U-S Senator Rand Paul wants to delay the Senate Confirmation of Army Lt.General Thomas Bostick to become the Corp's Commanding General. The lawmaker from Bowling Green is unhappy with the Corp's performance in the Bluegrass State. Repairs on the Wolf Creek Dam, which impounds Lake Cumberland, have taken longer and cost more than expected. That project carries a price tag of  more than a half billion dollars.
