What were the 3 cities considered to be the capital of KY?
The capital of Kentucky is Frankfort in Franklin county. Originally part of Virginia, the land that is now Kentucky was formed into Kentucky county, Virginia in 1776. Four years later it was divided into the Fayette, Jefferson, and Lincoln counties of Virginia. It became the fifteenth of the United States in 1792. The name Kentucky is of Native American origin and as been attributed to several languages with several possible meanings from "land of tomorrow" to "cane and turkey lands" to "meadow lands."

Asked in Kentucky, Demographics, Same-Sex Marriage
How many same-sex couples have married in Laurel County Kentucky?
No same-sex couples have legally married in Laurel county because the state constitution of Kentucky has been amended to prohibit same-sex marriage. On July 1, 2014, however, a United States District Judge ruled that Kentucky's ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional. No same-sex couples were able to marry because a temporary stay was put in place pending appeal. On August 6, 2014, the United States Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit will hear oral arguments in the consolidated appeal of four states whose bans on same-sex marriage have been struck down: Kentucky (two cases), Ohio (two cases), Michigan and Tennessee. Soon afterward, the court will decide whether same-sex couples can begin marrying in those states.

Does the laurel leaf or flower have any religious meaning?
Laurel has traditionally been a symbol of victory. In ancient Greece and Rome, those who succeeded in athletic or competitive events were crowned with a laurel wreath. Thus, it is alluded to by the apostle Paul when he refers to the victor's crown. The leaves of the laurel do not wilt, so it is sometimes associated with eternity.
