    Families can take a free test drive of fishing fun during the first weekend of June.

    Kentucky celebrates free fishing weekend across the state June 1-2.

    Families and out-of-state visitors all can sample Kentucky’s fishing opportunities without having to buy a license or permit during this weekend.

    Over the long term, perhaps the best news came out of a 2012 Harvard study, which showed Kentucky tying for fifth among the states when measuring the gains our students have made over the last 20 years in math, reading and science.

    It all began quite innocently. My husband and I were in the process of establishing a primary health care provider here in Kentucky. After last year’s flu season, we had decided it would be in our best interest to have a local doctor. Many inquiries later, we had selected a physician; provided copies of medical records and made an appointment for the first visit.
