Former Scholar Athlete Achieves Olympic Dreams
f you watch the Olympic Games this summer, you’ll probably hear about Lee Kiefer, the U.S. fencer from The Lexington School and Dunbar High. Astute readers will remember Lee as our Scholar Athlete in June 2009 when she was a 5-foot-4, 105-pound ninth-grader with greatness stamped all over her. Already she had competed halfway across Europe. She heads to London this summer as the No. 1 Lee Kiefer fencer in

Back To School
::: Homework Pointers :::
hen school starts this month, many families will exchange the carefree routines of summer with busy schedules of school, sports, homework and bedtimes. Many parents will tell you that homework is the most stressful part of that schedule, both for them and for their kids. While there is much debate about the effectiveness of homework in education, the fact is that most students will be assigned homework throughout the school year. And their grades are often dependent on how well they complete it. The challenge for parents becomes how to keep school assignments from dominating their family’s schedules while ensuring that their kids get the work done. The following comes from author Peg Dawson, who outlined suggestions for the National Association of School Psychologists publication. These steps include advice from Lesley Iwinski, director of Growing Peaceful Families in Lexington.
Find a location in the house where homework will be done. There is no right or wrong location to do homework. For some kids, a desk in their bedroom is ideal. For others, the toys and books in their room will be too much of a distraction, so the dining room table becomes the study hall. Lesley Iwinski, director of Growing Peaceful Families, recommends allowing kids to choose their own spot. “Give them as much choice as possible,” she said. “Even if you don’t agree with them, try their idea for a week and evaluate how it worked at the end.”
Set up a homework center. Make sure that the spot for doing homework is kept clear of clutter so that your kids don’t have to do extra work before they start their assignments. Have them fill a basket with homework essentials like pencils, pens, markers, rulers, calculators, ruled and graph paper. Keep this close to the homework spot.
Establish a homework time. Your kids should get used to doing homework at the same time each day, but realize that for each child that time will be different. For some, right after school is the best
Most preventable accidents happen at home. Take a virtual home tour with your children to find out what dangers may be hidden where you live. Visit MySafeHome.org, an online tool designed to provide families with simple steps to reduce dangers in their homes. SIMPLE HOME SAFETY TIPS: • Have working smoke detectors on every level in your home and in all bedrooms. • Lock up all poisons. • Look for choking hazards, especially if young children live in or visit your home. • Make sure your water heater is set no higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. • Actively supervise children while they are swimming or playing outdoors.

time. For others, a snack and a break are necessary before they can settle down. Some might prefer waiting until after dinner to allow play time with friends in the afternoon. You’ll need to consider the rhythm of your family as well as the rhythm of your neighborhood when choosing a time. Does everyone else on your street play outside after school and settle down to work after dinner? You may want to embrace that schedule, too. Iwinski points out that it’s important to sync your calendar with your child’s. Note dental appointments and soccer practices in your child’s planner so they know which days they need to work around commitments.
Establish a homework routine. When your children are young, sit down with them at the beginning of each homework session and work out a schedule. Decide which assignments will take the longest, which need to be done first, and which will require parental help. “Make it a cooperative venture,” Iwinski said. Teach your kids to make executive decisions and they’ll soon be able to handle their own homework strategies. Growing Peaceful Families will host a “Homework Without Hassles” workshop for parents on August 16 from 10 a.m.-noon. To register call 333-3053 or visit www. growingpeacefulfamilies.com. Y

