  • HARMONIZING HEALTH

    I had a client named Bill who was caught in the belief that men are not supposed to cry, and that emotions are for women only. He had become a victim of his own rigid view of life and of his fear of feeling anything.
    He told me he had a concern of losing control if his feelings started coming up, so he used his thoughts to push them back down. In his holistic health consultations, we started a process to release his longtime repressed feelings and improve his distorted concept of what was required of him to be considered a “man.”

  • Take ‘Reel Action’ against underage drinking

    I have a story to tell you. If you’re a parent, this could be tough reading; but, it’s necessary reading.
    If you’re a teenager, chances are you’ve heard a similar tale somewhere along the line.
    Either way, it will affect you. My hope is that it moves you to take some action – some “REEL” Action.

  • Time, distance challenges for animal control officer

    With two counties to cover, animal control officer Dan Flinkfelt has his work cut out for him, according to his Kentucky Humane Society supervisor Mike McNutt.
    Trimble and Henry counties share a contract with KHS in Louisville that provide services such as picking up strays, taking in pets surrendered by their owners for various reasons, enforcing animal cruelty laws and handling any animal-related complaints from residents.
    Flinkfelt is based at the KHS animal shelter in Eminence and oversees both counties’ animal issues and complaints.

  • READY TO RUMBLE

    MADISON, Ind. – Don’t let the shimmery pastel-colored robe fool you – Bill Gordon, a.k.a. Sweet William Valentine, is a lean, mean, fighting machine.
    The Milton, Ky., resident is a championship wrestler who started his career at the ripe old age of 36.
    “Normally, wrestlers start their careers when they are 17 years old,” he admitted. Gordon had wanted to be a wrestler since he was 15, watching WWF and other wrestling stars on TV in the 1980s and ’90s.

  • LaHood to attend ground-breaking

    U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood will make another trip to Madison, Ind., next week on behalf of the Milton-Madison Bridge Project.

The TIGER grant was provided as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the economic stimulus program.

  • Games raise $600 for family

  • Humans can't follow rules, which is why God gave us 10

    I’m a recovering helicopter parent, having spent countless hours and huge amounts of energy hovering over my kids, trying to turn them into mini versions of myself.
    Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, neither daughter is exactly like me, although they have both inherited the need for a “Do not touch” linen closet — shelves of carefully arranged towels and linens that are not to be touched. Ever.
