    Have you heard about the worse environmental invader now coming our way – bush honeysuckle? Drive around metro areas in early spring and you will find how this bush has taken over the landscape. It is first to leaf out in spring and creates a thick shade bush up to 12 feet tall.

    Whether that next chapter is the start of a career or post-secondary education or training, the Kentucky Career Center – Lincoln Trail (KCC-LT) wants new graduates to know about free services that can help them start strong.

  • Do something good

    Our community is full of really, really kind people.
    I’m reminded of that daily.
    Sometimes, it’s the small gestures of kindness I notice. Like the lady who works at the convenient store who gave me an unexpected but very much appreciated compliment recently while I was buying my cup of coffee. Or, the man who stopped me while I was walking down the sidewalk last week to share some positive feedback about something I wrote for the paper recently. Those small gestures of kindness can make a big difference in someone’s day.

  • Watch for motorcycles and don’t throw mowed grass on road

    Since spring has arrived, and wonderful motorcycle weather is here, I'd like to put out some reminders to help make motorcycling safe.
    Please do not go out and buy your teenager a crotch rocket (sport/racing bike) or any other kind of bike until he/she takes the Kentucky Motorcycle Rider Education Program. Without proper training, these bikes can be death machines.

  • Seeing Seth smile

    Some stories I write for the newspaper really stick with me.
    The story I wrote about Seth Martinez, which was in last week’s edition of the Enterprise, is one of those stories.
    After learning more about Seth and how he was abused, I was disgusted, angered and heartbroken. How someone could abuse a child is something I will never understand. As a parent, I understand that caring for children can be stressful and, at times, maddening. But, it is never okay to abuse a child. Never.
