According to the article, foreclosure rates nationally increased by 30%, which brings the total to more than double what they were a year ago. On the other end of the spectrum, Kentucky real estate foreclosures only increased by 3.5% putting Kentucky below the national average, and 36th overall for the 3rd quarter 2007, and is actually a decrease of 0.2% from the previous year’s 3rd quarter in 2006.

Nationally, in the 3rd…

Employers that disregard procedure and laws, could be fined anywhere…

His current thought is to allow landlocked farms to be given up to the current owners’ adult children in as many as 3 tracts of property. In concept, this would allow the adult children to help their parents maintain their farm and keep things as an asset for the community.
But, this idea has drawn sharp criticism from many – including other magistrates. Current estimates put the number of farms affected by being landlocked as high as 1500. This would potentially mean that up to 4500 new homes would be able to be built on those new…
