  • Mid-life crisis or ‘Extreme Makeover: Professional Edition’?

    I’m pretty sure it’s a mid-life crisis.
    But I can’t afford to buy a convertible, so I’ve decided, instead, to redefine myself – professionally speaking. Kind of like Madonna, but without the flair.

    Basically, overcrowded animal shelters and overwhelmed animal welfare groups are cleaning up messes made by people who refuse to do the right thing when it comes to their pets. Trust me, I know exactly how expensive this can be.
    Over the past eight years or so, Trimble and Henry counties had been paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Kentucky Humane Society to handle local animal control.

  • Claifying the new subscription system for Banner website

    I’ve had several people ask me questions about last week’s front page article on our move to a subscription-based website, effective Feb. 23.
