Sunrise to Go: Wednesday, March 26

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

1: Sunshine: We are starting off on a cold note with some teens in the region. The sunshine today will at least make it "feel" somewhat better outside. Northerly winds, however, will keep a cap on how warm we get. It appears mid 40s may be the best we can do.

2: Social Support: Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer called for increased social media action after waves of teenagers descended on Waterfront Park and Broadway Saturday night committing crimes.

3: Race Role: Louisville's Chiefs of Community Building and of Metro Police maintain that officers' observations, security camera video, and social media traffic make clear that race played no role in Saturday night's roving violence that began at Waterfront Park

4: New Overnight: One person was taken to the hospital after crashing into a church.Officers responded to the Restoration Christ Fellowship Church, near Iroquois Park, on Saint Andrew's Church Road around 2:00 Wednesday morning. The car went through the building. It's not clear what caused the crash or how badly the drive was injured.

5: Basketball: Almost as legendary as the Cards and Cats on the basketball court are the celebrations by fans of both schools after a big win. When the Cards won the national championship last year, Cardinal Towne erupted. The year before, Cats fans flooded Lexington streets and torched a piece of household furniture or two when UK brought the national title home.

6: Pipeline: A Franklin County judge ruled Tuesday that the Bluegrass Pipeline's developers can't take land to build the planned line. "The transportation of hazardous liquids interstate through Kentucky to the Gulf Coast does not justify granting a private company the right to condemn private property," Circuit Court Judge Phillip Shepherd wrote in his decision.

7: Hoops Oops: Sen. Mitch McConnell's latest campaign video hit all the necessary Kentucky high points: horse racing, bluegrass - and Duke basketball? The campaign was scrambling Tuesday morning to remove an online video that features a split-second clip of Duke basketball players celebrating a national championship.

8: House Fire: Several firefighters fought for nearly four hours to put out flames after a home caught fire in Eastwood. According to MetroSafe, the fire was reported in the 300 block of Longview Park Place at 5:17 p.m. Tuesday. The owner of the home, Sheri Huff, had just stepped out of the shower when she smelled smoke and heard an explosion.

9: Hiking for a Cause: Ricky Harney has teamed up with Kosair Children's Hospital and starting Wednesday, he will hike the Pacific Crest Trail, 2,663 miles, from Mexico to Canada. His goal is to bring awareness to child abuse and get people talking. Click the link to find out how you can help!

10: Dog Returns Home: A dog named Sassy went missing 17 months ago from her Kentucky family. They had lost hope until they received a phone call all the way from Pennsylvania saying Sassy was found, safe and sound.
