    My husband and I made our first visit to the town of Carrollton on Sunday, Jan. 9. We drove around enjoying this quiet old town, nice riverfront park, and the quirky driftwood home that caught my eye.

    The State Journal

    One bill that hadn’t seen the light of day until now would make legislators’ public pensions public record — and support seems decidedly bipartisan so far. Senate Bill 3, filed yet again by Sen. Chris McDaniel, R-Latonia, passed unanimously out of committee on its way to the full Senate.
