  • "After bringing $113 million to Kentucky last year, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell now says he opposes earmarks." [WFPL]
  • "A group led by developer and architect Bill Weyland is seeking up to $12 million in bonds through the city to finance construction of a boutique hotel just southeast of Fourth and Chestnut streets next to the Henry Clay event center." [Courier-Journal]
  • "The Louisville Orchestra’s musicians have broken the silence over ongoing contract negotiations. Sources told WFPL last week that the ensemble was nearly broke. Musicians and administrators confirmed that they were indeed in talks about renewing the musicians’ contract (which expires next year), but would not say how dire the financial situation is, citing a mutual agreement to not negotiate through the media. CEO Robert Birman said bankruptcy was an option, as in previous years, but it would not be used as a threat in contract negotiations." [WFPL]
