  • Walking challenge

    Hippocrates said, “Walking is man’s best medicine”. There is new evidence of body and brain benefits from walking. Even a little activity helps, but more is better. With physical activity, the more you do, the more you benefit.

  • Reports of good economic news

    As Kentucky House leaders were putting the final touches on a proposed two-year state budget last week, legislators received not one but two reports of good economic news.

    Last Thursday, state officials said that revenues have grown 4.3 percent so far this current fiscal year, all but guaranteeing a surplus with less than four months to go.  The sales tax, one of the state’s major revenue sources and a strong indicator of consumer confidence, has now increased in 24 of the past 26 months.

    By Lisa Williams

    Just over three years ago, husband and wife team Bob Purcell and Rebecca Wheeling answered a calling to turn a bright idea into a business.

    As independent insurance adjusters, the couple knew having someone work the phones and maps to schedule and route their appointments made their work more efficient. More importantly, those services enabled them to help people in crises get their lives back faster.

  • Frankfort Focus - Consumer protection key in general assembly

    When it comes to the public’s safety and well-being, consumer protection may not always grab the headlines, but that doesn’t diminish its importance.
