Olympic torch to pass through Kentucky

Forty-five Kentuckians will share in carrying the Olympic torch through Kentucky in December. According to Jan Brucato, president and CEO of the YMCA of Central Kentucky, “the goal was to select unsung, everyday heroes who enrich our lives and make Central Kentucky a great place to live.” The torch will blaze through Lexington in December. The flame festivities will occur on December 17th, 2001 as the torch is carried on a ten mile trip through downtown. These festivities do not include bumming a light from, racing, offering bourbon to, or starting a fight with the torch bearer(s). -JG
