6,000 acres in, around county sell for $10.2 mil

11TH MONTH

By Laura Saylor editor@thenewsstandard.com

11th day

BRANDENBURG — The Farm Bureau Community Building at the Meade County Fairgrounds was standing room only Friday morning, as hundreds were present to witness the auctioning of 6,000 acres of land — a hefty portion of which was located in Meade County. Kimball International, a furniture and industrial electronics manufacturer headquartered out of Jasper, Ind., sold the land through Woltz and Schrader Auctions. A total of 27,212 acres was up for sale by Kimball: 9,400 acres were auctioned off on Nov. 6 in southern Indiana, 5,993 acres were sold in Brandenburg on Nov. 7, and 11,729 acres were auctioned off near Sturgis, Ky., on Nov. 8. The Sturgis area sale included land known as the “Game Trails” hunting property, which has been featured on numerous outdoor programs because of its worldclass deer hunting. Friday’s auction began at 10 a.m. and

‘Helmets to Hardhats’ opens doors for vets New program makes vets prerequisites for construction trade careers By Laura Saylor editor@thenewsstandard.com

As of Monday morning, the Meade County jail was on par, housing 96 state inmates. Seelye said after the early release program began, the jail dropped to an average of 70 inmates, though the numbers are back up to where they should be. “Wherever (state inmates) are available, we’re going to

MULDRAUGH — Kentucky may soon be on board with a new program that allows veterans to be prerequisites for stable careers in construction trade unions. Helmets to Hardhats, an up-and-coming national program was the topic of discussion during a meeting of the Kentucky Interim Joint Committee on Seniors, Veterans, Military Affairs, and Public Protection held at Lusk Mechanical last Thursday. Several dozen state senators and representatives, including State Rep. Jeff Greer (D-Brandenburg) and Sen. Carroll Gibson (R-District 5), attended the meeting, and welcomed a presentation by spokesmen of Helmets to Hardhats. Helmets to Hardhats is funded federally by the Department of Defense. It trains military men and women through a five-year apprenticeship that entails onthe-job training and classroom instruction. The program was established in 2003 and is now firmly in place in several states throughout the country, such as Oklahoma, Nebraska and New Hampshire.

Early release program isn’t hurting local jail, yet IDA appointment is still ruffling feathers at Fiscal Court By Laura Saylor editor@thenewsstandard.com

Meade County jailor Troy Seelye said an early release program that had been issued by the state government months

ago isn’t cutting into the jail’s budget, though he’s taking state prisoners anywhere he can get them. The November Fiscal Court meeting was held Monday evening at the courthouse instead of Tuesday, due to the Veterans Day holiday. During the meeting, Seelye said the jail typically budgets $1 million in state funds that come from housing

state inmates, though an early release program has been in effect as a way for the state to help alleviate its several million dollar debt. The state pays county jails who house state inmates on a per inmate, per diem basis. “The early release helps the state deficit but it takes away from county’s revenues,” Seelye said.

Holiday season already? Bah humbug

At the rate the holiday season is expanding, Christmas in July might actually become a national holiday. Not so long ago, it felt like Thanksgiving weekend was the kickoff of holiday shopping. Now, right after the final trick-or-treater knocks on your door, businesses immediately “deck their isles” with boughs of holly (and other Christmas paraphernalia) for customers to buy. With the financial crises and greedy bankers glaring down at America like the misanthropic Ebenezer Scrooge locked up in his mansion, families more than ever will feel the crunch on their holiday budget. Suggestions and tips have been given by holiday shopping experts to shop early and buy in spurts. But buyers beware. This may lead to even more spending. Chipping away at presents one by one may seem like a good idea, but you could quickly find yourself on a slippery slope of too many gifts to give while no money to save. So whatever shopping strategy you have, keep tally of what you’re spending. This is the time, more than ever to stay on budget. But all is not bleak in the holiday world, maybe this can spark true holiday cheer. Instead of worrying about presents Santa Claus is going to bring, maybe it’s time to worry about things that truly affect the people around us. Instead of spending hours in lines at malls and department stores, spend time with the ones close to you. Because, of course, the greatest present of all is the presences of your loved ones.

Barriers to opening a small business Veterans Post Freddy Groves The General Accountability Office recently reported to the House and Senate Committees on Small Business on the status of The Military Reservist and Veterans Small Business Reauthorization and Opportunity Act of 2008. The Act, in a nutshell, was an update and expansion of a similar one in 1999. Its original purpose was to bring federal agencies together under one umbrella to aid service-disabled veterans who wish to open small businesses. Years ago, all the pertinent agencies entered into Memos of Understanding (MOUs), which outlined exactly how each agency would coordinate with the others to bring about the desired end results. For example, the Department of Veterans Affairs, Small Business Administration (SBA) and Association for Small Business Development Centers signed an MOU to establish a clearinghouse for information on assistance programs on the federal, state and local levels. The GAO report concluded that: •Federally mandated

objectives were not being met, and lack of coordination adds to the problems veterans face in wading through the federal programs. •There have been delays in setting up an interagency task force to bring all the programs together. For example, it was required that the task force be set up within 90 days of Feb. 14, 2008, with the SBA in charge. As of October, it had not, and the SBA didn’t know when it would be. •Established MOUs were gutted. The SBA said they “institutionalized” their MOUs, whatever that means. The VA’s subsequent MOUs were signed, but not by the SBA. •The information clearinghouse, which was to have information for service-disabled veterans all in one place, was never established. At this point, servicedisabled veterans wanting to start a business are still being sent to multiple programs and agencies, and no one agency has all the information available from all the programs.

options. However, the governor offers no suggestions for meaningful reform of the state workers’ pension system. So far, Kentucky’s “taxislature” has avoided tough, cost-saving choices, including addressing elements of the pension system that line their pockets. Why should taxpayers have to pay for Cadillac-like pension benefits for state workers — including for legislators — when a Fordlike plan would do? Speaking of automakers, on the same day recently that Beshear offered his latest and increasingly tiresome, “fire-in-the-crowdedtheater” message about a $294-million “shortfall,” came the announcement that state officials had approved $180 million in tax breaks for Ford Motor Co. — nearly two-thirds of the alleged shortfall. How about we hang such government-extracted bailouts for failing auto companies in effigy? Then, we can tie the “as-a-last-resort” promise to the same dummy because it no longer means anything. Likewise, we’ve seen no action taken to eliminate antiquated labor practices such as prevailing-wage requirements on public projects, which wastes $130

million in state tax revenues every year. Even as a public-school graduate, I can correctly figure that $130 million in savings from eliminating the union-biased, economybashing prevailing-wage policy, and the $180 million in tax breaks for Ford. By golly, that adds up to $310 million. Not only could the state clear the alleged deficit, it could net $16 million — just by eliminating prevailing wage on public projects and taxpayer-funded handouts for just a single private company. How can this administration possibly justify a tax increase at any time until it deals with these issues? Promising to raise our taxes only as “a last resort?” If Beshear succeeds in pressuring weak Kentucky lawmakers into going along with his fiscal Three-Card Monte, we might as well also hang in effigy all those “No New Taxes” pledges signed by many of those same politicians in recent years.

