Midway College receives special year-end gift funds earmarked to assist college’s nursing/science programs Midway College is pleased to announce a special gift it received in December 2012 that will benefit the students and faculty in the nursing or science program. The gift of $40,000 from the Raymond Foundation is to be used for student awards for those majoring in nursing and/or science. Eight students will receive $5,000 scholarships for the 2012-13 academic year.   “We are grateful to the Raymond Foundation for its support of the College with this generous gift. Our nursing program continues to grow and train many of the top nurses in the state,” said Roy Mundy, vice president of Advancement for Midway College. “It is because of supporters like the Raymond Foundation that Midway College can continue to fulfill its mission of serving the underserved students throughout the Commonwealth.”   Midway College was founded in 1847 as the Kentucky Female Orphan School and since that time the residential campus has remained the only college for women in Kentucky. Co-educational programs are offered in the evening and online in an accelerated format for working adults.

To All Our Valued Customers, Readers & Friends,

Teresa Murphy | Publisher

Americans probably began exchanging hand-made valentines in the early 1700s. In the 1840s, Esther A. Howland began selling the first mass-produced valentines in America. Howland, known as the “Mother of the Valentine,” made elaborate creations with real lace, ribbons and colorful pictures known as “scrap.” Today, according to the Greeting Card Association, an estimated 1 billion Valentine’s Day cards are sent each year, making Valentine’s Day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year. (An estimated 2.6 billion cards are sent for Christmas.) Women purchase approximately 85 percent of all valentines.

This month’s cover feature, a retirement community that provides gracious southern living in a country club comfortable setting at a low cost. Life at Brooks Place, no matter the season, is always filled with a variety of events and activities. Whether it is the Quilt Show, cruising on the river, attending History Club, going out with the lunch bunch or shopping, the list is endless.

Opera House launches piano fund-raiser Lexington Center and The Opera House Fund are seeking 88 “key” donors to fund the restoration of the classic 9’ Steinway “D” Concert Grand piano back to original factory condition. Gifted by an anonymous donor in 1976, at the time of the original Opera House renovation, the valuable instrument has served patrons at the theatre for past 37 years. It has been played by such notable Grammy Award-winning performers as Randy Newman, George Winston and Diane Schuur, among others. UK Opera Theatre, Lexington Singers, SCAPA and many other local arts organizations utilize the piano annually as well.   The cost for restoration of the Steinway Grand is estimated at $52,800. Lexington Center Corporation intends to match the funds raised through the Opera House Fund Key Donors campaign.   Donors can pay tribute to the rich legacy of the Lexington Opera House with a tax deductible donation to the Opera House Fund rang-

ing from $100 to $1500 for key sponsorship of one of the 88 keys on the Steinway piano.                                          Proceeds will go toward a complete restoration by the Steinway & Sons Factory in Astoria Queens, New York. Restoration work is expected to take place over 12 to 15 months with a completion date set for early 2014.   “Through the “88 Keys” campaign, patrons who enjoy the rich sounds of the Steinway can show their appreciation and help to insure the legacy of great musical performances at the Opera House,” Opera House Director of Performing Arts Luanne A. Franklin said. The campaign, named for the number of keys on a standard piano, gives donors a chance to “purchase” one or more keys toward the overall goal. Each “key” will be assigned a value, depending on location on the register. All donors will be publicly recognized at the end of the campaign and everyone who contributes will receive an invitation to a piano concert to

celebrate the project’s completion. “We will put all the donors’ names on a plaque that will be placed in the Opera House,” Franklin said. “Everyone who purchases a key will be recognized. This campaign gives the community a chance to be a part of the Opera House legacy and develop a sense of ownership for this wonderful community treasure.” “Each of the 88 keys on a piano keyboard is assigned a dollar value of $100 for lower and higher octaves, $200 - $800 for center octaves and $1,500 for Middle C. Donors can purchase one or more keys — even an entire octave. Or, groups can join together to make a purchase. Special thanks to Lexington Center for sponsoring the matching challenge grant and to Dr. Everett McCorvey from UK Opera Theatre for the purchase of Middle C.” “We are so fortunate to have an opera house which brings top-notch shows to our community in all areas of performing arts,” lead donor Everett McCorvey said. “Having a fully functioning piano with an excellent touch and

