  • Pay down holiday debt as quickly as possible

    Even with the best intentions, it’s too common: People rack up debt during the holidays. If you have some holiday debt, chances are that you want to get rid of that debt as soon as possible.

    First, stop using your credit card to make more charges. But don’t close any longstanding accounts with a positive payment history as that can hurt your credit scores. You don’t want to put other areas of your finances at risk, so keep paying on any secured debt such as for a car or home or student loans.

  • Trust for Life promotes organ donation

    This time of year, most of us are busy buying gifts, making plans, and celebrating with family. Two years ago, Kenedy Maze and her family were just trying to make it through the holidays alive.

    Kenedy, of Fleming County was missing a lot. She missed her friends because she was not allowed to go to school due to the advancing Cystic Fibrosis disease taking over her lungs. She missed being able to run and play because she was now tethered to 6 liters of oxygen just to breathe. She missed her sister, Kaylee, who lost her fight against CF in 2007.
