  • Poor turnout tells politicians we don’t care

    I don’t think very many of us saw this one coming.

    Privately, I had told a very few close friends that I thought Matt Bevin was going to be the next governor of Kentucky, but that we might not know until the early hours of Nov. 4, the day after we had the opportunity to go to the polls.

    Another election has come and gone.

    Even though we experienced a larger voter turnout than originally thought, we had very few issues. As usual, the Attorney General’s Office visited several of the voting locations looking for voter fraud and election officer compliance. To our knowledge, no fraud was found.

    I want to thank several for helping make Election Day go so well. I will start with my staff.

  • Make a list or have a hug: De-stress for holidays

    Well, it’s that time of year again. We’re just days away from everything, and lists are appearing everywhere.

    A list for the grocery, a list for getting things out of closets and cupboards, a list for the order of cooking, and that’s just for Thanksgiving!

    Planning ahead by making a list does more than just ensure a well cooked dinner for family and friends; it helps you sleep and saves you money.
