An Eastern Kentucky University student is in custody on charges stemming from an armed robbery in a campus dormitory. University police say they are unable to release some details since they are still investigating.
After a couple years of recession and state budget cuts, the president of Eastern Kentucky University says some bills are coming due. Two new buildings are going on-line at EKU and President Doug Whitlock must figure out how to pay for their operation and maintenance. The state once provided funds for such expenses, but, now schools like Eastern must pay those bills.
