  • Automotive career opportunities growing across region, state

    By Kim Huston

    The automotive industry has not only completed its recovery from the Great Recession, but also broke light vehicle sales records in 2015. With this growth, communities in the Lincoln Trail region and across the Commonwealth are positioned to realize even greater opportunities.

    Our region has played a significant role in Kentucky’s automotive industry for decades. Most of the eight counties of our region are home to an automotive supplier and, in recent years, we’ve welcomed a number of new companies and celebrated multiple expansions.

  • Net-etiquette, surviving in the digital age

    As a business professional, your business life-blood may depend on email, texting, and quality communications. I have been using email since its inception at DARPA and I have seen the worst and the best of practices. Unfortunately, today we experience more worst than best of practices.

    First, consider that email is more like sending a letter. If you do not know what a letter is, please put this down and ask your mother. And texting is more like a short phone call. Do not confuse the two.

  • Mutual Akwardness

    It’s happened to almost everyone, that moment where you feel completely awkward almost embarrassed, because of a silly social mishap. I know it happens to me all the time.

  • Tax season is here... Ugh

    It’s that time of the year again as all of us faithful United States citizens file our tax returns to the IRS.

    This is one of the most painful things I feel I have to do as a U.S. citizen. To me it’s almost as agonizing as the kidney stones I had to pass in high school.

  • Adult Education making strides in Lincoln Trail

    By Diane Kelley

    As an adult education instructor, I have seen firsthand how education leads to a higher standard of living and an increased quality of life.

    With that in mind, the Lincoln Trail region has reasons to take pride in our adult education programs and the students who access these programs.

  • Are you ready for an Apple watch?

    Did you know that Apple invented the watch? Neither did I, but it is certainly true that they improved and expanded on the concept.

    Apple has three classes of the Apple Watch. Please note that Apple does not refer to its product as the iWatch, it’s just that everyone else does!

    The inside of all versions of the Apple Watch are identical, including the software and the Watch OS. The differences are entirely in the materials used for the Watch case and bands.

  • Promote sportsmanship over winning

    Most adults know winning a competition isn’t a prerequisite for future success in life. Sometimes, we can get caught up in the moment and put too much pressure on our children to win at whatever they do, whether it’s at school or on the athletic field. At no time of the year is this more true in Kentucky than during basketball season.

  • Thirty lessons, thirty years

    I’m turning 30 next week! Yikes, right? Wrong. Thirty is young and I welcome it as well as every other year that I am blessed enough to celebrate on this annual occasion. I’ve learned a lot over these thirty years. I thought it would be fun to compile a list of thirty things I’ve learned in thirty years. These are just the lessons that stick out in my mind at this time; not everything I’ve learned, Lord knows there isn’t enough space here for all of that, I’ve done a lot of learning.
