Patrick, OfficeComposition Tlsha Mitchell, OfficeComposition Kirby Haskins, Staff WriterPhotographer Who cares what others think? If you have ever heard some- one say, "I could not care less about what he or she thinks about me", according to a recent university study, this person was not telling the troth. Over the course of a week I get several press releases sent to me by fax or e-mail. Since I am more or less in the people business, I got one the other day from the Wake Forest University News Service that really caught my attention. It was titled, "WHO CARES WHAT OTHERS THINK?" "Everyone", says a recent Wake Forest University study." From the title you can see where it's going and it may or may not change your thinking, behavior or attitude, it is never-the-less be of value to you. to share this release as it came to me and then I am some of my own thoughts to supplement the "Practically everyone cares what pen- of them; including those who insist they are not opinions, suggests new research by a Wake psychology professor.

People "underestimate the degree to which they are influenced by oth- ers, said Leary, the author of "Interpersonal Rejection" and seven other books. It's hard to know why, but part of it may the American ideal of marching to your own drummer. We grow up thinking we shouldn't be affected by what others think. What is useful about this study is to remind us that perfectly healthy people with perfectly healthy self-esteem are still affected by what others think." To be sure, this university professor knows a lot more about self-esteem and interpersonal relationships than I do, but it seems to me that what this study proves is that human nature is alive and well. When you think about it, we really do care about what others think of us. There are basic human needs that cry out for acceptance and approval and we will do whatever it takes to satisfy those needs. For example, the kid who turns up his radio so loud it can be heard all over town, dies his hair green or has tattoos all over his body is crying out, "Pay atten- tion to me." He definitely cares what others think of him, even if this thinking is mostly negative.. When it comes to having healthy self-esteem, this is a very important part of life, but the only way I have found that we can feel good about ourselves is when we have achieved some- thing really and truly worthwhile. We can't simply tell some- one they he or she is a world-beater and have it stick, unless these thoughts are reinforced and backed up by their perfor- mance. Since the beginning of time, this story has never changed. Our hard earned success, which is what all of us desire, really comes down to deciding what we want to achieve in life and then working hard to make it happen. While we are busy doing this, we won't worry so much about what other people think of us, if we will just realize how seldom they do.

Dear Ken, On October 2, 2003, tragedy struck the Mark Copher family when he was struck and killed by an automobile on Wilkinson Boulevard, in Frankfort, Kentucky. Mark was 36 years of age and the son of Benton and Jane Copher, of Preston, Kehtucky. He leaves behind: "Myke Shields Copher, his widow; a son, Devin, age 15; a daughter, Mykaylee, age 7; a daughter, Sadara, age 2; and a son, Elias, age 4 months. The Copher family are life- long residents of Bath County and Mark's survivors attend the Peeled Oak Christian Church just beyond Preston. We are always blessed when we pull together as a communi- ty for a worthy cause and this will happen when participating churches in Bath County host a Country Christ-mas Benefit Supper and Auction for the Mark Copher family, Saturday evening, December 13, from 5-8 p.m., at khe Family Life Center of the Owingsville First Church of God. The proceeds will go to a trust fund at the Salt Lick Bank forthe Copher children. This will be a hard Christmas season for the Copher family, as they adjust to their loss. So, I'm inviting all of Bath County to join me in uplifting them and supporting this benefit and auc- tion, by doing what you can to help. What an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children! Some of our best work that we can do for God is what we do for others. " In as much as you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you did unto me," said Jesus. Sincerely, Lowell C.

We saw this process at work when in year 2000 the media did not allow Alan Keyes and Pat Buchanan to participate in the TV debates because "they were not polling 15% support" (of the people who were kept in ignorance of their political views, not to mention the media labeling of Pat Buch-anan as an extremist because he held the views which almost all Americans held during the days when "Americans greatest gen- eration" won World War II). In Communist countries, it is Financial aid tip of the month By: Mike Pennington, Eastern/Northern Kentucky Outreach Coordinator for KHEAA There are many companies and organizations offering to help students gain financial aid information on scholarships, grants, and other sources of aid programs for college or technical school. Before paying a fee for financial aid information, talk with your son or daughter's high school guidance counselor; a financial aid officer at the school they plan to attend; the Better Business Bureau in your area ence to the current political or a big joke when they hold a and the area where the company economic scene in the United  "free election" with only one-or' organization is located; and States.

Adam Weishaupt's llluminati Manifesto in 1776 stated, in part, that to gain con- trol of a country it was neces- sary to first gain control of the media. In 1917 J.P. Morgan and other Wall Street bankers decid- ed that, to control public opin- ion in the United States, it would be necessary to gain con- . trol of some 25 metropolitan dailies, which they proceeded to do. We talk about freedom of the press, upon which the freedom of our society rest, but freedom of the press is for those who own the press. The Sherman Anti-Trust Act was passed a century ago to prevent the eco- nomic harm to our country inherent in monopoly. Why isn't it applied equally to the media? The answer seems to be that a virtual monopoly dominant media controls the reelection prospects of the politicians (although we do note there is a minority in Congress, as with some 76 Representatives who, under the leadership of Rep. Ron Paul, have supported a bill to get us out of the New World Order conspiracy of the anti- American United Nations). We are told that our govern- ment is a reflection of the will of the people expressed through their elected representatives. However, this will can only be properly manifested if through the media and the educational process it is properly informed. Otherwise, it is those who con- of the vote. In the United States we can't be so blatant. We just insure that selected presidential candidates owe allegiance to the Council On Foreign Rela-tions, which even the ultra-liberal Washington Post has stated in the past is the nearest thing we have in the United States to a governing elite. And the domi- nant media controllers are all represented in the CFR. Domenica B.
