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.
