  • Share money-saving tips, win a prize

    Are you saving money?
    Most people aren’t, thanks to the economy and the high cost of gasoline and food.
    But it’s something that households should consider, not only for retirement but to take care of those gremlins that seem to jump out and bite us whenever we think things are going good. (You know, the windstorm takes off the roof; the car needs a new battery; or the sewer backs up.)
    You do have an emergency fund … don’t you?
    If you have developed a method for saving money or cutting expenses, why not share it with others?

  • Short days, long nights, use your headlights

     The first day of winter is the shortest day of the year, meaning daylight is at its minimum. It’s also the season in which motorists find themselves driving more in the dark – and encountering others who are driving without headlights.

    The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and Kentucky State Police remind motorists to make themselves visible. Crashes often occur because drivers don’t see other vehicles.
