  • We continue to protect and promote freedom

    As we ready to celebrate the Fourth of July on Saturday, it’s worth remembering the words President Kennedy spoke at Philadelphia’s Independence Hall a little more than five decades ago.
    “The theory of independence is as old as man himself, and it was not invented in this hall,” he said, “but it was in this hall that the theory became a practice; that the word went out to all, in Thomas Jefferson’s phrase, that ‘the God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time.’”

  • Happy Fourth of July

    I can’t think of a better place to be for the Fourth of July than in Kentucky. We love our country and we know how to celebrate the fourth! All across the Commonwealth, communities have wonderful and unique traditions - none more so than our cities and communities in the 14th Senate District from Fishing Creek (Casey County) to Fern Creek (Jefferson County).

    Elect someone who will listen
    While our board leaves much to be desired, we certainly have added two great leaders to the ranks.

  • Remembering those we’ve lost

    Friday, June 19, would have been David Litsey Jr.’s 25th birthday.
    To mark the occasion, his family and friends gathered at his grave in the St. Augustine Cemetery. Balloons were passed out with a message on the side: “It’s been a long day without you my friend, I’ll tell you about it when I see you again!”
    As the family gathered to remember, someone read a poem, “The Loss of a Cousin.”
    Everyone released their balloons, and David’s mother, Linda, led a prayer.

  • 98 bills go into effect today

    Interim activity continues, and in our meetings there has been very significant data provided. During the IJC on labor and industry last week, Dr. Kate Akers of the Kentucky Center for Education and Workforce Statistics reported that nearly 63 percent of Kentucky public high school graduates were college and/or career ready in 2014. While the numbers are an increase over previous years, it is difficult to compare with other states because Kentucky is unique in this measurement.
