  • Budget reflects House priorities: Education, pensions, public safety

    After House concurrence of a compromise two-year spending plan, we have sent the Governor a budget that fully funds Kentucky’s pension systems, boosts education funding, and prioritizes public safety. We also modernized Kentucky’s outdated, uncompetitive tax code for the first time in years, broadening the base while lowering the income tax for all working Kentuckians to 5 percent.

  • A record worth remembering

    Kentucky’s legislature has never exactly been a beacon of model behavior. I can recall Operation Boptrot, when more than a dozen state legislators were convicted of accepting bribes.

    I don’t suspect that anyone in the 2018 General Assembly will be convicted of criminal activity, which in a way makes what they’ve done legally even more shameful.

  • Quick and easy way isn’t necessarily the right way
  • A bitter pill to swallow
  • 10 tips to make the most of attending a career fair

    If you’re a job seeker, one of the most valuable benefits of a career fair is the rare opportunity to speak directly to employers who are hiring. It’s a chance to make an impression, and in some cases get an on-the-spot interview. Career fairs are also a way for you to learn information about a company that might not be in its job postings or on its website.

  • How much is enough?

    People have differing views on matters concerning our school system in Marion County and I respect different opinions on these issues.

  • Remember in November

    Kentucky Retirement Systems stakeholders are shocked and appalled by the actions of the General Assembly regarding public pensions. Last week, in the space of about nine hours, the majority party produced a 291-page pension bill and voted it out of the House and Senate. Senate Bill 151 awaits Gov. Matt Bevin’s signature.

  • Dear citizen

    Dear citizen,

    “The advantage of being armed…the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation…in the several kingdoms of Europe…the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” (James Madison, The Federalist, 46) (p.107, vol.71, firearms news)

    Beware of Federal Bill 5087.
