  • Kentucky proud

    Fans of the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville have had a lot to celebrate in recent years.
    Kentucky won its eighth NCAA men’s basketball title two years ago, and this year's team reached the tournament finals. In the last few years, Louisville reached a Final Four and won its third championship in basketball, sent a baseball team to the College World Series, won the Sugar Bowl in football and sent its women's basketball team to its second championship game appearance.
    But really, that stuff is meaningless.

    May is National Foster Care Month
    May is National Foster Care Month, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank foster and kinship parents in our community for their hard work and dedication to families across our region.

  • Successful session is complete

    Sine die came on April 15 at midnight. In case you don't know what “sine die” means (I did not until I ran for the House of Rep) it is Latin for “the end.” This 60-day session was a very busy one with more than 800 pieces of legislation filed, and just over 100 passed into law. The most important bills of this session were the budget bills.

  • General Assembly’s work is through, for now

    When the General Assembly left the Capitol late last month for its traditional veto recess – the roughly two-week period a governor has to approve or reject legislation – it was already becoming clear that the regular session’s final two days would be busy.
