You re- that cares that their middle of September already. Where does all the time go? What did I do with all my time? Did I actually accomplish what I had set out to do this year? When you actually slow down long enough to sit down, it is pret- ty scary how one day more or less runs into the next day. As many of you know by reading my weekly article, I have had the opportunity to slow down just a little bit because of an injury to my horse, Dia, whom I have diligently been working with this year after her being put under saddle last December. Of course, if I had been semi- actively working the horses that I already own and horse keep for, I wouldn't have had the time to ponder on what my year con- sised of as far as ac- complishments, disap- pointments, and where my priorities laid. I guess what I am try- ing to say is that I wouldn't have taken the time to appreci- ate all the experiences I've already had this year and the opportu- nity to re-kindle my relationship with my other horses while ad- justing the road I am traveling down just a little. In fact, it is a little funny how life works sometimes so that we suddenly are forced to snap out of it and realize that it is time to remember that we need to once again DRUGS Continued from Page 1 she said. Maze said she and other judges try to give young drug offenders diversion, which allows them to avoid jail and, in time, have a clean crimi- nal record if they comply with guidelines. But when offenders fund their addictions by turning to more serious crime, Maze said, diver- sion no longer is an op- tion. "A home robbery can- not be wiped away," she said. Bath County District Judges Don Blair and Willie Roberts concurred with Maze's assertion that more than 80 percent of all crimes in the county are directly or indirectly related to drug abuse. Blair praised the large what we should be do- ing, instead of us try- ing to handle it on our own. It is lessons like these that help mold and change our lives forever. This is how working with your horses to create lifetime part- ners seems at times. Everybody at one time or another gets so im- patient about hitting the trails, the show ring, rodeo, maybe even joining a circus, whatever it is that we are all trying to accomplish with our horses, that we forget to take the time to re- flect, teach and work the basics. We don't appreciate where we are right now. There are some people who are lucky, and skip- ping the basics has worked for them, but their day is coming. Their day is coming when something out on the trail, at a show, rodeo or wherever they are with their equine friend, that they will be forced to come to the cruel realization that they are not re spected and thought of as a "leader" by their horse. Let me stress at this point that being a "leader" to your horse is a lot different than scaring, intimidating your horse or having to FORCE your horse to do the things you are asking. As a lead- er, your horse looks up to you for guid- ance !to show and tell them What you want. In other words, they crowd for turning out but lamented that such a large turnout was neces- sary. "We all know we have a problem," he said. 'Commonwealth's At- torney Keen Johnson told the audience that many of the illegal drugs plagu- ing the county are im- ported from other states -- cocaine from Ohio and prescription pain pills from Florida. Johnson called on the federal government to clamp down on the sale of narcotics on the Internet and to fund more detec- tion efforts regarding the illegal cultivation of mar- ijuana, which he called Kentucky's No. 1 cash crop and a gateway drug that leads to the illegal use of hard narcotics. Johnson drew spirited applause when he called for the state to help fund a jail for Bath County. decisions. They actu- ally learn to trust you. Don't get me wrong, this doesn't mean that they won't test you pe- riodically. Remember they are horses, a prey animal, and they are constantly learning while watching and interacting with you every move and step you make. It has taken me A LOT of time, money, hard work and hard knocks, to truly under- stand that my horses want me to be their leader. They don't want to have to make all the decisions. They appreciate my teach- ing them what I want and expect from them. My biggest realization has been that I do not want to just be a pas- senger, I want to be in control and considered by my horses the "al- pha leader"! It has also taken me lots of time to kind of understand how a horse thinks because they DO NOT think like us nor do they share the emotions that we humans have for them. I believe the best way to start to understand and make sense of it all is by ac- tually taking the time by sitting down and watching your horses or someone's horses in- teract with each other. This was extremely hard for a person like me because there is so much that I want to do, feel the need to do, have to do, that I feel like I'm wasting my The county currently houses its prisoners in the Montgomery County jail, which Johnson said causes an undue burden on the county's finances. Near the end of the pro- gram, Dwayne Depp, a former state trooper who is now assistant director for the prevention of child abuse in Kentucky, said in the last three years, 37 drug overdoses have occurred in Bath County, and he called on citizens to change their percep- tion. "If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always gotten," he said. "Please do not let this be the only step you take. The drug deal- ers will think you don't have the courage to take back your community." The significance of the pencils and slips of pa- per became clear when Photo by Charles Mafx A large bullfrog sits along the bank of a local farm pond.

