director of the Golden Pond  Planetarium at Land Between  the Lakes Monday    Workman previously  worked at the planetarium from  February 1996 to December  1998 but left when the facil  ity changed

be the best  stewards of the public funds as  we can be  Workman said  I  think Janet  Dunbar  has done  an outstanding job maintaining  the budget  working within our  means    He would also have

bleeding arent the only signs  of gynecologic cancer  As part  of Cervical Health Awareness  Month in January  experts at  The University of Texas MD  Anderson Cancer Center share  other symptoms that often are  overlooked    More than 80 000 women in  the United States are diagnosed  each year with a gynecologic  cancer  such as cervical  endo  metrial  also known as uterine   or ovarian cancer    Unfortunately  because  symptoms for these cancers are  often vague  many women mis  take them for other less serious  conditions  said Dr  Therese  Bevers  medical director of MD  Andersons Cancer Prevention  Center  So  its important to  know exactly what to look for  because gynecologic cancers  are usually most treatable when  found early    Here are 10 symptoms of  cervical and other gynecolog  ic cancers that every woman  should watch for    Alert your doctor if these  symptoms appear  especially if  youve already gone through  menopause  Bevers said    1  Swollen leg  Does one  leg look or feel swollen for  no reason  This may be a sign  of cervical cancer  Typically   though  a swollen leg isnt a  sign of cancer unless theres  also pain  discharge or other  cervical cancer symptoms    2  Abnormal vaginal bleed  ing  More than 90 percent of  women diagnosed with endo  metrial cancer experience  irregular bleeding  Women  whove already undergone  menopause should have any  bleeding  including spot  ting  evaluated  Women who  havent gone through meno  pause should see a doctor  about bleeding between peri  ods  heavy bleeding or bleed  ing during sex    3  Unexplained weight  loss  Women who suddenly  lose more than 10 pounds  without changing diet or    exercise habits should see  their doctor    4  Vaginal discharge colored  with blood  Bloody  dark or  smelly discharge usually sig  nals infection  But sometimes   its a sign of cervical or endo  metrial cancer    5  Constantly needing bath  room breaks  Constantly need  to use the bathroom or feel  continuous bladder pressure   This may be a sign of cancer   Take note especially if you  also feel full  have abdominal  pain and experience bloating   Bevers said    6  Loss of appetite or con  stant feeling full  Never hun  gry anymore  Or constantly  full  These appetite changes  may be symptoms of ovarian  cancer    7  Pain in the pelvis or  abdominal area  Ongoing  abdominal pain or discomfort    including gas  indigestion   pressure  bloating and cramps    can signal ovarian cancer   And  constant pelvic pain or  pressure can be a sign of endo  metrial cancer    8  Belly bloat  Women often  feel bloated after eating or  drinking a lot  especially dur  ing their menstrual cycles   But a woman may have ovar  ian cancer if she continues  feeling bloated for more than  two weeks or after her period  ends    9  Constant fatigue  A lit  tle rest should typically cure  fatigue  But women should see  a doctor if fatigue constantly  interferes with work or leisure  activities    10  Persistent indigestion or  nausea  Feeling queasy for an  extended period of time  Occa  sionally  persistent indigestion  or nausea can signal gyneco  logic cancers  so play it safe  and see a doctor    Remember  having one  or more of these symptoms  doesnt mean you have cancer   Bevers said  But if they last  two weeks or longer  see your  doctor  After all  its better to be  safe than

