  • When I was a kid, my father’s mother owned a bakery.

    Whenever we’d visit her, we would come home with huge pink bakery boxes filled with assorted butter cookies, plus bags of bagels and loaves of bread and the best cinnamon rolls and bear claws you could ever eat.

    Fun fact: My dad used to say when Uncle Benny swept the floor at night, whatever he swept up was what he put on the bear claws as toppings.

    I’m pretty sure he was joking, or else he wanted to gross us out so he could eat all the bear claws.

  • It’s chigger time across Kentucky. Just talking about them may make you itch. Chiggers are actually the immature stage of certain mite species. You’ll find them most often in overgrown, bushy areas. They also congregate in shady, humid areas near stream banks, under or around shade trees or in berry thickets.

    After hatching, larvae crawl around until they find and attach to a suitable host. In addition to humans, chiggers feed on a variety of wild and domestic animals, including snakes, turtles, birds, rodents and domestic pets such as dogs and cats.

  • After a snowy, cold winter and a spring filled with heavy rain and thunderstorms, it’s no surprise that Kentuckians are welcoming the arrival of summer. With that excitement, however, comes the temptation to overspend. Between rising gas and grocery prices, vacations and extra expenses for summer outings such as golf, the community pool or summer camp, it can be easy to splurge. Learning simple ways to stretch your dollar will help your family enjoy the excess of summertime without breaking the bank.

  • Long gone are the days of companies offering monthly pensions to their retirees. While there are still some baby-boomers that have been grandfathered into these pension plans, most are left with only 401(k) plans. So, what’s the deal? Are matching contributions into a 401(k) plan better or worse than a company pension for the employee? Why does it appear that the younger generation is left out in the dark when it comes to a company pension? The fact is, depending on your specific company’s matching contributions, having a 401(k) might be better for you in the long run.
