  • Higher education a necessity for Kentucky's future

    I’ve kept in contact with some very good friends at my alma mater, Eastern Kentucky University. Some friends have gone back after completing a degree to serve there and influence the next generation’s experience while others complete graduate degrees to enhance their post-college prospects. Although I couldn’t be on campus with them, I recently watched from afar at the prospect of cutting the budget...again, the third time in five years.

  • Legislators return tomorrow for session end

    The common thread binding all good legislation is that, by the time the actual vote arrives, the outcome is all but a foregone conclusion.

    It takes a lot of effort to get to that point, of course. Stakeholders need to be included early on, because they are the ones who will be most affected by any change, and the public must have the chance to weigh in as well. It’s a process that can take months, but when it works, the positive impact is measured in years.
