  • Scouting For Food returns Nov. 11, 18


    It’s time for the 2017 Scouting for Food campaign to get underway. Local Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts and a host of others representing various groups will be hitting the streets this Saturday (Nov. 11) to distribute approximately 1,800 fliers to the homes in Carrollton in anticipation of food collection the following Saturday (Nov. 18).

    We will be meeting at 9 a.m. at the Food Pantry, 517 Seventh Street (corner of Seventh and Polk, commonly referred to as “old Kentucky Ladder building”).

  • Veterans Day began after World War I

    On Saturday, our nation will pause to pay tribute to those men and women who, for more than two centuries now, have given their time, talents and, if necessary, life and limb to protect us and countless others around the world.

  • Don’t ruin progress by slipping up on the weekend

    This is a subject I want to talk about TODAY because it’ll still be very fresh in your mind. The weekends are generally where most people ruin their progress because they fall out of routine.

    Misconception #1. Stopping the project

  • Forecast projects state’s General Fund short by $150 million

    They may be unknown to the general public, and their subject matter may be a little dry, but the seven economists who comprise the Consensus Forecasting Group have a powerful role to play: They determine just how much money state government can expect.

  • “Keeping the Promise” pension plan released

    “Keeping the Promise,” our plan to save Kentucky’s pension systems, keeps the promise made to Kentucky’s current employees while also meeting the legal and moral obligations we owe to those who have already retired. Promises made are promises kept.

    Make no mistake: there will be no changes, clawbacks or reductions to the paychecks of current retirees, and there will be protections for healthcare benefits. That is a promise you can literally take to the bank.

  • Vietnam veterans enjoy reunion
