  • Letters to the editor: Threats to our privacy

    I’m told that Google Glass when viewing a person’s face scans the person. It connects to any database on the person and logs the data. That makes the rumor of license plate auto scanners on Veterans Parkway a less violation of privacy, doesn’t it? The police state/Babylon rising grows.
    A quote by Patrick Henry at the Virginia ratification convention of June 5, 1788 seems once to remember.

  • Where does the lottery revenue go?

    I am often asked about how the Kentucky Lottery funds are used in our state. The money raised has provided $2 billion in scholarship and grants for our students in Kentucky.
    In my Senate District for the fiscal year of 2013, 4176 grants and scholarships that were worth $7,289,377 were awarded to our students. By counties, in my district it is evident that thousands of students are recipients of major funds for higher education.
    • Casey County: 537 grants and scholarships worth $888,230

  • Legislation designed to help others

    As we near the end of February, the General Assembly has a predictably full agenda heading into what is always its busiest month of the year.
    Enacting a budget to run state government remains our biggest task. The House’s Appropriations and Revenue Committee is right on schedule, however, with its seven budget review subcommittees close to finishing their modifications of Governor Beshear’s proposal. A vote by the full chamber will be held by early March.
