Danger: Snake Creek Road remains closed, water over bridge

ACJE Cowan is asking that the barricade signs be left in place for the protection and safety of citizens.

Adair County Judge Executive Gale Cowan would like to remind the residents of Adair County that Snake Creek Road is still closed to through traffic due to water remaining high, covering the Snake Creek Road Bridge.

Signs have been posted on multiple occasions and are being taken down repeatedly. I am asking that people please leave the barricade signs in place for the protection and safety of our citizens.

This is not only causing a danger to our citizens, but also costing the tax payers of Adair County in overtime pay when our road department is being called out all hours of the night to put the signs back up.

Lawmakers proposing $105M tax break to banks and others

By Tom Loftus, Louisville Courier Journal

Legislative leaders on Wednesday approved a tax break sought by Kentucky-based banks, adding it to the session's major tax bill that is now estimated to cost the state about $105 million in annual revenue.

And the move comes at the same time lawmakers are poised to also give relief to local health departments, regional universities and others from a spike in the pension costs they face starting July 1 -- a move that will shift hundreds of millions of dollars in annual pension costs to state taxpayers.

Letter: Governor spends half his time on pension issue

Robert Cumming writes:
The governor probably spent half his time at the town forum addressing the seriousness of the state pension issue. Ky is the worst in the nation in underfunded government pensions.

Kentucky is at the critical point where more people are collecting retirement benefits than current employees paying into the state retirement system. For far too long there was little accountability over the state retirement board and how and where the government employee retirement money collected was invested.

Unfortunately many of these poor retirement board investments paid little or no dividends. Now suddenly the so called 'inviolable contract' with government workers is in dire shape! --Robert Cumming

What to watch at the end of the 2019 legislative session

By Daniel Desrochers, Lexington Herald-Leader

Lawmakers in Frankfort are likely in for long days as they head into the final four days of the legislative session this week. While the House and Senate already passed their priority legislation -- a school-safety bill that encourages schools to hire more school resource officers and mental health counselors -- there are still plenty of bills waiting in the hopper.

The legislature will have three days this week -- Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday -- to pass bills before they give up the ability to override a veto from Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin. Then they'll come in on Friday, March 29, to finish off any business they left unattended and override any vetos Bevin issues.
