  • Giving gift of prosperity to Kentucky

     FRANKFORT - As the song goes, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year.”

    The Christmas season always evokes a spirit of thankfulness and giving, when families come together to celebrate the reason for the season.

    And the New Year’s holiday is often a time to start with a slate clean, hopefulness toward starting something new like giving up smoking or losing weight.

    In this holiday season for the Commonwealth we can be thankful in some ways, but in others we are hoping for a new start.
