  • Farmers markets have numerous benefits

    Many of us grew up with a family garden and remember the fresh taste of the first tomato of the summer or the crispness of the first ear of corn.  While you may not have the time or space to grow your own fruits and vegetables, you can still get the freshest produce available at your local farmers market. Shopping at the local farmers market has numerous benefits for you, your family, local farmers and the community. 

  • Our work is not complete until a budget is signed into law, Rand says

    This week, the General Assembly returns to the Capitol for a single day to wrap up the 2016 legislative session.

    While this time traditionally has been set aside just to consider whether the House and Senate should override any vetoes a governor might issue, we have begun in recent years to also use this time to vote on other bills that were unresolved before the veto recess. This year, the biggest of those is the state’s two-year budget.
