• Protecting military voters

    I want to thank Allison Lundergan Grimes for standing up for Kentucky’s military. Our military members make tremendous sacrifices to protect our rights and they deserve our best efforts to preserve their right to vote. It’s refreshing to see an elected official making that effort. I hope members of the General Assembly will join Secretary Grimes in standing up for the military and pass Senate Bill 1 as it was originally filed.

  • Pleasureville Economic Developemen

    Commissioner Diane Perry and I Commissioner Shawn Mertz  would like to invite all interested citizens, business owners, church leaders, and any other interested parties to the next Pleasureville city Commission meeting to discuss future economic development and city growth.  Henry County Judge Executive John Logan Brent, Magistrate Jerry Beasley, Shelby County Judge Executive Rob Rothenburger, Magistrate Bill Hedges will be present for the meeting. 

  • A new approach

    Prior to the mid-1970s, Kentucky’s judiciary looked nothing as it does today. There were nearly 1,000 courts back then, with many often having overlapping jurisdictions, and there was only one high court to handle all appeals. In a word, it was inefficient.

  • Trash the butts

    It isn’t trash! Or is it? Would you throw that cigarette butt on your living room floor, on your kitchen floor? Of course not! You’d be sure it wasn’t burning, and you’d put it in the trash. After all, a cigarette butt is trash, isn’t it? Look at our streets and roadsides. Cigarette butts, tossed carelessly, line our curbs, parking lots and roadsides.

  • Honored to call you friends

    On behalf of my wife and family, I’d like to thank all of you who have been supporting us with prayers and help during my battle with cancer. Since my August diagnosis, we have been blessed with hundreds of cards, letters, prayer supports from churches, organizations and individuals, and tremendous outpourings of friendship from the county and beyond! It has been nothing short of amazing, and we are very indebted to you all!

  • Is no exception just greed?

    No extensions, no exceptions

    For the sake of argument with times being tight for a lot of people still struggling to make ends meet, why is Eminence Water Works doing this? If most of us customers are not paying our bills on time, I could understand some restrictions, but if that’s not the case then I would like for them to explain the reasons for this.

  • Hide your scissors!

    Start hording your scissors because the government is coming after them!

    A headline on WAVE3.com states that scissors were used in an attack on a man.

    Okay, this may be silly and I do not wish to make light of the recent shooting tragedies in our country. My heart goes out to all those who suffered loss especially of their children.

    As a father of five (soon to be six), I can assure you that I would be the first outraged and possibly the saddest of all if anything happened to one of my children. I can’t imagine.

  • A cause worth your money

    Are you sick of those annoying phone calls from telemarketers? Do you struggle as I do when deciding which cause should receive your hard-earned cash? How many checks do you write each year to help worthy causes? Do you really know where the money goes?

  • A pat on the back for preservation
  • List of priorities put together

    For most of Kentucky’s history, early January in odd-numbered years has been set aside to give the General Assembly time to elect House and Senate leaders and determine the make-up of the chambers’ committees for the next two years.
