  • Extreme Makeover: Dog Edition

    I could barely see his eyes when he showed up on my doorstep.
    His long, stringy hair covered most of his face. His coat was wet and covered in mud. Parts of his body were covered with huge mounds of matted hair.
    He was very quiet, and seemed frightened. He wouldn’t let me get too close.
    I assumed he was hungry so I brought him some dog food, which he spilled all over the ground. Desperate to feed this poor animal, I found some country ham leftover from Christmas in my refrigerator, which he wolfed down as fast as I could give it to him.

  • Legislators are preparing for the 2014 General Assembly

    I send my best regards to you and your family for the New Year. The holidays are behind us now, and we strive to get back into our routine with school and work. For me, Jan. 7 convened the 2014 General Assembly, a 60-day legislative session creating the next two-year budget for Kentucky. This year is loaded with issues that require legislative action as the Senate Majority strives to make pathways for economic growth and fight for fiscal responsibility.

  • Looking back to look ahead

    The General Assembly returned to the Capitol on Tuesday this week, and it is worth taking one last look back at 2013, to review some of the issues my legislative colleagues and I have been studying in recent months.

  • New goal for the New Year

    Every now and again, the world, or a community, or a family, or a sport, loses an important figure.
    Sometimes, it seems like these losses come in pairs or trios. Sometimes, they can be expected, sometimes, out of the blue.
    Often, it seems, these strings of deaths have little in common with myself, or anyone I know. But when thrown in the mix of a new year, these deaths can’t help but make me think a little bit harder about life.

  • Marion County doubles the fun

    The Marion County Knights and Lady Knights both defeated their counterparts from Campbellsville in a Jan. 3 doubleheader.
    The Lady Knights (5-7) wasted no time in crushing the Lady Eagles, 67-17.
    Lady Knights Coach Anthony Epps said he and the team were very confident going into the game against the Lady Eagles (1-9) but because they are not as strong as they have been in the past, they could not afford to take the night off.

  • Definition of a good duck hunt

    Has anyone been outside lately? If so, you’ve probably experienced a regional dose of global warming! The other day it even got warm enough to thaw out a Mountain Dew I had in my blind bag.
