Louisville news: The calling out of St. Matthews edition [News roundup]

  • "Kentucky faces a rising wave of state government retirees drawing from its beleaguered public pension funds even as fewer workers remain on the job to contribute to those funds. With financial pressure building, some lawmakers say the state might have promised retirees — some still in their 40s — a more generous deal than it now can afford to deliver." [Bluegrass Politics]
  • "Police arrested Sharinah Hickman, 30, on Sunday morning as she was hiding in the basement of the Massie Avenue house where the May incident occurred, said Det. Larry Alvey of the St. Matthews Police Department...Police believe Hickman drove Dante Watts to the home of Eric Woods, Watts' cousin, on May 25, then took Woods back to Watts' St. Matthews home. Watts bound his cousin's hands and ankles, hung him upside down in his basement and then beat and cut him for several hours, according to police." [Courier-Journal]
