The 70-year-old was commander twice of the division, which had nearly 4,000 members across the state. Petitioners to rename the building sought help from Sen. Mitch McConnell and Rep.

  • Goal setting your way to fitness improvements

    You may have recently made a decision to get healthier but may not know where to start. Adding physical activity to your routine is a great way to improve your mind, mood and body.

    Adults need 150 minutes of physical activity each week. While this may seem overwhelming, you can split up over the week, but keep it in 10-minute segments. Set an appointment and keep it with yourself each day to ensure you meet this goal.
