    Historical, life-saving legislation was approved by the Kentucky General Assembly during the final hours of the 2015 Session. Senate Bill 192, a comprehensive approach to stymie the scourge of heroin addiction in Kentucky, reached final passage after countless hours of bipartisan work throughout the session. In fact, this is the third year the Senate has led the charge on an anti-heroin bill. SB 192 was signed into law Wednesday morning by Gov. Beshear and is now in effect due to an emergency clause.

  • Alps tragedy prompts precious reminder

    Had anybody looked through my windshield while sitting in the public parking lot behind the Henry County Local for about 10 minutes after my arrival at work last Thursday, they would have seen me perplexed and stunned.

    I heard then for the first time over the radio how truly terrible the Germanwings plane crash in Europe that killed 150 people is. The horror goes beyond the death toll to disbelief about human behavior.

    After all the first and second round upsets this NCAA tourney has come down to four of college basketball’s traditional powers: Kentucky, Wisconsin, Michigan State and the team whose name we do not speak.

    Some people may argue that Wisconsin should not be included as a basketball blue blood because they were a non-factor in the tournament for nearly 50 years, but Dick Bennett and Bo Ryan have made the Badgers into a powerhouse team in the last 15 years or so.
