  • Net-etiquette, surviving in the digital age

    As a business professional, your business life-blood may depend on email, texting, and quality communications. I have been using email since its inception at DARPA and I have seen the worst and the best of practices. Unfortunately, today we experience more worst than best of practices.

    First, consider that email is more like sending a letter. If you do not know what a letter is, please put this down and ask your mother. And texting is more like a short phone call. Do not confuse the two.

  • Why the Early Years Matter

    The Governor’s Office of Early Childhood wants to make sure families are aware how important the first years are in a child’s development. Ninety percent of brain development happens in the first five years. A child’s vocabulary as early as age three can predict third grade reading achievement.

  • Teen Dating Violence

    For many people, the month of February brings thoughts of romance and love in relationships. Sadly, some relationships that begin with the hope of love become abusive and violent over time. For teens in particular, who are still developing emotionally and are heavily influenced by experiences in their relationships, dating violence can have severe consequences and cause lifelong negative health effects.

  • Automotive career opportunities growing across region, state

    By Kim Huston

    The automotive industry has not only completed its recovery from the Great Recession, but also broke light vehicle sales records in 2015. With this growth, communities in the Lincoln Trail region and across the Commonwealth are positioned to realize even greater opportunities.

    Our region has played a significant role in Kentucky’s automotive industry for decades. Most of the eight counties of our region are home to an automotive supplier and, in recent years, we’ve welcomed a number of new companies and celebrated multiple expansions.

  • Are you ready for an Apple watch?

    Did you know that Apple invented the watch? Neither did I, but it is certainly true that they improved and expanded on the concept.

    Apple has three classes of the Apple Watch. Please note that Apple does not refer to its product as the iWatch, it’s just that everyone else does!

    The inside of all versions of the Apple Watch are identical, including the software and the Watch OS. The differences are entirely in the materials used for the Watch case and bands.

  • Adult Education making strides in Lincoln Trail

    By Diane Kelley

    As an adult education instructor, I have seen firsthand how education leads to a higher standard of living and an increased quality of life.

    With that in mind, the Lincoln Trail region has reasons to take pride in our adult education programs and the students who access these programs.

  • Promote sportsmanship over winning

    Most adults know winning a competition isn’t a prerequisite for future success in life. Sometimes, we can get caught up in the moment and put too much pressure on our children to win at whatever they do, whether it’s at school or on the athletic field. At no time of the year is this more true in Kentucky than during basketball season.

  • Thirty lessons, thirty years

    I’m turning 30 next week! Yikes, right? Wrong. Thirty is young and I welcome it as well as every other year that I am blessed enough to celebrate on this annual occasion. I’ve learned a lot over these thirty years. I thought it would be fun to compile a list of thirty things I’ve learned in thirty years. These are just the lessons that stick out in my mind at this time; not everything I’ve learned, Lord knows there isn’t enough space here for all of that, I’ve done a lot of learning.

    Living in small community in LaRue County has its ups and downs as a teenager. Sometimes we think that this town is boring because there aren’t a lot of restaurants or attractions. However, we live in one of the more unique places because we have one of the greatest presidents that lived where we live!
