  • Father’s Day is more special this year

    The past few five months I have been terrified.
    Most nights would be filled with restless sleep and recurring nightmares.

    In February, my dad was diagnosed with follicular lymphoma.
    When my mom told my brother and I over the phone that he had cancer I could barely utter a word.
    Although in shock, I asked all the obvious questions.

    What happens next?
    How bad is it?
    Will they be able to get rid of it?

  • Sweet little wife...the critter gitter

    Sometimes there is just no explanation for why things happen the way they do.  And sometimes there is absolutely no explanation as to how we respond to those happenings, no matter how ridiculous the scenario.  One morning last week I thought I would have a nice relaxing day preparing for my granddaughter’s graduation that evening. 
    As many of you know our granddaughter, Lyndi, had finally been able to come home in February from the hospital after several months due to a chronic illness. 

  • After mild winter, extra precaution needed to protect from disease spread animals

    If you’re a fan of snowball fights, sledding or cold nights sitting by a warm fire, the winter of 2016-2017 was not a good one for you.
    If you’re a tick or a mosquito, the mild winter and a wet spring has led to a significant bump in your activity.
    If you’re a bat, it’s unclear yet how the mild winter will impact your activity this summer. Experts think it will lead to a shift in the population, but they aren’t sure if that shift will go up or down.

  • The Wall of Honor

    Back off an old country road, on top of a hill, somewhere off US Route 27 in Pulaski County, Kentucky, there sits a barn.  Inconspicuous at first – there are lots of barns around in this part of the country.

  • Sweet potato planting time
  • Sen. Thayer wishes a safe, happy holiday

    While Memorial Day weekend is a wonderful time for gathering with family and friends for picnics, pool parties, and parades, I write to you with the annual reminder not to forget the true meaning of the event. Memorial Day is a time to remember the brave men and women who have put everything on the line so we may live in freedom in the greatest nation in the world.

  • Looking back at the 2016 election

    Donald Trump shocked the world when he defeated Hillary Clinton to become the 45th president of the United States. Most political experts gave him little chance to win, as Clinton led in the public polls for almost the entire campaign, and was generally seen as the more conventional choice. But when Nov. 8 arrived, Trump sealed a comfortable win in the Electoral College, despite losing the popular vote by almost three million, becoming the first president in U.S. history with no prior government or military experience.
