GOP takes county’s top spot, three magistrate seats to gain control

In a race that could not have gotten much closer, State Rep. Jeff Greer won re-election Tuesday night to his 27th District seat over Republican challenger Dalton Jantzen. The final total put Greer on top by only 128 votes with a final vote tally of 6,219 to 6,091. Greer also carried Meade County 4,966 to 4,492. “It has been a tremendous honor to serve this district the last four years,” Greer said. “I’m so thankful to the voters of the district for sending me back to Frankfort. I will continue to do the best job that I can. I’m extremely excited.” Greer lamented that there was so much negativity in the campaign. “This particular election, anything that could have been lined up negatively against me was lined up,” Greer said. He noted that it was a tough election

Historic power shift on Fiscal Court

By Brian Graves The News Standard

Meade County voters joined the Republican tidal wave as they assisted in Senator-elect Rand Paul’s significant victory and helped return a GOP incumbent to the U.S. House. In statewide totals, Paul racked up an impressive 12 point margin over his challenger, Attorney General Jack Conway, winning 56 to 44 percent. Most national media called the race for Paul within an hour of state polls closing. County voters also chose Paul, giving him a victory margin of almost eight percent. “I have a message,” Paul began in his victory speech. “It’s a message from the people of Kentucky. A message that is loud and clear and does not mince words — we’ve come to take our government back.” The race garnered national attention and headlines for its often rough and tumble campaigns. But, Conway, in his concession, proved gracious and said he had a very good conversation with Paul after the race had been called. “We ought to wish him well as he tries to do right by our state, and we ought to be helpful in that regard,”

Meade County Republicans shook the local political landscape by gaining the county’s top job and securing half of the six magistrate seats. Former state representative Gerry Lynn’s election as judge/executive made history as he became the first Republican ever to hold the position. Lynn defeated Becky Flaherty 5,115 to 4,338. He outpaced Flaherty at all but four of the county’s 18 precincts. Flaherty carried Payneville, Battletown, Wolf Creek-Concordia, and Flaherty. For a race many considered could have been close, the margin was impressive with Lynn getting 54.11 percent of the vote to Flaherty’s 45.89. “I got here by a lot of people helping,” Lynn said. “I just felt led to run. Six years ago, I was state representative and that was a meaningful experience and I felt like I learned a lot and did a lot of good things for the county and looking at what was coming up this year, Nancy and I decided to run where I could help the county the best.” Lynn mentioned items that will be coming across his desk as he takes the reigns of county government. “There’s a whole lot of things on the horizon — BRAC is one, economic development is another and probably the major thing and they are both See POWER, Page A2

Brady leaves four-legged friends By Brian Graves The News Standard Tom Brady spent his last day as Meade County Animal Control Officer doing something he enjoys — taking care of animals and then finding a home for one. After more than five years, Brady stepped down from his position last Friday and was given a retirement party at the courthouse with friends and colleagues.

Power From page A1 connected. One drives the other. Economic development drives everything,” Lynn said. The judge/executiveelect said he believes the new balance on Fiscal Court is good for the county. “I think it’s a good thing,” Flynn said. “I think we can all work together. I feel like now that we’re elected, we’re a non-partisan working court and I think we can do good things for Meade County working together as a team.” The historic judge/executive election came by the decision of nearly 54 percent of the county’s registered voters to cast ballots in this year’s election. According to the county clerk’s office, 9,670 cast ballots in this election. That is 716 more than participated in the 2006 elections. Meade County Sheriff William “Butch” Kerrick found the road back to office with a much more comfortable margin than the one vote that elected him four years ago. Kerrick surpassed former sheriff and opponent Cliff Wise by a vote of 4,923 to 4, 235 — a seven percent margin. “This feels great,” Kerrick said. “I just can’t wait to get started on a new term. I just want to keep working hard like we have been. That’s the number one effort of mine. That’s my whole goal.” Three incumbent magistrates found themselves on the down side of the voting as the ballots were totaled. In District 1, Magistrate Tom Goddard lost his seat to newcomer Chris Cottrell. The Democrat beat Goddard by a narrow margin of 72 votes — 571 to 489. District 2 Magistrate Herbert “Herbie” Chism had a tough night as Republican Mitch Shortt defeated

him by a vote of 1,017 to 789. Those numbers mean Shortt received more than 56 percent of the vote from the 2nd magisterial district of Rock Haven, Doe Valley and Weldon. Republican Gary Chapman defeated incumbent Tony Staples to take the District 4 magistrate seat by a vote of 957 to 894. Chapman said his victory was in part due to the national conservative wave and expressed his priorities as he enters office. “I think the biggest thing we are expected to do is get some jobs,” Chapman said. “Economic development is the big thing as well as working on the tax structure.” Chapman said he felt the new court would be able to work together. “I think we’ll have good cooperation on Fiscal Court,” Chapman said. District 3 Magistrate Mark Hubbard barely won re-election as his opponent, Republican Gale Delano gave him a close race with the incumbent scoring only 42 votes more than his opponent, 754 to 712. In District 5, incumbent Steve Wardrip won another term on Fiscal Court after outdoing Democrat Harold Davidson 912 to 669. That race was a rematch from four years ago and this year showed Wardrip scoring five percentage points higher than the 2006 race. District 6 Magistrate Randall Hardesty had an easier time than others as he defeated newcomer Debra Masterson 956 to 598. The two major county positions in which Democrats did score were the races for jailer and county attorney. Incumbent Troy Seelye was able to defeat Carlton “Daryl” Haynes 5,188 to 4,231 to win a third term as county jailer. Incumbent County Attorney Margaret Matney was defeated for a second term by Jessica Brown

Retire From page A1

Craycroft presented Brady with a plaque and thanked him for his years of service in a difficult job. When prodded to make a speech, Brady at first only said “Thank you.” But after a little prodding, he did go on to praise his coworkers and gave a heartfelt thanks to everyone for their support over the years. “It wasn’t hard coming to work with good friends,” Brady said. “You couldn’t ask for better people to work for or with.” He did repeat a humorous piece of advice he gave to his successor, Jaspin Hardesty, who assumed the full duties of the position on Monday. “It’s easy to get along with the animals,” Brady said. “It’s the humans that can be hard.” Brady acknowledged the job of an animal control officer could be an emotional one. “It’s emotional,” Brady said. “I have woke up in the middle of the night.” He said it was tough when an animal had to be put down. “You hate to do it,” he said.

Former Meade County Animal Control Officer Tom Brady says thank you at his retirement party last Friday. “Sometimes, you have to do it. But, I hope I’ve opened the door to the county going to a non-euthanasia program some day. I realize there is a problem with having the money, but I hope it can happen some day.”

“There is one thing I can say,” Brady said. “99 percent of them I had to put down knew they were loved.” Anyone looking to adopt a pet can contact the Meade County Animal Control at 270-422-2064.

parking lot on Oct. 20. The wallet, which belonged to Terhia Radaszewski contained cash and debit cards. Brandenburg City Police Sgt. Scotty Singleton and Officer Ray Whited conducted an investigation, in which it was discovered a debit card belonging to Radaszewski had been used at a local business. Video surveillance taken from the business and other areas led police to identify Templin as a suspect.

He was charged with theft by unlawful taking from auto, two counts of 2nd degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, three counts of fraudulent use of a credit card under $500 and tampering with physical evidence. The Brandenburg Police Department also wants to remind citizens that with the holiday season fast approaching, crimes of opportunity are a common occurrence and could increase dramatically.

“I intend to hit the ground running and improve cold check collection, child support enforcement and get those things up and running,” Roberts said. Republicans will also hold the constable offices in Districts 1, 2, and 3 while Democrats will serve in the remaining three districts. The new terms for coun-

ty officials will begin when they take office Jan. 2. In the three judicial races, Meade County failed to go with the eventual winners. For the 46th District Commonwealth Attorney, David Williams won over Susan Streible 53 percent to 40 percent. Meade County voters gave the candidates the opposite numbers. Kenneth Harold Goff II won the 46th District

Judge position over Steve Crebessa 53 to 47 percent. Goff only scored 37 percent of Meade County voters while Crebessa received 63 percent. Brandenburg City Attorney Darren Sipes carried his home county over Shan Embry for the 46th District Judge Division 2 by a slim margin of 50 to 49, but lost the race with a district total 56 to 44 percent.

