  • The words from 2 Timothy chapters 3 and 4 were written by the Apostle Paul to a young pastor named Timothy. In these chapters the Apostle Paul told Pastor Timothy what was going on right then in their day and some things that would happen in the future. I think we may be living in the generation that the Apostle Paul prophesied about almost 2,000 years ago to Pastor Timothy.  Let us take a look at what the Apostle Paul told Pastor Timothy.

  • Dear Savvy Senior,
    I have been enrolled in the same Medicare prescription drug plan for three years now, but my pharmacist told me I should look for a new plan during the open enrollment period that would fit my needs a little better. What’s the easiest way to do this?

    Dear Need,

  • How about love, a sweet love, a give and take love? I like that kind of love, the kind that I can receive, you know a “take” kind of love. But, hold on, you must not have read closely enough to read the first word in that kind of love...give.
    Did you expect it to come your way without giving? I sure hope not, and if you did you may not be able to receive…take.

  • Have you ever heard the expression, “Practice makes Perfect?”  Well apparently it doesn’t work for me!  I’ve been walking for over 50 years and the other day I just tripped.  I wish I could say I tripped over something, but I looked, nothing there.  I just stumbled over my own two feet after 50 years of practice.  Now some of you might say it’s because I’m getting a little older, but I have to admit, I’ve been stumbling and tripping occasionally all along!

  • A recent U.S. president stated on at least one occasion that character doesn’t count. Well, maybe that’s his personal opinion. But it matters to me, and also for most of those with whom I have asked if it really matters to them.

  • Dear Savvy Senior,
    I’m interested in tracking down some old friends I’ve lost touch with over the years but could use some help. What tips or resources can you recommend to help me find them?

  • A reading from Luke 17:11-19:
    Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. As he was going into a village, 10 men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!” When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed. One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him — and he was a Samaritan.

  • Apple trees are popular additions to home landscapes because of their fruit production. However, many home gardeners are not prepared for the onslaught of diseases that bombard the trees every year. To minimize risk of disease and reduce reliance on preventative fungicide applications, home gardeners may consider selecting disease resistant cultivars, said Nicole Ward Gauthier, extension plant pathologist with the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment.

  • The United States Department of Agriculture has begun distributing Conservation Reserve Program annual rental payments to participants across the country.
