  • A living will may be the most valuable gift

    There are many gifts that we give to our families throughout our lives – time, love, money, attention; the list goes on and on.  One of the most valuable gifts we can give our families is to have a living will.
    I remember when my grandparents had failing health, and my family was caring for them.  They had living wills and had taken the time to let each of us know how they wanted to spend the final weeks and days of their lives.

  • Be mindful of your eating habits

    One of the most common New Year’s resolutions we make is to lose weight. Eating the correct portions of nutritious foods and engaging in physical activity are two keys to successful weight loss. One way that may help you keep your portions under control is to be mindful of what you eat.

    Mindful eating means you eat slowly and enjoy your food with all your senses. When you are more mindful of what you eat, you may become more aware of when you become full, which prevents overeating.

  • FDs request deed fee increase

    Henry County fire departments operate on budgets based on the price of equipment from seven years ago.

    Fire department officials from each county station met with magistrates Saturday in an effort to strategize a way to increase deed feeds and maintain compliance with safety regulations.

    “I guess from my point of view we need more money,” said Scott Bates, magistrate for District 1. “I honestly don’t know how we can sell a tax increase during these tough times. Everyone is scraping by.”
