Frankfort’s Fishing Reels: Jewels of the Bluegrass

Frankfort has a very unique place in history as being the town where the bait casting fishing reel was perfected and first produced. Every place has its historic event or figure, but only we have this distinction. It was a Frankfort industry for over 100 years. Local craftsmen handmade these gems to fish the renowned streams of central Kentucky. Their reputation for quality and beauty was recognized around the world.

1:00 – 2:30 pm – US Rep. John Yarmuth: Dark Money, at the Paul Sawyier Public Library, 319 Wapping Street

Together Frankfort invites the community to hear U.S. Congressman John Yarmuth discuss dark money, a term to describe campaign funds hidden from public scrutiny. Politically active nonprofits have become a major force in federal elections over the last three cycles, through the use of billions in undisclosed funds.

The term “dark money” is often applied to this category of political spender because these groups do NOT have to disclose the sources of their funding.

These organizations can receive unlimited corporate, individual, or union contributions that they do not have to make public, and though their political activity is supposed to be limited, the IRS – which has jurisdiction over these groups – by and large has done little to enforce those limits.

Partly as a result, spending by organizations that do not disclose their donors has increased from less than $5.2 million in 2006 to well over $300 million in the 2012 presidential cycle and more than $174 million in the 2014 midterms.

Rep. Yarmuth has spoken and acted on his concerns about this growing trend, which increased exponentially after the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on “Citizens United. In 2014, he sponsored, along with Rep. John Sarbanes (Democrat, Maryland) the Government By the People Act to get big money out of politics.

5:30 – 7:30 pm – A Matter of Balance: Introduction, at the Paul Sawyier Public Library, 319 Wapping Street

Many older adults experience concerns about falling, and some can even restrict their activities. A Matter of Balance is an 8-week, award-winning program designed to manage falls and increase activity levels. This series emphasizes practical strategies, and participants will learn how to view falls as controllable and make changes to reduce fall risks at home.

Classes will be held on Tuesday evenings, March 28-May 16, in the Library Community Room. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required. Please register at http://bit.ly/amatterofbalance or call the Library at 352-2665.

A Matter of Balance is sponsored by the Frankfort Senior Activity Center and PSPL. For more information, contact Anne Robbins at 502-223-5794 or Jennye Grider at jennye.grider@ky.gov.
