  • Weather delays state wrestling meet for three weeks

    A week’s worth of winter weather has postponed the state wrestling competition, which was scheduled to take place in Lexington this past weekend.

    The Kentucky High School Athletic Association announced it would postpone the competition late last week citing high snow totals in different parts of the state and the “safety and welfare” of everyone involved.

    Having suffered an embarrassing defeat earlier this month, the North Oldham Lady Mustangs were determined to prove this year's district tournament wasn't a cake walk for top-seeded Trimble County.

     

    Consider the point taken as the Lady Mustangs nearly halved the margin of victory for Trimble County, but still fell 49-32 in the first round of district play.

    With an extra week of preparation, revenge on the mind and a loser-goes-home atmosphere, South Oldham thought they finally had the recipe for defeating No. 1 district seed North Oldham Tuesday night.

     

    But the Mustangs instead survived the upset attempt, 68-61, defeating South on its home court for the third time this season.

  • Learning to protect your heart during February

    It’s no coincidence that during the month of February Americans celebrate both Valentine’s Day and American Heart Month. When you celebrate the love in your life – be sure to include yourself! That means learning about your risks for heart disease and stroke and staying “heart healthy” for yourself and your loved ones.

  • Academies help prepare kindergarteners

    Recent headlines screamed: “only half of Kentucky’s children are prepared for kindergarten.”

    So, now what?

    What will it take to ensure our children are prepared for kindergarten, ready to learn?

    Through public/private partnerships in the state of Kentucky, I believe we’ve found a way to give young children a stronger foundation, to get them ready for school, before they even enter kindergarten. We think a big part of the solution is United Way Born Learning Academies.

  • Cupid plays too many practical jokes

    As I sit here eating my way through my second bag of Conversation Hearts, trying to ignore the fact that there are 60 calories per serving and 34 servings in a bag, I reflect back on what made this Valentine’s Day so “special.” What exactly brought me to this lowly state of sugar binging?

    Hubby and I don’t have a great Valentine’s history. Out of 26 (or is it 27 now?), years since he became my valentine, we have had probably three good ones. Actually, make that two. I forgot about that year there was a rat in our dinner.

  • Time to stop double taxing Social Security

    On Jan. 28, I introduced the Senior Citizens Tax Elimination Act (H.R. 589). This bill would assist our struggling middle class by eliminating an unnecessary and unjust double-tax on seniors.
