Reagan Memorial

In lieu of sending flowers, former first lady Nancy Reagan has requested that people make memorial contributions to the Ronald Reagan Memorial Fund.

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library Foundation
40 Presidential Drive
Simi Valley, CA 93065.

It should also be pointed out that Lexington has an active Alzheimers Association chapter, and a local contribution to a relevant local organization could be a fitting memorial for those inclined to honor the former president with a contribution.
Also, all state offices will be closed Friday to honor Reagan.

Back on the Bus

Come this November, Fayette residents will have a chance to vote on the future of Lextran.

The Urban County Council approved a first vote for referendum to be scheduled on the Fall ballot.

The referendum would cause property taxes to jump 8 cents for every $100 of assessed value. On average, the cost to the taxpayer would be $10 a month. That would generate about $14.5 million for Lextran

The referendum has to pass two more council votes before being placed on the November ballot.
