  • Jefferson Community and Technical College student Trent Mullikin was presented Nov. 17 with a $2,000 “Tools for Tomorrow”scholarship from W.W. Grainger at the Carrollton campus.  Only 150 scholarships are given each year by Grainger, and only two of those go to students in the Kentucky Community and Technical College System. 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.

  • High stress levels and a severe skin rash were conditions that prompted Max to come to me for a health consultation.
    He had what could be defined as a “Bah, Humbug” personality. Max had chronic negative attitudes, which can cause biochemical changes leading to toxic conditions throughout the organs and glands. Chronic skin eruptions resulted as the toxicity flushed out his pores.
    Overworked, his liver – the main toxicity-filtering system in the body – was suppressed.

  • The holiday season is a perfect time of year to teach children the importance of community service.
    Start them out by choosing a charity in your own community; talk to your children about the charities they would like to support.
    If you decide to donate to a food bank, give your children the money you decide to spend on donations and let them choose the food items at the grocery store.
    Thoughtful selections give them a chance to think about what some who are less fortunate might need.

  • Reports of bed bugs again are on the rise in the United States; once nearly eliminated, they now are commonly found in homes, apartments, hotels and theaters.
    While mostly prominent in the Upper Midwest and the Northeast corridor, the pests have established themselves in Trimble County, and can be found in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky region and Louisville.
    If you or your family are traveling for Thanksgiving or Christmas, there are some precautions to take to prevent bringing bed bugs home with you.
