Bourbon County, Kentucky

Bourbon County is a county located in the U. S. state of Kentucky. As of the 2010 census, the population was 19,985, its county seat is Paris. Bourbon County is part of the Lexington -- KY Metropolitan Statistical Area, it is one of Kentucky's nine original counties, is best known for its historical association with bourbon whiskey. Bourbon County was established in 1785 from a portion of Fayette County and named after the French House of Bourbon, in gratitude for Louis XVI of France's assistance during the American Revolutionary War. Bourbon County, Virginia comprised 34 of Kentucky's 120 current ones, including the current Bourbon County; this larger area became known as Old Bourbon. Bourbon became part of the new state of Kentucky when it was admitted to the Union in 1792. Whiskey was an early product of the area, whiskey barrels from the area were marked Old Bourbon when they were shipped downriver from the local port on the Ohio River; as it was made from corn, it had a distinctive flavor, the name bourbon came to be used to distinguish it from other regional whiskey styles, such as Monongahela, a product of western Pennsylvania, which may have been a rye whiskey.

The use of the term Old in the phrase Old Bourbon, was misconstrued as a reference to the aging of the whiskey rather than part of the name of the geographic area. The port known as Limestone, now Maysville, was in Bourbon County until the borders were redrawn in 1789 when it became part of the Mason County of Virginia, it is now in Mason County, Kentucky. Thirty-four modern Kentucky counties were once part of the original Bourbon County, including the current county of that name. Except for a few distilleries that were authorized to produce it for medicinal purposes, the bourbon industry was wiped out in 1919 when Prohibition took effect. Kentucky adopted prohibition a year earlier than the national prohibition. Within the boundaries of Bourbon County as it stands today there were, by some counts, 26 distilleries. All of these were shut down in 1919, no distilleries resumed operation there until late 2014 – a period of 95 years. At present, alcohol production and sales in Kentucky are regulated by a patchwork of laws which the Kentucky Supreme Court called a "maze of obscure statutory language".

The courthouse was destroyed by fire in 1901, resulting in the loss of county records. The current courthouse is the county's fourth. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 292 square miles, of which 290 square miles is land and 1.9 square miles is water. There are no sizable lakes in the county. Primary among these is Stoner Creek; this large stream is a principal tributary of the South Fork of the Licking River. The county's topography is predominantly rolling hills. Due to agricultural development little of the county's land area can be characterized as forested, though deciduous trees are a common feature of the landscape. Harrison County Nicholas County Bath County Montgomery County Clark County Fayette County Scott County As of the United States Census of 2000, there were 19,360 people, 7,681 households, 5,445 families residing in the county; the population density was 66 per square mile. There were 8,349 housing units at an average density of 29 per square mile.

The racial makeup of the county was 90.38% White, 6.94% Black or African American, 0.15% Native American, 0.14% Asian, 0.01% Pacific Islander, 1.36% from other races, 1.02% from two or more races. 2.60 % of the population were Latino of any race. There were 7,681 households out of which 32.80% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 54.70% were married couples living together, 12.30% had a female householder with no husband present, 29.10% were non-families. 24.80% of all households were made up of individuals and 11.10% had someone living alone, 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.49 and the average family size was 2.95. In the county, the population was spread out with 25.00% under the age of 18, 8.10% from 18 to 24, 28.60% from 25 to 44, 24.70% from 45 to 64, 13.60% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 38 years. For every 100 females, there were 94.60 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 91.00 males. The median income for a household in the county was $35,038, the median income for a family was $42,294.

Males had a median income of $30,989 versus $23,467 for females. The per capita income for the county was $18,335. About 12.30% of families and 14.00% of the population were below the poverty line, including 19.10% of those under age 18 and 11.90% of those age 65 or over. For most of the 20th century Bourbon county was a reliable Democratic county. However, since the dawn of the 21st century it has now become a solidly Republican county.

