BEATTYVILLE, Ky. -- The story in the Beattyville Enterprise was just a few paragraphs long, tucked in the corner of the weekly community newspaper beside the lead story about a local murder investigation. But the item, quoting Sen. Mitch McConnell as saying it was “not my job” to bring jobs to the region, has become the latest flash point in the high-stakes battle between the Senate's top Republican and his potential Democratic opponent. The Enterprise, a paper so small it's accessible online only through its Facebook page , asked McConnell as he visited Lee County last week what he would do to help the area's struggling economy.

The space shuttle Enterprise has two big thumbs up: Both NASA and the FAA have given clearance to transport the shuttle to New York City on Friday morning, setting the stage for a dramatic flyover of the world's most famous skyline. The Big Apple has been waiting for this moment all week. The shuttle Enterprise was originally supposed to arrive Monday, and then Wednesday. But bad weather scuttled those plans. It's now scheduled to occur today between 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. Eastern.

If you fly JetBlue or Southwest, rent a car from National or Enterprise, stay at a Homewood Suites, a Staybridge Suites or a Drury hotel, a Four Seasons or a Ritz-Carlton, your trip will probably be marked by good customer service. Those brands on Monday were named Customer Service Champions by J.D. Power, which analyzed feedback from customers about nine industries, including travel. Customers evaluated their experience based on what J.D. Power calls the five Ps: people, presentation, price, process and product.

WASHINGTON - So what if it never flew into space? The retired space shuttle Enterprise, NASA's test orbiter, has been added to the National Register of Historic Places. The orbiter, now at New York City's Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, becomes the first space shuttle to receive the honorary designation. The National Park Service described the orbiter as "exceptionally significant" because of its role in the shuttle program. New York landed the Enterprise after a fierce national competition for the retired shuttles.

It wouldn't be quite accurate to say that J.J. Abrams' 2009 "Star Trek" reboot boldly went where no man had gone before. After all, such familiar faces such as Capt. Kirk, Mr. Spock and Uhura were along for the ride (though played by new actors), as was the venerable starship Enterprise (itself sporting a makeover). But thanks to some shrewd time-travel shenanigans, Abrams managed to branch off his own "Star Trek" timeline, allowing his version to draw on the franchise's mythos without having to carry all its baggage.

SACRAMENTO - Gov. Jerry Brown's drive to revamp a nearly three-decade-old business tax break teetered late Tuesday as he struggled to round up commitments for aye votes from a needed two-thirds of the members of the state Senate. Lobbying and head counting on the controversial bill to all but eliminate the $750-million-a-year enterprise zone program forced multiple postponements of a scheduled 4 p.m. session and sowed doubts about whether the governor would get his way. The program "is wasteful.

A 24-year-old Anaheim man accused of teaching a teenage girl to work as a prostitute, advertising her services on an X-rated website. A 19-year-old guy charged with forcing a stable of girls to walk Beach Boulevard, not far from Disneyland, and perform sex acts for money. A middle-aged Irvine woman accused of operating a brothel in an upscale apartment complex. Since tougher human-trafficking laws went on the books in January, officials across California have sharpened their focus, going after pimps who force women - often young runaways or girls lured by Internet postings - to sell their bodies.

No one in the world knows how to make the newspaper you are holding (and, if you're reading this on your phone, computer, iPad or Kindle, no one knows how to make those things either). Even the best editor in the world has no clue how to make a printing press or the ink, or how to operate a communications satellite. This is hardly a new insight. In 1958, Leonard Read wrote one of the most famous essays in the history of libertarianism, "I, Pencil. " It begins, "I am a lead pencil — the ordinary wooden pencil familiar to all boys and girls and adults who can read and write.

New York theaters The theater piece was a reminder of my good old days in New York ["Spirits of Theater Stir," by Kelly Merritt, Dec. 22]. The Beacon was my neighborhood movie theater, changing double bills twice a week (before round-the-clock TV), and the Hudson, home of the NBC late show with Steve Allen (with Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme making out in the balcony, and the "man on the street" interviews out the back entrance).Those were the days when theaters, refurbished or not, were always busy, and you could sit in the balcony for $4.80, where I saw Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne, Shirley Booth, Bert Lahr, Kim Stanley, Ethel Merman, Ezio Pinza and Mary Martin, Robert Preston and Yul Brynner, Zero Mostel, Gwen Verdon, Judy Holliday.

Give a quality high school football coach five years to execute a plan, and the results can be memorable. That's what came to fruition for Ed Croson and West Hills Chaminade on Saturday night at StubHub Center in Carson. Five years after leaving Lake Balboa Birmingham as a four-time City Section champion to assume the challenge of trying to revitalize the Eagles, Croson watched his program win the CIF state championship Division II bowl game with a dominating 41-9 victory over Redding Enterprise.

Investigators with the county auditor-controller's office reviewed the Enterprise Rent-a-Car contract at the request of Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich. A report by KCET-TV had raised questions about the way the business was awarded.