a beautiful sound is essential to the success of any show that incorporates the piano. The renovation of this piano is important to the success of our beloved opera house. I am proud to be part of the movement to get the piano again in tip-top shape.” Bill Owen, Lexington Center Corporations president and CEO said the “goal is to raise $26,400 in two months through this fundraising effort. All donations should be directed to the Opera House Fund and are tax deductible.  The Lexington Center Corporation will match the funds raised to cover the anticipated $52,800 cost of the restoration.” For purchase information, please visit:  www. lexingtonoperahouse/88keys and rollover each key below for availability.  Download a donor card and mail with payment to: The Opera House Fund, c/o Dean, Dorton & Ford. 106 W. Vine St. Ste. 600, Lexington, KY 40507 If you have questions, please call the Lexington Center Performing Arts Department at (859) 233-4567.

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 child. Is your child ready to participate in a 3-, 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. Points to consider when thinking about preschool readiness include: 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. For example, you may encourage your child to work with an activity while you fold a load of laundry or prepare a meal. Gradually build up to longer stretches of solo playtime. The goal is to keep yourself moderately occupied so your child can manage activities with independence.   Experience Separating If a childcare provider has cared for your child on a regular basis, your child will be better prepared to separate from you when they arrive at preschool. Children who are used to being away from their parents often make the adjustment to preschool with little effort. If your child hasn’t had many opportunities to be away from you, you might consider planning a weekly date night with your spouse or a night out with friends. This will give your child practice separating from you and will make for a smoother transition to preschool. In addition, many preschools begin the school year with orientation periods or shorter class times, allowing the child to practice separating from the parent while gradually adjusting to the classroom environment.

Group Activities Many 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. If your child is not used to group situations, 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 or Gymboree to help them become more comfortable playing with other children in a small group setting. Routine                                                                                                                                         Preschools follow a predictable schedule— circle time, playtime, snack, then home. 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. You can start by offering meals on a regular schedule and establishing a bedtime routine (bath, books, bed). You could also plan daily activities, such as a visit to the park each afternoon.

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—usually 10 to 12 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night. After considering the above points and if you observe that your child is eager to learn and explore new things, isn’t getting enough stimulation at home or daycare, or seems ready to broaden their social horizons and interact with other children, chances are… it’s the perfect time to start preschool! Michelle Walker-Campbell is head of school for Harmony Day School, a Montessori preschool program located on the corner of Old Todds Road and Mt. Tabor. Convenient to Hamburg, Andover and Richmond Road, Harmony Day School serves families with children ages 18 months through 6 years. To contact Michelle, please call 859.519.6759 or email info@ For more information about Harmony Day School, plan to attend the Open House scheduled for Sunday, February 17 from 4 to 5:30 pm.

Variety Live presents Spencers Theatre of Illusion at opera house Variety Live and the Opera House Fund present Spencers: Theatre of Illusion, February 15 and 16 at 7:30 p.m at the Lexington Opera House. Tickets start at $26 and are on sale now at the Lexington Center Ticket Office (859) 233-3535 or Spencers: Theatre of Illusion is not your run-of-the-mill magic show and the Spencers are not your typical magicians. The Spencers carry a lot of equipment in their 65-foot customized truck and trailer, but a rabbit and a top hat are not in the inventory. Kevin and Cindy Spencer, known professionally as The Spencers, are among the world’s most recognized magical performers. They have mesmerized millions of people with sold-out performances in 19 countries on five continents. And they have left a trail of accolades in their wake. They have been named Performing Arts Entertainers of the Year an amazing six times and, in 2009, were bestowed magic’s highest honor, the Merlin Award for International Magicians of the Year joining the ranks of Henning, Copperfield, and Penn & Teller. The Spencers’ production is a unique fusion of magic and illusion, humor and mystery, and persona and personality. With a background in clinical psychology, Kevin likes to say “I was going to help people’s minds but now I just mess with them.” Their show, Theatre of Illusion,stands in stark contrast to the traditional magic show. Spencer sees it not as a stage full of tricks used to fool people but as a way to inspire viewers with a sense of wonder. By blending the theatrical elements of a Broadway-style production with the high energy of a rock concert, these artists take their audience on a journey to the brink of impossibility and back again. Audience members don’t simply watch the show, but are also invited to participate in the magic. Using magic much like a storyteller uses words, Spencer fuses this family-friendly production with a gamut of emotions. And

