  • Public meeting on bridge rescheduled

    Due to Tuesday’s winter storm, the public meeting scheduled for that night with Milton-Madison Bridge project officials was cancelled.
    The meeting has been reschuduled for Tuesday, Jan. 18, at 6 p.m. at Milton Elementary School.

  • Senate considers several bills in 2011

    With fewer hours of daylight, colder temperatures and more wet weather, winter is often when “couch-potato syndrome” kicks in for many of us.
    Getting the proper amount of physical activity may require creative thinking, especially for children not involved in school sports programs. 
    Children should engage in at least one hour of physical activity every day. This does not have to happen all at one time. Just 10 minutes of physical activity at a time can result in health benefits.

  • Organization part one of legislative session

    At the start of January, there are two things that can always be counted on: It will take at least two weeks to write the new year correctly on such things as checks, and the General Assembly will return to the Frankfort to begin a new legislative session.
    That got under way this past week, when I and the other just-elected or re-elected members of the General Assembly were sworn in and the House and Senate leaders formally chosen.
