And No Drinking til 6

I don’t really like this new weather guy at Fox41. Ever since Jude Redfield’s been on the air, the weather has sucked.  Some Paul Emmick fans started a Facebook group “Keep Paul Emmick on Fox 41 News.” But only 40 people joined. Bueno Bocaditos : The popular Seviche restaurant on Bardstown Road in the...

Catfight on the Council – Green Faces the Music

A funny thing happened when troubled Metro Councilwoman Judy Green appeared on the Simmons Saturday Morning Solutions program on WLOU-AM 1350. It’s a gospel station, and some of its programming, including this show, is underwritten by the Rev. Kevin Cosby’s St. Stephen Church, of which Green is a member. The show offered Green yet...

February 25, 2011

David Yates may be a bit naive, but he’s certainly enthusiastic about his new job as a member of the Metro Council. He is pushing to get the Southwest Library built, and believes that new restaurants and other business will come to Dixie Highway once some improvements are made. Take a look:
