  • 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.

  • Considering the heavens

    Have you ever wondered why the world is so beautiful, so impressive, so big? Nobody knows how big the heavens are with millions, maybe billions, of stars. Why is it that every morning the glory of a sunrise comes over the earth and every evening the quiet beauty of a sunset?

  • Family and powerful necessities

  • Being the next president is all about the ten percent

    Let’s talk about the president. Not the current president — the next president.

    We don’t know who the next president will be. All we know is that it won’t be Barack Obama. For about 45 percent of Americans, that’s a great thing. For another 45 percent, that’s a bad thing. For the other 10 percent, the good or bad may be based on who the next president will be.

  • New Year, new foods

    The New Year is here and we can vow to eat healthier this year. Maybe you should try a new restaurant, here locally we have Mexican, Chinese or Italian, among others. I have to go to Louisville to get Irish, German or other unique ethnic foods.

  • Letter to the editor: Thanks to DDL volunteers

    As the Executive Director of Discover Downtown La Grange, I wanted to take a moment to thank the community leaders, first responders, Public Works, sponsors and volunteers for sharing their holiday time to come together for Light Up La Grange. They worked so hard putting it all together. For me personally, I feel very blessed to have worked with such a great crew of helpers. And wow — what an amazing turnout!
