Let’s Throw $ At Cordish Cos But Not Local Folks

Greg Fischer is happy to throw millions of dollars at Cordish Cos – and you know all about that hot mess – but can’t be bothered to really try to do something great for Downtown Louisville. [C-J/AKN]

Are you ready for this fancy Ben Sollee documentary? Get ready because it’s on its way. [Wooden Box]

For most people, there’s life despite the Kentucky Derby and a few reporters were bored out of their minds. In fact, many people in Louisville leave town every year just to avoid the mess. [FOX41]

The 138th running of the Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby races, and all the activities surrounding those events, brought plenty of attention to Louisville over the last few days. [Business First]

This disgusting woman who stole from her ill father can now have her ass handed to her by elder abuse legislation passed last year in Frankfort. [WAVE3]

Just what Churchill Downs needs right after the Kentucky Derby. A murder that makes international news. [Reuters & C-J/AKN]

Churchill Downs says the crowd for the Kentucky Derby topped 165,000 people and 112,000 showed up for Oaks. Wagering on Oaks totaled $35.9 million. [WHAS11]

You may want to find out if you have outstanding parking tickets so you don’t get the boot. [Click the Clicky]

Apparently a lot of celebrities came to Louisville for the Kentucky Derby. Thank goodness the city looks clean once per year for a two week period. [WLKY]

The utility task force studying a potential collaboration between the Metropolitan Sewer District, Louisville Water Company and Metro Public Works is nearing the end of its work. Which basically means nothing. [WFPL]

Really? You’re still pretending your local Clear Channel station isn’t absolute right-wing hype? [84WHAS]

Kentucky’s efforts to overhaul its public education system are being put to their first test. [H-L]

    To which elder abuse legislation are you refering? I am a crime victim advocate for older adults and believe me, the woman who stole $445 (it was actually more but some of the money was returned to the victim by the bank) will barely get a slap on the wrist. The legislation passed last year was fantastic, but it’s only a tiny step in the right direction. There was more legislation that should have been passed this year – like HB 259, HB 175, and HB 498 – that would have directly supported older adults, and others, but Frankfort failed us again.

    If convicted, she can be prevented from benefiting from inheritance or her loved one’s estate when they pass.

    Yes, she would have to be convicted of Knowingly Exploiting an Adult, which hopefully she will be. It’s being investigated by Crimes Against Seniors, so hopefully that will indeed happen. Too often, these cases are amended to other misdemeanors like Theft by Unlawful Taking and then the legislation would not apply.
