' News-Outl0ok 2004 inlon- A-9 Proud members of the Kentucky Press Association Ken Metz, Publisher & Managing Editor Margaret Metz, Associate Publisher A person Have you ever heard someone say, "Get your mind out of the gutter?" I have. Many times. In fact, some people have said that to me, after I had told a dirty or off-color story. This was many years ago, but somewhere along the way I leaned better and stopped. Not long after I got in the "motivation" business, I was invited to speak to the West Little Rock Rotary Club and a few days after my presen- tation, an older gentleman of D.A. Sparks, who is now deceased, "Jim, you make a good talk but it's not tell an off-color story." This has stuck these years and I not only took his quit using any profanity at all. It took , but finally with God's help, I was able I said even a four-letter word now, it someone dropping a hammer on my mostly to the media who are exercising peech' but not 'personal responsibility' and profanity being as someone asking the time of or may not see anything wrong with do, and a lot of other people agree with months ago I got a very meaningful e- he principal of the Cleveland High Tennessee. He was asking for use one of my columns in the school's The title of this particular col- is a Factor in Success." He said used profanity in their regular con- thought at all. It has of their culture. in many, many other high Well, and it matters little what part of the care to name. The regular use of pro- dipped down into Middle and Junior as well. Now, let me pause here and question. Is this good and acceptable, Harry Patrick, Office/Composition Tisha Mitchell, Office/Composition Kirby Haskin$, Staff Writer/Photographer Christy King, Staff Writer/Photographer with class doesn't use profamty First, I a_rn going to be so bold as to say, "A per- son with class doesn't use profanity." This comment is in no way meant to imply that a person who uses profanity cannot be a fine person, achieve outstand- ing success, be the kindest and most thoughtful per- son you can imagine. But having "class" is a little bit different in that this person's vocabulary is a lit- tle bit better and they don't need four-letter words to express themselves. I have many good friends and family members who use profanity and I am cer- tainly not judging or condemning them. I will say that if they knew how it sounded to others, they wouldn't do it. In most cases it's just a habit, but it's a habit that can be broken and replaced by some- thing better. During the fall of the year I watch a good num- ber of college football games on television. There is one particular announcer who used to be'a coach, who really irritates me. In the course of the game he will use one particular four-letter word a number of times. I might add, he is the only one of the three announcers on the broadcast team who does this. Even though he may use profanity in his private life on a regular basis, I don't guess he ever stops to real- ize there are thousands and thousands of impres- sionable young men listening to him, that he is influencing them. On the other hand, I can name any number of other announcers who never use pro- fanity and are very careful about the example they set for others. To say it simply, these people have class. As you consider these thoughts, I hope you understand that I am not a preacher and that I am not putting anyone down. Like you, I just care about our precious young people and the direction our coun- try is headed in this important area of life. The use of our language is the one thing we cannot hide. As soon as we open our mouth and begin to speak, we proclaim to others where we stand on the cultural and social pyramid. If you agree with me and believe we 'need to teach our young people "Language is a Factor in Success," let's do our best to set a good example for them.

School org, (Montana motto) Get 'Em While You Can By Don Flood An Indiana man recently suf- fered a severe allergic reaction after eating 30 cicadas that he sautted "in butter with crushed garlic and basil." As you might expect, this story had many people asking, "Is this really the best way to eat cicadas?" And what is the maximum rec- ommended number of cicadas for a single meal? :we want to see continue and even get will take time to read it.

But the man's over indul- gences understandable. After all, these cicadas are a delicacy that come but once every 17 years. Tastier than cockroaches, more versatile than spiders, cicadas are the true stars of the connoisseur's dinner table, per- fect for any occasion from an impromptu bug-eating get-togeth- er to fancy dinner party. Unfortunately, they don't freeze well. (Some have claimed success with pickled cicadas, but the are an acquired taste.) So if you enjoy noshing on big ugly bugs -- and, really, who doesn't? -- now is the time to enjoy them. Despite their culinary popular- ity, cicadas remain something of a mystery, particularly their habit of emerging from the ground only once every 17 years, a cycle thought by some scientists to be related to the real estate market. Still others have theorized that cicadas come out once every 17 years to make sure Alan Greenspan is still in charge of the Federal Reserve Board, as he has been for millions of years. Appearing to bolster their argument is the widespread belief that Greenspan himself is a giant cicada, a theory supported by Congressional hearings where the Fed chief does little but utter incomprehensible buzzing sounds.

But for most people, what really matters is that cicadas taste good and -- because of their rari- ty -- lend themselves to special occasions, such as "cicada par- ties" where people dress up like cicadas. Most grocery stores offer "cicada trays," but check the "Joy of Cooking" for fun and easy 11 12 13 16 : 19 ! I 22 I = 34 35 36 41 46 55 56 57 i ---i 50. Luxudous fur 51. D sharp equivalent 52.

We'll have lunch as we look out over the beautiful landscape. My daugh- ters will remember this experi- ence fondly, They would have, too, except for the bees that live nearby. They love the bright colors on the ice chest, the Pepsi cans, the chip bags. After several near misses, we get back in the car and eat lunch with the windows rolled up, wast- ing all that beautiful sunshine and fresh air.

Because of the cicada's black head and bright red eyes, novices often match their cicada entrees with a deep cabernet or hearty burgundy. This can be a mistake. Despite their appearance, cicadas have a rather mild, delicate flavor and don't stand up to some of the rich- er, more complex wines. Instead, for a nice accompani- ment, try a fruity chardonnay or one of the sweeter Rieslings. And don't forget what may be the best way to enjoy cicadas, a simple but elegant Cicadas and champagne party with your clos- est friends. Especially if they happen to be birds. 2004 King Features Synd., Inc. A Road Trip Reality By Francis Shrum Road trips begin in your imag- ination and culminate when a car- load of smelly travelers crawl out of the car with crackers in their hair and no socks. A recent trip I took across a couple of states to visit relatives was like that. We loaded up the car in the wee hours of the morn- ing with ice chests, sleeping bags, snacks, water and the diaper bag. Me, my daughters and my grandson. Our first stop is to visit an old family grave site. We'll reach there about noon. The weather is custom made--clear and warm without being hot. There's a love- ly picnic spot near the cemetery Crossword Answers Acid Containers c_A O.O.L liE o__u S T I A_ R Y E I S E A_A_ F B._B_ L L A E been light and easy. As the after- noon wears on, things get serious. I feel like the quarry in a fox-and- hound chase. I get out in the fast lane as long as I dare, with the hounds bearing down on me. I jump back in the slow lane behind the pickup truck loaded with spare parts and wooden pallets to let the big truck whip past, but if I want to make our destination by sundown I have to get back out there After several eventful days' visit at our destination we load it all back up and head home on a breezy, dusty Sunday morning. I keep remembering the warning signs on interstate that say the road may be closed by blowing dust. I don't want to spend the night on the side of the road, so we pass up a visit to an ostrich farm we saw on the way here. Besides, the baby is coughing, and we don't figure the wind and dust will help his condition any. Back home on Monday morn- ing, I fill up the car with gas and dig the wadded up tissue paper and candy wrappers out of the seats. I wonder what my daughters will remember most from this trip. Will it be the monkeys with the fluorescent golden hair at the zoo? Will it be riding a big brown horse with the blue mountains shimmering in the distance? Will it be the new and old friends we visited? The things I planned for this trip may not have occurred exact- ly like I envisioned, but I feel strangely sentimental about this cheese cracker I'm scraping off the floor mat. m m o__.
