Arch Chemicals receives grant to expedite energy efficiency By Casey Tolliver The News Standard A local company is the recipient of a $450,000 grant funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) according to a press release from Gov Steve Beshear ’s office last week . Arch Chemicals Inc, in Brandenburg, is one of three companies splitting the $3.5 million federal subsidies that were available. The award was announced

in a press release from Gov. Steve Beshear ’s office. “Reduced energy consumption is critical in today’s economy,” Beshear said in the release. “I am committed to reducing energy costs within state government, and I am pleased that government can partner with private industry through ARRA funding to spur energy efficiency gains. The industrial facility retrofit projects undertaken as a result of these grant

awards will serve as an example of the energy efficiency improvements that can be realized in the private sector. Not only will the companies save money on energy costs, but the environment will benefit as well from reduced emissions.” Arch Chemicals was one of thirteen firms submitting proposals to receive a cut of the funding. The proposals were judged and selected based on criteria in-

cluding jobs created, focus on “green” jobs and the amount of energy saved per grant dollar invested. The Cabinet for Economic Development administered the proposal process The grant was created to simultaneously expedite energy efficiency industrial projects related to renewable energy while conserving energy and reducing carbon emissions.

Small businesses to receive health care tax credit boost By Casey Tolliver The News Standard

Meager health benefits for small businesses will get a booster shot after provisions in the federal health care reform bill are set to soften the blow of rising cost for Kentucky small business owners and their employees, according to a recent study published by Families USA and Small Business Majority. Whether owners are supportive or opposed to the health care reform, local small businesses such as Brandenburg Pharmacy will feel the benefits of the tax credits. See HEALTH, Page A7

Meade Co. homemade dishes make the taste buds jump By Jennifer Corbett The News Standard Add a dash of Farmer’s Market, a sprinkle of homemade dishes and bake at 350 degrees — in the end, it will equal to a night dubbed ‘A Taste of Meade County.’ The event, held last Friday at the Extension Office, showcased locally grown fruits and vegetables that equaled to some pretty tasty meals. The event, sponsored by the Meade County Homemakers, brought in over 200 people who left with their bellies full. “We had a very good turnout,” said Marilyn Craycroft, committee chairperson for the event. “It’s almost double what we anticipated,” added Jennifer Bridge, county See HOMEMADE, Page A2

City employee stress toying with public fire hydrants is no joke By Jennifer Corbett The News Standard

Public Works Director T.J. Hughes addressed the issue of an unknown person randomly leaving fire hydrants on at the Brandenburg City Council meeting Monday, August 9. “It’s been occurring around three weeks,” Hughes said, adding that since some of the hydrants ran for days the city is steadily loosing money with the amount of water that has been lost. According to Hughes, four different fire hydrants have been apart of the issue — on Old Ekron Road in front of The News Standard, in front of Myers Concrete Products, on Riverport/ HWY 933 and See FIRE, Page A7

Fort Knox unit participates in dignified funeral honors for vets Submitted by Fort Knox Public Affairs Office FORT KNOX — Members of Fort Knox’s 3rd Sustainment Command (Expeditionary) and 233rd Transportation Company recently provided funeral honors in the states of Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan and a portion of West Virginia. The soldiers’ participation from July 26 — August 9 provided dignified military funeral honors to departed veterans. Led by Master Sgt. Cornelius Smith, the funeral honors detail sought to bring comfort to families affected by the death of a loved one. “Our teams with the 3d ESC and 233rd were responsible for providing proper military funeral honors to

veterans in our areas of responsibility,” Smith said, a Greeleyville, S.C. native and supply and services noncommissioned officer with the 3rd ESC. “This detail was a great way to honor veterans who have served in our ranks.” The soldiers began their initial funeral honors training on June 21, in which they learned the proper etiquettes and movements required to perform during a military funeral. This included the soldiers learning where to stand during a ceremony, and the proper way to fold the American flag. Smith also mentioned that the soldiers received training to teach them how to deal with family members during their time of grief. For the two units, the funeral detail consisted of 30

two-person teams, with 13 soldiers from the 3rd ESC and 17 from the 233rd Trans. Co. The teams were on call 24 hours a day, including weekends. Each team consisted of a noncommissioned officer and a junior enlisted soldier. During the ceremony, one soldier was responsible for presenting an American flag to a veteran’s family member while the other soldier was responsible for the playing of taps. Overall, 1st Sgt. Jonathan Napier, a Yatesville, Ga., native and headquarters and headquarters company first sergeant with the 3rd ESC, said he was very pleased with the detail’s performance. “What better way to pay tribute to our fallen veterans than to honor them in this

manner. This truly speaks volumes to the levels in which our soldiers perform on a daily basis.” While performing during the ceremony, each soldier was graded on his/her performance by the ceremony’s funeral director. Smith said it made him proud to know that all of the 3rd ESC’s and 233rd Trans. Co. teams received excellent reviews as well as many personal comments. “We did honors once during our recent cycle and I received a phone call afterwards from a retired sergeant major that was part of the family, complementing our soldiers work,” Smith said. “That type of compliment made the whole funeral honors detail worthwhile for myself and the soldiers.”

The food was served on a U-shaped table with portions showcasing 14 different recipes developed by human nutrition students at the University of Kentucky and Family and Consumer Science Agents around the state. According to Bridge, this is an ongoing project with the UK students and they will most likely continue to create recipes in the future. Some of the dishes at “A Taste of Meade County” included: country ham pot pie, blackberry lemon upside cake, cornmeal griddle cakes, baked apples and sweet potatoes and watermelon tomato salad. Andy Mills, county extension agent for agriculture and natural resources, even added his own touch with smoked pork. The homemakers have held a tasting event for the past five years, Bridge said. Craycroft added that beforehand, the homemakers have used recipes from their homemaker cookbooks. She noted that this is the first time they have also incorporated the Farmer’s Market. Profits from “A Taste of Meade County” will help homemaker projects that benefit the community. Overall, Craycroft said the event was a huge accomplishment and the homemakers are planning to do an event similar to this next year. “I felt like the event was a big success,”

Thank You,

Randall Hardesty 6th District Magistrate she said. “Without the homemakers hard work, we wouldn’t have been able to have the event.” Contributions to the night were made by several local farms and

businesses. Other sponsors for the night included Meade County Extension Office, Meade County Farmer’s Market and Kentucky Department of Agriculture.

Festival From page A1 Battletown, Flaherty, Muldraugh and David T. Wilson Elementary schools, toured the grounds and learned of Native American culture in an entertaining environment. Students cycled through exhibits and performances such as Native American flutist Jeff Hatmaker and performers “Skyhawk”, as well as dancers decked out in authentic Native American regalia. On Saturday, the festivities restarted with a presentation of colors by the Ohio Valley Native American Veterans Warrior Society. Local residents were able to observe demonstrations and interact with performers. Whether or not the festivities will return to Brandenburg next year hinges on the success of this year’s event. Although attendance numbers are still being crunched, the likelihood of a repeat performance next year seems favorable, according to Cundiff.

“Who’s On First?”

Better education results would be radical Jim Waters Bluegrass Beacon Voters won’t choose Kentucky’s next governor until November 2011, but the campaign’s already underway. Right now, the odds-on favorite remains incumbent Gov. Steve Beshear. Money talks, and he has a lot of it. Beshear likely will avoid offering controversial solutions to the commonwealth’s most pressing problems. Plus, unless there’s major scandal, Kentucky voters have short memories. So the sting of Beshear’s disastrous, riskfree performance during this year’s budget session in Frankfort likely will have worn off. It’s unknown how much the TEA Party’s aggressive agenda against government growth, overspending and failure — primarily at the national level — will impact state races. If the movement continues its present momentum, then big-government liberals such as Beshear and much of the Louisville contingency in the legislature could be in for a fight.

Rich Lowry National Review New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is some sort of bigot. In a speech about the ground zero mosque and religious freedom, Bloomberg stipulated that “it is fair to ask the organizers of the mosque to show some special sensitivity to the situation.” Why do they, of all the sects represented in New York, have to show “special sensitivity”? Does the mayor demand “special sensitivity” of St. Paul’s Church, the Episcopal parish a few blocks from Ground Zero? And who appointed him arbiter of “special sensitivity”? The mayor unloosed a self-righteous oration about how critics of the project are disgracing the memory of firefighters who died in 9/11, among other offenses

through the eighth grade since the 1990 Kentucky Education Reform Act did not achieve proficiency in math skills needed for success. • This means those students will struggle if or when they try to further their education. • That is why only one out of four Kentuckians has a two- or four-year college degree. • That means that every year Kentucky fails to improve its education system, its students move closer to the precipice of a failing economic future. “The jobs of the future are not going to be the jobs of your father,” Education Commissioner Terry Holliday recently told the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. Holliday, citing a Georgetown University report, said Kentucky is on the way to becoming a “third-tier state,” meaning the jobs available when the economy recovers will not be the high-paying jobs seen in other states or countries with an educated workforce. “If we don’t have the high-paying jobs in Kentucky employment, that impacts the economy,” Holliday said.

