  • Take a moment to observe Veterans Day

    I’m impressed every time I walk into the Kentucky State Capitol to do the business of the people. Its marble hallways are full of memorials.
    A large bronze statue of former President Abraham Lincoln stands in the center of the Capitol rotunda. Portraits of state Supreme Court justices line the second-floor hallways.

  • Governor’s inauguration will be Dec. 8

    While last week’s gubernatorial election marked the end of this year’s campaign season, it also kicked off the beginning of a transition period that has been guided by tradition and the state constitution for much of our history.
    Not quite 60 people have served as governor since Kentucky joined the United States in 1792. In the beginning, voters did not have a direct say. Instead, the decision was made by a group of electors, similar to our presidential elections today.
