    I’m going to have to give kudos to the city officials for their recent decision to use Bourbon County Jail inmates for work needed around town.
    The prisoners have to be supervised by a police officer or someone who has gone through a 3-hour training session at the jail.
    Obviously, these prisoners are going to be those in jail for non-violent offenses.
    The county has frequently used prisoners for trash pickup along the highways. But as far as I know, this is the first time prisoners’ talents have been tapped to help out with other projects.

  • Tips to look your best when dressing casually

    (StatePoint) From fitness conscious consumers to busy moms who are always on the go, casual athletic attire is becoming a socially acceptable and on-trend style. In fact, it’s so popular, it carries its own name: “athleisure.”
    It may sound like a piece of cake to dress in casual and relaxed clothing. However, avoiding a “just rolled out of bed look” is not so simple. If you find that comfy yoga pants or joggers are increasingly becoming a staple in your wardrobe, consider these tips to ensure you always look put together when sporting them.

  • Seek and you shall find a relationship with God

    In our busy, over-loaded and booked lives it is hard for us as individuals to develop real close relationships, so we friend-up people on Facebook (some of whom we do not know), or follow someone on Twitter to gain friends.
    We live on our cell phones and often think these ways will fill the void in our lives.
    We want people to like us for who we are and to not get so close as to find out our weaknesses or failings or even those skeletons in our closets. We want these relationships on our terms with no other strings attached or we will drop them like a hot potato.

    (Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy is off this week, hopefully NOT working. This is one of her favorite columns from 2009.)

    Today I scrubbed my kitchen floor, on my knees with a bucket of sudsy water and a brush, “Cinderella-style.”
    After that I polished all the stainless steel and rubbed the countertops with stuff that made them gleam. Then I vacuumed all the wayward popcorn from underneath the couch cushions and cleaned both bathrooms.