Moderate  Challenging     HOO BOY       2011 King Features Synd   Inc  All rights reserved     2012 King Features Synd   Inc     To Your Good Health    By Paul G  Donohue  M D    Stroke  Quick Action Saves  Brain Cells   DEAR DR  DONOHUE  Six  years ago  my father died of a  stroke  My mother tried to rouse  him from bed  but he responded  with confusion and was unable  to speak  She called for an ambu  lance  He was in the hospital  only four hours before he died   The doctor said he would have  lived if he had gotten treatment  sooner  My mother has felt guilty  about this ever since    She lives with us now  I  dont want to miss a stroke if  she has one  How do you rec  ognize one  and what should  be done right away in an emer  gency   T B    ANSWER  Nearly 900 000  strokes occur yearly in the  United States  and of those  victims  200 000 die  Many of  the survivors are left with great  disabilities  Strokes come in  two types  One is an ischemic   is KEY mick  stroke  and the  other is a hemorrhagic stroke   Ischemic means deprived of  blood  Its the more common  kind of stroke  accounting for  80 percent of all strokes  The  flow of blood to part of the  brain is blocked by a clot in an  artery  Its the brains equivalent  of a heart attack  The other 20  percent comes from bleeding in  the brain  a hemorrhagic stroke     Signs of either kind of stroke  include slurred speech  sudden  confusion  numbness of the  face  arm or leg  trouble seeing   dizziness and severe headache   Many advocate testing the per  son to decide if a stroke has  occurred  Asking the affected  person to stick out his or her  tongue and seeing if it deviates  to the side is one of those tests   Dont waste time doing tests   Immediately call 911    Im limiting what I say  about treatment to strokes  resulting from the obstruction  of blood flow  Brain cells begin  to die within minutes  Howev  er  theres a three hour window  during which clot dissolving  medicines can be given  They  almost always lead to a full  recovery of function  Now  the window has been opened  wider  to 4 1 2 hours  That  doesnt detract from the impor  tant message that the earlier the  treatment  the better the result    The booklet on strokes tells  their signs and their treatments   Readers can obtain a copy by  writing  Dr  Donohue  No   902W  Box 536475  Orlando   FL 32853 6475

nearsighted  and has to wear thick glasses   Im not  I dont wear glasses at  age 50  We have four children   What are their chances of hav  ing to wear glasses   E P    ANSWER  Nearsightedness   myopia  indicates that the eyes  can see things that are near   Nearsighted eyes dont see dis  tant objects clearly  Its a com  mon eye condition  and genetic  involvement in it is high    If one parent is nearsighted   the children have a 24 per  cent chance of also being near  sighted  If both parents are  nearsighted  the childrens risk  increases to 48 percent    If neither parent is affected   the children have an 8 per  cent chance of developing  nearsightedness  Factors other  than genes have to be at work    Dont believe these percent  ages with unquestioning accep  tance  I dont     Dr  Donohue regrets that he  is unable to answer individual  letters  but he will incorporate  them in his column whenever  possible  Readers may write  him or request an order form  of

the Cookie  Monster down there    Again  the little girl was si  lent    Then the doctor put a stetho  scope to her chest  As he lis  tened to her heart beat  he  asked  Do you think Ill hear  Barney

dangle about    He went back to the res  taurant  where the waiter said   Well  OK  you can come in      just dont start anything    One day while driv  ing along with her 4 year old  daughter  the mother beeped  the horn by mistake    The young child gasped and  looked at her mom for an expla  nation    The mother said  I did that  by accident    The child replied  I know  that because you didnt say  jerk afterwards    A minister was preoccu  pied with thoughts of how he  was going to ask the congrega  tion to come up with more mon  ey than they were expecting for  repairs to the church building    Therefore  he was annoyed  to find that the regular organ  ist was sick and a substitute  had been brought in at the last  minute  The substitute wanted  to know what to play  Heres  a copy of the service  he said  impatiently  But youll have to  think of something to play after  I make the announcement about  the finances    During the service  the min  ister paused and said  Broth

moment  the substi  tute organist played  The Star  Spangled Banner    A young man applied for  a job in a big company    Im sorry  said the per  sonnel manager  but the firm  is overstaffed  We have

