Darts and Laurels (8/14/08)
Time for a few more Darts and Laurels.
First a Dart goes to Kimberly Bunton, former head of Louisville's Housing and Family Services Department, who appears to have been caught improperly funneling over $2,000 of city money to her mother.
The original offense was bad enough. But her self-serving "apology" that basically implied she really did nothing wrong -- it only seemed that way -- was arrogant and insulting.
Next, a big Laurel to Jeffersonville's George Rogers Clark team that's heading to the Little League World Series after winning last week's Great Lakes Regional.
The last time we had Little League Fever around here was in 2002 when Louisville's Valley Sports team won the championship. That was big fun, and I certainly wish the Hoosiers the same kind of success.
And finally, a Laurel goes to Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway, who seems serious about his desire to solve the mystery surrounding the Louisville area's unusually high gas prices.
This is one example of an elected official actually dealing with an issue that makes a real difference to his constituents. And any time that happens, it should definitely be encouraged.
I'm Bill Lamb, and that's my...Point of View.
