  • Connected and disconnected

    As a part of Leadership LaRue, I got to go visit the state capitol in Frankfort last Wednesday and Thursday.

    We all really enjoyed it and I think we all had a great time. Our newly elected Representative Brandon Reed and Senator Steve Meredith spent time with us. We got to see both the house and Senate in session as well as hear a case being brought before the state Supreme Court. We toured parts of the governor’s office and mansion. Our time was jam-packed but we got to see a lot about how our state government operates.

  • Update from your State Senator

    By Steve Meredith
    State Senator, District 5

    The hallways were packed with Kentuckians from across the state making their voices heard as we began the second part of the 2017 Legislative Session in Frankfort. I was especially heartened at the passionate crowd for the Rally for Life on Wednesday, February 8, and later in the evening that energy and excitement continued during Governor Bevin’s State of the Commonwealth Address.

  • Update from your State representative

    By Brandon Reed
    State Representative, 24th District


    The General Assembly returned to Frankfort this week after a brief organizational break, and the week has been filled with legislative meetings as well as the daily session. Most importantly, when we returned we heard from Governor Matt Bevin as he delivered the State of the Commonwealth to a joint session of the House and Senate.

  • Be ready when fishing opportunities arise

    Planning a fishing trip more than a couple of days ahead of time can be a gamble in late winter when the weather is a mixed bag and the favorable conditions here today may be gone tomorrow.

    With some advance preparation, you can be ready to grab what you need and go when that friend calls at daybreak or the impulse strikes and the schedule allows for a last-minute trip.

    Performing regular maintenance on your reels can prevent catastrophic problems or costly repairs down the road.

  • Sunrise Volunteers news

    February 14 is known for centuries as Valentine’s Day; a day of proclaiming love for others. Almost everybody has someone special to love, almost. Once in a while there is someone who slips through the cracks of recognition, friendship, and love. In out community some at Sunrise Manor fall in to this category; unrecognized and neglected.

    “What can I do,” you ask? Come and see for yourself the fulfillment of volunteering! Visit someone; take them to an activity, read the Bible to them, show the love of Christ toward them; in short just be a good neighbor.
