  • Academics outside the school year

    By State Representative Terry Mills

    Some of Kentucky’s most successful academic programs take place, oddly enough, when the school year is over.

    Several of these got their start in the 1980s, and they have since given thousands of our brightest middle and high school students a chance to come together in a college setting and learn in ways that often extend beyond the traditional classroom.

  • Overnight sensation

    I’m still in shock at the overnight popularity of this new phenomenon called Pokemon Go.

You can only see them if you play the game and have the app installed on your smartphone. Then players can battle each other with their Pokemon, train their Pokemon and so on.

    Many would agree that life is always full of surprises.

  • Small business disaster planning is almost nonexistent

    If you have watched the news for the past few months, you have seen reports of weather disasters every single day. Floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, pick one! What’s your poison?

    In this part of the country, we have the potential to be hit by any of these. While most of these news reports focus on the personal aspect and people’s personal lives thrown into chaos, disaster negatively impacts businesses too.

    No matter if it is flood, wind, or fire, if it shuts your business down, you may be out of business forever!
