MSD paid Jerry Ferguson $140,000 after it fired him. The deal kept him quiet on waste allegations. If you think MSD is a hot mess, you should stay tuned. Pending lawsuits are going to blow peoples’ minds in this city this year. [C-J/AKN]

Are fossil fuels fueling our severe weather? [H-L]

It sure is nice when Louisville’s musical arts get love in the national press. [NY Times]

If you saw Greg Fischer’s budget we published last week but missed his address? Go here to give it a listen. [Phillip Bailey]

How can a news organization do a story about the Kentucky Humane Society waiving cat adoptions without bothering to mention Louisville Metro Animal Services and Animal House? Are you kidding me? [84WHAS]

A two-year-old in the southwestern part of town drowned in her family pool. [H-L]

And a body was found in the Ohio River. Two wonderful Memorial Day stories, eh? [FOX41]

Wait, wait. It gets worse. One person was killed in a motorcycle accident downtown. [WAVE3]

You should prepare now for the Urban Design Studio’s thingy about cities and how to shape them. [Consuming Louisville]

    So glad Tim Longmeyer is gone. He lied about never endorsing primary candidates in the WFPL piece. It gets old, just glad he is gone.

    Are other medium-large or large communities currently being abused by their solitary, non-competitive, monopolistic utility companies & the people employed to run them?
    In the early ’70s I had my own private sewage disposal system – much better than a septic system. The wastewater discharged from this multi-chambered self-contained system was “pure.” By law we had to have it inspected annually, for which we paid a reasonable service fee. New “cavitator” systems were no longer granted permits in Jeff. Co. by approx. the late ’70s. Despite sanitation claims, I’m sure MSD was the driving force.
