  • Primary differences between versions of budget

    In one sense, Kentucky’s budget doesn’t change much from year to year.  A little more than half of every state dollar, for example, goes to our schools, colleges and universities.  Another fourth is dedicated to Medicaid and other health services, a little more than a tenth is spent on criminal justice and the final dime goes to everything else.

  • Bunnies don't lay eggs, or do they?

    As a child, Easter was a favorite holiday, behind Christmas and Halloween. Each came with copious amounts of candy, which my sweet tooth enjoyed immensely. At this time of year, I still indulge in at least one bag of jelly beans.

  • Bracket challenge indeed

    To say that this year’s NCAA tourney has been a challenge for me is to put it mildly. First of all, I decided to change to a different website for our Henry Hoopla contest this year.

    I made this decision last year after we had several people tell me they had trouble accessing the CBSSports.com site for March Madness.