increasing as the econ  omy slowly recovers from the  Great Recession    The bad news is that the  numbers are so wretched that  we will likely be forced to carve  into some of our most critical   basic services in order to cut  spending and balance the 2012   14 biennial budget    The explanation basically  is that federal stimulus money   widely misunderstood as a  result of waves of furious and  deeply dishonest Republican  attacks  kept state budgets  afloat for several years  Now   that money is drying up  and  revenues are inadequate to re  place it    In that context  the Gover  nors categorical rejection of  creating new sources of rev  enue is disappointing  An econ  omy mired in a deep recession  generally would be seriously  hindered by tax increases  an  economy that is rebounding   however tepidly  can withstand  some carefully targeted new  or increased taxes  Clearly  the  money is needed for essential  public purposes    However  it is easy to see  Gov  Beshears political cal  culation  A tax proposal would  be dead on arrival in the GOP   dominated Senate  and its un  fair to ask House Democrats to  jeopardize their re election by  voting for a tax increase that  wont even pass  And a battle  over a short term tax hike  would complicate and perhaps  doom the Governors longer   term priorities  comprehensive  tax reform and expanded gam  bling    That makes it all the more    critical that those long range  aims be fulfilled    As weve said in the past   tax reform must be more than  a revenue neutral gesture to  modernize the tax code and  correct some unfair provi  sions  It must bring in signifi  cantly more money  in amounts  that increase as the economy  picks up  To help achieve that   it is essential that the Gover  nor spare no effort to enlist  broad and vocal support from  university presidents  public  school superintendents  local  officials and business leaders  to make the case that Ken  tucky cannot meet its peoples  needs and position itself for  21st Century success on a  shoestring state budget that  perpetuates mediocrity in so  many vital areas    Meanwhile  it is frustrating  that nearly five years after he  began campaigning for gover  nor on a platform of expanding  gambling  Mr  Beshear is still  talking about a starting point  for discussion  But it is what it  is  Let no one be under any illu  sions  however  that all that has  to be done is to draft a consti  tutional amendment that allows  casinos and or slot machines    There have to be rigorous  provisions to ensure that the  state receives most of the mon  ey  and that any funds directed  to helping the horse industry go  primarily to bolster breeding   sales and purses  and not to fat  ten the wallets of shareholders  of publicly traded tracks  At  the same time  thoughtful care  must be taken to make sure that  expanded gambling doesnt  hurt  or even kill  racing    Kentuckians need to hear  more about both initiatives   soon

Outlines Agenda In 5th Commonwealth Address    In his fifth State of the Com  monwealth address  Gov  Steve  Beshear laid out a robust and  expansive legislative agenda  and challenged lawmakers to  avoid partisanship and work  together in order to improve  Kentuckians lives    Kentucky continues to suf  fer from the lingering effects of  the global recession  but short  term survival cannot be our  only goal  said Beshear  This  is no time to rest  to be com  placent  to hide or to be timid   Rather  it is time to be decisive  and aggressive    The governor warned that  the upcoming budget would be  the most difficult of his admin  istration  and that his upcoming  budget proposal would include  significant cuts  even in previ  ously protected areas    He warned  however  that a  difficult budget should not be  used as an excuse to remain  complacent  and that it is pos  sible to make changes for the  short term and long term ben  efit of Kentuckians    Tonight I will lay out for  you some bold steps we can  take to continue   in a col  lective and strategic way   to  address the fundamental weak  nesses that have hampered    our state for generations  he  explained    Although the governor  announced that his budget pro  posal would not include rev  enue from gaming  he urged  lawmakers to pass a constitu  tional amendment that would  allow Kentuckians to vote on  expanded gaming in Novem  ber    Beshear said that hundreds  of millions of dollars are spent  in neighboring states casinos   funding their schools and roads  and hiring police officers and  teachers  That money belongs  in Kentucky  Beshear said  and  should be funding the services  Kentuckians need  In addition   he noted that two recent polls  show that more than 80 percent  of Kentuckians want the oppor  tunity to vote on this issue    Also  a more balanced tax  code will not only create a  more welcoming business envi  ronment  Beshear said  but will  also allow the state to invest in  the services and priorities that  best position our citizens for  success    In the coming days  the gov  ernor plans to unveil a process  to review Kentuckys tax sys  tem    Tax reform must realign the    system in a way that is not only  fairer for families and busi  nesses  but also improves the  states ability to compete in the  21st century economy    While neither of these pro  posals will have immediate  financial impact  together they  lay the foundation for increased  revenue that will support key  services like education and job  creation efforts in the years to  come    Beshear also offered a wide   ranging legislative agenda   designed to improve the states  economy  fight prescription  drug abuse and better prepare  Kentuckys workforce    These initiatives consid  er not only the present day  needs of Kentuckians  but also  improvements that could bene  fit citizens in the future  Those  initiatives are    Expanded Gaming   Amendment  The governor  will soon introduce a bill in the  Senate to allow Kentuckians to  vote on the issue of expanded  gaming   a move which could  return millions of dollars to  the state to protect and support  key priorities such as public  protection  education and job  creation    Balanced and Strate     Kentucky Housing Agency Offers  Lowest Rates Offered In 40 Years    The Kentucky Housing Cor  poration  KHC   the state hous  ing

