  • Arney: Did you forget? Consistency is the key

    The weekends are nearly always when I hear people complain the most in terms of being structured. This isn’t because they don’t have the time; it’s just because naturally for most people the weekend has less structure to it - therefore you’re not “forced” to eat at specific times around work, etc. Did you forget to eat all your meals over the weekend? What about your supplements?

    The point of this article is to give you a reality check on where progress could be stalling for you.

  • Ky. fair board reports on 2016 events, plus impact on state

    What do the National Rifle Association, National Farm Machinery Show and Kentucky State Fair have in common? They were top draws for visitors to the Kentucky Exposition Center and Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville in 2016.

  • Don’t leave children, pets in hot vehicles

    It’s HOT! Summer is a vulnerable time for children and pets to be left behind or when you may be gone for “just a second.” With this article I’d like to outline some dangers of hot vehicles in the summer sun and tips on ways you can change up your vehicle routine to be aware of those in the car with you.

  • Thanks to library’s community partners

    Now that August is upon us, we are winding down our Summer Reading Program. Each year we try to reach as many children over the summer months to encourage fun, play and friendship, while still learning. With the help of several community partners, I believe we expanded our reach throughout the entire program.

  • Teen Court, Rocket Docket coming to local judicial system

    Over the past couple of months there has been quite a bit going on in the Carroll County legal community, and I am not talking about all of the activity on the public records page of the newspaper. I am referring to the two new initiatives that are being put in place in our court systems: Teen Court and Rocket Docket.

  • Rapid DNA testing discussed before Interim Joint Committee on Judiciary

    Laura Sudkamp with the Kentucky State Police crime lab remembers when it took months to process one DNA sample.

    “You literally had to stick the film in the freezer for six to eight weeks,” the KSP Central Lab manager told the Interim Joint Committee on Judiciary last week. Her lab can now generate a profile on a DNA sample in one or two days, she said, but even that’s a bit longer than need be under some new technology.

  • Turning 30 brings ‘lessons’ for life

    Is a minute always 60 seconds? An hour always 60 minutes? A day always 24 hours? I don’t think so.

    Why? Because it feels like time just keeps flying by quicker and quicker every year.

    As I’m sitting at my desk typing this column, my time in the 20s is rapidly fading. If you’re reading this column, it’s over. I am no longer “in my 20s.” I have now hit 30.

  • Focus on reaching your full potential, not comparing yourself to others

    In a world where social media influences the entire world and the way we think like never before, it is VERY easy to get caught up in a negative cycle whereby you’re always comparing yourself to others. The quickest way to feel like you’re not progressing quickly enough is comparing yourself to others.

  • We are one nation, under God

    More than 200 years ago, our Founding Fathers put their lives on the line to create a new country in which freedom reigned. These men had a vision of a nation unafraid to face its enemies and win. We, the people of the United States, have faced insurmountable odds since our young country’s conception, but continue to fight for our God-given rights unique to the United States of America.

  • Combating Kentucky’s opioid epidemic

    The News-Enterprise

    Kentucky’s opioid addiction has risen to epidemic levels to set the problem at the forefront as the most critical public health threat facing the state. Much is being done in an effort to combat the rising toll heroin and prescription opioid abuse is taking on Kentucky’s communities and others across the nation. But new state and federal funding, programs and regulatory efforts appear to be too little and too slow in coming to effectively curb the growing death-rate trend.
