KY jolly: Bluegrass state school mulls DP benefits

by Jeremy Hooper

   The University of Kentucky, at the request of faculty and staff, is studying the issue of offering health benefits to their employees' unmarried domestic partners, and school officials say they could possibly implement a program by July.

Good news for the school's mascot, just in case he, a "Wildcat," is simply not wild about...cat.

We'll have to wait and see if the plan actually becomes policy; however, for the sake of the UK dining hall worker who makes amazing bread yet not enough dough to cover her cherished, uninsured partner's healthcare needs -- we're remaining hopeful.
