  • Wrapup of Senate session

    As with much of life, the 2011 General Assembly Session had its share of successes and disappointments. We made advances in economic development, education, and healthcare and definitely raised the debate on what is the appropriate conservative use of the tax dollar and did our best to sound the alarm about what happens when the bill finally comes due.

  • Letter to the Editor

    Editor:

    I was very fortunate to have attended the 2011 Washington, D.C., trip with the Trimble County High School junior and senior students on April 4-8.

Busy schedules and rushing adds years to our appearance and causes a decline in organ function. It is critically important to take time out to relax and indulge ourselves at times.

  • New laws in place after special session

  • Senate seeks to override vetoes

    Last week, I reported that both the House and the Senate voted for a responsible approach to resolving the Medicaid budget shortfall. Unfortunately, late Friday, the Governor vetoed all the key accountability provisions and is now left with an open checkbook combined with an unlimited credit card funded with your tax dollars.
