Fiscal court focuses on county roads approval once again By Brian Graves The News Standard

“(Our consultant) says it’s perfectly legal and we could do it.”

Roads and subdivisions once again dominated the discussions and actions of Meade County Fiscal Court as they met in regular session Tuesday night. County Planning Director Tony Colletta began by presenting the court a list of four subdivisions that had received extensions on road

- Meade County Judge/Excecutive Harry Craycroft completion deadlines. Colletta noted that Magistrate Herbert Chism had indicated these extensions may have exceeded the oneyear period allowed by the county road ordinance. “I reviewed this, the coun-

ty attorney reviewed this, and it does say these extensions must be reviewed annually,” Colletta said. “We were accurately corrected.” The court was asked to readjust the extensions to terminate on May 31, 2011.

Developers are required to post bonds so that should they not meet their deadlines, the county receives the bond and takes over completion of the roads. Chism asked Colletta how the extension time frames are determined. The county planner said developers generally ask for more than necessary, but for this last group he and the developers tried to deter-

mine time frames that were reasonable given the extension of Highway 313. “That was my mistake,” Colletta said. “When I asked Fiscal Court to make those extensions beyond a year — Fiscal Court has jurisdiction to approve things beyond their tenure — we should have limited it to one year.” The magistrates unanimously approved the revised extensions.

A dandy day in Andyville

Chism then asked about the road at Whelan Ponds subdivision which the county partially took in last month. “After talking with the road superintendent and reviewing the final inspection, it’s clear it states on that inspection we can’t take that road in with the cul-de-sac not being completed or the See FISCAL, Page A9

Gov. Steve Beshear is calling BRAC a bigger economic development than Toyota, expressing some criticism of the process by which the federal government Steve Beshear chose states for “Race to the Top” funding, and says Kentucky’s economic signs are looking brighter.

Day long celebration commemorates Meade County community, neighbors, and heritage By Casey Tolliver The News Standard Most people outside Meade County don’t even know where Andyville is. Even when driving through it, it’s easy to miss. It’s one of those “blink and you’ll miss it”

type places. But last weekend, the tightly woven community thrust itself in the limelight when members celebrated the heritage of and pride of being from Andyville — and each other. Looming clouds and the threat of rain couldn’t put a

damper on high spirits. “It’s an Andyville Day state of mind and we’ve got to stay this way all the time,” Andyville Day creator and organizer Maury Stull, owner of Stull’s Country Store said. The store is an Andyville landmark and served as the backdrop of

the celebration. The biennial celebration, which commemorates all things and people pertaining to the community in northwestern/ central Meade County, began in 2006 as a party held by Stull

Archeologists really ‘dig’ Meade County By Gerry Fisher The News Standard The Meade County Historical and Archaeological Preservation Society (MCHAPS) and The Falls of the Ohio Archaeological Society (FOAS) planned a combined expedition to an important multi-component prehistoric site in Meade County. The weekend trip was to begin Saturday morning Aug. 21, and extend through Sunday Aug. 22. The purpose of the expedition was to make a surface collection of artifacts, flint and fire cracked rock, and the placement of several shovel probes, commonly called test pits. This site location is undisclosed See DIG, Page A4

Adults escape trailer fire due to smoke detectors Submitted by Meade Co. Fire Protection District Tragedy was avoided in an early morning trailer fire located at 600 Bruner Road on Thursday Sept. 2 due to working smoke detectors in the residence. Three smoke detectors located in a mobile home that sounded during the 3 a.m. fire are credited in saving four members of Gary and Tammy Gould Family.

Ekron Fire Department with automatic aid from Meade County Fire District and Meade County EMS brought eight fire apparatus, one ambulance and approximately 25 emergency responders to the early morning fire located off Old Ekron Road. Confusing reports of the fires extended and progressed prior to arrival, and brought grave concern to first arriving

units on the scene. “When we were responding to the scene, Meade County Dispatch relayed information that the trailer was fully involved and collapsing. When we arrived and found the fire had not broken through the windows and roof yet, we had an opportunity to save something,” Meade County Fire District Chief Larry Naser said. With an excellent team

effort, Ekron and Meade County Firefighters made entry into the trailer, found the seat of the fire and made a successful interior attack to extinguish the fire. The majority of the fire damage was confined to the kitchen and living room with the remainder of the home being affected by smoke and heat damage. The four occupants of the mobile home were

Local Dems rally around Greer, party By Brian Graves The News Standard Meade County Democrats gathered Friday night to rally around the party and pump up the faithful. In a page taken from politics of the past, party loyalists got together at the Farm Bureau Building for a night of barbeque and stem-winding speeches. The event was in support of the reelection bid of State Representative Jeff Greer and brought in three of the heaviest hitters in the state Democratic Party. Gov. Steve Beshear, State House Speaker Greg Stumbo, and iconic former Senator Wendell Ford lent their voices in support of Greer and all the candidates representing the party in this year’s elections. Legendary Kentucky basketball star Kenny “Sky” Walker also lent his celebrity status to the cause. Greer praised the governor speaking of how he had brought Meade Countians into his office and had listened when concerns of the county had been brought to his attention.


Bill Jipin watches as Former U.S. Sen. Wendell Ford signs one of Jipin’s handmade canes. He also praised the leadership of the speaker of the House. “I’ll take him going toe to toe with (Senate President) David Williams any day of the week,” he said to cheers. Greer also included praise for all the local candidates and said, “Come November, we’re going to be victorious.” Stumbo said he was attending because anytime Greer asked him to do something, he might as well go ahead and do it. “I’ll end up having to do it anyway,” Stumbo said

with a laugh. “When Jeff Greer got to Frankfort, he became a ten-pack player,” Stumbo said. “He’s chairman of the most important committee in the House, he’s well respected by his colleagues, but more than that he’s passed some of the most far-reaching legislation in this past session.” “He is not just large in frame,” the speaker added, “he’s large in heart.” Ford took his opportunity to take off on Republican senatorial candidate Rand Paul. “Oh, gosh, I want to talk

about Rand Paul,” Ford said with a grin. “He wants to slash and burn the Constitution. He doesn’t like the people who oversee and scrutinize the doctors that serve you, so he organized one himself. He is president, his wife is vice-president and his father-in-law is treasurer. They’ve got five members and now he inspects himself…like a fox guarding a hen house,” Ford said. “He went down to Fancy Farm and said he was scared to death they’d throw a beer on him,” he added. “If he’d been in my county, we could have.” Beshear talked of the county’s tradition saying, “You’re not going to let the people who made it what it is down, are you? You’re not going to.” “Our job between now and Nov. 2 is to tell the people of Meade County, tell the people of Kentucky not only why we’re where we are, but what we’re doing to come out of it,” Beshear said. The rally attracted nearly 100 persons who also participated in an auction in support of the Meade County Democratic Party.

Brady resigns as Meade County Animal Control By Brian Graves The News Standard Meade County Animal Control Officer Tom Brady has submitted his resignation effective Nov. 1. Meade County Judge/Executive Harry Craycroft read Brady’s letter at the end of Tuesday night’s meeting saying he had just received it prior to the meeting. “I have enjoyed my position as animal control officer and feel I have helped make a dif-

ference in the community and at the animal shelter itself,” Brady’s letter stated. “I also felt I was a voice for the animals, first and foremost. The position of animal control was not and is not just to pick up stray dogs, but to look after the welfare of all animals large and small.” Craycroft said Brady had done a “fantastic job” during his tenure in the office. “Not many realize this is not just a day job, this is a job that you can be called out any-



L E E-


time,” the Judge/Executive noted. “Tom has been able to get animals adopted, and he especially took horses he found in bad situations and finding them good homes,” he added. “It’s amazing how much he did in this difficult position,” Craycroft said. He noted Brady had been contemplating retirement as he reached the age of 65, so the decision was not totally unexpected. Fiscal Court will advertise

the position and make a decision at its October meeting. Magistrates seemed to suggest they would support the promotion of Brady’s assistant, Jasper Hardesty, to the position. “He’s totally qualified and has had all the training,” Craycroft said. County Attorney Margaret Matney held the court from any action Tuesday saying it would be better to ensure the proper hiring procedures was followed.

outside and safe before emergency personnel arrived on scene. Speaking with the Gould family, all gave credit to the working smoke detectors that gave them time to escape. The cause of the fire has been ruled as accidental and started in the kitchen around the stove. The American Red Cross responded to the scene and are providing the family with assistance

in the form of lodging and other assistance. Through Aug. 31 more than 1200 Americans have died in fires in the United States. Kentucky has seen several fire deaths since January. Fire officials urge residents to have an exit plan for your home as well as working smoke detectors in your home to improve your opportunity to survive a fire should one occur in your home.

“Quantum Leap”

Fall is my favorite season of the year. Though I may be speaking a little prematurely on the topic since temperatures have still been in the upper 80s this week, but it still feels that fall is well upon us. Finally I’ve been able to open the window and give my central air a hiatus from a rough and tough sweltering summer. With football inundating our Fridays … Saturdays… and yes, Sundays, I get atwitter about the change of season. I love the color of fall leaves, the smells that fall brings, drinking warm

motely interesting to pass the day. And Sundays are now my favorite day as I plan out my fantasy football lineup and prepare for another Detroit Lions loss — ugh, don’t get me started on last week’s game. Fall is a time where I put on a sweater and head out to a soccer game to relax and enjoy the environment. The sad thing about the fall is it comes and goes all too quickly. Once we have a reprieve from the heat we barrel into freezing temperatures and once again we have to seal up our house and turning up the heat. But I’ve learned to enjoy this brief moment of the year, before we have to bunker down for the winter and prepare for the next ice storm or, heck, even a tornado. I guess that’s Kentucky weather for you.

Entrepreneur’s hard work could dissolve Jim Waters Bluegrass Beacon Lexington entrepreneur Paul Spicer faced a big decision 24 years ago. “I could be an employee and make $60,000 to $65,000 a year — just like UPS (employees) — or I could make $250,000 a year,” Spicer said. Spicer is now one of 191 independent contractors for FedEx Ground in Kentucky. These contractors employ nearly 600 Kentuckians. Spicer holds nothing against UPS. “They have a very positive image across the country,” he said. “It’s just that I wanted to do better than ‘OK.’ ” Spicer said FedEx made his dreams come true by allowing him to own a business rather than just work for one. “Twenty-four years ago, I couldn’t even imagine where I am now,” he said. “I had goals. I wanted to be certain things and do certain things. But it turned out much better than I thought.” Yet, the state’s top lawenforcement officer wants

The News Standard is an award-winning, weekly newspaper in Meade County, Ky. It is a proud member of the Kentucky Press Association and the Meade County Area Chamber of Commerce.

