Students individual needs are met in county schools By Jennifer Corbett The News Standard Editor’s Note: This is the first story in a six-part series concerning different aspects of a student’s life in Meade County and the opportunities available to them. To Meade County School board officials, each student is like a snowflake. Each and every one of them is unique and deserves different types of attention. The goal of the Meade

County school system is to recognize the needs of its students by offering programs to help each succeed. On the playground and in the classroom, students are who need special accommodations in order to help them learn more and interact with their peers are not disappointed with the Meade County school system. Whether it be a wheelchair ramp or banning peanuts; it is apparent that school officials go above and beyond to make students feel

Lightning injures Fort Knox cadet Staff Report The News Standard

2010 SCHOOL SERIES welcome and at ease. According to Jason Sutton, director of pupil personnel, students can be accommodated through two differentprograms:an“IEP”ora 504 Plan. Through those accommodations, Meade County can provide extra time and a quiet room for tests, scribes, readers,

reinforcement for behavioral modification and prompting, and queuing. First, there is an “Individual Education Plan” (IEP), which focuses on students with special needs. IEP helps create a plan that will help a student reach his or her fullest potential. Each IEP depends on the

individual needs of the students, said Nancy Mitcham, director of special education. At the beginning of each school year, each student is screened. Once in the classroom, if a teacher starts noticing that a student is struggling, a team will review the concerns and develop “intervention(s)” which are based on data about the student’s success rate in a certain subject. The intervention targets specific areas. After the intervention, if

problems persist, teachers refer the students to the Admissions and Release Committee (ARC) made up of professionals and parents. The ARC assesses the student, with their parent or guardian, to determine whether or not the student needs services. This process can take up to 60 school days. “It may seem like a long, drawn out process,” Mitcham said. “But we want See SCHOOL, Page A7

Rounding out another county fair

A female Fort Knox cadet who was training on a Leadership Development course near West Point was struck by lightning on Tuesday afternoon, according to Fort Knox Chief of Public Affairs Steve Arell. “Cadre (a group of cadets) on the ground saw lightning strike and put in a call to halt training, and officers designated a ‘safe area’,” Arell said. “When they hustled to that area, the cadet was struck.” See SOLDIER, Page A2

Board rejects Old Ekron lot rezoning Fowl play puts a damper on the fair


The 2010 Meade County Fair came to an end last weekend, see our special fair coverage throughout this week’s issue of The News Standard.

The Brandenburg Planning Commission unanimously denied the request to rezone a lot on Old Ekron Road from R-1 status to R-2. The vote was 4-0. The decision on the area, located between 933 and 937 Old Ekron Road, came at a special meeting held Tuesday evening. See REZONE, Page A9

When Payneville resident Tobby Oaks woke up Friday morning, he had lots to crow about. One of his roosters won the crowing contest the night before, and he was on his way to the fairgrounds to show a couple pairs of old English

bantams in the poultry and rabbit show. Still beaming with pride and excited by the impending poultry and rabbit show, Oaks made his way to the fairgrounds the next morning. However, his triumph was soured when he returned to the fairgrounds livestock barn for the rabbit and poultry judging to find out one of his

pairs (one rooster and one hen) of blue-breasted Old English game bantams had been stolen the night before. “What’s the odds, really?” Oaks said. “That’s the last thing I expected when I brought my chickens to the fair.” What began as a morning of bad news turned bittersweet for the first time chicken showman.

Kentuckians are paying more for food By Casey Tolliver The News Standard The price Kentuckians pay for food has risen sharply during the second quarter of the year, according to a Marketbasket survey conducted by the Kentucky Farm Bureau Federation in June. Kentuckians are paying $108.48 for 40 basic grocery items, this is an increase of $4.86 for the same list of items reported in a survey from the first quarter of the year, the federation announced in a press release earlier this month. This was the highest Marketbasket total reported since

the first quarter of 2009. The survey, which included items from the six basic food groups, concluded beef has become the highest priced food category with a 13 percent average price increase. “In May, June, July and August, we’ll always see an increase in beef prices,” Meade County Cattleman’s Association president Kevin Stith said. “Believe it or not, it’s a grill factor. People always eat a lot of beef during these months.” T-bone steaks signaled the largest single-item change after experiencing a $1.82 jump in price. Sirloin tip roast suffered

a 21 percent spike in cost increasing from $3.72 per pound in March to $4.50 per pound in June. Despite the seasonal influx of prices during summer months, average beef prices were lower last summer than this year. The increase in the price of beef could be the result of a dichotomy of both long and short-term issues. However, economic duress could be putting a strain on the beef industry and may lead to a potential long-term price hike. Rising fertilizer, corn and soybean prices mean farmers’ inputs have increased as well. Adding to

the strain, soybeans are the main source of protein for cattle. The repercussions of the economic impact create an imbalance in the supply and demand curve of the beef industry. “As those prices go up, more and more (beef) producers get out,” Stith said. Last year ’s survey revealed dismal prices paid to livestock and dairy farmers resulted in lower prices of meat and dairy products during July 2009. Certain fruits and vegetables, which are generally See FOOD, Page A9

Another pair of his chickens won grand champion of the poultry contest, the same morning he found out an additional pair of his Old English game bantam chickens were stolen. According to show superintendents, there are no concrete suspects yet, but three suspicious acting

Early birds flock to annual MC Farm Bureau Breakfast By Brian Graves The News Standard Tom Ridge, pastor of Wolf Creek Baptist Church, said it all in his opening prayer for the Meade County Farm Bureau Breakfast held last Thursday morning. “We look forward to the harvest,” Ridge prayed. “And, are thankful for the farmers that grow this.” This was the third year for the event and more than 200 attended enjoying a hearty meal of eggs, sausage, cooked apples, and biscuits and gravy. During the morning, the attendees heard from County Extension Agent for Family and Consumer Services Jennifer Bridge. Bridge discussed the “Clothesline of Quilts” program started in Meade County in 2006. The clothesline consists of a series of barns

throughout the Appalachian region which have a decorative “quilt block” attached to the side. “Our goal was to boost tourism in the county and bring people off the interstate so they can see what a beautiful county Meade County is and share the cultural heritage of the region and stimulate interest in quilting,” Bridge said. It appears from the numbers at least part of those goals have been achieved. “We have more quilting classes in the county,” she said “We had originally set a goal of 12 (clothesline) blocks,” Bridge said. “We now have 28 and five more in progress.” Andy Mills, county extension agent for agriculture and natural resources, also addressed the crowd and noted the success of the quilt clothesline. “In the back of my mind I thought no one is going

to pay $200 to have a quilt block hung on their barn,” Mills said. “Boy, was I wrong. What an amazing thing we have so many quilts in such a short period of time. It has been a good thing.” Mills also noted the beginnings of the 4-H programs in September. “The 4-H programs reach over 1,200 youth in school enrichment programs,” Mills noted. He also announced a new agriculture field day to be held on Friday, Aug. 6 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Eddie Pike’s in Andyville. The day will feature a lunch and several special programs on subjects including soybean, cattle feed, herbicide, and retailing beef. Nathan Beavin, president, Meade County Farm Bureau Young Farmers, concluded the morning saying, “We’ll see you next year on Thursday morning.”

was indirectly hit by the bolt, but was uninjured. She was taken to Ireland Army Community Hospital on Fort Knox for observations as a precaution. Arell said it was a “popup storm” which developed quickly and didn’t even appear on radars. The impromptu storm gave no warning, affording

Fort Knox officials little time to take safety precautions. “Safety here is paramount, so if there’s anything that pertains to the weather that endangers the safety of cadets, training is immediately stopped,” Arell said. Previous reports stating two cadets were injured were incorrect, according to Arell.

More than 200 Meade Countians came out in the early morning, Thursday, to enjoy a homecooked country breakfast. Guest speaker, Meade County Extension Agent for Family and Consumer Services Jennifer Bridge presented a slideshow on the “Clothesline of Quilts” project at the annual fair breakfast last week.


