  • Frankfort Regional Medical seeks votes for Pink Glove dance video

    Frankfort Regional Medical Center has entered the 2013 Medline Pink Glove Dance Competition for a chance to win a $25,000 donation to the Kentucky Pink Connection and international social media attention—and needs your vote, hospital officials said in a news release.

  • School board funds study to fight state cuts

    The Anderson County school board wants more state funding for district education, and believes adopting a resolution Monday will help appeal its cause to Kentucky lawmakers.
    School board president James Sargent, recently selected to serve a three-year term on the Kentucky School Boards Association (KSBA), presented the KSBA’s funding resolution to his fellow board members Monday night.

  • 2014 election packets are now ready

    Fall. You might think cooler weather and leaves falling. We at the clerk’s office are thinking candidate filings.  Anyone wanting to run for a county office can file the forms with our office beginning Nov. 6 and ending on Jan. 28, 2014.
    The races on the ballot next May include the offices of judge, county attorney, property valuation adminstrator, sheriff, county clerk, jailer, coroner, surveyor, magistrates and constables.

  • Leaves help brighten November doldrums

    Are you ready to travel back in time? You don’t even have to pack a bag. You just have to remember to change all your clocks. At midnight, this Sunday, Daylight Savings Time officially ends. Soon, we’ll be driving home from work in the dark.
    I’ll miss my evening walks with the dogs after work. I’ll miss hopping on the mower after work. I’ll miss weeding and harvesting in the garden after work. The only things I get to pick now are the stick tights covering my clothes.

  • Hamburger, ground beef aren’t same

    Is there a difference between hamburger and ground beef? The answer is yes but it’s not a big difference.
    Ground beef must be made of trimmings that contain the targeted fat percentage. For example, if a package is labeled 80 percent lean/20 percent fat ground beef, then the beef trimmings that the ground beef is made from must contain those percentages. On the other hand, hamburger may be made of beef fat added to the meat block to create the desired fat percentage.

  • $1M healthcare question

    Ben, the man pictured directly above me on this page, recently handed me a news article about $1 million.
    Turns out that during a recent school board meeting in Woodford County, the Woodford County school board learned they could face $1 million in Affordable Care Act or Obamacare penalties if it failed to offer adequate health insurance to those full-time employees working 30 hours a week.

  • Medicaid flourishing here, not Obamacare

    Uh oh. That was my takeaway after watching Gov. Steve Beshear’s appearance Sunday on “Meet the Press.”
    Paraded out by Democrats looking for something, anything positive to say about Obamacare, Beshear was supposed to trumpet how well Kentucky has done signing up people for the controversial health tax (yes, I said tax, not law, and point to the Supreme Court decision to back it up).
    Beshear did an admirable job spouting that there have been roughly 25,000 sign-ups and heralding the state’s ability to create a website that actually works.
