Loves Travel Center    Dr  Floyd Poore approached the city council  at the end of 2011 about whether such a venture  would be welcome    Before the proposed development could be  constmcted  the city council will have to decide  whether or not to make a text amendment to  their zoning ordinances that would allow a  truck stop in a highway commercial zone    If this is what the city decides to do  then  they do the text amendment  send the issue to  planning and zoning  where they vote on it and  if they approve it return it to the city for the city  to do an ordinance  which requires two meet  ings  said Laura McClanahan  the citys zon  ing administrator    The truck stop  which would feature a  Subway and Hardees Restaurant  would be  constmcted on 30 acres    We definitely  need to hear our  citizens views  and comments  on what they want  their city to look  like        Laura  McClanahan   Williamstown  zoning administrator      on the west side of the   w WG dfifinitGly Interstate 75 inter   change at Barnes  Road    It would feature a  convenience store  gas   diesel pumps and park  ing for 90 tmcks over  night    Williamstown  Mayor Rick Skinner  said the developers  have not given the city  council a traffic count  for the project    We have asked  them for one  Skinner  said  They indicated when they talked to us  before that the highest volume of traffic is actu  ally from the motoring public and includes cars   tmcks and RVS    Skinner said he wasnt worried about the  tmcks getting into the tmck stop  but more  concerned about how they would exit the prop  erty    The developers are planning to present a  formal proposal to the council at 6 p m  on Feb   21     McClanahan encouraged the public to attend  the meeting and express an opinion    Well need to do the necessary research to  look at our existing ordinance to see if this  development fits  but we definitely need to hear  our citizens views and comments on what they  want the city to look like  she said     Subway employee  tackles would be robber   June M  Coplan  41  of Columbus  Ohio   was arrested for second degree robbery  after police say she attempted to rob the Dry  Ridge Subway on Jan  30    According to police  Coplan entered the  restaurant  next to Check Smart on Broadway  and ordered a sandwich   She alleged handed the  clerk a  5 bill and when  the clerk opened the regis  ter  police said Coplan  grabbed money from it  and ran outside    The clerk followed and  chased her through the  parking lot  Near the  Burger King  police said  the clerk tackled Coplan    Grant County Sheriff Chuck Dills said  nearly all the money was recovered except  for some bills that were blown away by the  wind    Coplan was arrested and lodged in the  Grant County Detention Center      June

unxsutawney Phil    Pennsylvanias famous   groundhog  will either see  his shadow today  Feb  2  or  hell retreat to his burrow    Folklore says if he sees his shadow   there will be six more weeks of win  ter    Grant County groundhogs dont  share the same kind of popularity    In most cases they are considered a  nuisance    Theyre not as big a problem as  they used to be  said Chris  Ammerman  Grant Countys  Agriculture Extension Agent    While the groundhog is mostly a  plant eater  its their annoying bur  rowing habit that causes the most  problems    The damage comes to animals  who fall into the burrows and break a  leg or when the groundhogs dig  around a barns foundation  he said    Ammerman said the local ground  hog population is kept in check by  coyotes    As far as the accuracy of the pre  diction  groundhog proponents say  the rodents forecasts are accurate 75  to 90 percent of the time  While others  say the predictions may have only  been correct less than 40 percent of  the time     CHECK YOUR  GROUNDHOG  KNOWLEDGE     The largest ground  hog celebration is   held in Punxsutawney   Pennsylvania     In Alaska  Feb  2 is  observed as Marmot Day  rather than  Ground  hog Day  because   there  are few  ground  hogs in  the state     The 1993 comedy  movie Groundhog Day   featuring Bill Murray   has the main character  relive the day over and  over again

