Perryman's Mortuary Independently, Family -Owned Locally Operated Affordable Funerals in All Price Ranges A Broadway SUNDAY, DECEMBER 31, 2000 ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTOS Moderator Bernard Shaw, left, shook hands with Republican Dick Cheney, center, and Democrat Joseph Lieberman following the October vice presidential debate on Centre College's campus in Danville. Presidential, state politics are Kentucky's top stories of the year Continued from Page B1 Williams said. Despite record sums of money and unprecedented campaign efforts, no incumbent senator lost in the general election, leaving the 20-18 GOP majority intact.

The No. 2 story of the year was the October vice presidential debate in Danville. Organizers dubbed it "Thrill in the 'Ville," and an estimated 25 million Americans watched Republican Dick Cheney and Democrat Joseph Lieberman conduct a thoughtful, calm discussion of issues from the Centre College campus. Danville had to overcome competition from much larger cities to land the debate, and then it weathered weeks of uncertainty as Cheney and running mate George W. Bush threatened to pull out.

A week later, no one was injured when 250 million gallons of coal slurry poured out of the Martin County Coal Corp. impoundment into tributaries of the Big Sandy River. The spill was an environmental disaster. The cleanup continued nearly around-the-clock for weeks, costing the company millions of dollars and prompting a review of other slurry impoundments to see if they were also located over mined-out works. The fourth-biggest story of 2000 in Kentucky was reminiscent of controversies of a generation ago.

It was in 1980 that the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a Kentucky law that directed posting of the Ten Commandments on classroom walls breached the constitutional separation of church and state. By 2000, schools and counties were again seeking ways to post the Decalogue on the walls of public buildings, and federal courts were again ruling against it. The American Civil Liberties Union won a court injunction to force the Ten Commandments' removal in Pulaski and McCreary counties and i in Harlan County schools. By the end of the year, the counties and the Harlan County schools had again posted the Decalogue, and the ACLU was back in court seeking a contempt ruling.

The wedding on Oct. 27 of Lt. Gov. Steve Henry and former Miss America Heather French at Cathedral of the Assumption in Louisville was the fifth-biggest story of the year. Adding to the notoriety was an investigation undertaken by the state auditor to determine if state money had been used for the planning or staging of the wedding.

Another spill of a different sort Bruce Cline inspected a tray of burley seedlings on his Hopkinsville farm in May. He had contracted to grow 130 acres of burley for Philip Morris. and a radical change in the way burley tobacco is marketed tied for the sixth-biggest story of the year. As to the spill, a fire in May leveled a Wild Turkey Distillery warehouse containing thousands of gallons of aging bourbon in Lawrenceburg. Liquor that flowed into the Kentucky River caused a massive fish kill.

On the tobacco front, an industry already racked by huge quota cuts and an uncertain future was thrown in further disarray when Philip Morris announced it would contract to buy some burley directly from farmers and bypass the warehouse auction system. Farmers were initially pleased with the prices they got, but others warned the practice could lead to the end of the price-support and quota systems. The eighth story was a freak January tornado that caused millions of dollars damage and some serious injuries in Owensboro. The storm prompted local authorities to re-examine their emergency sponse systems. Tying for the ninth-biggest story were the presidential race in the state and voters' approval of annual legislative sessions.

Kentucky started out as a battleground in the race for president but became a bystander. Bush and Cheney were frequent visitors, while Democrat Al Gore was a virtual noshow. Bush easily won the state. Voters' approval of annual legislative sessions came in November. The idea had been rejected in 1998, but a slightly repackaged constitutional amendment won widespread approval and will mean the beginning of annual sessions next year.
