    Leaving the hospital late Sunday night, he seemed to be in very good spirits. Maybe that’s the way it is just before you enter your  next phase in life.

  • Treasurer Allison Ball warns Kentuckians of recent phone scam

     The Kentucky State Treasurer’s Office has recently learned of a telephone fraud scheme listing the Kentucky State Treasury as its physical address.

    Under this scheme, an individual is notified that he or she is eligible for a “free grant” of thousands of dollars. The individual is then instructed to wire money or purchase gift cards for the scammer in exchange for the promise of receiving this “free grant.”
