  • These men, women are always on duty

    Column as I see ’em …

    Mowing, weeding flower beds and sanding a new wooden vegetable bin for my daughter were all put on hold several times over the my Fourth of July weekend, as was just trying to take some time off.

    Each time I’d make a few laps around the yard on the Cub Cadet or load a fresh piece of sandpaper, duty — newspaper duty, that is — would call.

    One was to the river, where an elderly man’s Ranger boat lost when it tangled with a large tree jutting up from the murky water.

  • Treat plants like pregnant mothers

    I think we all know that I don’t exactly act my age. You may see me riding a grocery cart across the parking lot or crawling in the grass with a 2-year-old.

    I’m enjoying the moment with all I’ve got. That said, last Friday night I was like a kid waiting for Santa. Except that I was waiting to see everyone at the stand on Saturday.

  • Smarter approach needed for criminal justice

    By Gov. Matt Bevin

    and Justice and Public Safety Cabinet Sec. John Tilley

    We’ve reached a critical point in Kentucky — one where our prisons and jails are full, overdose deaths continue to rise and far too many children have parents who are imprisoned.

    We can no longer afford to cling to the outdated idea that prison is the only way to effectively hold people accountable for their crimes. Instead, we need to take a smarter, more measured approach to criminal justice.
