  • Crime doesn’t pay

     Aug. 7 started like any other Thursday. I woke up, prayed, made coffee and went to get the trashcans from the side of the road. 

    On my way there, I saw a cigarette with a chewed up filter lying underneath my car on the passenger side. At the time, I hadn’t smoked a cigarette in 537 days. 

    Suspicious, I decided to give my car a once over to make sure no vandals had paid a visit. Thankfully, no one trashed my car, but it was apparent that someone had been in it.

    Next year, both private and home-schooled children may be able to sink their teeth into public school athletics. That is, if the Kentucky legislature thinks it’s a good idea. 

    Marion County native and State Rep. Stan Lee (R) of Lexington, prefiled the “Tim Tebow” bill on Aug. 5. The bill, named after NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, reads that it would allow children in non-public schools, including home-schooled children, to participate in public school interscholastic extracurricular activities.
