  • Testing your Internet speed

    Is your Internet connection fast enough? Probably not, but, how can you find out how fast it really is?

  • Personal Pay Solutions

    The idea of using your smart phone or smart watch to pay for purchases has been around for about a year. Last month I talked about electronic payment systems for small businesses, such as www.square.com and Intuit’s Go Payment. This month, we are going the other way with a couple of personal payment options for you.

  • Letter to the editor - Don Martin

    Dear Editor,

    Regarding the upcoming election for State Senator on May 17, LaRue County Democrats have the opportunity to vote for two candidates running for State Senator in District 5, that includes LaRue County.

    I strongly encourage all voters to check out the candidates on http://www.google.com and type in each candidate’s names.

    Type in Leslie J. Stith and in a separate search type in Richard L. Alvey.

    Voters now can make their own decision on who you want as a State Senator.

    Thanks

    Don Martin

    Dear Editor

    Thanks to the hundreds of Republican voters of LaRue County who turned out to vote in the March 5 Presidential Caucus. The Republican Party of LaRue County received many favorable comments about the organization and conduct of the Caucus. The Caucus was a good example of representative democracy in action. Based on caucus results, delegates have been selected to represent Kentucky at the National Convention in July.

  • It’s political time in LaRue

    The political season is upon us in LaRue County as our state representative and state senator will be decided in 2016.

    With the primary election in May and the general election in November, hopeful candidates have their political campaigns in full swing, displaying their ideas and political platform to the public by knocking on doors in neighborhoods, attending or speaking at events, frequently updating their social media accounts, etc.

  • 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.

  • Spring clean your way to a safer kitchen
