    FRANKFORT, Ky. – Kentucky House Republicans vowed Tuesday to cut taxes and fight the expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare if they win a majority in the chamber in this November’s elections.

    Other priorities of the House GOP — blocked by the Democratic majority during recent sessions — will be passage of a so-called ‘Right to work’ bill and the establishment of panels of healthcare experts to review medical malpractice allegations before they go to court.

  • Lady Panthers drop match to Lady Titans

    The Collins Lady Titans jumped out early on the Lady Panthers in both games, winning the match Aug. 27, 25-13, 25-19.

    “Tonight, my team lacked drive. Our covering was not where it needed to be because they had a really good outside hitter, [senior Michaela Staudemire,]” head coach Lynn Eaglin said. “I believe she got six kills per game on us, and we just weren’t in our spots.”

    Collins took off in game one with a 6-0 lead, and the Lady Panthers were not able to catch up.
