Ever wonder what it’s like to know what the Kentucky State Police do every day and just exactly how they do it?
Thanks to an initiative by KSP Commissioner Rodney Brewer, ordinary folks like me can participate in the Citizens Police Academy. The academy is a series of classes spread over 12 weeks and designed to give participants a better look at the what, why and how of the Kentucky State Police.

Work on the I-71 utility bore in Campbellsburg hit a snag last month.
More specifically, the auger used for the bore hit some unexpected rock, and began to come up, slightly, through the median of the interstate.
Dan Shoemaker, with Tetra-Tech, updated members of the Campbellsburg City Council about progress on the project, which has been stalled for several weeks. “I hoped to come here tonight and tell you the bore was completed under I-71, but it’s not,” he said.
Roy Winchester is a tough, pragmatic educator who, by his own account, has given 50 years to Henry County Public Schools.
He is well-known for going through monthly statements, meticulously scrutinizing and questioning district expenditures. So, it was a surprise when the 27-year school board veteran sat quietly while board president Donnie Tipton asked if there were any questions on November spending.
“Mr. Winchester,” queried Tipton?
“I make a motion to pay the bills,” Winchester said.
Editor’s note: Amanda Smith is an alias we have assigned to a source in this story to protect the privacy of her children.
When she called in November looking for help with Christmas, it already was too late to apply for inclusion in most local charitable programs. Amanda Smith, who asked that her name be witheld, said she had never requested assistance for her children before and seemed distraught that she had found more red tape than red ribbon.
