Sunrise to Go: Tuesday, April 29

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

1: Storms: The morning and most of the afternoon will be dry and warm with partly sunny skies. After 5 p.m., a cold front approaches WAVE Country bringing scattered storms this evening and overnight with a slight risk of severe storms. We will be watching out for storms that could have damaging winds and large hail.

2: Tips: Kentucky State Police announced on Monday that they believe the person or persons inside a black Chevrolet Impala seen traveling from the Botland community of Nelson County into Bardstown on April 21 are responsible for the murders of a special education teacher and her 16-year-old old daughter.

3: Officer: A Taylorsville Police lieutenant was previously fired as a high school teacher over a romantic relationship with a student. The revelations about Lt. Richard Jewell are the most recent item to surface about the problematic pasts of Taylorsville officers. Another had been previously fired by Louisville Police after lying to investigators, while a third resigned from a law enforcement job while facing charges for a sex crime, a WAVE 3 News investigation revealed in February.

4: Cable: Comcast announced on Monday a series of subscriber swaps designed to help clear the way for regulatory approval of its acquisition of Time Warner Cable. Comcast and Charter are also exchanging 1.6 million subscribers each, carving up the country to give Charter a stronghold in Midwestern states where it faces less competition from AT&T and Verizon, including Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Missouri.

5: Dash Cam:  Officials with the Boone County Sheriff's Department have released dash cam footage and radio traffic from a deputy-involved shooting incident that left Samantha Ramsey, 19, dead early Saturday morning. Deputy Tyler Brockman was on another call on River Road before investigating a field party further down the road where Ramsey was located. One thing led to another, and that's when officials say Brockman fired four shots, killing Ramsey.

6: Park: Fun for all ages, or an accident waiting to happen? Injuries are mounting at indoor trampoline parks, including one in Louisville. Doctors have treated broken bones, torn ligaments and worse. Experts are not saying you or your kids should never step foot in a trampoline park. But the fact is, even the parks themselves admit the fun comes with risk.

7: Races: Alpha Energy Solutions won the 25th annual Kentucky Derby Festival Great Bed Races in the final heat of the competitive division Monday night at Broadbent Arena. Runner up Curtain Call Photo Booth, the 2013 winner, had been in the lead for the entire race until the final heat.

8: Family Tradition: Despite the amount of beds, there is something about the Kentucky Derby Festival Great Bed Races that keeps one family up at night, specifically the planning. As a team competing in the races for 18 years Monday's event at Broadbent Arena was about fun and family for the Cox's.

9: School Visit: For Senator Rand Paul, (R-KY), it wasn't a typical lunch meeting. Instead of gathering around a table with his constituents, the Kentucky Junior Senator spent Monday walking the halls of the West End School. With West End School Administrator Robert Blair leading the way, Senator Paul toured section after section of the West Louisville gem that's garnered national attention.

10: Derby: On Oaks and Derby rain and cooler weather can be expected. The good news, there is time to start thinking about making some adjustments to what you may be wearing. When you spend money to come to the Derby, you want to look good. Many people end up spending lots of money on an outfit, hat and shoes. The last thing you want is to be cold and wet. Remember, you can't bring umbrellas to the track. In 2013, there were major restrictions on what you could bring to the track, it's the same deal this year.
