t's Spring in western Kentucky which means that the temperature swings wildly from 30 - 70 degrees in the course of a day; we have floods, tornados and storms! At the time we went to press with this issue of Purchase Area Family Magazine the flood walls had just been installed in Downtown Paducah. Which all sounds perfectly normal if you’ve lived here a few years. But, from where I sit, typing this editorial, I can see the Daffodils getting ready to bloom and the trees starting to bud. Spring is a time of renewal and beginnings. We step out of our homes after the cold of winter and we feel the warm sun. I don’t know about you, but I always find myself smiling on a sunny spring day. My Corgi’s like to roll around in the warm rays and play ball in the yard. (Too bad its still a bit muddy from all the rain we’ve had.) Time to shake off the Winter Blues and get busy in the garden! For the past few years March has been the issue when we unveil the Spring/Summer Camp and Enrichment actives Guide. This annual pull-out can be found in the center of the magazine. With a little wiggle it will separate from the staples and you can keep in on your desk or notice board. It’s a great resource guide to help you choose what the kiddos will be doing when they’re not in school. This years featured camp is West Kentucky Chess - because the popularity of chess in our region has simply exploded since 2016. In March 2018 PAFM is excited to feature the visit on this year’s One Book Read, author Karen Thompson Walker; the inaugural St. Patrick's Day Pub Crawl For A Cause, which will benefit Paducah-McCracken Habitat For Humanity; and a look at how Virtual Realty is the hottest trend in games and entertainment. As usual our calendar is packed with things to do and there’s even more events, and fun on iListwesternkentucky.com.

Introducing Four Rivers Pediatrics

o you have a family doctor? Someone you go to for your annual physical and call when you, or your kids, are sick? If you’re feeling unwell or have a minor injury on a Sunday, is your physician’s office open? Can you take your ‘tween to a pediatrician while being seen yourself at the same clinic? If your medical provider is on the staff of Four Rivers Internal Medicine and QuickCare, your answer is YES! On our cover this March are Pediatrician, Dr. Elizabeth McGregor and Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioner (APRN), Mariah Hamby. From right to left, and back to front we’re delighted to introduce their children, Charley McGregor (4), Brooks McGregor (2), Andersyn McGregor (10 months), Carter Hamby (4), Ellie Hamby (20 months), and Anna Kate Hamby (6 months). These two moms are excited to be a part of the innovative Family Practice at Four Rivers Internal Medicine and QuickCare (Four Rivers) – with the emphasis on family. Dr. McGregor and Mariah Hambry, APRN are part of a Four River's Internal Medicine and QuickCare (also known as Four Rivers). This comprehensive family practice headed by Internal Medicine specialist Dr. Jason Lorch and Dr. Tim Mabry, who holds dual specialty of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. Nurse practitioners Martha Kloss and Cainan Jones are also qualified to see pediatric patients and round out this great team.

Comprehensive Care

Four Rivers has been in practice since 2001. They moved to their current location at 3131 Parisa Drive, just off Jackson Street in Paducah, during the summer of 2012. The Practice focuses on overall health for patients of all ages. They focus on preventive care, chronic care and treat acute illnesses. The staff believes in building longlasting relationships between the patient and their doctor so that they can provide excellent and comprehensive care. Four Rivers has a lab on site that is open six days a week. There is a phlebotomist available to draw blood Monday through Saturday. They also have in-house x-ray technicians. If a technician or phlebotomist isn’t available, or the patient has an x-ray taken elsewhere, Four Rivers has the ability to review the results in the office. They provide vaccinations for children and adults, and are able to do weight checks for newborns upon discharge from the nursery.

QuickCare - Open Every Day

You do not have to be an established patient with Four Rivers Internal Medicine to take advantage of their QuickCare services. They are open seven days a week: Monday – Friday from 7am to 7pm, and on Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 4pm. If you want to schedule an appointment you must be an established patient with a provider at Four Rivers. However, walk-ins are always welcome and you can


Dr. Elizabeth McGregor Dr. McGregor is the latest addition to the Four Rivers/Quickcare Internal Medicine team. She is originally from Lexington and is a busy mom of three girls, Charley (4), Brooks (2), and Andersyn (9 months). “I’m a UK Wildcat through and through,” she told me. “I received my undergraduate degree there, attended medical school, and completed my residency at the University of Kentucky. I always remember wanting to be a doctor - even as a little kid. I ‘shadowed’ some physicians in high school and that really sealed the deal. I became interested in Pediatrics while in medical school - that’s where I just fell in love with the pediatric patients.” “My husband is an anesthesiologist and we moved to Paducah six years ago, after finishing residency. I am so excited to join the staff at Four Rivers as their Pediatrician. I will see patients that come in for QuickCare as well as accept primary care patients that want, or need, to establish with a pediatrician. Now Four Rivers is able to accept patients of all ages from newborn to elderly. Four Rivers is an ideal place for older teenagers who are needing a place to transition from pediatric to adult care.”

request to be seen by a pediatric specialist at all times. They see patients for physicals, medical maintenance, and urgent care issues such as upper respiratory infections, minor injuries, and other issues that require prompt attention, but are not necessarily an emergency. This decreases emergency room visits and provides a more affordable service to the community. “We realized there was a big need for after hour and weekend care,” said Dr. Lorch. “We decided to start our QuickCare services because it was what our patients asked for and needed. It allows us to treat patients quickly and this results in fewer trips to the emergency room, or a delay in the treatment of simple problems. QuickCare staff can treat anyone, from newborns to the elderly.” “It’s really ideal having two pediatricians on staff,” said Dr. Lorch. “Babies and young children can start off seeing Dr. McGregor and when they become an adult, transition to a medical provider at our practice. We will have all of your records and know your history, and that will mean good continuity of care.”

