NEW YORK (AP) - Papa John's founder John Schnatter says the pizza chain doesn't know how to handle a "crisis based on misinformation" and his agreement to step down as chairman was a mistake. Schnatter says the board asked him to cede the post without "any investigation," according to a letter his representative says was sent to the board Saturday. The move came after Forbes reported that Schnatter used a racial slur during a media training session, prompting Papa John's to publicly distance itself from him.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky horse racing regulators have approved the sale of Ellis Park racetrack to a group that now has a minority ownership stake in the track.

ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) - A man has pleaded not guilty in Kentucky to killing a woman he met at the massive "Rainbow Family" counterculture gathering in a Georgia forest. News outlets report 20-year-old Joseph Bryan Capstraw was arraigned Tuesday in Hardin Circuit Court.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - California and 17 other states that sued the Trump administration over its decision to cut off Affordable Care Act subsidies say a workaround has largely succeeded.

The states say they have protected subsidized consumers by allowing insurers to raise premiums on some plans offered on health care exchanges.
