House Resolution 83 Honors Francene Cucinello

January 26th, 2010 · Comments Off

Shortly after Francene’s passing two Fridays ago, I suggested to several Jefferson County legislators that they should file a resolution to adjourn the State House in honor of Francene. Because there’s no question she’s one of the few people in the entirety of Kentucky who worked hard to keep our legislature honest. There’s no question [...]

My Beloved Francene Cucinello

I just don’t know where to begin. My dear friend Francene has passed away at the age of 43. I can’t breathe. I just. Dunno. She’s the one person I’ve been able to count on for three years. I love her dearly. May she rest in peace. I’ll miss you, doll. EDIT: If you loved [...]

Francene was approached by prominent Louisville Democrats to run as a Republican against Congressman John Yarmuth. Let’s speculate on who that might be. [LEO Weekly] LG&E wants to jack your electricity rates up 12% and natural gas rates nearly 9%. Just what this region needs – more bills. [C-J] Mayor McCheese Jerry Abramson will deliver [...]

Gaying Up the Radio & Uncovering Corruption

December 1st, 2009 · Comments Off

Yesterday I shared details about Southern Indiana taxpayers getting hoodwinked. After uncovering details of Greater Clark County Schools officials deliberately misleading a Courier-Journal reporter, I appeared on The Francene Show to discuss the whole mess.

Only Francene Could Make This Mess Funny

November 18th, 2009 · 4 Comments

Piggish behavior all around, indeed: Little Pig One, a neighborhood association, built pretty loft condos and fostered urban development in a place called Butchertown, where unpleasant smells and industrial traffic from the local slaughterhouse shouldn’t have come as a surprise.