A brief reflection on the miracle of ‘plenty’ To what do we owe our 20-pound Butterball turkeys, our high-definition TVs, our spacious and warm homes this Thanksgiving? Something that won’t be high on anyone’s list of things to be grateful for, but undergirds our way of life — a centuries-old economic revolution that changed the very terms of human existence. In his eye-opening book, “A Farewell to Alms: A Brief Economic History of the World,” Gregory Clark produces a chart tracking income per person throughout history. By Clark’s account, it is essentially flat from 1000 B.C. to A.D. 1800, reflecting the crushing burden of providing for our material wants in an environment of economic stasis. Then, income per person explodes upward around 1800, coinciding with the Industrial Revolution that first arrived in England. Without it, most of us would still be living poor, nasty, brutish and short lives. How poor? “The average person

in the world of 1800 was no better off than the average person of 100,000 B.C.,” Clark argues. “Life expectancy was no higher in 1800 than for huntergatherers: 30 to 35 years. Stature, a measure both of the quality of diet and of children’s exposure to disease, was higher in the Stone Age than in 1800. And while foragers satisfy their material wants with small amounts of work, the modest comforts of the English in 1800 were purchased only through a life of unrelenting drudgery.” Throughout most of history, Clark argues, humankind was caught in a “Malthusian trap:” Small economic advances were outpaced by resulting population growth that made it impossible for living standards to increase. The massive productivity gains of the Industrial Revolution — driven essentially by expanding knowledge — broke the trap and created modern life as we know it. “The richest modern economies are now 10 to

Chief urges CO caution after Kroger gas leak POLLOCK’S APPLIANCE Selling full line of Whirlpool and Frigidaire appliances!

Staff Report The News Standard A gas leak at Kroger that occurred last Friday morning led to emergency responders evaluating 10 people, two of which were transported for further treatment. Meade County Fire Chief Larry Naser said a response unit made an initial run after the grocery store’s pilot

Helmets From page A1 “It’s a fantastic program, because (veterans) are such great workers,” said Jack Canady, a Louisville business owner who recently hired two veterans through the new program. “They show up on time, they’re labor intensive, they’re of good character, and they’re solid citizens.” Veterans are accepted into the program after meeting requirements, such as having an honorable discharge; having a high school diploma or equivalent; passing a drug test; conducting an interview; and being physically fit enough to work. Qualified veterans must be at least 18 years old, though there is no age cap. For veterans unable to perform physically demanding jobs, administrative careers in the construction field are also available, said Darrell L. Roberts, executive director of the nonprofit organization. “There are 5,800 veterans seeking employment in the I-65 Corridor,” he said. “With Fort Knox and Fort Campbell being the large military installations that they are … we thought it was important to bring (Helmets to Hardhats) to Kentucky.” Veterans receive almost $1,000 per month as they attend the apprenticeship program to help offset living costs. Once the apprenticeship is complete, each person receives an Associ-

Acres From page A1 concluded after 1 p.m. The 5,993 acres for sale were divided into 34 tracts ranging in size from 20 acres to 1,000 acres. More than 3,000 acres were located in Meade County (most of which was near the Lapland and Wolf Creek roads area), with other tracts located in Breckinridge, Butler, Crawford, Harrison and Perry counties. Fourteen different bidders purchased the land for a total of $10.243 million, though the purchasers’ names were not disclosed

light went out inside one of its large stoves in the deli area. Responders shut off the gas, though were called back to the store 30 minutes later after several employees complained of light-headedness. LG&E also reported to the store. “It wasn’t due to any negligence, it just happens ... this time of year,” Naser said.

He urged everyone to take the time to have furnaces and other gasemitting appliances safety checked, and to ensure carbon monoxide detectors work properly now that people are sealing their homes for the cold winter months. Kroger released the following statement: “The Kroger in Brandenburg did experience a natural

gas leak that was caused when a hot water heater pilot light malfunctioned. The pilot light has been repaired and we do not expect any further issues. A number of Kroger associates became nauseous or experienced shortness of breath. They received prompt medical attention and we are pleased to report they are all back at work doing well.”

Fort Knox commander receives second star Submitted by the Fort Knox Office of Public Affairs FORT KNOX — President George W. Bush has bestowed the responsibility for Fort Knox Commander Brig. Gen. Don Campbell Jr. to wear the rank of major general. Brig. Gen. Campbell was promoted at 11 a.m. Nov. 10 at the Patton Museum, and Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Peter Chiarelli presided over the ceremony. Brig. Gen. Campbell was commissioned as an Armor officer in May 1978 and has served as a general since November 2005. He took command of Fort Knox and the Armor Center in January 2008. His responsibilities include overseeing and supporting operations for Fort Knox and the entire Armor force. Brigadier General Campbell is a graduate of the Armor Officer Basic Course, Infantry Officer Advanced Course, U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, and the U.S. Army War College. He holds a Master’s Degree in Administration from Central Michigan University. His decorations include the Legion of Merit with two oak leaf clusters, Bronze Star Medal with “V” device, Bronze Star Medal with oak leaf clusate’s Degree and has nearjourneyman experience, Roberts said. “They made a sacrifice for this country … and too many come back without a job to go to,” Roberts said. “But we can offer more than that. We can offer a them a career.” Canady said he is eager to hire more qualified veterans through the program, saying military men and by Woltz and Schrader. “For the second day in a row, the larger bidders were in there pitching, but the smaller buyers once again asserted themselves and purchased much of the land,” said Rex Schrader, president of Woltz and Schrader Auctions. “We’re seeing bidders who are seeking to purchase the land for its investment value, which is considerable because of Kimball’s careful management of the extensive hardwood timber stands. “But we are also seeing many bidders — and buyers — seeking land for their own personal use for recreation and personal enjoyment as well as its invest-

Christmas bazaar kicks off holiday season By Chelsey Garris editor@thenewsstandard.com

The Meade County Extension Office Homemakers Club hosted its annual Christmas Bazaar last Saturday at the Meade County High School. More than 500 people attended the festive event. The Homemakers have hosted the Christmas Bazaar for more than 40 years, and each year brings a larger turnout. “This really kicks off everybody’s holiday shopping season in Meade County,” said Jennifer Bridge, the county’s Family Consumer Science Extension Agent. The Homemakers are divided into seven groups throughout Meade County: Garrett, Doe Valley, Town and Country, Night Owls, Midway, Bluegrass, and Friendship. The Christmas Bazaar originated with only these seven groups sponsoring booths, but within the last six years the Homemakers

This year, several different organizations were on-hand selling an eclectic array of products such as picture frames, Christmas ornaments, baked goods, cookbooks, cutlery, and more. “Many people will come out to buy their baked goods for the Thanksgiving holiday,” Bridge said.

One stipulation is required for vendors participating in the bazaar. “We require that everything be handmade,” said Pat Ditto, president of the Meade County Extension Homemakers. New this year were afghans depicting images of Meade County, such as pictures from the fair, the Doe Valley Golf Course,

Buttermilk Falls and Doe Run Inn. The afghans are 52 x 69 inches and are 100 percent cotton. For more information on how to order a Meade County afghan, call the Extension Office at 270-422-4958. The Homemakers meet at least twice a year to plan for the bazaar, though they work all year long preparing crafts and other items to be sold there. Members from all seven divisions of the club worked diligently to set-up their booths Friday night and Saturday morning prior to the beginning of the bazaar. Along with the various booths that filled the high school cafeteria, the bazaar offered drinks, snacks and door prizes, and Santa Claus was on-hand, taking early Christmas wishes from children in attendance. “It’s great that the community has (Christmas Bazaar),” Bridge said. “It’s a great way for local businesses to promote their business, too.”

