    A legislative committee meeting drew about 150 people Thursday for a discussion on the proposed Bluegrass Pipeline, which could make its way through Kentucky.
    Controversy has arisen over the safety and environmental risks of the project and the question of whether the pipeline companies have eminent domain to secure easements from landowners. All these issues came up Thursday, with lawmakers expressing both support and concern.

    From The State Journal

    Kroger announced Friday it will cease doubling coupon values Sept. 22 in most of its Kentucky, southern Indiana and southern Illinois stores.
    Local Kroger stores are not alone in the change; The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that coupon doubling would end Sept. 21 in Georgia, South Carolina and Alabama stores.

  • TG Kentucky to plant 35,000 trees

    If you’ve driven past TG Kentucky in Lebanon lately, it looks as if the company is building a moat.

    They are actually prepping the land surrounding the factory for an afforestation project, scheduled to be completed in March of 2014.
    Afforestation is a fancy word for planting a bunch of trees… 35,000, in fact.
    According to a press release from TG Kentucky, on March 23, 2014, the company will plant 35,000 trees on the land surrounding its facility.

  • I share Bluegrass Pipeline concerns

    Since the Williams Company and Boardwalk Pipeline announced plans earlier this year to run a portion of a 1,100-mile natural gas liquid (NGL) pipeline through Kentucky and through our community here, I’ve heard many concerns by landowners and community members. Concerns that I share.
    The legislature has been closely following the situation and last week convened a meeting of the Interim Joint Committee on Natural Resources and Energy focused on the issue. I am confident this is just the beginning of many conversations we will have in Frankfort about the pipeline.
