Louisville news: Child abuse is the number one killer of infants in Kentucky edition [News]

  • " It's called a landmark in the prevention of child deaths in Kentucky. According to Kosair Children’s Hospital officials, child abuse is the number one killer of infants in Kentucky. House Bill 285, known as the 'Shaken Baby Bill' passed the general assembly. The goal is to provide education based on a curriculum that will raise awareness of child abuse and prevent it. [WHAS11]

  • "A plan to trim $500 million from the Ohio River Bridges Project could trigger a new federal review and revive alternatives to the two-bridge effort that previously were dismissed, environmental law experts say. Because 'there's a significant set of proposed changes to the project,' and the studies that serve as the basis for the project's approval are nearly a decade old, federal law will 'almost certainly' demand an additional review, said Howard Learner, executive director of the Environmental Law and Policy Center, a Chicago advocacy group."

  • "The Louisville Orchestra musicians sent out information this week about Keep Louisville Symphonic, which they describe as a 'citizen-led effort to support its orchestral future.' The orchestra has filed for Chapter 11. Last month, a judge ruled that the musicians must be paid. That also means that as long as the musicians are paid, they will play their regularly scheduled concerts. But there’s more. Keep Louisville Symphonic will launch with a concert on the 29th of this month at Ballard High School. Former Louisville Orchestra artistic director Uriel Segal will return to lead the performance. Tickets are free, but donations to Keep Louisville Symphonic are encouraged." [WFPL]
