A barge and crane from Ohio-based Aquarius Marine pulled two sunken houseboats and another vessel out of the river Wednesday. Emergency Management Director Tom Russell said the remaining two boats would be removed and all would be offloaded on Thursday. Most of the boats abandoned on Frankfort’s banks sank 20 or more years ago, Russell said.

A Fayette Circuit judge has ruled in favor of Walker Properties and against the owners of the failed National Provisions restaurant in a dispute over rent and fixtures. National Provisions at 710 National Avenue closed in September, and that resulted in a suit filed by the property owner, Walker Properties, against the restaurant owners, Krim Boughalem and his wife, Andrea Sims. In a ruling filed Wednesday, Judge Thomas Travis granted a summary judgment to Walker Properties, dismissed a counterclaim filed by Boughalem, and sustained a motion by Walker for declaratory judgment.
