Last night’s Academy Awards may be remembered by Best Supporting Actress winner Melissa Leo’s blurted-out, excited profanity.

But as NPR reports, except maybe the people who made Best Picture winner The King’s Speech, almost nobody had a very good time at this year’s Oscars.

A local meteorologist says the area “dodged a bullet.”

KENTUCKY~ Regions Bank sues Paducah-based Dippin’ Dots for $11mil. Community Foundation will dole out nearly $400k to local non-profits tomorrow.

TENNESSEE~ Clarksville may make the guy who accidentally damaged a WWI statue pay up.

ILLINOIS~ High winds blew off a trailer’s roof and downed some trees over roadways north of Metropolis. The Ohio/Mississippi Rivers are on the rise. A Carbondale drug rehab program will cut it’s multi-month-long programs.

OVC BASKETBALL~ (Men’s) MSU > EKU, APSU > SEMO, UTM < MhSU; (Women’s) MSU > EKU, APSU > SEMO, UTM > MhSU.
