The good, the bad, and the weird

The Good

The Kentucky Educational Television Network (KET) was awarded two regional Emmy Awards for its documentary “Where the River Bends: A History of Northern Kentucky.” The program follows the history of Northern Kentucky from the arrival of Indians through the Civil War and ends in present day Kentucky.

The Bad

A sex charge has been dropped against Otis “Bullman” Hensley Jr. He was arrested after proposing to trade “a good fattening hog” for two female children in a supermarket. “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard him say that to people,” Hensley’s wife said. A two-time candidate for governor, Hensley was released after spending three days in Harlan County jail before released on a $15,000 cash bond.

The Weird

Police in Ocala, Fla. arrested Frankie Lewis, 48, the morning of Aug. 24. Officers say Lewis pulled a knife on church members who wouldn’t give him butter during the morning buffet. He fled on a bicycle after being hit with a wooden board by a church member. Officers quickly caught him and charged Lewis with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
