folks were probably turning in broomhandles with triggers taped to them and the city reported them as "assault rifles." this country has lost its silly mind.

Pay Attention to what our FOP is telling you

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, along with Lexington Mayor Jim Gray, called today on state lawmakers to reform pension payments that are straining both cities' budgets.

Mayor Fischer says Louisville's pension obligations come to 15 percent of the city's general fund, which has risen nine percent over the past seven years.

"The need for reform is now," says Fischer, "we are here to encourage legislators to act on it in this 2013 session and we say we are here to help solve the problem."

Mayor Gray says such payments amount to 20 percent of Lexington's budget. They were only six percent of the city's budget back in 2000. He says the shortfalls are happening because of stock market losses, people living longer, and governments under funding their pension commitments.

"These numbers are not abstractions," says Gray. "These are very real numbers and if you run a business and looking at your balance sheet and your incomes and expenses statement and if it would look like this, you would say this is insane."

Lawmakers say they will take up pension reforms in the upcoming General Assembly.

"We can deal with the problem, it needs to be dealt with, it is a problem that the further down the road we go without dealing with it just gets exacerbated," says the soon to be new president of the Kentucky Senate, Republican Robert Stivers.

Fischer says city services are already being negatively impacted by the pension problem. He says the city is not spending as much money as it should on roads, bridges and other infrastructure.

"Normally we would be spending $8 million a year on that, right now we are spending just $2 million," says the mayor.

The General Assembly begins its 2013 short legislative session Tuesday

public can openly carry into government buildings

January 24th, 2013 @ 6:57PM (10 years ago)

there is an article in the CJ about a law that was passed last year and goes into effect now. It allows the general public to openly carry guns into ANY public / government building. There are exceptions in the law but now we will have guns being brought into City Hall and all the public meetings. The article took an interesting turn when they started to talk about fire fighters being able to carry into their stations. One chief said he did not agree with it because they were there to help people not enforce laws and carry guns. The h3ll with him, like to police never help anyone. They will not even go into runs without the police there to make sure they will be OK. This is in NO WAY a slam to any FF as I know quite a few of them. It is a slam on their administration as they are the ones who set the rules.

What's up with this new trend with some officers now acknowledging radio runs by saying, "I'm good"? I know that it means you are OK on the run, but it sounds really unprofessional IMHO. Street slang has no place in police radio transmissions and it does not make you sound hip or edgy either. How about, "I'm ok on the run", etc. Just saying...

Just saw the email from the great minds in the front office. It appears that Gentry wants to have a "friendly competition" to see which division / unit can come up with the highest total ( $$$ ) of seized assets from the public accused of criminal behavior. Could this not lead to corruption in attempting to get items that normally would not be sought after? They just want to make themselves look good and put more $$$ into the general fund in an effort to justify their existence.
