  • COLUMN: Spring cleaning burns calories

     Many of us would love to work more physical activity into our schedules but between responsibilities at work and home, it can be hard to squeeze it in. The 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week most health and wellness experts recommend may seem impossible. But daily physical activity is the biggest tip given recently by a representative from the Alzheimer’s Association to help our brains stay in optimum working order.

  • Bardstown museum loses founder

    This will be the first year that the Bardstown Civil War Museum and its corresponding venues will be operating without the help of Rita Herrmann.

    Herrmann, the long-time curator and co-founder of the museum, passed away last year at the age of 86.

    “Rita was a character,” said current manager Kenny Johnson. “She ran this place seven days a week, and she was in her 80s.”

    Johnson said Herrmann had seen the museum come to life years ago, piece-by-piece.

  • COLUMN: Children: Setting limits, offering praise

     All parents want their children to grow up to be responsible, self-sufficient adults, but the teenage years can be rocky for parents and children. It’s during this time that children often test parents’ limits and start requesting things like cell phones, later curfews and less adult supervision. This is also the time when many parents have to decide where they stand on many issues, financially and morally, and learn how to graciously and responsibly let go.

  • COLUMN: Trash collection, requirements and options

     LaRue County operates under the “Universal Collection Standard.” What this means is that, the County provides trash service to its residents in the form of a franchise hauler.

    The current hauler for unincorporated areas (outside Hodgenville City limits) is Waste Transport Service, and their phone number is 270-234-9278. Trash service is not mandatory, (but there are stipulations, see below) and WTS bills its customers quarterly.

  • COLUMN: Get your clean on

    Spring is just around the corner, and it’s time to clean up, clean out and organize.

    While you do, here are a few reminders. Commonwealth Cleanup week is March 22-29, and I encourage folks to get out and clean their yards of litter along the roadway, and to email me and let me know you did it. Include your name, address, and how many bags you collect. You can even help out an elderly neighbor, or a farmer along his fence line. My email is jillgray@laruecounty.org.
