After more than a year of campaign ads bombarding the airwaves and the candidates jockeying for votes, the latest WKYT Herald-Leader Bluegrass Poll finds Kentucky voters set to re-elect Sen. Mitch McConnell to a sixth term rather than punish the nation’s top Republican by sending Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes to Washington.
A month-long WKYT investigation discovered five high schools in central, southern and eastern Kentucky with football helmets deemed less than “good” by a rating system to denote their ability to reduce the risk of concussions.
How safe are the helmets worn by Kentucky high school football players? WKYT contacted every school system in the viewing area to find out and then got reaction from the KHSAA.
Arctic air brings the chance for early season snows to the bluegrass state.
