Dear Colleague and Friends, 

I am deeply saddened to write this letter to you.  

Late last night we learned of a tragic car accident in Lyon County involving four promising young people, three of whom were members of our Murray State University community.  One of our own, Aaron Adams, lost his life in the accident.  The other young man who lost his life lived in Murray and graduated last year from a local high school.  Aaron, a freshman from Cadiz, was studying animal sciences in our Veterinary Technology Program.  We are truly devastated at the loss of this wonderful young man with so much promise.  Kaitlyn Bowers and Joseph Phillips, also Murray State students, both suffered injuries, are recovering and have been released from the hospital.  We grieve for both young men who lost their lives last night in this tragic accident and pray for healing for Kaitlyn and Joseph.  Our thoughts and prayers will continue to be with their families and friends. 

We are a close-knit community and this loss is felt deeply by all of us.  We are making counseling services available for anyone who needs them as we all cope with this devastating accident.  Students may contact University Counseling Services at 270-809-6851.  Faculty and staff needing assistance are encouraged to contact the University’s Employee Assistance Program at 800-441-1327.

Please remember and keep the families of the young men who lost their lives in your thoughts and prayers.  Also, send positive thoughts and prayers to Joseph and Kaitlyn as they heal both physically and emotionally.

Sincerely,

Bob Davies

Apples top the menu at first of three fall Slow Food Pittsburgh events – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette





Unusual heirloom apple varieties will take center stage at the first of Slow Food Pittsburgh’s three events scheduled this autumn.



The group is planning an Apple Dinner Social Night at 7 p.m. Oct. 17, at Quickhatch Coffee + Food in Etna. For the first course, Chef David Bulman plans a tasting course featuring apple varieties that diners might not be familiar with. Slow Food Pittsburgh Co-Leader Virginia Phillips expects Mr. Bulman to showcase heirloom varieties that have fallen off most people’s radar.



The remainder of the menu includes: Buckwheat pappardelle with apple-braised pork trotter, fresh ricotta and roasted apples. Sourdough bread with farm butter and apple butter. Truffled chicken breast with celery root yogurt and walnut-apple confit. Apple cake with ginger custard, milk jam, candied apple and apple sorbet.





The dinner is BYOB, and a vegetarian option is available. Dinner is $50 per person or $45 for Slow Food Pittsburgh members.



Ms. Phillips said all three of the fall events have a “unifying theme” highlighting the work of a single chef or producer. These are people who are “quiet talents” and “under the radar, but we think that shouldn’t be,” Ms. Phillips said. In the case of the Apple Dinner Social Night, the featured talent is Mr. Bulman.



The second event is a Beef Potluck from 2 to 5 p.m. Oct. 22 at Rose Ridge Farms in Waynesburg, Ohio, just under a two-hour drive from Pittsburgh. This event will feature Rose Ridge owner Deanna McMaken’s Global Organic Alliance-certified beef, and attendees will be asked to bring a side dish or dessert to share, plus $5 to cover the beef costs.



“We’ve known Deanna for 15 or 16 years, since the days when we had to recruit carefully raised meat products,” Ms. Phillips said. “You used to have to go to the airport hotel and meet the chicken guy.”



Now Ms. McMaken is one of Slow Food Pittsburgh’s featured meat vendors at its periodic “Laptop Butchershop” events bringing organic and local meats to a central sale location in the city.



The third event is “Don’t Be Shy About Pie,” a pie demo and tasting event from 2 to 5 p.m. Nov. 12 at Auburn Meadow Farm in West Middlesex, who will bring empanada-style pork pies because she raises pigs on her farm. She also intends to make a Rustic Apple-Pumpkin Pie with slices of roasted squash and apples. Ms. Phillips plans to contribute a vegetarian mince tartlet, and her Slow Food Pittsburgh co-leader Susan Barclay will contribute a traditional beef mincemeat pie recipe that has been handed down through her family for generations.



The pie event will carry out Slow Food Pittsburgh’s goal of promoting heritage foods, Ms. Phillips said.



“What’s older than something enclosed in pastry? It dates back to the Middle Ages.”



For information or to register for Slow Food Pittsburgh’s events, go to eastendfood.coop for a registration link to be posted at a later date.

Sheriff Myers announces Drug Take-Back Event – Harrison News Herald

Harrison County Sheriff Joe Myers is announcing, in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), the 12th National Prescription Drug Take-Back spring event.

Locally, the event will be held on two separate days: Oct. 21 & Oct. 28, from 10 am to 2 p.m. at Custer Pharmacy and Rite Aid Pharmacy in Cadiz and Neimayer Pharmacy in Scio.

Each location will accept any unwanted, unneeded, or expired prescription drugs for safe disposal. Please no liquids.

“During the last two take-back events, over 220 pounds of unwanted or expired drugs were collected,” Sheriff Myers stated. “Safe disposal of the drugs is important for numerous reasons.”

According to Sheriff Myers the National Prescription Drug Take-Back event addresses a vital public safety and public health issue.  Many residents are not aware when medicines languish in home cabinets they are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in this country are at alarming rates, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses. Studies show that many abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including the home medicine cabinet. 

In addition, many Americans do not know how to properly dispose of their unused medicine, often flushing them down the toilet or tossing them in the trash can – both potential safety and health hazards.

On Saturday, April 29, 2017 the event brought in 900,386 pounds (450 tons) at close to 5,500 sites across the nation. Marking the 13th National Prescription Take Back Day since September 2010, these events have altogether collected 8,103,363 pounds (4,052 tons) of prescription drugs.

 “Prescription drug abuse is a problem everywhere. It is huge and this provides a great opportunity for folks around the county to help reduce the threat,” Myers said. “I encourage everyone to clean out their medicine cabinets and make your home safe from drug theft and abuse.”

Sheriff Myers wants to remind everyone that there is also a drop box in his lobby which is open 24 hours a day for anyone who need to drop off any other time.