Save big by preparing your home for old man winter Submitted by the BBB

With a tough economy looming like the Grinch over this year’s holiday season, many people are looking for ways to ensure their homes are ready for the cold winter months in an effort to save money through energy efficiency. The Better Business Bureau is offering a checklist for homeowners to safely prepare their homes for winter and perhaps save a few dollars in the process. According to the Energy Information Administration, home heating costs this winter are expected to rise by 23 percent for homeowners who rely on heating oil, 18 percent for homes relying on natural gas and 10-11 percent for homes heated by propane or electricity. Luckily, homeowners can fend off some of the rising energy costs by winterizing their home before the harshest weather takes hold. Winterizing a home makes good economic sense because a small up-

front investment can pay dividends for months by increasing the energy efficiency of a house and reducing overall heating costs. Following is a BBB home winterizing checklist for consumers to consult when preparing for the cold months ahead: Furnace Furnaces older than 15 years might be due for a replacement. For younger furnaces, the BBB recommends making sure the furnace filter is clean, the thermostat is working properly and the pilot light is functioning. Homeowners can also hire an inspector to do the job and make sure the furnace is in safe working order. Heating ducts Ducts should be cleaned once every two years. Homeowners should also consider adding insulation to any exposed duct work. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a home with central heating can lose up to 60 percent of its heated air before that

Caulking and weather stripping The average American home has air leaks that amount to a nine-squarefoot hole in the wall, according to the EarthWorks Group. To prevent leaks, homeowners should inspect the caulking around windows and doors and check for cracking and peeling. In addition, the BBB recommends ensuring that doors and windows shut tightly and no cold air is coming in due to worn

down weather stripping.

Seasonal equipment Homeowners won’t need their spring and summer equipment for a few months, so the BBB recommends draining the water from garden hoses and air conditioner pipes and the gasoline from the lawnmower and other garden tools. It’s also time to pull out the snow shovels and plows and ensure they are in good repair.

Emergency kit When a winter storm strikes, an emergency kit should have all essential materials in one handy place. An emergency kit should include flashlights, candles and matches, a first aid kit, bottled water, non-perishable food and a battery-powered radio. BBB recommends creating the same emergency kit for the car as well, including a couple blankets.

PINS festival, silent auction to feature airline tickets Submitted by Pat Bowen PINS PR Chairman Fingers are flying and holiday trimmings are being made for the Pets In Need Society (PINS) Wreath Festival to be held Nov. 30 through Dec. 5 at the Meade County Courthouse. Wreaths, swags, small trees, tabletop decorations,

Jail From page A1 get them because it’s such a budgetary concern,” he said. He said the jail was currently operating within budget. Magistrate Herbie Chism brought into question an appointment made to the Meade County/Brandenburg Industrial Development Authority. Carl Austin was appointed to the committee by Meade County Judge/Executive Harry Craycroft during the August Fiscal Court meeting, though Chism has contested the appointment since then, saying Craycroft needed the court’s approval before the appointment is final. Last month, Craycroft presented Chism with a copy of

Klan From page A1 — asked potential jurors if they would be able to openly and unbiasedly devote their full attention to the trial, disregardful of any preconceived notions or learned information presented on TV, newspaper or radio media. McMurry, who is representing Gruver along with attorney Morris Dees, cofounder of the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Ala., and Brandenburg City Attorney Steve Crebessa, said he is handling this trial pro bono. Defendants Ron Edwards, Imperial Wizard of the IKA — an international white supremacy group headquartered in Dawson’s Spring, Ky. — and Jarred Hensley — a former IKA member — chose to be un-represented by an attorney. McMurry said Gruver — who was present at the trial — is seeking $12,000 in medical expenses for injuries that occurred after his attack; $137,288 for future medical expenses (including antidepressant medications and treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder); $852,000 in lost wages claims; up to $5 million in pain and suffering damages; and possibly tens of millions of dollars in pu-

and other holiday items are being fabricated for donations from the community. More animals are being adopted from the Meade County Animal Shelter and PINS pays 100 percent of the spay/neuter for these animals, so the PINS volunteers must come up with some great offerings to tempt everyone and raise more money.

In addition, this year Southwest Airlines has donated two round-trip tickets to anywhere Southwest flies, which will be the feature item of a silent auction that will last throughout the Wreath Festival week. There will also be a Dell computer with Windows XP available in the silent auction. Those interested in these items should add

a written letter from Attorney General Jim Ringo saying the appointment was legal. On Monday night, Chism stated that the letter did not address the IDA appointment. Craycroft said the matter was “a done deal until proven otherwise.” Mark Gossett, Meade County Recycle Center Director, said the center lost a truck due to engine malfunction last Monday. He was told it would cost roughly $10,000 to replace the diesel engine, which he thought the vehicle wasn’t worth. The county may consider leasing a truck through a special program after hearing a presentation by Jim Dotson of Worldwide Equipment in Prestonburg, Ky. Gossett said the center’s new shredder is working well, and reminded the public it is a free service. He also said a new recycling pro-

gram will begin next week, through which schools will bring 20 boxes of white paper per day to the center to be recycled. After much deliberation, magistrates voted to “spot zone” a piece of property along KY 1238 near Garrett from B-2 to R-1, though planning and zoning denied the request because it conflicted with the county’s comprehensive plan, due to interference for the planned Highway 313 project. Magistrates Tom Goddard, Steve Wardrip, Randall Hardesty and Craycroft voted to in favor of the “spot zone,” while Mark Hubbard, Tony Staples and Chism voted against it, saying “spot zoning” is a discouraged practice, and the entire strip of land in that area should be rezoned to residential, instead of just the .987 acre parcel in question.

nitive damages. A previous lawsuit regarding the beating occurred in 2007 that resulted in Hensley and another attacker, IKA member Andrew Watkins, serving two years in a state penitentiary. Gruver’s assault occurred after midnight on July 30, 2006. Gruver, who is of Panamanian descent and was 16 years old at the time, was at a concession area of the Meade County Fairgrounds when Hensley and Watkins allegedly threw whiskey on his face, spit on him, called him racially-demeaning names, and then beat him. Brandenburg Police Officer Scotty Singleton testified to seeing Watkins and Hensley kicking Gruver, who was lying on the ground. Singleton arrested Watkins, and another officer arrested Hensley. Former Meade County Sherriff and former County Attorney Detective Joe Greer testified that Hensley was wearing steel-toed boots during the attack — which were confiscated at the Meade County jail — and that Gruver was in poor physical and emotional condition as he gave an official statement several days after the attack. He said Gruver’s mouth was wired shut as he tried to issue the statement. Hensley — who is denying being part of the assault

— said he and Watkins saw Gruver hitting a woman, and they intervened. Hensley said he never got closer than six feet to Gruver. Edwards is denying accusations that he told members of the IKA to go to the fair on a recruiting mission. He said the IKA is founded on its freedoms of speech and religion, and it is a law-abiding organization that doesn’t promote violence. “(The IKA) is no more dangerous than a rabbit or a dog,” Edwards said. “You put your hand in there, you might get bit.” He said members of the IKA that commit illegal acts are kicked out of the organization. Opening statements began around 1 p.m. Wednesday. The plaintiff called several witnesses to the stand Wednesday afternoon, including Edwards, who testified for more than an hour. The trial continued Thursday, and was scheduled to end Friday, though it may continue longer if needed. Security is expected to continue to be stringent for anyone entering the court room. Metal detectors are being used by security officers and several Kentucky State Police Officers were on site all day Wednesday. Meade County Circuit Court Judge Bruce Butler is presiding over the trial.

