Oh, Kentucky

Let's play. Everyone. Even with the thunderstorms. In Madisonville, as of this week.

Kentucky Council of Churches, "Re-claiming Jesus," in Morehead come October.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers put on a community meeting in Loyall to talk about flow issues at the local lagoon, and the resulting Harlan Enterprise staff report is just chock-full of interesting phrases: "top priority," "design flaw," "right of entry," "whether or not equipment would be parked on properties," "drilling for core samples," "attract copperheads to den and feed in the area," "weren’t in favor of signing and left the meeting without doing so" and "did not yet have a formal plan to fix the problems," among them.

"I feel it's like a time capsule that we just opened up." Nice Jeremy D. Wells feature in the Grayson Journal-Enquirer on an intriguing discovery at an old U.S. 60 truck stop in Globe.

"This industry is new — there’s some growing pains along the way, but we’ll get there." Interesting dispatch from the Owensboro front of the fledgling industrial-hemp game, from Katie Pickens in The Owensboro Times.

WPSD's Shamarria Morrison with a crisp, clear anchoring of a good, thorough story with a lot of moving pieces: "The National Fire Protection Association says Paducah needs 62 firefighters. The city has a budget for 59. (Paducah fire chief Steve) Kyle said the department currently employs 54."

No. 1 for purchasing power among Kentucky's 120 counties? Oldham. For cost of living? Owsley. For median income? Back to Oldham. So says SmartAsset, "a financial technology company aiming to provide the best personal finance advice on the web."

Kentucky's safest city? Vine Grove, says Safewise, "a resource for safety and security issues."

And the safest college? University of the Cumberlands, per "a new report released by safety experts at Your Local Security."

Hiring in Ledbetter (to operate the water and sewer systems).
