      As we bear down on the end of the 2018 Regular Session, it’s become crunch time in Frankfort. This week has seen many bills pass both the full House and House Committees, but there has been a clear focus on public safety and the brave Kentuckians who dedicate their lives to protecting us each and every day. 

  • Few bills have completed journey this session

      FRANKFORT -- Since the budget and pensions are what we hear about almost daily, it is certainly understandable if the public thinks that is what this year’s legislative session is all about.

  • Food Check-Out Week

     The cost of food in America remains affordable.

     Roadways across the district range from wet pavement to completely covered pavement.

    With snow continuing to fall, some routes that have been cleared are getting covered again.

    All of our counties are salting and plowing at this time with the exception of Franklin County. They have reported very little snow and wet pavement conditions.

  • A new era is set to start for Lady Charger softball

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – When the 2017 softball season ended for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers, it was expected that there would be one more year in this ‘era’ for the program.

    Instead, it’s a new era for the red and gold and head coach Ricky Hoffman after standout pitcher/hitter Taylor Roby decided over the summer to graduate from Bullitt East and enroll at the University of Louisville in January, bypassing her senior season with the Lady Chargers.

    The good news is that Hoffman has kept his spirits up.
