FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Gov. Steve Beshear says two Kentucky airports will receive more than $3 million in grants from the Federal Aviation Administration to make needed improvements.
   A statement on Thursday said the Blue Grass Airport in Lexington will receive $2.7 million to upgrade runways and the Wayne County Airport in Monticello will receive $373,760 to relocate and replace fuel tanks and do a study of its runway.
   Beshear says airports are needed "for economic development, commerce and passenger travel" and keeping them updated and safe is of "vital" importance.
