  • New laws seek more oversight of quasi-government agencies

    When we think of state and local governments, it is certainly understandable that much of our focus is on elected offices.
    They are the ones, after all, that ultimately decide the direction the Commonwealth takes.
    But that should not underscore the critical importance of literally hundreds of quasi-government boards and agencies that range from the large – like the Kentucky Lottery Corporation – to such smaller ones as water, fire and library districts. They, too, touch our daily lives, often in ways we may not even realize.

  • Dense, seasoned wood best for fireplace/woodstove

    Every winter, we look forward to the pleasure of warming our hands and feet by a blazing fire, mesmerized by the dancing flames.
    While I don’t have a fireplace or wood stove myself, several of my neighbors do, and the aroma of their wood stoves brings back many childhood memories. There is just something about the aroma of a good fireplace.

  • Indoor humidity adds comfort in winter

    Winter weather in Kentucky tends to present challenges in the form of snow, ice and freezing temperatures.  
    What isn’t talked about, though, is the discomfort caused by weather inside the home. The itch that plagues many people during winter can be the result of inside air that does not contain adequate moisture.
    Low humidity levels can cause high levels of discomfort including dry skin and stuffy sinuses.

  • Detoxing body, brain aids perfectionist

    High stress levels and a severe skin rash were conditions that prompted Max to come to me for a health consultation.
    He had what could be defined as a “Bah, Humbug” personality. Max had chronic negative attitudes, which can cause biochemical changes leading to toxic conditions throughout the organs and glands. Chronic skin eruptions resulted as the toxicity flushed out his pores.
    Overworked, his liver – the main toxicity-filtering system in the body – was suppressed.
