  • “Quitting is not an option.”

    We use that phrase a lot, but quitting is usually an option. In fact, you can quit almost anything. Until you cannot. We may indeed find ourselves in a place where quitting really isn’t an option: we have to keep a job that keeps us unhappy, we have to love an unloving person, or we have to keep a promise that does not feel promising. What do we do then?

  • The Northern Kentucky Area Development District and Team Shelter USA are excited to announce that the Joanie Bernard Foundation has awarded $250,000 to support cat spay/neuter only throughout the district’s eight-county region.

    This is the fourth year the Foundation has supported the Northern Kentucky region, and 2018 marked the first year in history that no shelter dogs and cats were euthanized simply because there was no space.

  • Anyone who has made their way downtown knows that big changes have been made that will forever change how our city looks. And while I do not want to sound like a broken record, I think it is important to say this was not a decision that our trustees took lightly.

  • A new school year can bring new challenges and struggles for young people.

    Add on top of that changing bodies and hormones, and it can be a particularly challenging time for teenagers. As parents, we often wonder if our child’s behavior changes are typical or if they are something more that could be cause for concern.

    It’s important for us to familiarize ourselves with the signs and symptoms of depression so we can help our children live happier and healthier lives.

  • Fall is a beautiful time in Kentucky gardens, but it can also be a messy time. Tree leaves turn from green to vibrant fall colors and then drop, creating big piles. Then there are the leaves and spent shoots from our flower beds.

    The way we address our yard waste can have a significant impact on our gardens and on the environment. Gardeners commonly rake up and bag leaves to haul away to yard waste dumps.

    This option, while tidy, uses a lot of energy, both yours and the energy to transport the leaves and mixed garden waste.
