  • Jan. 1 presents a new challenge each year. We feel compelled to set up resolutions, which sound so good and usually fall by the wayside very quickly.

    The problem with New Year’s resolutions is the process used to create them.

    Most people create them as a response to pressure other people put on them. It is one of those “should” things. We “should” make New Year’s resolutions. There is not much commitment to this style of goal setting.

    KENTUCKY WEATHER.Well, we sure have had such a mixture of crazy Kentucky weather lately. Thunderstorms with lots of lightning, thunder and heavy rains and then back to cold weather. Some people’s homes were without electricity for awhile. Thank you to all the Kentucky Utility and Nolin employees for their prompt attention and long hours getting service back to everyone.
