Michael Bloomberg, former mayor of New York City, is now leading a group called 'Mayors Against Illegal Guns'. A more appropriate name for this group would be 'Mayors Against All Guns'. Several mayors have left the group recently, saying that Bloomberg is waging a war against legal gun owners, not illegal ones.
However, the group still has a good number of mayors who are sticking around- seven of them being mayors of Kentucky cities. They are-
Greg Fischer- Louisville
Everette Varney- Georgetown
Mary Brown- Fort Thomas
William Lammlein- La Grange
Bobby F. Crager- Flatwoods
Gene McMurry- Carrollton
George Lisle Cheatham III- Greensburg
A full list of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns can be found here- http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2014/02/robert-farago/full-updated-list-mayors-illegal-guns-e-civilian-disarmament/

Allen Central High School, in Floyd county Kentucky, caused quite the controversey a few years back when news sites ran stories about the school because of their display of the Confederate flag in the cafeteria. If you google Allen Central High School, you get a result for their website which has a picture of a Confederate Soldier holding a battle flag next to the link to directions to the school. If you enter the school's website and watch the picture slide show at the top of the screen, you can see a picture of the football team and cheerleading squad with a CBF shaded in behind them. Even on the faculty information page, one holding of the teachers is wearing a shirt that says "rebel" with a battle flag background.
The media's response to this display of Southern pride will surprise no one. In an article for Daily Kos, "Doctor RJ" asks "when did Kentucky become part of the Confederacy?" Well, as most people who study the War Between the States know, Kentucky was fiercely divided during the war. One county might have been pro-Union but the county to the right or left of it might have been pro-Confederate. Floyd county, where Allen Central is located, was one of the most pro-Confederate counties in the state- quite possibly the most pro-Confederate county in Eastern Kentucky.
Of course, the article brings up how offensive the flag is to blacks at the school. Black students make up 33 of the 6,348 students in Floyd county. Interestingly enough, they quote a black student showing discontent for the battle flag, yet he does not attend Allen Central or live in Floyd county- he lives 30 miles away in Pike county, which is just east of Floyd county. They might as well have interviewed your uncle's best friend's high school janitor's best friend's college room mate who visited Allen Central once 10 years ago and didnt like that they displayed Confederate flags.
I certainly have a lot of respect for this school for not backing down (and firing the principal who tried to get the board to remove the flags). The article is dated by several years but I haven't been able to find evidence that contradicts the fact that the battle flag is still present on school grounds. I'm shocked there hasn't been more opposition, but then again, this goes for an example of how Eastern Kentucky and other areas of Appalachia are still Southern strongholds- and should be a future target for League events.

The Kentucky League of the South is seeking regional chairmen to help organise the state. Kentucky is a big state- Pike county (furthest east) to Fulton county (furthest west) is a seven hour drive. This can make getting everyone in the state together at every meeting difficult. Dividing into smaller chapters would help solve this issue. The regions are as follows- Northern, Northeast, Southeast, Central, North Central, South Central, Northwestern, and Southwestern. A map of the regions is located under the "Leadership Positions" tab on our website.
Currently, chairmen for Northern, Central, and Southeast Kentucky have been found. If you live in one of the other regions and are interested in becoming a chairman, please send an e-mail to [email protected] for more details.
