  • Tetanus prevention is important when banding bulls

    In the United States, more than 17 million bulls from 1-day-old to 1-year-old are castrated yearly. Tetanus is a potentially life-threatening neurologic disease affecting all species of domestic livestock, including cattle, so it’s important for producers to take steps to prevent it.

    Originally planned as a “military highway” between two U.S. Army installations in Kentucky – Camp Knox south of Louisville and Fort Thomas south of Cincinnati – the ribbon of concrete known as U.S. 42 served nearly four decades as the main thoroughfare between Louisville and Cincinnati.

  • Senate bill was wrong way to enact pension reforms

    Of all the facts and figures surrounding the public-pension debate, two speak volumes about what happened last Thursday at the Capitol: nine and 291.

    The first is about how many hours it took for House and Senate leaders to publicly unveil their plan to reform the state’s public retirement systems and then steamroll it through both chambers. The second, meanwhile, is the number of pages other legislators and I were somehow expected to read and understand before voting in that short timeframe.
