Harmony Day School expands to include new programs Harmony Day School, a Montessori program for early childhood, is accepting applications and expanding to include new and exciting educational programs for children ages 18 months through age 6. The Harmony Day School Toddler Program offers students aged 18 months through 3 years a unique beginning of self-development in a warm atmosphere of special understanding, respect and support. It fulfills the social, physical, emotional, developmental and psychological needs of each child and adheres to Montessori philosophy that encourages vocabulary development, independence and self-confidence. Through positive daily experiences and engagement with well-prepared activities, the young child gains an appreciation and respect for his environment and peers. Toilet teaching is a primary focus in this program, so students are not required to be potty trained to participate. The freedom and guidance provided in the safe and nurturing environment of the toddler classroom will be overseen by one Montessori certified teacher and a well-trained assistant. The Harmony Day School Enrichment Program will offer children, ages 3 to 6, an opportunity to experience a foreign language, a fine arts and a movement class each week.
Program offerings change each semester in order for children to fully benefit from in-depth study of each subject area. This program, offered on Friday mornings, begins at 8:40 a.m. and ends promptly at noon. A morning snack and free play session round out the morning. This program is open to all children ages 3 to 6 in the greater Lexington community. The Harmony Day School Extended Day Program is offered to children enrolled in the four-day primary program at Harmony Day School and who have birthdays on, before or just missing the Kentucky October 1 deadline. The extended day program begins at 8:40 a.m. and ends at 2:30 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays. During this time, children prepare their own meals, set their own tables, family pass their noon time meal and master lessons of grace and courtesy. They further benefit from small group and individual instruction in a small class setting with a highly trained, experienced teacher. Extended day students also attend class from 8:40 a.m. to noon Tuesdays and Thursdays. For enrollment information regarding toddler (ages 18 months to 36 months), primary (ages 3 to 6), enrichment and/or extended day Programs at Harmony Day School, please visit us on the web at www.harmonydayschool. com or call (859) 519 · 6759.
The Hamburg Journal is happy to provide the following business-related news from our area:
Art in the Gardens coming up in Frankfort The formal gardens of Liberty Hall Historic Site in downtown Frankfort will form the backdrop for the first-ever Art in the Gardens at Liberty Hall on Labor Day weekend, Sept. 1-2. The festival will feature 50 of the region’s finest artists and artisans, specially invited for the recognized quality of their work. Visitors will browse booths that offer items as diverse as ornate glass objects, playful hand-crafted dolls, and intricate scrimshaw designs. Art in the Gardens will be the ideal place to purchase a colorful silk scarf, a cutting board crafted from native woods, or a pot decorated with designs imprinted by delicate horse hair. Art in the Gardens will be a family-oriented, fun-filled weekend. Children’s art activities are planned and live music from local performers will complement the festive atmosphere. Open house tours of Liberty Hall and the adjacent Orlando Brown House are included in the $3 daily admission. Also planned are art activities in downtown Frankfort. More information for Art in the Gardens at Liberty Hall is available at the event web site at artinthegardensatlibertyhall.org. The festival also is on Facebook at www.facebook.com/pages/Art-in-the-Gardens-at-Liberty-Hall/334575026557943.
Free classes for minority, women-owned businesses The Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government will hold free classes during the month of September for women and minority-owned businesses seeking to do work with the government. A new class -- “How to do business with LFUCG, the Fayette County Public Schools and UK Facilities Management” -- has been added to the class roster on Monday, September 17. from 4-6 p.m.
National College recently held its bi-annual Community Advisory Board meeting at the Hamburg campus. The board provides local business, agency and military professionals an opportunity to network with staff and faculty members and gives them a chance to provide input on the current employment needs of the community. The board is comprised of professionals who volunteer time and assistance in pursuit of the highest level of “real-world” education and training the college can provide. Photo by Earlane Cox
“This is the first time we’ve offered a joint class of this kind. We partner with the Fayette County Public Schools and UK Facilities Management on other projects. We seek out and work with similar kinds of vendors. We thought it would be a good idea to offer this information to our vendors to increase their opportunities to find work,” said Marilyn Clark, minority business enterprise liaison for the LFUCG. “Almost all of our instructors come from outside Lexington to present these classes. We are really grateful for their dedication to the growth of minority and womenowned businesses,” said Clark.
begin at the front of the center, where LFUCG recycling trucks enter and are weighed, then pull through and dump everything they’ve picked up during the day. Once everything is dumped, a bulldozer sifts through the giant pile and removes anything that could be a danger to employees or the center’s equipment. The remaining pile gets moved through to the next phase of the process, which includes the optical sorter – a machine that uses puffs of air to separate plastic from the other materials, based on weight. Eventually, once the materials are separated, they are compacted into large bails and set out to ship.

