  • MY WORD/Ken Pratt: Let me tell you a story

    Do you know how to tell the difference between a fairy tale and a lie? A fairy tale starts out, “Once upon a time…” and a lie starts out, “This is the truth, no BS…”

  • GUEST COLUMN/Stuart Sanders: Speed to burn: Kentucky’s pioneering aviator Willa Brown Chappell

    Mary Ellis, one of the last surviving female pilots from World War II, died on July 25 at age 101.

    A member of Great Britain’s Royal Air Force, Ellis delivered fighter planes and bombers from factories to air bases.  She is estimated to have flown more than 1,000 Spitfires, Hurricanes, Lancaster bombers and other aircraft during the war.

    These were, however, no simple deliveries. Ellis faced constant danger, including German fighters and friendly fire. She also once suffered a crash landing when her Spitfire’s landing gear jammed.

    A matter of time

    It’s just a matter of time you know

    Til your joints begin to creak,

    And you have to work much harder

    For that youthful look you seek.

    Yes, once you were so slender,

    Now those clothes no longer fit.

    You exercise with vigor

    But your body wants to quit.

    It’s just a matter of time you know

    Til your skin begins to sag.

    Wrinkles soon will find your face

    And your energy seems to lag.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Clouds gather in Frankfort for Sunshine Week

    Here we are, right smack dab in the middle of National Sunshine Week, and the Kentucky Legislature is as cloudy as the weather.
    Sunshine Week, March 11-17, celebrates transparency in government and promotes Sunshine Laws in place so citizens can know what their government is doing by highlighting the importance of open records, meetings and freedom of information.
    The same day the Kentucky House of Representatives recognized House Resolution 220, in honor of Sunshine Week, House Bill 200 was received in the Senate Committee of Appropriations and Revenue.
