Public Hearing Set For Cane Run Ash Dump

On Tuesday, May 25, the Kentucky Division of Waste Management will conduct a public hearing on LG&E's request to build a toxic coal ash landfill at the Cane Run power plant. The hearing will take place at 7pm at Conway Middle School.

From the Courier-Journal:

The proposed 60-acre, $54 million dump would eventually extend as high as a 14-story building in an area now largely occupied by transmission lines.

The complete Courier Journal story is HERE.
More detailed information on the dump and the hearing can be found HERE.

Meet The New Boss...Same As The Old Boss

Louisvillians said to suffer from "Abramson Fatigue" elect Fischer, Heiner; Get Fooled Again.

The majority of primary voters that bothered to show up at their polling places today made themselves clear: "More of the same, please." So much for that "voter anger" the media was peddling.  Here are the results for Mayor and Southwest Louisville council primaries. There will be additional analysis when the numbers by precinct are available.

- Hal Heiner and Greg Fischer are the two party's mayoral candidates for November.  Burrel Farnsley finished last. That means no bars open 24/7.  And an ocean of concrete poured downtown for a 23-lane superhighway. And a couple of bridges. And an Abramson clone in Greg "Ice, Ice, Baby" Fischer. Because that's what the old-money Louisville elites want. This should help put an end to all this talk about Louisville and that pesky "positive future" nonsense. Are you ready for four (4) more years? I hope so.

- John Brewer beat Ed Springston like a 10-cent hooker in the 28th District State House Republican Primary. I do not know John Brewer and I have never met him, but a man I spoke with this evening told me he thought John was "about as sharp as a sack of wet mice." Interesting.

- Robert Thrasher's message went over like a fart in church as Doug Hawkins whipped the good Doctor and will face David Yates in November for the 25th Metro Council District seat.

- Vicki Aubrey Welch turned back negative robo-calls and handbills from you-know-who as she beat Larry Roger Price like a gong in the 13th Metro Council District primary.

Thanks for making The Valley Report a part of your day.  The site has, over the last few weeks, registered some pretty hot stats for such a low-rent operation. How hot? Hotter than a three-peckered billy goat. It's so hot around here, I might have to invent an ice machine to cool it off.

Keep the faith, people.

2010 Primary - News of the Weird

It has been a strange and exciting primary election season.  I hope you took the time to vote today.  Until the results come in I thought it might be fun to list some of the more bizarre tales surrounding the campaigns for Louisville mayor.

- Greg Fischer invents ice machine. Maybe. 

- Chris Thieneman exchanges yard work for votes.

- Greg Fischer's son steals Jim King signs.

- Connie Marshall is being followed by the FBI.

Feel free to add to this list.
