Sunrise to Go: Wednesday, April 23

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

1: Waterfront Weather: You'll need the jacket today with cooler temperatures but plenty of sunshine. Warmer air from the south moves up into WAVE Country tomorrow boosting temperatures for tomorrow afternoon. A cold front approaches tomorrow night bringing a chance for showers and storms through Friday morning.

2: Waterfront Wednesday: 91.9 WFPK kicks off Waterfront Wednesday April 23 at 6:00. The first concert of the season launches with Moon Taxi, The Apache Relay and House Ghost. Waterfront Wednesday is a free monthly concert on the Big Four Lawn at Waterfront Park, located next to the Big Four Bridge.

3: Denim Day: Denim Day in the USA is a campaign that raises community awareness about the devastating impacts of sexual violence and how you can help bring these issues to light. Denim Day began in 1992 when an 18-year-old in Italy was raped by her driving instructor. She pressed charges and won her case, but the instructor appealed and the case went to the Italian High Court. In 1999 the court overturned the conviction with a member of the high court declaring that since the victim wore very tight jeans, the instructor could not have removed them himself; therefore, the victim must have willingly participated.

4: Camm Speaks:David Camm is set to address the public for the first time since being acquitted for the murder of his wife and children. Camm and Randy Steidl will be speaking at the Indiana State University campus about their cases. Steidl spent 17 years behind bars for a double murder before being exonerated.

5:  Nelson County: The identity of a woman who was found dead inside a home in Nelson County along with a 16-year-old has been released. According to Kentucky State Police Trooper Jeff Gregory, Kathy Netherland, 48, and the 16-year-old girl were pronounced dead at a home in the 5100 block of Springfield Drive around 10:40 a.m. Tuesday. Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene. Police aren't saying how the victims died or the manner of death just that there were obvious signs of trauma.

6: Exeter Street: Neighbors described Evelyn and Joseph Smith as a loving couple, proud and strong-willed, despite the challenges of age. Now, police wonder whether an argument in which neither would budge sparked the gunfire that left both wounded.

7: Prison Death: The doctor fired after an inmate's death at Kentucky State Penitentiary will keep his private practice but may hire a lawyer as the state's investigation continues, his wife said Tuesday. Steve Hiland was fired March 6, nearly two months after prisoner James Embry died of starvation. Besides Hiland, the state plans to fire a prison psychologist and her associate over the case, said Lisa Lamb, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Corrections.

8: Plea Deal: One of three teenagers charged in the deaths of three southern Indiana children in a house fire accepted a plea deal on Tuesday. Shelby Makowsky, 18, changed her plea from not guilty to guilty on a charge of conspiracy to commit arson.

9: Young:  An 18-year-old who was acquitted of his stepbrother's murder in August of 2013 and was recently taken into custody after he was accused of assaulting his live-in girlfriend is facing more charges. According to a police report filed by Louisville Metro police and court records, on Tuesday at 10:50 a.m. Josh Young was charged with retaliating against participant in legal process and fourth degree assault.

10: Churchill Downs: If you are making plans for Oaks and Derby in just a week and a half, and you think your to-do list is long, Churchill Downs has got you beat. The track opens up its Spring Meet Saturday night with a couple of big debuts planned for the big night. The final spit and polish routine at the track looks much different this year as a big renovation, expansion and addition get ready to make their debuts.
