Wednesday, 17 September 2008 00:00
    The City of Salem Common Council met in regular session on Monday, September 8, with all members present.
The minutes of previous meetings and all claims were approved unanimously.
    Citing a lack of specific details in a request by Salem Municipal Airport Board of Aviation Commissioners (BOAC) President, Bill Barnett, for the Council to grant the BOAC the authority to begin negotiating a lease/purchase of the existing airport for special weekend events and the eventual sale of the facility, Salem Mayor David Bower said that the Council would have to take the request under advisement.
    In telephone interviews with members of the BOAC, it was learned that multiple meetings between Bower,
Common Council President, Wally Turkhorn, different BOAC members, and the respective attorneys for the BOAC
and the Common Council have taken place in preparation for Barnett’s request on Monday night.
    “I’m not quite sure what happened Monday night,”said Barnett in a Wednesday morning interview, “I thought
we had an understanding--an agreement in concept.  All we were requesting was the support of the Council to begin
the negotiation process.”

Wednesday, 10 September 2008 00:00
?    After the success of its inaugural “Senior Class” program, the Carnegie Center for Art and History encourages the public to attend future programs in the series. The free program is held the second Tuesday of each month at the museum, and participants are asked to bring a brown bag lunch, with drinks provided. Seasonal “semesters” cover related topics and include a field trip and a graduation party. Participants can complete the whole semester or pick the individual programs of most interest.
    The first program in the Senior Class series was a field trip to the University of Louisville Art Library on August 12. Gail Gilbert, Art Librarian of UofL, presented an introduction to researching art. Participants learned about (and got the chance to thumb through) some of the best references for finding information about art and artists. One participant was “pleased to learn about such a comprehensive and convenient resource for researching art.”
