  • Dear Savvy Senior,
    What can you tell me about longevity annuities? I come from a family with long life expectancies and I would like to protect myself from running out of money in my old age. Looking Ahead

    Dear Looking
    If you’re worried about outliving your retirement savings, longevity annuities are definitely an option worth looking into.

  • It seems that the tradition of turkey on the day we refer to as Thanksgiving Day will be here forever. I noticed this week at Country Mart in Taylorsville (my favorite place to shop) the huge display of “gobblers” from small to large, just in time to have our mouths water at the soon-to-be experience of that aroma that beats all other aromas ... roasted turkey.
    But with all the opportunities to have our taste buds stimulated, let’s now turn our attention to the topic: “what are you thankful for, not just on Thanksgiving Day, but every day?”

  • Last week, I shared a recipe for pumpkin whoopie pies, which I discovered through a search on Pinterest, an online visual search tool. When I was looking around Pinterest for pumpkin whoopie pie recipes, I found another recipe for cookies made with pumpkin that I decided I had to try: snickerdoodle and pumpkin cream cheese sandwiches. Since I did not use the entire can of pumpkin for the whoopie pies, I had just enough left to make half of a batch of pumpkin cream cheese.

  • The Campbellsville University Concert Chorus will present part one of Mendelssohn’s “Elijah” on Tuesday, Nov. 27 at 8 p.m. in the sanctuary of Campbellsville Baptist Church, located at 530 North Central Avenue, Campbellsville.
    Chelsey Robinson, a freshman from Taylorsville, will perform singing soprano with Campbellsville University’s Concert Chorus.
    “Elijah” is a major oratorio by Mendelssohn that tells the story of the biblical character, Elijah, in various historical settings.

  • Several veterans visited the classroom of Sherry Baird at Spencer County Elementary School last week as part of Grandparents Day and Veterans Day festivities. Pictured from left are McKenzie Woods with her grandfather Ray Thornton who served in WWII, Kelsey Lear with her grandfather Darrel Flener who served during the Cold War, Chase Goodlett with his grandfather Danny Altizer who served in Vietnam, and Micah McCarthy with his grandfather, William Addison who also served in Vietnam.

  • Sometime this holiday season, a service man or woman serving overseas, in a military hospital or another location will receive a card from one of Spencer County Elementary teacher Sharon Baird’s fifth grade students and will know that some of the country’s youngest boys and girls appreciate the sacrifice.

  • Spencer Countian Scott Travis has been named as a finalist for the Kentucky Farm Bureau 2012 Farmer of the Year award.

  • As the temperature drops, many insects will search for shelter for the winter months — many times in private residences. This year, people may notice a new insect coming indoors.
    This insect is the brown marmorated stink bug, and University of Kentucky entomologists already are receiving calls from homeowners concerning its appearance and offensive odor, said Ric Bessin, extension entomologist with the UK College of Agriculture.
