  • Growth opportunity

    Industrial hemp hasn't been legal to grow in the United States for decades.
    Not that people haven't wanted to grow it, but right or wrong, hemp has been lumped in with its botanical cousin, marijuana, for a long time.

  • MCHS making wishes come true

    Someone once said, "Raising teenagers is like nailing Jell-O to a tree."

    I vaguely remember what being a teenager was like, only I had a twin sister to boot. Twin teenage daughters... My mom probably wondered what she did to deserve such torture.

    After all, teenagers can be a real pain.

  • House focuses on youngest, oldest citizens

    Most legislation that the General Assembly passes each year falls in one of two categories: It either protects, or it promotes.

    That was especially evident this past week in the Kentucky House of Representatives, which voted for bills that range from further limiting abuse of our youngest and oldest citizens to helping more students in the coalfields of Eastern Kentucky get their four-year college degree.

  • Final rush of bills as the end of session nears

    We are entering the home-stretch of the 2012 General Assembly with the attendant rush of bills as legislators feel the urgency of the dwindling days. The Senate had a very full week with legislation, committee meetings, and we received the budget proposal from the House as well as the state's road plan. Visits from groups ranging from home-schoolers to the AARP to 4H also came to the capitol to see their legislator and press for their causes.
