December 2013 Awards presented by Alltech on Thursday, Jan. 29, 2014, at the Griffin Gate Marriott Resort & Spa.

The Hamburg Journal is happy to provide the following business-related news from our area:

Brennaman, who has been the voice of the Cincinnati Reds since 1974, has entertained and informed legions of baseball fans for generations, including a vast audience in Kentucky. He joined the Reds radio team at the start of the 1974 season and for 31 years shared the radio booth with Reds Hall of Fame pitcher Joe Nuxhall.

provement, and they should be proud of their achievement,” says Mark R. Chassin, M.D., FACP, M.P.P., M.P.H., president and chief executive officer for The Joint Commission. “We have much to celebrate this year. Nearly half of our accredited hospitals have attained or nearly attained the top performer distinction. This truly shows that we are approaching a tipping point in hospital quality performance that will directly contribute to better health outcomes for patients.”

Just completing his 49th season as a broadcaster and 40th with the Reds, Brennaman was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2000, receiving the Ford C. Frick Award. He is also a member of the National Sportscasters & Sportswriters Association Hall of Fame, the National Radio Hall of Fame and the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame. He is extremely active in the community and has helped raise millions for charity through a variety of efforts, including an annual golf event bearing his name.

Saint Joseph East is one of 1,099 hospitals in the U.S., earning the distinction of Top Performer on Key Quality Measures for attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measure performance for the care of certain conditions. The facility was recognized for its achievement in the areas of heart attack care, heart failure care, pneumonia treatment and surgical care. The ratings are based on accountability measure data reported to The Joint Commission during the 2012 calendar year.

In addition to being included in The Joint Commission’s “Improving America’s Hospitals” annual report, Saint Joseph East will be recognized on The Joint Commission’s Quality Check website . The top performer program will be featured in the December issues of The Joint Commission Perspectives and The Source .

Stein will receive the Jim Host Sports Business Award. The lifelong Lexington resident is best known for bringing professional baseball to his hometown. In the late 1990s, Stein organized and led a group of investors to build the Lexington Legends’ ballpark without any public funding.

“We are committed to providing safe, effective care. That’s why Saint Joseph East has made a commitment to accreditation and to positive patient outcomes through evidencebased care processes,” said Eric Gilliam, president, Saint Joseph East. “We’re proud to receive the distinction of being a Joint Commission Top Performer on Key Quality Measures.”

Berkley & Schuler, PLLC is pleased to announce the opening of an office in the Hamburg area of Lexington at 1795 Alysheba Way, Suite 3201. The founding members are Joshua G. Berkley and Joseph P. Schuler. Both are UK law graduates.

Saint Joseph East earns Top Performer on Key Quality Measures® status Saint Joseph East, part of KentuckyOne Health, has been named a top performer on Key Quality Measures® by The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of healthcare organizations in America.

In order to achieve the status as a top performer, a facility must: 1) achieve cumulative performance of 95% or above across all reported accountability measures; 2) achieve performance of 95% or above on each and every reported accountability measure for which there are at least 30 denominator cases; and 3) have at least one core measure set that has a composite rate of 95% or above, and within that measure set have a performance rate of 95% or above for all applicable individual accountability measures. A 95% score means a hospital provided an evidence-based practice 95 times out of 100 opportunities. Each accountability measure represents an evidence-based practice: examples include giving aspirin at arrival for heart attack patients, giving antibiotics one hour before surgery and providing a home management plan of care for children with asthma. “Saint Joseph East and all the top performer hospitals have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to quality im-

Berkley & Schuler opens Hamburg office

Berkley was previously an associate with Sherrow, Sutherland & Associates, PSC in Lexington and is the communications committee chair for the Real Property Law Section of the Kentucky Bar Association. Schuler previously worked as a legislative aide for the Lexington City Council and currently serves as board president of CASA of Lexington. They are focusing their practice in the areas of civil litigation, estate planning and family law. Visit for more information or call (859) 263-0788.