1964 United States presidential election in Alabama

The 1964 United States presidential election in Alabama was held on November 3, 1964. Alabama voters chose ten representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for President and Vice-President; the early 1960s had seen Alabama as the epicenter of the Civil Rights Movement, highlighted by numerous black church bombings by the Ku Klux Klan in "Bombingham", Birmingham city official Eugene "Bull" Connor's use of attack dogs against protesters opposed to racial discrimination in residential land use, first-term Governor George Wallace's "stand in the door" against the desegregation of the University of Alabama. During the primaries for selecting Democratic presidential electors, there was bitter fighting in all five Deep South states. Johnson. However, in Alabama, the May 5, 1964 primary chose a set of unpledged Democratic electors, by a margin of five-to-one, whilst Governor George Wallace refused President Johnson's civil rights and desegregation legislation via the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Unlike in Mississippi with the MFDP, no effort to challenge this Wallace-sponsored slate with one loyal to the national party was attempted. Johnson would become the third winning president-elect to not appear on the ballot in Alabama, following on from Abraham Lincoln in 1860 and Harry S. Truman in 1948. Under Wallace's guidance, the Alabama Democratic Party placed this slate of unpledged Democratic electors on the ballot, against the advice of some legal scholars, but after planning to run for president himself, decided against this in July, it was expected that this slate – the only option for mainstream Democrats in Alabama – would be pledged to Wallace himself, but the Governor released them from pledges to vote for him if elected. Once campaigning began, Wallace supported Republican nominee Barry Goldwater and did nothing to support the unpledged slate against the Arizona Senator, although he did campaign for Democratic candidates for state and local offices. Republican Barry Goldwater, viewed as a dangerous right-wing extremist in the older Northeastern heartland of the Republican Party, was thrashed there as had been uniformly predicted before the poll, with Texas Governor John Connally saying Goldwater would win only Alabama and Mississippi.

His opposition to the pending Civil Rights Act and Medicare plus his ability to unite white Alabamians of different classes meant Goldwater could capture the "black belt" counties that were the basis of Alabama's limited-suffrage single-party politics, at a time when 77 percent of blacks still had not registered to vote. Goldwater did well in those Appalachia counties where Republicans had been competitive in presidential elections at the height of the "Solid South". Only in the North Alabama counties of Lauderdale, Limestone and Cherokee – hostile to Goldwater's proposal to privatize the Tennessee Valley Authority – and in Macon County, home of Tuskegee University, did Goldwater not obtain a majority. With powerful opposition to TVA privatization, those northern counties voting against Goldwater did so by no more than twelve percent in Limestone County; as of the 2016 presidential election, this is the last election in which Sumter County, Greene County, Wilcox County, Lowndes County, Bullock County voted for the Republican candidate, as well as the last time that Macon County did not vote for the national Democratic candidate.

This was the third occasion when a Republican nominee carried Alabama, but the first outside of Reconstruction elections in 1868 and 1872, when Ulysses S. Grant carried the state. Despite Johnson's landslide victory that year, winning 61.1% of the popular vote, the highest percentage to date, he lost to Goldwater in four other solidly Democratic Southern states – Louisiana, South Carolina and Georgia. With 69.45% of the popular vote, Alabama would prove to be Goldwater's second strongest state in the 1964 election after neighboring Mississippi. OurCampaigns - AL US President Race - Nov 3, 1964

Henry Kelly

Patrick Henry Kelly is an Irish radio and television broadcaster, journalist. Kelly was born in Athlone, County Westmeath and educated at Belvedere College SJ, at University College Dublin, where he was auditor of the Literary and Historical Society. Whilst at university he wrote theatre reviews for The Irish Times. After graduating from University College Dublin with a degree in English in 1968, he became journalist with The Irish Times, was swiftly promoted to the post of its Belfast-based Northern Editor in 1970, at the start of civil unrest and The Troubles in Northern Ireland, a post which he held for five years. During his time in Ulster he published the book How Stormont Fell, still regarded in its field. In 1976 he left The Irish Times and moved to London to work as a reporter for the British Broadcasting Corporation, on its Radio 4 The World Tonight programme. In 1980, in a complete career change at the age of 34, Kelly abandoned journalism and choose to pursue another career in television, presenting light entertainment shows.

Whilst at university, Kelly had been a friend of the family of Terry Wogan, was drawn to try to emulate Wogan's career path by the professional success that Wogan was experiencing by the late 1970s with the BBC. In 1981, Kelly secured a co-presenter slot on the United Kingdom's ITV television channel with the London Weekend Television prime-time light entertainment show Game for a Laugh, a sufficient ratings success to make him a household name in the country, he remained with the show until 1983. In June 1983, Kelly joined TV-am, became the host of the Saturday edition of "Good Morning Britain" with Toni Arthur, he was a regular stand-in presenter on the weekday programme and presented "Summer Sunday" over the years. He left the TV-am in 1987. From 1987 to 1996 he presented Going for Gold, a lunchtime television quiz game show broadcast on BBC1 with contestants from across Europe, where he coined the catchphrases "What am I?" and "Now you're playing catchup!". In 1988 he returned to journalism and once chaired After Dark.