But Big Brown’s real problem: It’s stuck. Its dilemma vividly portrays how big labor’s goals of unionization and an entrepreneur’s drive to succeed without the Teamsters mix about like oil and water. If UPS tried to change its model to include independent contractors, the union backlash would be severe. So it’s resorted to using government to try and diminish FedEx’s success. Conway’s lawsuit involves more than just UPS versus FedEx: It attacks the free-market system. “It seems like every time a small guy like me has opportunity to do more than just ‘ok,’ the state comes in and seems to tell everyone else through its policies: It’s okay if you’re just ‘OK,’ ” Spicer said. “But guys like me want to do better than ‘OK.’ ” And they ought to have the support of Kentucky’s leaders in doing so.

cess unfair, does it? It surely doesn’t call for a lawsuit, does it? It’s not just happenstance that UPS — FedEx’s main competitor — chose many years ago to unionize, which Spicer believes hurt it. “When there were strikes, I talked to guys in Maine who relied on the company to ship fresh lobsters nextday air,” Spicer said. “When a strike happened, many of those guys lost their businesses. It’s like I tell my five daughters, ‘For every action, there will always be a reaction.’ There cannot be a nonreaction to an action. Something has to give.” If Conway’s lawsuit succeeds, an unpleasant reaction faces FedEx and other companies employing independent contractors. UPS has survived and thrived for 100 years. But like any company, it doesn’t necessarily relish stiff competition. In fact, it’s quietly trying to get its own federal bailout by using its significant influence via lobbying and campaign contributions in Washington to get Congress to change laws that benefit FedEx’s business model. It’s not one of UPS’s greater moments.

to take all this away from Spicer and his fellow independent contractors. Attorney General Jack Conway filed a lawsuit in Franklin Circuit Court on Sept. 2 that could deny FedEx the freedom to classify its drivers as independent contractors. Conway doesn’t just want to force Spicer and other contractors to become employees. He wants to penalize FedEx for violating unemployment-compensation and tax-withholding policies — and force the company to pay $10 million. In the lawsuit, Conway accuses FedEx of cheating, labeling its operations “unfair trade practices.” But saying FedEx operates unfairly because it found an innovative, industry-changing way of delivering packages is like saying Harry the surgeon should not make more money than Terry the tire repairman. • Harry chose to pursue a medical career. Terry did not. • Harry chose to spend the money necessary to become a surgeon. Terry liked regular hours and working on tires. • Terry may regret not becoming a doctor. But that doesn’t make Harry’s suc-

loved spending time in the pool during the hot summer days and scurrying around the neighborhood late at night. Summer was freedom to me. But, that’s not true anymore for me. Summer just means unbearably hot temperatures and that’s about it — OK, I really like baseball. There’s no such thing as summer vacation to me anymore. That went out the window once I got a year-round job. While kids are playing outside in the summer, I’m cooped up in an office wishing I was 8-years-old again. Now on the other hand, fall is a time of excitement in my adult age. The school year brings new Meade County sports teams to light.

apple cider and feeling the crisp fall air on my nose while covering a football game. It’s just an overload of sensory bliss. Oh, and I love putting on sweaters rather than just sweating in the summer heat. I like saying ‘It’s comfortable out here,” while wearing a light jacket. It’s just a great season, from the weather to the outdoor activities. I wasn’t always like this. As a kid, I hated the fall. Fall meant going back to school and that the winter was quickly upon us. The days were getting shorter, I had homework to do, football practices made me too tired to have much of a social life. All-in-all, fall was a time of inconvenience and adjustment rather than savoring the pretty colors of a tree. When I was little, I


The article on the front page of the Sept. 3 News Standard regarding the feral cats in Muldraugh is somewhat misleading. There is no current spay or neuter of these animals, which would connotate adoption. They are being trapped by Muldraugh city employees and taken to the Meade County Animal Shelter where they are being promptly destroyed. Sometime (a few years) back, an organization called Alley Cats International came to Muldraugh and spayed or neutered all (most) of the stray cats in the city. Their ears were notched to signify that they were sterile and the agreement was that they would be allowed to roam free for the rest of their lives. Apparently, the City of Muldraugh has changed their collective minds on that agreement. This sad situation is yet another example of why responsible pet owners should spay or neuter their pets. Spay/neuter is the only way to control and reduce the population of unwanted animals. I’m a PINS member and my last paragraph says it all. You might want to research the subject a little further as I am led to believe the problem is with two or three large apartment complexes that have a rapid turnover of tenants. When the tenants leave they throw their “pets” away like the garbage. My letter is in no way is a criticism of the Animal Control Shelter. Tom and Jasper are animal lovers, and it breaks their hearts to have to destroy unwanted animals.

Letter to the Editor

There’s just something special about fall


W. Stewart Evans was the president of the Knoxville, Tenn. Businessmen’s Association during the late 1970s. Looking at the city’s downtown, he saw a dilapidated, rundown area that was doing nothing serving as a blight on the city. Evans, in his capacity as head of the local business group, found himself attending a workshop in Spokane, Wash. It was there he learned how that city took the “quantum leap” approach to revitalizing its downtown area. Spokane hosted the 1974 World’s Fair and while there seeing Spokane’s changed landscape and hearing of its success stories, Evans had the idea Knoxville could do the same. That “quantum leap” Evans imagined, despite some barriers and problems, eventually came to pass and took Knoxville to a new level of recognition and economic development. No one is suggesting Meade County host a World’s Fair, but maybe it’s time for some outof-the-box thinking when it comes to this area’s economic development. Right now, the city of Corydon’s best friends are the residents of Brandenburg who often go there to find a wider variety of shops and restaurants. We need the variety — and tax revenue — here. This is not a put down of the current businesses who call us home. We appreciate their faith in our area — many are family and neighbors — and hope county residents utilize their services and shops often. But, there is an awful lot of empty real estate with much of it along the main roads. And, as luck would have it, state and federal funds are pouring in because of the BRAC project that will greatly improve the area’s infrastructure. Along with those funds are the expectations of over 12,000 new area residents and a potential customer base any business would dream of having. The selling points to new business and industry are so strong, it seems inconceivable that selling Meade County could be much of a hard sell at all. Some might fear or mourn those vacant fields being filled with shops, theaters, grocery stores and industry. That fear would be quickly eliminated when the tax rolls and revenue rise allowing the tax rates and unemployment rates to fall. We hope local officials take advantage of what has every appearance of being a golden opportunity. Meade County and its cities should begin thinking big, thinking bold, and be ready to take the leap.

From page A1 and is referred to only by it’s Smithsonian number due to the potential for destruction by vandalizing looters. The group met at 8 a.m. Saturday morning with about 30 people driving as far a Henryville, Indiana and Lexington and Bardstown, Ky., to attend. On arrival at the meeting site a driving rain with lightning and thunder caused the trip to be postponed for a day. While this was a disappointment it did not dampen any of the archeologist’s enthusiasm. Sunday morning an eager although smaller group met and made the drive to the site. On arrival a field laboratory was established with a tent, table, and equipment to clean, catalog, and preserve any artifacts or other cultural materials recovered. Field forms and site survey information was recorded for a future site report. GPS readings were taken at various locations, and a Datum (metal stake) was placed for future reference when other excursions to the site take place. Society members set up a tripod and level and established a magnetic north/south, and an east/west line intersecting at 90 degree angles. Fifty-by50 cememeter test pits were placed every 6 meters on the east west line. The archeologists began making a surface collection of materials including shards of pottery and pieces of fire cracked rock and flint that were placed in paper bags on which was written the site number issued in 1972, 15MD-215. This Smithsonian Institute site number was issued by the University of Kentucky in 1972, after it was surveyed and documented earlier by the University of Louisville Archaeological Survey (ULAS). The dirt from the test pits sifted through one-fourth mesh screens, proved nega-

Archeologists agree one of the most productive areas to dig are the refuse pits where the prehistoric people buried their garbage. This refuse is referred to as midden, and it is often times rich in cultural material. On Sunday, Rene Quintos and Rhonda Huff from Lexington and Bardstown respectively, represented FOAS, while Cindi Henning, Donna Brown, Susan and Mark Popham, Rachael Popham Brown, Rick Brown, Gerald Fischer, and four members of the Payneville Boy Scout Troop No. 181, John and Zack Straney and Steve and Brenden Ward also took part in the fieldwork, representing MCHAPS. When asked what they had learned about the prehistoric people that inhabited the site Zack and Brenden stated that they learned these people made pottery, ate deer, built fires and cooked the meat. They also splintered the long bones for marrow, and the shell fish found by Rhonda showed them that mussels were also utilized for food. The

vast quantities of fire cracked rock came from the cooking process, where rocks were heated to a high level, and water was poured on them to steam food, or the rocks were heated and dropped into pottery vessels containing water and other food stuff until the water boiled and the food was cooked. Dropping a hot rock into cold water causes the rocks to fracture, thus fire cracked rock is all that remains of the process. Donna Brown found a portion of a large flint knife, and several pieces of flint were found that were part of the artifact manufacturing process. Several pieces of artificially polished stone were found that are either manuports or fragments of artifacts. M-CHAPS is an independent association of archeologists, historians and genealogists that meet the first Monday of every month at 6 p.m. in the Meade County Public Library Annex. The meetings are free and open to the public. FOAS meets the second Saturday of each month at 2 p.m. in the Falls of the Ohio Interpretive Center. Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend both society meetings, and take part in our expeditions.

Dan Newton Divine Guidance Psalm 95: 7-8 says, “For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. to day if we will hear his voice, Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness.“ (KJV) It is an interesting coincidence that verses 7-11 of Psalm 95 are quoted almost verbatim in verses 7-11 of Hebrews 3. The two writers are both referring, of course,

to the 40 years of wandering by the children of Israel in the wilderness. The Hebrews reference contains an important insight on biblical inspiration. It is introduced by the words “the Holy Ghost saith“ (Heb. 3:7), showing that God was actually the real author of the psalm. Then, the same phrase (“to day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your hearts as in the provocation“) is quoted again in Hebrews 3:15, but this time it is introduced merely by “it is said.” Then, remarkably, it is quoted still a third time (Hebrews 4:7), where it tells us that God was “saying in David“ this grave warning. In

other words, the same Scripture was attributed both to David and to the Holy Spirit. Perhaps even more significantly, the phrase“ it is said “is seen to be equivalent to ‘God says.” All of this is a clear affirmation of the divine inspiration of the Old Testament Scriptures. Finally, the fact that the same warning (“Harden not your hearts“) is cited three times in the space of just 19 verses, all quoting the original warning in Psalm 95:8, must mean that God considers it extremely important that we harden not our hearts. It is possible that even a child of God can become so involved in doubts concerning God’s Word that

People will understand death more if they view it differently Randy Johnson Pastor’s Spotlight

A man was visiting a small foreign country and as he was walking down a cobble stone street he noticed a man in a shop making a rug. The man stood watching for a while and he could tell the rug maker loved what he was doing. The rug maker noticed the man watching and asked “may I help you sir?” “No” replied the man, I was just watching you make that rug. “I have a very special friend who is sick and I am making the rug especially for him” said the rug maker. The man noticed that

the rug was kind of grey, not much color and really nothing special. The rug maker noticed the puzzled look on the man’s face and said “is something wrong sir?” “No” replied the man, “I was just wondering why you are making such a plain looking rug for your sick friend”. “Oh, I see,” said the rug maker. “Come around here for a moment, I want to show you something.” The man walked over to where the rug maker was standing. Now he saw something different. The rug had nearly every color in the rain bow. “It’s beautiful,” said the man. “Yes, I get that a lot” the rug maker said.” “Most people passing my shop don’t think much of my rugs, they don’t see how beautiful they are be-

cause they are looking at the wrong side”. I have stood in the funeral home many times as the family gathered around their departed loved one. Much talk is made about the things their loved one did in this life. There is much sadness and grief. Sometimes I believe we tend to view death like the people passing by the shop of the rug maker, we see the wrong side. Heaven is a beautiful place with no more death, no more crying, no more pain and no more dying. I understand the grief of loosing a loved one and it can be a very difficult time in a person’s life. But we can understand it better if we stop and take a look at the other side. Randy Johnson is the pastor at Brandenburg Church of God.

