    SPECIAL NOTICES

  • Breaking down the biennial budget

    When it comes to setting the state’s priorities, no other legislation plays a bigger role than the state’s budget.  It funds our schools, keeps us safe, maintains our highways, strengthens our collective health and affects our lives in countless other ways.

  • Marsy’s Law, statewide elections among bills passed by state Senate

    The threat of extreme winter weather conditions caused us to call off session in Frankfort on Friday, but not before we passed significant bills in the Senate earlier in the week.

  • Looking Back and Do You Remember | Jan. 18

    Jan. 21, 1988 (30 years ago)

    The Public Service Commission heard testimony filed on behalf of the Kentucky Industrial Utility Customers that LG&E failed to examine other power sources prior to starting construction on the Trimble County plant. An LG&E representative called the plant the best solution for providing customers with power and that the utility had also looked at buying power from other companies. The plant was scheduled for completion in 1991.

  • Created for a purpose

    Living a life of purpose reflects who you are deep inside, your beliefs, values and passion for living. It is about following your heart and doing what you love to do with passion and purpose.

  • God bless the neighbor ladies

    It’s been a while since my neighbor lady has wreaked havoc on my life.

    However, this past week she made up for lost time.

    To bring you up to speed on who my neighbor lady is: She’s my evil twin, my alter ego, an overbearing, intrusive buttinsky mother who has trouble remembering that once the umbilical cord is cut moments after birth, it should not and cannot ever be reattached and it is futile and foolish to even try – although she’s been trying for more than 40 years.

  • Ways to save on winter heating costs

    With the winter we have had so far, chances are you’ve seen at least one or two high heating bills. While home heating costs can put a strain on your wallet during the winter, you can do certain things to help save money while still keeping your home warm.

    Sunlight, even in the winter, is a great way to add natural, free warmth to your home. Open your blinds and curtains during the day, particularly on south-facing walls as they get the most exposure to the sun. As the sun sets, close them to help trap in the warmth.
