Rock quarry rezoning puts P&Z in the pits Planning and Zoning Commission says no after three-hour-long tryst By Laura Saylor

Roughly 100 county residents attended a recent Planning and Zoning Commission meeting to combat

a rezoning request made by representatives of Meade County Quarry, LLC. The Meade County courthouse was standing room only during the Aug. 21 meeting, though the public

was asked to refrain from speaking until quarry personnel gave a presentation explaining its request for the rezoning. The quarry engineers asked county officials to grant the rezoning of 475 acres of land in the Big Bend area from A-2 (agricultural) to HI (high indus-

trial). The rezoning request was made after initial core drilling done by Meade County Quarry indicated dense stone and scrubber rock were available, though the current zoning prohibits crushers and other high industrial vehicles from being on-site. The opposing public’s

dominant concerns were environmental issues, property damage, road traffic, erosion, wildlife preservation, and disruption of the rural nature of the area. “The zoning commission’s scope is really limited by KRS (Kentucky Revised Statute) 100 to three factors,” said Planning and

Zoning Administrator Tony Coletta. He listed the three conditions the planning commission is required to derive its recommendation from: 1. Whether or not the original zoning of the area was appropriate at the time

According to Officer Steve Pavey, Kentucky State Police Public Affairs Officer, Meade County Property Value Administrator Mark Straney was sited Tuesday for cultivation of marijuana, less than five plants. A KSP detective filed the citation, which is a misdemeanor, so no arrest was made. Straney plead not guilty on Wednesday, and a pretrial hearing is scheduled to held at the Meade County courthouse on Oct. 1 at 9 a.m.

Industry meets nature at local quarries The rezoning of approximately 475 acres in Big Bend from A-2 (agricultural) to HI (high industrial) has neighboring residents in an uproar. Big Bend and Battletown denizens don’t want Meade County Quarry, LLC to begin high industrial drilling that may create noise, dust, road traffic or other nuisances to their neck of the woods, though miners need access — and have the right — to the invaluable scrubber rock and limestone that is buried beneath the county. The public voiced its concerns about Meade County Quarry during an Aug. 21 Planning and Zoning Commission meeting, though the rezoning issue will be finalized at the Sept. 9 Fiscal Court meeting.


New principal takes the reins at Ekron Elem. Board appointment causes a tizzy at Fiscal Court meeting By Laura Saylor

It’s an exciting time to be a student at Ekron Elementary School. As the anticipation of a new school year plays out, both students and teachers are catching small glimpses of — such as brand new tile flooring — what their school will soon be: New and improved. As the current building upgrades continue, another surprise was waiting for students on the first day of school: A new principal. Jon Thomas, a Hardin County native, welcomed the 408 students that

New gate, barracks open as BRAC continues to unfold Submitted by Fort Knox PAO

FORT KNOX — On Sept. 3, 2008, Fort Knox officials will open an additional gate, the Baker Gate, for all construction and commercial vehicles. The gate will only be open from 6 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Monday through Fri-

walked in the front doors of Ekron Elementary School three weeks ago, for the start of the 2008-09 school year. “It’s been great,” Hardin said. “I keep waiting for somebody to pinch me.” Former Ekron principal Beth Fackler took a new position as the elementary curriculum resource teacher with the Meade County Board of Education, leaving her principal spot to be filled. After a detailed interview process, Thomas was hired on July 18, and took a seat at his new desk on July 21. “It’s wonderful to be here,” Thomas said. “The construction may cause some hard times now … we have two teachers re-located out of their classrooms right now. But we’re all keeping our eye on the prize. The eight new classrooms are the light at the end of the tunnel.” Thomas is a 14-year veteran of the Hardin County school district, teaching senior high and middle school level students during his tenure. By completing his level two principalship last spring, he was qualified to apply for the Ekron principal position — and the rest is history in the making. “People at Hardin County asked me, ‘Jon, are you sure you want to get out of the classroom and into administration? Aren’t you going to miss being around the kids?’ and I told them no, because I was going to make it a point to still have that close relationship with all the students,” he said. Though his new position is more managerial and less

instruction-based, Thomas is dedicated to being in the classroom — every one of them — at least once every day, visiting with students and giving pats on the back and high fives. “My vision is to have this be a place where people want to be, both students and teachers,” he said. “I want to create that positive climate … that keeps people motivated and makes them want to be here. The kids really feed off their teachers’ attitudes, that’s why it’s important for issues to be addressed, for morale to stay high … for everyone to be positive.” At the start of the new school year, Thomas was part of many “meet the new principal activities,” including an introductory assembly. As the assembly concluded, Thomas had all third- through sixth-grade students remain and spoke to them about their leadership role within the student body, including how younger students, from pre-schoolers through second grade, will follow their examples. Thomas said he also encouraged everyone on the faculty to play a positive role in students’ lives. “I want to see them in my office — which shocked them all to hear me say that,” Thomas said. “But I want them in my office when they stop by and show me medals they won at a church function … or one boy is teaching himself how to play the guitar and he stops in to play a song for me every Friday.” Thomas said attending events outside of school that are important to a child help strengthen the teacher-tostudent bond. “Last year (at Hardin

County) I went to three baptisms and soccer games,” he said. “They know you have to be at school and you’re paid to be there, but when they see you at something like that away from the classroom, it really means a lot.” Personal goals of Thomas, aside from maintaining a positive atmosphere, are to scrutinize the school’s standardized testing scores when they are released next month, and to form work groups that help strengthen the student body’s overall testing weaknesses. “We want to further our positives and improve the negatives by fine-tuning the curriculum,” he said. “We want to make sure we’re teaching everything the state requires us to teach, and that we teach it well. We have high expectations of ourselves and of our students.” Thomas said the challenges with a school are greater than they were when he first began teaching 14 years ago. Technology, violence, bullying and other factors have torn through schools like a whirlwind, making instructors’ jobs all the more complicated, he said, but also more gratifying. “It takes a special person to be a teacher,” he said. “It’s a fine line to walk.” With three weeks under his belt, Thomas couldn’t be happier with his new position, and his faculty couldn’t be happier with him. “He’s awesome,” said Tammy Reichmuth, computer lab teacher. “The kids have really taken to him; they’re giving him hugs all the time already. He made the transition great for everyone.” Office administrator Barbara Foushee agreed, calling this school year “one of the best starts we’ve had.”

Knox Commander Brig. Gen. Donald Campbell, Jr. and Sen. Mitch McConnell were slated to celebrate the completion of a 600-person barracks complex at Fort Knox with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday morning. These barracks are one of seven other facilities being constructed for the Fort

Hood, Texas-based 3rd Brigade, 1st Infantry Division, which is currently deployed and is scheduled to move to Fort Knox in 2010. The barrack’s configuration is a ”1+1” setup, meaning each living unit will have two bedrooms and a shared bathroom and kitchen area. The $50 million complex

also uses geothermal power to help reduce Fort Knox’s energy footprint. Two of the leaders for the unit’s rear detachment at Fort Hood were scheduled to be at the ceremony so they can then inform their fellow deployed soldiers what living accommodations will be like at Fort Knox for the single enlisted soldiers.

Construction is ongoing at Ekron Elementary School, though new principal Jon Thomas says students and faculty are staying focused on “the light at the end of the tunnel.” Eight new classrooms will be added on to the building once the construction project is completed, which is expected to be sometime in March 2009.



Friday, August 29, 2008 Editorial

The News Standard - A3

Public meetings 101: Planning and Zoning, general public should learn how an open meeting operates This editorial does not address the Planning and Zoning Commission’s decision to deny the rock quarry rezoning that had many county residents hot and bothered last Thursday night. It’s futile to discuss such matters in a newspaper column. Instead, what this editorial aims to do is (1) educate the general public about open meeting SOP’s, to avoid any future displays of ignorance; and, (2) request that Planning and Zoning Commission Chairman Allen Flaherty conduct a public meeting properly and with authority, instead of buckling under the pressure of trying “to make everyone happy.” General public: Once a motion is seconded, it becomes open for discussion. Only after pertinent discussion, does that seconded motion then get voted upon. The hooting and hollering of “The motion has been seconded! Stop talking! Make a vote!” just makes you sound very misinformed of what is actually happening in front of you. Understand the rules before you start crying foul. P&Z: You gave yourselves a headache the day you signed up for the job. People should first and foremost admire your desire to serve on such a tumultuous committee; to be frank, your job’s not easy. However, is it your duty as Planning and Zoning Commission members to please a group of people directly affected by the outcome of your vote, or to abide by the written policy meant to govern your decision-making? One hundred people left the courthouse quite happy with you; they’re your best friends now that the rock quarry re-zoning was denied — but are 5,000 other county residents now disappointed in you for denying economic expansion in Meade County? General public: Passions run high when matters such as the rock quarry re-zoning meet you at a personal level. Many people spoke about their families and their children — surely the most important and precious things to be considered. However, you should take a few lessons from the mining representatives in attendance. Instead of laughing at the miners for holding your visual aid, clapping after every anti-quarry speech, interrupting the mining company’s presentation, and shouting comments while someone is speaking, try to locate your maturity. You pale in comparison to the professionalism of your mining nemeses. The matter has nothing to do with shirts and ties, lawyers, money or educational backgrounds; it has to do with acting like a grown-up. When you demonstrate the temperament of freshmen at a pep rally, it becomes difficult to take your points seriously — which is a shame, because most of you had very serious points to make. P&Z: Know what you’re voting on. Make a clear and concise motion before you start taking a role call. The quality of the commission comes into question when the procedure of making a motion has to be spelled out by the administrator. The commission needs to put making friends on the back burner and should answer the tough questions (i.e. is this re-zoning in compliance with the comprehensive plan?). Stretch out your spine, take a stand, make a motion, discuss it (without repeatedly referring to the matter as “a doozie”) and take the vote. This is an intricate decision; both a yay or nay creates a trickle effect for years to come. But procrastinating the vote only hurts both sides of the fence. Buckle down, buck up, and do what the county needs you to do.

stead, Miller and his fellow Democrats in the House saw fit to deny DeCesare a legislative victory – and residents more open government, sooner rather than later. Who’s calling who partisan, Mr. Miller? The secretary claims I want state government to “immediately put a listing of all government spending without careful review and analysis.” That’s code for “careful hiding and sanitizing.” The secretary thinks the information about how your money gets spent needs the “review and analysis” of Miller and his fellow bureaucrats. I, however, have great confidence that hardworking Kentucky taxpayers can perform their own adequate “review and analysis.” My own “review and analysis” of Miller’s attack is that it offers a classic modus operandi for slowing down progress: detract from the real issues, minimize urgency, review, send it to another committee to “take a look” at it, etc., etc., etc. He himself has consistently shown resistance to open government. As state treasurer, Miller denied open-records requests for unclaimed property funds and gave a

400-percent raise and questionable promotion to a top aide, Rebecca Brooke Parker, who accompanied him on a taxpayer-funded junket to Las Vegas. Miller said at the time, he couldn’t recall her presence. More transparency would help solve these kinds of mysteries. Post expenditures online, such as Parker’s, and neither Miller nor taxpayers would have to rely on a partisan’s memory! Taxpayers of all political stripes should demand that Beshear’s administration put information on state expenditures, contracts and payrolls online — just like New York is doing at www. Let the taxpayers of Kentucky get online and find out for themselves how much money was spent by the state Transportation Department, whose driveways got paved, which roads got four lanes that only needed two, and who benefited from the contracts. Who knows what else might turn up among such unfiltered, un-reviewed, un-analyzed information?

