OVC Scores…

Kentucky~ Canaan gets OVC honors for a fourth time…he’s a bad man. A twister touched down in Hazel on Sunday. Former McCracken Judge-Executive gets that money. Madisonville Police ID remains. School bus ads die easy (sorry Bruce Willis). Lawmakers say the budget is tough, wow. Pharmacists say providers are screwing them.

Tennessee~ Beavers backpedals on bill.

Kentucky~ Some Paducah residents feel they aren’t as important as others. An accused stalker in Fort Campbell has charges dismissed. Paducah/McCracken County residents might be able to vote on a merger, but not yet.  Medicaid could be handled by private companies in the future. The state has issued grants to help farmers, and eradicate fat kids.

Tennessee~ Clarksville’s mayor says she doesn’t want any tax hikes. The state finance commissioner says the state state is doing well.
