Welcome to Shark Week. Let’s get it going.
Tie Dancing: So what if half the local TV stations didn’t make it to Fancy Farm over the weekend. We got the best video from the event — Mrs. Mongiardo dancing with a tie. She seems to know something about getting up on a table to dance, don’t you think? [Page One]
Don’t Listen to What the Preacher Said: No, David Tandy says, just because Rev. Kevin Cosby congratulated him in church for running for Mayor doesn’t mean he’s in. Joe Arnold talked to Tandy about it, but apparently didn’t ask him about the brewing controversy we started about using a city employee as a babysitter.
Yes, You’re Paying: Karen Cunagin Sypher has a new attorney. At her Friday hearing, a judge appointed former federal prosecutor James Earhart to represent her against charges of extortion and lying in connection with Rick Pitino. She claims her only income comes from TWO ex-husbands and amounts to $1,600. [AP]
Words We Never Thought We’d See: “Cunagin Sypher would not comment after Friday’s hearing.”
The Other Door: Though she didn’t speak, Sypher made quite an appearance at the courthouse. Check out WLKY’s video as she and her divorce attorneys try to figure out how to get in. [WLKY]
Reasons To Lean Left: Arnold Garson decided to explain why the Courier-Journal’s editorial policy is liberal, and to remind readers that its news staff is supposedly not influenced by its editorial board. So they say. [Courier]
Incompetence and Poo: Looks like a lot of support for Animal Services director Gilles Meloche in the latest Golden Poo award. We’ve got five more categories coming this week. [Golden Poo]
Wayside and BOZA: Expect more news from this morning BOZA meeting, as the board now wants to reconsider its earlier decision that would have prevented Wayside from moving in to the Hotel Louisville building until the Metro Council acts. Round and round we go. [Courier]
