Time for a few more Darts and Laurels.
First, a Laurel goes to Amazon and Café Press for their recent announcements of expansion into the Greater Louisville area. Amazon's plan to open a new fulfillment center in Jeffersonville by 2015 -- adding over 1,000 jobs to the region – is welcome news by itself. But I'm even more impressed by Café Press, which is really jumping in with both feet by relocating its corporate headquarters to Louisville from California, and bringing almost 600 new jobs along for the ride.
Next, quite honestly I don't know whether to give Jefferson County Public Schools a Dart or Laurel for its latest personnel move. I suppose they deserve a Laurel for saving $3.2 million annually by eliminating a number of jobs from their Central Office. But learning that just 30 people – who have now been deemed unnecessary – were being paid that $3.2 million every year in the first place seems a little more Dart-worthy.
And finally, let's give a Laurel to the construction crews that managed to finish the recent Kennedy Bridge work a full two days ahead of schedule. It may not seem like much, but every morning or evening without lane closures is a real blessing for interstate commuters, and I'm sure they appreciated it.
