    The issue: Furlough days for state workers

    Our view: Not a permanent solution

     

    It appears as if Frankfort is taking a chapter out of the “how to stay in business” book used by the private sector for many years. In a tough economy, tough decisions have to be made to survive financial challenges.

     

    Kentucky has implemented a furlough program beginning July 1, 2010, that will save the state $24 million over six days.

  • My Kitchen, Your Recipe: Crockpot Tostadas

    By MARY ALICE HOLT I visited the Three Springs Farm location on East Dixie Avenue in Elizabethtown recently and was chatting with owner Yvonne DePoyster. The conversation somehow turned, quite naturally, to food. Yvonne was the one who gave me the recipe for Cake Balls a few years ago that was such a hit in this column. Yvonne said her daughter, Jodi Clan, sent her a recipe recently that was really good.

  • Life or something like it: Summer Mission Trips

     

    By SUZANNE DARLAND

    It’s summer. For many churches, that means summer mission trips.

    Not content with giving money for disaster relief or to support orphanages in other countries, more and more are putting feet to their prayers and going to other parts of the country or to other countries to put in some sweat equity.
