  • Will Kentucky voters be shut out?

    As I drove down Bardstown Road, a large yard sign caught my eye the other day - "Yes We Can" it touted in big red and blue letters. Beside it another sign - Barack Obama '08.

    The bad thing is that by the time this poor person gets to vote in Kentucky's late May Primary, the decision for the Democratic and Republican party's contenders for the White House will likely already be decided.

  • Three district champs fall at girls' region
