  • The men hunt, the women shop

    I have a friend who is refreshingly candid about her passionate love of shopping. She shops predominantly for clothes but she also enjoys finding furnishings for her home. While her husband makes a comfortable living, she zeroes in on sales and discounts. I’ve gone shopping with her and, for all of her zeal, she doesn’t buy on impulse. She has a clear idea about what she wants and she goes right after it.

  • Budget is top priority in 2010

    When the General Assembly returns to the Capitol each January in even-numbered years, its top priority is never in doubt: Enact a budget to run state government for the next two years.

    The task begins when the governor submits his or her proposal during the opening days of the legislative session.  At that point, the House of Representatives decides what changes it might like to make, with the Senate then doing the same.  Leaders from both chambers then seek a compromise that is voted on in the session’s final days.
