  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]
  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

Welcome to In Focus, readers

Wonderful readers, say hello to In Focus, the newest edition to the BGNews.

We are proud to bring you a new section that every month will focus on a fresh topic of particular interest to you.

Reporters will focus in on various aspects of that topic, bringing you information that will benefit your daily lives.

This month: the Internet in Bowling Green.

Ahhh ‘ the information superhighway. What years ago was a network of thousands of computers around the world has expanded into hundreds of millions, almost a billion users sharing information electronically.

The result has been many advantages.

An answer to every question, a connection to every seller, an inexpensive way to talk with friends around the world, the possibility to check on accounts with the click of a mouse any time of the day and easy ways to conduct business are just a few of the conveniences brought on by the Internet.

But the result has also been some disadvantages.

Hackers, phishers, and other white-collar criminals use the connection they have to users around the world maliciously.

They steal and destroy.

What the future will hold for this amazing and complex resource is not known. What is known is that it will become more useful, and at the same time, harder to protect.

The Internet has become a staple of our lives. We use it for business and for pleasure.

As a result, it is more important than ever to know how it works, how best to utilize it, and how to protect yourself against it. This is where we come in.