Trash Talk “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” - The Saturday Evening Post: Vol 198 (1925) Every day 250,000 pounds of recyclable materials are dumped and processed for market at the LFUCG recycling center. This month I took a tour to learn more. After donning a safety vest, goggles and a hard hat at the LFUCG Recycling Center, I learned Lexington residents can co-mingle their recyclables in their Rosie Cart. Items accepted include: Paper Products: boxboard, e.g. cereal, cracker, cake-mix, spaghetti, etc., boxes (remove the lining); brown paper bags; catalogues; corrugated cardboard (remove any packing material); magazines; newspapers with inserts; office and school papers; phone books; unwanted mail, fliers and door hangers Cans: aerosol (hair spray, etc.- empty); aluminum soda & beer cans; steel food cans (please rinse; labels can stay on) Plastic: bottles and jugs only, e.g. soda, milk, water, juice, detergent, bleach, and fabric softener. Glass: blue, brown, clear and green bottles and jars go into the Rosie with other recyclables. Are you curious about life-after-Rosie? Find out where your recyclables end up by taking your own free tour of Lexington’s Recycling Center! Tour is appropriate for children ages 5 and up. Please wear close-toed shoes.

all smiles Bluegrass Orthodontics gets big grins from teachers and administrators; Partners in Education Program has raised over $50,000 for schools
n the summer of 2010, Bluegrass Orthodontics developed its Partners in Education program with the purpose of helping schools defray some costs by providing them with direct financial support. Since that time, the business has donated over $50,000 to local schools. “About 75 percent of our patients are school-age children, and we are keenly aware of the growing difficulties teachers and schools face securing enough funds for their needs,” said Dr. Stan Ferguson. “We have been blessed by the communities we practice in and wanted to find a way to give back.” And so began the Partners In Education Program. Since Aug. 1, 2010, Bluegrass Orthodontics has donated $100 for every patient (child or adult) who has started full braces treatment. The money has been donated each time in the patient’s name and to the patient’s school of choice. Checks are sent every month to the respective schools, Ferguson said. School administrators have been asked to direct these funds to teachers for needed classroom supplies. As of July 12, 2012, Bluegrass Orthodontics had donated $53,500 to schools in Fayette, Bourbon, Jessamine and other surrounding counties. In Hamburg alone, Liberty Elementary has received $600, and Edythe J. Hayes Middle School has received $4,100, Several school have used the donations to help stock their food pantries or for backpacks. One school put the money into an account to help less fortunate students with school supplies. Another school used the money for a child who needed an eye exam. Several schools have used the money to help with the costs of field trips for students who don’t have the money to pay.
“The response over the past two years from teachers, administrators and parents has been tremendous,” Ferguson said. “This is a quiet effort, only spread by word of mouth.” The effort may only have been by word of mouth, but the gratitude is tremendous. Thank-you notes have poured into the office. “What a surprise to open the mail and find a check for $200. Thank you so much for your generosity,” Russell Cave Elementary School Principal Betsy Rutherford said in a note. “As you know Russell Cave Elementary is located in rural Fayette County with approximately 90 percent of our students receiv-
ing free/reduced lunch services. Donations such as yours allow us to provide programs and services that some of our students would never have the opportunity to experience.” Dr. Ferguson and his business partner, Dr. Ed Tipton, have met with principals and superintendents of schools in Lexington, Nicholasville and Paris. Bluegrass Orthodontics also has offices in each of these locations, including Hamburg at 2517 Sir Barton Way. “It is our intent to continue this effort and encourage other businesses to find ways to help schools or other organizations in the communities we live and work in,” Ferguson said.

