I want to take some time this week to touch on a couple of issues and things dear to me, and then next week we’ll see what the wind blows in for me to discuss. So just bear with me.
The fair has once again come and gone. There were plenty of activities for everyone and the weather was fairly nice for most of it. We got to see people proudly display their pets. Local artists, with the camera, the brush or with their “geen thumb”, held a showcase of their talents as well.
We saw some very talented young people this past week. The singing, the ability to play music, even the declamations should have been enough to make us all proud. The future looks bright around here, if we just can harness their energy and make it work for the betterment of our community.
The livestock farmers, goat farmers and let me not forget my favorite, chicken, were all on hand as well. It is nice to know we still have people who are still working the farms, of all types. That is what keeps America truly going – the farmers.
Of course, we dealt with a little rain on Parade Day. Not the first time it has happened, so we should have been prepared. The parade, though using a shorter route, was still nice. I loved many of the floats, in fact I loved them all. But I must say a congrats to the Powell Circuit Clerk’s Office (overall winner), the Clay City Elementary (school winner) and The Bowen First Church of God (church winner). I would be remiss if I did not say I thought the Parkway Florist float was awesome, I loved the hot air ballon; and the float by Bark and Bath Dog Grooming with the dogs which were dyed red and blue was great. The whole thing was great!
So to the Lion’s Club and everyone who helped, thanks for putting on another good show.
If you read the front page this week, there are several stories that probably caught your eye. You know they caught mine and I will address those issues another time. But the story I am both happy we have and saddened at the same time is about Dr. David Gagnon closing his office.
As many of us know, he has cancer and has been fighting it rather well in recent years. In fact, he has outlived the expectations and has even increased his prognosis to be better for him. He is leaving now to take part in a trial study I suppose to help deal with his disease and I wish him all the best.
He has been my doctor for 25 years. I even had black hair the first time he treated me. He has seen me in good days and bad. He has helped me through illness and despite my not listening too well over the years, he continued to care about my health.
His demeanor and sense of humor was one that I grew to love dealing with. We’ve had some fun, usually at my expense, but it made life easier. I never dreaded going to his office, though the frequency has been more over the past 10 years than the first 15. I guess old age and not listening to him years ago has caught up to me. There were days you could tell he was having a rough day and maybe sometimes I didn’t complain about those aches or problem because they just weren’t that important, not when you watch him work on and continue to follow his oath.
Nevertheless, I am going to miss him. You see a family doctor is just that – family. Take care Doc and I know you don’t always agree with this column and I don’t always listen to your advice. But in life the only thing that matters is how did you touch those around you. You’ve done a pretty good job, so rest a while now but stay in touch because friends are hard to come by and you are a friend to many here.
I’m just saying . . .

For my entire life I have been a lover of home-made candy, and my grandmother Mommie Katie was one of the best candy cooks I have ever known. She did not make candy very often so when she did, it was a special treat.
One fall Saturday afternoon, Kenneth Hansel and I were playing in her yard when she called through the screen door for us to come to the kitchen. I first thought we were in trouble but she quickly explained that she wanted us boys to do a favor for her. She said, “David Joe, if you and Kenneth will go to the woods and gather me a large bucket of hickory nuts, I will make some old fashioned fudge.” Kenneth and I were very excited because we both loved her fudge candy, and we exclaimed we would go immediately.
She provided us with a large galvanized bucket and told us to fill it to the brim with the nuts. She added before we left, “Now boys do not bring the nuts back with the hulls still on them, I just want nuts not the hulls!” Kenneth and I were very familiar with the trees in our part of the county, so we decided to walk to the Big Fill Cave area where we knew we could find enough hickory nuts to fill her order.
We scampered down US25 until we reached the Vaughn farm and crossed the fence to the rocky road that led to the cave area. It was probably about a mile from Mommie Katie’s house to the wooded property near the cave. As soon as we reached the site, we began to survey the trees to locate enough nuts to fill her bucket. As the cool fall wind swirled around our feet, we picked up the nuts that had fallen to the ground. It took us about two hours to gather enough nuts. Most of our time was spent using rocks to remove the hulls before we dropped the nuts into her bucket. As soon as the chore was complete, we hurried back to her house with delight in our eyes.
