  • The power of words
  • Dealing with a child's challenging behavior during the holidays

     While we like to think of the holidays as a picture-perfect Norman Rockwell painting, they tend to be the exact opposite and full of stress for everyone around. Think about it—from buying presents and extra food to visiting relatives you hardly ever see, stress can come from all sides during this time of the year. As a result, you may find your child acting out more than normal.

    Here are some suggestions to help you and your children better navigate holiday stress.

  • The new Amazon Dot 2.0 is here at last
  • Diabetes and multivitamins

    Diabetes is a condition that affects the way the body uses energy. More than 29 million Americans are affected by diabetes and close to one-quarter of these individuals do not know they have the disease.

    An additional 86.1 million Americans have prediabetes. Managing your diabetes every day is hard work but it is worth it to lessen major health problems when you get older.  Know your blood sugar (blood glucose) numbers such as your A1C. This is a blood test that measures your average blood sugar level over the past three months.

  • Growing numbers

    It may not have generated much publicity, but Kentucky’s economy hit a high-water mark in October, when our civilian labor force saw its biggest one-month gain in at least 40 years.  It grew by almost 15,000 during those 31 days, putting us just shy of two million people who are either working or actively looking for a job.

  • Letter to the editor - The eye opening problem of litter

    Dear editor,

    To cast blame without also accepting claim would be arrogance at its best.  Recently, I had the opportunity with a group of family members to go through some of the county roadways, retrieving litter that people had discarded as they traveled to and from.  Some were likely passing through, others leaving home, or perhaps returning home. 

  • Letter to the editor - Thank you for help, support of LaRue County Fairgounds Haunted House
