  • “Well,” said Carla Smith, adjusting a hat at a jaunty  angle on the head of Leukemia patient Judy Adler, “It all started in October, which was designated Breast Cancer Awareness Month.”

    That's when Smith, a mamographer, RT(R)(M), at Jewish Hospital Shelbyville, started a drive to collect hats and scarves for local ladies undergoing chemotherapy.

  • We’d never spent a Christmas season more than six inches apart from at least one member of our immediate family – until last year.

    We find ourselves nearly 8,000 miles away – literally on the other side of the world. We sit not by a decorated tree but in a chilly, dimly lit and officious conference room.

  • New Year's Day is sort of like a Monday.

    A new year has many things in common with a new week. People vow they won't overeat, they will exercise, they will quit smoking, and so on.

    But now we’re a week into the new year. Have you kept your resolutions? Can you expect them to be kept for the rest of the year?

    One of the best things about January is all the good catalogs that come in the mail.

     It is much easier to believe that spring will come again when you have a stack of catalogs that show glossy pictures of fruits, vegetables and flowers.  The extra time spent indoors by the fire also allows us to spend some time plotting and planning what we want to add to the garden in 2009.

  • The farm looks like a storm hit recently, but it’s really just my husband’s new deer deterrent technique.  It seems to be working.

    In the past we have forgone the Irish Spring soap, human hair and coyote urine for more reliable barriers.  Tomato cages, tobacco stakes, wire, spiral plastic trunk wrap, and, yes, an occasional arrangement of lawn chairs have created distance between rutting and browsing deer.

  • A swimmer from Shelby County had the ultimate thrill for her sport last week: She stood on a pedestal and heard the strains of the Star Spangled Banner after winning two gold medals at an international competition.

    Danielle Wilkerson of Fisherville brought home gold in the 25-meter backstroke and in the 25-meter freestyle at the Down Syndrome World Swimming Championship, a biennial competition in Albufeira, Spain, where athletes from 24 countries competed.
