Tons of great restaurants for a city of its size. Relative diversity of population. Good community leaders.

We live in Prospect about 25 minutes away from downtown - so many streams, waterfalls, marinas, boats and of course the river. We had friends from California visit last year and we took them to Captain's Quarters and ate outside on the deck overlooking the river - the weather was fabulous and there was a regatta going on - all the sails were white and they turned around right in front of CQ's - our friends were so impressed. We drove them around our area - all the beautiful old homes up in the hills above River Road and the lovely homes of Indian Hills - this was hardly what they had expected of Kentucky. We love the trees, cows, horse farms and gorgeous mansions and sweet little cottages that dot the countryside. We are originally from So. California too so we are much more into bucolic than we are busy downtown areas (we have had a lifetime of traffic and noise) - although we do go out to some fabulous restaurants downtown, see plays and go to musicals - we really like downtown too.

Could you please cite some examples of who you consider to be in this group. This is one of the area's that I think Louisville is really lacking in. It seems like all of the leaders are only in leadership positions for their own good, not that of the community. I'd like to hear who you think it's a good community leader and doing it for the benefit of the community.

There is no doubt about Dr. James Ramsey, President of U of L. Mr. Joe Tolan, President of Metro United Way, my wife, Gale Cox, recently retired HR Director of Kentucky Farm Bureau Insurance and on Board of Metro United Way, Barry Barker, CEO of TARC, David Jones and the late Wendell Cherry, Irv and Kathy Bailey, Greg Fischer, current Mayor, Steve Langford (recently retired from WAVE-TV), Charlie Moyer, retired Dean of U of L College of Business, Harold Workman, CEO of Kentucky Fair Board. Junior Bridgeman, the late Lenny Lyles, Rebecca Jackson, former County Judge Executive of Jefferson Co. & Kentucky Derby Festival, Kevin Cosby, Pastor of St. Stephens Baptist Church, Stan Curtis of Kentucky Harvest, and 1000's more. I recommend a subscription to Business First to get a weekly dose of so many women and men who are providing extra-ordinary leadership in creating jobs, job opportunities, healthy homes, quality living, and fabulous charitiable services and human care.

You have cited some great leaders that I had not thought about. Some of the ones you cited, Mayor Fischer, Mr. Workman etc. I really don't have a lot of praise for because they just continued to cost the citizens of Louisville more money without providing any additional benefits. The politics of Louisville are just as corrupt as they ever have been or maybe even worse. They also cater to those who complain the loudest and cause the most problems instead of those who really need help from the gov't. The fair board doesn't seem to worry about services being able to afford even free events at the fairgrounds considering the $8.00 parking fee!

I do subscribe to business first and have since moving here with my corporation. Some of the names you mentioned I do recognize but some of the other ones (including your wife) I don't recognize.

I supported Hal Heiner for mayor, but Fisher has done as well as possible with the current Metro Council.
