Good morning, I’m Todd Hatton.  It’s Sunday, October 21st.  This past week, WKMS News brought you the latest in our series of live candidate forums focusing on Kentucky’s 3rd District State House race.  Democratic candidate Gerald Watkins and Republican Jason Crockett discussed their respective approaches to dealing with the issues facing both the district and the Commonwealth at large.  And in case you missed it Friday, we’re bringing you a re-broadcast of the forum on today’s program.  Also, Kate Lochte speaks with one of the team who crafted Woodford Reserve and Angel’s Envy Bourbon, Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson.  Henderson is the featured guest at this year’s upcoming Distiller’s Dinner at the Carson Center in Paducah.  We’ll also hear about the endangered Kentucky barber shop as well as the Purchase birthplace of a Southern pastry icon.
