  • 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.

  • Sharon Potts is one of six siblings. Five of those siblings have diabetes.
    “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. 

  • Melvin Rowe, artist and creator of Louisville’s Pottery Rowe, has been shaping his world in clay since 1971.

    But this will be his first year to go medieval in Henry County.

    During a phone interview, Rowe said he was working on shaping clay into a two-and-a-half inch clay dragon that will slither up the side of a drinking mug to be peddled at the Kentucky Renaissance Faire this summer. Gargoyles and castles are not far behind.

  • We often hear the term “wellness” and think “healthy” or lack of illness.
    Much study and research has been done in recent decades in the subject of wellness. We now know that wellness means much more than simply a lack of disease. It means to thrive in your life on a variety of levels.

  • I grew up in a small town where my family doctor delivered me and knew all about my interests, my grades and even the sports I played.

  • Many people my age (which if you have to ask, you’re not there yet) probably can agree on one thing.

    It’s hard to know which is more uncomfortable - preparing for a colonoscopy or talking to the doctor about why you think you need one.

    General opinion holds that the procedure itself is the easiest part - owing to the likelihood of extreme sedation.

  • Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.” (Matthew 18:21-23 ESV)

    An amazing story begins with a scene which makes us proud of our heritage in a lifestyle that behooves us to hold onto a part of our past. To instill the view seen in these portrait prints and to recall many stories I have written in my journal does evoke images of bygone days. The pages on time spent in the days of our youth will scan and record an epitaph upon our life’s journey.
