P'age 2 CLJNCI4 VLLEY TIMES, St. Paul, VA, Thursday, October 10, 2013 Hudson Trio and Piano Four" Of shoes..and ships..and sealing Ann Young Gregory A retrofootball weekend Reprted from October 14, 2004 A Clinch Valley Times reader last week mentioned to me that she hopes we go"to another University of Kentucky football game soon--said she likes to read my accounts of 6ur treks to see our alma mater's team in action on .the gridiron. Figuring she's another glutton for pur/ishment, like us, I laughed and told her we'd just been to Lexington, and that even though there was to be "a game this past weekend, I didn't plan to go tolari0ther one until later on in the month. Enough, I thQight to myself when making that decision, is en0tgh, at least for the time being! Even so, Allen, a true blue fan if there ever was one, and David, interested in seeing the Wildcats play their first SEC game.of the season, went to Saturday's game againstA:labama. Although the Cats played reasonably Well in the first half, and into the third quarter (were-behind just 17-14), the team self- destructed as 'th second half wore on, managing only a field goal if0 Alabama's four touchdowns, thus losing 45-17. Peyton and I watched on television at home, just as glad we hadn't made the trip. The week before, however, we did see UK play Ohio Universi.ty, a Mid-American Conference school located at Athens, Ohio. We'd seen the Cats beat Indiana-dae week before that, and felt sure that this one was going another "W" for the Big Blue. In fact, EVERYONE, at least all those who expressed an opinion, felt sure that Ohio U. would be Kentucky's second victim 'of the 2004 football season. As all-too- often happensat UK games, everything went reasonably we!l jn the first half...but it got worse from there. Ohio U., a nice school, but not considered to be a footbal! p0wer, was ontop 28-16 as the buzzer ending the fourth quarter sounded. Pure misery for 'most everybody'--actually, Commonwealth Stadium, which seats nearly 70,000, had been deserted by most of the Kentucky' fans by midway of the fourth quarter, and there were probably only seven or eight thousand left at the end 'of the game. We, of course, were among them, since one who attends a football game with Allen leaves only after the fat lady has sung, so to speak. """ Actually it ggf so bad during the second half that I, trying to ignore what was happening on the field, got a pad and pen from my purse and jotted down odds and ends of the eekend's happenings that I thought you might fiffd,teresting this week, since I'd already planned to wfit about something else for the October 7 issue. ': Nothing on y list was all that gripping, I'll have to admit. A remarkable coincidence DID occur which I found most interesting, since the odds would be stacked against,anything like this ever happening. I think I've to]l" you that although we have a "reserved" spof" in one of the parking lots at CommonweaRh.Stadium, we have to get thereat least three hours befi:1re kickoff in order to get anywhere near the staditrl,itself. Several thousand cars, in any event, end up parked in "our" lot--some up close and some v-e-r-y far back. We were in row five, having arrived at 4:05 for the 7 p.m. game. Most of the people around us were tailgating, although some wandered back and forth taking in the various activities that go on before each game. The people in the car next to us came back to their car with posters at one point, and Peyton asked where they'd found them. The young men shared that information with her, and before long, she, too, had acquired posters. iPads and Tablets @ Work set for October 25 The coincidence occurred when, shortly after we'd taken our seats in the stadium, we saw these same people who'd parked their car next to ours--and they were sitting in seats directly in front of us! Now what are the odds against that, considering that there were 61,415 at that game, at least at the beginning? The part of that trip that turned out to be the most interesting actually developed after we'd gotten home. Here's the background: as we drove into Lexington late Friday afternoon, we were listening to a radio broadcast from the K-House where a reception for the 1984 Hall of Fame Bowl Championship team, in Lexington for its twentieth reunion, was in full swing. The two broadcasters interviewed various team members, and then one of the, reviewing names of people who were on the '84 team, said something like, "Joey Worley was here at UK for one season-- he kicked the field goal that won the Hall of Fame Bowl for this team, then he left UK and has never been heard of again." Allen and I looked at each other, amazed, since we knew that Joey Worley, who had played high school football at Garden, was at UK for longer than one season, and that he had amassed an extremely respectable record as a kicker. Allen later looked it up---it was in no less accessible a source than the football program which he bought at the game Saturday, and confirmed the length of Worley's UK career, as well as some interesting details. (An interesting aside---evidently in honor of the '84 team, both Wildcat football players and cheerleaders dressed for the Ohio U. game in uniforms designed to resemble several uniforms of the past. The retro uniforms were auctioned for charity after the game.) When we got back home, I e-mailed the two broadcasters, having found an e-mail address at the radio station's website. I asked if one of them had, indeed, said what we'd both been sure we heard. I added that if they had, they needed to check, since Joey Worley was a Wildcat during the '84, '85, '86 and '87 seasons. During those years, he kicked 57 field goals and 75 points after touchdown for a total of 246 points, which just happens to be the record for most points ever scored by any UK football player. Anyway, the guy e-mailed back and said he and his radio partner had, indeed, thought Worley was there for only one year. He said that during the Friday interviews, several members of the '84 team had said nobody was able to get hold of Worley to invite him to the reunion. He added that if I could "find" him, he'd be glad to pass the information on to some of his old teammates. I had sent my original e-mail to the broadcasters on Monday and had the reply from them Tuesday. By Wednesday afternoon, a friend of mine with connections in Buchanan County had found me a phone number, and I had had a really pleasant chat with Joey Worley's mother, who gave me permission to share her son's current whereabouts with the broadcaster. Armed with information about Worley, I e-mailed the former UK kicker's address and some other details to the radio guy. I haven't had any response, and don't know if I will'. However, it occurred to me that if I, someone with no more information than where this guy lived 20 years ago, could find him, then surely a large state university's athletics department could have done the same thing...especially if the player was the football team's all-time high scorer!

