  • Let your voice be heard on proposed pipeline project

    Last week, it was announced that the Federal Environmental Regulatory Commission (FERC) will study a proposed conversion of a natural gas pipeline that crosses Kentucky.

  • Giving citizens a second chance

    When the General Assembly passes a new law cracking down on criminal behavior, there is an informal question legislators must first address: Is this someone we’re mad at, or someone we’re afraid of?
    It’s an important distinction. Those we’re afraid of, so to speak, need to be removed from society for a long time, but those we’re mad at need a path forward that helps them re-integrate into private life when their punishment is finished.

  • ‘At his best’

    My dad taught me how to do many things during his life.
    He taught me how to pick out the perfect walking stick during our hikes together, and that trail mix (with M&Ms) is a necessity during long walks.
    He taught me the significance and importance of good photography. The photos he took of my twin sister and me when we were younger are priceless in my eyes.
    And, while I didn’t realize it at the time, he taught me that running can be a way to escape the stresses of life, as well as stay in shape.