Road fund revenues take a much un-needed dip FRANKFORT — As we near the end of the second month of a new fiscal year, the numbers are starting to come in to verify what many of us unfortunately know all too well: The nation’s — and Kentucky’s — economy has seen better days. It wasn’t supposed to be that way. A recent report by the state’s budget director noted that in early 2007, “most of the key economic statistics showed the (nation’s) economy was robust and poised to reach even greater heights.” Production was up in 2007, but so was inflation and the cost of oil, which reached a then-worrisome $70 a barrel. Experts, however, regarded this surge in prices as temporary. But then the subprime mortgage crisis came to light early last fall, followed by a rapid increase in oil prices that topped $140 a barrel last month and a rapid decline in the housing market. Together, those three trends erased any momentum that had been building, causing the country’s production and employment growth to grind to a halt by this past spring. Not surprisingly, all of this

has had a negative effect on the state’s budget. Revenue for Kentucky’s General Fund — the heart of the budget, which influences such things as federal dollars and restricted funds like college tuition — grew by just 1.1 percent during the 2008 fiscal year. July’s growth was 1.9 percent, well below the 2.6 percent we need this fiscal year to maintain current spending. Still, the state’s budget director said “it would be premature to draw any conclusions at this time” on the fate of the current budget, since July is traditionally a slow month for revenue. A greater concern in the near future is the state’s Road Fund, which depends heavily on taxes collected at the pump and on the vehicles themselves. With people driving fewer miles and buying fewer vehicles, the Road Fund dipped by nearly two percent in July. It needs to grow by 5.5 percent this year to keep current and upcoming road projects on track. The state budget director’s office is not forecasting much change in Kentucky anytime soon. The office predicts more than 5,000 jobs

NEWS Yoga: Strengthening minds, bodies, the community A4 - The News Standard

By Kristie Serden and Barbara Kottke Meade County Public Library

With the ever-increasing attendance of Yoga classes throughout the United States, it is important to remember the lifestyle practice of Yoga is more than simple exercise. Yoga has many components in addition to the stretching, relaxing, or chanting most people are familiar with. Yoga is also easier to do than you may think. No matter the age, gender, or physical need someone may have, if they can breathe, they can step into any Yoga class at the Meade County Public Library (MCPL). The MCPL certified Yoga instructor, Barbara Kottke, specializes in Integrative Yoga Therapy, which combines gentle stretches and exercise, along with breathing and relaxation activities. Since the program’s inception in 2003, attendance has grown steadily, making it one of the most

Courthouse, Fiscal Court was first presented with the resume of a potential employee for the county attorney’s office. County attorney Margaret Matney made the recommendation to hire a new office administrator to help alleviate paperwork and increase the amount of assistance and information the department can offer. All six magistrates felt the applicant was well qualified for the position, though Matney’s recommendation fell short when the court voted to advertise the job opening for two weeks before someone is selected for hire. “I feel like it’s a good idea to advertise … so you give everybody the opportunity to put in for it,” said magistrate Herbie Chism. “We advertise for positions in the road department … we should do it across the board.” Magistrate Mark Hubbard agreed, and said whatever hiring procedure past Fiscal Courts have adhered to is irrelevant; the current administration should set a precedent for following the same policy for every county department. “Let’s stay true to form,” he said. Matney said in the past she was not required to advertise a position first; she could make a recom-

popular programs held at the library. Yoga simply means, “to yoke together” or “union.” It is as simple as “yoking” the breath to the movement. This type of practice is extremely beneficial to the mind, body and spirit. One of the largest misconceptions is that Yoga is a religion. However, as with anything else, practitioners may choose to use it as a religion. Yoga has been known to be both pleasing and beneficial; so many people adopt it as a way of life. Some use it as a means of staying physically flexible, while others use it for calming nerves or relaxing the body. After four years of study, I have not been made aware of anything within Yoga which conflicts with Christianity. In fact, it has been found to enhance and encourage behaviors that Jesus taught, such as nonjudgmental acceptance, peace, non-violence and forgiveness. Yoga helps to guide participants to look inward to

learn to accept themselves as they are, wherever they may be at that moment. Only through acceptance can any kind of change take place. This type of Yoga is not a quick weight loss or fat burning routine, although you may learn why you found yourself needing to lose weight. It will assist in understanding what bothers you emotionally, which may contribute to improper eating habits. Yoga also promotes gentle moving and stretching of the body to release toxins and assist in breathing fresh oxygen into the system, which has been found to aid in weight loss. There is a good amount of strengthening provided by Yoga as well. Using the body’s own weight instead of “free weights” helps to tone muscles and build strong bones. Yoga is fun, calming, relaxing and beneficial. The Yoga Alliance states the top 10 reasons to try Yoga are: Stress relief, pain relief, better breathing, flex-

ibility, increased strength, weight management, improved circulation, cardiovascular conditioning,

building focus on the present, and developing inner peace. The Meade County Pub-

lic Library offers Yoga classes every Wednesday at 10 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. in the library annex.

mendation to Fiscal Court and accept its vote. “It was my understanding that I present someone to you all and you all make the determination as to whether or not you agree to hire them,” Matney said. “It was not my understanding that I ever had to advertise for a position.” After further discussion, magistrate Steve Wardrip withdrew his motion to hire the individual and magistrate Tom Goddard withdrew his second of the motion. The court then voted unanimously to advertise for the position for two weeks before an appointment is made. A recommendation was made by Mark Gossett, director of the Meade County Solid Waste and Recycle Center, to fire an employee who was in violation of the county’s personnel policy. The individual has been placed on administrative leave without pay. The recommendation was voted through by magistrates, excluding Chism, who explained his no vote. “I think we need to discuss this,” he said. “There are a couple questions I would like to ask, but I don’t think it’s appropriate to do in open court … he’s already on administrative leave, so we have time to have a closed session sometime to discuss it.” Chism asked to go into closed session during Tuesday’s meeting, though the Kentucky Re-

vised Statutes prohibit an executive session from taking place if it isn’t prepared as part of the open meeting’s agenda. Gossett said the situation was not of dire immediacy, but added that if the county is going to promote a “no-tolerance” policy, then department heads need to have the ability to fire personnel in violation without waiting for Fiscal Court’s approval. “If we’re going to have a personnel policy that’s zero-tolerance, then we need to have the latitude to take care of the situation right then,” he said. “If that’s not how you want to do it, that’s fine, but just try … to get something in line so we know what the procedure is.” The biggest debate of the night occurred when Meade County Judge/Executive Harry Craycroft made a recommendation to fill a position on the Brandenburg-Meade County Industrial Authority. Two members’ terms have recently expired, John Lusk and Carl Austin. During the Aug. 12 Fiscal Court meeting, Craycroft

recommended Gerry Lynn and Bobby Skaggs fill the vacancies. Only Lynn was voted onto the board by a 4-3 vote, leaving one more position to be filled on the Industrial Authority. On Tuesday night, Craycroft recommended Austin remain on the authority and serve another term. “I’m confused, Judge,” said magistrate Chism. “I thought Mr. Austin had been replaced by Mr. Lynn … so are you recommending Mr. Austin take Mr. Lynn’s place, or Mr. Austin take his own place?” Craycroft said he was simply asking that Austin remain on the board to fill the second position. Magistrates seemed unsure of Craycroft’s recommendation, and asked him to spell it out several times. After a role call vote, the recommendation failed, 4-3, with magistrates Hubbard, Chism, Randall Hardesty and Tony Staples casting dissenting votes. “Then Mr. Lusk is not on the board, and Mr. Austin is not on the board as voted by Fiscal Court,” Craycroft said. “Their terms

are up.” Chism disagreed and read a statement from a state attorney, stating “a person’s term continues until another person is appointed and qualified.” Craycroft said he would disqualify Lusk’s position, and that an ethics charge may be filed since Lusk owns land that is in the area the Industrial Authority is trying to develop. Chism said as long as Lusk disqualifies himself from any votes that pertain to the land, he can serve fairly on the Industrial Authority without the situation being a conflict of interest. “Then you might as well not have the member on the board if he can’t take part in it,” Craycroft said. Chism reiterated what he said during the Aug. 12 meeting, that if this instance is an example of a conflict of interest, then Fiscal Court will have to evaluate other county board members for the same reason, as well. Craycroft said he would have another recommendation ready for the Sept.

