  • The other night my health insurance company called me and left a message. I guess that’s a good thing, but I wouldn’t really know because I could only understand about one word in ten.

    Part of the problem was the connection. It was really bad. I know it wasn’t my answering machine. And yes, I actually have an answering machine, not just voicemail. Anyway, other messages are clear and easily understood, so the connection problem was not on my end.

  • In the late 1970s, back when I was a young performer, my dream was to always work at Circus Circus in Las Vegas. This was actually a childhood dream, a goal I was trying to reach and aspire to. It was the desire of my heart. At this point in my life, my relationship with the Lord was okay, but not on fire. I was definitely brought up with the fear of God. Knowing him on a personal level was a little out of my scope at that point.

  • Western Kentucky is centered amid one of the largest cicada emergences in more than 100 years.

    Experts studying this season’s crop of the periodic winged insects say two massive broods, or hatchings, are occurring simultaneously in the Midwestern U.S.

    The Mississippian and Kansan broods are now in the short-lived emergent and mass chorus stages of their lives, according to Dr. John Cooley of the Periodical Cicada Mapping Project.

    In Murray and other parts of the region, it comes as a rather noisy coincidence.

  • What a difference three weeks can make.

    As April came to an end, Kentucky farmers were almost a month behind in planting corn, with only 7 percent planted, well behind the same time last year (29 percent) and far below the five-year average (45 percent).

    But according to the latest report from the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service, 85 percent of corn in the Commonwealth has been planted, exceeding last year at the same time and the five-year average, both at 73 percent.

  • In 2010 I wrote “we should use more crape myrtles in Kentuckiana, they are not just for warm, temperate climes; in fact, there are a great many that go unbothered by an average winter in our parts.” Well, famous last words, right? I guess the operative words are “average winter!”

    Crape myrtles are one of the last of the summer blooming shrubs to break dormancy in the spring. In fact, many fear that their crape myrtles are dead because they are so slow to leaf out. But this year it just might be the case.

  • Dear Savvy Senior,

    What are the symptoms of a stroke? My 66-year-old aunt had a stroke a few months ago and neither she nor my uncle had a clue it was happening.