Stein And Brennaman named Bluegrass Sports Award winners The Bluegrass Sports Commission (BSC) is proud to announce Marty Brennaman and Alan Stein as two of this year’s honorees during the third annual Bluegrass Sports

Currently founder, president and CEO of the SteinGroup, LLC, a Lexington-based consulting and investment company, Stein retired in 2011 as President and Chief Operating Officer of Ivy Walls Management Company, to whom he sold the Legends. In that role he expanded Ivy Walls’ portfolio to include multiple sports franchises and facilities across the country including the Omaha Storm Chasers, Werner Park and the Southwest Michigan Devil Rays, among others. Stein joins previous winners Jerry Carroll (Kentucky Speedway) and Ted Bassett (Keeneland) as the Jim Host Sports Business Award recipients. In addition to these awards, the evening will also include the naming of the Tom Hammond Kentucky Sports Media Award and the Jim Host Youth Sports Award. The BSC is seeking nominations for both online. The Lexington Herald-Leader will once again present its annual Sportsman of the Year Award live to cap off the evening. The event will consist of a VIP reception with award winners and keynote speakers, a sit-down dinner and professionally produced awards program. Proceeds from the evening will benefit the BSC and its efforts to grow the economic impact sports tourism has on central Kentucky. Tables of 10 are available for purchase for $1,250. Individual tickets are also available for $125. For more information or to purchase tickets, please call 859-255-0336 or visit us online at

cal. Between my duties as Mrs. Kentucky, I’m a wife, mother, high school teacher and online fashion entrepreneur. I stay pretty busy to say the least, but I love life this way. Christy: What do you feel is the biggest challenge facing “Mrs.” of today? Christina: In a world where Facebook and reality television invade our daily lives, it’s easy to fall into the comparison trap with other “Mrs.” who may appear to have better lives. Theodore Roosevelt said “comparison is the thief of joy.”

Christy Stucker Mrs. USA Globe 2005 Mrs. Kentucky America 2014 As a former Mrs. Kentucky America (2009), I am pleased to introduce you to the newest Mrs. Kentucky, Christina Gora from Lexington. Christy: Congratulations. You are going to have an amazing year. What are you looking forward to most as

Christy: What personal accomplishment (to date) are you most proud of? Christina: I’ve done some pretty neat things in my life. I rappelled off the 5/3 building (even though I’m deathly afraid of heights); my husband and I took an 8,000 mile road trip across the U.S. (as we slept in the car and showered at truck stops the entire trip); and I did win Mrs. Kentucky 2014 (yay!). My biggest and proudest accomplishment however, was the day I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl, KatieAnn.

Mrs. Kentucky 2014? Christina: I love to travel, so getting to travel across the entire state in order to showcase Kentucky’s beautiful places, people and charities is a big plus in my book. Getting to dress up wherever I go is equally as exciting ... What an adventure. Christy: What does being a Lexingtonian mean to you?

Christy: Who inspires you? Christina: My inspiration definitely comes from those who have the light of spirituality shining within them. Their encouragement gives me energy to continue inspiring and uplifting other people. Christy: What are your favorite things to do and favorite places to go in and around Lexington?

Christina: First, as a honest-to-goodness Kentuckian should, I bleed blue, especially since

The end of the year is approaching, and with it is the end of the year’s activities, commencements, ceremonies, programs and goodbyes. It is a time of year to say thank you for your continued support of the Hamburg Journal in 2013. Without the support we could never have accomplished it. It’s people like you who have made this profession enjoyable and rewarding. You see, if it weren’t for the effort you put forth, we would not have reached the level of production that we were fortunate enough to attain.

This month’s cover feature is Joli Salon & Spa. They have gifts of joy for all. They make their guests feel radiant, not just on the outside, but also on the inside. They uphold the values of Aveda, from the products they use to the way they give back to society. Pages 14-15. In this very busy world of ours, we seldom take the time to express our appreciation for the efforts of those who help us in many ways. I wanted to make certain you knew how appreciative I am. Have a very merry Christmas! Sincerely,

December 2013

Winter market hours will continue through the end of March, with April 5, 2014 marking “opening weekend” and the beginning of the traditional growing season. Please join the Lexington Farmers’ Market every Saturday to buy directly from the market members and find seasonal vegetables such as spinach, kale, winter squash, radishes, onions and potatoes. In addition, you can find farm-fresh eggs, beef, chicken, turkey, pork, lamb, goat, cheeses,

Fall is the best time to winterize homes With the cold weather season approaching, take a little time now to make sure your water pipes are ready for the winter – you may be glad you did! Keith Cartier, vice president of operations for Kentucky American Water, stresses that it’s important to make preparations to prevent water damage from frozen and burst pipes before temperatures plunge. “When water freezes, it expands and takes up more space. That is why water that freezes inside a water pipe can cause it to burst. Burst water pipes can cause a lot of damage to a home or business, and we want to do everything we can to help our customers avoid that inconvenience and, perhaps, costly repairs,” he said. Some problems are preventable by evaluating areas throughout the home. Implementing the following winterization tips now can help avoid headaches later:

All gloves collected will go to School Resource Centers and other local charities for distribution to children in need beginning January 2nd, 2014. And for every checking account opened between Nov. 18th and Dec. 31st, Forcht Bank will donate $10 to purchase more new gloves. With your help, we’ll warm up hands and hearts this winter!

