  • Guest Column: Rick Rand

    While the just-completed legislative sessions will likely be remembered for two things – averting a crisis within Medicaid and enacting a far-reaching reform of our penal code – that should not overshadow the fact that quite a few other prominent bills are also now law.

    Since this was not a budget year, and we’re still recovering economically, most of the changes made by the General Assembly during the last few months do not involve much, if any, money.  Still, these laws will positively affect the public in ways large and small in the years ahead.

  • Good job Jimmy!


    Jimmy Simpson’s explanation in last week’s Local about saving money on the Henry County Water project was refreshing to read, especially in these times when no one seems to care how much money they spend, or whose money it is they are spending. Good job Jimmy! Now if I could just convince you to become a Wildcat fan!

  • Tornado victims express thanks


    On Feb. 28, 2011, our home was destroyed by the tornado in Eminence, Ky.  We are so grateful to be a part of such a supportive and generous community.  There are not enough words to express our heartfelt gratitude.  Thank you so much.  Your kindness will never be forgotten.

  • Maybe I am just a little bit crazy

    It occurred to me somewhere around midnight Saturday, when I woke up for the umpteenth time in less than a couple of hours. I tugged the double layer fleece blanket, wool blanket and sleeping bag down from my face and squinted at the top of my tent.

    I sat up, and realized I wasn’t imagining things. There was snow. And not just a few flakes. A bunch. I slapped and shook the tent sides to knock the snow off, while Rufus (the Mallowmar dog) kindly stole the warm spot I left behind on my sleeping bag.

    During the legislative session that ended earlier this month, Kentuckians saw a textbook example of what positive things can happen when both parties in the General Assembly come together and work toward the Commonwealth’s greater good.
