  • General Assembly has a lot to consider

    Early this week, the General Assembly returned to the Capitol to begin another legislative session, which in even-numbered years lasts for 60 days and runs through mid-April.  

    Gov. Beshear will help set the stage when he gives his State of the Commonwealth address this week and, later this month, presents his two-year budget proposal. Redistricting, something done each decade to align the state’s legislative and Kentucky Supreme Court boundaries to changes in population, will also be a major issue in the session’s opening days.

  • Declining the rose-colored glasses

    While in New Castle last week I ran into Voltaire and his friend Dr Pangloss.   The following conversation took place between myself and Dr Pangloss;  Voltaire seemed quite drowsy.

    Myself: “So what brings you to our county?”

    Dr. Pangloss: “We heard that your county, during this recession and falling property values and tax base, is still so optimistic that you have gone on a building spree.”

    Myself: “Yes, our wise leaders seem to be very optimistic.”
