By Angela Hatton
Murray, KY – The air in the Land Between the Lakes and to its south-east is a bit smoky today. The Calloway County Sheriff's Department confirms that due to windy conditions, smoke from the National Forest Service's controlled burns is circulating throughout the Calloway County area.