Kid Friendly Waiting & Exam Rooms

Wendy Mitchuson is the practice manager at Four Rivers Internal Medicine and QuickCare. “Our medical practice has been specifically designed,” stated Mitchuson. “We have a large waiting room with a special kid friendly area. It’s filled with toys, books, and a fish tank to keep

“Four Rivers is very committed to providing care for families and has even re-designed several exam rooms to be pediatric friendly. I feel it’s very important to be approachable to young patients. I do not typically wear a lab coat because I don’t want a child to be afraid, or find the visit scary in any way,” said Dr. McGregor. “I truly believe that it is important for all patients to have a primary care provider,” Dr. McGregor stated. “This is someone who knows the patient’s history, family dynamics and other things such as previous illnesses. It’s also important for every child to have a yearly wellness exam, even if vaccines are not required. Diseases such as heart disease and diabetes can occur during any point in life which makes getting your yearly checkups so important. An annual exam can help screen for the increase in risk factors by assessing BMI, blood pressure, lab work and more. There are many components the provider reviews at well-child checks such as vitals, depression screenings, anticipatory guidance, need for vaccinations, developmental surveillance, blood tests etc.” If you would like to make an appointment for yourself or your family with Dr. McGregor please call 270.444.8000. She is accepting new patients at Four Rivers Internal Medicine, as well as treating sick kids who walk in at QuickCare.

adopted and biological children ages 4, 20 months, and 6 months. We also have custody of an 18-year-old. My heart is so full both at home and work.” “My entire life I wanted to pursue a career with pediatrics and medicine. I went to Murray State University (MSU) and did an externship at Baptist Health Paducah in the mother/baby unit, pediatric floor and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). I quickly discovered NICU was where I wanted to pursue my nursing career. I was a nurse in the NICU for almost four years and while working there I finished my master's program at Tennessee Technological University.” “I have been at Four Rivers for almost two years and I have loved seeing the pediatric population grow. The clinic has created some new pediatric exam rooms, added a fantastic fish tank to the children’s waiting area and now they’ve hired a pediatrician. This provides service to the pediatric population after hours which is something our community really needed. I have an established practice and see walk-ins as well. I will be working alongside with Dr. McGregor and will be able to see her patients if needed when she is not available.” “I actually worked alongside Dr. McGregor in the NICU. I have gotten to know her on a more personal level over the past three months and she is truly amazing. She has so much passion for children and is very thorough when she’s examining and treating them. I personally like to take a holistic approach when diagnosing and treating patients. Dr. McGregor and I always try to practice from evidence based research recommendations.” “I feel that being a mother helps me when I am practicing medicine. There is a large need for pediatric care during after-hours and on the weekend. Being able to provide these services to my community makes me love my job even more. Many mothers come in on a Sunday afternoon thanking myself and the staff for being here. As a mother I understand the need to have somewhere to go when my children or family members are sick.”

Mariah Hamby, APNP Mariah Hamby has been with Four Rivers Internal Medicine and QuickCare for a couple of years now. “I have always had a passion for children,” stated Hamby. “I married my high school sweetheart Cory, and we have both

“I can relate to the day-to-day stress of parenting and I understand how hard it is when a child is ill,” said Hamby. “Dr. McGregor and I have a total of six children. We have bottle-fed, breastfed, used medicine, essential oils, etc. We can give recommendations from both personal experience and medical knowledge. We hope you’ll consider Four Rivers Internal Medicine and QuickCare when you’re choosing your family doctor and we are excited to accept new patients newborn and up.”

Get Your Kids Kindergarten Ready!

K

indergarten - for some mothers just the thought of that word causes anxiety. Starting Kindergarten means that your baby is no longer a baby! The McCracken County Early Childhood Council is doing their part to help to relieve the stress of getting your child, (and you), prepared. Their annual Kindergarten Ready Fair is the place to go to get all the answers. The McCracken County Early Childhood Council is gearing up for their 5th annual Kindergarten Ready Fair. This year it’s on Saturday, March 24 at Haws Gym on the campus of West Kentucky Community and Technical College. The Fair provides parents and families in both Paducah, and McCracken County, with much needed information about how to best prepare your child for school. This free event takes place from 9.30am - Noon and is designed for families to bring their children. Many local businesses, schools and organizations will have booths at the event to share information about their programs and services. Door prizes will be drawn every 15 minutes during the event.

Support So They Can Learn

“The purpose of the McCracken Co Early Childhood Council is to build innovative and collaborative partnerships that promote school readiness for children,” said Marianna Romero, Chairperson for the McCracken County Early Childhood Council. “We want to make sure that all children can begin school ready to learn and have the proper supports in place to be successful. The Kindergarten Ready Fair is a perfect event for our group to convey this message to the community.” There are five domains of school readiness that the Council focuses efforts on. These include: •

General knowledge and math

Health and Well-Being

Social Emotional Development

L anguage and Communication Development; and Approaches to Learning

Each of these five areas will be featured at a booth and demonstrated with a hands-on activity

Covering All The Bases

The fair provides a venue so that many local organizations and relevant businesses can a share their information with young families. As well as Council staff you’ll be able to speak with individuals from the Health Department, Easter Seals West Kentucky, WKCTC Adult Learning Program, the library, Paducah Public Schools/Paducah Head Start, and McCracken County Public Schools. There will also be representatives from local private schools and preschools, and Four Rivers Behavioral Health. The list of vendors is very diverse and covers everything imaginable so you’ll find representatives from the Paducah Police Department, health insurance companies,

Tips for Getting Your Child Ready

Robyn West of Paducah McCracken County Early Childhood Council shared some more ideas with me that parents can use to help lay their child’s foundation. These things will help your child excel in school and they can be done in the convenience of home. 1. Read to your child every day. “As parents read they should stop and talk about the pictures in the story,” Robyn told me. “They should discuss what they think is about to happen in the story and ask their child about the characters. Truly, getting a library card and being able to check out books is a parent’s best resource.” 2. Count the forks or spoons as you set the dinner table! These are relatable ways that a child can form a foundation for math basics, and see that it has practical applications. Get your child involved in counting the stairs on the way up or down, or count the pieces of fruit or crackers you give them aloud. This helps them be familiar with the things they will soon learn in the classroom. 3. Help them be critical thinkers. This can be as simply as discussing what season a storybook is set in and why that is important. While you drive around town, discuss the landscape with them. This helps keep their minds sharp and alert to their surroundings. It is easy, too, according to Robyn: “There are so many free things that you can make educational simply by discussing them. Know what you’re doing, why, and where.” 10

local hospitals and many organizations that provide enrichment and extra curricular activities such as Paducah Parks Department, McCracken County Extension Office and Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana.

