APPLESEED™ RIFLE CLINICS

Aug 15, 2015 - Aug 16, 2015 8:00 AM

Jackson; Brethitt Co Fish and Game Club
APPLESEED™ RIFLE CLINICS
This clinic is oriented toward experienced shooters as well as beginners.
(You may be surprised to discover that there is much to be learned, even for experienced shooters.)

August 15-16, 2015; Breathitt Co. Fish and Game Club, JACKSON KY

Appleseed™ events offer the best precision rifle marksmanship instruction available anywhere. And the cost is only a fraction of that for any other weekend of any kind of firearms training. In addition, you will learn of the events of the first day of the Revolutionary War and the sacrifices made by those patriots who bequeathed the precious heritage of liberty to us. This history is invaluable for children, as well as for adults. It may even change your life.

Rifle calibers are restricted to .22LR and .223, except for our specially scheduled long range events. Any kind of sights, including scopes, will suffice. However, a semi-auto with a removable magazine will be more user friendly for our purposes. Most shooters at these events use .22s because of the high price of center fire ammunition. Approximately 400 rounds will be fired. A good sling, preferably a G. I. sling, is recommended. Because of the present scarcity of ammunition, we will probably use a reduced round count. Feel free to call the contact person.

The event is FREE of charge (with proper ID) for active military, reserves, guardsmen, and Law Enforcement Officers, as well as elected officials and disabled persons. The fee schedule is: Adults: $60; Youths under 18: $20. RWVA members may receive a special discount. It is a family friendly event, so bring the whole family. Attendance by women has been rapidly increasing and is strongly encouraged. In fact, some of our better instructors are women. Lunches will be available. It is suggested that you bring snacks, a good supply of water, eye and ear protection, elbow pads, a mat to lie on, hat and sunscreen, and some friends. You will meet the nicest people and gain some new friends. The instructors will usually have a few rifles which they are willing to loan to shooters, as well as ammunition.

Pre-registration and additional information is available at www.appleseedinfo.org. Pre-registration is highly encouraged. It is recommended that you bring your computer pre-registration confirmation sheet to the range. Meetings begin at 8:30 a.m. Registration and check-in should be completed before then.

This event is sponsored by the Revolutionary War Veterans Association which is a 501 ( c ) ( 3 ) organization. Our instructors are highly experienced volunteers who receive no payment for their services.

O.A.R. with very special guests Allen Stone and Brynn Elliott

Sep 9, 2015 7:00 PM

Churchill Downs, 700 Central Ave, Louisville, KY 40208
Churchill Downs, America's most famous racetrack, is excited to announce a unique live concert experience this Fall. See O.A.R. live on stage with guests Allen Stone & Brynn Elliott under the Twin Spires on Wednesday, Sept. 9, as we celebrate the start of September racing at the track.


“Music has had a presence at the home of the Kentucky Derby since our track’s earliest days, and we’re excited to partner with Live Nation to renew that tradition with this exciting appearance by O.A.R.,” said Ryan Jordan, General Manager of Churchill Downs. “Our Plaza stage offers an intimate and comfortable setting that’s perfect for both a special evening for O.A.R. and its fans and a wonderful return of live music to Churchill Downs.”


Classic American author Thomas Wolfe famously stated “you can’t go home again,” but don’t tell that to the members of O.A.R. On their eighth studio album, THE ROCKVILLE LP, the shape-shifting rock band found that returning home triggered a journey of creative renewal and inspiration.


“This isn’t about us going back to our musical roots per se,” says lead singer Marc Roberge, who founded O.A.R. in 1996 with his Rockville, Md. high school classmates, drummer Chris Culos, guitarist Richard On, and bassist Benj Gershman (saxophonist Jerry DePizzo joined while the group was at Ohio State University). “It’s about us getting inspired by the place we came from. We’d drive the same roads, visit the old haunts, spend time with our people. Rockville was the catalyst then, and it’s the catalyst now.”


O.A.R. is renowned for its intense, vibrant live show —including selling out Madison Square Garden twice —and the communal feeling it shares with its fans. With each studio album, the band has endeavored to achieve that sense of immediacy, and Roberge says THE ROCKVILLE LP “comes the closest” to that goal.


“Every live band I know of always wants nothing more than to carry their live performance onto the album. It’s an elusive thing to capture, so I’ll never say we nailed it. But I can guarantee we put that same live show energy and passion into each minute of THE ROCKVILLE LP and we can only hope the audience feels that.”

PODS® of Lexington Provides ‘Moving Bridge’ to Homeowners During the Home Staging Process

May 1, 2015 - Jun 21, 2015 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Lexington, KY
An essential tool is helping many Lexington residents to sell their homes quicker while making a better profit. Home Staging allows buyers to see the real potential in making a house a home. The process of Home Staging however, means that current residents need applicable storage that allows them the flexibility to house their belongings for a period of time.

In February 2015, the Lexington market saw 651 homes sold with a sales total of $110,910,615, compared to 605 homes sold in February 2014, based on information from Lexington-Bluegrass Association of Realtors. According to Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corp, a survey found that staged homes spent half the time on the market than non-staged homes and sold for 6 percent above the asking price.

