  • Roads may grow but highway numbers remain

    Ky. 313 runs from Interstate 65 across the countryside near Colesburg, crossing U.S. 31W on a rapidly developing corner of Radcliff’s south side before heading toward Vine Grove and coming to an abrupt end near the edge of Hardin County.
    When it was proposed almost three decades ago, the idea was to eventually create an alternative connection from Interstate 64 in southern Indiana to southbound I-65.
    I remember that detail vividly from covering an initial public hearing about the route in the second-floor meeting room of Radcliff City Hall.

  • The politics of rules, and vice versa

    This year’s General Assembly in Frankfort came to a familiar end. The regular session was followed by a coda — special session — to finally tie things up.
    The sticking point was how to patch a $140 million shortfall in this year’s Medicaid budget.
    Gov. Steve Beshear’s plan, in short, was to “borrow” money from the second year of Medicaid’s budget and cut spending next year through privatization.

    I have really been enjoying the beautiful sunshiny, warm days we have been having and the spring flowers are so beautiful, especially after such a cold and dreary winter.

    CONGRATULATIONS. Congratulations to our College Heights United Methodist Church Associate/Youth Minister Joe Bennett and his wife, Andrea, upon the arrival of their son, William Danger Bennett, on March 17, which by the way was also my birthday. He weighed 8 pounds, 2 ounces and was 19 inches in length. I understand he and his parents are doing well.
