Parents are calling into question the leadership of Male’s new principal, David Mike, whose first year is mired in an ongoing investigation into accusations of improper protocol on state standardized tests. Parents say he’s also unethical and unprofessional with students and staff and are concerned he’s forcing faculty to leave. Note: JCPS officials told us off-the-record after the last suicide that the principal was a hot mess. [WDRB]

Kosair Charities, which has given more than $6 million annually to Kosair Children’s Hospital, is accusing parent company Norton Healthcare of misusing some of that money to enhance its bottom line and “line the pockets” of its executives. [C-J/AKN]

Another fun weekend in Louisville filled with crazy shootings. Not in the West End, either, mouth-breathers. [WHAS11WHAS11]

Is Andy Beshear just like his homophobic daddy? Only time will tell. Beshear applies these assumptions in a new way: because same-sex couples do not contribute to the birth rate, it’s not economically beneficial for Kentucky to recognize their marriages. [Think Progress]

Wait, yet another shooting, this time ending in death. Again, not in the West End. [WLKY]

Long before Kim Baker became the leader of Kentucky’s biggest arts venue, she was an aspiring 16-year-old flutist studying at the Kentucky Governor’s School for the Arts. [H-L]

An attorney for a New Albany police officer claims a civil suit is in the works against NAPD after allegations of corrupt conduct. Laura Landenwich represents Patrol Officer Laura Schook, a 19-year veteran, who informed New Albany’s Police Merit Commission about corruption, discrimination and misuse of taxpayer money during a meeting May 8.

Guess it’s safe to assume sports are bigger hits than embezzlement or corruption. This speculative story about the University of Louisville and the Yum Center last week was the most read story — ever — on The ‘Ville Voice. Ouch. [The 'Ville Voice]

This is an interesting story about crashing Kentucky Derby gates. But it stinks of failure of the governor’s security detail and highlights just how easy it is for crazy people to get close to the him/her. [WFPL]

The University of Louisville has made two appointments for interim deans and another interim appointment to replace its departing vice president of student affairs. [Business First]

The attorney for a New Albany Police Department officer who has asked that alleged corruption at the agency be investigated says legal action will be taken against the department. [News & Tribune]

    “Does Anyone Want to Come to UofL?”

    Let’s see. UofL’s College of Education & Human Development had an interim dean for about six years or so (handpicked by his boyhood buddy Jimbo). Now, its School of Law, already with an interim, asks her to stay on for three more years. Oh, I almost forgot, we also now have yet another interim–this one for VP for student affairs. One need not wonder why it is so difficult to get qualified professionals for “leadership” roles at Belknap. Simply refer to the endless stream of scandals that pervade those environs (seemingly every few month). Please, shake up the damn place before people lose all confidence in it! (You will need to go beyond the Board of Cadavers, who have slept for at least the last decade).
