That all ended abruptly on the night of September 28, 1941 with her brutal murder at the Lexington Country Club.  Author Beverly Bell explores the life and times of the female sports star and shines new light on her untimely death…still one of the most vexing cases in our city’s history.  She talks with WUKY's Alan Lytle about her journey writing “The Murder of Marion Miley” published by the University Press of Kentucky.

The U.S. Labor Department says more than 50,000 Kentucky residents applied for unemployment benefits last week. That's a slight increase from the prior week. It reflects ongoing struggles in the labor market even as the economy reopens in trying to recover from the coronavirus pandemic. The latest report Thursday said 53,738 Kentuckians submitted new jobless claims. That was up by more than 6,410 from the prior week. It halted what had been a recent downward trend in the number of Kentuckians applying for jobless aid.
