    Some older Americans go back to work because they lost their savings due to economic problems beyond their control.

  • Court ruling a major victory for landowners

    The State Journal

    In his ruling Tuesday on the Bluegrass Pipeline, Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd said much the same as several legislators pushing for a bill addressing the issue of eminent domain.

    Shepherd’s decision saying the company does not have the power of eminent domain doesn’t preclude the construction of a pipeline through Kentucky; it only stops the real or threatened seizure of property from unwilling landowners.

  • Spring fever: Time to plant cool-weather favorites

    Life is good! Winter is over and I get a few days off to celebrate spring’s arrival. So what if it is a cool spring. It’s still way warmer than those bone chilling months and I’ve got spring fever! The moon is right so I’m planting onions, potatoes, spinach and lettuce seeds. I’ve got broccoli plants to put in as well.

    I feel really bad for all the teachers and kids who had to miss spring break so I thought I’d share a little humor in that vein. I know there will be some “skippers” in the school district!

  • Beliefs meaningless if you don't fight for them

    By Brian Owens

    Faith columnist

    Last Thursday was a sad day for those hoping to see the tide turn in Frankfort regarding legal protection for unborn children.

    The House Health and Welfare Committee struck down three pro-life bills that were designed to reduce the approximately 4,000 abortions that are performed yearly in Kentucky. That’s an average of nearly 11 babies murdered every day.

  • LETTER: Tell senators to support HB31 to preserve landowner's rights

    To the editor:

    Do we live in a democracy? The dictionary defines a democracy as a form of  government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised  by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system.

    The passage of HB 31 by the House was an indication of democracy at work –  a case of private property rights versus corporate interests. This bill  prohibits the use of eminent domain by developers of hazardous natural gas liquids pipelines.
