  • LETTER: Public pensions a crucial issue facing our Commonwealth

    Dear Editor,

    There has been a great deal of conversation in the press lately about public pensions and there should be. It is a critical issue facing our Commonwealth, possibly the most critical issue for at least the next decade.

  • The right tech gear for kids

    I constantly hear parents say their kids are more tech savvy than they are. Sometimes it almost sounds like a badge of honor. Not good. I have no doubt that you have been following stories such as:

  • 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.

  • LETTER: All graduates should participate

    Dear Editor,

    As a graduate of LaRue County Schools, the parent of two graduates and a parent by choice of another, a former member of the LaRue County Board of Education, and a lifelong supporter of our schools, I am sadly disappointed that two recent graduates were not allowed to walk with the Class of 2017 to receive their diplomas.

  • 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.

  • 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.
