Oh, Kentucky

The Bardstown-Nelson County Ministerial Association is confronting the town's homelessness problem. And the fiscal court wonders about 911 with everybody ditching their land lines

Good jobs news from DanvilleKentucky is No. 1 among U.S. states in aluminum production capacity, and our rate of joblessness is lowest since May 2001But "the tone of racial intolerance being struck by the Herald-Leader has no place in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and will not be tolerated by our administration."

Meanwhile, from The Courier-Journal ("part of the USA Today network"): "I will say that we’ve received more support in the last week than at any other time in our 25-year history. A lot of people in our community do feel compassion for refugees."

And the Christian Science Monitor“I, for one, don't feel particularly comforted by the assertion that our government can vet these refugees.”

MSNBC: “To be honest with you, a lot of folks in Owsley County went to the polls and voted against gay marriage and abortion, and as a result, I’m afraid they voted away their health insurance.”
