  • Since November is National Diabetes Awareness Month, it’s a good time to consider your risk of developing diabetes. More than 395,867 adult Kentuckians — or 12.75 percent of the state’s adult population — have diabetes. It’s estimated that one-third of those cases are undiagnosed.

    The Kentucky Diabetes Prevention & Control Program (KDPCP) estimates that 553,286 adult Kentuckians age 40-74 have pre-diabetes — a whopping 36.3 percent. Pre-diabetes is a major risk factor for diabetes, heart attack and stroke.

  • Picking out the perfect Christmas tree is serious business for me. Some may find it a trivial chore, but I want a tree that will be worth the effort of cleaning, moving furniture, hauling boxes, lights, stepladders and more. But once the mundane is done then the fun begins. Each ornament that adorns the tree has a story to tell about my grandparents, parents or me. The tree is indeed important because it holds the past. And it must hold the past, in the form of many beloved ornaments, securely and style.

  • “Spunk” dramatizes the brief tales of three African-American women who have courage, one tale leads to death but freedom, another is a jocular tale of spiteful revenge, and the other is a love triangle which ends happily. As the program states, the time is “Round about long ’go;” the place is “O, way down nearby.” The narrators are Blues Speak Woman and Guitar Man. Sometimes they interact with the scenes; other times they become a Greek chorus who comment on the action, or pronounce judgments.
