  • "The Louisville Metro Council unanimously approved a final redistricting map in Thursday night’s full council meeting. The ordinance will now head to Mayor Greg Fischer for final approval. Redistricting is required by state law every 10 years to see every district is fairly represented. This is the first time the merged Metro Government has undergone the process. The map includes new boundaries for all 26 council districts based on the 2010 Census. Council members at Thursday night’s meeting praised the bi-partisan support throughout the redistricting process." [WFPL]

The last study done by Coomes for the Breeders’ Cup pegged the 1998 Cup’s impact at $21 million, or about $28 million when adjusted for inflation." [Courier-Journal]