But breaking through to voters on this issue requires offering viable solutions – a tough task considering staunch defenders of the status quo, including teacher unions and their legislative pals, have developed a real talent for making failure sound good and sound policy appear extreme. For example, despite the fact that charter schools have thrived for 20 years and have grown to 5,000 strong with an enrollment of 1.5 million students nationwide, teacher union boss Sharron Oxendine referred to them as a “new radical idea” on a recent “Kentucky Tonight” program. The best evidence suggests that low-performing students who remain in charters begin to outperform their traditional public-school peers after three years. This is nothing short of impressive, considering many of these children are minority, low-income students who arrive at charter schools already far behind. Admittedly, such improved educational results would be a “radical” change for many Kentucky schools and students. Jim Waters is vice president of policy and communications for the Bluegrass Institute, Kentucky’s free-market think tank.

and victims of 9/11 can’t be discounted. When the AntiDefamation League bravely bucked elite opinion to oppose the project, its national director, Abe Foxman, made an illuminating comparison with a Carmelite convent established outside Auschwitz in the 1980s. Carmelites were not a cog in Adolf Hitler’s death machine. Survivors of the Holocaust and Jewish groups nonetheless found the Catholic outpost offensive, which was enough for Pope John Paul II to ask the nuns to move. True interfaith bridge-building is made of such forbearance. The organizers of the mosque, in contrast, relish their hot-button address. Feisal Abdul Rauf, the project’s imam, won’t condemn the Palestinian terror group Hamas. Asked about Hamas in a recent radio interview, he said, “Terrorism is a very complex question,” the stock answer of anyone excusing terrorism. “I am a

peace builder,” he explained — so long as peace-building doesn’t require saying a discouraging word about the Palestinian murderers of innocent Jews. Even if Rauf has the best of intentions, a $100 million mosque is an open invitation to Saudi funding. Nina Shea of the Hudson Institute has documented how Saudi materials at American mosques exhort Muslims to spill the blood of infidels and Jews, in interfaith bridge-building Wahhabi-style. If the ground zero project relies on Saudi money, the desert monarchy will have pulled a perverse twofer -- funding the radical version of Islam that created ground zero, then funding the mosque that outraged the families of the victims. No thanks. Good taste and common sense should prevail, or what Mayor Bloomberg, in his surpassing wisdom, calls “special sensitivity.” Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

against truth, justice and the American way. But even he had to admit that there’s something different about building a mosque so close to the site of a horrific, history-changing act of Islamic terrorism. What Bloomberg refuses to see is that those who want to block the mosque are demanding a truly meaningful gesture in “special sensitivity.” Namely, moving it elsewhere. If the founders of the project are as serious about interfaith bridge-building as they say, they’d be delighted to find a less controversial location. Rubbing hurt feelings raw is not an act of understanding. Stoking a religiously charged debate at Ground Zero is not a blow for tolerance. They are provocations, by people who are either witless or understand exactly what they are doing. It is true that Islam as such is not responsible for 9/11, but symbolism and the sensibilities of New Yorkers

Also, the early entrance of charter schools advocate (and former Bluegrass Institute board member) Phil Moffett, a Louisville businessman, offers the possibility of making this campaign about an issue more difficult for voters to overlook or ignore: education. Voters might forget bungled budget sessions that last only 60 days every other year (or should). However, the poor performance of Kentucky schools — open 177 days each year — should not get cast aside as easily. Since economic issues usually rate highest at the ballot box, challengers who can tie a failing publiceducation system to voter pocketbooks may succeed. Kentuckians have heard so much about the commonwealth’s low educational rankings through the years that they have almost become inoculated against catching a fever for change. Instead, voters need candidates — TEA party or others — who connect the dots concerning what a failing education system means for Kentucky’s economic future. Here is some dotconnecting to consider: • Federal and state government data shows that more than 786,000 Kentucky students who passed

Ground Zero is no place for mosque


Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, the legendary pair of comedians from the 1940s, became stars because of a routine they performed entitled, “Who’s On First?” For those too young to remember, Abbott was the manager of a baseball team and he kept trying to describe to Costello which persons played which positions on the team. Costello became more and more frustrated when he was told “Who” played first base. “‘Who’ is the man’s name,” Abbott replied. “‘Who’s’ on first, ‘What’s’ on second, and ‘I Don’t Know’ is on third.” There appears to be that type of organizational order when it comes to the Meade County Road Department if last week’s discussion at Meade County Fiscal Court is any indication. After the Fiscal Court meeting last week, there doesn’t seem to be an agreement on just who is supposed to do what. The problem came to light when the court was asked to approve a road. The county director of planning had the signed evaluation showing the road had met county specifications and was qualified to be approved. But, Esquire Herbert Chism noted the evaluation had been signed by the assistant road superintendent and not by the superintendent himself. Chism said ordinances require the head of the department to sign such forms, but it appears the magistrate may not have read the policies and ordinances in question before making his claim. County regulations say the request shall be sent by the county planning director to “the appropriate county official for inspection.” So, in the case of approving a road, that would be the road superintendent. But, in this case, there was a time frame that had to be met by the court under law. Otherwise, the roads would automatically be placed under county control. That required the evaluation to be done at a time when Road Superintendent Mark Popham was not available. Therefore, Assistant Road Superintendent Jeff Padgett performed the evaluation and signed the form. Chism remained firm during the Fiscal Court session in his belief Padgett’s signature was not adequate and made a motion, approved by the court, that Popham go back out and do another evaluation himself. All of this suggests a potential problem with the line of authority in county departments. There aren’t many major companies, corporations or organizations that do not have a line of succession in place. Should the head of the department, company, or organization not be available or not able to serve, there is normally someone who is authorized to serve in that capacity. They are given all the powers of the lead person should important and/or immediate decisions need to be made. Meade County does have such a line of succession at least for the department in question and, here again, Chism appears not to have researched county policies before making his statements. There is a written policy that gives the job description of the assistant road superintendent. It states “the assistant will perform the supervisor ’s duties in his absence.” This policy seems to make it clear that Padgett had the authority to carry out any responsibility normally served by Popham in his absence. In forcing the delay for another evaluation, the Fiscal Court has cost time and money for a developer who is developing a new tax base for Meade County. So, why is there any question at all about who is supposed to do what? The court’s discussion suggests several questions: Is Mr. Popham fully meeting his responsibilities as supervisor? Is Mr. Padgett qualified to be assistant — a position that normally would require him to take over the duties should Mr. Proham not be available? Is the court suggesting there is no need for assistant department heads to be deemed able to take the lead when necessary? Are our magistrates taking the time needed to research and be fully informed about issues they have to decide on? The scenario presents itself this way: What if a major roadway was severely damaged and needed immediate action and Mr. Popham is not available? Would Fiscal Court have to meet and give Mr. Padgett the authority to do what was necessary to fix such a major problem? This is in no way questioning the abilities of either road department officer or the intentions of the magistrate. However, we do hope all representatives on Fiscal Court take the time to know the policies and regulations by which they have to judge the issues that come before them. And, we do hope that in the case of real need or emergency, it is clear to everyone serving in county government “Who’s on first?”

The afternoon was filled with many different activities including various games of chance, face painting, horse rides, and a display of antique tractors and farm machinery. The church is currently in the process of a $200,000 renovation. Interior walls have been repaired as well as the altar areas. Hardwood floors have been restored and carpet replaced throughout the rest of the church. The church is located at 9245 Rhodelia Road in Payneville.

God prays for our security, have victory over the devil Dan Newton Divine Guidance Romans 8: 34 says, “Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.” (KJV) One of the most glorious truths of the Christian life is that the Lord Jesus Christ, who died for our sins and rose for our justification, now lives to intercede for us before God. The greatest example of intercessory prayer in the Bible is in John 17, where the Lord poured out His heart for His disciples. “I pray for them,” he said, “I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast

given me; for they are thine.” (John 17: 9) But that was not all.“ Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word.“ (John 17: 20) And that’s us. That includes us. What is it that he prays for? First of all, He prays for our security. “Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.“ (John 17: 11) Then he prays that we might have real victory over sin and the devil. “I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.” (John 17: 15) His next request is: “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.“ (John 17: 17) Our sanctification will come, therefore, not ßthrough some special experience, but through God’s Word.

He also prays for true unity among His true disciples: “that they all may be one; as thou Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in is: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.“ (John 17: 21) Finally, He prays for our ultimate glorification. “Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me.“ We can be assured that the Father will grant these requests of His beloved son. If you just moved to our area, we invite you to visit with us at Grace Baptist Church. Our Sunday morning service starts at 11 a.m.We invite you to listen to our weekly Sunday radio program on WMMG from 9:30 to 10 a.m. Reverend Dan Newton is the pastor of Grace Baptist Church.

Friends and relatives of the candidates read a Bible scripture as a prelude to each baptism. Each candidate received a Bible, a rose, and a certificate of baptism after the service. Minister of Music Roxanne Nanney led the gathered in the hymn, “In Christ Alone” as the service’s postlude.

828-8447 for more info Former U of K athlete to preach at Brandenburg United Methodist Glad Tidings Christian Center Submitted by Brandenburg United Methodist Church

Brandenburg United Methodist Church will welcome Cameron Mills on Sunday, August 22, at 7 p.m., when he shares his message during the tip-off for the church’s fall halftime session. The event is free and open to the public, but a love offering for Cameron Mills Ministries will be received. When Cameron Mills walked on to the University of Kentucky basketball team in 1994, he had no idea that he’d walk away with a full scholarship and two NCAA titles. Although it was a dream fulfilled, Cameron

will be the first to tell you that the glitter of a championship ring is temporal and quickly fades. During his basketball career, Cameron co-authored a book, A Dream Come True, and was featured in Sports Illustrated, Sports Spectrum, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, the Boston Globe and in stories on CBS and CNNSI. Though basketball has been a big part of Mills’ life, his calling since he was 12 has been ministry. In June of 1998, he began Cameron Mills Ministries, Inc. Since then he has been speaking to schools, youth groups, and churches. He has held revivals and spoken at Christian

music festivals, and college chapels. Although interest is piqued by his affiliation with the winningest college basketball program in the country, Mills holds his audience’s attention by delivering a high energy, thought-provoking, Biblebased message. Today, Mills travels the country doing youth rallies, retreats and church services. He also does public speaking on abstinence from drugs, alcohol and sex, and being a true champion. From his past experiences, God has given Cameron a platform to reach his ultimate goal — sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Guest Speaker, Greg Carter August 28th at 9am At Glad Tidings on the By-Pass Food and Event are GTCC Upcoming event: Golf Scramble Doe Valley • October 2, 9:00am $45 before Sept. 19 • Call to Register 422-2020

Hardesty announces re-election

I, Randall Hardesty would like to take this opportunity to announce my candidacy for re-election for 6th district magistrate. I have enjoyed working for and helping the citizens of my district as well as all of Meade County to make it a better place to live and raise our families. If re-elected, I will continue to work to get the needs for the citizens of the 6th district, as well as helping for the betterment of all Meade County.

