{Kentucky}...Pike County Judge Executive Wayne T. Rutherford says a Fortune 500 energy company wants to locate on the Scott Fork property on U.S. 119. Rutherford says state and local officials are working with the company to negotiate a deal, and the county will do whatever it takes to attract the company and its 60 new jobs that pay around $60,000 salary. Brad Hall with the Southeast Kentucky Chamber of Commerce says more people with good paying jobs can attract new retailers.
