    A mild winter and warm spring has more people outside and active — and they have company.
    Ticks, mosquitoes and other insects are active earlier this year due to unseasonably warm weather and medical professionals are advising people to be cautious of themselves and their pets.
    But most pests are just, well, pesky.
    Only the black-legged ticks species carries lyme disease and it is rare in Kentucky. More cases are reported in Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and the northeast.

  • Carrying on the table talk tradition

    A few years ago, my mother gave me one of my most prized possessions.

    It wasn’t a huge flat screen television or the latest iPhone. She gave me my grandparents’ kitchen table.

    It has a worn quartered ash top; two insertable leaves; thick scrolling legs. They had a dining room table that seemed much more elegant and contemporary, but it was only used for the overflow of family that was there on Christmas night. Otherwise, it sat in a separate room like a dainty showroom piece from the 70s.
