  • "Louisville Metro Parks Director Mike Heitz was suspended Tuesday as a result of a WAVE 3 Troubleshooter investigation. Troubleshooter Eric Flack documented Heitz drinking then driving in his city take-home vehicle on several occasions." [WAVE3]
  • "It appears the Big East is close to losing yet another school. West Virginia will be accepted to the Big 12 once there is formal approval, a source told Joe Schad of ESPN, and that could happen as early as Tuesday. The Mountaineers would replace Missouri, widely expected to leave the Big 12 for the SEC...Several weeks ago it appeared Louisville would be the front-runner to join. But the superior football program at West Virginia apparently made a big difference." [ESPN]
  • "Trainer James Bond believed Tizway was "an unbelievable racehorse" and was champing at the bit to show the rest of the world just how unbelievable at next week's Breeders' Cup Classic at Churchill Downs.
    He won't get that opportunity. Tizway's career came to an abrupt end Tuesday when he was diagnosed with a strain of the suspensory ligament of his left foreleg that will force him out of the Breeders' Cup. He will now be retired to stud at B. Wayne Hughes's Spendthrift Farm in Kentucky." [ESPN]
