Hey! We’re into our Terrible Twos. In August 2007, we launched Page One Kentucky and re-launched The ‘Ville Voice. Send us gifts. It continues to be fun, and we appreciate all the support and criticism from the continually growing audience of the sites.
Now, what’s going on…
All Aboard the Pickup Train: Metro Council member Cheri Bryant-Hamilton is the third to bring free curbside junk pick-up to her flood-ravaged district. Wonder why we didn’t just have Council members coordinate the Windstorm debris pickup? George Unseld and Marianne Butler previously set up pickups. [Metro]
He Likes that Tough Son of a Bitch: Talk about getting overshadowed in the news. Finance Secretary Jonathan Miller announced on Twitter yesterday that he, like most Frankfort Democrats, is supporting Jack Conway in the U.S. Senate race. Daniel Mongiardo does have the tepid support of the Governor.
Calls for Homeless Regulation: I don’t think there’s any mystery about which homeless shelter U of L John Gilderbloom is talking about when he writes that conditions are abysmal. He says regulation would straighten things out. [Gilderbloom]
OK, Here’s Your Fine, Get to Work: The state Labor Cabinet handed out fines to several subcontractors on the Arena project related to that concrete collapse a few months back. [Courier]
So How Long’s It Take: Yes, we know city auditor Mike Norman is working on a way to make those Cordish numbers sound palatable to the public. But how long’s it gonna take? [Just Wondering]
Fuzzy’s Place: Doug Hawkins jumped on this bandwagon quick. Since Fuzzy Zoeller is letting current military members into his Wolf Challenge this weekend for free, he pushed it in an e-mail, his umpteenth e-mail of the day. Boo Weekley, John Daly and Rocco Mediate will be there. [Fuzzy]
Even Albert Mohler has a Pitino Take: Check out what he said on the radio. [Peter Smith]
More Good News for Pitino: Another prominent Kentuckian was mixed up in a weird sex scandal in 2003. And six years later, Paul Patton was named president of Pike College. [Herald-Leader]
Now That’s Ironic: Via the Facebook contraption, we learn that former WLKY funnyman Jim Bulleit got a gig for his comedy act at the Luther Luckett Correctional Institution. Says it’ll be fun to play to a captive audience. hahaha.
