    THE WEST END: COVER TO COVER

    Every single story in our March issue is about west Louisville. There’s community development, culinary creators, businesses new and old. State Rep. Attica Scott gets frank. A new program helps people expunge their criminal records. The executive director of the YMCA on West Chestnut looks to the future. The students of the La’Nita Rocknettes School of Dance conjure Africa in a musical. A woman helps build a home for herself. There are so many stories to tell about the nine neighborhoods in the West End, and we’ve barely scratched the surface. You can find us on newsstands today, and keep an eye on Louisville.com for upcoming content. Thanks for reading.
