pension

On this week's edition of Kentucky Tonight, host Bill Goodman and guests will discuss public employee pensions.  The program that aired "live" on KET Monday night will be re-broadcast Tuesday morning at 11:00 on the WEKU Stations.

Lexington Fire Chief Bob Hendricks says he has a total and permanent occupational disability. His request for a disability retirement came before the Police and Fire Pension Board Wednesday morning, while the embattled chief remains on paid leave. Hendricks was asked resign from his post two months ago amid overtime and budget problems within the Division of Fire. He refused to step down.
