  • "A state legislator has proposed a bill that would require random drug testing for adults who get food stamps, Medicaid or other state assistance.Under the bill filed by Republican Rep. Lonnie Napier of Lancaster, those who fail the drug test would lose their benefits. They could get it back by passing a drug test at a later date determined by the state." [Courier-Journal]
  • "Vision Airlines will add non-stop service from Louisville International Airport to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International and Northwest Florida Regional — which serves Destin and Fort Walton Beach — beginning March 25." [Courier-Journal]
  • "Mayor Greg Fischer recently released his 'Citizen's Bill of Rights.' It is published on the city's website for your convenience. The Bill of Rights is loaded with 'corporate-speak' and double-talking jive. It is surely corrupt communication. It is my opinion citizens are not 'customers' and should not be treated as such. They are the "owners.'" [The Valley Report]
