  • Best Ever snow removal

     One thing is for certain Old Man Winter is here! The snow is Free and the frigid weather is Free! Free to us from Old Man Winter! Free for us to sled in. Free for us to make snowmen out of. Free for children to run and play in. Free for the “Foxes” and “Dogs” to romp in. We are all free to enjoy watching the snow falling as we sit in our cozy houses, sipping hot chocolate while we are unable to go to school and be with our friends.

  • BBB Names Top Ten Scams of 2013

     Every year, BBB receives thousands of calls and emails from consumers who have been scammed. Some scams are widespread, getting a lot of people for small amounts. Others are more narrowly focused, but take people for thousands or tens of thousands of dollars. Here are BBB’s Top Scams of 2013:

  • Bill would have CPR taught to all ninth graders in state

     Around the commonwealth as folks dealt with more cold temps and bad weather, vintage cars sliding into sinkholes and an early morning pipeline explosion, in Frankfort our focus remained on education and doing what we can to educate and protect our children.

    House Bill 205 passed out of the House Education Committee this week which would ensure that CPR be taught in every 9th grade health class in all Kentucky high schools.

  • Life in prison would be sentence for shooting police

     FRANKFORT - We are nearing the halfway point of the 2014 Regular Session of the Kentucky General Assembly, and while we continue work and debate on a budget for the next two years, numerous bills have been filed and are making their way through the legislative process.

    One bill filed lastweek was in honor of a fallen Kentucky police officer.

    Rep. David Floyd of Bardstown filed House Bill 368, which is being called the Officer Jason Ellis Memorial Act.

  • Protect your heart

     Heart disease is the No. 1 cause of illness and death for North American women and kills more women than all forms of cancer combined. February is Women’s Heart Health Month, and it is a great time for women to start taking better care of their hearts all year round.

    It’s important to know your personal risk for heart disease and family history. Common risk factors for heart disease include elevated blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, smoking, diabetes, a sedentary lifestyle and overweight or obesity.

  • Great chance for city to provide officers to be in school facilities

     There is no doubt that it would be a wonderful thing if every school in the United States could have a trained police officer inside its building every day.

    In years past, the federal government has provided money for school resource officers. This money has basically dried up.

    Even with the grant money, there were not the funds to pay an officer in each school.

  • Kudos to those keeping streets safe

     It has been a winter like no other - in recent memory.

    It isn’t the terrific one-day snow and ice events that we’ve seen in the past.

    But it sure is a whole lot worse than we’ve experienced in the past 5-6 years.

    The one of snow here, the quarter inch of ice there and the sub-zero wind chill temperatures have all done nothing but cause havac with life as we know it.

    Schools have been cancelled.

    Businesses have suffered from the lack of customers.
