See? Louisville Should Build Greener Homes, Too

May 29th, 2012 by jake · 3 Comments

This Whitley County project is producing homes with little or no energy costs. And it’s why Kentucky can have nice things. [H-L]

Wondering why things at Metro Animal Services are still a disaster? [WLKY]

This will make Brave Mouth-Breathing Teabagger Patriot Marilyn Parker’s head explode: “If you get to the stage where you can persuade people on the evidence, that it’s solid, that we are all African, that color is superficial, that stages of development of culture are all interactive,” Leakey says, “then I think we have a chance of a world that will respond better to global challenges.” [HuffPo]

It’s like watching a farmer try to operate a company that produces high-tech video panels. They just don’t go together and the song doesn’t end on a positive note. [WFPL]

You think murder in Louisville can’t touch everybody? It’s now hitting the late George Unseld’s family. [WHAS11]

The email did not mince words. It came from an officer at a California teachers union, and he was irate. President Barack Obama’s re-election team had just hired as a spokeswoman a veteran Democratic operative who had spent the last year at a nonprofit, pushing education policies that the union did not like. [Reuters]

A judge has issued a restraining order that prevents the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission from enforcing the suspension of jockey Robby Albarado. [FOX41]

Sheppard Square is biting the dust. What kind of future will redevelopment hold? [C-J/AKN]

The Belle of Louisville is raising prices to “cope with money problems.” Which means that now nobody will check the Belle out. But a pro-tip to WAVE: Nobody “discovered” the Belle’s financial problems. They made it clear in press releases for several years and with the way they conducted business (i.e., not paying bills and essentially stiffing people). It wasn’t a secret. [WAVE3]

While this guy is a hero in our eyes just for saving this Afghan dog, it’s silly to spend so much money getting an animal like that into the United States when there are places like Metro Animal Services literally overrun with animals in need of loving homes. [HuffPo]

The local mainstream – like WHAS11 – loves talking about Kentucky Kingdom when people like Jerry Abramson call saying it’s going to open in 2013 or when someone from Holiday World calls to say it it’s going to generate eleventeen trillion dollars for the city. They’ll literally spend days and days and days talking about it. But when news breaks that they were part of the hype and purposefully overlooked, you know, the facts and reality? And that the joint won’t be opening as promised? Not a peep. [The 'Ville Voice]

    LMAS: Add to this WLKY appeal the Scally interview that is being recycled on WDRB today – wherein Scally says he cleans cages for $90,000/yr. & no one mentions the kill rate.

    I wouldn’t want to be the insurer for the UofL campus.

    I would pursue the failure of that brand new campus apartment building to alert occupants & to contain the lightning strike that burned it this morning.

    Oops! Where are the storm shelters in those energy-efficient Eastern Ky. homes? Maybe the lucky new homeowners will use their energy savings to purchase a shelter…
