  • A Bluegrass Bucket List

    My wife I just returned from a trip to Arizona where we took in the splendor of the Grand Canyon, among other interesting sites.
    The Grand Canyon is an awe-inspiring site and is probably one of the few things in this world that actually lives up to its hype.
    There’s a lot of diversity in Arizona, from the deserts in the south, to the more appealing (at least to me) northern portion that includes the red rocks of Sedona and the ponderosa pine forests of the canyon area.

  • Who won? Not your average Joe

    Somewhere in Kentucky, there’s a man named Joe struggling to feed his family. He’s been raised to believe in hard work and self-sufficiency, so he works overtime to make ends meet and avoids having to rely on government assistance. Sure, it makes life hard, but it does him proud to be able to look his family in the eye, and himself in the mirror.
    Unfortunately, Kentucky just made it harder on Joe.

  • Putting our pensions on a stronger path

    Legislation to put Kentucky’s pension systems on a stronger trajectory passed the General Assembly last week. This measure puts the retirement of our teachers, law enforcement, and state workers on sounder footing, and is based heavily off of the input and concerns of these valued public servants. With an unfunded liability for our pension systems of at least $40 billion, it was imperative that action be taken this year.

  • Less debating, more discussing

    Newspapers, even ones in small towns like Taylorsville, are part of the world of mass communication. Mass communication basically refers to a system in which information is distributed to the masses, whether it’s by print, airwaves, or more recently, over the internet.
    Mass communications can be effective in getting the word out about news and events, but it can also lead to mass confusion, mass misunderstandings and mass manipulation.