He had appeared on that programme discussing the activities of the Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association's in Ulster, which he had witnessed first hand as a journalist in the early 1970s. In 1999 he appeared as himself in an episode of the BBC television situation comedy Dinnerladies. In 1992 Kelly was one of the launch presenters of Classic FM presenting the weekday mid-morning show from 9 am to 12 noon, he moved on to the Breakfast Show, until replaced by Simon Bates in June 2003. He returned between 2008 to present a three-hour show on Sunday mornings. In September 2003, Kelly took up the Drivetime slot on London news-and-talk station LBC 97.3. In February 2004 he declared himself bankrupt thirteen years after the Inland Revenue had sued him for the non-payment during the 1980s of income tax and national insurance contributions. At the end of 2004, Kelly and some of the station's most experienced presenters, such as Brian Hayes and Angela Rippon, did not have their contracts renewed. Kelly announced that he was leaving the radio station to pursue his television career, but employment in television subsequently proved scarce.

Kelly spent two weeks in June 2005 presenting the late show on BBC Radio London 94.9, in September 2005 took over the weekday mid-morning show on BBC Radio Berkshire from 10 am to 1 pm. He presented a Saturday mid-morning show for the station until 2015, he appeared on Sky News television reviewing the Sunday morning newspapers.

In 1994 he won the inaugural William Roache Charity Classic Invitational, held at Woburn. How Stormont Fell Musical Anecdotes Henry Kelly on IMDb

Buckeye–Woodhill station

Buckeye–Woodhill is a station on the RTA Blue and Green Lines in Cleveland, Ohio, USA. It is located at the intersection of Buckeye Road and Shaker Boulevard; the station comprises side platforms below grade west of the intersection. Two concrete stairways, one on the north from Buckeye Road and the second on the south from Woodhill Road, lead down to the platforms. There is a small parking lot north of the platforms off Buckeye Road; the station opened on April 11, 1920 as Woodhill, when service commenced on the line west of Shaker Square to East 34th Street and via surface streets to downtown. The station was located at the mouth of a cut over a mile in length from Shaker Square; the cut averages 25 feet in depth, but just before Buckeye–Woodhill it is up to 40 feet deep, with a 2.44 percent incline down from the Shaker Square. The line was constructed with a tunnel under the intersection of Buckeye and Woodhill Roads, built without disturbing the automobile and streetcar traffic above; the location of the tunnel dictated the placement of the line.

The material excavated from the cut was used to create an embankment to carry the tracks over the railroad tracks and streets west of Buckeye–Woodhill. The embankment is high as 50 feet at places; the cut and fill provide the means for the trains to traverse the Portage Escarpment that separates much of the city of Cleveland from suburbs such as Shaker Heights and Cleveland Heights. In 1980 and 1981, the trunk line of the Green and Blue Lines from East 55th Street to Shaker Square was renovated with new track, ballast and wiring, new stations were built along the line. At Buckeye–Woodhill, new platforms were installed, the wooden stairways were replaced by concrete stairways covered by tinted acrylic glass canopies; the renovated line opened on October 30, 1981. Between 2011 and 2012, the RTA renovated Buckeye–Woodhill once more with funding received as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act; the platforms were renovated with tactile edges installed, the covered stairways were replaced with ones of a more contemporary design and appearance, new wheelchair ramps were installed, making the station ADA accessible.

The rebuilt station was dedicated on October 23, 2012. St. Elizabeth of Hungary Catholic Church Weizer Building St. Andrew Svorad Abbey

Tromsø Satellite Station

Tromsø Satellite Station, until 1988 known as Tromsø Telemetry Station, is a satellite earth station located in Tromsø, Norway. The facility is owned by Kongsberg Satellite Services, a joint venture between the Kongsberg Group and the Norwegian Space Centre. In addition to hosting its own antennas serving thirty satellites, TSS acts as the center-point of KSAT's operations and provides backbone services for the high Arctic Svalbard Satellite Station and the Antarctic Troll Satellite Station. Proposed in 1965, the station was established by the Royal Norwegian Council for Scientific and Industrial Research in 1967 in close cooperation with the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment and located adjacent to Tromsø Geophysical Observatory. From its inception until 1974, it served low-Earth orbit satellites operated by the European Space Research Organization. To a lesser extent it was used by Canadian Space Agency and National Aeronautics and Space Administration LEO satellites. Norway's non-membership in ESRO and the European Space Agency caused Tromsø to not become a ground station for Landsat.

