  • Teaching patriotism and honor

    My wife Danielle and I spent last weekend in Washington D.C. visiting my brother-in-law Jared, who is working as an intern this summer for U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

    There is so much to see in Washington D.C. and we only had two full days, but we still managed to do and see a lot.

    We saw the White House, Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument and got a personal tour from Jared of the U.S. Capitol building. Out of everything we did, my two favorite things were touring the Newseum and Arlington National Cemetery.

  • Aging and muscle loss, how diet can help

    We’re all trying to age gracefully. Maybe you regularly use sunscreen, or have a commitment to exercise classes or daily walking, or try and consume eight glasses of water each day. But you may notice more sagging skin as you age. Food and Health Communications shared the following info about muscle loss as we age.

    Sarcopenia is the official medical term for gradual loss of muscle mass. Along with muscle mass comes loss of muscle function. Decreased mobility, reduced strength, and loss of physical function are all related to sarcopenia.

  • Leaving behind a legacy

    As many of you have already heard, Hodgenville Fire Chief Wally Sparks passed away on Wednesday, May 17 and his funeral was on Monday, May 22.

    A lot of people have shared their memories of Wally on social media sites. When someone has served in a community for almost three decades, a lot of memories have no doubt been made by many people.

    I came to know Wally really well after I started working at The LaRue County Herald News in June 2015. Actually, he was the first person I talked to on the first day of my job.

  • Remembering the meaning of Memorial Day

    While Memorial Day weekend is a wonderful time for gathering with family and friends for picnics, pool parties, and parades, I write to you with the annual reminder not to forget the true meaning of the event. Memorial Day is a time to remember the brave men and women who have put everything on the line so we may live in freedom in the greatest nation in the world.

  • Kids must be tech enabled

    My wife and I have four grown children and fourteen grandchildren, yes fourteen, ranging from a sophomore in college to 4 months. All our grandkids are tech enabled, but perhaps much differently so than you and I, or their parents were.

    For the grandkids, technology is just a part of life. Texting or Snapchatting a friend is little different than my generation picking up a phone and calling someone, or listening to an AM/FM radio. Oh, how our parents thought we were on the road to ruin.

  • The importance of play time

    As the school year has ended and nicer weather is here, it is time to get your children outside to play.  There are many advantages for children engaging in outside play, including reducing their screen time. All winter they have spent their free time connected to a screen —TVs, smartphones, video games, notebooks, etc. This is a habit that may have long term results.
