The Highlands Bank Robbery Is An Insane Story

We can’t decide if this is worthy of a cringe or not. Josh Young, the teen who last year was found not guilty of killing his 14-year-old stepbrother, is taping an upcoming appearance on Dr. Phil. [WDRB]

Basically, nothing has changed and polls this early unfortunately don’t mean much. Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes holds a slim 4-point advantage over U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in a new Herald-Leader/WKYT Bluegrass Poll, with many voters saying they disapprove of McConnell but don’t yet know Grimes nine months from Election Day.

Something tells us it wouldn’t pass once people understood it. We remember a similar situation with the failed library tax. Kentuckians favor a constitutional amendment that would allow cities and counties to impose local sales taxes through voter referendums — but they aren’t so certain they would actually vote for such a tax when it is proposed.

We’re posting this from three different stations so you can see how the story changes or remains the same. Louisville Metro police said a bank robbery getaway ended in minutes with two suspects in custody and the driver dead after detectives tracked the suspects’ car to Cherokee Park. [WAVE3]

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer saved the Parkwood neighborhood (that’s near Iroquois Park) from a tormenting fire troll, The Onion reported on Thursday. [WFPL]

Clark County Community Corrections and the county’s probation department both run home incarceration programs, or HIPs. For the second time in less than a year, county officials will explore the possibility of whittling that number down to one. [News & Tribune]

    “Pity Poor Mitch”

    Mitch: “I can’t believe Kentuckians disapprove of me more than they do of Obama.”

    Empress Elaine: “Unbelievable. After all you’ve done for women, for jobs, for the environment, for the poor. God is not fair, Mitch.”

    Mitch: “Yeah, I even acted like I liked His looney Tea Partyers–and even that didn’t help.”
