  • A rainy day lament

    Rain. It’s a strange thing. It is certainly needed to grow the crops that keep us fed. It’s needed to keep the lakes and rivers supplied with the water that we need to drink. But sometimes there’s more rain than one area needs like the folks in Louisiana. We’ve had our share of floods too, thank goodness we’re not in that bad of shape!

  • How Parents can develop good physical skills in their children

    The Kentucky Governor’s Office of Early Childhood wants parents to know the importance of developing fine and gross motor skills in children so they are ready for school or life tasks. From the first time your baby holds up his head, to the first time she takes her first step, each new skill becomes a celebrated milestone. These skills will allow your child to do common kindergarten work like cutting with scissors or learning to write.

  • How to Reset Your Windows Password

    I have been called into a number of businesses where the computer technician had left and no one knew the Windows password when it came time to update a program. This is a scary, and potentially costly experience for a small business owner. I suggest you follow these procedures before that crisis occurs, and make sure you create a password-reset disk to have on hand.

  • Letter to the editor - Don’t let presidential race overshadow other races on the ballot

    Dear Editor,

    We’d like to encourage your readers to get to know the candidates on the ballot before they vote this election. Presidential races sometimes overshadow down ballot races and this year is no exception. Please know there are other very important offices on the ballot including U.S. Senate, Congress, State Senate, all 100 seats of the Kentucky State House and city council races.

  • Letter to the editor - Concerned over local sales tax

    Dear Editor,

    On November 8, voters in Kentucky will elect General Assembly members. This is important because these state legislators will once again consider the local option sales tax. This constitutional amendment would allow local governments to add a new local one percent sales tax in addition to the 6 percent state sales tax already paid on taxable goods. If this happens it will hurt consumers, businesses, and Kentucky’s economy.
