News Outlook Your Hometown Newspaper Januaw 16, 2014 - 7 CONTRIBUTING WRITERS Poppy's Ramblin' Mind By:. Greg Lykins Curiosity! That's an in- teresting word because of all of its possibilities. I've always heard the old say- hag, "Curiosity killed the cat", and after thinking about this a while I came to this conclusion, humans are curious, too. At work when we paint something and put a sign on it say- ing, "Wet Paint", it's amaz- ing how many people will touch the object just to see. If we weld something and the sign says "Hot", again it's amazing how many peo- ple will touch it just to find out if it's hot. Curiosity! Am I guilty of this? Yes, I am. I've put my fingerprints on several items with 'WCet Paint" signs on them. If you were in a room alone and there was a closed box with a sign that said,  "Do Not Open", would you take a lit- fie peek? I think a lot of peo- ple would take a little peek just out of curiosity, not to take anything, but just to see what was in the box. While I was in the Navy and we were on a cruise we had a guy that was new, just out of boot camp. Mili- tary people are notorious for pulling pranks on each other. Like I said, we had a new guy on-board and as he walked out on the main deck there were two sail- ors and they had a bucket with a rag over it and they were down on their hands and knees peeking into the bucket. Curiosity! The new guy comes over and asks what they had in there and they told him they had a seabat. They told him they were very rare and ask if he would like to see it. Of course he said yes and leaned over to take a peek. At that moment a third man swatted his behind with a broom. He told the broom man, "Quit, I want to see this bat." Again he leaned over to take a peek, and again he got swatted. This continued about three more times before the young mad realized he was feeling the sea bat. Curios- ity! Keep your chin up, a smile on your face and may God bless your week.

Gateway Area Develop- ment District (GADD) Community Planner Te- resa Shields went through the list of final payments, which included $4501 to contractor PJ Construc- tion; $666 to architect Greg Fitzsimons; $3780 in ad- ministrative fees to GADD; $919 to city attorney Earl Rogers III; and $1225 to electrical contractor JMK for work done on rearrang- ing security cameras. Shields said that of all funding sources, none is left from Rural Develop- ment; $2500 in Commu- nity Block Development Grant (CBDG); $2830 from Appalachian Regional Commission(ARC) funds; $15,384 in an escrow ac- count; and $11,046 in a pri- vate loan. Shields said that the ARC funds are slated to be used for classroom fixtures and energy efficiency, and the escrow funds toward re- payment of the $50,000 pri- vate loan. "[he City of Sharpsburg initially received $1.13 mil- lion in grants and loans for the project in 2011, and last year received another $75,000 grant from Rural Development and a $50,000 loan from Citizens Bank. Shields said that a moni- toring by CGDG officials on Dec. 10, 2013, found that of all paperwork associated with the project, only one certificate was unsigned by the contractor, which was taken care of. In other business, Mayor Dorothy Clemons said that she had consulted with of- ficials at the Department of Local Government in Frankfort regarding Sher- iff Tufty Snedegar's re- quest for an inter-local agreement with the City in order to receive state funds. Clemons said that she was told that the city would have to fund the Sheriff's Office for at least one year in order for the city to qual- ify to receive the funds. Sheriff Snedegar made the request of both Sharps- burg and Salt Lick City Councils in December 2013. Sharpsburg City Council members tabled the request, while Salt Lick City Council members ap- proved the agreement. Clemons said that she was not taking any further action on the matter since the city could not afford to provide funding to the Sheriff's Office. City Council members also approved an agree- ment between the city and the heirs of the Milford and Wanda Lee Jones to pay for the demolition of a barn on the family property at 98 Back Street. Family members had re- quested in December 2013 that, because of the danger- ous condition of the barn, which stands next to a mo- bile home on Back Street, that the city assist them in paying for the $2700 of the $6500 demolition and clean-up costs. The agreement states that family members will pay back the $2700 over two years in four install- ments while a lien is placed on the property by the city. The demolition, by Tim- othy EUiott of Maysville, is expected to begin as soon as the weather permits. The next regular meet- ing of the council is sched- uled for Monday, February 3 at Sharpsburg City Hall. GRANNY SHE'S FARM The Kentucky legislature is open; and as of Friday Jan 10th, 189 bills were filed in the House and 68 bills in the Senate. Since I have "trust issues" regarding the people we elect to represent us, I like to look over the bills as they come out. Most of these will never become law, but keeping watch is a good idea Forewarned is fore- armed, as the saying goes. Before I get into my picks of bills to watch, let me give you two excellent resources to help you pick out some of your own bills of inter- est: 1) the web page for the legislature www.lrc.ky.gov and 2) KET TV coverage of each day's proceedings in the legislature http://www. ket.org/legishture/. I rec- ommend checking these sites frequently during the time the legislature is in ses- sion-this because new bills are constantly being added and others are being modi- fied. Most of the network news will focus on the issue of having casinos to help pay for education in the state (SB 33). However, I find the bills below to be much more interesting. Granny Sue's Four Bills to Watch in 2014 SB 31: "AN ACT relating Some Bills to Watch to the prohibition against implementing the United Nations Agenda 21. Create a new section of Subchap- tar 1 of KRS Chapter 224 to prohibit a state agency or political subdivision of the state from implementing any part of the United Nations Agenda 21 that is contrary to the United States or Ken- tucky Constitution, or being a member of or expending any public funds on a group or organization that will implement any part of the United Nations Agenda 21." SB 43: "AN ACT relating to medical cannabis. Create various new sections of KRS Chapter 218A to establish a comprehensive system for medical cannabis in Ken- tucky, including provisions for medical verification of need, persons allowed to cultivate, use, and possess the drug, organizations al- lowed to assist In providing the drug, regulation by the state Department for Pub- lic Health, interaction with state and local governments, including law enforcement, with persons and entities coming within the purview of the Act, and the estal> lishment of required report- ing and review procedures; amend KRS 2183.040 to con- form; name the Act the Can- nabis Compassion Act. HB 11: "AN ACT relat- ing to drone surveillance. Create a new section of KRS Chapter 500 to define "drone," "law enforcement agency," and "prohibited agency"; prohibit a law en- forcement agency from using a drone to gather evi- dence or other information; provide exceptions; prohibit use of evidence obtained in violation; provide that the Act may be cited as the "Citi- zens' Freedom from Unwar- ranted Surveillance Act." HB 151: "AN ACT relating to local firearms controls. Amend KRS 65.870 to autho- rize exceptions to the local firearms ordinances prohibi- tion for ordinances related to firearm safety." Don't forget to call your Representative and Senator with your opinions. I like to use the message hotline (1- 800-372-7181). All you do is tell the receptionist what bill you support and what bill you oppose. They will ask you who to give the message to, but if you do not know, they will look up your Repre- sentative or Senator for you by county. It really couldn't be easier! Get involved-- this is your governmenL too. God bless you, Granny Sue ferent slow cookers). Add barley and bay leaf during the last hour of cooking. Remove meat, and chop into bite-size pieces.
