  • Stepping towards grace

    Since my friend Mike has been sober, he’s taken me to one of his AA meetings every so often.
    I don’t struggle with alcohol, but I have my own compulsions and obsessions.
    It’s my opinion that every one of us is addicted to something and that those somethings can and do change, sometimes daily.

  • Senate’s short week ‘significant’

    Although week three of the General Assembly was short due to the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday and the inclement weather Friday, the Kentucky Senate passed significant bills and welcomed visitors who braved the snow in Frankfort.
    On Tuesday we passed two of our priority bills: Senate Bill (SB) 4 and SB 10. SB 4 would require those seeking an abortion to have a face-to-face, in-person counseling session with a physician 24 hours prior to the procedure. This effort to promote the rights of the unborn passed with bipartisan support.

  • Several bills move forward despite short work week

    With the General Assembly off on Monday for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday and on Friday because of the snow, last week was an especially short one for legislators.
    A reduced schedule didn’t keep the House from moving several bills forward, however.
    On Wednesday, for example, the chamber’s Judiciary Committee put its support behind House Bill 229, which would give the Attorney General’s office jurisdiction to pursue and prosecute human trafficking cases. 

  • AG warns of another scam

    FRANKFORT, KY. – Kentuckians are being targeted over the phone by scam artists claiming to be a “Sergeant Joe Crews” who can help them resolve a federal warrant that has been issued against them.
    Attorney General Andy Beshear is warning consumers not to fall for this scam, the latest in a series of scams that his Office of Consumer Protection is tracking across Kentucky.
    “These scam artists are using fear to prey on Kentuckians,” Beshear said. “If you receive the call, hang up.”
