Back in the 1890’s, Pearl Bryan was brutally murdered in one of the more grisly, yet fascinating, crimes in Kentucky history. That story is now recounted by author James McDonald in his book The Perils of Pearl Bryan, and he’s on the phone Lee Hay to discuss this story.
State Rep. Sannie Overly has filed a bill that will allow the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to explore public-private partnerships to help construction projects with big price tags.
The bill doesn't specifically name any projects, but Kentucky currently has multiple instances where the bill could help work start, namely the Brent Spence Bridge in Northern Kentucky and Interstate 69 in western Kentucky.
Overly, a Paris Democrat, said the goal is to help the state have one more avenue to help fund its infrastructure projects.