really remember what it was  like on my first day of kindergar  ten at Crescent Springs  Elementary    I couldnt tell you if I was excited  or I cried and begged my parents to  not leave me at such  as strange place with  even stranger peo  ple    But  having cov  ered schools for  more nearly a decade  for two different  newspapers  I can  honestly say my two  favorite work days  of the year is watch  ing kindergartners  on their first day and  seeing them gradu  ate at the end of the  year    I have been to Williamstown  Elementary the past few years on  opening day to see the young children  begin their educational journey in  kindergarten    Some are thrilled to be there  hav  ing watched a older sibling take the  path before them    Others are less than happy as tears  stream freely down their cheeks as  their parents walk out of the room    Its an emotional day for a lot of  people    You would be hard pressed to find   Personally Speaking   is the opinion of the writer and does not  necessarily reflect the  editorial opinion of the newspaper     anything more adorable than seeing  those same little boys and girls months  later all grown up  wearing caps and  gowns  as they moved toward first  grade    You would think a famous celeb  rity had showed up at the  ceremony and brought  paparazzi to Williamstown  with the amount of cam  eras flashing that night    Everyone from parents  and grandparents to teach  ers and siblings could not  be prouder of the gradu  ate    At Williamstown  they  have a tradition where they  show a short video featur  ing the students dressed up  like what they want to be  when they grow up    There are a lot of bas  ketball players  soldiers  firemen and  doctors    The funniest is when a student  dresses like a police officer and pre  tends to handcuff one of their friends    Watching the video always makes  me wonder what these boys and girls  will be like 12 years from that day and  they put on another cap and gown and  get ready to join the real world    Who knows how much their lives  will change before that time  but it is  never clearer that they are growing up  fast and they wont be mommy and  daddys little boy or girl much lon  ger    Its impossible not to think of my  own children    That is the part that makes me the  most emotional I think     My oldest son will be turning 5 this  summer and will be starting kinder  garten in August    There is about 99 9 percent of me  that is beyond pumped for him to start  school    Financially  it will be a blessing to  not have to spend so much on day  care    But  even more importantly  I am  looking forward to watching him learn  and grasp new ideas and become the  man I know he will become    I cant wait to go to school pro  grams and volunteer for field trips and  be a part of this experience with him    I know he is ready    With a teacher for a mom  he likely  has a leg up on most incoming stu  dents already    Sure  he will be just as nervous as  the other students  but he will adjust  quickly and be fine    But  there is still that sliver of a  percentage that wants to chain him to  his room so he can never leave while  I look for some magic potion that pre  vents him from growing up    Time goes by too fast    I dont want to miss anything and I  dont want the feeling of coming  home to my two boys to ever end    I know there will come a day when  it will be time for them to leave the  nest and fly on their own    I just wish it didnt seem like the  countdown was already beginning     Bryan Marshall is a staff

that  it be 2012      Gingrichs incensed reaction was in  response to a question about personal  allegations from his second wife    Gingrich literally bellowed at the mod  erator that the questions

NEWS  Thursday  February 2  2012 5    DOWN AND DIRTY   Smell that   Skunk season is here   I suppose every day is potentially skunk  season but right about now things start to  heat up  Mating season is upon us so  skunks are on the move a bit more than usual   I have been reminded as such by a faint funk  in the garage every morning  I learned a seri  ous lesson several years back when the dog  got a direct shot to the face and we had a  lingering stench that was other worldly   Skunks are mostly nocturnal  nomadic and  solitary   except during their mating season   We dont see them too often and when we do  it is usually road kill this time of the year   When it comes to the stripped skunks in our  area their general behavior consists of sleep  ing in some sort of den during the day  We  have had skunks at the farm take up residence  in old fox dens  ground hog holes and in the  barn  Skunks are typically active from dusk  to dawn  which is a little odd because they  have poor eyesight  They have a good sense  of smell  however  and rummage around at  night for a meal of small rodents  grubs and  other meaty insects  A rotten stump with a  host of living creatures working to expedite  the process of decay is a treat if you are a  skunk    Love Stinks   Several years ago  probably the same year  Buck got skunked in the face  we had a skunk  that would cruise around the house every  evening  we would go from window to win  dow trying to catch a glimpse of the resident  skunk rummaging in the mulch and when we  finally caught a glimpse we were