  • 4G is coming … eventually

    If you have a cellular phone, you are probably aware that 3G service is available in Marion County, regardless of who your provider is.
    Recently, I received an email asking when 4G is coming.
    I guess that’s an inevitable question since wireless service advertisements are touting 4G devices and networks. As we all know, that doesn’t mean that service is available everywhere.
    I sent emails to both AT&T and Bluegrass Cellular last week to try to find out more about 4G. Here’s what I’ve heard so far.

  • A boost in education pays off

    Over the last generation, Kentucky has seen a lot of success when it comes to boosting the education level of our workforce.
    Since 1994, according to the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE), the number of those employed who have a bachelor’s degree has jumped 80 percent, while those with a high school diploma or less has dropped by more than a tenth.
    That’s a trend that needs to continue, because CPE estimates that, by the year 2020, more than half of Kentucky’s jobs will require at least some college experience.

  • Corrections and clarifications

    In the April 3, 2013 edition, a wedding announcement for Justin and Brittney Clark should have listed his parents’ address as Bowling Green. Also, Daniel Gordon was identified incorrectly as Daniel Rakes.

    A news story in the April 3 edition should have read that Adrienne and Candace Tucker, both 19, of Campbellsville were cited for violations of the social host ordinance. They were not arrested.

  • The 26th magical mile

    Before I wrote this column Monday evening, I had to go for a run.
    I had been sitting at my desk all afternoon and evening reading reports about the explosions that killed at least two people and injured hundreds of others near the finish line at the Boston Marathon. I held back tears as I viewed images taken by photographers of the gruesome scene, the sidewalks covered in blood.
    Initially, I thought it had to be a hoax.
    Why would anyone do something like this at one of our oldest, most prestigious running events?
    It was unthinkable.