Food 4 Thought
Hayes Middle School students combine math, nutrition in program Hayes Middle School is taking a fresh new tasty approach to enhancing student achievement. Why not combine food and math? The Food 4 Thought program offers nutritional information, healthy foods, cooking lessons, shopping tips and there is no cost for the families of the students participating. The kids learn how to calculate meal costs, calculate and compare unit prices, determine calories per serving, determine recommended calories per day and many other helpful life lessons in this unique afterschool program. Parent Kaye Hughes came up with the idea after completing the Commonwealth Institute for Parent Leadership (CIPL) training last October. Although the training concluded, the real work was just beginning. The challenge was to go back to the school to design and implement a project that included three overarching goals: to improve student achievement, to involve other parents and to have a lasting impact. Improve Student Achievement: The program began with dinner and an informational meeting held in February for parents and students. Based on trend test data, one of the areas of greatest need for improvement is in math for certain subgroups of Hayes students. Jessica Berry (Ready Kentucky) and LouAnn Ramos (Prichard Committee) presented the changes to the core content standards and the new testing time-line while Mary Ellen Hunt (Hayes curriculum coach) shared the 2011 IPR data/trends with a focus on math. Hughes shared the scope of the Food 4 Thought project pilot. The program targeted kids who were recommended by teachers as needing additional help with math skills and/or who might benefit from the nutritional information and free foods prepared. Many students signed up for the program after the presentation. Seventeen students in all participated in the pilot program that spanned March and April. Involve Other Parents and Community: Volunteers supplied crock-pots of various healthy soups, whole wheat and whole grain breads, whole wheat chocolate chip cookies and strawberry parfaits while Chic-fil-A provided chicken salad sandwiches and tea. A drawing was held for door prizes: a microwave oven, a tabletop mixer, a crock-pot, a mini-food processor and many other kitchen gadgets. Several community businesses and groups supported the program financially with gift cards, kitchen appliances or monetary donations: Christian Crossroads Church, Kohl’s Department Store, Sam’s Club, Wal-Mart, Target, Good Foods Market & Café, the Hayes PTSA and the Prichard Committee donated money/gift cards while Chic-fil-A, Fazoli’s, Bed, Bath & Beyond and Peirratt’s donated either food items or appliances. Several Kohl’s associates volunteered their time to assist the students in the kitchen as well. Tates Creek High School printed the business logos on donated aprons for the students to wear while cooking.
Hayes teachers — Patti Breeden (health), Andrea Baker (consumer sciences) and Amy Hawkins (physical education) — were essential in the kitchen as were employees from the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department, the Fayette County Extension Office and God’s Pantry. Extension office and health department employees planned the lessons and the healthy meals prepared, while Mrs. Hughes shopped for the ingredients, prepped many items for the kitchen, purchased prizes/ incentives for the students and prepared the math worksheets and recipe sheets. Mrs. Audrey West (Hayes math department chair) provided guidance on the math concepts covered. Students worked out the cost per serving, total cost of the meal for his/her family and other unit rate questions in addition to having some hands-on time in the kitchen making dinners to take home each week: calzones, turkey tetrazzini, black bean and corn pitas, enchiladas, chipotle sloppy Joes and Greek pasta salad with hummus and vegetables for dipping. Week 6 was a field trip to the Kroger Marketplace on Richmond Road. Amey Herald, Kroger dietician, led the students and their parents on a nutritional tour through several departments. She explained the NuVal nutritional rating system and pointed out better, healthier options in each department. Students found it interesting to note that similar foods might have very different nutritional values depending on how the foods were processed and/or packaged. At the conclusion of the tour, students and parents were presented with a $10 pre-paid Kroger shopping card and a shopping challenge: make a nutritious and healthy meal for the family for under $10. Students shared with classmates about the meal they prepared during the final session, and door prizes were awarded for participation in the program. Lasting Impact: The students took home a folder filled with recipes from the class, nutritional information, and completed math worksheets as well as their apron, a colander, a reusable shopping bag filled with goodies and a calculator to use while shopping for the best buys. The most important take-away from the program, however, was the hands-on experiences in the kitchen, a better awareness of the definition of good nutrition and a sense of accomplishment and pride in knowing that he/she prepared dinner for the whole family. One parent shared that what her child was learning through the program is carrying over in what and how they cook at home. She was very appreciative of the program and said, “We looked forward to our Thursday meals!” The families submitted a “meal survey” each week as a way for organizers to gage the effectiveness of the program. Organizers are currently evaluating and revising the program and are planning a six-week session to begin in September followed by another sixweek session to begin in January with the hopes of enhancing the math skills and improving the eating habits of 24 more students next year. Their motto is “If you feed a student a fish, he eats for a day. If you teach a student to fish, he eats for a life-time!” Anyone interested in volunteering time or donating to this program, please contact Kaye Hughes at email@example.com.

