It's hard to imagine an institution more important to many Franklin Countians than the Kentucky Retirement Systems. The KRS board makes decisions that affect thousands of residents. One would think that the State-Journal would attend each quarterly KRS board meeting and report on what happened.
At Thursday's meeting, the board discussed the future of the cost of living adjustment, adopted a new staff trading policy, hired an accounting firm to conduct an external audit, and briefly discussed the controversial Arrowhawk hedge fund failure. It also held an hour-long closed session to discuss legal matters, after which it held three votes.
It's a shame the S-J can't provide basic newsgathering for its readers.
