Old Louisville Applies for Weed and Seed Program

Old Louisville may soon join the Shelby Park and Smoketown neighborhoods as part of the Operation Weed and Seed program, administered by the U.S. Department of Justice. The Metro Louisville Department of Neighborhoods has submitted a proposal to have Old Louisville designated as a site for the program. If this is approved, the neighborhood will be eligible for funds late next year.

A steering committee comprised of neighbors met with Department of Neighborhood personnel and representratives from the U.S. Attorney’s office in early October to discuss the proposed strategy for the program. The steering committee began prioritizing goals for the program. Among those goals are improving street lighting, increasing bike patrols, limiting package liquor stores, increasing the number of two-way streets, controlling public intoxication, parking, and loud noise.

Operation Weed and Seed is and innovative and comprehensive multi-agency approach to law enforcement, crime prevention, and community revitalization. It is a strategy which aims to prevent, control, and reduce crime in designated neighborhoods. The strategy involves a two-pronged approach: law enforcement agencies and prosecutors cooperate in "weeding out" criminals who participate in violent crime and drug abuse, attempting to prevent their return to the targeted area; and "seeding" emphasizes human services in the area.
A community-oriented policing component bridges weeding and seeding strategies. Officers obtain information from area residents for weeding efforts while they aid residents in obtaining information about community revitalization and seeding resources. In a time of budget constraints, the program would provide, among other things, much-needed overtime pay for the Fifth District for more policing in the neighborhood.


From the Past:

25th Anniversary of the Old Louisville Journal, 1978-2003:
We’re Gonna Party Like it’s 1982!

An Ad Hoc Committee of the Old Louisville Neighborhood Council has begun plans for a New Year’s Eve Party on December 31, 1982, at the Kling Center, 219 W. Ormsby Ave. Beer, set-ups (soft drinks, ice, etc.), and a live band will be provided. Merry-makers will need to bring their own brand of liquid spirits and munchable foods. The informal gathering will begin at 9:00 PM and go on until 1:00 AM New Years Day. A small per person charge will cover the band and clean-up expenses. If you are interested in helping us plan for the New Year’s Eve Bash, please contact the Information Center staff and a meeting will be arrange to finalize all the details sometime this month.
Editor’s note:
The above article, from the December, 1982, issue of the Old Louisville Neighborhood Council Newsletter, concludes the yearlong observance of the OL Journal’s 25th anniversary. Although no New Year’s Eve party is planned this year, the officers and staff of the Old Louisville Information Center wish everyone a happy holiday season and a healthy, prosperous 2004.


Letter to the Editor

Letter to the Editor:
I wholeheartedly agree with Richard Lowrimore’s letter last month concerning litter in Old Louisville. In citing the top three worst areas, I would like to add one more: entering Old Louisville after crossing Cardinal on Second Street. I live close to DuPont Manual High School, Noe Middle School, and the University of Louisville, and when school is in session, the litter increases in disgusting proportions.

Have you ever looked for "NO LITTERING SIGNS?" Well, I have, and I haven’t been able to find any. I wrote to the Mayor requesting some signs on Second Street close to the schools. Someone was sent to the neighborhood to inspect, and I was told litter did not appear to be a problem. One reason may be that I am constantly cleaning up litter in my block. I was also told that the Mayor is planning on doing a campaign against litter, but when, I don’t know.

Yes, I agree the clean-up should be part of our tax dollars. When there is a special event going on in Old Louisville, many of the residents are out there cleaning up, making our area beautiful for the visitors. Personally, as a resident, I would like to see the area clean at all times, not just when people are coming in from other areas of the county and state.

So, what is the solution to this problem? Hefty fines could be one. If the city cannot afford to staff for such clean up, then why not have some of the prisoners (non-violent) in our jail earn their keep by putting them in a clean-up crew? I have seen them many times on our interstates, doing this type of work.

I urge you to call, write, or email the Mayor concerning this problem. You may also want to mention the high crime rate in this area, which was featured in a story on WHAS recently. This is a bigger problem that must be addressed.

Letter to the Editor

Greetings Neighbors, et. al !

Chris Eagan & Allison Scott-Eagan w/ ReMax Connections, the long time neighborhood residents from down on Hill Street by St. James Ct, once again writing to discuss the "Litter Problem."

This is a problem that Richard Lowrimore has raised in e-mails to everyone, together with letters to the Old Louisville Journal, but it’s nothing new.... For the 21 yrs+ that we’ve been in the neighborhood, LITTER has ALWAYS been a problem in Old Louisville.

