FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky ethics commission has unanimously dismissed a pair of complaints filed against Republican Gov. Matt Bevin over his purchase of a home from a friend and campaign donor. The Executive Branch Ethics Commission says Bevin didn't do anything wrong when he bought a house from Neil Ramsey, a friend that Bevin has appointed to the Kentucky Retirement Systems board of trustees. However, the commission said Bevin should let the lieutenant governor decide whether to reappoint Ramsey.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Anti-abortion activists have been ordered by a judge to stay away from a "buffer zone" outside Kentucky's only abortion clinic.

Hale issued a temporary restraining order Friday that federal prosecutors sought as a pre-emptive move ahead of vigils organized by Operation Save America, a Texas-based Christian fundamentalist group.

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky officials say the state's unemployment rate rose slightly in June. The Office of Employment and Training says last month's seasonally adjusted preliminary rate was 5.1 percent.

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Indiana and Kentucky officials have narrowed the possible Ohio River locations for an Interstate 69 bridge from five to three sites. Officials also announced Thursday that two of the routes still under consideration would call for removal of the U.S. 41 Twin Bridges. The proposed new bridge would carry I-69 traffic between the Evansville, Indiana, and Henderson, Kentucky, areas. The cost has been estimated between $850 million and $1.4 billion.
