  • YMCA offers summer swimming safety advice

    BY Beth Kempf

    Oldham County Family YMCA Aquatics Director

    Sometime this summer, almost everyone in this community will be in or near the water, and most people will have a safe and healthy time.

Just two and a half hours of swimming or water aerobics a week can provide basic fitness. Water-based physical activity also improves adults’ ability to carry out everyday activities.

  • Returning from a year down under

    By U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell

    Kentuckians know by now that President Obama has declared a War on Coal. That’s clear from the 7,000 coal jobs that have been lost since 2009 when this president took office. Eastern Kentucky alone has already seen a three-percent loss in coal jobs in the first quarter of 2014.

  • Strengthening government committment to care for veterans

    By Alison Lundergan Grimes, candidate for U.S. Senate

    Our military heroes make the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our freedom and we owe so much to every veteran who has worn our nation’s uniform.

    Like all Kentuckians, I am horrified by reports of deadly neglect of patients at hospitals operated by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Although a full investigation is still in progress, it is apparent that at least several dozen former service personnel died while awaiting treatment at VA facilities.

    This situation is intolerable.