“The decision”

Taxpayers tap out on water rate relief Jim Waters Bluegrass Beacon A recent contentious Public Service Commission hearing in northern Kentucky offers yet another reminder that Jack Conway, attorney general, needs to take seriously his responsibility to protect the commonwealth from federal regulatory onslaughts. Officials called the Oct. 14 hearing at Thomas More College to gather public input on a request by the Northern Kentucky Water District to flood customers with a whopping 25-percent rate hike. While some of the $8 million the increase would raise would go to the water district’s equivalent of repairing sagging pipes and leaky faucets, a major chunk would help appease the Environmental Protection Agency and its wacko regulations. The current political atmosphere leaves little breathing room for big-government types. So, one can understand why ratepayers who took time out of their busy lives to attend this

worse if they don’t comply with EPA regulations. Causing most of the fuss: a regulation that requires water utilities nationwide to eliminate “disinfection byproducts” that can remain in treated water. The “DBP” represents a miniscule amount of chemicals, and the requirement amounts to EPA overkill, chemical engineer Monica Roberts of Crestview Hills told the PSC — or at least she told the microphone that apparently the statutes allow the PSC to provide. Roberts said it reminded her of a recent stay in Anchorage, Alaska. The city offered such clean water that in a panic to comply with an EPA requirement to “filter our water and clean up the contaminants by 30 percent,” the municipality ended up polluting the water itself with fish remains. Yes, it created something to clean up — all on the taxpayers’ dime. “I feel like this is where this is going, and I think it just needs to stop,” she said. Conway could fight it. But so far, you could make a better backbone out of a banana than he’s shown with regard to pushing against Washington’s unreasonable mandates.

That’s as clear as Northern Kentucky’s treated water. Ron Lovan, Northern Kentucky Water president and chief executive officer, told Kentucky EnquirerCommunity Recorder reporter Mike Rutledge that the water contaminants equate “a grain of salt in an Olympic-sized swimming pool.” Roberts wants Kentucky via Conway to dive into the battle with 15 states “now joining together to either non-comply or to intercept federal funds so that we can use some of the tax money that we’re actually sending to Washington to offset the federal unfunded mandates that we’re being burdened with.” Conway won’t even stick a toe in the pool. “We need an attorney general that’s going to stand up for us,” she said. Yes we do, Monica. But the chances of that appear about as likely as Northern Kentucky’s drinking water making anyone sick. — Jim Waters is vice president of policy and communications for the Bluegrass Institute, Kentucky’s freemarket think tank.

What does Texas know that Washington doesn’t? Rich Lowry National Review Texas already looms large in its own imagination. Its elevated self-image didn’t need this: More than half of the net new jobs in the U.S. during the past 12 months were created in the Lone Star State. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 214,000 net new jobs were created in the United States from August 2009 to August 2010. Texas created 119,000 jobs during the same period. If every state in the country performed as well, we’d have created about 1.5 million jobs nationally during the past year, and maybe “stimulus” wouldn’t be such a dirty word. What does Austin know that Washington doesn’t? At

California nearly canceled out Texas’ job creation all by itself, losing 112,000 net jobs. Its unemployment rate is above 12 percent. Texas is a model of governmental restraint. In 2008, state and local expenditures were 25.5 percent of GDP in California, 22.8 in the U.S., and 17.3 in Texas. Back in 1987, levels of spending were roughly similar in these places. Less spending means fewer taxes. Texas doesn’t have an income tax — in contrast to California’s highly progressive income tax -- and it is among the 10 lowest tax states in the country. Its regulatory burden is low across the board, and it’s a right-to-work state that enacted significant tort reform. It is true that Texas enjoys bountiful oil and natural gas reserves, but its attitude toward those resources is what’s most important — “if you got ‘em, use ‘em.” If

its simplest: Don’t overtax and overspend, keep regulations to a minimum, avoid letting unions and trial lawyers run riot, and display an enormous neon sign saying, “Open for Business.” At bottom, the struggle between national Republicans and Democrats is over whether the country will adopt a version of the Texas model, or of the Michigan, New York or California model. Will government allow the private sector to thrive, or stifle growth with its hyperactivity and favoritism for anti-business interests? It’s not as though Texas has been exempt from the Great Recession. Its unemployment rate is 8.3 percent — high, if beneath the national rate of 9.6. It faces a recession-driven shortfall of roughly $15 billion for its next two-year budget, a significant challenge to its low-tax ways. During the past 12 months,

only the Obama administration’s Department of the Interior agreed. In Texas in recent decades, the watch-words have been prudence and stability in the course of nurturing a probusiness environment, while California has undergone a self-immolation that President Barack Obama wants to replay nationally. Joel Kotkin writes of California in the City Journal, “During the second half of the 20th century, the state shifted from an older progressivism, which emphasized infrastructure investment and business growth, to a newer version, which views the private sector much the way the Huns viewed a city — as something to be sacked and plundered.” With predictable results. For policymakers wanting to restart the American jobs machine, forget the Alamo. Keep in mind the Texas model.

hearing became increasingly irritated as the meeting wore on. First, they discovered that the “Public” part of the PSC has largely evaporated. Then the water district support for the public dried up. Meanwhile, a representative from the Attorney General’s Office showed up, but he didn’t speak up for residents, either. Everyone seems to have a reason for remaining voiceless. PSC officials say that state statute requires the commission to remain neutral, so it cannot take the side of ratepayers or those seeking an increase. We’ll see about that. The only way to know for sure if the commission “balances” the interest of taxpayers is if they vote to deny – or at least reduce – the rate increase requested. Ratepayers wanted to talk with the commissioners who receive six-figure salaries, courtesy of taxpayers. However, the statute apparently doesn’t allow that, either. Water district officials treaded water. They need to replace pipes that in some cases are 120 years old. And they face fines and possibly


Throughout the years, those in Meade County who politically wore the letter “R” came to feel it was a “scarlet letter” of sorts. It was a designation that became, in most cases, a roadblock to election for public service. Tuesday night, that all changed. A Republican will now fill the office of judge/executive, the top county office, for the first time in history. And, for the first time in memory, the fiscal court will have three Republicans sitting as magistrates. With Republicans filling the judge/executive role and half of the six magistrate seats, the party can truthfully say they have won control of fiscal court. Local Republicans have every right to celebrate after the feeling of being in the local political wilderness for generations. But, more properly, it’s the Meade County voters who deserve the biggest cheers. Cheers deserved not because they gave Republicans the county’s administrative powers, but because they showed they would not be boxed in by party when making their decision on who should preside over the business of Meade County. The outward appearance of Tuesday’s results is Meade County voters took the time to examine the issues and the candidates and, in a way, wanted to fine tune the car no matter where they found the right parts. Also, much to the county voters’ credit, they turned out in above average numbers — more than half of Meade County’s registered voters made the effort to cast their ballots. The total number of voters went more than 700 beyond that of the 2006 race. It is necessary to note that not every Republican won and not every Democrat lost. But, there is now some semblance of a balance of ideas that has seemingly not existed in county government. With all the problems and challenges facing local government, a mix of experience and new ideas has to be a good thing. Judge/Executive-elect Gerry Lynn set exactly the right tone when he said, “I think we can all work together. I feel like now that we’re elected, we’re a non-partisan working court and I think we can do good things for Meade County working together as a team.” We hope that idea of teamwork persists during the next four years and it is encouraging that all of those who will serve this next term have publicly said economic development should be the top priority. They are right and should not delay in that work. Just as it was good teamwork that carried our proud Greenwaves to a district football championship, the right teamwork can do unimaginable good for the citizens of Meade County. Not only the teamwork of the court will be necessary, but the teamwork of its citizens is also called upon. The responsibility of those not in public office does not stop once a vote is cast. There is no excuse for an empty courthouse or council chamber when these public bodies are in session. The voices of the citizens are not something that should be heard only one day every four years, and the voices of the voters should be one that remains active and informed about the actions of government — not just the consumers of political advertising. Government should be held accountable every day and not just election day. It is a vital part of the process that citizens maintain their curiosity and questioning when it comes to the day-to-day operations of its government and those officials who are charged with the responsibility of making it work. These are going to be an interesting and complicated four years. Only good wishes and prayers for success follow our county’s new management team as they prepare to begin their tasks. And, the first assignment for the successful candidates — as well as those who fell short — is to please remove your campaign signs as soon as possible. That is an effort guaranteed to bring instant appreciation from both parties and all Meade Countians.

