  • 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: Thank you for support

    Dear Editor,

    I would like to thank Cindy Cruse, manager of Save A Lot, and an anonymous band parent for the donation of snacks and water for the Band of Hawks. It’s community support that glues our group together.

    Sincerely,

    Patty Ford

  • Letter to the editor - The eye opening problem of litter

    Dear editor,

    To cast blame without also accepting claim would be arrogance at its best.  Recently, I had the opportunity with a group of family members to go through some of the county roadways, retrieving litter that people had discarded as they traveled to and from.  Some were likely passing through, others leaving home, or perhaps returning home. 

  • Letter to the editor - Thank you for help, support of LaRue County Fairgounds Haunted House

    Dear editor,

    As president of the LaRue County Fair Board, I want to thank the follow businesses that supported the LaRue County Haunted Barn at the fairgrounds. We had a good turn out and a lot of people enjoyed it. We are looking forward to doing it again next year and making it bigger.

  • Turkey Quiz part two

    How much do you know about food safety and cooking turkey? This quiz came from a colleague in Ohio. Pick the best answer to each question.

    Your family loves stuffing/dressing that’s baked inside the turkey. You know that isn’t recommended, but you’re going to do it anyway. What’s the best way to proceed?

    a. Mix and prepare the stuffing just before you put into the turkey. Stuff it lightly just before it goes into the oven and use a thermometer to make sure it reaches 165 degrees before serving.

  • Finding stuff with Windows 10

    Perhaps one of the most frequent complaints I receive regarding Windows 10 is that, after the update, users can’t find their files – their stuff. Take heart, the files should be right where you left them.

    There have only been a few cases that I know of where users lost files and those were where the file or file space was corrupt at the time of the conversion.

    So where is your stuff? First step is to give Windows a little time to catalog all your files by location. Windows uses a feature called the Indexer.

  • Surprising amount of trash found at pick up

    Dear Editor,

    The purpose of this letter is to inform you that Parkway Baptist Church participated in the Trash for Cash program on Saturday, November 12.

    Eleven people supporting Parkway Baptist Church Local Missions came out to clean roadways in LaRue County. These people ranged in age from 8 to 71.

    Our teen participants commented that the most unusual items found were diapers. Yuck!

  • LETTER: Leave it cleaner than you found it

    Dear Editor,

    At the conclusion of every outdoor adventure during my childhood, my older brothers and I would hear our dad’s camp cleanup doctrine, “Leave it cleaner than we found it.”

    As an adult, I hear those words echo around my mind whenever I cleanup the trash in my yard before mowing, pack up spent shotgun shells after a dove hunt, or do one last walk through of a sandbar before getting back in my kayak on a river float. He, my dad, engrained in us the importance of stewarding well the earth God has given us.
