Today's Opinions

  • House considers bills to provide consumer protection

    When it comes to the public’s safety and well-being, consumer protection may not always grab the headlines, but that doesn’t diminish its importance.

    It was the key theme last week in the Kentucky House, which moved forward not one but four bills touching on this issue.

  • Extra! Extra! Henry County Local among best in Ky.

    You hold in your hands one of the best newspapers in Kentucky. 

    Although that is my personal opinion, you don’t have to take that at face value. We have proof.

    Last week at an awards presentation of the Kentucky Press Association, The “Henry County Local,” your community newspaper, earned a third place award for overall General Excellence among like-sized weekly newspapers across the state.

  • Response to letter
  • Services for veterans

    On behalf of the patients and staff of the Robley Rex VA Medical Center, I am writing to take this opportunity to introduce Richard Hayes, an approved volunteer for the medical center. Richard Hayes has accepted a position as community outreach volunteer, working closely with the Hospice and Palliative Care and our veterans served by this very important program.

  • House focuses on infrastructure, economic development

    The General Assembly debates dozens of bills each legislative session, but most fall under several broad categories: education, health and public safety, infrastructure and economic development.

    Those last two were the chief focus of the Kentucky House’s work last week, as my colleagues and I approved legislation that would make it easier for government and the private sector to work together and that would take an in-depth look at the state’s workforce development programs.

  • Movie star visits Frankfort, several bills pass Senate

    With many guests, packed committee meetings and energetic rallies, it was another exciting week in Frankfort. Hollywood stars, national organizations and winter weather greeted the Kentucky General Assembly during week six of the 2016 Session.

    The national organization Save The Children, which promotes early childhood learning, had its Action Network President Mark Shriver and actress Jennifer Garner testify in Frankfort on behalf of the organization and their work throughout Kentucky.

  • Republican caucus nears

    With the Iowa Presidential Caucus completed, and the announcement last week that Sen. Rand Paul has suspended his presidential campaign, we have received calls regarding The Republican Party of Kentucky’s Presidential Caucus. 

    The Kentucky Presidential Caucus will be held 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 5. In Henry County, the Caucus will be held at the 4-H Building at the Henry County Fairgrounds.
