Advocate-Messenger The 75¢ | Danville, Kentucky FYI Three injured in crash on Danville bypass Three people were injured in a four-vehicle accident Sunday on the Danville bypass, police said. Four people were driving in the eastbound lanes of the bypass at the Skywatch Drive intersection about 5:15 p.m. Sunday. Tabitha Schmiers, 29, of Stanford, hit the rear of a 2008 Ford F-150 pickup truck with her 2002 Dodge Ram truck, police said. The driver of the F-150 was Ernest Arnett Jr., 74, of Harrodsburg, according to police. Schmiers also hit the rear of a 2011 Dodge Ram operated by John Havens, 44, of Harrodsburg. When Schmiers struck Arnett’s truck, the vehicle was pushed forward and collided with a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by Ronda Davis, 46, of Junction City, police said. Arnett, Schmiers and her passenger Dedra Shipp, 23, of Stanford, were all transported to Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center for treatment of injuries. Boyle County EMS and Danville Fire Department personnel helped police at the scene. Danville police officer Christopher Wentz is investigating the cause of the accident. Monday, April 16, 2012 H’burg plant helped launch iPhone By CHRIS OTTS The Courier-Journal HARRODSBURG (AP) — One of the most innovative gadgets in a generation — the Apple iPhone — would not have hit the market in 2007 were it not for a 60-year-old glass factory in this central Kentucky town of 8,300 people. The plant — owned by the New York-based conglomerate Corning Inc. — has been a longtime fixture in Harrodsburg. But its pivotal role in enabling the worldwide sale of millions of iPhones was not widely known until October, when a biography of Steve Jobs, the late Apple co-founder and chief executive, was published. In fact, most people in Harrodsburg still aren’t aware of it, according to locals such as Jerry Sampson, who has owned a book and antiques shop in the heart of town for 20 years. “I think it’s a pretty cool feature that, in little Harrodsburg, Ky., that glass is made,” he said. “All over the world, this iPhone, it’s revolutionary. It changed everything.” In his best-selling biography, journalist Walter Isaacson tells how Jobs challenged Corning to begin churning out a durable, scratch-resistant material called Gorilla Glass for the iPhone’s screen. Apple originally had planned for the iPhone to have a plastic screen, Isaacson wrote. But Jobs decided the device would “feel much more elegant and substantive if the screens were glass.” According to a separate account in The New York Times, Jobs resolved to See CORNING, on A6 David Brock/ Gov.

TS US AM Due to continued state budget cuts and declining availability of federal funding, the Danville school system expects to cut about three positions at the secondary school level next school year. e councils at Bate Middle School and Danville High School will decide which positions to cut, said Superintendent Carmen Coleman. Coleman emphasized that no departments such as art or music will be cut and that likely the classroom sizes will be slightly increased to make up for a $120,000 cut in state funding. e reduction in revenue places Danville back at 2007-08 funding levels. Also, the state cut $112,000 from the district’s budget in the middle of this school year. Because Danville educators have always budgeted conservatively, no programs were impacted and the school system simply absorbed the cost, according to Coleman. “We’re trying to be very careful,” Coleman said. “We don’t want to do anything that impacts the students. We like giving intensive individual attention as part of our education.” But the General Assembly is putting more of a burden on local school districts to become more self-sufficient, See DANVILLE, on A6 Good Neighborhood 103 Kendall Drive McDowell Estates • Danville $195,000 HELM & REYNOLDS Realty & Auction Co., Inc.
