Kentucky COVID-19 Cases Heading Towards Another Record-Breaking Week Friday, Oct 9 2020 

'

Kentucky’s weeks-long escalation in COVID-19 cases continued Friday with 1,059 new cases.

Gov. Andy Beshear said another day with more than 1,000 cases means the state will likely break its record for weekly cases for a third straight week. Last week’s more than 6,000 cases topped the previous high that was just one week prior.

“We continue to be in another escalation of COVID-19 cases here in Kentucky,” he said. “This is the highest Friday in the last four weeks, and this will be our highest week ever when we finish it for number of new COVID-19 cases.”

Harvest Homecoming Vendors Dish Out Food Despite Festival’s Cancellation Friday, Oct 9 2020 

'

Harvest Homecoming isn’t happening this year, but that isn’t stopping some New Albany vendors from finding ways to dish out their crowd-favorite treats to would-be festival goers.

During a normal year, Harvest can bring up to half a million people to downtown New Albany. But organizers scrapped plans for the annual fall festival in June due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The cancellation meant vendors and small businesses would miss out on the financial windfall brought by the festival. It also meant residents and visitors to Southern Indiana wouldn’t get their hands on some of the food items that draw them to the festival every year.

Yola ft. Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby, Sheryl Crow & Jason Isbell “Hold On” Friday, Oct 9 2020 

'

We loved Yolas 2019 album Walk Through Fire, as well as her contributions as an honorary member of the supergroup The Highwomen.

Now Yola has shared a new benefit single featuring some of her fellow Highwomen (Brandi Carlile and Natalie Hemby), another honorary member, Sheryl Crow, on piano, as well as Jason Isbell on guitar.

Dave Cobb produced the track, which Yola calls a conversation between me and the next generation of young black girls. My mother’s advice would always stress caution, that all that glitters isn’t gold, and that my black female role models on TV are probably having a hard time. She warned me that I should rethink my calling to be a writer and a singerbut to me that was all the more reason I should take up this space. Hold On is asking the next gen to take up space, to be visible and to show what it looks to be young, gifted and black.

Opponents Of JCPS Tax Increase Say Entire 9% Tax Hike Invalid Friday, Oct 9 2020 

'

Opponents of a 9% property tax increase passed by the Jefferson County Board of Education (JCBE) say the entire increase is invalid.

Opponents who were already fighting a portion of the tax increase through a petition for a recall vote now claim the whole increase is illegal based on a technicality. Attorneys for the petitioners say the board violated a state statute they argue requires school boards to wait until the county tax roll has been certified, which happened on Aug. 25. The board passed the increase months earlier, on May 21.

JCBE’s failure to comply with these statutory requirements renders its attempted levy unlawful and a nullity. As such, JCBE has not levied a tax rate; there is no tax rate subject to recall, the complaint reads.

Failures In Historic Sewer Pipe Cause Traffic Headache On East Broadway Friday, Oct 9 2020 

'

History is right underneath your feet while driving down Broadway between south Second and Campbell streets in downtown Louisville, but unfortunately this bit of history is falling apart — brick by brick.

Contractors with Louisville’s Metropolitan Sewer District have discovered a pair of holes in the large brick sewer pipe beneath Broadway; a pipe completed in the year after the Civil War ended, 1866.

Workers are planning how best to repair the pipe, but considering how long past repairs have taken, it could take two months or longer fix, said Sheryl Lauder, MSD spokesperson.
