    • "The Greater Louisville Project announced that the grassroots movement 8664 is the winner of its Create Louisville: Your Big Idea project, but the group won’t get a one-on-one sit down with Mayor Greg Fischer as originally promised. The contest was designed to engage citizens, elicit fresh thinking and new ideas about the city, and garnered more than 2,300 votes since it was launched last fall. Among more than a hundred “big ideas” submitted by community members with 8664 almost receiving more votes than the other top four winners combined...Initially, the winner of the contest was promised a half hour meeting with the mayor to brief him on their idea, however, after reviewing a list of the finalists there’s been a slight change per the Fischer administration’s request." [LEO Weekly]
    • "In view of the decision to charge for seating at this year’s “Thunder over Louisville” event on the Great Lawn at the Waterfront, Councilman Brent T. Ackerson (D-26) has issued the following statement to the Derby Festival: 'Like other members of the Metro Council, I represent people who could easily afford this new cost for admission. But I also serve families for whom this would be a great burden. Our waterfront serves as the People’s Park, a park which their tax dollars helped to build and continues to maintain. And Thunder is one of the signature events during the Kentucky Derby Festival which appeals to nearly everyone. We should not allow Waterfront Park and Thunder Over Louisville to be fenced off, placed out of the economic reach for our citizens, especially when the revenues from the sale of the Pegasus Pins are not going to the public coffers.'"

    • "Fitting for a place that headquarters Yum! Brands, Louisville is the second most fast food saturated city in the country according to a list compiled by The Consumerist, behind only Orlando, FL." [LEO Weekly]