Career professionals who are thinking of switching to the Protect your from hungry wildlife Hands sponsored by SWCC A return residency by the Hudson Trio will include a concert on Thursday, October 17 at Richlands Presbyterian Chur- ch on 2 "n Street in Richlands. The concert, sponsored by Southwest Virginia Community College, will begin at 7:30 p.m. A reception will follow the con- cert. Admission is by voluntary donation at the door. Americana, a program of irresistible American music, will reflect the trio's eclectic appro- ach to programming, combining standard works of chamber trio repertoire with rarely performed compositions. From Arthur Foote, "The Dean of American ' Composers," comes music of great drama and romanticism, reminiscent of a young Johannes Brahms. A hundred years later, pianist Paul Schoenfield gives us Cafe Music-composed in the restaurant in which he played nightly-where jazz tones mix with fiery classical virtuosity. In between, audiences will hear some of their favorite melodies from Gershwin's Porgy and Bess and an arrangement of his gorgeous piano Preludes. Our favorite Cole Porter song sounds even better arranged for the Trio, and some swinging Scott Joplin Rags will have the audience wanting to dance in their seats. Impressionistic sonorities in New York composer Ernest Bloch's Nocturne feed the imag- ination, and the Orange Blossom Special showcases our take on American country fiddling. The Hudson Trio features violinist Caroline Chin whose playing has been described by the Chicago Sun Times as "...riveting and insightful, who lights up in passages of violin pyrotechnics." Chin, who gave her solo debut at the age of 12, has performed throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. Chin is also deeply involved in music-education in the class- rooms of New York Public Schools where she develops outreach programs. Cellist Robert Burkhart has been dubbed "the adventurous cellist" by Russell Platt of the New Yorker. He frequently col- laborates with living composers as a member of the American Modem Ensemble. He recently concluded a residency at Yale where he was presented on WQXR's "Young Artists Show- case." He has performed with orchestras for over fifteen years and is principal cellist of the New York Symphonic Ensemble, where he has been featured soloist in several tours of Japan. Vladimir Valjarevic, pianist, has been praised by critics for his "caressing legato", "silk-on- velvet seductiveness" (Fanfare Magazine), "beautiful lyricism and a wide variety of tones and colorings, perceptively applied with care" (All Music Guide.) A dedicated chamber musician and soloist, he has performed thro- ughout the United States, Europe and Japan. Valjarevic partici- pated in the European premier of Cage's "Four Walls" in Berlin and Hamburg. At the SWCC Festival of the Arts, he perform- ed world premiers of pieces writ- ten for the Festival by Alek- sandra Vrebalov and Dick Hy- man. He is on the piano faculty at Mason Gross School of the Arts, Mannes College in New York and also teaches at Rutgers University. Valjarevic is affili- ated with the Beijing Interna- tional Music Festival and Acad- emy in China. On Saturday, October 19 at 3:00 p.m. pianist Joseph Trivette will join Vladimir Valjarevic in a Piano Four Hands concert, An Afternoon of Dances for Four Hands, at the SWCC King Com- munity Center. Their virtuosity will include favorites by com- posers Dvorak, Raclunaninov, Moszkowski and Brahms. Ad- mission is by voluntary donation at the door. Trivette holds the Gaynelle Lockhart Albert Endowed Chair in Music at SWCC when he was selected for that position in 2000. He received his Ph.D. in Music Education from Florida State University and is a graduate of Appalachian State University. He won the Appalachian State University's Concerto-Aria Competition three times, performing with the ASE Orchestra. As a collaborative pianist, Trivette has worked with Andre Thomas, Rodney Eichenberger, Mary Goetze, Rollo Dilworth, Judy Bowers and Robert Shaw. Wise Co.

Fencing is contact Jereial Fletcher at 276- the best defense against most 964-7224 or Brenda Robinson at wildlife. A four feet tall fence 276-964-7242. around a small garden will keep out rabbits. Secure the bottom tight to the ground or bury it several inches to prevent rabbits and voles from crawling under- neath. Or fold the bottom of the fence outward, making sure it's tight to the ground. Animals tend not to crawl under when the bottom skirt faces away from the garden. Go deeper, at least 12 to 18 inches, if you are trying to discourage woodchucks. And make sure the gate is secure. Many hungry animals have found their way into the garden through openings around and under the gate. A five foot fence around small garden areas can help safe- guard your plantings against hungry deer. Some gardeners report success surrounding their garden with fishing line mounted on posts at one and three foot heights. Break out the repellents. and reapply as directed. Consid- er using a natural product like Messina's Animal Stopper ( It is made of herbs, safe to use and smells good. Scare 'em away. Blow up owls, clanging pans, rubber snakes, slivers of deodorant soap, handfuls of human hair and noise makers are scare tactics that have been used by gardeners, for years. Consider your environment when select- ing a tactic. Urban animalsare used to the sound and smell of people. Alternate scare tactics for more effective control. The animals won't be afraid of a snake that hasn't moved in weeks. Combine tactics. Use a mix of fencing, scare tactics and repellents. Keep monitoring for damage. If there are enough animals and they are hungry, they will eat just about anything. Don't forget about nature. Welcome hawks and fox into your landscape. Using less pesti- cides and tolerating some crit- ters, their food source, will en- courage them to visit your yard. These natural pest controllers help keep the garden-munching critters under control. And most importantly, don't give up. A bit of persistence, variety and adaptability is the key to success. Investing some time now will not only deter existing critters from dining in your landscape, but will also reduce the risk of animals moving in next season.
