    An estimated one million people in the U.S. live with Parkinson’s disease (PD), the second-most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer’s and the 14th-leading cause of death in our country. As of 2017, over 12,000 Kentuckians had been diagnosed with PD. Symptoms vary, but can include tremors, difficulty with balance, swallowing, chewing and speaking; and cognitive impairment.

  • Viewpoint

    Starting with the Governor’s Office, and working on down to the General Assembly, it appears the Republican Party is making it easy for the Democrats to retake control of state government in the not-to-distant future.
    Governor Bevin has a terminal case of ‘hoof and mouth’, or is that ‘foot in mouth,’ disease.
    It seems he cannot help himself from alienating all state employees, particularly teachers.

  • Candidate endorsements for the May 22 primary

    As the 2018 election draws near candidates will begin lining up their followers to write endorsement letters to the newspaper.