But, while out walking the neighborhood showing property recently (or perhaps it was just on one of our daily walks with the Labradors; I can’t remember); we came up with what we believe just might be the PERFECT solution to this neighborhood "Litter Problem":

First of all, it must be acknowledged that PEOPLE cause LITTER. Wherever there are people, there is GOING to be Litter; simple as that. So, if you acknowledge that, it only stands to reason that MORE people cause MORE LITTER..... i.e. a 10 or 20 unit Apartment Building is going to produce FAR more Litter than a single family home.
Secondly, it must be acknowledged that it is a natural tendency & inclination of most people to care for what they own, try to take care of same & keep same clean"..... Conversely, it’s a natural tendency & inclination of most people to have utter disregard for what they DON’T own. It’s the classic "Tragedy of Commons" scenario.

So, if you accept these 2 premises as valid, it only stands to reason (you should see where we’re headed with this...) that THE APARTMENT BUILDINGS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD PRODUCE THE BULK OF THE LITTER IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD!!

Granted, not all single family owner-occupants are "Neat Freaks" or saints; far from it. But, if you walk the alley between St. James Ct. & the 1400 Block of 4th (or ANYWHERE ELSE in the neighborhood), you’ll see what we mean: it’s not the single family homes with huge piles of crap behind them & beer bottles on the lawn, etc., etc.. It’s the APARTMENT buildings: PARTICULARLY the ones that contain large numbers of units & house the frat boys, the college kids, the "Slumlord"-owned, small, low-income rental units, etc., etc.

Further the residents of these places are going to tend to have more rowdy parties filled with even MORE people who don’t care about "junking up" the neighborhood....

So, if all we’ve stated is recognized as true, the solution seems simple....

Metro Government should be pushed to hire street cleaners for the Old Louisville neighborhood, who would come through at least once weekly & pick up all the litter, push people’s trash cans back onto their lots, generally tidy up the area, etc., etc.

Rather than further burdening the strained Metro budget, the COST of these weekly street cleaners’ activity would be borne by a new tax that the City would assess every property owner in the district & the amount of the tax would be on a graduated scale depending on how many RENTAL units are in each structure, with LANDLORDS with a higher amount of apartment units in their buildings being required to pay a higher percentage of the tax than Single Family Residential owner-occupants.

As these landlords of high-unit-concentration buildings are bringing these people to the neighborhood who trash it, shouldn’t it be only fair that these same landlords bear the brunt of the cost of CLEANING UP the neighborhood? Don’t you agree?

This is just an IDEA that we’ve come up with.... an idea that obviously needs considerable refinement. But, please let us know what you think of the idea.

If enough people out there think the idea sounds valid, maybe we can meet and agree on a specific proposal based on that idea, form it into a petition, and then go to the City with the proposal and push it through.

So, let us know what you think.... We’d love all your feedback.

Thanks & Very Best Regards,
Chris & Allison Egan

Gone With the Wind

Piles of brown leaves on lawns, sidewalks, and streets are all that remain of the summer foliage. Those leaves can be slippery and dangerous to pedestrians, and they can clog the grates of storm sewers and cause street flooding in downpours.

It is the responsibility of property owners to perform general maintenance to the middle of the street and back alley of their property.

Help keep Old Louisville safe and attractive by raking your leaves and bagging them for yard waste recycling on Wednesdays, or add them to your compost heap.


Happy Holidays!

They are finally here!

At long last, fifteen new park benches and trash cans have been installed in Central Park.

These benches and cans were purchased through the generosity of Old Louisville individuals and neighborhood associations, Metro Council Representative George Unseld, the Louisville Olmsted Parks Conservancy, and matching funds from Metro Parks.

The fifteen Central Park settees are reproductions of the benches originally introduced into New York Central Park in 1858. The fifteen Bethesda-series trash cans feature a graceful outward curve at the top.

Fifth District Holiday Safety Tips

During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, we should always keep safety in mind. The Louisville Metro Police Department 5th District would like to give you a few quick safety hints:

  • Always take items in from the car or lock them in the truck out of sight. Our number one problem in the Old Louisville area is theft from auto.

  • Make sure you don’t carry large amounts of cash. This is the season when robberies are at their peak. Carry a credit card, and put it in your front pocket. This way you stand a decreased chance of being pick pocketed. Ladies, let’s leave the purses at home. This is just one more thing to be grabbed, taken, or left during the confusion of the season. A credit card can be shut down immediately and traced when used. When cash is stolen, it’s just gone.

