Welcome to the last really free Friday of the summer for those of us with kids in school. And finally it’s going to be hot.
Not Exactly Bold Leadership: Greg Fischer – when you get a chance, for free, to tell people about yourself, say something. Don’t skirt the Cordish issue, saying you don’t know the details. Get an opinion on the bridges. And avoid referring to your Senate campaign as some kind of victory. [LEO]
It’s Golden. It’s Poo. It’s Almost Over: Today we unveil the final catagory of Golden Poo awards. Better start voting. [Golden Poo]
Library Woes: The current estimate of library damage is $5 million. Downtown branch may not open until after Labor Day. And there’s no Internet access at any of the branches. Maybe that’s why nobody was at the Mid-City Mall branch yesterday. [Courier]
Where Larry Lives: The C-J peeks in on Larry Bisig’s house. We want one of those media walls. [Courier]
And the Arena Story: It’s 450 days ’til the downtown arena opens, a few hours til we find out about some economic development thingie. Gov. Beshear was too busy to come back to town again, so Jerry Abramson’s headed over to Frankfort to do the press conference.
But First: Jerry’s got a press conference about a bike safety marketing program the city’s starting up. At 10 today, featuring cycling and pedestrian victims of accidents (or intentional running down of bikers).
Ali In New York: He’s still got it. Muhammad Ali made an appearance at Yankee Stadium last night. [NY Daily News]
Weekend Plans: St. Joseph’s Orphan Picnic, Street Rods, Art Cars, Trolley Hopping. Check out Cyndy’s list. Or you could clean up your house. [Cyndy's Top Ten]
