  • "Calling her crime brazen and motivated by 'sheer greed,' a federal judge sentenced Karen Cunagin Sypher Friday to 7 years and 3 months in prison for trying to extort cash, cars and a house from University of Louisville men's basketball coach Rick Pitino." [Courier-Journal]
  • "Last weekend I joined 19 other Kentuckians in a sit-in at the office of Gov. Steve Beshear. We were there to protest his support of mountaintop removal, a technique used by coal-mining companies that, as its name implies, involves blasting away the tops of mountains and hills to get at the coal seams beneath them." [Kentuckian Silas House in the New York Times]
  • "After years of sharing a website, the Jeffersonville Evening News and the New Albany Tribune are merging." [WFPL]
  • "Five decades of bartending — twenty-three at Equus Restaurant and Jack's Lounge in Louisville, Kentucky — gives a girl a certain perspective on the business, and Joy Perrine is not one to suffer fools lightly on either side of the bar." [Esquire via Consuming Louisville]
