It’s Josh Redding’s 18th birthday – big milestone, so we’ve been hanging out today instead of making up stories here. So we’re missing most of a big news day. And Tiger’s playing in the PGA on the TV.
Some of today’s news is NOT about you-know-what, so here goes:
It’s BIG in New York: Check out the cover of the New York Post. [Page One]
“I now think my husband was paid to marry me.” Yes, the Post loves this stuff. [NYPost]
Not Shocked by Schreck: Guess what? Codes and Regulations Director Bill Schreck sided with Swift in the current dispute with the Butchertown Neighborhood Association. He says they’re not really storing meat there in violation of zoning laws, to which BNA’s Jon Saloman says – Bull! It will appeal the decision to BOZA.
Today’s Stinson News: Ex-PRP coach Jason Stinson won’t have to deal with a wanton endangerment charge, at least for now, after a judge dismissed it because Stinson’s side had no opportunity to present its case. No matter. Prosecutors vow to file the charge again with a new grand jury. [Fox41]
And Jerry Will Be First: Seinfeld, that is, will be the first guest on NBC’s new Jay Leno show, which we’re assuming will be aired here on WAVE. So we’ll watch it on Sept. 14, at least.
Another Overdue Apology: The owner of Woody’s Tavern plans a public apology today for an event that occurred in April 2008. Woody’s Tavern owner David Norton made racist and sexist remarks and chased some U of L students out of his bar.
Yes, There’s a Lot of Down Time at the Firehouse: A Lexington firefighter had the nerve to download child porn while at work. He got caught. [AP]
And in Court Today: Karen Sypher dropped her monetary demand that she wants from her husband from $11,000 to $4,900, only a few hundred more than his total monthly income. And she claims he’s always gambling at Churchill Downs. Pitino attorney Pence practically called her a nut. Is someone working on the movie rights to all this? [WLKY]
Reason to Watch Comment: Fox41′s Candyce Clifft, who also hosts KET’s Louisville Life, is on Comment on Kentucky tonight to talk about Karen and Rick. Ronnie Ellis and WTVQ’s Greg Stotelmyer will be on too. Starts at 8.
Thanks for celebrating our two year anniversary with us. Have a great weekend.
