Watchdogs said Monday that they're outraged prosecutors filed no charges against National Park Service officials responsible for $3 million in illegal projects that damaged a sacred American Indian burial ground.
Michael Carroll weighed 325 pounds when he moved to Louisville to study engineering five years ago.
American author Harry Harrison, whose space-age spoofs delighted generations of science fiction fans, has died, a friend said Wednesday. He was 87.
"I grew up in a small town in Kentucky, and I was very overweight, maxed out around 325 at 18 or 19 years old," Carroll said. "I bought a really cheap bike and loved it. I was almost too heavy to be on a bike originally. After I started losing a little bit of weight, I really got into it. From there, it was more and more bikes, and now I have hundreds."
The bike shop is stocked with new and used bikes, and Carroll told The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/1pX1x5T) his goal is to help more people get in shape and join Louisville's growing cycling movement.
