Unless that opinion is challenged in court and successfully overturned, by a judge, there is virtually no chance of a business like Lucky 7's reopening by simply moving to a zone where it would be legal under Ashland's current zoning laws.

    Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear has endorsed an effort to accelerate the death of Kentucky's traditional landline services, saying it is crucial to his effort to connect much of the state's economically depressed rural areas with 3,000 miles of fiber optic cables.
