  • A look back: As a new year approaches, let's look back at what Kentucky has accomplished

    As the General Assembly readies for a return to the Capitol next week to start another legislative session, it is worth taking a look back on what has happened since the last one ended in late March.
    This period is known as the interim, and it gives the House and Senate’s two dozen joint committees – plus several temporary ones – time to review the issues affecting the state in a less pressure-filled setting. In some cases, meetings are held across the state.

    As we get ready to close out 2015, let me wish you and your family a happy New Year!
    It’s time again for members of the Kentucky General Assembly to meet for a 60-day legislative session that is frequently called a “budget session.” During this time, my colleagues and I will work to develop a two-year budget for state government.

  • Career growth requires teamwork

    By Jerisia Lamons

    Teamwork makes the dream work.

  • His life mattered

    Horatio "Bud" Olive
    Deceased: Dec. 8, 2015
    Born: Jan. 15, 1936

    That’s the only information included in Horatio “Bud” Olive’s obituary on the Oldham County Funeral Home’s website.
    His name, his birth date and his death date.
    That’s all.
    But, after talking with two of his friends at his funeral Friday, I know a little bit more about him. I wish I knew more.
    I know that he was born and raised in San Diego, California.
