    By Gene Policinski
    Newseum CEO

    WASHINGTON — The power of the press rests in the ability of journalists to hold government accountable, to mobilize public opinion on matters that are important to individuals, communities or the nation, and to provide necessary information of value.

  • Employers struggling to find able-bodied Kentuckians

    Autumn is already upon us as we celebrate the return of fall colors and cooler weather. In advance of the special session, members of the Kentucky General Assembly have been busy during the interim period.
