Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman appears to use homophobic slur during live broadcast https://www.lex18.com/homepage-showcase/reds-broadcaster-thom-brennaman-appears-to-use-homophobic-slur-during-live-broadcast Homepage urn:uuid:9b68f5e7-32e1-0922-4d9b-be85d49ea6a4 Thu, 20 Aug 2020 01:10:54 +0000 Cincinnati Reds and Fox Sports Ohio broadcaster Thom Brennaman appeared to use a homophobic slur during a live broadcast Wednesday. Cincinnati Reds and Fox Sports Ohio broadcaster Thom Brennaman appeared to use a homophobic slur during a live broadcast Wednesday.Before highlighting a Reds pregame show, it appeared that an off-camera Brennaman said "one of the (expletive) capitals of the world" on the broadcast. It is unclear if he knew his microphone was on, or that he was broadcasting live.The Reds faced the Kansas City Royals in a double-header on Wednesday evening, their first game back since a player tested positive on Friday night.The video of Brennaman's alleged comment began circulating on social media later that night.Brennaman later apologized for his comment, stating “I made a comment earlier tonight that I guess went out over the air that I am deeply ashamed of,” Brennaman said. “If I have hurt anyone out there, I can’t tell you how much I say, from the bottom of my heart, I’m so very, very sorry. I pride myself and think of myself as a man of faith … I don’t know if I’m going to be putting on this headset again. I don’t know if it’s going to be for the Reds, I don’t know if it’s going to be for my bosses at Fox. I want to apologize to the people who sign my paycheck. For the Reds, for Fox Sports Ohio, for the people I work with, for anybody who I have offended here tonight. I can’t begin to tell you how deeply sorry I am. That is not who I am, it never has been. And I like to think that maybe I could have some people that can back that up. I am very, very sorry and I beg for your forgiveness.”He was removed from the broadcast immediately after. Local musicians providing free, virtual lessons for students https://www.lex18.com/homepage-showcase/local-musicians-providing-free-virtual-lessons-for-students Homepage urn:uuid:2bc4ba31-44e3-ef0e-7cf8-0e3edc20079f Tue, 18 Aug 2020 16:57:37 +0000 A group of local musicians is working to make sure no child or musical opportunity slips through the cracks. School plays a vital role in exposing kids to the arts, but with restrictions in place due to COVID-19, things like band or orchestra may not get the attention they would in a typical school year.But a group of local musicians is working to make sure no child or musical opportunity slips through the cracks. They have created the Virtual Beginning Band Project, providing free resources and lessons for schools and aspiring musicians.Project director Ginny Tutton has a doctorate in flute performance and has been playing for 25 years.It is fair to say music is Tutton’s life. So naturally, as schools begin to reopen, she became concerned about young, aspiring musicians and whether the pandemic will keep them from receiving the same musical exposure as she once did."I was thinking, ‘how on earth are they going to do this and do it safely for the students?'" Tutton said.So, she began to think about how she could help, not only reaching the kids but also taking any extra burden from teachers."It started off as a flute project where I wanted to offer the first six weeks or so of lessons and guidance for the flute,” Tutton said. “Then I thought, you know, if I'm willing to do this, I bet I know some other musicians who would help out, too."And she was right.Tutton, along with eight other musicians, has now partnered to create the Virtual Beginning Band Project. They are providing virtual lessons with the goal of ensuring that students who would have begun learning a new instrument this fall still have access to quality music instruction.Right now the materials are being made available only to schools, but the lessons will be made available to everyone in the coming weeks."The arts and music, in particular, can be really therapeutic and it's creative, but it's also sort of cerebral,” Tutton said. “It kind of keeps your mind occupied if you're worried about things. I really thought that everyone in the community could benefit from a little music."Between all nine musicians, nearly every instrument found in a school band is covered: flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, horn, trumpet, tuba and percussion.They teach everything from how to put the instrument together, to starting to play notes.It is all free, with the goal of reaching as many people as possible – all in the name of music.The other musicians involved are:Taylor McLellanChase MillerJonathan NickellAllison TuttonDr. Chase HawkinsDr. Bradley J.

