“Remember Y2K? That’s beginning to seem like a long time ago, now. Morning Edition takes some time to remember how much has happened since the turn of the century.”

NPR gives us the decade in sound bites.

KENTUCKY ~ It’s New Year’s resolution time. Soldiers come home to Fort Campbell, one honored for a medal. Hopkinsville spends over $2 mil on greenspace, and immigration is the hot button issue in the 2011 session.

TENNESSEE ~ Woman runs into attempted robber at hospital. TVA blows its own horn.

ILLINOIS ~ New rules: campaign contributions limited for the first time, and some mobile home owners will have to pay more taxes.

Yeah… So most of our staff won decently prestigious journalistic honors yesterday.

KY~ That confounded boat is still rankling the Reidland-Farley Fire Dept. A DUI hit and run kills a Guthrie man (on a farm tractor). An antique store owner in Hazel refiles his lawsuit against the city. A new leader emerges at the helm of Todd County’s Health Department! A Bowling Green judge sides with Expedia/Travelocity. After sinking a quarter-mil into an unsuccessful senate bid, Bill Johnson may try for governor. Sec-O-State Tray Grayson has a sizable (campaign fund) package.

TN~ House passes bill extending prison time for armed robbery.

IL~ Police are searching for an armed sex criminal.