Fun & Informative

Mary Seaton, Interdisciplinary Early Childhood Education at WKCTC, has four children: Emmy at Paducah Middle School, Grant and Bennett at Clark Elementary and Channing who will be attending the fair and Clark Elementary beginning school year 2018. As someone in the field of early education and who has had her own children attend, she knows the importance of this event. “The kindergarten fair was a wonderful opportunity for our son to get a head start on the first day of kindergarten,” Seaton told me. “The fair had fun activities for children and informative resources for parents. Bennett enjoyed the educational activities, games, and treats from each vendor. It's a great way to educate families about the options that are available for their child.” Mary believes that parents can gain valuable information on how to support their child's transition to kindergarten. “The fair helped identify skills and expectations on what every child should know and be able to do before entering kindergarten,” she explained. “Community partners and school representatives were available to provide information about educational services and programs.” “Attending the readiness fair helps to build that all important homeschool connection. Making sure your child enters school ready to learn is one of the best things you can do for them. You are your child's first teacher - reading, talking with them, making sure they are socialized is so important. The earliest years of childhood education are critical for establishing future school success.” For more information about this event, contact Kindergarten Ready Fair Chair Robyn West at Robyn.west@paducah.kyschools.us or 270.444.5730 ext. 4050.

One Dish Dinners

A

fter a long day at the office and a pile of chores to do at home, the thing I want to do is mess up a bunch of dishes preparing my evening repast. I want a delicious and easy to prepare meal that requires less time to clean up than it does to prepare. Thank goodness for one pot dinners.

With the onset of spring, my list of chores is growing and thus my need to simplify my meal preparations. Dishes like stews, frittatas and pot pies are hearty and can be as complex in flavor as you so choose. How about a steak with green peas, asparagus and mustard sauce? It sure sounds good to me after working in the yard on a spring evening.

As the primary cook in my house, there is something relaxing about only using one pan to build a flavorful meal. I don’t have to worry about when to start the various dishes so that they are ready at the same time. That’s why my large deep cast iron skillets and Dutch oven are the work horses of my kitchen. When the meal is ready, I only have one pan to clean and the rest of the evening is mine!

Two things that I have noticed about many one skillet, or one pot, meals is that many are include pasta or only have one or two vegetables. Around our house, we like our vegetables so I may have to augment my one dish meal with a green salad or a few steamed veggies - but I’m keeping my mess to a minimum. I hope some of these ideas help you free up a bit of precious time and still end in a delicious meal for you and your family. Live, Laugh, Love, and Eat Well.

The Virtual World

W

hat if I told you that you could be a gladiator in a colosseum, walk the halls as a wizard, explore the streets of France, and escape traps as a secret agent‌ all in the same day? What if there was a way to experience new adventures, experiences that you’ve only been able to have in your dreams, completely risk free? As the entertainment world continues to advance it is using new technology that will change our reality - and its being brought literally right to our finger tips. In my endless search of new trends and exciting products, iTech out the expansive world of virtual reality gaming that is bringing together kids and adults alike. The idea of virtual reality is not a new concept, for years we have seen different interpretations in TV shows and movies, but it goes back farther than a lot of people realize. Sega's Master System 3D glasses appeared in the 80s, a flickering headset that recreated the effect of 3D in a private setting. In 1995, Nintendo decided to give virtual gaming a try with its 3D red-and-black based headset, the Virtual Boy.

In the 90s, a company called Virtuality Group looked to introduce players to a one of a kind arcade experience with their Virtuality cabinets. They were huge oversized units where players stepped in, placed virtual goggles over their heads and put themselves in a 3D polygonal world.

All of these different products were seen as an unnecessary novelty and none were a commercial success.

Enter Oculus VR

Virtual reality began to enter the headlines again when a company called Oculus VR developed a headset called the Oculus Rift. Gaining momentum from a very successful Kickstarter campaign, the company started debuting their technology at trade shows around the world. On March 28 of 2016, the Oculus Rift headset was finally released, and virtual reality gaming became a success for the first time. Although the Oculus Rift is a pioneer of this new generation of technology,

it wasn’t exclusive. Other popular products such as the HTC Vive and PlayStation VR were released shortly after with similar merits.

How Does It Work?

Virtual reality systems like the Oculus and Vive are connected to a computer modem. You are fitted with a headset that covers your eyes, which has a screen inside that offers full 3D immersion and seamlessly integrates with your vision, along with built-in headphones. In addition to the headset, each system offers two controllers that your

hands wrap around with multiple buttons and triggers. Your hands serve as the focal point of most games, moving and grabbing objects at the push of a button. While plenty of VR games can be done simply by sitting or standing in a set position, the most immersive experiences take advantage of something called “room-scale.” What this means is that the user is able to physically walk/move around a room with set imaginary boundaries. The Vive offers a dual laser tracking system, while the Oculus uses a multi-camera system to track your body movements. Due to the large amount of computing power that is required to create these immersive games and run the equipment, price becomes the biggest factor to common adoption of VR technology. The VR consoles themselves are priced similarly to a several hundreddollar console gaming system (PlayStation, Xbox, etc), but the kicker is that you also need an equally powerful computer to run the system. Your regular out-of-the-box computer is not powerful enough to fully support VR, so once again you have to spend hundreds of dollars to upgrade your computer. For the average consumer, this large upfront investment is still too expensive.

A Local Solution

Because I am not able to afford the necessary components to get my virtual reality fix, I found another solution. I took a trip over to Mindscape Vr-Cade in Paducah where Jake and Kayla Clutts are supplying a quick getaway for those who want to enter another world. This Vr-Cade offers three different rooms equipped with Oculus Rift VR systems. The different programs they have in each room are called experiences, because it really doesn’t do them justice to say they are a game. You can play anything from a VR samurai sword-wielding version of the popular mobile game Fruit Ninja, to an interactive version of Google Earth where you can walk around anywhere you want. I admit I’ve become a bit of a VR junkie. In the multiple times I have visited the Vr-Cade, I’ve tried out many of the experiences. The pricing is reasonable (starting at $10 for 15 minutes). After 30 minutes I almost always feel like I just had a solid workout!