Tell Second, celebrate two about how badly you and birthdays with equal gusto your wife wanted a baby to each year: the anniversary hold even though it looked

like you wouldn’t get to raise another boy or girl. Then describe how the news came that “you had arrived,” and how the whole family celebrated and cheered. Let your child know your delight when you first saw him lying in a crib, and how cute he looked in his blue blanket, etc. Tell him that his adoption was one of the happiest days of your life, and how you raced to the telephone to call all your friends and family members to share the fantastic news. (Again, I’m assuming that these details are true.) This is the point: The child’s interpretation of the adoptive event is almost totally dependent on the manner in which it is conveyed during the early years. Most certainly, one does not want

to approach the subject sadly, admitting reluctantly that a dark and troublesome secret must now be confessed. Fourth, when the foundation has been laid and the issue is defused, then forget it. Don’t constantly remind the child of his uniqueness to the point of foolishness. Mention the matter when it is appropriate, but don’t reveal anxiety or tension by constantly throwing adoption in the child’s face. Youngsters are amazingly perceptive at “reading” these thinly disguised attitudes. I believe it is possible, by following these common sense suggestions, to raise an adopted child without psychological trauma or personal insult. QUESTION:

My

four-

teen-year-old boy is flighty, mischievous, irresponsible and lazy. If I don’t watch him very carefully, he’ll find ways to get into trouble -- not really bad stuff, just stupid kid behavior. But I’m afraid I could lose him right at this time. What can I do to keep him on track? Dr. Dobson: It is most important to keep your rambunctious youngster moving. If you let him get bored, he’ll find destructive ways to use unstructured and unsupervised time. My advice is to get him involved in the very best church youth program you can find. If your local congregation only has four bored kids in its junior high department and seven sleepy high schoolers, I would consider changing churches. I know doing that could

be disruptive to the rest of your family, but it might help save your volatile kid. This can be done not only through church activities but also by involvement with athletics, music, horses or other animals, and part-time jobs. The hope is that one of those options will grab his fancy at some point, and his boundless energy will be channeled into something constructive. Until then, you must keep that energetic kid’s scrawny legs churning. Dr. Dobson is founder and chairman of the board of the nonprofit organization Focus on the Family, Colorado Springs, CO 80995(www. family.org). Questions and answers are excerpted from “Solid Answers” and “Bringing Up Boys,” both published by Tyndale House.

God knows who to send in our lives One day a woman was at work when she received a phone call that her daughter was very sick with a fever. She left her workplace and stopped by the pharmacy to get some medication for her daughter. Upon returning to her car, she found that she had locked her keys in the car. Not knowing what else to do, she called her house and asked her daughter’s babysitter for advice. The girl said, “Perhaps you could find a coat hanger and use it to open the door.” The woman looked around and eventually did find a rusty old coat hanger on the ground, possibly thrown

The Women’s Imaging Center at Hardin Memorial Hospital performs digital mammography so visually superior to x-ray images that we’re able to detect the presence of cancer earlier. What’s more, we’re digitizing film from previous mammograms — this digital-to-digital comparison of breast images from exam-to-exam enables us to more precisely pinpoint changes in breast tissue. In addition to the life-saving advantages of improved imaging, we also offer a more comfortable exam with the use of soft pads. Every staff member, technologist and radiologist is committed to treating you with the gentleness, respect and sensitivity you deserve. Clearly, the difference digital mammography makes is easy to see — please schedule your exam today: 270.706.5444.

Cuttin’ loose with friendly atmosphere for over 31 years By Crystal Benham crystal@thenewsstandard.com

Thirty-one years ago, a young Iva Wimp—only 21 years old—opened a hair salon that would remain successful for more than three decades. “Iva’s Cuttin’ Loose,” located on Dixie Hwy. in Muldraugh, first opened its doors in 1977. It was previously known as “Iva’s Town Salon” until 1994 when she decided to move her business one door up in the same building. As a young girl growing up in Muldraugh, Wimp knew cutting hair and working closely with customers were aspects of a career she would strive to pursue. “I knew I wanted to cut hair when I was in high school,” she said. “So, when I (graduated) I went to hair and design school. I used to like playing with my mother’s and my sister’s hair, and I really wanted a job working with people.” While attending Radcliff Beauty College as a fulltime student, she worked as a server and a hotel housekeeper to pay for her classes. After graduating cosmetology school, Wimp worked for hairdresser Willodene Coghill in the same

office she would later own. Coghill was a classmate of Wimp’s at beauty school. “She and I went to beauty school together, and she got out before I did and

started the shop,” Wimp said. “She used to pick me up from home every day and take me to beauty school with her … I thought that was pretty cool.”

Squeeze dollars out of home budget By David Uffington Dollars and Sense Stretching every dollar in the family budget isn’t enough now. Finding spare change, a few cents at a time, among the household expenses has become a necessity for many folks. Here are some ways to find that spare change in the kitchen: •Look for recipes that allow you to add less-costly ingredients to stretch meals further. Oatmeal flakes, for example, can be added to hamburger to make a meatloaf. Use leftovers or rice to stretch soups into an additional serving or two. •If the menus at home have become a bit slim, reverse the day — give the kids grilled cheese sandwiches for breakfast and eggs for dinner. •Check grocery store sales flyers, and use coupons when planning your weekly menus. Don’t let the coupons lead to impulse buying, however.

•When you find a good food bargain, make meals ahead and freeze them. Having a freezer full of meals will help avoid the temptation to eat out or buy convenience food when you’re short on time or energy. Be sure to package the meals well and label with the contents and date prepared. •Use up leftovers. Search for Internet food sites that let you list the ingredients you have on hand and then provide you with a recipe using those ingredients. Learn how to freeze vegetables or fruit before they go bad, or make casseroles, or bake bread. •Learn new ways to stretch common ingredients or make substitutions to use what you do have. Not all of your savings are to be found in the kitchen. Check the Internet for ways to create products you need out of inexpensive ingredients. Drain cleaner, laundry soap, oven cleaner, hand soap, window cleaner,

bath and shower products, fabric softener and bath and tile cleaners can all be made with a few simple ingredients. Many of them consist of varying amounts of vinegar, baking powder and an inexpensive dishwashing detergent. Give up as many paper products as you can. Paper towels, diapers and dinner napkins all have cloth alternatives. Before you buy at all, sign up on sites such as Free Cycle [freecycle.net] to give away what you no longer need and ask for what you do. Check the Free section on Craig’s List your area [craigslist.org] for items being given away.

