Matt Dressman, former chairman of the city's audit committee, accepted a new position at work that may require him to be out of town for long periods of time prompting his decision to exit. Dressman's announcement followed the withdrawal of incumbent Shawn Masters. A statement from Dressman is at the link.

CRITIC OF JOHN CALIPARI BECOMES AN ALLY:
With Calipari calling for specific reforms to make it more likely such players stay in school longer than a year, he's won a surprising ally inDavid Ridpath, an assistant professor of sports administration at Ohio University and an outspoken critic of one-and-done. "I find myself agreeing with John Calipari more than I ever thought I would," Ridpath said last week. "I thought he was right on target, and I was thinking, 'Gosh, I agree with this guy.'"

KENTUCKY WOMEN KICK ASS, BUT WE ALREADY KNEW THAT

Did you know that the Bluegrass State had so many kick-ass lady movie stars?
