FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A judge has ordered Kentucky State University to let the attorney general examine some documents about alleged sexual misconduct of some of the school's employees. Andy Beshear wanted to view the documents before deciding if they should be made public. University officials refused. Judge Thomas Wingate ruled not letting Beshear look at the documents could thwart the public interest of transparency in government.

GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) - A Canadian horse watched television for the first time at a pet-friendly Kentucky motel. Lindsey Partridge of Ontario, Canada, told The Lexington Herald-Leader she stopped to check in Oct. 4 at the Super 8 in Georgetown on her way to compete in the Retired Racehorse Project's Thoroughbred Makeover competition. Partridge says she received approval when she jokingly inquired of the clerk if the motel's pet-friendly policy would apply to her horse.
