Clinical study makes a difference for Riley

As a small child, Priscilla Riley, now 70, had rheumatic fever that damaged her heart. Her heart problem meant she could not run and play with other children, she says sadly. She could only watch from the sidelines. Her heart problem became something she just lived with, making adjustments as she could. In 1993, she had open-heart surgery to replace two of her heart valves. Recovery was difficult: Riley spent several weeks in the hospital and two months recovering. But the surgery was successful and for a while she felt better.

Kentucky Football — Brawn Over Brains

Brawn Over Brains—By John Huang

NASHVILLE, Tn. — Vanderbilt University touts itself as an elite academic institution. There are a lot of smart people at Vandy with a haughtiness that’s probably rightfully deserved. With ACT scores soaring through the stratosphere, this “Harvard of the South” is pervasively known for kicking academic sand in the face of its fellow SEC brethren.

Solar energy

Solar power means bigger electricity bills for non-solar customers, a group called the Consumer Energy Alliance told a panel of state legislators. CEA’s Brydon Ross told the Interim Joint Committee on Natural Resources and Energy that private credits given to solar customers who participate in programs like net metering–which gives retail credit for excess solar energy fed into the electrical grid—allows those customers to avoid paying costs that most consumers on the grid pay. Kentucky has had a net metering program since 2004.

Charity lied about helping veterans

Attorney General Andy Beshear announced today that his office assisted in shuttering the doors of a charity that misled thousands of donors by claiming contributions supported local veterans. The settlement between 24 states and VietNow National Headquarters Inc., which also uses the name VeteransNow, dissolves the Illinois-based nonprofit corporation. An example of the organization’s conduct is reflected in their most recent financial statement, when VietNow reported raising nearly $2 million nationwide with less than 5 percent of funds going to charitable programs. Attorneys General in California, Illinois and other states also launched an investigation into VietNow, which led to Kentucky’s involvement and the present negotiated resolution. Beshear also reminds Kentucky donors who are not familiar with a charitable organization and how they use their money to verify what percentage of their income goes to the charity’s purpose on CharityNavigator.org. Additional research tools and resources can also be found on the Attorney General’s website.