LearningRx: Finding Solutions in Classroom
he breaking point for Chrisey Hillgen of Winchester arrived when her 9-year-old daughter returned from another day of struggle at school and said through tears, “Mommy, there’s something else going on with me.” School had always been a struggle for Amaya, a challenge her teachers attributed to issues with her speech. For five years, Amaya has received treatment from a
there,” she said. “Aaron was open and patient. I bombarded him with questions and he answered them all.” After an evaluation of Amaya, Zink started her in March on a 24-week program with a LearningRx trainer, who was selected to match Amaya and her personality. “That made a difference because the trainer went above and beyond, and was very accessible,” Chrisey said.
By the end of the school year, she transformed her D’s and F into all A’s and one B – good enough for the honor roll. speech therapist. And for the past year, she worked with a tutor. Still, her report card was dotted with D’s and even an F. Those grades came despite her prodigious work ethic. She routinely wrestled with her homework for four or five hours a night on assignments that should have taken 30 minutes. The symptoms were obvious – she struggled with reading and was easily distracted. The whole family had grown exasperated and frustrated. That’s when Chrisey hit the Internet and learned about LearningRx, a national “brain training” program that helps build cognitive skills. Unlike tutoring, brain training actually improves a person’s IQ through building neural pathways to make the brain work faster and more efficiently. Impressed, Chrisey met with Aaron Zink, Director of LearningRx in Lexington. “I felt very comfortable about the environment
For the first 12 weeks, Amaya worked for an hour three times a week with her trainer and performed tasks at home. The second half of the treatment included an hour with the trainer once a week and more tasks at home. Almost immediately, Amaya showed progress. Her reading and focus improved, and her ability to avoid distractions became a strength. By the end of the school year, she transformed her D’s and F into all A’s and one B – good enough for the honor roll. No more tears for Amaya. “Her attitude has really improved and she has more confidence now,” Chrisey said. “She now wants to go to school, and she volunteered to join a summer book club, which is a big accomplishment. “We are very excited and gratified by her progress, and we would recommend LearningRx to others.” Y

Global Meets Local at Ladybug Landing
ew streets in Lexington proclaim “Local” as distinctively as Southland Drive, home to an array of small businesses – which is one reason Sarah Meyers is proud to call Southland home for her business. Meyers opened Ladybug Landing, an upscale children’s and maternity consignment boutique, five years ago. She moved to Southland Drive in 2010. “I couldn’t wait to move here. Everybody knows where Southland Drive is, and this has been a great location for us,” she said. While thriving in its hyper-local setting, Ladybug Landing boasts a regional, even national reach. Customers come from Lexington and all over Eastern and Central Kentucky. They are drawn by brand name clothing, unavailable anywhere else in town. Meyers has connections with shop owners all over the country, including as far away as Denver. And she works with nearly 2,000 consignors who supply the store with new and like-new designer clothes for children up through size 16. Brand names include such labels as Anavini, Bailey Boys, Papo d’Anjo, Lola et Moi, Jean Bourget, La Jenns, Potato Saks, E-Land, Matilda Jane, Persnickety, Haute Baby, Oilily. Plus, Olive Juice, Chabre, Orient Expressed, Lilly Pulitzer, Chez Ami, Peaches & Cream. Ladybug Landing carries high-end maternity brands such as Isabella Oliver,
A Pea in the Pod, Maternal America, Gap and more. Ladybug Landing also carries Melissa and Doug toys, plus a selection of developmental puzzles for young children. Meyers has a business degree from Eastern Kentucky University and worked in corporate accounting for 17 years before launching her own boutique. While her business background has been helpful, the inspiration for the store came from being a mom. She has three school-aged children. “I always loved high-end clothing and the store idea came from frustrations with trying to find designer clothes at economical prices,” she said. “I started the store to fill a niche in Lexington.” And the community has responded. When she moved to Southland Drive, the store’s space doubled to 6,000 square feet – 4,500 of it floor space. Her staff has grown to eight part-time employees, and the store is open seven days a week (Mon-Fri., 10-8; Sat., 10-5; Sun., noon-5.) August is a particularly busy month, landing in the middle of the fall season and marked by back-to-school shopping. Customers can find jeans, sweaters, shoes, coats, button down shirts, blouses, and snow bibs, snow jackets and boots in colder weather. The store is designed in a boutique style with first-class amenities, including spacious dressing rooms with seating for
Ladybug Landing, owned by Sarah Meyers, is a high-end consignment boutique on Southland Drive. Mom, a waiting area for Dad and a fully stocked changing table for baby. One of the hallmarks of the store is the children’s play room, whimsically decorated and featuring a Brio train set. “Customers love the play room because they can shop while their children play,” Meyers said. Much of the furniture in the store was built by Sarah’s husband, John, a business attorney who is an accomplished carpenter and craftsman. It all adds up to a thriving family business that has connected with a loyal, cost-conscious customer base. “These have been hard economic times and ours is the rare business that thrives in a down economy,” Meyers said. “A lot of people are struggling. I feel blessed that people have found the store and appreciate it.” Y

