  • Head Lice, itchy topic for all

    Head lice infest 10-12 million people (most commonly children three to twelve years of age) each year in the United States. Head lice are primarily transferred from person to person by direct head-to-head contact or by several people using the same combs, brushes, hats, costumes, head-phones, athletic equipment, towels, or bedding.

  • How to enable hidden Windows 10 administrator account

    This week, I want to help users understand the differences between the Administrator User account versus Administrative Rights, and why knowing the difference is important.

    This article may seem pretty technical for some of you, so please share it with your IT person, and ask them to verify that your computers are setup correctly. Many technicians and computer users are not aware that Microsoft changed how the user Administrator works with Windows 7,8, and 10.

  • Letter to the editor -Salute to First Responders

    Dear Editor,

    On some anniversaries we celebrate; on others we reflect.

    The 15th anniversary of the attack on America and New York’s World Trade Center is one of the times for reflection. There is truly nothing to celebrate in the extraordinary tragedy of 9/11.

    As much as I would like to forget some of them, the images from that day will never be out of my mind, not will the victims and their families.

  • Highway fatalities on the rise

    By Terry Mills

    About a decade ago, Kentucky started to see a welcome trend as the number of highway fatalities began a steady decline.

    Totals that regularly exceeded 900 a year before 2007 dropped to 638 in 2013, a figure not seen in the commonwealth since the 1940s.

    Unfortunately, that was as low as it would go.  The number of fatalities on our roads last year was almost a fifth higher than the benchmark set just two years earlier, and through the first seven-plus months of this year. It’s eight percent ahead of where it was last August.

  • Narrowing the gap

    By State Rep. Terry Mills

    Kentucky received some welcome news last month when a national study found that no state had a smaller gap when comparing the high school graduation rates of students from low- and higher-income families.

    The average gap across the country stands at 15 percent, but it’s just one percent here in the commonwealth.  In fact, our low-income students graduate at a higher rate than the overall national average, something only five other states can say.

  • How Is Your Website Working for You?

    The first website was the CERN site, posted on November 1992, nearly 25 years ago. The first generally commercial sites emerged in late 1999. The Wayback Machine at archive.org/web/ will take you on a journey back in Internet time. You can enter any number of web-site addresses and view the history of them. The earliest archive of my own business website, www.tsif.com, goes back to May 8, 1999. It is interesting to see how website presentation has evolved, or devolved, over the past couple of decades.
