  • Lawmakers kick off 2011 session

    At the start of January, there are two things that can always be counted on: It will take at least two weeks to write the new year correctly on such things as checks, and the General Assembly will return to the Capitol to begin a new legislative session.


    That got underway this past week, when I and the other just-elected members of the General Assembly were sworn in and the House and Senate leaders were formally chosen. In the House, the remainder of the week was spent establishing membership of the legislative committees and their chairmen for the next two years.

  • Senate acts on bills during opening week of session

    Usually, the first week is an organizational week during which the different parties elect their leadership. This year was different. When we announced the Senate Majority legislative agenda in December, we committed to move aggressively on passing legislation regarding job creation, education and transparent and responsive government. With the passage of these bills, the “Agenda for Prosperity,” very few can say we didn’t deliver on that promise this first week.

    Residents return asking about erosion problem
    Carrollton residents living along the Ohio River on Main Street returned to check on city council’s progress in addressing the erosion issue along the river bank. Byron Rodgers, who lives at 710 Main Street, and Jimmy Supplee, who lives at 805 Main Street, asked council and City Attorney Nick Marsh if they received a response about the issue from the Army Corps of Engineers. They also questioned how the problem would be impacted by the construction of the riverwalk project.

  • Panthers’ ‘best game’ falls short, 56-53, against Collegiate

    The Carroll County Panthers enjoyed a six-point advantage in the waning seconds of the third quarter Monday in what head coach Carroll Yager called “the best game we’ve played.” But miscues over the final eight minutes of play allowed Louisville Collegiate to escape with a 56-53 victory when a three-point Ethan Stewart field goal attempt rimmed out at the final buzzer.


    “I was pleased with our guys,” Yager said. “We’ve made tremendous improvement.”
