Good evening! I'm finally back from all the summer vacations, including driving to Virginia and back yesterday for a family wedding. (Whew!) So, I've got more time for the site ... and just in time, as the election is starting to heat up.

Speaking of hearing up, even the climate change deniers are finally having to admit that we are moving into uncharted territory. I don't oftem promote my own articles, but if you haven't read it, I hope you will read and share the article listed below on the climate crisis.

And finally, there's a few updates below, with a chance for some feedback. Hope to hear from you about them.

Thanks for being a member of Forward Kentucky!



A ForwardKY store? – I've put up a store on the site once before, and it was sorta successful. (We didn't lose money, so that made it a success. 😉)
    So, I'm kicking it around again, and need your feedback. Would you be interested in any of these things?
    – Political bumper stickers
    – ForwardKY-themed items
    – Collections of articles by some of our writers
    – Collection of Aaron Smith's editorial cartoons
    – Anything else you want to suggest?
    Just reply to this email if you have an opinion – especially if that opinion means you might actually spend money at such a story. 😊

Forum seeding – Since the activity on the forum has slowed down some during the summer, I'm going to “seed” it with some new discussion topics. Watch for an article on the site once I do.