Hawking book discounts idea of God as creator David Yount Amazing Grace According to famed physicist Stephen Hawking, the God of faith is one God too many — utterly irrelevant in accounting for the physical universe’s existence. Some 20 years ago in his blockbuster book, “A Brief History of Time,” Hawking allowed that the idea of God as creator of the universe was not incompatible with science. He also believed it possible that human reason might come to know the mind of God. Since then, he has changed

his mind. In “The Grand Design,” written with Leonard Mlodinow and released in September, he rejects the notion that a divine creator accounts for the universe’s existence. “Because there is a law such as gravity,” he writes, “the universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist.” Britain’s atheists are delighted with Hawking’s direct assault on creationism, which follows from his belief in the existence of a vast number of different universes, not just one to be mankind’s home. In short, if God intended to create human beings, why

would he waste the energy to create billions of universes beyond our own? Major religions have maintained all along that God created the universe out of nothing. Now, Hawking lends supposedly scientific respectability to the same notion by positing spontaneous creation from the law of gravity in place of God. Religious thinkers have pounced on Hawking’s new premise. John Polkinghorne, an eminent physicist who became a clergyman, asks where gravity came from to account for a godless universe. Britain’s most celebrated atheist, Richard Dawkins, admitted in The Sunday Times of London on Sept. 5: “OK, it may be that we need some-

thing to start with, which is gravity. That’s fine. But it’s very different from saying that we need a creative intelligence that not only created the universe, but also forgives your sins, having died for them, listens to your prayers, regularly turns himself into a wafer, and cares passionately what you do, and even think, every second of your life.” Hawking’s new theory of the Big Bang holds that spontaneous creation did not need a creator but only fundamental forces or laws. But where did they come from if not from a creator? David Robertson, a minister of the Free Church of Scotland, faults Hawking for urging his followers to have faith in the existence of a multi-verse. “We

Don’t speed your way through life Randy Johnson Pastor’s Spotlight A jealous husband hired a detective to check on the daily activities of his wife. He wanted more than just a verbal or written report, he wanted picture and video. About a week later, the

detective returned with a video camera and they sat down to watch it. Although the quality wasn’t professional and it was a little grainy, it was plain to see that his wife was meeting another man. He saw them laughing in a park. He saw them enjoying themselves at an outdoor café. One part of the video showed them having fun in a local dimly lit restau-

rant. He saw the man and his wife enjoying themselves in at least a dozen different activities. “I can’t believe it,” said the man. “What’s not to believe,” said the detective. “It’s right there on the video for you to see.” “That’s not it,” said the man. “I just can’t believe my wife could be that much fun.” Isn’t it amazing how often we overlook and take for granted the one’s we



are always told that science is about empirical evidence,” he writes in the Times. “Well, now Stephen Hawking is asking us to have faith, because there is no empirical evidence for a multi-verse.” Moreover, Hawking insists that God (if he existed) would never have bothered to create a multi-verse. Instead, he would have stopped after creating the universe that serves as home to his creatures. Speaking for myself, I much prefer an extravagant creator to a stingy God.

New Brandenburg Baptist Church took a chance to relax, as well as showcase some pretty neat cars Saturday, Oct. 23. People gathered in the church’s parking lot to view almost 30 displays of vehicles that portrayed some versatility and uniqueness. Cars ranging from antique Cadillacs to new age trucks were available for patrons to browse and vote for their favorite vehicle. Some tractors and mowers were even available to vote on. Hot dogs, chili dogs, nachos and drinks were offered. Music was provided by Roy Druck. All funds received from the event went straight back into the youth fund at the church. Door prizes, as well we gift certificates to Culvers, were awarded. New Brandenburg Baptist Church is located at 115 Baptist Church Lane. For more information about events or services call 270-422-3389. ABOVE: Darryl Priest browses one of the many cars showcased at the car show.

If God can’t find any workers, he most likely will not send the rain Dan Newton Divine Guidance Genesis 2:5 says, “No shrub of the field had yet [grown] on the land, and no plant of the field had yet sprouted, for the Lord God had not made it rain on the land, and there was no man to work the ground.” (HCSB) There was seed, and there was sun; yet the earth was still barren. In fact, everything was present to create and maintain the lush vegetation that would one day characterize the earth’s surface, except for two things: there was neither rain nor worker. This principle is as true in the spiritual world as it is in the natural world. As we survey the earth today, it is not hard to find

places on this planet that are physically barren; there are also many places that are spiritually barren. Whether these places are high schools, college campuses, neighborhoods, businesses, cities, or nations, all of our prayers for them seem to be in vain. Could it be when we think we are waiting on God, in reality God is waiting on us? What is he waiting for? Could it be that God desires to send the worker before he sends the water? If Scripture, and the annals of history, are any indicator, many times this is the case. You and I must never forget that the spiritual rains of revival and outpouring can only bring to the surface what the church has faithfully sown. If God cannot find a worker, many times he will not send the rain. Could it be that you

are one of these missing workers? Like John the Baptist, maybe you have been called by God to do the hard work it takes to prepare a dry and barren place for God’s move (Luke 1:17).

Public library offers online language courses Submitted by Meade County Public Library Most people know that each of these words is a form of greeting in its respective language. French, Spanish, Chinese and Japanese, in that order, to be exact. Most people probably wouldn’t know how to say much else. Here is another thing they probably don’t know. Internationally, nearly seventy percent of people are bilingual. In the United States, that number is only nine percent. Why is that number so low? It’s not because people don’t want to learn a second language. Instead it’s because people think it’s too hard, or will take too much time, or will cost too much money. None of those reasons apply now because the Meade County Public Library recently added Mango Languages to its list of resources. Mango is a simple, easyto-use language learning program that is offered online and is the most effective way to learn a language. It’s not just about learning words and phrases. It’s fun. The courses are presented with an appreciation for cultural nuance and real-world application that integrates components of grammar and culture. Students learn actual

conversation, breaking down complex conversational elements within an audio-visual framework that allows the user to draw important connections between pieces of information they have already learned. Mango is available in two versions. One is Mango Complete, a 100-lesson course that is designed to provide a full understanding of an entire language and its culture. It is available in nine foreign language and three ESL courses. The second is Mango Basic, which teaches everyday greetings, gratitudes, goodbyes and helpful phrases in a short period of time and is designed to appeal to a beginner in a new language. The courses, which require only two to five hours of time to complete, are currently available in 22 foreign languages and 14 English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. “We are thrilled to add our library to the growing list of libraries across the country who have added Mango to their resources,” said Rachel Baelz, library director. “Some people need to learn a second language for business or travel reasons. Others just want to because they think it would be interesting. No matter the reason, learning the language should be fun. With Mango, it

definitely is.” To learn more about Mango and get a preview of what the program has to offer, you can visit the company’s website at www.mangolanguages. com. Even better, if you have your library card and have access to the internet, you can access the actual courses remotely from anywhere.

and 1.5 inches, did very little to stifle drought affecting the area. Meade County, which has been in the grip of a drought since the later part of the summer, received a moderate amount of rainfall. The region was declared a Level 2 drought area in late August and was upgraded to the more severe Level 1 status in last

month. A level 2 drought designation indicates that severe impacts can be expected in designated areas. Those impacts can include an increased number and intensity of wildfires, significant damage to agricultural interests, water supply shortages and severe stress on other water-sensitive sectors, the release stated.

Rain does little to quench drought in county Staff Report The News Standard

A rain, which immersed parts of the state last Monday and Tuesday, had a short-term effect on a drought which has gripped much of the state, according to a Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet press release last week. The rainfall, which reached totals between 0.5

Three local city council, mayor races were determined during Tuesday night’s elections Staff Report The News Standard Incumbent Muldraugh Mayor Danny Tate retained his position after the votes from this week’s mid-term election were tallied. Of the four other candidates, current Muldraugh City Council member Kenneth Toler was the only one who truly gave Tate a run for his money. Toler garnered 66 votes to Tate’s 85. A total of 256 votes were cast in the race. Muldraugh City Council was adjusted slightly by the election as two new members were elected. Judy Compton

Greer From page A1 year for Democrats, especially with the popularity of Republican Sen.-Elect Rand Paul. “I tried to maintain the high road,” Greer said. “Thankfully, enough folks respected the kind of campaign I ran to put me over the top.” Greer added that while he felt the accusations made about his record were unfair, he wanted to put the campaign behind and go back to work. “I want to be a gentleman

and Glenna Reese won two seats on the council. Incumbent council members Pat Reese and Joseph Noon Sr. retained their seats on the council. Gwynne Ison was elected in an uncontested Ekron Mayor’s race. Charlotte Nichols, Cecilia Betlej, Joyce McHolan and Cory Trent all won seats as Ekron City Commissioners. David Pace won the Brandenburg City Mayor’s race, which was also unopposed. Bruce Fackler, Margaret Love, William Basham, Patricia Lusk, Carol Nelson and Scotty Applegate all won seats on the Brandenburg City Council.

about this,” Greer said. He said the first thing he wants to do is attempt to get legislation passed he worked on last year that would raise the mandatory age of Kentucky students to 18 before they could leave school. “A kid that quits school at 16 makes their opportunities so minimum,” Greer said. “We need to do better. Kids are not mature enough to make that decision. Usually, they wind up in jail and in trouble and can’t get a job. We’re allowing that to happen.” He acknowledged the biggest challenge the next state legislature will face is the

state budget. “We didn’t get what we were told we were going to get in Medicaid and that’s made a huge challenge for us,” Greer said. “Fortunately, we’ve not laid off any state workers and have reduced the size of state government.” He said he would also like to further investigate the potential of gaming as a source of new revenue. Greer will return to a state house with seven fewer Democratic colleagues after Tuesday’s results, but the Dems retain control of the lower body with a count of 58 to 42.

