Do you have any idea how many people then are in this country who live a hand-to- mouth existence? While I don't know the exact number, l sus- pect then an millions, especial- ly in light of the number of bankruptcies that are filed each year. When I say hand-to-mouth existence, of course rm talking about the people who get a pay- check and it's all gone befon the next payday. When I was talking with a young man the other day who is in this predicament, I told him then is no good reason why a person with good health and a sound mind should have to live this way, in light of the tnmen- this nation. situation, my mind gave me an interesting r help to explain why so many people are deep people can get a handle on their to you, but I bet you know some- many restaurants menus and on the reverse side of could be connected to picture of soma kind. The reason for serve as a distraction in case the service a starting point and you could just the outline was complete and you picture. closer to what rm trying to say hen. in school, one of the few things t remember is that "the shortest distance between straight line." This is a principle that affects day of our lives and it also comes into play attempts to connect the dots on that menu that Taking this thought a step further, this the people who are deep in debt existence. The reason this is true is l,Ople can't visualize or see the big pictun, hese people have no goals or the self-disci- straight line to achieve financial success. happens between the dots that does them POor choices and bad decisions and wander Weeks and even months before they an t. All the while they are spending money paying a high interest rate and late the system is rigged for the When a person gets so far down, they give to achieve financial success. The there is still hope for most of these people if fight information to help them get out from under the load. The first step in achieving financial success is mental and that's why it's important to be able to visualize what will hap- pen in the future if they can stay on course, follow a straight line and connect the dots. Here is a good example that will fur- ther illustrate what I'm saying. Just suppose this person is you and you drive an automobile and a friend wants you to meet him at a certain location on the other side of town. The time he wants you to he then is during the rush hour when then is more traffic on the streets than any other time of the day. if you are a person who can connect the dots, here is what happens when you start out on the trip across town. In your mind you begin to visualize the streets, the signal lights and the traffic patterns to plan your route where you can make as many right turns as possible. I've seen people, and you have too, who make a left turn against the traffic during the rush hour where" there is no signal light and they wind up taking their life in their own hands and lose some valuable time in the process. By contrast, people who take time to visualize the tril. don't waste valuable time making left turns against the flow of traffic. Do you see what I am saying? The bottom line is this. To achieve success in any undertak- ing or in life itself, we must be able to connect the dots by using that great mind that God has given to each of us, We must fast visualize the best possible route and then stay the course until we arrive. If you don't already do this, set some goals and begin now to pay yourself by setting aside about 10% of your earnings before spending anything on non-essen- tial items. While you may need debt consolidation, beware of credit card companies and others who offer to help you or those you care about. Remember these people charge for their services and that just adds more debt to the load you may already be carrying. My final question to you is simply this: "CAN YOU CONNECT THE DOTS?"

The blistering heat of August has added to the serious drought conditions in the county, particu- larly in the Southern and Eastern sections, In here, little or no rainfall fias been reported. With corn in the tasselling stage, County Agent Joe R. Thompson says the yield would be sharply reduced, if rain does not come within the next few days. Mr. Thompson notes that early tobacco has shaded the ground and that crops are not suffering quite as badly. Ponds of Bath County farmers take care of most of the stockwater problems, but drinking water is being hauled in some areas. The sprinkler systems in the county are all in operation. Many farmers have discontinued the practice of mowing pastures, during the dry weather. Mr. and Mrs. Billie P.

