  • The recent grant of $2.5 million to Henry, Shelby and Bullitt Counties has shone a light on the problem of diabetes in our area. These counties have a multi-million dollar grant over the next few years because they have a significantly higher incidence of diabetes. That may seem like a huge amount, until you recognize that the cost of medical care and lost productivity for diabetes in Kentucky is more than $2 billion annually.

    “I’ve had it for 15 years,” she said. “I hate taking medications and I’ve been insulin dependent for five years.”

    Smithfield’s Judy Bender said coping with the disease is still confusing after two years of dealing with it.

    Dallas Milliner sympathized and singled out Cook’s pharmacist George McDonald for helping him learn about diabetes. “I had a hard time finding information,” he said.

    I sometimes forget how many years I’ve lived (a nice way of saying I sometimes forget how old I am).  Whenever my mind starts recalling old songs, I’m reminded.

    As a child, I loved sitting in the living room listening to my mom’s records.  You remember records, don’t you?  They were round discs made of vinyl.  You placed a disc on a turntable, gently placed the stylus arm down onto the disc, and there was music—beautiful stereophonic music.
