    We live in disposable days: get it, use it, throw it away. With eyes glued to screens all day, we fail to see life as it is and was, beyond the digital world. We miss meaningful lessons others may leave behind. Unseen, these bits of history disappear without a trace.

  • LOUISVILLE, Ky.– Out-of-school youth, ages 16-21, in Trimble County now can get tutoring assistance and financial incentives to complete their GEDs through the expanded services of the  KentuckianaWorks Youth Career Center.

  • Anyone can fall, but the risk of falling and being seriously injured by a fall increases with age.  One in three adults over the age of 65 falls each year, causing the majority of injury and injury-related deaths among seniors.  National Falls Prevention Awareness Day is the first day of fall, Sept 22.  This day brings attention to the seriousness of falls and the ways to prevent them.  

    Four simple ways to reduce the risk of a fall include exercise, healthy vision, safe home environments and smart medication usage.
