Today's Opinions

  • Where we came from

    That headline got you didn’t it? Thinking birds/bees right? No. Maybe more philosophical or perhaps scientific? Nope, none of the above. History has always been one of my favorite subjects. One of the most fascinating parts of history, to me, is thinking about all the people who came together and, as a result, here I am.

  • Everyday life can kill you, but don’t let it

    Last week was a big deal for me as I turned 28-years-old on Thursday, March 23.

    It’s funny how birthdays are perceived when you get older. When I was growing up, I looked at my birthday as another year of getting closer to becoming a teenager, being old enough to drive or some other milestone many of us had when we were growing up.

    After turning 28 last Thursday, I found myself so busy with everyday life that I kept forgetting about my birthday in the weeks and days leading up to it.

  • How Triglycerides affect your health

    Triglycerides are a type of fat that can be found in your blood. In fact, according to the American Heart Association, triglycerides are the most common type of fat in your body.

    Your body creates triglycerides when you eat more calories than you need to use at that time. This makes your fat cells store the triglycerides until you need energy between meals, at which point certain hormones release the triglycerides into your bloodstream.

  • Cyber security statistics, truly scary!

    I am a numbers guy and I love statistics. When clients would not believe my advice, I sent them to read the statistics. I do not make this stuff up.

    So, after writing several articles the past two years regarding the threats your business faces to Cybercrime and Cybertheft, I thought you might enjoy reading a few from a recent report by Barkly.

    2016 saw a huge growth in new malware entering cyber space. In just the third quarter of 2016, we saw 18 million new malware software attacks. And that is just the samples that were collected in the wild.

  • Letter to the editor - Expo Thank You

    Dear Editor,

    The staff of the LaRue County Extension Service and County Extension Council leaders would like to thank everyone who came out and supported our 2017 Extension Expo. We especially thank the LaRue County Schools for allowing use of the LCHS gym facility and Jailer, Johnny Cottrill and his staff for providing help with set up and take down of the Expo booths. We appreciate the community participation which sustains this annual event.

  • LETTER: Unexpected lessons

    Dear Editor,

    On February 24, the LaRue County High School baseball team was given a special opportunity. We were able to perform a community service, which would also serve as a fundraiser for our program.

    Knowing that the Trash for Cash program would be a nice thing to do for our community and make a little money for the baseball program is what attracted us so much when it was brought to the team’s attention by a parent. The teambuilding and the sense of servanthood that was achieved by our young men was an added bonus.

    What is expected from a high school senior as they make the transition from school to work or continuing their education?

  • Devices from CES I would buy in 2017

    The 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) was held in Las Vegas in January and hundreds of vendors came to show off their wares and attempt to convince resellers that you, the consumer, could not live without their products.

    CES is the geek show of the year, and if you have an interest in technology, I strongly suggest you do some Googling and check out what the show had to offer this year.
