Governor loses round in Ky Supreme Court
Governor loses round in Ky Supreme Court

The Kentucky Supreme Court ruled today that the Governor's unilateral cutting of university budgets was unconstitutional. In a 5-2 ruling, the Court ruled that the Governor exceeded his authority. The "cut" was not so much a denial of allocated funds as an order to the universities to not spend the funds allocated. Justice Noble said that once the funds were allocated, the governor could not tell universities not to spend them.

As would be expected, press releases immediately came from the parties.

River County Group has a new name and an old attitude

At a steering committee meeting on September 8th, facilitator Jonathan Miller announced the results of an online pick the best name with best acronym contest to name the group formerly known as the River County Economic Development Project.

One that says great people, great jobs, great pay, opportunity for growth, happiness and bluebirds and all things chocolate. One that costs the four counties participating in the economic development project nothing.

Free. Zero. Zip. Nada.

Green Creatures That Haunt Our Yards and Minds
Green Creatures That Haunt Our Yards and Minds

Thinking just how the piece of wood looked totally out of place nestled within the bed of soft spoken rain drops and fiber of the morning rain, I reached toward it.
