  • Fentanyl adds to woes in war on illegal drugs

    FRANKFORT – It has often been said that the war against illegal drugs is an ever-changing battlefield.  When we seem to be making headway on one front, another tragically opens up.

    Over the past dozen years, those “fronts” in Kentucky have ranged from meth and synthetic drugs to prescription pain medicine and heroin.

    According to the annual report the state’s Office of Drug Control Policy released last week, a new name has been added to that list: fentanyl.

  • Organizers plan a ‘colorful’ run, walk

    Join us for a colorful good time. As The Community Health Educator at Three Rivers District Health Department, I am excited to announce the award of $3,000 to promote and host a 5K Color Run/Walk. This will be a new health/fitness opportunity made possible by an Interact for Health mini-grant that I wrote.

    Saturday, July 23, will be the day of the color blast at Kentucky Speedway in Gallatin County as a central location for our serviced counties.

    This will be a brand new event offered to Gallatin, Owen, Pendleton and Carroll counties.

  • Prevent, protect against mosquitos

    As we come up to Mosquito Control Awareness Week June 26 through July 2, enjoy the summer and protect yourselves from mosquitos.

    As mosquitos bite, they can transfer diseases. These diseases may infect you or your pets, and may include West Nile Virus, Zika Virus, or dog heartworm.

    While many mosquitos may not carry disease, the red dot which is left behind is caused by an allergic reaction to the mosquito’s saliva.

    To reduce the risk of mosquito bites, follow the three D’s of the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA).

  • Options for grilling flavors can happen on the stove

    Hello once again my friends. Can it be that we have already reached summer? Hot weather, bugs and high humidity.

    I know people say time goes by faster the older we get but this is ridiculous. Oh well, it’s here and it’s up to us to make the most of it.

    When we think of summer food invariably we think of grilling. I do think this has changed somewhat as people tend to grill more during the winter now than they did years ago but still, the prevailing thought is grilling.

  • Got rocks? It reminds you that God is working for us

    Although I don’t think it’s terminal, it is chronic: I have a chronic case of CRS -- Can’t Remember Stuff.

    That’s the diagnosis one of my co-workers gave me the other day. He may or may not have been joking.

    I tell people all the time to please, please, please remind me of stuff. It’s the CRS, folks. I just can’t remember.

    At least I’m not alone. The ancient Israelites had it too. They were always forgetting stuff, mostly the stuff God had done for them, even rescuing them from years of slavery in Egypt.
