Not a Problem — Metro Council Should Pass on Home Sharing Regulations

by John “Hans” Gilderbloom and Rick Redding A group of home-sharing opponents recently engineered an unwarranted attack on the ability of many Louisville homeowners to rent portions of their homes to out-of-town guests.  These attacks threaten income streams of more than a thousand middle-class homeowners who have joined millions around the globe in offering their unique spaces to visitors. The Metropolitan Housing Coalition and others have presented information not supported by research, and sought to block and/or put up roadblocks to home sharing homeowners. In fact, home sharing can lead to better and more affordable housing options. Home sharing is as tied…

Louisville Uncovered presents: US Marine Hospital

The United States Marine Hospital: Portland, Kentucky The Ohio River has been the lifeblood of Louisville since the beginning of the River City. Back then river traffic had the nighty Ohio looking more like Spaghetti Junction than a lazy river. It was a pleasure to get an insiders look at the hospital as it stands today on Louisville Uncovered!  In 1837, Congress authorized the construction of the U.S. Marine Hospital in Louisville “for the benefit of sick seamen, boatmen, and other navigators on the western rivers and lakes.” (Ohio and Mississippi rivers and Great Lakes.) At this time, steamboats dominated…

My good friends at Verizon asked me to write a story about what journalism was like before technology came along and messed everything up. Here’s what I came up with:  These days, it seem like I’m the only one who remembers what a telecopier is. At the risk of sounding like that old man who claims to have walked a mile to school every day (I actually did that), I’m lucky to have worked as a journalist in the pre-Internet era. The days when journalism was accomplished with typewriters, telecopiers and notebooks are long gone, and I’ve been fortunate enough to adapt…


Journal Day 4: Differing Views on a Perfect Golf Day

Our Journal Project – Day 4 LUKE: School today was filled with constitution packets, notes, physic quizzes, and boring French stuff. This is my first day of my journal where I had work at least. I work at Wildwood private golf course so most days lately have been real slow. Today was an exception holy I didn’t sit down once since I got there (I clean the carts, store them, clean members clubs, take care of the driving range, talk to members etc.). I can’t blame them though it was probably gonna be the best day til the end of winter to play.  That’s…
