From The Editor

Gary Barg - Editor-in-chief An Interview with Naomi Judd

Raised in the small Kentucky town of Ashland, Naomi first came into public view as half of country musicís most famous mother/daughter team, The Judds.  In 1991, after selling over 20 million albums and videos in a mere seven years and at the pinnacle of their phenomenal career, The Juddsí reign came to an abrupt end. Naomi was diagnosed with hepatitis C, a potentially fatal, chronic liver disease that forced her retirement. Now Naomi is on tour once again with her daughter Wynonna, travelling the country in "The Last Encore Tour".

Editor-in-Chief Gary Barg sat down with Naomi to share some of her unique wisdom, wit and warmth.

Gary Barg:   Iíve noticed over the past couple of years a marked increase in the amount of emails or calls we receive regarding hepatitis C.  Is hepatitis C really that prevalent in America?

Naomi Judd:   It will kill four times as many Americans as AIDS will over the next decade. I feel that whatever kind of ability God has given me, as an entertainer and as a public figure, it is so I can be a representative for others...continued

Carenotes

I have been a caregiver for my wife since a stroke in 2002 left her half paralyzed and unable to speak.  It`s a long and stressful job.

We have lost everything.  She was a banker and I had a construction business.  Together, we made over $200,000.00 per year; now we live off her disability. It just doesn`t seem fair. Is there a way to get paid for being a caregiver?