Benefit from tap and bottled water Jennifer Bridge Family & Consumer Science With the summer heat exceeding our comfort levels water consumption has great increased. Water is a vital part of our lives; so it’s no surprise that it is also a big business. The big debate is whether tap or bottled water is better for you. The short answer is each has benefits. However, sales of bottled water have tripled over the last 10 years. Some believe this is due to marketing ploys; it’s hard to tell if it really is better for you than just plain tap water. In fact, 25 percent of bottled water is taken directly from the same reservoirs where we get our tap water. There are three different kinds of bottled water: natural mineral water, spring water, and purified water, each having different characteristics. Natural mineral water

is drawn from water tables underground and has healthy minerals in it. Spring water is similar to mineral water but does not have the constant mineral composition. Purified water is taken from lakes, rivers, or underground springs and has been treated to rid it of minerals and contaminants, which makes it almost identical to tap water. As a result, the Food and Drug Administration is considering placing more restrictions on bottled water. If you purchase bottled water there are several things you can do to help the environment. Cut down on the amount of plastic in landfills by saving and refilling your bottles, but be sure to wash and rinse your bottles between each use. After you are finished with the bottles, recycle them. Recycling eliminates landfill waste and the plastic can be used to make a variety of byproducts, including clothing. When purchasing bottled spring water, look on the label and choose the

one whose source is located closest to you. The farther away the source of water, the more non-renewable fuel was used to transport it. This not only increases our dependency on oil, but also pollutes our environment. Some brands of spring water bottled in or near Kentucky include Highbridge Spring Water, English Mountain Spring Water, Appalachian Springs and Sparkles Bottled Water. Every person has a right to safe, good-tasting water from the tap. If we choose to buy bottled water, we deserve assurances that it too is safe. In addition, whether our water comes from a tap or a bottle, we have a right to know what’s in it. For more information about the safety of bottled and tap water, contact the Meade County Cooperative Extension Service. Educational Programs of the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, age, sex, religion, disability or national origin.

The News Standard - A3

More than just books It’s hard to find a good bargain these days. But, in Meade County, we have one of the best bargains available. The Meade County Public Library (MCPL) has proven itself in the last few years to be of invaluable service to the community and can easily stand as an example to the rest of the state on how such a facility should operate. It is here where, during the last year, more than 75,000 books were checked out. Judging the basic reason for a library, MCPL fits the bill with those numbers alone. But, no longer is the library thought of as a stodgy place with a large “Quiet” sign on the wall and people sitting rigid at reading tables. Not here. Our local library is a place filled with constant activity. It is here where more than 11,000 children have been able to enjoy activities of all kinds. And, as important, while doing this they discover the joy of reading. Reading is the most fundamental need for anyone as they grow into adulthood and the MCPL is doing more than its fair share to ensure the local children are instilled with that ability. Not only do they bring the children into the library, they take the library on the road — literally. With their bookmobile, MCPL is able to assist with reading programs at the various county schools. And, that bookmobile is also able to serve adults who might not otherwise be able to visit the library in person. But, it’s not just books. MCPL also provides programs for teens in the area, thereby giving an age group that can be prone to trouble at times a place to have fun, be creative, and use their youthful energies in a constructive and educational way. The library has also become a community center of sorts where people meet to discuss the issues of the day, meet new friends, or bring the family for time together with other families. For the movie lover, feature films, documentaries, musicals and classic television shows are available to check out and enjoy. And, if there’s a book or movie you can’t find — just ask. They can get it for you. How about needing to hit the Internet for a few moments? You can do that there as well. Whether you take advantage of one of the computers at the library or bring your own laptop, Internet service is also available. The library also hosts programs for a wide variety of interests. Whether you want to learn yoga or how to make a handmade card for someone special, the MCPL is the place. And what do all these services cost for those who want to use them? Nothing. Zero. That’s not a good bargain. That’s a great bargain. And much to the friendly and enthusiastic library staff’s credit, they are able to offer all this at no cost while receiving funding less than the average amount currently realized by all state public libraries. And, it’s only going to get better. Anticipation grows for the library’s new facility to be constructed on Old Ekron Road and scheduled to be completed next year. The new building will give the library almost three times more room than its current home provides and the plans are to fill that space with just as much information and activity as it will hold. So, there is no reason to be bored. Go get a book, a movie, take a class, play a game, meet a friend, or surf the Web. It’s all there. For free. It’s fortunate we have this remarkable place with remarkable people available for our area. The Meade County Public Library is definitely a place for which the community should be incredibly proud.

Fair changes are something everyone could enjoy Ben Achtabowski Good Call There is no doubt the Meade County Fair has a reputation of being one of the best in the state. The fair board has done amazing things to build the fair into the attraction it is today. They have raised the bar high for themselves, however, they can’t become complacent with the current status of the fair. The point of striving to be the best is setting a standard and exceeding it — and now is time to further the fair’s standards. While the fair has great events such as two nights of nationally competitive tractor and truck pulls, pageants and even an $8,000 cash drawing, diversity seems to be lacking. Stepping back and looking at the overall fair, the events are catered to a select group. Understandably so, the fair is heavily tailored with 4-H events and tractor pulls reign supreme in a rural areas such as Meade County. Nevertheless it may be time to draw in people outside the agricultural spectrum. Of the 56 sanctioned (according to the fair event catalog) events throughout the week-long fair, 14 are animals shows and 4-H events. There are seven events that are related to pulls (whether it’s the two nights of tractor pulls, peddle pulls or horse pulls) and nine different pageants. That leaves

only 26 events that don’t encompass animal shows, pulls and pageants. Of the eight nights that have events going on during the fair, two of the nights are pulls while two of the other nights consist of demolition derbies. Now this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, however redundancy may cause potential repeat fairgoers from attending one night or another. The fair needs to depend on diversity to keep people flooding the fair gates every night despite poor economy stricken times. Considering it takes $8 for each person at the gate. Multiply that times a family of four — that’s $32. Mix in around $5 a person on food or carnival rides makes a night of fair fun running around $52 for a family of four. If a family goes four of the eight nights the of fair, it may cost them around $200 during the week. Spending that chunk of change people, rightfully so, want the biggest bang for their buck. The fair board may want to consider this when planning future events and possibly adding events that can reach a broad amount of spectators and participants Last year the fair board brought in the lawnmower derby and the rollover contest. Much of this has to do with the economy where finding two nights of demolition derby participants is nearly impossible. The rollover and lawnmower derby has been a great addition to the fair

and has been well received by the crowd. Yet, the events takes less than an hour to complete — this is where a bigger bang for a buck comes into play. These events — although good additions — are far from thinking outside the box in terms of attracting various walks of life. How about a barbeque cook off? With the success of cooking shows on television certainly there are enough people who would love to show off their cooking skills while others would love to taste fine barbeque. Or what about a lumberjack competition? Watching events such as chain sawing, axing races and other tree-chopping activities are a blast to watch on television. Would it be more fun to watch in person? Plus, how many people in the area would love to show off their chainsaw skills or their brute strength with an old-fashioned ax? Speaking of brute strength, how about a strong man competition? Or an arm wrestling competition? One of the more obvious events that could be brought into the arena is a rodeo. With so many horse shows and cow shows at the fair, there’s no doubt there are plenty of cowboys and cowgirls that would like to wrangle and steer or ride a bull. A rodeo is a great way to change up the pace throughout the week, while not getting too far away from the agricultural roots of the fair. Motocross has been a

fantastic addition the past few years and is a great crowd getter during the first full day of the fair. With the access of the large arena how about having a dirt bike jumping contest — sort of like an X-Games type of event where the motocrossers can show off their jumping skills. Music should be more prevalent at the county fair. With many local and area bands there’s no reason there can’t be a complete concert night which showcases bands or even have a battle of the bands contest. Maybe these bands can play in between tractor pulls or heats of the demolition derby to liven up the dead space during the event. Or even have a square dance area where country fans can have a boot scootin’ good time. The fair did have a concert night this year, yet weather played a part as storms rolled through the area. Weather is one thing the fair board can’t control; it’s strictly a reason why people don’t come out. Last year the fair was harassed by rain and this year heat scorched the fair. Regardless of outside factors, the fair must get better. By no means is this saying the fair is not worth going to. But it’s encouraging progress. The last thing anyone wants to see is the Meade County Fair become stagnate. It’s time to see the high bar that the Meade County fair has placed and jump over it. Adding new diverse events is the first step to doing that.

