  • CCRTA to donate to the food pantry


    The week of Oct. 18-24, 2015 has been designated as Retired Teachers Week. The purpose of the week is to recognize the volunteer work that retired teachers do in the community.

    In 2014 an hour donated was worth $20.29. Statewide last year the Kentucky Retired Teachers Association members donated more than 981,168 hours, valued at $19.9 million. Just think how much it would be if every volunteer reported their hours.

    We would like to thank everyone for their moral support to us and financial donations to the American Cancer Society for last Sunday’s Chicago Marathon. Thanks to the generosity of friends, family and community members, we raised $2,107 for ACS, which exceeded our fundraising goal of $2,000.

  • ‘Three for ME’ will give all CCS students a library card

    As I open almost all packages I receive in the mail, I can’t tell you how many times I thought, “Man, I wish I had thought of bagged air to protect packages.” It is a simple, genius, practical idea that solved a problem effectively.

  • Law enforcement deserves our support all the time

     The News-Enterprise

    There are times in our lives that we won’t ever forget. Often, those moments are from national tragedies. But lately, tragedy has hit home and cut deep.

    Two state troopers, both from Rineyville, both graduates of Hardin County Schools, both gone way too young — one in the line of duty and one in a head-on crash as he drove to pick up family to attend the funeral of his grandmother.

  • Aerospace, aviation top Kentucky export with nearly $8 billion last year

    Most Kentuckians know that the commonwealth plays a major role in the auto industry – in fact, only two states produce more cars and trucks than we do – but far fewer are likely aware that our work in aerospace and aviation has overtaken it.

  • Gilbert supports Spann for Ag Commissioner


    The office of Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture oversees the safety of much of the food we eat to the marketing of the Commonwealth’s signature brand, Kentucky Proud. If a product is grown or raised in Kentucky, it is likely a part of the Department of Agriculture.  This includes our state’s aquaculture, livestock, equine program, fruits, vegetables and grains to name a few.