One day I crafted spells in Waltz of the Wizard, I was able to tear apart robots with my bare hands in Robo Recall, went through portals to a different dimension in Rick and Morty VR, and I had an awesome 2-in-1 experience as I got to do a virtual escape room in a VR version of the movie The Belko Experiment. I haven’t had the nerve to try out the different horror games that they offer, but based off of the yells and shrieks I heard in the room next door, I would say they fulfill their purpose. Each room has a selection of games, but there are some specifically tailored to help out people that don’t know what they want to try. Room 1 has games that cater more to young children and are easily accessible, while Room 3 has multiple horror experiences that will unnerve the sternest of adults. The owners have thought this through and have something for everyone. To me, the coolest part of virtual reality is that it offers a chance for people, young and old, to experience things that we once only thought possible in science-fiction movies. And, heads up Mom and Dads, your teen is probably going to ask for a VR gaming system for their next birthday! At the end of the day, some people just want to feel like a superhero, and now they can make that dream a ‘virtual reality’.

Hot on their Heels! The 2018 Hearts & Heels Fashion Show Event

B

aptist Health Paducah is gearing up for their annual Hearts & Heels Fashion Show. It’s always a big event and last year drew around 200 people. Organizers expect this year to be bigger and better than ever! The 2018 Show features shopping opportunities, a live fashion show, door prizes and games, food, and a wine bar. Attendees receive a goodie bag and a free signature cocktail. This is always a fun evening! “This is the third year of this event in this format,” explained Lora Croley, Director of Philanthropy at Baptist Health Foundation Paducah. “It originated several years ago as a small luncheon on our hospital campus. Three years ago we decided to revamp this event. We moved it off campus and held it in the evening so that we weren’t constrained to the one-hour time limit we had to work with. To watch this event grow and evolve each year has been amazing. Last year $36,000 was raised and we hope to surpass that this year.”

The Hearts & Heels Fashion Show is scheduled for Friday, March 16 and will take place at The Carson Center in Paducah. Shopping begins at 6pm in the lobby, with the show to follow at 7pm on the stage. The event provides a great showcase for local stores and boutiques. The Ray Black & Son’s Runway will be filled with the latest styles and looks from Dillard’s, Jaded Layne, Chico’s, The Dirt Road, The Treasure Tree,

Those attending can dine on a large selection of hors d'oeuvres courtesy of the dining sponsor, Paducah Bank. In addition, each participant will receive one free signature drink courtesy of sponsor, Credit Bureau Systems. A cash wine bar also will be available. Each guest will receive a beauty bag filled with goodies, courtesy of sponsor The Skincare Corner at Wellsprings Dermatology and other items from Baptist Health Auxiliary.

Glamorous Models

Several of Baptist Health staff will be amongst the models wearing the latest fashions on the Ray Black & Son’s Runway. There will be several younger physicians including The Men of Baptist! Nicole Turnbo RN, BSN, who is a nurse in the Labor and Delivery, Mother/Baby (aka the Baby Catcher), is modeling for the first time. “I am so excited!”Turnbo told me. “I decided to model because I strongly believe in women’s health. The proceeds go to the Baptist Foundation and are invested in programs to that support women’ health such as cancer screening programs, and of course the delivery of a baby!” Turnbo loves the excitement of the event and women cheering other women on. “It’s empowering to support such a great cause. I think this is a great event that will remind women to take care of themselves. We are mothers, wives, professionals… we are pulled in so many different directions that sometimes we forget to take care of ourselves. This event is important to remind ourselves that our health needs to be a top priority. We can’t take care of others if we don’t take care of ourselves.”

All For Good Cause

Funds raised through this event are used to meet some of the most immediate healthcare needs of Baptist Health Paducah. Through

Simply B, Cabi, Ribbon Chix and Maclaran Manor. They are brought to you by the 2018 presenting sponsor Strawberry Hills Pharmacy. Chris Black is this year’s event emcee.

“Shop till you drop!”

Part of the fun at the Show is the shopping! Come early so that you can browse all the great merchandise from the displays that will be set up in the Carson Center lobby. They will include Signature Boutique, BBQ & More, The Treasure Tree, Strawberry Hills Pharmacy, Flowers & Furbish, Maclaran Manner, Ribbon Chix and Frostings by Icy.

All the Goodies

The Hearts & Heels event is designed to be much more than just a fashion show. There will be fun games throughout the event with opportunities to win great door prizes, including a pair of diamond earrings generously provided by Michelson Jewelers.

donations from events such as these, the foundation has been able to fund the relocation and expansion of their Baptist Sleep Lab. They have doubled the space from two to four sleep lab beds, and provided a more serene atmosphere conducive to sleep testing.

Funds have also been allocated for training and equipment of the new neonatal transport services. “Hearts & Heels 2018 is going to be another fantastic night of fashion, fun and philanthropy!” Croley told me. “For three years, we’ve had amazing community support from sponsors. We have more vendors, more models and many exciting things lined up for this year.” For more information about how you can become involved with Hearts & Heels, table spots, and to purchase sponsorships, contact the foundation at 270.575.2851.

Wayne Bell Chess Camp Helping Kids Thrive "Chess teaches foresight, by having to plan ahead; vigilance, by having to keep watch over the whole chess board; caution, by having to restrain ourselves from making hasty moves; and finally, we learn from chess the greatest maxim in life - that even when everything seems to be going badly for us we should not lose heart, but always hoping for a change for the better, steadfastly continue searching for the solutions to our problems." - Benjamin Franklin

C

hess is really thriving in our region - especially amongst young people. One of the biggest reasons for its popularity is the time and effort that has been put in by Thomas Knight and the West Kentucky Chess Association. Knight is excited about the three upcoming chess camps in our region this summer.

Three Locations

Murray State will run the camp and have named it the Wayne Bell Chess Camp. West Kentucky Chess will help by providing instructors and materials. All the camps will take place on Murray State University locations. On June 4 - 8 Chess camp will be in Paducah, June 11-15 it is at the main campus in Murray and June 18 - 22 will be in Hopkinsville. The association plans to add a camp in Madisonville in 2019. The week in Paducah will be geared towards instruction for newer players - those entering Kindergarten up to 12th grade. The morning season will be for beginners who are rated up to 600. The afternoon session is designed for instruction of players rated above 600. There will

also be an afternoon session just for strategic gaming aimed at kids rising to 5th grade up to 12th grade. The camps in Murray and Hopkinsville will both include morning and afternoon sessions for any beginner players rated up to 1200, or Kindergarten to 12th grade. (If the structure of camp at the Paducah MSU campus is acceptable this summer that model will be applied to all the other locations in 2019.)

