THE WINCHESTER SUN F R I D AY, A P R I L 1 3 , 2 0 1 2 — A 3 White House: Failed North Korean launch ‘provocative’ WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. officials say a rocket launched by North Korea failed moments after being fired, but the Obama administration still described the launch as a “provocative action” that threatens regional security. It said it has lost confidence in Pyongyang and would carry out its threat to halt a planned delivery of food aid to the communist country. In a statement, White House spokesman Jay Carney said the actions of the North Korean regime were further isolating it from the international community. “While this action is not surprising, given North Korea’s pattern of aggressive behavior, any missile activity by North Korea is of concern to the international community,” Carney said. His statement came after the North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command said the first stage of the North Korean rocket fell to the Yellow Sea and that the remaining stages failed. North Korea had said for weeks it would launch a satellite over the East China Sea. The North says its satel- AP photo South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, center, presides over an emergency meeting of the National Security Council over North Korea's long-range rocket with Defense Minister Kim Kwanjin, second from right in background, and Unification Minister Yu Woo-Ik, left in background, at the presidential house in Seoul, South Korea today. North Korea fired a long-range rocket early this morning, South Korean and U.S. officials said, defying international warnings against moving forward with a launch widely seen as a provocation. planned delivery of food aid to North Korea depended on monitoring agreements with Pyongyang that would ensure the assistance would reach the people of North Korea, not the elites and the military. The official said the U.S. now has no confidence those agreements can be implemented. The U.N. Security Council, where the United States is currently serving in the rotating presidency, would meet on Friday morning to discuss the North Korean action, an official said. But the U.S. is not expected to seek an additional Security Council resolution against North Korea. Another administration official said existing sanctions resolutions against North Korea are adequate and said their enforcement could be “ratcheted up.” The administration believes U.S. sanctions against North Korea have restricted its proliferation activities. our economy and be turned the following four years, over many times through our passed 89-4 just minutes retail establishments.

Lawmakers scraped up funding for some high-priority projects, including $2.5 million to begin design work on a proposed renovation of Rupp Arena, home of the University of Kentucky basketball team. They also agreed to pony up $3.5 million for improvements at the Kentucky Horse Park north of Lexington.

Adair, Bath counties added to storm aid list FRANKFORT (AP) — Two more counties have been added to the list of those eligible for reimbursements to county and local governments to help with recovery from storms and tornadoes about six weeks ago. Gov. Steve Beshear’s office says the addition of Adair and Bath counties brings the total number of counties receiving storm-related federal aid to 23. The assistance provides reimbursements to county and local governments to repair public infrastructure or to remove storm debris. Bath County was previously approved for individual assistance. Counties approved for individual and public assistance are Bath, Grant, Johnson, Kenton, LaRue, Laurel, Lawrence, Magoffin, Martin, Menifee, Morgan, Pendleton, Trimble and Wolfe. Individual assistance has been approved for Campbell, Carroll, Grayson, Montgomery, Ohio, Rowan and Russell counties.