The path to recovery, redemption is a joint effort between all parties David Yount Amazing Grace “I invite you to collaborate in your own redemption — indeed, to orchestrate it ... If you are on tolerably friendly terms with yourself and willing to confront your own inconsistencies, you will succeed, emerging a happier person on your own terms. That was my rash promise to readers of my book, “Spiritual Simplicity.” Following its publication in 1997, many readers complained to me that they had yet to make friends of themselves. No one senses this alienation from self more keenly than the many men and women who bear the burden of addiction and grapple with guilt. Victims of addiction are their own worst enemies. The New York Times Almanac reveals that as many as 88 million of our fellow Americans are either chemically dependent or living with someone who is. One of every four American families suffers from alcohol- or drug-related

problems. Millions more are prisoners of food, sex, spending, gambling, work and codependency. To say the least, they are not happy. Addicts aside, hardly an American family escapes alienation of affection: parents and children who no longer speak to each other and some spouses who live together but no longer communicate. Unless we are desperate, we tend to deny our need for redemption. Even faith-oriented people who acknowledge having fallen short of their creator ’s expectations (and their own) are inclined to rationalize their shortcomings as excusable. By contrast, addicts are desperate and actively seek redemption from what feels like a sickness of body and soul. Twelve-step recovery programs are based on the reality that redemption comes equally from within and without. Addicts must surrender to the help being offered. Must one believe in God to be redeemed? Clearly, Christians believe that the creator took upon himself the burden of saving us from ourselves and for himself.

In any case, believers and unbelievers share the same human condition and can share the same salvation. To that end, 12-step programs stress reliance on a “higher power” without defining the source of that power. To be saved from ourselves we need confidence that we are loved and empowered to rise above our predicaments. There are tragedies in life from which some of us do not fully recover. Death, to be sure, requires a final redemption. But in the midst of life there are always second chances and many redemptive moments. Redemption is a collaborative activity — cleansing, often purgative and occasionally harrowing. The psalmist was only reflecting the human condition we all share when he pleaded, “Out of the depths I have called to thee, O Lord; Lord, hear my voice” (Psalm 130). To his voice we join our own. David Yount is author of 14 books, including “Making a Success of Marriage” (Rowman and Littlefield). He answers readers at P.O. Box 2758, Woodbridge, VA 22195 and dyount31@verizon net.

he becomes useless to god and thus simply must be allowed to die in s spiritual wilderness, never knowing the great blessings of a life of obedient faith. “The status of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart.“ (Psalm 19: 8) Our hearts should rejoice at His Word, not be hardened against it.

From page A1 for residents of the small yet vibrant community. Turnout for this year’s event more than doubled Stull’s expectations. “I was amazed at how many people showed up. We had about 450 to 500 people,” Stull said. “It was the biggest event in Meade County that day.” People came from all the neighboring states and as far away as Florida and Washington, D.C., she added. Stull had originally anticipated that the event would draw between 200 and 250 people. On top of serving up burgers and hot dogs and what is considered by some as the best barbecue in the county, local vendors were able to set up booths at the celebration, to offer a variety of food and beverages. Local brewers Paul Priest, of Flaherty and Brian Johnson showed off their sudsy talents and sold homemade microbrews with a handcrafted, flavorful twist. The pair offered unique brews, including their highly popular bourbon barrel stout. Kathy Frans, who was born and raised a few miles down the road from Andyville in Little Bend, sold lemonade shake-ups at the event. Frans, who was a first-time vendor at the event, had attended the event in the past to

Maury Stull, owner of Andyville Country Store, enjoys visiting with neighbors in the Andyville area during the annual Andyville Day celebration. socialize with residents who have always been a part of her life. Frans’ fond memories harken back to days of the importance of community ties and relationships bonded by Andyville and personal relationships often stifled by the fast pace of modern life. The celebration affords longtime friends and Andyville residents a chance to catch up in a comfortable and entertaining setting, and is more like a big family gathering, she added. “With the way everything is today, nobody’s got any time for anybody anymore,” Frans said. “Heaven forbid, but the only time you get to see people is when somebody’s sick or at the funeral home because ev-

erybody’s too busy. It’s better to visit here than at the funeral home or at the hospital.” Frans remembers her family shopping at Stull’s during her childhood. Her parents would make weekly trips to the store for a variety of items ranging from groceries and old-fashioned candy for the kids to gasoline. Fond memories mesh with good times at Andyville Day, which is not just about fellowship, but also fun and games. In the longest cigar ash contest, Jeff Early, of Battletown, burned the competition with a 6-inch long ash, which took nearly an hour to produce. Ricky Sturgeon and Justin Arnold accurately tossed their way to the winner’s

podium of the cornhole tournament. A man known only as “Casper” and his partner, Shawn Griffith, were on their game that day as they pitched their way to horseshoe champion status. To fill the void of the every other year gap, Stull has some ideas for next year to hold people over to the next Andyville Day. “Next year, I’m thinking about having an Oktoberfest and just featuring Germanstyle microbrews,” Stull said. “I think that’s a niche we can move forward on. We need to capitalize on Meade County. I mean, we’re right down the road from Louisville and we need to take advantage of that.”

report back to the council. Public Works Supervisor T.J. Hughes reported there had been no other problems with fire hydrants being turned on and left running since the last council meeting. Council voted 4-1 to hold a public hearing prior to its next regular meeting concerning a burned out building across the street from the courthouse. The owners have been notified the property has become a nuisance and the

city has requested action be taken. City Attorney Darren Sipes told the council he thought this would be the best way to handle the matter as opposed to going directly to court. Councilman Ronnie Joyner was the lone opposition vote. Council also heard the large item pick-up day has been scheduled for Oct. 23 and voted to set the times for Halloween trick-or-treating as 5–8:30 p.m. on Oct. 31.

Prevailing dry weather conditions have created a threat of brush fires in Meade County.

tion costs approximately totaled $72,917.56. During Superintendent Mitch Crump’s personnel report, it listed a new employee that will be hired as a teacher with the Communicare Day Treatment Center. According to Nancy Mitcham, director of special education and early childhood programs, Meade County has recently partnered with Communicare to provide assistance to students with mental health issues. The three month program, which began early this week, will break off students into groups, with one receiving academic help for one hour while the other receives therapy. “The therapy is an evidence based program that has been around for 20 years

that has proven to be very effective,” Mitcham added. “It helps students deal with their mental health and behavioral issues.” In other business, the school board also approved the disclosure of the free and reduced price information agreement, as well as the national school lunch and breakfast program. Crump said the board needed to approve these to show they adhere to the regulations of confidentiality. The board also approved the Meade County High School’s Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) trip to St. Louis for an officers’ convention and MCHS journalism trip to Kansas City, Mo., for a journalism education convention.

Muldraugh taxes a step closer to being set By Casey Tolliver The News Standard Members of the Muldraugh City Council heard the first reading of Ordinance No. 300 Monday night, a measure that will establish tax levies for 2010. The ordinance could slightly lower city taxes. The council also heard that Ford Motor Company will pay to have a police cruiser repainted next week, despite the squad car being out of warranty, according to Muldraugh Police Chief John Stinebruner. The chief also presented Tate with a copy of policies and procedures submitted by the Kentucky League of Cities. The organization is encouraging the city to adopt the regulations. The council was also

asked by Assistant Fire Chief Anthony Lee to consider purchasing a ladder truck for the Muldraugh Fire Protection District. The fire district is totally reliant on other districts’ ladder trucks, he added. Lee, who is also the Muldraugh Public Works Director, reported that Louisville Gas and Electric quoted a price of $16,418 to install electrical service for the ballpark lift station project. Nixon Power also quoted an annual price of $1,070 for maintenance service on the generators at the new lift station, Lee added. The costs will be funded by a recent BRAC grant acquired by the city. Council members also voted to grant Louisville Gas and Electric an easement to provide the electrical service to the lift station.

A bid to paint Muldraugh City Hall was retracted, the council heard. Council members voted to pay for the sinkhole project on Chenault Street with Storm water Management Funds totaling $14,000. The remainder of the cost will be paid for with $1,947.27 from the general fund. A business license for a car lot owned by Martin Snawder was approved, pending approval from the state. Council members also heard that the annual inspection of the storm water program revealed no violations, but that the city has two areas which need improvement. The Kentucky State Highway Department has began a study on drainage problems near Highway 31 W, council members also heard at the meeting.

Thanks to friends, family, co-workers and citizens of Meade County for the love, prayers and support during my illness. I have retired from a job I truly loved at emergency services. Hopefully, I have helped and made a difference along the way. Thanks to so many people for the retirement party, cook out and bake sale. You will never know how much all this meant to me. This is the greatest community to live in. As we go through life there will always be special friends that are there no matter the reason. I am blessed to have many people fit in that category. There is no reason to mention names, you know who you are and what you have done and how much you mean to me.

God Bless you all, Larry “Doc” Singleton

Win with Lynn Fundraiser

The campaign to elect Gerry Lynn for Meade County judge executive officially began as friends, family, and guests came to the catered fundraising dinner located at Home Plate in Brandenburg on August 16 to pledge their support for Meade County’s next CEO. Filled to capacity, Home Plate provided a delicious meal and the backdrop for what turned out to be a watershed fundraising event. “The support and generosity of this community never ceases to amaze us. Nancye and I are truly blessed to live here,” Lynn said as he mingled and thanked supporters for turning out. The night’s festivities started as host, State Senator Carroll Gibson, took the floor to speak. Gibson remarked how Lynn’s personal values of family and community and his dedication to public service are ultimately what make him so successful. Gibson also remarked how Gerry had worked hard for the citizens of Meade County as a state representative; he listened to all the people about their concerns. “He deserves our support”, said Gibson. Also, Gibson assured Gerry, “when elected to judge executive, the people of Meade County should know that as a personal friend I will help this county in anyway I can.” The next guest speaker was Major General Donald Storm. “I am honored to come here tonight to support Gerry.” Echoing Gibson’s remarks on Lynn’s dedication to public service, Storm also noted that “no one person best exemplified the values of duty and honor better than Lynn”. “Lynn understands the legislative process in Frankfort. Coupled with his variety of problem-solving experience, Gerry Lynn has a strong vision for the future of your community with the ability to lead in its implementation”, said Storm. Congressman Brett Guthrie had intended to be at the fundraiser, but was called to Washington D.C.; however, he will be visiting at a future date. Lynn finished by saying, “As you notice new faces, a variety of out-of-state license plates, some longer lines in our businesses, and new construction in the county; we have began to see new growth related to BRAC. With all of the additional change this area will experience over the next few years, Meade County needs a leader who understands the principles of solid economic development which go hand-in-hand with lower taxes and a solid infrastructure”. *Paid for by the campaign to Elect Gerry Lynn Meade County Judge Executive.

