HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

KY~ An empty barge tow smacked the Cairo Bridge. Lake Barkley is slowly draining. Paducah’s Police Chief wants mounties. That’s no salesman… It’s a census worker! Former Senator Wendell Ford likes Jack. Rand is not a huge fan of Mitch. Not only does Kentucky (so far) not have a budget, but it took a $45mil hit in tax revenue.

TN~ Flooding has crippled much of Montgomery County’s farmland.The Clarksville city workers will pick up your trash if you stack it by the road. Democrats worry Republicans are eying the state worker bonus. The Senate passes voter citizenship check. The DUI-ignition lock bill is on Bredesen’s desk.

Sweet.

KY~ Paducah Police want to know who robbed the Waffle Hut. Paducah’s Waterway Innovations gets $150k to develop barge monitoring technology. A survey gauging opinions on a Murray payroll tax is circulating through the business community. That lady who (allegedly) shot at her husband in a Mayfield Lowe’s now has a jury of her peers. The general manager of WKDZ-FM (Cadiz) is one of the Commonwealth’s leading ladies. Unemployment rises (10.9%). The House puts off an official discussion on a Capitol gun ban. One Senate committee adds an eminent domain clause to the stalled nuclear bill and another is confused about instant racing.