Mission of Hope
Backpack Program Key to Busting Poverty in Appalachia
ission of Hope, a Christian ministry that serves the neediest families in Appalachia, embraces an ambitious mandate – reverse the cycle of poverty that has spanned generations in rural Kentucky and Tennessee. MOH’s plan can be summarized in one word – education. “We know that education is essential for the children of Appalachia,” said Emmette Thompson, MOH’s executive director. “Too many of them don’t even finish high school. “We encourage children to get a high school degree and perhaps even a college education.” MOH does more than simply encourage. At the start of each school year for the past 14 years, Mission of Hope and its small army of volunteers target school children in some of the nation’s poorest communities for its Back to School Backpack Program. As part of the program, MOH has added a “Sixth Graders Pledge to Graduate High School.” Additionally, this school year marks the fourth installment of the Mission of Hope Scholars program, in which up to 12 seniors from school districts that MOH serves are awarded $2,500 scholarships and a laptop to attend college. Currently, there are 33 active scholars in the program and the first scholar graduated in May. But it all starts with the Back to School 16 | www.lexingtonfamily.com
Backpack Program, now in its 15th year. MOH will travel this month to 27 schools – 15 of them in Kentucky – to help more than 10,000 kids start the school year with a backpack full of school supplies. The backpacks include pencils, pens, crayons, folders, scissors, glue sticks and hygiene products. At each school, a team of volunteers sets up a Back to School “store.” Each volunteer will take a child by the hand and help him or her fill up a backpack with school materials. It’s a magical day for the children, whose smiling faces reflect their appreciation. It’s also a special day for the volunteers. Shirley Plant, currently MOH’s operations manager, started as a volunteer 14 years ago and has participated in dozens of Back to School days. “It’s a wonderful day for the children, one of the best days the kids have,” she said. “They’re so excited and always ask you, ‘Are you coming back?’ “You talk to them about their summer. Not all the stories are good ones, but they share with you.
“And you leave with such a wonderful, warm feeling. You get a smile out of these children and it makes it all worthwhile.” This month, Lexington Family Magazine staff and Versailles Baptist Church volunteers will travel to Letcher Elementary School in the town of Blackey in southeastern Kentucky for a Back to School event. Editor John Lynch previously participated in the MOH Christmas Campaign at a school in Owsley County and is eager to help again. “Mission of Hope’s goal to support education by helping children start the school year right is an effort that anyone with a heart can appreciate,” he said. “We hope that in our small way we can make a difference for these children.” Mission of Hope collects supplies all year at its warehouse in Knoxville and relies on cash donations to cover the $100,000 cost of the program. “Again as in past years, we have stepped out on faith that God will provide the resources we need,” Thompson said. “For many students this is the only opportunity they ever get to ‘shop’ for their own supplies. “We truly could not accomplish our programs without the dedication and compassionate support of our friends who help us spread the Hope.” Y

For 15 years, Music Institute Has Served All Students Regardless of Age or Ability to Pay By John Lynch
his is a big year for school anniversaries for musician Mylinda Dockery. In early March, she traveled to Troy, North Carolina to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Trinity Music Academy, a non-profit community music school she helped to co-found. Two decades after its start, it has provided music education to thousands in the community. “It was wonderful to be a part of the celebration and see how the school has grown,” Dockery said. This year also marks the 15th anniversary of the Music Institute of Lexington, a similar school that Dockery founded and has run ever since. Starting as a virtual stranger in Lexington, she launched the school from the basement of her home. In the past 15 years, she has shepherded it into a dynamic music center located at Trinity Hill United Methodist Church and Chapel Hill Presbyterian Church on Tates Creek Road. The school has more than 750 students, taught by a professional staff of 27 instructors. In many ways, the Music Institute is like any other music school – it offers individual and group lessons, starting with early childhood classes and embracing classical, jazz, blues and rock. Students perform recitals, take master classes and play in competitions and music festivals. But in one important way, the Music Institute
20 | www.lexingtonfamily.com
is unique to Central Kentucky – the school offers music lessons to all students, regardless of age, race, ability or financial resources. Currently, 50% of all students receive scholarships paid for in part by grants and fund-raising. The average at most community arts schools is 18-20%. The school also offers music classes to students with special needs through its music therapy program.
Aided by Grants
Dockery’s commitment to serving the community is the hallmark of the school even though it placed a financial strain on the Institute at the outset. But the Institute has received grants over the years from a variety of local and national sources, including Kentucky State Arts Council, Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels, Toyota, Keeneland, Junior League of Lexington, W. Paul & Lucille Little Foundation, Fifth/Third Bank. Plus, National Guild of Community Arts Education, Foundation for Music Based Learning, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Knight Foundation. In 2001, private donors Tom and Clara Dupree of Lexington “saved the school,” according to Dockery, with their generous and continued support. “It was a struggle in the beginning, but the school has grown so much and we’ve had so much help along the way,” Dockery said. “Music can heal people’s souls and spirits so it’s so important to bring it to the whole community. You see so many children who just want to touch the instruments. “Giving them opportunity touches my heartstrings. You can truly strengthen a community through the power of music.” For economically challenged families, the Institute serves as a lifeline to music education.
“We don’t have a lot of money for private lessons,” said Tressa Rowe, who currently has four children taking violin lessons. “With a large family, the cost would be astronomical. But because of the scholarships we’ve been able to take lessons for the past eight years.” Comments like that gratify Dockery as does the praise from families who pay for lessons. Melissa Karrer’s 6-year-old son Jacob has been taking guitar lessons with instructor Seith Miller for six months. “We are so pleased with what he’s been able to learn. We’re looking forward to seeing his love for music and the guitar grow in the time to come.”
Along with guitar, piano and violin, the Institute offers lessons in virtually every instrument from cello and clarinet to oboe and organ, embracing woodwinds, horns and percussion. The school also encompasses the life span. Children as young as 6 months start in the early childhood program based on Musikgarten. And the rapidly growing cohort of senior players includes an 84-year-old. Emerging as one of its most popular programs is Piano for Pleasure, launched last year for those 60 and older through a grant from the MetLife Foundation. The program started with 24 students, but this year Dockery expects more than 100 for the fall semester. After its humble origins, the Music Institute envisions a vibrant future. “The goals when we started were to serve the community by offering high quality music lessons for all and to serve local artists by offering a place to teach and a practice space,” Dockery said. “The community has embraced our mission and helped to make this possible.” Y

