  • "After celebrating the renovation of a McDonald’s in west Louisville, Mayor Greg Fischer was called out by a member of his own recently-formed Food Policy Council who was disappointed in the message it sent to food justice advocates. The fast food restaurant at 28th and Broadway was closed for a few months for remodeling, but re-opened Thursday with a celebration of dance crews, drum lines and a visit from Ronald McDonald. Fischer attended the festivities and praised the store’s owner, but a local food justice advocate was displeased enough to voice her frustration." [WFPL]
  • "Trader Joe’s announced Thursday it will indeed open a Louisville store this year. The store will be at 4600 Shelbyville Road — the Shelbyville Road Plaza in St. Matthews, said Alison Mochizuki, spokeswoman for Trader Joe’s, based in Monrovia, Calif. She could not be more specific about the opening date." [Courier-Journal]
  • "The Louisville Metro Council will discuss a measure Thursday evening that if approved will drastically change traffic patterns in the Old Louisville neighborhood. An ordinance introduced by Councilman David James, D-6, seeks to convert portions of First and Brook streets into two-way streets. Local business owners in the district have been supportive of the new traffic plan for a number of years and previous city representatives have studied the issue." [WFPL]
  • "While Louisville native Jennifer Lawrence prepares for her highest profile acting role to date, People magazine has bestowed upon her a most flattering honor. Lawrence is among People’s Most Beautiful 2011, alongside A-list stars including Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lopez and Zac Efron." [Courier-Journal]
