  • Former CKNJ news editor honored

    Steve Lowery, former news editor at the Central Kentucky News-Journal, was a visionary. He could see the potential even before most of us could even fathom what could lie ahead.

  • A gardner's dilema: Should I stay or should I go?

    A friend and gardening mentor told me when I first ventured into this labor of love called gardening that this hobby should be relaxing. "If it's stressful," he told me, "you're taking it too seriously."

    His words echo in my ears as I stare at the freshly plowed ground, that chore the courtesy of a friend kind enough to break up the soil for me.

    It happens every year: "Can I do this? Do I really want to start with the planting, the cultivating, the weeding?"

  • Racism a problem, no matter your race

    In journalism, if you need a source for a story, you talk to someone who has a point of view to share for your story. You do that regardless of the person's background, and particularly regardless of their race.

  • Allen surprised with Kentucky Colonel honor

     

    When Garry Gupton, executive director of the honorable order of Kentucky Colonels, found out that former Campbellsville mayor Brenda Allen was not a Kentucky Colonel, he appealed to the governor’s office to “correct that oversight,” which they approved. However, he still wanted to think of a creative way to present Allen with this award, so he came up with “a little bit of a ruse.”

  • Two Democrats seek gubernatorial nod

     

    Since January of 2008, Jack Conway has been serving as the Kentucky Attorney General, where he said he has been working to make Kentucky a safer place to live and work. He hopes to continue serving the state of Kentucky as its next governor. Conway's opponent in the Democratic primary is Geoffrey "Geoff" Young of Lexington. Young said he has 36 years of experience working in the political arena, dealing with issues related to energy policy, economic development and protecting the environment. The two will face off in the May 19 primary.
