This is very important and urgent news! [WLKY]

Could the nation’s most eco-friendly school be located right here in Indiucky/Louisville Proper? [C-J]

Check out this profile of Democratic mayoral candidate Lisa Moxley from Bennett Haeberle. [FOX41]

David Tandy also got a fancy profile. He’s still unable to explain his JBS Swift flip-flop. (P.S. to Bennett: People aren’t pissed over the smell, they’re pissed over the Abramson/Tandy-supported law breaking.) [More FOX41]

Greg Fischer announced the endorsement of Retired Police & Firefighters Advocates, Inc. yesterday. The group represents 400 families. [Press Release]

The Louisville Zoo was fined $37,000 for that accident last June. [AP via H-L]

Dear Fifth Third Bank: You’re the reason I’m switching to a local bank. Goodness gracious. [WHAS11]

Did you know? JCPS officials got a blog about Bloom Elementary shut down because they didn’t want to be seen as pervert-enabling. Read this story to familiarize yourself with the basics and then start asking JCPS why they jerked a critical blog down about bad behavior at Bloom. [C-J]

Construction watch: creating an urban edge on Brandeis. [Broken Sidewalk]

Fairdale Bigfoot is no longer a mayoral candidate but he’s back with his weekly advice column. [Consuming Louisville]

    I have debit cards with 5/3 and Stockyards. I have received nothing from 5/3 about this security breach, but regularly get notices about one from Stockyards. I know they have sent me at least one new card in the past due to this issue. The latest one I can remember was just a few weeks ago when they said I couldn’t use my debit card and PIN in Georgia, due to some scam that was going on down there. So don’t think switching to a local bank is going to help.

    This is the third time in a year it’s happened with 5/3 – among other problems. So this is really a motivator.

    I, too, have a 5/3rd debit card, but have received NO security notice about it to date. I wondered if notices were only sent to people who had used their card with a specific merchant. But I re-read the WHAS story last evening, which seemed to imply that all 5/3rd debit card holders would receive a replacement…