• Search your house for un-insulated pipes, especially in unheated areas. Check attics, crawl spaces, and outside walls. Consider wrapping pipes with insulation sleeves. Another option is electric heating tape, but follow manufacturers’ instructions, • Seal cracks and holes in outside walls and foundations with caulking to keep cold air away from pipes, especially where cable TV or phone lines enter the house. • When below-freezing temperatures are forecast, keep a slow trickle of water flowing through faucets. • Keep cabinet doors open to allow warm air to circulate around pipes. • If your home is heated by a hot-water radiator, bleed the valves by opening them slightly. Close them when water appears. • Make certain that the water to outside faucets is shut off inside your house (via a turnoff valve), and that the lines are drained. • Drain and shut off entirely the water to any unoccupied residence such as a summer or vacation home. • Set the thermostat no lower than 55 degrees if you’re going out of town. • Consider wrapping your water heater in an insulation blanket.

Trust raises $10,000 for equine facilities Putting another spotlight on Lexington as the Horse Capital of the World, Masterson Station Park was the site of the inaugural MET Benefit Hunter Pace Nov. 3. Competitors and spectators enjoyed plenty of food, fun, tailgating and horse riding. Sponsored by Masterson Equestrian Trust Foundation (MET), the Benefit Hunter Pace drew 210 competitors in a timed cross-country event that mimics the conditions a rider might experience while fox hunting. Riders competed in teams of two, three or four. In this fun competition, equestrians were encouraged to try new things throughout the course, taking their horses over jumps and obstacles, negotiating creek crossings, and opening and closing gates. Many riders sported costumes that matched their team names, such as the Ponies of Peace, who were decked out in multicolored wraps, peace signs and tie-dyed shirts. Spectators viewed the Hunter Pace outing from different spots on the course, much like cross-country day at Rolex.   Through entry fees and sponsorships, the benefit raised a little more than $10,000. The monies will be used to improve and maintain the equine facilities at Masterson Station Park to keep it a safe, beautiful and useful recreational site for the entire community.   The MET Benefit Hunter Pace had riders from a wide range

of disciplines, including eventers, hunters, recreational trail riders, saddle seat riders and western riders. Many breeds were represented: appaloosas, friesians, thoroughbreds, gaited horses, quarter horses, and even a miniature horse and a pair of mules competed. Officers from the Lexington Mounted Patrol Unit monitored the road crossing during the event. “A shoutout is in order for the mounted policemen that came to manage our road crossings. They came back with huge smiles on their faces and full of stories of all the folks having a wonderful time out on the course,” said event coorganizer Dr. Erika Wierman. “It was so much fun and

I am still on a high from the sheer volume of folks that showed up. People had a fantastic time and that is what it’s all about.” Ribbons were awarded for first through sixth place in each of three divisions, plus a family class. The first-place winners received a julep cup and other prizes donated by sponsors. Biederman Realty and Kentucky Performance Products were the first-flight corporate sponsors; Feldman Lumber, Mix on Vine and Timber Town Stables were the second-flight sponsors; and there were 16 individual and business fence sponsors.

Due to all the extra expenses during this time of year — your busy schedule, the fact that you are still exhausted from last year and you don’t want to make the mistake of showing up at the office Christmas party wearing the same dress as a co worker — may I suggest going through your current wardrobe. Of course, you could wear what you wore last year. I mean, really who is going to remember? Right? Hummm. Oh well, if that does concern you, how about updating last year’s dress and holiday attire with a few new accessories? I recommend a bold colored necklace. It will bring a sparkle

to your eyes. Or, try wearing your perfect little black dress and spicing it up with an amazing holiday shoe; now that is a sure way to put a swing in your step!

