 Here are the six things you need to know for your day in news today, Monday, February 10th.

  1. Many students in the Local 6 area return to the classroom today, but some roads remain dangerous causing districts, like Paducah city schools to change bus routes.
  2. Kentucky road crews spread more than 300,000 tons of salt so far this year. That's 100,000 more than on average. The Transportation Cabinet says when conditions permit, crews will rely more on plowing and less on salt. 
  3. "Do you know the way to San Jose?" The AP finds at least 150 planes landed at the wrong airport, or caught their mistake in time, since the early 90's. Silicon Valley Airport cited the most.
  4. The US Corps of Engineers asked "Grand Tower" to pay 35 percent of what it needs to fix the town's levee. According to "The Southern" they need to fix the soil they put down which causes slides.
  5. North Korea rescinded an invitation to discuss the release of detained American Kenneth Bae. It's the second offer from the United States.
  6. The head of the US Justice Department says he'll release a memo today calling for expanded benefits for married, same-sex couples. The new policies would allow prison visits and survivor benefits for the widows of police officers and firefighters.