Submitted by Meade. Co. Sheriff’s Dept. Narcotics investigations by the Meade County Sheriff’s Department turned up three methamphetamine labs during the month of August. Robert D. Boehler, 27, was arrested & charged with manufacturing methamphetamine on Aug. 10. Officers were attempting to locate Boehler on an outstanding failure to appear warrant at his mother’s residence on Woodland Road. Boehler’s mother gave officers consent to search the property. Boehler was found hiding in a closet. A search of the property led to the discovery of the remains of a “one step” meth lab in a detached shed on the property. Boehler told officers he had been manufacturing meth in the shed. A key to the lock on the door of the shed was found in Boehler’s pocket. He was charged with

manufacturing methamphetamine and lodged in the Meade County Detention Center. On Aug. 19, officers went to the residence of 26-year-old Joshua W. Farrow, on Knott Road, as part of a narcotics investigation. Farrow admitted he was in possession of methamphetamine and gave the officers consent to search the property. A meth lab was located inside a camper on the property. Joshua W. Farrow was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of a controlled substance 1st degree-methamphetamine. Sheriff William Butch Kerrick also said an investigation on Aug. 21 led to the discovery of a meth lab on Happy Ridge Road in Brandenburg. Sheriff’s deputies went to the residence of 57-year-old Michael Terry Humphrey, as part of a narcotics investigation. On arrival, officers de-

tected the odor of a working meth lab from the garage area. Two men were found inside the garage, Michael Terry Humphrey and 26-year-old Joshua David Jupin. Jupin struggled with officers and fled the scene, running into a wooded area behind the home. Michael Terry Humphrey gave officers a statement and granted consent to search the property, where the components of a meth lab were found. As officers began the clean up of the garage, EMS was called to the scene and officers began CPR on Humphrey, who had apparently gone into cardiac arrest. Michael Terry Humphrey was transported to Harrison County Hospital, in Corydon, Ind. where he was pronounced dead. Joshua David Jupin was located by a family member and returned to the scene, where he was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine.

State cracks down on illegal campaign signs Submitted by Ky. Transportation Cabinet Campaign and other temporary signage placed illegally on the state highway right of way will be removed to maintain safety, according to Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials. “Political and advertising signs can limit sight distance, especially near intersections, and create a hazard for maintenance crews,” said Patty Dunaway, chief engineer for the Elizabethtown highway district. Kentucky law and Transportation Cabinet policy prohibit the placement of political or other advertis-

2nd Annual

ing signs on state right of way, including signs attached to utility poles within the state right of way. Illegal signs will be moved to the state highway garage in each county and kept for two weeks. Owners may claim them by showing identification and completing a claim

form. Unclaimed signs will be discarded. “Employees who are removing signs are acting in the best interest of all motorists and of maintenance crews,” Steve Waddle, acting state highway engineer, said. “We appreciate the public’s cooperation and understanding.”

Growth From page A1 Brandenburg last week. “The Army itself, in addition to our economic development people, are projecting thousands of new people into this area,” Beshear said. He noted most of the new jobs BRAC is creating are civilian, high-paying positions. “There is going to be a lot of new jobs, new people, and a lot of new money circulating throughout the economy,” he added. “I look at it as the biggest economic development project Kentucky has had since Toyota came to Kentucky,” Beshear said. “It will create more jobs than Toyota did when they first got here. That’s how big this is for us.” He recalled learning of the project soon after becoming governor and began meeting with state and local leaders on how to proceed. “I became convinced very quickly of what a positive impact this was going to have on Kentucky and we needed to give 110 percent of our support,” Beshear said. Beshear added the state has already spent millions of dollars on new infrastructure and is committed to continuing that support as the program progresses. “We’re spending millions of dollars on new roads so people can get around and we can handle the traffic. We’ve spent money on schools, sewer and water — all of the things we have to have to support that many people.” The governor said he was confident funding would follow the growing population of people and businesses as the needs arose. “The United States Army and all the local governments have been wonderful partners,” he noted. “We’ve worked together hand in hand and there’s been a great amount of trust among us and it’s really worked. That’s another exciting part of this —

Fiscal From page A1 road not being completed,” Chism said. He added the ordinance says the county cannot have a dead end road and the cul-desac has to be finished. “I think we need to take measures to correct that. As it is right now, we are not in compliance with our road ordinance.” Meade County Judge/ Executive Harry Craycroft was quick to disagree. “Yes, we are,” Craycroft said. “There is (a cul-de-sac) on the road. The road is just not completed and we do have the right to take in a partial (road). The plans are still there for the cul-de-sac on the road.” “I beg to differ,” Chism said. “Our ordinance says we can take a partial, but we can’t have a dead end.” Craycroft presented an e-mail from John G. Carroll from the Louisville law firm of Ackerson & Yann. He noted that Carroll has dealt with these types of matters for 41 years and had the experience to judge these kinds of matters. Colletta cited Carroll as being “one of the most experienced land use attorneys in the commonwealth of Kentucky.” Caroll had been requested to review the ordinance and the action taken concerning the road in question. “He says it’s perfectly legal

a great private-public partnership. It’s going to make this a huge success.” In the area of education reform, the governor cited his unhappiness with the process to award “Race to the Top” funds which the commonwealth lost out on for the second time this year. “In the first round we finished in the top 10 and then this second competition we got in the finals again and weren’t selected,” Beshear said. “I’m concerned a little about the selection process. We had one evaluator who just canned us on all the scoring and really skewed our figures. One or two of the other states had the samething happen.” He said normally processes such as this would throw out a high score and a low score so there couldn’t be a major skewing of the final score. “But, this process didn’t have that and that was bothersome to me,” Beshear said. He acknowledged one of Kentucky’s problems with winning the funding was a lack of charter school legislation, but did not rule out another effort to enact something in that area. “I feel like if we do that the right way and give the control of it into the local districts’ hands, that it can be a tool a district can use if they needed to change a school or to make a school better,” Beshear said. “We will revisit charter schools in Kentucky. I think people feel like that would be an effective tool — I agree with them and so I think we will be looking at that again. We’re going to need to get our school boards, school superintendents, and teachers all at the table and work through the issues they have with it. But, I think we can come up with a way of having charter schools that will satisfy everybody’s concerns and at the same time give us a good tool to use.” “We’ve come a long way with education in Kentucky,” Beshear said. He noted when the 1990 education reform bill was

passed, the commonwealth was ranked 48th and has moved up to 34th since then. “That doesn’t mean we should stop, because we’re still not where we should be,” he said. Beshear said the funding that would come from “Race to the Top” would be helpful, but the commonwealth could make its changes without it if necessary. “Kentucky’s going to have to do without it (and) it’s going to slow us down because the plan we put together that was in our ‘Race to the Top’ application is the plan we are going to implement,” Beshear said. He noted being involved in the competition was a positive by being an incentive to take actions that might not otherwise have happened as quickly. “To the extent (the competition) helped us get this plan together, this competition was useful to us,” he said. “I don’t know if there will be other competitions like that or not, but we’re going to move ahead to implement this plan because it’s what we’ve got to do. We have got to get our educational systems to the point where our kids come out of them with the opportunity to compete with the best students in the world. We can do that.” With Kentucky’s unemployment rate hovering at 10 percent, Beshear spoke of the economy and said he believed the recent stimulus funding has helped. “We received hundreds of millions of dollars for infrastructure projects and we put that money to work,” he said. “We built and are building roads and bridges that are needed in this state that will help commerce and business activity that we could not have built without the stimulus. “It is putting people to work because the contractors are hiring people to do these jobs. It is also putting other people to work because the money that is being paid in

and we could do it. His basic question is what are you asking me for. This is dumb. Yes, you can,” Craycroft said. Colletta explained the reason Carroll had been contacted was County Attorney Margaret Matney lived on the road and, to prevent any appearance of conflict of interest, it was determined best to get an outside opinion. “My opinion is the Fiscal Court’s partial approval was thoroughly appropriate under both the Meade County Subdivision Regulations and Road Ordinance,” Carroll’s email stated. Carroll’s conclusions stated the approved plan shows the cul-de-sac, it is not a dead end street since the cul-de-sac is shown, and regulations gives the court the authority to give partial approval. Chism said he would rather have an opinion from the attorney general’s office and asked what if the cul-de-sac was never finished. “That’s why we have a bond,” Craycroft replied. “He doesn’t complete it, we take the bond money and complete it.” Chism continued to press for an attorney general’s opinion. “You want to call your buddy, Mr. Hartley, or you want me to?” Craycroft asked. “I can call him,” Chism replied. “Well, you’re on a first name basis,” Craycroft retorted. The court also approved taking Emmer Court, with only Chism voting no. The inspection performed by Assistant Road Supervisor Jeff Padgett showed problems

with settling and seeding due to dry weather. “We can’t control Mother Nature and neither can the contractors,” said Magistrate Thomas Goddard. “How long are we going to hold a developer responsible for dry weather?” asked Magistrate Mark Hubbard. Chism voted no saying, “There is an imperfection on the final inspection. It is not according to our standards.” Magistrate Thomas Goddard cast his yes vote adding, “We’ve got roads Mr. Popham took into the service district that don’t meet the standards. And, we can’t control the weather.” Similar discussions and vote patterns of 6-1 approved the county taking in Ritchie Drive and Charles Crutcher Drive, although Magistrate Tony Staples joined Chism voting no on the second stating he felt there should be more work done to the cul-de-sac. Fiscal Court also approved giving $2,000 to the MeadeBreck Center which is being approved for use as a Red Cross disaster shelter, $2,500 for the Meade County Firefighters Association for their annual Fire School, and $3,000 for the Christmas By The River festivities. The court also approved the appointments of Peggy Darnall and Suzanne Walters to the county library board of trustees. Magistrate Goddard voted no on the appointments saying he would like to have seen both give a pledge not to raise library taxes and appear at the court for their appointment.

salaries go into the drug store or grocery store and is spent on goods and services. That circulates through the economy and therefore your businesses prosper better than they would otherwise and hire people and pay people. So, it has helped Kentucky in that regard tremendously.” He said even though the economy has produced some rough times, he remains optimistic. “I’m beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel,” Beshear said. He noted a package passed by the legislature which changed Kentucky’s economic business incentive packages. “We now can not only work with a business from out of state to attract them to come in, but we can work with our existing businesses to help them grow and expand and create new jobs,” he said. Beshear said as a result of that legislation, the commonwealth has 179 companies preliminarily approved

for more of the expanded or new incentives now offered. He added those projects represents $1.6 billion in investments and the potential of 10,000 new jobs. “We are seeing a lot of increased economic activity because of that, and I’m very excited about what the future holds for us,” he said. The governor also offered advice to those political newcomers who may find themselves seated in local and state government for the first time dealing with the crises of the day. “It is awfully easy to be an office holder in good times,” Beshear said. “If you have plenty of money, you can decide how to spend it and you make a lot of people happy. “It’s a lot more difficult to do your job as a public servant in times like we’re experiencing because more often than not, you’re telling someone ‘No’ or telling someone we’ve got to cut back as opposed to telling someone ‘What can we do for you now?’

