  • Resolutions are part of our job, too

    Updating Kentucky’s laws may be the primary job of the General Assembly each legislative session, but it is not the only task legislators undertake. We also enact numerous resolutions that, in many cases, direct state government to focus on areas we feel are important.

    General Manager

    A little more than one year after advanced life support ambulance services became available in Henry County, officials agree it was worth the initial debate and added cost.

  • Yikes! It's a bit scary

    I’m not going to lie, I’ve had enough panic attacks lately to keep me huffing and puffing for days. After trying to ride my bicycle to work and home on a daily basis, I’ve learned that I’m no macho man. Us skinny, muscleless guys usually aren’t, but it just took me a few weeks of biking on the Henry County roads to figure that out.
