  • Lottery funding helps to fund student educational programs

    Earlier this spring, the Kentucky Lottery reached a major milestone when it marked a quarter-century since its first ticket was sold in the commonwealth.

    This spring was also when the General Assembly lifted a little-known prohibition that had kept the lottery from advertising how the state’s proceeds are spent, even though it has generally been known that this money goes toward education. 

  • Use glycemic index to guide food choice

    Sweet potatoes or white ones? White rice or brown rice? White  bread or brown bread? Chances are that anyone who has decided to ‘eat clean’ as one of their new goals have asked one or all of these questions.

    In fact some people may have sought advice from a friend, coach or trainer and odds are they’d have been told to stay away from the white stuff. But would those good Samaritans have been right, and what were they basing their advice on?

  • Skillet dish makes it easy to prepare a tasty meal

    Hello once again my friends. It’s hard to believe its September. It’s hot and it’s humid and that makes me think of one thing — cooking. Yes, cooking. To be honest, most things make me think of cooking so it’s nothing out of the ordinary.

    This time of year it’s hard to think of cooking indoors. It’s hot enough inside the house and the thought of turning on the stove and making it even hotter is not a thought that appeals to very many people. That gets me to the point of this month’s article; outdoor cooking.

  • Carroll County sees growth in arts activities

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe Carroll County is experiencing its own sort of Renaissance. Not necessarily returning to Greek sculpture and Italianate Villas, but I do see signs of artistic interest.

    Main Street alone has two art studios, two dance studios, and one music studio. That’s five opportunities to learn something new. That’s in addition to the various festivals we have with artists and musicians displaying their talents and multiple programs in the local schools promoting the arts.

    What is “The Arts” anyway?
