Sunrise to Go: Monday, June 30

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

1:Heat: The 90s return today and tomorrow, then temperatures will be cooling down as we head into the holiday weekend.  An isolated storm is possible this afternoon with the heat and humidity; however, most of the area will stay dry. 

2: Found: Indiana State Police searched for John Carpenter since June 24 believing he shot three men, killing two of them the day before. Wednesday night Carpenter's car was found abandoned. Police knew he had to be nearby. By Saturday, they zeroed in on roughly three square miles of hilly farmland near Heidelberg Road, north of Fairview Church Road. Carpenter was found inside a barn on top of the loft above the hay. Hensley said he didn't put up a fight. He was shirtless, starving and thirsty.

3: Grimes: Kentucky graduates leave college with more than $20,000 in debt on average, and Alison Lundergan Grimes is hopeful that her remedy could be another wedge issue as she tries to pry Mitch McConnell out of the Senate. Grimes, touting her plan for college affordability, was joined at the University of Louisville's Red Barn by Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, whose bill to allow some student loans to be refinanced died in the Senate in June.

4: Charges: The police chief of Hodgenville is accused of warning the former mayor, who was under investigation for abuse of public trust and theft, that Kentucky State Police intended to arrest him and advising the mayor to leave town. Chief Steve Johnson faces charges of official misconduct and hindering prosecution or apprehension, according to court documents.

5: Fireworks: The manager at TNT Fireworks in Jeffersonville showed us his best sellers. The bigger the boom, the better. But before you buy, what's fair game in Indiana may not be just a few miles away. Fireworks rules across Indiana follow state laws. Meanwhile in Kentucky, each municipality can set its own fireworks rules. Finding those out may not be so easy. Louisville's ordinance is listed on the city's website. It's 24 pages long, parts of it scratched out.

6: Parking: Louisville's parking authority will increase rates at all of its meters and will begin enforcement on Saturdays for the first time in memory, administrators said Friday. Rates will increase by 25 cents at parking meters, and the Parking Authority of River City also plans to raise prices in some garages to move Louisville closer to what other cities charge, PARC Director Tiffany Smith said.

7: Speedway: Brad Keselowski dominated the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race Saturday night to become Kentucky Speedway's first repeat winner. The Penske Racing driver and 2012 race winner followed his record-breaking pole effort to lead 199 of 267 laps and earn his second victory this season and 12th of his career.

8: Crash: One person has died and a second person is injured after they were involved in a single vehicle crash on Interstate 71 near Interstate 264/Watterson Expressway. The Jefferson County Coroner's Office said Robin Brickey, 45, of Louisville died at University of Louisville Hospital after being thrown from the car. She was not wearing a seatbelt, deputy coroner Eddie Robinson said.

9: Jobs: Thousands of Louisville teens are employed this summer thanks in part to a community partnership called SummerWorks. Led by Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, the program introduces youth to potential career paths by exposing people ages 16 to 21 to real work experiences.

10:  Make-a-Wish: Help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions by participating in Make-A-Wish Week on WAVE 3 News. All this week, from Monday, June 30 through Sunday, July 6, WAVE 3 News is partnering with Make-A-Wish to raise awareness about the organization's important work and to raise money to make the dreams of sick children come true.