Investment   Beshear will push for tax  credits for so called angel  investors   private investors  who provide funding for mid  level entrepreneurs  These  entrepreneurs are often too  small to attract big venture  capital and too large for other  forms of start up assistance   This bill would mean that  Kentuckians who invest in  Kentucky start ups to create  Kentucky jobs would receive  a credit on their Kentucky  income taxes    Protecting Children   In light of recent discussions  regarding the protection of Ken  tuckys children  Beshear will  propose the Child Protection  Act of 2012  which includes  legislation to formalize what    records should be released  after the death of a child  The  package also includes a bill to  create an independent review  panel  appointed by

This compares with the national  average that has increased 7 9  cents per gallon in the past week  to  3 34 per gallon according to  gasoline price Web site Ken  tucky GasPrices com    Gas prices in Dawson  Springs as of Tuesday were   3 49 per gallon  an increase  of 30 cents in the past two  weeks    Including the change in gas  prices in Kentucky during the  past week  prices Sunday were  33 cents per gallon higher than  on the same day one year ago  and are 19 4 cents per gallon  higher than a month ago  The  national average has increased  4 7 cents per gallon during the  past month and stands 27 cents  per gallon higher than this day  one year ago    Gas prices are rising across  much of the nation as Iran has    continued to threaten closing  the Strait of Hormuz  a vital  waterway for global oil ship  ments  said GasBuddy com  Senior Petroleum Analyst Pat  rick DeHaan  Think back to  the days following the start of  the crisis in Libya  an event  that also rattled energy mar  kets  were seeing similar  emotions play out even though  there hasnt yet been a disrup  tion to supply  I would blame  emotion for the recent uptick in  gasoline prices  nothing else    That gas prices nation  ally were higher at the end  of 2011 than one year ago is  cause for concern according  to Gregg Laskoski  another  Senior Petroleum Analyst for  GasBuddy com   because for  the past seven years the change  from the beginning of the year  to the peak has been 93 cents to   1 31 per gallon    Last year was actually a  good snapshot of what weve  seen for the past seven years     2010 ended with the national  average at  3 05  and we saw  the annual spring 2011 climb  push the national average 91  cents higher to its peak level  as early as May 11 when it  reached  3 96 per gallon   Laskoski said    In three of the last seven  years  the spread between the  yearly starting price and the  peak exceeded  1 per gallon   and only once in the past seven  years was the spread below  82 cents per gallon  DeHann  said  And while we typically  anticipate peak prices to occur  in the midst of the summer  driving season  sometimes the  peak can even come after sum  mer has concluded  as was the  case nationally during 2006 and  2009  While past performance  is no indication of future prices   if the national average doesnt  move closer toward or under   3 per gallon by