Gibbs would say such a flatly true thing. The simplest is that Gibbs was asked whether the House is in play on “Meet the Press” and in the flush of the moment slipped up with an honest answer. Whatever the explanation, Pelosi is enraged at his counterrevolutionary backsliding. The more important question is: Why aren’t Democrats mad at President Barack Obama (and Speaker Pelosi) for endangering their majority, rather than at Gibbs for acknowledging the fact it’s at risk? In their reaction to Gibbs, Democrats have vitiated what seemed most admirable

about their determination to pass health-care reform: its astounding political heedlessness. They were doing it simply because they thought it was right. Or so it seemed. What looked to all the world like an act of political harakiri borne of ideological righteousness, the Democrats considered a common-sense step for which they’d inevitably be rewarded by the voters. And they’ll get their reward, good and hard. The latest three national polls show that the public opposes the health-care reform by 49-36, 53-40 and 47-35 (in CBS, Public Policy Polling and Pew surveys, respectively).

According to Gallup, conservatives outnumber liberals in America by 2-1. That datum alone should be enough to make a liberal speaker of the House concerned above all about holding down the middle. Instead, Pelosi has led the charge for ruinously expensive initiatives that have inflamed the right and alienated independents. According to talk show host Bill Press, the American public doesn’t deserve a leader as effective and farsighted as Obama. “It just shows once again that the American people are spoiled,” Press says. Such is the agony.

The agony of the Democratic revolution Rich Lowry

National Review The great Democratic revolution of 2008 is entering its pitiful stage. If Nancy Pelosi had a guillotine, Robert Gibbs’ head would be rolling around in a basket. His offense? Uttering perhaps the most unassailably accurate statement of his tenure as White House press secretary: that there is “no doubt” Republicans might take back the House. Theories abound for why

Men’s, women’s bodies unique; have myriad differences James Dobson Focus on the Family QUESTION: You’ve discussed briefly some of the physiological and emotional differences between the sexes. Could you list other physical characteristics unique to males and females? DR. DOBSON: Men and women differ in countless ways, many of which they aren’t even conscious of. Here are just a few of those differences: 1. A woman has greater constitutional vitality, perhaps because of her unique chromosomal pattern. Normally, she outlives a man by about five years

in the U.S. females simply have a stronger hold on life than males, even in the uterus. More than 140 male babies are conceived for every 100 females; by the time birth occurs, the ratio is 105 to 100, with the rest of the males dying in spontaneous abortions. 2. Men have a higher incidence of death from almost every disease except three disorders related to female reproduction and breast cancer. 3. Men have a higher rate of basal metabolism than women. 4. The sexes differ in skeletal structure, women having a shorter head, broader face, less protruding chin, shorter legs and longer trunk. The first finger of a woman’s hand is usually longer than the third; with

men the reverse is true. Men’s teeth last longer than do those of women. 5. Women have a larger stomach, kidneys, liver and appendix, and smaller lungs than men. 6. Women have three very important physiological functions that are absent in men — menstruation, pregnancy and lactation. Each of these mechanisms influence behavior and feelings significantly. Female hormonal patterns are more complex and varied. The glands work differently in the two sexes. For example, a woman’s thyroid is larger and more active; it enlarges during menstruation and pregnancy, which makes her more prone to goiter, provides resistance to cold, is associated with the smooth skin, relatively hairless body, and the thin

layer of subcutaneous fat which are important elements in the concept of personal beauty. Women are also more responsive emotionally, laughing and crying more readily. 7. Women’s blood contains more water (20 percent fewer red cells). Since red cells supply oxygen to the body, she tires more easily and is more prone to faint. Her constitutional viability is therefore strictly a long-range matter. When the working day in British factories, under wartime conditions, was increased from 10 to 12 hours, accidents among women increased 150 percent; the rate of accidents among men did not increase significantly. 8. Men are 50 percent stronger than women in brute strength. 9. Women’s hearts beat

more rapidly than those of men (80 beats per minute versus 72 beats per minute). Their blood pressure (ten points lower than men) varies more from minute to minute, but they have much less tendency to high blood pressure — at least until after menopause. 10. Female lung capacity is about 30 percent less than in males. 11. Women can withstand high temperatures better than men due to differences in their metabolism. 12. Men and women differ in every cell of their bodies because they carry a differing chromosomal pattern. The implications of those genetic components range from obvious to extremely subtle. For example, when researchers visited high school and college cam-

puses to study behavior of the sexes, they observed that males and females even transported their books in different ways. The young men tended to carry them at their sides with their arms looped over the top. Women and girls, by contrast, usually cradled their books at their breasts, in much the same way they would a baby. Who can estimate how many other sex-related influences lie below the level of consciousness?

What happened after Jesus’ resurrection? Submitted by Pastor Al Earley What happened after the resurrection of Jesus Christ? That Jesus was dead and then raised, there is no doubt in Paul’s letters, the Gospels, and Acts. We have to blend these accounts to begin to get a picture of the amazing events that follow There are plenty of skeptics who doubt the resurrection happened at all. Let’s look at what the Bible teaches. Jesus died on Good Friday and was raised the next Sunday. The first witnesses to the resurrection were three women at the empty tomb. After this, rumors began flying as disciples and other followers see and talk to Jesus, who was thought dead. Some even touched him and had a meal with him. For forty days these appearances occurred, rather randomly, to somewhere

between 100 and 500 people, and it brought the believers back together, as they gathered on a mountain outside of Jerusalem and saw Jesus ascend into the heavens after giving them the greatest command, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20). I am struck by the brevity and lack of detail used in the Bible to explain the resurrection and ascension. My guess is that these first followers of Jesus were experiencing things that could barely be explained in words. But their message was very clear. Jesus was murdered on a cross. He was dead and buried in a tomb. But his resurrection marks

his victory over sin, death, and evil. We share in that victory when we believe in him and follow his teachings. This anecdote communicates what I think about the skepticism and cynicism of our age toward the power of God to save us from our sins through his son. A divinity school invited a great theologian to lecture on the resurrection. He spoke for two and onehalf hours “proving” that the resurrection of Jesus was false quoting scholar after scholar and book after book. He concluded that since there was no such thing as the historical resurrection, the religious tradition of the church was groundless, emotional mumbo-jumbo, because it was based on a relationship with a risen Jesus, who, in fact, never rose from the dead in any literal sense. He then asked if there were any questions. After about 30 seconds, an

In your daily relationship with God, never fail to forgive others Dan Newton Divine Guidance

Matthew 6:12 says, “And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.” ( KJV ) When I was a teenager, I disobediently took my father’s car out for a joy ride when he wasn’t at home. Unfortunately, I ended up running the car off a country road into a ditch. I went to him and said, “Dad, I’ve got to tell you I feel terrible about what I did. I was wrong, deceitful, dishonest. I knew better than to do that. I’m sorry, and I want to

ask you to forgive me.” he said, “ You are forgiven but you will pay for the car.” Now when I damaged my father’s car did I cease to be my father’s son? No. But my relational forgiveness was in deep trouble. If you want to know the oneness with the Lord in your daily relationship with Him, if you want to feel the reality of your forgiveness when you pray to God, don’t hold grudges against others and fail to forgive them. You can’t come to God and expect to enjoy His forgiveness of your sins while you have not confessed your own sin of unforgiveness and forgiven your brother. If you want to know the daily sense of your forgive-

ness in your walk with the Lord, then you must forgive those who have wronged you.

old preacher stood up. “I have one question,” he said as he started eating an apple out of his sack lunch. Now I haven’t read any of those books, and I can’t recite the scriptures in their original Greek, and I am not very familiar with Niebuhr and Heidegger.” He finished eating his apple. “All I want to know is this apple I just ate, was it bitter or sweet?” The professor paused for a moment and answered in exemplary scholarly fashion, “I cannot possibly answer that question, for I haven’t tasted your apple” The preacher dropped the core of his apple into his crumpled paper bag, looked up at the professor and said calmly, “Neither have you tasted my Jesus.” I can write on and on about what the Bible teaches about Jesus’ death, resurrection, and ascension, but unless you have encountered the risen Lord then you just won’t understand

His power. Have you experienced the powerful presence of the risen Lord in your life? The supernatural stories of Jesus’ resurrection become real again when we experience that presence in our hearts and souls. What barrier still keeps you from taking a leap of faith, giving your life completely to Christ, and letting your life be changed forever? Do you see the power of God’s love growing in your life? Have you heard Christ’s call to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age”? Have you experienced the powerful presence of the risen Lord in your life? Go therefore, and be a witness to what Christ has done in your life.

