  • Rare view

    For nearly five years, Kentuckians heard President Obama repeat one very familiar phrase: “If you like your current health care plan, you can keep it.” Kentuckians took the president at his word as he echoed this promise over and over again.

  • We all are responsible for keeping our roads safe

    One of the more persistent challenges facing our country is finding ways to reduce the number of people killed or injured in a traffic accident.
    In one sense, we have come a long way. Four decades ago, for example, the number of highway fatalities regularly topped 50,000 a year, but the figures for 2011 were the lowest the United States has seen since 1949, a testament to tougher laws, safer roads, more focused enforcement and better technology in the cars and trucks we drive.