game and pulled  down 10 rebounds for a double double  Photo by Mike Howton    It paid off to do what their coach  said Monday night in Panther gym as  the Panther girls beat defending 2nd  Region champion Crittenden County  55 42 to claim their fourth win of the  year    Coach Erik Peyton asked his team  to play good defense and he believes  the defensive effort is what provided  the win against last years state tour  nament team    We were playing neck and neck  with them  Peyton said  We were  struggling a bit  then Presly Todd gave  us a big boost    Todd scored nine points in the sec  ond quarter when the Panthers turned  an 11 6 first quarter deficit into a 26   21 halftime lead    With the Panthers behind 12 8  early in the second quarter  Tayler  Mills rebounded a missed free throw  and put it back to bring the Panthers  within two  and Todd put back a re  bounded miss on the next possession  to tie the game at 12    After Crittenden County made a  free throw to regain the lead  Todd  made a 15 footer off an assist from  Amber Genseal to give the Panthers  the lead for good    The pair followed up that play with  another assist by Genseal and basket  by Todd at the 4 30 mark to make the  score 16 13    Later in the quarter with the score  21 17  Todd made a 3 pointer from the  wing off an assist by Lauren Menser  to put the Panthers up 24 17 with 1 47  to go in the half    After halftime the defense took  over  limiting the Rockets to six points  in the third quarter as the Panthers  stretched their lead to 10 at 37 27 en  tering the fourth quarter    With 5 53 left in the game and the  Panthers leading 40 30  a 10 0 run by  the home team put the game out of  reach for good    Mills scored under the  basket McKnight beat her defender  for a layup  Elizabeth Black scored  under the basket then made two free    throws  and McKnight beat her de  fender again for another layup for 10  straight Panther points    The defensive effort is what did  it  Peyton said    But the Panthers offensive num  bers were also good    McKnight led all scorers with 19  points  Mills had 11 points to go with  10 rebounds for a double double  and    Todd finished with 10 points    Rihana took the ball to the hole   Peyton said  Thats what I told her to  do    Black scored five points for the  Panthers  Menser and Shelby Loney  each scored four  and Hannah Winters  added two points    Continued on page B3    Panthers Come Up  Short Against Central    The Panther boys traveled to  Hopkins County Central Jan  3 and  lost 53 46 to their 5th District rivals    The game was close throughout  even though the Storm got 31 chances  at the free throw stripe compared to  the Panthers 11  Neither team cashed  in on their attempts as Central made  12 for 39 percent and the Panthers  made five for 45 percent    The score was tied 9 9 following  the first quarter and the Storm edged  ahead 20 19 at halftime  The third  quarter was decisive in the close game  with the Panthers falling behind 33 28  entering the final quarter    It was one of our better defensive  efforts  Panther coach Jeff Miller  said  We played them pretty tight all  the way through  just came up short    Tre Lambrough led the Panthers  in scoring with 14 points  Also scor  ing in double figures for the Panthers  was Colton Chappie with 10 points   including two second half 3 pointers    The Storms senior guard Nick  Hopper led all scorers with 17 points    Central improved to 4 7 with the  win  The Panthers record slipped to  2   12     We came out hitting our outside  shots and we handled their press   Miller said  Their press didnt affect  us  but we had a lot of bad passes for    turnovers where we just didnt connect  on our passes  The turnovers were our  fault more than the pressures fault    Ryan McKnight added nine points  for the Panthers  Austin Stevens  scored seven  Trey Miller scored four   and Todd Bullock added two points     PANTHERS

