No appetite for fixing school lunch

You can lead a kid to vegetables, but you can’t make her eat. Especially if the food doesn’t taste good.That’s what the government found out in the wake of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.I was active in advocating for school lunch reform at the time. The bill became law shortly after I published a book on U.S. food policy. It seemed like such a perfect solution: Fix school lunch and you improve the diets of millions of kids instantly. You also...

Wright wrong about right-to-work

The closer Kentucky moves toward a right-to-work policy, the more agitated opponents become.But I’m hopeful that facts about what a right-to-work policy is, is not and how it’s working in the 24 states that already have it will trump false claims and fear mongering by those who seem woefully confused about the issue.Steven Wright of Hodgenville based on his recent ideological missive published by the Elizabethtown News-Enterprise definitely is among those mis...

Protecting our infants act

Kentucky has a growing prescription drug abuse and heroin abuse problem, and the scope of the problem is shocking. Our state has the nation’s third-highest mortality rate from drug overdoses, which are largely driven by prescription painkillers. According to the Kentucky Office of Drug Control Policy, about 1,000 Kentuckians a year fatally overdose on drugs—that’s more than are lost to fatal car crashes. Heroin deaths continue to climb and accounted for 32 percent of the dru...

Lake Malone

I must tell you that you all can quit doing any kind of “RAIN DANCE” immediately. Mother Nature took care of us at the lake today and I do believe we had enough water to last us at least a month. It worked because here it is a few days later and I want to tell you we had a few “thunder bummers”!” One night the lights went out and I had to find all the flash lights. Then the next day we had a few showers and here it is Saturday and the bottom fell out again! I am ...

Logan County

Hello again from Peach Blossom Hall, my old house with high ceilings, gun shots in the wall, a hidden room and burial site and its’ own ghost that plays music and sings, sitting right in the middle of the county since 1830. Yes, I do sleep well at night and hope to do so for a good while yet.

Adairville

Adairville is Under the Dome or so it seems. All the rain that has been blessing our surrounding area had completely missed us until Monday and we got a little, for which we are thankful. We still need more so bad because our yards and crops here are looking so bad. I know though that we will get it in God’s time.My joyfulness person for the week is Hugh Gannon. He is always upbeat and cheerful and it’s always a pleasure to be in his company. He is a positive force in o...

Eleventh Step

People in Twelve Steps programs for recovery from addiction or some other disorder are familiar with the Eleventh Step. “We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood [God], praying only for knowledge of [God’s] will for us and the power to carry that out.” Earlier in the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous one came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity (step 2). Steps three, five, six...

Kentuckians deserve to have their voices heard by the EPA in President Obama’s war on coal

The War on Coal being waged by this Administration has real costs for Kentuckians and for Kentucky jobs. The barrage of over-regulation and lack of certainty in the coal industry have contributed to a loss of 7,000 jobs since the year President Obama took office.Despite the claims of many, it doesn’t have to be this way. According to the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet, Kentucky coal jobs were actually up during the previous administration, by 3,500 jobs from 2001 to ...

Broadening broadband: Less government, more access; better government, more usage

While Senate Bill 99 was left to languish on the precipice during this year’s General Assembly, the legislature instead agreed to issue $30 million of taxpayer-backed bonds with the stated goal of providing broadband access in eastern Kentucky to promote job growth.Frankfort’s big-spending politicians opted for spending millions in “Silicon Holler” while denying a bill that would have reduced regulatory burdens that discourage additional private investment i...

Fears change as one grows older

Fears we have are often very real and can be traumatizing.My mother’s younger sister was afraid of anything with feathers. As children will do, if my mother and her friends wanted to play without little sister, they would go upstairs and lay a feather on the stairs behind them so she would not follow.Being afraid of the dark is a common childhood fear. I never feared monsters under the bed, but going down the path to close the door of the hen house after dark was t...