He said for those office holders, their days in public service would be some of the most challenging times they will have. “But, if you’re willing to make tough decisions and do the right thing, it can be some of the most rewarding times that you’ll ever experience because I find people pretty much understand what’s going on. They know we’re in tough times and as long as you’re up front and honest with them and say ‘We’re going to work with you and do the best we can,’ that’s all they expect of you,” he said. “I’ll tell you this, I have never been more proud to be a Kentuckian then being governor in these tough times and seeing how our people our handling it because Kentuckians come together and take care of each other. They take care of their families and their friends. In some of these natural disasters, they take care of strangers. It just makes me proud to be a Kentuckian.”

YMCA Joins National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month Submitted By Kentucky YMCA Youth Association FRANKFORT — Kentucky YMCA Youth Association joins local and national organizations around the country to lead a community response to childhood obesity, during National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. Earlier this year, a resolution was unanimously passed in both the House of Representatives and the Senate designating September as National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, to bring attention to this growing epidemic in the Unites States and call Americans to action. The theme for the month is Healthier Kids, Brighter Futures. Childhood obesity is a growing epidemic in America. An estimated 23 million children and teenagers ages 2 to 19 are obese or overweight. That rate has tripled in the past 30 years. For the first time in history, children may have shorter lifespan expectancies than their parents. Every day, KY YMCA

An estimated 23 million children and teenagers ages 2 to 19 are obese or overweight. That rate has tripled in

the past 30 years.

Youth Association works with children, families, and with leaders from all sectors of the community to find innovative solutions to help individuals and families make

healthier choices. Working with the Healthier Kids, Brighter Futures initiative, the Y will be able to extend its work to turn the tide of childhood obesity.

Statewide Pioneering Healthier Communities is part of the Y’s Healthier Communities Initiatives which focus on collaborative engagement with community leaders, how environments influence health and well being, and the role public policy plays in sustaining change. The growing epidemic of childhood obesity is a serious problem in Kentucky and is a risk factor for many chronic diseases that our children should not have to worry about, said Emma Brown, Statewide PHC Project Manager. “Through Statewide Pioneering Healthier Communities, we believe that the policies and environments in our community can play a major role in turning the tide against childhood obesity and preventing our children from facing devastating chronic illnesses down the road.” Brown said. “Obesity places our nation’s youth at risk for heart disease, diabetes and other chronic conditions that they shouldn’t have to worry about,” said Neil

Nicoll, president and CEO of YMCA of the USA. “We must work together across all sectors of our communities to create solutions that will help our kids adopt and maintain healthy behaviors throughout their lives. We applaud Congress for making September National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month and are proud to support the Healthier Kids, Brighter Futures initiative.” The Healthier Kids, Brighter Futures initiative educates and empowers families and youth to live healthy lifestyles, eat nutritious food and be physically active. Throughout the month of September, organizations around the United States will plan and carry out activities that build awareness about and encourage action on childhood obesity. The initiative’s Web site,, provides information, Web links and tools to promote and celebrate September as National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. The Y’s Healthy Family Home, which provides free

resources devoted to helping families adopt healthy behaviors, will also be featured on the initiative’s Web site. The Kentucky Statewide PHC initiative includes efforts to combat childhood obesity including, facilitating community partnerships to influence policy and environmental changes that increase access to clean and safe parks and recreational facilities so that more kids can have the opportunity to participate in physical activity, reduce health disparities, and increase access to fruits and vegetables in under-served areas through making community gardens and farmers’ markets more accessible. The public and private sector, communities and thought leaders, are championing a range of efforts to improve child wellness in America.

Komen for the Cure Louisville Affiliate. The festival, which takes place Sept. 22-26, will feature five nights of comedy and live music in downtown Jeffersonville.   The festival “offers a compelling, relevant entertainment experience that appeals to residents on both sides of the river, thereby becoming a signature event for the region,” stated Troy Thomas, CenterStage Marketing Group.  Tickets for festival events range from $5 to $35, with proceeds from ticket sales donated to area charities.   “We felt it necessary to keep ticket prices low to make all of the events affordable in light of the current economic conditions,” Thomas said.

The Louisville Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure has been selected as the official non-profit charity organization of the River Crossing Festival, and will receive proceeds from two of the festival’s five events, with a minimum donation of $10,000.

Kohlrabi is a tasty vegetable that’s good for you. By Angela Shelf Medearis The Kitchen Diva

We’re advised by medical experts to eat cabbage and other cruciferous vegetables several times a week to help reduce the risk of certain cancers such as colon and rectal cancer. Kohlrabi is a relatively unknown cruciferous vegetable. Cruciferous vegetables — other than cabbage — include broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy, kale, Swiss chard, Brussels sprouts and beet and mustard greens. Crispy Kohlrabi Cakes 4 Kohlrabi bulbs (approximately 1 1/2 pounds) 2 teaspoons sea salt Kohlrabi leaves from bulbs, (if available) washed and finely chopped 3 green onions, roots removed, and green tops and white parts chopped 2 eggs, lightly beaten 1/2 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs 1/2 teaspoon grated or ground ginger 1/2 teaspoon cayenne or dried red pepper flakes 1 teaspoon ground black

pepper 1/4 cup vegetable oil 1. Peel (large bulbs) and shred kohlrabi using a box or cheese grater. Sprinkle the kohlrabi with the salt and place it in colander to drain for 30 minutes. Squeeze out any excess moisture with a paper towel, wringing it out. 2. Combine the kohlrabi with the kohlrabi leaves, the green onions, eggs, breadcrumbs, ginger, cayenne or red pepper flakes, and the pepper. Blend well. 3. Heat oil in large skillet over medium high heat. Form patties placing two heaping tablespoons of mixture in the oil and pressing it flat with a spatula. Fry until patties are golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with salt.

Business Chamber members tour new Flaherty Primary facility

The News Standard ­- A11

Friday, September 17, 2010

By Brian Graves The News Standard It was back to school for members of the Meade County Chamber of Commerce Tuesday as they were guests of the Meade County School System. The chamber ’s monthly meeting was held at the new Flaherty Primary School and the school’s food service personnel prepared the luncheon. Prior to lunch, faculty members and students gave members tours of the new facility. Paul Poole, director of personnel for the school system, hosted the program. He noted the system had hosted the event every year at a different school and wanted the

community to see what improvements had been made. A visual replay of the construction of the new Flaherty school played behind Poole as he spoke showing the various levels of construction as well as the faces of the students who attend. “As proud as we are of how this facility looks, what makes us most proud is the opportunity to showcase what the adults and students are doing in our schools,” Poole said. Brenda Weatherington gave a short presentation about the START program which assists students from military families. Also speaking was Col.Carl Schultz, garri-

son commander at Fort Knox. Schultz told Chamber members how important the Meade County communities are to the influx of new families caused by the BRAC project. Rodney Pickering, school system director of buildings and grounds, gave a description of the new Flaherty facility. “This building was designed to be one of the most, if not the most, energy-efficient building in Kentucky,” Pickering said. He also described all the new technology that was planned into the building allowing teachers to use the latest audio-video methods for instruction.

Local farm entertains, keeps customers a-maze-d By Casey Tolliver The News Standard Cooler temperatures, apples and hayrides serve as reminders that summer is now a thing of the past. But one local farm offers another early autumn treat: a corn maze. “Our goal is to get families out here together and get back to basics,” Roberts family Farm co-owner and operator Rhonda Roberts said. “It’s a good day without costing a lot for the families.” Roberts Family Farm is a multi-functioning spread situated on 50 acres near Guston. During the summer, the farm produces blackberries that customers can pick or can buy already picked. Roberts Farm also produces watermelons during the summer months. However, the mainstay of the farm are 6-7 weeks of the fall season. An on-site store where customers can buy items ranging from jams and jellies and honey, to fresh produce such as corn and squash, to angel ornaments made from cotton grown right on the premises. “We usually grow cotton for field trips, for the students,” Roberts said. “That’s usually grown in the South. If we didn’t grow it, most people wouldn’t ever get to see it. Even the adults are amazed

to see it.” The crown jewel of Roberts Family Farm during the fall season is the corn maze. For the past four years, the Roberts’ have cordoned off five acres of their farm to devote to the maze. The Roberts’ had relied on pumpkins as a cash crop in the past, but after doing some research decided to give a corn maze a try. “The pumpkin patch has gone over really well, but in the agribusiness, you want to get something that keeps people coming back,” Roberts said. In past years, the maize labyrinth featured a fall related pattern, getting visitors lost in shapes such as jack o’lanterns and witches. Meade County extension agent Andy Mills was instrumental in etching the corn maze. “He’s amazing,” Roberts said. “This is the fourth maze he has done for us. Every year he comes up with a pattern for us. Andy really outdid himself this year.” This year ’s pattern was open for sponsorship rights, which were purchased by Tony Brown Chevrolet, Roberts said. Next year ’s maze will be open for sponsorship. Creating the maze is a months long process, she added. Roberts’ husband,

Kevin, plants corn on the five acres allotted for the maze. Once the corn is nearly a foot tall, Mills uses a GPS system attached to a zero turning radius mower to cut the initial pattern of the maze. Kevin then mows the cut paths several times to keep the shape of the initial pattern. The use of the GPS technology to fashion the shape of the maze is impressive to say the least,

when the soil begins to rewet. Under water-saturated conditions, soil microbes convert nitrate nitrogen into nitrous oxide, a greenhouse gas, and nitrogen gas. However, wheat can scavenge the remaining nitrogen and protect it from loss. For wheat producers, that means there is no reason to apply nitrogen this fall. If the soil doesn’t become saturated during the winter, farmers can cut spring nitrogen by 20 to 30 pounds per acre. Grain producers who will plant corn again next year, second year or continuous corn should also consider planting a cover crop of wheat. Just like growing it for grain production, the wheat will take up nitrogen that would otherwise be lost through winter months. As wheat decomposes after the spring herbicide application, nitrogen will be

released and become available to the corn crop. Research has shown that at least 30 pounds of nitrogen can be recycled using a wheat cover crop following drought conditions. In addition to nitrogen, the cover crop will help increase soil organic matter, reduce winter annual weeds, help break up surface compaction and improve overall yield of the following corn crop. Cover crops are more economically viable now because of the increased cost of nitrogen fertilizer and other agricultural inputs. If you have not planted cover crops in the past, this would be a good year to try them on all or part of this year’s corn ground. For more information on wheat management, please contact the Meade County Cooperative Extension Service.

