  • Mix cardio and weight training in your plans

    When it comes to burning off fat, which is more effective cardio or weight training? Most of you probably answered that with cardio.

    Editor:

    Hundreds of thousands of young Americans are serving in our military to preserve our way of life, and yet fewer and fewer of our citizens are participating in our democracy. May 19 is primary election day when Kentuckians will be selecting candidates for Governor, Commissioner of Agriculture, and other constitutional officers.
