  • Kentucky an environmentally adept leader

    When it comes to being “green,” Kentucky is taking a leading role in proving that, environmentally speaking, less is really more.

    Our recycling rate, for example, has doubled over the last decade, and in 2008, we passed the national average for the first time. Now, nearly a third of our recyclable materials – such things as aluminum, plastic, glass and paper – are being re-used rather than shipped off to the landfill. Altogether, it amounts to about two million tons annually that are being saved.

    Recently I have heard some rumblings about a contest to name the new version of the Milton-Madison Bridge.

    We’ve always called the current Milton-Madison Bridge the “Milton-Madison Bridge.”

    That is, unless you are a died-in-the-wool Indiana resident who hates anything blue and white or anything associated with Kentucky and the proliferation of Wildcat memorabilia everywhere. THOSE people insist on calling it the “Madison-Milton Bridge.”
