  • Make 2017 the ‘Explore the Great Outdoors’ year

    For many of us, our fondest childhood memories were made outdoors, swinging, running, fishing and exploring nature. That’s not the case for many children today. Many of them spend very little time outdoors and too much time in front of computers, tablets and other electronic devices. Let’s change these statistics by making getting outdoors a priority for our families in 2017.

  • Bits, pieces and random musings about grace

    It seems the older I get, the less space I have in my brain, like all the file folders in the filing cabinet are full.
    More often than I care to admit, I’ll write myself a quick note intending to develop it into a column later, but when later comes I’ll have no clue what I was thinking when I wrote the note.
    However, all is not hopeless, as occasionally I go through my folder of assorted notes and cobble together a column of bits and pieces and random musings in the hope that something might be helpful to someone.

  • Electoral College worked as the Founding Fathers intended

    The Electoral College system performed just as the Founders intended in the 2016 presidential election.
    The institution has taken a lot of criticism in recent years. It has been referred to as archaic, particularly after elections in which the successful candidate won both the electoral and popular votes.
    This year was different. Disappointed Hillary Clinton voters raised a hue and cry about the fact that she lost the presidency in the Electoral College despite receiving more of the popular vote than Donald Trump did.

  • DO YOU REMEMBER?
  • General Assembly’s 2017 Regular Session underway

    This week, the General Assembly returns to the Capitol to begin the 2017 Regular Session. Although the House and Senate are as old as Kentucky, this is only the ninth odd-year legislative session since our current state constitution was adopted in the late 1800s.
    We actually were one of the last states to have its legislature meet annually. Now, there are just four that have not made the switch: Montana, Nevada, North Dakota and Texas.
