6. Drain the tub & refill it with cold water. 7. Run the jets for another 10 minutes as a rinse. 8. Drain the tub and wipe clean with a soft cloth. Repeat cleaning as necessary.

National College recently hosted the Bluegrass Reentry Council’s ‘BRC Information Panel Discussion at the Hamburg campus. The BRC is dedicated to providing a wide variety of services to previously incarcerated individuals so they may have a smooth transition back into society. The panel members provided information on job availability, hiring parameters, GED information, adult education offerings in the community, housing and many other much-needed services which the ex-offenders need to facilitate their successful re-entry into the community. There were nearly 50 attendees from area social service agencies, counseling center, corporations and armed forces facilities. Photo by Earlane Cox

ave a wonderful Mother’s Day and be sure to check out what’s new @ TheMotherStucker!

This freshly pressed blog is updated daily with the best hints and latest buzz in household cleaning and home organization. Surely you have heard the adage — housework is something you do that nobody notices until you don’t do it. Not @TheMotherStucker! Your efforts will certainly be recognized when you check out product trials, video tutorials, free give-aways, interactive polls and upcoming events @TheMotherStucker. Check out the May Updates @TheMotherStucker including: ... 8 Steps to a Sparkly Jetted Tub 1. Check manufacturer instructions and cleaner labels to make sure the cleaners won’t hurt your tub. 2. Fill the tub approximately 3 inches above the highest jets with hot water. 3. Add 1/4 cup of a low-foaming disinfectant (such as powdered dishwasher detergent) to the water. Calgonite or Cascade powder are good choices. 4. Add 1/2 cup of household bleach to the water. If bleach is not advised, use 1 cup of white vinegar instead. 5. Run the jets for 10-15 minutes. Set the jets to the highest pressure.

... Product Trial Ready to Use Orange Plus is a natural orange oil all-purpose cleaner from Earth Friendly Products. Safe to use on any washable surface, I love the results on my oven top and hood, countertops, tile & sinks. The product is not tested on animals and is free of 1, 4 Dioxane, Formaldehyde, Petrochemicals, GMO’s, Phosphates, Chlorine and Ammonia. It is 100 percent biodegradable, pH neutral. Get it at Earth Friendly Products/For Love of the Planet www. efpclean.coom,, or 1-630-5951900 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. central time, M-F. ... HOT Car Care Tips 1. Freshen up – To rid stale odors from the ventilation ducts, try spraying odor eliminator into the system’s air intake, which is usually located at the base of the windshield. Then run the air conditioner full blast for at least 10 minutes. 2. Use baby wipes on car dashboards; they clean like new and leave an anti-static layer. 3. For detail cleaning on the dashboard, the best thing to use is a soft paintbrush. It gets into all the grooves . 4. A big old soft sock makes a perfect hand mitt for buffing the wax on your car. 5. When your windshield starts blurring when you turn the wipers on, dampen a cloth or rag with some full-strength white vinegar and run it down the full length of each blade once or twice. Disclaimer: Christy Stucker could be the most reluctant and unmotivated cleaner on the planet. The only reason you will ever see her scrubbing or sweeping is when company is expected at The Stucker homestead. Therefore TheMotherStucker needs cleaning products that effectively unsoil all the filthy atrocities committed by her pre-teen, toddler, frenchie pug and handsome hubby. Speaking of looking good, Christy is a former Mrs. Kentucky America (2009) and Mrs. U.S. of A Globe (2005). You should see the mess she leaves on the bathroom counter after a face make-up application. Enjoy the blog and know Christy continues to do the dirty work so you can find the best cleaning products available! &

The Hamburg Journal is happy to provide the following business-related news from our area: Courtyard South Hamburg in completes major lobby renovation

and sports headlines. Guests can navigate using the touch-screen to find restaurants, local attractions and directions.

Marriott International, Inc. (NYSE:MAR) announced that the 90-room Courtyard by Marriott South located at 1951 Pleasant Ridge Drive in Lexington has completed a major renovation of its lobby. The hotel now features the brand’s new refreshing business lobby concept, designed to give travelers the flexibility to work and socialize however they choose while on the road.

Guests can connect to free WiFi and there are ample electrical outlets throughout the lobby to power digital devices. The enlarged business library features several complimentary computer terminals along with a free printer and separate computer stations dedicated to printing airline boarding passes and checking flight status.

“From day one, Courtyard has prided itself as a brand that listens to what travelers want from a hotel,” said Janis Milham, vice-president, Global Brand manager, Courtyard by Marriott. “Guests want more control and choice with services and amenities that create a healthy balance between working and relaxing. We redefined the Courtyard lobby so it invites guests to get out of their rooms to work, socialize or for entertainment, whether traveling alone or with colleagues.” The open, bright and contemporary new Courtyard hotel lobby welcomes guests with vivid contrasting colors, including blue, green, orange and red. The traditional front desk is replaced with separate welcome pedestals to create more personal and private interactions when guests check in. This will allow staff to move about to show guests the lobby features and provide assistance. Flexible seating options range from a communal table in the middle of the action to more private media booths with high-definition televisions, to a more intimate, semi-enclosed lounge area. A signature element of the new lobby is the exclusive GoBoard® technology, a 52-inch LCD touch-screen packed with local information, maps, weather, news, business

Dining has been completely redesigned with The Bistro – Eat. Drink.

The MarketTM ­— a 24/7 shop for snacks, beverages and sundries — is always open for late-night cravings or the toothpaste you forgot to pack. Green has been Courtyard’s signature color since Marriott launched the brand 25 years ago. Now it is even greener with the introduction of a guest recycling program for the environment. Receptacles for paper, glass, plastic and metal will be conveniently located by side exits.
