David Williams
  • "Republican David Williams tried to stir support on Tuesday by criticizing Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear for taking part in a Hindu “ground blessing” ceremony last week for a new India-based employer in Elizabethtown. 'He’s there participating with Hindu priests, participating in a religious ceremony,;' Williams said during a campaign stop in Shelbyville. 'He’s sitting down there with his legs crossed, participating in Hindu prayers with a dot on his forehead with incense burning around him. I don’t know what the man was thinking.' Beshear’s campaign spokesman called Williams’ remarks 'pathetic and desperate.'" [Bluegrass Politics]
  • "WFPL News Director Gabe Bullard spent a few minutes talking with Rebecca Mercer, manager of Ear X-Tacy, about the specific reasons behind the decision to permanently close the respected local institution, why it happened the way it did, and what it means for regional bands, concert promoters, and music shoppers."
