  • Living Strong continuing legacy

    In 2004-2005, Jim Rogers was fighting a battle like no other, a battle for his life. Given only a small chance of survival from his cancer, he and his family refused to give up and sought out medical treatments and expertise in other states. During the treatments, Janis was approached by fellow First Baptist Church member Emma Cox about starting a Relay for Life team to support Jim and his family. Janis and Jim soon had several family members and fellow church members step up and the rest is history.

  • Frankfort Focus - The veto process

    Other than constitutional amendments, which go before the voters, every bill the General Assembly passes has to clear one final hurdle before becoming law: The governor’s pen.

    The governor has the authority to sign or reject bills, or to let them become law without a signature. He or she can only approve or veto bills in their entirety – except in budgetary matters, which can be line-item vetoed without affecting the rest.

  • May is Kentucky Water Awareness month

    Are you water aware? Do you know how your home and garden water use impacts the water around you? May is Kentucky Water Awareness Month, and that’s a good time to think about how what we do affects the health of waterways in Kentucky and beyond.

    Kentucky has more than 90,000 miles of rivers and streams. Each stream eventually meets the Mississippi River, either directly or via the Ohio River. That means everything we put into the water can potentially reach as far as the Gulf of Mexico.
