  • COLUMN: Conway ends example of wasteful spending

    Column as I see ’em …

    Props go to new Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway for the move he made in axing the electrical inspector’s position in favor of contracting the job out to a private contractor.

    The move will save taxpayers at least $15,000 annually that was being wasted on salary and benefits during this protracted economic down turn. The inspection fees collected during the past several years didn’t come close to paying for the position, yet for some unexplained reason taxpayers were forced to continue shelling out money.

  • COLUMN: Good company meets good writing

    If you want to be a good writer, you have to read good writing.

    Professors and advisers preached this message over and over throughout my four years at the University of Kentucky.

    It makes total sense. Kind of like how the saying, “You’re only as good as the company you keep,” makes sense.

    Surrounding yourself with good people makes you want to be a good person or, at the very least, lets you see good examples on a regular basis.

  • COLUMN: Too early to plant, but not too early to plan

    Well, the bug has hit. Even though it’s freezing cold outside this bug survives, some might say it thrives, during the cold winter months. It’s the gardening bug.

    I know, because I have it and many of you do as well. The questions have started coming in about when to start seeds and my answer is that it’s too early.

    Now is the time to plan, though. The seed starting will come soon. Planning your seed starting time starts with what you want to grow. As promised, I’m going to lay out the agronomics of the basic vegetables we grow.

  • COLUMN: Diabetes creates high risk for flu, pneumonia

    Having the flu can be dangerous for anyone. But it is extra risky for people with diabetes or other chronic health problems.

    In general, every person with diabetes needs a flu shot each year. Talk with your doctor about having a flu shot. Flu shots do not give 100 percent protection, but they do make it much harder for you to catch the flu for about 6 months.

    For extra safety, it’s a good idea for the people you live with or spend a lot of time with to get a flu shot, too. You are less likely to get the flu if the people around you don’t have it.

  • COLUMN: Clerk offers more connections to county office

  • COLUMN: Maybe good does win in the end

    When I was in middle school on a band trip, my friend and I stole some bobby pins from a local dime store. A store detective spotted us from about 500 yards away. He marched us up to the front of the store and bawled us out in front of about 100 people. Or so it seemed. I was mortified. But he let us go. I never stole anything again.
