Radon Action Month


Seems a little late to be getting this word out, but the Governor’s office has just issued a notice that January is ‘Radon Action Month.’


The Kentucky Department for Public Health is encouraging residents to start the year by testing your home for radon, a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas that can enter homes through cracks in the floor or spaces around utility pipes and can accumulate to unsafe levels unless properly mitigated.


Kentucky homeowners who want to learn more about the dangers of radon gas or who are interested in finding out how to test their homes for radon may contact the Kentucky Radon Program at (502) 564-4856 or access their website.  Free Radon test kits are available through select county health departments and the Department for Public Health’s website.  


Free Facebook game


Ok, Suzy doesn’t normally fall for these, but she was curious – and it turned out to be fun (even though Suzy is definitely not on the list of top scorers, or even close).


It’s the Arby’s FRESH CATCH game on Facebook. Prizes include a $20 Home Depot Gift Card, $20 Bass Pro Shop Gift Card, $20 online retailer gift card and $10 Arby’s Gift Card.


You can enter daily through February 13 at Arby’s Facebook page. No purchase necessary.


Try the game and you’ll have a new appreciation for your grandkids’ motor skills! The more fish you catch in one minute, the better your score. Practice makes better, sometime.
