Gov. Beshear Allows Hemp Bill to become law

By Kerri Richardson and Terry Sebastian

FRANKFORT, KY - "I strongly support efforts to create additional legal cash crops for our farm communities. At the same time, we have a tremendous drug problem in Kentucky, and I want to make sure that we don't do anything that will increase that drug problem. I still share the same concerns our law enforcement officers have about the impact hemp cultivation may have on our drug eradication efforts.

The bottom line is that Senate Bill 50 won't allow industrial hemp to be grown or sold unless and until the federal government takes the very big step of legalizing the crop in some way. If that happens, we will have time to work with the legislature and law enforcement to make any further changes necessary to ensure the public's safety and alleviate those concerns. Therefore, I am allowing SB50 to become law without my signature." - Gov. Steve Beshear

There have been a couple of stories lately about people who have lost everything in house fires. Please post something to tell everyone that the Shepherd Shop keeps sets of household things for people to whom that has happened, as well as clothing, both free in such a situation. The Shepherd Shop is on Greensburg St. across from the schools, and across the church parking lot from Good Shepherd Church. (And if you're not burnt out, it's the best deal in town.) --Kathryn Krug

KY 206 was closed for a period last night; power knocked off

Related story: Accident on KY 206 takes life of 49 year old Columbia, KY woman

By Larry Smith, The WAVE, 92.7 FM

There may be some people in the Purdy/Little Cake area who oversleep this morning. Power was knocked out when a utility pole was hit by the car involved in the fatal accident which occurred around 7pmCT last night. Power went off for the Little Cake/Purdy area for several hours. When I tried to get to the Big Dawg, FM 99.9 FM transmitter at Little Cake, at around midnight, power was still off.

The Big Dawg was off the air until emergency generators were activated - and after a battery backup was installed in the main studio at 101 E Main, Campbellsville, KY.

The accident occurred near the Columbia/Adair County Utilities District Shepherd Water Tower. The Big Dawg is operating normally now. - Larry Smith

PS: Tell CM viewers to be careful on morning commutes. Fog is a factor, especially around Green River Lake. - - Larry SMith

(Ad) Sunshine, springtime, accelerates pace in CM Classifieds

Results coming Quicker than Ever: Sunshine is having a big effect on sales and listings throughout our streamlined classified listings. There's a marked - not a record, but a significant number - of new listings for Yard Sales.

There's greatly increased activity - maybe a record number of ads in Real Estate & Auctions with a wide variety of property, prices and financing options.

Listings are always needed - results and turnovers happen so Quick - in the fast moving category: Rentals. There were just two this morning. One property has been listed with a lease/buy option. (See, Home ownership IS possible when sellers help with innovative financing). The other ad is equally innovative: It's an opportunity to rent and operate a seasonal business with full time income potential - for the right person.

Fastest moving rental ads have used photos. Many photo ads are available for as little as $35 per month! They cost money, because they make you money. The ads cost a little more, but three recent rental photo ads filled vacancies in hours! That's a huge bargain in costs - but the bigger savings was the time involved. These landlords could get back to other activities almost immediately.

CM Classifieds. They simply work, incredibly well! Even we're surprised at just how effective, how Quick they make things happen!
