  • Winter makes me SAD, but spring warms my soul

    I always know when spring is close at hand when I run out of vitamin D.

    For the past few years, I have purchased a 90-day supply of vitamin D in late December or early January to ward off symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

  • A lesson learned from Miss Daisy and Hoke

    Donna and I recently watched Driving Miss Daisy, a 1989 movie starring Jessica Tandy (Miss Daisy) and Morgan Freeman (Hoke).  I was amazed at how much of the story I had forgotten, or didn’t get, from 25 years ago.  

    What I remembered was a story about a cantankerous old woman and a tenacious old African-American man who managed to become friends in spite of their differences.  There was more to the story.

  • Senate sends severals bills to House

    Submitted by Sen. Paul Hornback

    As we approach the final days of the 2015 Legislative Session, we have been working diligently to complete our consideration of Senate bills while also vetting legislation that has been passed by the House. We will begin considering several additional House bills next week.

  • Harvest Showcase committee asks for more community support

    Henry County has a proud farming heritage. Never have I seen it more appropriately on display than at the annual Henry County Harvest Showcase.

  • This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine

    The potential of solar power has not yet seen the light of day in Kentucky, but that could change with a little prodding of the General Assembly, according to the Community Farm Alliance.

  • Well deserved

    I personally want to thank Debbie Hartford for everything she has done for my son down through the years. If I could have been at the assembly I would have thanked her in person. Our kids are in such good hands at our school with so many dedicated faculty. That’s why our school doesn’t take a backseat to anyone. Go Warriors!

  • Help Kentucky's hungry and Kentucky's farmers

    When you donate a part of your state tax refund to the Farms to Food Banks Trust Fund, you’re helping Kentuckians in unfortunate circumstances – some of them your friends and neighbors – gain access to fresh, nutritious, local foods. You’re also helping Kentucky farmers make a living. It’s good for economic development, and it’s consistent with Kentucky values of compassion and generosity.

  • Ky. General Assembly 2015 session passes halfway mark

    There are milestones in each General Assembly session.

    This week’s arrival of the mid-point of the 2015 session is a noteworthy one. The halfway mark is a natural place to look back at the first half of the session and consider what’s been accomplished.
