  • Thanks for agencies for their help in time of need

     A wild week to say the least.

    First, you get the snow and the cold.

    That is always a situation of chaos.

    Then, fire strikes the back portion of our business.

    The important part of the incident is that no one was hurt.

    The inventory and the building structure can be replaced. Lives can’t.

  • Snowy week results in productive week at home

     We started the week of February 16 with the record-breaking snow levels in some parts of the state, and it ended with record low temperatures in others.

    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.

  • Does snow make us crazy?

     Is it simply the falling of those pretty white flakes that make us a little crazy?

    Or is it just a coincidence?

    Probably just a coincidence that everyone hits the grocery stores on those days preceding a big snow storm.

    And probably just another coincidence that people get interested in buying shovels and salt on the days before a snowy storm.

    It’s probably just a coincidence that the viewship on The Weather Channel, once a proud member of the Landmark family, goes through the roof.

  • We must all realize that homeless woes exist

     Many years ago, a very intelligent and well-respected man told us that there was no drug problem in Bullitt County.

    Even 25 years ago, there was a drug problem in the county and in the region.

    Now, there is another problem that many would like to ignore -- homelessness.

    We’re not talking about someone who lost his or her home due to financial problems. We’re talking about people who are literally walking around with no clue where  they might spend t he next night.

  • Flurry of bills considered early in short session

     FRANKFORT -- The 2015 Session of the Kentucky General Assembly is nearing the halfway point, and with few days left to take up legislation a flurry of key bills passed in the House this past week.

    Among the bills passed in the House include allowing a local option sales tax in Kentucky, combating the growing issue of heroin in our Commonwealth, and proposals to raise the minimum wage and implement a smoking ban across the state.