Cones for the Cure
Graeter’s gives special ice cream flavor in hopes to cure cancer “Sometimes the best way to cure cancer is with a little cream and sugar,” said Keith Desserich, chairman of The Cure Starts Now – an international cancer charity, “and thankfully, Graeter’s once again shows their commitment to the community by funding vital research to help our children.” The Cure Starts Now and Graeter’s team up this September in their annual Cones for the Cure campaign. This two-week long campaign will take place September 10-23 at participating Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, Lexington and Louisville Graeter’s locations to help spread the word about The Cure Starts Now and its mission to find a cure for all cancers by focusing on pediatric brain cancer. As part of their continued support for The Cure Starts Now, Graeter’s will be giving
away free scoops of the best-selling Elena’s Blueberry Pie ice cream to customers two times during the month of September. Elena’s Blueberry Pie is a special flavor that was created in honor of 6-year-old Elena Desserich, the inspiration behind The Cure Starts Now. A portion of each sale of Elena’s Blueberry Pie ice cream goes directly to the charity to fund vital research in pursuit of a revolutionary “homerun” strategy. “In many ways, this is where it started,” says Chip Graeter of Graeter’s. “Almost four years ago we joined the charity with the creation of this special flavor and have been committed to the cause ever since. And this time we want to do even more.” During Cones for the Cure, guests that visit a Graeter’s store during the campaign period have the opportunity to donate a $1 or $5 “Cone for the Cure.”
Graeter’s will also offer a $15 savings booklet for every donation of $5 or more to The Cure Starts Now. The element of surpise is what makes this such a great campaign as the two free ice cream days will randomly be announced with the help of media outlets and social media. Be sure to “like” the Cones for the Cure Facebook page at www.face-
book.com/conesforthecure for the latest news about the campaign. In 2011, nearly 40,000 people participated in the campaign which generated almost $50,000 for The Cure Starts Now. To learn more about Cones for the Cure, please visit the website at www.conesforthecure.org.

In addition to being a professional life coach, I’ve also presented to general audiences speaking on various topics. For example, life transition into college, depression and wellness. Also, in the age of ‘screen’ existence, I uniquely use our equine partners and natural surroundings in the healing process; essentially we are surrounded by the naturally ‘therapeutic’ environment of Stable Meadows.” Spiers said the equine partners at Stable Meadows are an integral part of the team and they have their own unique stories of rescue. Stable Meadows is a 10-acre farm just 15 minutes away from downtown Lexington. The environment, filled with nature, creates a balance and grounded stability, Spiers said. “Being outside in nature helps to not only promote physical wellness but heightens the ‘senses’ to increase emotional exploration,” she said.

On the road again Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists of Central Ky. offers unique service to make repairs Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists of Central Kentucky (AWRSOCK) offers a unique service to its customers. The mobile wheel repair business can go to a car dealership, tire store, repair garage, detail shop, collision shop or to someone’s home to repair wheels. “We offer complete cosmetic repair — road rash, peeling paint, gouges, etc. — but AWRSOCK has the only on-site dent repair capabilities in the world,” said Carl Frey, majority owner of the business. Frey as formerly senior vice president of marketing for Valvoline Oil Company. While he is active in the AWRSOCK effort in a minor way, Frey said his son Dayna and daughter Alycia actually run the business on a day-today basis. “Repairing Alloy wheels the right way requires an artistic touch, and Dayna provides an unparalleled passion for excellence,” Frey said. “Alycia, who is an
investor and one of the most successful barbers in Lexington with a shop in Chevy Chase, provides sales and office support in her ‘spare’ time.” According to Dayna, the entire process is “unique and interesting to customers and very affordable.” Repairs are 100 percent guaranteed. In addition, AWRSOCK meets all insurance and regulatory (OSHA) requirements. Not open a year yet, AWRSOCK already boasts many prestigious car dealers, tire stores and collision shops in Lexington as customers. “We are a Golden Rule company” Dayna said. “Everyone is treated like we wish to be treated.” Alycia said many Lexington-area consumers are unaware that alloy wheel service exists and while the company is beginning to expand to all cities surrounding Lexington, they would be happy to provide anyone with trade or consumer references for work done thus far.

Non-Surgical Medical Weight Loss
eliac disease (also called celiac sprue and gluten-sensitive enteropathy) is an autoimmune inflammatory disease of the digestive tract that occurs in at least 1 in 133 Americans who are unable to tolerate foods containing gluten.
tors test the patient’s blood for the presence of intestine-attacking antibodies activated by gluten and, if those tests come back positive, they order a biopsy (or series of biopsies) to look for intestinal damage, any evidence of which confirms the diagnosis.