Health From page A1 “I totally agree that if they’re going to force businesses to have health care, they should help them out,” Brandenburg Pharmacy owner Adam Robinson said. “As far as a business standpoint, it’s going to be a good thing. And it’s going to be a good thing as a whole, if it’s going to get more people going to see a doctor.” Higher premiums are generally offered to smaller businesses, meaning health care benefits are generally cost prohibitive. As a result of the tax credits, qualifying small businesses with 25 or fewer employees will be eligible for tax credits this year. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, passed in December 2009, coupled with the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, which was signed into law on March 30, is expected to help cut prices of health care costs for those small businesses. Because smaller businesses are less likely to provide health care benefits for employees, access to healthcare could be within reach to many who could not afford it before. The health care tax credits will allow businesses to stabilize the balancing act of maintaining profits while providing health care for employees Only four out of 10 small businesses in Kentucky offer coverage. Brandenburg Pharmacy is one of those businesses.

Arch From page A1 Winning a share of the grant money isn’t the first time the company has been

In the past four years I have voted to keep our tax rates same and at the same time managed to get the debt at solid waste paid off. I worked to get the 40 plus miles of new water lines which are under construction at this time through out the 6th district. I have an open door policy and am on call 24-7 to take your concerns and questions. At this time I am asking for your support for re-election as 6th district magistrate.

The value of the credit, which lasts until 2014, is up to 35 percent of the employer’s cost of employee coverage, according to the report. Nonprofit employers are afforded a reimbursement of up to 25 percent. The bigger the business, the smaller the amount of the tax credit available The full 35 percent tax credit is extended to the smallest firms — those with 10 employees or fewer who earn less than $25,000. Brandenburg Pharmacy offers its employees health and dental benefits if they choose to take it. Out of the seven employees, five have signed up for the benefits. The employees who choose not to take the health benefits are generally covered by a spouse’s benefits, Robinson said. More than 51,000 of Kentucky’s 57,400 small businesses will be eligible for health care tax credits. Out of those firms, 15,800 will be eligible for the maximum premium tax credits. Other affects of the health care reform act will come to fruition n the future. Beginning in 2014, small business owners will be able to shop for and compare benefits through state health insurance exchanges. Health plans will be required to meet consumer protection and quality standards, according to the report. Plans exercising unreasonable plan hikes in the years prior to 2014 will be excluded from selling coverage in the exchanges. Another change appearing acknowledged for its energy efficient endeavors. In 2003, Arch Chemicals was the recipient an American Chemical Council Energy Efficient Award for a project, which reduced annual carbon dioxide emissions.

Groundbreaking on library set for Sept. 7 By Brian Graves The News Standard Groundbreaking ceremonies for the new Meade County Public Library have been set for Tuesday, September 7 at 10 a.m. Rachael Baelz, library director, said the ceremonies would include children from the library’s story hour wearing hard hats to help with the ceremonial shoveling of the ground. Baelz added refreshments would be served and invitations to dignitaries are going out this week. Baelz met with contractors and subcontractors

at a meeting Thursday to help finalize all the technical plans involved with the construction. Justin McElfresh, project manager with Sherman, Carter, Barnhart, said he expected the contractors to be “chomping at the bit” to begin mobilizing on the Old Ekron Road site quickly. McElfresh also said he doesn’t anticipate many traffic problems associated with the construction except for the times when materials are being transported onto the site. The anticipated date for completion of the facility is Sept. 1, 2011.

in 2014 will be that insurers will not be allowed to increase rates for pre-existing health conditions. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, passed in December 2009, coupled with the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, which was signed into law on March 30, is expected to help cut prices of health care costs for those small businesses. Because smaller businesses are less likely to provide health care benefits for employees, access to healthcare could be within reach to many who could not afford it before. “If you force them (employees) to take it now, it’s going to help them save thousands down the road, like with cancer treatment and other things. It’s obviously going to help because health care isn’t cheap,” Robinson said.

Fire From page A1 St. John’s Catholic Church and HWY 933 where someone had taken a hose, put it over the river bank and left it on for days. Hughes doesn’t know the exact amount of water loss, though he says it’s costing the city money. “It’s expensive to play little games like that,” he said, adding that it causes a trickle down affect since it involves the police department, fire department and the water district. Hughes has also notified those units to keep a look out for suspicious activity. “The person who is

leaving them on could be anybody with mechanical knowledge,” Hughes said. “I think it’s somebody who knows what they’re doing.” This random action would be taken seriously by the Brandenburg Police Department. According to Chief Jeff Cox, by leaving the hydrants on it equals to a Class A Misdemeanor since it would be considered vandalism and criminal trespassing. He added that it could equal up to a year in jail. However, Cox was quick to note that every situation is different and the police department is currently investigating the situation. Since Hughes and his department found out

about the water loss, they have to keep an extra eye on the fire hydrants everyday. “We now make it a point to look at those hydrants a couple times a day,” he said. “Ninety-nine percent of the time, our trucks will be there if it’s left on.” Mayor David Pace said he was baffled by the hydrant situation. “We’ve never had someone that thinks it funny to leave the hydrants on,” Pace said at the council meeting. Overall, Hughes is amazed someone just feels like randomly leaving fire hydrants run. “I’ve never seen something like this before,” Hughes said.

Meade County C of C plans state fair exhibit Submitted by Meade County Chamber of Commerce

Meade Countians visiting this yearís Kentucky State Fair should be sure to visit the exhibit being staged by Meade County Tourism. This year ’s exhibit — double the size of the one mounted last year — focuses on things that draw visitors to Meade County, such as its award-winning county fair, its role in the Civil War, and attractions as diverse as the local farmers’ market and the Clothesline of Quilts. “We think this will be our bestever exhibit,” said Russ Powell, executive director of the Meade County Area Chamber of Commerce, which operates the tourism office for Meade County and the City of Brandenburg. “Deciding to increase the exhibit’s size to 10-by-40 feet will allow us to focus on the Meade County Fair, our community’s biggest attraction,” he said. New this year will be Neal and Melissa Allen’s competitive pulling truck, named Red Rock, and onetenth scale remote-control pulling trucks and tractors assembled by enthusiast C.W. Hesler. Again this year, part of the exhibit area will be devoted to championship items from this yearís Meade County Fair and videos of the fair ’s nationally recognized truck and tractor pulls. The exhibit will be in the Pride of the Counties section of the fair, located in South Wing A at the Kentucky Fair & Exposition Center in Louisville. It will be open from

9 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day of the fair ’s run, which begins August 19 and ends August 29. In addition to seeing the exhibit, visitors will be able to visit with their fellow Meade County residents who have volunteered to staff it during the fair, says Powell. “We’re fortunate to have a cadre of loyal volunteers who enjoy attending the fair and extolling the virtues of Meade County,” he says. Those volunteers will be: Jeff & Judy Adkisson, Rick & Ann Allen, Neal & Melissa Allen, Joe & Norma Bartley, Greg & Shirley Beavin, Laura Branson, Charles & Kay Briggs, Gary Chapman, Mickey & Dianne Chism. Mary Coghill, Harry & Marilyn Craycroft, Larry & Roxann Curts, Daryl & Joyce Durbin, Rae-Ann Embry, Shirley Fackler, Cari Flaherty, Tim Gossett, Jim Greer. George & Barbara Hecht, Allegra Hecht, C.W. & Tammy Hesler, Ronnie & Flo Joyner, David & Karen Kinder, Greg & Michelle Lawson, Amy Lawson, David Pace, Charlotte Shepard, Jasmine Shepard, Barry Stewart, Logan Stewart, and Lorrie Young. “Just as important as the volunteers who staff our exhibit are the people and organizations that make the exhibit possible by providing items, transportation, and other kinds of support,” Powell said. In particular, he cites: • Neal and Melissa Allen, who will provide their pulling truck for the exhibit and transport it to Louisville. • J.T. Barger, whose popular re-

built wagon will be on display once again. • Billy Barnes, whose awardwinning cornhole board will be exhibited. • Ann Duncan, whose awardwinning apron will be exhibited. • American Rental, which will provide video equipment. • Jennifer Bridge, an agent at the Meade County Cooperative Extension Service, who is gathering items for the exhibit from Meade County Fair winners. • Elizabeth Burns, whose awardwinning model carousel will be exhibited. • Daryl and Joyce Durbin, who will transport all the equipment and items needed for the exhibit to Louisville and help with its staging. • Doug Elstone, who will help with staging and staffing the exhibit. • C.W. Hesler, who is securing the one-tenth scale pulling trucks and tractors and who will stage them in the exhibit. • Karen McCool, whose awardwinning quick bread will be exhibited. • Frank Mudd, whose awardwinning watermelon will be exhibited. • David Pace, mayor of Brandenburg and manager of the Meade County Fair, who will provide videos of the truck and tractor pulls. • Virgie Walker, whose awardwinning tablerunner will be exhibited. • Shannon Wardrip, whose award-winning cross-stitchery will be exhibited.

