  • Freed prisoners ease financial pressure on state government

    More than 900 state inmates have been granted early release from prisons and jails as a section of House Bill 463, legislation aimed at reforming Kentucky’s penal code, went into effect.

    As stipulated by HB 463, prisoners released Tuesday were within six months of completing their sentences and will go into the supervision of the Department of Probation and Parole for the remainder of time.

    State Sen. Dennis Parrett, who voted in favor of the bill, said the move is estimated to save the state about $40 million annually.

    Happy New Year everyone. We got off to a wintery start with snow flurries and slick roads Monday evening. I’m glad we didn’t have to be out, for I hear they were pretty treacherous in some places. If this year passes as quickly as the past one did, it will be summer before we turn around. But then winter never can pass quickly enough to suit me.

    A LITTLE SNOW. I’m not the biggest fan of snow, but it’s pretty coming down. I just don’t like it on the roads. Last Monday night the roads were slick because of the cold temperatures.

    Remember to put straw in your pets’ houses if outdoors to keep them warm and give them fresh water every day. Don’t assume the iced water will melt.

    ROOK. Rook is played at 7 p.m. each Thursday at the HowevalleyVertreesCommunity building. Everyone is welcome.
