Spring cleaning season has arrived and for many Kentuckians it means burning unwanted debris. The Kentucky Division for Air Quality reminds you to learn before you burn. Illegal burning could result in fines of up to $25,000 per day per violation.
Obtaining, treating, and distributing water is an energy-intensive process. On average, Kentuckians use 100 to 150 gallons of water per person per day. By decreasing the amount of water we use, we can also save energy, and reduce utility costs. The following tips are simple, inexpensive ways to save water in the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room.
• Scrape, rather than rinse, dishes before putting into the dishwasher.
One of the fondest memories of my childhood is that of my entire family sitting down almost every evening for a nice meal together. It was a great opportunity for us to talk about the day's events and stay connected with each other. For most families these days it is hard to make time for family meals for many reasons. But the benefits of sharing a meal together are tremendous for both parents and kids.

Many of us are familiar with the “sell-by,” “best if used by” and “use-by” dates that appear on food products. These dates are expiration dates that provide information on the quality of products purchased. Knowing what these dates mean help consumers make better decisions on product quality, what to keep, what to toss and when.
The “sell-By” date lets the store know how long they should display a product for sale. It is best to buy food products before this date expires.
