    Editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for attending the Carroll County Animal Support Inc. chili supper fundraiser held at the American Legion Hall  March 5. It was a well attended event. We had some good chili and desserts. We also had some very nice baskets for our silent auction.

  • Corrections bill passes; state Medicaid fix fails as session wraps up

    The 2011 General Assembly Session wrapped up March 9 with both a success story and a disappointment. 

    The Senate passed House Bill 463, a landmark bill that was the result of a long, thoughtful, and bipartisan study of the spiraling costs of corrections. This is the first serious revision to our penal code in more than 30 years.

    The nationally recognized Pew Center brought both local and state authorities together to recommend several provisions to improve public safety while lowering correctional costs and the state crime rate.

    Know where you can take shelter in a matter of seconds and practice a family tornado drill at least once a year. Have a pre-determined place to meet after a disaster.

  • Special legislative session to tackle shortfall in Medicaid

    When the General Assembly began the 2011 Regular Session in January, there was only one thing that had to be done: Plug a sizeable deficit in Medicaid.
    Work on doing just that began in November, when Gov. Steve Beshear offered a plan that would keep the solution within that healthcare program.
    In essence, it calls for using money set aside for next year to cover the short-term problem, then implementing a wide array of cost-saving managed-care programs across the state similar to those that have long been used for Medicaid recipients in the Louisville area.