struck by  the fact that our skunk was nearly all white   So  it is not that they have white stripes but  rather two black bands on their sides that are  more or less there  This white skunk was  probably a female  because she was a regu  lar  the males are the  ones really on the move  and as such the ones that  get hit by cars more fre  quently  Females usually  stay within a half a mile  of their den and males  push on nightly in search  of love    Males are polygamous  so the females end up  being the sole caregivers  of their litters that aver  age one to eight babies   Baby skunks  called kit  tens  are born in April and May with a gesta  tion period that lasts about 63 days  so if you  do the math most skunks are pretty busy right  now    Aromatherapy   Here are some things to be aware of if you  know you have skunks in your area  Skunks  have abnormally large musk glands on both  sides of their rear end  The musk has an oily  component to it so it sticks  Skunks have amaz  ing accuracy when it comes to fending off  those that threaten them  They can hit their  mark perfectly at six feet and have generally  good aim up to 20 feet  If you come across a  skunk and she starts stamping her front feet   run  Just before they release their musk they  give a warning stomp  rise up on their front  legs  lift up their rear and bulls eye  youve  been skunked  If you receive a direct hit it is  not comparable to the general skunk smell   Rather the stench is a combination of burning  rubber  sharp  fresh garlic and a little sulfur   The animal lives up to its Latin name  Mephitis  mephitis  which translates as bad odor  bad  odor  If you do get a hit  the best a mixture for  a wash is a quarter cup of baking soda  two  tablespoons of Dawn dishwashing detergent  and a pint of peroxide  It works better than  most other concoctions we have tried     Jeneen Wiche is an avid gardener from  Shelbyville  She can he reached at Jwiche   shelbybb net       Jeneen   WICHE   Weekend   Gardener

VIEWS   Cheering Crowds   A s we start the year and think about  the race set out before us in these  coming months I am reminded about  my experience running the Flying Pig  marathon  a 26 2 mile race    When we finally got to the place where  we would be running the marathon  there  were thousands of people who were on the  sidelines cheering us on  What was amazing  is that these people didnt know me from  anyone else and yet  because my friend had  encouraged me to put my nick name Z Man  on the front of my t shirt  as I would be run  ning  people would be yelling out  Go  Z Man  You can do it    People I did not know were cheering me  on and encouraging me    What I realized in running that race was  that there would be people who would finish  ahead of me and people who would finish  behind me  It wasnt about completing the  race in a certain period of time that defined  I was a success  but rather  it was more about  finishing the race    How much easier  and helpful it was to  have people who  were encouraging  me as I was running  the race    There were peo  ple at the water sta  tions handing you  something to drink    There were peo  ple who would run  beside you and  didnt even know  your name but would  give you a word of encouragement    It reinforced in me how we often will iso  late ourselves or run our race alone  But  when we allow others to run it with us  when  we join with other people  we accomplish so  much more    We can be an encouragement to one  another  It really isnt about the time that  you run the race in  but more about the pro  cess of how we go about it and that we  attempt those things in our lives that are  challenging  and ultimately that we finish  the race    Therefore  since we are surrounded by  such a great cloud of witnesses  let us throw  off everything that hinders and the sin that  so easily entangles    And let us run with perseverance the race  marked out for us  fixing our eyes on Jesus   the pioneer and perfecter of faith    For the joy set before him he endured the  cross  scorning its shame  and sat down at  the right hand of the throne of God   Hebrews  12   1   2      Jerry Zehr is is

