WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) - A fire marshal says a fire has destroyed a barn and left four horses dead at a Kentucky farm. Clark County Fire Marshal Ernest Barnes tells news outlets the fire occurred early Sunday at Dragonsmeade Farm in Winchester. Barnes says the barn also contained apartments for farm workers but no one was in them at the time of the fire.

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - A new state marker in southwestern Indiana honors an archaeologist who championed efforts to preserve a series of ancient Native American earthen mounds. The marker was dedicated Saturday near the Angel Mounds State Historic Site in Evansville, in front of Glenn Black's former home. The 603-acre site encompasses 11 mounds that were once part of a fortified, walled Native American city. The site's importance may have been lost forever without Black's decades of work at the site. He died in 1964.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Former fighter pilot Amy McGrath says her military service would help her "cut through" the political discord dividing Washington if she's elected to Congress. The Democrat challenging Republican incumbent Andy Barr in Kentucky's 6th Congressional District was the keynote speaker at a statewide Democratic dinner Saturday night in Louisville.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The FBI's top leader in Kentucky says she worries the agency's ability to carry out its mission could be hurt by any decline in public approval. Amy Hess is the special agent in charge of the FBI in Kentucky. She told reporters Friday she hasn't seen any impact yet. But she acknowledges "a lot has happened nationally" in two years.
