  • A bitter pill to swallow
  • 10 tips to make the most of attending a career fair

    If you’re a job seeker, one of the most valuable benefits of a career fair is the rare opportunity to speak directly to employers who are hiring. It’s a chance to make an impression, and in some cases get an on-the-spot interview. Career fairs are also a way for you to learn information about a company that might not be in its job postings or on its website.

  • How much is enough?

    People have differing views on matters concerning our school system in Marion County and I respect different opinions on these issues.

  • Remember in November

    Kentucky Retirement Systems stakeholders are shocked and appalled by the actions of the General Assembly regarding public pensions. Last week, in the space of about nine hours, the majority party produced a 291-page pension bill and voted it out of the House and Senate. Senate Bill 151 awaits Gov. Matt Bevin’s signature.

  • Dear citizen

    Dear citizen,

    “The advantage of being armed…the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation…in the several kingdoms of Europe…the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” (James Madison, The Federalist, 46) (p.107, vol.71, firearms news)

    Beware of Federal Bill 5087.

  • Déjà vu all over again

    I’m so proud and amazed by these children who are protesting and organizing marches to end the gun violence. For me, this is, “Déjà vu, all over again…” (Yogi Bara).

  • Bills move to the finish line, budget work ongoing

    President Lincoln once said, “Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.” This is one piece of advice that I am taking to heart as we head into the final stretch of the 2018 session.

  • Senate passes its version of pension reform

    Rapidly nearing the last days of the 2018 regular session, the Senate passed our version of the state budget during the 12th week. The executive branch budget, contained in House Bill 200, put an emphasis on public safety by investing in law enforcement, the state crime lab, frontline social workers, and foster and adoption services. I voted yes on HB 200 to move the process along, and the budget now goes to conference committee.
