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, www.ecos.com, 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! www.TheMotherStucker.wordpress.com & MotherStucker@gmail.com

May 2012 Board of Health chooses 2012 Public Health Heroes Award winners The Lexington-Fayette County Health Department’s Board of Health has selected Vickie Blevins and Jay McChord as the 2012 Public Health Heroes. The award is given annually to individuals who have demonstrated their dedication to improving the health of Lexington residents. The awards are given each April as part of National Public Health Week (April 2-8). Blevins is the program director of Kentucky Pink Connection, a non-profit organization that helps link women to the screening, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.