Uniform policy hopes to decrease student distractions 2010 School Series By Jennifer Corbett The News Standard

Editor’s Note: This is the fourth story in a seven-part series concerning different aspects of a student’s life in Meade County and the opportunities available to them. Khaki pants, plaid skirts and loafers are just a few examples of what some kids have to wear each day when they attend school. Some of the rules that come with uniform policies include what color socks to wear, always keeping shirttails tucked in, no “gang related” items and keeping a certain hair length. In Meade County, uniform policies are a bit different and not as strict. The Meade County Board of Education doesn’t decide to implement uniform policies; in fact, each school is governed by a “Site Based Decision Making Council (SBDM),” who ultimately set the policies and guidelines. Each council is made up of three teachers and two parents. According to Amy Berry, coordinator of Student Services, the goal of the SBDM is student achievement by improving school programs, approving school budgets, selection of personnel and creating policies. Most of the work is done through committees; those committees create a plan and submit it to the council for approval. For example, if someone wanted to create a uniform policy at Stuart Pepper Middle School they could create a committee and prepare a tentative plan. Berry said they also have the option to “go through an existing committee. Schools even have a committee for school climate and culture, which would be a perfect fit for uniform policies.” Superintendent Mitch Crump compared uniform guidelines to starting a new job. For instance, if he worked at UPS he said he would follow their uniform guidelines as a sign of respect. “When parents or businesses make policies you have to respect that,” he said. Currently, David T. Wilson Elementary and Brandenburg Primary are the only Meade County schools that have uniform policies. Brandenburg Primary’s guidelines states “uniformity will consist of pants, skirts, shorts, “skorts”, or jumpers in navy or khaki colors and a white, navy, hunter green

or burgundy button down blouse or polo shirt with collar. Tennis or athletic shoes with rubber soles, that either tie or Velcro fasten. Please no slip on shoes.” At D.T.W, they don’t have a shoe policy and the uniform policy is more relaxed. Students can also wear a white, maroon, hunter green or navy collar shirt; a solid color t-shirt that has the school logo on it. “Some kids go out and get their own t-shirts and put our logo on it,” said Donna Foushee, principal at D.T.W. “But for the most part, ours are cheap enough to get them here.” According to Foushee, DTW has a relaxed uniform procedures and just this year they decided to allow students to have their shirttails untucked. Foushee said she couldn’t be happier with the new rule. “Most people don’t like to tuck their shirts in,” she added. The laid-back guidelines equals to more time focused on the vital aspect of school. “The more rules you make the more time you have to spend enforcing them,” Foushee said. “If you put all your energy on enforcing rules like that, you don’t have time to do the important things. So it’s more about building relationships with the kids.” While some say uniforms take away from a students’ individuality, Foushee said it’s important to create fewer distractions so students can focus on their schoolwork. “I think individuality needs to be about being a good person, helping each other out, being respectful — they can show that through their work,” she added. Uniform guidelines also help break down social barriers so students won’t feel left out if they aren’t wearing the newest brand of clothing, Foushee noted. “They don’t have to worry about name brands because everybody is wearing the same shirt,” she said. Prior to D.T.W., Foushee taught at Stuart Pepper Middle School, where they don’t have a uniform policy. She had mixed feelings about coming into D.T.W with uniforms. “I never thought I based my opinions about kids on their clothing,” she said. “I didn’t realize, though, how much I put them in a group. I knew, for instance, these were my deer hunters because they wore camo all the time. Or, here is my goth kids because they wore black … You know without even realizing it, you

Students can wear t-shirts with the school’s logo in burgundy, hunter green, navy or white collar shirt with khaki or navy pants. made assumptions.” After some time at DTW, Foushee began to appreciate uniforms. “When I came here, every kid had the same haircut just about and had the same shirts on,” she said. “So I think it helps everyone blend in and feel better.” For the most part, Foushee said she has heard nothing but positive reception to the uniform policies. Not everyone agrees with the aspect of uniforms. Parents or guardians can voice their concerns to their schools’ SBDM council, Crump said. “Parents, for the most part, love it because they don’t have arguments over what the kid is going to wear to school that day,” Foushee said. “It’s much easier to get dressed, go shopping and it’s less expensive.” According to Foushee, the price of shirts went up one dollar at DTW — thus raising the price of shirts to $7. They go through a locally owned company that tries to keep prices low and the quality high. However Foushee said there have been many circumstances where families couldn’t afford the uniforms. In these situations, the Family Resource Center steps in and helps get uniforms. There are also times set aside, such as the Back to School Bash held July 31, where families can bring in old uniforms and donate them to other parents.

As a parent, Crump’s personal experience with uniforms has been nothing but positive. “It’s been a pretty good thing for the family,” he said. “It’s an easy routine.” That routine consists of buying the t-shirts at the school and buying khaki pants almost anywhere.

“School uniforms are pretty economical,” Crump said. Crump and his wife save money on uniforms for their three boys by buying at a discount rate, only allowing them to be worn during school hours and handing them down once each boy is done with them. Foushee said her main goal

regarding uniforms is to take away disruptions and concentrate education. “If anything becomes a problem about being a distraction, taking away from a students’ learning or causing a behavior problem, we address it,” she said. “But for the most part, students are doing a great job.”

FEATURES Taking a dog-leg left into Eubank appliance history

Friday, August 20, 2010

A10 - The News Standard

Doggone that Ed Buis anyway. If my wife Carol and I hadn’t stopped by to meet Eubank’s living legend, perhaps we wouldn’t have a new puppy who is rapidly chewing up our furniture. It all happened just this way. We were walking through the cemetery next to the old Eubank High recently when a collarless, cute and friendly pooch came up to us. Carol remarked that if we knew she didn’t have an owner, we should claim her. Meanwhile, we decide that while in town it might be interesting to step in the nearby Buis Appliance & Furniture. Being Somerset natives, we’d both heard of Ed Buis all our lives, mostly through advertisements for his business on Main, but had never met the man. We even wondered aloud if a person we senior citizens had been aware of in our teens could still be alive. We soon discover the 86-year-old silver-haired Casey County native is very much alive and looking dapper in stylish clothing with a western theme. It is also evident that the town’s resident historian has lots of stories to share. So, plans are made for an interview


ABOVE from left: Shaun, Ed, Helen, Doug and Cris Buis outside the family business in Eubank. They will be celebrating 67 years on Main next month. session. Fast forward a week and I’m back in Eubank for what I anticipate will be a lengthy sit-down discussion with Ed and his family. Driving along the street, I see our doggie friend, still wandering around the cemetery. The Bentleys, a nice couple who live nearby, tell me the dog was abandoned after giving

birth to a litter of puppies. They say other neighbors have been feeding her and suggest she needs a permanent home away from the busy roadways, where she’s likely to be hit sooner or later. Long story short … the puppy has a new home in Lawrenceburg, Ky. The other long story out of Eubank, impossible to make short, involves the life and times of Ed Buis. I think we took a liking

to each other right away. Perhaps it had something to do with the fact I had served as editor of his hometown newspaper, The Casey County News, in the mid to late 70s. He has been a regular reader of the Casey News and the Commonwealth-Journal (where I got my start in journalism in 1970) for decades, according to his son, Doug. The story of how he came to start his business in Eubank has already been reported by another living

legend, the CommonwealthJournal’s Bill Mardis, so there’s no sense trying to improve on perfection. However, I find it fascinating listening to him describe life in his beloved adopted hometown. It’s hard to imagine Eubank being home to 23 grocery stores in 1943, but he says that was the case when Main was a part of U. S. 27. Residents also had the option of traveling by bus or train to Somerset. Train tickets were 10 cents each way. His tales of providing customers with appliances when electricity was first made available to the rural areas serve to remind me of the mid-1950s when I would accompany my dad on deliveries for the W. D. Gover Furniture Company in Somerset. I’ve never forgotten being at one very rural residence where my dad asked the lady of the house the time of day. She told her son to “go outside and look” and I could see him squinting as he stared up at the bright sun. “Looks like about 12:30, momma,” the boy said, thus introducing me to what my dad later explained was “sun time.” Despite being a handsome gentleman, Ed was on “slow time” in the matrimony department, remaining a bachelor until 1956 when he caught the eye of a pretty young widow working at

FirstState Bank. He points out that the marriage has survived despite the time his young bride, the former Helen Joyce Barron, fell for another man. With a twinkle in his eye, he explains how customers were invited to the store to watch shows when color televisions were first introduced. A favorite was Bonanza, featuring the Cartwright boys, Little Joe, Hoss, and Adam. “My wife was pretty struck on Adam,” Ed said. Any possible jealousy on Ed’s part was probably negated by the fact nearly every person viewing the TV’s ordered one brought out to their home “Along with the best antenna you’ve got,” Ed recalled. Serving customers well has long been the policy of Ed and Helen Buis and is continuing through Doug, who is president of the company, and his two sons Shaun, 22, and Cris, 20. Next month, they will mark “67 years on Main” with an anniversary sale, offering big savings on everything in stock plus live entertainment, prize drawings and refreshments at Eubank City Park. The day can’t come soon enough for us. Goodness knows we could use some new furniture, and I’m sure the new puppy will appreciate having a taste of home.

