    FRANKFORT, Ky. – St. Patrick’s Day is Monday, March 17, and the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety is reminding drivers not to get behind the wheel if they’ve been drinking.

  • New falcon box in place on bridge

    The peregrine falcons that have made the Milton-Madison Bridge their home over the years have a new nest.  A new falcon box has been put in place on the underside of the new bridge over the water. 
    Since 2002, falcons have been known to make the bridge their nesting spot.  When the new Milton-Madison Bridge work began, the project took measures to protect these birds of prey.  As construction progressed, the falcon box was located on old pier #5 – the only pier that was not being re-used.  Two weeks ago, the old pier was demolished.

  • Senate awaits action on House budget

    As March rolls along, we are near the end of our work in Frankfort for this session. Although we did not have session on Monday due to the wintery weather conditions, the Senate continues to work on bills to make governmental processes more efficient, clean up statutes and save taxpayer money.

  • Juvenile issues, medical decisions studied by House

    The week may have been cut short by a day because of another round of winter weather, but the Kentucky House of Representatives didn’t let that stand in the way of approving a broad collection of bills.
    Those ranged from the relatively simple – helping sheriff’s departments fill vacancies – to the morally complex, which in this case would build on the current directives people have regarding what life-saving measures, if any, they want taken.
