    That's a pretty good bust, considering there are about 28 grams in an ounce with a price of 75-90/gram. They took out 224 grams of crack, value around $20,000. Not a bad day for the Georgetown cops at all!

    I feel we need a 3rd Canidate to run for governor of Kentucky that has a new View of the people here in Kentucky. I feel that we should have a recall election admiment placed on the slate to see what Kentuckyians feel about our Candidates say about that I also feel that Kentuckyians are over looked in what we want and need and that I hope the best for our state and that i also feel we all should band together and take our state back and lets let Kentuckyians deside what happens in our state.
