  • WHAT WE THINK: Season's first snow is no match

    It took almost three more months than last winter, but we finally got our first snow of the season over the weekend.

    And while roads in other counties struggled, Interstate 64 and the roads around Shelby County appeared clear and easy to navigate.

    The same could be said for Monday’s short but impressive snow shower.

    For that we commend our city, county and state road crews for their long hours, preparation and commitment to our safety.

    Controlling our factors with our fork

    Dear Editor,

    Must we really resolve to improve our diets or exercise routines in the New Year, in order to increase longevity or improve quality of life?

  • MARTIN: Finding time for a healthier taco night

    Iused to think that New Year’s resolutions were silly, a weak-minded way to make myself change.

    If I wanted to change during the year, I’d just do it.

    And in my younger years, I would. It was easy, I’d just implement whatever change I needed to make.

    More exercise – no problem. I’ll start running today and hit the gym tomorrow.

    Read more – check. I’ll just set aside an hour each day to devote to my newest book.