We all scream for ice cream, even after all these years By Angela Shelf Medearis The Kitchen Diva

It’s hot, and like many of you, one of my favorite ways to cool off is with a bowl of ice cream. Vanilla ice cream continues to be America’s flavor of choice. Ice cream’s origins are known to reach back as far as the second century B.C., although no specific date of origin or inventor has been indisputably credited with its discovery. We know that Alexander the Great enjoyed snow and ice flavored with honey and nectar. Biblical references also show that King Solomon was fond of iced drinks during harvesting. During the Roman Empire, Nero Claudius Caesar (A.D. 54-86) frequently sent runners into the mountains for snow, which was then flavored with fruits and juices. More than a thousand years later, Marco Polo returned to Italy from the Far East with a recipe that closely resembled what is now called sherbet. Historians estimate that this recipe evolved into ice cream sometime in the 16th century. England seems to have discovered ice cream at the same time, or perhaps even earlier, than the Italians. “Cream Ice,” as it was called, appeared regularly at the table of Charles I during the 17th century. It wasn’t until 1660 that ice cream was made available to the general public. The Sicilian Procopio introduced a recipe blending milk, cream, butter and eggs at Cafe Procope, the first cafe in Paris.

The first official account of ice cream in the New World comes from a letter written in 1744 by a guest of Maryland Governor William Bladen. Records kept by a Chatham Street, New York, merchant show that President George Washington spent approximately $200 for ice cream during the summer of 1790. President Thomas Jefferson’s slave chef, James Hemings, is said to have a favorite 18step recipe for an ice-cream delicacy that resembled a modern-day baked Alaska. Around 1800, insulated ice houses were invented. Manufacturing ice cream soon became an industry in America, pioneered in 1851 by a Baltimore milk dealer named Jacob Fussell. Due to ongoing technological advances, today’s frozen dairy production in the United States is more than 1.6 billion gallons annually. Wide availability of ice cream in the late 19th century led to new creations. In 1874, the American soda-fountain shop and the profession of the “soda jerk” emerged with the invention of the ice-cream soda. In response to religious criticism for eating “sinfully” rich ice-cream sodas on Sundays, ice-cream merchants left out the carbonated water and invented the icecream “Sunday” in the late 1890s. The name was eventually changed to “sundae” to remove any connection with the sabbath. Today, ice-cream machines make it easy for home cooks to prepare their favorite flavor of this delicious, frozen dessert. Try this wonderful ice-cream

recipe, and beat the heat with a frozen treat Frozen custard ice cream Don’t let a favorite homemade ice cream using with raw eggs cramp your style with a possible food-borne illness. Substitute an eggbased ice-cream recipe made from a cooked, stirred custard, such as the following recipe and variations from the American Egg Board. 6 eggs 2 cups milk 3/4 cup sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 cups whipping cream 1 tablespoon vanilla 1. In medium saucepan, beat together eggs, milk, sugar and salt. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick enough to coat a metal spoon with a thin film and reaches at least 160 F. Cool quickly by setting pan in ice or cold water and stirring for a few minutes. Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, at least one hour. 2. When ready to freeze, pour chilled custard, whipping cream and vanilla into 1-gallon ice-cream freezer container. Freeze, according to manufacturer’s directions, until firm. Makes 1 1/2 to 2 quarts. Variations: Banana Nut: Reduce vanilla to 1 1/2 teaspoons. Cook and cool as above. Stir three large ripe bananas, mashed, and 1/2 cup chopped, toasted pecans into custard mixture. Freeze as above.

Canning those wonderful August harvests Jennifer Bridge Family & Consumer Science Oh how delicious are those wonderful August vegetables and fruits. In January, we think back with fondness on those juicy tomatoes of late summer, those sweet, sweet ears of corn and the fleshy peaches. There is a way to enjoy the harvests of summer, by canning. Canning can be safe and economical when done properly, not to mention a source of pride for the effort.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s booklet on canning, if vegetables are handled properly and canned promptly after harvest, they can be more nutritious than fresh produce sold in local stores. First, start with the freshest of the harvest. These will make the best canning vegetables. Your county extension agent can suggest varieties of fruits and vegetables in your area that are best suited to canning. Canning within six to 12 hours after harvesting vegetables is a good rule of thumb. For best quality apricots, nectarines, peaches, pears and plums, ripen one or

more days between harvest and canning. If you must delay the canning of other fresh produce, keep it in a shady, cool place. How much should you can? Your county extension agent can help you determine the amount you might need for the size of your family and your personal tastes. Canning takes some work and care, but in the dead of winter when you are enjoying the “fruits” of your labor, it will all be worth it. Contact the Meade County Extension Office for more information on the proper and safe ways to can your harvest.

BUSINESS Artist creates walking canvases using the art of ink on skin

The News Standard - A11

Friday, August 20, 2010

By Jennifer Corbett The News Standard

When Adam Long is in the zone, the only thing he is focused on is creating the perfect tattoo on what he considers a “walking canvas.” Long is the owner of Unleashed Ink, a tattoo parlor that launched in Brandenburg three months ago. The business is located in a cozy four-room office right off the ByPass. The company gives its patrons a feeling unlike most tattoo parlors. “I try to keep the shop upscale with a modern design,” Long said. “I try to give everyone a warm welcoming environment. So it’s a good experience. If somebody is going to spend money to get a tattoo, I would rather them feel comfortable and want to be here.” From the beginning, Long knew he wanted to draw tattoos for a living and be his own boss. “I wasn’t going to start for somebody when I could start my own shop,” he said. Unleashed Ink can cater to almost any tattoo requests ranging from old school tattoos to modern style tattoos and from a small flower to full body tattoos. “We do pretty much everything,” Long said. “Though I really don’t have anyone here doing portraits yet.” Long added that Unleashed Ink is testing out the waters with portrait tattoos and pretty soon will be able to show off their talents in that area. The amount of time it takes to draw and fully shade a tattoo depends on the size. The time spent can range from 20 minutes to two months. But in the end, Long promises his company will not hurt the cus-

tomer during the process. “You do it as long as the customer will sit there and take it or as long as their body will take it,” Long said. “Because your body will only take so much before it starts to reject the ink.” Right as someone walks in the door, they see rows upon rows of picture books that showcases tattoos the staff has created. After looking through the books, it’s obvious that with their 10-plus years of experience, Unleashed Ink can promise its customers that they are true artists and can create exactly what the customer is looking for. As soon as someone requests a tattoo at Unleashed Ink, the team joins forces to

create exactly what the customer envisions. “Someone comes in, picks what they want or if they have an idea they can bring it to us,” Long said. “We try to collaborate to get a better idea of what they want.” Once they get an idea, Unleashed Ink draws a stencil of the tattoo. The stencil is then put through a machine. The artist then puts the outline on the person. Once they are ready, the tattoo artist begins to trace, shade and then finally, colors the tattoo. There have been times where customers have come in and had no idea what tattoo they wanted. “That’s when you collaborate with them and kind of pick their brains,” Long said. “You see what they want

to go with and then you sit there and sketch it out for them. That’s where you get custom tattoos.” Unleashed Ink goes above and beyond to ensure their customers that they won’t misspell any tattoos. “What you do is ask the customer to spell it,” Long said. “It’s true. If you’re going to get something they want a name on, you spell how they spell it because there are 10 different ways to spell one name.” Long has encountered some situations where he has had to fix other tattoo artist’s mistakes — some are minor and some he has to start from scratch. “Say somebody gets a tattoo, it’s messed up and someone can’t go in and fix

it,” Long said. “Basically what you have to do is start over.” According to Long, this process known as a “coverup” begins with creating a design to incorporate where they can cover the old tattoo. “So basically, you make the tattoo disappear with a different design,” Long said. “It’s all in technique and how you hide it. You kind of make it blend it with the other tattoo, but you also have to make it go away.” Long knows the stigmas that come along with getting a tattoo, so he always tries to work with his customers when they are trying to select a tattoo. “It’s a big decision,” he said. “You’ve got to sit there and think about it. I don’t care if somebody stands here for 30 minutes. I would rather then think about it and get what they want, instead of ‘Oh, just put that on me.’” There have been situations where people have wanted tattoos that won’t necessari-

ly fit on a portion of the body that they want. “That’s when you have to explain to them what will make it look right,” Long said. “They come in and want some big, silly design or something like that and you know it’s not going to look right — well that’s your name and reputation. You’ve got to talk to them and explain if we do it this way, we’ll make it look right.” The best part of Long’s job comes when he sees the finalized product on someone’s body. “It’s a good feeling,” he said. “You’re putting artwork on somebody and they’re displaying it to everybody.” Unleashed Ink is open from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Wednesday-Friday, noon to 9 p.m. on Saturday and from noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

AGRICULTURE Lower crop yields plaguing Kentucky farmers this year

Friday, August 20, 2010

A12 - The News Standard

By Casey Tolliver The News Standard

Although this year ’s unusually damp and tepid weather have lead to an early harvest of some crops, the overall affect has been detrimental according to a press release from the United States Department of Agriculture last week. This year ’s lacking yield for crops such as corn, soybeans and tobacco could mean less cash in the pockets of local farmers, Meade County Extension Office Agent Andy Mills said. “What’s going to happen is that farmers are going to make less money this year,” Mills said. “That’s why not everyone are farmers, there’s a risk. If we knew we would have ideal weather, there wouldn’t be as much risk. Weather dictates plant growth and plant growth dictates yield.” Harvests of a week to 10 days earlier than usual can help maintain current quality. However, overall early crop yields reported by


Soybeans are one of several crops affected by this year’s arid and tepid weather. Kentucky farmers so far indicate the numbers are down 10 percent form last year. Though the lower yields indicate a lower average comparatively over the past five years, they don’t reflect a dismal forecast for Kentucky farmers, rather a fluctuation of yearly variations. “It’s not going to be as

bad as 2007,” Mills said. Last year was a good year for crop yields, he added. Weather conditions not only affect crops, but also indirectly affect local cattle producers. Tepid temperatures and scarce rainfall have withered local pastures, rendering them less beneficial and in many cases dried

lack of calcium that commonly occurs in tomatoes but can also affect eggplant, peppers and many cucurbits. Blossom end rot spots develop into dark brown, leathery decays that may affect half of the tomato. Calcium is an essential part of the chemical “glue” that binds cells together within the fruit. When fruits are enlarging rapidly, sufficient amounts of calcium do not reach the end of the fruit. This causes cells to come apart, resulting in a rot or decay in that area. Calcium does not move easily from other plant parts, so any disruption in the plant’s uptake can result in a deficiency. Soils in Kentucky are rarely deficient in calcium, but water plays a critical role in the plant’s uptake and distribution of calcium. So maintaining an even supply of moisture is important in controlling blossom end rot. However, to be sure that a soil is not calcium-deficient, soil tests should be taken, and if needed, it can be applied as lime prior to planting.

