A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky's newly created Horse Racing
Commission is preparing to vote this summer on a steroid ban for the sport.
The commission met briefly Wednesday morning in Lexington to
swear in its new members. Gov. Steve Beshear last week disbanded
the previous Kentucky Horse Racing Authority and replaced it with the new group.
Commission members said the governor has indicated he wants swift movement on steroids. About 10 states have approved a ban,
but Kentucky is a notable holdout.
Racing commission executive director Lisa Underwood says she
expects a vote on the issue in August.
