  • Jars in stores raise funds for Kosair Children’s Hospital

    Editor:

    In April 2011, I noticed an odd looking rash all over my three-year-old son Wyatt’s body. He also had a lot of bruising. So, the next morning, his father and I took him to the doctor. The doctor knew that something was wrong right away, so she took some blood from him. The results came back that he had a platelets count of 1,000 (A normal count is anywhere from 150,000 to 400,000).

  • Show support for the clean energy bill

    Editor:

    The Clean Energy Opportunity Act (HB167) is currently being considered by the Kentucky House of Representatives during the General Assembly. This bill encourages greater energy efficiency, conservation and use of all energy resources in order to gain energy independence and encourage economic growth. It also will enable Kentucky to be a leader in renewable energy alternatives to stabilize energy costs and create jobs for our commonwealth.
