Sunrise to Go: Thursday, July 24

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

1: Cooler: A cold front has passed through bringing cooler temperatures and lower humidity for today. We will be under the clouds for the morning with a few sprinkles possible, but those clouds clear during the afternoon, so you’ll need your sunglasses driving home from work late this afternoon.

2: 911: An 8-year-old boy told his mother, “You’re going to kill me,” as she allegedly strangled him with a rope. That’s what a Louisville Metro Police arrest report said after the arrest of Kimberly Anderson, 40, for attempted murder and criminal abuse. On the afternoon of July 22, officers were dispatched to the 6900 block of Rock Hollow Drive after Anderson called police, saying she strangled the little boy. Anderson told officers she contemplated killing the victim with a knife or a rope, but finally decided on the rope because he would "just pass out," the report said. She went on to explain that she put the rope around his neck for about 30 seconds and the boy turned blue in the face and said, “You’re going to kill me.”

3: Statement: A family member of a Nelson County woman and her teenage daughter, both of whom were murdered in April, released an emotional statement to the public on Wednesday. According to their death certificates, Kathy Netherland, 48, was shot multiple times, and her 16-year-old daughter Samantha was beaten in the head on April 21 at their home in the Botland community. Both of them suffered cuts to their necks.

4: Chase: Some of the tactics Jeffersontown police officers used to stop a suspect during Tuesday's pursuit may appear as if the officer just rammed their cruiser into the suspect's car. Instead, officers executed PIT maneuvers that brought a very dangerous situation to a safe conclusion.

5: Fast Food Robberies: They are popular, successful and most of the time they are safe places to be, but now police are investigating the third fast food robbery in as many weeks.

6: Ft. Knox: An online petition is seeking to stop the Army from eliminating more jobs at Fort Knox. There are plans for the Army to draw down the amount of troops nationally to 420,000 by 2020. About 7,600 positions would be cut from Fort Knox, including the 3rd Brigade Combat Team of 3,500 soldiers which has already been inactivated, according to the Supplemental Programmatic Environmental Assessment released June, 2014.

7: Social Media: Kentucky House Speaker Greg Stumbo caused a stir Wednesday when he appeared to write on social media that he had been removed from the White House. “Just got thrown out of the White House after a shouting match with the administration over coal,” was the message that appeared on Stumbo’s Twitter account.

8: Internet: Ultra high-speed internet is one step closer to becoming more widespread in Louisville. Members of the Metro Public Works Committee have approved several franchises to lay fiber optic cable in the Metro.

9: Second-hand Shopping: What happens to military blankets, Humvees, kitchen equipment and forklifts once service members don't need it anymore? At law enforcement offices across the country, the equipment is seeing a second life.

10: Food Truck: It was one of the most talked about WAVE 3 News investigations in years -- food trucks: clean or dirty? WAVE 3 News Troubleshooter Eric Flack's hidden camera story last July stirred a fiery response. Now, a new report out this summer is casting the food truck debate in a whole new light.
