CommuniLic00 THE BATIt COUN'TY NEWS-OUTLOOK Owingsville, Ky.--Week of December 12- December 19, 2002 12 Funds for housing--The Kentucky Hous- ing Corporation presented Frontier Housing with a check of $262,500 from the Affordable Housing Trust Fund to provide affordable homeownership opportunities for low-income families. Pictured left Funds from unclaimed 'Pink Christmas' has ' lotto prizes go for unique gifts, portion of affordable housing proceeds go to charity I --from front page I --from front page I derstand how much this means," he said. Penny Young, Renaissance Di- rector at Kentucky Housing Corpo- ration, who presented the check to Frontier echoed this sentiment, "Af- fordable housing is key to improving the quality of life for low-income families in Kentucky. It is such a basic need. The Trust Fund, with support from the Kentucky Lottery Corporation, thanks to our state leg- islature, is helping to meet this need. Much of the Trust Fund's success can be attributed to the amount of leveraging it creates. We have learned that a community's willingness to leverage AHTF funds with such in- kind donations as material and labor is key to ending poverty housing in the Commonwealth." The AHTF was created by the 1992 General Assembly to address critical housing needs of very low- income Kentuckians--below 60 per- cent of the statewide median income. Local governments, housing author- ities, nonprofit organizations and/or statewide housing assistance orga- nizatkms are eligible to submit an application for these funds. Propos- als are evaluated according to area of need, community cooperation, will- ingness to serve very low-income persons, other funds leveraged, con- struction costs, geographic distribu- tion, permanency and affordability of housing and housing/services ex- perience.

Though her business can be frus- trating, Shrout says her motivation comes from people she will never know; and the artisans who pour their time, talent and soul into the pieces that they create. "When I look at my bags, I imag- ine their hands skillfully stringing each tiny bead in just the right place," she says "I know that their world and mine are inexplicably different--and yet we share a love of making beau- tiful things." BOOKNOOK NEWS Bath Co. Memorial Library Linda Denton They're here! The holidays have arrived. Outside of autumn, in gen- eral, this is my favorite time of year. The colors, the music, the family get-togethers, the giving of gifts, the sparkle, and the art and craft oppor- tunities ... You've heard the expres- sion "gifts from the heart?" The arts and crafts you create take time, ef- fort and, hopefully, consideration for the person to whom they go, so they definitely fit in that category. When you start to consider all the likes, dislikes and personalities on your gift list and feel at a loss, where do you turn? Your local library, of course. You'll find the latest maga- zines, with all their creative sugges- tions, along with a wealth of books, both old and new, with all kinds of creative ideas. One of my favorite series is called Gifts of Good Taste. They feature a variety of subjects or combinations of subjects, like Yummy Recipes and Creative Crafts or A Year of Gifts of Good Taste, etc. Because of that, you won't find them all shelved in the same place, so be sure to check the card catalogue, so that you don't miss any possibilities. These books not only have craft ideas, directions, and patterns, they also show you how to make gift packages or bags that go with them. Another series along those lines is It's In The Bag. Tasty Gifts in Crafty Sacks. Do you have a griller on your list? There's an idea on page 100 that might just do the trick. If it's a bird watcher you're creating for, check out page 102. For a camper/fisher, check out page 23. In The Nick Of Time is another one filled with all kinds of ideas, including ornaments, decor, recipes, and gifts. Some things are really good to do with the kids, like the Gingerbread Delight idea on page 93, where you'll find the recipe for Gingerbread Bars, and the directions for making a Gingerbread Box in which to give them. If you crochet, take a look at pages 62 and 63 for directions for a beautiful cranberry red afghan. Some magazines publish annual books with craft and recipe ideas. Fiber crafts, including crochet, sew- ing, knitting, embroidery, and tec, are well represented in _Q_qgJllLY_ Woman Christmas 2000. If there's a new baby on your list, you'll find directions for a crocheted hat and mittens on page 102. For somebody who prefers the country look, try making the machine sew Patchwork Tablecloth on pages 90 and 91.
