Communikie00 THE BATH COUNTY NEWS-OUTLOOK Owingsville, Ky.--Week of December 12 - December 19, 2002 LETTEI00& [ totheeditor ] Dear Editor: Our American Republic is blessed with a Constitution and a Bill of Rights, designed to bind elected of- ficials to remain within boundaries listed. We are not a Democracy, which is defined as "majority" rule (and can become "mob" rule). Amendment 10 of the Constitution reads: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitu- tion, not prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States, respec- tively, or to the people. A most serious problem today is un-elected, treasonous individuals, who are appointed to responsible positions in our government. Prior to 1975, America had an effective, con- stitutionally-sound internal security system, structured around state and local police agencies, which were assisted by intelligence reports com- piled by the FBI and various con- gressional investigative committees. That system was subverted and de- stroyed, with murderous results, by a network of activities and groups, some of whom are currently promot- ing the proposed Federal "Home- land Security" Department. The power of every totalitarian state rests upon a centralized, milita- rized police force, that carries out the will of a ruling elite, rather than protecting the rights of law-abiding citizens. While the proposed Home- land Security Department, in its present form, would not meet that description, it would certainly be a foundation on which an American Gestapo or KGB could be built. The Homeland Security Depart- ment is not a response to the 9/I 1 attacks; it follows a blueprint that was prepared by power-hungry elit- ists and presented to President Bush prior to September 11, 2001. That conniving clique is cynically exploit- ing our national tragedy, to push through a power grab that will ad- vance its own agenda: total power. Corrupt interests, in and out of government, assisted by 9/11, are moving rapidly to establish a power- ful national police force which would be responsible to nobody but the ruling elite. The rationale is that our existing security structure is inadequate when, in fact, it has intentionally been made inadequate by those pursuing the lib- eral agenda. : Jane O'Bryan Louisville, KY Keep your holidays iii!i)i iiii;:ii:;ii:;):; :;iiiii:; i iil iiiiiii ! i! ii!! i!iilU i iii i iii iii i !i i i;.iii iii!iiiiii! :.::ilii)i:iiiiii!;,i!i:iiiiiiii :.ii)i! iiiii :: iiiiiiiiii:.!il)i!i) Jobless rates lower in 88 KY counties Unemployment rates fell in 88 Kentucky counties between October 2001 and October 2002, rose in 29, and remained the same in three coun- ties, according to the Department for Employment Services, a Cabinet for Workforce Development agency. Kentucky's seasonally adjusted jobless rate in October was 4.9%. In October 2002, five counties had jobless rates at or above 10%, while 11 counties recorded double- digit rates in October 2001. Woodford County's 2.1% jobless rate was the lowest in the Common- wealth. Other low rates were record- ed in Jessamine County, 2.5%; Fran- kli n and Oldham counties, 2.6% each; Barren County, 3.1%; Campbell and Greenup counties, 3.2% each; and Fayett, Gallatin and Henry coun- ties, 3.3% each. Butler County recorded the state's highest unemployment rate, 1.4%. It was followed by Muhlenberg Coun- ty, 1.37%; Harlan County, 11.2%; Magoffin County, 10.9%; Letcher County, 10.2%; Breathitt, Ohio and Russell counties, 9% each; Morgan County, 8.9%; Clay and Monroe counties, 8.4% each. 100th anniversary book underway The University of Kentucky Bas- ketball Museum in Lexington has announced that a coffee-table histo- ry book commemorating 100 Years of University of Kentucky Basket- ball is underway. Just like the crucial role that its fans play in the team's success, they're going to have the chance to show that not only does their blood run blue, but that their ink does too. Van Florence, Executive Director of the popular museum lo- cated at Rupp Arena, says that fans may submit a typed essay about their favorite or most memorable experi- ence or what UK Basketball means to them. If their story is selected, it will be used in the upcoming book. The essays may be up to 250 words and an accompanying photo may be submitted. Responses should be sent to Turner Publishing Company, P.O. Box 3101, Paducah, KY 42002-3101, no later than December 31, 2002.

Those strands of holiday lights look innocent enough but when too many are plugged into the same out- let, the risk of an overloaded circuit occurs. Lights that flicker or dim, a TV screen that shrinks in size, an outlet or switch that feels warm to the touch or a tripped or blown fuse are all signs of an overloaded circuit. Check each light strand before you begin to decorate for cracked or broken sockets, loose connections, frayed or cut insulation. Discard and buy new ones if there is a problem. The rule of thumb is no more than three sets of lights into one extension cord. After plugging your decora- tions up, check to see if the cord is warm to the touch. If it is, unplug some of the decorations or get one with thicker wires. The sparkle of holiday decora- tions delight young children. The best place to start looking for poten- tial child hazards are at eye level...their eye level. This means getting down on the floor and taking a look. Plug all outdoorholiday lights into a special receptacle, GFCI or ground fault circuit interrupter. GFCI receptacles are now required wher- ever an electrical outlet is within 6 feet of water but if your house doesn't have them purchase a GFCI cord set. Test the GFCI to be sure it is working before decorating. This should al- ways be done monthly. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 1,200 people end up in an emer- gency room and another 6,000 are injured each year by holiday decora- tions. Food safety stressed during bad weather The Cabinet for Health Services wants to caution Kentuckians about some of the dangers affecting food safety that can arise during bad weather, severe storms, and other emergencies. "During severe storms, power outages may cause problems with frozen or refrigerated foods in resi- dential freezers and refrigerators," said.Anita Travis, manager of the Cabinet's Food Safety Branch. "Re- frigeration units and freezers con- taining foods such as meats, poultry, dairy products, butter, cheese, eggs, fish, and cooked vegetables, may not nmintain refrigerated-frozen temper-. atures over a long period." Travis said these foods, which can be hazardous if not kept at prop- er temperature, must be kept cold or frozen, to protect the products from spoilage. Here are some Do not open the freezer erator to check contents, loss occurs rapidly and time will be reduced. Co' appliances with blankets insulating materials, to ing loss.