  • When on your all-day holiday shopping marathon, be mindful of where you park and who’s in the parking lot. If you park early in the morning or afternoon and plan to shop into the evening hours, be sure to park where there will be plenty of light and foot traffic upon leaving the store. If you see someone who looks suspicious in the parking lot or store, tell store employees so they can call security, or call us at 574-7111. Most stores will provide an escort to your car upon request, so don’t hesitate to ask.

  • Unfortunately, our burglaries increase during holiday seasons also. Take extra care to leave extra lights on, inside and out your home. Lighting is a cheap way of deterring criminals. It’s only a few cents a day to keep porch lights on all night long. Burglars feel that people will see them and that they are more vulnerable; they’re right. The police and people who pass by are more apt to see what is going on with lighting.

  • Make sure you lock your doors and windows, and if you go to visit family or relatives, call the Fifth District and request a free house watch. For more information, call 574-7010. You should also let a trusted neighbor know you’re leaving so they can be an extra set of eyes and ears.

  • As soon as possible, all new electrical goods and valuables should have identifying numbers recorded or engraved, and pictures and appraisals should be done for jewelry and other such items. This will insure that if you are a victim, the police have something to trace your property to you when recovered.

  • Last but not least, don’t drink and drive. We want you to enjoy a safe, accident-free holiday. If you see a friend who has had too much to drink, don’t let him or her drive. Call a cab or have a sober friend drive home.
    The Fifth District Louisville Metro Police Department wishes everyone a safe, fun, crime-free holiday season!


Cook’s Corner: Food is Love

The holidays are a favorite time for reminiscing. The decorations from years gone by are brought out and family rituals like baking and caroling put us in touch with holidays past in a way that we want to carry on to future generations. Even though I would never eat a mincemeat pie, I love the way it makes the house smell when it bakes. The special foods of the holidays help us really dig deeply into our memory banks. Recipes given by a treasured friend, rich dishes forbidden the rest of the year but savored during these special times, and the old standbys that make the holidays the holidays, all of these make us look back with nostalgia and to the future with good spirit. 

For the holiday edition of Cooks’ Corner we feature some of the classic recipes from the holiday files of Old Louisville’s kitchens.

Joan Stewart, an Ouerbacker Court resident, recalls an English trifle recipe. This dessert is memorable to her not only because of its tastiness but also because of its source. It was given to Joan years ago by one of her special students at Manual who later attended the Air Force Academy.

All Seasons Lemon Fruit Trifle
(Joan Stewart)

Cream Filling:
1-1/4 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
8 oz. low fat lemon yogurt
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tsp. grated lemon peel
8 oz. frozen whipped topping or 2 cups sweetened whipped cream

Mix the first four ingredients and then fold in topping or cream and set aside.

Cake: Either make an angel food cake according to directions or use a bought cake. Cut cake into one inch cubes. Joan sometimes adds a little lemon pound cake to the mix.

Fruit: Wash and drain your favorite fruits. If using large fruits, cut into bite size pieces. Joan likes to use berries, mandarin oranges, and sliced kiwi fruit. Need approximately 5 – 6 cups of mixed fruits.

To Assemble: Using large trifle bowl begin with a layer of 1/3 of the cake, then 1/3 of the fruit, then 1/3 of the cream mixture. Alternate these two more times. Joan usually garnishes the last cream layer on top with pineapple, kiwi, and mint leaves. She says to let the trifle set for at least an hour before serving.

From 6th Street Sam Dorr contributes two recipes for soups that have been requested repeatedly as a part of his holiday fare. Served the first time around these are delicious meal starters and, even better, they make great comfort food to come home to on a cold winter’s night.

Sam writes, " This first soup is a cream of peanut soup that we introduced at the Holiday House Tour Victorian Tea in 1996. I wish I could say that I created it, but alas I cannot. The soup comes from the Williamsburg Cookbook published in 1971 by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. It is a wonderful soup that can add a creative flair to any dinner party.

King’s Arms Tavern Cream of Peanut Soup
(Sam Dorr)

1 medium onion
3 tbsps. all purpose flour
2 ribs celery
2cups smooth peanut butter
¼ cup butter
2 quarts chicken (preferably homemade)
1 ¾ cups light cream chopped peanuts

Sauté onion and celery in butter until soft, but not brown. Stir in flour until well blended. Add chicken stock, stirring constantly, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and rub through a sieve. Add peanut butter and cream, stirring to blend thoroughly. Return to low heat, but do not boil, until ready to serve. Garnish with chopped peanuts.

Sam writes, "This recipe will serve 10-12 people. For the Tea we made 400 servings. I couldn’t look at peanut butter for a year afterwards!" Sam continues, "I introduced the next soup at the Victorian Tea in 1992. It was warmly received and numerous people have asked for the recipe over the years. It is also not my original creation but rather appeared in the old Courier-Journal Magazine issued November 24, 1988 under the title, "A Victorian Christmas." It is easy and can be made the day before it is to be served."

