    G​oodbye, Mr. Pruitt

    After a four-hour, closed door meeting of the Board of Education, members announced the resignation Kentucky Education Commissioner Stephen Pruitt. The day before, Gov. Bevin appointed seven new members to the board, making the entire 12-person group Bevin appointees. With such a partisan board in charge of Kentucky education, it'll be interesting to see what happens with the JCPS audit. The new interim commissioner is a UK professor named Wayne Lewis. Guess what he likes? Yep: Charter schools. 


    Who is Andy Beshear Suing This Week?

    Pharmaceutical company Johnson and Johnson, saying they misled folks about the addictive dangers of painkillers. It's not the first time he's taken shots in court at pharma companies over the opioid crisis. As usual, the governor isn't happy with him. "I'm not on board with just about anything that he does," Bevin said, surprising nobody. 


    No Plans Tonight? Ask the Kiosk.

    New "Louisville CityPost" kiosks, which provide info about town and events calendars from Do502, will be popping up downtown, starting with nine along Jefferson and Fourth Street, though many more are in the works. They can operate in several languages, call 911 and have cameras that can see 360 degrees. So, they're sort of like big, immobile phones? Anyway, don't pick your nose downtown!


    Against the Microbrewery

    Against the Grain abandoned plans to turn the old Swiss Hall in the St. Joseph's neighborhood into a microbrewery and beer garden after the mayor-appointed Louisville Metro Planning Commission raised concerns about noise from concerts. You think they've heard of Zanzabar?


    The Galt House Plans a Makeover

    An $80-million renovation and an agreement with the global Wyndham Hotel Group? Somebody's trying to keep up with the Omni.

    Staff writer Dylon Jones began contributing to the magazine in 2014 and joined the staff in 2015. While working on stories, he's scaled overpasses in the middle of the night, taken notes in a mosh pit, fallen through a mound of driftwood, and had his fortune read several times. His subjects have included queer scream-pop duo GRLwood; Louisville's two-man dead animal removal team; Les Waters, now the former artistic director of Actors Theatre; Muhammad Ali's hearse driver and gravediggers; revitalization efforts in the Portland neighborhood; Louisville Orchestra conductor Teddy Abrams; ER doctors; musicians; artists; and garbage collectors. He is also an award-winning poet, with work appearing most recently in Tinderbox Poetry Journal. He likes page-turning stories about how people manage to be people, especially if they're doing it in Louisville. Know a good one like that? Email him at djones @ loumag dot com.
