Officials Lift Several Water Shortage Watches & Warnings

For weeks we have finally seen above normal rainfall.

State officials have lifted water shortage watches and warnings for much of eastern Kentucky.

Only Letcher and Harlan Counties remain under a water shortage watch.

State water officials say those counties remain in extreme drought status.

They say overall, in most areas, streams are now at a normal level for this time of year and long range outlooks predict normal to above normal precipitation in the next three months.

    Normally it is the repubs with a wedge issue but this time the demos have stolen their way(repubs) of side stepping the real issue.That issue being health coverage for the faculity at our major universities. Voters, please read between the lines, as the gentleman said "the devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy" and water will be another issue our mtn politicans will try not too address.

    With enough water to go around the governor won't have that worry while he gets his casinos up and running....the devil doesn't hesitate and the gambling problems will soon be raising havoc in what used to be our "Home Sweet Home"...so we had better enjoy our water now because where this state is heading, there is no water!
