    Recently, states and communities have started to ban “saggy pants,” requiring those with their pants too low to pay a fine for indecency. The latest city to support the ban is Pikeville, Tennessee. If residents are caught sagging, they will be charged a $25 fine. The ban has raised questions over whether or not the government has the right to institute laws that regulate someone’s fashion choices. There are also doubts as to whether police will take the time to enforce the law. “All I know is we just don’t want them running around half-naked on our streets,” Pikeville Mayor...

    FRANKFORT - For the first time in the state hiring inquiry, investigators moved into Lt. Gov. Steve Pence's office as they served a search warrant on his chief of staff. Attorney general's office investigators removed a computer from Stephen Huffman's office this morning. At the same time, Transportation Cabinet personnel employee Missy McCray went before the special grand jury investigating the hiring practices of Gov. Ernie Fletcher's administration. McCray also testified last summer, just before several transportation officials were indicted for violating state merit laws, which say rank-and-file state workers must be hired based on qualifications, not politics. McCray later...

    PIKEVILLE — Folks in this eastern Kentucky town are demanding an apology from the A&E network after an episode of “City Confidential” that they say was unflattering and unfair. “Obviously, being labeled the town from hell can not be interpreted in any way as positive,” City Manager Donovan Blackburn wrote in a letter to network. Blackburn said local residents cooperated in the production of the documentary show, which revolved around murders committed by a group of occultists, after a producer told them the town would be portrayed positively. A&E had no immediate response to the complaint. A network spokeswoman said...

Ernie Fletcher, responded in an interview yesterday that he will "do everything we can to get that done as quickly as we can" but said Chandler is "reaching awful far on a lot of campaign promises."</p>

    PIKEVILLE - A Sept. 11 memorial ceremony has turned into a public political fray, with one camp demanding that a singing judge not be allowed to perform on stage in the Pikeville City Park. In a terse letter Friday, Pike district judge candidate John Doug Hays said allowing incumbent judge Darrel Mullins to sing in front of the crowd politicizes what should be a solemn event. He asked that Mullins, a popular local singer and musician, be removed from the program. The fallout from Hays' letter was immediate. Glendia Sawyers, manager of the Pikeville Main Street Program, resigned from the...
