    • "State Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer spent $1,576 in state money last month while promoting the Department of Agriculture’s Kentucky Proud program at the Sweet Sixteen boys’ basketball tournament in Lexington. Much of that cost was for four nights at a $359-a-night suite at the Lexington Downtown Hilton. Farmer lives 28 miles from Rupp Arena in Frankfort. He also was reimbursed for $40 spent on valet parking, according to expense records obtained by the Lexington Herald-Leader." [Bluegrass Politics]
    • "With the Ohio River currently five feet over the flood stage and more rain expected, the National Weather Service’s flash flood watches and warnings continue for much of the area, including Louisville. The NWS further says the worst may be yet to come, as rainfall is expected to continue throughout and the coming days.
      All of the Metro Sewer District’s flood pumping stations were active last week in preparation for heavy rain over the weekend." [WFPL]