A gradual increase in operations occurred from 1982, such as for the International Cospas-Sarsat Programme and the European Remote-Sensing Satellite. TSS became part of NSC in 1990, although it was sold to the Swedish Space Corporation in 1995. SvalSat merged with TSS in 2002 to form KSAT; the first proposals for a telemetry station in Tromsø were made in early 1964. The concept was to build a real-time telemetry station which would allow for simultaneous observations of the ionosphere from both satellites and sounding rockets; the idea was backed by Norway's Space Research Committee. Ideas for a real-time telemetry station arose in ESRO and NTNF included the project in its five-year space program in 1965. Similar proposals were made in northern Sweden and a race started between Norwegian and Swedish interests to gain ESRO's support for a station. Norway had budgetary limitations prohibiting a full-scale station, instead support was gained from the United States and Canada; the project was backed by NDRE.

The choice of Tromsø as a location for a telemetry stations was in part tied to the Tromsø Geophysical Observatory—which had been located in Tromsø since 1928—and the planned University of Tromsø. The Canadian Space Agency was at the time working on the Alouette 2 program and were seen by NDRE as a natural cooperation partner; the NASA's International Satellite for Ionospheric Studies was being designed and NASA therefore decided to supply equipment for a telemetry station in Tromsø to be operational by August 1966. Parallel to NDRE's work, NTNF was working with ESRO to gain support for a telemetry station. There was a degree of urgency as ESRO wanted the facility completed by 1967 in time for the launch of the spacecraft ESRO-2. NTNF and ESRO were working on the establishment of Kongsfjord Telemetry Station in Ny-Ålesund; the agreement to build the station was approved by the Parliament of Norway in mid 1966. Part of the reason for the Norwegian support was the opportunity of training Norwegians in pulse-code modulation and digital computing.

For NDRE the station was a chance to apply its latest minicomputer, the Simulation for Automatic Machinery. A major planning issue was the need for a minicomputer at the station. NDRE argued that it was capable of delivering such a system, but NTNF instead wanted to minimize risk by buying the PDP-8 from Digital Equipment Corporation in the United States. However, NDRE was awarded the contract, in part because of NTNF's obligation to support Norwegian technology and in part because NDRE agreed to purchase a suitable foreign computer if they could not manufacture one themselves. A new minicomputer, SAM-2, was built at NDRE and completed in April 1967, it was the first computer built in Europe and among the first three in the world which used integrated circuits. SAM-2 was so successful; the contract with ESRO resulted in TSS providing telemetry for ESRO-IA, ESRO-IB, ESRO-2B, HEOS-1, HEOS-2, TD-1A and ESRO-4, all of which had low-Earth orbits. The two telemetry stations used a large portion of the Norwegian space budget, but became platforms which allowed for development of technology.

Tromsø Satellite Station worked well in tandem with Andøya Rocket Range and became an international center for study of the auroral zone. The University of Tromsø was established in 1968 and started teaching in 1972; the same year, it took over the geophysical observatory and cosmic geophysics became one of the university's fields of excellence. The original contract with ESRO lasted until 1 July 1974, when their low-Earth orbit program terminated. NTNF proposed closing Tromsø Telemetry Station as the remaining customers did not provide sufficient revenue to keep operations viable. Norway declined to join the European Space Agency, which resulted in little hope in ESA choosing to cooperate with a Norwegian earth station. NTNF looked into outright selling the station to ESA, but the offer was turned down. Kongsfjord Telemetry Station was closed in 1974. In 1973 NTNF started planning to use the station for downloading from NASA's Landsat program. Sufficient funding from the government was secured in mid 1976, after a successful lobby operation which emphasized the possibility of environmental observation in Norway's territorial waters.

7.5 million Norwegian krone was granted for upgrades in 1977. Norway entered negotiations with the US, but soon ESA and NASA started discussions regarding two European telemetry stations for Landsat to serve all ESA membe

Neferneferuaten

Ankhkheperure-mery-Neferkheperure/ -mery-Waenre/ -mery-Aten Neferneferuaten was a name used to refer to either Meritaten or, more Nefertiti. The archaeological evidence relates to a woman who reigned as pharaoh toward the end of the Amarna Period during the Eighteenth Dynasty, her sex is confirmed by feminine traces found in the name and by the epithet Akhet-en-hyes, incorporated into one version of her second cartouche. She is to be distinguished from the king who used the name Ankhkheperure Smenkhkare-Djeser Kheperu, but without epithets appearing in either cartouche. If this individual is Nefertiti ruling as sole pharaoh, it has been theorized by Egyptologist and Archaeologist Dr. Zahi Hawass that her reign was marked by the fall of Amarna and relocation of the capital back to the traditional city of Thebes; as illustrated in a 2011 Metropolitan Museum of Art symposium on Horemheb, the general chronology of the late Eighteenth Dynasty is: There is no broad consensus as to the succession order of Smenkhkare and Neferneferuaten.

