  • Time right to look at 'alternatives' in school year

        With so many innovative things happening in education, one item that really hasn’t been altered in years is the calendar.

        No matter what calendar is finally agreed upon, there will be those who are unhappy.

        As the push to get more instructional days into the calendar before state testing is done in the spring, maybe it is time to at least start discussions on some type of alternative calendar.

  • Budget decision getting closer

    FRANKFORT - Over the past week in Frankfort, the Senate continued its work in many areas of government policy as we passed legislation dealing with jails, health care, and education.

    We also continued to keep a close eye on the budget plan being worked on in the House of Representatives.

    We passed House Bill 231, which creates a second level of psychiatric residential treatment facility licensure in Kentucky.

  • Senate encourages energy savings

    FRANKFORT - Last week the 2010 Regular Session of the General Assembly reached its halfway point, and the Senate passed measures to increase transparency in political campaigns, build energy efficient schools, and improve Kentucky’s laws concerning driving under the influence of alcohol.

  • Court members can get along when playing game of 'committee chairs'

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Who says the fiscal court members can’t play well together? Especially in this time of love - Valentine Day.

    They played a game of musical chairs last week after a discussion arose over the legality of committee meetings and who could attend.

    Last year, the fiscal court officially set committees to deal with the budget, personnel, infrastructure and contracts. Joe Laswell and Eddie Bleemel sat on the budget/personnel committees with David Walker and Buddy Shepherd on the other two.
