Richie Farmer – Kentucky Basketball great; Mustache Commissioner of Agriculture for the Commonwealth of Kentucky

http://www.kyagr.com/commissioner/index.htm

Richie Farmer was elected Kentucky’s Commissioner of Agriculture in November, 2003, and was sworn into office in January, 2004. He was re-elected to a second four year term on November 6, 2007.

Since taking office, Commissioner Farmer has fought vigorously on behalf of Kentucky’s consumers and for Kentucky’s agriculture industry. Commissioner Farmer recently spearheaded an effort to protect Kentucky motorists by persuading the legislature to fund a new state-of-the-art motor fuel quality laboratory. He has improved the efficiency of the Department’s public protection functions by streamlining processes and introducing new technology, and by working with legislative leaders to strengthen consumer health and safety legislation. He has fought vigorously for the expansion of the state’s world-class animal health diagnostic laboratories, which play a vital role in protecting the public health, as well as our signature horse industry and other vital animal agriculture industries. He has also created the Department’s signature Kentucky Proud marketing program, which is helping to expand the markets for Kentucky farm products. Since the inception of the program in 2004 has grown from just under two dozen members to over 1500, and has resulted in the sale of almost a half billion dollars in Kentucky Proud food and farm products since 2006.

Commissioner Farmer has served as the President of the Southern Association of State Departments of Agriculture, an organization that represents farmers and other agricultural interests from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, and the US Virgin Islands. As a national agriculture leader, the Commissioner promoted the interests of Kentucky producers in the creation of the 2007 Farm Bill and other legislation and is currently working with his counterparts representing Kentucky producers in the creation of the next Farm Bill.

The Commissioner believes that children are Kentucky’s most important crop. As such, he has boosted funding for agricultural youth programs such as 4H and FFA, as well as youth livestock shows, even in tight budget times, because he believes they are an important investment for Kentucky’s future.

Born in Clay County on Aug. 25, 1969, he is the second of Virginia and Richard Farmer’s three children. Before taking office, Commissioner Farmer worked as an investment advisor in Clay County. He lives in Frankfort with his wife Rebecca and their three sons, Trey, Thomas and Tate. A 1992 graduate of the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Commissioner Farmer earned a Bachelor of Science degree with a double major in Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness Management. He was also a standout player for the UK basketball Wildcats under Coach Rick Pitino.

Over the years, Commissioner Farmer has given his time to such charitable organizations as the Boys and Girls Clubs, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Children’s Miracle Network, American Cancer Society, and Kicks for Kids.

Founder of Salvation Army – Mustache helping those in need

http://www1.salvationarmy.org/heritage.nsf/0/c2af02232cb1f005802568cd0034a9fa?opendocument

William Booth was born in Nottingham in 1829. At the age of 13 he was sent to work as an apprentice in a pawnbroker’s shop to help support his mother and sisters. He did not enjoy his job but it made him only too aware of the poverty in which people lived and how they suffered humiliation and degradation because of it. During his teenage years he became a Christian and spent much of his spare time trying to persuade other people to become Christians too.


The young William preaching in the streets.

When his apprenticeship was completed he moved to London, again to work in the pawnbroking trade. He joined up with the local Methodist Church and later decided to become a minister.

After his marriage to Catherine Mumford in 1855 he spent several years as a Methodist minister, travelling all around the country, preaching and sharing God’s word to all who would listen. Yet he felt that God wanted more from him, that he should be doing more to reach ordinary people. He returned to London with his family, having resigned his position as a Methodist minister.

One day in 1865 he found himself in the East End of London, preaching to crowds of people in the streets. Outside the Blind Beggar pub some missioners heard him speaking and were so impressed by his powerful preaching that they asked him to lead a series of meetings they were holding in a large tent.

The tent was situated on an old Quaker burial ground on Mile End waste in Whitechapel. The date for the first meeting was set for 2 July, 1865. To the poor and wretched of London’s East End, Booth brought the good news of Jesus Christ and his love for all men. Booth soon realised he had found his destiny. He formed his own movement, which he called ‘The Christian Mission’.