9 Fiscal Court meeting. Subsequent to the adjournment of the special meeting, a work session was to take place during which magistrates were to review a proposed county-wide nuisance ordinance as composed by the Planning and Zoning Commission. Tony Coletta, Planning and Zoning Administrator, provided court members with a copy of the second draft of the ordinance, though most magistrates said it was the first time they had seen the copy. Coletta said he e-mailed each magistrate a copy of the second draft more than a month ago, though only two magistrates received the e-mail. Hubbard asked to not discuss the ordinance since he and other magistrates had not had adequate time to read and review the document. With a general consensus from court members, Craycroft and Coletta, the ordinance was not discussed and another work session addressing the ordinance will be scheduled.

Quarry From page A1 of zoning. 2. Whether or not the original zoning is aligned with the comprehensive plan. 3. Whether or not there have been significant economic, social or environmental changes in the climate of the area, that may have not been considered by the comprehensive plan that make the proposed zoning more appropriate. Only one of those three factors need apply for the approval to be considered. During the first public meeting regarding the rezoning, held July 17, the commission voted to table the issue until further information was attained. Bob Griffith, an attorney representing Meade County Quarry who hails from Big Spring, spoke first on behalf of the quarry and cited two goals that are part of the county’s comprehensive plan. Goal five, he read, “is to encourage industrial and economic development ... and recruitment within the community.” The second goal he highlighted was goal one, “to protect the small town and rural character of Meade County.” “It’s an important goal of the county that we encourage industrial development, but that we also protect these rural views ... which is what the quarry aims to do,” Griffith said. During a presentation by Scott Ely, spokesman for Meade County Quarry, he addressed concerns mentioned by the public during the July 17 meeting. “We made a conscious effort to listen to everybody,” he said. “Hopefully everyone here that wanted to speak with us has, and we’re always available.” During the presentation, Ely said the mine will be located 1,000 feet from Big Bend Road and a roadway lined with an “attractive dirt berm with trees” will help block any view of the actual quarry. He said most of the shipping and hauling will be done by barge, which would alleviate the amount of road traffic. He said the quarry would create 20 to 25 jobs for local workers, with an annual payroll of $750,000 to $1 million. He also said the quarry’s on-site labor would help generate revenue in the local economy. Once the drilling is complete, Ely said the potential exists for the quarry to be turned into a residential marina housing development. An important goal of the quarry is to “always reclaim

Victim From page A1 Kentucky State Police receiving a report of an attempted murder around 9:30 p.m. Upon arrival, officers found what they’re calling “one of the worst crime scenes” they’ve seen. According to police reports, the victim was severely injured from several lacerations. She was flown to University Hospital in Louisville where she un-

land responsibly.” “These are some of the hardest seams of rock in the world,” Ely said about the geological nature of the area. “I know that sounds like a bold statement, but there are only a few seams of rock that are actually as high of quality rock as what you have here in Meade County. “This is unique stone both from the soundness and abrasion, and the scrubber quality, which is a chemical quality that allows this rock to be used to clean air that comes out of power plants. So it has a significant environmental impact ... it’s a valuable resource that the state and the country needs.” Ely went on to discuss public concerns, saying surveys and permits have all been acquired and all standards have been met or exceeded. “If you really wanted to harm the environment, you wouldn’t be able to do it,” Ely said. “There’s constant cross-checks between various different departments, including the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife.” After the quarry’s presentation, Allan Flaherty, Planning and Zoning Commission Chairman, opened the floor to the public. David Bell, a resident of Big Bend for 35 years, recited a prepared speech in which he mentioned all of the “shoulds, woulds and coulds” of Ely’s presentation. In his statement, Bell asked the planning and zoning commission to “exercise the foresight and responsibility entrusted to you all. Do not change the zoning from agricultural to heavy industrial. Please do not be blinded by the dollar signs and conditional promises and plans and hollow and transparent presentations.” He went on to say that the interest of the mining company is to make money, not to protect Meade County. “You’re here to make money off of the county’s assets,” he said. Bell also asked the commission members to review a petition he had presented to them the day before the meeting, which contains the name and address of more than 110 people in opposed to the rezoning. Ely addressed the petition after the public session, saying the rezoning isn’t based on a popularity vote, but instead on whether or not it is in compliance with the specifics of the county’s comprehensive plan. More than a dozen concerned citizens spoke during the public hearing, the majority speaking out against the rezoning.

With three other quarries already in the Big Bend area — Wolf Creek Quarry, Hilltop Big Bend Quarry, Battletown Quarry and Mulzer Crushed Stone Quarry (in Indiana) — the public addressed noise from equipment and vehicles, vibrations and house damage due to blasting, dust that some people claimed instigated health problems and loss of wildlife habitat. Lora Bell, a teacher at Battletown Elementary School, asked the commission to “plan for the future, plan for our children and plan for the land in the county.” She went on to say that “we may be less populated in that part of Meade County, but we are a part of Meade County. We have quarries in our community now and the people in those areas bear the brunt of the destruction made by those quarries.” After a lengthy public session, spokespersons for Meade County Quarry were permitted by the commission to address some of the questions that were raised. As the planning and zoning commission discussed the rezoning and prepared to vote, Coletta had to intervene and ensure Flaherty was making a motion by procedure. Confusion arose when both quarry representatives and the public were unclear what specifically the commission was voting upon. An original motion by Flaherty was taken off the table to alleviate misinterpretation and to clarify the votes. Roll call votes were taken for all three KRS-mandated conditions. Commission members Mark Garverich and Sonja Redmon cast the only two votes that yes, the map amendment complied with the comprehensive plan. Garverich and Redmon also voted yes regarding the third criterion, while the other five commission members voted no. Commission members voted unanimously that the original agricultural zoning was appropriate. Subsequently, Flaherty motioned to deny the rezoning. Commission member Paul Cibloski seconded the motion, and a roll call vote was taken again. The motion to deny rezoning passed with a 5-2 vote. Redmon and Garverich cast the dissenting votes. With the planning and zoning commission’s recommendation to deny the change from A-2 to HI, the issue will now be passed on to Meade County Fiscal Court which will vote to either accept or reject the commission’s recommendation during the Sept. 9 Fiscal Court meeting.

derwent more than six hours of surgery on Tuesday. She identified Pine as her attacker and an investigation lead to his arrest. He was charged with first-degree rape and sodomy, first-degree burglary, and attempted murder. He is currently lodged at the Breckinridge County jail with a $1 million cash bond. According to a report made by the victim, after assaulting her, Pine pointed a gun at her and pulled the trigger several times,

though the weapon didn’t fire. He then began stabbing her. Trooper Steve Pavey, Public Affairs Officer for Kentucky State Police Post 4, said the victim’s grandchild, who is approximately 20 years old, was in the house during the attack, but sustained no injuries. Pavey also reported that Pine had no previous criminal record that he was aware of, though the investigation is ongoing. “I’m sure this investigation will take quite some time,” he said.

A toddler is the most hardnosed opponent of law and order, and he honestly believes the universe circles around him. In his cute little way, he is curious and charming and funny and lovable and exciting and selfish and demanding and rebellious and destructive. Comedian Bill Cosby must have had some personal experience with toddlers. He is quoted as saying, “Give me two hundred active twoyear-olds and I could conquer the world.” Children between 15 and 36 months of age do not want to be restricted or inhibited in any manner, nor are they inclined to conceal their opinions. Bedtime becomes an exhausting, dreaded ordeal each night. They want to play with everything in reach, particularly fragile and expensive ornaments. They prefer using their pants rather than the potty, and insist on eating with

More than one way to be crippled

“In the name of Jesus Christ, the Nazorean, walk!” — Acts 3:6

Several years ago, I was watching TV. It was some show featuring people who had been injured in one way or another. Some were victims of disease and some were victims of accidents. There was this young man in a wheelchair with one of his legs amputated. He was handsome with an athletic body. People had been naturally been attracted to him. He was a changed person since the accident. There he was, so angry about the unfairness of his situation. He was severely depressed about the loss of what used to be. It got to be too much. I turned the channel. There on the TV screen, in a close-up shot, was another handsome

They get out of the back seat and get behind the wheel. They stop being victims and start becoming victorious.

Blessed be the Lord God almighty

Psalm 145:3–5 says, “Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; And His greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise Your works to another, And shall declare Your mighty acts. I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty, And on Your wondrous works” (NKJV). “ How we love you, Father in heaven. How we praise you for all your mighty works.” We sing the words, but how often do we truly think of God’s mighty works on our behalf? Do your friends and

family know what God has done for us? When was the last time we declared His mighty works? Psalm 106 describes how the Israelites repeatedly forgot about God’s many kindnesses to them in the desert. When they stopped remembering God’s greatness, however, they started relying on themselves. They rebelled against God. Life became all about their rules and plans and happiness with devastating results. We can learn from the Israelites. Declaring God’s

