  • Turning into my mother is not a bad thing

    I find that the older I get, the more I resemble my mother – in appearance, in speech and mannerisms. That used to bum me out.

    Not any more.

    As a young woman, the last thing you want to hear is “you’re acting just like your mother.” We have friends who claim that very statement led them into one of the biggest fights of their marriage.

  • Proposed ordinance presents issues

    I’m not a resident of New Castle and thusly not a constituent of the elected officials, but I feel the need to comment on a recently proposed ordinance.  

  • Freedom of speech comes with accountability

    A recent news article that went largely unnoticed involved a young girl and her class photo.

    An Ohio eighth-grader named Sophie chose a black t-shirt with the word “FEMINIST” in white letters across the front to wear on class photo day. She had worn the shirt before, it did not break any dress code standards and no one said anything to her about it on that day.

  • Kentucky's efforts toward energy efficiency

    Even before it became a state in 1792, Kentucky’s energy potential was well-known.

    It all began in 1750, when Dr. Thomas Walker, one of Kentucky’s early explorers, discovered coal here, and our profile began expanding significantly 40 years later, when the first commercial coal mine opened in what is now Lee County.

  • Right to work may mean working for less

    A few counties have pinned their hopes for job growth and made a political point of passing local “right to work” laws, but the Kentucky Center for Economic Policy researchers say such laws could make the labor and wages situation worse instead of better.

    With half the states in the union having adopted these laws, any impact of new local and state governments introducing their own ordinances or statutes would be too diluted to matter, according to information from KCEP’s Anna Baumann.

  • Closing the food gap in Kentucky

    In recognition of National Volunteer Month, the Kentucky Association of Food Banks would like to honor the thousands of people in Kentucky who dedicate themselves to taking action against hunger. 

    The 800 local charitable feeding organizations in our network rely on a volunteer workforce to ensure that they can serve their clients. Each week 19,900 volunteers provide aid to food programs in the Commonwealth. The volunteers contribute a total of 81,200 hours per week.  

  • In support of Grossberg

    On May 19, I will proudly cast my vote for Daniel Grossberg for State Treasurer and so should you.   

    Daniel is a realtor who lives in Jefferson County with his wife Erica.  He is the youngest candidate in this race, which is his most redeeming quality as he brings a set of new ideas and a fresh perspective for this office.
