  • Close the door softly

    What does it mean to close the door softly?

    It refers to letting things have a peaceful ending. This applies whether this is about a relationship, a job, or any affiliation. When we try to force things into a certain framework or outcome, they just don’t work. Sometimes someone wants a certain individual in their life so much that he/she tries to change this person, or manipulate them. Perhaps we think nagging, bullying or yelling will be an effective motivation to change.

  • Education initiative reviewed

    It has been a little more than 15 years since the General Assembly revamped Kentucky’s postsecondary system and set a series of far-reaching goals to reach by the year 2020.

    If that seemed a long time down the road in 1997, it doesn’t seem too far now. The good news is that, in many ways, we’re well within reach of what we had hoped to achieve. We got the latest update last month, when the Council on Postsecondary Education presented a comprehensive snapshot of our progress in recent years.
