  • After a potentially life threatening bout with her Crohn’s disease and septic shock in 2016, Lyndi Carnal pulled through with a heart to help others.
    Mother Tiffany also found a cause to work on, after fearing the doctors relied far too much on addictive medications in her daughter’s treatment. Tiffany went on a crusade to promote natural alternatives to pharmaceuticals.
    Doctors diagnosed Lyndi with Crohn’s at 14. She faced numerous hospitalizations due to complications from the autoimmune disease. At 17, Lyndi was gravely ill in Cincinnati Children’s Hospital during December 2016.

  • It’s not easy being a Wildcat fan when you live in the Music City — especially when you work for another SEC school.
    No matter what, Rachel Sims, an alumna of the communication sciences and disorders graduate program in the University of Kentucky College of Health Sciences, will always bleed blue, according to a University of Kentucky News profile of the Wildcat alumna.
    Originally from Eminence, Sims now lives in Nashville, where she works for Vanderbilt University Medical Center as a speech language pathologist (SLP).

  • As you started into the new year, did you resolve to have healthier habits? Many people do. But a long-term study found that Americans are not doing as well as they were 20 years ago in maintaining a heart-healthy lifestyle. And that increases their chances of having a heart attack, stroke or heart disease.
    Life’s Simple 7. In the study, the percentage of Americans who met all these heart-healthy lifestyle goals — what the American Heart Association calls Life’s Simple 7 — dropped from 8.5 percent to 5.8 percent:
    • Eat a balanced diet.
    • Be active.
    • Manage your weight.

  • Henry County Public Library’s Bookmobile has added a couple stops on its winter tour this January, according to the librarians.

    • Eminence Village — first and third Tuesdays from 5 to 6 p.m.
    • Windy Hills Apartments — second and fourth Tuesdays from 5 to 6 p.m.
    • Lake View Apartments — first and third Thursdays from 4 to 4:55 p.m.
    • Campbellsburg Community Center — first and third Thursdays from 5 to 6 p.m.
    • Osage Estates — second and fourth Thursdays from 5 to 6 p.m.

  • Whatever our economic status, we all have treasures — items from which we will be parted only as a last resort.
    As I look around the room in which I am writing this article, I see books. Lots of books.
    Books are among my most prized possessions.
    Should I some day have to downsize and not have room for them all, I already know there are some books from which I will not be parted.
    They will go with me even if I have to stack them on my bed.
    Some things are treasures because of what they are.
    Others are prized because of who gave them to us and/or what they represent.

  • Darlene celebrated her 80th birthday with family and friends at the Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church on Saturday Jan. 6.
    Her children are Kim Williams, Kevin Marsee (Maria), Jay Winiecki (Melyssa), Tammy Murphy (Kevin) and Shaun Winiecki (Chyree). She has eight grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

  • It’s certainly not a cure-all. But it’s pretty impressive.
    Exercise is one of the few things that can help prevent or slow the development of most — if not all — major health problems. High blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, bone loss — to name a few. Topping things off, exercise can help ease the aging process, for example, by strengthening and stretching muscles and joints.
