Here's hoping for rain!!

I didn't really think I'd ever be the one to say that, but my yard – like a lot of yours – needs some water!! WAVE 3 Chief Meteorologist Kevin Harned has some rain in his forecast, but not just yet.  He'll let us all in on when our chances go up when you join Scott Reynolds and me for WAVE 3 News at 11!

Did you hear about how Lonnie Coy got caught, eight months after escaping from the Hardin County Detention Center??  A man in Grayson county saw the standoff with police as it happened and he tells WAVE 3's Katie Bauer about his surprise when he found out who'd been living nearby.

It looks like more problems could be on the way for a Metro councilwoman.  We'll have the latest on the possibility of a police investigation into Barbara Shanklin.

Plus, what's behind the UK Wildcats' decision to dump their annual men's basketball game in Freedom Hall?  WAVE 3's Connie Leonard gets some answers.

We'll see you after Love in the Wild for WAVE 3 News at 11!!
