  • Taking lessons from flight

    Some time ago I was in another city and a friend offered to fly me home in his little two-seater airplane. On the way he suddenly realized we had gotten off course and were lost. We couldn’t see any landmarks to guide us, the ground below was rough and there was no place to land. My friend was concerned we could run out of gas. There was no radio in the plane to check our course. For a time, life for us was a very uncomfortable experience.

  • Letters to the Editor: Thanks to road department

    On Monday, Nov. 17, the snow brought down limbs from one of our trees and blocked Barkwood Dr. A neighbor called the Oldham County Road Dept. and a crew came right out and pushed the limbs out of the road. On Wednesday, Nov. 19, the road crew came out and removed the limbs from our yard. Here’s a big thank you to the road crews for your great service.

  • Active lifestyle can help fight diabetes

    November is National Diabetes Awareness Month and in recent years the spotlight has been on Type 2 Diabetes and its precursor – known as prediabetes. Both conditions have been increasing at startling rates in the adult population.

    New statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that 86 million people in the U.S. have prediabetes, up from 79 million people in 2010. The number of type 2 diabetes cases also continues to grow, fueled in part by a continued rise in the rate of obesity.

  • Letter to the Editor: Protesting potential rate hike from LG&E/KU
  • Tune into four channels

    Every day I get older, but am I really wiser? I think most of us carry on being just as clueless, still making plenty of mistakes. It’s just that we make new ones and different ones. We do learn from experience and may not make the same mistakes again, but there is a whole new world of fresh ones just lying in wait for us to mess up and fall into. The secret is to accept this and not to beat yourself up when you do mess things up. Be forgiving and accept that it’s all part of that growing older but no wiser routine.

  • Muffin top: a love story

    I often reference my weight struggles in this column, and then sometimes, when I meet someone, they will say, “You are not fat. I don’t know why you wrote that.”

    I accept their words with a smile, but in my mind I am insisting, “three weeks ago when I wrote it I weighed at least 12 more pounds than I do now! You should see me naked. It’s hideous.”
