  • Consumer protection, meth lab reduction focus of Senate action

    Another week goes by in a whirl of legislative meetings, visits from hometown folks and organized groups such as 4-H and the 874K Coalition. Even though the House has yet to act on the budget proposal, senators continue to educate ourselves and monitor the budget meetings in the House.  In addition, senators continue to meet in small groups to review the different budget needs of the various agencies. We expect to receive the House proposal next week.

  • KSP posts to help storm victims

    In the wake of the severe weather and tornado outbreaks across Kentucky, KSP posts and headquarters will serve as designated drop off sites for items needed in devastated communities. The need has arisen for a reputable location that citizens feel comfortable leaving donations, knowing they will reach the people in most need.  This will also limit the number of people traveling into these stricken areas (to deliver items) allowing first responders more access to people in need.

    Nineteen-year-old firefighter Andrew Stark watched as dark, swirling storm clouds rushed at him as he stood outside Milton Fire Station No. 2 on Friday afternoon. A number of volunteers preparing for a planned ALS fundraiser set for the following day had been in earlier but had scattered for their homes when the storm warnings sounded. Now Stark manned the station alone.
