Oh, Kentucky

I need to start regularly watching Kentucky Life, so I think I'm going to plan to start pasting it in the Monday #ohkys:

"I'm kidding. I'm kidding. That was Barack Obama."

Kentucky is all about apprenticeships these days. For example, Barren County has launched them in office management, through the judge-executive's office, and culinary arts and transportation maintenance, through the public schools, and the state has rolled out what it says is the first-of-its-kind program for government social services. Now all of these people connected to registered apprenticeships around the state are being invited to Louisville in September: "The goals of the Summit will be accomplished by: (1) providing a forum for businesses, education leaders, government officials and others to gather and exchange practical ideas/models for building a robust and sustainable apprenticeship pipeline; (2) delivering access to thought-provoking national and international speakers experienced in managing apprenticeship program in both plenary and workforce sector breakouts; (3) and offering a career fair for high school students, underserved populations and veterans for days two and three of the summit in conjunction with the renowned UPS Career Fair." 

Also: drones.

One person was hospitalized after a roller-coaster problem at Kentucky Kingdom on Saturday.

Nice Leah Shields feature for Channel 6 on a police officer's retirement in Marshall County.


  1. I have a feeling Bowling won't be going home again after he leaves for college.

  2. We've had an interesting valedictory-speech season in Kentucky.
