  • Login required for Kentucky Mesonet page

    If you’re accustomed to checking local weather via the Kentucky Mesonet, you may have noticed a change to the website.

    The site, created by the Kentucky Climate Center at Western Kentucky University, provides current weather data and climatological observations as a service to people in communities throughout Kentucky.

    The website now requires a login and password be created “to better understand and serve the needs of our users,” according to the page.

  • Are your drink choices making you gain weight?

    Most of us realize the importance of keeping sugars and fats to a minimum in our diets, but often we only apply that to the foods we eat. The types of drinks we are consuming could be adding empty calories and causing us to gain extra pounds. Consider this: a medium full-fat mocha adds 400 calories to your diet while a 20-ounce soda, on average, contains 250 calories and a fruit drink adds 230 calories. Many times, these are extra calories we haven’t accounted for and they could easily push us over our daily calorie limit and cause us to gain weight.
