Rick Howlett hosted our weekly news round up today and we dug into the meaty stories of the week.  Devin Katayama discussed the start of class at JCPS and bus route performanceGabe Bullard explained the Insight Cable sale and the recent bankruptcy hearing with the Louisville Orchestra.  Phillip Bailey talked about the attempt to postpone Judy Green’s upcoming trial due to a hospitalization, as well as campaign news with Todd P’pool, Jack Conway, and David Williams.  Gabe and Devin dissected the unusual case of the Australian collar bomber, arrested this week in La Grange, Kentucky.  And Erica Peterson phoned home from Eastern Kentucky while on an EPA tour of communities affected by coal mining.

We checked in with David Weidner of MarketWatch to get caught up on the latest gyrations on Wall Street and the economy.  Plus, there was a conversation on social network privacy with tech writer, Neal Ungerleider.  And finally, a radio portrait of the first day of the Kentucky State Fair.
