  • Salary increases, more jobs in state

    Kentucky incomes are on the rise, as is the number of many Kentucky jobs, according to a report on Fiscal Year 2017’s fourth-quarter state revenues from the Office of State Budget Director.

  • Parents: Every day counts in your child’s education

    As I write this, about an hour and a half ago I dropped my son off for his first day of fifth grade. Where has the time gone and what happened to summer? It is kind of bittersweet because while I hate to see my son growing up, I do look forward to a daily routine and some sense of normalcy in our house. I also know how important it is that he gets back into the swing of things and grasps the opportunity to learn more and be with his friends.

    Editor,

  • Students visiting the library after school must obey the rules

    School starts next week. Social media will be flooded with first day of school pictures, and parents are split on whether the first day of school is an unofficial holiday they look forward to or a day they dread, maybe as much as their children.

    I think the first day of school creates a little buzz around our community. Things look just a little bit different: more traffic in the morning, fewer bikes riding around town, an empty County Pool, days start getting shorter and evenings begin to fill up with football, soccer, volleyball and homework. The library is no different.

  • ‘Fake news’ more than a media problem

    Bowling Green Daily News

    The term “fake news” actually refers to a very real phenomenon: the proliferation, particularly online, of questionably or inadequately sourced – and, in some cases, outright fabricated – reporting. Such content is intentionally designed to mislead, often imitating the look of legitimate news operations in order to deceive consumers.

  • JCTC celebrates opening of new Carrollton campus

    Along the Ohio River, good news rarely comes in the form of waters rising to the edge of its banks or beyond. But, to tweak a figurative phrase, rising waters do lift all boats. We are celebrating the rising of the waters of knowledge and opportunity that will lift the economic success of our region.

  • Kentucky animal cruelty laws need to be reviewed

    The Winchester Sun

    A recent animal cruelty case in Clark County raises concerns once again about the need for strengthened animal cruelty laws in the Commonwealth.

    According to court records, SOAR representative Tracy Miller said the organization received a complaint in May about a dog, which was swollen and chained to a shed.

    A Facebook post from the rescue describes in detail the living situation of this dog, named Spanky.

  • Don’t treat open meetings law like garbage

    The Courier-Journal

    Lesson 1: No secret meetings.

    Lesson 2: Get better legal advice.

    The new Louisville solid waste board had to cancel its first meeting because it violated the Kentucky Open Meetings law when it failed to publicly announce the meeting in advance as required.

    The cancellation came after the Courier-Journal started asking questions about the meeting of the Louisville/Jefferson County Solid Waste Management District planned for Wednesday evening.