Wild West BBQ strikes gold with authentic western fare By Jorena D. Faulkner

During the Gold Rush of 1848 to 1855, “forty-niners” far and wide hit the dusty deserts of the California landscape in search of the American dream, while gunslingers marauded the dusty trails of the Wild West. But huddling around a campfire eating slow-cooked pork and beans and smoked cuts of meat isn’t relegated to the cowboys of the “Old West” these days … not with a gold mine in neighboring Breckinridge County’s own backyard. Wild West BBQ — located at 7300 East U.S. Hwy. 60 in Garfield, Ky. — has beckoned passersby since August 2007 with the aroma of slow-cooked barbecue from its hand-designed monster smoker, “Smokezilla.” Weighing in at more than 1,000 pounds, “Smokezilla” is truly a sight to be seen. For anyone within a 20-mile radius, it’s undeniable … just look up and follow the smoke signals to find an authentic taste of the “Wild Wild West.” “I love it when folks stop in and tell me they were just driving by,” said Sam Kendall, Battletown native and co-owner of the venture. “But then they say the smell of the smoker got them and made them turn around and come back. I just love that! Sometimes people have to drive slower going up Highway 60 because of the smoke coming out of ‘Smokezilla’ — it nearly blocks the road. It is, after all, the world’s largest smoker.” Husband and wife team Sam and Beth Kendall — along with trusty meat production manager Russell Richards — handle the enterprise located just outside Irvington, Ky. The duo created Wild West BBQ as the initial start-up of a master plan that will eventually net the community a dining adventure worthy of a duel at high noon. “In the future, we’ll be including a Wild West museum, weekly vaudeville entertainment, and kid friendly games by day,” Sam Kendall said. “In the evening, we’ll have a saloon featuring live entertainment in an adult atmosphere … there’ll be something for everyone. We’re looking to franchise right now.” Beth Kendall hails from the “Lone Star State” of Texas and claims to have been born

with “barbecue sauce” in her bottle. She said the sheer size of “Smokezilla” reflects her upbringing down South where everything is “bigger.” Covering all aspects of the business, from running the smoker and cooking the side dishes, to harvesting farm fresh produce such as tomatoes, peppers and cabbage, Beth Kendall said she was born to barbeque. “I was born to do this,” she said. “I do believe there’s barbecue sauce in my veins. I make everything … green tomato salsa and I produce three different types of sauerkraut, including jalapeño sauerkraut.” Since retiring, Sam Kendall has actively participated in cowboy reenactments and shootout events to include Civil War Days held biennially in Brandenburg. Dressed in authentic cowboy attire, he greets customers with a “bang,” and although a local, packs enough personality to make him an honorary Texan. A philanthropist at heart, Kendall said he feels it’s his mission in life to give back to the communities that have brought him so much joy. Hosting several events throughout the year — such as the Wild West BBQ “Oinktober Fest,” which is held during the U.S. Hwy. 60 Yard Sale, Oct. 3 through 5 — Kendall hopes to raise money for worthy causes. “It’s my mission to support this community,” Kendall said. “That’s why we host ‘Oinktober Fest’ — last year we had nearly 6,000 people attend over a three day period. We put that on to raise money for ‘Camp Quality’ for children with cancer and other charitable organizations.” Wild West BBQ currently offers customers outside/deck dining and call ahead carryout of a multitude of savory smoked meats (Sam Kendall wouldn’t reveal the “secret ingredient” used in the process) and homemade side dishes created from naturally grown products from their very own farm. From barbecued sandwiches including pulled pork, chicken and whole brisket, to succulent ribs, chicken breasts, pork tenderloin and bratwurst, the Kendall’s can load up to 4,000 pounds of meat into “Smokezilla” in one foul swoop. Sam Kendall said that Wild West BBQ has even instituted a “Slow and Go” service for truckers or


LEFT: Wild West BBQ’s Beth and Sam Kendall are the proud owners of the world’s largest smoker, “Smokezilla,” which can cook up to 4,000 pounds of meat at one time. Sam Kendall said the secret to Wild West BBQ’s great smoked flavor, is the combination of oak, hickory and cherry wood. “The mixture is fine tuned to lend a mellow flavor to the meat,” he said. disabled customers. “We’ve got ‘Slow and Go’ service,” he said. “A trucker can call ahead 30-minutes out and we’ll get it ready and run it out to them.” Smoking with three types of wood, Sam Kendall says it’s a special recipe of oak, hickory and cherry wood that draws out the essence of the meat, creating a mild flavor which is complimented by one of the three specialty sauces created right on the premises. “The mixture (of various types of wood) is fine tuned to lend a mellow flavor to the meat,” Kendall said. “We use no artificial chemicals — such as Liquid Smoke — or charcoal … it’s all organic. We also do custom smoking for customers. They bring their meat to us, and we’ll smoke it for them.” Beth Kendall prides herself in creating a variety of homemade sauces that are now in such high demand, that the couple has began taking Internet orders on the Wild West BBQ Web site — selling the sauce by the pint or gallon and delivering it straight to the customer’s door. “We make everything all natural,” Beth Kendall said. “We cook all of our items from scratch using organic products. Our sauce is slowcooked on the smoker griddle for more than six hours — no additives go into anything we prepare. People have told us that our bourbon barbecue sauce is the best they’ve ever had.”

FreeCycle into cost savings By David Uffington Dollars and Sense Even better than a dollar stretched is a dollar that isn’t spent at all. It’s always good to get things you need for free. FreeCycle is an online network made up of 4,500 smaller groups around the world. Its main purpose is to keep things out of landfills, but what it means for you is free stuff that you need. Members offer things they want to give away or ask for things they need. No item is too small or large, it seems. You can find a new bottle of shampoo used only once (the buyer didn’t like it), or a washing machine that still has some life left in it but can’t be taken in a move. The list of requested items is just as diverse. Each FreeCycle group is managed by a moderator who makes sure everyone keeps to the rules. (Rules vary by group, but typically include

things like no selling of e-mail addresses, no free pets and no bartering or trading.) Signup can be a bit complicated, but you only have to do it once. Each group (broken down by towns or small areas) has a Yahoo Groups site where you can sign in to read messages or view the photos of items that members have posted. Or you can opt to have each listing sent to you in e-mail. (This is easier.) To read the FAQ and sign up, go to Your best bet is to start by reading the postings for a few days and then giving something away. This establishes your sense of fair play with the group. Craigslist is another site with a Free section, although this one is under the For Sale category. Check it out at and click your city or state on the right side of the screen. The best listings are the ones with pictures included. If there isn’t a photo,

you can reply to the ad and ask that one be sent to you. The standard cautions apply. Don’t put your phone number or address in your post. Ask for the sender’s phone number for any replies you get. That way you can call and weigh your own level of comfort in where/how to transfer the items. David Uffington regrets that he cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into his column whenever possible. Write to him in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475, or send e-mail to columnreply@gmail. com.

Sauces currently come in three varieties, “regular smokey” for a smokey semisweet flavor, “spicy Cajun” for a medium heat smokey flavor, and the coup de grace of Wild West BBQ, the bourbon barbecue sauce. The drive by eatery also offers a one-of-a-kind “Delta Sandwich” loaded with a barbecued slab bologna and Amish cheese, topped with coleslaw on Bunny Bread, kielbasa, potato and macaroni salad, coleslaw, cowboy beans, “tators” and onions — sizzled deck side in a cast iron skillet — and for a true taste of the “Old West,” cold pork and beans … just like Jesse James ate in the gun slinging era of the 1860s. But make sure to place order’s early, the Kendalls said items sell out quickly at times — especially the ribs. “You’ll need to call in early and reserve your rack,” Sam Kendall said. Sam Kendall said Wild West BBQ falls somewhere in between “Margaritaville and Wyatt Earp,” and has geared

the experience as a true adventure to anyone who happens to stop in. From a handmade teeter-totter named affectionately by customers’ children as the “Mary-Todder” (after presidential wife Mary Todd Lincoln), to the surrounding wildlife such as ducks and a tropical bird which perches atop a swing hanging from the rafters of the outdoor/ deck seating, Kendall said the goal is to make customers feel at home. “We don’t have any fancy pretenses here,” Sam Kendall said. “Our goal is to make customers feel at home … like they’re eating at their grand-

ma’s.” Wild West BBQ — located at 7300 East U.S. Hwy. 60 in Garfield, Ky. — is open Thursday through Sunday from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. For more information or to place an order, visit the Web site at, email wildwestbbq@dishmail. com, or call 270-536-3800.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY As cold weather approaches, it is important to take a few preventative measures to protect your home through the chilly months. Here is a checklist to help you prepare:

Feel around electrical outlets and switch-plates for cold air, add insulation where necessary. Look around doors and windows for gaps and potential places where warm air can escape & caulk or apply weather-stripping around problem draft areas. Replace the filter in your furnace. Have a heating/cooling expert look at your furnace if you are unsure of its efficiency. Disconnect hoses from outside faucets and turn off the water. Keep extra water and canned food in storage just in case. Replace old light bulbs with new compact fluorescent light bulbs.

Minor blue mold outbreak reminds farmers to practice caution By Carol L. Spence UK Dept. of Agriculture

LEXINGTON — A minor blue mold outbreak in Shelby, Henry and Oldham counties is a late-season reminder to tobacco farmers not to let their guards down just yet. Kenny Seebold, plant pathologist in the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, said it is unclear how much of the disease is out there. The confirmed sightings have occurred in a fairly tight-knit area around the adjoining borders of the three counties. Sporulating lesions were present in the Oldham County sample, as well as in an earlier sample taken near Chestnut Grove in Shelby County. The Shelby County plants showed lesions that appeared to be seven to 10 days old. Seebold thinks last week’s cooler temperatures, along with a few showers, were prime conditions for blue mold development and spread. “The disease could have been dormant over the last month and became active when a cold front passed through Kentucky about 10


Cool temperatures and rain showers created prime conditions for a recent blue mold outbreak in the tobacco fields of Shelby, Henry and Oldham counties. days ago,” he said. “We’re heading into a warming period - clear, sunny weather and warm temperatures in the daytime - which is unfavorable for blue mold.” Such weather will significantly slow down not only the speed at which the disease develops, but how far it spreads. Blue mold is caused

by Peronospora tabacina, an airborne fungus that prefers cool, humid conditions. Seebold assesses the risk level as low to moderate. “It’s still cool enough at night that in places where it’s active, it’s likely to stay active. It’s just that it won’t pick up and move very far, as long as it’s clear and sun-

ny during the daytime,” he said. Also working in farmers’ favor is the timing of the outbreak. The latest figures from the U.S. Department of Agriculture indicate that 11 percent of Kentucky’s tobacco has been harvested and 64 percent topped. Topped tobacco and plants

State fair project entries help hunger By Carole Goodwin 4-H Youth Extension Agent Several hundred 4-H’ers and University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension agents donated fair entries and canned food items to a Louisville food bank during 4-H Project Entry Day at the Kentucky State Fair. During the one day food drive, Kentucky Harvest received 285 canned food items and more than 1,000 fresh food and horticulture 4-H projects that were judged

that same day. This was the first time 4-H hosted a statewide food drive at the state fair. It was conducted in support of the USDA’s “Fight Hunger Initiative” and gave 4-H’ers a chance to give back and make a positive contribution to the host city. “The amount of donations we received was a lot more than we anticipated,” said Deana Reed, 4-H Youth Development Specialist. “Everyone was really positive about it, and it was for a good cause.”

