They’re s’posed to strike a match around noonish.

KY~ Paducah’s cool with Sunday alcohol sales at temporary events and may spend $1m on new vehicles. Police bust the (alleged) culprits who burgled Heath High and Middle Schools. MSU procrastinates on the domestic partner debate. Expect delays on I-24 near Paducah today. Christian County’s Emergency Manager is retiring and their health department hopes to construct a $2.5m annex. We’ll find out today who will oversee elections since Sec ‘o State Trey is in the running. Beshear will call the General Assembly back when he darn well feels like it.

TN~ Montgomery County Schools will request a property tax hike. Henry County nabs over $1m in Race to the Top funds. A proposed law that would close access to a list of who can carry loaded handguns has (probably) failed. The Senate is about to vote on a bill that admittedly does nothing>25 MPH speeders could face $500 tickets.

IL~ African-American students may be more likely to be suspended/expelled than whites.

OVC SPORTS~ (Baseball) MSU < OleMiss, APSU > Vandy; (Softball) UTM > EU.

a series of tubes

KY~ MSU benefits could soon be fair (to homosexuals). While Gun-wielding robbers roam the streets of Paducah, non-profits beg for money and Zumwalt makes off like a bandit. Hopkinsville plans to improve its parks system. A Veteran’s Center is renamed for Madisonville Rep. Eddie Ballard. Prosecutors are going for the death penalty in the case against former lawmaker Steve Nunn. Miner’s union backs Galbraith for Governor. House Majority Whip Stacy hopes the general assembly will pass a budget.

TN~ Clarksville’s Trane plant rehires 92 workers. Police: 17-year-old started the Kmart fire (and the store has re-opened).

SPORTS~ Baseball: MSU < WKU, UTM > ASU, APSU > UM. MSU Men’s golf team wins the Big Blue Invitational.
