Today's Opinions

  • Kids must be tech enabled

    My wife and I have four grown children and fourteen grandchildren, yes fourteen, ranging from a sophomore in college to 4 months. All our grandkids are tech enabled, but perhaps much differently so than you and I, or their parents were.

    For the grandkids, technology is just a part of life. Texting or Snapchatting a friend is little different than my generation picking up a phone and calling someone, or listening to an AM/FM radio. Oh, how our parents thought we were on the road to ruin.

  • The importance of play time

    As the school year has ended and nicer weather is here, it is time to get your children outside to play.  There are many advantages for children engaging in outside play, including reducing their screen time. All winter they have spent their free time connected to a screen —TVs, smartphones, video games, notebooks, etc. This is a habit that may have long term results. 

  • Superstitious Cleaning

    Stevie Wonder sings about being Superstitious. It’s a great song with an awesome beat and rhythm that keeps you working at a quick steady pace. The song, and cleaning make me think about Superstitions.

    I’m not superstitious, I’m really not; however I find myself doing these peculiar things that really superstitious people do.

    “They aren’t calling for rain this weekend… KNOCK ON WOOD” or when someone says the same exact thing I say at the same time I find myself, at least thinking, “JINX!”

  • Is someone tracking your browser?

    For those of you who actively use your browser thinking that you are secure because you use anonymous sites or anonymous browsing, where your history is erased when you exit, be ready for the new world.

    Last November 2016, it was disclosed that the FBI operated a child porn site using what is called an anonymous Tor (think dark web, untraceable – used to be) network called Playpen for almost two weeks in 2015.

  • Spring Cleaning, Caregiving

    We feel more energized by the longer days and warmer temperatures of spring. UK Eldercare reminds us now may be a good time to consider a spring cleaning with your loved one in their home.

    It may provide valuable insight into how your loved one is managing as they age. It also provides a chance to improve the safety of your loved one’s home; increase the ease of their living condition by reorganizing and replacing worn out items; and evaluate the quality of your loved one’s life and assess if additional help may be needed.

  • Leading up to marriage

    I am now a married man.

    I married the love of my life, Danielle Sexton, on April 22. Despite the rain, the wedding was everything that we both dreamed of it being.

    We decided to do a common ritual that couples often do before they say “I do.” We didn’t see or talk to each other on our wedding day before the ceremony, but we wrote each other a letter. We had decided to write it in a way to where our children could read it years later and know what their parents were thinking before they said their vows.

  • Virtual machines become more vulnerable

    Back in September 2015, I wrote an article “Virtual Machines – The Trend of the Future.” This article holds as true today as it did then, but some things have changed.

  • The bigger picture

    Last week, it was an honor to be invited and to attend the Campbellsville University media appreciation luncheon.

    Print and broadcast media from around the state were in attendance for the event that took on a global traveling theme around the adventures of the guest speaker, Pulitzer Prize winning photographer Bill Luster. I sat in awe listening to him recant his journeys and seeing the images that could move mountains, and I found myself wondering just how I got here and what difference am I making in this world.
