today. The contract was approved 308 to 99. While focusing on maintaining a high level of service to citizens, Gray’s cuts in the Businessman’s Budget reached beyond Public Safety to every corner of city hall. Through the budget the Mayor and Council: • Assumed savings of $3.5 million on employee health insurance. • Laid off 15 full-time and one part-time employee in non-core areas for a savings of $919,657. • Abolished 215 unfilled or vacant positions, which when combined with other cutbacks, reduced annual General Fund personnel costs by $11.8 million. • Suspended half of the Mayor’s personal salary. • 10-day furlough without pay for Commissioners and Mayor’s senior staff • Took steps to overcome a $27 million shortfall. As part of the budget process, Gray suc-
October 2011 cessfully vetoed $889,612 in spending … the first successful veto of budget items in the history of merged government. The vetoes included $400,000 for construction of Frisbee golf courses, Lacrosse fields and other capital projects. “The Businessman’s Budget was based on core principles I’ve learned in almost 40 years working in a family business,” Gray said. “It’s a budget based on paying down debt, not increasing it; and on starting to address unnecessary costs and activities. Our budget represented a roadmap to solvency by beginning to address out-ofcontrol pensions and health-care costs.”
City rolls out new commingled recycling container program for local businesses
The city’s Waste Management Division, in partnership with Bluegrass PRIDE, is rolling out a new recycling initiative that allows businesses with a cardboard collection container to combine additional recyclable materials such as paper, glass, plastic bottles and jugs, aluminum and steel cans, into that same container. “We started the program because we have more and more businesses, schools and apartments complexes that have found using multiple Rosie carts was not sufficient for the amount of recycling material they were producing,” says Esther Moberly, Recycling Program Specialist in the city’s Division of Waste Management. Using a commingled container is also more cost efficient because it takes less time to empty one large container rather than multiple blue Rosie carts. The commingled container is emptied by a front loader truck with a crew of one, the driver. “It takes a truck with a crew of two or three to service a location using Rosie carts,” Moberly says. “The Rosier carts are emptied with a rear loader truck that can only empty two Rosies at a time. It takes about a minute per cycle. Servicing a business with 20 Rosies takes between 10 and 15 minutes and requires at least two staff members.”

tients deserve to be seen soon after being referred; a long wait of weeks to months to see a specialist is not acceptable, because a lengthy wait can increase the complexity of the treatment plan. Earlier treatment can prevent the development of many kinds of pain. Most painful conditions can be treated without the use of narcotics. While narcotic medications can be utilized to mask the symptom of pain, these types of medications do not treat the painful condition. Over time, patients develop tolerance to these potent opiate medications and their effectiveness is reduced. Tolerance is a condition in which more and more medication must be taken to achieve the same effect. Some people progress to develop addiction. As more narcotics are taken, side effects increase, and this can be very detrimental to overall health. There are many possible side effects, but common ones include fluid retention, swelling, constipation, sedation, poor concentration, decreased immune system function, increased risk of infections, and sexual dysfunction. Current research clearly shows that after someone takes opioids for longer than a few weeks, there is an increased sensitivity to painful sensations. Because of this, narcotics actually increase
pain! At Advanced Pain Medicine, we specialize in the use of injection therapies and interventional techniques to help reverse chronic pain from nerve dysfunction. While we often use antineuropathic medications that interrupt pain pathways, most patients would rather manage their pain without taking medications on a daily basis. Several different types of treatments exist that can help to modify these harmful neuroendocrine changes in the body. Many of these procedures require the use of x-ray guidance for precise, targeted injections. We have the facilities and the expertise to provide these therapies on-site in our office. Often, this vicious cycle of chronic pain can be broken with injection therapy. Patient care is why we are here. Chronic pain treatment demands a patient-centered approach. The mind and body are so closely connected. Chronic pain causes anxiety and depression. We pay close attention to all these aspects in order to treat the entire person. Pain has many dimensions, and at Advanced Pain Medicine, we excel in developing a treatment plan tailored to our patients as individuals.

