New state record saugeye caught in Guist Creek Lake

From Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife

Louisville resident Dennis Rhea won big on Kentucky Oaks Day - not for a bet on a thoroughbred horse running at Churchill Downs, but for a state record saugeye he caught in Shelby County's Guist Creek Lake.

Rhea was fishing the lake May 3 with Brody, his black Labrador retriever and favorite fishing partner, when something struck his silver minnow-shaped crankbait. He brought the fish to hand after a determined fight: a 6-pound, 13-ounce saugeye, the new Kentucky state record for the species.

"I've caught a lot of saugeye the last few years from Guist Creek Lake," Rhea said. "I like to catch them, I like the way they fight and I love to eat them. They are a beautiful fish."

AGs Call on FCC to Help Stop Out-of-Country Scam Calls

By Crystal Staley/Kenneth Mansfield

Frankfort, KY - Today, Attorney General Andy Beshear and a coalition of 41 other attorneys general called on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to take further action to stop the rise of illegal scam calls.

In formal legal comments, the attorneys general encourage the FCC to adopt rules laying out a strategic approach to help battle the constant invasion of illegal scam calls, many coming from criminals located out of the country, while also addressing the rampant use of spoofing in text messaging and alternative voice services.

These provisions are included in the FCC appropriations authorization bill, also known as the RAY BAUM'S Act of 2018. The rule changes would broaden the FCC's authority to hold bad actors accountable, regardless of where the communications originate.
