  • Massie urges Congress not to pass bill similar to last year’s Innovation Act

    At the recent Northern Kentucky Regional First LEGO League Robotics tournament, I marveled at the imagination and creativity displayed by so many young people.  In these students, I see the spirit of ingenuity and a culture of invention that have been critical to our nation’s economic success for over two centuries. I was reminded of the competitions I participated in as a young inventor, and of the American spirit of innovation that inspired me to obtain 29 patents.

  • Senate, House work to find some common ground on heroin legislation

    As we approach the final days of the 2015 Legislative Session, we have been working diligently to complete our consideration of Senate bills while also vetting legislation that has been passed by the House. We will begin considering several additional House bills next week and, on Monday, the Senate plans to pass the first bill to receive the approval of both legislative chambers.

  • Absence of choices in politics denies citizens a better quality of life

    What if.

    There is nothing quite as important as spending a few moments of our personal time asking the very basic question, “What if?”

  • House Bill 4 a far reach to pass, but would benefit teachers’ retirement

    While each legislative session is different, many of the bills the General Assembly considers every year tend to be grouped in just a handful of categories: education, health, public protection, economic development and streamlining government services.

    All of them came into play last week as the House worked through the remainder of our high-profile bills and many others that are also now ready for the Senate’s consideration.

  • The almighty rep: Where do you start?

    In all my years as a fitness professional I have lost track of how many times I’ve been approached with the following question: How many reps should I do?

    When referring to reps, we are talking about repetitions. For example, if you were performing a simple barbell bench press with 100 pounds and you perform the movement 10 times, that would be 10 repetitions. The method I have used to answer this question that I so often get is by first asking another question: What is it that you wish to accomplish?

  • Thanks to Hospice Bluegrass staff

    Editor:

    To our friends in Carroll County,

    Snow, ice, freezing rain and subzero temperatures were a challenge to much of Kentucky last week. I was touched by the response from Hospice of the Bluegrass staff and our community as so many went to great lengths to ensure homebound hospice patients continued to receive medical and nursing care despite the severe weather.
