Ever since Rahm Emanuel won the legal right to be on the Chicago mayoral ballot, it was pretty much a given that he would win the plurality of votes when Election Day rolled around.

NPR reports Emanuel’s 55% share in yesterday’s vote means there will be no runoff election.

KENTUCKY~ A burning propane truck caused delays yesterday on McCracken County’s Cairo Road. Paducah aims for another land grab (in Lone Oak this time) and signs a new contract with their local firefighters union. A Murray murder trial gets postponed (again) and there’s a new Parks Director in town. UK’s presidential search is underway and who the candidates are will be kept a secret. The state gets its hands on lethal injection drugs. House members will soon vote on anti-bullying legislation and the Senate Budget Committee is looking at what to do about Medicaid. Gubernatorial hopeful Bobbie Holsclaw asks why the optometrist bill is clearing the legislature at such a rapid pace. Democrats intend to pay for a painting of Governor Beshear.

TENNESSEE~ Searchers pull the body of a missing Paris man from Kentucky Lake.