We rushed through the kitchen door with eyes as big as saucers, and exclaimed, “Here are the nuts, Mommie Katie!” We thought our part of the proposition was complete only to hear her say, “Now you boys go out to the back yard and get a large rock and Pop’s hammer so you can shell the nuts for my candy.”
We looked at each other with a sigh of resignation on our faces. Kenneth said, “Do you know how long it will take us to shell all of these hickory nuts?” My answer was, “How bad do you want some of her hickory nut fudge?” The question was of course rhetorical. Kenneth loved her candy as much as I did. So we set out to remove the small morsels from the extremely hard shells.
Pop provided us with a concrete block and a couple of hammers to complete our task. For the next few hours, Kenneth and I hammered away at the bucket of nuts. Gradually, the bowl that Mommie Katie had provided us started to fill – and our muscles began to ache. Finally, the bowl was filled to the brim, and we took our prize to Mommie in the kitchen. As we walked through the kitchen door, I said, “The hickory nuts are all shelled, so how long will it be until the candy is ready?”
At this point, Mommie Katie began to chastise us about getting in a hurry. She explained that she had dinner to prepare and that it would be later that night before she could start making the candy. We of course were disappointed but the thought of her candy gave us reason to remain excited about what was to come.
Kenneth and I considered the possibility that the candy would not be done until almost bedtime, so we walked to his house to see if it would be alright for him to spend the night with me. His mother consented, he put some clothes and his toothbrush in a paper sack, and we returned to Mommie’s house. After dinner, we volunteered to wash the dishes so she could begin the candy making.
We sat on kitchen stools watching the Master at work as she flitted around her kitchen with bowls and wooden spoons carefully measuring evaporated milk, sugar, cocoa, butter, and vanilla. Mommie used the old-fashioned method of determining when the mixture had cooked long enough. I never did understand the “soft ball” test to see if it was done.
Finally, she poured the dark mixture into a large glass baking dish to cool. She explained that she was going to set the dish out on the porch to facilitate the cooling process. That was alright with us because our mouths were watering as we anticipated the fine fudge.
After a couple of hours, she announced that the fudge should be cool enough and that we could go with her to retrieve our reward. As soon as we walked onto the porch, Mommie began to scream, “Get out of here you nasty cat!” Pop’s barnyard feline had been walking around on our fudge! Tracks were all over the top of the glossy, shinny candy. Kenneth and I would have cried but we were too old for that. Can you imagine the disappointment we experienced?
The moral of this story is you should always protect your interest when working as hard as we did that day. I think Mommie Katie would have skinned that cat if she could have caught the rascal. She apologized and went to bed.

House cleaning is not my favorite pastime. As a matter of fact it takes up too much of my precious and sparse free time, but like many other things it falls under the heading of a necessary evil.
With five males dominating my household there is always some sort of cleaning to do and at times my frustration with this fact drives me to my limits. But through a course of trial and error I have discovered a few priceless allies in my battle against dust bunnies and grime. I decided I would pass on a few of my own tried and true cleaning companions that have made my job as chief dishwasher and maid somewhat easier.
In my humble opinion no house or weary mother should be without a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. These glorious little wonder workers will take up just about anything.
I have removed everything from floor scuffs to bathtub rings with one of these square jewels with little to no effort whatsoever. Crayon marks do not even stand a chance.
My only cautionary tale with this cleaning tool is that you don’t allow your child to rub it across their skin because it has been known to produce a burning rash, but as with all cleaning supplies mothers know to keep them out of reach.
My next faithful house cleaning companion is a can of Scrubbing Bubbles. I have actually found that the generic Wal-Mart brand works just as well with the assistance of the Magic Eraser and the cost is somewhat smaller.
