  • The almighty rep: Where do you start?

    In all my years as a fitness professional I have lost track of how many times I’ve been approached with the following question: How many reps should I do?

    When referring to reps, we are talking about repetitions. For example, if you were performing a simple barbell bench press with 100 pounds and you perform the movement 10 times, that would be 10 repetitions. The method I have used to answer this question that I so often get is by first asking another question: What is it that you wish to accomplish?

  • Thanks to Hospice Bluegrass staff

    Editor:

    To our friends in Carroll County,

    Snow, ice, freezing rain and subzero temperatures were a challenge to much of Kentucky last week. I was touched by the response from Hospice of the Bluegrass staff and our community as so many went to great lengths to ensure homebound hospice patients continued to receive medical and nursing care despite the severe weather.

  • 4-Her asks for support of Ag Tag

    Editor:

    As a proud member of 4-H, I would like to share a little about what 4-H means to me and why it is important to our community. I am involved in the Carroll County 4-H activities. These 4-H programs provide me and my fellow 4-H members skills that are vital to our success in today’s global society. I know 4-H will help me to learn valuable lessons and provide me with opportunities that I wouldn’t be exposed to otherwise.

  • Rowlett new Worthville chief

    Editor:

    Hello, my name is Darrell Rowlett, and I am writing this letter to let you know that I am the new fire chief of the Worthville Volunteer Fire Department and to tell you a little bit about myself and my goals as chief.

  • Keep staples on hand: meat, vegetables, spices

    Hello once again, my friends. As I am typing this article, I have paused frequently to look out the window. It’s 14 degrees outside, and snow is falling heavily. Like most of you I can only think of one thing: being wrapped up in a blanket on the couch watching TV.

  • Glass-plate negatives are valuable assets for studying family history

    I’m sure I’ve mentioned that I have been collecting “orphaned” photos for several years now. I have quite the collection; some day soon, I’m going to have to label them all so it’s clear that none of them are photos of my own family. That could get really confusing for someone coming along after I’m gone.
