Jim Thorpe is arguably the greatest American athlete to ever live, and battle is ensuing over his long-buried remains.

NPR reports the body of Jim Thorpe is buried at the Carlisle Indian School, but some do not feel his gravesite receives the respect it deserves.

Kentucky~ Paducah has plans to for a new downtown hotel. An environmental group wants the Gov’s help with rare birds. Gov Beshear is in a place even hotter than here, Iraq. The Board of Education is reviewing an overhaul. The state has a new way to calculate graduation rates.

Illinois~ The Honeywell agreement is in (well that didn’t take very long).