The News Standard - A7

County attorney conducts trial with a twist of humor By Brian Graves The News Standard

Take a dash of Court TV and mix lightly with Comedy Central and you would get a taste of the 2nd annual mock trial at the Meade County Fair last week. Sponsored by County Attorney Margaret Matney, the trial allows the general public to have a feel for the process legal professionals must go through and give their sense of current laws. On this particular case, local attorney Mark Scott allowed himself to be the “defendant” accused of a DUI charge. Scott played the role to the hilt — dressing in jail clothes and wearing stockings with decals around his arms to replicate prisoner tattoos. Rick Hardin, another area attorney, was the “prosecutor,” trying to place Scott under the pro-

to make sure that we do everything we can before identifying a student with a disability. Once we do make that determination, we want to do what’s best for the student.” If a child is found eligible, then the ARC develops an Individual Education Plan (IEP) which focuses on the needs of the student. Based on the students needs, the ARC then decides on the accommodations that the student requires. Different services can be offered for several types of disabled students, Sutton said. A child’s IEP plan is reviewed each year and every three years is evaluated to make sure the students still need the same services, Mitcham said. However, if a student doesn’t qualify for the IEP program, some students may be eligible for a 504 plan. According to Mitcham, a 504 Plan is broader and requires a medical diagnosis. Sec. 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act is a law that protects qualified individuals from discrimination based on their disability. The 504 plans are for students who have medical conditions that substantially limits the student’s performance in school. It’s an unfunded mandate, which means there is no funding given to school districts to provide these services. Students who have 504 plans are provided accommodations as needed in the regular classroom. Some students may need accommodations on a temporary basis. For example, if a student breaks their arm and

verbial jailhouse floor. And, with a sense of irony, Assistant County Attorney Great Noe, who usually prosecutes cases, tried to save Scott from jail. Matney assumed the role of judge and impaneled a “jury” of standby visitors, one of which was Scott’s wife. Meade County Sheriff’s Deputy Levi Mattingly was drafted to be the arresting officer and provide testimony against the “plaintiff” Scott. Four attorneys on stage provided the platform for a lot of legal humor between the career barristers. After an hour of questioning and testimony, the “jury” unanimously found Scott guilty. But, Matney took the opportunity to question the jury about the DUI laws and some of the technicalities about them. While there was a lot needs someone to help take notes for them they could get help through the 504 Plan, Sutton added. One type of major accommodation occured when Meade County decided to ban any peanut related item in Brandenburg Primary after finding out a student was deathly allergic to them. “We had some blowback from some families that were upset,” Sutton said. “You have a large group of people who love, myself included, peanut butter and jelly. So, it took us a while to get the word out that this is a life or death situation.” The major factor in this decision was communication and letting all parents know that the particular student could get deathly ill if exposed to a peanut or peanut-related item. “People need to understand we don’t do these things because we want to,” Sutton said. The school board knew that some families wouldn’t like the outcome since many kids regularly eat peanut butter. “I was picky when I was a kid, too,” Sutton said. “When we told people they couldn’t eat peanut butter it was hard for a while. But, that class of students and the one above and below, pretty much got used to it.” Some parents wondered if this decision was too harsh and should have required the student to eat in a separate room away from the rest of the student body. For school officials, the decision was based on what was best for the child. “Some would say ‘You can’t eat over here, eat over there,” Sutton said. “We don’t do that. We want to be inclusive.” Even though Mitcham

serious level every week,” Matney said. “This gives us the opportunity to show people the issues we deal with, but do so in a light-hearted fashion.” “We deal with some

was not involved in the decision, she thinks the outcome was positive. “They were wanting to make a safe environment for all students,” she said. Overall, Sutton was very pleased with how the cafeteria managers, principals and staff handled the peanut situation. “It was a lot of work ... but then again, that’s our job,” he said. Meade County schools try to accommodate other food allergies, but parents need to notify the school. “If there is something we need to address for students, we will do it,” Sutton said. “We will make whatever accommodations necessary.” Food allergies don’t fall under an IEP or a 504 Plan, instead the student’s safety alone is taken into consideration, Sutton said. Other types of help are offered through the Youth Services Programs at each

of the district schools. Their main goal is to accommodate those students who are more introverted and aren’t as involved. They try to bring out the students’ personality to make them feel more comfortable by offering one-on-one attention and through specialized programs. At the end of the day, the main goal of Meade County school officials is to bring out the fullest potential in every student, special needs or not. “Our goal is to get them back in the regular classroom with their peers,” Mitcham said. “We try to do everything we can to help them feel normal and make them feel part of the regular flow,” Sutton said. Part two of the six part school series will be in next week’s issue of The News Standard.

Severe Thunderstorm Safety Tips *** Before Lightning Strikes *** Keep an eye on the sky. Look for darkening skies, flashes of light, or increasing wind. Listen for the sound of thunder. If you can hear thunder, you are close enough to the storm to be struck by lightning. Go to safe shelter immediately. Listen to NOAA Weather Radio, commercial radio, or television for the latest weather forecasts. *** When a Storm Approaches *** Find shelter in a building or car. Keep car windows closed and avoid convertibles. Telephone lines and metal pipes can conduct electricity. Unplug appliances. Avoid using the telephone or any electrical appliances. (Leaving electric lights on, however, does not increase the chances of your home being struck by lightning.) Avoid taking a bath or shower, or running water for any other purpose. Turn off the air conditioner. Power surges from lightning can overload the compressor, resulting in a costly repair job! Draw blinds and shades over windows. If windows break due to objects blown by the wind, the shades will prevent glass from shattering into your home.

incredibly serious matters on a daily basis,” she added. “The fun we have here is really poked more at ourselves and our camaraderie than anything else. The subject matter is

serious and what we hope to do with these trials is to give the public a glimpse into the legal system as well as take some public comment and ideas away from those who attend.”

*** If Caught Outside *** If you are in the woods, take shelter under the shorter trees. If you are boating or swimming, get to land and find shelter immediately! *** Protecting Yourself Outside *** Go to a low-lying, open place away from trees, poles, or metal objects. Make sure the place you pick is not subject to flooding. Be a very small target! Squat low to the ground. Place your hands on your knees with your head between them. Make yourself the smallest target possible. Do not lie flat on the ground!! This will make you a larger target! *** After the Storm Passes *** Stay away from storm-damaged areas. Listen to the radio for information and instructions. *** If Someone is Struck by Lightning *** People struck by lightning carry no electrical charge and can be handled safely. Call for help. Get someone to dial 9-1-1 or your local Emergency Medical Services (EMS) number. The injured person has received an electrical shock and may be burned, both where they were struck and where the electricity left their body. Check for burns in both places. Being struck by lightning can also cause nervous system damage, broken bones, and loss of hearing or eyesight. Give first aid. If breathing has stopped, begin rescue breathing. If the heart has stopped beating, a trained person should give CPR. If the person has a pulse and is breathing, look and care for other possible injuries. Learn first aid and CPR by taking a Red Cross first aid and CPR course. Call your local Red Cross chapter for class schedules and fees.

NEWS Kentucky’s jobless rate drops to 10 percent in June

Friday, July 30, 2010

A8 - The News Standard

Submitted by Education and Workforce Development Cabinet

Kentucky’s seasonally adjusted preliminary unemployment rate fell to 10 percent in June 2010, the lowest rate in 16 months, according to the Office of Employment and Training (OET), an agency of the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet. The revised rate in May 2010 was 10.4 percent. The June 2010 jobless rate is .8 percentage points lower than the 10.8 percent rate recorded inJune 2009 for the state.

