Oh, Kentucky

"He would call me late in the night from somewhere on the road, a ghost town in Texas, a rest stop near Pittsburgh, or from Santa Fe, where he was parked in the desert, listening to the coyotes howling. But most often he would call from his place in Kentucky, on a cold, still night, when one could hear the stars breathing ..."

Questions and answers with Paducah's mayor.

Fear and accusations from Kentucky's governor.

Coming off his 29th western Kentucky town hall, U.S. Rep. James Comer rolls on to Princeton today and Clinton tomorrow.

An ad maker for President Obama's 2008 and 2012 campaigns has created a spot introducing a retired Marine lieutenant colonel and Democratic challenger to U.S. Rep. Andy Barr, described as Sen. Mitch McConnell's "hand-picked congressman." 

Todd County's fiscal court has ordered all landings and takeoffs at the local airport stop, but that hasn't happened and the airport board has lawyered up. The judge-executive says it has to do with reducing liability on the county, but the airport people apparently think the judge-executive is just mad about a mower. WHOP has an excellent report from Monday's meeting in Elkton. 

Pat McDonough of The Courier-Journal takes his notebook and camera to Tompkinsville and checks in on some of the best marbles players in the world, at the Monroe County Marble Club Super Dome.

What's it like back home for one of these superstar prospects who leave the local high school and transfer to some out-of-state prep school to prepare for the next level? Kevin Patton of Henderson's Gleaner gets the perspective from Union County's KHSAA- and national-champion wrestler at 106 pounds, Zeke Escalera, in the last days before he moves on to Pennsylvania's Wyoming Seminary.

Rest in peace, Mr. Hanor, American Towman Award winner, owner/operator of body shops in Clay and Henderson, Clay city councilperson, ex-commissioner of Clay ABA Basketball, husband of 18 years and father of three.