Capture & Tactics

So, what can campers expect from chess camp - a lot more than just games of chess! They’ll spend a little time learning about the history of the game and receive a board and pieces. Campers will discover the objective of chess, how to capture and they’ll learn tactics and strategy. Chess camp will go over the fundamentals of competition, conduct and behavior. They will also learn the independence required by every player when competing - no matter if they're kindergartners or 12th graders.


Zombie Chess & More!

The players will also learn about different chess variants such as atomic chess, zombie chess, Bughouse and other blitz style chess games. There will also be an unrated event for the participants and a piece stacking contest. Strategic gaming will open the doors beyond chess, into other games that require planning and strategy to achieve the player's goals, like Risk and Catan.

A Team in Every School

Knight’s goal is for Paducah Public Schools to have a chess team in each school. “So far the high school team has been quite active this season,” he told me. “They have played in every regional event and hosted the largest season tournament that drew over 130 K-12 players. Clark

Elementary has a large group of students learning how to play and they will be ready to compete at the start of the next season. There is a competitive player at Paducah Middle School and two at Clark.” “Last year's camp was a great success,” Knight told me. “It brought in several new chess players who went on to compete in the current chess season. Two years ago, the camp was only held at the Paducah MSU campus, and last year it included the main campus in Murray. This year the Hopkinsville MSU campus will host a week. Plans are in the works for Madisonville's campus to host in 2019.”

Exercise for your brain

So, why send your child to a chess camp? Well research has shown that playing chess uses both the left and right side of your brain. The left side is adept at tasks that include logic and analytics, while the right side

Scholastic Chess Rating System The rating system allows chess players to determine their chess playing ability as it compares to both their peers and the rest of the chess world. In the case of our region, players use the US Chess Federation's rating system. Members of the USCF can look up their ratings, and any other rated players, online through the rating lookup link at uschess.org. The more a you play rated chess the more accurate the rating becomes. The USCF doesn't even establish a set rating for a player until they've played more than 25 rated games. The rated player also has the benefit of evenly single game since 1991 being published online so they can review and study for future events and opponents. Knights says he’s aware, based on published rating reports, who his best players are from their ratings online. If he wanted to determine the team captain at PTHS, he could go entirely by rating, but then players wouldn't be able to challenge for the spot through blitz games, and Knight says that's a lot more fun. Every rated game matters and is part of the calculation. It matters who a player plays in each event, what their opponents rating is, who their opponents have won and lost games against, and how many of those opponents were better or worse than the original player. This happens at the publication of each rated event, and those data are incorporated into the national system that includes every other event with any number of players.  For a more in depth explanation of the rating algorithm, visit glicko.net/ratings/rating.system.pdf.

controls expressive and creative tasks. In a German study, researchers showed chess experts and novices simple shapes and chess positions. They measured the subjects’ reaction to identifying them, and, while both groups reacted the same to the simple shapes, the experts actively used the right side of their brains to identify the chess positions quickly. Exercising the right side of your brain results in greater creativity!

Improve Your Memory & Grade

If you find that you often forget things you want to remember try playing chess. Chess can help improve your memory. To be good at the game, chess players must remember how their opponents have strategized in the past and what moves have helped them win before. In a two year study in 1985, young students who were given regular opportunities to play chess improved their grades in all subjects, and their teachers observed better memory and organizational skills in the students. A similar study of Pennsylvania sixth-graders found the same results. Students who had never before played chess before improved their memories and verbal skills after taking up the game. Additionally, because your brain acts like a muscle and must be exercised so it doesn’t lose strength, playing chess can prevent Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

Improve Concentration & Problem Solving

Chess players have improved concentration and better problem-solving skills. Because chess is like a big puzzle that is always changing and requires on-the-spot decisions, it increases critical thinking. Good chessplaying involves watching your opponent’s moves, so it helps sharpen focus. Another benefit of chess is especially meaningful for teenagers: it teaches planning and foresight. One of the last areas of the brain to develop is the prefrontal cortex, which dictates planning, judgment, and self-control. Strategy games like chess promote prefrontal cortex development, which can help teenagers make better decisions in all areas of their lives. Playing chess just might keep them from making the risky choices associated with adolescents. Now you know that chess can help your kids work on critical skills they need to be great students and better humans. Time to sign them up for one of the three Wayne Bell Chess Camps in our region this summer! For more information on this camp or chess in our area, visit westkychess. com. To sign up call 270.933.8228 or email westkychess@gmail.com.

The Root of All Area Chess

Dr. Wayne Bell passed away in 2014 and was a retired math professor who taught at MSU from 1978-2008. Dr. Bell was a member, a past president and past treasurer of the Murray Independent School District Foundation for Excellence. He was a national chess coach as well as a national chess tournament director. Along with many of his accomplishments, he was the Kentucky State Chess Champion of 1994 and was inducted into the Kentucky Chess Hall of Fame. Bell was the founder of Murray State University's chess program and the Murray-Calloway County Chess Club where most area chess clubs were derived. In 1980, after Bell became a math professor at Murray State University, Bell and a student, Rodney Vaugh, started the MSU Chess Club. The club, which is still going strong today, has placed in the top five at State Championships for five years in a row. He was also responsible for bringing chess to the Super Saturdays at MSU.

The State of Kentucky Chess Organization

Bell didn't just bring chess to MSU, he also encouraged a change to chessplaying in Kentucky. The Kentucky Chess Association had one tournament with about 50 competitors. He collaborated with Roy Crawford from Eastern Kentucky and suggested they make chess more like our athletics competitions, with regions, districts, qualifiers, etc. A student new to chess would likely be uncomfortable traveling to Louisville for a chess tournament, but if a competition was nearby, he or she would be more willing to try it. A year after they started using this new system, they had 600 players competing, and Kentucky chess took off.

