and Upper streets to one-way.
Roughly 20 years later, city planners made that same switch on
Main and Vine streets.
It was the era of Urban Renewal. Downtown retail was beginning to erode with the development of suburban shopping areas
such as Southland and Eastland.
Turfland Mall was being opened
By Beverly Fortune
and Amanda Hancock
and Fayette Mall was in the planning stages.

The former head of the state
agencies that oversee student
financial aid in Kentucky spent
$55,010 on travel and entertainment in 2010 and 2011, including $42,000 for 30 out-of-state

Florida and Washington, D.C., Edward Cunningham often treated dinner guests to meals that cost
more than $100 a person, according to expense
reports requested by the newspaper in February
under the Kentucky Open Records Act.
Cunningham abruptly retired from his post
as chief executive of the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority and the Kentucky
Higher Education Student Loan Corp. after a
board meeting April 17. Cunningham, who had
led the closely related agencies since July 2006,
gave no explanation for his departure in a resignation letter and could not be reached for comment by the newspaper.
