    Jake, the C-J “clickies” no longer work for unsubscribed readers. Couldn’t even get Google’s cached version of the latest Shanklin story to open…

    Geesh, is anyone surprised another Council Critter abused their power and tried to hide it. Another example of why Louisville is screwed. We have a ineffective Mayor that is ignorant and arrogant. The we’ve got a self-serve Council. Jim King and Dems should be stepping up and ousting this public money-grubber. No costly faux trials, just ask her to resign. period. Jim King has shown he’s just one level below this behavior (see Zoo’s favortism and LMAS failures) Jim King is a puss and won’t do anything. He likes to hide behind the curtain and “say” he’s doing something behind-the-scenes. has no backbone to actually represent the interest of the taxpayers. Yup, Louisville loses again.

    Let’s see the County Attorney step up and go after some of the folks named in the article – for failing to pay local taxes, etc. And since when does the city just GIVE a valuable piece of property away? Who authorized that?

    Yum Brands steals from the Black Keys. The Black Keys steal from Junior Kimborugh and R.L. Burnside and the rest of the Mississippi Hills bluesmen. Who’s really getting screwed? Unfortunately Junior and R.L. are dead. I guess my point is you can’t really bitch when you steal something and then it gets stolen from you. I really wasn’t yours to begin with.
