  • Life is based on seedtime, just as it is with gardens

    As we see the snow going away from our landscapes, we are reminded that spring is coming. 

    After one of the coldest and greatest number of snowfalls we’ve seen in years, we are encouraged that spring is around the corner.

  • Bills on CPR, mug shots win OK

    As we near the end of February, the General Assembly has a predictably full agenda heading into what is always its busiest month of the year.

Steve Beshear’s proposal. A vote by the full chamber will be held by early March.

  • Bills restore voting rights, protect those who are vulnerable

    We have passed the midpoint of the General Assembly, and the activity has continued to be energetic and fast-paced. I welcomed guests from my district and enjoyed seeing the constituents. It was also nice to see some decent weather come our way in the Capitol city.

    The Senate took up historic legislation this week in House Bill 70, which would restore voting rights certain to felons after five years removed from their sentence.
