  • "Michael VonAllmen's 30-year 'nightmare' ended Friday in a Jefferson County courtroom when a judge threw out his 1982 conviction, ruling that there was clearly enough evidence to exonerate him." [Courier-Journal]
  • "Under fire from preservationists, the owners of the Iron Quarter property on Main Street are offering up a new $48 million plan that would save the fronts of the century-old whiskey warehouses and build twin hotels a half-block from the new downtown arena." [Courier-Journal]
  • "Yesterday, the 14-member Louisville-Southern Indiana Bridges Authority was supposed to hold its monthly meeting, but it didn’t. From what I’ve been told, they didn’t appreciate the attention they’d been getting from the media, which isn’t shocking and could be understandable were it not for the fact that they appear to be breaking Kentucky state law by retreating to a subterranean cave."