2012 BACK - TO - SCHOOL
We Need Your Help! This Year More Than Ever Parents want their children to have everything they need for a good education, but in rural Appalachia this privilege is sometimes an impossibility. In 1998, the Mission of Hope took on the yearly ministry of helping to provide school supplies to children living in povertystricken areas of rural Kentucky. Working through Elementary Schools with very high Free Lunch percentages, the Mission of Hope gathers together backpacks, glue, scissors, crayons, rulers, protractors, spiral notebooks, pens and pencils, so needy children can start the new school year with the necessary supplies. The Mission of Hope needs your help with its 2012 Backto-School Campaign. We will assist more than 10,000 Appalachian Children this year. Will you please help us help those in need? If you would like to sponsor one or more children, make your tax-deductible check to Mission of Hope and send it to: Mission of Hope 2901 Richmond Road #130 Box 205 Lexington, KY 40509 The Mission of Hope is an officially licensed 501c3 non-profit ministry.

Sts. Peter & Paul School Continued from Page 14 State & Federal Programs at Fayette County Public Schools. After two decades in public schools, why switch to a private school? “Practically, it probably makes more sense to stay with public schools, but my heart was saying that this is the right time and place,” she said. “I believe that education must be fun, experience-based with lots of hands-on learning. Kids don’t have to sit in desks all day. “I’m impressed with the passion that people here have about the education of their kids, and everybody has high expectations. It’s a close-knit family, and there’s a bonding that goes on here. “The school is the good news downtown.” Key to that good news is the arts program. The renovation upgraded all the classrooms while maintaining the architectural integrity of the original building. Classrooms feature 14-foot ceilings and 8-foot windows. The arts wing includes the theatre plus drama, music and visual arts classrooms in addition to the library, computer lab and a Spanish room. Students start Spanish in first grade. The arts emphasis will only enhance the school’s already strong academics, school officials say. In 2006, SPPS was named a Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Dept. of Education, and three years ago it was one of only 12 Catholic schools in the nation to receive a Catholic Schools for Tomorrow award. A continued bright future is the goal, according to Miller, who has played an integral role in envisioning, adopting and fulfilling the school’s art-based vision. “We have realized our vision with the renovation of the school despite the 2008 financial meltdown,” Miller said. “We’re proud that what seemed to be impossible to many has become a reality. “We plan to continue to be good stewards, to fulfill that vision and maintain the academic traditions of a strong, faith-based Catholic school education.” Y required. 170 N.

