By Lorran Hart Ferguson

Frankfort, KY - HB 139, the bill seeking to establish the Kentucky Financial Empowerment Commission to bring greater financial empowerment to Kentuckians at no cost to taxpayers, is now law, according to a statement released by Kentucky State Treasurer Allison Ball's Office.

Commentary: The School Safety Act

Political commentary by Rep. John "Bam" Carney and Sen. Max Wise

There are very few Kentuckians who do not remember how they felt when they heard of last year's shooting at Marshall County High School. As parents who share a strong passion for education, this tragedy shook us to the core.

As legislators, we realized that our state had to do more to prevent school violence, not only to protect potential victims, but also to recognize warning signs and provide services to potential perpetrators. With the 2019 Regular Session coming to a close, it is our hope that this session will be defined by our response to the tragedy at Marshall County High School, the School Safety and Resiliency Act.

This transformative measure passed into law as Senate Bill 1 and is the result of months of work by the School Safety Working Group.

"...You know how it feels when a part of you cuts off the circulation and it kind of tingles for a while? Well the whole right side of my body was tingling... and it wasn't going away." She tells her story - not so others can do what she did - but so they will know "what NOT to do."

By Linda Waggener

Patsy Robertson shared her personal experience with a stroke eloquently and bluntly to a full audience in attendance at the awareness meeting held last week by the Adair Extension Homemakers in partnership with TJ Health Columbia.

Offensive production lets LWC Softball sweep Pikeville

By Chris Wells

Eighth-ranked Lindsey Wilson softball matched its Friday production with another doubleheader sweep of visiting Pikeville (KY) today to win all four games in the weekend series at Marilyn D. Sparks Park.

Much like Friday, the Blue Raiders (23-1, 8-0 in the Mid-South Conference) used the formula of big offensive innings and strong pitching to run their winning streak to 10 straight.

The Lindsey Wilson offense posted double-digit hits in both games while Taylor Slade and Abby Whelan held the Bears (17-11, 2-4) in check in wins of 7-1 and 11-3, the latter coming in five innings.
