  • Early release from prison may be a necessary evil

    As Gov. Steve Beshear announced his budget plans last week, he described significant cuts which he acknowledged would reach into services that most Kentuckians consider vital.

    It appears we got a head start on the bad news Jan. 3, when the state released nearly 1,000 prisoners into various communities. While changes in the penal code last year led to the release, the Get Out of Jail Free cards will translate into savings of an estimated $40 million.

    Well there has been a slight accumulation of the white stuff, but I don’t think any of the snow lovers have had their fill yet.  The storms that hit last Tuesday were not the type of storm we expect during the winter months. I hope everyone endured safely.
