  • Scammers preying on those helping others

    Why should I be receiving press releases with headings like “Seniors informed on how to avoid fraud,” and “KU customers warned about bill-payment scam?”
    Now, with the recent storm tragedies in Oklahoma, there will be new scams popping up all over.
    I can remember my grandmother shaking her head as the news flicked across her old black and white television in the 70s exclaiming “What is this world coming to?”
    Today, I’m asking that same question and scratching  my head with no answer in sight.

  • Medicaid expansion could change Kentucky’s course, big time

    By Al Cross,
    Kentucky Health News
     “Today we change the course of Kentucky’s history.”
    It is not often that a public official can say such a thing with a large measure of credibility, but Gov. Steve Beshear legitimately raised that hope last Thursday, as he announced that he would expand Kentucky’s Medicaid program under federal health reform.

  • Look for warning signs and think before you act

    It saddens me to know that there has yet again been a young life taken from the world at such an early age.
    A young HCHS student allgedly took his own life over the weekend, leaving behind a host of family and friends to grieve his death.
    While everyone wants to know the answers to why, how and when, all that I care about are that measures are still not taken to prevent things like this from happening.
    Now I am not so naive to think that there is a magical switch that can be turned off to disable people from ever harming themselves.

  • Seeing police from diffrent perspective

    For the last several weeks I have been participating in the Kentucky State Police’s Citizens Police Academy.
    I have regular dealings with the Kentucky State Police and law enforcement in general. I have gone on ride-alongs with troopers over the years and have felt just a smattering of the adrenaline of a high-speed chase... er pulling over a speeder, but there were blue lights and sirens.
    Well, you get the picture.
    However, the CPA has been a complete eye opener.
