Program 2845
9/6/02: President Bush in Louisville, politics in the state Supreme Court, and water wars in Lexington. CBS digs for dirt back in the hills with so-called “real hillbillies” in Beverly Hills. Plus, an update on Lt. Gov. Steve Henry’s Medicare payments debacle. (#2845)

Program 3104

“Welcome to the third of three programs celebrating the 30th-anniversary month of Comment on Kentucky. We went on the air November 11, 1974, and here to help us celebrate this Thanksgiving weekend are David Hawpe, editorial director and vice president of the Courier-Journal; Sylvia L. Lovely, CEO and director of the Kentucky League of Cities and president of the New Cities Foundation; and Ernest Yanarella, Ph.D., author and professor of political science at the University of Kentucky.

“For this show, we want to take a look at what might be ahead for Kentucky for the next 30 years. ‘Thinking about the future is a prudent idea,’ a girlfriend of my wild youth once said (as she was becoming my ex-girlfriend), ‘because that’s where you’ll likely spend your time.’”

—Al Smith


Program 3307
12/15/06: Kentucky state Treasurer Jonathan Miller announces for governor, with Jefferson County attorney Irv Maze as his running mate. Former Lt. Gov. Steve Beshear says he’s ready for the top spot. Kentucky Sen. Johnny Ray Turner cops a reduced plea, and Congressman Ben Chandler gets a seat on the Appropriations and Revenue Committee. Gov. Fletcher reverses himself on vetoed funds for education. And the departure of state Rep. Gross Lindsay of Henderson and other House committee chairmen means contests for their seats. (#3307)
