Republicans made major gains in the midterm election, running vowing to “repeal and replace” the health law passed by Democrats earlier this year.

~NPR reports the health care industry (usually strong GOP allies) are a lot less enthused about the idea.

KENTUCKY~ Police: an (alleged) Paducah-area crack dealer jumps bail. Christian County High gets audited (because it’s on the state’s top 10 worst schools list). Transportation officials will install a left-turn traffic light. Local governments will pay more into retirement funds and the state is ordering health insurers to resume selling child-only policies.

TENNESSEE~ I-24 in Clarksville is sporting new signs pointing to the birthplace of Robert Penn Warren. A Clarksville juvenile escaped custody by jumping out of a moving van (while shackled) and city council members there passed a (1st reading) moratorium preserving a path for its proposed corridor between Fort Campbell and Governor’s Square Mall. Unemployment levels ‘stay the course.’ Higher-Ed officials recommend raising tuition 7%.

SPORTS~ APSU < Lipscomb; UTM < LSU.