Meade Countians also gave a boost to U.S. Rep. Brett Guthrie, who was returned to his House seat by a 2-1 margin over his opponent Ed Marksberry. Across the 2nd District, Guthrie received 151,604 votes, while Marksberry had 71,812. The incumbent had almost the same margins in the county with 64 percent of the votes cast. Guthrie will return to

Washington, D.C. as part of the new Republican majority. The GOP is projected to have 60 new congressmen when the new legislative session begins after the first of the year and it is widely anticipated Rep. John Boehner, the current GOP leader of the House, will be selected to replace Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi as the new speaker of the House.

A level 1 drought status indicates that the state has officially designated a prolonged dry period as a drought. Soil moisture, vegetative health and low fire fuel moisture are primarily affected. Designated areas may experience serious impacts to agricultural water needs, an increased wildfire risk and other water-sensitive sectors, the release added.

State police target aggressive drivers with new campaign

Submitted by Kentucky State Police FRANKFORT — The KSP Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division kicked off the 2010 Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Trucks (TACT) campaign today in an effort to crackdown on motorists driving recklessly around commercial trucks and on trucks violating traffic laws. The first wave of the campaign will run through December and focus on routes heavily traveled by commercial trucks throughout the Commonwealth. KSP will partner with Louisville Metro Police Department, Lexington Police Department and Boone County Sheriff’s Office to accelerate the implementation of the campaign. “We are determined to reduce both fatal and non-fatal crashes on our highways,” KSP Commissioner Rodney Brewer said. “Our agency will work alongside local law enforcement partners to provide increased patrols where commercial truck crashes are predominant.” Officers will look for aggressive driving behaviors such as following too close; unsafe lane changes; speeding and not leaving enough space when passing large trucks. Brewer said that most people simply don’t understand the dangers of big-rigs.  “A car traveling 80 miles per hour only needs 160 feet to stop,” Brewer explained.  “A commercial truck driving at that same rate of speed behind that car would take somewhere between 800 and 1200 feet to stop.” “Highway safety is a shared responsibility. This enforcement blitz will boost efforts to pre-

vent tragedies on Kentucky’s main arteries of transportation and serve as a reminder that all motorists need to think about their driving habits each time they get behind the wheel,” Brewer ssadded. The TACT program is funded and administered through the Federal Motor Carriers Safety Administration (FMCSA). Kentucky joins Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Montana, Nevada, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington as one of the FMCSA selected states for the TACT project. Crash statistics from KSP indicate that 70 percent of fatal crashes involving large trucks are caused by passenger vehicles. Last year Kentucky had over 8,000 crashes involving commercial vehicles resulting in 114 deaths. Brewer said Education is a key component to the success of the campaign. “Public service announcements, radio spots, specially-wrapped trailers, road signs, fuel pump advertising and social media will all be used to convey the safe driving messages for TACT,” re Brewer marked. “For motorists who travel Kentucky interstates each day, a crash involving a tractor trailer can cause extensive travel delays, especially when the crash is fatal for a driver or passengers. We want to reduce travel delays by reducing the number of crashes between passenger cars and commercial vehicles,” he noted. Citizens can contribute to highway safety by reporting erratic drivers to the Kentucky State Police toll-free at 800-222-5555. Callers will remain anonymous and should give a description of the vehicle, location, direction of travel and license number if possible.

FEATURES Payneville Elementary tackles the Gulf clean-up

Friday, November 5, 2010

A10 - The News Standard

Dear Editor, At Payneville our science teacher Mrs. Whelan heard about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Well she decided to ask her intermediate classes to think of a way to clean up oil in water. Everyone had really good ideas. Here is one experiment that was one that worked the best which is a coffee filter. It held the oil and let the water go through. Now here are some that didn’t work cake mix, rabbit food, and corn starch. One that works was dia mond but it absorbs the oil and water. Toast worked but the fish will eat it. We had a lot of fun in doing this experiment. Sincerely, Lauren Millay 5th Grade Student

Dear Editor, Mrs. Whelan’s classes did experiments on the oil spill in the Gulf. The experiments we did with different materials. Some of the experiments work and didn’t. A lot of us brought in different things like chicken feed or pig feed, someone even brought their hair! A bunch of things couldn’t work because they weren’t buoyant. A few buoyant things worked like cotton balls. Cotton balls will work for the Gulf because they are buoyant and soak up the oil very well. A lot of materials will work buy aren’t buoyant. If the materials aren’t buoyant the fish might eat it or it won’t be picking up. Something’s will reach the pint of saturation and will let out all of the oil it has absorbed. Sincerely, Emily Vaughn 4th Grade Student

Dear Editor, For the past three and half weeks Mrs. Whelan’s intermediate class has been working on the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. First, we soaked our hands in a mixture of oil and water and the experience was unpleasant at best. After that, we had to come up with ideas of how to clean up the oil, my idea was pizza crust which worked on an oil to crust ratio of 2:1. Some other things were cat litter (worked 1:2), oil dry (worked 1:2), and birdseed (didn’t work). Cat litter would not be good to use in the gulf because it would absorb water too, and mine would not work because it has too many ingredients but it might work in the pipes. Finally, birdseed wouldn’t work because it floats and it’s nonabsorbent.

When Payneville Elementary students were asked to tackle the problem of the oil spill clean-up on the Gulf Coast, they responded with experiments and original ideas. Students watched a video about the Gulf oil spill and then were asked to determine an environmentally friendly way to clean up oil in water. This page contains letters to the Editor with many of their ideas and experiments. Great job, Payneville!

Dear Editor, What would be a good way to clean up the oil in the Gulf of Mexico? ?????????????? We need something that the organisms in the water won’t eat and that is buoyant (something that floats). Well I know something that we could use.......... Coffee filters! The reason I think that we could use coffee filters is because coffee filters are buoyant and the organisms in the water won’t eat it. I know that coffee filters would be a good thing to use for the oil spill, because Mrs. Whelan’s intermediate class at Payneville Elementary did an experiment on ways to clean up the oil spill. Out of all of the experiments that we did this is the one that I think worked perfect! Sincerely, Katlyn Swink 6th Grade Student

Dear Editor, Since the beginning of school, the intermediate students at Payneville Elementary have been studying the oil spill. My favorite part was performing an experiment. We had to come up with material that we thought would do the best to absorb oil. Lauren Millay and I decided to use powdered laundry detergent. We thought it would absorb oil because it cleans clothes well. These are the steps to our experiment: First we put 2 cups of water in the plastic bowl followed by .5 a cup of oil and .5 a cup of powdered laundry detergent. Then we let it sit close to 15 minutes. It didn’t turn out the way I expected. The laundry powder clumped together and floated to the top. Lauren and I concluded that ours would have worked if we added more laundry powder. Someone in a different class also used laundry powder and it worked. They had used more laundry powder. We had a great time performing our experiment. Sincerely, Emma Barr 5th Grade Student

Sincerely, Jenna Duke 4th Grade Student

Dear Editor, Since the beginning of this school year Mrs. Whelan’s intermediate classes have been learning about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. We started off by putting our hands in buckets of oil and touching tar balls so we knew what the fist had to suffer through. Then we drew pictures and watched videos about the oil spill. After we learned more about the oil spill we got to experiment on how to clean it up. Some of the experiments included rice, baking soda, cornstarch, kitty litter, oil dry, flour, straw, bread, bird seed, chicken feed, and pig feed. Some of them would almost work to clean up the oil spill but there were still a few problems with them, such as chicken feed and kitty litter. If you used chicken feed it would soak up the oil but the fish would eat it. If you used kitty litter it would absorb the water and the oil then sink to the bottom of the ocean. One thing that did work was an oil dry sheet. It absorbed oil but it doesn’t soak up the water. We also learned that if you used something that is not buoyant you can attach something that is buoyant to it to make it float. We have had a lot of fun learning this year with Mrs. Whelan so far. Sincerely, Liz Fackler 6th Grade Student

Dear Editor, Since the start of school Mrs. Whelan’s intermediate classes have been learning about the oil spill in the Gulf. First, we watched a video on the disaster in the Gulf that showed all the machines that the scientists from BP and the government have been using to clean it up and how it can destroy the environment. Second, we put our hands in oily water to see how the aquatic animals in the Gulf feel. Then, when we cleaned our hands off really well they still felt oily. Last, we did experiment with different things to see how to clean up the oil spill in the Gulf. Things that didn’t work were rice, coffee strainers, oil dry sheets, oil dry, cotton balls, hair, and sawdust. Things that didn’t work were rice, spaghetti, straw, and dish soap. Things that worked but the fish would eat were laundry detergent, cat litter, corn starch, flour, birdseed, chicken feed, cake mix, rabbit food, baking soda, hog feed, and bread.

