1/19/07: Can a Republican woman from Louisville defeat an incumbent from Lexington and another challenger from Paducah in a primary race for governor?

And if this is Anne Northup’s week to make the news, will Speaker Jody Richards make the headlines next week? (#3312)

What will the candidates do? Do they know? And last, we discuss shock jock Don Imus and the idiocy of ridiculing race and gender—but what about the role of rap here?

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)

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)

8/17/07: Gov. Ernie Fletcher’s ethics: He signed a deal admitting mistakes and indictments were dropped; this week an ethics panel gives him a pass. More giving: The legislature is closing an incentive package in the millions of dollars for Peabody Coal. But The Wall Street Journal says this is part of the worst corporate welfare scheme in U.S. history. The farm economy: Kentucky smothers in drought, but farmers at the state fair worry about more than weather, such as the unfinished Farm Bill in Congress, energy, trade, and immigration issues. And, do burley growers still need a co-op? (#3342)

And, more about the law: Those fen-phen attorneys are jailed for sticky fingers; Shane Ragland pleads guilty to murdering a student and walks free; and there are three nominees for the Kentucky Supreme Court. And we look at questions about Gov. Ernie Fletcher’s friends in higher education: Is it stacked against the Democrats? Will a business buddy be the next chairman at the University of Kentucky?

Fletcher’s insurance commissioner digs into the closet for old files on Kentucky Central, and, maybe, a bad on Steve Beshear. And, two Republican legislators change parties. We also discuss two school stories: A woman is named chairman of the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees; and is No Child Left Behind a flawed law? Plus, we talk about Sen. Mitch McConnell’s war critics at home and speculation over a zillionaire opponent. (#3346)

Program 3352
10/26/07: Gov. Ernie Fletcher finds his record to talk about—and some of it is good. Why didn’t he say so sooner? Steve Beshear finds another gain in the polls. With less than two weeks to go, it’s rope-a-dope until Election Day. Sen. Mitch McConnell finds votes to kill add-ons to SCHIP (State Children’s Health Insurance Program). Some of those poor kids are not, he says, and besides, it’s socialized medicine. Urban scenes: We discuss a new look for Louisville and a new arena for Lexington. And, we discuss how our schools look with education champion Robert Sexton of the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence. (#3352)
