DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Board of Education is investigating reports of issues ranging from bed bugs to bad food at the Kentucky School for the Deaf in Danville. The Lexington Herald-Leader reported Wednesday that the agency says it's investigating allegations parents sent to state school board members last week. One parent wrote that some students have been taught for months by a worker who's not certified by the state. Another parent wrote that bed bugs were found in her daughter's dorm.

COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky woman is accused of faking cancer for donations. The Cincinnati Enquirer reported Thursday that 25-year-old Jessica Marie Krecskay has been arrested on felony theft charges. Kenton Commonwealth's Attorney Rob Sanders says Krecskay's co-workers and employers gave her more than $10,000 to help with her diagnosis between 2013 and 2017. He says she never updated the donors on her treatment or how the donations helped, and their suspicions led to her arrest last week.

ATLANTA (AP) - As cities and states across the South are removing or covering up Confederate monuments, an enormous painting depicting the Battle of Atlanta from the American Civil War will soon reopen to the public. But historians say this painting _ one of the world's largest _ was never intended to celebrate the Confederacy. The painting goes on display Friday at the Atlanta History Center after a two-year restoration effort.

MAYFIELD, Ky. (AP) - A hemp processor has broken ground for a processing facility being built in Kentucky. GenCanna officials say the facility outside Mayfield in western Kentucky will employ more than 80 people.
