Louisville news: Already sick of hearing about UK (and, no, I'm not a UofL fan) edition [News]

  • "Louisville leaders sought to assure upset Rubbertown-area residents Monday night that remedies are forthcoming soon for what many believe is an inadequate warning system for incidents like last week's deadly chemical plant explosion. More than 200 residents packed the Southwick Community Center, with many complaining they were not properly notified after the March 21 explosion and fire that fatally injured two workers at Carbide Industries on Bells Lane."

  • "Louisville didn’t make it onto the 2011 Thomson-Reuters list of 100 best U.S. hospitals, though one near-by town did. The nearest facility on the list is Flaget Memorial Hospital outside Bardstown in Nelson County, about 45 miles south of Louisville. Flaget made the list of best small community hospitals."