Wimp worked for Coghill for about a year, before Coghill decided cutting hair wasn’t her cup of tea. She then sold the business to Wimp. For more than 30 years now, Wimp has operated the successful hair salon as the sole proprietor and single employee. With customers from a broad surrounding area — Louisville, Owensboro, Meade County, and Radcliff — Wimp has truly created a remarkable reputation for herself, according to Elfrieda Mount, 89, of Muldraugh. “(Iva’s Cuttin’ Loose) has a good atmosphere,” said Mount, who has been a “regular” of Wimp’s since the ‘80s. “When you come in to get your hair cut, you can sit down and tell her your life’s story and she remembers it. It’s like going to your neighbor’s (house).” Wimp prides herself on being a good listener who genuinely befriends her customers, and makes an effort to ensure everyone feels right at home as soon as they sit in the styling chair. “When I was in the hospital a while ago, I had open heart surgery and (Iva) came to the hospital to do my hair and didn’t

charge me a thing,” Mount said. “When I came home, she would come to my house and fix it there for me.” Wimp said she likes listening to customers’ stories though she feels some stylists view their customers as “just another head.” She said customers are amazed by how well she remembers them and their stories. Wimp is also an avid donor for Locks of Love — a nonprofit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children suffering from medical hair loss due to illness. For years, Wimp has grown her hair long just to cut inches and inches of it to donate to the charity. Wimp kept her hair long for most of her life, and the first time she cut it for Locks of Love, it was a little nerve-racking. “It was scary,” she said. “But after that, I just kept growing it and cutting it, growing it and cutting. “I’ve got one more foot (of hair) to grow and I will have donated (as much hair) as tall as I am … one more foot. I did my last donation at the end of May and my hair has already grown almost three inches. So, I figure, in about anoth-

er year-and-a-half I’ll have my foot grown and I’ll donate that foot and it’ll be 5 feet 2 inches of total donated hair.” Wimp said 5 feet 2 inches was the goal she set when she started donating her hair. She set this goal — as she once told one of her “regulars” — because when most women reach a certain age, long hair “just doesn’t look good on them.” “I figure I’m 52 years old now, and 5 feet 2 inches of hair is a good goal,” she said. Wimp hasn’t decided yet whether she’ll let her hair grow long again after donating the last foot. Her stylist, younger sister Debbie Anderson, lives in Santa Rosa Beach, Fla. and “that’s a long way to drive” for a hair cut. More than half of Wimp’s business comes from men, so she specializes in all types of hair: long, short, thin, thick, curly or straight. Iva’s Cuttin’ Loose is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to her last appointment of the day. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, contact Iva at 502-9422489.

AGRICULTURE ‘Step Up and Stand Out’: Meade County FFA wins big at Indy

The News Standard - A11

Friday, November 14, 2008

By Ashley Carter Meade County FFA Reporter

Blue jackets from everywhere in the U.S. gathered together in Indianapolis for the FFA’s national convention. The streets were cleaned and flags, banners, and signs were hung on every street, building, and corner — all welcoming the FFA. Some came for the contests, leadership development and friends they have made, but others came to receive awards they earned for all their great achievements over the years. This is exactly why our Meade County Chapter of the FFA went. Taking more than 45 active members of the Meade County FFA to Indy can be a tedious task, but it was all

SUBMITTED PHOTO

FFA students help out during the annual Pumpkin Patch held at the Meade County High school during Halloween. to celebrate our wonderful achievement as a chapter. Every year we have a theme for the year.

This year our theme was, “Step Up and Stand Out.” This is exactly what Meade County FFA has done: We

have stepped and now we are standing out as a National 3-Star Chapter. As the highest rating a chapter can receive, this award puts the Meade County FFA in the top 2 percent of chapters nationwide. Our president, Callie Hobbs, and vice president, Alex Richardson, proudly went on stage to accept this award. The Meade County FFA is stepping up and standing out in many other ways, and we are not going to stop. From serving candy to children at the “Pumpkin Patch” to teaching them the importance of Ag safety, we are helping others and building our chapter to be even stronger. Meade County FFA helps with Pumpkin Patch With candy corn, suckers,

pumpkins, and chocolate candy bars, Halloween has to be every kid’s favorite time of the year. There is something that makes it even better though, besides dressing up and being your favorite super hero: it’s the very famous “Pumpkin Patch,” of course. The event is held each year at the high school by a group of active members in both the FFA and FCLA. It’s not just fun for the little kids, though; each member that participates also gets to dress up in his or her favorite costume. Everyone works very hard to get their stations set up and their candy ready, all waiting to see all the different costumes that will come through. Each year an estimate of over 3,000 children come

through the “Pumpkin Patch.” The candy is put into big containers and is separated. From there, the members pass the candy out to all the children. In the end, we are all glad to say that we had a great time dressing-up and working together to make the kids happy. We will continue to help the FCLA with the “Pumpkin Patch” each year, not just for the opportunity to dress up but because we enjoy making children smile. This will not be the last of the Meade County FFA because we still have many prestigious events ahead of us. Our next stop will be Brandenburg Primary were we will teach kids the importance of Ag safety.

Seeds sown for center showcasing Kentucky agriculture

Virginia Flanagan isn’t one to count her chickens before they’re hatched. If she were, the executive director of the Kentucky Agriculture Heritage Center would be busy beyond imagination. Before she leaves Taylor County every morning, she checks on the nearly one million fowl being raised on her family farm. By the time she arrives at her office just north of Harrodsburg, Ky., a million seems like a drop in the bucket. Most of the 65-year-old ex-English teacher’s time is spent diagramming ways to come up with the many millions needed to get the heritage center off the ground. The center received a major boost this summer when Gov. Steve Beshear delivered a check for $11 million in Kentucky Agricultural Development Funds for the architectural design development, marketing, promotion, and construction of the facility. The grand showcase for the past, present, and future of Kentucky Agriculture will be built with state and private funding on 50 acres of the 7,200-acre Anderson Circle Farm owned by Mercer County farmer and businessman Ralph Anderson. A number of different locations were considered for the operation, but the decision to locate here was made in April 2006 when

Anderson offered to donate the property. Organizers were also swayed by the central location to all Kentuckians. Plans are for the center to open by 2010, but Flanagan is cautiously optimistic it will be ready even sooner. “It all depends on the fund-raising,â€? said the former director for the Kentucky History Center in Frankfort and Campbellsville University Technology Training Center. “We won’t start construction until we know we have enough money to finish it,â€? she promised. “We have a company doing a business plan for us, and once we nail down all our costs in the next month or two, we should know the scope of our activities and be able to do things like set admission fees,â€? she said. “We want something everyone can be proud of and a place where important work can be done ‌ a first class operation from the start.â€? Expected to attract thousands, not only from Kentucky but throughout the United States, the center will include a 300,000 square foot building showcasing technology and providing workspaces and resources, recreational activities and entertainment. The state’s agricultural history will be displayed through hands-on activities such as a walking farm tour, demonstrations, expo-

Operations for the new Kentucky Agriculture Heritage Center are currently housed in a building belonging to the McAfee Fire Dept. sitions and virtual agricultural experiences. One of the highlights will be a Kentucky Agriculture Hall of Fame recognizing Kentuckians for their contributions to the industry. Nominees will be sought from the public and installed “with much pomp and circumstance,� said the director. Flanagan expects lots of nominations due to the state’s being a leader in agriculture for so many years. “There are so many things of which people may not be aware, such as the fact notill farming was developed at UK,� she explained. Currently, oral histories are being gathered from across the state with the

goal of using them along with interactive exhibits and as part of occasional drama skits. “Some of these should also be of help in describing the many artifacts we will have on display,� she said. One display feature that could draw criticism is space devoted to the tobacco industry. “Some people have asked what we are going to do about tobacco. It will be front and center because it has been a big part of Kentucky agriculture history. We won’t be promoting it, but we won’t deny it either, because it’s a big part of what we have been and what we are in this state,� Flanagan said.

