Guest Rant: Columbia's lack of parity with Glasgow

THEIR (Glasgow, KY) intersection is visible from the International Space Station. Ours are not. CM Editorial comment Since it now looks like Governor Steve Beshear is certain of re-election, readers should contact his contact people to get something done. We don't know who's official: but they include Miss Victoria Pike, Mr. Junior Stotts, Mr. Richard L. Walker, Mr. Robert W. Flowers, and numerous others. Or we may just need to contact the Governor's Office Directly. Some quick attention - and studied action - is needed here. Those who still think David Williams or Gatewood Galbraith have a chance, please contact them and let us know what they would do. - ED WAGGENER for CM

CM Endorsed Guest Rant which also addresses Gasoline Price Inequity

In STARK constrast, there is a new intersection just this side of Glasgow where their new bybass joins the Cumberland Parkway and it is so brightly illuminated that it is probably visible from the International Space Station.

Some excuse was given as to why Columbia's new interchange (Exit 46) would not be furnished with lighting. Must have been because there were already homes nearby and businesses being developed...because the bright spot in the road near Glasgow is in the middle of nowhere in comparison.

While on my rant, I feel compelled to also point out that Tuesday evening Glasgow's gasoline price was 13 cents per gallon less than Columbia's.

I wish someone would "illuminate" the rest of us as to why it has to be this way.
