  • Saying Goodbye

     A few notes about some of those who have passed recently and their ties to the community…

    *Robert Harned, known as Bob, to most, recently passed away.

    For many, many years, the Lebanon Junction man has played a major role in agriculture in the community.

    As a young editorial person put in charge of advertising, my biggest memories were his days of owning Bullitt County Feeders.

  • Belcher remains positive on House budget plan

     I am pleased to report that the House’s budget process is on track and on time, with a vote on our proposal for the state’s next two-year spending plan expected early next week.

    While final details are still being ironed out, I can assure you that we will present a fiscally responsible plan that will take into account the considerable revenue growth the Commonwealth is experiencing -- including more than $908 million expected between now and the end of fiscal year 2018.

  • Seum maintains budget focus

     Not only did Friday mark the end to another busy week in the Kentucky Senate, it also was day 46 of our 60-day legislative session. We are now in the proverbial fourth quarter when the House and the Senate must come together to get a victory for the state of Kentucky by passing a responsible budget. 

    After 10 weeks we are still awaiting a key assist from our colleagues in the House in the form of a budget bill that has yet to pass the lower chamber.
