This morning I found water in the floor of my car. The leak has returned to my Chevy Impala.

I'd like to blame this leak on the rain but I blame General Motors for manufacturing a lemon and not taking responsibility for it. This would be the fifth time my car has leaked since I bought it five years ago.

Severe weather in Louisville, KY this morning

On the way to work this morning I almost got stuck in a little flash flood. I along with about 20 others took refuge at the Thorntons gas station. The rain was rising fast. Weather folks are saying we got about 6 inches of rain in about 1 hour.

Derby Beat Down

At the Kentucky Derby the cops tell this drunk man to take a walk before the video begins to start. He decides not to walk away and sits by these people. I agree that he should have listened to them but did the officer need to beat him in the neck after they already had him on the ground?

Columbine students return as teachers

Last night this story about former Columbine students was featured on NBC Nightly News.  I'm not sure if I were in their place I would be able to walk those halls every again.  Take a moment and learn about their story.  I remember watching this terrible tragedy unfold from my dorm room at Presbyterian College.  It was a disturbing experience to watch live on television.  My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those that were lost and with those that survived.

Carmichael’s Bookstore of Louisville, KY Wins Bookseller of the Year

Carmichael’s Bookstore has been voted PW’s Bookseller of the Year, while Tom Benton has taken the award as Rep of the Year. Carmichael’s finished first in a close race with several other nominees, while Benton had a more comfortable edge.
Founded in 1978 in Louisville, Ky., by Carol Besse and Michael Boggs, Carmichael’s is still owned by the couple and employs seven other full-time employees plus 13 part-timers. The Besse-Boggs team owns two stores in Louisville, the 976-sq.-ft. store on Louisville’s Bardstown Road and the 1,521-sq.-ft store on Frankfort Avenue. Both stores are located in historic buildings and reflect the tastes of the owners. Carmichael’s has been in touch enough with its customers that over the past 10 years sales have doubled and profits tripled.
Benton has been a sales rep for almost 25 years and now works for Penguin.
Both Carmichael’s and Benton will receive their awards at a presentation at this year’s BEA and will be featured in PW’s April 27 pre-BEA issue.

Presbyterian headquarters announces furloughs and no salary increases in 2010

Today General Assembly Council staff members here in Louisville, KY were told that the GAC executive committee approved an unpaid one-week furlough May 17-23 and will receive no salary increases in 2010.  This effects Gina since the youth ministry office is part of the GAC.  However this doesn't effect me in my work with the Presbyterian Publishing Corporation.  Of course this does effect me as her husband.  Please keep all the staff in your thoughts and prayers.  Especially those one income families that depend on every pay check.

You can read more about these decisions by following these links below.
