Danielle Clore of the Kentucky Nonprofit Network says the groups were affected by the 2006 federal Pension and Protection Act." [WFPL]
  • "The Democratic judge executive of the state’s largest county says agriculture commissioner candidate Bob Farmer is no longer welcome in Pike County because of disparaging jokes Farmer made about Eastern Kentucky." [Bluegrass Politics]
