  • Senate reconvenes after Martin Luther King Jr. Day

    After a pause in legislative work last Monday to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Senate reconvened Tuesday in a joint session with the House to hear the governor’s budget proposal.
    Determining the state’s two-year budget is the most daunting, time-consuming task we undertake in the legislature.  
    As you can imagine, getting a majority of 138 lawmakers -- who represent varied ideologies and communities across the state -- to agree on any bill is hard.  It was never meant to be effortless.

  • The Super Bowl, pleasant memories

    The Super Bowl has always been a day of parties and good times for me and I am looking forward to another day of the same on Sunday.
    I cannot remember each one year by year, but I do remember some important facts about the Super Bowls that have been played during my life time.
    To begin with, the first Super Bowl was played the year that I graduated from Tell City High School. The 1967 battle between the Packers and Chiefs was played in the Los Angeles Coliseum and was easily won by the Packers 35-10.

  • Brossart’s Mustangs edge Thorobreds

    A game that was in reach at the three minute mark got away from the Thorobreds Friday night as they dropped a hard-fought game to the 19-1 Bishop Brossart Mustangs, 60-49, in Alexandria.
    The loss stopped the Breds four-game winning streak and left them with a 9-10 record for the season.  
    The evening started well for Harrison County as the freshman team won their game by a 15-point margin, 48-33. Brossart took the junior varsity, 40-32, in a game that was close throughout. The schools were even for the night heading into the varsity tussle.

    LVC to organize co-ed
    basketball team

    Right here in the middle of the coldest winter in a long, long time, the college on the hill has put together a co-ed basketball opportunity for both the men and women students. The teams, called the Hilltop Blues, One and Two,  will play a intramural schedule at the city hall gym in Cynthiana.

  • Okay winter, you can go now...

    I decided this week that my heavy coat -- the one I rarely wear, because, well... because let’s say I seldom get cold -- needs to be laundered.
    However, with this winter’s weather, I dare not give it a good soaking for fear that I may need it before the heavy fluff has time to dry.
    I’ve never been a big fan of cold weather. I could use stronger words, such as hate and detest, or loathe and abhor, but you already get my “drift.”

  • Make-a-Blanket Day planned for Feb. 15

    Over five years, one group of Central Kentucky quilters has helped more than 3,000 children and families heal with a simple hand-made gift.
    The North Central Kentucky Chapter of Project Linus was founded in 2009 by Georgetown resident Janet Walter. The chapter includes “blanketeers” from Scott, Harrison, Pendleton, Nicholas, Bourbon and Robertson counties and, as of mid-January, has provided 3,159 blankets, quilts and afghans to children dealing with illnesses and traumatic life events.