Willoughby tosses down his opponent during a tri meet between Western Hills  OH   Conner and Grant County  Jan  25 at Grant County High School    Braves finish second at tri meet    Braves wrestler Cody Miskell scores the final two points of the  giving the Braves a one point win over the Mustangs     By Matt Birkholtz   Sports Writer    The Braves wrestling  team hosted their second  home meet in the two year  programs history Jan  25 at  Grant County High School   placing second out of three  teams    In their first match  the  Braves wrestled Western  Hills High  School  OH    edging out the  Mustangs  42 41    It was close  like last sea  son  coach  Matt Shearer  said  That win  in the end by  junior heavy  weight Cody  Miskell was the  deciding fac  tor    The individ  ual matches included Austin  Gripshover pairing up  against a female wrestler   He pinned her to win the  match    Its a lot different   Gripshover said  You get  your nerves up  because you  dont want to lose to a girl   but she was pretty good and    it was a good match    For Gripshover  it wasnt  the first time he has wrestled  against a female opponent   but he said it is no different  than wrestling another guy    He didnt really want to   but what do you do  You  have to be fair and equal  and more power to them   Shearer said    Miskell got the opportu  nity to wrestle  for the first  time on the  home mat   since Cooper  High School  didnt have a  heavyweight  the previous  match    In his  match  it was  tied for the  first two peri  ods with no  one having an  advantage on  the scoreboard  In the third  period  Miskell took a 5 0  lead  and then froze on the  floor  thinking he had  enough time to get away  without a penalty    I learned that no matter  how much time is left  wres  tle to the end  Miskell  said     With time winding down   Western Hills came in to tie  the match at 5 5  marking  overtime  In overtime  the  first one to score a point  wins the match  The antici  pation from the crowd grew  as the referee signaled the  overtime to begin  Miskell  began pushing back and  forth with his opponent   before finally getting him to  the ground  scoring two  points and winning the  match    Cody had five points on  him and then laid flat   Shearer said  You cant do  that    With Western Hills being  40 plus miles away  they  went into a match with  Conner  so Grant County  had to wait to face Conner  after the matches were  done    Coach Shearer said dur  ing this time  he has his  wrestlers rest for a little bit  then get focused again for  their second match    I will go and get into  their heads to make sure  they are focusing on their  upcoming matches  Shearer  said     Conner dominated the  match with Grant County   defeating the Braves 48 27     The loss to Conner  gave the  Braves a second place finish  in the tri meet    With just a couple of  matches left remaining  before regionals  Shearer is  making sure that the wres  tlers are staying healthy in  preparation for Feb  10 11  at Boone County High  School     I think we are doing  good  Shearer said  We  are a lot further along than I  thought we would be and I  wouldnt be surprised to see  at least three of the guys  making it to state    The state meet is Feb   16 18 at Alltech Arena in  the Kentucky State Horse  Park in Lexington     match against Western Hills

  t a      V        It is the General  Assemblys Constitutional  duty every 10 years to realign  our voting districts according  to population after each  census  This act fulfills the  requirement of the principal  and law of one person  one  vote  In this the third week  of session  that is what the  Senate and House did with  House Bill 1  According to  tradition  the Senate draws  its lines while the House  of Representatives decides  on theirs  My district now  consists of Grant  Scott  and  part of Kenton counties    As chairman of the State  and Local Government  Committee  I have worked  extensively over these past  months with my fellow  members to draw districts that  follow our Constitution  The  final congressional district  lines are still being discussed  between the chambers  Since  the House has adjourned   there will be no agreement  today  The Senate was  prepared to continue working  and is under no self imposed    One person  one vote    constraints  to pass a bill  simply to  pass one  the  congressional  filing deadline  can be   extended to  assure citizens  right to   participate in  the process    Our  position has always been  that the current congressional  districts should be changed  minimally to constitutionally  conform to population shifts so  that most Kentuckians will be  able to benefit from the same  representation and maintain  electoral accountability  Any  attempt on either side to gain  new political advantage from  the congressional redistricting  process would be futile  It  is our hope is to complete  the process soon so that we  can move on to other issues   such as jobs  education  and  health care  that matter to all  Kentuckians    Governor Steve Beshear    gave his Budget  Address outlining  his priorities  for Kentuckys  budget  As I have  been warning   we have close to  a billion dollar  shortfall   742  million to be  exact  over the  biennium  I was  glad to see that the  Governor