  • One Tank Trip: Henry Clay’s Ashland

    Henry Clay’s house Ashland stands as a bridge between the Revolutionary War and the Civil War.

    As a child, Clay witnessed British soldiers raid his house and grew up in slaveholding Hanover County, W.Va., in the same county as Patrick Henry where Henry County gets its name.

    County residents can reach Ashland in an hour. It is 60 miles from Eminence to Lexington and takes less than half a tank of gas.

  • Why Trayvon Martin matters

    "Can I ask you a question about the Trayvon Martin thing?”

    Sure.

    “That happened in Florida. Why are they rioting in Los Angeles? Sometimes I think they just like to riot out there.”

    Why? Principle.

    Because had the tables been reversed, the shooter might still be sitting in jail.

    Because racism in this country still is very, very much alive.

    Because a kid went to the convenience store for iced tea and candy and didn’t return home.

  • Is KIPDA report the ghost of economic development future?

    By John Parks

    Growing up, my dad subscribed to Popular Mechanics. I loved going through the issues and seeing the things that would be around when I became an adult. The issues predicted things like hover cars, personal jet packs and condos on the moon. I’m still waiting for my jet pack.

    By Katherine Jett

    Congestive heart failure is a chronic disease affecting about 5.7 million Americans. Kentucky has one of the highest CHF rates in the country.

    If you think about it, I bet that each of you can name at least one person with CHF. Many of you can probably name multiple people afflicted by chronic heart problems. Heart failure is responsible for 11 million physician visits each year and more hospitalizations than all forms of cancer combined.

    What is CHF?
