A Word from the Wise…

Sometimes the worst decisions turn into the best stories. I made one of those decisions last week.As the sun sunk low over the Green River, we three kayakers were scanning the banks for places to set up camp.Exhausted from 20 miles of paddling in the blazing sun, we searched for a spot where we could comfortably and conveniently put up for the night, and turned down the first few potential campsites in hopes of finding a better one around the next bend of the river....

Coming to a close

Time to Stand United

The last time the United States considered a drawdown of military forces and infrastructure, the entire Heartland region of Kentucky dodged a bullet. We looked down the barrel of the Base Realignment and Closure and realized that Fort Knox represents a significant impact to our regional economy—not to mention an ongoing contributor of energy and vitality in the form of soldiers and civilian employees and their families.
