Louisville has the prettiest girls, most beautiful flowers, best food & liquor, and fastest horses in the whole damn world (at least for this week), and we’re proud to share them with our honored guests. As grandpa used to say: “It don’t get much better than this.”
By the time Mr. Metz got to me, it was clear that all five of the most popular boys in Louisville were Sophomores at Valley High School. Metz was no dummy, but he graciously maintained a straight face throughout the interviews.
“Calling out the Republicans at the Brent Spence bridge was bad enough, given the bipartisan support for its reconstruction. But pointing to the Sherman Minton Bridge, which already has been repaired without funding from the president’s jobs bill, is ridiculous.”
“The law makes no distinction between icons and the rest of us, and neither do I,” Edelen said. “The report paints a clear picture of an administration that had no qualms about treating taxpayer resources as its own. The former commissioner had state employees on state time take him hunting and shopping, mow his yard, build a basketball court in his backyard, and even chauffer his dog. He showered himself with gifts and office equipment and rewarded friends with jobs. These are just some of the documented abuses that should outrage every Kentuckian.”
"The only real challenge in this debate is coaxing the President off of the campaign trail and up to the negotiating table, to get him to choose results over rallies.”
"Really, the thing about Dan that made him so special is that he was just such a gentle, kind and considerate person. When he was an undergraduate, he would volunteer for any cause that came along. He was always trying to help out the underdog."
"We simply do not have the operating revenue to continue the level of service we now provide everywhere because of rising expenses for fuel, health care, pensions and other costs. The proposed changes are designed to keep as much service as possible to meet the greatest needs with a balanced budget."
“The Derby Dash is a fantastic new way to involve children and families in the fun, competitive spirit of the Derby day,” said Gov. Beshear. “Thank you to the Frankfort YMCA for organizing this event and best of luck to all our young racers!”
“It has been an honor to serve the 35th district in the Kentucky State Senate and I am proud of the work I have done. However, there are still many issues facing the citizens of Louisville and the Commonwealth of Kentucky that need to be addressed.”
“Barbaro is one of the most beloved thoroughbreds in racing history – not just for his victories, but for his heroic struggles after his Preakness injury,” said Mrs. Beshear. “John Stephen Hockensmith’s photograph truly highlights the Derby champion at the top his game, and this year’s poster is a beautiful keepsake for Barbaro fans and all racing enthusiasts.”
“Gov. Beshear has been a great ally for local and regional economic development organizations around Kentucky. His willingness to listen and work with local organizations has been terrific, whether in recruitment efforts or taking input on the Incentives for a New Kentucky programs. Without the leadership of Gov. Beshear and his administration, Kentucky would not have weathered the recession as well as we have.”
"What matters is not the idea a man holds, but the depth at which he holds it. Death before dishonor. Family above all."
