State Cancels Group's Adopt-A-Highway Deal

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is planning to cancel a pro-segregation group's contract to participate in a state litter cleanup program.

Transportation Cabinet spokesman Chuck Wolfe says the National
Alliance has been found to be discriminatory. Wolfe says the group's contract to be in the "Adopt-A-Highway" program will have 15 days from the date of the letter before it's ended.

Wolfe says the cabinet was unaware of the group's beliefs when it was accepted into the program in September 2007.

Cincinnati coordinator of the National Alliance Robert Ransdell says the signs have been up for more than a year without any problem. Ransdell says the group is not a hate group and believes the state is itself being discriminatory.