took a more realistic  approach to the budget  He  also proposed cutting certain  agencies by 8 4 percent   However  the Governor then  proposed about  800 million  of additional spending   This approach will never be  reviewed and considered by  the General Assembly    The House of  Representatives has assigned  the budget proposal to its  budget subcommittees  When  they have finished putting  their mark on the document  and the House passes the bill   the Senate will then have its  turn at reviewing and revising  the proposal  I will keep you     J    updated on that process    We are in a 60 day  legislative session so there is  still plenty of time to let me  know what topics interest  you  The heavy workload of  social workers and how to  curb meth abuse were just two  of the topics that committees  focused on this week  These  and other discussions and  debates will continue in the  weeks ahead    I can be reached through  the Legislative Research  Commissions toll free  message line at 1 800 372   7181 or at Damon Thayer   lrc ky gov    Note  Senator Thayer   represents the 17th Senate  District which includes  southern Kenton County   and all of Grant and  Scott counties  He is the  Chairman of the Senate  State and Local Government  Committee and serves on the  Agriculture Committee  the  Licensing  Occupations and  Administrative Regulations  Committee  and the  Transportation Committee     Hearing Governor   Beshears budget address  reminded legislators of the  many challenges that lay  ahead if we are to meet our  obligations and still find ways  to move Kentucky forward   Even though our economy  is slowly improving the  reality is that we must bridge  a  742 milhon shortfall for  the next two years  As in any  budget year  the Kentucky  General Assembly must now  study the governors plan  and make changes and edits   This is a long process that  will take weeks of analysis   discussion  committee   meetings  and compromise   While Kentuckys economy  improves  economists estimate  only modest growth for the  next two years    The governors proposal  calls for most government  departments and cabinets to  slash their budgets by 8 4  percent on top of the 25 30  percent cuts which have been  made in the last four years   These reductions will be  deep and felt by citizens all  over Kentucky  There were  some bright spots among the  dark clouds in the governors    Adams updates legislative  session progress    address  His  plan does not  affect K 12  funding  the  Department  of Public  Advocacy or  corrections  and limits cuts  to universities  and law   enforcement  agencies  In  answer to the recent terrible  deaths of Kentuckys children   the governor proposed a   21 million increase to hire  desperately needed social  workers and support staff    Kentucky has the highest  rate of colon cancer in the  nation which is why the  governor has requested  1  million to be matched by a  1  million grant from a private  foundation for free colon  cancer screenings    To help our unemployment  rate the governor wants to  provide  20 million in bonds  for our high tech grant and loan  program  This reinvestment  will retain and create jobs and  put more Kentuckians back to  work    The road fund is another    positive aspect  of Kentuckys  budget   Continued  growth will  allow local  governments  to see more  funding for  critical road and  bridge repairs   As we analyze  the details of the  governors budget  House  members also remain busy  addressing the many issues  now before the General  Assembly  House members  moved forward in recent  days to finalize redistricting  plans while also considering  proposals to generate new  revenue  strengthen education  and reduce crime    House Bill 30  a proposal  to generate dollars for schools  would allow local districts  to sell advertisements on  school buses  The bill would  prohibit certain types of  advertising including alcohol   tobacco and sexually oriented  businesses  HB 30 passed in  the House of Representatives  by a vote of 67 29 and will  now be considered by the     Senate  Keeping Kentucky  children in school and  lowering our dropout rate  are the goals behind HB 216   The legislation would require  children to ultimately stay  in school until they turn 18   HB 216 passed out of the  Education Committee by a  vote of 21 1    The debate continues as to  howbestto limittheavailabihty  of pseudoephedrine  which  is found in over the counter  sinus medicine  Legislators  are considering a number of  proposals to help eliminate  the manufacturing of Meth  while being sensitive to needs  of Kentuckians who may not  have access to a doctor or  health insurance    You can stay informed  of legislative action on bills
