Sustainability: Thy Name is in the Death of a Water Pump
Sustainability: Thy Name is in the Death of a Water Pump

On a recent morning, in the small town of Clinton, Ky. the sunshine was just breaking through the trees and leaves of a promising May morning. Having just enjoyed the thrill of my first cup of morning coffee upon the front porch, I took in the beauty unfolding before me.

At first, my mind did not register the fact that there was no water flowing. From the faucet, just a sound forming a cloud of nothingness. It took a whole 3 seconds for the enjoyment and good feeling from that first cup of coffee, to be blown away with the realization that there was no water. The well was not working.

After Resting, Rusting in the Plague Year, I'm Coming Back

Apologies to those who read this site faithfully over twelve years we've been publishing only to wonder if we had located to another planet when year 13 rolled around...

...my heart wasn't in writing. What used to keep me in the office until the light faded outside and Ivan was calling to see if I had been mugged dissipated like a Kentucky April snowfall. There were few news reports I felt like adding one more word to write about.

The Year of the Plague made it worse. When we did go out, we went masked and fearful. Scrubbing our hands with sanitizer and avoiding human touch. Why in the hell would I want to write about that?

Defund the Big Lies

The "Big Lie" that the election was "stolen" from Donald J. Trump is only the most recent lie spread on cable shows, the internet, and radio that have given so many a crazy sense of reality...

One would think that a Capitol Hill seditious insurrection and 500,000+ COVID deaths would force corporate advertisers to react to their advertising/underwriting of such dangerous lies.

Bill targeting sex crimes by police goes to House

FRANKFORT - Legislation addressing sexual offenses committed by police officers while on duty passed the Kentucky Senate today by a 35-0 vote.

The measure, known as Senate Bill 52, would amend third-degree rape, third-degree sodomy and second-degree sexual abuse statutes so law enforcement officers could be charged with those crimes if they engage in sexual acts with a person under investigation, in custody or under arrest. A loophole in the current statutes excludes law enforcement officials, according to testimony from a committee hearing on the bill earlier this month.
