  • 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.

  • Dealing with a child's challenging behavior during the holidays

     While we like to think of the holidays as a picture-perfect Norman Rockwell painting, they tend to be the exact opposite and full of stress for everyone around. Think about it—from buying presents and extra food to visiting relatives you hardly ever see, stress can come from all sides during this time of the year. As a result, you may find your child acting out more than normal.

    Here are some suggestions to help you and your children better navigate holiday stress.

  • 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.
