  • See something, say something
  • Kentucky ranked No. 1 for wrong health reasons

    By Dr. Patrick J. Withrow

    What I am referring to, sadly, are the horrible chronic diseases and premature deaths caused by Kentuckians using tobacco products.
    Per Capita, Kentucky ranks No. 1 in cigarette consumption of all 50 states and leads the nation in lung cancer deaths. One-third of all cancer deaths in Kentucky are related to tobacco. The No. 1 killer of women is heart attack and stroke and of men, cancer; most are attributable to tobacco. Kentucky leads the nation by far in pregnant women who smoke (26.5 percent vs. 10.7 percent).

    did not murder anyone. He is not a violent individual. He did a lot of good 
    for people in both Washington and Marion counties in Kentucky. Why is the 
    Commonwealth of Kentucky and the U.S. government spending millions of dollars 
    to prosecute and imprison a man who is not a threat to anyone?

  • Fourth of July a time for celebration

    By State Rep. Brandon Reed
     
    The Fourth of July is a time that represents everything that is fundamentally great about America: the freedom and inalienable rights that this nation was founded upon.

  • Free training for in-demand fields Work Ready Scholarship

    By Dr. Juston Pate

    Employers in high-demand industries across our region are facing the same challenge. They are struggling to find the skilled employees they need to replenish an aging workforce, grow their businesses and remain globally competitive. At the same time, many Central Kentuckians with the potential to succeed in our region’s growing career fields are held back by the financial burden of continuing their education.
