  • "The group Concerned Citizens for District 1 called Councilwoman Judy Green’s treatment a 'lynching' on a sign-in sheet at a rally held for Green on Thursday night at Rev. Louis H. Coleman Jr. Community Center. Several community members spoke and around 50 attended, including Green and her husband James Green. Many said they were upset about the Green’s treatment in Metro Council and questioned whether the body was treating Green unfairly because of her race. More importantly, they said, they’re concerned that removing Green will disenfranchise their community." [WFPL]
  • "The Louisville Orchestra on Thursday canceled the four concerts it was scheduled to perform in November because of the discord between management and musicians over a new collective bargaining agreement. The prior contract expired May 31. Orchestra CEO Robert Birman said Thursday evening that the orchestra has set a policy to cancel any concerts at least 60 days in advance if the orchestra and its musicians do not have an agreement."
