What Will Louisville Look Like Sans Obamacare?

Most people know by now that the Affordable Care Act has provided anything but affordable healthcare and many pundits feel like that is one of the major issues on President Elect Trump’s agenda that won him votes.

If Trump holds true to his campaign promises and does away with Obamacare, what will the outcome be like for Louisville? Will blue collar workers be insured in the future and what will workers do during open registration? After all, they are being told to…

Yes, it’s another story about Pokemon Go. The hunting is good in LouisvilleKY

Then, when you’re in the car with your girlfriend and it comes time to go out to dinner, you can’t pull up the list from the recesses of your brain, and you end up at Olive Garden (just kidding, I don’t go there). On Tuesday I crossed one of those new spots off my list in spectacular fashion. After a drink at Volare for the NFocus Farewell Party (that print publication put out…