The 10 percent rate recorded in June 2010 is the lowest unemployment rate recorded since February 2009 when the rate was 9.6 percent. “The decrease in Kentucky’s unemployment rate in June 2010 is driven by a decline in the civilian labor force. Individuals who have faced long-term unemployment are becoming discouraged and dropping out of the labor force,” OET chief labor market analyst Dr. Justine Detzel said The U.S. seasonally adjusted jobless rate decreased from 9.7 percent in May 2010 to 9.5 percent

in June 2010, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Unemployment statistics are based on estimates and are compiled to measure trends rather than actually to count people working. Seven of the 11 major nonfarm North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) job sectors reported an employment increase in June 2010, while four decreased, according to OET. An increase of 6,200 jobs in June 2010 brought Kentucky’s nonfarm employment to a seasonally adjusted total of 1,788,700.

This represents the fourth consecutive month of job gains and the highest level of nonfarm employment since January 2009, when total nonfarm employment was recorded at 1,796,400. “Since June 2009, Kentucky’s nonfarm employment has expanded by 26,500 professionals. This marks the second month in a row of year-over-year increases in nonfarm employment. Prior to this, Kentucky suffered 26 consecutive months of yearover-year employment losses,” Detzel said. According to the season-

ally adjusted employment data, the manufacturing sector jobs surged by 2,700 in June 2010. Since June 2009, employment in the manufacturing sector has grown by 4,800 positions. “This represents the second month in a row of a year-over-year advance in manufacturing jobs,” Detzel said. “The lion’s share of the growth since last June occurred in the durable goods subsector, which is indicative of automobile manufacturers increasing production and automobile parts plants calling

back workers, as well as expansions at various durable goods manufacturers. In addition, the nondurable goods subsector added 1,100 professionals in the last year,” she said. Kentucky’s leisure and hospitality sector climbed by 2,100 jobs in June 2010. Since June 2009, employment in the sector has increased by 1,400 positions. The leisure and hospitality sector includes arts, entertainment and recreation, accommodations and food services and drinking places industries.

law, but authorizes the fine to be doubled when violations target or hurt those who are 60 or older. “Seniors are the No. 1 target for investment fraud, and this abuse cannot be tolerated,” said DFI Securities Division Director Shonita Bossier. “By making the fines more substantial for securities fraud against seniors, we hope to deter these violations from taking place. When violations are found, the fines will be used to help the department prevent future abuses against seniors and the investing public.” To further that purpose, the bill establishes a securities fraud prosecution and prevention fund where

fines can be deposited. The funds can be used to assist in criminal prosecution of fraud, for training and equipment related to prevention, detection and investigation of securities fraud, and for investor education. In addition to issuing licenses and registrations to securities individuals and firms and conducting examinations, DFI’s Securities Division also investigates complaints and provides educational outreach. Investors are encouraged to call DFI at 800-223-2579 to make sure the investment and person selling it are licensed or registered in Kentucky.

Investors can also call to ask about the complaint history of a broker or investment adviser, to file a complaint or to report suspected fraud. For more information on how to save, invest and avoid fraud, visit

DFI is an agency in the Public Protection Cabinet. It supervises the financial services industry by examining, chartering, licensing and registering various financial institutions, securities firms and professionals operating in Kentucky. DFI’s mission is to

serve Kentucky residents and protect their financial interests by maintaining a stable financial industry, continuing effective and efficient regulatory oversight, promoting consumer confidence, and encouraging economic opportunities.

New law enhances penalties for investment fraud against seniors

Submitted by the Kentucky Public Protection Cabinet Investment scams that target senior citizens are now subject to more strict penalties as Senate Bill 130 takes effect today. Sen. Tom Buford sponsored the Kentucky Department of Financial Institution’s (DFI) legislation that passed during the 2010 General Assembly. The bill was primarily a housekeeping measure to better organize and clarify the existing statute governing securities. However, one section enhances public protection for seniors. The bill sets fine limits of $20,000 per violation of the securities

Food From page A1 cheaper during summer months, reported increases this year as well. Idaho potatoes, which cost $3.58 per ten pounds in March, rose to $4.18 in June — an increase of 16.8 percent. In stark contrast, the price of tomatoes fell 33.6 percent from $2.03 per pound in March to $1.52 in June. Overall, the fruits and vegetables category saw the sharpest decline, averaging a price drop of 2.6 percent. According to Meade County extension agent Jennifer Bridge, locally grown summer produce

Chicken From page A1 teenaged girls are on the radar. The girls were seen by Oaks and poultry and rabbit superintendents Randall Hardesty and Liz Bell. Hardesty and Bell are somewhat convinced that the suspected girls seen around the cage played a role in the chickens’ disappearance. “I did see them taking pictures of them with their cell phones,” Hardesty said. However, the girls’ actions weren’t closely scrutinized because they don’t usually have to worry about people admiring the chickens, but more so the rabbits. “We’ve had a problem

Rezone From page A1 R-1 zoning allows only single-family residents on a large lot. Should the property be zoned R-2, it would allow either single or two family homes on smaller lots. Rena Singleton, the developer of the seven-acre property, had requested the change in order to use smaller size lots. “It’s because of the way the land lays in different areas, some of it is going to be pie-shaped,” Singleton told the commission. “If we could have the smaller

could be a factor in higher grocery store produce costs. “We have such an abundance of fresh produce available with people having gardens this time of year and the farmer ’s markets,” Bridge said. Food packaging could also be a culprit in rising food costs, she added. “We’ve long looked at packaging and how much packaging costs,” Bridge said. The Kentucky Farm Bureau has conducted the survey for nearly 40 years to reflect retail food pricing trends and their relationship to what farmers receive for raw commodities. The average farmer ’s share of the retail food dollar is close to 19 cents, according to the release.

Food prices in Kentucky have risen since earlier in the year.

with teen girls wanting to pet the rabbits and hold the rabbits, but nothing like this. This is a weird one,” Bell said. Oaks has reluctantly given up hope for his chickens’ return unless conscientious people intervene. “In my opinion, there’s nothing you’re going to do. You’re not going to be able to find them. Somebody’s going to have to turn them in,” he said. The pair, which was the first pair of Old English bantams Oaks has owned, were given to him by a man who he had grown close to this spring — the man who introduced him to the world of showing chickens. “He showed me the ins and outs of the showing business,” he said. “It’s not as easy as just sticking a chicken in a cage.”

That same man died in a house fire nearly a month ago. “The value of those chickens is where they came from. It’s sentimental, not monetary,” Oaks said. “ I can’t call up John and say ‘Somebody stole that pair, do you have another pair you can give me?’” Though unpleasant, it is not uncommon for animals to be stolen at shows, according to Hardesty. “If they catch you with your back turned, they’ll do it if they’re going to do it. If they’re going to get them, they’re going to get them,” Hardesty said, who had a turkey stolen at the state fair several years ago. He admitted that there is very little that can be done to stop thefts. “If there was a solution to stop this, there would

be a way to stop all thefts,” Hardesty said. However, he acknowledged that an option would be to put up surveillance cameras in the barn. “That’s about the only idea I can come up with that would work,” Hardesty said. “I may bring it up to David (Pace) and (the board) and see what they think about it.” Though dismayed by the situation, Oaks harbors no ill feelings toward the fair board, and feels the actions of the bantam bandits affects more than just him. “I can’t blame the fair board. I can’t be mad at Randall and Liz,” Oaks said. “Both of them are as upset as I am. It makes the whole Meade County Fair chicken show look bad. It puts a damper on the whole thing.”

lots, it would be easier.” She rebutted the concerns of other residents that she would build anything but single-family residences. “I, no way, have considered duplexes,” she said. “These will all be singlefamily houses for sale.” Singleton said she would have no objection to having restrictions placed upon the property; however, Planning and Zoning Administrator Lee Klockow said that until the property was submitted as a proper subdivision, the commission had no power to impose those types of rules on the property. Resident Mark Gossett expressed concerns that

once the property was rezoned to R-2, Singleton could give no assurances what would happen to the property in the future, especially in the case of her selling the land to someone else. “That’s true,” Singleton replied. “I can’t vouch for what someone else (would do).” Gossett said if the houses are going to be single-family, there was no reason to change the zoning. “(If leaving it R-1) cuts out three or four lots, that’s probably better,” he added. Commissioners comments suggested that although the rezoning met the requirements of the

comprehensive plan, the rejection came as a result of half of the adjacent residents expressing disapproval and a lack of projected positive economic or physical development resulting because of the development. Despite the commission’s vote, the matter remains unresolved. Action taken Tuesday night only serves as a recommendation to Brandenburg City Council who can vote to accept the recommendation or overturn it. Should council accept the recommendation for denial, the property owner could still take the matter to the Board of Appeals.

