Government Shutdown
January 21, 2019 by Staff
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told President Trump that he's not invited to deliver the State of the Union to Congress until the government reopens.

Pro-Life Bills Introduced
January 18, 2019 by Staff
Kentucky has become a leader when it comes to protecting unborn life. The latest bill in Frankfort would ban all abortions in the Commonwealth after a heartbeat is detected. This means that at around 6-8 weeks all abortions would be outlawed. This latest pro-life bill is part of a larger pro-life trend. Two years ago, the legislature passed the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Last ...
Addiction Issues
January 17, 2019 by Staff
Addiction is an issue that seems to dominate the news, primarily with the opioid crisis.  There were 1565 heroin overdose deaths in Kentucky in 2017. This is tragic. So how do you define addiction?

January 16, 2019 by Staff
When a mother gives birth to a child one of the first things she hears from the doctor is "it's a boy" or "it's a girl." Such declarations are likely to go by the wayside for parents in New York City.

Jim Glenn garnered 6,319 votes, while his Republican opponent DJ Johnson had 6,318 votes cast in his favor.  Johnson has filed for ...

BBC Science Correspondent Jonathan Amos recently asked, "What chance has NASA of finding life on Mars?" He's referring to the Mars 2020 mission whose purpose is "to determine if life ever existed on Mars."

Gambling on the Agenda
January 11, 2019 by Staff
It's no secret that Kentucky's pension system is underfunded by billions of dollars. Now, several legislators say expanded gambling is the answer. So is Kentucky's Attorney General Andy Beshear. He recommended the legalization of casinos and dedicating the revenue to the faltering pensions. But is gambling really going to solve our financial problems? Think of it this way. Would ...
