  • Winter makes me SAD, but spring warms my soul

    I always know when spring is close at hand when I run out of vitamin D.

    For the past few years, I have purchased a 90-day supply of vitamin D in late December or early January to ward off symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

  • A lesson learned from Miss Daisy and Hoke

    Donna and I recently watched Driving Miss Daisy, a 1989 movie starring Jessica Tandy (Miss Daisy) and Morgan Freeman (Hoke).  I was amazed at how much of the story I had forgotten, or didn’t get, from 25 years ago.  

    What I remembered was a story about a cantankerous old woman and a tenacious old African-American man who managed to become friends in spite of their differences.  There was more to the story.

  • Proposed Innovation Act threatens American inventors

    By Thomas Massie, U.S. Representative

    At the recent Northern Kentucky Regional First LEGO League Robotics tournament, I marveled at the imagination and creativity displayed by so many young people.  

    In these students, I see the spirit of ingenuity and a culture of invention that have been critical to our nation’s economic success for over two centuries. 

  • This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine

    The potential of solar power has not yet seen the light of day in Kentucky, but that could change with a little prodding of the General Assembly, according to the Community Farm Alliance.

    Henry County has a proud farming heritage. Never have I seen it more appropriately on display than at the annual Henry County Harvest Showcase.

  • Making necessary adjustments this week

    The paper might look a little different this week.

    Due to a fire at one of our corporate printing plants, changes had to be made for all of the newspapers in our group in order to re-route printing jobs from Standard Printing in Shepherdsville to other available plants.

  • Ky. General Assembly 2015 session passes halfway mark

    There are milestones in each General Assembly session.

    This week’s arrival of the mid-point of the 2015 session is a noteworthy one. The halfway mark is a natural place to look back at the first half of the session and consider what’s been accomplished.

  • Help Kentucky's hungry and Kentucky's farmers

    When you donate a part of your state tax refund to the Farms to Food Banks Trust Fund, you’re helping Kentuckians in unfortunate circumstances – some of them your friends and neighbors – gain access to fresh, nutritious, local foods. You’re also helping Kentucky farmers make a living. It’s good for economic development, and it’s consistent with Kentucky values of compassion and generosity.

  • I survived 'snow-magedon' 2015

    Snow. Snow. Snow. Snow. Snow. Snow. Snow. Snow. Snow. Snow. Snow. Snow. Snow. Snow. Snow.

    Sorry! Just reflecting my experience about what happens when people from the temperate zone of the United States (in the band that receives four separate and distinct seasons between the Arctic deep freeze in the North and the sweaty tropics of the Southeast and the sweaty arid desert of Southwest) receive inclement winter weather.