U.S. plays major role in world’s corn supply Submitted by the U.S. Grains Council U.S. agriculture exports are projected to be secondlargest on record and surpass $100 billion dollars this year, second only to 2008 when agriculture exports surpassed $110 billion, Joseph Glauber, chief economist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, told attendees of the U.S. Grains Council’s 50th Annual Board of Delegates Meeting. “It’s a very big market,” he said. The exchange rate is positive for U.S. exports, Glauber said, as the dollar versus export competitors’ currencies is favorable — and certainly better than the 2000-2003 period. He also referenced IMF data that showed the United States and Euro zone economies contracted in 2009 but recovering and turning positive this year and in 2011. Glauber said there remains some question over how quickly the economic recovery will move forward — or whether it will falter. While sluggish growth continues in developed countries, developing countries like China and India are growing at a high clip. “We hope that continues … we need those

economies to be strong,” he said. While reviewing the status of the corn crop and how much of that crop goes to ethanol production, Glauber said it is important to realize that “we had a big transition” with the phase out of MTBE and a rapid increase of ethanol production from 2006 to 2008. “The growth rate has tailed off a lot,” he said, and increases won’t be as large in the future as those seen during that period. As the corn ethanol industry gets closer to a production capacity of 15 billion gallons — the threshold spelled out in the Renewable Fuels Standard — the growth of corn going to ethanol will slow down even further, he said, although there may be potential for corn ethanol to move beyond that 15 billion gallon limit. That depends on other factors, however, including corn ethanol being designated as an advanced biofuel and the ability of ethanol to get past a blend wall, which it is reaching already. A new slate of officers and Board of Directors were elected at the U.S. Grains Council’s 50th Annual Board of Delegates Meeting.

Terry Vinduska, a corn farmer representing the Kansas Corn Commission, was elected chairman for the 2010-2011 fiscal year. A native of Kansas, Vinduska graduated with honors from Kansas State University in 1972 with a bachelor ’s degree in agriculture. He’s had a varied career in agriculture since that time. He worked for Hesston Corporation in field test engineering before returning to the family farm. He currently grows corn, sorghum, soybeans and wheat and is vicepresident of S and V Family Farms LLC. Vinduska also serves as a sales representative for Pioneer HiBred International Inc. Vinduska served on the USGC Rest of the World Advisory Team (A-Team) and was the Board liaison to the Biotech and Asia ATeams. He also served as part of the Structure Task Force, the Funding Task Force and numerous other committees within the Council. He takes over the role of chairman as Rick Fruth, a farmer from Ohio representing the Ohio Corn Marketing Program, transitions into the past chairman position.

Thomas C. Dorr, USGC president and CEO, said, “As the U.S. Grains Council begins its 51st year, we are fortunate to have strong, active leadership in place. Our new chairman, Mr. Vinduska, the Board of Directors, Board of Delegates, A-Team leaders and state liaisons provide excellent insight into the challenges and opportunities in the international market arena. The Council’s success over its first five decades is attributable to a long tradition of farmer and agribusiness leadership that’s determined to see the Council succeed.” Other officers elected include Wendell Shauman, representing Illinois Corn Marketing Board, as vice chairman; Don Fast, representing Montana Wheat & Barley Committee, as treasurer; and Julius Schaaf, representing Iowa Corn Promotion Board, as secretary. Alan Tiemann, of the Nebraska Corn Board, was re-elected to the Council’s Board of Directors. Newly elected Board members include James Tobin of Monsanto; Bill Kubecka of United Sorghum Checkoff Program; and Jere White of Kansas Corn Commission.

A10 - The News Standard

By Jennifer Corbett The News Standard Bob Dingus isn’t the kind of guy who likes to sit in an office all day. In fact, he prefers to work out of his car. Dingus is the owner of Bigwrench Mobile Truck Repair, whose mission is to save time and money by bringing his repair shop to his customers. “We kind of bring the shop to different shops, trucking companies or individuals who own trucks,” Dingus said. “It’s kind of a convenience for them.” Bigwrench specializes in helping semi-trucks, dump trucks, tractors, trailers and any type of heavy equipment. The back of his truck holds all the important tools to make sure each truck or trailer gets back to working. Many of those tools he has acquired through the years on the job. “I have whatever I need to do my job,” he said. Bigwrench was launched a few months ago, but Dingus feels that it is already headed down the right path. “Work is a little slow, but I’ve had enough to keep me busy,” he said. “I’ve got a good feeling about it.” Right now, Bigwrench is a two-person team with Dingus’s wife helping out with paperwork and billing. Typically, Dingus takes care of appointments and projects using his car as a miniature office. “Most of the stuff you can schedule,” he said. “Everything comes to me. I deal with things that way … it’s pretty manageable work.” Dingus said he chose larger vehicles instead of working on smaller cars.

“I figured if you stick to one thing you can do better at it,” he said. “I really don’t want to get into cars.”

He began working as a diesel mechanic almost 29 years ago. The idea for a mobile unit sparked when wanted a change of scen-

Online shopping scam noted Submitted by BBB of Kentucky BBB is warning online shoppers about a fraudulent e-mail that appears to be from Scam artists are sending out the e-mails that state, “Thanks for your order.” The e-mail has an order number on it, a total price, and a link to click on to check out your order. A BBB employee recently received one of the e-mails. The employee has never shopped on Amazon, so she became suspicious and called the company. A customer relations manager told her that he had received five calls on it at that time, and that Amazon is investigating the fraudulent email. The manager did not know what would happen if you clicked on the link. The link could be a virus or it could be a phishing attempt (to steal your personal information). Amazon is asking anyone who receives a fraudulent e-mail like this to forward the e-mail to Below are some key points from to help identify e-mails that appear to be from Amazon, but are not: 1. Know what Amazon. com won’t ask for: Ama- will never ask you for the following information in an e-mail: • Your social security number or tax identification number. • Your credit card number, PIN number, or credit card security code. • Your mother ’s maiden name. • Your password. 2. Requests to verify or confirm your account information: will not ask you to verify or confirm your Amazon. com account information by clicking on a link from an e-mail. 3. Attachments on suspicious e-mails: Amazon. com does not send order confirmations or other unsolicited requests that require you to open attachments. 4. Grammatical or typographical errors: Be on the lookout for poor grammar or typographical errors. 5. Check the Web site address: Genuine Amazon. com web sites are always hosted on the “amazon. com” domain — ”http:// . . “ (or “ . .”). Sometimes the link included in spoofed e-mails looks like a genuine address.

You can check where it actually points to by hovering your mouse over the link — the actual Web site where it points to will be shown in the status bar at the bottom of your browser window or as a pop-up. Amazon never uses a web address such as “http://security-amazon. com/. . .” or an IP address (string of numbers) followed by directories such as “http://123.456.789.123/ . . .” 6. Protect your account information: If you did click through from a spoofed or suspicious e-mail and you entered your account information you should immediately update your password. You can do this through “Your Account” by choosing the option to “Change your name, e-mail address, or password” found under “Account Settings.” Contact Amazon immediately if you notice any orders that you do not recognize.. BBB always recommends, if an e-mail looks suspicious, go directly to the Web site, or call the company directly. When in doubt, do not click on a link in an email.

ery. “It’s sort of a niche I thought might fit,” Dingus said. “It keeps things interesting.” One aspect of the job that Dingus enjoys is how one day is completely different from the next. “Last week, I was working out in Louisville for a couple of days, then I was dead for a couple of days,” he added. “You never know. Everyday is different.” Once he starts working on a truck or trailer, Dingus has the same routine to make sure everything gets accounted for. “You’re thinking about what you’re doing,” he said. “You’re always watching out for anything else you see wrong to keep a truck from having a breakdown or problems. You’re saving them money.” The job can also be a bit messy, but Dingus doesn’t mind. “It’s part of the job,” he said.

