  • No ordinary fish

    I don’t know about you, but my mind has been consumed with “bad news” lately.
    So, if I may, I’m going to lighten the mood for a bit.
    I want to tell you a story about a fish named “Dempsey.”
    Dempsey is no ordinary fish.
    For starters, he’s a parrot cichlid, and his ancestors were first created in Taiwan around 1986.
    He’s “manmade” so to speak.

  • Kentucky’s Regular Session is in full swing

    The Kentucky General Assembly convened its 2015 Regular Session this week, with more than 200 bills already filed and ready for consideration.
    In many years past, the first week of this off-year “short” session was spent mainly on formalities like electing leaders and appointing committees, with the real work of passing bills beginning in February. But with only 30 days to accomplish so much, I’m proud to say the Senate got down to business passing legislation.

  • Issues to be debated during legislative session

    Although legislative sessions in odd-numbered years are relatively new in Kentucky – the first was held in 2001 – the General Assembly has long met during the first full week of January in these years to elect House and Senate leaders and update committee assignments.
    While the top four leaders in both chambers remained the same last week, there were some changes in the other leadership positions; in fact, nine of the 16 House and Senate leaders are new.

    MLK march, celebration Jan. 18
    Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was an instrument used by God to bring honor and dignity back to the United States of America by changing the face of society. No longer should we strive for the survival of the fittest but for the brotherly love that God ordained humanity to obtain. Slavery is a sport on America's history, and thanks to the courage and self-sacrifice of Dr. King and the many others who fought long and hard for the civil rights of all people, that spot is now a smudge.
