Nothin' like a good bourbon in the summertime! - Cincinnati News, FOX19-WXIX TV

Nothin' like a good bourbon in the summertime!

Good morning!

What a great day to head outdoors!

Meteorologist Katy Morgan is telling us to expect sunny skies with highs hitting 90 degrees. Thankfully, humidity won't be an issue so if you have the chance, go out and enjoy the weather!

As always, Katy and Frank will be working hard this morning to bring you the latest weather conditions and a complete seven-day forecast starting at 4 AM!

A man in Hamilton is facing some serious charges this morning after he wrecked a stolen vehicle into a park shelter while charging a police cruiser doing 60 mph. Rob Williams and Sheila Gray will have all of the details, including the charges that 18-year-old John Fackey is facing at the estimated damages to the Crawford Woods Park shelter.

Kentucky Derby winner "I'll Have Another" is headed for a farm in Japan after being sold for a whopping $10 million! The famous colt retired with a tendon injury the day before he was set to run in the Belmont Stakes.

If you watched the All-Star game last night, you got to see one heck of a blow out by the National League! Even though our three Reds went hitless in Kansas City, the NL shut out the AL in an 8-0 win to secure home field advantage in the World Series.

Speaking of the Reds, our boys start the second half of the season at GABP this Friday when they take on the St. Louis Cardinals. First pitch is at 7:10.

Mmmm...who doesn't love a good bourbon? The folks from Woodford Reserve Distillery will be here at 8:15 with some tasty summer twists on the classic manhattan and old fashioned. Brad Underwood has already made it clear that he's doing everything he can to be back in studio by then, so you should probably check it out too!

Here's a statistic that might spark your interest: according to the 2012 National Survey on Young People and Volunteering, 93% of teens in the US say they want to volunteer but only 22% of them actually do. Their reasoning for not acting out is that they've never been asked to. We will have a live satellite interview with dosomething.org's CEO Nancy Lublin on the different ways to get involved in communities across the country at 9:45!

Now that you're all caught up on the news making headlines this morning, go get your day started and remember - you're half way to the weekend! :)

See ya!