Gluten -- a protein found in wheat, barley, rye and possibly oats, as well as countless food products that contain those grains (like bread and pasta) -- gradually damages the intestines of people with celiac disease preventing the absorption of vitamins and minerals.
If the test comes back negative, try a glutenfree diet for a week to see if you feel better. Cutting out gluten is the most reliable way to determine if you are sensitive to the protein -and if you are sensitive, it’s the only treatment. Keep in mind that you can be gluten sensitive without having celiac disease.
Symptoms vary widely and can be mild to severe, including abdominal bloating and pain, chronic diarrhea, weight loss, gas, bone pain, muscle cramps, delayed growth and pain in the joints. People with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity usually have stomach aches, gas and diarrhea -- as do people with IBS. Celiac patients can also develop headaches, tingling, fatigue, muscle pain, skin rashes, joint pain and other symptoms, because the autoimmune attack at the root of the disease gradually erodes the wall of the intestine, leading to poor absorption of iron, folate and other nutrients that affect everything from energy to brain function. Some experts now think of gluten intolerance as a spectrum of conditions, with celiac disease on one end and, on the other, glutenrelated gastrointestinal problems that may or may not overlap. It is estimated that half of the approximately 60 million people in the U.S. who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are probably sensitive to gluten. (Gluten allergies, which are similar to other food allergies, also fall on the spectrum but affect only about 0.1 percent of the population.) If you suspect your body can’t tolerate gluten, the first thing you should do is get tested for celiac disease. Celiac disease can be definitively diagnosed using a two-step process: Doc-
A gluten-free diet means avoiding all foods that contain wheat (see the wheat allergy update below), rye, barley, and potentially oats; this includes most grain, pasta, cereal and many processed foods. Select more fruits, vegetables (fresh or frozen), lean meat and more naturally gluten-free grains like brown rice, quinoa and buckwheat. Gluten-free products are also available, but keep in mind that they are less routinely fortified with the iron and vitamins B and D that wheat products provide. And because gluten-free products do not contain preservatives, they must be stored in the refrigerator or freezer. Recommended foods: Breads or bread products made from corn, rice, soy, arrowroot, corn or potato starch, pea, potato or wholebean flour, tapioca, sago, rice, bran, cornmeal, buckwheat, millet, flax, teff, sorghum, amaranth, quinoa; hot cereals made from soy, hominy, hominy grits, brown or white rice, buckwheat oats, millet, cornmeal, quinoa flakes, rice, rice noodles and pasta. Try to omit the following: Any creamed or breaded vegetables (unless allowable ingredients are used), french fries, flavored or frozen yogurt, alcohol distilled from cereals (gin, vodka, whiskey, ale and beer), canned baked beans, commercial fruit pie fillings
and dried fruit that contains wheat, chocolate and malted milk drinks, self-basting turkey; products made with hydrolyzed vegetable protein or hydrolyzed plant protein (HVP/ HPP) made from wheat protein, which may include sauces, gravies, canned fish and other products. Check for gluten or gluten-based additives in the following products: Milk and milk products, cold cuts, frankfurters or sausage for fillers, commercial salad dressings, hot cocoa mixes, flavored instant coffee, licorice, egg-substitutes, prepared soups, condiments, sauces and seasonings, non-dairy cream substitutes and malted beverages. Wheat Allergy Note: Total avoidance of a food allergen is the only treatment proved effective for a food allergy. Almost all commercially baked goods contain wheat. Wheat may be used as an additive to thicken foods so it is very important to r<I style=”mso-bidi-font-style: normal”>ead food labels carefully. Here are a few ingredients that may contain wheat, or indicate how wheat may appear on a food label: Cereal extract, gluten, gelatinized starch, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, modified food starch, starch, vegetable gum, vegetable starch, natural flavoring. Foods to avoid: Bulgur, couscous, farina, flour*, gluten, graham flour, high protein, malted cereals, puffed wheat, red wheat flakes, rolled wheat, seitan, semolina, shredded wheat, spelt, triticale, vital gluten, wheat bran, wheat bread, wheat bread crumbs, wheat cereals, wheat flakes, wheat protein beverage, wheat protein powder, wheat starch, wheat tempeh, whole wheat berries. *Flours to avoid include: Bread, cake, durum, enriched, gluten, kamut, multigrain, soft,