Anyway, tubs caked with soap scum come out shiny and clean when sprayed down with this miracle worker. The best part of using this type of cleaner is that your shoulders do not feel like they are going to fall apart from scrubbing because the cleaner does all the work.
I have also used this cleaner to spray the area where the floor meets the wall because it is great at getting into those tight spaces and working the dirt out. A quick swipe with a paper towel and my dirt hoarding corners are clean, for at least a few days or hours.
If your house has hardwood floors there is no better sweeping utensil than the Swiffer sweeper. I love my little dust cloth on a stick because it will pick up any little dirt particle and it slides easily under the furniture although sometimes I don’t like what gets pulled out from under there.
Also, the clothes are great for dusting the furniture. I usually use one for my regular dusting then use it on the floor too. Once one side of my Swiffer is completely full of dirt I simply flip it over and use the backside which I have found works just as well and allows me to get more for my money.
My only problem with this sweeper is the fact that if you happen to run across a wet spot, say dribbles from a leaky sippy cup, then it sticks to the floor and is pretty much useless until it dries. Other than that, and the fact that they no longer make the Swiffer Max size, it is by far the best sweeper I have ever used.
In the laundry department I have tried many different detergents mainly because I have been determined to find a cheaper yet highly effective brand that can thoroughly clean dirty boy clothes.
No matter what I try I always go back to Tide with bleach. No other detergent that I have tried gets out grass stain and ground in yuck better than this brand. If you can find the large boxes on sale it is a pretty good deal, but most of the time I am not happy with the price tag. When it comes to the cleanliness of my children’s clothes I am willing to make the sacrifice.
So there it is, my small list of must have cleaning supplies. Please keep in mind these are just my opinions. I must add that bleach is also an absolute necessity whether you have children or not. Its uses are seemingly endless, and no matter what magic tool you use I say try the generic brand at least once and you may be pleasantly surprised to find that it works just as well at a lower cost.
I hope that my personal tidbits are helpful in your quests to purge your households of dirt and dust bunnies. A mother’s work is never truly done and I could clean every minute of every day and still not get completely through, but at least with my trusty sidekicks I have a fighting chance.
Have a great week and may your cleaning days be short and successful! “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10

Roads and water lines comprised most of the agenda last Thursday at the meeting of Stanton City Council. Mayor Dale Allen described the improvements to the council.
Providing an update on the 11,000 foot of water lines along Cow Creek Road, he said: “The water lines are almost complete except for pressure reducing valves which have been ordered and should be received in a few days. After the valves are installed and we conduct two bacterial tests, then the project will be complete.” He added that samples of the water must be sent to laboratories and that the results must show that no bacteria are present in the new water lines.
In other business, Allen opened bids for blacktop to be used to repair damaged areas of the city’s streets. The two bids were awarded to Goodwin and Sons Paving of Clay City at costs of $13,990 and $3,975. Areas to be refurbished include: Breckinridge Street, Railroad Street, Blackburn Street, Church Street, East Riverview, and West Riverview. Work on these projects should begin in approximately one week.
Mayor Allen also announced several appointments that he has made recently. They included: Faye King has agreed to serve another term on the Tourism Board, Tony Morton was re-appointed to the Tourism Board, Tommy Mays will serve on the Park Board, and Patty Howell was appointed to the Planning and Zoning Board.
The topic of the Kentucky State Police Drug Task Force agreement between the city and the KSP was again brought to the attention of the council. A discussion concerning the salary of the city police officer, overtime, travel, and other relevant matters was held. The council decided to table the matter until the next regular meeting, which will be held on Oct. 8 at 6:30 pm. Chief of Police Kevin Neal said he will contact the appropriate officers of the KSP to be present at that meeting to answer questions from the council.
Mrs. Janis Trent appeared again to complain about the dust on Industrial Drive. She said, “Well, what are we going to do with the problem that has been going on for years?” Evidently, the dust is a problem again.
City Attorney Scott Graham replied, “We need to have the Zoning Officer (Ed Hash) issue her (Mrs. Montgomery) another citation for the dust on Industrial Drive.”
