When Jolie Ritzo was looking for day care for her son Cannon in Falmouth, Maine, she checked out as many centers as she could.

She was looking for a place with the right feel.

"Most importantly, the people who are providing the care are loving and kind, nurturing and interested in developing these little beings," she says.

There was one center in town that had a great reputation, but it was so pricey, Ritzo says, "It would break the bank."

Hundreds gathered at Lexington Lafayette High School Monday night to pay tribute to the life of Trinity Gay.  The 15-year-old died early Sunday after being hit during an exchange of gunfire.

Prayers, candles, and airborne balloons accompanied pleas for unity in the effort to reduce gun violence.

Sentencing Project

Tuesday was the last day to register to vote in the upcoming election, but a new report from a voting rights advocacy group shows that 1 in 4 black Kentuckians will not be able to participate because of a felony conviction.  

Residents in wet precincts across McCracken County will no longer be forbidden from buying alcohol on Election Day.

The McCracken Fiscal Court voted unanimously Monday to repeal the county's longtime ban.

Commissioner Bill Bartleman says the ban originated in the 1920s or 1930s, when most voting locations were in bars or saloons and some candidates would bribe voters with alcohol before they entered the voting booths.
