    The year may be about over, but from an economic standpoint, it won’t soon be forgotten.

  • Enjoy the holidays, but don’t let them ruin your progress

    As much as your training requires you being honest with yourself in the gym, something else you must be honest about is food intake! Are you sure you know exactly what you’re eating, every day?

    Many people make the fatal error of grossly misjudging what they’re actually consuming. With Christmas around the corner, there’s no better time to talk about the reality of food intake. 

  • Report shows challenges facing law enforcement

    To get a better understanding of what our law enforcement officers do every day, all one has to do is flip through two comprehensive reports that the Kentucky State Police compile annually on serious crimes and traffic accidents.

    By now most people are making that list and checking it twice, channeling their inner Santa Claus.

    Many people can tell you exactly how many shopping days remain until Christmas. Others, like myself, have lots of people to buy for still.

    Hopefully everyone will try to match up that shopping list with local stores that can meet those needs.

    Shopping local is critical to our community as small businesses are the lifeblood that truly keep us strong.

  • Champions’ focus is on prevention, education

    Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County is a prevention/education coalition in Carroll County, KY.

    This week, as we gather with family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving, it is worth noting that we’re just four years away from the 400th anniversary of the original famous feast enjoyed by the Pilgrims and the Native Americans who helped them weather especially tough times.

  • Hornback: Thanks to veterans for serving

    The leaves fell and the weather grew cooler as we transitioned into this blustery November. As Thanksgiving quickly approaches, the Legislature continues to hold Interim Joint Committee meetings throughout the Commonwealth and in Frankfort.

  • Put a stop to harassment

    The News-Enterprise

    From Hollywood to corporate America and from media figures to elected officials, the recent list of accused sexual offenders made public includes the names of some of the most powerful people in the country. Were it not for the abhorrent nature of why their names appear, the list could otherwise be considered a virtual “Who’s Who” of movers and shakers within their industries.

  • State has big job with maintaining facilities

    One of state government’s biggest responsibilities is constructing and managing the very buildings that house our employees, college students, prisoners and state park visitors.  It is no small job, considering that we maintain 88 million square feet of space valued at $18 billion.

  • Jeff Hoover, other legislators have turned state Capitol into sleazy pickup joint

    By JOSEPH GERTH

    Don’t kid yourself into believing that all the motives were pure among those calling this weekend for resignations from former House Speaker Jeff Hoover and others involved in the escalating Kentucky legislative sexual harassment scandal.

    And don’t trick yourself into thinking that the tough stands taken by the governor and some members of the General Assembly will lead to any real change in a good ol’ boy legislature that has celebrated such shenanigans for decades.