How to Prepare Your Child What Age is Best

I

s your kid ready for sleep-a-way camp? If you’ve ever dropped your child off at a slumber party only to receive a 2 am call saying they want to come home, you might think "nope." But most kids are more ready to experience the rite of passage that is summer camp than their parents realize. “Yeah, yeah, yeah,” you’re probably thinking. “But is my kid ready?” Only you (and your child) can say for sure, but there definitely are things you can do to find out — and to prepare your kid for going. Like most things, different kids are ready at different times. An independent child who happily rushes out the door to go to school might be ready as early as six or seven, whereas a shy or anxious kid might not be ready even at eleven or twelve. Starting with a casual conversation about the idea of camp, (not about them going,) is a good idea. Do they respond enthusiastically (“Woo-hoo! I’m ready to sing Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah!’)? Or do they shrink away from the idea like a vampire from light? Their response should give you a strong sense of their readiness.

A low-pressure push

It’s also important to know that some reticent kids are actually ready to handle sleepaway camp, but need a little (low-pressure) push. This is especially true for older kids. Try having your child talk to other kids who have gone to camp, watch promotional videos on camps’ websites (plus movies like The Parent Trap that portray camp in a fun way), or even visit a camp to see it first-hand. Other ways to make your child more comfortable with going to camp include enrolling them with a friend, sibling, or cousin, and letting them pick the camp of their choice. Yes, you loved the "Crazy Chuck's Wild Wilderness Camp" you went to as a kid, but your kid might be more happy at, say, dance camp.

You should also assess your child's self-care abilities

Can your kid shower on their own? Brush their teeth and groom themselves alone? These are questions you'll want to ask, but you need to be honest with yourself. Some parents really want their kids to go to camp, so they convince themselves their kid is ready before they are. Others are nervous about the idea, so they decide their kid isn’t ready. It doesn’t hurt to get the objective opinion of a trusted family member or friend.

Try a practice run

Regardless of whether your kid is raring to go or a bit hesitant, it’s a good idea to “practice” being at camp beforehand to ease your kid into the experience. For example, you can pack your child a toiletry bag and then task them with showering, brushing, and grooming themselves without any help for a week. You can also pack a suitcase with clothes and have your kid dress themselves out of it for a week. You can even send your kid to sleep overnight at a friend’s or relative’s home. This will go a long way toward making them — and you — feel a lot more prepared. If after reading all of this you still don't think your kid is ready, don't sweat it. There are alternatives, like family camp or day camp, that can help ready your kid for sleepaway camp in the future — and they're a lot of fun in their own right!

Healthy Skin is Beautiful Skin 3 Must Do's

E

very day my patients ask me what they can do to make their skin look better. Advancements in the cosmetic world occur regularly often driven by the fact that this is a multi-billion dollar industry. This leads to some good options that will improve the overall look of the skin. I’m fortunate that I can call on a team of staff to research available products, treatments and services so that we can determine what is truly effective in improving the health, and look of the skin. Since education is one of our core values, I’m pleased to be able to share what I consider to be the basic requirements of all skin care for men and women.

3 Basic Steps

For facial skin of all types, there are 3 basic steps that must be followed twice a day, every day. This will allow for proper exfoliation of the dead skin cells that build up on the surface of the skin, removing pollutants from the day’s exposures while also restoring the proper pH of the skin. When we are very young, our skin accomplishes this renewal process naturally. With the passing of time, our skin loses the ability to fulfill this basic step on its own. Some of this is due to a natural decline in the cells exfoliating on their own. However, some of this is due to things we DO to our skin, such as: •

Use of non-physician strength moisturizers that are large molecule, inert products that sit on top of the skin and do not get absorbed

Smoking

Exposure to temperature extremes

Using occlusive make-up foundation

All of these can add to aging of the skin and loss of natural exfoliation, causing irregular texture of the skin with inflammation, dryness, fine lines and wrinkles and irregular brown spots. Therefore it is critical to follow these three basic steps twice a day to allow your skin to be healthy. 1.

Cleanse with a physician strength cleanser twice a day. Apply the cleanser to your hands and add warm water to lather over your entire face. Wash in circular motions using your hands for one minute. Rinse with warm water and a wash cloth to totally remove. Repeat a second time if there is any residue of make up or pollutants on the wash cloth. Using a Clarisonic Brush for cleansing has been proven to give the additional benefit of removing more of the pollution from your skin. When using this, splash your face with warm water, apply the cleanser to the brush and then use it for a timed minute to cleanse the entire face 2. Toning is the next critical skin care basic. A toner facilitates chemical exfoliation and restores the pH of your skin. It also allows for adequate absorption of any skin care products applied following this step. A toner should be applied twice a day after cleansing. The type of physician strength toner you use depends on your skin sensitivity, as well as any tendency towards acne or


It is important to use a scrub, typically twice a week, in the mornings between cleansing and toning.

rosacea. Toners are usually available in pre-soaked pads or a liquid form that can be applied with a cotton round or cotton ball. 3.

The third step of basic skin care provides for mechanical exfoliation and consists of using a scrub. The type of particles in the scrub must be very fine to prevent breaks in the skin. Some of the particle scrubs on the market will actually damage the top layer of the skin if they are too large or have jagged edges.

enhanced healthy collagen production to occur. Whatever else you decide to add to your routine, just first remember the 3 Must Do’s! Cleanse • Tone • Scrub!

*

It is important to use a scrub, typically twice a week, in the mornings between cleansing and toning. After cleansing, while the skin is still moist, take a small amount of the scrub on your fingertips and massage into your skin with small circular motions for one minute. The skin will tingle and turn a little pink. That is what you want to happen. This is an indication that the blood vessels are dilating, bringing more oxygen to the skin surface and allowing it to look and be healthier. Rinse those particles off of the skin and follow with the toner.