After a long drought, cover crops to eliminate waste Andy Mills Ag & Natural Resources The 2010 drought will have implications for future crops long after drought conditions subside. Farmers planting wheat after a lowyielding corn crop will see the most immediate effects. Because of severe water limitations, corn plants were not able to produce up to their genetic yield potential. Nitrogen that would have been taken up in the plant under normal growing conditions is left in the soil. Residual nitrogen will be lost through the winter months if the farmer doesn’t plant anything on these fields this fall. Much of the loss occurs

according to Roberts. “That still blows my mind,” she said. “I don’t get that, it’s weird to me. But it does it.” Roberts Family Farm and the corn maze are open Monday through Friday from 5:30 p.m. to dark and Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to dark. The cost is $3 per ticket. Saturday night is flashlight night and costs $5 per ticket. For more information call 422-2361.

Farm Safety Week offers tips on how to reduce farm related deaths Submitted by Kentucky Department of Agriculture FRANKFORT — Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer urges all Kentuckians to commemorate National Farm Safety and Health Week Sept. 19-25 by putting safety first. “Safety on the farm and in the home is everybody’s responsibility,” Commissioner Farmer said. “A moment’s carelessness can result in serious injury or even death. Please take time to think about safety for your own sake and for the sake of your family.” The Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s Farm and Home Safety Program and Kentucky Farm Bureau will hold a Pep Rally for Life Sept.

22 at Shelby County High School to celebrate Farm Safety and Health Week. The Department will display its rollover tractor simulator, which demonstrates the use of a rollover protective structure (ROPS) to prevent a tractor from overturning, and its miniature grain bin simulator, which shows how quickly a person can become trapped in a grain bin. The Department’s Farm and Home Safety Program was launched in 1998 to raise awareness about the importance of making safety a priority. Program administrator Dale Dobson conducts lectures, demonstrations, training and mock accident rescues throughout the Commonwealth. The Agriculture, Forestry,

Fishing and Hunting sector recorded 17 fatalities in Kentucky in 2008, according to the 2008 Kentucky Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation Program (FACE) annual report. That was an increase of two fatalities from 2007. The death rate in that sector in 2008–45.1 per 100,000 employees — was the highest of any occupational sector in Kentucky but was lower than the national average for the sector (55.7). Kentucky’s farm fatalities resulted in more than $1.6 million in lost earnings, the report stated.

Lady Waves fight for a tie against region foe By Ben Achtabowski The News Standard

Last year, Nelson County trounced the Meade County Lady Waves soccer team 3-0. So after 80 minutes of play, a 1-1 tie felt like a victory for Meade County head coach Dan Shook. “To be able to lose 13 seniors last year and lose to them 3-0 and to come back and tie them this year 1-1 is pleasing,” Shook said. The Lady Waves were dominated the first half of the game where Nelson County controlled the ball on the offensive side of the field. Finally, one of their shots found its way past Meade County senior keeper Kiana Rupe with 3:06 left

in the first half. Rupe ended the night with eight saves while Nelson County had 11 shots on frame. Letting in late first half goals has plagued Meade County the past two seasons. Last week, Central Hardin also scored with less than 3 minutes left in the half. “That’s just one thing we really have to work on,” Shook said. “We have to be a tough team. We have to realize that we can’t let up. I really got on their backs the second half because I didn’t want them to let up again.” The Lady Waves came out a different team in the second half as they controlled the ball and had four more

scoring opportunities than Nelson County. Meade County finally scored the equalizer 10 minutes into the second half when senior midfielder Devon Rowe deflected the ball in the net off sophomore striker Darla West’s shot. “I went to go for the top (of the net) but I missed it,” West said about the goal. “Luckily, Devon was there to pick it up for me. I was actually shooting at the net and it didn’t work.” West started the season as the Lady Waves stopper and recently moved to striker to create more offense. “I’ve been playing everywhere so far this season,” See FIGHT, page B4

Numbers behind sports related concussion


sports related concussions reported in the U.S.

By Ben Achtabowski The News Standard


For Meade County High School, implementing the concussion ImPACT program was a no brainer. The computerized ImPACT program (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing), developed in the 1990s, helps diagnose and evaluate concussion injuries in athletes. Now, Meade County is part of the cutting edge technology that the NFL, MLB and most colleges use. When sports medicine director Eric Oliver of Hardin Memorial Hospital (HMH) approached Meade County School administrators over the summer, very little was said before Meade County jumped on the chance to do the program. “When I met with (Meade County Superintendent Mitch Crump), he said ‘yes’ before I even finished,” Oliver

athletes — five of them are doing it through HMH. The program is a cognitive 20 to 30 minute computerized test that creates an individual control result. If the athlete then receives a concussion later on, the athlete must grade similar to their control or base test before he or she is able to continue participating in a particular sport. “You see a lot of concern about prevention of concussions and in-

juries,” said Meade County athletic director John Proctor. “When a athlete is unfortunate to get a concussion we want to make sure he is 100 percent OK to play.”

They see the importance in this.” Hardin Memorial Hospital is one of the few hospitals in the state which has adopted the program and has helped area schools commit to the program. According to Oliver, only 25 to 30 high schools in Kentucky are using programs to diagnosis their

Turnovers cost Greenwave second loss By Ben Achtabowski The News Standard The Meade County Greenwave football team just could not contain the second half offensive attack of the Fern Creek Tigers. They especially couldn’t contain University of Louisville-committed running back Jerrell Moore, who made up for five touchdowns to help the Tigers win, 46-12. “We didn’t have an answer for him,” Meade County head coach Larry Mofield said. “I’m not sure right now — with the way we’re tackling and turning over the ball — who we have an answer for. There were times where they got on the edge and had 10 or 15 yards before they even

think about getting hit.” Moore ended the night with 231 yards on 19 carries, one catch for 30 yards and completed a pass for

12 yards. Fern Creek took advantage of Meade County errors. The Greenwave turned the ball over six times, converting into 21 points for Fern Creek. Meade County also was without its leading scorer, rusher and passer in junior quarterback Thomas Wilson, who was out due to an ankle injury. His replacement was his cousin, sophomore Jake Wilson. “I thought he played pretty well,” Mofield said of Jake Wilson. “It’s hard to find bright spots in a 46-21 loss, but I don’t think he lost the game for us. We didn’t lose the game because we started a sophomore quarterback. See TURNOVERS, page B2

Soccer slips up in 1-1 tie By Ben Achtabowski The News Standard The Meade County Greenwave soccer team walked away from Tuesday’s 1-1 tie at Fort Knox like it was another loss. “You ask any competitive athlete or coach, a tie is just about as good as a loss,” said Meade County head coach Matt Pollock, whose team fell to 4-41 and is winless in the last five games. “It’s very unsatisfying. You can see it on their faces. This is not what they were expecting.” The Greenwave also have been unable to claim a district win (0-2-1). The tie was Meade County’s first loss or tie against Fort Knox since 2002 when they lost in a district playoff, 4-2. “We were scared to lose,” Pollock said. “They know exactly what they are doing wrong and they just don’t know how to fix it. It’s really strange.” The Greenwave broke the 0-0 tie 10 minutes into the second half after senior midfielder Cody Shain See SLIPS, page B4

Turnovers From page B1 I have great confidence in him. I actually felt good with him the whole week. He could start for a lot of teams in the state of Kentucky.” Jake Wilson found out that he was going to start at the end of Wednesday’s practice. This was the first time Jake Wilson and his older brother, senior center Will Wilson, have paired together as a center-quarterback combo on the varsity field. “It was like playing in the backyard again,” Will Wilson said, who serves as his little brother’s mentor. “We talked a little bit last night. He said he wasn’t nervous. I just told him to go out there and do your job. He knew what he had to do.” “It was pretty cool,” Jake Wilson said about playing with his older brother. “That was the first experience for me. He just told me to relax and settle down. He knew I would be fine in the game.” The family affair was spoiled early when Greenwave offense fumbled during the first play from the line of scrimmage and Fern Creek recovered the ball. During the next play, Moore dashed into the end zone untouched for a 17yard touchdown. Meade County fought back to score 4 minutes later when senior running back Rex Liverman dove into the end zone for a 7-yard touchdown to take the lead, 7-6. The Greenwave extended their lead, 14-6 in the second quarter when junior Max Cundiff had a 7-yard touchdown run with 9:21 left in the half. The 92-yard drive took more than 7 minutes off the clock. “I thought we ran the ball effectively tonight,” Mofield said. “Other than the fumbles, we did our job for the most part. Our run game and passing game complimented each other well.” Fern Creek took back the lead, 21-14, by scoring backto-back touchdowns only a minute and 15 seconds apart from each other. The second touchdown was set up after a screen pass was intercepted by Fern Creek and returned to the 8-yard line. “I’ve been coaching long enough to know that interceptions on screen plays are going to happen,” Mofield said. “Sometimes it’s feast or famine. It was feast a few times for us and it was famine for us on that one play.” Meade County then produced a long drive, which put them on the 8-yard line with 2 minutes left in the half. But on a fourth down play, Jake Wilson’s pass to Rex Liverman was stopped short of the goal line. “We had a golden opportunity to tie it up going into the half,” Mofield said, whose team went into halftime down 21-14. “Part of me thought you should kick a field goal. But, you can’t beat this team with field goals. I believed in our kids and we moved the football in the first half.” Meade County outgained the Tigers 179 to 169 during the first half. The second half was another story where Fern Creek gained 264 yards while Meade

County only had 162 yards. “We could have tied it up, 21-21,” Mofield said. “Even with 14 of their points coming off turnovers. Even with all that bad stuff we were still in the game. It was the same thing with John Hardin. With all that negative stuff, we had a chance to go into halftime tied up.” After halftime, the Greenwave fell apart at the seams and gave up 25 second half points. “We just didn’t come to play in the second half,” Will Wilson said. “We didn’t have our head in the game.” Meade County fumbled on its first possession of the second half and Fern Creek turned around and made a 58-yard touchdown drive that was capped off by a Moore 5-yard touchdown run. With that score, Meade County found themselves down 33-14. Fern Creek scored three total touchdowns in the third quarter, including a 30-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Claiborne Holmes to Moore and an 11-yard pass from Holmes to junior Travon Spencer. “We did not control the ball at all in the third quarter,” Mofield said, whose team only had the ball 3 minutes during the third quarter. “We couldn’t stop them. We basically took a quarter out of the game. Part of your best defense against a good team is a good offense. We just couldn’t control the clock.” Fern Creek added a final touchdown when Moore rushed for a 60-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. It was only 11 seconds after Meade County scored when Jake Wilson hooked up to sophomore wide receiver Byrce Garris for each other’s first career varsity touchdowns. After that touchdown the score was 40-21 with 11:15 left in the game. “I thought Jake played pretty well,” Will Wilson said of his little brother’s debut. “He made the passes he had to make. He had to do what he had to do. It’s just we didn’t stop them on defense.” Jake Wilson ended the night 13-24 for 197 yards and threw two interceptions. He also rushed for 28 yards. Rex Liverman was the team’s leading rusher with 69 yards on 18 carriers. “It was good for us to get the running game going a little bit,” Will Wilson said. “We scored 21 points. If we stop them on defense we’re in this game.” Cundiff had 50 yards rushing, 36 of them came in the first half. He missed most of the second half after severely cutting his index finger. “Max is a tough kid,” Mofield said. “He plays with a lot of heart. If there’s anyone who can bounce back from an injury it would be him.” Injuries have put a young team out on the field for the Greenwave. There were up to four sophomores on defense during the game. Adding to the inexperience, there are first-year varsity starters in junior linebacker Billy Carter and senior defensive tackle Dustin Wells. “We have a lot of young kids out there right now,” Mofield said. “Those aren’t excuses, those are just realities. We have to do a better job — as coaches — to pre-

pare them for the game. That falls squarely on me.” Meade County now is 0-6 against Fern Creek and 1-2 this season, which is still its best start since 2006. “We have to start winning games like this,” Mofield said. “If we want to be a great football program we have to beat great teams. Luckily the season is young. This is just the third game.” Meade County will travel to Ballard tonight, who is ranked No. 3 in 6-A and may be the best public school team in the state. “They should have beat St. X (in the season opener),” Mofield said. “They got a great football team. They’ll win a lot of games. It’s going to be a challenge for us. If you’re fortunate to knock a good team like that you get the recognition. If you want recognition you beat good football teams and not when you’re beating rinky-dinks. And we don’t play any rinky-dinks.” Kick off for tonight’s game is slated for 7:30 p.m.