with the skills of a master showman, he creates a world where nothing is impossible and anything can happen. Kevin Spencer has committed his life to magic both on stage and off. When he’s not working with his crew to set up a show, Spencer can be found spreading the word about the therapeutic and educational benefits of learning magic for persons with a variety of disabilities. He is widely considered the leading authority on the functional and academic benefits of the art of illusion. HEALING OF MAGIC uses simple magic tricks as a form of rehabilitative therapy. HOCUS FOCUS integrates magic tricks into the classroom as a way of motivating students in the learning process. Both projects have an international reputation with published research in leading scientific journals. Spencer received the Harry Chapin Award for Contributions to Humanity in recognition of his work in healthcare and education. A Healing of Magic Workshop will be held on Saturday, February 16 at the Lexington Convention Center. The course is fully accredited and is designed for occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants and other therapy professionals including physical, speech and recreation therapists. For registration information, visit www.                                                                 Magic is no longer merely about baffling the audience by doing something seemingly impossible. We’ve seen it all before. Magic these days is about spectacle, drama, danger, and personality. Kevin and Cindy Spencer are the masters of this new magic theatre. Entertainers come and go, but few make a lasting impression on their audience or their art. The Spencers are that rare exception! This is one show you won’t want to miss! For more information visit

Lexington Diagnostic Center hires two new radiologists

Dr. Robert Pope Lexington Diagnostic Center and OPEN MRI is pleased to announce that two musculoskeletal-trained radiologists have joined the out-patient imaging team. Dr. George Privett and the staff of Lexington Diagnostic Center & OPEN MRI are excited to introduce Dr. Robert Pope and Dr. Jason Harris to our community, patients, referring physicians and their staff. Dr. Robert Pope is a board certified radiologist fellowship trained in musculoskeletal radiology. He completed his residency at Michigan State University, and is a graduate of Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine. Pope served in the Air Force and practiced at Joint Base Balad-Air Force Theater Hospital Iraq where he was chief radiologist. He served as staff radiologist at Eglin Air Force Base where he was the director of MRI and Mammography Services. Pope is experienced in all aspects of medical imaging with a particular interest in musculoskeletal MRI and joint and epidural injections. Dr. Jason Harris is a board certified radiologist, fellowship trained in musculoskeletal radiology. He completed his radiology residency at University of Cincinnati and earned his medical degree at University of Louisville. Harris completed his musculoskeletal and interventional pain management fellowship, including epidural injections, at the Medical College of Virginia. He is experienced in all facets of radiology with a particular emphasis in musculoskeletal MRI and epidural steroid injections.

Dr. Jason Harris Pope and Harris are trained to perform lumbar epidural steroid injections and facet joint injections. Epidural injections place anti-inflammatory medicine into the epidural space to decrease inflammation of the nerve root, hopefully reducing pain in the back or legs. The epidural injection may provide permanent relief or provide pain relief for several months while the injury or cause of pain is healing. Facet joints are small joints in the spine that provide stability and help guide motion. Facet joints can become painful due to arthritis, back injury or mechanical stress. A facet joint injection delivers a steroid medication which anesthetizes the joints and blocks the pain. Lexington Diagnostic Center & OPEN MRI is an out-patient imaging facility specializing in high-field MRI, OPEN MRI, ultrasound, CT, Dexa (osteoporosis screening), X-ray and nuclear medicine tests. Lexington Diagnostic Center has been offering high quality imaging services since 1988. We are on the cutting edge of medical imaging and continue to offer great service at a fraction of the cost of hospital-based facilities. Lexington Diagnostic Center is known as “the patientfriendly imaging center with wide open spaces.� The kind, friendly staff is focused on providing excellent service to patients and their families. To learn more about services provided at LDC go to www.LexingtonDiagnostic. com or look for us on these social media websites Facebook, YouTube, Google+ and Linkdin.

