Sunrise to Go: Wednesday, July 30

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

1:Warm-Up: Our temperatures will be staying below normal for this time of year; however, they will be a bit warmer than yesterday as we return to the 80s. You’ll see a mixture of clouds and sun today with dry weather and low humidity. Most of the area will be dry tomorrow although we may see a sprinkle. We have a slight chance of a shower or storm for Friday and Saturday with dry and sunny weather to follow.

2: Indictment: The Clark County Sheriff found himself on the other side of the law after a federal grand jury returned an eight count indictment against him. Danny Rodden, 60 of Jeffersonville, is accused of misconduct involving a prostitute. The alleged incidents happened in 2013, but the U.S. Attorney Office for the Southern District of Indiana said the conduct is coming to light now thanks to an informant in a larger investigation.

3: Cheerleader: Sadness lingers across the University of Louisville campus one day after a student and member of the cheerleading squad was found dead. The body of Dani Cogswell, 22, was discovered around 9 a.m. July 28 yesterday inside her off-campus apartment at Cardinal Towne. Louisville Metro Police homicide detectives and UofL police are conducting a joint investigation, but do not suspect foul play in Cogswell's death.

4: Wreck: Police say a car struck a concrete culvert after leaving the road, injuring the driver and killing the woman riding with him. The driver, a man about 40 years old, was taken to the hospital with injuries that police said were not life-threatening. Police said the woman who died was in her 60s. The accident happened near the 9900 block of National Turnpike. Police believe speed was a factor.

5: Fast-Food: The Louisville Metro Police Department has released surveillance photos of two men who held up a fast food restaurant and pistol whipped an employee in east Louisville early Tuesday morning. The men seen holding up the McDonald's at 1100 S. Hurstbourne Parkway are dressed in dark clothing, similarly to the men who have held up other fast food restaurants in the area in recent weeks.

6: Harrods Creek: On May 21, 2014, Harrods Creek was flooding. Not with rainwater. It was flooding with human sewage -- “solids,” as they call them in the water pollution business, bobbing and blanketing Harrods Creek as far as the eye could see.

7: Outlet Mall: More than 40,000 people are expected to check out a new outlet mall opening Thursday, but officials are hoping to keep traffic moving as smoothly as possible.

8: Child Care: Next week is a big week for thousands of parents who have had to quit their jobs to care for their children. Kentucky's Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) starts taking applications next week. It was phased out last year. Now that it's back, parents who found it made more economic sense to stay home than pay for child care will get the help they need to go back to work.

9: School Supplies: It's a huge expense and a hot button issue in some school districts: those long back-to-school shopping lists. The Kentucky Auditor took action to try to cut back what parents of Jefferson County Public Schools students are required to pay for. Still, all the pencils, erasers and notebooks can really add up. One online shopping blogger has come up with some easy money-saving tips that might make that back to school bill at least a little easier to swallow.

10: Haunted House: Our destination was a Victorian home in the quiet town of Mitchell, Indiana - 3,700 square feet with crystal chandeliers, four poster beds and stained glass. No one lives in the stately home now, but the residence is never empty.
