Expected Highway Expansion for Noah’s Ark Theme Park Left Out of Kentucky House Construction Plan

Because the Noah’s Ark theme park is slated to open this summer, the officials in Williamstown, Kentucky have been counting on its success as they plan out their budgets. In fact, four years ago, they specifically listed an $11 million highway widening on I-75 (at the Ark Encounter exit) to accommodate all the extra traffic they were expecting.

If you were going to hire Capps to be your school’s new football coach, then, surely the interview would involved asking him about his mistake. Could he respect church/state separation?
