  • Key bills make it to the Governor

    Although several major issues are still pending, the General Assembly wrapped up much of its work early last week, and for a “short” legislative session, there is already a fairly long list of key bills that have made it to Governor Beshear’s desk.

  • I just want my stairs back

    The stairs were removed from the inside wall of the KOI building on Main Street and laid out in the parking lot last week on their way to their new home in the new Browning’s building. I spent all one night cleaning off the loft we were going to use the steps on, only to find them gone. I have reported them to the police as stolen, however we have considered the possibility someone picked them up from outside the building thinking we were discarding them. If so, please bring them back. They are not yours. All will be forgiven!

  • Protecting military voters

    I want to thank Allison Lundergan Grimes for standing up for Kentucky’s military. Our military members make tremendous sacrifices to protect our rights and they deserve our best efforts to preserve their right to vote. It’s refreshing to see an elected official making that effort. I hope members of the General Assembly will join Secretary Grimes in standing up for the military and pass Senate Bill 1 as it was originally filed.

  • Pleasureville Economic Developemen

    Commissioner Diane Perry and I Commissioner Shawn Mertz  would like to invite all interested citizens, business owners, church leaders, and any other interested parties to the next Pleasureville city Commission meeting to discuss future economic development and city growth.  Henry County Judge Executive John Logan Brent, Magistrate Jerry Beasley, Shelby County Judge Executive Rob Rothenburger, Magistrate Bill Hedges will be present for the meeting. 

  • A new approach

    Prior to the mid-1970s, Kentucky’s judiciary looked nothing as it does today. There were nearly 1,000 courts back then, with many often having overlapping jurisdictions, and there was only one high court to handle all appeals. In a word, it was inefficient.

  • Trash the butts

    It isn’t trash! Or is it? Would you throw that cigarette butt on your living room floor, on your kitchen floor? Of course not! You’d be sure it wasn’t burning, and you’d put it in the trash. After all, a cigarette butt is trash, isn’t it? Look at our streets and roadsides. Cigarette butts, tossed carelessly, line our curbs, parking lots and roadsides.

  • Honored to call you friends

    On behalf of my wife and family, I’d like to thank all of you who have been supporting us with prayers and help during my battle with cancer. Since my August diagnosis, we have been blessed with hundreds of cards, letters, prayer supports from churches, organizations and individuals, and tremendous outpourings of friendship from the county and beyond! It has been nothing short of amazing, and we are very indebted to you all!

  • Is no exception just greed?

    No extensions, no exceptions

    For the sake of argument with times being tight for a lot of people still struggling to make ends meet, why is Eminence Water Works doing this? If most of us customers are not paying our bills on time, I could understand some restrictions, but if that’s not the case then I would like for them to explain the reasons for this.

  • Hide your scissors!

    Start hording your scissors because the government is coming after them!

    A headline on WAVE3.com states that scissors were used in an attack on a man.

    Okay, this may be silly and I do not wish to make light of the recent shooting tragedies in our country. My heart goes out to all those who suffered loss especially of their children.

    As a father of five (soon to be six), I can assure you that I would be the first outraged and possibly the saddest of all if anything happened to one of my children. I can’t imagine.

  • A cause worth your money

    Are you sick of those annoying phone calls from telemarketers? Do you struggle as I do when deciding which cause should receive your hard-earned cash? How many checks do you write each year to help worthy causes? Do you really know where the money goes?
