  • Kentucky educational system improves in multiple categories, according to Prichard

    As students near the end of the semester, they are invariably starting to think about the grades that will determine whether their Christmas break is actually a joyous one.

    For Kentucky’s educational system, our “report cards,” so to speak, have already arrived.  They came earlier this fall from the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence, a non-profit organization that has been a driving force behind education reform since the 1980s, and the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE).

    That hasn’t been the case as three members of Carrollton City Council volunteered at the mayor’s request to work on revising the Enterprise Incentive Program.

  • Ky. has contributed to Thanksgiving

    While the Fourth of July is understandably the most American holiday, Thanksgiving can at least lay claim to being the first.

    Its origin, as even our youngest students can tell us, began long before our independence, and we’re now just six years away from the 400th anniversary of when the Pilgrims and Native Americans held a three-day feast.

  • Scouting for Food proves successful
