It’s Monday! A Happy Post-Holiday Binge

November 30th, 2009 by jake · 1 Comment

It’s a shame something like this can’t happen in Louisville. Wes Finley = former WHAS11 producer. [Click the Clicky]

Kentucky’s school superintendents have free reign to sit on boards of organizations and businesses from which they directly profit. It’s illegal for every other state employee to do so. And now superintendents – primarily Sheldon Berman – wants to have his evaluation as a public employee kept private. Our tax dollars being spent on this fight. It is time for our elected officials, the press and everyday citizens to stand up for open records and transparency in government. And it is time to hold these people accountable. [Nancy Rodriguez]

It’s a shame there are still messes like this. Just takes one bad apple to ruin it for everybody. [WHAS11]

If you live in Louisville’s 41st State House District, then start paying attention to Mike Slaton. [Barefoot & Progressive]

It’s absolutely mind-blowing that a Democratic candidate for the Kentucky State House is advocating meaningful tax reform. Nobody tell the Gas Station Governor. [Mike Slaton on the Twitter]

Kentucky’s food stamp participation is on the rise. 12.3% total increase in just a year. [Page One]

Steve Kragthorpe is out at the University of Louisville. Media & UofL sources told us two weeks ago that Kragthorpe was preparing to list his Lake Forest home with a realtor but never found proof. But here it is. [Pat Forde & C-J]

Local history geek alert! The Beechmont Fire Station is set to be demolished. [Broken Sidewalk]

Hart-Lunsford’s latest hand in the film world involves Zac Efron and Orson Welles. And they’re not focusing on distribution. [C-J]

Julie & Ellen like Jim King enough to dedicate an entire column to him. [Voice-Tribune]

    “Will Jurich Be Next?–Not with His Contract”

    AD-for-Life Jurich must be sitting confidently despite the Cards’ horrid three seasons under his handpicked coach. With such a contract, Tom can pick another loser and not be worried. With 23,422 fans at the last UofL pigskin dive, who knows–maybe Ramsey will buy out his lucrative deal (it was JR who arranged such a crazy contract in the first place, when Jurich was only in his late 40s). Even worse than the contract Notre Dame gave the now departing Weis.
