    NEW CASTLE – Megan Payton’s 17-point outburst in the second half wasn’t enough to help the Henry County Lady Cats come back from a 16-point second half deficit against North Oldham Thursday in a 48-36 Lady Mustang win.

  • Senate starting quickly

    “Creating Kentucky jobs and strengthening Kentucky families” -- this is how our caucus defined the overall goals of the Senate this session, and I’m proud to report that four of our priority bills to accomplish those objectives passed the Senate in our first week, and are now on the way to the House.

    As the Senate has done in previous sessions under the direction of Senate President Robert Stivers, members of leadership were elected prior to the start of session so when the 2015 General Assembly convened, we were able to get straight to business.
