Male dog. Very sweet. No collar, but had a brown tether attached to him. Hopefully he was chipped :). He was taken to the Fayette county animal shelter.
I would like to take a moment of appreciation for the recognition by Westmoreland of my 2013 Readers Choice Award Win for Best Lexington dentist. I was surprised and honored when the exit announcement signage mentioned it. I'm truly blessed to have such great neighbors. Again I thank you.

The message below was received from Donnie Garrett of ATS Construction this morning. The operative word in this announcement is "tentatively" – - in other words, the lane shift may or may not occur on this date. This is just a "heads up" that the west-bound lanes shift is likely to occur soon.
As always, use caution when exiting Westmorland, and alert people you know that are coming this way that they can expect to see a change in the very near future.
Traffic change to place westbound lanes back on its original side is tentatively set for tomorrow 7-23-13 during evening hours.

Last year's was the best ever! Let's see if we can beat it!
Below is the very prompt reply that I received back from Tony McGaha, Project Manager for the Versailles Road re-surfacing project, regarding the sharp transition on to the new east-bound asphalt in front of Westmorland. I hope this allay's people's concerns that this is going to be a long term condition.
In the meantime, approach it slowly, and angle your vehicle on to the new section if possible. We have a nice wide median area for now, as well as an acceleration towards Lexington.
This phase involves building up the median along US 60, so the area that you are talking about will change several times over the next couple weeks as they place asphalt through there. I know it is not ideal right now, as we are ramping up to a pavement that is 9 inches higher than the old pavement. There isn’t a good way to ramp up that amount of pavement in that short of a section, and we are having the same issues at other intersections throughout the project. However, soon they will be paving the median and that transition bump will lessen. I don’t have an exact timeframe, but this entire phase shouldn’t take more than 3-4 weeks, so change will happen fairly quickly.
