  • FRANKFORT FOCUS with State Representative Tom McKee

     
    As the General Assembly wrapped up work on Friday, the next-to-last day of this year’s legislative session, the focus understandably turned to April 12, when legislators will return after a brief veto recess.
    Traditionally, the session’s last day is set aside just to consider whether to enact any bills or resolutions that the governor may have rejected.  This year, however, the House and Senate will also use that time to hopefully adopt a two-year budget to run state government.

  • Matt Bevin...the good and the bad

    It’s way too early to pass judgment on Kentucky’s new governor, Matt Bevin, as he’s barely three months into his first term.
    His hokey, ill-conceived and condescending social posting  several weeks ago, left a bad taste in most people’s mouths, Democrat and Republican, alike.

  • 8 Your Fine; 9 Your Mine!

    I have been driving for many years and for the longest time the premise was you could speed to a certain point before you would be pulled over. Hence, 8-over your fine; 9-over your mine (ticketed).
    It’s worked pretty well during those years I lived by it, but do not espouse it today.
    WARNING: DO NOT test this with law enforcement.

  • Prayers answered: Pay here

    How much would you pay to have your prayers answered?
