  • Traveling the Bluegrass State, hearing about important issues

    I’ve been traveling a great deal this week to attend my committee meetings. Monday, the Interim Joint Committee on Education met in Lee County. Wednesday, I traveled to Paducah for the IJC on Labor. And Thursday, I was back in Frankfort for the Veterans, Military and Public Protection meeting. It was well worth it as I was able to see so much of our beautiful state and hear the current issues so important to our people.

    Finding talented individuals to fill open positions is one of the greatest challenges businesses in our region face.

  • Public records, open meetings and hotels

    Things had been relatively quiet around the Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission for the past few years.
    After a period of controversy, during which the commission’s continued existence was in question and a former executive director left for a job in a larger organization, things seemed to settle down.

  • Celebrate the American worker

    “I learned the value of hard work by working hard.” - Margaret Mead

    Labor Day is Monday.

    For many of us, Labor Day is the symbolic end of summer. (Can someone please pass the Kleenex?)
    However, in terms of a “holiday,” Labor Day probably doesn’t mean much to you.
    But, it should.
    Labor Day is a public holiday held in honor of working people.
