  • Jail rehab programs on the rise

    Jessica Hayes admits she has made mistakes.
    The Springfield, Ohio, native started using cocaine when she was 14 years old. She later moved to Kentucky, and she traded her cocaine addiction for a pill addiction.
    That eventually led to a conviction for second-degree robbery and second-degree burglary, but that is only part of the reason she is at the Marion County Detention Center.
    Hayes, now 25, transferred to MCDC in December so she could participate in Women Living in Balance (WLIB), a 90-day substance abuse program.

We managed to finish the paper before deadline, but we were frazzled, to say the least.

  • Kentucky Export Initiative is underway

    To better understand just how involved Kentucky is in transporting and exporting products across the country and around the world, consider the lobster.
    Most people normally wouldn’t associate the commonwealth with the crustacean, but they should, because for more than a decade now, we have been home to the world’s largest inland lobster tank. It’s a key stopping point between Nova Scotia and some of the United States’ finest restaurants.
