  • Using your GL to find fraud

    A good portion of my career has been spent working with businesses to help identify financial fraud. My area of expertise was usually around technology and automated financial systems.

    In the case of fraud, the GL is awaiting you to reveal the perpetrator. It can tell stories of fraud, manipulation and betrayal. Unfortunately, few people know how to read the signs.

  • Lost in LaRue

    Iwas headed toward Howardstown to get a photo of St. Ann’s Church for our Discover LaRue County publication. It was a pretty day, the sun was shining and the temperature was warming up. As I got closer to Howardstown and began descending into the knobs, the temperature began to drop and the rocks beside the road still had icicles, shielded from the sun and still clinging to their craggy ledges refusing to give in to the rising temperature.
