Sunrise to Go: Tuesday, March 11

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Here are 10 things Kentuckiana will be talking about today:

1: Bridge Closed: The Milton-Madison Bridge was unexpectedly closed this morning after a worker was injured due to a steel bearing being dislodged. That worker is expected to be okay, but engineers aren't sure about the stability of the bridge.

2: Beautiful Day- The weather will hit the 70s today, but don't get too used to it yet. We will see a dip in the temps starting Wednesday, but warmer weather will return. Expect some thunderstorms coming our way.

3: Graduation - Graduation dates for 24 Jefferson County Public Schools are still in limbo. The JCPS Board had every intention of setting the dates at Monday night's meeting, but that all changed thanks to a push in Frankfort to help districts with missed snow days.

4: Snow Days -  School districts, a handful of which have been closed nearly as often as they've been open this winter, would not have to make up some snow days under a proposal poised to advance in Kentucky's House.

5: Arrested - A 14-year-old student at Shelby County High School was arrested after allegedly putting a knife to a classmate's throat.

6: Two Arrested -Two men are behind bars charged with the beating death of a man in Louisville's Portland neighborhood.

7: Uninvited - A woman who lives out of town told Louisville Metro police a man she hired to make repairs at a property she owns in Louisville took her money without doing the work and moved into the vacant home without her knowledge.

8: Alzheimer's - There is a local push to find a cure for a debilitating disease. Chances are you know someone who had or is battling Alzheimer's disease. It's the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. New research suggests Alzheimer's may be responsible for more deaths than you might think.

9:Housing - Downtown Louisville's newest public housing development is keeping its old name. But Smoketown's new Sheppard Square will include apartments for those with higher incomes too.

10: Training - A group of police officers got to take what they've been learning and put it to work in a real-world setting in a place most of us are very familiar with. The 22 silos that sit along Interstate 65 have been there so long that most of us don't give them a second thought.
