    Happy New Year! Oh wait, it’s January 17. Where did those 17 days go? I need to hurry up on all those ‘things that I want to do this year’.

  • Senator Meredith’s legislative update

    Now you see him, now you don’t; rumor has it someone has been stalking a stretch of I-65 between Sonora and Glendale. His description: Male, gray hair, gray beard, measuring in at approximately 3’6”—not counting the horns. His name is Houdini, and he’s a goat—who is getting a following.

    It was quite a treat to kick off the pivotal 2018 Session of the General Assembly with the talented 100th Army Band from nearby Fort Knox playing the National Anthem and My Old Kentucky Home.

  • Bring on 2018

    Another holiday season is in the books as Christmas and New Year’s Eve have already passed and we are now into a new year.

    I had been looking forward to seeing the Ark since it opened. It was everything I expected and more.

    It was a different Thanksgiving for my side of the family as my grandpa Caudill, my mom’s dad, has had several medical events happen after he fell on Wednesday, November 22.

    He cracked his left shoulder in several places and completely fractured his left arm. He is very weak and is having a hard time getting around as he is very unstable.