Winds Mean Float And    Fly Time For Fishermen    By   Lee McClellan   The late Charlie Nuckols  owned a tackle shop and lure  company in east Tennessee   near South Holston Lake  Win  ter crappie anglers who fished  small marabou jigs deep under  bobbers complained to him  about big smallmouth break  ing off their rigs all of the  time    This got Nuckols think  ing  He  along with his brother  Eddie  began experimenting  with suspending small jigs   eventually settling on those  tied with craft hair or duck  feathers  They fished these jigs  8 to 12 feet deep  suspended  under bobbers cast on long   soft spinning rods along bluffs  and deep points on South Hol  ston Lake  They began to regu  larly catch smallmouth bass  over four pounds on this new  system  Word began to spread  to other smallmouth lakes in  the region  notably Dale Hol  low Lake    I read and heard about  the technique and tried it a    few times without success   using makeshift equipment  ill suited to the task and fish  ing it with little passion  I  wanted to get back to swim  ming a small bucktail jig  just above bottom or casting  live shiners  my preferred  winter baits  After some  friends started having good  success with the float and  fly  I relented and bought the  correct equipment and deter  mined I would fish it until I  caught a smallmouth    It didnt take long  Within  my first dozen casts of fish  ing the float and fly correct  ly  I caught a 19 inch small  mouth that weighed right at  four pounds  Ive been hooked  since  Now that arctic winds  chilled the air and water in  Kentucky over the last week   it is time to try this effec  tive technique  The colder the  water  the better the float and  fly works    The float and fly imitates  what happens to baitfish such  as shad in reservoirs in mid  winter    Once the water tempera    tures drop below 50 degrees   shad dont feel too good   said Gerry Buynak  assis  tant director of fisheries for  the Kentucky Department of  Fish and Wildlife Resourc  es  The cold water makes  shad distressed and they flip  around  twitch and swim in  circles  The little jig imitates  exactly what is happening to  them    Smallmouth bass suspend  under schools of baitfish and  pick off the ones twitching  as they fight to survive win  ters cold  Nature programmed  smallmouth bass through the  millennia to take advantage of  easy feeding opportunities in  winter  Female bass  especially   need winter nutrition to fuel  egg development for spring  spawning    The next two months  are the best time of year to  employ the technique in the  lower ends of Lake Cumber  land  Dale Hollow Lake  Lau  rel River Lake  Green River  Lake  Barren River Lake and  the small mountain impound  ments such as Cranks Creek     Herb Smith  Lake or Cannon  Creek Lake    When I got serious  I bought  an 8 foot rod from a top of the  line manufacturer  attached a  decent reel and bought a mix  ture of 1 16 ounce jigs made  from duck feathers  craft  hair or a mixture of both  I  spooled on 4 pound test line  and got busy  It isnt neces  sary to spend a ton on the rod  as manufacturers now offer  affordable spinning rods from  8 to 11 feet long    A 1 16 ounce craft hair fly  in combinations of light blue   chartreuse  white  blue or sil  ver work well  I drop down  to 1 3 2 ounce flies on bright   shimmering days after a cold  front    Duck feather flies with  stands of red or chartreuse craft  tied into them produce best  when the water temperatures  fall below 47 degrees  Some  anglers apply a petroleum jelly  based scent called dope to  their flies    I trim my craft hair flies to  match the bend of the hook and  apply liberal amounts of dope     This gives the fly a slim profile  and no action  which turns on  lethargic smallmouths  If the  water is a little stained  I apply  dope only to the head of the fly  to let the craft hair breathe and  undulate so the smallmouths  can find it easier  I only apply  dope to the head of duck feath  er flies    Set the bobber about 9 feet  above the fly to start and adjust  shallower or deeper as needed   Some anglers use a main line of  8 pound braided line running to  a small brass three way swivel  with a leader of 4 pound fluo  rocarbon attached to one of the  loops and clipping a small 7 8   inch pear shaped plastic bob  ber to the other  Others simply  tie a fly to a 4 pound main line  of clear or green fluorocar  bon or monofilament line and  attach the bobber to the line as  they are more comfortable with  one knot than three  Both catch  trophy smallmouths    Cast the fly to main lake  and secondary points or rock  bluffs  Allow the bobber to ride  up and down with the waves   letting nature impart action on    the fly  After a time  reel in  about five feet and repeat  In  calm water  make the bobber  wink at you by shaking the rod  tip up and down to give the fly  action    Set your drag lightly  Watch  the bobber intently  Big small  mouth bass often barely take  the bobber under after they  inhale the fly and dont move   Trophy smallmouth bass com  ing from deeper water often  engulf the fly and move shal  lower  causing the bobber to  flop over on its side  Set the  hook immediately if this hap  pens    Tackle shops around Lake  Cumberland or Dale Hollow  Lake carry the correct rods   flies  dope and other float  and fly accessories  An inter  net search reveals dealers that  carry this equipment as well    Burn away the winter blues  with a slipping drag from a  huge smallmouth bass that just  took your fly  The float and fly  is similar to the bobber fishing  you did as a kid  but instead of  bluegill hitting  it is a 21 inch  smallmouth     WKU Fires Basketball Coach McDonald    By   Chad Bishop  The Daily News  Bowling green   The Ken McDonald era at  Western Kentucky University  has abruptly ended    McDonald  WKUs fourth   year mens basketball coach   was fired last week amid a sea  son in which the young Hilltop   pers have struggled to a 5 11  overall record    Assistant coach Ray Harper  will serve as interim head coach  for the remainder of the sea  son  beginning with Saturdays  home game against Sun Belt  Conference opponent Troy    McDonald compiled a re  cord of 62 49 in three plus sea  sons  but was just 21 27 since  the start of the 2010 11 season    I have recommended to  President Gary Ransdell that  Ken McDonald no longer serve  as our head mens basketball  coach  and he has agreed and  supports my decision  WKU  athletic director Ross Bjork  said through a news release this  morning    President Ransdell and I  met with Coach McDonald this  morning to inform him of the  decision  and then we met with  and informed the entire mens  basketball staff  I also met with  our student athletes and dis  cussed the reasons for our con  clusion and told them that we  are committed to all of them  as students and athletes here  at WKU  and we owe them the  great program they signed up  for  All of our student athletes  are the number one priority for  WKU Athletics     I want to thank Coach Mc  Donald for his efforts during  the eight and a half years he  served as our assistant and head  mens basketball coach  We all  appreciate the time he has giv  en to WKU  and we wish him  well    The move by the schools  administration came hours after  WKU lost 72 70 in overtime at  home Thursday to Louisiana   Lafayette   a game that gained  national attention when it was  revealed that Louisiana Lafay  ette scored the game winning  basket with six players on the  floor    Nevertheless  the loss was  WKUs 11th of the season  its  fifth loss in its last six games  and 27th in its last 48  Atten  dance Thursday night  in  which fans were offered tickets

