  • Frankfort Focus - Education pays

    In the late 1990s, the state rolled out a simple but effective campaign summarized by two words: “Education pays.”

    That popular slogan came on the heels of a landmark overhaul of our public postsecondary schools and the creation of such programs as KEES, the lottery-based college scholarships that high school students earn with good grades, and “Bucks for Brains,” which added hundreds of millions of state and private dollars to our university research budgets.

  • The Snipping Tool and other Windows Goodies

    I have so much fun introducing people to some of the hidden tools in Windows. Many have been there for years, but they just were not aware of them.

    The first one I want to introduce you to is the Snipping Tool. The Snipping Tool has been a part of the Microsoft Windows Operating System since at least Windows 7.

  • Letter to the editor - Nile and Ruth Riddle

    Dear Editor,

    Many people may take first emergency respondents for granted, but assuredly that was not the situation on Thursday, November 12, as a fire assisted by 20 to 30 mile winds rushed rampantly through our garage/tool shed.

    We appreciate the hard work and the effort that were given by the Buffalo and Hodgenville Fire Departments as they extinguished the fire and prevented it from spreading to other buildings on our farm. Thank you.

    Sincerley.

  • Letter to the editor - November 18, 2015

    Dear Editor,

    The Community Health Clinic of Hardin and LaRue Counties has been in existence since 2001 in Elizabethtown. This clinic was created to serve the working poor in Hardin and Laure Counties. Over the years our services expanded to include those that had no income. In 2014, with the implementation of the ACA, many of our patients qualified for the Medicaid expansion, but those that did not, remained with the clinic after getting on Kynect and finding that the insurance was out of their reach financially.

  • Used car shopping quest and the car seat rodeo

    For the last of couple months we’ve been on the hunt for a mythical object. The quest for this holy grail took us as far as Cincinnati only to be disappointed and find that the object of our hunt had left just before our arrival. At least the kids got to play on one of the largest playgrounds I’ve ever seen and John bought me an Ohio t-shirt at Walgreens.

    It seems as though this thing of legend is everywhere and everyone has one, but when it comes time for us to find one there aren’t any to be found at least not close to home.
