Bill Estep, Lexington Herald-Leader

This guest appears on the following programs:
Program 2825
4/19/02: In the special session on the state budget, public financing of the governor’s race is the big issue. Charlie Owen and Ben Chandler ponder a race for governor/lieutenant. And in the mountains, public corruption, politics, and drug dealing figure into the killings of a respected sheriff and a former sheriff who was trying for a comeback. Also, the state of the nation’s economy. (#2825)

Program 3337
7/13/07: The search must start again for a state education commissioner. Barbara Erwin says she’s not taking the job after all because of overwhelming scrutiny. Democrats in Frankfort say the governor’s special legislative session is over, but the finger-pointing isn’t. Odds favored expanded gambling as the top issue at the first Fletcher-Beshear debate, and it was. Kentucky rolled snake eyes on a $450 million bio lab because the site near Somerset was too rural. What does that mean for future high-tech development in rural Kentucky? And Dr. James Holsinger denies he has an anti-gay bias. He tells senators he will guard his independence if he becomes the new surgeon general. (#3337)

Program 3344
8/31/07: The last holiday of summer finds working folks at play, plus a touch of nostalgia for who we used to be. And, would casinos improve the tourist economy? And more liquor? Burnside thinks so. We also take a look at the governor’s race, Gov. Ernie Fletcher’s tours and Steve Beshear’s ethics. And in the legislature, Senate President David Williams is cleared on ethics while House Speaker Jody Richards expounds on energy incentives. (#3344)
