  • Love is in the air, let it heal

    As you survey your life, tune back into the healing quality of love and the fulfillment it brings. Your body lets you know through your physical symptoms when and where there is trouble. Listen to your body’s signals of trauma and emotional duress and be more aware of your own inner knowing to feel what is transpiring in your own body systems. You need this same awareness of sensitivity to accurately deal with your relationships with others.

    As I mentioned in last week’s column, here at the paper we never know what kind of conversation we’ll have when the phone rings.
    Recently, as I picked up the phone a woman blurted out, “Do you believe God talks to you through your dreams?”
    My first thought: Is this a trick question? Does she believe it or does she believe it’s hocus pocus hooey balooey?
    My second thought: I hope she didn’t dream that God wants her to run me over with a forklift.

There are many different opinions and philosophies on how to spend the money, raise revenue, and support the important public services for Kentucky.  The budget is the ultimate statement of priorities for the Commonwealth.

  • Legislators dash to finish agenda of current session

    If legislative sessions start like a marathon, they end like a 100-yard dash, as the House and Senate make a final push to turn their goals into law.
    Leading the agenda, of course, is the state’s two-year budget and highway plan.  Legislative leaders began meeting Wednesday to hammer out a compromise, and the good news is that there is some broad area of agreement.
