Today’s roundup/update thingy is coming at the end of the day. Because, well, let’s get real… SOMEBODY spent too much time outside walking a dog. What was that, again, about Louisville being the 16th-largest city in the United States? HAHAHA. 16th with a bullet, maybe! Right. The latest census data say we’re 27th. Thank god [...]

Neighbors are upset that sirens took more than an hour to sound after the ammonia leak at Swift yesterday. Count us as still pissed. We thought it’d be a cold day in hell before we thought Jerry Abramson’s administration was better than Greg Fischer’s… but… well… it’s pretty dang cold today. [WAVE3] Check out the [...]

This JBS Swift bullshiz? And MetroSafe saying there’s nothing to see here? That’s bogus. Third time in three weeks that something near-disaster has occurred and Metro Government has played pat-a-cake. WHEN WILL THIS CITY GET ANSWERS, DAMNIT?

Isn’t it cute how some folks in Crescent Hill complain non-stop about horrible cell phone reception but lose their shiz when someone tries to resolve the problem? WTF is wrong with building a cell phone tower off Frankfort Avenue? How is it bad for everyone in the neighborhood? It’s going up on quite possibly the [...]

Last week, the Board of Zoning Adjustments got hit with yet another lawsuit for what can only be classified as stupid behavior on behalf of Jerry Abramson. Here’s a reminder, in case it’s already slipped your mind: Seems like it was just a few weeks ago when we last discussed the BOZA-Butchertown-Swift-Metro Government mess. Remember [...]

Seems like it was just a few weeks ago when we last discussed the BOZA-Butchertown-Swift-Metro Government mess. Remember it? Laws broken, chairwoman ousted, yadda yadda. You know how the story goes in Louisville. If you have friends in high places? You get a free pass. So… dun dun dun… let’s talk about that some more. [...]

On Thursday, legal counsel for JBS Swift requested an extension of time to exercise the over-discussed modified use permit. An extension, it should be noted, that legally had to be requested 30 days before the permit is set to expire (expiration August 31). Not surprisingly, the matter was placed on BOZA’s agenda during the 11th [...]
