That was the message U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, a Republican from Bowling Green, brought Monday to economics and political science students at Western Kentucky University. “For every ounce of government, you give up an ounce of liberty,” said Paul, who replaced longtime Kentucky U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning. The ophthalmologist said government is not “inherently stupid” but “it does send the wrong signals.”</a> Tue, 16 Oct 2012 19:44:57 +0000 Chuck Mason, The Daily News, Bowling Green 34421 at http://weku.fm Rand Paul Speaks at WKU Students Cash in After Success on Exams http://weku.fm/post/students-cash-after-success-exams <p><a href="http://www.bgdailynews.com/news/local/local-students-cash-in-after-success-on-exams/article_f37a3d6c-08bf-11e2-8fe0-001a4bcf887a.html">Bowling Green High School students recently became $17,500 richer by participating in AdvanceKentucky, a program of advanced placement tests.

Even with new local, state and federal laws enacted this year against synthetic drugs, those who make and those who market what might be called “7H,” “Mr. Happy,” “K2,” “K3,” “Wicked X,” “Happy Hour” or “Head Trip” – among many trade names – continue to create chemical combinations that can’t be detected by drug screens and can fly under the radar of vigilant parents.