Slowly the mission began to grow but the work was hard and Booth would ‘stumble home night after night haggard with fatigue, often his clothes were torn and bloody bandages swathed his head where a stone had struck’, wrote his wife. Evening meetings were held in an old warehouse where urchins threw stones and fireworks through the window. Outposts were eventually established and in time attracted converts, yet the results remained discouraging-this was just another of the 500 charitable and religious groups trying to help in the East End. It was not until 1878 when The Christian Mission changed its name to The Salvation Army that things began to happen. The impetus changed. The idea of an Army fighting sin caught the imagination of the people and the Army began to grow rapidly. Booth’s fiery sermons and sharp imagery drove the message home and more and more people found themselves willing to leave their past behind and start a new life as a soldier in The Salvation Army.

Inevitably, the military spirit of the movement meant that The Salvation Army soon spread abroad. By the time Booth was ‘promoted to Glory’ in 1912 the Army was at work in 58 countries.

There seems to be no evidence to support the statement made on some masonic websites that William Booth was a freemason.

Christmas – A time to give; a time for Mustaches

George Noory – UFOS, Bigfoot and one classic Mustache

http://www.coasttocoastam.com/pages/george-noory

George Noory, host of the nationally syndicated program, Coast to Coast AM, says if he weren’t a national radio talk show host he’d be in politics. Heard by millions of listeners, Coast To Coast AM airs on approximately 525 stations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Guam.

While hosting The Nighthawk, a wildly successful, late-night program on KTRS in St. Louis, Noory was recruited by Premiere Radio Networks to guest host on Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell.  He became the permanent host of the phenomenally successful over-night program on January 1, 2003, following Bell’s retirement.  Since then, Noory’s audience has continued to grow.

Noory captivates program listeners with his discussions of paranormal phenomena, time travel, alien abductions, conspiracies and all things curious and unexplained. He is driven, he has said, by the desire to solve the great mysteries of our time. From his first days as a radio broadcaster he says, “I’ve wanted to cover stories that the mainstream media never touch—the unusual, the paranormal and things like that. I learned that broadcast was the best business for exploring these issues, and I’ve been doing it for 33 years.”

He dates his interest in these matters to a book by Walter Sullivan, We Are Not Alone, that his mother gave him when he was 13. He was hooked.

Prior to his late-night show on KTRS, Noory had an extensive broadcast career.  He started in radio at WCAR-AM in Detroit where his first-ever interview was with nuclear physicist and UFO expert Stanton Friedman.  From 1974-1978, he served as news producer and executive news producer at WJBK-TV.  At age 28, he became the youngest major market news director in the country at KMSP-TV in Minneapolis. 

Noory was also the director of news planning and development at KSTP-TV in Minneapolis, was news director at KSDK-TV in St. Louis and the recipient of three Emmy Awards while a news executive.

He was born, raised and educated in Detroit. He has three children and five grandchildren. He served nine years in the U.S. Naval Reserve.

Alex Trebek – what’s the bigger legend? His Mustache or Jeopardy

http://www.jeopardyinfo.com/JeopardyCast.htm

Jeopardy host Alex Trebek was born on July 22, 1940 in Ontario, Canada.

He was graduated from the University of Ottawa with a degree in Philosophy, then joined Canada’s main network, CBC (the Canadian Broadcasting Company), where he reported the national news on both TV and radio.

But Alex didn’t find his niche until he became a game show host (or, as ‘Lou Grant’ would say, “a quizmaster”). Over the next 20 years, he would host a wide variety of game shows, including  “Pitfall”, “Battlestars”, “The $128,000 Question”, “Double Dare”, “High Rollers”, The “Wizard of Odds”, “Strategy” and “Reach for the Top”.

In 1984, he landed his big role as host of “Jeopardy!” (replacing former host Art Fleming). For years it sat atop the ratings, as the #1 TV quiz show (until Regis came along with “Millionaire”).

Alex has won two Emmy Awards for his role as host, and was also honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. (It’s located at 6501 Hollywood Boulevard – near Ann Margaret & Vincent Price.)

In his spare time, Alex hosts the annual “National Geography Bee” in the U.S. and Canada.

Trebek became a U.S. citizen in 1998. He now lives in Studio City with his wife (Jean) and two children (Matthew & Emily). He owns a thoroughbred horse ranch in Creston, California (called Creston Farms), and until recently he he also owned a winery called Creston Vineyards.
