  • Legislators listen to citizens from all over the state on important issues

    Democracy in action is often a crowded affair, as the waiting rooms and hallways of the Capitol and Capitol Annex overflowed this week with large groups of Kentuckians traveling to Frankfort to make their voices heard on key issues important to their cause.

  • Keeton shares tips for cooking gluten-free food

    Hello once again, my friends. As I sit here looking out the window at the shining sun I can only think of how soon great weather will be here. It is rapidly approaching for sure.

  • Little of this, little of that — Blended Learning

    There is no doubt that the pace of change in education and technology is accelerating. Humans used animal-drawn ploughs for thousands of years before the tractor, but only fifty years have passed from the time of mainframe computers to “Liking” a picture on Facebook.

    Think of YouTube (founded in 2005). Facebook (founded in 2004) and Twitter (founded in 2006).