Mourning the Loss of a Parent
hether you have a good, bad or indifferent relationship with your mother and father, most people still love their parents deeply. Sadly, at some point, you will likely face the reality of your parent’s death. It is important that you take time to mourn the loss of this significant person in your life. Mourning allows you to express your thoughts and feelings about death. Your relationship and the circumstances of the death will determine how you travel your journey through grief. Grief is unique for everyone. Alan D. Wolfelt, Ph.D., C.T. and internationally noted author, educator and grief counselor advises, “Don’t try to compare your experience with that of other people or adopt assumptions about just how long your grief should last. “Consider taking a ‘one-day-at-a-time’ approach that allows you to grieve at your own pace.” According to Dr. Wolfelt, while everyone has unique feelings about the
death of a parent, some of the more common emotions include: t Sadness: It’s natural to feel sad, so allow yourself to embrace your pain. t Relief: If your parent was sick before the death, you may feel relieved when death comes, knowing the suffering has ended. t Anger: The death of your parent may bring unresolved anger and painful feelings to the surface. Or you may feel angry because a loving relationship in your life has prematurely ended. t Guilt: You may wish you had said things that went unsaid – or wish you could take back hurtful things you did say. You also may regret not spending more time with your parent. Guilt and regret can be normal responses to the death of your mother or father. As strange as some of these emotions may seem, they are normal and healthy. Allowing yourself to feel whatever emerges without judgment is part of the mourning process.
Dr. Wolfelt offers these tips to help you along your grief journey: w Recognize that the death has an impact on your entire family. w Each person in the family had a unique relationship with your parent, so each will mourn the loss uniquely. w Reach out to others for support. w Be tolerant of your physical and emotional limits. w Embrace your spirituality. w Treasure your memories. w Move toward your grief and heal. If you need help coping with your grief, Milward Funeral Directors offers two monthly support groups at 6:30 p.m. – Third Monday at 391 Southland Drive – Third Tuesday at 1509 Trent Boulevard Milward Funeral Directors, in collaboration with Hospice of the Bluegrass, will host Dr. Alan Wolfelt for its annual Holiday Hope program at the Celebration Center of Lexington, 1509 Trent Boulevard, Monday, Nov. 12 from 7-9 p.m. Info: 272-3414.

Note: Most schools are peanut-free, so check labels before purchasing items to pack in your child’s lunch. t Avoid buying soda and other sugary drinks.

Vision Therapy Goes Beyond Eyesight
o you know someone who fits this scenario? Optometrists have assured you that your child’s eyesight is normal, and yet he complains of headaches, has difficulty seeing the board in class, has a short attention span with schoolwork and avoids looking at the page when it comes time to read. You’ve tried glasses. You’ve even tried ADHD medication. You’ve spent countless hours helping him with homework, but those sessions last far too long and routinely end in a battle. You’re stymied – and the whole family is frustrated. Teachers suggest that your child is a slow learner or a low achiever. Dr. Rick Graebe Family Eyecare Associates and Children’s Vision and Learning Center 105 Crossfield Drive, Versailles www.myfamilyvision.com / 859.879.3665.
“Vision Therapy deals with the eyes, brain and body, and how they work together.” – Dr. Rick Graebe But you know your child better than anyone, and he is bright, curious about life and full of eagerness to learn. What’s wrong? The situation feels hopeless. Dr. Rick Graebe, a behavioral optometrist in Versailles, has witnessed this scenario many times in his practice. Over the years, Graebe has restored hope for families through a prescription of Vision Therapy that addresses not merely vision – farsightedness, nearsightedness, etc. – but the entire visual system. Vision Therapy is a kind of a physical therapy for the eyes, mind and body. If an initial exam shows that a child has problems with either visual efficiency (how well the eyes and muscles function) or vision processing (how well the brain understands
information the eyes transmit), the child embarks on a program of sequenced activities. And the activities are fun for children. They play pencil and puzzle games, bounce and handle balls, and perform other activities that involve the body. “Most eye doctors deal with just eyesight,” Dr. Graebe explains. “Vision Therapy deals with the eyes, brain and body, and how they work together.” Does Vision Therapy work? The walls of Dr. Graebe’s office are covered with testimonials from grateful parents and children, who have seen their school performance improve by as much as three years. “What gratifies me, what makes me excited about coming to work, is the fact that we change lives,” Dr. Graebe said. “It’s an awesome feeling!” Y
Is your child having a hard time in school? Give us a call to learn about this month’s free Vision Therapy workshop!
Many kids are misdiagnosed with ADHD or a learning disability, when the actual problem is vision-related. Even with 20/20 vision, the eyes may not work together. This causes headaches, fatigue, and lack of concentration. Sound familiar? Some doctors would suggest medicating your child. Perhaps a better option is a breakthrough treatment called Vision Therapy. As one of only five board certified Vision Therapy practices in Kentucky, Family Eyecare Associates has helped many children succeed in school, without the need for glasses or unnecessary medication.

