  • Letter to the Editor - Pipe Dreams II

    Recently, I attended a presentation by Williams and Boardwalk before the state natural resources and environmental committee. The program began with an overview of their dream pipeline project by three company representatives. Predictably, this consisted of how much they care about safety, the environment, and how happy landowners will be with their pipeline and their perpetual relationship with the Williams and Boardwalk empire and whoever follows them.

  • I share Bluegrass Pipeline concerns

    Since the Williams Company and Boardwalk Pipeline announced plans earlier this year to run a portion of a 1,100-mile natural gas liquid (NGL) pipeline through Kentucky and through our community here, I’ve heard many concerns by landowners and community members. Concerns that I share.
    The legislature has been closely following the situation and last week convened a meeting of the Interim Joint Committee on Natural Resources and Energy focused on the issue. I am confident this is just the beginning of many conversations we will have in Frankfort about the pipeline.

  • Get out and enjoy what Kentucky has to offer

    With Labor Day behind us and a “biting cold and snowy” winter to come – if the Farmers’ Almanac prediction proves correct – the clock is ticking for those of us who would like to see some of what Kentucky has to offer during the fall.

  • License hemp but don't oversell; crop no game-changer

    From the Lexington Herald-Leader

    Goodness knows, a state that grows tobacco, which kills people, and champions products like gambling and liquor is hard-pressed to put on airs when it comes to industrial hemp, a botanical cousin to marijuana.
    So we stand by our longstanding support for legalizing industrial hemp production.
    But make no mistake about it, industrial hemp will not transform Kentucky's economy.

    Proposed U.S. strike on Syria raises major concerns
    Perhaps my age — late 80s — leads me to reflect on the past even while I am gravely concerned about the present, specifically now the proposed U.S. strike on Syria. Memory brings up the key role of Damascus in the history of religion. And as I view the President and the Secretary of State declaiming the rightness of their call to arms, memory brings up their more enlightened years. To them I write:

    Let Memory Be the Light
    For John Kerry and Barack Obama
