  • "When Gov. Steve Beshear held a Capitol news conference to announce potential state tax incentives for an amusement park built around a life-size Noah’s Ark earlier this month, he cited a feasibility study that predicted the park would attract 1.6 million visitors in its first year. However, neither Beshear nor other state officials had seen or read the study, which was commissioned by Ark Encounter, LLC, the group building the theme park." [Bluegrass Politics]
  • "Mayor-elect Greg Fischer has made what could be the final staff announcement of the transition. He has ordered a performance audit of the Public Works Department “to insure (sic) it is operating at maximum efficiency and effectiveness.” [WFPL]
  • "Louisville Metro Parks officials are hopeful the 2.4-mile scenic loop around Cherokee Park will reopen Monday, after it was closed because of icy conditions on roadways after Thursday's ice storm." [Courier-Journal]
