  • Rand previews 2012 Kentucky House session

    Early this week, the General Assembly returned to the Capitol to begin another legislative session, which in even-numbered years lasts for 60 days and runs through mid-April.

    Governor Beshear will help set the stage when he gives his State of the Commonwealth address this week and, later this month, presents his two-year budget proposal.  Redist-ricting, something done each decade to align the state’s legislative and Kentucky Supreme Court boundaries to changes in population, will also be a major issue in the session’s opening days.

  • We are built for great things

    Last month my husband and I went to Charlotte, N.C., one of our favorite cities.

    We stayed uptown — which I would call downtown, but what do I know? — right in the middle of all the tall buildings and skyscrapers.

    I have a confession to make. I love buildings. I mean, I love, l-o-v-e buildings, like chocoholics love chocolate and pie-aholics love pie. Well, maybe not that much, but I love architecture and design, Gothic arches and flying buttresses.

  • We have a moral responsibility to care for animals

    Two weeks ago, I was on the scene of a puppy mill raid in Henry County.  I saw hundreds of animals living in unspeakable conditions. There were dogs in crates stacked two and three high; in most cases, the animals were standing almost knee deep in a mixture of their own feces and urine. There were cats in crates with litter boxes filled to the brim in waste. They had no water and little food.

  • Dick Willhite among Trimble sailors in war zone on Dec. 7, 1941

    For The Trimble Banner

    I enjoyed the recent article published in The Trimble Banner on Pearl Harbor so much. It brought back so many memories of my brother and the impact it had on my family at that time.

    Several men from our county were named in the article and among them was my brother Richard “Dick” Willhite. Although I was small at the time it was a time that knowing my “hero,” my oldest brother, was in danger and the concerns we had for him even got through to a young girl.