Irrigate plants as needed, and use mulch to conserve soil moisture. Irrigate on a consistent basis. Don’t allow plants to become stressed from too much or too little water. Avoid wetting foliage as much as possible as this could encourage fungal and bacterial diseases to develop on the plant. Trickle or drip irrigation is an excellent way of getting water to plants without the risk of wetting the foliage or splashing soil onto the foliage which can also lead to disease problems. In addition, excessive amounts of ammonium tend to depress a plant’s calcium uptake. Avoid using urea or fertilizers high in ammonium. Instead, choose fertilizers high in nitrate. Calcium nitrate is an excellent nitrogen fertilizer, although it is more expensive than other nitrogen sources. For more information on how to keep diseases from dampening your gardening enthusiasm, contact the Meade County Cooperative Extension Service.

up, according to Mills. “Cow, horse and goat farmers will be feeding hay earlier,” Mills said. “Cows are receiving lower quality nutrients during

this part of the year. Ideally, what farmers should do is supplementally feed their calves and cows. If they’re receiving a poor quality forage, which most of them probably are, then they should receive a supplemental feeding.” The lack of nutrition has a trickle down affect with possible detriment stemming from cows to their calves. When spring calves begin to wean, weaning weights may be lower, which means farmers may receive less money when they sell their calves. Also, fall calves could have less than desirable body conditions. Mills said during 2008 the breeding season and pregnancy dates were strung out. He added that breeding seasons following a drought results in an extended consequent calving season. Variations in calves’ ages

will be one of the longstanding affects of this year’s arid conditions. “Drought usually hurts us for at least a year,” Mills said. Local tobacco farmers will probably also feel the brunt of this year’s weather related crop afflictions, he added. “Tobacco farmers are going to have a little less yield, probably,” Mills said. High levels of moisture are necessary during the topping stage of the tobacco growing process which plants are currently in — a commodity not afforded by current weather conditions. Certain farmers may be eligible for economic recovery for weather related damages, according to Mills. “Crop insurance could kick in and probably will kick in for soybean crops,” he said. “Probably not so much for corn, but definitely for soybeans.”

How to divide perennials Andy Mills Ag & Natural Resources If your perennials aren’t putting on their usual show this spring, it may be time to dig and divide. Perennials need space, and once they become crowded, blooms can become smaller and infrequent. Dividing the plants to create more room usually restores their vigor. Spring is a good time to divide many perennials. If you are unsure about the timing, here is a good rule of thumb. If the plant blooms in the spring, divide it after it blooms or in the fall. If the plant blooms in the summer or fall, divide it in the spring. Perennials grow from underground structures like fleshy roots, rhizomes or bulbs. This is the part of the plant that needs to be divided. Dig up the plant, remove old leaves and shake off loose dirt to expose the underground parts. Gently pull or cut the plant apart into several sections making sure each section has some recent growth at the top. Use one section to replace the original plant and set it in so that the crown is just at soil level. You can use the remaining “new” plants created from your divisions to expand your landscaping or share with gardening friends and relatives. A fun way to get the most from your extra perennials is to organize a plant exchange in your neighborhood, civic organization, workplace or school. Encourage participants to label their contributions and provide information such as whether the plants prefer full sun or partial shade. Not only will you get new acquisitions for your home landscape, but you may even make a new gardening friend.

Volleyball opens season with a winning record MC off to a good start with wins over district foes By Ben Achtabowski The News Standard The Meade County Lady Waves volleyball team had their best start in two years as they opened their first full week with a 6-3 record. Two of the wins have come against district teams, Breckinridge and Hancock counties. “It’s unusual to play both district teams this early in the season,” said Meade County head coach Jennifer Smith. “Breckinridge is going to give us a tough

time this year.” The Lady Waves had an early-season wake up call during their second game of the season when they beat district rival Breckinridge County Lady Tigers in three sets 25-10, 24-26, 25-19 on Aug 12. After rolling through the Lady Tigers 25-10 during the first game, the Lady Tigers forced the third game after coming back and winning 26-24 in the second game. “We fell apart,” junior setter Rebecca Clark said about the second game. “I don’t know what happened. We just messed up everything and we played like we did in seventh grade.” During the first game,

Meade County dominated the Lady Tigers by jumping to a 12-4 lead after sophomore outside hitterLeah Cannady served three straight points. The Lady Waves then went up 18-6 before finishing off the game by outscoring Breckinridge 7-3. The Lady Tigers fought back in the second match and built an 8-2 lead before Smith called a timeout. “They got cocky and they got lazy,” she said of her Meade County team. “I don’t think they were tired and they totally took the second game lightly.” The Lady Waves had plenty of unforced errors during the game, including See RECORD, page B4

Allmendinger wants to be top guy for Petty By Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week A.J. Allmendinger hasn’t enjoyed many NASCAR weekends as successful as the one he just completed in Watkins Glen, N.Y. The Los Gatos, Calif., native was highly successful in the Champ Car World Series, but the Sprint Cup Series has been a struggle since he joined Team Red Bull in 2007 and Richard Petty Motorsports in 2009. Allmendinger finished 24th in the 2009 Sprint Cup point standings and currently resides in 22nd place. Just days after Petty

and Foster Gillett of RPM announced that Allmendinger’s contract as driver of the No. 43 Ford has been extended, he celebrated by finishing fourth in the Heluva Good at the Glen. His career best, by the way, was a third in the 2009 Daytona 500. “We are definitely not where we want to be ... right now, but I see the potential and want to keep building a team around me that continues to get better,” said Allmendinger, 28. “We want to reach a point where we See TOP, page B4


With Kasey Kahne leaving after this season, A.J. Allmendinger wants to be the “top guy” at Richard Petty Motorports.

Those who have worked out all summer long in the heat, the payoff is finally here for Meade Countians to show off their physical prowess. Tomorrow, the Meade County Activities Center (MAC) will hold its first ever “mini-triathlon” which tests endurance skills in swimming, biking and running. This first ever event is to promote the Meade County Activities Center and overall health and wellness of Meade County. As of Wednesday, there have been 81 competitors signed up. Including three-person teams, there will be close to 100 participants during the event held at the Doe Valley Swim and Tennis Club. “This event only reaffirms that this community wants a fitness center,” said the triathlon coordinator Meg King. “The community response has been great. Everyone has been really enthused and it shows the spirit of fitness in the community.” This is just another addition to the MAC events of the past year. Earlier in the year there was a MAC Gala where Kentucky pro golfer Kenny Perry spoke, and the week after the Kentucky Derby there was the Derbypalooza 5K run/walk. “All the MAC events have been so successful,” King said. “This will just be another addition.” Though the event is new, its roots go back nearly 10 years ago when a group of friends had a Jimbo DeVries Triathlon on the same Doe Valley area course. King suggested to John DeVries to reintroduce the triathlon as a MAC event. “He was all for it,” King said. “It was a fun event then and I think it will be a fun event (tomorrow).” The 11 directors of MAC were on board and now there are more than 25 volunteers helping the event tomorrow. “So many people have helped,” King said. “Stephanie Parker has been a big help with registration. Of course, John DeVries has too. There have been so many people involved that have brought their talents to help this event.” The triathlon is slated to start at 7:30 a.m. tomorrow morning at the Doe Valley Swim and Tennis Club.

Hydration is critical to ward off heat illness in athletes Recent U.S. heat wave prompts calls for regular water consumption during vigorous activities Submitted by AOSSM
 Rosemont, Ill. — As America’s young people gear up for organized football, soccer and baseball practices

this August, record high temperature forecasts have prompted medical experts to call for drinking water: more, early and often. “To stay active and healthy, young athletes need plenty of the right kinds of fluids,” said Marjorie J. Albohm, MS, ATC, a member of the STOP Sports Injuries campaign and president of the National Athletic Trainer’s Association. “Staying hydrated is extremely important because water is

what delivers oxygen to the muscles, providing fuel for grueling summer workouts.” The STOP Sports Injuries campaign launched this spring by the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) and a coalition of other health-related organizations—aims to arm the public with information and tools to prevent, recognize and treat the long-term consequences of sports overuse and trauma

Breckinridge at home Sept. 9 starting at 7:30 p.m.

