  • Why I’m passionate about amputee rehabilitation

    A little over two years ago my dad, Pop as his children call him, started having trouble with his foot. It became infected and to make a long story short, the end result was amputation. From the time of his surgery I have seen Pop make tremendous strides in his recovery. From getting around with a walker and dealing with a healing and painful residual limb to phantom pain and learning to walk all over again, he has endured so much. I couldn’t be more proud of him and his determination to not let his circumstances get him down.

    Since education represents the single-largest category in state spending, more than half of every dollar will go to our public colleges and universities. The General Assembly understandably keeps a close eye on its progress, and with a two-year budget to enact in 2016, now is a good time for a more comprehensive review.

  • Yard sale anthropology

    Yard Sale! It’s a lot of hard work getting everything out and displaying ones goods. When I have visited a yard sale in the past my main objective is to get rid of stuff and eliminate clutter, freeing up some much needed space, so that space can be utilized to it’s full potential (filled with more stuff).

  • Frankfort Focus: Crime is a focus in state legislature

    For decades now, Kentucky State Police have annually compiled a comprehensive look at crime across the commonwealth, giving the public and law enforcement alike a much clearer picture of the challenges we face.
