'I am a human. I’m fallible like anybody else,' Paul said.[Bluegrass Politics]
  • "Trolley service in downtown Louisville will once again be free, at least for about three months–trolley rides will be subsidized through business sponsorships for the summer." [The Edit]
  • "There is more than one instance of gun violence each day in Louisville, and most victims are uninsured, meaning public funding and University Hospital are consistently having to foot the high cost of treatment, according to research by a professor of emergency medicine at the hospital."