Poverty and hunger are major concerns in the nation and state. The Annie E. Casey Foundation “KIDS COUNT” Data Book reported that 18 percent of children in the United States were living in poverty in 2006. In Kentucky, that number jumped to 23 percent. According to USDA Food and Nutrition Service, an average of more than 602,000 Kentuckians participated in the Food Stamp program during any given month in 2007. Joe Kurth, Assistant Direc-

tor for Kentucky 4-H Youth Development Programs, said the USDA initiative was an excellent cause for 4-H to participate in since both organizations strive to develop healthy, productive youth. “Our focus is on the growth and development of young people, which requires good basic nutrition,” he said. “Hunger is such a significant roadblock to good nutrition, and with our focus being on youth development, I am pleased that we could play a role in the initiative.”

treated for suckers are less susceptible to the fungus, which leaves a grayish-blue mildew on the undersides of leaves. “The pathogen needs an actively growing host to infect and produce spores,” Seebold said. “Once farmers top the tobacco and spray to control suckers, it pretty much shuts the plant down physiologically. You get some leaf maturity, but you don’t get the active growth. So those plants tend to be a lot less susceptible.” Due to weather patterns, untopped tobacco southeast of the infected counties could be most affected by the outbreak. Seebold said farmers should base their decisions to apply fungicides on the age of the crop and whether a particular field lies in the path of spores. “If they’ve topped their crop and applied their sucker control material, there’s really not much they need to do,” he said. “But if you have susceptible crop in the field, you need to be looking for it ... If you’re in the right kind of environment, you can still get some pretty good spread inside a field, and it may be worth considering applying

The FFA is supervised locally by advisors Jeremy Hall, Mark Adams, and Josh Mitchum.

a fungicide if the crop is far enough away from being topped and cut.” The appearance of a lot of target spot, another fungal disease, is also a reason for applying a fungicide application. Target spot causes major leaf damage if left uncontrolled. Seebold called target spot an opportunistic disease, which will often settle into the damaged lower leaves of plants that have been compromised with blue mold. He said observers have seen a big jump in target spot activity over the past two weeks, particularly in low-lying fields or those that have been planted in tobacco for more than two years. He recommends Quadris at a rate of eight or more ounces per acre. With good coverage, this application should give a couple of weeks’ protection against blue mold and target spot.

Campbell, Carroll give BRAC update at CoC luncheon By Laura Saylor

Two keynote speakers were featured at the August Chamber of Commerce luncheon, both of which elaborated upon the impact of Fort Knox’s expansion on Meade County. Sen. Carroll Gibson (R, KY-17) and Fort Knox Brig. Gen. Donald Campbell were welcomed warmly by members of the Meade County Chamber of Commerce who attended the Aug. 21 luncheon held at the Farm Bureau Building at the fairgrounds. After an introduction by Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Paul Poole, Gibson offered a few words about the “tremendous impact” Fort Knox’s base realignment and closure (BRAC) will have on the area. “The burden for the time being may be on some, such as schools, but the benefits in the end will be the best Kentucky has seen in many, many, many years,” Gibson said. He went on to say that

although Meade and surrounding counties will feel the most direct impact of the realignment, the entire Commonwealth will feel the ripple effects of BRAC. “I will do, as many of us will, everything we can do to keep jobs created through BRAC in Meade County, and in Kentucky,” he said. Williams spoke secondly, detailing the current status of Fort Knox and what lies ahead in the immediate future. “We typically have 4,000 training, but right now we have 5,000,” he said. “We’re busy.” He said the post would expand by 6,500 total personnel — military and civilian — over the next few years. BRAC is due to conclude by 2011. “Through this whole process … we have to grow the Army so the same soldiers aren’t repeatedly going back to Afghanistan and Iraq,” Williams said. “We can’t miss a beat. The Army will not accept a gap in training.” As BRAC continues to

progress, the Armor Center and School will relocate to Fort Benning, Ga,. while the Human Resources Command Center (HRC) will be established on post. Williams called Fort Knox’s realignment a “transition from training to a multifunctional facility.” The approximate 1,000 square foot HRC is slated to be operational by the summer of 2010. “From an economic standpoint … all of it will contribute greatly to your local economy,” Williams said. “It’s a tough challenge now, for sure, but considering all the people and families that will be moving in … it’s worth it. But it’s a challenge. It’s like picking up Brandenburg and moving it outside Atlanta.” Updates on units presently deployed were given, as well as a recap of a recent visit by West Point Military Academy cadets. “(The cadets) used to have a bit more luxurious stay when they came to Fort Knox to train in the past,” Williams said. “The

Army has gotten tougher. They took a 16-hour bus ride, stepped off, got a ‘welcome to Fort Knox’ then went on to training. Three days later they’re back on the bus.” The military academy students were trained in mounted maneuver during their stint on the training fields. Also speaking at Thursday’s luncheon was John Horton, on behalf of the Lion’s Club International. A club is in the process of forming in Meade County, though more members are needed. For more information about the Lion’s Club, contact the Meade County Cooperative Extension Service Office at 270-4224958. The luncheon, which was catered by Home Plate Family Restaurant in Brandenburg, was open to all Meade County Chamber of Commerce members. The monthly luncheons are held the third Thursday of every month. For more information, visit www.meadekychamber. org.

Clothes Closet receives sizable donation from Radcliff Presbyterian By Jorena D. Faulkner

Meade County Clothes Closet and Food Pantry Director Linda Whelan and assistant director Karen Harris were recently surprised by a visit from two “community angels” representing the Radcliff Presbyterian Church. On Aug. 25, 2008, Anita Feemster and James Bandy — both elders with the Radcliff Presbyterian Church — presented Whelan and Harris with a check for $250 and a promise to provide the donation on a quarterly basis to assist in the organization’s ongoing mission to provide clothing, furniture, utility assistance and food for families in need. “We heard about the (Feb. 5) tornado and a lot of us at the church are from the Meade County area,” Feemster said. “We

knew (the Clothes Closet) was devastated — we were devastated — and we knew they were in need.” Whelan said the generous donation will prove to be of considerable benefit to the community at large. “It means extra food that we can buy,” Whelan said. “We help people out with utilities and many different things.” The Meade County Clothes Closet and Food Pantry’s previous location was one of the hardest hit by the Feb. 5 tornado. The structure sustained irreparable damage, leaving the organization scrambling to find a new home in order to continue its mission of serving a local community in need. Bandy said he and Feemster had been scheduled to meet with Whelan on the morning of Feb. 6. “The tornado went through and I saw the

pictures on the TV,” Bandy said. “There was the Clothes Closet with two sides missing out of it. So I called over here to Community Action and then I called (Feemster) and told her we couldn’t go (to the scheduled meeting) and she asked ‘why?’ I said, ‘because they’re not there anymore.’” “I was over there a few days after (the tornado),” he said. “I looked … and the front and sides … there were just two walls. That’s all that was left of it.” Whelan said Marion Barnes, Glad Tidings Christian Center pastor and board chairman of the Meade County Clothes Closet and Food Pantry, contacted her early the next day to discuss the damage. “I got a call the next morning from Pastor Barnes,” Whelan said. “He told me that one of the lo-

cal police had told him that we were missing a wall and this and that. And I thought about it, and I thought it might just be the little add-on room we had put in the back. I got up to come down here and they wouldn’t let me in town, but I started seeing pictures of (the destruction) and I knew we were in trouble then.” Natural disaster aside, in record time the organization achieved a milestone when it opened its new location to the community on March 29 in Shopping Park Shopping Center (Save-A-Lot center) at 2320 ByPass Road. Whelan said

since the re-opening, “The Closet” has resurfaced formidably and is well on its way to becoming stronger than ever thanks to the community and donations from organizations such as the Radcliff Presbyterian Church. “We’re getting back to where we were,” Whelan said. “We’re so grateful for this donation.” Having many congregation members who are residents of Meade County, the Radcliff Presbyterian Church has pledged to continue its support of the organization with several commensurate donations throughout the year.

GREENWAVE 2008 ‘Wave face athletic Fern Creek

The dog days of summer are over...

It's time for FOOTBALL

By Ben Achtabowski

The crack of helmets and crunch of pads will be heard around the state Friday night, as the Kentucky high school football season begins. The Greenwave football starts its ’08 campaign at Fern Creek. The game will pit the preseason No. 11 ranked Fern Creek Tigers against a rebuilding No. 16 ranked Meade County team in another season-opening scuffle. Last year, the Tigers eked out a 19-14 win against the Greenwave. Meade County head coach Larry Mofield knows the game will be a battle due to the consistent quality of teams Fern Creek produces. “The thing Meade County that Fern Creek Athletics is going to have Greenwave is athletes,� Varsity Mofield said. Football “Any time you vs. have athletes Fern Creek Tigers you have a 8 p.m. at Fern Creek chance to win football games. It doesn’t matter if you do well on offense or defense. Sometimes you can outplay a team with superior athletes and not be successful. Athletes make athletic plays. They are going to a be force with whoever they play because of their athletes.� The team has an outstanding offensive duo in quarterback Bryan Hynes and running back Jimmie Welsh. Welsh is considered to be one of the best ‘backs in the Louisville area. “They have a good quarterback and a good running back,� Mofield said. “Teams like them may have a few kids that run a 4.4 forty or a 4.5, maybe even more than just a few kids. We can’t put a whole lot on how big the team is. I’ve been here 18 years and we never outsized anyone, and probably never will.� The Tigers’ returning running back from last year, Welsh, is looking to trump his junior season numbers of 1,267 yards

Last year was a dream season for the Meade County Greenwave Football Team. After beating 10-win Male in the playoffs and losing valiantly to perennial powerhouse and eventual state-runner up St. Xavier, the Greenwave look to build off the success of last season. However, it may be tough in the absence of 20 graduated seniors. “We lost 20 seniors,� said head coach Larry Mofield. “We lost a good group of seniors. About nine or 10 of them didn’t come off the field. They played for us the

I just run straight and pared I am and how ready I make sure I’m running hard.” am to play.”

