    Okay so that accounts for the entire population of the state , what about all the people that cross state lines to work, do they get counted too since they are employed in KY?

    The only stat I could find with a Google search said 10,424 (2002). I presume this is just with distillers and wouldn't in clude related jobs such as cooperage, etc.

    Sylvester Stallone has been observed digging fence post holes by hand and Linda Carter had a 4 wheeler accident and was treated at the local hospital. It seems that some of their Hollywood friends have found a place to be apart from the business and relax.