“The buyer needs to imagine themselves in the home,” explains Paul Campbell, Realtor with The Jubilee Team of Rectory Hayden Realtors. “Remove all personal photos and pictures; buyers can easily get distracted. Get rid of furniture that makes the room feel “small.” Consider painting and removing wallpaper. And lastly, if it smells it will not sell.”

Storage providers, like PODS of Lexington, offer homeowners its’ expertise on moving and storing all of their home furnishings to make the process of home staging, seamless.
“From what I’ve seen in the Lexington market, particularly from April to October, people are selling their homes faster than they anticipated by staging their home,” explained Ken Kocon, General Manager of PODS of Lexington. “The flexibility of using a PODS container allows the customer to rent a container from us, empty out their clutter so that their home looks better to potential home buyers and then they can either have the PODS container stored at our warehouse or delivered to their home.”
With the peak buying season already approaching, now is the time for current residents to begin the de-cluttering process and prepare their homes for staging. A 2011 study by The Real Estate Staging Association showed that homes staged prior to listing sold 79 percent faster than those staged after being listed.
“Declutter, declutter, declutter, this is where it’s so important to have a place to put things,” said Campbell.
“So getting your stuff into a storage area like a PODS container, even it’s sitting on the street or in front the house, is by far the best.”
Homeowners are finding they need a “bridge” between staging and moving. Having a PODS container allows them that bridge to store their home furnishings, while allowing them to take their time during the moving process.
“PODS containers can provide that ‘moving bridge’ to customers who need to store their belongings for a period of time between staging their home and moving into their new one, especially if the closing dates do not coincide with one another,” said Kocon. “For my team and myself, we know how to make that moving bridge so the task of moving is easy and seamless.”

Red Barn Radio Welcomes Emmanuel Ridge

ArtsPlace, 161 N Mill St., Lexington, KY 40507
RED BARN RADIO WELCOMES EMMANUEL RIDGE 09/03 AT 8 PM
Emmanuel Ridge We are all about simple. Simple music
with a simple message. We are about our home in the
middle of nowhere Kentucky. Small town America. A place
where the Little White Church still exists. Somewhere
that Saturday evening on the front porch with the radio
playing in the background is what you work for all week.
Where the preacher still comes to visit on Sunday
afternoon for dinner and the Bible is still the most
important book in the house. Emmanuel Ridge is a state
of mind as much as it is a place or even a group. When
you take God, the Bible, and Faith out of the home, you
remove hope. You remove appreciation for what really
matters.

Chopra Center Certified Ayurvedic Lecture Series

207 E Reynolds Rd #260, Lexington, KY 40517
Students will learn the Ayurvedic lifestyle program presented by a Deepak Chopra Certified Instructor. The Chopra Center is based in Carlsbad, California. Holistic Life Sciences is proud to have Chopra Instructor's on our team and bring this event to Lexington, Ky. Ayurveda is an ancient east Indian healing system and lifestyle, this course will provide all the information you need to begin a life filled with balance of mind, body, and soul. From our environmental challenges, our state of stress, weight loss and management our state of health and happiness unfolds. You will learn your personal elemental make up (Dosha) and how the food you eat, how you react to emotional situations, social interactions, mediation practices, and yoga practices will improve how you digest your life. Most may look at digestion as only referring to the food you eat. The digestion process goes far beyond the plate. Your day to day life, events you encounter, what your TV is tuned to, how much you enjoy your job and relationships, and your reaction to these life events all must be digested. If you hold onto those negative emotional trauma’s they will eventually manifest into a disease or illness, even if you ate the perfect amount of food with the perfect nutrition. Some who hold onto weight that eat healthy and workout, and they wonder why? It is because you have 'held onto' undigested emotional baggage. This powerful Ayurvedic knowledge will teach you the release process of the past and how to more efficiently process future emotions. Our goal is for our students to walk away with the knowledge of 'tuning' themselves from one moment to the next no matter what is taking place outside of them.

*****We give 12hrs of continued education credits to massage therapist*****

The Graffiti Run

Kentucky Speedway, Sparta, KY
The Graffiti Run will be the most colorful day of your life. Bold statement, we know (especially if you lived through the 70′s or ever owned a hyper-color t- shirt), but just hear us out. First off, we use the term “run” loosely here at the Graffiti Run. Our 5K course is more about having a blast with friends and family than it is about busting out four-minute miles. So feel free to run, walk, dance, crawl, roll, piggy-back ride, or summersault your way through the color madness. Secondly, the no-six-pack-required course means the Graffiti Run is for EVERYONE (unless you hate color or smiling, then you are not invited). You will see green grand-parents next to pink college students. Yellow marathon runners alongside blue children. Orange moms next to purple unicorns*. We only have two rules: you must get absolutely drenched in color and have an amazing time.
Raising money for local charities! Check out the event location for more details.
The Graffiti run is currently offering 50% off registration for everyone included in the Kentucky Speedway email blast. Go to The Graffiti Run website and sign up for the Cincinnati, Louisville, and Lexington race. Type the code KSpeed50 when prompted during check out to redeem offer!!
