  • Whether you’re hosting a party or just enjoying some down time with friends, delicious, slimmed-down snacks and small plates made with lean pork are the perfect solution for the health-conscious host.

  • Dear Savvy Senior
    What types of vaccinations are recommended for seniors? I know about flu shots, but what else is recommended and what’s covered by Medicare?  
    Cheap Shot Sally

    Dear Sally:
    Most people think that vaccinations are just for kids, but adults, especially seniors, need their shots, too. Here’s a breakdown of what vaccines the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends for adults age 50 and older, and how they’re covered by Medicare.

  • When looking for inspiration on the grill, nothing beats the tender, juicy pork chop. This hearty protein is a versatile canvas for a wide range of mouthwatering rubs, glazes and marinades that will ignite taste buds with bold new flavors.  

  • The monthly magazine, Readers Digest, for many years had a regular part of the magazine entitled: Laughter, The World’s Best Medicine. Under this heading were some humorous stories and jokes.
    There is something to be said about this statement that is absolutely true: good, hearty laughter appears to help display a healthy disposition. It has also often been stated that it relaxes our body system, we feel better and we may even (how nice this would be) grumble and complain less.

  • Congratulations to Lilli Hanik of Fisherville, Liz Walker of Mount Eden, and Courtney Jeffiers of Taylorsville for receiving the 4-H Middle School Award at 4-H Teen Summit on Saturday, March 17th at the Kentucky Leadership Center in Jabez.

  • I am only now recovering — it has been four days since Andy and I planted out 100 asparagus crowns. Planting asparagus is an investment on all accounts — time, labor, money, patience — and then the big payoff, which is fresh asparagus for two months each spring right from your own garden.

  • Without looking at the calendar, Kentuckians might easily be fooled into thinking it is early June; but in fact, spring has just begun. After the warmest winter on the record books in the Bluegrass state, spring has sprung very early causing some University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension specialists to gaze eerily back on a similar weather pattern in 2007.

  • A group from First Assembly of God poses for a picture in Henryville, Ind. The group met up with other Assembly of God churches from the area and traveled to Henryville to work with Samaritan’s Purse in the tornado cleanup efforts.

  • A few weeks ago a series of devastating tornadoes hit communities in Kentucky and Indiana.  In just a few seconds, life changed dramatically for the families who live in those areas.  Homes and schools gone, lives turned upside down, in some cases lives lost.  My family survived a tornado several years ago and I know the physical and emotional toll it can take.

  • Revelation 3:20 says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will sup with him and he with me.”
    I believe many people have opened the door and invited Jesus in their heart, but many times they forget to make Jesus the lord of their life because they start thinking about a sin they cannot give up. If this happens, sin will devour you.
