  • Legislative session underway

    en almost a week old at the time, but from a legislative viewpoint, it didn’t really begin until early last week, when all 100 members of the Kentucky House of Representatives and half of the state Senate were officially sworn into office.

    Within a few hours, legislators from both parties in both chambers began meeting to elect their leaders, and by the evening, a new one for the House was chosen: Rep. Greg Stumbo, who officially became House Speaker on Wednesday when he was approved without a dissenting vote.

  • McConnell thankful for time in Senate

    Thanks to the trust of the people of Kentucky, I’ve received the privilege of another term in the U.S. Senate. That’s an extraordinary gift from the voters, and I’m grateful to have the next six years to serve our Commonwealth and our country.

    As a new Congress and a new presidential administration begin, I look for lessons from great Kentuckians who have served our state in public office in the past. One who stands out is Wendell Ford.

  • Seeing the forest through the trees?

    Staff writer/photographer

    Jan Aaron said she was devastated when an old stand of pine trees recently was chopped down on the banks of Lake Jericho.

    Aaron has lived on the Bates Lane end of the lake for more than 20 years and fears the cutting of those trees will worsen conditions around the lake, especially soil erosion.

    “They are clean-cutting to the point where there isn’t a blade of grass,” Aaron said, “tall, healthy pine trees cut down.”

  • Is it safe for me to keep chickens again?

    When I was growing up in the 1950s on an upstate New York farm, a henhouse full of chickens supplied our family with eggs.  Still vivid in my memory are the special mailing cartons my mother used to send farm-fresh eggs 150 miles south to friends near New York City, perhaps because I was always amazed – and still am – that the eggs did not break en route.
