LouisvilleKY’s THE WEEK: A Big Movie, Bibles, Bridges and Brains and Bull – and a Moose

There was a lot to do this week as I prepared for some sitting-around time post-surgery, and it seemed there was some urgency around town too. It’ll Probably Take 40 Days and 40 Nights: Now that we’ve got a religious conservative heading to the Governor’s Mansion, most folks think it won’t take long for Matt Bevin to restore state tax incentives for the Ark Park in northern Kentucky. Last year, the state tourism cabinet revoked $18 million in tax credits because the Park wouldn’t say it would hire anybody who wasn’t a Christian, and the state doesn’t support religious ideas….

THE WEEK: Staying Up Late, Girl Talk and Walking the Trail

Yes, we’ve had some fun this week in Louisville KY. Let’s review: Late Nights in the City: It’s said that nothing good ever happens after 2, so Councilman Tom Owen’s push to close bars at 2 a.m. might make sense to some. But late-night partying is among the city’s charms, and would adversely affect the economics of things, like the new Loui Loui’s carryout spot down in the Highlands. Prediction — this one go anywhere. Inspiring for Girls: Jennifer Lawrence gets a 30 x 40 foot banner in her hometown Saturday. The new Hometown Hero poster goes up at the…

Louisville’s favorite daughter gets a big banner

Louisville, Ky., – Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence is the latest Louisvillian to be dubbed a Hometown Hero. For that recognition, there will be a 30-by-40-foot banner draped along the west-facing wall of the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts. The banner will be unveiled Sept. 25, thanks to the efforts of The Lawrence Ladies who launched a GoFundMe site to raise money for the banner. Lawrence’s banner was funded through efforts led by the group “The Lawrence Ladies.” The group of young women created a GoFundMe site to raise money for the banner. The fundraising page calls Lawrence “…a woman who…


THE WEEK: No Jaywalking Allowed, Jennifer’s Riches, Art, the Fair and the Chief

Stories we weren’t interested in on our Facebook feed: Who’s on the Ashley Madison list, your strategy for your fantasy football team, and your opinion on Donald Trump. But all those back-to-school pics sure were cute. Here are items of local interest: Jen Makes The Best List to Be On: If you are among the many locals who claim to have known Jennifer Lawrence when she was in middle school here, well, maybe you should ask to be in her entourage. Forbes announced its “Highest-Paid Actresses” list for 2015, and Lawrence’s $52 million blew away 2nd-place Scarlett Johansson by a…

Get in Touch with The Greatest

It’s a Holiday, and a good one. Rather than just enjoy the day off (if you work for the government), it’s a good day to visit the Muhammad Ali Center downtown. If you haven’t been, you’re missing one of the city’s best attractions. To celebrate the holiday, and the 69th birthday of “The Greatest”, there are special admission discounts. Take an old cell  phone down there and get in free. Otherwise it’s $2. The Center is presenting King’s “I Have a Dream” speech all day.
