morning cram [prop-19 edition]
The debate over California’s Prop-19, the initiative to legalize marijuana there, has cops and mothers supporting it but many stoners and growers oppose it.
~NPR reports Californians will vote November 2 on whether to allow local and state government to tax and regulate marijuana.
KENTUCKY~ Longtime Paducah Sun reporter Bill Bartleman is retiring (after 39 years of writing for the paper). A B-17 Flying Fortress will land in Paducah next week. KY-189 reopens this morning. Marshall County could startup a pet spay/neuter campaign. A Fort Campbell soldier dies in Afghanistan. Incumbent Senator Bob Leeper (i -2nd District) doesn’t like attack ads by democratic opponent Red Smith. Jack & Rand to debate on the KET airwaves tonight (and the NRA approves of both candidates).
TENNESSEE~ A former Montgomery County Executive is in critical condition after a weekend car wreck. Nashville jurors convict a western Kentucky fraudster duo (who told victims they were bringing a Disney theme park to the state).
OVC SPORTS~ (football) MSU > EIU, UTM > LU, APSU < JSU. (soccer) MSU< SEMO, MSU = EIU; UTM < EIU, UTM = SEMO; APSU > TTU.
