  • Look around you -- what do you see? People are rushing around getting ready for the holidays.
    It’s all too easy to get yourself stuck in the same old stressful cycle year after year. Many of us, it seems, fail to recognize this self-destructive pattern and come to dread the holidays.
    Perhaps this feeling is, in part, due to a lack of conscious thought about what the holiday season really means to us. If we can take this into consideration, then we might be better able to spend time doing what we really think is important.

  • When Metro-Goldwyn-Meyer announced in July 1958 that a new movie starring Frank Sinatra would be filmed in and around the Madison area, the rush of excitement in the region was overwhelming.

    Movie stars, production crew and gaffers by the busload swarmed into the area in early August, and Madison was transformed into a multi-block Hollywood movie set. Director Vincente Minelli, actresses Shirley MacLaine and Martha Hyer, and actors Dean Martin and Arthur Kennedy were among those joining Sinatra in town for the production of “Some Came Running.”

  • Jefferson Community and Technical College student Trent Mullikin was presented Nov. 17 with a $2,000 “Tools for Tomorrow”scholarship from W.W.

Mullikin, a Trimble county resident, is in the engineering technology  program at JCTC Carrollton. Upon graduation, Mullikin also will receive $1,000 worth of tools from Grainger to help him begin his career.

  • Every winter, we look forward to the pleasure of warming our hands and feet by a blazing fire, mesmerized by the dancing flames.
    While I don’t have a fireplace or wood stove myself, several of my neighbors do, and the aroma of their wood stoves brings back many childhood memories. There is just something about the aroma of a good fireplace.

  • Winter weather in Kentucky tends to present challenges in the form of snow, ice and freezing temperatures.  
    What isn’t talked about, though, is the discomfort caused by weather inside the home. The itch that plagues many people during winter can be the result of inside air that does not contain adequate moisture.
    Low humidity levels can cause high levels of discomfort including dry skin and stuffy sinuses.
