Oh, Kentucky

On this 12th day of Christmas 2017, Channel 6 is reporting that the Lone Oak Road Kmart is closing.

Good jobs news from Glasgow. Hiring in Auburn.

Here's how Logan County factors wind chill in determining whether to have school.

Three chiefs and two mass walkouts for the Munfordville VFD since July 2017, per WBKO.

The Lewis County Herald reports they're now set up to shelter in Vanceburg.

Mayor Greg Fischer on Kentucky (not Louisville) and its capital, according to WAVE3 NBC: "Kentucky's communities have critical needs in terms of education, health, social services and infrastructure. To meet them, Frankfort must broaden the tax base. That means we must reform an outdated system that exempts as much as it taxes. We need to take a hard look at a tax code that exempts luxury items. It doesn't make any sense to consider cuts that could impact your child's classroom, law enforcement, drug treatment or our justice system when we don't even tax country club memberships or limousines."

Looking ahead in Paducah and McCracken County--and maybe in Paducah/McCracken County.

Meanwhile, ahead in the new year for Barbourville, a dog park--and, hopefully, more jobs.