Another criteria of meaningful use is for practitioners to send prescriptions to your pharmacy electronically, which is called e-prescription. This is a useful tool because all of the medications prescribed electronically are checked against the medications that you currently take, as well as any medication allergies you may have. Once the prescription is put into the record if there is any allergy or if the medication will counteract with any medications you are currently taking it will alert the practitioner.

Improving education: What is the right approach? An editorial by Stu Silberman, executive director for the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence, September 22, 2011
Kentucky has made great strides in education over the past 20 years. This progress is the result of a tremendous amount of hard work by teachers, students, parents, advocates, policymakers, administrators and countless other citizens committed to building a better future. It is important that we recognize and celebrate this work and the difference it has made – moving Kentucky from 49th to 33rd among the states in one recognized index that combines national education rankings. An especially exciting set of data comes from the science scores on the 2009 National Assessment of Educational Progress – often called the nation’s report card. Kentucky’s fourth-graders ranked 4th among the 46 participating states, and our eighth-graders ranked 15th. Results like that tell us that we have cause for pride in past work even as we realize there is plenty more to be done. The Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence, an independent, nonprofit, nonpartisan group of volunteers who have worked since 1983 to improve education, has
been at the forefront of this work, a position the committee plans to maintain as it enters the next phase of advocacy and citizen engagement on behalf of Kentucky’s schools. The committee’s goal of Kentucky being in the nation’s top 20 states by 2020 is an ambitious one (Link: http://www.prichardcommittee.org/wp-content/ TOP_20.pdf), and it is good to know that we are moving in the right direction in some areas. But we continue to come up short in others, and we must acknowledge that we have a long way to go before we see high levels of achievement for all of our students.
It is our intent to continue monitoring Kentucky’s progress closely, to keep Kentuckians updated on successes and continuing challenges, and to point out areas where we believe change is needed. We also think it is important to acknowledge and shed light on the escalating debate about education and what really is best for the future of kids in Kentucky and America. The bottom line is whether we are preparing our children to succeed in their communities, the state and the world. Knowing whether this is actually happening is critical. So is taking the right steps to make sure it does. But anyone who follows the discussions about education reform or reads any education article or publication
knows there is a growing intensity across the country about education policy and practice. Many experts are far apart in their thinking, at best, or diametrically opposed to each other’s proposals, at worst. Understandably, when it comes to our children, we all are very passionate about what we believe is best for them. The purpose of this writing is to put some of these issues on the table in a broad way, and we’ll follow up with more detailed reviews of each of these issues in the weeks and months ahead. The goal is to keep Kentuckians up to date as the education agenda for the state and nation is established and programs are put in place. The Prichard Committee’s blog also is a good resource for anyone wanting to know more. Below is a brief description of the issues and topics that are the focus of current debates in education with more questions in each area on our blog. (Link: http://prichblog.blogspot.com) Student Achievement: It is 2011 and we still have significant achievement gaps. How do we address this issue? For example, will high quality pre-school for all students eliminate these gaps in the future? Continued to page 27

