  • Unlimited fleet set for Lucas Oil Indiana Governor’s Cup

    The 2012 H1 Unlimited Air National Guard Series returns to Kentuckiana with a fleet of 12 Unlimited hydroplanes expected to challenge for the Lucas Oil Indiana Governor’s Cup this weekend.

    This weekend’s event marks the 62nd running of the Governor’s Cup as the feature event of the Madison Regatta. The City of Madison begins its second century of hosting boat races with the 2012 event. Tradition says the first race on the waters separating Milton, Ky., and Madison, Ind., was a non-sanctioned event held in the summer of 1911.

  • Make water your drink of choice this summer

    Summer is here, and with it many opportunities to be involved in activities such as hiking, running, biking and swimming.  It is important during these normally hot and humid months that you drink enough water and stay hydrated.

    In our efforts to beat the summer heat it is easy to grab the first drink available. Often this could be sodas, vitamin water, sports and fruit drinks, smoothies, lemonade and sweetened ice tea. These drinks are high in calories and can lead to calorie over load.

  • July marks start of fiscal year

    July may not be a time normally associated with a rush of legislative activity, but in a key way, no month is busier.

    That’s because it marks the beginning of the state’s fiscal year, and it also is when most of the new laws adopted earlier in the year by the General Assembly take effect.  Unless there is an emergency clause or another specified date, all enacted bills officially go on the books 90 days after the end of a legislative session.  This year, that falls on July 12th.
