  • Soundtracks of life

    Have you noticed how much music is a part of our lives?  We get in the car and turn the radio on, we ride an elevator and the music is playing, we eat out and all the time there is music in the background.  Music is a big part of our lives.

    Somehow music engages our emotions, but it can also engage our minds.  A good song may get us to tap our feet; a great song will touch our hearts and make us think about life.  Some songs bring tears to our eyes, others bring laughter, and some just speak to us in ways we can’t even explain.

  • Tax reform is ahead

    I hope that you and your family are doing well as we prepare to close out the month of July. I have been very busy since the legislature adjourned back on March 30. I have attended many meetings and events in House District 53 as well as our Joint Interim Committee Meetings in the General Assembly. I have received many calls, letters and emails on a variety of issues, but without a doubt the discussion has primarily been on the possibility of a special session being called by Governor Bevin.

  • All of Kentucky is impacted by the farm bill

    The first permanent farm bill was passed in 1938 when farming was much different than it is today. But the purpose of the bill still basically remains the same; to establish and oversee programs that maintain an abundant food supply and help farm families be successful.

  • The Bible is welcomed texbook

    Imagine learning to read without first learning the alphabet. Imagine trying to compute mathematical problems without a basic understanding of numbers. Imagine attempting to build a skyscraper without digging a solid foundation.

    There are basic fundamentals required to fully understand any subject or task, and for that reason, legislation in Kentucky that will now pave the way for the Bible to be taught in school as history and literature, will make for a much more educated and informed citizenry.
