  • Keeton offers three chili recipes to try this fall

    Hello once again, my friends. It’s crazy to think that we are already back to talking about cool/cold weather foods and all the wonderful comfort they bring. But time stands still for no man, they say, and the fact is, it’s time to curl up with some tasty, hearty food and embrace the season.

    With cool weather here there’s only one subject really to talk about when it comes to food: chili. The ultimate fall and winter food is back and, frankly, I couldn’t be any happier about it.

  • Celebrate the holidays locally this season
  • Kentucky continues to see progress after educational reform in 1990

    When taking the long view, Kentucky has covered quite a bit of ground since we overhauled elementary and secondary education in 1990.

    Several years ago, for example, a study out of Harvard University found that only seven states saw their schools make greater progress during the previous two decades.  Education Week’s most recent Quality Counts study, meanwhile, ranks Kentucky 16th when focused just on academic achievement.

  • Fall is a great time to evaluate goals, plan for the future

    Fall is here! It is pumpkin spice latte, sweater, boots, football, chili, apple picking, pumpkin patch weather. Well at least the calendar says so, even if the temperature gauge does not. I bet if you went back to see all of my columns published in October, they will all start with some sort of homage to fall, my favorite time of the year.

  • Celebrate retired teachers Oct. 15-21

    Editor:

    The week of Oct. 15-21, 2017 has been proclaimed Retired Teachers Week. Also, the 2014 General Assembly officially adopted House Resolution 19 declaring the third week in October to be Kentucky Retired Teachers Appreciation Week.

  • Help available for victims of domestic violence

    Each fall, just a few weeks before Domestic Violence Awareness Month begins in October, many of the nation’s programs that serve those who have been battered or abused take a real-time census of their work over a 24-hour period.  By focusing on an otherwise normal day, we can better see the tragic reach of one of society’s most enduring problems.

  • Arney: Under eating can slow down fat loss

    When you begin a fat loss transformation, you are likely to be feeling highly motivated, so it can definitely be tempting to under eat and do excessive amounts of cardio to get a “head start.” I understand all of those things and the reasons for doing it, however it will potentially slow down your fat loss and it will eventually have a negative impact on your overall body composition.
