  • Volunteering is 
a great way to show community you care

    So, from mid-August to the end of November, it was like living in Southern California – sunny and unseasonably warm weather, with so little rain we had a severe drought.
    Now, just barely into December, we’ve had our first major snowstorm of the winter on Saturday and plunging temperatures with wind-chill factors taking them into single digits – and possibly below zero by the time this issue goes to press.
    It’s pretty amazing, I think.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Bedford PTA gives thanks to all Fall Festival supporters

    Editor:

    The Bedford Elementary School PTA wants to thank the community for its support of the 2010 BES Fall Festival, held Nov. 6.  We had a great turnout for the food, games, raffle and auction.

    The event was a huge success because of your donations, support, and time. The faculty, staff, and students are grateful to have such a wonderful and involved community that truly cares about the success of its young people.
