In 1985, just four years after he was licensed in Kentucky, the licensure board investigated a complaint he had prescribed painkillers in a way that he knew, or should have known, was excessive and likely to be abused, according to the board’s order. His license was put on probation for two years. In December 1989, the board found evidence he had over-used drugs with a pa- *EPA highway estimate. Morris offered a taste of unaged bourbon.

Who wouldn’t be?” Earlier in the day at a pretrial hearing, U.S. Justice Department attorney Larry Schneider said the government has “definitive proof” linking Hammadi to insurgent attacks after the American-led invasion of Iraq. “He was either part of alQaida in Iraq or a group affiliated with al-Qaida in Iraq,” Schneider said during a pretrial conference. After the plea hearing, U.S. Attorney David J. Hale noted that Hammadi pleaded guilty to lying about his involvement with insurgent and terrorist groups. 18 To Choose From!

To celebrate, Woodford Reserve will have a one-of-a-kind “Bourbon Feast” for 200 people on Saturday, prepared by Chef Ouita Michel featuring food from surrounding farms. Beginning Monday, for four days, Woodford Reserve also will offer a “history hike” to the original Pepper family homestead, which started as a log cabin, as well as the Grassy Springs Branch of Glen’s Creek, where remnants of what might have been the original still were found. “We’re going to see some stuff nobody’s seen in a long time,” said Chris Morris, master distiller for Woodford Reserve. Much of the property is off the usual distillery tour route and requires sturdy shoes. Elijah and Sarah Pepper moved to the area in 1797. Their first distillery was in downtown Versailles, at the big spring behind what is now the Versailles courthouse, Morris said. Eventually the family, with seven children and 12 slaves, bought 200 acres and settled near the Grassy Springs Branch of Glen’s Creek in 1812 in a log cabin that still stands today.

In 1878, the Pepper family sold the distillery to Leopold Labrot and James Graham, who operated it until 1941 (except during Prohibition), when Brown-Forman acquired the property. The popularity of bourbon waned in the 1960s, and Brown-Forman closed the distillery and sold it to a local farmer in 1971. With craft bourbon making a comeback, Brown-Forman repurchased it in 1993, and Woodford Reserve was introduced in 1996. spring, Elijah Pepper began making whiskey, Morris said. Originally, it was produced seasonally, mostly for family, friends and neighbors, he said. Over time the process was refined and became more like modern bourbon.

The U.S. State Department estimated that al-Qaida in Iraq had about 1,000 core members in 2005 and about 10,000 affiliated fighters at its peak in 2010. Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian Calhoun spelled out nine charges against Hammadi involving attempts to ship sniper rifles, cases of C4 explosives, rocket propelled grenades, hand grenades, machine guns and wads of cash to al-Qaida in Iraq from January 2011 until the sting operation closed in May 2011. Calhoun also laid out count 10, which involved an attempt to send Stinger missile systems and counts 11 and 12, which charged Hammadi with lying about prior associations with terrorist organizations on a form to enter the United States as a refugee and another form seeking permanent legal resident status. After each charge, the green jumpsuit- clad and shackled Hammadi answered “yes” and “I do plead guilty.” A government informant identified only as “Ammar” first started working with Alwan in late 2010. Hammadi admitted to joining the conspiracy in January 2011. Hale said all of the weapons involved were inactive and couldn’t have been used. Hale added that none made it overseas. Hale credited the efforts of the Joint Terrorism Task Force, a group that includes the FBI and Bowling Green Police Department, with running the sting and making the case winnable. “In short, the system that was put in place post-9/11 worked,” Hale said. “There’s no place to hide. They chose Bowling Green, Ky., ... that’s no different than choosing a major American city.” tient. The board later put his license on probation for five years, told him to keep better records and required him to take training on prescribing drugs, according to its latest order. In May 2003, the board received another complaint that Gibson was prescribing controlled substances to suspected drug abusers without doing adequate exams. A consultant said it appeared Gibson had over-prescribed drugs, and that his practices were a danger to patients and the public. The licensure board suspended his license. Gibson and the board later settled the case with an order limiting his prescribing au- thority and requiring him to take more training and pay a $5,000 fine, according to its latest order. His prescribing authority was later reinstated, and a consultant said in October 2008 that he was doing an adequate job, and appeared to be conservative in his prescribing practices. However, the board panel said in its latest emergency order that “the numerous efforts to rehabilitate and reeducate (Gibson) as to the acceptable and prevailing medical practices related to the prescribing of controlled substances have been unsuccessful.” Bill Estep: (606) 678-4655.