Additional Skin Issues

Once you have in place the basic steps in place, (proper skin cleansing, toning and fine particle scrub prepping), there are multiple other options to add. These can treat additional skin issues such as inflammation, redness, fine lines and wrinkles, and brown spots. There are many healthy options of physician strength skin care products that contain retin-A or retinol, hyaluronic acid, collagen boosters, enzyme repair and proper hydration. In addition, treatments can be added on a monthly or quarterly basis that enhance your daily skin care routine. The facial is a wonderful treatment to renew the skin on a monthly basis. It allows for exfoliation, deep pore cleansing and infusion of advanced serums into the skin. In addition, microneedling allows for

Crawlin' for a Cause A St. Patrick's Day Pub Crawl for Habitat for Humanity

E

very year on March 17 the Irish, (and Irish at heart,) around the world celebrate the patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick. What began as a religious feast day has since evolved into a globally recognized festival, celebrating Irish culture, dancing, singing, food – and a whole lot of shamrocks, leprechauns and green beer. A brand-spanking new event in Paducah is jumping on the bandwagon to help you celebrate this holiday safely! Come out and celebrate St Paddy’s Day with your friends and neighbors! Join in the fun at the first, (annual we hope,) St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl to benefit Habitat for Humanity. This Pub Crawl for a Cause is being held on Saturday, March 17 at multiple locations in Paducah Midtown and Downtown.

From 12-5:40pm you’ll be able to ride the event trolley from Midtown to more establishments Downtown, and back again. Sponsored by Wagner Wine & Spirits, and participating restaurants/bars, the proceeds raised will help Paducah-McCracken Habitat for Humanity build a new home. Organizers were looking for a one-ofa-kind, signature event and realized that there was very little going on in Paducah for St. Patrick’s Day. The weather is getting warmer, folks want to get out, and this event fills a need while at the same time promoting safety, and discouraging drinking and driving.

Get Your Wristbands Now!

You must purchase a $30 wristband to participate in this event. Participants are strongly encouraged to pre-order their wristband at eventbrite.com/e/stpatricks-day-pub-crawl-for-a-cause-tickets43104301125?aff=efbeventtix because there are a limited number available. But, for those who like to live dangerously, you will be able to purchase wristbands on the day of the event – if any are left! There will be two registration stations selling wristbands that will be open from 11:30am - 4pm. They will be located at Shandie's and in the Coke Plant's parking lot. At the stations participants will checkin with a valid ID proving that

you are at 21 years old, sign a waiver, and receive wristband, and a map of participating locations.

Special ‘Crawler ’ Menus & Drinks

The wristband will grant you access to unlimited trolley rides to and from designated Crawl stops. The trolley will run continuously on a 30-minute loop during the event. Its stops will be located close to participating sponsors from Midtown to Downtown Paducah. Wristband holders may visit stops in any order they choose. Each wristband will have two drink tabs that can be pulled off and redeemed at any establishment participating in the Crawl for items on their Crawler Only menu of drink and food. Many of the restaurants and bars will offer specials available to wristband holders only. (Please note that participating sponsor locations will set their own prices.)

Paducah-McCracken County Habitat for Humanity Habitat is excited to partner with Wagner Wine & Spirits for the St. Patrick's Day Pub Crawl for a Cause. Paducah-McCracken County Habitat for Humanity has a clear vision: To eliminate poverty housing in the county. Together with community partners, they are working to address this issue. Habitat is not a handout. To qualify, partner families must pay a down payment, participate in homeowner education classes, and work at least 350 hours of sweat equity on a home build. Then they re-pay a 20 year, no interest mortgage, which goes back into their building program to build more homes.

Some participating locations will have live music, St. Patrick's Day party favors and other fun swag to get you in the holiday spirit. This is going to be a fun afternoon with plenty of vivacious energy for a lively St. Patrick’s Day. Participating venues include Mellow Mushroom, Max's Brick Oven, Dry Ground Brewery, Shandie's, Paducah Beer Werks, Maiden Alley Cinema, The Twinkling Star, Highwater Fresh Wine Bar, T h e Paducah Cigar Company, The Juniper Room @Yeiser Smedley and more! The complete list of participating sponsors, Crawl Sponsors and Crawler Menu Specials will be distributed at registration by event volunteers, along with the St. Patrick's Day Pub Crawl Map showing the trolley and Crawler Sponsor stops. Don’t get pinched because you forgot to wear your green. There will also t-shirts (limited) available for purchase at registration. A silent auction will be held at The Paducah Cigar Company during the event. The St. Patrick's Day Pub Crawl for a Cause will happen, rain or shine. All wristband proceeds go to help fund Habitat for Humanity’s next home build in the spring. For more information, visit facebook.com/events/1782098825432870.

$3 Beer at Dry Grounds (On the Crawler Menu)

Here’s one reason why that wristband is really worth the price. One of the participating venues in this event is Dry Ground Brewing. Dry Ground is known for their unique, specialty-brewed beers. For the Crawl they will be featuring their ’37 Flood IPA, Fresh Plowed Saison, and Preacher Pils for only $3 a glass. These specials are only for those who purchased Pub Crawl wristbands.

Even though they're affiliated with the International Habitat organization, local chapters must raise funds themselves. They use efficient business practices to coordinate volunteer labor with donations of money and materials. Paducah-McCracken County Habitat for Humanity has a clear vision: To eliminate poverty housing in the County. Paducah-McCracken County Habitat for Humanity has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. We pledged to the letter and spirit of U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin.

One Book Read 10th Anniversary The Age of Miracles - Meet the Author

O

n March 14, West Kentucky Community and Technical College welcomes to its campus Karen Thompson Walker, author of the New York Times bestseller The Age of Miracles. Her visit is part of their annual One Book Read program at WKCTC. The One Book Read project, which began at West Kentucky Community and Technical College in 2008, is a community effort to encourage reading across various groups of people in hopes of helping to eliminate illiteracy in our region. The project encourages the community, area school districts, and colleges to read the same book and come together to discuss it in a variety of settings. One Book partners join together to plan various events and activities related to the book within the community. The culmination of the One Book project is the author’s visit to West Kentucky Community and Technical College for special presentations about the book, writing, and the importance of reading.

Author Visit

To round off each One Book Read selection, the author, Karen Thompson, Walker, will visit WKCTC and share the book with the community on March 13 and 14. An Opening Reception will be held at 6 pm on Tuesday, March 13 in the Student Center on WKCTC’s campus. Walker will make a presentation to the public at 7 pm in the Clemens Theatre. The night will end with a book signing in Clemens Gallery at 8:15 pm. On Wednesday, March 14, at 11am in Clemens Theatre, there will be a student presentation. All events leading up to the author visit will appear on onebookread.com. This year’s One Book Read is funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Kentucky Arts Council.

