  • Budget proposal made as state faces tough future

    Nearly two weeks ago I submitted a two-year budget proposal that included a bold new way to help fund, on a recurring basis, shared priorities like education and jobs, a way that eschewed the tax increases and destructive cuts being espoused by some legislative leaders.

    As I had predicted, my proposal was met with a chorus of angry responses in some quarters, and the posturing and rhetoric was as stiff as it was unhelpful in moving the discussion forward.

    In fact, some legislators declared my budget “dead” even before they examined it.

  • COYLE'S CORNER
  • House must originate budget discussions

    Budgets must originate in the House of Representatives, so it’s our job to write a spending plan for the House to approve.

    It takes a lot of work, especially since we will need to make cuts this year and that is always difficult.

    But we will pass a budget and send it to the Senate.

  • Schools could now be eligible for more funds

        FRANKFORT – With an eye on giving our schools a better shot to compete for as much as $200 million in federal grants, the General Assembly unanimously approved legislation last week that should greatly increase our chances.

  • Young doctor carries same vision

    HILLVIEW - Just close your eyes and listen.

    There is no need to have any DNA or paternity tests.

    Just close your eyes and listen.

    There is no doubt that Dr. Praveen Arla is the son of Dr. Mohana Arla.

    And it’s not because of how they say it...it’s because of what they are saying.

    Praveen has recently joined his father’s medical practice in Hillview and Lebanon Junction. It’s a natural to enter a field he’s known his entire life.

    But the young doctor said he went into the field with his eyes wide open.

  • BBB Warns: Don't Fall for Walmart Gift Card Scam

    The Walmart gift card scam has apparently made its way to Kentucky.

    A local consumer contacted the BBB to inquire about a text message she received, advising her that she won a $200 Walmart gift card.

    When she called the number in the text message (877-232-5149) she was told that in Kentucky the gift card was for $180 and that she would need to pay $7.60 for shipping/handling fees.

  • Both sides of aisle should be commended on their behavior

    To borrow an old sports clique, there have been times over the years that one may have attended a hockey game and a Shepherdsville City Council meeting broke out.

    When you have emotional topics such as alcohol sales and adult entertainment, the discussions can get quite heated.

    On Monday night, the issue of Sunday alcohol sales was on the agenda.

    With a packed crowd, 13 individuals chose to speak to the council.

    Each speaker did an excellent job presenting their points. And the audience listened to each one.
