  • Residents want mess at Hwy. 227 cleaned up

    It is disgusting that the residents of Carroll County must endure driving by properties that distort the definition of pride into ugly visions of shame. It even causes most residents to hang their head in shame when they realize that the first, and often lasting, impression of visitors to our county can be seen as they drive down the exit ramp off I-71.

  • Leave the scale, take the progress

    Many of us measure progress in our fitness transformations with a scale, but if those numbers induce stress instead of motivation, then it’s time to ditch the scale and find a better way!

The roster of seven girls eventually grew to 10, and Coach Brandon Hicks has been there from the first dribble. Coach Hick’s, or just “Brandon,” as the girls like to call him has managed to coach not only his daughter’s CCJP basketball team for six years but simultaneously his son’s basketball team as well.

  • General Assembly must protect state retirees’ pensions

    One of the most important responsibilities of the State Treasurer is to be a watchdog for money earned by Kentuckians. That includes protecting Kentucky retirees’ pensions.

    I was proud to support Senate Bill 3 that passed the General Assembly and was signed into law by Governor Bevin earlier this year. That bill shines a light on legislator pensions by allowing the people of Kentucky to see how their tax dollars are being paid to retired legislators. This is critical information; Kentucky has one of the worst overall pension liabilities in the country.

  • Small businesses represent more than 96 percent of Kentucky businesses

    FRANKFORT – Did you know that two-thirds of new jobs in the U.S. each year are created by small businesses, with over half of Americans either owning or working for one of these small (but mighty) companies? It’s true, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration, which helps small businesses be competitive both here in the U.S. and across the globe.
