The bill would impose a financial barrier to an "of right" appeal guaranteed by the Kentucky Constitution, and would prevent meritorious appeals by individuals and groups that lack the financial wherewithal to post such a bond.

  • KRC Comments On EPA Proposal to Delegate Authority For Oil and Gas-Related Injection Well Regulation to Kentucky   Posted: December 9, 2016
    Click the headline to read KRC's comments concerning the EPA proposal to grant "primacy" to Kentucky for permitting and regulation of wells drilled or converted for injection of oil and gas-related wastewaters and produced waters for secondary oil recovery or disposal. KRC is concerned that the state regulations do not provide as rigorous a review process nor provide as much opportunity for public input as do the federal regulations, and is also concerned that Kentucky have sufficient staff to permit and inspection such wells.
  • Remembering Patty Wallace  Posted: November 21, 2016
    Over the weekend the Council received word that long-time social and environmental justice advocate Patty Wallace, had died. KRC Board Chair Joe Childers reflected on Patty's tenacity and courage in noting that "Patty Wallace and Ruth Colvin were fearless in travelling to Frankfort to lobby for environmental protection. They would make their weekly trips, getting up very early to drive from Louisa to Frankfort, and came to be known as 'Thelma and Louise' for the environment and rights of coalfield citizens. Patty had a wonderful way of cutting to the chase. She would simply not take no for an answer and every legislator knew her by name. She was truly a giant among advocates for environmental justice." Marian Wright Edelman penned a prayer in her book "Guide My Feet" that said "let me be a worker, not a whiner; let me not be a critic, but a catalyst for good." Patty was such a catalyst, patterning love and integrity and demanding accountability from those in power. We are so much the better as a Commonwealth, and as a community, for her life's work. Rest in peace, Patty. To paraphrase Timothy, you have fought the good fight, you have finished the race, and you have kept the faith.

  • Remembering Bonnie Biemer  Posted: July 28, 2017
    Fitz and the KRC Board and staff join with the Biemer family and the Louisville community in mourning the passing and celebrating the life of Bonnie Biemer, who died on July 16, 2017 at age 77. After years as a reporter, Bonnie became a lawyer, and joined the City of Louisville law department. She became the city's administrator for health and the environment, and was instrumental in the multi-year negotiations that preceded the enactment of Kentucky's Brownfields law, which assists in reclamation of polluted abandoned industrial sites for redevelopment. She also served on the Air Pollution Control Board for more than a decade after her 2005 retirement. Art Williams and Noel Rueff both worked with Bonnie over the years, and shared these remembrances: "We knew Bonnie for many years in many roles but her character and approach to life and to people and to problems was as consistent and true as the northern star. She was unfailingly kind. She was unflinchingly courteous and she endeavored as resolutely as anyone we have known to live all aspects of her life, personal and professional, directed by the values and beliefs of her faith. She had a heart as soft as putty but a spine as hard as titanium. She was slow to judge and always demanded as many facts as the situation allowed. She was a believer in the proposition put forth by Howard Baker, Jr. the ever-civil late US Senator from Tennessee that "the other fellow just might be right." Bonnie was a great listener. We never saw her interrupt anyone during a conversation of any type- whether at leisure such as at Lakeside swim club or around a negotiating session about a brownfield cleanup. Bonnie's approach to life was thus effective and strong though subtle and low key. This earned her much respect and admiration from her friends- and others- who fell woefully short of the standards she set and kept. And thus she earned a legacy to honor and remember." We will remember Bonnie, and in her memory and in honor of her husband Marty and children Daniel and Ellen, we at the Council rededicate ourselves to the unfinished work of restoring environmental health and justice - the work to which Bonnie unselfishly and effectively dedicated her career.

  • Irony Abounds! Energy and Environment Cabinet Stresses Importance Of Protecting Groundwater, While Advancing Regulations To Gut Permitting Of Coal Combustion Ash Landfills   Posted: March 8, 2017
    On the same day that the Cabinet's Coal Combustion Residual Regulations cleared the first legislative committee hurdle, the Cabinet announced the beginning of "groundwater awareness week." According to the press release, the Director of the Division of Water noted that "the groundwater of Kentucky is an important natural resource and should be protected year around. Groundwater is used extensively in Kentucky for drinking water and irrigation as well as by industry, and it is imperative that the groundwater be protected for current users and future generations[.]" Maybe the Cabinet could start respecting the need for groundwater protection by withdrawing the regulations that gut the current permitting process and eliminate agency review of critical aspects of utility coal ash landfill design and construction, like the design of groundwater monitoring systems.