Karen Thompson Walker

Karen Thompson Walker was born and raised in San Diego, California, where her book The Age of Miracles is set. She studied English and

creative writing at University of California Los Angeles, where she wrote for the UCLA paper, the Daily Bruin. After college, she worked as a newspaper reporter in the San Diego area before moving to New York City to attend Columbia University. There she received a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts. While working as a book editor at the publishing house Simon & Schuster she wrote The Age of Miracles - in the mornings before work and sometimes while riding the subway. She received the 2011 Sirenland Fellowship as well as a Bomb Magazine fiction prize. She currently resides in Brooklyn with her husband.

Indonesia Tsunami

Walker got the idea for The Age of Miracles from a newspaper article about the tsunami in Indonesia in 2004. The earthquake that preceded the tsunami was so strong that it affected the speed of the earth on its axis, shortening the length of a day by fractions of a second. “I just found that very haunting,” Walker says. “Something we think of as stable and steady - sunset and sunrise.” She took the tragedy and ran with it, writing a short story inspired by it. Then, years later, she returned to finish it. The story evolved from the concept of the earth speeding up to the earth slowing down.

The Science of the Book

“Everything in the book is invented,” Walker told BookPage. “None of it happened to me - but I do remember the feeling. As you grow up, certain friends drift away, and there’s your first love, your first interest.” She worked to find the balance between scientific facts and truths and the beauty of fiction. “I did some research but it needed to also come from my imagination,” she said. “So it was a combination of my imagination and real science.” Walker also researched the hard facts: how does a greenhouse work? How does earth’s magnetic field work? She tried to keep the confusing side minimal and focus on the people in the story, and how their surroundings effected them.

From A Child’s Perspective

The complex science in the book becomes less important than the people because of the narration. The tragedy in the book is from a child, Julia’s, perspective. She is a sharp child, drawing the reader in with her personality. The book balances humor well with tough material: Julia is funny and brings humor to the page. It doesn’t let humor overpower the seriousness of the issue. The message is clear we have to take care of our world. Walker said she is not a “doomsayer:” but, “I am drawn to stories that have some sort of threat or danger; it has a way of raising the stakes.”

Overcoming Grief

E

veryone experiences the loss of a loved one in their lifetime. For children, this experience can be even more daunting. By 18 years old, 20% of all children will experience this grief. Camp Robin is presented by Lourdes Hospice and Palliative Care and is designed to support children going through loss.

Camp Robin

Camp Robin is a free camp designed to assist children with the grieving process. It is being held on Saturday, April 14 from 9am to 2pm at Heartland Church, in Paducah. It is open to any child or teen who want to attend, from any county or State. Traditionally, the camp serves residents of western Kentucky and southern Illinois with hospice but are not limited to them. “Our

bereavement services‌ are community driven and open to anyone,� explained Shannah Poindexter, Community Relationship Manager for Mercy Health and Lourdes Homecare, Hospice & Palliative Care. This year, the 14th annual Camp Robin will bring both traditional and new approaches.

Writing Letters to Loved Ones Children who attend Camp Robin will participate in fun activities as part of the therapeutic process of grief recovery. There will be games, stories, arts, and crafts designed to interact with children going through a loss. Animal Therapy is provided by two local organizations, Love on a Leash and Cassidy's Cause. Through memory-based activities and story-telling times, both children and adults learn how to heal healthily. In the past, participants have written letters to their loved ones in which they depict their feelings and emotions over the loss. The letters are released via helium balloons as a way of sending them to the loved ones. This therapy has been a favorite and highly successful in past years.

Marshall Strong

Camp Robin does not single out one event over another, but the administration actively supports the Marshall County students in the wake of the tragic shooting that occurred there. Chaplains reached out to those affected and consistently offer support.


“A primary goal of Camp Robin is for (the students) to feel a camaraderie and to feel a unity in grief with other children/teens their age,” said Poindexter. “If, on the day of the Camp, we have campers who are experiencing grief and other grief/anxiety related situations, we will have qualified counselors on hand to work with them specifically regarding the shooting and feelings related to that experience.”

Adult Classes

Camp Robin is for children and teens, but parents and guardians are welcome too. The camp holds adult classes, held during the children’s’ classes, that focus on helping the adults heal as well. For many of the children dealing with the loss of perhaps a sibling, a parent has lost a child.

Sneak Peek Children’s Fashion Show

Camp Robin provides free services, so they rely on alternative sources for funding. A Sneak Peek Fashion Show will be held this month with 100% of its proceeds donated to Camp Robin. The decor for the fashion show will feature crafts from previous Camp Robins. Each table will feature grief statistics to inform the guests. The Sneak Peek Fashion Show will be Thursday, March 8, at 4pm at Soirées Events, 2069 Irvin Cobb Drive, Paducah. Tickets are $45 per person and includes heavy hors d'oeuvres featuring chicken salad wont-tons, crust-less cucumber sandwiches, truffles and more. For information or to purchase tickets, call 270.557.7518 or 270.415.3690 or email events@soireeseventplanning.com or SPoindexter@Mercy.com.

Auction

It Is Important to Keep Your Hands Active

A

rthritis often effects the hands of seniors causing pain, limited grip and limited motion. Simple activities like holding your toothbrush, sewing on a button, opening lids, even stirring your coffee can be trying if your hands and fingers are stiff and hurting as a result of arthritis in the hand joints. The good news is that there are many things you can do to be proactive in avoiding arthritis in your hands in the future. Simple motions used in daily activities can help keep the joints in your hands moving. Handwriting activities, chopping vegetables and mixing ingredients while cooking, gardening, crafts that include gripping (i.e. sawing or cutting motions) and picking up small items, typing or working on a computer or pad ar eall good activities to help keep the joints moving and free from arthritis. Rubber stress balls, metal Chinese stress balls and clothes pins are all good tools to have at hand to pick up and exercise your hands while you are watching television, riding in a car, etc. If you are already experiencing pain and stiffness from arthritis in your hands, now is the time to ask a therapist for a good hand-exercise regimen to help you regain motion and strength in your hands to keep the symptoms from progressing. Also, keep in mind that you should pay attention to any pain you are experiencing and have the symptoms evaluated by a physician as soon as possible. orthopaedicinstitute.com/kentucky
