  • Dear Savvy Senior,
    What can you tell me about reverse mortgages? I was considering one last year, but now I hear they are more difficult to get.

  • In your lifetime, have you ever experienced the emotional highs or lows that caused you to do things that hurt you or those around you? Those emotions often feel like a ping-pong ball bouncing across a table, and then we begin to wonder, “What is wrong with me?” Well, we all have moods.

    Illegal to Sell Quail For Food, Is Ruling
    The Kentucky Game and Fish Commission, at its regular March meeting, approved a regulation barring the sale of quail obtained from any source for food in Kentucky.
    The action was taken, Earl Wallace, Commissioner of the Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources, said, “to prevent sale of native quail under the guise of being out-of-state wildlife shipped into the state as food.”



  • Spring in Spencer County is a great time of greening and warming, but it’s also a time when livestock producers need to watch out for grass tetany, also called spring tetany or grass staggers. Some people also refer to it as wheat pasture poisoning, winter tetany or lactation tetany. Regardless, it’s a condition caused by an abnormally low level of magnesium in the blood.

  • I want to say spring has sprung, but it hasn’t. I have 160 Freedom Ranger chicks coming in the mail next week and lambs hitting the ground (don’t worry, that’s shepherd talk for lambs being born). I want warm not just for the new 2-legged and 4-legged arrivals but for my potatoes, onions and kale. I need warm before I can even think of putting a tomato, bean or cucumber out in the garden.

  • I am a fairly organized but not necessarily neat guy. For example my keys go in the same place each night. That spot may get filled with other scraps of paper or coins, but my keys will always be there. That way I can always find my keys.Most of us do the same sort of thing; we find ways to keep things from getting lost. The other day I went looking for a little gadget (a digital recorder) I always keep on my desk. I use it every Sunday, so I keep it in one place. Now my desk is a sort of natural disaster area. But I can usually find what I want.

  • A reading from John 16:32-33:“Behold, the hour is coming, indeed it has come, when you will be scattered, each to his own home, and will leave me alone. Yet I am not alone, for the Father is with me. I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
