  • Cyber security statistics, truly scary!

    I am a numbers guy and I love statistics. When clients would not believe my advice, I sent them to read the statistics. I do not make this stuff up.

    So, after writing several articles the past two years regarding the threats your business faces to Cybercrime and Cybertheft, I thought you might enjoy reading a few from a recent report by Barkly.

    2016 saw a huge growth in new malware entering cyber space. In just the third quarter of 2016, we saw 18 million new malware software attacks. And that is just the samples that were collected in the wild.

  • How Triglycerides affect your health

    Triglycerides are a type of fat that can be found in your blood. In fact, according to the American Heart Association, triglycerides are the most common type of fat in your body.

    Your body creates triglycerides when you eat more calories than you need to use at that time. This makes your fat cells store the triglycerides until you need energy between meals, at which point certain hormones release the triglycerides into your bloodstream.

  • Are we prepared for life after high school?

    What is expected from a high school senior as they make the transition from school to work or continuing their education?

  • So much more than a game

    Since our son, Isaac, started playing Rec League basketball he has treated it like a career. The only other child I have ever seen as serious about a sport is my brother who was bound and determined to play baseball for the Cleveland Indians.

    Isaac has had several coaches since he first started playing basketball for the Bardstown Rec Department’s Fifth Quarter youth basketball program. This year was the first time he represented New Haven and the first time a coach made a huge impact on him.

  • Legislative update from Senator Meredith

    Visits from advocacy groups, a ceremonial bill signing, and rallies in the Capitol Rotunda, along with the bipartisan passage of bills, marked a busy Week Four of the 2017 Legislative Session.

    We were excited to welcome the children of Kentucky National Guard members from across the state for the First Annual Kentucky Military Kids Day. It was an honor to host these families who have sacrificed so much to serve our state and our country.

  • Legislative update from Rep. Reed

    We are now more than half way through the 2017 Regular Session and work continues for the people of Kentucky. This week, the House passed measures to ensure student athlete safety, help our state’s veterans, and support our first responders.

  • A Senior’s Advice

    Over the past four years, I have had the privilege of being a student at LaRue County High School, but it wasn’t always easy.

    I have learned that even in the midst of privileges and emotional highs, there are always nuisances and emotional lows. My four years of high school have proven this theory time and time again. You must be prepared and very composed in order to endure the hardship and responsibility that comes along with being a successful student.

  • Connected and disconnected

    As a part of Leadership LaRue, I got to go visit the state capitol in Frankfort last Wednesday and Thursday.

    We all really enjoyed it and I think we all had a great time. Our newly elected Representative Brandon Reed and Senator Steve Meredith spent time with us. We got to see both the house and Senate in session as well as hear a case being brought before the state Supreme Court. We toured parts of the governor’s office and mansion. Our time was jam-packed but we got to see a lot about how our state government operates.
