  • Attacking anxiety

    I suffer from a chronic disease and recently had a flare up, albeit a mild one.

    I’m a hypochondriac, and in my case the disease manifests itself as anxiety. It started shortly after my husband had open-heart surgery six years ago
    this month. An elephant came and sat on my chest and refused to budge, and then strange, random twinges started twingeing and I could feel my heart beating, which is normally a good thing, except when I paid close attention to it, it would beat faster, which scared me, which made it beat even faster.

  • Wood production a $4.5 billion industry in commonwealth

    It may be cliché, but for much of Kentucky’s history, it was fair to say that most citizens literally couldn’t see the forest for the trees.

    The state’s first forester, for example, wrote a century ago that most people “wondered why anyone should be concerned about the forests.”  It was considered such a never-ending resource back then that even massive wildfires - which burned a half-million acres alone in 1880 - could not sway public opinion.