New treatments are available for foot fungus We’ve all seen toenails at the pool or in the shower at the gym. Yellow toenails, thick toenails and discolored toenails all point to the same thing — fungus. It’s an embarrassing condition, but it’s also very common. Lexington Podiatry urges patients to call at the first sign of an infection because it can lead to permanent damage and can spread to other parts of the body. With technology like laser therapy, there’s no need to hide those toenails. The symptoms are easy to recognize, with the most obvious being discoloration that starts as a yellowish or white spot just under the tip of the nail and darkens as it progresses throughout the nail. Women often mistake yellow nails as a sign that they wore their nail polish too long when, in fact, it could be a fungal infection. Other symptoms include nails that are thickened, brittle, distorted, crumbling at the edges or detached. Lexington Podiatry is one of the only podiatry practices in Kentucky with an FDA approved

laser to treat nail fungus. Many advertise treatment, but they may not be not using a laser that can penetrate the nail bed. Lasers are the most advanced way to treat nail fungus because there are no possible side effects, like the potential for liver damage that is associated with some oral medications. It’s also easier and more effective than topical creams because they have to be applied multiple times/day for months on end. Patients have a hard time keeping up with that and then don’t comply so the fungus doesn’t go away. Lasers are quick and painless and highly effective.


Winter is the perfect time to treat nail fungus because nails are covered by socks and you don’t feel the need to wear nail polish (important as they’re treating the fungus).

George M. Veloudis Jr. D.O. and Amy Claxon, PA-C

Plus, nails can be growing out during these months and be clear by the spring and summer. The treatment will depend on the type and severity of the infection.

Is your child ready for preschool? By Michelle Walker Campbell Most preschools will start accepting children anytime between 18 months through 3 years, but that doesn’t mean your child is magically ready when they reach that age. Readiness for preschool has more to do with the social, emotional, physical and cognitive development of each individual child. Is your child ready to participate in a 2-, 4- or 5-day structured, educational program with a group of other children? The best way to determine preschool readiness is to spend time thinking about your child and talking to other people who know them well, such as your spouse, your pediatrician and your child’s current caregiver.

Now Accepting New Students!

located at Victory Lutheran Church, corner of Old Todds & Mt. Tabor

Points to consider when thinking about preschool readiness include: 1) Independence Preschool usually involves lots of activities that require concentration and the ability to focus on an individual task. If your child likes to build with blocks or gets involved while working puzzles, they are a strong candidate for preschool. However, if your child seems to need reassurance, you can establish solo playtimes where they entertain themselves for 30 minutes each day. 2) Experience Separating If your child hasn’t had many opportunities

this January Ages 3 & 4

Fall 2014 Ages 18 months to 2 ½ Ages 4 & 5

to be away from you, you might consider planning a weekly date night with your spouse or a night out with friends to help the child become more comfortable. 3) Group Activities Some preschool activities such as “circle time” require that all children participate at the same time. These interactions give children an opportunity to play and learn together, but also require that they sit relatively still, listen to stories and sing songs. You can provide opportunities for practice—take them to story time at your local library or sign them up for a classes at a Kindermusik, Gymboree Play & Learn or at Little Gym. 4) Routine Preschools usually follow a schedule. Children feel most comfortable and in control when the same things happen at the same time every day. So if your child doesn’t keep to a schedule, it will help them if you plan and implement a more structured routine. 5) Stamina Whether half-day or full-day, preschool is active. How and when does your child currently nap? If they require rest mid-morning, it is most likely not time to start school. You can work toward building stamina by ensuring plenty of sleep for your child.

KentuckyOne Health establishes multiple sclerosis center KentuckyOne Health has established a new center focused on the care of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). The KentuckyOne Health Multiple Sclerosis Center, located at 1021 Majestic Drive in Lexington, connects patients living with multiple sclerosis to medical experts for comprehensive care. Multiple sclerosis is a chronic lifelong disease that attacks the central nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. It often affects individuals in the prime of their life. Symptoms may be mild to severe and include numbness in the limbs, problems with balance, paralysis, loss of vision, fatigue, bladder dysfunction, and cognitive issues. The KentuckyOne Multiple Sclerosis Center is a comprehensive program that links patients with a core group of experts in the fields of medicine, physical, occupational and speech therapies, neuropsychology, social work and research. The comprehensive approach provides care for patients from diagnosis throughout treatment. The center has already drawn patients from

Fred Robinson of Mercer County, Kentucky has received care from Saint Joseph Neurology Associates, part of KentuckyOne Health, since 2006. He was diagnosed with MS in December of 2005. Since the MS Center was established, his care has expanded. The center connected him with the Beaumont Centre Family YMCA in Lexington for physical and occupational therapy. When Robinson completed his physical and occupational therapy, he began participating in the wellness program at the YMCA, which includes low impact aerobics and occasional workouts with a trainer in the gym. “I probably wouldn’t have gone to the Y without being encouraged to do so,” Robinson said. “Once I got into it, I absolutely loved it.”

