  • New laws to benefit Kentuckians

    Each legislative session, the public understandably focuses most of its attention on the biggest issues facing the General Assembly, which this year range from addressing a heroin epidemic to modernizing rules for the telecommunications industry.

  • Cheese, bacon, sausage, eggs staples for Keeton

    Wow, where did the winter go? It seems like just yesterday snow was everywhere, and we were all sick of winter coats! Now it’s in the 60’s and 70’s and our world is greening up right before our eyes. That being said, it’s supposed to be in the 40’s for the highs in the next few days so maybe I’m jumping the gun a tad bit. I do know that the sun is shining, and the birds are singing and, frankly, that’s enough for me.

  • Get fit with friends: Discover the benefits of group exercise

    Group exercise is beneficial in many ways. Working out in a group provides support, accountability and structure. We, as typical humans, tend to not want to let a friend or a group of people we associate with down by not showing up or performing to the best of our ability. I personally feel that you are more likely to complete a well-rounded exercise routine and want to perform a potentially more difficult workout. Working out in a group can be just plain fun as well.

  • Health bills among those passed by Senate

    The 2015 Legislative Session of the Kentucky General Assembly adjourned near midnight on Wednesday, March 11, signaling the close of a complex and issue-laden short session. Thursday marked the beginning of the governor’s 10-day veto period during which he will review the bills passed by both House and Senate for his approval or veto.

  • Heroin bill is the top unresolved issue

    When it comes to illegal drug use, few states have been hit as hard as Kentucky over the last 15 years.   We have lost thousands of loved ones during that time to a rising tide of meth, synthetic drugs, prescription drug abuse and heroin, and tens of thousands more have seen their lives ruined.

    The General Assembly has responded by passing a series of laws, many of them hailed as national models, that have had real, lasting success against these epidemics.

  • Legion says farewell to McMurrys

    Editor:

    This past Saturday, March 14, marked a sad day for the Sons of the American Legion Squad 41 of Carrollton. We, as well as, the American Legion family gathered to say good bye to two long time members. Gene and Sue “Mama Sue” McMurry, both have retired.

    For the sons group, Mama Sue was the point of contact as her smiling face was the one you saw and she told you what you needed to know to become a member of any of these groups.