sistant coach at the University  of Texas  guided the Hilltop   pers to a 25 9 record his first  season  reaching the NCAA  tournaments second round   WKU went 21 13 in 2009 10  and 16 16 last season    After last season  WKU an  nounced a so called Team Re  set initiative  which included a  reworking of McDonalds con  tract and promoted a fresh start  within the program    Last spring  I felt Coach  McDonald deserved the op  portunity to begin positive  trends with a new season   and we witnessed some en    couraging elements during  the summer and fall under  his direction  Bjork said in  the release  Unfortunately   as this season has progressed   the plan has not worked out   We have a 5 11 record and do  not rank in the nations top  200 in virtually any statisti  cal category  This is not what  the WKU basketball program  should represent  While we  pride ourselves on having an  energetic and exciting atmo  sphere in Diddle Arena  our  attendance levels are reaching  historic lows  These disturb  ing facts are unacceptable   and we can no longer con  tinue on this troubling course   Confidence  respect  locally  and nationally  public sup  port and an overall positive  perception of the WKU mens  basketball program is lacking   Our historic program is too  strong to be in this position   Simply put  WKU mens bas  ketball needs a new voice    This years team includes  seven freshmen and nine total  newcomers as part of one of  the programs most heralded  recruiting classes    Ken McDonald has served  WKU as both an assistant and  head coach  and I would like  to thank him for the time he  has devoted to our university   Ransdell said through the news  release    Unfortunately  the current  state of our program is both  disappointing and unaccept  able  and we can no longer al  low this to continue  This deci  sion is about the welfare of the  young men in our program  I  want to challenge our fans to    be in Diddle Arena tomorrow  and the remainder of the season  to support these young men and  help rebuild this proud basket  ball program    Harper spent 12 seasons  as head coach at Kentucky  Wesleyan and Oklahoma City  University before coming to  WKU  Compiling a record of  342 63 for an  844 winning  percentage  Harper won four  NCAA Division II national  championships while reaching  the title game on five other oc  casions    Harper was at the helm of  KWC when that program was  found in an NCAA investiga  tion to have used two ineligible  players during the 2002 03  season  Wesleyan was forced  to vacate its 2003 Great Lakes  Valley Conference champion  ship and was placed on three  years probation  Harper was  not named specifically in the  NCAA report    I want to thank Coach Mc  Donald for the opportunity to  serve on his staff the last four  seasons  Harper said in the  release  I would not be here  today if Coach McDonald had  not hired me in 2008  Our sea  son thus far has not gone the  way we had hoped it would  I  appreciate the confidence Ross  Bjork and President Ransdell  have shown me  and I will ap  proach my new role with unre  lenting persistence  energy and  dedication  I ask the Hilltop  per Nation to come together  and support this team  Satur  day  against Troy and for the  remainder of this season  We  have a lot of basketball ahead  of us     Working hard             for hard  working  people

