Louisville news: Fewer of you are unemployed, more of you have given up edition [News]

  • "Kentucky’s unemployment rate was 9.9 percent in July, the first dip below 10 percent since February 2009, the state said Thursday. But the drop has more to do with people giving up searching for work — which means they are no longer counted as unemployed — rather than an actual improvement in the job market, according to Ron Crouch, director of research and statistics for the state Office of Employment and Training." [Courier-Journal]
  • "A Fayette Circuit judge ruled Thursday that former state Rep. Steve Nunn can face the death penalty if convicted of murdering his ex-fiancee last fall, saying that his violation of a protective order against the victim is an aggravating factor that makes him eligible for execution." [Courier-Journal]
  • "The Huffington Post has named Louisville the 5th most underrated city in America. Fort Worth, Akron, Sacramento and Portland were also on the list, along with 13 others." [WFPL]