Kentucky-grown products will be served in a restaurant on the site and available for purchase in a gift shop. Another area will be set aside as a certified kitchen in which people may schedule time to make noncommercial jellies and jams for personal use or to place in competition at fairs and festivals. Georgia is the only other state currently supporting a similar operation, but it is lacking a unique feature planned here that could serve as a model for future facilities. Growing out of a desire to keep monthly bills at a minimum and protect the environment, architects

have come up with features that should make the facility 100 percent energy independent. Energy conservation is included in every aspect of the design, including incorporating a geothermal heat pump that will allow the earth to absorb and reject heat from the building. This feature alone is expected to reduce heating and cooling costs by 25 to 40 percent. Also stressed will be the use of natural ventilation, daylight harvesting, and electrochromatic glass. There will be no asphalt or concrete on the property, allowing water to be absorbed and directed to a basin from which it will be used throughout the farm. By using a combination of wind turbines and solar panels, the facility power will be generated from clean, non-depletable resources which are inflation proof and not subject to the factors of the market. Adding energy-saving features are more costly at the outset, but installation costs are recovered in seven to nine years, according to the experts. “If I had used the same methods we will employ here in my chicken houses, I would be saving a thousand dollars a month,� Flanagan said.

Italian-Americans often serve lasagna before their Thanksgiving turkey, and it got us thinking — what would happen if we cooked pumpkin, the most iconic Thanksgiving fruit, in lasagna? The result is a delicious blend of traditions. Made heartier with the addition of ricotta cheese, mushrooms and greens, this lasagna can be served as a sophisticated side dish or a substantial vegetarian entrÊe. Ingredients 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided 2 large onions, chopped 1 can (about 4 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained 3 cloves garlic, minced 1/4 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning 1 can (15 ounces) mixed greens, drained 1 can (15 ounces) 100% pumpkin 1 container (15 ounces) ricotta cheese, preferably whole milk 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg 1 cup Alfredo sauce 15 lasagna noodles (about 3/4 pound), cooked according to package directions Heat oven to 350°F. Heat 2 teaspoons of the

olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sautĂŠ until golden brown, 5 to 10 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and Italian seasoning, and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the greens and heat through; set aside. Mix pumpkin and ricotta cheese in a large mixing bowl.

Lady Waves cross country team is no joke By Ben Achtabowski sports@thenewsstandard.com Before every cross country meet, Meade County head coach Larry Garner tells his Lady Waves team a joke. The cornier the better, and the joke before last Saturday’s Class 3A Region 3 meet was no exception. In short, Garner’s joke was about a guy getting chased by a coffin, which eventually cornered him in a bathroom. The guy finally took cough syrup out of the medicine cabinet and poured it into the coffin — and the “coffin” stopped. “We started that three years ago,” Garner said about the team’s pre-race ritual. “They didn’t know I was going to do it. They were very tense all stand-

ing at the line, so I told them a joke. They were all standing there like I’m an idiot. This year, I said I wasn’t going to bother with it and they started screaming and yelling at me. So last night, I’m on the Internet trying to find a joke to tell them. I’ve run out of all my good jokes.” While the actual degree of hilarity is still under question, the Lady Waves cross country team is certainly no joke this year. With a set of lofty goals, the girls appeared disappointed with their runnerup performance and automatic bid into the state meet tomorrow at Lexington Horse Park.

Five individuals make state meet By Ben Achtabowski sports@thenewsstandard.com The Meade County Greenwave cross country team members call themselves wolves because during races they run as a pack. They also will be heading to the state track meet as a pack, though they only qualified for individual spots. “We have five guys that will stick together and run together even at the state meet,” said head coach Larry Garner. “We can’t score as a team, but we can always add up the numbers and see what we would have run as a team.” Last Saturday, Louisville Male — by a margin of 21 points — edged the Greenwave team out of a team seed in the state meet during the regional meet at River Road Country Club. Only the top four teams of the region qualify for the state meet. Male finished fourth, while Meade County placed fifth. “Twenty-one points short isn’t bad at all,” said junior Sean Breeds, who finished a team-high 11th place. “Before the race (people) saying (Male was) 78 points ahead of us.

State From page B1 had on the line. I have no regrets on what our team did today. We ran well and we ran strong. The outcome was what it was.” During the first mileand-a-half of the little over three-mile (5 km) race, the Greenwave team had the lead on Male. “We knew we were coming in as the underdogs,” Garner said. “We knew that most likely we weren’t going to beat them. But at the mile-and-a-half mark we were beating them. We had them beat. Our position was good, but Male pulled away at the end.” Even though the team missed out, five of seven runners qualified for state meet. The runners attribute their individual success to the team’s “pack-like tendencies.” “We started this new thing where we call ourselves wolves and we run as a pack,” said junior Joseph Humphrey, who qualified for the state meet with a 29th place finish. “We did that today and our top five guys were right there. We stayed together for the most part, of course we broke apart a little bit at the end, but we definitely had that pack mentality.” The majority of the pack finished in the top 30, including junior Chad Medley, 22nd; sophomore Tyler Blair, 23rd; Humphrey, 29th; and freshman Malichi Merski, 30th — all of which were within 10 places of each other. Meade County’s finish was unlike the conference meet it hosted two weeks ago. “In the conference meet we got away from that,” Garner said. “Our pack kind of fizzled and that’s why we didn’t run well that day — they know it and I know it. It’s their rallying cry now and they believe in it.” During the regional meet, the runners had near-perfect running conditions for the fairly flat course. The only thing working against them was a stiff breeze and a few bumps. “That wind was hurting,” Humphrey said. “That really made it tough to run. But the course is amazing; it’s a really nice course.” “I love this course. It’s a really quick course and all

Mileand-halfs have been our best tracks lately.’’ Now the best title race will go down tonight, so make sure to stock up the fridge prop your feet up and enjoy.

it has is those dips,” Breeds said about several ditches the runners had to leap over throughout the course. “All that does is throw off your pace. You just have to catch your stride back again.” “That was so weird,” Humphrey added about the ditches. “It throws you off so badly, because of those random dips and hills. They aren’t gradual at all. You have to step up and it throws you off. You can’t jump it; you can’t step up without it throwing you off.” All top five runners ran a personal best excluding Breeds, who ran a season best of 16:44. The team that ran away with the regional title was St. Xavier, which scored all seven runners in the top 20. Junior Jackson Carnes and junior Thomas Mann, both from St. X, finished under 16 minutes. The entire field of regional teams consisted of very good runners, which helped push the Greenwave to do even better. “I like running against people like that,” Breeds said about the tough competition. “It gives you a goal. It creates that mentality of ‘I have to get up there I have to run faster.’ As a team, we all feel that way. We realize we have to pack together and run as a team.” Tomorrow, the five runners will face an even a tougher group of competitors in the state meet. There will also be a mix of runners from Trinity and Daviess County (ranked 16th in the nation). “We’ll have to practice hard next week,” said Medley. “We have to put everything on the line for that race.” The boys Class 3A race begins at 1:30 p.m. at Lexington Horse Park.