“They’re a really good team,” Smith said of Caldwell. “They have nine seniors on the team. They’re really experienced and have great coaching. We really came together though. They served well, they covered each other, and they did everything perfect.” During the opening round of the single elimination gold bracket, Meade County lost to Tates Creek 25-23, 25-20. “They carried it over to the Tates Creek game, but Tates was just too much for us,” Smith said. “We did awesome though. I’m really happy with the way we played.” Senior middle hitter Tiffany Filburn had a monster weekend with a total of 42 kills, 13 digs, nine aces and eight blocks. Junior setter Rebecca Clark had 65 assists, seven aces and three kills, and junior outside hitter Rachel Pow-

injuries to children. “Whenever young people are outside playing or practicing in the heat, they need lots of fluids to replace what their bodies are losing through sweating,” said leading heat illness researcher and professor of kinesiology at the University of Connecticut, Doug Casa, PhD, ATC, FNATA, FACSM. “If the body isn’t replenished, dehydration can occur and increase the risk of a serious heat illness

like heat stroke.” Casa, Albohm and other sports experts warn coaches, trainers, parents and athletes to diligently monitor their conditions, being especially mindful of the symptoms of heat illness: • Chills • Dark-colored urine • Dizziness • Dry mouth
 • Headaches
 • Muscle cramps
 • Thirst 
 • Weakness.

Those young people just beginning summer practices for organized sports—like football, baseball and soccer—are particularly vulnerable to suffering some form of heat illness. Casa recommends that young people drink at least eight ounces of fluids—such as water, juice, or sports drinks like Gatorade— before beginning outdoor activities, and up to five ounces more every 20 minutes during the activity.

Record From page B1 several net touches, which gave the Lady Tigers the lead, 24-23, late in the game. Breckinridge County closed out the second game with two straight points to win, 26-24. “I’m trying to block that game out,” Smith said. “They (the referees) were really watching the net. That’s something that I don’t know how to fix other than just work on not touching the net.” The Lady Waves bounced back in the third set and held Breckinridge County to only one lead the entire game. Meade County had a 6-3 run to win the game and sophomore defensive specialist Mikhaela Perry ended the game with an ace. She finished with six digs, two aces and two kills. “I know she’s a sophomore, but I’m so confident in her,” Smith said. “Her serving was awesome and she really made the difference of the game.” Meade County is now 14-0 against Breckinridge County since entering the same district in 2004. “Us beating Breckinridge County since forever is not a good thing,” Smith said “Now we have it in our heads that we can’t lose to them. It’s very possible we can lose to them since we have to play them two more times.” Meade County will play

Top From page B1 compete for a win every weekend and hopefully, eventually, get a championship. That is the goal.” A championship is certainly a long way off, but Allmendinger doesn’t shy away from the task at hand. He said he talked to other teams, but decided to remain at RPM, in part, because of Kasey Kahne’s departure at season’s end. Allmendinger wants to be “the guy.” “Yeah, that was a big selling point,” he said. “I am ready to be a leader of this race team. It’s something that I thrive on and excites me every day to know that I can be the guy. I have the confidence in myself to know I can lead this team and represent it to the best

Meade makes the gold bracket at Apollo The Lady Waves competed in the Summer Slam at Owensboro Apollo last weekend and went 2-3 and made the gold bracket elimination round. They lost their opening game to Warren East in three sets (15-25, 25-18, 2516) and then rattled off two straight wins against Hancock County (25-14, 25-19) and Henderson County (15-25, 25-15, 26-24). “We still made a lot of the same mistakes the first three games,” Meade County head coach Jennifer Smith said. “Then against Caldwell, everything just clicked. They lost, but they probably played the best game all season.” Against No. 20 ranked Caldwell County, the Lady Waves lost 25-20, 25-19. of its abilities.” After finishing fourth at Watkins Glen, Allmendinger said, “The car was really strong all day. We didn’t have anything for the ‘42’ (Juan Montoya). He was on another planet. But for the others (runner-up Kurt Busch and third-place Marcos Ambrose), I felt like maybe we had something for them. “It was a solid day. It was a good day in the pits. We need to build on this. It’s really cool to sign a multi-year deal and have a great weekend.” Monte Dutton has covered motorsports for The Gaston (N.C.) Gazette since 1993.

Paws Corner By Fifi Rodriguez Cat’s Aim Is Off the Mark

DEAR PAW’S CORNER: We adopted a 2-year-old spayed female cat. “Trudy” has a problem when she pees in her litter box. She tends to spray over the top of the box. Someone suggested a covered cat box, so I found two at garage sales. She still pees to the back, and the pee drips down the back of the box where it clips on. Why is she doing this? I use litter she likes. Is this just a habit, or should I take her to the vet and get checked out? We really don’t want to take her back just because of this. She is so sweet. Is there anything else we can do? — Linda D., via e-mail DEAR LINDA: It’s always worth a trip to the veterinarian just to rule out any health problems. If Trudy checks out OK, there may not be much else to do after that. I’ve seen cats before that sprayed over the top of their litter boxes. In one case it was a dominant male in a three-cat household that clearly wanted everyone to know this was his box. He refused to use a covered box and would pee outside of the one that was installed, so his owner put the old box back and built a splash guard — cardboard wrapped with foil — that drained back into the litter box. That cat loved spraying on the splash guard all the more because of the sound of water hitting the tinfoil. Trudy does not appear to have this problem. She’s not refusing her litter box, which is very good. Don’t take her back because of this minor issue. If the veterinarian doesn’t find anything wrong, continue to rinse the litter box top after every cleaning, and perhaps rig a splash-guard system that prevents the urine from collecting in the rim.

Celebrity Extra By Cindy Elavsky

Q: One of my favorite reality shows is “The Real Housewives” series on Bravo. I especially love Bethenny Frankel on the New York series, and I wondered if that show and/ or Bethenny would be back? — Michele M., Bel Air, Md. A: I spoke with Bethenny recently, and she told me she has no plans to return to the “Real Housewives.” In her words: “I very highly doubt I will go back to ‘Housewives.’ I don’t see any reason or upside for that.” Besides, Lindsay Pulsipher Bethenny is pretty busy these days as a new mom, a newlywed and promoting her “Body by Bethenny” workout DVD. And if you are wondering how she shed all that baby weight, it’s simple: “[The weight] came off afterward, because I wasn’t extreme about dieting nor had I binged while pregnant. Just be balanced before, during and after, and treat your diet like a bank account, and you will have no issue.” Q: I really love the addition of Lindsay Pulsipher on “True Blood,” but this makes me doubt the potential re-emergence of “FlashForward,” since Lindsay played teenaged Charlie in one of the final scenes’ flash-forwards. Should I give up on the dream of “FlashForward” being picked up by another network? — Fred J., via e-mail A: I am sad to report that I think yes, the dream might be over. Many fans, including myself, were drawn into the exciting series and had hoped that maybe TNT or AMC would save it from extinction. When I asked Lindsay about the possibility, she wasn’t super hopeful of a “FlashForward” resurrection. “There hasn’t been any talk of that, that I know of, unfortunately,” Lindsay tells me. “I know a lot of people really loved that show, and I think it had amazing potential to be really great next season. Unfortunately, I have not heard anything, but you never know -- if another cable network wants to pick it up, that would be amazing!” Q: What happened to the NBC drama series “Trauma”? One week it was on, the next it was gone. Will it be back? — Judy, Waverly, Ohio A: “Trauma,” a medical drama that centers on a group of paramedics in San Francisco, was officially canceled by the network this past May due to low ratings. READERS: A few months back, a reader wrote in to ask who costarred with Mariette Hartley in the series of cute, bickering husband-and-wife commercials. I created a contest asking you readers to help, and from those who answered correctly, five would win an autographed copy of Mariette Hartley’s autobiography, “Breaking the Silence.” After sifting through hundreds of submissions, I have randomly drawn five winners: Diane L. of Whitesboro, N.Y.; Trish C. of Waldorf, Md.; Barbara C. of Palm Springs, Calif.; Edward A. of Woodbury, Conn.; and Gordon D. (via e-mail). They, along with many of you who wrote in, knew the answer was James Garner. Thank you all for entering! Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Last Week’s Solutions

• Conservative author and commentator William F. Buckley Jr., a graduate of Yale University, once made the following controversial remark: “I’d rather entrust the government of the United States to the first 400 people listed in the Boston telephone directory than to the faculty of Harvard University.” • The Goodyear company, known today for its automobile tires, was originally founded to produce rubber clothing and, oddly, musical instruments. • Ellen Axson Wilson is reported to have exchanged approximately 1,400 love letters with her husband, President Woodrow Wilson, during their marriage. • You might be surprised to learn that in 1952, the CIA conducted a study of UFO sightings, and concluded that the objects were a threat to national security. The report stated, “the reports of [sightings] convince us that there is something going on that must have immediate attention.” • It’s been reported that the world’s oldest piece of chewing gum is more than 9,000 years old. After that long, though, I wonder how they could tell what its original use was. • Thought for the Day: “I thoroughly disapprove of duels. If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand and lead him to a quiet place and kill him.” -- Mark Twain (c) 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This could be the time to try soothing whatever bad feelings might be lingering ‘twixt and among colleagues, friends or family members. But be sure you do so without favoring any side. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) An idea is only an idea until you put that clever Bovine mind to work to develop it from concept to substance. This could lead to something rewarding, both emotionally and monetarily. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) The early part of the week could have some disconcerting moments, but approaching them with a calm, unruffled attitude goes a long way toward helping to get things nicely settled down. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Getting used to change continues to mark much of the week. But accepting what you have to do makes adapting that much easier. A welcome visitor could turn up sooner than expected. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Learning how to live with a decision is a challenge, but one you Leos and Leonas could really enjoy. You’ll also be pleased to see your social life take that upsurge you’ve been hoping for. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Use your perceptive Virgo instinct to help you see the positive aspects of what, at first, appears to be a disappointment. You could find that it proves to be quite the contrary. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your ability to maintain a balance between sense and sentiment once again helps you sort through apparently conflicting choices and ultimately arrive at the right decision. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Before you seek the advice of colleagues about a potential career move, you might be better off getting counsel from someone who won’t be affected by the choices you make. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) It can be a challenging week for some relationships if the normal give-and-take flow changes with one side doing most of the giving and the other the taking. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A new opportunity could bring with it much anticipation along with some anxiety. Take time to sort out your options as well as your emotional considerations. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Are you sure you have all the facts you need to let that matter move to another level? Don’t be rushed into a decision unless and until you feel it’s the right thing to do. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Pace yourself as you prepare to take on that more demanding project. Be careful not to let your energy reserves drain away. Take time to relax with people close to you. BORN THIS WEEK: You have the ability to see both sides of a situation. You would do well as a counselor or a judge. (c) 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.

