emblazoned on cars all over Lexington. Quest assistant pastor Justin McCarty has the answer. Since two thousand and six the church at four hundred and ten Sporting Court has held a one-day bash dubbed Questapalooza. This year, the celebration has expanded and the theme has been tweaked. And the church's campus at two thousand, two hundred and fifty Lawrenceburg Road in Frankfort is also included.Through Sept. sixteen, church members are throwing "a party for our city" by serving the communities and inviting non-members to join in.

"It's a part of the community in the twenty-onest century."People may register online atIlovelexington.com orIlovefrankfort.com toparticipate in serviceprojects, tweet pictures of people they love to be displayed on a wall in the church and keep up-to-date via Facebook.The projects includebringing meals to firestations, non-profits andsanitation workers;random acts ofkindness; andproviding treats to school kids. The week will culminate with aQuestapalooza-like concert at the Lexington campus.Church member Ashley Smith is looking forward to the weeklong event."Instead of people coming to us for the party, the idea is to take the party out to them," said Smith, an organizer of the event. "We are just so excited to really get a chance to put action to the way our heart feels about the community." She likes to call this year's effort a "serve-a-palooza."Questapalooza fans need not worry. There are several free worship events during the week.On Friday, the God's Not Dead!

This weekend is big for Kentucky football. One would think that a game against a MAC team wouldneight thousand, two hundred and seventeen;t be a huge contest, especially since those games are usually put in to bolster the win totals. But two things stick out. One, if Kentucky loses, the fans will revolt. I hate to say it, but they are already smoldering a bit. If they lose, the fire will begin and it may not be pretty. Look back at the early days of Rich Brooks when fans were irate and lost their minds. That will pale in comparison in my opinion. Second, MAC teams are good teams and teams that Kentucky has struggled with in the past. Whenever I see these teams on the schedule, I get a little nervous. They are kryptonite. Later today, I will break down the game a bit and give my thoughts. Until then, hereeight thousand, two hundred and seventeen;s two things that stand out. one. The defense HAS to be better. Teddy Bridgewater could have thrown grenades into the open spots on the field Sunday and none of the UK Players would have been hurt because they were so far away. That have got to play better defenseeight thousand, two hundred and thirty;period. two. Kentucky has to continue being aggressive on offense. If Kentucky plays safe, as they have the last two years, and loses, the firestorm will be worse. At least throw caution to the wind and play to win from the opening kick. No more conservative playcalling. eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and twelve;eight thousand, two hundred and eleven; John Calipari took everyone on a tour of the new Wildcat Coal Lodge this morning.

Sept seven - Fitch Ratings considers Dominion Resources, Inc.'s (DRI) announcement that it is pursuing a sale of three coal-fired merchant generating plants to be supportive of credit quality, but not likely to affect current ratings ('BBB+' Issuer Default Rating). If successful, the plan to sell the under-performing assets would reduce commodity price sensitivity and business risk and moderately lower capital requirements. A sale should also reduce liquidity and working capital needs. Previously, DRI announced it is seeking a sale of the Kewaunee nuclear plant.For fixed income investors, the benefits are partly offset by a planned rise in the dividend payout ratio to sixty-five percents - seventy percents of operating earnings from sixty percents - sixty-five percents. Moreover, net proceeds from the asset sale will be used first to replace planned equity offerings with the balance to reduce future debt financings. However, the cash inflow provides additional financial flexibility.DRI plans to sell the Brayton Point, Kincaid and Elwood coal-fired generating stations. The three merchant generating plants aggregate approximately three,four hundred MW. After the sale, merchant generating capacity would be reduced to approximately three,six hundred MW (excluding wind) and the management estimates the contribution of regulated businesses would increase to approximately eighty percents - ninety percents of consolidated earnings from seventy-six percents.The remaining merchant assets are well positioned and produce positive cash flow. The assets include the low cost Millstone nuclear plant and the Fairless natural gas facility, which is located in a constrained zone in PJM. The Manchester plant provides support to the Millstone plant.Current ratings reflect the strong cash flows from a large diverse asset base, including a significant contribution from regulated businesses, an aggressive capital investment plan and a high level of parent debt.Additional information is available at 'www.fitchratings.com'.Applicable Criteria and Related Research:--'Corporate Rating Methodology', (Aug. eight, two thousand and twelve); --'Parent and Subsidiary Rating Linkage', (Aug. twelve, two thousand and eleven); --'Recovery Ratings and Notching Criteria for Utilities', (May three, two thousand and twelve); --'Rating North American Utilities, Power, Gas and Water Companies', (May twelve, two thousand and eleven).Applicable Criteria and Related Research: Corporate Rating Methodology Parent and Subsidiary Rating Linkage Recovery Ratings and Notching Criteria for Utilities Rating North American Utilities, Power, Gas, and Water Companies