in my day  and I have  always been baffled by why so  many players have trouble mak  ing use of the number 13  Every  one knows that each player is  dealt 13 cards and each suit has  13 cards  but far too many play  ers dont utilize this bridge fact of  life as they should  If they would  simply invoke the magic number  13 more often  theyd find the  play of the cards much  much  simpler    Take this deal where East over  takes the queen of spades with the  king and continues with the ace   South ruffing high  Declarer now  plays the ace of diamonds  on    which East shows out  It is only  trick three  but declarer already  has a vast amount of information  about the opposing hands    He knows from the play thus  far that West started with one  spade and four diamonds  He also  knows from the bidding that West  has at least five hearts headed  by the ace  and probably the  jack also  because West could not  double five diamonds without the  ace and surely would not have bid  two hearts with fewer than five of  them  Ten of Wests cards in three  suits are thus known  leaving him  with at most three clubs    South now tries to take advan  tage of what he has learned  He  realizes that if he simply draws  trumps and plays a heart to the  queen  he is likely to lose two  heart tricks and go down one   To deal with this danger  he first  cashes the A K of clubs  leads a  trump to the ten and ruffs a club   This eliminates the clubs from  Wests hand    South then draws Wests two  remaining trumps before leading  the king of hearts  West  who now  has only hearts left  can do no  better than take his ace and return  a heart  allowing South to score  his ten and make the contract     c  2011 King Features Synd   Inc     BESHEAR  FUNERAL HOME   Call Today  About Our

National Missing Childrens  Day poster contest sponsored  by the Department of Justice  in Washington  D C  KSP will  select a nominee from Ken  tucky and forward it to DOJ  where one poster from all  state nominated entries will be  selected as winner  The artist of  the national winning poster will  win a trip to Washington  D C   and participate in the National  Missing Childrens Day cer  emony where he or she will  receive an award and a U S   savings bond    The theme for the contest is  Bring Our Missing Children  Home    The Kentucky nominee will  receive an Award of Excellence  from KSP  and the winning  poster will be prominently dis  played at the Kentucky State  Fair in KSPs Safety Town  Exhibit    This is a great opportu  nity for Kentucky fifth grade    students to participate in a  national effort that promotes a  child safety educational pro  gram  said Lt  David Jude   commander for the KSP Pub  lic Affairs Branch  The poster  contest and the educational  activities that accompany it are  designed to bring awareness to  the number of children who go  missing each year and serve as  a reminder to both parents and  students the need to be aware of  potential danger  The effective  ness of the program is based  on the concept that a message  conveyed by a fellow student  carries more weight with other  students and is therefore more  memorable    Last year  11 year old Lau  ren Plowman of Waco Elemen  tary School in Madison County  was the Kentucky finalist for  the poster contest    In 2011  Kentucky had 4 520  minor children reported miss  ing  and 179 of those cases are  still active  Nationally  800 000  children are reported missing  every year     Students Invited To Enter  Poster And Essay Contest    Agriculture Commissioner  James R  Comer invites Ken  tucky students to create a post  er or write an essay on agricul  tures impact in their everyday  lives in the Kentucky Depart  ment of Agricultures annual  poster and essay contest
