  • ‘I know God was with me in Afghanistan’

    YES! I believe God is very real. How do I know you might ask? Well before 2008 I had faith but did not know for sure. Then I was sent to fight in Afghanistan. I was assigned as a squad leader on a Route Clearance Platoon or an RCP as we calIED it in the Army. Our job was to go out and drive the roads and find IED’s. These are bombs, Improvised Explosive Devices. We would say we would rather an IED hit us than to hit one of our infantry troops whose vehicles were not as armored as ours. Little did I know how dangerous or stressful that job would actually be.

  • A Legislative Perspective from the Kentucky General Assembly

    After concluding a truly historic first week, the new majority in Frankfort is already looking ahead to the remaining 25 days of the 2017 legislative session.
    It was invigorating to finally get the opportunity to take action on behalf of the people of Harrison, Pendleton and Scott counties.
    Before I arrived in the General Assembly, I pledged to my constituents to do everything in my power to promote job growth, increase financial opportunities for the middle class and to protect the most defenseless among us.

  • Viewpoint

    Who could turn away $28,000. Free and clear. It’s yours.
    The catch: You have to become a home owner.
    How terrible is that?
    A brand new home. You pick the carpet, the floor plan, the doors, the counter tops and the bathroom fixtures. It will have never been lived in by another family. It will be yours.
    You won’t have to deal with paying rent on something that will never be yours. And, in many cases the house payment you will make will be less than the rent you have been paying.

  • Don’t forget what’s in the root cellar

    Perhaps this can be a reminder of the payoff of “putting up” the garden in spring, summer and fall: We have extended our homegrown eating pleasure into the winter months with some basic preservation methods.  
    If you froze, dried, canned or otherwise preserved fresh fruits and vegetables in 2016, do not forget about them (or horde them for some unreasonable time.)
    First, open the freezer and assess what’s there: blanched Romano beans with some ice crystals forming inside the freezer bag?  Plan a stew for dinner.
