Tom Eblen, Lexington Herald-Leader

This guest appears on the following programs:
Program 3111
1/14/05: A ruling on the disputed Senate seat in the 37th senatorial district in Jefferson County: A judge blocks Stephenson from serving as senator. Homeland security concerns in the heart of Kentucky: The Pentagon stalls on nerve gas project. And a tale of two cities: a water fight in Lexington and Louisville aldermen’s struggle over leadership. (#3111)

Program 3230
5/26/06: Five more miners are killed, pointing up conflicts with coal—pressures to produce more for energy, but also a pause for safety. (#3230)

Program 3302
11/10/06: Democrats come home in Louisville, where Yarmuth defeats Northup. In this state, as elsewhere, Iraq was an issue and a down grade on Bush. But other Republicans hold on. U.S. Sen. McConnell won’t be majority leader, and U.S. Rep. Hal Rogers loses juice. Congressman Ben Chandler likes Washington even more, but Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson and former Gov. Brereton Jones better decide about running for governor soon. (#3302)

Program 3310
1/5/07: A shakeup in the legislature brings new faces. Issues this short session include the vetoed projects—they’re back. Who’s on board in the governor’s race? Show me the money. In Western Kentucky, corn and coal are top dollar. And oh yes, another shakeup: The burley co-op dumps leader Danny McKinney. (#3310)

Program 3341
8/10/07: A Kentucky footnote on the financial markets: We take a look at older folks and 401(k)s. Health care for poor kids: Congress wants more, but Sen. Mitch McConnell and President Bush fight the plan. An ouster and change of leaders at the State Board of Education: Is this fresh vision or political pressures? The same in higher education: Who is really running things? In business, we discuss Lexmark’s troubles, a union drive at Toyota, and new directions for East Kentucky Power. And, Big Coal: We look at a hangup over the special session for a legislative kiss-up to Peabody Energy plus a circuit court kiss-off for Peabody. How does our state play the game of energy and the environment? Go tell it to the mountains. (#3341)

program 3513
1.30.09: The Governor and legislative leaders work on the budget. What will Kentucky get from the President’s stimulus package? A record breaking gift for U of L. Looking ahead by looking back. And, everyone’s talking about the weather and we will too. Scheduled guests: Stephenie Steitzer, Frankfort reporter for The Courier-Journal; Tom Eblen, columnist with the Lexington Herald-Leader; and Greg Stotelmyer, political reporter for WTVQ-TV, Channel 36 in Lexington.
