LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A jury in Louisville says a former priest convicted of felony sex abuse charges in Louisville should serve a 15-year prison sentence. James Schook's attorneys had asked for a more lenient sentence since the 66-year-old has late-stage cancer and other health problems.

MILTON, Ky. (AP) - Traffic is crossing the Ohio River between Milton, Ky., and Madison, Ind., again, thanks to the reopening of the U.S. 421 bridge a week after the span was slid into place from temporary supports. Some work on the project remains, and the bridge has a 20 mph speed limit.
