  • MADISON, Ind. – In recognition of Colon Cancer Awareness Month in March, King’s Daughters’ Health (KDH) will again be providing free take-home, DNA-based colon cancer testing kits through its physician/provider offices. Testing kits are available from physicians who care for adult patients - Family Medicine and Internal Medicine providers.

  • Kentucky, with its ever-increasing interest in purebred livestock, offers purebred cattle breeders one of the most unique and effective state-supported promotional events ever developed – the Kentucky Farm Bureau Beef Expo. This year marks the 23rd Annual Expo, which is held the first weekend in March, at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky. This may only be the 23rd year of the expo, but looking back at previous years, the Kentucky Beef Expo actually has more history before its state supported start in 1987.

  • March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. It’s a good time to raise awareness about the third-most common cancer in the United States and talk about possible ways to prevent it. Recently, scientists have begun to show that a healthy gut may play an important role in colorectal cancer prevention.

  • Between work, community activities and running errands, meals on the go have become a staple for many American families. You may not realize it, but taking those few extra moments to sit down for a meal with your family fills more than just your stomachs.

  • This past Valentine’s Day, the newspaper ran a story I wrote about Harry and Charlotte Austin who have been sweethearts since Charlotte was 10 and Harry was 11.

    They recently celebrated their 70th anniversary.

    I’ve written about them before – they sit behind me in church on Saturday nights.

    For the past five or so years Charlotte has had dementia, and in 2015 she had a stroke that affected her left side.

  • By CRYSTAL CAUDILLO

    It’s been my experience that some of the most beautiful things in the world have a dark side – a very, very dark side. One of the most strikingly colored snakes is highly venomous. The Coral Snake is banded with yellow, red and black stripes. Unfortunately, to be bitten by one of these pretties would prove to be an extremely disappointing way to get close to nature.
