Kimball property on mind of C-J

The potential for public recreational opportunities from the sale of 12,000 acres of Kimball International Inc., property in Crittenden and Union counties has the editorial board of The Courier-Journal excited.

In today's issues of the state's flagship paper, an editorial lauds the Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife for its part in acquiring two large properties in the state: the Kimball property at the edge of the county and the 2,600-acre Otter Creek Park near Louisville.

Sen. Dorsey Ridley, D-Henderson, sums up the importance of the local project.

"In my district, people are totally ecstatic about this...," he told the paper. "It is such an opportunity for future generations of Kentuckians."