With all the preparation Tyler Mattingly has endured, the pressures of the quarterback position are trivial to him at this point. “I’ve lived with pressure all my life with my dad being in the same house,” he said with a grin. “I mean, it’s a lot of pressure because the ball is in your hands every play. It’s pressure, but if you can’t handle it, don’t be a quarterback.” Mofield feels Tyler Mattingly is well qualified to lead the offense. “He’s done a good job for us so far,” Mofield said. “He’s worked hard all this off-season. He understands the team. He’s a very coachable young man. He started quarterback on the freshmen team and played two years of JV ball. He may not have a lot of Friday night experience but he has a lot of football under his belt. It’s not like he hasn’t taken a snap before.” The Greenwave will also boost an old face in a new position. Tyler Crow, a 5’9,” 217-pound junior, moves from the offensive line to fullback. “He seems to enjoy that move,” Mofield said. “He’s a load running back. He has to learn how to run behind his pads and hold onto the football. But he can really help us out. He’s a tough kid and strong.” In the scrimmage against Daviess County last Thursday, Crow scored two touchdowns — one from the goal line and another off a 70-yard fullback screen pass. Crow will share time with junior fullback Ricky Funk. Mofield says Funk is the most improved player of the offseason. “(Funk’s) effort has been really good in practice and really good in both the scrimmages,” he said. “He worked hard in the winter. He got himself stronger. I think he’s a young man that can really help us.” Mofield has a simple strategy when it comes to platooning players: He doesn’t. Rath-

You cause we’re not blessed by a got to come back and play the kid or kids who can take one next play.”

The team may start two freshmen and two sophomores. Freshman Thomas Wilson and sophomore Ryan Stinnett are battling for the starting corner positions. Overall, the team may struggle a little because of the lack of experience, but that doesn’t necessarily equate to an unsuccessful season. “Our lack of experience is going to be our weakness, especially during the early season,” Mofield said. “I like the kids we have and their work ethic. They show up for practice. It’s difficult to say what our strengths are early in the season. I would like to say by the middle of the season that our strength is at defense and rushing the ball. That’s the formula of a good football team. We won’t know that until down the road.” The team also has one of the most arduous schedules in the state, according to Mofield. “I think year in/year out we have one of the toughest schedules in the state,” he said. “That’s by design. We want to try to make the playoffs and win in the playoffs. If you don’t play good teams during the season, then you won’t be ready to play good teams in the playoffs.” The team opens up with Fern Creek and John Hardin — two of the preeminent teams in the area. Meade County also boasts a rigorous district schedule that includes North Hardin and Nelson County. “You have to go through some growing pains,” Mofield said. “A lot of people would like to see the team win 10 games against a bunch of rinky-dinks. We’re not going to play those types of teams and we don’t have any rinkydinks on our schedule.” With a tough road ahead, this young team will fight for every win in a very competitive district and region. Once key players become healthy, the Greenwave just might repeat last year’s dream season.

Meade County dominated all aspects of the game as they improved to a 6-3 overall record. “The girls have really improved since their first game,� said head coach Michele West. “They’ve improved a lot with their tips and really setting up the ball nicely.� Maris Harreld lead the team in assists with seven.

By Ben Achtabowski

The start of a new football season welcomes old faces, new faces and a few unknown faces to the Greenwave roster. Every member of the 42-person Greenwave team will play a pivotal role in the season’s success. Bellow are some players fans may want to become familiar with this season.

The old face

One of the only players returning with significant playing time last season is running back/linebacker, Alex Furnival, also known as “Furn.� The 5’9,� 160-pound senior is ready to eat up yardage on offense and eat up running backs on defense. Head coach Larry Mofield’s philosophy is defense first. He’d rather see his players get a breather on the offensive side and be ready for defense. Furnival reflects that idea when asked if he’d rather have a big hit or a big run. “I’d rather have a big hit,� he said after a few moments of pondering. “There’s nothing like hitting someone hard. If you have a big defensive stop, that’s a huge momentum swing for the whole team. There’s nothing better than hitting someone else hard.� Furn is also the quiet leader for the Greenwave. Most of the time, he directs by actions and leaves the coaching to the coaches. “I don’t talk a lot,� he said. “I try to be a leader, but more of a silent leader is my style. I’ll say things when things need to be said. I just tell (the new players) the varsity game is a little bit faster than JV. I try to give advice, but without sounding like a coach — nothing overbearing. I don’t try to tell them something they already know.� Once a superstitious player, Furnival now has whittled his pregame superstitions to the simple action of lacing his cleats. “I’m not too superstitious,� he said. “I always lace my right foot then my left foot — nothing too big. I just get mentally focused and keep to myself before a game. I think I’ve kind of grown out of my superstitions.� One thing that gets Furnival focused is listening to music. Rap star Lil’ Wayne is his muse of choice. “Right now we don’t have a radio in the locker room, but we’re working on that,� he said. “Last year, we listened to Lil’ Wayne and a little bit of Slipnot. We’ll probably listen to that this year. It gets you pumped.� Pumping up Furnival more than the heavy beats of Lil’ Wayne, is running out onto the football field every Friday night in the fall. “You can’t describe it,� he said about climbing down the stairs onto the football field. “That’s what you’re thinking during summer practices. Coming down the steps and you see the lights, the sounds, and the smells. You just think about that moment and it keeps you going and working hard (during the offseason). Peo-

ple ask at school what it’s like, but if you haven’t done it, you don’t know. It’s awesome. You see all the people and you come out with all that emotion. Football is played with a lot of emotion and that definitely gets the emotions going.� Whatever music is blaring into his headphones and whichever shoe he decides to lace first, one thing’s for sure: Once Furn hits that field, opponents beware ‌ on both sides of the ball.

and 10 touchdowns. Quarterback Hynes threw 1,858 yards and 25 touchdowns. The team did graduate many of Hynes’ targets — regardless, Fern Creek will return one of the most potent offenses in the area. The Tigers’ home crowd may not make for cordial confines to the Greenwave team, but that’s part of football, Mofield said. “They have the former defensive coordinator of UofL,� he said. “They got it going on up there. For all I know, they’ll have a Goodyear blimp there during the game. But it will be a good atmosphere. It will be exciting.� Fern Creek may be more athletic than Meade County, but Mofield feels his players can counteract athleticism with “execution of

The new face New quarterback Tyler Mattingly has been bred for this season. His father, Tim Mattingly, is the defensive coordinator for the Greenwave, which means Tyler Mattingly has grown up around the game and has come to eat, sleep and breathe football. “I’m definitely ready for the season to begin,� Tyler Mattingly said. “You have to practice. It may not be the funnest thing, though it’s one of those things you have to do, but playing is what it’s all about. Now that the seasons here, I’m ready to hit other people instead of our own.� Tyler Mattingly has paid his dues and has certainly earned the starting role as play caller. “Last year I ran scout team,� Tyler Mattingly said. “So I got to go against first team defense. That probably got me ready more than anything. I was going up against our best team.� He also has seen a fair amount of play on the JV team along with being the understudy of former quarterback J.L. Cannady. “JV helped me out a lot and even freshman year was very helpful,� Tyler Mattingly said. “I learned a lot from J.L. (Cannady) and all the coaches up here.� Before every game Tyler — like Furnival — keeps to himself and focuses. “I listen to music and just get into a groove,� he said. “I usually just sit by myself in my locker and just keep to myself. I think over assignments I have to read during the game.� Like much of the team and many popular athletes in the world — including the impervious Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps — Tyler Mattingly listens to Lil’ Wayne and Young Jeezy before the game. Like Young Jeezy’s lyric “And all eyes on me like a microscope,� expect Tyler Mattingly to handle the pressure. Keep an eye out on this upstart quarterback.

The unseen face Linemen are always overlooked. Lost amid the mass of muscle, helmets and pads in the cluster of chaos, an unseen skill and determination

is exuded by every lineman on the field Senior Anthony Ruelas is no exception. He may not get his name in the stat book for touchdowns — in fact he might not touch the ball all season — but if there’s one player who can influence the game it’s Ruelas. A defensive tackle and offensive center, this will be his second season as a starter for the Greenwave. The love for the game is almost an understatement for Ruelas. “It’s the best experience (running out onto the field),� Ruelas said. “This is the best part of my life so far. Every Friday, I look forward to every Friday.� The senior leader tries to pass on his experience and knowledge to any player that will listen. “I help out anyone that needs it,� he said. “I tell them different techniques. I let them know what to do during certain plays.� The season couldn’t start soon enough for Ruelas as the grueling summer “twoa-day� practices are over and the season is on the horizon. “They were more like ‘four-a-days,’� he said. “They were long. The heat was fine this year. It wasn’t nearly as bad as it was last year.� Ruelas, like teammates Furnival and Tyler Mattingly, listens to a “little bit of rap.� “I just gear up and get hyped,� Ruelas said. “I just love playing the game. Lil’ Wayne gets me pumped up for sure.� Ruelas will need all the adrenaline he can conjure up as he faces crafty offensive linemen all night long. “I love taking on a trapping guard,� Ruelas said. “You can tell when they come and you just get ready to knock them out. I love to hit them.� Poor trapping guards; they won’t know what hit them this season.

fundamentals.� “Most of the time it’s going to come down to blocking, tackling, execution, and mental preparation,� he said. “I’ve seen us win games before against teams we shouldn’t have even been on the field with. But we did things correctly. We kept our shoulders squared to the line of scrimmage. We attacked well. Those things you can control. We can’t control a kid running a 4.4 forty.� Tyler Mattingly, the starting Quarterback for the Greenwave, is ready for his first game as a starter. “Of course Fern Creek is a big game,� Mattingly said. “It’s the season-opener. Everyone will be pumped for it.� The 2008 season kicks off at 8 p.m. at Fern Creek High School.

