Whites only group adopts Ky. highway section

NEWPORT, Ky. (AP) - A whites only group has adopted a stretch of the AA Highway in northern Kentucky through the state's anti-litter program.

National Socialist Movement member Geoffrey Rash of Alexandria told The Kentucky Enquirer (http://bit.ly/TBN3pK ) that the organization is not a hate group, even though it uses a swastika as a symbol. Rash says the symbol shows they are socialists, not Nazis.

The group adopted a two mile stretch of highway between Cold Spring and Wilder.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spokesman Chuck Wolfe says the state does not have a restrictive policy on the program because the point is to encourage people to pick up litter.