Once the baseline test is taken, if the athlete does have a concussion they retake the test to see where their cognitive levels are compared to its pre-concussion levels. “You can look at an ankle and see swelling or an abnormal walking gait,” Oliver said. “With a brain there’s no way to know. You can look at a kid and not know what’s going on in his brain. It’s kind of a way to go in and look at the brain and see if its not healed.” HMH has used the program twice already since the its introduction to Hardin County schools in July. One the athlete did not pass the first test after a concussion and the other passed and continued to play. “It’s very individualistic,” Oliver said. “Johnny isn’t being compared to all the other Johnnys in the nation. Johnny is being compared to his brain.”

There have been horror stories around the country about this happening. Athletes can’t get out of bed, they can’t say their names.”

Ringing the bell on ‘getting your bell run’ In the past ‘getting your bell rung,’ ‘slobber knockers,’ and ‘seeing stars’ was a running joke with head injuries. “When I played they didn’t give a hoot,” said Meade County wresting head coach Bob Davis. “We ran into telephone poles and it didn’t matter.” Testing in progress Depicted in television and Meade County’s testing movies, head injuries are began several weeks ago someone getting knocked starting with football and out and seeing birds.

cise in subsequent days. The player must not have headaches at any point of the test. With the addition to the ImPACT, there now is a three-step process for Meade County athletes who want to return to play. (1) They must be seen and cleared by a doctor. (2) They have to clear the ImPACT test. (3) They have to complete their return to pay process set by the Zurich study. “It’s more stringent but I always tell parents we’re dealing with the brain,” Oliver said. “The knee is one thing but the brain is important. If the brain doesn’t heal right, that can be disastrous.” Meade’s contact with concussions Last season, the Lady Waves soccer team had its fair share of concussions. Striker Alli Bogard suffered two concussions and wore a special padded helmet while playing soccer. Goalkeeper Kiana Rupe also received a concussion during the first day of summer camp when she hit her head on the ground. “In soccer, you can get a concussion a lot of ways. You can run into the post, hit the ground, head the ball or knock heads with another player,” Shook said. “There are a lot of different ways and it’s a wonder why you don’t have more of them.” Meade County football head coach Larry Mofield has recently seen several high-profile concussions to their players. Two seasons ago, wide receiver Michael Addesa was diagnosed for a concussion and last season linebacker Nelson Mason Jr. suffered a concussion during the final game of the regular season. Both players missed games and Mason missed the team’s only two playoff games. “We knew that was a concussion,” Mofield said of Mason. “He was a like a wet noodle. It’s the ones that are boarder line and mild that can be the most dangerous. What will happen is the kid will go back out there before they’re ready. A lot of times the coaches just don’t know. Now, this will let us know a little better.” It’s unknown how many mild concussions have gone mistreated not only at Meade County but also all over the state and country. Statistics show that 300,000 sports-related concussions occur yearly in the U.S. Recent studies estimate that the actual number may be as high as 3.8 million because the original estimates only included concussions that resulted from a loss of consciousness. This occurs in only one out of 10 concussions. “I’ve felt like that we’ve done a very good job that if a kid shows any signs or symptoms we keep him out,” Mofield said. “We have done a really good job at being proactive. I feel like myself and the coaching staff have not put young men in jeopardy.”

Davis is also very cautious of concussions as a wrestling coach. Luckily for the fifth year program, Davis hasn’t seen too many Meade County wrestler concussions. “As a coach you sit there and talk to the kid,” he said. “You want to know he’s coherent. You want to make sure he can talk. You tell the parent to get him to the hospital or get him to the doctor. Always take caution to the injury.” The price is right. The program is not for free, but Proctor feels protection is priceless. “This is really about the kids,” he said. “You want what’s best for them and you want to protect them.” The ImPACT program costs the schools every year and is based on the number of athletes tested. For Meade County, the price this year is around $750 with HMH help-

ing with half the cost this year and a quarter for the next. “Three or four football helmets will set you back that much,” Proctor said. “In the grand scheme of things it’s not that much.” With more than 200 athletes taking the test at Meade County, costs will go down as the program becomes more established. Eventually, Meade County will only have to test every other year. The program seems relatively cheap compared to the top-of-the-line football helmets that can costs from $200 to $250 apiece. “Now you want the best for your kids, always,” said Meade County football head coach Larry Mofield. “What I’m concerned with is that with the helmets they are going to start jacking the prices up on the new technologies. I’m worried that school districts won’t be able to pay for them. There are some school programs out there that may not be able to purchase the necessary equipment in the future. “I think with precautions with the ImPACT program and what we’re trying to do here will help bridge that price gap so it won’t be as costly for the schools.” Getting ahead of the curve With the rapid evolving of technology, staying ahead of the curve is the best way to stop the dangers of injuries such as concussions. ImPACT has been the leading program around the nation and now is a staple in Meade County athletic programs. “ImPACT’s phones are

flooded,” Oliver said. “There’s a lot of interest in this. It shows that this isn’t something that’s going away. This is something that everyone should do.” Concussion diagnoses spiked the past five years according to Oliver. Last year, HMH saw 18 concussions. This year, they have seen six already since July 15. A Chicago Institute of Neurosurgery and Neuroresearch study showed that 47 of every 100,000 high school football players have a concussion injury. There are 36 concussions occurring for every 100,000 girl soccer players and 22 for every 100,000 boy soccer players. According to a 2007 study by Ohio State University, 8.9 percent of all high school athletic injures were concussions. This almost doubled the same report in 1997, which reported 5.5 percent of the injuries were concussions. “I think it’s because of awareness,” Oliver said of the increase of concussions. “We just know more about the injury now than in the past.” With the new ImPACT program, Meade County coaches feel confident that the school is giving students an advantage. “I think our high school is ahead of the curve in a lot of things,” Mofield said. “I think we’re ahead of the curve in academics and athletics. I think we’re ahead of the curve as far as the things we try to do to protect the students.” “You don’t want to be reactive, you want to be proactive especially when it comes to the brain,” he added. “This is a step to being proactive.”

Mikayla Perry passes the ball against District 11 rival Breckinridge County.

Volleyball beats Breck, again By Ben Achtabowski The News Standard

Sometimes being the first is motivation. Other times, not being the first can be motivation, too. For the Meade County Lady Waves, not being the first volleyball team in the program’s history to lose to Breckinridge County is enough inspiration. “I use that as motivation,” said Meade County head coach Jennifer Smith. “I tell them they are the best volleyball team talent wise that Meade County has ever had. Do they want to be the first team to lose to a team that has never beat us? They react pretty well to that. They get their game face on.” The Lady Waves are 3-0 against the Breckinridge County Lady Tigers this season including their recent 25-23, 25-19 win on Sept. 9. The Meade County volleyball program has not lost to Breckinridge County since entering the 11th District in 2005. “It’s a pretty exciting win,” said outside hitter Selena Burton. “Really this is probably the most exciting win throughout the whole season. They’re our rivals and they’ve been our rivals for a long time. They improved a lot since we saw them last… but so have we.” The Lady Waves found themselves in an 11-9 hole because of errors at the beginning of the match. But senior middle hitter Tiffany Filburn helped tie the game twice, at 11 and 14, with kills. She ended the night with 14 kills, eight digs and one assist. Meade County took its biggest lead of the night after junior middle hitter LeAnna Luney tipped the ball over the net and Filburn had a kill. “They are both so athletic and talented,” Smith said of the Lady Wave middle hitters. “This is Tiff’s senior sea-

son. We have to lean on her. (Junior setter) Becca (Clark) is always setting her but she’s setting her in the back row. I told her she has to set her more on the front row, not the back row. That’s where she’s her strongest.” The sophomore outside hitter Leah Cannady served up four straight points to take a 21-16 lead. Breckinridge fought back to put the game at 23 a piece, but Meade County finished off with two straight points to take the set, 25-23. “(The Lady Tigers) have some of the best hitters we have seen,” Smith said. “They are a tough team.” Earlier in the season, Breckinridge County forced a three-game set and have a pesky foe for the Lady Waves. Meade County also beat them in a scrimmage tournament to begin the season. “This time they knew what kind of team (Breckinridge) is,” Smith said. “Playing them and seeing how hard they wanted to win made our girls realize that they have to step up.” During the second match Luney gave the Lady Waves their biggest lead of the match 12-6 with a kill. She had a big night for the Lady Waves with five kills and two blocks. It was Luney’s second game back after she pulled ligaments in her ankle three weeks ago. “It’s a humongous difference having her back,” Smith said of her junior middle hitter. “Her blocking ability makes such a big difference with our front row. We don’t have much size other than her and Tiffany Filburn. The Lady Waves were back to full health after having a rough weekend. Sophomore defensive specialist Mikhaela Perry pulled her hamstring during the weekend and Smith missed a game due a stomach virus. “I feel relieved,” Smith said. “I was a little worried

after this weekend. Mikayla pulled her hamstring, LeAnna just came back and I’m feeling better. We should be good now.” Clark had 20 assists, nine digs and two kills. Junior outside hitter Rachel Powers had eight kills, while Cannady had eight digs, two kills and two aces. Meade County is 4-0 in the district and is a top of the 3rd Region with a 13-6 overall record. The next time Meade County may face Breckinridge County will be in the district tournament at the beginning of the October. “We have them again in districts,” Smith said. “They’re not playing around. Every time we beat them that gives them even more of a will to beat us. So we can’t look past them.” Meade takes down Taylor County Meade County (16-5) beat Taylor County, 25-14, 25-20. Junior middle hitter LeAnna Luney had six kills and a dig while senior middle hitter Tiffany Filburn had five kills, five digs and three aces. Junior outside hitter Rachel Powers added four aces and junior setter Becca Clark had 12 assists and four kills. Meade County hosts Hancock County on Tuesday starting at 7 p.m.

