  • Once upon a time I had $3 pants.

    Dark, forest-y green rayon pinstriped dress slacks, with teeny flecks of black in the fabric. Regularly $45 marked down to $14.29 with an additional 30 percent off, then another 70 percent off -- $3 pants!

    I was so excited about my purchase that when I got them home I immediately put them in a place of honor in my closet and sat on my bed to admire my precious find.

  • Well it’s that time of year. High school basketball tournaments are under way. The NCAA tourneys are getting kicked off. It’s an awesome time of year! But there is one thing that we all know for sure. Most sports teams have a star player. Get the ball to him and he’ll score. Get him up at bat with two men on base and he’ll hit a homerun.

  • The Arbor Day Foundation is making it easy for everyone to celebrate the arrival of spring by planting trees.

    Everyone who joins the nonprofit Arbor Day Foundation in March 2016 with a $10 donation will receive 10 free white flowering dogwood trees through the Foundation’s Trees for America campaign.

    White flowering dogwoods will add beauty to your home throughout the year, they are known for their showy spring flowers, scarlet autumn foliage and red berries that attract song birds during winter.

  • Many of the items thrown in the trash have value.

    Plastic and glass bottles, aluminum and steel cans, old newspapers and used cardboard boxes have a cash value, but in Kentucky, these items are thrown away more often than being recycled. 

    According to the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection, Kentucky only recycles about a third of our solid waste (aka trash). 

  • March is National Nutrition Month, a celebration of eating smart for better health. This year’s theme is Savor the Flavor of Eating Right, reminding us that food gives us more than just the varying nutrients it contains.

    Sharing meals with friends and family, passing along traditions, and enjoying the taste of our favorite foods – these are all ways that food means more than just what we eat. Savoring the flavor encourages us to practice mindful eating, too.
