Dust, vibration from imploding 28 stories. How will people, pets be safe?

With less than a month to go before the 28-story Capital Plaza Tower is to be demolished in downtown Frankfort, the state has started to answer questions about special safety measures locals must take on implosion day. On Friday, the Finance and Administration Cabinet issued the first of what it says will be a series of compiled questions and answers leading up to the tower’s implosion on Sunday, March 11, at 1:30 p.m.

'Make sure our children go to school in peace and security'

Shane Romines posted a Facebook video Friday pledging money for metal detectors in Corbin schools and challenging other community leaders to step up and similarly help defray expenses for smoke detectors in school districts. Romines and his firm, Copeland & Romines, promised $25,000 with a fraction of that money going to whatever expense the school system preferred - Tasers or firearms with appropriate training for staff. Since he posted that initial video he's offered more updates on the drive on the firm's Facebook page as others have stepped forward with interest or pledges for spreading the effort to other counties.
