  • 98 bills go into effect today

    Interim activity continues, and in our meetings there has been very significant data provided. During the IJC on labor and industry last week, Dr. Kate Akers of the Kentucky Center for Education and Workforce Statistics reported that nearly 63 percent of Kentucky public high school graduates were college and/or career ready in 2014. While the numbers are an increase over previous years, it is difficult to compare with other states because Kentucky is unique in this measurement.

  • Change is on the horizon for Kentucky’s internet speeds

    Three months ago, when the Washington Post ran a story comparing peak broadband internet speeds among the states, the news for Kentucky was not good: We came in last, behind Arkansas. Our rate is half of what can be found in Virginia, which placed second.

  • Find the benefits of a multi-generational workforce

    By Kenny Rambo

    Our current workplace culture includes more generations working together than ever before. For the first time in history we have four generations in the workplace at one time – traditionalists, baby boomers, Gen X and millennials. Such a diverse group of people working together can create challenges for workplace culture, but this also provides an opportunity for employees to learn and grow as a team.

  • Home-work

    We hoped we wouldn’t have to discuss this again. We hoped two years into Taylora Schlosser’s term as superintendent of Marion County Public Schools that she would have established a residence here, rendering any discussion of that matter a moot point.
    In a way, it is a moot point (at least for the next few years) because a majority of the board of education voted (3-2) last week to remove the residency requirement from Schlosser’s contract.
