  • The importance of Constitution Day

    It may not be celebrated as much as Independence Day, but Constitution Day is arguably just as important. While July 4 recognizes the birth of our nation, Sept. 17 commemorates the day we established the cornerstone of our government and secured our rights as citizens.

  • Frankfort Focus - Innovative women from Kentucky

    Last week, the United States celebrated the 95th anniversary of women’s right to vote, a milestone made possible by the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    Kentucky was the 23rd state to ratify that amendment, but it did not clear its final legislative hurdle until Tennessee became the 36th state in August 1920. Interestingly, that decision was a close one, occurring only when a young legislator voted in favor at the request of his mother.

  • Where Opportunity Knox, anniversary

    It is hard to believe Where Opportunity Knox, a regional initiative to connect 10,000 transitioning veterans and military spouses to jobs and the Greater Louisville Region by the end of 2017, is celebrating its first anniversary in September.

    In the last year, nearly 1,500 veterans and spouses have been connected with employment opportunities throughout the region and over 130 participating employers have signed up to support this initiative.
