  • MY WORD/Luke Nichols: What you need to know about interventions

    Dealing with loved ones can be difficult sometimes and that only gets harder when they have a problem with drugs and alcohol.  A big part of dealing with a loved one’s addiction is getting them into treatment. But what if they are unwilling to go? Intervention is the next logical step, however what is an intervention and how you pull one off?

  • WHAT WE THINK: Legislators will take a look at sports gambling

    Legislators filed into Frankfort yesterday to begin what is sure to be a contentious and very busy 30-day session that should start and end with more pension talk than you’ll find at any senior center in the state.

    After the Kentucky Supreme Court struck down last year’s late fix in the sewer/pension bill because of the procedures used – or not used – and Governor Matt Bevin’s failed attempt at a special session ended in a roughly 25-hour dismissal, lawmakers will have to spend nearly every day working on a new plan.

  • GUEST EDITORIAL: Kentucky's high school diplomas must mean more

    Change is scary. I understand that. Yet we have reached the point in Kentucky’s history when change to our minimum standards for high school graduation is necessary to ensure that our children are well-prepared for postsecondary education and the workforce.
