    In between, we endured more snow and saw the emergency workers and road crews of the state working hard to keep us safe. 

    With 100 Representatives covering all corners of the state, and the state police and transportation officials encouraging motorists to stay off the roads, House Leadership exercised caution and delayed legislative proceedings for the House of Representatives. 

  • Students have choice of reaching greatness

     One of my favorite leadership researchers is Jim Collins, who wrote a classic business book called Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap and Others Don’t.

    In that book, you can find the following sentence: “Greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness, it turns out, is largely a matter of conscious choice, and discipline.

    This can be applied to far more than making a business successful.

  • Abbreviated sports page due to fire, snow

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The last issue of February is not exactly the time of year when the Sports Editor puts out an abbreviated sports page, but the past week has been like no other over the past 38 years.
