FROM THE FRONT A2 | Wednesday, May 9, 2012 | The Anderson News CITY Continued from Page A1 Photos by Ben Carlson High school art teacher Karen Lacefield poses for a photo with Congressman Ben Chandler and student Christina Wallace during last Friday’s ceremony at the high school. ART Continued from Page A1 backed by trees and shaded in several places with yellow pencil. She said she drew it during one of her focuses on “vacancy.” “I didn’t do a background,” she said. “The windows reflect that, because they are empty.” Lacefield, who received a bouquet of roses from Wallace’s mom, Tina, during the ceremony, said it’s exciting to see one of her students win the award. “It’s such a pick-meup for the kids,” she said. “It adds importance to art, and art is very important.” Lacefield said she is also proud of two other students recognized during Friday’s ceremony, during which Christa Watson was the Anderson County award for her work titled “Purple Cat,” and Matthew Hartley won the Best Drawing award for his work titled “66 Fairlane.” Lacefield, who has taught art in Anderson Michael and Tina Wallace are all smiles when their daughter, Christina, is congratulated by Congressman Ben Chandler last Friday morning at the high school. County for 32 years including a stint at Western, said the only other local student to win the award was Carrie Armstrong back in the 1980s. During the ceremony, Chandler congratulated all of the students who submitted art, and said he’s thrilled to have an Anderson County student win for the first time during his time in office. “I hope you’re all proud of this Anderson County achievement,” he said. “I know I’m proud of you all and thank you for competing.” Wallace said she’s proud of being selected, but thinks her future will be in photography. “It takes less patience than art,” she said, adding that she intends to attend Bluegrass Community and Technical College next fall in Lexington before enrolling at the University of Kentucky. Created in 1982, the Congressional Art Competition is an annual competition where the artwork of high school students is judged at the congressional district level. In addition to an overall district winner, a winner is chosen from each county and in each of seven categories: painting, drawing, col- lage, print, mixed media, computer generated art, and photography. The art from the overall winner of the competition is displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year. Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. The competition provides an opportunity for members of Congress to encourage and recognize the artistic talents of their young constituents. Students submit entries to their representative’s office, and panels of local artists in each district select the winning entries, which are then displayed for one year at the Capitol. Winners are recognized both in their district and at an annual Awards Ceremony in Washington, DC. Since it began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated. Comment at theandersonnews.com. salary increase, according to the 2011 CPI rate. The scale for employee salaries is set outside of the budgeting process, but the schedule is included in the city’s overall budget, which is reviewed and voted on by the city council. According to a March 2011 report by The Anderson News on the city’s salary schedule, city employees are classified by various pay grades ranging from 11 to 50. The lowest grade on the city’s authorized position list is 17. Pay at those positions range from $20,069 to $32,111. The highest pay grade currently Hume employed is 33, and includes City Clerk Robbie Hume, Police Chief Tommy Burris and Public Works Director Larry Hazlett. Their salary range at grade 33 is $43,809 to $70,094. A 2.96 percent salary increase, based on the current CPI, would raise salaries at the highest pay grade, starting at $45,106 to $72,169. Hume said the consumer price index has been as low as 0.1 percent to 4.08 percent in 2007. It remains to be seen, however, if city employees will also receive an increase according to this year’s cost of living index rate as the finance committee prepares next fiscal year’s budget. The city council unanimously increased its employees’ payroll by 1.5 percent in March 2011 for the 2011-2012 fiscal year, according to Anderson News reports. Hume said the city’s finance committee plans to meet later this week to finalize the 2012-2013 budget. The first reading for the city’s budget will be at the council’s May 14 meeting. The second reading will be held on June 11.

Anglin said she fired York on the spot after Anglin called police to administer a alcohol breath test, which York failed. York’s blood alcohol level was at .038, and told city police that she took several medications around 11 a.m. that morning. Anglin said she and her business partner plan to file child endangerment charges against York with the county attorney this week. “Our kids’ safety is very important to us,” Anglin said. “We took proper precautions in this matter.” Comment at theandersonnews.com.