This office has received a letter from the KENTUCKY STATE POLICE Driver Testing Department that they are presenting a regulation to the State Personnel Board, outlining a plan to furlough state driver testing employees a total of six days for Fiscal Year 2011. The six days include three common days during which state driver testing will be closed that are adjacent to existing state holiday weekends for Meade County: • Friday, September 2, 2010 (Labor Day Weekend) • Friday, November 12, 2010 (Veteran’s Day Weekend) • Friday, May 27, 2011 (Memorial Day Weekend) In addition, the driver testing employees will be furloughed for one day each in the months of October 2010, March 2011, and June 2011. What this means for the Meade County Office is that our driver testing on Friday’s will be affected. There will be certain Friday’s that we will not have a driver examiner available. We realize this will be an inconvenience, and apologize to the citizens of Meade County. If you have any questions concerning this matter, please feel free to contact my office at 422-4961. Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience to this situation.

Local anglers to compete in tournament on the Ohio River By Casey Tolliver The News Standard

10th Annual J.W.R. Memorial Hosted by:

Meade Co. Archers

August 21, 2010 • OHIO RIVER All teams will register and weigh-in at the Meade Co. Sportsman Club located in the Meade Co. Fairgrounds •ALL TEAMS MUST TRAILER TO AND FROM• Legal launch sites – West Point, Brandenburg, Wolf Creek, Concordia, Yellow Bank

Normally, bows and arrows are equated to hunting. But Meade County residents will have the opportunity this weekend to showcase their bow skills in a different outdoor recreation — fishing. The 10th Annual J.W.R. Memorial Bowfishing Tournament, being held tomorrow will give local bowfishers the chance to compete, but not lose sight of the thrill of the sport. “It’s a fun shoot, we’re not taking it too serious,” tournament organizer Lee Wardrip said. Despite how complex bowfishing seems, Wardrip insists that it’s easier than it looks. “A lot of people think it’s hard. When you bow hunt, you use sights. When you bowfish, you don’t. You just draw back and instinctively shoot. The thing is to aim low. If you miss, you’re going to shoot over it,” he said. Some bowhunters go all out — splurging on the latest hunting related gadgets and gizmos and pouring vast amounts of money to support their outdoor endeavors. However, Wardrip said, expensive and up-to-date equipment isn’t necessary for those interested in bowfishing. “You can go to a pawn shop and get the cheapest bow you can buy or you can go out and get an expensive one. Your bow is going to get wet, get stepped on. Your equipment is going to get ru-

Anglers will attack the Ohio River this weekend during the 10th Annual J.W.R. Memorial Bowfishing Tournament. ined,” he explained. Wardrip’s father-in-law began the tournament a decade ago as a tribute to his father. After his father-in-law passed the torch to Wardrip and his brother-in-law, Eric Richeson, a change of location was decided. Participants in the tournament had to put in at a boat ramp in Cloverport, Ky. That changes this year as contestants have the option of putting in at several different locations throughout Meade County. Launching sites are located at West Point, Brandenburg, Wolf Creek, Concordia and Yellowbank. Bowfishers will be taking aim at types of “rough fish”, including buffalo fish, gar and different types of carp — including types of carp including silver carp, bighead carp and the invasive Asian carp. Participants are permitted to submit their 10 biggest fish, but of the tally, only four Asian carp are allowed. Registration for the tournament, which is being hosted

by Meade County Archers, begins at 6 p.m. at the Meade County Sportsman Club located at the Meade County Fairgrounds. The cost is $40 per two or three person team. Teams can also sign up for the big fish competition for $20 per team with 100 percent payback and big gar for $10 per team with 100 percent payback. Door prizes will also be offered. Not only is the tournament a memorial, it will also serve as a source of bragging rights. “Some people, will say they shot so many over the weekend. This way we can see who’s telling the truth and who’s not,” Wardrip said with a laugh. Strict bowfishers looking for hard-nosed competition may be disappointed. “This tournament is a memorial, it’s supposed to be fun,” Wardrip said. “If you want to be like that, this is probably not the tournament you need to be at. We’re just here to have fun.”

In last week’s issue of The News Standard, we ran a story about Aug. 7’s Keith Kesterson Memorial shoot. We failed to recognize the memorial shoot also commemorated Cale Brown who passed away nearly 13 years ago. The shoot took place at the Cale Brown Archery Range in Yellowbank Wildlife Management Area. Also in one of the story’s photos we misidentified Tony Brown as Anthony Brown. We apologize for errors and any confusion.

Local comedians bring the laughs to soccer fundraiser By Jennifer Corbett The News Standard

It was a night of laughs at Meade County High School last Friday as three local comedians stopped by to put a smile on people’s faces and raise money for the MCHS soccer teams. The comedians, Donna Watts, Big John Richardson and Bob Batch were a part of a two-hour Comedy Caravan show that made a stop in Meade County. Watts was the first performer of the night. Even with her small frame, she brought big giggles by joking about dating a guy with a camouflage truck and not realizing it was quail season. With his dreadlocks and use of satire, Richardson didn’t leave anything out. He spoke about how he overcame adversities in life with his sense of wittiness. Batch brought his quirky humor that has showcased on the Today Show, Good Morning America and the Showtime Comedy Club. He joked about some common Kentucky phrases by holding up signs that said “momonyms,” “gretbigo,” and “addleduit.” He even gave the male audience members some advice: “there are five rules to getting married. Number one, she makes the rules. Number five, she THE NEWS STANDARD/JENNIFER CORBETT changes the rules. That is all you need to know.” Profits from the evening benefited the Lady FROM LEFT TO RIGHT: Donna Watts, Big John Richardson and Bob Batch perform in Meade County High School’s amphitheater last Friday as a fundraiser for the Lady Waves and Greenwave Soccer Boosters.

‘The Karate Kid’ is inspirational family entertainment Shawn Hughes Jr. Old & New Movie Reviews This is part 2 of a three-part series in which I take a look at three classic children’s movies that I, regrettably, have never seen until now. “The Karate Kid” has just become my favorite movie of the year. No, I’m not talking about the Jackie Chan/Jaden Smith remake that came out ear-

lier this year (although I have heard good things about it). I’m talking about the original 1984 film directed by John G. Avildsen, best known for directing the similarly-themed “Rocky.” “The Karate Kid” is an underdog story about teenager Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) who is forced to learn karate as a means of self-defense against a group of street punks with a grudge, ultimately facing off against them in a major karate tournament. Don’t let the simple-sounding premise fool you — this film is all about characters

and characterization. Ralph Macchio is believable as a street-smart Jersey boy with a heart, and is a likeable protagonist who will have you cheering him on. But the real star of the show is the incredible Mr. Miyagi (played by the late Noriyuki “Pat” Morita), whose indomitable demeanor and reserved stoicism make him one of the most captivating characters I’ve seen in a long time. He’s the kind of character who says a lot with only a few words, and his methods of training are

unorthodox, effective, and memorable. In short, he always steals the show whenever he’s onscreen. But most captivating of all is the interaction that these two share with each other over the course of the movie. It starts off as the standard teacher-student relationship, but as time goes by it becomes increasingly evident that Mr. Miyagi is becoming a father-figure for Daniel, which is something that I personally find very touching. The film also benefits

from an excellent script that carries it effortlessly from one moment to the next while offering believable, cheese-free dialogue that’s both meaningful and memorable — something that’s virtually unheard of for a film of its type. Despite the film’s perceived target audience, nothing is ever dumbeddown or over-the-top in its execution; everything is presented in such a believably realistic manner, which is easily one of the film’s strongest points. On that note, there is one small disclaimer: as

it turns out, this isn’t quite the “children’s movie” I thought it was, and so perhaps “comingof-age” might be a better descriptor. It’s rated PG, but contains a few potty words and several fight scenes that might frighten younger viewers. But for everyone else, this is inspirational family entertainment at its very best, and it will leave you wishing that we all had a Mr. Miyagi there to show us the way. Final grade: **** (out of four)

The Ambrose Meador Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), were guests of Mary Ann Tobin on August 4, 2010. Tobin, curator of a bird sanctuary, was the recipient of the AMR State Award 20092010. Jane Marlow Willis was the regent of this project before her untimely death. Tobin hatched a Kestrel egg that she name “Jane Marlow.” The bird is a small European falcon noted for its habit of hovering in the air against the wind. When it was time to release the bird into the air DAR members and others were there to witness it’s maiden flight. Tobin told watchers that she gives her released birds the option of flying away or to stay. DAR visited Tobin’s home and enjoyed seeing other birds such as a baby owl, “Woody Woodpecker”, the pelican that hugs Tobin with its large bill, and many other birds. Several young ladies served refreshments and a huge cake that was decorated with two birds, one being the Kestrel bird, “Jane Marlow.” It was also an honor to have Jane’s aunt, Debbie Chamblis, from Hardinsburg, Ky., there. Thanks to our gracious hostess for having this wonderful event in memory of Jane Marlow Willis.
