Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin is under fire for use of a state-owned plane. The state’s two largest newspapers are calling for more transparency on the issue.

Meanwhile, the race for Kentucky Attorney General heats up with a lawsuit alleging that the Republican candidate should be considered ineligible. And a Democratic official is also facing scrutiny. Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes saw her father convicted of illegal campaign contributions, and this week, authorities seized a computer from her office.

In Columbus, state lawmakers continue to push forward with proposed gun-related legislation.

Locally, hundreds of people who invested money in house-flipping opportunities may have been ripped off.

And WVXU is partnering with the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music to produce a radio production of Rod Serling’s 1955 baseball comedy, O'Toole from Moscow, which will feature the daughter of The Twilight Zone creator as studio announcer.
