New Water Mains!Dee's Corner
After meeting with the residents of Depot Street and discussing their concerns, the City is moving as quickly as possible to install the long awaited water mains connecting the new water wells and the new water treatment plant.
The goal for years has been to provide Louisville residents with some of the best darn water, this side of the Platte. What you see is the next step in getting that done.
The Honorable Mayor Mueller gave me some of his time this afternoon to assure us that the inconvenience of construction, will be as short as possible and every effort is being made to accommodate residents and businesses for what should be 2 weeks at most. No guarantee, but probably less than 2 weeks.

Access to Gambino's Pizza, Quick Pik, Bank of Cook, Subway and the Car Wash is open so get in there and buy stuff.
Lets help these guys through this couple of weeks
Mayor Mueller informs me that representatives of Burlington Northern railroad are considering using this period of down time to fix their tracks and make that bumpy patch smoother.
(Wouldn't that be nice?)
If you happen to meet any Burlington-Northern folks, it might help to encourage them to seriously consider this opportunity
Louisville Volunteer Firefighters
Thanking our local Smoke-Eaters
The country had a real gut-check this week with the shocking news out of South Carolina. 9 Brave Firefighters died, Click Here doing their job. Last week a volunteer firefighter was fired-on by some cretin in Ashland Click Here so I guess there are more dangers then just the fire in fire fighting.
The best thing that we can do here, is to take a minute to honor and appreciate our own Louisville Volunteer Fire Fighters. It is just amazing to me when you consider that these guys risk their lives, give up their free time to protect us and buy Don't wait until God-forbid we have a tragedy of our own to say thanks to these brave neighbors.

Common Sense is Not Common
by Mark Leibman
"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."
When poet Robert Frost penned these words in the last century, he captured a world of
unexpected discoveries. While we appreciate the romantic aspects of the verse, it also
has value as an introduction to contrarian investing.
Many people invest at the wrong time, then sell at the wrong time to buy something else
at the wrong time. When you think of the massive capital that poured into glamour
growth stocks in early 2000, or gold in 1980 at the peak, or the massive capital that came
out of the stock market at the bottom in 2002 to be invested in bonds near their peak, it
seems clear that the ‘well-traveled road’ can lead to disastrous losses.
Conventional wisdom is not wise, and common sense is not common.
The human character traits that push a declining market down too far, and raise a rising
market to prices far in excess of fundamental value are exactly that - human character
traits. A whole new science, behavioral economics, is studying the phenomenon. Our
investment theory is, if markets tend to excess and people usually buy at the wrong time,
taking the road less traveled may make all the difference.
Certainly, in 2000 when it seemed as if everybody was buying Microsoft-Cisco-Intel-
Oracle-Qualcomm and the rest of the tech stocks, one who bought out-of-favor
stocks ended up with handsome gains in names like Union Pacific, Berkshire
Hathaway, and Commercial Federal - while those tech stocks got hammered.
One who bought out-of-favor junk bonds like Level 3 and Calpine at discounts of
30 to 70 cents on the dollar (from 2002-2005) ultimately enjoyed high yields and
One who bought out-of-favor treasury bonds in 1982 after their worst performance
in history, when ‘the death of the bond market’ was on business magazine covers,
enjoyed 15% interest for twenty years.
Among the broad market sectors, history shows numerous examples of one year’s worst-performing sector becoming the next year’s best performer - and vice versa.
“The first shall be last and the last shall be first."
There are no guarantees in the investment markets, and past performance does not
guarantee future results. Out-of-favor investments may lose value, and what seems
cheap may become cheaper. Nevertheless, by choosing the road less traveled, we may
increase our possibilities.