AP FACT CHECK: Michelle Obama and the kids in ‘cages’ https://www.lex18.com/homepage-showcase/ap-fact-check-michelle-obama-and-the-kids-in-cages Homepage urn:uuid:75b67d2b-171a-2b92-0279-a38b2e88415f Tue, 18 Aug 2020 14:29:58 +0000 Michelle Obama assailed President Donald Trump on Monday for ripping migrant children from their parents and throwing them into cages, picking up on a frequent and distorted point made widely by Democrats. Michelle Obama assailed President Donald Trump on Monday for ripping migrant children from their parents and throwing them into cages, picking up on a frequent and distorted point made widely by Democrats.She’s right that Trump’s now-suspended policy at the U.S.-Mexico border separated thousands of children from their families in ways that had not been done before. But what she did not say is that the very same “cages” were built and used in her husband’s administration, for the same purpose of holding migrant kids temporarily.A look at her remark in the keynote address at the opening night of the remote Democratic National Convention:MICHELLE OBAMA, on Americans: “They watch in horror as children are torn from their families and thrown into cages.”THE FACTS: The reference to cages is misleading and a matter that Democrats have persistently distorted.Trump used facilities that were built during the Obama-Biden administration to house children at the border. They are chain-link enclosures inside border facilities where migrants were temporarily housed, separated by sex and age.At the height of the controversy over Trump’s zero-tolerance policy at the border, photos that circulated online of children in the enclosures generated great anger. But those photos — by The Associated Press — were taken in 2014 and depicted some of the thousands of unaccompanied children held by President Barack Obama.When that fact came to light, some Democrats and activists who had tweeted the photos deleted their tweets. But prominent Democrats have continued to cite cages for children as distinctive cruelty of Trump.The former first lady was correct, however, in addressing the removal of children from parents at the border.The Obama administration separated migrant children from families under certain limited circumstances, like when the child’s safety appeared at risk or when the parent had a serious criminal history.But family separations as a matter of routine came about because of Trump’s “zero-tolerance” enforcement policy, which he eventually suspended because of the uproar. Obama had no such policy. UK asking everyone on campus to complete daily COVID-19 screening https://www.lex18.com/homepage-showcase/uk-asking-everyone-on-campus-to-complete-daily-covid-19-screening Homepage urn:uuid:cc3d9768-a37e-67a0-df22-dd6ad1e85fd7 Mon, 17 Aug 2020 11:23:19 +0000 Beginning Monday, any student or faculty member who uses a campus facility at the University of Kentucky this fall is asked to fill out an online COVID-19 screening survey the day they plan to be on campus. Beginning Monday, any student or faculty member who uses a campus facility at the University of Kentucky this fall is asked to fill out an online COVID-19 screening survey the day they plan to be on campus.This survey will be "emailed directly into your inbox every morning. There's a big blue button that says 'complete daily screener.' From there, it opens up on a mobile-friendly website where you can complete it in less than three seconds if you're asymptomatic. Soon, in the next few weeks, we'll have a mobile app, in which you can complete this survey," explained UK Executive Director of Salesforce Operations Tyler Gayheart.But this survey will not alert professors about the status of their students' completion of the survey, or if one answers “yes” to any of the symptoms.Gayheart said, "It absolutely is on an honor system and we know that our students are up for that particular challenge to have the integrity to, you know, share with them, their symptoms are and keep people around them in our community safe."There also are not any consequences for not filling the survey out."I don't think we're saying right now that there's any hard consequences on not filling it out, but we trust that our community is participating and keeping this campus healthy and safe," said Gayheart. "We're making it really easy to make, you know, attesting to your symptoms on a daily basis as convenient and easy as possible."Gayheart explained the goal is to help direct those who answer "yes" to any symptom questions to the appropriate medical attention and keep the UK community safe throughout the semester."Remember, the daily screener is not a medical diagnosis, it is not a definitive answer about what your symptoms are. It is a cognitive daily reminder for individuals to be cognizant of their symptoms as it relates to COVID-19," he said. "And for those that are symptomatic, it triggers a technological process that a human or a person can follow up from the University health core to be able to drive them to additional services, whether it's to seek medical attention or to go monitor their symptoms further or seek testing options that are available to our community."

More restrictions are being lifted in Kentucky starting on Monday.The next phase of Healthy at Work includes allowing groups up to 50 people and bars to reopen.It's been more than three months since watering holes across the Bluegrass shut down to slow the spread of COVID-19.The oldest bar in Lexington has had to get pretty creative the past few months just to stay afloat."Chevy Chase Inn has been around for 86 years. Chevy Chase In-and-Out has been around for 103 days. It took 103 days to keep Lexington's oldest bar in business," said owner and bartender Keith Heathcoat.In order to stay in-business, Heathcoat they had to transform this bar into a makeshift liquor store, selling off their inventory.Because of that decision, come Wednesday, July 1, they will be able to reopen."Thankfully it has gotten us through. We are really negative in our bank account but we have gotten close enough that we are going to be able to make it. We didn't this bar was going to make it, but we are going to make it to opening day," said Heathcoat.Bars are officially able to reopen on June 29, but Heathcoat says he decided to wait until Wednesday to open just to make sure they are doing everything as safely as possible"We are so excited to actually be able to open our bar again and run it the way it's supposed to be. So on July 1, we are opening up at 2:00 and we are going to celebrate the fact that we are able to do this. But we are going to do it right. Socially distanced. We are going to do everything the government has asked and we are going to have fun while doing it, but we are going to do it the right way," said Heathcoat.The right way means several new changes. There will be disposable cups, limited capacity, and groups will be spread out.So while things may be different, after over 100 days of being closed, the changes are worth it.

Authorities were investigating a shooting Saturday night at a park in downtown Louisville, Kentucky, where demonstrators regularly gather to protest the death of Breonna Taylor.Louisville Police released a statement on Facebook, reporting that officers responded to a shots fired report at Jefferson Square Park around 9:00 on Saturday night.One person was pronounced dead at the scene according to police. Another shooting victim was found at the Hall of Justice, and taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.WDRB in Louisville reports video footage showed people running from the park, and that police say "multiple" people were injured.“Praying for our city,” tweeted Kentucky state Rep. Charles Booker of Louisville. The Democrat is running for his party’s nomination to challenge Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell in the fall.Taylor, a 26-year-old Black woman, was killed in her Louisville home in March by police who were serving a no-knock warrant. Protesters have been calling for the officers involved in her death to be charged.
