Oh, Kentucky

The Kentucky desk is pleased to announce that, with Gov. Bevin's (indirect) blessing, we have resumed considering recommendations for the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels.

Emmanuel Felton with The Hechinger Report delivers a very thought-provoking story on how Kentucky has adjusted its systems on the premise that NOT all students need college.

Meanwhile, in a personally-heartbreaking-for-me (but well-done) report in The New York Times, Stephanie Saul reports on how Western Kentucky University decided that it did NOT need all of the Indian students that it recruited.

Draffenville's Ponderosa baroness is spreading her game to Reidland.

Kroger is putting a Ruler Foods in the old Russellville Houchens.

OK, updating previous reports, it appears now that Uncle Lee's is, indeed, back to operating in Greenville but that it is now all or almost all guns. And now Coal County Vendor Mall is set to open in the rest of the old store that apparently isn't totally being used by Uncle's Lee's ("Powered by: Budsgunshop.com"). Will advise as events warrant.

Hopkinsville appears headed toward raising taxes on home and vehicle insurance premiums by 33 percent to pay for a new sports complex and trails expansion.

Jeannie C. Riley is NOT on the Western Kentucky State Fair docket, but a demolition derby, tractor pulls and wrestling are.

Paducah's Fin Gourmet entrepreneurial success story just keeps building: "We put Kentucky proud fish products onto American tables. We solve the problems that many Americans have very few options to healthy, year round, wild-caught USA fish products. We solve this problem by sustainably sourcing and manufacturing locally caught fish into delicious, healthy, ready-to-eat fish products. Our fish are fresh daily. We hand-select and hand-craft our products. We are committed to preserving the quality of homemade goodness: fresh, natural, and always free of chemicals and preservatives."

Turning to sports, our McCracken County Mustangs football coach is NOT going back to Georgia; here's the program for the KHSAA baseball tournament, which starts Thursday in Lexington, and the Louisville International Open women's tennis tournament is NOT happening this year.
