The Byline rundown for today:
At the top - Only one proposal for development of the Kentucky Kingdom site is known to have been submitted. Ed Glasscock, of the team led by Ed Hart, joins us to go over the nuts and bolts of their proposal, review all the numbers, and give a preview of park amenities if their plan is chosen.
13:30 - WFPL's Phillip Bailey and Kenny Colston of Kentucky Public Radio discuss Senate President David Williams judicial appointment. (Our broadcast occurred just before Williams was officially offered the judicial post).

They also discuss the lawsuit seeking to remove state senate candidate Chris Thieneman from the ballot based on a residency question.
