Today's Opinions

  • Senate votes for debt limits; casino bill defeated

    After a pause for President's Day, the legislature moved into the second half of the 2012 General Assembly Session. I had visits from groups representing adult day health care providers and developmental disabilities. Many Boy Scout troops came to Frankfort for the annual Boy Scout Day at the Capitol. It was a pleasure to see these civic-minded boys and young men and their dedicated troop leaders and parents.

  • Take the leap to live longer

    So, we have an extra day today... what are you going to do with it?

    I have a suggestion for you.

    Take the leap to live longer and start exercising.

    Wait! Wait!

    Bringing back the Red Cross

    John G. Mattingly and the Marion County Fiscal Court recently approved funding to help the Red Cross purchase disaster relief supplies.

    With their foresight, the Red Cross is back in Marion County in a big way. Communities all over the world benefit from Red Cross services in their times of need, and with this commitment, Marion County will be better prepared for the next ice storm or big flood.

  • Letter: Great job by Knights and Lady Knights

    We have enjoyed the MCHS boys and girls basketball games this year and would like to point out a few really special people involved in each and every event.
    First, the coaches and players have had a great season.
    Volunteers show up for every game and do a remarkable job, and the MCHS administration and staff make sure the bases are covered for every game.
    The faithful fans deserve credit for showing up to enjoy every game, and the students encourage the players and give us all a lift.

  • Letter: We challenge you!

    The Community Service Center Board of Directors would like to express our sincere appreciation to all who have donated food or money in the past to help the needy of Marion County.

  • Ultrasound bill has cleared the Senate

    We have reached the half-way point of the 2012 General Assembly Session. There are daily committee meetings, policy briefings, visits from constituents, and meetings with various advocacy groups.

  • House has approved 68 bills midway through session

    We have reached the half way mark of the 2012 session and I believe the House of Representatives has much to show for our 30 days in Frankfort.
    Since Jan. 3, we have been hard at work moving legislation through the committee process, working on budget issues within our subcommittees and meeting with constituents and stakeholders on issues of importance to Kentuckians.
