Public Divorce Part I: A Family Court judge has sealed the divorce court records for Tim and Karen Sypher. That’s just one of the aspects of the story dominating local news. The C-J came up with a new, less-glamorous photo of Karen. We’re expecting the next piece of bad news to be that the FBI will be charging Mrs. Sypher with a crime. [Courier]
Public Divorce Part II: Back on March 26, JCPS superintendent Sheldon Berman filed for divorce from his wife of 18 years. They’ve got three sons (17, 15, 11) and he said he hopes to keep it quiet and private. We agree. [Courier]
Still Something There: Police have arrested two of the white males involved in that early-morning attack near a U of L dorm, charging them with minor counts of robbery and assault. One involved stealing a cell phone. An African-American coed is facing an assault charge. The school continues to investigate the incident. [WLKY-TV]
Karmic Payback: Check out the Herald-Leader story on Louisville’s Green Building, including our first glance at the “karmic payback” phrase coined by Gill Holland. [H-L]
Check the Promo: I heard a WLKY promo today touting its ratings leadership, explaining it had the top-rated morning newscast. Technically, that’s true. The station’s Sunday morning news was the single highest-rated morning program in the market, though WHAS-TV is the weekday leader.
A Little Off: It’s been a few years since we’ve gone to the They’re Off Luncheon, so we were suprised to learn that the big event kicking off the Derby Festival, held last Friday, no longer includes a Mint Julep with every ticket. Really.
Happy Ending?: Thanks to Dick Irby for continuing to follow the ongoing saga of that Javanon soccer building that went up illegally. Today the zoning board had to decide whether or not to order it torn down because its construction violated regulations. The building stays, but the club has to abide by 17 new restrictions. [Fox41]
Fingers Walk Online: Today’s sign of the disappearance of print — the Public Service Commission said it was OK for Cincinnati Bell to discontinue printing phone books for the majority of its customers. They’ll have to go online like everybody else. [press release, PSC]
