at Rupp Arena
The University of Kentucky will move Saturday's commencement to Rupp Arena from Memorial Coliseum. Renovations at the Lexington Center - which includes Rupp Arena - prompted the change, UK officials said. "With the recent major renovations, Rupp Arena and the Lexington Center will also accommodate many more visitors and permit the university to have numerous ceremonies in air-conditioned facilities in a more compact time than is possible on the campus," said commencement coordinator T. Lynn Williamson. About 6,000 seniors will graduate at the school's 137th commencement.
Search for body
Rain forced Brown County sheriff's officials to call off a search Sunday morning for murder victim Carrie Culberson's body in Perry Township. Police began the latest hunt for Culberson, who disappeared in 1996, on Thursday, digging at a barn 40 miles east of Cincinnati. Police have not said what prompted the search. Culberson's former boyfriend, Vincent Doan, was convicted in 1997 of murder and kidnapping. He has refused to say what happened to the body.
