Darts and Laurels (8/25/11)

Posted: Updated:

Time for a few more Darts and Laurels.

Our first Laurel goes to Mary Moseley, President and CEO of the Al J. Schneider Companies, for arranging a deal to guarantee $20 million dollars worth of the loans necessary to reopen the Kentucky Kingdom amusement park. This could be the critical piece of the puzzle that allows developer Ed Hart to get the park back into operation by next summer, and Ms. Moseley should be commended for recognizing this project's value to the entire community.

But a Dart goes to Metro Council member Judy Green for her latest attempt to stall the investigation into her alleged ethics violations by claiming medical issues. According to her lawyer, Ms. Green was "admitted to an unnamed hospital for an undisclosed medical condition," which will make it necessary to postpone her hearing for at least a month. 

If true, that would be sufficient reason to grant the delay. But given the fact that no one involved will provide any other details or confirmation of Ms. Green's condition by a medical professional, well…call me skeptical.

And finally, a Laurel goes to the North Oldham Little League team for making it all the way to this year's Little League World Series. Yes, they were eliminated Monday in a thriller against Georgia, but they still gave the hometown fans a lot to cheer about and deserve our congratulations.

I'm Bill Lamb, and that's my…Point of View.
