Louisville’s Urban Bourbon Movement - Newgeography.com
As a spirt, bourbon is heavily associated with the state of Kentucky. But while major spirits firm Brown-Forman is located in Louisville, traditionally bourbon was distilled in rural – and ironically, dry – counties like, say, Bourbon County.

But Louisville has managed to stake out a position for itself as the basecamp for Kentucky’s bourbon trail. Also, there’s been a major move of distillers into the city. There are micro-distilleries everywhere these days, but what distinguishes Louisville here is the big money that’s been poured into in-city facilities.

Broadband Boondoggles in Southwest Virginia - Bacon's Rebellion
Throughout the Central Appalachian region — Virginia, West Virginia and Kentucky — community leaders have a keen understanding that they must find new industries to replace coal. And there is a near universal conviction that any hope to diversify local economies requires high-bandwidth connections to the outside world. This conviction has led to a series of initiatives, some misguided and some on target, to bring broadband to this isolated region.

Location, regional growth, technology all make Northern Kentucky banks valuable partners - The Lane Report
As banker Mer Grayson Jr. recalls, when Drees Homes needed a loan of about $1 million for its corporate headquarters on Grandview Drive in Fort Mitchell, three Northern Kentucky banks decided to team up to share the risk on a construction loan that was considered to be pretty hefty around 1980.

How things have changed.

No one suggests million-dollar transactions are now equivalent to lunch money in Northern Kentucky. But a fortunate combination of factors – the region’s location, its growth, new technology, and critical changes in state and federal banking regulations – mean it is far easier for businesses today to get several proposals when they’re searching for capital to build, operate and grow.
