Today's Opinions

  • Free software for you

    A few weeks ago, I talked about extending the life of your computer hardware. This week I thought I would give you a few free software applications to make you more productive and happier individuals.

    I wrote about the need to clean out files you no longer need. Many will not do this because it just takes too long. Along comes PC Decrapifier.

    The PC Decrapifier is a program designed to suggest and remove unwanted software. One excellent use is to clean off most of the annoying software, generally referred to as bloatware, that is typically shipped with new PCs.

  • Remember your finances while spring cleaning

    Many people have an annual spring cleaning routine which includes washing windows, cabinets and woodwork.  This year take time to also “clean-up” your financial records. 

    Sort through your financial paperwork, and identify old statements which can be shredded or thrown away. Remember, it is always a good idea to shred any paperwork that contains personal information, especially bank account, credit card or other financial information.

  • Give the gift of help

    More times than not, people assume community is simply a group of individuals in the same area. Community is so much more than just that. It is a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.

    It is important for a community of people to help each other because when you help someone, later on in life they will remember it when they see someone who needs help and hopefully return the favor.

  • Senator Steve Meredith’s legislative update - March 29, 2017

    Since this is the period of the Legislative Session when the Governor has his veto days and the Senate does not meet, I wanted to discuss the issue of making health care more accessible and more affordable for all Kentuckians. As the former CEO of a rural hospital, improving health care was a major factor that drove my decision to run for public office.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • So much more than a game

    Since our son, Isaac, started playing Rec League basketball he has treated it like a career. The only other child I have ever seen as serious about a sport is my brother who was bound and determined to play baseball for the Cleveland Indians.

    Isaac has had several coaches since he first started playing basketball for the Bardstown Rec Department’s Fifth Quarter youth basketball program. This year was the first time he represented New Haven and the first time a coach made a huge impact on him.