HPV Vaccine Now Recommended for Boys
s of this year, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that boys, as well as girls, should now be vaccinated against human papillomavirus. The HPV vaccine has been recommended for females since 2007 and permitted in males since 2010. Human papillomaviruses are a family of viruses that can cause both benign growths (such as genital warts) and cancers. Often seen in adolescents and young adults, they are the most common sexually transmitted viruses in the U.S. There are about 6 million cases of HPV infection in the U.S. each year. Up to 10 million adolescents and young adults are infected with HPV at any given time. Most HPV infections resolve without complications within two years and are asymptomatic. However, certain types of HPV cause most cervical and anal cancers in females HPV also causes a large proportion of mouth and pharynx cancers, anal cancers and penile cancers in males. In fact, two strains of HPV cause approximately 15,000 cases of cancer in females and 7,000 cases in males each year in the U.S. Two HPV vaccines have been approved to help prevent the majority of these cancers in females, and one has been approved to do the same for
males. The one approved for males also will help prevent most cases of genital warts for both genders. No vaccine will prevent all cases of these cancers, nor will the male vaccine prevent all cases of genital warts. The HPV vaccine is given as a series of three shots. It is recommended that the series be given to both genders at 11-12 years of age – before they become sexually active and exposed to HPV. The highest protective antibody response to the vaccine is seen in children 9-15 years old, though the series can be given to both genders between 9-26 years of age. Side effects of the HPV vaccine include pain at the injection site, fever, dizziness and nausea. Fainting also occurs sometimes, although this tends to be a side effect of adolescent immunizations in general. Cervical cancer is a serious disease in the U.S. – more than 4,000 women die of it each year. That is 4,000 too many. A vaccine that can prevent the majority of these deaths is a good thing. Immunizing males will help protect females from getting these cancers. Immunizing females will also help protect males from those cancers that HPV can cause. Y

Scholar Athlete of the Month Versatility Is the Name of Jamie’s Game

he quiet, unassuming demeanor of 14-year-old Jamie Smith belies the notable resume she has amassed in her short academic, musical and athletic careers. A ninth-grader-to-be at The Academy at Henry Clay High, Jamie was a 4.0 student in the gifted and talented program at Winburn Middle School. In seventh-grade, she was a Duke University TIP qualifier. In middle school, she took Algebra II and will enroll in a pre-calculus class at Henry Clay. She was accepted into the Math Science Magnet Program at Dunbar High but chose to attend Henry Clay instead. She also excels in history and compiled a state championship exhibit with her classmate Neha Kadambi. The project was titled “Fight Without a War: India’s Revolutionary Road to Independence.” Over the course of their research, they interviewed a UK history professor and Neha’s grandparents, who participated in India’s independence movement. After winning the state title in Frankfort in May, the girls qualified for the National History Day competition in June at the University of Maryland, where they placed ninth among nearly 100 national qualifiers. They also won the George Washington Leadership Award, which included a $500 cash prize for each of them. Who says education doesn’t pay? Jamie may seem reserved, but at the Ohavay Zion Synagogue she
reads and writes Hebrew, and for the past two years has routinely led the congregation in a 90-minute service in Hebrew. Jamie is also musical, playing flute, piccolo, and alto and tenor sax. She was a member of the Winburn concert and jazz bands, was named the outstanding musician in eighth grade and was selected to the Fayette County Honor Band. She plans to play in the Henry Clay concert band and audition for the school jazz band. Already, she has participated at Henry Clay – earning a spot on the school’s swim team. As an eighth grader, she was the city champ in the 500 freestyle and placed third in the 200 individual medley. At the Regional meet, she placed eighth in the 500, ninth in the 200 medley and qualified for the state meet. A member of the Lexington Dolphins, Jamie follows a grueling practice regime. Six days a week this summer, she arises at 5:50 a.m. for two-hour practices that begin at 6:30. And she actually enjoys practice. “I like being in the pool, and practice is fun. I love it,” she said. She also thrives on competition, but again in her low-key way, which is the key to her success as a distance swimmer. Instead of flash and dash, she can sustain speed over the long haul. Said Di Sobel, her mother: “Just like with academics, she is determined, driven and very focused.” Y