With little dated evidence to fix their reigns with any certainty, the order depends on how the evidence is interpreted. Many encyclopedic sources and atlases will show Smenkhkare succeeding Akhenaten on the basis of tradition dating back to 1845, some still conflate Smenkhkare with Neferneferuaten; the period from the 13th year of Akhenaten's reign to the ascension of Tutankhaten is murky. The reigns of Smenkhkare and Neferneferuaten were brief and left little monumental or inscriptional evidence to draw a clear picture of political events. Adding to this, Neferneferuaten shares her prenomen, or throne name, with Smenkhkare, her nomen with Nefertiti/Nefertiti-Neferneferuaten making identification difficult at times; the Egyptians themselves tried to hide the evidence of the kings reigning during the Amarna from us. Neferneferuaten's successor seems to have denied her a king's burial and in the reign of Horemheb, the entire Amarna period began to be regarded as anathema and the reigns of the Amarna period pharaohs from Akhenaten to Ay were expunged from history as these kings' total regnal years were assigned to Horemheb.

The result is that 3,300 years scholars would have to piece together events and resurrect the players bit by bit with the evidence sometimes limited to palimpsest. With the evidence so murky and equivocal, at one time or another, the name, sex and the existence of Neferneferuaten has been a matter of debate among Egyptologists; the lack of unique names continues to cause problems in books and papers written before the early 1980s: an object might be characterized as bearing the name of Smenkhkare, when if in fact, the name was "Ankhkheperure", it could be related to one of two people. Manetho was a priest in the time of the Ptolemies in the third century BC, his "Egyptian History" divided the rulers into dynasties which forms the basis of the modern system of dating Ancient Egypt. His work has been lost and is known only in fragmentary form from writers quoting his work; as a result of the suppression of the Amarna kings, Manetho is the sole ancient record available. Manetho's Epitome, a summary of his work, describes the late Eighteenth Dynasty succession as "Amenophis for 30 years 10 months", who seems to be Amenhotep III.

"his son Orus for 36 years 5 months", this is seen as a corruption of the name Horemheb with the entire Amarna period attributed to him, but others see Orus as Akhenaten. Next comes "his daughter Acencheres for 12 years 1 month her brother Rathotis for 9 years". Acencheres is Ankhkheperure according to Gabolde, with a transcription error assumed which converted 2 years, 1 month into the 12 years, 1 month reported by the addition of 10 years. Most agree. Rathotis is followed by "his son Acencheres for 12 years 5 months, his son Acencheres II for 12 years 3 months", which are inexplicable and demonstrate the limits to which Manetho may be relied upon. There are several items central to the slow unveiling regarding the existence and identity of Neferneferuaten; these continue to be key elements to various theories today. The name of King Ankheprure Smenkhkare-Djeserkheperu was known as far back as 1845 from the tomb of Meryre II. There, he and Meritaten, bearing the title Great Royal Wife, are shown rewarding the tomb's owner.

The names of the king had been recorded by Lepsius c. 1850. A different scene on a different wall depicts the famous Durbar scene, dated to regnal year 12. A calcite "globular vase" from the tomb of Tutankhamun bears the full double cartouche of Akhenaten alongside the full double cartouche of Smenkhkare, it is the only object to carry both names side by side. These can be taken to represent that the two were coregents, as was thought to be the case however, the scene in the tomb of Meryre is not dated and Akhenaten is neither depicted nor mentioned in it, it is not known with certainty when the tomb owner died or if he may have lived on to serve a new king. The jar seems to indicate a coregency, but may be a case of one king associating himself with a predecessor; the simple association of names is not always indicative of a coregency. As with many things of this period, the evidence is not conclusive. Indisputable images for Smenkhkare are rare. Aside from the tomb of Meryre II, the adjacent image showing an Amarna king and queen in a garden is attributed to him.

It is without inscription, but since they do not look like Tutankhamun nor his queen, they are assumed to be Smenkhkare an
