Bankruptcy filings have continued to grow steadily in the Western District of Kentucky, as they have nationally.
Here are the numbers:
2006:  7,072 cases
2007:  9,469 cases
2008:  11,057 cases
2009: (first quarter) 3,162 cases
The first quarter of 2009 number is larger than any of the previous quarters since 2006, with the next closest quarter being the third quarter of 2008, which saw 2,902 cases. 
It looks like 2009 is on track to be the largest number of filings by year since the 2005 BAPCPA  and could surpass 2004 which saw 15,146 filings.
