  • Alumni needed to plan centennial, scholarship events

    I have the responsibility of serving as the presiding officer of the Alumni Association this year.

    The Trimble County Alumni Association will meet at the Trimble County Public Library at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 30. The meeting is open to all persons interested in event planning for next year’s Alumni Banquet and the upcoming centennial of Trimble County High School.

  • Practical benefits of Reiki

    Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. The special energy that was gifted to Dr. Usui during a twenty-one day Mt Kurama retreat in 1914 was named Reiki. In the Japanese language, the word ‘Rei’ means Universal and ‘Ki’ means Spiritual wisdom which comes from God Consciousness through our Higher Self. This is an extremely high energy frequency which raises the level of lower dense energy that accompanies disease and disturbed emotional states. It aids many of our current health issues.

  • Letter to the Editor

    Scruples

    Editor:

    Forty-five years I have proudly been active in the grass roots movement, from local elections and state elections. During that time I have seen it all from good servants of we the people to the good old boys that fool the voters to place them into the seat of power. Many of our elected officials here at home and sometimes beyond are the cream of the crop and they well deserved our support and votes.

  • Miracles bring faith to the cynical

    Joan Chipkar is one of those people I can’t say no to.

    In 2004, after Florida was hit by hurricanes, she convinced me to go with her to do laundry for health department staff working in the hardest hit area.

    Last year, when her beloved therapy dog Charlie died, I wrote an obituary column about the brown and white cocker spaniel.

    And when she called last week to ask me to write about her miracle great-grandson Landon in Alabama, I didn’t say yes, but I didn’t say no.

  • Cancer is top health concern among Kentuckians

    Earlier this year, The Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky asked more than 1,600 Kentuckians a simple question: What do you think is the most pressing healthcare issue for our citizens? The answer given most often was a word no one wants to hear: Cancer.

    There’s good reason why it’s the top health concern, because in the Commonwealth it’s the leading cause of death among women and a close second behind heart disease in men.  Unfortunately, it’s also more prevalent here than in other states.

  • Kentucky’s postsecondary report card is good

    With summer vacation now in full swing, the last thing students may want to think about is school. But that shouldn’t stop the rest of us, because, overall, the report card is pretty good.

    Consider the number of students who secured a degree or certificate from Kentucky’s colleges and universities this past year. There were nearly 63,000 altogether, according to the Council on Postsecondary Education, an 11 percent increase when compared to 2009-10.
