A Mayfield man is arrested in McCracken County for a DUI hit and run. The Paducah Sun has it that an Oklahoma city administrator will likely be Paducah’s new city manager. Paducah city commissioners will vote next week to keep property taxes the same. If given the shot, Rand Paul would kill the IRS and the federal income tax.

TENNESSEE~ Murder, kidnapping & suicide in Clarksville (Oh my!). State sales tax revenue grew again last month. Early voting begins.
