Sunrise to Go: Wednesday, August 13

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

1: First Day: Cooler and less humid weather feels like a nice break this morning. We will see plenty of sunshine today with temperatures warming to the lower 80s, which is below normal for this time of year. We will have another pleasant night as the humidity stays low. Temperatures will start warming up as we head through the second half of the week taking us to the 90s by next week. Our next chance of rain will be early next week as our next storm system moves through WAVE Country.

2: JCPS: An estimated 102,000 returning and first-time students will rise-and-shine earlier than usual and hit the books on Wednesday, Aug. 13 as Jefferson County Public Schools open for the 2014-2015 school year. Here are the top five things JCPS parents should know on the first day of school:

3: Shooting: A man is in critical condition after he was shot near Goldsmith Lane, according to Louisville Metro police. Louisville Metro Police Department spokeswoman Alicia Smiley said the victim, who is in his 30s, was shot outside an apartment building in the 2000 block of Terril Lane around 12:10 a.m. Wednesday.

4: Shooting: Louisville Metro police are investigating after a man was shot and killed in the Russell neighborhood. According to MetroSafe, the shooting was reported in the 500 block of Dr. W.J. Hodge Street at 10 p.m. Tuesday.

5: Road Rage: A Louisville Metro police report obtained by WAVE 3 News has provided the name of the second man involved in a July 8 road rage incident that ended with the other driver dead. The incident started shortly after Noon when the report says Justin D. Beeler, 29, of Louisville, and Michael D. Nevins, 43, of Hodgenville, KY, were involved in an argument at Sissy's Liquors, 3947 S. 5th Street.

6: Firefighter: The chief of Glendale's volunteer fire department expressed gratitude on Tuesday for the outpouring of support following the death of firefighter Jonathan French in the line of duty.

7: Women: A group has bought billboard space for a women's issues advertisement near from Louisville International Airport after airport officials rejected a request to put the ad in the passenger terminal. UltraViolet, a nonprofit organization that promotes women's rights, will highlight the gender pay gap on a billboard along Interstate 264 near Phillips Lane that will go up by Monday.

8: Training: This year, along with reading, math and science, some of your students will get a lesson that could have a much more immediate impact. It's a different way to get children and their teachers to recognize abuse. This training makes it clear, all of us need our eyes open.

9: Property: Lots of land have been sitting vacant in St. Matthews since the 1980s. Many people believed the lots could not be built on, but it turns out that's not the case. Now, up to four lucky bidders could soon call the lots of land home.

10: Camera: Many people will never know the history behind thrift store finds. Each piece is inevitably marked with a story. One man's recent purchase provided him a glimpse into a family's precious moments. Joe Lynch didn't need a top-of-the-line video camera. For five bucks, he couldn't resist picking up a turn-of-the-millennium RCA model at a Goodwill in Clarksville, Indiana.