I read my Bible, and the newspapers, and then I look at the things on the surface. And things just unfold before your very eyes. When I was a young man, I spent a lot of time in an area near the Licking River, and when it would rain enough, the fiver would swell up, and as the river would begin to spill over into the bottoms, you could see logs and railroad crossties and all kinds of trash floating on the surface. Here is what the Apostle Paul said about trash (lst Corinthians 4-13) "Being defamed, we entreat; we are made as the filth of the world, and are the off-scouring of all things unto this day." What Paul was saying was, "This is the way the world looks at us Christians." I, Preacher Conner Corey, want to remind the world it was the trash that was floating on top. Don't feel so bad. Preacher Conner Corey Frenchburg, KY West Nile Virus found in Ky. bird Kentucky's first bird with West Nile Virus in 2003 has been re- ported. A Cardinal found dead in Crit- tenden County on June 30 was tested and found to have the virus. This is the first positive case of more than 100 birds tested this year. One horse in Central Kentucky has been found to have the virus. No human cases have been report- ed in Kentucky. Last year, 693 birds from 101 counties tested positive for the virus. The Department for Public Health advises that the risk of peo- ple and/or animals contracting West Nile is very small and offers the following facts about and tips for reducing the risk of contact with the virus. • Stay indoors at dawn, dusk and in the early evening when mosquitoes are most active. • Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants when you are outdoors. • Spray clothing with repellents containing permethrin or DEET(N,N-diethyl-meta-tolua- mide) since mosquitoes may bite through thin clothing. • Apply insect repellent spar- ingly to exposed skin. An effec- tive repellent will contain 30 per- cent DEET for adults and 10 per- cent DEET for children. • Whenever you use an insecti- cide or insect repellent, be sure to read and follow the manufactur- er's Directions for Use printed on the product. NOTE: Vitamin B and "ultrasonic" devices are NOT effective in preventing mosquito bites. Additionally, people can take the following steps to reduce mos- quitoes around their home and neighborhoods by reducing the amount of standing water avail- able for mosquito breed: • Remove all discarded tires on your property. Used tires are one of the .primary breeding areas for mosqmtoes. • Dispose of tin cans, plastic containers, ceramic pots, or simi- lar water-holding containers. • Drill holes in the bottom of recycling containers left outdoors. • Make sure roof gutters drain property, and clean clogged gut- ters in the spring and fall. Roof gutters can produce millions of mosquitoes each season. • Turn over plastic wading pools and wheelbarrows when not in use. • Change water in birdbaths. • Clean vegetation and debris from edges of ponds. • Clean and chlorinate swim- King Crossword ACROSS 1 Understands 5 Astronaut Grissom 8 Luminary 12 GOP symbol 14 Head light • 15 Libena s capi- tal 16 Alliance 17 Raw rocks 18 Thin cotton weave 20 New Orleans cuisine 23 Sommelier s subject 24 Last write-up 25 Bemadetle s village 28 Calif, neighbor 29 Whom to cherctlez 30 Society new- 48 Ice comer 49 Unaltered 10 32 Beans 50 Recede 11 34 Fourth dimen- 51 Harvest 13 sion 19 35 When the DOWN 20 Frost - the 1 Prized pos- 21 Punkah session 22 36 Lustrous lab- 2 Xanadu 23 nc band, bnefly 25 37 Desolate 3 Pin number 40 Farm struclure 4 Begin to grow 26 41 Wished 5 Donated 27 undone 6 One (Pref.) 29 42 Oribi or eland 7 Sports venues 47 Examination 8 Disgraced 31 format 9 Transport for 33 Most people who are exposed to the virus will not show symp- toms. Even people living in at- risk areas are Unlikely to get sick from exposure to the virus. How- ever, mild symptoms may include slight fever and/or headache, pos- sibly with skin rash and swollen lymph glands. A rapid onset of high fever with head and body aches, neck stiffness, disorienta- tion, stupor and muscle weakness marks more severe infections of encephalitis. WNV can also infect other an- imals such as horses. The Ken- tucky Department of Agriculture's Division of Animal Health is re- sponsible for directing and coor- dinating investigations to deter- mine ifa horse has become infect- ed with WNV. When a horse shows signs of neurological dis- order or an encephalitic disease is suspected, a veterinarian should be consulted. The local veterinar- ian should then notify the State Veterinarian, Dr. Don Notter, at (502)-564-3956. A new website to help Ken- tuckians learn more about West Nile Virus is also available . ....... The website www.westnile.ky.gov/- provides information from various state agencies involved in preventing the spread of the disease and pro- tecting people from mosquitoes.
