  • Moist summer eans more mosquitoes

    With the moist summer we’ve had so far, mosquitoes have had a prime environment to flourish and become a prevalent pest. They can make your life downright miserable, and to top that off, some species can transmit serious diseases. Unfortunately, there is no easy solution for managing mosquitoes. Countless products on the market claim to be effective and easy to use, but few have appreciable value in lessening the annoyance and incidence of bites. 

  • The Meaning of Success

    By Lance Minnis

    The topic of success has been on my mind and in my conversation lately.

    A quick web dictionary search brings up several interesting definitions. My favorite, and the broadest, is simply “a result, or outcome.” Therefore, any result is a “success.” Probably the most commonly understood is ”the achievement of something desired, planned, or attempted” i.e. the completion of any task that has been planned and seen to its conclusion.

  • Stumbo’s stubborness is a problem for Ky.

    By Jon Clark

    Monday, the General Assembly began a special session called by Governor Beshear, to finish what should have been done a year ago. Redistricting. The Governor hopes the special session, which will cost over $60,000 a day, will only last five days, to “minimize the cost to taxpayers.”

    By law, the Commonwealth must reassess census data, and move House, Senate and Judicial districts as the population moves, so that districts have about the same population, across the state, to assure balanced representation.

  • Kentucky is faring well

    In today’s data-driven age, there is no shortage of comparative lists that states can use to check the progress they’re making.  The rankings may not shed much light individually, but when enough are brought together, a much clearer picture begins to emerge.
    With that in mind, Kentucky and 14 of her fellow southern states got a chance earlier this summer to see how each stacks up in some especially crucial areas.
