  • Free will pays off or you pay for it

    The recent events in Cleveland at first left me perplexed.

    Ariel Castro held three women captive, one for at least 10 years, and his neighbors never knew it nor suspected it.

    Castro allegedly fathered a child with one of his captives, made the woman give birth in a kiddie pool and not one neighbor heard a thing.

    Residents who lived in the neighborhood never suspected a thing from the bus driver/musician who played baseball with children at local parks.

  • General Assembly has come a long way with innovation

    By Rick Rand

     

    Kentucky has gotten a lot of attention over the years when it comes to finding innovative ways to govern.  Our education reforms of the 1990s were hailed as national models, for example, and we are the only state to permanently dedicate half of our annual tobacco settlement payments to agriculture, a move that has played a key role in the industry’s record sales in recent years.

  • Boost your older home’s energy efficiency

    Over the years, improved technology has made many new homes more energy efficient, but you shouldn’t shy away or move from an older home just for better energy efficiency. You can upgrade your older home to make it energy efficient.
    Prior to the mid-20th century, fully automated, controlled and mechanized heating, cooling and ventilation systems did not exist. Instead, older homes had passive and manual features incorporated into their design to meet heating, cooling and ventilation needs.

  • Stay productive, not busy

    By Lance Minnis

    Two weeks ago, I went riding on my new bicycle out of Eminence and into the countryside. My thoughts as rambling as my bike, I let my mind wander across the scenery, and whatever fancies occurred as I rode.

    As I came cycling over a hill, I saw a man on his expensive zero turn riding mower cutting the grass of an enormous yard. At least 20 acres in size, the poor man must cut that grass at least once per week, at the cost of several hours each time.
