Louisville Financial Editorial
Stock Market Outlook from 228 Main…
By Mark Leibman

When I add it up, I think the positives outweigh the negatives and we are at, or near the end, of the stock market decline.

I believe the market is now significantly undervalued. Of course, my opinion is not going to turn this market higher. It will take continued growth in the economy and company earnings and a renewal of investor confidence.

However, I am confident that economic growth will continue and that a growing economy will generate higher company earnings and bring this bear market to an end. When market psychology turns, the stock market may move up quickly.

Going to cash now would be, in my opinion, a mistake. I firmly believe the best defense remains a well-diversified portfolio.
World Herald Public Pulse Letter 7/24/2002
Throw the Looters in Jail
The stock market continues to fall even as the economy grows. Car sales, home-building, even waiting lines at restaurants point to underlying strength. One of the reasons behind this paradox is that Americans cannot understand how it is possible for even a single corporate looter to commit acts of fraud and other felonies, and still be free to walk the streets.
Why should a person who has gained tens of millions of dollars through fraud be treated any better than a burglar or car thief? America needs to see one of these wise guys handcuffed, in a courtroom, on his way to jail pending trial. We need to see the sheriff padlocking the gate on the mansion built with ill-gotten gains.
Isn't there a county prosecutor, state attorney general, or Justice Department official who can figure out that stealing is a crime and needs to be punished? The American system is too strong to be down for long, but a return to justice would go a long way toward healing the wounds of the recent past.

Thank You Sunderland Family!
New fire truck was put in service July 15th!!
Click HERE to See it!

$50,000 was donated by the Sunderland Family Foundation, and the rest was raised by a bond issue through the rural fire district. Keep in mind, such trucks are really expensive, this one is about $177,000, it is brand new 2002 model, has foam system,2-stage pump, high pressure and volume. With it our Louisville volunteers can fight fires more successfully.

By the way, if you would like to try your hand at being a hero, the Fire Department Recruiting Committee is looking for more volunteers!

Your application will be sent to the Sheriff's office for approval, then a committee considers your application and if you are approved you will be taking classes on both fire and rescue during first 6 months of probation. To keep volunteers close to fire or rescue vehicles, applicants need to live in Louisville or within about 1 mile of city limits.

For more information and to apply Call Randy Payne 234-2254.
Thanks to our Good Friend Darlene Holmes, we have these beautiful pictures to share: Click Here!

What the Cat Saw...
Hi Hardware Cat Fans!

I gotta stop volunteering for stuff. I just can't say no, when that Mayor Dan comes around with some idea about improving the City, I am always first in line to do my part. Ya know, the guy has just endless ideas and , well,.. look around ya at all the stuff that is going on, but .. HEY.. I am just a CAT what can I do???

Turns out I am now responsible for some kinda environmental statistics.

I just keep track of how many folks walk into the hardware store and say,.. "Hot enough for ya?..." which recently is most of 'em...

So, the next time you walk into the Hardware Store and ask,.. "Hot enough for YA??" and I just look away like I'm uninterested, well...I am just taking notes!  Meow!
Having fun, and Helping the Mayor south of the river....

Hank the Hardware Cat
