Fort Campbell, Kentucky – A memorial service is scheduled Friday for two soldiers from Fort Campbell's 101st Airborne Division killed last week during a training exercise in Louisiana.
The two soldiers are 27-year-old Corporal Jason Fisher of Thousand Oaks, California, and 20-year-old Private First Class Joseph Favorito III of Higgins Lake, Michigan. They were run over by a 63 ton tank while participating in urban assault exercises at the Army's Joint Readiness Training Center at Fort Polk.
Frankfort, Kentucky – State officials deny they tried to prevent the State Auditor from learning about Medicaid overpayments to a nursing home owned by Tina Connor. The Governor's former mistress operates Birchtree Healthcare in Clinton, Kentucky. Auditor Ed Hatchett says the state's Medicaid Agency tried to withhold information about the extra payments. Hatchett also says the Medicaid office has not managed the debt it is owed, known as "accounts receivable". But, officials with the Medicaid Agency deny both the allegations.