  • The Very Definition of Chutzpah  Posted: October 10, 2016
    Chutzpah is defined as "shameless audacity" or "impudence." A 1936 statement by a coal operator and mining engineer regarding the damage to the Ohio River basin from acid mine drainage is the very essence of chutzpah. "There is no doubt," wrote the coal operator, "that this (AMD) is detrimental to the fish life, and the coal industry recognizes the fact that such drainage not only impairs the appearance of streams but also renders them unfit for human or animal use. It should be remembered, however, that the presence of such acid mine water in streams helps to neutralize the sewage which is discharged into so many of our streams, which would be a greater nuisance than it is now if it were not for this acid water." Some things never change....

  • Remembering Mary Carol Cooper  Posted: May 19, 2016
    Baba Ram Dass once reflected that “we are all just walking each other home.” We at the Council joined thousands of others in mourning the sudden passing of Mary Carol Cooper, a long-time environmental activist with the Bluegrass Group of the Sierra Club. I asked our friend and colleague Lane Boldman, now the able Director of the Kentucky Conservation Committee and formerly an officer in both the Kentucky and National Sierra Club, to share some thoughts on "walking the path" with Mary Carol. Here’s what she wrote: “I first met Mary Carol Cooper when I became involved in outings through the Bluegrass Group of the Sierra Club. After being on many hikes with new-found friends in the late ‘90s, I found myself perched on a rock at Double Arch in the Red River Gorge with Mary Carol Cooper and others. Mary Carol was the coordinator for Outings, and she was preparing for publishing the Cumberland Chapter Outings Book. I had been hiking with all of these wonderful new friends for several months, and wanted to find a way to contribute, so I offered to help with the book, since I had been working in publishing at the time. Soon after, canoe season started. I was introduced to the world along the banks of the Licking River, at the Wiglesworth farm. Mary Carol Cooper ran many canoe outings along the Licking, most notably her “Gourmet Canoe Trips” where paddlers meandered along the currents for a day in the sun, ending with an evening where folks contributed to a gourmet pot luck, wine, and warm glows. This was not my idea of what “roughing it” was all about. I was hooked. Her trips were not just adventures. Her trips made me feel part of a family. I went on the gourmet canoe trips for many years until the extreme August heat became too much and Mary Carol ‘retired’ that particular outing. Over the years, I participated in many more of her adventures. I particularly looked forward to our annual “Wild Women’s Weekend”, where a dozen of us packed our packs in search of winter hikes, a warm primitive cabin, culinary delights, gossip, card playing, rocking chairs, and a couple decades of memories. It was there during one of those outings where I told my girlfriends I had become engaged to my husband, and Mary Carol immediately asked if she could be the flower girl at the wedding, because “I’ve never gotten to be a flower girl before.” Who could refuse? I could always appreciate that when Mary Carol was on a hike, particularly in the spring, I would never have to worry about being left behind in the shadow of faster hikers. I could always count on Mary Carol taking the time to slow down, stop for flowers, puzzle over ferns and marvel over lichen, teaching the other participants on how to identify each one along the way. Teaching was her greatest strength. Ever the steady hand, Mary Carol performed just about every volunteer job one could think of in her Sierra Club work. Outings chair, Secretary, Biodiversity Chair, Fundraising Chair…she was the one person who never stepped in to the world of personal politics and conflict. Everyone loved Mary Carol. That is why her sudden departure created such a chasm. During our last Wild Women’s Weekend, she was just as warm and loving as always. I was greeted with hugs as though we had not seen each other for ages, although it had only been a few weeks. We are so fortunate to have people like Mary Carol in our lives, because they are what makes the path worth traveling." Thank you for sharing these thoughts from the heart, Lane. Godspeed on your journey home, Mary Carol. You have been a “catalyst for good” and we are better for having known you.
