     Not a fan of caucus

     

    I am glad JD Sparks thinks the caucus was so great. As for me my wife and my daughter we don’t think so. 

    We tried to go vote, but traffic was backed up forever. We finally gave up and left. First time I have not voted in about 50 years. 

    Go back to regular polling places instead of one place.

  • Proud of Oldham County

    As the Chair of the Oldham County Republican Presidential Caucus I want to say that I was amazed at the turnout for the caucus on March 5.  Finally, Kentucky is relevant again in national elections.  And people were excited to make sure their voices were heard.  

  • Displaced by Cedar Lake

    I am the parent of one of the clients displaced by Cedar Lake’s programming cuts.  My son attended their day program for a number of years.  He does not need a nurse to be on site all of the time.  

    I know of other clients who also do not need a nurse.  When I asked the CEO, Mr. Stevenson, why my son was asked to leave, he responded that he was cut because he needed “more intense supervision” and that this was known as “other cost saving measures.”

  • State senate addresses disability care

    By Ernie Harris, Ky. Senator

    The passage of bills that would help children with disabilities, preserve rights of victims in criminal cases, and fight for the rights of the unborn highlighted another busy week in the Senate. As Thursday marked day 40 of our 60-day legislative session in Frankfort, we are still anxiously awaiting a budget bill from our colleagues in the House.

  • Freezin' for a reason

    My kids and I have a history of silly, cold-weather activities, ranging from making snow angels in our bathing suits to swimming in glacial Lake Superior.  

  • Hidden Blessings

    Years ago I went to visit a parishioner at a local hospital.  I will always remember walking down the corridor to a room with the door closed.  15 teenagers stood outside.  One woman in particular seemed to be bent over with grief.  The others were gathered around her to offer comfort and encouragement.  This was an unusual scene along the normally quiet and empty hospital hallways.  I visited with them long enough to understand.
