Local governmental agencies don’t know how to treat the occupy protesters.

NPR reports Mayors across the country are trying to balance respect for the plight of protesters occupying public land and the greater welfare of their cities.

Kentucky~ KYTC wants to tell you about widening KY 68/80.  It looks like most people are avoiding the polls today.  A Kentucky native has been charged with espionage.  Romney wants some of that Kentucky green.

Illinois~ SIU: Teachers gotta eat too.

Tennessee~  Haslam tosses around the idea of school vouchers.

“The New Orleans Police Department has long battled a bad reputation. But after Hurricane Katrina, the dept’s flaws unraveled.”

~NPR hears how it’s not so easy to be the NOPD.

KENTUCKY~ A state audit criticizes McCracken’s Clerk policies. McCracken County and Paducah agree on paying for ‘pauper burials’. Paducah School students are eating more cafeteria food this year. MSU beats out most state schools on Forbes’ Top 500 list. Fort Campbell’s hospital is expanding in Clarksville’s. A 10-year-old Oak Grove child gets a felony for arson. UK may be forced to turn over participant’s names of a study on the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant (due out this fall). A bill that would stop executing the mentally ill faces many challenges. A newly signed federal act may impact (but remains totally unclear) food stamp programs. Beshear’s top aide resigns.

TENNESSEE~ Clarksville’s Mayor asks his Chief of Staff to resign (then fires him.)

ILLINOIS~ The next (epic) Honeywell and USW sitdown remains unscheduled.
