• There is real value in ‘trash’

    Many of the items thrown in the trash have value.

    Plastic and glass bottles, aluminum and steel cans, old newspapers and used cardboard boxes have a cash value, but in Kentucky, these items are thrown away more often than being recycled. 

    According to the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection, Kentucky only recycles about a third of our solid waste (aka trash).

  • — A night for teens —
  • It Can Wait!

    Distracted driving, anyone who has been behind the wheel has been guilty of the act.

    Back in the day, it was rubber-necking or as simple activities such as talking to passengers or eating — but today’s drivers face more challenges than ever before with the capability of electronics, specifically a smartphone.
