Kentucky lawmakers are reviewing a proposal to add middle schools athletics to the Kentucky High School Athletic Association's oversight. It would mark the first time Kentucky middle schools fell under state regulation.

The Hopkinsville Police Department has arrested two 13-year-olds and charged them with terroristic threatening for writing a bomb threat note at North Drive Middle School. Police arrested the boys yesterday afternoon after a teacher and a student found the note in the school hallway. Both confessed to school staff on scene and again at the Hopkinsville Police Department.
