FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky officials say local water district commissioners are now required to get their initial training through the state's Public Service Commission.

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources is studying the impact of looser regulations on bass size limits during some fishing tournaments.

The study will help biologists determine if the changes would affect the overall fishery in the lake.
