  • Many major issues for General Assembly

    FRANKFORT – In less than seven weeks, the General Assembly will meet for what will be the fifth odd-year regular session since voters made them possible in 2000.

    During those 30 legislative days, the first five of which are dedicated to administrative matters like electing House and Senate leaders, legislators will consider dozens of issues.  Earlier this month, the General Assembly’s administrative arm, known as the Legislative Research Commission, issued its annual report on what some of those might include.

  • Local students to be part of state issues conference

    4-H is a community of young people across America that learns leadership, citizenship and life skills.

    For the past two decades, Kentucky 4-H has given youths an opportunity to attend a four-day “Issues Conference” to develop such skills.

    This year’s 4-H Issues Conference will be Nov. 20-23 at the Lake Cumberland 4-H Educational Center in Jabez.

  • Plenty of movie ideas here in Bullitt County

    It’s okay to be a little scared at Halloween. It’s actually kind of fun. Old traditions of days past used to literally frighten people. Today they are a constant source of Halloween entertainment.

    Trick-or-treaters are the most common take on this change. Kids used to dress as hobos and tramps, begging for candy and treats. Now they dress up from the best-known celebrities to the creepiest of souls.

  • Now let's get to work folks

    The elections are over and we know the playing field in January.

    Whether it is in the White House or in the city hall chambers, there are tough times that must be addressed by all.

    The country has taken an historic step in the election of Barack Obama. We must rally behind the new president and we must demand that steps are taken to return the country to its economic standing.

    We must look at our local leaders -- many of whom will be taking office for the first time. There will a mix of the old and new. It will take leadership to bring the sides together.

  • Beware of scams associated with storms

    Let me first say that it has been heartening to see communities across Kentucky pull together to help those in need following the devastating windstorm that swept across our state on September 14. 

    Families were put to the test with damaged homes, loss of power and in some cases, the loss of life.

    As Kentuckians so often do when faced with adversity, we responded with kindness, compassion and concern for our neighbors.
