  • Clean your way to a healthier you

    Many of us would love to work more physical activity into our schedules but between responsibilities at work and home, it can be hard to squeeze it in. The 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week most health and wellness experts recommend may seem impossible.
    Not helping matters are the short days and cold weather associated with winter. Fortunately, spring is upon us and with that comes longer days and warmer weather to encourage more outdoor physical activity. 

  • Healthy Living Garden Series

    Join us this Thursday, March 20, 2014 for the Healthy Living Garden Series at the Trimble County Cooperative Extension Office. Growing your own fruits and vegetables is not only a great way to exercise; it is also a great way to eat.

I also believe that fresh tastes better!

    By LEE McCLELLAN
    Kentucky Afield magazine
    FRANKFORT, Ky. – The cold, muddy water coursing through many rivers in Kentucky right now brings another round of dread in anglers. This situation seems depressing, but for anglers with level 10 cabin fever after this long, dark winter, it is good news.
    When the rivers clear and stabilize, the sauger and walleye fishing will take off downstream of Green River Lake, Lake Cumberland, Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley.

  • O death, where is thy sting?

    For me, last week began and ended with funerals.
    On Monday, I attended the funeral of Mary Zawalich, whom I’d never met, or maybe I have and I don’t remember.
    About a month ago, she called me. She told me her name and said she was 92 and she was dying, but that it was OK, that it was a “happy death.”
    She had called to say that she’s been a reader of my column and that I’ve been a “wonderful part” of her life. She called to thank me, to say that she admired me, that she has loved me.
