Vicki Aubrey Welch & Barbara Shanklin (and a few others, ugh, too many to type) said last week that they plan to participate in the Metro furlough. [Press Releases]

Jockey Michael Baze died of an accidental overdose of cocaine and prescription pain medication. [H-L]

This year’s Crusade for Children collected more than $5.1 million. While down from last year, that’s still pretty great. [C-J/AKN]

On Friday, Republican Party of Kentucky Chairman Steve Robertson questioned Jack Conway for the 31st Day: “Jack Conway’s poor judgment continues,” said Robertson. “When given an opportunity to answer questions and come clean, he is misleading and evasive. It’s really very simple. We believe the voters deserve to know how the Attorney General conducted himself when he learned about a compromised drug investigation.” [Press Release]

Greg Fischer will take time out from playing Legos to appear on WFPL at 1:00 P.M. this Wednesday. [WFPL]

All the more reason not to go to Indiana or to Walmart: You’ll just cold get shot. [FOX41]

If you want tasty vegan food, don’t go looking for food just because it’s labeled vegan. Though, you SHOULD go looking for it at Morels and Cake Flour. [Consuming Louisville]

Finalists to be superintendent in Lexington face a grueling day of interviews. Unfortunately, nothing like that will happen with either of Jefferson County’s finalists. [H-L]

Jefferson County’s finalists are meeting the public. But we all know the decision has already been made. Now to figure out how they’re tied to Terry Holliday. [WAVE3]

The Kentucky Lottery forecasts a sales record of $813 million during the 2011-2012 fiscal year. But casinos in Kentucky? Haha, right, the mouth-breathers couldn’t stand to let that happen… despite nearly a billion dollars flushed down the toilet on lottery tickets and such. [WHAS11]

People are freaking out over New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s $3,000 worth of helicopter time. But Democrats are ignoring Steve Beshear’s $85,000 worth of flight time. Interesting how that hypocrisy works. [Page One]

    Thank you for your link to Klayko’s Germantown/Broken Sidewalk link. We have been marveling & having fun with the story on our local Germantown – Schnitzelburg FB page.
