  • You’ve got the Interview Now What?

    You’ve got the interview—now what? Once you have the interview scheduled, make sure that you are ready to impress your potential employer. Employers are looking for applicants that know how to make a good impression. When preparing for an interview--think about your personal appearance, researching the company, and the dos and don’ts of interviewing. The first impression is the most important.  

  • Bringing lost lambs home

    I remember the first time one of my children got lost.
    She was maybe two and we were in a department store when I blinked or sneezed, and in that nanosecond when my eyes were closed, she disappeared.
    She was only gone for a few minutes, which was long enough for me to imagine the worst. So, I did what all mothers who think their kids are lost do, I panicked.
    But she wasn’t lost. She had ducked underneath a rack of clothes to hide from me.

  • Kentucky remembers

    On Thursday this week, our nation will pause to remember those whose lives were lost on Sept. 11, 2001.
    If you are old enough to recall exactly where you were and what you were doing when you first heard the news, it can seem difficult to believe that 13 years have passed.
    As a nation, only a few events in our modern history stand as tall in our collective memory. They include the end of World War II, President Kennedy’s assassination and Neil Armstrong’s walking on the moon.

    Talk about good news wrapped in bad: In the midst of grieving the loss of a loved one, you learn that you were named beneficiary of their 401(k) plan. Chances are you’ve got too much on your mind to make any sudden decisions about what to do with the money.
    However, don’t procrastinate too long. The IRS has ironclad rules, deadlines and penalties concerning inherited retirement accounts, which vary depending on what type of account it is. This column discusses inherited 401(k) and similar employer-provided plans.

  • Life lessons in the mud

    Although I personally don’t get the fascination with running races through mud, these days lots of people do.
    A few years ago, my two daughters did a mud race together. My oldest daughter, Alison, said the obstacles freaked her out and she doesn’t like climbing cargo nets and was leery of leaping over fire.
    “Otherwise, the mud was fun,” she said. “Once you commit to being muddy and know you’re going to feel gross and will be cleaning mud out of your ears for weeks after, it’s just plain fun.”

  • State programs aimed at Kentucky’s reforestation

    There is a saying that the best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago, and the second best time is now.
    Earlier this spring, state leaders joined with local Scouting organizations and utility companies to begin bringing that saying to life, and to do it in a way no other state has ever attempted. Their long-term goal, known as “Kentucky’s 20/20 Vision for Reforestation,” is to plant 20 million seedlings over the next 20 years.
