Oh, Kentucky

Here's Ed Kilgore in New York about former Gov. Beshear of Dawson Springs on President Trump before Congress. 

President Trump's team has an "Ah, Paducah" influence.

U.S. Rep. James Comer (R-Tompkinsville) was back home in the First Congressional District last week, where Comer said Trump fared better in the presidential voting than he did in all but three other districts nationally, and talked trade agreements, regulatory restrictions, healthcare and tax reform. Here's the thorough play by play from Larry Rowell in The Casey County News.

Good jobs news from London and Redox.

Remember that military vehicle flying the Trump flag on I-65 north of Fort Knox? It turned out to be a U.S. Navy SEALs unit, and Fernando Alfonso III reports in the Lexington Herald-Leader that they were punished.

He never rose above the rank of private, but people called him "Major"--interesting character profile from Chuck Keller in Fort Thomas Matters.

In the wake of discussion yesterday of Madisonville's population on First Podcast, there appeared at the "You know you're from Madisonville if ..." Facebook page a fantastic brochure on the city that appears to have been published in 1937:

A Muhlenberg County broadband provider is bringing his game to Corbin.

Here's a fine Q&A from Helen Gibson in the Talisman about how WKU became involved in UK's intramural legal flap about public records and sexual-misconduct claims.

Bardstown's Kentucky Standard says nay to HB 249: "Idaho’s guns on campus law, passed in 2014, is costing universities millions of dollars. According to an article in the Times-News out of Twin Falls, Idaho, in Feb. 2015, five schools — Boise State University, Idaho State University, the University of Idaho, the College of Western Idaho and North Idaho College — turned to the state for more than $3.7 million for personnel, training and equipment within the first year of the legislation passing."
