____ Executive Director Debra Hoskins resigns from EKU Center for the Arts. Hoskins resigned June 19, and no reason was given in the university’s statement. The question arose of whether EKU administration and regents or the center’s community operations board has authority over center personnel. Also, the university denied all Open Records requests for Hoskins’ personnel file, and the state attorney general ruled the documents are public, but the final decision will now be made in Madison Circuit Court.

____ William Tribble charged with killing great-grandmother in three-year old case. More than three years after JoAnn “Margie” Tribble was found dying from a head wound in the garage of her Teakwood Drive home, her great-grandson William Cody Tribble was charged with her murder. Although he was 17 at the time of the alleged crime, he will be tried as an adult.