The start of a whole new ballgame!

Since the beginning of school Mrs. Whelan’s intermediate classes have talked about the oil spill and performed experiments on cleaning up the oil spill. At the beginning of school we put our hands in this oil and water mixture to see what it feels like to be what the fish have been through. I feel sorry for the organisms in the water that dies and suffers through the pain. The clean-up material does not have to be buoyant, able to float, but some things we tried are buoyant. I’m using the coffee filters and they are buoyant and the organisms in the water will not eat them. It will also separate the oil and water.

BUSINESS The perfect shopping experience without the long drive

The News Standard - A11

Friday, November 5, 2010

By Jennifer Corbett The News Standard For one morning, the Farm Bureau Building was transformed into the perfect shopping mall with something for just about every woman. This was a part of the Women’s Expo, which was held last Saturday at the Farm Bureau Building. The four-hour event catered to just about everything a typical woman loves whether it be jewelry, purses, makeup, or simple recipes for home. “I think it was the best year yet,” said Donna Reed, coordinator of the Women’s Expo. “We were packed all day long.” Since its inception nine years ago, the Women’s Expo has continually attracted the likes of local businesses and some from Corydon, Elizabethtown and Louisville. Reed said about three-fourths of the vendors were from Meade County. The concept for the expo was sparked while Reed ran Creative Memories, a scrap booking business, out of her home. But, Reed didn’t know how to introduce her budding business to the community. Thus, the Women’s Expo was born. In the beginning, the expo was aimed towards businesses like Reed’s Creative Memories, that are ran out of a person’s home. At first, the Expo showcased 24 vendors. But, as time went on the Expo grew in size and so did the amount of vendors and variety of businesses. This year’s Women’s Expo was no different — as it packed an astounding 55 plus vendors in the Farm Bureau Building. But even though space was small, business was was booming. “I had several vendors tell me they’ve never done so well before,” Reed said. Even though the event catered to women, Reed joked that some men did set up shop in the Expo. For instance, Sam Davis from Elizabethtown, comes every year to sell his handmade baskets, John Matusz sold candles at Halo Candle Company with his wife, DeAnna; and Larry Sciarra sold Natures Gem Glow to Jewel-

ry with his wife, Carolyn. Other businesses and organizations used the expo as an opportunity to spread knowledge for a certain topic. For example, the Meade County Health Department handed out free pamphlets on breast cancer awareness, pink ribbon magnets and pink bracelets. Good Friends Café provided the food and drinks for the evening and according to Reed, even ran out of food before the end of the night. As for the future of the Expo, Reed is aiming to make the next one even better than the last. “It will be the biggest, baddest and best show yet,” she said. “We’ve got to do something big.” Some of the Meade County businesses at the Women’s Expo included: • Halo Candle Company, which is owned and operated by John and DeAnna Matusz, is a place that can brighten up any room with its sweet smells and aromas.

An empty feed bucket means work to do at the Stith farm


Bob and Deloris Stith survey some of the angus cattle on their Payneville farm. By Casey Tolliver The News Standard If you go to Bob and Deloris Stith’s Payneville angus farm and see a feed bucket on the fence post, it doesn’t mean that someone was being lackadaisical. To the contrary, it means someone has been working. “The system at our house was, if you came home and the feed bucket was on the fence post, somebody had fed. If there was no feed bucket on the post, the first guy in fed,” Bob said. “And even to this day, if I leave home and I come home and the feed bucket’s on the post down there, somebody’s come and fed while we were gone. It’s a real simple system.” And, he’s right. The simple, yet very effective system has been helping the Stiths and their children get the job done since their angus operation began in 1976, when a man who Bob helped farm gave their oldest son Ernie a calf when he was four. Their next two sons received a calf from that same man when they turned four. From those gifts grew a family farming operation, that not only produces bulls and heifers, but also quality family time that has now spanned generations. “We’ve been working on this a long time,” Bob said. “And when we first started, we didn’t really have top notch quality.” Now, Stith’s Big D Angus Farm produces heifers and bulls that can fit into most commercial plans while being guaranteed to be quality. “We’re raising bulls that can fit in commercial people’s plans. They have to have good temperaments, they have to grow good. If they can’t get one of our bulls and make any money, then we’re not doing the right thing,” Bob said. “If the bull is not good enough for me to use, then I don’t need to be selling it to you.” This assured standard of quality comes from the fact that the Stiths’ cattle are registered, which allows buyers to send off for paper work that can backup the quality of the cattle and offer insight as to what they should expect from the cow. The paperwork tells vital stats performance data about the bull or heifer being bought, such as birth weight, the quality of the milk which heifers will produce, the quality of the meat and how the bull ranks in comparison to the rest of the herd. Since the beginning, Stith’s Big D Angus Farm has used only artificial insemination to impregnate their heifers and they have tried different methods of artificially inseminating their cattle. They once dabbled in embryo transfers, a process which requires the use of hormones to “super ovu-

late” a heifer, according to Bob. During the process, one heifer has many eggs implanted in her womb. The heifer is then artificially inseminated, with hopes of a higher number of fertilized eggs. “You give her all these hormones and then she has fifteen eggs, hopefully,” Bob said. “And then you breed her and you take all the eggs out of her and you put them in other cows. You do that because you can buy a really high quality cow and then instead of having one calf a year, we had seven in one year from her. And the next year, we had ... four more from her.” The objective of embryo transfer is to buy only one high quality heifer who then is able to produce many high quality calves. Though they had good luck with the process, the Stiths deemed embryo transfer as being cost ineffective. They now synchronize their heifers, a method which involves the Stiths’ giving their heifers shots which make them all cycle on the same day. This results in the heifers having their calves around the same time. Bob pointed out that one perk of synchronization is that his cattle had their calves in 35 days, with a 72 percent conception rate. The hard work ethos that correlates with farming and raising cattle was engrained in the Stith children. Bob, who taught business at Meade County High School for 31 years, worked construction during the summers, on top of his cattle raising duties. The Stith farm started

as a true family operation and remains that way to this day. The Stiths’ five children were all reared caring for and raising cattle. The duration of their angus operation coincides with the bulk of their children’s lives, and even prompted the Stith children to start showing cattle for 4-H and FFA. Their involvement on the family farm continues, and even their children, Bob and Deloris’ grandchildren, are beginning to take roles raising and showing cattle produced on the farm, the same way it became a way of life for their own children. “They showed in national shows, national angus, junior angus shows,” Deloris said. “Our kids thought the only way for vacations was to pull a cow trailer. It’s a family thing. That’s what farming’s all about.”

Greenwave get defensive on senior night By Justin Ray The News Standard

With Meade County’s potent offense looking as if it needed a tune-up for much of the first half, the Greenwave defense created havoc on Butler’s offense doing its part to send the Greenwave seniors out with a victory on senior night. Meade County’s (6-4) offense was a no-show for most of the first-half, consistently having problems sustaining drives against Butler’s (5-5) physical defense. The Bears were able to slow down the highly explosive running game of quarterback Thomas Wilson and Meade County’s two-headed monster in

running back Max Cundiff and Rex Liverman. Wilson did run for 84 yards in the first half, but 41 of the 84 yards came on one play when Wilson scrambled out of the backfield for a big gain. Cundiff and Liverman were held in check with Cundiff rushing for 27 yards and Liverman 9 yards. Meade County head coach Larry Mofield believed his team’s ability to be productive with its running game throughout the season has led opponents to prepare to stop the Greenwave rushing attack. “A lot of people realized we are going to try to run the QB and I think they zeroed in on Thomas good,”

Mofield said. “In the first half I thought our running back might have ran a little high, but I would never question their effort.” With the offense struggling to find its groove in the first half, the defensive line made its presence felt early and often in the first have with some timely sacks. The Greenwave ended the Bears’ first drive of the game with an 11-yard sack of Seth Bowen on a thirdand-eight play from the Bears 31-yard line. Early in the second quarter, Meade County’s defense stepped up big for the Greenwave with two huge tackles for a loss. The Bears See DEFENSIVE, Page B3

Zach Bowen charges to the finish line leading Meade County with a second place finish at Conference.

Greenwave take down competition at Lincoln Heartland Conference Meet By Justin Ray The News Standard Meade County boys’ cross-country team used a late burst of speed to win the Lincoln Trail Heartland Conference meet at Brandenburg Telephone Company, Oct. 28. North Hardin’s Andrew Stewart set the meet record with a time of 16:22. Stewart broke the previous meet record of 16:34, which he had set the previous year. Zach Bowen paced the Greenwave runners with a second place finish. The Greenwave team took first place in the meet with five runners finishing in the top ten: Bowen 2nd, Tyler Blair 4th, Nathan Bates 5th, Tyler Breeds 8th and Dakota Waldecker 9th. Meade County head coach Larry Garner said the Greenwave came into the meet wanting to concentrate on running as a team and boosting the team’s confidence heading into the team’s upcoming tough regional and state meets.

