  • Veterans Day began after World War I

    On Saturday, our nation will pause to pay tribute to those men and women who, for more than two centuries now, have given their time, talents and, if necessary, life and limb to protect us and countless others around the world.

  • Don’t ruin progress by slipping up on the weekend

    This is a subject I want to talk about TODAY because it’ll still be very fresh in your mind. The weekends are generally where most people ruin their progress because they fall out of routine. In the week if you have fixed working hours it is much easier to follow a disciplined schedule where getting up, preparing your meals, eating them, doing your cardio and training all fall into place. On the weekends where your schedule isn’t set it can be all too easy to fall behind.

    Here are some common weekend mistakes people make...

    In the interest of openness and transparency, the Kentucky Communications Network Authority (KCNA) would like to address some statements about KentuckyWired that have appeared in the public forum lately. KCNA would like Kentucky’s citizens to be properly informed.

  • Forecast projects state’s General Fund short by $150 million

    They may be unknown to the general public, and their subject matter may be a little dry, but the seven economists who comprise the Consensus Forecasting Group have a powerful role to play: They determine just how much money state government can expect.

  • “Keeping the Promise” pension plan released

    “Keeping the Promise,” our plan to save Kentucky’s pension systems, keeps the promise made to Kentucky’s current employees while also meeting the legal and moral obligations we owe to those who have already retired. Promises made are promises kept.

  • ‘Freedom from smoking’ classes now in session at Three Rivers

  • Pension framework lacks critical details, Rand says

    For most of the year, Gov. Matt Bevin has promised he would call a special legislative session to focus on making major changes to the retirement systems of our school employees and those who work for state and local governments.  We still have no specific date, but he and Republican leaders of the General Assembly did offer a framework last week of what they would like to see become law.

  • Hornback writes about governor’s proposed pension plan

    An ailing pension system threatening our state’s financial stability is the number one issue facing our great Commonwealth. As your State Senator, I have vowed to keep the pension promise to our teachers and public servants, and I am certain that the pension reform plan proposed by Gov. Bevin and the Kentucky General Assembly will do just that.

  • Keeton offers three chili recipes to try this fall

    Hello once again, my friends. It’s crazy to think that we are already back to talking about cool/cold weather foods and all the wonderful comfort they bring. But time stands still for no man, they say, and the fact is, it’s time to curl up with some tasty, hearty food and embrace the season.
