Smell Of Status Quo Totally Permeates Louisville

In case you were wondering, Kentucky’s unfunded pension liabilities are becoming an even bigger nightmare for the Commonwealth. [Page One]

We heard a nasty rumor that a certain A Kentucky Newspaper may be considering dropping a Monday or Tuesday edition. I don’t believe it actually happening, but it’s interesting that that’s the rumor floating about said newspaper’s employee pool. [Oh, To A Failing Industry]

According to a new report from the Sierra Club, Indiana and Kentucky power plants emit the 5th and 6th most toxic mercury pollution in the entire country. [Environment America]

It’s silly for Fayette and Jefferson Counties to still have County Judges-Executive. Absolutely silly. A waste of time, money and space. [H-L]

Greg Fischer gave his State of the City address yesterday. If you missed it, feel free to listen to it or read about it. [WFPL]

He says the status quo is unacceptable, but he was keen on understating the negatives yesterday. There’s a big difference between “almost 25,000” and 34,600 jobs lost. A big difference. [FatLip]

Someone probably needs to inform the County Attorney’s office that there’s more going on at Louisville Metro Animal Services than a few sexual harassment lawsuits against the former director. And to suggest that folks who have problems with LMAS go directly to the mayor’s office? Really? To the guy who has gone so far as to make threats and try to cover various messes up? REALLY? To the guy who issued a notice to administration and government types that any and all meetings, proclamations and events would have to be scheduled with Fischer via a form on his website, never on the phone or in-person? Riiiiight. Smells like status quo to me. [Even More FatLip]

It’s sad that the Catholic Archdiocese of Louisville fired a woman for complaining about its cover-up of a priest’s alleged behavior. It’s almost like Metro Government firing LMAS employees when they complain about anything. If not similar, it’s at least as disgusting. [FOX41]

Metro Councilman David James wants to bring live entertainment back to the Old Louisville neighborhood. Seems like a no-brainer, right? [WAVE3]

90% of JCPS parents say they believe diverse schools benefit their children. 79% believe their children should be able to attend the school closet to their home even if it increases segregation. Meanwhile, some JCPS board members are poo-pooing the results. [WHAS11]

Louisville Metro Animal Services Debacle Take XXX

Come on – it’s not like we can really track how long this has been going on. And this is, what, the millionth time we’ve written about Louisville Metro Animal Services?

Your mayor is still playing pat-a-cake, so, we’re still playing let’s-take-a-look-behind-the-curtain.

Take a look at some of these, ahem, interesting reasons for death:

429978 — employee 1: contagious disease; employee 2: do not agree with et request- gave 0.45 ml inj convenia; employee 3: ET for behavior observed, crouching and hissing very fearful disregard first memo did not receive convenia