Tyler Blair’s 4th place finish helps the Greenwave win its conference meet on Oct. 28.

If you have attended any local sporting events the past few weeks you might have noticed a new face roaming the sidelines, carrying a notepad and taking photos of the sporting event. Don’t be worried or alarmed, I’m walking the sidelines with a purpose. I’m the newly hired sports editor at the News Standard. I’ve taken on the task of filling the big shoes left behind by previous sports editor Ben Achtabowski and continuing the excellent coverage of Meade Country sports. While I’m new to Meade County, I’m familiar with the county, growing up not to far away in Louisville. In the short time I have been here, I have really enjoyed the warm welcome from the few people I have been fortunate enough to meet. I look forward to meeting many more of you as I embark on my sports journalism career here in Meade County. At The News Standard, I plan to show my passion and excitement for sports in every topic I cover and write about in Meade County. My goal is to show in my stories the hard work, dedication and the desire to succeed every Meade Country athlete puts into playing sports. I consider myself to be a sports fanatic, someone who might have a borderline sports addiction. Most of my time is spent watching sports, reading about sports or debating sports with anyone who is willing to debate with me. Some people might consider it an obsession, and I say they could be right. One afternoon this summer, after spending countless hours on the computer reading sports articles my fiancee asked “Don’t you ever get enough sports?” I

Kaylea Neal leads Meade County with a team best 6th place finish at the Lady Waves Conference Meet.

With the regional crosscountry meet set to take place tomorrow at E.P. Tom Sawyer Park, the Lady Waves seem to be excelling this season at just the right time. The Lady Waves ran the Lincoln Trail Heartland Conference meet on Oct. 28, with a plan of boosting the team’s confidence and sending them into the postseason on the right foot. Elizabethtown’s Hannah Godfrey’s meet best 19:50 lead Elizabethtown to a first place finish. Kaylea Neal’s

20:48 was good enough for 6th place at the meet for the Lady Waves. Meade County placed two other runners in the top ten with Tiffany Brown’s 8th place and Destiny Timmons 9th place finish. As a team, the Lady Waves finished in 5th place. John Hardin placed two runners in the top ten finishing for second place followed by Central Hardin (3rd) and North Hardin (4th). Meade County’s crosscountry head coach Larry Garner said even though his overall team finished fifth at the meet, he saw some good performances from his top

three finishers that led him to believe his team was running its best races to close the season. “Today we only ran three of our top seven girls because four of our girls are in the middle school meet on Saturday,” Garner said. “Our top three girls ran amazing today.” With great performances from his top finishers, Garner was left questioning his decision to not let his middle school runners compete along with the rest of the team.

Seniors and families celebrate By Justin Ray The News Standard

The 2011 senior football team celebrated a 14-7 win against the visiting Butler Bears on senior night Oct. 29. This year’s team overcame a few early season losses led by this season’s 15 senior football players and bounced back to win the regular season District Championship by taking down undefeated Central Hardin. Meade County takes a five game winning streak into the Kentucky state playoffs tomorrow night. The senior class would like your support tomorrow night when they face off against visiting Paul Dunbar in the first round of the playoffs at 8 p.m. at Meade County. The valuable experience the senior class has gained during their time on the gridiron the past four years at Meade County should prove to go a long way in the playoffs.

The News Standard - B3

From page B1 had driven the ball down to the Greenwave 20-yard line after Meade County’s Michael Clinkscales missed a 36-yard field goal attempt. Butler looked as if they would break the 0-0 tie in the second quarter, until Meade County’s Sean Graham tackled Kiante Nortington for a 10yard loss on the Bears second down play. On third down, Meade County’s Dustin Wells and Matt Wise sacked Bears quarterback J.D. Morgan for a 5-yard loss knocking Butler back to the 35-yard line and out of field goal range forcing them to punt. “You have to give a lot of credit to our defensive line,” Mofield said. “I think we were outsized in three spots, maybe every spot. For our kids to step up against kids 260 and maybe a 225 kid is pretty amazing.” Senior defense lineman Will Wilson credits the defenses ability to limit the Bears’ smash-mouth running attack to the effective scheme Meade County’s defensive coaches came up with heading into the game. “We were able to come in and execute the defensive schemes perfectly tonight,” Wilson said. “The coaches came out with a great plan on how to stop (Butler) and we gave an overall good defensive performance.” Though the Greenwave defense was able to keep the Bears’ offense in check with only 114 total first half yards. Meade County’s offense was unable to capitalize with only an interception, a few drivekilling penalties and a missed field goal to show for the defense’s dominating performance heading into halftime in a 0-0 stalemate. The Greenwave came out in the second half with a few adjustments to its running attack and returned looking like the Greenwave team that had just won the district title the previous week at Central Hardin. Meade County took its second drive of the third quarter from its own 15-yard line and drove down the field against the Bears’ defense with 10 straight rushing plays.

Town From page B1 thought to myself, “Are you crazy?” How could I ever get enough sports information? There is always something new to read and keep up with. For me, sports are much more than just two teams competing against one another. Sports hold a special place with me because it’s a place where I have created some of my fondest life-long memories. Most of my youth was spent riding to baseball, basketball and soccer games in my father’s pickup truck, where we spend the truck ride to the game talking about the upcoming game and the ride home discussing what the team did wrong and right during the game. Every Saturday, my family would spend the entire day at the ballpark watching my two younger brothers and I. My father was the coach for all of our teams and my mother and grandparents would spend the day rotating ball fields, cheering us on. Growing up in a family of die-hard University of Kentucky fans, our family has spent numerous hours watching and talking about the Wildcats season. My grandfather and I have spent countless hours in his living room discussing sports and debating topics in the sports world. With all the great ideas (or at least we thought they were great ideas) we have generated in his living room we should have been hired to coach the Wildcats to a few championships by now. Though I am only starting my third year as a sports

Liverman rushed for 88 yards in the second half and two touchdowns for 97 rushing yards on the night. Thomas Wilson led the Greenwave in rushing with 126 yards on 22 attempts. Cundiff added 110 rushing yards on 22 attempts for Meade County. “At halftime the kids were saying ‘not to run motion’ because every time we ran motion (Butler) was slanting into the play,” Mofield said. “The kids really helped us out. They said, ‘Run to the weak side without motion,’ so we did and it worked. The kids know what’s going on. You got to give them a lot of credit for being game savvy and knowing what to do.” Clinkscales’ extra point kick sent Meade County ahead 7-0 halfway through the third quarter. With Meade County’s offense starting to hit its stride running against the Bears’ stout defense, the Greenwave defense continued its dominating performance into second half. Butler put together a 5 minute offensive drive on its first possession after falling behind 7-0, with the running attack of running back Tony Overall. Overall led the Bears with a team-high 107 yards rushing on 17 attempts. The Bears had marched the ball 43 yards on the drive

before Morgan’s first-andten pass fell incomplete and Cundiff’s tackle of Brenton Caldwell on second down for no gain, leading to a critical third-and-ten play for the Meade County defense. On third down, Thomas Wilson broke up Morgan’s pass attempt to Kiante Nortington, the play put the Bears out of field goal range and forced Butler to go for it on fourth down. Meade County’s defense forced Morgan into an incomplete pass with pressure from its defensive line and tight coverage from its secondary. “Our defense played outstanding football against a really good football team,” Mofield said. “This is what football is drawn up to be I think, two teams that smash mouth and get after it and that’s what happened tonight.” With the defensive stop, Meade County’s offense got back to its dominating rushing attack with the offensive line pushing the Bears off the line of scrimmage and creating running holes for its running backs. The Greenwave rushed nine straight plays marching the ball 63 yards for Liverman’s second touchdown on a 5-yard run. “We got into a groove and started to find the holes,” Liverman said. “Once we found them, we just kept hitting them and ran it down their

journalist, I should have known at an early age that sports journalism was the career for me. While most children in elementary school would take the risk of sneaking action figure toys on the school bus, my friends and I would spend our bus rides creating March Madness college basketball brackets. We would pick random teams to fill into the bracket and debate the rest of the ride to school on which teams would win the game, if it actually were played. In high school, I was the guy that snuck a radio player and headphones into class to listen to March Madness games. As my geometry teacher read over test material for the class’ upcoming test for that week, I sat in the back of the class passing along game scores to friends. At that time, knowing the score of the game was more important than learning a math problem. After high school, I went on to graduate from the University of Louisville in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in Justice Administration. A year after graduation, I was unhappy with my career choice and was looking for a change. A friend of mine informed me The CourierJournal in Louisville was in need of part-time help in the sports department. I jumped at the chance to work in the sports department and was hired to write Kentucky and Southern Indiana high school sports summaries. As I walked into the sports department office my first day on the job, I realized this place was just what I was looking for in a career. I figured what could be better than getting paid to write and talk about sports?