Three Steps Toward Heel Pain Relief
Dr. Amy Follmer and Rob Burnett
s your first step of the day the worst step? Are you dreading every step, walking on your tip toes? If you’ve been off your feet for awhile, does this process start all over again once you start walking? These are classic symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis (pronounced plan-tar fash-ee-eye-tis), a common cause of heel and foot pain in adults.
Primarily, plantar fasciitis is caused by progressive flattening of the arches over time. Other common contributors to this condition include lack of flexibility in the calf muscles, change in activity levels, overuse and weight gain. When your arch drops, the plantar fascia begins to tear away from its origin at your heel. When this happens over a long period of time, it can overcome the body’s ability to repair itself. If left alone, plantar fasciitis may take 6 to 18 months to heal. This can be frustrating, interfering with your ability to work and perform other activities, and the problem may return. What can you do? Follow these 3 simple steps toward heel pain relief.
1. Decrease the Inflammation • Ice Massage Your Arch – Place a water bottle in the freezer and when frozen, place it on the floor and roll your foot over the water bottle for 5-10 minutes. Then massage the painful area with 2 fingers for 5 minutes. Repeat sequence for a total of 20 minutes, 3-4 times a day. You can also use
an ice pack or a bag of frozen vegetables. Icing is most effective the first few weeks after the condition begins and when the heel is inflamed and tender. • Take Anti-Inflammatory Medications – Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) will help decrease the inflammation which results from the tearing of the plantar fascia. Even if the antiinflammatory medications reduce the pain, they are not a cure for the condition. Please discuss your situation with your doctor or podiatrist.
2. Stretch and Exercise • Perform Achilles Stretch, Calf Raise and Toe Scrunch Excercises • Use a Night Splint – A night splint is designed to stretch the plantar fascia while you sleep. The splint holds the ankle at 90 degrees and pulls the toes back, stretching the plantar fascia. There are rigid night splints and soft night splints, such as Thermoskin Plantar FXT, which can be used for a few hours in the evening or at night while you sleep.
3. Prevent Future Occurrence • Wear Orthotics – Orthotics are not soft insoles, they are semi-rigid devices which fit into a pair of shoes to control abnormal foot motion. A custom molded, full-contact orthotic is most effective by evenly distributing your body weight throughout the foot and significantly reducing the daily pull on the plantar fascia.
• Test Your Shoes – Perform 3 basic tests to evaluate a shoe that will be biomechanically effective as well as comfortable. First, check that the heel counter is rigid. Secondly, check that the shoe has a firm resistance to torque when the heel and toe are twisted in opposite directions. Lastly, check that the end third of the shoe (nearest the toes) flexes easily while the middle third resists flexion. Shoes that meet these guidelines, like Aetrex and Brooks, can minimize negative compensations in the feet, knees, hips and lower back. • Avoid Walking Barefoot – Don’t walk without shoes, even in the house. Find a pair of supportive shoes or sandals, such as Orthaheel, that can be worn while in the house. Walking on hardwood, tile or linoleum floors can irritate the problem and exacerbate symptoms. If your heel pain persists, always schedule an appointment with a podiatrist for evaluation to avoid complications in treatment.

7th District Council Member
Autumn in the Bluegrass There is a noticeable change in the air; the temperatures are dropping, the foliage is changing color, students have made their way back to classes, and football has returned. Yes, it’s autumn in the Bluegrass. The arrival of autumn brings with it new challenges for the LexingtonFayette Urban County Government – challenges that I am happy to be taking on as the 7th District Councilmember. After returning from the summer recess, the Urban County Council shook up the committee assignments resulting in many new faces on the various standing committees. I am happy to be currently serving on four committees: Environmental Quality, General Government, Social Services, and Public Safety. Having previously served on the General Government and Public Safety committees, I feel that I can continue my efforts to make our government more efficient and our neighborhoods safer.
I am pleased to report that along with several other council members, I have submitted a list of streets in my district that are in need of repaving, and you should begin seeing improvements soon. Many of our streets are in need of repair and with the winter looming, the nuisance of potholes again becomes a reality. I encourage you to report potholes to LexCall 311 whenever you encounter them. The sooner you report them, the sooner we can fix them and avoid damage to cars and tires. I wish everyone a happy and pleasant autumn season, and encourage you to get out into the community and enjoy the many different events of the season. From UK football games to haunted trails, there is no shortage of activities in Lexington over the upcoming weeks and months. Visit our website to keep abreast of events happening around the city. As always, I urge you to keep my office informed of any issues in your neighborhoods that we can resolve. You may contact me or my staff at (859) 258-3214 or email@example.com. I look forward to continuing to serve you.

Central Baptist named top quality performer in U.S. Central Baptist Hospital has been named one of the nation’s top performers on key quality measures by The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in America. The hospital is being recognized for outstanding evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, and surgical care. Central Baptist is the only hospital in Kentucky recognized in all four categories, and is one of only 405 U.S. hospitals earning the distinction. No other Lexington hospital was recognized in any category. This achievement is based on performance data reported to The Joint Commission during the previous calendar year. As a top performing hospital, Central Baptist earned 95% or above on all performance targets. “Today, the public expects transparency in the reporting of performance at the hospitals where they receive care, and
The Joint Commission is shining a light on the top performing hospitals, such as Central Baptist, that have achieved excellence on a number of vital measures of quality of care,” says Mark R.

