  • Quasi-government pension solution not the answer

    When the General Assembly returned to the Capitol on Thursday to complete this year’s legislative session, one unresolved issue towered over the rest. Regrettably, the solution now set to become law is not the one we need, and the very way it was approved – late at night, before the bill could even be read – was a near-repeat of last year’s controversial and ultimately unconstitutional public-pension bill.

  • Kentucky on the front line of opioid, addiction response

    Coordinated efforts at the federal, state and local levels are making considerable progress in the fight against opioid and substance abuse.

     My niece, Jennifer, has three daughters, Leah, Emma and Lily.

    Last year I bought them a book, “Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing,” by Sally Lloyd-Jones. It’s a children’s devotional book that simplifies Bible stories and concepts — I highly recommend it for all my adult friends.

    Theology sometimes makes grown up people a bit crazy because we tend to take the simple and straightforward and make it ridiculous and complicated.

  • Childhood life experiences determine health issues

    Research shows that the adversity we experience as children can affect us into adulthood. Challenges children face in school, life – and ultimately with their health – are often the symptoms of Adverse Childhood Experiences and toxic stress.

    The good news is, the earlier we can identify that a child is experiencing ACEs and toxic stress, the sooner children and families can be connected to the services they need to prevent or heal the effects.
