  • Have you ever been out walking or driving in the early morning and really seen the dawn break? I mean, that moment when the sun really first peeks over the horizon in a blaze of glory. The sky has been growing lighter for a while, shot with pinks and golds, but suddenly the morning twilight is banished. The true light has risen into the sky.

    When Spencer County Elementary School students aren’t sure how to spell a word, they just ask Charley Miller. The fifth-grader has an exceptional knack for spelling.

    He placed fifth out of 61 competitors March 5 in the Kentucky Derby Festival Spelling Bee. He went on from there to finish 10th in a Scripps National Spelling Bee regional competition last Sunday.

  • Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles said on Friday he supports state legislation to develop a plan for ensuring that Kentucky has a steady, plentiful supply of water for agricultural uses.

  • One in six Kentuckians is food insecure, which means they lack consistent access to enough nutritious food for an active, healthy life. For Kentucky children, it’s even worse – one in four. The people described in these statistics are our relatives, friends, and neighbors – people we see at work, at the ballgame, at church.
