  • House OKs adult, child protections

    Most legislation that the General Assembly passes each year falls in one of two categories: It either protects or it promotes.

    That was especially evident this past week in the Kentucky House of Represen-tatives, which voted for bills that range from further limiting abuse of our youngest and oldest citizens to helping more students in the coalfields of Eastern Kentucky get their four-year college degree.

  • Senate bill would protect religous freedoms, rights

    We are entering the home-stretch of the 2012 General Assembly with the attendant rush of bills as legislators feel the urgency of the dwindling days. The Senate had a very full week with legislation, committee meetings, and we received the budget proposal from the House as well as the state’s road plan. Visits from groups ranging from the AARP to 4-H also came to the capitol to see their legislator and press for their causes.

    Bandwidth – or, rather, the lack of it – is the root of what’s ailing the free wireless internet wifi system being provided by the City of Campbellsburg.

    That was the diagnosis given Monday to City Council by Brent Graves of PoweredOn in Carrollton, who was hired more than a year ago to set up the system meant to provide city residents with free wireless internet access.

  • Tennis teams fall to Anderson

    The Carroll County High School girls and boys tennis teams battled Anderson County Monday in their first matches of the season. Head coach Juan Fernandez said, overall, he felt his teams played well, but were outmatched by two stronger Anderson clubs. The girls lost 1-4 while the boys lost 0-5.

    In the girls match, Fernandez said it was a little closer game than the score reflects. He said Anderson’s team is experienced and mature, while Carroll has one of the youngest rosters in the region.
