Governor to lead statewide Moment of Silence Friday

By Crystal/Sebastian Kitchen

Frankfort, KY - Tomorrow, Gov. Andy Beshear will lead Kentuckians in a statewide moment of silence to pay tribute to the victims and honor the survivors of the terror attacks that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001.

The moment of silence will begin at 8:46amET to correspond with the moment American Airlines Flight 11 struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City, the first of four intentional plane crashes by hijackers that day. The Governor will provide brief remarks on Facebook and YouTube beginning at 8:40amET.

Dog seems to be lost



2020-09-10 - Adair Co., KY - Photo by Mark Archey.
This dog has been hanging around our place on 206 for a few weeks. She is not aggressive, but very scared and probably missing her family. We can't get close enough to catch her. The owners can hopefully come to rescue her. Our contact number is 270-250-9610. --Mark Archey

Carol Perkins: Poor me

Previous Column: Nature Talk

By Carol Perkins

In the last five months, Guy has done a lot of building. A bookcase, two workbenches, and a half a dozen flower boxes. He builds and I paint. Busy hands keep idle minds from drifting to the dark side and developing the "poor me" attitude.

Poor me, I can't see my children or grandchildren. Setting up Facetime takes an act of Congress. Poor me, I can't go to stores, even though sometimes I think, by the number of cars in the parking lots, that I'm the only one not going. Poor me, I can't visit my friends, which has been an important part of my life. Poor me, I can't eat out without increasing my chances. Poor me, I can't travel. Poor me, I can't go to the movies or go to a play. That "poor me" attitude is dangerous and selfish, so I kick myself for being so whiney.

Back in July, I had a future project planned with an older cousin in Tennessee and she was ready to roll, setting up a meeting with a third person.

Much Needed Rest

By Phillip Coffey
Warm Hand touching my face
Glimmer of sunshine has enlightened all
Remove the hustle-bustle without a trace
Yesterday(s) fevered pitch can not recall

Standing in the forest, timber so tall
hesitating to leave this treasured chest
Chlorophyl receding,soon will be fall
Glory Of God, much needed rest.

General Fund and Road Fund receipts for August 2020

General Fund receipts rose 5.9 percent, Year-to-Date up 6.5 percent, Road Fund receipts fell 1.0 percent, Year-to-Date up 2.9 percent

By John Hicks/Greg Harkenrider

Frankfort, KY - State Budget Director John Hicks reported today that General Fund receipts increased 5.9 percent in August compared to last year. Total revenues for the month were $833.8 million, compared to $787.2 million during August 2019. August receipts have reflected the smallest share of yearly amounts over the last five years. So far this fiscal year (FY21), General Fund receipts have increased 6.5 percent.

Road Fund receipts for August totaled $140.8 million, a decrease of 1.0 percent from August 2019 levels. Through the first two months of the fiscal year, collections in this fund have increased 2.9 percent.

Hicks noted that after some recent months of significantly lower tax collections due to the novel coronavirus, receipts have rebounded. "We saw the worst quarterly declines in General Fund receipts from April through June since the Great Recession. Growth rates in July and August have ticked upward supported by substantial federal relief payments to individuals and businesses. Sales and use, and the individual income taxes have been the main drivers of the improvement in collections. Total General Fund collections have increased $106.1 million in July and August over the prior year with sales and individual income taxes accounting for all of the increase. Currently, the primary revenue concern is keeping up the momentum in economic activity in spite of the expiration of much of the federal fiscal policies designed to help the economy. Without another round of federal fiscal stimulus, it will be difficult to maintain the growth in collections we have seen thus far in FY21."
