U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell applauded passage of a bipartisan bill, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, which promotes job training and workforce development programs. The legislation, which Senator McConnell supported, reauthorizes the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) and eliminates and streamlines several ineffective and duplicative programs to make job training and workforce development systems more effective. It was last reauthorized in 1998.

“This bipartisan legislation will help ensure the job training programs in Kentucky and across the country are effective and provide the support people need to help get them back to work,” Senator McConnell said. “The

Betty’s Amber Glacé

(Click read more for Ingredients)

½ cup white granulated sugar
½ cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
½ cup orange juice
½ cup crushed peanut brittle
1 pint vanilla ice cream
mint sprigs, for garnish

In a medium to large pot, mix white sugar, brown sugar, and orange juice. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until temperature is approximately 220 degrees. (It is better to undercook than overcook this glaze. If overcooked, the glaze will harden and will not be pourable or spoonable.) Let mixture cool. Place scoops of vanilla ice cream in sherbet dishes and top with the Glacé. Sprinkle crushed peanut brittle over the top. Garnish with a mint sprig and serve immediately. YUM! I hope you enjoy the interesting taste of this Amber Glacé! –Betty

At approximately 12:35 A.M., a complainant notified the Madison County 9-1-1 Center that he had been robbed at gunpoint at Miller’s Landing Car Wash, 944 Red House Road. The complainant reported that he was approached by a male in wearing a ski mask who produced a handgun and a hammer and demanded money from the victim. The victim surrendered approximately $1,250.00 in cash (revised, originally reported as $500.00). The suspect then entered an awaiting vehicle and fled from the scene. The victim proceeded to pursue the suspect vehicle northbound on Red House Road until the victim collided with another vehicle, thus ending his pursuit of the suspects. The victim suffered minor injuries and declined medical treatment. However, the driver of the vehicle in which he was riding suffered neck and back injuries and was transported to the UK Medical Center for treatment. The victim reported that during the chase he was shot at from the suspect vehicle and a hammer was

In the last few weeks, ever since the new national carbon emissions standards were released, I have read a number of editorials about the impact this will have on Kentucky. None of these articles, however, really relied upon the latest and most undisputed evidence regarding the long-term effect of this policy on the commonwealth.

Perhaps the excellent article written by Nancy Grant in the June edition of “Kentucky Living” magazine was overlooked, but the public has a right to know what has happened in Germany when it went down this road. Her article – “Germany rethinks renewable energy” – is very telling as it details the disastrous