Who runs in the series you might ask? Johnny Benson, Ron Hornaday, Mike Skinner, Todd Bodine and Ted Musgrave to name a few. Why should you watch? Because it’s the closest any points race has been with one race left to go in NASCAR history. Benson, a former Nationwide champion, leads by three points over Hornaday, the series’ defending and three-time champion. “I’m going there with the same mindset as we did in Daytona unless it needs to change during the race,” Benson said. “If it needs to change a little, I’ll deal with it then. Right now, no mindset different than every race I’ve ever run this season. “The Exide Batteries team’s goal is to go win the race, I think we need to do that. The goal is to try to win the race and do what we have to do to be competitive depending on where the points are going into the race and the developments during the race; we’d love to win it.”

Roller coaster season heads into playoff action By Ben Achtabowski sports@thenewsstandard.com With the Meade County Greenwave football season’s fair share of peaks and valleys due to youth, inexperience and a tough schedule, it has been far from boring. But tonight, it comes down to one game as the Kentucky state playoffs begin. “Hopefully the fruits of our labor and the roller coaster ride will pay off this week,” Greenwave head coach Larry Mofield said. “It’s do or die now.” After clinching the No. 2 seed in the district, Meade County will host the Louisville Pleasure Ridge Park Panthers tonight at Hamilton field. The playoffs will not get any easier for the Greenwave, who will face yet another formidable foe. PRP is 4-4 on a shortened schedule due to a cancellation of games during the wind storm early in the fall and the passing away of PRP student and football player Max Gilpin at the beginning of the season. “I’m sure it’s been a difficult year,” Mofield said. “I don’t know (PRP’s head) coach (Jason) Stinson that well, but he’s done a heck of a job this year. To play the schedule they have had and still come out with a 4-4 record, he may

get coach of the year in Kentucky.” PRP placed third out of a tough Class 6A District 3, which includes St. Xavier, Butler, and duPont Manual, but also played tough out-of-district games and recorded wins over Doss, Seneca, and the Greenwave’s arch nemesis North Hardin two weeks ago. However, the Panthers are coming off a bye week and may come out a little flat against Meade County. “You never know how it will turn out,” Mofield said about PRP’s reaction from its bye week. “It will give them some extra time to prepare, which is an advantage (for them). I think it may be a disadvantage when it comes to timing. I just don’t know how much of a factor it will be; hopefully it will help us out. But you never really know.” PRP brings a successful run game to Hamilton field tonight in a Wing-T offense that is a little bit of a throwback compared to the airborne offenses of North Hardin, Fern Creek and Connor. “The one thing that makes them a little more difficult to prepare for is we haven’t seen a true running team (like PRP).” Mofield said. “That’s one of our challenges this week at practice.” According to Mofield, the Panthers

defense is another strength. “They are fast on defense,” he said. “They run an even-front defense. It’s nothing out of the ordinary. You don’t see different defenses, either it’s an odd front or even front. If we’re not prepared for that by now, then we’ll never be prepared.” With the weather conditions becoming more harsh, the Greenwave expect a grind-it-out game. “It’s going to be sloppy,” Mofield said about preparing for Friday’s game. “The weather conditions are going to be terrible. We have to play in it, so you might as well practice in it. It’s football, you have to play in the elements.” With that being said, a low scoring defensive struggle might just play into the hands of Meade County, but Mofield feels the team just can’t give away the game like they have done in the past. “We seem to find a way to shoot ourselves in the foot,” Mofield said. “That’s one thing we have been consistent with, and that’s not a good thing. I’m hoping we’ll break that pattern.” If the Greenwave can avoid these mistakes, maybe this roller coaster ride can go on a little bit longer. The kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. at Meade County High School.

Heart From page B1 home with a loss.” Second, was finishing the regular season with a .500 record instead of falling under the .500 mark. “It’s very different finishing 5-5 rather than 4-6,” head coach Larry Mofield said. “Twenty years from now people aren’t going to look at the scores, they will only care about the record. We tell the kids a win is a win.” Third, was gaining some much needed momentum as the Greenwave hosts its first playoff game against Louisville Pleasure Ridge Park tonight. “This win is great,” senior linebacker Jimmy Crase said. “It changes the whole mood of the locker room, the fans; and it gives everyone something to look forward to.” Add in the fact that the victory was in shutout fashion, and Meade County is ready for the playoffs. “It’s just amazing,” said senior linemen Marcus Feemster, who had a tackle and a sack during last Friday’s game. “Especially, since it’s our first shutout (of the season). We’re just doing what we can. Some weeks we’re off, this week we were on and I think we’ll continue that through playoffs. We’ll take a swing at PRP next week.” The Greenwave received its momentum during the first possession of the game when the offense marched 69 yards for the first score

The drive included a 47yard pass from junior quarterback Tyler Mattingly to senior wide receiver Michael Addesa to put the Greenwave on Woodford County’s 10-yard line. Mattingly finished the night with 81 yards through the air on five completions, Addesa caught two of those passes for 62 yards. Three plays later, junior fullback Ricky Funk took the ball up the middle for a 12yard touchdown. Senior kicker Jonah Cundiff added the point after attempt to make the score 7-0. “That first score was important to us,” Mofield said. “That helped us get the momentum and then we were able to play some pretty solid defense against a really good offensive team.” The Woodford County offense this year has been very effective by scoring 288 points and accumulating over 3,000 yards. However, it has been shut out during the last two games, according to Mofield. “(That) is surprising to me,” he said about the Yellow

Jackets recent offensive struggles. “Anytime you shut out a team, it’s big.” Meade County held the Yellow Jackets offense to 155 yards and three interceptions. The biggest interception of the night was scored 16 seconds into the second half when Addesa picked off a pass and returned it 30 yards for a touchdown. Cundiff added the extra point to extend the lead to 14-0. “Coming out in the second half and picking off that pass and scoring was huge for us,” Mofield said. “We have laid some eggs in the second half, so to speak, this year. We didn’t lay an egg tonight.” While the defense locked down on Woodford County, the Greenwave offense soared with 315 total yards. Sixty-five of those yards came from Meade County’s final touchdown of the night. The seven-play, 65-yard drive culminated with junior fullback Tyler Crow’s 3-yard touchdown run up the middle during the first play of the fourth quarter. Cundiff split the

uprights to make the final score 21-0. Crow ended the night with a season-high 110 yards on 17 carries. Furnival added 68 yards on 17 carries for Meade County. After the senior night victory, players expressed their excitement. “It’s a whole weight off your shoulders,” Crase said. “I’m never nervous before a football game, but that’s one game you really look forward to win and really get pumped up. It’s a great feeling.” “I love the camaraderie,” Feemster added. “There’s not many seniors, but they’re my best friends. I love them to death. I’ll remember being out there with my friends making plays, and not making plays that’s just how football goes.”

Archery team gets into full swing with indoor shoots Submitted by Meade County Archery

Over the last three weeks, the students from Meade County have participated in open ranges at the Meade County Fairgrounds. Open ranges introduce the sport of archery to new archers allows them to try and see if they want to pursue the sport further. Also, the open ranges help the returning archers work out the kinks after taking the summer off from the sport. Last Year, Meade County had the top middle school female in the United States; Meaghan Dunn of Stuart Pepper Middle School and the top high school female

in the United States, Courtney Campbell. Stuart Pepper Middle School team led by coach Travis Stull placed second in the nation overall in the middle school division. For more information on archery within Meade County and Meade County Schools go to the Web site at www.eteamz. com/Meadearchery. The National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) provides international-style target archery instruction to students in fourth through 12th grades as part of an in-school curriculum. These schools may then form after-school programs and compete on a state and

national level. Kentucky initiated the NASP organization in 2002 with 22 schools participating. With the program’s overwhelming success, other states began to adopt the program as well. Currently, 46 states and three additional countries have implemented the program in their schools. The benefits from participating in archery are endless. Gaining the knowledge of a life-long sport is secondary to learning teamwork, self-discipline, and a sense of accomplishment.