ABOVE: Bob Dingus, owner of Bigwrench Mobile Truck Repair, stands beside his truck which serves as a mobile office filled with the tools of his trade. LEFT: Dingus’ “office” in the back of his truck.


He can’t see himself doing anything else. “It’s what I’ve always liked to do,” Dingus said. “For the last 29 years, I’ve worked around trucks one way or another.” As for the future, Dingus doesn’t see himself moving into a typical office anytime soon.

AGRICULTURE Cattle show proves to be successful in new show barn

The News Standard - A11

Friday, July 30, 2010

By Casey Tolliver The News Standard Before the rides were set up or the tractor and truck pulls were roaring in the arena, many fairgoers packed the new show barn on Saturday to watch the Beef Breeding show as the fair kicked off last weekend. Typically held on different days and times, the late Saturday afternoon seemed to be just the right time slot for the event, compared to early Saturday morning or weekday start times, according to Beef Show Superintendent Homer Lee Richardson. “I think it worked out well having it on Saturday. We had a lot more participation, and more people showed up having it in the afternoon,” Richardson said. “I felt like we had a good crowd there watching and more cattle there, too.” Despite muggy and tepid conditions, attendance of the show was up from past years, he added. Contestants from Meade and surrounding counties and participants from across the state filed in to the freshly built barn to show off their prized steers and heifers to judges. The influx in numbers meant a wider variety of classes that were shown, Richardson said. “If any breed has at least eight animals, we can give it it’s own category. We had a saler, short horn, seminol and some other than angus and Herefords,” Richardson said, who has been the Beef Show superintendent for nearly 15 years. Typically, the beef show consists of angus, Hereford, short horn and a general All Other Breeds category, but the added participation led to an expansion of categories. Richardson, who shares the superintendent role with his wife, Kaye, has been involved with the fair for most of his life. “We’ve always participated in the fair,” he said. “My dad used to be on the fair board, and now my brother is on the fair board.” As a longstanding participant of the fair, Richardson has noticed a linear involvement in the beef shows in Meade County, which was evident based on the amount of Meade County youths who exhibited and fared well in the show. According to Richardson, Cody Haught, Kaylee Compton, Lydia Richardson, Taylor Hobbs and Gracie Fackler were among the surge of Meade County youths competing. “Most of them are the kids showing,” Richardson said. “And we had more kids showing than we usually did. I always like to see the kids participate. That’s one thing I like about the fair, is you get to see the kids getting out and competing in things.”

Corey Lindsey (right) poses with Miss Meade County Fair Cindy Padgett after winning the demolition derby.

The 2010 Meade County Fair Demolition Derby winner, Corey Lindsey, of Brandenburg, had quite the fitting name for his car: 2Tall. “That’s what everyone calls me,” Lindsey said who stands head and shoulders above all his opponents. “They told me to put it on my car last year. The 6-foot-5 Brandenburg resident looked strong throughout the night of twisted metal. He came out of the first round with very little dings on his car, however he lost power steering. “That wore me out,” Lindsey said, who won his first ever demolition derby. “It was really hard when you get hit in the wheels. It was just really hard to turn. With power steering

it’s easy to turn the wheel. But without it, it will break your hands.” During the finals, Lindsay cranked the wheel fiercely while sweating in the hot night, which reached a heat index into triple digits. “It was hot out,” Lindsey said. “It wears on you.” Despite the heat and the loss of power steering, Lindsey was still self-confident of his car. “I had pretty good confidence when I came into tonight,” he said. “I knew I had a good car. I also knew there were a lot of good cars I was going to have to beat. It was a challenge.” This is the first demolition derby Lindsey has won in five years of competition. Last year during the fair he made it to the feature event, See DEMO, page B2

The 8-year-old Ball Hawgs keep wrangling in tournament championships and World Series By Ben Achtabowski The News Standard More than a year ago, Little League coaches Jason Lee, Clint Hiner, Brian Collin and Steven Waters formed an elite

group of 7-year-old baseball players from around the area. Though they knew they had a special team, they didn’t realize they would have such a dominate team. “Everyone was playing in their Little League all-star teams and there were some

good players,” Lee said of the team that is made up of players from Meade County, Breckinridge County and Rineyville, Ky. “We thought how about we get the best of See HAWGS, page B2

Paws Corner By Sam Mazzotta Dog’s Marking Doesn’t Do Deck Any Favors DEAR PAW’S CORNER: I have two 2-year-old neutered canine brothers (I found out after the fact that it is not a good idea to get them from the same litter). They have lots of forested room to roam, but “Jake” (the dominant one) occasionally insists on peeing on the deck. I can’t catch him at it. Why does he do that, and how can I get him to stop? - Carolyn V., via e-mail DEAR CAROLYN: That can be tough to stop, since the deck is often considered part of the family living area for everyone, including the dogs. You’ll need to regain control of the deck area and remind Jake who’s boss. Whenever the dogs are off-leash, roaming through the yard and woods, block access to the deck and don’t allow them on until you have called them up the steps and clipped a leash on Jake and his brother. You may want to have a second person leash the less-dominant dog. Jake may, at this time, attempt to tug himself over to his usual marking spot, and drag you with him. Give him a firm “no” and order him to sit and stay. At this time you can take his brother inside the house while you work with Jake. For the next several days or weeks, the deck is going to become Training Central. Work with Jake and his brother, separately. Whenever Jake begins to sniff around or tries to mark something, firmly tell him “no” and continue giving him basic obedience commands. When he follows your commands, and especially when he stops sniffing and obeys rather than tries to mark, give him lots of praise and treats (if you choose). To further discourage marking, clean the areas he has marked and treat with an odor neutralizer. Send your pet questions and tips to, or write to Paw’s Corner, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Find more pet advice and resources at www. (c) 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.

Celebrity Extra By Cindy Elavsky

Q: I can’t believe Melina Kanakaredes is leaving my favorite show, “CSI: NY.” Who will they get to replace her? - Maggie F., Portland, Maine A: After six years, Melina is hanging up her handcuffs, and television vet Sela Ward is stepping in to take her place. “We are delighted to have Sela joining ‘CSI: NY,’” ‘showrunner’ Pam Veasey announced in July. Ward will play an “experienced investigator from Washington, D.C., whose work is driven by her empathy for the victim.”

Dylan McDermott

Q: I am so happy that season two of “Dark Blue” has started back up on TNT. What can we expect for the new season? - George F., via e-mail A: Star Dylan McDermott told me: “We looked at the first season to see what worked and what didn’t work. We decided to make the show a little lighter in tone, added more humor, and the introduction of Alex Rice as my love interest. We’ve opened it up to a wider audience. It’s still gritty and dark, but adding and making changes opened up the show a lot.”

