  • Are all financial advisors created equal?

    Recently one of my clients received in the mail a private dinner invitation from a financial advisor. The advisor claimed that he will show attendees how to keep their money safe from market declines and provide a way to receive a lifetime income that can’t be outlived.

    A food diary isn’t just important on a daily basis to monitor progress, it could be essential to your long-term progress years from now. Every time you introduce a new variable to your diet (This also goes for training and supplementation) you should keep note, outlining how your body is responding on a daily basis.

  • Fall brings annual festivals across Kentucky

    Other states may have their festivals, but few if any can compete with Kentucky when it comes to the sheer number and themes we have.

    If it’s a local product that you can eat, listen to, burn or ride, there is a good chance a community somewhere in the commonwealth has dedicated at least a weekend to it.

    It is often seen as the unofficial end to the summer, but it’s important to look beyond that as we celebrate the upcoming three-day weekend.

  • Rand highlights benefits of Kentucky Community and Technical College

    It has been a little more than two decades since the General Assembly passed far-reaching reforms of our public postsecondary schools, and without a doubt one of the most successful elements of that work was the creation of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System.

  • Mitchell reflects on what she likes about Carroll Co.


    Good and graciousness of Carroll County, especially Carrollton, as I am only a visitor here.

    I actually moved back to this area after 35 years because I had such fond memories of spending summers in Carrollton as a youngster, every summer for six weeks till the age of 18 years old when I was a lifeguard at the beach of General Butler State Resort Park. Shame the beach was taken away. I still attend this state park often as I have a brick for my deceased husband at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial site. A great work of effort for your city and county.
