Kentucky House Speaker Greg Stumbo doesn't think this week's Republican victory in a special election is a sign of waning Democratic power in the chamber.

Republican Suzanne Miles bested Democratic challenger Kim Humphrey by about a hundred votes in a special election to fill a vacancy in West Kentucky’s 7th District.

Some Kentucky voters don't know if they can vote in the upcoming special election to replace 7th district State Rep. John Arnold because of new district boundaries.


Graves County Schools Superintendent Kim Harrison says budget cuts are likely to allocate funding for much-needed facility repairs at school sites.

Harrison's statement comes a day after a proposed 18 percent property tax increase failed in a county-wide special election. Harrison says the money was needed to qualify for a state matching grant.