Gun season opens, while local hunters bring in catches

Last weekend, local hunters enjoyed the opening of gun season by harvesting deer across Meade county. There were many hunters who had luck hunting, including Levi Wilkins who shot his first deer. The 14-year-old harvested the 145 pound, eight-point buck and he is the son of Mike Wilkins and Becky Moslander

of Brandenburg. Here are a few other local hunters and their catches. There are plenty of more photos to come, check next weeks issue of The News Standard. If you would like to get into the paper with your deer, send photos to sports@thenewsstandard.com.

By Samantha Weaver •If you’re like most people, the length of your footprint is approximately 15 percent of your height. •Those who study such matters claim that Queen Elizabeth I was rather fond of playing practical jokes on her courtiers. •It was American journalist and Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Ellen Goodman who made the following sage observation: “Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for -- in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.” •Hens don’t actually sit on their eggs; they squat on them, keeping their weight on their feet. •You’re probably aware of the muchpublicized fact that the Great Wall of China is one of the only human constructions that is visible from outer space. You might not know, however, that the extensive network of dikes that keeps the ocean out of the Netherlands is another such construction. •In the United States, about $8 billion is spent every year on dry cleaning. •In 1841, eyewitnesses in Derby, England, reported seeing frogs and fish fall from the sky. Some of the animals were even alive. •Native Americans once used the herb Echinacea to treat snake bites. •Thought for the Day: “What this country needs is more free speech worth listening to.” -- Hansell B.

Horoscopes HOCUS-FOCUS

By Henry Boltinoff © 2008 King Features Synd., Inc.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although your energy level is high, be careful not to commit to too many projects at this time. You'll do better focusing on just a few tasks rather than spreading yourself too thin.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your heart might be leading you in one direction, but pay attention to your keen Bovine intellect. I'm cautioning you to think things through before making any commitments.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your "serious" Twin has been dominant in your life for quite a while. It's time now to let that "wilder" half take you out for some good times -- perhaps with someone very special.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Career aspects are high for Moon Children who make a good impression. Show people not only what you can already do, but also how you can be more valuable to them in the future.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) Things start to brighten for the Lion's immediate financial future. But be careful to resist the urge to splurge. You need to tuck something away to help you through another tight period.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Having to do too many tasks in too short a time could lower your mood to just above the grumbling level. But if you handle things one at a time, you'll get through it all soon enough.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your usually carefully made holiday plans could be subject to change later this month. Use this week to prepare for that possibility by starting a Plan B just in case you need it.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Be careful about joining a colleague's plan to solve a workplace problem. Investigate it thoroughly. Otherwise, you could find yourself in a predicament with other associates.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Slow down that highpaced whirl you've been on. Spending quiet time alone or with people you care for can be both physically and spiritually restorative.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Make suggestions, not demands. You'll be more successful in getting people to follow your lead if you exercise quiet patience instead of strong persuasion to get your ideas across.

Last Week’s Solutions

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You still need more facts before you can make an informed career choice. One note of caution: Be careful about whom you ask for that information; otherwise, you could be misled.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Changing situations through the end of the week could lead to some challenging opportunities for those perspicacious Pisceans who know how to make them work to their advantage.

BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of being both daring and cautious, traits that could make you a research scientist or maybe even a rocket-ship designer. (c) 2008 King Features Synd., Inc.

YOUTH Enter the Blogosphere with the library

Friday, November 14, 2008

B10 - The News Standard

Submitted by Megan Stith Meade County Public Library Have you heard about the newest addition to the Meade County Public Library? As well as a Web site and Facebook page, we now have a blog to help keep you informed about the many programs and services the library offers. A “blog,” which is short for “weblog,” is an online journal where content is added daily that can be commented on by readers. Most blogs combine text, pictures, and links to other pages the reader might find useful. The library blog has posts written by the librarians about upcoming programs as well as information you can use at home. For example, if you couldn’t bring your children to our latest Story Hour program, the book title, rhymes, crafts, and activities are listed on the blog so you can try the program on your own. There is also a “Fingerplay of the Day” for parents to share with their infants and toddlers. If you are looking for information on a particular topic, you can use “tags” to categorize our blog postings. One of the main purposes of a blog is to interact with the community, so we welcome your comments, suggestions, and ideas for future programs you would like to see at the library. Take a minute to visit our blog at www.meadereads. blogspot.com and be sure to check back often since new information is added every day. As of December 2007, the blog search engine Technorati was tracking more than 112 million blogs on the internet. Blogs can be written about anything, such as technology, music, politics, or what life is like in Meade County. If you have an opinion you would like to express by creating your own blog, blogger.com, zoomshare. com, and wordpress.com are easy and free places to start. Hope to see you often in the “blogosphere.” Upcoming events at MCPL •Story Hour Schedule — Story Hour is offered for children age five and under every Tuesday at 10:30 a.m.

in the Annex. Our themes for November will be Turkeys (Nov. 18), Thanksgiving (Nov. 25), and Holidays of the World (Dec.2). •Early Literacy Workshop for Parents and Caregivers — Parents can begin at birth to help children learn important pre-reading skills. Join us for a workshop on Nov. 17 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Annex to learn how to use books, programs, and other resources at your library to prepare your children for reading success. Hear suggestions on what to read and how to read to young children so they can get the most from the experience. Give your children a lifelong advantage. Read to them often and ask today about how your library partners with parents to get children ready to read. •“What I’m Thankful For” contest — This Thanksgiving contest has three categories available to children through 6th grade. For those in second grade and below, children can color and decorate a workbook provided by the library to show different things they are grateful for. Students should ask their teachers for a copy. Third through fourth graders are challenged to get creative in a turkey-making contest. Make a turkey out of anything you can think of. A writing contest will be

Now is the time for high school seniors to begin paying close attention to application deadlines for college admissions and financial aid. Here are some tips from the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA) and The Student Loan People: •If you have not yet chosen a college, narrow your list by visiting schools and talking with students and your parents. •If you plan to go through the early decision process, which means you commit to going to a particular school in the fall, most schools request the applications be submitted about this time of year. •If you’re going through the regular admissions process, now is the time to talk with teachers about writing recommendations and to work on your admissions essay if you need to write one. Many private colleges require an essay as part of the admissions process. •Check with the financial aid offices of the schools to which you’ve applied to determine if any additional financial aid forms, other than the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), are required. •Familiarize yourself with the FAFSA. Unless you’re starting college before July 1, you can’t file the FAFSA until after the first of the year. But you should take a look at the information it requires and make plans to attend a College Goal Sunday session near you. Your counselor should have information about College Goal Sunday. •Attend any college fairs and financial aid seminars offered by your high school or in your area. If a company wants to charge you a fee for helping you with admissions and financial aid applications, make sure it’s a reputable company by checking with the State Attorney General’s office or Better Business Bureau in your area, as well as the area where the firm is located.

Box 798, Frankfort, KY 40602-0798; or call 800-9288926, extension 7381. For information about low-cost student loans, visit www.studentloanpeople.com; write The Student Loan People, P.O.
