  • Dyslexia is a reading disability that can make concentrating and reading difficult for children.

    It’s important to remember that dyslexia has no bearing on intelligence, and in fact, many famous people are believed to have had or been diagnosed with dyslexia, including Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Tom Cruise, and baseball pitcher Nolan Ryan. Detection of learning disabilities has advanced over recent decades, so much so that dyslexia is now commonly diagnosed.

  • Feeding cattle in the winter can be the single, largest expense for producers according to University of Kentucky College of Agriculture beef specialist Roy Burris and this year will not be an exception.

    Due to high input costs, mainly grain and concentrates, this year will present a challenge to producers.

  • With the recent news stories about child abuse, and death, it is easy to turn away and let the social service system deal with the problems.

    In Trimble Family Court, the events that sometimes bring out the worst in parents are examined and remedies are put into place. But family court judges, lawyers and social workers have hundreds of cases each year, and sometimes, the child goes back to the same home with the parents or caregivers that mistreated them in the first place.
