Demonstration Against Proposal

FRANKFORT, Ky.-- Land owners joined environmental activists at the state capitol Wednesday to oppose a pipeline that would carry flammable liquids through several counties in northern Kentucky.

Some residents spoke during a brief rally about their fear of the proposed underground pipeline, which is being developed by a partnership of two energy companies. The more than 1,000-mile Bluegrass pipeline would carry a byproduct of the natural gas refining process from the northeast to a connection in Breckinridge County.