Talk about keeping an open mind! Come on, who really has the time to just sit and watch their horses? I don't know about you, but I've got stalls to muck, buckets to wash and fill, grain to be bought, hay to be thrown down and put up, and the list goes on, not including what my family thinks I should be doing for them. Whew! Well I am happy to say- I-made the time and what a truly amaz, ing eye opening expe- rience it has been for me. I literally grabbed my step stool out of the barn, found a place that was sort of shady and took' the time to observe their pecking order (which I already had a pretty good idea of but it was interest- ing just how far these animals relied upon this order), them eat- ing, playing, and par- ticularly the way they got their points across - ears pinned back and teeth showing at times. A few bucks or "wannabe" bucks here and there. The mutu- al grooming that went on between them and how one would watch as the others dozed. It Was truly educational and worth taking the time to observe the interaction that went on between my horses. To have me try to ex- plain what I felt and observe does not do justice what the whole Trooper Bobby Murray, commander of the More- head KSP post, asked the crowd to "take the next step" and write down information about drug dealers in the coun- ty and drop the slips in boxes held by two troop- ers. Steadily, the boxes filled. ally need to take the time to do your own observations on your own horses for your- self. You will reap many rewards by do- ing this. To be able to finally make some sense af why my horses were having the reactions 'that they were and to recognize that they had the ability to teach me by just observing them is downright amaz- ing! It showed me the little things that I was doing wrong and why I wasn't receiving what I was anxiously so waiting for. Pa- tience...if you would just allow yourself the time to take this all in for yourself in- stead of having me tell you about or you read about it, you would be amazed at what you personally witness and the feelings that are awakened by allowing yourself this experi- ence. I'm sure that a lot of you are probably thinking this girl has really fallen out of her rocker. I will be very honest that this is not for the once a month or once a year pull' your horse out of the pas- ture and ride relation- ship. I guess, I proba- bly would seem nuts to some of you but I'm re- ally trying to relate to the person that every available minute that they get, they are with their horses, doing something, training, games, desensitizing, riding, or whatever it is that you enjoy to do. horse looks to them for leadership and di- rection, in addition to their horses choosing to be spending time with their owner. This is for the person who truly wants to en- joy and hae the best possible relationship that can exist with their horse. So...While reflect- ing on how your year is wrapping up, spend some time observing and listening to your horses, it definitely "will be an eye open- ing and soul awaken- ing experience. Until next week - God Bless You, Your Family and YOUR EQUINE FRIENDS and I pray you all have a safe, blessed, horse-filled week! Crazy Horse Lady P.S.

"Learn the art of patience. Apply discipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of a goal. Impatience breeds anxiety, fear, discour- agement and failure. Patience creates con- fidence, decisiveness, and a rational out- look, which eventu- ally leads to success. - Brian Adams" WELLS FARGO BANK, N.A COMMONWEALTH OF KENTUCKY BATH CIRCUIT COURT DIVISION II ACTION NO. 10-CI-90124 PLAINTIFF -VS: NOTICE OF COMMISSIONER'S SALE EMMA LOOMIS NKJA EMMA WILLOUGHBY, ET AL DEFENDANTS By virtue of a Judgment and Order of Sale entered in Bath Circuit Court on 2 September 2010, to raise the sum of $94,239.37, interest, fees, and the costs of sale, I will expose for sale to the highest and best bidder at the Courthouse door, in Owingsville, Bath County, Kentucky, on Saturday, 25 September 2010, at the hour of 1:00 p.m., the following described property: A certain tract of parcel of real estate lying in Bath County, Kentucky, bounded and described as follows: BEGINNING at a P.K. nail in the center of Pokesville-Moores Ferry Road comer to Track No. 1; thence With the center of said road the following three calls South 3 degrees 22 minutes 00 seconds West, 95.19 feet to a P.K.
