  • "Kentucky’s state employee health plan was one of the largest recipients of money last year from a new federal program to help pay health claims of retirees under age 65. The state received $29.7 million from the Early Retiree Reinsurance Program, which was established by the health reform law enacted last March. U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius released a report on the program’s first year Wednesday." [Courier-Journal]
  • "Brown-Forman has agreed to sell its Fetzer wine business to Chile’s Vina Concha y Toro for $238 million. The company announced Tuesday afternoon that the sale of Fetzer Vineyards includes the winery, bottling facility, vineyards, brand and its other Hopland, Calif.-based wines including Bonterra, Little Black Dress, Jekel, Five Rivers, Bel Arbor, Coldwater Creek, and Sanctuary." [Courier-Journal]
  • "MetroSafe Communications issued a page early Monday warning Jefferson County's suburban fire chiefs that a tornado warning was in effect, but it failed to set off civil-defense sirens — raising new questions about whether MetroSafe followed its own procedures." [Courier-Journal]