Q: Is it true that Steve Carell is leaving “The Office”? Why? The office will be so empty without him! - David G. in Pennsylvania A: It’s sad, but true. Everyone’s favorite worst boss will be leaving the show when his contract expires in May 2011. He explained to E! Online that he just felt it was time. But don’t worry, as Steve explains: “It certainly doesn’t mean the end of the show. I think it’s just a dynamic change, which could be a good thing, actually. Add some new life and some new energy. I see it as a positive in general for the show.” Some good news on the casting front, though, is the return of Amy Ryan as Holly for eight episodes, as well as Melora Hardin as Jan (no word as of yet on how many episodes). I can’t wait to see how Michael handles this one. Q: I thought Edward Norton was fabulous as Bruce Banner in “The Incredible Hulk.” Why won’t he reprise his role in Marvel’s “The Avengers”? - Jason J., via e-mail A: The usually private actor recently took to his official Facebook page to discount any rumors that might start swirling because he won’t be the Hulk in “The Avengers.” According to his statement, Marvel did extend the offer for Edward to reprise his role in the new movie, however, he didn’t go into detail as to why the negotiations broke down. He did state: “It seems it won’t work out for me to continue playing Bruce Banner for Marvel in ‘The Avengers.’ I sincerely hoped it could happen and be great for everyone, but it hasn’t turned out as we all hoped. But I am very sincerely grateful to Marvel for extending the offer.” Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Last Week’s Solutions

•According to Henry Heimlich, the inventor of the abdominal thrust technique known as the Heimlich Maneuver, the food upon which people most commonly choke is peanut butter straight out of the jar. •Astronauts on the International Space Station see the sun rise every 90 minutes. •You’ve probably heard that Eskimos have 50 words for different types of snow, but you might not realize that their language doesn’t have a word for just plain snow. •Those who study such things say that every day in the world, 62 square miles of land becomes desert. •When groups of shrimp end up with too few males to sustain the population, some of the females turn into males. •Michael Crichton is best known as an author and screenwriter, and most of his fans are aware of the fact that he was a medical doctor, as well. It’s interesting to note, however, that as an undergraduate student he majored in anthropology. •If you’re like 80 percent of Americans, you will experience some kind of back trouble at least once in your lifetime. •Businesswoman Mary Kay Ash, before she founded the Mary Kay Cosmetics empire, sold encyclopedias door-to-door. •Thought for the Day: “To err is human, but to really foul things up you need a computer.” -- Paul Ehrlich (c) 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Avoid adding to the tension around you. Even a well-meant reaction against something you perceive as unfair could be misunderstood. Let things calm down, and then talk about it. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) It’s a good time for romance for unattached Bovines, and a good time for reinforcing the bonds between partners. Children’s needs are important during the latter part of the week. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A compliment from a surprising source sends you wafting way up into the clouds, where -- sorry to say -- your view of what’s going on is obscured. Come on down and face some reality. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Even a family-loving person like you sometimes can feel you’re at the end of the line with contentious kinfolk. But things can work out. Remember that it’s better to talk than walk. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A jobrelated move might hold more positive surprises than you’d expected. Go into it with confidence, and look for all the advantages it offers. Then decide what you’ll do with what you find. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Driving yourself too hard to get something done on a deadline you set up can backfire. Ease into a more realistic finish date, and add more breaks to your work schedule. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your sense of humor can brighten any dark period, and your laughter can dispel those gray clouds swirling around you. The weekend presents a surprising but welcome change. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Be careful about the words you use, especially in touchy situations. The old Chinese saying that the spoken word is silver, but the unspoken gold could well apply here. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Some facts could emerge to shed light on unresolved past problems. What you learn also might help explain why a oncewarm relationship suddenly cooled down. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Don’t let your pride get in the way of checking into what could be a great new opportunity. Get the facts first, and worry about procedure and protocol later. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A health problem in the family might have other relatives assuming that, as before, you’ll take over the health-care duties. Surprise them and insist they share in the care taking. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A series of changes can be unsettling, but in the long run, it can pay off with new perspectives on what you plan to do. Keep your mind open to the possibilities that might well lie ahead. BORN THIS WEEK: You might be under a “royal” sign, but you have a wonderful way of embracing everyone as an equal.

Meade teens claim bass fishing world championship Submitted by Frank Raymer and Bass Federation Jared Raymer and Ethan Snyder, from Meade County High School, sealed the deal July 24 with a sweet victory on the finale of the inaugural 2010 High School Fishing World Finals on Lake Dardanelle in Arkansas. Both walked away with $4,000 a year, renewable for four years, scholarships totaling $16,000 a piece or $32,000 from Bethel University, spots on the Bethel University Varsity Fishing team, $500 Cabelas gift cards, new Compaq laptops, a Berkley Prize Package including a Revo Reel and 30 percent Pure Fishing on the TBF Web site, plus some heavy jewelry. The weights were zeroed for the final day of competition, making the playing field level and the weighin intense. Raymer and Synder were the last to the stage. With only the team from North Canyon High School in their way, the Meade County team excited the crowd and themselves as the scale read 16 pounds 2 ounces, pulling them ahead by 2 pounds to win it. Raymer and Snyder earned the right to be called champions and did so with class. Throughout the event these anglers displayed consistency, determination and sportsmanship at every corner. In the end, their teamwork paid off. “We found this one grass mat that held our fish the whole week,” Raymer said. “We were throwing a strike king with a Rage Shad on it and we lived and died by the sword on that spot. If there were no fish there we would have

been in trouble all week.” “Yeah, we just circled around, circled around, circled around,” Snyder added. They proved to be consistent in their improvements each day. Day one with three fish, day two with four, and the final day, with five fish, both anglers stuck to their topwater pattern and never gave up. “It just got better every day because we dialed in on what we needed to be doing,” Snyder said. “It’s actually funny because we came into this event thinking a swim jig was what was going to work for us, and half way through the first day we just randomly tried out that Rage Shad; we had never thrown the bait in our lives,” Raymer said. “It

paid out big for us.” The winning team was not the only team who won big; the remaining top six teams did not leave home empty-handed. The second place finishers, Thomas Chambers and Brandon Koon of North Canyon High School, caught five fish weighing 14 pounds 8 ounces and were awarded trophies, $300 Cabela’s gift cards, mini laptops and a Berkley Package including a Revo Reel and 30 percent Pure Fishing on TBF web. The third place team was Sawyer Grace and Austen Cathcart of Russellville High School. They caught five fish weighing 12 pounds 3 ounces and received trophies, $200 Cabela’s gift cards, Flat Screen HD TVs and a Berkley

Package including a Revo Reel and 30% of Pure Fishing on TBF web. In fourth, the team from Dover High School, Austin Moody and Aimee Cresswell with four fish weighing 10 pounds 14 ounces. They received $200 Cabela’s gift cards, two WII’s and Berkley’s Prize Package. In fifth, Jonny Schultz and Thomas Rose, Jr. from Episcopal Collegiate High School had three fish weighing 8 pounds 5 ounces. They received $150 Cabela’s gift

cards two Ipod touches and the Berkley Prize Package. Sam Starr and Brady Sherman from McPherson High School came in sixth and received $100 Cabela’s gift cards, two portable DVD Players and the Berkley Prize Package. In seventh, was the team from Farragut High School who received $50 Cabela’s gift cards, two Ipod Shuffles and the Berkley Prize Package. In addition to the top seven’s winnings, one lucky

member of the crowd won a $1,000 Cabela’s gift card by entering his name in a drawing we advertised all week and a TBF high school fishing member also won a Wii from winning a dance/ surfboard competition we had at the Friday night Celebration Party. There were many opportunities to win prizes and several of the high school anglers went home with tons of merchandise, and hopefully a week they will remember for the rest of their lives.

2010 Meade County Greenwave Band

Lewis and Wanda Shacklette

Meade County natives Lewis and Wanda Shacklette celebrated their 78th and 69th birthdays Saturday night poolside at their daughter, Lisa Shacklette Del Valle’s, home in Ormond Beach , Fla. The party had a luau theme with women dressed in grass skirts and everyone wearing leis. Those attending took turns in the hula-hoop contest, while many longtime friends and family reminisced with the guests of honor. The youth attending the event took turns in the pool and Del Valle pulled out all of the stops with a tiki bar and Hawaiian-style cuisine at the buffet line. Lewis was born in Meade County and lived 40 of his 78 years here, while Wanda was born in Valley Station, Ky., and was a resident of Meade County for more than two decades. While both have hundreds of family in the area and still visit frequently they are spending their retirement years in Ormond, Fla., just north of Daytona Beach, Fla. Lewis still actively rides his Harley-Davidson and Wanda is very involved with their properties and grandchildren. They share the same birthday, July 26, but this year’s birthday was celebrated two days early. Among those attending included the Shacklettes’ grandsons, Brandon and Antonio Del Valle, Carter and Chandler Shacklette, their son-in-law, Rafael Del Valle, daughter-in-law, Christy Shacklette, son, Buddy Shacklette and Lewis’ sister, Sue Shacklette Cummings.