Maintaining weight during the holidays A s the holiday peak nears with cookies, eggnog, and chocolate everywhere in sight, it’s easy to understand how many of us can feel trapped in an inevitable weight gain during the holiday season. If weight loss currently seems near impossible, but the aspect of at least maintaining current weight intriguing, here are some easy tips to get you going.

Non-Surgical Medical Weight Loss

1. Plan ahead. If you have an event in the evening, set a few limits for yourself. If you know you will likely splurge on holiday goodies, make it a controlled splurge. Controlling the splurge will still let you enjoy all the treats you’re craving, but won’t set you a week behind come January 2nd. 2. Eat before you go. Never attend a party on an empty stomach. Doing so will almost always leave you with twice the amount of calories at the end of the night versus if you would have had a light healthy snack or protein drink prior to the party to help control hunger and keep away from high-calorie foods. Choose an item higher in protein content and it will help fend off carbohydrate cravings later that night. 3. Fill up on water. Carry around a glass of water while at a party. Water fills you up and causes you to eat less. The signals between thirst and hunger are very close in the brain and many times when you think you are hungry, you are really thirsty. Drink a full glass of water then, wait ten minutes, and often the craving will go away. 4. Limit alcoholic beverages. Although alcohol and parties often seems like a natural pair, it will be nearly impossible to maintain your weight if you indulge too much in them. The best option is to not drink any alcohol, but if you have decided to do so, set a limit of one or two drinks. Have a full glass of water in between each beverage. Water will help to prevent next morning dehydra-

tion and nasty holiday hangovers as well as save calories. 5. Schedule time to exercise. Along with all the fun of the holidays comes a massive amount of stress to get things done in time. Take 15 minutes a day to enjoy what’s going on around you. A brisk daily walk not only is one of the best ways to avoid weight gain until the New Year, but you can enjoy the decorations, get away from all the commotion, and refocus on the true holiday spirit. 6. Indulge in fun activities. Reading books to children, making holiday decorations, playing board games, shopping with friends, and volunteering your time, are just a few of the ways you can celebrate the holidays without overeating. Giving to others takes the focus off of us, and reminds us of what the season is all about. 7. Keep your weight loss goals in sight. Don’t lose track of why you are taking these precautionary steps. Remind yourself why a healthy weight is so important for a long healthy life. If your goal is to really focus on weight loss come January 2nd, take the first step today. Make your appointment to discuss your goals with a weight loss specialist (bariatrician) to give yourself the strongest start. Making plans now to take action will help keep the focus this holiday season so that you can start your journey to finally reaching and staying you’re your goals. 8. Get a holiday Join forces with a friend with the same waistline budgeting goals and keep each other in check while you’re at holiday get-togethers. Make a pact before social gatherings that you will be the voice of reason for each other. Just don’t get annoyed when that Frosty the snowman cookie gets taken out of your hand, but have fun replacing her eggnog with a game of charades. 9. Stay active during the holidays and those extra pounds won’t creep up on you. The holidays are about families and friends.

Pick a buddy or two and use the time to spend it together as well as to help motivate you through the holidays. A 30-minute brisk walk every other day can do wonders for maintaining your waistline. 10. Don’t feel deprived. If you tell yourself that you are “not allowed” to eat the pumpkin pie, you’re going to want it all the more. If you tell others you “shouldn’t have it”, you’re still going to want it and they’re going to say it’s OK to have it. Instead, try a planned splurge. Know what you are going to allow yourself ahead of time. Let them know you might try a little later, but for now you’re enjoying everyone’s company. Don’t forget those five minutes of planning a day can save you hours of time at the gym along with lots of headaches later trying to get those pounds off. 11. Understand why you do what you do. Reaching towards food in times of celebration during the holidays or for comfort from sadness during the holidays is a natural thing as we have learned our entire lives since birth that food is precious and good. Infants cry and get bottles, toddlers get a vaccination shot and then a sucker, we celebrate birthdays with cakes, and the list goes on. So it’s natural but not healthy. I’ve never met anyone yet come January second that has said anything to the effect that they were so glad they ate the quantity of food they did during November and December. You’re not going to have a worse holiday season if you eat half the amount of cookies you normally would. Replacing the comfort or celebratory food with healthier more relaxing actions helps feed our minds and nourishes our bodies. Taking a brisk fall walk, nestling into a good book, or talking to a friend or relative on the phone will help a lot more than just your waistline. Happy Holidays!
