Legislation that would require Kentucky schools to have personnel trained in diabetes management is headed to the House floor. There were some questions raised in committee Thursday about the measure. Western Kentucky representative Ben Waide asked about diabetes training slippage.
Praise is pouring in for former Kentucky Rep. Eddie Ballard of Madisonville, who died Tuesday at age 81. The Hopkins County Democrat, who retired from the legislature last year, had served in the Kentucky House since 1987. He was chairman of the Tourism, Development and Energy Committee and vice-chair of the State Government committee.
