Louisville news: Who needs Kentucky Kingdom when you're getting Bible Park USA? edition [News]

  • "[Congressman John] Yarmuth chastises the Republican Party’s hideous 'budget plan,' which amounts to an egregious heist of wealth from the 98 percent of Americans by the top two percent, who are currently wondering whether to line their hot tubs with platinum or the more cost-effective gold." [LEO Weekly]
  • "Louisville is headed in two different directions: its suburban edges are expanding, while urban areas are mostly hollowing out. Specifically, 2010 Census data shows the most dramatic growth during the decade occurred in a belt running outside the Gene Snyder Freeway from Interstate 71 south and west to Preston Highway — with double-digit percentage growth in some areas near Oldham, Shelby and Spencer counties." [Courier-Journal]
  • "Kentucky Kingdom's future is in doubt after Mayor Greg Fischer's administration said it won't help pay to reopen the amusement park next year. Ed Hart, who heads the group trying to reopen the park as a public-private partnership, recently asked the Louisville metro government to approve a $20 million bond issue to help open at least part of the park." [Courier-Journal]
