Today in ‘Headlines that are too crazy to make up’: a Madison County man was arrested yesterday after running around his neighbor’s yard naked. According to the arrest citation, when police asked 24-year-old Billy Hisle to put his shorts on, he said he was scared to because worms were coming from his genitals. 

As you might imagine, police said Hisle was hallucinating, unsteady on his feet, and had slurred speech. His neighbor called the police after Hisle started screaming and beating on their front door, presumably about the worms he believed were coming from his genitals.

Hisle was charged with second-degree disorderly conduct, first-degree indecent exposure and public intoxication of a controlled substance. He was placed in the Madison County Detention Center.

Last year, 79-year-old Samuel Little confessed to murdering 93 individuals – almost all women – from 1970 and 2005. And then on Sunday, the FBI confirmed 50 of those murders, including one in Covington, KY in 1984.

In an interview with the FBI, Little confirmed the killing of a a “dishwater blonde” after meeting her outside a bar in downtown Columbus, OH.

“She’s white. Blonde hair. Dishwater, dishwater blonde they call it. And short,” he said.

After meeting her in Columbus, Little said the female asked him to take her to Miami and stopped in Covington along the way.

“Yeah, she did give you a hippy feeling. I think she was some kind of hippie, yeah,” Little said. “We got to Covington and then we continued through Covington. And there was a park that they were having a festival in. And she heard the music and–that band in there. And by her being a hippie type, she ‘whoa’ she want to get to that.”

After being pulled over by a police officer, Little then drove to the top of a nearby hill and strangled her in the backseat of his car.

“She was like partially concealed by the vegetation,” Little said. “I left her there.”

According to the report, Little explained to the FBI that he has a photographic memory and has been sketching his victims during his confessions.

This was the woman he described as the one he murdered in Covington:

Apple announces $250 million investment in Harrodsburg technology company

Apple is investing $250 million in a manufacturing and technology company located in Harrodsburg, KY.

The technology giant announced on Tuesday morning that the investment to Corning Inc., which has a research and development center and manufacturing hub in Harrodsburg, would be dedicated to the innovation of scratch-resistant glass made for the iPhone, Apple Watch, and iPad.

“Apple and Corning’s rich history dates back more than a decade, and our partnership revolutionized glass and transformed the technology industry with the first iPhone,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer. “This award underscores Apple and Corning’s shared belief in the vital role that ingenuity plays in creating industry-leading products, and the pride that both companies take in applying American innovation and advanced manufacturing to solve some of the world’s toughest technology challenges.”

Today’s award builds on the $200 million the company received from Apple’s Advanced Manufacturing Fund in May 2017.

Back in 2007, Apple and Corning became product development partners, with the Harrodsburg facility has played a key role in delivering glass solutions for the iPhone to replace the scratch-prone plastic covers. According to the release, some of the most important innovations in glass have happened at the Kentucky plant — glass for every generation of iPhone and Apple Watch, and many generations of iPad, have all been made in the Harrodsburg facility. Since iPhone launched in 2007, Apple has spent nearly $3 billion with Corning on the glass used in iPhone, Apple Watch and iPad.

Apple also confirmed that the glass for the new iPhone 11 set to release this week was also made in Harrodsburg with the Corning’s own Gorilla Glass.

According to the official release, the award will go to “capital investments, new technology, and process development.”

“The Harrodsburg facility serves as Corning’s global glass technology center, working closely with scientists at Sullivan Park in Corning, New York, to develop advanced glass solutions for next-generation technologies,” the release said. “Apple’s investment has helped to ensure the facility’s reputation as a global center of excellence, and supports the nearly 1,000 Corning jobs created by the Apple business. The team of nearly 400 highly skilled employees in Harrodsburg averages 14 years of experience, with Corning consistently rated one of Kentucky’s top places to work. Corning has been a part of the fabric of the Harrodsburg community for more than 65 years and the plant there is Corning’s longest-running US-based manufacturing facility.”

The East Regional Semifinals are set in the 2019 KSR Food Bracket

The East Regional Semifinals are set in the 2019 KSR Food Bracket

After jumping out to a hot start in the 2019 KSR Food Bracket on Wednesday morning, we now have four representatives in the Sweet 16 set following today’s show.

This morning, Cumberland legend “Green Bay” joined Kentucky Sports Radio to help decide who will get out of the Round of 32 in the East region.

The matchups?

  • (1) McDonald’s vs. (9) Hardee’s
  • (5) Fazoli’s vs. (4) Popeye’s
  • (6) Skyline vs. (3) Cracker Barrel
  • (10) Rally’s vs. (2) Waffle House

And unlike yesterday’s clean sweep of favorites coming out on top in the East, we had one upset this morning.

McDonald’s knocked out Hardee’s to keep its status as the No. 1 overall seed alive, who will now take on five-seed Fazoli’s in the next round.

In the bottom of the region, the Sunrise Samplers of Cracker Barrel knocked out Skyline and its delicious presentation of coneys and five-ways.

Two-seed Waffle House also scattered, smothered, and covered its way to the next round, where they will take on three-seed Cracker Barrel for a spot in the Elite Eight.

Take a look at the updated bracket as it stands today:

Tomorrow, Matt Jones and the KSR crew will break down yet another region during their live show at MediVet in Nicholasville.

Go Cats.
