  • Taking money off Mother Nature's 'plate'

     

    Nature lovers believing they are helping to preserve some of Kentucky's greatest treasures, its lands, forests and streams, just got a rude surprise about the special "nature" state license plate they purchase.

    Proceeds from the $10 extra they pay for the plate, which is supposed to go to the Kentucky Heritage Land Conservation Fund, instead are being siphoned off for the ever-insufficient state General Fund and used for other purposes, The Courier-Journal's Tom Loftus reported recently.

  • Governing through the storm

    What a week of weather we have had in the commonwealth. No part of Kentucky was spared the record-breaking snowfall and temperatures this week. As schools, businesses and many government agencies had to close, so did the General Assembly due to the hazardous weather. However, the Senate made the decision to report to work on Thursday and Friday to do the people's work and help pass through legislation that would be in the best interest of our citizens.

  • Play becomes passion for Gowdy

     

    Tonya Gowdy had a lot of dolls growing up.

    And, as so many little girls do, she cared for and treated those dolls as if they were her own children.

    The older she got, the more she realized that what she had been practicing with the dolls had actually grown into one of her greatest passions: looking after children.

    “It actually first came about ever since I was little,” Gowdy said. “I had that passion of working with kids, and it all kind of started just playing with and caring for those dolls.”