Lady Waves split with Indiana foes Seat By Ben Achtabowski It appeared two different teams played for the Lady Waves soccer team Monday night. The first half of the game featured an unaggressive team set back on its heels. The second half welcomed a powerhouse team that scored three goals in the last 18 minutes of play. After a rough start, the Lady Waves (2-2) went on to beat the Corydon Central Lady Panthers, 3-0, Monday night at Corydon Central High School. “I don’t know if the girls were overconfident,” said Meade County head coach Dan Shook. “Usually, we have some pretty good success against Corydon. I think the girls remember those games. I told them before the game not to expect anything. (Corydon) may have improved a lot over the last year. And they did.” The game was delayed more than 30 minutes after confusion regarding when the game was scheduled to start. The referees anticipated a 6 p.m. start, while the teams were ready for a 5:30 p.m. game. Both teams waited anxiously for the referees to arrive. “I think they were ready to go at 5:30 p.m. and that 30-minute delay got to them,” Shook said. “They may have lost their focus and that’s my fault. I have to keep them in focus.” The much-improved Corydon team kept up with the Lady Waves during the first 40 minutes of the game. Most of the half was played in the Lady Waves’ end of the field. “They were quicker, handled the ball well, and were a lot more aggressive than the previous years,” Shook said about the Lady Panthers. “We’re still trying to improve that part of our

find our feet.” Earlier in the season, Pollock explained his concern on the offensive end. For the time being, those concerns were alleviated. The scoring started with 18 minutes left in the first half, when Ryan Miller passed the ball up the middle to Zack Brown, who then kicked the ball past the Corydon Central goalie. The game looked to remain interesting when the Panthers answered back less than a minute after the Greenwave goal. Corydon’s goal came as a surprise, when one of its midfielders boomed a kick from almost midfield right into the face of a gusty wind. The ball hung in the air and appeared to play tricks on Greenwave goalie Jordan Compton. It sailed over his outstretched arm to tie the game, 1-1. Compton ended the game with seven saves. “We didn’t really close down on them,” Pollock said. “They were passing the ball around and we didn’t expect them to shoot out there. When they were warming up, they were taking shots from out there. It’s not a bad strategy to have. You have a keeper not paying attention, and everyone else not ready for it. Sometimes, it just catches you off guard.” That was really the only time Corydon threatened to score for the remainder of the game. It was all Meade County which scored its second goal with 12 minutes left in the half, as Quintin Franke hooked a shot from the top of the

That’s something we’re constantly trying to improve.” The Lady Waves then started to push the ball during the second part of the first half, getting off nine shots, but none found the back of the net. The team finished with 15 shots in the game, while the Lady Panthers only had four. The match was deadlocked at 0-0 at the half. Shook couldn’t figure out what happened to the team’s offense throughout the first half. “I talked to them at halftime, trying to get them pumped up,” he said. “But again, the first five minutes of the second half, we were on our end of the field. It was like I didn’t talk to them.” After several minutes into the second half, Meade County moved the ball up the field and created some offense. “They were looking better in the second half,” Shook said about his Lady Waves team. “The passes were better and they just weren’t looking to kick the ball up the field and by the end of the game they really connected on their passes.” Finally, with 18:22 left, the Lady Waves finally put a goal on the board. Junior Ashley McIn18-yard line that found the top right corner of the goal. Then, with one minute left in the half, a Panther defender mishandled the ball and turned it over to sophomore Ethan Madison. He then passed the ball to Brown who was on a breakaway and slipped the ball past Corydon’s goalie to make the score 3-1. All the goals up to this point were created by the Greenwave’s speed and ability to place the ball. “I think (speed) is a big asset for us,” Pollock said. “Especially when we tried to take the ball outside and our players were able to run the ball down. Over top, we did well, too. When we got the timing down the players were able to run through (the ball) and keep their momentum. That’s a good asset to have.” The second half continued to be dominated by the Greenwave. Senior Kerry Rupe was tripped inside the 18yard box, which gave the Greenwave a penalty kick. Senior Logan Raley scored on the kick to make the score 4-1. Senior Mike West then scored the fifth and final goal on another penalty kick midway through the second half. During the rest of the game, the Greenwave played “keepaway” and diffused any attack by the Panthers. “I was really satisfied with our defensive effort,” Pollock said. “Everyone was really composed and working well together. They were having a little trouble moving the ball quickly at the beginning when we were setting up our offense. But overall it was solid.” The Greenwave’s next game is at North Hardin at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

tosh received the ball from junior Rebecca Hail in the middle of the field and chipped it over the goalie’s head for her first goal of the season. Then, with six minutes left in the game, the Lady Waves extended their lead. “I ran some various combinations of girls,” Shook said. “I was just trying to get something going and see what girls worked together well. In fact, I used some combinations I’ve never tried before.” That included moving junior Lindsey Andrews from defense to midfield, which resulted in the Lady Wave’s second goal of the game. Andrews found herself on a breakaway and finished it by slipping the ball just underneath diving goalie Callie Franks. “I had Marissa Mooreman back in Lindsey’s spot,” Shook said. “It’s a good feeling to be confident in Marissa (Mooreman) back there and move Lindsey (Andrews) up to get our offense jump-started.” The Lady Waves put the final nail in the coffin when sophomore Kristen Benton scored at a tough angle just inside the corner of the 18-yard box. Stephanie Menser had four saves in her shutout effort. After a three-goal game, the Lady Waves

aim to keep that offense jump-started. Shook sees that offensive drive in many of his players. “We have some girls that are anxious to score,” he said. “They want to score.”

Waves lose to Floyd Central (Ind.) Last Saturday, the Lady Waves participated in the Eastern Girls College Soccer Showcase. The event pins Kentucky high school teams against Indiana teams. The Lady Waves faced a fast and aggressive Floyd Central team and lost 4-1. Junior midfielder Jesse Morgan scored the lone Lady Wave goal with 24 minutes left in the game, nailing a shot from 30 yards out to make the score 1-1. But the Floyd Central Highlander team’s offense answered back, scoring its second goal 30 seconds later. The Highlanders scored a total of three goals in the second half. The Lady Waves were out shot, 13-4.

Waves drop Bullitt East The Lady Waves faced Bullitt East last Thursday and won, 1-0. Senior midfielder Ashley Lazaros scored an unassisted goal midway through the second half. The Lady Waves out shot Bullitt East 14-2 .

20 car — it’s been a dream come true,” said Logano. “I’ve always been watching this car and watching Greg Zip (Greg Zipadelli, No. 20 car crew chief) and all the guys working, and Tony (Stewart) working on the thing. Couldn’t be more excited to get in a car like this — representing Home Depot with over 300,000 associates — couldn’t really ask for anything better. Looking forward to working with all the guys. Kyle (Busch) and Denny (Hamlin) are awesome guys to work with -- so that will be real neat. Working with Joe (Gibbs) and J.D. (Gibbs) — like I have for three years. Hopefully, we’ll have continued success with the 20 car.” The 18-year old Nationwide driver just became eligible to drive in NASCAR in May and has just 10 starts in his career, but he’s been a development driver for JGR since he was 15. Stewart won a pair of NASCAR Cup titles in the ride and now Zipadelli will have a new challenge with a new young driver. Logano won in just his third Nationwide Series start at Kentucky earlier this year and he has seven top-10 finishes in just 10 starts. Due to NASCAR’s minimum-age requirement (18), Logano had to wait three years for May 31 of this year – when he climbed into the No. 20 JGR Nationwide Series car and made his inaugural start at Dover International Speedway. It may have been the series’ most-anticipated debut since Dale Earnhardt Jr. made his first start 12 years ago at Myrtle Beach, S.C. Most of NASCAR’s major teams tried to sign Logano to a development deal at age 15 — an age which NASCAR legend Mark Martin said Logano was ready to be driving in the Nationwide Series. “Well, you know, to be real honest with you, I don’t think that NASCAR has ever seen anything quite like Joey Logano,” said Martin last week. “I haven’t spotted the next Joey Logano. They are far and few. I know there are some other real prodigies out there and there’s really some special drivers out there that

are just now turning 18. But I don’t think there’s anybody in Joey’s league ready to hit the circuit.’’ Logano has won at every level he’s raced at – before and after JGR signed him in 2005. Last year Logano swapped the lead 14 times with former Daytona 500 winner Kevin Harvick before winning the inaugural NASCAR Camping World Series East race at Iowa Speedway – he went on to win Rookie of the Year and the championship in the series as well. In May, Logano led 257 of 312 laps in his inaugural ARCA RE/MAX Series start and won the Carolina 500 at Rockingham, a regular stop for NASCAR until five years ago. “I did talk to Joey after the race at Rockingham where he made the competition look; embarrassed the competition,’’ said Martin. “He’s going to bring a lot of — I predict he’s going to bring a lot of excitement to NASCAR yet this year.’’ Much like JGR teammate Kyle Busch, Logano had to wait until he reached NASCAR’s age-limit to race. Now he’s going to be the youngest driver in racing’s top series. “There’s experience and maturity,” said JGR President J.D. Gibbs. “I think for him the way things are he’s more mature than most guys out there. From an experience standpoint, we really felt — we were real careful from day one and we didn’t want to rush him -- he’s been here three years. If it took him three more years to get to Cup that would be fine. The reality of it is we watched everything he did running — really watching him last year in the Camping World Series and watching him test with our guys. “I think what you saw is a guy — who the talent is there. Now, we’ll have to work with him — there’s a lot of stuff — I’m not worried about the on-track stuff as much as the off-track stuff. That’s a lot required of him to be doing all that. With his family surrounding him and our guys we’ll be in good shape. As far as the length — we’ll just say it’s a multi-year agreement and we’ll kind of live with that and we’re very excited about that.”

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A little "wool-gathering" for the usually productive Lamb is all right if it helps you unwind. But be careful; too much daydreaming can put you behind schedule in your work.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A work problem is close to being resolved. Now you can go ahead and celebrate the week, accepting invitations from friends who enjoy your company.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Getting your new plan accepted won't be a major hassle if you have the facts to back it up. Your supporters are also prepared to help you make your case. Good luck.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Dealing with a pesky job problem might be time-consuming but necessary. The sooner you get this situation settled, the sooner you can move on to other matters.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) Career advancement is favored thanks to your impressive work record. On the personal side, you should soon hear some good news about an ailing family member.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) There might be mixed signals from a certain someone who doesn't seem all that certain about his or her intentions. Best to sort it all out before it becomes more confusing.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Get all the facts about that investment "opportunity" before you put even one dollar into it. There could be hidden problems that could prove to be costly.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Compromising on a matter you feel strongly about not only ends the impasse, but can be a win-win deal for all. Remember: Scorpios do well with change.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) With all the demands you currently have to deal with, accepting the help of family and friends could be the wisest course to take at this time.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Recent upsetting incidents might have left you with a big gap in your self-assurance. Refill it by spending time with those who know how worthy you really are.

