  • Don’t wait until it’s too late to gather info on family

    By the time I was born way back in 1962, both of my dad’s parents had already passed away. My grandmother, Lovina Amanda (Hackett) Codling, died in 1938 in her mid-50s. My grandfather, Charles Cicero Codling, died in 1952 in his mid-70s.

    My mother’s mother, Ola Ethel (Reed) Wherry, died days after my first birthday. We were living in a suburb of Washington, D.C., at that time. I really have no idea if she was ever well enough to travel down to see me or if our family went up to see them after I was born.

  • County attorney assists with guardian petitions to help local families

    The last thing anyone wants to think about is not being able to take care of oneself or having to depend on loved ones. Worse, yet, is having to be a loved one and not being able to take care of them.

    Even though these are not pleasant things to think about, they are things that every responsible adult should consider. Nobody plans on having a stroke, being in an automobile accident or developing Alzheimers or dementia. Sometimes life’s catastrophes cannot be avoided, but oftentimes, they can be planned for.

  • Lawmakers get to work key issues

    Under the rules that govern odd-year legislative sessions, much of the General Assembly’s work doesn’t begin until February and it ends about a week before the start of March Madness. With four days set aside in January for organizational matters and one or two days in late March used to consider any vetoes, that leaves about 25 days to cover what is often a long agenda.

    With that in mind, the Kentucky House of Representatives wasted no time in moving its major priorities forward when my legislative colleagues and I returned to the Capitol on Tuesday, Feb. 5.
