Louisville Lights
 
 
Many of you volunteered, or purchased fireworks from the Louisville FireWorks Booth this year. You contributed to the Louisville Holiday Lights Project. Last Wednesday the City Council voted to approve the project and we are now moving forward! This project has been on the BUILD agenda for so many years, I loose count. Recent inspections determined that the lights are in such bad condition, they represent a hazard, and a solution needed to be found.
 
As it got later and later, It seemed highly unlikely that there would be lights for the Holidays and for the Ringing in the Season Festival.
 
All that changed, with the Approval of the City Council and the talents of Lumen Master Joel Jones focused on a long lasting, and beautiful solution. Joel, and Finishing Touches provided a bid for State of the Art LED lighting technology  rated at 10,000 hours continuous duty. Beautiful festive City Lights for a long, long time.
 
The Entire Lights Contract was awarded to Joel Jones, Finishing Touches, (a division of Unlimited Visions, LLC), and Joel  is excited about the project!
 
"I have always liked Decorating for Christmas, said Jones, I am happy to have this job!"
 
Joel, said. "If all goes well, we could be ready for Halloween, but definitely Thanksgiivng looks doable."
 
Kathy Copple, Chairs the important Presentation Committee that focuses on the way Louisville looks to our guests and  travelors. Cathy worked closely with Finishing Touches leading up to the City Council Vote.
 
Thanks to everyone that contributed to this effort!

From the Editor
Tribe 234
You can call me: 2085
 

Community expresses itself in many ways

Generally there is support and there are responsibilities but always there is a sense of ownership; a sense of belonging. As In: I am part of this Community, I belong here. We all need some of that.

 The Community has a right to expect good behavior, and rewards good behavior with priviledges and support. If you mow your lawn, you get a reward. Your reward is Support which can be just a smile, or it can be volunteer firefighters and paramedics rescuing you from a drainage ditch when that tractor rolls on you. If you can't seem to behave, then you get to sit in the klink. and think about your behavior. That is Community.

It's a pretty good deal! Never knew about it, till I got down here. 

I was struck the other day by a passing comment; "Sure, give me a call, 2083!" Pretty obvious to us all what was meant, but I recognized later that there was a membership element to that comment. You had to be from here, for that comment, that invitation to be valid. You had to be a member of the 234 Tribe for that to work. Seems a small matter, but in this sprawling world of cell phones, and IP addresses, and international 22 digit dialing it just struck me as acknowledgment, recognition, and I felt good to be part of this small 234 Tribe. There is a kinship we have with with Manley , and Cedar Creek they are extended members of the Tribe.

Omaha? Lincoln? No Way! Sorry

As a Tribe, we are pretty nicely organized: Look at the Main Street Business windows, and you see: 234-HOME easy to remember if you want to get one. 234-FOOD the MSC is easy to remember if you are getting hungry. Wayne should check into 234-WOOD, and Jared maybe 234-BANK. Jeff should get 234-JEFF or 234-MILK Bob 234-CARS and Maureen 234-NAIL

WireBuilt is 234-2345 Just 234 twice

with an extra "5" stuck on the end for fun.

234-IRINA was too long
