In preparation of our impending move, I am interested in reading up on local politics, activities, and culture...especially the politics. I like getting the skinny on what's REALLY going on in the state legislature and with the politicoes closer to home. So, where do people get the dirt?

I'm also interested in good references and/or 'zines for regional gardening - (native plants, fruits and veggies), outdoor activities (hiking, camping, birding, canoeing...), music (concerts, festivals...), and horsey events (shows, events, rides, Pony Club, polo...)...and anything else that folks generally find interesting to read about Kentucky.

Oh, my goodness. You are moving to Kentucky and like politics? You have just made a decision that will mean Heaven on Earth for you. From the Mountains to the Mississippi, politics in this state are a daily story that will make all those weekday tv soap operas seem tame. From the current very small minded Attorney General from Prestonsburg, to the late great Vice-President Alben Barkley from Paducah, there are politics on every corner, small town coffee shop, barber shop (beauty shops only have gossip), and especially those grand structures in all 120 Kentucky counties called Courthouses. Btw, Kentucky has more counties than any state but Tx (212) or GA (159) so by its very nature there will be politics. I would love to hear of some of the suggested sites you receive.

I don't know - it'll be hard to beat Texas in political entertainment...but we'll see. The Texas Legislature is renowned for its hi-jinks.

We're working on buying a house in Winchester (Clark County), though based on the home inspector's report I just got a few hours ago, now I'm not so sure... see related post to come.
