  • Commission wants updates on theater program’s plans

    Kentucky Classic Theater now has a two-year contract with the City of Lebanon to use Centre Square for shows and events, and it has commitments of $15,000 from both Marion County Fiscal Court and the Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission. All of which were conditions the tourist commission included when it approved its funding for the theater program last month. On Jan. 12, the commission gave Executive Director Nena Olivier the go-ahead to send its funding to Robin Humphress, the founder of Kentucky Classic Theater.
    But, that's not the end of the conversation.

  • No ordinary fish

    I don’t know about you, but my mind has been consumed with “bad news” lately.

    He’s “manmade” so to speak.

    The Kentucky General Assembly convened its 2015 Regular Session this week, with more than 200 bills already filed and ready for consideration.
    In many years past, the first week of this off-year “short” session was spent mainly on formalities like electing leaders and appointing committees, with the real work of passing bills beginning in February. But with only 30 days to accomplish so much, I’m proud to say the Senate got down to business passing legislation.

  • Issues to be debated during legislative session

    Although legislative sessions in odd-numbered years are relatively new in Kentucky – the first was held in 2001 – the General Assembly has long met during the first full week of January in these years to elect House and Senate leaders and update committee assignments.
    While the top four leaders in both chambers remained the same last week, there were some changes in the other leadership positions; in fact, nine of the 16 House and Senate leaders are new.
