Kentucky State Parks Losing Millions

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - State Auditor Crit Luallen says Kentucky's
park system is losing millions of dollars despite large financial
investments on the part of taxpayers.

The losses total more than $30 million a year.

Luallen says the state should do more to market the parks to
generate more business in an effort to minimize the losses.

    Luallen is right. Our parks are beautiful and many have great facilites. They could be great vacations near home. Stay and in Kentucky and enjoy its beauty. Jenny Wiley needs a little work and it would be restored to the Jewel of Eastern Kentucky.

    State Parks charge to much for the rooms. Most State Park rooms are not as nice as other hotels.
