Good morning! Hope your weekend is going well.
    No significant changes to report on the site this week. The focus continues to be on basically two topics: the historically bad rulings by the Supreme Court, and the race between Andy Beshear and Daniel Cameron for the governorship. And speaking of those issues, I encourage you to listen to the podcasts from our ForwardKY family: “My Old Kentucky Podcast” and “Colonels of Truth.” Some good insight and commentary there. I especially enjoy hearing lawyer Jazmin Smith weigh in on the legal issues, such as the recent blocking of SB 150.
    Have a good week, keep reading our stories, and thanks for being a member of Forward Kentucky!