Crosstown Kids part of the
rosstown Kids is an educational TV show created to help the public, both adults and kids, understand basic science principles and how they’re used in the real world. The show features three kids visiting and getting tours of institutions throughout Central Kentucky. The show airs on Fayette County Public Schools cable access channel, Insight cable channel 13 in Fayette County, Kentucky. See www.crosstownkids. org for air times. The show is produced by Lexington nonprofit The unClassroom.org (see www.theunclassroom.org). The unClassroom.org was created to promote the understanding of basic science among both adults and kids through a variety of charitable activities. It is operated primarily by Scott Heydinger, who
serves as the director, writer, editor and producer of the show. Rather than the tradional interview or industrial tour TV show formats, “Crosstown Kids” episodes typically portray the children visiting the business on their own accord to seek help with a project they’re working on. Instead of forcing the content on viewers without motivation, episodes are designed to parallel the natural curiosities and thought processes of ordinary play. Beyond the show, the organization further promotes science literacy by offering professional development to Kentucky science teachers, presenting at the Kentucky Science Teachers Association annual conference, providing educational content on the websites and making public and classroom appearances.
How can you participate in the show? The production relies heavily on volunteers, including both adults and kids. Even the kids’ parents are involved, serving as the camera operators and production crew. Kids in grades 3-8 who would like to appear on camera need to write the show via the website as to why they’d like to participate, and have their parents fill out and sign an application form. Nonprofits, organizations, schools, businesses and others with something unique to offer are especially encouraged to contact Crosstown Kids.

Central Baptist to sponsor ‘A Walk to Remember’ Central Baptist Hospital will sponsor “A Walk to Remember” Oct. 9 to observe National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. The walk, to be held at 2 p.m. rain or shine at the Lexington Cemetery at 833 West Main Street, is dedicated to the approximately 935,000 babies who die each year through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth, and newborn death. The event also symbolically joins people nationwide who are working to raise awareness of perinatal grief and ensure
that sensitive care is given to parents who experience the death of a baby. Participants are asked to arrive at 1:30 p.m. for registration. Parking will be around Section C and the Henry Clay Memorial. Activities will include a welcome address, a one-mile walk, poetry reading, recognition of infants and an opportunity for parents to share. Those who plan to participate are asked to RSVP to Deborah Mueller at (859) 260-6904 or email@example.com.
Continued from page 12 Curriculum and Standards: What should we be teaching our kids? Forty-four states have adopted what are called the Common Core standards. Should there be a consistent set of standards that guide teaching and learning? Accountability and Testing: How much should we be testing students? Should standardized testing be used for accountability? How do we measure student progress? Are teachers teaching to the test, and is that good or bad? Teachers: How should teachers be evaluated? Are salaries and benefits too low or too high? Should teacher pay be linked to student performance? Is tenure good or bad?
Factors Outside the Classroom: How do we address problems we have in our society, like poverty, to ensure all students receive a high quality education? How important is the role of the parent/guardian and what should that look like? Are extra-curricular activities important?
School Choice: Charters, vouchers, private schools, magnet schools, home schools, digital schools, schools of innovation.....Does having choice make a difference? Funding: Are the current levels of funding for our schools adequate? Is Kentucky’s funding formula equitable? Is it time to mobilize citizens around this issue? Governance/Leadership: Do we need site based councils, boards of education, state departments of education, or are there other governance structures that would work better? We will address each of these issues in more detail, starting with student achievement, in the weeks and months ahead. Meanwhile, we must celebrate our progress but do it as we continue to speak out as strong advocates with high expectations for our kids, our schools and our future. Time is of the essence. To paraphrase an infamous general: we must stop looking at our calendars and start looking at our watches!
