    BARR asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. BARR. Mr. Speaker, today I wish to honor three precious lives lost in the tornado which devastated Menifee County, Kentucky, one year ago this Saturday.



    Beverly Bowman was a magnet to children, according to newspaper accounts. Friends called her the backbone of the Tarr Ridge Union Church.

    Anita Smith adored animals. Reports said she owned at least four horses, along with goats, dogs, and a mule.

    And Vershal Brown was a remarkable man, recalls Menifee County Sheriff Rodney Coffee: ``Day or night, if you called him, he could help you. He would be there.'' Mr. Speaker, the people of Menifee County have shown amazing faith and determination in rebuilding their lives and their community. This weekend, we will celebrate together how far they have come, and we will join hands and remember.
