  • Hot dogs, hold the mustard

    Governments big and small have been going through their rituals of transition this month. 

    The new Congress was sworn in last week, as was the new General Assembly in Kentucky. Governors around the country took office, and we recently had the swearing in for the new Lebanon City Council, local city commissions and Marion County Board of Education members.

With the passage of these bills, the "Agenda for Prosperity," very few can say we didn't deliver on that promise this first week.