Duchess of Cornwall’s charity comes to U.S. The Brooke, an international equine charity that also helps people, has been assisting working animals (horses, donkeys and mules) and their owners in developing countries for nearly 80 years. Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Cornwall, wife of Britain’s heir to the throne, Prince Charles, is the organization’s president. Headquartered in London, England, the Brooke has selected Lexington as the location for its base in the United States. Petra Ingram, CEO of the Brooke, said, “the purpose of the American Friends of the Brooke will be to support the world-wide programs of the Brooke in alleviating the suffering of working equines, thus improving the lives of the families who need them.” Americans have a close affinity with horses and are exceedingly generous to the poor, so we believe this will be an excellent partnership,” she said. “We considered a number of cities for our U.S. office: Washington, D.C., Palm Beach, New York, Los Angeles, and others, but in the end, it was the Horse Capital of the World, Lexington, Kentucky, that we chose.” Currently serving her second term as president, Her Royal Highness said “having seen for myself the wonderful work the Brooke does in their clinic in Cairo and Pakistan to help the suffering of working animals, it makes me incredibly proud to be the president of this unique charity and to follow its course with enormous interest.” It is estimated that 50 million working animals are suffering from exhaustion, dehydration, malnutrition, and abuse as a result of excessive workloads and limited animal health services in developing countries.

million people. Their goal is to double that number by 2016. To do this, the Brooke is extending its outreach into North America for awareness, partnership and support. American Friends of the Brooke, a 501(c)3 charitable organization, is poised to generate that support. “Over the next few years the Brooke will be expanding into new countries, to bring it closer to achieving its goal of improving the welfare of two million animals each year. This is a hugely important step,” her Royal Highness said.

These animals are a lifeline to countless poor communities.

The Brooke has more than 800 staff around the world, led by an impressive board of trustees and assisted by an international group of advisors, patrons and ambassadors that include Her Royal Highness Princess Alia bint Al Hussein of Jordan; Sir Peter O’Sullevan, former BBC racing commentator; David Jones, DVM, director of the North Carolina Zoo and president of the American Friends of the Brooke; and Major Richard Waygood (international three-day event competitor and Chef d’Equipe to British equestrian teams).

The Brooke is currently working in Egypt, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Kenya, Ethiopia, Nepal, Senegal, Jordan, and Guatemala, and last year the Brooke reached approximately 1.1 million animals, benefitting six

The Brooke has recently hired a fund-raising development manager, Cindy Rullman, who will coordinate the fund-raising efforts for American Friends of the Brooke in the United States.

They endure grueling, back-breaking labor under the harshest of physical and environmental conditions, on behalf of the working poor, whose very lives are inextricably tied to them in order to earn a living and support their families.

Driving Miss Daisy at the Woodford Theatre

babes in arms are not permitted at Broad-

By Alfred Uhry. The place is the Deep South, the time 1948, just prior to the civil rights movement. Having recently demolished another car, Daisy Werthan, a rich, sharp-tongued widow of seventy-two, is informed by her son, Boolie, that she must now rely on the services of a chauffeur. Hoke is a thoughtful, unemployed black man, and Miss Daisy immediately regards him with disdain. He, in turn, is not impressed with her patronizing tone and latent prejudice. In a series of absorbing scenes spanning 25 years, the two, despite their mutual differences, grow ever closer to, and more dependent on each other. Slowly and steadily the dignified, good-natured Hoke breaks down her stern defenses, and it becomes movingly clear they have come to realize they have more in common than they ever believed possible – and that times and circumstances would ever allow them to publicly admit.
