Research on the right bug repellent for kids

This is updated research on bug repellents like DEET, and how to be safe, especially with children. See specific details in the tips at the end of this article.

Bug repellents do more than just prevent itchy bites and save your camping trip -- in regions where mosquito-borne illnesses like malaria and dengue fever are endemic, repellents literally saves lives.

Among today's bug repellent options, the active ingredient DEET, with its decades-long track record for safety and effectiveness, is still widely considered the gold standard for bug spray. Repellents that contain compounds like picaridin and IR3535 are also effective against mosquitoes and other biting insects, though both of these options lack DEET's very long history on the market. And oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE), not to be confused with lemon eucalyptus essential oil, is common in so-called natural products.

He may be napping, and the message on the sunglasses may say, "Don't be afraid of little ole me," but Moose is a light sleeper and a quick responder, so care is advised when entering his and Hailey's space.

Letter: The real heroes

Chris Bennett writes:
So the real heroes in this story is our local utility workers. Tyler Edwards is our local KU service man, I forwarded that story to him Saturday morning and he took care of it Monday. Tyler is from Green County where his father Mike works for Taylor County RECC. Both are great to deal with, top notch guys!

We are really lucky to have good electrical utility workers in our area, KU and Taylor County RECC both have a great crew of guys that to be honest have a real tough job. When the weather is terrible, when it is the coldest, when it is the wettest, when it is the hottest and it is almost always at night. They are out trying to get our lights back on. As the local electrical inspector I deal with these guys on a daily basis and trust me when I tell you that as a community we are blessed to have the guys that we do.

Carol Perkins: Who was that?

Previous Column: When the lights go out

By Carol Perkins

I rushed out of one store at the mall and headed to another when a familiar face swept by me. I stopped and turned back, and she did the same.

"I haven't seen you forever," I said, and we hugged. During our exchange of pleasantries, I quickly recognized that this woman did not know me from Adam. She was looking for clues to discover the identity of the woman who seemed to know her so well.

"I'm her husband," the man walking beside her said.

I should have introduced myself at that moment, but I assumed she would do that. She couldn't because she was lost! I continued to talk about the time I visited their home.

Seeing through the Eyes of Others

The Kentucky Wilderness, Daniel Trabue (1760-1840), John Muir (1830-1914), and Marco Sioli, in 2024

By Phil Hanna

Twenty-five years after his February 1999 visit to Columbia, Marco Sioli, a professor of American history from Italy, returned to Columbia. On May 28th and 29th, 2024, he gave two talks: 1. Memory of the Wilderness: Daniel Trabue and the Frontier of Kentucky, at the Genealogy and History Center, and 2. From Transcendentalism to Environmentalism: John Muir in Kentucky, at the Trabue-Russell House. He also revisited the Anderson Cemetery where Daniel Trabue and his wife, Mary Haskins Trabue, are buried; the cemetery, now rehabilitated, restored, stones repaired and marked with a new sign.

Sioli's very first encounter with Adair County, came from his 1998 article, Huguenot Traditions in the Mountains of Kentucky: Daniel Trabue's Memories (Journal of American History). In that work, Sioli envisioned Kentucky through the eyes and writing of Daniel Trabue, who in his journal (1827), used words and phrases such as sublime, rivers, hills, spruce, pine ...everything looking new, as if entering into the garden of Eden. Trabue's grandfather had fled France in 1687 due to the persecution of Protestants. For Trabue, the wilderness of Kentucky represented freedom, danger, opportunity, and the possibility of life in a new world. Trabue's words were Sioli's first impressions of Kentucky.

His second talk, on John Muir, a naturalist and botanist, was at the Trabue-Russell House in which Sioli described Kentucky through the eyes of John Muir and his 1867 walk through Kentucky.

Caregiver's Thank You

By Diane R Wallace

The death of my mother, Joyce Youngs, only months from laying my sister, Carol Peasley to rest, has brought an unexpected onslaught of unexpected community support.

A special thank you to my friends and former co-workers from the Adair County Health Department (Rhonda, Cindy, Brooke, Pam and Melody); the Caregivers Support Group (Linda and Betty), my mothers best friend, Joyce Evans, who faithfully made regular visits with mom, Joy Miller who helped me maintain sanity; Janet Wright (Greensburg) who tended to mother to the very end; the staff at Bank of Columbia; Hosparus (Christy, Sarah, Robin, and Deanna). Also thank you for the many check-ins with text messages, phone calls and cards with whom I have shared my struggles and whom have also shared their own struggles with me.

My family, all rural New York transplants: brother-in-law (Ken Peasley), my father (Richard A. Youngs) sister (Carol Peasley, and now my mother (Joyce Youngs) are resting in peace here in Columbia, KY. I am so thankful for the compassion and friendship received from this community. God Bless All of You.

Letter: THANK YOU! Walmart

By Roldcat

Yesterday, I went shopping at Walmart. When I checked out in the self-checkout line, I neglected to pick up all of my bagged packages. In doing so, I left behind 4 items that were valued at $22.00. The bagged merchandise was picked up and taken by the next customer in line. I called Walmart and let them know of my error in leaving the merchandise on the checkout counter. They told me to bring my receipt back to the store on my next visit.

I returned to Walmart this morning. A manager took my receipt and reviewed a video tape of my transaction at the self-checkout register. They confirmed that I had left the bagged merchandise on the counter and that it was picked up by the next customer in line. The manager instructed me to re-pick the items from the store shelves, they were bagged up for me at the customer service desk and I was on my way without having to re-purchase the items.

I want to thank Walmart and the manager very much for helping me get through this issue that I caused for myself, without any monetary loss on my part. I know that Walmart is a multi-billion dollar corporation that can handle the $22.00 loss a lot easier than I could and I appreciate that they were willing to do this for me.

It would really be nice if the customer that picked up my items probably by mistake, would be honest and return the merchandise back to Walmart so that they in turn would not suffer the loss as well.