Last Week’s Solutions

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A dispute about money needs to be resolved quickly, before it festers into something more serious. Consider asking an impartial colleague to mediate the matter.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A soft approach could be more effective than making a loud demand for the information you need. You might even find yourself with more data than you expected.

BORN THIS WEEK: You're sought out for the wonderful advice you're able to offer to others. And sometimes you even take it yourself. © 2008 King Features Synd., Inc.

FEATURE Eddie Montgomery has something new to be proud of Friday, August 29, 2008

B10 - The News Standard

For Eddie Montgomery, being a member of the hottest duo in country music is a dream come true. But this self-described Kentucky country boy isn’t basking in the glory of success; he’s following through on plans to give back to his homeland. After growing up in far less than ideal conditions, fame and fortune came quickly when he teamed up with Lexington native Troy Gentry. Since gaining their first record deal in 1999, the pair has soared to the top of the industry and currently has the number one song on the country charts with “Back When I Knew It All.” One country music magazine has reported that Montgomery-Gentry is “slowly replacing Brooks & Dunn as country music’s super duo.” “The Good Man above has blessed me beyond my wildest dreams,” says the Perryville native, while standing amid several pieces of earth-moving

equipment in a field just south of Harrodsburg. The mega star says he is currently performing with Toby Keith and is grateful for a short break in the schedule of their tour, dubbed “The Biggest and Baddest.” With dust covering his boots and sans his trademark long black coat, Montgomery looks more like a construction worker than an entertainer of world-wide acclaim as he wipes away perspiration caused by the August heat. On or before New Year’s Day, plans call for the now barren land on which he is standing to contain the first phase of a commercial development called “Skylar’s Landing,” named after his granddaughter. The centerpiece for the development will be Eddie Montgomery’s Steakhouse, a unique, log restaurant resembling a lodge. Seating is planned to accommodate 300 guests in the 16,000 square foot building.

A main feature of the eatery will be a stage with professional sound and lighting systems. “We’ll be bringing in older performers like Mel Tillis and Hank Jr., plus lots of new talent and even local up and coming entertainers,” says Montgomery, also noting Montgomery-Gentry will host events from time to time. “Who knows, we might even be able to help somebody from around here get a deal with a record company.” So why does a person who appears to have his plate full with a successful music career want to get involved in running a restaurant some 20 minutes from his farm? “It’s all about giving back to the community,” he says. “Plus, I just like staying busy because that’s how I grew up. “Our family (which includes country star brother John Michael of Jessamine County and a sister who resides in Burgin) was raised in houses that didn’t have living room furniture … we just had musical equip-

ment. We were always on the move. Mom was the drummer in a family band, Dad played guitar, and the bartenders were our babysitters.” Besides his wife and children, Montgomery points to three other loves in his life that make his enterprise worth pursuing. “I love being around people, love music, and do I ever love to eat, so having a great restaurant just makes good sense to me,” he said. “I can’t say enough about our friends who support us and our love for Kentucky because it is truly God’s country. I’m so crazy about my home, every time we come back across that state line, I just want to get off the bus and kiss the ground. “I am one lucky man, and this is just my way of giving something back for all the blessings I’ve had.” Columnist Don White has served as editor at several Kentucky newspapers. His Kentucky Traveler features are published throughout the state. Contact him at www.


Kentucky-born country music star Eddie Montgomery’s newest endeavor is opening a steakhouse — complete with a concert stage — near Harrodsburg, Ky.

Beshear designates September ‘Kentucky Bourbon Heritage Month’ Submitted by the Office of the Governor

FRANKFORT — Gov. Steve Beshear recognized the growing state and international impact of Kentucky’s signature bourbon industry by proclaiming September “Bourbon Heritage Month” in the Bluegrass last week. “Kentucky bourbon has become not only an American icon, but a leading international symbol of our proud heritage and craftsmanship,” Beshear said. “It has benefitted generations of Kentuckians, and its increasing appeal will mean even

larger rewards for the Commonwealth. “We’re proud that Kentucky is the birthplace of bourbon. It’s an honor to declare September ‘Bourbon Heritage Month’ in recognition of bourbon’s significant economic, agricultural and tourism impact in Kentucky and beyond.” Kentucky is home to historic distillers and international companies that together produce and market more than 95 percent of the world’s bourbon: BrownForman, Buffalo Trace, Constellation Spirits, Diageo North America, Four Roses,

Heaven Hill, Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, Wild Turkey and Woodford Reserve. Bourbon production has more than doubled since 1999, the year the Kentucky Bourbon Trail was formed, said Eric Gregory, President of the Kentucky Distillers’ Association. New production last year was 937,865 barrels, compared to 455,078 in 1999. Distilled spirits have a tremendous impact on Kentucky’s economy, Gregory said, including more than $3 billion in gross state product, more than 3,000 high-paying job, and nearly $115 million

Edible Heirlooms: Thanksgiving Bake


Kentucky’s rich bourbon history spurred the initiation of “Kentucky Bourbon Heritage Month.” in state and local taxes. In addition, the Kentucky Bourbon Trail has become one of the state’s most fa-

mous and fastest growing tourist attractions, Gregory said, with travelers from all 50 states and 25 countries

visiting the landmark distilleries. The Kentucky Bourbon Festival, held the third week in September each year, has grown to more than 55,000 visitors from 40 states and 14 countries, said Milt Spalding, the festival’s executive director. “Bourbon is America’s only native spirit, and it’s uniquely Kentucky,” Gregory said. “We appreciate the support of Governor Beshear and his administration in promoting Kentucky’s signature bourbon industry and celebrating its rich history and spirited future.”

Watch that child! Please go over these important rules with your child.

Getting on the school bus

• When waiting for the bus, stay away from traffic. • Do not stray into streets, alleys or private property. • Line up away from the street as the bus approaches. • Wait until the bus has stopped & the door opens before stepping onto the roadway. • Use the hand rail when stepping onto the bus.

Getting off the school bus By Jorena D. Faulkner Fall is by far my favorite season of the year. It is so for many reasons, from the multicolored layers of leaves piled up in the yard ready to play in, carved pumpkins and mums, to the crisp clean air, early evenings and the much anticipated Thanksgiving Day celebration. Thanksgiving dinner always brings back the best memories of childhood holidays with my family. Waking up early in the morning to the smell of “Tom Turkey” roasting in the oven, mashed potatoes, green beans, homemade biscuits and pumpkin pie graced our table no later than 2 p.m. each Thanksgiving. In those days, it was a special occasion to enjoy such a feast, but times have changed, allowing us to experience the goodness of the holidays throughout the year. One dish I occasionally make encompasses the core components of a delicious Thanksgiving Day dinner into one easy to assemble recipe. “Thanksgiving Bake” incorporates traditional stuffing, turkey breast cutlet and cranberry sauce, along with a variant of side dishes, to bring the taste of the holidays to your dinner table without all of the prep work and labor of the actual holiday. Thanksgiving Bake 48 ounces Swanson Chicken Broth (or you may use a homemade stock) 1 1/2 pound loaf of white bread, toasted 5 large stalks of celery 1 large yellow onion 1 tablespoon ground sage 1 tablespoon salt 1 tablespoon black pepper 2 eggs 1 to 2 pounds of lean turkey breast cutlets 1 can of whole berry cranberry sauce, chilled 1 1/4 sticks of butter Fresh sage Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place cranberry sauce into the refrigerator to chill.

Toast 1 1/2 loaf of white bread and place into a large bowl. Pinch toasted bread into uneven pieces and set aside. Roughly chop five large celery stalks and one large yellow onion. In a large stockpot, place 48 ounces of Swanson Chicken Broth, one stick of butter, celery, onion, one tablespoon of ground sage, one tablespoon of salt, and one tablespoon of black pepper. Place on medium high heat and allow to boil until celery and onion are soft. Once stock is ready, ladle over pinched bread pieces until thoroughly moistened. Note: You may not use all of the stock. The consistency should have a soft texture. Allow stuffing mix to slightly cool. In a cup, beat two eggs until smooth and drizzle over stuffing mixture. Quickly incorporate eggs into stuffing. Once stuffing is complete, spoon entire mixture into a 9 x 13 baking dish and smooth over. Set aside. In a frying pan on medium high, place 1/4 stick of butter, a pinch of salt and black pepper, and two to three fresh sage leaves. Allow to sauté. Once butter is melted, place one to two pounds of lean turkey breast cutlets into the pan and lightly brown. Note: This step is taken to season and seal in the juices of the turkey breast cutlets. Once turkey breast cutlets are browned evenly on both sides, remove from frying pan and evenly arrange on top of the stuffing mixture, pressing turkey breast cutlets down slightly. Cover top of baking dish with tin foil and bake on 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes to crisp up the top of the dish. Remove from oven and let cool approximately 10 minutes. Cut into servings and top with a spoon of chilled whole cranberry sauce and a few sprigs of fresh sage. Serve with green beans, mashed potatoes or your favorite veggie and rolls for a delicious Thanksgiving dinner all year long. To submit your own recipe, e-mail jorena@

• If you have to cross the street in front of the bus, walk at least 10 feet ahead of the bus along the side of the road until you can turn around and see the driver. • Make sure that the driver can see you. • Wait for a signal from the driver before beginning to cross. • When the driver signals, walk across the road, keeping an eye out for sudden traffic changes. • Do not cross the center line of the road until the driver has signaled that it is safe for you to begin walking. • Stay away from the wheels of the bus at all times.



Crossing the Street • Always stop at the curb or the edge of the road & look left, then right, & then left again before crossing. Continue looking until you cross the street.

With kids going back to school make sure you WATCH THAT CHILD!
