  • Small businesses are a big deal

    By Lance Minnis

    I would hope that most readers of the Localare aware, by now, of the debate raging in our community about the proposed CVS Pharmacy and its possible impacts. Many of us were not aware that such a thing was contemplated by city government, or that property owners had been approached to sell, until too late in the process to do much about it.

    According to one local funeral home, it’s getting more and more difficult to have “dignified funerals,” in part because of noisy neighbors.

    Clyde Sholar, co-owner of Sholar Funeral Home in Pleasureville approached the city commission recently to tackle what he sees as an increasingly noisy problem.

    Whether it’s loud music or barking dogs, Sholar said “people are not respecting when we have visitation and when we have funerals.”

  • Troxell receives Bell Award

    Polly Troxell will gladly bug anyone for a good cause, but can’t stand getting awards even from a television station.

    The WLKY Spirit of Louisville awarded Troxell and 10 other individuals who work as volunteers and give their time selflessly in the spirit of community service with the Bell Award.

    WLKY presented the awards at a ceremony in the Galt House last Thursday and Troxell humbly admits she wishes they could’ve just mailed it to her.
