WAVE 3 Editorial - Sept. 8, 2011: Feedback

By Ken Selvaggi
WAVE 3 Vice President & General Manager

Our editorial "Downtown Retail" spawned plenty of feedback.

Joe emailed: "Louisville likes to think that it's a major city but when I see young people fleeing in droves because of the job climate, it reminds me of the small town that I moved from ... until Louisville starts acting like a city and less a small town, nothing will change."

Linda responded: "You can spend all the money you want down there, but a lot of us just don't want to deal with the lack of parking and the distances one has to walk to get to a venue."

Matt countered with this email: "I'd rather try to find a place to park downtown than try to find a place to park in Oxmoor or the Mall in St. Matthews. Or even deal with that entire I-264/Shelbyville Road interchange.  More power to those who live, work and shop in the core of our city!"

Regarding our "Making Kids Count" editorial, Carmen suggested the funding priorities for children should focus on early childhood education programs, health care access and family food banks.

We encourage and appreciate all of your feedback.