At that point, I knew I needed to expand my journalism knowledge and skills. So I enrolled at Indiana University Southeast in New Albany, Indiana and graduated with a journalism degree this past May. While at IUS, I sharpened my writing skills, working for the weekly college newspaper. At the Horizon, I was able to cover their college sports teams and learn my way around as a sports journalist. Leading up to being hired at The News Standard, I spent years writing the high school sports summaries at The Courier-Journal. I also was a freelance writer covering Southern Indiana high school sports for The News & Tribune and Vype magazine covering Kentucky High School sports. I am extremely excited to be offered the opportunity to be the voice of the sports department at The News Standard. I’m looking forward to getting the chance to go out into the community and cover all of the sporting events. With the knowledge of covering high school sports and playing sports myself, I know the passion and hard work athletes put into each and every game. I hope to bring that same passion and hard work to The News Standard as the new sports editor. I hope to provide your family with the newspaper clippings that your family will sit around and talk about, just as my family does. If you have any suggestions or comments as I get settled into the community feel free to give me a call or send me an e-mail. I look forward to meeting all the Greenwave fans.

throats.” Clinkscales’ extra point kick extended the Greenwave lead to 14-0. The 14-point lead would be short lived for Meade County. On the ensuing kickoff, the Greenwave attempted a failed onside kick that was recovered by Butler’s Chaz English at Meade County’s 42-yard line. Butler fooled Meade County’s defense on its first play of the drive on a reverse handoff to Nortington who raced 41 yards down the left side of the field before Bo Wilson was able to tackle him at the 1-yard line. “We made a few mistakes at the end,” Will Wilson said of Meade County’s defensive pursuit on the play. The Greenwave defensive line was able to push the Bears back to the 3-yard line after Morgan attempted to run in for the touchdown on first and second down losing three yards on the attempts. Overall’s 3-yard run on

third down pushed the Bears back to the original line of scrimmage at the 1-yard line. Down 14-0, Butler went for the touchdown on fourthand-one with a quarterback sneak from Morgan, who on his third rushing attempt of the drive made it into the end zone for the score. Aaron Miles connected on the extra point pulling the Bears within 14-7 with 7 minutes remaining. Mofield said coming into the game he knew this game would be a dogfight to the end because Butler is one of the better 6-A teams in Louisville. The Greenwave missed a chance to put the game out of reach late in the fourth quarter but their 15-play drive stalled on the Bears’ 5-yard line. Clinkscales came on to attempt the 22-yard field goal attempt but sent the kick wide leaving the Bears with one last chance to even the score. Butler took over at its own

5-yard line and pushed the ball out to midfield with Morgan completing 3 of 6 passes while spreading out the Greenwave defense. After two incomplete passes and a complete pass to Corey Crank for no gain, Meade County forced the Bears into a fourthand-ten play. Meade County’s defense proved to have one more stop left in the tank. Overall took the fourth down hand off and appeared to have plenty of room to run but Will Wilson made a shoe-string tackle while on the ground to prevent the first down and seal the senior night victory for the Greenwave. “This is building momentum heading into playoffs,” Will Wilson said. “Hopefully we will make a big run, while taking our five game winning streak into the playoffs.” The defense’s ability to keep the game knotted at 0-0, while the Greenwave offense tried to find its groove in the first half did not go unnoticed by the rest of the team. “The defense played outstanding,” Liverman said. “They held them in the first half and didn’t give up any big runs.” Meade County’s defense limited Butler to only 238 total yards for the game while the Greenwave’s second half offensive performance gave them 398 total yards for the game. The Greenwave defense was able to limit the number of Bears offensive plays by forcing Butler into converting only 1 of 11 third down attempts. Meade County finished the game converting 6 of 13 third down plays. Meade County opens the first round of the Kentucky state football playoffs tonight at 8 p.m. against Paul Dunbar (1-9) at Meade County High School. Butler 0 0 0 7—7 Meade County 0 0 7 7 —14

Champs From page B1 “I thought we ran well. We came in with a plan of putting five guys in the top ten,” Garner said. “Coming in, we knew we were the best team out there.” With the Greenwave running the race together for the first mile, it allowed runners from North Hardin to race ahead to the front of the pack in the early stages of the race. “North Hardin took out hard (at the beginning of the race) and I was a little nervous. The guys were patient, probably more patient than I would’ve been,” Garner said. “The guys were able to slowly get into their spots. Zach finishing second was a great performance.” Once passing the first mile marker, Bowen pushed through the cold windy breeze and settled in towards the front of the pack behind Stewart. By that time, Stewart had taken a commanding lead of the race and was never challenged after the start. With Stewart out of reach, Bowen competed against North Hardin’s Kevin Walker and John Hardin’s John Egan for second. “The first half of the race was for the team,” Bowen said. “I was feeling good and our coaches were telling me to go at the mile marker if I felt like it. I decided to go for it. I was hanging in there (at the end).” Bowen surged ahead in the last mile of the race for his second-place finish. Though he was happy with his performance, Bowen said the meet was more about the team and helping them prepare for the postseason meets. “It was a team run…today was for our team, getting us

Jarret Gonsalves and Noah Buchman battle at the end of the course to stay ahead of a Central Hardin runner. pumped for the regional and state meet,” Bowen said. North Hardin finished the meet in second place behind Stewart’s top performance and top ten finishes by Walker and Marcus Terrell. John Hardin finished the meet in third place followed by Central Hardin, Elizabethtown and Fort Knox. Competing against local high schools and knowing its competitors, Garner said, was one of the reasons the Greenwave was able to come up with the late push at the end to put them ahead of the other teams. “Everyone here knows us and we know them,” Garner said. “There are guys here they want to beat, so it was a big deal to catch these guys. Even though they might have been in fifth or sixth place, there are guys in front of you that you really want to beat.” Blair agreed the Greenwave was able to push a little harder at the end of the race because they wanted to show the local competition how good of a team they were. “We normally compete against North and John Har-

din and Egan is one of our main contenders right now,” Blair said. “We are taking him down for the state.” The Greenwave compete in arguably one of the toughest cross-country regions in the state and the conference meet helps to provide confidence for the team heading into the postseason. “Our region is terrifying,” Garner said. “We got five of the top ten teams in the state in our region. We could finish the season top five in the state and not make it out of region. This meet will help boost our confidence. At this point, it’s confidence more than anything that will help the team.” Meade County also placed nine other runners in the top 50 at the meet: Will Strickland 16th, Jarrett Gonsalves 20th, Noah Buchman 21rst, Jordan King 24th, Michael Miller 26th, Levi Hamilton 33rd, Thomas Machine 34th, Jordan Mattingly 35th and Mason Milliner 47th. The Greenwave will compete in the regional meet Saturday at E.P. Tom Sawyer Park in Louisville.

The runners at the recent Lincoln Trail Heartland Conference meet run the course at E.P. Tom Sawyer Park.

Waves From page B1 “I watched the race and was frustrated. I was thinking ‘Man, I should have ran the middle school girls too. We could have won this thing,” Garner said. On a day when temperatures dropped and a cold wind blew through the course, Garner said the runs by Brown and Timmons left him pleased with the way his team competed against the other local schools. “Destiny and Tiffany really stepped up today and ran excellent,” Garner said. “They had not run this well all year.” Throughout the race Brown and Timmons ran side by side towards the front of the race with Brown pulling ahead of Timmons by less than two seconds. “It was great running with Tiffany,” Timmons said. “It really helped me throughout the race. At the end, she kind of took me but it was a great finish.” A top performance by Neal and good times by Brown and Timmons could

be the key to a successful regional meet tomorrow. “If we get that kind of performance along with the way our middle school girls are running, we’re going to be in good shape in regions,” Garner said. “We’ve finished top ten in regions the last two years and with what they did today we could go after the top teams now.” With the season nearing an end, the Lady Waves’ performance at the conference meet show the girls plan on putting up a fight to extend their season. “I told them to make sure when they stepped off the course, whether you ran the fastest time or not, you know you couldn’t have run an ounce faster,” Garner said. “That’s always the goal and we saw that kind of effort today. In previous races, they had not always given the needed effort. Today, we saw their best.” Giving the extra ounce of effort was clearly displayed by the Lady Waves at the end of the race. After crossing the finish line Brown, Neal and Timmons had to help each other stand up to catch their breath because

all three runners were exhausted. “I saw the finish line and I knew I had to just go for it, so that’s what I did,” Neal said. With the pressure of their season coming to an end at regionals, Garner believes his team is peaking at just the right time for a successful postseason. “We are starting to turn it on at the right time,” Garner said. “I’m expecting good things (tomorrow). It’s all about confidence. With girls, I’ve noticed mentally its harder, confidence it’s harder, and we have to get them going, I believe.” If the Lady Waves need any extra motivation at the regional meet, Garner said the teams past two performances should be enough to get ready. “The fact we’re two-time regional runner-up, we should step on the course saying ‘That’s our trophy and we’re going to go get it,’’ Garner said. “This meet was exactly what we needed.” Also, running for Meade County was: Daisy Porter 33rd, Brooke Perry 43rd, and Chelsea Pipes 51st.

