  • Analysis of state’s traffic accident trends offered

    About a decade ago, Kentucky started to see a welcome trend as the number of highway fatalities began a steady decline.
    Totals that regularly exceeded 900 a year before 2007 dropped to 638 in 2013, a figure not seen in the commonwealth since the 1940s.
    Unfortunately, that was as low as it would go. The number of fatalities on our roads last year was almost a fifth higher than the benchmark set just two years earlier, and through the first seven-plus months of this year, it’s eight percent ahead of where it was last August.

  • Superintendent addresses ‘stream of misinformation’

    Dear Readers,

  • Open letter to God

    Dear God,
    As you know, last Sunday morning I posted the following on Facebook:
    “Dear God,
    I’m trying to control the universe as best I can, but I think I’m failing at it. It might be time for me to step aside and let you take over -- I hear you laughing! -- but I’m not sure I know how to do that, seeing as I’ve been doing this for so long.
    “So, please be patient with me and don’t smite me with boils or ugly hair.
    “Thank you, NK”

  • Kentucky State Fair has something for everyone to enjoy

    Kentucky State Fair has something for everyone to enjoy
    Editor:
    Since 1902, people have traveled the Bluegrass State to come together at the Kentucky State Fair and celebrate being a part of our great Commonwealth, while discovering the very best of what it has to offer.
    The Kentucky State Fair performs the delicate balancing act of honoring the state’s rich history and reflecting the ever-evolving lives of those who call it home. At the heart of the Fair is the celebration and recognition of agriculture and our roots as an agrarian state.

  • Kentucky statistics compare well with sister states

    Kentucky received some welcome news last month when a national study found that no state had a smaller gap when comparing the high school graduation rates of students from low- and higher-income families.
    The average gap across the country stands at 15 percent, but it’s just one percent here in the commonwealth. In fact, our low-income students graduate at a higher rate than the overall national average, something only five other states can say.
