  • Look for simple recipes this spring

    Hello once again, my friends. Here we find ourselves on another glorious day, with spring right around the corner. With the coming of better weather we all start thinking about shaking off the winter doldrums and getting outside. Visions of working in the flower garden begin dancing in our heads. Mowing grass, gardening and more are now within reach. Of course, for those with children it’s also the coming of sports seasons. Baseball and softball are right around the corner, along with soccer and other outdoor ventures. All of this teams up to make meal planning more difficult.

In the Carroll County School District, for example, 16 buses transport around 1,000 students to and from school each day.

  • House-version of budget restores about $300 million of Bevin’s education cuts

    In one sense, Kentucky’s budget doesn’t change much from year to year.  A little more than half of every state dollar, for example, goes to our schools, colleges and universities.  Another fourth is dedicated to Medicaid and other health services, a little more than a tenth is spent on criminal justice and the final dime goes to everything else.

    While there is relatively little discussion in the General Assembly about those ratios, there is often lively debate on the best way to move each major area forward.