Paws Corner By Sam Mazzotta Fleas Aren’t Always Obvious

DEAR PAW’S CORNER: My 6-month-old Lab mix, “Charlie,” scratches and bites at his fur a lot. This started a couple of weeks ago, and he scratches most of the day. Does he have fleas? I can’t see any. — Darlene H., Baton Rouge

DEAR DARLENE: It’s entirely possible for your pet to have fleas without you being able to see them or experiencing their itchy bites yourself. If there is one telltale indicator of infestation, however, it’s “flea dirt”: tiny black flecks in his fur or on his skin that look kind of like black pepper. But he may not even have that, at first. Charlie also could be having an allergic reaction to something. He could even have a flea or two and be having an allergic reaction to their bites. You can check for this by looking at the skin of his hind legs and at the base of his tail. Are there small red bumps raised there? If you find evidence of fleas but no other problems (like allergic reaction, infected scratch marks, etc.), treat Charlie for fleas and monitor him more closely than usual for a few weeks to make sure scratching does not resume. In addition, treat your home and entryways to prevent fleas and increase the number of times per week you vacuum (and be sure to change the vacuum bag frequently too). If you can’t find fleas or their evidence, or he keeps scratching after treatment, take Charlie to the veterinarian to look for other problems like allergies, skin disease or a hidden illness. Send your pet questions and tips to, or write to Paw’s Corner, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Find more pet advice and resources at Want to adopt a pet?

Celebrity Extra By Cindy Elavsky

Q: I think I’ve missed a couple of episodes of “Lone Star” on Fox. Is it coming back on? — Mike M., Newark, Ohio Q: I fell in love with the ABC summer series “The Gates.” Do you have any idea if it will be brought back, maybe as a midseason replacement? I really need to know what happens! — Karen D. in Virginia A: “Lone Star” was the first casualty of the fall 2010 season. Despite rave reFrank Grillo views and being the critics’ darling, low ratings forced Fox to pull the series after only two episodes. And the same fate seems to have befallen the summer series “The Gates” (which was one of my favorite shows of the year) and “Scoundrels.” On Oct. 15, “The Gates” star Frank Grillo tweeted: “Don’t shoot the messenger ... “The Gates” is officially canceled. I knew my source was right. Thanks to all of you for supporting us.” As of this writing, ABC’s “My Generation” and NBC’s “Outlaw” (starring Jimmy Smits) also are kaput. One the cusp of cancellation — however, they still could be saved ­— are “Undercovers” and “Running Wilde.” Q: Last season on “The Mentalist,” there was an actor on one of the episodes playing the role of a billionaire who really resembles Kevin Spacey. Who is he, and what else can I see him in? — Jay F., via e-mail A: You’re thinking of 43-year-old Canadian actor Currie Graham. Most recently he co-starred with Jaime Pressly in “Smoke Screen,” a made-for-TV movie based on the Sandra Brown novel. The movie premieres Sunday night, Nov. 21, on the Lifetime Movie Network. Q: Sean Murray of “NCIS” sure has lost a lot of weight. Is he ill or on some sort of a diet? — Mrs. G., Venice, Fla. A: Sean, who turns 33 on Nov. 15, explained via his Twitter account that his weight loss came from “14 months of no alcohol and almost no sugar. Ate strictly organic. ... You can actually see me gradually lose the weight over the 24 (episodes) of Season 7; a pound every week or two.” Q: I enjoy watching classic black-and-white movies on television. What does “RKO” stand for in the RKO Pictures logo? — Tashi G., Dearborn, Mich. A: RKO stands for “Radio-Keith-Orpheum.” RKO was formed after the Keith-Albee-Orpheum (KAO) theater chains brought together under the control of the Radio Corporation of America (RCA) back in 1928. READERS: A few weeks back, a reader asked when TNT’s “Men of a Certain Age” would be back for its second season, and I answered that it would be Nov. 29. The network has since pushed that date back to Monday, Dec. 6, so re-mark your calendars! Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

• It was British playwright Tom Stoppard who made the following observation: “Skill without imagination is craftsmanship and gives us many useful objects such as wickerwork picnic baskets. Imagination without skill gives us modern art.” • William Henry Harrison, the country’s sixth commander-in-chief, had the shortest tenure of any United States president. He died of pneumonia just 32 days after taking office. • In 1666, the Great Fire of London destroyed 13,200 homes, 87 parish churches and St. Paul’s Cathedral, and it left some 70,000 people homeless. It also provided the impetus for the beginning of the insurance industry. After the conflagration, Nicholas Barbon, a wellto-do doctor, realized how much of his wealth was flammable. A year after the Great Fire, he began the world’s first insurance company. • The men and women who venture into space have to adapt themselves to changing environments both when they enter space and when they return home. Many astronauts and cosmonauts say that one of the most difficult things to adjust to when returning to earth from space is the fact that when you let go of something, it falls to the ground. • Thought for the Day: “Eighty percent of married men cheat in America. The rest cheat in Europe.” — Jackie Mason (c) 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your ruling planet, Mars, allows you to assume a sense of command that can help you turn a chaotic workplace situation into one that’s orderly, productive and, yes, even friendly. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Getting a relationship that’s been stuck in a rut up and running again depends on how far you want to run with it. Be honest with yourself as you consider which decision to make. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be wary of rumors that seem to be coming from everywhere this week. Waiting for the facts before you act means never having to say you’re sorry you followed the wrong lead. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A difficult personal matter might prompt you to turn to a trusted friend to help you sort through a maze of emotional conflicts. The weekend should bring some welcome news. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Some of the new people coming into the Lion’s life could play pivotal roles in future personal and professional matters. Meanwhile, an old friend might have an important message. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A delay in getting things moving on schedule can be a blessing in disguise. Use this extra time to do more research so you can buttress any of the weaker points with solid facts. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You might need to get involved in a personal matter before it becomes a serious problem. Also be wary of someone offering to mediate unless you can be sure of his or her motives. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Taking sides in a workplace or domestic dispute could prolong the problem. Stay out and stay cool. Then you can be friends with both parties when things settle down. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A friendship has the potential to become something more, and with this week’s aspects favoring romance, you might feel that this possibility is worth exploring. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) The new job you want might require you to relocate. If so, keep an open mind and weigh all the positives and negatives before making your decision. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A new relationship seems to be everything you could have hoped for. Congratulations. Meanwhile, it’s not too early to get some feedback on that new project you’re working on. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might have decided to get out of the fast-moving current and just float around hither and yon for a while. But you might find that the new opportunity is too tempting to turn down. BORN THIS WEEK: You believe in bringing out the best in people with kind deeds, loving words and recognition of their “special” selves. (c) 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.

Kindergarten students take advantage of the new books purchased with funds from Adopt A Classroom. LEFT TO RIGHT: Alex Waters, Katie-Ann Durbin and Malleigh Riddell.

PICTURED FROM LEFT TO RIGHT: Darlene Tamas, Mary Mattingly, Sharon Kanappel, Ray Williams, Linda Stinebruner, Norma Sollinger and Ruthanne Dunn. The Senior Citizens Center held its annual Halloween party Tuesday, Oct. 26. Members showcased their holiday spirit by donning various Halloween costumes. Friends laughed and had a

good time as people dressed up as firemen, angels, devils, witches and even the Cat in the Hat. Everyone mingled and caught up with friends, while dancing to some cool grooves. Snacks and drinks

were also served at the dance. Attendees voted on their favorite costume out of seven participants. The money raised from the event will benefit the center’s nutrition program.

Ekron Elementary School is the proud recipient of Adopt- A-Classroom. Adopt-A-Classroom invites the community into the classroom in support of teachers and their students. By adopting a classroom, donors form partnerships with specific classrooms providing financial and moral support. The result is a meaningful contribution to education in which donors experience the impact of their efforts and celebrate in a classroom’s success. Sindi Kunkle, along with H & R Block, donated $300, which was used to purchase several sets of guided reading series books to correlate with Ekron’s Reading Recovery Program.
