  • Kentucky keeps history alive

    When it comes to keeping history alive, few states can match Kentucky.
    The Kentucky Historical Society, for example, will celebrate its 180th birthday in 2016, the same year our country will mark the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act.

  • Guest editorial: Campaign signs might look good in a bonfire

    By The Kentucky New Era

    There are so many reasons to be thankful for autumn in Kentucky. The brilliant landscape of yellow, orange and red trees. A merciful end to those humid summer days that feel like steamy soup hanging in the air even after sundown. Chili suppers, school festivals and the anticipation of Thanksgiving.
