  • Godman enjoys documenting life, and thinks you will, too!

    I have been interested in documenting my life since I was a young child. I believe it was my obsession with Laura Ingalls Wilder that made me want to preserve my memories for the future. I hoped that I could write about my childhood the way she wrote about hers.

  • COLUMN: Healthy anger

    Is anger OK? When is it not OK? Well, that’s a good question but I’m not sure 1 can answer it! I can say, however, that anger appears to be “normal.”

  • PHOTO: Windsor named July’s Healthy Hero

    Samantha Windsor is all about living a healthy, fit lifestyle. In 1999, she decided to get in shape. She tried all sorts of exercises, but she found nothing that she could stick to until January 2000, when she was introduced to Jazzercise. For three years she was a student, losing 60 pounds. In November 2003, she became an instructor, followed the next year by owning her own classes in Shelbyville and eventually in Taylorsville. Classes in Taylorsville take place at Risen Lord Lutheran Church, 5138 Taylorsville Road. For more information about Jazzercise, call 502-321-6402.

    “Will he/she ever amount to anything?”
    This question has been presented many times in my four decades as a professional. The parents address this issue when it appears that their child is not performing up to “standard,” which usually means that the child is not keeping up with classroom expectations.
