Lexington Under Air Quality Advisory

State officials Thursday issued an Air Quality Advisory for Lexington.
They say air quality has reached unhealthy levels, mainly due to high levels of fine particulates.
Officials say children, older adults, and people with heart and lung disease should not spend too much time outside.
They say the problem comes from a mix of urban air pollution and unseasonably dry conditions.

    Mark, why don't you run for Mayor, then we can hold your feet to the fire like you have done the past three Mayors. By the way that sure is a nice sign you have displayed on the right side of your house.

    Lexington needs about 200,000 more illegal aliens driving around to help clean up the air. The low skilled uneducated workers are such a blessing to the local economy, maybe if the congest our highways even more, they can help clean the air. Jim Newberry is working on getting more illegals here so no one need worry about a lack of illegal unlicensed drivers.