During the second one, senior midfielder Cody Clements knocked the rebound into the back of the net. “I hit it the first time and it bounced off a defender,” Clements said. “I hit it a second time with my left foot and put it in.” Fort Knox answered back with 9 minutes left in the game when senior midfielder Chris Whitaker scored on a direct kick from 25 yards out. “It’s disappointing,” Clements said about letting in a late goal. “We had the lead and knew we could beat them. But we didn’t.

It’s really disappointing. “We needed this win bad,” he added. “We needed it to get our hopes up for our game against Central (Hardin). They are going to be tough as it is.” Meade County played their fourth district match in five games against Central Hardin last night. Central Hardin is ranked in the top 25 of the state. “We have got to play our top game if we want any positive outcome,” Pollock said. “We just need to get a win at this point.

penalty kick when Central Hardin scored again 2 minutes later. “Penalty kicks happen,” Shook said. “But when you hold a team scoreless for the majority of the first half then you give up a goal off a PK is very frustrating. I told the girls to keep their heads up … I’d rather give up a legitimate goal then a PK.” Shook has been concerned about the Lady Waves giving up late goals in the first half. “You hate to do that,” he said. “At halftime I told the girls to keep their heads up. We’ve come back from two goals before. It’s doable. I thought we came out with a renewed energy.” During the second half Meade County was unable to find a goal, while Central Hardin scored a third insurance goal midway through the second half with a shot outside the 18-yard box. Senior goalkeeper Kiana Rupe had 10 saves in the match. “Tonight, she came up with some big saves,” Shook said. “I think Kiana — when you got a big game — she seems to shine. She doesn’t let the importance of the game get to her. Kiana does her thing no matter if it’s a playoff game, out-of-league game or a championship game. She does what it takes.”

Paws Corner By Sam Mazzotta Warts Keep Puppy Home From Day Care

DEAR PAW’S CORNER: I have a 1-year-old golden retriever, “Hal,” and he has contracted puppy warts. I have been told there is no treatment for this, and the only recommendations I’ve received are to give him multivitamins and an occasional treat with honey on it. I’m hoping this will clear up in the next few weeks, as I usually put him in doggy day care two or three days a week, and they won’t allow him as this is extremely contagious. Do you have any tips on any other form of treatment that would clear this up? -- Sue, via e-mail DEAR SUE: Unfortunately, because puppy warts are caused by a virus, there is no treatment that will cure Hal quickly. The infection has to clear up on its own. Multivitamins will help keep Hal physically strong so that his immune system keeps working to get rid of the virus, but other than that, time is the only cure. Puppy warts normally clear up after about 45 days. Be sure to just let them go away on their own, and don’t try to remove them yourself. It is inconvenient for your puppy to be banished from day care during this period, but hang in there. If you’re unable to stay with Hal all day or check in on him during your workday, ask a friend to stop in and spend some time with him so he’s not by himself in the house all day. If there’s one bright spot of news, it’s this: Once Hal recovers from puppy warts, he won’t catch them again.

Celebrity Extra By Cindy Elavsky

Q: I am so glad that TLC’s “Little People, Big World” is back on TV. However, I’ve heard that this is the final season. Is that true? I hope not -- I absolutely love this show and the message of love and acceptance it provides. — David D., via e-mail A: I am sorry to tell you, but TLC recently announced that this sixth season will be the show’s last. Stars Matt and Amy Roloff said: “The show has been an amazing and unforgettable experience for our entire family. Viggo Mortensen Over the past five years we have shared the most rewarding journey that will forever be in our hearts. We will always be grateful to our TLC family, and most of all, our fans.” You can catch “Little People, Big World” Monday nights on TLC. Q: Is there a new “Mission: Impossible” movie in the works? — Jerry F., Annapolis, Md. A: There is, indeed. “Mission: Impossible IV” is currently in production, with an anticipated release date of Dec. 16, 2011. Tom Cruise is back as Ethan Hunt, with “The Hurt Locker”’s Jeremy Renner on board as a young operative learning from Ethan, and Paula Patton (real-life wife of singer Robin Thicke) as Ethan’s love interest. The movie also features Jonathan Rhys Myers, Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames. Q: A reader’s question in one of your previous columns made me want to rent “Witness,” with Harrison Ford, Kelly McGillis and Lukas Haas. As I was watching it, I noticed an actor who played one of the young Amish men looked a lot like Viggo Mortensen. I couldn’t read the credits, the print was so small. — Trudy F., Hamilton, Ohio A: That was indeed a young Viggo -- his first role in a major Hollywood production. From there, he went on to land bit parts here and there, until he really made his presence known in a small but pivotal -- and unforgettable -- role as Lucifer in 1995’s “The Prophecy.” You know you’ve made your mark in a film when you share a scene with Christopher Walken, but all eyes are on you! He then went on to co-star in “G.I. Jane,” “28 Days” and “A Walk on the Moon” before hitting superstardom by landing the role of Aragorn in “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy. Up next for Viggo, 51, is the role of Sigmund Freud in “A Dangerous Method.” He’s currently filming “On the Road,” the movie adaptation of the book of the same name by Jack Kerouac. Q: I really like “The Forgotten.” There is suspense without gore, and I like the actors and characters. Will it be back? — Michael M., via e-mail A: ABC has decided not to renew the drama starring Christian Slater due to the ever-popular reason of “low ratings.” Which is a shame, because I really liked it too.

• It was American author and philosopher Eric Hoffer who made the following sage observation: “Rudeness is the weak man’s imitation of strength.” • During the third century, Saint Lawrence of Rome, a deacon to Pope Sixtus II, was burned to death during a series of persecutions of priests and deacons. Legend has it that while he was on the fire, he turned to his executioners and said, “This side’s done; turn me over and have a bite.” It was for this reason that he was named the patron saint of butchers, roasters and comedians. • Most people probably are aware of the fact that Franklin Delano Roosevelt is the only American president who was elected to more than two terms in office -- he served three full terms and died during his fourth term in office. Despite the fact that he was an incredibly popular president, however, in none of his four elections did he carry his home county of Dutchess, New York. • If you have a severe food allergy, peanuts are the most common culprit, followed, in order, by shellfish, fish, tree nuts and eggs. • Thought for the Day: “Computers are incredibly fast, accurate and stupid.

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although practical situations continue to dominate this week, there’s time for the Lamb to indulge in the fun things in life -- like maybe taking a special someone out for a great evening. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This week favors relationships. Take time to renew old ones, and make time to go where new friends can be found. On a more practical note, expect news about a business deal. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You should be seeing some progress on that new workplace situation. Meanwhile, family matters might demand more attention, and you’ll want to set aside time to deal with them. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A relationship suddenly might present some challenges you never expected. After talking things out, you might want to consider taking some time to assess what you’ve learned. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A disappointing response to a request might dampen the Lion’s spirits. But you might want to ask the reasons behind it. What you learn can be of great importance in a future undertaking. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A once-volatile situation should be settled by now, giving you a chance to refocus on a project you’ve been planning for. Look for an interested party to rally to your support. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A business matter that unexpectedly turns into a personal situation could create complications. Best to resolve the matter now before too much harm can be done. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Emotions can run high when they involve personal matters that no one really wants to talk about. But this could be a good time to create the means to a workable outcome. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A positive response to a workplace request could lead the way to other long-sought changes. Congratulations. A personal situation also takes a welcome turn. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Patience pays off, as that once-overwhelming work situation continues to become easier to handle on a one-by-one basis. Look for positive news from a colleague. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) It might be a good idea to take more time to reassess your next move in working out a complex situation. You could benefit from a new perspective on the matter. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might want to consider making time to discuss a change of plans with everyone concerned. Be prepared to explain your actions. Also be prepared to listen to alternatives. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a strong sense of what is right, and you try to work from that foundation. Friends see you as reliable.

New this year was also a school category in which the judges were asked to vote. Proceeds from the event will be given to schools across the region participating in NASP. Overall Winners: 1st – Deer Bacon Wraps by Chris Cornett and David Allbright 2nd – Deer BLTs by Marty Webb, Webb’s Butcher Block

Photo exhibit shows off equestrian athltes from royalty to young riders Submitted by Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games

LEXINGTON — Prepare to be inspired at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Lexington, this September 25-October 10. During the Games, the governing body of international horse sport, the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI), will unveil an innovative photographic celebration of equestrianism featuring 16 images of inspirational legends alongside the up and coming stars of the sport — including royalty and even the daughter of American rock legend Bruce Springsteen, young rider Jessica Springsteen. The exhibit, aptly named Inspire, will be housed in the Alltech Experience Pavilion on the grounds of the Kentucky Horse Park and be available to all ticketholders during the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. Inspire will showcase athletes from all Alltech FEI Games disciplines — Jumping, Dressage, Para-Equestrian Dressage, Eventing, Driving, Endurance, Vaulting, and Reining — in surprising yet eloquent contexts, many of which incorporate subtle or playful

references to their sport. Provocative, contemporary, and striking, the images will spark discussion, interpretation and reflection. Inspire, the fruit of a yearlong endeavor by photographers Liz Gregg, Kit Houghton, and Simon Charlton, will also play tribute to the geographical spread of 133 National Federations affiliated with the FEI, featuring such subjects as: - HRH The Princess Royal with Zara Phillips (GBR, Eventing) - Jessica Springsteen and Beezie Madden (USA, Jumping) - Rodrigo and Nelson Pessoa (BRA, Jumping) - Laurentia Tan (SIN, ParaEquestrian Dressage) - Hussain Al Marzooqi and Ali Mohammed Al Marzooqi (UAE, Endurance) - European Junior Reining Champions (ITA) - Natalia Berezhnaya (RUS, Dressage) - Ijsbrand and Bram Chardon (NED, Driving) Commenting on Inspire, FEI Secretary General Alex McLin said, “We are thrilled and grateful that Alltech is hosting the FEI’s innovative exhibition, which is part of our continued commitment to encouraging and inspir-

ing riders around the world in every discipline. This contemporary exhibition highlights the love, respect, passion and diversity that are inherent to our sport.” “The Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games are not just about the world championships of eight equestrian sports,” said Dr. Pearse Lyons. “For 16 days this autumn, the world is coming together in Kentucky to celebrate a common passion for horses and the spirit of top competition, and this joyous occasion will be marked by entertainment, world-class exhibits, food, fun for all ages, and art, including this amazing and appropriately named photographic exhibition from the FEI.” Global animal health and nutrition leader Alltech is the proud title sponsor of the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games to be held in Lexington, KY, USA from Sept. 25– Oct. 10. Visit the official site of the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games at www. or call 888-934-2010 for complete information about the event and to purchase tickets while they are still available.
