A Lexington-based attorney with a history representing former Kentucky Governor Ernie Fletcher has sent a complaint to Murray State’s Board of Regents Chair alleging a violation of Kentucky’s Open Meeting law.
Jim Deckard sent the complaint to Dr. Constantine Curris Thursday. Deckard, referencing media reports, says a quorum of regents gathered at regent Sharon Green’s home and discussed board business the night before the board’s quarterly meeting.
At that meeting Curris entertained a motion to vote on whether or not to extend President Randy Dunn’s contract. The discussion wasn’t listed on the board meeting agenda. It was brought up under the guise of “other business.” The motion to extend Dunn a new four year contract failed by a margin of 7 to 4.
Police say a bus carrying the Murray State University women’s track team has rolled over on icy Interstate 69 in southwest Indiana, injuring four people.
Murray State spokeswoman Sherry McClain says the team was traveling in two minibuses from the college in Murray, Ky., to a meet at Indiana University in Bloomington Friday morning when one of the buses hit a patch of ice and turned on its side.
She says four students had minor injuries and two were taken to a nearby hospital for observation.
Murray State athletics director Allen Ward says the team still plans to participate in the IU Relays Friday and Saturday.
