Oh, Kentucky

Per the Lexington Herald-Leader: "Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear said Monday that Kentuckians should do 'the Christian thing' and welcome all refugees who have cleared an extensive vetting process. But Beshear leaves office in three weeks. His Republican successor, Matt Bevin, said he will oppose the resettlement of Syrian refugees 'until we can better determine the full extent of any risks to our citizens.'"

And Elizabethtown's News-Enterprise: "When community members sitting in pews in the council chamber began to call out suggestions and comments, (Radcliff mayor Mike) Weaver said they were out of order and not part of the discussion. When similar comments resumed, Weaver called for Police Chief Jeff Cross. As Weaver began to point out an individual he wanted dismissed from the room, council members intervened by immediately making a motion to adjourn."

Lebanon's Gen. John Hunt Morgan statue is for sale.
