  • Small business start toward paperless office

    Small Business Owners are drowning in paper, literally. When I visit a small business, enter the owner’s office, I am struck by the piles of paper documents and reports littering the desk, tables, and the floor. Why is this a bad thing? Because with so much paper, the owner simply cannot find what they really need when they need it.

  • Festival season is in full swing

    By Terry Mills
    Kentucky State Representative

    If there is one theme binding the numerous festivals that take place across the commonwealth each year, it’s that if we raise it, grow it or use a lot of it, there’s almost certainly a community that celebrates it.

    Most of these festivals take place over a ten week period that begins in late August and runs through Halloween and food is often the focal point.  During that time, you can find events dedicated to apples, country ham, sorghum, bourbon, honey, and barbecue.

  • Keep Your Friends Close, Your Passwords Closer

    Sharing passwords is a bad idea between family and friends, but sharing passwords at the office can be absolutely catastrophic.

    For example, I performed a security audit some years ago for a large construction goods company where they suspected their head of technology was defrauding the company. A serious charge and their outside accountant brought me in to review the technology for anything their accounting forensic people had missed.

  • Reflecting on 9/11

    On Sunday morning, our nation will pause to remember and reflect upon the tragedy known primarily by its date: 9/11.

    Those of us old enough to remember that Tuesday in 2001 will never forget where we were and what we were doing when we heard the news.  It had the same impact as such other pivotal moments in history, from the attack on Pearl Harbor and President Kennedy’s assassination to Neil Armstrong’s walking on the moon.

  • Robbing from future generations

    That headline makes you think about politics, doesn’t it? Sorry to disappoint, it isn’t politics this time. Robbing future generations is referring to people who rob the rest of us and posterity of valuable information and history. These people literally tear the pages out of history, or from what I’ve seen, carefully cut around the picture and caption they choose. Even more brazen, they walk right out the door with the entire book.

  • Plan early for retirement

    We all want to get the most out of our retirement, but financially that cannot be possible if we don’t start planning for it early in our careers. While retirement may seem like an eternity away for you, it will come sooner than you think.

  • Just ask question - August 31, 2016

    Question:

    One concerned reader recently came in the office asking about how often the recently installed chimes go off at the LaRue County Courthouse. Instead of going off every half-hour, they are wondering if it can go off at noon and six p.m.

    Answer:

  • Hate taking control of election - Letter to the editor

    Dear editor,

    What have our country and LaRue County become that I can’t have a Hillary sign in my yard without someone spraying graffiti above her name? Hate has taken control of this election. I can’t understand how people think it’s ok to print something as vulgar as this in public where little children on school buses can see it or maybe some of your mothers on the way to church. I believe our county and country are better than this.

    Sincerely,

    Phinis Hundley