Tomato Soup
(Sam Dorr)

4 tbsps. butter
½ lb. carrots peeled and chopped
2 oz. chopped bacon or country ham
½ cup flour
1 ½ lbs. fresh or canned tomatoes
1 tsp. thyme
2 14 ½ oz. cans chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
pinch of sugar cream or sour cream

Melt the butter in a large pot and cook the carrots and bacon (or country ham) covered about 20 minutes. Add the flour and cook 2-3 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, open the tomatoes. If not already chopped, do so. Add the canned tomatoes to the pot along with the thyme. Cook about 30 minutes more. Being very careful and working in batches, place in blender and puree until smooth. Return to pot. Add the chicken broth along with 1 can water. Return to the boil, adding salt, pepper and your pinch of sugar. At this point you may remove it from the heat, cool it, and store it in the refrigerator until needed. When ready to serve, slowly reheat it. Serve the soup in large bowls garnished with cream or sour cream.

Sam writes, "The recipe serves 6 people, but I think they are rather skimpy servings. Since the recipe doubles, triples, quadruples, etc. easily, I would suggest at least doubling it. What is left over you can enjoy by the fire with a good book!"

Susan Rostov of Ormsby Court contributes a recipe from her holidays past with a good Jewish mother story. "My mother and her friend were in charge of making the kugel for a fund raising dinner at our synagogue. Mother, whose cooking was widely known and respected, cooked without a recipe. But that was for family. In the case of the fund raiser, she had to use sixty-five pounds of noodles! That was a little difficult to season, so she was forced to make a recipe. I’m grateful for that and hope you will be too. Noodle kugel is an excellent dish for a brunch or even served hot as a dessert."

Noodle Kugel
(Susan Rostov)

½ lb. thin noodles, cooked and drained
Mix all of the following ingredients;

1 cup sour cream
1 cup cottage cheese
2 eggs
½ stick melted butter
6 tbsps. sugar
1 tsp. salt
Optional:
cinnamon to taste
raisins
Add the cooked noodles to the sour cream mixture. Bake at 350 in a greased 8x8 square pan for an hour or until browned.

***

Another holiday challenge is the making of leftovers which don’t really seem like leftovers. I have two such recipes from my collection which are a favorite in my West St. Catherine Street household. The first is a turkey casserole that incorporates many of the turkey trimmings. Sometimes I make this from scratch without the benefit of leftovers because my crew likes it so much.

Turkey Casserole
(Peggy Cummins)

3 -4 cups leftover turkey (make use of the scraps that are not really "sandwich-worthy")
1 family size can cream of mushroom soup (if you have leftover gravy include it here)
2 cans mushrooms drained (stems and pieces)
2 cans mixed Chinese vegetables drained (I usually use LaChoy brand but whatever you use make sure they include water chestnuts for a good crunch)
6 cups leftover stuffing (can supplement by adding in Stovetop Stuffing)

Spread a layer of ½ of the stuffing over the bottom of a 9x13 pan or casserole dish. Mix together the soup/gravy, mushrooms, and Chinese vegetables and spread ½ of this mixture over the stuffing layer. Layer all the turkey pieces over this. Spread the rest of the soup mixture over the turkey, and finish with a top layer of the remaining stuffing. Bake in a 350 over for ½ hour or until brown on top.

This can be assembled ahead of time, refrigerated, and cooked for slightly longer if you want to plan ahead for a busy day.

My second recipe for holiday leftovers I got from a rather kooky PBS cooking show, Amish Cooking from Quilt Country. It uses up those leftover ham scraps and is great served as a holiday dip with cocktail rye. It is also a good Super Bowl Sunday dish in that its best accompaniment is beer. Spread on rye bread and toasted it makes a very good reuben. Don’t worry, they’ll never know it’s sauerkraut!

Amish Ham Spread
(Peggy Cummins)

3 cans sauerkraut drained and rinsed (use a hearty not sweetened variety, like Stokley’s)
2 cups ham scraps (again the not "sandwich worthy")
1 cup grated swiss cheese
¾ cup mayonnaise
2 tbsps. Dijon mustard
2 tsps. caraway seeds
Chop ham or pulse briefly in food processor (don’t over process). Turn out into a bowl and mix in other ingredients. I’ll sometimes fill a hollowed round of rye or pumpernickel with this dip to take to parties.

Best wishes for your holiday cooking and family gatherings from Cooks’ Corner!
Peggy Cummins
