Kentucky Labor Cabinet warns employers of increased risk of carbon monoxide poisoning

Wintry weather and extremely cold temperatures mean an increased chance of cases involving carbon monoxide poisoning in the workplace. When fuel-burning equipment or tools are used in buildings or in semi-enclosed spaces without ventilation, workers can become ill or die from carbon monoxide poisoning.

“Carbon monoxide is so dangerous because it doesn’t have an odor or a taste,” said Kentucky Labor Cabinet Secretary Larry Roberts. “It becomes an increased hazard when workplaces start shutting windows and doors to keep out the cold weather.”

Legislative perspective on Kentucky General Assembly

Every so often during a legislative session, the Kentucky House of Representatives will take a moment to pay tribute to a select group of people who are doing their part to move Kentucky forward.

With that in mind, I was proud to sponsor a resolution last week that recognized our charitable food banks, which were also honored during a ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda.

Sen. Katie Stine reviews Kentucky congressional week

The 2014 Regular Session is now in full swing and job creation, education, health and safety issues and good government are among the priorities emerging. As a member of leadership I have been focused on making  committee assignments for proposed legislation to ensure that each issue is addressed by the committee of corresponding jurisdiction. Committee meetings are taking place each morning and then the full Senate meets each afternoon. In between, I continued meeting with constituents and stake holders regarding a myriad of issues. I have been especially focused on the rising rate of heroin addiction, overdose deaths, and other drug related crimes in our community.


I have owned a dog of some type all my life. I prefer hounds or terriers. They are so friendly and gentle. None of the dogs I have ever owned were valuable. Whatever value my dogs had, came from the love and attention they gave me. They were always glad to see me early in the morning or late at night. My dogs were content to let me boss and never challenged or took offense to anything I did. They make me feel important. Whenever the world seemed to be falling apart, all I had to do to see that someone cared was to whistle for my dog and he would come wagging his tail.

When Janice and I left Butler for Florida on January 3, it was 2 above zero. According to our neighbors, the temperature that day did not get above 8 above and fell to 10 below that night. And, as you are well aware, it has been a relatively cold and snowy winter thus far. We began to wonder how this winter compared to other unusually cold and snowy ones. We talked with some old timers and consulted with Ms. Cheri  Figgins, Director of the Pendleton County Public Library which has files of most, if not all, of The Falmouth Outlooks. Following are our findings:
