Today's Opinions

  • A new Network concept, the Wifi Mesh

    There is a lot of recent interest in Google’s new Google Home and Google Wi-Fi, and updates to Google’s OnHub routers that will be able to work together and create a Mesh Network in your house or place of business. The idea of a mesh network is not new, but with Google’s introduction, they have legitimized the concept.

  • Feed the birds
  • What we're not talking about

    This editorial is based on the views of the LaRue County Herald News editorial board.

    The board consist of Allison Shepherd, Publisher; Doug Ponder, Editor; and Vanessa Hurst, Reporter.

    With the recent developments in a case that involved students of our local high school and said Principal at the time, Stephen Kyle Goodlett, we are stopping to take a deeper look at the underlying problem occurring right here in our own community.

  • What is a Digital Executor?

    What happens to your Digital property after your death? This subject recently jumped out at me because I lost two close friends over the past few months.

    Both deaths were rather sudden and the individuals Facebook account was the last thing on their love one’s minds. However, as I continued to view posts and memories from their Facebook profile, I began to wonder when, if ever, the account would be removed.

  • Prepare for the New Year

    Another year is over and the New Year begins. Wait, is it really January 11, 2017 already. Well many would say, this month’s half over already.

    So it goes in most of our lives. We start off with great expectations of the year, the month, the week, or even a given day, only to realize, it’s almost over and I haven’t even got started yet.

  • New Years Resolution Number Two

    Last week, we talked about your Digital New Year’s Resolution Number 1, and this week we are going to continue with your second digital resolution, cleaning up your desktop.

    Your computer scares me. Really! It scares me. I have people call me to help them with their computer because it ate all their files, they can’t find anything!

  • Check your bills for mystery phone charges

    Cramming happens when a company adds a charge to your phone bill for a service you didn’t order or use. This may be a charge for services like trivia, ringtones, daily horoscopes or love tips to your bill that you didn’t agree to or use.

    The most common dollar amount for a cramming charge is $9.99, a relatively small amount which is easy to overlook. Some charges sound like larger fees you do owe, making it tough to pick out the phony charges, especially if your mobile phone bill varies month to month.
