  • Trash talk isn’t cheap

    “History repeats itself, and that's one of the things that's wrong with history.” - Clarence Darrow

    In the case of Marion County and its delinquent garbage accounts, history is most certainly repeating itself.
    While it’s a new problem for Marion County Judge-Executive David Daugherty, who just began his second year as judge, it’s an old problem for the county and one that, frankly, I thought we had under control.

  • Kentucky Senate majority rolls out it priorities

    From the patriotic medleys of the 100th Army Band to chants of citizens passionately advocating a cause, the sounds echoing through the hallways of our Capitol signaled just one thing – the 150th General Assembly was in session.
    After just the first week, Senate Majority had rolled out its priorities. It’s 13 bills that are a mix of both new and familiar. Many of the bills have been discussed in concept through last year. Some of the bills will even enjoy bipartisan support.

  • Filing legislation and kicking off 2016 regular session

    If the final days of a legislative session are spent deciding what laws the General Assembly will pass, then the first few days are focused on what the House and Senate hope will be on that list.
    Setting those priorities was the main theme last week as other legislators and I returned to the Capitol and began filing legislation to kick off the 2016 regular session.
    In the House, we will again work toward strengthening the Kentucky Teachers’ Retirement System (KTRS), which is facing a multi-billion dollar liability and needs a plan to adequately address it.

  • God bless law enforcement officers

    I had the opportunity to read the Enterprise’s story on Floyd Cook. Cook was certainly not a monster. He was much worse.
    Cook’s sister stated how much he loved animals and his church going practices because he loved animals and went to church. Does that give him the right to shoot law enforcement officers and try to run over them with his vehicle? Does loving animals and going to church give him the right to go around raping women?
