  • Controlling thoughts leads to inner peace

    Betty came to me for consultation to find peace in her life. She described several situations of chaos and disruption. She has two daughters who had difficult relationships and a father who was very ill.

    Stress at work was a constant threat of cutbacks. Her workload had increased because of the last cutback, which left her department understaffed. She was working longer hours with higher quotas.
    She was worried about the erratic weather and growing violence around the world.

  • Legislators get overview of redistricting ‘primer’

    Special to The Banner

    As state legislators prepare plans for Kentucky’s 38 Senate seats, 100 House seats and six Congressional districts, a number of laws and practical factors must be considered, a national redistricting expert said last week.

     Tim Storey, a Senior Fellow with the National Conference of State Legislatures, spoke to members of the Interim Joint Committee on State Government.

    “This is a redistricting primer or Redistricting 101,” said Senate Co-Chair Damon Thayer, R-Georgetown.

  • Give infants and toddlers a good start

    Recent findings indicate that even infants and toddlers are now at risk for becoming obese. Current national figures for infants and toddlers show that one in 10 is overweight, and more than 20 percent of children between the ages 2 and 5 are already overweight or obese.

    Early obesity can lead to adult overweight or obesity and the chronic diseases that stem from weight management issues. Reversing this alarming trend is critical for parents or care-givers to ensure health for children as they grow up.
    Recommendations include the following:

  • Summer education programs

    For many students, the end of the school year does not mean an end to time spent with a teacher.

    In fact, hundreds work as hard during summer vacation as they do during the rest of the year.  Two of the most popular programs Kentucky offers are Governor’s Scholars and the Governor’s School for the Arts, both of which give select high school students a chance to spend several weeks on a college campus with others as driven as they are.
