  • One of my favorite holidays is near, Thanksgiving, the time when family and friends get together without obligation and share gratitude. It’s a time to reflect on the year and tally up the bounty of blessings.

    Last month I was giving a talk in Delaware and a lady came up afterward to tell me it sounded good but she had nothing to be thankful for. As she rattled off her woes and all the things that had happened to her, I just had the urge to hug her. And I did.

  • Leslie Santos, 38, is half the woman she used to be, but more complete than ever. What she’s lost physically, she has gained in spiritual and emotional strength.

    Two years ago, Santos began her weight loss journey that has surpased a physical transformation and led her to spiritual, mental and emotional health, she said.

    She’s always struggled with her weight but when her marriage ended it became more than that, she said.

  • Whether you like a sport where the ball is bounced down the hardwood or driven down the field to an end zone, this time of year is time for tailgating and parties to watch the big game.

    To have the best sports viewing experience you need a few key things. You need a great TV, a group of people who won’t talk through the entire game and food. In fact, great game day snacks might need to move to the top of that list.

  • I first became acquainted with this month’s One of Hardin County’s Finest Cooks when Stone Hearth hosted a “Mama and Me” brunch. That’s when I met Faye Fehnel, a cook at the Elizabethtown restaurant.

    Her love of cooking began working with her mother on the family farm and preparing meals for farm workers.

  • Eight years ago, Hurricane Katrina took many things away from former Louisiana resident Doug Frederick: his home, his security and most of his personal belongings.

    But the devastating storm also gave him something: an appreciation for each day and the motivation to volunteer.

    “You know where you’ve been, so you know you can give back,” Frederick said.

  • Most people are aware of the dangers of driving while intoxicated, but many do not know drowsiness also impairs judgment, performance and reaction times just like alcohol and drugs.

    KENTUCKYWEATHER. Hmmm snow flurries, a little sleet in October? Yes, some areas in Kentucky got some week before last. We also got some rain and a few thunderstorms. My goodness we live in a mixed up weather state.

    I have noticed the colorful leaves more on the trees but they aren’t staying on the branches very long. 

    TIME CHANGE. Did you remember to set your clock back 1 hour? We are now on what some of us call “slow time.” Shorter daylight hours, longer nights.
