    • "Tremors from a 5.8-magnitude earthquake centered near Richmond, Va., shook parts of eastern Kentucky, with at least two people reporting feeling some shaking as far away as Louisville. Mike Lynch, with the Kentucky Geologic Survey at the University of Kentucky, says he’s not all that surprised that tremors were felt in the Derby City." [WFPL]
    • "A Roman Catholic priest charged with sexually abusing two boys in the 1970s told the Archdiocese of Louisville in 1985 that he was a sexual addict, but church officials put him in treatment instead of removing him because they believed he was involved with men, not boys, according to court records released Tuesday. In addition, the Rev. James R. Schook admitted to church officials in the mid-1990s that he had given a man money in exchange for sex, according to the records. The archdiocese referred him to a counselor." [Courier-Journal]
    • "An internal memo from the Kentucky State Fair surfaced a few days ago (when a cyclist was turned away from the fair) revealing the fair’s regressive transportation policy banning bikes from the Kentucky Fair & Exposition Center. According to the note from Jerry Frantz, executive director at the Kentucky State Fair Board, cyclists are required to leave their bikes  at the periphery gates and walk through a vast sea of parking and cars before finally reaching the fair. The memo has rightly hit a nerve among Louisville’s cycling community and a Boycott the Kentucky State Fair page has been established on Facebook." [Broken Sidewalk]
